                                             Immigrants Who Demonstrate

Europe is being flooded with migrants over the past few years, and it doesn’t stop. There are many migrants that are looking for a job in Europe, but many are in camps and the they grow bigger. Paris is overflowing with migrants and they are camping all over the place, the same goes for Germany, Italy and Spain and it has to stop.

Why don’t we stop them coming in? Spain is taking migrants from the sea and number is getting greater. We cannot allow the economic migrants to enter Europe, for they are not at war with the terrorists and they look for jobs.

Europe is getting overcrowded with immigrants and there are not enough jobs for the majority of them. They live off the handouts given by the governments, and they do not care. Most say they are from Syria but that is a lie, for many come from India, Pakistan and Africa. The real migrants from Syria are in need of help, but that is different.

There are so many economic migrants that outnumber the Syrians and that is a shambles. The government must track down these migrants and throw them out of Europe, and send them back to their country. We cannot look after them all, and they should be only the migrants from Syria.

If we accept these people they will live in Britain until the war is over. They cannot give citizenship in the U.K. for they will have to be sent back when the war is over. Already Britain is overcrowded with the economic migrants and this should not happen. We have to take care of our own people.

Britain is becoming a disaster zone with a shortage of money and jobs and it will get worse. When all these immigrants start making trouble in the U.K. it will be a powder keg and we will see riots in the streets. We already have a few riots by the teenagers and Muslims because they cannot find a job. We should give jobs to British people and not the migrants. For they are taking jobs away from the natives of England, for they do not want a huge salary and they do not want a salary as high as Englishman. Firms are happy to be given migrants work because they do not pay as high as the Englishman. This has to stop, for the country will in a uproar when in years to come.

Violence

Posted in America, Brazil, Britain, Demonstration, European Union, Government, Human Rights, Justice, News, Teen Violence with tags , , , , on 26/06/2018 by floroy1942

Saturday Night

Why is there is there violence all over the world? In every country it’s crazy, for all countries have attacks on humans and there is no stopping it. The police do their best to stop the violence but they are not having enough clout. In most countries there is attacks against the police and innocent civilians and I wonder if it will ever stop. The whole world seems to be going mad, for we have demonstrations on the southern continent of America and it will not stop. We have mass killings in Britain, especially in London and the police are not able to stop it. What is wrong with mankind these days.

When I was young there were very few killings, and perpetrators were hung by the neck. This has been outlawed through most of the world except America. But in America those on death row are getting less and less. We need to bring back hanging for killers, and the deaths of innocent people will get less. I hope when Britain leaves the EU that we will bring back hanging. Killers are sentenced to 10 years in Britain but are out in three to four years.

This will not stop the killings so long as this law is in place, and it will get worse. Violence on the streets is getting worse as the youth feel they can do this without a long sentence, even if the police catch them. Old folks are are robbed and killed even in their own homes, and not much is done about it. We need more police on the streets to stop this.

It is not only in England but all over the world as gangs do what they want. In Brazil and Venezuela there are mass demonstrations and people are getting killed. The police fire tear gas but this does not stop the violence. Since the 50’s we have become a more violent people and the governments are to blame. They rob the poor and middle class to make themselves richer. This has to stop.

In the future we will see anarchy as the violence gets bigger. We will see the governments all over the world ousted once and for all as the situation gets worse. I am glad I am 74 and not see this, for the young will have a difficult time in the future.

A New Year Is Coming

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, Environment, European Union, Health, Islamic Revolution, News, Nuclear Weapons, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 31/12/2017 by floroy1942

Our World

Tonight we celebrate the beginning of a new year, but what will it bring us? I don’t think there will be much change in the world as the wars will continue, and demonstrations will be as prevalent as this year. People are dissatisfied with their governments and the rules they are making so we will see demonstrations all across the world.

Governments will not change their plans to satisfy the people they rule, and there are many people in all countries who will not accept this. We are sure to find trouble in the new year as the demonstrations and wars continue unabated.

The whole world is a mess except in a few countries where the people put up with the plans the governments make. The war against ISIL and other rebel groups is far from over and the war will continue, but for how long? Some Muslims want to rule the world and it will not stop unless they wiped out.

The United Nations has done nothing to fight terrorism since the Korean War, and they should get involved by sending troops to wipe out these terror groups. It is the only way the world will get to be peaceful again. The trouble is they sit on there fat asses and do nothing. I had hoped that the new leader of the United Nations would at least do something against these terrorists, but he has done nothing.

What with the atmospheric pollution and the wars all over the globe, we are heading for major wars between nations and the end of mankind on this planet.

We have to do something about it or we will see total destruction of our home planet. Countries have to come together and sort out their differences before the whole world goes mad.

Unfortunately this is not likely to happen as there are too many differences between countries. There have been attempts at making peace in the past but these have all come to nothing, for there is still fighting between countries. Demonstrations have sprung up in the last twenty years or so because people are dissatisfied with the way the governments rule their countries. A prime example is Venezuela that is ruled by President Maduro. In this country he rules with an iron fist, and there are constant demonstrations against him. Its the same in other countries.

Another thing we that could cause the end of humanity on this planet is the pollution levels in our atmosphere. There are well over a million cars and lorries on our roads and each of these are causing the pollution to get worse. When will it end?

2

Pretty soon all of humanity will be going around wearing masks when they venture outside, just as in some Chinese and Middle East cities. The pollution levels are rising yearly with all the cars and lorries on our roads. We have to something about it!

It is expected that electric cars will replace petrol and diesel engines by 2040, but that may be too late. By then the pollution will have risen to such a state that the air will be full of poisonous gases, and people will get cancer and not be able to live a long life. The current generation does not think about the fate of our children and what they will face in the future. We have to start thinking about the future of humanity on this planet, and what the future of our children will be.

Catalonia

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, England, European Union, Government, News, Politics, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 23/12/2017 by floroy1942

Why should Catalonia want separation from Spain? It has been a part of Spain for hundreds of years and yet now it wants to separate from the rest of the country. The vote taken just a few days ago shows that a very small majority want to see the province separate from the rest of Spain and become an independent state. Why?

It is all down to the the exiled President Puigdemont who wants to rule the province on his own. Currently he is exiled in Brussels, but still he doesn’t give up fighting for an independent state in which he will be head of the government.

There are so many people in the world who want to have total control over countries, and this is not good for the people.  We see this everywhere, for there is fighting in many lands led by people who want to control their countries. So many people are addicted to power, and this is not good.

I believe the whole world is going mad, for we have so many people who lust for power. Puigdemont is one these people, and who knows what the outcome will be. Rajoy, the leader of Spain is steadfastly against the separation of Catalonia.

Most people in Catalonia really don’t know how things will turn out if they get independence, for it is certain that they will go downhill if they achieve this. The whole province relies on tourism as a means to make it wealthy, and if the numbers drop they will be in dire straits.

Catalonia is the richest province in Spain, and who knows what effect this will have on the rest of the country. Apart from tourism, which is the main source of income for the country, there is not much else that keeps the country afloat. If tourism were to end, and those who have bought houses and flats sell out and go somewhere else, there will not be much left of Spain, for it will be a poor country.

Already we see many of the young moving to other countries trying to get a job, for there is very little in the country in the way of employment. For sure, in the summer months there are waiters and cooks who serve in restaurants and cafe’s, but when winter comes many of these are shut down. During the winter the unemployment statistics are sky high.

Spain is a country the relies greatly on tourism for the health of it’s economy, and should the figures fall the country will be in dire straits. All the most popular places in Spain are the coastal resorts where people can lie on the beaches, but this does not say much for the inland cities and towns. Most of Spain’s wealth comes from the coastal cities and towns which the tourists frequent the most.

If Catalonia does become an independent state Spain will suffer significantly.

What Of The Future

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, News, Nuclear Proliferation with tags , , , , on 11/12/2017 by floroy1942

It seems to me that the whole world is going mad, for we have unrest all across the globe from the Far East to America. In many countries people are demonstrating and fighting the government for what they see as human rights and bad management. Many people are dissatisfied with their governments handling of crisis that effect them all, such as low wages, starvation in some countries, and the way governments are handling problems.

We also have Muslim terrorists everywhere threatening the stability of countries across the world. It makes me wonder what they hope to achieve, do they want the whole world to be Muslim?

Daily we see demonstrations in many countries, and not forgetting the violence as people show their hatred for the government.

When I was young the biggest demonstration in Britain was from the miners who were dissatisfied with the government of the day and the decisions made by Margret Thatcher. But since the sixties we have seen violent demonstrations with young people setting fire to buildings and cars, robbing shops, and battling with the police. Now we see huge gatherings of people marching through cities and towns all across the world causing destruction.  This is not the way the world should be.

Ever since ISIL came out of the woodwork we have seen complete destruction of many cities in Iraq and neighbouring countries, and it will take years to revitalise these cities. Most of the buildings will have to be demolished and a new construction programme initiated. This will cost untold billions, and where will it come from? Your guess is as good as mine!

We have seen millions of Africans on the verge of starvation, and food is not getting to the them fast enough. Many countries ignore the plight of these people and they are dying by the hundreds every day. Children are starving to death from the lack of food. Very few nations have sent food to these people and many are unable to survive.

We have seen millions of refugees coming to Europe because they cannot continue living in there own country and want a better life, and its not over yet. Governments must see that the people are fed so they will not need to move to Europe. But so few nations have taken the necessary measures to see that this happens.

The biggest threat to the whole world is the problem with North Korea and their nuclear weapons. Trump is consistently making threats of a nuclear war with the country as Kim Jong-Un enlarges his nuclear capability and threatens the USA with attacks. Trump has already said that he will annihilate the whole country if Kim Jong-Un decides to attack the USA. The fall-out from such an action would turn the whole world  into devastation, and millions of people would die as the whole world ends up being covered in radioactive clouds.

When will this stop and people of the world can live in peace once again? I doubt if this will happen in my lifetime. It is sad to say that if we keep going the way we are, we will see the annihilation of the human race on this planet.

When Fun Turns Evil

Posted in America, Britain, Child Discipline, Demonstration, England, Modern World, News, Parenting, Police, Teen Violence with tags , , , , on 31/08/2016 by floroy1942

Carnaval Notting HillIt seems people cannot go out and have a little fun these days without someone causing trouble. Last weekend was the Notting Hill Carnival to celebrate the Caribbean Culture in Britain, but as usual, somebody started causing trouble. Whenever there is a celebration or peaceful demonstration in Britain there is always someone who thinks it is an excuse to cause mayhem. What is wrong with these people?

Police Deal With An Incident

Police Deal With An Incident

During the Notting Hill celebrations 454 people were arrested on charges that included drug possession, carrying knives, assault, sexual offences and theft. During the Carnival  a 15-year-old boy was stabbed in Wornington Road on Sunday. His injuries were critical but are now non-life threatening. A 14-year-old boy was arrested. Three other males, aged 15 to 20, were also wounded in knife attacks on the opening day of the festival.

Medics were on hand to administer help to those who were injured or unwell from alcohol or drugs. Medical beds were even deployed at roadsides in some locations. Ambulance and first aid crews treated more than 1,000 people, mostly for alcohol-related injuries, 77 of whom needed to be hospitalized.

Arrest Of A Suspect

Arrest Of A Suspect

Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, said “A seemingly growing number of people appear intent on hijacking this Carnival and turning it into a Bank Holiday battleground. The Glastonbury music festival had 40 arrests this year. Notting Hill had 10 times that amount. The organisers need to understand that this event cannot carry on regardless. I think many Londoners will wonder whether the significant amount of taxpayers’ money spent policing this event is frankly worth it.”

The carnival, founded in 1966 by West Indian immigrants following the Notting Hill race riots of 1958, frequently has involved clashes with police. Many local businesses have closed during the event since 1977, when police stormed the carnival amid looting of shops. The 2008 festivities ended in a street riot. Last year, police arrested 407 people, a record for an event where knifing’s committed by youth gangs have become a troubling trend.

In my view these same troublemakers are responsible for hi-jacking very many public events and demonstrations. I believe they are out to deliberately cause trouble, and use such gatherings as an excuse ‘to have a go’ at people and the police every time there is a gathering. This sort of thing is a cancer in Britain and it is spreading.

The Press On The G20 Riots

The Press On The G20 Riots

The country has had so many of these incidents over the past ten years, like the G20 riots in June 2010. There is without doubt a minority of youth in Britain who are looking for any excuse to cause trouble because it makes them feel good. Burning cars and buildings, attacking the police, and not forgetting looting shops.

G20 Destruction

G20 Destruction

Part of the problem is that the police always get blamed for ‘heavy handedness’  when they try to stop these attacks. It has been proven that police are provoked and when they hit back they are recorded on video camera’s or phones which is then distributed on the internet. During the G20 riots this happened in several cases, in particular with a teenage girl who deliberately baited a policeman until he smacked her across the face. She continued to bait him and eventually he hit her with his truncheon on the leg. The video went viral and the officer was suspended, all through no fault of his own.

Good Parent?

Good Parent?

Its for sure that things will never change now in Britain and the problem may get steadily worse For it is a fact that many children from poorer families in the U.K. are allowed to do as they please by their parents, because they cannot be bothered to control them and bring them up properly.

I am not saying that Britain is the only place where such things happen, but it does occur there far more than in other countries. You only have to look at the riots that took place during the last European Football Challenge to see how it is spreading.

Football In The Street

Football In The Street

It is very different from when I was a child, when people had respect for each other and children were brought up properly. We have entered an age where ‘anything goes’ and you can do what the hell you like. If you get caught, so what, you will probably only get a warning from the judge not to do it again and you will be free to carry on.

This is not what life is supposed to be about.

Anti-Refugee Protest? – The Tip Of The Iceberg

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, England, European Union, Germany, Immigrants, Insurgents, Muslim, News with tags , , , , on 20/12/2015 by floroy1942

With the massive influx of refugees from Syria and the huge number of economic refugees taking advantage of the situation, it was inevitable that somewhere in Europe trouble would begin because the people were not consulted about the acceptance of so many refugees. This has proven to be true as outbreaks of violence against refugees takes hold in some countries.

Germany has already seen demonstrations and attacks against the plans where proposed refugee centres have been vandalized, and in one case burnt to the ground.

Now the trouble has spread to Holland. In the town of Geldermalsen near Utrecht a violent riot took place on Wednesday night against plans to build  facilities to house 1500 asylum seekers. This follows an attack on  a Syrian refugee centre in October.

The demonstration of around 2,000 people turned violent as missiles were thrown at the police, and the demonstrators surrounded the meeting hall where the town councillors were discussing the plans. As the demonstrators finally broke into the building the councillors had to be evacuated. Eventually the police had to fire warning shots into the air.

Migrant Arrivals - Where Do We Put Them All?

Migrant Arrivals – Where Do We Put Them All?

From these and many other demonstrations, it becomes clear that the public do not agree with the ‘carte blanche’ acceptance of so many refugees by the governments of Europe, and in particular Germany.

In my view this will only escalate as time goes by, for there are already too many refugees in Europe who are living off the back of the taxpayer and it has to end. Already the experts are saying that after the huge influx of more than a million this year, we can expect a further two million next year as people from many countries take advantage of Angela Merkel’s ill-advised announcement that Germany would accept all refugees.

If it were purely refugees from war-torn countries like Syria or Iraq the numbers would be acceptable, but the bad thing is, around two-thirds of these refugees (official figures) are purely economic refugees from many countries that are not at war.

Any Way They Can!

Any Way They Can!

That is something we know all about in Britain, for when the traitor Tony Blair opened the gates of the country to anyone who wanted to come here he caused a major disaster for the whole country. Angela Merkel has now done much the same thing for not only Germany, but the whole of Europe as countries struggle to house and feed those pouring in.

After the demonstrations in Germany and now Holland it is clear that people are not siding with their governments on this issue, and that will eventually lead to more trouble.

It is indeed unfortunate that numbers are so overwhelming that it is impossible for the authorities to weed out all the economic refugees and send them back where they came from.

The Truth Of It!

The Truth Of It!

Those who have come alone will, once settled here, have their entire family join them which will increase the refugee total significantly. This will eventually mean that Muslims in Europe will increase their numbers by much more than a million.

I do strongly feel that we are sowing the seeds of destruction for the Europe we once knew, for the Muslims get more and more powerful as their numbers increase and they will naturally demand more and more from us until there is little left of the Europe we once knew.

I for one am very very glad I am not a twenty something year old who will be forced to watch the final demise of the European continent.

Total Hypocricy

Posted in Britain, David Cameron, Demonstration, Equality, Human Rights, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Political Correctness, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 29/09/2015 by floroy1942

I was amazed to read today that a guest speaker at the Warwick University has been banned by the Students Union from speaking at a gathering because she may offend Muslims. The person in question is Maryam Namazie, who campaigns against Sharia law, and was invited to make a speech to the Warwick Atheists, Secularists and Humanist Society.

Warwick University

Warwick University

A spokesman for the union said: “The initial decision was made in deference to the right of Muslim students not to feel intimidated or discriminated against on their university campus rather than in the interests of suppressing free speech or freedom of expression.” Notice how they refer to the university as “‘their’ university campus”, as if it belongs to the Muslims! These people should be ashamed to call themselves British!

The lady in question is well known for her work with refugees and as a secular activist and is accused of being highly inflammatory in her speeches. She said, “They are basically labelling me a racist and an extremist for speaking out against Islam and Islamism. If people like me who fled an Islamist regime can’t speak out about my opposition to the far-right Islamic movement, if I can’t criticise Islam, that leaves very few options for me as a dissenter because the only thing I have is my freedom of expression. If anyone is inciting hatred, it’s the Islamists who are threatening people like me just for deciding we want to be atheist, just because we don’t want to toe the line.”

Maryam Namazie

Maryam Namazie

Ms. Namazie fled Iran along with her family in the 1980’s after the cultural revolution and has since been living in England. Personally I find this whole episode extremely distasteful when you consider that our universities regularly invite Muslim preachers to university campuses who preach sedition and hatred.

Many of the suicide bombers and other terrorist attacks in Europe and the USA have been committed by students who have succumbed to the preachings of these radical Muslim preachers in our universities. And yet, someone who is against the Islamic faith is not allowed to utter a word in such seminars for fear of ‘upsetting the Muslims’.

It is time the government stepped in and took control of such events because this appeasement of Muslims is getting ridiculous.

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

They are allowed to openly demonstrate on the streets of our cities and towns, and yet anyone of us who demonstrates against them is immediately arrested. They have been allowed to introduce their own barbaric Sharia Law in many of our cities and towns and yet the government does nothing.

It is time for the government to takes steps to outlaw these practices and allow free speech and British Law for everyone in the country and stop this appeasement of the Muslims. All these ‘holier than thou’ do-gooder organizations must be outlawed, and we must get out from under the ridiculous human rights laws from Europe to ensure that these laws are the same for EVERYBODY!

Charlie Hebdo – Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire?

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, Demonstration, European Union, Insurgents, News, Relationships, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 17/01/2015 by floroy1942

Charlie HebdoThe tragic events of last week and the mass outpouring of indignation at the attack on free speech has it seems backfired. The release of the recent edition of Charlie Hebdo, with the cover featuring once again the Prophet Mohammed, has caused a storm of protest across the Islamic world.

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani  Condemns Paris Attack

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani Condemns Paris Attack

Countries like Iran, whose leaders condemned the attack in Paris, have now become a hotbed of violent protest at the release of the paper’s latest edition, which it sees once again as a direct insult to the Prophet.

Muslims all across the Arab world, and the Islamic followers in other countries, are incensed at what they consider a direct insult to their religion.

World Leaders Gather In Protest

World Leaders Gather In Protest

This latest edition of Charlie Hebdo has sold over 7 million copies compared to its normal circulation of around 70,000, due purely to the high profile the attack has had across the world. At the massive demonstration in support of the paper and its right to free speech, leaders from across the world came to Paris in solidarity against the terror attack that took the lives of seventeen staff members. Arab countries from across the Middle East publicly condemned the attack, even Iran, which as we all know has been chief among the Arab nations supporting terrorist groups.

Now, one week later it is clear the western world, and particularly France, is not ‘out of the woods’ yet. Seldom has there been such mass demonstrations among the Islamic people where so many, from so many countries have come together to protest.

Muslim Hatred

Muslim Hatred

To me it seems this one terror act has started a fire that will take a long time and much effort to put out. Such is the current level of hatred among Muslims for ‘infidels’ who dared so dramatically to insult their religion that it has done a huge service to the insurgent groups who will undoubtedly gain more recruits. It appears to me that we may have inadvertently lit the fuse to a new wave of terrorist attacks across the western countries.

Belgian Terrorist Arrest

Belgian Terrorist Arrest

The many arrests in Belgium, France and Germany this last week are an indication that groups are already forming to continue the slaughter initiated by the Charlie Hebdo attackers. In several European countries security forces and police are on high alert to try and head off these attacks, but it may be impossible to stop them all.

Schengen Countries

Schengen Countries

Spain has recently called for a review of the Shengan Agreement that opened all inner European borders many years ago. They say the reinstatement of border checks may help prevent the free travel of insurgents once in Europe. This may well be a good idea when you consider that terror groups, once on European soil, are free to travel from country to country.

Muhammad-The-Ideal-ProphetFor the people of France the Charlie Hebdo attack was a direct assault on free speech, which like many western countries is held to be sacrosanct. It had nothing to do with insulting another’s religion, but this was an unfortunate sideline. Everyone knows how touchy the Islamists are about insulting their prophet, and in the light of that information, I do find that the cartoons lampooning Mohammed to be somewhat provocative. Just because you have the right to do something does not make it a justifiable act.

Free Speech

Free Speech

This is in essence what the Pope said in a speech recently and to a point I have to agree with him. Just because you have the right to insult someone does not necessarily mean you have to do it. At first I was dead against what he said for it seemed he was taking sides, but on reflection I realized that his words were true. In the West we know how touchy the Islamists are about their Prophet Mohammed, so why step into the lions mouth and do something that offends them. As we see with this episode, all it has done is inflame passions against us.

So here we are, with one western newspaper starting a wave of hatred for anything non-Muslim among the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world. What have we got ourselves into?

Area Of al Quada Operations

Area Of al Quada Operations

It is clear that insurgent groups like Islamic State and al Quada will use this current wave of hate to recruit more members, and al Quada itself will feel justified in beginning a wave of attacks across Europe. Countries like France, Britain, Belgium and Germany may well become the main targets for these killers, and no matter how alert the security forces are, some will always get through.

I.S. Foreign Fighters

I.S. Foreign Fighters

It is already known that European Muslims fighting for Islamic State in Syria and Iraq have been trained in terror tactics, and many of them are already back in their country of residence. This fact poses a major problem for the security forces across Europe because to track down all of them when they return is difficult.

This whole episode is a very sad indication of our times where religious hatred, the likes of which we have not seen for a thousand years, is destroying the fabric of civilization and turning us against one another.

Is Free Speech Dying?

A Direct Attack On Free Speech By Muslims

A Direct Attack On Free Speech By Muslims

The people of Europe have been horrified by the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris which left 12 people dead, but there is far more behind the headlines. The attack itself was terrible enough, but it also shows that the long held principle of free speech is in its death throes.

Free SpeechFor centuries the people of democratic countries have had the right to say what they think without fear of reprisal, but in the last fifteen years this right has slowly been eroded away by various means. In the West the idea that you could hold views or say things that are not ‘in line’ with mainstream thinking without fear of retribution from governments, the law, or other people was sacrosanct. That is now fast disappearing.

Tony Blair

Tony Blair – Silencing Critics With Laws

A fine example is the British Racism Law, introduced by the traitor Tony Blair and his acolytes, that forbids anyone from criticising immigrants or Muslims. When Blair opened the country’s gates to several million Muslims from all parts of the world, he was careful enough to introduce this law to prevent criticism of his plans.

To quote a recent article: “The police trawl social media for ‘offensive’ statements. Laws are brought in to outlaw hatred of religions. Anti-terror strategies are broadened to include ‘extremist’ speech. Newspaper editors pull columns which cause offence. Shops remove T-shirts because of a wave of on-line outrage. Anti-racist exhibits are closed because they feature representations of racism.”

Blair's Idea Of Free Speech!

Tony Blair’s Idea Of Free Speech!

This is not ‘freedom’, this is slow strangulation of the whole idea of free speech and should not be tolerated by anyone. Every person on the planet is an individual and has the right to an opinion. If you do not agree with that opinion you offer a counter-argument, not throw that person in jail.

The worst thing of all in today’s Britain is ‘Islamophobia’, for any Muslim can demonstrate on the streets holding placards that read “Islam Will Rule The World” or “Death To The Infidel” and the police take no action for fear of being labelled racist. On the other side of the coin, if a white person stands on a street corner with one that reads “Muslims Out” or “Stop Immigration” he is immediately arrested by the selfsame police for racism!

Arrested White Demonstrator

Arrested White Demonstrator

If the wrong person hears you criticising the current immigration policy in the U.K. you can be arrested, because the country has so many ‘holier-than-thou’ people who refuse to open their eyes and see what is happening to our country.

Within most of Europe these selfsame problems are occurring, and both the people, and governments, need to open their eyes and see what is happening.

Dresden Demonstration

Dresden Demonstration

In a recent post I highlighted the demonstrations against immigration that have been taking place in Dresden Germany. They started very small but have grown in size tremendously. However, since that time many German people have started staging counter-demonstrations calling these people Islamophobic. The original demonstration has also been heavily criticised by Angela Merkel and the government.

As you read this don’t think for one moment that I am a racist bigot for I am not. My wish is for all people of all colours to live together in harmony and peace, but silencing free speech is not the way to achieve this. Governments have to learn that pampering to the needs and desires of immigrants while silencing anyone who opposes the idea, is not the way to go about things. To give immigrants more rights than you give your own people will only end up stoking the fires of hatred. Eventually there will be a backlash as the citizen’s finally say ‘enough is enough’.

A Muslim Demonstration Even Gets A Police Escort!!!

A Muslim Demonstration Even Gets A Police Escort!!!

When any sane person considers the amount of freedom given to immigrants and Muslims today, you must come to the conclusion that they are making huge gains in whatever country they reside, and the European people are slowly losing their identity.

This may come soon or it may not, but of one thing you can be sure, with the wars in the Middle East and the poverty, starvation and disease in Africa, pretty soon Europe will be overwhelmed with immigrants to the extent that eventually they will have the power to take over.

African Poverty

African Poverty

The only way to stop this, and I return to an old theme, is for the United Nations to put an end to the insurgency world-wide so that the Muslims can live safely in their own lands. On top of that, the rich nations of the world must come together to change the face of Africa, and use their knowledge and technology to make it fertile once more. This is possible.

Only by making the home countries of immigrants a peaceful and prosperous place to live can we overcome this problem. If we can achieve that they will have no need to emigrate to richer countries like Europe or America.

Whatever happens in the future, the voice of the people must never be silenced by governments, laws, or police in any democratic country, for therein lies the basis of democracy.

Obama Caught Out By Advanced Technology

Its true what they say, you cannot stop the advances in technology that hit us from all sides on a daily basis. This time it seems that the President of the USA was caught out.

For decades the safety of the President has been in the hands of the Secret Service who are tasked with protecting him. But it would seem that now a new measure has been introduced thanks to advanced technology.

It concerns the safety surrounding Air Force One, the Boeing VC-25 that currently takes Obama around the world to various meetings, conferences and on diplomatic visits. Normally the aircraft always has a military escort but this is soon to be replaced.

New scientific advances have allowed the aircraft to become totally invisible, which will give the President and his entourage complete protection from terrorist attacks because you cannot shoot down what you cannot see.

The aircraft was ready for its maiden flight and an Air Force General asked Obama if he would like to fly on the test flight. Obama immediately agreed that he would and they proceeded to the airport. The following photo was taken as the President boarded the plane.

Self-Driving Lorries – Yes or No!

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, England, Europe, Modern World, News, Police, Traffic, UK with tags , , , , on 21/08/2014 by floroy1942

I have just read a report that the United Kingdom is to trial self-driving trucks next year, and from what I read I can see a lot of confusion on the roads if this becomes a reality.

How It Works

How It Works

The plan is for a fleet of trucks to drive a few feet apart on our roads, all being controlled by the driver in the lead vehicle. Information will be passed from truck to truck via WiFi signals, infra-red cameras and lasers.

What for example would happen if  they lose the WiFi signal or experience interference that suddenly disrupts the signal? You know it happens because you have probably experienced it with your computer.

This idea may sound fine until you look into the logistics of it. From my perspective, I see the possibility of mass chaos on our roads in such an event.

Try Passing This Lot

Can you imagine the problems of passing say, ten trucks all driving a few feet apart and you want to overtake? Maybe not such a problem on motorways, but what about on normal roads? What will happen to the convoy when it comes to a round-a-bout? What will happen if the convoy has to go through a town?

All the trucks in the convoy are totally reliant on the driving skills of the lead driver, so it would take an exceptional driver to take responsibility for every vehicle in the convoy.

Confusing!

Confusing!

I can well imagine the Police having a dilemma too if the lead driver is caught speeding. Do they issue a ticket only to the lead driver, or to each one in the convoy, because basically they are all speeding.

Just as an aside, I wonder how the insurance companies will handle claims if an accident happens? Will the lead driver’s insurance cover all the vehicles because he is ‘in charge’. I doubt it. I can see a lot of squabbling going on between the companies as they try to sort out who is responsible for what!

It may sound like a good idea, but I can see it being fraught with problems, especially for other road users. I can just imagine the frustration of driving behind such a convoy, wanting to overtake but not being able to. This situation usually leads to accidents when someone takes a chance and tries to force their way past.

You can be sure there will be confusion at round-a-bouts when the convoy gets broken up because trucks have to give way to others with priority. The same can be said if they have to travel through a town.

Britain is not like America where you can drive for several hundred miles between cities on scarcely populated roads. With the exception of the motorways, roads in Britain are crowded, narrow, twisty and with populated areas every few miles. So in my view, such a thing is impractical in Britain.

Another big problem I see with such an idea is traffic safety. The driver of the lead vehicle must make decisions for the whole convoy, and naturally his mind is occupied. The following drivers however will have nothing to do because their vehicle is under his control. The situation will result in these drivers perhaps doing paperwork, gazing out the window or even falling asleep, especially at night.

And In An Emergency The Response Time Is.........?

And In An Emergency The Response Time Is………?

So what happens when a frustrated car driver trying to overtake the column, is forced by an on-coming car to pull into the few scant feet between two following vehicles? The mind of any driver must be ‘on the road’ at all times, otherwise accidents are inevitable. Driving a truck from London to Glasgow is tiring for anyone, but to be sat behind the wheel with nothing to do makes the problem ten times worse.

Looking at this idea from a global perspective, I can well see that it would work in Europe for trucks travelling from e.g. Calais in France to Madrid in Spain, or from Eastern Europe to the west, for these vehicles travel perhaps a thousand kilometres or more, and mainly on motorways.

The world today has more than it’s fair share of bad drivers, but to take away control of a heavy goods vehicle from the driver on English roads is to me a recipe for disaster.
