For the latest grisly example of hypocrisy, “progressive” cronyism, feminist cry-bullying, and Deep State entrenchment, look no further than Britain’s Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies. Davies is the embodiment of Nanny State meddling. So much so that only last December, she proudly referred to herself — for these jumped up bureaucrats have no shame — as the nation’s “chief nanny.”This was in the context of swingeing demands she’d made — perfectly timed to ruin everyone’s Christmas — for more taxes on sugary soft drinks, on milky drinks, and on foods high in salt. The Nanny State in excelsis, waging war on people’s private pleasures and freedoms. The “chief nanny” has form. In 2016, she declared that there is no safe limit on the amount of alcohol that can be drunk. She urged women “to do as I do and think about the risk of cancer before having a glass of wine.” So how … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Another Plum Job for a Nanny State Quangocrat?

Nanny reference questions
Mary Poppins always knew how to make an entrance, and her return in the new Disney musical is as magical as ever. It just took a little longer than most expected – a sequel we've waited more than half a century to see. The children she cared for have grown, but their nanny is mostly unchanged: Michael Banks: "Good heavens, it really is you. You hardly seem to have aged at all." Unchanged, except for the actress who now plays her, Emily Blunt. She described the character as a superhero. "I think she is. But yet, what I really like about her is the great mystery" Blunt said. "She doesn't reveal her inner workings to anybody, so you have no idea who she is, where she's come from. "And she's completely eccentric, batty, weird, funny, very vain." Blunt's Mary Poppins is a tad more tart than the Mary moviegoers first fell in love with back in 1964. But Blunt did not allow Julie Andrews' Oscar-winning performance to intimidate her. Correspondent Anthony Mason asked, … [Read more...] about Emily Blunt on “Mary Poppins Returns”

Rosenstein, to secretly tape conversations with President Trump but viewed it as too risky and unlikely to deliver meaningful information. F.B.I. officials dismissed the idea within days, according to James A. Baker, then the bureau’s general counsel, but his testimony shows that F.B.I. leaders played out its potential ramifications before rejecting it. Mr. Baker’s account contradicts Mr. Rosenstein’s denial of a New York Times article last month that said he suggested recording the president and discussed recruiting cabinet members to … [Read more...] about Former Top F.B.I.

Lock her up! Lock her up!” The arena boomed with shouting voices and kept going. “Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!” Mr. Trump smiled and soaked it in. Then he assailed the Democrats for becoming “an angry left-wing mob.” From the pot-and-kettle department of politics, the president is trying to turn the tables on his opponents this fall. A master of divide-and-conquer campaigning who gives critics belittling nicknames, calls his foes “evil people” and has encouraged … [Read more...] about Trump’s Contradiction: Assailing ‘Left-Wing Mob’ as Crowd Chants ‘Lock Her Up’
