well talk about barking moonbats … as if things aren’t stupid enough … there aren’t enough bats

No kidding BMEWS readers.  If the powers that be in this country can find different ways to do themselves in, they will do so and happily wave as their ship sinks.

Keep in mind that not every Brit goes along with the lunacy.  I don’t believe most do.  Not the ones I speak to anyway.  So how does this stuff happen?  I’m at a total loss to explain it.  It’s way beyond pc gone amuck.

Imagine this guys ... you own a business and two ppl are sharing a gag or a comment.  Someone overhears what is being said AND ... they can charge harassment under a new law if they say it offends them.  And that’s the least of a law taking effect today, a law pushed thru by the previous govt. under that hag, Harriet Harperson. (Harman) I tell ya, they are getting flakier and flakier here.

However .... here is something even dumber.  Oh, you didn’t think things could get dumber? Well in Spain, men are to be allowed breast feeding time off.
You could not make this up.  Govts. are just plain stupid when it come to common sense and going overboard to ensure that all people and all things MUST be equal. 

Seems that since women are given an hour or so to tend baby, then husbands also must get equal time.  Just what they’re supposed to do during this time isn’t stated.  Maybe join wifey dear and watch? Oh yeah, they still get paid for the time off. I think it’s called Spanish Practice. Pay but no work.


Death of the office joke: Coalition enacts Harriet’s PC equality law which means ANYONE can sue for ANYTHING that offends them

By Daily Mail Reporter

New equality laws masterminded by Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman have come into force today, threatening to create a political correctness minefield for recession-hit businesses.

Under the Act, vegans, teetotallers and atheists are to be given the same protection against discrimination as religious groups while gipsies and travellers will get special favours because of the ‘many socio-economic disadvantages’ they face.

There is also a provision which extends protection from third party harassment, meaning employers have a responsibility to shield their staff, where possible, from abuse by customers.

This has led to fears that bosses could be sued for jokes or comments that staff overhear and find offensive - even if it is not directed at or about them.
The Act, which ministers claim will help stamp out pay discrimination, have been slammed by employer groups who claim it will cost £189million to implement.

firms will be banned from asking job applicants about their health, while new protections for disabled people will make it easier for staff who have taken a large number of sick days or who look after elderly relatives to win unfair dismissal cases.

The Act will also make is easier for staff to claim they were discriminated against because of disability because they no longer have to prove they were treated less favourably than a non-disabled colleague.

Tory and Lib Dem ministers are still arguing about whether to implement Miss Harman’s notorious plans to force local authorities to discriminate in favour of the poor in order to narrow income inequalities.

The plans were hailed as ‘socialism in a single clause’ when Miss Harman unveiled them last year.

READ ALL OF IT HERE

UPDATE ... I goofed in a way. What way?  Well ... it wasn’t the Spanish that enforced this law.  I read it wrong.

The mandate to enforce was done by ....The European Union Court of Justice in Luxembourg

can anyone spell “sovereignty?” Anyone care anymore?

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

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