Clarkson Backs Labour?

Keir Starmer has welcomed Jeremy Clarkson's apparent backing for Labour.

Unsurprisingly, the Corbynite section is having a mental breakdown over it.

I goes without saying that the Luvvie Darlings will be ungracious and ungrateful, and will continue to slag the Tories off!

BLM's Strange Runic Symbolism

Black Lives Matter are, apparently, holding another demonstration this Sunday (ending at Downing Street).

No doubt it will be peaceful, according to the media.

Anyhoo, the publicity material has two rather an unusual features. In the "A" of "Matter" and in the clenched fist resides a lightning bolt, which is the runic symbol used by the SS.

Surely shome mishtake!!!

The double-sig rune insignia of the SS doppelte Siegrune "Victory" or "Schutzstaffel" The sig rune (or Siegrune) symbolised victory (sieg). In its original form as the -rune of the Younger Futhark, it represented the sun; however, von List reinterpreted it as a victory sign when he compiled his list of "Armanen runes" .[2]

It was adapted into the emblem of the SS in 1933 by Walter Heck, an SS Sturmhauptführer who worked as a graphic designer for Ferdinand Hoffstatter, a producer of emblems and insignia in Bonn.[2] Heck's simple but striking device consisted of two sig runes drawn side by side like lightning bolts, and was soon adopted by all branches of the SS – though Heck himself received only a token payment of 2.5 Reichsmarks for his work.[3] The device had a double meaning; as well as standing for the initials of the SS, it could be read as a rallying cry of "Victory, Victory!".[2] The symbol became so ubiquitous that it was frequently typeset using runes rather than letters; during the Nazi period, an extra key was added to German typewriters to enable them to type the double-sig logo with a single keystroke.[4]
