  • The NHS did not deserve to be so disgracefully glorified in this bonanza of left-wing propagand

    The letters ‘NHS’ dazzled in bright red, like some triumphant advert. All around pranced self-indulgent nurses who had volunteered to take a few days off to be part of the ceremony. And how long did this shameful propaganda last for? A whole 15 minutes at the top of proceedings before viewers dozed off to the procession of banana republics and far-flung destinations nobody has ever heard of or even cares for. That such a politically divisive subject was included at all is utterly shocking. Not least because it glossed over the cracks in a system that is creaking at its...
  • Gay Marriage 'Nothing to Fear', Say Senior Anglicans

    BBC ^ | 6/12/12
    A group of leading Anglicans says the Church of England has "nothing to fear" from the prospect of gay marriage and it is should be a cause for rejoicing. In a letter to The Times, prominent figures including five former bishops say statements by church leaders give a false impression of popular feeling. "We believe the Church has nothing to fear from... civil marriage for same-sex couples," it says. "It will be for the churches to then decide how they respond pastorally." A leading signatory of the letter is Dr Jeffrey John, the openly gay dean of St Albans, whose...

    British and Americans lay wreaths at a ceremony in London. Mobs of Islamofascists show up to shout threats, curse America, burn our flag, and threaten jihad. What do London Police do? Nothing to the jihadists, but they force the memorial ceremony to end and its participants to leave, to avoid an "incident." So much for freedom of speech. Shame on you, Britain. It's terrible to see a once great nation die at the hands of political correctness. VIDEO

    England has fallen. Quicker than I would have thought. Home Secretary Theresa May rules out use of the Army, Water Cannons. The situation is spiraling out of control. High Street areas, the ritzy places of Kensington, Notting Hill, and other "tony" areas have had rioters looting patrons of two-star Michelin restaurants. While Home Secretary May declares that "policing is done with the consent of communities." Code words for no action that the Black, Pakistani Muslim, and now Indian groups that have effectively colonized England would object to, will be taken. As the MP for Northern Ireland notes, both the Army...

    Church of England To Allow Gay Clergy To Become Bishops The Church of England is using the Equality Act as a “smokescreen” for allowing gay clergymen to become bishops, according to the leader of the National Secular Society. By Donna Bowater 19 Jun 2011 Guidance due to be published on Monday was expected to pave the way for homosexual clerics in civil partnerships to become bishops provided they remained celibate. The document, published in response to last year’s Equality Act, will be sent to the General Synod before it meets in York next month. The paper said: "Someone in a...

    It’s official: Britain is no longer a Christian nation. In banning Eunice and Owen Johns, a devout Christian couple, from fostering children, Lord Justice Munby and Mr Justice Beatson declared that we live in a secular state, and that the Johns’ religious convictions disqualified them from raising citizens of that state. We’ve outgrown Christianity, the judges professed. Instead, we have graduated to the status of a multicultural nation, blessed by a plurality of faiths. Ironically, the justices who have pronounced that Britain is no longer Christian did so in a court where witnesses swear on the Bible and invoke God’s...

    Every year, researchers from the British Social Attitudes survey ask a representative sample of British people whether they regard themselves as belonging to any particular religion and, if so, to which one? When the survey first asked these questions in 1985, 63% of the respondents answered that they were Christians, compared with 34% who said they had no religion (the rest belonged to non-Christian religions).Today, a quarter of a century on, there has been a steady and remarkable turnaround. In the latest 2010 BSA report, published earlier this month, only 42% said they were Christians while 51% now say they...

    A courtroom erupted in protest today after a student who tried to murder a Labour MP was jailed for life with a minimum term of 15 years. Roshonara Choudhry, 21, stabbed Stephen Timms twice in the stomach after being inspired by a radical Al Qaeda cleric linked to the air cargo bomb plot. Her attack on the former Treasury minister is thought to be the first Al Qaeda-inspired attempt to assassinate a politician on British soil. After the sentence was passed, a group of men began shouting in the public gallery 'Allahu akbar' ('God is great'), 'British go to hell'...

    Something explosive is about to hit the British political arena, a book with ideas so shocking it will change the debate on the most important issue in European politics. For years, the European political class have told their peoples that mass immigration was beneficial, inevitable and historically precedented. It enriched our lives, it boosted our economy, it made us better people morally and it was a continuation of our countries’ histories of immigration, and anyone who disagrees is a racist bigot. The ruling class kitted the emperor out in his fancy new clothes and if people could not see them...

    A medal personally established by the Queen is being withdrawn after it was deemed offensive to Muslims and Hindus. The honour - known as The Trinity Cross of the Order of Trinity - has been ruled unlawful and too Christian. It has been awarded to 62 distinguished residents of the former colony of Trinidad and Tobago over more than 40 years, including cricketers Brian Lara and Garfield Sobers, novelist V.S. Naipaul and many diplomats and politicians. But groups representing the Caribbean islands' Muslim and Hindu communities - which account for around a third of their 1.3million-strong population - had argued...

Four children stripped and whipped a teenager before dumping him unconscious in a shallow grave in a scene reminiscent of the novel Lord of the Flies. The 15-year-old victim, who has a mental age of seven, was hit with planks and had lit cigarettes forced up his nose. He begged for mercy from his tormentors - a girl of 14, two boys aged 11 and another boy of 13. The girl...

    SNIPPET: "The plot was found on a password-protected internet message board on a site which has carried an interview with Osama bin Laden’s No 2 Ayman al Zawahiri, 57. A user named Paganslayer asks what the mood is for another round of deadly attacks on the continent. There follows a warped discussion about the 7/7 London bombings, which killed 52 innocent people. Using the Arabic word “kuffar”, meaning “non-believers”, a user called Resistance writes: “What does it benefit a Muslim to have four Muslim lives lost … for only 100 kuffar? I think that’s horrible odds.” Resistance adds: “Now, wouldn’t...

    A drunken teenager who beat up a priest walked free yesterday after the judge accepted the attack was a 'one-off mistake'. Babul Islam was one of three Asian youths who attacked Canon Michael Ainsworth in his churchyard. The 19-year-old punched the vicar in the head while others kicked him ' one all¬egedly shouting 'f*****g priest' ' only stopping when passers-by intervened. His battered victim spent nearly two weeks in hospital after the assault, which prosecutor Carl May-Smith said 'had a profound effect on him'. The shop assistant admitted being extremely drunk during the attack but denied it was religiously-motivated '...

    "Miss Rawlins, I Need Help"In 1999 the British Labour Party, in one of those boneheaded acts that the left excels at, made a seemingly minor adjustment to it's immigration policy that doomed many thousands of young girls to death, beatings, and a nightmare life. In January 2000 The Independent reported that thousands of young U.K. Muslim girls were being forced into marriages to foreigners, primarily Pakistanis. Many of these girls were third generation Brits, with only a rudimentary understanding of their new language. The groom was often a cousin, a visa seeker--or something worse. And it is not only her...

British media are reporting that Arthur Cunningham and Joseph Abraham, American evangelical ministers who've been living in Great Britain for years, were told by a police community support officer to "stop handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham."....

At all levels of national life Islam has gained state funding, protection from any criticism, and the insertion of advisors and experts in government departments national and local. A Muslim Home Office adviser, for example, was responsible for Baroness Scotland's aborting of legislation against...
