Stalybridge: Home of the last tripe shop in Greater Manchester

An interesting short film on the decline of tripe. I have never sampled it myself, but I do recall an elderly neighbour who used swear by it. It certainly did him no harm as he lived well into his eighties.


The Africanization of France said...

One in three newborns of non-European origin.

Geographically one finds France in Europe, but demographically the country is swiftly drifting towards Africa as recent data indicates. France, unlike America, does not hold censuses on ethnicity, but follows instead its ideal of the color-blind republic. This, obviously, does not change one bit the ethnic reality on the ground, but it certainly helps to keep its citizens in the dark about it. No official figures exist on the size of the immigrant population and the native French – until now. Pertinent material has come from quite an unexpected source, medicine, and it has all the hallmarks of allowing us for the first time an adequately precise and unbiased look into the strong growth of the non-White population in France.

Since 2000, the country has conducted a nationwide program of neonatal screening for sickle cell disease (SCD). SCD is a genetic disease by and large peculiar to non-European people. However, due to Third World immigration it has become the most common genetic disorder in today’s France. To provide early medical treatment for the illness, the French public health authorities have defined risk groups which are liable to screening. These comprise primarily people of African origin, from North and sub-Saharan Africa as well as ethnic Africans from the Americas. A second risk group consists of persons with a Near or Middle Eastern background (Turkey, the Arabian peninsula and the Arab lands in between) and from the Indian subcontinent.

What's wrong with Africanisation. Look at wonderful sub-saharan Africa, a bastion of savagery, corruption, barbarity, violence and retrogression. And as we know, nothing whatsoever to do with race. Anyone who disagrees is, by definition, an evil racist.
What will happen when Whites are ounumbered, hmmm now let me think. Is that the sound of machetes being sharpened?

I remember my gran eating this stuff, as well as cow heel and elder (cow's udder). I could never face that kind of stuff myself, except black pudding.

The guy's lament on the passing of tripe at the end was amusing. Fair enough in and of itself. But when the country as it has existed for 1000s of years won't survive beyond this century, it kind of pales into insignificance.

22nd century Britain will be probably be populated by a mulatto working class majority and a predominantly white middle class. The two groups may find co-existence increasingly difficult, and ever increasing numbers of the still-white middle class may have to resort to segregating measures (gated estates etc) or even flee the country. As Africa's population continues to grow with a never-ending overspill into Europe, the new mulatto masses of Britain will become increasingly darker and negroid.

Middle class whites seeking to leave will have fewer and fewer places left to go as all former white nations follow a similar course. The 22nd century is predicted by many to be the era of the yellow man when China / Japan are the undisputed super civilisations responsible for most of man's progress. In time they may represent the only haven from New Botswana. Of course, seeing Europe set an example may prompt those regions to adopt their own ethno-nationalist policies with tight immigration controls. We won't live to see it, but the 22nd century will be a very interesting place.

He was born in British controlled India, one of the most racist countries on earth.

I had a very interesting letter from Alan Kibble (new charter Tenancy Enforcer)
The letter dated the 9/8/12 states
"I have reiterated the law to your neighbours and they are fully aware, as I assume you are that no one should film beyond their property boundaries."
If that is the case, then why have we been subjected to being filmed for well over a year.
Our front garden, pathway, front door, even our conversations have been recorded by neighbours house CCTV. Family members, visitors, have all been filmed.
I've got evidence to show that we are being filmed by neighbours CCTV cameras.
It's not right Mr Kibble as you point out in your letter.
PS please give us a transfer.

Re the Africanisation of France, the last World Cup was a case in point, the Algerian team was more French.
The French team were a national disgrace with their bickering, disharmony off the pitch and laziness and apathy on it. A lot of them looked as if the blue shirt meant little or nothing.

This is why Stalybridge is on it's arse. With other town centres moving on into the 21st Century, Stalybridge and Tameside digs it's heels into the 60's and sells old crap. No wonder people with money don't bother going down visiting and spending their money.

The fact that it's the only tripe shop left could be used as a positive asset. Stalybridge's character, location and traditional appearance could also be utilised, it certainly has a great deal of potential.
Unfortunately a stagnant pond of ever present, old and jaded mental plankton called Labour run this borough, voted in by a similar pond of mental plankton. Imagination and intelligence, coupled with people with successful entrepreneurial and business experience and determination could see a revitalised stalybridge. But as we all know - Ashton is God as far as TMBC is concerned.
No doubt the wonderful Tram will do as much for Ashton (and the blighted Droylsden, which Tram riders will flock to pass through to get to the wonders of Ashton-Under-Lyne) as it has for Altrincham in the last 20 years, which at 30%, has the highest percentage of closed shops in the North West region.
A car friendly approach to Tameside's towns, as opposed to the current deliberately obstructional policies, would be a good start.
