suffer the children……

O Lord who watches over children in the present life and in the world to come because of their simplicity and innocence of mind, abundantly satisfying them with a place in Abraham’s bosom, bringing them to live in radiantly shining places where the spirits of the righteous dwell: receive in peace the soul of Your little servant Jaden Meck, for You Yourself have said, “Let the little children come to Me, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Amen.

I see that Jeremy Clarkson, the Top Gear presenter and all round good egg, is under fire for allegedly branding Gordon Brown a ‘one-eyed Scottish idiot’ during a press conference in Australia. The BBC presenter is also accused of calling the Prime Minister a liar. And the problem is…..?

The Way We Were

THERE are those who’d have us believe that British society is pretty much unchanged these last few decades, that social mores and attitudes have always been just so. The argument amounts to attempted persuasion towards our ruling neo-Marxist terror, “accept it, life wasn’t much different in the past at all.” But then you read of the very recent past:

SIR – I trained at St Thomas’s Hospital in the late 1960s. Early morning prayers were led by the ward sister, with all the nurses kneeling, before duties began. We never had one complaint from patients.

 … and you’re reminded how wrong these people are. Our society has undergone a deep and profound revolution in an astonishingly short period of time.

And it’s not for the better.

I was reading about how a grieving father has buried his teenage son in the back garden of his home so he would be “close to him forever”. Robert Milloy, 18, died after he was hit by a train at the level crossing in his home village of Gatehead, Ayrshire. Yesterday he was laid to rest under a lawn at his father’s house, which is near the railway line where the tragedy happened. Robert Milloy, a farmworker, was on a lunchbreak when he was killed on January 23. It is thought that at the time of the accident the teenager may have been distracted by either music on his headphones or his mobile phone. How sad.

I can only imagine the pain the father is going through at this awful loss and I suppose being buried in your own property is fair enough (So long as it’s not a flat).

More manipulation from Government. This time round they are pretending that they are saving British jobs for British graduates! Oh really?

“The Government may restrict the number of highly skilled migrants allowed into Britain because ministers fear many of the record 400,000 graduates leaving university this summer will fail to find work in the recession. Phil Woolas, the Immigration minister, wants to tighten the points-based system for people from outside the EU so they do not take jobs that might otherwise go to British graduates. Between 10,000 and 18,000 well-qualified foreigners are expected to come to the UK this year to look for work without having a job lined up…”

What a load of rubbish!

First, why discriminate against well qualified foreigners in order that those graduating with worthless UK degrees can claim the jobs. It is NOT non-EU “foreigners” that is the problem but rather an Education policy driven by radical egalitarianism that is churning out some of the most poorly educated graduates one could imagine. And if there are 10-15,000 well qualified foreigners from OUTSIDE the EU, I wonder how many come here from within the EU and how many British jobs do they take? I can think of some really well educated Australian and American young people in their early ’20’s who come here to gain work experience and who are truly excellent for our economy. Do we shut the door on them in order that Romanian and Bulgarians can come in and get the jobs?

Is that sensible policy? This government has an unworkable immigration policy and an unbelievably bad education policy. Woolas is a goon.

I suppose it is too much to expect the British Government to be able to correctly fly the British flag?

“The government has been criticised for displaying the Union flag upside down at the signing of a trade agreement. A plastic flag was flown incorrectly for a ceremony involving Gordon Brown, Chinese premier Wen Jiabao and Trade Secretary Lord Mandelson. The Flag Institute said it was “concerned” about the mistake and Tory MP Andrew Rosindell called it “an unbelievable flaw in protocol”. There is a specific way of hanging it, with the thick white parts of the diagonal cross nearest the flagpole being placed above the thinner white parts. But, at the treaty-signing ceremony in Downing Street on Monday, a flag was displayed upside down.”

Had the government flown the Chinese flag upside down, do you think THAT might have caused it some embarrassment?

I think this speaks volumes for the set of priorities which some within British policing pursue…

“A police station has come under fire after officers replaced its Union Jack with a gay rights flag. New Met police chief Sir Paul Stephenson was said to be outraged when he was told the gay emblem was raised outside Limehouse Station in east London. It replaced the Union Jack and was put up by officers in recognition of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Month celebrated in February.”

I’d like to know what disciplinary action is being taken against those officers who did this. 

Shouldn’t they be prosecuted for this blatant lack of procedure?

If they broke the law by raising the Gay Flag shouldn’t they be penalised?

Time for unemployed Brits to get on their bike and go abroad?

“Lord Mandelson sparked fury yesterday after telling British workers to find jobs in Europe instead of complaining about competition from foreigners. As wildcat strikes over cheap foreign labour threatened to spread, the Business Secretary fanned the flames by insisting it would be wrong to keep British jobs only for British workers.  It would be a huge mistake to retreat from a policy where, within the rules, UK companies can operate in Europe and European companies can operate here,” he said. “Protectionism would be a sure-fire way of turning recession into depression.” It came as Gordon Brown condemned the strikes as “indefensible” and stressed that the UK was  part of a single European market. Europe Minister Caroline Flint also backed Lord Mandelson’s stance. She said: “It is important to remember that open European labour markets also allow British firms and workers to take advantage of contracts and opportunities elsewhere in the EU.”

So, are these people protesting xenophobes? Or are they slowly realising that being part of the EU carries a very high price?

At my time of life, or as one commenter called it ‘older people’ on a previous post, I did indeed think I had seen most things in this convoluted, pretentious, puffed-up country of ours, but once again, the facts bear out the truth; there is always something new and truly daft coming around the corner!


I was ambling around our local mall / shopping centre / modern cathedral with my wife this morning when I spotted the ultimate staff wanted sign in the window of a magic tricks shop, which read, and I truly do not exaggerate:-


Wanted; part-time Sundays only assistant.

Hours 10-4

Hey, did you know that couples who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment? So says the government’s Green adviser!

Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population. “I think we will work our way towards a position that says that having more than two children is irresponsible. It is the ghost at the table. We have all these big issues that everybody is looking at and then you don’t really hear anyone say the “p” word.”

I suggest Mr Porritt takes his interesting ideas and engages in dilaogue with Britain’s colourful and oh so fertile Muslims, who sorry to say are having many more than just two children. Once he’s won their hearts and minds, he can then use his contacts to stop the government’s IVF programme…then we can pay attention to him! In the meantime go forth and multiply…
