US And British Military Demise - Lions Led By Donkeys

On this day when, we give thanks to those who served in the US military and remember those British warriors who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy our freedoms, stories still abound in the media about the lack of respect shown by the top brass who are supposedly in charge of our defence.

It has been mentioned on this site before that the military is there to guarantee our freedom and defence and therefore should be exempt from the usual games played by self serving politicians who's only concern is the implementation of their own agenda.

It has also been mentioned that the left has an ideological hatred of the military and this cannot be demonstrated more clearly than following the actions of President Obama with respect to the military machine of which he is the Commander in Chief.

As the world's foremost 'progressive',  the American military machine was always going to be the number one target of his promised 'fundamental transformation' of America. This agenda, combined with the obsession of 'progressives' with sexual orientation, has spelled disaster for the US military.

President Obama has been carrying out a purge of anyone among the military top brass who is deemed to oppose his administration's plans for a feminized or gender neutral military. There are reports that many of America's most experienced military top brass have been relieved of their duty for having the temerity to disagree with the career politicians of the White House administration.

The question that is being rightly asked is, how can an administration made up of career politicians led by a community organizer, possibly know what effects their meddling with the military will have on moral and its effectiveness as a fighting force?

The debacle over the new gender neutral hat for the US Marines is a classic example of bringing sexuality politics where it doesn't belong. This is being done not to improve moral and make the US Marines a better fighting force but to satisfy their perverted ideology.

Things are no better across the Atlantic where Great Britain's media created Prime Minister, David Cameron, is busy demolishing the once mighty British military machine.

The Royal Navy has been reduced to a handful of boats including a single aircraft carrier that is incapable of launching strike aircraft. The historic shipyards at Portsmouth are being closed as a political sop to the Scottish nationalists and two Royal Navy support vessels are being built in South Korea.

Cameron also sold off, at a knockdown price, the entire fleet of Harriers leaving the  Royal  Navy/Airforce with no VSTOL capability. The Royal Airforce is now dependent upon some ageing Tornado's and the Euro fighter; this was designed over a decade ago and is fast becoming obsolete.

The Army is being reduced to eighty thousand troops with many soldiers receiving their redundancy notices while on active service in Afghanistan.

Military numbers will be below that of Germany after it was disarmed at the Treaty of Versailles. There is a purpose to Cameron's deliberate evisceration of the British military machine and it is that he is preparing it for absorption into the European Union Joint Defence Force.

This will have the effect of signaling the end of one of Great Britain's greatest institutions; an institution that gives the country its identity as a free, independent, sovereign nation.  For Cameron, Clegg and Red Ed Miliband,  their beloved United States of Europe will be one step closer, and for them it will be mission accomplished.

To drive home the country's contempt for the soldiers serving on the front line,  the Head of the Armed forces, General Sir Nick Houghton, is calling for the full weight of the law to brought down of the head of Marine A, who has been found guilty of shooting dead a Taliban terrorist.

Putting his politically correct 'progressive' credentials before the well being of his soldiers, brave Sir Nick claims that "murder is murder, this is a heinous crime, its gravity means he must be severely punished". There should be no clemency.

He then blathers on about "eroding the moral ascendancy over our enemies". By the very fact that the troops are in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban signals that they already have the moral ascendancy. If they didn't have it already, they wouldn't be there. Dispatching one terrorist to Paradise where he wants to be anyway, does not erode the moral ascendancy.

The former Chief of the Defence staff, Lord Guthrie is also calling for Marine A to be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.

Sir Nick Houghton and Lord Guthrie refuse to use the deployment from hell, the constant attacks by the enemy, the deaths of twenty three comrades, and the grisly display of limbs hung in a tree, as mitigation. They are determined to punish this Royal Marine both severely and publicly.

This appalling behavior toward a serving Royal Marine is a clear demonstration that political correctness has a much higher priority than being loyal to ones' own troops serving on the front line.

Taking the behavior of President Obama toward the American military and David Cameron toward the British, it should be easy to spot the common attitude that these two 'progressives' have toward the two greatest military machines in history. These two machines have not only kept the American and British people free, they have liberated millions of oppressed people across the planet.

These two so called 'leaders' and the donkeys that do their dirty work are not fit to polish the buttons on the uniforms of our bravest.


I am embarking on a quick tour of the homeland so blogging will be intermittent for a little while. I hope to be in a position to update my Facebook pages so please feel free to take a look. It should be fun.

Thank you for taking time to read this stuff, your patronage is much appreciated.

I hope to be visiting, Kingston upon Thames, Surbiton and Hounslow in England.

In Wales, Porthcawl, Pontypridd, Rhondda, Aberdare, Merthyr Tydfil, Dowlais, Ebbw Vale, Abergavenny,  Blaenavon, Penderyn and Brecon.

If you should see a bloke in a pub wearing a red jacket with a cartoon bunny on the right arm, feel free to say hello (and me a buy me a beer).

Royal Marine Gets Life For Dispatching Insurgent - Tony Blair Just Gets Rich

By an amazing coincidence I read only yesterday a column written by George Orwell for the Tribune newspaper dated 31 December 1943. It was in reference to 'war guilt' and the surprise that people seem to have when they discover that war is not a crime.

One of the main headlines today is that a Royal Marine has been sentenced to life imprisonment for dispatching an enemy combatant who he was trained specifically to kill.

The column by Orwell and the trial of the Royal Marine has certain parallels and these raise some issues that should be taken into consideration when officers make the decision to prosecute soldiers for killing the enemy.

Before referring to Orwell and this particular case, it is worth looking back briefly at the incident in question.

As I understand it, the accused Marines were sent to check an area for live insurgents after a helicopter had attacked a group of Taliban killers.

They found one who was barely alive and after a few expletives he was dispatched to meet his maker accompanied by a Shakespearean quote from Hamlet.

The incident came to the attention of an officer and it appears the disciplinary process started from there.

Unfortunately the action was caught on a helmet camera and one of the Marines kept a diary which was used in evidence.

The dispatching Marine also made reference to the Geneva Convention which helped seal his fate.

The prosecuting attorney, David Perry QC, stated that the incident was "an execution of a man who was entitled to be treated with dignity and respect and entitled to be treated as any British service man, or service woman, would be entitled to be treated in a similar situation".

I am not sure which planet Mr. Perry QC hails from, but what he doesn't tell us is, that although British service men and women are theoretically entitled to respect and dignity, would they get it from the Taliban?

The Taliban are a formidable, utterly ruthless enemy who, as everyone knows, 'worship death like we worship life', they show no quarter nor do they ask for any in return. They have declared jihad on the west and have threatened to behead all infidels if they do not accept domination by their desert death cult.

The Taliban butcher their own kind with no mercy, including women and children, for partaking of normal activities such as attending school or flying a kite.

The Geneva Convention does not exist for these medieval barbarians therefore one cannot expect to win a war when only one side fights by the rules.

Did Mr. Perry QC take into account the stress these Marines were under after losing seven comrades killed in action and another forty injured, some with life changing injuries?

Does he accept that only people who have experienced the heat of battle can understand what being attacked every single day does to ones mental equilibrium, let alone sustaining ten casualties in a twenty four hour period.

One of the Marines on trial described as "absolutely devastating" seeing some of his comrades killed in action and their body parts hung in trees as trophies by the same Taliban insurgents who are "entitled to be treated with dignity and respect" from the comrades of the fallen.

Would it not have been better to use the effects of these attacks as mitigation, then send the Marines on some R and R for the purpose of de-stressing, rather than putting them on trial for murder?

Training Marines to kill the enemy, then prosecuting them for murder when they do just that because they didn't kill them within the rules, smacks of posturing.

This incident could have been dealt with in-house, instead the 'powers that be' chose to parade it on the international stage; this show trial has the effect of burnishing their compassionate. 'progressive' credentials for their masters at the UN.

The lessons that should be learned by military men and women who are sent into harms way are this:

a) Always remember some of your officers will stitch you up if it enhances their 'progressive' reputation on the international stage.

b) If you are going to keep a diary, make sure to keep it well hidden.

c) Switch off the helmet camera and microphones in dodgy situations.

As for George Orwell, he summed up the utter stupidity of the attitude to 'official war'. He demonstrates how a soldier dispatching one enemy outside the rules gets charged with murder but the people responsible for starting the war and killing millions are not guilty of anything.

Tony Blair, who is accused by a growing number of people of starting an illegal war in which hundreds of thousands of civilians were killed, is now laughably, a multi-millionaire peace envoy.

While helmet cameras and diaries have been used in evidence against the Marines, the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Jeremy Heywood, is steadfastly refusing to release documents of communications between Blair, Bush and later Brown, to the Chilcot inquiry.

This inquiry was instituted to determine Blair's justification for the Iraq war. Two previous inquiries were so obviously flawed they were dismissed as pure whitewash.

It would appear that Blair has something to hide and the people have a right to know what it is.

(I was unable to find a link so I will write his quotes as they are classic Orwell).

"Hitler, it appears, has not done anything actionable.  He has not raped anybody, nor carried off any pieces of loot with his own hands, nor personally flogged any prisoners, buried any wounded men fact he has not done any of the things which enemy nationals are usually credited with doing in war-time.  He has merely precipitated a world war which will perhaps have cost twenty million lives before it ends. And there is nothing illegal in that". 

He goes on to describe how the Kharkov trials attempted to pin the guilt on Hitler and the rest, for atrocities committed on the Russian front by his subordinates;  the fact that there was a trial, proved that Hitler's guilt was not self evident.

"His crime it is implied was not to build up an army for the purpose of aggressive war, but to instruct that army to torture prisoners".

I will conclude with Orwell's own conclusion from December 1943:

" Nevertheless, a world in which it is wrong to murder an individual civilian and right to drop a thousand tons of high explosive on a residential area does sometime make me wonder whether this earth of ours is not a loony-bin made use of by some other planet".

British Justice Hits A New Low - Victims Sacrificed On The Altar Of Progressivism

It is understandable how just a cursory glance at the daily newspapers is enough to make the blood of the calmest people boil with rage. Some of the headlines highlight outrageous stories that demonstrate the yawning chasm between the ruling establishment and the people they are elected to represent.

Free thinking bloggers are lucky in that they can remain calm and use their ability to wipe away the cobwebs of spin and deceit to get at the real motives of the people behind the headlines.

It is now an established fact that the political class across the Anglosphere, together with their attendant bureaucracies, are imposing a transformational "progressive" agenda at the behest of the UN/EU supranational cabal. This agenda is against the expressed wishes of the people they are supposed to be representing.

In Great Britain, it is also an established fact that all parts of the establishment have been stuffed to gunwales with like minded cronies who serve as the governments storm troopers in imposing this agenda, this includes demographic and cultural replacement.

There is no bigger part of the establishment that demonstrates this more than the bewigged, gin soaked imbeciles that masquerade as judges. They preside over a criminal justice system that is so corrupted by 'progressivism' that applying the law and establishing justice has been abandoned in favour of implementing their perverted agenda.

In the twisted minds of the 'progressives', criminals are deemed not to be bad people who do not act with malice aforethought; instead they are deemed to have been created by an uncaring society which does not pay enough attention to the wants and needs of some of their fellow citizens.

'Progressives' also believe that the British people's imperialist past is to blame for all the ills in the world and therefore they must be ethnically cleansed in order to prevent a possible repeat of their civilizing past.

They have also decided that the term 'ethnic cleansing' has too many negative connotations, therefore they use the more politically correct term, 'de-homogenising'.

This policy is continuing at a rapid pace and the latest figures show that the indigenous population are already a minority in Great Britain's largest cities, while the entire country will be past the tipping point by the year 2030.

It is safe to assume that as the political class and the establishment are aware of this fact, and because they are not taking any steps whatsoever to prevent it, they must agree with the policy of ethnic cleansing, de-homogenizing, cultural replacement or whatever fancy name they choose to call it.

Some of the bizarre judgments and sentences handed down by these misnamed guardians of justice reflect the fact that they are applying the law selectively to suit their agenda with an enthusiasm that exposes their own purpose.

The case of Lucy Walsh is a harrowing example of criminals getting preferential treatment while the victim and her family are studiously ignored. It also a clear demonstration of how low the British criminal justice system will sink in pursuit of its 'progressive' agenda.

Lucy was kidnapped then stripped, beaten and gang raped multiple times by three illegal Kurdish immigrants; they laughed among themselves as she cried out in pain. After they had finished their brutal attack, Lucy was dragged down the stairs by her hair and unceremoniously thrown into street.

Her internal injuries were so sever it was a full four days before she could be given a proper medical examination. Two of these savages were caught and the third is still on the run.

Any person who possesses even a minutest sense of justice would agree that hanging is too good for these sub-humans, but this is 'progressive' Britain, where immigrants have exalted status and the perpetrators of crime are the victims of society.

They were given indeterminate sentences but to an activist judge, who puts his 'progressive' agenda before justice or the victim's trauma, this was deemed to be too severe. He reduced their sentences on appeal to twelve years in the full knowledge they will out in six.

To add insult to injury, and to demonstrate the exalted status given to illegal immigrants, one of the savages was granted British citizenship while in prison awaiting trial.

Lucy and her family have expressed their disgust and lack of faith with the criminal justice system, while Lucy herself has emigrated for fear that the remaining rapist will track her down.

In another case, a gang of thugs severely beat and robbed a veteran of the Afghan war and this also serves to demonstrate how lenient 'progressive' judges are when dealing with people they deem to be 'victims of society'.

Five young thugs beat a soldier and continued to beat him until he was unconscious on the ground. The hero suffered multiple injuries including broken ribs and a damaged kidney.

The headline reads that the cowardly thugs were sentenced to twelve years in prison, but closer reading reveals that it was twelve years total for all of them, as opposed to twelve years each. Some of these thugs will be free in less than a year.

The case of triple killer Ian McLoughlin is a shocking example of judges putting 'progressive' politics before the interests of the people. This animal was originally jailed for killing his friend with a hammer. He was released and murdered a father of three, after which he was given a 'life' sentence.

While out on day release from this supposed 'life' sentence, he murdered a sixty six year old pensioner who caught him robbing his eighty six year old neighbor.

The presiding judge was unable to give McLoughlin a life sentence because, apparently, the unelected bureaucrats in EU deemed that this would be the killer.

Many consider these absurd rulings to be advisory and they are continually ignored by other EU countries. It would appear that British activist judges are only too happy to comply with their fellow 'progressives' from across the English Channel.

Before concluding, it's worth returning to the issue of politically active 'progressive' judges, legal and illegal immigrants and their own attitude to the long suffering British people.

Joland Giwa is a violent gang leader who arrived from Lagos in 1999 and claimed asylum; instead of being grateful to the British people for saving him from a miserable life in oil rich Nigeria, he embarked on a criminal career and was in trouble with the police by 2002. Despite this criminality, in act of contempt for the British people and in complete disregard for their safety, he was given 'leave to remain' in the country. This enabled him to continue his violent criminal career and he was subsequently jailed for robbery.

His deportation has been delayed by doubts about his country of origin and a judge has ordered that he be released onto the streets regardless of the police warning that Giwa "is a serious threat to the public with a clear propensity for violence".

The option of detaining him "at Her Majesty's Pleasure" has long been given up in favour of giving immigrants 'leave to remain' no matter how heinous their crime.  So as the option of putting him on a Nigeria Airlines flight back to Lagos from whence he came.

The case of Algerian immigrant, Aziz Lamari, is final proof, if any were needed, that British judges are either from another planet or they have total disregard for the British people while in pursuit of their political agenda.

Aziz Lamari arrived on British shores from the former French colony of Algeria and claimed asylum. Like Giwa before him, instead showing gratitude to the British people he rewarded their kindness by embarking on criminal career. He didn't waste any time and was jailed the following year for robbery.

Deportation proceedings were started but it turned out that Lamari was detained for twenty three days extra. He subsequently returned to Algeria but someone, somewhere, decided that he had been treated abominably and therefore deserves compensation from the British taxpayer, who's generosity he abused.

Instead of throwing the case out of court and saving the taxpayer some hard earned money, the judge agreed that the extra twenty three days in jail was the cause of mental problems for the poor soul and awarded the Algerian criminal $40,000 of taxpayer money. 

The pain and suffering of Lamari's victims or the much abused British people were obviously not a consideration for this so called defender of justice.

The question the British people need an urgent answer for is this: After his return to Algeria why wasn't this criminal just forgotten about? The case should have been over when he fastened his seat belt on the flight back to his homeland.

In conclusion it must be noted that there are almost four thousand foreign murderers, rapists and other criminals on the streets of Great Britain, including eight hundred who have been free for five years or more, because the judges will not allow the pathetically weak politicians to deport them.

It should come as no surprise as to who is picking up the tab for this nonsense, a tab which doesn't include the $88 million that it costs to keep fifteen hundred criminals in prison 'beyond their sentence' while awaiting deportation.

Reading though this, it is obvious that the political class, together their establishment, are more interested in showing off their 'progressive' credentials to the international elite that are blighting the lives of the British people, than doing the job that they are paid to do.

Massive EU Corruption Exposed - Taxpayers Robbed, No Arrests, Political Crooks Go Free

There is a glaring double standard in the law enforcement and the criminal justice communities when it comes to embezzlement of public money.  On the one hand the Director of Public Prosecutions is calling for tougher prison sentences for those who claim taxpayer funded welfare benefits that they are not entitled to, while on the other hand he is silent about the billions of taxpayer money that has disappeared from the European Union Treasury.

For the nineteenth consecutive year the auditors have refused to sign off the EU accounts due to irregularities and unaccountable spending.  In the real world outside the remote political elite, heads would have rolled, jobs would have been lost and the guilty parties would be taking care not to drop the soap in the prison showers.

Politicians and their attendant armies of career bureaucrats, never have to live by the same rules and regulations that they legislate for the rest of the people to live by.  In the case of the European Union they are getting away unpunished with corruption on such a massive scale it makes Nigeria look like a paragon of probity.

The latest audit of the EU finances is so shocking it should be mandatory reading for every taxpayer across the continent.  Nine point six billion USD of taxpayer money disappeared on fraudulent, illegal and ineligible spending projects.  That is an incredible five percent of the total EU budget.

The EU Department for Foreign Affairs and Security, which is run by the unelected, professional bureaucrat, Baroness Ashton, had an error rate of over three percent or $270,000,000 out of an $8 billion budget.

A good example of the endemic waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer money is the $22,400,000 that was spent on support for female teachers in rural Bangladesh;  half of it was handed over with no documentation.  In other words it was stolen.  Surely the person responsible for handing over this money can be traced and prosecuted.  If not, then Ashton herself should be held responsible and relieved of her post, together with her gold plated, taxpayer funded pension.

Incidentally, this particular example of corruption raises two points:

a) I can't imagine there being many female teachers in Muslim dominated rural Bangladesh, what was the money allocated for and where did it go?

b) Why is British taxpayer money being given to female teachers in rural Bangladesh when they already pay a Kings ransom in development aid through their own foreign aid programme?

The British taxpayers alone are liable for $1.3 billion to cover this EU theft and corruption.

It has become a painful reality for the hard pressed taxpayers of Great Britain and Europe that there is an insatiable appetite for their money by the EU politicians and their army of professional bureaucrats.  Even bankrupt countries such as Greece, Ireland, Italy and Spain are being asked for increased contributions year on year.

Despite annual increases in the EU budget, they still overspend and go on to demand additional cash to cover the shortfall.  The politicians and bureaucrats call it a budget amendment, whereas most people would call it additional theft.

One would have thought that this being the nineteenth consecutive failed audit, the error rate would decrease as the criminals and fraudsters were rooted out and prosecuted, but alas no, to their eternal shame the error rate has increased by a an incredible twenty three percent.

This tells us that criminal behavior and corruption within the EU is increasing at an alarming rate as more and more politicians and bureaucrats get their hands on taxpayer money.  It also tells us that criminals and fraudsters have been stealing from EU taxpayers with impunity for almost two decades.

Criminality on this scale in any other walk of life would have been relentlessly pursued and the perpetrators brought to justice.  One cannot imagine any business, big or small getting away with looting their own private money, let alone taxpayers money, on such a scale and free of any consequences to boot.

It must be noted that while no corrupt official or criminal bureaucrat has been prosecuted for this monumental theft of taxpayer money, one hundred and thirty thousand (130,000) British citizens were prosecuted last year for having the temerity to watch television without a licence.

It remains painfully obvious that the EU leadership have no intention of investigating, let alone eliminating, this corruption and criminal behavior.  The Belgian totalitarian and unelected EU President, Herman von Rompuy, demonstrates his contempt for the taxpayer and the rule of law by failing to tackle this criminal behavior; instead he orders the auditors to tone down their criticism of EU spending to avoid negative press coverage and to promote a positive image of the EU.

As for the long suffering British people, the majority of whom want out of this criminal enterprise, their PR trained Prime Minister, David Cameron, a self confessed Europhile, is going to re-negotiate the terms of membership and secure them a better deal.

To this end he has appointed Ivan Rogers, a professional bureaucrat and fanatical supporter of the United States of Europe, to represent Great Britain in Europe. (Cameron obviously thinks no one will notice this appointment).

As for the British people who are trying to wrest control of their country back from the corrupt cabal of Brussels bureaucrats, Herman von Rompuy and his sidekick Jose Manuel Barrosso, have sounded a second warning.  On the first occasion they threatened war but this engendered a 'bring it on' response from the people; they are now warning the British people that they will pay financially for their freedom.

These two people more than anyone, are responsible for one of the biggest criminal enterprises on the planet and it doesn't behold a British Prime Minister to be tugging a forelock let alone groveling on his knees to these crooks.

By doing nothing to bring the criminals in the EU to justice and by handing over more taxpayer money every year, David 'Vichy' Cameron, together with his cronies, are accessories to these crimes against the British people.

When the day of reckoning comes and they are called to answer for their actions before the courts and the people, these crimes will be added to the crime of treason which they have clearly committed; and for the misery they have caused millions of people, I hope they are shown no mercy.

Update: Here is the best example yet of the EU flushing taxpayers money down the toilet.

Welfare And Sham Marriage - They Go Together Like A Horse And Carriage



While the salaries, pensions and savings of the British people are continuing to shrink, one thing that never seems to shrink is the number of people rolling up to claim their welfare 'entitlements'. Whether they are legally entitled to other peoples money doesn't appear to bother their conscience in the slightest.

It doesn't seem to bother the collective conscience of Great Britain's inexperienced Prime Minister, David Cameron either or his equally inexperienced cronies in government.  But then again, when cultural replacement via open border mass immigration is the 'unofficial', official policy why should they care, they are achieving what they set out to do.

It goes without saying that Great Britain's welfare system is one of the most generous on planet.  It also goes without saying that it's purpose has been deliberately changed from a safety net, paid for by the sweat and toil of the British people, to a free for all for anyone who can sneak through the intentionally porous borders.

The then unelected President of the European Union, Herman von Rompuy, ordered David Cameron to make sure the British people's welfare 'entitlements' remain available to all EU citizens and illegal immigrants alike. This was to include the vilest of criminals, who cannot be deported under the EU's pernicious Human Rights law.

The rule of thumb for welfare colonists is this; once you have evaded the half asleep border guards, you've made it, you are in, and the chances are that you are in for good, then it's a free for all with British taxpayers money.

As a form of insurance, the illegal immigrant should knock up a local girl and father a child; that child will then act as an anchor baby.  Since the deliberate moral degradation of Great Britain there are plenty of willing old slappers who are only too happy to bear a child just for the extra child benefit allowance and the chance of a bigger council house.

Before the disastrous Blair government threw open the borders to all and sundry, getting access to the British peoples welfare entitlements was a tad more difficult.  Prospective economic migrants and welfare colonists would indulge in sham marriages with British women for a fee.  Once the marriage documents were secured, the couple separated and the immigrant disappeared into the underclass to carry on their chosen way of life, often criminal, financed by the British taxpayer.

These sham marriages were a trickle that turned into a raging flood after the Tony Blair government opened up the British people's welfare safety net to EU citizens.  When these are added to the child bride scandal of the Asian communities, marriage has become the access key to the British peoples welfare system for hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of foreign people who have not paid into the system.

The child bride scandal involves young girls who hold British passports, being forced to marry older males, often relatives, from their ancestral village back in the home country; this entitles a whole new group of relatives to relocate to Great Britain and climb aboard the welfare gravy train.

The issue of sham marriages and the access of immigrants to welfare, and to all the other social services for that matter, became one of the biggest concerns of the British people.  These concerns would normally be studiously ignored by the political class but because they were having a negative effect on Cameron's re-election chances, he decided to make a few promises that he had no intention of keeping.

In October 2011 David Cameron announced he was listening to the British people and as a result he was going to tackle the issues and make it more difficult for sham and forced marriages to succeed as a gateway to the welfare system.

Cameron cited the example of a Pakistani man who obtained a spousal visa when he married a compatriot who had settled in Great Britain.  Once the visa was obtained he divorced the wife, returned to Pakistan where he remarried then applied for entry for his new spouse and her family.
(Story here)

This kind of abuse has been going on for decades and ignored by governments of all colours, therefore it should be apparent to all and sundry that he has been forced to act only because the issue was negatively affecting his re-election chances.

It must be reiterated that David Cameron is a career politician with absolutely no experience in the real world.  After a couple of years as a Public Relations executive for a failed television company he moved into party politics.

Apparently he was spotted as a potential leader while at University and groomed thereafter for leadership. Spotted and groomed by who is a mystery.  Whatever skills Cameron possessed after his 'grooming', it is obvious that telling the truth to the people wasn't one of them.  He is a consummate spinner, deceiver and outright liar.  Like Blair before him, everything he says has been calculated for the sole purpose of gaining political advantage.

Cameron announced his plan in October 2011; in October 2013 the situation is much worse.  One in five marriages are a sham and twenty percent of urban marriages are bogus.  Bearing in mind that legislation to deal with bogus marriages was first introduced in 2004, it is obvious that governments are not serious about ending it.
(Story here)

Previously, prospective economic migrants and welfare colonists had to find or bribe a British lady in order to gain access to the welfare gravy train; since the EU has ordered Cameron to keep the system available to all EU citizens this is no longer a requirement.

We now have a  Pakistani man marrying a Czech woman and a Pakistani man marrying a Latvian woman to gain access to the British peoples welfare system.
(Story here)

Then there is the Sri Lankan man marrying an Italian woman for the same reason.
(Story here)

In clear demonstration of the governments contempt for its own people, the men were detained for possible deportation, which experience tells us won't happen, and the women were released without charge. These attempts to defraud the taxpayer were premeditated crimes against the British people and they went unpunished.

The government now has a plan to introduce a small charge if foreigners use the British people's National Health Service but experts have issued warning that this will open the floodgates to criminal gangs.
(Story here)

These gangs already fly pregnant women from Africa to have their babies on the NHS. This is now such a big business it has been named 'the Lagos Shuttle' by health service staff.
(Story here)

If the government cannot put a stop to this flagrant abuse and govern in the interests of the British people, then this raises several important questions:

a) These are career politicians and bureaucrats, does their inexperience translate into incompetence?

b) Have they surrendered so much sovereignty to the European Union and the United Nations that they no longer have enough power to govern Great Britain in the interests of its people?

c) Are they consciously imposing an agenda dictated by these two foreign institutions?

d) Does this agenda include cultural replacement in Great Britain? (This is called de-homogenizing in UN/EU jargon)

Looking at the actions of the political class and their attendant army of career bureaucrats, the answer to all four questions is a resounding 'Yes' demonstrating once and for all that whatever they say, the politicians have no intention of ending welfare colonization or economic migration in general.

Update: Muslims can claim welfare benefits for four wives.

Spending Cuts? - It's All Lies, Great Britian Is Awash With Money

I have a vivid memory from when I was a kid growing up in the late fifties; all the women in the village, and the surrounding villages for that matter, were in a panic because the price of bread, milk or some other staple food was increasing by a half penny or a penny per item.

The repercussions were enormous and they engendered all kinds of responses as a result.  The women banded together to form knitting and sewing circles to recycle worn out clothes, the men went begging to the bosses for any overtime down the pit, we all went searching the local woods for kindling and some of the worse off were reduced to picking the slag heaps for little pieces of coal to keep warm, which was illegal.

As a very last resort, food rations had to be cut and luxuries such as the Friday bottle of pop and cream cake was changed to every other Friday before being dropped altogether. (This is probably why its stuck in my mind all these years).  Similarly, plans for new spending were postponed then dropped altogether; no new shoes for school, no new clothes for anyone at all.

At this moment in time, the nation is being told that the whole country is broke because the last government spent all the money and the new government is being forced to make economies in order to ward off bankruptcy and to deal with an unsustainable national debt.

When the fog of spin, deceit and outright lies have cleared, the economies they are referring to amount to a small decrease in the rise in spending with no decrease at all in the national debt which will be at record levels when the next election comes around in 2015.

Unlike the ladies in the village,  the lack of money has not altered the spending habits of the political class at all, they carry on regardless, with impunity and without a care for the damage they are doing to future generations.

The whole disaster began with Phony Tony Blair and his sidekick Gordon Brown.  When they were booted out of office their irresponsible ways were carried on by the current 'progressive' Liberal- Conservative coalition led by a PR Executive from the defunct Carlton Television company, David Cameron.

In addition to doubling foreign aid to tyrannies abroad to $22 billion, they are still wasting billions on health tourism, welfare benefits for those that have not paid in and expenses for themselves. Then there is $110 billion in unearned tax credits and $96,000,000 per day to the EU bureaucrats but I digress.

The inexperience of these politicians shines like a beacon even on a sunny day.  Only politicians could order two aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy that are unable to use aircraft.  If that's not bad enough the costs have doubled and the delivery date put back yet again.  These two carriers will not be fully functional until 2020.

The contract was agreed in 2007 at a cost of  $5.8 billion; which has risen to $9.9 billion today.  This price does not include the 48 aircraft which aren't going to be cheap.  Thirteen years will have elapsed and an extra $4.1 billion will have been spent before the navy gets its carriers.  The Royal Navy currently has a single aircraft carrier which itself cannot deploy strike aircraft and uses helicopters only.

If the aircraft carrier debacle wasn't bad enough then the NHS computer disaster not only brings their incompetence to the fore, it also demonstrates their total lack of respect for the taxpayers and their hard earned money.

The new NHS computer system was going to revolutionise health care and save the taxpayer money.  If the taxpayer was under the impression they would get better health care and a tax rebate then they are not paying attention, nor are they looking at the historical record of politicians with regard to big capital projects.

The contract was commissioned in 2002 at a cost of $10.2 billion.  It is, or has been, abandoned some eleven years later at a cost of $20.3 billion and rising.  This failed system cost more than the Iraq military campaign.

One of biggest scandals in the history of national finances is the Public Private Initiatives (PPI's) These PPI's are an accounting trick used by politicians to spend hundreds of billions of taxpayers money without it appearing on the balance sheet;  they really are a total disaster for the nation and generations yet unborn, who will be left to pick up the bill.  The sheer size of this disaster has to be read to be believed but to give an idea of scale, the following are a couple of examples. A Coventry Hospital planned a $48,000,000 refurbishment but after government arm twisting they accepted a complete rebuild costing an eye watering $656,000,000.

Widening the M25 motorway went from a $767,800,000 project to an $8 billion project under PPI.  In total the government agreed $108 billion of PPI contracts in 2007 but are committed to paying a staggering $427.2 billion over the lifetime of the contracts.

One would think that the government would have learned their lesson, and more to the point, one would have thought that people would have learned not to trust these proven incompetents with their hard earned money.  Unfortunately this is not so.

The government wants to spend a shedload of taxpayers money on a High Speed railway link between London and Birmingham.  These career politicians and their spin doctors are claiming that the project itself, together with the decrease in travel time of fifteen minutes (15 minutes), will rejuvenate the entire economy of Northern England and decrease inequality with Southern England.

The original estimate in 2010 was for $52.8 billion.  The current estimate stands at $68.8 billion and experts are the forecasting a final costs of $128 billion.  The question for the people is.. who do you trust, the politicians or the experts?

These are staggering sums of money for the politicians and their bureaucrats to be spending, especially with their record of incompetence and mismanagement.

It is comforting to know that the Chief Secretary of the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has promised that the project will be delivered on time and under budget.  That comfort however must be tempered with the knowledge that Alexander is a professional politician from the Public Relations world.

In line with the current British political leadership, Alexander, completed the mandatory Politics, Philosophy and Economics degree at Oxford University.  From there he became press secretary for the Scottish Liberals, then a Public Relations wallah for a pro European Union pressure group, finally becoming the Head of Communications for the Cairngorms Nation Park in Scotland before entering Parliament.

He has no business experience whatsoever or any experience at all outside of public relations and party politics.  He has also not committed himself to be held responsible if the project is not delivered on time or under the $68 billion budget.  There will be no jail time for Alexander because politicians are never held accountable or made to pay the price for their incompetence.

While politicians continue to waste hundreds of billions of taxpayers money, bankrupting the country and committing future generations to high taxation to pay off the unsustainable debt that they have created, the Director of Public Prosecutions is calling for bigger prison sentences for welfare benefit cheats.

The government are spinning that falsely claiming welfare benefits is not a victimless crime and the
$3 billion embezzled last year is money that could have been spent on essential services.  I would suggest that politicians and bureaucrats be held accountable for the billions they waste year after year and be jailed accordingly then banned from holding public office for life.

Managed Decline - The Deliberate Transfer Of British Jobs Abroad

No one should be under any illusion that the decline of British industry began before the political class signed the Lima Declaration and committed Great Britain to a net transfer of technology, capital assets and entire industries abroad.

This post is intended to follow up and expand on yesterdays post about the United Nations stated goal of creating a New International Economic Order by centrally controlling international industry accompanied by a global redistribution of wealth.

The history of Great Britains spectacular industrial rise and even more spectacular fall raises several issues, the main issue being as how can a country that started the industrial revolution, that used its industrial might to rule three quarters of the worlds surface, then be reduced to virtual penury in no more than half a century.

The history of British industry is too enormous to go into too much detail here but to illustrate the point, a brief history with conclusions is required.

The industries that kicked off the rise of Great Britain as a global phenomenon were agriculture, ship building and fishing.  Apart from ship building the other two were eclipsed when advancement in iron and steel technology engendered an explosion in transportation infrastructure.

Canals, roads, bridges, tunnels, railways were constructed at home and abroad; the ingenuity of Victorian engineers knew no bounds and the results of their genius can still be seen today in infrastructure and follow up technology all over the planet.

Nineteenth and twentieth century world-beating British industry evolved from their genius, and the free market system, into the manufacture of ships, aircraft, motorcycles, automobiles, railway rolling stock, military hardware etc. etc.

Just a cursory look at Great Britain today will reveal that the industrial base has all but disappeared and along with it, millions of jobs.

The industrial revolution started in earnest with the iron and steel industry.  This was its backbone. The British steel industry has all but disappeared and what is left is foreign owned, mostly by the Indian conglomerate Tata.

Great Britain is nowhere to be found on the current list of the worlds steel makers; a list dominated by China which was nothing more than a deadbeat communist hellhole populated by illiterate rural peasants less than four decades ago.

The labour intensive shipbuilding industry has all but disappeared also, with Great Britain nowhere to be seen on the current list of global shipbuilders, which again is dominated by China.

So it is with the aircraft manufacturing industry, where British genius and expertise gave the world the jet engine, vertical take off, autoland, supersonic technology and the majority of its highly paid, high technology jobs.

The British car manufacturing industry is all but gone and what is left is foreign owned. How an industry that produces high quality products such as Rolls Royce and the Land Rover can only survive with foreign ownership, including India, is a mystery.

The list goes on, therefore I will conclude this section with the once proud and innovative British motorcycle industry which is gone.

Outside of manufacturing, it is worth noting that in a country that houses the financial capitol of the world, one of Great Britain's biggest banks, Santander, is owned by bankrupt Spain; an EU member country which is on the verge of financial collapse and civil strife due to high unemployment,  including youth unemployment approaching fifty percent.

It must be asked how a bankrupt country such as Spain can take control of Great Britain's major airports and one of the top six energy suppliers, the other major energy suppliers being foreign owned.

It must also be asked how Bombardier,  British manufacturer of railway rolling stock, (albeit Canadian owned) was prevented by the government from tendering for a rolling stock contract for a British railway, in favour of a German company.

During the writing of this post I have read many explanations for the decline of British industry, including:

Out of touch management too set in their ways and unable to adapt to a changing world.

Politically motivated Trade Union militancy negatively affecting competitiveness.

Socialist politicians interfering in the free market.

All are worthy of consideration and it is highly likely that these played a part in the demise: looking at the sheer size and speed of the decline, the role of UNIDO and the Lima Declaration combined with a political elite dedicated to imposing a global 'progressive' agenda must also be considered.

Judging by the behavior of modern politicians such as Blair, Brown and Cameron, it is the opinion of many that this is the most likely explanation.  Having finished their careers as domestic politicians, they are now busy pushing their agenda on the international stage while filling their personal coffers at the same time.

Whatever the explanation is, what is certain is that the people have been sold out, lock, stock and barrel by their own representatives with the sole aim of furthering their 'progressive' global agenda. This has, and will always take,  a higher priority than the interests Great Britain and its people.
