    A Landrover?? Bally Hell! I didn’t know they still had one of those!

    As I said in my 2010 Defence Review, Britain faces no military threats before 2020 at the earliest, so that Landrover’s not required. I’ll get the MOD to sell it immediately, and put the money towards African windfarms. What what!

    Fears are mounting that the heavy snowfall across Britain could plunge the fragile economy into a triple-dip recession.

    Official figures next week are expected to show that output fell in the fourth quarter of the year following the briefest of recoveries between July and September.

    Analysts yesterday warned that the disruption caused by blizzards could lead to another three months of decline at the start of this year – pushing Britain into its third recession in five years.

    Only real difference is Senkaku islands are uninhabited.

    The Japanese, in all fairness, messed up when they took sovereignty over the islands back in 1972. They should have established a military base somewhere at least, if not to defend then to establish some sort of habitation.

    Strategically much more important than F’lands. Japan trying to get into NATO now, and US suggesting NATO get more involved in Pacific affairs demonstrates this and weakness of Japan.

    If Ch!na wins and establishes forward base / starts to produce oil it will affect US security somewhat, and will consolidate PRC hold over ROC.

    Chances high that Ch!na will go ahead with this as Jiabao needs some sort of ‘win’ to help quell disquiet which is popping up around the country and get people back behind the party.

    The Japanese ability to create brand new military bases in the early 70s would have created all sorts of unthinkable problems then which would not be seen to be the case now. In addition, though its home industry was growing rapidly, they were only at the start of the huge export drive that made them manufacturers to the world during the 80s, the role now occupied by China.

    There are also the southern Kuriles which have long been in dispute, this time with the Ruskies. China must have been watching opportunistically at this and thinking about the best time to launch their own play.

    Armstrong is a filthy c'nut says:

    To manufacture a bike involves good knowledge and skill at producing metal tubes.

    Metal tubes are the key component of firearms and most projectile weaponry.

    If Armstrong is being wheeled out on telly a lot in the UK (he is largely written off in the US) saying he is sorry etc. it is not to save his sorry a$$, more to perhaps save the sport, or keep demand for bikes up.

    Cycling was really hyped at the 2012 Olympics, likely to help boost exports / manufacture from UK. If that is now tarnished, time to move on.

    If bike demand goes down as a result of Armstrong trashing the sport globally, to the point the IOC are dropping it at the next Olympics, then instead of flogging the dead horse: innovate. Preserve the skills and keep them productive.

    Arms export and manufacture is much more beneficial to UK economy. Repealing the post 1997 control laws in the UK will help provide a good domestic market and make the country a better and safer place.

    The EU is written all over UN 2085, but the entity is not relevant to this job or capable of doing what is written down. The Algerian granting of access to it’s airspace to France should have been recognized as being a trap – perfectly plausible for covering this development which UK likely new would have been the result.

    You would be correct to state that about 68% of the population have IQ within 1 standard deviation of the average, assuming IQ is Gaussian distributed, or half have IQ below the mean assuming Gaussian distribution.

    I’m disappointed Guido hasn’t covered two major stories from the last week which are absolutely sickening and outrageous in nature.

    The first is the Muslim Patrols story, about the bunch of fucking bearded raghead c-unts wearing hoods and going around areas late at night in London and intimidating people they regard as being immoral. They uploaded a video where they went to a woman who was on her own late at night and called her an animal for wearing a skirt. In other footage they forced a man to throw away his bottle because he was in a “muslim area”. You’ll note these brave soldiers of the p*edo prophet wear hoods and only go up to people who are on their own late at night.

    The second was that Martin Smith of the Socialist Workers Party was acquited of rápe by the party in a private sharia style court. A female member of the party accused him of rápe. Instead of taking the matter to the police, she and the party decided to handle it themselves because they “can’t trust the bourgeois court system”. They took his side of the story, whilst admitting they’re all personal friends of his and don’t know the victim. Several members of the party have resigned as a result.

    The first story is the product of decades of left propaganda that told us to respect islam or else we were nazis. The second shows how the left really view women’s rights.

    Both = the left in all its nasty, ugly, horrific glory.

    The base back then could have been set up with the US and wouldn’t have to be anything big. There was survey work done and the oil was known about since 1968, but is perhaps not Ch!na’s main concern. Ch!na is relatively new to deep sea drilling:

    (NB: Note the location and that AW109’s were recently sold to the Phil and the crash in London the other day and significant of T@ng… curious eh. ?)

    Timing is more likely due to political problems at home and availability of aircraft carrier / new attack subs. Ch!nese SU rip offs should beat Japan F-15’s if they can project closer to the islands.

    Agree it is curious that these were missed here, however caution should be paid.

    The Mu55ie patrol in London is interesting. They are actually projecting a set of moral principals onto people who they view as having abdicated all sense of moral responsibilities. The knee jerk reaction is that they are wrong to do this, however that is left training bypassing the fact that such opposition implies that a different set of moral values are being imposed on them. The real problem is a liberal one, in that they are reacting to the fact that amoral values are being imposed and flouted.

    Do not agree with their methods, but as a libertarian in principal one agrees with what they are fundamentally trying to do. Highlighting that is divisive as the left has muddied the debate too much with the race card.

    The Smith case should be dealt with by Police and CPS immediately, and all those involved in the ‘court’ should be prosecuted for various offences which have been committed. Would need to check but it must be illegal to set up an adhoc court such as that to deal with criminal matters.

    @Missed Story Watch, I agree completely on Smith/SWP. Completely disagree on the muslims. This is Britain, we have the right to drink and women have the right to dress how they want. These rabid thugs are trying to impose the strictures of their perverted ideology in a country where they have no business doing such a thing. Can you imagine the reaction if an English group was found to have patrolled areas telling muslim women to take off their burka and forcing muslim men to drink beer? Yet, these same leftie c-unts remain deafeningly silent on this because it’s muslims. This is the very nightmare we’ve been warning about for years. It started with halal meat in supermarkets, then halal served at fast food outlets, now they’re trying to control what the indigenous population do. If there’s one good thing to come out of it, it’s that hatred against muslims will quadruple as a result. These stinking, bearded, halitosis ridden perverts are too thick to realise they’re their own worst enemy.

    sky news transcripts says:

    the jury at the trial of ian huntley were never shown any evidence that proved the two soham girls were deceased because the judge deemed the crime scene photographs too graphic, despite it being a fundamental part of murder charges that states the jury must be shown such evidence.

    also

    detective constable brian stevens was originally charged with inciting others to make indecent images of children. who exactly was the person he incited?

    exhibits officer tony goodridge was originally charged with removing evidence from a crime scene… the crime scene in question being ian huntley’s house.

    later the charges against these to police officers were changed to possession of indecent images of children.

    on their website sky news provided daily transcripts of the court proceedings, however each transcript was proceeded with a message that stated they might remove parts of the transcripts on grounds of public decency. having read each and every transcript i can tell you the only thing they removed were partial sections concerning ian huntley’s use of the internet.

    it is very interesting that the mainstream media neglected to mention to the public that ian huntley was autistic or his behaviour on days when he was present at court. long gone was the man seen striding in front of the cameras during the search for the girls, instead it was replaced by a man who spent most of his court appearances dribbling and rocking from side to side. this change in demeanour is no doubt due to the fact he spent some time prior to the trial at rampton high security hospital.

    the press also made no mention of the fact that the father of holly wells, who worked as a window cleaner, spent a couple of weeks cleaning the windows of the school that ian huntley was a caretaker of. and yes you’ve guessed it, huntley assisted kevin wells in this task and most days both holly and jessica were also present.

    detective constable brian stevens whose official role in the case was that of family liaison officer, was additionally charged at a later date with indecently assaulting a 13 year old girl, which happened to be the same age of a older sister of one of the soham girls.

    brian stevens was eventually found not guilty of all charges and at the end of the trial appeared before the media decked at in a cheap looking suit- which is strange because anyone who has the misfortune of knowing or encountering him knows he a penchant for extremely expensive well cut three piece suits. (i say that with first hand experience of this scumbag).

    in summary… huntley was part of a online child pornography ring and engaged in sexual behaviour with the two soham girls. stevens was a member of the same online ring and got huntley to photograph/video this behaviour. stevens and other members of the ring then conspired to kidnap the girls and pervert the course of justice aka to get huntley to carry the can. it is highly likely that the girls remained captive sex slaves of this ring for several years.

    Get where you are coming from with the Mu55ie groups, but the picture has to be looked at from two sides. Incidentally, I do not support the policy which led to their large presence here in the first place, what we are seeing now is an unintended consequence of that action.

    The Halal meat issue is in our favor: The standards for Halal are much higher than usual fair, and other than the odd sounding name and cutting out pork, should not be an issue. (The uTube vids of pork chops with coke put me off to be fair and confirmed that those who reject are on to something…)

    Their approach to imposing their moral value system cannot be supported. That they are making the effort though can be, and is important.

    The real reaction should be to restore the understanding of moral consequence of action in the indigenous population. This would cut the argument from the Mu55ie side, and give us the moral strength to have them adapt to our culture and stop attacking our culture on these grounds.

    The issue of women is deeply complex. They are actually the largest victim group in the liberal war that has been fought in the UK. Yes they should wear what they want, and have freedom, but they should also display self respect and a sense of decorum when out and about. Modern feminism is does great disservice in this respect.

    Actions have consequence, and all must take responsibility for their own actions. A reaction against the religion or along xenophobic lines will fail if the desire is to correct this problem and have the enemy conform to our standards.

    One could almost consider the liberal destruction of moral responsibility, hence culture as being a subversive way of trying to merge disparate cultures in a cultural union of sorts.

    The flaw of course is how do you integrate cultures which have no sense of moral responsibility. They will likely turn on each other at the earliest opportunity.

    That situation has clearly moved on whilst my attention has been elsewhere. I had always expected the trouble to flare up on the Kashmir side. My father served on secondment to the Indian Navy up to the time of partition and actually lived in the house which Lutyens built on Aurangzeb Road and in which Muhammad Ali Jinnah had previously lived. It is now the Dutch Ambassador’s residence and I was treated to tea there on my last visit when they learned of my family connections.

    The prime example of irredentism is of course the Anschluss, something out of my time but with which I have had a startling number of close but chance connections which I won’t go into now.

    The Tibet situation would not have moved the food problems on at all as it is all subsistence stuff there. But it is one step closer which probably provides the key. Have they built air bases there?

    Diversity aint just for the plebs says:

    House them next to the politicians, academics and media folk who think importing them will be no problem.

    Hey Dimblebore, that means a few dozen Roma families in your nice little Sussex villiage, about time you had some real diversity. Who do you think you are? Billy Bragg?

    Anyone with a high powerd rifle can take out a helicopter – and it’s hardly likely that the hole will be discovered in whats left of the wreckage – there was a helicopter which had a similar odd dropping to the gorund near Bournemouth airport several years ago – all russian businessmen involved of course.

    Katie and her former footy boyfriend were both well know to like a bit of the old coke. Many unborn children are skrewed for life by their parents’ coke habits – yet they never own up to that it was their coke habits which affected the development of the unborn. She is the most high profile coke abuser who will not admit he mistakes along with her ex footy coke head partner.

    Many of the old school of Doctors – know damned well that the H Oath is but a worthless piece of cra.p these days – most Doctors are now suborned under legal vultures (of the NHS Litigation Dept) who face off any and every risk of litigation that may come their way – YES another cancer out of the litigation propagation of schools of f.uck.s of Ma erica.

    As a member of the public in the UK – would Mr O (over the pond) kindly keep his nose out of our business – you don’t come under the 5hit that EU politicos feed us – if you did you’d soon change yer mind sonny boy.

    What you have to know, with your HK MP7 in hand, is that that chopper is going to be flying over you and diverted, because of fog, to Battersea.

    And there is the issue of the fog itself…

    I think you have to think that one through better…

    Now that we have a new page, I would just like to thank all those sockpuppets who have tried and, I hope failed, to imitate me.

    I do appreciate TaT that it is the sincerest form of flattery…

    this has got nothing to do with the late joe viall’s take on the soham case- he was completely wrong. i am not suggesting everything he ever pontificated about to be incorrect but on this one he was way out.

    some of the trial transcripts are available here…

    and here is a library of news articles pertaining to the case…

    ha ha. So see though.

    Push it to find out, and yes, I have found it out.

    Another hypocritical site.

    Dozens of posts from me eliminated today, since I make tory se english look stupid. What is new, ey?

    Pathetic. Toys in pram it is, and you have made you look like right arses.

    The fault lays with BP for not protecting its employees and the UK Government for not insisting they do so…

    In truth despite all the huff and puff the Algerians and the UK don’t have much in common with possibly the exception of not giving a toss about hostages whilst pretending otherwise…

    Follow the cash my friends this rule rarely lets you down!

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
