Preside over at least 1200 deaths?
Then walk away with a £2m pension pot
As arrogant as it is, there was never going to be any other outcome. No you cannot resist. If you attempt to keep your income from being looted and given to him you will be visited by men ready to do violence on his behalf.

Step forward … two African rioters! Yep, it’s our old friend the “right to a family life” yet again.
The Telegraph can reveal for the first time how the two rioters – who were both made an example of by the criminal courts for their roles in the 2011 disorder – have since overturned the Home Office’s attempts to have them sent home.
One was convicted of violent disorder after rampages involving attacks on shops and cars by a gang in two Home Counties towns, while the other was convicted of burglary for his part in the London riots.
Right, so over a year ago the Home Secretary introduced rules “that made it “absolutely clear” that those who have committed a crime, broken immigration rules or cannot support themselves must not be allowed to stay”, but nothing’s changed in reality.
Ever get the feeling you’re being lied to?

Marching through the institutions?
I’ve always thought that religion and the modern military were a strange couple. Nevertheless, it sounds like the Pentagon is being advised a real anti-Christian headbanger. One consequence: a Pentagon statement that Christian proselytisers “could face court martial for promoting their faith”.
If there’s anything in the report (I’ve not seen it elsewhere), some people are going to go completely mental.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a monster. The idea of giving him their money, to fund his life and actions, would fill the people of Massachusetts with horror.
Yet that’s what happened. Except they didn’t voluntarily fund him. They were forced to do so, because the state government put him on welfare.

Are you still paying for this trash?
The state broadcaster wasted no time in becoming a vast national troller, filling the airwaves with every old Lefty they could drag up. I genuinely wish I had a TV Licence to burn.

Great news from America!
The Dow hit all-time highs today while house prices are roaring ahead, and all it took was this much newly printed money to achieve it:
That’s all there is to it. There are no market fundamentals in play. All that new money had to go somewhere, and this time it’s the NYSE and housing. Behind it is the greater fool theory, the belief that you’ll be able to flip what you’ve bought at a higher price. There’ll be plenty of greater fools when Ben Bernanke stops the money presses. As well as housing and stocks, fuel and food are racing ahead too. At some point there will be price inflation generally, everywhere, and the only way back from that is for Bernanke to stop printing. That’s when the bubbles pop and the greater fools are revealed. The only certainty is that when it happens some will say that “free markets have failed”.

Sir David Nicholson, Chief Commissar of the Mid-Staffs NHS Primary Slaughterhouse, today admitted “personal failings” for the 1200 innocents killed by his regime. In testimony to the House of Commons Health Select Committee, he denied that people aren’t held to account in the NHS and that he won’t be resigning to spend more time with his enormous pension. That’s accountability, apparatchik style. No, accountability is for lesser functionaries, who under Nicholson were bullied and intimidated into silence.
In fact, so keen is the one time member of the Communist Party of Great Britain (you really couldn’t make it up) to hang on, today he threw his erstwhile Labour Party comrades under the tractor. Sir David said that “national targets meant that NHS managers had to concentrate on issues like casualty waiting times and hospital “superbugs” like MRSA”, and that “during that period, across the NHS as a whole, patients were not the centre of the way the system operated.”
Well there’s the problem. It’s the collective which matters to the bureaucracy. It’s covering your parasitical arse which matters to the bureaucrat. Patients do not matter. The NHS remains a Stalinist collective driven by state-central commands. It’s all bumper turnip crops and iron ore production, not what consumers want. Until we get our minds around that simple fact there’s not the slightest thing which will change.

It’s difficult to imagine that an apologist for National Socialist mass murder would be treated politely, yet the apologist for communist mass murder (and friend of the Cambridge Spy Ring), the execrable Eric Hobsbawm, was feted, showered with trinkets, awarded a Companion of Honour and is eulogised still by equally execrable politicians.
Asked by the Canadian academic and politician Michael Ignatieff on television whether the deaths of 20 million people in the USSR – not to mention the 55 to 65 million victims of Mao’s Great Leap Forward – might have been justified if this Red utopia had been realised, Hobsbawm muttered in the affirmative.
The maxim is that you should say only good things about the dead. Ok, Eric Hobsbawm’s dead – good. The Commentator has a suitably honest appraisal of Hobsbawm, although it’s a touch unfair on much more pleasant David Irving.
Update: How fitting that Ed Miliband (now there’s a surprise) described Hobsbawm as “a lovely man”, and Tony Blair described him as “a giant of progressive politics”. Yeah, many progressives were happy propagandists for evil.

Watching the balcony charade at the Ecuadorian Embassy, where the political pygmy which is the accused rapist Julian Assange primped and posed before the t.v. cameras of the world: and I pondered on the fate of another ‘prisoner of conscience’, a real man this time, whose memory has been virtually obliterated by time and the demands of a liberal media who do not like being reminded of the harsh truths of recent history.
Does the name Cardinal Mindzenty ring a far-away bell in your memories? It should, because he became the figurehead for all that was seen and known to be right in the Europe of the hell-pits which had been constructed by the minions of Stalin’s Russian armoured bullies in the vassal States surrounding Soviet Russia. Mindzenty, himself an ordinary priest who, ordained in 1915 and consecrated bishop of Vesprem in 1944, was appointed archbishop of Esztergom, the primate of Hungary, the following year. In 1946 Pope Pius XII made him a cardinal. Controversy and arrest were nothing new to Mindzenty, as he was first arrested in 1919 for condemning a State takeover of Catholic schools, and again in 1944 for incitement against the Nazis. When the Soviets seized power in Hungary, and installed their puppet government, the first name on the ‘arrest list’ was that of the prickly Cardinal, as they knew that he would not bow down before the false gods of Communism and the State. He was tortured and ‘brainwashed’, confessing to the fabricated ‘crimes’ he had been accused of, but the pictures flashed around the globe bore the lie; as the strong-featured man who had walked tall into prison, had become a pale, shattered ghost whose very eyes spoke volumes of the punishments dealt him by the torturers of the AVH.
He was freed from prison in the 1956 Hungarian uprising, and sought refuge in the American Embassy, where he remained until 1971, protected by Diplomatic Privilege. He travelled to Rome, thence on to Vienna, where he lived in exile until his death in 1975. His presence in that Embassy building was a constant thorn in the side of the Communists, but he refused to budge, and the Communists never dared to even threaten to break the boundaries of Diplomatic privilege: unlike a Yorkshire-bred moron who masquerades as Her Majesty’s Secretary of State, living in a dream world all of his own, who seemed to think that by threatening to remove Diplomatic Status from a Knightsbridge building, he could remove a thorn in his own foot!

UK Enrichment News!
Every school in England could be sent free copies of the Koran, Michael Gove has said. The Education secretary said it would be “fantastic” if a rich benefactor would support sending out copies of the Islamic holy text to schools.
Hey Tories, I’d be much obliged if you can do something useful before the next election, like shooting yourselves in the head.
