Rapist; thief; liar; fraudster; bogus asylum seeker………Good enough!

British Citizenship & Passport eligibility >>> Tesco shopping list

There are more checks done on an online shopping list than those applied to the issue of a British Passport.

And just to make things worse, guess where the people work who decide who gets a British Passport?



Moreover, far too much reliance was placed on self-declaration by applicants so unless an applicant declared financial problems or that they had practised tax avoidance and benefit fraud, no other checks were made to verify this. In some cases, applicants who had very poor immigration histories over long periods, including during the qualifying period for naturalisation, were granted citizenship. The poor histories included having no leave to enter or remain for long periods, working illegally and absconding.

“The granting of British citizenship is a profoundly significant step for both the individual and the UK,” said Vine. “Therefore, I was concerned to find that nationality casework [part of UKVI] had not struck the right balance between this and the need to scrutinise applications thoroughly to ensure that decisions to grant British citizenship were evidence-based. UKVI guidance which allowed case workers to disregard evasion of immigration control during the qualifying period, where there was no other evidence to cast doubt on an applicant’s good character, had resulted in a ‘blanket approach’ being adopted.”


Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Probably the most over-quoted phrase in the entire English history of lawyers, legal stratagems, Security spooks and snoops is the term; ‘who watches the watchers?’

In Great Britain’s legal systems, which vary in details between the four Nations of our Isles, we have built up a trust, almost a standard, which states, in no uncertain terms, that if a person is accused of any crime, he is entitled to a fair hearing, in a properly-constituted court, either by a Magistrate or by a Judge. He is supposed to be represented by a lawyer, paid by Legal Aid if he or she has not enough funds to obtain such representation privately, and ALL discussions between the accused and legal representatives are, and always have been, privileged. That means that if ANY news, discussions, hints, gossip, interpretations, ANYTHING concerning the discussions between the lawyer or solicitor and the person they are representing, is barred from the prosecution.


Or so we have been led to believe.

So, after the revelations concerning the oversight and deliberate leaking of Defence discussions to the Security Service and M.I.5, the new caution given to all criminals, of whatever standing, nationality of gravity of crime will have been modified:-

“You do not have to say anything. But it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in Court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.”
The person cautioned is then asked “Do you understand?

You are also advised that recordings may be taken of everything that you say, copies of everything that is written may be made, and all may be given to the Crown Prosecution Service, The Security Services, and interested Parties to aid them in the charges brought against you!

why she was smirking quite so broadly.


It was of course for a total payout of  £Six Hundred & Seventy-Nine Thousands.


Smile for the camera, Peter.



Ah yes, I remember it well!

Well, I needed the different colours because  the damage and injuries are different for each leg, and it was difficult for me trying to remember and tell the medical people what occurred.

I was forced into a life of crime simply because my memory is so bad!


A measured response?

Yesterday evening, my daughter asked me what my opinions were on the huge search underway for that small boy who was reported as missing from his Scots home. I did not pause or attempt to maybe gather my thoughts together, I replied that it was a complete waste of time, the massive police presence and the search parties were deluded; as it was clear that a small boy simply could not have made his way out past two heavy doors from his home: the child was most probably dead, and the police should concentrate on the family, first and last.

I may sound cynical, in fact I probably am, but Police Scotland should never have organised or encouraged all the volunteers to join in the searches, as the probability of immediate family being involved in the death, as it turned out to be, was in the high 90%-ages.

Another tiny statistic has been written in the annals of this, the Nation which once claimed it cared, but now seems to be almost used to revealing the battered body of yet another victim of familial terror; probably brought on by drug abuse or parents who do not even deserve that title.

Mikaeel Kular is now out of reach of the person, probably his so-called mother, now in custody, possibly his father; as he is now in the ultimate ‘place of safety’; but hey, it is not all bad news, the small soft toy industry will probably see a boom in sales as silly people place ‘tokens’ all over the landscape; and the florists will be getting extra supplies in from overseas, as the ‘floral token’ industry  will also see a massive increase in sales!

A small child has been murdered, he should be laid to rest, but please, no more ribbons, or flowers, or candles, or cuddly bloody toys; please!


No sadness, but a celebration!

I urge you to visit the Obituary of an Engineer; a man who made, restored, repaired all manner of things, and rejoiced in all things steam-driven and mechanical.

One thing alone gives the viewer an advantage, the video in the Telegraph’s piece is not polluted with any advertising at all!

His summing-up of modern Britain is both succint and very very true:-


“Our fate is a microcosm of the country’s attitude to value-added manufacturing,” Minns reflected. “We make nothing, and we don’t care. We’re not even a nation of shopkeepers, we’re a nation of shelf-stackers — Napoleon must be screaming with laughter.”


R.I.P. to a great idea

By Mike Cunningham On October 30th, 2013 at 7:29 pm


In memory of a fine ideal, a great proposal which came to a sustainable fruition; a place of succour and of a mindset which sought to provide the dignity of work for those who could not stand as tall as the norm. Rendered useless and brought down by unthinking, penny-pinching bureaucrats and bloody politicians in search of the alleged saving  in an age of so-called austerity and invisible, illusory cuts.

There were true families who served in those workplaces, with the definition of ‘family’ as a group of people tied tightly by either blood or common ground, and many have worked, fruitfully and gainfully, for decades.

The last workplace of Remploy closed tonight!


Meat Market; or just modern bureaucracy?

When one reads of a child’s death at the hands of abusive and murderous ‘parents’, we usually shake our heads in mute incomprehension. I am the father of three adult kids, and within the term ‘father’ is held the truth that I am able to state that I helped bring forth into this world three fairly-well adjusted kids, and through a process of learning, adjustment and advice-osmosis; watched with pride as my two sons and a daughter navigated the pit- and prat-falls of youth to emerge as adults towards whom I can acknowledge with pride as mine own. They had the best of my life’s learning to lean upon, and I just cannot comprehend the grievous injuries inflicted upon defenceless young bodies which were similar in all respects to those three youngsters placed in my care.

When the ‘authorities’ finally take notice of neglect and violence inflicted on a child, the actions are usually the result of a ‘Case Conference’ where all interested parties have a chance to put their views forward, and often as not, the child or children are taken from parents deemed, in the opinion of course of the ‘experts’, as unfit to hold those children within their homes. They are then located with suitable ‘foster homes’, or sometimes group homes and many are placed for adoption.

Some commentators, such as the admirable Christopher Booker, have made their passions a crusade to fight against  the ‘Secret courts’ system, where children are taken at birth from mothers deemed ‘unfit’ on the say-so of social workers whose evidence is never questioned, but taken as gospel.

And where do many of these kids end up? They end up here,  in the forms displayed, as though their parents, many of whom are innocent of all crimes or allegations, can see their kids for one last time before they disappear into the anonymity of court-ordered adoption.


On this sunny Saturday morning……

By Mike Cunningham On July 13th, 2013 at 12:06 pm


….I was walking towards our local Tesco, intent on a newspaper, a couple of Danish pastries (heroin substitute) and a box of eggs. I noticed what seemed to be an ordinary family; father, mother and two small daughters moving towards the exit with their heavily-laden trolley, and watched with incredulity as they proceeded to attempt to push their Tesco trolley across the boundary between the car-park area and the outside road. They seemed puzzled by the fact that the trolley wheels had ‘locked up’; as they had crossed over an electronic signal line which does apply a brake to the front wheels. This device has been fitted to all supermarket trolley wheels for over ten-odd years now, primarily as a defence against the theft of trolleys which, once having transported the shopping to home, were dumped by those same lazy thieves as ‘surplus to their requirements’.

My incredulity was caused by the existence of a large Tesco signboard sited less than five feet away from the exit which stated “Warning, Trolley wheels will lock up if taken passed this point”!

Now the questions which must be asked are as follows:-

  • Were they unable to read or understand the clear English of the warning notice?
  • Did they think that the warning notice didn’t somehow apply to them?
  • Were they collectively too bloody stupid for words?

I lean towards the third query, as the body language of the heavily-tattooed man stated as he stood back, staring at the recalcitrant and stubbornly-immobile trolley, scratching his head as he realised he had to carry all his shopping, inclusive of four twelve-packs of lager, back to wherever they lived.

Good grief.

An illegal immigrant has been sent to jail and told he must serve his sentence in Britain after he was caught trying to leave the UK and go home to look after his mother.

Albi Shabanaj was stopped by border guards as he tried to exit the country through the Channel Tunnel on his way back to Albania.

The 24-year-old was found to have fake Greek identification papers which he had bought during time working in the EU before sneaking into the UK.

So he gets in without any ID, but the jig is up when he’s checked on he way out. Now he’s banged up for a year. Government is truly insane. Here’s an idea: maybe these “border” guards should turn around and check the ones they seem to wave through without a glance. Here’s another thought: he’ll never leave. Once he’s out of chokey the parasite lawyers will sign him up for a human rights challenge, and we know how they go.
