"Frankenstein Bill" : No Free Vote, No Conscience Allowed

In 1990 when the Tories introduced the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act it was by a free vote. The Telegraph reports that Gordon has forced a three line whip on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill which will allow for the creation of animal-human embryos.

This is not a measure that orthodox Catholics can support. Nor will they want to merely abstain. They will want to vote against it. Is Gordon such a control freak that he will force cabinet ministers Ruth Kelly, Des Browne and Paul Murphy to choose between their careers and their faith? They, and many others, can’t in conscience vote for the Frankenstein Bill…

Today is a Dark Day in History

On this day in 1606, Guido Fawkes, following months of torture was convicted of treason for his part in the ”Gunpowder Plot” against an oppressive political class and the tyrant King James I, and executed. Now, some four centuries later, it is Guido’s turn to torture politicians…

LibDems Call for End to Anti-Catholic Bigotry

LibDem equality spokesperson, Lorely Burt, is today calling for an end to discrimination against Catholics. She therefore rises in my estimation considerably (am pretty certain she also put her card behind the bar one night after an event Guido attended, it is all a bit vague).

“Before he steps down, Tony Blair should consider removing this institutional discrimination. After all, if reports are to believed, he may have a rather more personal interest in Catholic affairs when he leaves No. 10; he should act whilst he still has the chance.” Hmm.

Remember, remember…

Falconer : Anti-Catholic Statutory Bigotry to Stay

The government can find time in the busy legislatory calendar to drive Catholic Adoption agencies out of business, but it can’t find time to amend anti-Roman Catholic bigotry enshrined in statute. Lord Falconer told Lord Patten that “The Government already have a heavy legislative programme and therefore have no plans to legislate in this area.”

They say the victors write the history books. Remember, remember, that it was because of the existence of an oppressive anti-Catholic protestant tyranny of corrupt politicians that Guido origianlly sought to blow up parliament on 5/11. After four centuries the only remaining statutory discrimination is still against Guido’s co-religionists. It is shameful that today, in a purportedly modern liberal democracy, the state discriminates against one specific faith. Did you know it is still the law that a Catholic parish church has to get authorisation from the local Anglican church for its own name? The political leader that promises to remove these symbolic but shameful laws will not be forgotten by Catholic voters…

Remember, Remember….

Centuries of anti-Catholic discrimination could come to an end if John Gummer gets his way. Not often that Guido lines up behind Cornerstone, but with this bill the headbangers should prevail.
Gummer’s speech moving the bill was good, very gently listing some of the slights against the Catholic church still on the statute books. He neglected to list the terrible suffering of Guido’s co-religionists under protestant tyrants. That may be history, but in truth it is shameful that today a purportedly modern liberal democracy discriminates against one specific faith.

Somebody said to Guido that it was indeed a terrible shame that Baby Ms Fawkes could not become head of state or even marry one. Wrong on both counts Guido told them, the presidency of Ireland is hers for the taking…

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
