It’s a (lot more) than my job’s worth…

News reaches us today of the latest petulant outburst from the Soviet Socialist Railworkers Union, the RMT.

To any ordinary, reasonable human being, if there’s ice and/or snow on the ground, the sensible thing to do is to chuck a bit of salt or grit around so people don’t fall down and hurt themselves.

Unfortunately for those forced to use the London Underground such measures are now a thing of the past as RMT’s member were told in a recent memo: “The majority of station staff have received no agreed formal training to undertake this activity, including working with hazardous materials and manual handling, plus there is no agreed staff PPE on stations.”

So it seems that RMT members are incapable of shovelling grit without proper training and high visibility jackets and helmets.

If ever there was a classic example of petty-minded bureaucracy, this is it.

Makes you sick, doesn’t it?

Good job they’re in the minority

We’re always told that Islamic extremists are in a tiny minority, If that’s the case, why doesn’t a week go by when the papers aren’t loaded with stories about honour killings, stonings, murder by Taliban and similar outrageous claims.

Ahhh I hear you say, it’s probably just the Daily Mail stirring up racial hatred again – it seems to be quite a popular excuse among certain groups of our society who refuse to believe that the Muslims are capable of anything other an  outpouring of peace and love to all men (women, of course, are not included).

Good job then that this next story of religious intolerance, racial hatred and random violence was reported in the DM, otherwise, we might take it seriously.

Shame of Britain’s Muslim schools: Secret filming shows pupils being beaten and ‘taught Hindus drink cow p***’

  • Undercover footage shows pupils being taught religious apartheid
  • Muslims who adopt Western ways will be ‘tortured in afterlife’
  • Unprovoked beatings captured on camera in Yorkshire madrassa
  • Boy threatened with bench by senior student left in charge of class

It is an assembly hall of the sort found in any ordinary school. Boys aged 11 and upwards sit cross-legged on the floor in straight rows. They face the front of the room and listen carefully. But this is no ordinary assembly. Holding the children’s attention is a man in Islamic dress wearing a skullcap and stroking his long dark beard as he talks.

‘You’re not like the non-Muslims out there,’ the teacher says, gesturing towards the window. ‘All that evil you see in the streets, people not wearing the hijab properly, people smoking . . . you should hate it, you should hate walking down that street.’

[…]
We recorded a number of speakers giving deeply disturbing talks about Jews, Christians and atheists.

We found children as young as 11 learning that Hindus have ‘no intellect’ and that they ‘drink cow p***’.

And we came across pupils being told that the ‘disbelievers’ are ‘the worst creatures’ and that Muslims who adopt supposedly non-Muslim ways, such as shaving, dancing, listening to music and – in the case of women – removing their headscarves, would be tortured with a forked iron rod in the afterlife.

In 2009 this school was praised by Government-approved inspection teams for its interfaith teachings. The report said that ‘pupils learn about the beliefs and practices of other faiths and are taught to show respect to other world religions’.

 

It’s criminal to protect your own property..

After a (very) long break, we’re back to the blog and on the first day we start re-posting there’s a bumper crop of stupidity to report. First of all, we’re told have to search the cells of druggie prisoners “properly” (see below) and now, Police in Surrey are telling homeowners not to put mesh in the windows of their sheds and outbuildings as it might injure potential burglars.

I thought the Coalition Government was going to cut through the PC stupidity that’s destroying this country. Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg were supposed to right the wrongs imposed on us by the softie Labourites and put some balance back into our lives. Clearly, I was living in a fog off false hope…

Don’t put wire on your windows – it might hurt burglars! Villagers outraged after police order them not to protect garden sheds

Residents in Surrey and Kent villages have been ordered by police to remove wire mesh from their windows as burglars could be injured.

Home owners in the villages of Tandridge and Tatsfield in Surrey and in Westerham, Brasted and Sundridge in Kent have said they are furious that they are being branded ‘criminals’ for protecting their property.

Locals had reinforced their windows with wire mesh after a series of shed thefts but were told by community police officers that the wire was ‘dangerous’ and could lead to criminals claiming compensation if they ‘hurt themselves’.

We’re really, really sorry you’re a criminal…

Impressive, it turns out if you’re found with drugs in your cell while doing prison time, the prison now has to apologise to you…

(From the BBC )

HMP Shotts told to apologise for cell drug search

Prison bosses were told to apologise to an inmate who was caught with drugs in his cell after an inquiry by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman.

The prisoner was found with methadone, a heroin substitute, at HMP Shotts.

However, the prisoner, named as Mr C, complained that Scottish Prison Service (SPS) staff had “adapted” the policy on searching and testing for drugs.

His complaint was taken up by the ombudsman who found in the prisoner’s favour.

The ombudsman ruled that the SPS should put a policy in place for staff to follow when testing substances, take steps to make prisoners aware, remind staff to record search timings and “issue an apology” to the inmate.

The report into the investigation gave the SPS until 19 March to meet the recommendations and the apology was to be given by 2 February.

‘Failings’ identified

The complaint was raised in March 2010 after a search of the cell.

Staff said methadone was found in a cup after it was tested with a dip, similar to those used to test urine.

The prisoner was charged with a breach of discipline shortly after in the jail’s orderly room.

The report stated that the charge was sound but identified “failings” in the way the test was carried out.

The report continued: “I would point out that it is not my office’s role to question the grounds for placing Mr C on report nor is it my role to look at the decision reached in the orderly room.

“My role is restricted to considering the process that was applied, and followed, by the prison leading up to their decision to charge Mr C.”

Muslims are pushing us around again

I read some news stories today that once again made me mad. Not much new there, but I’m becoming ashamed to be British.  For we have no backbone any more – we have no pride in our heritage and our culture, for we are too busy trying to make sure we don’t upset anyone else.

For example, in today’s new I read about the head teacher of a primary school, who has been forced to resign from her job because she tried to bring all the pupils together for a single morning assemby.

First I was annoyed because of what has happened, and second I’m annoyed to find out that some schools have to separate the kids for assemblies in the first place.

How is it that the Muslim parents are allowed to complain and get away with pushing us around?

The second story that involves us being pushed around was concerning a woman who has fostered more than 80 children was struck off the register today because ‘she allowed’ a muslim girl to convert to Christianity.

This it seems was the girls choice, but because the woman didn’t try to stop her, she will no loner be allowed to foster children.  Isn’t that just madness?

Here’s what I think – if you are Muslim, and you don’t like the way people are in this Christian country – then you have the right to move to a country that supports your faith. So get on an airplane and go. Do not try to make our lives miserable because you can’t stand someone else having a different belief to your own.

We respect your faith – so why can’t you respect ours???

What happened to our schools

Britain is changing, our schools are changing and it’s not for the better.

I was dismayed to read a story today that gave statistics that now show 1 in 7 pupils aged 4-11 does not speak English as a first language, which apparently is over 466,000 children – This means that there are almost 600 primary schools where 70 per cent or more of youngsters normally speak a foreign language.

And what was more alarming was the fact that there are now ten schools in England where every single pupil in trhe school does not speak English as their first language.

I thought the government were supposed to be pushing for immigrants who don’t speak English as a first language, to ensure that they learn – after all if you live here full time – shouldn’t you learn our language?

NHS is squandering money again by paying the obese to lose weight!

When the NHS was set up all those years ago, I wonder if the person who did all the hard work realised that 60 years on the service that was designed to help everyone would be wasting it’s money on things that people could sort out themselves, and not spending their budget on actually helping sick people??

Today it was annouced that people who are overweight and obese will be paid to lose weight by the NHS!!!

Participants could win £70 if they lose 15lb, a further £90 for losing 30lb and another £265 to shed 50lbs  –  a total of £425.

Weights are checked once a month by a nurse in a GP surgery or an assistant at a pharmacist.

There is no time limit but patients will get only half the money for losing the weight. The rest is handed over if they keep it off for six months.

This is just outrageous!  People are being denied cancer drugs, alzheimer drugs and more because the NHS won’t give it to them, yet fat people who are perfectly capable of getting themselves thin get PAID!
