Green Street

By ATWadmin On January 20th, 2007 at 10:19 am

David has beaten me to it.  Dimwit Ahern, the Minister of FOREIGN Affairs of the FOREIGN Republic of Ireland, has called for an all-Ireland football team.  Now that Northern Ireland is ranked higher in the FIFA stakes than its neighbour I suppose Dimwit wants to utilise the success of a superior team.  He has said football on the island should emulate rugby and organise on a cross-border basis.  Let’s look at the situation with rugby in the round.

When rugby is played in Dublin the Irish Tricolour is flown and the Soldier’s Song is played.  This is irrespective of that fact that what Northern support there is for this team is overwhelmingly based purely of geography, not on constitutional affinity.  Thus, it is a grave insult for the British people who venture to Dublin to listen to an anthem and sit beneath a flag whose connotations they find grossly offensive.  When Irish rugby is played in Belfast there is no flying of the Union Flag, nor is God Save the Queen played before the commencement of the game.

Nevertheless, I’m going to call Dimwit’s bluff (no I haven’t forsaken my Unionism).  Let’s have an all-Ireland football squad on as number of non-negotiable conditions:

  1. That all football matches are held in Belfast. 
  2. That only ‘God Save the Queen’ is played before matches.
  3. That only the Union Flag is flown at Windsor Park.

This would provide the necessary balance for the indignity that Northern fans of the rugby team face when they are in Dublin.  A sort of ‘Ireland of Equals’ is you like.  I wonder whether that sort of unity is what Dimwit and other adherents of his foul constitutional aspiration have in mind?

PRUDENCE VANISHES…..

By ATWadmin On January 20th, 2007 at 10:08 am

Of all the cons pulled by NuLabour and its simpering allies in the MSM over the past decade, the idea that Chancellor Gordon Brown has been "Prudence incarnate" is surely one of the greatest.

Under the stewardship of Brown, public debt has risen from £352 billion to a record £504 billion. And during the first nine months of the financial year, the gap between state spending and tax receipts swelled to £39.7 billion, the highest since monthly records began in 1993, even though the tax take is soaring. We are being taxed to the gills and YET State Spending is roaring ahead. That is why some economists are suggesting that income tax may have to rise by an astronomical 5p in the £. But they’re wrong. Labour have learned that increases on Income Tax are politically damaging so far better to find new and more ingenous ways to STEAL our money.."Green Taxes" anyone??? 

It is obvious that Gordon Brown’s much vaunted "economic miracle" is coming apart at the seams. Earlier in the week, Government figures showed inflation rose by the most for 15 years in December, squeezing family finances and adding to pressure for higher interest rates.

THAT is why Brown swans off to India, and talks about EVERYTHING and ANYTHING other than the economic  crisis HE has wrought back home. It is also why Brown desperately seeks to parachute out of the Exchequer and into No 10 Downing Street so he can have another patsy in place when the economic balloon bursts and we all get drenched.

Any credit for keeping the UK economy in check belongs to the Bank of England – but even they cannot offset the sheer recklessness of Brown’s massive overspend in the public sector, his sustained tax attack on the Middle Income families of this country, and his pretensions over foreign aid. We’re all paying for Brown’s folly, and the bad news is that there is much worse to come. Vote Labour and you end up paying for it.

REVERSE RACISM….

By ATWadmin On January 20th, 2007 at 9:53 am

goody_pa_203.jpgAnd so, Jade Goody, that wretched chav with a big mouth and little intelligence, is voted OUT of Big Brother. Comprehensively. (82% chose to boot her out, apparently)

I caught her being interviewed afterwards (My duty to my readers!) and conclude she is just very very ignorant. She is also a bully, but not so daft as to realise her commercial star may be about to be eclipsed, so she made a series of bizarre comments basically claiming that she wouldn’t say the things that she..erm…said! Hilarious. 

But still the row goes on. And still the MSM pick on Goody and her coven for their alleged racism, and ignore Jermaine Jackson’s "White trash" remark. It does strike me that the media only like to focus on SOME forms of racism. When a White person makes an offensive remark about a coloured person, that is racism. When a coloured person makes an offensive remark about a white person, that is ignored. Guilty little liberals like to be selective, you see.

Meanwhile, when Channel 4 programme broadcast another programme in which homosexuals are castigated, Jews and Christians are compared to dogs, Wife beating and child marriage is encouraged, NOT A CHEEP out of the MSM!!!! Ah – but then it was ISLAMISTS making those racist remarks – and there appears to be different set of rules for the ROP. And they bite.

Jade Goody should never have made it into the headlines. Militant Islam should. Why do you think the MSM selected one minor story and ignored the bigger one? Mmmmm…

BRITISH ISLES FC….

By ATWadmin On January 20th, 2007 at 9:36 am

I’d like to propose that the Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland merge their football teams to create a BRITISH ISLES team. I do this in the same caring spirit that Irish Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern has called for a United Irish football team. After all, the footballing talent across the islands is greater than any individual part, and it would ensure that Irish players have some sort of chance of getting to the next World Cup. What do you think? Time for Mr Ahern to think more broadly, time to move on from petty nationalist dreaming…

GIULIANA FOR 2008!

By ATWadmin On January 19th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

795151-639531-thumbnail.jpgIt’s funny how the UK MSM continues to cheer-lead for John McCain to get the Republican nomination for the 2008 Presidential election! Particularly when the latest poll shows RUDY GIULIANA with a clear lead according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports.

28 per cent of respondents would support the former New York City mayor in a 2008 primary. Arizona senator John McCain is second with 20 per cent, followed by former House of Representatives speaker Newt Gingrich with 14 per cent, and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney with eight per cent. 

Now one can take a view that there is still plenty of time for things to change, and who can guess what else might happen to influence the outcome, but SURELY the refusal of the UK MSM to accept that the blessed McCain is NOT the only contender speaks volumes for their own inherent liberal bias?

THE CLIMATE CHANGE ENFORCERS…

By ATWadmin On January 19th, 2007 at 10:40 pm

I’m sure that you may have read that the "Weather Channel’s" most prominent climatologist is advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming.

This latest call to silence skeptics follows a year (2006) in which skeptics were compared to "Holocaust Deniers" and Nuremberg-style war crimes trials were advocated by several climate alarmists. Well, here’s an experienced Meteoreologist who has an opinion worth hearing…

I have been in operational meteorology since 1978, and I know dozens and dozens of broadcast meteorologists all over the country. Our big job: look at a large volume of raw data and come up with a public weather forecast for the next seven days. I do not know of a single TV meteorologist who buys into the man-made global warming hype. I know there must be a few out there, but I can’t find them. Here are the basic facts you need to know:

*Billions of dollars of grant money is flowing into the pockets of those on the man-made global warming bandwagon. No man-made global warming, the money dries up. This is big money, make no mistake about it. Always follow the money trail and it tells a story. Even the lady at “The Weather Channel” probably gets paid good money for a prime time show on climate change. No man-made global warming, no show, and no salary. Nothing wrong with making money at all, but when money becomes the motivation for a scientific conclusion, then we have a problem. For many, global warming is a big cash grab.

*The climate of this planet has been changing since God put the planet here. It will always change, and the warming in the last 10 years is not much difference than the warming we saw in the 1930s and other decades. And, lets not forget we are at the end of the ice age in which ice covered most of North America and Northern Europe.

If you don’t like to listen to me, find another meteorologist with no tie to grant money for research on the subject. I would not listen to anyone that is a politician, a journalist, or someone in science who is generating revenue from this issue.

In fact, I encourage you to listen to WeatherBrains episode number 12, featuring Alabama State Climatologist John Christy, and WeatherBrains episode number 17, featuring Dr. William Gray of Colorado State University, one of the most brilliant minds in our science. WeatherBrains, by the way, is our weekly 30 minute netcast.

I have nothing against “The Weather Channel”, but they have crossed the line into a political and cultural region where I simply won’t go.

instead of just a’wishin!

When Nick Griffin and his compatriot Mark Collett were secretly filmed while making speeches at a private function, the police jumped to investigate after the films were shown on ‘The Secret Agent’ on Al-Beeb. Their findings were given a high priority, and the Crown Prosecution Service decide to go for a ‘Full House’ and sent both for trial on two charges of using words or behaviour intended to stir up racial hatred in a speech in Keighley. After a re-trial, held because the jury were unable to reach a verdict first time around, both were found ‘Not Guilty’ and discharged from the trial.

We will all now set our watches, or computer clocks, or even the ‘Slowest Clock in the World, so we can gauge when the police and the C.P.S. will finally decide to lay charges of ‘using  words or behaviour intended to stir up racial hatred’ after the ‘Undercover Mosques’ film from Channel Four, already the subject of posts from Alison, David and myself! As I commented (on the same topic) upon another blog, “I wrote my own M.P., but I ain’t holding my breath whilst awaiting a reply!”

One small point has possibly escaped the attention of many commentators; is anyone as amazed as I was to view a factual documentary giving the real ‘low-down’ on the hidden Islamics in our midst made by, and broadcast on, Channel Four?

I Hear You Knocking

By ATWadmin On January 19th, 2007 at 6:01 pm

Many of us have probably applied to join a club or a society sometime during our lives.  For the most part we are successful.  There are times when our lifestyles preclude membership of eligibility.  For example, if I want to take possession of an American Express platinum card, I have to hold an offshore bank account.  As I don’t have one there would be no point in me applying.  The response would always be the same – ‘No!’

This principle should apply with asylum seekers and, in all honesty, in most other countries – notwithstanding any formal declarations to the contrary – it probably would.  But most other countries don’t have a government with the ideological commitment to dilute and destroy the indigenous numbers and culture that this New Labour government has.  Therefore, if you are an ‘asylum seeker’ who has explored every possible avenue to gain a foothold in this country – and failed – you will be allowed to re-apply.

‘Ah, but isn’t that a part of our international obligations?’ I hear the liberals cry.  Yes it is.  However, I suspect this administration will be far keener on honouring every dotted ‘i’ and crossed ‘t’ when it comes to facilitating the maximum number of aliens they can possibly manage than the likes of our European neighbours.  Go to any EU member state and you will know that the UK is first and foremost at adopting every single directive emanating from Brussels; far more so than the so-called ‘committed’ members.  You also have a situation in northern France where towns are crowded with ‘asylum seekers’ who have travelled through many EU states without claiming asylum.  But the underlying belief is that they will eventually find their way to the UK, so why bother trying to deport them.  ‘Them Brits ‘ill take anybody in.  The softest and silliest idiots in the world, them Brits are..’ goes the unspoken truism when it comes to asylum and immigration.

A few years ago we topped the global league for the number of ‘asylum seekers’ relative to our population.  We are still one of the favoured destinations.  Has anybody ever thought of the reason why.  Don’t fall for all this MSM guff about ‘historical tolerance’ and a ‘welcoming attitude’.  We have these leeches here (and let’s not beat about the bush.  That’s what they are!!) because we have a welfare system that is the laughing stock of the developed world.  ‘Come on in, there’s plenty of room.  Have a house.  Have a wardrobe full of clothes.  Have your 14 kids educated in mainstream schools at taxpayers’ expense.  Have a variety of benefits to choose from.  Have this, that and the other’.  And all this when those who are born here and have worked all their lives get the drippings from the government’s pension table.  It’s all well and good to have international obligations.  But when you have a government positively committed to a mass influx, irrespective of reason; and when you have a welfare system ripe for the picking, you’re going to have trouble keeping people out!
