ENSLAVED TO THE STATE…

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 10:43 am

I note that Gold-plated public sector pensions are costing every family an average of £900 a year.

This is far greater than the amount many private sector workers can afford to put aside annually for their own retirement BUT it is what they must cough up in the form of taxes to look after their State sector colleagues!

Authoritative research from The Institute of Economic Affairs shows the cost of inflation-linked schemes for nearly six million state employees such as doctors, nurses, teachers and policemen has reached more than £22.3billion each year.

On average each one of the 25million households in the country must pay £900 to meet this bill and, according to the experts, this figure will pass the £1,000 mark and go on increasing. This huge burden will have to be met by today’s children when they start earning.

Richard Lambert, director-general of the CBI, the business lobby group, warned:

"’The failure to get to grips with public sector pensions is creating a wholly unsustainable burden for the taxpayer. It is also leading towards a society with two classes of citizen – one with a generous, early pension to look forward to, the other funding this through taxes while working longer and with a more uncertain retirement for themselves."

Chancellor Gordon Brown’s rapid expansion of the state payroll – 650,000 taxpayer-funded jobs have been created since Labour came to power in 1997 – is one reason why bills will go up.

To make matters worse, the argument that public sector workers deserve a better pension because they get paid less has disappeared. Official figures show the average salary for a full-time public sector worker is now £25,102, compared to £22,873 for somebody in the private sector. The State has moved to ensure its employees get paid the most. 

£18billion is paid out each year to retired members of unfunded schemes. The total rises to £22 billion if it includes the £4billion contribution paid by town halls to the council workers’ schemes. The number of public sector workers on six-figure salaries has more than trebled to nearly 1,000 in five years, figures revealed.

The top earners include BBC executives, members of Labour- dominated quangos and Whitehall mandarins. Despite the boardroom level salaries, civil servants are not exposed to the risks of the private sector. They also enjoy superior pension packages. In 2001, 320 staff at 25 public sector bodies earned £100,000 or more. By this year the figure had soared to 996.

Face it – the State is feathering the nest of those slaves who work directly for it by imposing punitive taxation on those who don’t.

SWINGING SOON….

It would be best if Saddam were executed within the next few days. He, and his evil regime, need consigned to history. Let it rest in peace in 2006. The longer they keep him waiting, the more the chance of mischief from the residual dregs of his terror regime. I think Iraq has suffered enough because of this man and so I hope the authorities act now. Let him dangle, to borrow a phrase.

THE GODFATHER of GODFATHERS NEW YEAR MESSAGE…

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 9:28 am

795151-609719-thumbnail.jpgDid you see that the man once described as "The Godfather of Godfathers" – IRA/Sinn Fein leader Martin McGuinness -has issued his message of hope for the New Year saying that "considerable progress" has been made over the Christmas on restoring power sharing to Northern Ireland. McGuinness said the constant contact between the Taoiseach and the British Prime Minister means an agreement on getting the institutions back up and running could be reached in the coming days. He also went onto say that the New Year will mark a fresh beginning for his party and the DUP.

Let me just say this. There can be NO accommodation between any decent democrat and the IRA. If the DUP negotiators have been dealing away over the holiday period, and I suspect they have, and are moving  ever closer to gaining agreement with the barbarians whose organisation is responsible for killing thousands of our fellow citizens, then shame on them. They will get their come uppance one way or another.  It’s a shame that Unionism is led by power hungry baboons.

JIVE TALKING……!

bee gees.jpgTony Blair doesn’t fool me for a minute. The media report that Blair is paying to use the Florida home of the Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb, The Prime Minister and members of his family are based at the $10m Miami Beach mansion while on holiday. He has faced criticism for staying for free at the holiday homes of friends in the past but a spokesman said there was a "private commercial arrangement". I bet.  

LOOK BEYOND THE STORY! It’s obvious, on reflection, that the Bee Gees have actually been directing UK Government policy for some years now!! I mean just look at those song titles if you need further convincing…

"I started a Joke" …..think Government immigration "policy" ….and the whole world IS laughing..at us.  

"Tragedy"….think Government education policy and the shocking fact that 25% of Primary School kids leave without basic reading or writing skills. Oh, it sure is a tragedy.

"Stayin’ Alive"..think Government indifference to providing adequate equipment for our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"How deep is your love"….think Blair’s infatuation with the IRA and the hand of history.

The 60-second Squatters

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 8:06 am

I’ve just looked at the little clock my monitor displays at the bottom right-hand side.  It says 8:07.  I rose from my bed at 6:40.  That means in the time it has taken me to eat my breakfast and turn on the computer, another 87 immigrants on average have arrived on these shores.  I live on a cul-de-sac with approximately 20 dwellings.  In other words, four such streets in this town could have been populated by the number of aliens which arrived here whilst I was busily munching away on an English breakfast.

Is anyone else as totally outraged and disgusted by this ethnic assault (for that’s what it is!) on our country, facilitated by a government ideologically committed to accommodating anything and everything which will dilute the predominantly white Judeo-Christian make-up of this society?  The media is fascinated and appalled by the number of Eastern Europeans who are coming here.  According to these statistics they only constitute around 20% of the total.  The rest are bombarding us from Africa and Asia.  And we all know what religion most of these bleeders will subscribe to!

I make no apology for my emotive language.  I am totally sick and tired of seeing a veritable United Nations group photoshoot every time I venture into the shopping areas of our major cities.  I am sick and tired of Auntie Beeb flashing on our television screens pictures of people supposedly representative of the majority population who are, in fact, ethnic jigsaw pieces in their grand puzzle of viewer indoctrination.  I am fed up with hearing about ‘this body set up to help immigrants’ or ‘that body established to facilitate Islamic cultural rights’.  I am outraged by the BBC’s attempt to cover, say, education stories of our age by deliberately choosing schools to report from that haven’t one white kid in the entire enrolment.  And before the cacophony of Leftists start denouncing me, they should realise that it is the Establishment that is creating racial issues (albeit subtly) here – not I.

‘We are a nation of immigrants’ say the Lefties.  Bulldung!  We had little in the way of what you might call ‘mass immigration’ waves here for 1,000 years.  Those who did arrive did so in far smaller numbers that Blair’s cabal have welcomed; and did so at a time when the country was considerably less overcrowded than it is now.  We have relatively easy borders to defend compared with other EU countries (our only land border is 200 miles long).  What we don’t have is a government willing to defend them and, more importantly, to preserve the ethnic cultural fabric responsible for underpinning this country throughout history.

THE SCOTTISH LORD HAW HAW….

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 12:40 pm

galloway saddam.jpgThe man known as “Lord Haw Haw” – Irishman William Joyce, was hanged for his propagandist broadcasting on behalf of the Nazis against our Allied Forces during WW2.  A deserved fate in my view.


So anyway, I happened to listen to the “lion of the left” George Galloway on the radio this morning and in the space of ten minutes he alleged that;




  • George W Bush is “even more stupid than Gerald Ford” (Nice touch, kicking a dead man George)


  • That the UK and US “supported” Saddam when he gassed the innocents at Hallabjah

  • That Galloway is not anti “all wars” – it’s just that there haven’t been any in the past fifty years he agreed with…


  • That the Government is starving to death patients in hospital…

..and so it went. Every so often, moonbats would phone in saluting Galloway for his “courage” and “honesty”. The dregs of British society clearly tune in to this programme!


I do believe in freedom of speech but I also recall that Galloway has praised the Jihadi insurgents as they go about their daily slaughter. I thought of phoning in and correcting his most elementary delusions but then again I rate speaking to Saddamite loving spawn pretty low on my daily list of priorities.


Galloway is a latter day Haw Haw. Back then we knew how to deal with such scum. Now, we salute them.

CONSIDERING BAKER….

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 10:29 am

james-baker-17-1-2003.jpgWhen it comes to considering the "realism" of Mr James Baker and his reprehensible report on how to best surrender to the Jihadi in Iraq, Moonbattery has a bit of background that you might want to read…..

Baker is a senior partner in the Baker Botts law firm, which is representing Saudi Arabians against the families of 9/11 victims, despite openly acknowledging that their clients pour $millions into terrorist organisations. Baker’s Saudi friends are still at it, shoveling money at the terrorists in Iraq to finance the killing of American troops – a subject Baker takes care not to mention. Just as most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, so are most of the foreign fighters that have been killed or captured in Iraq, although you won’t learn this from reading the Baker report. Saudis are also the #1 nationality at luxurious Club Gitmo. When 29 Gitmo guests were recently turned over to the Saudis, they were promptly set free to resume their terrorist activities.

 

Baker is also up to his neck in the Carlyle Group, which does a great deal of business with the Saudi royal family.

 

The Iraq Surrender Group had many people suspecting that Baker is a fool. But maybe it’s those of us who expect him to promote his own country’s interests who are fools.

THE DEATH OF LABOUR?

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 10:19 am

Delighted to read that Tony Blair’s Labour Party is losing a member every 20 minutes and will have none left within seven years if that rate continues, according to one of the candidates for the party’s deputy leadership.


Jon Cruddas, the MP for Dagenham, said the party had lost more than 160,000 members between 2000 and 2006. If it continued in the same way, the last member of the party would leave in April 2013, around the end of a fourth term for Labour under its new leadership if it wins the next general election. Labour’s membership peaked at 405,000 after Tony Blair came to power in 1997. The most recent official estimates show it had fallen to 198,025 by the end of last year, but MPs say it is likely to have fallen further since then.

It’s amazing to watch the disintegration of NuLabour, hopelessly corrupted by years in power, out of touch with what people really care about, and proven to be every bit as inept as the Major administration it replaced.

A TSUNAMI OF ILLITERACY….

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 10:03 am

What do you male of the idea that National tests for pupils aged 11 and 14 should be scrapped and replaced with random tests in order to develop "broader skills" in reading, writing and arithmetic, according to a leading left-wing think-tank?

The Government’s outriders in The Institute for Public Policy Research believes that the current testing regime encourages teachers to drill children to pass tests, resulting in a narrow curriculum. It calls instead for a system based on internal teacher assessments, backed by “sample monitoring tests” to ensure that schools continue to be held accountable for their teaching and results.

This is nonsense. Our education system is being ruined by half-witted ideas floated by these leftist ideologues. One only has to consider the shocking fact that one in five boys aged 14 has has the reading age of a seven-year-old and that less than half of 16-year-olds achieve five good GCSEs, including English and maths, to realise the disaster that has befallen our State Education system.

This has happened BECAUSE of the endless interference from Government (of all hues). Teachers should be left alone to teach, academic excellence should be pursued and rewarded and those kids who seek a more vocational future should be facilitated – without dragging standards down. The real illiterates are those radical egalitarians who cannot recognise the folly of their ways.
