Demonstrations

Arrest Of A Suspect

We see demonstrations all over the world and it is getting worse. Why are people not happy with what they have? Governments are under pressure to change the way we live and give more money to the poor. It is up to people to make their lives better and get an education so that they can at least earn more money. But this is not an option for they want money without doing anything.

The poor people of the world must make themselves able to do work that will earn them more money, but that is too difficult for them. We all have brains and we should make the most of an education. Some cannot be bothered to study at school and turn to crime to get what they want. Education is the keystone for being successful in the world, but they prefer to rob shops and passers-by on the streets to get money, and very many of them spend it on drugs.

Violent attacks and killings are becoming more and frequent in England, and the police are overwhelmed by the number of those being killed on the streets of London and elsewhere. We are getting close to the number of killings in the United States as we see more and more every day.

All these killings are mostly by teenagers who try to get money from those they have murdered. Unless the police clamp down on such things it will get worse. Some of the killings are because of arguments between rivals, and why should they kill someone because they disagree with them. It is monstrous to consider murdering someone because they do not agree with them. Britain is getting more and more violent day by day and it has to stop.

We should be putting these killers in jail for a very long time but all they get is three or four years in prison. Prison does not change the mentality of these killers in such a short time.

Once we get out of the E.U. we should change our laws to be hard on them for a very long time. Bring back hanging will do the trick, and we will see the number of killings drop drastically. No-one wants to be hanged for killing someone on a street or in their own home. Hanging will change the whole of the United Kingdom, and we will see fewer and fewer murders on the streets of our towns and cities.

But first we have to get out of the European Union before we implement this punishment. Once we are free of the European Court of Human Rights and we introduce hanging other countries will follow suit.

The European Union is a farce in this respect for they have banned the death sentence all across Europe. This has led to murders and the only way to stop it is the death sentence. Murderers will be wary of not killing people for fear of the death sentence if they are caught and found guilty.

Once this law has been passed the people can live without fear of getting shot or knifed in their own homes or on the street. Britain will become a safer place as the number of killers dwindles for fear of the death sentence. We only have to hang one or two murderers for it to stop, for all killers will be afraid of what they face.

Time To Shut Blair Up!

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Government, Immigration, News, People's Rights, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , on 16/07/2017 by floroy1942

Tony Blair – Still Trying To Sabotage Britain

Once again Tony Blair is in the news saying that he thinks Brexit should not happen. Its time to shut this man up and put him in prison for what he has done to this country.

No politician in history has damaged this country as much as he has. He took us into the Iraq War, and then proceeded to allow millions of Muslim people into the the country, and look what a mess it is.

He has been in the news today saying that we should forget Brexit. Mr Blair told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge: “I think it’s possible now that Brexit doesn’t happen. I think it’s absolutely necessary that it doesn’t happen because I think every day is bringing us fresh evidence that it’s doing us damage economically, certainly doing us damage politically.”

What he doesn’t realize is that once we are out from under the yoke of the E.U. we will be able to govern our own country without interference from Brussels. The E.U. has caused so much trouble in the U.K. that, for example. we cannot give killers a proper prison sentence anymore. They are released within three to four years and are back on the streets again.

Also, we cannot deport radicals that live among us because of the European Human Rights Council. Once we are free of this institution we will once again be able to make our own laws and deport these people.

The European Union has got so bogged down with every member looking out for their own interests that they have driven our country into the dirt. It is time for this to stop so that we can make our own laws and not be dictated to by Brussels.

There is no doubt that it will take years for Britain to get back to a normal life like we used to have.

Tony Blair said in an article published by his Institute for Global Change that “The European leaders, certainly from my discussions, are willing to consider changes to accommodate Britain, including around freedom of movement. The opposition to free movement of people, once you break it down, is much more nuanced. The French and Germans share some of the British worries, notably around immigration, and would compromise on freedom of movement.”

It is clear that Blair is trying to sabotage the Brexit movement and in my opinion he should not be allowed to enter any discussions on Brexit. He has done enough damage to this country during his twelve years in office and he should be arrested and charged with destroying the British culture and way of life.

Was Brexit a Mistake?

Posted in America, Britain, England, English Schools, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, News, Politics, Prison with tags , , , , on 28/02/2017 by floroy1942

We have seen several politicians, including Tony Blair and John Major, say that separation from Europe under the Brexit deal is a huge mistake. Why? Have these people not learned something from the past years. The British people certainly have, for we have been trodden on by the European politicians and the people of Europe together. Our laws have been changed to suite criminals, and we have seen a flood of migrants from European countries who all came here to make money. Now our country is overcrowded and we have economic difficulties that won’t go away.

I for one back us leaving Europe 100%, for we will be able to control our borders once again and trade with whomever we want around the world. It will also allow us to remove those immigrants who are illegal or have committed crimes. On top of this we will be able to hand out proper sentences for killers without the Human Rights Court interfering and telling us we cannot do that. It is a farce that someone who kills gets a ten year sentence but are back on the streets within three to four years.

We will also be able to have lessons in English in our schools once again instead of Arabic, which leaves our children without a proper education. All immigrants who wish to stay in our country must speak English or be removed.

There are so many advantages to this country on leaving the E.U. and getting our borders sorted out, and a sensible Law System in place like we used to have where killers and rapists are properly punished. Not only that, but we have to deport those immigrants who are solely living off welfare and have committed crimes.

It is without doubt that major changes will be made once Brexit is finalised and the country will be better off.

Brexit Has Won – Thank Goodness

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Canada, David Cameron, European Union, Germany, Human Rights, Immigration, News with tags , , , , on 24/06/2016 by floroy1942

Finally we have got out from under the heel of the German led European Union, I say German led because they exert far more influence on the E.U. than any other nation. For example, which other nation would dare to give an open invitation to immigrants from Syria except Merkel who is now trying to foist them off on other nations within the bloc. I can’t think of one, can you!

Now Britain will be able to decide its own destiny without being dictated to by Brussels, and that has to be a good thing. No longer will the E.U. determine our laws and command our immigration policy as they have done for so many years. No longer will we be paying huge sums of money into the E.U. so they can fritter it away on stupid programmes.

Once the break is finalized we will be able return our nation to a proper system of law, and put an end to the endless stream of immigrants who are sucking our country dry. I long for the day when we gain back full control of our country.

As some have said, it may take two years before we can do that, but I hope our politicians can drastically shorten that time to no more than a year. It is certain that we will go through a hard time in the immediate future, but things will pick up the more we get out from under the yoke of those idiots in Brussels.

Once things have settled down we should get rid of all the immigrants that are causing so much trouble in our land, like the Muslim radicals that preach sedition in the mosques and the Muslim rapists who are selling our children into the sex slavery, plus the thousands of foreign criminals that currently infest our prisons. Without the interference of the Human Rights Commission in Strasbourg we will be able to return to a just and efficient rule of law like we used to have.

We can also get rid of all the immigrants that are sucking the benefit system dry and help those of our own people who need it the most. The last time the government had to hand out food parcels to the poor was during the Second World War.

We will have proper control over who comes into the country, for we can then allow in only those with a skill that we need, and not an entire family of twenty or more who live off benefits.

My only hope is that whoever forms the next government will be strong enough to do these things. It may take a while, but it must be done if Britain is to remain British.

There can be little doubt that Britain has been a beacon for many other European countries for it has been reported that many countries like France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Denmark and many others now want to hold a referendum on staying in the E.U. If that happens I can well see the Union collapsing like a pack of cards.

I don’t think this will be bad thing, for they control far too much in all member states, and the funny thing is, none of those that govern us have been elected! Mind you, as I have said before, their aim is to get complete control of all member states and form the ‘United States of Europe’ with them as the sole government. This means in effect that all national governments will be retired when they take over. In my view, not a happy prospect.

Nearly half of the U.K. citizens voted to stay in the Union, but I doubt they were thinking of how things would be in the future. Most were probably looking out for their jobs. I am just glad that we won.

As to the future government of the U.K., well, that is anybody’s guess. It would seem that Boris Johnson is being hailed as the next Prime Minister after David Cameron’s resignation, although that won’t take place for several months. Whichever way it goes we can certainly see some political turmoil in the months ahead.

But just like the economic and bank rate problems at the moment, all these things will eventually fade into history as the country picks itself up and moves forward, which is something the British are very good at.

Whatever happens in the future, I am sure we will come out of it in far better circumstances than we were under Brussels control.

Don’t Put Your Faith In Polls

Posted in America, Benefits, Britain, David Cameron, Elections, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, News, Politics with tags , , , , on 21/04/2016 by floroy1942

Britain is being hammered by polls at the moment covering the Brexit issue, and to be honest I think they are a waste of time. There have been dozens, and each one gives a different result ending in total confusion for the public. One says the ‘In’ People are winning and another says that the ‘Out’ people are, so what can you make of it. Well, nothing really!

Not Worth A Damn

Not Worth A Damn

It all depends on the size of the poll and where it was carried out. If you go to the heart of London where people are bankers or work for international businesses the answer is sure to be that we stay in. On the other hand if you go to a town in the Midlands the answer may well be that we should leave.

Do you ask 100 people or a thousand, or maybe several thousand, either way the result will be skewed depending on where it is carried out.

Polls in the past have led to some pretty drastic results which have all been nullified when the final results come in. The last election is a prime example where the poll results were turned on their head come election day.

To me polls are a total waste of time because they do not represent the true feelings of the public, and are usually so small as to be totally insignificant.

Leaning The Other Way

Leaning The Other Way

It is up to each individual in the country to make up their own mind and vote as they see fit on polling day. So from this you can gather that no-one will know the final results until they are in on the day of the election. It is important that people do not allow themselves to be swayed by the results of these advance polls, for they are not representative of the true feelings of all the public on this question.

We have our champions for leaving and staying, among them Boris Johnson and the P.M. David Cameron both of whom have their own views. There are of course many others, and it is up to each individual to make their minds up as to what they believe is right.

We hear so much scaremongering among some of the politicians who tell us  that we are heading for a fiscal catastrophe if we leave the union, but I don’t believe any of them.

Let’s face it, for a start we would save £362 million a week if we leave, which is our contribution to the E.U. Fund. It may not sound a lot to some people, but imagine what we could do with that money. As someone said, it would solve all the problems in the NHS! It would also solve a lot of other problems that we are suffering.

Currently A Free Ride

Currently A Free Ride

One of the best things that would come out of a Brexit is that we would once again be able to control our borders, something we have not been able to do since Tony Blair. Our problems do not only concern the immigrants from outside the E.U., but also those from within. We currently have hundreds of thousands of Polish migrants who have come here to work and open up shops etc, and we can add to that Romanians and others who come here to a certain extent to live off benefits.

Imagine what will happen when (a) the visa free travel for Turkey to Europe becomes law, or (b) when Turkey joins the E.U.. We will see hundreds of thousands of Turks moving into Europe, and many will want to come to the U.K. because of our lax benefits programme. Should Bexit become a reality we can at least close our borders and concentrate on getting our current problems sorted out. I am sure that Britain will go through a period of hard times, but we will recover and eventually turn out to be the winners in all this.

What The Papers Have To Say About Strasbourg

What The Papers Have To Say About Strasbourg

Another major advantage will be that we can get rid of the Human Rights commission in Strasbourg  and begin once again to practice the proven efficiency of the British Law System. There will be no more criminals let off because of these interfering idiots in Strasbourg who love to side with killers and criminal immigrants.

The people in Brussels are constantly trying to increase their influence in the running of member countries, for there is little doubt that their final aim is to form a United States of Europe ruled from Brussels. This means that at some time in the future we could see all the governments of every nation put out of business and Brussels makes all the rules and governs each country.

Will This Become The Flag Of All European Nations?

Will This Become The Flag Of All European Nations?

When the E.U. was formed everyone had high hopes of making Europe one of the most successful continents on the planet, but as we have seen over the years, things have steadily got worse, and it will get even more so as more years go by.

So the message is, forget these stupid polls, make you own mind up and don’t be swayed by them. In June we will see who comes out on top, and for myself I hope it is the ‘Leave’ campaign.

France Must Pay Somali Pirates Compensation!

Posted in Britain, European Union, Human Rights, Justice, News, Oceans, Political Correctness, Prison, Somaila, Somali Pirates with tags , , , , on 05/12/2014 by floroy1942

As we all know, the European Court of Human Rights comes out with some really crazy rulings from time to time, but this one really takes the biscuit in my opinion.

Pirates Area Of Operations

Pirates Area Of Operations

For years Somali pirates have been creating havoc among shipping travelling across the Indian Ocean and down the eastern coast of Africa by hijacking them and holding them for ransom from the owners. These ransoms run into millions of Euros each time a ship falls into their clutches, and much of it is used to fund the terror group al Shabaab.

Taking Over

Taking Over

In 2008 pirates held hostage a French flagged cruise ship and later a yacht. They were caught by the French military after the ransoms of $2.1 and $2 million respectively had been paid.

Gotcha!

Gotcha!

Before transferring the pirates to France, the authorities held one group for four days and the others for six days and 16 hours. According to the judges, the time spent in captivity before being transferred to France was sufficient time for charges to be made against the pirates, but the extra 48 hours in custody on French soil violated the pirates’ right to liberty and security under the European Rights Act, the court ruled.

So now the French Government is legally bound to pay one pirate €9,000 and the rest €7,000 each in compensation for the extra 48 hours.

Hostages

Hostages

What an absolute farce the ECHR has become! These were pirates caught in the act with the ‘loot’ on them, so there is no question of their guilt, but the French authorities must pay them compensation because they were not charged immediately they got on French soil.

ECHR - Always Weighted In Favour Of The Criminal

ECHR – Always Weighted In Favour Of The Criminal

To me such decisions make a total mockery of the law. The fact that we have entered an era where the perpetrator has more rights than the victims is to me so cock-eyed as to make the law as it stands a total farce.

I just wonder how long it will take before sanity returns to Europe!

The Veil Controversy

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, European Union, Human Rights, Muslim, News, Religion, UK with tags , , , , on 01/07/2014 by floroy1942

Britain’s government has never been able to solve the problem of Muslim women wearing full-face veils (Niqab) since the controversy began, mainly because we are supposedly hamstrung by the Human Rights and Religious Freedom Laws from Brussels. The big question on everyone’s mind should now be: Why has France been able to pass this law and not Great Britain?

French Muslim Reaction To Ban

French Muslim Reaction To Ban

It has been revealed today that the European Court of Human Rights (CHR) has upheld France’s right to impose a veil ban so our government can no longer use that as an excuse.

In the past we have had cases where Muslim’s charged with an offence have refused to lower their veil in a court of law because of their religion. The problem in one case was eventually solved by the defendant being taken to a private room and identified by another female, but the veil remained in place throughout the trial.

This sort of farce should not be allowed to continue, and Britain must follow France’s example and ban them in all public areas. The above mentioned case against the veil ban was brought by a 24-year-old French woman, who argued that the ban on wearing the veil in public violated her freedom of religion and expression. Her case was thrown out by the court.

The Infamous Muslim Niqab

The Infamous Muslim Niqab

France has about 5 million Muslims and the ban was most unpopular when brought in by Nicholas Sarkozy. But this recent court decision has clearly shown that Muslims can no longer rely on the CHR to get their way, and I must add, about time too!

It is way past time the ban was enforced here with a fine for wearing one in public and a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ rule that sends consistent offenders to jail for three months. The only other answer is: If you can’t live without the veil, move to a Muslim country!

This whole episode indicates that there is nothing to stop the Cameron government from imposing the same ban here in Britain. I do however fear that this will not happen, for the simple reason Cameron is going to need every vote he can get at the next election, and if he bans the veil he will surely lose all the Muslim votes.

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of modern politicians who do not do what is right for the country and its people because they may lose a few votes. It is time they all stepped up to the wire and did what is right for the majority of our citizens, like stopping immigration, kicking out the undesirables, stamping on the benefit cheats and concentrate on getting everyone into work.

The Streets Of Britain

The Streets Of Britain

For far too long this country has suffered at the hands of politicians who are looking out for themselves and to hell with what the people want. If some of the actions they take go against the ‘Rules’ passed down from high and mighty Brussels then tell them to ‘go suck an egg’ (and I kept that polite).

This country needs more politicians with backbone like Margaret Thatcher. Does anyone for one minute think she would have allowed things to get into this state with European Laws? Not on yer life!

May the only veil you see be that of a bride!

The EU Is Now Too Big For Its Boots

Posted in Britain, Equality, European Union, Government, Human Rights, Immigration, Justice, News, Politics, UK with tags , , , , on 30/03/2014 by floroy1942

A news item today confirms to me that the European Union has become too big, too bureaucratic and too powerful. It concerns a demonstration in Brussels Belgium of people demonstrating for separatism. Those demonstrating were from as far afield as Catalan in Spain, Scotland, South Tyrol, and the majority from Flemish Belgium.

Brussels DemonstrationThey were demonstrating for separatism from their parent countries, wishing to control their own destiny instead of relying on government from their nations capital. But it made me think hard about all the rules that are being applied across all member states by a bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels. Slowly, bit by bit, countries have relinquished individual freedoms to these people, and in mine, and I might add many other people’s opinions, it has gone way too far.

Member StatesThe basic concept of mutual defence among the European nations has now reached a stage where all important decisions relating to the governance of a country have been handed over to Brussels. European nations now have to bow to the justice system and the immigration laws as dictated by the nameless, faceless politicians in Brussels. Not only these, but many other policies adopted by governments across the bloc. This has had a catastrophic effect on the livelihoods of the majority of its citizens.

After Ten Years Abu Qatada Is Finally Deported

After Ten Years Abu Qatada Is Finally Deported

Britain in particular has been hard hit by these rules from the EU, in particular concerning justice and immigration. Our laws and justice have been withered away by rules from Brussels, and in particular the CHR in Strasbourg in that we can no longer deport undesirables, and we must release from prison hardened murderers, rapists and pedophiles because we have “infringed on their Human Rights”. As a good example of EU interference, let me remind everybody that it took more than ten years to deport the radical Muslim clerics Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa from our shores after their constant appeals to the CHR in Strasbourg.

Foreign Workers In Britain

Foreign Workers In Britain

On the immigration side we have been forced into accepting people from all over Europe to come and work here, thus taking jobs away from ethnic British which is one reason why we have such high unemployment figures. We have to pay them benefits, which most of them send to their own country, at a time when we are staggering under the weight of millions of immigrants allowed in by the traitor Tony Blair and his corrupt government. Our Social Services are close to collapse, and there is insufficient housing for our own people to the extent where the government has now decided we must build new cities on ‘Green Belt’ land.

Is this country supposed to accept immigrants until the whole country is built on? Perhaps in years to come people will travel from all corners of the country to view the last tree standing in Britain! But at least all the immigrants will have homes to live in!

One thing we should also bear in mind is that the EU is pressing for Turkey to become a member. Should that happen, under the current rules we can expect a flood of Turks coming to Europe to find work. Although most may well try Germany, we can certainly expect more than our fair share, especially with our generous benefits system.

EU Member States

EU Member States

Britain is of course not the only country that suffers under the EU yoke. Germany, France, Belgium, Denmark all have problems with too many immigrants, but many are at least more sensible with the way they give out benefits. Only Britain has officials standing on the docks and at airports waiting to hand out the first benefit payments to immigrants. In countries like Germany for example they have to work for, I believe, five years before they receive any benefits. Also they have taken a stronger stance against the interference from the CHR in Strasbourg. Makes you wonder why we cannot do the same thing. I guess its all down to our weak politicians.

We Give More Than We Recieve

We Give More Than We Receive

I am not advocating that the EU should be scrapped, but there has to be a limit on the power they hold and the amount of interference they can wield in a country’s affairs. They are perfectly capable of representing European countries on the international stage, and of course some form of mutual defence pact is also important, but they have to be stopped from dictating how a country runs it’s internal affairs.

Many believe we are headed for a United States of Europe, but that will probably mean that all power will be yielded to Brussels by all member states. That in my view is a very dangerous precedent.

Equality Versus Christianity

Posted in America, Britain, Christianity, Equality, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, Justice, News, Religion with tags , , , , on 19/03/2014 by floroy1942

One again the issue of human rights versus equality has raised its ugly head. A couple in Wales will take a case to the Strasbourg Court of Human Rights (CHR) to see if the equality laws outweigh religious beliefs. As we all know, everyone has a right to follow whatever religion they choose, but in a few cases the equality laws have stepped in and overridden this basic right.

The Greens - Fighting For Christian Rights And Values

The Greens – Fighting For Christian Rights And Values

I write in particular about a couple in Llandrindod Wells in Wales. Sue and Jeff Green run a guest house and had a spot of bother with the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The complaint concerned the couples web site which advertised their guest house. Apparently, someone had complained to the commission about a line on the site that stated double rooms were “to let for married couples.” The Greens had little choice but to remove the ‘offending’ line and advertise single rooms only. Since then the complaint has been closed.

The Bulls - Leaving The Appeal Court After Losing

The Bulls – Leaving The Appeal Court After Losing

They are devout Christians just like the Hazelmary and Peter Bull who lost a court case and appeal when they refused a room to a homosexual couple in 2008. Their defence was that they were a devout Christian couple and did not rent rooms to any unmarried couples. Of their failed appeal, Lady Hale, deputy president of the Supreme Court, said: “Sexual orientation is a core component of a person’s identity which requires fulfillment through relationships with others of the same orientation.”

What About The Rights Of Religious People

What About The Rights Of Religious People

Following this episode, the Greens now want to determine which has precedence in the eyes of the law, equality or Christian beliefs and human rights. Mr Green said the recent UK equality legislation had “huge implications” for Christians “who want to live their lives according to their beliefs. We have no prospect of success in the British courts so we have decided to take this to Europe. I want to establish whether Christian beliefs and human rights are superseded by equality laws. It seems that recent UK equality legislation is being used to undermine Christian faith and values.”

Andrea Williams

Andrea Williams

I for one can hardly wait for the outcome of this case. It puts this major dilemma slap in the hands of the people who created the problem in the first place. This one bold move will tell us how the courts think about religious beliefs when weighed against the Equality Laws. Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, the legal arm of Christian Concern, said, “It is ironic that the court in Strasbourg seems to understand the nature of Christian faith better than our own courts. Debate over sexual morality has been allowed to become a battlefield and we are concerned about the attempt to clamp down and even exclude Christian beliefs on the issue from public life.”

Our Judges Have 'Lost The Plot'

Our Judges Have ‘Lost The Plot’

It sickens me when I read such stories, because the homosexual population seem to think they can run rough-shod over everyone and everything just be screaming ‘Discrimination’ to the Equality Commission. In Britain in particular judges do not have the ‘balls’ to put a stop to this nonsense. ‘Gay’ parades, ‘gay’ marriage, the adoption of babies, it has all gone too far and all the in the name of ‘equality’.

I see no reason why a devout Christian couple should not refuse a room to an unmarried or homosexual couple if it goes against their religion. But the sad thing is, being a true Christian is becoming outdated, and anyone who still believes is an outcast.

Homosexuals Milking The System

Homosexuals Milking The System

The human rights laws were conceived with noble purpose, but today they are used by homosexuals and criminals (with the help of dubious money-grabbing lawyers) to get what they want, be it right or wrong. The laws have been perverted to such an extent that they protect the undeserving far more than those who really need them.

In my humble opinion, the quicker we get out from under the crushing yoke of Europe’s EHCR and the CHR the better, for then Britain can once again have a set of laws that are sensible and righteous.

Crack Down On Radical Preachers – I Hope So!

Posted in America, Britain, David Cameron, England, Human Rights, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, Sharia Law, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , on 27/05/2013 by floroy1942

It was reported Saturday that David Cameron the Prime Minister is to introduce an initiative to crack down on radical Muslim preachers that are sowing the seeds of hate and radicalism among Muslims in Britain. It is a bold stroke, and way past time such a thing was introduced, but will it be effective? That remains to be seen.

Time To Put These People Out Of Business

Time To Put These People Out Of Business

It really depends on how the system will work, and what action can be taken when such a person is discovered. The whole country knows the saga of two such individuals, Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa who between them have spent more than twenty years ducking the law when we tried to deport them. Abu Hamsa is thankfully gone, now there remains just one. This fact makes it clear that to deport someone with known radical connections is not easy, for the biggest stumbling block is always the Strasbourg Court of Human Rights which meddles in the British Justice system far too much.

The Prime Minister is to set up a task force that will deal specifically with the problem, and its members will be Nick Clegg, George Osborne, Theresa May, Eric Pickles, Chris Grayling, and the Muslim Foreign Office minister, Baroness Warsi. It is anticipated they will look at ways to tackle extremism by producing initiatives on disrupting extremist activity, challenging poisonous narratives, studying trends in radicalization, tackling radicalization in mosques, madrassas, schools, colleges, universities and prisons, and supporting faith and community leadership to build strong, integrated and united communities. Well, good luck with that!

Well, That's Two Less

Well, That’s Two Less

I must admit to having a much simpler method: Firstly, tell the Human Rights Court to go play tiddlywinks (and I put that politely), and then grab those who preach sedition off the street, put them on an RAF plane and toss them out over Libya, Sudan, Yemen or any other Muslim nation (with a parachute of course!). Let them spread their hatred and lies to others of their own kind. Ah ! What it is to dream of real justice – Oh well!

But seriously, I believe we must start by infiltrating the mosques, and where possible making secret recording of these hate preachers, something that can be used in court whereby they can be deported to any country that will take them. Once outside the borders the door slams shut. Eric Pickles was recorded in an interview saying: “Our answer to the extremists and preachers of hate is to speak out, to show them for what they are. That is why the Government’s ‘integration’ strategy focuses on working with people of goodwill to marginalize and outflank the extremists – not only Islamist preachers of hate, but also their malevolent counter-point, the racist English Defence League”.

Labour Sick Joke

Labour Sick Joke

I have to admit that I am not wholly convinced that approach will work, for although the majority of Muslims have come out against extremism in a poll carried out across 39 countries by the PEW Organization in Washington(https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/so-most-muslims-want-sharia-do-they/ refers) I am still not 100% sure they really are against it. I think secretly, many Muslims would be happy to see countries like the UK, France, Holland, Denmark etc. and the USA under the yoke of Islam. I believe the only way to cleanse Muslims in Great Britain is to get rid of the disruptive elements.

Right Reasons - Wrong Approach

Right Reasons – Wrong Approach

I have to admit the inclusion of the EDL in Eric Pickles remark is not surprising, for although their aims have a degree of legitimacy, their methods label them as nothing more than a bunch of thugs looking for trouble. It is hard to separate their behavior from that of the Muslims who demonstrate on our streets for Sharia Law, and tell us ‘Islam Will Rule the World!’ In regard to these people, I feel they too should be rounded up and charged under any law that can be brought against them when they insult our country. Most of them are probably layabouts that our tax money supports anyway. Freedom of speech is a necessary and fundamental right, but it can, and is abused by many Muslims.

It is not surprising that 64% of voters believe we need tougher laws to curb incitement to terrorism, and at the same time, 63% would support the death penalty for convicted terrorists. Now that has to tell you something about the state of affairs in the UK today. It is also interesting to note that 40% would also back the idea of the security services monitoring communications like e-mails and mobile phones. This measure would probably bring about some quick results when the right people are monitored.

He Is At Least Trying

He Is At Least Trying

It is without doubt the biggest problem facing the UK today, and I applaud David Cameron for at least trying to get on top of it. Because the government must always tread carefully and cannot act in the way we ordinary individuals would, it will be an uphill struggle, but at least he is trying, and that is one hell of a lot more than Tony Blair and his band of acolytes did. They put us in this mess in the first place, so I for one am glad that we at last have a government that is trying to address the issue of radicalism in Britain, for it is long overdue.

Is May Right? Should We Ditch The EU Human Rights Laws?

Posted in Al Quada, Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 10/03/2013 by floroy1942

Does Britain need Human Rights Laws? The short answer is definitely – Yes! But the long answer is – not in their current form! Theresa May, the Conservative Home Secretary has recently stated she would like to get rid of the European Human Rights Laws (EHRL) and have a set of British laws replace them. I agree.

Preaching Sedition And Hatred

Preaching Sedition And Hatred

For too long our justice system has been cheated, hampered and bamboozled by unscrupulous lawyers who use these laws to get their guilty clients off. Prime examples are the suspected terrorists, Abu Hamsa who evaded deportation to the USA for ten years, and Abu Qatada, who for more then ten years has used these same human rights laws to prevent deportation to Jordan to answer terrorists charges, and is still in the country.

There have been many such cases, and even those of ordinary criminals who have avoided prison by using the Strasbourg Human Rights Court to their advantage. It has to stop.

The Effect Of Human Rights Laws On British Justice

The Effect Of Human Rights Laws On British Justice

These laws, while necessary to prevent miscarriages of justice through discrimination and outlawing torture etc., are making a mockery of the British Justice System, which until the introduction of the Human Rights Act (HRA) was always considered fair.

Criminals are a lot smarter than they were decades ago, and lawyers have become much more dishonest in my opinion. The lawyers in particular, will use any and every trick in the book to get their clients off, sometimes, even when personally convinced of their guilt, and the HRA is exactly the tool they need.

I do not see how European lawyers based in Strasbourg, can have sufficient knowledge of a British court case in order to make a just judgement. It is known far and wide that the Strasbourg courts are woefully overstretched and cannot spend the necessary time on each case to make a proper decision.

I applaud Theresa May’s stance on this subject and think the move is fully justified, if many years late. Providing the replacement laws are just, and satisfy the legal requirements of both national and international law there is nothing wrong in this.

The only fly in the ointment is that it depends on a Conservative victory at the next election in two years time. The results of the mid-term elections held recently give a swing to Labour, but hopefully we need not read too much into this. A swing in the opposite direction is not unusual in mid-term elections, but we should be wary when the real election comes.

Tony Blair and his band of crooks did more damage to the British nation than any other government in its long history. During their previous term their immigration policies damaged the country to such an extent as to be beyond repair, and I would hope the people remember, and are not stupid enough to want more of the same by voting them back in again.

No Justice Here!

No Justice Here!

It is always difficult when a political party is left with the task of clearing up devastation inherited from the previous government, for it takes time. I will not say that the current Conservative/Liberal Coalition is perfect, not by a long way, but it is clear they are trying to solve the mess left behind by Brown and his Labour assassins. It will however be a long task and we should give them time.

I for one hope the Tories do get in again, if only to see these ridiculous European laws given the boot and replaced with something more sensible. If the other members of the European Union want to moan and groan, let them. Why should we care!

Is David Camerons’ Referendum Idea the Right Approach?

Posted in America, Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, UK, USA with tags , , , on 24/01/2013 by floroy1942

Much has been reported recently about David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, saying he will hold a referendum on EU membership if re-elected in 2015. The question is; is this a good idea, and will the British people make the right decision? Various countries, media outlets and politicians are giving their opinion, but when it comes down to the wire it will be the general public who must decide the future of our country.

The White House

The White House

The Obama administration is already letting their dismay be known and that they are not in favour, saying Britain and the EU will be stronger together, and it has been hinted by some officials that any withdrawal by Britain from the EU could damage relations. The American government see the European Union as a strong military ally in the world, which is not surprising considering the Union’s involvement with America in the world’s trouble-spots. There is fear that the cooperation with America on military intervention, always so stoutly upheld by Britain, will be compromised.

India, and more particular China, have both expressed concern at the thought of Britain leaving the EU because of the massive amount of trade they both do with the Block. The European Union and Chine trade over £840 million per day and they see this as being grossly affected should Britain withdraw.

Abu Hamsa - Protected By The Human Rights Act

Abu Hamsa – Protected By The Human Rights Act

The main gripe the Brits have with Europe is the steady slide of more and more control slipping to Brussels and out of their hands. This is amply demonstrated by the total mess that our Judicial System is in because of interference from the politicians in Brussels. Since the introduction of the Immigration Laws, Human Rights Act and the Health and Safety Laws, which we are bound to follow, we have seen countless criminals getting away with murder because of some clause or other in the Human Rights Act such as Article Eight (the right to family life) which has been exploited by unscrupulous lawyers in Britain. You only have to look at the fact that it took the British Legal System 10 years to get rid of Abu Quatada, and we still haven’t been able to put Abu Hamsa on a plane to face terrorist charges in Jordan.

When it comes to the ‘elf & safety debacle, people have died because rescue services have been forced to follow nonsensical rules when it comes to saving people in distress. As for immigration, laws need to be rewritten so that it is no longer possible for one person to come in and be closely followed by his/her entire family, including uncles aunts, grandparents and grandchildren, all of whom live off the British taxpayer. We need to make sure when a man and his wife and children come in, it stops there! It needs to be made clear to immigrants that if they wish to settle in the UK they must learn the language, and there is a definite time limit to social welfare. In other words, get a job or get out!

Barroso - A Familiar Face

Barroso – A Familiar Face

The main problem with the EU is that with the exception of one or two well-known people like Jose Manuel Barroso, Europe is run by faceless individuals who are not answerable to the people. Does anyone from the general public know who represents our country in Brussels? I doubt that one in a thousand will know. The same problem exists in every European nation, and has led Brussels to be so far removed from the people they may as well be on the moon!

Abraham Lincoln said it better than anyone during his Gettysburg address when he pledged: “The government of the people, for the people, by the people”. It is this line from history that European politicians need to hinder, for to continue in the way they are could lead not only to Britain’s withdrawal, but to the breakup of the whole Union in time.

Open Borders

Open Borders

There are many many good things about the EU and the fact that so many countries can cooperate in the political and military spheres. It is wonderful to be able to travel across borders without all the customs and immigration checks, just as it is great not to have to change currency every time you cross a border. It is ideal that you can go and work in another country without all the hassle we used to have. There is no doubt that the benefits brought to us through EU integration have benefited our lives far more than those we have lost.

However, having said that, the areas outlined above plus a few more need to be relaxed. Judicial and Human Rights jurisdiction needs to be left to the nations and not dictated by Brussels. The national justice system must have a say in who goes to prison and who does not, and who gets extradited and who does not. Nations must decide the rights of its citizens, and the circumstances under which rescue services can save a life, not some faceless bureaucrat in Brussels.

There are of course many other areas of concern to the British people, as there must be in other European nations, but to list them all would turn this post into a book.

UK Exports By Year 1990 To 2006

UK Exports By Year 1990 To 2006

One other major concern that British voters must take into consideration when voting on such an issue is the economic impact. I have read recent reports proclaiming how Britain had most of its trade with Commonwealth nations before we joined the EU. Some seem to think that if we turn our back on Europe we can rekindle this relationship but I think they are dead wrong. Nations like Canada, Australia and New Zealand were suddenly ‘left in the lurch’ when Britain joined the EU and had to scramble to find alternative markets for their goods. These are now well established and it is unlikely Britain can replace its European trading partners with those of the Commonwealth again.

London has over the years become the financial hub of Europe with many major banks and companies having their headquarters in The City. If the British vote ‘No’ to Europe you can bet your last dollar there will be a mass exodus of these companies to somewhere like Berlin, Brussels, or even Amsterdam, and London will become a ghost of its former self. With so many empty office blocks in The City the economy of London will most likely collapse.

The one fear I have is that if and when the referendum takes place, people will vote ‘No’ without thinking of the wider issues. The government cannot expect Mrs. Jones who lives at number 42 to have any idea of the economic consequences of leaving Europe.  It’s one thing to hate the interference from Brussels and shout that you want to be rid of them, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, such a move could spell economic disaster for the country.

It all hangs on how the referendum will be presented, and what questions will be asked of the public. If  the people are given a straight choice of  ‘in or out’ the backlash could be disastrous. On the other hand, if people are also asked which areas of control should be clawed back from Brussels, most will probably vote to stay in and give the government a firm indication of the changes the British want to see.

The British Prime Minister - David Cameron

In my opinion, if the EU is to function as a cohesive element in the world countries have to be given back their national identity and not be told by the Brussels crowd the how, what and when of governing their own people. The politicians in Brussels should concern themselves with international politics, i.e. Europe as a whole, when communicating with the rest of the world.

I believe that the Prime Minster is firmly on the right track, but whatever happens, it is essential that David Cameron gives the general public a full understanding of what is at stake in the referendum.
