I note that the write up on Susan Boyle’s attempt to conquer on ‘Britain’s got Talent’ in the august pages of the Washington Post referred to Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly , as the possibly bemused readers would not have known who, or indeed what, was compering the show if they had been referred to as ‘Ant and Dec’!
Perhaps it was just as well, as this distinctly unfunny duo always arouses, in the mind of this commentator at least, a violent urge to swing a Viking axe, along with an urge to chant ‘Kill, Kill’ every time they lurch into view on the small screen!
Perhaps it’s just me! I prefer talent as opposed to native ‘Wit'; if what they exude can be called that!
As for Susan, if she gets the right agent, and avoids the massed efforts of some thousand ‘make-over’ artists, I reckon she might conquer America. She certainly couldn’t do any worse than Barack!

Now I think we might even be able to call the imminent Barry Bennett interview an exclusive…

Just a quick reminder for ATW readers that I will be interviewing MEP Candidates Barry Bennett of the BNP this evening and William Legge of UKIP tomorrow morning. The questions thread is here, so if you didn’t pick it up first time around feel free to go and add questions for me to retrieve later on. Will post the audio as swiftly as possible once it is available.

I see that ONE of the UDA terror group cells – in Antrim – has declared that it WILL decommission its illegal arms by the deadline of August. How benevolent of them. And the price required for these fine gentlemen to behave decently? Here’s what the UDA “spokesman” had to say….
He would not give an inventory of how many weapons the UDA in South East Antrim still controls. However he said De Chastelain would be given enough proof to convince the public that their arms were put beyond use. “The whole community will be put at ease by what is going to happen with the arms and our wholly peaceful intent,” he said.
He added that some outstanding issues, such as a welfare programme for “ex-combatants”, would have to be worked out with the British government in the run-up to the arms handover: “There could be up to 2,000 ex-UDA members living in this area, many of whom need jobs, have health problems related to time in jail or other issues connected to the conflict, who all have to be looked after.”
Just so much crap. Round them up, throw them in jail – do NOT appease the scum of the earth by paying them off. It’s plain wrong – even here in the Inferno.

Interesting to read that the UK’s top surgeon has claimed that patients lives will be put at risk and hospitals forced to close because of new European rules that will limit the hours doctors can work.
John Black, president of the Royal College of Surgeons, said the European Working Time Directive (EWTD) would be catastrophic for the NHS. The EWTD, which fully comes into force on August 1, limits the number of hours doctors and surgeons can work each week to 48 but doctors and especially junior doctors often work longer hours than this.
Mr Black said reducing the hours of doctors and surgeons could lead to an increase in waiting lists and hospitals shutting.
“Unless the Government comes to its senses the result will be catastrophic for the NHS with patient safety on a knife edge, surgeons not being properly trained, waiting lists going up again and even hospitals closing.
“We have already reached the point where patients’ health has been endangered. There is a serious risk of units in hospitals having to close to emergencies, with resulting chaos, not to mention the danger and inconvenience brought about by patients going long distances to a hospital that has enough staff to stay open.
“This is truly a nightmare, and I despair that the Government will not take action.”
It’s not that the Government can’t take action, it’s that the Government hwon’t take action because it has sold out to the EU and that the fundamental issue here is not the Working Time Directive but rather are continued captivity in the EU.

My eye was caught by a single item in a news round-up this morning which, to me at least, indicates the type and calibre of people who interfere in the everyday running of this, Our Nation.
Can anyone honestly state that, if the same people were in power in 1939, we would have declared war against Nazi Germany over their invasion of Poland.
And of course, if such a war had indeed been declared, would this man have been declared fit for flying duties in all respects, instead of probably being consigned to an Institution on the grounds his balance of mind was too disturbed, on Health & Safety grounds?

Can’t wait to see the outcome of the local Council elections in England and Wales next week where it looks like a complete meltdown for Labour. Consider this…
Labour faces being virtually wiped off the map in the county council elections this week, marking one of the lowest points in the party’s history. Last night a poll of voting intentions at the next general election put Labour in third place.
In the ICM poll for the Sunday Telegraph, just 22 per cent said they intended to vote Labour, against 25 per cent for the Lib Dems and 40 for the Conservatives. Senior Tory sources claimed last night that they are confident Labour’s last remaining shire councils will fall to the Conservatives or to no overall control in polling day on Thursday. Cabinet ministers also privately warned that the 4 June poll will be one of the worst in memory for Labour, going beyond the usual lowering of expectations by the governing party. It would leave Labour with no control of England’s county council seats.
Just think – Labour vanquished from having any say of any English Council! What a great result for the UK. The people of England will lead the way by throwing off the burder of Hard Labour and the sooner it comes the better.

Wonder how the Jew-haters will spin THIS one as being Israel’s fault?
A dawn clash in the Israeli-occupied West Bank earlier today killed three Palestinian policemen, two Hamas gunmen and a bystander. The incident was among the bloodiest internal Palestinian confrontations since US-backed President Mahmoud Abbas pressed a security drive and revived peace talks with Israel after breaking with Hamas over its 2007 takeover of the Gaza Strip.
Security officials said police raided the town of Qalqilya before dawn to arrest Hamas members, touching off gunfights. They named the dead Hamas men as Mohammad Yasin and Mohammad Samman. The names of the dead policemen were not immediately given. The owner of a home in which Hamas gunmen had been hiding was also killed, according to Palestinian security officials.

If Sinn Fein topped the poll in the European election and two nationalists were elected it would be a “disaster for unionism”, the DUP has warned Launching its manifesto on Thursday, the party warned unionists against staying at home and not voting. The DUP has come in first in every European election since 1979.
Have I got news for Banshee Diane. If Sinn Fein/IRA top the poll it MIGHT just be the wake-up call unionism needs to stop listening to the sectarian vichyism of the DUP. The DUP is a willing partner in government with Sinn Fein and needs exposed for the two-faced sickening hypocrites they so clearly are.

What more can be said other than a scaffold at Westminster green seems the only solution…..?
Labour MP Frank Cook claimed on expenses for a £5 church donation he made at a Battle of Britain memorial service, the Sunday Telegraph reports. The MP for Stockton-on-Tees submitted the 2006 claim with a handwritten note, but it was later rejected by the Commons Fees Office, the paper says. Mr Cook said he did not recall the claim and described it as “a mistake”.
