New Travel Blog starts in Haugesund, Norway

Marc Latham just started a new blog about his twenty-five years of travel, blogging photos from his trips backwards from most recent to oldest, starting with his flight from Stansted over Scroby Sands offshore windfarm into Haugesund, western Norway.

It’d be great if any of you interested in travel visited, liked and followed. It’s at: http://travel25years.wordpress.com/about/

Thanks.

Green Living Conference Called Grey to Green

Hi, it’s Wolf Whistzer, intrepid newshound with Greenygrey news. I was delighted to read in the Alternatives Journal newsletter that there is a green living conference in Toronto, Canada on May 21st and May 22nd called Grey to Green. Don’t worry, it’s not about making this Greenygrey streamline to Green.

The conference is about the economics of green infrastructure, which is said to be becoming a multi-billion dollar industry.

At the Greenygrey this is the kind of thing we like to see: good jobs being created while protecting the planet.

Although there might be some difficulties in the green-living evolution, we think it is the only way to provide a clean and sustainable world for those living now and future generations.

Cathy Freeman Joins Werewolf of Oz as Olympic Spirit

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Sorry the blog was dragged down into the human world the last couple of days, but sometimes it rains so hard it floods. Anyway, I think the best way to escape is into a fantasy world, so here’s another episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Answering the (Imagined) Critics

I imagine that Greenygrey critics will say that the social context of the previous two blogs was only to promote Marc Latham as a writer, and publicise his books.

There is an element of truth to that, as once you’re in the public eye there’s always a certain amount of self-promotion and personal gratification in everything good you do (as you see it), as previously stated on this blog: whether you’re religious leaders trying to win converts; politicians trying to win votes; companies trying to win customers (at least we’re not as bad as the Orlovs!); musicians trying to win listeners etc.

Yes, we want to be successful in the human world, but we’ve done it our way; the hard way; trying to keep true to what we believe; rather than selling out to the quickest buck. Marc Latham has probably lost £20,000 – £50,000 a year to the postgraduate average over the last eight years (poorest and most underclass white trash Doctor of Philosophy in Britain?), so he’s probably never going to make that back!

In fact, he’s made nothing from all the books he’s written. But he doesn’t want to be portrayed as a martyr, and does not regret taking the path he chose.

Cathy Freeman Joins Werewolf of Oz

Today’s episode sees Cathy Freeman join the narrative, as the spirit element of the body, mind and spirit theme of the story, as the original Wizard of Oz had a heart, brain and courage theme.

While we’re on the imagined criticism topic, we thought she was the best fit, as she was the spirit of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but there is probably plenty of ammunition for critics from all sides!

Right-wingers will probably think we caved in to multicultural fascism’s political correctness; Aborigine’s might accuse us of stereotyping, as Native Americans have complained about such things, as previously featured on this blog; while Left-wingers and South Park fans might accuse us of tokenism.

Maybe there’s an element of truth in all of them. As the British media is accused of being too left and right wing, the Greenygrey has tried to consider everyone, with a little bias for our core thinking.

Marc Latham thought he’d be a militant left-winger all his life, but the world changes, and he now lives in the fragmented post-modern political world, where issues are more important than traditional partisan loyalties.

Anyway, having watched the Sydney 2000 Olympics we still think Cathy was the best fit for the spirit role in Grey’s great epic classic story; over white male Ian Thorpe; which has a background theme (propaganda) of individuality, agnosticism, freedom of speech and equality. It was great to have her travelling with us. Here it is:

As we approached the Port Fairy dock I saw a commotion in the sea,
and wondered what it could be.
Moments later, I realised it was MiMo still grappling with MoMo.

Ian Thorpe Swims to Save Moby

It looked as if MoMo had the upper hand, and was about to deliver MiMo the death-blow, when what looked like a human thorpedo sped through the water and delivered a hit to MoMo’s underbelly.

MoMo flew into the air grimacing, looking out for the count, but managed to twist the other way before re-entering the water. I didn’t see it after that.

Cathy Freeman, Spirit of Sydney 2000 Olympics

The thorpedo helped MiMo to the Port Fairy beach, and then a spirit runner took over. I had seen the runner training on the beach, showing spirit to continue when obviously somewhat dispirited, and then saw her run over to resuscitate MiMo.

After docking, we rushed over to them. MiMo said he was okay, although it had been a tough challenge restraining MoMo. The spirit introduced herself as Cathy.

British Class System and Islamic Gender Apartheid

No Joking on today’s blog, which addresses a serious issue. The Greenygrey was partly created as a protest against the media and political classes’ obsession with white on black racism, meaning they ignored other prejudices, and opened the way up for the kind of white child exploitation revealed in Oxford yesterday.

That doesn’t mean that Britain shouldn’t fight against white on black racism, and there has been an issue to address, just that it should not be seen as the only prejudice, overshadowing all the other centuries-long prejudices prevalent in British society and culture.

Watching the news yesterday it was amazing to see how shocked the news presenters looked that the Oxford grooming and slavery ring had taken place. It’s been happening for the last ten to fifteen years, since New Labour‘s multicultural fascism and neglect of Britain’s poor provided a perfect environment for it.

Liberal Left Political Agenda

Alastair Campbell and Tony Blair’s public relations propaganda policy, ‘multiculturalism’ seemed to have social engineering at its core in a way reminiscent of 1930s Nazi Germany, combined with a witch-hunt against anybody who challenged it; labelling them bigoted racists; mixed with academia’s Islamaphobia concept, paved the way for the child victims to be groomed and then dismissed by social services; with social service members probably pro-Islamic like the university academics who boycott Israel but ignore human rights abuses prevalent in Muslim countries.

Desperate Chav or Greedy Jew

The British ‘liberals’ who tried to stop Marc Latham getting his degree, and made it impossible to have his say at university, are probably sharpening their demonising weapons: ready to label Marc either a chav right-winger or a Jew; the two groups mainly blamed for British and world problems in British academia during the New Labour years.

Marc tried to warn about the terrorism and grooming in his ICS department between 2000 and 2005, but he was ignored and persecuted, like the ‘chav’ girls and parents who tried to warn about the Oxford paedophile ring and others.

Islamaphobia Concept has Provided Shocktroops

Remembering his time in the ICS, there was a quote that ‘news is the shocktroops of propaganda’. Likewise, the ‘Islamaphobia’ concept has provided the shocktroops for the paedophile rings, silencing those who tried to reveal them, whether public or media.

While there are paedophiles and sexists in all social groups, many Islamic countries have gender apartheid at their core, and it is getting worse as a stricter code is spreading across the Islamic world; partly caused by the Arab Spring.

Filling Britain up with Muslims, and then providing them with a free hand to be sexist through multiculturalism, was an accident waiting to happen.

Imagine if Britain had filled itself up with South African apartheid supporters after the country’s liberation, then given them a free hand to be racist through multiculturalism. The liberal-left who have supported Islam’s right to act the way they do would be up in arms.

New Labour’s Multiculturalism Obsession

New Labour made ‘race’ such a big issue it overshadowed all the other prejudices: people forgot that race is just one prejudice, the same as class, sexuality and gender prejudice.

So the liberal-left and those who have grown up under New Labour’s brainwashing multiculturalism policy think that groups such as Islam have a right to be sexist and classist; it’s their culture; and that it is the underclass ‘chavs’ to blame for their position.

That is why the girls were not believed, and Oxford and other rings stopped earlier.

British Class System‘s Responsibility

If the liberal left think this is just an anti-Islamic rant, then they should read Marc Latham’s books; and he’s not including links, as he will probably be accused of doing this for promotion.

If he’d wanted to make money it would have been much easier for him to follow the multicultural majority, as those who did got the jobs, while those who questioned it were drummed out of polite society.

Marc included a poem in his first poetry collection about the Jersey Haut-la-Garanne care home abuse scandal; with Jersey being his birthplace, and a place he tries to remember with rose-tinted memories.

Likewise, Werewolf of Oz‘s background theme is about the deportation of British underclass children to slavery and abuse in commonwealth countries up to the late twentieth-century.

So Marc has been trying to advocate for the poor, vulnerable and disenfranchised for a long time. That is one of the main reasons he was a 1980s socialist, who never trusted or bowed down to the elite capitalist system.

He thinks it’s ironic that as the care homes have been starting to be uncovered and cleaned up, there are ‘mainly Islamic’ gangs waiting outside targeting them.

And also that the people celebrating Thatcher’s death recently, are the ones most likely to have been defending and providing cover for the gangs targetting the main social victims of Thatcher, Blair and Brown’s political policies.

And now Cameron’s government is also neglecting and persecuting the poor… but at least you expect it from them!

New Mirror Poem Comments on British Class System

Dedicated to the British class system and Islamic gender apartheid elites: to a decade of cooperation and support against the lower class and gender! (That’s irony by the way!!).
While recently travelling, and having time to look around, Marc Latham sheltered from rain, and saw it was falling as snow at a higher altitude. He thought it could be a subject for a Folding Mirror poem, and when it had absorbed into his mind a little later, he also thought it could be a metaphor for the class system. Here’s the poem:
Essentially Water, Landing Dependent
Snow falls on high
icing the mountains
evaporated droplets
randomly settling
above the dividing line
of temperature
Thirty-two Fahrenheit, Zero-degrees Celsius
longer falling
drop below the cut
driving hard
almost invisible
washed down gutters
rain muddies the ground
Marc Latham’s central site is the Greenygrey (http://www.greenygrey.co.uk), and he has books available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).

Green and Grey Separate, but Vow ‘We’ll Meet Again’

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Sorry we haven’t been able to bring you your weekly Werewolf of Oz recently, but we were operating a secret mission to try and find Andy Wolfhol. We had a tip-off that he’d been sighted in the north, but  when we returned to the blog from our travel quest we found a postcard with ol’ Wolfhol’s distinctive and almost certainly impossible to forge signature suggesting he is somewhere southerly.

I hope you enjoyed the last thrilling episode of Werewolf of Oz, when MiMo Moby helped save the day and I was reunited with myself. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to last, and this episode is a bit of a tearjerker; although that wasn’t to last either, and we’re now back together of course. Anyway, I don’t want to give too much away, so on with the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps show.

P.S. I also noticed that I had included Ant n’ Dec as a reference in this chapter rather than the first one they appeared in, so was getting ahead of myself when I added it afterwards in the last episode posting on this site. I remembered thinking of it, but thought I’d decided not to include it!

68.  GREEN AND GREY SEPARATE UNTIL ANOTHER DAY

Green and I were reunited once more into the Greenygrey; and Bonzo, Elle and Angry were excited to meet us together. When everything calmed down, we/I (Greenygrey!) cooked up a Bass Strait brunch for the whole bunch, and we discussed the previous day’s exciting events.

Bonzo said he’d been asleep when all the excitement happened; he’d been that dog-tired! Elle said Angry’d suggested she rush up and grab our assailant around the neck. I thought it was a good use of Angry’s mind, and Elle’s body; they certainly seemed to be getting their confidence back in those areas.

We all hoped MiMo Moby would survive the deadly duel, and wondered if we would see him again on our journey. My hat seemed to glow when we talked about MiMo. Unfortunately, there was no sign of Dai n’ Dec; we hoped they were safe somewhere.

Green for Pastures New

At the end of the meal we, Green and I, unfortunately had to announce that we would be parting again. The others were disappointed, but the Greenygrey world needed Green, and I thought I should conclude this quest on my own.

Green shapeshifted into an albatross for the long journey back to the Greenygrey world. We climbed to the top of the mast to wave it off, singing Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll meet again.’

As Green albatross reached the horizon it looked back, did a roll, and tipped its wings; before disappearing from view into the azure.
