Suits you!

brownLm1.JPGThe Government’s ID card scheme plans have been attacked from all sides for being on the one hand an outrageous violation of our rights as free citizens by an overbearing, authoritarian state, and on the other hand as a huge waste of our money.

Much as the first is their intention, and the second is not really a problem for them, as the contracts will be going to “friendly” companies, who in turn will no doubt remember their benefactors kindly, one avenue of finance is sure to be pursued with vigour – fines.

Whereas many continentals can’t see what the fuss is about when anglo-saxon libertarians start foaming at the mouth over ID cards and their relationship to 1984 and the ’60s cult series “The Prisoner”, they may change their minds if they knew the depth of knowledge our dear leaders intend to collect on us, and the devilishly ways they will find to fleece us for any mistake or omission in their information, and as with so many of this Government’s stealth taxes posing as fines, you will be GUILTY because they say so.

 

Recently our “PM- in-waiting” Gordon Brown was described as “Stalinist” by the ex- top civil servant Lord Turnbull. For some in Labour, that passes as a compliment.

 

It’s the result that counts

healy2.jpgOK. Northern Ireland didn’t play well against Liechtenstein and my heart was in my month on a number of occasions but the record books will record that we stuffed them.

It took a bit longer for us to score than I expected but we still got four goals(three of them from the boot of the gentleman in the picture) and three points.

On a more depressing note, the DUP today agreed to share power with the murderous enemies of Ulster and it doesn’t matter how they try to spin it.

Sinn Fein/IRA are terrorists today. They will be terrorist on Monday. They will be terrorists two months from now.

In politics, as in football, it’s the ultimate result that counts.

NANCY AND SEDITION….

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 9:00 pm

ATW regular Ernest Young writes…

"I noticed a small item regarding desertions from the US military. Quoted from the NYT….

"Military desertions during the Iraq War period remain below peacetime levels. Desertions rates actually jumped  in 2001, with nearly 1,000 more soldiers deserting when all we were doing was invading Afghanistan and hunting for Osama bin Laden, than since we opened the second GWOT front in Iraq, when desertions dropped. Desertion rates during Vietnam Redux nowhere near desertion rates during Classic Vietnam.  The 2006 increase mentioned above is still many hundreds below the popular war period of 2001 and 2002."

 

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, said she was not alarmed by the number of Army Desertions. "When Democrats say ˜We support the troops", Representative Pelosi -(Democrat House Leader), said, "These are the troops we’re talking about."

Now I am all for so-called ‘free speech’, but surely such remarks, especially from someone in Pelosi’s position, must amount to outright sedition and treason. This from a woman who voted in support for the war – when it suited her political convenience!  Sadly, this behaviour has to be expected from today’s Democrat Party, they have sacrificed any pretense of honesty or integrity – that they would betray their country for no other reason than spite of an individual, seems utterly reprehensible…"

The Leopard Quietly Grows His Spots Back

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 8:06 pm

Strange as it might seem for my first ATW post, it is a Guardian article I wish to highlight for all to peruse. It concerns the plight of the opposition parties in Russia, deepened further by Putin’s lackeys in the Supreme Court outlawing the small Republican Party in a move which reduces the official opposition to just three parties, former Chess champion Gary Kasparov’s United Civil Front, the National Bolsheviks, and the Popular Democratic Union.

Those of us with long memories remember all the Russian technology found within Iraq during the first Gulf War, and the Russian listening posts which were picked up by radio but never positively identified. Russia of course has a long history of providing weapons and aid to Arab States, even to the point of threatening military intervention during Arab-Israeli conflicts should Israel actually launch full-scale retalitaory invasions having defeated the Arab armies. Even today it was one of the first nations to recognise the Hamas terror government, indicating its continued willingness to maintain ties with the West’s enemies in the Middle East. As the USSR it used proxies throughout the world to attempt to destabilise and stretch the West militarily, but was always to some extent hampered in this goal by having its own military capability hamstrung by the need to internally administer such vast tracts of territory, many of them containing ethnically homogenous population groups which were at best uncooperative and even at times downright rebellious.

 Now of course the new Russia is unburdened by many of those unruly population groups, and is quietly but carefully rebuilding the  previously rotting infrastructure of its military. It has become aware that it can wield huge political power against Europe by use of energy supplies and of course by the EU’s eternal willingness to barter massive bargaining chips away for the sake of ‘goodwill’ when it comes to the democratic aspirations of its nominal client governments such as that of Belarus.

 It was just a few days ago that somebody chastised Tom Tyler on an ATW thread for ‘missing the fall of Communism’. Well, Communism may have fallen, but its traditions and (for the ‘ethnic Russians’) legacy of powerseeking definitely lives on. Welded into one leaner state, with a resurgent military and iron-hard dictatorial power, the ‘new Russia’ is it seems beginning to turn back into an entity the West should once again learn to regard with the utmost caution.

 

BROWN SLUMPS!

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 12:21 pm

I was pleased to read that Gordon Brown’s public standing as the likely next prime minister has fallen sharply, according to a new poll. The Populus poll, undertaken on Wednesday evening and Thursday as voters digested the Budget measures, shows that more than twice as many people think that they will pay higher rather than lower taxes than before.

I wonder if all those Labour MP’s who greeted Brown’s Budget with cheers the other day are still cheering?

KIDNAPPED SAILORS UPDATE – BRITISH GOVERNMENT NOW “QUITE CROSS”

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 11:03 am

Following the abduction of 15 British sailors by Iran, British Foreign Secretary Margaret a Beckett called in the Iranian ambassador in London to make it clear that the UK was not entirely happy with this and that it would be nice if they might find a way to release the sailors. So –  what does Iran do? Yip – moves them to Tehran, so much safer!

The British sailors are to be "interrogated" say Iranian news agencies. Looks like Beckett has shown her true mettle. Once we had an Iron Lady, now we have a Jelly Baby.

These sailors are being used as pawns by a belligerent Iranian regime, confident the gutless West will do nothing of consequence. I’m sure it is also linked to the UN vote on Monday regarding sanctions against Iran. Look upon it as a literal shot across the bows! My advice remains clear; a quick call to Ahmadinejad and the clear threat of massive military intervention to get our boys(and one girl) back. That’s the language that Iran understands – everything else is just hot air.

DEMOCRATS CHALK UP VICTORY FOR MILITANT ISLAM!

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 10:46 am

white_flag.jpgI’m beginning to catch up on stuff now that I am back at ATW central and I really couldn’t let this one pass without comment! It seems that the naturally irresponsibility of the MODERN Democrat Party has won through, hence the stupendous decision in the House to vote for a withdrawal of US troops by September next year – thus meeting a key Al Qu’eda demand. Very impressive.


Now let me say this – there are Democrat supporters who visit this site and with whom I can find much commonality of thought and they strike me as honourable folks who want to do that which is right. But guys, the political leadership of your Party as exemplified by Pelosi is nothing less than uber-liberal moonbattery! The modern Democrat Party has no will to win a war – no guts for the fight – all it can do is carp and criticise and then – when push comes to shove – raise a white flag and declare this a triumph. One final thought; what message do you think this vote sends to the Islamofascists? Are they winning, or are we?

VAT IN THE MOST UNLIKELY PLACES!

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 10:29 am

rhinosES_228x464.jpgValue Added Tax (VAT) is a most loathsome concept. As far as I am concerned it is just another means for Government to impose additional taxation burden  on the  population, But it is here now and we all must pay it. Except not quite all of us – and this is where lap-dancers come into the picture. It seems that the babes who writhe around the poles have been exempt from paying this tax – until now.

The taxman can now take a bite out of lapdancers’ earnings after a High Court judge ruled today that the clubs where they perform are not liable for VAT. Spearmint Rhino Ventures, which operates a chain of ‘gentleman’s clubs’, won its case that the dancer should pay VAT out of money she takes from her "customers". The clubs were appealing against an earlier VAT tribunal decision which found Spearmint Rhino was liable for the tax. Mr Justice Mann today ruled an economic agreement was negotiated directly between the customer and the performer for private dances – usually £10 clothed and £20 nude, or for a £250 “sit down” where the dancer socialises with the customer for a full hour. He ruled that HM Revenue’s argument that the services were supplied by the club was wrong.

So, there you go. The tendrils of Government taxation really DO reach everywhere! Isn’t that comforting?

The pages should still be blank!

reality eu flag.jpgWe were told, during a broadcast trailer during the ‘Today’ programme, about the very murky beginnings of the European Economic Community, known by all these days as the European Union. The reporter came up with a few interviews which may prove revealing of the founders’ intentions; as the word given out to all was that the Community was nothing more than a Trading bloc, but the reality was that it was, and always has been a political entity. The end goal of that entity was simply the formation of a supra-national Federal State. That was why the entire negotiation process was conducted in secret! That was why the British government was never invited, because the plotters knew that we would expose the scam for what it was, and they also knew that we would never keep their slimy secret under wraps!

The French too were distrusted, mainly because the planners knew that France was tottering on the verge of anarchy, and De Gaulle was expected back in power, and they all knew what he thought of the E.E.C. plans, so they had to really hurry things along and get France signed up before the General returned to save his beloved France.

An indication of how things were both achieved and done is the signing ceremony in the Capitoline building in Rome. The six country’s leaders, all dressed in either morning dress or formal frock coats, signed the original Treaty of Rome, but it was not until this morning that the reporter revealed that the document they signed was blank, except for the title page and the signature page! Everything else was blank, because the Italian printers were on holiday, or on strike, and nothing was finished! That, my friends, was the start line for the rule of the crowd of arrogant bastards who run the 60,000,00 who live in this country by decree, as well as 300,000,000 others in this benighted European Union!

CHAINED IN THE PAST…

By ATWadmin On March 24th, 2007 at 9:51 am

_42722721_slave203.jpgAnd so, today sees a great gathering of liberal self-loathers and apologists in London, all there to mark the 200th anniversary of Britain’s abolition of the slave trade. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York -Rowan Williams and  John Sentamu ( one white, one black, a theological Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder team -up if you like) – will be joined by foreign dignitaries and leaders of other churches for the Walk of Witness. Dr Williams said it was a way Anglicans could try to heal "historic injustices inflicted in the name of the Church".   Pass the sickbag!

I’m sorry but these guys should keep on walking when they get to London, sashay down to Gatwick Airport(Best leave the chains behind before going through security!) and catch a flight to the likes of Chad, Mauratania or the Sudan – countries in which slavery is still flourishing and all under the malign gaze of Islam. Try walking through those countries guys and we can then share your pain.  It’s all very well to drone on about past sins, real or imagined, how about dealing with current reality? Shouldn’t Africa be making reparations to..erm..Africans for its own centuries old exploitation of human beings. I do agree that efforts of Wilberforce were honourable and inspiring but what have we learned? Just to say sorry is not enough. In fact, it’s not even relevant.
