Vengeance is mine saith the Lord

Not sure what burning the Koran will achieve beyond proving that the Taliban don't have the monopoly on fundamentalism.

In my country we.......

Bank Holiday Monday found me enjoying the sun in Brighton. I was the only one. Everyone else it seemed was there to cheer on the English National Alliance/English Defence League, or to boo them, or to make sure that the booing and cheering did not turn physical.

A young Chinese lady approached me and asked me what was happening. I told her it was a demonstration march. She wanted to know who was demonstrating and why.

I explained that the E.N.A. thought that their English culture was being destroyed and that they thought that immigrants were getting treated preferentially when it came to housing and benefits. I explained that whether this was actually true or not was immaterial. The important thing was that people believed it.

Then I remembered that any discussion on the subject of immigration results in cries of 'Racist'. The legacy of 13 years of Nulabor.

In the back of my mind I was thinking that any such demo in China would result in an immediate application of baton and summary arrest on the marchers, counter marchers or both.

I was waiting for her to say, 'In my country we.....'. But she didn't, she was too polite.

Vive la France

President Sarkozy said that illegal Gypsy camps ‘will be systematically evacuated’.

He also pushed for a change in France's immigration law to make expulsions for reasons of public order easier.

This comes after last week's riot in the small Loire Valley town of Saint Aignan where dozens of gypsies armed with hatchets and iron bars attacked the police station, hacked down trees and burned cars.

The riot erupted after a gendarme shot and killed a traveller who had driven through a checkpoint.

If it had happened in Britain, the IPCC would have a field day

Today, the President was accused of using language with chilling undertones in a country where authorities rounded up Gypsies and sent them to concentration camps during the Nazi occupation in World War II.

(Like many other countries in Europe in the 1930s and 40s)

But at least he is talking about it. Just hope they go East and not across the channel to us.

Day out

The news is that the Yorkshire Ripper could be released from Broadmoor to a less secure unit after doctors reported that his mental health had improved dramatically.
And doctors are never wrong

A tribunal judge has ruled that the ripper should be moved to ‘conditions of lesser security’, where he could even be eligible for day

release. And Judges are never wrong

Some one had better tell him to lose the beard if he wants to avoid being recognised and given a good kicking....

Go to jail

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke launched an attack on the "Victorian bang 'em up" prison culture of the past 20 years.

He warned that simply "banging up more and more people for longer" makes some criminals worse and does not protect the public.

"In our worst prisons, it produces tougher criminals," he said "Many a man has gone into prison without a drug problem and come out drug dependent. And petty prisoners can meet up with some new hardened criminal friends." It now costs more to put someone in prison – £38,000 – than it does to send a boy to Eton.

He has a point even though he has not explained it very well. The prison system we have now does not 'work'. It also expensive.

The prisons must be made drug free, even if that entails some initial extra cost. The benefit will be less addicts on the street

The prison regime must be tougher. The first function of prison is to punish. It should not be like a holiday camp. The prisoners should also be taught basic job skills and basic reading writing and arithmetic. The first part of a sentence should be punishment and the second part rehabilitation.

One good way of cutting the prison population is to make it less of a doddle.

Battle of the Giants?

HUMAN rights lawyer Michael Mansfield launched an attack on the actions of the Israeli Government after aid boats were boarded by Israeli commandos. The QC revealed that he would have been aboard one of the boats, but he had to cancel because of his appearance at a literature festival.

I am just imagining the righteous indignation that would have followed if said QC had been unceremoniously dragged off the boat and thrown into an Israeli prison. The QC would have quickly found out what the rest of us have known for years.

That the UK and a couple of other European countries are the only ones that take any notice of the Human Rights Act or have similar laws

People Power

Residents on a housing estate took to the streets and dug a trench to stop travellers bringing their caravans into a nearby field.

A dozen police cars were called to the estate in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, where scores of residents had taken to a street to stop travellers entering the field. Something of this sort happened in Warwickshire last week.

Government take note, the people are fed up with illegal traveller sites and all that comes with them. Ignore it at your peril
