Partisan is, as Partisan does

When the level, non-partisan, and genuinely sympathetic report regarding the allegations of serial torture from Senator Feinstein’s committee was published (Sorry about the sarcasm) the usual suspects collectively cleared their throats, and unanimously condemned this bunch of criminals masquerading as employees of the CIA; for their terrible and illegal approach towards people whose only real ambition in their lives was to kill Americans. I would have thought that the first thing any committee, intent upon carving a way through the lies and serial attempts at covering up the truth about the nasty things which were alleged to have been done to these men, all of whom were seemingly arrested whilst on holiday in terror-strewn lands, would have been to interrogate the CIA leaders, ex-leaders and CIA staff who were engaged in these alleged acts of torture.

The rebuttal, shown on the website, is fairly damning to the Majority report, produced without a single interview from any senior or ex-senior CIA staffer. Reading through a small selection of rebuttal documents shows that both the White House and the Administration were briefed, aware, and approved of the techniques used to gain intelligence about people who were planning to kill Americans.

I applaud the CIA for their stance, but of course fully expect the Obama Administration to condemn the CIA, because after all, those nasty Republicans knew what was being done in America’s name, and all those orange jump-suit detainees were all completely innocent; well nearly all, except possibly one or even two bad apples, and they were picked up by mistake, possibly on jay-walking charges.

………..do I detect a thin sliver of admiration when considering David Cameron. After all he brought in the gross and thoroughly perverted Same-Sex Marriage farrago, and now pushing the line that all Faith Schools should support f***king Gay Marriage and Gay Sex; as well as continually lying to us when stating that the whole Nation needed a short sharp dose of ‘Austerity’ under the Chancellor’s plan, so as to decrease the massive Deficit in public spending/borrowing, and then finally having to admit that we are borrowing literally Billions more than we did five-odd years ago. He also throws Billions more of our ‘borrowed money’ in Overseas Aid, which of course is a code-word for handing it over to totally corrupt foreigners, who then stash that cash in their Swiss bank accounts.

But I digress; on to that sliver of admiration. Remember when he was challenged to be photographed in that ‘Feminist Tee-shirt’, and, unlike Millipede and Clegg the Cnut, declined to accept the challenge? Seems as though ‘Our Dave’ dodged the bullet for once, as those Tee-shirts have a dark and stealthy past.

Well, it has emerged that those same Tee-shirts, sold by Whistles for £45.00 apiece, were manufactured by virtual slave labour in a sweat-shop in Mauritius owned by Mauritian entrepreneur Francois Woo, boss of CMT. CMT has an annual turnover of £125 million. It produces 40 million T-shirts a year for clients including Topshop, Next and Urban Outfitters.It employs 13,000 staff at its factories and about 4,500, all foreign, are housed on site. Migrants come from countries including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam.

There are around 2,800 female machinists. Workers are expected to produce around 50 shirts a day and face discipline if they do not reach their target.

Mr Woo said: ‘The Mauritian government has set out a minimum wage that we must pay and we abide by their rules.

‘I am like a parent to the workers. They are free to come and go as they please but if they go out on a weeknight I will not be happy because then they will turn up for work the next day hungover. If people didn’t want to work for us then they don’t have to, nobody is forcing them. If they have the chance to earn more somewhere else then they should go elsewhere.

See what I mean, a real Samaritan, ain’t he?

But seriously well done to Dave, probably because he can see a trap coming, especially if Cleggy and Millipede had already signed up!

“pushing the line that all Faith Schools should support f***king Gay Marriage and Gay Sex;”

I would really like to be a fly on the wall when Stormont, and esp[ecially the DUP; debates the curriculum requirements for that little lot!

The Germans would have a word for it.

When the Great Fire of 1666 razed much of inner London to the ground, Sir Christopher Wren piloted a Bill through Parliament which banned wooden-framed buildings from being built in London, and this Act remained in force for over three hundred years, A plan to by-pass this Act, partly because, if the buildings used wood, they would help combat ‘CLIMATE CHANGE and GLOBAL WARMING‘, backed heavily by the UK Timber Frame association, sellers of, so help me, Wooden Framed Buildings got through, partly because there was a test burn, in a large hangar, of a test-built six-storey buiding, which was easily extinguished by firemen. What was not mentioned, in the building report, was the fact that the fire arose again in the smouldering timbers, and the whole building was consumed by fire!

Councils throughout England have no idea of the numbers of wooden-framed buildings erected since the Act was by-passed!

Fast forward to September 15th, when the nearly-complete Nottingham University Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry burned to the ground in a huge fire, which unfortunately proved, once more, that Sir Christopher Wren was right all along. The entire building, funded by a donation from GlaxoSmithKline, costing some £15 million  had been erected according to the most rigorous environmental principles, made with a wooden frame and other “sustainable” materials, and powered with “renewable” energy, so that the structure could remain “carbon neutral” throughout its lifetime. Unfortunately, the fire-prevention and alarm systems were either still being installed, or not; instead of being the first systems to be enforced on site, especially as it was a WOODEN BUILDING;  and as WOOD CATCHES FIRE RATHER EASILY, any Engineer would have told them that their first priority would be to protect a building, finished or not, which, being entirely of wood, would always BE A RISK!

Revisionist Tripe!

Imagine you are a very successful  ‘Pop Singer’ and you have sourced your songs, your material from not only your own mind, but from friends and from other writers and singers.

You are content that you have done everything by the ‘book’ when making your records, and your fans have responded by making you very wealthy.

Then; Disaster. Your records are ‘soiled‘ by association with a paedophile pervert named Rolf Harris.

And then you get this:-

One fan tweeted: “I feel they (the songs) have now been soiled, and I would like the chance to listen to these tracks without the input of Rolf Harris. “Maybe Kate will do this in future, she has been an avid supporter of childrens’ charities here in the UK (NSPCC springs to mind) so she may want to do this.”

Another added: “Rolf Harris made a significant contribution to The Painter’s Link and every time that track officially down loaded, Kate (via her companies) profits from it. That has to a very unwelcome association for Kate. Although she clearly wasn’t aware of Rolf’s criminal activity at the time the recording was made, she must be well aware of it now.”

 

Knowing very little about modern music, but a great deal about ‘pressure politics’, I ask the question: Should she change? Hell; No!

But we didn’t understand; Sob, sniff; boo-hoo!

Couple of things in this article about two incredibly stupid and greedy women which need correcting, as far as I am concerned. The pair of them did not agree to plead guilty on the smuggling charge; they were guilty, they were actually caught with the drugs in their cases. They changed their pleas to ‘guilty’ in the hope that they would get a reduced sentence. Fortunately, the Peruvians are smarter than these two would-be ‘glitz-kids’, and hopefully will slam each of them with the maximum of fifteen years.

They should have thought through the possibilities of either making some ‘easy money’ running a small car-load of deadly poisons into Europe, or doing what the rest of us boring, law-abiding, sober, hard-working, but essentially free people would be doing right about now, which is not worrying about whether we will survive a fifteen-year stretch in a South American prison.

 

So; typical politician!

Cheryl Gillan stated that she was so opposed to the whole idea of HS2 line, whether it ran through her constituency or not.

She stated ““If the project goes ahead, I would resign the whip unless the Prime Minister tells me he would allow me to vote against it. When I was appointed to the cabinet, the Prime Minister knew of my opposition to this.”

 

So I wonder why we are reading that she has sold her constituency home, rather than resigning from her lucrative well-paid position in the Cabinet?

THE BBC, IN HIS OWN WORDS

By Pete Moore On November 24th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

You may have seen that Climategate II has unfolded, a further release of global warmenist emails by a public spirited soul. One is particularly interesting, from Phil Kirby, erstwhile BBC Environment Correspondent, to Phil Jones of the infamous Climate Research Unit. As WUWT notes, clearly there is an incestuous relationship between the BBC and the tight knit world of climate science:

“Yes, glad you stopped this — I was sent it too, and decided to spike it without more ado as pure stream-of-consciousness rubbish. I can well understand your unhappiness at our running the other piece. But we are constantly being savaged by the loonies for not giving them any coverage at all, especially as you say with the COP in the offing, and being the objective impartial (ho ho) BBC that we are, there is an expectation in some quarters that we will every now and then let them say something. I hope though that the weight of our coverage makes it clear that we think they are talking through their hats.”

Talk about having your illusions shattered. There we are, basking in the warmth of knowing that depsite having to pay the state for permission to own a TV, at least we were getting the finest, the most impartial news and information curtesy of ‘Auntie Beeb’, when along comes an insider to whip away that comfort blanket.

Well, that might apply to some, but I stopped paying that literal racket years ago.

You too can be paranoid!

When the Coalition Government, fronted by ‘smily Dave’, and backed of course by Clegg, Osbourne and all the other leeches, presented their ‘Deficit Reduction’ plan; I had literally no idea that I would find myself on the ‘Front Line’!

Its only words,

So what part of the phrase  ‘Flood Plain’ didn’t you understand?

 

Update:

Just checked on the Dakota Dunes Website, and (I kid you not) the developers are promising not to be billing the third quarter assessments.

Now ain’t that really magnanimous????

 

Now this isn’t really gonna’ hurt!!

Listening on my portable radio/player thingy to the Today programme, whilst walking on a treadmill at the gym; but nearly lost my footing as I listened to this young female berk discuss how HENS had feelings too. She described how hens reacted when their chicks had hot air blown over their down, and how this was then monitored by means of electrodes attached to the hens’ bodies. She stated that the results of the experiments indicated that hens can ‘empathise’, and it can be shown that birds do indeed have cognitive feelings, especially towards their own young; and can also feel pain!

I also felt pain as I heard the report broadcast, as I too have feelings, but my feelings are of an entirely different class to those of the researcher. I felt anger, I felt extreme annoyance, and I also felt a keen desire to go on the rampage and do great harm to all those who try and push  their stupid, silly and totally baloney ideas upon us in Britain.

After chicks  and hens, what next? Calves, heifers? Exeter deer? Where do these clowns get their ideas from?

Some simpering bloody researcher gets up on her eco-woolly-green-peacenik ridden backside, and tells everyone that hens and chickens have feelings, and we should respect all beings because they might have feelings too! Next thing they’ll be looking for is a time space in an abbatoir so that just before the bull, heifer or cow is stunned and slaughtered, the abbatoir man will have to look into the animal’s eyes, put his arm around the poor bloody animal’s neck, and sobbingly state that he doesn’t really want to do this, but the meat is needed, and it won’t hurt much because the stun bolt is really quick; and then; SLAM!

Oh but he won’t be able to do the kind, and humane, and sweet thing all the time, especially if he works in a HALAL slaugherhouse, because he’d be lying to the heifer if he said it wasn’t going to last a long time, because immediately after he prays to allah, he takes a long knife and slits the animal’s throat, and then lets it bleed to death without any intervention to stop the nerves reacting as they would normally do! So the Bristol researcher is going to have to come up with an alternative for the muslims, because they won’t stop killing their meat in their fashion, and the Jews won’t either!
