IMPRISON PARENTS…

By David Vance On July 24th, 2015 at 5:05 pm

When it comes to arrogance the UN takes some beating…

British parents should be jailed for smacking their children, a United Nations report has suggested.  Officials from the UN Human Rights Committee recommended banning corporal punishment in a report that also called for the Government to scrap indefinite immigration detention.

Their report warned that Britain should “put an end to corporal punishment in all settings, including in the home”. The officials added: “It should encourage non-violent forms of discipline as alternatives to corporal punishment, and conduct public information campaigns to raise awareness about its harmful effects.” Currently, parents are not explicitly banned from striking their children. The law allows for “reasonable chastisement” to control a child’s behaviour is lawful, but parents can be prosecuted if their actions result in injuries such as bruises, cuts or scratches.

Gotta love the way the UN tries to conflate discipline with ‘violence’. As far as I am concerned the UN has no business telling ANY parent how they should go about their parental business but IF they DO want to do something positive they might like to look at those parents who ensure that girls go through FGM, go into forced marriages, be turned into virtual slaves. Instead it goes after parents who seek to ensure their kids are brought up properly. No parent should ever be allowed to indulge in “violence” against their children but a timely slap does no harm whatsoever if the child is behaving atrociously. As readers may know, I have two kids and as I recall, they were very good well behaved children but on a few occasions they behaved badly and they were given the proverbial loving slap. It didn’t do them any harm whatsoever and in my view parents MUST have the RIGHT to chastise bad behaviour in children. It is how they learn.

DON’T GO?

So, the President of the United States has determined that he can tell the people of the UK how they should vote come the Referendum on whether or not we remain mired in the EU.

The UK must stay in the European Union to continue to have influence on the world stage, US President Barack Obama has told the BBC. He said the UK’s EU membership “gives us much greater confidence about the strength of the transatlantic union”.

I was invited onto BBC London to discuss this earlier today.

My view is that Obama is way out of line on this one on at least five different levels!

1. He has NO electoral mandate in the UK so why does he think he has a right to tell us how WE should vote? As I pointed out he is less relevant here than even Labour!!!

2. Has he no respect for diplomatic protocol OR did he make this intervention with the approval of Cameron? If so, is our PM also colluding to keep us IN the EU?

3. Obama talks of his deep affection for the UK. Is this what prompted him to remove the bust of Churchill from the Oval Office when he first arrived there?

4. He talks of how the EU has secured peace in Europe post WW2 but this denies the fact that it was AMERICAN military power that kept the peace! He is actually erasing the role his OWN country has played!!!

5. He talks of the prosperity the EU has brought to the peoples of Europe. Has he heard of Greece? Of Portugal? Of Spain? Has he any idea of the economic meltdown that IS the EU?

The only thing that I can understand motivating Obama is that since he believes in an open border with Mexico I guess he wants to ensure the UK continues to have an open border with the EU.

Mike’s News-Grab and commentary!

By Mike Cunningham On July 24th, 2015 at 2:19 pm

This morning, courtesy of the BBC’s Toady (sorry) Today Programme; we were treated, if that is the appropriate term, to selective segments of propaganda disguised as news items; I term them ‘propaganda’ because only one side of an argument is given or portrayed; with absolutely no chance of a considered discussion, especially from opponents of whatever subject is being discussed. They ranged from an impassioned critique of an EU Commission proposal to harmonise Wildlife protection measures; to the maundering pronunciations of a Lame-duck US President on why the United Kingdom must remain wedded to the European Union.

  • A five minute report on the evils of gambling in Australia, and how awful it was, and all that compulsion, ‘n everything: innit?
  • We heard how Prez. Barack Hussein Obama is heading back to his (Partly) ancestral homeland of Kenya, and how excited he was to speak of the ‘entrepeneurs’ who were enlivening the Kenyan business culture: and we then heard from two of Kenya’s ‘business elite’ about how successful they were, and it was all due to capitalism; or sleight of hand, or something ( No mention of the billions stolen by the larcenous Kenyan governments; but thats all because ‘boys will be boys’, and that).
  • Some RSPB woman commenced  an impassioned critique of an EU Commission proposal to harmonise Wildlife protection measures; and how it was all wrong, and the birds were all doomed, and it was just terrible!
  • A Sutton Trust spokeswoman declared that ‘social mobility’ was at risk because Academy schools in England were unable to improve the results of their ‘disadvantaged’ students. No mention was made of two facts which may impinge on those same results: it was possible that the whole idea of ‘Comprehensive education’ was actually ‘shit’ and; the other possibility was that the kids were either uninterested, or just plain thick!
  • We were told that Chris Froome, a cyclist, was believed to be loading up with high-performance chemicals and drugs during the ‘Tour de France’, which I discovered was a form of mental torture for millions of fat Frenchmen who just could not get over the fact that yet another Englishman was beating the crap out of their fellow countrymen.
  • Glaxo SmithKline informed us all that they had discovered a vaccine for malaria, but it would only be suitable for kids over one year old. It was also implied that, because the African countries where malaria was endemic were very, very, poor; lots of liberal idiots believed that GSK should give this vaccine away, despite this medication costing literally tens of millions to invent and produce, and GSK should not be allowed, under any circumstances, to actually make a profit!
  • Obama featured once more, in an interview in the White House (oh how they must hate that name) and stated that Great Britain must stay in the European Union, becozz its such a good place, and becozz of ‘trade’, and becozz of the UK’s former lap-dog approach to America’s military adventures; spoiled only by our blunt refusal to bomb Syria’s Assad.
  • We were then told of the dicovery of a planet named ‘Kepler-452b’ and how it was just possible that life may exist outside our Solar System, and how exciting this was, and how squillions more money was needed for more ‘research’, and telescopes, and things like that!
  • Some bloke then was interviewed about some snake, or it may have been a lizard, which had lived some hundred million years ago, which had been re-discovered in some museum in Germany; which was ‘dead interesting’ and also exciting; or something.
  • The NHS also featured, and we were told how Emergency Care  stuff and things were gonna’ get better, but not, unfortunately; for a long, long time; probably about the same length of time as the snake’s remains had been in the museum!

THE SAVAGE CUTS THAT NEVER HAPPENED..

By David Vance On July 23rd, 2015 at 10:14 am

It’s two days since my article of the WELFARE budget here in N.Ireland was published. At the heart of that article was a simple question to my critics which I would like to emphasise. Given that this budget has increased EVERY year since 2010, in the last 12 months by over 3%, can someone please show me in the figures where the “savage cuts” that Sinn Fein and the SDLP keep referring to can be found? I was on BBC Radio with Trade Unionist dinosaur Bumper Graham – he suggested that I should move to England by way of addressing my question.

It strikes me that we have a false debate here. The truth is that there have been NO cuts to Welfare, that this keeps on rising as a matter of fact, and that Sinn Fein/SDLP are simply playing to those parts of their core vote who demand that the goodies keep on coming from the taxpayer. West Belfast says YES to one in five getting DLA benefit, the highest in Northern Ireland.

TROUBLE IN THE CLASSROOM…

By David Vance On July 23rd, 2015 at 10:06 am

There thing about demographic change is that whilst it starts oh so slowly it gathers momentum and becomes unstoppable. Here’s yet another example of how this is manifesting itself here in the UK.

England’s secondary schools risked being overwhelmed according to government predications that the number of pupils will soar by 20 per cent in a decade. The Department for Education expects there to be half a million more pupils by 2024 compared today, push the figure to almost 3.3million.

Unions said schools are already ‘stretched to their limits’ and will struggle to cope with more children as triggered by a rising population and immigration.

Now then, just reflect on that this is what the TRADE UNIONS are claiming. They are attributing this massive forecast surge in classroom numbers to immigrants coming in here in unprecedented numbers and a rising population. We know that the indigenous white British population birth rate is BELOW replacement level, and we know that ethnic groups such as Bangladeshi and Pakistani living here is around three-four times greater than that needed to replace numbers.  (These statistics are available from the ONS in case anyone questions them)

So, combine open borders and the embrace of multiculturalism and you ensure that your Nation will change out of all recognition and that is precisely what is happening here. Schools, hospitals, GP surgeries – they are all being submerged as demand exists supply. And all the time – those border remain open AND those birth-rates soar.

GAYS OPPOSE GAYS PARADE…

By David Vance On July 23rd, 2015 at 9:55 am

This story amused me.

On July 29, a gay pride parade is scheduled in Sweden.  But, you see, this is no ordinary gay pride parade.

This gay pride parade was created by Jan Sjunnesson, former editor-in-chief for the Samtiden newspaper in Sweden, which is owned by the nationalist Sweden Democrats party. The parade is scheduled to go through Tensta and Husby – two areas where Muslim immigrants are more than 75% of the population. On the event’s Facebook page, the organizers state that there will be public “kissing” and “singing”.

The Facebook page is absolutely filled with angry comments from leftists, attacking the “xenophobic right-wing nationalists” for organizing a gay pride parade through Muslim areas. Since Islam holds that gays should be executed, something like this is obviously an attack on Muslims and should therefore be outlawed. At least, that’s what Swedish leftists – and, indeed, Swedish gays – are saying.

Leftists are organizing a counter-demonstration against this gay pride parade. Yes, really.”

The reality here is that some gays are seeking to collude with Muslims who oppose other gays walking through “their” areas. My My.

LEARNING WHAT OPPOSITION MEANS…

By David Vance On July 23rd, 2015 at 9:43 am

The SNP has 56 MP’s. The Conservative Government has 330 MP’s and our Caledonian friends are going to have 5 years to understand what being in OPPOSITION means.

The UK government should relax its clampdown on onshore wind subsidies, the Scottish government has demanded. Ministers scrapped subsidies following complaints, mainly from England, about the impact of wind farms on the countryside. But Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that as 70% of planned wind farms are set for Scotland, it would be disproportionately affected. The UK government said customers must get value for money.

Redux? Tough, get used to it – SNP.

Wind farm subsidies, taken from all those who pay for electricity, are a monumental scam and should not just be capped, but axed. Sturgeon can howl all she wants but 1/ She is not elected to Westminster and 2/ Those of her colleagues that are at Westminster are not in government, merely opposition.

The offer, on the website, is for organisations to pay £55,000 to listen to a speech made by Nick Clegg, the former Deputy Prime Minister,  serial thief, liar, and turncoat.

 

The question possibly should be re-phrased to ask if anyone was prepared to pay 55p to listen to Nick Clegg, the former Deputy Prime Minister, former leader of the LIB-Dems, serial thief, liar, and turncoat.

Not a single F”#***ing penny!

By Mike Cunningham On July 22nd, 2015 at 11:43 am

Very shortly, the whole 50-odd million of us who live in England  will wake up to find that, if they visit a supermarket, they will have been the victims of a massive robbery, and they will not be able to complain, or alert the authorities, because this particular crime has been perpetrated by Parliament. Courtesy of Nick Clegg, the alleged MP, along with a staunch follow-up crew from the Daily Mail, they ran a campaign to make everyone who shops at English supermarkets BUY the plastic bags at 5p a pop, with an estimated turnover profit of around £90 million, per year.

These pricks who obviously have never been near a supermarket, and thus have never had to carry their own purchases to a car, have built this Tax to hit everyone but them, and its all for such a good cause!

Whether the so-called environment actually needs protecting is, to my mind, a moot point; what with uniformed Council would-be Nazis jumping on someone for dropping fag-ash on the pavement, but the vast majority recycle the damn things anyway, so what’s the point of making us buy them? Are we going to get our money back if we return or re-use them? I doubt it very much!

aplasticbag2The Act of Parliament which authorises this wholesale garbage goes into such detail as the thickness of the bags, etc., but the one thing it does not stipulate is of course who is going to be the beneficiary of all this lovely cash. The Act primly states that it (the £90-odd million) should go to good causes, so can’t you see the slavering jaws of the greedy clowns from the scum who run the RSPCA, the RNLI, along with the Oxfam Vultures who endorsed the phone campaigns against those who suffer from Dementia; and all the usual suspects as they hammer at the back doors of Tesco, Sainsburys, and the rest, blood in their eyes at the very thought of all that money going up for grabs!
The solution? Use or recycle old bags; buy long-lasting bags, anything: but don’t give 5p, never mind £5.00, to the slavering herd who will be all over the cash, demanding ever more for their f’#**ing so-called blood-sucking Charities!
