anything that looks this putrid is already dead but hasn’t got the message. this is a disgusting pix

Right.  I know.  You didn’t want to see this sort of disgusting and ignorant looking thing so damn early.  But hey, can you imagine in your wildest and even most drunken dreams, of being married to that slug? 

The slag is going to jail btw, along with siblings.

These ground crawlers should be made to westernize their names.

What we have here is quite a mix.  Muslim family arranging a marriage, the women for whom it is being done wants no part of it.
Anyway .... she loves someone else.  But there’s a catch, if you want to call it that.

The someone else she fancies is .... another woman.  And not a muslim either.  Woo-hoo.
So her sisters go after the girl friend and beat the hell outta her, and get themselves arrested.

It really is not funny because they actually tried to kidnap the girl friend.  I think they had they been able to, they might have killed her. And she is a very frightened woman now. Don’t blame her for that as you’ll see when you read.

There’s loads of photos at the link.  Yuk. What a motley group of human garbage.

These dramatic images show three Muslim siblings attempting to kidnap and rob their sister’s lesbian lover after they found out about the relationship.

Sarah Harrison, 35, was targeted as she left work in Blackburn, Lancashire. As she was attacked, one of the siblings shouted: ‘you’ve messed with the wrong Muslims.’

The women’s sister Nazma Ditta, 27, one of six sisters and three brothers, had been due to enter into an arranged marriage.

But Nazma had begun a secret relationship with Miss Harrison when both women worked at a clothes shop in the town.

Miss Harrison was confronted by sisters Atfah Ditta, 32, and Ghazala Ditta, 31, who got out of a parked silver Toyota Corolla car on June 20 last year.

They were joined by another sister Nighat Morris, 38, and brother Tahmoor Ditta, 26, who produced a metal tool which he brandished at a work colleague of Miss Harrison.

The three women then assaulted Miss Harrison who was dragged around by her hair and kicked as they tried to force her into the car.

The victim was repeatedly punched in the face and to her arms in an effort to remove her handbag and force her into the vehicle.

Her bag was taken from her but she managed to prevent herself being dragged into the car by holding on to its sides.

She was left standing at the side of the road as the group got back into their vehicle and drove away.

In the days leading up to the attack, members of the Ditta family had confronted the victim at her workplace and asked her about the whereabouts of their sister.

They also asked her work colleagues about where she parked her car and waited at various locations for her to leave work.

Miss Harrison later told police: ‘I can’t work comfortably now and I think about people throwing acid in my face. Anyone Asian I don’t know could be associated with the people who attacked me. I have trouble sleeping.

‘I feel uncomfortable sleeping on my back because of where I was kicked. My temple still hurts from where I was punched. I have a permanent reminder of the attack by the scar under my eye.

‘I have to sell my house and move somewhere where Nazma’s family won’t find us. I have had to find a different job which is not easy because I loved my work.’

Today the siblings appeared at Preston Crown Court.

Ghazala Ditta, Atfah Ditta and Nighat Morris pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to conspiracy to commit actual bodily harm, attempted kidnap and robbery. They were all jailed for five years and four months.

Tahmoor Ditta pleaded guilty to the above charges and also admitted assault and possession of an offensive weapon and was sentenced to six years.

Two other sisters, Tosif Ditta, 35, and Nayyar Mehmood, 37 had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit actual bodily harm and were imprisoned for three-and-a-half years.

The children’s mother, Rani Ditta, 55, had been charged with conspiracy to kidnap but in November the prosecution offered no evidence against her.

The court heard Nazma was the only girl in her family who was unmarried and several potential suitors had been found for her.

All claimed they acted out of concern for their sister. Defence lawyer Adam Watkins, defending Tosif, said: ‘She did what she did out of a misjudged sense of what was right for her sister. It was a misguided sense of love.

Graham Blower for Nayyar said: ‘This would have happened to Miss Harrison if she was Mr, Mrs, black, white, pink or orange.’

But Judge Graham Knowles QC said: ‘This is a case about power and contol. It is about striking terror and attempting to control not just the body but the will. This was a group ambush and you struck with the terror that all of you intended.’

Scrutiny of American military bases in Britain could be increased dramatically.

Posting this because ... I am almost certain it won’t make the news in the USA.

I suppose Brits have some rights on what goes on in their own country.  What really bothers me though is, this whole thing is the work of the left and the useful idiots who enable them.  However, if it’s an American base, aren’t we paying rent for the place?
Just some food for thought with the info for you that, this report comes from a left wing newspaper.  Sometimes they do have opinions from the right, and at least they are not the Guardian.  So I skip the really anti American diatribes from a few of the jerks who will never find anything we do the right thing, unless they approve of it.  Which translated of course means we would have to come around to their way of thinking and seeing things. They’d be happy to approve of us then.
Screw em.  It’s really more than spying on friends although yes, that does bother the heck out of our critics friend and foe alike.
But the real underlying thing that has their collective knickers in a twist, is America’s use of drones.  Especially drones being launched or even controlled from their homeland or possessions.

Peers call for proper scrutiny of American military bases in UK used for drone strikes and mass spying

By Cahal Milmo

Scrutiny of American military bases in Britain could be increased dramatically for the first time in more than 60 years under cross-party proposals provoked by evidence that the installations are being used for drone strikes and mass spying activities.

Draft proposals tabled by peers from all three major parties demand that the Government overhaul the “outdated” rules under which the Pentagon’s network of UK outposts operate following claims of British complicity in US drone missions in the Middle East and eavesdropping on European allies.

The Independent revealed last year that RAF Croughton, the US Air Force base and CIA relay station in Northamptonshire, was used to funnel back to Washington data from the network of diplomatic spy posts implicated in the monitoring of the mobile phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The same base has a secure data link to a US counter-terrorism facility in Djibouti used for drone strikes in Yemen while questions remain about the use of other US bases in Britain, in particular the National Security Agency eavesdropping facility at RAF Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire.

The revelations have fuelled concern in Parliament that British oversight of the bases, which operate under the 1951 Status of Forces Agreement, is outmoded and in urgent need of drastic revision because the legislation was drawn up long before technology such as drones or mass surveillance.

Three senior peers from the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats - along with a crossbencher - have tabled amendments to defence legislation currently going through the House of Lords demanding that the Government considers the introduction of measures including a new “scrutiny group” for each US base to ensure all activities carried out comply with British law.

Under current arrangements, each US base is nominally under the command of a British officer but critics say meaningful oversight is impossible.

There’s a lot more to read on this topic and some of you will find it of interest.

slightly fun

Simple Russian shooting game. Put 3 rounds on target. Reset, then try again. And again.

Hey, Rodger found it first .


Somehow I managed to click on something that took me to this place, which may be some kind of games portal into the Belarusian Army. Not sure; you’ll spend a lot of time with; all I know so far is that you have to be at least 11 years old. Eventually I clicked on somewhere that had a UK flag, and clicking that gave me the English language version of the portal to the Belarus Ministry of Defense.  Seriously. Dudes! Wait, it might only be a public information portal. Right, like I can read Belarusian?

cranky pants


I want to have a cup of tea. Is that asking too much? Just a damn cup of tea.

We have a tea caddy overflowing with tea bags. We have 4 boxes of tea in the closet, and an airtight plastic box full of the stuff.

We have a Pillsbury Doughboy ceramic countertop sculpture 2 feet tall. His head comes off and he’s hollow inside. Maybe he’s supposed to be a cookie jar? Whatever. He’s filled with tea bags.


unctuous bastard

Green tea. Herb tea. Decaffeinated green herb tea. Camomile. Rose hips. Licorice. Spice. Several kinds of Indian Chai, which is actually quite good, but it’s just not a proper cuppa. Anti-oxidant green tea. Morning Thunder. Evening Bliss. Sweet Dreams. Medicinal tea. Tea for drinking while you soak in the tub while gently illuminated by organic beeswax candles. You name it.

We have enough faggola healtharama blends and hippie-dippy herbal-gerbil varieties of powdered crap in porous bags to open a fucking commune in Seattle. Groovy baby; peace, love, and granola. Like, wow. 4 kinds of sugar too, plus that cactus juice agave nectar stuff. And don’t even get me started on the “milk” in the fridge; apparently science has figured out how to milk almonds, coconuts, and soybeans. Probably clams and tigers too if I look hard enough. Cows? WTF are cows? No hay vacas aqui senor!

Not one damn actual tea bag in the whole place. God forbid actual loose tea in a tin. No English Breakfast, no Irish Breakfast, no Earl Gray. No Tetley. No bags from the Chinese take-out. No Typhoo, no Yorkshire. PG Tips? Are you effin’ kidding me??

Finally I found an ancient, dessicated, stained, and seemingly chewed on packet of Lipton. Mixing that with one citrusy Constant Comment gave me something hot and brown in a mug. It did leave a rime around the cup, as if I’d invited a muddy hippo into the swimming pool. Pretty gross.

guess I’m feeling better if I can manage the effort to get pissy over a lack of tea. Hey, I even peeled the sheets off the bed and dragged a pile of laundry down to the wash. And then I went back and gathered up the snowstorm of used tissues off the floor.

yeah, definitely getting better. Better enough to be seriously pissed off that I went through what I went through: hello, WTF was all this medicine doing for me?? What, curled up on the bathroom floor at 4am, leaking exponentially from both ends as I gasped for breath and fully expected to drown in my own mucus, coughing so hard I felt like I broke my ribs and put my back out, that was supposed to happen? So glad I was on all those pills then! Wouldn’t want to know what things would have been like without them.

going to hell in a handcart

A couple of item in the news this week past have really upset Littlejohn. Not too sure I can fully agree with regard to the overweight of some.
Yeah, there are too many who over indulge and then expect others to pick up the pieces.  But Littlejohn paints almost all of them with one brush. 
Which isn’t’ entirely fair.

It’s a longish article so I’ll post a small bit of it.

It ends with his opinion that, “ We are all going to Hell in a handcart.”

You can’t park here… you’re not fat enough

By Richard Littlejohn

Two stories stood out for me this week. Both are damning indictments of modern Britain and proof positive of the idiocy of the soft-headed, socialist imbeciles who run so much of what passes for our ‘world class public services’.

The first comes from Walsall, where obese motorists are being issued with disabled parking badges so they don’t have to waddle too far from their cars to the nearest kebab shop.

The second hails from York, where people arrested for being drunk and disorderly are being sent on courses to boost their ‘self-esteem’.


Let’s start in the West Midlands. What possessed Walsall Council to hand out ‘blue badges’ to gutbuckets? OK, so there is a minuscule number of people suffering from rare medical and genetic conditions which make it difficult to control their weight.

But most of those categorised as ‘obese’ are not genuinely disabled. Nor are they ‘victims’ by any stretch of the imagination. They are just fat and greedy and won’t stop stuffing their faces.

Already, the NHS spends a fortune treating patients suffering from a variety of ailments caused by self-inflicted gluttony. Diabetes and heart trouble brought on by pigging out on fast-food is said to have reached epidemic proportions.

Stop eating so much and start taking exercise every day, you hideous hippos. Obesity isn’t like a flu epidemic. You can’t catch obesity. It isn’t inflicted on people by dark forces beyond their control.

Blue Badge for handicapped.

These selfish individuals are grotesquely overweight because they lack willpower and moral fibre.

They have the option to diet or die, but they do not deserve special treatment funded by taxpayers.

No one should have an automatic right to an expensive gastric band provided by a hard-pressed public health service, already struggling to provide life-saving drugs to patients suffering from real illnesses.

It is estimated that up to two million people could qualify for bariatric surgery and that by 2050 half of us will be officially ‘obese’.

By then, Britain’s population will be over 70 million. At this rate there won’t be enough gastric bands to go round and the whole country will be one giant disabled car park.

You can bet, however, that where Walsall leads, other councils will follow in the name of ‘compassion’ and being ‘non-judgmental’. They’ll be handing out blue badges by the tens of thousands to anyone who can prove they have ‘mobility issues’.

No, their ‘mobility issues’ are caused by a revolting, self-inflicted excess of flab which their podgy little legs will no longer support over a distance of more than a few yards.

One of the other curses of contemporary Britain is how the centres of our towns and cities have been blighted by binge drinking.

Every weekend, police have to deal with an orgy of vomit-splattered violence and drunken disorder.

How many times have we seen pictures of young women with their frocks round their waists and their knickers round their ankles wallowing in a pool of their own puke and urine?

This isn’t because the young men and women involved are ‘victims’ of alcohol. It’s because they set out deliberately to get utterly bladdered on cheap booze served in ghastly drinking barns. They enjoy getting mortally intoxicated.

But now York Council has decided that it’s not really their fault, poor darlings. Those legless louts and lasses lying in the gutter are actually suffering from ‘low self-esteem’ which forces them to down pint after pint and cocktail after cocktail against their will.

So anyone arrested five times for being falling-down drunk and disorderly will not be thrown in the slammer, they will be sent on a course to reflect on their ‘behaviour and self-image issues’.

Don’t you just hate that word ‘issues’, a weasely catch-all expression to excuse anyone who is unable to control their own base impulses?

Why should we be expected to accept that they are somehow victims of a disease or compelled by societal pressures to act as they do? And that they can only be ‘cured’ or indulged by a cuddle and lashings of taxpayers’ dosh? Who dreams up this drivel?

just for the heck of it ….

It’s been raining steadily since late yesterday, very hard at times, and quite windy as well.
My pc faces a large front window in what once was a dining room only. And btw in spite of the heat being on, it’s one of those damp chills that passes by in waves.
I actually enjoy misty and rainy weather.  Even the cold isn’t too much of a bother and I find I can think better in this weather than I do when the sun shines.
Don’t care to drive in it though. Or go walking a dog as I have seen some folks do. Even in the worst of weather, I have seen folks out there jogging. But not today.  Anyway it’s a bit on the dismal side and so I thought, just for the heck of it, I’d post this.

city to raise self esteem of yobs and drunks …. you pay, you pay

Their self esteem?  Who the hell cares what idiots think of themselves?
Another softly, softly approach.
Why not try knocking out a few teeth and breaking a few bones.
Problem solved almost overnight, if the slobs that drink and terrorize the community are dealt with in ways they will do their best to avoid in future.
They would learn by example.  Oh dear. My doze iz bowken.
Doubtful they’d come back for more.

Drunk and disorderly troublemakers could be sent on course to boost their SELF ESTEEM

· One-day course encourages troublemakers to ‘reflect’ on bad behaviour
· Focus is on boosting self-esteem and self-image rather than punishment
· Offenders can be arrested up to five times before facing court proceedings
· Taxpayer-funded course will be trialled in York beginning in February
· Flagship measure is designed to curb city’s growing binge-drinking culture

By John Hall

Troublemakers arrested for being drunk and disorderly could be sent on a course to boost their self-esteem - at taxpayers’ expense.
Under the scheme, offenders can be arrested up to five times and still escape court proceedings provided they attend a one-day session designed to help them reflect on their self image.

The course will be launched next month in York, reportedly a flagship measure in the local council’s effort to curb the city’s growing binge drinking culture.
Council bosses say rather than just focus on booze the 18-month pilot scheme will encourage the troublemakers to reflect on their ‘behaviour and self-image’.
Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance said: ‘This is a farcical waste of taxpayers’ money...Those who go out, get tanked up and then disrupt the peace should be dealt with by the police, not sent on a self-image course.’

He added: ‘Politicians should focus on easing the burden on ordinary, responsible drinkers rather than mollycoddling those causing trouble.’
A council report says: ‘The project will be aimed at York residents who have been arrested for public order and drunkenness offences (maximum of 5 offences).’

‘Those who are alcohol dependent, who have mental health issues or are prolific offenders, will be excluded… The individual will be bailed for 14 days and then given the option to attend a day long course, in which case the bail will be cancelled,’ it added.

‘If the option of the course is not taken up, then the person will be charged for the offence,’ the report went on.
The course will be provided by Lifeline and will encourage people to reflect on their behaviour and self-image, rather than purely alcohol issues.

Previous studies have shown that the impact of the course lasts for about a year, after which participants typically go back to offending.


Well of course they do.  No surprise there. But they wouldn’t if they knew they’d have the crap beat out of them. Can’t do that of course. Might violate their right to puke in public and raise hell and spit at cops etc.

36 or 37 years, who cares it still sucks

I am still sick. Much better, thanks, but still a hacking chestful of mucus. Could be worse; I still ain’t dead. Actually, if it weren’t for trying to breathe, I’d be just fine. Or trying to hear; the moment the Prednisone presecription wore off, I lost my hearing. Most of it anyway. Gee, swell.

I think I’ll go back to the doctor and glare at him until he gives me another batch of medicine.

So to make things more wonderful, it’s snowing again. Snowing pretty well actually. It’s been coming down all day, and I guess by now we’ve had at least 2” of the crap. Yee ha. In theory, it’s going to warm up a bit for tomorrow ... all the way up to sub-freezing ... then drop down to the 1s and 2s again and hit us with another storm system on Tuesday.

Today is the 36th anniversary of the historic Ohio Blizzard of ‘78, which dropped record setting amounts of snow while bringing hurricane force winds. A few days later a massive snow-i-cane slammed the New England coast and brought the world there to a halt for more than a week.

The winter of 1976-1977 may have been a touch colder in the NY Metro area I grew up in, ( I recall ice skating on the local pond the week after Halloween ), but 1977-78 brought us more snow, more ice, more drifts ... more BRRRR ... than even the fabled winter of 1959-60 (when cars needed to put flags on their antennas so see each other at intersections because there was just so damned much snow on the ground). 

Either way, both years were terrible, long, brutal winters. And both were indicative of Global Cooling, because We’re All Gonna Die and it’s All America’s Fault. Right. The new Ice Age.

Winter this year has generated MORE SNOW so far in the Ohio area than either of those historic seasons. The cold days got here earlier, have been colder, and have brought more snow to many areas.

The latest reports tell us how the Arctic Vortex is going to stay with us for some time, bringing freezing rotten weather all the way to Alabama and Florida, and keeping us on ice for weeks more.

And this time around, it’s all the fault of Global Warming, because We’re All Gonna Die and it’s All America’s Fault. Right. The new Tropical Age.

I’m sick of it, and I’m sick of being sick.

And now folks are getting all worried about the Superbowl, set to be played in Giants Stadium (aka MetLife stadium) here in New Jersey next week? Dummies ... this is why they built the Astrodome. Hey stupid: it’s winter. Go somewhere warm ya daft scroobie!

Besides, right now I’m all pissed off at the Superbowl people; there won’t be any parking lot parties going on at all, everyone is going to have to take a bus to get to the game (which will call a monstrous screw-up, guaranteed), and no even NOT under the official profit-making thumb of the NFL will be allowed to say Super-anything. And there won’t be any parties anywhere near the game itself. Certainly not in the parking lot. Because. Terrorist Security. And Money. Probably mostly money.

I’m about fed up with all of this crap, from one end to the other.

on stage and in film since 1944 and before, and still at it. Angela Lansbury, Goddess of the 40s

I think I may be a bit self indulgent here but stay with me for a minute or two.  I have my reasons.  Aside from being in love with an image of a woman from the 1940s.


This won’t be the first time I have posted photos of Angela Lansbury here.  In fact, it isn’t even the second time.  It may be the third time but there’s so much more than photos. I learned some things quite by accident today, and also heard an interview on the radio.  She’s making a return to the London stage in a very special theater.  That’s one reason for my interest.

1944. That would make her age 19 in this shot, if it taken in or after October of that year.

I have long held the view which I know is one opinion and worth more to me then it might be to our readers.  That opinion being, she was once the single most beautiful woman in Hollywood and possibly the world.  Hollywood never really knew how to use her talent, in spite of her being nominated for the Oscar 2wice. In fact, in 1944 she was nominated for her first film when she was 18, some months shy of her 19th birthday. 
She was again nominated the following year for another film.  At the time, she was the youngest to receive a nomination.


For me it all began when.

Going back a very long time ago, I saw a movie the title of which is long forgotten although the image of a blonde Goddess planted itself firmly inside my head.
It was not a large or leading part, she didn’t as I recall have many lines, it was in “glorious technicolor” as Hollywood referred to the process.  But I didn’t know who she was.  And it was many yrs later that I discovered her name.  AND .... it was only due to my association with bmews and the net, that I found early photos of her.  Which at the time I shared on this site and one or two of you expressed some surprise that they were looking at the actress they knew only from the TV show,” Murder, She Wrote”, which was not my kind of thing and so I never watched it.  By then of course the image of the sex siren had given way to, well, hate to say it.  Old age.

Which now brings me back to where I wanted to be to explain something.
During the radio interview she stated that she was never a beautiful woman and was thankful for that, because as film beauty fades, so do the parts and especially if you’re a leading actress.

Mom and:  not so pretty daughter?

However, she continued by saying that she was always able to get roles as a character actress. And the characters got older with her.  Of course ... she has been highly successful on the stage over the years, until getting the role as Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote.
What floored me was her belief if true, that she was not a beautiful girl or woman.  Horse feathers.  Good gosh.  Her bar must be impossibly high.
How does one get above Goddess rank?  Should that not be the very summit? 

Angela Brigid Lansbury, CBE (born 16 October 1925) is a British actress and singer in theatre, television and films. Her career has spanned eight decades and earned an unsurpassed number of performance Tony Awards (tied with Julie Harris and Audra McDonald), with five wins. Her first film appearance was in the film Gaslight (1944) as a conniving maid, for which she received an Academy Award nomination at the age of eighteen; she earned her second nomination the following year for The Picture of Dorian Gray. Among her other films are The Manchurian Candidate (1962), Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Anastasia (1997).

The 88-year-old actress is about to perform in London’s West End for the first time in almost 40 years, as the medium Madame Arcati in Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit.”
Lansbury won a Tony Award for the role on Broadway.
Last month the actress, who was born in London and moved to the United States in her teens, was made a dame — the female equivalent of a knight — by Queen Elizabeth II.
She said she was pleased to be performing at London’s Gielgud Theatre, where her mother, actress Moyna Macgill, made her stage debut in 1918.
“She was a lovely actress,” Lansbury said. “I get all my talent from her.”

the bbc

Angela’s twin brothers, Edgar Jr., and Bruce , both went on to become Broadway producers, but Bruce is better known for his work on television, such as the series The Wild Wild West, Mission Impossible, and his sister’s Murder She Wrote.

In her later years, Angela Lansbury’s mother made appearances on such television series as Studio One, The Twilight Zone, Dr. Kildare, Mister Ed, I Dream of Jeannie and My Favorite Martian.
She died of throat cancer in Los Angeles, just a few weeks shy of her 80th birthday.

“I’m in a very enviable position, being able to work like this 45 years later. It’s always beginning! I never have a sense of finishing up, just new things beginning. When I die, they’re going to carry me off a stage.”

Angela Lansbury

brit muslim makes court history. and as usual for that group, for the wrong reason

Not my country and not any of my business and should not be any of my concern.
And it isn’t. Exactly. 

What concerns me is how easily this country and most of the west if not all of the west, bleats about how fair minded and all inclusive and all the rest of the left wing crap spouted in the name of democracy and human rights.  The rights industry even makes it sound like we’re dealing with real humans most of the time.
Like this woman. Well I guess it’s a woman.  It says it is.

Her name is Rebekah Dawson.  I guess Rebecca, being the faster and cleaner and easier way of writing it just was not good enough for her mummy.  Hmmm. Wonder if she knows who her mummy was. Perhaps she could ask.
That isn’t a muslim name. Is it?
Must be careful not to say anything about her color and cause offence. Oh what the hell. She’s one of our burdens but 2wice over since she’s a muzzie as well.

Here’s the thing.

This case has been on for a while and it all started last year.  A judge ruled at the time that she would not be allowed to give evidence in court if she insisted on keeping her face covered.  So ppl thought good.  She got told and maybe things will right themselves.  In your dreams.

I have heard and I have read some muslims claim that there isn’t anything in their religion or the Koran that specifically insists women be covered head to toe, only that women must dress with modesty.  But as we all know, the more radical element among them does not agree.  Of course not and there is no reason why they should agree or come to terms with the idea that if you live in the west, it is not a help to anyone if you insist on living like it’s still the 7th century. Or earlier.
And why should they agree to anything when the west panders to them and concedes and accommodates their insane demands and lifestyle.
No.  We’re the ones that are supposed to change, one would think, with judgements coming from courts like the ones seen over the past few years and now this one.

The headline in the paper read as follows.

In Court, first woman to face trial in full face veil.

A woman made legal history yesterday as she stood trial in a full face veil.

Rebekah Dawson, 22, became the first defendant to wear the covering at court after a judge ruled ‘freedom of religious expression’ should be recognised.
District Judge Peter Murphy told jurors that Dawson had a right to wear a niqab during the trial but that she would have to remove it if she wanted to give evidence.


He ruled: ‘The courts must respect and protect religious rights as far as that can possibly be done.
‘But in my view, it is necessary to the working of the crown court in a democratic society for the court, not the defendant to control the conduct of judicial proceedings.’

At Blackfriars Crown Court yesterday, Dawson argued that forcing her to remove the veil to give evidence violated her right to a fair trial under the European Convention on Human Rights.
But Judge Murphy rejected the application, saying that jurors being unable to see her was contrary to the principle of open justice which overrides religious belief.

He invited the defendant to remove the garment, but after a brief adjournment Dawson returned to court still wearing her niqab.
Judge Murphy told jurors: ‘I am aware some people have certain feelings about it [the niqab], but if you have any feelings you must put them aside completely… She is perfectly entitled in this country to dress as she wishes.’

He added: ‘The courts have for many years, indeed centuries, ruled that when a jury have been asked to evaluate evidence a witness gives it is important for jurors to see them … It is not possible to do that if they cannot see the witness’ face.’

Dawson, and her brother Matthias, 32, are accused of threatening a caretaker at Finsbury Park Mosque, north London, after he let three female charity workers from Portugal – who were not wearing veils – enter the building on June 4 last year.
Dawson, of Hackney, east London, and her brother Matthias Dawson, of Sydenham, south-east London, deny a single charge of witness intimidation.
The trial continues.

So where are we?  This seems like a rehash of the previous crap coming from the court last year.  This is a court. In a western country that has not seen people with covered faces in the happy past when there were so few of those kind of life forms roaming around.  And certainly not in the courts.  Appease, appease, appease.  Yeah. That’s the ticket alright.

Worked just fine at Munich in 38.

Oh. Right. It did. Didn’t it?  But it worked for the wrong side if I recall.

a crime and a happy end for the public at large

It’s a feel good story for a change.  Nice too, to know that a career in crime has ended early for one scum sucking toad.

Lets hope the would be victims here don’t suddenly find themselves under arrest.  But the “investigation” goes on.

Here’s something to make us all smile.

Would-be mugger ‘drowned in canal after victims fought back and pushed him in’

Petty criminal Steven Cane, 25, died after being shoved into the water
Police believe he was trying to mug two men with a young accomplice
A boy, 17, was arrested and charged with causing grievous bodily harm
The mugging victims, aged 28 and 34, will be questioned by detectives

By Rob Cooper

A petty career criminal plunged into a canal and drowned as he tried to rob two men on a city centre towpath, it is believed.

Steven Cane, 25, was rushed to hospital after falling into the Rochdale Canal, in Manchester, but died two days later.

One of the two men he targeted also fell into the water but clambered out and has made a full recovery.

I think it should be unlawful to try and save the life of any criminal, especially when he is injured while committing an offense. Let the bastard just die and free up society by one less turd.

The two men who shoved the mugger into the water will be questioned by police about the incident - but officers are not planning to treat them as suspects as it is believed they were victims of crime.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out but it is thought Cane - who is said to have a ‘catalogue’ of previous convictions - died from drowning.

A 17-year-old boy - suspected of being the robber’s accomplice - was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery and attempted murder following the incident.

He was later charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and occasioning actual bodily harm and a third charge of obstructing police and is now awaiting trial. A third suspect was released without charge.

The incident happened on Sunday evening as two men, aged 28 and 34, were walking along the canal path that runs towards a tunnel known as the Undercroft.

caught in the act, a video you will not enjoy.

In another post, a guy is arrested and charged and goes to trial which fortunately turned in his favor. He was defending his property and himself.
A jury in effect told the prosecutor persecutor up yours, and it only took 20 minutes.  Of course, the defendant in that case had to wait months and months to find out if he had a life and future.

But justice is a funny thing.  Or perhaps how some judges, judge it. 
Here’s a case you can watch and see for yourselves, no question about what happened.
But judgy-pudgy buys the bogus BS and the bastard perp (immigrant more than likely judging by his unpronounceable name; Vitalijis Zavjalovs, and how is that for a handle?) perp is “remorseful” we are told.  There are hundreds of thousands of “remorseful” scum roaming free here so hey, must be a nice and peaceful and tranquil place. Yeah, right.

‘You used a weapon - your foot - we believe it deserves a custodial sentence but you have been shown leniency because you have shown remorse and it was an isolated incident and you have previous good character.’

Says softy-wufty judgy.

Karen Schofield, defending, said: ‘His recollection of the incident is somewhat vague. He had consumed an extremely large quantity of alcohol. 

Says perp scum’s lawyer who luckily we may imagine, was never a crime victim. 

‘He does not go out regularly at weekends, he cannot put forward any legitimate reason why he drank this much on this occasion.’

She continues shoveling the BS at the court. Hey, the old expression works here too. Dazzle em with bull shit.

So being on a roll the scum bag's mouthpiece continues.

‘He is a man who is not a violent individual. He regrets what happened and is remorseful that he caused injury to a male that simply he does not know.’

Well, he’s remorseful. Isn’t that nice?
Judgy thinks so because ...

Zavjalovs, from Wigan, pleaded guilty to a charge of assault by beating. He received a four month custodial sentence suspended for 12 months with a specified activity requirement.

He will also have to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work, pay £600 compensation to the victim, a £80 victim surcharge and £85 costs, adding up to a total of £765.

Hit the bastards where it hurts. In the pocketbook. That’ll learn em okay.
Erm ..... unless they’re on benefits of course and we all know who eventually really gets to pay.

nice gun

A pretty sight, if it isn’t pointed at you.

H/T our bmews friend LyndonB, who sent this today.

Your article on that Smith & Wesson in BMEWS reminded me of my spell in the Canadian gun shop. We had a couple of these on the shelf that came from Calgary (‘cause no one could sell them) Though they do have hand guns in Canuckistan they are licensed and can only be used at approved ranges so are not as easy to own as in the US. I think this was a .460

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.
