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

Who said that Magistrates are out of touch?

A Magistrate is facing a disciplinary for calling two yobs in Court, scum

Austin Molloy told the 16-year-old louts what he thought of them as he sentenced the pair for vandalising a cathedral.

(And probably what most other right minded people thought as well)

Mr Molloy, 57, hit out after hearing the yobs daubed racist and sexual graffiti on prayer books and bent a valuable cross out of shape at Blackburn Cathedral, Lancs.

But court clerk Ms Christine Dean jumped up and told the JP, "It is totally inappropriate and unjust for you to use the term absolute scum in the Youth Court.

(Note the use of the word 'inappropriate', the left wing liberal catch all term)

Then the mum of one of the scum lodged a complaint, triggering a politically-correct inquiry that could land him in hot water.

(I bet she didn't do that all by herself)

The JP, sitting with two others in Blackburn youth court, told them: "Normal people would consider you absolute scum." The pair were fined and put under supervision orders.

HM Court Service will conduct the probe, meanwhile Mr Molloy was banned from sitting, but he defiantly insisted the yobs, who have records, "needed to be told off" and said the clerk over-reacted.

(Now, would the court clerk have been quite so 'offended' if these two scum had done the same thing in a Mosque? Thought so)

A new dawn

It looks as if the new Govt will be a Conservative - Liberal coalition. I 'm a bit worried about the liberal side of the partnership. If there is anything that this country does NOT need it is more political correctness and a further softening of attitudes and values.

I hope the DC and his cabinet colleagues can hold it all together without having to sell out..... and if he can't we get another election soon.

X marks the spot

This General Election is important. This is our big chance to make things better.
Vote, but vote wisely.

I have just got back from Japan. The volcano meant that I had to spend an extra week there. It was a bit worrying because the original estimate was that it would be 2 weeks.
I am still jet lagged. Whatever time I go to bed, I still wake up at 6 am and think it is lunch time.
At least I am back in time to put my X in the square that will save the country........

Why do we pay too much for fuel?

I have just been to the garage and topped up my 'beast' with petrol. The fuel prices have risen.
Then I read this report in the Khaleej Times, Dubai's English language paper. ...

The price of diesel will rise by nine fils to Dh2.45 per litre in Dubai and Northern Emirates from Thursday.

Dh 2.45 converts to 43p. The Dodge truck in the picture belongs to the Rainbow Sheikh. Not sure what it does to the gallon but he should be able to afford 43p a litre. - And so could we.

Whodunnit - What wassit - Give us a clue

The only thing we can be sure of is that the person formerly known as Jon Venables is back in prison.

What we do not know is,

* His assumed name

* Where he has been living

* If he still represents a risk to children or to anyone else

* What he did that required him to be recalled

* If 'someone' has messed up by releasing him early or not supervising him properly

It has been hinted that a recall which might compromise his anonymity would not have gone ahead unless there were very strong reasons for it. This suggests that he was involved in something serious.

The Home Sec. said that the details would be made public, but M.o.J. Jack Straw does not appear to agree.

We the public rely on the Govt not to release murderers who still pose a risk to the public.

How can we be sure that this has not happened in this case.

How can we have confidence in a system that is not open and honest. Think, he could have been living in your street.........

When we said we wanted to see the back of her...

'.as big as this'

Harriet HARMAN the Minister for Women, who wants pictures of Page 3 girls banned from the workplace to protect the sensitivity of some staff, is an unlikely candidate for 'Rear of the Year'. (Ironic or what)

The Rear of the Year website has already received twelve nominations for her . (Keep them coming. What a laugh if she won)

The Rear of the Year organiser said: "These are not large numbers but a dozen nominations in one week usually indicates encouragement on a fan-based website or an organised group effort of some kind.

There is no truth in the rumour that Nulabor's 'Things can only get better' anthem has been replaced by this......

I have been listening to the debate about the 'torture' of Binyam Mohammed.

We all know that torture is wrong, but could it ever be justified to achieve greater ends?

For instance putting a terrorist in shackles and depriving him sleep would seem a small price to pay to prevent your nearest and dearest from being bombed to bits in a bus or tube train.
......or we could follow the lead of the Spanish Inquisition.

Abu Hamza's holidays

Hate preacher Abu Hamza has begun another expensive legal fight -this time to retain his British passport.
His appeal against a Home Office decision to remove his UK citizenship is expected to cost tens of thousands of pounds. (What a surprise)
This is in addition to the estimated £3.5million the fanatic has already cost the taxpayer, including £1.1million in legal aid.
Home Secretary Alan Johnson says Hamza, who has joint UK and Egyptian nationality, is unfit to keep his British passport. (Well spotted Minister!)
But 51-year-old Hamza claims this is unfair. (He would)
He is currently in a high security jail fighting attempts to extradite him to the U.S. on terror charges.
That case will come before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg later this year. (yawn)
His lawyer, Amanda Weston, told a preliminary hearing of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission that her client wanted the citizenship case heard while he was still in the UK and 'able to participate in proceedings'. (with her getting the legal aid payments)
James Strachan, for the Home Office, said the case should be put off until after the Strasbourg ruling.


1.- Get a big pair of scissors and cut his passport into little bits and refuse to give him a new one .

2.- Repeal the Human Rights Act, or better still make it work for us instead of against us

3.- Make your vote count next time by getting rid of this politically correct crap.

I have just come back from a holiday in Sharm el Sheikh Egypt. It wasa a bit of a saga in that when we first should have gone, the travel company that arranged the flight went bust so did not pay the airline and we got to the air port to find there was no airplane.
It wasn't that we could not get on the flight, the whole flight had been cancelled. The travel agent had tried to ring us that morning (apparently), but we had left early to beat the snow and ice.
Fortunately the travel company managed to give us another holiday a week later, so all was not lost.
However, a day before we were to fly back, it snowed again. We were delayed by a few hours, but we did make it home eventually. The airplane could land but had no where to park and the taxi did not arrive.
But, all in all, it was a great holiday. Swimming in the sea and lounging round the pool. The food was good (they even managed to lash up some cottage pie one day). The people were friendly - and there was no health and safety or political correctness to ruin things....
