Seen this?

Illegal immigrants from more than 80 countries have complained about being served food that is too British as they await deportation. Nearly three quarters of the 575 men housed at one removal centre – half of which have criminal convictions – told inspectors they were not happy with the food.

Rather than traditional prison fare such as shepherd’s pie or fish and chips, the Verne Immigration Removal Centre in Dorset has now been told to serve up ‘more culturally diverse’ dishes in an effort to cater to the huge range of nationalities.

The HM Chief Inspector of Prisons report published last month also said the English language menu should be printed in a range of dialects.

The arrogance is quite incredible, as is the ingratitude. But worse than that is the fact that it is HM Chief Inspector of Prisons that is driving this fawning to thee criminals.

Well, this.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has apologised for saying in 2003 that IRA members should be “honoured”. The MP, appointed by new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, said the comments had clearly caused offence and apologised “from the bottom of my heart”. Speaking on BBC Question Time, he said he had been trying to give both sides of the conflict a way to lay down arms with “some form of dignity”.

Total nonsense. His comments were made in 2003. The Belfast Agreement was five years old at that point.

McDonnell went on to say that he was anxious to ensure that the IRA did not split. As you know, it did. It became the Continuity IRA, the REAL IRA, the “I can’t believe it’s not the IRA”  – OH, and it kept on killing. On every front the facts prove him wrong.

McDonnell is very sorry. For himself. No pass here.

Death Rattle at NY Daily News

UNITED STATES - AUGUST 17:  Front page of the Daily News dated Aug. 17, 1977 , Headline: ELVIS PRESLEY DIES AT 42, Subhead: Singer Suffers Heart Attack,  (Photo by NY Daily News Archive via Getty Images)

There was a bloodbath at the NY Daily News yesterday. Three dozen newsroom staff were let go. The sports section was hit particularly hard – they lost the well respected Mike Lupica and Bill Madden, a long time baseball writer, who serves on the committee that helped select candidates for the Baseball Hall of Fame.

These are very hard days for newspapers. The internet ” stole ” a huge chunk of their advertising business, and advertising has always been how most papers made a profit. Before that, TV stole some of their audience and revenues.

But also, let’s face it, very many people do not read the news at all anymore – even that that a tabloid like the NYDN offered. And those that do ” read ” often skim more than read, and the internet can work fine for that. Especially if you think that one writer is as good as any other, that one newspaper or worse still, that a news aggregator is as good as a quality newspaper.

The NY Daily News used to rule NYC and its suburbs. Back in 1947, the circulation was 2.4 million during the week, 4.7 million on a Sunday.

It’s down 80% from that now.

The New York Daily News in its prime wasn’t all great journalism by any means. It was a workingman’s paper that covered local, national and international news, and which had a really good sports section. They even had a foreign correspondent in London for a time, if you can believe that.

I used to deliver the NY Daily News to private houses as a young teenager, toting the papers in a cloth carrier bag. The bag was really heavy at the beginning of the route, and got lighter with each delivery.

There would be large stacks of the advertising packed Daily News and NY Times at the news stand on a Sunday, or the night before when the first edition came out.

The current NYDN is increasingly an internet vehicle that doesn’t cover local or other news well at all. There’s a lot of stories about junk celebrities. I don’t see it being around five years from now.

It, like most newspapers is going away, quickly, and all of us are the loser.

Well it’s not only ISIS.

A Saudi teenager is facing death by crucifixion in his home country of Saudi Arabia on charges activists say are politically motivated.

We’re not even talking a conviction for murder here.

In 2012, Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, then 17, was arrested in the country’s Qatif province on reportedly shaky charges of illegal protesting and gun possession, the International Business Times reported Wednesday. There was never any evidence to support the guns charge.

Since King Salman plomped his fat arse on the throne, he’s shaken hands with Cameron, Prince Charles, President Holland and President Obama, and they’re just the ones I can remember off the top of my head. Saudi Arabia has also accelerated executions, which are usually done by head chopping after a dodgy trial.

It’s a funny old world. When salafists act out of turn they’re the worst thing ever. When they can pump money out of the ground and buy lots of Western planes and guns, the great and good can’t pucker up quick enough. Well I don’t care how much oil Saudi floats on or how much they spend on arms, and no-one will ever convince me that they’re any different from their ISIS chums.

My wife’s mother has passed. She survived Breast Cancer, a quadruple bypass, Alzheimer’s, and 93 years on this earth. A fine woman of English/Irish heritage. May she be folded in the arms of peace.

No comments necessary, but if you can give a kind thought or prayer for a woman filled with vim and vigor her whole life it would be appreciated.

The BBC can’t pretend to not notice that just 1-in-5 of the immigrants currently battling all over Serbia, Croatia and Hungary are Syrian, because it’s their own Mark Urban who brings us the numbers –

While the tragedy of those fleeing Syria’s terrible civil war has caught the popular imagination, such people formed just 20.1% of those seeking asylum in Germany from January to August 2015.

If you add together the Balkan arrivals (from Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, and Macedonia) they amount to twice that, 40.2%. The figures for those granted refuge are quite different because many of the applications from Balkan countries are rejected.

It’s hard to avoid the conclusion that tens of thousands of people from relatively peaceful countries have joined the trek to Germany, which is seen as one of the most desirable places in Europe to live.

To put it more bluntly: they are taking advantage of and increasing this crisis. Statistics compiled by the German authorities show that while the number of Syrians went up by 177% during the first nine months of 2015 (compared with the same period last year), the rise from Albania was 631%.

I thought Blair and Clinton spent mountains of our cash making the Balkans safe some time ago. At least we can dispense with the idea that they’re all “refugees” now, yes liberals?

Urban is wrong in suggesting that “the tragedy of those fleeing Syria’s terrible civil war has caught the popular imagination”, of course, but then he’s looking through the Marxist BBC prism. The wider British public sympathises and wishes genuine refugees a better life, but not here, not in our towns and not on our account.

It’s no relief either that a large chunk of this swarm is Balkan Man. There are still plenty of muslims there and plenty of vicious gangsters, particularly Kosovan. As well as rapes, Germans are about to see rapid increases in robberies, drugs and people smuggling, particularly of young females.

Ironically it’s Urban who has exposed the BBC’s propaganda. For weeks, its scores of reporters have found only Syrian mothers and children moving north. No BBC report is complete without a tearful 5 year old Syrian girl asking for help and shelter. It’s amazing the work they must have put in to find them all in among the army of Balkan men in their 20s and 30s, and yet this is the first mention on any BBC platform that I’ve seen of the true situation.

You’d think that the world’s foremost purveyor of “refugee” propaganda will now have to change its tune, but I wouldn’t bet on it even with someone else’s money.

If you want to point to a time when the US went utterly overboard on the pretense of mass Islamophobia it has to be the story of Ahmed Mohamed, a 14 year old arrested in Texas because of a clock he brought to school.  Every Racial Grievance agitator from the Offended-In-Chief President to the usual social media suspects railed against this alleged example of intolerance.  Lets visit the facts, shall we?

The teenager brought a device to school which he claims was a clock he made.  Young Thomas Edison?  I don’t think so.  It will come out that this was a stunt (orchestrated I believe by his father who has previously been engaged in publicity relating to anti-Muslim issues)  An ultimately harmless device?  Yes, after it was correctly confiscated and examined.  Should schools, in the age of terrorism and school shootings take precautions, absolutely.  Err on the side of investigation I say.  Should he have been handcuffed, probably not.  Should he have been questioned – absolutely.

Muslim students go to school every day in the US without incident.  In New York City we have two days off the school calendar in observation of their holiday.  His family immigrated here and have been successful in business.  They practice their faith freely.  To pretend that an overzealous investigation turns him into one of the Scottsboro Boys and the nation into a hotbed of anti-Muslim sentiment is a calculated falsehood.

Hungary is currently being demonised by the likes of the UN because it is daring to enforce its borders. What a disgrace. This is further evidence that the likes of the UN and EU are conspiring to transform the decaying carcass of Old Europe into Dar al Islam and is being quite blatant about it.
