Thought this was interesting. It’s a follow up to the story I published yesterday concerning the treatment of Mairia Cahill by the IRA.

Two of those Ms Cahill identified in the programme as having led the IRA internal inquiry into the allegations are well-known figures.

Padraic Wilson was once the leader of the IRA in the Maze Prison, and is now considered a …cough…supporter of the peace process.  Seamus Finucane is a brother of the solicitor Pat Finucane, who was shot dead by loyalists. 

Pat Finucane, lest we forget, was a totally innocent man who was not connected in any way to the IRA. Unlike his Provo brother Seamus. Oh, and unlike his Provo brother John. Oh, and unlike his Provo brother Dermot.  Yup, an innocent man who scurrilous people have alleged was a senior IRA man. Shameful, right?

My heart was warmed at the news that Nichola Sturgeon has become the new leader of the SNP. Here is a lovely image of Alex Salmond congratulating lovely Nichola. Wishing her all the best.


Global Warming strikes again

Further proof, if it were ever needed of course, that the true terror of Climate Change along with Global Warming is fast advancing upon us all; but very evidently faster in Australia’s Blue Mountains.

‘We are unlikely to see another one anytime soon but it is more likely as the world warms up, climate change means we will get greater variations in our weather,’ Mr White added.

We’re all doomed; doomed, I tell you!


We have ways of making you believe!

One of the more fascinating pieces of knowledge to emerge when World War Two was finally over were the listings of titles which had been bestowed upon grossly ordinary men, serving the Nazi State. Stützpunktleiter, Ortsgruppenleiter, Kreisleiter, Stellvertreter, Gauleiter, formed the political elite; and the military hierarchy were similarly named, with titles such as Obergruppen-Sturmfuhrer and Sturmbanfuhrer. These men, quite possibly sociopaths all, were given titles, uniforms, positions of power and influence far outweighing their intellectual capacity, because they were all essentially weak, wished to be associated with greatness, and they all saw the supreme greatness of their Fuhrer as the salvation of Germany. They saw nothing wrong with the ‘idea’ of Jewish Genocide, mainly because that idea, without being actually spelled out, had been espoused and enunciated by their Leader; and because the Fuhrer can do no wrong, neither could they.

So, based on the premise that because an idea cannot be seen to be challenged, cannot possibly be wrong, what do ATW readers think of the proposal from the Health Nazi Gauleiter ‘Lord’ Darzi that smoking be banned from all of London’s parks and public places. This proposed ban is not to alleviate the old canard of ‘passive smoke inhalation’; but instead is to make the ‘smoke-free places’ a Role Model for the young, for the easily lead, for the weak-willed.

Now I haven’t smoked a cigarette for thirty-odd years, to me it is a filthy, dangerous, disgusting, smelly, ludicrously expensive habit, and a habit which will kill you; but to ban the use and enjoyment of a perfectly legal product in The Open Air: Stalin couldn’t do it, Hitler couldn’t do it, so will Boris bloody Johnson, his mate Darzi, and all the other Health Nazis succeed where mass murderers failed? I fervently hope not!

This is an interesting development;

Maíria Cahill has waived her right to anonymity to speak to BBC Spotlight about how the IRA interrogated her and forced her to confront the man she claimed had raped her as a teenager A woman has claimed the IRA forced her to confront her alleged rapist before forcing her into silence to protect the republican movement from her claims.

Maíria Cahill said she was raped as a teenager and was later interrogated by the IRA about her allegations.  She claimed she was subjected to a kangaroo court, while the IRA tried to find out if it was her or her alleged rapist who was telling the truth.  The Belfast woman is member of one of the republican movement’s best-known families. Her great uncle, Joe Cahill, was one of the founders of the Provisional IRA and a long-time associate of Sinn Féin president, Gerry Adams.

There can be no real surprise here. The IRA operate as judge, jury and if required, executioner. Mairia Cahill was treated abominably but then again, coming from amongst such republican mafiosa, can she be surprised?

Worth reflecting that 20,000 students from West Africa, studying at British universities, are arriving back for the start of term. Enjoy.

The date is set. The people of Rochester and Strood go to the polls on NOVEMBER 20TH to elect a new MP.

The by-election caused by the defection of Conservative MP Mark Reckless to UKIP will take place on 20 November. In the Commons, Government Chief Whip Michael Gove moved the writ for the contest to take place in Rochester and Strood, Kent. Labour has said the by-election could and should happen earlier. But a Conservative source called this claim “ludicrous”, as Parliament had been in recess since before Mr Reckless changed party. This meant that, given the Speaker needs 24 hours’ notice once the Commons is sitting before a writ can be moved, it had happened at the earliest possible point, they added. Meanwhile, the Conservatives have narrowed their possible candidates down to a field of two.

I believe that Reckless will win – even though he is NOT as strong a personality as Douglas Carswell who has triumphed in nearby Clacton last week. And I further believe that when this happens, it will trigger a MAJOR problem for the Conservatives. The day is getting closer when that Party will schism and it may just be that this will be the moment.

Remember this? It was six months ago when Islamic jihadists kidnapped 200+ Christian girls in Nigeria. This is now the left responded…remember?



Six months on, the girls are still missing – presumed sold into slavery in true Islamic tradition. Sad face Michelle may have won the plaudits from the leftist choir for her PR coup but Boko Haram are indifferent to such pathetic pleas. They only understand force and that is the one thing that Michelle’s husband seems so reluctant to use. Nigeria, of course, is a basket case Government and one has to feel so sorry for the families effected.  But hashtag campaigns achieve NOTHING when dealing with savages.

Labour is being shown up as THE anti-English Party!

William Hague and Gordon Brown have clashed in the Commons over calls for “English votes for English laws”. In a debate on devolution, Mr Hague said the “legitimate expectations” of the English people must be recognised when more powers are given to Scotland. But the ex-Labour PM said “crude” Tory plans risked undermining the UK in the wake of the Scottish referendum. Labour has said it will boycott a body set up by the Conservatives to examine the role of English MPs in Parliament.

Now, WHY would Labour oppose home rule for England? The RED is Labour!!!!


Labour DEMANDS more power for Scotland yet refuses to countenance it for England. You see the problem this will give them?
