We are without doubt entering a dark future for human kind. The number of wars, murders and riots have been escalating for years and we have no control against it. Our politicians have all but given up against the uncontrolled violence of today.

Middle-East-2014-Chaos

For more than ten years we have seen war in the Middle East and other countries, and murders have climbed through the roof all across the world. In many countries rioting and demonstrations have made most countries unlivable if you want peace. Taxes have gone through the roof, and most people are living on the barest of means, all except the rich that is.

The number of vehicles on our roads are polluting the atmosphere like never before, and we are polluting the oceans to such an extent that pretty soon it will become a plastic cesspit.

None of the politicians are doing much about it except have conference after conference, but very little comes out of it. They make pledge after pledge but very few of these are really put into effect.

The first thing we should do is reduce drastically the number of vehicles on our roads, otherwise we will go back to the horse and cart days. Many people are dying across the world due to the pollution that is choking our skies, and we have to reduce this.

It will take perhaps a hundred years before the Earth gets back to normal, but by that time most humans will have perished due to the constant contamination of  our atmosphere.

42-37534896There is little doubt that if we continue in this way, the government must make some hard decisions to stop the pollution of our skies.

06c19a9d-5ad4-41a7-a264-76af3ec8b6b2-large16x9_TROPICALSatellite1We see huge storms and hurricanes across the world and I think these will get worse as time goes on. Already we have seen tremendous floods in many parts of the world due the unprecedented rain that has fallen on some countries, and in other areas of the world we have seen no rainfall  at all. Spain is one these nations that is running out of fresh water with the reservoirs almost dry. If we do not get some real rain soon the water supplies will dry out.

It is sad what we are doing to our planet, and the human race will eventually cease to exist.

We Are Poisoning Ourselves!

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Government Spending, News, Russia, Traffic with tags , , , , on 16/02/2017 by floroy1942

What is the world coming to? Disaster, that’s what! New information released by Eco Experts shows a map that tracks world atmospheric pollution by country, and the results will surprise you. More than half the world’s countries are producing a toxic atmosphere caused by industry and vehicles way above what the world can handle.

The Most Toxic Countries In The World

The Most Toxic Countries In The World

As you can see, the most toxic are the oil nations who provide the world with this precious commodity. Next in line is Russia and Canada closely followed by the United States.

It has been known for some time that the atmosphere in Chinese cities are among the most toxic in the world, but there are other countries like Doha in Qatar.

Doha In Qata

Doha In Qatar

To live in places like Shanghai or Qatar must be a very unpleasant experience and your life expectancy must be very short. Already we have seen Chinese people walking the streets wearing masks to try and prevent the pollution from getting into their lungs.

So what does this say for the world as a whole? It means that in effect we are poisoning our atmosphere to the extent that, in maybe twenty or thirty years, the air we breath will so toxic that life expectancy will be very short. The sad thing is that governments the whole world over are not prepared to solve this crisis for humanity.

A group of doctors in London have put forward a request for all diesel cars to be banned from the road because they are the worst polluters of all. It’s a good suggestion, but nothing will ever come of it, for it will be too expensive and the public will never accept it.

American Traffic Jam

American Traffic Jam

It is well-known that many families have three and four cars in America which greatly increases the number of cars on the roads. It’s also one of the reasons why we see major traffic jams on American roads into and out of cities. With more than a billion cars and trucks on the world’s roads it is easy to see where the pollution of our atmosphere comes from.

There can be little doubt that if we continue as we are, the atmosphere will become so polluted that human life will cease to exist on this planet. We are headed for an Armageddon of our own making, and to stop it, governments must come together to solve the problem.

Time For Reform In Our Prisons

Posted in America, Britain, England, Government Spending, Justice, Modern World, News, Police, Politics, Prison with tags , , , , on 17/12/2016 by floroy1942

I read with interest about the prison riot in HMP Birmingham England yesterday, and I was shocked that such a thing could still happen in our prisons. I have always thought that the British prison system is far too soft on those who commit crimes, especially murder and rape.

All The Comforts Of Home

All The Comforts Of Home

These days a killer will be sentenced to ten years and be released in three or four. Surely that is not a just sentence for someone who has murdered an innocent person. Not only that, but prisoners these days live in  better conditions than most of our poorer people. With a TV, Radio, disc player and many other luxuries in their cells, plus snooker tables and chess sets, all paid for by the taxpayer.  There can be little doubt that the ‘Do-Gooders’ in our society have turned prison into a holiday camp. Long gone are the days when you were locked in a cell with just the bare minimum like a bed, wash bowl and toilet. They are more like hotel rooms these days.

The riot in Birmingham lasted twelve hours and a significant amount of damage was done. Again, the taxpayer may well foot the bill for repairs. The trouble has been quoted as being the worst since the Strangeways jail riot in 1990. UK prisons chief Michael Spurr said there were “serious problems” in jails that would not be solved immediately. Justice Secretary Liz Truss said  the rioters would “face the full force of the law.” Now what did she mean by that? An extra three months added to their sentence? I cannot see much coming out of her statement to the Press.

The rioting was said to have involved up to 600 inmates with some severe damage to parts of the prison. Currently it is said that the company that runs the prison, G4S, will be made to foot the bill for repairs although I doubt that. A G4S spokesman said,  “Our teams have worked tirelessly throughout the night to assess the damage caused, start the process of clearing up and capture any evidence that could be used by West Midlands Police for any subsequent prosecutions.”

Mike Spurr

Mike Spurr

This is the third prison violence episode in six weeks following trouble at Lewes and Bedford, and the authorities are worried that it could spread to other prisons in the country. Michael Spurr, who is chief executive of the National Offender Management Service Agency, said overcrowding, reduced staffing and drugs had put pressure on prisons.

In my view the authorities should draft in many more wardens to keep control, and ensure that the prisons are so constructed that it will be impossible for inmates to gather in large numbers. When such an occurrence takes place there should be sufficient wardens to quell the violence, using water cannons and tear gas if necessary. Prisoners need to have all their ‘goodies’ taken away so that they really know the meaning of punishment.

An Easy Time In Prison

An Easy Time In Prison

To allow a murderer or child rapist out of prison within three or four years should be done away with and they should serve a very long time in prison under a harsh regime. Today, killers etc. think nothing of it if they are caught, because they know they will be out in just a few years, and on top of that, have an easy time in prison.

There can be little doubt that the Justice System in Britain has gone soft on criminals, and for that we are all paying the price.

Why Is Britain Outsourcing Contracts?

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Government Spending, News, Politics, Royal Navy, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 07/10/2016 by floroy1942

Is the UK government going mad or what? I have read over the last year of major manufacturing projects being outsourced to foreign companies by the dozen. Looking for the cheapest option is not always a good thing, and it is killing our own manufacturing industry. Our steel industry was sold off to Tata, an Indian company some years ago, but why? I guess it was so the original directors and owners could make a handsome profit.

Our own steel industry is in dire straits having lost thousands of jobs over the past two years, and yet there is no help from the government. This loss of jobs was due to the government buying the cheap, state-subsidised Chinese steel.

Take for example the Hinkley Point nuclear plant that is being built. Why outsource it to France? Are our engineers not capable of building a nuclear power station? Why are we buying steel from China when our own steel industry is collapsing? If the contracts had been awarded to our own companies it would have saved thousands of jobs, and perhaps our steel industry as a whole.

And now yet another idiotic decision has been made by allowing France to supply the steel used to build a major part of our next fleet of nuclear submarines! A contract has been signed with French group Industeel to supply the steel used to build the pressure hull of our new Trident replacement.

In years gone by we had the greatest manufacturing industry in Europe but this has been whittled away by successive governments. Even our trains and busses are manufactured in Germany among many other things, and for what?

British manufacturing is slowly being strangled by so many contracts being given to foreign country’s. It is time the government did something to try and save our manufacturing  companies, for otherwise the entire industry will collapse completely. I live in hope that things will change – soon.

How Unbelievably Stupid Can Europe’s Politicians Be?

Posted in America, Benefits, Britain, England, European Union, Germany, Government Spending, Immigration, News, Politics with tags , , , , on 18/03/2016 by floroy1942
Why Is Europe Run By Idiots?

Why Is Europe Run By Idiots?

We all know that politicians can be imbeciles at times, but this latest round of talks to stem the flow of refugees from Turkey into the E.U. takes the number one prize. The deal the E.U. is trying to make with the Turkish government will cause as much upheaval in Europe as the migrant crisis itself.

In a nutshell, they are accepting one migrant for every one that is returned to Turkey, but such an exchange will not reduce the numbers one iota, so what is the point? To top it all they will allow visa free travel for all Turks to the E.U.

We already have five and a half million Turks living here, 80% of whom live in Germany, and the crazy thing is, according to official statistics most of them live off benefits!

Things To Come!

Things To Come!

What this means in effect, is that the number of migrants will not be cut, and they are throwing open the doors to 74 million Turks, many of whom will want to come here. Europe already has a significant Turkish population and you can almost guarantee that the numbers will increase dramatically if this agreement goes through.

Turkey has a Muslim population of some 69 million, and what is to say that many will not want to come here? Life is hard in Turkey for the majority of people, and for sure many will want to come here and live off benefits and get free housing. ‘Talk about stepping out of the frying pan into the fire!’

When Summer Comes.....

When Summer Comes…..

The one thing all our politicians seem to have forgotten is that as the Turkish route to Europe closes, it is certain the migrants will find another way to get to our shores. As the weather improves more refugees will make the perilous crossing from Libya to Italy, and what will they do then? Plus the fact that there is already talk of refugees crossing the Gibraltar Straits to Spain.

Once the migrants start crossing from Libya it will be interesting to see how the politicians in Brussels handle that. Libya will certainly not be as willing to negotiate as the Turks, for they will be glad to get rid of the refugees because they have troubles of their own with their internal conflicts. This leaves the big question as to what the politicians in Brussels will do under these circumstances.

You can say what you like about this stupid plan, but it is so full of holes that a bus could drive through! I just wish we could have politicians running the Union who had a little more common sense!

The biggest problems associated with these refugees is that the Europeans will start paying more and more taxes as each government tries to cover the benefits cost caused by these people, plus there will be a colossal housing shortage and the unemployment figures will rise because there are not enough jobs to go round.

Norway Gang Rape By Muslims

Norway Gang Rape By Muslims

The Muslim influence on native people will be felt more and more, for after they have established themselves here they will begin making more and more demands on the various governments to adapt western life to their own lifestyle. More Mosques, no pork in school meals and of course the inevitable introduction of Sharia Law. What is more dangerous is that our women will not be safe on the streets anymore, for Muslims consider rape of western women their right.

You may well scoff at this announcement, but we have seen it all in Britain ever since the traitor Blair opened the doors of Britain to the world. It has happened, and it will happen throughout Europe!

As we all know, the one person responsible for this whole mess is Angela Merkel of Germany who last year made her unbelievably stupid invitation to all refugees to come and live in Germany. This single mentally retarded act has caused the biggest upheaval in the E.U. since the Second World War.

Turkish Shop In Cologne

Turkish Shop In Cologne

How any responsible politician could be so stupid is totally beyond me. For this traitorous act she should be arrested, tried and sent to prison for the rest of her miserable life. She has brought utter chaos to every European nation.

This may be hard to swallow, but the only solution so far as I can see is to return all refugees to their home country as soon as they land on our shores. If this is put into practice the flow will stop fairly quickly as theses people realize that there is no point in heading for Europe. It will also put the people smugglers out of business which will be a good thing.

No Sharia Law Here

No Sharia Law Here

To solve this problem is going to take hard measures that will no doubt inflame the passions of the ‘Do-Gooders’, but there is no other choice. To surrender will only result in the final destruction of Europe and all it stands for. The livelihoods of our people will be destroyed for good and eventually Europe may well become ‘Europistan’!

The Baby Factory On Benefits

Posted in Benefits, Britain, Children, Elections, England, Government Spending, Justice, News, Parenting, Theft with tags , , , , on 17/03/2015 by floroy1942

Some people will do just about anything to live the high life without having to work for a living in this day and age. That is the reason why I was not surprised to hear of a women who is making  £39,192 a year in benefits just by having children. Cheryl Prudham currently has eleven with another on the way. Her husband works as a delivery man with an annual salary of £19,200, so this means the family income is £58,392.

Prudham Family Shopping

Prudham Family Shopping

It is reported they went on holiday to Menorca last year that cost the tax payer £7,000, but that is not all. The family were recently photographed shopping at a luxury goods store where it is said she bought a handbag for £895, not the sort of thing your average wife could afford. They even had the gall to be photographed in front of the store and stood proudly posing for the camera. Some people have no shame these days.

The Prudham's

The Prudham’s

They are currently living in a five-bedroom council house but are waiting to get one with seven bedrooms because the current one is too cramped. The family have managed to avoid the Government’s £26,000-a-year benefits cap because Mr Prudham works enough hours to claim working tax credit.

There are millions of people in Britain today who can barely make ends meet, and yet these benefit fraudsters are living the high life by cheating the tax payer. This to me is scandalous and means that the rules desperately need to be changed.

Headlines - But Not Enough To Spur The Government Into AcTion

Headlines – But Not Enough To Spur The Government Into AcTion

This kind of thing is happening all over Britain today and is bleeding the coffers dry, because the rules are too lax and these free-loaders soon find out they can have a good life without even having to work for it.

There are without doubt many such cases in the U.K. today, for we are deep into a period where everyone expects something for nothing. In fact many believe it is their God-given right, and being a ‘benefit cheat’ has become a way of life for many. This covers all areas of benefits from those who will not work to those with disabilities. The days of everyone ‘doing their bit’ for the good of the nation and their families are long gone, and we are a sadder nation because of it.

Britain’s Debt Mountain Reaches £1.39TRILLION, Equivalent To 90% Of The Entire Economy.

Britain’s Debt Mountain Reaches £1.39TRILLION, Equivalent To 90% Of The Entire Economy.

The gap between the ‘have’s and have not’s’ is increasing year on year and we blame corruption at the higher levels for this. But when you look at the facts, many of those at the lower levels are no different. Ever since the last Labour government came into power Britain’s debt has steadily increased and it will never be put right so long as the current generation constantly expect something for nothing.

Come the election in May, I hope whoever gets in will put a stop to this blatant fraud. Mind you, I am not holding my breath on that one!

Insurance Number Quotas – Cameron Got It Wrong!

A Disillusioned Man

A Disillusioned Man

David Cameron is once again in the news because of his new plan to make cuts in European migrants who come to Britain for work. But once again the silly man got it wrong! Jose Manuel Barroso has castigated him saying that free movement of European citizens is essential to the workings of the European Union (E.U.), and such a move would be against E.U. Laws.

UK National Insurance Card

UK National Insurance Card

Cameron’s idea is to place a limit on the number of new National Insurance Numbers given out to migrants, which should mean those without one cannot be legally employed. He is planning to give out only 100,000 per year, which according to him will restrict the flow of migrants to that number. He envisages only giving a temporary insurance number which would stop them from moving to Britain to work and claim benefits indefinitely. As the saying goes: “In yer dreams Pal!”

Migrant Workers Favoured For This Work

Migrant Workers Favoured For This Work

Such a tactic may help somewhat, but it will not put much of a damper on the numbers. Many will work without one because there are too many employers who will give them a job ‘on the black’ in order to save labour costs. As Mr. Barroso has stated, such a plan would cause great upheaval and problems within the E.U. for Great Britain and will, I am sure, founder on the rocks.

No Mr. Cameron, you are definitely on the wrong track! If you want to cut down on the number of immigrants coming to our shores there is only one way to do it: Stop giving them free benefits, housing and health care!

Just take a look at two random E.U. countries and see how they compare to the U.K.

DENMARK

Health care – Free, available immediately

Child benefit – Up to £161 a month available after 12 months

Unemployment benefit – Minimum of one year’s work required to qualify

Housing benefit – No equivalent scheme

HOLLAND

Health care – Only available with a certificate proving entitlement

Child benefit – Immediate payment of £943 per year

Unemployment benefit – Six-month qualifying period

Housing benefit – Means tested, available immediately

The E.U. Migrant Flow Into The U.K.

The E.U. Migrant Flow Into The U.K.

UNITED KINGDOM

Health care – Available immediately and free of charge under the National Health Service

Child benefit – Paid immediately if the child is under 16, or 16 to 19 and in education or training, and the claimant has an individual income of less than £50,000. Amount is £20.30 a week (£1,055 per annum) for the eldest or only child, £13.40 (£696 per annum) per additional child.

Unemployment benefit – Immediate payment of £71.70 (£3,728 per annum,) a week in Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) after proving ‘you are actively seeking work’. EU migrants have to pass the “right-to-reside” test to show they are “economically active”. The European Commission wants to abolish this test. There is also contribution-based additional JSA which is only available after working for at least two years.

Housing benefit – Available immediately if you are on a low income, whether you are working or unemployed. How much depends on individual circumstances, but amount cannot normally exceed £250 per week (£3,000 per annum) for a one-bedroom property, or up to £400 a week (£4,800 per annum) for four bedrooms or more.

Migrants Looking For Casual (None Registered) Work

Migrants Looking For Casual (None Registered) Work

Britain should be like other European countries, where, if you are not working, you get very limited benefits until you have been in the country, and worked long enough to earn them! This should apply to every immigrant, whether he or she is from within the E.U. or not. Over the years it has become clear that many of the immigrants coming to our shores do so for one thing,  free handouts.

Immigration Figures 2014

The Biggest Problem Is Self Evident!

It is true that many E.U. migrants do come here to find work, and many do so quickly, but they all get benefits and free health insurance and treatment from the NHS, and we all know what a mess that is in. So far as the non-E.U. migrants are concerned, all they want are the benefits, free housing and health care.

Someone Tells It Like It Is!

Someone Tells It Like It Is!

If all those wishing to come to this country are told they will get no benefits, free housing or health care for at least a year, the flow will rapidly decrease, especially among the non-E.U. migrants.

I think Mr, Cameron, you will have much more success with this plan than yours!

Death Of The National Health Service?

Posted in Benefits, Britain, Budget Cuts, England, Germany, Government Spending, Health, Immigration, News, UK with tags , , , , , on 08/10/2014 by floroy1942

Twenty years ago it would have seemed impossible that the National Health Service (NHS) could today be in its death throes. It is a sad indication of our times that our much vaunted health system could be on the point of collapse due to a lack of funding.

The National Health Charter

The National Health Charter

When it was launched in 1946 it was hailed as a major breakthrough in healthcare throughout the world. It provided free care to all people in the UK and was funded by the tax system. It has had tremendous success throughout its history and has served the British people well for 69 years. And then things changed! It is a sad fact that the NHS is not what it used to be. Now there is a shortage of doctors, trained nurses, beds, facilities and equipment that can no longer be addressed.

During the major sociological changes that took place in the 60’s and 70’s, fewer people were attracted to train as doctors and nurses which left major shortages. These were filled by the influx of people from the Caribbean and ex-colonies during that time and the problem was solved, or rather delayed, because bright young people continued to be enticed by more attractive jobs. During the last fifteen years these shortages have been filled by immigrants. This has not always been successful because not enough care was taken to ensure they were well enough trained, or spoke a satisfactory level of English.

This of course has diminished the effectiveness of the NHS but is not the so-called ‘killing stroke’.

    Typical Hospital Waiting Room

Three Brits – Four Immigrants

We have two factors here that contribute to the decline of the NHS as a service. The first is the increase in the ageing population because people live longer now than 50 years ago. The second, and by far the most damaging, is the huge influx of millions of immigrants since Tony Blair opened the doors wide during his tenure as Prime Minister.

Now, let me make things clear here! This is not an anti-immigrant rant and I do not hate immigrants! They are just people who took advantage of a golden opportunity given them by Tony Blair.

How We Lost Control - Thanks To Labour

How We Lost Control – Thanks To Labour

Like everyone else they have a need for health care and should receive it, but the problem is, ever since our dear Tony opened the gates he promised it to them for free along with all the other benefits he handed out to each and every one. But not only that, because restrictions were not put in place as soon as the man of the house arrived, then came his family, including parents, grand-parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, you name it. Sadly, they were all allowed free care on the NHS! If you are an immigrant into Germany for example, you get little if any benefits until you have worked a fixed number of years. And only then do you get free health care! Its the same in many European countries – why do you think they all want to come to Britain?

So you can clearly see where the problem lies. Ever since the immigrants started pouring in the NHS has become overloaded and just cannot cope any more.

British Medical Association

British Medical Association

Leading figures from the British medical world sent a letter to the Prime Minister saying: “Historic annual increases in the health budget, designed to keep pace with a growing and ageing population, have been severely reduced – meaning that our NHS has just been through the longest and most damaging budget squeeze in its history. Savings have been made, and despite the best efforts of nurses, doctors and other staff, patients have not been insulated from these cuts. Too many staff feel undervalued and demoralised when all they want is to be able to care for patients.” The letter also points to signs of a system “buckling under the twin crises of rising demand and flat-lining budgets”. Now that should be clear enough language for anyone.

It is a fact that people spend several hours sitting in a hospital waiting room before they get to see anyone, and the same is true at most G.P. doctor services. The most frequent problems suffered by the NHS at the moment, as highlighted by the letter are:

Patients struggling to get an appointment due to the shortage of G.Ps.

Many women not getting the high-quality care they deserve due to pressures on maternity services,

Thousands of patients facing longer and even unacceptable waits to find out whether or not they have cancer.

Families being “crippled” by the cost of social care, with thousands of elderly and vulnerable people not getting the help they need.

People with long-term progressive conditions such as dementia being cut adrift, reliant on unpaid and unsupported carers.

There can be little doubt the NHS, one of this countries proudest achievements, is buckling under the strain of too many patients and too little resources. It is fact that the whole economy of the country is being undermined, and has been ever since the doors opened.

UK Unemployed

UK Unemployed

We have more unemployed than in any other time in our history, plus a housing shortage that is crippling young people starting out in life. The benefits system is on its knees also, trying to keep up with every Tom, Dick or Harry that enters the country with their hand open.

The Decision Makers

The Decision Makers

You can see how concerned some of the political leaders are by this statement. Cameron promised real-term increases in NHS spending from 2015-20, Ed Miliband promised an extra £2.5bn a year and Nick Clegg pledged £1bn extra in 2016 and 2017. Looks like Clegg of the Liberal Democrats is not too worried about the situation.

Thanks to the crackpot decisions made at the turn of the decade by the lunatic Blair and his colleagues, Britain is suffering its worst crisis since the Second World War. These immigrants should have been treated as in most other countries these days, they pay their way until qualified for assistance. Thanks Tony! You have managed to do what Hitler never could – Bring this country to its knees!

How Can You Ever Trust A Politician?

Ed Milliband - You Believe Me Don't You?

Ed Milliband – You Believe Me Don’t You?

In all my years I have never heard such a ridiculous bunch of bullshit as that being spouted by the current Labour leader Ed Milliband. Only a fool will ever trust the promises of a politician when they are trying to get elected, and none more so than this idiot. He is asking the British electorate for ten years in power to “reverse the damage done by the Conservatives“, during which he will build “a world class Britain”! …Really?

I find it quite fascinating that Labour are consistently blaming the Tories for the utter mess the country is in, and posting themselves as the ‘lily-white’ saviours. They must think the electorate are either stupid or have very short memories.

Headline From 2003

Headline From 2003

We have reached the stage where the people are taxed to the hilt, the NHS and benefits systems are on the point of collapsing, there is not enough housing for everyone, and the economy is falling apart. After all the damage the previous Labour government did to this once great nation I find it incredible that anyone would ever trust them again.

All of the problems this country is suffering can be traced directly back to Tony Blair and his Labour government throwing the doors wide open to millions of immigrants from wherever in the world who wanted to come to Britain. Not only that, but he gave them free access to the NHS, Benefits and housing, prioritizing them over people born and bred here! As you would expect, this all cost money so what did Labour do? They borrowed it and put the country deep in debt! So much for Blair’s ‘Multi-Cultural Britain’.

How Milliband has the nerve to stand up in public and deliver this following extraction from his speech defy’s the imagination:

You see. According to Ed Milliband this is all the fault of the Conservatives!

He now promises a ten-year plan to build “a World Class Britain with no extra money” and believe it or not, there will be idiots who believe him and vote Labour at the next election!

NHS - Going? Going?... Gone?

NHS – Going? Going?… Gone?

He ‘pledges’ a spending boost for the NHS without a mention of where the money will come from, he also ‘pledges’ to help young people get on the housing ladder by building 200,000 more homes. He says, “So many people have lost faith in the future. I’ve met young people who should have the brightest of futures who tell me their generation is falling into a black hole.” This is very true, but the fact that young people cannot get jobs is because Labour sabotaged the education system and the jobs market is flooded with immigrants who work for less money.

Among his other promises are “to halve the number of low-paid workers and to create a million new “green” technology jobs”. Again, he does not say how he will do this! He also says, “For Labour, this election is about you. You have made the sacrifices. You have taken home lower wages year after year. You have paid higher taxes. You have seen your energy bills rise. You have seen your NHS decline. You know this country doesn’t work for you. We can build that better future for you and your family, wherever you live in the United Kingdom, and this speech is about Labour’s plan to do it: Labour’s plan for Britain’s future.”

The one thing he does not say is HOW!

Diane Abbot - She said It!

Diane Abbot – She said It!

In my view, Labour did so much damage to the country that it may never get back to what it was, and don’t forget that many Labour M.P’s have said publicly that mass immigration should, and will continue under a Labour government. I don’t know about you, but the idea of that happening scares the pants off me, for it will surely spell the death knell for our country.

Harriet Harman - She Said It!

Harriet Harman – She Said It!

Yesterday, Ed Balls the Shadow Chancellor said that Labour would not borrow money to fund spending commitments. Let me tell you now that will never happen. Why? Because Labour have never done that in all their years of existence despite promises it made in the past, and more importantly, there just isn’t enough money in the bank! In their long history Labour have always promised what people want to hear, but seldom delivered. Remember the days of ‘Boom and Bust’?

So what do the Conservatives think of all this? Well, in the words of  Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps : “Ed Miliband forgets that he was at the heart of a Labour government which had three terms, 13 years – and left Britain on its knees at the end of it. A vote for Labour is a vote to put the recovery at risk, jobs at risk and the long-term future of our country at risk.” I must say I couldn’t have put it better myself!

Which One Do You Trust?

Which One Do You Trust?

As you well know, Ed Milliband agreed with the Government to allow extra powers for Scotland during the referendum crisis (for that is what it was), and also to the giving of extra powers to Wales, Northern Island and various major cities around the country. Now in his speech he says: “Our task is to restore people’s faith in the future. But the way to do it is not to break up our country (?). It is to break with the old way of doing things, break with the past.” Now to me that sounds like a direct contradiction to what he agreed with the government!

Whichever way it goes at the election, the people of Britain will not be the winners, for among the existing three parties I do not believe any of them are capable of properly repairing the massive damage Tony Blair and Labour did with their Multi-Cultural Britain Plan. I just hope the electorate really think hard before they cast their votes at the General Election.

A Benefit System Scandal

Much has been said about the Benefit System in Britain today, in particular how easy it is to live for free in our once great democracy. It is not until the true facts hit you in face so to speak, that many people will believe the stories.

Tales of people living off benefits who are perfectly capable of going out to work, families and young girls making a life for themselves by having children just to claim benefits, so called ‘job seekers’ who don’t really try, it all adds up to billions of pounds each year.

The government departments responsible for monitoring those who claim are woefully inadequate or incompetent, however, every now and again we do hear of someone who has been caught out. There have been cases in the past where so-called invalids were monitored having a high old time on holiday in various parts of the world, no sign of crutches or wheelchairs anywhere, and ‘jobless’ people have been caught red-handed working privately somewhere or other.

A TV team have brought home another truth about our scandalous tax payer give-away, and that is to EU migrants who come here from other European countries to live the high life on benefits. The programme was aired recently on television and although I was unable to record the whole thing, I did find it on You-tube, split into three parts. It does make for compulsive watching to see how foreign nationals have come to our country to live off the system, and coincidentally, the British tax payer.

They are gypsies from Slovakia and Romania and come here to live the kind of life they could never have in their own countries. You cannot blame them for wanting a better life.

To the credit of true Romanians, they are quite willing to work for their money if they can find a job, and I can attest to the fact that the Romanian people themselves are hard workers, however I do not include a majority of Gypsies in that category. I went to Romania many many times over a period of ten years and have seen these things first hand.

What must be galling to most people in Britain is the ease in which these people can gain entry into the benefits system after they have landed. Just a few pieces of paper and they are free to claim any number of benefits without having done a days work. They get free housing, free medical care and by comparison to their homeland, live a life of sheer luxury without having to lift a finger, except to sign the claim form of course.

One of the most annoying things about the whole system is that they can claim for children who are not even in the country. One family in the film has eleven children and eleven grandchildren and can claim for the lot. The money he gets goes straight back to Romania or Slovakia depending on where he is from. Many bring their parents over here and they immediately start claiming benefits also, which only adds to the burden on the British tax payer.

It is time we had a government willing to put a stop to this disgraceful situation and began coming down hard on these people. Not only the EU immigrants, but also the foreign ones that come here from outside the EU. We must turn to a system like Germany where you have to be in the country doing a job of work for a long period before you can even think of claiming any benefits at all.

Immigrants who come here must have a job waiting for them and have enough money to be able to live outside the benefits system. Benefits must only be given to those born in this country, and who hold a British passport. People like those in this film should be rounded up and sent back to their home country if they have no income other than benefits.

For those ‘homegrown’ benefit cheats, they should be rounded up, made to pay back their ill-gotten gains and serve a prison sentence. Children’s allowance should be paid for the first two children only, and not a cent more.

Only in this way can we sort out the quagmire that our previously much-vaunted benefit system has become. It will take a tough government to solve all these problems in the way I describe and that will certainly not be the Con/Lab/Lib parties. I have seen a lot of people are going to put their faith in the UKIP party of Nigel Farage come the next election, and if he is true to his word and gets us out of the EU, or at least gets us out from under the choking Immigrant and Human Rights Laws, then as a nation we may stand a chance of recovery from this Blair/Brown nightmare. I wait in hope.

Some Reasons for Spain’s Economic Difficulties

Posted in Benefits, Budget Cuts, Europe, European Union, Government, Government Spending, Politics, Spain with tags , , on 29/11/2013 by floroy1942

I learned today how the Spanish people are being bled dry by their inept government. It is staggering to hear that companies are being screwed by having to pay a massive 45% social security on every salary they pay out to their staff. The effect on the country’s employment rate is incalculable.

Spanish Unemployment

Spanish Unemployment

It has put most companies in an impossible position, in that they cannot afford to hire new workers because of this huge amount from each salary that goes to the government. Likewise, people are in desperate straits trying to exist on the small pay they receive because it costs the companies too much to give them a living wage.

As you can imagine, companies are loath to take on new workers due to this huge tax burden, and this I believe is one of the reasons for the huge unemployment levels in  the country.

House of Horrors

The governments point of view I suppose is they consider this move necessary to cover the huge cost of unemployment benefit, which the figures show has gone through the roof in recent years. It seems the government fails to see that if they made it easier for companies to hire more workers, the unemployment figures would tumble and therefore cost them less in benefits. It’s a simple question of balance, and the government is way off line.

Even though unemployment benefit in Spain is meagre by anyone’s standards, and barely enough for an average family to live on, people are only entitled to it for a maximum of two years, after which time they get nothing.

At Wits End

At Wits End

Another atrocious rule from the government is that governing pensions. From what I have been told, you must work and pay into the system for a minimum of 25 years to qualify for a pension. In effect, this means you could be working for 24 years and when you retire you would get nothing. Most other countries pay out a percentage for the years you have paid into the scheme, i.e. if you pay in for 50% of your working life you get a 50% pension. But not Spain, its 25 years or nothing. This is scandalous in anyone’s language and has a dramatic effect on everyone.

I will freely admit to not being an economist, but one of the glaring questions over this governments policies is: Where does all this money go?

The Spanish people certainly don’t see any of it in improvements to the infrastructure or their living conditions. As a single example, many roads in Spain are in atrocious condition but not a single penny is spent on improving them. Wages have been stagnant for several years but prices for everything continue to rise at an alarming rate. Spain still has a huge debt that will take many years to overcome, and the entire economy is constantly on the verge of collapse.

Only one thing that is certain, and that is the rich will continue to get richer, and the rest will continue to suffer for some time. There is little doubt that all the corrupt politicians, both at government and local level, will continue to skim off their percentage until strong action by the law takes place and these people are sent away for a long time.

As a bystander, it seems to me this country has one of the most inefficient governments in Europe, and things will not get better in the foreseeable future. As one Spanish politician is quoted as saying recently, “The Spanish people work more hours per week than any other nation in Europe, but they also have the lowest productivity!” There has to be a message there. I wonder if anyone will take notice?

A Sick Truth of Modern Britain

Posted in Al Quada, Benefits, Britain, England, Government Spending, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , on 07/06/2013 by floroy1942

Would you believe that the UK Social Welfare System is funding terrorism? Neither would I, but if a report from the Wall Street Journal is anything like the truth, and it seems to be,  the government need to wake up – and quickly!

The WSJ reported that Anjem Choudary, a British-Pakistani receiving £25,000 a year from Social Security, preaches terrorism to his followers, and tells them to take their benefits to fund the jihad. Choudrey is a prominent hate-preacher well known in the UK, and was caught on camera recently praising ‘jihad-seekers’ allowance.’ As he explained to his followers, “The normal situation, really, is to take money from the kafir” (an insult for non-Muslims). “Allahu akbar. We take the money.”

Choudrey is well known as a hater of democracy, liberalism and secularism, and openly demands Sharia Law in the UK. There has to be something drastically wrong with the system for it to support such an’ enemy of the state’. Why do the British tax payers have to support someone who so openly hates Britain and all it stands for?  It is long past due this man had all his benefits stopped, was put on a plane and deported back to Pakistan, or anywhere else that will take him.

The British are extremely tolerant by nature, but this surely goes beyond the pale, especially when you consider that, as the WSJ reports, a British soldier gets a mere £16,000 a year starting salary! £9,000 a year less than this parasite! According to the WSJ “if the reported figure is anywhere near accurate, it would surely be the first time in human history that a society has paid its opponents better than it pays its own“.

He is by far not the only jihadist who lives off the backs of the British tax payer, there are other well known ones like the two Abu’s, Qatada and Hamsa, who have received millions of tax payer money for more than ten years in defence costs against continued attempts by the government to deport  them.  You have to ask: How Many More of Them Are There?
