and The Sun rises to the occasion

By Mike Cunningham On June 22nd, 2015 at 7:42 pm

I am no fan of the Sun newspaper, I consider its editorial and reader policies to be aimed at the lowest common denominator possible; with the extra addition of the daily foray into mental masturbation. Sport, tits, ‘Slebs’ gossip, they’re all in the pages which I normally consider unfit to wrap chips in. But, very occasionally, they produce a small, pure gem which deserves a wider, more discerning and educated audience: especially in view of the ongoing charade of the Labour leadership.

The Sun, with the active participation of Guido as cheerleader, has produced, (without paywall) a forensic piece with specific regard to the rule of Burnham when he was Secretary of State for Health, in the good old days before Stafford, along with its hospital, became truly toxic.

Sir Ian Kennedy, chairman of the Healthcare Commission which regulated NHS care standards at the time, said the estimated 1,200 needless deaths in four years constituted the most shocking scandal he had investigated.

Yet not a single public sector employee was properly held to account and scores of legal challenges have been launched by patients’ families.

So, just for a change, read The Sun, when it produces news, and concentrated comment: like newspapers should always do!


Nothing to see here; move along, please!

These men are all accused of serious sexual offences against young girls.

Do ATW readers note anything which these nine men have in common? Apart from the proximity of their addresses?

Ah, Labour’s Ed Balls, the man who was such a close adviser to Gordon Brown as he racked unprecedented national debt, has a big idea. He is going to guarantee a job for the long-term unemployed, if his party is re-elected.


Shadow chancellor Ed Balls said the scheme would be paid for by restricting the tax relief on pensions for those earning over £150,000 a year, The party has pledged £1bn to enable employers to meet the cost of hiring the 130,000 people who have been out of work for more than two-years. But the Treasury says Labour is trying to spend the same money twice. It says Mr Balls had already earmarked cuts in pension tax relief to reverse austerity measures.

Look, that is but a minor detail to an economic  visionary such as Balls. In fact, the idea of punishing the “wealthy” by restricting their pension provision is surely an extra bonus for determined wealth re-distributors such as Balls!

Labour has one purpose and one purpose only. To say whatever it takes to persuade voters to put them back in power in 2015.

If this means denying austerity, fine. If this means conjuring up non-jobs and introducing a little class warfare, fine.

Labour all but bankrupted the UK and now the same people are back with solemn faces, doe eyes and a big “trust me” look on their faces.

I believe the electorate is stupid enough to bring them back to finish the job they started – the destruction of the UK. Magic jobs will convince some people to vote for them.

Incredibly, the political party that presided over THIS are back in the lead in the opinion polls;

The immigration boom under Labour led to the face of Britain changing faster than any major nation except Italy, a study by an Oxford University think tank revealed. During the five-year peak of the influx, the UK’s migrant population soared by 22 per cent – double the average of G8 countries, figures from the Migration Observatory show. Over the past two decades, Britain’s foreign-born population has increased from 3.8million – or 7 per cent of the total population – in 1993 to almost 7million, or 12 per cent per cent in 2010.

Labour set out to change Britain forever, and it has partly succeeded. The demographic changes underway will have even more profound effects in twenty years time. Should Labour return to power, put there by those prepared to keep swallowing Labour lies, it may well finish this country.

The scale of Labour’s wickedness is laid bare:

  • Immigrant population soared by 22% during Labour’s open door policy
  • During past two decades number of foreign-born residents has doubled

The foul Labour regime’s declared intent to “rub the Right’s nose in diversity” was nothing less than ethnic and cultural war against the indigenous people of our islands, one which will result in a social catastrophe unless and until reversed. I sincerely look forward to the day we begin to reverse what they did against us and seeing the perpetrators stand accused in the dock for their evil crimes.

Opposition: Harriet Harman has significantly hardened the Labour position on the austerity measures in a letter to Communities Secretary Eric Pickles

Few people with even a modicum of common sense would fail to appreciate the urgent need for the UK Government to reduce the colossal DEBT which Labour had built up during its years in power. Just to put this in perspective, as Labour approached it’s final year in power in 2010 the UK  was the most indebted developed country in the world. That’s pretty damning evidence that some cut backs are pretty essential. But there is one group who deny the need for ANY cuts. It’s name? – Labour.

Labour now opposes every  public sector cut being made. The party’s deputy leader Harriet Harman significantly hardens Labour’s position on austerity measures to rein in the enormous budget deficit left by the last government. Miss Harman, writing to Communities Secretary Eric Pickles, protests that charities and voluntary organisations are being hit by ‘your Government’s unfair and unnecessary austerity drive’. She goes on to urge Mr Pickles: ‘The Government must change course before it  is too late.’

The incredible recklessness and sheer arrogance on display by Harman here is stunning. HER Government ran up this huge public debt but now she refuses to accept ANY cut to that public debt. In other words she wants to see Britain go the way of Greece.

We all know that Labour’s core vote is public sector workers and those on Welfare and that she is of course politiking but  it shows her profound contempt for our intelligence that she dares advocate maintaining our huge debt as the way to ease out debt. Could anyone be so economically ignorant? 

Is it possible that Labour actually wants to see the UK brought to its knees, so fiscally weakened that it must give up even the pretence of national fiscal sovereignty and allow the EU to take us over, completely? I believe that many in Labour would see this as a desirable outcome which makes me consider them to be the enemy of the British people. And yet around one third of the British people support them which makes me wonder what sort of Nation, or Vassal State, we have become?

The Guardian newspaper is on its uppers:

On Thursday, Guardian News and Media (GNM) announced that The Guardian and its sister paper, The Observer, had lost £33m in cash terms last year after failing to staunch losses that ran to £34.4m the year before. Unaudited results for the year ending 31 March showed that GNM’s revenues, fell to £198m last year compared with £221m the year before […]

Andrew Miller, the chief executive of GNM’s parent company, Guardian Media Group (GMG), warned staff in a series of meetings this week that the group could run out of cash in three to five years if he does not make radical changes, which could include up to 175 redundancies.

This is such terrible, terrible news. Well, it’s terrible for someone but I’ve just popped another umbrella in my beer. To think that a prime HQ of the Leftist power elite, commies, Fabians, terror supporters and other riff-raff might be going down the gurgler is cheering me no end. Hey, maybe we’re not killing gaia fast for The Guardian to survive. If we bought more polluting cars the paper might be in a healthier state.

“What are you talking about Pete?” I hear you ask.

What I mean is that The Guardian, home of Goerge Monbiot and a chief promoter of all things enviroloony is subsidised with the profits from … Auto Trader. Oh the irony, oh the towering hypocrisy of routinely demonising the selfish destructiveness of driving a car while taking white can man’s shilling. Another great subsidy comes from the working man because The Guardian is the state’s choice of advertiser for thousands of economy-killing government jobs each week. Even so, it’s looking grim. It’s interesting to see that whilst more debt and spending is the Left wing solution when it’s someone else’s money, at The Guardian 300 jobs have gone already in what would be the act of an ideological maniac if he was spending the taxpayer’s money.

Let’s be really clear about one thing; the last Labour government deliberately embarked on a spending free it KNEW would cause us massive financial problems. The huge national debt was not an accident, it was an objective, an achievement. Just think about this;

A confidential document presented to the Cabinet in January 2006 asks: “We’ve spent all this money, but what have we got for it?” It warns that the efficiency of the public sector needed to improve rapidly and insisted that “spending growth will slow”. The document drafted by civil servants also says that “ineffective spending” must be “closed down”. However, Gordon Brown discarded the advice and embarked on a £90 billion increase in spending when he became prime minister. The expenditure meant that the economy was left facing a record deficit as the effects of the recession were felt.

This reckless Gordon Brown is the same man who claimed he had saved the world economy and who has been seeking a senior role in the IMF. This reckless Gordon Brown is the same man who liked to pretend being fiscally prudent was his guiding star. At Gordon Brown’s side throughout this years of wilful financial destruction was the odious Ed Balls. These papers come his personal office though he now seeks to distance himself from the revelations, unsurprisingly. The thing that I found most surprising is that even though it is obvious that Labour were financially profligate in a way which pushed us to economic meltdown, a large chuck of voters would like to see then  BACK in power. Sedated by bread and circuses, it appears that our leftist electorate would prefer to follow the example of Greece and keep on spending what we do not have, and therefore Labour will always be their Party of choice.

Poor Boy!

By Mike Cunningham On March 23rd, 2011 at 12:16 am

When I was a small boy, I saw the end of the Second World War. Obviously, because I was only five years of age, that momentous happening passed me by. But we saw my father return from the Army, and suddenly we were a family once more. We weren’t rich, we saw tight times, but we had a regular wage coming through the door, and we never lacked for the basics.

True, I inherited my brother’s shirts as he grew out of them, but we always made do, and we always got by. As we grew up, we were able to wear our school blazers and uniforms, we had whatever was required. In other words, our parents saw that we grew up in a British tradition, of knowing that whatever we had came from hard work, and nothing came from nothing.

Many of our schoolfriends were not so lucky in their lives. I remember one day two of the boys in my class were absent; and two days later they returned. The explanation was simple, they had no shoes, so they had to wait until their parents could afford new shoes.  Others were late to school, because they had to walk, not having the pennies for the bus fare.

Some of my schoolmates ate all their school dinners, every day.  When I tell you that the food served up at school lunchtimes was possibly the most tasteless concotion known to man, that gives you some idea of the reality of the previous sentence. That school dinner was probably the only solid nutritional meal that they would see all day.

The truth was simple, that there wasn’t the money in those households to stretch to extra shoes, or bus-fares; or extra food on the table. That, my friends, is to be poor! That is a definition of poverty! Not to be able to heat your home, or properly clothe or feed your children!

The Child Poverty Act 2010 is neither definition, reality or fact. There are no poor people in Britain, not with the huge back-up of Social Security benefits available at the stroke of a pen or the ‘click’ of a mouse. There are feckless people aplenty, there are those who don’t use their benefits wisely; and there are those who do not deserve the very title of parent, but all of those people do not live and never have have lived, for a very long time, in any sort of poverty; except the poverty of the mind!

Its for your own good!

We, as a Nation, should have become accustomed to the weirder and deceitful ways of this present government. I give you a few ‘for instances’


  • As a result of the terror bombing attacks on London, the Labour bunch rushed through various anti-terror legislative Acts. You may not be surprised to hear that the main effect of these laws, apart from having ‘Control Orders’ struck down by the courts, is that any photographer may be arrested if he even thinks about photographing any uniformed clown!
  • Anti-Social Behaviour orders were hailed by this Government as a measured response to youths who terrorised neighbourhoods. Do you think that this particular proposed ASBO was warranted? Or even this one?
  • The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 allows surveillance by just about every local council and national civil servant to be undertaken for the purposes of intercepting and preventing would-be terrorists from harming or killing British people. The wide use of these ‘catch-all’ powers have so far been used by Local Councils to find out how bins are being placed, or parents being placed under video surveillance to establish if they are able to register their children for a particular school.
  • Traffic cameras, allegedly placed for ‘Accident prevention’, are being used to prosecute parking and traffic offences.


I could go on and on, but I hope that you get the picture; laws established for a particular purpose, are broadened and used against law-abiding British people because we are a soft target!

The latest example has been disclosed here, under regulations to be made Law within a few weeks, which will allow ANY letter, parcel or packet sent or received within the borders of this United Kingdom, to be opened without warning or agreement, by either H.M. Customs, or any member of the Royal Mail Postal Service.

Last time I read about that sort of activity was in East Germany, under the steadfast gaze of the STASI!
