Tory drones must be wondering what happened. Yet again immigration has risen, yet again the Tories have been proven to have flat out lied when Cameron promised, in 2009, to get net immigration down to the tens of thousands – “no ifs, no buts”. My emphasis:
Net migration – the difference between those arriving and those emigrating – rose by 94,000 last year to 330,000, smashing a record set under Labour […]
Net migration in the year to the end of March eclipsed the record set when Labour opened the door to eastern European migrants in the mid-2000s.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said 636,000 migrants came to live in Britain in the 12 months to the end of March, a year-on-year rise of 84,000, while 307,000 emigrated.
They did you again, Tory drones. They did you so well that immigration is higher than it ever was under Labour, and that rabble purposely encouraged as much immigration as possible.
The news is all about the net figure of 330,000 but the gross number of 636,000 is the really significant number. Cameron and the Tories lied and continue to lie about immigration. This is plainly obvious because the UK government treasonously smashed our borders to open up the country to hundreds of millions of foreigners. They know this and so their promises are lies. Tory drones know this and so are deluding themselves.
Every word you hear a Tory say today: every excuse, every promise and every reason, they will all be lies because this is how they want it to be.
Too soon? Word has it that filming is scheduled for the great love story between Martin McGuiness and Ian Paisley. And some of you think gay marriage is intolerable. Both men were and are despised by their rival camps. Despite decades of vile words from Paisley and decades of vile acts by McGuiness they both managed to get along and that weird bond helped maitain the Peace in NI today. Life remains stranger than fiction.
Does Donald Trump have a Rosebud? Impossible to know. A team of forensic psychiatrists would be unable to figure him out. Frankly, I have always thought his father (who made him rich) must not have given him enough attention. Hence the rambling incoherence, the megalomanical attention seeking, the serial lying and the strange need to provoke. He momentarily sits at the head of a Republican Party primary season – the tragic result of the cynical dumbing down of a major political party and the adverse impact of celebrity culture on the nation. He is waging a reality show, not a campaign. It is a glitch, but a loud one.
He will not be brought down by anything he says. He has a capacity for shamelessness that a Clinton would envy. He failed running Casinos, a virtual impossibility. He denounces immigrants, yet married two. He obtained deferments when his country was at war, and denounces POWs as cowards. He consistently denounces women in terms that would embarrass Andrew Dice Clay. He has zero grasp of policy, history, or reality. If you have the time watch an entire speech. His meandering illogic and contradictory sentences make you wonder if he even knows what he might say next. He makes Ted Cruz look like he has gravitas.
He clearly just wants the attention. Why would he really want to be President, he would have to move into a smaller house. So let him have his moment of glory, a moment is all he will get. There are serious issues and they call for a serious candidate. Trump says that he is disliked because he isn’t politically correct. The truth is he is disliked because he isn’t actually correct. It is a distinction the sensible see and the feeble miss.
I’m off to Stockholm for a long weekend and will be visiting the ABBA museum once more. Here is perhaps their greatest moment for you ALL to enjoy….I still think the final note Agnetha hits is glacial perfection!
Yesterday was Elvis Costello’s 61st birthday! As long time readers here know, I have been a fan since he was a tender 23! Where do the years go? Here is a lovely song that demonstrates a tender side to him that people should pay attention to.
Back in my political days (Yikes) this individual regularly attacked me in the media, using various pseudonyms.
A disgraced aide to a DUP MP faces up to six months in jail after he was convicted of voyeurism today. Standing in the dock of Craigavon Magistrates Court with his hands clasped in front of him, 50-year-old David McConaghie showed little or no reaction as District Judge Mervyn Bates said he had no doubt he “secreted” the sophisticated spy camera in a pot pourri in the toilets of David Simpson’s constituency office for his own sexual gratification.
Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn has said he would consider women-only rail carriages to help stem a rise in assaults on public transport. Mr Corbyn told the Independent he would consult women on the suggestion.
But the idea was attacked as outdated and unhelpful by his Labour leadership rivals Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham. And other critics, including Conservative women’s minister Nicky Morgan, said it smacked of “segregation”.
Gosh, Labour would NEVER entertain gender segregation…hang on…
I am sure Labour’s Islamist base will approve. Installah.
The Ulster Unionist Party intends to leave the Northern Ireland Executive, the party’s leader has said. Mike Nesbitt made the recommendation during a meeting with senior party members. The announcement comes as part of an ongoing political row over the status of the Provisional IRA that followed the murder of Kevin McGuigan Sr. Sinn Féin accused the UUP of creating a “crisis”, while the DUP said the move was “hypocritical and misleading”.
This puts the DUP in a tough spot. Do they stick it out and stay in an Executive with the IRA’s proxies and hand the electoral advantage to the UUP, or risk it?
Now the meddling UN sends lawyer to Britain to probe benefits reforms
