Brexit – What An Absolute Mess!

Posted in America, Benefits, Britain, Conservative Party, European Union, Immigration, News, People's Rights, Politics, UK with tags , , , , on 04/11/2016 by floroy1942

The decision was taken by the people of Great Britain to leave the European Union before it totally destroyed us, but now, Gina Miller, a woman obviously looking out for her own business interests, filed a law suit to stop Brexit through the Courts, and won! The big question now is where do we go from here?

On the one hand we have the will of the British people, who by a majority voted that we should leave the Union, and on the other hand, a single business woman, with her colleague hairdresser Deir Dos Santos, who may well have destroyed the whole deal.

To my mind this is not democracy, this is a farce when one woman can stop something that the majority of the nation has voted for. To me it beggars belief. The High Court judges ruled that it should be put to a vote in Parliament before Article 50 is triggered, indicating that the will of the people has no significance.

Theresa May said she would initiate Article 50 in March next year but now, but that is no longer certain. The whole idea could be crushed, because it is well known that a majority of M.P’s are against separation from Europe.  This means that many M.P’s could be going against the wishes of the general public they represent, possibly for their own ends.

As you would expect, this has thrown the whole Brexit idea into chaos. We have to hope that cool heads will rule as this problem progresses, for it has been made known that this case will now be taken to the highest court in the land, and if that fails it will go the the European Court. To be honest, if it goes to the European Court I cannot see any of the judges going against today’s ruling. So despite the wishes of the people in this country, this could turn out to be a long drawn out process that could very well upset the British people’s desire for Brexit.

It is well known that two thirds of M.P’s in the House of Commons do not favour leaving the European Union despite all the plans that Brussels has for us, like forming the United States of Europe under their direct control. Many of them will vote against the idea, and if they win it will put a nail in the coffin of democracy in this nation.

It is a fact that since the referendum, many European countries have begun looking at the idea of leaving themselves. This is evident in Germany after Merkel’s stupid invitation to more than a million immigrants, and also in France, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and many others. People are feeling decidedly unhappy about the number of immigrants that are pouring into the continent from all over the world.

From the beginning the non-elected leaders of Europe have said that Britain must allow free movement of people across our borders if we are to have free trade with Europe. When you consider that the greater majority of immigrants want to come to the U.K. because of our generous benefits system, the country would be literally swamped with migrants all demanding benefits. In many cases immigrants are living a far better life than many of our own workers because of this.

Those immigrants that want to work will be accepting wages far below that of an English worker, and as it is doing now, driving wages down for everybody. If this goes on it will destroy the whole economy of the country.

Theresa May must fight this stupid ruling, or ensure that sufficient M.P’s vote for the Brexit plan, or we are doomed. It is tragic that one stupid woman could bring down an entire country.

In Canada Is It ‘Hello’ Or ‘Bonjour’?

Posted in America, Canada, Equality, Free Speech, Government, Human Rights, Justice, Modern World, News with tags , , , , on 30/10/2014 by floroy1942

Some people are looking for any excuse to make money through compensation claims these days, but this is one of the worst. Canada as we all know is a duel language country, i.e. English and French, and as you would expect, most people speak both. However, one French speaker and his wife actually sued Air Canada because flight attendants did not speak to them in French.

Michel and Lynda Thibodeau took Air Canada to court claiming damages because the crew did not respect their right to be served food and drink in their mother tongue i.e. French. I mean really, this is so bizarre as to be comical. Although both were fluent in English, Mr Thibodeau said the airline employees were: “malicious, oppressive and reprehensible” just because they did not speak to them in French. They also claimed staff spoke to them in English while they were booking in.

Air CanadaThey took the airline to court and were initially awarded £8,000 in damages under Canada’s Official Languages Act. But the story does not end there.

The airline appealed the decision in the Canadian Supreme Court and won. The judge ordered that the airline must officially apologise to the couple and did not have to pay the compensation.

The Thibodeau’s, described as French language ‘extremists’, have tried to get compensation on numerous occasions, one time against the Ottawa Bus Company when a bus driver greeted them with ‘Hello’ instead of ‘Bonjour’ when they boarded a bus.

It seems to me that if they want to be spoken to in French all day every day perhaps they should move to France. I wonder if they would sue an English speaking tourist who asked them the way to the Louvre?

Something To Brighten Your Day

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Canada, England, Europe, Germany, News, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 16/10/2014 by floroy1942

If you are having a dull day, then this is just the tonic you need! Like many people I guess, I too get jokes sent to me through the e-mail so I thought I would share some with you.

The Three Wishes.

A white guy is walking along a beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. Two blonde genies appear, and they tell him he has been granted three wishes. The guy makes his three wishes and the blonde genies disappear.

The next thing the guy knows, he’s in a bedroom, in a mansion, surrounded by 50 beautiful women. He makes love to all of them and begins to explore the house. Suddenly he feels something soft under his feet. He looks down and notices the floor is covered in $100 bills.

Next, there’s a knock at the door, so he answers it! Standing there are two persons dressed in Ku Klux Klan outfits. They drag him outside to the nearest tree, throw a rope over a sturdy limb, and hang him by the neck until he’s dead.

As the Klansmen are walking away, they remove their hoods. It’s the two blonde genies! One blonde genie says to the other, “I can understand the first wish–having all those beautiful women in a big mansion to make love to. I can also understand him wanting to be a millionaire. But, why he wanted to be hung like a black man is beyond me.”

A Driver’s Best Friend?

I have a little Satnav; it sits there in my car
A Satnav is a driver’s friend; it tells you where you are.
I have a little Satnav; I’ve had it all my life
It’s better than the normal ones, my Satnav is my wife.
It gives me full instructions, especially how to drive
“It’s sixty k’s an hour”, it says, “You’re doing sixty-five”.
It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake
And tells me that it’s never ever, safe to overtake.
It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively, just when to intervene.
It lists the vehicles just in front, and all those to the rear
And taking this into account, it specifies my gear.
I’m sure no other driver, has so helpful a device
For when we leave and lock the car, it still gives its advice.
It fills me up with counselling, each journey’s pretty fraught
So why don’t I exchange it, and get a quieter sort?
Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, makes sure I’m properly fed
It washes all my shirts and things, and keeps me warm in bed!
Despite all these advantages, and my tendency to scoff,
I only wish that now and then, I could turn the bugger off.

Naughty, Naughty!

I asked my mam for something to wear and something to play with for Christmas when I was little.

She bought me a pair of pants and cut the pockets out.

Dear Justin Bieber Haters.

Despite his arrest, I still owe my life to Justin. On March 2009 I was in a coma for six months after a car crash. One day my nurse turned on the radio and Justin Biebers music was playing, so I got up and turned it off.

The Best Of British?

A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale hits the Middle East .Two million Muslims die and over a million are injured. Iraq , Iran and Syria are totally ruined and the governments don’t know where to start with providing help to rebuild. The rest of the world is in shock.

The USA is sending troops to help keep the peace.

Saudi Arabia is sending oil.

Latin American countries are sending clothing.

New Zealand and Australia are sending sheep, cattle and food crops.

The Asian countries are sending labour to assist in rebuilding the infrastructure.

Canada is sending medical teams and supplies.

GREAT BRITAIN, not to be outdone is sending two million replacement Muslims.

God Bless GREAT BRITAIN, damn those Brits are smart!!

Now It’s Official – Gays Are More Important Than Religion!

Posted in Arab, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Christianity, England, Equality, Europe, Free Speech, Gays, Homosexuals, Human Rights, Immigrants, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Muslim, Parenting, Political Correctness, Relationships, Religion, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , on 28/02/2011 by floroy1942

I have just read with profound sadness, a report about a Derby England couple who have had their application to become foster parents thrown out of court because of their christian belief homosexuality is a sin.

Mr. & Mrs Johns

The couple, Mr and Mrs Johns, have successfully fostered fifteen children through the 90’s and given every one a good home, but according to the social worker handling their latest application, they cannot be granted another child because they could not tell that child it is acceptable to be homosexual. This is in direct contradiction to their Pentecostal faith, and is a view held by most good christians.

They approached the court to have the Social Services ruling overturned, but were told by the judge Lord Justice Mundy and Mr. Justice Beaton, (Quote): “our conclusions that the attitudes of potential foster carers to sexuality are relevant when considering an application for approval and as to the effect of the decisions of the Court of Appeal in Islington London Borough Council v Ladele (Liberty intervening) [2009] EWCA Civ 1357, and McFarlane v Relate Avon Limited [2010] EWCA Civ 880, we have also concluded that we should not grant permission”.So there it is out in the open at last!

Although the judges stated that no ‘clear evidence’ had been submitted by either side, and I must say I think their lawyer did not do a good job, they stated clearly that it was not a legal question as to the validity of christians to foster children, but more their refusal, on faith grounds, to acknowledge the legitimacy of homosexuality.

But why should a christian be forced to go against their faith by promoting sexual deviance to a child, just so they can act as foster parents?

Talking to reporters outside the court in London Mrs Johns is quoted as saying: “All we wanted was to offer a loving home to a child in need. We have a good track record as foster parents. We have been excluded because we have moral opinions based on our faith and we feel sidelined because we are Christians with normal, mainstream, Christian views on sexual ethics. We are prepared to love and accept any child. All we were not willing to do was to tell a small child that the practice of homosexuality was a good thing.”

‘Mummy’ and Daddy???

It seems that to be a christian with moral values in today’s ‘enlightened’ society, you are less worthy than a homosexual. Your christian beliefs are not worth a fig when even the law turns on you and says  (basically) homosexual rights are more important than yours. This is just another nail in the coffin for right-minded people who believe homosexuality is a sin in the eyes of God, but have no rights under the reverse discriminatory laws that rule our lives.

As with the Penzance hotel couple of a short while ago, See my post:

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2011/01/19/when-human-rights-go-too-far/

the basic rights of a good christian couple have been trampled upon to glorify this base and disgusting practice, which with its current acceptance is destined to corrupt many future generations of children.

I know many will not agree with this statement, but it is my firm belief that due to the current ‘social acceptance’, the numbers of homosexual people in our society will skyrocket in years to come and bring with it many problems.

In the vanguard will be children who have been raised by homosexual couples, for despite what some pundits say, children are extremely perceptive to their surroundings and the home atmosphere, and in my opinion, many will turn out the same for no child can have a normal upbringing under these circumstances.

Experts predict that by 2050 Britain will be a Muslim state, and with the current birthrate of Muslims far outstripping our own, this is a distinct possibility.

I suppose the one good thing Islamization will bring with it is the Muslim hatred of homosexuality, for they make ‘no bones about it’, homo’s are hung without any qualms. When they take over the deviants will be running for the border.

But for today, it is sad when the rights of good, moral christians can be so callously cast aside in a british court to support the ever-increasing demands of a devious minority. May God help us all!

“I Have to Sell My Home to Pay a Thief Compensation”

Posted in Britain, England, Government, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Parliament, Police, Political Correctness, Prison, Theft, UK with tags , , , , on 27/02/2011 by floroy1942

These days the law often gets it wrong, and as usual, it’s the victim who suffers. Such is, in my view, the case with Simon Cremer who recently caught one of his employees stealing from his company. Cremer discovered the thief, Mark Gilbert, had written a company cheque to himself for £845  and decided to hand him over to the police.

Angered at the betrayal of trust, he marched Gilbert to the local police station with a placard around his neck stating his crime. To cut a long story short, all Gilbert got from the police was a caution, which means in effect a ‘slap on the wrist’ and they would take no further action on the case.

A Thief Paraded Down The High Street - Morally Unjustifiable?

Simon Cremer was very surprised to hear later that Gilbert was taking legal action against him for false imprisonment, and seeking compensation for the “stress, humiliation and trauma” he had suffered while being marched down the main street. Cremer wanted to fight the case but was told by his lawyers it would be cheaper to settle out of court. 

Mr Cremer now faces bills totalling £34,000, which include £5,000 compensation for the thief Gilbert, and almost £30,000 in legal fees. When looking at the lawyer fees, one has to ask who the real rip-off merchants are here!  The final result is, Mr. Cremer will be forced into selling his home to pay for this failure of the judicial system.

So, once again we see a common criminal getting the better of the law, and the victim paying the cost. Many say Mr. Cremer should have just phoned the police on discovering the crime, and to a certain degree they are right, but morally speaking, what is wrong with humiliating a thief in public? The man is after all a thief!

Considering the fact the law seems totally incapable of giving criminals the sentences they deserve these days, a little public humiliation may be just what these people need to get them ‘back on track’ in society. Any way you look at it, the current system of locking them up in 5-star hotels doesn’t seem to be working.  

In any event, Gilbert got away scot-free with his crime and is now ‘laughing all the way to the bank’, while the victim will have to sell his home, enduring all the disruption and stress this will cause his family. It just goes to show, the old saying of “Crime doesn’t pay” is totally irrelevant these days.

It is a sad fact of life today that criminals can operate with almost total impunity from the law, and in fact, even turn on their victims at will. You can talk about the ‘Human Rights’ of criminals like Gilbert, but when the law proceeds as in this case, you are saying a thief can manipulate it on moral grounds and the victim has no defence.  The previous labour government was always criticised for being ‘soft on crime’, and it is many of their policies that brought us to this stage.

Including the Victims of Crime???

The upsurge of ‘Human Rights’ and Equality Laws in recent years have seriously damaged society as a whole, and all because the law has lost its ‘moral’ way. As David Cameron commented some time ago, “Britain has become a ‘Compensation Culture’ and must change”. While there are many justified claims for compensation filed in UK courts, these laws are open to abuse by unscrupulous people who milk the system for all they can get. Many are criminals who escape justice completely.

Had I been in Mr, Cremer’s shoes, I think I may well have acted as he did. If, as in this case, there is no doubt whatsoever about the persons guilt, then the action taken by Mr. Cremer is fully justified in my view. I do not find any moral problem in parading a thief down the High Street wearing a placard telling everyone what he has done. It is time the courts accept the fact that if you kill, steal, or assault someone you automatically give up any rights to morally correct treatment and should be treated for what you are, a criminal.

I am tired of hearing of innocent victims being crucified in the courts by thieves and killers who think they have more rights than their victims. It is high time the legal system in Britain was completely overhauled with the power, and moral high ground, taken away from the criminals and returned to the victims of crime. Our only hope is that the Cameron government can see how extensive the breakdown of law and order is in the country and do someting about it. I live in hope!
