Video: Nigel Farage & Ken Livingstone om EU

Ayatollah Livingstone. Ville gøre London til et fyrtårn for islam. Røde Ken. Som selv er ret velhavende. Og Jew Hating Ken. Mente ikke, jøder ville stemme på ham, fordi jøder er rige, sagde han. Heldigvis tabte The Labour Party stort, da der var lokalvalg den 3. maj 2012 og konservative Boris Johnson kunne fortsætte som Londons borgmester. Livingstone tabte også til Johnson i 2008:

No Representation without Taxation: Theodore Dalrymple finds much merit in a proposal from Ken Livingstone

by Theodore Dalrymple – March 13, 2012

Theodore Dalrymple is surprised to find himself agreeing with Ken Livingstone – so long as we also have a new law banning hate speech against the rich.

The resentful define the rich as those who have more money than themselves; while the politicians who play to this resentment never consider themselves as members of the rich.

No one better illustrates this last principle than Kenneth Livingstone, erstwhile mayor of London, and perhaps soon again to be mayor. Mr Livingstone’s company – presumably a sole-trader company – made £238,000 last year and £284,000 the year before. This puts him firmly in the upper one per cent of the population as far as income is concerned; he is, I think it fair to say, one of the rich.

The Bill Is $50, No — Wait — $125 Billion (and Counting) for Spanish Banks

June 10, 2012 – 7:33 am – by David P. Goldman

There must be somebody besides us ex-bankers-in-remission rolling around the floor laughing about the succession of headlines on Saturday afternoon. First came this:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The International Monetary Fund is estimating that Spanish banks need at least a euro40 billion ($49.87 billion) capital injection following a stress test it performed on the country’s financial sector.

and an hour or two later, this:

Spain will seek financial help from its Eurozone partners but exactly how much won’t be known until private audits are undertaken, the country’s economy minister announced Saturday. Earlier, European finance ministers discussed plans to offer Spain up to $125 billion (100 billion euros) in a bid to stabilize its banks — and ease concerns over the even bigger European debt crisis.

The Queen’s Decaying Throne

By Theodore Dalrymple – June 7, 2012

It is possible, on the Welsh borders where I spent the Queen’s jubilee, to believe that something of the old England remains.

Logo RealClearWorldOnly the advantages, not the depredations, of the 20th century are evident there: the food, for example, that would have been unutterably vile at the beginning of the reign has improved out of all recognition.

There are practically no modern buildings for miles around, constructed by those staggeringly brutal and incompetent British architects of the second half of the 20th century who have left little else in the country untouched, and touched nothing that they did not ruin.

A Continental Fantasy

Simple-mindedness and megalomania characterize the “European project.”

Theodore Dalrymple – 31 May 2012

On a flight from Copenhagen to Brussels, I read two publications that I see infrequently: the International Herald Tribune and Le Soir, the principal Belgian newspaper in French. Both, not surprisingly, had much coverage of the European crisis, and both used an expression that, to me, has a sinister ring: the European project.

Ball Hogs

Racism and misplaced outrage on the British soccer field

Theodore Dalrymple – Spring 2012

City Journal Spring 2012Whether racism or radical egalitarianism was responsible for more deaths in the twentieth century probably permits of no definitive answer. What is certain is that both acted as ideological justifications for mass murder carried out with unprecedented ruthlessness, efficiency, deliberation, and intellectual self-consciousness. As ideologies, however, racism and radical egalitarianism have had very different fates. Egalitarianism remains intellectually respectable, untainted by its bloody past and espoused by many decent people; racism is not tolerated even in its tiniest manifestations, and the term “decent racist” seems a contradiction in terms. It is perfectly acceptable today to utter slurs on the character of those born rich merely because they were born rich, but racial slurs are consigned to an infinitely worse moral category.

The Ugly Brutishness of Modern Britain

April 22, 2012 – by Theodore Dalrymple

A demotic egalitariansim, allied with multiculturalism, has rendered civility passé.

Theodore DalrympleA few days ago at a crowded bus-stop in the city of Nottingham, a fat youth of about 13 started to throw food at a friend. Some of it nearly hit me and landed on the ground just beyond me, making a mess.”Excuse me,” I said to the youth, “could you pick that up?”“Shut the f— up!” he snarled, with real hatred contorting his face.Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings, in England, come—obscenities. No one at the bus stop dared say, much less do, anything. For increasingly, the English are a people who know neither inner nor outer restraint. They turn to aggression, if not to violence, the moment they are thwarted, even in trifles. And those who are neither aggressive nor violent are by no means sure that the law will take their side in the event of a fracas. It is better, or easier, for them to pretend not to notice anything, even if it means living in constant fear.

Under the circumstances, it is hardly surprising that, according to a survey recently conducted by Lloyds Bank, a fifth of all people with assets of more than $640,000 are thinking of leaving the country. Personally I am surprised it is so few. Other surveys have shown that at least 50% of the population wants to leave, in the main to flee the other 50% of the population.

Symposium: Why Do Progressives Love Criminals?

Posted by Jamie Glazov on Mar 9th, 2012

In this special edition of Frontpage Symposium, we have assembled a distinguished panel to discuss the question: Why do progressives love criminals? The discussion will be based on Michelle Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, which has just recently been released in paperback. Angela Davis’ Are Prisons Obsolete? will also serve as a specimen for analysis.

Our guests today are:

Christian Adams, an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice. His bestselling book is Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department Visit his website at

Theodore Dalrymple, a retired doctor and psychiatrist, and the author of several books, among them the Life at the Bottom and Anything Goes.


Dr. Paul Hollander, the author or editor of fourteen books in political sociology and cultural-intellectual history. His books include Political Pilgrims, Anti-Americanism: Critiques at Home and Abroad, 1965-1990, and The End of Commitment.

A Little “Respect” Goes a Long Way

The odious George Galloway wins a parliamentary election in Britain.

6 April 2012 – Theodore Dalrymple

A recent election to the parliamentary seat of Bradford, in the north of England, has caused alarm in British political circles. The election was won, not by a candidate from any of the major political parties, but by George Galloway of the Respect party. Galloway is well-known as a leftist gadfly with a tendency to buffoonery, an eye to the main chance, and a record of public obsequiousness toward Saddam Hussein. He flirts with Islamism and has been suspected of corruption, but he always wins his libel actions against newspapers. He has been married four times, thrice to Muslims.

No one can say that the resounding defeat of the main political parties (Galloway received 56 percent of the vote, the Labour candidate 25 percent, and the Conservative 8 percent) was undeserved. Almost everyone in the country, of whatever political stripe, now believes that the British political class is unprecedentedly corrupt, opportunist, careerist, and uninterested in the national welfare. No one minds, then, that the main parties should have been humiliated.

Scotland’s Choice

Independence could arouse national pride; it might also force self-sufficiency.

Theodore Dalrymple – 22 March 2012

City Journal Winter 2012The electoral success of the Scottish Nationalist Party has enabled it to demand a referendum on national independence next year, raising the distinct possibility of a break-up of the United Kingdom. The decline of the U.K.’s status and power in the world means that belonging to it is no longer a source of pride, but rather of embarrassment. What better way to extricate yourself from the guilt of the British Empire—to the establishment of which the Scots contributed disproportionately—than to join the ranks of the aggrieved colonized by means of your own nationalism?

Oddly enough, though, if the referendum on Scottish independence were held in England, it might result in a higher proportion of votes in favor than in Scotland. After all, if Scotland had been independent, England would have been spared dour, humorless, and incompetent Gordon Brown, first as chancellor of the exchequer (finance minister) and then as prime minister. Without his dim-witted efforts, the economic crisis in England would have been considerably less severe than it is.

Stoned yet again: the geriatrics who refuse to grow up

More and more of us behave act as if we want to be superannuated rock stars.

By Theodore Dalrymple – 05 Apr 2012

We live in an age of Peter Pan. It is not eternal childhood that we seek, however, but eternal adolescence; not perpetual innocence, but perpetual aggravation of the grown-ups. The problem is that there are fewer and fewer grown-ups left to aggravate.

The tenfold increase in the number of late-middle-aged people who smoke cannabis or take other drugs by comparison with the previous generation is but one manifestation of a widespread desire for eternal adolescence. Increasing numbers of people – especially men – on the verge of old age dress as in their youth, as if reluctant to acknowledge that their youth has passed.

It’s A Riot

by Theodore Dalrymple (April 2012)

When the riots in England that astonished the world (but not me) broke out, I happened to be in Brazil. Thanks to the demand for my opinion from around the world – but not from England – I am glad to say that I benefited economically more from the riots than the most assiduous looter. It is truly an ill-wind that blows nobody any good.

After the riots were over, the government appointed a commission to enquire into their causes. The members of this commission were appointed by all three major political parties, and it required no great powers of prediction to know what they would find: lack of opportunity, dissatisfaction with the police, bla-bla-bla.

Commentary: Sickly sweet, and deadly

By Theodore Dalrymple.

Some men are born evil, some achieve evil and some have evil thrust upon them. Bashar al-Assad of Syria falls into the third category; but from the point of view of his victims, it hardly matters. For them, evil is evil and death is death. The psychological origins of a man’s crimes don’t make them less real or horrible to those who suffer from them.

The emails exchanged among the Syrian dictator, his wife and their immediate circle, published by the Guardian this week with good but not legally probative evidence that they are genuine, are those of a band of people physically insulated from the hardships and horrors of their own country and who are given alternately to self-pitying sentimentality and callous flippancy. In other words, the emails are entirely plausible as a picture of the life in the court of Bashar al-Assad.
