Gaza Massacre Open Thread




This is an open thread on the Israeli storming of the "aid"ship.

I will not censor or moderate any comment but please think carefully before you post abuse.

My views on Zionism are well known. I hate the cunts. This is what happens when the state is more important than its citizens and the state is founded on illogical sky pixies. It becomes the ultimate terrorist.

Get stuck in.

UPDATE: Turkey is to send further aid ships.

Protected by the Turkish Navy. Turkey is a NATO country and an attack by the Israelis would be an attack on all NATO countries. This is getting interesting. After the demise of another supremacist country, South Africa, Israel only has one allie left. The leading member of NATO. Is it game over for Israel?

David Laws has resigned....as yet unconfirmed

UPDATE: Now confirmed.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss





I give up

The tax payer has been financing his gay lover lobbyist.

"the recommendations must be adopted swiftly and in full - and MPs must not tamper with it or undermine it." - David Laws MP, Chard & Ilminster News, 05/11/09


Nope. It seems we really are going to need a revolution.

UPDATE: My theory, for what it is worth is that David Laws has had a visit from MI5 who always do a background check on new ministers to see if they are open to blackmail or any other threat. Looks like they may have caught a live one. If Laws was using taxpayers money to buy a flat "for his friend" to keep his homosexuality a secret, was it a voluntary arangement?

He could of course have reported himself to IPSA last year, not last night. I have to wonder why.

blog comments closed

Sorry guys, I'm now tired of a few demented homosexuals trolling this blog, day in, day out, fucking up decent threads and adding no value to the blog or indeed the blogosphere.

I've provided a white wall with no censorship or moderation since this blog began. It appears a couple of my party guests are now intent on shitting on the carpet and fucking up two years hard work.

I am the only top ten blogger to offer no censorship or moderation. No more. If you want your own blog, start one. Do not hijack mine.

No more anonymous comments for the time being.

UPDATE: comments re-opened. Poof fight will continue elsewhere I am assured.

Lord Prescott

Yup. Lord Prescott

I am now going to lie down.

Unchaining the poor


And so it begins.

Firstly, we have no poor people in this country. No one starves to death, health care and education are free, as is housing if required. If in doubt, research how far people who do not have it are willing to travel hidden in a lorry to get here or simply visit Calais or Bristol East.

Whilst I believe the State is the worst supplier of the above services, I cannot disagree that they should exist, albeit not in their present wasteful and inefficient form.

This morning, some facts that have been hidden for years emerged. We have millions of people trapped in benefits. Trapped by a malicious system contrived by a political party to keep it's voters enslaved in an East Germanische system of reliance on the Great State and ever thankful to the Politburo for crumbs that fall from the table.

The Politburo of course own expensive Datschas, eat fine food and concern themselves with the acquisition of personal wealth whilst millions of citizens are denied freedom and live their lives in welfare purgatory. They cannot accept jobs because the Politburo has decided to be free, your labour must be worth the minimum wage of £5.80 an hour. If it isn't, get back in your house and be grateful for the crumbs.

The Politburo has of course created the conditions for a subservient population to be grateful for those crumbs. Education is woeful. Families are to be discouraged. State broadcasters dictate what makes you happy. Dissent is not to be tolerated and the citizen is not to be trusted. For those unable to break free, the only option is to vote for more crumbs. And vote they did.

We now how the opportunity to set these people free. Millions of them. In the same way a heroin addict becomes free of his dealers once the cold turkey wears off, the underclass have the opportunity to become free of the Politburo that has ruled with a fist of iron for the last 13 years.

It will be painful, it will be unpleasant and it will be frightening. But you can do it. Firstly, we need to reduce the fix these people have become addicted to. Then we need to offer the alternative. The alternative is the freedom to start a business, to become self employed or to sell your labour to the highest bidder, free from the clutches of the Politburo.

If 250 million living under the jackboot of Soviet socialism can make the leap of faith, so can you.

Now get to work. It doesn't matter that the country is in ruins. Get to work. The Germans rebuilt their nation in 15 years after the war. Get to work. Aspire to be better. Create something. Be something. Do not live your life according to the whims of a multimillionaire Politician who only has his vested interests at heart. Get to work. It's worth it.

Some Quotes from Westminster


the camp, which consists of 31 small dome tents, three communal marquees, a tee-pee and a pair of compost toilets,


Today, three tourists from Iran had stumbled across the camp while visiting Big Ben. "We like it, it is very nice," said Ali Hamid, a 36-year old translator from Iran. "We have taken some pictures and we think it is a very good idea because parliament is right there and they can hear the protest."

"I wish we could have this in Iran," added Ahmed Zariee, 25, a student.
A statement on the mayor's behalf said Johnson was concerned at the camp's impact on "a top tourist attraction visited by thousands of people and broadcast around the world each day. The mayor respects the right to demonstrate ‑ however, the scale and impact of the protest is now doing considerable damage to the square and preventing its peaceful use by other Londoners including those who may wish to have an authorised protest," it read.


Now whether you agree with a few dozen oddballs camping out in Westminster or not, I think most of my readers will agree that the right to peaceful protest is a fundemental right, it is not a privilege to be granted or an entitlement for good behaviour. It is a right.

Yesterday saw Brian Haw being carted off after nine years to a police cell and up in court this morning. Again, the guy may have mental health issues but he is no harm to himself or others and actually DOES have the right to be there whilst the rest of us don't.

I've protested outside Parliament enough times without permission, some of you have joined me and I've just found another bye law that says I shouldn't.

Greater London Authority act (1999), "exhibiting any notice, advertisement or any other written or pictorial matter", camping and organising a "performance or theatrical event".


So walking around Parliament Square dressed as Guy Fawkes is also illegal, is it? I'm going to do lots more of it. Here is a photo of me breaking the law. Lots of times. Come and get me Boris (note to Iain Dale, report me if you want but if you want to ring my employer, you'll have to ring me. I don't do "boss")


PS. Here's some other law breakers having a theatrical performance yesterday in Parliament


UPDATE: apparently, my readers think he is an "eyesore" and therefore had to go. Here is an eyesore.

Brenda, Nick and Dave, LIVE



Mummy, Daddy, Children. Are you sitting comfortably?


Then I'll begin

Parents

Your children, if aged 13 and under have only ever lived under a New Labour government. That means you have not had to take responsibility for their education, discipline, welfare, behaviour or aspirations. You have been taught to give them all they require and send the bill to the Government who promised to look after everything as long as you voted for them. Nike trainers, PS3's on demand, iPhones for under 10's, the lot. and if you couldn't afford it, Labour made sure that every credit shark in the business could lend you money you couldn't afford to repay.

If your partner legged it, so what, more tax credits. If little Timmy punched a teacher, so what, he'll get extra sweets from an ADHD diversity coordinator and if he burnt down the house, so what, Labour would give you another one. If he can't read and write, so what, he'll go on the Social and get a flat for his now pregnant girlfriend he met last night. No need to worry about the kids, that's what the state is for, ain't my fault, innit.

Well guess what? That's coming to an end. If you didn't bother to nurture your offspring, the State will no longer take responsibility for them. You will. Chardonnay is not going to get a council house because she dropped them as soon as she could to the first passing asylum seeker with no forwarding address. She and her halfling are going to be living in your spare room, smoking your fags and wolfing down your pot noodles.

Little Connor (who is an angel, says his Nan) is not going to get one on one tuition in an effort to stop him hitting the teachers. He's going to be smashing up YOUR front room instead of a classroom. Oh, and he's not going for two weeks camping with the council diversity coordinator where he can run riot and you get a fortnights heavy drinking in. He's staying with you. Ripping up your stuff to show how creative he is. And the army of hairy lipped sandalistas you normally rang and demanded "sort 'im aht, he's doin' my 'ead in" aren't going to be there anymore.

In short, the buck now stops with you. Not me, the taxpayer. Enjoy the fruits of your loins. Every horrifying minute stuck with what you allowed Labour to create in your name. Put down the remote and teach your child to read. Sit at a dinner table and eat with your child. Meals YOU have cooked. Teach him the value of food, conversation, family, money, hard work, ambition, aspiration and dreams. Show him knowledge. Teach him manners. Teach him the consequences of his decisions. Teach him respect.

Because no matter what they promised, Labour certainly didn't and now you are going to have to pick up the pieces. I wish you luck, you're going to need it.

Children

Your world is about to change dramatically. In order to survive, you are going to have to do things you have never done before. You are going to have to acquire skills that will enable you to live in a world where there are no free hand outs and no one is being paid to put up with your abuse anymore. Trust me, they aren't going to do it for free either.

If you decide that school is a pain, family is shit, money is everything and having a laugh whilst someone else pays and deals with the mess, then you are in for a shock. It isn't your fault but it IS up to you to sort it out. And you can. You have a unique opportunity to crawl out of the pond that so many of today's neets are mindlessly swimming in and you'd better make sure you're in the first wave who do, because sure as eggs, the ladder will be pulled up.

Study. Read a book. Gain knowledge that others do not have, it will make you valuable. It will mean you do not have to live with your mum, her numerous boyfriends and Chardonnays screaming brat "doing your head in". It will give you independence to live your life as you wish, not as a Politician wished you to live it. It will give you freedom.

One thing is for sure, if you want what Labour promised, an easy idle life with no responsibility, then you are going to have to finance it yourself.

As Liam Byrne said "There's no money left". And he wasn't joking.

Brian Haw arrested




It had to happen. Fat Poof Mrs Dale decided that the place looked "untidy" (the irony) and another Queen might be offended by looking at common people today, so sod the promise to restore our right to protest peacefully. Lock 'em up, whatever.

It seems the idea of putting away my mask and cape are a little premature.

the Gravy Train


Nice to see there is to be a complete recruitment freeze in the public sector. Imagine my surprise when I checked the Grauniad this morning to find 310 open Government jobs

Yup 310.

The first page alone gives us 28 jobs and a bill of over £1m a year in salaries, plus the usual pension and benefits.

This does not include the numerous fake charities that receive massive involuntary grants from the taxpayer to remain off the books whilst in effect carrying out Labour party policy on such things as climate change of reminding us all that "some people are gay, get over it" (£350K donation from the Dept of Enterprise, ex- Mandelson).

Until the Government jobs page in the Grauniad is empty, I am going to send the entire list of jobs per email, every single day to info@georgeosborne.com asking him to explain.

Then, I am going to go through the fake charities and find out how much of our money is used to support the aims of the Labour Party and demand that it stops.

Next, the quangos

  • There are 1,162 quangos in the UK, running at a total cost to the taxpayer of £64 billion, equivalent to £2,550 per household.
  • Even under the Cabinet Office’s restrictive definition of quangos, the cost of these bodies has risen 50% in the last ten years.
  • UK quangos now employ an army of almost 700,000 bureaucrats.
  • Even the Government itself does not know the full extent of the unaccountable quango industry, which range from the massive e.g. Job Centre Plus (Staff: 70,042, Cost: £3.5 billion) and the Courts Service (Staff: 19,986, Cost: £704.8 million); to the bizarre e.g. the British Potato Council (Staff: 49); or the West Northants Development Corporation (Staff: 34, Cost: £15.3 million)
  • When the total number of quangos is added to the other government subsidiaries such as local authorities and NHS trusts, the total number of organisations controlled by the UK Government rises to 2,063, costing the taxpayer £257 billion and employing over 5.1 million people.
Get the knife out and cut deep. Only when I see the fields full of Englishmen picking carrots and strawberries instead of Poles will we know we are back on course. Unlike the Greeks, Germany will not bail us out. Earn a living instead of demanding one.

those cuts (they aren't, they're scratches) in full


Next. DFID. A staggering amount of your money is poured straight into the hands of undemocratic dictators and lobbyists via "aid" for developing countries. Like India, that in turn then hands it on to others or Singapore. Yes. Singapore. We gave £48M to singapore last year. Their living standard is 47% higher than ours.

Here is an indiction of the various projects you and I are funding. Meanwhile, if YOU fancy half a million quid a year for five years, get stuck in, it's free.

The Pariah State


It won't surprise many of my readers to discover that supremacist state Israel was helping to nuclear arm the supremacist government of South Africa. It's what supremacists do.

Dig a little deeper though and you will find all sorts.

David Kelly worked at Tel Aviv Nes Zions research institute in Israel specialising in microbiology. The place is top secret and work has involved research of the "Jewish Gene" and likewise, David Kelly had been researching biological warfare for the South Africans, specifically weapons that could kill "enemy races".

Most foreign scientists who worked at Nes Zions are now dead, including 5 Russians when their Aeroflot flight was shot down with a missile.

Now, I'm sure I left my passport here somewhere....

You utter bastards


Ed Balls and Ed Miliband say the war in Iraq was a mistake and an error.

I'm beyond angry. I'm not even on the same fucking continent as angry.

You will be held accountable.

Friday Fun

Go on, pull its wings off


I never fly BA and now thanks to Unite, no one else will.

A little background on the dispute. It is well known that travel perks are one of the reasons you work for an airline. Most people who work for BA take annual holidays in Bali because they can. Instead of paying tax on this benefit in kind, it is off contract, just like the Unions asked for.

The boss of BA said "go on strike and you'll lose this" and lo and behold, they did. Now they want to cripple BA so they can fly to Bali for fuck all again.

And move into rant mode....

One of the reasons I don't fly BA is that the staff are fucking horrendous. From the minute you arrive at "Thiefrow" airport, battle past the hi-viz vested smoking malingerers loitering everywhere you are greeted by the utter disdain of thousands of BA ground staff who are put there to make your journey as unpleasant as possible. Your baggage disappears into a black hole to be rifled through by Sundeep, Winston and Crazy Dazza before being sent on it's way to 12 thousand miles from where you will land.

Once onboard, you will be greeted by a fat balding middle aged poof or a matron with all the social skills of olive from On the Buses. If you are lucky, you will be thrown a biscuit, if not you will be sat next to a Nigerian screaming baby. You will then be totally ignored for the rest of the flight whilst the three campest men in England gossip in the galley and tell you to sit down if you stand up to rearrange your bollocks. Secret hand signs tell the staff which other passengers are on freebies from BA and those lucky travellers will spend the entire flight eating fois gras and quaffing champagne whilst you have to drink tap water from the bogs. Sordid tales of Moroccan mens saunas are blurted out by the shaven headed peacocks busy filing their nails whilst stocking up on Gin and Tonics from the "off record" drinks trolly that makes one appearance on a 12 hour flight.

Bastards, one and all. Put them on their arses, Willy. Bankrupt the airline, buy it back for a quid and reissue contracts to those who actually want to work. Preferably size 10, blond and Polish.

Take your medicine


Well, it appears that the new rules at Hogwarts are not to everyones liking.

We are being treated like benefit claimants. Why don't they just put up a metal grille?
You are benefits claimants. Get on with it and shut up or resign. Good idea with the metal grille.

What happens on a January night in London? I suppose I will have to take the tube, then a bus and then a long walk home. That is not safe.
Welcome to our world. 650 people can change that overnight if they wish by making the streets safe. No one else can. It is after all why you were elected by us.

We just have to accept this because the public is not with us. It will take something really horrendous, such as a woman MP being stabbed on the streets of London because she is not entitled to take a taxi home late at night, before people wake up and realise how unfair this is.
What exactly is unfair about asking you to live in the same society as us? the one YOU created? My hatred of politicians continues......

Hat tip @sassylad

Doodle day

Some people called Mohammed, dressed as Mohammed, making sure no one creates an image of Mohammed, yesterday

Today is international "draw a picture of Mohammed day" apparently.

Pakistan has just taken down Facebook, Youtube and Wikipeadia in an effort to stop any image of Mohammed corrupting the faithful.

Apparently they are not offended by calling most boys Mohammed and dressing exactly as Mohammed did but quite happy to cut off your head if you actually draw a picture of yourself looking like Mohammed and call it Mohammed.

Best £120 Million a year donation we've made I reckon

They've been busy




Right, this is an open thread to see if we like what we see in the just published Programme for Government.

In Praise Of Liberty- John Redwood


John Redwood MP is asking for contributions towards the Great Repeal Act.

I am not a huge fan but respect his stance on the Liberties of the Individual, I spoiled my ballot paper for the first time in thirty plus years of voting as there was not one Party I could in all Honesty and Faith give my support to.

It appears that both Clegg and Redwood have caught the public Zeitgeist towards rolling back the intrusive State in our individual lives.

I have made my suggestion that without due process no agent of the State can fine you, deprive you of your Liberty, Property and Livelihood without due process of Law. I know this is in the 1688 Bill of Rights and Magna Carta, but by Acts of Parliament these have been eroded.

That means an end to Gatsos/on the spot fines/HMRC forcing their way into your home without a warrant and the four hundred other bodies that are allowed on to your property with rights to impound your goods without leave of a Court. An end to the local hardman setting himself up as a 'bailiff' to terrorise single mothers and old people.

Any public official with these powers should not have 'Crown Immunity' from civil or criminal prosecution. If it can be proved in a Court that a public official has with vexatious intent, corrupt purpose or the usual incompetence pursued an action in the 'public interest' against an individual they should be personally liable for such loss or damages. Crown Immunity is corrosive and unjust.

The public official should carry personal indemnity insurance as do other professionals. Not paid for by the State, but by an Insurance Company. Too many failed actions and that Insurance company would put the premiums up or withdraw cover altogether thus ending his/her position.

Tear down the Wall


I have spent my whole political life fighting to open up politics. So let me make one thing very clear: this government is going to be unlike any other.


This government is going to transform our politics so the state has far less control over you, and you have far more control over the state.


This government is going to break up concentrations of power and hand power back to people, because that is how we build a society that is fair.


This government is going to persuade you to put your faith in politics once again.



I'm not talking about a few new rules for MPs; not the odd gesture or gimmick to make you feel a bit more involved.


I'm talking about the most significant programme of empowerment by a British government since the great enfranchisement of the 19th Century.


The biggest shake up of our democracy since 1832, when the Great Reform Act redrew the boundaries of British democracy, for the first time extending the franchise beyond the landed classes.


Landmark legislation, from politicians who refused to sit back and do nothing while huge swathes of the population remained helpless against vested interests.


Who stood up for the freedom of the many, not the privilege of the few.


A spirit this government will draw on as we deliver our programme for political reform: a power revolution.


A fundamental resettlement of the relationship between state and citizen that puts you in charge.


So, no, incremental change will not do.


It is time for a wholesale, big bang approach to political reform.


That's what this government will deliver.


It is outrageous that decent, law-abiding people are regularly treated as if they have something to hide.


It has to stop.


So there will be no ID card scheme.


No national identity register, no second generation biometric passports.


We won't hold your internet and email records when there is just no reason to do so.


CCTV will be properly regulated, as will the DNA database, with restrictions on the storage of innocent people's DNA.


And we will end practices that risk making Britain a place where our children grow up so used to their liberty being infringed that they accept it without question.


There will be no ContactPoint children's database.


Schools will not take children's fingerprints without even asking their parent's consent."



This will be a government that is proud when British citizens stand up against illegitimate advances of the state.


That values debate, that is unafraid of dissent.


That's why we'll remove limits on the rights to peaceful protest.


It's why we'll review libel laws so that we can better protect freedom of speech.


And as we tear through the statute book, we'll do something no government ever has:


We will ask you which laws you think should go.


Because thousands of criminal offences were created under the previous government...


Taking people's freedom away didn't make our streets safe.


Obsessive lawmaking simply makes criminals out of ordinary people.


So, we'll get rid of the unnecessary laws, and once they're gone, they won't come back.


We will introduce a mechanism to block pointless new criminal offences.

It's in their blood... Eric Illsley (Lab) charged with fraud


Eric Illsley MP has been charged with three offences of false accounting in relation to claims for parliamentary expenses.

Eric Illsley claimed £10,000 for council tax over 4 yrs..for a Lambeth Band C property.

MP's Investigating Their Own Again



If you are a District Councillor and you abuse public funds for Party Political purposes, you will be surcharged to the limit of your personal assets and made bankrupt. It appears that is exactly what Mandelson was doing with our money, spending in Labour marginals on projects that were not value for money.

If the ' New Politics' are to mean anything,Mandelson should be investigated by the Metropolitan Police, not by the public accounts committee, who and on past performances pass the harsh penalty of 'apologising' to the House.


Figures disclosed by the Treasury last night showed that ministers overruled civil servants on spending plans on at least four occasions since the start of 2010.

Advice from officials was ignored on a further nine occasions in 2009. This compares with just five occasions in the previous three years.

Three quarters of these objections were on ‘value for money’ grounds.

Lord Mandelson's spending decisions were challenged on five occasions in 2009 including a loan to a quango in the west Midlands and £10million worth of funding for sports complex in Leeds.

Other objections on value for money grounds were made to the £300million car scrappage scheme and plans for dairy farmers.

The spending decisions are now likely to be investigated by MPs on the Public Accounts Committee, which oversees Whitehall spending, when it is reconvened.

Christopher Hope- The Telegraph

In Police parlance the CPS have charged the 'small fry' but the 'Mr Big' has not been cornered, the Lords elegantly sidestepped any charges of corruption amongst their own, Mandelson included.

For so many 'Letters of Direction' to be issued by First Division Civil Servants 2009-10 demonstrates to my mind that something akin to abuse of Public Funds was being alledged by the Civil Service.

This is not a repetition of ' falsifying mortgage applications' or getting British Passports for his Indian friends, this is the wholesale rape of the exchequer.

Do you trust a Committee of MP's to determine anything other than a slap on the wrist ?

Mandelson should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law as would any District Councillor, 'pour encourager les autres', so they do not think they can commit any crime and be untouchable before the Law.

The first thing is needed is a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police, something I am sadly precluded from doing for the present.

Quote of the Day

Clean socks are a privilege, not a right
"transform our politics so the state has far less control over you, and you have far more control over the state".


Well Nick, that's a good start, but I notice you are vehemently opposed to any fiddling with the Human Rights Act.. May I remind you of how warped the human rights act can be?

Pakistani Al Queda who want to kill us cannot be deported
Foreign rapists and murderers cannot be deported
The criminal has become the victim
We have an upside down Police Force
A Magistrate may not refer to guilty scum as scum without losing his job

I am passionately in favour of Human Rights but I am also passionately in favour of a fair justice system and passionate about personal repsonsibility. The Human Rights Act denies you your rights to live in peace by empowering those who do not wish to live in peace. One size does not fit all. It is not your human right to demand whatever you wish if it has an adverse effect on others. I'd like to be able to buy whiskey at 3am but it isn't my right to force a shopkeeper to stay up all night serving whiskey. It isn't the right of a feral scrote to bully and intimidate those around him. It isn't your right of free expression to keep your neighbours awake all night by playing Whitney Housten at 120db.

That which adversely affects the lives of others should never be enshrined in law.

Uncommon Law, Rex v Haddock: Is it a free country?, 5, pp24-29.



A misleading case when Haddock is arrested for jumping into the River Thames from Hammersmith Bridge. When questioned to motive, Haddock replies "For fun". The judge sums up: "The appellant made the general answer that this was a free country and a man can do what he likes if he does nobody any harm.... It cannot be too clearly understood that this is not a free country, and it will be an evil day for the legal profession when it is... and least of all may they do unusual actions "for fun". People must not do things for fun. There is no reference to fun in any Act of Parliament."

All parents should allow health inspectors into their homes to check that windows, doors, cupboards and stairs do not pose a danger to children, it was claimed.



No, really.

Arise, Lord Burnie




A Northumberland millionaire has sold his country estate near Alnwick, giving every penny of the proceeds to charity.



Brian Burnie put Doxford Hall Hotel and its 10-acre estate up for sale for £9m, pledging that the proceeds would go to fund cancer care in the region.



Mr Burnie said: "We live in a me, me, me society and it has always been important to me to think of others.



"We can all do something by leaving money to charity when we die, but why don't we do something while we are still living?"



He wants to pay for a Macmillan cancer nurse for north Northumberland and buy custom-made vehicles to take cancer patients to and from hospitals.



The father-of-three said he and his wife Shirley - a breast cancer survivor - would live on their private pension.



The Newcastle-born millionaire said: "After 17 years this is an important milestone for me and my family and of course we will be sad to leave.



"I've done the stately home bit - the bricks and mortar - but I've always been a people person. To be able to do something to help people has a much bigger return than any financial gain."



"You are what your parents are and you should never forget your roots - we were millionaires in kindness, not money."


Mr Burnie began his working life as a 15-year-old grocery delivery boy before beginning a student apprenticeship for builders John Laing.



Will he be in the honours list? No. The Mouth of the Humber, soon to become Lord of the Pies will instead.


Where do I send the bill?


214. Part V introduces a specific power that will enable relevant authorities to pay compensation to individuals where they are satisfied that maladministration has, or may have, occurred. There is also provision to enable both the Secretary of State and the National Assembly for Wales (NAW) to make orders to confer a power on relevant authorities to offer insurance against indemnity to their members and officers.

source

It has long been the custom to surcharge elected councillors when they decide that the public purse is but a personal plaything. I am awaiting the final no holds barred audit from the last 13 years of New Labour maladministration, then I intend to divide the total by 61,000,000 and sue Gordon Brown and his now defunct spendthrift cabinet.

And no, I'm not joking. I'll show you what you need to do and perhaps we can all demand our money back. Now that the well has been poisoned for us and our children, isn't it the duty of every citizen to bring to justice those who did it? Watch this space.

(John Redwood reckons we are up the junction to the tune of £4 TRILLION. That makes my share £65,573. Cough up Gordon, I want my money back)

646 of them, 61,000,000 of us.

Off topic, but do come and celebrate our multicultural diversity, thanks to new Labour. Hours of fun

++EU Referendum to be forced within months++


Conservative eurosceptics are planning an attempt to force a referendum on the EU's Lisbon Treaty within the next few months, it has been revealed.



Tory MP Douglas Carswell said that he and colleagues are planning to take advantage of a minor technical change to the Treaty to trigger a public vote.



The move would be a headache for Prime Minister David Cameron, who dropped his "cast-iron guarantee" of a referendum on the Treaty after it was ratified into European law last year.


And it would provide an early test of the unity of the new Tory coalition with the strongly pro-European Liberal Democrats.



Mr Cameron's coalition agreement with Lib Dems committed the new Government to a "referendum lock" requiring public approval for any proposed future Treaty that transferred areas of power or competences to Brussels.



The Foreign Office confirmed that primary legislation will be needed to ratify a technical amendment to the Treaty rebalancing the numbers of MEPs from each member-state in line with last year's agreement.



The Lisbon Treaty provided for 12 member states, including the UK, to have a total of 18 additional MEPs, while Germany would lose three. However this could not be put into effect at last year's European Parliament election because the Treaty was not yet in force.



Bringing in the extra MEPs before the next elections in 2014 would require a technical amendment, and the European Council is expected to decide in June whether to press ahead with the change.



"If this protocol is agreed, primary legislation will be needed in the UK to ratify this technical amendment to the Treaty," said the Foreign Office in a statement to the BBC.




"This is a technical change to the Treaty relating to numbers of MEPs and would not transfer any power to the EU."



Scorched Earth


Well well.

- A series of defence contracts signed shortly before the election, including a £13 billion tanker aircraft programme whose cost has “astonished and baffled” ministers.

- £420m of school building contracts, many targeting Labour marginals, signed off by Ed Balls, the former schools secretary, weeks before the general election was called.

- The troubled £1.2 billion “e-borders” IT project for the immigration service, which, sources say, is running even later and more over-budget than Labour ministers had admitted.

- A crisis in the student loans company where extra cash may be needed to prevent a repeat of last year’s failure to process tens of thousands of claims on time.

- The multi-billion-pound cost of decommissioning old nuclear power plants, which ministers claim has not been properly accounted for in Whitehall budgets.

- A £600m computer contract for the new personal pensions account scheme rushed through by Labour this year, which will still cost at least £25m even if it is cancelled.

Also:

Jack Straw, who is presumably free to speak the truth because he is past all personal ambition, put it most explicitly last week. In order to recover, he said, Labour would have to get back the votes of “decent, hard-working families” who felt that “we had not been listening enough on issues such as immigration, benefits and fairness”.

Every word of this statement is significant. “Decent” implies not feckless or irresponsible. “Hard-working” means not choosing benefit dependency as a way of life. “Families” suggests people who are maintaining more or less stable relationships in which to raise children. In other words, Mr Straw is acknowledging that Labour had come to be associated with the interests of people who were irresponsible, not hard-working and had no commitment to family life in any sustainable form.

Government Tweeting Guidlines


Yup. Labour produced a 20 page document on how to tweet.

Read and weep.

PS Shhh. Page 17 might tell you the only national journalists Labour trusted......

Germans voting last week

Economics expert Christoph Schmidt told BILD: “We did really not want to have European monetary union like this. It happened the opposite way to what we Germans were told at that time under stable monetary policy and with an independent central bank.

Make Tea, Not War


I notice with delight that a mere 24 hours into your new government, the vested interest groups are howling that they aren't represented.

Firstly we have the Grauniad (surprise, surprise) outraged that women are not proportionally represented.

We have a parliament that is not representative of the people, and a cabinet not even representative of parliament. A cabal of rich, white, middle-aged, soft-handed men is to rule over this mixed-up, multiracial, aging, 51%-female, gloriously diverse country of ours. A new politics? I don't think so.
We are in the mess we are in BECAUSE we allowed every rag tag minority to dictate the agenda. The delicious irony being that as soon as a minority gains any power, they immediately decide that their minority is more important than the majority and we have NHS forms sent out in 17 languages or black policy advisors demanding blacks only schools.

Shut up, roll up your sleeves and get on with untangling 13 years of minority tyranny. Either that or make a fucking cuppa for those that are. This IS the new politics.

UPDATE: As if by magic, the Daily Mash nails it

But chippy feminist Nikki Hollis criticised the report, adding: "It is every woman's right to drive a Freelander and fly to New York for business shopping.

"We can only achieve true equality when we can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with men, look at the cataclysmic destruction of the world's ecosystem and proudly proclaim that at least half of it was our fault."

But Professor Brubaker insisted: "While Ms Hollis makes some interesting points, it's not getting the tea made is it?"

Surviving Austerity (Part 1)



How many strange objects can you name?


Right. Look about you. Fat people, shiny cars bought on the never never, millions idle, high streets full of takeaways and shops selling expensive tat, advertising everywhere promising you a better life.

We're fucked. You wouldn't think it because politicians are just printing more money to hand to us to keep us quiet, but we are mightily fucked. So fucked not even our children can pay off what the last generation of politicians have spent trying to keep us happy. And pretty soon, it's going to collapse.

So it's time to live within our means again. It won't hurt if you change your mindset and lower your expectations of driving a Ferrari like Wayne Rooney just because your teacher showed you a football was round.

The human species is roughly two million years old, you will survive a little austerity, I promise. Just 100 years ago, there were:

No washing machines, cars, microwaves, radios, sun beds, aeroplanes, LCD TV's, mobile phones, computers, PS2's, toasters, iPods or central heating.

Just 100 years ago, there were:

No Potato Marketing Boards, Diversity Focus Groups, soft Play areas, community 5 a side pitches, Asylum Outreach Centres, Somali translators, teaching assistants, Community enforcement Officers.

People survived and thrived. Families supported themselves, respected fellow citizens and poor but honest was a virtue. Wastage was zero, trades were learned, skills were acquired that could feed a family in hard times. Time was used constructively, children were crammed full of knowledge in the hope they would get worthwhile and lucrative employment, meritocracies allowed the clever and the ambitious to get ahead. Philanthropy was rife, and we had a sense of pride in our achievements. Our homes were furnished according to our needs, not our whims, our bellies were filled with energy foods to sustain us instead of inflating us.

It will not kill us. It didn't then and it won't now. So instead of sitting on the sofa watching mindless pap on Sky, go and plant some carrots. Instead of endlessly texting your mates, read a recipe book. Learn something that will keep you alive, whether it be a skill everyone needs and will pay you for (clue:it isn't HTML or aromatherapy), or how to cook a meal, learn something useful. Learn how a chicken works. Learn how to plant a potato. Learn how to look after YOU and yours. You're going to need it. The people who have been overpaid with your money to do it all for you are not going to be there much longer. And do it now, the internet has all the answers to all the questions.

Those currently rioting are those who sold their souls to politicians. They made no provision for themselves other than greedily grabbing whatever a politician threw at them to keep them quiet.

Invest in yourself for a change. Because ultimately, you are the only thing you will ever truly own. Make sure you have value because pretty soon, you may well be on your own.

Bring it on. Your children will thank you for it. Start with taking away for a night camping.

A bigger picture


With all the fuss over the election, many will have missed the storming of the Irish Parliament yesterday by protesters unhappy that their government has just decided to buy up all the bad debt that banks have accrued and hand it over to the taxpayer to pay off.

Spain is also about to go into financial meltdown and with 20% of the population unemployed, and Greece still simmering like a pressure cooker, it could get very, very ugly indeed. The unelected EU has ordered it's citizens to cough up $1 TRILLION to cover the mistakes and the profligate promises of politicians endlessly handing out sweets to the children whilst stealing not just their pocket money but their futures in return for personal gain.

Whilst the press squeeze every last drop of media out of our politicians, our politicians are planning to squeeze every last drop of everything out of us.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Remember, these people got us here. Are we all so naive as to think they can get us back out again? Turn off the telly today, as all you will see is what colour curtains SamCam will be choosing for number 10 and no plans of how our government plans to finally get out of our lives.

Freeman on the Land update


Mrs Ex-Old Holborn wants money and put OH in a Child Support Tribunal this morning to get at it.


So I'm summoned to a tribunal by the CSA this morning as my "lifestyle" does not match my income. Apparently. Of course, the hairs on the back of my neck are up as the State begins to ask me about how I fund my "lifestyle"

Judge Webster : Mr Holborn, how much is your mortgage and what is your house worth?
OH: On who's authority are you asking?
Judge Webster: I am a Judge
OH: So show me your sworn oath, then I'll answer your questions
Judge Webster: I don't have it here, but I did swear an oath to the Queen
OH: Without that oath in court, you have no authority, do you?
Judge Webster: I can have you removed, answer the questions
OH: Go on then, I dare you. It'll be common assault. Clerk, please record that the "Judge" has just refused to identify herself or her authority to the court.
Judge Webster: I'll just ignore you then
OH: Clerk, please record that too.
Judge Webster: Case adjourned. Get out.
OH: One moment, about my expenses........

£24 travel expenses paid in cash.


Council Tax Update

Considering that the council tax is demanded before services are provided, I thought I'd play a little game with the council. So, I instigated a plan to pay over instalments. Then defaulted for two months. Whooosh. County Court judgement against me for non payment of services not yet rendered and the bailiffs instructed to collect the outstanding amount of services not yet rendered. I ignored the bailiffs and resumed paying the council as per normal. They cashed the cheques, so by default, I have no debt with the council. Rang up and checked, and yes, no debt.

Nobody has bothered to tell the bailiffs, who keep arriving to demand £500 with various illegal threats.

"We are calling next week to remove goods. We would prefer you to be in"

Illegal. No bailiff may enter your property without your consent and certainly not if you are out

The bailiff lost his marbles when I told him to ring the council, I had no debt with them and certainly not with some two bit bunch of sharks claiming to work on my behalf. He was banking on that commission (most bailiffs are actually self employed anyway)

He was not amused. I was. Council are now paying the bailiff charges as I didn't instruct a bailiff in the first place, they did. I just paid for the council services WHEN I received them and not before.


More to follow I'm sure...

FFS- Labour A Libertarian Party !!!!!

But time after time, the Lib Dems have been right about civil liberties and Labour has been wrong. Making Labour a genuine libertarian party again would do more than cement the partnership, it would remove what has been a blot on Labour's record.

Roy Hattersley - The Guardian


The World Turned Upside Down !

The Botched Federal Kingdom Of Britain

The Constitutional crisis that we are currently enjoying can be laid firmly at the feet of the New Labour administration.

So keen were they to placate the Welsh and Scottish Labour Parties to maintain their dominant role against the rising Nationalist tide, that they botched devolution by not giving it to England. Even Northern Ireland got in on the act.

They should not have worried, because these ‘sham’ Nationalists, do not actually believe in economic Nationalism, just saying what they want to do with other people’s money be it English Gold or EU Gold, and wanting a ‘fairer’ redistribution of National wealth (subsidies) from Whitehall.

Lets be clear about this for the last thirteen years the Labour Party has been kept in power by a gaggle of Welsh and Scottish MP’s and Ministers. The Darien Government. They brought with them the twisted politics of patronage and corruption now seen in Glasgow

Last Thursday’s election clearly showed that England under first past the post went Tory and that the Tories barely had a showing in Scotland, and only a glimmer in Wales.

Cameron set his face against the political reality of the United Kingdom in post devolution Britain. The reality was that we had a Federal Kingdom already, but HE wanted to be the Prime Minister of Great Britain, something akin to wanting the role of viceroy of India in 1950.

The issue of proportional representation is only part of the argument; the only place that we have FPTP is in the Whitehall elections, because it structurally favoured Labour. Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland have PR, only England is hamstrung by FPTP, to allow Scottish and Welsh MP’s to have a greater say in the running of the country.

My position is quite simple, I am a passionate believer in PR, and there is no moral case against. For too long we have had a rigged system that disenfranchises seventy percent of the electorate and ossifies political debate.

I am also a passionate believer in structures that work. The 1688 structure as amended by the Act of Union has broken down.


Clegg, Mandelson and Cameron are trying to put together a botched repair to a discredited system.

We have a Federal system – fact. Acknowledge the political reality.

We need a new political settlement, with an English Parliament based on PR, with an elected 100 man Senate to run Defence and Foreign affairs as a ‘Council of the Isles’ Everything else can be devolved to the ‘National Parliaments’ and assemblies.

The Tories, Labour and the Social Democrats whoring themselves around are not acting in the ‘National Interest’ they are jockeying for party advantage, and in whose Nation are they acting for.

The Tories have very little interest in letting power slip through their fingers by endorsing PR on Principle and the Rainbow Alliance of losers would be abhorrent to the Electorate.

Yet again the politicians do not get it attempting a stitch up and ignoring the people of this country who hold the Sovereignty in their hands.

I say to Cameron, endorse PR coupled to an English Parliament for the next Election, and campaign for a New Settlement of the Country, that ensures the
Liberty of the Individual in a written Constitution- If you don’t the Tories will get rid of you in a trice for failing to deliver total victory.

Aw, they're tired



UPDATE: with another election likely in the autumn (once PR is through of course) does anyone really think Cameron can stand again? My money is on David Davis making a move, backed by Hague. One thing is for sure, it wasn't UKIP that lost the Tories the election, it was Dave.

Here we go again


In January of this year (2010), Paul Chambers from Doncaster in the United Kingdom was arrested by South Yorkshire police on suspicion of terrorism for posting an update to his Twitter feed saying "Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!" The context shows that he was exasperated at the likelihood of his flight being cancelled due to a small amount of snow fall. Some unknown party decided to take the message literally and phoned the police.

Paul was questioned for 7 hours while police tried to work out whether or not he was in fact a terrorist or had intended to perpetrate a bomb hoax. The case was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service who found no evidence of his intention to cause any recipient to believe there was a bomb threat but decided that it was in the "public interest" to prosecute him anyway. In February, Paul attended a hearing and pleaded guilty to a charge under the Communications Act 2003, which is peculiar in that it presents no burden of proof of intent.

He's just been found guilty and fined £1000. He now has a criminal record.

I'm trying to contact him to find out if he would like us to pay his fine for him.We're fucking good at this stuff.

UPDATE: Just spoken to Doncaster Magistrates. It appears the Judge was District Judge Johnathon Bennett
