AGW: Global Scam Comes to Ignoble End

By ATWadmin On February 25th, 2009 at 6:31 pm

On Tuesday, a NASA satellite designed to measure carbon emissions failed to orbit and crashed into the ocean.

Who among you now dare say that there is no God?

Ivan Cameron, RIP

David Cameron and Ivan in May 2004

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On behalf of all at ATW, may I offer sincere condolences to David Cameron upon the death of his son, Ivan.

It is a great shame that such a young life has been so tragically cut short, and I dearly hope that Mr. Cameron will be allowed to grieve in suitable privacy by the media and his political opponents. No parent deserves anything less upon the death of a child.

Who Stopped Clapping First?

By ATWadmin On February 25th, 2009 at 1:13 pm

I SEE in his address to the Central Committee (no, me neither) Obama announced –

the “nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.”

All the usual claptrap and nonsense of course, except, what is he talking about?

by the guidelines?

The sentencing guidelines for Dangerous Driving include the following:-

  1. No aggravating circumstances. Immediate custodial sentence will generally be necessary unless there are exceptional circumstances
    • Starting point: 12 months – 2 years for adult offenders, even where a guilty plea, although such a plea should justify the appropriate reduction in length.
  2. Intermediate culpability – momentary dangerous driving/error of judgement/ short period of bad driving. Starting point: 2 – four and a half years.
  3. Higher culpability -standard of offender’s driving is more highly dangerous (one or two aggravating factors). Starting point: four and a half to seven years.
  4. Most serious culpability. Starting point: 7 – 14 years.

Mitigating factors include:

  1. a good driving record;
  2. the absence of previous convictions;
  3. a timely plea of guilty;
  4. genuine shock or remorse (which may be greater if the victim is either a close relation or a friend);
  5. the offender’s age (but only in cases where lack of driving experience has contributed to the commission of the offence), and
  6. the fact that the offender has also been seriously injured as a result of the accident caused by the dangerous driving.
  7. the fact that the offender behaved responsibly, and took positive action to assist at the scene.

Aggravating factors include:-

  1. the consumption of drugs (including legal medication known to cause drowsiness) or of alcohol, ranging from a couple of drinks to a ‘motorised pub crawl’
  2. greatly excessive speed; racing; competitive driving against another vehicle; ‘showing off’
  3. disregard of warnings from fellow passengers
  4. a prolonged, persistent and deliberate course of very bad driving
  5. aggressive driving (such as driving much too close to the vehicle in front, persistent inappropriate attempts to overtake, or cutting in after overtaking)
  6. driving while the driver’s attention is avoidably distracted, for example by reading or by use of a mobile phone (especially if hand-held)
  7. driving when knowingly suffering from a medical condition that significantly impairs the offender’s driving skills
  8. driving when knowingly deprived of adequate sleep or rest
  9. driving a poorly maintained or dangerously loaded vehicle, especially where this has been motivated by commercial concerns

So studying all these items as the judge must have done, do you think that Lord Ahmed, the killer of Mr. Martyn Gombar, received a just sentence of Twelve Weeks prison time for his actions?

 

two shakes and it’s all over…

The anti-terror police got a real scare when a noxious brown substance was thrown through a car window by presumably a noxious substance abuser. The road was sealed off, fire appliances were rushed to the scene, as were ambulances and armed police units. One female police officer was found to have come in contact with the brown substance and was rushed to hospital together with other officers. When toxicologists examined the car seats, they found that the terrible substance was in fact not anthrax, not bio-war weaponry, not even a binary gas attack, but instead the choice of millions!

 


SCUMBAG MILLIONAIRE

By ATWadmin On February 25th, 2009 at 8:02 am

Looks like Britain’s favourite resident Jihadist, Binyam Mohamed, is on his way to becoming a millionaire!

 

Taxpayers will foot an estimated £250,000 bill for the return to Britain of an Ethiopian held at Guantanamo Bay. Security and surveillance costs covering Binyam Mohamed’s life in Britain will add an estimated £150,000 to the £100,000 paid to hire a plane for him. The 30-year-old was released from the U.S. detention camp on Monday, vowing to expose British ‘complicity’ in his alleged torture in the seven years since he was arrested in Pakistan.

Now he can look forward to massive legal compensation, with human rights lawyers making damned sure we all pay for Binyam’s pain. We treat Jihadists better than we treat our own soldiers. Sickening.

 

IRISH DOOMSDAY?

By ATWadmin On February 25th, 2009 at 7:58 am

The deepening crisis in the Irish Republic is manifest in the news that thousands of workers in the Republic are set to ballot for a national one-day strike in protest at employers — including the Irish government — which have refused to pay the national wage agreement.

The strike on March 30 could bring the entire public sector in the south to a halt and would also affect private sector employers who can afford to, but have refused, to pay the wage agreement. Unions announced yesterday that balloting will begin on Monday unless the government |returns to negotiations on a three-year agreement. The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) said the agreement would be based on its 10-point plan for economic recovery and include a reworking of the national pay deal and public sector pension levy. The unions’ umbrella body demanded commitments on its proposals, including measures to protect mortgage holders and the creation of a third tax band of 48% for the higher paid. Without agreement, ICTU general secretary David Begg warned that balloting on the national work stoppage will begin and predicted “a Doomsday situation”.

The clock is ticking- what will the Irish Government do? It seems to me that a huge confrontation is coming the way of the Brian Cownen-led government and it increasingly is running out of ideas.

WEST MIDLAND TALIBAN ON TOUR…

By ATWadmin On February 25th, 2009 at 7:52 am

Interesting to read that British soldiers are engaged in “a surreal mini civil war” with growing numbers of home-grown jihadists who have travelled to Afghanistan to support the Taliban, senior Army officers have said.

Interceptions of Taliban communications have shown that British jihadists – some “speaking with West Midlands accents” – are active in Helmand and other parts of southern Afghanistan, according to briefing papers prepared by an official security agency. The document states that the numbers of young British Muslims, “seemingly committed jihadists”, travelling abroad to commit extremist violence has been rising, with Pakistan and Somalia the most frequent destinations.

Isn’t it shocking that Britain is allowing home-trained Jihadi to travel abroad to try and kill British soldiers? Should we not be tracing back where these vermin come from, who trained them, and what did their families know of their Jihad adventures? It seems the one of the few things that Britain can export these days is Jihad.

DOWNING HOPE!

Looks like women need to stop drinking red wine!

“Women who drink even one small glass of wine a day are increasing their risk of developing certain forms of cancer by six per cent, Oxford University researchers found. This means that around 7,000 cases of cancer in women in the UK are caused by them drinking just one alcoholic drink a day, the study revealed. Around 5,000 of these cases are related to breast cancer but others are cancers of the rectum, liver, mouth and throat. For women who drink one drink, calculated as a small 125ml glass of wine, the risk of cancer increased by six per cent by the time they reached 75 years of age.”

I don’t believe a word of this. Naturally all the health nazis jump on the bandwagon – telling women that they need to stay away from el vino collapso. I recall other “research” indicating that drinking red wine was good for you, now it’s going to kill you. It’s enough to drive you to drink! I’d sooner call time on the sensationalist health nazis.

A Splendid Tribute

By ATWadmin On February 24th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

I ALWAYS LIKED The Queen Mother. She had great spirit, a joy of life (mostly fuelled by gin), for animals too and you always thought she was on our side. A great old dear all round.

The Queen unveiled today a statue in tribute to her close to the statue of George VI, her husband, on The Mall. Standing in her garter robes, she’s flanked by two bronze reliefs which depict her during the Second World War.

The Royal Family defied Foreign Office advice and remained in London during the Nazi German Blitz. The centrepiece depicts the Queen holding her hand out to a child as she and the king meet families made homeless by bombing raids. Even the bombing of Buckingham Palace did not dissuade her from staying in the capital. She famously said at the time: “I’m glad we’ve been bombed. It makes me feel I can look the East End in the face.”

A magnificent tribute from Philip Jackson, I’m sure you agree. I’ll nip into town this Saturday morning and look her up myself.
