I think it makes a nice target


Some people really are scumbags.

Some dopey wog is parading in front of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament wearing an ISIS flag.

He obviously thinks he might find himself in a spot of bother and in the time honoured way of protecting terrorism has taken a child to act as a human shield.

This is the shocking moment a man paraded past the Houses of Parliament draped in an Islamic State flag with a young girl on his shoulders – before being allowed to walk free by police.

The man could be seen walking past a group of scouts near Big Ben with the little girl waving a smaller version of the jihadist group’s flag just days before the anniversary of the 7/7 terror attacks.

Police confirmed that they stopped the man in the busy tourist area on Saturday, but did not arrest him as his actions were deemed ‘within the law’.

The decision has been slammed on social media, with many saying it makes they feel unsafe on the streets of Britain.

Gavin ‏tweeted: ‘Why are we allowing this to happen on our streets a man walking past big ben with an ISIS flag.

‘Walk through London past Big Ben with an ISIS flag nothing done do it with swastika what would be done?’

He should have a medal not a conviction

Clayton Mitchell looks like a top bloke.

He smacked up a gang member in a past life and for some strange reason ended up with a conviction for his troubles.

An MP received a suspended sentence following a fight with a gang member who attacked him after being refused entry to a bar.

First-term NZ First MP Clayton Mitchell, 43, has reluctantly spoken about the incident, which occurred 18 years ago.

“The reality is, everyone has a past and I have got one, too. I have been involved in hospitality for 25 years and so, because you run bars and you stand on the front door, you do have, and I certainly have had, over the years, a lot of situations where you get put into very perilous situations.”

Mr Mitchell, who was a Tauranga City councillor before entering Parliament after the last election, was in charge of the city’s Straight Shooters Bar in 1997, when a gang member with facial tattoos was refused entry.

“It turned into a confrontation, a physical one, he was a lot bigger than me, he was a very intimidating individual. I got a black eye and swollen face out of it. Read more »

Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys AND public transport: What could go wrong?


Well lots actually.

France’s new rail fail would be unbelievable if it wasn’t true.

France’s national rail operator SNCF has ordered trains for an Italy-bound route which reportedly turned out to be a few millimeters too high for Italian tunnels, leaving passengers to Italy having to change trains at the border.

Regio 2N trains were ordered by SNCF from Bombardier, the Canadian multinational aerospace and transportation company.

They are supposed to operate on the TER (Transport Express Regional) line that serves the French Riviera coastline between Les Arcs – Draguignan station in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France and the city of Ventimiglia in northern Italy, which borders on France.   Read more »

A brilliant explanation of what causes Islamophobia ( Fear of Islam )

It is the actions of Muslims that cause the fear of Islam explains Anne Marie Waters in this debate.

Why don’t I see Islam as peaceful?  Because of the evidence.

Halal boycott working in Australia

I have posted before about Halal certification and how it is a money making scam that benefits Islam. Imagine being able to profit from simply giving authorisation for a Halal symbol to be put on thousands of products ranging from food to toilet paper, from cat food to shampoo and all at little or no cost to yourself. The Halal symbol serves no purpose except to let the consumer know that the product contains no pork and is permissible to eat or drink if you are a Muslim. Shockingly Halal symbols can be found on thousands of items that are not food or drink and that therefore do not need a warning symbol.

To put it into perspective imagine that there was a Peanut Free symbol that started off only being put on drinkable or edible products.imagesNow imagine that the Ideology of Peanut Free people lobbied to be able to form organisations to certify products as peanut free with their own special symbol despite the fact that the list of ingredients on the products already provide that information. Now imagine that they then extend this symbol to be included on products like toilet paper, shampoo and cat food, products that have never ever had anything to do with peanuts and make millions of dollars by doing so.

In Australia a boycott of Halal labelled products by consumers has motivated some companies to shun Halal certification. Some are even promoting their products as  “non-halal certified.”In response some Certification organisations have started naming and shaming the companies who choose to not be Halal certified as well as threatening trade bans.

Give renters MORE rights? You’ve got to be kidding me

Oh dear Lord, I suppose this is a consequence of the lack of so-called affordable homes…more renters…who have brought an entitlement mentality with them, demanding special rights because they are renters.

The pressure is on to give tenants more rights, as increasing numbers of people find themselves renting for longer and later into life.

The number of people in their early 30s who own their own home has dropped from half in 2001 to about a third.

Many renters want more secure tenancies and the ability to make minor changes, such as adding a new coat of paint.

Grae Burton lives with his wife and two-year-old daughter in an older-style apartment in Auckland’s Parnell. He never planned to be renting well into his 30s.

“I do feel like it’s a lot of money to throw into something that, in the end, isn’t yours – that you don’t really have control over the length of time you can stay here,” he said.

No evidence to back Mt Eden car ban

The world of Local Government is murky and marked by skullduggery and dirty pool.

Ask any property developer about the nonsense that is used by Council planners to obstruct resource consent applications and you’ll quickly decide that local government is turd.

It is regular that a planning officers report include an assessment of effects without any empirical evidence to back it up? Thumb sucks and bull dust.

David Seymour had called it, by exposing the total nonsense surrounding the ban on cars up Mt Eden.

Mr Seymour, whose electorate includes Mt Eden, questioned some of the reasons for the ban. The Act Party leader asked the authority under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act for any reports on measurements or estimates of damage caused by vehicles.   Read more »

Driving merit points: the latest PC “everyone’s a winner” nonsense

I see a newspaper editorial is all in favour of the latest “everyone is  winner” PC nonsense currently doing the rounds advocating for merit points for good drivers.

Nothing annoys generally well-behaved drivers quite so much as having the traffic rulebook thrown at them for a minor transgression. It offends their notion of fairness and, in the process, erodes their support for the police. The police, for their part, have little option but to issue tickets. Successive governments’ emphasis on lowering the road toll has dictated a low-tolerance approach. It is welcome, therefore, that a way around this unsatisfactory state of affairs may soon surface in the shape of merit points.

The concept will be studied in research about to be initiated by the Transport Agency. It will be part of an analysis of the impact of demerit points since their introduction 22 years ago. The research will ask if they have achieved better driver compliance, whether a merit-based system would be more effective, or whether the two should operate in tandem. Merit points would be gained for the time a motorist has been driving without receiving a ticket. Or they may operate as in Victoria, where tickets can be waived if a driver’s good record is deemed to warrant just a warning.   Read more »
