Brief Encounter: Father Time barred from Clock

Brief Encounter is an English classic film released in 1945 and contained a prominent clock, standing over the railway station platform, where the film’s two lovers met. The clock from this film still works today, thanks to one man, Jim Walker.

Jim Walker is the latest victim of the lunacy of the left, and has been banned from several key areas in the station Carnforth in Lancashire. Allegedly, he was overheard by a delicate and easily offended member of the public, when he was discussing with another person, a national newspaper article which he was reading at that very time, on child migrants and refugees.


The article which Mr Walker was reading was examining the question of whether (economic) migrants and refugees arriving in Calais, were in fact in any genuine danger and also questioned the genuine ages of some of these “children” which in reality frequently resemble something closer to middle-aged brick-layers, in addition to questioning the legitimacy of drawing comparisons between the Calais migrants and the Jewish kinder transport children who fled to Britain in 1939. Apparently even discussing this serious topic was sufficient in triggering a nearby member of the public, into donning his armour of the White Knight Brigade and reporting it post-haste to Carnforth Station Trust.

Peter Crowther, chairman of the Carnforth Station Trust, which runs the heritage centre at the station, told The Telegraph: “A visitor to the station who was with his family complained about insulting and racist comments made by Mr Walker.” The beta-male then went on to threaten the Trust. He said that if action wasn’t taken he would report the matter as a hate crime to the police.

Employees of the trust were then subsequently tasked with obtaining witness statements of this horrendous incident of biblical proportion and ultimately decided to ban Mr Walker from the parts of the station which the Trust itself rents and operates. Mr Walker has now effectively gone on strike, refusing to wind the clock and keep it ticking. In a later statement the trust announced,

“Mr Walker has been given the right to go into the station to get the tools to maintain the clock without having to go into trust buildings and he is not doing it,” said Mr Crowther. “The clock not being wound up is his personal decision and nothing to do with the trust.”

Thankfully, Mr Walker has not taken this example of liberal lunacy lying down, he immediately retorted with the following,

“It’s a matter of free speech. I was talking to a friend, discussing a newspaper article which questioned the comparison being made to the Calais migrants and the Jewish kinder transport children who fled to Britain in 1939. I said it was a ridiculous comparison because the kinder transport children were being rescued from the jaws of death. I didn’t say anything I’d consider offensive or deserving of what’s happened to me. No wonder people nowadays are scared to say what they think. They are scared of being labelled racist. Where has the right to free speech gone? It is not as if I was Hitler addressing a rally.”

He then finished by saying, “I can’t get to the ladder without going on trust property and even if I could I wouldn’t do it anymore,” he said. “I don’t want to associate with that nest of vipers.”


Unfortunately, these kind of non-issue stories are becoming all too common these days. With everybody becoming offended by each other’s shadows, it’s pitiful, and an undeniable sign that society is regressing into a lump of great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies. In the words of the comedian Steven Hughes, what’s wrong with being offended? When did sticks and stones may break my bones stop being relevant?

Berkeley Rioters: The REAL Deplorables

On the 2nd of January, protests erupted outside Berkeley University, with the aims of silencing senior Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos and causing general mayham and destruction, $100,000 worth of destruction to be more precise. The university blamed 150 masked agitators for the pandemonium, claiming that they were not associated with the university and had come as an external organisation, known as ANTIFA.

What is ANTIFA? In short, it is a collective of barbaric thugs, claiming to be anti-fascist. The most accurate description I could find is as follows;

Middle-class champagne socialist/communist/anarchist white boys who don’t like nationalists or fascists. They consider themselves to be rebelling against the establishment, whilst upholding all of its ultra-politically correct views.

Antifa only dislike racism when its carried out by whites, and do not have the bottle to stand up against anti-white racism; leading to many people on the right to refer to them as ‘traitors’. I’d rather just call them morons.

This group of “deplorables” were the masterminds (and I use that term extremely loosely) behind the Berkeley riots, protesting against Yiannopoulos. They succeeded in their goal of getting the speech shut down, but seeing as these radical leftists do not possess even a modicum of intelligence and/or foresight, they did not predict what would happen as a direct result of their traitorous riot. The whole Western World heard the name Milo Yiannopoulos. His upcoming book “Dangerous” which is due for release on the 14th of March, increased in pre-order sales by 12,740%, sending it soaring to the 5th best selling book. They didn’t silence him, in fact they did the exact opposite. They handed him a platform with a mountain of money stacked on top.

One Berkeley student reportedly said, “We won’t put up with the violent rhetoric of Milo, Trump or the fascistic alt-right”. He couldn’t be more wrong. It would be funny, if this wasn’t such a severe problem. Firstly, not once, has Milo ever alligned himself with the Alt-right. And he certainly has never encouraged or condoned violence in any shape, form or fashion. The proof is in the pudding, violence is exclusively used by the left, not the right. Where were the riots after Obama was elected? Compare that with the election of President Trump. Following this turbulent episode, Milo ascribed the violence to the general “Left” and President Trumphinted at the possibility of taking away funds from the prestigious university.

I would almost like to see that happen, solely to see the smug, entitled smirks wiped off the faces of all of those spoiled brats. The sooner they realise that there are people with differing opinions to their own and that everyone has the right to free speech, the better for us all.
