THE STRANGE CASE OF SHALID MALIK..

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 9:56 am

Consider the background;

Shahid Malik admits charging taxpayer for two houses

Shahid Malik became the first Muslim to hold high office in a British Government. He became Justice Minister in 2008 before having to resign in ignonomy in May 2009 over his expenses claims which were deemed to have abused the British taxpayer. In June 2009 he was cleared of breaching the rules and was returned as Communities Minister. Now it appears that he was less than forthcoming in the information he provided to the inquiry into his behaviour…

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that Mr Malik, the new Communities Minister, did not tell Gordon Brown’s investigator of ministerial standards that he was using Commons allowances to pay rent for “office space” on the ground floor of his home in his Dewsbury constituency. This was in addition to his separate, main constituency office. He failed to disclose the existence of the second office to Sir Philip Mawer, the Prime Minister’s adviser on the ministerial code. As a result of Sir Philip’s inquiry, Mr Malik has been exonerated over his rental dealings and reappointed to the Government. Sir Philip faces calls to reopen the inquiry into Mr Malik’s affairs.

Here’s the important bit…

The second office arrangement meant that Mr Malik was claiming public money for “office space” on the ground floor of his Dewsbury home, as well as for his designated “second” home in London. Mr Malik may face a Parliamentary inquiry into why he used his MP’s expenses to pay rent for office space in his house, something forbidden by Commons rules.

Who’s been a naughty boy then? Whatever happened to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Remember, he WAS the Justice Minister – a triumph for the morally bankrupt Brown government…

EMPTY WORDS…..

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 9:38 am

It should be obvious to all but the most dyed-in-the-wool DUP sheeple that their great guru and spiritual guide, Ian Paisley Snr, is a man who specialises in hollow boasts and empty words.

TUV Leader Jim Allister has pointed this out in response to Paisley’s bellicose threat that if Allister dares to stand against him in the next General Election, he will get a “good hiding”. Even more arrogantly, and I would suggest blasphemousl, Paisley waffles ““He stole the (European) seat from me, Jim Allister had not political breath except for what he took from me.” No Ian – all Jim did was retain the principles you once promised and left you with nothing but hot air.

As I said yesterday, there will be a battle royal in North Antrim once McDoom calls the General Election and the world will marvel at the fall of the House of Paisley – a house built on deceit and hollow boasts. The DUP wrote the TUV off in Dromore – and were shocked at the result. They wrote them off in the European election – and were shocked at the result. I believe the biggest shock awaits them and it is going to be in less than 12 months time. Too many unionists reject the Assembl model as currentl constituted for it to work. It needs to be re-configured to work without terrorists in power. Simple as that..

THE SPREAD OF CONTROL….

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 9:32 am

Yes, of course his officials deny that they have a policy but the truth is that Obama now wants to determine pay levels in the wealth-creating part of the US economy.

This is what we saw back in the 1970’s in Britain when socialism wrought havoc and it looks like The One wants to now grab power right across the private sector. I presume the acquisition of GM has given him a taste for it. Of course it is NO business of government how much a private company decides to pay those who it employs. That’s a fundamental aspect to a free market but freedom is deemed a tad too expensive by Obama since it also means he can’t control – and it should be clear by now to all but the most slow-witted that Obama is ALL about control.

BRITAIN AND THE EURO….

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 9:12 am

I see that our acting Prime Minister, Lord Mandelson, has declared that the UK should enter the Euro and junk our thousand year old currency and that this remains Government policy. Now we know that Mandy is a foaming at the mouth Europhile – and given the £1m pay off he got last Autumn when he stepped down from his post as Commissioner why would he not love it – but I think that his comments show the disdain, indeed the arrogance that he and his ilk have towards the wishes of the British people who show no interest in the Euro and every desire to keep the Pound.

The newly promoted First Secretary of State, speaking in Berlin, hailed the euro as a saviour that had brought stability to the European Union during financial turmoil. “It is perfectly clear that the euro has been a great success in anchoring its eurozone members during this financial crisis,” he said.

Tell that to the Irish, Mandy, a people whose economy is being crucified by the inflexibility of the Euro. Some saviour.

Asked if the British Government would consider joining the euro, Lord Mandelson replied: “Does it remain an important objective for Britain to find itself in the same currency as that single market in which it interacts? Obviously yes.” He added: “That has to be a decision taken on the right terms in the right circumstances and conditions and therefore at a future time than we have now.”

Well, he WOULD say that, wouldn’t he? The reality is that Britain will not enter the Euro-currency and the conditions that Mandy posits will not exist. He is obviously hoping that a future incoming Labour government – say in 2014, could strike and force us into the bondage of Euro captivity. Once Labour are swept from power we must not let them back – the damage they cause is just too great.

REMOVING THE CROSS

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 8:47 am

What do you make of the news that a Labour minister has sparked controversy by claiming that an alternative symbol is needed for the Red Cross because of the logo’s supposed links to the Crusades?

Foreign Office minister Chris Bryant said that the historic emblem risked undermining the work of the humanitarian organisation. His intervention came as MPs debated the adoption of the ‘red crystal’ – a diamond-shaped badge – to avoid the religious connotations of the cross and crescent symbols currently used by the international body.

How about having just a red blob as an an alternative to all three? Sadly the Red Cross has become a left wing shill, heavily politicised. But even that is enough – it now needs to lose the Cross lest it offend you know who…..

freedom of information?

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2009 at 8:07 am

Some while back, I wrote my M.P. on the subject of the regulation of safety in our Nuclear Power stations; and enquiring how the systems were tested, the frequency of such inspections, the assessment of risk, and so on. This was after a leak had gone undetected for over nine months at Sellafield, and no-one was punished, no-one was fired, couple of blokes actually got promoted!

Some two months later, I received an anodyne reply from a Minister, via my M.P., to the effect that the INDUSTRY virtually regulates itself, as the Inspectorate relys on the various power stations to abide by the rules, check and tick all the boxes on the check sheets, whilst not actually carrying out any invasive or testing which might shut the sytem down.

So what are we supposed to make of this report of some 15,000 gallons of radioactive water leaking out of a fifteen foot-long crack in a pipe which drained a pool containing highly-radaiated spent fuel rods. If the pool had drained, the rods could possibly have dried, lost the cooling effect of the water and burst into a huge fire. The leak was noticed not by highly-skilled Inspectors on routine assignment, but by a LAUNDRY worker sorting dirty linen in an adjoining room.

 

NO-ONE was prosecuted this time either!

BYRNE(T) EARTH POLICY!

By ATWadmin On June 11th, 2009 at 6:59 pm

Seems that our politicians are queuing up to let us know that after the next election – when they are safely enconced in power – taxes will be going UP!

Labour may increase taxes again if it wins the next election, Treasury minister Liam Byrne signalled today. The new Chief Secretary to the Treasury stressed that difficult decisions would need to be made on taxes and spending to get the public finances back in order. “Alistair Darling has been really clear that there are going to be some pretty tough choices to be made,” he said. “There are going to be conditions of constraint and there are going to be difficult decisions on, for example, tax.”

How is this news? Labour has spent the past 12 years putting taxes up in all sorts of ways. Of course Labour has set in motion massive tax increases to fund the “stimulus” and these kick in circa 2011. So I suppose he is merely covering the corners…just in case!

FATHER AND SON…

By ATWadmin On June 11th, 2009 at 6:56 pm

Wonder what you make of the news that the body of a Palestinian boy was found hanging in a barn after his relatives confessed to killing him over possible links to Israel. Palestinian police spokesman Adnan Damiri says the 15-year-old boy’s father, uncle and cousin confessed to the slaying over suspicions the teenager had collaborated with the Israeli army. Oh the shame of it – sorry son, but this is for your own good, right? Give this people a STATE?

Sir Rush of Limbaugh, Radio Genius

By ATWadmin On June 11th, 2009 at 6:38 pm

Rush Limbaugh, or “Fatty Fat Fat Stupid Druggy Fat Fat,” as Frank J. Fleming at Pajamas Media likes to call him, is a highly entertaining Conservative policy guru; with 14.25 million listeners, Limbaugh has the most listened to radio show in the United States.

Earlier this year, the newly minted POTUS, Barack Obama, was anxious to railroad his ill-conceived “stimulus” package through the legislature. President Obama invited Republican leaders to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package and warned them as follows: “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.”

Hearing this, Rush responded: “I think Obama wants me to fail…”

If you’ve never had the opportunity to enjoy the genius of Rush, here he is below discussing the economy.

 

THE UK FIGHTS BACK!

By ATWadmin On June 11th, 2009 at 3:08 pm

Another day and yet MORE glorious news on the restoration of the UK economy under the wise leadership of the Dear Leader. Yesterday the BBC reported  the recession was over and now today the Pound has bounced back against the Euro. Isn’t it great that we have a totally impartial media and how very fortunate that ALL these good news stories concerning the economy have started to flow the week after puppet Gordon was installed by Lord Rio. Peter must be so happy at this fortuitous coincidence?
