How Things Have Changed

How Things Have Changed

Much has been said and written on this topic, but eventually everyone must make up their own minds when the subject is put to a vote in 2017. To be honest, I cannot think of a reason for waiting until that date, for it could just as well be done next year, but there again, I am not a politician (thank goodness).

There have been many arguments passed back and forth supporting both sides of the vote, and it is clear that David Cameron is in favour of staying in.

Thanks TONY!

Thanks TONY!

I too can imagine us staying in but on two conditions, (1) that we get rid of the yoke of the Human Rights Charter, and (2) that we decide who we let into the country and not Brussels. Given agreement on these two issues I think it would be beneficial for the country to stay in the E.U.

However, is that likely to happen? Not on yer life! So this means the only other choice left to us is to leave. For far too long the bureaucrats in Brussels have told us what we can and cannot do, and it has to stop.

Yea Right!

Yea Right!

Our Justice system, that has been exemplary for many centuries has become a farce, with murderers among others getting ridiculously short sentences, and we have seen the rise of the ‘Goody-Goody Brigade’ in Britain thanks to the Human Rights Charter, who think for example that even killers have more rights than the victim or the bereaved family. Hell, we cannot even deport immigrant career criminals for crying out loud!

On the other side of things they dictate to us how many immigrants we must let into the country until our benefits system, hospitals and housing are swamped. Meanwhile, our people are not getting the help they need because of this.

They Already Are!

They Already Are!

I certainly do not envy Cameron when it comes time to making the decision for it will be hard, but he must listen to the voice of the people, and it depends on how much they think of the choices open to us and what decisions they make.

Business in the U.K. is divided on the option of going it alone without the E.U., but from reports it is clear that many are changing their minds.

Argument And Counter-Argument

Argument And Counter-Argument

It was reported yesterday that over 1,000 businesses, and donors to the Conservative Party, now back leaving Europe. This comes on top of many high-profile M.P’s also backing the move. It is said that Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith and Chris Grayling, leader of the House of Commons, are most likely to quit rather than support continued membership.

In the beginning the idea of a unified Europe was a good idea, but like all good ideas, it has been taken to extremes where today you cannot even breathe without the E.U. agreeing. It has become too bureaucratic and too powerful for its own good.

Immigration Figures

Immigration Figures

The big question is, if Britain does decide to leave will other nations follow and we see the end of the European Union? That is without doubt a possibility.

Taking immigration as just one example, more and more countries are becoming dissatisfied with the E.U. stance on this subject. Not only Britain, but also Hungary, Macedonia, Italy, Greece and many other smaller nations are being pressured into taking more and more refugees, and the simple truth is, they don’t want to because they can’t!

Where They Come From

Where They Come From

Britain has been told by the E.U. in Brussels that it cannot block the entry of people from other E.U. nations, like Poland among others, who want to come here to work, including Romanian Gypsies. Currently we have over a million Polish working in Britain, and our streets are filled with gypsies begging on our streets. Our countryside is being overrun by ‘travellers’ who move onto any area of open ground, beg and steal from the local inhabitants and leave the land looking like a rubbish tip.

Polish Integrate And Work

Polish Integrate And Work

I applaud the fact that the Polish people come here to work for a living instead off living of our benefits, but the money they make here goes straight back to their families in Poland. And what about all the British people who cannot find a job because the country is overrun by foreign nationals. As for the gypsies, they are a curse wherever they go, but do not confuse them with the real Romanian people who are caring and hard-working.

Something Has To Change!

Something Has To Change!

If as a nation we are forced to accept tens of thousands more immigrants annually the whole structure of the country will collapse. Our unemployment figures are way too high and cannot be sustained, and the money poured into social welfare is rising steadily until it too will be unsustainable.

No-one Will Want To Leave Despite Government Action

No-one Will Want To Leave Despite Government Action

I find it totally unacceptable that immigrants who are granted asylum here are also given British passports, making them British citizens. When the wars in the Middle East and Africa are eventually quelled, none of these people will want to go back home and we will be stuck with them. The government should be issuing temporary visas to these people, not passports that allow them to stay indefinitely. Some immigrants interviewed during a TV report were asked if they would go back home once the trouble was ended, all replied with an emphatic NO!

Open Your EyesAll this will eventually mean the end of the United Kingdom as a Christian country, but can the politicians see it? Can they hell! I am just glad I will not be around to see the demise of this once great country.

At some time in the future this all has to stop, but it certainly won’t so long as we remain part of the E.U. under the current rules.

What To Do About Returning European Jihadi’s

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Human Rights, Insurgents, Muslim, News, Parliament, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 29/09/2014 by floroy1942

Ever since the rise of Islamic State (I.S.), young impressionable European Muslims have been drawn to join the fight in Iraq and Syria by the hundreds. Quite rightly, governments fear the return of these people, for it is well known they have been radicalized by this insurgent group. Some have died fighting the Iraqi army, but I.S. has bigger plans for them, the effects of which will possibly be felt soon.

Many have been trained in the making of car bombs, suicide vests and carrying out other forms of terrorist atrocities. It is clear the intention is for these people to return to their home country and begin carrying out attacks on the public and government institutions. This leaves the European governments with a problem that must be tackled, but how?

Reading comments placed on English news items on the internet, shows that the general public is in favour of revoking their passports and not allowing them back into the country.

The Headline!

The Headline! Concentrate On The Headline Fella’s!

Here are a few samples: “The answer to these idiots is simple. they should be sent back to Syria whether they are British born or not and their passports confiscated, end of problem!” “If they are not dealt with very harshly, it will be a disgrace. I think they should be deported back to live with the killers they were with.” “Just send them back to Syria. Why waste taxpayers money on these traitors. Whatever happened to “You made your bed now lie in it.”

Such actions as those suggested will be fraught with peril however because of the European Human Rights Laws (as usual). Australia can be very glad it is not in the E.U. for the draconian measures they have taken would never be allowed here under European Law. They have no qualms about deporting and revoking the passport of suspected terrorists.

Here in Europe experts are of the opinion that unscrupulous lawyers will defend such people by saying they have not committed any crimes in their home country, and therefore cannot be held or charged.

The Defence Secretary has revealed that at least 69 returning radicals have so far been arrested and prosecutions are being prepared. He said, “Going abroad and fighting with Isil, Isil is a proscribed organisation, so these people are guilty of a criminal offence. And if we can get them into the courts on their return that’s what we will do. We have to put evidence before the court and that’s what is going on now.”

The Home Secretary, Teresa May, is currently busy preparing legislation to tackle this problem which should come into force at the end of November. What form this legislation will take is unknown at this time, but may mean revoking the citizenship and passports of these people.

Last year only 25 such people were arrested, but in the first six months of 2014 the number has risen to 69 so it is clear that the propaganda used by the radical Muslim clerics is working. It is known that at least 500 young British Muslims have been persuaded to fight in Iraq and Syria, and the number from all European countries tops 3,000.

It should be clear that if all 3,000 of these radicalized youth return to their home country and begin a campaign of terror there will be massive casualties, be it from bomb attacks or direct assaults. The countries most affected will be France, the U.K., Holland, Germany and Denmark where the majority originate.

The problem is, there is no legislation to cover this type of event for it has not come up before. It has to be accepted that even terrorists have their rights under European law, even if the laws are wrong in my view. If you take a hard-hearted look at this situation and realize that these are cold-blooded killers with no remorse or pity, then you must surely come to the conclusion that they are not deserving of protection through our laws.

In my opinion, if it is known that certain individuals have attended terrorist training camps or have fought for the I.S. terrorists, then they should be refused entry at the border and their passports revoked. The only way we can protect the British people from terror attacks by I.S. is to stop their killers from re-entering the country.

It must be made known to all that going to Syria or Iraq for the express purpose of joining, or being trained by I.S., will mean they can never set foot in this country again. They all have families here, and the thought of not being able to see them again may be sufficient to stop, or at least slow the flow of  recruits from this country. Many people are of the opinion that once these people are refused entry their families should also be deported.

With the projected aim of I.S. to begin attacks in Europe due to various countries joining the USA in bombing them in Iraq and Syria, it becomes essential  to have some form of legislation in place to stop these people from re-entering the country. Not to do this invites atrocities, like the rumoured attack on the subway system in London and New York.

Tube Train London – An Ideal Target During Rush-Hour!

It is difficult to imagine a rush-hour subway train blowing up in a tunnel, which will maximise the blast and the damage. The casualties could be in the hundreds from just a single bomb. There are of course many other prime targets like the Houses of Parliament or Buckingham Palace for example. If attacked, both would be a huge propaganda coup for I.S.

It is clear the potential targets are wide and varied and to guard them all sufficiently is impossible. For this reason The British government, and those of other involved European countries, must think hard and come up with legislation that will put an end to this threat once and for all! I wish them luck!

Crazy! You Couldn’t Make It Up. Series 1 Episode 7

Posted in Britain, England, Insanity, Modern World, Prison, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 18/04/2010 by floroy1942

Last week has seen a bumper crop of weird news stories. Everything from an actors embarrassing moment, to prisoners making an imaginative escape.

Actor Channing Tatum was rushed to hospital during filming of his latest movie, The Eagle of the Ninth, with a rather embarrassing complaint. Many scenes called for him to wade through ice-cold water, and to protect him from the freezing temperatures a mixture of boiling and cold water was poured into his wet suit. It would seem someone in the film crew forgot to mix the boiling water with some cold to cool it down a bit and poor old Channing ended up getting his manhood severely scolded. Thankfully, after treatment he was, in his own words, “…..back on top, ….back in the game.” He could probably use the same advice I gave to a friend while he was deciding whether to get married or not; ‘Test the waters Old Boy, test the waters!!!”

Administrative bungling by governmental departments are nothing new as we all know, but a case this last week must rank among the top ten. Terence and Marilyn Walker, a retired couple who live in Cheadle Hulme Manchester, both sent their passports away for renewal. When they got them back, Marilyn Walker found the Passport Office had put her husbands photo in her passport! Much has been done to make British passports difficult to forge and various security checks are incorporated, such as holograms, laser dots and complicated watermarks, but it would seem the powers that be did not take into consideration one vital component – human error!!!

Argentinean Prison Officials have a great amount of egg on their faces after it was revealed that two prisoners, Maximiliano Pereyra and Arial Diaz, managed to escape from a top security prison near La Almeda dressed as sheep. It would seem they stole complete skins from a local ranch and after putting them on, along with a realistic looking sheep’s head, mingled with the sheep. Police officials have been quoted as saying that to identify the pair among a herd of a thousand sheep was impossible. Local people had seen the pair running through the fields at night and reported it. An obvious solution to the problem does come to mind. Release a few rams into the flock and grab the two ‘sheep’ that stand up and try to run!!!

An Australian publishing firm made a costly mistake when they printed a cookbook with a ‘minor’ typing error. The book, The Pasta Bible’, contained a recipe for tagliatelli with prawns and proscuitto which called for the adding of ‘salt and freshly ground black people’. It should have read ‘salt and freshly ground pepper’ but the mistake was discovered in time and 7,000 books had to be destroyed and a re-print ordered. That’s what happens when you trust a computer to proof-read something!!!

We all make mistakes, but it becomes extremely annoying when someone else’s error costs you a small fortune. Such is the case with a UK housewife and her electricity company. A Miss Drummond of Brampton in Cambridgeshire recently received an electricity bill for £10,196.59 because the company had been reading her meter wrongly, saying that is what she owed them. Miss Drummond said she had always been careful to check the usage and pay her bills on time, but this floored her. It would seem the company had only been reading four digits on her meter for the previous four years, but when they recently started to read five digits the error came to light. More fool them I say. It’s their mistake they should carry the loss. It wouldn’t be the first time someone got their digits in a mess, ask Channing Tatum!!!

What do you call a butcher without a sharp knife? Answer: A waste of space! But that does not seem to apply to the UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s. A man went into the Penylan store in Cardiff and asked the butcher to remove the bone from a joint of lamb, only to be told that he couldn’t since his boss had told him he could not use a knife because he might cut himself! More Health and Safety madness! The butcher had been cutting meat for thirty years and had taught many of the young butchers how to cut meat but now he could not use a knife. The man went to the information desk and was told it was company policy for the butcher’s own safety. A spokesman for Sainsbury’s said all their butchers got special training on how not to cut themselves but the one in question had not received all the training. So what has he been doing for the last thirty years, slicing meat with his teeth???

An American university professor has gone on record advocating that UFO studies become a university legitimate subject. A lecturer at Niagra County Community College, Professor Phillip Hasely said that there are sufficient unknown and unexplained phenomena to warrant such a step. You can imagine the interview for some high flying job can’t you. Interviewer: “So you went to university did you?” Applicant: “Yes Sir” Interviewer: “What was your degree for young man?” Applicant: Unexplained Flying Objects Sir” Interviewer: “Thank you……NEXT!” Does anyone really believe we have been visited by aliens? I can just imagine the conversation when the explorer got back to the mother ship. “Find anything?” “Nah! Just some sub-culture with illusions of grandeur. Lets go!”

Until next time.

Roy.
