Is it just me or is it a strange reflection on a Country when their National dress is old men in funny hats and pyjamas and layered aprons are the costume of the young women!

The Co-Op farms having pulled out of Milk Production one would think that the £2.5 Million dairy facility, moth balled, and the 30 Million litre deficit of milk would be a boon to small dairy farmers – well isn’t that how market economics works?

Well sadly Not!

Sadly I do not think it will make one jot. tikel or iota difference to the milk price – merely to the huge number of laden trucks trundling into Britain filled with foreign drivers, deisel purchased abroad and 40 tonne axle loadings.

Just to put you in the picture when you think of an 18 wheeler – that is 4 x 4 tyre axles @ 40 tonnes per axle.

Well just as a guide 80 tonnes of potatoes is about the volume of a generous 3.1/2 bedroom Council House (remember them!) – so an 18 wheeler is the equivallent of two whole Council Houses full of potatoes to the crest of the roof!

That is a lot of foreign profit on a lot of foreign deisle and a lot of foreign traffic on a lot of BRITISH roads – we pay for the roads they get the profit!

On the M4 anywhere from about Newbury West you will find cart ruts of neo Roman proportions from the 100s of 1,000s of tonnes of goods joining the Motorway from the South Coast entry points.

Similarly we find a rat run of T.I.R. tractor trailer units crossing Britain from the North Sea ports slaughtering local families 6 at a time!

Heading south to north I understand Peers of the realm can be found texting articles of glee to Pakistani papers (Frankly I don’t give a dhoti, an abaya or a khimar if I offended some small minded s*it stirrer by using either the right number of ns or not – we all know what a Paki is it is an abreviation just like Brit or Gerry and I never minded being called Johnny in Karachi!), nor my Grandfather on The North West Frontier on the road from Khabul in 1919!
Maybe our illustrious peer was peering at his text or not as he threatened Brits with 10,000 very alien incomers who fail to respect our customers, as a rioting mob. Whilst he of course killed a man due to lack of attention!

Back to those ruts – they are the cost of open borders, they are the cost of surrendering to 40 tonne axle loads, they are the cost of Continental Greed and destabilising simple economics!
The huge trucks roll west to the ports to leave for Ireland – oblivious of tachos. not caring for driving hours and all too many sharing a common name it seems – Prawo Jazdy was wanted for 100s of motoring crimes in Ireland until the local police discovered it was not the driver’s name but Polish for Driving License!

These ruts get ever deeper causing accidents, blow outs and shed rubber – we derive only the bill and not a cent of revenue as the shelves of Ireland are replenished on EU subsidies – meanwhile the tired drivers and empty trucks bounce dangerously eastward back, empty now as Ireland produces little and now able to speed, sometimes 3 a breast as they race back to the Continent for another load and a refil of foreign fuel.

We on the other hand are left with insufficient funds to maintain our highways – are we allowed to set our own solution BUT NO a mere murmer of this and our Continental foes put satellites in the sky at our expense to tax the Brits and the Pakis proud to live amongst us with ROAD TAXING!

I always said the Germans shouldn’t have sunk The Lusitania – it could still be hauling cargo to Ireland rather than our roads being hammered at no National gain.

I do wish Prawo Jazdy would go home!

This is an attempt to balance the new political control mechanism to prevent developement in developing Countries.

To tell the truth and stand up to the Warmist lies of the new religion is a dangerous stance as if you are a scientist you dare not tell the truth.

ALL GRANTS are Government controlled – No One Expects The Spanish Inquisition but if you dared to speak out against this evil you had all the bits that stuck out screwed off.

Now if you question the Politician’s new state religion find themselves without the grant money to sustain their research – whether medicine, fuel, road surface, power etc. etc.

Now look what a mess we are in – facing random power outs due to the failure of Government to build power stations, based on a self enriching scam of control that dishonestly pretends that Windmills stand an earthly YES Earthly possibility of providing power adequate to build and errect windmills let alone produce a surplus!

Carbon Footprint!! The concrete block required let alone the transport costs or the heat to make the cable for the windings and the land lines uses so much energy that a windmill is unlikely to break even for over 7 years – will it last that long?

The wind farm off the coast at Gorlston in East Anglia has failed to produce one spark of usable energy yet and the first set of generating motors have burnt out or worn out!

The motors have ALL had to be replaced..

Watch This if you wish to be better informed:

Fatty deposits don’t do much for me – I’ll still go with Khol!

But as a special treat for those more tactile males I hope this helps:

This reminded me with fond humour of a young lady in my life, of about 30+ years ago, Mo and I spent some time together in Africa, since when we have kept in touch desultorally, as I have with almost every serious past girlfriend who has been a part of my life at some time in the last 45 years.

Those I have lost touch with always leave a gap. After 25 years Lee is not phased by this one iota and we met Mo, who is happily married and living in Canada, BUT A LOT OLDER!! (I of course have remained young energetic and …. Well when it doesn’t hurt or scare me!).

Lee and I went to meet Mo for the firast time since 1974 or so – she was visiting her brother so having heard of him on and off for years I rather looked forward to meeting him.

We met in Marlborough for lunch on a drizzly British Sunday – years rolled away and since that time Chas and I have kept in touch as well.

At Christmas he mailed me this and since it amused me I feel I should share it 😉

As a joke, my brother-in-law Leo used to hang a pair of pantyhose over his fireplace before Christmas.

He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them.
What they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every Christmas morning, although Leo’s kids’ stockings overflowed, his poor pantyhose hung sadly empty.
One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and a grubby trench coat and went in search of an inflatable love doll. They don’t sell those things at Boots the Chemist or Wal-Mart. I had to go to an adult bookstore downtown.
If you’ve never been in an X-rated store, don’t go you’ll only confuse yourself. I was there an hour saying things like, ‘What does this do?’ ‘You’re kidding me!’ ‘Who would buy that?’ “The batteries last ALL night!” “Does Health and Safety know about this?”
Finally, I made it to the inflatable doll section.
I wanted to buy a standard, uncomplicated doll that could also substitute as a passenger in my car so I could use the car pool lane during rush hour. Cunning eh?
Finding what I wanted was difficult. ‘Love Dolls’ come in many different models. The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do things I’d only seen in a book on animal husbandry and hoped the RSPCA wasn’t watching.
I settled for ‘Lovable Louise.’ She was at the bottom of the price scale. To call Louise a ‘doll’ took a huge leap of imagination and desperation.
On Christmas Eve and with the help of an old bicycle pump, Louise came to life.
My sister Mo was in on the plan and let me in during the wee morning hours. Long after Santa had come and gone, I filled the dangling pantyhose with Louise’s pliant legs and bottom. I also ate some cookies and drank what remained of a glass of milk on a nearby tray. I went home, and giggled and chortled for a couple of hours.
The next morning Leo called to say that Santa had been to his house and left a present that had made him VERY happy, but had left the dog confused. She would bark, start to walk away, then come back and bark some more.
We all agreed that Louise should remain in her pantyhose so the rest of the family could admire her when they came over for the traditional Christmas dinner.
My grandmother noticed Louise the moment she walked in the door. ‘What the hell is that?’ she asked. Leo quickly explained, ‘It’s a doll.’

‘Who would play with something like that?’ Granny snapped. I kept my mouth shut. Leo looked guilty.
‘Where are her clothes?’ Granny continued. ‘Mmmm, that turkey sure smells nice, Gran,’ Leo said, to steer her into the dining room. But Granny was relentless.
‘Why doesn’t she have any teeth?’
Again, I could have answered, but why would I?
It was Christmas and no one wanted to ride in the back of the ambulance saying, ‘Hang on Granny, hang on!’
My grandfather, a delightful old man with poor eyesight, sidled up to me and said, ‘Hey, who’s the naked girl by the fireplace?’ I told him she was Leo’s friend.
That widened his eyes and raised his eyebrows sharpish.
A few minutes later I noticed Granddad by the mantel, talking to Louise. Not just talking, but actually flirting. It was then that we realized this might be Granddad’s last Christmas at home.
The dinner went well. We made the usual small talk about who had died, who was dying, and who should be killed, when suddenly Louise made a noise like Leo does in the bathroom in the morning. Then she lurched from the mantel, flew around the room twice, and fell in a heap in front of the sofa.
The cat screamed, the dog hid under the sofa. I passed cranberry sauce through my nose, and Grandpa ran across the room, fell to his knees, and began administering mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Leo fell back over his chair and wet his pants.Granny threw down her napkin, stomped out of the room, and sat in the car.

Mo sat there looking startled and bemused with her “What the f**k was that?” look.

The last time I saw that was when an Elephant touched her up in Mana Pools Zimbabwe, but that is another story.
It was indeed a Christmas to treasure and remember. Later in Leo’s garage, we conducted a thorough examination to decide the cause of Louise’s collapse.
We discovered that Louise had suffered from a hot ember to her right, now quite wrinkly, buttock. Fortunately, thanks to a wonder drug called duct tape, we restored her to perfect health………….. I can’t wait until next Christmas I might get another and rent her out.
Early booking will be essential I think ?

I still feel happier with the khol but you may prefer the ring tones!

be minded that this evil little functionary Hans-Gert Poettering is the unelected President of the European Parliament, is respond to a speech made by The President of The EUropean Union, Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus, in which he deplored the democratic deficit of the EU.

The arrogance and hubris of this strident little parasite Poettering has all the skills and spite, venom and self importance of the odious house painter the barbaric and murderous little Adolf Hitler.

Vaclav Klaus is the President of the EU – by what authority does this odious little jerk challenge him?

Do study the text in which he makes it VERY clear that the EU is a dishonest and corrupt organisation making over 75% of ALL of our laws – it is already proven that it is undemocratic in ANY meaningfull way – a Dictatorship of Snivil Cervants and self important little parasites ;like this odious little Poettering.

Never forget that there has NEVER been a British Politician who has not claimed in his election speeches and manifesto that The Common Agricultural Policy is wrong and should be changed – NOT ONE.

In the 40 years we have been vassals to this corrupt body British Politicians have not managed to change one comma, full stop, word or phrase in the CAP.

There is absolutely no point in voting for an MEP as they can not and do not have any say – they just stuff their pockets and all too often their mouths and the staff at our expense. We have just been told by the odious Poettering that our Westminster MPs are also a waste of space as over 75% of our laws are IMPOSED upon Westminster by the corrupt, centralised and undemocratic EU.

Don’t ever vote for a politician again until these United Kingdoms are free of the EU.

Make EVERY election a referendum on the EU until we are out –

Write on your ballot paper:

#G071* – The EU GRAVY TRAIN for MEPs

#G071* – The EU GRAVY TRAIN for MEPs

February 22, 2009
How to make a million in five years (become a Euro MP)
David Craig
I left the European parliament’s imposing Brussels buildings and walked towards the Place du Luxembourg, turned left into the Rue de Trèves, took a first right at the flower shop on the corner and stumbled on just what I needed. Three buildings were advertising studios for rent. This would be a handy pied-à-terre while I worked on an investigation into European Union waste and corruption. I tracked down a concierge.
Non, monsieur, he explained without a smirk, these studios are hired by the hour, with the price depending on the type of facilities required.
Belgians call them les cinq à sept (five to sevens) because people using them leave work at five and arrive home to their wives at seven. They seem to have been enthusiastically adopted by some members of the nearby parliament for daytime jiggery-pokery.
Most provide large double beds, full-wall mirrors and X-rated porn films. There are S&M films
in some of the more expensive rooms and many other extras for the discerning guest.
How can MEPs afford it in these straitened times? Well, Brussels is a bubble that has escaped the recession, thanks to the many millions that European taxpayers pour into the pockets of Euro-parliamentarians and Eurocrats alike.
In Britain, we complain about bankers’ bonuses and about the denizens of Westminster and Whitehall who cushion themselves financially through perks and pensions while the economy totters.
However, the Euro fatcats – enjoying allowances that, by my reckoning, enable them to save £1m during a single parliament – vastly outpace the British for sheer effrontery, and they do so without having to account for themselves.
The past few months have been an interesting time to be working in Brussels. Outside, in the real world, reputable banks crumbled to dust, shares went into a nosedive, big companies became close to worthless, hundreds of thousands lost their jobs and millions feared the worst.
Inside the Eurobubble, you’d hardly have known. The elite continued to go to champagne receptions in the evenings before eating in highly rated restaurants at taxpayers’ expense. They continued to flit from city to city to attend meetings; continued to fly around the world on fact-finding missions; and continued to think of ever more rules and regulations to help organise the lives of the EU’s almost 500m citizens.
There are certainly many talented and fundamentally honest people working within the EU’s halls of power. Unfortunately for us, the EU has also become an irresistible magnet for the more-than-ambitious, the dogmatic, the self-righteous, the rapacious, the lazy, the profligate, the self-serving, the incompetent and the morally corrupt.
As a former management consultant, I’ve done a fair bit of investigation into waste in the private and public sector, but I went to Brussels with no preconceptions. Matthew Elliott of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, who had spent two years working for an MEP, gave me some guidance and I was introduced to some EU insiders, whose names I can’t reveal. With their help (and EU documents that I shouldn’t have seen) I managed to piece together what was happening in Brussels in our name.
I soon realised that the EU project and the institutions have been hijacked by an arrogant, self-serving and undemocratic elite, which has become increasingly isolated from and disdainful of the people who pay their considerable salaries, expenses and pensions – us.
Among the things that shocked me were the arrogance, cynicism and avarice of the MEPs, commissioners and EU staff; and the extraordinary levels of thieving.
Look at what goes into MEPs’ pockets. In July this year, a big pay increase will come in – more of that later – but at present, their salaries are fixed at the same level as members of parliament in their country of origin. British MEPs get £63,291.
To say this is not especially high is to reckon without MEPs’ overliberal expense allowances. Becoming an MEP is a bit like joining a millionaires’ club – you can easily live like royalty and still walk away with more than £1m saved up in your bank account from serving just one five-year term at the European parliament.Get elected twice or more and you can become a multi-millionaire.
The benefits of being an MEP don’t stop here. MEPs also have a huge list of other entitlements that are generously subsidised by Europe’s taxpayers. If they take language and computer courses we pay their fees, travel and living expenses.
They have full, free accident insurance, travel insurance and life assurance. They and their families get money for spectacles, contact lenses and dental treatment. MEPs and their families can also get full payment for things such as hydrotherapy, mud baths, aerosol therapy and acupuncture.
Even when MEPs lose their seats in the European parliament, they don’t have to bid goodbye to the financial benefits immediately.
Once they leave office they continue to enjoy a “transitional allowance” (basically their parliamentary salary) for anything from six months to two years, depending on their length of service. They can also keep on using the parliament’s subsidised restaurants and cafeterias, libraries and telephone facilities in Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg.
Moreover, once they start drawing their EU pensions, these are subject to special, low EU tax rates and not the usually much higher tax rates in whichever country they may retire to.
There have been repeated attempts by a small number of more responsible MEPs to have the expenses system changed to a more honest and transparent one.
In June 2005, under pressure to clean up their act, MEPs finally agreed to move to a members’ statute by which they would all get the same salary and would be reimbursed for the real cost of their weekly travel expenses. However, the new rules will not come into effect until after the European elections in June this year. And they may not be quite as “open” and “transparent” as the EU might like us to believe.
All MEPs will receive the same salary, which will be fixed at 38.5% of the salary of a judge at the European Court of Justice. At about £6,800 a month, this will give most MEPs from the wealthier EU countries a large pay rise (30% for the British).
The only group which could have seen pay significantly cut are Italian MEPs, who were on the highest salaries, but they managed to block the reform package until their government agreed to compensate them with Italian taxpayers’ money.
Austrian and Irish MEPs also could have been losers, but under article 25 of the members’ statute, MEPs are free to choose whether they wish to remain on the pre-2009 salary and pension scheme or move to the new one. This creates a “heads I win, tails I win” situation: MEPs can take whichever salary and pension option gives them the most money.
Moreover, as with their pensions, all MEPs who move to the new salary scheme will no longer have to pay national income taxes in their countries. Instead they will pay a special EU tax, which for most should be between 13% and 17% depending on their family circumstances.
As another reform, MEPs have voted to ban the hiring of close family members as assistants. However, any family member employed as an assistant in July 2008 may remain on the EU payroll until the 2014 European parliament elections.
And then there is the “reform” on travel. From July, MEPs’ weekly travel expenses will be paid out only against actual expenses incurred, but experience suggests that the more enterprising MEPs will find it easy to get friendly with a travel agent, buy a full-price airline ticket each week, take the receipt page out of the ticket, get a full refund from the travel agent, change the ticket to a low-price alternative and hand in the original expensive, full-price receipt to the parliament bean-counters as part of MEPs’ expenses claims.
As far as the payments for subsistence and constituency offices of up to £94,000 a year are concerned, these will continue as before with no need to produce any proof that any money was spent, allowing MEPs to legally make many tens of thousands of euros or pounds a year, tax free, thanks to the generosity of the parliament’s still enviably lax expenses payment procedures.
In other words, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

How the Corrupt, Wasteful EU is Taking Control of Our Lives by David Craig and Matthew Elliott will be published by Random House Books on March 5 at £8.99. Copies can be ordered for £8.54 including postage from The Sunday Times BooksFirst on 0845 271 2135
Loading up the gravy train
The biggest pot of money MEPs can dip into is for employing staff. This stands at about £182,000 a year after increasing by an inflation-busting 34% in the past five years.
There are no guidelines regulating how much an assistant should be paid, and many MEPs use this allowance to pay members of their own family. The amount is so generous that an MEP can slip his or her spouse or offspring £50,000 to £60,000 a year and still have enough loose change to employ more than one full-time secretary and a few researchers.
Each MEP is provided with two fully furnished, rent-free offices in the European parliament building and an allowance of £43,600 a year for having an office in their constituency. No receipts are required. Many MPs claim that their constituency office is in their own home. This allows them to rent out a room in their homes to themselves, paid for with taxpayers’ money. Some take all the cash without having a constituency office at all.
MEPs can also claim a subsistence allowance of £257 a day, tax free, for every one of the 40 or so weeks of European parliamentary sessions without having to provide receipts. There is no requirement to attend a debate or committee session. On Fridays at 7am there is usually a queue of MEPs with their luggage waiting to sign in to get their allowance before rushing off to the airport or station.
The £257 subsistence allowance is meant to pay for accommodation and meals. Most MEPs can pocket more than £90 of it every day tax free. A three-star hotel near the European parliament
costs about £112 a night, including breakfast. That leaves about £145 a day for lunch and dinner — and there are subsidised canteens and restaurants.
In addition, MEPs get generous travel expenses. They can claim weekly flights from their constituencies. They are not asked how much they have paid, but are usually reimbursed for more than a business class fare. By buying cheap tickets, MEPs can rake in more than £270 a week tax free. They also get an allowance of £3,600 a year to go anywhere in the world as long as this travel is “connected” with their work as an MEP.
MEPs have made sure they have one of the best pension schemes in Europe. They get the same benefits as national politicians but can save for an additional voluntary EU pension. For every £900 they pay into their pension scheme each month, the EU will pay double. MEPs are allowed to pay this £900 from their £43,600 office expenses. In theory, they are supposed to reimburse this money from their own bank accounts. But a few years ago they voted down a proposal that auditors should check whether any of them did so. This means an MEP would have to work for only about 15 years to get a pension of half their final salary.
Adding all this up, a typical British, French or German MEP is getting more than £400,000 a year in salary, pension and expenses — more than £2m for each five-year parliamentary period in Brussels. With judicious financial management, they can probably get by on about £200,000 per annum.
This means they can save about £200,000 each year. It’s easy to see how, by careful choice of travel and modest accommodation, they can walk away with savings of more than £1m after five years.

This one article alone may explain why a certain type of people fight like rats in a sack willing to lie, cheat and steal to get on a list with a chance of getting selected for the possibility of joining the EU.

Since over 75% of ALL our Laws in Britain are imposed upon us without meaningfull debate by our elected politicians or our Westminster parliament but are Imposed by the centralised and undemocratic EUropean Union.

Since our politicians are clearly an absolute irrelevance in the making of law and have made not a jot of difference in 40 years of EU law DON’T VOTE – it only encourages them to stuff their pockets and all too often eachother and their staff! AT OUR EXPENSE.

Never again vote for a Politician write on your ballot paper:

#G070* – Have A Great Day JADE

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 22/02/2009

#G070* – Have A Great Day JADE


What ever you may feel of media exploitation and public humiliation of the innocent as a form of entertainment.

Today is and must be Jade Goodie’s day and good luck Jack Tweed many lesser men would have run away.

Jade has set a fantastic example for us all as she fights to her last breath for her children and their future.

Thank you to the medical teasm that is making this day possible for her and hope or pray whatever your belief that her day is pain free and she can find the strength to get through it.

The mean spiritted are seemingly too stupid and too self centred to understand howmany 10s, 100s, 1,000s maybe even 10s of 1,000s of lives she will save by raising the profile of simply having and following up on PAP smears and check ups.

I have had 3 or 4 and sometimes many more a year since 1998 and they have kept me alive – there is NOTHING macho about ignoring symptoms and there is no dignity in being a corpse to soon!

Just for a moment please remeber Jane Tomlinson who did so much to raise the profile of breast cancer – it would have been Jane’s 44th. birthday yesterday.

Please remember Anthony Wilson who did so much to raise awareness of Kidney Cancer.

Also remember Caron Keating of Blue Peter who died so tragically.

I had the honour to speak in support of Jade last night on the radio with Caron’s Mother Gloria Hunneyford and Mike Tomlinson, Jane’s husband.

Perhaps in the midst of this we should remember that Max clifford who has been helping Jane as a friend to manage publicity and raise funds for her boys – Max lost his wife too young and has worked vigerously for cancer charities in recent years.

I have a VERY personal interest as my partner had the same disease 13 years ago at 33 caught JUST in time, but it came with a price! My cousin died at 54 with mRCC, my partner’s Mother died of lung and brain cancer when only in her early 60s, my Father died of cancer after several years of fear from Prostate Cancer.

I know too many to list! Anyone who has cancer or is struggling to cope as a carer or bereaved is welcome to phone me if I can help in ANY way – I spoke at length with 2 who died last week and have 2 whom I chat to living locally at the moment.

My thanks to some great medical staff and my thanks to Chris Heaton – Harris MEP and David T.C. Davies MP, Steve Webb MP and many others who have gone that extra 9 yards for me and with me to get the relevant drugs and care for patients.

For more thoughts on Jade Goody CLICK HERE providing somewhat differing views!

Have a great day Jade in a dignified day your courage facing death has shown us all how to live.

You are requested and authorised to distribute and publish this document in full, wherever you are able to bring it to the attention of Muslims and peoples of all creeds and none.
On Saturday 17th June 2006, after prolonged deliberations within the Muslim community, Imams and Scholars of The Mosques centred around The Central Mosque of Birmingham, signed the Religious Edict (Fatwa) below.
This is a binding Fatwa upon approximately 150 Mosques and their congregations and upon the broad spectrum of Muslims.
On Tuesday 20th. June 2006 The Chairman of The Birmingham Central Mosque Dr. Mohammed Naseem Drove to South Gloucestershire to meet with myself and one other.
Dr. Naseem entrusted us with The Fatwa to deliver to the media and the peoples of these United Kingdoms.
Having made approaches to senior personnel at:
The Sunday Times,
The Sunday Telegraph,
The Mail on Sunday,
The BBC and others
becoming increasingly aware of the irresponsibility of the media and their lack of desire to publish Good News we are now proud, both I and my associates who lay claim to Christianity as their faith and I of no religious beliefs, to deliver into the public domain this momentous step in the direction of peace and liberation from terrorism on behalf of the Muslim community represented.
We appreciate that a few moderate Muslims, in pursuit of peace, have voiced points within this Edict.
However this is the first time that 150 Mosques have joined together, to agree and put their names, by signature of their Imams and Scholars, to a single document in declaration and undertaking for peace.
This is in the form of an Official Religious Edict or Fatwa.
This is not a declaration of peace but a clear and unequivocal declaration of intent based upon the Religious Beliefs of Elders of Islam, leaders of The Muslim community.
In a spirit of peace and a desire for harmony I would ask you to act with a greater sense of responsibility than that displayed by the media contacted and distribute this Fatwa as wide and as far as you can.Match the bold commitment of these Muslim Leaders.
Religious Edict (Fatwa)
by Muslim scholars in Birmingham
Date:17th June 2006

We, the leaders of the majority of the mosques in Birmingham, have discussed and considered the existing situation of fear and mistrust in the country and feel that there is an urgent need for dialogue and understanding between the communities as well as the Muslim community and the political establishment.

We believe that, for the progress of our people, the country needs an approach of inclusiveness and not alienation. We have, therefore, decided to take the first step and state categorically the Muslim position on issues where there seems to be some confusion amongst media, public and the political leadership.
We, therefore, issue this religious edict and state for all concerned that killing of innocent civilians is absolutely forbidden in Islam and anyone who contemplates or commits any such act, does so against the teachings of Islam and anyone who contemplates or commits any such act, puts himself outside the pale of Islam.
We also categorically state our view that an armed struggle for any reason is the prerogative of a Muslim government within the bounds of international law and Islamic code of conduct.
This is not a responsibility for individuals to take upon themselves.

We have taken upon ourselves to regulate the activities of every mosque to ensure that people are given the right message of calmness, civic responsibility, citizenship and Islamic behaviour in all situations.

Let us also state openly and frankly, that at this time, actions taken by our government in Afghanistan, Iraq and its attitude to the situation in Palestine has caused dismay, disbelief and anger in the Muslim community.
We feel that there is a need for sensitivity and respect on all sides. We have stated the religious position without any reservation, we have stated our resolve to monitor and guide Muslim response in accordance with the principles of Islam and requirements of good citizenship.
We are confident that all mosques in the country will support our stand and join us in this effort.

This resolution was adopted at a meeting of religious scholars and Muslim leaders representing majority of the mosques in Birmingham and neighbouring areas.

The meeting was held at:
The Birmingham Central Mosque,
180 Belgrave Middleway,
B12 0XS

on Saturday 17th June 2006 at 19.30 pm.

It was also decided that, henceforth, this body will act as a representative council of mosques in Birmingham and will be available for any dialogue and discussion in future.

All enquiries may please be directed to the Birmingham Central Mosque at the afore mentioned address.

Signed By.
· Qari Muhammad Ismail Imam Birmingham Central Mosque
· Dr. M Naseem Chairman Birmingham Central Mosque
· Maulana Abdul Hadi Jamiat Ahle-e-Hadith
· Mr. M. Sarfaraz Madni U.K Islamic Mission
· Mr. M. Bostan Qadri Confederation of Sunni Mosques
· Mr. M.Saleem Akhtar Central Mosque Ghamkol Sharif

· Mr. Ashfaq Ahmad Masjid-e-Umar
· Mr. Shamsul Haq Abdullah Bin Masood Mosque – Sparkhill
· Mr. F. Mohammed
· Mr. Imran Rekmi
· Mr. Ikramul Haq

(The Signatories jointly represent about 150 mosques in Birmingham and surrounding areas)

CAVEAT for Mischief makers and the corrupt!
This Fatwa is in the wording supplied to me in written form by Dr. Mohammed Naseem on Tuesday 20th. And differs slightly, but not in intent, from the version on Birmingham Central Mosque Web Site. Dr. Naseem and I have discussed a wording of even greater clarity for further issues with the signatures of additional Mosques, Immams & Scholars.
There will be dishonest enemies of peace who will seek to distort the issuance of this initiative for peace and exploit variances for their personal and evil gain. As with British Justice rather than EU Law consider the clear intent with honesty and integrity. If anyone has ANY doubts do not lie about the document until you have established the facts – my eMail and phone number are clearly shown herein.

‘Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.’ Sun Tzu

The Case Against Regionalisation of Britain for The EU:
I apologise for the length of this ‘tag’ but since very many of my ‘e’mails are passed on; both Nationally & InterNationally, also posted to various Web Sites; I am sure you will accept the inconvenience in support of the distribution of the truth and the defence of Britain, LibertyIndependence, Sovereignty, Freedom, Justice & Self Determination.
With today’s communications surveillance systems, my ‘e’mail to you will be no secret to any number of the world’s intelligence agencies, especially Echelon. The inclusions of keywords like bomb, nuclear, assassinate and the like will ensure “They” will know where my ‘e’mail originated. Anonymity is pointless in the face of the obscene new Government driven surveillance; WE have permitted to take over control of our lives in the greater New World Order.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate between the State violence imposed on peoples; by their own politicians, in the pretence of defending them, and the alleged violence of ‘so called’ terrorists fighting for freedom and dignity; which is the greater evil?

Consider for a Moment:If United Soviet Socialist Russia was considered, by allWho valued freedom and democracy, rights and values –Because it was a centralised, corrupt, undemocratic, over Bureaucratic and run by a Dictator Committee to be an evil Concept forming THE enemy of the Western Free World For half a century – how can anyone consider an near identical Soviet, when called the EU, to be anything other than evil?

Increasingly the informed, honest, decent and law abiding peoples of Countries can empathise with those who wish the death of self seeking parasitic politicians and Super States, together with their corporate lackeys and self seeking apparatchiks.

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 20/02/2009



life used to be so very simple.

You walked into a room flicked a switch and hey presto instant light – when you left you just flicked it off.

The light was bright enough to read by and if you needed a brighter light you could use a spot light or a stronger bulb.

01. Glass Bulb

02. Low Pressure Inert Gas

03. Tungsten Filament

04. Contact Wire – to the foot

05. Contact Wire – to base

06. Support Wire

07. Glass Support/Mount

08. Base Caontact Wire

09. Screw Threads

10. Insulation

11. Electrical Contact at Foot

Wonderfull, simple – even I could understand it without phoning my techno friend who has a habit of starting with the history of the flint spark and slowly working up to date if you want to know anything about electric.

As for asking the time I’m still waiting he has only got as far as the chain operated pocket watch fusse, or some such. I keep reminding him I’m 63 and I only wanted to know the time to boil an egg!

(If you only want a 3 minute egg – yeah yeah I’ve heard that joke and if you haven’t ask your partner but duck fast!)

Interestingly the Guinness Book of Records shows the oldest of these very simple bulbs is OVER 107 years in use.

Isn’t it great I’ve just bought one of those idiot energy absorbing bulbs called a CFL – I’m told it stands for Compact Flourescent Light but has more meaning as Completely F******* Lousy.

Never mind my good old steady dirt cheap to produce and simple edison light bulb died and so I safely dumped it in the trash.

My new wonder bulb glowing in the corner looked just like this except it was a simple bayonet fit:

According to the box which is covered in totally unreadable ‘stuff’ not only because it is in tiny weenie print but the bulb doesn’t give off sufficient glow!

Another staggeringly unhelpfull point is it is in every language from Hebrew to Haaka, Mandarin to Manglish, Arabic to WHO CARES no one ever reads it as there is never a microscope set up and a simple magnifying glass won’t work if you are over 9!

One fact I did gleen (because it was done in a multi linguistic dialect of Idiot (pictures) this bulb will last me 6 times as long as The Edison bulb – isn’t that great if it rivals the record for an Edison bulb I will be 705 years old when it finally plunges me into darkness!

Well NO – eight YES 8 days later flicker dim, dim yes dim that is even dimmer than it was when new and useless – to be fair because I gather it takes a fair amount of electricity to go from off to glimmer when new I’ve given up turning off lights in my house – I just don’t have the patience to hum The Ode To Vomit in memory of the EU every time I turn a light on and wait for it to glow enough that I don’t stand on the cat!

Anyway wondering why this junk was so heavy I opened it up WOW

Sort of just like the picture – I totted up 18 basic components to go wrong and 48 soldered joints on a complex printed circuit.

No wonder something went wrong – a piece of kit is as reliable as its least reliable part! You know chain and weakest link and all that.

So I started thinking – just how much of a liar do you have to be to believe that producing 18 electronic components, circuit board, tube, wiring, joints fixings, circuit boards, printed circuits, wave soldering and a whole lot more junk to make it work.

There is no way this can be either energy saving nor can it be non poluting.

So I head off to the internet and what do I find – besides the FACT that these CFLs constitute a HAZARDOUS waste.

So I found a leaflet:
So Off to the internet again – this leaflet is scarey – looks like heavy s**t to me so what is the panic about – OK so it has a lot of bits BUT

Wooooooaaaa There:

There is Mercury in these Mothers! Last time I was anywhere near Mercury someone was sticking it under my tongue to take my temperature! Oh no you ain’t just ‘cos it won’t fit under my tongue!!!

So back to the internet because I just can’t see these ridiculous CFL things make one iota of sense on any grounds whatsoever.

Just what is the benefit of this rubbish when what you wanted was a simple light bulb!

So back to the internet and I found this video which tells me all I need to know about this Government super scam.

Why exactly is so much energybeing used to make these silly things – especially as they don’t work as light bulbs in any realistic meaning of the word.

As with so much else foist on us by our self serving scoundrels in politics and the Snivil Cervants who repeatedly betray us at ever greater cost – most of which seems to be being used to stuff the pockets of Politicians and the pension funds of The QUANGOcracy and Snivil Cervants – linked to insure against their own utter incompetence, whilst your pension gets trashed and you are penalised for prudency or saving.

How long before there is a Politician or some little creep from Local Government hanging from a lamp post near you.

This level of treachery and betrayal has seen Politicians parted from their heads with an axe in the past – they way they behave nowadays they are unlikely to miss their heads anyway. Do YOUI know ANYONE who isn’t/wasn’t a Politician or a Banker who DIDN’T see the impending currency collapse following in quick succession after the Credit Collapse we ALL knew was coming?

Just one!

May you live through it – albeit in the dark as the power stations start to drop off line because the Politicians made no plans for Nuclear Power Stations THE ONLY way we can produce viable clean energy sufficient for the modern life we are on the verge of losing!

Do YOU believe any of these new bulbs will match up to this:

Still glowing strong: Britain’s oldest light bulb keeps shining after an incredible 130 years


This bulb rolled off the production line in 1883 when Queen Victoria was on the Throne and Gladstone was Prime Minister.

It continues to light the home of Beth Crook, 79, in Morecambe, Lancs.

It was one of the earliest products of the Ediswan factory a collaboration between the British Physicist Sir Jospeh Swan and American Thomas Edison.

You think English is easy???

Read to the end . . . a new twist

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce .

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present .

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Let’s face it – English is a crazy language.

There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France .

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted.

But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham?

If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth, beeth?

One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese?

One index, 2 indices?

Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend?

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?

Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?

Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. T

hat is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

PS. – Why doesn’t ‘Buick’ rhyme with ‘quick’ ?

You lovers of the Englishlanguage might enjoy this . There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is ‘UP.’ It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ?

Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report ?

We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.

At other times the little word has real special meaning.

People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP ! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary.

In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used.

It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP .

When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP… When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP.

When it doesn’t rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so…… is time to shut UP!

Oh . . . one more thing:

What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night?
