Senator Norris, aspiring President of Ireland, has a few problems;

The Sunday Independent today publishes a letter which was written 14 years ago by Senator David Norris to the judges of the High Court of Israel in which he pleaded for “mercy” for his then 45-year-old former lover who had been convicted of the statutory rape of a 15-year-old male.

The letter, which was give to the Sunday Independent by Senator Norris on Friday, is written on Seanad Eireann notepaper.

In the letter, Senator Norris, then 53, stated he himself had been mentioned at the time, 1997, as a possible candidate to be President of Ireland

To the chagrin of the left, this means Ireland will not be getting it’s First openly gay President. Seeking clemency for male rapists is not the conventional route to the Presidency.

Drivers will have to state whether they want to be an organ donor when they apply for a new or replacement licence.

The move has been put forward by the government’s “nudge unit”, which has been set up to encourage changes in behaviour through gentle persuasion. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency already asks if applicants want to be donors – but from Monday an online form will require that the answer is stated.

They can nudge all they want but I will not be influenced by them.  Sooner or later the State will ask of if we want to opt out of this scheme, in which case it is by default laying claim to our bodies.

Willian Hague stated :- ”We would now be looking at a pariah state completely under the control of Col Gaddafi, destabilising an already unstable Middle East, if we had not taken the action we have taken.”

So when is he and Boy David going to act on Syria? When will he send the Tornadoes and the Typhoons against Damascus? Probably not until Cameron returns from holiday in Chiantishire, and then don’t hold your breath!

We’ll probably hear stern words of warning, along with the imposition of sanctions which will stop Assads wife from shopping in Bond Street, but little else! Mainly because we haven’t got any more bombs; we have sacked all the other jet fighter/bomber pilots, no Arabs want to join anyone against Syria, and Cameron has just seen the fuel bill for Afghanistan.

The man makes multiple points, but the sharpest is reserved for old ‘Hope and Change’ and his none-existent Plan, or Budget, or anything which could be construed as leadership!

So when I posted about the very slow mini-avalanche of elderly Gurkhas, complete with large and active families, seeping towards our green fields, using the words ‘A Mercenary is still a mercenary’ was I correct?


Some would answer that only ‘time will tell’!

So what part of the phrase  ‘Flood Plain’ didn’t you understand?



Just checked on the Dakota Dunes Website, and (I kid you not) the developers are promising not to be billing the third quarter assessments.

Now ain’t that really magnanimous????

Just back from BBC debate on Capital Punishment for Oslo killer. Usual liberal nonsense put up against me but the bit that intrigued me was the admission by the Ekklesia delegate that he was a pacifist. I suspected this from the way he wilfully interchanged murder and killing, a tell tale sign of uberliberalism. Killing and Murder are NOT the same thing as any dimwit knows. He used the trope about the State “murdering” when it executes those convicted of murder. It doesn’t murder them – it lawfully kills them. Big difference. He believes all killing is wrong. So, had we listened to his ilk in 1939 we would now all be speaking German. If your daughter is being raped, should she turn the other cheek? Of course not. The Bible is crystal clear – those who purposefully set out to take life should forfeit their lives. We have a perfect right to defend ourselves.

If you’re American, I was “on the trail” today. If you’re British or Irish, I “went for a walk”.  And what a walk too, through some of God’s creation that’s Epping Forest.

It’s a place I’ve neglected for some years although I’ve been putting that right recently. It’s good to see Mother Nature hasn’t also neglected these glorious woods. They’re as thick, dark and lush as I remember. You see, dear reader, your humble correspondent pretty much grew up in this place. When I were a nipper I’d usually be fishing the lakes or tearing around on my BMX. Little did I realise I was gaining an education every bit as valuable as anything taught in a classroom. It’s here that I learned how to use a map and compass, site a camp, erect a shelter, make a feather stick and build a fire, use a bushcraft knife, set a snare, identify wild food, camouflage techniques, tracking and all those other ancient and wonderful things boys should know. I still remember it all and the great times we had in learning them. Most of what a teacher ever said to me has long gone.

But … no, I’m sure social engineers are right. Learning how to score drugs and get pregnant must be more “socially relevant” or something. Strewth, half of what we got up to in Epping Forest is probably illegal now.

Even so, if you have children then opening the door and dragging the little darlings out probably won’t do them any harm. That’s eight miles, a million trees, a secret valley rediscovered, some muntjac spotted, a few rabbits, a pair of tired legs – and a few beers coming up.

Will be on BBC NI’s  Sunday Sequence tomorrow morning – around 9.30am or so, discussing the issue of Capital Punishment post Oslo. I don’t believe that ANY law could have prevented the atrocity carried out by moonbat Brievik and like all decent people my primary thoughts remain with the families of those who lost loved ones. However I do believe the following;

1. Human life is sacred and God has made clear that those who set out to take life forfeit their own.

2. I believe the Death Penalty is primarily about Justice and it is extremely effective. No convicted murderers having had it inflicted on them have killed again.

3. Breivik will get around 100 days in prison for each life he extinguished. In prison, he will enjoy free food, free gym activities, free education….this is punishment? Ah no – liberals do not believe that prison should be about such a thing. I do.

4. The UK abolished the death penalty in 1965. Since then the murder rate has doubled. QED?

5. In a representative democracy, why do our delegates not represent us? Most people in the UK would be content to see the return of the Death Penalty so WHY deny them this?

6. If society sends the signal that no matter how evil you are, no matter how many people you kill, you will not lose your life…can it be surprised that killing becomes more casual?

7. Life in prison has been reduced to the point where as in Norway, it means 14 years. This is plain wrong. But even if life did mean life, it means the guilty survive whilst the innocent are lost.

I like this quote;

“If we execute murderers and there is in fact no deterrent effect, we have killed a bunch of murderers. If we fail to execute murderers, and doing so would in fact have deterred other murders, we have allowed the killing of a bunch of innocent victims. I would much rather risk the former. This, to me, is not a tough call.”
