NO SPEAKER!

By David Vance On October 13th, 2014 at 9:34 pm

You would need a heart of stone NOT to laugh at this.

Assembly members have failed to elect a new Speaker after all three candidates fell short of a cross-community majority. Previous Speaker William Hay has retired because of ill health.  Sinn Féin said the DUP should honour an agreement to support its nominee Mitchel McLaughlin. However, DUP leader Peter Robinson said the appointment of Speaker should be dealt with at the upcoming talks along with welfare reform.

Excellent. So there is no “official” Speaker but guess who the acting principle Speaker is? Yes, Mitchel McLaughlin.

Stormont – where principles go to die!

By the way, McLaughlin was the guy who declared in 2005 that the kidnapping, torture and murder of Jean McConville by the IRA was not “a crime”.

I think it IS  a crime that someone such as he has ANY role in Government.

By the way, when is WHITE history month?

PARLIAMENT TO RECOGNISE NARNIA?

By David Vance On October 13th, 2014 at 9:26 pm

I see Labour are keen to court the UK Muslim vote by introducing a vote in the Commons on whether the House should recognise “Palestine”.  Just a few points on this one. Why would we give credence to a terrorist State that oozes Islamofascism? For your attention..

They may as well vote to recognise Narnia. Palestine already exists – it is called Jordan.

The Academic can’t fight a war…. what a shock

obama1-compressedAfter Eight Weeks of half-ass airstrikes by the U.S. there is no gain only further loss of Kurds and Iraqis.

Kobani gets eaten by the Islamic Horde as we pin prick useless targets and the Turks sit in their Tanks in the Hills above the Town and watch the Kurds get slaughtered as they block their escape and lift not a finger as thousands die. Not one delivery of promised Arms have been delivered by the Obama Regime to the Kurds as the street fills with their blood and their daughters are sold as sex slaves.

The Iraqis are screaming for help as Baghdad stands on the verge of being run over.  Obama twiddles his thumbs about the war, while at the same time that he allows the ME to burn he plots how to bypass Congress by closing Gitmo and transferring the prisoners to the Mainland to be “handled” in Criminal Court.

Two more years of this fool yet to go.

WHAT MAKES THE NEWS?

By Pete Moore On October 12th, 2014 at 8:27 pm

If a protest took place in London, and the media ignores it, did it really happen? Yesterday a pretty large anti-ISIS/pro-Kurd protest took place in London, ending up at Downing Street. An eight-minute video is here.

A google search shows only The Independent reporting it. There are no other MSM results. The BBC London news page, always keen to promote a favoured protest, however small, has nothing.

I suppose that’s Kobani and the Kurds down the memory hole then. They’re just not in favour.

THE RISE AND RISE OF UKIP…

By David Vance On October 12th, 2014 at 11:02 am

Well, the Sunday press is full of UKIP. We have one poll suggesting that UKIP will win ALL 25 of it’s target seats at the general election next year and ANOTHER saying it could win as many as 125 seats at Westminster, based on its current 25% share of the vote. Now then, polls are polls and all must be taken with a pinch of salt BUT only a fool would deny that UKIP seems to be changing the UK political map.

article-2789512-22254CFA00000578-215_636x357

Lest some forgot, they have TOPPED the national poll at the European Elections in May of this year and they have a rolling momentum which is causing all kinds of problem for the Conservatives and Labour Parties.

Unknown-1

The Cameronians are now between a rock and a hard place. Voters have seen that if you vote UKIP you get UKIP and many more will be tempted to make that choice. When they look at what happened at Middleton and Heywood, they see that if you vote Conservative then you get Labour, so confounding Cameron’s line!

Meanwhile, things look DIRE for Labour. It’s obvious that under Miliband, they no longer appeal to a chunk of what we can term “traditional white working class” Labour – the people who have seen their communities transmogrified by Labour’s multicultural and open border zeal!

My hope for the General Election is to see a Conservative/UKIP coalition – with Nigel Farage made the new Europe Minister, and with a firm date set for a National vote on whether we stay or leave the EU. We need to revolutionise Britain and this might just be the moment when it happens, just as it did in 1979 when Thatcher came to power.

I have read the comments about not getting too excited about by election results and that is fair comment. But as I have said, the European Elections saw UKIP triumph, and the “feel” of UK politics seems to be that we are heading for a moment in time next May when the British people will speak and the elite will surely not like hearing what they have to say. There is another by-election next month in the constituency of Rochester and Strood. Should UKIP win that, and I believe they will, then the panic button will resound across British politics which if nothing else should give us plenty to talk about!

We’re tired of lies we want the truth!

As can be seen in the Telegraph story regarding Owen Paterson and the truly awful Climate Change Act, he is calling for the repeal, or at least the suspension, of this Act which promises to be THE most expensive legislation ever saddled upon this benighted Nation of ours. He states that the absurd levels of the so-called ‘Decarbonisation’ demanded by this Act will cost us £1,100 Billion in terms of cash we cannot afford, and after the disastrous damage wrought by the ‘Decarbon’ process, we will not have altered the Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere by one ounce. Click on the Link, and read the story for yourselves.

Now speaking and writing personally, as I always do, I had a fair amount of time for Owen Paterson as a man, but probably a bit less for him as a politician. He was, in many respects, the typical old-time Tory from the Shires; his background was rural, his values seemed to be based in the English countryside. He voted against the truly ghastly Same-Sex marriage farrago, and he also, happily, came down like a ton of bricks on the limp-wristed Chris Smith in his disgusting and disgraceful actions when the Environment Agency’s wholesale abandonment of decades of sensible flood management systems resulted in the worst flooding of the Somerset Levels since records first began.

But I think that Owen Patterson ought to state why he has come out against the Climate Act only now, when on the back-benches, instead of when he was in Cabinet, and in a much higher profile position than now, when he could have stood up and denounced this Act for the ‘Green Crap’ it so soundly endorses.

Why did he keep quiet, if he believed that the Act was so wrong for Great Britain?

Why did he not threaten to resign if no-one took any notice of a countryman standing up for the Country?

Why did he stay in the Coalition Government if he felt that this policy, and this Act, was so wrong?

Why did he allow the Environment Agency to continue for so long with the perverted schemes of Chris Smith, when it was plainly obvious of the damage they were doing to the landscapes of England?

 

Or is the simple truth that he is, and always has been, just another greasy bloody politician, out purely for his own purposes, and ever ready to ditch a long-held belief for his own advancement?

 

THE JOY OF IMMIGRATION…

Never mind Ebola, here’s a disease which is also on the up.

London has the highest rate of tuberculosis of any western European capital, according to figures from Public Health England (PHE). The capital has a “worrying” rate of 42 per 100,000 people, compared with a national figure of 14 per 100,000. In total there were 3,426 cases of the lung disease in the city in 2012, making up nearly 40% of the UK total. The worst affected area was Newham in east London with a rate of 119 cases per 100,000 people.

By coincidence, Newham also has one of the very highest rates of Muslims, a staggering 32%.

The riches that immigration without limits brings our way are truly awesome.

MARTY LIKES ROYALTY..

By David Vance On October 12th, 2014 at 10:31 am

I’m touched. Really.

Sinn Féins/IRA’s Martin McGuinness has paid tribute to the Queen, saying that he likes her.  The former IRA commander, who went on to become Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister, first met the Queen at a charity event in Belfast in 2012.

“I liked her courage in agreeing to meet with me; I liked the engagements that I’ve had with her,” he said.  “There’s nothing I have seen in my engagements with her that this is someone I should dislike – I like her.”

Fair enough. However, given that HIS IRA killed hundreds of Her Majesty’s soldiers, and given that HIS IRA also blew apart the Queen’s cousin, Lord Mountbatten, she has many reasons to dislike him.

SO, HOW DID FRANCE GET IT SO WRONG?

By David Vance On October 12th, 2014 at 10:27 am

It’s a straightforward question. How is it that the world’s 5th largest economy, France, is in SUCH a mess in 2014?

Since President François Hollande entered the Elysée in 2012, France hasn’t managed two successive quarters of economic growth. The former Socialist Party leader’s programme of more regulation, higher spending and punitive taxation – not least his 75 per cent top rate of income tax, which has seen a flood of wealthy French professionals move to London – is being widely blamed for this dismal French growth performance. The public finances have meanwhile worsened, with unemployment now stuck above 10 per cent, compared with 6.2 per cent in Britain.

Stark differences between the UK under a Tory-led Coalition and Hollande’s France have led to comparisons between Ed Miliband and the French President. The Labour leader has shown a similar reluctance to face up to budgetary realities – resisting Conservative spending cuts, then claiming he “forgot” to mention the deficit in his recent party conference speech.

Miliband’s proposed “mansion tax” on homes worth more than £2 million, like Hollande’s 75 per cent rate, has been condemned as unworkable, even by some of Labour’s leading donors. “The UK should be very careful not to repeat the mistakes now being made in France,” says Gaspar Koening, president of the think tank Generation Libre. “The agenda of Ed Miliband, after all, seems very close to that of François Hollande.”

Redux? France votes socialist and all its problem are accentuated. That simple.
