Here’s an instance of how to do things back to front…
Four high-profile UK jihadists fighting or recruiting for Islamic State militants in Syria are to be subjected to UN sanctions – at the UK’s request. The UN’s updated sanctions list named the four as Omar Hussain from High Wycombe, Nasser Muthana from Cardiff, Aqsa Mahmood from Glasgow and Sally-Anne Jones from Chatham in Kent. They will face a travel ban and a freeze of their assets.
Freezing their assets in fine but doesn’t this travel ban mean that they will stay in the UK? That’s the last place we want them. Send them to Syria and send a drone to accompany them.
I’ve written an article that should appear in The Newsletter in the coming days on the subject of “refugees”. I feel that the media, including our local media, have provided a very one sided view of what is happening across Europe so I hope my views will provide a certain…balance. I will publish here and link once it goes live.
Sadly, he doesn’t mean Groucho…
“The hard-left finance spokesman for Britain’s opposition Labour Party said on Monday that Karl Marx, co-author of “The Communist Manifesto”, is back in fashion because his ideas offer a definitive way to analyse the capitalist foundations of the modern Western economy.
After winning Labour’s top job by a landslide earlier this month, Jeremy Corbyn appointed John McDonnell – a former trade unionist who backs renationalising banks and imposing wealth taxes – as his finance minister-in-waiting.
“If you look at most of the institutions that are teaching economics today, Marx has come back in to fashion because people have gone back to his analysis of just the basics of how the system works,” McDonnell told BBC radio.
I am sure the BBC agreed. The very idea that a prospective Vice Chancellor of the UK should be advocating Karl Marx in 2015 is quite staggering.
Seven years in the White House and no-one’s told Obama you hold a flute by the stem. The man’s a barbarian –
Intriguing body language too; while Obama leans away uncomfortably, Putin seems to be looking at him with all the charm and warmth of a snake wondering how long he’ll toy with his snack before devouring it.
The occasion today was the 70th UN General Assembly. All the big cheeses were in town. Obama read out some platitudes, and then up stepped Putin to announce that the Middle East has a new sheriff. He wants a coalition to take on ISIS “as the allies did with Hitler”. At least I don’t think he means the ME will be bombed to ruins and all the women raped, but we’ll see.
Minutes earlier Obama said that Assad is the problem and that he’ll have to go, an idea which was firmly slapped down by Putin. Since he has the SU-30s at Latakia air base, Assad isn’t going anywhere soon.
I don’t know who came up with that seating arrangment for lunch, but he has a nose for mischief.
Media portrayal of the “refugees” is overwhelmingly sympathetic. So THIS might cause a few eyebrows to rise…
It’s so pitiful that there is little more to be said.
Fracking has been banned for the first time in Northern Ireland – the environment minister has announced in a new planning blueprint.
That’s the SDLP Minister, Mark H Durkan, a man who has the intellect of a retarded muppet. In his ideological opposition to a technology which has transformed the energy fortunes of other countries, Ulster says No. Let’s keep our nice expensive old energy sources.
Two quick stories for your reflection;
A Muslim man has confessed to strangling his 19-year-old daughter to death with his bare hands after learning from police she had been caught shoplifting condoms to have sex with her forbidden boyfriend. Asadullah Khan and his wife Shazia then dressed dead daughter Lareeb, a dental technician, in her clothes. They then wheeled her in a wheelchair from their high-rise apartment to the family car, drove to a secluded embankment in their home city of Darmstadt in Germany, and tipped the corpse down it.
Just your average German family these days? But don’t despair because I bring you news from Holland…

Child marriages are now deemed legal in Holland so long they are legal in the home country from whence the immigrant comes.
Looks like Europe is really coping well with the muslim surge.
