” Pretenders ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, quite the month it’s been people ….

All kinds of industry awards for film and music, pretenders to thrones being disappointed, whilst other pretenders to thrones, getting their props, from their peers.

In Hollywood, it’s such a farcically, perverted place, that it’s hard to truly believe that awards are given to individuals, solely based upon the quality of their, respective works, or merely because they sucked the right persons whatever, these days … !!!!!

Politically, well it seems that the Brits’ have got their noses out of joint over, alleged, covert, Russian Misbehaviour, on British Soil … ???

Now, this in turn, has garnered support from a lot of nations apparently … ???

…. and of course, the US, via it’s President, has let Vladimir, and his foreign diplomats know, that they apparently are no longer welcome, where they once were.

Also, the North Korea situation has been hitting headlines, as it appears that recent exchanges between America and North Korea, that were quite tempestuous, were no more than a lot of hot air, as, not only has Kim Jong Un, met with the Chinese Premier, President Xi Jinping, but apparently, he’s now cool with The Trumpster’, and other leaders, who seem to rather quickly be joining the queue to talk with a man who, barely months ago, was being labelled as a dangerous, out of control, tyrannical leader ….. ???

Something isn’t quite adding up people ….. ???

As comedian, George Carlin would i’m sure of suggested, the viagra seems to have worn off, and dick swinging has stopped for a while at least, so that the limp dick leaders of this world, can prove that, ” Pretense “, is indeed, along with those little pills, their greatest ally.

Also, the word is that, Donald will never get to build his wall, to keep the Mexicans out, as he so vehemently claimed he would do, on his way to the Whitehouse !

(which, as a sidetone, quickly reminds me, is Guantanamo still open ???)

Okay back to Americas’ current big shot caller ….

It also seems that he won’t get to bed, a certain, Stormy Daniels, ever again, as their relations have become somewhat strained now !

LMFAOL ….. !!!!!!

…. and of course, there’s been the customary firing of members of Donalds’, US Administration, continues to baffle and bemuse the people who keep believing that these people, that he chooses, are actually supportive of the somewhat beleaguered President.

Seems like a great many PRETENDERS, are out there, which finally leads me to the admission by David Warner, Cameron Bancroft & The Australian Cricket Captain NO LESS, Steve Smith, that the pretence of them being decent, honest, fair cricketers, has been nothing more than a rather LARGE VENEER, that also has led to their, poor old coach, Darren Lehmans’ sudden resignation, after apparently being backed by the Australian Cricket Board …… just days before ….. ???

The same Darren Lehmann who had to apologise for using racist language with regard to Sri Lankan opposition, not so many years ago, who was also quick to join Yorkshire, a county who were seemingly pressured into reversing their policy of basically, not having anybody from outside of Yorkshire, be part of their team, especially if they had a bit too much colour …. !!!!!

You had to be of Tendulkar, or Richie Richardson Levels, to have even have had a chance back in those days, let’s not forget !!!!!

Hmmmm, nice blokes these lot and it sounds like there are a great many pretenders in Australia, maybe not just confined to the upper echelons of Aussie Cricket !!!!!!

It’s so laughable that it’s seriousness may be being dismissed, as nothing more than a blot on the landscape of Australian Sportsmanship,

It’s only Ball Tampering after all, so what, they just got caught for a change … !!!!!

However, one should not dismiss the level of vitriol aimed at anyone who wasn’t whiter than the whitest cricket ball, if they were accused of cheating, without any admission of guilt, previously.

The South Africans can hardly get too upset, as Hansie Cronjes name, has to be quickly brought up, when it comes to deceitful actions surrounding cricket, in the past.

In a world seemingly filled with so many liars, cheats and thieves, this month’s piece reflects on this pastime that seems to be so popular amongst so many bods’ on this planet of ours, including just one name i’ll mention from the poem, a certain Ryan Lochte, whose behaviour in Brazil not so long ago, with other US Olympic swimmers, should serve as a very important reminder of how white pretenders get treated in comparison to us darker folks, when we are foolish enough to get caught doing things that we perhaps, shouldn’t ……

So, as much a warning as an assessment of the Pretenders we all have to face at various point in our lives ….

Check it out ……..

and remember folks, HONESTY, is the best policy, however,

ONLY BEFORE, you decide not to be !!!!!

NOT ….. The other way round !!!!!

Quite … The Trip … written by Big Virge 2/6/2014

Yes Yes peeps and creeps … !!!!!

What tha’ fook’s been going on ???

Well, firstly let me say, having spent the last 4 weeks in London, let me first Thank Mr. B, for sorting me out with a bed, and roof, to cool out at, and for all my peoples’, who saw me and managed to spend some time with me, it was GREAT to see you all, and I really mean that !!!!!

For those reading this, who are like, “Well, he didn’t see me !!!”

Get it CLEAR, either I’m not, or you are not …. a high enough priority in each of our respective lives, for us to have made time for each other, to catch up !!!

Yeah that’s right, your on the … ” Acquaintances list “, NOT, my friend list, take note & RECOGNISE, alright.

Okay, enough of that, what has changed in 15 or so months in England, well, the rise of not only, immigrant numbers in London, fa’ sure, but, more importantly, The Mighty, UKIP Party, presumably ready, to make Britain … GREAT … Again …

Errr, yeah alright … !!!!

I actually find Nigel Farage to be refreshing, in the fact that he chats his rubbish, openly !!!

Unlike say, Cameron or Clegg, or more importantly, those who’ve, all of a sudden, found their voting shoes, walk them to voting for what is essentially, a … ” NATIONALIST ” … party

” Nationalist ” … ???

I hear folks saying, well, yup, by this I mean … Ignant ass racists, filled with prejudice and a wish to re-ignite, the xenophobic nature of English folk, which has been, simmering, on the down low, for what … ???

30 years, give or take, as one news story claimed, while I was in London…..

Yeah OKAY, and the rest …… !!!!!!

The subject of … “YAWN YAWN” … Immigrants, and the influx of so many europeans….

Let me re-iterate … EUROPEANS … like say, oh, Nigel Farages’ apparently, German wife !?!

Oh, so he don’t mind going up in some parts of Europe, but, England as a whole should abstain, and, not only stay away from the idea of the European Union, but should keep them, as in migrants, out of England.

Sounds pretty much like BNP & EDL, rhetoric to me, for those who don’t know, the English have had, and continue to have their versions of the KKK ….

Groups like Combat18, The British National Party (BNP) and EDL – English Defence League, but of course, due to the level of Politically Correct, bullchit’, that much of English Society, now stands by, they are given a platform, but, only for the apparently, more liberal and ” Tolerant Groups “, from political parties, to, the Average Joe’s of society, who feel that they are above such ignorance ……

…. to attack UKIP & Farage, at the slightest slip of the tongue, that, THEY are EXTREMELY CAREFUL, not to make …

Hmmmm, talking of which, this brings me to Barbados’ friend, Jeremy ” Nigger ” Clarkson, who has been accused of using the word in some recording for Top Gear, which seemingly, was not to be heard, but somehow did, much like poor old Donald Sterling’s comments, somehow make it into the public domain ???

Well, Clarkson is renowned for running his chops in what could be construed as, racist dialogue, amongst other things, so, no surprises there, however, the fact that, pretty much immediately after this allegation of using the … N Word … he flies into Bim’, with his pals, and oh, conveniently, Lewis Hamilton, to enforce what … His love for … ” Niggers ” … is a little disturbing, to say the least !!!!!

Barbados obviously has no problem with white guys running that kind of talk, well, that fits in with the statement a Bajan made to me just before leaving, about the fact that,

“Apartheid may have stopped in South Africa, but, NOT … in Barbados !!!!!”

Apparently one of my, British High Commission, neighbours, was in the papers here, having been at the Top Gear event, yeah, my neighbour, whose lived next to me for quite a few months now, but, whose name i’ve yet to find out, as we’ve not spoken AT ALL, his New Zealand wife, on the other hand, I have had the pleasure of at least, a passing greeting from …..

Hmmmm …. anything adding up here people … ?!?

Anyways, back to England, twas’ great to get some performances in, and, suitably on topic, my smile poem, which I recently recorded, went down well in hackney, or at least, on the surface, at Spoken Word London, and as a result, I met a young lady called Hannah, who invited me to get over to an event she was starting, at the BAR Gallery in Willesden.

Small, intimate venues and audiences, were at each, and, thanks to Hannah and Pat I think, at S.W.L., for having me bless their audiences with some Big Virge verse !!!!!

Beyond those things, well, all I can say is, 1700 miles of driving later, I was shattered, but also, amazed at the changes in London, within just 15 months !!!

YUP … Immigration does seem to be … OUT OF CONTROL, even as the son of an immigrant, it is frightening to see the level of the Non-English, European presence I felt in London, Lithuanians, Bulgarians, Russians, Polish, Romanians etc, etceteras, and that’s before you see the Islamic, and, Black immigrants who have been in England for many years now !!!!!

Enoch Powell said, many years ago, if immigration wasn’t controlled, it would implode and leave, ” Rivers of Blood in England “, well, maybe, not that just yet, but, something has to give ….

Hence, oh yes … !!!

UKIP and Nigel Farage, causing a lil’ more than consternation from the Conservatives, Liberals and Labour.

I caught an interview with Ex-Conservative MP & now, I believe, Lord Heseltine, who had no reservation in suggesting that UKIP has, racists within them, but that, David Cameron and the Tories, have no such problem, as they are clearly, not racist !!!!

That’s funny to me, because what I see is the bridge where racists who have felt themselves outnumbered, due to so much immigration movements, into England over the last 70 years or so, that, they have had to silence those feelings, that, they’ve always held dear to their hearts, even if, only in private, or in, ” Certain Company “.

The BNP was a lil’ ……. TOO FAR RIGHT, to be associated with, as are the EDL, but, with a leader who has such a great British/English name like … ” Farage ” … ?!!!?

UKIP votes, have shocked, not only the main parties, but, the political ring of Europe, who, coincidentally, have seen a rather strong growth in Far Right, extremist, dare I say, ” Terrorist Parties “, who are all about attacking immigrants across Europe.

Nothing that i’m surprised by, to be honest, but, the level of acceptance, from the black populous, and the children of many immigrants, does leave me a lil’ concerned, as they truly seem to believe that they have the same rights as their, Caucasian counterparts !!!!!

Well, I can only hope so for their sake, but, if the volumes of Eastern Europeans I saw and was served by, is anything to go by, they may not believe that, in years to come.

Like many before me, and, many now suggest, it may all amount to nothing, but, what if it does amount to something, what if more people are ready to sign up for UKIP, come the general election ???

I wonder which immigrants will be the first ones asked to leave England ….. ?!?!?

Well, having left England thankfully, for my adopted home, i’ll leave y’all to stew on that, whilst I take in the sunset over the beach that is at the bottom of my road ….

Great to be back in a zone where black folks roam, without talk of get back on ya boat, unless it’s to bring back some fresh fish, like rasshole !!!!!

One love y’all ….

and keep it … HUMAN …. !!!

as that’s the race we ALL, belong to ……

The Virge out of here !!!!!
