Crazy? You Couldn’t Make It Up! Season 1 Episode 6

Idiots abound everywhere, and sometimes they get in the news. The last week or so has seen yet another crop of weird stories which highlight the silliness of people and institutions.

The British Government has taken one more step down the road to stupidity with the recent Equality Act. Harriet Harmon’s Bill now decrees that it is an offence to ‘imply that women are not as strong as men’. For this reason, gym instructors have been told that if they warn a woman not to lift weights too heavy for her they can be prosecuted under the equality law because it insinuates women are not as strong as men.

Most gym instructors will give advice to both men and women during activities like weight lifting, for the simple reason they wish to prevent their clients from ‘over-doing’ it and injuring themselves. So if this will be considered sexual discrimination in the future, I wonder what will happen when someone does hurt themselves? Could it mean the complainant sues Harriet Harmon or the gym? A tricky situation for which we will have to wait an answer!!!

As a policeman, especially in the traffic department, you see some strange happenings on the roads. Officers in Weymouth in Dorset England were amazed to see a car being driven through a busy town with the bonnet (hood) fully up blocking the windscreen. When they pulled over the vehicle they found a 53 year-old woman in the driver seat who said her bonnet was faulty and she was on the way to get it fixed.

She was somewhat indignant when the officer suggested she could not see the road and told him she had been looking through the slit between the raised bonnet and the bottom of the windscreen. What a shame she is too old for the Army, she would make a fine tank driver!!!

The same Force pulled over a man using his elbows to steer his car while he rolled a cigarette and read from a clipboard he had on the wheel, and also a woman with three children on the back seat without seat belts. When asked by the officers why she did not have the children wearing seat belts she replied they were ‘not her children’. I can’t quite make up my mind if that is extremely callous, or stupid. Probably both!!!

A company called Proactol Ltd is advertising for a professional ‘couch potato’ with a salary of £23,750 per annum! Really! The job entails sitting all day long eating junk food and watching TV and video’s. The successful applicant will be required to eat Indian ‘take-away’, Macdonalds meals, pizza, fish and chips and other fatty foods for the their period of employment, plus take the company’s product Proactol. You would essentially be a lab-rat for the scientists who are developing Proactol which they hope will absorb 30% of your daily fat intake. I can imagine the applicants will be lining up around the block, and the next one!!!!

Children are without doubt one of the best sources of amusement, and a short time ago they proved it yet again. One thousand children were polled to mark the start of the National Science and Engineering Week in the UK a couple of weeks ago and were asked questions like ‘Who invented the telephone’. Many thought the Queen invented the telephone, that Charles Darwin discovered fire and Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story) was the first man on the moon.

The minds of children are amazing and it makes me wonder who they think invented the aeroplane? Probably Richard Branson!!!

Political correctness is forever in the news these days, usually for something stupid. Like the man at Gatwick Airport who was asked to remove his T shirt by a security guard because the slogan on it may be considered threatening. A compromise was reached when the man turned it inside out. The words on his T shirt; ‘Freedom or die! So the next time you buy a T shirt, take into consideration the feelings of other air passengers and do not buy one that says; Boom!!!

A survey has been carried out among local councils that are gradually changing English street names to reflect current environmental concerns and ethnic diversity. Names like Acacia Street and making way for new names like Eco Avenue, Euro Close and Sustainability Avenue. Among the ethnic diversity names now in use are Masjid Lane (Muslim for mosque), Khadija Walk (prophet Mohammeds first wife). The list goes on and on. I suppose before long streets where the majority of dwellers are ethnic English will be called ‘Infidel’ Street!!!

Another ‘Health and Safety’ cock-up was unearthed by the media at Manor School in Melksham last week when a 5 year-old boy climbed a 20ft tree during the morning break but was left there by the school staff because they would be breaking H & S rules if they helped him down! In accordance with guidelines, they retired to the school building and ‘observed him from a distance in case they distracted him and caused him to fall’. The child was rescued some 45 mins later by a woman who happened to be passing the school and saw him up the tree. The amazing thing is, when she went into the school with the child, instead of thanking her for her assistance the headmaster called the police charging her with trespassing! It would appear we have now reached the situation where the patients run the mental asylum!!!

Until next time, and remember, there are still sane people in the world, they are just harder to find!

Death Penalty Outlawed – and Now Look At the Mess!

Killers Nightmare

As I read the comments of people writing about newspapers articles involving crime recently, it would seem there is an overwhelming desire among the general public to see hanging back in Britain. High profile crimes over the past decade or more, linked with the ever decreasing sentences, appear to have sparked the idea in people’s minds that the death sentence may be the only way to stop the spiralling serious crime rate.

Violent Crime

While 58 nations world-wide still have the death penalty, Britain abolished it in 1969, the last execution taking place in 1964. Human Rights activists labelled the death penalty as “cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment” while Amnesty International considers it to be “the ultimate denial of human rights”. To me, it seems these people do not have a thought in their collective heads for the victims of violent crime, and the savagery meted out by today’s young criminals. Maybe they consider the lives snuffed out by murder and torture to be insignificant. I doubt the relatives of the victims would agree.

There is little doubt in the opinion of many that although Labour has repeatedly promised to be “Tough on Crime” before every election, there has been nothing to show for these empty promises. The rate of serious crime has risen sharply year on year, despite what the official ‘massaged’ figures from government show.

Just Two Years Old

Every day sees a new horror story in the Press of someone who has been brutally murdered, more often than not by children as young as nine. We have only to remember John Venebles and Robert Thompson who led away, tortured, and then savagely murdered little 2 year-old James Bulger. Another case in point is the terrifying ordeal of two youngsters in Edlington who were sadistically tortured and left for dead by two brothers aged ten and eleven.

But it is not only children that form a major threat to law-abiding citizens, there are also career criminals like Waleed Salem who got off scot-free from a charge of aggravated burglary on the home of Munir Hussain. He had 50 previous convictions but had only ever spent a total of 42 days in jail for all of them. In most cases all he got was a community service sentence. After his run in with Munier Hussain he openly boasted outside the court that the law couldn’t touch him, and the sad thing is, he turned out to be right.

Overcrowding?

Because of the overcrowding in prisons, many often violent criminals are released early after serving only a small fraction of their sentence. In a large number of cases, these people go on to re-offend within weeks of release, and sometimes it involves murder. Once again the case of Venebles and Thompson comes to mind with them being released and given new identities after serving only five years for their horrendous crime. As we all now know, Venebles is back ‘inside’.

The ‘Barmy Brigade’ felt they should be released early “because they were only children” and “came from dysfunctional homes”, as if that excused their vicious crime! It is an inexcusable fact that in lower class homes in particular, although not exclusively, parents today have little or no control over their offspring. In fact, I would dare say there is little interest in bringing up children correctly. Judicial punishment for dysfunctional parents is long overdue in my opinion.

Many parents today seem to think it is the schools responsibility to give their children the necessary lessons in good behaviour, so without the required guidance, is it any wonder we have a generation of tearaways and thugs!

Home From Home

With ever shorter sentences and prisons like 5 star hotels, we are in a period where the average criminal has absolutely no fear of Justice? More often than not, even vicious felons get Community Service for a few weeks and are left in the public domain to continue their nefarious trade. It has been proven time and again that this system does not work because the criminal just ignores the whole thing, and usually no-one can be bothered to check up on them, and they know it. So really it is nothing but a gigantic farce.

All this is put in place because the prisons are full, but are we building new prisons? No! Plans have come and gone, but none have been built. You cannot possibly turn hardened criminals from their chosen way of life unless the punishment is so severe they will not dare re-offend. At the moment its quite the reverse in fact.

The “Do Gooders’ and ‘limp-wristed’ Liberals are so set on making prison life as easy as possible with the intention of “giving the criminal a sense of morality and easing them back into society”. Its pretty obvious they have never been attacked or robbed! Prisoners are released on licence for days at a time during their sentence to allow them to ‘get used to being around people again’. There have been cases where criminals have ‘settled old scores’ on such breaks, meaning someone got killed.

The first job of any new government is to get these ‘Goody Goody’ idiots back out on the street where they can do no more harm, and put an end to all this pussy footing around.

There is a good case for bringing back the death penalty in whatever form, for only then will it be driven home to these lowlifes that the public will not stand for it any more. Kill and you will be killed.

There are of course many who stop short of actual murder but commit vicious crimes nevertheless. For these there should be a regime of hard labour awaiting them once convicted. It is time to end the period of criminals lounging around watching TV, using their computers or playing pool. It is time to stop taking young killers out for a day to Manchester or Blackpool, or to the cinema. It is time for more serious sentencing, because I see little point in a Judge sentencing a killer to 20 years with ‘a minimum of eight to be served’. If you give someone 20 years it should BE 20 years end of story, but Oh Damn! We can’t do that because the prisons are full and Amnesty Int. says every prisoner is entitled to his own cell with all the comforts of home! Atishooo! Sorry I’m allergic to bullshit!

Unless we bring back the death sentence for murder, torture and terrorism, start making prison a thing to be feared, and hand down sentences that fit the crime, we as a society are lost, for the crime rate will continue to spiral out of all control. After all, Britain has certainly the highest crime rate in Europe, and is probably only second in the world to the USA. Crime has not escalated to epidemic proportions in most other countries because they are not run by sleazy governments that are soft on crime, and have not handed responsibility for the running of prisons over to idiots. It is way past time that we returned to the strict regime of the 1940’s and 50’s.

Bringing back the death penalty will not only make killers think twice before committing murder, but it should also help to solve the prison overcrowding problem. Mind you, we may end up with a cemetery overcrowding problem then.

Ah Well! I guess you can’t have everything!

Human Rights? WHAT Human Rights???

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Extradition, Hacker, Human Rights, Immigrants, Insurgents, Muslim, Prison, Relationships, Spain, Travel, UK, UN, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , on 14/03/2010 by floroy1942

A Dubai Restaurant

Equality Laws, Human Rights Laws, we westerners are throwing these around like sweets at a carnival parade, but after giving away these ‘goodies’ to all who come here, has anyone stopped to think if we can expect the same rights in other countries? I’m afraid the whole charade is somewhat one-sided.

To prove my point I quote the case of a British couple in Dubai who were arrested for ‘kissing’ in a restaurant last November. It seems Ayma Najafi gave Charlotte Adams, with whom he was having dinner, a peck on the cheek. This was witnessed by an Emirate woman who complained to the police because her son had witnessed this ‘disgusting’ display. The pair were arrested and sentenced to one month in a Dubai prison for breaking the strict Emirates ‘Decency’ Laws. They were released on bail pending an appeal to be heard in April.

Sex on the Beach?

They are the third couple to be arrested for such ‘offences’ in the last two years. Among them is Michelle Palmer, who along with her companion was sentenced to three months for having sex on a public beach, although to be honest I do find that somewhat justified. They were lucky to have their sentences quashed and deported.

In many Muslim countries, anything resembling a show of affection in a public place, even non-married couples holding hands, is strict taboo with the real threat of a prison sentence if you do not comply.

As a westerner, you would consider it your human right to show affection for someone even in a public place. The French and Spanish, among others, kiss you on both cheeks in a normal greeting, in France even the men but thank goodness not the Spanish (I live here). Phew!

The Human Rights Charter is a United Nations document presumably signed, and applying to all nations. So how is it you can get arrested and jailed in Muslim states for a kiss?

Britain in particular, being the country I know most about, has given away everything, even common sense in the name of human rights and equality, and

I Know My Rights!

there, more than any other country the laws are misused for personal gain. Known terrorist sympathisers and agitators like Abu Qutada have twisted and used the human rights laws to escape extradition and jail. Waled Salem, an Egyptian career criminal escaped jail by playing the human rights card. Gary Mckinnon the Pentagon hacker is currently using the same law in an attempt to escape extradition to the USA.

So where does that leave the British tourist and businessman going to these countries, actually ‘in a straitjacket’ comes to mind. Everyday things that we take for granted will get you a prison sentence in places like Dubai.

On the subject of religion, which for us is everyone’s right, if you are a non-Muslim don’t go looking for a church, or hold a prayer meeting in Saudi Arabia. ALL forms of worship outside of Islam are strictly forbidden in Saudi and any attempt at worship will get you arrested by the Religious Police. Even the open wearing of a crucifix is enough to get you into trouble. The Law states you may be; e.g., a Christian, but forbids you from any act of worship or wearing of signs of your faith. Like most Muslim states, the dress code for women is especially strict. Even as a tourist, a woman is expected to cover up when in public.

UN Charter of Human Rights

So I have to ask, where does this leave our infamous Human Rights Charter? It would seem to apply to any country that is not a Muslim State where any show of affection, or religion other that Islam is strictly forbidden.

It is without doubt a one-sided affair and perhaps it is time for a complete review. Western Governments like the British Labour Party must stop giving away the rights of ethnic Britons in favour of Muslim immigrants, for they will not return the favour. Also, the Islamic countries need to relax their stringent religious code drawn up it would seem to ensure male dominance. It goes without saying that respect for each others way of life is paramount, but to jail a couple for a peck on the cheek is going way too far.

Inshallah.

Intuitive Joke!

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Immigrants, Modern World, UK with tags , , , , , , , on 14/03/2010 by floroy1942

Street Football-Bahgdad

This is something I received through my e-mail from a friend, and I found it so typical of modern times in Britain that I decided to reproduce it here. It is a joke, but perfectly describes the way our country is going down hill.

The Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez, flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play football, and suitably impressed, arranges for him to come over to Anfield.

Two weeks later Liverpool are 4-0 down to Manchester Utd with only 20 minutes left to play. The manager gives the young Iraqi striker the nod and on he goes.

Liverpool-Steven Gerrard

The lad is a sensation, scores 5 goals in 20 minutes and wins the game for Liverpool. The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media love the new star.

When the player comes off the pitch he phones his mum to tell her about his first day in English football.

‘Hello mum, guess what?’ he says ‘I played for 20 minutes today, and we were 4-0 down but I scored 5 and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the media, they all love me.’

‘Wonderful,’ says his mum, ‘Let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed; your sister and I were ambushed, gang-raped and beaten, and your brother has joined a gang of looters who also deal drugs….. and all while you were having such a great time playing bloody football.’

The young lad is very upset. ‘What can I say mum, I’m so sorry.’

‘Sorry?!!! Sorry?!!!’ shrieks his mum, ‘It’s your bloody fault we moved to Liverpool in the first place.’

Funny, but also quite intuitive for a joke don’t you think! My thanks to the anonymous writer, and to my friend who sent it to me.

Remember the old maxim; “Don’t let the b*gg*rs grind you down!!!”

Crazy? You Couldn’t Make It Up! Series 1 Episode 5

Posted in Britain, England, Insanity, Modern World, Obesity, Overweight, Traffic, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 13/03/2010 by floroy1942

This last week has seen another crop of crazy and off-beat stories in the English Press. Some are so mind-boggling that one has to wonder at the intelligence level of people and institutions, but on the other hand, some of it is good-ish. Even the Labour Government falls into the weird category with the first story this week (Nothings changed there then!).

Mmmm! Delicious!

The government National Food Agency (FSA) is asking fish and chip shops to sell thicker chips rather than the normal chips because they say it will help in the Labour battle against obesity in the land. According to the ‘experts’, thicker chips contain less fat than their thinner counterpart, and are therefore ‘more healthy’. That is, if chips can be considered healthy at all.

Food Tasting

In a pilot scheme, the FSA is sending out ‘advisors’ to all fish and chip shops in Cambridgeshire who will measure the fat content of chips on sale, and advise the owner on improvements. Should this prove satisfactory the scheme will be applied to the whole country.

Needless to say, the attitude of the retailers is “Hands off our chips” because they say, fast food outlets sell extremely thin French fries

A La Fast Food!

while theirs are much thicker. And they do have a point! If you have ever been to Burger King, KFC or the American Embassy (Mcdonald’s to the uninitiated) you will find their chips are like matchsticks. Its probably all a storm in a teacup, but considering the British eat 1.5 million tons of chips a year as part of 225 million meals served per year. Thats an awful lot of chips off the old block!!!

If you have a yen(?) to go to Beijing in China you may be interested to know that the Chinese are planning to build a railway line with high

The Harmony Express

speed trains that will get you there, from London, in two days. That’s 5,070 miles (following the crow) in just two days, or if you go on to Singapore you will cover 6,750 miles in three days. Fair takes the breath away!

These clever people are planning routes from China to Europe, India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia and Singapore.

The trains will run at 200 mph across 17 countries crossing the continents of Asia and Europe in a network connecting all the major cities. They are currently expanding their domestic rail routes with an extra 19,000 miles of track, and already have the world’s fastest train, the Harmony

All Strapped In - Ready to Go.

Express which travels at an amazing 250 mph. I hope the passengers have some means of ejection other than the conductor throwing them off the train (ejector seats!!!) You have to hand it to these fiendishly clever Orientals. I doubt Confucius has a saying to cover that!!!

Have you heard the one about the pharmacy assistant who refused to give a 38 year-old woman ‘The Pill’ because it was against her religion? It happened to Janine Deeley, a mother with two children, who took a doctor’s prescription to her local chemist. She was

The Pharmacy

prescribed the pill by her doctor because she suffers from a condition that gives her extreme abdominal pains during ‘that time of the month’ (you know what I mean, well, women do anyway). When she went to have her prescription filled the assistant refused to give her ‘the pill’ because she said it was against her religion!

Needless to say, Ms. Deeley complained and after the story hit the Press the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great

RSPGB

Britain (RPSGB) said the pharmacist was acting within her rights. According to this high and mighty clique, a pharmacist has the right to refuse such a request on religious grounds, providing they make no attempt to force their personal view on someone else. If there were many like her the birth rate would go through the roof!!!

There are many opinions on speed cameras and if you ask the average British motorist he will call them money-making machines for

Speed Camera

the local council. Well, this opinion may well be accurate in at least one case anyway. A particular speed camera at road

Gotcha!

works on the M6 near Carlisle has made £334,000 from 5,569 naughty speed devils for the local council in just five weeks. If the trend continues, this single camera will make £500,000 during the two months it will have taken to repair the road at that point. That is the same as £3 million in a year, which breaks a record by a camera on the M11 which cost unwary drivers £1 million in a single year. Could it be the local councillors are each planning to buy a villa in Spain!!!

If you think the National Health Service in Britain is on its knees you wouldn’t be far wrong, and here is a case in point. Donatella Coppini, who suffers from osteoarthritis of the spine and can only walk with difficulty on crutches, was in such pain her partner was

Southend A&E

forced to take her to the hospital. They arrived in the family car and he parked just 150m away from the entrance while he went inside to ask for assistance in getting her into the A & E Department. To his disbelieve he was told to dial 999 (the emergency number) and call for an ambulance. It was 150m that’s all. They both had to wait in the car until an ambulance arrived and the Paramedics could help her into the hospital.

Ambulance for 150m?

Dr. Caroline Howard, the Clinical Director of A & E at Southend Hospital said staff at Reception were ‘not trained in helping patients’. She went on to add “this is standard procedure” and also “we have a set ratio of nursing staff in our A&E department and if any staff leave the department, it leaves us short to care for patients.”

Perhaps the following sign should be put up by the door! ‘NHS patients are requested not to be ill outside the door of A & E, but if you cannot avoid it please ring 999. Thank you. The Management!!!

Oh to be in England, now the Looneys have taken over!

Social Networking – A Parents Dilemma

Posted in Child Abuse, Children, England, Justice, Modern World, Relationships, Teens, UK with tags , , , , , , , , on 10/03/2010 by floroy1942

Social network sites like e.g. Facebook, have been around now for quite some time and attract a huge following, especially among the young. In light of events over the past couple of years, many parents with young children, in particular girls, are in a quandary as to what to do about it. With ever increasing use of these sites by pedophiles it is extremely hard to protect youngsters from these preying perverts.

An Innocent Victim

Just recently in Co. Durham, England, a young 17 year-old girl called Ashleigh Hall was raped and brutally murdered by a pedophile called Peter Chapman after he persuaded the girl to meet him using a social network site. Like most of his kind he was trolling the social networking sites looking for innocent young girls he could pull into his evil web. Men of his ilk pretend to be young attractive males and are well into the sort of language used on the internet by the young.

For example, you or I would have no idea what A, S, L means, but in teen-speak it means Age; Sex; Location. Most pedophiles are adept at using the right language and tactics to get any girl to meet them. In cases where police officers have pretended to be a young girl, many of these perverts make no bones about what they are after and are quite blatant. Some will make it clear they are after sex or a webcam show, and others just want an audience while they masturbate on webcam.

Most people now know the shocking details of the Ashleigh Hall case so I won’t go into it here, but suffice to say that Chapman is just one of thousands of evil men who use the social networking sites to find victims. They have become adept at searching out those young girls who are vulnerable through their own curiosity, or feelings of inadequacy. It has become the ‘Holy Grail’ for predatory perverts.

As a parent it is extremely difficult to police the use of such sites as Facebook with young offspring. If you ban them from using it they will most likely go to a friends house and use it behind your back, but if you allow them unrestricted use they may fall prey to sick individuals like Chapman. The sticking point is to find a happy medium between the two extremes. Unfortunately, if you look in on your darling while she is chatting there is no way of telling if the young man she is in contact with is the real thing, or a pedophile. Even she would not know unless it was a friend she already knew.

Peter Chapman

Many pedophiles pretend to be a boy about the same age, or slightly older than the girl they are trying to entrap. Part of the scam is to use photos of some good looking young man with plenty of muscles, and in many cases its hard for girls to resist the charms of the ‘young Adonis’. They often set up another false identity as a young girl with whom the victim can converse, and they will of course confirm that the ‘young man’ in question is ‘a dream come true’.

They rely a great deal on the natural human instinct of curiosity in a young teenage girl regarding sex. Girls, and for that matter boys too, hear all about it from friends, see it at the movies and on TV and then the natural curiosity factor takes over. They want to try it just to see if its as good as everyone says it is. Like learning to walk, it is natural. You can warn them all you like, but the ‘Curiosity Factor’ must be satisfied.

When I was a young man these problems were non-existent, not only because we didn’t have computers, but there was a sense of

Pregnant Teen

Morality that has since been swept away. Children today are bombarded with sex from all sides, Videos, TV, movies, and not forgetting the computer. The liberalisation of our modern day society has its price, as we see with the number of unmarried teenage mothers and a terrible increase in sex crime. The one goes with the other, and to put it another way ‘You cannot have your cake and eat it too!!!’ (As a saying I always found that one a bit weird. Why would you have cake if not to eat it? Never mind, the meaning is however clear.)

Personally, I find that more responsibility should be taken by the sites themselves. They are after all the ones who provide the service for youngsters and should carry some of the responsibility for policing its use. I often wonder why the I.P address of every person you are in contact with is not automatically logged and saved on your computer along with dates and times? Why for example cannot the, e.g., last five chats you have not be stored in the computer memory for a period of perhaps a week or a month automatically?  It should not be too difficult to amend social network programmes to do this when people join. A statement to the effect that these measures are taken when people sign in to the site may prove enough to deter these animals.

Who Are You Chatting To?

Such measures may not stop the children from making silly and sometimes deadly mistakes, but it will give the predators some food for thought, knowing their IP address and last chat is stored on the victims computer. It will also make it easier for the police to track down any individual with a dubious character if a crime does take place. It’s just a silly idea I have that may be possible, but only a computer expert (of which I am not one) will be able to give a definitive answer on its feasibility. If you are a computer expert, perhaps you would like to comment on the possibilities of such an action!

There is one other thing that can be done to put a stop to this evil; the castration of all convicted pedophiles without the right of appeal. If it doesn’t put the fear of God into them it will at least make sure they don’t do it again.

Without a doubt, in these troubled times definitive action is necessary to stop these evil men from destroying the lives of our young girls.

What say you?

Roy.

P.S. A newspaper report by the Daily Mail, which first broke this story, is in trouble with Facebook who are threatening to sue The Mail over the piece that formed the basis for this blog. In order to ensure I do not get sued I have made a few changes. It would seem the Mail news item was not intended by the author to target Facebook as such, but this decision was taken by Mail editorial staff. Face book have said they feel their image has been damaged by the report and thus feel entitled to take legal action. The Daily Mail did change the title of the piece after objections were voiced, and have since printed a public apology.

For Those Who Doubt the Growing Muslim Influence in Britain

Posted in Al Quada, Elections, England, Immigrants, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, UK with tags , , , , , on 08/03/2010 by floroy1942

Yesterday saw yet more headlines about the growing influence of Muslim groups on British politics. It has been revealed that the Islamic Forum Europe (IFE – mentioned in my 28/2/2010 blog: Britain Beware the Viper in Thy Bosom) tried unsuccessfully, to get Ken Livingston elected Mayor of London again at the last Mayoral elections. Despite their efforts Boris Johnson was elected.

Says It All!

At the time of the election there was an unexplained massive vote swing in favour of Mr, Livingston in the eastern part of the capitol, until now! New information shows that in one area, Spitalsfield, his share of the vote rose 39% from 29.6% in 2004 to 68.4% in 2008. In other high Muslim population areas like Tower Hamlets and the borough of Newham his popularity suddenly jumped by 23 and 36%.

What Congestion Charge?

Now how could it be that a man like Livingston suddenly became so popular? The answer is the IFE got their people out to vote for him. But why would the Muslim community of London prefer Ken over Boris? After all, it was ‘Red Ken’ who introduced the Congestion Charge onto London’s roads.

It would appear that Ken’s London Development Agency (LDA) had agreed a Grant of £1.3 million to the East London Mosque which is controlled by the IFE. At least one member of the LDA was against the Grant saying he ‘could see no reason for it’, but was overruled and the Mosque received the money. Another attribute Ken had in the eyes of the IFE was his opposition to the war in Iraq, and his support for the Palestinian cause.

As stated in my last post on the subject, the IFE is a radical organisation that wants to see Sharia Law imposed in Britain, and to turn this country, and the whole of Europe into an Islamic State. They have already successfully infiltrated the Labour Party and many areas of local government which allows them to spread their influence even further. A member of the IFE, Azad Ali along with Anas al-Tikriti of the British Muslim Initiative have been running a group called ‘Muslims 4 Ken’ which had the dubious task of ensuring Ken’s election.

Mr. Ali has a blog it seems, and on it he says that Al Queda is a myth, praised one of Bin Ladens’ associates and even went so far as to justify the killing of British troops in Iraq.

Now let it be clearly understood that I have no hatred towards Muslims and have no ill-feelings towards them, although some readers of my posts may think otherwise. I am perfectly happy to welcome them as additions to the British population if they are prepared to accept our ways, culture and traditions, as most of them do. What I do not like are individuals who think they can take over the country, trash our culture and destroy our traditions, while all the time living off the backs of the British tax payer.

I am quite sure that any individual who sees his/her country torn apart from the inside will feel the same way. Just imagine the feelings of an American if Muslim Groups started infiltrating Capitol Hill with the aim of making the USA a Muslim State? I don’t think it would go down very well!

Hirsi Ali

Years ago Enoch Powell made his famous speech in the Houses of Parliament and was shouted down. Geert Wilders and Hirsi Ali, are both Dutch politicians, who have the guts to speak out against the Islamization of Europe. Wilders was refused entry to the United Kingdom last year for being a ‘racist’. Both of them require twenty-four hour security because they have been targeted by Muslim extremists.

Anti-Geert Wilders Demonstration

 

I take my hat off (well I would if I was wearing one) to all three of the aforementioned people with vision. It’s a shame most of the British population are either too blind or stupid to see what is going on.

I wonder what the history books will say of this period in human evolution?

The Plastic Island Part 2

Ocean Plastic

On the 22 February (Welcome to Plastic Island) I reported on the huge islands of floating plastic rubbish that pollute our world seas, and today more information has come to light. It would seem the problem is far bigger than first thought, as it has now been determined the patch of floating plastic in the Pacific is now twice the size of the US State of Texas, and increasing rapidly. This means the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ as it is now called, extends now for 1,392,400 sq/km and that is about six-and-a-half times the size of Great Britain and almost 1% of the entire ocean.

Your Beach?

But I hear you say, 1% of the largest ocean on the planet is not much, but the size is increasing rapidly with every passing year. Should it continue to increase at its present rate, by the year 2050 you may well be able to walk from Hawaii to the American mainland. Walk along any beach after the winter storms and you will find it littered with plastic rubbish, and then imagine this is but an infinitesimal fraction of the rubbish littering our oceans.

Imagine the Ocean Like This

Beginning just 500 miles off the Californian coast, this area is now the largest conglomeration of rubbish on the planet, with an estimated 100,000,000 tons of bottles, plastic bags, flip flops, shampoo bottles, plastic swimming pools, children’s toys, plastic cups and tyres among other things. If its made of plastic you will find it there. Among the debris can be found items with Chinese and Japanese markings, which show some of it has travelled the entire width of the Pacific before being caught up in the vortex, or gyre.

The area is so clogged with plastic that it resembles more a thick soup than water, and much of the older rubbish floats just below the surface because it has been broken down by the sun. Most worrying to scientists, is plastic very often contains toxic chemicals that can have a devastating effect on fish stocks.

Death by Plastic

Considering that 60% of all fish caught in all the oceans comes from the Pacific, this could have an alarming effect on the economies of many countries in the future. Fish and seabirds exists on the tiny plankton that abound in the world’s oceans, but the catastrophic fact about these ocean garbage patches is, that once the plastic is broken down and reduced in size by the sun, it often resembles food to the fish and birds. In the contaminated areas and their surroundings, the level of plastic pellets is six times higher than the plankton. Sampling recently revealed a single fish had ingested 26 pieces of plastic and there is little doubt this debris will eventually work its way into the food chain, if it hasn’t already.

Ocean Rubbish Gyres

Also disturbing, is a similar plastic vortex which has been found in the Central Atlantic Ocean with the high probability of another being in the southern part, plus one in the Indian Ocean. Oceanographers are convinced more will be discovered in time. It does not matter from which point you throw a plastic bottle into the sea, at some point in the future it will end up in one of these plastic dumps in mid ocean. Plastic does not degrade like most other materials, once its made its here forever, with the only successful means of getting rid of it being burning. The trouble there is we are then contaminating the air with the toxic content.

A team of volunteers from the Kaisai Conservation Project intend to send two ships to the area in an attempt to find out if this plastic waste can be turned into fuel. I for one hope this project turns out to be successful, and that soon we see ships trawling the seas collecting this rubbish and cleaning up our most precious asset from whence all life came.

Age Challenged (politically correct) Exodus

Posted in Britain, England, Immigrants, Modern World, Old Age Pensioner, Senior Citizen, Spain, Teen alcohol abuse, Teen Violence, Teens, Travel, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/03/2010 by floroy1942

Good-bye Britain

It would seem those with the most common sense, and can afford it, are leaving Britain in droves. And why not? Statistics published today by the Home Office reveal that people over the age of 55 are emigrating as fast as they can get their bags packed. The main reasons are, fear of crime (but Gordon said…….), the weather, and the ‘creaking economy’. The Home Office graph shows the sharp rise in emigration since Labour came to power. No surprises there!

Only this last week Gordon Brown was castigating the Conservative Party for stoking people’s fear of crime in an effort to win the election. According to our erstwhile ‘I’m in touch with the people’ Prime Minister, this was all a pack of lies! Could it be then that all the emigrants are Tory voters who were conned by David Cameron?

Drunken Violence

Take a walk through the centre of any town or city of a Saturday evening if you dare. The drunken teenager culture so prevalent in English life today means you will more likely end up in the casualty department of your local hospital rather than back at home. When you consider that you are not even safe in your own home there has to be a point when people say enough is enough! But not to worry folks, it’s all Tory propaganda!

English Winter

No-one can fault people for wanting to get away from today’s dull, grey and wet English weather and exchange it for a life in the sun, you would be mad if you loved English weather! Like me, most over 50’s will remember when summer’s were real. First the awakening of Mother Nature after her winter sleep with the woods (we had them then) carpeted with snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells, followed by three months of balmy warm weather slowly moving into autumn and harvest time as the leaves turned all colours of brown. Not any more, climate change has taken care of that. Now the British people, and others, are faced with major storms, snow and ice, and not to forget the annual flooding that has become a main feature of English weather.

Spanish Winter

As far as the ‘creaking economy’ is concerned, life must surely be better somewhere else. Gordon Brown, along with the aid of the bankers, has driven the country into debt to the tune of billions of pounds, and its anybody’s guess as to when the economy will recover. But immigrants are still given thousands of pounds in handouts which they should not be entitled to (some to pay for the £2 million houses they are living in) just so Labour has their votes.

John Bull

Quite rightly, most people in this age group feel that Britain has lost its national identity and is unrecognisable from the country they grew up in. They have seen the gradual erosion of the British way of life, sucked out by the Labour Party since it came to power. In those far off days crime was so low that it wasn’t even necessary to lock your door when you went away on holiday. My grandparents never did, but try that today and you will find your house empty when you return.

The Home Office figures reveal that a staggering 42% of people over 55 wish to leave for sunnier climes, and 38% hope to do it in the next 5 years. The most favoured places for ex-pats are France, Spain and Cyprus, with many considering, or have moved to, Australia and New Zealand. It is certain that the unexpectedly high exodus of the moment is but a drop in the ocean compared to what it will be in five to ten years time. By then I fully expect the percentages to increase dramatically as people get so fed up with it all they do not even wait for retirement.

It all goes to prove that this once mighty and proud nation is finished. Ethnic Britons might just as well get out and leave the land to the immigrants and their ‘masters’, the Labour Party. History has shown that the glory of any nation is but transitory, and now it is the turn of Britain.

Last One? Turn Out the Lights!

I once joked, ‘Will the last Englishman to leave the country please turn out the lights’. Little did I realise the time for ‘lights out’ was so close. Sometime within the next twenty years the immigrant population in the UK will be high enough for them to take over completely and when that time comes I can see a mad scramble for the boats.

There will be many who think I am mad because of my views, but Hear Ye!, many people thought Enoch Powell was mad when he made his famous speech in the House of Commons, and he turned out to be right! History will prove one of us right!

I shouldn’t be so gloomy, after all at my age it hardly matters. Does it?

Crazy? You couldn’t Make It Up! Season 1 Episode 4

Gimmee Some Peas

Today we begin with the tale of a cat that most certainly has nine lives. A black and white 1 year-old was trapped in a warehouse freezer kept at a constant -2*C for a period of four weeks, and survived. The cat apparently entered the warehouse freezer from the back of a lorry and was seen on several occasions over a period of a month by warehouse staff, but they couldn’t catch him. It was only when the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) were called in that the animal was rescued. It seems the cat survived the big freeze by eating frozen peas and licking moisture from cartons. The poor thing did not escape scot-free however for it was necessary to amputate its tail and ears which had suffered frostbite. Thankfully it has made a full recovery and is now with a new owner. Not quite a case of ‘curiosity killed the cat’ thank goodness!!!

Move Boy -Go Do Yoga!

The Labour government has come up with another amazing scheme that is to say the least, laughable. They are currently hiring 1000 ‘Lifestyle Coaches’, and their job – teach child ‘couch-potato’s’ yoga and cheer-leading. So how does that grab you? The funny part about this ridiculous waste of public funds is at the same time they are doing this, they are selling off all the school sports fields where children could be doing sports. Yoga and cheer-leading will I suspect be bottom on the list of priorities of today’s computer and gaming youth. Far better I would have thought to have them doing sports during school hours so they get to move their little fat backsides once in a while!!!

I Got More Bugs Than I Used To!

It ceases to amaze me how scientists can come up with the craziest research and call it science. Today a team from Emory University in Atlanta Georgia have come up with the theory that obesity is caused by a ‘tummy bug’ that makes you eat. In the journal ‘Science’ they say tests carried out on mice, but relevant to humans, indicates a bug in the digestive tract that makes you want to eat more. Out the window go all the theories that fat people get that way from over-eating and lack of exercise. So if you are obese you can blame something other than your own self indulgence. Phew! You see, it’s not my fault!!!

Ughhhh! Yes! Yes!

Parents of children attending East Wol Primary School in Legbourn Lincolshire, are livid at the fact their 7 year-old darlings have been shown a controversial Channel 4 Cartoon video about SHHHH! S-E-X! The fuss is about a sex education video made by Channel 4 that has been circulating in schools  for almost ten years and has been very well received. One mother, who took her child out of the school said; “The cartoon was very graphic. My daughter was frightened and children have unfortunately been copying what they have seen“(Oops!). She went on; “Seven to nine-year-olds should not possess this knowledge. There is no educational or psychological benefit or need for children of this age to have full knowledge of what sexual intercourse actually entails.” It would seem the cartoon is extremely explicit, with the voiceover saying it is exciting (that rather depends on how good your partner is)!!!

Urghh! My Head!

You should be happy to know that you do not need to suffer a hangover after the night before anymore. I bet that’s good news to a lot of people! A team of researchers from South Korea’s Chungnam National University’s College of Pharmacy found that if oxygen is added to alcoholic drinks you do not get a hangover after consuming large amounts. It would seem that the elevated oxygen levels break down the alcohol much quicker in the body and increase the metabolism. The down-side, there has to be one, you do not stay drunk as long as you used to be. Bummer!!!!

Last but not least, a tale from the US. Eliza Gonzalez of New Jersey carved a copy of the Venus De Milo statue on her front lawn

Modesty Madness

and had many people stop by to admire it. The statue was without head and arms, cut off from the knees…….and just like the original, naked! And that was the problem. While many people admired her handiwork, one of her neighbours complained to the police. So along comes the black and white complete with two baffled police officers who tell her she has to cover ‘the naughty’ bits or tear it down. Hence, Venus de Milo a’ la New Jersey now wears a bikini top and a beach wrap. Some people should be put out of our (their) misery!!!

Stay Happy. Till next time.

Now Homo’s Can Sue the Clergy!

Posted in Children, England, Gays, Homosexuals, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Parliament, Relationships, UK, UN, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/03/2010 by floroy1942

The time is almost here when homosexuals can sue clergy who refuse to ‘marry’ them in a church. In a new ‘Human Rights’ twist, the latest amendment to Harriet Harman’s Equality Bill could force priests to go against their faith and beliefs, or be sued on the grounds of human rights violations.

Lord Alli at a Gay Parade

A last minute amendment to the Bill introduced by homosexual Peer Lord Waheed Alli in the House of Lords was passed even though the change was introduced too late for any form of debate. It allows for the first time, homosexual ‘marriages’ i.e. Civil Partnerships, to be performed in our churches. While the new amendment does state that these ceremonies may be carried out in places of worship, it also allows for national faith groups to refuse to carry them out. However, according to high ranking politicians and clergymen, this leaves the door open for any priest who refuses to perform the service to be sued by the homosexual couple under the Discrimination Laws of the Human Rights Act.

The Human Rights Act finds its roots in the Declaration of Human Rights introduced by the United Nations Assembly in 1948, and was intended to ensure that everyone is treated equally, based on the standards of the time. When the declaration was drafted, no-one could for-see that during the last three decades the original intention of the Charter was to be hi-jacked by many fringe groups like

Abu Qatada-Used Human Rights Law

non-whites, immigrants and homosexuals, who saw it as a way to get what they want. This includes criminals who have in many instances used the Act as a means to escape justice.

It comes as part of a government attempt to outlaw bias against homosexuals and minority groups, and to my mind is just another ploy by Labour to grab the homosexual vote in the next election. Civil Partnerships have to date been allowed only in non-religious premises like Registry Offices, hotels and stately homes, with places of worship excluded. Now that barrier has been removed.

Although the document states ‘national faith groups will not be forced to carry out civil partnerships’, many believe that same-sex couples will seek redress against clergy who refuse to ‘marry’ them in church under the Equality Bill or Human Rights Act.

Both the Catholic and Anglican Churches stand fast on the 2000 year old doctrine that marriage is a sacred union between a man and a women, and why shouldn’t they?

Lord Waddington

Lord Waddington, a former Home Secretary said; “If this amendment were carried, it would only be a matter of time before it was argued that it was discriminatory for a church incumbent to refuse to allow a civil partnership ceremony to take place when the law allowed it.” He added; “a clergyman prepared to register marriages but not to register civil partnerships would be accused of discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in the provision of services, and pressure would be brought to bear on him to pocket his principles and do what he believed to be wrong”.

Crucifix

What this means in a nutshell is the clergy would be caught between allegiance to their principles and beliefs, or a costly day in court! It would seem individual priests and clergymen have no human rights at all! Well maybe not so, but shall we say homosexuals have a lot more rights because they know how to milk the system!

There are some churches that welcome the idea of performing civil unions for homosexuals. A group of liberal Jews, Quakers and Unitarians have stepped forth to declare they welcome the idea. This does not however solve the problem for the Catholic and Anglican Churches who hold steadfast on their beliefs.

There is little doubt that homosexuals couples will be lining up at the church doors as soon as this amendment is passed into law, if only to

Togetherness - Bah Humbug!

see if they can get away with it. When that happens, there will doubtless be much soul-searching among the clergy. I cannot see the Catholic Church giving way on this issue, but I hesitate to give the same assurance with regard to the Anglican Church. It is possible they will see no other way than to bow to the inevitable or risk costly law suites by frustrated homosexual couples.

I find it disgusting that this group of misfits cannot be satisfied with what they have achieved already, i.e. legal partnerships under the law and the right to adopt children, but no, they must have their cake and eat it too! Peter Tatchall, a well-known campaigner for homo rights has already stated; “Our next goal is to secure marriage equality, to end the prohibition on lesbian and gay couples having a civil marriage in a registry office.” In other words they want to have the same status and rights, and be properly married in church in the same way normal married couples do. Will these people never be satisfied?

What makes them think they should have the same rights as a married man and woman? To achieve what they are after they will destroy whatever remains of the sanctity of marriage, and destroy whatever morality there is left in the world. It will make a mockery of every normal couples marriage and destroy the last vestiges of decency that exists. Yes! I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but its what I and many others believe, even though we have no say in the matter.

OK! So Who Do I Call Mummy?

And what about the children! So far as homosexuals adopting children is concerned, I find it abhorrent, and in no way believe that any child with two male parents stands any chance of a normal upbringing, despite them not being short on love for the child. Homosexual adoption is as yet in its infancy, and no-one can tell what the long term affects will be on a child’s development. I guess the picture on the left says it all.

Accuse me of ‘gay bashing’ if you like, but  that is not my intention, I just wish they behaved like normal individuals then there would be no need for this blog. I fail to see why normal people must have the ‘gay’ agenda shoved down their throats every day of the year. The disgusting display of men cavorting in skimpy outfits during a ‘gay parade, that normal people would get arrested for wearing in public are a disgrace. Be a homosexual if you wish, but keep it to yourselves, leave the church alone, and stop flaunting your deviance like a badge of honour!

In conclusion I have only this to say, if we throw away the last vestiges of morality and decency we will be left with anarchy.

Roy.


Gordon, You’re So Out of Touch!

Posted in Britain, Elections, England, Immigration, Justice, Muslim, Parliament, Prison, Teen alcohol abuse, UK, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 03/03/2010 by floroy1942

Praying for a Win?

Gordon Brown has once again proved how out of touch he is with the people of Britain. In a speech given to the Thames Valley Police last Monday he had the gall to suggest the ‘fear of crime’ by the population was nothing more than a political ploy by the Tories! What planet does this guy live on?

Fear of crime has been one of the main causes of concern for people in all walks of life for a decade! People no longer feel safe walking down the street of most towns and cities in the UK, and certainly not in their own home. Since the rise of the drunken yob culture in Britain it would be a brave man or woman who walks through the town centre on a Saturday evening. And yet, our esteemed Prime Minister thinks it’s a Tory ploy to get more votes.

Labour has been soft on crime ever since it came to power, in fact, it has exasperated the situation with its immigration policy because many of those responsible for the crime wave are immigrants. The Justice System is on the verge of total collapse due to his governments policy of releasing prisoners early and giving shorter sentences to ease the prison overcrowding instead of building more prisons.

Edlington Twins

Someone who commits cold-blooded murder gets less time in prison than a caring relative who assists a terminally ill patient in great pain to die. Career criminals are given community sentences which most of them ignore, and vicious torturers like the Edlington twins will be out in less than five years with a new identity.

He told the Thames Valley Police that in the last ten years prison sentences have ‘gone up’. What were they prior to that, zero? The number of repeat offenders who were released early has gone up dramatically since Labour swept to power in 1997, but nothing has been done to get these people off the streets.

Habitual Criminal Walid Salem

The case of Waled Salem the Egyptian career criminal who was caught by millionaire Munier Hussain and finally taught a lesson is a fine example, a lesson I might add that saw Hussain and his brother go to jail and Salem let off!

Prisoner Tag

Now Labour is apologising to jailbirds who will not be released early under the cancelled End of Custody Licence (ECL) Scheme and offering them early release with a tag. Under the ECL scheme, prisoners were released up to eighteen days before completion of their sentence, but under the new plan, they would be released up to four-and-a-half-months early! I can hear the cheers from the prisoners from here!

Another bone of contention brought to light yesterday by Lord Cary, a former Archbishop of Canterbury, accuses the government of ‘a strident and bullying campaign’ to marginalise Christianity in the name of political correctness. He said; “We have reached a point where politicians are mocked for merely expressing their faith….I cannot imagine any politician expressing concern that Britain should remain a Christian country. That reticence is a scandal and a disgrace to our history”.

Outspoken

Speaking before the Christian Broadcasting Council he highlighted two cases of people being victimised because of their faith. Olive Jones was sacked from her position as teacher for offering to pray for a cancer patient with whom she was working, and Caroline Petrie, a nurse in Somerset was suspended for offering to pray for a patient on her ward. She was later reinstated after a public outcry.

He is not the only one of our top clergy to express such a view. Last month Dr. John Sentamu the Bishop of York made his views known with the following; “Christianity is being pushed out of public life in a ‘ferocious and insidious manner'”.

Just how far down this ‘Politically Correct’ path are we expected to go. The government is without doubt backing this ridiculous practice, and so are the courts. Are we to remove all signs of religion in the country so we don’t upset the Muslims. Must they rule our country? Unless drastic steps are taken to reassert the rights of Britons in their own country, they will be within a few short years. They are already well on the way to achieving complete domination of local and national government.

Its the same old ‘elections are near’ bullshit from both the major political parties who are trying to dazzle, or more likely ‘con’ us into voting for them. As usual they pump out the same old rhetoric of how they alone are capable of ‘saving the nation’, but its all a smokescreen because once they are in power all the promises will be forgotten and it will be ‘business as usual’.

The Labour strategy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of labour supporting immigrants has kept them in power for far too long and now it is time they were put out to graze. They have done more than enough damage to our homeland, damage which I am sorry to say, may be irreversible.

David Cameron

No government in the history of our nation has done as much damage to our once proud nation, and so successfully sabotaged all the sacrifices made by previous generations to keep our country great. It is time for them to be consigned to history with the hope that the next government has the guts to salvage what is left of our land and our culture before it disappears into history. Whatever you do, don’t expect ‘Smoothie’ Cameron and his bunch to change anything if they win the election.

May God have mercy on us all!

Roy.
