I think the world is going mad, for we have so many acid attacks in Britain and its not going to end. Teens have been throwing acid in the face of young women, but why? A law has been introduced to make the selling of acid to young people, but it is not having an effect for they get it at home. Why would teens and young people throw acid into the face of someone they hardly know? It has become normal for young people to do this, but why?

Young people have been scarred for life by these idiots who don’t care what the effects are. If they suffered the same they would regret it for the rest of their lives. Some people have horrible scars on their face caused by these attacks, and they will live with it for the rest of their lives.

Who in their right mind would do such a thing, scarring someone for forever. It just doesn’t make sense. These animals should be locked up for a very long time but the trouble is, the police can’t do much about it. They don’t know who has done this horrible thing, and to track them down is difficult.

Britain is going crazy and it has to stop. But how will it end? the police must make a move to stop these attacks and put the perpetrators away for a long time for it will only get worse. I wonder how this got started and who started it. Young women are disfigured for life but what makes the attackers do this. Do they have something against them to make them do this or is it just a prank to disfigure someone for life.

Some can recover, but not all, especially if they are attacked in the face. If they are, some will go blind for the acid gets into the their eyes. It is a scandalous form of torture that many will live with for the rest of their lives. Disfigurement on the face will have a heartbreaking effect on the victims.

Some can have plastic surgery to remove the disfigurement but not all. They will have to live the rest of their lives with a face that is burned and horribly disfigured, and for what? The acid burns the skin and many do not have water nearby to wash away this horrible contamination.

I wish I knew what made youngsters do this, for it is a horrible way to attack someone. Every day we hear of people being attacked with acid and the police should be doing something about it. Stop and search of young teens should be introduced to find those that are holding acid in their clothes, and they should arrest them immediately. It is the only way to stop this barbarism.

What A Farce

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, News with tags , , , , on 06/09/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is really going bonkers (and I put that politely). A Priory School in Lewes has gone so far as to ban skirts in order to introduce a more gender-neutral uniform.

The headmaster said, “Transgender students are only a small aspect of why we have made this decision, there are five or six trans-students currently at the school.” So the whole school has to wear a transgender uniform to satisfy these five or six queers?

I have a long time given up on Britain as a place to live, for the whole country is going mad. How long before other schools join the ‘transgender revolution’? It is sickening to me that such rules have to be passed to satisfy these people.

Several parents have criticised the move – especially since they weren’t consulted before the big change. One mother with a daughter at the school said that her daughter wasn’t happy with having her gender taken away. “My daughter said she has got a gender and it’s female so being gender neutral when she has got a gender is a big deal for her, as she’s proud to be a girl,” she commented.

“The hypocrisy is what gets me the most,” said another mum. “If girls dressing differently than boys is now to be considered sexist, then it is equally sexist to have female teachers wearing skirts and not wearing ties.” “If they want this, they must live the values they force on others and go fully gender free. The school is creating a hostile environment for girls by treating their views with contempt.”

Chief executive Susie Green said “adding gender neutral uniforms is one of many simple ways that schools can help any pupils struggling with their gender in any way. Schools need to take a clear line to accept and embrace all diversity, no matter how small the numbers affected.”

I find this most disturbing,  and wonder what the U.K. will be like in ten years time. It makes me wonder if Britain is going mad! What is our world going to look like in ten or twenty years time.

Boys And Girls Or “Genderqueer”?

"Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer"

“Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And Girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer”

I have just read the biggest load of tripe I have come across in years. The U.K. government-funded ‘Educate and Celebrate’ Organisation has introduced a new rule where schools cannot call children as young as seven a boy or a girl as part of a major diversity drive.

It suggests terms such as ‘genderqueer’ and ‘panromantic’ – used to describe someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities. A book about to be released is described by the publishers as “the first book to explain medical transitioning for children aged seven and above”. 

Ellie Barnes, Educate and Celebrate founder, described the book as ‘much needed’. She said: “Not everyone identifies as male or female – that is fact.” Backed by Ofsted, the publishers have sent out the book called ‘Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?’ which features a fictional story about a 12-year-old boy transitioning from male to female. This book has been sent to 120 ‘best practice’ schools and suggests new terms to address young children.

Former Conservative Party chairman Lord Tebbit, told a Sunday newspaper: “I think it is damaging to children to introduce uncertainty into their minds.” I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.

I have to ask, where do these people come from? The world has changed to such an extent that people can come up with the most ludicrous ideas and they get accepted by the rank and file. Is the world going crazy or what?

People who come up with these stupid ideas belong in a mental asylum, plain and simple! Do they mean to make all future generations transgender or what? The mind boggles!

Would You Call Your Child Pilot Inspektor?

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Europe, Insanity, Modern World, News, Parenting with tags , , , , on 30/08/2016 by floroy1942

It seems we are heading into the realms of dumb, sheer stupidity when it comes to naming our children these days. I just read an article where some of the most ridiculous names ever invented have been given to celebrity children. Who are these people trying to kid?

Jason Lee With Pilot Inspektor

There are better ways of getting your name in the papers than giving your children such idiotic names. Some of them may sound cute when the child is still a baby, but what happens when they get to schools age, of even worse, when they are adults. I would be utterly ashamed to have to tell, for example, the tax man or a prospective boss that my name is Pilot Inspektor. Have people totally lost it these days?

Here are some of the other names that celebrities have given their children:

I can just imagine some of these poor kids introducing themselves to their new friends, “Hi my name is Rocket Zot Worthington but you can call me Rocket!”, an utterance that would be swiftly followed by howls of laughter.

I have no idea how this stupid craze started, but I am sure the kids will regret it when they get older. They have my sympathy.

Pakistan – The Devil’s Playground

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Equality, Justice, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 05/07/2016 by floroy1942

I was shocked to read in today’s news about the brutal death of a young girl who married against her mother’s wishes, and was brutally murdered because of it. The girl, eighteen-year-old Zeenat was choked by her mother, and while still alive, burnt to death with kerosene. After this despicable act her mother, Parveen Rafiq screamed from her rooftop, “I have killed my daughter. I have saved my honor. She will never shame me again.”

A Victim Of Sharia

A Victim Of Sharia

The whole saga began when Zeenat decided to marry her childhood sweetheart and not a man whom her mother had chosen in a so-called ‘arranged marriage’, a member of their own social caste, the Rajput. Zeenat had her heart set on a childhood friend, a 20-year-old motorcycle mechanic named Hassan Khan who lived nearby in their crowded Lahore shantytown. Her death on June 8 was the latest in a series of increasingly gruesome “honour” killings in Pakistan, which has one of the highest rates of such killings in the world.

After they married Zeenat went to live with Hassan and his family, but her mother and uncle came to the door many times begging her to come home at least for a few days because they forgave her. Her mother wanted to arrange a proper marriage for the pair to dispel the idea held by the neighbours that she had eloped. She eventually agreed, but on the fourth day was killed by her mother in the aforementioned despicable way.

Neighbours outside Rafiq’s home all agreed that the mother was driven to kill Zeenat, and she should go free. “Daughters are duty-bound to maintain the honor of the family,” said Muneeba Bibi. “It’s better to have no children than to have a daughter who brings you shame. Zeenat’s killing was a good lesson for all the girls here to protect the family honour,” she said.

Zeenat’s mother has been arrested as police and prosecutors found a way around the forgiveness loophole. Rafiq and one of her sons suspected of helping in Zeenat’s killing have been detained and face charges under the anti-terrorism law, which defines any act that causes general panic as terrorism. We will have to wait and see how that goes in court.

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

In another such case a mother in Abbottabad slit the throat of her pregnant 22 year-old daughter who married a man she loved. The victim’s girlfriend who helped her, was systematically tortured and then injected with poison. After that she was strapped into the seat of a car which was then set alight. She died in absolute agony.  The council of local elders, ordered her killing as a message to others.

Last year, 1,096 women and 88 men were killed in “honour” crimes in Pakistan, according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. The fact of the matter is that the numbers are most likely far higher, as not all get reported. Those who kill for “honour” are almost never punished in Pakistan.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

This country has the highest rate of honour crimes in the world, and the sad thing is, the perpetrators of these killings are very seldom punished for their crimes. It’s all to do with the savage Sharia Law that allows such actions. The law, based on Islamic Shariah allows the family of a victim to forgive a killer, and in these cases the killers are almost always family. So other relatives give their forgiveness, unwilling to see loved ones jailed.

It is a fact that more than 70 percent of Pakistan’s 180 million people are under 30, and many are challenging these traditions to an unprecedented degree. Marvi Sermid, a women’s rights activist said, “The old order of misogyny and extremism is falling apart, is really crumbling.” The campaign has been assisted by women going to school and working outside the home, and social media has helped women raise their voices. 

Message Of The Young

Message Of The Young

The government proposed a law aimed at protecting women against violence, but in May the council put forward an alternative allowing men to “lightly beat” their wives. On TV talk shows, guests denounced the council as misogynist and out of touch. Some lawmakers called for it to be disbanded.

I have a feeling that this argument will rage on for a very long time, for although the younger generation in Pakistan seem to be more enlightened, the old are not, and stick fast to their ancient traditions.

To me these people are still living in the stone age and it all has to do with the Muslim Sharia Law. It is not the same in all Muslim countries, but we still get to hear about stoning to death, the chopping off of a thief’s hand and hangings in the street.

By comparison I will not say that our western justice system is better, for many killers and thieves get ridiculously short sentences, and have an easy time of it in prison in many countries. But it is better than the sheer savagery of Sharia Law.

Will it ever change, I doubt it!

Breast Ironing – The Barbaric Torture Of Young Girls

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Health, Immigrants, News, Parenting, Torture with tags , , , , on 10/04/2016 by floroy1942

I have come to the conclusion that in many countries some people are still barbaric beyond description. It is unbelievable that in this day and age countries still hold on to torture as a way of life. I wrote some time ago about the genital mutilation of young girls by Muslim families, but now I discovered that there are other forms of torture that are traditional.

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

One of these is breast ironing which is prevalent in some African countries and is carried out by immigrants in Britain today. The general idea is to prevent the natural growth of breasts in young girls, and involves them having their breasts beaten, burnt and massaged in order to stop them developing.

The reason for this is to make young girls and women less attractive to the opposite sex so they can concentrate on school work. Really, of all the excuses I have ever heard this must be one of the most ridiculous.

One young woman said, “They put a spatula on the fire and then they press it on the breast, and yes, it hurts. Then it goes weak, it’s like melting, fat melting and you can feel the breast going back.” Once this is completed they often have their breasts bound tightly to prevent any further growth.

All this torture just so they can concentrate on their school lessons, and prevent them being attractive to young boys? What sort of animals are these people?

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Experts are of the opinion that such torture can lead to cysts, abscesses, and even breast cancer. Geraldine Yenwo, the founder of Came Women and Girls Development Organisation said, “A lot of them have inverted nipples, they’re not able to breastfeed their children. Emotionally and psychologically, your self-esteem is very badly affected. Physically, some of them have one large and one flattened breast.”

Conservative MP Jake Berry is requesting the government make such actions illegal, and so it should be. Those responsible for such acts should be locked away for a very long time, for this type of torture does not belong in the modern age, much the same as genital mutilation.

What Can Often Be The End Result

What Can Often Be The End Result

I know that there are many backward civilizations in the world, but to intentionally mutilate your children seems to me beyond bizarre, and it makes you wonder why this sort of tradition ever became ‘normal’ with some people.

Germany – And So It Begins!

Cologne New Year Celebrations

Cologne New Year Celebrations

It would appear from news stories that Germany has been shocked rigid by a wave of New Year attacks on women in various cities. I hate to say it, but I told you so!

All the assaults were carried out by men of Arab or African origin according to witnesses, in other words, newly arrived Muslim immigrants! City police chief Wolfgang Albers called it “a completely new dimension of crime”.

Cologne Station

Cologne Station

In Cologne alone eighty women reported that they had been attacked and sexually assaulted or mugged. These attacks were carried out by a group from around a thousand individuals who had been drinking heavily and were extremely aggressive according to witnesses. A policeman who was outside Cologne station during the New Year’s Eve trouble told the city’s Express news website that he had detained eight suspects. “They were all asylum seekers, carrying copies of their residence certificates,” he said.

The most serious assaults took place near Cologne Cathedral where several women were groped and one was actually raped. Similar incidents have also been reported in Hamburg and Stuttgart over the same period.

Merkel

Merkel – A Muslim’s Best Friend

What is disturbing for the authorities is that these attacks appear to have been planned, as large groups of men arrived and then separated into large gangs to carry out the assaults and robberies. Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker called the attacks ‘monstrous’. “We cannot allow this to become a lawless area,” she said, insisting that visitors could not come to the city fearing attack. In addition German Justice Minister Heiko Maas tweeted that “we won’t tolerate these abhorrent assaults on women – all those responsible must be brought to justice”.

Of particular worry to the police are the Carnival events when drunken street parties take place throughout Germany in the first week of February. The revellers will be out in every village, town and city, for Carnival Week is a much anticipated week-long party. The police are naturally expecting these same criminals to take full advantage of the occasion.

Germany will have to get used to the idea of rape, sexual assault and harassment of their women as an everyday occurrence, much the same as we have in Britain since the Muslims swarmed in under Tony Blair. Angela Merkel should have known of the very strict dress code forced on Muslim women by their men, and what their reaction would be when they saw European women, who by comparison are scantily dressed.

A Natural Target For Muslims

A Natural Target For Muslims

By inviting so many Muslim migrants into the country, Germany has opened up a huge ‘can of worms’ that will affect its daily life from here on in. In many places women will no longer feel safe on the streets, especially after dark. Young girls will begin to disappear as they are forced into prostitution after being snatched by Muslim sex gangs.

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/rape-capital-of-britain/

Oh yes! I can hear the cries of ‘Rubbish’ from here, but if you do not believe me then take a trip to Rotherham, Bradford, Leeds or Birmingham in Britain and you will see the truth. Many of these gangs are known to the police, but they are not allowed to do anything about it for fear of ‘upsetting the Muslims’.

The Muslim View Of Western Women

The Muslim View Of Western Women

What most western people do not comprehend is that rape and sexual assault on ‘infidel’ women and young girls is actually condoned by the Muslim Holy Book – The Qur’an! From this you should understand that the rape and abduction of a ‘non-believer’ is perfectly acceptable in the Muslim culture. If you don’t believe me then look it up.

While this is not a problem in Muslim lands because all are followers of Allah, it becomes a problem of supreme significance in western lands that do not follow Allah. This is what Germany has coming to it thanks to the mass migration of Muslims into the country.

Plus Size Models – Do Me A Favour!!!!!

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, England, Europe, Health, News, Teens, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 11/12/2015 by floroy1942
You Must Be Kidding

You Must Be Kidding

This new trend of plus size models is to me going way beyond what is acceptable. I have seen some of the photos of these creatures, and also read the report from a group of scientists who say that such a thing will encourage people to be obese. This I can quite believe.

Those who are promoting this craze are of the opinion that it will make fat people more acceptable, but I for one just don’t see it that way. I much prefer to see a woman with a perfect slim body, and I don’t mean skinny, walking down the catwalk than a fat one wobbling down it.

A Joke Surely!

A Joke Surely!

How could anyone in their right minds think that having fat women modelling their clothes will promote sales. I just don’t see it, do you?

Obesity in the western hemisphere has become a plague that has hit all countries, and it is abhorrent to say the least. When I was young 99% of girls and women were slim and they looked good, but since the seventies fat has taken over because people just don’t care what they look like. Sad to say it has become the norm, even with young children.

Modern Times - Sad Times

Modern Times – Sad Times

It distresses me to see young children of even 6 and 7 with large fat bellies and fat legs waddling along with their fat parents. Why oh why don’t the parents have more respect for their children who will suffer untold misery and pain when they grow up because their parents did not teach them properly.

People have complained about smokers over the last decade and they always highlighted how they are filling the hospitals unnecessarily and put a great strain on the NHS financial resources. What people today do not realize is that when an obese person gets to middle age or older, they will be the ones going to hospital several times a week for treatment.

The Future For Obese People

The Future For Obese People

What these obese people do not realize is they are going to suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol levels and cancer, and will by far outnumber those admitted for smoking related illnesses. In effect it means that hospitals will be much more overloaded than today.

For every fat child I see I blame the parents who have not brought up their children properly. They feed them rubbish food because they do not have time, or can’t be bothered to prepare a proper meal, and I know in Britain it’s often chips (French fries) with everything. Cheap processed food from the supermarket with little or no nutritional value at all, and then there is of course the regular trip down to McDonald’s or Burger King for a hamburger and chips. No-one today seems to know what good healthy food is any longer, so it’s no wonder we have obese people walking our streets everywhere.

Your Child?

Your Child?

Even when the kids are not eating they are slumped in a chair in the bedroom on the computer so they get little exercise. The parents just dump themselves in front of the T.V. when they are not at work, so again, little or no exercise. Even if they just pop down the road to the supermarket, which may be 500 yards away, they will go in  the car instead of walking. For the past thirty or so years we have changed our lifestyle to become a shadow of what we once were.

This Is What We Should See - An Inspiration

This Is What We Should See – An Inspiration

However, to have fashion houses now employing fat or obese models must surely be the icing on the cake for our times. I have to agree with the scientists who say that to have fat women on the catwalk will make many people think that to be obese is perfectly acceptable in today’s world and they should not worry about it. This I feel would be more than true among the youth and children of today.

Many young girls these days look at fashion shows and want to be slim like the models, and I have to say there is nothing wrong with that provided they are taught properly how to do it. It is time the youth of today learnt that to be obese is sickening in the extreme, and we got back to women having the beauty and shape of what they were intended to be. A slim woman will always be more successful in life than an obese one. I hope this post will be an inspiration to at least some people to do something about their excessive weight.

The UN Human Rights Committee Should Mind It’s Own Bloody Business

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Child Discipline, European Union, News, Parenting, Teen alcohol abuse, Teen Violence, Teens with tags , , , , on 25/07/2015 by floroy1942

I was angered yesterday when I read that the U.N. HRC is telling the British Government to ban all smacking of children as a form of discipline. The commission was ‘surprised’ to hear that corporal punishment had not already been banned in the country.

UNHRCThe report says,”The state party should take practical steps, including through legislative measures where appropriate, to put an end to corporal punishment in all settings, including the home, throughout (the) United Kingdom. It should encourage non-violent forms of discipline as alternatives to corporal punishment, and conduct public information campaigns to raise awareness about its harmful effects.”

Are these people living on the same planet as the rest of us? I would like to know what forms of ‘none violent’ punishments they think will work with todays British children.

So UNHRC! How Do You Handle This Little Devil?

So UNHRC! How Do You Handle This Little Devil?

In Britain these days if you tell a child not to do something they take no notice, or in many cases tell you to ‘F’ off! So what are you supposed to do in such a situation? Tie them to a chair and lecture them on good manners and doing as they are told? Don’t make me laugh! I rather think that many of the idiots who come out with this garbage don’t have any children themselves, or if they do, they are brought up by a Nanny because the parents are too busy pontificating to do it themselves.

It is a totally different scenario from when I was a child in the forties. Children in general were well-behaved, they were respectful, honest and did as they were told by their parents because they knew that if they didn’t they would get a smack. Very few got into trouble with the law, and if they did it was for silly things that kids do as a prank.

It is a sad fact that we currently have a ‘lost’ generation of teens and young people who really do not know where they fit in in society because they have not been brought up correctly. Very often, if you want to know where your child is today, go to their room and you will find them in front of the computer or on their smart phone trading nonsense with others on Facebook or the like.

Kids Playing In The 1950's

Kids Playing In The 1950’s

What happened to the days when young kids went out to play with others instead of just lounging around?

These days, everywhere you look you will see youth on their phone, walking down the street or at a table in a cafe. But, take away this essential apparatus and they wander like mindless sheep not knowing where to go or what to do. In our local shopping centre I have lost count of the number of people who have almost walked straight into me because their whole concentration was on texting someone on the phone.

 On The Booze Already?

Nine Or Ten Years Old On The Booze Already?

Today many of the teens and youngsters are totally out of control, depending on drugs and/or alcohol for enjoyment. Some are extremely violent, fight on the streets, steal anything they can, and kill without remorse, so you try chastising them with words!

The British crime rate for those under thirty is the highest anywhere in Europe, and this includes rape, robbery and murder! Never in the history of this country has there been so many brutal killings, murders and rapes every year, a few carried out by young children, and many by teenagers.

In One Ear And Out The Other

In One Ear And Out The Other

So why do you think this is? Could it be that we have not sat our children down often enough and given them a good talking to on discipline as the UNHRC suggests, or could it be that children have quickly become aware that we can do next to nothing against them if they do wrong because of the anti-smacking laws. You work it out!

You cannot get away from the fact that if you wish to have a well-behaved child who turns into a responsible and hard-working adult you need discipline at a very early age. You can tell a child a hundred times and they will take no notice, but one small slap on the behind or back of the leg and they get the idea immediately. This system has worked for centuries, but now suddenly its a No! No!

I freely admit that in the past there have been parents who have gone over the limit with chastisement and have been excessively cruel to their children, but that is not a good enough reason to ban it altogether. Every day there are car accidents – should we therefore ban all cars??? No of course not, common sense has to prevail. Wherever there are cases of child abuse go after the perpetrators but don’t ban all forms of discipline!

On The Times I had It At School, It Stung For A Short Time But NEVER Did Me Any Harm.

On The Times I Had It At School, It Stung For A Short Time But NEVER Did Me Any Harm.

During my childhood I had the cane from the Headmaster a couple of times, and my step-dad gave me the slipper across the backside a good few times for misdemeanors. It did me no harm, but taught me never to do it again.

Later in life when I brought up my own son and daughter I used proper discipline from very early on. In the beginning I found with my daughter for example that a very light slap on her leg and a stern look was enough to warn her not to do something. By the time she was three I never had the need to touch her. If I told her not to do something she didn’t because she knew I meant what I said. My son took a little longer, (boy’s will be boy’s) but with a few light slaps to the legs he did as he was told.

I am happy to say they both grew up to be exemplary adults, and never got into trouble or did drugs or alcohol.

My wife and I started with them very young and they quickly learned to do as they were told without fuss, and most importantly, without resorting to any violence. It is essential to start as soon as they are able to understand, but keep the punishments very mild. They will learn very quickly and then a warning look is all that is needed.

Heed The Message

Heed The Message

This business of sitting your child down in front of you and having a conversation with them about what they have done wrong is pure rubbish. There is only one system that makes the necessary impression on a child’s mind and that is a slap on the leg or behind. When they actually feel it the message goes home. Anything else is a waste of time.

I am however deeply against those who go too far with children. I believe that those who go beyond a mild slap should be punished to the full extent of the law. There is no excuse to brutalize children for whatever reason.

These namby pamby do-gooders need to know the value of proper discipline with children to ensure they grow up to be worthwhile members of society, and not clogging up our prison system.

Time For A Major Overhaul Of Britain’s Education System!

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, David Cameron, English Schools, Government, Immigrants, News, Primary Education, Teens with tags , , , , on 17/05/2015 by floroy1942

Once again we are shown how the education system in Britain is failing our youth. It’s no wonder we have so many unemployed young people when many school-leavers cannot read or write properly, as is so often reported. News out today indicates that in a grand survey of the education systems of 76 countries, Britain comes twentieth!

The Top Ten - The Far East Leads The Way.

The Top Ten – The Far East Leads The Way.

When the system in countries like Estonia (7), Poland (11), Vietnam (12) and Slovenia (18) are far better than our own its time to start making some major changes. It should not come as a surprise that countries in the Far East have the best records for education. The top European nation is Finland that comes sixth.

What happened? Education system changes by various governments have brought down the levels to such an extent that anyone leaving school today hasn’t got a cat in hell’s chance of finding meaningful employment.

A large majority of the teaching staff cannot answer a pupils question without referring to the lesson book because they do not know their subject properly. I hope the exceptions will forgive me!

On top of that, exams have become ridiculously easy thanks to Tony Blair and his government dumbing down the pass rates, and to top it all off, the English education system is bending over backwards to accommodate immigrants. For crying out loud, what is our government doing?

Muslims In British Schools - English! English! English!

Muslims In British Schools – English! English! English!

There should be one single curriculum for every school in the country as in the old days, and if an immigrant can’t speak English then he/she should be told to learn, not given classes in his/her language! There was a report some months ago about a school introducing translation computers that would translate what the teacher said, and questions from immigrants who did not speak the language. How ridiculous is that!

Wrong David! Very Wrong!

Wrong David! Very Wrong!

We should do away with all these silly ‘Free Schools’ begun by Cameron and his government, we should do away with all the Islamic schools and tell these people that if they want their children to learn things in Arabic they do it on their own time! This is Britain, and you either conform or get the hell out!

There should be one curriculum based on the 1950’s model for everybody, and one special school like the old grammar schools for those who pass the entrance exam (11 Plus) on their way to university. The government needs to get rid of all the computers in schools until the final year so that children learn to develop and use their minds, not just which button to push.

It is very sad for people of my generation to see the desperate decline of British values in today’s world. I am just glad that I have seen the Best of Britain and am not having to cope with the demoralized system we have today. If things keep going the way they are, in the future our once proud nation will become no better than a third world country in today’s fast-moving society.

After this rant I feel somewhat better!

Lethal Injection Or Firing Squad

An argument is currently raging over a Utah State vote to allow firing squad executions to replace lethal injections for criminals sentenced to death. It would seem that the lethal drugs used in American States are bought from European companies who are refusing to supply them because of European public pressure against the death penalty.

More Executions - Less Murders

More Executions – Less Murders

This I find intolerable. I do not believe any European company has the right to refuse orders on the grounds stated, but of course they are frightened for their profits if sales fall because of public indignation.

On top of this there have been two ‘botched’ executions that received a lot of attention in the press, and of course the Human Rights groups jumped on the bandwagon with gusto.

This has not yet become law in Utah for the State governor Gary Herbert is yet to sign it, but critics of this system have said that such a move would damage Utah’s reputation internationally but I fail to see this. There will most certainly be some righteous indignation in the beginning, but people will get used to it and justice will be done. The director of ‘Utahns for Alternatives to the Death Penalty’ Ralph Dellapiana said, “I think Utah took a giant step backward,”

I have always supported the death sentence as a just punishment for certain crimes, for I believe its abolition has led to the rampant murder rate we have experienced over the last forty years.

In Britain at least, the fact that a killer can be back on the streets after a few short years behind bars just does not register with the abolitionists, for they still consider this a just sentence.

It is clear that those who oppose the death penalty have never suffered as the victims of these killers have, for if they had they would perhaps not be so righteous. If their child had suffered multiple rape and torture at the hands of some sadist they would rapidly change their minds. It just goes to show how  hypocritical people can be today.

This whole farce of execution by humane methods has gotten totally out of hand because we have to ensure that the convict does not suffer in any way as he/she is put to death, but scant thought is given to the suffering of their victims. We have become so sympathetic to these people that it has become ridiculous.

Your Child?

Your Child?

Some killers have put their victims through excruciating pain, sometimes for hours or even days on end, and yet we must be humane when we put them to death for their crimes. I do not advocate unnecessary suffering for these people, but we should not have so much sympathy for them.

Firing Squad

Another point that comes to mind is that the cost of four bullets is far less than an expensive execution chamber and special drugs, so why do we do it? A bullet is also quicker because being hit by four of them means death is instantaneous with no suffering at all. This is too good for some of the maniacs out there!

It does surprise me that so many convicts in America can be in prison for ten years or longer before the sentence is carried out. In my view, when someone is sentenced to death for a crime there should be a set period of perhaps a year or eighteen months for further evidence and appeals, but after that the sentence should be carried out. To keep these people on ‘death row’ for such a long period is both wasteful and counter-productive.

There can be little doubt that the justice system in many western countries needs a big shake-up, for the ‘Do-Gooders’, ‘Politically Correct’ idiots and the self righteous groups like Amnesty International  have made a complete mess of the whole system. These days you can torture to death a hundred victims and still only get a prison sentence that will often not mean life in prison.

The prisons have become more like holiday camps these days where prisoners have been given all the comforts of home and time to enjoy them. The only thing they miss is their freedom of movement. This to me is not paying penance for a heinous crime!

I am sure this post will ruffle the feathers of many, but thank goodness we still have free speech and I can air my views. Er! I won’t be executed for this will I?

One Up For France

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Child Discipline, European Union, News, Parenting, Police, Teen alcohol abuse, Teen Violence, Teens with tags , , , , on 08/03/2015 by floroy1942

It would seem that France is not bowing to pressure from the rest of Europe on an important issue. It concerns a law that was accepted by the rest of Europe but not by the French, and for that I applaud them, for they at least are showing common sense.

images (1)You may be wondering what I am on about so I’ll tell you. This post concerns France’s refusal to enforce the ‘no-smacking’ rule for children that has cascaded across the world ever since Sweden first banned it in 1979. It is now forbidden to use ‘corporal punishment’ (i.e. smack a child) in 44 countries across the world, but to date France refuses to back it. I think they have the right attitude.

I still remember the old saying: “A smack in time stops a crime” and its as true today as it ever was. During their formative years children must learn right from wrong, but few do these days. If they do not, we end up with a mess like we have today, where teenagers and young adults are the cause of a good proportion of the crime in society today, run wild whenever they feel like it, drink excessively and take to drugs.

The Statistics Tell It All

The Statistics Tell It All

It is essential to teach from a very early age what is acceptable behaviour and what is not. If you begin early enough just a light tap on the hand or buttocks is enough to teach them right from wrong. Naturally, I do not advocate ‘beating’ a child for that is over the line.

With my own children I used the prescribed method from the time they learned to walk, and a light slap on the buttocks was necessary only two or three times and they learned quickly. When my wife or I said they should not do something they stopped immediately. In later years they both conformed to the norms of teenage and adult behaviour without a problem. I am happy to say they both turned out to be exemplary adults who never turned to drink or took drugs.

In contrast to this, a brother of my wife used the ‘no-smacking’ rule and his boy was such a nuisance that the family told him to leave the boy at home when he came to visit. He used the old and tried method on his second son and he was as good as gold.

When I look at the world today, I see Britain’s youth in particular, running wild on the streets especially at weekends when they all go out drinking to excess. There are fights in Disco’s and on the streets and the Police are constantly trying to stop them. We have children as young as nine or ten committing murders and many of today’s’ teenagers hang around on street corners in gangs looking for likely victims and even robbing convenience stores on the High Street. Teenage crime has gone through the roof since I was a child, in fact crime in general has escalated to levels unheard of in my time.

GoodI blame the ‘Anti-Smacking’ Laws that have all but made it impossible to teach a child discipline, honesty and respect when they need it most. This fact is most noticeable these days in the general attitude of many who think of themselves first before considering the needs of others.

It is true that in the old days some parents overstepped the limit when it came to child chastisement and were excessively brutal, but in general these were few and far between in my experience and certainly did not warrant a blanket law for everyone, but it happened and now we are stuck with the consequences.

So all things considered, I applaud the stance taken by France where normal child chastisement is allowed. I hope they continue with it and not bow to outside pressure from the E.U.
