AUTHORITIES FIND SOFT PENALTIES PRODUCE MORE CRIME. ? YA DON’T SAY. WHO’DA GUESSED?

In a comment on another post Rich K said this is a Bizzaro world. Yeah. It most definitely is that.

For example, all sorts of ppl are holding all sorts of events in aid for Haiti. Kate Moss broke down in tears and couldn’t contain herself as a dress she had that was designed by that fellow who recently topped himself, sold at auction for Haiti aid for, £100,000.  You can work out the dollar amount. $1.54 to the £1.00. For a dress.  It was bought by her business partner.  At least I think he is.  I’m pretty certain he is.  I wonder if he’ll return it to her. ??

Then, there there was this.

David Walliams and James Corden kiss to raise money for Haiti earthquake victims at Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief show.

Two guys mouth to mouth to raise money?  The photo was stomach churning. Disgusting, no kidding. Who gives to a charity just coz two loony tunes do that?

If a cause is worthy, why would it take two guys doing disgusting things to induce someone to donate? And even on a scale that doesn’t involve the bizarre or sickening, why would someone riding a bike or walking or running for some charity, induce anyone to give anything?  I read about silly make up the event to raise money in the local weekly amateur paper.  Bobby Jones age 11 walks two miles for ,,,, (pick a charity).  Alice Smith rides her bike for Haiti aid.
It always seems so artificial. Maybe it’s just me but I think those events are a bit stagey and dumb.

And then we have ...... ta-da BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Young criminals who escape with soft community punishments such as building bird boxes go on to commit more than 100,000 extra crimes each year, figures show.

By Tom Whitehead, Home Affairs Editor

Juvenile offenders handed community-based penalties instead of custody were responsible for more than 650,000 further offences over just six years.

It meant teenage and child criminals who were dealt with lightly for one offence then accounted for one in every 50 of the 33 million crimes recorded by police between 2002 and early 2008.

The “Making Good” programme has already seen young criminals being left to build bird boxes or make badges as part of their “punishment”.

Activities under other schemes have previously included creating costumes for the Notting Hill carnival.

Analysis by the Conservatives on MoJ reoffending figures estimates some 667,073 crimes were committed by children aged ten to 17 who had previously been given a community-based punishment.

BRIT TAXPAYERS TAKE ANOTHER BODY BLOW TO THE PURSE. (Caution Lyndon/Chris. DO NOT LOOK)


Single mother-of-six finds £2m mansion on the net… and then gets YOU to pay £7,000 a month rent

By Emily Andrews and Stephen Wright
Feb. 15

A single mother-of-six is getting more than £80,000 a year from the taxpayer to live in a £2million mansion in an exclusive London suburb.

image

Essma Marjam, 34, is given almost £7,000 a month in housing benefits to pay the rent on the five-bedroom villa just yards from Sir Paul McCartney’s house and Lord’s cricket ground.

She also receives an estimated £15,000 a year in other payouts, such as child benefit, to help look after her children, aged from five months to 14.

The four-storey house in Maida Vale has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double living room, large fitted kitchen-diner with French doors on to the landscaped garden and a state-of-the art buzzer entry system.

Astonishingly, it is understood Miss Marjam found the house on the internet through a private letting agency, rather than waiting for Westminster council to give her a vacant property on their books.

She then applied to the council for the £1,600-a-week benefit - the maximum amount the council allows.

Miss Marjam said: ‘I moved here at the beginning of the month as I’m entitled to a five-bedroom house.

‘I was in a three-bedroom council house but I needed a bigger place once my new baby came along. So the council agreed to pay the £1,600 a week to a private landlord as they didn’t have any houses big enough.

‘I’m separated from my husband. He’s a solicitor in Derby, but I don’t know if he’s working at the moment. He doesn’t pay anything towards the kids. Things are quite difficult between us.

‘The house is lovely and very big, but I don’t have enough furniture to fill it.’

OH DEAR,OH DEAR. NOT ENOUGH FURNITURE?  HUH?  DON’T YOU FOLKS SIT ON FLOORS?  WHATEVER.  NO WORRY DEAR.  THE ENGLISH TAXPAYER WILL FILL YOUR NEW HOME WITH ALL THE FURNITURE YOU NEED.  JUST ASK.  DEMAND.  AND BE SURE TO SAY IT’S YOUR HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHT.  (oh yeah. hint. if anyone questions your request demand, simply tell em they are being racists. that’ll shut em up)

GO HERE FOR THE REST

Taxpayers are also picking up the £6,400-a-month bill to house Nasra Warsame, her seven children and her elderly mother in central London, with Westminster council also providing Mrs Warsame’s husband and their eighth child with a two-bedroom flat nearby.

In total, 16 families are living in million-pound-plus London properties funded by the Local Housing Allowance.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE MAD TO WORK HERE ….  SHORT BUT TELLING COMMENT ON OUR WORLD

This is just a very short item at the bottom of his article.  You might call it an aside and a telling one at that.

batbatbatbatbatbat

Snapshot reveals the increasingly tangled web

Martin Waller: City Diary

I tiptoe uneasily into this one, well aware that it will generate plenty of hate mail.

The US Department of Justice is advertising for as many as ten “experienced attorneys” for its Civil Rights Division, which enforces laws preventing discrimination. The Civil Rights Division encourages “qualified applicants with targeted disabilities” to apply.

Targeted disabilities include deafness, blindness, missing limbs, etc, and “mental retardation, mental illness . . .” Yes, I know, in a civilised society everyone should have a chance. But actively seeking a lawyer who suffers from mental retardation? It gives a whole new meaning to the cliche “you don’t have to be mad to work here, but it helps”. Hate mail to the usual address, please.

HEY THERE BMEWS …. THINK THIS JOKE IS FUNNY?

“A man walked into a Dublin bar and saw a friend sitting with an empty glass.

‘Paddy can I buy you another’, he asked, to which Paddy replied - ‘now what would I be wanting with another empty glass?”

IF YOU THINK IT’S FUNNY AND YOU TELL THAT JOKE TO SOME IRISHMEN HERE ON THIS SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC .....


Councillor ordered to pay compensation for ‘racist’ joke

A Conservative councillor has been ordered to pay compensation to a union rep after telling a “racist” joke about a dim-witted Irishman.

By Nick Britten

Cllr Ken Bamber, who sits on Medway Council in Kent, was chatting with Brian Kelly, a Unison rep, when he made the joke.

He told Mr Kelly: “A man walked into a Dublin bar and saw a friend sitting with an empty glass. ‘Paddy can I buy you another’, he asked, to which Paddy replied - ‘now what would I be wanting with another empty glass?”

Mr Kelly, who was born in Ireland, said Cllr Barber had used the word “Paddy” offensively and was being “racist with intent”.

He lodged an official complaint and took the matter to an employment tribunal, which referred the case to the conciliation service Acas.

Mr Kelly is believed to have been awarded several thousand pounds compensation, some from the council and some from Cllr Bamber.

Cllr Bamber, 79, said that although the judgement had taken “a long, long time” it had not affected his job.

The councillor, who chairs the business support overview and scrutiny committee and sits on five other committees, said: “I could make a lot of comments about this case, but I can’t I’m afraid.

“The council have now decided to draw a line under the matter and it is finally over and I can get on with my job.”

Speaking previously about the case, Mr Kelly said: “I couldn’t believe my ears - we were in the midst of a racial discrimination hearing.

“If there’s ever a more inappropriate time to start telling racist jokes that would have been it.

“This man was directly responsible for deciding whether the employee in question had a racial discrimination claim and he was telling racist jokes himself.

“I am proud of my Irish heritage and family and I felt deeply offended.”

A spokesman for the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “This case has taken too long to settle and looks like it will cost a lot of money.

“It distracts staff from doing what they should be doing - providing essential services for people.

“These sorts of matters need to be resolved as quickly as possible and any cost should be borne by the offending party, not the taxpayer.”

SOURCE

I really think the guy who claims he was “offended” is a lying sack of shit!
Could not the joke be interpreted as the Irishman at the bar being clever enough and funny enough to reply he didn’t need another empty glass?
And even if not.  So what?  How bad and is that joke from a standpoint of racial insult?  What if Paddy just happened to be his real name?
Yeah I know, I know.  This crap is way outta hand.
The court should have thrown it out.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

We’ve covered this outspoken critic of islam before but at the moment, things not going that well for our side.  Seems the very PC Dutch ar quite happy to gag one of their own ELECTED politicians and give their country away to the islamists.  If that’s really the case, what the heck did they fight the Germans for?
Nothing I have read on the subject and I confess I haven’t read everything, indicates that the Dutch are very happy with events there. Unfortunately for them, their country is in the hands of the left.  They are concerned about immigration and they are worried about militant islam. In fact, many are just plain bothered about islam period, militant or not.  Some have “quietly” said it has no place in their culture. I think the Dutch who said that have already moved out.

So anyway ... Geert Wilders is on trial.  More like the Inquisition minus the burning then a trial. But you guys MUST read this to get a feel for how scary this actually is.  Especially from muslim authorities. 

H/T TUNDRA TABLOID
The Amsterdam District Court apparently doesn’t want to hear the truth about Islam. Nor is it interested to hear the opinion of top class legal experts in the field of freedom of expression. In one swift move, the Court brushed aside fifteen of the eighteen expert-witnesses the defence had requested to be summoned.

Only Hans Jansen, Simon Admiraal and Wafa Sultan were allowed to be heard as expert-witnesses. Their testimony will be heard in a session behind closed doors. Apparently the truth about Islam must remain a secret.

Geert Wilders: “This Court is not interested in the truth. This Court doesn’t want me to have a fair trial. I can’t have any respect for this. This Court would not be out of place in a dictatorship”.
The Court also brushed aside the preliminary objections concerning its jurisdiction and the admissibility of the Public Prosecutor.

Nevertheless, Geert Wilders remains extremely motivated to seek justice: “I’m still counting on an acquittal”.

TUNDRA TABLOID

imageimage

THERE IS THIS FROM THE GATES OF VIENNA BLOG AND I ENCOURAGE ALL WHO HAVEN’T READ IT TO GO OVER THERE AND DO SO.
It isn’t a short read.

It’s obvious that the Dutch government wants Geert Wilders out of the way, and doesn’t much care how it happens.

In bygone days the Queen might have murmured to herself, “Who will rid me of this troublesome blond?” And then, to please his monarch, some eager courtier would have dispatched Mr. Wilders to meet his maker.

But today’s tactics have to be different. First the government demonizes the head of the PVV, eroding his official legitimacy and making it seem as if he almost deserves a violent end. Then it puts him on trial on trumped-up charges, and declines to provide the same courtroom security for a member of parliament that it gives to Islamic terrorists.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

International Free Press Society 4 February 2010
By Diana West

INTL. FREE PRESS

Even if you have never been involved in a criminal prosecution wherein your very freedom is at risk, I want you to now imagine that you and your attorney have prepared a defense that includes a list of witnesses that will provide a mountain of exculpatory evidence.  Then, imagine that the Court summarily and arbitrarily decides that it will not listen to nearly ninety percent of your case.

“This court is apparently not interested in the truth.” Wilders told De Telegraaph (translations from Gates of Vienna). “I cannot conclude anything but that the court does not award me a fair trial.”

“I have no respect for this,” Wilders added. He pointed out that in a typical criminal case there are often dozens of witnesses heard.

But this is not a typical trial. This is a rigged game, a fixed fight, a show trial that is premised not on Dutch law but on Islamic law. Indeed, the trial of Geert Wilders is a test case for sharia in the Netherlands, the grafting onto a free Western country the repressive cage of Islamic rule.

Discussing Muslim progress against “Islamophobia” at the 35th meeting of foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in Kampala, Uganda in 2008, Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu made the following statement:

In confronting the Danish cartoons and the Dutch film “Fitna”, we sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed. As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

One reading doesn’t convey the chilling import of these words.

As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues.

Yes, and to the craven point where “the official West and its public opinion” are paralyzed and silenced by these same “sensitivities.”

They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

When the OIC speaks about “freedom of expression,” it means freedom of expression as governed by the laws of Islam — sharia. When the OIC says we in the West have “started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility,” it means we in the West have started to regard expression from the perspective of sharia — from the perspective of the totalitarian Islamic system.

So here’s some unwashed creep with a name nobody outside his own country can pronounce ( Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu), and he’s telling the west how things are gonna be.  And so far, a lot in the west seems to be caving in.

give us your tired and really poor and even aids infected coz conservatives care about votes

Sure they do. Just like all politicians. 

Hey, since I don’t vote here my opinion is worth less then nothing.  I’ll give it anyway.

I think the head of the cons. party here (Tories) is dreadfully wrong if he wants to force faith schools to teach that homosexuality is OKAY.
I don’t want to get into an argument on the subject of sex or odd ppl but come on.  There are folks who are not necessarily haters of anyone but believe that homosexuality is a moral and religious issue.  Their ministers are not preaching jihad against those people but don’t believe it’s a normal lifestyle and certainly do not want to teach children that it’s simply another of life’s choices.  So when the head of the Conservative party here says he would ” force faith schools to teach pupils there was nothing wrong with being gay,” I’d say he was skating on pretty thin ice.  I might be dead wrong on that but it’s how I see it.

I’m not trained in the field and so shouldn’t spout opinions on things I’ve no experience with.  Like parenthood. But it just seems to me that if I were a parent and had a child in a faith based school, or any school for that matter, I would be darned uncomfortable having strangers “teach” my kid that homosexuality was an okay and normal thing.  I’m not convinced at the same time however, that telling a kid it’s normal will turn him or her into that state of being.  I mean, wouldn’t they have to be oriented that way to begin with?  Sensitive damn subject and glad I’m not and never was a parent.  That is a MAJOR responsibility I was happy to pass on.  But I sure do sympathize with people who are parents in todays world.  I think their job is far harder then it ever was before. And much harder to supervise their offspring too.  Kudos to those who manage it well.

Cameron: Gay refugees from Africa should be given asylum in UK

By Daniel Martin

Gay refugees from Africa should be granted asylum in the UK, David Cameron has said.

The Tory leader suggested that homosexuals should be allowed to stay in Britain if their lives would be put in danger were they sent home.

Under immigration rules, gay men are often sent back to countries with homophobic regimes - and advised to keep their sexuality a secret in case local police attack them.

But in an interview with gay magazine Attitude, Mr Cameron said the rules should be changed to protect homosexuals fleeing persecution.

He also promised to do more to stop rappers whose songs contain homophobic lyrics from performing in Britain, and said he would force faith schools to teach pupils there was nothing wrong with being gay.

However, he insisted there was no need for further legislation to protect homosexuals. It follows Harriet Harman’s attempts to push through her Equality Bill, which would put a duty on companies to promote the employment of gays.

Mr Cameron’s comments are the latest example of his conversion over gay rights.

Once a supporter of Margaret Thatcher’s Section 28 law, which banned the ‘promotion’ of homosexuality in schools, he changed his position after becoming Conservative leader in 2005.

Mr Cameron also called for an end to the ban on gays giving blood, saying: ‘Logic would dictate that it’s time to change.’

He promised to put in place ‘ground rules’ to make sure religious schools ‘teach equality’. But he came out against further equalities legislation, saying: ‘I think it’s much more about culture than about law now.’

Taxi drivers accused of racism over St George stickers. Can’t do anything without offending some.

image image image image

It isn’t a long article but it naturally caught my eye.  So now under some circumstances, the English flag can be seen as offensive and oh my. Even, dare I say it here?  racist.  (whispered) Jerks.

Taxi drivers who put up St George stickers in their cabs saying they speak English have been accused of racism and warned they face suspension.

A group of drivers of licensed cabs in Southampton put up the signs because they claimed passengers complained to them that some drivers cannot speak English.

The matter came to a head in a meeting with drivers and the city council last week when some drivers told the council of the alleged problem.

Now the city council has said any cab that has the sign or a St George flag put up will have their licence suspended if they do not take them down within seven days.

MAN IN CAR BLOWS HIS NOSE.  MAN IN CAR GETS AN ON THE SPOT TRAFFIC TICKET. ONLY IN THE UK.

batbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbat

There are not enough bats at BMEWS to place with this article.  Maybe we should dump the moonbat here and replace it with an image of the officer involved.

It’s this kind of insanity that goes unchecked that drives folks nuts.
Just why is officer Moonbat still on the job?  How’d he ever qualify?  Who gets his kick back on payday?  How does he get away with this sort of stupid bahavior?  How come someone hasn’t pulled the plug on him by now?

Be sure and click the link below coz there is more. You might not think there is. But it’s so. You will not believe the very last line in this article at the link. I can’t believe it.  Be very interested to read your reactions to just that one line. You’ll see what I mean when you get there.  If it weren’t part of a news story on line, I’d say Drew with his sense of humor made it up. Or else the Daily Mail is holding something back.

Driver fined for blowing his nose… by same PC who ticketed man for dropping £10

By Paul Sims

When motorist Michael Mancini found himself stuck in a queue of traffic with a runny nose, he instinctively reached for his hankie.

However, the simple act of pulling out a tissue and blowing his nose earned him a £60 on-the-spot fine because he was ‘not in proper control of his vehicle’.

Policeman Stuart Gray, nicknamed PC Shiny Buttons for his zealous approach to the job, also handed out three points - even though Mr Mancini had his handbrake on.

Now Mr Mancini, a 39-year-old father-of-two, faces a potentially expensive legal battle to clear his name after vowing not to pay the fine.

He is the latest victim of PC Gray, who is no stranger to controversy.

A few months ago, the officer issued a £50 fixed penalty for littering to unemployed Stewart Smith, who accidentally dropped a £10 note in the street as he left a shop.

Last night Mr Mancini spoke of his disbelief at his experience.

Just another thing to get pointlessly pissed off about.

I guess this just another thing for me to be pointlessly pissed off about. I can’t understand how people can become this incredibly stupid, but they have.

Unless this show has been seen in the USA on PBS or cable, most Americans won’t know what this is all about. So here’s a link should you be interested.  http://www.dadsarmy.co.uk/

It was a hugely popular and I am told, a very funny show that ran for a long time. It wasn’t my cup of tea and I didn’t get anything from it but then I’m not a Brit.

Anyway, so popular is this show still, after years off the air, there are web sites dedicated to it. (see above) There was even a board game which eBay UK in it’s unfathomable ignorance and dedication to political correctness has seen fit to ban due to Swastikas on the box. No, it isn’t some right wing racist game dreamed up by the BNP or the KKK or some nut case looking to offend ppl.  Read the article.  Jeesh ….

eBAY, YOU ARE BEYOND BEING MERELY STUPID IDIOTS.  YOU HAVE BECOME WORLD CLASS STUPID “FUCKIN” IDIOTS!  You haven’t the brains god gave a rock. You truly are as the man says, MORONIC! 

eBay bans sale of Dad’s Army board game for promoting ‘hatred and racial intolerance’

When Dave Davidson was clearing out some old junk, he thought nothing of selling a 99p Dad’s Army board game online.

Nick Britten

But he was amazed when the auction site eBay refused to let him sell it because it might incite racial hatred and promote violence.
The offending part was a Swastika on the box, modelled on the opening titles of the sitcom which showed Swastikas and Union flags strategically moving around a map of Europe.

imageimage

And despite its apparent family-friendly content, where players attempt to get their platoon to one location on the board, eBay stuck by their decision to ban the auction declaring: “We don’t allow the sale of memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

(Yeah right but I’ll bet ya eBay sells old uncle joe photos and the Hammer and Sickle don’t ya. There’s also a Hammer & Sickle Vodka I am told. Amazing isn’t it, that this ass-wipe, this condom stuffer, can not see that the board game is NOT memorabilia and is NOT associated with any political group. And yet, and yet.  Ppl like this get decision making jobs with large companies and get to decide for everybody else, what is correct and proper to buy and or sell.  )

Mr Davidson said: “I couldn’t believe it when they sent me an email telling me my Dad’s Army board game could insight violence and hatred.

“Its so annoying because any human being with an ounce of common sense can see Dad’s Army is the most harmless TV programme in the world.
“There’s no swearing, sex or violence – it’s not like I’m trying to flog a piece of Nazi memorabilia here.
“I was just baffled.”

He said Ebay was “run by a system, by robots, with no brain who probably just vet the content without looking into anything properly”, adding: ”It’s moronic.

“They allow coins and stamps with swastikas and there are hundreds of novels which are war stories that have them.”
Mr Davidson, from Droitwich, Worcs, discovered his item had been removed from the site last Saturday when he received an e-mail from eBay.

It said his listing breached the company’s offensive material policy and added: “We don’t allow sellers on eBay to list items that promote violence, hatred, racial or religious intolerance, or items from organisations that promote these views.
“We don’t allow items or memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

The ‘Dad’s Army Board Game’ was released in the mid-1970’s when the TV series was at the height of its popularity.
Jenny Thomas, spokesman for eBay UK, said: “eBay will remove listings that bear the marks of organisations that promote hatred and racial intolerance and we are strict and unapologetic in adhering to this policy.”

Peter Oteng, chief executive of the Worcestershire Racial Equality Council, said that there are strict laws about advertising discriminatory material and eBay, as the advertiser, was protecting itself.

He said: “You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”
He added a compromise could have been to advertise the board game without showing the swastika image.

TELEGRAPH

“You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”

No you bleeding idiot. It is a laughing matter.  It’s a board game based on a TV show you jerk.  No again you ignorant schmuck. It isn’t serious. It’s a board game based on a comedy TV show. Dad’s Army is a British sitcom about the Home Guard in the Second World War. ‘Dad’s Army’ ran for nine years from 1968 until 1977. It spawned a full length feature film, a radio series and a musical stage show.

I think eBay should reconsider their position on this particular subject and sack the ppl involved. Not because of what they did. No. Because they are just too stupid to work for a major company and make decisions affecting other people. They do not have what it takes.

Britain is the one sinking ship where all the rats have stayed!  -

This is not the first time I have posted that remark by a Brit now living in France and happy to be there.
This will not be the last time I use his (or her?) quote either, as long as there are judgments made like this one.  At the very least, the very least, this animal should have had his eyes removed minus any pain killer. And oh yeah, he should have been fixed so that his victim would be the very last female he would ever enjoy again. Ever!  Read this and if you are one who really thinks three years is any sort of punishment, then you’re no better then his fuckin lawyer. Who btw, I hope the very same happens to.  We’ll then see how quick she is to take on a like case and defend vermin like this.  Vermin like this have NO need of lawyers. 

Boy, 13, who raped woman in front of his friends is jailed for just three years… because he said ‘sorry’

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
26th January 2010

A boy of 13 who overpowered a woman then raped her in front of his two friends will spend just three years locked away for his crimes.

Balal Khan - thought to be one of the youngest convicted rapists in Britain - targeted the 20-year-old as she walked home.

He subjected her to a severe beating then screamed at her ‘Do what I say or I’ll kill you’, before putting her through the ordeal of a terrifying sex attack.

Then he stole her bag and phone and even took a call from his victim’s boyfriend to whom he bragged about what he had done.

But after pleading guilty to charges of rape and robbery the teenager was sentenced to just three years because of his age - and because he said ‘sorry’.

A judge at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court lifted a restriction preventing the publication of Khan’s identity after hearing details of the horrifying attack.

The judge heard how Khan ran up behind his victim and grabbed her around the neck as she walked through a secluded area near Cobridge, in Stoke-on-Trent one evening in September last year.

He punched and kicked her as she lay on the ground before raping her.

Robert Price, prosecuting, said: ‘She started screaming and attempted to get to her feet.

‘He responded by punching her in the mouth and knocked her back on the ground.

‘He stood over her and kicked her to the side of her face. He started shouting at her and warned that if she struggled he would “kill” her.’

Holland … a place where your observations about a particular religion lands you in court.

Personally, I think Wilders is a hero.  His mistake, if you want to call it that, was to be openly critical of the ROP.
This is the man who for a time was denied entry to Britain because of his outspoken views.  Everyone and including the Dutch apparently, tip toe around muzzies and their religion like they’re walking on eggshells.  I guess they are. But there is a solution to this insidious problem. 

This is a VERY long article found at European News, and so I’ve cut it and the whole thing is at the link below.

The Wilders trial: Torquemada would be proud

International Free Press Society
By Arthur Legger

Any one who still claims that the trial against Geert Wilders MP, leader of the Party for Freedom (9 seats in Parliament and 27 in the polls), which starts on the 20th of January, is not a political process: get a grip.

Accused by the Dutch ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ exactly a year ago for insulting Islam, comparing the Koran to Mein Kampf and delivering hate speeches, the coming trial against Wilders suddenly got a Kafkaesque and potentially murderous twist. Finally, seven days before his first day in Court, all fangs were out and faces off.


“It is irrelevant whether Wilder’s witnesses might prove Wilders’ observations to be correct”, the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ stated, “what’s relevant is that his observations are illegal”.

(So it’s come to that has it?  The freedom loving Dutch govt. can now prosecute (and persecute) a person for their “observations.")

Unexpected and breaching court procedures the detailed indictment of 21 pages, which Wilders received on the 4th of December and sums up in verbatim all of his Islam and Koran critique in interviews and Fitna, was amended with new accusations of racism against muslims and Moroccans. On top of this, Paul Vellerman, the public prosecutor of the Amsterdam Court decided that the Wilders trial had to be regarded as “an ordinary trial open for public and with a normal procedure, which doesn’t deserve the Department of Justice’s highly secured bunker. His is a normal case and we’ll treat it as such”.

It’s sad to note that Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh, and Volkert van der Gaag, the assassin of Pim Fortuyn, were tried in this specially designed bunker, but that Wilders has to rely on his personal bodyguards and full metal jacket to ward of terrorists. No safe room for him, which recently secured Kurt Westergaard and his granddaughter, but for months on end the vulnerability of a sitting duck.

The demonized Fortuyn

To a connoisseur of the classic art of Dutch political murder, revived in 2002 with the assassination of the deliberatedly unprotected and demonized Pim Fortuyn, this twist of fate comes, however, as no surprise. The ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ had to do something. Presented with much aplomb in January, already on the 10th of March it turned out that the case against Wilders had one crucial weak spot: it might not hold in Court.

For in a comparable case the Dutch High Court acquitted a Dutchman of his earlier conviction of ‘Group-insult’ of Muslims. He had been sentenced to jail for hanging a poster in front of his window that stated: “Stop the cancerous growth named Islam”. The High Court ruled that “if one insults a religion, one doesn’t automatically insult its believers”.

Gerard Spong, one of the lawyers who lodged complaints against Wilders, was quick to stress, however, that the case against an MP was far more complex than a poster: “Wilders is certainly not off the hook”. But to most professors in Law the High Court ruling proved that Wilders would win with his hands down. Ybo Buruma, a highly influential professor in Criminal Law at Nijmegen University concluded on the 11th of January 2010 that “the prosecution of Geert Wilders is a very nice exercise, but is utterly pointless for it will not lead to a conviction”.

Traditionally with such a High Court ruling and severe scholarly critique the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ wouldn’t fail to reconsider and dismiss charges. But already a year ago the Wall Street Journal had immediately grasped that “Muslim-immigration [was] eroding traditional Dutch liberties”, forcing Dutch Law into a radically new course of censorship. Observing that Wilders’ critique of Islam outraged muslims around the globe, the Journal chided: “If freedom of speech means anything, it means the freedom of controversial speech. Consensus views need no protection”.

The Wall Street Journal must have been either clairvoyant or hysterically well informed: Paul Vellerman, Amsterdam’s Court public prosecutor, and Birgit van Roessel, the Court’s second public prosecutor, who’re both heading the trial against Wilders, also both are working for the National Expertise Centre Discrimination. This Centre is the leading organization of the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ to track down “crimes of expression and speech”. The Centre was responsible for lodging complaints against cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot.

Get the gun for friend who kills girl while you watch then get outta jail free. Almost. Close to it.

Right you are. This story is all about what’s carried out in the name of justice.  Authorities need to replace that word with something else.
Meanwhile and for the foreseeable future, this seems to be England’s answer to crime, even when a death is involved.

Rehab?  Sure thing. No problem.  Soon as the gremlin finds a way to bring back the dead victim we can talk all about rehab. What total BS this is. The powers that be should be ashamed but that’s part of the problem. Isn’t it?  Nobody has a sense of shame anymore.  Not even guilt. And just where is the punishment and the deterrent in this article?  I don’t see it but if you do let us know.  Maybe I missed something.

Killer freed to chat up girls in clubs during four-week ‘break from prison’

By Ryan Kisiel

He is having a great night out and has found himself a pretty girlfriend to snuggle up to - and all while serving time for manslaughter.

It has emerged that Briggs, 23, has been allowed out of prison for up to four weeks at a time under a controversial government release scheme.

He is just three-and-a-half years into his nine-year sentence for helping to arrange the death of a teenage girl.

The revelation of his easy lifestyle has shocked and horrified the grieving family of victim Carolyn Lemm.

Last night her father Timothy, said: ‘It makes me feel sick that he has been allowed out to enjoy himself so soon into his sentence.

‘I’ve seen pictures of him on the internet smiling and having a good time and it’s heartbreaking. We will never forgive him for what he’s done and for helping to take Carolyn away from us.’

Briggs has even been able to start a relationship with Chrissy Foster, the young student in this photo.  She is said to believe that he was given an ‘unfair’ trial.

Yesterday critics called for a clampdown on the ‘overnight stay’ scheme, which they say is a desperate attempt to tackle prison overcrowding.

Briggs was jailed in July 2006 after being convicted of manslaughter for his role in planning the killing of 16-year-old Carolyn with his friend Lee Smith.

The previous December he helped Smith - who had recently been jilted by the teenager - to get a shotgun and saw off the barrel.

He then drove with Smith and Carolyn and another girl to woodland near Sheffield.

Smith, 20, shot Carolyn in the head before killing himself. The other girl was able to run off. When police arrived at the scene the next morning, they found Briggs asleep in the car.

Mr Lemm said last night: ‘He did everything to contribute to Carolyn’s death bar pull the trigger.’ Last summer, when Briggs was moved to an open prison, he became one of thousands of offenders deemed suitable for the resettlement overnight release (ROR) scheme.

It is usually available to Category D inmates - those in open prisons - in the last two years of their sentence. In many cases this includes murderers and violent attackers. Those like Briggs who are doing a community service placement can stay at home for up to four weeks at a time.

During the six months he has been at Kirklevington Grange open prison in Yarm, Cleveland, Briggs has twice spent four-week stints at his mother’s three-bedroom home in Sheffield.

There, his freedom was virtually unrestricted aside from a weekday community placement. He has also been allowed to visit towns near his prison, and it was on one of those trips that he approached Miss Foster, 21, at Yarm railway station.

The pair have since enjoyed nights out in Sheffield and Middlesbrough, where she studies health and nutrition at Teesside University.

The revelation has horrified her parents, who did not know about Briggs.

Her father, Chris Foster, who runs his own IT firm, yesterday described his daughter as ‘vulnerable’ and ‘gullible’, but said he was ‘ashamed’ she was seeing the young man.

‘Everyone has the chance to rehabilitate, but not so soon after helping to kill someone,’ he added.

A friend of Miss Foster said: ‘She’s been brainwashed into believing he’s innocent and it was a miscarriage of justice, which just isn’t true.’

The couple describe themselves as ‘in a relationship’ on social networking website Facebook.

Unfortunately for them, that relationship led to Briggs’s freedom being abruptly curtailed last year. On December 16 he was sent to the secure Durham Prison for skipping a counselling session to spend time with Miss Foster.

But she has vowed to wait for him until he is due to be released at the end of this year.

Last night Philip Davies, Conservative MP for Shipley in West Yorkshire, condemned the decision to let Briggs enjoy life outside prison.

‘It’s no wonder people have lost faith in the criminal justice system when convicted killers who have been sent to prison are simply let out again like this,’ he said.

A spokesman for the Prison Service said ‘rehabilitating’ inmates in this way had cut adult reoffending by a fifth over the last seven years.

cut adult reoffending by a fifth:  Yeah. Either that or they just aren’t being caught again.

Save this for when you get really po’d re. American immigration/border policies, and then

BE DAMN THANKFUL YOU DON’T HAVE THIS.  Or do we?

Another gem from Richard Littlejohn.  There’s two actually and I’ll post the other one separately. For now however, put you eyes on this.  It’s been going on a long time now, and I can not understand how or why people who hold offices and who are generally well educated, can at the very same time be so damn stupid.  They really are killing this country with kindness.  Or maybe it isn’t intended kindness at all.
Bottom line.  As he is so often, Littlejohn is correct.

The lunatics now have full control of the asylum.  Not funny.

When it comes to asylum, the lunatics really have taken over

By Richard Littlejohn

This morning’s edition of You Couldn’t Make It Up stars 31-year-old Moroccan Rashid Ali, who came to this country six years ago in search of a better life.
image

He tore up his passport and pretended to be Algerian, in the belief that he stood more chance of being granted asylum.

A short while after arriving, he decided that Britain wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. So, naturally, he decided to leave.

With the myriad problems we have deporting failed asylum seekers and terrorists, you might have thought the authorities would be happy to see the back of him.

After all, the Government has resorted to bribing illegal immigrants to go home, even chartering special flights to repatriate them.

So they should have been offering to drive Rashid to the airport and bidding him a fond farewell. Missing you already.

But the Moroccans are in no rush to get him back and have failed to issue him with a new passport. And because he has no papers, British officials refused to let him leave. When he tried to escape, he was arrested and put in detention.

So far, he has stowed away on six cargo ships, but each time he has been brought back. He has even been offered his own flat to persuade him to stay put, but refused.

Rashid is currently being held in a ‘removals’ centre near Heathrow, even though he won’t be going anywhere fast.

This Kafkaesque farce has been running since 2004, during which time Rashid has been jailed for nine months for stealing a coat and made the subject of a deportation order.

More than a year ago a judge promised to ‘kick some backsides’ at the Home Office, saying the refusal to repatriate him beggared belief.

It costs £43,000 a year to keep him in detention. The bill to the British taxpayer, including legal fees, adds up to more than £300,000.

We have known for a decade that Britain’s asylum and immigration system is absurd. But this case is beyond bonkers.

If Rashid Ali wants to leave, let him. If Morocco doesn’t want him, he can try his luck somewhere else.

Where he goes next is not our problem. He is not a British citizen and we have no obligation towards him.

Rashid is being held in a secure unit because of fears he may abscond. But he wants to abscond, for heaven’s sake.

Officials also say they are concerned that he may hurt himself if he tries to stow away on another ship. I suppose it was inevitable that elf’n’safety would have a walk-on part in this fiasco.

Ever since the pernicious ‘yuman rites’ act was passed into law, the British authorities seem to believe they have a moral and legal obligation to feed and water the world’s waifs and strays, however undesirable.

And they will go to any lengths to carry out their ‘duty’.

It has also been revealed that the Foreign Office is supporting an attempt to remove seven foreign terror suspects, currently living in Britain, from a UN watch list.

All of them are said to have links with al-Qaeda and the Taliban. They include people who have been convicted of involvement in bombings in Casablanca, accused of blowing up two U.S. embassies and found guilty by a military tribunal of plotting terrorist attacks.

Currently, the men are forbidden to leave the country. Why the hell were they ever allowed to enter Britain in the first place? They should have been kicked out years ago.

Even when we try to deport terror suspects, our hands are tied by ‘yuman rites’. In another ludicrous development yesterday, the High Court ruled that two suspected terrorists, one Libyan and one Iraqi, who have been subject to control orders in Britain since 2006 - because it is illegal to detain them in prison - are entitled to sue for compensation.

They were given control orders only because sending them back to Libya or Iraq would break their fundamental rights.

That’s not all. Europe’s top law officer has announced that the wives and families of men linked to al- Qaeda should receive tens of thousands of pounds in benefits from the British taxpayer.

Refusing to pay them is - you guessed - a breach of their ‘yuman rites’. No wonder Britain harbours more terrorists than any other Western country.

The insanity of our system for dealing with foreign terrorists and illegal immigrants is beyond parody.

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave, even if you want to.

WHEN IT SOMES TO ASYLUM, THE LUNATICS HAVE REALLY TAKEN OVER.

LITTLEJOHN

Senior member of extreme Islamist group is teaching at a London school

I really do wonder when and where this kind of thing will end. The only thing I am certain of is, it will not be in my lifetime.
So then, I wish the future generations much Good Luck. You are going to need all of that you can get.

And what a GAK producing couple (photo) barf.

Take a look BMEWS.

The Times

A senior figure in Hizb ut-Tahrir, a hardline Islamist group that the Government keeps “under continuous review” and the Conservatives want to ban, is teaching and preaching at a top university.

The Times has learnt that Reza Pankhurst, who was imprisoned in Egypt for membership of the group, is a teacher at the London School of Economics and regularly preaches to students at Friday prayers.

The group is supposedly barred from organising and speaking on campuses under the National Union of Students’ policy of “no platform” for racist or fascist views. The presence of one of its prominent members as a university teacher raises new concerns about Islamist radicalisation on campus.

A new review of campus extremism began last month after it was discovered that the alleged Detroit airline bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was a former president of the Islamic Society at University College London.

The Times understands that at least two London university lecturers are either supporters or members of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Mr Pankhurst is a postgraduate student in the LSE’s government department and teaches classes for the course “States, Nations and Empires”.

On Fridays he is one of the regular speakers at prayers organised by the students’ union Islamic Society in the college gym.

A society member told The Times: “He preaches every other week and is constantly bringing the subject around to politics, talking about Afghanistan and the need to establish the Caliphate [Islamic state].

“Only last week he was talking about the Detroit bomber and saying the guy was not radicalised in London and it was all to do with foreign policy.

“Last year he recommended we should attend a conference which I later discovered was organised by Hizb ut-Tahrir, but he never mentions the party by name.”

In 2002 Mr Pankhurst was one of three British Hizb ut-Tahrir members arrested in Egypt for attempting to promote the movement. They were held for four years and tortured before being released in 2006.

He remained active in the movement after his return and, according to well-informed sources, is still a senior figure. Last month a meeting at Queen Mary College, London, at which Mr Pankhurst and Jamal Harwood, another member of Hizb ut-Tahrir, were due to speak, was cancelled after student protests about the speakers’ views.

The Times made repeated attempts to contact the group and Mr Pankhurst yesterday but without success.

The group states on its website that its “political aim is the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate as an independent state”. It says that it rejects forcing change “by means of violence and terror”.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in Germany for anti-semitic activity but, despite Tony Blair announcing plans to proscribe it in 2005, it remains legal in Britain.

In a speech last month Chris Grayling, the Shadow Home Secretary, said that the Conservative Party would ban the group if elected to Government. Mr Grayling said: “Within the UK it takes extreme care about how it words its propaganda ... But anyone who doubts its true character should take a look at the website for its sister organisation in Bangladesh, which talks about evil American plans to subjugate Muslims and about mobilising armed forces to eliminate the Jewish entity. We cannot allow such views free rein in our society.”

The LSE confirmed that Mr Pankhurst was a research student and a graduate teaching assistant.

A spokesman said: “No concerns about his conduct have been raised with the school and we are not aware that he is a member of any proscribed organisation or has broken any laws or LSE regulations.”

The students’ union said that Mr Pankhurst was a member of its Islamic Society. Aled Dilwyn Fisher, general secretary of the union, said: “As far as we are aware, Mr Pankhurst is not currently a member of an illegal extremist group.”

A spokesman for the anti-extremism think-tank, the Quilliam Foundation, said: “Hizb ut-Tahrir, an organisation which has a long track record of promoting intolerance, has not abandoned its efforts to infiltrate British universities in order to spread its destructive, confrontational message.

“Its infiltration of internationally renowned universities such as the LSE make a mockery of universities’ claims to be tackling extremism on campus.”

A Home Office spokesman said “Hizb ut-Tahrir is kept under continuous review. As and when new material comes to light it is considered and the organisation reassessed as part of that process.”
