Atheist Clegg Sending Kids to Blair’s Catholic Oratory

The Mail asks on the front page: Why is atheist Nick Clegg considering sending his son to the same exclusive Catholic school as the Blairs? Could it be because the children are being brought up as Catholics? Clegg might be Godless but his wife is not.

Normally the non-Catholic partner agrees, at the request of the priest, to let the Catholic partner bring up the children in the faith if they are being married in a Catholic church. Hypocritical? Perhaps. He would however have likely been breaking his word to have done otherwise…

            Let’s be clear this is not about faith, it is about getting a good education for his children like Harman and Blair because the state schools are sh1t. The politicians failed us all by spending huge sums of tax on state schools and they are still sh1t.

            They took away the authority of teachers and reduced the standards of teaching by the liberal environment they created. That is why so many teachers left teaching and we are left with a lot of poorly qualified teachers who are not very well educated themselves. Balls presided over the Education Department when police officers started to patrol some schools as their beat- not community relations but their beat. What does this tell you about state schools when a police officer patrols the school site to keep order because the teachers can’t. Fcking disgraceful. Balls ought to remember his legacy before he rants about Gove- albeit he and Willetts are clueless fcks.

            Faith schools should not exist, children go to school to learn the three Rs, faith should be taught outside school according to the faith the family want to pursue. Again, this is about politicians feathering their own nest because they do not want to be politically seen to send their children to private schools, so they allow faith schools to educate their own children without being held to account for their double standards. Harman did this with the education of her children (and her husband’s appointment to become an MP), the bitch needs to be ousted from public office and Blair needs to be prosecuted for war crimes and lining his pockets so his children can live in multi millon pound homes at the cost of the tax payer and the deaths of so many soldiers. Bad Al and Straw’s children have also done well from the double standards they impose on the rest of us. Write to your MP to get rid of faith schools.

            Disaffected: I couldn’t agree more! It’s high time that the State gave back the well-functioning Educational system it took from the Church in 1944+ – Schools, teacher-training Colleges, and all. As usual, ‘the State’ has proved a very unreliable guardian of a once-excellent system. And, while about it, let the State return to the Charitable bodies (principally the Church) the well-functioning Health-system it nationalised in 1948… and the Adoption-agencies, etc., etc..

          You know what’s boneheaded? Teaching kids nonsense, like the existence of the supernatural. The education system should be totally secular. Oh, and Clegg is most likely sending his kids to the LO for the same reason as the majority of parents: so they can get fast-tracked to Oxbridge. If faith schools didn’t have exclusivist selection criteria, he wouldn’t need to.

        It’s bad enough that they are taught such things at home and church by their parents and priests without having the state stick its odious oar in to tell them things that are patently untrue.

        PS. Guido, how does Jesus taste these days? Should all kids be taught that cannibalism is OK if you believe that the person you are eating is the son of god? Transubstantiation is not symbolic to the Catholic Church.

            So a bit of sarcasm is uncontrolled anger, but the hiding of paedophile priests by an organisation is hunky-dory?

            Sorry, but all criticism levelled at the Catholic Church and its intentionally ignorant defenders is justified.

            When I speak to Catholics who think Communion is symbolic or that Jesus did not die for our sins or the sins of our forefathers (Adam specifically) or that the Pope is infallible on certain issues then it makes me wonder on what grounds are they claiming to be Catholics? Why do they defend an institution that promotes cannibalism, scapegoating (vicarious redemption) and eternal puishment? Not to mention one that hides criminals because revealing them to secular authorities would look bad for Mother Church.

            So I ask you, is my sarcasm directed towards this institution really unjustified? Is it so severe that you can call it anger? Or was it a gentle jibe at one of its defenders, who likely does not understand the entirety of what he is defending?

        Still Fawkes, amusing isn’t it. Miriam has Nick’s Cojones in her expensive handbag.

        When I got wed in the CoE church, I took the precaution (perhaps the only legally Catholic precaution…) of getting epispocal dipensation, so the Catholic Church would recognise my marriage if I wanted to have a kid and sent it to a RC school.

        As it was, I married one of the damaged toffs who in previous times would have been sent to live quietly with her dog in Granny’s cottage….bit I digress.

        You might also remember a similar kick-off between Jeremy Corbin and his Hispanic Missus in 1999….

        “Earlier this month, Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn and his wife, Claudia Bracchitta, were forced to reveal that, despite a disagreement over their eldest son’s schooling which contributed to their marriage breakdown, they still lived under the same roof for the sake of their children.”

        The disagreement was that Miss B wanted to send her son to a private school.

        Modern Hispanic birds are real ball-breakers – a reaction to the ways their mothers were treated. Cleggy knows all about it.

Let Clegg’s offspring go to another less-favoured Catholic school.

        The hypocrisy he should be called out on is his spouting about social mobility while quickly grabbing the goodies for his own children and excluding the children of some other, poorer, Catholic.

        Our own secretly-totalitarian state is much smarter than that.

        It recognises that anyone who has undergone the early-days brainwashing at a faith school will be self-identified as susceptible to whatever future brainwashing the state wants to impart, hence all our potential governing parties support faith schools.

        If schools were entirely secular, all pupils would be free to form their own opinions of faiths – and because it’s all fairy-tale bollocks, the smart kids would spot it and be immune from any future ‘messages’ from Big Brother State, and that’s not a good idea if you’re the one in charge.

        But it may be only a short time before the new standard ‘Euro-faith’ religion is imposed throughout the EU, sweeping away all those old myths of Christianity, Islam, Judaism etc, replacing them with a single mandatory and mindless belief in all things Brussels, paying homage to God Von Rumpoy and his prodigal son, Mandelson……..

    Fucking Alan Johnson did a backdoor amnesty deal of over 250,000 asylum seekers to clear a backlog of 450,000. As a precedent has been set they are being granted permanent residency at a rate of 3,000 per week… and there is nothing Theresa May can do.

    “May is powerless to stop the programme as lawyers say it has created a precedent that could be used to launch a wave of legal actions from any asylum seekers who are now refused residency.

    Granting permanent residence is a precursor to full citizenship and entitles immigrants to full benefits. The decision is racking up massive future liabilities for taxpayers as each new permanent resident and their family can pick up between £500,000 and £1m in lifetime benefits.”

    It’s all in the Sunday Times. Our country is over. RIP Great Britain.

    Why do you trust Nick Clegg when he claims to be an atheist?

    I don’t.

    True atheism is for the profane. There is not, and never has been a politician even slightly running any part of this entire planet who is a true atheist. ALL roads, especially ones lined with despotic power and avarice, lead to ROME. Tony Blair knew this, which is a large part of the reason why he is where he is, and you are where you are. Although I am not sure I would like to go where TB could very well be going. Which could be back here for yet another go at becoming a fully conscious Human Being.

    We all have a spiritual SELF, what is more we all know that we do to a greater or lesser extent. God is very likely not a grey haired old man distributing thunderbolts while sitting on fluffy white clouds. Human beings are the Temple of universal spiritual consciousness. We are potential perfection, deliberately and long since historically mislead by organized religion, and the dark forces that have always controlled it, as far away from out true SELF, as they can possibly take us.

    Is there anyone out there that honestly believes we are all simply and wholly a highly evolved piece of green slime with no connection with, or modification from ANY extra terrestrial sources whatsoever?

    Look out of the window, and then in the mirror. Do you really believe everything you see is the product of some kind of elaborate accident. Surely not, however much your lazy thinking may sometimes make you wish you were.

    If so, then may I suggest you borrow as much cash as possible, and then buy as many lottery tickets as you can. For with luck like yours, every one of them will undoubtedly turn out to be a jackpot winner.

    Dave’s “Big Society” / “Country Needs You”

    Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed last night lost a legal bid to prevent The Mail on Sunday from revealing that he has been granted permanent residency in Britain.

    The controversial move by the former UK asylum seeker came despite his continued involvement in a series of high-profile legal battles with the Government, claiming that Labour Ministers, MI5 and MI6 were complicit in his illegal detention and alleged torture.

    Last night lawyers acting for Ethiopian-born Mr Mohamed,
    32, failed to win a High Court injunction preventing the public from knowing that he had been granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
    The extraordinary case was brought under Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which covers torture.
    Mr Mohamed’s lawyers claimed that publicising his right to remain in Britain would amount to inhumane and degrading treatment.

    The case comes amid increasing disquiet about the growing practice of allowing asylum seekers to remain anonymous when they argue that they should be allowed to make the UK their permanent home.

    Earlier this year the Supreme Court warned against the now ‘widespread phenomenon’ that had allowed many foreign applicants anonymity in immigration cases, including those involving alleged terrorist activities.

      Don’t stereotype. In the 1970’s Leicester had a large influx of Asians kicked out of Uganda by Idi Amin……these people were not from the sub-continent or poorly educated but the entrepreneurs;shopkeepers and well-educated professional class who ran that country.They were hardworking and get ahead and totally re-vitalised a dying city to make it become the vibrant, comparatively affluent multi-cultural place it is to-day AND what’s more Leicester avoided the problems of integration,apart from a very few incidents in the 1980’s,that other parts of the UK did such as Bradford. Indeed the Asian Community has produced Councillors and several Lord Mayors over the years and have re-generated areas of the city that would have been slums if left to the indigenous population or council like other parts of the Midlands

            That’s a totally different argument.My elderly parents wouldn’t want o go anywhere at night in Leicester City Centre either but that applies to most city/town centres at night anywhere in the country due mainly to the culture of binge drinking that’s grown up in the Uk over the past 20 odd years but it’s not the asian community that are the offenders I think you’ll find.

            Equally I live in a Market Town in Leicestershire which during the day is extremely pleasant and a magnet for tourists but after 9pm or on Friday/Saturday nights you wouldn’t want to go there mainly due to the number of bars etc in the town. But that doesn’t negate my original point about the influx of Asians into the City during the 1970’s and generally that section of the community is more law-abinding than the “white indigenous yobbish element”

    David Cameron and George Osborne were the guests of honour at a lavish £25,000 party – just hours before they unveiled savage spending cuts.

    The Prime Minister and Chancellor joined more than 60 senior T-ories at one of Britain’s top restaurants for the exclusive event.

    Billionaire financier Michael Spencer hosted and paid for the “thank you” bash at the Michelin-starred Simpsons restaurant in Birmingham on Monday night as he stood down after four years as T-ory Party treasurer.

    His guests enjoyed a four-course meal washed down with champagne and up to 24 bottles of Pétrus – dubbed “the most expensive wine in the world”.

    The next morning Mr Osborne hammered home his “we’re all in this together” message at the T-ory conference – confirming his plans to axe child benefit payments to 1.2million families

        They are in stark contrast to the “difficult” times and big job cuts outlined in Mr Cameron’s conference speech in Birmingham on Wednesday.

        Just down the road from the spotlight of the conference centre in the leafy suburb of Edgbaston, guests enjoyed £10-a-head canapés and bubbly.

        Then they sat down to a £70-per-head meal, starting with salmon, followed by a goats’ cheese tartlet, a main course of a pan-fried fillet of beef, with raspberry brûlée ­dessert to finish.

        Mr Spencer, a major T-ory donor and close friend of the Premier, laid on the Pétrus from his private cellar – which usually sells for around £1,500 per bottle.

        His guests enjoyed up to 36 ­bottles of £145-a-bottle Dom Pérignon.

        They also quaffed up to 36 bottles of Chalumeaux, a white Chardonnay ­costing £80, and up to 24 bottles of Château Filhot, a white wine which cost Mr Spencer £120 per bottle.

        Although Mr Spencer supplied the Petrus, the restaurant charged £720 for “corkage”, the fee for opening and ­serving the bottles of wine brought in by diners.

        He also laid on a marquee, costing an estimated £3,000, on the restaurant’s lawned garden, lit with intricate crystal lanterns.

        The total drinks bill for the event for around 65 people came to just under £14,000. The food cost about £5,200 and the service charge was more than £2,000.

        The total bill came to around £25,000 – the same as a nurse’s salary for a whole year.

        Mr Spencer told Martin Day: “It was a private dinner thrown by me to thank the many individuals who helped me in my four-year tenure as party ­treasurer.

        “David did attend, but not for the entire evening. George ­Osborne, who is a close ­personal friend, dropped in too.”

        But last night Labour MP Tom Watson said: “David Cameron and George ­Osborne have shown their unbridled contempt for the British people by ­joining people quaffing expensive wines and ­champagne at a lavish party just before they hit ­everyone else with spending cuts.”

        Mr Cameron’s spokeswoman confirmed he had dropped into the event for a short while but said he was not present for the whole evening.

        A senior twerp at T-ory HQ added: “David Cameron is very grateful for the tremendous work Michael Spencer has done for the party.”

Powell writes: “Gordon blurted out: ‘But you are behind Cameron’ and declined the invitation … Gordon was extremely unhappy about Cameron’s election. He complained that Tony had promised him in July 2005 that David Davis would win, and he even accused Tony of backing Cameron.”
