Boundless Hypocrisy Over Kate’s Tits

Public Breast-beating Over Middleton Paparazzi Photos

You must understand that there is no news today.
Everything is celebrity, sport and royal in the UK.
Everyone has a media correspondent, a sports correspondent and a royal correspondent.
Reporters just report on the latest twitter feed.  No-one searches.

There are several aspects to this boob photos media blizzard.

  • There’s the mass media  almost to a man, fawning and groping at half truths.
  • There are many ordinary people wondering what’s going on.

So I’ll explain.                                  (As I see it, natch)

If you want the tit and bum shots, check at the end.  If you can’t wait, click here for the latest information on modified sweat glands.


Private Pictures, Public Place?

We now have several (mainly establishment types) people making exaggerated claims about the camera location.  Well, I’ve checked.

The photos were NOT taken “over a mile and a half away”, nor “well over a mile” away, nor “about a mile away”, nor “from a long way off, in private woods”, but about half a mile away.  The house is clearly visible, along with the windows, railings and garden stuff that appear in the photos on Google Maps Streetview.

I’ve chosen a point ~ 900m from the building as one of many good vantage points.  Go down now to see it.

If I used my hand-held camera taking a shot, I could see the whites of the eyes….  Yes really!  To demonstrate — here are two pictures that show the capability of my hand-held Panasonic Lumix, DMC-TZ30. 

Be careful when clicking as I’ve uploaded the shots at full resolution.  Once loaded, click the little green arrow to see the pictures in all their full-size glory – you will need to scroll both vertically and horizontally to find the yacht when on full-size.

They are hand-held, on a normal day, just like many of my recent shots from my recent French vacation.  I have many high-res scenic shots – I’ll have to check them through – who knows what I’ll find LOL.

No Zoom of Yacht - Can you see it?

No Zoom:  There’s a Yacht here – Can you see it?
Click to see just how really small it is.

20x Optical Zoom of Yacht

20x Optical Zoom of Yacht – Now can you see it?
Click and you’ll see a tanker in the background which I couldn’t see at all with the naked eye.
These two shots and more are visible at lower resolution here on Christine’s Beach Hut.

If someone was on the yacht, I could see them.  The boat is several miles offshore – nearly on the horizon actually!   So don’t let the Streetview shot below fool you – the house is a lot closer than it looks, even from the position I’ve chosen here.  It is only 900 metres away!

The house is dead centre in this link.   So it is a private house visible in public, much like me in my bedroom at night with the curtains open, okay?  My camera could have easily shown them doing anything. Easily.  Yet if I can be easily seen in my bedroom at night (i.e. clearly a private place as they keep repeating) I can get done for indecent exposure?  Right?

Hopefully, by seeing the capability of my own camera in conjunction with a normal Streetview of the area, you can now see how incongruous the claims that this is a private place actually are?

(p.s. pan left – it’s a lovely view!)

But surely, 900m is a Long Way, isn’t it?

The firstworldwar.com website shows the standard issue British rifle  in WW1 as having guaranteed accuracy up to 600m.  This had no optical scope, just sights to be used by a normal man.  This means a kill shot at 600m, not just wounding, which shows the hand/eye/gun precision easily possible from anyone.  900 metres doesn’t look so far now, eh?
I also remember reading in “With a Machine Gun to Cambrai”, the author George Coppard saying that he picked off men at a similar range with just one or two rounds from his heavy machine gun.  This is despite the juddery nature of a heavy machine gun.

Again, 900 metres doesn’t look so far now, eh?


A Right to Privacy?

Well almost.

The royals have done very well over the last few years with Elizabeth II’s annus horribalis being mostly forgotten.  But let’s cast our minds back, shall we?

At that time, Diana and Fergie had caused much embarrassment with their girlie antics.  Charlie’s behaviour outside the public face of marital fidelity was well known and became ever-more detailed as time passed.  Phil the Greek was his usual self and scandal after scandal built up until the Castle burnt down.  So that was that – then.

Now we have Harry getting his kit off to the amusement of the world (in a €6000 a night hotel suite on a serviceman’s salary, note),  but being dismissed as “just letting off steam but must be more careful in future”.  And almost synchronously in time with Harry, it now appears, Kate & Wills feel so assured in their new-found popularity that they can do anything.  They certainly have the money for it.

But you know – they can’t.

If they want the esteemed position that they publicly project and behind which the combined forces of a fawning mass media enforce, then they must behave like it.  They cannot behave like normal holidaymakers and not expect a come-back no matter how “ordinary” Kate was supposed to have been.  You can’t be a “highness” and not expect attention?   They cannot say and do anything – for one thing, our constitution forbids it!

For another, the public will hate it and they need the public much more than we need them.

Why don’t they all just go away?  I won’t mind a bit.  Maybe this’ll be a turning point as the penny drops?

Privacy – What Privacy? – added 18/9/2012

The BBC has now leapt onto my referencing Google Streetview as an aid to showing relative privacy.  Of course, the devil-in-the-detail of this is not mentioned as I’ve done above.

BBC Copies Me - Chateau d'Autet

But that’s not my point here, is it?  Neither is my point that criminal proceedings are now starting.   My point is that for all of us….

Our Own Privacy is Zilch.

We are (or will be):

  • Subjected to full intimate  body scans at airports by faceless private “agencies”
  • Have our emails and web activity saved and analysed at leisure by faceless private “agencies”
  • Followed down every street, across every junction, inside every shop by CCTV “security” cameras run by faceless private “agencies”
  • Have our phones tapped by faceless private “agencies”
  • Have our shopping habits monitored by faceless private “businesses”
  • Have our finances, credit cards, driving licences all cross-referenced ad infinitum with our passports, our insurances, our taxes and more – by faceless private “agencies”

…and all of this is done to us while the few that own these “agencies” and “businesses” flaunt their wealth, hide their money, holiday in their tax havens, pay no taxes, are as secret and private as they choose to be, collude to manage information and the law, and then have the audacity to tell us how to behave.  Royalty is just the icing on top of a very rich cake…..

Charles & Camilla recently visited the notable tax haven of Jersey on the of 18th July for a day – it cost us £60,000 which we paid to Jersey!   The current SE Asia visit will cost on a par with the last Canadian tour which cost the Canadians alone nearly $2m in security.

  • Why do we let them get away with it?
  • What use are they?
  • Where is our privacy?
  • Where is our return on investment?  I see none.

Reverting to Type?

I’ve just been to a “do” at the Lily Langtry in Bournemouth.  This is the former house, bought by Edward VII as Prince of Wales for his actress mistress , Lily Langtry, the first face of Pears Soap..

And here’s where more hypocrisy creeps in as those reversions to type are conveniently forgotten.

As we all know, Charles, William’s dad, was knocking off Camilla his mistress both before and during his marriage to Diana, Wills’ mother.  Much like Edward VII & Langtry.  All of the UK knows this.  Now Camilla is supposed to be “accepted”, according to our fawning press.  A few grannies during the jubilee said she looked nice….well that’s it then!

Yet in France, for years the hobbled press kept secret the facts of former President Mitterrand’s mistress and his second family….a bit like secret polygamy, but in a Catholic country….?   Yet millions get their kit off in summer all over France?

Ye-es, as Paxman would say….

The French press hid also the fact that 200 Algerians were slaughtered and chucked in the Seine in 1961 by the police.  Now that’s privacy!   Obviously, this is sarcasm, but the royals are using this weird French cultural mish-mash  and press/law combo for their own advantage……. They think!  They should hope!

Clearly, French privacy is wholly different to the British version.  I can get done for undressing while forgetting to shut the curtains, but in France my privacy to do this is upheld?

Ye-es I hear Paxman saying again.


Media Guff and Fawn

So how can we accept protestations about “rightness” from these people when nothing is said about actions and happenings either then or now which go clearly against their public statements and media view of their lifestyle?

If the next likely Prince of Wales, Wills, turns out like other former Princes of Wales’, do we wash it away but say that sensationalistic reporting of public/private sunbathing “hotties” is wrong?

Because a “hottie” is what Kate is – she’s smart, apparently intelligent, elegant and (most importantly for the press), hot in a swimsuit  – as earlier photos revealed. (Remember the debate in all the papers about who was hotter, Kate or Pippa?  Of course you do, but you’d forgotten, hadn’t you?).

The success of the Daily Mail website hangs on her and other sensationalist voyeuristic shots of hundreds of “hotties” – here’s today’s Kate article; note the HUGE list down the right for articles, near half of which are for scantily clad women.    n.b. Checking the Mail On-line now shows a huge dearth of the usual skin revealing links.

The comments at the bottom, like I said, for the most part, go totally against the fawning theme of the piece.  One repeats the mile and a half lie so that mud has stuck again.

Indeed, for those with long memories, the video at the bottom harps on about Berlesconi’s ownership of the magazines and his publication of Diana’s car photos  “minutes after the accident”.

Now, maybe you remember that  following Diana’s crash, The Daily Mail solemnly pledged never to use paparazzi photos again?

Yet virtually all the links down the right of any Mail page are paparazzi pictures!  They have to be – they’ve sacked nearly everyone and the paper would fold without them.

Porn Baron Protests and Threatens to Close Magazine!

Yes.  It’s true.  Here’s the chronology.

  1. French magazine publishes photos taken during the summer. – 14 Sep – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19595221
  2. Irish paper does the same on Saturday. – 15 Sep – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19611407
  3. Italian magazine follows suit. – 17 Sep (today) – http://www.metro.co.uk/news/912183-topless-photos-of-duchess-published-in-italian-magazine-chi

It’s the Irish one that’s interesting!  It’s co-owned by Richard (Dirty) Desmond, who besides running UK TV’s Channel 5 and  publishing the Daily Express and tit paper The Daily Star, also runs porn channels Red Hot TV and Television X.  This growth was part financed by selling off his earlier publishing business which included such salubrious titles as Asian Babes and Readers Wives.  Notably, his celebrity magazines of OK! and New! are full of paparazzi photos…….  like, dah?

Now, to top it all, Desmond has said he wants the Irish paper closed….. – 17 Sep – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19621188     He must be after a knighthood or something because his history shows that prurient disapproval is not one of his strong-points.  It’s laughable.

The lady (and Desmond) doth protest too much, methinks. – Hamlet

Mass Media Princely Support, Public Split

Checking the comments following news reporting, I note a two-thirds majority telling Kate to keep her kit on if she doesn’t want to be rumbled.  This is despite the media claiming “over-whelming condemnation” or whatever.

It’s just simply not there.  Most of the public aren’t swallowing it.

Sooner or later there will be a backlash against the Royals if they keep this up.  Let well alone, it’d have blown over, much like Harry’s knob-tastic exposures.  But keeping it going, on and on, using their inherited and publicly provided wealth to pursue legal redress shows them seriously out of touch with the common mood, no matter how much the mass media are beefing them up.

The recent Hilsborough revelations show that media collusion is not a new thing.


Tits and Bums

A lot of people are behaving like bums or making a tit of themselves.

Those in “the establishment” are doing what those in the establishment normally do, which is to fawn and whine, pontificate and lie, all to keep ranks under the firm expectation of a gong at some point.

Then there are the “granny types” who all think she’s lovely and that the queen does a marvellous job.

There’s a few who see it as an attack on women, part of the objectification of women that’s happened for millenia and has now gone past saucy postcards, through Page 3 and porn mags (like Dirty Desmond’s) to full on ubiquitous internet porn and the gyrating phone girls on Freeview.  (All very valid, but not my gist)

Then there’s everyone else!

These are in two camps, I think;

  • those that don’t care either way but think the royals should think themselves lucky to get free holidays and trips and well looked after for the whole of their lives
  • those that just want to see the tits

Well, thanks to Kate & Wills’ explosive reaction, Kate’s bits are everywhere now.

For instance, here’s an enterprising guy (Oliver James) in Bath, UK, who’s got a domain up and running in record time!  See http://www.katemiddletontopless.co.uk/ for all the shots you’ll need.  A WHOIS puts the owner, Bee Digital Media Ltd,  in California.  But a company search places it here in the UK!  (better watch out Oliver…..perhaps….?)

Apart from that, there are loads of others.  One that caught my eye was a website called Divided States, a US political site.  They had a web-page here, http://www.dividedstates.com/kate-middleton-topless-photos-prince-william-and-kate-suing-publication/ which they’ve now pulled.  How coy.

Fortunately, the Google Cache shows us this – the full copy of their original posting – click here or the screenshot for the cache. (full image available on request)

  • So am I a tit or a bum?
  • Is Oliver above?
  • Is Berlesconi?  Berlesconi certainly has gripes with the UK following his latin faux-pas with the queen and others….?  Maybe he’s publishing just for revenge?

Conclusion

Wills, with his experience, has behaved like a knob.  He should have known better.  He slipped up, which is a possible explanation for the rapid response unit being thrown into action.  It was notably absent following the Harry incident.

But really, what everyone has totally forgotten, is the old adage:

Don’t throw stones when you live in a greenhouse.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks. – Hamlet

Thus are Jack Lemmon’s words (as the Prince) as he bids goodbye to Tony Curtis (as the Great Leslie) in the film “The Great Race”

Today, it’s been announced thatTony Curtis has died.  I never knew that he was Hungarian…..

See Film star Tony Curtis dies at 85

The quote is from the last 15 seconds of this clip from the film…

Easter Island not a Treasure Chest

Tests raise life extension hopes – see news here

Possibly, this stuff, rapamycin, could be the next big internet scam.  Acai berries are nearly done, same as Green Tea and Wheat Grass.

Rapamycin

It’s an anti-biotic, found in 1970 on the bleak Pacific island called Easter Island.  I’ve mentioned this place previously as a comparative parable of our times here:

http://strangelyperfect.tv/346/easter-island-modern-history-in-miniature/

Global Survival of the Human Race

Earthrise

Earthrise

And in a miraculous co-incidence, we are currently in conference to mitigate Climate Change(see here).  A noted bunch of academics are saying that Kyoto was a waste of time (history proves this as emissions reductions and postitive action, not words, has been minimal), see here.  Prince Charles in last night’s Dimbleby Lecture stressed the importance of living within our energy means.

So it’s all there, the willpower and the knowledge within our world leaders.

Now what we need is for the leaders to lead by example!

It’s simply not good enough to flit around in massive cars, telling everyone to button down their consumption.

To demonstrably lead, you must do as you expect others to do.  Or nothing will change.

Easter Island

Easter Island

Easter Island

Easter Island is a wonderful example, in miniture, of the Earth.  It had it’s leaders and it’s religions.  It had literature and art.  It had it’s conflict over limited resources.

It’s almost barren and windswept, lost in an ocean, a shadow of it’s former self.  Trees weren’t growing as there were no seeds.  Everything was chopped down and burnt in a last desparate struggle to survive by it’s inhabitants.

Easter Island Moai

Easter Island Moai

The few survivors, when found, were reduced to a bestial existence, incapable of even contemplating the construction of any more statues, for which the Island is now famous.

This will be us in our world, lost in the empty blackness of space, if we don’t do something now.

For our continued existence, it’s not rapamycin that we need to extend our lives.  What we need is to realise that we live on a round world with limited resources.  That’s all.

Checking my Duck Island

Yup!  Still not got one.

MP of Duck Island

MP of Duck Island

Sir Peter Viggers, MP for Duck Island, has announced that he’s retiring because of his enormously embarrassing expense claim for the town of Gosport, Hampshire.

Gosport is worth 4 hides, a pig and a duck, complete with a pond.  There was some mention of manure.

Duck Island currently costs £2585 (inc VAT)  which is a bargain if you ask me.

Prince Charles is the current Lord of the Isles and should be told, as it looks like he might have lost one.

Gary Glitter, the New Akhenaten?

The Glitter Band

Gary Glitter, former prince of glam-rock; Paul Gadd, convicted paedophile.  They’re one and the same.

Now wait, recent events around Gadd-Glitter remind me of happenings a long time ago in Ancient Egypt….

King TutMost folk have heard of King Tutankhamun, the boy-king with the gold death mask.

AkhenatenNefertitiNot so many know that his (probable) dad was called Akhenaten whose wife was the famous Nefertiti.  Before his reign, Egypt had a religion with many gods to worship;  most people know the types: sun, moon, cats, hawks – you name it.

During his reign, Akhenaten decided that there should be one god (like, but very much pre-dating the later Jews, Christians and Muslims).  But by an amazing trickery of words, (sorry, a fine act of political skill ), he decided that this one god was embodied on Earth – by – yes, you’ve guessed it – himself!  This left loads of priests jobless and altered the whole power structure of the civilisation.

When he died, his successor, Tutankhamen didn’t last long – in fact he was probably bumped off.  You only have to look at all the unemployed and de-statused priests to look for clues….

Wall of FameMy point is that after his death, all traces of Akhenaten and his “religion” were deliberately erased from history!  His statues were smashed, his city in the desert destroyed, all mention of his name on temples, carvings, bas-reliefs and papyri was chiselled or hammered off!

And a similar thing is now happening to Mr Gadd.

There may be more – I couldn’t be bothered to hunt any more down.  But what it means is this:

  • The owner of the Cavern Club, Bill Heckle, picks and chooses which laws of the land are acceptable or not.  He’s now scribbled Glitter’s name off his wall of fame following a “media campaign”.
    • So both he and the “media” condone reckless drug taking in which many of the stars on the wall partake, (McCartney, say).
    • They imply that drugs are an excusable offence (check the law, they’re not).
    • Not only that, the celeb culture of drugs has led to a wholly un-natural demand that has ruined millions of lives and brought social deprivation to peoples across the globe.  (But amazingly, this isn’t as bad as one paedo who’s served his time….der!)  (added 28/11/2008: This page says that the brick is staying, although I think it’s outnumbered.  Also, Cavern Club website seems dead. SP)
  • The music of Glitter was once considered de-rigeur for parties, football grounds, boxing tournaments and even GCSE materiel.
    • Now it’s been scrubbed.
    • The government now decides study material based on an arbitrary value judgement of someone’s character, not their work.
    • They now decide what music is “worthy”.
      • Bizarrely, and hypocritically, the kids can study Hitler, Eichmann, William I, Henry VIII, Edward III, Gengis Khan, Stalin and loads of other odious mass-murdering real characters.
      • They can study the works and lives of Newton, Pascal, Bohr, Heisenberg and other nutters with severe personality disorders (the whole Manhattan Project was a kook’s paradise ).
      • The drug-fuelled ramblings of Victorian poets are required reading in English (the Ancient Mariner was written just up the road from me in an opium haze that lasted two years!).
  • But now, UK dot Gov has banned Glitter music study because of Gadd’s bad actions.
    • Remember, the music doesn’t promote deviant acts by word or metaphore.
    • It’s just a string of (generally uplifting) notes with a few camp words chucked on top of a beat.
    • They sold millions.
    • That is, millions thought Gadd was alright at the time.

Watch out for the thought police.

They’ll be round your house to smash your old K-Tel Records before you know it.

As an aside, but in a similar vein, “Rumble” by Link Wray, was banned over much of America because it “Glorified Juvenile Delinquency”……….And another der!….It’s got NO words.  It’s an instrumental.  Nuff said!
