THE AYES HAVE IT

By Pete Moore On February 8th, 2017 at 8:29 pm

THE Brexit Bill has just passed in the Commons by 494 to 122 at the third and final reading. All (wrecking) amendments were defeated.

Theresa May is going to have a free hand in negotiations.

BREXIT BEGINS

By David Vance On February 8th, 2017 at 8:24 pm

The House of Commons. Just now….

‘Government wins backing to trigger Article 50 by 494 to 122″

It begins…

…Oh and NO special exceptions or provisions for N.Ireland.

CHANGE IN THE CLASS ROOM…

By David Vance On February 8th, 2017 at 2:54 pm

When I was at school, class discipline was high. We may not have liked the teacher but we respected him/her and we dared not be disruptive. That was back in the 1960’s. Fast forward 45 years…

Teachers in UK schools are trialling the use of body cameras in class to record bad pupils’ behaviour, it has been revealed. At least two schools in England have introduced the equipment for constant recording with the consent of local education authorities. The cameras, worn on teachers’ clothing, are set to film all the time but only save encrypted footage when the record button is pressed, The Times reported

Decades of liberal interference has seen disciple all but gone in too many schools and the fact that these body cameras are even considered is damning.

ULSTER SAYS NO TO STORMONT

By David Vance On February 8th, 2017 at 2:47 pm

This made me smile!

The majority of people in Northern Ireland would prefer something other than the immediate return of the Executive, latest polling figures suggest.

Polls, eh?

And when asked what outcome they would prefer best for the government of Northern Ireland, 44% said they would like to see the Executive reformed in the latest poll. 

56% felt otherwise.

The rest said they preferred direct rule, either temporarily or permanently, of some form of joint authority between the Irish and British governments. Over a third said direct rule was preferred albeit temporarily to allow for talks between the Northern Ireland parties. For unionist votes 38% said they would like to see the Executive return and 41% temporary direct rule. And for Sinn Fein supporters 41% preferred the return of the Executive and 47% in favour of joint authority.

I favour the abolition of Stormont and Westminster rule. Time to close down the failed Stormont.

ON THAT BAN…

By David Vance On February 8th, 2017 at 2:09 pm

Memo to the mainstream media.

Just as a point of information;

1/It ISN’T a ban, it is a temporary travel restriction

2/It isn’t muslims that are “banned” – it is people travelling from seven terrorist incubator states.

Apart from that, your coverage is awesome.

 

ISLAM IN THE UK…

Another First

By The Troll On February 8th, 2017 at 1:36 am

In a razor-close vote emblematic of the heated divide in U.S. politics, the Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos as the next secretary of education in unprecedented fashion on Tuesday.

For the first time ever, the vice president cast a tie-breaking vote in order to confirm a Cabinet-level nominee. After two Republican senators broke with their party and voted against the controversial school-choice advocate, Mike Pence pushed her nomination over the top by a final tally of 51-50.

The opposition to Ms. DeVos is nasty and venomous. You can find all sorts of reasons that the Democrats say they have against her, but there really is only one reason no matter what the say. Ms. DeVos is a threat to the Democrats number one base of Power. The Public School Teachers Unions.

I wish her luck in destroying this vile cancer in our system.

WHAT EUROPEANS REALLY THINK OF MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

By Pete Moore On February 7th, 2017 at 7:52 pm

Well this is awkward.

The Royal Institute of International Affairs (“Chatham House”) has surveyed more than 10,000 people in 10 European countries, on attitudes to muslim immigration. Chatham House describes them a “striking and sobering”. I’d describe them as “rather encouraging”.

In our survey, carried out before President Trump’s executive order was announced, respondents were given the following statement:

“All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.”

They were then asked to what extent did they agree or disagree with this statement. Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed.

Majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%.

An average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped. Many others are clearly unsettled by it. Twenty per cent are insane or commies.

This rather flies against the media line re. Trump and all patriots, which is to make him and us appear few, isolated and out of touch with “decent opinion”. On the contrary, it’s the politico-media establishment which is out of touch, as we’ve seen so many times in recent years.

Be of good cheer, patriots. We are winning.

VOTING WITH THEIR FEET

By Pete Moore On February 7th, 2017 at 6:54 pm

SOUNDS good to me. Reports The Guardian:

Refugees crossing into Canada from US on foot despite freezing temperatures

[…]

On Tuesday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said another 22 people had walked across the border and into Canada over the weekend; 19 of them on Saturday and three on Sunday.

“They’re not crossing at the actual point where there’s an immigration and customs offices,” said Rita Chahal of the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council. “They’re walking through prairie fields with lots and lots of deep snow. In Europe we’re seeing people in boats; now just imagine a prairie flatland and snow for miles and miles.”

There’s no word yet on whether these refugees (“illegal immigrants”) are Africans, muslims or Hollywood A-listers. It might be all three! Buy they’re off already, self-deporting, and President Trump hasn’t kicked anyone out yet. Talk about making good on your election promises. Total Winning.

He’ll need a job in eight year’s time. Can we have him over here then?

THE ENVY OF THE WORLD

By Pete Moore On February 6th, 2017 at 7:38 pm

WOULDN’T be surprised, not one bit. Reports the BBC:

A case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is either discovered or treated at a medical appointment in England every hour, a charity has said.

Plan International UK said statistics showed there were 8,656 times when a girl or woman was assessed at a doctor’s surgery or hospital.

Charity boss Tanya Barron said: “These figures are once again a reminder of the global prevalence of FGM.”

This might be a case of a charity exaggerating a problem to keep the cash rolling in. We’ve seen plenty of that going on. But then FGM is a major and growing problem in the UK, what with more and more of it becoming so enriched. Let’s be clear: FGM is illegal in the UK, and apparently cases are discovered, or treated, hourly. In almost all cases there will be guilty parents as well as guilty mutilators. And here is the number of successful prosecutions, in the UK, in relation to FGM:

Zero.

Some people just want a quiet life. Some might be afraid of being accused of “Islamophobia”. (It can’t be long ’till feminists march in defence of FGM, on “Islamophobic” grounds afterall.) But if you see something and don’t say something, you’re guilty too in my opinion.

Ultimately the parents are the most guilty. If your god demands that you hand your child to a bearded butcher with a scalpel, to be mutilated and deformed, it’s time to get a better god.
