THE leaders of the free world have been gathering in Britain for a meeting of Nato member states.
This is the military alliance that has kept us safe for 70 years. A far more important contributor to peace in Europe than the European Union.
It was our bulwark against the Soviet Union. It is the one organisation dedicated to preserving liberal democracy.
Guess who hates it?
Yep, Magic Grandpa, Jeremy Corbyn. Much as he hates anything which defends Western values of freedom.
Corbyn was pro-Soviet Union and insisted they had no intention of waging war against the West. He was, as ever, wrong. The USSR had drawn up plans to do just that.
He criticised Nato at every opportunity and is on record as saying he wished it did not exist.
That’s just one of the reasons why this man would be an utterly disastrous Prime Minister for Great Britain. He hates all our allies.
Corbyn has taken part in a bunch of debates. But he has rarely been faced with the really difficult questions about things he has said in the past.
And things in which I suspect he still believes.
Or maybe he has changed his mind now and thinks he was wrong in the past.
The only way to find out is to ask him, I suppose — so here’s my open letter to the leader of the Labour Party.
I WONDER if you could clear up a few issues for me as I am deciding which way to vote next week. Such as:
- Do you still wish that Nato didn’t exist?
- Do you think that the UK should be in a military alliance with our closest allies, the USA? Or do you think we should be in an alliance with “progressive” countries?
- Do you still think that Cuba is a wonderful country, run by wonderful people, which is why you celebrate its revolution every year? Or do you accept that it is a dynastic totalitarian communist basket case which lacks freedom of speech and lacks democracy?
- Do you still think you were right to commemorate the deaths of IRA terrorists who murdered innocent British citizens?
- Do you agree with your best mate, the Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, that IRA terrorists should be honoured?
- Do you think it was right of you to have paid the bail fees for a suspected IRA member facing terrorism charges?
- Do you still support the Socialist regime in Venezuela which has caused riots and starvation and brought the country close to civil war?
- Do you still think the genocidal Islamist terrorist organisation Hamas is “working for peace”? And do you still consider Hamas your “friends”?
- Do you still approve of those behind terrorist attacks against our democratic ally Israel?
- Are you still a supporter of the anti-Jewish Islamist organisation Interpal, designated a terrorist organisation by the USA?
- Regarding your comments on the horrific 9/11 terror attacks against New York and Washington. You told the House of Commons, “What goes around comes around”, meaning that the USA deserved to be attacked. Do you stand by that assessment?
- Is there any foreign country or terrorist organisation which is hostile to the UK with which you DON’T have sympathy?
That’ll do for now. Answers on a postcard by Saturday morning please. As you were, Grandpa.
Robins over Labour
A WEEK to go! The kids may be waiting patiently for Christmas, but it’s election day I enjoy.
Especially the look on the faces of horrible people who’ve just been defeated unexpectedly.
Ha – take that! Now bugger off.
This Saturday I’ll be out campaigning in Cambridge for the Social Democratic Party candidate Jane Robins – come and join us!
We’re just a small party at the moment but the aim is to replace Labour as a sensible alternative to the Tories. And whatever happens next Thursday, Labour is not fit to govern.
Anyway we’re heading in the right direction. Jane’s just told me she’s found four people who are definitely going to vote for her.
I have no doubt whatsoever that by election day it will be 40,000. Remember – Vote Robins This Christmas.
Sad day, Pirelli
OH no – the Pirelli calendar has suddenly got “woke”.
Instead of showing beautiful women with their baps out, they’ve got lots of famous actresses to look really miserable, fully clothed.
If I wanted to look at a miserable woman wearing lots of clothes I’d just watch my missus putting the bins out.
And just because the likes of Emma Watson and Claire Foy are clothed, it doesn’t mean you’re not “objectifying” them, as the feminists would say.
Have the courage of your convictions, Pirelli.
Badges a bad idea, period
A JAPANESE department store has created little pink badges for female staff members to wear when they are experiencing that special time of the month.
It is a figure of a woman called “Miss Period”.
The bosses believe that these badges might help remove the stigma associated with this natural bodily process.
The obvious point to make is that, in my experience, the badges aren’t strictly necessary, you know?
Just count forward a couple of days from the last time they went doolally in the office, Bob’s your uncle.
Or perhaps that is the very kind of attitude the firm wishes to dispel.
Anyway, they’ve now scrapped the idea because the women employees, er, went doolally.
I think they should do badges for men whose football teams have just been hammered 5-0 at the weekend.
Weed all about it!
SHOCK news! Outlaw country singer Willie Nelson has given up smoking dope.
He is 86 years old and probably the best advert for cannabis on the planet.
Still going strong, still making albums. Now he says he wants to look after his health.
That’s not what outlaws do, Willie. Outlaws don’t give a crap.
Lesson in education
CHINESE kids are the best educated in the world, according to a new study. They easily outperform Western children – especially in the key subjects of reading, writing and arithmetic.
That’s because they are taught discipline, obedience and the value of studying. There are no fatuous lessons in PSHE or “resilience”.
And half the class isn’t obsessed with transitioning.
THE Forestry Commission has demanded that we all eat squirrels.
There are too many of them, apparently. Eating them would keep the numbers down. Well, anything to help out.
most read in opinion
Here’s my recipe for squirrel madras. Serves four. Take two squirrels, skin and joint them. You can wear their fur as a hat while cooking.
Roll the squirrel pieces in a little flour. Blitz in a blender half an onion, two garlic cloves, an inch of peeled ginger, one teaspoon each of chilli powder, garam masala, ground cumin and ground coriander. Fry this paste for a bit then add a chopped green chilli and a tin of tomatoes, salt and pepper.
Cook for a bit. Then add your squirrel chunks. Cook on a low heat for 50 minutes. Serve with chopped coriander, naan bread and pilau rice. And a handful of nuts, obvs.
I’m dead, can I get out of jail now
A PRISONER in the USA is arguing that his life sentence should be commuted because he died.
Benjamin Schreiber was taken ill while serving his sentence and reportedly “died” five times on the operating table.
The authorities have argued that because he was able to make this petition, he cannot be dead.
It is a vague line between the living and the dead and the two are sometimes indistinguishable from one another, as you will gather if you’ve ever watched Hillary Clinton being interviewed.
