IT’S ALL OUR FAULT..REALLY!

By ATWadmin On December 4th, 2006 at 11:38 am

You have to laugh at the dhimmi-bleating from the Government partly funded "DEMOS" think-tank which has cooly decided that Muslims are being driven into the arms of "violent extremists" 9 by official attempts to engage with them after the 7 July bombs. (That would be the July 7 acts of mass murder on the London transport system by..erm..devout Muslims) Yes, their love of Jihad, their pitiful ant-Semitism, their enduring contempt for Britain is…OUR FAULT. Who would have guessed that a left-wing think tank would end up thinking it’s all our fault?

But it gets even better. Get this. The report calls for "community relations to be at the heart of security policy". Oops – there was me thinking that stopping acts of Jihad might have been quite a good heart for security policy – and killing Jihadists would be EVEN better, but Demos has carried out the hard work and they know better. That’s why they conclude that…"The grievances that are felt in some parts of the Muslim community about foreign policy, and especially about Iraq, are pretty cogent and pretty convincing", we know we are in the presence of grateness. 

If only we would consult with Muslims before determining foreign policy, Demos pleads! Oh, and how about making it clear that were it not for Israel’s irritating insistence on the right to existence on Muslims might be a lot less angry. 

WORTH EVERY PENNY?

By ATWadmin On December 4th, 2006 at 10:33 am

Two simple questions for you.

Do you agree with a number of our MP’s who are lobbying for a 66% pay increase in their salary – taking them from a miserable £60,000 to a more attractive £100,000 per annum? Since 1997, MPs’ pay has already risen by 37 per cent – although the Commons sat for a mere 137 days last year. 

The second question is why do you think MP’s would demand such a salary increase? 

FIDDLING INFLATION…….

By ATWadmin On December 4th, 2006 at 9:47 am

I always think that elderly people are the most vulnerable in our society, and nowhere is this vulnerability more acute than in their economic circumstances. So it is saddening, though not surprising, to read today that the cost of living for many British households is up to 4 TIMES the Government’s published rate of inflation.

Millions of families are experiencing inflation far beyond the official rate of 2.4 per cent, new research suggests. Pensioners are the hardest hit, with inflation rates of almost nine per cent, as record gas and electricity bills take a massive slice out of their budgets. The revelation comes only days after the Government said there were no plans this year for extra cash for pensioners’ winter fuel payments.

Now then, ATW has raised this issue before, since it is obvious that this Government, LIKE ALL GOVERNMENTS, cheats with statistics. But what annoys most is the way in which so many elderly citizens are having to endure record high inflation across a range of utilities and this rotten Government pretends all is under control.

THE TROUBLE WITH KOFI……

By ATWadmin On December 4th, 2006 at 9:02 am

apusia2_iraq_un_005jq.jpgI see Kofi Annan has dropped by the BBC as he conducts the latest leg of his "Farewell to bribes" tour 2006 and pronounces that "life for the average Iraqi was now worse than under the regime of Saddam Hussein."

How interesting! I guess that must mean that all those hundreds of thousands of marsh Arabs that Saddam so loved that he drained their homelands so they could starve to death are only FAKING their relief the tyrant is gone! Yes, and all those Kurds against whom he used weapons of mass destruction are only PRETENDING that they are satisfied he is gone. For these "average Iraqis" life is immeasurably better. Kofi knows best, right?

I wonder precisely which "ordinary Iraqis" are now much worse off?

Well, there are the remnants of his tyrannical regime – the former Tikriti mafia that now consist the Saddamite rump- who are far from happy! And then there is Al Queda who are most unhappy about the Great Satan being in one of their lairs.

So I guess Kofi is showing the political left’s idea of "real courage" by speaking up on behalf of Saddam’s spawn and the Jihadist brigades of suicide bombers. And to be fair, that has proven to be his forte! He is the "one true voice" that will speak up on behalf of murderers, tyrants, terrorists, indeed all those who hate liberty and freedom.  Mind you, when it comes to genocide, such as that practised in Darfur, well, as he says himself,  the UN lacks "the will" to do anything about it. In this regard, Kofi’s career is complete. He stood back and watched a mIllion people die in the killing fields of Rwanda – and he has quietly slumbered whilst tens of thousands died in Darfur. What a disgrace this man is.

a proper thug in chief

By ATWadmin On December 4th, 2006 at 8:56 am

Venezuela’s Commie thug-in-chief Hugo Chavez appears to have won his bid for re-election.

Apart from stamping his face all over everything including spaghetti sauce he wasnt averse to stamping his feet over other possible outcomes. Just to be sure and all that, eh!?

"If I am assassinated, there is only one person responsible: the president of the United States," Mr Chavez said during his weekly radio and television show, Hello President. He offered no proof of any conspiracy but said the Cuban president, Fidel Castro, had warned of a possible plot against him last week.

"I will not hide, I will walk in the streets with all of you … but i know i am condemned to death" Mr Chavez told his listeners.

———

Chavez: if the opposition pulls out of the Dec. 3 vote or makes false claims of electoral fraud to the Organization of American States, "I would call a national referendum to have the people decide if I can continue here indefinitely or if I have to go after six years in 2014."

The Database N.H.State is coming, and to a site near you!

By ATWadmin On December 3rd, 2006 at 3:16 pm

Running online? Of course you are, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to read this blog! Satisfied about your preparations and security? Firewall active? Keep your ‘cache’s’ cleaned? History scrubbed? Of course you are! But then that’s because you are responsible for your own protection, otherwise a bunch of clowns might invade your own cyberspace, get full details of all your details, credit cards, purchases, random thoughts and anything else you’ve got stored on your hard drive!

Transfer your mind’s eye to the last time you visited your G.P.! Apart from your own family, there lies the place where just about all your own personal details, history of problems both medical or otherwise, are securely stored! That is what you believe, and that is how it is; but not for much longer!

795151-575384-thumbnail.jpgThe roll-out of the all-encompassing NHS Care Records system is well on the way, even though the hugely-expensive computer sysytems won’t be working for about ten years, (guess who’s paying to fix that little boondoggle?), and they need data to feed the angry jaws of the electronic beast. So all, repeat ALL,  of your most private details will be placed upon a National Database which is said to be for ease of use across the system! Be honest! How many times have you been to visit a strange doctor in another city or town? Never, is the usual answer! But that’s what the system is presumably designed for; or is it?  Once you are on the system, it takes an M.P. raising a debate in Parliament to get off it, especially when the records allege you are a ‘drunk’! Oh, and by the way, all your details, besides being freely available to every Tom, Dick or bloody Harriet, may also be fed to MORI for statistical analysis!

So hop on down to THE BIG OPT OUT,  fill in the details and download the .pdf letter, print it out, tell ALL of your friends, and let’s get Patricia Hewitt up in arms at these pesky people who won’t just shut up and do what they’re told!!!

what they were like

By ATWadmin On December 3rd, 2006 at 12:04 pm

Historians in Poland have discovered the wreckage of a World War II RAF Halifax bomber along with the remains of its British and Canadian crew. The bomber was shot down while dropping supplies and ammunition to the Polish underground during the Warsaw uprising.PL-30858.jpg

Project manager Piotr Sliwowski, who heads the museum’s history departmentMr Sliwowski said:

"These were boys aged 28 or 30. Their remains were for decades in the ground, now they will be able to return to their homelands."

Documents, notes and maps and personal items belonging to the crew, like a folding knife and a well-preserved aviator’s badge, were also discovered.

"It takes you back 62 years and you start thinking, ‘What were they like? What did they look like? Did they have girlfriends?’" Mr Sliwowski said. 

Thats exactly what I was wondering as I read the article. I also considered how young and brave they were and what they sacrificed.

Some things you can’t polish

By ATWadmin On December 3rd, 2006 at 11:57 am

eu-flag.jpgBritain’s Labour government is set to squander millions of pounds on a “rebranding exercise” to brainwash us into loving the EU, according to a leaked Cabinet paper. Ministers will be reprogrammed not to say words or phrases with negative connotations, which strangely enough include the names of all the main institutions of the vile organisation (e.g. the Commission, the "Constitution", the Common Agricultural Policy.)  Instead they will be talking about other, more positive things, which involve Europe but have nothing to do with the Brussels kleptocracy (e.g. The Eurovision Song Contest, UEFA Champions League, holidays in the Med).

Labour’s strategy will be aimed at the “young and educated” (N.B “educated” in today’s Britain doesn’t mean what it once did), and won’t waste time with older citizens or Sun readers, who are not so maleable to their lies, propaganda and spin. As with so much of the Socialist agenda, the aim is divide the population. The choice gets starker every day: will you be a good sheep and think what you’re told to think or are you an incorrigible goat, too old or stupid to see how right our masters are?  Just call me Billy.

 

Taking liberties

By ATWadmin On December 3rd, 2006 at 11:48 am

This is a pretty damning piece on Shami Chakrabarti of Liberty. And deservedly so. Only a few weeks back Liberty hosted an event aimed at discussing ‘freedom of religion’. They shared the event hosting with the Muslim Brotherhood (hat tip Harrys Place), a reactionary fundamentalist organisation diametrically opposed to the very concept they were discussing and like all good modern nutjobs, masquerading behind the concept of human rights to gain an extremist platform. The fact that it was then attended by Labour and Tories is equally damning of them. Surely by now everyone should be aware of a such an organisation, if they are, as Cameron suggested adopting a ‘ much more rigorous approach to combating Islamic fundamentalism’. Its one thing to challenge such people at an event, quite another to host it with them and let them take the lead.

In Liberty’s latest campaign they are fighting to force pub owners in the village of Ruddington in Nottinghamshire to admit a man they have banned for his threatening behaviour towards staff. Liberty believes it breaches human rights regulation.

I agree with the article that the

‘The Pubwatch scheme under which he is excluded is a fine example of community action against antisocial conduct. As such it achieves the utilitarian ideal of the greatest good of the greatest number’.

Plain common sense. There are far more deserving cases to champion. Surely part of the problem is the way groups like Liberty are abusing this legislation and their position more than an issue with the concept of the legislation itself–a huge design in attention seeking by Liberty, dressed up as ‘libertarian’, to justify their existence. Individual rights should be about a balance – increasingly now it is one big joke hijacked by criminals and terrorists.

“The core challenge to democracy since September 11, 2001, has been to achieve proportionality between the competing priorities of individual liberty and public protection. Ms Chakrabarti has come down relentlessly on the quasi-anarchist side of the debate. Her defence of individual rights against collective needs takes the demos out of democracy and leaves her organisation marooned on the extra-parliamentary left of politics”.

Or as Mr Taylor, whose daughter died on July 7 2005, put it to her more succinctly regards her opposition to the 90 day detention proposals: “What about the human rights of my daughter?’”. To which she had no answer.

‘Da Poor Oppressed Ketholics’

By ATWadmin On December 3rd, 2006 at 10:22 am

Cliftonville, a Belfast club supported by the city’s third-class rebel children, loses a match against Glentoran and its supporters take to the streets in a mass display of violence.  It’s the age old syndrome of Ulster: republicans cause violence; the police or army respond appropriately; and another excuse is given to withold support to the legitimate forces of law and order.  Having tried the same old trick countless times since their first foray in Londonderry’s Bogside back in 1969, you’d think they’d have realised the rest of us are now wise to their con-artistry.  Who knows, in thirty years time they could have another dupe like Lord Saville to look into yesterday’s violence in order to satiate their hurt feelings.
