Terror In Manchester, Today Is Not A Day For Politicking

This morning we all woke up to the terrible news of children and their parents being killed at a concert in Manchester.
I won't say who the artist was as she feels bad enough as it is.

News rolled out as more casualties and deaths unfolded.

As the day has worn on, the usual apologists have come out in sympathy for members of a faith, calling people racist for decrying the faith of the perpetrator. The perpetrator was Muslim, followed his interpretation of the Quaran, so he is nothing else and can be nothing else except for a muslim.

Also Islam is not a race just as much as Christianity is not one.

Another bug bear of mine is all the loons crying out Christianity, our Christian country etc.
Religion is the cause of this atrocity, go on stoke the fire with you sudden found faith.
Well done.

All the usual pray for whatever hashtags etc. are out in force.

The only one I agree with is the " We Stand With Manchester" one, as a whole I would think most of us would and do feel united behind their struggle today.

On one thing though the country has united behind is the no political campaigning today. I totally agree with that, although many are flaunting that tenement in anger, most have stuck to it.

My one hope is that science and reason will be taught to a degree where people become enlightened, stop all the hatred about religion and stop the racism, be it casual or with menace.

Fighting over whos deity is the best and what wording should be interpreted from books written thousands of years ago is just madness.

We are all human, we should be treated equal, we should not be subjugated by others.

We should have the right to control what is ours, who runs our countries and who we choose to make our laws.

We should not have things forced on us like open door migration, it doesn't happen anywhere else apart from those within the EU.

We should not be forced into poverty by our governments being forced to bail out others all the time.

We should be looked after by our government and not put at the back of the que in the name of social justice.
Social justice warriors do not realise they are committing unsocial acts by forcing others to go against the grain for the satisfaction of people who just want free stuff.

I really do hope the enlightenment comes through science and nature so we do not have to listen to people fighting over fairy tales and mythical beings in the sky.

My piece here is written by me and is my opinion only.
Do not try and link it to others or UKIP.

UKIP Welcome Top Tory Doctor As Candidate

A patriot and long standing Brexit supporter, Dr Khong, joins United Kingdom Independence Party

An elected member of Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, Councillor Dr Teck Khong resigned from the Conservative Party on 29th April 2017.

Please give him a warm welcome and lets show him a UKIP united and friendly atmosphere to push the Brexit agenda that is needed to make Britain Great again.

Why should we pay it EU? You owe us.

It seems the team behind EUmafia.EU are trying to sway the elections and trying to bully the UK.

They have upped the fantasy bill to a whopping 100 billion Euro.

They seem to forget that for years Britain has been the second largest contributor to the EU budget, our tax payers pounds have paid for lots of EU assets, including the majority input to the building of the EU parliament buildings, roads in the eastern bloc and many other silly things such as the hefty wage packet and pensions for the unelected twonks that are now trying to come up with ways to cause fear and division in the UK.

Here's the thing, we are not going to be swayed, nor will the people of the UK be browbeaten into submission by a bunch of fools that are angry because they have to put more money into the pot to keep the chaotic project EU going.

Yes you, France and Germany.

Merkel and Hollande should shut the hell up.
1. Because they are gone this year, either voted out or not wanted.
2. We don't care what you think.
3. There is no legal precedent under international law that they could force us into paying.
4. They have more to lose if we just say Bye Bye.
5. Their whining is just getting boring now.

Heres a piece from the biased Beeb.

Brexit: UK will 'not pay €100bn divorce bill' says Davis

The UK will not pay a €100bn (£84.6bn) "divorce bill" to leave the EU, Brexit Secretary David Davis has insisted.
He told ITV's Good Morning Britain the UK would pay what was legally due, "not just what the EU wants".
It comes amid claims by the Financial Times that the financial settlement sought by the EU has risen from €60bn.
Mr Davis said the UK treated its EU "rights and obligations" seriously but it had "not seen any number", adding the EU was playing "rough and tough".
The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier is due to publish his guidelines for the talks later although they are not likely to include any financial demands.
An EU source has told the BBC that officials in Brussels will not enter into a discussion about potential figures for a final bill, likely to be one of the hardest-fought and most sensitive areas of the Brexit process.

Mr Davis said the negotiations had not started in earnest but indicated the UK would set down a marker when it came to talks over the divorce settlement.
"We are not supplicants," he said. "This is a negotiation. They lay down what they want and we lay down what we want."
Various figures had been knocking around, he said, but asked directly whether a figure of €100bn was acceptable, he replied: "We will not be paying €100bn."

Brexit Secretary David Davis tells Today EU nationals can expect "generous settlement"

He added: "We will do it properly. We will take our responsibilities seriously. What we've got to do is discuss in detail what the rights and obligations are.
"We have said we will meet our international obligations, but there will be our international obligations including assets and liabilities and there will be the ones that are correct in law, not just the ones the Commission want."

'Pinch of salt'

He subsequently told the BBC that the €100bn figure should be viewed "with a pinch of salt" and the negotiations would not "end up there", adding that it was up to the two sides to agree and he did not want the European Court of Justice to become involved.
Many Conservative MPs argue the UK does not owe the EU anything given the size of the contributions it has made over the past 40 years. A recent report by a House of Lords committee argued the UK was not legally obliged to pay a penny although to do this would threaten any chance of a post-Brexit trade deal.

If the UK was to walk away without a deal, Mr Davis conceded that it would not owe anything but he insisted "nobody was seeking that outcome".
"We want a deal. We think we can get a deal that is beneficial to everybody" he told Radio 4's Today.
The EU has insisted that the UK will have to accept liabilities stemming from its membership, including contributions to the EU Budget. The EU has already listed some sort of agreement on a payment from the UK as a precondition for opening talks on a trade deal.
Previous calculations had placed the financial settlement likely to be demanded by the EU at between 50 and 60bn euros. The Financial Times, using the same economic model with new data from around Europe, suggests that has now gone up to 100bn euros.

'Gossip and spin'

There are reports in Brussels that the difference might include demands from countries like France and Poland for UK contributions to farm subsidies. The EU may also be planning to refuse to allow the UK a share of the EU's assets including buildings and bank deposits.
The suggestion that the payment would be made in instalments would not do much to soften the blow from the British perspective, the BBC's Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly said.
The revelation comes amid growing tensions between the UK and EU following reports of a dinner in Downing Street last week, in which European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is said to have told Theresa May that Brexit could not be a success.
On Tuesday, Mrs May said Mr Juncker would discover that she could be a "bloody difficult woman".
Mr Davis, who was one of ten people present at the dinner, said accounts of the meeting were "gossip and spin" and while there were some differences in key areas, the atmosphere had been "constructive" rather than hostile.
While the process was currently in a "rough and tumble" phase of manoeuvring, he believed a "generous settlement" could be reached over the status of EU nationals living in the UK and Britons living on the continent which guaranteed "pretty much exactly" the same rights they enjoy at the moment.
This, he said, could be done in the form of an "exchange of letters" between the two sides pending the revision of existing EU Treaties.

Cheeky Drunker and Herr Merkel Are The Deluded Ones

The following story is mitigating proof that the EU hierarchy are not going to play ball and Merkel is privy to things we are not.

I am of the opinion we should just walk away and work and trade under WTO rules.

The EU will soon come running when the trade surplus money runs out.

Jean-Claude Juncker says Theresa May is 'deluded' in scathing call with Angela Merkel after Brexit talks

The European Union has warned that it is "more likely than not" that Brexit talks will fail after Jean Claude Juncker accused Theresa May of being "deluded" in the wake of a tense Downing Street dinner .
The President of the European Commission, launched a scathing attack on Mrs May after the meeting on Wednesday last week, the  German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung  reported.
He reportedly claimed during the meeting that Brexit "cannot be a success" and threatened to end talks without a trade deal if Britain refuses to pay a "divorce" bill.
The Prime Minister said that the UK is not legally obliged to pay the EU anything as it leaves the EU. Mr Juncker and his colleagues responded by saying that Britain cannot simply cancel its membership of the EU as if it was a "golf club".
EU officials accused Mrs May of viewing Brexit through "rose-tinted glasses" after she said "let us make Brexit a success". Mr Juncker insisted: "This cannot be a success."
The pair also clashed over EU migrants as Mrs May pushed for an early deal during negotiations. The European Union's representatives said they were "astonished" by Mrs May's push for it to be sorted "by the end of June".
Mr Juncker suggested that this timetable was "too optimistic", pulling out of his bag "two piles of paper" - Croatia's EU entry deal and Canada's free trade deal - to highlight how complex talks are likely to become.
The most tense talks came over Britain's Brexit divorce bill. The European Union is calling on the EU to pay up to £50billion to fulfill its obligations to the EU.
Mrs May reportedly insisted that the UK is not legally obliged to pay the EU anything, which appears to have prompted an angry response. Mr Juncker suggested that without paying a divorce bill Britain would be unable to secure a future trade deal.
After the meal Mr Juncker called Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, saying that Mrs May was "living in another galaxy" and "deluding herself".
His call led to Mrs Merkel publicly warning that Britain was suffering from "illusions" about Brexit. Mrs May subsequently highlighted her comments and said that EU nations were "lining up" to oppose Britain and that talks would be "tough".
The European Union also appeared to reject calls by Mrs May for talks to remain confidential. The Prime Minister called for negotiations to be held in monthly, four-day blocks which would remain confidential until the end of the process.
The European Commission said that this would be "impossible" given the need to consult member states and the European Parliament over discussions. "All documents must be published," the report suggested.

Burka ban? What burka ban?

The media have been falling over themselves to condemn UKIP's proposed burka ban. There's just one problem: it's not a burka ban.

The party revealed its integration policy a few days ago which called for a ban on covering your face in public, mandatory checks for FGM on at-risk girls, an end to Sharia courts, abolishing postal voting on demand and making the "honour" in honour killings and the race or religion of grooming gangs (if different to the victims) an aggravating factor.

The policy that has caused most controversy is the proposed ban on covering your face in public. Clearly the burka is one of the face coverings that would be affected by such a ban but so too would masks, scarves and bandannas that are a common sight at violent protests. The reason for the proposed ban is partly to promote integration and partly for security reasons. Only this week a burka-wearing terrorist suspect was shot by police during a raid. Face coverings are banned in Austria, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and in some parts of Denmark, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania and Spain. UKIP's policy would require everyone to ensure that their faces can be seen in public.

Female Genital Mutilation has been illegal in the UK since 1987 yet there has been just one attempted prosecution and that failed because the doctor in question hadn't actually performed the FGM. In France girls who are at risk of FGM are checked by doctors to ensure they haven't been mutilated. The zero tolerance approach in France has seen more than 100 people go to prison for mutilating girls and a small number of prosecutions have also been secured in the Netherlands, Italy and Denmark. UKIP's policy would not only introduce medical checks for at risk girls but it would place a legal obligation on all adults report FGM if they are aware of it and introduce a presumption of prosecution of parents, putting an end to the unacceptable blind eye the police turn to it.

Sharia courts and tribunals have no place in our legal system. They are discriminatory toward women and undermine the principle of us all being equal before the law. Despite many attempts by politicians and academics to portray Sharia courts as benign organisations advising the faithful on religious matters, they have remained stubbornly problematic and a government report is due to be published this year on the misuse of Sharia courts and their incompatibility with English law.

Postal voting on demand has caused a fraud epidemic that seriously undermines the democratic process and it nearly always involves Muslim communities and is usually for the benefit of the Labour Party. There have been numerous prosecutions for postal vote fraud, including the infamous Lutfur Rahman seeing his mayoralty of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets annulled by a special election court and his party banned. People involved in elections all over the country will have their own stories of blatant postal vote fraud yet the system remains open to abuse. UKIP's policy is to return to the previous system of only issuing postal votes to those who need them because they are unable to attend a polling station.

Between 2010 and 2014 there were 11,000 "honour crimes" reported to the police in the UK and an estimated 12-15 "honour killings" every year. Yet when prosecutions are pursued the fact that it has been done in the name of religion has no bearing on the punishment. Sexual grooming of young girls is an increasing problem and again, one that most commonly involves Muslim communities but disproportionately targets young white girls as their victims. UKIP's policy would require the courts to treat the racial and/or religious aspect of these crimes as an aggravating factor and increase the punishments accordingly.

Back in 2011 an army recruitment video was broadcast on TV showing an irate man facing up to a soldier. He calms down when the soldier removes his sunglasses because "army officers worldwide have learnt that eye contact is crucial in gaining trust".

Allowing the facial covering policy to be wrongly portrayed as a ban on the burka was clumsy and unhelpful. People should be free to wear what they choose but it is sometimes necessary to curtail such liberties when the risk of domestic and international terrorism is so high. Whether there should even be such a thing as an "integration policy" rather than rolling these rather sensible policies into more conventional policy areas like communities and local government or justice and home affairs is debatable. It certainly doesn't need to be a flagship policy in a snap general election when there is next to no time to correct the mistruths and deliberate misrepresentations before polling day. But despite all that, they are (on the whole) sensible policies designed to make the country safer and to promote community cohesion.

Paul Nuttall will stand in Boston & Skegness

Paul Nuttall has announced that he will be contesting the staunchly eurosceptic seat of Boston & Skegness in the upcoming general election.

Boston & Skegness returned the highest Brexit vote in the referendum with 75.6% of voters voting to leave the EU. In theory this is a perfect seat for UKIP to contest with most voters backing the party's stance on the EU, a Remain-supporting MP and UKIP's 10 councillors forming the official opposition on Boston Borough Council. But the two parliamentary by-elections that followed the referendum have shown that a Leave vote doesn't equal a UKIP vote and whilst a strong presence on local councils clearly translates into more votes in parliamentary elections it isn't enough. It will be an uphill battle for Paul Nuttall despite UKIP's relatively strong presence in the constituency.

Video: UKIP's general election campaign launch

Five arrested on terrorism charges in London and Kent

Police arrested a man on terrorism charges yesterday in Whitehall, a couple of hundred yards from the House of Commons.

The man was known to the police and was stopped and searched as part of an ongoing operation. He was found to have a rucksack full of knives. He was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism.

Meanwhile, a woman has been shot by police during an anti-terrorism raid elsewhere in London. Three people - a man, a woman and a 16 year old male - were arrested on suspicion of preparing to to carry out a terrorist act and another woman was arrested in Kent as part of the same operation. Police say these raids were unrelated to the arrest in Whitehall.

The police have yet to confirm that the suspects are all mentally ill.

The suspect is arrested by police

Paul Nuttall will stand in general election but where?

Paul Nuttall has ended several days of media speculation and confirmed that he will be standing in the impending general election.

Nuttall told journalists on Monday that he hadn't decided whether to stand or not which led many to believe that the disappointing result in Stoke in February had put him off trying to become an MP. However, he has confirmed that he will be standing but has not yet revealed which seat he will contest.

Boston & Skegness seems to be the popular choice with the pundits and with UKIP's former PPC for the seat, Robin Hunter-Clarke, opting to stand in Pontypridd this time round (he's Chief of Staff to the UKIP group in the Welsh Assembly) there would appear to be a vacancy in a seat that produced a very strong UKIP vote in 2015. However, Paul Nuttall is due in Hartlepool on Saturday morning where the unveiling of UKIP's candidate for the seat has been promised. Could Nuttall be the mystery PPC?

UKIP calls for compulsory checks of girls at risk of FGM

UKIP's women and equality spokesman, Margot Parker, has called for compulsory checks of girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation at school and following foreign holidays.

The new policy unveiled today is similar to a French initiative which has resulted in a large number of prosecutions for mutilating young girls. It would also be illegal not to report FGM if discovered and there would be a presumption of prosecution for the parents of mutilated girls.

The police has unsurprisingly attracted criticism from the left who have denounced it as racist and a breach of human rights. These are the same people, of course, who had no problem with Diane Abbot, Keith Vaz and a number of other MPs calling for compulsory checks of girls at risk of FGM in 2014.

Despite being a criminal offence since 1985, there has been just one prosecution for FGM and that was on a tenuous charge of redoing childhood FGM when stitching up a mother who had given birth. Unsurprisingly, the doctor involved was acquitted as he was merely putting everything back the way he found it.
