One Down, Plenty Left.

In another of the truly tiresome and totally unnecessary legal cases which litter this once-green and pleasant land of ours, Mr. Justice Ousely threw out an appeal against removal from the UK of a woman from Zimbabwe. She has been in Britain since 2002, but only claimed asylum some six years later. Her appeal was denied on the grounds that, as she had admitted to being party and part of the criminal gangs who had dispossessed farmers, and had further admitted to beating victims whilst their homes burned, ‘inflicting enough pain to get them to run away’. It makes a pleasant change to report the actions of a High Court judge who has come to a sensible conclusion, based upon fact, and not allowing any of the ‘EU-centred ‘Yooman Rites’ drivel to sway his judgement.

But there is a deeper malaise within this judgment, pleasant though it is. This court case is but one of thousands which have dragged on through courts, tribunals and cases up and down this land, all fuelled by the totally ridiculous attitude of the Labour Party by throwing fuel on the fire by the giving of ‘further effect’ to the European Convention on Human Rights within the Human rights act of 1998. The judges, chairmen and other Labour party apparatchiks grabbed this useless legislation, with the result that we cannot throw scum like this woman out without a lengthy legal process, as we also cannot deport the Afghani terror hijackers because that deportation may interfere with their rights! No-one asked about the rights of the pilot who had a gun pointed at his head.

I don’t care if the scum who hijacked the plane were supposedly fleeing from the Taliban, We should have put them on the same aircraft and sent the criminals back to Kabul! We have enough criminals in Britain already, including some within the Northern Ireland Assembly, to want to keep nine more plus, of course, their innumerable children, wives, concubines and other sexual partners!

The astounding statement that we do not have any idea how many bogus asylum seekers there are has been made long ago, and the feeble attempts by our Border Agency to remove some are catalogued elsewhere, but the problem remains as long as we keep any legal net around either the UN Refugee rubbish, outdated by some fifty years, or the whole farrago of the EU Human rights rubbish. Yes, I am all for Human rights, but not at the expense of either strong border controls or a population which is being slowly excluded from access to justice, because Justice is busy elsewhere!

Kill, Or Be Killed!

The golden eagle is truly a marvellous creation, and a living tribute to the only law which counts in Nature; the Law of Survival.

To even see one of these superb killing machines in flight, or even more spectacular, to have a similar bird-of-prey alight on your arm, is one of the greatest thrills I have experienced.

But there is a clash, these days, between these magnificent creatures such as the eagle, the kestrel or the hen harrier, and the land managers who run huge areas of land to raise and market gamebirds for shooting parties.

Seems as though the RSPB has got the idea that the landowners should be punished if gamekeepers or others trap or poison the birds of prey which are using their managed flocks as a kind of ready-use locker, with no charge for entry!

Now I’m all in favour of the laws of the land being observed, but most of these birds are only now being re-introduced to the skies of Britain after being extinct for nearly a century.

So who is correct, some conservation project to bring back a kestrel or an eagle, or the people who are working hard to run an industry?

“390,000 Jedis There Are”

The National Census is coming ever nearer, and I wish that I could argue like this!

I detest the very idea of a census, and intend to either leaving everything blank, or fill up every space with loads of rubbish. The idea of claiming membership of an invented religion such as the Jedi appeals, but unfortunately it has already been appropriated by NutCases Anonymous.

I do not honestly know why a Government nominally known as partly Tory has not abolished the very idea of a census, although accepting that any Labour government salivates at the very notion of listing everyone, and placing them in their little socialistic boxes. With the advent of computerisation, the listing is of course ever easier, as long as the software doesn’t contain a built-in virus, and the operating system hasn’t been compromised by an American hacker looking for evidence of life in Westminster.

Yes.S.S., I’ve Won; But….

As I am not requiring anonymity at any stage, I would first of all like to state that winning this extremely large amount of money will change my life completely. I have been a loyal follower and of course buyer of Lottery tickets for years, and apart from the usual miserly ten or five pounds set apart by months, I have won absolutely nothing of any significance up to the present date. So, as I plan to buy a large bungalow up here in Durham, with another sited strategically down South to facilitate extremely regular Grandad visits, you can expect a rush of enjoyment to colour any and all postings both on my own site as well as here on ATW.

I will not be buying a motor cruiser or a yacht, as I can always hire one when needed. My transportation needs will be filled by an Audi R8 for my own use, with either a Range Rover de luxe edition or an uprated Volvo XC90 for family travel, as I need to carry a wheelchair for my wife’s use. I’m thinking about buying a Mini-Cooper for going to the shops, as the Audi is just a little bit ‘in their face’, and I don’t want to upset the locals.

I will of course be selecting only the best of audio hi-fi equipment for my wife and myself, as music is one of our lasting loves. There is a query there of course, in the choice of systems. whether to go for a solid-state amplifier system, or one based on valve equipment, but I am sure to make the correct decision. I anticipate spending double whatever is required, as of course we shall have two homes to completely furnish.

As ever, there is only one, no, not a problem; those such as I prefer to call it a challenge. I have been advised of my enormous good fortune by the Payments Director of Camelot Plc (GB) as winner in the Best Voluntary and Charity Project Category, and will be issued with a Star prize of 1,750,000.00GBP  and a Gold Member Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon wrist watch worth$1.3 million.

The challenge is that I’ve mislaid all the documentation on my charity, and despite looking through at least three files, cannot locate anything. Suggestions please?

St. Jude Is Heard At Last!

I note that Caroline Lucas, the Green Party MP for Brighton, has called for job-sharing to be introduced within the House where she now works. Now I will honestly admit that, very shorty after she arrived at Westminster, I posted on the one call which dearest Caroline made for a little honesty and openness within the Trafigura episode, where Trafigura, an international slime company, attempted to hush up the very fact that they had an injunction placed upon the Guardian. But this is a different call, in a very different context.

So will the British public welcome the job-sharing idea? I dunno’, especially when we also get offers like this!

There’s a lot going on!

According to Nielsen, Google is still the most popular Search Engine. In America,  from where the statistics were obtained, some 64.2% of searches were from the ubiquitous Googleplex-sourced computer Massive, and I for one believe them.

There is a saying, prevalent in the South, Georgia, Alabama, places like that if newspapers are to be believed, which goes something along the lines of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” which is self-explanatory to all but the totally dense, or the arrogant semi-geniuses who run Google.

The usage and use of Google were so simple that even I could learn quickly to adapt my tired old mind; you simply typed in the search terms, words or ideas you wished to research, hit ‘enter’, and within fractions of a second, you were presented with thousands if not millions of possibilities. You then ran your eyes down the first page or two of lists, chose whatever, if it wasn’t relevant or complete, you tried again. As the Meerkat said; Simples!

But lo, behold, and Shazam! Google, in their infinite wisdom, have placed Google Instant as the default main page. They state that their computers can now predict what you are searching for before you finish typing, and their resulting searches come flooding on to your screen before you even complete your search.

Big Deal! I am just fed up with people fixing something which isn’t f***ing broken!

Leave me be, or I will migrate to Scroogle, Bloody Bing, or even worse Yahoo!
