The Alpha Monacle

By ATWadmin On May 8th, 2007 at 9:49 am

I never thought Sir Patrick Moore was quite the full ticket.  To walk around the streets with a bottom of a jam jar stuck to your eye, gazing with almost excitable anticipation at stars millions of light years away is bizarre to say the least.  Whilst most of his fellow countrymen look heavenwards and think ‘oh no, it’s going to piss down again tomorrow’, Sir Patrick spins a diatribe on the ‘whys’ and ‘wherefores’ of our ‘infinite universe’ (how does he know it’s infinite.  Has he travelled its full length?).

Now he has confirmed his place as our pre-eminent loon by blaming women for the demise of televisual quality.  First of all he decries the BBC news because it has its fair share of women presenters.  So what?  There are some fantastic and highly professional female newsreaders on several channels.  If Sir Patrick wants to single out the BBC in particular, perhaps he’d like to comment on its news staff being dominated by the Asian mafia.

After his criticism of the news comes the bemoaning of increased numbers of women in general drama.  Maybe he’d like to go back to the days when Ena Sharples, Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst sat in the ‘snug’ at the Rovers Return, gabbling away like a triumvirate of subnormals?  I think women help to save the British television industry, not destroy it.  Give me the likes of Victoria Wood, Jo Brand, Julie Walters and Caroline Quentin over figures such as Arthur Askey, Freddie ‘Parrot Face’ Davies, Jim Bowen and – the ultimate in TV turn-offs – Peter Kay every time.

Here’s to the women!!

farfurart_0.jpgHey – don’t you know that Micky Mouse is sooooo passe? Those awfully clever people at Hamas Television are now using a clone of Disney’s Mickey Mouse to teach children to…. hate Israel and America, and aspire to what is claimed as Islam’s inevitable and impending world domination.

The squeaky-voiced Mickey Mouse lookalike, named Farfur, is the star of a weekly children’s program called Tomorrow’s Pioneers on the official Hamas TV station (Al-Aqsa TV). Farfur and his co-host, a young girl named Saraa’, teach children about such things as the importance of the daily prayers and drinking milk, while taking every opportunity to indoctrinate young viewers with teachings of Islamic supremacy, hatred of Israel and the US and support of "resistance" — the Palestinian euphemism for terror. Farfur tells children that they must pray in the mosque five times a day until there is "world leadership under Islamic leadership." I assume Farfur will seek Loony Tunes endorsement?

male female.jpgThe lethal control freakery that lies behind at least some within the environmental movement is manifest in the suggestion that having large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags

The paper by the Optimum Population Trust will say that if couples had two children instead of three they could cut their family’s carbon dioxide output by the equivalent of 620 return flights a year between London and New York. John Guillebaud, co-chairman of OPT and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, said: “The effect on the planet of having one child less is an order of magnitude greater than all these other things we might do, such as switching off lights.

“The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child.”

No, the greatest thing anyone in Britain could do is to ignore the eco-wacko warblings of Emeritus Professors from University College London! 

P.S Do you think the learned Professor might visit a few mosques and suggest it’s time that they cut back on the soaring Islamic birth-rate?

An historic day

By ATWadmin On May 8th, 2007 at 8:19 am

Today truly is historic.
loughgalltshirt.jpeOn the evening of the 8th May 1987 eight IRA men drove towards the RUC barracks in Loughgall. They carried a 200lb bomb loaded into a JCB digger.

Unknown to the IRA gag they were being watched. After the bomb was detonated, an SAS squad opened up on the terrorists firing thousands of rounds and leaving seven of the terrorists dead. Another was seriously wounded.

Sinn Fein/IRA have produced a t-shirt to commemorate the event and have expressed the hope that “young people who don’t remember the 8th May 1987 … will appreciate the heroism and single-mindedness of these men, and many more men and women like them, who made the ultimate sacrifice and who gave up years of their lives in jails around the world, in the fight for Ireland’s freedom.”

So Doc, when you sit down with your steaming mug of tea tonight (after walking over some 3,000 dead bodies) will you be wearing a one?

PS I have turned off the comments. I am not prepared to allow my posts to become a platform from which people can make dirty jokes and other crude remarks. As I cannot be in front of a PC 24 hours a day, seven days a week I feel that this is the only solution.

Here’s a glimpse into the brave new Northern Ireland.

The devastated family of a father who was beaten to death in front of his children are awaiting the results of a post- mortem before finding out when his body will be released. The gang beat 42-year-old Jim McFadden with sticks and bats in front of his children, aged between 10 and 16, as they arrived at their home in Moyola Drive in the Shantallow area of Londonderry at about 3am on Saturday. Mr McFadden, a father of four, was returning from his sister- in-law’s wedding – where his wife, Ita, had been a bridesmaid – in the early hours of Saturday morning when he was set upon. His 15-year-old daughter suffered facial injuries and his son sustained a broken arm. Mr McFadden was taken to Altnagelvin Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

And not a balaclava in sight…..

claudybomb203.jpgToday, Tuesday 8th May, will be heralded around the world as a brave new dawn for Northern Ireland. You can rely on an open-mouthed but empty-headed MSM to paint you a glowing picture of the consequences of the Democratic Unionist Party agreeing to share power with IRA/Sinn Fein in a bright new Assembly.

Tony Blair will be there, just two days before he announces he will step down as UK PM, basking in the glory of the new peace As will be Irish PM Bertie Ahern. And US Senator Ted Kennedy will add his weight to the new dispensation. There are also rumours that Bill Clinton might attend so female MLA’s may want to tread rather carefully. So at this moment in history I am reminded of the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes who observed..  

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." 

And lies, dear reader, are what today is all about.

The BIG LIE being assiduously sold today is that power-sharing with terrorists is a just and equitable basis on which to build a better future for Northern Ireland. The world is being asked to accept that it is desirable for the people of Northern Ireland to be governed by the political proxies of those who have bombed, butchered, maimed and terrorised them for over thirty five years. The UK and Irish political establishment have worked long and hard to bring about the day when a dominant Unionist Party would betray its every virtue and accept that the godfathers of terror have a perfect right to govern. Today is that day, and the DUP led by Dr Ian Paisley is the party which has finally bowed the knee to this depravity.

Compromise is a much abused word. Those who cheer-lead for what is happening today will claim that the compromise of the DUP, whilst overdue, is welcome. They will applaud Dr Paisley and his colleagues, and there will be be sagacious nods that this new compromise with IRA/Sinn Fein shows vision, true leadership. But Winston Churchill nailed that political evasion years ago when he asked "Where is the point of compromise between the fireman and the arsonist?"  There can, of course, be no compromise between democracy and terrorism, and yet that is exactly what is on display today. Just don’t expect the MSM to tell it that way.  

In the first instance, democracy is the loser. No amount of spin can disguise the fact that the new Stormont Assembly contains a Deputy First Minister who is a self-declared terrorist. Martin McGuinness now joint-occupies the highest office in the land and yet he is a man proud of his life-long membership of western Europe’s most vicious gang of killers – the IRA. During his years as an IRA commander in Londonderry, dozens of innocents were killed by the IRA. Today, as the political class celebrate with beaming smiles and backslaps, will anyone remember the victims of the organisation to which McGuinness pledged such loyalty? Are they to be forgotten, their memory sacrificed by a society which rewards the organisation? 

In truth, today we hail the victory of the bloody terrorist, we witness a democratic chamber filled with those who have operated outside the law and who have shown the utmost disregard for the sanctity of human life. Equally repellent, those who are fully aware of this now choose to set aside this knowledge, and shake their blood-stained hands. A greater betrayal of simple decency one cannot imagine.

From a Unionist perspective, this is also a very bad day. The new government of Northern Ireland now contains those committed to the destruction of the political entity of Northern Ireland. There are new Ministers within the Assembly who are plainly dedicated to removing Northern Ireland from the UK.  The pollution of the body politic is complete and Unionism reveals itself as a participant in its own destruction. Whatever the financial largesse that accrues to the 108 politicians at Stormont, their moral bankruptcy is now complete.

Those of us who refuse to surrender to the will of the terrorist are painted as "rejectionists", as "yesterday’s men" and even as the "enemies of peace." But the entire Northern Ireland "peace process" has been constructed on base deceits and as Wendell Holmes pointed out we must be alert to the lies that some try to establish within us.  It is my view that despite all the bluster you will hear today, and despite the contrived images you will see,

The prophet Jeremiah called it right when he spoke of "…an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but are not valiant for the truth upon the earth."

The peace on display today is false.

It has been purchased by a craven UK Government brow-beating a cowardly DUP into sharing power with an organisation behind vile atrocities such as La Mon and Claudy. So today, whilst the world celebrates power-sharing with terrorists in Northern Ireland, I hope you may prefer to join with me and pause to remember their victims. The blood of thousands of these innocents cries out for justice but today those in high places are not listening. Perhaps they never will.

Did you see that Government has said that all-white schools should twin with those dominated by ethnic minorities to promote good race relations? Lessons in all subjects should help teach children to be tolerant and value people from different backgrounds, according to draft government guidance to be published tomorrow. Schools minister Jim Knight said youngsters growing up in some parts of "middle England" have never met a Muslim or a Hindu and needed more contact with pupils from different backgrounds.  The fact that 92% of Brits are White does not appear to have any significance to Mr Knight. And that’s because our schools are being turned into labs in which the left can indoctrinate our children!

Pray for Little Madeleine

By ATWadmin On May 8th, 2007 at 6:40 am

I’m not a parent.  You don’t have to be to appreciate the agony and anguish the parents of little Madeleine McCann must be going through at this moment in time.  You set off on a family holiday and look forward to weeks of rest and relaxation.  Suddenly your whole world is shattered by the unmitigated evil of a person who snatches what is, for all parents, their most treasured possession. 

There is a precedent for this. Sheffield toddler Ben Needham was snatched on the island of Kos back in 1991.  He has never been seen since.  Contrary to the popular (and mostly accurate) image of southern Europe being crazy about children, there is also a lucrative child trafficking market that particularly targets children with blonde hair.  Let us hope and pray this dear little girl has not become one of their targets.  On a day when the plight of Madeleine dominates the news here in the UK, I think we should all offer our prayers for her safe return.

british_passport.jpgCan’t say that I can agree with the idea that 500,000 illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in Britain under an "earned amnesty"  The call was made at a rally in London attended by Labour MPs, church leaders and trade union bosses, aka the usual suspects. They believe anyone who has been living here illegally for four years – such as failed asylum seekers and visa overstayers – should be given a two-year work permit. That’s the sort of silly thing that appeals to liberals. I’m afraid these 500,000 law-breakers should be deported, plain and simple. It’s time we defended our borders and sent a message to the world. Allowing half a million illegals to stay will certainly send a message, but clearly the wrong one.
