BLACKENING THE BLACKS…?

By ATWadmin On November 7th, 2006 at 10:12 am

Let’s be clear at the start of this that many individuals from Britain’s black population have made tremendous contributions to our society across a wide range of disciplines and many are looked up to as role models. 


So I was very surprised to hear a so-called spokeman for the “Black community” on Radio 5 this morning claiming that unemployment amongst the black population has never stopped rising, that the drug culture which infests some black areas is the direct consequence of (White)celebrities, models, popstars etc seeking recreational drugs from dealers within these areas, and that many young black people are attracted to drug dealing when they see the affluent lifestyles afforded to those who deal in this illicit trade.


I’m sorry, but this is almost complete denial of reality. Of course some of those with money will seek out their recreational drugs from wherever they can get it. The best way of dealing with that is by a tough crackdown on both dealers and those who buy from them however. But surely it is patronising beyond belief to suggest that black people just can’t find employment at a time when Government tells us we need to have hundreds of thousands of immigrants coming into this country to meet employment needs and have no moral compass to direct them away from the sheer evil of drugs.


And when we’re at it – what are these “spokesmen” for the black community doing to highlight the evil of drug dealers in their “own” community?


This guy was pleading victimhood. He was patronising British black people – but because he himself is black, and because the BBC desperately wants to belief in institutional racism – he got a sympathetic ear. He didn’t deserve it.

WHY THE DEATH PENALTY IS JUST…!

By ATWadmin On November 7th, 2006 at 9:02 am

795151-539339-thumbnail.jpgOK – with the genocidal tyrant Saddam Hussein now facing execution, the topic of capital punishment has once more come to the fore.  As you know, I fully support capital punishment though I understand  others do not and I respect their point of view. My primary reason for supporting it is Biblical, and I am much obliged to my friend  Peter C Glover, for providing us with what I believe to be the BEST case for the death penalty…. from a Biblical perspective. Those who do not care for the Bible may not get a lot from this, those who do put their faith in the Bible may find Peter’s analysis both comprehensive and compelling…

I should also add that Peter has collated his thoughts on this along with several other major issues in his book "The Politics of Faith"…it’s a great read and I recommend it to all discerning ATW readers. Here’s an excerpt from Peter’s article…

"Saddam and the Biblical (Judeo-Christian) case for the death penalty"

So Saddam has been convicted and sentenced – to death. Immediately, the Western liberal human rights lobbies have galvanized themselves to try to prevent it. They know only too well that if the case for anyone – even a mass murdering tyrant  – can be proved reasonable and right morally, then the case for the death penalty per se is also made out. But I have found the human rights lobbies together with woolly-minded liberal Christians to be less than logical when confronted by pure reason and the Word of God itself.

That’s why they do their level best to avoid being confronted by cogent argument.

Though I am more than prepared to argue the case for the death penalty from pure reason – as I have in my book The Politics of Faith that is not my focus here. I have been asked rather to focus squarely on the biblical teaching on the subject and will confine my case to it. And what our review will plainly reveal is that the Bible, New and Old Testament, is unequivocal on the subject: the Bible not only teaches the case for the death penalty but shows that the state which carries executes for murder is actually doing God’s will. So let us straight away turn to the biblical evidence.

Read the rest here.

If you want to pursue this issue with Peter, feel free to pop over to his place, I just know that he loves liberals…!

AN OLYMPIC SIZED TAX BILL!

By ATWadmin On November 7th, 2006 at 8:43 am

Following on from Mike’s post yesterday concerning the chaos and incompetency that lies (and lies) behind the London 2012 Olympics, comes the news that Organisers of the 2012 London Olympic Games have discovered they may be facing a huge additional tax bill.  Tory Olympic spokesman Hugh Robertson said the government had assured him the £2.38bn cost of construction sites would not be subject to VAT. But the Treasury is demanding the tax, and has said European regulations state it cannot be seen to be supporting the organisers of the event.

This is but the beginning. Expect to see the costs of this enterprise spiral out of all control.

“now this won’t hurt at all!”

By ATWadmin On November 7th, 2006 at 8:38 am

Heard the new, caring, Gordon Brown illustrate how he’s going to spend lots more of our money on the prompt immunisation of kids worldwide who would otherwise go without! Now, in principle, there’s nothing wrong with the idea that mass immunisation is a ‘good thing’, but, (and there’s always a but;) the devil is in the detail! Firstly, why is it always down to the long-bled and -suffering taxpayers of the U.K. who have to fund most of this burden on ‘hire-purchase’? Then, doesn’t the whole idea of this practice, good though it may be, then allow the feckless Governments in whose countries these alleged kids live to further spend their own money on nice guns, or palaces, or German cars, or other goodies, instead of basic health care for their own citizens?

Further to those queries being resolved, we now come to the thorny issue of what type of immunisation is to be funded? I for one tend to distrust anyone who states, "Trust me, we know what we’re doing" when it comes to matters medical! Go back a year or two, to the rows around the efficacy of the ‘MMR’ or Measles, Mumps and Rubella jab, and whether there was a link between massive assaults on a very young person’s immune systems; and the onset of Autism in numbers of those same children! Whereas the ‘single’ jab, whereby the proven technology of a single dose against a single disease or infexction has been used for many years without problem! Now far be it from me to query those experts who claim that all is well with the ‘MMR’ routine, but there’s an awful lot of cash heading the way of pharmaceutical companies who are pushing the ‘MMR’ route, bhecause they after all, have done their research and produced these ‘wonder’ medications, and we all know that pharmaceutical companies and chemists always tell the truth!

VLOGGING SADDAM!!

Lower than the belly of a newt

By ATWadmin On November 6th, 2006 at 3:27 pm

newt.jpgRecently I suggested the pitiful Mayor of London should seek medical attention for his unravelling mind amongst his ideological buddies in Cuba (famous for their Potemkin Village Health Service).


Sure enough, the Dear Leader has turned up in Cuba and joined in the ritual denunciation of the USA and lavished praise on Castro, under whom Cuba has “been able to give its people the best standard of health care, brilliant education” etc. Perhaps he agrees with George “Tiddles” Galloway, that Cuba has a different and superior form of democracy – indeed one where the choice is not so much between two candidates but between silence on one hand and incarceration and torture on the other. No problem for Maoist Livingstone, a red star on the uniform works the same magic as the “American Express” card used to do in the advert.


Like many of his vile confederateson the Reactionary Left, Livingstone has become a fully-signed up member of the environmental lobby, and would restrict the common folk from air travel for the greater good, safe in the knowledge that VIPs like him will still be able to swan around the World at tax-payers expense. Next stop Venezuela.

rings alight.jpegIn six years’ time, the name of Jack Lemley will be spoken with bated breath. They will be saying "We should really have listened to Jack!"

Jack who?

That’s right, Jack Lemley! He is the head of Lemley International, an engineering and consulting company based in Boise, Idaho. He is seventy-seven years old, and is the first senior person to have resigned from the Olympic Delivery Agency.

As can be seen from a brief survey of the Wikipedia page, he is massively qualified and extremely-well respected, by ENGINEERS! (my capitals). He ran, amongst other projects, the Channel Tunnel project. If one discounts the financial catastrophe which is EuroTunnel: the engineering bit; the trains, the links, the infrastructure, the initial tunnelling with boring machines, everything works! So the man knows of that which he talks about!

In a little-noticed item, his resignation from the 2012 Olympic Delivery Agency brought no comment from insiders, but a fortnight later, the comments from this forthright individual, which included such gems as " A huge amount of local politics had made the job intolerable." and "I went there to build things, not to sit and talk about it, so I felt it best to leave the post and come home," have brought fevered responses from Sports Minister Caborn and Labour MP Derek Wyatt, who was quoted as stating; "Original costs spell ‘x’ and come out as a ‘y’. I think Mr Lemley was out of his depth.". This last from an M.P. whose previous jobs include ‘history teacher’, ‘journalist’ and ‘publisher’, which record of course gives him a supreme advantage in commenting upon the life and knowledge of a really good Engineer!

The chickens are starting to come home to roost, and the truly ludicrous estimates for cleaning the site, apart from construction, are leaping ever higher, as are the timescales for that same construction. Remember how the Greeks scraped home before the start of their Games? That’s ‘gonna be chickenfeed compared with the boondoggle we have been landed with in Stratford!

“Relationship Problems”

By ATWadmin On November 6th, 2006 at 11:55 am

Natashia Jackman was stabbed in the eye at her school, Collingwood Colllege in Camberley, Surrey. During a catalogue of abuse including being knocked unconscious in class and cumulating in the stabbing incident, the school did next to nothing, in fact they made her feel that she was to blame. According to her father “it was as if the school was saying, ‘We don’t want to admit there’s a problem with bullying in our school.” Headmaster, Jerry Oddie, described the incident as "isolated". He told reporters: "Natashia has had relationship problems in the time that she’s been with us.”


In the school’s newsletter of December 2005 is an article on “National Anti-Bullying Week

“There have been several initiatives and activities around College, in order to raise awareness of this very important topic. These include: Special talks in assemblies about what can constitute bullying, and what students can do about it … a poster competition … a wristband campaign to raise awareness of the subject … the launch of the new Peer Counsellor system … Remember, if you know or suspect that someone may be being bullied, doing the right thing involves telling someone about it.

Empty, hollow words for Natashia. Much as children do not appreciate being disciplined, it is the children who suffer when that discipline is neglected and, as nature abhors a vacuum, the place of the stern teacher is taken by the school bully. Civilised behaviour is not the default setting, it must be learned, inculcated and enforced, otherwise you fall back to the law of the jungle.

HAS SADDAM HAD A FAIR TRIAL?

By ATWadmin On November 6th, 2006 at 11:46 am

You can listen to my contribution to the NOLAN SHOW by clicking on the LISTEN AGAIN tab and then going fast forward one hour or so until just after the 10am news headlines. The BBC got a member of Saddam’s legal defence team – from Londonderry – on the programme to weep and wail that poor Saddam has been stitched up by the bad Americans and his "human rights" had been infringed.  Never mind stitched – strung up is more like it. Liberals beware.

A Slow Bus to South Armagh

By ATWadmin On November 6th, 2006 at 9:55 am

It is an area of Northern Ireland I heartily recommend visiting for those who are deluded into believing the IRA and its supporters were the oppressed masses of the Troubles.  I am talking about South Armagh, a demographic stain on the Queen’s Realm.  Packed to the rafters with the big-wigs of the Provisional IRA and dotted with villages bursting at the seams with the scum who vote for them.

To some outsiders, news footage down the years can deter some from driving around the myriad of small roads that criss-cross this area of the United Kingdom.  However, the scenery is wonderful (nature is not responsible for the dross who live on it).  I had a venture through there back in 2001.  One of the biggest eye-openers is the sheer size of the rural houses in the area.  Each one looks like a cross between Southfork and Falcon Crest.  How can an area officially classed as deprived be sprinkled with some of the largest dwellings you’re likely to find outside London’s stockbroker belt?  It is because first impressions don’t do an area justice.  How many tourists have crossed South Armagh and associated the large mansions as products of an honest day’s labour?  Most I would guess.  To find out what this hidden corner of the Union is actually like, it is best to take a trip with the leader of victims’ group FAIR, Willie Frazer.

Frazer is, in my view, a bit of an eccentric character.  At the same time, he is also an honest and decent man who knows more about the calibre of the denizens of South Armagh than most.  He should do given that several members of his family were killed in cold blood by the terrorists lauded in Crossmaglen and the surrounding district by illegal monuments.  Suzanne Breen took a trip with Frazer on his South Armagh tour.  Reading her resulting article is somewhat breathtaking.  Frazer seems to know the background of each area he pauses at, and each inhabitant who swaggers along the rural lanes.  Although not mentioned here, Frazer has talked of a phenomenon I too experienced when driving through South Armagh.  When you’re driving along a country lane and pass someone walking towards you, as you pass that person will turn around and stare at your car until you are out of sight.  I have never experienced that anywhere else I’ve ever visited.  It’s almost as if the scumbags know who is part of their little omerta community and who is an outsider.  Paranoia and terrorist obsequiousness!  These guys really have issues!!

Have a browse around the Fair website and peruse through Breen’s findings.  The next time I am in Northern Ireland, I would like a meeting with Willie Frazer to be high on my agenda.
