Are Britainís problems so deep that NOBODY can make a difference to them? My emphatic answer is YES
thesun.co.uk ^ | April 30, 2013 | KEVIN SCHOFIELD

BLUNDERING Ed Miliband yesterday said Britain’s problems are so bad NO ONE can solve them.

The Labour chief made the gaffe as he drummed up support for Thursday’s council elections.

In a Radio 4 interview in which he repeatedly lost his temper, he said: “Are our problems so deep nobody can actually make a difference to them? My emphatic answer to that is yes.”

Mr Miliband also refused to admit Labour would increase borrowing if they were in power — even though Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls had already said as much.

Let it collapse, and then rebuild. That’s what we’ll be doing if Clintoon wins in 2016

All of Britain’s politicians rushed headlong to become EU-loving “Anti-Thatchers” and this is the result.

The only purpose of Labour is to convince the British public they can lift a turd by the clean end.

The only purpose of Liberal Democrats is to lift the other clean end.

The only purpose of Cameron’s coalition is to hope the previous two are successful while their own hands stay clean.

UKIP is all about getting out a shovel and cleaning up the yard.

No problems are so deep they cannot be solved. The trick is you have to try. Are the Brits finally willing to try?

It costs £76,000 a Day to keep that place open.
The defective concrete in the roof should take care of the problem.

The difference between Labour and the Conservative-LDP alliance is like the difference between Democrats and Republicans.

With Democrats in charge, it’s like being in a car going off a cliff at 100 MPH. The Republicans at least drive the speed limit — but you’re still going off the cliff.

Substitute Labour for Democrats and CP-LDP for Republicans, and the analogy fits Britain too.

In both cases, what’s needed is to turn the car around.

In the European Parliament like he has been since 1999. Being part of the continent’s version of the Supreme Soviet (the rubber stamp for the European agenda) doesn’t mean that he can help the UK.

My sister-in-law, who is from near Saltcoats, Scotland jumped all over my brother for suggesting the Muslims would take over. She said William Wallaceand many others will rise again if need be.

LOL

My dad is from Saltcoats!.

I was born in Irvine, the next town down the Ayrshire coast. My dads family still live in Saltcoats and I have many happy childhood memories there, it was my second home.
In summer weather, I still pop up to Saltcoats for a day out.

LOL

Small world, eh?.

Really? When Muslim thugs can chase London Bobbies down a street, hurling things at them and pelting them with abuse your country is on the fast track to domination by Islam. When The Crown allows a foreign 7th.century ‘’legal’’ system, Sharia Law to be practiced in place of the Crowns Law, you’re days are numbered. And when your Prince Regent for all intents adopts a fondness for Islam along side of or in place of The Church of England, whats left?

If it isn’t do late. If Henry the Eighth or Nelson of Churchill were alive to see what has become of ‘’...this jewel set in an Emerald Sea’’ they’d be aghast to say the least.

Sad isn’t it? I’m of the mind that the same will happen to Notre Dame in Paris but there are, I think, some glimmers of hope as the French seem to be waking up to the danger among them.

By Muslim thugs, are you referring to the ‘London riots’?.
Newsflash, Sherlock: most of the rioters were white and black, not Muslim or even Asian.

Sharia Law in the UK is a CIVIL SYSTEM, not a criminal system. In fact I posted that fact again just last week in a thread on the UK. FFS, pay attention.

96% of the UK is NOT Muslim. No Muslim group or individual holds any major power: political, social, media.

This idea ‘the Muzzies run Britain’ is laughable, and is spouted by Americans who have never been to the UK. And what they do know is only what bilge they get from here, the internet and rightwing talk radio.

I know that. Socialism has been a part of French culture for a long time.

No I wasn’t talking about the ‘’London Riots’’, ‘’Sherlock’’ Nor did I give any figure concerning the per centage of Muslims in Britain. Sharia law is the core of Islam and it is a criminal system, look at it, study it.

1—Yes, there are a minority of Muslim thugs in the UK. And the police should deal with them more harshly, but then the UK police neds to deal with ALL violent thugs more harshly and stop being a social work dept in uniform.

2—No, I brought in the %. As its very relevant to what we are talking about. I was pointing out that the % of Muslims in the UK is very small. And I would add that not all of that small % is Pakistani descent, which is where most of the extremist trouble comes from.

I have been told on here by Americans that the UK is 25% Muslim, people who truly believe that. And I have had to correct it. And of course every day, I and the other British and Irish freepers have to combat the myths and nonsense about Muslims in the UK and the UK generally. The biggest being that they run the UK, have great power. Utter nonsense of course, but people here believe it.

3—Sharia in the UK is a civil law. It may be criminal elsewhere, but legally in the UK is a civil law and is legally subordinate to English law.

In a word, done. England will be done in by this 7th. century barbarism in time. So will we if these troglodytes are not dealt with harshly. Islam has proven itself time and again to be incompatible with free peoples. There will be more 9/11s in the future and more Bostons.
