The Welfare State encourages the worst human behaviour possible;
The jobless man branded ‘Britain’s most feckless dad’ for fathering 14 children has had another child – and two more are on the way. Jamie Cumming, 34, from Dundee, who lives off benefits, has had 15 children by 13 different women – and is unable to pay maintenance for any of them. Mr Cumming’s 19-year-old ex-girlfriend birth to his latest child, a son, two weeks ago. His current girlfriend, also 19, was last night due to give birth to another boy.
Now, IF these women want to be impregnated and have a child by this guy, that’s fine, it is their decision. You can question their judgement – but we cannot outlaw stupidity! One wonders what sort of moral values, if any, that they have, but with single mums now being eulogised as the very modern woman, I suppose they feel some sort of sense of achievement?
But as for jobless Mr Cumming – why is he being paid benefit of any sort when it is obvious the last thing on his mind is work? Dare I suggest that were he to see his welfare removed, he might re-prioritise his life? But when the State is so keen to subsidise his impregnating behaviour, why should he bother?

The serial incompetency of local government is vividly manifest in this little tale;
“Shopkeepers in Worcestershire fear they will lose thousands of pounds in trade due to a council bridge painting error. The county council held a six-week public consultation in August and asked people which colours they wanted the Upton-upon-Severn bridge to be painted. The chosen colour scheme was duchess blue with a gold trim, but it was mistakenly painted yellow. The council plans to repaint it but traders fear they will lose revenue due to partial bridge closures.
I wonder how was sacked? That’s right, no-one. It was a simple mistake, after all blue and yellow are so alike.

IT’S difficult to overstate the contempt which the British ruling class has for our people. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes another Abdul to show how wrong you can be. The details are no less astonishing for being straightforward. Yet another illegal immigrant falls off a banana boat, this one from Morocco though claiming to be an Afghan on the run from the Taliban. He says he’s disabled and “successfully claims for income support, disability living allowance, housing benefit, council tax benefits, special housing, payments from social services for carers and further payments from the Independent Living Fund”.
I’ve not even heard of some of those.
All in all, reports the Daily Mail, he trousered £400,000. He was also given a flat in London, adapted for disabled living, so in the end talking the thick end of a million quid. At the height of the scam he was pulling in £66,000 a year. If we need reminding, that’s a £100K salary. Well I’m not interested in him being disabled (or not, since he was caught out). He’s an alien who has no business being here yet the state cannot rob us fast enough to make him wealthy by the standards of the victims who (no doubt) will be sneered at as ‘racist’ if they protest. Well screw that.
The contempt for the British people cannot be greater. How many years will you have to work to incur the taxes which he took? It’s literally millions of hours of British sweat and labour, and the state cannot comandeer it fast enough for the benefit of a foreigner who most of us don’t want here. He’s just one example, and we only know about him because he was found out. Such is the state’s war against the British people there are many thousands more out there, on the take for our wealth against our wishes while someone’s old nan is told her hip op is cancelled because the money’s not there. Of course it’s not there, they gave it to an illegal immigrant.
According to the BBC: “Camden Council and the Department for Work and Pensions have both been contacted by BBC London but have not responded regarding the case.” I bet they haven’t responded. When even the BBC is after you, the jig’s up. The regulatory welfare state is a failed experiment. The cash is gone, revolutionary times are here. Don’t think they can’t come to a council office near you. I suspect they will be soon enough.

We’ve been flagging this up for some time on ATW. Just to be clear, I take no satisfaction from what lies in store but I would foolish if I ignored the all too obvious…
As the Italian government struggled to borrow and Spain considered seeking an international bail-out, British ministers privately warned that the break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible. Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis. The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way. A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time.
Political hubris, blind ambition, socialist folly —- it all ends in the same place. Thank God we are an island people.

Here is my one hour marathon debate on National BBC Radio last night, give it a whirl if you want to hear a difference of opinion.

I see that former Northern Ireland international Paul McVeigh says the IFA will never endear itself to young catholic footballers until it ditches God Save The Queen as its national anthem — and moves away from Windsor Park.
The west Belfast-born former Spurs and Norwich City player was capped 20 times but in a revealing interview admitted he found it difficult to have heartfelt pride in the jersey. While the debate rages over mainly nationalist Northern Ireland-born players opting to play for the Republic of Ireland, McVeigh believes the IFA has within its power the ability to instantly change the trend.
Perhaps Paul would be happier if Northern Ireland relocated its main football stadium to west Belfast and adopted the Soldier’s Song? Listen, if it offends some wannabe footballers to have pride in our National Anthem they should clear off to somewhere that suits them better. I can just imagine the response of the Irish football authorities if some UK born footballers with Irish passports suggested they drop the Irish National anthem!

Wonder what you think of this story? Not so long ago we were being told that Norway is the very model of multicultural acceptance. Except, of course, that is anything but!!
“A political row has broken out in Norway after a secondary school segregated students with ethnic backgrounds in classes away from white Norwegians.
Bjerke Upper Secondary School in Oslo filled one of the three general studies sets solely with pupils with immigrant parents, after many white Norwegians from last year’s intake changed schools. The controversy over the decision has highlighted the unease in Norway over how to integrate the 420,000 “non-Nordic” citizens who immigrated between 1990 and 2009, and who make up 28 per cent of Oslo’s population.
“This is the first time I’ve heard about this, and it is totally unacceptable,” Torge Ødegaard, Oslo education commissioner, said on Friday, before pressuring the school to inform parents that the three classes would now be reorganised. The letter to parents read: “Such a division of the students is not in accordance with the requirements of the Education Act. The school regrets this error.”
But Robert Wright, a Christian Democrat politician and former head of the city’s schools board, struck back, arguing that the authorities had been wrong to block the move. He also said that other Oslo schools should start to segregate classes to prevent a situation of “white flight” developing.”
Norway’s problem is Europe’s problem. The massive influx of Muslims presided over by a political liberal elite has caused a fundamental societal problem and I’m not sure HOW it can be fixed. With Europe seeking to open up its borders to 60m Turkish Muslims, things are going to get much worse. We need to stop this madness, carefully protect our borders, demand assimilation and integration. Anything else will lead to more division and who wants that?

One by one, Europe’s socialist dominos fall. You’ve already seen the Greek tragedy, the Italian farce, the Portuguese flop…and more is to come…
The new Spanish centre-right Government is considering an application for international aid, news agency Reuters has exclusively reported. According to the report, the People’s Party, which will be officially sworn in next month, is facing a tough 2012 public deficit target, nervous debt markets and a broken banking sector against the backdrop of the debt crisis. The funding could come from the European bailout fund or the International Monetary Fund.
It doesn’t end there, no siree!
Standard & Poor’s lowered its long-term sovereign credit rating for Belgium on Friday, citing the country’s lack of a permanent government and a looming European recession that threatens the country’s exports. In a sign that financial contagion is spreading across Europe, the agency cut Belgium’s credit rating from AA+ to AA, a moved that sent shocked politicians immediately back into new negotiations Friday night.
Spain, Belgium……who next? Could it be … France?

First, let us remember that there are more than few western liberals who think the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to be a force for progressive reform. Now let’s deal with reality, shall we?
A Muslim Brotherhood rally in Cairo’s most prominent mosque Friday turned into a venomous anti-Israel protest, with attendants vowing to “one day kill all Jews.” Some 5,000 people joined the rally, called to promote the “battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization.” The event coincided with the anniversary of the United Nations’ partition plan in 1947, which called for the establishment of a Jewish state. Speakers at the event delivered impassioned, hateful speeches against Israel, slamming the “Zionist occupiers” and the “treacherous Jews.” Upon leaving the rally, worshippers were given small flags, with Egypt’s flag on one side and the Palestinian flag on the other, as well as maps of Jerusalem’s Old City detailing where “Zionists are aiming to change Jerusalem’s Muslim character.”
What can go wrong when these guys get into power? Allahu Akhbar, baby.
