Canterbury for Anniversary

It was my 47th Wedding Anniversary so I decided to take Valerie to Canterbury as she wanted a leather jacket and I knew the exact place the photo would tell you why I chose it. 

On the way down Valerie says I know a better place to park so I followed her direction and needless to say we got lost but that was not the problem we were followed by a Police car. When we eventually did park the Police, which happened to be in an armed response vehicle, said to me did you know you turn the wrong way up a pedestrian area and then ignore a further sign which said do not turn right. The only answer I could give was No I did not, I then asked if was to be ticketed or receive a slap on the wrist thankfully it was the latter. The Coppers were very pleasant but it seems the reason they were following me was that as I have a Big Estate they were concerned that I could have been a terrorist, which could use my car as weapon. I found this quite reassuring as it proves our Police are on the Ball. So be warned do not drive up Canterbury Pedestrian Precinct the wrong way you may get shot.
Can not see me going through that door

Any way after the excitement I bought the Leather Jacket for Val and treated her to a meal, Canterbury has a multitude of Café and Restaurants so we tried La Trappiste, which I have to admit, was a disappointment. I had Pigeon breasts as a starter which I have several times but never in a restaurant, this was tasty but tough. The main course was chicken breast wrapped in Bacon with a beer Wine sauce once again tasty but tough and the vegetables were over cooked so we did not eat them, would we go again NO. At £40 for 2 coffees, 1 starter, 2 mains it was not that expensive, maybe TUESDAY WAS THE WRONG DAY

Awards 1980

In 1978 my mother purchased the Old Methodist Church in East Street and it became the Sittingbourne Sports Centre where we catered for many Sports It is now the Swale Martial Arts Club and as the name suggests we cater just for Combat Disciplines. Every year we have a Honours Presentation for Club members the Photo below was taken in the 1980's when it was the Sittingbourne Sports Centre

LBC lefties and Extreme Vetting

LBC Radio programme at Weekends is a Lefty Snow Flake Show with presenters Stig Abel (what a name) Beverley Turner (who seems to been on the edge of tears if people disagree with her) Maajid Nawaz (who loves giving a diatribe of his views) they spent he whole weekend trying to insult Donald Trump and lets not forget the weekday lefty James O’Brian who has a morning show spouting his left wing views.
Credit to LBC they do let listeners give there views some times much to the annoyance of the presenters. Yet I did agree with what they said about President Trumps Vetting’s being wrong in my mind it did not go far enough. He should vet every Moslem Country lets remind people it is Muslim’s who are creating havoc and murder throughout the World. To ban all Muslims maybe wrong something I might add they are not doing but each Muslim entering the country should be thoroughly checked, remember ISIS has said they have sent terrorists in with refugees. It is also about time Western Government clamped down on Saudi Arabia and its allies who are evil regimes in many cases supporting Muslim extremists BUT nothing will happen Oil and Money come first. Interestingly all the lefty snowflakes complain about the USA and UK restricting immigration and then go on to quote the poor children, they never complain about Saudi Arabia and its henchman not taking any of the fellow Muslims into their country?
Our Lefty presenters go on to say that all those Islamic attacks in the UK and USA were from home grown radicals not outsiders but what they forgot to mention was that nearly all are first generation from Muslim Immigrants, these bombers were indoctrinated by their Parents and Imams not to respect our laws etc. . If the USA and UK had applied Extreme Vetting 30 years ago these bombing would not have happen and we would not get radical converts as well.
I continually hear that Islam is a religion of peace until I see massive demonstrations by the Muslim community condemn the radical and integrate then maybe I shall not believe it.

Foreign Aid a swindle

How can they Justify Foreign Aid
This list does not Mention Pakistan or India 

Once again people like Cameron/Corbyn/Clegg/Farrow use our money like confetti to make themselves look Good. They wonder why the NHS is failing and they wonder why we have people living on the streets. There are without doubt Foreign projects that need our help BUT each project needs to be administered and supervised on their merits.

No Speaky English

My next door neighbor is having some work done in his Garden a guy was loading the lorry. So being nosey I asked what are they doing? His Reply "NO SPEAKY ENGLISH"  what is he doing working in this country? I presume he was driving the truck if he can not speak English how can he read the signs?
Now many Eastern Europeans use our Judo/Sambo Club and they have become friends so it is not I am against all Eastern Europeans but you can understand British Workman complaining when workers are brought into this country to undercut them. Finally do immigrants have the same qualifications as our Tradesman I doubt it. One final point I wonder where they dumping the rubbish?

I had an old account with Santander which I closed they sent me a cheque for 07p. Now how much did it cost to produce that check? envelope, cheque stamp etc. I shall frame the cheque.

Election Therapy From My Basket of Deplorables

The most amazing part of this well written piece is the fact Maureen Dowd, a very liberal  columnist from the New York Times wrote it!
Maureen Dowd
Election Therapy From My Basket of Deplorables
The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships.
The country had signaled strongly in the last two midterms that they were not happy. The Dems’ answer was to give them more of the same from a person they did not like or trust.
Preaching — and pandering — with a message of inclusion, the Democrats have instead become a party where incivility and bad manners are taken for granted, rudeness is routine, religion is mocked and there is absolutely no respect for a differing opinion. This did not go down well in the Midwest, where Trump flipped three blue states and 44 electoral votes.
The rudeness reached its peak when Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed by attendees of “Hamilton” and then pompously lectured by the cast. This may play well with the New York theater crowd but is considered boorish and unacceptable by those of us taught to respect the office of the president and vice president, if not the occupants.
Here is a short primer for the young protesters. If your preferred candidate loses, there is no need for mass hysteria, canceled midterms, safe spaces, crying rooms or group primal screams. You might understand this better if you had not received participation trophies, undeserved grades to protect your feelings or even if you had a proper understanding of civics. The Democrats are now crying that Hillary had more popular votes. That can be her participation trophy.
If any of my sons had told me they were too distraught over a national election to take an exam, I would have brought them home the next day, fearful of the instruction they were receiving. Not one of the top 50 colleges mandate one semester of Western Civilization. Maybe they should rethink that.
Mr. Trump received over 62 million votes, not all of them cast by homophobes, Islamaphobes, racists, sexists, misogynists or any other “ists.” I would caution Trump deniers that all of the crying and whining is not good preparation for the coming storm. The liberal media, both print and electronic, has lost all credibility. I am reasonably sure that none of the mainstream print media had stories prepared for a Trump victory. I watched the networks and cable stations in their midnight meltdown — embodied by Rachel Maddow explaining to viewers that they were not having a “terrible, terrible dream” and that they had not died and “gone to hell.”;
The media’s criticism of Trump’s high-level picks as “not diverse enough” or “too white and male” — a day before he named two women and offered a cabinet position to an African-American — magnified this fact.
Here is a final word to my Democratic friends. The election is over. There will not be a do-over. So let me bid farewell to Al Sharpton, Ben Rhodes and the Clintons. Note to Cher, Barbra, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham: Your plane is waiting. And to Jon Stewart, who talked about moving to another planet: Your spaceship is waiting. To Bruce Springsteen, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Katy Perry, thanks for the free concerts. And finally, to all the foreign countries that contributed to the Clinton Foundation, there will not be a payoff or a rebate.
As Eddie Murphy so eloquently stated in the movie “48 Hrs.”: “There’s a new sheriff in town.” And he is going to be here for 1,461 days! A CONTINUED HAPPY NEW YEAR WITH PRAYERS!

Susan still fighting the EX

My Daughter is now divorced but after several years of in-fighting with her ex Husband which has cost her £15000 in legal fees and him we think about £20,000 for him some questions have to be asked

Her ex husband cheated on her having an affair with older women a grandmother at that. He offered to break of the relationship but still continued eventually he admitted he no longer want to be married to my daughter and left the marital home, leaving my daughter to fend for her and his 2 children. Not a very nice thing to do but things like this happen and although my wife wanted me to go and give him a good slap I said no. That would not solve anything and in the long run she would be better of without him as was never the best of Husbands. For those who know me they will be quite shocked how sensible I was.

What I do not understand is his attitude to his own children it took some time for my daughter to get regular payments for his children, when she did she got a pittance as being self employed he came up with some clever accounting. He now pays somewhat more still not enough in my opinion, is this normal for a Father to try to avoid his obligation to his own children? The main reason years after her divorce there is no final split is the House which they were both purchasing and this where the legal fees have gone, initially I offered him a large sum as a one off payment he refused. As he want to sell the house and have 50% of the equity, when it was pointed out that he would make his children homeless as the 50% equity for my daughter would not be enough for a deposit for a house and she did not earn enough for a large mortgage. His answer was that is not my problem go and rent a one bedroom flat on the Isle of Sheppey? So now the greedy legal profession are involved and the bills start piling up as there were several court cases with Barristers. First he wants 52% equity of the house when his son reaches 18, so my daughter pays for the house for the next 12 years and then only 48% that will not happen the court say a 40-60 split would be just but she (the Judge) told them to go away and negotiate which was nearly impossible with the ex. The next courts case is in February and hopefully this fool of an ex will see some common sense.

My main point is that a bad divorce can fuddle the Brain and common sense goes out the window. If her ex had agreed to take my original offer, which was a fair one, he would have had money in his pocket enough for a deposit and would have saved himself £20,000. So who has gained by his ridiculous behaviour of course the legal profession and there only thought is the money, the losers have been my daughter and that fool of an ex husband. Surely £35,000 would have been better spent on his children. I have helped finance my daughter but her ex has funded his legal fees himself, just shows how much money he has.

So if you are getting divorced try and act rationally I know it can be hard but it could save you a lot of money and heartache

Top 10 Most Retarded Things Sweden Did In 2016 Plus Balck Anglo

Over the years I have been to the USA on many occasions I loved the Country, found the people very friendly and helpful. I made many friends; I always enjoyed my visits but have to say both Val and myself enjoyed the visit to the “Big Sky” Montana as one of our all time great holidays. Although I am an Englishman and would never want to leave England, I could see myself living in Montana.
The one thing I noticed in the USA was the struggle people had in accepting they were American? Most would say to me I am Irish, German, and Polish American etc. WHY?  My mother was German and my Grandfather was Irish but when asked I say I am English. Lets be honest the only indigenous people on that Continent are the Red Indians (am I still allowed to call them that) and as the word America was a European Name they could genuinely call themselves by their tribal names yet the few I have met have all been proud to be called American.
So why do I bring this up well things have change in the USA since I first went there. Now you are no longer an American you are African American, Latino American, East Asian American, Asian American, Native American at present there is no name for White Americans but eventually they will be known as European American. My point is putting titles on people will only create division and racism; have to say Obama done a lot to create this name-calling. America you are a great Country a country to be proud of BUT remember you are AMERICAN no more no less
So what has this to do with an Englishman well yesterday for the first time a gentleman announced on the Radio that he was the 6th generation to be born in England but he classifies as a Black Anglo? This was the first time I had heard this definition it obviously came from the USA so are we about to have the same divisions in the UK? Interesting enough he did not know his history very well because the Anglo Saxons where a white tribe from mainly Germany and the name England was Land of the Angles or Angleland well that is what I was told. Now I have heard the Term British Black or Black British do not have a problem with that as it could be a description who is British and Black, also British Asian BUT would it be right to call someone British White?
I personally see nothing wrong in people from our old British Empire being considered in part British BUT I do not see why being call Anglo Saxon is wrong and considered racist

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: A Scandal in Bohemia [Jeremy Brett]


Couple of Interesting articles Katy is always a controversial Figure, the article from Fox News on the entertainment industry is very true.

So Donald Trump is being accused of being a Russian Patsy plus enjoys Golden Showers I expect he will be blamed for it snowing today. If what the Anti Trump brigade can prove their accusations they should come up with the evidence? Produce the Video Tapes that show Trump sexual activities if not shut up
The American people are not that stupid as believe the whining’s of a Liberal/Left Cabal who aim is to reinstate the Establishment figures that have failed them. The more they whine the more support Trump will get

Read the whole of this article and ask how you disagree with her

The Bear Referendum Sport for All

How things have changed in 1998 I wrote to the local papers complaining about the Euro and the EU and said we need a Referendum. The Media obviously used my position in the Sombo World and my nickname "The Bear" to emphasis the article. Although personally a Big Man in the greater things of Politics  I was just a small individual not to be listened to in fact I was ridiculed by the Political Class, Establishment, Celebrities  and the very rich. What a silly man and people like me to think that the ordinary person should be listened to.
Well in 2016 the ordinary man and women had to be listened to as in the UK the Referendum  said now you will take notice of what we say and think no matter what you the Political Class, Establishment, Celebrities  and the very rich say. The same happened in the USA when Trump won and I expect many other countries will have to listen to the ordinary man and women very soon

My interest is in Sambo,  Judo and Grappling plus Sport as a whole so time has come for a Referendum on how we manage Sport in GB. Should Tax Payers money be poured into just a few Olympic Sports that produce medals and create Millionaire Sportsman and Women or should it be used to benefit the population as a whole? 30 years ago we criticized the USSR and USA for using sport to promote their Political Systems but is not our Government doing the same now? Creating Champions and having Elite Athletes is essential for Sport striving to win and be the best is part of what sport is all about BUT also sport is about participation. The old Sports Council used to have emblem "SPORT FOR ALL" lets hope we can return to that

Lewis Connie and a Proud GrandfatherLewis with Cousin George

Lewis with Cousin George
It was quite a proud moment for me on Thursday. Our resident Junior Judo Coach Keith Costa 4th Dan of 30 years had one of those rare moments when he was ill and could not take the Class. Two of my Grandchildren Lewis and Connie have been helping Keith and he has been training them to Coach, as no one else was available to take the Class we allowed them to take the Lesson the forth generation of Clarkes to Coach at the Young Judo Club. They were overseen by my wife Valerie who is a 3rd Dan and IBF/BCSA Coach, she told me that she need not have been there as they gave an excellent well controlled lesson a credit to the Clarke Family and Coach Keith Costa.
They spent most of the lesson teaching throws and groundwork followed by Contest, this year the club is spending a lot more time concentrating on getting the youngster ready for competition and important part of Judo
Also on the Mat were young grandson George and my niece’s son Taylor. Taylor is Grandson of Tim Leeder 4th Dan a leading Judoka in the BJC during the 1970’s. It seems once a family get the Judo bug it spreads through generations.

Silent Witness

Why do the BBC always produce Drama with a Left Wing Luvvie slant the other day we had that ridiculous Sherlock and yesterday it was the turn of Silent Witness
For those who have not watched this programme it is about a group of Forensic Scientists who attend crime scenes.  These are not Police Officers but we are expected to believe they investigate murders and solve them. This week’s story was about illegal immigration but typical BBC the immigrants were not to blame for entering the Country but everyone else and one of the Villains of the programme was the Immigration Officer why because she was trying to catch these illegals, At one point an Illegal Girls is injured by her family our Female Scientists finds her takes her to Hospital, the receptionist rightly reports her to the Police but our Luvvie Scientist spirits her away and hides her in the Government Lab supported by her Boss. Now are we expected to believe that this would happen? If it did the pair should be sacked.
Shall I continue watching YES just so I can put holes in the programme? It is time the BBC  is either totally replaced or at best commercialized. Why should I pay a License fee to an organisation that promotes a left Wing Luvvie culture
