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.

THE GREATEST BRITON….

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 9:47 am

I see there’s a bit of a debate going on as to who should be included in a list of "the greatest Britons", with the Conservative Party drawing up a list that includes the likes of Alfred the Great, Simon de Montfort, Millicent Fawcett, Aneurin Bevan. (Hopeless  choices) From my perspective truly great Britons would include Oliver Cromwell, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Thomas Cranmer, Edward de Vere, Elizabeth 1st.

GAY RIGHTS COME OUT ON TOP…..

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 9:27 am

Did you see that UK businesses have been warned by a Government watchdog they must individually quiz every member of staff on gay rights – or risk being sued for discrimination?


Industrial relations quango Acas has spent thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money drawing up a detailed 18-question test to establish whether workers are being unfair to any homosexual colleagues.


Employers are advised to use the so-called ‘audit tool’ on all staff, then check their answers against a special score sheet to ensure staff do not have a bad attitude. A poor score earns a ‘STOP’ warning, which, according to Acas, means the company is at risk of being sued for discrimination. Questions range from knowing how many gays live in the UK, to whether the business displays a ‘rainbow flag’ – a symbol of homosexual rights – on the premises.


The relentless advance of the militant gay agenda, especially in the State sector, under the guise of “equality” is one of the most sickening features of modern life. I see no reason why the tender sensitivities of gay people have to be given such priority and have so much taxpayer cash lavished on them. I oppose ALL discrimination in the work place but I sure as hell do not need those useless bozos in Acas quangoland to tell me how to do it. 


Most gay people are sensible enough to KEEP their sex lives OUT of their place of work, as indeed do most heterosexual people. Perhaps Acas needs to draw up another 18 question “audit” questionnaire to establish if gay people are being unfair to heterosexual work colleagues?

FORD DEAD

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 9:14 am

I was sorry to hear that Gerald Ford, the former US President, had died. He was age 93 – so a fair old innings I guess. I can’t say that I was much of a fan but in fairness to Ford, political giants like Ronald Reagan, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld all moved up the political ladder during his short period in power and he DID have the grace to pardon Richard Nixon. 

JUST HANGING AROUND……

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 9:00 am

795151-536769-thumbnail.jpgSo, Saddam is to hang within a month following the rejection of an appeal against his death sentence. 

Good.

I know it is a harsh thing to welcome the imminent death of any person, no matter how evil, but Saddam dead is a better proposition than Saddam alive. I imagine the MSM will have a international day of mourning when this monster swings – but for those hundreds of thousands of families whose next-of-kin he ordered slaughtered, justice will be done and seen to be done. And THAT is the point – in this morally relativist universe, justice DOES need to be seen to be done.

That is why, for example, I would like to see mass murderers like the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, hanged. Indeed it would also be good if the terrorist godfathers who have commanded the IRA for decades, and whose indentities are well known, were also hanged by the neck. As a society, we have become soft, unable to face up to the fact that those who deliberately take life, forfeit their life. In exchange for our squeamishness, we allow far too many killers to get away with their dark deeds. Saddam will not be quite so lucky.

contest won, not many entries!

By ATWadmin On December 27th, 2006 at 8:26 am

‘TWAS THE NIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS.


Underwhelmed as I was by the tiny avalanche of entries for my second contest with ATW, I am only left with the result, with David Vance a surprise winner by a short sentence from Aileen, who gained an honourable second place.

A special mention must be made with Madradin Ruad’s requirement that:-

Smoking will be reinstated as a national sport. and
Chocolate will be declared a vegetable and a human right.

 Thank you, and a very good weekend to you all!

PROOF OF THE STEALTH TAXES….

By ATWadmin On December 26th, 2006 at 11:46 am

brownPA250906_228x242.jpgDid you read that hard-pressed families have been forced to hand over almost £120,000 in tax to Gordon Brown since Labour came to power in 1997? The eye-watering sum – which is the equivalent of working solely for the Treasury for four years – is enough to pay for a four-bedroom holiday home in the Dordogne, a new Aston Martin Vanquish sports car or five years of Eton school fees.

The Office for National Statistics has found that £70,000 of the money has been raised through direct taxes – such as income tax, national insurance and council tax. But the remaining £50,000 has been raised through indirect taxes – often dubbed ‘stealth’ taxes – such as vehicle excise duty, stamp duty and the TV licence fee.

So around 40% of the taxes Brown has taken have come on the form of stealth taxes, making Britain one of the most heavily taxed countries in the West.

The figures also reveal that pensioners have been badly hit with the average retired household surrendering over £42,000 in taxes since 1997 – even although they are no longer earning. This is also disgraceful. But WHY do people continue to vote for a Government intent on stealing our wealth? Have we become stupified by Brown’s stealth taxation?
