after 50 years, the truth. but too late to mean anything if it ever did and not to libs

He’s an old man these days and not in the greatest health.  This bit of news no longer matters to anyone, I wouldn’t suppose.  Thing is, he’s praised to the skies by guilty white libs at every opportunity.  They sing his praises and act as if every word he has ever uttered is holy writ. 

I had forgotten about Nelson Mandela for some time.  No reason to even think about him. But I do recall the fuss made over him and how the white world lionised him. Well, at least one part of the white world did.

What brought Mandela back to mind a few years ago, was suddenly seeing him making a speech in which, he excoriated America and President Bush, referring to him as a “war criminal”.  This from a man associated with people who made bombs and attacked civilians.  More of that below.

I recall also the accusations that he was a Communist, something he denied at the time, and the liberals were accusing those who accused him of simply being, the word begins with an ‘R.’ Sure thing. The old standby.  Now it happens that in part it could be true enough, that many took against him simply based on race.  It happens.

An article appeared in the Telegraph with a photo, which is curiously not posted to the on line version of this story on Nelson Mandela.  The photo showed a very young Mandela with clenched fist and the hammer and sickle flag behind him.

The Prof. Ellis mentioned in the article, is a former Amnesty International researcher who is based at the Free University of Amsterdam

According to his research, Mandela did hold senior rank in the South African Communist Party.

Here’s the headline and some of the story.

Nelson Mandela ‘proven’ to be a member of the Communist Party after decades of denial

By Colin Freeman, and Jane Flanagan in Cape Town

Mr Mandela made his denial of Communist Party membership in the opening statement of his Rivonia trial, when he and nine other ANC leaders were tried for 221 alleged acts of sabotage designed to overthrow the apartheid system. The defendants were also accused of furthering the aims of Communism, a movement that was then illegal in South Africa.

Addressing the court, Mr Mandela declared that he had “never been a member of the Communist Party,” and that he disagreed with the movement’s contempt for Western-style parliamentary democracy.
He added: “The suggestion made by the State that the struggle in South Africa is under the influence of foreigners or communists is wholly incorrect. I have done whatever I did, both as an individual and as a leader of my people, because of my experience in South Africa and my own proudly felt African background, and not because of what any outsider might have said.”

Mr Mandela looked for help from the Communists, with whom he already had close contacts due to their shared opposition to apartheid.
“He knew and trusted many Communist activists anyway, so it appears he was co-opted straight to the central committee with no probation required,” said Prof Ellis. “But it’s fair to say he wasn’t a real convert, it was just an opportunist thing.”

Communist party members secretly visited Beijing and Moscow, where they got assurances of support for their own guerrilla campaign. In conjunction with a number of leading ANC members, they set up a new, nominally independent military organisation, known as Umkhonto we Sizwe or Spear of the Nation. With Mr Mandela as its commander, Umkhonto we Sizwe launched its first attacks on 16 December 1961.

Its campaign of “sabotage” and bombings over the subsequent three decades claimed the lives of dozens of civilians, and led to the organisation being classed as a terrorist group by the US.

In his book, Professor Ellis, who also authored a publication on the Liberian civil war, elaborates on other murky aspects of the ANC’s past.

One is that bomb-making experts from the IRA trained the ANC at a secret base in Angola in the late 1970s, a link disclosed last year in the posthumous memoirs of Kader Asmal, a South African politician of Indian extraction who was exiled in Ireland. He was a member of the Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement, which, Prof Mr Ellis says, in turn had close links to the British and South African Communist parties.

The IRA tutoring, which was allegedly brokered partly through Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, led to the ANC fighters improving their bombing skills considerably, thanks to the expertise of what Mr Ellis describes as “the world’s most sophisticated urban guerrilla force”.

Angola was also the base for “Quatro”, a notorious ANC detention centre, where dozens of the movement’s own supporters were tortured and sometimes killed as suspected spies by agents from their internal security service, some of whom were “barely teenagers”. East German trainers taught the internal security agents that anyone who challenged official ANC dogma should be viewed as a potential spy or traitor.

On Friday night, a spokesman for the Nelson Mandela Foundation said: “We do not believe that there is proof that Madiba (Mandela’s clan name) was a Party member ... The evidence that has been identified is comparatively weak in relation to the evidence against, not least Madiba’s consistent denial of the fact over nearly 50 years. It is conceivable that Madiba might indulge in legalistic casuistry, but not that he would make an entirely false statement.

comrades in labour party will tell ppl how and what to eat. and it’s all for the kiddies.

This is another one of those, I must share before going on to other things.

I have no doubt that things loaded with sugars and salts etc. can be overdone. Perhaps not even healthy.  But shouldn’t what you feed your children for breakfast be up to you?  As I think about this, and not being a fan of either product or even a parent, I also wonder if the govt. or in this case a political party (Labour), should be able to TELL people what to consume.  Or tell them what to feed their kids. OK, knee jerk reaction is of course hell no.  Then what about parents who are clueless or maybe don’t believe the warnings and continue to give kids this product?  Are they bad parents?

Any way we view this, I can not think but this is a very bad idea.  What’s next if they get this through?  There are loads of things out there that aren’t good for us. They may be okay but taken to extreme ... not so good.  Forget things like tobacco and drugs.  I am only referring to ..... foods. 

Apparently some talking heads here have discovered that it is not only America that is way overweight (we are???)but there is a serious weight problem here in the UK, which is having a bed affect not only on the health of the public and especially, the kiddies.  Oh no.  It’s also costing the economy and the National Health Service millions, to treat weight related illness.  Something they say, must be done.

And so enter politicians and govt. and legislation and the outlawing or at least the modification of some favorite foods.  I guess parents just are not listening to the folks who know all things. 

Make high levels of fat, sugar and salt in children’s food ILLEGAL, say Labour

By James Chapman

Labour is to propose new legal limits on levels of fat, sugar and salt in children’s food.

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham will say urgent action must be considered to tackle spiralling levels of obesity.

One option to be considered in the party’s public policy health review is to outlaw products with more than a maximum level of fat, sugar and salt which are targeted at children to try to reverse the trend.


A consultation paper identifies a number of breakfast cereals containing more than 30 per cent sugar according to research by Which?, including Kellogg’s Frosties, with 37.0g of sugar per 100g and Tesco Choco Snaps with 36.1g per 100g.

The latest research by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), shows that in the UK, 26.6 per cent of girls and 22.7 per cent of boys are now considered ‘obese’.

Meanwhile, the National Child Measurement Programme last month reported that one-third of children in England are either overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school. Overweight children are at a greater risk of developing diabetes and cancer.

It is clear that the current voluntary approach is not working.

Mr Burnham said: ‘The findings of the OECD should shock us out of our complacency.  We need to open our minds to new approaches in tackling child obesity.

‘Labour wants to lead this debate. That is why we are asking the public and experts if new limits for sugar, fats and salts would be the right approach. Like all parents, I have bought products like cereals and fruit drinks, marketed as more healthy, that contained higher sugar levels than expected. I don’t think that any parent would be comfortable with their child eating something that is 40 per cent sugar.

Mr Burnham has begun consulting with the public and experts on the issue, and is considering proposing a 30 per cent cap on sugar in cereals.

Professor Gabriel Scally, former regional director of public health at the Department of Health, said: ‘The continued rise in childhood obesity is an urgent call to action and must not be ignored.

‘I applaud the Labour Party for tackling the issue of the foodstuffs filling our children with the empty calories that fuel obesity. Helping parents protect and promote the future health of our children is exactly what we need to be doing.’

Paul Wheeler, of Kellogg’s, said: ‘Frosties has been on sale for more than 60 years and by now we think people know there’s sugar in them - we’re not hiding it.

‘The problem with ideas like this is they want an easy, silver bullet solution to what is a very difficult issue. It all boils down to the fact we believe parents, and not the government, should choose what their kids eat.’

A Department of Health spokesman said: ‘By working with industry through the Responsibility Deal we have helped to reduce fat, sugar and salt in foods.

‘There is now less salt in the food we buy, companies are cutting and capping calories and artificial trans fats are being widely taken out of food.’

The spokesman added: ‘We are working to reduce the amount of salt in food further, cut saturated fat consumption and we are exploring how to promote healthier food choices more widely. We also want more businesses making pledges so we get bigger results.’


Sure, cut the salt and the sugar so we can put it back in at home. 

Over time I have noticed the odd food here and there doesn’t taste as good as I remember it.  Hadn’t occurred to me till recently, as I started looking at the labels more, that ingredients are being reduced, along with the weights and measures. Not the price though.

vote putin for prime minister …. no huh? ok. hitler is dead. who’s left? bit of gallows stuff

Here’s an example of just exactly what happens when gremlins get their way, and examples are not made to impress them.  There is no question in my mind at all, that these vermin should be shot dead at the least.  At best, used for medical experiments to further scientific knowledge and look for cures for diseases like leftist thought and liberalism. 

A year ago, some life forms referred to as “activists” which btw almost makes them appear legitimate, a large group of these filthy probably lice ridden vermin took over St. Pauls Cathedral.  Instead of properly spraying the rat bastards with napalm, thus cleansing the area as well as setting a proper example of what the consequences are for that sort of behavior, authorities tried reason and that old Brit standby, “consultations.”

So that brings us to now.
For a brief time, a small group of empty headed anti-capitalist and very ugly slags, chained themselves inside the cathedral during a service.
I wonder if these anti money sluts are collecting any benefits from the state.


Protester Josie Reid, 52, said: ‘I know if Jesus was walking on the earth today he would be with us.

The rest of the St Paul’s quartet were unemployed mother-of-three Tammy Samede, 30; actress Alison Playford, 30; and Siobhan Grimes, 25, who works for the charity Homeless Action.

So Alison at 30 is an actress is she?  Working? Bet she isn’t and bet nobody has ever heard of her. That’s why she has time for this.  This is all she has. Time.

Tammy meanwhile also has time. Hmmm. That last name, Samede.  Doesn’t sound very Brit like to my ear. Unemployed. So I guess with three brats she’s collecting something from this miserable and corrupt capitalist state.

And there’s Siobhan who at age 25 has no profession but does have time and so works for a charity.  Well that’s nice. She’s probably a volunteer and can work for charity because the state is most likely giving her a stipend too.

Finally an old at 52 drudge whose profession is, well, protester I guess. She seems to have an inside track on how Jesus would act and think, and she also has time but not much else.  At 52, she’s getting, “down with the kids” looks like. I wonder if she has any tats. Never mind. Don’t wanna see em if she does.

I am not a religious person but feel very sorry for the congregation in that cathedral, who had their service interrupted by this gang of four repulsive, loud mouthed, inconsiderate skanks.  Just looking at them turns the stomach. Well hells bells folks. Their photo conveys vomit inducing reactions.

This was among other things, their way of showing support for the Russian whores calling themselves Pussy Riot, who rightly ended up in jail for doing the same. And btw, what kind of a handle is pussy riot for a so called music group?  And look how easily accepted they and their name have become.  Doesn’t say much for good taste and decorum I wouldn’t think. 

Take a look.  And check out this link for more.


Occupied… again! Protesters chain themselves St Paul’s Cathedral’s pulpit during rally to mark anti-capitalist movement

· Four women burst into St Paul’s just before 4pm carrying chains and placard
· Hundreds of activists gathered on cathedral’s steps to mark anniversary of Occupy Movement

By Neil Sears

Anti-capitalist protests returned to St Paul’s yesterday, with four women in white invading the cathedral and chaining themselves to the pulpit.

They cut themselves free at about 10pm after more than six hours inside, after police warned that they faced being arrested.
The incident follows a protest camp outside the cathedral which began a year ago today. Both were organised by the Occupy movement.
A message on the group’s Twitter page claimed solidarity with Russia’s Pussy Riot protesters, who were jailed for a demonstration inside a Moscow church in February.
After disrupting the start of the evensong service with chants, they quietened for the rest – and requested communion, which they received while chained to the pulpit.

Now then, I do not think you’ll be able to hear the exchange between the gang of four and the appeasing preacher in the pulpit.
So here is what was said.  Look at how easy and understanding he is in answering these vermin.
And that’s why and how shits like this carry on and continue to carry on with no end in sight.  They can disrupt and cause chaos wherever and whenever they please.  With no serious penalty to make them stop and think. Why should they?  They already know the weak outcome to be expected from the powers that leach.  And the church itself is most accommodating.  What?  Us Worry?  Not bloody likely.

The group, which criticised St Paul’s for accepting money from the bank Goldman Sachs, wielded an umbrella spray-painted with the slogan: ‘Throw the money-changers out of the temple.’
Other Occupy members unfurled a banner with the same slogan on the cathedral’s steps.
One of the four inside asked: ‘How can you possibly take money from these people?
‘Christianity will not die if you cannot keep the cathedral open. You don’t need this money.’

The Dean of St Paul’s, the Very Reverend Dr David Ison, responded: ‘We are already asking questions about that [sources of funding] and we will continue to do so.’
He told the protesters they had been ‘discourteous’ to interrupt the service, but added: ‘Ultimately what we are working for and what you are working for is going in the same direction.’

(lol folks. bit of dark,angry humor)

a most sincere message to an italian court. go fuck yourself commie shits. VIVA EL DUCE!

The Americans were tried in absentia, in the first trial involving extraordinary rendition, the CIA’s practice of transferring suspects to countries where torture is permitted

I have to be honest here. I do not care.  Why the F*** should I care?  And why should the Italians care?  I’m going to protest.  No pizza for a monthtwo weeks okay, no pizza for a week. There’s gotta be a better way to protest and voice my displeasure with Italy.

The Italians should spend more time with important things like beautiful Italian women. And they need to get rid of the immigrant leaches they’re supporting and spend serious money on the restoration of parts and saving the rest of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Money shortages have had a serious impact on the upkeep of these world treasures.  That’s what’s important.  Not worrying about how our guys in the CIA go about protecting our country.

I think our guys should do a hit on their idiot court. Send a message. Screw with the firm and you screw yourself and maybe your family too.

That should go double for these ass wipes who, had I the weapons and the skill and the training, would happily do my country the favor of taking them out.  Oh how I’d enjoy that. Damn. If only.  Yeah, that’s how much filled with raging hate for these insects I am.  I don’t understand why our guys aren’t deleting them. 

Human rights activists praise decision

US and international human rights groups praised the decision to uphold the verdict. Milan Prosecutor Armando Spataro told AP that the decision recognized that extraordinary rendition “is incompatible with democracy,” and that extradition based on the verdict was now warranted.

An Amnesty International expert on counter-terrorism and human rights, Julia Hall, echoed Spataro’s comments, saying “This important decision is another step towards accountability for violations that took place during the US rendition operations…The High Court has recognized that blanket claims of state secrecy cannot be used to shield the government from accountability for human rights violations.”

“Though legal questions remain, such as the validity of trials in absentia, American officials would be wise to heed the Italian court’s message that those who violate the law will be called to answer,” Jamil Dakwar, director of the ACLU Human Rights Program, said in statement.

Now here’s the story I got from BBC news.

Italy upholds verdict on CIA agents in rendition case

Italy’s highest appeals court has upheld guilty verdicts on 23 Americans, all but one of them CIA agents, accused of kidnapping a terror suspect.

Their case related to the abduction of an Egyptian cleric in Milan in 2003.

The man, known as Abu Omar, was allegedly flown to Egypt and tortured.

The Americans were tried in absentia, in the first trial involving extraordinary rendition, the CIA’s practice of transferring suspects to countries where torture is permitted.

The practice has been condemned by human rights groups as a violation of international agreements.

The group of Americans - 22 of whom were CIA agents and one an Air Force pilot - are believed to be living in the US and are unlikely to serve their sentences.

Italy has never requested their extradition but they will be unable to travel to Europe without risking arrest.

The group include the former station chief of CIA operations in Milan, Robert Seldon Lady.

At the time, he said that his opposition to the proposal to kidnap the imam was overruled.

The court upheld the sentences of the lower court which had sentenced all of them to seven years in prison, apart from Seldon Lady, who was given a nine-year sentence.

The Court of Cassation also ruled that five senior Italian secret service agents - including the former head of the country’s military intelligence agency - should be tried for their role in the kidnapping.

Nicolo Pollari resigned over the affair in which Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, an Egyptian imam also known as Abu Omar, was snatched from a Milan street.

Abu Omar says he was tortured for seven months in Egypt.

As the future of the English darkens, so the past seems to hold a light.

I wish I had thought of that.  I think it says a lot and it certainly exemplifies the state of being in our modern world.  The past is looking better all the time.  Look at this article.
Is this not stupid?  Beyond stupid really.  Words fail though I am groping for them.  Make an unpopular statement or say something in derision and you’re sent to an “equalities training” camp.  Training my fuckin’ ass.  Mind control more like.  Brainwashing probably.  But this is the world we live in today, and that sucks.

This I believe sums things up and I think bmews should have it posted permanently and visible in bold print.  It’s part of a letter to the editor of the Mail, has nothing to do directly with this article but …

Take a look.

N.W. Darby of London wrote,

“My wife went through the bombing of London during the last war.
One has to wonder whether today’s society was worth the sacrifice.”

I may as well explain why he wrote what he did.  His wife is wheelchair bound and 86 with a pacemaker.  At Heathrow Airport, she was taken into a private room and strip searched.  The staff were he said, “officious” and offered “no explanation for the search.”

So while he wrote because of that experience, what he said fits this situation as well and many others like it.  Just what was it that generation saved their country for?

For this?  I doubt that.

‘Minefield round traveller site’ jibe investigated

A councillor who said a minefield should be put up around a travellers’ site has been told to attend equalities training, the BBC has learned.

Conservative Mervyn Loynes, of South Cambridgeshire District Council, made a “silly remark in private”, Tory council leader Ray Manning said.
Mr Loynes, who was not available for comment, resigned from two planning committees following his comments.

The council said a report on the case would be published shortly.
Comments made by Mr Loynes ahead of a meeting in February to discuss travellers’ sites in Cambridgeshire were reported by a fellow councillor.

Mr Loynes has since been the subject of an internal investigation carried out by the council’s monitoring office and an “independent person”.
It concluded Mr Loynes had breached the council’s code of conduct relating to “respect, equalities and disrepute”.

A council spokesman said: “New national legislation for all local authorities means complaints will now be dealt with by the council’s monitoring officer alongside an appointed independent person, but reports will still be made public as they were under the former standards regime.

“Concluding cases in this way is less bureaucratic, and cost-effective to taxpayers.”
Mr Manning added: “Even before he was investigated, [Mr Loynes] decided to do the honourable thing by quitting his key roles in the two committees.” “He’s a decent and hard-working councillor.”

Mr Loynes was previously chair of the council’s planning enforcement committee and vice-chair of the planning committee.
Liberal Democrat opposition leader Sebastian Kindersley said: “We all make stupid comments, but we are not all chairmen of planning committees.
“Therefore, I think he has actually opened up the taxpayer and the council to being potentially sued by some disgruntled applicant or subject of a planning decision.”

Candy Sheridan, East of England vice-chair of the Gypsy Council, described Mr Loynes’ remark as “appalling”.

“It just should not be happening,” she said. “This type of behaviour needs to be addressed. It’s uncalled for and appalling.”
The council’s civic affairs committee will meet on 24 September to determine what information relating to the case will be made public.


Just curious.  How much ‘respect’ do the gypos show the communities they force themselves on?  What kind of ‘respect’ is it that makes travellers or whatever else the vermin call themselves, move on to green belt areas and dig up the land.  And the pc brigade wants to hold an ‘investigation.’

This type of behavior needs to be addressed, one fat assed broad speaking for a gypo council says.  Behavior?  She doesn’t apparently know the difference between speech and behavior.  Oh but she’s a vice chair. Woo-hoo. The high point of her politically correct life.

I wonder how much money the creeps who run these “equality training” sessions make.  I’d bet those session are meaningless to anyone forced to undergo the pleasure. I’d bet not one mind in a hundred would be changed and in fact would reinforce whatever thought process condemned them to the indignity.  But someone is raking it in.  Commie bastards. 

“One has to wonder whether today’s society was worth the sacrifice.”

mutual dislike of America and a row over a dirtbag

A mutual dislike of America and a row over that dirtbag Assange, brought together Ecuador and Iran.
Murky business deals are afoot.

I haven’t posted the whole article but it is worth reading.  Who’d have ever given any thought to things like this, without the investigative reporting of a paper like the Telegraph? 
Funny isn’t it, I approve of this and I really do believe they are truthful in the reportage.
BUT .. I never approved of Woodward and Bernstein and still believe that for whatever mistakes Nixon made, whatever unintended wrongs, okay. Intended as well, I always will believe Nixon was stitched up by the left.  I never thought it was all as bad as made out by those lefty loudmouthed bastards like Church and Absug. I don’t even know if I spelled the skanks name right and who cares? I’m glad they’re both dead and rotting.
Anyway … this isn’t about a former president.


Julian Assange case: Ecuador accused of allowing Iran to evade sanctions
Documents obtained by The Sunday Telegraph in Quito reveal detailed plans to establish substantial banking mechanisms between Iran and Ecuador.
By Philip Sherwell in Quito


The pictures show a backslapping mood of bonhomie between a left-wing South American president and the radical Islamic leader of Iran. Meeting in the mountain-ringed city of Quito last January, Presidents Rafael Correa of Ecuador and Mahmoud Ahmedinejad of Iran looked best of friends as they waved from the balcony of the Spanish-built Carondelet Palace.
Just how much an austere Islamist like Mr Ahmadinejad and a flamboyant, US-educated Catholic like Mr Correa really have in common is anybody’s guess.

But they do have a mutual dislike of America, a country described as “imperialist” by Mr Correa and as the “Great Satan” by Mr Ahmadinejad. And it is that same “enemy’s enemy is my friend” spirit that has now led Mr Correa to spark a diplomatic storm with Britain, after allowing the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, to take refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy.

The dispute, which has seen Britain surround the embassy with police, revolves around fears that Mr Assange, who is wanted for questioning over sexual assault claims in Sweden, may then end up being handed to America for trial over his leaking of a mass of US diplomatic cables.
That Mr Correa’s government has a highly questionable record on the very press freedom that Mr Assange claims to be a martyr is of little import: for Mr Assange, Ecuador’s support represents a potential get-out ticket, and for Mr Correa, it is simply another chance to poke Uncle Sam and its loyal ally, Britain, in the eye.

Yet for many of Mr Correa’s critics both at home and abroad, his tactical friendship with Mr Assange is indeed no more than that – a diplomatic nuisance, designed simply to make Mr Correa a new darling of the anti-American Left.
Of far greater concern, they say, is his burgeoning relationship with Iran – which, they claim, is now getting help from Quito to dodge the Western-backed sanctions imposed to stop it going ahead with its suspected nuclear weapons program.

Documents obtained by The Sunday Telegraph in Quito last week reveal that detailed plans have been drawn up to establish substantial banking mechanisms between the two countries, even though they lie 8,000 miles apart and have only the tiniest of trade links.

So why? After all, the raunchy nightlife of Quito is not going to attract Iranian tourists, for whom drinking and dancing is banned by religious decree. Nor do the bananas of which Ecuador is the world’s largest exporter feature high on Tehran’s import list.
Instead, the new financial ties have prompted suspicions that the real intention is to help Tehran circumvent sanctions by channelling funds through Quito.

“The trading links between the two countries are marginal, so this new orientation by our government can only be explained in ideological terms or hidden deals,” said Cesar Montufar, an opposition leader who first helped reveal the Iranian ties last month.

“Correa wants to position himself as a representative of the radical left on a global stage. The Assange case fits with that strategy. And so does his approach to Iran.”
What would make those links all the more appealing to Tehran is that Ecuador has used the US dollar as its own currency since a 2000 financial crisis brought the country to its knees. So any deal would give Iran, which is being choked of access to US dollars by international sanctions, immediate access to America’s financial backyard.

The mullahs of the Islamic Republic are not alone in being lured by Ecuador’s dollar economy and loose financial controls, however. Other far less pious customers are also believed to showing an interest, including global drugs cartels, money launderers and terror financiers, according to international financial crimes investigators and US anti-narcotics officials.

eu commie-sar wants more rights for muzzies and france has more mosques

When the EU speaks .... the sheep must listen.

Just a short item I happened upon and am happy to pass on.
By restrictive laws I take that to mean there should be no defending western culture and traditions and laws. And above all, lets not be critical of the rop.

Islam: Muslims integral part of Europe, EU Commissioner said

Stop restrictive laws, anti-Muslim discrimination

(ANSAMed) - STRASBOURG, JULY 24 - ‘’The time has come to accept Muslims as an integral part of European societies, and to guarantee them dignity and equality,’’ EU Human Rights Commissioner Mils Muiznieks said on Tuesday. ‘’Governments must stop anti-Muslim laws and policies, and reinforce bans on religious discrimination in all sectors,’’ Muiznieks said.

His statements come on response to recent surveys by institutions and NGOs showing that Muslims living in Europe want to interact with Europeans and participate fully in society, but that they are constantly marginalized by prejudice, discrimination, and violence. In some countries including Italy, restrictive anti-Muslim laws and measures are being introduced, while right-wing and populist parties use anti-Muslim rhetoric to sway voters, according to the surveys.

And from the same source, here’s a gem. Wonder how the average French man and woman feel. Oh who cares about them?  The socialists won the election so I guess we know how the majority feel on the subject.  Or maybe I’m not being fair?

France: 200 new mosques being built, but they are not enough

Will be added to 2,200 existing mosques

- PARIS, JULY 25 - France has 2,200 active mosques totaling 300,000 square meters, but given that each worshiper needs at least one square meter of space, that number should double in order to adequately serve all the faithful, according to the French Council of the Muslim Faith, which represents the French Muslims before the national government.

About 200 new mosques are currently being built in France with funding from worshipers, Muslim countries, an the World Islamic League, a Saudi Arabia-based NGO that covers missing construction expenses, according to Le Monde daily’s website.

France has been criticized in past years because of Muslims worshiping in the streets, especially in multi-ethnic neighborhoods. (ANSAMed).

I read this in yesterday’s paper and must share the idiocy.  Hastings is right, and many Brits are outraged at the idea.  But not apparently, the asinine judges who make dumb decisions.  But then, after all.  What can you expect from a place run by lunatics who let off criminals who assault ppl with the excuse that it wasn’t the gremlin who was responsible but the booze they drank.  Why should anyone expect more from a place run by apologists and hand wringing leftists who are actively working to destroy this country.  And trust me. They are.

If only the Queen would utter the words, “Who will rid us of these left wing nut cases,” surely some patriots would rise to the occasion and slay the red dragons.
At the rate things are progressing, maybe the things I didn’t think would happen as soon as in my lifetime, will.
And will ya get a load of those goofball names below. Jeesh. Bunch of letters strung together. Now who do you suppose convinced these life forms who normally grunt and swing thru trees, to launch a legal action?
Stupid fuckin guilty white folks and their leach like vampire lawyers.

I despair.  I really do.

The folly of judges, vulture lawyers and a nation addicted to masochism


At the High Court in London yesterday, the hearing began of a case in which three elderly Kenyans — Paulo Muoka Nzili, Wambuga Wa Nyingi and Jane Muthoni Mara — are suing the British Government for appalling injuries allegedly inflicted on them during the Mau Mau insurgency almost 60 years ago.


The British Government sought to argue at an earlier hearing that the defendants’ claim should be thrown out ‘given the length of time elapsed and the complex legal and constitutional questions the case raises’.

However, a judge rejected this appeal to common sense and decreed that the claim should go forward.
In the weeks ahead, we shall hear a banquet of evidence deeply unflattering to the British colonial regime, with evidence from academic witnesses and revelations from hitherto secret government files.

There is no danger that the lawyers who earn fat fees from all this will find the rich seam of taxpayers’ gold running out. There is much more where the Kenya case has come from.
Alleged atrocities are being resurrected from the Fifties Malayan Emergency (the 1948-60 conflict fought between UK, Commonwealth and other security forces against Communist insurgents in Malaya).

The Metropolitan Police has just established a task force of 30 officers to prepare prosecution cases against potential British Army murder suspects for Bloody Sunday in Londonderry in 1972. Their inquiries are expected to last three or four years.

All this, to my mind, represents an exercise in state masochism to which no other society on Earth would subject itself. It is just the latest venture for the human rights and compassion industry, with almost unlimited scope for profitable expansion.

As a historian, I am under no delusions about the shortcomings of British behaviour during the uprising of the Mau Mau, who wanted to drive the white man from Kenya and to which I will return in a moment.

What seems extraordinary is that, after the lapse of many decades, we can subject ourselves at vast expense to legal flagellation by foreign claimants.
Who can imagine that any British plaintiff with similar grievances would have a cat’s chance of securing redress in any overseas jurisdiction?
British prisoners who suffered appallingly at Japanese hands during World War II, and, for that matter, Chinese women who were forced into sexual slavery, have whistled in the wind for a hearing in Japan for almost 70 years.
Martin McGuinness, a career killer for the IRA, shook the Queen’s hand the other week. He commanded the Derry Brigade. Who could suppose that if the dependants of victims of Irish terrorism sought to take McGuinness, Gerry Adams or their comrades before an Irish court, they would get past first base?
The Mau Mau insurgents were exceptionally brutal people who, mostly between 1952 and 1954, murdered some 2,500 of their own people and around 100 whites, terrorised villages and inflicted ghastly atrocities on those who refused to take their blood oath.
But when Kenya became independent in 1963, Mau Mau veterans became celebrated as freedom-fighters.

In rather the same fashion, the two Jewish terrorists who murdered the resident British minister Lord Moyne in Cairo in November 1944, and were hanged for the crime the following year, were exhumed in 1975 at the insistent request of the state of Israel, and reinterred in the nation’s Hall of Heroes.

Much the same has happened to several old Irish nationalist killers. Although it may seem deeply repugnant that old terrorists should be raised to national heroic status, most of us can live with it as the way of the world.
But it is cringe-making to watch the spectacle of citizens of former colonies that have been independent for many decades turning up in London to exploit our feeble-minded justice system.

judges see things differently. I fear that the human rights bonanza has gone to their heads.
Such is their conceit that they believe they can divine truth across the fog of decades. Such is their contempt for real life that they care nothing about the colossal waste of taxpayers’ money over which they preside.

Look, for example, at Lord Savile, who squandered £200 million conducting his Bloody Sunday inquiry, and still cannot understand what the rest of us think he did wrong. 
If the former Mau Mau plaintiffs win their case at the High Court and receive a truckload of cash, this will open the way for thousands more claimants from every corner of the old Empire.

Some enthusiasts say the opening of this case was a proud day for British justice, showing our determination to face up to our dirty colonial past, and our commitment to human rights.

To many of us, however, it merely highlights the folly of the judiciary and their inability to bring the smallest crumb of common sense to the lofty business of administering justice.
The Kenyan case is properly the business of historians, not of Britain’s legal vulture culture.

Greek far-right party member assaults female politicians on TV.

Sorry but there wasn’t any embed. Worth seeing. Fun in fact. Mood matching the weather tonight.

okay perhaps he should have been what? Calmer? Yeah I guess but. I can see where two ppl shouting at each other and tempers get up to speed and in frustration he tosses water at her. But then the fat commie slag gets into it too and he’s wound up tighter then is good for either of them and boom. He let fly. And because he represents the right and of course every single person in the world who is right of center is automatically a rabid Nazi, folks will dump on him.
Although I just noticed, in his case he may be that rabid person.

Too bad we couldn’t see what came before and what I mean is. One of the two might have interrupted the other and so the verbal fight started first. Sometimes I hear it on BBC Radio 4, three ppl all talking or sometimes shouting over each other, and I wish I could whack em all. By which I mean hit not kill. Just to be clear on that. And other times someone is trying to make a point and someone else, and it is almost always someone on the left, talks over them. Won’t shut the hell up and keeps on shouting. Other times the moderator will ask a question of someone, and take a half hour to do it, and then the jerk ends up answering his own damn question. So yeah, I can see where someone will just say oh the hell with it and swing, cos they’ve taken all the bs they can stand. Would love to see some of that in our congress or senate or in parliament. Get soooooo sick of hearing the honorable gentleman and that other slop, my learned friend, when we all know what they really think and mean. And anyway, they’re only politicians which means they’re mostly lying bastards. I don’t even trust the ones I think I like. And really, the supposed “outrage” expressed by some is pure hokum anyway. They have to express disapproval. Don’t they?  Can you just imagine the reaction if one of them said, well, The broad wouldn’t shut the hell up and let him speak.  Or, was it the other way round? Whatever, he didn’t like her attitude. LOL.

Outrage as Greek far-right party member assaults female politicians on TV
By Harry Papachristou and Dina Kyriakidou | Reuters – 4 hours ago

ATHENS (Reuters) - The spokesman of Greece’s far-right Golden Dawn party slapped one female leftist politician in the face and threw a glass of water at another during a live TV debate on Thursday, causing a political uproar and an order for his arrest.

Other political parties condemned Ilias Kasidiaris for the assault on the two women during a morning talk show on private television station Antenna ahead of the June 17 parliamentary election.
Kasidiaris, whose party entered parliament for the first time on May 6, was locked in a room at the TV studio but broke down a door and escaped, the TV host said.
A public prosecutor ordered police to track him down and arrest him on charges of causing serious bodily harm, a court official said.
The TV debate descended into chaos when Kasidiaris threw a glass of water at Rena Dourou, a member of the radical leftist SYRIZA party and called her a “joke”.
As other panellists watched in stunned silence, Communist party deputy Liana Kanelli intervened on Dourou’s behalf, throwing a newspaper at Kasidiaris, who called her a “commie”, stood up, pushed her and hit her hard in the face.
“I was worried he might throw the glass and hurt somebody,” Kanelli told reporters later. She showed a dark bruise on her cheek, saying: “It’s my badge of honour.”
Golden Dawn came from nowhere to win 7 percent of the inconclusive vote in May and enter parliament for the first time, riding a wave of hostility towards illegal immigrants in austerity-ridden Greece.
The party denies it is neo-Nazi, though its chief Nikos Mihaloliakos delivers Nazi salutes and has denied the Holocaust.

It’s almost creepy, but I like it

Once again Chris Muir’s Day By Day comic strip echoes something I said in yesterday’s post on Obama’s new Forward! slogan. This has happened a fair number of times before. Great minds thinking alike, or a call for Captain Obvious, or just another pure coincidence? I’m not sure, but I like the idea that my ideas are being picked up and spread around. Or that they occur to lots of other people. That makes me feel part of a bigger group and less extreme. More normal. Which is a nice feeling in today’s seriously left-leaning world. Day By Day runs on the sidebar of a whole lot of VRWC blogs. You go Muir!


Godwin’s Law is one of those humorous Internet “rules” that we see all the time. It says that in any debate, the person who first calls the other one a Nazi loses (or generally drags the Nazis into the debate). But the law only applies when the analogy is false. In this case, the steps from the Red rallying cry Forward! to the gates of the camps are not that many, and in a straight line. More so, given that we all saw that video a couple of years back where some guy who had snuck into the Weather Underground inner sanctum of Obama’s friend, neighbor, and ghost writer Bill Ayers, and related Ayers’ plans for re-education/elimination camps for huge swaths of the population. And that kind of plan is Nazism of the highest order.

“Arbeit Macht Frei” is a wonderful phrase in it’s original context, because Work really does Set You Free. Free from want, free from poverty. Free from powerless serfdom. And from there, via the opportunity for education that comes with a level of success greater than bare existence, eventually free from the dull-witted world of animals and into the enlightened world of civilized humanity. But of all the cliches co-opted and corrupted by the Left - and the Nazis were an extremely Left Wing bunch, regardless of what today’s Leftists would have you believe (Nazism is only Right Wing if your concept of “center” is totalitarian communism) - that it has pretty much become the Ultimate Lie. Not because the phrase itself is wrong. Because these words were hung over the main gates of the Nazi death camps in WWII.


the gates of Dachau

When you wave the Red Banner and take as your own the slogans of tyranny and urge the people Forward! on the road to “Progress” ... that road leads to Hell ... and the camps are just a few semantic steps along the way.  Granted that Muir is commenting on an utterly unconstitutional bill of Harry Reid’s that passed in the Senate the other day, wherein people who are behind in their taxes will have their passports revoked - without due process - and thus not be allowed to leave the country. You don’t introduce such a bill unless your ideology is already so far left that it’s over the “normal” American horizon. And instead of being laughed at, mocked, and deservedly tarred and feathered, the rest of the Senate supports you and passes the bill more than just along party lines ... proof that the ideology is rampant in that chamber of our government. Godwin’s Law does not apply here. The Nazi allusion is correct.

We need more than a new McCarthy. We need a purge. We need a new government. Top down.

The Commie Comes Out


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cat is out of the bag

Scientific American: Only Way To Beat Global Warming Is One World Totalitarian Government

Well, gee, I toldja so a few years back, right?

Effective World Government Will Be Needed to Stave Off Climate Catastrophe
To be effective, a new set of institutions would have to be imbued with heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers. There would have to be consideration of some way of embracing head-in-the-cloud answers to social problems that are usually dismissed by policymakers as academic naivete. In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non, but that kind of pronouncement also profoundly strains credibility in the chaos of the political sphere.

Behavioral economics and other forward-looking disciplines in the social sciences try to grapple with weighty questions. But they have never taken on a challenge of this scale, recruiting all seven billion of us to act in unison. The ability to sustain change globally across the entire human population over periods far beyond anything ever attempted would appear to push the relevant objectives well beyond the realm of the attainable. If we are ever to cope with climate change in any fundamental way, radical solutions on the social side are where we must focus, though. The relative efficiency of the next generation of solar cells is trivial by comparison.

The author also suggests downplaying nuclear power and clean coal, but at least has the honesty to ponder the “gosh, how do we set it up so that a tyrant can’t abuse the system if he gets in charge?” issue. Too bad no answer to that one is included. He does write in a nice erudite style, which slightly hides and softens the message, which is as cold and absolute as only Science or Stalin can be.

Stupid greenies. You aren’t going to push developed nations back into the stone age, and you aren’t going to stop developing nations from developing. If they ever do. If you really want to minimize waste heat and CO2 levels, then you have no other realistic choice: beef must go, and the world must learn to live on chicken and fish. Oh, and everything must run on electricity, generated by nuclear reactors and tidal generators. Wind power is a circle jerk daydream, and solar power is a minimal localized solution with a huge cost overhead and a nearly infinite break even point.

And now the cat is completely out of the bag: global communism is the answer to the “problem”. Redistribution and rationing, by force. Great, let’s do it. Because the first thing the Oceania Ministry of Finance will figure out is that investing in Eastasia is a waste; no matter how much money, effort, or technology you invest there, things will never improve. And Eastasia is wall to wall people, and always has been. Better to just cut them off now; in 20 years there won’t be anyone left, and think how much less waste heat and CO2 that will mean.

i will make london a beacon of islam. red ken speaks.

Back for a short spell after a nightmare couple of weeks. Things settling down but going slowly.

My wife has been quite ill and I’ve been putting an anti-biotic ointment in her right eye every three hours.
So my time hasn’t been entirely my own.  That’s not a gripe btw.  She’s the very best friend I’ve ever had.
It’s very frustrating seeing a loved one in pain or any kind of discomfort, and helpless to do anything to take the pain away.  It all started 2 weeks ago when she complained about severe pain in her right eye, and a violent headache.  She’s never been subject to headaches, and our first unspoken thought was the history of her late brother who passed away age 65 of a brain tumor.
Well most fortunately that isn’t the problem, but Shingles is and there’s more to tell but will save it for another time.  It isn’t pretty and it is very, very painful. And the older you are, the worse it is.  We are informed that the pain can last for a month or more after the virus itself has gone.
At the moment to be honest, I feel a bit burned out but my wife feels more then that and so I can’t ignore the responsibility of sharing the following.

A couple of items caught my eye and so I booted this thing to share the insanity I read about.

Some of you already know that the former mayor of London is a Communist ( he says he is ) referred to as Red Ken Livingston.  He lost the last election to a brainy, shambolic and often brilliantly funny Conservative named Boris Johnson.  Well, Red Ken wants his old job back and so is once again running for the office he lost to Boris.  The Johnson’s are btw, a family of writers and the father, Stanley Johnson, has had a most adventurous life. 

So here is Red Ken for your reading pleasure. The hopeful future once again London mayor.
Who says;

By Andrew Gilligan

Ken Livingstone has promised to turn London into a “beacon” for the words of the Prophet Mohammed in a sermon at one of the capital’s most controversial mosques.
Mr Livingstone, Labour’s candidate for mayor of London, pledged to “educate the mass of Londoners” in Islam, saying:  “That will help to cement our city as a beacon that demonstrates the meaning of the words of the Prophet.” Mr Livingstone described Mohammed’s words in his last sermon as “an agenda for all humanity.”

He praised the Prophet’s last sermon, telling his audience: “I want to spend the next four years making sure that every non-Muslim in London knows and understands [its] words and message.” He also promised to “make your life a bit easier financially.”
Mr Livingstone was speaking at last Friday’s Jummah prayer at the North London Central Mosque, also known as Finsbury Park Mosque, formerly controlled by the terrorist recruiter Abu Hamza.

Hamza was removed in 2003 but the mosque is now controlled by an Islamist organisation, the Muslim Association of Britain, which has been linked to the banned terror group, Hamas. A man who has acted as spokesman for the current leadership, Azzam Tamimi, is on record as supporting suicide bombings. One of the mosque’s current directors, Mohammed Sawalha, is described by the BBC as a former senior figure in Hamas who “is said to have masterminded much of Hamas’s political and military strategy” from his post in London.

In 2009 Mr Sawalha also signed the Istanbul Declaration which calls for attacks against the allies of Israel, which include the UK. The British Government interpreted it as calling for attacks on British troops.

In 2010, the Labour MP Khalid Mahmood, a Muslim moderate, resigned from the mosque’s board of trustees and reported it to the Charity Commission, accusing the mosque of forging his signature on key legal documents.

Mr Livingstone has been dogged by allegations of links to Islamic fundamentalism. In 2010, in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, he campaigned against his own party’s candidate to back a controversial independent politician, Lutfur Rahman, sacked by Labour for his links to a Muslim extremist group, the Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE).

During his mayoralty, Mr Livingstone’s London Development Agency channelled hundreds of thousands of pounds to the East London Mosque in Tower Hamlets, controlled by the IFE, even though senior LDA managers strongly opposed the grant. In return, IFE activists campaigned strongly for him at the 2008 mayoral elections, boasting that they “got out the vote” for Mr Livingstone and achieving dramatic swingsto him in their east London heartland.

Mr Livingstone also gave thousands of pounds of public money to the Muslim Welfare House, a charity closely associated with the Finsbury Park Mosque, which signed an open letter backing his re-election campaign in 2008.

red ken source

Seems to us islamophobic , raaaaaacist right wingers that not just London, but a section of the country has already become that without Mr. Livingston’s help.
Take a look at this.

One in five young Asians think honour violence can be justified

One in five young Asians believe women deserve “physical punishment” if they dishonour their families, a survey has revealed.
By Tom Whitehead

Some three per cent even think murder, or so-called “honour killings”, can be justified in some circumstances
And two thirds of young British Asians, including young women, say families should live according to the concept of “honour”, according to the poll for BBC Panorama.

The findings come despite attempts by politicians, the police and prosecutors to send out a strong message that honour-based violence is unacceptable.
Police fear as many as 12 people a year are victims of honour killings in the UK and a recent survey suggested there are more than 2,800 honour crimes committed annually – the equivalent of eight a day.

Last week, the mother of a teenager stabbed to death by her Asian boyfriend claimed her daughter was the first white victim of an honour killing.
Laura Wilson, 17, was repeatedly knifed in the head on a secluded tow path by Ashtiaq Ashgar in 2010 after their relationship turned sour. He was subsequently jailed for at least17-and-a-half years.

In the most high profile case, five men were eventually jailed over the 2006 murder of Banaz Mahmod, including her own father.
The lead prosecutor for honour crimes warned the latest survey reveals campaigners now face a new generation of supports of honour violence.
Nazir Afzal, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “I thought this was a generational thing, it was something that would die out with my generation.
“Unfortunately, I’ve come across many young people who think the same way.”

The survey of 500 Asian men aged 16 to 34 was conducted for a Panorama investigation in to honour crimes.
It found 18 per cent thought punishments on women could be justified in some circumstances if they had dishonoured their family.
That could include disobeying a father’s wishes, wanting to marry someone the family or community considered unacceptable, going out in the evening unaccompanied or dressing in an unacceptable manner.
Three per cent said honour killing could be justified while a similar proportion were undecided.
Some 69 per cent said families should live according to the concept of honour of “izzat”.
Mr Afzal told Panorama: “We don’t know the true figure of honour killings. It’s anything between 10 and 12 a year in this country.
“I don’t know how many other unmarked graves there are in our green and pleasant land, I don’t know. And that suggests to me that we’re underestimating this issue.

“My view is there’s no place for multicultural sensitivity in this situation ... This is something that we cannot tolerate.”
Jasvinder Sanghera, of Karma Nirvana, set up a helpline for women at risk of honour based violence. At 14, she was imprisoned in her bedroom after refusing to marry a man she had never met.

“I was conditioned to learn that from a very young age, it is dishonourable to make eye contact with men, sit with men,” she said.
“And the rules shift and change as you get older, you’re not allowed to have boyfriends, be seen talking to the opposite sex, to cut your hair, wear make-up. You are taught these are all dishonourable acts of behaviour.”

In 2010, Mohammed Ali and Omar Hussain were jailed for life for the murder of Banaz Mahmod in January 2006, after being extradited from Iraq.
The men carried out the murder with a third man, Mohammad Hama, on behalf of Miss Mahmod’s father, Mahmod Mahmod, and his brother, Ari.
Hama and Miss Mahmod’s father and uncle, members of the Kurdish community, were jailed at the Old Bailey in 2007.

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.
