Quote of the Day 12.6.2008: David Davis - The Only Honest, Princpled Man Left In British Politics

"The name of my constituency is Haltemprice and Howden. The word Haltemprice is derived from the motto of a medieval priory, and in Old French it means "Noble Endeavour".
I had always viewed membership of this House as a noble endeavour, not least because we and our forebears have for centuries fiercely defended the fundamental freedoms of our citizens. Or we did, up until yesterday.Up until yesterday, I took the view that what we did in the House of Commons representing our constituents was a noble endeavour because with centuries or forebears we defended the freedoms of the British people. Well we did up until yesterday.
This Sunday is the anniversary of Magna Carta—the document that guarantees that most fundamental of British freedoms—Habeus Corpus.
The right not to be imprisoned by the state without charge or reason. Yesterday this house decided to allow the state to lock up potentially innocent British citizens for up to six weeks without charge.
Now the counter terrorism bill will in all probability be rejected by the House of Lords very firmly. After all, what should they be there for if not to defend Magna Carta.
But because the impetus behind this is essentially political - not security - the government will be tempted to use the Parliament Act to over-rule the Lords. It has no democratic mandate to do this since 42 days was not in its manifesto.
Its legal basis is uncertain to say the least. But purely for political reasons, this government's going to do that. And because the generic security arguments relied on will never go away—technology, development and complexity and so on, we'll next see 56 days, 70 days, 90 days.
But in truth, 42 days is just one—perhaps the most salient example—of the insidious, surreptitious and relentless erosion of fundamental British freedoms.
And we will have shortly, the most intrusive identity card system in the world.
A CCTV camera for every 14 citiziens, a DNA database bigger than any dictatorship has, with 1000s of innocent children and a million innocent citizens on it.
We have witnessed an assault on jury trials—that balwark against bad law and its arbitrary use by the state. Short cuts with our justice system that make our system neither firm not fair.
And the creation of a database state opening up our private lives to the prying eyes of official snoopers and exposing our personal data to careless civil servants and criminal hackers.
The state has security powers to clamp down on peaceful protest and so-called hate laws that stifle legitimate debate - while those who incite violence get off Scot free.
This cannot go on, it must be stopped. And for that reason, I feel that today it's incumbent on me to take a stand.
I will be resigning my membership of the House and I intend to force a by-election in Haltemprice and Howden.
Now I'll not fight it on the government's general record—there's no point repeating Crewe and Nantwich. I won't fight it on my personal record. I am just a piece in this great chess game.
I will fight it, I will argue this by-election, against the slow strangulation of fundamental British freedoms by this government.
Now, that may mean I've made my last speech to the House—it's possible. And of course that would be a matter of deep regret to me. But at least my electorate, and the nation as a whole, would have had the opportunity to debate and consider one of the most fundamental issues of our day—the ever-intrusive power of the state into our lives, the loss of privacy, the loss of freedom and the steady attrition undermining the rule of law.And if they do send me back here it will be with a single, simple message: that the monstrosity of a law that we passed yesterday will not stand."
This must already be one of the greatest speech ever made. It certainly a historic one; a speech that may change the course of British history for the better. Mr. Davis is the heir to Churchill; may he be successful on his quest for liberty.

I Am An Evil Super GENIUS!!!: Chavs' Army

Earlier today, I saw an advertisement from the BBC requesting people to submit their ideas for the new series of one of my favourite Radio Four shows, Dave Gorman's Genius. Never one to pass up a golden opportunity for self-advancement like this, I submitted this politically incorrect but brilliant Genius idea:
Sending chavs abroad to fight our wars.
My Genius idea is to send Britain's chavs abroad to fight in Iraq, Afghanistan and other trouble-spots. This would kill three birds with one stone as not only would it cut crime at home, but the chavs and Al-Qaeda would also wipe-out each other on the desert battlefields.
My Genius idea would save taxpayers billions as chavs wouldn't need uniforms (they're already instantly recognisable by their hooded tops, Burberry and fake bling), high-tech weaponry (as most chavs already carry their own guns, knives, baseball bats and broken beer bottles) or training (as they spend hundreds of hours playing Grand Theft Auto IV and Halo 3 on their X-Box 360s and kill each other for real on the streets).
We could even sell our chavs' services to foreign powers such the United States in their quest to invade Iran, Syria and North Korea in order to bring in some extra revenue for the government.
In conclusion, chavs are cheap, expendable cannon fodder. They would obey orders without question because chavs are either drunk, high on drugs, stupid or all three. It would cut crime at home while simultaneously providing our enemies with an inexhaustible supply of violent, fearless and beer-soaked infidels from council-housing estates to eliminate during their martyrdom missions. The only costs that would be incurred by my Genius idea would be transportation and the government subsiding free beer for chavs to consume at recruitment events across Britain’s council-housing estates.

Poll shows voters don't trust Brown on economy

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown is less trusted than any other major western European leader in being able to steer his country through the global financial crisis, a Financial Times poll showed on Monday.
It was the latest blow to Brown's reputation for economic competence as the housing market faces a sharp downturn amid the international turbulence.
Concern over the impact of the credit crunch is growing and mortgage lenders called on the Bank of England on Friday to increase efforts to ease the impact, warning home loans could halve from last year's levels.
In the Financial Times/Harris poll, 68 percent of Britons said they were "not confident at all" in the ability of the government to steer the country safely through tough times.
In contrast, voter confidence in their government's abilities to ride out the financial crisis was 52 percent in Germany, 51 percent in the United States, 50 percent in France, 43 percent in Italy and 36 percent in Spain.
"Gordon Brown has forfeited his trump card," the Financial Times concluded. "The mantle of economic competence, the ruling Labour Party's most potent electoral weapon, is up for grabs."
Asked if the poll's findings worried Brown, the prime minister's spokesman said: "These are difficult times for the global economy. It is entirely understandable that people are concerned about their well-being."
Brown believes Britain is well-placed to withstand the turmoil. "We were the fastest-growing economy in the G7 last year and the IMF is forecasting for us to be the fastest-growing economy this year," the spokesman said.
A Sunday Times poll showed that Brown, widely admired for steering Britain through a period of uninterrupted growth in his decade as Chancellor, suffered the biggest drop in personal ratings since polls were first taken in the 1930s.
The YouGov poll in the paper showed the resurgent Conservatives on 44 percent with Labour on 28 percent and the centrist Liberal Democrats on 17 percent.
But the biggest blow was delivered in the soundings on Brown's personal ratings -- they have fallen from plus 48 last August to minus 37.
"The collapse is the most dramatic of any modern-day prime minister, worse even than Neville Chamberlain who in 1940 dropped from plus 21 to minus 27 after Hitler's invasion of Norway," the paper said.
The Conservatives pounced on Brown's woes. Shadow Chancellor George Osborne said: "Brown rested his claim to economic competence on three pillars -- stability, prudence and productivity. Those three pillars lie broken."
Brown, who took over from Tony Blair in June last year, does not have to call a national election until 2010 so time is on his side if the global economy recovers.
The leader is holding a breakfast meeting with leading executives and bankers from London's financial district on Tuesday before flying off to the United States where the global downturn is bound to dominate discussions.
He is to meet Wall Street bankers in New York on Wednesday and President Bush in Washington on Thursday.

Venezuela axes "The Simpsons" as bad for kids

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela has forced U.S. cartoon "The Simpsons" off its airwaves, calling the show a potentially bad influence on children, and filled its morning slot with reruns of the beach-and-bikini show "Baywatch."
"The Simpsons" satirical take on a dysfunctional American family had been shown, dubbed into Spanish, on the Televen network at an 11 am slot.
"Today I believe they started broadcasting something else," said a spokesman at Venezuela's broadcasting regulator Conatel. "They were infringing many things in the television and radio social responsibility law."
Conatel said it started proceedings against the morning airing of the show after complaints from viewers.
Televen has replaced the long-running and popular cartoon with "Baywatch Hawaii," late seasons of the "Baywatch" series that made actress Pamela Anderson a household name.
20th Century Fox Television, which owns "The Simpsons" and is part of News Corp, said it was not immediately able to comment on the decision to pull "The Simpsons." The long-running show was once criticized by former U.S. President George H. W. Bush but is now a major U.S. cultural reference.
Many Venezuelan television stations fill their schedules with reruns of old U.S. series and Latin American soap-operas.
What a load BS from Hugo Chavez's Fifth Reich. Besides, I would consider Baywatch to be a far worse and an inferior show than the misadventures of Homer and family.

Quote of the Day 9.4.2008: Terry Insults "God"

How long did it take the fat fucker (or his daughter) to come up with that?!? Perhaps he resents the conservative Mr. Heston for getting up off his backside and doing something to help Dr. Martin Luther King and the cringing black children with their struggle for greater equality and civil rights.

Quote of the Day 7.6.2008

"Fear is good. Fear is what keeps us alive. Fear is nature’s survival mechanism. A little fear instilled into children will prepare them for the realities of life in the real world. The real world is a big bad place and there are people out there who want to do bad things to us—so a little healthy fear keeps us on our toes. A world where we have no fear is a world where we are wrapped in cotton wool and, cosseted by a loving, caring, controlling state, we suffocate to death." - Longrider

Olympic Torch Relay Cut Short

The Olympic torch relay in Paris has been cut short after chaotic protests by anti-China demonstrators.
The flame had already been extinguished four times by security forces after repeated clashes with pro-Tibet and human rights campaigners.
The city's mayor also cancelled a ceremony to mark the torch's passing as officials draped a Tibetan flag over the city hall's facade.
Mayor Bertrand Delanoe announced the cancellation after Green party members of the city council flew the flag.
Thousands of police sent on to the streets to protect the torch relay as it made its way around the city were unable to prevent demonstrators hijacking the event.
The torch had to be repeatedly extinguished amid safety fears caused by the demonstrations and several activists were arrested.
Two campaigners brandishing a Tibetan flag were arrested for trying to bar the torch's path.
And two members of media rights group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) - which disrupted the lighting of the flame in Athens - were held for trying to vault over the security cordon protecting the torch.
A member of the French Greens party had earlier been restrained by police when trying to grab the torch from the first of 80 torch bearers, former world 400m hurdles champion Stephane Diagana.
Several hundred demonstrators waving banners gathered on the Trocadero esplanade, just the other side of the river Seine from the Eiffel Tower, where the relay started.
Three RSF members climbed up the steel tower and unfurled a 13ft flag showing the five Olympic rings turned into handcuffs.
They then handcuffed themselves to the structure more than 200ft in the air.
Sky News Europe correspondent Greg Milam said extinguishing the flame was significant because the torch was supposed to be kept alight on its journey around the world.
"It's supposed to symbolise peace between nations," he said.
"It's clearly a massive blow to the organisers - the demonstrations along the route have had the desired effect."
Similarly chaotic scenes were seen when the Olympic flame was carried through London.
One demonstrator tried to snatch the torch from former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq, while another attempted to put out the flame with a fire extinguisher.
By the time double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes lit a cauldron at the O2 Arena, some 37 arrests had been made.
International Olympic Committee chief Jacques Rogge has expressed concern at the demonstrations but said there was no momentum for a boycott of the Beijing Games.
Tibet's capital, Lhasa, was hit last month by Buddhist monks' protests against Chinese rule.
The demonstrations, which saw many people killed, sparked widespread media attention across the world.
HA! Serve the Chinese commie bastards right!!!

"I believe that 21st century adults do not worry about private sexual matters as long as they are legal and harmless." - FIA President Max Mosley
Mosley makes a fair point. While his actions were certainly immoral and caused emotional distress to his wife and family, they do not warrant any legal sanctions.

Miliband Is Still A Hypocritical Cunt

Why is it that while in the House of Commons yesterday, David "Batshit" Miliband demands that Robert Mugabe respects the will of the Zimbabwean electorate, yet he and his boss won't respect the will of the British people and put the Treaty of Libson to a public vote?!?
Surely, what's good for Zimbabwe is also good for Britain?

Gene Hunt

The excellent speech that Philip Glenister's character gave to Lord Scarman about the future state of policing in the BBC's Ashes To Ashes sums up everything that is wrong with the fascist New Labour regime that is doing it's very best to turn this country into a future North Korea. Adolf Blair and McStalin both promised to be tough on crime and tough on the causes of crimes and they lied. They've robbed money from the middle-classes to fund the degenerate lifestyles of violent drug-addicted criminals, yobs and chav scum and they robbed the money of the wealth-creators to line their own pockets and entrench utter cunts like Harriet Harman, Antonia Bance and Terry Kelly in power.
We, the oppressed masses should lock every MP and peer of the realm up in the Palace of Westminster, release canisters of Zyklon B into the building, and once each and everyone of those fuckers have died, start the political process again from scratch.

Quotes of the Day 27.3.2008

"LEGIS CANTIO CONTRA INEPTOS CRITICOS. (Incantation of the law against inept critics)" - Michel De Notredame

LEGIS CANTIO CONTRA INEPTOS CRITICOS

It looks like someone didn't appreciate my little rant against the attention-seeking media whore in a local rag and wrote in to complain.

It was fascinating to read Sir C4's scatter-gun and ill-informed diatribe against MP Adam Price, Plaid, the European Union, Cuba and Carmarthenshire Council (Carmarthen Journal, March 12).

I trust his BA (Hons.) thesis was better researched and better presented.

Those of us who wish to be citizens of an independent Wales want our own membership of the EU and our own seat at the United Nations.

In this, we follow the pattern set by the Republic of Ireland as one of the most successful and prosperous nations in Europe, yet still independent, because they have embraced the realities of the 21st Century. None of this is anti-English; I am an Englishman who chooses to live and work in this country.

I wonder if Sir C4' has even visited Cuba, toured the country and met the people as I have.

Yes, there is a concentration camp on the island, where people are incarcerated without charge, without trial, and without access to lawyers, and are subject to the torture that is officially sanctioned by Washington. It is the American base at Guantanamo Bay.

If Sir C4' is reluctant to go to Cuba, he could visit Florida where five Cuban citizens, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez and Ramon Labinino, have been imprisoned in Miami for the past nine years, following a travesty of a trial, which had little to do with justice but a lot to do with US politics.

I would be happy to furnish Sir C4', or anyone else, with full details of the plight of the Miami Five, and anything else that may open closed minds.

Philip D Whitehead
Foelgastell
Cross Hands

Oh dear, I've hurt the feelings of a poor little left-wing hippy. Here is my retort:

I would like to thank Mr. Philip Whitehead for his reply (Journal, March 26) to my previous letter (Journal, March 12). I feel honoured and privileged that he took the time to defend the indefensible.

Does any rational person actually believe that the Irish Republic (or Britain for that matter) is at present a truly independent country within the European Union when it has been the openly stated goal of the EU in all it’s guises over the past fifty-one years to bring about a ever-closer economic, military and political union all the continent’s nations? The EU is the fulfilment of Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler’s shared dream of a sinister European Super-state; an Orwellian nightmare that if it is allowed to usurp our time-honoured traditions of liberty and justice, will reduce our human rights and living standards to those of Cuba (or worse still, North Korea).

I am well aware of the harm Guantanamo Bay does to its inmates and America’s reputation as the self-proclaimed leader of the Free World. I’m also sure that Mr. Whitehead would agree with me that American sanctions against Cuba (as well as Iraq and North Korea among others) have been counter-productive, as the political leadership have exploited them to further entrench their power at the expense of the people whilst simultaneously making America the scapegoats for the hardships of the citizenry.

However, despite these serious injustices and the plight of the Miami Five, the crimes against humanity committed by the Castro clan, Ernesto "Che" Guevara and their cronies cannot be overlooked or excused. Cuba viciously represses dissent against the regime, tortures and executes its people (particular minority groups such as homosexuals and until the mid-1990s, Christians) and exported mass-murder and terrorism to Central and South America, Africa and the rest of the Caribbean during the Cold War. I’m also sure that despite the rights or wrongs of what has happened to the Miami Five, they have been treated far better than poor Normando Hernández González and the fifty-eight other journalists imprisoned in Cuba.

It’s for that reason that I wouldn’t want to visit Cuba or any other third-world socialist hellhole like Venezuela, Zimbabwe and China (though I must confess a certain perverse curiosity to pay a visit to the Stalinist museum / death camp known as North Korea). Yet I can understand how hard it is for apologists like Mr. Whitehead to remove their rose-tinted spectacles (circa 1960s) and realise that all the socialist dogma they consumed with their mothers’ milk was a fatal conceit for billions of people during the last century and still is for over a billion souls to this day. He and his ilk have my pity, the organ grinders of tyranny will have to eat the metaphorically lead of my trusty scatter-gun.

P.S.: LEGIS CANTIO CONTRA INEPTOS CRITICOS.

(Incantation of the law against inept critics.)

Brilliant, don't you agree?!? Only a women's reserve team goalkeeper for Romford Hockey Club could get the better of "Mr. Marmite".

Happy Easter

I don't mean to preach, but over two thousand years ago, the greatest human being to walk the face of the Earth willingly sacrificed his own mortal life to save ALL of us from just punishment in the next life because of our wrong thoughts and actions. His death for our salvation is, was and forever will be the greatest gift given to anyone in the history of humankind.
If you are passing by a church or know of Christian-related group in your neighbourhood, please go and join it and give thanks for Jesus Christ's gifts of forgiveness and life after death. Thank You.

Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles

I saw the first three episodes on Saturday and I'm already hooked on it. It's the best television series since Star Trek: Deep Space Nine finished.

The song is "Already Over" by Red.

Roars Of Silence Heard In Rose Hill, Oxfordshire

Despite the scandal of the Home Secretary Jacqui "Smith" Spliff attempting to deport gays and lesbians back to certain arrest, torture and execution in Islamofascist Iran, there is been no word of condemnation against Spliff's actions by the supposedly lesbian Labour Councillor for Rose Hill, Oxfordshire, Antonia Bance.
Could it be that little Miss Bance just doesn't give a damn about LGBT rights? Is she in fact a faux-lesbian?!? Or is it that Antonia cares more about "Working Towards The Führer" than standing up her princples (if she has any, other than the pursuit of absolute power for her tribe). I bet that if it was a Tory or Liberal Democrat Home Secretary that was deporting homosexuals to Iran, we would have had day after day of blog posts from Miss Bance expressing her righteous indignation at the "baby-eating homophobes".
This sort of hypocrisy is a typical play from the Gospel According To St. Terry Kelly. There are two morals to draw from Miss Bance's deafening silence:
1) It's okay to deport homosexuals back to their deaths in Iran and Cuba, so long as it is done by the Labour party.
2) If you're a gay or lesbian fighting against deportation back to a country that will kill you because of your sexual orientation, don't count on any support from Antonia Bance.

Jacqui "Smith" Spliff - A Jew-Hating Racist As Well As A Homophobe

Not content with deporting gays and lesbians back to certain arrest, torture and execution in Islamofascist Iran, our ex-druggie of a Home Secretary has also decided to ban the deputy leader of the Jewish Likud Party from entering Britain.
I hope she gets knocked down by a bus, the bus reserves back over her, then it drives forwards over her crushed corpse again.

Israel Is Evil (According To Terry Kelly)

I sometimes wonder if the infamous Cllr Terry Kelly lives on the same planet as the rest of us. Take this question I asked him for example:
"Are you aware that Israel is the only true democray in the Middle East, surrounded by half-a-dozen Arab and Islamic dictatorships that would love nothing more than finish what Hitler started (not that they would admit to there being a holocaust in the first place)?
Under those circumstances, Israel has every right to defend itself against such aggression."
"I can’t see anything or anyone in the Middle East that comes anywhere near the crimes committed by Israel."
This remark though has me questioning his sanity:
"They are not a good advert for democracy, they are the cause of the problem ."
And Cuba is?!?

Parliament 'is in a grim state'

A former top Parliamentary official has delivered a stark warning that the home of UK democracy is "in crisis".
Mike Granatt, who quit as aide to Commons speaker Michael Martin last month, insisted the institution was in a "grim" state with no "coherent leadership".
The public was "bemused" by the generous allowances given to MPs, but a "circle of denial" within the House was preventing any reform, he added.
Mr Granatt's outspoken intervention came in an interview for BBC Radio 4's Week in Westminster programme.
He resigned as media adviser to the Commons Commission - headed by the Speaker - after unwittingly misleading a journalist over £4,000 in taxi journeys taken by Mr Martin's wife.
"Parliament is like most institutions in a crisis," Mr Granatt said.
"Firstly, they don't quite see what the crisis is, collectively.
"And, secondly, they think that whatever is going on, it can be dealt with in the usual fashion, by the usual means and through the usual channels and that, I think, would be a very damaging self-delusion at this point."
This is what happens when you elect Nazi cunts to power such as Adolf Pasha Blair.

Get Well Soon Maggie!

Baroness Thatcher remained in a stable condition overnight in St Thomas' Hospital, in central London, the hospital said.
The 82-year-old former Prime Minister was admitted to the hospital on Friday night and was said to be undergoing medical checks.
On Saturday morning a spokeswoman for the hospital said: "Baroness Thatcher has remained stable overnight and we have nothing further to add at this stage."
It was reported Lady Thatcher was taken to hospital by car.
Two red Metropolitan Police cars were parked just outside the main entrance of St Thomas' Hospital in Lambeth Palace Road on Saturday morning.
It was not clear whether this or any other extra security was in place for Lady Thatcher.
Lady Thatcher very rarely speaks in public, following advice from her doctors, but she does still sometimes say a few words at private functions.
Friends say she is lucid most of the time but occasionally drifts off in the middle of conversations because of difficulties with her short-term memory.
Earlier this month she urged Conservatives to "hold firm to their beliefs" as she was honoured with a statue at the party's HQ.
Lady Thatcher was prime minister from May 1979 until her resignation in November 1990. She was Britain's first woman prime minister and the first leader to win three elections in a row.

Quote of the Day 7.3.2008

The Price Of Hypocrisy

I have just sent off this letter to two of my local rags:
My friends and I are extremely concerned about the judgement and philosophy of our MP Adam Price. While Mr. Price is to be commended for trying to impeach Tony Blair and for putting Carmarthenshire on the political map, we believe that he seems to be more concerned with developing his own media profile than doing the job he was elected to do and represent us, not himself at Westminster.
Many of Mr. Price’s constituents have found it strange and disappointing that it took him two years to publicly express his opposition to the controversial gas pipeline running though the constituency.
Mr. Price supports his party’s oxymoronic Europe policy, even though it runs contrary to Plaid’s long-term goal of an independent Wales. Does Mr. Price really believe that Welsh lives and issues would be better served in Brussels and Strasburg than they are at present (however imperfectly) in Westminster and Cardiff Bay? An ‘independent’ Wales within the EU isn’t independence at all! Plaid’s policy smacks of anti-English prejudice for it’s own sake rather than a stance based on a conscious, rational process of thought.
Perhaps most disturbingly of all, Mr. Price signed Early Day Motion 982 (February 20) in support of Fidel Castro’s tropical gulag in Cuba. Though Plaid’s leader in Westminster, Elfyn Llwyd’s support for this EDM came as no surprise to me, Mr. Price’s support for an EDM also signed in favour of by controversial figures such as George Galloway and Paul Flynn certain did. Does our MP really believe that liberty and human rights are less important than having supposedly “first-class free healthcare and education provision for the people” and “very good dentistry” as claimed by some other MPs?
Is Mr. Price aware of the plight of journalist Normando Hernández González who has been imprisoned by Castro and his thugs for ‘endangering national security’? Is Mr. Price aware that Mr. Hernández is in poor health, but been denied the right to take up a generous offer of asylum from the government of Costa Rica by his jailers? Is Mr. Price also aware that Cuba jails more journalists than any other nation bar China, with 59 presently in captivity? Would Mr. Price and his Plaid comrades like to see an independent Wales governed according to the Cuban model?!?
It’s ironic that a man that was recently named Gay Politician of the Year and according to his profile on the social networking website “Facebook”, claims to be a Libertarian should give his support for a regime that has outlawed homosexuality and imprisons, even executes gays in labour camps.
Adam Price is not a bad man, but he urgently needs to pay more attention to us, instead his own ego and Elfyn Llwyd, otherwise he may find himself on the dole after the next general election. May I suggest that Mr. Price focus his energies on fighting for a better deal from Carmarthenshire Council, who continue to treat Iori Jones, Trish Breckman, Eddie Roberts and all of us with casual contempt.
I must give credit to FIDO The Dog for some of the background information.

Quote of the Day 4.3.2008: Thinking The Unthinkable - Abolish Income Tax

I love this argument by the new Director of Communications for the Libertarian Party UK and fellow blogger "Devil's Kitchen" Chris "Fuck You All Lefty Cunts, I'm Better Than You" Mounsey:
"The usefulness of income tax is that it was introduced not too long ago and for a specific purpose: to fight the Napoleonic Wars.
It was abolished in 1802, having been in force for three years, and had to be levied again in 1803: again, because hostilities against France recommenced. It was abolished in 1816, a year after we won the Battle of Waterloo, and wasn't levied again until 1841, when Sir Robert Peel reintroduced it.
Peel, as a Conservative, had opposed income tax in the 1841 general election, but a growing budget deficit required a new source of funds.
Or, to put it another way, the government had been so profligate with its funds that it was forced to take more money off the hard-working people of Britain so that the state could continue to expand. Who would have thunk it?—a state, unable to balance its books, shakes down the taxpayers in order to pay for the state's failure. I've never heard of that being done before...
Some people, of course, have said that the state didn't need income tax then because it was much smaller. My reply?
"Exactly.""
Awesome! I love it!! It's simple, logically, popular and effective.

Symonds flattens streaker, faces ban

Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds flattened a streaker who ran on to the field during the second tri-series final against India at the Gabba in Brisbane.
The naked man came off second best after he evaded security and charged towards Symonds while he was batting during Australia's run-chase.
Symonds stood his ground as the man approach and dropped the pitch invader with a rugby-style shoulder charge.
The man was arrested by police and faces the possibility of a fine and a life ban from the Gabba.
Symonds, who briefly contemplated a career in rugby league before he broke into the Australian team, also faces the risk of punishment under the International Cricket Council's strict code of conduct.
The code includes a section banning players from any physical assault of a rival player, official or spectator.
Kudos to Andrew Symonds, the ICC can go fuck themselves if they try to discipline him for doing the right thing.

Quote of the Day 3.3.2008: Paul Flynn Libels Hollywood Actor

Rene Auberjonois as Odo (not to be confused with an Orange Goblin called Peter "Pain In The" Hain)
"Sir, Is the Paul Flynn, MP for Newport, who so fulsomely congratulated Peter Hain on his "eighth successive year of distinguished service as Sec. of State for Wales" the same Paul Flynn, MP for Newport, who in his 1999 book, Dragons Led By Poodles, described him as having "been compared with Odo, Star Trek's shape-shifter who liquefies at the end of each day and sleeps in a bucket then later emerges in any shape he wishes"? Apparently Hain had "the capacity of being on all sides - simultaneously". Somewhat mysteriously Flynn referred to him at that time as having succeeded to the Welsh Office "without a shudder of guilt". Not how he left it, eh!" - John Newsinger, Private Eye #1204
Perhaps the actor who so skillfully portrays the Odo character, René Auberjonois should consider suing Citizen Flynn for libel?

Biggest UK quake since 1984

LONDON (Reuters) - An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.2 shook parts of Britain on Wednesday but officials said there were no reports of anyone being killed or serious damage.
The quake struck about an hour after midnight and many people in London and other areas said they had been woken up by the tremors. Wednesday's quake was the strongest for nearly quarter of a century.
In Barnsley, a man was injured in the pelvis when a chimney collapsed and plunged through the roof of his bedroom, said an ambulance service spokeswoman. The man was taken to hospital.
"(The quake) was really bad. I was fast asleep and woke up and the room was shaking," Jemma Harrison, who lives in Manchester, told the BBC.
Soon after the quake occurred the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimated the magnitude at 4.7, but the British Geological Survey later raised the figure to 5.3 before settling on 5.2.
The USGS said on its Web site the quake's epicentre was 127 miles north of London and 50 miles east of Sheffield.
"We have no reports of injuries (in London)," said a police spokesman in the capital.
Police in Lincolnshire said some people had reported minor damage to their homes.
The quake was the largest to hit Britain since one with a magnitude of 5.4 in 1984.
"This is a significant earthquake for the UK and will have been widely felt across England and Wales," said seismologist Brian Baptie of the British Geological Survey.
A couple of nights ago, I had a dream that Mediterranean would be hit by a devastating Earthquake. The following day, a Tsunami warning was issued for South East Asia and today, this occurred.

Shopkeeper cleared in death inquiry

A shopkeeper will not face a murder charge after the man who tried to rob him was stabbed to death with his own knife.
Tony Singh, 34, was arrested after career criminal Liam Kilroe tried to rob him but died when Mr Singh defended himself.
Kilroe, 25, from St Helens, Merseyside, died from a single stab wound to the chest after trying to rob his victim on Birleywood Road, Skelmersdale, around 9pm on February 17.
Mr Singh, who owns the Lifestyle Express store in Birleywood, was arrested on suspicion of murder but later released on bail pending further inquiries.
Lancashire Police had earlier that week issued an appeal for Kilroe to hand himself in after he failed to appear at Preston Crown Court to face armed robbery charges.
He had previously been convicted of assault and robbery.
The force has now said Mr Singh will face no charges over the incident.
Detective Superintendent Mick Gradwell said: "This was a violent attack on Mr Singh by a convicted armed robber.
"My recommendation was that Mr Singh should not be prosecuted and I am pleased that the Crown Prosecution Service has agreed with that."
It is a damn disgrace that Mr. Singh was even arrested in the first place. Why was Kilroe even free to walk the streets in the first place when he was a known 'career criminal' and charged with armed robbery.

Scarlets Scandal

This rumour (and I stress the word 'rumour') might interest Rugby Union fans, and supporters the Scarlets in particular. A couple of nights ago, source of mine learned that a Welsh international and Scarlets player who has featured in this year's Six Nations Championship has been found to be taking 'vitamins' he wasn't suppose to and has been sent into exile in France, having been told in no uncertain terms that he'll never play for the Scarlets again. The scandal is an open secret, but a statement on this matter is 'imminent'.
Now, this may be just a malicious rumour (which is why I won't name names), but if it is true, I bet his wife has had a pop at him.

Quote of the Day 26.2.2008: How To Ruin A Nation In Less Than 11 Years

Read it and weep lefty scum:


"People flee communism or even its wet-arsed sibling, socialism. This means it is demonstrably a rubbish political system which has catastrophically failed in its stated mission: to improve the lives of "the people". Those people vote with their feet for capitalist oppression. This destructive political creed is the scourge of the third world, creating refugee crises in countries neighbouring every socialist state and killing millions in the process. The countries with the highest per capita rate of exodus are just such third-world toilets, generally as a result of decades of such socialist misrule causing the most able people to seek better lives in better governed places - yes lefties, even America. But it's not just communism which makes a mess, its aborted foetus: progressive leftism or social democracy (or whatever you want to euphemistically call drippy PC leftist whingeing) does so too, but in an insidious and subtle way.


The highest rate of exodus in the OECD is the UK, which is not yet quite as bad as somalia - which is why Somalis still want to come here. This exodus of highly educated Native Britons is because of Labour policies like taxing people to penury, then spending the proceeds to subsidise crime, using the welfare state. In a vicious circle, the state tries to replace these migrants by recruiting Somalis, who aren't quite the paragons of virtue presented to the immigration officer. The state then sets its attack dogs in the police to criminalise the rest of the British population for driving, whilst turning a blind eye to labour voters benefit recipients burgling your home. None of the money expropriated from the productive classes in this way is being spent on services they use. Councils can't even empty your bin once a week any more! Over a third of Government managed expenditure is being pissed away on Lambert & Butler in the form of direct benefit payments. To little cash is earmarked for roads, and what is, is spent on speed bumps and road narrowing, increasing frustration on your ever lengthening drive to work. The schools, still in thrall to leftist dogma, seem to think that actual teaching facts and morals is a denial of a child's human right to be a grotty little chav, while little Tarquin no longer gets any dosh to spend on his 3-year drinking sabatical university course. The poor too are betrayed: They are herded from sink comprehensives on un-policed estates to universities which used to be polytechnics, in order to take degrees of zero credibility, which simultaneously raise expectations whilst offering no advantage in the Labour market, which they enter £16,000 in debt. This at vast cost to the tax-payer for the simple purpose of massaging the unemployment statistics. Meanwhile, the only job open to many disadvantaged young men without a university "education" is the Army, which is being eviscerated by decades of underfunding and 10 years of over use. Ancient regiments are being amalgamated, whilst shiny arses in the MOD argue about procurement programmes while denying the boys the kit they need now, fighting two (soon to be 3) hot wars simultaneously. There are now more civil servants in the MOD than Front-line infantrymen - a microcosm of the growth in the utterly pointless bureaucracy by which this Party seeks to cement its regime: by the creation of a bureaucratic client state.


So if you've worked hard, own a home and drive a car, this place is shit - especially if you've committed the thought-crime of doing so in the private sector. The Dude will never leave - I have faith that the great tradition of liberal England will return after a century's hiatus, but my parents have already left for Costa-del-Solshire along with most of their friends, where the sun is hot, the beer is cool and the tax is reasonable - as a result, the locals don't have to beat you up for your pension money (or at least they do so less often than they do at home). It is the best people who are leaving, because they can. The politics of the UK will soon be that of the shit that's left behind: and ever more insanely socialist as a result. Perhaps that's all in the Labour plan, though that would be giving them credit for a competence and forethought I doubt they possess.


Gordon Brown, you really are an incompetent cunt who, despite the brilliant economic legacy bequeathed to you by your predecessor in No11, has fucked the country up, and it's only the remaining checks and balances, which I notice you're still busy trying to "modernise" away, have prevented you turning this country into 1978-9. Why don't you fuck off and kill yourself, you mendacious socialist bastard, before you do more harm?" - Jackart

Quote of the Day 25.1.2008: Across The Pondlife

"Express yourself: (heterosexist, racist, misogynistic or otherwise bigoted comments are subject to deletion)" - the oxymoronic comment moderation policy of the self-confessed Godless Liberal Homo, America's answer to Cllr Terry Kelly
Maybe "Ultimate" Warrior had a point when he made his infamous claim that "queering doesn't make the world work" (at least in the U.S. - we in Britain have the good fortune of having Derek Laud stand up for some much-needed common sense and sanity).

It's been a while since I've had a go at the Gormless One, so lets do so!
Out of sheer boredom (El Tel is rather quiet at the moment), visited Gallas' official web site and clicked on the 'Cartoons' section. I was greeted by a series of crude, unflattering and even offensive images of the looney left's pet hates (Thatcher, Israel, the United States etc.). Some of the stuff wouldn't be out of place in the infamous Der Sturmer.

Sheridan wife 'harassment victim'

Here an interesting bit of news that might appeal to Right For Scotland:
The wife of former Scottish socialist MSP Tommy Sheridan believes she is the victim of police harassment, her lawyer has said.
Gail Sheridan, 44, has been arrested over allegations of theft. She has been suspended by British Airways as a result of the allegations, which are reported to involve miniature bottles of alcohol.
Amer Anwar, the Sheridans' lawyer, said she and her husband were determined to prove her innocence.
Mr Anwar said: "Gail Sheridan has a 23-year unblemished record with British Airways, whom she has represented as part of their promotional team, as well as serving as a shop steward and now as a senior cabin crew member.
"She understands British Airways employment procedures but firmly believes she is now a victim of harassment and intolerable behaviour from Lothian and Borders Police and sections of the press.
"Both Mr and Mrs Sheridan are determined to prove their innocence and will not be intimidated or bullied by Lothian and Borders Police."
A Lothian and Borders Police spokeswoman confirmed: "A 44-year-old woman has been arrested and charged and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal."
The police force would not comment on newspaper claims that alcohol miniatures were found in the Sheridan home by officers investigating perjury allegations.
A British Airways spokesman said: "A member of cabin crew has been suspended as part of an ongoing investigation."
Mr Sheridan, 43, was charged with perjury in December - around 16 months after he won his £200,000 action against the News Of The World at the Court of Session in Edinburgh. His father-in-law, Angus Healy, 71, and three colleagues who backed him in the trial have also been charged.
