As my old Grandmother stated……

Adams admitted the IRA’s kangaroo courts for sex offenders meant they were ‘ill-equipped’ to deal with the issue.

He wrote on his blog: ‘This included very sensitive areas such as responding to demands to take action against rapists and child abusers. The IRA on occasion shot alleged sex offenders or expelled them,’ he said.

‘While this may have been expedient at the time it was not appropriate.

‘Victims were left without the necessary social service support and abusers without supervision. It ultimately failed victims and the community alike. That is a matter of profound regret for me, and many other republicans’.

Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are!


…in sickness, and in health…..

Before posting on a subject which is worthy of at least some discussion, before being cast into the cess-pool from which it has arisen, I thought I would lighten the atmosphere by posting a photo of what must be the most enchanting small child’s smile published this year.








A long-awaited bill being published by the former Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer has parallels with the 1967 Abortion Act by placing responsibility for authorising the action in the hands of two doctors.

legalise assisted dying

upholding the sanctity of human life without regard to suffering caused in the process

“ethical turning point”

be promoting anguish and pain, the very opposite of a Christian message of hope.”

the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” should not mean prolonging suffering.

in the face of the reality of needless suffering.”

In writing about this pernicious, dangerous and illiberal Assisted Dying Bill, I would attempt to explain my thoughts. The quotations, taken from people who support this Bill, do not state the truth about what is proposed. The Bill is written and introduced to change the Law. Ignore all the emotional rubbish held within those quotations, the supporters of this Bill want, wish and work towards one thing, and one thing only :-



I knew the girl I met was for me some ten seconds after we first saw each other, but, upon my return after my last trip to sea, I laid siege until she agreed to marry me.  We were gloriously, blissfully happy, our family grew and blossomed; until I was finally made aware that my beloved wife was seriously ill, and I had to have her committed. My wife of now some forty-seven years has been suffering from the effects of schizophrenia for some forty-three of those years. For many years, after she was released to me from the mental hospital where she was treated, she was back to some 95-97.5% of the woman whom I fell in love with, all those years ago in one chance evening at the Empire Ballroom in Leicester Square; but things went downhill some ten or twelve-odd years ago.

She now sits upstairs on her bedside, anxiously awaiting my help for even the slightest move to swivel across to her commode. She depends upon me for everything, and I would be a strange caricature of a man if I ever deserted her. My philosophy of life is now, and has been for many years; ‘you play the hand you are dealt’, and this is what I do for the woman I love. But what might happen to my love if I should die before her? Being totally dependent upon others for everything, and I do mean everything; more than likely she would be headed straight for a care facility, would she not be a prime target for these do-gooders who believe firmly that they know what is best for one who cannot articulate her needs and wishes?

I once visited an old-aged people’s home/complex in Islington to help a mate of mine who was compiling an electrical tender document, and I will be honest when I state that I have never witnessed anything more dispiriting in my entire life. I entered the main room/hall of the home, and there must have been at least seventy or eighty elderly people seated there, but the strange thing was the fact that they were all seated at seventy or eighty different angles to one another; there were two televisions blaring away at opposite corners of the room, no-one was watching either, and this was the first time that I had ever witnessed what is called the ‘Thousand-mile-stare’, where the person’s eyes are focussed over a huge distance away. The staff could safely be described as uniformly useless, as I gathered when talking to the one helpful staff member, a maintenance bloke, who simply sniffed when asked his opinion of his fellow workers, then replied, ‘when they aren’t in ever-extended meetings discussing how much they would not be doing, they are forever looking after themselves; with not much time left for the poor sods in the armchairs and beds’! I spotted one lady, seated in a wheelchair, trapped in the space between a wall and a folding door. She had been left by the ‘caring’ staff member, and forgotten as breakfast had been served, and no-one missed her, until an outsider arrived and gently wheeled her out of her confinement. She was so pathetically grateful to me, a stranger for helping her. Needless to state, I made my own feelings pretty plain to the management, but I don’t believe that my anger even registered!

Reference is made in one of the earlier quotations to the Abortion Act of 1967. I would simply remind ATW readers that one of the ruling guidelines in 1967 was that two doctors should examine and confer with the pregnant woman before agreeing and signing to that abortion procedure. Those guidelines are now so loose that a NURSE can authorise an abortion.  I would remind ATW readers that, in just four years, there have been 731801 babies, foetuses; call them what you will, killed quite legally in this so-called civilised country of ours! Just consider what a bunch of politicians and their fellow bottom-feeding compatriots could do once the Euthanasia Bill becomes Law?

The Assisted Dying Bill, which in reality should be renamed the ‘Euthanasia Bill’ or the even more explanatory The Inconvenience Bill’ or the  ‘Let us get rid of the Old, the Ill, the Insane, the Sufferers from incurable and painful Diseases, those who alarm us by their very longevity, and the Memories of what faces us all Bill’ is a shameful and destructive piece of legislation, and we, along with the dangerous do-gooder Clowns who propose and back this tawdry attempt to change, by euphemism alone, the settled Law, should be ashamed that Legislation as bad, corrupt and disgraceful as this Bill undoubtedly is, even passes across the threshold of the House of Lords in these troubled times.


and light a candle, just for me?

As with many others, I really do like finding myself, once again, right on the money when I post even when discussing a tragedy.

Little Mikaeel Kular had only a short span of life on this uncaring planet. I wrote a short epistle on the sheer stupidity of the police and the ‘Community’ organising searches when he was ‘discovered missing’ early one morning.

The opening of the murder trial of his mother  reflects the brutal truth that his life was snuffed out by his mother Rosdeep Adekoya over a four-day period of savagery.

Just think, if the police had acted upon instinct and local knowledge, and searched the distant property earlier; if the ‘social workers‘ had had more than two active brain cells between the whole bunch; all those flowers, cuddly toys and candles would not have littered the grounds and grass, the ‘Community’ would not have had the satisfaction of wallowing in the collective ‘grief’ process;  and this callous excuse for a mother would have been locked up just that little bit sooner!


…and we can guarantee….

Hands on collective hearts, that:-



Lessons have been learned!

Amy Howson, 6 months: Father broke daughter’s spine in anger at her crying

Ryan Hawkins, 4: Stabbed in revenge for affair

Amy Philcox, 7, and Owen Philcox, 3: Gassed in the car after divorce

Jade, 10, John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six, and Jayden, five, all died in their beds. Elder sibling Duwayne Philpott 13, died in hospital two days later.

little Mathew and Carla Stevenson choosing sweets in a baker’s shop, just four hours before their father slit their throats?

Little Peter Connelly, whose parentally-inflicted injuries included a broken back before his brutalised body succumbed

…and over one hundred more of the saddest stories, repeated over and over again !

Just for your own information, from what I have been able to research, in the time period covered by these tragic and totally-avoidable deaths, two social workers have lost their jobs, one ‘social worker’ regained her post after a Tribunal hearing; a further One senior manager has been sacked; and that is the sum total of people who have been disciplined in any way whatsoever for their gross negligence.

The details are shocking even for those of us who regard our communist “hospitals” as little more than human abattoirs.

Examples included patients being so thirsty that they had to drink water from vases and receptionists left to decide which patients to treat in A&E.

Nurses were not trained properly to use vital equipment, while inexperienced doctors were put in charge of critically ill patients.

Some patients needing pain relief either got it late or not at all, leaving them crying out for help, and there were cases where food and drinks were left out of reach.

What about prosecutions of those NHS butchers who killed hundreds of innocents? Forget about it. In true regime style not a single negligent, corrupt, heartless bastard has even been disciplined for this incredible barbarity. What we’ve learned is that in order to meet targets handed down by the central state, costs were cut, staff levels were cut and hundreds left to die. No doubt many thousands suffered horrendously, This to advance the lucrative careers of state apparatchiks. Nothing can possibly change that incentive while health rationing is collectivised.

Tonight we learn that five more of these inhumane organisations are under investigation. It’s been said in these here parts before, and the killing wards of Staffordshire prove it more necessary than ever: do everything you possibly can to avoid “treatment” in the state system.

The Emperor Obama “justifies” his murder of American citizens.

NBC reports that it has obtained a secret 16-page Department of Justice memo containing, among other details, the justification the Obama Administration uses to kill American citizens by drone strikes. Michael Isikoff, NBC News, writes (my emphasis):

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” — even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.

The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.[…]

Family memories: Mary Travers’ graduation portrait

Paul Travers, the brother of young Mary murdered by the IRA gang that included Mary McArdle now in high office care of Sinn Fein at Stormont, has this to say in the press;

We were brought up in a Christian environment. Family was everything. We were taught to love our neighbours, as ourselves. This meant cherishing the lives of others and respecting their right to express themselves and go about their own business.

Only God had the right to take a life. God had no time for the Armalite and the ballot box. In any event, the concept didn’t make sense. Pope John Paul II had told us, on his bended knees, that murder was murder. It was profoundly effecting on me when a family friend from Sandy Row presented us with a plate commemorating the Pope’s visit.

The “peace-makers” within the IRA and Sinn Fein never saw it this way. In their world it was right to carry out cowardly murders against defenseless people.

It became more and more apparent as I grew up, that they believed one rule should apply to them and another for the rest of us. Their cold-hearted callousness horrified me. The Kingsmill massacre, if undertaken in Bosnia or Libya would surely rank as a crime against humanity.

When my dad accepted appointment as a Resident Magistrate in 1979, he had to stop attending his beloved Thursday night novena at the Clonard Monastery on the Falls Road. I noted later that Gerry Adams mentioned how much he, himself, liked to attend.

Make sure you read all Paul has to say, it is so terribly moving. It was a terrible crime that the IRA committed when they killed his sister Mary and yet, unbelievably, those behind it have been rewarded. In Murder Inc sadly that is how it works. As Paul Travers says, there are no murals dedicated to his sister, unlike the many to the TERRORIST scum that carried out these atrocities. We live in a fallen world and some of the lowest are now elevated to the highest parts of our society. We will reap what we sow.

Thought you might like to listen to the words of Sinn Fein “Culture” Minister Caral Ni Chuilin’s special adviser Mary McArdle. As you know, McArdle is a convicted murderer having been part of the IRA gang that murdered 22 year old Mary Travers as she left Mass with her family. A few days ago, McArdle said she “regrets” that the murder happened, claiming it was “a mistake”. (They only meant to murder Mary’s father, so not so bad then ) But here is a video of McArdle in less nuanced mode. In it she plainly states that she “wanted to kill the bastards” – referring to Prison Officers. Her words – delivered direct to camera. She wanted to kill.
