The leftist cult of victimhood has plumbed new depths when a violent racist thug is fêted by race baiting champagne socialist demagogues. His crime? Assaulting numerous persons of a different, well, hue. If the Witchfinder grabbed a police officer’s gun and tried to point it at them, he would expect to get shot too.
A hulking 6’5″ man grabs an expensive box of cigars from a small store and walks out. A small store clerk, of Indian descent, tries to stop him, looking like a child in comparison on the CCTV. The thug shoves the clerk out of the way and when the clerk bravely remonstrates turns on him menacingly. The perpetrator is stopped by police and tries to grab the police officer’s gun to point it at him. He flees and is later shot when charging a police officer.
Democrats in the United States, and ‘Labour’, in the United Kingdom tell us that the police officer was racist. On the other hand a Grand Jury made up of 12 people, 33% of African American descent, along with 60 witnesses of varying races, found no case to answer. The leftists respond that the there were ‘procedural irregularities’, which amount in fact to the Jury proceedings being made more transparent to avoid allegations of unfairness.
I am a white English guy. If, here in the United Kingdom, I punched out a shop cashier and then assaulted one of our armed police officers whilst trying to force their gun to face them, I would expect to get shot. The Witchfinder has a question to readers. If you acted like Michael Brown, what would YOU expect to happen?

Trains late? Blame Labour.
The Witchfinder travels regularly to and from Kings Cross St Pancras rail station. Whilst every major political party bears some share of responsibility for the decline in train performance, government figures show that train performance fell the most sharply under Labour, and have never fully recovered.
Britain invented trains, with the first public locomotive railway opening in 1825. Why can they not run on time? A quick factoid for the Witchfinder’s readers – the government measures train performance as an official national statistic (Public Performance Measure or PPM). The PPM in 1997? 90%. The PPM in 2001 after four years of Labour? 75%. Even today it has never fully recovered. The lesson? Don’t vote Labour.
Andrew Burnham MP must be sacked and disgraced. (Picture via Open Government License 1.0)
The Witchfinder responds to Labour MP Andrew Burnham’s literally unbelievable comments on the Mid-Staffordshire Inquiry, that demonstrate that Labour still does not understand the paramount need for transparency, accountability and whistleblowing in the NHS.
Think back to your schooldays. Imagine your class. Say, what, 30 people? Picture them all dead. Needlessly. Now imagine school assembly. Say, 300 people? Picture them dead. Now twice that. Dead. Double again. Dead. All dead. 1,200 tragic, unnecessary, corpses.
That was the reality of the Mid-Staffordshire Inquiry. Under Labour’s culture of fear and cover-up, ‘trust’ (some might say voter perception) was more important than truth. As many as 1,200 people died needlessly under NHS ‘care’.
The beautiful and mysterious ‘R’ – @LibertyLynx!
The Witchfinder has always celebrated strong Conservative and Right of Centre women who have stood up to hateful leftist harassment. This week, security journalist and commentator – the mysterious ‘R’ – better known as … @LibertyLynx!
Anonymous speech is a long an honourable tradition. The American Supreme Court has recognised it as so important that it is covered by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
To quote Justice Hugo Black… “Anonymous pamphlets, leaflets, brochures and even books have played an important role in the progress of mankind.”
Sadly many users of anonymous speech are abusers of the privilege engaging in childish trolling.
@LibertyLynx on the other hand is the reason we have pseudonyms. At nearly a 135,000 tweets she has had a lot to say since she joined Twitter in 2008. In fact, that is roughly 61 insightful and clever tweets a day for 6 years.
‘How to speak in public’, a training manual published by the Labour Party. From the Witchfinder’s collection.
What do former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and successful TV Presenter Myleene Klass have in common? Both are successful, intelligent women of non-Anglo-Saxon heritage who have been the target of racist, sexist and classist hatred by left wingers. The Witchfinder exposes the poisonous, toxic hate that oozes out whenever the skin of the left is scratched.
Look right. The picture is the cover of a book the Witchfinder received early in his training as a Labour Party spin-doctor. It is an official Labour Party training manual on public speaking.
The cover is a revealing portrait of Labour’s self-image. Chosen, designed and approved by Labour staff for Labour members it shows a shrivelled scowling hate-face behind a healthy smiling mask. The book is about how to speak in public and contains various rhetorical tricks for manipulating the public. To a disinterested observer, the picture could be seen to say this – “We are false, we are wrong … and we know it.”
Grant Shapps MP
The Witchfinder covers the recent humbling of another accuracy-challenged member of Welwyn Hatfield’s appallingly useless local Labour Party, who has been forced into an apology to his hard-working local MP Grant Shapps. Matthew Hopkins argues that Welwyn Hatfield deserves better than Labour’s Z-list.
iPhones are a glory of the modern age. They allow us to stay online whilst we are on the go – to listen to music, read emails and to work as we sit on the train to work. They also have the inconvenient habit of auto-correcting words in unintended ways, so much so that there are whole websites devoted to the topic. An innocent word like ‘sinus’ for example, might become ‘anus’.
The Witchfinder suspects auto-correct might have been at work in Political Scrapbook’s recent headline – “Grant Shapps threatened constituent [sic][…]” where the letters “onstit” and “e” are clearly superfluous.
The Witchfinder considers the arguments in the case of re D, in which Mostyn J and the Court of Appeal have a significant disagreement.
The High Court and the Court of Appeal have had a bit of a falling out over Re: D.
Re D concerned an 18-month-old child of Czech / Roma heritage, whose parents live in the Czech Republic. The question was whether the case of this Czech family should be dealt with in the UK or whether a request should be made to the Courts in the Czech Republic to take over the matter.
The case was managed by Mr Justice Mostyn, who gave a judgement in the High Court that the Czech Courts should indeed be invited to decide the matter. His judgement was later overturned by the Court of Appeal and then remitted back to Mostyn J to dispose of the remainder of the case. Mostyn J then gave a further judgement that the child could be placed with foster carers in the Czech Republic whilst taking a few swipes at the judgement of the Court above. The case is important because of its subject and interesting because of the strident judicial disagreements.
Your inquisitor finds writing about this case to be difficult, because he has the greatest respect for Lord Justice Ryder who delivered the judgement of the Court of Appeal as well as Munby LJ, who agreed with Ryder. Both are good and decent men – Ryder LJ is in fact the very first judge the Witchfinder ever appeared before back when he was a High Court judge. It is just that in this instance Mostyn is right.
Britain Does It Better! The new California consent bill is a poor copy of harsher but fairer British laws.
A new Californian Law to reduce campus rape by requiring affirmative consent has caused controversy recently.
The Witchfinder points out that the United Kingdom already has a similar but much tougher and better drafted law that has operated to 11 years without any unjust effect and suggests the Californians might want to look at UK law for best practice.
However the supposedly tough and politically correct Californian legislation in fact conceals a sinister leftist agenda that will let rapists off hook entirely.
The Witchfinder playing the role of the evil Keeper. Note the red robe. Red is the colour of evil.
The Witchfinder recently took time out of the relentless grind of human suffering and misery that is the role of a McKenzie Friend in the Family Courts. Instead, he did something more cheery and played a pre-release game about indiscriminate slaughter. This is the review.
There have been many attempts to remake Peter Molyneux’s classic Dungeon Keeper. In the original game the player takes the role of a supernatural force of evil, who carves out a vast underground lair. Heroes periodically invade, only to be slain by your horde of evil minions.
Dungeon Keeper was an incredible success, but sadly the series ended after Dungeon Keeper II. Critics and fans were left hungry for new features, especially the ability to go outside and oppress the good people of the land directly.
There have been many attempts to follow up the legacy of Dungeon Keeper, such as Dungeons, Impire and War for the Overworld. All of these have met with mediocre reviews, and whilst the Witchfinder enjoys Impire it simply does not approach the joy of the Dungeon Keeper series. In the Witchfinder’s opinion, the best Dungeon Keeper successor to date is KeeperRL (Keeper Rogue Like), which is why – despite being in alpha – it deserves this review.
The Witchfinder relates the tragic events in Rotherham to those ultimately responsible. A Labour council, a Labour police commissioner, Labour Social Workers, a Labour Government and lastly, Labour supporting paedophile rapists.
In 1997, as the ordeal of thousands of innocent young women and girls in Rotherham was just beginning, the Witchfinder was handing out New Labour pledge cards. “Keep this card and see that we keep our promises” said the slogan, on the back of a smiling picture of Tony Blair.
Had the trusting public known then that we know now, Labour canvassers would have been torn apart in the streets. Below, your inquisitor has produced a revised version of that pledge card with five promises that would have actually been true had it been published at the time.
The New Labour pledge card of 1997 re-written to make its promises true.
