Notting Hill Carnival

Last year's Notting Hill Carnival:
526 arrests
289 muggings
26 stabbings
2 shootings
1 murder
1 riot
I've gleaned these stats from various Internet sources and cannot verify their accuracy as crime figures for this event are strangely hard to find and also very conflicting for some reason.
But, who exactly gets what out of this 'celebration of multiculturalism'?

Population Rise Figures For Dummies

Well I see in the news today that the population of Britain has soared in recent years. And the BBC gleefully report that this population rise is driven by higher birth rates rather than by immigration.
I will remind you of the headlines from just a few weeks ago 'One in Five Births in England are to Foreign Mothers'.

Sol Campbell and Football Do it all With a Straight Face

Sol Campbell the ex England and Premier League football player has this week shocked the footballing world by signing for lowly Notts County.
This is a huge drop - in football terms 3 leagues as he moves from the Premiership down to League 2.
Asked why he had made such a move he waffled on about Notts County being the oldest club in the land with great traditions and heritage, and he felt that they were a club going places, with ambition etc.
What he didn't mention however is the fact that Notts County will pay him a staggering £40,000 per week in wages. This from a club that pays the majority of it's players a bog standard £500 per week wage (that's £25,000 per year as opposed to Campbell's £40,000 per week or £2million per year).
For my sins I love football (mainly West Ham) but I have to say that at the moment the game has been hijacked by shallow money men who are fleecing the ordinary (traditionally working class) fans and throwing money at players (some in the Premier League earn reportedly around £150,000 per week!), agents earns literally millions for arranging a single transfer and corporate noses are in the trough at every game.
The people's game has been taken from the people and Sol Campbell's brass neck nonsense ('great traditions - nothing to do with the money etc') sums it up perfectly.
I don't blame Campbell and he's no different to all the others really, but as long as people are willing to pay as much as £40 to watch a match, £50 for the (latest) replica shirt and £60 or so per month for Sky TV then the great gravy train robbery will just keep on rolling.

Council Snouts in Troughs

There was a piece in The Mail on Sunday today about various Council Chief Executives and their quite outrageous expense claims.
What caught my eye about the story though was the salaries of these people.
These wonderful servants of the public were earning around £250,000 per year - that's just salary alone without expenses!
They see fit to pay themselves (which is more or less what they do) around TEN TIMES the average persons salary in the country today!!!
Snouts in troughs.
We need a shake up, a revolution.

Lockerbie Compassion

Next time you're on an aeroplane (maybe with your wife and kids) just think about what the Lockerbie bomber did and see if you can feel compassion for him.
And don't you just love the way the Labour government seem to be distancing themselves from the whole sorry mess?
They're as keen on his release as the Scottish 'government' (didn't know they had one actually).

Duchess of York's Very Safe Estate

A bit of a furore is going on about the Duchess of York's TV programme (tonight) about a northern housing estate.

I'm not going to go into the boring details of it all (I heard the Duchess taking calls about the show last week on radio and she sounded thoroughly unpleasant) but what made me laugh was the clip of the policeman stating (from the estate) what a very safe place it was. He was of course when he made the statement, wearing a stab proof vest...

British Afghan Wars.

I keep reading and hearing that the Afghan's have never lost a war on home soil and in the past have defeated the British.
A little Internet research showed me that there have been three British Afghan wars (1839, 1878 and 1919) - and Britain won them all.
We never took the country over but withdrew each time having inflicted military defeat on them and having achieved our objectives.
So what's all this talk of defeat about then?
More trendy anti British re-writing of history perhaps?
PS - I don't think we should be there now though - but that's another matter.

Phony Baloney Jobs

I've come to the conclusion that the country is being taken over by the 'Phony Baloney Job Brigade'.
These people I believe have pretty much invented their own jobs which then become invaluable.
But they are, as Mel Brooks said in the film Blazing Saddles 'Phony Baloney Jobs'.
If you look at any job page in a newspaper or online, then the plumbers, bricklayers, nurses, lorry drivers, postmen, shop assistants etc - ie: the real professions are outnumbered by all these (highly paid of course) nonsense (Phony Baloney) jobs such as: (and I quote) Community Manager, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, Business Strategist, Strategy Analyst, Innovation Advisor, Customer Insight Planner, Book Move Manager, Equality and Diversity Advisor, Neighbourhood Engagement Officer, Integrated Campaigns Manager... you get the picture.
Do these jobs actually do anything other than oil the greasy wheels of capitalism and enforce left wing brainwashing? No they don't.
It's all a load of self serving self important bollocks.
Come the revolution...

Welcome Home

Well I'm back from Turkey. Nice country, nice people, very hot.

I saw a woman on the beach over there in all the Muslim gear (don't know the technical terms), she was covered entirely other than her face. She looked uncomfortable especially when swimming. Her husband (in skimpy trunks) did not.

The newspapers are full of the same stuff as when I went away, ie: Jordan and Michael Jackson. Unbelievable.

I see at the weekend that there was violence between the anti Islamic extremist protesters and the UAF and assorted Muslim thugs. It'll get worse. The UAF has tried to tarnish the BNP with all of this. Blatant liars.

The baby P thing has been debated today on the grounds of 'should the killers be given anonymity when they come out'?

When they come out?! The fact that they should NOT come out doesn't even seem to be on the radar.

Welcome home...
