Greyhound trainer held over mass cruelty

It's a sad fact of life these days that you don't have to look far to find shocking stories in the news, especially when it is on the subject of cruelty, whether it be cruelty to babies, children, or even animals.

So it is with great shock and disgust that I saw in the news a racing dog breeder in Florida is facing charges for the deaths of at least two dozen dogs.
Ronald Williams is under investigation for cruelty to and for the deaths of perhaps as many as thirty dogs.

Williams is (thankfully) in jail at the moment and is facing a $54,000 bond.

Here are a few quotes:

According to the emergency suspension order, the pari-mutuel wagering division launched an investigation into Williams shortly after he delivered eight underweight dogs with sores to Greyhound Pets of America’s Emerald Coast (GPAEC) chapter on Oct. 25. Four days later, investigators entered Williams’ kennel at Ebro and discovered 21 dead greyhounds that had “suffered from extreme neglect.” Several of the animals were housed two per cage.

The five surviving dogs were rescued from the same kennel. Three of the survivors and one of the dead dogs had duct tape tightly wrapped around their necks, according to the order.

And another rather more chilling quote:

Five more carcasses were discovered in the freezer of the Building 7 kennels, and one more was found in the freezer of Building 5, where Williams also kept kennels.

Investigators also found six large plastic garbage bags that contained remains of an unknown number of animals. Investigators reported the rotting parts could not be safely inspected.

It's all rather disturbing, that a man could to this to an animal which is entrusted into his care and which relies on him for safe keeping and good company. It is truly disgusting

I have to say though, rather it happened over in the USA rather than here in the UK because I do sometimes feel they take justice more seriously in the USA especially when it comes to animal cruelty. Here in the UK there are some abhorrent crimes against animals and yet the person(s) involved get away with a fine and a pathetic excuse for a criminal sentence.

Hopefully over there in the United States their laws on animal cruelty are more defined and hopefully if found guilty/found to be guilty, they will go to prison for a long time.

It is the least that can be done for the animals that suffered and were killed, not least all the ones that may have been hurt and killed that we don't yet know about.

It astounds and disgusts me that as of yet the punishment for animal cruelty is not as strong as it perhaps should be.

Anyway, I will keep you updated on the latest with this when I hear it.

Until next time,

It's been too long

Hey all, sorry I know it's been a while but I have been very busy.
I went away over the summer and then when I came back I moved into a flat, and then on top of that I have been pretty manic at work.

Don't worry I haven't fallen off the edge of the planet.

Back soon!

MP's Bully Expenses Staff

Have they no shame?
Since it broke the expenses scandal has forever changed how people look and view MP's. Some have tried to make amends by either paying back or not doing it any more, or by finding other ways to look as honest and respectful as possible.
So it probably doesn't help when they call up the people who deal with expenses and deliver a tirade of abuse just because the rules and regulations have gotten tighter now the public know about them being sneaky and stealing from the tax payer.

In this news article from "The Express"


It is explained how staff were called "monkeys" and were swore at and shouted at.


"He was said to have reduced one intern to tears though he later returned with a box of chocolates."

The people who did this are bullies who are throwing their toys out of the pram because they couldn't get their way. And the reason they couldn't get their way is because them and other politicians fiddled expenses to their own means to allow them to claim as much as possible on expenses so they didn't have to use any of their own money.

It's their own fault, and their own doing. And now they have the audacity to blame others.

Any MP found to be verbally abusing staff like that should have their expenses barred for a certain amount of time, perhaps six months.

No person deserves to be talked to like that. It's despicable behaviour. Anyone who acts that way should be ashamed of themselves and action should be taken against them.




Celebrity idiocy

Yet again we have a case of more money than sense.
It is a common thing these days for a person or persons to buy a house and then knock it down only to build another house in it's place to the acute customised liking of the land owner. It is always a shame when that house is relatively old and in it's place the people plan to build something shamelessly ugly.

So once again we have the case of someone who has more money than sense, except it's not one of these so called celebs it's Rowan Atkinson. Yes the star of Blackadder and Mr Bean plans to knock down a house that has been standing since the 1930's to make way for a futuristic house which frankly looks hideous.

Rowan Atkinson's house now:

It is a 1930's mansion in the village of Ipsden for £2,647,500 back in 2006. Neighbours thought they might restore it. Well how wrong they were. In fact the local council have just approved his application to knock it down and rebuild a house looking like this:

Good gawd Blackadder!

Frankly that is awful. Just how someone can replace a nice old beautiful house like that with modern nonsense I don't know.

Like I said, more money than sense.

The conforming game?

Do you think referee's in football/soccer have conformed too much to the fans and the players who dive too much?

It seems in the last few years diving has continued, and even when it is obvious the player is not hurt they still appeal for a foul.
These days if a person dives and a free kick or penalty is not given more often than not the players, the fans and the managers still complain whether they know it is a foul or not. If they know they pretend they didn't see.

If a referee doesn't give a foul then they are often branded bad referees by managers who quite frankly are bullies, Alex Ferguson to name but one. (I refuse to refer to him as "sir Alex".)

Alex Ferguson bullies and berates referee's, calling them and the governing body corrupt every time a game or a mere decision doesn't go their way.

These days young players who are already being paid far too much for their own good dive far too often or at least fall over and feign injury all too often.

As a result the reaction from the player, his fellow players, fans and managers during and after the game pressure the referee to make a decision.

It seems a slippery slope, and now the referee is more likely to conform to this mockery of the rules by awarding free kicks and penalties for what are more often than not atrocious decisions. This allows more and more players more leeway to dive or to fall over easily and expect a free kick from it.

The game needs to return to it's roots.

- Reduce the pay for players
- Reduce transfer fee's
- And stop allowing players to get away with atrocious behaviour on the field.

Otherwise the game will just become even more of a joke.

Death of a terrorist

The news is that Abu Daoud, the mastermind behind the massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich in 1972 has died.

During the 1972 summer Olympic games in Munich, Germany, members of the Palestinian terrorist group "Black September" entered the living quarters for the Israeli athletes in the Olympic village and took them hostage.

"By the end of the ordeal, the terrorists had killed 11 Israeli athletes and coaches and 1 West German police officer. Five of the eight members of Black September were killed by police officers during a failed rescue attempt. The three surviving terrorists were captured, but later released by West Germany following the hijacking by Black September of a Lufthansa airliner. Israel responded to the massacre with Operation Spring of Youth and Operation Wrath of God, as well as a series of airstrikes and killings of those suspected of planning the kidnappings."

And so the man who apparently organised the massacre of twelve people dies without remorse. No doubt he will be seen as a hero to some, but in my eyes he is a terrorist. Scum who used his men to launch a cowardly attack on a sporting event designed to bring nations together. To forget past woes and violence and to compete in sports.

He's scum, and he and his ilk always will be in my opinion.

Anyone thinking highly of him would be greatly mistaken. Despite the fact he said the intention was not to kill the Israeli atheletes but to use them as hostages for bartering and negotiations, the fact remains that the deaths did happen and as a result he is one of many with blood on his hands.

All I can say is, I am glad there is one less of his kind alive.

Two brilliant students found dead in hotel room

So often academic and skill full brilliance is coupled with tragedy.

Many brilliant people with talent have also struggled with personal problems and demons. So I wonder what on earth led two brilliant students to commit suicide together on a suicide pact.


These two friends who were described as intelligent rigged up a laptop to deliver lethal injections to them both.

This is incredibly sad, what is even more so is that not only did they buy into the euthanasia idea but that they took part despite the fact that they appeared to be perfectly healthy. Physically at least.

I am still on the fence about euthanasia, however surely the idea of physically healthy people looking into suicide with no prior motives other than getting the idea from someone (in this case that someone is Dr. Philip Nitschke - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Nitschke )

This is incredibly worry, and incredibly sad as well.

Regardless, may they both rest in peace.

Usher had no idea who Amanda Holden was.

A quote from the "Metro" newspaper:

"Usher tells a source he had no idea who Amanda Holden was when he met her at the Dorchester. "I thought she was in TV production or something but it turns out she was a judge. Total shock." He said."
That made me smile.

The fact that she is considered eligible to judge shows like "Britain's Got Talent" is still a shock to me.

Car crash victim sues Google for £68,000

This is the story of a dopey woman who was seeking directions from Google Maps on her Blackberry. As she walked she kept her eyes mainly down on her blackberry as she tried to navigate to her destination.

God forbid she should have the common sense to once in a while look up and see where she was going. Obviously that was too much to ask, because she ended up walking across a dual carriageway where she was duly hit by a car.

And now she is suing Google.

"Ms Rosenberg – understood to be in her mid-20s – wants Google to pay her medical bills and compensation for mental distress and lost wages."

All I can say is, what a dopey mare.

Celtic nationalists of Cornwall reject England flag

No matter what part of England or the UK you are from, we are still the same country. Despite each county and each part of the UK having it's own traditions and heritage, we all still belong to the United Kingdom and if you are within the specific borders then you are part of England.

Not so according to the Celtic nationalists of Cornwall who seem to consider the St. Georges flag of England "foreign."



This quote from the second linked article stands out to me the most:

But Michael Chappell of the Celtic League said he had received ‘many complaints about the oncoming flood of St George flags’.

He added: ‘This is a foreign flag here and can be quite insulting to some.

‘If Cornwall had its own sports teams I am sure we would see more of our own flags [pictured] rather than foreign English ones,’ said Mr Chappell, adding he hoped England would ‘fall by the wayside early in the competition’.

To me this is absurd. Cornwall is part of the UK. Despite it's Celtic roots. Denying this is absurd. they don't have their own country (as much as they would like one I'm sure) so perhaps they should learn to live with it without being offended by such trivial things.

I am not sure why but this does annoy me.
I think it's because even having the stones to suggest such a thing is insanely stupid.

"I will arrest the Pope."

You tend to hear a lot of daft things time to time, so it came as no surprise to me when Richard Dawkins, atheist, campaigner, and general boob said that he use a legal loophole to have the Pope arrested when he is visiting the UK.


Apart from the fact that he is probably biased in his "reasoning" if you can even use that word because he is an atheist, the mere audacity that you would need to have to even make such a comment is immense.

I can't help but think that it is exactly because he is an atheist that Dawkins is launching this crusade. Although he might not have better things to do the Pope does.

Whilst I agree the actions of the Vatican recently are not exactly honourable, it stands to reason that this is perhaps taking it a little too far.
I really doubt this will take off the ground and if it does all it will succeed in doing is waste the time of many people in the legal profession and otherwise.

Israel digs themselves into a deeper hole

Israel aren't really doing themselves any favours.
Firstly they fall out politically with the USA over building more houses in disputed area's, then the whole debacle on the assassination in Dubai and stealing the identities of Brits living in Israel, and now an Israeli politician refers to Brits as "dogs."

How charming. I refer you to this article:


"When asked of the comparison, Eldad said, "I was just quoting what was said in
Latroun 62 years ago. I think the British are being hypocritical and I do not
wish to insult dogs here, since some dogs show true loyalty. Who gave the
British the right to judge us on the war on terror?"

And then:

"Eldad's fellow party member Michael Ben-Ari was asked if he agrees with the
comparison and said, "Dogs are usually loyal, the British may be dogs, but they
are not loyal to us. They seem to be loyal to the anti-Semitic
establishment."Unfortunately, the Israeli government and Israeli diplomacy play
into their hands. We have learned that a dog must be called by its name. This is
anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism."

Then this morning (24th March 2010) on BBC Radio 4 an Israeli politician from a far right group was being interviewed, and he said that it was acceptable that those passport identities were stolen and used because it was used to fight terrorism.I don't really see that as a good excuse and frankly it just reinforces the idea that Israel are maintain more than ever their "we'll do what we want, stuff you if you don't like it" attitude towards countries it's supposed to call it's allies.

Another thing about the radio interview this morning, the radio presenter interviewing that Israeli MP kept asking what Israel would think if the shoe was on the other foot.What if it was 12 or so Israeli passports that had been stolen and used for a hit.The Israeli MP dodged the question.

I don't think the Israeli's are in any position to attack or critisise us Brits considering Britain has stood by Israel for over 50 years despite all that has been going on.
In all of this though I do feel sorry for the pro-West Israeli's, especially in their government. It must be tough seeing relations unravelling and months of diplomatic work being laid out in front of you as the Israeli's will no doubt try to claw their way back.

Then again if they do try to claw their way back it will be a miracle as it seems that Israel usually just employ their usual attitude of "we'll do what we like, if you don't like it then stuff you."

Well good luck to them.

Phone returned from repair filled with porn.

Yes this is the delightful news that Lauren Kennedy, 18, sent her mobile phone to be fixed at her local Carphone Warehouse. When it was returned it was full of porn.

That's not the best part though, oh no. And I quote:

"But she was left "deeply traumatized" after it was given back to her filled
with sleazy videos of sexual encounters, group orgies and women touching

What a joke. How can anyone, much less an 18 year old be "traumatized" by such things.
This just makes her look not only desperate for attention but pathetic and stupid.

Prom Discrimination

There is a story of resounding bigotry that I came across just recently.
In the US state of Mississippi a school prevented a girl from taking her girlfriend to the prom, instead they were told they had to arrive separately.


"The ACLU wants Itawamba County School District officials in Fulton, Mississippi
to reverse their decision to forbid a lesbian student from attending prom with
her girlfriend and from wearing a tuxedo to the prom. Constance McMillen, a
student at Itawamba Agricultural High School, came to the ACLU for help after
school officials told her that she could not come to prom with her girlfriend,
also a student at IAHS, and that if they arrived separately but slow-danced
together they might be thrown out."


For whatever reasons that the school made that decision, be it based on their traditional religious beliefs, how they were raised or for any other reason I hope that someone is reprimanded for this. Not necessarily fired because I am not sure that's necessary, but reprimanded.

Or perhaps some guidelines for schools set out by the government to stop cases like this happening more often as it's entirely unncesessary and all it does is give the school and all people concered a bad repuation.

She's also released a video thanking people for support:


Nothing much to report

Not only have I been very busy but there hasn't really been any news stories lately that have really grabbed me. I haven't disapeared.
Soon no doubt a story will appear that will take my fancy and make me post it here, so watch this space!

My dream

I had the strangest most vivid dream I have had in a long time, and yet in no time at all I will probably forget it which is why I feel like I need to write it down.
Some dreams are very vivid and yet as soon as you wake up you already the main details about them. You want to remember and you really try hard, and yet you cannot.
Anyway, here is the gist of my dream as I remember it.

I was in a shopping centre, one I don't really recognise though. I was
going to HMV to look at some Manga comics even though in real life HMV don't
sell Manga comics.
I entered and started to walk towards one aisle in particular when a
young kid shoulder barged me. He muttered some apology but laced with
severe attitude and he shot me a look.
So I stood in the aisle looking through the magazines but then I put
them down and turned around, at which point that same young Asian guy walked
into me. This time he wasn't so apologetic and although I can't remember what
exactly he said, I know it wasn't very complimentary.
This next part is the strangest and possibly the most frightening,
because without much more provocation I lashed out at him. He fell back onto
a rack/shelf and I hit him a few more times. Then his friend who wasn't
that much older than him came over and grabbed me by the collar but he didn't
have enough time as I then thrust my forehead into his face, headbutting him,
however not only did headbutting him not hurt, I didn't feel it.
They both lay there, quite still. In pain and in shock by the
looks of it. Everyone had turned and was looking at me. I considered running
away but I didn't. I remained rooted to the spot.

The scene then changed to what I imagine was a police station,
however it was the sort of police station you saw from a 1970's American cop
show. The policewoman who interviewed me seemed quite sympathetic however she
nodded and took the statement anyway. I was very worried, I knew I was deep
in the shit.
I left the station still protesting my innocence.

Next thing I knew I was at some sort of institution. It was a strange
mix between a psychiatric hospital, a rehab, and facility for people who have
anger issues, and so on. I was shown around by a person who kept changing. At
first it was a big hairy tattooed biker in leathers, and then towards the end it
was someone who I knew.

I was shown around and there were all sorts of people there like
Carrot Top (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrot_Top)
and so on. Eventually we stopped in this big ward where nothing was going on,
people were just milling about. Some wearing normal clothing's, others wearing
those big hospital gowns.
My guide told me I was a softy because I hurt people but didn't mean
it, however he and his friends were hard because they hurt people and meant it.
It was about that time that I woke up.

So quite a strange dream. It certainly did spark a few thoughts, and some parts even surprised me. I think the part that surprises me the most is the way I lashed out at those two young Asian guys. They were young but I didn't want to call them kids in case it made me sound like an even bigger asshole.
But they can't have been older than about seventeen or eighteen years old, I'm guessing sixteen or seventeen.

The point is that it is very unlike me to lash out like that. I am quite calm and reserved now and I am able to have patience. Admittedly I wasn't that patient when I left school some 7 years ago or so, I had a bit of a temper. But now I am calmer, much calmer.

Maybe the dream brought out and represented a different side of me, the side that no-one ever see's, not even me.
Well that's all for now. I might have some more to say on it later, but at least it's said now, it's written down so I won't forget.

What a bizarre dream.

Angie Jackson Live-Tweets Her Abortion on Twitter


"But Jackson, who said she's always spoken about controversial topics online -- she is a self-professed atheist who says she grew up in a fundamentalist cult and survived sexual abuse -- never expected her abortion tweets to garner such attention.

"I don't feel like I'm doing anything different from what I do every day," said Jackson. "But now I have people calling me a killer; it's surreal."

So despite the fact she publicly admitted to having a procedure that is still very much in debate, very much a hot topic, and very much controversial especially in America, where there are still a lot of people who feel very strongly about it one way or another, she thinks it's surreal and is surprised that some people are reacting the way they are?

Either she is a fool, misguided, or just very stupid. What was she expecting, a round of applause?

I am still very much on the fence about abortion and I think I will be still for some time, however as I said there are many who are not and who actively express their feelings especially in America. If you openly admit on somewhere very public like Twitter how can you not expect some backlash and critique?

In some way's she just brought it on herself.
That may sound harsh and unfair, however the reality of it is that she could have kept this quiet and to herself but she chose not to.

Sacre bleu!

HSBC boss Michael Geoghegan gives £4m bonus to charity


"MICHAEL GEOGHEGAN, the chief executive of HSBC, has turned down the chance to become Britain’s best-paid bank boss by handing a multi-million-pound bonus to charity.

He is in line for a payout of close to £4m after HSBC’s strong performance. This week it is expected to report annual profits of £10 billion.

Rather than give up the bonus, Geoghegan plans to pass it on to a number of children’s charities. The move follows public protests over payments to Britain’s bank bosses.

Stephen Hester, the chief executive of Royal Bank of Scotland, gave up his right to a £1.6m bonus last week in an effort to appease public anger.

Eric Daniels, the chief executive of Lloyds Banking Group, was offered a £2.25m bonus by his board — but also chose to turn it down.

Hester and Daniels were deemed to have earned the payments in spite of huge losses racked up by their banks.

Peter Sands, the chief executive of Standard Chartered, is believed to be getting a bonus of more than £1m. It appears that the former McKinsey consultant, who helped to mastermind the RBS and Lloyds bailouts, plans to accept the payout. Standard Chartered, which specialises in Africa and Asia, has few UK operations.

Geoghegan’s decision comes after a long wrangle with shareholders over pay."

Well isn't that nice of them, however I can't help but think that this was one of those "jump before their pushed" moments. With all the public outrage lately at bonuses and fiddling with expenses by bankers as well as MP's.

Maybe they wanted to try and show some redemption or maybe they were just trying to win back some support however minimal it might be.

The skeptical side of me says that although each of these people may be giving substantial amounts to charity they still not only accept their high salary but then might believe it is acceptable to receive a similiar bonus later and accept it, after all they donated their last one to charity right?

This was a nice gesture but such an action will either be a one time only occurrence or a rarity.

U.S. Shocked Andorra Not In Africa

Shock horror!!!

The Falklands row

Here is my input on the Falklands row and Argentina's claim to the Falklands.

First read this link



"The continental shelf of a coastal State comprises the seabed and subsoil of the submarine areas that extend beyond its territorial sea throughout the natural prolongation of its land territory to the outer edge of the continental margin, or to a distance of 200 nautical miles[/B] from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured where the outer edge of the continental margin does not extend up to that distance"

It is worth noting, at this juncture, that the point of the Falkland Islands closest to Argentina lies some 300 miles (480 kilometres) from its coastline. "


"Article 77, points one and four address the rights of Britain to drill for oil more closely:

"The coastal State exercises over the continental shelf sovereign rights for the purpose of exploring it and exploiting its natural resources... The natural resources referred to in this Part consist of the mineral and other non-living resources of the seabed and subsoil together with living organisms belonging to sedentary species, that is to say, organisms which, at the harvestable stage, either are immobile on or under the seabed or are unable to move except in constant physical contact with the seabed or the subsoil"

Article 81 continues:

"The coastal State shall have the exclusive right to authorize and regulate drilling on the continental shelf for all purposes"

This indicates Britain is well within it's rights.

I would like to point out that the mere geographical position of an island or group of islands does not mean that the mainland country nearest has more claim than another country.

Otherwise the French would be able to claim the Channel Islands.

I would also like to point out that at first when Argentina owned the Falklands it was whilst they were still under Spanish rule. They continued to hold it for a little while after their independence until the British regained control.

It is said it was discovered by John Strong, captain of the Welfare, in January 1690.
That along with the fact that technically Argentina didn't run it at first, Spain did using Argentina as their puppets, I doesn't see how Argentina can justify their claim to these islands.

Whilst it's true that international law might not officially acknowledge British sovereignty, Argentina does not have a credible claim to the islands.

Bedfordshire lagoon murder victim 'tortured for cash'

These days it takes a lot to shock people, to make them stop and reflect with horror on a situation.

One such incident was the Baby P incident where an innocent child was ruthlessly beaten, tortured, and then murdered.
Another example before that is the murder of Jamie Bulger, the toddler who was abducted by two boys no more than eleven years old, tortured and then murdered.

And now we have another example.

Last May the body of 27 year old Michael Gilbert was found. It was severely dismembered and an autopsy showed that before his gruesome death the victim had suffered years of abuse.


This is harrowing to even consider and come to terms with. The idea of being forced to sleep chained to a radiator is disturbing. As is the thought that to even consider escape would lead to more severe beatings and abuse.

To die and succumb to death is one thing, but to do so in a slow and painful manner at the hands of people who have no mercy or remorse is perhaps even more terrifying.

The Accused:

- The Watts brothers of Chertsey close, Luton are accused of murder.

- Their father Antonio Watt is accused familial homicide and perverting the course of justice.

- Their mother, Jennifer Smith-Dennis, is charged with familial homicide and two counts of perverting the course of justice.

- Nichola Roberts, 21, of Burfold Close, Luton, the girlfriend of the accused men's brother, Richard Watt, is charged with murder, familial homicide and perverting the course of justice.

- Natasha Oldfield, 29, of Chertsey Close, who is the girlfriend of James Watt, faces the same charges as Ms Roberts.

Of course all of these people are innocent until proven guilty and I will not be one to caste blame, however that is six people in the docks accused of this man's gruesome murder. That's six people who conspired to send this man to his death in the most inhumane way.

I sincerly hope for the sake of Mr Gilbert that the guilty person, or people, are brought to justice and given what can only be a life sentence and nothing less.

Rest in peace Mr Gilbert.

Gordon Brown and the "bullygate" scandal.


Basically an anti-Bullying helpline said some people who worked for Gordon Brown had contacted them and now a huge furor has begun.

And the head of the anti-bullying line has come under a lot of critisism and some patrons and leading supporters of the anti-bullying campaign have pulled out.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8531377.stm]Publicity leech Christine Pratt, chief executive of the National Bullying Helpline

Then Phil Woolas, MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth, Immigration minister and all round idiot and hypocrite wades into the topic by critisizing Christine Pratt:


Pot calling the kettle black if ever I heard it.

And then Taiwan's "Apple Daily" heard and just couldn't resist. Already they made a great computer generated video concerning the Tiger Wood's saga (or affair if you will) and they have struck gold once again.


I must say this is all rather entertaining.

And of course it goes without saying that that Tories are rubbing their hands in glee at this because it is yet more ammunition for them to sling in the direction of New Labour.

All this on accusations. It hasn't even been proven yet.

I have my first follower!

I am happy to announce that I have my first follower! (in a non stalkerish way...I hope.)

I am flattered and I hope to have more in the near future.

Oxford student: 'I didn't mean 'Kill the Jews'

OK so now my bullshit alarm is ringing like crazy.

Israeli minister Danny Ayalon was visiting St Edmund’s Hall, a college in the city of Oxford.
Several eye witnesses have Noor Rashid down as saying (or rather shouting) “Itbah Al-Yahud” which is an Arabic phrase meaning “Slaughter the Jews”.

However Mr Rashid then replied that he had been misheard and instead had shouted “Khaybar ya Yahod” however that really isn't much better because “Khaybar ya Yahod” is:

"a classic Arabic battle cry referring to a seventh-century attack by Mohammed on the Jewish community in Khaybar where the Jews were conquered and made to pay half of their income to the Muslim population. "

According to this article: http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/27084/oxford-student-i-didnt-mean-kill-jews

So he wasn't trying to say "slaughter the Jews" but he was giving a battle cry used when conquering the Jews and somehow that's not quite as bad? Hmmmm.

It's hardly better, but I guess by changing it to something only slightly less subtle perhaps he hopes to come across as just someone who is anti-Semitic and not a potential terrorist.

Nevertheless the phrase that he suggested he said isn't that much better or indeed subtle.

I am not sure I have much more to say on this. It pretty much speaks for itself.
A police investigation is continuing, I hope they drag him over the coals. (Not literally. Actually come back to me on that one.)

P.S The Israeli Minister involved wishes to press charges.



I say good!

Families of dead soldiers call for private meeting with Tony Blair

In other news, the families of soldiers killed in Iraq are hoping to get an audience with his holiness Tony Blair.


Notable, but whether they will be successful is another thing.
Tony Blair is a slippery character, (and who could be surprised as he trained as a lawyer.) No doubt he will try and find some way to weasel out of it and avoid them like the coward that he is. And if by some miracle he did confront them then I can imagine he will remain as ignorant as he always is.

Good luck to the families though.
May justice be done!

70 year gag put on vital evidence on the Dr Kelly

The klaxons are ringing on my conspiracy alarm!!!

Ok so I don't really have a "conspiracy alarm" as such, and if I did have one it wouldn't really go off very frequently. Whenever someone claims there is a conspiracy or cover up I scoff and scorn and all too often label them as members of the tin foil hat wearing society.

However this time I think something really does stink, because clearly there is information that is not only vital for a family who are still looking for answers, but the public too.

Since the Chilcot inquiry is in full swing and all sorts of questions are being asked it is no surprise that there are some who wish to suppress the truth. As they said in the "The X Files" the truth is out there, but getting to it is hardly ever a straight path.

Obviously at some point the inquiry and whoever was investigating and trying to put the pieces together got terribly close because now it seems Lord Hutton who chaired the first inquiry has put on a gag on medical records which include a postmortem on Dr David Kelly.

How long for you ask? was it for a decade, two decades, three perhaps? Nope, seven, I say again seven decades. I imagine they chose seven decades in the hope that whoever is asking the tough questions now will be dead in seventy years (with a bit of luck) and in seventy years there won't be anyone to ask tough questions.

Well hopefully I will still be around in seventy years time, (although I will be in my early nineties) and I will hope to live to see the day that justice is done. No doubt by the time a decision is made all those who were responsible will be long dead and will have lived a comfortable retirement. Some might have even tried to gain immunity through some elaborate deal.

I would very much like to see Lord Hutton in the spot light explaining his actions,and grilled (preferably by Jeremy Paxman) to no end.

Of course I imagine when that happens it won't be front page as the front page story will be "Hell Freezes Over!"

And in other news....

Here are yet more snippets of news I have picked up on lately: 1: Escaped convict uses facebook to taunt police:


What a cheeky sod!

2. Kraft increases it's bid to buy Cadburys:


Can't they get the hint?
No means no.
I hope they fail in their attempts to buy this great chocolate institution

3. Somali Pirates seize yet another British freighter.


Super, another ship, another ransom demand.

And lastly, found this little gem of a picture:

I would be furious if some git did that to my car

Ciao for now!!

Swastika's in a hotel


Now I know it's "The Sun" but work with me here.
Apparently Sebastian Wocker's jaw dropped when he saw this:

Now when you see that, do you immediately think of swastika's like this?

Because I surely don't. I just see a pattern on glass.What a big fuss over nothing.

It's good to hear the hotel haven't commented yet, they should just ignore him. What a complete idiot.
