Being for the Benefits of Mrs Kite

By ATWadmin On February 12th, 2007 at 8:48 am

It is truly awesome.  A third of all households in the UK are dependent on one or more State benefits for at least half of their income.  Naturally a far greater proportion goes to homes headed by single parents.  Lefties like to describe it as ‘taking care of the poor’.  It is no such thing.  What this government seeks to do is to make a large slice of the population so dependent on the continuation of a Labour administration, it will be sure of retaining their votes at every General Election.  It is rather like a surreptitious and more benign version of the Saw films.  People in those movies are given challenges, frequently involving a large amount of bodily torture, in order to test their commitment to their own survival.  Labour, by dangling these State goodies – funded primarily by those who are too self-sufficient and too proud to even consider the prospect of hand-outs – in front of people, they are playing mind games with the limits of their comfort zone.  ‘If you don’t vote Labour, you’ll lose all that lovely lucre.’

It has been the same story with Labour government post-war.  Every time the Lefties are in power two things happen:

  1. The public sector balloons in terms of both its remit and the number of employees.
  2. State benefits become the norm for more and more people.

We are witnessing the same thing now.  Labour administrations like to make a significant proportion of the people in Britain dependent on them for economic well-being, because their management of everybody else’s economic well-being is driven by the heady cocktail of class envy, taxation gluttony, and contempt for entrepreneurialism.  Thus, when a broad mass of the people wake up and realise they’ve been conned, Labour always has the leeching classes to fall back on.

CLIMATE AID…..?

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 4:04 pm

Rev Al Gore is the new Bob Geldof and Climate Aid is the new Live Aid?

"A series of concerts "bigger than Live Aid" is being planned for July, in a bid to put the subject of climate change before an audience of a global audience of 2bn. The event, scheduled for July 7, will feature co-ordinated film, music and television events in seven cities including London, Washington DC, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Kyoto, with major broadcasters and media owners aiming to extend the reach of public awareness of global warming. It is understood that former US vice-president Al Gore, whose movie An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change to cinema audiences last year, will announce the event tomorrow in London."

 

And so the evangelists for Global Warming continue their quest to convert us to their cause. Clearly Pop Stars are the very people to help us understand we need to mend our ways to save the planet, right?

STARDUST MEMORIES…..

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 3:55 pm

stardust.jpgI noticed that over a hundred people have gathered in Dublin for a special anniversary service to remember the 48 young people who perished in the Stardust disaster. Families and survivors have joined together to pay tribute to the dead, who were mostly aged in their teens and early 20s when they died in the Valentine’s nightclub blaze in north Dublin 26 years ago. I can remember the tragedy at the time and trust that those who lost sons and daughters have found peace. So tragic to lose so many young people on Valentine’s Day.

TRAILER TRASH OR A CANDLE IN THE WIND?

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 10:21 am

ANNA9smith190_1.jpgThe press has been full of the death of Anna Nicole Smith. 

Her claim to fame of course was that in 1994, when she was a mere 26, she married an 89-year-old billionaire, J Howard Marshall. Naturally it was love at first sight – of his wallet. I’m sure he got what he wanted from the deal as well – she was a very attractive looking young woman back then.

I think her story is a tragic one – she pursued wealth, found it; she wanted fame, got it in buckets; and she ends up being found dying, on her own, in a Florida hotel. Apparently she modelled herself on Marilyn Monroe – now she shares the same fate. I feel sorry for her family – the media may have lost a "reality TV" star that they could label "trailer trash" but her FAMILY have lost a daughter, a sister, a mother. Fame does not ensure happiness.  I think that India Knight’s article here on Anna is well worth a read – I think it is VERY wrong the way the media treated her. Rest in peace.

WORLD’S WORST DICTATORS…

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 10:09 am

dictators-cover.jpgHere’s an interesting poll that gives you a list of the WORST dictators in 2007. Oddly enough, the MSM tends not to give them a tough time – too busy attacking Bush I guess. If you study the list, I think you’ll find that there is little to disagree with.

WHY CAMERON IS A DOPE HEAD…..

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 9:37 am

Alright – so now we know that Conservative Leader David Cameron DID take illegal drugs when at Eton College. The media line is to suggest that no-one "gives a monkeys" about this – with polls showing that 101% of Brits couldn’t care less if politicians do dabble in minor drugs in their "private life". Presumably if they move on to become wasted heroine-junkies then maybe the public becomes a little more judgmental? I have to say that I suspect the media’s OWN motives here, as many of them are alleged to partake in all sorts of illicit chemically driven activities. White powder and medialand are far from being strangers. 

Now, I have to say that I do not care much what Cameron got up to when at school. Many people do "experiment" with drugs and I see no reason to hold that against them. I did not do so myself, but that was my own call and I have no issues with those who thought differently. But by the same token, politics is a very public profession and having private secrets is nigh-on impossible – so Cameron SHOULD have told the truth when asked by the MSM if he had ever taken cannabis. No one would have thought any less of him (Me included)

But the reason I say Cameron is a Dope Head is because he has undermined the very essence of British Conservatism, making his Party indistinguishable from NuLabour, moving it ever leftwards, and embracing depraved aspects of socialism such as wealth redistribution (theft) which NO Conservative could ever reasonably support.

NO PLACE FOR ISLAM….

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 9:20 am

Here’s an interesting article by Dore Gold highlighting the relentless violence of the religion of peace wherever it gains a foothold of power. I’m sure you will all have seen images of radical Palestinian Muslims assaulting the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem with rocks and bottles, forcing Israeli security forces to to clear out and close down the holiest religious site in the Jewish faith and then storm the Temple Mount compound above from where the attack was launched. Why has this area suddenly become a tinderbox of inter-religious strife?

The attack on the Western Wall today illustrates once again the dangers of ever letting Jerusalem fall into the hands of radical Islamic groups, like Hamas. Since 1998, when the Buddhist statues in the Bamiyan Valley in Afghanistan were first attacked, an "evil wind" has been blowing across the Middle East and South Asia, stripping holy sites of the immunity they have enjoyed in the past. Shiite Mosques in Iraq and Pakistan have been blown up, Joseph’s Tomb in the West bank was set on fire by Palestianian mobs, the Church of the Nativity was invaded by a joint Hamas-Fatah unit.

 

You will recall of course that dividing Jerusalem and handing the Palestinian Islamic masses half the city is deemed sensible policy by liberals such as Kadima.

THE RE-DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH…….

By ATWadmin On February 11th, 2007 at 8:58 am

hain2.jpgWhat do you think of wannabe Deputy Leader of the Labour Party Peter Hain’s suggestion that city high-fliers should lose two thirds of their bonuses to deprived communities or else their firms will heavier regulation and tax? Hain, playing to the hateful socialist gallery, adds..

"There’s a real problem of people on average incomes feeling there’s a sort of super rich class right at the top.What is it? Four thousand city workers receiving more than a million pounds each in bonuses. People don’t feel that’s proportionate."

Listen, I say good luck to those who earn a million in bonus payments. I woudn’t want their lifestyle but I see no reason to punish them, based on some nasty envious streak. This is institutionalised THEFT Hain is advocating, class-envy through and through. It shows how Labour HATE those who succeed by their own merits.
