Going Back for More

Why is it that in spite of widely and graphically reported kidnappings in Iraq and its surrounds of Western civilians , there are still people out there prepared to take the risk? If the images of Ken Bigley last year weren’t sobering enough to those moonbats out there who still believe we can negotiate with Islamic mentalists then im beginning to think we are all doomed in the West. Nothing would inspire me to visit an unstable part of the world where the worlds most forthright representatives of Islam dress up Initifada stylee and hover over hostages with RPGs on a pretty frequent basis. As noble as it might be for some to be on humanitarian missions it shows a degree of utter unconsciousness to have failed to recognise the threats – less noble more suicidal. And we now have to endure days of front page torment to accompany their hideous position. The fact that this particular Briton (and German) were a professor and archaeologist respectively is further confirmation to me that in those who reach lofty heights in academia land are too far removed from reality to know what is good for them. Hence they end up commenting on the philosophicalness of life. Professor Kember felt that demonstrating about peace didn’t go far enough and that he had to reach out to the people to share their experiences. Im no professor but I figure im smart enough to have figured out that those who want peace are blogging about their experiences on Iraq and sharing their delight about being rid of a tyrant. You can access their experiences daily without taking any risks. Those that aren’t are running around the country blowing up children, voters and troops and chopping off westerners heads. There IS no dialogue with people like this so why would you want to reach out to them?

Get over it

Sky are trying to report on yet more Marine ‘misdemeanors’ in today’s on line ‘news’. In this latest ‘incident’ they have had to concede that the troops were simply larking around after returning from Iraq and that no bullying actually has been reported. So unable to splash these lurid headlines all over our TV sets and front pages as a true ‘scandal’ they resort instead to what amounts to media giggling and finger pointing “Troops caught with their trousers down”. There seems to be an anglosphere obsession developing as far as our troops are concerned. Not content with making scapegoats out of senior officers who tackle head on any sign of alleged wrong doing out in Iraq and not content with reporting absolute scandalous rubbish as ‘torture’, the MSM are now doing their best to maximise ‘scoops’ on perceived nasty bullying. The initial revelations came on the weekend when what looks like a bunch of hard core nutters in the Marines took it upon themselves to get drunk, naked and dirty in a full on fist fight. It strikes me as rather odd that the MSM or anyone else for that matter would expect these guys to be reasonably behaved individuals with good natured sweetness oozing from every pore. These are guys who get to deal full on with the kind of war horrors that we wince at when watching it in surreal format eg Saving Private Ryan or Black Hawk Down (if inclined!). Blokes are inclined to beat each other into unconsciousness just for spilling a pint down the local boozer so why should we be *shocked* that individuals who sign up to take on the toughest assignments in the world are doing the same strikes me as rather typical of today’s high moralising and hot air over nothing. This is nothing more than spurious media ‘concern’.

OK I know its Friday but...

Only one thing wrong with this picture and thats on the left (hardly!)

  • And what about justice for the victims of Ulster?
  • A Tangled Web
  • Im repeating in full the text of Andrews post ABOVE over at A Tangled Web.

    Also above is the link he included to the Telegraph on the same subject.

    Its very moving. I havent been reminded of how bitterly i felt about the IRA for a long time so much are we absorbed by current threats. It just seems that this has being neatly brushed under the carpet. We are constantly reminded about JUSTICE and upholding RIGHTS and our esteemed VALUES. We get our faces well and truly rubbed in it all the time by the likes of Galloway and his De Menezes campaign. Rights groups like Shami's Liberty practically swing from the rafters to protect the rights of little ASBO shits and full on terrorists. Conservatives SCREAM opportunistic blue murder when we DARE to suggest sacrificing our values over 90 days detention proposals. What are they talking about?! We ARE sacrificing them ALREADY. Where is the sense of indignation at this?! The bill was PASSED by a MAJORITY in the Commons yesterday and will SAIL through the Lords. God this has been pissing me off.

    Frances Blackbourne whose teenage son was murdered by IRA members apparently 'wearing butchers aprons' (as one commenter not sure of this is true) spoke to Tony Blair the other day with the usual quiet dignity but felt that she was too late and that minds were already made up. Of course: Without legions of moonbats surrounding her why would anyone want to pay attention to Frances Blackbourne??

    Here's his post:-


    Labour Spits on the Innocent

    "I worked a full day on Thursday, hence my lack of blogging. During the day I heard Willie McCrea's plea to the Secretary of State, choking back tears as he recalled attempting to identify his two cousins blown to pieces by the IRA. It was extremely moving and the only time I have ever know a Member to break down in the Commons.

    The debate taking place was the amnesty legislation, permitting scumbags like Owen Carron, Rita O'Hare and Pat (your neighbourhood friendly solicitor) Finucane's younger brother, Dermot, to return to Northern Ireland without so much as a hair on their heads being disturbed by the due processes of justice and retribution. Was Hain genuinely moved by the protests of brave people like Aileen Quinton? No way, Jose!! This is a man whose love for the politics of Irish republican Marxism and its alleged panaceas for all the ills of Ulster far outweighs any sense of innate decency he might have over the killings of totally innocent people.

    Of course, bleeding-heart Shinners will talk of the loss of their 'loved ones' also. Nobody, outside the sclerotic confines of their own support really equates the sort of human filth who made up the vast majority of their lost 'loved ones' to people who were killed by them. As far as I, and millions of others are concerned, republican 'loved ones' were the dregs of humanity, whose slaying was a great service to the rest of the British public, and without which the world is an infinitely better place.

    Unprecedented in British legal history, New Labour has effectively waived the need for those who commit murder to serve any sort of penance for their actions. If the law doesn't serve the needs of the innocent and the law-abiding, what is the point of it? Will Hain and his cronies ensure that any surviving relative, who decides to despatch Rita, Dermot and Owen to the bowels of Beelzebub courtesy of the same methods these criminals used against their victims, be treated with exactly the same leniency as these animals have been?

    'At the going down of the sun,And in the morning, Labour has forgotten them."


    Its Friday

    This was sent to me today by email under the subject "Why the Dog Left". I dunno who she is or what she's been feeding it but bloody hell, its arms are bigger than hers! Since so many moonbats have such an issue with anyone in a war using actual weapons i wondered if perhaps we should send this thing to Iraq to hunt out insurgents. Ive a feeling it could do a pretty good job! What say you?

    Get voting.

  • Vote for the Greatest Briton
  • "As with last year, we (the Telegraph) have been inviting public nominations for those who have achieved such success in a particularly "British" way during the past year.

    Nominations can be made across seven categories: Arts, Business, Campaigning, Creative Industries, Public Life (formerly Public Service), Science and Innovation and Sport.
    Expert judges will draw up shortlists in the categories relating to their particular fields in November. The final judging panel will then decide category winners and announce them at the awards dinner on Jan 26, 2006 at the Guildhall in London.

    The Morgan Stanley Great Briton of 2005 will be put to a public vote on that night.

    Last year, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the World Wide Web, was named Great Briton of 2004."

    "Drink up ..time gentleman please"

    The Mayflower Pub East London

    There's a clue in the name and location here…for, in 1620, a certain ship carrying certain Pilgrim Fathers left the wharf outside this pub bound for America. Yes, that's right - the Mayflower set sail from right here, a journey that was to result in the good ol' US of A.

    Nice that we finally see our licencing laws updated on Thanksgiving , cheers!

    Im completely in favour of the new laws. The argument against ignores and restricts people like myself from being able to go out and enjoy a drink with friends and family late if we choose to. As opposed to factoring in 11pm. As for all the media bleating on about binge drinking - we have way too much nanny state interference in our lives as it is, get lost! We are lucky in London to have had bars that cater for post 11pm drinking. But it will be nice to be able to go to a regular PUB. So finally... no more rushing to get to the pub before they call time. And when my sister arrives from LA and I finish work late and we fancy nipping out for a pint in a pub & have a catch up ...well, we bloody well can!

    Pub Philosopher has written a good piece on the new laws here:

  • At last a pint after 11pm
  • BTW Villandry in great Portland Street is celebrating Thanksgiving Southern style, while Christopher's is doing a more traditional East Coast Thanksgiving in Covent Garden and in their new restaurant in the City for any UK based US citizens.

    Dont say us Londoners dont treat you yanks well! God bless us!

    Weve a lot to be thankful for. I for one am very proud of being a Brit. And im grateful for it. In a very reserved English kind of way. (Except when there's sport on). Thing is if you forget who you are and why you should be proud & thankful then you've lost the argument with 'THEM' ...out there. The ones id happily see packed off on the suitably rickety ship 'Moonbat'.

    An Afghan Holiday

    I think the best way to really get an idea of the full story behind Jack Idema is to listen to the radio interview below which is about 15 minutes long. A NY station interviews Jack from his cell in Afghanistan.

    It covers 9/11 in a way ive probably never been exposed to or really understood fully and frankly is a pretty scary story. You cant really dismiss the story when you get to grips with where Jack is and why he is there. Quite simply.

    Then there is the fact that this guy is stuck in a part of the world the BBC tried hard this evening to publicise as the next big thing in tourism. 30 years ago im sure the odd hippy probably liked to follow some magic trail around the bleak landscape but right now it's a hole and this guys is stuck in it.

    To err is human...but its much much worse if youre a cop

    I walked past a police officer this morning. She was about 4 inches high and using her bullet proof vest to keep her hands warm. Her fellow police officer was a man and about 7 foot taller than her. Im accustomed to seeing female police officers and it got me thinking about how safe I would feel if I needed the female officer, now some way past me with her male colleague, to come to my assist. I expect she would be as fearless as the officer killed in Bradford. But basically peel away the uniform and without this conjuring up some nice little perverted image, what you are left with is a bird.

    I’m not sure I have heard many questions about whether or not TWO unarmed unvested female officers should have been responding to such a call in the first place. I don’t care what part of the world you are in I cannot see how a female police officer can be expected to deal with a bunch of criminals in the throws of a robbery – or as they turned out to be – vicious (probably illegal) Somali thugs ~ with firearms. Isn’t this a question we should be asking? There was after all a barrage of questions about whether or not trained armed police should have been called in to deal with the incident at Stockwell. Surely we should be asking if it was right to allow two female officers to attend to a potentially dangerous situation ~ rather than twist this to serve as a case in point about the blanket arming of police officers.

    Sharon Beshenivsky is the first to have been shot by a criminal, rather than in a terrorist attack," said Anthony Rae, chairman of the Natonal Police Memorial trust. "Generally criminals won't attack policewomen."

    Some might say that this serves as an example of political correctness in the force gone mad. Unquestionably. How my inch-high private eye cop, a second ago, could possibly be expected to deal as adequately as her male counterpart is beyond me. Maybe im the feminist’s anti Christ but I just don’t get it. I feel much the same way about female troops as it goes. The idea that criminals are less likely to attack female officers would suggest that we need an all women police force!

    It is unlikely that we will change minds on this issue and ultimately I doubt that a male officer would have faired much better in Bradford. But ill have to accept that in the event of a tricky situation a male officer will not only have to concern himself with protecting the likes of me, for example, but also protect his fellow female officer.

    I do NOT believe in a blanket arming of officers. That’s a daft idea. I don’t think a gun would have been much use to this officer and I don’t think this should be used as a case ‘for’. But if ever there was a case for trained ARUs to rock up when needed then this was it. The latter I do support. There is a need for armed officers. But you know what, I cant help but wonder had they shot the Somali, would we be out thanking our lucky stars? I doubt it. And after all, criminals, especially terrorists, have more rights than police officers and a police shooting is by its very nature always much much worse.

    To me , this incident, underlines the enormous bravery of individual officers, who continue to operate IN SPITE of all the political correctness gone mad, IN SPITE of strange structures at the top and odd decisions that are made, and IN SPITE of our MPs best efforts to render them useless as a way of chastising their seniors. Officers who put this all to one side and just get on with it. They operate and respond on a needs basis to situations that are often quite beyond their control. We expect them to handle unprecedented levels of danger. To respond to an armed robbery, a terror threat, or head on into a tunnel where a tube train has inexplicably exploded and deal with the aftermath. Anyone who saw the BBCs ‘The Day the Bombs Came’ could not have failed to have been impressed by the courage of the officers there ~ the reunion of officers and the injured was humbling.

    In the case of Pc Sharon Beshenivsky we have been SO quickly reminded of her ordinary human condition - associating her with her family much in the same way as we were told over and over again that Jean Charles was an innocent. Yet conversely we direct such bitter hostility at the police when things go wrong. We are right to be shocked and demand answers but we completely forget they are still human beings in the process. We dehumanise them as quickly as we can and parade them as cold blooded ’incompetent’ murderers - worse than criminals. We no longer question their tragic and incorrect actions in the context of the situation, as we are now doing with PC Beshenivsky, – we simply paint them as ‘evil’, ‘worse than terrorists’ as one banner in Brazil read after the fatal shooting in July. We judge our uniformed officers as though a uniform places them above the ability to make very human errors, even in spite of every training. We are always smugly capable of viewing their actions with the excellent self satisfying benefit of hindsight. Of course over the next few weeks we can expect much more of this as the De Menezes case reaches, what I really hope will be, its conclusion.

    So I hope we keep that same very human image of those officers in Stockwell in mind also.


    The use of ‘smart CCTV’ to track down the scum that murdered her was amazing. Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) - the same technology as Ken uses to make sure ive paid my C charge. (DNA testing was also pioneered by the British – back in 1985. Hurray for us! )

    I really do not have an issue with the fact that London and the UK has the most, and most advanced, mass surveillance systems in the world. The country has over 4 million CCTV cameras in operation some with facial recognition capability. The ANPR system was inaugurated in Bradford last year and clearly played the decisive role in catching the PCs killers.

    “At its launch in May, Ch Supt Geoff Dodd of West Yorkshire Police, said: "I believe that this is the best investigative tool we have had since the introduction of DNA analysis.

    "DNA broke new ground for the police service and this is another revolutionary tool in detecting crime.

    ""The importance of this system in the fight against crime cannot be underestimated”

    It was devised under the threat of Irish terrorism and instigated in 1997 in London. You can read about its launch in its present form in Bradford last year and smile at the huge amount of print space given over to the civil rights moonbats by the Guardian. After all, this same technology in this same area is now responsible for the super fast apprehension of the PCs killers. Much in the same way CCTV played its massive role in July:

    "...Three U.S. Special Services personnel are being held, illegally, in Afghanistan. They've been subjected to appalling tortures, and to eight (and counting) assassination attempts by members of al-Qaeda, eager to collect the $250,000 bounty placed on Idema's head by none other than Osama bin Laden..."

    Look Who's Talking

    Ive always written off Hollywood royalty as the moonbat elite, Michael Moore's 'NBFs'....but what struck me most in amongst all the good words here ( and i truly hope they are genuine and not only lipservice for his film and his image) the story behind the above picture. This should be across all the papers and emblazoned on our screens. The insurgents who's motives are so clearly to blow up children and poison the image of US soldiers, would then lose ~ goddamit!

  • Look Whos Talking

  • Bruce Willis: "Im baffled by what is not being repotred in the media...good things are happening in Iraq every day...."

    Michael Yon "I shot that photo on a day when a suicide or homicide car bomber ran into one of our Stryker vehicles, injured a couple of our soldiers, and, unfortunately, there were a lot of children who had crowded around to wave at our people. And the attackers had every opportunity to just wait a couple of blocks and attack our guys later, without the children being around, but instead chose to attack straight through the children. And Major Bieger, who is in the photo, found the little girl -- her name is Farah -- and decided he wanted to get her to the hospital as quickly as possible. And so he picked her up, wrapped her in a blanket, and loaded her into one of our vehicles and started to take her to the hospital as fast as possible. And unfortunately, little Farah died en route. We went back to that neighborhood the next day, and the people there actually welcomed us with open arms. They welcomed us into their homes"


    Was i the only one who thought that in the recent Bali bombings it was somewhat suspect that someone would be videoing a non descript bar, aiming the camera square on the back area, where the explosion erupted, just as the terrorists struck?? The media referred to it as 'amateur footage taken by a tourist'..."Things that make you go hmmmmm"

    Great Britons

    Pictures of the opening of the Battle of Britain monument unveiled at Victoria Embankment in London and next on my list of beautiful places to visit in my city. The monument is made up of two bronze friezes set in an 82ft-long granite structure, not all of it is shown here. Seventy surviving pilots and their families attended the ceremony alongside the Prince of Wales and his Duchess. Jack Toombs, 78, above, was a seventeen year old rear gunner during the battle. What a lovely photo of a wonderful Briton.

    One frieze depicts all the achievements of Fighter Command and the other focuses on the people of London, featuring St Paul's and an Anderson shelter. There is a plaque on the monument which lists the names of 2,936 servicemen and women from 14 countries who took part in the struggle against the Luftwaffe in 1940. 35 000 Londoners died during the Blitz.

    It is engraved with Sir Winston Churchill's famous phrase:

    "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few".

    As we all know the Battle of Britain was fought between July 10 and October 31 1940, when the RAF and the Germans fought for supremacy over Britain. Despite being outnumbered four to one, on September 15 1940, RAF Fighter Command claimed victory over the Luftwaffe after a day of bombing raids ended in heavy losses for Germany. And shortly after, Hitler postponed and then cancelled invasion plans, turning his attention to the defeat of Russia. If the RAF had not succeeded the Germans would have been able to invade the UK easily and the course of the war would have been somewhat different.

    Meanwhile a British army officer is facing a court martial today over the alleged death of an Iraqi in his custody. A charge he strongly denies, Colonel Mendonca of the Queen's Lancashire Regt went to incredible lengths to ensure people under his charge we treated fairly. He is cited in the Telegraph for acts of great bravery putting, always leading from the front and often putting himself in harms way. The citation added that his "personal contribution" to the fair treatment of Iraqis was pivotal in securing the region and "winning the hearts and minds" battle. A man awarded for bravery is now being lauded by the left as a 'war criminal', a scapegoat. His wife is reduced to begging for his future. ALL wars have great heroes. And on that note I also urge you to read the blog links on the right and at Rottweiler Puppy about US green beret Jack Idema....


  • pics c/o SOHO a project of international cooperation between ESA and NASA

  • What a beautiful shot.

    No Brainer

  • Liberal Peer Backs 90 days

  • A liberal peer back s the 90 days detention proposals. He is aware of 3 cases where it would have helped. So where are they now these 3 x how ever many potential terrorists that were arrested and released for insufficient evidence? So MUCH talk of how this legislation could be inappropriately used and the main thrust of my argument over on a Tangled Web is neatly spelled out by a liberal peer. I guess my revolution will have to go on hold after all. Least till i figure the Tories out...i blame Bush.

    (Both Rottweiler Puppy and House of Dumb have said all there is to say on this - click on links on blogroll)

    (ps Tories - my mum has decided she no longer voting Tory! You are stuffed! Waffling on about whether you prefer blondes or brunettes, pushing Cameron, voting against terror proposals...its Carry on Conservatives!)

    "Single to Tottenham Court Road and a bloody right wing revolution please"

    We all knew that the red Routemaster would make a small but welcome return to the capital. Its been common knowledge for some time that there were to be ‘Heritage routes’. (Brought in to ensure the famous and traditional London icons were not ruthlessly dismissed). Our glorious leader Ken had phased them out and updated them because "One Londoner in 10 can't physically get on a Routemaster and that's before you consider all the people struggling to get on with buggies”. Yet again minority rules. They were not updated with commuters in mind. Despised commuters play second fiddle to handicapped people and day time mums. Now of course Ken can say proudly “Ten out of ten Londoners can physically get on the bendy buses without paying a penny” and give himself a pat on the back. The buses payment system relying totally on trusting the passenger to swipe their card!

    The Routemaster cannot last forever. It is a testament to how well it was designed that it lasted so long. Of course London’s bus network needs updating. And the powers that be have certainly made an effort on this level. We now have several different species of red buses cruising the narrow streets of this great city. The much loved and uniform appearance of the Routemaster has been replaced with a mish mash of bus styles some ugly & painted red out of some miss-the-point duty, some long and bendy and some futuristic and devoid of air. And some are downright dangerous. The bendy bus for example can take huge volumes of people. They career around the roads driven by mentalists with seemingly no awareness of the fact that they have cut a road in half when they hunch up to stop at a junction ...and totally blind to the cyclist at the back. Not that I have much time for cyclists either but I wouldn’t wish them dead. The bendy bus’s ultimate moment was the other night when even a drink sodden tramp was shaken from his stupor to take huge umbridge at Ken’s baby. “Bloody hell!” he screamed and swayed in someone’s ear “Sorry I stepped on your foot..grrrrr...dont you look at me like that! I cant ‘elp it if this driver is insane and drives the thing like a tank! If you wanna blame anyone..blame Ken F**ckin’ Livingstone..” followed by drunken mumblings about the driver not knowing if a riot had broken out on the back end of the bus it was so effing long..& how could he tell who’d paid..& and a few more ranting choruses of “Don’t you make that face at me grrrrrr!”. Now, thanks to Ken and in the joy that is rush ‘hour’ commuters are treated to airless tube-like capacities and can sweat it out with fellow passengers on their way to work, i-podding out the thought of a terror attack as they go. And all because ‘the pink lady’ loves to champion welfare over air conditioning.

    The last time I jumped onto a Routemaster was an experience I will never forget. Sadly not for the memories of being able to swing onto and off the bus at my own ‘I can handle it thanks Ken im a grown up’ peril. This particular time I was sat on the long seats facing a bunch of suitably entranced commuters opposite. We had chugged along for about ten minutes when I became aware that the bus conductor, a young woman was staring hard at a passenger with a look which didn’t really tell me much. The bus not moving, however, did. The passenger was staring abjectly out of the window. “Fare please” she repeated. “Fare please ‘sir’”. He ignored her. A guy seated in front swung round “Come on mate. We all need to get to work”. “Fare please” she droned on, her face utterly devoid of expression. As was the non paying passenger’s. The latter was a burly black guy in his 50s. He didn’t appear insane. Or deaf. He eventually snarled “Im not paying” and stared out the window. She calmy explained that he would have to get off the bus. “Why should I” he replied and continued to look out of the window. “Force me” he droned on “I don’t have the money so Im not paying”. He then decided to clam up totally. He just stared out of the window as she asked over and over again. Of course I couldn’t sit there and say nothing so I said

    “Don’t make her job difficult please. Everyone else has paid and everyone else wants to get going” (politely). Shock. Gaaaaaasp.

    Apart from me, one guy and the conductor everyone else had started getting restless. There were tuts of disapproval that I initially presumed to be directed at the awkward sod sat opposite. This went on for some time with calls from the conductor who was quietly but firmly insisting on payment. Eventually someone shouted for the bus to get going, echoed by others. The conductor explained that she couldn’t because it was her job to collect fares and one passenger wouldn’t pay ..or alight. It all descended into chaos. Now, Ive stood in a supermarket queue in south London and watched a badly beaten young immigrant mother struggle to get the pennies to add up to the till total. She takes yoghurts she wanted to buy for her smiling baby off the belt and looked hopefully as the till was re rung. Whilst spot-the-liberal morons looked the other way. I ended up paying for some of her shopping. I imagined her husband to have drunk away the money in some eastern European drinking match. She was humbling. This guy was not. He was awkward, aggressive and rude. The world owed him a bus ride and everyone else was in agreement. Eventually one woman ran up and started screaming at me in broken English that I was ‘a bitch’. Over and over and over again. If Im a bitch for standing up to liberal lefty bullying tactics then bring it on. I calmly suggested she pay the passengers fare. “Yoooouuuuu pay eeeeet!!” she screamed back. Oh OF COURSE! She wants him to ride for free but catch is...someone ELSE has gotta foot the bill.

    Eventually of course the awkward passenger chose to wake up from his coma and make his way off the bus but not before he had spat in my face ( i swerved, he missed...rotten d**k head). Not the conductor's who had been far more insistent and ruder than me. Nope. Mine. Followed by several other passengers, stomping off the bus screaming at me in spanglish, calling me every name under the sun to my by now pissed off ‘yeah, whatever, bite me’ style retorts.

    At the end of the day is it really so important to stand up to this sort of shit in my city? Id argue it is. Because to them, our liberal chums and their carefully moulded electorate, there is such a thing as a permanent free ride.

    Bin Laden to move in next door to President Bush

    It appears unlikely that new Work and Pensions secretary John Hutton will be

    "keeping and eye on his (benefits) payments"

    as one source in the ES states in relation to the Secretary's new neighbour. Mr Hutton has bought a half a million pound property next door to hook handed Abu Hamza’s council house.

    If ever you want an indication of how well the state treats terrorists then this would be a more obvious example. Aside from ensuring their rights are protected to the maximum by both Labour and Conservative MPs yesterday, we also make sure they get the very best housing London has to offer. So charming are the properties that hapless Labour MPs are blissfully unaware that they are moving in next door to terrorist's pals in council accomodation.

    Can you imagine a US senator living next door to Mr Hamza in Washington? Or for that matter Sarko in Paris? His preferred course of action is to give trouble makers the finger and then boot them out the country immediately, green card or no.

    Meanwhile its all laughs and jokes over at the Huttons.

    "The morning greetings over the wall will be a bit special"
    another source says.

    Given that Mr Hamza is in prison to whom are they referring. Mrs Hamza?! I bet she's all warm fuzzy chats over cups of tea.

    I doubt that Mr Hutton was aware that he had moved in next door to a man both wanted in the US and currently in Belmarsh prison for inciting to murder non Muslims and stirring up racial hatred. Oh and with a £2000 computer in his cell…..(go figure!). But now that he is, I fully expect Mr Hutton to hand deliver the benefits cheques on his way back from work every evening in that thoughtful Nuu Labour manner.

    Hamza’s house was given a £25,000 refit including a new kitchen with splendid granite work surfaces, a new boiler, walls and floors tiled, new bathroom and a brand new gas cooker. His jobless wife claims £1000 a week in benefits for herself and her eight children which includes rent allowance £290 a week income support £80 child benefit and allowances for council tax.

    Presumably this classifies Hamza as a Key Terrorist. As opposed to a Key Worker.

    (But of course it would be wrong of me to expect any member of the conservative party to pipe up on this useful issue and worry about the injustice of it all wouldn’t it)

    Bush and 'his' WMD 'lies'

    Who said this?

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical- and biological-weapons stock, his missile-delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al-Qaeda members"

    Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking in October 2002

    (Little Green Footballs)

  • The whole lies sham

  • "...Among the many distortions, misrepresentations, and outright falsifications that have emerged from the debate over Iraq, one in particular stands out above all others. This is the charge that George W. Bush misled us into an immoral and/or unnecessary war in Iraq by telling a series of lies that have now been definitively exposed..."

    Well you know what Mr Howard? YOU are alienating ME

    Conservative leader Michael Howard warned that the detention plans could 'alienate ethnic minority communities' as they got behind a motion and defeated Mr Blair over the 90 day detention motion today.

    The whole office in which im sitting is talking about it. A bunch of people who couldnt care less about politics on a day to day basis cannot quite believe this. Why? Because it directly affects us. How out of touch do you have to be?

    Whatever the thoughts on other legislation being put forward on this SINGLE issue MPs have utterly failed in their first duty to you and me. 28 days simply isnt good enough.

    I do not CARE for all the glossing and preening in the leadership debate whilst i wait to hear some actual POLICIES.

    But this? You couldnt make it up. This is a party that i NEEDED to get its act together.

    You go after the muslim and 'minority' vote-at-your-peril, Mr Howard.

    On a Lighter Note

    Are You a Democrat, Republican or Southern Republican?

    Here is a little test that will help you decide:

    You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

    What do you do?

    Democrat's Answer: Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor? Or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.

    Republican's Answer: BANG!

    Southern Republican's Answer: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click.....(sounds of reloading). BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! clickDaughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Hollow Points?"

    Hat Tip

    Really F**king Stupid People

  • A Right Rant and a Half

  • This rant has it nailed. These kids are far too stupid to even know what their purpose is. When i watched on TF1 from inside the 'war zone' last week it had to be spoon fed to them by the media. The rioting interviewees were giggling and grinning from ear to ear at their sudden stardom. Basically le RFSP of Paris start kicking out with a bit of teenage lawlessness because 2 of their friends were stupid enough to hide in an electricty station and fry themselves, the RFS-MSM make them look hardcore which appeals to them on a Playstation meets Intifadacool level, the media then amplifies the hard done by sentiment giving them the motive and whips them up into a violent quelle surprise..before you know it they're all texting each other and placing bets on who will feature on the 10 o clock news (as reported on TF1 itself). Instead of seeing this the way Sarky sees it, the media here has to come out and serve up the 'white man not worthy' angle with a touch of anglo saxon irony - this is the French were talking about after all .

    You told us. But you didnt pursuade us Mr Blair.

    In recent days ive seen a bunch of frequently pathetic blogging about what Prince Charles did or didn’t say about Islam on his trip to the US with his middle aged bride. So some twee little journalists in New York are patting each other on the back comparing a 25 year old ….to a 50 year old (whilst no doubt waxing lyrical about the latest pink salt they are carrying around in snuff boxes to New York restaurants (trust me)). And we think the royals have strange habits.

    Frankly though, who cares?

    If you want to talk about a right royal fuck up, then look no further than our ELECTED government’s shenanigans over the last few days.

    BY the people OF the people FOR the people. Or rather… provided it suits the liberal agenda and/or the sudden need for the conservatives to find something A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G to oppose and/or doesn’t interfere with MPs little power games.

    Mrs Taylor whose daughter (not son as I wrote earlier) was murdered on July 7, has made it plainly clear to government today that anyone who seeks to undermine the proposed legislation risks losing her vote. And I would hazard a guess that this is directed at the Conservatives. The Conservatives meanwhile list all the times Blair voted against them on terror legislation - as if to make a point? Quite honestly I think Blackadder’s Percy and the Prince Regent could have collectively arrived at a smarter course of action.

    It’s obvious that the liberal judiciary whose main duty it is to scrutinise the executive would do precisely that, scrutinise the legislation (even if I detest their posturing and would, given half a chance, urge them to consider what is obviously at stake by making them take the tube with me to work every day). But I would have expected more from those people who act on my behalf.

    The first duty of any government is to protect its people. That protection being the physical protection of its people. Not the complexities of human rights. Im boring myself repeating what seems so obvious but clearly hasn’t made the slightest impact on our MPs. July 7 resulted in the deaths of British citizens and was a direct attack on home soil. How is it that MPs seem so perfectly capable of defending vermin. The bushy tailed and bushy bearded variety. What are we waiting for, gunpowder under the Houses of Parliament to give then a shunt in the right direction?

    The police did not request these powers which MPs seem to think they will wield over hundreds of people (rather than the likely handful of total mentalists likely to be a REAL and PRESENT DANGER). The police were asked after July 7 what more can be done to make their jobs easier in the PRESENT climate. They were directly asked what is involved in unravelling the web of planning that goes behind a muslim terror attack. You know…from recent experience, July 7 (just as a reminder Mr MP) and other attacks that have been recently foiled.

    It was based on these recommendations that the new legislation was put forward. If this rotten government had simply plucked the figures out of thin air then I might think it needed a bit more of a review.

    MPs are choosing to ignore these recommendations, in favour of standing alongside unelected unrepresentative civil liberties groups. These vile organisations sole purpose is to generate publicity for themselves in order to simply exist. It keeps Shami Shosha Wotsit in a job. Nothing more. Clearly demonstrated by the kind of spurious response of ‘Liberty’ vis a vis the ‘case’ against British soldiers - even when the case had been shown up for the utter utter joke that it was. I mean did this moonbat need to say anything at all?

  • Seven Paras and Jack Idema : Human Rights, Human Wrongs - RottweilerPuppy

  • But it seems she/they suit the agenda of conservatives and labour backbenchers with an axe to grind. All at our expense.

    So remind me why we have government again?

    Please make it brief Mr Taylor we’re almost out of time

    It was humbling and, frankly, weirdly refreshing to hear the opinions of Mr and Mrs Taylor on SKY today. Their son was murdered on July 7. In a quietly dignified manner they spoke to the interviewer about their grief and let the government and a variety of ‘rights’ groups know how badly they have been failed. “I am glad the bombers are dead” said Mrs Taylor. Her reason was simple even if it would have been jarring for our liberal friends out there. Knowing they are dead she summised, is knowing that justice is served. For her greatest worry would be that the terrorists had survived and that under the liberal left leaning system of justice in this country the terrorists would not have received an appropriate sentence & would have spent their days lounging in Britain’s hotel leisure park prisons. She went on to say that victims of crime are blatantly ignored as a result of political correctness. Mr Taylor added that ‘this government’ needs to wake up. The calm, gritty and grim determination of these parents to voice their opinion was immensely humbling. No amount of blogging our feelings would have come close to evoking the kind of stomach twisting disgust that they made plain today. There was a distinct lack of politically motivated hangers on nodding in the background. It was a break with tradition for our MSM who usually seek out the more camera worthy victims that get the PC hand wringing seal of approval. Even if the interviewer’s “please make it brief Mr Taylor we’re almost out of time” sounded incredibly insensitive and somewhat ironic. It kind of leans into the general train of thought here.

  • We are being so badly let down

  • (see Total Absence of Merit -DangerouslySubversivedad)

    The Tories seem such an uncertain bet, too caught up in themselves, too inadequate, too spineless..wooing the media.

    This isnt about them. It is about people like the Taylors.

    The French.. correction Nicolas Sarkovy is kicking butt when it comes to handling immigrant nonsense. I was amazed to watch on TF1 as ordinary people affected by the violence in the immigrant dominated suburbs of Paris were given a one on one audience with the President in waiting to discuss the violence. Not some community representatives or so called Association. But real people caught in the middle angry at seeing their property destroyed by morons. Furthermore he dismissed the allegations of insensitivity when it was claimed the CRS had fired into mosques claiming there was no proof! And he made very clear how he intended to handle this ongoing situation without a whinging journalist or rights group in sight.

    Its not all good news though . Have the MSM picked up on the story about French beef poisoning children in south west France? Frozen burgers from a major supermarket chain in south west France have been blamed for some kind of food contamination - but they are not too sure if it is the beef itself or the processing factory that is to blame. Nevertheless a number of children have been hospitalised and are very seriously ill. Some have even required blood transfusions. Time for a tasteless joke M Chirac?
