Facial Recognition

Do you think that this will make the perpetrators think a bit before starting riots? Or maybe they don't think - that is the point.

This is the crowd before the riot in Vancouver. Put your cursor anywhere in the crowd and double-click a couple of times and then use the scroll button in the centre of your mouse.

You can zero in on one single face. The clarity is unbelievable.

This is the photo taken by Port Moody photographer Ronnie Miranda that appeared in the Tri-City News last Friday (24-June).

This is actually scary. You can see - perfectly - the faces of every single individual - and there were thousands!

Privacy? Just think what the police and the military have at their disposal.

UN WORLD SURVEY BY PHONE

Last month a world-wide survey was conducted by the United Nations.



The only question asked was:

"Could you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food
shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a massive failure for the following reasons:

1.    In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.

2.    In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.

3.    In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.

4.    In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.

5.    In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.

6.    In South America they didn't know what "please" meant.

7.    In the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

8.    In the UK they hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.

Tesco blunder means beers for 24p

, 11:20, Thursday 2 June 2011

A computer glitch at Tesco stores in Scotland saw shoppers charged as little as 24p a beer, resulting in thousands of people rushing to cash in before it was fixed.

The mistake meant that in Scotland you could buy three cases of beer or cider for just £11. This meant you could pick up premium brands such as Magners, Budweiser, Stella Artois and Guinness for as little as 31p a can or 24p a bottle.

Word spread rapidly on social networking sites Twitter and Facebook as well as by word of mouth as customers rushed to cash in.

"Was casually chatting to my dad about the beer situation at Tesco, mention 3 crates for £11 and he sprints to the car," said Rebecca Macdougall.

Police were even called at one point to a Greenock store after heavy congestion was reported in the car park as customers rushed to take advantage of the mistake before it was fixed.

"Price glitch for beer has literally caused a stampede at the local Tesco. Tempers are flying in car park," reported Graham McKenzie on Twitter.

"Madness in Tesco tonight, seems their tills had an error and were selling 3 cases of beer for £10," reported John, Tweeting under the name saabbhoy.

A spokesman for the supermarket said this hit all shops in Scotland. "This was a pricing error affecting only a handful of lines on promotion for a short period. The price was corrected as soon as the error was spotted," he said.

Tesco has now corrected the error.

Dear Mr. Cameron,
 
Please find below our suggestion for fixing England's economy.
 
Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
 
You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
 
There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.
 
Pay them £1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
 
1) They MUST retire.
 
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed
 
 
2) They MUST buy a new British car.
 
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed
 
 
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
 
Housing Crisis fixed
 
 
4) They MUST send their kids toschool/college/university -
 
Crime rate fixed
 
 
5) They MUST buy £100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
 
 
and there's your money back in duty/tax etc
 
 
6) Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.
 
It can't get any easier than that!
 
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
 
If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.
If not, please disregard.

  Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.  Live in a tiny room and pay £600.00 per week and have no hope of ever getting out.

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Appleby almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the county of Cumbria?

And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 125,000 illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

THE BRITISH CONSTITUTION They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ... Why don't we just give them ours?

It was drawn up by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for centuries and we're not using it anymore.

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or Parliament, is this -

You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal', 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians.....

It creates a hostile work environment.

View Article  Why? Because the Bible Says So!
In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any   circumstance.  The following response is an open letter to Dr.. Laura, written by a US man, and posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative

Dear Dr. Laura:
  
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.     When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female,provided they are purchased from neighboring nations.  A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians.  Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7.  In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24.  The problem is how do I tell?  I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9  The problem is my neighbors.  They claim the odor is not pleasing to them.  Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death.  Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality.  I don't agree.  Can you settle this?  Are there
'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight.  I have to admit that I wear reading glasses.  Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27.  How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm.  He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend).  He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot.  Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14) 

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.   Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan.

Super Injunctions

The judiciary, from the County Courts to the Law Lords are there to apply the law with scrupulous fairness, right and using legal precedence. What they are NOT required to do is create the law - however unfortunate for The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, that is the responsibility of those f*ckwits in the House of Commons.
Recently it has transpired that a "famous" actor, married with children ( and who "tweets" about the happiness of it) was unfaithful to his family with the prostitute who famously bonked Wayne Rooney on the night that he thought a packet of cigarettes for £200-00 was a bargain, a famous footballer ( again married with children) had a six month sexual affair with the "star" of a reality t.v. piece of dross and a famous ( married with children) television presenter had a long running affair with his (married) co-presenter who, when it came out, was sacked because the Man said that he couldn't work with her ( allegedly).

Now, you are not allowed to know who these people that obtained the injunctions are; it cannot be reported; it cannot be commented on. This is because the injunctions were sought, and granted, under Article 8 of the European Human Rights Act, 1998 - the right to privacy. A laudable aim and one which we would not argue with, even at our lowly level ( or in my case here, high up on the 15th cross on the left). Ostensibly this was to protect their children from embarrassment and also to protect their family life. Let's look at that for a moment - they want to happily screw some totty outside of marriage ( in one case paying for it) yet they want to "protect their children and family life". Did it not occur to them that THEY jeopardised it by THEIR OWN actions which would never, ever have remained secret.

Normally I couldn't care less what they do with whom and with whatever they choose to assist their "fun & frolics" - they can do whatever they like as long as they do not break the law ( that's the actor buggered then), frighten the horses or scare the children. However, the one thing guaranteed to get "right up my nose" after these public figures take these actions is their following self-righteousness in demanding privacy and the arrogance of the judges in deciding what is law when their only job is to apply it. I hate being dictated to in matters that I consider not the concern of the cloistered judiciary - the people who administer law but don't seem to grasp justice ....... because the LAW is precise.

Err - no it isn't ! I therefore spent three minutes on the internet to find out who they were ........ lo and behold, my quest was fruitful.

As the law says, Article 8 of the European Human Rights Act guarantees the "right" to privacy. Sadly for Mr.Justice Eade and his like-minded colleagues, Article 10 guarantees the Human Right of free speech. Remember the old song from my parent's days ? "Love and marriage, love and marriage, Go together like a horse and carriage, YOU CAN'T HAVE ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER". ( Come on - some of you of a certain age are singing it to yourselves now, aren't you ?)

So - for being selective in their adjudication the judges can read this ( and for being total hypocritical shitbags the men concerned can kiss my saggy arse).
I claim my right under Article 10 of the European Human Rights Act, 1998.

1. The actor is Hugh Bellingham of t.v.'s Downton Abbey fame ( Downton Abbey - fame ?), allegedly.

2. The footballer with the reality "star" is Ryan Giggs of Manchester United's Hall of Fame allegedly, especially as an example of the perfect "pro" who is a family man and dedicated.

3. The T.V. presenter ( and his partner who was sacked) is Alan Shearer with his mistress being Gabby Logan ( neeYorath) , allegedly.

Shopkeeper praised by judge for 'bravery'

A shopkeeper who fought off a masked knife-wielding robber has been praised by a judge.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard that Edward McGinnis, 68, pulled the scarf hiding the attacker's face, hit him with a baseball bat and drove him out of the store in Bo'ness.

The lawyer defending Stephen Garven, said: "He commendably took the law into his own hands."

Lord Malcolm said Mr Mcginnis had responded with "admirable bravery".

End Quote Micheal Stuart Prosecuting

Jailing Garven, 22, for four years, the judge told him: "Mr McGinnis responded with admirable bravery by pulling the scarf from your face, ignoring the large knife you were brandishing and chasing you off with a baseball bat."

At an earlier hearing, the High Court in Edinburgh was told that Mr McGinnis had been unable to stop Garven fleeing with £170, but his actions had enabled police to recognise Garven's face from the store's CCTV security camera.

Defence advocate Derrick Nelson said Mr McGinnis also recognised Garven as a customer at the shop.

The lawyer said, Garven was desperate because he was being hounded over a drug debt and threatening messages had been left on the telephone answering machine at his mother's house.

Garven appeared from custody and admitted the raid on the Hillcrest Store in Bo'ness, West Lothian, on 4 December last year.

Advocate depute Michael Stuart, prosecuting, told the court how Mr McGinnis was left in charge of the family-run shop.

During the afternoon a man bought tobacco while Garven lurked outside.

When Mr McGinnis opened the till to give the customer change, Garven rushed in yelling to the shopkeeper not to close the till and brandishing a kitchen knife.

'Dire straights'

Garven then leaned over and grabbed a handful of £10 and £20 notes.

The court heard that the accused wore a black scarf which covered his neck and face to just below the eyes.

Mr Stuart said: "Mr McGinnis pulled at the scarf to uncover the accused's face before striking him on the body with a baseball bat which he retrieved from behind the counter."

When police caught up with Garven he told them he was in "dire straights" because he owed £650 to drug dealers in Glasgow.

When he realised that police were after him he panicked and threw the cash and the clothes he had been wearing into the sea.

The court heard that Garven had a record for break-ins and also has previous convictions for assault and carrying weapons.

Everything about Jacob's Creek is perfect, a survey has confirmed

Researchers at the Institute for Studies found 97% of middle class Britons believe the reasonably-priced wine to be the all-time masterpiece of vinification.

Professor Henry Brubaker said: "When you present it to hosts, they will never fail to comment positively.

"Usually they will say 'ooh, Jacob's Creek.' or 'Jacob's Creek, nice', or perhaps just a simple 'lovely'.

"It's like somehow they're ignoring that you only got it because it was the cheapest one in the shop that wasn't embarrassingly cheap.

"Certainly it is the only product on sale in your local Spar that carries such social cachet. No one would make such a fuss if you turned up with a Double Decker.

"But it is also delicious. Just check out that bouquet - grapey and with a hint of wine."

He added: "Fuck the French. They eat amphibians and are bad at war."

Party guest, Stephen Malley, said: "I'm fairly convinced most people haven't yet cottoned on to Jacob's Creek because they're not quite as zeitgeisty as my friends and I.

"I consider myself something of a connoisseur. You may, for example, be interested to know that Jacob's Creek is made in a vineyard."

View Article  Days before M1 returns to suicide-inducing normality

It could be at least three days before motorists can return to pondering suicide on the M1 Motorway (UK), officials have warned

Transport minister Mike Penning stressed that extensive safety checks to a fire damaged bridge had to be completed before he could allow road users to sit in a 30 mile tailback, fantasising about their own death.

He said: "I know how important it is for people to sit bumper to bumper hoping a stricken jumbo jet will come screeching out of the blue and send them hurtling into the void of total oblivion where there aren't thousands of fucking cones that seem to have just been left there by mistake and no lorry driving bastards trying to overtake each other like the bunch of evil fucking Nazi shits they unquestionably are."

Tom Logan, a commuter from Hatfield, said: "It's going to feel weird this morning not weeping uncontrollably or jabbing my thigh with a biro to distract myself from thoughts of getting out of the car and stripping naked before leaping onto people's bonnets and pressing my genitals against their windscreens until I'm finally taken down by a police marksman."

The motorway has been blissfully closed since Saturday after a blaze at a scrapyard directly underneath it, prompting experts to ask why in the name of Christ a gigantic fire hazard is conducting its hot, petrol-soaked business just inches the below the country's main artery.

Civil engineer, Bill McKay, said: "Did no-one at any point say, 'that thing that smells very strongly of oil is a tad close to the M1 isn't it?'.

"At no point did an off-duty fireman who was just passing by think, 'd'you know what, I'm wondering if something I'm trained to recognise as a significant fire hazard should really be bumping up against the busiest road in the country like that?'.

"And when it gets what I assume is some kind of periodic safety certificate from the local council did no-one think to ask what happens to a steel-reinforced concrete bridge when you go at it with a massive blow torch made of old Vauxhall Corsas?"

He added: "This is Third World stuff. What the fuck is wrong with us?"

View Article  Where has Your Money Gone?

Where has your money gone?

The latest report written in the 'Daily Telegraph' the money Britain gives in Overseas Aid (as below). The Minister for Overseas Aid was also heard on the BBC World News programme with his report of the Foreign Aid Programme Britain’s donations. It came after the report of the UK Budget. A follow up was the sacking of 2,000 experienced long term servicemen, *One Sgt Major was actually serving on the front line in Afghanistan when he was informed he was going to be sacked. The government state the MOD cannot afford to keep them. Pilots were shelved near the completion of the course they only had two weeks left to finish. Fighter planes are being scrapped, as are essential RN Ships.

The Defence budget has had a 30% reduction cut while British Forces in Afghanistan are in desperate need for safety vehicles and essential equipment the government say they cannot provide because of lack of funds.  The Overseas Aid and the Welfare costs the UK pay out should have been the first reduction in finance, and cut drastically to make sure the money is available towards the safety of our troops which should be paramount. The government should stop the money given to the Imams (have never worked in 19 years and get over 2,000 pounds a month to support the kids he knocks out with three wives), also his other social security dissident parasites who have no intention of ever working, they should be kicked out with the riff raff and millions of other scroungers Blairs 'New Labour mob let in.

They should immediately, bring in National Service to get the millions of UK's bone idle youths of their arses. And get out of the EU that is also robbing the British public blind, while Germany and France reap all the benefits. and live in luxury. The British government should wake up from their own self indulgence and make sure Britain do not donate anymore more funds to the EU and shelf the inane laws and legislation they think up and bring into force from week to week, absolutely ridiculous laws that affect British citizens, thought up by a mob of overpaid pigs in the trough foreigners who now run Britain, which is now known as the "European Nanny Welfare State." 

Also unbelievable the billions of dollars India and Pakistan spend on cricket while Britain subsidise their starving millions living in abject poverty and squalor on their streets. Also note the money Pakistan are spending on Defence. We thought the Australian government were wasting our tax payer’s money. According to the UK list of benefactors the countries involved receive aid from both OZ and the UK. A serious case of double dipping while our own pensioners, hospitals and clinics close, and essential services suffer because both governments say they do not have the funds.   Bloody farcical!!!

It would appear that, it is not only our, dearly beloved "Krudd" that is still giving the tax payers money away.

And I was under the false impression that UK was broke and owes the IMF some £650bn + (unless you know different) how wrong you can be.

 Just in case you missed the figures for the UK Overseas Aid Budget for 2011/2012, here are the details

Courtesy of the Daily Telegraph:-

In £ Millions:-

Ethiopia                                  290

India                                        280

Pakistan                                 267

Bangladesh                            200

Nigeria                                    180

African Regional Bodies      180

Afghanistan                           178

Tanzania                                150

Congo                                     147

Sudan                                     140

Don't Forget Portugal         ???

Don`t Forget Spain             ???

On top of this there is a suggestion of a £100 M for Zimbabwe.

You will be aware that statements had been made to exempt India from the Aid Budget, but that country still appears in the listings.

The previous 4 years for Pakistan Education was £250M, the next 4 years could be £650M.You may also be aware that Pakistan is currently negotiating with China for a £1Billion purchase of submarines, and a £1Billion purchase of Fighter Planes.   All make sense?  

 If you had the misfortune to listen to the Minister for Overseas Aid on the radio a few weeks ago, you may remember that the oration was noticeable for his level of conceit and arrogance, not what is needed to get his message accepted by the British Public.

 In “The Big Society” the giving of Overseas Aid could be devolved from Government and left to people to subscribe to Charities.  If the Government has “hidden agendas” concerning National Security, or Anti-terrorism, then in their much vaunted “transparency” they should make those facts known.

Memory was something you lost with age
An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano
A web was a spider's home
A virus was the flu
A CD was a bank account

A hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

ROYAL NAVY AND ARMY REDUNDANCIES

The Army and the Royal Navy today released the details of their redundancy programme to their personnel. The specific trades and branches of each service which are affected by the first tranche of the redundancy programme, along with the numbers being sought from each area have been announced.

 

In October, following the SDSR the MOD announced that it would be reducing the number of military personnel by 17,000 across all three services; 7,000 from the Army, 5,000 from the Royal Navy and 5,000 from the RAF. While some of these reductions will be achieved through a decrease in recruiting and not replacing those who leave, there will still need to be around 11,000 redundancies. Each service will run a number of redundancy tranches over the next four years with reductions planned to be fully achieved by April 2015.

 

Although this is a compulsory programme, volunteers will be sought.

The Army has identified 150 redundancy fields by looking at where the Army is in surplus now and where it will still be in surplus in 2015. For this first tranche, there will be approximately 1,000 redundancies, half of which are expected to be volunteers. About 25% of those being made redundant in this tranche will be officers, but no one with less than 8 years experience will be made redundant.

The first tranche of redundancies for the Royal Navy will result in a total of around 1600 redundancies from across a variety of the Naval Service’s specialisations and branches, and will include ratings and officers up to the rank of Captain. Those selected will be Officers from the Engineering, Medical, Warfare and Logistics Branches as well as Junior Ratings and Senior Ratings from a variety of Branches.

A request that I received
from

Tez Watson, RAF Rtd


Dear Peter

A friend of both you and I, Keir Hardie (RM ret'd) suggested that I contact you to see if you might be willing to help the above cause by publicising it through your network of contacts/websites.

A recent post - He took a job knowing he would never get rich. He's missed out on many holidays and special occasions in order to protect lives. He was expected to lay down his life or take a life if necessary. It has been proven that his life expectancy is shorter than yours because of everything he went through. And some think he's not deserving of his pension, or health care benefits. (This also applies to service ladies, of course.)

Mick Clarke an ex-RLC Sergeant has had a pretty rough time of it and is suffering badly from the consequences of his long service career. He has found life very tough since being leaving the mob and started the cause on Facebook to try and help others like him as much as for his own benefit. There are many ex-servicemen and women that deserve better having given so much for their country (and other countries!) and they seem to be at the bottom of the heap when it comes to support from the government - the druggies, the  spongers and the scroungers seem to fare much better having given nothing...

The aim is to try and recruit 100,000 members and then try to convert them a quickly as possible to signatories to a Westminster petition (once it is launched). The window for the e-petition is limited and if it can get 100,000 signatories then apparently a question must be raised in parliament. We also would like to locate well-known faces that have a military career/background be they sports/media/entertainment/politics/etc - anyone willing to help to bring the cause the attention of the media.

I have suggested that a formal parade of ex-servicemen could be organised in London (taking the route of the Remembrance Day parade) - though given recent peaceful protests being hijacked I'm not so sure. However, it could be possible and the event could pay it's respects to the fallen as it would pass the Cenotaph. It may not be easy to mobilise ex-servicemen but if there's a potential financial benefit to them all it may just prove possible.

For my part I served in the RAF for 21 years as an aircraft technician reaching the dizzy heights of Sergeant in 1989 and serving on until 1997. I saw this cause and decided to get involved as I am fit (?) and able unlike many of our former colleagues.

Please take a moment to visit this website and if you can assist in any way, no matter how small your support would be much appreciated.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

Old Bobby Cee, I remember him well. I was quite upset knowing that this character had passed away in 2004 and didnt even know. There are a handfull of us including me & Keith "Noddy" Dunn, Barry "Rocker" Holroyde, "Spike" Hughes and others who work the "Doors" (1969 to 1976) at his various nightclubs where he was either manager/owner. He was well known and great at what he did (with our help of course) £5 a night, free booze and a chicken supper included. We had to supplement our meagre MOD wages somehow.

A huge guy with a bad temper (worse than his bite) and a great sense of humor. It makes you realise that we are all getting older.......

Yes, I have placed in the "Crossed the Bar" section as he was a part of our lives whilst we served in the RM.......

RIP, Bobby Cee.......

 Illegal Migrants Can Return To UK Sooner
The move is designed to persuade illegal immigrants and failed asylum seekers to leave of their own volition without the need for costly forced removals and more than halves the current five-year ban period.

However, the ban on those who delay their return could be increased to 10 years, the Home Office said.

Immigration minister Damian Green said: "It is much better value for the taxpayer if we can get people who have no right to be here to leave this country voluntarily.

"So overall it's good news all round.

"It means they're in this country for a shorter period of time, which is good for confidence in the immigration system, and it saves money, so that's why we're reducing the number of years for which they are subsequently banned for having been here illegally in the first place.

"They still suffer, but the length of time for which they're not allowed back will be reduced if they're willing to go voluntarily in the first place."

The shake-up will also mean millionaire business men and women with £10m or more to invest will be offered a fast-track to a British passport.

They will be able to settle in the UK after two years, instead of the current five, and will be able to get a passport after five years instead of the current six, the Home Office said.

Those investing £5m will be able to settle after just three years.

Last year, fewer than 300 investors and entrepreneurs came to the UK.

Mr Green said: "We want those who have the most to offer to come and settle here.

"Entrepreneurs and investors can play a major part in our economic recovery and I want to do everything I can to ensure that Britain remains an attractive destination for them.

"Last year we issued far too few visas to those who wish to set up a business or invest in the UK - I intend to change that."

He added: "Anyone applying for a UK visa will have to meet our strict immigration rules and their immigration history will be taken into account."

'Fukushima 50' risk lives to prevent meltdown

We do not know their names, their faces, their families or their personal stories. Nobody really does. They are strangers, in a faraway land, doing the unthinkable. In Japan they have a name: The Fukushima 50. A coterie of nuclear plant employees - some reports indicate 50, others suggest four working rotations of 50 - who stayed behind while 700 of their co-workers were evacuated from the stricken Fukushima-Daiichi facility on the Japanese coast.

Five have been killed. Two are missing. Twenty-one have been injured in a struggle where, in the words of Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan, "retreat is unthinkable." The men understand the stakes. They know there is no turning back. One worker told a departing colleague he was prepared to die - that it was his job. Another informed his wife he wouldn't be coming home anytime soon.

And so they battle on, a weary bunch of managers, operators, technicians, soldiers, firemen, amid rumours, worst-case scenarios and startling television footage. They are mid- and low-level employees. They are men with no names, cast into extraordinary circumstances, battling fires, explosions, the threat of explosion and the invisible menace: dangerously high levels of radiation no protective suit can deflect, and one that threatens to seep into the atmosphere if they fail.

Wootton Bassett given 'Royal' title

Wootton Bassett, renowned for paying its respects to soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, is to be granted the title "Royal" in recognition of its actions.

The small market town in Wiltshire will become the first town in more than 100 years to be given the honour in recognition of its spontaneous shows of respect and mourning for fallen soldiers, David Cameron said.

The news comes as Mr Cameron confirmed that troop repatriations through the town would no longer happen from September because of the closure of the nearby RAF Lyneham base.

Mr Cameron said the Queen had agreed to the tribute as "an enduring symbol of the nation's admiration and our gratitude to the people of that town".

"Their deeply moving and dignified demonstrations of respect and mourning have shown the deep bond between the public and our Armed Forces," Mr Cameron told MPs.

The Prime Minister made the announcement after making his regular tribute at the start of question time in the House of Commons to the most recent military casualty in Afghanistan.

"The town will become Royal Wootton Bassett later this year in a move I believe will be welcomed right across our country," he said.

The only other Royal towns in England are Royal Leamington Spa - granted the title Royal in 1838 by Queen Victoria - and Royal Tunbridge Wells, granted the honour in 1909 by King Edward VII.

Wootton Bassett residents welcomed the announcement but insisted that they had taken part in the ceremonies as a mark of their respect for the Armed Forces and their families and had not sought any reward.

Mary Champion, Mayor of Wootton Bassett, said: "This is a great honour for our community as the repatriations move away from Wootton Bassett."

A thoroughly well deserved recognition.......


View Article  New fleet for the Navy
New fleet for the Navy

Details have been released regarding Britain 's introduction of the next generation of fighting ships: The Royal Navy is proud of the cutting edge capability of the new fleet of Type 45 destroyers. Having initially named the first two ships of this class HMS Daring and HMS Dauntless, the HM Ships naming committee have, after intensive counselling, renamed them HMS Cautious and HMS Prudence. The final four ships are to be named HMS Empathy, HMS Nervous, HMS Timorous and HMS Apologist.

Costing £750 million, they have been designed to meet the needs of the 21st century; in addition to state of the art technology, weaponry, and guidance systems, the ships will comply with the very latest employment, equality, health & safety and human rights legislation.

They will be able to remain at sea for several months and positively bristle with facilities. For instance, the new user-friendly crow's nest comes equipped with wheelchair access. Live ammunition has been replaced with paintballs to reduce the risk of anyone getting hurt and to cut down on the number of compensation claims. Stress counselors and lawyers will be on duty 24hrs a day, and each ship will have its own onboard industrial tribunal.

The crew will be 50/50 men and women, and balanced in accordance with the latest Home Office directives on race, gender, sexuality and disability. Sailors will only have to work a maximum of 37hrs per week in line with Brussels Health & Safety rules even in wartime! All bunks will be double occupancy, and the destroyers will all come equipped with a maternity ward and crèche, situated on the same deck as the Gay Disco.

Tobacco will be banned throughout the ship, but cannabis will be allowed in the wardroom and messes. The Royal Navy is eager to shed its traditional reputation for "Rum, Sodomy and the lash"; out goes the occasional rum ration which is to be replaced by Perrier water, although sodomy remains: this has now been extended to include all ratings under 18. The lash will still be available but only by request. Condoms can be obtained from the Bosun in a variety of flavours, except Capstan Full Strength.

Saluting officers has been abolished because it is elitist, and is to be replaced by the more informal "Hello Sailor". All notices on boards will be printed in 37 different languages and Braille. Crew members will no longer be required to ask permission to grow beards or moustaches - this applies equally to the women.

The MOD is working on a new "Non specific" flag based on the controversial British Airways "Ethnic" tailfin design, because the white ensign is considered to be offensive to minorities.

The newly-renamed HMS Cautious is due to be re-commissioned soon in a ceremony conducted by Captain Hook from the Finsbury Park Mosque who will break a petrol bomb over the hull. She will gently slide into the water to the tune of "In the Navy" by the Village People played by the Royal Marines. Sea Trials are expected to take place, when she sets out on her maiden mission. She will be escorting boat loads of illegal immigrants across the channel to ports on the south coast.

The Prime Minister said that "While the ships reflected the very latest of modern thinking they were also capable of being up-graded to comply with any new legislation.

His final words were " Britain never, never waives the rules!"

The following is an extract from the Soviet paper ‘Sovietsky Flot’

Ahoy there Members,stand by your beds!

this from 1957 edition of ye olde Globe and Buster,

I don`t know how you bastards can sleep at night!

We`re still here and the old Sovs have passed on.


The British Marines have been in operation for about 300 years.

They have taken part in all wars, both great and small, waged by the British colonialists on land and sea, and they have appeared in the role of “imperial police” against the peoples of colonial and dependent countries.

          The Marines have a special position in the structure of the British armed forces.

          An article in the English magazine Soldier stated it is their duty to carry out exceptionally dangerous and difficult tasks in the rear of the enemy or in any other sort of country and to conduct  punitive measures against colonial peoples.

          The British Marines recruit their men by signing on the most adventurously inclined of the countries youth, amongst them being elements from the criminal underworld. For the selection of candidates, the basic requirement for future Marines is that they shall be mentally attuned to a spirit of Imperial ideology of brigandage and violence and that they shall have that special stamp of character which knows neither pity or leniency.

          The training of these punitive troops is carried out in several stages. At Deal, recruits go through a course of basic military and ideological training for three months. Here they are taught Corps History

          From here they go for three months to the training centre at Lympstone where particular stress is laid upon training for punitive expeditions and developing and anti-Soviet and anti communist spirit. Marines learn the tactics required to disperse demonstrations by workers and for fighting against partisans in varying types of terrain.

          After that the Marines go to 42 Commando for two months where side by side with general military training, they also specialise in carrying out small diversionary raids, the duties of sabotage parties and how to deal with precipitous coasts and turbulent rivers.

          From this Commando Marines then go aboard warships where they get to know about service afloat together with the duties of naval police, which they undertake aboard ships.

          All this training is concluded with two weeks courses in the final selection takes place. From here the Marines can either join ships detachments or go to 3 Commando Brigade or to landing detachments of the fleet or finally to a so called special services unit.

          Those who go to sea are part of the ships company and form “a crew within a crew”. According to the magazine The Navy, each Aircraft Carrier has a detachment of 90 marine which carries out the police functions over the rest of the ships company. It is not by chance that in English literature, the Marines are called “The obedient armament against disobedient seamen”. They watch for misconduct amongst the ship’s company, carry out political screening of sailors and guard particularly important positions in the ship like the magazines, the navigation section of the ship and so on. When this or any other ship takes part in the suppression of the national liberation movement of a country, the Marines quickly land to quell the disturbance with armed force.

          Thus, in the post war years, British Marines have made short work of the workers of Hong Kong, British Honduras, Malaya, and other countries.

          3 Commando Brigade, consists of a staff and three commandos, two of which are regular and the other a training unit. The Brigade took part in the aggressive war against the Korean Peoples Democratic Republic and it played a dominant part in the recent aggressive venture against Egypt. The Marines of 45 Commando from this Brigade were amongst the first to land in Port Said by helicopters from British Aircraft Carriers.

          Special amphibious units of Marines are to be found in the Home Fleet, the Mediterranean Fleet and the British flotillas on the Rhine and Elbe. They have at their disposal, special amphibious equipment for disembarking diversionary groups.

          Marines who are sent to a special service unit for diversionary duties against ships in port or for carrying out powerful blows in the rear of the enemy are subjected to a particularly thorough selection.

         They are also for destroying Radar posts, communications and so on. How boastfully the magazine Soldier has recorded “that small groups of carefully selected saboteurs from these units would be able to find a way in to place an atomic bomb in one of the enemy’s bases before the outbreak of war”. “In time of war, this magazine goes on to say, “these selected bands of spies and saboteurs must carry out ‘holding raids’ on isolated populated areas and spread fear among the population.

        All the personnel in this unit carry out diving training, the purpose of which is well known as was shown by the affair in Portsmouth Harbour when, in April last year “the human amphibian”, Commander Crabb, attempted to investigate the bottoms of Soviet ships which were in England on a visit of friendship .

           The magazine The Navy points out that the Marines of the Special Service Unit must also be efficient parachutists and they must be able to operate small inflatable boats and they must know all about demolitions.

          The Marines are by far the most reactionary part of Britain’s armed forces. English imperialists have turned Marines into professional murderers and sadists who are ready to commit any kind of bloody crime.

          In Port Said, the Marines of 45 Commando were slaughtering peaceful people, not even sparing old men, women and children. They burnt down their houses, looted their property and defiled national monuments. Even before their actual landing they were shooting up the people in the streets with sten and machine guns from low flying helicopters. In the words of the Swedish photographic correspondent – Anderson- who visited Port Said – I saw the bodies of women and children with bullet wounds in the back. The occupying forces had shot them as they ran for cover.

          What more can I say. It is impossible to put it into words. But my photographs – of a father bending over the body of his small daughter and her wounded mother, hugging the dead child to himself – these are documents which will never be forgotten.

          Such is the evidence left in Port Said by murderers dressed as Marines. They have now been revealed to the world in their true colours – ravishers and savages. The former First Lord of the Admiralty, Lord Hailsham, had the face to declare that the Marines had carried out their task in Egypt with “consummate skill and complete devotion to duty”.

          Such are the British Marines –The Police of the British Imperialists.

SENIOR RAIL CARDS


A member sent this in.  I have not been able to confirm it, but he is an excellent source:

 

To those of you that have - and use? - a Senior Rail Card, thought you might like to know, when it comes to renewing for a further twelve months discount, instead of purchasing the card from your local Train Station, through the Internet or over the phone [I've used all three methods in the past] at a cost of £26.00, try going through your local council.
 
I contacted my local council yesterday [Cheshire West & Chester] and was told I can purchase the same 'Senior Rail Card' through my local council office for £18.00 a saving of eight pounds over the above, I renewed mine this morning!

Wear Your Poppy With Pride - Online Petition

There is a young lady, only 18 years old who was on the TV wanting 100,000 signatures to support her campaign against employers who would not allow her to wear her poppy on poppy day at work.

We all know this country has gone daft but this is to much. On this day when a Muslim was fined £50 for burning our poppies and shouting death to our British soldiers, our boys and girls, our fellow countrymen and women, enough is enough.

I hope you vote and (click onto the link below) and also exhaust the 500 words allowed for your opinion. Please circulate this email to as many as you can, so it makes them at 10, Downing Street sit up, wake up and take notice and bloody do some thing useful for a change.

Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years?
How Long Have You Owned a Car?



Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928.

He drove it up until his death last year.....at the age of 102!

He was the oldest living owner of a car from new.  Just thought you'd like to see it.

He donated it to a Springfield museum after his death. It has 170,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition. (82 years) That's approximately 2000 miles per year.
