Other Items That Caught Our Eye This Week - w/e 11 November

by The Participator – 12 Nov 2017

Apologies we are slightly late with the weekly round-up this week, will try to get back on schedule next week.


FOR YOUR TOMORROW WE GAVE OUR TODAY – REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY

Today is Remembrance Sunday, when those who died in past conflicts are honoured at ceremonies up and down the country. Yesterday Amber Rudd (the current home secretary) wrote in the Daily Telegraph that she felt that the red poppy had been hijacked by what she termed the “far-right”. Our sometimes rather hot-headed contributor Chauncey Tinker has penned an angry tirade in answer to the home secretary’s article which you can read in this special extra article here:

I CALL FOR AMBER RUDD'S RESIGNATION FOR POLITICIZING THE RED POPPY


BREXIT – KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE!

We began to turn our focus towards the Brexit process and the EU this week as we are growing alarmed by the ongoing lack of progress. Just one reminder about why we are trying to leave the EU:

Jean-Claude Juncker profile: ‘When it becomes serious, you have to lie’

If you didn’t see it already this was our first post in this series:

Brexit – The Art Of The No Deal


16 YEAR OLD VOTING BLOCKED

(This is a story from last week).

Tories block the 16 year old voting nonsense, and are accused of filibustering. Haven’t Labour gerrymandered the electorate enough already with mass immigration?

Tory MPs accused of filibustering to block bill lowering the voting age to 16

Diane Abbott lied about 16 year old soldiers being allowed to fight for their country and was met with much ridicule on social media:

Diane Abbott wrongly claims 16-year-olds can fight for their country in latest gaffe


CORBYN GIVES CONVICTED VOTE FRAUDSTER JOB IN PARLIAMENT FOR LABOUR

Jeremy Corbyn gives job as campaign chief to Left-winger guilty of voter fraud


DAVID KELLY

David Kelly’s body to be exhumed apparently at the request of his relatives:

Decision to exhume body of Iraq WMD scientist David Kelly ‘will fuel conspiracy theories’


HOME OFFICE IN ACTION

Home office thwarts SAS initiative to stop ISIS jihadis at airports with iris scanners

Violent Somali criminal who has been jailed 13 times wins 80,000 payout from taxpayers’ because he was kept in detention for too long while Home Office tried to throw him out of UK

Now some people would say this is not Amber Rudd’s fault except she is a Remainer, and as long as we are in the EU we are not going to be able to even begin to address such an infuriating waste of taxpayers’ money.


ONE LAW FOR ALLAH’S FOLLOWERS, ANOTHER FOR EVERYONE ELSE?

Its tempting to think so when we see a case like this one:

Judge spares mother-of-five from jail after she encouraged UK terror attacks on pro-ISIS Facebook group as he tells her: ‘The sooner you get back to your children the better’

TEMPERS FLARED IN PARIS AS MUSLIM STREET PRAYER MET WITH LA MARSEILLAISE PROTEST

For those of you not aware there has been an issue with Muslim street prayers in France for some time where large numbers of Muslims block streets to hold loud prayer sessions, often illegally blocking traffic. The given pretext for these prayer sessions is usually that there aren’t any mosques in the vicinity or they are too small etc. and so they can be seen really as political demands for more mosques to be built.

The French are beginning to be understandably increasingly upset about these protests and the inequality before the law that results when these prayer sessions are tolerated by the authorities (police are usually present). This week we saw a significant protest led by politicians against a relatively small such prayer session, with the crowd of French people singing the Marseillaise to drown out the prayers.

Vlad Tepes blog includes a video with a full translation:

Locals finally have had enough of muslim street prayers. But wait till you find out why they do it!
