LANGUAGE BEFORE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

Long before the term political correctness had any meaning there was a richness to riposte sadly lacking in today’s vernacular. Those in the public eye often captured the headlines with a sneering wisecrack at an opponent. Newspaper editors too risked their readers’ wrath with an occasional derisive comeback.

Lord Sandwich was scathing when he scornfully addressed John Wilkes, editor of The North Briton: ‘Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of the pox.’ The newsman retorted: ‘That depends, sir, on whether I embrace your politics or your mistress.’

This exchange has wrongly been accredited to Gladstone and Disraeli. It was a time when the English language was an art-form; when people could communicate with richness.

‘If you were my husband I would give you poison,’ sneered Lady Astor to Winston Churchill. ‘If you were my wife I would take it,’ he answered back.

Insulting witticisms must include Clarence Darrow’s: ‘I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.’

If you think red-top tabloid crassness is a recent phenomenon reflect on William Faulkner’s take on Ernest Hemingway’s writings: ‘He has never been known to use a word that might send the reader to a dictionary.’ The war correspondent’s retort was to the point: ‘Does he really think that big emotions come from big words?’

Pity the wretched author who received a memo from Moses Hadas. ‘Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I’ll waste no time reading it.’

Mark Twain, renowned for his sharp wit, once said; ‘I didn’t attend the funeral but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.’

Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw loathed Winston Churchill. Aware that his corpulent foe was better known for his toadies than for genuine friends, he wrote: ‘I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play. Bring a friend, if you have one.’ Winston replied, ‘Cannot possibly attend the first night, will attend second, if there is one.’

Any in a misplaced relationship may take heart from Stephen Bishop’s remark: ‘I feel so miserable without you. It is almost like having you here.’ Equally sardonic the opinion of Irvin S. Cobb: ‘I have just heard about his illness. Let us hope it is nothing trivial’. The playwright Oscar Wilde was famous for his wit: ‘Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.’

This brings us to the thereafter which prompted Jack E. Leonard to surmise; ‘There’s nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won’t cure.’

Thomas Brackett Reed might easily have been talking of today’s celebrities when he said, ‘They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge.’ As for enthusiasts of pop music Billy Wilder spoke for many: ‘He has van Gogh’s ear for music.’

FAR-LEFT COALITION PUTS SPAIN IN THE MORTUARY

1258978
Spain’s current Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez

It is emerging that the COVID-19 threat is grossly overstated and over-played and multi-national lockdowns disproportionate. One of the worst-hit nations is Spain.

The conservative and king-making far-right VOX party now blame the regime of ‘turning Spain into a mortuary’ during a question and answer time in congress. Interestingly, the George Soros sponsored coalition PSOE didn’t have a persuasive reply by way of riposte.

As a consequence of the lockdown, the nation has suffered the most calamitous economic collapse since the Spanish Civil War 1936 – 1939. Social services and benefit agencies are unable to cope, people, families and children starve, and the entire nation has been closed down by a virus that is no more threatening than the common cold.

1585293595_596141_1585293979_noticia_normal_recorte1

There is going to be a settling of accounts. If Pedro Sanchez, Spanish Socialist Workers Party has a brain cell he will be suffering sleepless nights.

One imagines Pablo Casado, opposition leader of the Peoples Party (PP) and Santiago Abascal (VOX) are keeping their powder dry. But, as evidence of over-reaction emerges these political heavyweights will pick their moment to strike.

Pablo Casado y Santiago Abascal

Whilst Spain is still under house arrest, social services and charities are overwhelmed, Spain is out of work, its economy destroyed, and distressed Spaniards looking for vengeance. The PSOE and deputy prime minister, Pablo Iglesias, of the left-wing Unidas Podemos party are likely to find themselves in the crosshairs.  The conservative – far-right opposition is building their case. They will strike when they think the timing is right.

Many nations are shrugging off the effects of the virus, downgrading it to the same status as the flu. Medical heads in many nations are coming together to put the virus into a reasonable perspective. Nations are returning to work whilst Spain is still in a vice-like lockdown. The nation’s tourist industry, second only to that of the United States, is in the mortuary too.

Corona media

When the political and media exaggerations and overreaction come to light the bullshit is going to hit the fan big-time. When it does, the bollock-naked Pedro Sanchez and sidekick, Pablo Iglesias will be standing right in front of it.

The floundering leftists know that they will be held fully responsible for the disproportionate response to a virus the effects of which are hardly worse than the common cold. One imagines that they and their Socialist Worker cohorts will find it as difficult to find work as the unfortunate Spaniards will.

Will former mainstream media, press and television allies, those who fanned the flames of panic, come to their rescue? No chance, having overplayed their hand, mainstream media is clapped out too. Scores of Spanish and foreign language newspapers and periodicals have been consumed in the flames of COVID-19. Many more will go; a few will cling on but will be a shadow of what they once were.

VOX leader Santiago Abascal. The party proposes to Make Spain Great Again

Michael Walsh international journalist and broadcaster: ‘When I was a weekly columnist for the Euro Weekly News Group, its main masthead, Euro Weekly News was 128 pages in size. Today, just 56 pages and it remain to be seen if it will survive the Holocaust of the Vanities.’

In March, Spain’s unemployment stood at 3.54 million. During April, it is expected that a further 2.5 million will be added to the rapidly lengthening queues of people desperately looking for work.

As newspapers, periodicals and radio station survivors fight over advertising crumbs the owners and editors are unlikely to be sympathetic to the politicians they led to the flames.

Mike Walsh adds: ‘Who knows, COVID-19 might turn out to be a blessing if we learn that the death toll attributed to it is far less than we are told. But, the big name victims of COVID-19 will be the old political order who put their interests before those of the people, and their mainstream media cohorts.’
