Knowledge Is Great

Randy Rennard’s hands-on approach was common knowledge years ago, and evidence of Mike Hancock’s teen sleaze also found its way to the top. Turns out Nick was something of a know-it-all…

    Take a look at the immigration figures.

    155,000 British are voting with their feet and leaving the UK. This is up from the low of 128,000 at the time of the election but below the 207,000 in 2006.

    76,000 British returned to the UK. This is falling since a maximum at the election time of 97,000 (Obviously hope was high). The last minimum was 2007 of 74,000.

    So it is as pointless to return to the UK as it was in 2007. The motivation to leave is increasing but still not at the 2006 values. But hardly comparable since we have no housing boom which limits the people selling up and flying away.

    The actual number of non-British arriving is 439,000. That is a queue of approx 1.2km every day of the year. How do the services cope with that many new people to a unfamiliar new system? Free movement actually costs a lot, but we pay not them.

    What the fuck. There seem to be no shortage of perverts in the Limp Dumbs.

    A Lord Mayor who allegedly told a schoolgirl she was ‘sexy’ has escaped with a mere slap on the wrist.

    Alan Armitage, Lord Mayor at Oxford City Council, was said to have made the inappropriate comment to the young girl during an official engagement last year.

    The girl, who was a member of an under-13s sports team, met Mr Armitage at an awards evening where he told her: ‘It’s sexy when you bend over like that’.

    Tonight members of Oxford City Council’s Standards Committee ruled that it was ‘highly probable’ that Mr Armitage did make an inappropriate comment to the young girl.

    As a result he was censured for having broken the code of conduct set down by the city council.

    However at the hearing, which met in private, it was found that there was no reason why he should not continue as Mayor.

    A few wandering hands around womens bottoms is one thing but it is hardly the crime of the century is it . If for example these Liberals have been indulging in a bit more then yes it is serious.
