I was greatly entertained to read Tony Blair exhort Gordon Brown that a future lurch to the Left by Labour would place the party in opposition for years to come.

This suggests that Labour is NOT already firmly anchored in the hard Left! Sorry, no sensible person buys that crock. The Media want us to swallow it, of course, since the great pretense since 1997 has been to pretend that Labour is "centre-ground" and that Blair was Thatcher’s successor. Ludicrous. David Cameron also pretends this to be the case as he drags the once-proud Conservative Party leftwards -to the alleged centre of British politics.

In fact, when one looks at the vast increase in taxation under Labour, when once considers the massive increase in the size and reach of the State, when one reviews the radical gay rights agenda it has pursued, the dumbing down of education, the impositions on business – Labour is Leftism incarnate. All that has changed is how Blair is particular presents himself, chameleon-like. That will not be the case with Brown who lacks the ability to pass himself off as anything other than a tax-and-spend man of the left.

The problem for British politics is not that we have parties of the Left – all three main parties are in THAT camp – but that we lack a Party of the RIGHT which is coherent and credible. The UKIP has started to look a bit like a contender in this regard and I wish it well. Meanwhile the beat in UK politics is LEFT, LEFT and LEFT again. Pretending otherwise is folly.

coxflowersPA1702_228x193.jpgThe shooting to death of 15 year old Billy Cox in London has caused a lot of media attention. Inevitably the TV studios have been full of liberals wailing that Billy has been let down "by society" and that "more money" has to be poured into local communities so future instances of gang warfare can be averted.

Total and absolute nonsense!

Young Billy was a drugs dealer, shot dead by rivals on his estate. He was convicted in December of burglary and electronically tagged under a 12-month supervision order. He was kicked out of school six weeks ago. Since then, he had been selling crack cocaine from the two-bedroom family home while his parents were at work.

It is a sad thing when a young boy gets so brutally shot to death, and I do hope that those who killed him are brought to justice, but when they are, what then? They will most likely get a derisory judicial sentence, then sent to one of Her Majesty’s plush prisons from which they can always escape by walking out if they take the notion, whilst some Human Rights Lawyer works out a way to get compensation for them.

Lord Tebbit was right about this the other night on "Question Time" when he said that we must clamp down on armed crime by punishing those who commit it in no uncertain terms. We also need to send a message of zero tolerance concerning drug dealing. These armed gangs of black youth are all about selling drugs. That is their raison d’etre. So each gang needs smashed by the police and the members put away. We also need a strong police presence on the ground in these feral areas.

Finally, the PARENTS of these children have a legal and moral responsibility for their behaviour up to age 18. These teenage gangsters running around with their guns and knives and drugs are an indictment on the failure of their parents. But once again, any parent that seeks to actually admonish their child for bad behaviour is more than likely to find themselves up in front of a Judge than a member of these drug dealing gangs! Once more Government skews the judicial system in favour of the guilty.

A liberal Rights-based culture is destroying our society from within. 15 year old crack dealers being shot by their rivals in London is just one sad manifesation of this.

A colleague mentioned this documentary in an off-the-cuff comment.
I think it provides a plausible explanation of tangled webs in general. Enjoy.

In for a hat-trick tonight – this is a bit of a classic which still sounds fresh today! I can remember buying the single. I was never a big Joy Division fan but I can appreciate a good song! Sad end for the lead singer but the band played on

Here’s an energy filled song by one of the best British singer-songwriters, Paul Weller. I like the contained anger in this song and hope you enjoy it…..

One Rule For Me, Another Rule For Thee …

LIBERALS, all queer in one way or another, were united in outrage recently when Catholic adoption agencies requested an exemption from new ‘anti-discrinatory’ legislation. Their requests to continue placing children in accordance with their beliefs were met with the usual reasoned, understanding, Lefty response.

Amongst the usual ‘bigot!’ and ‘homophobe!’, Harriet Harman’s  "You can either be against discrimination or you can allow for it. You can’t be a little bit against discrimination" was about as least hysterical as it got, if still misguided.

Well, the Equality Act 2006 is in and we are past considering why liberals have forced Catholics to hand small children into the hands of queers. They have won the day. We live in an age of equality for all and the violence of law shall be brought to bear on all who strain to break free of the liberal straightjacket. All except a few, that is.

Section 52, relating to ‘Public authorities’, states:

(1) It is unlawful for a public authority exercising a function to do any act which constitutes discrimination.

This is followed by:

(3) The prohibition in subsection (1) shall not apply to-

(a) the House of Commons,

(b) the House of Lords,

(c) the authorities of either House of Parliament,

(d) the Security Service,

(e) the Secret Intelligence Service,

(f) the Government Communications Headquarters, or

(g) a part of the armed forces of the Crown which is, in accordance with a requirement of the Secretary of State, assisting the Government Communications Headquarters.

When these lying pigs berated Catholics their morality and said that anti-discrimination laws must apply to all, they clearly meant everyone except themselves. I’m glad I’m not one of those liberals who dared lecture Catholics on the wisdom of this law. I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror without feeling shamed and embarrassed.

Monty Python seems to have caught your attention today on Andrew’s thread about the Life of Brian. Here’s a great classic sketch which I often think about when people ask me to provide a political explanation for whatever, you see, I have a theory……

Here’s an obscure but wonderful song that I really like. I remember hearing it for the first time about 30 years ago and never could find it in the shops. It had been a big hit years previously but somehow I had missed it. But eventually I tracked it down and it is a little gem. I’m sure you will identify the guitarist…before the last twenty seconds of the song

It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. The Ulster Unionist Party has solemnly promised that it will share power with the delegates of terrorism, that it will sit in power with such monstrosities, and that it is proud to do so. Whitened Sepulchres is the best expression I can think of to describe this lot. Bottom-line-decent people DON’T vote Ulster Unionist.

Not something that I have to explain

The DUP reaction to the resignation of Craigavon councillor Mark Russell highlights the breathtaking arrogance of that party.

Mr Russell’s comments in today’s News Letter clearly show that he is a principled Unionist who actually believed what his party said in 2003 and 2005.

Mr Russell told the paper

“I have no choice but to tender my resignation to the party as they have given me no assurances that they will adhere to their manifesto pledges.

Having been a member of the party it is crystal clear that if you vote for the DUP at this election you will be voting for Sinn Fein/IRA in government”.

Responding to Mr Russell’s decision to quit the party, DUP Upper Bann Assembly candidate Stephen Moutray said

“Exactly how a solitary independent candidate can hope to influence two governments and the other political parties to go along with their agenda is not something that I have to explain. That is a matter for others”.

What is noticeable is that Mr Moutray did not dispute Mr Russell’s claim that a vote for the DUP is a vote to put Sinn Fein/IRA in office.

Yes, Mr Moutray, you may not have to explain how an independent will influence two governments but you do have to explain why you are going to share power with unrepentant terrorists.
