Update on Josie Cunningham – the NHS free boob job lady

You remember Josie don’t you?  She was the one that got the government to pay for her boob job, then supposedly felt guilty about taking tax payers’ money, so she decided to go into prostitution to earn enough money to pay for the boob job herself.

Here’s her photo, just to jog your memory, post-op.

Now, before you jump over the break, another tidbit that’s quite relevant:  She’s pregnant!   Read more »

Babies having babies, but grandad is so proud

Not sure if you caught up with the story yesterday about a 12 year old girl and a 13 year old boy becoming parents and taking out the dubious honour of the UK’s youngest mum and dad award, but here is another thing to set your mind spinning

The father of a girl dubbed ‘Britain’s Youngest Mum’ has apparently broken his silence and told a radio station he is proud of the 12-year-old schoolgirl.

A man claiming to be the father of the girl who gave birth last week, after having conceived while still in Primary School, phoned into the Nick Ferrari show on LBC, to say he was proud of his daughter. Read more »

How would you feel if DOC financially supported a gay pride event?

That’s essentially what happened in the UK.  Their Environmental Agency’s aims are

We’re an Executive Non-departmental Public Body responsible to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Our principal aims are to protect and improve the environment, and to promote sustainable development. We play a central role in delivering the environmental priorities of central government through our functions and roles.

The Environment Agency was established to protect and improve the environment and to contribute to sustainable development.

Clearly that doesn’t involve any social or community initiatives.  Their own web site says

We’re responsible for:

  • regulation of major industry
  • flood and coastal risk management
  • water quality and resources
  • waste regulation
  • climate change
  • fisheries
  • contaminated land
  • conservation and ecology
  • navigation

So, why did they do this?   Read more »

Breaking: Madeleine McCann Arrests ‘imminent’ [POLL]

madeleine-435439

British police plan to arrest three burglars who made “many phone calls” after the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in Portugal in 2007.

The Mirror says the Crown Prosecution Service last week sent an official request to Portuguese police asking permission to arrest the trio, who reportedly raided other holiday flats at the Praia da Luz resort where the three-year old was on holiday with her parents.

It is the second ‘International Letter of Request’ from Scotland Yard, after an earlier letter requesting mobile phone data.

Met officers were preparing to fly to the Algarve to make the arrests. They want to speak to the thieves because mobile phone records showed the men made numerous calls to each other in the hours after Madeleine disappeared.

The gang were believed to have raided another holiday flat at Praia da Luz in May 2007, days before Madeleine’s disappearance.

During that raid they disturbed a child, then fled when they were interrupted by the youngster’s parents.   Read more »

How does Climate Comedian Dr Jim Salinger fit this into his book?

Pierre L. Gosselin reports:

Ice breakers getting trapped in near record high sea ice around Antarctica, Arctic sea ice seeing a whopping 50% gain last summer, record killer cold and snow gripping Canada and the USA, rare snowfalls in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The string of cold weather events just doesn’t end. And all this in a non-La Nina year.

So it comes as little surprise when we are told that global temperatures haven’t risen in close to two decades and that they have been trending downwards over the last 8 years or so.

Despite the mild weather that Europe has been experiencing over the last 5 weeks, the overall temperature trend here speaks a very different story.

No no no no no…. it’s WARMING dammit!  Look:   Read more »

UK shows why filtering the Internet is a bad idea

internet-censorship

Don’t get me wrong – we need to protect our kids, and educate them about the Internet the same way we teach them to cross a road and how to swim.

Somehow, without fail, everything do-gooders try to do always goes wrong.  They should stop messing around in other people’s lives.  Here’s a great example of an own-goal from the UK   Read more »

This has to come in under Nats

No 10 has a  plan to cap benefits at two children. New mothers with three children would lose £700 in £5bn welfare crackdown.

The proposal would mean parents with three children, who would currently be entitled to child benefit because their annual income is less than £50,000, would lose out on £696 a year.

The initiative has been put forward by Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi, recently appointed by David Cameron to the No 10 policy board to come up with vote-winning policies for the Conservative Election manifesto. Mr Zahawi is a close ally of Chancellor George Osborne, who said last week he was determined to find billions of pounds of extra savings in the welfare budget.

Opinion polls show strong public support for welfare cuts and the Tories say it is vital  to encourage greater responsibility. But the idea is likely to  be criticised by Labour as an attack on hard-up families.

The Tories say it is ‘nonsense’ to call the idea ‘social engineering’ or compare it to China’s ‘one child policy’ to curb population growth.

There comes a point when you’ve emptied the welfare cupboard and the burden on the net taxpayers is simply not sustainable.  Welfare stops being a safety net, and instead turns into a dragnet.   Of course, like irresponsible children, the left start to whine you’re taking their iPad away.   Read more »
