More Insane Demands From Brussels!

Posted in America, Britain, Elections, England, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, Politics, Spain with tags , , , , on 05/04/2016 by floroy1942

While the argument rages for voting on leaving or staying in the European Union, I have to say that this latest demand from the Council is extremely aggravating! It would seem that some jackass thought it would be a good idea for every member nation to have the circle of twelve stars that represent the Union on their national flag.

How the E.U. Sees Our Flags.

How the E.U. Sees Our Flags.

Apparently the idea has been floating around since the 1990’s, but with the British ‘Exit’ vote coming up they thought it wise to push it through. They have even had graphic artists draw up designs where the Union flag stars are either in a corner of the national flag of brazenly placed in the middle.

It seems that some of the smaller nations could vote in favour, but the major countries of Europe are dead against it, in particular France Germany and Italy. I do not believe that any country would willingly deface their national flag in such a way. The measure is being heavily pushed through before the British vote on Brexit on June 23, and clearly demonstrates the eagerness of top EU officials to glue the country tighter to the Union.

Claude Boursin, spokesman for the centre-right Partie de Reddition Singe, said: “The tricoleur is a symbol of French courage in the face of adversity – our ‘never surrender’ spirit. It has mythic status in our country and we will never let it be tampered with.” Like Britain, many European countries have a huge amount of history represented in their flag design and would loath to deface it on instructions from Brussels.

UKIP MEP Mike Hookem said: “This whole proposal is an absolute joke. It’s indicative of how insidious Brussels can be, but seriously we’d have to be fools to fall for it.”

But it just goes to show how the idiots in Brussels are trying desperately to gain full control and form a United States of Europe, mostly for their own ends. This could mean that our governments would disappear and all countries would be run from Brussels! Now that’s the best joke I have heard in years!!!!

As we in Europe ‘move forward’ we are in fact going backwards, and are heading for a situation where just a few people will end up running the whole of Europe. Judging by the efforts of those idiots ‘in charge’ so far I am not confident that this would be a good move. In fact it would be a total disaster for everyone.

How Unbelievably Stupid Can Europe’s Politicians Be?

Why Is Europe Run By Idiots?

Why Is Europe Run By Idiots?

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

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

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

Things To Come!

Things To Come!

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

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

When Summer Comes.....

When Summer Comes…..

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

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

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

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

Norway Gang Rape By Muslims

Norway Gang Rape By Muslims

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

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

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

Turkish Shop In Cologne

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

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

No Sharia Law Here

No Sharia Law Here

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

Europe In 2016?

Posted in Britain, European Union, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Politics, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 29/12/2015 by floroy1942
The Swarm

The Swarm

During 2015 more than a million refugees have flooded into Europe from many countries, and due to the impossibility of dealing with such large numbers most will be allowed to stay, even though two-thirds of them are economic migrants. Already this influx has put great strain on the resources of many countries as they try to house and care for them. But what of next year?

We can expect the numbers to drop significantly during the winter, but when the weather gets better in the spring, what then? Experts have already assured us that next year we can expect more than two million to attempt to enter Europe due to the success of so many this year.

Just A Simple Question!

Just A Simple Question!

For most people living in Middle Eastern countries, and others like Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Africa, Europe is the ‘Promised Land’ of opportunity and they will do anything to get here, especially now that Angela Merkel has opened the doors wide, just like Tony Blair did for Britain.

It will be a massive struggle, and a severe drain on our resources to care for all those that have entered this year, but next year, if the experts are right, it may well lead to the total collapse of the European economy and severe hardship for the people.

Pegida in Germany - An Example

Pegida in Germany – An Example

If our people are to have a life in the future this has to stop, for governments cannot support these numbers because there will be intolerable strain on the social assistance resources and there is just not enough jobs or housing for these refugees. Already there have been many instances of demonstrations and acts of aggression by the people against those that have come this year, and if as the experts expect, we end up with another two million next year all hell will break loose.

It is indeed a sorry state of affairs that our politicians do not heed the voice of the people when they know we are against such a thing. I am sure Angela Merkel had no idea of the problems she would cause when she made her rash comment in welcoming all refugees to Germany. Had she sat back and thought about it for even a minute she may well not have said what she did. But unfortunately she did and now the entire continent is in an uproar. She has unwittingly condemned many countries in Europe to a period of extreme hardship as they try to cater for the refugees.

So Happy To Be Here And So Grateful For Our Generosity

So Happy To Be Here And So Grateful For Our Generosity

Personally, I think that unless it is made clear to all nations that we will not accept any more refugees in such numbers, either now or in the future, there will be blood on the streets as the European people react when their anger boils over. What we have experienced so far in the way of demonstrations and attacks will be but a drop in the ocean compared to what is coming.

On the other side of the coin, as their numbers increase the Muslims will intensify their activities to change the face of Europe to be more in line with their way of life. It has been proven that when Muslims reach a certain percentage of the population they will exert more and more pressure on the lives of those that took them in.

After A Short While In The Country No Longer Grateful But Showing Their True Colours

After A Short While In The Country No Longer Grateful But Showing Their True Colours

We see this daily in Britain with their demands for halal food, taking over schools, more mosques, areas of towns and cities with Sharia Law and a total disregard for the British way of life. This will happen in Germany too once they get themselves established, and that you can take to the bank.

With Muslims Next Door To Dress Like This Is Tempting Fate!

With Muslims Next Door To Dress Like This Is Tempting Fate!

In many areas of Britain where they have all but taken over, English women and girls are no longer safe on the streets after dark because rape is condoned by the Qur’an in the Islāmic religion. Some German school headmasters have already warned parents about allowing girls to wear short skirts or see-through blouses on the streets. To many Muslims this is an open invitation.

Muslims Taking Over Entire Towns

Muslims Taking Over Entire Towns

There can be little doubt that in time many things will change within Europe as this new wave of Muslims assert their place in our society. The creep of Islam into European culture is becoming stronger and faster as the years go by, and they are influencing more and more the lives of the European people. The sad thing is, our politicians just do not recognize the dangers associated with it.

If as predicted we see a further two million refugees swarming ashore in Greece and Italy next year, then it will certainly not be long before Islam begins to show its muscles within Europe and the lives of every native will be changed for ever.

Immigrants, Immigrants, Immigrants,

Posted in Benefits, Britain, David Cameron, England, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, News, UK, United Nations with tags , , , , on 15/06/2015 by floroy1942

Just how long is Europe expected to allow these thousands of immigrants in? That is the big question on the lips of the average man in the street. Just about everyone in the European Union, well, except for the politically correct crowd of course, is asking the same question.

Migration Routes

Migration Routes

In recent news Italy is pleading with other states to take in the thousands they are rescuing on a weekly basis, but now France for one has closed its borders to these people.

Italian Ship Rescues Migrants

Italian Ship Rescues Migrants

It is a fact that if we continue to let them in, more will try and make the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea to ‘the promised land’. This year 50,000 have been landed in Italy with 5,800 rescued this last weekend (7/6/15) alone from boats trying to make the crossing, and it is only June. What will the total be by years end?

E.U. Governments are now saying that it is an Italian problem because European Law states that immigrants must be taken in by the first country they reach, in this case Italy. Not withstanding that, Greece is in a similar situation, and we all know what their economy is like!

Benefit Queues

Benefit Queues

It is a simple fact that the European Union cannot, under any circumstances, continue to take in these refugees no matter where they come from. Already the people of Britain are making their objections known in the news columns on the internet. Here is a sample of what people are saying on this problem:

“The only way to stop this issue is to either return them to Africa after rescuing them or if they make it, to have them returned ASAP. At the moment they know that in one way or another they will get to live here, and all the while that message is going back home more will come. It may sound harsh but each one of these people leaves behind a larger family and once one gets here then another 6- 10 will follow. The problem needs sorting at source, in the countries where they come from, these people need to get together and force change in their own countries.” 

“When will the E.U. grow a spine – fair enough stop their boats off shore but land them back where they came from – that’s the only way to break the smugglers take away the destination thence demand – Stop pussyfooting around with the so called do gooders.” 

“So now they are trying to get into France. It’s obvious where they intend to go next. It really is down to Italy to get tough and stop allowing them access. I feel sorry for Italy over this. If they refuse them access they get criticised. Then they get told to keep them if they try to enter France.”

Trying to Reach Spain Across The Gibraltar Staits

Trying to Reach Spain Across The Gibraltar Staits

As you can see, the average man in the street has had enough of this farce, and it is time for European Governments to take some positive action to stop this trade once and for all. All the while the traffickers are getting rich at the expense of these people’s misery, but the only sure way to stop it is to send these people back where they came from until the traffickers realize there is no money in it any more.

It is true that some are real refugees fleeing the fighting in their own lands, but very many are economic refugees who come here to improve their living standards. I cannot fault this, except to say that the numbers are crippling us and there is just not enough work or benefits money for this to continue. Countless numbers of our own people are now living on the bread-line, a situation forced on them by the lack of jobs.

Those Who Must Decide

Those Who Must Decide

The politicians have to be made to realize that we just cannot keep taking these people in, because if we do, the economy will collapse completely, and eventually they will outnumber us when you consider the large families they have.

Already most European economies are in a shaky state with high unemployment rates and the huge cost of benefits and housing for these people. Whether you like it or not, very soon there will be no other choice but to return them. I am aware this will be a hard decision but very soon there will be no choice in the matter.

The Curse Of Our Times - Islamic State

The Curse Of Our Times – Islamic State

Among the comments raised on news articles is something I have said previously on this subject. The rich western nations should do more to improve living standards in African countries so these people have no need to make this perilous journey. The U.N. should also get together a multi-national force to put an end to the terror campaigns of the likes of Islamic State, Boko Haram and al Shebab among others.

It is only when these people, for whom I have the greatest sympathy, can live in peace and prosperity in their own lands that this catastrophe will be truly over.

What Can We Do About The Migrant Crisis?

Posted in Britain, Christianity, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, News, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 20/04/2015 by floroy1942

Once more the death of a host of migrants trying to reach the shores of Europe has hit the headlines. This time approximately 700 people on a small boat have died within 80 miles of the Libyan shore, and what has Libya done about it, well, the answer is once again; Very little! 

Asylum Seekers Make The Crossing 2014

Asylum Seekers Make The Crossing 2014

Lampedusa is a small Italian island 180 miles from the Libyan coast while the closest the Italian mainland comes to Libya is 260 miles, so you have to ask who has the major role in stopping and/or rescuing these people? It should be Libya, but as usual it is mostly left to the Italians to find and rescue those that could be rescued, and to search for the bodies of the missing.

It forces the question, why is Libya not taking a leading role in this dilemma, after all it is in their territorial waters? From their half-hearted interest one would think they are happy that these people are leaving their shores, no matter what the perils. It would seem they have little regard for the lives of refugees.

Sinking

Sinking

In all the stories I have read and seen on the TV News, I have seldom heard of a Libyan boat helping these people when they are in trouble. The Libyan government is doing nothing to stop them from taking this huge gamble, and certainly doing nothing to stop the people traffickers who are operating on their soil.

I for one fail to understand how people as destitute as these refugees can come up with $1,000 to pay the traffickers for the trip. Surely that amount of money would go a long way in their own country. How do they come by it? Admittedly, some are fleeing the violence and are not necessarily poor, but many are.

The Refugee Crisis

The Refugee Crisis

You have to ask why they all want to come to Europe, but really the answer is quite simple. Here they are always allowed in. After a short stay in a refugee camp they are released and receive a home, money to live on, and for the most part, free medical care. So why would they not want to come to Europe? You can cry pity for these poor people as much as you like, but some time it has to stop.

Before I go further, let me state clearly that I can understand the hardships these people have to live under, especially when they are fleeing the violence meted out indiscriminately by Muslim terrorists like Islamic State and al Shebab. But surely they would be better off heading for another Arab land like Bahrain or Saudi Arabia for example. But no, they all want to come to Europe, the land of milk and honey.

Demonstration In Favour Of Refugees

Demonstration In Favour Of Refugees

The Italian government wanted to cut back on the sea patrols to dissuade the migrants from trying to cross, but what happened, storms of protest from other E.U. nations and human rights organizations about the inhumanity of leaving these people to die. What is remarkable however, is that these protests were not accompanied by offers of help, and none of it was directed at the Libyan government! Italy has been left holding the bag and resources are being strained to the limit.

Many European nations have made no effort whatsoever to take in refugees once they land on European shores. Most head for western nations like France, the U.K., Germany and Holland among others. Few are taken in by east European lands by comparison.

If Europe is to continue its humanitarian help to these people then the load has to start being shared by all nations. While it may be up to Italy to provide the help, all other nations should at least bear part of the cost, and Brussels must recognize this quickly.

Time For Action Not More Words

Time For Action Not More Words

But the biggest problem is how to stop the flow of migrants heading for our shores. In my view all the nations of the world need to work together to firstly wipe out the terrorist threat in these countries, and then improve living conditions for the people.

I can already hear you thinking, that is a tall order, but impossible, no!

When the threat of communism struck South Korea in the 1950’s, world powers came together and drove back the North Korean Army when it invaded the south. That was the only time in history that the U.N. fulfilled its role as it was intended to be. Aggression by one nation on another would be met by the unparalleled might of all other nations. Since that time the U.N. has become nothing more than a talking shop resorting to ‘Condemning’ verbally any act of aggression.

The War Is Over!

The War Is Over!

The Korean War was a hard and bloody battle, but democracy won in the end, so who is to say that all nations cannot come together to defeat the Muslim terrorist threat across the world? All it needs is the will, and for the United Nations to get off its fat duff and do something positive for a change.

Think what you may about the Muslim insurrection but it is spreading bit by bit, one country to another, and soon it may be on our doorstep if we ignore it. It is said by experts that if Islamic State manage to take over the North African countries, which they are trying to do, then Europe will be next. Who is to say this is impossible, for we already have in excess of 56 million Muslims living among us, and many show their radical leanings on a daily basis.

All In The Name Of Allah The Peaceful God

All In The Name Of Allah The Peaceful God

Once the terrorist threat is dealt with, the next thing is to improve the living conditions of those enduring difficult circumstances. Again this is work for the United Nations, but why shouldn’t they do something to earn the fat salaries they get?

For countries like Africa the biggest challenge is the effects of global warming which is slowly turning the entire continent into one huge desert. Year on year the Sahara is extending southwards. but the solution is already known.

Environmentalists have for years said that the way to stop the encroachment of the Sahara is to plant a forest of trees across its current limits to bring back the rain.

Saving Africa

Saving Africa – The Tree Line

Impossible I hear you say, but why? There are trees enough in the world to supply the necessary seeds and saplings for planting, and we cannot say we do not have the manpower. The rich countries of the world can also supply water to barren areas of Africa and other places because we have the technology, and the means.

Water Flows Under The Sahara - All We Have To Do Is Reach It

Water Flows Under The Sahara – All We Have To Do Is Reach It

If a united effort were to be made by all countries to supply the necessary equipment and expertise it could be done. Man never knows what he is capable of until he tries! All it takes is the united will of the people and the governments.

By making the homeland of these migrants liveable we can stop this endless flow of refugees to our shores and improve the lives of millions. Worth the effort I would say.

Earth After Man

Earth After Man

I guess that many readers are currently scoffing at these outrageous suggestions, but mankind is under serious threat right now and unless we take positive action soon it will be too late. There is hope for mankind if we all stop thinking of ourselves and share what we have with those less fortunate.

A Man In A Bar:

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

“Well, whatcha’ gonna do about it?” he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

“Come on, man,” the biker says, “I didn’t think you’d CRY. I can’t stand to see a man crying.”

“This is the worst day of my life,” I say. “I’m a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don’t have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my wife with another man… and then my dog bit me. So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop the cyanide capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve knowing I only had 8 hrs left to live and then you show up and drink the whole damn thing! But, Hell, enough about me, how are you doing?”

Sounds Right!
Sounds Right!

You don’t have to be a ‘doggy’ person to appreciate this:

I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local shopping centre and rolled down the car windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air. She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there. I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, “Now you stay. Do you hear me?” “Stay! Stay!”
The driver of a nearby car, a pretty young blonde, gave me a strange look and said, (this is going to hurt read on)
“Why don’t you just put it in ‘Park’?”

The World Economic Crisis

Posted in Benefits, Britain, Budget Cuts, Children, Demonstration, England, Europe, Germany, Government Spending, Modern World, Obama, President, Spain, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , on 06/08/2011 by floroy1942

It will come as no surprise that the ‘times of plenty’ are over. As country after country feels the pinch of growing economic debt, people are taking to the streets to demonstrate about their loss of earnings, and the reductions in social services. Governments are floundering in an ever-increasing spiral of debt as they try to strike a balance between the demands of the people, and balancing the nations budget.

U.S. National Debt

Just today even the mighty United States had its credit rating reduced for the first time in history, and if that has happened, you can bet the world economic crisis is only just beginning.

'The Game' Curse

Part of the problem is, we have had it so good for so many years we have gotten use to it. Instead of the usual holiday to Spain we went further afield, and we could buy an iPad, even though we didn’t really need it. Our living rooms sport a fancy 46″ HDTV because suddenly the old one just wasn’t good enough. The kids all have computers, X-Box and PlayStation games which they spend every waking minute playing. Our homes have become filled with ‘nice to have’ items because we could afford it. But now all that is changed! The people of Greece, Spain, and other countries are out on the streets demonstrating because they do not wish to lose this standard of living.

For sure, there are among them people who find it hard to make ends meet, and in today’s climate they will be hardest hit, but many of those demonstrating are middle-class people who fall into the above bracket. Not one of these well-off earners would for example, voluntarily give up 5% of their salary in taxes to ease the debt crisis and help the needy. They care little if the social services cannot afford to look after poor families, just so long as their standard of living does not deteriorate.

Greece National Debt

We have become so used to our lifestyle of plenty that we do not want to see it slip away, but I have news for you folks: It’s over! There is no way the world economies, especially western ones, can continue to throw money around. National debts are rising day by day and eventually the crunch has to come.

People have to realise they cannot have everything, and many families must wake up to the fact they cannot afford to run three or four cars in the family. As for the exotic holiday to Florida? Forget it! It is not until everyone gets used to the idea that we must all tighten our belts and not expect so much from life, that the crisis will eventually be overcome.

Italian National Debt

Most western nations have become an ‘I want’ culture, and we have become used to doing as little as possible to get what we want. After so many years of plenty it is perhaps time we were brought down to earth, and how hard we hit the ground is up to us really. We all have to realise that times are very hard and it is only by everyone making a sacrifice that we will overcome it.

National Debts Across The World

Get your children used to the idea that you will not be spending huge amounts at Christmas to buy them the lavish gifts they have become so used to. So if you can’t buy a new car and have to spend your next holiday in some place not so far away, don’t complain, accept it as part of your contribution to getting the world economy back on its feet.

Remember, all the people demonstating in the streets on Athens, Madrid and Rome will not get the economy back on its feet. Governments can only spend money they do not have up to a certain limit, and then its time to pay the piper; literally!

Confused about how we got into this situation? The following video will explain it all:

Good Aim Required

One of the funniest stories to hit the news last week concerns a pair of Muslim would-be firebombers who bit off more than they could chew! In May 2008 Amir Ali and a friend tried to petrol bomb a pub in Crawley UK for reasons unknown, when it all went pear shaped. Ali broke the pub window prior to his accomplice throwing the molatov cocktail. Unfortunately the throw was not very accurate and it struck Ali on the back of the head. As the pair fled the scene Ali, dazed from the blow, ran full-tilt straight into a lamp-post. Requiring medical attention he went to the A & E Department at the local hospital which allowed police to link him to the incident. Last week he was sentenced to 8 years. If we have to put up with Muslims attacking us these days its a pity they are not all as inept as these two! I would love to read more news items of would-be suicide bombers blowing themselves up while assembling their bomb!!!

Mogadishu Airport - Not For Tourists!

The customs officials in Mogadishu Somalia were in a quandary this week when their first ‘tourist’ arrived at Mogadishu airport. Mike Spencer Bown, on a round-the-world trip, arrived at the airport on a commercial flight and when asked the purpose of his visit said he was a tourist. As Mogadishu is currently one the most dangerous cities in the world for foreigners, the officials did not believe him. Four times they tried to put him back on the outbound flight and eventually handed him over to the African Union Military Force in the city, simply because they could not believe he was there just for pleasure. “We have never seen people like this man,” Omar Mohamed, an immigration official, said Friday. “He said he was a tourist, we couldn’t believe him. But later on we found he was serious.” He went on; “That makes him the first person to come to Mogadishu only for tourism but unfortunately this is not the right time,” Bown had already visited 160 countries since he sold off his business, and he declared Mogadishu ‘a must’. He actually made it back out of the country alive!!!

You Are Either Too Fat Or You're Having Twins

We all make mistakes but sometimes they are ‘howlers’. Recently, the Norwich University Hospital in Norfolk UK sent a letter to 50 year-old Hilton Plettel that he was pregnant with twins! That Mr. Plettel was flabbergasted is an understatement. An apology was issued by the senior nurse of the hospital, and all Mr. Plettel has to do now is ride the wave of endless jokes aimed his way!!!

I Can't Face Another Appendectomy Without It!

Doctors at the Santa Caterina Hospital in Lecce Southern Italy can’t get through the day without a ‘pick-me-up’, or so it seems. The Director of the hospital is in deep trouble after sending a memo to all doctors asking them to ‘refrain from snorting cocaine’ during working hours. While it seems a fact that some doctors are guilty of the practice, it was deemed incorrect for Giuseppe Di Maria to send out the offending memo. So now he is being raked over the coals and you could still be operated on by a doctor flying on cloud nine!!! Scary!

Try Piecing This Lot Together!

Thankfully, if you happen to put all your money in a shredder by mistake there is someone who can help. This happened to a Taiwanese man called Lin who mistakenly dropped a bag containing T$200,000 (£4,200) into a shredder at his plastic factory. Lucky for him there is a forensic scientist in the Justice Ministry Forensics Department known as the ‘Jigsaw Man’, Lin Hui-Fen. This forensics expert loves puzzles, and after a week of intensive work managed to piece together sufficient shredded money to satisfy the bank that it was genuine and the fortunate Mr. Lin got his money back. I bet the jigsaw man solves the Rubicks Cube in seconds!!!

That’s all for now, But as the crazy stories keep coming, so watch this space. I hope you enjoyed a laugh, I sure did.

The French Roma Deportations – Are They Justified?

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Modern World, Police, Spain, Theft, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 14/09/2010 by floroy1942

For over a week the papers and news bulletins have been loaded with criticism of The French governments deportation of Gypsies (Roma) back to Romania, and now the EU Executive Body has thrown its ten-cents into the pot.

Just Another Sanctimonious Politician

The EU Justice Commisioner, Vivienne Reding called the whole affair “disgusting, and is endorsing legal action against the government of France. My only reaction is to say, she obviously has never had a Gypsy encampment near her home, and neither have any of the rest of them.

I find all this ‘Bleeding Heart’ sympathy for the Gypsies to be naive in the extreme, and am quite sure none of these idiots have ever had any dealings with the Roma population of Europe.

The Traditional Idea of Gypsies

Say what you like about discrimination, but these people are born beggars, thieves and pickpockets and have been the scourge of this continent for hundreds of years. It is only in fairly recent years that the plague has spread to the United States to a much smaller degree. It is a proven fact that as soon as Roma Gypsies move into an area the crime rate rockets for burglary, car theft and pick-pocketing. The police know this, but are powerless to stop it.

Blatant stealing of a laptop:

But by far the biggest targets for Gypsies are tourists in all of Europe’s major cities. Just use the following link to watch a film-clip from YouTube and you will know exactly what I mean. There are dozens more on the page on the same topic.

Report on gypsy children being forced to beg:

Caught on Camera

Madrid has a particularly large Roma community and according to the police, as many as 95% of the children caught committing crimes in the city are from this segment of the community. A favourite sting is for one to distract a customer using a bank ATM while a second will snatch the money as it exits the machine and run. It is a very common crime in Madrid and thousands of unwary victims have had their money stolen from under their noses. One young Gypsy girl told a news reporter she could make €300 in a single snatch. One of the problems with Spanish law is that these children cannot be prosecuted because they are too young and usually handed over to a care centre, which lets them go.

What most of these ‘Goody Goody’ politicians don’t seem to realise is that it’s ordinary people who are the victims of these crooks, not the fancy hierarchy in their ivory towers! It’s people like you and me who have their houses and cars broken into and end up the targets of the pickpockets. I am sure they would change their tune and not be so high and mighty with their fancy principals if they were.

Light FIngers

No matter which way you look at it, the Gypsies are a band of professional thieves and always have been. I have been to Romania myself many times and seen how they operate first-hand, I was even robbed once myself so I know what I am talking about. Children are forced to beg as soon as they are old enough to walk, and forced to steal as soon as they are old enough to run.

Self Explanatory

The one thing that has changed over time is that gangs have in many instances taken over much of the control of the thieving throughout Europe by the Gypsy community. Many now work for bosses still residing in Romania where they live in huge expensive villas. Girls are often kept as slaves by these individuals and put to work as soon as they are old enough.

Those children not connected with the gangs are forced into it by their own parents and/or relatives and have no choice in the matter. The following BBC report should be sufficient to convince even the most sceptical! You will find the BBC video clip most enlightening!

There are misguided individuals among us who think the Gypsies are discriminated against and have no real chance at a normal life, this I can assure you is pure bullshit, at least for the reasons the ‘bleeding heart brigade’ give.

Beggar – A Common Sight

These people have been wanderers throughout their entire history and are such through choice, its as simple as that. The elders will not allow their offspring to attend a school for the simple reason it is more often than not, the children who provide them with their income, and it would force them to stay in one place. You have to remember that thieving is a lifestyle that suits their nomadic life; they move in, take everything of value, and move on before they can be caught.

Whatever you may think of human rights, persecution, discrimination and the like, the Roma love to portray themselves as victims of all these things for the simple reason it gets them what they want.

Modern Gypsy Caravan

As a final note let me say that not all Gypsies are like those portrayed above. I know many in Romania who have integrated into society and are hard workers, many are well educated. To these people I take my hat off for the simple reason they have broken the mould and become constructive and decent members of a modern society no matter in what country they live.

You may or may not be happy about the deportations taking place in France, and which could soon be repeated in Italy, but whichever side of the fence you are on, if you come in direct contact with these people you may well change your mind. I hope for your sake you never do.

The Crucifix – A ‘Human Rights’ Tragedy

Posted in Children, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Modern World with tags , , , , on 05/11/2009 by floroy1942

What is it today about people and ‘Human Rights’? In too many cases, the arguement for human rights is used as an excuse by some, to get their our own way in the face of opposition, or just because they feel like it.

We have pressure groups that will stand beside anyone who thinks they have been wronged, for any reason, and demonstrate on the streets or run into the nearest court.

I read in the news yesterday of perhaps one of the more ridiculous cases brought before the European Court of Human Rights (CHR) in Strasbourg, with an even more ludicrous result.

This court ruled that crucifixes may not be displayed in the classrooms of Italian schools, as a direct result of an action brought by Soili Lautsi, an Italian mother who wants to give her children a secular education.  It reasoned that the practice of “the compulsory display of a symbol of a given confession in premises used by public authorities ….restricted the right of parents to educate their children in conformity with their convictions”. Apparently, the crucifixes also “Restricted the right of children to believe or not to believe”. What a load of cobblers!

This judgement was deliberated on, and delivered, by seven respectable judges in one of the highest courts in Europe. Personally, I think they were idiots!

Italy, as most people know is deeply catholic, and it has been law in the country since 1920 (almost 90 years) for crucifixes to be hung in every school in the land. Britain and many other countries have always had crucifixes in the schools, law or no law!

So here we have a situation where one person has turned tradition and the law of Italy on its head, just because she wants to be different with her children. Funnier still, She actually got awarded compensation of €5000 from the court. (Now we are probably getting to the main reason for the court action; Money!) Her case rested on the fact that her children had to attend a school with crucifixes hanging in every room.

So What!!! I see buses every day but it doesn’t mean I have to be a bus driver for crying out loud!!!

Needless to say, the whole of Italy is up in arms at the ruling, both the politicians, and the people. The Vatican was shocked at the idea of ruling out the crucifix in education, calling the it “Wrong and myopic”, and I must agree. A spokesman at the Vatican, Reverend Frederico Lombardi, said the court had no right to interfere in profoundly Italian affairs, and once again, I agree. He went further, saying, “It seems as if the court wanted to ignore the role of Christianity in forming Europe’s identity…. It is unpleasant that it (the crucifix) is considered a sign of division, exclusion or a restriction of freedom”. Quite right Sir!

Basic human rights are essential, and should be protected at all costs, but when the Barmy Brigade become involved, it sours the milk to such an extent it should be thrown away.

I am sure if one were to peruse the files of the C.H.R there are many more such rulings that do nothing to enhance the cause of human rights. To me this ruling is shameful, and I for one think the Italian Government should tell the court to take their ruling, and shove it where the sun don’t shine (and I cleaned that up!).

In my view, religion in schools is essential as part of growing up. It helps us determine good from bad, and what is acceptable and what is not. I had religious education at school and it never did me any harm, quite the opposite.

Many years ago in Britain, religion along with physical education was dropped from the national curriculum as being unnecessary, and look at how the youth since then has turned out. Today we have for example,  obese drunken louts, and girls, urinating in the streets after an evening of heavy drinking. The saddest part is they see nothing wrong in their behaviour. To them its normal and perfectly acceptable. No-one of the older generation would even consider doing such a thing.

No! I believe Mrs. Lautsi has not done Italy, its people, or its future generations any good with her action. Eventually it could well cascade into the rest of Europe with, as an example, Muslims or some other religious group complaining about any form of religious symbology. Already, some schools no longer have the traditional Nativity Plays for fear of upsetting the Muslim children.


What sad times we live in. Will the insanity never end?

Roy.
