Some people think I’ve got it in for the fat, parasitic doughnut-munchers. They’re right of course. I’m just astounded that a few remaining Britons retain an ounce of respect for something which doesn’t deserve it. Check it out –
Police want to identify three youngsters who “blacked up” as gollys for a town’s summer parade
Donna Plowman, who chairs the Wick Gala Committee, said: “Police approached us on Monday as they were making inquiries into certain participants after receiving concerns about people dressing up as Golliwogs and the Jackson Five.
Police Scotland confirmed it is carrying out an investigation but would not comment further.
Hunt down these criminals!
Sorry, what am I supposed to respect here? Impersonating the Jackson Five is now a crime, is it? To anyone with a brain, the police long ago became the politically-correct state’s enforcers. Chasing gollywigs with charity tins is not a job for the self-respecting, but then who would become a doughnut-muncher if they had any self respect in the first place? This is why they’re now warning that serious crimes, such as burglaries, will increasingly not be visited or investigated. The state has so many thought crimes on the books that most of its enforcers are sitting in front of PCs, a mega-sized bucket of doughnuts to hand, looking out for what people are saying online.
And no, I really don’t respect that.

I see IRA boss Gerry Adams has been indulging in the usual pathetic begging bowl politics of Sinn Fein. He bleats….
Last night Sinn Fein leader Mr Adams said the end of the IRA campaign a decade ago “broke the long cycle of conflict and opened up new political possibilities”. “But the progress that was made over many years is now in severe jeopardy, not least because of the attitude of Mr Cameron,” he said. “The political structures negotiated so painstakingly as part of the Good Friday Agreement face collapse as a result of the British Government’s ideologically driven austerity agenda.
“By slashing hundreds of millions of pounds from the finances of the North’s Executive, the British Government has attacked the ability of the political institutions to deliver for citizens.”
Isn’t it risible? Adams – a hard leftist of course – has no concept of budgets and why Government must live within its spending means. He is basically slyly threatening a return to war if the UK government treats the people of Northern Ireland in the same way as it treats the rest of the UK! Sinn Fein is keen to ensure that the massive welfare drip to its core constituents remains unaffected by fiscal reality. This is what I call “Provonomics” aka financial illiteracy.

Delicious fun watching the death-throes of the Labour Party.
“Labour has been plunged into fresh acrimony after leftwingers joked about Ed Balls’ defeat and Jeremy Corbyn vowed to keep on fighting even if he lost the party leadership.
MPs reacted furiously after Corbyn supporters last night ridiculed Balls’ loss at the general election, with one shadow minister declaring that he felt ‘sick’ at the jibes. The jeers, which centred on the former shadow chancellor’s failure to oppose Tory cuts, came at a packed meeting in central London with Corbyn and Diane Abbott as guest speakers.
London Mayoral candidate Abbott also mocked Balls saying ‘remember him?’ and denouncing him and Ed Miliband
for failing to challenge Conservative austerity plans. Corbyn, who was again top of a new leaked poll among party members today, told the event that he would not retreat from frontline Labour politics should he fail to clinch the leadership in just over one month’s time.
“We have lit a fuse, we have lit a spark, and it’s not going to die, it’s not going to go away,” the Islington North MP vowed.
The problem with lighting fuses is that sometimes they end up in an explosion and what we now see is Labour being pulled to the hard left. Abbot, Corbyn – these are creatures of the Left who truly believe they lost the 2015 election because they were not LEFT enough. They are blind to the fact that the UK electorate is centrist and will NOT vote for left wing Party. Tony Blair, for all his sins, did understand this fundamental point which is why he postured as centrist. He won three general elections in a row. His name is now dirt and the emergence of hard left Labour ensures they may never get back into power. I am grateful for this and hope they continue to eviscerate themselves politically.

The problem with SOCIALISED healthcare systems such as the NHS is that it transfers responsibility for one’s health from the individual to the State. And then the inevitable problems come along…
Obese people who refuse medical treatment to help them lose weight could have their benefits cut, the Prime Minister will announce today. David Cameron will launch a review to work out the cost to taxpayers and the economy of ‘preventable’ conditions such as obesity and drug and alcohol addiction. He has asked a government health adviser to examine plans to force people with health problems to undertake treatment when claiming benefits.
At one level, I don’t think the State has any business telling anyone “to lose weight” or change their lifestyle to accommodate prevailing political or health orthodoxy BUT when the State is picking the bill up, and that bill is zooming ever upwards, you can understand where the Prime Minister is coming from?
The fatties out there want the taxpayer to pick up the tab for their gluttony. Same applies to the Drug addicts and the Alcoholics. Well, no thanks. So in this regard I support the thinking of the Government, albeit for a different reason than them.

Media reporting that around 1500 illegal immigrants tried to storm the Channel Tunnel last night and force their way into the UK. Further, it is estimated that around 3000 illegals are camped in this area and that these people are ” from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Afghanistan.”
Now then, a cursory glance at the globe shows that the UK is thousand of miles away from these countries, with many other countries to be found in-between. So, WHAT is it about the UK that encourages them to swarm around Calais in France to get INTO the UK? The answer is simple. Once here, they are most unlikely to be deported and the Welfare benefits are lovely. So they climb on lorries, they board trains – they do ANYTHING possible to enter the UK.
How do we deal with this? Well, we are giving the French £7m to help them cope with the problem at their end. I have a better idea. Armed UK guards. Zero tolerance of ANY illegals. That would send the message that we are at least serious about stopping the deluge.

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.

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.

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!

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.
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?
