Looks like Sweeden is close to failure, or a right wing revolt.

" KnC, I'm still waiting to hear which SA university you seem to know so much about!!"

Trossie,

This may come as a surprise, but, there is a world outside JB and it was remiss, I know, not to have access to some sort of computer therein.

With regard to SA Universities however, if you could disengage your papier mache covered hand(s) induced by your euphoria concerning anything you consider to be detrimental concerning Labour as so clearly evidenced with your use of " !!!" at the end of just about every sentence, you may discover recent events at one University that supports my DNA theory.

Here's a clue...begins with a W.

Have to say I agree with chucks here. There's nothing quite like the proverbial "Brit abroad " to upset the local population of wherever the species appear, and in the UK, they are probably the nearest we get to a classless society abroad.... to be avoided at all costs by those of us who are not. Some of our so called "national traits" are utterly embarrassing to say the least.

That said, in fairness, Americans can be a close runner up, in particular those leaving the "Land of the Free" for the first time and thus totally bemused and confused as to life outside the County / State line. Like the Brits, it's the ones that choose to remain in their own secular world that are a problem for the rest of us who do not.

So far however, despite the wails of anguish and general thinly disguised bigotry offered by those more than qualified in their DNA to provide a confirmatory sample, Sweden has not yet, and neither has Europe for that matter. descended into anarchy, destitution and all out carnage......

In case they missed it.

Breaking News.

Sweden is to introduce temporary border controls in the south of the country from noon tomorrow, according to Swedish Minister for Home Affairs, Anders Ygeman.


Ygeman told a press conference in Stockholm on Wednesday evening that the Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket) had asked the government today for the introduction of border controls.

Therefore border controls will be implemented at noon tomorrow and apply initially for 10 days, said Ygeman.

Border controls will primarily take place at the Öresund Bridge and the ferry terminals in Skåne.

Ygeman said that border controls could be extended in 20-day periods.

According to Ygeman the introduction of border controls means that refugees coming to Sweden face three choices: to return to the country they came from, seek asylum in Sweden or select a different route (if Sweden had been chosen as a transit country).



Ygeman also said that the Swedish police had assessed that the Schengen Union trigger points regarding threat to internal order and security have been activated and so allow border controls to be introduced.



Mikael Hvinlund of Swedish Migration Board told the press conference that the agency had asked for border controls because it can no longer fulfill its mission.



"We can no longer guarantee shelter."

If the rest of Europe had abandoned border controls and was in the same situation as Sweden, who would the Swedes have to appeal to for assistance ?

They can't appeal to anyone now. Even the king wants the migrants.

Migrant crisis: Swedish border checks introduced - BBC News
The beginning of the unravelling of that EU dream? With that dream of uncontrolled borders, there are a lot of controls coming in!

(KnC, when you refer to DNA of South Africans, it's not this lot that you are referring to is it: South African police jailed for murder of taxi driver Mido Macia - BBC News? I really hope that you haven't got sucked into any of that Wits 'ancestry DNA' stuff, have you? People who use DNA info for real scoff at those types of money-making scams. Or, rather worryingly, you couldn't possibly be referring to the possibility of someone's 'DNA history' being a way of categorising them now? Central Europe had too much trouble with those theories towards the middle of the last century. Now, about Labour? Pah!!! There, had to do that!)

The sandal weavers will never wake up to what is going on. They live in a world of latte sipping denial.

...at what stage are the lentil knitters and those in denial going to wake up to what's actually happening...
When the far-right sweep to power in electoral land-slides. That is always the inevitable result of lentil knitting.

And Britain will have to come to Europe's aid to help it from itself, yet again. Same as the early 18th Century, the early 19th Century and twice in the first half of the 20th Century. We're now into the early 21st Century, so time for history to repeat itself. Europe just can't look after itself. It needs Britain's help.

.....and currently our interests are being handled by Hollands Premier in Malta as Cameron has scuttled back to Blighty in order to kiss the Indian Premiers arse

He must be serious about the problem mustn't he?

Hollands next Primeminister, based on current polls, will be so right wing, he will make Dave wet his middle of the road pants. Gert says what he means, and will have no problem in carrying out his policies.

Even legal immigrants can sometimes be troublesome

From The Shetland Times:

A thirty one year old man who made racist remarks to police officers about their Scottish heritage was fined at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday 11th of November.

Andrezj Galebiewski, of 70 Breiwick Road, Lerwick, admitted shouting, swearing and making racist remarks to three officers at the Lerwick police station on 12 August.

Galebiewski was then taken to the nearby station, but "seemed to take offence to the police officers' Scottish heritage".

Sheriff Mark Thorley ordered Galebiewski to pay £300 compensation and fined him £375 for his behaviour.

Cazelet....sorry about the delay, but thanks for the explanation earlier.


Trossie !!! ( just to keep you happy )

As you are still absorbed, so to speak, with Labour, and your deductive reasoning is thus impaired, here is the answer for you.

Note the third paragraph in particular under the cave system diagram...I am sure you can now understand my correlation therefore with the many on here and the UN thread.

What we are seeing now is nothing much when it comes to crises; Germany has seen far worse.
Maybe nothing can surpass WWII, but I fear your sanguine outlook chuks may be in for a shock. Wish I could say otherwise, and I'm glad I live where the government believes in secure borders.

Err ....

I assume that clip is full of fascinating insights into Europe's "forced suicide," but it seems to have been copied with the sound set to "Mute."

Look at it this way: When I moved here in 1987, my own choice, it was expected that Russian tank armies could probably only be held on the Rhine, or perhaps in front of Paris. That is because we are on the North German Plain, the sort of terrain where "you can see your Sunday visitors coming on Saturday afternoon," meaning that it's flat; there are only rivers as natural obstacles and the nearest Russian forces, totaling over 300,000 soldiers with over 4,000 tanks, were then less than 400 kilometers away in East Germany.

This was the funny thing about our stationing Pershing tactical nuclear missiles here. The German Left took that to be war-mongering, when it was actually done to reassure the Germans that we should try to hold the line against a mass of Russian armor, using Pershings for that. Otherwise it would have been simply hoping that the Bear should run out of steam by the time he got to the Rhine, the western border of Germany. Here, well, I guess we would have had to polish up on our Russian phrases and hope for the best.

Do you really expect that Germans are now supposed to lose it over a rag-tag crowd of refugees?

Two hours after you posted we get the Paris news. You're right, as an event, nothing much, just a few misguided lads out for a Friday night.

Glad to see that we are on the same page, Megan ....

No, compared to Götterdämmerung, it is still "nothing much," is it? It's good to keep things in perspective.

It will be interesting to read through all the calls for bombing "them" back to the Stone Age, as soon as they figure out where to drop the bomb.

By the way, Megan, I still get no sound on that video clip of yours. Do you have a link to it?

Okay, I am alarmed now, and here's why ....

The wife has defected, gone to Cuba. She's promised to come back on Monday night, but I live in fear that this fresh vision of Cuban socialism shall lead her to stay. Anyway, for now I am on my own when it comes to shopping, doing the laundry, doing the cooking, and cleaning, and suchlike essential tasks that had always been done for me. It's a rough life, I can tell you!

I was just down to the local Edeka, our version of Tesco, shopping for jumbo bags of chips, jars of dip, slabs of beer ... the usual single-guy survival rations, when I dropped a 2-euro coin on the floor. When I bent down to pick it up this bearded, smelly cove, obviously one of "them," came creeping up from behind and attacked me, and nobody came to help me!

There I was with this creep stuck to me like a perverted limpet or something right out of Deliverance, when luckily for me I remembered that I had just purchased a package of Muslim fanatic repellent, sliced ham, when that is like garlic to a vampire. I opened the package, extracted a slice, and managed to plaster it across his bearded mush, when he let out a scream of horror and ran off. Phew! That was close!

I guess Breitbart is right after all, when before this I had just written them off as right-wing scare-mongers. Now I think that we should ship them back to from whence they came and then nuke them until they glow. Sorted!

Surely 'democracy' is the will of a people is expressed through its politicians.

In other words, we elect representatives to do our collective bidding, while we get on with our work and raise our children. At least that's how I remember it as written by Plato.

Did anybody vote for what's happening in Europe now?

Not that it matters really. I think it was Stalin who said: "He who votes changes nothing. He who counts the votes, changes everything".

Sad days- glad I'm not part of it all.
