Is It Time For Cameron To Go?

Posted in Children, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, Europe, Gays, Human Rights, Immigration, News, Parenting with tags , , , , on 31/01/2014 by floroy1942

I never thought I would say this, for I have been willing to give Cameron a chance to right the many wrongs bequeathed to him by the last Labour government. With the latest developments however, I am ready to admit perhaps it is time for him to go.

Syrian Refugees

Syrian Refugees

Two things came up in the last few days that have turned me against him. The first was that Britain immediately stepped to the forefront of all European nations and volunteered to take in hundreds of refugees from the fighting in Syria. While my heart goes out to these poor people, I have to ask why Britain should be in the lead? What about the other European countries like Germany, Holland, France etc. Why did the British government have to be the leader?

I also have to ask, why are the other Arab nations like Saudi Arabia and the many other Middle East nations standing on the sidelines and doing absolutely nothing to (a) stop the war in Syria and (b) doing more to assimilate the refugees?  Sure, they have refugee camps but they are not making any attempt to give these people a proper home by allowing them to integrate into their society. They just maintain the camps and expect European countries to give the refugees a permanent home.

We already have more than enough immigrants in the country thanks to Labour, and now the Tories are opening the door again. We should have stood back and found out how many of these poor people other European countries were willing to take before we jumped in. But no, we have our international reputation to think about!

Time To Think What You Are Doing

Time To Think What You Are Doing

The British tax payer is already carrying a massive burden supporting the hundreds of thousands Labour let in. Now we will have to feed, clothe and house hundreds more refugees.

Another question comes to the fore, are they also to be given British citizenship and become permanent residents like those in Labour times?

While it is right and proper to help these refugees, there should be a limit on how much we do for them. The British people themselves are going through a very tough time and we should be helping our own first. It is a fact that this country just cannot afford to be at the forefront of such things any more. It would seem the Cameron government have still not learnt that lesson.

The second thing that got my goat is the government handing out extra tax payers money to homosexual groups to help them protest at the Sochi Games in Russia. Mr, Cameron, what happens in other countries regarding this issue is none of the British tax payers concern. If these people wish to protest at the stance Russia is taking on this problem then let them pay for it themselves. Why in fact are we giving these people any tax payers money at all? It’s disgraceful!

Miller - She Could Better Keep Her Mouth Closed

Miller – She Could Better Keep Her Mouth Closed

British Culture Secretary Maria Miller has said that giving extra funding to protest groups such as Stonewall was “common sense”(???) so they could make their point at the Olympics. Ms Miller said in an interview: “It’s very important indeed we use the opportunity of the Winter Games to underline the importance of treating people fairly, which is at the heart of the Olympic charter and important to the Olympic movement, We are already putting in place additional support to make sure that gay rights organisations have got the sort of support and expertise that I think can make a real difference with the work they are doing on the ground in Russia.”

To Ms. Miller I have only one thing to say. What goes on in Russia is no business of ours! Russia has never been, nor will ever be a British colony, so we should keep our noses out of other people’s business.

He Is Not Amused!

He Is Not Amused!

Personally, I applaud Mr. Putin’s stance and wish we had done the same, but that will never happen in such a politically correct and human rights minded country like ours. At least the Russians will not be subjected to disgusting ‘Gay’ Parades and all the rest of their propaganda. At least their children will not be educated to think homosexuality is ‘normal’ like ours.

Back to the point, I fail to see what motive the government has for such a radical action. I have no doubt Putin will shrug it off and ensure that anyone making propaganda for the deviants will immediately be arrested and imprisoned, and so they should be. Europe has seen too much of this ‘Human Rights’ crap, and while many of the basic rules are sensible and necessary, they have been manipulated by unscrupulous people (and lawyers) for their own ends.

Gay Parade - Disgusting!

Gay Parade – Disgusting!

We have reached a stage where we cannot deport immigrant criminals or even send them to prison. We have to release criminals early just to satisfy these messed up laws.

Deviants are allowed to marry, and even adopt children before the psychological effects on a child being brought up in such a marriage have even been guessed at. They are allowed to flaunt their deviousness in obscene parades but still, they have their ‘human rights’.

Cameron and his cronies have to learn that, in my view, these two decisions in particular will not go down well with the British public. All he is doing now is drive voters into the UKIP camp.

British Jihadists – The Hidden Menace

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, England, Europe, Immigrants, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, News, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 23/01/2014 by floroy1942

Judging by the latest news, people in Europe are heading for a very turbulent time in the not too distant future. It has come to light that hundreds of Muslim youth are being persuaded to go and fight in Syria, often by clerics in the mosques. Most go because they feel it is their duty to protect fellow Muslims, but in fact they are being brainwashed by hard-line terrorists into becoming suicide bombers.

Abu Hamza - The Evil One

Abu Hamza – The Evil One

Between 1997 and 2004 when he was arrested, Abu Hamza radicalized very many young Muslims into joining al Quada, some even paid £500 for their visa and air ticket. Many can be forgiven for thinking that this vile trade in impressionable Muslim youth stopped when Hamsa was arrested, but it didn’t, for today its even worse.

The fact is that today, 500 young British Muslims are currently being trained by al Quada affiliates like ISIS in Syria. They are being taught how to make a suicide vest and car bomb, with instructions to put this knowledge to good use when they return home.  Some 50 have already returned to Britain after receiving this training. If al Quada has its way Britain, and France in particular, will be on the receiving end of a great many car bomb and suicide attacks, perhaps this year.

This information comes from a defector from ISIS who became disillusioned with what was going on.  Like many of his compatriots he joined the cause to protect fellow Muslims from the Syrian Regime but was quickly radicalized by the hard-liners who saw an opportunity.

Radicalized Foreigners

Radicalized Foreigners

When he met many of these young volunteers he said:  “They talked often about terrorist attacks. The foreigners were proud of 9/11 and the London bombings. The British, French and American mujahideen [holy warriors] in the room started talking about places that they wanted to bomb or explode themselves in Europe and the United States. Everyone named a target. The American said he dreamed of blowing up the White House.”

It is a fact that tens of thousands of young Muslims have joined the fight against the regime of Assad, most believing they were helping to protect fellow Muslims from a brutal dictator. They fight on the side of the jihadists, not the rebels, who until recently had the same goal, the overthrow of Assad but all that has changed. Now they are fighting both the rebels and the regime, trying to gain control of the country.

Are We To Experience This Soon?

Are We To Experience This Soon?

France has much the same problem. It is reported that two 15 year-old boys left France on-route to Syria via Turkey to fight with the Jihadists. According to the father, they had been brainwashed via the internet. Currently it is estimated that between 1,500 and 2,000 young Muslims have left France and Belgium to fight alongside ISIS. The big question is, how many of them will return with the intention of starting a wave of bombings.

There can be little doubt this is a serious problem that needs to be handled carefully. Many will instantly say: “Don’t let them back in the country!” and that would indeed be a simple solution, but…..there is always a but, it will be hard to prove they have even been to Syria. Currently they are travelling there through Turkey where the militants have a means of getting them over the border without passport checks.

On The Streets Of Europe?

On The Streets Of Europe?

Both the British MI5 and the police have their work cut out to nip this problem in the bud, and the chances are they will not always be successful. Andrew Parker, the Director General of MI5, is reported as saying,  “For the future, there is good reason to be concerned about Syria. A growing proportion of our casework now has some link to Syria, mostly concerning individuals from the UK who have travelled to fight there or who aspire to do so.”

Richard Walton, who leads Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command said,  “I don’t think the public realises the seriousness of the problem. The penny hasn’t dropped. But Syria is a game-changer. We are seeing it every day. You have hundreds of people going to Syria, and if they don’t get killed they get radicalized.”

Suicide Bomber Training

Suicide Bomber Training

There can be little doubt that al Quada and its affiliates have opened a new chapter in the war against the West, and it remains to be seen how successful they will be. Whichever way you look at it, there appear to be very dangerous times ahead.

Time To Stop This ‘Racist’ Madness

Posted in Britain, England, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Modern World, News, Political Correctness, Politics, UK with tags , , , on 19/01/2014 by floroy1942

The racist crowd have finally reached a new high in their campaign. In Sweden they have forced a popular manufacturer to stop selling certain bags of sweets because they contain liquorice made to look like ethnic masks or facial representations resembling primitive African, Asian or Native American art. Are these people barmy or what?

Had They Been White No-one Would Have Said A Word!

It seems these nutters, I can think of no other word for them right now, have finally fallen off their trolley! Sweden is normally considered a quiet placid country where they bother no-one, and the country is seldom heard of in the news. It seems however that many people claimed on the internet that the sweets in question were racist, and that forced the boss of Haribo Sweden to remove the ‘offending’ articles from production. When questioned by reporters, the head of Haribo Sweden Ola Dagliden told AFP, “We decided that we could keep the product while removing the parts that certain consumers found offensive,”

Pretty soon I can see liquorice being totally banned just because its a black substance. Perhaps we should also ban the use of coal, tar for the roads, black plastic and paint just because of their colour!

Did This Turn Our Children Into Rampant Racists?

If this had happened in the UK I could well believe it because we have more than our share of idiots. Years ago they were successful in getting the children’s nursery rhyme ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ banned for being offensive. How on earth did they reach that conclusion? Were they perhaps afraid that a nursery rhyme about black sheep would turn our small children into hardened racists?

The Robertson’s Golly

In 2002 they also forced a well-known jam manufacturer (Robertson’s) to remove the small golliwog that adorned their jars for 150 years. Obviously they were afraid that anyone using Robertson’s jam would immediately start calling all coloured people ‘Golliwog’. Too stupid for words.

Thanks to the traitor Tony Blair and his bunch of crooks who introduced these racist laws, it seems we can be arrested for even mentioning the world black in any pretext! Maybe they would be happier if the word was eradicated from the English language completely.

BLACK! BLACK! BLACK! There I’ve said it! Now I suppose there is an international arrest warrant out for me!

Is That Black Oil – You Raving Racist!

I find it stupid for governments to be pandering to these extremely narrow-minded and dumb people. They jumped on Blair’s bandwagon without realising that the only reason for the law was to stifle criticism of his open border policy, and the hordes of immigrants that took advantage of it. Blair may be the biggest asshole in the history of Britain but he was cunning.

Anyway, back to the main theme. I find it hard to grasp how ordinary people can be taken in by such stupidity as to call a black coloured sweet intended for children racist. Are they saying that all black people are like sweets? Hmmmm! I shall have to think on that one.

On the other side, why do black, er sorry, coloured people not shout racist when they see white sweets? I have seen them eat white sweets and chocolate and not a word is said except “That’s nice”.

I think its time to gather up all these twisted individuals and dump them on a small island in the Pacific where they can shout ‘Racist’ to their hearts content without upsetting anyone. By the way, I was referring to black paint earlier!

They Are Coming To Get Me!

They Are Coming To Get Me!

Oh dear, I just heard a loud knocking on our front door. I think it might be the police.

OK, I surrender! I did as a child repeat the nursery rhyme, and eat some liquorice, and later ate sandwiches with Robertson’s jam! Please don’t shoot me!

Have a nice day Y’all!

It’s Time For The Slaughter To Stop!

Posted in America, Britain, Environment, Europe, Modern World, News, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 17/01/2014 by floroy1942

The ElephantThe past forty years have seen the increasing decimation of many major animal species on the planet, mainly in Africa and India. For years poachers have killed elephants, rhinoceros, lions and tigers for profit, until we have reached the stage where many are seriously endangered. At current estimates many of these proud animals will be extinct and only a memory within ten years, for the ruthless killing escalates every year.

Among the most published species, the elephant and the rhinoceros are most in danger with tigers coming in as a close second. Why are these animals hunted?

Removing The Tusks With An Axe

The main trade in ivory is to countries like China where the horns of elephants are made into jewelry, utensils, trinkets and religious figurines. Ivory sells at $1,000 a pound.

The Tortured Animal Is Often Still Alive After The Horns Are Removed

Rhino horn is used in the making of medicines in China and Vietnam where misguided people believe it will cure impotence, cancer, fever, and even a hangover. This is preposterous, for their is no medical evidence to suggest that any of this is true. Year on year the demand for this ‘medicine’ is rising.  Rhino horn sells for $30,000 per pound and is much more valuable than gold. According to government sources 1,004 animals were killed for their horn, a 50% increase over the last year alone.

Its A Wonder There Any Tigers Left In India

Tigers are hunted not only for their skins, but also their bones and internal organs which are believed by some to have medicinal properties. None of which is true. Even zebra’s are endangered because some people like to have a zebra skin rug on the floor of their home.

Lions Hunt Where They Can

The story is a little different for the African lion. Their normal hunting grounds have been lost to the invasion of man, and now, due to the loss of their natural food sources they are forced to prey on cattle, and are therefore being killed by farmers who wish to protect them.

Gorilla Pet

Poachers have even begun stealing the babies of gorilla’s to sell on the black market. An infant gorilla will fetch up to $40,000. I have to ask, what sort of sick individual thinks owning a pet gorilla is ‘cool’. The taking of the young gorilla’s can have no other end but the extinction of the whole species.

Proud Owners Of Dead Zebra Skins?

The numbers are shocking when you consider that the black rhino population of Africa has dropped by 97.6% since 1960. Of the once great herds of Grevy’s Zebra that roamed the plains of Africa, now only 2,000 remain. In the mountainous regions of Africa there exist only 900 gorilla’s, and in seven African countries the lion is extinct. On top of all this, it is estimated that at current rates, the elephant and rhino will be no more than a memory in Africa within ten years.

For Use Against Elephants And Rhino’s?

Apart from the opportunist, most illegal killing is carried out by organised crime syndicates that are very well organised, and make full use of the latest technology. Every weapon, from an AK47 to grenade launchers is used to kill the animals, inflicting terrible pain and suffering. There is no such thing as a quick or merciful killing in this business. The syndicates use helicopters and even night vision goggles to track down the animals they slaughter. The people who do the actual hunting and killing receive maybe a few dollars for each animal, and the bulk of the money goes to those at the top. They have no conscience and think only of getting rich.

There are many other species on the planet in severe danger of extinction and this does not bode well for the future. The shameful greed of man is slowly killing this precious Earth on which we live. All in the name of greed.

New High’s In The Failure Of British Justice

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, European Union, Human Rights, Justice, Police, Prison, UK with tags , , , , on 10/01/2014 by floroy1942

For years now people have complained about the failures of British justice. Today it became known that thousands of repeat offenders got only the proverbial ‘slap on the wrist’. It seems the whole justice system is totally incapable of handing down proper sentences on criminals any more.

The Community Service Farce

One case in particular was highlighted by the press where a man with 300 previous convictions to his name still managed to avoid being sent to jail. It just about beggars belief, and makes you wonder why we don’t just sack all the judges and save the country a lot of tax payers money!

Mind you, he was not the only one. Around 76,802 people found guilty of a crime, all with at least six previous offences, escaped jail at the hands of our ‘Justice’ System. That figure includes 36,028 with 15 or more previous offences, and 16,232 with 25 or more convictions who all escaped being sent to jail. These figures have been supplied by the campaign group the Centre for Crime Prevention.

Well, I have to say that whatever system the politicians and their judgeships  have in place at the moment, it just ain’t working.

With the rapidly climbing crime rate, and this includes murder, it rapidly becomes clear that decisive action is required by the government.

Time To Get A Suntan?

This hypocrisy of  ‘prisoners rights’ being put before the rights of the victims and their families has to stop. To send a convicted murderer away for ‘Life’ and let him out after three or five years is dis-honouring the very word justice. To allow people with many previous convictions to get away  with their crimes will only spur them on to continue. Such is the state of our justice system that many have become career criminals, knowing they have nothing to fear from the law. Their victims are cast aside like so much trash because we must be humane when punishing our criminals.

All The Comforts Of Home

Of course the European Court of Human Rights has an awful lot to answer for in this area with their meddling. They put the rights of criminals above their victims, even in cases of murder. When jailed, criminals must be molly-coddled and given all the comforts of home. It is essential they have their pool tables, game systems and televisions for they must have a quality of life equivalent to you and I. They do no work but lounge around all day and generally live the life of Reilly, certainly better than you or I.

Whatever the prison system does, it most certainly does not act as a deterrent against crime any more. For the majority of criminals its just a short holiday at the tax payers expense before they go out and continue what they were doing before.

Pool Anyone? When Did You Last Get The Chance?

Much as I hate to say it, it may well be time for Britain to thumb its nose at the EU, for that is the only way we will get back any form of real justice. We need to go back to the times when prison was something to be feared by all law-breakers.

You’ve Been Mugged!

Only with punishments to fit the crime will we ever be free of daily muggings, robberies and murders. Only then will people be able to walk the streets without fear, especially at night. Only then will people feel safe in their own homes. Street gangs that terrorize communities, openly sell drugs on the streets, and do literally as they please without fear of the law will disappear when a few of them have been banged up for a period of hard labour.

It all comes back to the same answer, if the deterrent is not there things will never change. It will only get worse.

The Unfathomable Stupidity Of People

Posted in Atlantic, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Environment, Insanity, News, Parenting, UK with tags , , on 06/01/2014 by floroy1942

Everyone can do stupid things, but the depths to which some people will go is unbelievable. During the past week several people have disappeared while walking along the sea front of UK coastal towns during the storms, their curiosity overcoming their common sense. Many have still not been found.

People With A Death Wish?

People With A Death Wish?

The Meteorological Office have warned people that waves as high as eight metres (27ft) are hitting the coastline, but still people want to see them up close.

Some irresponsible parents have even taken small children to the promenade only to be washed from the sea wall when waves hit, risking them being swept into the raging sea.

This could have cost his children their lives.

This could have cost his children their lives.

It just goes to show that God can give people brains, but he cannot force their use.

Iraq – The Lost Cause

The Fall Of Saddam

The Fall Of Saddam

 

When the invasion of Iraq took place in 2003, it was hoped that after the forced removal of Saddam Hussein from power the country would settle down and become a democratic nation. With the fight against Saddam’s forces won, the counter-insurgency war began against al Quada and other affiliated terrorist groups. Now, eleven years on, it looks like the terrorists will eventually gain control of the whole country.

It was reported today that al Quada now controls the cities of Fallujah and most of Ramadi west of Baghdad, and in my view it will not be long before they control the whole country. A similar scenario is being played out in Afghanistan where the Taliban are pushing forward and making gains. It is clear to me that once the last foreign troops leave they will once again control the whole country.

If these two groups are successful, it will mean two Islamic states totally controlled by terrorists, and will set in motion something that moves with the power of a steamroller.  It should be clear to any intelligent mind that once they have total control of these two countries, they will set their sights on others.

Scene Of A Vicious Attack By Insurgents

Scene Of A Vicious Attack By Insurgents

 

Africa and many Far Eastern nations are already reeling from attacks and unrest caused by militant groups affiliated to al Quada and it has been going on for several years without an end in sight. From the terrorists point of view, they see the opportunity to eventually control these countries by continually rousing the Muslim population and thereby causing mayhem and death against the various governments, in much the same way as they have done in Egypt and Tunisia among others. After the bitter fighting in Egypt and the open elections for example, it was thought that the country would settle down with a stable government elected by the people. But what happened, the Islamists got into power and began turning the secular state into an Islamic one. This did not go well with the population.

Demonstration Against Islamist P.M. Morsi.

Muslims are well known to be the easiest to whip up into a mob where a false word here an there will inflame their passion, and as the word spreads, cause a rioting in the streets and death. This agitation is the current tactic of groups like al Quada, who have changed from the direct confrontation like 9/11 to the more subtle ways of infiltration and creating unrest. The sad thing is, it works very well for them, as evidenced by all the African and Far Eastern nations that are currently undergoing strife in their countries. Kenya has a huge majority of Christians but this has not stopped the insurgents from creating mayhem and wanting to turn the country into an Islamic state.

Insurgent Shooting Captured Assad Troops.

Syria is another prime example where the trouble started with a general uprising against the rule of Assad, but was swiftly hi-jacked by the insurgent groups who first started fighting on the side of the rebels but have now turned against them too and control large areas.

In my view, there can be little doubt that Islam is on the march and we had better all look to our own futures as more and more Muslim immigrants invade our countries. In Britain in particular, their birthrate is nine times that of the indigenous population which means that in ten or twenty years they will outnumber us by a very big margin.

I leave you to imagine what that will mean for future generations of the British people.

Ms. Atkinson – Another Raving Nutter!

Another Stupid Do-Gooder

Another Stupid Do-Gooder

The Children’s Commissioner for England, Maggie Atkinson, has said that the smacking of children in all its forms should be banned in the United Kingdom. Is this woman a raving nutter or what. Parents have little choice anyway over what punishment they can hand out to recalcitrant children, which is clearly evident in the way children behave these days.

Well, Verbal Discipline Sure Didn't Work!

Well, Verbal Discipline Sure Didn’t Work!

Tell your child to do, or not do, something these days and you are more than likely to get a mouthful of abuse back or be completely ignored. Children realize at a very early age what they can get away with, and any parent who wishes to bring up their children in a proper way, i.e., teach them respect and honesty, can do very little to enforce life’s rules on a child.

Stings A Little But Very Effective.

Stings A Little But Very Effective.

Currently, you are allowed to smack, but only if you do not break the skin or cause a bruise. Many will say this is enough, and they may be right up to a point, at least with any but the most hardened cases. Look around you as you walk the streets of any town and see the gangs of youths standing around on street corners.

Remember the Bulger Murder?

Remember the Bulger Murder?

Britain has the highest rate of youth crime in Europe and ‘it ain’t going away’ as they say. Look back over the past ten years or so and think of how many murders alone have been committed by children under eighteen. Some of them are as young as seven or eight, with many being eleven to thirteen. Now think a little further and ask yourself, with which generation did this unruly behaviour begin?

They Way They Want It Done?

They Way They Want It Done?

It began with the generation that grew up during the smacking ban when all the country’s do-gooders (many without children) jumped on the bandwagon and started proclaiming that smacking children is wrong. These idiots did their best to remove any form of chastisement to children, but guess what, children learn faster than you think.

Ever Felt Like This Under The ,No Smacking, Rules?

Ever Felt Like This Under The ‘No Smacking’ Rules?

Eventually some form of common sense did arise from this stupidity and the current no bruising or broken skin law was passed. It at least allowed some form of discipline with children. When you think of it, how else do children learn except from their parents. Today of course we suffer more and more from parents who don’t give a damn anyway, and allow their offspring to do as they please so long as they are not disturbed.

Yes Sir, My Dad Hit Me!

Yes Sir, My Dad Hit Me!

Now this stupid woman comes along and says we should ban all forms of effective punishment for children. No smacking – Ever! She also advocates criminal prosecution for parents who break this law. I can see this leading to many a disgruntled child turning up at the police station falsely claiming to have been struck by a parent just as a means of get back at them for something: “If you don’t let me go to the party I’ll tell the cops you hit me!”

I'm Not Sure Ms. Atkinson Would Have Success With The London Street Gangs!

I’m Not Sure Ms. Atkinson Would Have Success With The London Street Gangs!

So what are parents to do, those that care at least? Well, for a start I would drop this stupid woman off at some London East End housing estate one evening and leave her to the tender mercies of the local yobbo’s for a day, and then see what she thinks of disciplining children. That is always presuming she comes out alive and sane that is. Ms, Atkinson shouts loud and clear that she used to be a teacher and “never having had an issue where I’d need to use physical punishment”.

Classroom violence in the USA.

Classroom Violence - Not Always Against Teachers.

Classroom Violence – Not Always Against Teachers.

I guess that must have been a long time ago, for nowadays teachers are often threatened, and do suffer physical violence from pupils in school. A report I read last year indicated that as many as fifty percent of teachers had at some time or other been threatened with harm. Food for thought Ms, Atkinson?

Laudable Goals, But Don't Allow The Children To Rule!

Laudable Goals, But Don’t Allow The Children To Rule!

As you would expect, the NSPCC jumped on the bandwagon saying: evidence is building that smacking is “ineffective and harmful to children”. Ah well, then I guess generations of parents must have been wrong to give their children a wallop to teach them how to behave and make them do as they are told. Well, I will say this, I was brought up with the old methods and it never did me any harm.

Old Style Discipline

Old Style Discipline

It did teach me to respect my elders (not that there are many of them around now) and it taught me to be truthful and honest in all I do and say. It has never crossed my mind to pull a knife on someone I disagree with, or to steal from shops or vulnerable people like old age pensioners. I never felt the urge to hang around on street corners wearing a hood that all but covered my face, and with my mates scare the living daylights out of anyone passing by just for fun.

Good Luck With That Method!

Good Luck With That Method!

The NSPCC is also quoted as saying: “There are more positive ways to discipline children and a clear message that hitting anyone is not right would benefit all of society,” All I can say smarty pants is: Why don’t you come and tell us what these ‘more effective’ measures are! Perhaps this idiot means that children will automatically respond well to you telling them to stop whatever it is they are doing wrong. We should perhaps sit them down and explain in simple words why what they are doing is wrong and plead with them not to do it again. Maybe we should make our thirteen year-olds stand in the corner for an hour as punishment, or tell our fifteen-year-olds to write a hundred lines. Ha! I would love to see the NSPCC try that out on a bunch of kids from a housing estate. It is doubtful any such idiot would see another day.

Nice To Have Well Behaved Kids

Nice To Have Well Behaved Kids

Naturally, there are many children who come from good homes and learn the necessities of life without severe punishment, but for every one of them there is perhaps five who come from under-privileged homes and don’t give a toss for any form of discipline.

Child Abuse - It has To Stop

Child Abuse – It has To Stop

One point I do have to make clear is that I do not condone in any shape or form brutality towards children. I had enough of that in my own childhood, but I do know that it is possible to chastise a child effectively without brutality. The important thing is to start as soon as they are old enough to understand. You don’t smack a fourteen-year-old, but a mild smack when required on the leg of a one-year-old would make that unnecessary, because later the child would already have learnt right from wrong.

In conclusion, I am happy to say that it seems no-one is taking much notice of this crazy woman’s ravings, for a government spokesperson said: “While ministers did not condone violence towards children, they did not wish to criminalize parents for issuing a mild smack”.

Chris Grayling

Chris Grayling

Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said some time ago that he smacked his own children when they were young and defended the right of parents to smack their children. The Conservative minister, who has two grown-up children, said, “You chastise children when they are bad, as my parents did me. I’m not opposed to smacking. It is to be used occasionally. Sometimes it sends a message – but I don’t hanker for the days when children were severely beaten at school.”

On that subject I will say that ‘six of the best’ across the buttocks or hand made darned sure you never made the same mistake again, but that is for school only.

Happy New YearEnjoy 2014! May your children always listen when you tell them off, and grow up to be fine upstanding citizens of the future.
