Always remember that the demographic is the future;
Immigration from the EU will add the equivalent of a city as big as Manchester to the UK’s population every four years, a report warns today. The study predicts net migration from inside Europe will be 130,000 every year if current trends continue. This total includes 50,000 Romanians and Bulgarians and 40,000 from Poland and the seven other Eastern European nations which joined the EU in 2004.
This tsunami of immigrants is simply not compatible with the UK as we know it and yet is is unstoppable. The price of staying in the EU is that the face of Britain is to be changed out of ALL recognition forever. You have been warned,

Kerry is on a beating to nothing;
The future of Middle East peace talks were left hanging by a thread on Tuesday after Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian leader, applied to join 15 United Nations bodies, dealing a potentially fatal blow to US efforts to save negotiations from collapsing. Mr Abbas said the applications – breaching an earlier promise to desist from going to the UN – were in response to Israel’s refusal to release a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners in violation of an agreement reached last July. ”The Palestinian leadership has unanimously approved a decision to seek membership of 15 UN agencies and international treaties, beginning with the Fourth Geneva Convention,” the Palestinian Authority president said in a televised address after signing the applications at his Ramallah headquarters.
The Palestinians do not want peace, they want victory. They know that the UN is inherently anti-Israel, unsurprising given the huge number of influential Arab nations within it, and the shield provided by America only goes so far. Holocaust denier Abbas IS an embarrassment and yet he will be given credence by the goons that constitute the UN.

Wonder what you think of this?
War Horse author Michael Morpurgo has waded into the debate over how to mark the centenary of the First World War, insisting that the occasion should ‘in no way be celebrated’. The 70-year-old children’s writer suggested that events that encourage national pride and ‘flag-waving’ in the run-up to the anniversary of the declaration of war on August 4 should not go ahead. A more ‘sincere’ way to mark the occasion would be to wear white poppies alongside the traditional red ones as a way of honouring the dead, he said.
I have a problem with White Poppies. They are the product of an anti-war mindset and are essentially pacifist in character. No sane person wants war but there are times when it becomes essential. I am glad that we fought and won the First World War and am proud of all those who gave their lives to achieve that. It is very easy to be judgemental in retrospect but the red poppy says it all and we do not need this pale and offensive alternative.

Thank goodness we have our local politicians in charge, goes the mantra of the pro Belfast Agreement pro devolution brigade. Really?
Public spending in Northern Ireland was £9.6bn higher than the amount raised in taxes in 2011/12, according to research by the Department of Finance. The Net Fiscal Balance Report shows that the spending deficit fell slightly compared to 2010/11, and is well below the £10.3bn peak in 2009/10. The deficit, expressed as a percentage of total economic output, stands at 33% compared to a UK figure of 10%. ’Per head’ the fiscal deficit is £5,311 compared to a UK figure of £2,133. Northern Ireland’s annual fiscal deficit increased by £3bn between 2007 and 2012, the report shows.
A normal person might feel a sense of alarm over this but not our politicos. Instead, egged on by a largely economically ignorant media, they are proud that they have “fought” to keep on spending £££ that they do not have. That is why we have seen NO welfare reduction here, it just keeps rising and the likelihood is that the British Government will half tolerate this in order to keep “the peace”/

I was amused to read that Labour leader Ed Miliband will lose the next general election unless .… yes, he offers more left-wing policies such as renationalising the railways and putting up the minimum wage, the leader of the Unite trade union has said, and has threatened to pull millions of pounds in funding from the party.
Len McCluskey, whose union is Labour’s biggest donor, said “battle” had broken out among Labour MPs over its election manifesto.
This is street theatre for the slow of thinking. In a way it is designed to help Miliband give the appearance of NOT being left even though he is. Those like McCluskey provide a useful cloak to Labour and that is why this charade continues. Make no mistake, Labour is profoundly LEFT and the barking from McCluskey should not fool anyone.

Sheffield. England. 2013.
A man decapitated his teenage girlfriend while she was still alive then stabbed himself in the chest, a court heard today.
Aras Hussein (Typical British name?) 21, had allegedly blackmailed 18-year-old Reema Ramzan by taking sexual photographs of her and threatening to share them with her family if she broke up with him. Sheffield Crown Court was told that on June 4 last year, he killed her by cutting off her head with a knife before inflicting stab wounds on himself.
Remember, ALL cultures are equal and we must not judge. Just think of the merit these Iraqis bring to Blighty.

Many decisions in our courts leave me cold but THIS one was a pleasure to read!
A schoolgirl spectator hit on the forehead by an ice hockey puck at a Belfast Giants match is not entitled to damages, a High Court judge has ruled. Courtney Harris-Browning, now 18, was seeking £30,000 in an action against the team’s owners and the occupiers of Belfast’s Odyssey Arena. But Mr Justice Gillen dismissed her negligence claim. He said the Belfast venue had been made as safe as reasonably possible.
Compensation culture is a menace and for someone to try and take this Ice Hockey team for £30,ooo just because they got hit on the head by the puck is….well, pucking ridiculous. Well said Justice Gillen!

The death of children always affects me. It seems so un-natural and it does shake your faith. I reconcile it by remembering God is NOT human, does not think like us, and has reasoning we cannot fathom. This was the story that caught my eye..
A little boy who completed his bucked list by meeting Gary Barlow and receiving a video message from Dr Who star Matt Smith has died. Identical twin Jack Robinson, four, from Denmead, Hampshire, died of a brain tumour today. Jack had a day his family will never forget when the Take That singer Gary Barlow visited him in hospital in February. His mother, Post office supervisor Marie, posted on his Facebook page ‘Jack’s Journey’: ‘I am totally speechless, my baby has gone but all I can do is cry. ’We will give my baby an almighty send off, the funeral of all funerals, he deserves the best.’
So poignant. Those of us who are parents must give thanks we never face challenges like this. I have no idea how I would react and never want to find out but I certainly send my sympathies to Mrs Robinson on the loss of her 4 year son, Jack.

Here is Yasmin Alibhai Brown, a resident writer on the Independent and much beloved by the BBC is here arguing for control of the press because … they give air time to UKIP. In her own words…the intolerance shown towards those who oppose the UK within the EU is incredible. I agree with her last sentence – we SHOULD be very worried that closet fascists seek to control the media.

Multiculturalists insist that we must NOT judge other cultures and that one is no matter than the other!
A man has been left without genitals and with three missing toes after a witch doctor told him that losing his body parts would make him rich. Chamangeni Zulu, from Malawi, has been hospitalised at Chipata General Hospital in Zambia, near the Malawi border, after he allowed the hyena to eat his manhood. Mr Zulu told the Times of Zambia yesterday that he was promised by a witch doctor that by sacrificing his body parts he would become rich.
Just as well there is no NHS out there, things would have been REALLY bad for Mr Zulu.
