Badger and British value

Published

on

badger84imageSALAD, readers. Funny thing, salad. As the temperature above ground climbs up towards the giddy heights of the low seventies on the Fahrenheit scale, it seems that everyone becomes obsessed with eating raw leaves, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs — all topped up with the sort or salad cream best used as wallpaper paste. Now, rabbit food is all very well. Especially for feeding rabbits in the period of time before they enter their natural state: wrapped in bacon and served with shallots. But not for Badger. He prefers simple, wholesome food and traditional British food. Lamb pathia, egg rice, samosas, and a nice naan bread. That sort of thing. Tradition suddenly seems very important to some politicians. No sooner have a few swivel-eyed loons and non-entities won their expenses rations for five years, than out come the usual suspects to wrap themselves in the flag and rattle on about British values, the British way of life, their pride in being British.

The Prime Minister, the type of man possessed of the surface charm of a film of oil in a puddle, has taken to the right wing tabloids to proclaim the importance of British qualities and , without ever quite defining what they are, said he is proud to proclaim just how important they are. in David Cameron’s case the fact he can claim William the Fourth, by the Grace of God, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and also King of Hanover, Duke of Brunswick and LlIneburg as a five times great-grandfather rather gives him a unique insight into tradition. The tradition of inherited privilege and the burden of never having to work a day in his life. But that is not the issue which grinds Badger’s gears today, readers. Let’s put aside David Cameron and his jolly band of brigands for the moment. We will come back to them soon enough. British values. That is what Badger wants to talk about. Or at least its abuse by a hate-group of sponging, whining, paranoid fascists to promote their vile beliefs. Facebook is a wonderful toy. Badger uses it to chat to his woodland chums about all sorts of things.

He reads interesting articles helpfully flagged up for him and uses it to look at photos of the Welsh landscape, particularly that of Pembrokeshire. Readers, if you ever want to know just how magical a world it is up there on the surface, Badger suggests you look at some of the photographs of it and then go and discover the landscape for yourself. But something has appeared on Facebook which Badger wants to warn his readers about. There is a species of vermin that has appeared on Facebook calling itself “Britain First”. This band of neo-Nazi scum are so low as to leave no opportunity — not matter how low — to attract people to their Facebook page and like their content. They do so by way of publishing photos (for example of Lee Rigby) with captions such as “Click like if you support those who defend us” or “Share if you agree that pensioners deserve more than refugees”.

These cockroaches have even set up a PayPal account to solicit donations which are ostensibly for charities related to the photos and captions they display. They have pimped for contributions for sweatshirts and hoodies on the basis that the proceeds would go to support British forces and their families. Lies. All lies, readers. Do not be taken in, readers. Do not contribute to the coffers of an organization that exploits your sentiment to promote an abhorrent fascist agenda. Do not give support — even unwitting – to an organization so extreme that it split from the fascist BNP to follow an even more fanatical form of deranged white supremacism. It is all very well disapproving of animal cruelty, but not even the type of deranged ding dong who wears a tin foil hat to stop communication from the Planet Spog would have joined the Wehrmacht because Hitler was kind to his pet budgie. Britain First has practised — and set out to perpetrate — a fraud. Pretending to be one thing and being its polar opposite.

Samuel Johnson said that patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. Britain First and its motley band of holocaust deniers, bigots, football hooligans and assorted other pond life, have rushed to wrap themselves in the cloth of patriotism as flag of convenience. The Charity Commission is now investigating their “charitable” scams. The Electoral
Commission is now probing these lice on the body politic. And if you are in any doubt about how toxic this pack of jackals are, this is what Lee Rigby’s mother said about the way that the Electoral Commission allowed Britain First to put her son’s name next to their candidates’ in the European election: “Well yet again can anymore heartbreak be thrown at me and my family: so heartbroken tonight. Electoral commission phoned saying that a party in Wales has stood for election in the European parliament named Britain First using Lee’s name to promote their party and some f****r from the commission allowed it to go through but [they] cannot take any action till after the election which is held on my son’s anniversary of his murder.THEIR VIEWS ARE NOT WHAT LEE BELIEVED IN AND HAS NO SUPPORT FROM THE FAMILY.
There will be a family apology from the electoral commission but cannot be made public till after 22nd of May. Lee’s legacy will live on through Team Lee United Forces and all the good I hope to achieve xxxx” Badger doesn’t know what his readers, their parents, or grandparents did in the Second World War, but Badger knows damn well what his grandfather did – and what a soldier like Lee Rigby would have been doing; shooting fascists not unlike those behind “Britain First”.
