#G110* – PILATES, YOGA & POTATO SALAD!

#G110* – PILATES, YOGA & POTATO SALAD!

You may not yet have done your excercises for today – perhaps The Ross Triplets might offer a few ideas for you to try.

The 3 sisters were in a movie
– performing “Solid Potato Salad”
from the 1944 MGM musical Broadway Rythym.

Good luck but make sure you have a good chiropractor
BEFORE you start!

#G109* – Just What IS Politics?


Whether LibLabCon or on the fringes with EUkip, UKFirstParty or English Dummycrats OR on the lunatic fringe with The BNP, Plaid or The Greens:

I think you’ll understand the accuracy and simplicity of this reminder from the distant past!!

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, ‘What is Politics?’

Dad says, ‘Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I am the head of the family, so call me The Prime Minister.

Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.

We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.

The housekeeper, we will consider her the WorkingClass.

And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.

Now think about that and see if it makes sense.’

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night,! he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him.

He finds that the baby has severely soiled his nappy.

So the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother asleep.

Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the housekeeper.
He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning:

The little boy say’s to his father, ‘Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now. ‘

The father says, ‘Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.’

The little boy replies, ‘The prime Minister is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep sh*t.’

It Has Long Been Said Of Politicians:

Politicians are like Nappies and like nappies should be changed frequently for much the same reason!

By way of provenance it is astonishing just howmany of todays Politicians would seem to consider themselves insufficiently honet, if not downright dishonest, and have therefore handed back huge tranches of our money they have stolen and promised to stand down at the next election!

Why do they have a choice? Surely they should have their details handed over to The Metropolitan Police for thorough investigation of exactly howmuch of OUR money they have actually stolen and charge them accordingly before the Courts.

I note a certain Mrs. Jaqui Smith Home Secretary is before Westminster Magistrates Court in Horseferry Road on allegations of Fraud and Money Laundering on 26-Jun-09.

Is the contention that The Met. are too busy shooting and killing people in the streets to perform so menial a task as investigate 642 MPs and 78MPs for Fraudulently conspiring to defraud the tax payers and HMRC – whilst they seem all too willing to harass Motor Cyclists by introducing fees in London as a new tax and taxing motorists in many an imaginitive way.

There is only ONE solution to this problem and that is for the public to take the law into their own hands incrementally – first on 4th-Jun-09 do NOT waste your vote on a politician in either the EU Electoral Scam nor the local elections.

Act with integrity, morality and honour and write on both ballot papers what is in the best interests of our Country, our Future OUR Family & OUR Friends:
LEAVE THE EU
80% of the British peoples want to leave the EU at best or at very least remove the Political Ties, whereby 75% of all our laws are now forced upon us in the interest of France & Germany under the terms of The Treaty of Elysee, to which ONLY they are signators.
More of the laws from which we now suffer, (more laws since 1970 than from 1066 until 1970!) are forced through without debate or consideration by Westminster as either ‘Orders in Council’ or ‘Statutory Instrument’ under the terms of The EUropean Communities Act Section II Part ii.

Withdraw the mandate from Politicians to continue betraying you and OUR Country – let us remind them they work for US. We have seen taxes and costs escalate on both National Terms and Local Government terms and no one in their right mind could claim that goods and services provided have anything but deteriorated.

OUR Costs have escalated no in line with our National Security and border controls, nor in line with our health service with a raft of QUANGOs sheltering our Government from the harsh reality hospitals are dirtier, waiting lists are longer, cancer drugs are witheld to kill patients, our schools have dumbed down standards to cram ever more politicially imposed aspects of Political Correctness into the carriculum, for Communist organisations like The Fabians, Searchlifght, Common Purpose, The Rowntree Trust and their ilk.

Our drains are not kept clear and due to bad planning homes flood in the now undrained flood plains, Garbage mounts ever higher and is dealt with less frequently in sorted heaps at huge cost and no gain ………..

The list is endless – we pay more whilst Politicians deliver less at ever greater cost from ever greater parasitic armies of Political flunkeys in QUANGOs on excessive salaries with over generous pensions – do they make anything, achieve anything or in any way benefit mankind? I can only assume they are merely empowered as a tied salaried vote – terrified of change and honesty squeeling like pigs as they fight to keep their snouts in the troughs!

WITHDRAW THEIR MANDATE

Don’t vote for a politician it is a wasted vote and only encourages them in their arrogant hubris.

Write on YOUR Ballot Paper:
LEAVE THE EU
You know it makes sense and is the ONLY honest vote YOU can make.

#G108* – YOUR CHOICES ARE BEING TAXED & REFUSED.

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 24/05/2009

#G108* – YOUR CHOICES ARE BEING TAXED & REFUSED.

It seems I am far from alone in the certainty that our politicians are not to be trusted – it isn’t just our own politicians or just politicians of our generation – it is just that it is a key plan exploiting us in the last days of freedom, another key locking us away from choice – another denial of our freedoms.

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.

The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP – both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.

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.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.

“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.”
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821),

The people we trust to run our economy and our Country can’t be trusted with their own petty cash – well we all knew that, just look at the mess they have got the Country and the economy in!

TWENTY HIGHEST EXPENSES CLAIMANTS
In WESTMINSTER

Total claims 2005-08 (excluding travel)

Liam Byrne £ 478,536 LABOUR
Joan Ryan £ 469,893 LABOUR
Dan Norris £ 450,985 LABOUR
Shahid Malik £ 446,314 LABOUR

However as Dennis McShane made clear on The Politics show:
Nigel Farage of EUkip as an MEP makes an average wopping
£550.00 a day and has done so every day for 10 years!

Don’t forget his offices are free of charge and much of his staff needs are funded by the pro EU Ind.Dem.Group which he chairs!

This makes even the largest expenses scammer in Westminster look like an amateur!

Now look at the real issue:

NONE of this money is in fact expenses – this is seen as a perk of the job A PART OF THE SALARY – ALLOWANCES which are ALLOWED!

The big battle for MPs and MEPs now is to hide the truth.

MPs & MEPs have been receiving a part of what is seen to be ‘perk’ or salary dishonestly as expenses – This is surely criminal Tax Evasion.

Will each and every MP and MEP receive an assessment for the taxes they have tried to evade?

Will those who do not pay up their taxes thus due be prosecuted?

IF YOU were found to have been paying your salary or a large percentage of it as masquerade ‘expenses’ when they were allowable add ons to your salary – YOU WOULD BE IN COURT BEFORE YOU COULD WHISTLE.

Do not forget that Gorbles Mick has been responsible for this system of conning the tax man for 9 years and The Cabinet and ALL MPs have colluded in the crime for personal gain.

To report Tax Fraud phone: 0800 – 788 887

However due to the number of enquiries relative to MPs there is a special line for Tax Fraud by MPs!

To report MPs & MEPs for tax FRAUD the number is (to be announced tomorrow)

HM Revenue & Customs Tax Evasion Hotline

HMRC is committed to targeting tax evasion. We know some people don’t pay their fair share of tax, which is unfair for the rest of us. Now you can help us do something about it.
The Tax Evasion hotline deals with income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, VAT and National Insurance.
The Hotline can take your call on 0800 788 887 (Lines are open Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am to 4pm), or you can submit a report here.
No information – however trivial it may seem -is too small. It could be the key to stopping fraudulent or criminal activity.

#G106* – YET ANOTHER NEEDLESS POLICE MURDER!

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 12/05/2009

#G106* – YET ANOTHER NEEDLESS POLICE MURDER!

The Behaviour of The British Police Is Morally Reprehensible & Totally Unaccesable.

There is no valid case for an armed Police – to date not one single uninvolved life has been saved by a Police Murder.

A British Police Officer

AND
a Heckler and Koch sidearm (Pistol)

OVER KILL?

Contrary to Popular Belief
This is not British C10 Police dealing with some kids
playing with a fire in a disused industrial site.
This is EUroGendarme or EUroPol
Agents of the new State of EUrope
who increasingly have authority in Britain!
THEY ARE NOT
Servants of the people
THEY ARE A STATE ENFORCEMENT AGENCY!!!

Treaty establishing the Euro Gendarmerie Force: CLICK HERE

EUroGendFor (EUropean Gendarmerie FORCE): CLICK HERE

For details of EUroPol CLICK HERE

Of the law itself – clearly the obscenities of Corpus Juris are to surplant British Law.
You will note in the original documentation of The EU DG de Juste ISBN 2-7178-3344-7 by Mireille DELMAS-MARTY on page 40 paragraph 3 ends: ‘….,designed to ensure, in a largely unified European legal area, a fairer, simpler and more efficient system of repression‘.
It is astonishing how often this new style of State enforcement Law uses the word repression.

Hi,

Yet Another Police Murder:

A witness said “I wouldn’t say he really aimed the crossbow, he was not in the right state of mind to do that. He definitely was not himself.”

Armed officers were called to the rear of a terraced house in Cheapside, Shildon, County Durham, after bolts were randomly fired from a back window before 1am today.

Keith RICHARDS, 47
A Father shot and killed in the home he, it is believed, was about to have repossessed – distressed and possibly drunk at 1am. did not leave the house.
Even a police officer could be expected to know that he was at no risk if he waited for developements out of range or at most fired 1 cannister of CS into the house!
Yet again poorly tained police over reacted in a macho and irresponsible way and the man was MURDERED by armed Police at C01.00hrs.
12-May-2009
PROSECUTIONS: Not based on the normal cover up!

Yet again the Police prove they are not competent to be armed – yet again Police murder a man due to incompetence – yet again the Police carry out a street execution of an innocent man acting as Judge and Jury.

In a Country where no death penalty is permitted by law – why are the Police murdering innocent people? The individuals murdered are without exception innocent victims – not guilty of ANY capital crime as there is no such thing as a capital crime.

There is absolutely no alternative but to define this as murder.

With video cameras and not to mention 24/7 video surveillance of our lives by agents of the STATE a vicious street gang of out of control yobs are repeatedly caught on camera turning up at otherwise peacefull demonstarations to ruin the day and deny the people their right to peacefull protest.

Lest you forget:
Protest is a fundamental human right in a free society – it is the first right to be suppressed by a Police State!

You will note that in yet another film clip it is this gang who with their violent body language and their strident attitudes start fights and cause trouble.

You will note in this clip that a not very large crowd of demonstarators, many with cameras or chatting on mobile phones are gathered, entirely peacably yet when one of the street gang moves along his own lines this shaven headed yob instigates violence by lashing out at one of the crowd.

Meanwhile another of the yobs in black – also notably shaven headed is strutting up and down in body armour concealed largely by a yellow tabard, he is clearly looking for trouble and in frustration at the peacable nature of those around strikes out back handing a young woman to the head, a young woman who barely reaches his shoulder! (this yob seems to strike her twice – gratuitously the big brave bullyboy!) – without any provocation he draws a concealed weapon and starts to strike out at the legs of the woman and those around him although he is at no time threatened.

All too often this street gang turns up at peacefull events and promotes or instigates violence.

Watch live footage of the gang at work: CLICK HERE

It seems that as our Police are increasingly politicised and irrationally armed (see my earlier blogs #G087* & #G001*) – they seem to have forgotten that they are the SERVANTS of the people and not their masters but increasingly as the standard of yob in politics slides inexorably into the gutter from whence so many of them came they form a team of terror that the public who pay their wages increasingly fear – there is little doubt that I am far more likely to die at the hands of my own police or as a result of Political incompetence than at the hands of the largely mythical terrorists who stalk this land!!

As for my demise being as a sacrifice to the New World Order’s New Religion with its bi-polar god we must all worship, that is all too likely. Will it be at the hands of the god ‘Climate Change’ or his alter ego ‘Global Warming’.

NEVER forget that no Government can tax its people if they have nothing to fear and clearly it is the Government we should fear most!

#G105* – SOME THINGS CHANGE

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 10/05/2009

#G105* – SOME THINGS CHANGE
WHILST OTHERS RESOLUTELY REFUSE TO!

Hi,

I was recently reminded of an incident that occurred on a summer bank holiday some 9 years ago before my ops. and it all seems so very long ago.

It did however add a smile or some ire to the breakfast tables of Telegraph readers of the time 😉
Not quite far enough back to have made it into this photograph which is thought to be a Guild parade through Chepstow to commemorate Queen Victorias funeral, though I incline to believe it more likely to be that of Edward VII – it shows my home of the last26 years in the background.
There was much to do when first we took it on – floors were missing, the roof was all but useless and there were squatters in a part of the building that had been walled off across a passage!

The first thing to do was chip off all the lead based Russian Green paint that had been ‘acquired’ by a previous tennant from The Army apprentices at Beachley!
Probably at about the same time that Percy Palmer retiredas Skipper and Skipper Groves had retired to watch the River Wye flow by whilst Ben Brown the last of the skippers on the Severn Ferries left to run The Five Alls on the opposite side of the road to me!

I found the roof one of the hardest parts of the task never having built a roof with slates nor on the curved timbers salvaged in the late 1400s from ships being broken in the Docks at the foot of the hill – as do remember Chepstow has built and launched over 600 ships in its day and between 1790 & 1795 handled a greater recorded tunnage of cargo than Newport and Cardiff put together and was to its last days the centre of the entrepot trade for Bristol, Gloucester & Hereford.

The roof now has some 8 inches of insulation, but is double glazed at the back for Lee’s studio.

The work was conducted, as you can see, under an anti EU banner which The Council & The National Ass for Wales spent some 5 years trying to make me remove! That I had registered The Welsh Assembly as a Company rather wrong footed them and eventually they had to enact an act of Parliament to change the name to its present ones!
We must have done quite a good job as it frequently apeared in art magazines – though I must remind myself artists also seem to favour painting ruins! Sadly as health precludes and not working is not condusive to paying for maintainance it is likely to be a new tennant who will finally restore it!
One has to admit The River Wye at the bottom of the hill is quite spectacular as it passes below the 300 foot cliffs of Windcliff and the double horseshoe bend.

We had eight rooms of books open to the public – it is astonishing how often the illiteratte and the jealous will refer to a book shop as a junk shop in their ignorance! We carried around 60,000 different titles and at one time we had around 20 items in excess of £1,000 in value.
My personal fascinations in terms of print and language were Cuniform Tablets, Parchments pre1300 and incunabulla

Clearly the cat was boss and Lee gave most of her time to restoration of pictures and illustrations on paper pre 1800, besides painting both for pleasure and commission in almost all mediums.

Wales: The old terror lingers here
Byron Rogers gets lost in the back lanes and historic byways of Border country

Last Updated: 11:30AM GMT 05 Feb 2001

‘HENRY MARTEN was in the chancel once but they moved him, for they still thought him dangerous in death’

I do not know his name. All I know is that he was a priest and one May morning, six centuries ago, he stood in front of a small army, assuring the soldiers that all those who fell would that evening sup in Paradise. This was just outside the town Usk in the last war between the English and the Welsh.

Italy earthquake: survivors found but death toll risesBut the day, as usual, turned against the Welsh, and the priest was seen slipping quietly away. He was taunted by the soldiers who asked why he was not waiting with them to share the celestial banquet. And this remarkable man responded by saying that it was one of his fast days.

It is a moment of such black humour, you know it happened: men shouting, horses squealing, the arrows coming out of the sky. Which is why, on a hot September afternoon, I am climbing a steep hill on a lane out of Usk that leads up past the castle. I am looking for someone who had his finest moment on the battlefield of the Yellow Pool (Y Pwll Melyn).

It was a turning point in the rising of Owen Glyndwr, when in May 1405, the defenders rushed out of the castle to overwhelm his besieging army, killing his brother and taking his son prisoner. It was, according to local folklore, some kind of running battle. But where?

Some place names survive, such as Monkswood, on the outskirts of Usk, where Glyndwr’s son, trying to escape, was taken. But where was the Yellow Pool? The castle was the clue. A surprise counter-attack, the besiegers falling back to the nearest strongpoint to make a stand. Of course, the hill behind the castle itself . . .

It is a beautiful afternoon, Usk falling away beneath us, the castle in the trees, the town square a mass of flowers, and, beyond these, the grim Victorian outline of the jail which is still a jail. We come to the old farm on top of the hill, but the lady renting the farmhouse says she has never heard of a Yellow Pool.

We walk on for about 30 yards and stand, looking at the hills behind the hill. On our left is a thicket of trees, so dense I do not at first notice the dark hollow in their midst. But when I walk round I see this patch of mud in shadow, at the centre of which is a small pond. My daughter picks up a stone and throws it, and there is more of a slapping sound than a splash.

“Grab her,” I shout, but it is too late, for we have forgotten that one among us would follow a stone into the mouth of hell. The Jack Russell is already in the mud.

“We’ve got nothing to clean her with,” I say. The dog is covered in mud, an odd mud, a very light colour. My wife says nothing, she is pointing. “Don’t you realise where we are?”

We were in that strange Border area which people forget about, where the lower Wye forms the frontier between England and Wales, and which motorists skirt at speed, on the A40 in the north and the M4 in the south. For 40 years I’ve done this myself, wondering where the turn-offs went. Only this time I had followed them.

And we were walking through the streets of Chepstow, an old town torn apart by a modern bypass which has left its lower streets a wasteland of traffic and car parks. But the most remarkable bookshop in Britain survives, as does its owner, Greg Lance-Watkins, pigtailed and embattled. Mr Lance-Watkins of Glance Back Books is a man who hates church bells, the European Union and the Welsh Assembly.

But in change-ringing circles men talk of him with awe, for this was the man who stopped a peal of bells. He climbed above the ringing chamber and held on to the ropes like Quasimodo, something which might have brought the bells down on his head. The fighting starting on the belfry stairs, spilled out and into his bookshop, and then into the streets of Chepstow as the “anoraks”, as he calls them, tried to effect a citizen’s arrest.

But this is also a man who stocks Rupert annuals, and on his shelves has ones you normally see only in catalogues, books no children coloured in, which cost upwards of £100 to the rarest of all in four figures. Mr Lance-Watkins has passed into the private mythology of my family.

Little has changed – I still hate the destruction of our Country, our membership of the odious and undemocratic EU, the idiocy of pretence that is devolution and the ghastly intrusive clatter of church bells which have absolutely no musical merit and might as well be replaced by a siren or a messuins tower to call the superstitious to their pennance!

The greatest change has been the closing of our shop, the destruction of the town as it was made more erzats by Councillors seeking to display their bad taste and impramature with other peoples money in the pretence of EU Grants and ‘regeneration’ – one only needs to see the outcome both visually and in terms of commerce, both for tourists and for residents to understand just how destructive and vile was their DEGENERATION of our town.

#G104* – PHOTOGRAPHS

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 10/05/2009

#################
ANNOUNCEMENT IF I MAY:

Anyone who believes that I may use a picture of them on my Blogs please supply me with 2 or more photos of themselves which they wish to have used.

Never do I wish to deliberately use unflattering, inaccurate or copyright material but clearly there are the dishonest who seek to profit by duplicitous claims of copyright, whether from greed, impecunity or mallevolence it seems impossible to tell.

#G103* – ANOTHER POLICE MURDER ADDED!

A British Police Officer

armed with a multi shot Heckler and Koch MP5 patter A2
AND
a Heckler and Koch sidearm (Pistol)

OVER KILL?

Hi,

Yet Another Police Murder:

Mervyn TUSSLER, 64
An old age pensioner alone in his flat in a luxury old peoples sheltered housing complex in Fernhurst, Sussex. Murdered by armed Police at 14.20hrs.
08-Dec-2009
PROSECUTIONS: Not based on the normal cover up!

With video cameras and not to mention 24/7 video surveillance of our lives by agents of the STATE a vicious street gang of out of control yobs are repeatedly caught on camera turning up at otherwise peacefull demonstarations to ruin the day and deny the people their right to peacefull protest.

Lest you forget:
Protest is a fundamental human right in a free society – it is the first right to be suppressed by a Police State!

You will note that in yet another film clip it is this gang who with their violent body language and their strident attitudes start fights and cause trouble.

You will note in this clip that a not very large crowd of demonstarators, many with cameras or chatting on mobile phones are gathered, entirely peacably yet when one of the street gang moves along his own lines this shaven headed yob instigates violence by lashing out at one of the crowd.

Meanwhile another of the yobs in black – also notably shaven headed is strutting up and down in body armour concealed largely by a yellow tabard, he is clearly looking for trouble and in frustration at the peacable nature of those around strikes out back handing a young woman to the head, a young woman who barely reaches his shoulder! (this yob seems to strike her twice – gratuitously the big brave bullyboy!) – without any provocation he draws a concealed weapon and starts to strike out at the legs of the woman and those around him although he is at no time threatened.

All too often this street gang turns up at peacefull events and promotes or instigates violence.

Watch live footage of the gang at work: CLICK HERE

It seems that as our Police are increasingly politicised and irrationally armed (see my earlier blogs #G087* & #G001*) – they seem to have forgotten that they are the SERVANTS of the people and not their masters but increasingly as the standard of yob in politics slides inexorably into the gutter from whence so many of them came they form a team of terror that the public who pay their wages increasingly fear – there is little doubt that I am far more likely to die at the hands of my own police or as a result of Political incompetence than at the hands of the largely mythical terrorists who stalk this land!!

As for my demise being as a sacrifice to the New World Order’s New Religion with its bi-polar god we must all worship, that is all too likely. Will it be at the hands of the god ‘Climate Change’ or his alter ego ‘Global Warming’.

NEVER forget that no Government can tax its people if they have nothing to fear and clearly it is the Government we should fear most!

We will stockpile as many as we can in September when production is supposed to stop in the EU so that we can continue to supply what our customers want.
