I used to live in England and now I live in the United Nations

A couple of months ago I posted a YT video of a woman losing her cool thru drink, and going on a racist rant on the tube. That’s Britspeak for subway.

So then here’s an update which is interesting and just shows how right, maybe I should use the word correct instead, people accused of the big ‘R’ actually are.
There are valid reasons for their many seasons of discontent.  Mostly the feeling that they are losing their country. Their culture is being buried and they don’t understand how it’s been allowed.  The huge and people I do mean the very huge influx of uncontrolled immigration to this ISLAND.
I just need to emphasize that in case anyone forgot.

About a week ago an MP complained loudly after getting a less then quality sandwich and apparently not what he ordered, because the person who waited on him didn’t have much of an understanding of English. And so he asked why the fast food place couldn’t hire English ppl or at lease ppl who had a grasp of the language, instead of so darn many eastern Europeans.  Naturally the bed wet crowd called for his head accusing him of ... wanna say the word?

If every single person who felt the same way this woman did and spoke out the same way, drunk or sober, they would number in the millions and there would not be enough room in the jails to house them all.

Now then, what has me seeing red this chilly grey morning, is that the lady in question here could face jail because of her drunken rant on that subway.

Seems to me I recall a gang of four black muslim slags who beat the hell out of a white girl but were let off cos .... they weren’t used to being drunk.
I wonder if this woman can use the same defense. Course not. She be the wrong color and religion and race.

Happy New Year 1984.

Secretary, 42, told she faces jail after admitting champagne-fuelled racist rant on train that was posted on YouTube

Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, abused passengers on the Central Line train
Film uploaded to YouTube has been watched 200,000 times
Sikh man on his way back from funeral who filmed it, said he put it on YouTube to ensure speedy justice

By EMMA REYNOLDS

A drunken secretary has admitted hurling racist abuse at fellow passengers on the London Underground after a video of her appeared on the internet.

Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, directed a drunken, expletive-ridden rant at passengers on the Central Line between St Paul’s and Mile End stations on January 23.

The court was told that Woodhouse had drunk an ‘unknown’ quantity of champagne at a retirement party before getting on the Tube at 11pm.

She now faces jail, after police launched an investigation into a seven-minute long video of the verbal assault that was uploaded to YouTube.

Today at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Woodhouse, of Romford in Essex, admitted causing harassment alarm and distress to the Sikh man who filmed her - Galbant Singh Juttla.

The video clip begins with Woodhouse shouting in a thick Essex accent about ‘foreign s*** heads’.

She turns to her passengers and asks: ‘Where do you come from? Where do you come from? Where do you come from?

‘I would like to know if any of you are illegal? I am sure like 30 per cent of you are.’

She then turns on the Pakistani man sitting next to her, who is singing his national anthem, and threatens to ‘punch him in the face.’

‘I wouldn’t mind if you loved our country,’ she adds.

She then turns to Mr Juttla’s camera, as he assures her he would rather be listening to his music than to her.

She goes on: ‘Why don’t you tell me where you’re from?’

He replies: ‘I am British.’

She gets her phone out of her black handbag and looks as if she is filming him too.

Mr Juttla warns her: ‘Watch what you are saying.’

She replies: ‘I used to live in England and now I live in the United Nations.’

As he tells her to keep her mouth shut, informing her that she has had too much to drink, she becomes extremely agitated and starts screaming.

‘It’s not your country anyway so what’s your problem?’ she yells. ‘It’s been overtaken by people like you.’

The court heard that Mr Juttla decided to film Woodhouse after she started berating an unidentified black female. She then sat down between two men and began another barrage of abuse.

Woodhouse told police she could not remember the rant but recognised it was her in the video.

She attended court today wearing a black suit and white shirt. She sat in the court with her brow furrowed and her head bowed as the magistrate was shown the video clip.

Ms Campbell said Woodhouse verbally abused a male passenger while on a train to Stratford. She asked whether he had paid taxes, adding: ‘I have had enough of it, why don’t they go back to where they come from?’

Outside court Mr Juttla, who runs a print company, said: ‘I found it very distressing.

‘I uploaded it to YouTube because I thought that was the fast-track process to catching this person.

‘I also needed to show the public that kind of person is out there and not to put up with this kind of behaviour.

‘My kids have seen the video and they are disgusted by it. They don’t expect for someone to shout abuse at their dad.’

Adjourning sentence, District Judge Elizabeth Roscoe said: ‘Bearing in mind the level of abuse, the persistence of the abuse, the number of people on the train unable to leave without aborting their journey, and the children present, means that I think the court has to have a pre-sentence report.

‘I make it clear that all options are open to the sentencing court, including committal or immediate custody.’

The judge imposed stringent conditions banning her from the Tube network (for two years it’s reported elsewhere) and she was ordered to keep to a daily curfew between 10pm and 6am, which will be monitored by electronic tag.

She will be sentenced at the same court on May 29.

Now let us pray, but just leave god out of it.

How’s that for a headline?

The council that kept its prayers – by dropping God


A council has dropped references to God from the prayer with which it opens meetings, under pressure from secularist campaigners.

By Jasper Copping

For as long as anyone can remember, councillors in Gloucestershire have stood up for a brief prayer before their meetings get under way.
But when three agnostic and atheist members staged a protest against the historic practice by remaining seated, the chairman decided something must be done to retain council unity.
So he hit upon an apparently ingenious solution: from now on, the prayer would still be said – but with all references to God removed.
So rather than asking “may He give us wisdom to carry out our duties ...”, the chairman now states “may we find the wisdom ...” - and the “prayer” still ends with the chairman leading other members in saying “amen”.
The authority is one of dozens across Britain which have recently scrapped or significantly altered their custom of saying prayers at the start of meetings under pressure from secular campaigners, who argue the practice breaches their human rights and excludes non-believers and people from other faiths.

I don’t know what percentage of the population is made up of non-believers or agnostics. I don’t even think it should matter. I also think these folks doing all the shouting out of all proportion to whatever numbers they add up to, are fakes. They are looking for issues and the majority are caving into them every time.
How are my human rights violated if I’m in a place where a prayer is conducted? Never bothered me. Never felt ‘excluded’ or any of the other phony, I’m a victim
maladies.  But we need to be fair.  These ppl are doing their jobs. Right?  They are, “activists.”
Where the hell’s that gun?

here’s an idea. keep bad teachers on the job but payem less. say what?

A MUST share if I only posted the headline I saw in one morning paper today.

I know newspapers have to grab our attention, and sometime the headlines do not always square with the actual story.
However, where unions are involved in any step whatever in the process, you’ll almost always find a snake pit.

Here’s the headline.

BAD TEACHERS SHOULD BE PAID LESS, SAY MINISTERS.

Hey, wait a minute.  How many parents will welcome bad teachers at any price?

Does anyone know any parents anywhere that would?  I betcha even union heads want the best (left wing) teachers for their offspring.  But yours?  Maybe not.
In the last 18 months only one of five teachers judged to be incompetent was sacked.
And he or she had to be pretty bad for the teachers union to allow that.

MPs back plan for performance-related pay in schools

Weak teachers could be paid less than the very best performers under Government plans to improve standards of state education, it has emerged.
By Graeme Paton, Education Editor

Ministers are considering plans to create a clearer link between pay and classroom performance as part of a new drive to boost results and attract the best graduates into the profession.
The disclosure came as a cross-party group of MPs warned that a new system of performance-related pay was needed to stop the worst teachers hiding behind a “rigid and unfair” national salary structure.
It follows warnings from Ofsted last year that teaching was not good enough in more than four-in-10 schools, with “dull” lessons leading to poor standards of classroom behaviour.
Last night, it emerged that Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, has already written to the national body that reviews teachers’ salaries to seek advice on how the Government can “strengthen the link between pay and performance”.

But the move has been attacked by teaching unions who are strongly opposed to any attempt to dismantle national rules on pay and conditions.
They have already threatened strike action over proposals to introduce regional pay rates across the public sector.
But the cross-party committee’s report said: “No longer should the weakest teachers be able to hide behind a rigid and unfair pay structure.

source

But why keep weak teachers at all? At any price? 
Some students will do well in spite of teachers. They are exceptions and there are always those. But not by huge numbers.  Kids need the best they can get in schools and especially in the world we have today.  2nd rate is just not good enough.  Been a very long time since I attended school, so I’m not an expert on the subject. My uneducated guess is that most teachers are up to the mark. The sexy stories that concern the bad ones give the impression that the entire profession is populated by second rate failures. 
But it’s certain as well that as long as unions protect the less worthy, things won’t much improve.

a socialist conservative party?

This Conservative Party is more socialist than any government I have seen in my lifetime

By Peter Mullen, Politics

The Rev Dr Peter Mullen is a priest of the Church of England and former Rector of St Michael, Cornhill and St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in the City of London. He has written for many publications including the Wall Street Journal.

The Tories will not recover from the catastrophic election defeat which faces them this week. They don’t deserve to – because they have spent the last two years alienating their core supporters. These supporters, of whom I used to be one, are very largely old-fashioned, traditional middle class voters. I suppose we can be described as “respectable” – before, as GK Chesterton said, that word became very unrespectable.

What we old Tories stand for is the defence of the realm against foreign enemies and the maintenance of law and order at home. In these matters the Tory party under Cameron has betrayed us. The armed forces have been run down, even to the extremity of a proposal that we might have to share an aircraft carrier with the French – thus prompting the question of what we do with our half of it when their half surrenders.

One person posting under comments took serious issue with the remark, very funny tho it was, about the French and surrender.


conchobar said:

I get very irritated when I see the French get slagged off
once again about their defeat and surrender in 1940. The author shows serious
ignorance regarding the strategic realities facing both Britain and France in
1940 – they faced an unequal battle from the moment that Germany and the Soviet
Union signed their non-aggression pact permitting Germany to throw its entire
military weight against the West as Stalin clearly intended (hoping for a long
war in the West which would enervate all his enemies simultaneously!). The
rapid collapse of the Allied armies spared Britain and France the terrible losses suffered in the First World War.
The subsequent horrendous losses suffered by the Soviet Union were largely
caused by Stalin’s own savagery, incompetence and meddling. In 1940 France did not
have the luxury of a 25 mile wide anti-tank ditch behind which it could wait until
the strategic balance of forces became more favourable. I acknowledge that the Vichy regime was far too
enthusiastic to cooperate with its victorious enemy but that is a separate
matter.

The Rev. Mullen continues:

The riots of last summer are all the evidence we need to prove that the government cannot maintain law and order.

Boris Johnson says the government should go in for “more tax cuts.” More in addition to what? There have been no significant tax cuts. In fact every week there are proposals for ever more inventive methods of extorting money from the hardworking and the thrifty. I actually find myself paying tax on my meagre pension. Tories used to believe in supporting industry, both private and corporate, and rewarding thrift. Not any longer. We are taxed to the hilt, and industry is hamstrung by more and more regulation. Does Dave really think that the way to electoral success is by the systematic impoverishment of the middle class?
So what does Cameron’s Tory party stand for? It stands for massive state spending on failed institutions such as the NHS and what is laughably called state education. It funds, out of the taxes of the hardworking and the thrifty, a profligate public sector and a bloated welfarist culture. While turning its back on traditional Tory values, the modern – Oh yes, how very modern! – Conservative party is obsessed with the promotion of outlandish minority and sectarian causes.
In other words, Dave’s Tory party is more socialist than any socialist government I have seen in my lifetime. Why should I, or any other conservative-minded person vote for it?

Of course the obvious answer and the one he’s looking for is, no one should.
And I can easily understand his feeling. BUT … as we all know and I am not defending Mr. Cameron, nor is it my place to do so, and as someone else has pointed out in reply to his column, this is a coalition govt.  The cons couldn’t gather together enough votes to form a conservative govt. However, be that as it may, the PM nevertheless strikes me as not being totally committed and really is consv. lite in his heart of hearts.  Or that’s how he impresses me anyway.

Here’s someone else’s take on it.

jacko2012 said:

I think he fails to realise that the government in place is not the Conservative party, its a compromise government made up of LibDem and Conservative.
The LibDems would be failing as any credible party if they were not able to hold the Conservatives to their compromise that they agreed when they formed the joint government shortly after the last election.
But I do accept that the conservatives are nothing like the party of past years. Everything these days in the UK has to be ‘middle of the road’ politics that never seems to get us anywhere. So all the policies are based around VERY CENTER left & right views.
The problem is that the mainstream media is backed up with powerful lobby groups, be that unions, investors etc. that always stop politics in the form of public opinion at least from straying away from centre and towards the left or right.
It is a shame, but I would say the vast majority of the UK public follow the opinions of the likes of BBC news, Sky news, tabloids etc. etc. and as these media groups look for ‘stories’ they give an un-balanced amount of voice to the minorities......and this is what is keeping the UK from making any real progress on politics. As everything has to be centred in order to keep everyone happy,......even though the media portray the unbalanced voice of the minority views.
So its no wonder that Cameron is now very centred in politics...the party has indeed moved a significant way to the left from what it was, but how can we get anything different these days? Vote for another centered party? Because the media don’t like the others.

Even Science Follows The Rules

Well, one of them anyway:
Internet Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions.



Scientific American: Most Eagerly Awaited Rhino Porn Of All Time

(because there must have been less eagerly awaited rhino porn at some point in the past. Or rhino porn that was unawaited. WTF, I didn’t even know there WAS rhino porn. Hey, Rule 34 !!)

In 2009 four of the world’s last seven northern white rhinos (Ceratotherium simum cottoni) were moved from a zoo in the Czech Republic to Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. At the time conservationists expressed hope that returning the rhinos to semi-wild lives under their native African skies would help inspire the animals to mate and, if they were extremely lucky, save the species from extinction.

No such luck. There were a few half-hearted couplings in early 2011, neither of which resulted in pregnancies, but for the most part, the rhinos showed little to no interest in breeding. Maybe they had spent too much time in captivity. Maybe they were getting old. Maybe they just sensed that they were the last of their kind and wanted to go quietly into the night.

But now something incredible has happened. Not only have two rhinos suddenly started expressing interest in each other, they have actually gone ahead and mated.  Ol Pejeta Conservancy posted this bow-chicka-wow-wow video on April 30

Oh no. I’m not posting that video. If you want hot rhino jungle action you’ll have to follow the link. But it turns out that what got Mr. Big Horn’s interest up was straight out of a Vivid Video: the rhino fluffers brought in several other lady rhinos to get those herd boss juices flowing. And when he realized he could have a three-way, or even a four-way ... well ... bow-chicka-wow-wow, boom boom. Bow-chicka-wow-wow, boom boom.

Moon-a-geddon!

Biggest Full Moon EVAH This Weekend

Skywatchers take note: The biggest full moon of the year is due to arrive this weekend.

The moon will officially become full Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. And because this month’s full moon coincides with the moon’s perigee — its closest approach to Earth — it will also be the year’s biggest.

The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering skywatchers a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

And not only does the moon’s perigee coincide with full moon this month, but this perigee will be the nearest to Earth of any this year, as the distance of the moon’s close approach varies by about 3 percent, according to meteorologist Joe Rao, SPACE.com’s skywatching columnist. This happens because the moon’s orbit is not perfectly circular.

This month’s full moon is due to be about 16 percent brighter than average. In contrast, later this year on Nov. 28, the full moon will coincide with apogee, the moon’s farthest approach, offering a particularly small and dim full moon.

To see it to the best effect, catch the moon low on the horizon with some intervening object in your foreground to enhance the optical illusion.  Or just go sit on your roof and howl. Whatever floats your boat.

A Hole In The News

Afghan Shootings: More Often and Worse Than You Know

Can we say the “V” word now? And the “Q” one too? It’s Obama’s Vietnam! It’s a Quagmire we can’t win!!

The military is under-reporting the number of times that Afghan soldiers and police open fire on American and other foreign troops.

The U.S.-led coalition routinely reports each time an American or other foreign soldier is killed by an Afghan in uniform. But The Associated Press has learned it does not report insider attacks in which the Afghan wounds — or misses — his U.S. or allied target. It also doesn’t report the wounding of troops who were attacked alongside those who were killed.

Such attacks reveal a level of mistrust and ill will between the U.S.-led coalition and its Afghan counterparts in an increasingly unpopular war. The U.S. and its military partners are working more closely with Afghan troops in preparation for handing off security responsibility to them by the end of 2014.

In recent weeks an Afghan soldier opened fire on a group of American soldiers but missed the group entirely. The Americans quickly shot him to death. Not a word about this was reported by the International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, as the coalition is formally known. It was disclosed to the AP by a U.S. official who was granted anonymity in order to give a fuller picture of the “insider” problem.

ISAF also said nothing about last week’s attack in which two Afghan policemen in Kandahar province fired on U.S. soldiers, wounding two. Reporters learned of it from Afghan officials and from U.S. officials in Washington. The two Afghan policemen were shot to death by the Americans present.

Just last Wednesday, an attack that killed a U.S. Army special forces soldier, Staff Sgt. Andrew T. Brittonmihalo, 25, of Simi Valley, Calif., also wounded three other American soldiers. The death was reported by ISAF as an insider attack, but it made no mention of the wounded — or that an Afghan civilian also was killed.

The attacker was an Afghan special forces soldier who opened fire with a machine gun at a base in Kandahar province. He was killed by return fire.

That attack apparently was the first by a member of the Afghan special forces, who are more closely vetted than conventional Afghan forces and are often described by American officials as the most effective and reliable in the Afghan military.

Coalition officials do not dispute that such non-fatal attacks happen, but they have not provided a full accounting.



Wonderful. Even the most closely vetted Affies can’t be trusted. And now that they’ve been found out, our own officials admit to filtering the news. Wouldn’t want the real picture to get out to the taxpayers or anything.

Effing wonderful. Tell me again why are we there? Why we spent a decade and nearly built them a whole new nation while supporting the first actual elected government they’d ever had? Schools, highways, hospitals, etc. There sure seems mighty grateful.

And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

The Commie Comes Out

Forward!



New Obama campaign slogan is direct borrow from Euro Commie movements of the past.

As is, of course, the “Progressive” label, long used as cover term for commie/fascist/socialist groups.

Americans are so stupid, so dim, so ignorant of history that they’re not even bothering to try to pretend any more.

The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. [ want to bet? they damn well did. they’re just so stunningly arrogant that you can’t accept it. ]

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Vladimir Lenin founded the publication “Vpered” (the Russian word for “forward") in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet” (though also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet").

Conservative critics of the Obama administration have noted numerous ties to radicalism and socialists throughout Mr. Obama’s history, from his first political campaign being launched from the living room of two former Weather Underground members, to appointing as green jobs czar Van Jones, a self-described communist.

And when, or even if, this blows up in his face, the media will claim it was a complete misunderstanding that never meant any of that evil Red Scare stuff ever never not once. And it will get swept under the bus and ignored. But it does mean what it means, and anyone with a lick of sense can see that. What’s next, a slogan to show the poor folks that they can Move On and push Forward! off of welfare by their own hard efforts and thereby find economic independence? “Work Makes You Free!” (aka ”Arbeit Macht Frei”). No negative connotations or connections to history there either. I’m sure his legions of hard working but befuddled Jewish supporters will rally to that one.

One thing I can say about Obama: from his 2008 rally with it’s fake Olympian columns, to his Office of the President Elect complete with it’s own seal, to this slogan, and more; the man’s audacity is greater than any Caeser that ever lived. Forget four parts; Obama has enough gall to be divided into twelve.

And most of the population doesn’t have a freakin’ clue.

PS - it is no coincidence AT ALL that the media, who in their political coverage used to swap red and blue every other election to denote states won by Republicans or Democrats, settled some years ago for red for the Republicans. Just to muddy the waters that extra little bit, to lessen the long appropriate association between the Pinko Party and that similar but bolder color.
