Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. My kids are taking their Mum away for the day as a special treat, so I won’t be back at ATW central until Monday! Hope all have a nice day tomorrow.

I love this rollicking version of the "Irish Rover" by The Dubliners and the Pogues. Ronny Drew is a most excellent singer – a real star! To all our (many) Irish readers, have a great day and make sure you drown that shamrock!!!

Did you pick up on the news story about the latest homicide-bombing in Iraq?  In Falluja, that hell-hole west of Baghdad, suicide bombers driving tankers filled with chlorine targeted two separate locations. Most of the victims were from the first attack at the entrance to a housing estate. The injured included at least 27 children.

What sort of MONSTERS kill in this predetermined indiscriminate manner? What sort of PERVERSE death cult of a religion gives comfort to them, describing these killers as Shahids? (martyrs) Where is the outrage from the media, from our politicians and from "moderate" Muslims at this endless tide of detonating Islamists? It seems that Islam’s primary contribution to 21st century civilisation is men and women wrapping explosives around themselves and slaughtering at random.  Mind you, Michael Moore – that doyen of the left – compares these exploding scum to Minutemen and George Galloway – the shining light in leftist British politics – calls Martyrs. Not so. They are cruel inhuman murderers and Islam should be absolutely ashamed on them.

The University of Leeds has has cancelled a lecture on “Islamic anti-Semitism” by a German academic. Matthias Köntzel arrived at the university yesterday morning to begin a three-day programme of lectures and seminars, but was told that it had been called off on “security grounds”.

Dr Köntzel, a political scientist who has lectured around the world on the antiSemitic ideology of Islamist groups, said that he was “outraged” that his meetings had been cancelled and had yet to receive an explanation. NOW – CAN YOU GUESS WHAT PROMPTED THE MOVE BY THE UNIVERSITY?

It acted after complaints from Muslim students. What a gutless crowd of dhimmis these academics are. The "offended" Muslim students should have been told to take a hike.

Wonder what you make of the news that the children of parents who themselves are graduates may be discriminated against when they apply for a place at University?

Education chiefs today admitted that children whose parents were graduates could be discriminated against under new university admission rules. For the first time, would-be students will be asked if their mother or father went to university and their answer recorded as part of the admissions process. Anthony McClaren, chief executive of the university admissions body Ucas, confirmed that the information may be used by some colleges and universities to help teenagers who are the first in their families to go on to higher education.

This reeks of continued social-engineering by the hateful leftists in power – this time punishing the children of those who have already gained a tertiary education.

Interesting to read that two leading UK climate researchers have criticised those among their peers who they say are "overplaying" the global warming message. Professors Paul Hardaker and Chris Collier, both Royal Meteorological Society figures, are voicing their concern at a conference in Oxford. They say some researchers make claims about possible future impacts that cannot be justified by the science. The pair believe this damages the credibility of all climate scientists. They think catastrophism and the "Hollywoodisation" of weather and climate only work to create confusion in the public mind.

Quick – someone contact Al Gore – heresy!!!

So you are finished work, and running late; you drop into the local convenience store to pick up some instant buys, like milk, bread and bacon. You stand in line at the check-out and the cashier, who happens to be wearing full head scarf like in the Muslim racket, insists that YOU scan the BACON because like, it’s not only bad for you, but it’s UNCLEAN! At least in her religion it’s unclean, and that’s what counts! So a clone cashier has to be located, and the transfer happens, because the management has to be sympathetic to thr religious needs of a minority ethnic and religious grouping, just the same as say, the Jewish people are with travelling long distances on the Sabbath!

This from the same city where a bunch of taxi-driver crunchies decided it was against their religious beliefs to pick up airport passengers who were carrying amounts of sinful, wait for it, BOOZE!

Some people see the Muslims’ actions as evidence of an unwillingness to adapt to the American workplace, and to the society as a whole.

"It’s about one ethnic group imposing its own beliefs on the rest of us," said Manny Laureano, 51, of Plymouth, who plays trumpet for the Minnesota Orchestra. "It goes against the whole idea of this country as different groups of people who came together to create a single culture."

You can say that again; and again, and again!

Didn’t want to miss the chance to share this song….an otherworldly vocal and a lovely lyric..

Ulster’s not for sale

Well that may have been the case a few years back but now the going rate appears to be about £1 billion.

Given what Unionist leaders are saying at the moment one could be forgiven for thinking that the only thing they are worried about is obtaining as much money from the government as possible.

And I for one believe that Mr Blair is prepared to dish out a considerable amount of cash. He would do anything to get Sinn Fein/IRA and the DUP in government together.

How our “wonderful” devolved government will handle the cash remains to be seen. The fact the DUP look set to take the finance ministry (leaving the education portfolio for their coalition partners Sinn Fein/IRA) doesn’t fill me with confidence about our future.

Let’s just hope they are better economists than negotiators.

Basic democratic norms are to be subverted because the government is prepared to doe out money to our begging politicians.

Unionist leaders are prepared to accept an unrepentant IRA leader as joint First Minister and one of his friends as education minister.

And the Unionist electorate appear to be willing to swallow this poisonous form of government in order to avoid water rates.

Ulster, it seems, CAN be brought.

We may not be charged for water but I fear that Unionism will pay a terrible price in the long run.
