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.

I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

Britain Today

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, England, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, UK with tags , , , , on 12/05/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is not what it used to be and the evidence is below:

Daftland

We live in a country called Daftland
The England we knew is no more
Where sensible people do ludicrous things
Or risk breaking some Daftland law.

In Daftland we’ve police dogs with muzzles
Less the villain has cause to complain
And to steal from a shop and say ‘sorry’
Means you’re free with no stain to your name.

You had better leave lights on in buildings
When you lock up and go home at night
’cause the burglars might hurt themselves entering
And there’s no way you’ll be in the right.

When speaking be wary in Daftland
As some terms that you’ve used all your life
Now have connotations unintended
And you’ll end up in all sorts of strife.

We elect politicians in Daftland
To give us the laws of the land
Yet eight laws in ten now come from abroad
The whole thing has got out of hand.

The borders are open in Daftland
And of migrants there’s no keeping track
Just a few of the thousands illegally here
Will ever be caught and sent back.

The exception to this is the hero
Who fought for this land in the war
He’s old and he’s sick, he might cost us a bit
So he’s not welcome here any more.

When the history is written of Daftland
Historians may just recall
That the craziest people in Daftland
Were the public who put up with it all.

I received this by email and thought it worthy of sharing because it really hit the ‘nail on the head’.

Britain Is Not What It Used To Be!

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Immigrants, Modern World, News, Teen Violence, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 03/04/2017 by floroy1942

It is a sad fact that the population of Britain have become uncaring to violence on the streets. I read a piece on the news today that proves we have become totally immune to street fights and gangs so long as we are not the victims.

A young asylum seeker was attacked on Shrublands Avenue, Croydon by up to six youths who beat him to a pulp, and what is most sad, is that a crowd of twenty or so people gathered to watch but did nothing to stop it. About half of those who arrived at the scene, instead of stopping it went in and helped the six youths by kicking the the teenager as well. The rest of the people stood watching as the gang of youths beat him and kicked him, mostly in the facial area, until he was gravely injured.

Needlessly to say, the victim ended up in hospital with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain.

Why the attack happened no-one knows, but the most probable cause was because he was a foreigner.

I just cannot understand why so many people gathered to watch, and joined in the kicking while no-one intervened, but stood by and watched the poor youth get half beaten to death.

In my day many of the men who came on the scene would have intervened and put a stop to it, but not today. Today people have a morbid curiosity when such things happen and they like to watch.

So far the police have arrested six people for the beating, but with the law being what it is today, they will probably be let off with a warning, or maybe a few days of community service.

There is no doubt that Britain is not what it was in my day, for such a thing would never have happened, and if it did people would step in to stop it. It is a sad indication of what Britain has become today.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “Hate crime has no place in London, Britain or anywhere else. Our communities will not be divided by those who seek to sow hate. And we will always take a zero tolerance approach to hate crimes of any type. Anyone who witnesses a hate crime should report it to the police immediately.”

Well, let’s hope the Law does its job and punishes these villains severely.

Britain Overcrowded – Wait ‘Til 2030

One Hundred Thousand Muslims Gather In Birmingham UK

The government has turned a blind eye to this massive increase of immigrants for they cannot be seen as racist, but what they do not see is that their policies will eventually give the whole country major problems at some time in the future. There can be little doubt that as the Muslims population grows they will start to take over the Parliament along with county and city councils. Once they do this there will be a steady drift to Islam across the country. It will be sad to see a once famous country, and a previous world leader, end up as a Muslim country.

imagesBut don’t think that Britain is the only country under threat, for the same thing will happen in Germany, France, Holland, Denmark and Sweden among others. The governments of these countries are also letting in a steady flow of Muslim immigrants who are supposed to be fleeing the Syrian war, but most of them are not from that country. It was proven that only a third of all the ‘refugees’ that came to Germany last year were actually from Syria, the most came from Pakistan, Afghanistan and many African countries.

The greater majority live off huge benefits due to the number of children they have, and are sucking the economy dry. As you would expect, those British people who are employed are all paying the cost of this with increased taxes etc. While many of our people are living on the most basic of incomes, these immigrants, especially those with large families, are raking in huge amounts of money every week.

There must come a time when this farce has to stop for the sake of the country. It is time for all the countries of Europe to round up all illegal immigrants and return them to their own countries. They also need to put a stop to the inflow of migrants for the sake of the continent otherwise we will all be in grave trouble. Once the war in Syria is ended they should all be sent back to their own country and not be given permanent residence.

This is the only way to stop the rot that has set in and prevent Europe from becoming a Muslim land in the future. God help us all.

“All That Is Required For The Triumph Of Evil, Is For Good Men To Do Nothing”

Posted in Arab, Britain, Christianity, Free Speech, Human Rights, Immigrants, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Obama, President, Religion, Sharia Law, Terrorism, Terrorists, UK with tags , , , , , , , , on 22/08/2010 by floroy1942

If you are one of those who doubts the sheer barbarity of Islamic Sharia Law, read on.

News reports this last week have uncovered attempts by a Saudi judge to inflict on a defendant one of the most inhuman punishments of modern times.

The criminal in question had previously been found guilty of a cleaver attack on 22 year-old Abdul-Aziz al Mutairi which left him minus a foot, and paralysed. The attacker had already served half of a 14 month jail sentence before being released. The shortening of the sentence caused outrage among the victims family who insisted on a more fitting form of justice.

The brother of the victim demanded of the court, in the north-west province of Tabuk,  an equivalent punishment for the crime saying; “There is no better word than God’s word – an eye for an eye”.

For this reason the judge began enquiries at several hospitals to find out firstly; if it was possible to perform spinal surgery on the attacker so as to induce permanent paralysis, and secondly; if any surgeon was willing to perform such an operation.

According to sources, at least one hospital in Riyadh, the Saudi capitol, had declined saying, “it could not inflict such harm”.

Sharia Law is known outside Muslim countries for its barbarity and cruelty, even though most Muslims approve of such practices. In some Islamic countries public beheadings and hangings occur on a regular basis.

Women accused of adultery are stoned to death by a pack of baying dogs who call themselves devout Muslims.

My fear for the young of western nations is that some time in the next 50 years, they will find themselves subject to the same draconian laws, as Muslims slowly but surely increase their influence here and finally take over.

We in the West are terrified of being labelled Islamophobic or racist, and in our society human rights and religious freedom are monuments to our misunderstanding of what Islam is all about.

Meanwhile, the wolf is at the door and will not be denied entry!

It is not difficult to see the growing Muslim influence in western countries. Take for example the plan to build a Mosque at the 9/11 site which has been in the headlines for some time. The politicians, and those in charge of the planning, do not wish to be seen as anti-Muslim and have therefore approved the plan despite what ordinary americans think.

Even President Obama appeared on international TV at a reception for Muslim Americans to say that his country was proud of its religious freedoms and all but said he approved of the plan. As the storm of criticism grew he quickly back-tracked, realising no doubt that he had made a major blunder by trying to appease the Muslim audience.

That is what it’s all about really, we are trying so hard to appease these people who are slowly but steadily eroding our traditions and culture without a shot being fired.

In Britain for example, the Muslim influence in local and national government has reached the stage where pretty soon they will take over altogether, and then what will happen to our precious democracy?

“All that is required for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing”

A saying attributed to Dublin born Edmund Burke (1729-1797) which applies now more than ever before. Unless the western nations, and in particular the people, stand up and be counted we will all live in a Muslim controlled state in 25-50 years time, and with it will come Sharia Law!

I am but one of many small voices crying out from obscurity, hoping the masses will finally wake up to what is happening to our culture, traditions and way of life.

Most people today are not interested in what is happening around them unless it directly affects their secular little lives. If it happens in their street, or directly to them they are up in arms, but outside of that – who cares?

I’m just glad I will be not around to see it, but I fear for my children, and their children as should you, for beware: The bell tolls for thee and thine whether you live in Germany, the USA, Britain Canada or where-ever in the western world.

Is There a Place For the Christian Religion in Gordon’s Britain?

Posted in Britain, Christianity, Demonstration, England, Homosexuals, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Modern World, MP's, Muslim, Parliament, UK with tags , , , , , , , on 06/04/2010 by floroy1942

Gordon Brown the Pious!

This week has seen hypocrisy rise to new heights even by Labour standards. For centuries politicians have lied, cheated, and promised the impossible to get re-elected, and Gordon Brown it appears, is no exception. He used an Easter speech to claim that New Labour were the ‘Good Samaritans’ and the christian religion was the ‘conscience of our country’.

This comes from the leader of a government that has steadfastly eroded christian values and principles over the last 13 years, and turned christians into second class citizens in a christian nation. He and his cronies have consistently side-lined the christian faith in favour of Muslims and homosexuals in a scandalous attempt to woo these people into voting for them.

It was not enough to destroy the principle of christian marriage by allowing deviants to ‘marry’, but also to promote the rights of Muslims over christians in our society.

It has reached the stage where even the wearing of a crucifix as a sign of your faith is punished by the courts because you are making a statement that could be ‘offensive’ to Muslims. People have been threatened with losing their jobs for wearing them, and in the case of two nurses, even for offering to pray for very sick patients.

Homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples are currently allowed to ‘marry’ in a civil ceremony and even adopt children under British Law, but now, with Harriet Harman’s Equality Bill, priests have been put in the firing line because they could now be prosecuted under the Bill for

Reverend Carey

refusing to ‘marry’ same-sex couples in a Church of God. Recently, many prominent members of the Catholic Church and Church of England have accused the government publicly of side-lining christianity in Britain today. They are  not wrong.

It all makes you wonder how even an idiot like Gordon Brown could have the gall to proclaim that New Labour is ‘the Good Samaritan’? With the insidious destruction of faith, the mounting crime, illiteracy and poverty, even he should realise by now that he is ‘reigning’ over Sodem and Gommorah, but no, he either does not want to see it, or is too stupid to realise what he and his party are doing to the fabric of our nation.

Canterbury Cathedral

Britain has been a christian nation for almost two thousand years, but this is in the process of being destroyed by a single government with no conscience, within a decade. It makes me wonder if the UK’s politicians are even british, for no government could utterly destroy that which has stood for more than a thousand years and say they ‘serve the british people’. This great nation, that once stood above all others in the world, that has not been successfully invaded since 1066, that discovered much of the known world and introduced the Industrial Revolution is now on its knees, and is about to be handed over to an immigrant population lock, stock and barrel.

The sad part is, the british people have sat idly by and watched it happen, even condoning it by re-electing these crooks back into power time and again.

How long can this desecration of our traditions, morals and standards continue before people wake up and demand we return to the values we once held so dear?

There is a small indication that maybe the british people are beginning to wake up to the threat posed by the islamification of our country when a demonstration took place yesterday against plans to build a mosque in Dudley the West Midlands.

EDL Supporter

It would appear that after disgraceful protests by a group of Muslims during the return of some of our Afghanistan troops to Luton a year ago, a new body was formed called the English Defence League (EDL). Yesterday 2,000 members demonstrated at the site of a planned mosque in Dudley in reply to a 1,500 strong demonstration by the Unite Against Fascism group (UAF). It would appear from news

UAF Supporters

reports that scuffles broke out when police tried to ‘corral’ the demonstrators. While I do not condone violence of any type, it does appear at least some members of the british population are waking up to the threat posed by the increasing Islamization of our country. It is perhaps a small beginning to the british people taking back their country.

Who knows? Maybe this is only the tip of the iceberg and our streets will see an increase in anti-Islam demonstrations in the future as Muslim influence increases. There may yet be ‘blood in the streets’ of Britain, words incorrectly attributed to Enoch Powell in reference to his famous parliamentary speech of so many years ago. The british people have always been slow to react to danger, but when they do, nothing can stop them, as Hitler found out in WW2.

My only prayer is that it is not already too late, thanks to the traitorous actions of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, and the Labour party.

Roy.


Gordon, You’re So Out of Touch!

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

Praying for a Win?

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

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

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

Edlington Twins

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

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

Habitual Criminal Walid Salem

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

Prisoner Tag

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

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

Outspoken

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

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

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

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

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

David Cameron

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

May God have mercy on us all!

Britain – Land of the Loony’s. Part Two

Posted in Britain, England, Modern World, Traffic, UK with tags , , , , , , on 26/01/2010 by floroy1942

I suppose every country has its crazy stories about Loony’s, but Britain seems to have a monopoly recently. Here are some of the latest gems to come from the ‘Green and Pleasant Land’ news columns.

Newcastle Crown Court recently handed down an eight month sentence, suspended for twelve months, to a woman for having noisy sex. The love-making sessions between her and her husband have been heard regularly by her neighbours, passers by on the street, and even the local postman. Caroline Cartwright was given an ASBO (Anti-social Behaviour Order) by the court last April but admitted she broke it almost immediately. Tests carried out in the neighbours apartment have registered sound levels comparable to a loud conversation in the same room. Mrs Cartwright, while apologising for the disruption has admitted she can’t help it. With the court ruling however, she will be abstaining from sexual pleasure for a period of eight months if further complaints are received.

In Nottingham, a man has been fined, twice, for driving at O miles per hour in a 30 mph zone. Outside his house he has a speed camera from the local police, and when someone goes past above the limit, the number plate reading software latches on to his car which is parked just in front of the camera on the side of the road. As he has nowhere else to park he is stuck with the problem. The local police have apologised and say they will look into the problem.

The American Embassy, more commonly known as Macdonalds, has come under fire for a recent advertising campaign in Britain for confusing English slang for a five pence piece with an English pound. The advert, promoting a ‘Pound Saver Menu’ states “An English pound known as a ‘bob’ ” has caused an avalanche of criticism. The reason being, a  ‘bob’ is five pence, not a pound as supposed by Macdonalds. Calls have been made for the advertisement to be changed or withdrawn, although some people have been asking to pay only the five pence as advertised. Either way, the company has egg on its face for not doing sufficient research. Their view, incorrect as it may be, is that the ‘bob’ while once referred to as five pence is now used for the pound since Britain went decimal with its currency. At least its free advertising!

Two children’s TV presenters were cautioned under British Anti-Terrorism Laws by police in London for running around in flak jackets and utility belts, carrying among other things, hairdryers and fake walkie-talkie radios. The pair, complete with camera crew, were filming an episode of the children’s TV show ‘Toonattik’ when approached by four of Her Majesty’s Constabulary. The officers gave them a warning under The Act.

And to cap it all, last week the Holiday Inn Hotel Chain began offering its guests human bed warmers! A call to Reception will have a male or female (or both) bed warmer come to your room, clothed in a special suit, who will warm the bed to body temperature before you climb in. I’ve had one for years, I call her the wife! Certainly beats the hell out of a hot water bottle.

It’s a wacky world we live in.

Britain – Land of the Loony’s.

If it wasn’t so sad it would be funny! For this post I have chosen five of the most ridiculous stories to come out of the UK this week. Firstly, in Southampton in southern England, a man turned up at the hospital’s casualty department with his penis stuck in a length of steel tubing. The hospital staff could not release it because the situation had caused the man to become aroused thereby enlarging his penis and making it impossible. You really couldn’t make this up!!!! Eventually his penis was freed from the pipe by a very delicate operation carried out by…..wait for it!…..Firemen with a metal grinder!!!!!! When I read this story I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Apparently the man left the hospital without any explanation as to how he got his penis stuck in a piece of pipe.

Ed Balls the Schools Secretary for Great Britain is quoted as saying that primary school pupils (aged 7 to 11) and secondary schools (ages 11 to 16) should learn Mandarin i.e Chinese! His reason for such a statement is that Britain has increasing business ties with China and the business sector needs Chinese speakers. Does this mean that it must become part of the national curriculum and a requirement for all children to learn Chinese?

He is right in one thing, it should be compulsory for all children in English schools to learn a foreign language; but Chinese? It would be far more useful for them to learn French, German or perhaps Spanish. Britain has for decades fallen behind other European nations in the teaching of foreign languages in schools, leaving it up to the pupils to decide. When it comes to languages the British are notoriously lazy.

Britain’s erstwhile Prime Minister Gordon Brown has decreed that poor homes should be given a free laptop and broadband access so the parents can communicate with their children’s school. So Gordon is of the opinion that the tax payer should foot the bill for this, and of course poor parents will immediately get ‘on line’ and follow their offspring’s progress at school. I think it more likely there will suddenly be a glut of laptops being offered at knock-down prices in the local pubs to finance a few more pints of best bitter.

On a more serious note, A family of five bought a house for £285,000 and decided to have it structurally altered and renovated. They moved into a rented apartment while the builders were working. After the Christmas break they went to the house and found a group of Romanian squatters occupying the house. They had changed all the locks which prevented the owner from entering. He went to the Police, and on enquiring as to the legal status of the squatters being in the country was told he was racist. Eventually it turned out that the Romanians had become victims of a black con man who had ‘rented’ them the property. They thought they were legal and had every right to be there, but the black guy was not the owner. It took two weeks for the legal situation to be sorted out, and now, much to the families relief, things are back to normal. The Squatters, they moved into a house further down the street. The con man? He disappeared into a richer puff of smoke.

It has been known for years that Britain needs more jails, and now finally the Labour Government has made plans for more to be built. Britain is way ahead of the rest of Europe when it comes to the size of its prison population. For years, Judges have been given instructions not to send so many felons to jail, no matter how much they deserve it, because the jails are already overcrowded. Prisoners have been released after serving a fraction of their sentence to make room for the next influx of criminals. Many have been hardened criminals who go on to offend again and again after release. For the toe-rags inside for drug dealing, theft and rape etc. they do a tiny fraction of their sentence and then its business as usual.

Strange though it may seem, this plan to build more jails has raised a storm of criticism. Groups, and even MP’s, are decrying the move saying resources should be put into preventing crime, not punishing it. I suppose this means more Miss Goody Two-Shoes talking to hardened career criminals trying to convince them of the error of their ways??? I suppose this means that felons will get more non-custodial sentences while the ‘Goody Brigade’ go to work on them to convince them that it really isn’t ‘nice’ to beat up old age pensioner ladies for the few shillings they have in their purses???? It really is too bizarre for words. These ‘Goody Goody” idiots have done so much harm to the English way of life that they should be put against a wall and shot without the chance of parole. I have always been of the opinion that if a criminal is behind bars, he cannot commit more crimes. If the British Penal System were designed to make incarceration so hard that felons would never want to go back to prison after release (like the old days), that more than anything else would cut the crime rate.

Such a shame, but I think the whole country has gone to the dogs!

Woof Woof!

Britain to Blame for Extremism?

  It emerged today that America is blaming Britain for the rise in Islamic extremism. Leading policy makers in the American administration have accused Britain of being “a menace to the rest of the world” because of its failure to tackle Islamic radicalism within its borders. Is the accusation justified? Most certainly!

For years the British people and government have been pandering to the Islamic minority of the country for fear of being seen as anti-Islamic – Islamophobia.

This sickness has found its way into every facet of British life to the extent that to utter a single word of criticism against Muslims or Islam, means you risk being   branded a ‘racist’, much the same as the sixties and seventies during the rise of ‘Black Power’. English traditions going back centuries are slowly dying out because they may offend the Muslim population.

This criticism of Britain has come to light after the failed suicide bomb attack on a Detroit-bound airliner by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who, it is said, was radicalised in London. For a time, he was president of the Islamic Society at the University College London (UCL) which has been severely criticised for allowing, and even actively encouraging, extremist Muslim preachers to give lectures on campus.

There are many universities in Britain with the same lax attitude towards Muslim extremism, and these places of learning are a fertile recruiting ground for groups like al Qaeda.

Evidence of this can be seen in the atrocities list of the past few years; Omar Sheik who killed Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002 (London School of Economics); Asif Hanif and Omar Khan Sharif who blew themselves up in Tel Aviv in 2003 (King’s College London); Abdullah Achmed Ali leader of the liquid bomb plot in 2006 (City University London), the list goes on. All received an education in British Universities, and all were most certainly recruited there by visiting ‘lecturers’ like Anwar al-Awlaki a well-known radical Yemen-based Imam who has preached on various occasions at UCL among others, and gave spiritual guidance to both the failed Detroit bomber, and the Fort Hood assassin Nidal Hasan.

This institutionalised acceptance of allowing extremist and radical Islamic preachers to openly infect the minds of impressionable young men is beyond doubt a scandal, but all comes under the heading of Islamophobia.

Another accusation, levelled by Marc Thiessen, former speech writer for George W. Bush and Pentagon aide, was that Muslim immigrants into the UK were marginalised, and segregated into ‘ghetto’s’ instead of being integrated into society as in America.

This I cannot agree with for the simple reason that Muslims in Britain do not wish to integrate into British society. They form these ‘ghetto’s’ of their own accord by taking over entire areas, and even towns in their desire to live together as a separate community. This Islamization of towns is an on-going process and results, among other things, in them demanding Muslim schools, and English schools teaching the National Curriculum in Arabic. This is wrong, but symptomatic of the failure of the government to ensure the immigrant population is spread wide across the country. How would Mr, Thiessen feel if Muslim immigrants in the States demanded High Schools taught their children in Arabic?

Charles Allen, a recently retired CIA operative, claimed there is “a lack of assimilation, a great deal of alienation” towards Muslims in Britain, and to some extent he is correct, but not completely.

Tell that to the Muslim men in this film Charlie!

When the immigrant population of Britain and the rest of Europe are ready to admit they should adopt the customs and language of their new country relations will  improve, but instead they demand we change our customs to suit them. If we do not, we are racist.

The lack of willingness to assimilate on the part of most Muslims, coupled with the past failure of successive governments to ensure that ghetto’s were not allowed to form in the first place, has led to a feeling of mistrust by many members of the British population which has of course been crystallised by the terrorist attacks in recent years. The one feeds off the other.

There is much to support the American feeling that Britain has become a ‘hotbed’ of extremism in the world, but the problem has gone too far for a simple solution.

Britain, and indeed all European countries, need to stamp down hard on the  Imams who preach their hatred in the mosques, turning peaceful young men into extremists willing to sacrifice themselves in the name of Allah.

It is also imperative the European Union law enforcement institutions project a more robust attitude towards the threat of terrorism within its borders, and as suggested by the news article, treat the terrorists as enemy combatants instead of just criminals.

However, in the long term it is only the Muslim people themselves who can put an end to this hi-jacking of their Faith for the purposes of terrorism.

May peace come to all – Inshallah!

Its Not Mi Falt I Carnt Spel!

Sum Englysh peeple tooday just carnt spel if there lives dipended on it! And gess wot, exkuses are beeing mayd for them by the peeple whu do the teeching. A lekturer from one of Britans universatys has gon so far as to say wee shud even akcept sum wurds that ar speled badli as an alturnativ speling.

I’m sorry I just can’t keep this up, it goes against every fibre of my body to write so badly. I often read the comments people send in on news stories when browsing the Internet news pages, and I am appalled and shocked when I see the level of illiteracy exhibited by so many writers, and I am not talking about children, but adults.

What is more, it distresses me no end to see the steady decline in written English standards over the decades. It has come to a point now where the majority of people who speak and write good English are foreigners who have English as a second language.

There is currently an article in the Times Educational Supplement written by a Ken Smith, a criminology lecturer at Buckinghamshire New University where he states that commonly misspelled words should be accepted as they are, such as ‘judgment’ for judgement, or ‘truely’ for truly.

In his view, Universities should accept the misspelled words as a viable alternative to the correct one, including all the exceptions to the ‘i’ before ‘e’ rule. My advice chum, stick to criminology!

This basic rule has been around for aeons in the English education system and has withstood the test of time. It is well known there are exceptions to this rule, and for this reason the government of all people is urging schools not to teach it any more.

Bethen Marshall, a senior English lecturer at King’s College London has said; “if you change it and say we won’t have this rule, then we won’t have any rules at all, then spelling, which is already terribly confusing, becomes even more so”. The government document, called Advice for Spelling’ (or should that be ‘Advise for Speling?) has been issued for ‘under-11’s as part of the National Primary Strategy.

This document advises other methods of teaching children spelling, like, would you believe, studying TV listings for compound words!?!?! If the government cannot get its act together, how on earth can they expect the teaching profession, which has been failing students for decades, to pull its collective socks up!

Westminster Endowed Church of England Primary School in Stroud has now gone so far as to stop giving its pupils spelling lesson homework because “the children find it so distressing”. Gloucestershire County Council, responsible for the school, said; “it was entirely up to the school to decide if they wish to use spelling lists”. Its statement went on to add; “It is important to recognise the strengths a variety of approaches can bring”. ‘Atchooo!’ Sorry I just sneezed, I’m allergic to bullshit!

I know personally many Germans, Danish, Romanians, Spanish, Dutch and Italians (Well-a maybe-a not-a the-a Italians-a) who speak, read, write, and spell, better than the average English person! Hell! Even some Americans speak better English than the English! Sorry guys and gals, just kidding!

The decline in standards has gone down to the extent that a government report last year stated, 4 out of every 5 children leaving school could not read and write properly.

We are talking about the English language here, the most widely spoken international language on the planet, and England, its birthplace.

The question is, can this problem be fixed? I am afraid the answer appears to be, no definitely not! Part of what is happening is due to the increasing influence allowed, and in some cases encouraged by the government and schools, of the immigrant population.

Some schools reported recently requests to go over to teaching in a foreign language such as Turkish or Hindu, because of the high number of Turkish or inversely, Indian or Pakistani pupils. Why in the name of Heaven should an English school, in England, teach the National Curriculum in a foreign language? It is just too bizaar to believe.

The losers in all this have to be the native English children who are being marginalised in favour of the immigrant population. This is one of the great tragedies of Britain today, but no-one seems to have the eyes to see it.

I firmly believe, and have often stated, that all immigrant children who come to Britain, must learn the language of their adopted home. Britain is the only country in the world that is turning its entire culture and beliefs over to new arrivals. Yes, there is justification for the immigrant population to retain their own culture and languages, but only so long as it does not affect or influence British culture.

Another reason why I think the decline cannot be reversed is simply there are few teachers capable of instructing the pupils in the correct use of the language, and the national curriculum doesn’t provide for better teaching methods. Standards have degraded to such a low level over such a long period of time that many of the educators are lost. The only way forward is to bring back the National Curriculum of 50 years ago, and perhaps, bring all the teachers of that era out of retirement. The only other alternative is to ship all our school age children to Germany, Holland or Denmark to learn the language! It’s all so very sad!
