Ignored By The Ignorant

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 1:21 pm

Could you honestly imagine the Americans conveniently forgetting to celebrate the fourth of July?  Most countries show some respect towards the date their nation was created.  We have US Independence Day, Australia Day, Norway National Day on the 17th of May, etc.  Even the internationally illegitimate Northern Cyprus has a ‘national day’.  It just happens to be on my birthday – November 15th.

Irrespective of whether the birth of a nation arose from independence, union or from a creation of international law, it is important to remember the occasion – not by deifying terrorists like the Irish did earlier this year, but by promoting the national character and its achievements since that founding moment.  The birth of this United Kingdom took place on January 16th 1707, when the Union of England and Scotland came into being.  Wales had never been a nation in its own right and had never possessed a parliament of its own.  Thus, the amalgamation of England and Wales in 1536 is not usually regarded as the birth of the United Kingdom.  The lynchpin of the Union came almost 300 years ago, only to be complimented by the addition of Ireland 95 years later.

A Union of the Crowns had existed between the two countries since 1603.  Attempts had been made to unite England and Scotland on three previous occasions.  This time, the Union had the backing of both seats of government (even if for differing reasons).  What is perhaps telling was the desire for Union amongst the Scottish political class stemming from a desire to rid the country of a financial disaster created by the Darien scheme.  No other union between two former states anywhere in the world has been as successful as that between ourselves and the Scots.  Yugoslavia, Indonesia, the USSR, India and the island of Ireland are all evidence of the spectacular failures in the drive to create nations on false footings.  What these have in common is the fragmentation that took place because the fundamentals necessary to keep any territory constitutionally united were, and are, just not there.

By contrast, not only has the Union created and interdependent and interwoven mosaic of politics, economics, culture and institutional loyalty, it also developed the engine by which the British Empire was built.  Yet what are the ruling classes promising by way of a tercentennial celebration?  Nothing!  We will be ‘honoured’ by a commemorative £2 coin.  A convenient excuse peddled by spin doctors will be the likelihood of Scottish people associating the Act of Union with a discredited Scottish Labour Party, and react accordingly.  What rot!  Why couldn’t the government set up an independent organisation designed to promote the event?

Elementary dear folks!  This is a government embarrassed by our history.  Oh yes it wants to celebrate Britain’s role in the ‘abolition of slavery’, when in fact the UK only took the initial steps (admirable though they were) to end slavery as a practice of Western powers.  Slavery still continues today in many of the countries and regions where it was founded.  But Lefties aren’t listening to the facts.  For them, Britain is the be-all and end-all of historical negativity: a country they plan to see suffer indefinitely for its ‘historical wrongs’ as they use its institutions and very society as a platform of empowerment for one set of groups least able to identify with it, and for another set least prepared to contribute to its economic aggrandisement.

It may seem far-fetched.  However, I believe the curse of anti-Britishness pervades the mind of the most Blairite minister every bit as much as it does the likes of Galloway and Benn.  Alas, they are in the Establishment ascendancy.  For the Left we must bow the knee to ‘Muslimness, ethnicness and gayness’, but woe betide any of us who profess to take pride in the traditional ideas of ‘Britishness‘.

NO CLASS….

Showing a complete lack of class, the Incoming Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid will miss the state funeral for former President Gerald Ford at the Capitol Rotunda on Saturday night, opting instead to lead a delegation to South America with an expected stop at the Machu Picchu Inca ruins. 

Here’s another example of his class..

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said on ‘FOX News Sunday’ that this Republican-led Congress is "the most corrupt in history." He went on to distance himself from lobbyist Jack Abramoff who is being investigated for illegal payoffs. "Don’t lump me in with Jack Abramoff. This is a Republican scandal," he said, and was adamant that he never received bribes from Abramoff. However, Reid, like many Democrats and Republicans, has received campaign contributions from Abramoff clients.  "America can do better than what we’ve done," said Reid. "The most corrupt Congress in the history of the country. We have such significant problems with what’s going on in this country."

Harry. erm, somehow, forgot to mention that he had accepted $66,000 From Abramoff.

What a guy – and he is the LEADER of the Senate Majority. God help America with a bozo like this in power.

HYPOCRITES….

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 1:03 pm

Did you read that Labour Chairperson, the excremental Hazel Blears, has been out on the demo line protesting in her constituency  in Salford, Greater Manchester, where the local hospital is to partially close as part of the controversial NHS shake-up throughout the country.

And who is behind this shake-up? That’s right, the Labour Government in which Ms Blears plays such a prominent part!

So, just to repeat, the Labour Chairperson, the intrepid Ms Blears, is keen to be photographed opposing Labour policy in motion! This follows the Labour Home Secretary John Reid’s presence at protests against hospital cuts in his Airdrie and Shotts constituency in April!

Perhaps Labour has decided that the Conservatives are such a poor opposition that they may as well oppose themselves? This lot in power are SO cynical, so calculating, that they are quite happy to be seen opposing the very policies they introduce!

JIHAD ON THE RUN…

By ATWadmin On December 28th, 2006 at 10:48 am

Delighted to see that the Islamist forces in Somalia have surrendered control of the capital Mogadishu to pro-government forces backed by Ethiopia!

As fierce fighting in the African nation entered its sixth day, a senior Islamist leader said Islamist troops had withdrawn from the capital. Sheikh Sharif Ahmed said that the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) forces remained united, and the retreat was a change of tactics in its war against the internationally recognised government and its Ethiopian allies. Sure, we believe him, right?

Following the announcement this morning, a government spokesman issued a triumphant statement, saying state troops would be in control of the capital within the next few hours. "The Islamic courts leaders have dispersed in thin air," Abdirahman Dinari told reporters, adding that the Islamist leaders had fled to the southern port of Kismayu.

Once again we see that the mighty forces of militant Islam are little more than girly-men when it comes to real fighting. Sure, they know how to decapitate a defenceless woman, or cut the throat of a helpless Air Stewardess, or detonate themselves at a Wedding Party – but when it comes to standing toe to toe with an opponent, they scarper. What cowards they are. 

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.
