Migrant Gang Behaviour.
I was really disgusted to read about the migrant gang behaviour in Cologne on New Year's Eve.
It wasn't so long ago that Matron Merkel's rose-tinted acolytes were proudly parading in the streets with their 'Welcome all Migrants' banners; those banners have all now been put away, and their wavers are all declaring 'No, it wasn't me gov', I didn't want them'. The do-gooders have suddenly been replaced by worrying vigilante groups.
I've said many times before that folk should be very careful before wishing for things they don't understand. Even Matron Merkel herself is having serious doubts about her rash Blair-like open door policy.
Sexual attacks against young women, by migrant gangs, are now happening daily across Europe. Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, and Sweden have all reported outbreaks. Is this surprising when most of the young men involved come from countries where women are treated as no more than sexual slaves?
Genuine refugees need our help; economic migrants with disgracefully primitive attitudes do not. They all happily accept whatever money is generously given to them, then spit in the face of the country that provides.
I know I'm going to receive criticism for saying what I've said; the truth is often difficult to accept. But there has been an embarrassingly heavy silence on this subject. These disgraceful gangs seem to think that they're above European law; I hope that they'll soon learn that they're not.
Of course these sexual attacks are not exclusive to the recent immigrant populations. But the overtly disgraceful behaviour by certain new arrivals is quite shocking. The violence is caused by a small minority, but that minority leaves mighty big waves in its wake. When wanting a new country to see you in a good light, it's also extremely stupid. They probably don't care.
Be warned; there is real danger lurking out there. If you don't believe me, ask those 100 young women who were brazenly attacked on New Year's Even in Cologne. I suspect we're just seeing the beginning.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
