Sean of the Dead (Heads)

By ATWadmin On April 9th, 2007 at 10:09 pm

Remember Sean Connery?  He played the quintessential BRITISH spy James Bond.  He then went on to whinge about not being awarded a BRITISH knighthood.  Today, flushed with millions he made from a career in Britain, with films patronised by British people, he says he finds the concept of this United Kingdom so bad for him that he’ll only return from his self-imposed exile in the Bahamas once Scotland becomes independent.  That means he’ll die in the Bahamas.

As a millionaire, has Connery thought about how much his taxes will have to rise to find this separatist Nirvana?  In a new political dispensation overwhelmingly dominated by parties attuned to old-fashioned ‘screw the rich for every penny they’ve got’ mentality?  Thought not.  For, as an actor, he must play to the gallery.  In this instance the gallery is the essentially Anglophobic wing of Scottish politics. Take my advice, stay in the Bahamas and do us all a favour!  That way you’ll spare us Unionists your presence as well as keeping more of what you earn from an increasingly mediocre acting career.

For Queen, Country and Murdoch

I honestly couldn’t bring myself to watch the interview Sir Trevor McDonald conducted with Faye Turney earlier this evening.  There is something overwhelmingly atrocious about our military personnel turning the accounts of their working lives into a mini soap opera.  For that’s exactly what we are dealing with when we look at those who were imprisoned by the Iranians, now seeking to sell their stories for media largesse.

When one joins any branch of the military in this country, one signs the Official Secrets Act. Not only does this act preclude you from speaking freely about the work you do as a member of HM Armed Forces, it also places restrictions on such talk for up to ten years after cessation of military/defence service.  Furthermore, those who join the Army or the Royal Navy are well aware that capture and, alas, fatalities are a possible scenario before the conclusion of their career.  What if they all went around telling hawkish journalists what they had endured?

Some have said the interviews and stories were necessary to provide a counterbalance to Iranian propaganda.  People in this country don’t need an excuse to detest the Iranians: they already do so in droves.  The fact that Turney offered to donate her monetary award to her fellow colleagues is also no defence.  Britain has a proud military history with soldiers of a professional stature the rest of us could admire.  Now what do we have?  A woman who puffs on a fag in front of the world’s media.  She also had a young daughter to look after, which begs the question on why she is doing a job like that when some motherhood and apple pie should have been more in evidence.  Anyone who participates in this charade is a disgrace to their uniform.

Milk turns sour, water runs uphill, I agree with a government spokesman

By ATWadmin On April 9th, 2007 at 5:46 pm

Racism is fuelled by the teaching of British values in schools, according to the commie president of the National Union of Teachers, one Baljeet Ghale. Needless to say, Mrs Ghale received a standing ovation for the speech to the NUT conference which also declared that Britain has no monopoly on free speech, tolerance and respect for the rule of law, and managed to compare Cuba favourably with Britain. I doubt she was being sarcastic. A government spokesman dismissed her claim as ‘nonsense’.

If I had children of school age I would interrogate the school head and teachers until I was satisfied that they weren’t commies. Unless satisfied, I would remove them to a school staffed by normal people, or home school them. The system is one in which children are now exposed daily to propaganda extolling the virtues of the Human Rights Act, the EU and something called ‘citizenship’. 132 of 171 local education authorities now allow the children in their care to be fingerprinted. Where Orwell gave warnings, some clearly spotted a user guide. State schools excel at teaching teenagers how to score and take drugs, and become pregnant, yet cannot turn ever greater numbers of children into literate beings in 11 years of compulsory education.

In truth, it’s a situation long in coming. At university in the early 1990s I encountered appalling standards of literacy amongst peers, and this wasn’t an ex-poly. But then the reds have long lurked in classrooms. Since the late-1950s anti-education has been the real education policy of all parties, with Marxist-inspired ideas gradually taking over from robust, disciplined methods. So empty now is the curriculum of any meaningful educational content that outright Leftist propaganda easily fills the void. The privatisation of the state system is so unlikely that only a purge of teachers can bring about change. Unless and until we come to our senses and (rightly) regard communism in the way that we do Nazism, our children will be imperilled and abused by the state school system.

Three not so wise monkeys

By ATWadmin On April 9th, 2007 at 2:54 pm

threewisemonkeys.pngSelf-confessed IRA man and Deputy First Minister elect Martin McGinness told an Easter Rising commemoration in Donegal:
"We have entered the end phase of our struggle. I truly believe that we have begun the countdown to a united Ireland, and we are continuing to get that message out as widely as possible. Denying the obvious will serve no purpose, other than to give false hope to those wishing it were not so".

Note that McGinness regards current political developments as nothing more than another “phase of [the] struggle”. There was certainly nothing in what he said to suggest that Republicans are in “sackcloth and ashes” about their murderous past.

But then I didn’t expect him to repent.

The reaction of Unionist politicians, however, is of greater interest.

Jeffrey Donaldson said that McGinness was living in a “fantasy world” because he will soon be “a minister of the Crown” while Danny Kennedy laughed off the comments saying that the soon to be DFM was “tilting at windmills”.

Darwin Templeton articulates a similar view in the News Letter editorial telling us that the current Republican leadership has sold out the ideals of 1916.

Could I suggest that Unionists would be better following McGinness’s advice? “Denying the obvious will serve no purpose”. Sinn Fein/IRA ARE Republicans and they DO NOT accept the right of Northern Ireland to exist.

The two Unionist parties and their lackeys in the Unionist press might be following a policy of hear no republicanism, see no republicanism, speak no republicanism as they lead us over the cliff but I intend to keep my ears and eyes open and use this platform to highlight what others choose to ignore!

We are advised by the ‘really-relevant-N.U.T’ that Black Caribean boys are routinely discriminated against on a racial basis, and it is because of this that they enderperform all other sectors of the student population of this country! They also state that the parents should be given ‘encouragement’ which usually translates as ‘give them more money’, and agree with an Education Dept. report which says that schools and teachers are ‘unwittingly racist’!

The report’s author stated "I think it’s nothing short of a national scandal that, 60 years after the Empire Windrush brought some 300 people from the Caribbean to these shores, young black boys, Afro-Caribbean boys, are still underachieving at the rate at which they are."

If this be true, they should immediately report their worried to the police, who will  no doubt be keen to investigate these allegations, before asking the Crown Prosecutors for an urgent decision!

In other words, what a load of old politically-correct rubbish! If these black youths underperform, it is because they don’t want to know about self-advancement, preferring instead to join a gang, deal in the drugs of choice, go forth armed with either guns or knives and ruin even more lives before, happily, their own is snuffed out by violence!

The huge pack of reporters were mooching away disappointed and discontented, as their target, one Miriam Jamahwhay-Khameniei a black, crippled, lesbian mother of four children, (two adopted and two by in-vitro fertilisation) (carried to surrogate completion by a third party) had completed her prepared statement, issued through the mouth of her Q.C. barrister spokesperson. The voluble, shrill tones had been stilled once the negotiations, guaranteeing her and, unfortunately her partner, (unfortunately because the partner had just filed for a divorce from the civil partnership entered into by the pair about twelve milli-seconds after the legislation became legal) had been faxed to her lawyer’s Lincoln’s Inn Field’s offices for scrutiny, and the triumphant representative of the Sun/News/Daily Sport/Mirror/Wisden tabloid was witnessed as he tried to cram her bulk into the limousine, preparatory to the journey to the promised four-and-three-quarter star hotel suite where the woman would be allowed to tell her story in comfort and seclusion.

The newspapers and t.v. stations, home to that same pack of reporters had been alerted by no less than seventy-three separate tips and cellphone calls, only thirty-three of which were accompanied by photos caught of the incident on those same mobile cameras, all showing in graphic detail the exact moment when the Tesco cashier politely told Ms. Jamahwhay-Khameniei, a divorcee whose former husband had served in the Royal Air Force as a mess-steward, that the club-card vouchers passed across by the customer were no less than eleven months out-of-date, and were therefore not suitable for use in the transaction to help pay for the groceries in the customer’s trolley.

The rear number-plate of the customised Bentley had just disappeared out of the car-park exit, the triumphant victor of the latest bidding war slumped very loosely across the wide rear seat of the limousine; when the mobile phones of all the assembled mob of exasperated reporters, cameramen and production assistants simultaneously rang in that unlovely cacophony known as “the next scoop”, and the pack was off once more. They were galvanised into action by the reality story of a Territorial Army nurse, in civilian life a plumber’s mate’s assistant, having hit her hand with a hammer!

From the first loosening of the Ministry of Defence strictures against serving personnel selling their stories, the floodgates had of course been opened wide, and now only the most important stories were covered in depth!


Happy Easter !

Matthew 28: 1-10

    28:1 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” 8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

Goose Stepping on the 91st

By ATWadmin On April 7th, 2007 at 6:42 pm

Easter Sunday traditionally marks the time when most people across the Christian world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.  The symbol of the Easter egg is supposed to represent the advent of new life.  In Oireland, however, they seem increasingly less keen on commemorating life as commemorating death – death by terrorism, that it.  For tomorrow, another goose-stepping parade of soldiers (watched by Bertie and the Republic’s foreign-born president) will take place in the Irish capital.  Furthermore, another 100 or so sickening gatherings of human flotsam are set to gather across Ulster and Ireland to ‘honour’ those who gave their lives ‘for Irish freedom’

I know, it sounds like the sort of cobblers Mel Gibson thundered out in Braveheart.  The saddest thing of all is the number who are besotted – not only with the terrorist lionisation at the heart of these gatherings, but with the Provo ‘one last push and we’ll have the entire island’ fantasia.  For make no mistake, tomorrow is long on bullshit; short on contemporary reality.

In most countries the ‘independence day’ (if they have one) is held on the actual day the sovereignty of the former ruler came to an end. In Malta, for example, there are three days in the year to mark the loosening of ties with the United Kingdom.  September 21st is Jum l-Indipendenza (Independence Day); December 13th marks Republic Day (when the Queen was replaced as Maltese Head of State); and Freedom Day takes place on March 31st (the day when the Maltese gained absolute autonomy).

You could argue that Irish independence took place either in 1921 or 1949.  Nonetheless, there is no official commemoration of these two dates.  The Irish seem to be engrossed by lowering themselves to instead honour a terrorist uprising whose geographical extent hardly benefited what is now the territory of the Republic.  The uprising had virtually no support; was confined almost exclusively to Dublin alone; was totally pointless as Home Rule was already on the statute book at Westminster; and led to 450 deaths of which only 76 were amongst the rebels themselves (the rest were innocent civilians).  Most wars of independence are fought in uniforms on battlefield, not between the forces of law and order and a few cliquish idiots with ideas well above their station!!

What is perhaps the biggest irony of all is that the Irish are increasingly keen to commemorate the very event which makes the aspiration for Anschluss impossible.  The Irish, like the Indians, failed to realise that there was no way they could keep a united entity outside United Kingdom rule.  The difference today, of course, is the Indians are now reconciled to reality.  Judging by the triumphalist bile that will definitely flow from the gobs of Provo terrorists and apologists tomorrow, republicans are still light years from reconciling themselves to reality.
