Leftists Rejoice – The War On Poverty Is Won

By ATWadmin On May 27th, 2009 at 4:22 pm

THEY’LL BE CHEERING in the salons of North London this evening, for the war against poverty goes well.

The number of millionaires in Britain has halved amid the recession to less than 250,000, according to new figures ….. The research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research estimated that numbers had fallen to 242,000, down from 489,000 in 2007. It also suggested that the wealth of the average millionaire in Briton has dropped by a quarter in the past year.

It’s not just the bloated rich who are feeling the pinch.

Middle Britain is not as wealthy as initially perceived as a new survey highlights the true salaries and lifestyles of workers on average incomes ….. It questioned 1,000 workers in the median income bracket, showing that they earned £377 a week or just under £20,000 a year. It suggested that this is a “long way” from the comfortable middle-class incomes now referred to as Middle Britain.

Jolly good news eh, Comrades? ‘Income inequality’ diminishes, therefore poverty diminishes. Granted, we all become poorer in the process, but that’s by the by. Reducing ‘poverty’ is what matters, isn’t it?

Even a Blind Chipmunk

By ATWadmin On May 27th, 2009 at 2:55 pm

Even a blind chipmunk finds an acorn sometimes. And so it was with Vice President, Joe Biden. Before Obama was installed as President, Biden spoke the following prescient words: 

“Mark my words,” Biden said. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.” Expanding on his thought, Biden sought to impress his point on the audience: “Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”  (my emphasis) Quoted from Powerline.

 Does President Obama even know that he is being tested?  

“…North Korea’s Kim Jong Il has challenged President Obama more in four months than he did President Bush in eight yearsSince Obama has taken office, North Korea has kicked out UN nuclear inspectors, launched both short and long-range missiles and tested a nuclear weapon.” (my emphasis.)  Quote from: NYPOST

So where are we claiming for living this month, dear?

The difference will be everything! When voters, not so much in the June 4th Elections but on the only one which counts, the General Election, make their minds up as to whether they will support the incumbent candidate, or a new name from the same Party, or to vote for an opposing Party out of anger or protest, they have a multitude of decisions to weigh.

They will no doubt be voting with resentment if an incumbent has been ‘on the fiddle’, and maybe turn away from Party loyalty because of that anger, and possibly because they were not given a chance to see a discredited face removed from their ballot papers. The permutations are endless, and worthy of discussion from now until the Returning Officer steps forward; but I believe that many will be making their minds up based on the actions and words of the Party Leaders, words which shall indeed determine who leads this country for the next five years.

Consider Gordon Brown’s responses, statements and actions and compare them with his opposite number David Cameron.  The Labour attitude has always been grudging, and in response to the statements and actions of others. Yes, they have instituted a ‘Star chamber’ but it’s location and deliberations are secret, and known only to Party hierarchy and participants. Cameron’s actions are to tell defaulters that they must resign, and for some others go before their local Party Associations in an attempt to rescue their careers.

Any sounds from Number 10 of Gordon Brown throwing his Cabinet colleagues to the dogs are slim, and pointed towards those such as Hazel Blears, who made a coded attack on her Leader’s YouTube appearance. Not a word against Ed Balls and wife Yvette Cooper, who have made substantial cash through property speculation at the cost of the public purse; and similar silence regarding Andy Burnham’s new flat, Geoff Hoon’s housing empire, Margaret Moran’s property mini-empire, held so she can have ‘a private life’. 

Cameron, although on the forward foot since the expenses crisis surfaced, isn’t entirely free of the ‘Friends and Family’ problem either. Patrick Mcgloughlin’s expenses sheet is by no means squeaky clean, as he pays his wife £40,000 whilst they ‘live’ in London and claim as ‘second’ their constituency home. Our Dave has been firm with little Nadine, who became almost hysterical on the radio, and brutal towards Hogg, Viggers and Anthony Steen. He has been visible in his anger and his actions, and this will count highly, in my belief, when the final reckoning appears come Election Night. 

If Cameron can now come out by promising to undo some of the Labour damage, removing ‘terror’ legislation which doesn’t work, removing the ‘rights’ legislation which hampers our ability to chuck other undesirables out, removing the disgusting apparatus in Northern Ireland which allows terror godfathers and their scum cousins to sit in power, dropping the hugely expensive computer projects for the NHS and I.D. cards; he’ll gain not only the waverers, but also firm up the support lost by the end of the Major years, and solidify his power base at Westminster. I still don’t like him, but since the last thing we need is a Tory Leadership change, I suppose we’ll have to live with what we’ve got.

We are being Pushed

By ATWadmin On May 27th, 2009 at 1:54 am

If you haven’t noticed the U.S. namely the Obama Administration is being pushed. The wolves have come out of their caves and are growling at the naked emperor.

Iran has sent six warships to international waters, including the Gulf of Aden, to show its ability to confront any foreign threats, its naval commander said on Monday. The move to dispatch the warships is indicative of the country’s high military capability in confronting any foreign threat on the country’s shores, at least that is the propaganda out of INRA.

On May 20, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran had tested a missile that defence analysts say could hit Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf, a move likely to fuel concern about Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Except the Emperor sees no threat from from Persia, he is more worried about losing face from lack of ability to control Israel.

The Wolves to our south are Venezuela and Bolivia and they are supplying Iran with uranium for its nuclear program, according to a secret Israeli government report obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

The two South American countries are known to have close ties with Iran, but this is the first allegation that they are involved in the development of Iran’s nuclear program, considered a strategic threat by Israel. Which has reached the conclusion after meeting the naked emperor, that they must act and act quickly.

Add to that the big wolf is showing his teeth setting off a nuke during one of the emperor’s speeches and following it up with two rocket launches as he rolls on the floor laughing at the emperor and the UNs outrage.

We are being pushed and tested and just as no one here will tell the emperor that he is naked the wolves see his vulnerability and are starting to circle for the kill.

UPDATE: North Korea Threatens Armed Strike, End to Armistice

 

May 27 (Bloomberg) — North Korea threatened a military response to South Korean participation in a U.S.-led program to seize weapons of mass destruction, and said it will no longer abide by the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War.

“The Korean People’s Army will not be bound to the Armistice Agreement any longer,” the official Korean Central News Agency said in a statement today. Any attempt to inspect North Korean vessels will be countered with “prompt and strong military strikes.” South Korea’s military said it will “deal sternly with any provocation” from the North.

Obama, The Smart One?

By ATWadmin On May 26th, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Wasn’t President Obama billed as “The Smart One”?  

Not smart, it seems. Only last week, in a WSJ article titled, Get Ready for Another North Korean Nuke Test, John Bolton warned of North Korea’s ambitions:

The curtain is about to rise again on the long-running nuclear tragicomedy, “North Korea Outwits the United States.” Despite Kim Jong Il’s explicit threats of another nuclear test, U.S. Special Envoy Stephen Bosworth said last week that the Obama administration is “relatively relaxed” and that “there is not a sense of crisis.” 

Wake up, President Obama, before it’s too late. 

 

Only joking!

I reproduce, without comment, a picture which accompanied the report of the arrest of some seventeen British tourists while on ‘holiday’ in Crete.

 

 

Oh, alright, I will comment, but only to say it seems rather a strange holiday recreational pastime, but perhaps I am not as ‘with-it’ as some younger people!

LOCAL TROUGHERS TO GILT EDGE TROUGH!

By ATWadmin On May 26th, 2009 at 8:27 am

What could be open and transparent and ever so reasonable?

ALLOWANCES for MLAs at the Assembly are to come under the microscope. Ulster’s political representatives will be scrutinised for expenses in relation to office costs, food and travel. The move follows weeks of revelations about MPs at Westminster claiming for expenditure such as clearing moats and duck islands. As part of its consideration of the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB) report on MLAs’ salaries and allowances the Assembly Commission, which runs the legislature, has begun the review.  Assembly Speaker William Hay said: “The commission has been considering the SSRB report in recent months. “We want to ensure that the Assembly is open, transparent and demonstrates value for public money.”

Erm, would this Commission that will “scrutinise” salaries and expenses by one composed entirely of politicians? Yes. What do YOU think will be their guiding motivation? Here the policing of political expenses will be carried out by politicians and there seems little media outrage at this.  

Pigs. Noses. Trough.

SCIENCETOLOGY ON TRIAL…

By ATWadmin On May 26th, 2009 at 8:20 am

Interesting to read that the “Church of Scientology” has been accused of manipulating followers into handing over their savings, in a trial that could see the “church “ banned from France.

The church’s main centre in France, the ASES-Celebrity Centre, its bookshop and six of its leaders were charged on Monday with organised fraud and illegally prescribing drugs.

One former church member claimed she had been psychologically pressured into paying thousands of pounds for lessons, books, drugs and a device called an “electrometre”, which the church says can measure a person’s mental state but which the prosecution said was “nothing more than a lure”.

Hope the French succeed! Even Tom Cruise and John Travolta cannot cover up the fact that this cult is a danger that needs removed.  Then, after Sciencetology, time to ban Islam. Go France..

FIGHTING FOR EQUALITY….

By ATWadmin On May 26th, 2009 at 8:12 am

Great news for the Equality agenda that so many liberals are profoundly committed to imposing on us.

“A quarter of all violent assaults in England and Wales are now carried out by women. The shocking figures, police believe, can be put down to binge-drinking and the so-called ‘ladette culture’. Officers say young women are increasingly challenging their male counterparts when it comes to drunken yobbishness and booze-fuelled brawling. Violence is now the most common reason for women in England..”

This is welcome news, obviously, but still only 25% of violent assaults and yet women make up 50% of the populationso there needs to be some sort of Commission established to promote more violence amongst the fairer sex to balance this inequality.

Whatever happened to genteel Britain?

Students of Terror?

By ATWadmin On May 26th, 2009 at 8:02 am

Listened with an air of ‘I already know this’ to the BBC Today interview with Pakistani officials who were discussing the penchant for ‘mass murder’ by suicide bombers encouraged by the Taliban terrorists who have now invaded the Swat valley to the north of Islamabad. But I switched into ‘alert’ mode when the police chief who was being interviewed stated that many of the ‘suicide killers’ were actually children and young men, groomed for death and ‘paradise’ by cynical mullahs and Taliban terrorist leaders; given a target, given a large injection of adrenaline to help overcome any last-minute nerves, and given an explosive-laden truck to aim at an enemy.

Now you might think that I am just either making this up, or exaggerating to the point of lunacy, but I am also afraid that it is entirely true!

So what must we think of the fact that we have allowed, through a combination of stupidity, an unreal lack of any form of effective border control at any of the many ports of entry to Great Britain, a criminally lax immigration policy first effected by the Tories and manfully grasped and enlarged by Labour, some Twenty-Seven Thousand young men who come from the same tradition, ethos and background as the joyfull juvenile mass killers of the Suicide Clans of Pakistan and the Taliban?

Oh, and just by-the by, if the police locate and detain ANY of this scum, this Nation will not be able to deport any of them; because we might be acting against their Human Rights, and we can’t have that, can we?
