Monday Morning Smile

No video this week - just a link to the Metro newspaper with a salutary story of the kind of thing that happens if you vote LibDem...

Nick I find that equally as funny as letting Jackie Smith off her expenses there is a big difference between being potty and being a theif.

Something for you to really smile about Councillor.

Yesterday in the chamber Cameron made a jibe that Tony Blair’s campaign to become EU president was going well until the moment the Prime Mentalist backed him, ensuring the “curse of the one eyed son of the manse” doomed Blair’s ambitions.

The more significant evidence of the curse and something that is symbolic of the end of the twentieth century Anglo-American dominance of the world, is the purchase by the Indian Central Bank of 200 tonnes of gold from the IMF. The Indian Central Bank paid an average of $1040 per ounce, Gordon and Balls sold the Bank of England’s gold at an average of $275 an ounce. So cack-handed were the gold sales that Brown and Balls gave advance notice to the gold market and the trade is now famously known as “the Brown Bottom”. It was an act of short-term, self inflicted imprudence that has cost untold billions.

As quantitative easing drives the dollar and pound down in value the cost of that blunder becomes clearer. India is heading towards becoming the new English speaking superpower and Britain is heading towards becoming a bankrupt state with a devalued currency. Gordon has jinxed generations to come with government debt…

Your comments would be welcome.

Does any one take the Labour Party seriously any more?

From the Times:

Draconian police powers designed to deprive crime barons of luxury lifestyles are being extended to councils, quangos and agencies to use against the public, The Times has learnt.

The right to search homes, seize cash, freeze bank accounts and confiscate property will be given to town hall officials and civilian investigators employed by organisations as diverse as Royal Mail, the Rural Payments Agency and Transport for London.

The measure, being pushed through by Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, comes into force next week and will deploy some of the most powerful tools available to detectives against fare dodgers, families in arrears with council tax and other minor offenders.

The radical extension of the Proceeds of Crime Act, through a Statutory Instrument which is not debated by parliament, has been condemned by the chairman of the Police Federation. Paul McKeever said that he was shocked to learn that the decision to hand over “intrusive powers” to people who were not police was made without consultation or debate.

What say you dear Councillor?

Every Country Needs A Leader Like This!

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..


Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:


'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'


Maybe we should all now find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths that the UK is our country and they should adapt to our ways or get out. This isn't racism Councillor Wallis.
