Belfast is to get a new bigger and better Islamic Centre. Here’s the story and you can read my taker towards the end of it. I think I sound quite reasonable!
I have always like this guy and still find his comments interesting;
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, in an interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer, addressed criticism by former President George H.W. Bush and weighed in on the candidacy of GOP front-runner Donald Trump. “I see someone who has a touched a nerve in our country,” Rumsfeld said Monday, referring to Trump. Rumsfeld said, who also took a stab at why Jeb Bush’s campaign had failed to catch fire. “I suppose there are some people that are uncomfortable with a dynasty,” he said.
Agreed. Be it Clintons or Bushes – no American dynasties!
Islamic State in the European Superstate? No big surprise I suppose.
Terror group IS has set up secret training camps in EU countries and is preparing fighters to carry out “special forces style” attacks in Europe, Europol has warned. The international police agency said apart from bases in Syria, the barbaric organisation had “smaller scale training camps in the EU and Balkan countries”.
They would include survival training and sports activities to help jihadists prepare for “combat and interrogation resistance”. And Islamic State could look to recruit refugees who have fled to Europe to launch terror attacks in the countries that have given them shelter, the agency said.
Get that? The EU has provided sanctuary to those who may well seek to terrorise and kill its citizens. The barbarians are firmly locked INSIDE the citadel and the only thing that our politicians want to discuss is how many more will come here.
It’s transgenerational hate. This was happening in the same area forty years ago.
A gunshot was fired at police during serious disorder linked to a security alert in County Armagh on Sunday night. Officers came under attack from more than 100 petrol bombs on Lake Street in Lurgan. The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said officers were on the receiving end of “orchestrated, intense and prolonged violence”.
This is Irish republican scum doing all they know how to do – be violent and inconvenience all the good people of Lurgan.
Charles from Texas is back! Have a listen.
First, the background to the story
A referendum on political status was held in the Falkland Islands on 10–11 March 2013. The Falkland Islanders were asked whether or not they supported the continuation of their status as an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom in view of Argentina’s call for negotiations on the islands’ sovereignty. On a turnout of 91.94%, an overwhelming 99.8% voted to remain a British territory, with only three votes against.
Pretty overwhelming, yes? Well, NO if you are the Leader of the Labour Party.
“Jeremy Corbyn has told Argentinian diplomats he wants a Northern Ireland-style power-sharing deal for the Falkland Islands, according to reports. Argentina’s outgoing ambassador to London, Alicia Castro, said the Labour leader “shares our concerns” and (sic) “he is one of ours”.
In an interview published on the Argentinian embassy’s website, Castro said Corbyn had visited the Argentinian embassy in London and was “friendly and humorous”. “He is saying that dialogue [is] possible and that attitudes are beginning to change, that what was achieved in Northern Ireland can be achieved also here,” she said.
It’s lunacy, of course, and I am sure that the 99.8% of Falkland Islanders who voted to remain 100% BRITISH will gasp at this folly.
And the punchline?
Waving a white flag as you race towards the battlefield is an….interesting strategy.
The leader of the Scottish Labour party, Kezia Dugdale, will address the shadow cabinet this week about the party’s desperate plight north of the border, amid growing tensions about tactics ahead of the crucial 5 May elections in Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales.
Senior shadow cabinet figures believe Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s team is adopting a deliberate, self-defeating strategy of downplaying Labour’s prospects and is, in effect, raising the white flag in advance, to minimise criticism if and when it suffers damaging losses.
They insist that negative briefings about Labour’s chances everywhere but in the London mayoral election – where there is optimism that Labour’s Sadiq Khan will defeat Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith – make a nonsense of claims by Corbyn, after the Oldham byelection in December, that the party is enthusing a new generation of voters who have engaged with his “new politics”.
I believe that Corbyn is entirely disconnected from the mainstream of UK political thinking. He represents a pure form of neo-marxism, inherently anti-British and pro Immigrant. He is untrusted on Security and the Economy and as Peter Mandelson himself it is IMPOSSIBLE to win a UK General Election from this position. Corbyn and his ilk do not believe this and so May will be great fun when we see the scale of the devastation he brings.
I thought it interesting that the BBC chose NOT to report this story on their main TV news that happened yesterday. They have graciously now added it to a low ranking web page. Yup – that’s how they see the priority.
The port of Calais was temporarily closed on Saturday and services were disrupted after a group of migrants briefly boarded a ship. It is understood that about 50 migrants in Calais boarded a P&O ferry named the Spirit of Britain, while it was unloading. The incident happened during a protest at the port, in favour of migrants. The port has since reopened and sailing services have returned to normal.
As millions of muslim illegal immigrants swarm across Europe, many more will head towards the Calais point and the chance to get into the UK. The French aren’t that bothered, we have seen their OWN massive problems with unassimilated Islam. I think the UK must own this problem, place the ARMY between us and the illegals, and be prepared to ensure NONE get to our country. It’s the battle of Britain 2016.
IT’S no surpise that British “anarchists” have been arrested in connection with the immigrant incursion which closed down Calais yesterday. You could see these arrogant, middle class dimwits in the photos, egging on the invaders. That they crudely defaced a statue of de Gaulle might encourage French beaks to throw the book at them. Here’s hoping not even Soros amounts of cash can keep them from a generous stay in prison.
Peter Hitchens wrote about these types a couple of years ago. He’s one of the most conservative commentators around now, but he knows what he’s talking about because he was once one of them. This is the key bit but do read it all –
When I was a Revolutionary Marxist, we were all in favour of as much immigration as possible.
It wasn’t because we liked immigrants, but because we didn’t like Britain. We saw immigrants – from anywhere – as allies against the staid, settled, conservative society that our country still was at the end of the Sixties.
Also, we liked to feel oh, so superior to the bewildered people – usually in the poorest parts of Britain – who found their neighbourhoods suddenly transformed into supposedly ‘vibrant communities’.
If they dared to express the mildest objections, we called them bigots.
Revolutionary students didn’t come from such ‘vibrant’ areas (we came, as far as I could tell, mostly from Surrey and the nicer parts of London).
We might live in ‘vibrant’ places for a few (usually squalid) years, amid unmown lawns and overflowing dustbins.
But we did so as irresponsible, childless transients – not as homeowners, or as parents of school-age children, or as old people hoping for a bit of serenity at the ends of their lives.
When we graduated and began to earn serious money, we generally headed for expensive London enclaves and became extremely choosy about where our children went to school, a choice we happily denied the urban poor, the ones we sneered at as ‘racists’.
What did we know, or care, of the great silent revolution which even then was beginning to transform the lives of the British poor?
To us, it meant patriotism and tradition could always be derided as ‘racist’.
And it also meant cheap servants for the rich new middle-class, for the first time since 1939, as well as cheap restaurants and – later on – cheap builders and plumbers working off the books.
It wasn’t our wages that were depressed, or our work that was priced out of the market. Immigrants didn’t do the sort of jobs we did.
They were no threat to us.
The only threat might have come from the aggrieved British people, but we could always stifle their protests by suggesting that they were modern-day fascists.
I have learned since what a spiteful, self-righteous, snobbish and arrogant person I was (and most of my revolutionary comrades were, too).
I have seen places that I knew and felt at home in, changed completely in a few short years.
