Honestly, you would need a heart of stone not to laugh at the sheer imbecility of this one.

A jihadi bride who fled Scotland for Syria to marry a terrorist has complained the country is too cold. Aqsa Mahmood, (Good SCOTTISH name)  20, has told followers on twitter the plunging temperatures are “too much” for her. The 20-year-old from Glasgow married a fighter for the brutal Islamic State in February before her parents begged her to return in a public appeal.  Uni dropout Mahmood is now living in the IS-held northern city of Raqqah where temperatures dip well below freezing at night. She wrote: “Bun [forget] Scotland, the winters here are too much. “Sisters please don’t forget to pack thermal clothing or you’ll regret it later on.”

Oh what a shocker!

Pupils at six small Muslim private schools in east London are at risk of extremist views and radicalisation, says Ofsted’s chief inspector. Sir Michael Wilshaw said the pupils’ “physical and educational welfare is at serious risk” following a series of emergency inspections. He said all the schools focused too heavily on Islamic teachings. Education Secretary Nicky Morgan says the schools will be closed down if changes are not made quickly.

It seems they some pupils (lab rats) could not distinguish between SHARIA Law and UK Law.

Look, the idea that we can have ANY confidence in the deliberate “otherness” of Islamic education in this British country is delusional. I think it would be best for community cohesion if we closed all Islamic schools. if parents want to get an Islamic education, move to an Islamic country.

Remember Obama promising a more consensual form of government? Yes, that was pure spin, of course. And now, in the declining years of his reign, we have King Obama revealed in all his naked ambition.

‘Ignoring the brutal, historic slap-down angry American voters gave his party this month, President Obama unveiled plans for a unilaterally imposed amnesty that will shield an estimated 5 million illegal aliens from deportation.

Whether Republicans, now in possession of a thunderous mandate to fight Obama tooth and nail, will fight this despotic usurpation of the lawmaking powers of Congress remains to be seen.”

So, 5 million law breakers get to stay in the US. What message does that send to others considering a quick hop across the border? I know that Bush was little better. I can’t fathom WHY the United States of America seeks to become the United States of Mexico but assuredly that is one demographic consequence of this act by his Imperial Kingliness!

Famously described by Prime Minister David Cameron as  “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists” - UKIP seem to be doing remarkably well.

They topped the poll at the European Elections.

They gained a massive number of local Council seats.

They won the CLACTON byelection.

And last night, they won the ROCHESTER AND STROOD BYELECTION.


The media mantra is that this is somehow just a “protest” vote and that come the General Election next May all will be well as the political status quo returns to normal.

I can’t wait for the crestfallen faces of the establishment commentariat when they see that the political tectonics have shifted and they are the people STILL in denial.

Up until this point, the conventional thinking was that UKIP steal from the Conservatives and that this will mean Labour can slip through and win next year.

Last night, the Labour share of the vote in Rochester went back by almost 50% as core Labour voters shifted to a Party that actually represents the working class.

Interesting times, folks, interesting times.

Only ninety-six years today…………….

………..the world truly turned upside down.

The combined Royal Navy Grand Fleet moved out of the Firth of Forth in the mists of early morning, joined up with five American battleships and three French cruisers; and set sail for a moment of destiny. Forty Battleships and Battlecruisers moved out, to be joined by over one hundred and fifty cruisers and destroyers. They met, by arrangement, the German High Seas Fleet, and with only signals from strings of bunting flags, along with signal lamps, the massive convoy of naval metal turned and, led by a single British warship, the German fleet sailed into the Firth of Forth to an ignominious surrender.

Admiral Beatty’s Fleet orders were simple yet succint;- “Turrets and guns are to be kept in the securing positions, but free. Guns are to be empty with cages up and loaded ready for ramming home. Directors and armoured towers are to be trained on. Correct range and deflection are to be kept set continuously on the sights.”


Beatty’s final signal stated “The German flag will be hauled down at sunset today and will not be hoisted again without permission.”

The seeds of the Second World War were, unfortunately, sown at the Versailles Peace Conference, where a humiliated Germany was given no chance to repair herself, to feed her starving millions; and a single patriotic Austrian corporal, who was also an unsuspected megalomaniac, commenced his deadly ruminations.

The Wrong Trousers

By Mike Cunningham On November 21st, 2014 at 2:51 pm

All the major players, the mainstream Parties, Labour, the Tories, Lib_Dims, joined now by an insurgent crew from UKIP; all are talking, denying, mainstreaming only one thing: Immigration. Fair enough, UKIP has grabbed the idea of all those Eastern Europeans, coming over here, and swamping our services. Not too many claims about benefit tourism, that is reserved for the newcomers; the Roumanians, the Bulgarians; but the rest? Hard-working and industrious Poles, welcomed even by the Irish, because they are ‘just like us’, they swell the congregations of the Catholic churches both North and south of the border. The Latvians, Estonians, Lithuanians, all were welcomed in by Labour, and although there are one hell-of-a-lot of them, they were, in general, welcomed, because they ‘INTEGRATED’. They were just like us, only a great deal more likely to go searching for work, and not too proud, or rather lazy, to take what was offered.

The political polemics have been washing around the ‘European’ migrants, and Cameron, Millipede and even Nick Clegg have all proposed limits of varying intensities on the European Ideal of the ‘free movement of people’ across borders, because those borders, at least as far as Schengen goes, do not exist any more.

But very little has been heard, except on right-wing sites and blogs such as ATW, about the true elephant in the room. Yes, I am talking about the two-odd million Muslims who have lurched across the prayer-mats, set up their loudspeakers and their bloody minarets, and brought the true Fifth Column into our very doorsteps. The Labour Party unleashed the deluge, changed the system so anyone with a ‘family connection’ gets a free pass; and we now are exporting young killers to get training in Iraq and Syria, and if they survive, they come back and are ready to unleash their hatred of our Nation on unsuspecting innocents, all in the name of their bloody ‘jihad’.

Enoch Powell had it about right, but he was warning about the Jamaicans, when he should have been warning us about those ‘men of Pakistani heritage’, as our leaders like to call them.

Cosby down?

By Mike Cunningham On November 21st, 2014 at 1:53 pm

In the past, I haven’t really formed much of an opinion about Bill Cosby, except that he tells a good story about his everyday life, as in the clip:-

YouTube Preview Image

However, in the pattern we have now come to know as ‘Historical Abuse Allegations, a more sinister story starts to emerge:

Camille Cosby smiles, uncomfortably shifting in her chair. Staring off camera, switching positions, silent. In the latest contribution to the Bill Cosby saga, we see husband and wife side by side as he addresses the very act of questioning about his numerous rape allegations in an AP interview (above). Mrs. Cosby continues to smile and looks away from the reporter several times, both she and her husband presuming that the cameras have stopped rolling. I will not read into her silence. I will not pull meaning about this woman and her thoughts and decisions other than to say that in the watching, the silence is palpable, wince-inducing and profoundly painful.

The NPR audio interview released last week showcases Cosby’s clearly pre-determined response to the softest, almost nervous questions about the rape allegations: deafening silence. Read the rest of this entry »

Bill Cosby is having a worse week than Mike Nichols

By Mahons On November 21st, 2014 at 1:45 pm

Celebrated film and Broadway Director Mike Nichols died of a heart attack this week at age 83. Accusations that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted 17 women (at last count) have been dominating the media landscape here in the USA. Guess who is having a worse week?

I always liked Cosby. I have been hoping that the accusations would prove false. Some of the accusers seem outright lunatics. Howver, the numbers are starting to numb, and not comfortably. The stories of using drugs and alcohol in pursuit of women are creating a decades long pattern of alleged behavior that are hard to dismiss. I doubt he faces criminal charges due to the lack of evidence and passage of time, but absent some convincing refutation, his legacy has been shattered.

Sometimes liberalism and mental illness are indistinguishable

AN EXCELLENT primary school  in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, cannot be rated as “outstanding” by the government inspectorate. Problems with bullying? Nope. Poor maths results? Nope.

The terrible fact is that the school is too white and too British.

Apparently there aren’t enough disabled and immigrant children in the area, blighting the 97% of children who have English as a first language, and what an odd concept our forebears would have found in that. Not having black and muslim children around is apparently blighting the poor little souls. It leaves a large gap in their “cultural development”, leaving the pathetic school open to “diversity criticism”.

Really, I’m not making this up.

Being white and British, in official government education policy, is a blight on the lives of children. Just think about that.
