Public money the key to stopping Islamic entryism

To cut the head off the Islamic Medusa that is abusing public money to turn state schools into Madrassas is on the face of it quite simple; cut off the public money. Muslims are quite free to raise private funds to set up either Academies or their own schools, so long as these meet minimum national educational standards, as are those of any other faith. The UK must be the only nation stupid enough to fund the very ideology that is undermining our old freedoms. 

Islamic entryism is not just about segregating boys and girls - a glance at the walled perimeter of any old Victorian school with its separate gates for infants, and junior girls and boys, will reveal we used to do the same in less enlightened days. No. Like many 'Skopes Monkey' schools in the American deep south, Islam rejects Darwin and teaches kids they are living on a world made 4000 years ago by divine creation. And other more pernicious things. 

Whilst a multi-ethnic society brings many benefits and strengths to our nation, a multi-cultural one does not. There is a vital difference. Immigrant communities must embrace British culture, which is open to all irrespective of race or creed. As I've said before, multi culturalism is a doctrine of evil, and is no more than Apartheid in a posh frock. Islamic entryism in state schools promotes a separate and divisive culture and must therefore be eradicated.

Ukraine - FAQs

Just picking up a few of the questions that appear in the MSM this week; 

IMF in Ukraine - Mr Nice or Nasty?(BBC) - As the emerging Balkan states have found, the IMF is like a payday loan shark on a global scale. Ukraine will sign the form to get the money to meet this week's state paybill, and will only later regret signing away its ability to make decisions about its own economy. The IMF means global servitude. 

Is Moscow orchestrating eastern Ukraine's little green men? (BBC) - Of course. Russian 'advisors' are probably ultra-careful to disappear when the news cameras turn up, but the orchestrated sequence of occupations in Donetsk and Luhansk, and now in Kharkhiv, indicate a strategic mind at work rather than spontaneous popular actions. 
 
Has the idle West let Putin win?(Telegraph) - It's not the west's idleness that has led to the loss of Crimea, and possibly the eastern provinces, but the west's stupidity in believing they could drive their tanks onto Russia's lawn with impunity. 

Why have a fight over east Ukraine? - The east has the industry and natural resources, including 2 trillion cubic metres of frackable gas. Look at Timoshenko's corruptly acquired portfolio, and those of her fellow Ukrainian oligarchs - it's their vast wealth, much of tied up in the east of the country, that they're keen to protect; they will lay down the lives of their Ukrainian subjects for the sake of their Swiss bank accounts.

Will the crisis lead to World War Three? - Hopefully not. However, the US, EU and Russia are on course to turn it into a vicious proxy war, with both sides pouring in arms, equipment and intelligence. Good for the global corporations, useful for each side to test out its newest technologies but of course ruinous for the folk that live there and who just want to get on with their lives. 

Who can I believe about what's going on? -  No-one. Both the west and Russia are effectively churning out propaganda that easily fools the majority of inexperienced journos. As Richard North has pointed out, the crisis is being reported by muppets who can't tell the difference between a battle tank and an APC, and for whom every AK74 is an AK47.  

Seamus Milne gets close to an accurate summary of the situation in the Guardian today;
The reality is that, after two decades of eastward Nato expansion, this crisis was triggered by the west's attempt to pull Ukraine decisively into its orbit and defence structure, via an explicitly anti-Moscow EU association agreement. Its rejection led to the Maidan protests and the installation of an anti-Russian administration – rejected by half the country – that went on to sign the EU and International Monetary Fund agreements regardless.

No Russian government could have acquiesced in such a threat from territory that was at the heart of both Russia and the Soviet Union. Putin's absorption of Crimea and support for the rebellion in eastern Ukraine is clearly defensive, and the red line now drawn: the east of Ukraine, at least, is not going to be swallowed up by Nato or the EU.

ECJ just a Commission shill

The ECHR, as I've said before, is no competent judicial tribunal but merely an overstuffed collection of judicially unqualified EU bureaucrats who have been given the key of the dressing-up box. In their clownish recently-invented 'historical' costumes these politicians-in-disguise have sought to impose not justice but a single euro-social-democratic social agenda.

Similarly, as Ambrose very effectively explains in the Telegraph this morning, the ECJ is neither European, a proper Court nor a fount of Justice. It is nothing but a shill for the 11 Eurozone states. The more the ECHR enforces free movement of labour, the more the ECJ is restricting the free movement of capital. They make up the rules to suit themselves, these people. And that means they are making a concerted attempt to dis-empower Britain. 

The City is much more than just the bent bankers; insurance and reinsurance, foreign exchange, the London metals exchange, marine, cargo, freight and ship broking, the stock exchange, commodities; and all the tech innovation and support that makes international capital flows work - the software, security systems, transaction protocols and so on. And all underpinned by a tradition of self-regulation and trust that even the financial pillage and depredations of the crooked global banks couldn't trash.

Farage, for all his faults, understands the beating heart of the City from the trading floor, viscerally. Osborne may don white tie once a year for an outsider's visit to Mansion House, but Farage is there as an insider, as of right. After 1666 we had the choice to rebuild the City in the European fashion, with wide boulevards and pompous monuments, on a 'rational' plan. Instead we recreated what was there before, with all its crooked alleys, dark courts and winding passages, its streets taking the lines of cow-tracks made in Saxon days. The City remains uniquely British; even the Luftwaffe failed to eradicate its historic form. Europe's jealousy that we've made the world's financial centre in Britain, and their determination to destroy it, is surely reason enough to vote UKIP on May 22nd.

Boris Johnson supports Farage 'twin tracking'

If Nigel Farage decides to stand for Patrick Mercer's old seat whilst keeping his job as an MEP, he will enjoy full support from an unexpected quarter; Boris Johnson is firmly supportive of the ability of politicians to hold both posts together. 

"There is no reason why MPs should not take on this duty (sitting as MEPs): they are well used to sitting on Bill committees. They have the time" Wrote Johnson in the Telegraph two days ago.

Glad that's clear, then.

Schröder flips Ashton & Kerry the bird

Former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder has just jabbed a straight middle finger in the air at EU and US attempts to escalate the situation in Ukraine by inviting President Putin to a glittering 70th birthday bash in St Petersburg. The colleagues are incandescent with rage and are spitting blood at the black-tie pictures of the two men hugging, but are powerless to silence the unmistakeable gesture from the German Statesman. 

Schröder is no shrinking violet. His savage trimming of the German welfare system and ground-breaking deployment of German troops in Kosovo and Afghanistan demonstrate his strength, as did his absolute refusal to have anything to do with Blair and Bush's unlawful military adventure in Iraq - thereby saving Germany from the sort of political disgrace that continues to overshadow Britain's Labour Party.

Neither is Schröder uncritical of Putin; he can have few illusions that Putin is other than a despot in the true Russian tradition. However, his powerful gesture was guaranteed to infuriate the unelected EU leadership - and show that there's more than one side to this particular story. And demonstrates just how powerful a small gesture can be from someone of his stature. He really does make Cameron look and sound like a puerile pygmy. 

A pair of gurus

You wait around for ages for a new change guru and then two turn up at once ... typical. For reference, two names new to me that I'll be taking a look at;

David Birch - Identity is the new money - said something very interesting just now about Bitcoin; the new currency thing isn't the important thing; it's the algorithms for a distributed ledger system that are potentially ground breaking

and Jeremy Rifkin on Start the Week yesterday "who foresees the gradual decline of capitalism and the rise of a collaborative economy. As new technology enables greater sharing of goods and services, Rifkin argues that it provides a challenge to the market economy. The sociologist Saskia Sassen warns that the majority of people may not enjoy the fruits of this new world as increasing inequality, land evictions and complex financial systems lead to their expulsion from the economy."

Like good old Alvin Toffler (for those of us from the 1970s) its likely they'll have the change process right but the consequences wrong. Still, worth getting a heads-up. 

Kier Starmer finally gets his article published

After three attempts, Kier Starmer today finally managed to get his article published in the Guardian;
"The verdicts in the Dave Lee Travis Bill Roache Nigel Evans Max Clifford case mark an important moment for our criminal justice system. For years, victims of sexual offending felt they had no chance of success if they were up against a celebrity. Let us not forget that although the vast majority of Jimmy Savile's victims lacked the confidence to come forward during his lifetime, four did. But, in the end, each of them felt they could not, alone, take on someone of his then popularity."
Only four MPs have been sent to prison as a result of the greatest mass-theft in Parliamentary history, and no bankers at all have been jailed for trashing the nation's finances. Blair and his war crim cronies remain at large, NHS managers responsible for scores of deaths are enjoying their retirement and not one policeman has been indicted for the dozens of deaths in custody. But we can be assured that Kier Starmer will let no bottom-pincher go unprosecuted.

Brave Italian wren-killers

No wonder the Italians have such a reputation for cowardice. At this time of year Italian 'hunters' flock to Malta, dressed in heavy-duty hunting gear of the sort that a German might don to do battle with a wild boar, and armed with 12 and 16 bore guns; their quarry is, er, small garden songbirds. Mostly finches. Anything bigger is considered dangerous by Italian hunters; they fear being pecked on the ankle by the fearsome pheasant, and will run from a pigeon. Also, they can't shoot very well - so rather than taking flying birds (which are too small to see) they 'hunt' exhausted finches as the birds sit resting on branches from their non-stop flight from Africa.

Hail the mighty virile Italian hunter! Killer of sparrows! He triumphs over wrens! Huzzah!


Lenny Henry - a True Brit Luvvie

I last saw Lenny Henry live at Wimbledon theatre, where he turned out a light entertainment one-man show that was a pleasant enough to pass away an hour or so. He's nice, which is why he gets parts advertising hotel beds rather than parts as a psycho gang drugs murderer. He also turns out a passable Othello, which despite Desdemona's fate is an OK part for a nice bloke. Lenny is a True Brit luvvie - competent, workmanlike, reliable, but with an annoying whine to the press from time to time.

Lenny's latest complaint is that (I think) despite being 15% of the UK's population, ethnic people only have 5% of actor-hours on the telly. Well, I don't watch much telly, but I'm not going to let that stand in the way of expressing an opinion. Which is that telly is make-believe. East Enders if true to life would be very different to the screen fiction. It's a nostalgic reminder of 1950s working class solidarity, the Blitz and a mythical articulate, intelligent white populace. The reality is the moronic wastes of space from TOWIE - the East End moved to Romford many years ago.

In fact the African film industry is now making very slick and competent TV drama, and I predict it won't be long before soaps such as Shuga (see vid) are being transmitted on UK TV - with all black casts. But sadly with no parts for Mr Henry.

Blair 'Demented'

Patrick Cockburn in the Indie this morning rightly calls Blair's support of the Sunni Islam side in the Moslem civil war 'demented'. Just as well that absolutely no-one believes a word that Blair says anymore, then. But I think there's more than the dead Blair's Lazarus-like self-resurrection from his police protected exile from justice; he's a man still (rightly) denied national honours - though the Septics have given him a medal as a consolation prize - looking for big cash donations for the Blair Foundation to establish his legacy. Who better to butter-up than the despotic, mad tyrants who run Saudi Arabia? There's simply no-one on the Shia side with the sort of money Blair craves. Or in the amounts needed to counter the depths to which his reputation has sunk.

Blair's lunatic belief that Wahhabism is somehow better than the intolerance of the Iranian Ayatollahs is beyond understanding; what sort of joyless, sanctimonious world in which people have bits chopped-off for thinking the wrong thoughts does Blair imagine is a good thing? Of course if he's got a scrap of sanity remaining he doesn't. Just watch from where the next big donations to his ego-fund come.
