we love stories from la belle france


My wife saw this in her paper and said, only the French, with I must say some admiration.  Which is not her default position with regard to that country.
Anyway, I sure hope it’s true cos it reads so well.  He says it isn’t but who cares? 

Can’t think of anything else to say on the subject so here.

French interior minister accused of clearing out tramps and gypsies in stylish part of Paris ‘so his wife can go shopping in peace’

Anne Gravoin was reportedly confronted by drunk down-and-out in street

The classically trained violinist previously caused controversy by mocking the prime minister’s wife

She regularly visits fashionable stores with first lady Valerie Trierweile

The French interior minister has been accused of ordering police to remove tramps and gypsies from his neighbourhood ‘so his wife can shop in peace’.

Manuel Valls, 50, reportedly told officers to show ‘zero tolerance’ in evicting homeless people from the stylish district around the Place de la Bastille near his home in Paris.

According to a satirical weekly, Le Canard Enchaîné, Mr Valls ordered the clean-up at the request of his glamorous wife, Anne Gravoin, after she allegedly complained of being accosted by a drunken down-and-out on a trip to supermarket.

Officers have now been stationed outside the Franprix store, and managers told the magazine police had now been outside for two weeks, moving loiterers on.

Yesterday, Mr Valls said ‘categorically’ denied he was behind the police clean-up operation, saying the claims were ‘unfounded’, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Paris police said the forceful approach was in response to complaints by right-wing politicians and petitions from residents over the past three months.

But local officers reportedly said the move came ‘because Madame Valls was very shocked by women begging with their babies. It was a humanitarian response.’

Ms Gravoin, a classically trained violinist, is no stranger to controversy. She was criticised in August after saying of prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault’s wife Brigitte: ‘It has to be said that a musician is a little more glamorous than Mrs Ayrault, a German teacher from the suburbs of Nantes!’

This is not the first time her husband’s heavy-handed treatment of gypsies on his own doorstep has come under scrutiny.

In August, the minister ordered police to destroy a Roma camp in his political powerbase and to deport illegal immigrants living there.

Officers armed with truncheons and shields moved into the settlement in the Paris suburb of Evry, where Mr Valls was mayor for 11 years from 2001.

He was said to have acted because the camp was ‘dangerously close to a commuter railway line’ and could create public health problems.

Heck those scum create public health and crime problems just by being alive. But the French do (it seems) a better job of deporting and breaking up their camps then is done here where they worry a lot about sensitivity and hurt feelings.

A Good Mix

Another peanut brittle recipe. I made this the other night and it came out pretty darn good. Best recipe mix so far. A touch of vanilla adds some roundness, the cream of tartar slows the crystallization down a lot, and lets you get by with using less baking soda. A taste of molasses adds a bit of dusky flavor without taking the risk of overcooking the mix and burning the sugar and the nuts. So not only is it a good recipe, it’s a smart one that’s fool-resistant.

I’m still not sure whether to use cocktail peanuts or dry roast peanuts, so I used a mixture of both. I am sure that using flavorful, fresh, brand name nuts is the way to go; bargain store nuts just wimp out. And remember, use boiling water to clean out your pot once the caramelized sugar has hardened on. Otherwise you’re in for hours of scrubbing.

1/8 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups white cane sugar
3 tbs molasses
1/2 cup white Karo corn syrup
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup cocktail peanuts ( a small jar’s worth )
3/4 cup dry roast peanuts
2 1/4 tbs cold butter
full teakettle of water

1 medium saucepan with high sides
1 very clean edgeless standard sized baking sheet
1 accurate fast reading thermometer, either digital or candy style, calibrated against boiling water
1 ovenproof bowl, dish, or pan

Take the cold butter and rub it vigorously around on the baking sheet. Slice the rest into 8 bits and leave it to soften.

Add the water, salt, cream of tartar to the saucepan and stir gently. Start it heating over medium heat. Add the molasses and the Karo, stir. When the water starts to steam gently add the sugar and stir until it dissolves. Take the heat up a notch.

Keep stirring. Be patient. The mix will boil. And boil. And boil. What we’re doing at this stage is driving off the water, which was just a carrier for the sugar.

Start the oven, set it to 220°F or just more than Warm. Put the peanuts in the ovenproof bowl and heat them. This is done to slow things down; when we add cold peanuts to hot syrup the temperature plummets and the stuff hardens up too fast, so warm peanuts will cool things less. Don’t recook the peanuts, just get them up to around 200° or so.

Keep stirring. As the temperature climbs to around 300° F make sure that you have everything right at hand, ready to go. The final step goes together in about 4 seconds, so be ready for it. The cream of tartar will make the syrup bubble like mad. Keep the burner set low enough so that you get a good rolling boil, but not one that climbs up the sides of the saucepan.

Beware! At 320°F the syrup will caramelize, and that process will be quite rapid. So watch carefully and keep stirring gently.

At 310°F turn on the teakettle on another burner, add the peanuts, and take the heat up one small notch. You do not want to scorch the nuts. So in they go, stir, and keep stirring for about a minute to get them all coated. The mix should now be just about to turn golden brown, so drop in the butter and stir it in. It will sizzle and boil.

Turn off the burner and take the pan off. Stir in the baking soda. This will cause lots more bubbles. We want those, but we don’t want to use so much baking soda that it leaves a taste behind. 1/2 tsp isn’t quite enough, 1 tsp is too much, so we’ll use a scant 3/4 tsp. And stir!!

Put the baking sheet on top of the stove over the burner you just turned off, and carefully pour the whole pot onto it, starting at the end over the burner. Get every last bit out with a spoon. It will run down the sheet a little and spread out. This recipe will cover just about the entire sheet, one peanut thick, with the caramelized syrup perhaps 1/8” thick. Let it cool. If you did it right, you’ll have a peanut rich golden puddle, the same color as a caramel or maybe just a tiny bit darker. Take the sheet off the stove and put it on a cooling rack. Turn off the oven.

Let it cool. When the water boils, use it to melt any syrup remaining in the saucepan, on your spoons, and on the thermometer.

While the mixture cools and you’ve got the dishes done, make some room in the freezer or fridge to put the baking sheet in. We want to take it from room temperature down to cold. Frozen is Ok too, but chilled is good enough.

When the stuff is cold, and you’ve had the time to ask yourself how on earth you’re going to get this puddle of frozen glue off your good cookie sheet, take the sheet in your hands and flex it. A couple of twists and some gentle arching, and the whole thing will break into chunks and pop right off. Assuming you don’t eat it all in one go, you can wrap it in wax paper and store it in a box for a few days. If you want a saltier flavor you can dust the buttered side lightly with some kosher salt.

I’d supply a picture, but our batch didn’t last that long.

england’s atty general wants to cede sovereignty to europe

Oh the joy of being part of a coming one world government.
Just think.  You won’t have to worry about unnecessary items like, sovereignty.
Way too much trouble. No. Simply allow others in a foreign country who aren’t elected in the home country, to decide on just how things in your country should be. Or be fined. Nice huh?

Well, in a sense that’s almost what the govt. here faces. A fine of I don’t know how much, because the Prime Minister says flat out that he will not have prisoners given the vote, no matter what the court in the EU says.
End of story?  Not quite.

Yesterday the Atty. General spoke out and put hoof in mouth by suggesting that England would be wrong to go against the court in Europe and it would damage England’s international reputation.  Whoa.  I guess the Prime Minister didn’t check with his atty gen. first, to see if it would be okay to act as a sovereign nation on the matter of prisoner votes.

Be interesting to see how this one plays out. 

The headline today read;

PM’s war with his law chief on prisoner votes

· European Court of Human Rights ruled prisoners should be enfranchised
· Prime Minister tells MPs that Britain will not capitulate to demands
· Comments seen as swift slapdown for Attorney General Dominic Grieve
· Mr Grieve claims Britain’s reputation will be damaged if it defies Europe
By Matt Chorley and Jason Groves
Attorney General Dominic Grieve was said to be ‘furious’ with the Prime Minister’s stance.
Last night there was speculation that Mr Grieve could even resign his Government role if the Prime Minister fails to respect the ‘rule of law’ and do as he wishes.

So that’s the background, now visit the link for the entire story.
And get a load of that last comment about failing to respect the “rule of law.” The rule laid down in Brussels, not London.  Can you see how dangerous this is. Here’s an Englishman, an attorney general, a powerful man he is, and how easily he is willing to surrender his country’s sovereignty to the EU.

Movin On Up

Little boxes
On the hillside
Little boxes
Made of ticky-tacky
And we all live
In little boxes
And we all look just the same.

Cardboard boxes
In the living room
Cardboard boxes
Filled with everything
And your life loads
Into cardboard boxes
And they all move up the hill.

mr and mrs are not politically correct and must go. out,out damn spot, says brighton

I’m not sure but this could qualify under humor as well as anything else.
But it isn’t so funny to the txpayer I bet. 
What a dumb idea. And for what?  To make sure a teeny,tiny really small portion of the population doesn’t feel hurt or left out.
People definitely are not getting smarter.  Furthermore, I think there is so little actual work available to these jerks, that they make this stuff up to justify their employment.  Mad hatters.
Seems more and more the majority population must endure the silliness imposed by the politically correct just in case some minority might be offended. And once reminded of it, some minorities suddenly and with great surprise discover that, yes indeed. They are offended and it must stop.
Take a look at this bit of loony tune moonbattery. 


Brighton Council plans to remove Mr and Mrs titles from all documents to protect city’s transgender community from offence

Plans come after council investigated the lives of the city’s transgender community

One councillor brands move ‘ludicrous’ but plan will go ahead if public back support it

By Anna Edwards

Councillors in Brighton could scrap the titles Mr and Mrs from council forms so residents don’t have to choose between genders.

All titles could be scrapped from official paperwork under new plans following an investigation by the council into transgender community in the city.

The proposal is backed by Brighton and Hove City Council deputy leader Phelim MacCafferty, who has called the titles ‘useless’.

But the new proposal has been branded ‘political correctness gone too far’ by an opposition councillor who says the idea is ‘ludicrous’.

A scrutiny panel will put forward a number of recommendations, including the scrapping of Mr and Mrs, to the council for approval in December.

Green Party deputy leader Coun MacCafferty said: ‘Trans people aren’t necessarily male or female and sometimes they don’t want to be defined by their gender.

‘Putting Mr and Mrs on a form is completely useless.

‘This is an issue that concerns most institutions from banks to mobile phone companies.

‘Why is Mr on my debit card, for instance?

‘I don’t understand why it is there.

‘We should at least examine the issue and we will have the recommendations early next month.’

Part 2, europes takeover by islam

One of our usual visits to the Gates of Vienna blog site.

H/T Gates of Vienna

Honestly, I really do believe this whole thing could end badly for us in the west. I keep on saying the west doesn’t defend itself. I guess what I mean is that the west has not become mean enough or violent enough or Nazi like.  Some not too good thinking on my part perhaps, but it’s born of frustration and anger and hate and all sorts of other things I can’t identify.  911 and the Cole and the Marine barracks weren’t bad enough. The animals here in England who did their best to take this place down on July 7, 2005 still rankles.  See according to my sometimes twisted knee jerk reaction to things like this is, kill all the bastards over the age of 5.
Hm, wait. That might be mistaken.  Drop the age to four.  See?  That’s what happens when one feels surrounded.  If it isn’t the lice ridden scraggly bearded vermin out to do us in, it’s the uncontrolled criminals, the street thugs with no relation to the rop who will do harm.

I’ve read Death of the West and believe most of it.  I also just do not see how things will ever be right again without resorting to extreme measures and btw, my kill solution includes the enablers and those of the 5th column.

Extremism in defense of my country is a virtue.  Problem, the other side may well think the same. If the revolution ever comes, it’ll be a bloodbath.


This is the second part of a four-part Israeli documentary by Zvi Yehezkeli and David Deryi about the Islamization of Europe. It has been translated from the Hebrew and subtitled in English.

The filmmaker is an Arabic-speaking Israeli whose appearance and flawless Arabic accent were sufficient to allow him to mingle freely with the Muslims in several “no-go zones” in Sweden and France, and to get an inside look at the Islamic mindset within the greater European community.

Many thanks to DarLink for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


00:02 We say “No more democracy!”
00:05 Democracy to trash.Sharia!
00:08 In Europe nowdays the cultures are clashing.
00:12 On one side - democracy,equality and secularism
00:15 on the other - Islam and noncomromising religious conservatism,
00:18 which comes with the muslim immigrants in the last few decades.
00:25 In almost every country in Europe there is a faction claiming
00:28 that Europeans are unbelievers and have to accept Sharia law.
00:32 In this country at least they do not prevent you to invite people to islam
00:36 More and more mulims are convinced that Sharia,
00:38 rules and laws of the religion of Islam,
00:41 is the right thing not just for them
00:44 but for the whole Europe.
00:46 that… that
00:47 Mohammed… Mohammed
00:49 his slave ... his slave
00:50 and his messenger...and his messenger.
00:52 That’s it. You are a Muslim now, praise the God.

iran before 1979

Had to be gone yesterday and as usual feel guilty for letting the side down.  Believe me, could not avoid it.

So anyway.
I had something else planned for this slot and as is the usual in these sort of things, something else caught my eye and I thought hey. This must be posted here and not simply the comments section.

I have no idea how the Bmews Tiger finds these things, but he does and so,

H/T Argentium G. Tiger


I have heard that he was a mean guy. Well, considering the meatballs he had to deal with, the mad mullahs and all, who wouldn’t be?

The Wrong 300

Go tell the voters, stranger passing by, that here, disobedient to the laws, they lied.

Only 300? Several orders of magnitude off the mark in my opinion. Puh-leez. Go back and find the next 300,000 now.

Colorado finds 300 more suspected noncitizens on voter rolls

DENVER – There are 300 more suspected noncitizens on Colorado’s voter rolls, Secretary of State Gessler announced Tuesday in the latest chapter of a contentious national debate over what Republicans say is vulnerability in the voting system.

The latest figures are from the 3,903 people who received letters from Gessler’s office questioning their citizenship in August. During a first round of checks, Gessler said 141 others were found to be possible noncitizens based on a federal immigration database.

Critics of Gessler, who is a Republican, have questioned his political motives and argue the checks have the potential to disenfranchise eligible voters. Some of the people who have received letters questioning their citizenship have turned out to be U.S. citizens, and a few of the original 141 have maintained they are citizens.

The majority of the people who are suspected to be noncitizens and on the rolls are unaffiliated voters, which make up more than half, and Democrats, according to data provided by Gessler’s office. The proportion in party registration breakdown is similar to the overall number of people who received letters in August.

State election officials did additional checks this month after obtaining immigration identification numbers from the state division of motor vehicles for all of people who received letters. They received letters because at one point they showed proof they weren’t U.S. citizens, such as a green card, when obtaining a driver’s license.

On the one hand, I’m glad Colorado is doing something about mistakes in their voter rolls. On the other hand, gee whiz, they’re kind of late to the party when Election Day is right around the corner and many of these illegal voters may have already sent in an absentee ballot.

What I would like to see is this story repeated several thousand times over, as every state, every county, every town purges and purifies it’s voter rolls, every 3 months. It is entirely inexcusable in this day and age of computerized everything: the data validation and cross database checking for even a million voters shouldn’t take more than a few seconds. And you had best believe that all levels of government are digitally connected, especially after 9/11. 

Frankly, a properly kept voter roll is one of the key points to restoring faith in our government, so I’d like to see those officials who stand against this tell us why. Offer us your reasoning and your mea culpas; I’ll even give you a nice tall wooden platform to orate from. One with a trapdoor in it and a bit of sturdy overhead scaffolding above it.

Dat’s Raaaacis!

Oh Sure. Blame It On White Guys. Uh Huh.

Black woman turns herself into kiki torch, blames the Klan. Science says she flicked her own Bic.


Police: Black Woman Lied About KKK Setting Her On Fire

WINNSBORO, La. (AP) — Forensic evidence indicates that a 20-year woman suffering from extensive burns set herself on fire then invented a story about being doused in flammable liquid by three men who she said also wrote the initials KKK and a racial slur on her car, state police said Tuesday.

On Sunday at 8 p.m., Sharmeka Moffitt called 911 from a walking trail in Winnsboro and told authorities she had been doused in flammable liquid by three men wearing white hoodies. She suffered extensive burns on more than half her body and was taken to LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment.

After two days of investigating the case, authorities said Tuesday that the forensic evidence indicates Moffitt set herself on fire.

Gee, no Kidding

Liar Liar Pants On Fire


Update: And Her Too

(Reuters) - Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.

The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.

The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi assault, which President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials ultimately acknowledged was a “terrorist” attack carried out by militants with suspected links to al Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers.

Administration spokesmen, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, citing an unclassified assessment prepared by the CIA, maintained for days that the attacks likely were a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim film.

There is simply no way to spin this. The bald truth is right there: the President and the Secretary of State and presumably several other top government people, knew both AS IT HAPPENED and IMMEDIATELY AFTER that the attack on our embassy was an act of terrorism. And then they flat out lied about it to the American public FOR WEEKS.

So, why were the leaders of our nation covering up for terrorists? Why are they in collusion with our enemies? Why are they treating what is pretty much one of the top definitive Casus Belli going as a criminal activity? Didn’t we put that approach behind us forever on 9/12/01?

And when the drone camera footage surfaces, date and time stamped, showing 3 or 4 drones covering things as they happened, transmitting the images to Washington in real time? Will anyone wonder why nothing was done in the 5 or 6 hours that the attacks lasted? When the Navy was just offshore, ready and eager to execute any kind of extraction or confrontation imaginable? What then? Will it even impact the poles? If not abject treason, how is this not total dereliction of duty?

Update: US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice knew too, as well as FOUR HUNDRED security personnel near the tops of multiple federal security agencies.

The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.

Fox News was told that an estimated 300 to 400 national security figures received these emails in real time almost as the raid was playing out and concluding. People who received these emails work directly under the nation’s top national security, military and diplomatic officials, Fox News was told.

The first email, timed at 4:05 p.m. Washington time - or 10:05 p.m. Benghazi time, 20-30 minutes after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission allegedly began - carried the subject line “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack” and the notation “SBU”, meaning “Sensitive But Unclassified.”

The text said the State Department’s regional security office had reported that the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was “under attack. Embassy in Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well.”

The message continued: “Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four ... personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.”

A second email, headed “Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” and timed 4:54 p.m. Washington time, said that the Embassy in Tripoli had reported that “the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi had stopped and the compound had been cleared.” It said a “response team” was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.

A third email, also marked SBU and sent at 6:07 p.m. Washington time, carried the subject line: “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.”

The message reported: “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”

While some information identifying recipients of this message was redacted from copies of the messages obtained by Reuters, a government source said that one of the addresses to which the message was sent was the White House Situation Room, the president’s secure command post.

getting it back together

Ok, I’m starting to come up out of the fog here.

I think we’re both past the very worst part of mourning the MIL. We’ve taken care of the physical things, closed down the house for awhile, arranged for a memorial mass. Good enough for right now.

We’re packing everything up into boxes and throwing things away, because we’re moving at the end of the month. From down here, halfway up the hill, to up there, on top of the hill. Seriously, we’re moving barely a quarter mile away. But to a bigger better place that we will own, not rent. And it has it’s own bit of yard too. We’ve arranged for a couple strong young backs to help us, the out of work husbands of friends. Hey, keep the money in the extended family if you can, right?

So now I’m making phone calls and sending emails, doing the change of address thing and trying to set up new services and arrange for the old ones to be finalized. This includes a new ISP, so there may be a couple days when I have no computer at all. No internet access. Arrrggh11!! Crivens!! grin

We’re caught up on bowling leagues. I’m not blogging about it, and neither team is particularly blogworthy this season, but I rolled in the high 5s last night, and we won big enough to swap places with the team ahead of us in the standings. Movin’ on up!

I have to get hold of an ENT today, and a dentist too if I can. I’ve had an ear infection these past few weeks which has caused me to go 90% deaf. Some inner ear thing. Went through a whole course of treatment with a regular doctor ... I’m still deaf. So it’s time for the specialist. I’ve heard from others who have had a similar bug that they get a major antibiotic and a big dose of prednisone or other hefty steroid. I’ve been on Nasonex spray, which is too light to do much of anything in these circumstances I think.  And I need a dentist. I lost a whole tooth the other day. Damn. I’d had a root canal done on it a bunch of years ago, then part of the tooth cracked off a couple months back, and then a couple days later, clank, the whole metal filling thing fell out while I was eating. Nothing left in there but the root bone edges and an outside shard. Guess I’ll have to get one of those Snap On™ teeth put in.

So events in the next 2 weeks are really going to suck up my life, even more than other events ate my time the past 4 months. Then maybe ... maybe ... things can get back to normal?

lots of law, lots of disorder, not much justice, in fact, maybe none.

There is so god damned much evil in our world, and the powers that be seem to make it that much worse.  Excuses for the vermin who commit crime after crime for years with little consequence.  Early release even for violent low lifes.
Men abusing women or threatening violence given orders to stay away.  Oh right. Harsh words from a court are really going to put the frighteners on the scum.
And how many times are we going to hear that some miserable rat bastard is released early or else given bail, and immediately goes out and kills the person who has been granted a restraining order.  It’s sickening.  Nobody wants to see an innocent person convicted of any kind of crime.  No one would condone the death penalty given an innocent man or woman.  But good grief, there are criminals out there who all but advertise their careers in crime.  If the state doesn’t want to end the worthless life of killers and other overly violent people, then they should be put away for life and given no perks and all rights forfeited.  After all, what rights of their victims were honoured?  True justice would also demand an eye for an eye in the most literal sense.

Not long ago a young man who it is said was mentally unbalanced, tore the eyes out of his former girl friend.  It is highly doubtful he will spend the rest of his life in jail.
I’d say don’t jail the SOB. Rip his eyes out and ask him how it feels and how he likes it. 

The cards are stacked against the law abiding public.  The public I think knows it, and the bad guys definitely know it.  Btw, with regard to the guy who blinded that young woman.  Might be a great idea to treat his defense attorney to the same. See how he likes it, and then ask him to be your defense council.

But no. The public will continue to be at the mercy of not just the criminal community, but their civil right and no justice system enablers.
A pox on all those Mo**********rs.

So here’s the latest.  See the link for a bit more. The frighteners I believe have been put on the public, but not as we see, on the criminal.

A murder by a criminal on bail is committed every ten days, and the real number could be even higher

By Daniel Martin

A murder is committed every ten days by offenders out on bail, according to figures released yesterday.

At least 37 criminals were convicted of murder while on bail for another offence in 2011 – around three every month.

Over the past 12 years, 436 murders have been committed by people granted their freedom while under investigation for a variety of crimes in England and Wales.
The total could be even higher because the fact that a murderer has been on bail is not always recorded by police, the Ministry of Justice admits.

Overall, around 180 crimes are committed every day by someone who had been granted bail. The official statistics – released on the day David
Cameron made a speech pledging to be ‘tough and intelligent’ on crime – will re-ignite the debate over soft justice.

Last night the chairman of the home affairs select committee called for a review of the bail rules, saying those who are dangerous should always be remanded in custody.

Keith Vaz, who obtained the information following a parliamentary question, told the Daily Mail: ‘We need to review our bail laws. I am shocked by these figures.
‘Judges must consider very carefully applications for bail. These criminals have already been identified by the justice system as potentially dangerous, and we must use that knowledge to keep our communities safe.’


Critics said the pressure to reduce the prison population means that judges are granting bail to more and more dangerous offenders.

The statistics show that 436 offenders were convicted of a murder committed while they were on bail between 2000 and 2011.

Over the course of past decade, the total has been generally rising, from 25 in 2002 to 37 last year. A high point of 50 was reached in 2007. Justice minister Helen Grant admitted the total could be an underestimate.

‘The recording of information on whether or not the offence was committed while the offender was on bail is known to be incomplete,’ she said.
‘This is because the police have a number of ways of recording the bail status of an offender.’

She added: ‘The information held does not indicate the nature of the earlier offence for which the bail was granted but it is likely that most of the offences summarised in the table will have been committed while the offender was on bail for a less serious offence.’

David Green, from the Civitas think tank, said the justice system was ‘giving the benefit of the doubt to people who don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt’ by allowing them bail.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
