A READER WRITES…!!!

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 9:16 pm

Every day, the ATW mail box fills up with a range of interesting views, most of which are constructive and I do appreciate you taking the time to write to me. Sometimes, purely down to work pressures, I may miss your mail or might not reply, and I hope you will forgive me. However, every now and then, I read an outstanding email, and so it is that I bring you the unexpurgated wisdom of a Mr Niall O’Riordan, who I’m guessing might just be Irish. Here is what he has to say…..

Dear Sir,

It truly is a sad day when ill-informed, mentally deficient folk such
as yourself are given access to the internet. I found your blog to be
a collection of bigotted, ignorant, homophobic tripe.

Unfortunately, I am positive that you will continue with your journal
of idiocy and many other people will stumble accross your site,
totally by accident I might add, only to be exposed to your ridiculous
thoughts and beliefs.

The saddest part is that your brain has such a limited capacity that
you'll believe that it is me that is the idiot.

This belief is WRONG!!!

IT IS YOU!!

But there is hope. Its not too late, and even you can learn to be a
better person.

I wish you very little in the future except enough complaints about
your ridiculous blog that you might stop it.

You're a shining example of modern Britain and it's fabulous education system.

Yours Sincerly,

A Friend..........

Now then, I'm sure that Niall will want to hear your views - assuming his sedation has worn off....

Sometimes It’s Hot & Sometimes It’s Cold

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 5:52 pm

Consider the following chart from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism  which documents the trends in the media reporting climate in an alarmist fashion:

  “…media alarmism, like climate itself, runs in cycles:

Catastrophic Manmade global warming:   1981 – present
Catastrophic Manmade global cooling:     1954 – 1976
Catastrophic global warming:                   1929 – 1969
Catastrophic global cooling:                     1895 – 1932”

Like the stock market, Earth’s temperature goes up, and then it goes down.  And media alarmism is as fickle as the weather.

Two things are certain:
 

  • If climate trends hot, it will trend cold at sometime in the future, and vice versa.
  • Media alarmism will reverse course as well.


So, before you enthusiastically endorse politicians planning to line their pockets fund research to
Stop Global Warming with your tax receipts, you might just sit back and wait for this current phase of climate alarmism to run its course.

Huh?

1594201226_01__AA240_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpgAl Gore, still sulking after his precious was denied him in 2000, is to have his latest book published in May 2007.

 

Yes, the man who brought us An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It and Earth in the Balance, has written a new opus – The Assault on Reason.

 

At long last, a book written by a genuine expert on his subject!

A PASSPORT TO MASS MURDER…

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 4:49 pm

Just how dysfunctional is this lousy Blair UK government? Did you read that an al Qu’eda chief was issued with NINE British passports while he plotted to kill thousands of Londoners with a radioactive ‘dirty bomb’? Yes, really!

Dhiren Barot got TWO passports using false identities and SEVEN in his own name before his arrest in August 2004(!) – often by simply claiming he had lost them and applying for replacements.

I’m relieved this Islamic killer has been caught but I have the nagging thought that perhaps there are others who have been granted passports who plan to slaughter us by the thousand. Have we learnt NOTHING since 9/11?????

A RENDITION FLIGHT OF FANCY…

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 4:24 pm

I believe that Amnesty International has gradually morphed into a pathetic manifestation of reflexive anti-Americanism, a pale shadow of its once noble aims – and is much more concerned about the rights of terrorists than the terrorised.

So I was not surprised to read that its Northern Ireland Director (Comrade in chief?) Patrick Corrigan has welcomed the news that the "City of Derry" airport has BANNED "CIA rendition flights" from entering its hallowed facilities. The publicly-owned airport confirmed it is working out the practicalities of an “anti-rendition” policy after discussions with Amnesty International.  `I think we can say with as much confidence as we can garner that this will be a first for Europe,” said Patrick Corrigan, Amnesty spokesman. `We are not aware of any other local authority or any other airport in Europe which has a specific anti-rendition policy.”

Yes Patrick, and I think I can say with equal certainty that I doubt the CIA will be forwarding details of non-existant rendition practises to a miserable apology for an Airport such as this one. However it  shows where Amnesty invest their energy and resources. A flight of fancy from the moonbats, this one!

WHAT A DRIP!

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 4:11 pm

Who’d have guessed it? The ever cynical Secretary of State, the perma-tanned Peter Hain, has revealed that WATER CHARGES might, just might, be postponed for a whole  year, IF the DUP agree to share power with terrorists. What a great deal! – we bastardise the tenets of democratic government by accepting the delegates of murder and mayhem into power and all we get is a DEFFERMENT of water rates??? C’mon Peter – how about giving us a new national holiday – we could call it "TERROR DAY" – when we all can get a day off work to express our unmitigated joy at the IRA entering the government of Northern Ireland.

STALIN TO SUCCEED BLAIR?

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 3:58 pm

I chortled at the characterisation of Gordon Brown by the former Head of the Civil Service who said the Chancellor operates with a "Stalinist ruthlessness".

Lord Turnbull says that Mr Brown had a "very cynical view of mankind and his colleagues"  (Can you blame him – after all the Labour Party is a political sewer) He added that he would not allow "serious discussion" with colleagues. And dear Gordon is to be our next Prime Minister, by Royal Appointment of Tony Blair! Just when you think it could not get worse..along comes our Caledonian Stalin…!!!!

CAN I PLEASE HAVE MORE?

I took part in quite a lengthy discussion on BBC Radio Ulster "Talkback" programme regarding the alleged "Peace Dividend" our politicians are seeking to…ahem… "negotiate" with Gordon Brown. I made the point that there is no such thing as a free lunch and that putting politicians in charge of £billions who couldn’t run a whelk stall is just not a terribly good idea. They will dole out OUR money (Not Gordon Browns, he has no money of his own to give away) to their preferred courtier groups in order to buy future votes. I thought the attached image summed up my views most eloquently.

uk veil ban in schools

By ATWadmin On March 20th, 2007 at 9:31 am

Under health and safety guidelines the government will announce plans today to allow schools to ban the veil. The Sun is reporting. The measure follows a court decision ruling against a 12 year old girl who wanted to wear the full-face niqab in class in her Buckinghamshire school last month. It is possibly intended by the government to curb any future cases.  Education Secretary Alan Johnson has drawn up the updated guidance and will allow schools the choice. Where possible, schools should try to tolerate a wide range of religious and cultural items of clothing. But they may ban certain garments, such as the full-face veil, if it is felt that they impede safety, security or the ability to learn.  ‘Mr Johnson is convinced there will be no serious opposition to the move’.  However the governments plans have already been criticised as ‘simply shocking’ by shrill muslim leaders. Why? Some within Islam have argued that it is not a religious requirement to wear the niqab.  And whilst I welcome him saying it impedes learning, he could have gobe further and offered clear support for valuing equality in schools by adding that the veil teaches girls early on that they are not equal. There is no place for the veil in schools. This a good move, I hope the government does not backtrack on this.

the price of speaking out

By ATWadmin On March 19th, 2007 at 6:35 pm

795151-732284-thumbnail.jpgOn IWD there was a fairly unpublicised speakers event organised by the National Secular Society here in London, discussing the veil.  Harrys Place is reporting that one of the speakers Taslima Nasreen, a Bangladeshi feminist writer has had a Rs500,000 (£6,000) bounty put on her head by an Indian Muslim group, the All India Ibtehad Council.  It doesnt specify the event as the catalyst but considering what little publicity or MSM follow up there was around their important discussions, this puts into perspective the risks women like Taslima take in speaking out at any time.  Taslima Nasreen fled Bangladesh in 1994 after Muslim fundamentalists declared her writings blasphemous and demanded her execution.

You can hear what she said at the London event about women’s role in Islam,  her constant struggle to be heard, her desire to give inspiration to other women, her challenge for a secular humanism and equality for all here.

According to the Daily Times in India, Taqi Raza Khan, the president of the council offered the reward to anyone carrying out the "extermination of this notorious woman", saying "Taslima has put Muslims to shame in her writing. She should be killed and beheaded and anyone who does this will get a reward from the council."
