Now that’s Education…..Black Africa Style!

By Mike Cunningham On July 28th, 2015 at 7:45 pm

The schoolkids in the City of Port Elizabeth are said to be rioting over the standards of education in the schools.

Nonsense, they seem to have a real grip on the fundamentals (click on thumbnails) of various disciplines, such as:-

anewtonfirstNewtons First Law,….. which states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion until compelled to change by an outside force

 

 

 

anewtonsecondNewtons Second Law…… Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).

 

 

anewtonthirdNewton’s Third Law ……For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.

Being a fairly rational soul, I just cannot fathom the reality which certain people, nearly all of whom are politicians or high-profile so-called sporting celebrities, seem to wish to reside in. Times without number, we see men and women in high office or public standing, brought low as a direct result of truly foolish, usually sexual but not always, behaviour. Is it simply hubris, that strange sensation which tells them that ‘they can get away with it’; or ‘no-one is watching’, or the last and probably the most foolish, ‘no-one can touch me because of who I am’?

The list is endless, but just the latest in a long sordid line are the revelations regarding Lord Sewel, some cocaine and a couple of prostitutes who were obviously more mercenary than usual. Here is a man who was at the very backbone of political life, and he throws it all away for what? Seemingly for very little indeed. John Buttifant The Lord Sewel, Baron Sewel CBE, BA, MScEcon, PhD, LL.D., by very virtue of the letters after his name and title, is not a daft man; he’s got a Degree, a Masters, a PhD, and he piloted through the Lords the whole Scottish Devolution kerfuffle. Okay, he didn’t do the last job totally by himself, but his finger was on the thread, and his team did the business. So why the hookers? Why the totally stupid faffing about with an orange bra? He’ll be lucky if he’s not doing time along with the ordinary criminals, except, if he is charged, it’ll probably be a stiff slap on; no better not, he may enjoy that!

The list of politicians who have grovelled for forgiveness just goes on, with the name of John Prescott, he who ‘WorkedForCunard’ featuring prominently, alongside such paragons as Jeremy Thorpe, cleared of plotting the murder of his homosexual lover, but really as guilty as sin; David Mellor for having taken a holiday courtesy of the PLO, as well as screwing some whore; Neil Hamilton for taking cash for questions from that paragon of virtue Mohammed Fayed. John Major, the man who would later become Prime Minister, screwing Edwina Currie in a four-year long affair: the mind boggles, not for the affair, but for risking everything for a screw with the Westminster Bicycle?

Move the red-lined ‘scope towards the ‘Celebs’ and the target area becomes almost too rich, with the ‘clean-living family man’ image of the wealthy Ryan Giggs ever-so-slightly tarnished after the super-injunction failed to stop the news of his sexual activity with some slapper, and then the bombshell of his eight-year affair with his brother’s wife; then the strangely-hushed reporting of the suicide of some football bloke called Gary Speed. or the strange case of the ex-wife of the Sultan of Brunei who claimed she could silence the UK Parliament over the facts of her abortion and gambling. (follow the link, and search for ‘Burby’) As I wrote, there are too many to select more than a few names, but the reader must get the picture. The ‘sportsmen’ or celebrity builds up a reputation with a sporting ability, which appears to draw a fan following; they parlay that ability into the big bucks, and then; what happens? Do they lose sight of their character? Do they realise the pressure which their screwing around places on their families? Do they even care?
The reason for my writing is important, for one of the very few freedoms given us by our rulers is under review. It is true that Sewel’s ruin would have been made public without the Act; but we would not have learned about the scope of the Expenses scandal without it. A great many stories have come under scrutiny because of the Freedom of Information Act, and the politicians have learned to detest this one Act, which makes them ‘reveal all’. A committee has been formed to scrutinise the Freedom of Information Act, and as Tony Blair himself stated that his one regret was proceeding with this Act, we can only watch and listen as our freedoms are once more curtailed, by the very people who said it would be so good!

FRANKLY MR BOYLE…

This is amusing.

Belfast Feile ‘can’t afford to axe comic Frankie Boyle’s gig’. Frankie Boyle will perform as planned at the Falls Park next week, organisers have insisted, despite the escalation of a campaign to have the controversial comic scrapped as a headline act.  It is understood that cancelling the Boyle gig would have financially ruined the festival.

The cost of refunding tickets and also honouring the comedian’s contract would cost the Feile tens of thousands of pounds. Feile organisers met with protesters, including the families of children with  Down’s syndrome who were left furious at the booking of Boyle, notorious for making tasteless jokes about those with disabilities.

How curious that the Festival organisers were unaware of Boyle’s act. Making tasteless jokes is what he does – and some of them are very funny. That said, the biggest joke is watching them swing in the breeze as they are confronted on the one hand by angry families and on the other by a big bill for compensation the socialist Mr Boyle.

ASIANS…

Let’s get one thing straight. Most Asian people living in the UK lead exemplary lives – they integrate well into our society and play an important role contributing much to British life. But not ALL do – and one group stands out as the exception – Islamists –  muslim men who refuse to operate to our laws. We see this week in week out as more and more horror stories emerge concerning the rape gangs that they form and prey upon young girls the length and breadth of the country. The media refuse to name and shame these groups by calling them out for what they patently are and instead we get the euphemism “Asian Men”  – thus slyly suggesting that Chinese, Japanese, Thai men etc may be involved. They aren’t and it is a SLUR on Asian people that the media inculcate. Then consider this story…

Sickening footage has been released showing a 29-year-old man being brutally beaten by a gang of Asian men on Tower Bridge in what police have described as a ‘cowardly attack’. The lone victim was on his way back from a friend’s wedding when he was approached by a group of ten to 12 men walking from the opposite direction on the bridge in central London. One member of the group can then be seen punching the victim in the back of the head as the unprovoked assault begins.

Needless to say, London has the greatest concentration of Muslim men in the UK.  I wish the media would stop insulting Asian people and just find the courage to come out and say that which they are all too aware of – these are MUSLIM gangs.

BUILDING UP PROBLEMS

The Left really HATES the idea of an innocent childhood. This explains nonsense such as..

Parents should discuss Bob the Builder’s sex life with their toddlers, a UN ambassador has claimed. Goedele Liekens, a former Miss Belgium, said Bob’s relationship with his business partner Wendy could be used to broach the topic with young children. Liekens, who is a psychologist and television presenter, said that in her own country they are ‘significantly more liberal’ in their approach to sex education.

I have a better idea. Let children watch silly cartoons WITHOUT having to bring sex into it!!!! If you are wondering who Goedele Liekens is ….

….I’m just wondering what were her special qualifications to become a “U.N. Ambassador”??

Fruit in supermarkets has some interesting features..

Tesco worker in the retailer’s Wokingham branch in England, last week found packages of suspected Class A drugs, while unloading a consignment of bananas. Police were called to investigate packets of white powder discovered in the store last Wednesday.

However police officers from the Thames Valley force have refused to comment on whether the suspected drugs found at the store in Finchampstead Road, Wokingham in Berkshire, could potentially have a street value worth more than £1m. A spokesperson for the supermarket said it is helping officers with their inquiries. Tesco’s website states most of its bananas come from farms in Costa Rica, before being transported to the group’s distribution centres in the UK.

Evidently somebody decided to use bananas to conceal something much more dangerous. But they obviously slipped up and didn’t hide their illicit cargo as well as they planned!

POLICE TO STOP POLICING…

By David Vance On July 28th, 2015 at 2:34 pm

In an exciting new development, I note that the Police have decided they would quite like to stop policing.

The public should not expect to see a police officer after crimes such as burglary, the head of the new National Police Chiefs’ Council has said.

How innovative.

Sara Thornton told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire budget cuts and the changing nature of criminality meant police in England and Wales had to prioritise.  She said it “could be” that if an iPad was stolen from a home an officer would not come round to investigate. There had to be a “conversation with the public” over priorities, she added. Ms Thornton has said that forces need radical reform if they are to survive budget cuts.

I read someone suggesting that one way to ENSURE the Police attend a burglary was for the caller to claim they had captured the burglar and were thinking of knocking him over the head with a stick! On a serious note, if the Police are really claiming that burglaries “may” not be the sort of thing they deal with, maybe we “may” conclude the Police need replaced?

SO WHO RUNS NORTHERN IRELAND..

By David Vance On July 28th, 2015 at 2:08 pm

The PR battle rages…

Northern Ireland’s secretary of state and deputy first minister are taking separate visits to the US to brief the government about the Stormont crisis. Speaking in advance of their trips, they proposed very different solutions.

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness said he would be asking US officials to help convince the UK government to take a new approach to welfare funding.  But Secretary of State Theresa Villiers will say those blocking welfare reform are putting more strain on the budget. Mr McGuinness travelled to Washington on Monday while Ms Villiers will begin a three-day visit to the US on Tuesday.

I’m not sure why either of them is in the USA. All money that Stormont receives for running it’s bloated Welfare budget comes from the UK taxpayer. Unless Obama seeks to chip in a few billion $$$ it has nothing to do with him. McGuinness is over there with the usual begging bowl approach – that’s all the Shinners know. I hope Villiers stays strong and ensures that real equality prevails – the NI welfare recipient should not enjoy better terms that those in GB.

FOR THE DROP

By David Vance On July 28th, 2015 at 2:04 pm

Can’t say I am overly concerned about this sentence?

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the debonair friend of Lord Mandelson and other European notables who returned to his father’s side during the 2011 revolution, was found guilty of war crimes by a court in the capital Tripoli.

He had appeared at hearings by video-link, as he was captured – in late 2011 – by a militia from the town of Zintan, which is fighting Tripoli-based brigades in the country’s civil war.

Also sentenced to death were Col Gaddafi’s notorious security chief and brother-in-law, Abdullah Senussi, accused by some of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing, and his prime minister, Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi. They appeared in person, having been extradited before security collapsed in Libya from neighbouring countries.

Libya did not function with Gaddafi and it doesn’t function without Gaddafi. If they want to hang Saig, off they toodle.

IN DEFENCE OF SEWEL

By Pete Moore On July 27th, 2015 at 6:16 pm

We do get our knickers in a twist over some odd things.

“Baron John Sewel, 69 — Deputy Speaker of the Lords and once a key ally of ex-PM Tony Blair — stripped naked for one sleazy romp at his rent-protected London flat” said The Sun. There but for the grace of God (err sorry, that was another piece, let’s move on).

How undignified. It’s one thing being caught snorting charlie off a tart’s tits and wearing her bra, but when the press gets your title wrong, well that’s embarrassing.

Sewel is the Villain of the Week, but is what he did that bad? Sex is not illegal, and buying and selling stuff which is not illegal is not illegal, but the State says that buying and selling sex is illegal. Which is clearly illogical and daft. And many people out there tutting about Sewel have done drugs too, so we’ll have none of that hypocrisy.

If we have to have politicians then give me a coke-snorting sex addict who’ll leave me alone. Everyone from the Prime Minister up is calling for Sewel to resign. That’s the PM who worked so hard to turn Libya into a blood-soaked hellhole. If Cameron had spent those months enjoying himself instead, Libya wouldn’t now be a catastrophe.

And why is nobody talking about how Sewel spent his welfare (for that is what his salary is)? When a single mother on welfare buys a flat screen TV, let alone drugs, she’s likely to end up in the press. It must be different for politicians. Nobody is calling for the Lords’ £300-a-day, just for signing in, to be slashed.

Then there’s the further welfare: Sewel’s flat is in Dolphin Square. This is prime real estate beloved of politicians and we have to subsidise it on pain of violence. They get a discount of almost 2 grand a month, courtesy of tax-victims. Oh, but if you earn half of Sewel’s income and live in a council flat, George Osborne has decided that you’ll pay the full market rent.

Yes, it’s definitely different for politicians.

In the end Sewel is just another parasite politician dragged out for ritual humiliation. His real offence, apart from stealing from tax-victims, is to betray his wife. For that alone he deserves to be horsewhipped.
