Time, Times and Half a Time

A look at ‘The Times’ Wednesday 5th January, 2022

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

16th January, 2022

This comes from the Bible but I’m not too bothered about that right now. Except perhaps the middle word ‘times’.  In this case ‘The Times’ dated Wednesday 5th.

I have done an earlier piece on ‘The Telegraph’ headings, so time to look at the Times. Perhaps it will take me half the time to do it as I took to do the Telegraph one?

Then I would have time to look at The Times in half the time!!

Anyway, here it is, my amusing look at the headlines from a copy of The Times I ‘borrowed’ at the end of the day from the Sauna Steam and Swimming Bath Cloud. It was looking lonely so I thought I could give it a good home.

Here goes. Headings running through the paper front to back (hopefully). Those that caught my eye anyway.

PM: We can ride this out without new Covid curbs

Assume Boris is thinking (!) about spending on bumper cars for us all to ride in, on the bumpy roads that have not been properly repaired during lockdowns.

Why the government keeps spending money on kerbs when it is the main tarmac that need repair beats me.

But then the government like beating people.

Electric car travels length of Britain on a single charge

I am not sure what it was charged with. Loitering with intent to defraud the public? Wasting money on new technology instead of making old technology work much better?

Not wearing a mask, antisocial distancing, going unvaccinated, thinking the government was doing this for public health reasons?

Judge deals blow to Andrew’s hopes of dismissing sex claim

I understand this is known as a ‘blow job’. I mentioned this to someone whilst they were drinking their coffee and they nearly choked to death. I don’t know why. Apparently I had said something hilarious.

I said I couldn’t see what was funny about it, it was very serious. That generated even more paroxysms. I shrugged my shoulders. Some people are very peculiar.

But then I don’t get out much.

Army officer proves that South Pole isn’t all white

There is a photo of a nice looking lady. She is clad in that army khaki, with various colours to confuse the enemy. Her skin from what I can see looks quite pale with a sort of pinky light tan.

She is supposed to be the first woman of colour at the South Pole. Not sure what that’s supposed to mean. Surely there has been a woman with various colours there already?

As to proving the South Pole isn’t all white, well it has no doubt been covered in all sorts of crap that people from other expeditions have left before. So I doubt it has been truly white for a while.

But then if there is a pole at the South Pole, it ought to be dark so you can see it against the snow white. And then you will know for sure you are at the South Pole. I am confused.

Small British firm makes big money with Covid test deals

What a surprise. This should say ‘Small British firm makes big money with pointless Covid test kits. Big money kindly paid for by yours truly and a few million other taxpayers. Big money for a few elites.

Anybody writing and complaining and demanding money back?

Sussex charity raised less than $50,000 last year

This is the ‘Save Megan and Harry Trust from Poverty in the USA’. That money won’t keep them in champagne for very long.

Pandemic harms babies motor skills

Babies should not be driving motors in the first place, whatever are they thinking about??

Return of the Rings: thief sneaks first editions back to charity

This is rumoured to be Gollum who used his ring to make himself invisible. Personally I think it is a publicity stunt to gain free publicity to sell the books at a higher price.

‘Who will buy these, my precious, that hobbit over there, delicious, my precious.’

No10 rejects VAT cut on energy bills to help squeezed households

Household squeezed because they are stuck in bubbles indoors, possibly with people they don’t get on with.

Somebody has said the households are being squeezed to get the Jewce (sic) out. This sounds anti-Jewcist to me.

No. 10 has rejected VAT cut because the government needs all the money it can get to pay the MP’s for not attending at Parliament in case they catch Covid 19. a.k.a. the ‘flu. Or start asking too many awkward questions, like Covid 19 seems a lot like the ‘flu.

MP’s can be a bit slow.

Prostate cancer patients are denied £35,000 drug

That’s a relief. Perhaps they can eat properly in the first place with good vitamins and minerals etc., food and drink untainted with toxins.

Of course it helps to know that most cancers caused by toxins in the environment. And that the NHS and cancer charities make shed loads of money at our expense when the remedies would be don’t poison ourselves or get tested for cancer. After all, if we can’t trust the NHS nowadays, do you really think they have our best interests at heart?

I have a cancer diagnosis which is in fact toxin related and due to sodium nitrite and nitrosamines.

But do they test for that? No, they don’t despite this being known about for probably over 100 years. NHS useless.

Heart attack? Our 999 staff are off sick so take a taxi to hospital

You might be safer nowadays not going to hospital in case they decide to vaccinate you whilst you are not looking. Given that a lot of upright staff are being forced to choose between having the jab or losing their job, this does not fill me with confidence in the NHS’s abilities.

And it was low already given the doctors misdiagnosis of my health issues which I had to work out for myself.

999 is inverse of 666. Is this significant?

Two-week wait for tests leaves schools fearing shortages

As the lateral flow tests are all pointless any way, why are they bothered?

Unless they are thinking about exams as it were which are tests. Or maybe they mean the weekly spelling tests etc.

This may be the time it takes for teachers to get back to pupils with their test results. This can be frustrating for pupils.

Perhaps shortages should have been short ages. Children are on the whole smaller than teachers and hopefully younger. So short on ages. It can take ages for test results to come back.

I can’t see why schools should fear this. They are supposed to be in control of the situation. Perhaps they aren’t.


Care homes stop visits as 75% of care workers absent

Perhaps care homes are stopping care in care homes and leaving the residents to rot like in the last lockdowns? Perhaps friends and family should kick up a fuss this time and go and look after them themselves?

Too risky to cut time in isolation

In case people start wondering ‘why am I doing this, what the point?’

And ‘why am I doing this when it is all guidance anyway?’

Intensive care medics redeployed

From places where they were not doing anything anyway towards where the vaccinated are going as they fall ill because of the vaccines.

The PM has said ‘’… thanks to the fantastic effort to get Britain boosted, we now have a substantial level of protection.’ From what is not clear.

The big pharma companies are rubbing their collective hands in glee as their share prices have been substantially boosted. This will give them plenty of capital when they are sued for poisoning the people and mass murder.

Operations ‘paused’ amid rise of cases in the north

As in previous lockdowns, operations are being postponed again as doctors lose the plot again over the ‘flu. This time it will be more difficult as hospitals lose doctors and nurses to the firing/sacking of the competent leaving the incompetent in charge.

Administrators will not be able to stand in as they are incompetent, and there are only so many cups of tea and coffee the remaining doctors and nurses can drink made by administrators if the machines are not working.

Cause for optimism on weaker Omicron wave, scientists say

They say that this time it should be a smaller wave of crap from the government. Can’t see that myself.

There are still tsunami’s of crap coming out of Boris et al.

And we have yet to see what damage the vaccines do anyway. I am not all that hopeful.

Antivaxxer confronts Javid’s young child

Geza Tarjanyi has been allegedly charged with intention to damage property by the Metropolitan Police. They say the road to Sajid Javid’s house is paved with good intentions, as well as tarmac. Mind you he owns four houses, so I don’t know if this applies to all of them.

I assume knocking on someone’s front door is now likely to result in you being arrested. Possibly even if you are calling on a friend and a nasty neighbour decides you are up to no good.

This is a safer bet for the police who don’t like to arrest murderers, for example, unless it is quite obvious they have murdered someone.

Including a fellow officer killing someone of course. The Metropolitan Police like to look after their own you see. Cressida Dick is currently in charge. She is a Dick obviously.

I am not sure how young the daughter is that Geza supposedly confronted. I think he handed her a leaflet about the dangers of the vaccines. She is probably more intelligent than her father and might take things seriously.

Sharp fall in boosters as 9m yet to come forward

They are all trying to go to the back of the queue, desperately trying to avoid another potentially deadly vaccine shot.

‘After you.’ ‘No, after you.’ ‘No really, I’m in no rush.’

I hope people don’t fall out over it; they may cause each other some serious harm. Still, probably better than having a booster.

Maggie Throwup (sic), the vaccines minister, has apparently said that even on Christmas Day people came forward for their first and second jab as well.

This doesn’t sound right as I understood that you had to have a suitable period between each jab to allow the poisonous effects to wear off.

 Otherwise it would be too obvious when people started dropping like flies that the vaccines were, how shall we say, slightly problematic.

I gather Nikki Kanani, a GP (this is a General Practitioner, not a guide post or a Jeep, a general purpose vehicle) and deputy lead for the NHS Vaccination Programme has said ‘if you haven’t had your booster, please do come forward, as we know this provides the best protection from the Omicron variant, with trusted healthcare professionals on hand to answer any questions.’

We have had our roving reporter out and about asking a ‘trusted healthcare professional’ some questions.

‘How do you know what is in each vial?’

‘Um, well you see, its err not that clear, but it says on the NHS website..’

‘Yes, but what about each vial?’

‘Um, well you see, its err not that clear, but it says on the NHS website..’

‘Ok, let try another tack. Do you know about the human immune system and vitamin D?’

‘Um, well you see, its err not that clear, but it says on the NHS website..’

Deep sigh. ‘Ok, how long does the vaccine protect you for?’

‘Um, well you see, its err not that clear, but it says on the NHS website..’

The roving reporter gave up at this point as he need a wee and was fed up at having the piss taken by the ‘trusted healthcare professional’ .

He intends to look up what the NHS actually says on its website as this is easier than asking a ‘trusted healthcare professional’ nowadays.

He think ‘rusted healthcare professional’ more appropriate description as health care professionals rusty in their knowledge and not very professional either.

Cinema in frame for Icke conspiracy film

This a film about the conspiracy that the vaccines are really good for us, and being harmed or occasionally dying is really not that serious a problem for those who have the vaccine.

We tried to contact the dead for their comments, but they said they were resting under the sod or turf and that we could turf off.

Israeli study shows fourth jab raises antibodies fivefold

Glad to hear this. Means Israeli’s immune systems are working properly then. How long for if they keep having poisons inserted is debatable though.

TV twins died days apart

Apparently they were not in the same ‘bubble’ so were not allowed to gurgle to each other. Shame, a crying shame.

Some people thought they had plastic surgery, which they denied. Apparently they had taken part in ‘experiments’ in the US. It seems they were not vaccinated, so the mind boggles as to what they were experimented by, with or from.

Perhaps it was how many hours could they stand in Joe Biden’s presence without being sick at the smell from his nappies. Anything’s possible nowadays I suppose.

Starmer tells of pride in Queen and country

Queer Stammer (sic) has been trying to boost his standing by standing at the podium and saying how wonderful the Queen is despite the fallout over Prince Andrew, Megan and Harry etc.

Queer Stammer (sic) has not checked with the people how they feel about it all recently.

He is proud of the country, but lives in the town. He owns some land near Oxted Surrey where he grew up. Poor Oxted.

Still, at least he doesn’t live there now. There are rumours he might want to sell the land to developers despite it being greenbelt land. Poor Oxted.

Queer Stammer (sic) is not that poor. By my reckoning he could worth £11 million or so, perhaps more. As I said, he is not that poor.

Queer Stammer (sic) may love the country because it is very valuable and he can sell it for a lot of money. I gather the Chinese are keen to make a bid.

If Queer Stammer (sic) gets into power he may do a deal, as you can get a good discount for a country when it is going down the drain and its people are not very well from poisonous vaccines (so I gather).

Blair ‘deserves his knighthood, unlike Johnson’

Stammer said this. Well mate, Johnson hasn’t been offered one yet.

I think Blair should get knighted. If anyone has close contact with the Queen could they slip her a fiver or an Old Master to do it? She is getting quite old so she would have an excuse.

You know, instead of going over the head from one shoulder to the other, just go horizontally, a short cut. Save us all a lot of bother.

She could always blame Covid anyway.

Perhaps she could knight Queer Stammer again while she is at it. Just a thought.

Batchelor’s plea for a wife

There is a man looking for a wife. He is Muslim. He is called Mohammad Malik. There is a dirty great poster of him on billboards in the vicinity of the Black Country of Birmingham. He has dark skin so perhaps this is the reason.

Personally I think he is rather mad to do this, but then it’s in his name, Moh-am-mad.

He refers to incredible mosques. Perhaps this is a spelling mistake and he meant masks. On the other hand perhaps it is mosques after all.

Mosque of the beast rings a bell, but I may have misheard.

Patrick Stewart criticised for whitewashing Bard

He has been reading sonnets out loud during the first lockdown. He seems to have left out some sonnets because he cannot understand them. Someone criticised him for leaving these out.

Personally, I think it is Patrick’s choice. But perhaps a shame not to read them.

However, as a thespian one ‘really needs to put oneself in the Bard’s place and if one cannot understand the sonnets, one cannot do them justice, can one?’

The dark lady may refer to dark hair rather than dark skin. The Anglo-Saxon and Viking blood has dominated England, so dark hair may well have been rare.

Still, it is not a good idea to white wash a bard if it is a black bard. You can use chalk on a black bard and charcoal on a white bard. Just sayin’.

School erases Rowling over transgender views

This is the school I believe and the policy on LGBTQ.

https://www.boswells-school.com/search.htm?s=gender+ploicy

Schools have a duty to promote the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people in their care, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pupils and those experiencing homophobic, biphobic or transphobic (HBT)2 bullying.

The foot note says

2 Homophobic, biphobic or transphobic

Well, this says a lot about the stupidity of the policy, and the abilities of the person(s) who drew up this crap. One does not need to specify certain groups as being in special need as all pupils are needy in some way or other.

Like in needing a good sensible education, and how to layout text properly.

If you have just mentioned certain words and then put the initials in brackets you do NOT need to then have a foot note explaining it again.

Perhaps this reflects the stupidly of the parents sending their children to this school. Or the stupidity of the school.

The school is biased towards these letters of the alphabet, and they have omitted the new letters I understand that have been added more recently. Why not just put all the letters of the alphabet down just to be on the safe side?

Alternatively leave the crap off the website etc. and just love all the children and teach them to critically think properly as you should have been doing in the first place.

There are 5 notable alumni according to Wikipedia. 2 of these died aged 23 and 49 years old in odd circumstances. I can’t see the alumni are very notable in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t think Joanna should worry about this.

Anyway, whether the school was rowling (sic) over her transgender views is debatable. It looks to me like they were using a rowling (sic) pin on her views. Stupid school in my books.

Might explain why 2 alumni died in odd circumstances.

Kahn condemned over plan to cut drug prosecutions

It is understood that this includes not prosecuting big pharma drug companies for peddling poisonous drugs and vaccines on ignorant public.

Kahn is saying he khan’t or won’t. Stupid Kahn. Khan’t get things right khan he?

NB There is a picture of that staring woman on page 14. Get boosted nOw it still says. Sod that for a lark. Put anyone off getting boosted she would with a look like that. Some people believe this crap still?

Stupid people.

Bungling MoD chiefs waste billions

This is because it is alleged they receive ‘bungs’ for contracts. It should be con-tracts as the taxpayer is conned into having its taxes wasted on futile contracts.

Similar to the NHS and contracts for useless masks, PPE, vaccines, administration staff, doctors in big pharmas pockets etc. etc.

Similar to a lot of bureaucracy in fact.

NB There is an advert on the preceding page 16. It is from Palantir. This was the crystal ball that Sauron used to spy on his enemies. Nasty piece of work Sauron.

Macron nasty piece of work. Perhaps he has shares in Palantir.

Apparently Planatir helped get vaccine to millions via its software. So we know who else to blame then.

Breastfeeding voyeurs to face prison

Why the voyeurs were breastfeeding at the same time as voying I don’t know.

However, if they wish to look at tits, why don’t they just look at the front pages of the newspapers, for example. They will find such tits as Boris Johnson, Kier Starmer, Nicola Sturgeon, Emmanuel Macron, Joe Biden, Megan and Harry etc. etc.

It is not yet illegal to gawp as these I gather. Personally, I can think of better things to do with my time.

But if you are a darts player, why not tear out the pictures stick them on the wall and throw darts at them. The dart nearest the bull wins. NB the bull is where the bull shit comes out, i.e. the mouth.

Teach children at home every day, strictest head tells parents

Very sensible. Teach them how to wash up, clean the house, clean the loos, grow vegetables, look after pets etc. etc. Do not rely on teachers to do these things as teachers not always very good at these jobs.

Parents have tended to abdicate responsibility for children’s education, thinking the state will teach them how to think critically. It doesn’t.

Parents have tended to spilt up, get divorced etc. This does not help children think critically. Being critical of your husband/wife etc. does not always teach children how to think critically, but can merely make them critical.

Teaching them sacrificial love is hard work, but ultimately rewarding and good for children and society.

More women die when surgeon is a man.

I looked for information.

https://www.rcseng.ac.uk/news-and-events/media-centre/media-background-briefings-and-statistics/surgery-and-the-nhs-in-numbers/

https://www.rcseng.ac.uk/careers-in-surgery/women-in-surgery/statistics/

13.2% female surgeons.  Therefore far more likely to have a male surgeon. This means by and large more women may die regardless. The smaller % of women might mean that they are more motivated of course.

You have to be very careful with statistics of course. And careful not to frighten people. How good does your surgeon seem to you when you see him or her beforehand?

More research required, but this headline implies that male surgeons may not be good for female surgery outcomes and the reasons may be more complex.

As regards female Sturgeons more people of both sexes are likely to die as result of their stupid Covid 19 polices etc. Poor Scotland. Still, you voted her in.

Unless you didn’t vote for her of course.

Raw sewage spills triple in Thames

This is understood to have come out of the Houses of Parliament as usual. There is a lot of crap nowadays. Please see my earlier post re Second Lockdown.

Removal of many of the MPS’ may help reduce the problem significantly.

Sorted that one then.

It isn’t racist to believe in genetic differences.

Duh, even I can work that one out, Daniel Finkelstein. There is only one human race for starters.

Genetic differences are self-evident so each individual is different, but there are similarities between nation groups and families to varying degrees.

NB There is a photo at bottom of this page 25 with a shot of mainly young people wearing masks in a tube train door way. It says why venture out?

Seems fair to me. You might think they were all muggers or infected by stupid 20 and you do not want to be mugged or catch stupid 20.

JK Rowling would say they are all muggles of course.

The fatal loneliness of locked-up care homes

This is by Alice Thomson. Only worked this out now have we Alice, nearly two years later?

You say that most residents are protected by vaccines do you? Haven’t worked out very much have you Alice?

Vaccines may well be fatal, so sooner residents protected from more needles and needless other big pharma drugs the better.

I wonder what care home staff are doing? Friends and family should make sure that residents are all checked ASAP to make sure they are still alive at least.

By the way Alice, the government issued guidance – see gov.uk. Did you ever bother to check Alice? Sod the so-called rules, just create merry hell until access is granted. Love is like that when you care enough about the residents in care homes.

By the way, the so-called ‘cure’ of lockdowns, masks,vaccines etc was always worse than the disease, as this was the ‘flu, the internal toxicosis of the body which is individual to the individual and no one else can catch. I can explain, Alice, if you ask me.

Living With Covid

Covid 19 is the ‘flu, dressed up as a monster to frighten people as I have said elsewhere. We have been living with it for donkeys years.

So don’t make asses of yourselves and get real. Vaccines are pointless, needles have points, masks are pointless, antisocial distancing is pointless, hugs are good and necessary, like handshakes (remember those?), herd immunity doesn’t exist as we are told – see my Covid 19 Summary for explanations.

For more info if you are not clued up see link at end.

Vitamins C and D are basics necessary for living with ‘flu.

Honour Due

How can anyone justify Tony Bliar getting a knighthood?? Even ignoring the Iraq war, he is promoting vaccines and likes the pope. That’s a hanging offense in itself (after a fair trial of course).

Jokes not to tell on the NHS

For example:

‘GP’s will see you really quickly nowadays’

‘The NHS is there for your health’

‘Vaccination is really, really good for you’

‘The administrative staff are all really, really necessary’

‘The administrative staff worked really, really hard at home during lockdowns’

‘The NHS is really, really good value for money.’

Did you really get a reaction to the jab?

Yes. Next stupid question please.

Swedes fight fake news with ‘psychological defence agency’

This is a turnip for the books. What fake news they will fight is unclear. Hopefully that the vaccines do any good at all, that the Nazis/ Marxists have gone away and promised to be nice to us, that sort of thing.

Or that Joe Biden has a functioning brain.

That the pope is a follower of Christ.

That vaccination is not an anagram of ‘Icon Vatican’ (it is by the way, you can check).

Capitol riot ‘was fuelled by 650,000 posts on Facebook’

Apparently this has to do with the conspiracy theory that the Republicans were responsible for the 6th January 2021 ‘riot’ on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

As we all know conspiracy theories are always wrong until proven right. In this instance it is believe that the democrats have come up with this conspiracy theory as they usually do when they want to blame others for their own faults.

Like electing Joe Biden as vice president or something like that.

There is another conspiracy theory that the Republicans deliberately lost the election to show how fraudulent the democrats are.

There is yet another conspiracy theory that the democrats deliberately chose Joe Biden because he had no brain to speak of and the three female stooges could take the reins of power themselves.

And to show how incompetent the three female stooges are and to how fraudulent the democrats are. The democrats can be a bit mad sometimes.

The three stooges are believed to be a Kamel, a Polizei, and a hilarious Clunton. Or possibly Joe Biden’s sister, or love of his life, Valerion (sic).

Just before we went to press, another conspiracy theory has surfaced that the democrats always get things right and never make mistakes. Such as calling black white and white black.


Want to ban a pointless phrase? No worries

I would add to the list ‘Vaccines are good for you’, ‘masks should be worn regardless of common sense’, and ‘social distancing is sensible, especially when hugs need to be given’.

Someone has just suggested that ‘democrats are far more sensible than republicans as democrats always follow the rules even if this means jumping off a 100 foot cliff to cure the viral problem’ should be banned.

The editor thinks that if democrats truly believe this, perhaps they could do us all a favour and hurry up and get on with it.

Alternatively, if they don’t, it is suggested they start listening to those of us who are in the know.

US workers quit in record numbers

It is not clear if this is people like us or US people as in USA citizens. Please note Americans does NOT mean Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Brazilicans, Bolivicans, Chilecan’ts, Panama Hats, etc etc. Not all Americans are citizens of the USA although citizens of the USA seem to think so

Please note in the USA the workers are quitting because they are fired by moronic employers insisting on pointless or dangerous vaccines, masks etc.

Or because they can’t stand the stupidly of it all and are so stressed out. Do get it right Simon Duke (who wrote this piece in the Times).

Clinton creditors still owed millions

Apparently this is Clinton cards, not Bill and Hilary. However, they may owe USA taxpayers millions through their machinations and tax dodges (allegedly).



Eriksen: I was dead for five minutes

He collapsed on the field in a football match. He has said he is not afraid it is going to happen again.

It is not clear if he has had a vaccine. This suggests not.

https://www.news.com.au/sport/football/vaccine-theory-about-footballers-collapsing-debunked/news-story/013da222d688403b2568cc5e8404b1b0

ATAGI is the following

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Technical_Advisory_Group_on_Immunisation

An anagram of ATAGI is a gait. Sounds like a gate. It has been denied that ATAGI is funded by the Gates Foundation.

This is from the news.com.au site.

The incident has had a dramatic effect on Eriksen. As news.com.au previously reported, doctors still don’t know what caused his heart problems but they don’t think it is safe for him to ever lace the boots up again.

Has anyone told Eriksen this? Perhaps he has suffered some brain damage.

It notes: “The observed rates in Australia are consistent with international data. These data show a higher rate in younger individuals (particularly younger males) and following second doses. Most reported cases have been mild, self-limiting and have recovered quickly, although further follow-up of these cases is ongoing. ATAGI noted that a small number of cases were more severe, requiring hospitalisation.”

So some cases due to vaccines then. Perhaps Eriksen was pretending. Footballers sometimes do this I understand, to gain a respite or advantage.

No vax, Novak? No problem

Apparently Novak does not use a vacuum clear but then presumably he is rich enough to pay someone to do this for him. He doesn’t want a pointless or poisonous vaccine. Sensible chap. Perhaps he has seen the statistics on case numbers rising following increase in vaccinations.

He was given an exemption, and then his visa was rejected. I believe his visa is now reinstated. But it gets a bit difficult to tell. The Australian government do not seem able to run a piss up in a brewery, let alone a country. The whole thing is a piss up.

But then everything in Australia is upside down at the moment. It is the wrong way up to me on the other side of the world, so perhaps this explains things.

I can’t stand anymore, so goodbye for now.

COVID 19 SUMMARY!!!

Lest we forget – Armistice day 11th November 2021

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

11th November 2021

Another day arrives when we remember the fallen from two world wars, those who died in service of their country. That is, those who served in the armed forces.

Of course, we do also remember others who died, those who died in bombing raids for example. Civilians whose lives were lost, perhaps not in service as such but nevertheless who by and large would have been serving their country in large or small ways.

Whilst I have not checked what’s happening this year, last year it was rather different in the UK. Only small ‘crowds’ gathered, were anti-socially distanced (it can’t be called social), and often wore masks.

Pillocks.

I say this, because nobody seemed to double-check the gov.uk website where such things were guidance and advice, not mandatory.

In any event, Covid 19 is the seasonal ‘flu made out to be a monster to scare the living daylights out of the already fearful, conditioned to accept stupidity.

What the soldiers of WW1 let alone WW2 would have made of it I don’t know. There are those left alive from the second war, but I can’t find any comments at the moment.

This is the current guidance and advice.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/guidance-for-2021-remembrance-sunday-commemorations

I have noted that:

‘Photography is permitted, but the Metropolitan Police have powers to remove obstacles (such as camera tripods)’

But not Cressida Dick sadly. Removal of such Dicks is painful which is why a substantially male police service (not ‘force’ if you please) find it difficult to face up to.

Anyway, I suppose people will still be somewhat stupid this year and follow the government guidance and advice when it would be pointless to do so. As regards wearing masks, I suggest wearing them on your arms rather than your faces.

Black ones of course. This will show you are in mourning for the loss of loved ones.

These will be the loved ones who died as a result of government manipulation in so-called lockdowns and the foolishness of the populace in failing to love one another because of the ‘flu.

And kowtowing to vaccine mandates or social pressure and having poisonous shots which are injuring many and killing some. Which of course vaccines have always done, but people forget or ignore.

The day itself is marked by 2 minutes silence at 11am. In more recent years we have often had one minute silences to remember a few people. However worthy the sentiment, it is just virtue signalling.

I found this link. There are differing opinions.

However, I think this sums it up nicely.

Cheezzoom

‘We only have these minute silences for “bad” things that the media and people tell us that we should have a minute silence, but if we truly had a minute silence for all the terrible things that are happening around the world, all the death and destruction what is going on, we as a planet would be silent for god knows how long.’

It reminds me of the passage in Revelation where there is silence in heaven for about half an hour.

I strongly suspect this is the length of time reflecting the huge numbers who have died as a result of Satan’s machinations over the years, all those of God’ children he has murdered through wars, pestilence etc.

Perhaps someone could do a calculation based on 2 minutes for the dead of the first two world wars contrasted with the possible deaths since the world was created.

On a lighter note, one November I noticed a box in a café where my wife and I had stopped for lunch on Anglesey. It said ‘Please help the poppy appeal’.

My in-laws on the island live next door to a couple with a cat called Poppy, so I said ‘I didn’t know they were collecting for next doors cat’!

Of course, poppies are the reminder of the fields on the Western Front during WW1, immortalised it seems by Canadian doctor John McCrae who wrote his poem ‘In Flanders Fields’. The following gives more details.

https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/why-we-wear-poppies-on-remembrance-day

The memorial services that take place today and on what is called in the UK Remembrance Sunday usually include the following penned by Laurence Binyon

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.”

This link includes other quotes probably less well known.

Written by Wilfred Owen

My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.

The Latin text means ‘It is sweet and honourable to die for your country’. Is it a lie as Wilfred says? It depends, I suppose, on whether you think it was worth it. Horatio Nelson on board HMS Victory certainly thought so judging by his final words. But in a muddy trench in Flanders Fields, blown to bits with no trace of your body for anyone to find?

People thought it would be a ‘War to end all wars’. It wasn’t, we had another 20 years later. Even that one didn’t finish the job. That is because as I keep saying we are now in WW3, only this time a battle of words.

But people are still dying, many millions dying unnecessarily.

It is often said that the huge losses in WW1 were a consequence of incompetence of the generals in charge. There is a phrase ‘Lions led by donkeys’. This phrase is explained in this link.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lions_led_by_donkeys

It seems to me that this phrase can now apply in the USA. The nation is being led by donkeys, a.k.a .democrats!! After all, the jackass or donkey in the democrats’ symbol, so this seems very reasonable.

And lots of people are dying unnecessarily in the charge to deal with Covid 19, a.k.a the ‘flu.

On a positive note however, this was written by Dylan Thomas. I didn’t know he wrote this.

They shall have stars at elbow and foot; Though they go mad they shall be sane, Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again; Though lovers be lost love shall not; And death shall have no dominion.

The hymn ‘I vow to thee my country ’is usually sung at the memorial services and sung to music from taken from the “Jupiter” movement of Holst’s 1917 suite The Planets. Here’s the text.

I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,

Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love;

The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,

That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;

The love that never falters, the love that pays the price,

The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

And there’s another country, I’ve heard of long ago,

Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;

We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;

Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;

And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,

And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.

The first verse says ‘The love that asks no question’.  I do not agree with that; it is always good to ask questions. Why are we doing something as stupid as having a war where people die in their millions is a good question.

Why do we follow government diktats when they are obviously stupid is another. Like locking down or having a pointless vaccine which may well harm or kill us.

Still, the second verse of the hymn is better. The verse refers to a king. The king of course is Jesus Christ. He would answer questions, just as the heavenly Father answers questions if you ask Him. Like Father like Son.

The last line might imply that there is not a big fight to undergo. It is just it is a battle of words with a sword of truth tempered with love. Just read the gospels and you will see Jesus at work with His ‘sword’.

He does not mince His words, but they were said out of love even if some things he said were perplexing. He came down hard on the hypocrites of course, but even that is love as it was the truth.

In this war of words, World War Three as I call it, many are fighting for another country, God’s country or kingdom where peace reigns and the Lord God, the Most High is king.

And, as Dylan Thomas says, death shall have no dominion.

But for now many are still falling in battle, many are wounded or lamed in the fight. So let us remember the fallen today and remember Jesus too.

P.S. Lest we forget, there is to be a resurrection of the dead, all of them, so it is not all doom and gloom. And as far as I am concerned this had better be the Last Battle or else!

Cressida Dick

Cressida Dick

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

28th March 2021

Her full name is Cressida Rose Dick or even Dame Cressida Rose Dick according to Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cressida_Dick

I like the name Rose. A pretty name, reminds me of my niece who is also pretty.

As regards Dame, well all ladies are dames if you are the U.S.A. It appears she was awarded the ‘honour’ for public service in Theresa May’s resignation honours list 2019 according to Wikipedia.

I will probably write about such so-called honours in due course, but it seems she was awarded it for doing her job. And not very well of late it appears, as I will explain later.

The internet suggests Cressida means ‘golden’ which I find rather hard to believe. If I use Google Translate, translate into Hebrew, Hebrew into Greek and then back to English, it apparently means ‘Crisis’.

As one of the anagrams of Cressida includes this, I think it makes sense.

Makes me think of Supertramp’s  ‘Crisis, what crisis?’ album which I have. Superb in my book, and as I am of the same generation as Cressida Dick, she might know of it too.

I have tried anagramming her full name. Words include:

Microcardia – abnormal smallness of the heart. (From The medical dictionary)

Ascaricides – Ascaricides are drugs to treat ascariasis that is caused by infections with parasitic nematodes (roundworms) of the genus Ascaris (giant intestinal roundworms). The large roundworm of pigs (Ascaris suum) typically infects pigs (from Wikipedia – infects pigs, mmm, now where I have I heard that in relation to the police?)

Disordered – Definition of disordered 1obsolete a: morally reprehensible b: UNRULY

2a: marked by disorder a disordered room; b: not functioning in a normal orderly healthy way; a disordered mind From Merriam-Webster

Irksome – Annoying

arse oiks discarded – oiks in Manx language are officials including police.

arse oiks dramedies – dramedies are a mixture drama and comedy apparently

All of which are rather interesting to say the least. See some of my later comments.

Wikipedia says of the meaning of Cressida:

In later culture she becomes an archetype of a faithless lover.

I am not sure Cressida Dick could be said to be a faithless lover, except perhaps that she has no real faith in God. If she had, she would have sought healing. Perhaps though she is searching for Him.

Childhood

Information on this can be found from Cressida’s own lips in her Desert Island Discs interview, available to download here.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0002g3t

Her life was not easy in childhood. Parents divorced when she was eight and her father died when she was 11 according to Wikipedia. That’s hard, very hard. Events like that cause a lot of damage, and need healing before you can move on in life and be effective.

Apparently she was educated at Dragon School, Oxford, a preparatory school. All boys at the time, she got in because her brother went there. The school website lists her as an Old Dragon!

She might be many things, but she does not strike me as the archetypal old dragon though!

The Dragon School was a boys’ school for many years and she said in her interview that she was one of 2 girls of 60 in her year.

But she seems to have enjoyed her time there. Perhaps being the youngest of three children with an older brother it was all fairly easy to get along with the boys and join in all the games as she did. My wife has the same older brother and sister arrangement and I can see that is reasonable.

She talks in the same Desert Island Discs about dancing round and round to Swan Lake on the lounge pink carpet, presumably like a ballerina (she had just been to the ballet). I understand that; I was transfixed as a child by music. My mother said I used to dance round and round myself even at age two years old!

At university she studied Agriculture and Forest Sciences. The Wikipedia entry says she ‘gained a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Agriculture and Forest Sciences in 1979.’

I doubt that; in 1981 seems much more likely. She no doubt went up to Oxford as they say in 1979 which is what Balliol College’s website states – see link below.  It seems a pity she didn’t get to follow this up in the job market. She might have had a better life ultimately.

https://web.archive.org/web/20170413095723/https://www.balliol.ox.ac.uk/news/2017/february/first-female-head-of-the-metropolitan-police

I note that anagram’s of letters of Balliol College include ‘illocable’. The word is defined here.https://thelawdictionary.org/illocable/

As her father taught at the college, I find this significant.

She doesn’t seem to have been highly distinguished in her academic career; I have not found anything to indicate otherwise at the moment. I don’t hold that against her though. Lots of people can do well by learning on the job once they find something they truly love doing and from which they get satisfaction.

I consider that my career in surveying was rather like that; not always easy, but I found it very interesting and I seemed to do reasonably well, and some clients were very grateful. I made some mistakes but I believe I learnt from them.

But I don’t get the sense that Cressida has learnt from her’s.

Metropolitan police

Anyway, she ended up becoming a policewoman and climbing the ladder in promotions. Her history in the Met police is reasonably documented. She became Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis having retired from the

The following link indicates a police source as saying she had ‘not been appointed because she was a woman but because she was the best candidate’ – perhaps she was, but given her record this indicates how bad the police service has become.

Cressida Dick is no hero

Please note I used the words ‘police service’ above. Police force suggests they use force rather being there as public servants to serve us, the public, who pay their wages through taxation.

But then perhaps the words are part of the problem. If you join a force you expect to use force. If you join a service you expect to serve. There is a world of difference in the two meanings.

Desert Island Discs interview

Again the link below is interesting re her Desert Island Discs interview.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47185761

She makes the statements:

She said she hoped the that (Sic – poor BBC editing!) a lot of women are among the new recruits, to ensure a more balanced male/female divide.

“In the long term, in order for us to have the best of the best, I would like it to be 50/50,” she told Lauren Laverne, who hosts the show.

As Spock of Star Trek might say ‘Illogical’. A.k.a as ‘Bollux’.

To have the best of the best you recruit the best, not try to achieve a so-called equality which is meaningless.

Again Cressida says

“There is something about putting a uniform on and thinking ‘people are looking to me to make decisions and to look after them’ that makes you feel capable.”

Feel capable? Yes, but are you capable that is the question? Ok, I am a man, and no doubt I would say this, but that is a subjective female assertion. What are the results of your actions, that is how you should judge your work. In other words, are you really doing a good job?

This will of course depend on the level you are at; you may do a good job at one level but not in another.

Yet again in Desert Island Discs, “What I can say is that if I take you to see my response teams, there are people of all shapes and sizes and lots of lots of openly gay people, and the guys and girls just don’t think twice about it.”

Fine, but are they competent? All shapes and sizes? A silly comment, you can never have ALL shapes and sizes, only some. Otherwise it means the obese among others who will not be able to do the job of a response team, which I assume means firearms unit.

Police Record and Comments

Her record has been marred by various errors, frankly gross errors in my book.

Jean Charles de Menezes death

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/cressida-dick-police-interview-cannabis-jean-charles-de-menezes-bbc-radio-4-desert-island-discs-a8772021.html

She is recorded as saying “I wish, wish, wish it hadn’t happened, of course, but if anything it has made me a better leader, a better police officer and it has made me more resilient,” the officer said.

Jolly good, but Jean Charles is dead, Ms Dick. So the means justifies the end, improving your leadership qualities, etc??

Operation Midland looking into child sex abuse – see link below.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9248991/Cressida-Dick-STEP-amid-outrage-Operation-Midland-probe.html

The following is quoted from above.

“She said she realised the senior detective had made ‘a mistake’ and she ‘felt for him’.”

What about Lord Brittan’s wife? Did Cressida feel for her? Perhaps she said something that isn’t in the Mail’s article. But why was he, the senior detective, not severely sanctioned? He should have lost his job at least. Cressida did nothing it seems.

The following says she only had ‘limited involvement’, whatever that means.

https://www.standard.co.uk/comment/met-police-chief-cressida-dick-blame-operation-midland-priti-patel-b919588.html

The link below makes grim reading the appalling allegations made without proper evidence.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9248991/Cressida-Dick-STEP-amid-outrage-Operation-Midland-probe.html

I have not double checked regarding the Daily Mail’s list of officer’s involved but it does not surprise me. Our money, taxpayers’ money, down the drain on people who don’t deserve it.

They should be compensating the victims of their incompetence, not us.

London Bridge Attack – see link below.

https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/top-london-cop-hails-diversity-of-terror-victims/news-story/f9583bd44e6abe5ba26394f2d9376c97

The comments section in the middle of link post says it all. Yet she can feel for the senior detective mentioned earlier, but not the victims and their loved ones who mourn their loss? Perhaps she said something else that isn’t in the News.com article.

Even so, this is plainly a stupid comment by Cressida.

BAME bias in the Met Police – see link below.

https://smallthoughtsfromabroad.wordpress.com/2020/07/07/blog-114-cressida-dick-may-be-listening-but-is-she-hearing/

It is interesting to read, although as I have said elsewhere ALL lives matter and there is no racial discrimination only discrimination between nations, tribes and families. We are one human race.

And there is no true black and white skin, only various shades from pale flesh to dark brown flesh.

In the incident referred to regarding Tottenham and Soho, I wonder if the real issue is that Soho is a haunt of the LGBTQi+ brigade. And that Cressida does not wish to offend them. That would be more consistent.

2020 Christmas – see link below

There is reference to ‘I have no intention in any way of encouraging my people to be barging through people’s doors or knocking on people’s doors unless you’ve got, as we sometimes do – and then they can’t barge, they may knock – a huge party going on, which is clearly very, very dangerous and causing lots of concern with the neighbours.’

This is a bit thick, Dick. What do you mean? A huge party? Perhaps all the neighbours are there. Parties can be large without being dangerous, let alone ‘very, very, dangerous’.

Unless they are political parties of course. They can frequently be dangerous, but I don’t see them all being arrested.

Perhaps the government has asked her to overegg the fear, just to keep the pressure on poor old Joe public.

Sarah Everard vigil

Interesting post. Even Diane Abbott is saying something sensible for a change!

A further very long post with lots of pictures below.

https://eminetra.co.uk/thousands-of-protesters-in-london-late-into-the-night-as-cressida-dick-refuses-to-quit/351008/

It says in the text The force had warned those still intending to show up that ‘current Covid-19 regulations do not permit large gatherings’.

Did they really warn those intending to show up? Have they bothered to check the ‘regulations’? If you should happen to be a policeman or woman I will put this in capitals as you may have trouble reading this.

GUIDANCE, IT’S GUIDANCE AND ADVICE. NOT REGULATIONS.

There now, that didn’t hurt did it? Do what you should have done in the first place and look it up. And take a dictionary with you, or use the online versions if you need to understand words of more than 2 syllables.

If you should be one of those people who have a brain and use it, I apologise for that, it is not aimed at you.

There are pictures of people laying down, clearly a sign of how dangerous Covid 19 is, completely taken out huge swathes of the public.

Or perhaps not.

Cressida is recorded as saying in the link ‘Most of them would have been at those vigils and I guarantee also that my officers up and down London and beyond, if they weren’t working, will have been thinking of Sarah at 9:30pm last night, they will have been lighting their candles or pausing, and it’s something we care about very, very deeply.’

More feelings, but no substance, no critical analysis. No understanding that the so-called regulations are advisory.

And she can guarantee that her officers up and down London and beyond, if they weren’t working, will have been thinking of Sarah at 9:30pm.

Really? I would have thought most of them might be thinking ‘Thank God it’s the end of another shift’ or ‘Where’s the beer’ or zzzz because they are asleep.

You’re a bit thick, Dick.

I have heard the phrase ‘Thought police’ used of today’s police – no thought police would be better. They no longer seem capable of right judgement and will therefore be judged themselves.

They have been weighed in the balance and found wanting, to put it mildly.

Another interesting article, including ‘Taking the knee’. As it is said in the article, people may take the knee for all sorts of reasons. Including stretching their legs, for example. Cressida did ban the gesture however.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8547951/Police-NOT-knee-says-Scotland-yard-chief-Cressida-Dick-banned-gesture.html

I hate to say this (or maybe not!) that if the police don’t watch it they may end up taking the knee where it hurts, if you get my drift!

As regards Wayne Couzens, the police officer under arrest for the suspected murder of Sarah Everard, these are interesting links.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/14305581/murder-suspect-cop-wayne-couzens-hospital/

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/sarah-everard-mother-law-defends-23681941

Wayne Couzens looks rather a hard man. Reminds me of Roxy music’s ‘A hard rain’s a-gonna fall’. You may make your own minds up, but I prophesy ‘A hard Wayne’s a-gonna fall’. Very sad, a beautiful girl murdered, a police career ruined and a family unit broken.

Further thoughts

There is a funny story re her inability to smell cannabis.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/shortcuts/2019/feb/11/truth-about-cressida-dick-cannabis-problem?CMP=GTUK_email

Well, it seems her father drank and smoked a lot, as Cressida states in her Desert Island Discs interview. This might explain her inability to smell cannabis. Possibly he might have smoked cannabis himself, but the smell of smoke may just be something Cressida’s sensory glands have been overwhelmed with, and she can no longer pick up similar smoke smells in general.

The link below suggests some information on her father but I haven’t tracked the sources. Might be useful to read.

https://griceclub.blogspot.com/2012/03/marcus-dick-and-paul-grice.html

There are two contrasting views in the comments in the link below.

https://www.wikifame.org/wiki/Cressida-Dick

Personal reflections from CD – possibly best overall summary so far – note she loves the interest of it not perhaps about solving crime?? I would wish to do myself out of job.

https://ifchloecan.org.uk/interviews/cressida-dick/

It seems to be all about what she could get out of it rather than what she achieved. I find this significant.

The Spectator says something interesting; there is a reference to Cressida in there if you look:

https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-dragon-schools-bizarre-decision-to-ban-gunga-din

To Finish

I thought we could lighten the mood a while with ‘There is nothing like a dame’ from Morecombe and Wise.

And from South Pacific movie.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=There+is+nothing+like+a+dame&t=brave&iax=videos&iai=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DLjm9CDRAhMQ&ia=videos

The final verse says:

There is nothing you can name
That is anything like a dame
There are no books like a dame
And nothing looks like a dame
There are no drinks like a dame
And nothing thinks like a dame
Nothing acts like a dame
Or attracts like a dame
There ain’t a thing that’s wrong with any man here
That can’t be cured by putting him near
a girly, womanly, female, feminine dame

I wonder if Cressida Dick would have liked to be a dame like that rather than what she has become, which is rather male. She has lost sensitivity in many areas, But without much gain in efficiency it seems.

Sir Peter Fahy former the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police says the following regarding the Sarah Everard protests:

“But this is a really complex unprecedented situation of a pandemic – pandemic legislation cuts across the basic human rights and people are feeling – obviously – very emotional about that but then getting involved in a protest which then breaches those regulations.

“And as I say, there is an argument they [the Metropolitan police officers] should’ve just completely stood back and ignored the breaking of the law, but then other people would’ve criticised that and say ‘you intervened in other places, why didn’t you intervene here?’” Peter remarked. From

https://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-radio/1410438/Sir-Peter-Fahy-Ben-Shephard-Cressida-Dick-stand-down-resign-Sarah-Everard-GMB-video

Yet his Wikipedia entry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Fahy says:

In July 2011, Fahy commanded his officers to use their common sense and criticised police policies which prevents the police from helping victims or protecting the public in certain cases.

I refer you to my earlier comments regarding GUIDANCE.

The following link seems to sum up Cressida Dick’s career in responsible positions in the Metropolitan Police.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9361511/Cressida-Dick-embroiled-controversies-time-Scotland-Yard.html

And for good measure, a dose of Shakespeare.

Troilus, farewell! One eye yet looks on thee,
But with my heart the other eye doth see.
Ah, poor our sex! This fault in us I find,
The error of our eye doth direct our mind:
What error leads must err. O, then conclude
Minds swayed by eyes are full of turpitude.

In her Desert Island Discs interview she chose the hymn‘Lord of All Hopefulness’. This contains the following words;

Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,

Your hands swift to welcome, Your arms to embrace.

Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,

Your love in our hearts, Lord,

At the eve of the day.

Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,

Whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm,

Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,

Your peace in our hearts, Lord,

At the end of the day.

I have observed over my life that too many women rely on feelings rather than facts and their judgement is consequently seriously flawed. This is the case with Cressida Dick. She never was competent for the role she is now in, let alone some of her earlier posts of responsibility.

I am of the opinion she would have been better off in Forestry. I am not aware we know why she didn’t go down that route, except that she says in the Desert Island Discs interview she was ‘never going to be a star’ with that.

She has been promoted well above her pay grade as they say, and should stand down immediately. If there is no one suitable to take up the role, well what hope for all of us then?

Perhaps though it should not be a police officer, but someone with common sense, if you can find anyone with that nowadays.

As for hope, well the hymn says it for me. And for Cressida and for you as well if you want it.

Anyway, I have written the following for Cressida. P.C. stands for Politically Correct and Police Constable respectively. Larmes are ‘tears’ in French.

Cressida Dick

She makes me sick

With gender equality arithmetic

I really think she must be thick

This P.C. P.C. Cressida Dick

Cressida Dick she makes me cry

For my country by and by

And even though she seems to try

It doesn’t work, I wonder why

This Cressida Dick who looks like a guy

But Cressida Dick she has her charms

Despite her many and varied qualms

For underneath she looks for balms

And healing for years of larmes

Which she will find her Father’s arms

The heavenly Father is waiting, dear Cressida, to embrace you. Please don’t delay.

Please.
