Sexism and Nepotism

Emilie Oldknow: She allegedly said 'Who do I have to sleep with to get elected in my area?' at a Labour Party meeting, and Jonathan Ashworth held up his hand.

It seems that I have to remove the image of my MP that I have had on my dartboard for the past decade and replace it. No, the election hasn't come early to my neck of the woods, rather the boundary commission has decided to move me into another region.

My 'new' region is still a Labour safe seat and although the MP is standing down, another candidate has been parachuted in – Emilie Oldknow. 

Available in any colour, as long as its black

Oldknow was selected from a list of women only candidates. Now, I have nothing against voting for women (I voted for Thatcher), but I despise being forced to only vote for women, merely because they are women and are needed to make up the numbers in Parliament. It wasn't a case that the two best canidates for Labour were women, it was a case that the only candidates that Labour would select in my region were women. 

This ridiculous sexism, masquerading as positive discrimination is insulting, not only to women, who are apparently too stupid to vote for anyone other than someone with breasts, but also men, who are apparently so sexist that they can only vote for men unless given no choice. 

Purely on the basis that my choice has been removed from me, I would never vote for Emilie Oldknow. Such actions are a first step on a slippery slope, what next, only being allowed to vote for Blair/Brown cronies?

Too late

Chris Leslie

Chris Leslie: Another Brown crony, who masterminded his 2007 leadership campaign, has been parachuted into Nottingham East safe seat after being personally selected by Brown.

Well it seems that Emilie Oldknow ticks that box too. Oldknow just happens to be sharing a bed with Jonathan Ashworth, Brown's deputy political secretary. Even her opponent during selection pulled out citing cronyism and claiming that the selection process is basically a done deal. 

I am inclined to believe her, how else, other than cronyism and positive discrimination, would a 29 year old who cannot even spell the name of her hometown and with no political experience become the candidate for my area?

It has also been noted that Oldknow, who used to work for the NHS, and her fiancée Ashworth, may have had quite a lot to do with the recent cancer leaflets, although Oldknow stated:

“I had not seen the mailshot before and it wasn’t sent out by my campaign,”

Thank you Brown, if I were beginning to forget why I will never vote Labour again for the rest of my life, and why I hate our current political system, you have reminded me. 

Common Sense Prevails!

Tyler Juett - Thief

Killed: Tyler Juett was killed after breaking into a house, armed with a knife. I'm guessing this isn't a recent picture

Murder charge against man who killed burglar to be dropped

Omari Roberts, 23, was due to stand trial for the murder of 17-year-old Tyler Juett who was stabbed to death during a struggle at his mother’s housein Nottingham last year.

I’ve been following this case closely, and I have to admit, I was starting to worry that the justice system had take all leave of its senses! The way that this case was handled has made me wonder whether someone else, from on high had something to do with bringing this case to court.

Ooh, now that I think about it!

It was seven months after the event that the CPS, quite out of the blue, decided that Omari Roberts should be prosecuted. The only explanation that I can think of for such a long period of ‘thinking about it’ is because that is how long it took before the very vocal complaining of Juett’s mother reached someone high up within Labour.

Tyler Juett, not quite as complimentary as the official images

Typical young hoodie chav or innocent child?

Someone who no doubt thought that self defence was already illegal, and therefore wanted something done. Who is this soon to be Labour peer? None other than Keir Starmer, Human Rights evangelist and head of the CPS.

Having left any impartiality behind long, long ago, Keir decided that this case needed rectifying. A very strong opponent of the death penalty, having being instrumental in getting it abolished in the Caribbean, and is working hard to ensure its abolition throughout Africa. Keir Starmer obviously didn’t like the idea of any criminal getting his just desserts, he certainly has a dislike of such karma, having argued successfully in the House of Lords that evidence obtained by torture should be inadmissable in court and also had control orders for two suspected terrorists reversed when he represented them in the House of Lords.  A criminal being killed whilst committing a crime certainly wouldn’t have gone down well with Keir Starmer. And clearly it didn’t.

Not on my watch

More recent photo of burglar Tyler Juett

Tyler: A more recent photo that more accurately portrays the burglar

Ian Cunningham, the CPS lawyer, who officially brought this case to court said:

“I have looked very carefully at the public interest in this case, and I am satisfied that it requires a prosecution. I also discussed the case with the CPS principal legal adviser [Keir Starmer] and have decided there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction. The law also makes clear that people could be prosecuted if they act with excessive and gratuitous force.”

The irony is of course that the only ones who acted with excessive and gratuitous force were the two burglars that forced their way into the home, and then attacked the homeowner’s son with a knife! There is little mention of the 14 year old burglar that survived, no doubt the CPS dropped charges against this little angel, before turning their attention to the real victim.

This case was never in the public interest. Omari Roberts has no convictions, is not violent and if he is only ever going to kill burglars that enter his home, then the public at large is quite safe from the man. The only interests that were served in bringing about the prosecution was those of Keir Starmer, whose principles could not stomach a criminal being killed by an honest citizen on his watch.

I yield!

Keir Starmer

The slightly effeminate Keir Starmer, may well have been on the receiving end of one too many wet towel flicks.

Cunningham also said:

“I have decided that when Omari Roberts disturbed two burglars and caused injuries to them – in one case fatally – his actions were not reasonable.”

A silly and illogical conclusion. I don’t think that any son would be ‘reasonable’ upon finding two armed young male burglars in his mothers home. Frankly I think it should be perfectly legal to kill someone who breaks into your home, with or without excessive or gratuitous force. Had it been Robert’s mother, she would more than likely have been injured, if not killed herself.

There certainly needs to be clarification on the law in this area, Labour MPs keep stating that the law is clear, yet cases like this keep coming to court, or are coming close to court thanks to Labour lackeys. Perhaps they all believe that any fight is like the wet towel flicking shower room play fights that they engaged in at public school and that it merely had to go on until one party shouts ‘Submit!’

Tyler Juett - Criminal killed in the line of duty

Tyler Juett: Faced with this knife wielding maniac in my mothers home, I think I'd kill him too.

With the way things stand, should an unfortunate burglar encounter me in my home, I wouldn’t hesitate to ensure my family were safe, even if that meant killing the burglar. The question is, would I call the police, or even an ambulance afterward? With my legal protection removed, or the CPS acting as though it is, I could save myself a whole lot of hassle by just wrapping the corpse of the slain thief in bin bags and driving out to some woods with a spade. It’s not as if burglars tell people where they’re going, or leave an itinerary is it?

Omari Roberts lawyer had the best line:

“This is a young man [Roberts] with no history of violence whatsoever, coming back to his mother’s house for lunch and finding two people who rushed at him. One of them has ended up dead but he was damned if he did, and dead if he didn’t.”

Precisely. The will to live is not something that can be legislated out of us.

Update 19/04/2010:
BBC News – Burglar murder charge against Nottingham man dropped

A man accused of murder after stabbing a teenage burglar to death during a break-in at his mother’s home has had all charges against him dropped.

Charges were indeed dropped today as expected. Questions now of course need to be asked about why Keir Starmer became personally involved in this case and whether he should face action for his conduct. This whole episode has been disgusting and tarnished the reputation and impartiality of the CPS, this charge was never in the public interest and should never have been brought.

The BNP might be racist, but are they the only option?

Nick Griffin: Barmy and not helped by his mad eyed look

BBC NEWS | Politics | Griffin complaint over BBC ‘mob’

BNP leader Nick Griffin is to complain to the BBC over his controversial appearance on Question Time, saying he had faced a “lynch mob”.

I have to admit that this was the strangest question time that I have ever seen, and also the most compelling.

I cannot have been the only one wondering what the crazy one-eyed racist was going to do, and then, when it was clear that Gordon Brown was not going to try and block Question Time, what Griffin would do.

Was it a lynch mob? Of course, but then what did Nick Griffin expect? Whether he believes that he was hard done by and it was biased, these were the questions that the public wanted answering.

The Racist

In the end Griffin came across and a slightly bonkers, babbling buffoon. By the end he seemed to become more and more unhinged and was almost frothing at the mouth. Initially the man came across like the unpopular kid at school, desperately trying to get in with the cool gang by laughing at their jokes, hanging around and behaving in a generally awkward and unsettling manner.

He was shaking at the off and looked terrified, but then, this wasn’t the usual working men’s club full of uneducated underclass, this was the big table. His lies, such as denying he said things, when the video footage was clearly available, and deflecting questions, weren’t going to wash here, and that appeared to be what worried him.

It was a poor performance overall and he managed to demonstrate that his moderate stance was a façade, merely hiding his deep seated hatred. The BBC must have been rubbing their hands in glee when they placed him next to black intellectual, Bonnie Greer, a person who, under Griffin’s true White Supremacist views, cannot exist.

That said, despite his views the monster behaved and treated Greer as an equal. The same cannot be said of Greer who thought it appropriate to turn her back on him throughout the programme, clearly under the impression that being disrespectful to someone because of their views, is different from being disrespectful to someone because of their colour. Prejudice is prejudice and it was clearly an ill thought out move on the part of Greer.

In Britain, at least in my day, we were brought up to respect the views of others, even if we disagreed with them, and treating someone with contempt merely because of their views is wrong. I would never do the same to a Global Warming nut.

Culture

Youseff Bashir and people like him hate Britain, its culture and all it stands for

Despite all Griffin’s failings, his ravings, his inexplicable fits of laughter and disturbed appearance, had he changed ‘race’ to culture, I would have agreed with most of what he said. Does that make me a racist? Moreover, do I care – no. If protecting my culture upsets others – tough, their culture is no doubt protected elsewhere, mine is not. There is a creeping realisation in Britain, predominately but not exclusively amongst whites, that their culture is being eroded.

In schools Christmas is no longer celebrated, but Divali and Eid are. Anything Christian or traditionally British is deemed either too white, or worse, racist. Which is of course dressed up in buzz words such as divisive, or not inclusive or diverse enough.

Griffin’s remark:

“They must acknowledge that Britain always has been, and must remain – and it’s right that it must remain – a fundamentally British and Christian country based on Western democratic values and not on the eternal values of the Qu’ran.”

Is something that many, many people agree with. I am not a Christian, but the Christian values that this country is based on, or at least were during my youth, have made me the person that I am today, hard working and law abiding. I haven’t moved to another country, I still live in the same country that my ancestors did, so why should those core values change, or indeed why should I need to change?

The point is that I shouldn’t, but we are being brow beaten into accepting other cultures being superior to our own and those that speak out are branded racist xenophobes. The problem is that there is no middle ground, there is no one else tackling these issues other than the BNP, the other parties are running scared as after 50 years of promoting ‘multicultural diversity’ they have no idea what British is anymore and are terrified of upsetting a minority.

As a black man pointed out on the show (demonstrating once again that this isn’t just a ‘white’ or ‘race’ issue), it is because no one wants to tackle immigration that the BNP are becoming more popular. They are the only ones talking of preserving British culture.

Immigration

Marek Harcar: Despite having numerous convictions for violence he had no trouble getting into Britain to commit murder. Of course now deporting him would breach his human rights!

I have never heard a convincing argument for a multicultural society. Ironically Bonnie Greer pointed out Rome as a multicultural society that flourished, stating that anyone could become a Roman citizen, regardless of race. Which was true, if they were prepared to serve a decade or more in the army. A test of loyalty and dedication that we should perhaps employ in modern Britain, that way, at least the Gurkha’s who seem to be the only people not allowed to settle here, would be allowed to settle here.

Rome eventually fell due to multiculturalism, the advantages gained by the Marius reforms were slowly diluted as more and more cultures were absorbed into the Empire and the army. By the end the Roman army was a pale shadow of its former self, Rome itself had lost many of its ideals, beliefs (adopting Christianity as the official religion for one), culture and military ethos. In the end relying on other hardy and warlike people to do the fighting for them, who then eventually turned on the weak Romans. After all, why continue to fight to protect the weak Roman culture,  when their own was superior?

There are many obvious parallels to be drawn between Rome and modern Britain but no positives that I can see. Baroness Warsi also tried to explain the positives of multiculturalism/immigration stating that ‘Britain should have the brightest and the best here’, sadly for Warsi and the other proponents of multi-ethnic Britain, it is the polar opposite that is actually happening.

We are getting the criminals, the lazy and the dregs of other societies landing here, people whom, if they were British citizens, would not get in anywhere else but here they are most welcome. People like Marek Harcar and Ali Majlat, who, when arrested,  the police in their home nations were gob smacked that they were ever allowed here. So easy is it to come here that Interpol believes that many of Europe’s most wanted criminals are hiding in plain sight in Britain.

Currently almost 20% of all the criminals locked up in British prisons are foreign nationals, and more than 20% of all British murderers are foreign nationals, this ridiculous situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Baroness Warsi and Jack Straw seemed to like the expression, ‘We cannot just pull up the drawbridge..’, well I’d like to know, if they don’t think they should pull it up now with a quarter of all criminals in Britain immigrants, just when they think it would be a good time to do so? When 50% of prisoners are foreign nationals? 80%? Or when the rest of the world decides to use as a huge Alcatraz and walls us all in?

Deporting those that have no business being here, and stopping immigrants from entering this country would cut the crime and murder rates by 20%, who would not think that was a good idea? People like Jack Straw who have round the clock protection and live in areas not affected by crime. Let’s be honest here, immigrants don’t move to the sort of areas that MPs live in, and they are not eligible for their jobs!

Jack ‘Not in the Face’ Straw

Jack Straw: Teary eyed, like his father was at the thought of having to fight those nasty Nazi’s.

I thought that Jack Straw was quite a decent, opened minded bloke, but I found his talk about Churchill and the Nazi’s sickening. He then later brought up the fact that he was from a family of Jewish immigrants, which made it all the more startling that his father had decided to sit out World War II, and leave the fighting to people like my family.

My grandfather’s brother died protecting Jack Straw’s cowardly father, yet my grandfather is a pensioner struggling on the breadline, whilst Straw, never having had to lift a finger to protect his comforts nor make the ultimate sacrifice like so many others, is now sitting pretty. 

It disgusted me that he thought it OK to lecture someone else about the war, when his family did not make the sacrifices that others did, did not do their duty like others did, but reaped more of the benefits than many of the others. He tried to use his family history to point out positives of immigration but all it did was bury the argument, Straw’s family and father were content to take all the benefits of living in Britain, but not fight to defend those freedoms. Which begs the question of whether modern immigrants would follow the Straw example of loyalty.

Because that loyalty could not be relied upon, during the war in which Straw’s dad excused himself, World War II, they rounded up all the Germans in Britain and kept them in prison camps. The Americans did the same with the Japanese. Today, it would be impossible. With Britain likely to get sucked into a war in Pakistan, and with Pakistan the country of origin for most immigrants in Britain, and also most foreign nationals languishing in prison, it could be a security disaster. Indeed so lax are things here, Al Qaeda or the Taliban could very well run their war from Britain, with less fear of getting caught or even deported if they were.

Much as Straw and the others would have us think that these are simply race issues, they are not. It isn’t just a case of black and white, there are a myriad of issues to do with immigration and not least the erosion of our culture and values but also issues of security, stability and crime. The more that politicians dodge this issue, a fact which was very clear on Question Time once again, the more people will move to the BNP.

Our political leaders have basically said that it is their way or the highway, and I’m not for doing it their way.

Islam in British Prison’s = Easy Ride

Ali Dizaei: Another Muslim heading to prison

Ali Dizaei: Another Muslim heading to prison

Muslim prisoners get their own cells after sharing row | Mail Online

A prison has agreed to give Muslims their own cells after they complained about sharing with other inmates.

It amazes me just how many prisoners ‘appear’ to be Muslim; is it a case that Muslims are more prone to crime? Or simply that many inmates find Islam as a way to get an easy ride within the criminal justice system?

Finding God/Allah

Prison may seem an unlikely place to find God, but due to ridiculous laws in this country, getting a religion is how to get ahead in UK jails, and even wider society. About 70% of those in UK prison describe themselves as ‘religious’ although being devout does not apparently stop them committing crimes.

3% of violent offenders in prison class themselves as Buddhists! A religion normally associated with peace and harmony. Compare this to the warrior religion, Sikhism, where Sikh’s do not even make up 1% of violent offenders languishing in prison.

Muslims make up 10% of violent offenders, despite only making up 2.7% of the population. Muslims also make up about 10% of sexual offenders, 13% of robbers, 5% of burglars, 6% of thieves and 21% of fraudsters behind bars.

Most surprising of all is that 15% of all those in prison for drugs offences, are Muslim; despite drugs of any kind, including alcohol, being against their religion. Clearly these ‘Muslims’ are not as devout as they like to claim.

In total Muslims make up 10% of the prison population and rising. Islam is also the fastest growing religion in British prisons, with 15% of all religious inmates following it. Just to re-iterate once again, just 2.7% of the UK general population are Muslims.

Compare that to Christians, who make up 70% of the population, but just 52% of the prison population.

Whilst in itself such information is not evidence that multiculturalism is bad for wider society, as some religions such as Sikhs, Jews and Hindu’s make up far less of the prison population that they do of the general population, it does show that these ‘Muslims’ are either not true Muslims, or that Islam is not entirely the religion of peace it is made out to be.

Demands

This also begs the question, should the UK’s most criminal of religions entitle its followers to make demands?

‘So far around 15 Muslim inmates have been accommodated either by being moved to a cell with another Muslim or put on their own,’ said a prison source. ‘They initially asked for their own wing but this was turned down.’

HMP: Winson Green, Birmingham. Facilities include: workshops, educational facilities, a new healthcare centre and gym. Holds 1450 prisoners, or 350 Muslims.

This is the kind of double standards that I find appalling. White, indigenous people have it drilled into them from birth that they must be tolerant, accept those of other faiths and cultures and allow them freedom to practice their religion and accept their different culture; yet this is rarely reciprocated.

Worse, the powers that be allow this to happen. This is cultural isolation and segregation, if the Home Office or Prison service were to start putting all whites, or all blacks, together there would be uproar and rightly so. But as this is a minority religion it is deemed acceptable to give them special privileges?

Either we are multi-cultural or we are not, there is no place for ‘special’ religions, cultures or treatment.

The judge called for a new concept of ‘institutional religious intolerance’ to combat prejudice against Muslim inmates.

Another idiot judge sending totally the wrong message. Religious people do not commit crimes, therefore when a prisoner gets sent to prison the first thing that should be taken away from them are any and all religious rights.

Those rights should have been forfeited when they beat, stole, raped or murdered their way into a British prison.

These special privileges are only going to aggravate the other 33% of prisoners who have no religious safety net, those that are not hypocrites.

One prison officer said: ‘This has caused resentment because it is felt the Muslim inmates are getting special treatment.’

This resentment is then used as an excuse by moronic Judges as justification for more ‘religious tolerance’ when that is precisely the sort of thing that encourages it.

With the number of Muslims in our prisons rising rapidly, this kind of preferential treatment of a religion in which criminality appears more prevalent than any other is sending out entirely the wrong message. And as the number of Muslims in prison increases, the more the resentment and attacks will increase.

British Isles to be Desert!

Climate Zealot blocking traffic on Westminster Bridge, clearly not realising that traffic standing in jams are more polluting than free moving traffic; but no-one ever said these people were smart, or logical

BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | UK ‘must plan’ for warmer future

The UK needs to plan now for a future that will be hotter and bring greater extremes of flood and drought, says Environment Secretary Hilary Benn.

Each time this type of thing is announced it seems that they have to go further and further with their madcap predictions. This is a Government report conducted by the Hadley Centre, which was created purely to look at Global Warming and is completely tax funded.

The Hadley Centre is part of the Met Office and accounts for approximately 13% of its staff, they are hardly going to start saying that Global Warming was a bit of a mix up and that mass redundancies are needed, now are they? No, with each report they have to go to crazier and crazier lengths to justify this cold spell and their very existence.

Bias

This bias is spreading into their projections, take the graph below:

Notice the dip sometime after the year 2000? Virtually right up to where we are now, and then the inexplicable jump later this year/early 2010?

The fact is this is pure guesswork, if not wishful thinking. Temperatures have dropped and there are no indications of any kind of increase looming.

They have covered their backs with large drops after 2010 and again after 2020, just in case there is no big increase, but after 2025 the guess work becomes quite fanciful.

The problem with these kind of models is that they are all based on a certainty that the temperature will always increase, and these enviro-mentalists don’t even consider the possibility that the warming period may be over.

Computer Modelling

Having a computer myself and being curious as to how this process works, I decided to create my own computer model. By feeding into my computer all the relevant information, dates, temperature and adding in pointless guesswork and bias, I set my computer to crunching the numbers.

Amazingly, and a testament to modern computing power, it finished the highly complex and completely random computing modelling pretty quickly. The result is below:

For some inexplicable reason my output was completely different to that created by the Hadley Centre, but then my very existence does not depend on the results.

As you can see the computer was able to predict that we are in fact heading for a mini-ice age. Reaching its peak around 2024, the surface air temperature in the Northern Hemisphere will drop by a third of a degree, which may not seem like much but to steal a phrase from the climate freaks, could well be catastrophic.

This is in direct contrast to the Hadley Centre’s predictions of an increase in temperature by nearly half a degree Celsius (they must  have had their graph upside down!).

Britain won’t have seem the kinds of temperatures like those in 2024 since the 1850s. We’ll be seeing frozen lakes, rivers and canals and perhaps a re-emergence of that popular pastime of ice skating on rivers and lakes. I for one, cannot wait.

The UK Met Office, which led the scientific analysis, says UKCP09 is the “most comprehensive set of probabilistic climate projections at the regional scale compiled anywhere in the world”.

Personally I don’t think that they are worth the paper that they are printed on.

Experimenter Effect

It is almost uncanny that model after model after model bears out the ‘scientists’ theories.

Scientists collated data from 400 variations of the climate computer model developed by the Hadley Centre, part of the Met Office.

I am guessing that if MPs were to create a computer model to discover whether they were giving taxpayers their moneys worth, the results would be pretty similar, i.e. the computer models would say that tax payers are getting a bargain!

Needless to say that the enviro-mentalists are clapping their hands in glee at this report.

“It’s great that the government has decided to put together such a scientifically robust analysis of the potential impacts of climate change in the UK,” said Keith Allott, head of climate change at WWF-UK.

But why wouldn’t they? After all this mean millions, if not billions, are going to be handed out in Government grants to Climate Change groups in order to prepare Britain for an event that will never happen.

By that time lots of people will have gotten rich from this cult.

Thugs 4 Life

Michael Alleyne: Ringleader of gang and as dumb as he looks.

Kinsella killers ‘marked men’ after life sentences – Crime, UK – The Independent

The killers of 16-year-old Ben Kinsella were jailed for life yesterday. Juress Kika, 19, Jade Braithwaite, 18, and Michael Alleyne, 20, from London, were told they would serve minimum terms of 19 years each after being convicted of murder.

Does 19 years living in hotel style accommodation, having health and dental care better than the average Briton (on site doctor and nurse as well as dentist), and all at the taxpayers expense, seem like a suitable punishment?

Is this fair on the family of murdered Ben Kinsella? Is it fair on the taxpayer? Is it fair on society that one day these good for nothing scumbags will be out and rubbing shoulders with the rest of us? Especially considering that they are sadistic criminals now at such a young age, and that in their 40s they are likely to be just the same, if not worse?

I don’t think so, they should have been executed, but maybe they still will be.

Marked For Death

Juress Kika: Now mainly performs fellatio on fellow inmates.

These wannabe gangsters lived in a bizarre world of TV and movie violence and lifestyles, now they may very well get to live a gangster style life first hand; living in fear and always having to look over their shoulders.

The judge at the Old Bailey, the Common Serjeant of London, Brian Barker, heard that the three had received letters from the prison service which are usually sent to inmates who are in fear of retaliation attacks. Often such prisoners stay in solitary confinement. Braithwaite’s lawyer told the court he understood he was a “marked man”.

The retaliation is expected to come from none other than the Adams family, no, nothing to do with the TV show, but a North London crime family on whose manor Ben Kinsella was killed. The Adams family have reportedly placed a big money contract on the heads of all three of Ben’s killers, apparently they were none too pleased about his senseless killing.

Where these three are going there are likely to be plenty of people wanting to curry favour with the Adams family, or just simply earn some easy money.

The irony is that it will take violent criminals to give the family of Ben Kinsella justice; as the British state is no longer capable of it.

Capital Punishment

Jade Braithwaite: Despite being 6′ 6″ tall, he still had to get two of his mates to help him stab a schoolboy

When the death penalty was abolished in Britain in 1965 the murder rate per million was 6.8. Today it stands at an incredible 20.3 murders per million people, an astonishing threefold increase in the murder rate since the abolition of the death penalty.

There are those that claim that the death penalty has no influence on murder rates, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, instead claiming that socio-economic factors have more to do with murder rates.

In the 1930s the world entered the Great Depression, a recession so bad it makes the current one look like a boom period. I know people that lived through it, and their stories make me realise what true deprivation and poverty are.

Few alive today have any inkling of what people in the 1930s went through, there were no benefits, no NHS and if you didn’t earn enough to feed yourself you either had to beg for food,  steal it or simply starve.

Despite all this hardship, the murder rate actually decreased during the Great Depression, from 8.3 in 1920 to 7.5 during the depression. So I think that it is safe to rule out poverty and hardship as reasons for our current epidemic of murders and violent behaviour.

In fact from 1900, when the murder rate stood at a lofty 9.6 per million, up until 1965, when the death penalty was abolished, the murder rate steadily declined over 60 years. Within a decade of murder no longer being punishable by death, 60 years of decline had been reversed and the murder was the highest of the century, so far. Within 20 years it had almost doubled.

Today our murder rate is higher than that of Israel and on a par with Libya. France’s murder rate is 15.9 per million, Germany’s 9.8.

Leniency

Tony Blair: The man who took a bad Criminal Justice system, and turned it into a god awful one

Successive British Governments have ensured that criminals in modern Britain face no real justice. Jade Braithwaite had already been convicted of mugging a schoolboy, but was virtually let off, for some bizarre reason, which presumably gave him the impression that British Justice was a misnomer. Despite being 20 years old, he had no job, and no inclination to find one and lived with his mother; who was presumably a soft touch.

Michael ‘Mickey’ Alleyene was also a convicted robber, car thief and had likewise seen British justice for what it was – a joke. Despite committing all these offences from the age of 15, he only served a nine month sentence for drug dealing. It was meant to be 18 months, but in modern Britain, criminals only serve half their sentence, and Alleyene had only just got out and was under the ‘supervision’ of a youth offending team at the time of the murder.

Juress Kika started his criminal career aged just eleven. Convictions for ABH and shoplifting didn’t deter him, and why should they have, I doubt he got so much as a slap on the wrist. Just to demonstrate how tough the justice system is, he was arrested twice in the same year for the same offence, possession of cannabis, yet served no time for it. Kika was also convicted of robbery aged 17, again serving no time. Kika was wanted by police at the time of the murder for another stabbing, just ten days earlier.

I guess Ben Kinsella was the answer to the question; just who do these three have to kill to serve jail time in this country?

Once again it is possible to see a clear progression of these thugs from petty criminals to evil scum. The British Justice system failed Ben Kinsella time and time again by not punishing these three, nor even offering any form of deterrent to them. If the criminal justice system is not punishing criminals nor protecting the innocent, what is it doing?

Bobbies on the Beat

21st Century Police Officer: At least ED-209 had guns

It is often said that we just don’t have as many police officers as we used to, and that is why crime rates are so high, well it is true in part. We actually have more than double the number of police officers we had in the 1950s, when the murder rate was just 6.3 per million. Back then about 75,000 officers managed to keep the streets of Britain safe by acting as a visible deterrent to would be villains.

Despite there being more than 150,000 bobbies (not including Blunkett’s bobbies) in Britain today, your chances of actually seeing one are few and far between, unless you are speeding. Foot patrols and beat bobbies are old hat in Britain. Modern police officers sit in cushy air conditioned offices drinking coffee waiting for crimes to occur, whereupon they examine the CCTV evidence, release the suspect’s picture and await a tip off. Those 40% of crimes that are not covered by CCTV are simply filed away as ‘unsolvable’.

We should be thankful that these thugs were caught on CCTV and have been taken off the street, and pray that they do not appeal and get a more lenient sentence. With any luck they will get the sentence that they truly deserve, death, when someone from the Adams family catches up with them.

In the mean time we just have to worry about the thousands of other teenage thugs on the streets, and the police and courts inability or disinclination to deal with them.

White Supremacists In Terror Plot

White Supremacists: Most likely only a danger to themselves.

Man and teenage son held after ricin found – Times Online

A teenage boy and his father are being held under the Terrorism Act over a suspected Ricin poison plot by white supremacists.

Question is, how on earth did the police know that it was ricin in the jam jar without opening it? Personally if I am unsure what is in a jar, I open it and sniff.

hyperbole

Whilst I understand the seriousness of this case, I do think that the police may be building up their part just a tad.

Senior police say they believe the two could be part of worldwide terror plot targeting ethnic minorities.

Something tell me that the term World Wide may be a little bit of an exaggeration, what with whites themselves being ethnic minorities everywhere outside of Europe and North America.

International perhaps, but World Wide? I don’t think so.

That isn’t the end of the justification round however:

Durham’s assistant chief constable Mike Barton said: “This shows that the terrorist threat in the UK is real and present.’

Well, that makes all these years of anti-terror laws, after anti-terror laws, the evaporation of our civil liberties, the further encroachment of the police and state into our daily lives, the extensive databases of DNA and personal information, all worth it.

None of them were used in this investigation, the ricin was discovered by accident and the ‘real and present’ threat that it posed had been languishing in a kitchen cupboard for two years.

stroke of luck

The fact is the police tripped over this ‘terror plot’ and couldn’t believe their luck. A pair of idiots had created ricin (no easy feat), perhaps plotting the rise of the white race over a pint or two, or in an armchair but just never figured out how to deliver, or, more likely, that they wanted to.

The pair of idiots are probably even now kicking themselves for not having gotten rid of it. Idiots they may be, but the best quote of this investigation again come from Mike Barton:

“White supremacists seem to hate an awful lot of people.”

Ethnic minorities, as the name suggests, are a minority of people, so it would be fair to say that the supremacists hate a lot less people than say, radical Muslims or the likes of Harriet Harman, Jacky Smith and Caroline Flint, who hate all men.

He added: “This will spawn an awful lot of intelligence which will then kick start other criminal counter terrorism inquiries elsewhere.”

Again demonstrating that the Police cannot believe their luck with having this fall into their lap!

As for the ricin itself, it is 6,000 times more powerful than cynaide, just an amount the size of a grain of salt is enough to kill an adult. A most potent and lethal substance.

“It was in a sealed jam jar that has been kept in a kitchen cupboard – apparently for up to two years.”

How are they still alive? What a bunch of half-wits!
