Do you know what residential amenity is going to become very chichi among the landed gentry? Moats. Camouflaged, ultra modern, retro, or hipster ironic, those able put buffers between themselves and the human imports they profess to adore are going to do so. Of course no one would be so gauche as to state the obvious. It will be quite like a neighborhood of staunchly anti-racist liberals, whose precious 1.3 children all just happened to land in one of those “good schools.” Almost serendipity really. And nothing to discuss in polite company.
So it is with the recently convened NATO summit in Wales. Because worrying about your family’s safety is something for haters and bigots. The tolerant dig moats. And when is money for a moat no object? When I’m spending yours. And no tab has ever fallen lighter on the checkbook than when you’re the one paying for my folly. Succulent.
So western leaders, who have imported a quite active little coterie of jihadis into Britain, found the resulting terror threat a bit too uncouth for their refined sensibilities. Being raped and stabbed is for the hoi polloi. These are important people for God’s sake. Their safety matters. Do we expect the architects to just suffer the environment of their creation like a common prole? Get real.
So we dig moats. $80 million for a “Ring of Steel.”
The taste of rule is sweet,
To sneer down at the street.
My beliefs are like a child,
Oh, but the muzzies went wild.
It makes you wonder if the the change in threat level is being used in part to justify the extraordinary $80 million sum spent on building a fortress around the Newport and Cardiff city centers in Wales, which many are describing as “similar to the Berlin Wall,” or a “zoo,” in an unprecedented display of protection for many of the world’s most corrupt politicians.
So how secure will this primate exhibit be? 9,500 police and twelve miles of nine foot tall steel fencing. You common British yobs, on the other hand, can just get used to halal cuisine, grooming rings, subway bombings, and racism prosecutions if you happen to complain. But let’s take a look at what goes into protecting important people from ummm…terrorism.
Well we seem to have gotten an extra one in there somehow. But the primary lesson is a heartening one. For it is gratifying to note how much fear and disdain our western leaders feel for the Frankenstein countries they are creating. As we all know, men lie with their tongues and speak the truth with their feet. And no feet speak more plainly than those of multiculturalists who so ostentatiously segregate themselves from the product of their designs. Cardiff just became one hell of a “good school.”
