Things can only get better

On May 7th BBC Parliament will be showing their coverage of the 1997 General Election.

I'm pretty confident that when it gets to the wee small hours and we're watching the rendition of 'Things Can Only Get Better' by D:Ream, I might finally start to believe it!

Slightly more information here

I don't want to pass comment on the Virginia Tech shootings. There's nothing I can say which hasn't been said already.

That said, I missed this until today and think people should know about it.

A nation of Immigrants

A 'pamphlet' has been released claiming the UK may have reached a tipping point which may irreversibly change the character of our nation.

I think the report is right.

Before anyone makes a comment that discussion about this is racist, please, go fuck yourself, stop stifling debate!

This country is geographically insignificant with limited resources.

Its already overpopulated, crime is high, people can't afford decent homes because we aren't building enough to cope with demand.

We've always been a welcoming nation but we've been taken advantage of in recent years.

Enough is enough. Time for two things:

1). No more. Don't bother coming, to most people, I think its fair to say new immigrants (irrespective of reason) are no longer welcome. A self serving, self absorbed little 'elite' group insist otherwise - You are wrong. Its ok for you people on your high salaries with your 'bought and paid for' homes to tell the rest of us which views to take. Doesn't make you right though.

2). A purge. We should check every single 'immigrant', check their status, whether they have any involvement with criminality, whether they're a contributor or detractor when it comes to society and then decide whether they should stay or go. None of this messing around with immigration tribunals (which are a joke), either in or out. If they're out - put them on the next flight out of here.

This has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. I make no comment about a particular nation, colour, creed or religion. All i know is that I'm sick and tired of people taking advantage of our good will. I'm sick and tired of overcrowding, lectures about what I can/can't think or say.

To hell with it. This country belongs to those born here. End of.

Question Tony Blair

The BBC are inviting Questions for Tony Blair.

A 'selection' of questions will be put to him on the Politics show this Sunday, 15th April.

Blair: The man is taking the piss!

Forget whatever else we know about Tony 'War Criminal' Blair for a moment.

Lets consider his comments today about the Sailors stories farce.

Apparently, Blair thinks that -

"in hindsight" the navy's decision to allow sailors held captive in Iran to sell their stories to the media was not a "good idea".

Hindsight? What is the man talking about. Was blatant from the off that it was a terrible idea. It was condemned before the papers hit the press. Hindsight?! Give me a break!

Apparently Blair wasn't "involved in the decision". Does anyone believe him? Really.. do any of you believe a word this man says?!

Earlier, Defence Secretary Des Browne said he took full responsibility for allowing the stories to be sold.

Lots of Labour Ministers 'take responsibility' for poor decisions. How come they remain in office? Surely flawed decision making at this level should result in the sack - immediately?

Mr Blair said that he did not think such stories would be sold in future.

Were they sold in the past? Were they fuck! I'm reminded of Winston Smith's job in 1984, seems Blair thinks he can rewrite the past.

"With hindsight was that a good idea? No, precisely because people would then misrepresent that somehow the navy were encouraging people to sell their stories, which they weren't doing at all."

Err. No. That isn't the issue at all. Serving members of the armed forces should never profit from the role in this disgusting way.

As for the propaganda value, please! We look like idiots from whichever angle you look at this farce.

He said he, and the navy, were "not content" with the decision but felt they had little choice, given that the stories had to be told in the freed captives' own interests "to counteract the propaganda the Iranians had put out using them".

What absolute nonsense! If there was a good reason to get these stories out, the Sailors could have quite easily issued a statement through the MOD, without payment, without seeming like greedy, manipulated fools.

Mr Cameron responded to Mr Browne's statement by saying there should be a full Ministry of Defence inquiry, to allow lessons to be learned.

He's no better. Enquiry! As Jim Royle would say - "enquiry my arse!". If Browne made the decision, his head should roll.

Cameron - grow some balls or piss off back to your posh country pad and stay they you useless berk!

For me, this has once again shown our government to be a bunch of idiotic liars, incompetent spin merchants, propagandists and imbeciles.

What a bunch of wankers!

More propaganda: Sailors to sell stories

It was revealed today that the MOD (yeah, right, so this didn't come from Downing Street?) have allowed the captured sailors to sell their stories to the press.

What a sickening state of affairs.

The propaganda coming out of the UK for the duration of this 'crisis' was no different from that coming out of Iran: lies & spin.

What an undignified approach to this event.

I wasn't going to criticise the sailors directly, I feel that they probably took the right actions in not fighting back when massively outnumbered. I think they made a dignified (although not entirely true) statement at their Press Conference.

If they wish to get "their side of the story" out there then they should provide a statement which the MOD should release. They should not profit from this event. They should not allow themselves to be a propaganda tool for the government.

This type of thing does them great dis-service personally and plays into the hands of Iran (assuming Iran were in the wrong).

The whole situation is quite bizarre as it seems nobody has gained any strength or credibility. What it has done though is prove that the UK is a weak, banana state republic which has disgraced itself yet again on the world stage.

A message to the sailors: take your 2 weeks leave, do with it as you wish then quit or go back to work. I personally don't want to see or hear from you again. I'm sure this is representative of all but the Little Englanders at the Sun & Mirror.

More on Patientline

My thanks to Shutter for pointing out this post about Patientline.

Please take a little time out of your day to read more about this greedy vulture preying on the weak and elderly.

They were spying


Our government once again have went on the world stage and told blatant lies.

Are we surprised? No.

Are some of us angry? Yes.

Quite frankly its proven beyond any doubt that Iran were right to take these spies prisoner. I find the whole thing despicable.

I don't blame the servicemen for doing what they were ordered to do. I blame those at the top.

I'll say it once again, loud and clear; Bastards.

Britain now has no credibility whatsoever.

I am truly ashamed to be British

Iran release captives; time to comment

So Iran is about to release the 15 British personnel it arrested on March 23rd.

Perhaps now is an appropriate time to look back on this event and the response of the British Government.

The government insisted that these people were in Iraqi waters when they were detained.

Many people did not trust this statement due to the lies we had prior to our invasion of Iraq

People always said that the government might not be trusted in circumstances such as this in future. I firmly believe that to be the case on this occasion.

We dithered and sounded weak on the world stage

We are weak

What could we have done about this? Short of Nuking Tehran, absolutley nothing. We simply no longer have the military strength to take on this country. What with the reduction in our military capacity and the ongoing occupation of Iraq, its hardly surprising.

China and Russia crippled our lame attempt to get a statement at the UN, instead, we got a feeble comment which was laughable.

Ahh, but diplomacy saved the day

Really?! Two weeks of international humiliation for our service men & women, our nation and government is a good thing?!

Those Iranians are a bunch of duplicitous bastards

Profoundly disagree. We've been dictating to other nations for so long that when they stand up to us, we start calling them lunatics, dangerous, etc. Its not them who invaded Iraq without moral or legal justification. Its not them who've historically destroyed the character of the middle east, its not them who caused the conflict in the middle east. No, that lies firmly on our shoulders. We should learn our lesson - mind our own business. If Iran want Nukes, let them have them, if "we" don't want them to have them, destroy ours.

We don't own the world, we aren't in charge, we're a weak, morally bankrupt, greedy, undemocratic, uncivilised country.

We should spend a considerable amount of time assessing our priorities and putting right the ills of our society without dictating to others.

As for Blair swanning around like he's a hero: Fuck you, war criminal!
