Let’s defend the rights of ALL women together.

I am sure that Liberals and Conservatives alike will agree with the statement that..

Segregation is an immoral concept designed to force one group of people into a separate, subordinate existence.

Where the two sides seem to diverge is who they want to protect from segregation and whose rights they want to actively fight for. The below article from 2013 makes an excellent argument for why Liberals and Conservatives alike should both be working together to defend the rights of all women.

Left Foot Forward has been at the forefront of the campaign against gender segregation at our Universities and rightly so. Segregation is an immoral concept designed to force one group of people into a separate, subordinate existence.

Laws: David Cameron is set to rush through new legislation making it easier to protect young girls from the threat of FGM

Laws: David Cameron is set to rush through new legislation making it easier to protect young girls from the threat of FGM

 Today’s face of the day David Cameron leads a government that is creating new laws to help protect girls in the UK from the horror of female genital mutilation. There are three types of genital mutilation but they all have one thing in common. They all cut off the girl’s clitoris. The goal of this mutilation is to take away all a woman’s pleasure in the sexual act. There is nothing in either the qur’an or the bible about this horrific practice which leads many to assume that it is a cultural rather than a religious practice.

The most ungrateful migrant in the world

Not many people get a second chance in life, but some get spectacular chances.

And then they blow it.

South London’s leafy district of Kennington is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. In this quiet area famous for its Georgian architecture, the average house price is more than £1 million.

It is full of young families, good schools, council housing and NHS doctors’ surgeries. Residents are proud of its strong, diverse, multi-cultural community spirit.

So one would imagine that when, in 2008, teenager Alaa Esayed found refuge here with her family from Iraq — where they had faced persecution, suicide bombings, terrorist attacks and constant fear — she would have treasured her new haven.

Offered sanctuary, housing, free education and healthcare, she and her family were at last being given an opportunity to thrive and prosper.

Instead, Esayed, who is now 22, used their Kennington home as a base from which to launch a jihadist hate campaign that has seen her dubbed the Twitter Terrorist.

From her bedroom, she posted images to Twitter of beheadings, mutilated corpses and any atrocity she could lay her hands on to promote the jihadi cause — 45,600 tweets in total, and an average of 58 a day. Read more »

Today’s face of the day according to Social Media and our own local Left wing Blog The Standard, was expected to win.
They predicted this despite publishing this….

It looks like The Standard has been infected by Wrongly Wrongson, the most wrong political commentator in New Zealand.

Personally I am ecstatic about Ed’s loss as I have been following his Islamic apologist raving for a while now. He is Jewish but is a Dhimmi who was willing to turn the UK into a country ruled by Sharia Law.

UK going to hell in a hand cart

Every police force in England and Wales will be required to record anti-Muslim hate crimes and treat them as seriously as anti-Semitic attacks if the Tories win the next General Election, Theresa May has announced.

In a move hailed by Islamic groups, Mrs May said that police will have to record Islamophobic attacks as a separate category, just as anti-Semitic crimes are recorded separately.

The new requirement will create the first accurate picture of the extent of Islamophobic hate crimes in Britain.

Charities say there has been a steady rise of anti-Muslim hate crimes since 9/11.

But after incidents such as the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside Woolwich barracks in 2013 and the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, there are spikes in incidents in the UK, say experts.

You don’t say?   So somehow the people that are upset about Islamic crime are now to be labelled and treated like holocaust deniers?    Read more »

UK pressures NZ to face up to ISIS responsibilities

SAS-Baddass

Not that John Key will mind, but the pressure for New Zealand to join the fight against ISIS is coming from the larger coalition partners, including the UK

The British Foreign Secretary has labelled New Zealand “family” and hopes it will join the fight against Islamic State.

Phillip Hammond is in New Zealand for the first time today for a meeting with New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully and Prime Minister John Key.

He also issued a stark reminder to New Zealand, saying it is not immune to threats of terrorism regardless of how remote its location might seem. Read more »

Brits continue to cower in the face of terrorism

[UK] Police have been told to remove their names from the electoral register, it was claimed today.

The alleged guidance from the Metropolitan Police in London comes as security was dramatically stepped up for officers and the Jewish community in Britain amid fears of a terror attack.

Intelligence chiefs are worried that Islamist fanatics could try to copy the atrocities in France earlier this month that cost 17 lives. Four Jewish people and three police officers were among the dead.

Fears of similar carnage in the UK intensified on Thursday after commandos in Belgium killed Islamic State fanatics who wanted to behead a policeman or a judge.

The plot held chilling echoes of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, in May 2013.

The guidance to Met officers was reported by The Sunday Times, which also claimed that an additional 800 counter-terrorism police could be deployed on Britain’s streets.

In addition, the newspaper said Scotland Yard was in talks with the Home Office about extra funding to fight the increased threat to Britain. Read more »

How to deal with lone wolf Jihadis – Part 2

In today’s series I am trying to figure out why countries are so concerned about lone wolf gunmen that have nothing to do with Ialam.   Here is part 2.

Security was dramatically stepped up for police officers and the Jewish community in Britain yesterday amid fears of a terror attack.

Intelligence chiefs are worried that Islamist fanatics could try to copy the atrocities in France last week that cost 17 lives.

Four Jewish people and three police officers were among the dead.

Fears of similar carnage in the UK intensified on Thursday after commandos in Belgium killed Islamic State fanatics who wanted to behead a policeman or a judge. The plot held chilling echoes of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Woolwich.

In other developments:

  • David Cameron and Barack Obama pledged to stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against terrorism;
  • Intelligence sources said as many as 20 sleeper cells with 180 fanatics could be ready to strike in Europe;
  • Nearly 800 people have been put on a Home Office programme targeting potential extremists;

I don’t want to deliberately overstate the problem, but as you know, the MSM keep telling us all the recent drama has nothing to do with Islam, and is just the result of a few individual nutters.

If you don’t mind me saying so, 800 people on an “extremists” list in the UK alone, and 20 “sleeper cells” in Europe certainly sounds like a serious non-Islamic lone wolf problem to me.  Read more »

How to deal with lone wolf Jihadis – Part 1

Security around the Duchess of Cambridge appeared to have been stepped up as she was guarded by Taser-wielding personal protection officers.

Her Scotland Yard bodyguards, including those in plain clothes, were seen wearing the controversial stun guns for the first time in addition to the conventional firearms they usually carry.

The officers were also thought to be wearing stab vests.

Onlookers noted that there appeared to be more back-up officers and police outriders accompanying Kate than normal.

I wonder why that may be?    Read more »

What is it with election campaigns and sourcing content?

A lot of posters and slogans and little video clips as well as music is considered for an election campaign.  You will remember the faux debacle about National using an “unlicensed” version of a song as a background track to their Row Boat video.

I myself have caught parties trying to sell stock shots as New Zealanders many times over.

A similar stoush is happening in the UK where the Torys have used a German landscape to whip people into frenzy about sticking to the steady UK economic road.
