rhys203.jpgLet’s deal with the shocking murder of an 11 year old boy shot on his way back home from playing football with his friends in Liverpool. A witness said three shots were fired by a youth, with his face covered by a hood, who rode past on a BMX bicycle. Just think instead of a drive by we have a pedal-by – resulting in this child’s death.

I notice the local Chief Constable has asked those "in local gangs" to come forward with whatever information they may, and I see that a 14yr old and an 18yr old have been arrested. But what sort of culture produces teenage assassins? What sort of society tolerates armed teen-age gangs? I know we’ve been covering quite a few of these stories on ATW and it may seem perhaps a bit repetitious but the harsh truth is that the feral brutality that now rules our streets has to confronted and beaten down. Parents need to be made to assume full legal responsibility for their children and we need to reassert the rule of law everywhere. This will not happen without momentous political change and we live in a current era where rather like the 1970’s there is little will from the political class to do anything. But out of the depths of the 1970’s came Margaret Thatcher and we must hope that the time is now ready for a new political leader with vision and determination to emerge who wants to make our streets safe again for 11 year olds to play football without the fear of being shot dead. 

Paul Weston Goes Drinking

By ATWadmin On August 22nd, 2007 at 7:37 pm

Paul Weston writes to tell us of a recent experience in a pub with a singularly appropriate name:

Drinking in my local pub last week – The Saracens Head – I was surprised to overhear an animated discussion revolving around the subject of one Frederick (Freddie to his friends) Thielemans.

As my fellow drinkers are, in the main, horny-handed sons of the soil, I had naturally assumed they would not be entirely au fait with the latest developments vis-à-vis European politics.

But they soon put me right. One point, repeatedly raised by a Charles Montgomery Martel (Mad Monty Martel, as he is known in the Saracens Head and the nearby Bigot’s Arms) was how extraordinarily ugly mayor Thielemans is.

I must confess that Freddie’s physical failings had until that moment quite passed me by, but with a dextrous flick of a hand more suited to the daily relief of cows, Mad Monty conjured a dog eared photograph from his corduroy pocket of none other than mayor Thielemans himself!

Good Lord, I murmured to myself, as heads craned to glimpse this quite revolting image, Mad Monty is absolutely right, mayor Thielemans really is quite hideously ugly, how could I possibly not have noticed this before?

Freddy%20Thielemans.jpg With an appalled fascination, we slowly passed the photograph around, shaking our heads more in sorrow than anger. One local farmer, a breeder of the scarcely known pig variety “Brusellius Horriblius” was so sickened he bought up an entire pint of Bitter and Twisted, the local brew much favoured in this part of the world.

Once Mad Monty had dried off his photograph, an eerie calm settled across the pub. The silence one may have heard when the guns fell silent during the war, or a traumatized victim perhaps feels upon receiving his medication.

Suddenly, a stentorian voice, more suited to bringing sheep dogs to heel on those desolate windswept moors nearby, abruptly crashed through the shaken and shocked pub.

“Y’ere” it bellowed, “an I’ll tell ee summat else, e’s a roight fat fookin baastard an’all!”

As I sprang to reappraise yet another overlooked aspect of mayor Thielemans, I realised that my natural inquisitiveness, or thirst for knowledge, had overcome the deference normally shown to ageing farmers, and had pushed ahead of the oldest man in the pub.

I made my apologies, but he waved them away. “No, no,” he said, “I really can’t take any more. You go ahead, take a gander, and then describe it to me, but gentle mind!” He tapped his chest a couple of times, implying that at his age, one shock per day is more than adequate.

When I looked again at the still moist photograph, I had to hit myself on the head at my lack of visual cognisance! How could I have missed this one? Not only is mayor Thielemans hideously ugly, he is also massively – if not monstrously – fat.

Well, after that, the evening turned into something of a haze. Whether it was the alcohol or some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder, I know not. All I can really remember is the final point made by Mad Monty; which bought into doubt mayor Thielemans sexuality.

Now, it is not for me to question the sexuality of the roly-poly mayor of Brussels . As far as I am concerned, if he is heterosexual, then that is his business, and his business alone. I cautioned my fellow drinkers on the litigious dangers in alluding to the heterosexuality of socialist mayors. I am sure some of them are, I explained to them, but you simply cannot tar them all with the same brush. A great many of them go home every night to nubile young Brazilian boys, just as every self respecting socialist mayor is expected to do.

Mad Monty then explained why he had a photograph of Fat Freddie in his pocket. It turns out that on some EU farmers junket to Brussels in the 90’s, he had got very drunk, gate crashed a lesbian wedding ceremony for German MEP Lissy Groner and her unnamed girlfriend (did Ms Groner take the girlfriends name I wonder?) and found none other than Fat Freddie Thielemans conducting the ceremony.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, photos were taken, hence his possession of the damp, but still shockable picture in his pocket. I asked him why he carried out around with him, to which he replied that he used it a means of inducing labour in recalcitrant cows when all else had failed.

“Better the old bitch die of shock, than a calf die inside her” as he so eloquently put it.

Returning to mayor Thielemans sexuality for a moment, I have recently been given a clipped out article from a very hungover Mad Monty, which suggests that Fat Freddie may not be heterosexual after all. According to the Brussels Evening Echo, an unattractive, corpulent individual, in possession of a luxuriant moustache, was spotted rooting around in the back alleys of the adolescent (built only fifteen years ago) Arab Quarter of downtown Brussels, red faced, sweating profusely and singing the anthem to the Red Flag.

This may or may not have been mayor Thielemans, and I would like to state, quite unequivocally, that to my mind, unpalatable though it may be, I am convinced he is heterosexual.

Mayor Thielemans is many things: The charge of being hideously ugly would have a difficult defence in a court of law, as would monstrously fat, or even viciously treacherous. But I do think we need to draw a line somewhere, and that somewhere is his sexual proclivity, be it procreative or passive. After all, if it turned out that he was indeed homosexual, what would his local voters make of that?

Given his varied physical problems, I think the least we can do is to maintain that mayor Thielemans is heterosexual, no matter what evidence comes to light in the coming months. I sho
uld hate to think of the lovely Freddie, swaying gently by his feet from a lamppost in years to come, surrounded by swarthy men loosing their Kalashnikovs into the air, as small boys with long memories hit his sad, podgy face with slippers, his magnificent moustache drooping poignantly downward.

I’m sure that Government is delighted to see that more people left the UK last year than in any year since current records began in 1991. Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) indicate that some 385,000 people left the UK for the long term in the year to mid-2006. Of those who left the UK last year, 196,000 were British citizens while 189,000 were "long-term migrants" who had been living in the UK for more than a year. How curious that Government defines "long-term" as more than 12 months!

Meanwhile, the figures also indicated that during the same period, 74,000 people arrived in the UK from the eastern European countries that joined the European Union in 2004, while 16,000 people from those countries left. However, according to Home Office statistics, around 200,000 people from the same countries registered for work in the UK during that time.

Think about that for a second! You see the disconnect! Campaign group Migrationwatch said the figures did not add up. Quite right!

"This once again highlights that the government has no real grip of immigration or any meaningful idea of the true number coming to and leaving the UK which makes planning for these large population increases extremely difficult," said chairman Sir Andrew Green.

I wonder how long it will be before some on the environmental left start calling for the end to Air Travel here in the UK? I note that the cost for an average family to fly away on holiday could increase by more than £100 under plans being considered by the Brown junta. This comes on top of Gordon Brown’s doubling of Air Passenger Duty in his final Budget as Chancellor. The price of Air Travel in the UK is being rocketed, and all three major UK political parties vie to see which can increase it most, and the consequence will be that many people start to review whether they can afford to fly any longer. Choice and freedom is being curtailed in the name of environmentalism and our political class are going along with this. How long before laws are passed prohibiting us to travel by air? Do we care or will we accept the limitations on our ability to travel where we want, when we want, as we want?

Wonder what you make of the news that two members of the gang which murdered Pc Sharon Beshenivsky have now been charged with stabbing a fellow prison inmate? Yusuf Abdillh Jamma, 20 and Muzzaker Imtiaz Shah, 25, (Crazy guys, crazy names) were sentenced to life in prison following the shooting of the officer in Bradford in 2005. Both are now accused of stabbing a 22-year-old man at Durham’s Frankland Prison in March. So, these guys shot the WPC to death, have been sentenced to a prison term, and now stab a fellow prisoner, wounding him seriously. What sort of prisons are we running? How did they gain access to whatever was used to stab the other prisoner? I wonder what their punishment may be? Isn’t this a good example where the application of the death penalty would be the kindest resort for such animals?

You have to laugh at the insanity behind the global alarmists!

Moose1.jpgNorway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching. Norwegian newspapers, citing research from Norway’s technical university, said a motorist would have to drive 13,000 kilometers in a car to emit as much CO2 as a moose does in a year. Bacteria in a moose’s stomach create methane gas which is considered even more destructive to the environment than carbon dioxide gas. Norway has some 120,000 moose but an estimated 35,000 are expected to be killed in this year’s moose hunting season, which starts on September 25, Norwegian newspaper. Just as well Moose can’t drive – then we’d REALLY be in bother!

sayeedalong.jpgI have to say that I am very suspicious of the self-serving account given by David Cameron’s Shadow Minister for Community Cohesion that she was advised against standing in the next election because of fears that voters were not ready for two ethnic-minority candidates to stand against each other. Sayeeda Warsi, who was made a peer during Mr Cameron’s reshuffle after Gordon Brown became Prime Minister, had been considering whether to stand again in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, where she was defeated by 4,615 votes by another Muslim candidate, Shahid Malik, at the 2005 election. In an interview with the Yorkshire Post, Baroness Warsi has revealed how a discussion with local Conservative officials made her think twice about standing again.  She said that in a discussion with the local Conservative party chairman, he had said: “You’re the best candidate we have ever had. You would have made a fantastic MP for this town but at the moment, maybe because of the way that this community is, it still needs a bit of time on both sides. He then added: “Maybe the white community is not ready for two ethnic [minority] candidates again and also the Muslim community needs to take a long, hard look at itself.”

Warsi is an opportunist par excellence and she will say whatever is required to cast herself in the best possible light. Given her track record I think we should be very careful before swallowing all this guff she has put out today. Cameron is a fool to have elevated such a person but then again he too will do and say anything if he thinks it makes him look good.

I was thinking that it might be a very good idea were the British police to go ex-directory as it would save a whole lot of bother for all parties concerned. Too many of  us labour under the illusion that the Police are here to help us – but they’re not! Take this amazing story.

A father who phoned 999 when his son was knocked unconscious by a drunken thug was told to write to his MP rather than bother the police! Businessman Pete Bayliss called after his 22-year-old son Chris was taken to hospital with a broken nose and other injuries. But police said they were too busy to investigate the attack. Superintendent Nigel Hindle, of Hampshire Police, said: "We regret that the verbal response to this call was not in accordance with our usual high standards and as a result professional development will be provided for the call handler. At or around this time, police officers were dealing with a number of other urgent incidents."

I say just go ex-directory and admit that the primary role of the Police is not to afford protection to the citizenry but rather to enforce the will of Government by persecuting motorists, ensuring ethnic and sexual diversity amongst the ranks, and helping criminals get the care they really do need. Then, the people of this land will realise that we need to find a way to look out for ourselves – the Police have failed us and as Mr Bayliss found out – a callous referral to our MP’s is the best we can expect in times of need.

dublin-aerial-liffey-2.jpgI was reading this story in the news today which claims that the greater Dublin area faces acute water shortages later in the century, with new studies indicating that levels in the Liffey could be half what they are at present. The Irish Climate Analysis and Research Units (Icarus) at NUI Maynooth estimates that summer levels in the rivers Boyne and Rye Water will be between 40 per cent and 50 per cent lower than now because of..tahda,…..global warming!

The Rye Water in Co Kildare is the main strategic tributary of the Liffey and is indicative of what water levels can be expected to be in the Liffey, which supplies 80 per cent of Dublin’s drinking water needs. Icarus is forecasting that the availability of drinking water could be reduced by 20 per cent as early as 2020, and by 50 per cent by the middle of the century unless new water sources are found.

However if your read the article in detail you will find that the "global warming" spin has little to do with the real problem here. Massive population increase and accompanying huge increases in demand for water have plenty to do with it. The population of the greater Dublin area is forecast to reach 2.4 million by 2031, a million more than at present. That’s a massive increase in people and a huge additional demand for water. The article is coy about where all these "extra Dubliners" are coming from, and the Irish birthrate is way below the level required to increase population in Dublin by 50%.  Do you think it is at all possible that the Irish authorities are trying to pass off one DIRECT consequence of their open borders policy as "global warming" when the fact of the matter is that they are really forecasting a Dublin in 2031 which will be demographically unrecognisable to that of today? It’s not that the Liffey waters are diminishing, it’s that the Dublin population is growing massively and without any control as a result of immigration. The current political class will be long gone to the safety of retirement if and when the Liffey does run dry.

I agree with the widow of Philip Lawrence – the Head Master stabbed to deathI by talian-born Learco Chindamo. that the Human Rights Act is "rotten to the core." Of course it is – it was devised by Eurocrats who see the world through a left-leaning "rights without responsibilities" prism. But just look at the reaction from our political class!  Despite calls from the likes of Mrs Lawrence for the HRA to be scrapped, Labour INSIST it will stay. No surprise there then. David Cameron acts all macho and beats his chest and says it will have to go. Pretty words but HOW exactly will it be going? Cameron knows fine well that the only certain way for the UK to remove itself from this corrupting legislation is to LEAVE the EU, and there is no prospect of this from the gutless Conservatives. And so it is that the rights of murderers trump the agonies of their victims and we can continue being right at the rotten heart of Europe.
