A hiding to nothing?

Protestors at G8 Summit

Some people may say that this is a tad harsh, that the Police were reacting unnecessarily to the protestors. Why are the previous confrontations, involving missiles and weapons not shown?

You say to these people, especially the one with the angel wings, what’s all that rubbish about? She can’t fly, Cheryl Tweedy with Angel wings yes, because she deserves them, she is an Angel, no doubt.

Then that man at the end thinking he’s Jack Bauer on his Mobile telephone; can he strangle anyone with a cordless phone? No, well then he’s not Jack Bauer, he is a loser, who should get a real job.

These people should try living in Korea, they wouldn't even get the right to protest.

Yes these people have the right to protest, but in the end there is a time to give it a rest. Dressing up in silly outfits, with wings and fluffy hats isn’t the way to prove a point; it’s an easy way to get sectioned under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act though.

'A week can be, for some, a life changing time.'

Quote of the week:

‘If we retreat now, hand Iraq over to al-Qaeda and sectarian death squads and Afghanistan back to al-Qaeda and the Taliban, we won't be safer; we will be committing a craven act of surrender that will put our future security in the deepest peril.’ The Right Honorable Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the UK.

Joke of the week:

What is the difference between a feminist and a jet engine?

At some point, a jet engine will eventually run out of fuel and stop whining.

Your woman of the Week:

Abi Titmuss, when God made her, you believe he gave with two, round, wholesome, carefully sculptured hands.

Punchline of the week:

‘They know there isn't some fantasy Government where nothing difficult ever happens. They've got the Lib Dems for that.’ The Right Honorable Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the UK.

Moment of the week:

Tony Blair's speech at the Labour Party Conference. It was brilliant, passionate, direct, inspiring and humorous. People seem to be forgetting that he is one of the most successful Prime Ministers in this great country's history. One of the best moments of his speech was when he stood his ground on the War in Iraq, he defended his decision with skill and grace.

Labour will find it impossible to replace him, and his shoes hard to fill, he is a truly great man.

Selfish, not selfless.

On a light note, isn't she a beauty:

Now, down to business:

Some people just don't know what they are saying, they jump on a bandwagon and they use others to futher their own agenda. Take these protestors for example:

If their country was being held hostage by a tyranical dictator, who executed mass roundups, firing squads, killed innocent women and children and disposed of them using mass graves, they would be the first to welcome Coalition Forces, to welcome anyone who would help them.

What is the point in having a 'Peacekeeping' organisation, if it cannot be deployed to keep the peace?

These people ask for the troops to be brought home from war. What is the point of having troops if they cannot go to war?

Perhaps these protesters have convenient amnesia, here is a reminder. Blair and Bush have decided that they won't stand by and watch the slaugter of innocent people, they have decided to do the right thing.

If people don't agree with doing the right thing, with helping people in need, that is fine, they have the right to free speech. But you also have the right to free speech, and you say these people are selfish, heartless and should put themselves in the shoes of the people in Iraq, who were suffering everyday.

Positive Action?

Police Officers are called to a Recruitment Event where things have turned nasty after potential applicants were met with a warm welcome:

The enemy within?

Have a read:,,2-2006440139,00.html

Then imagine this scene:

Recruitment Officer: 'Sorry you can't come in.'
Potential Applicant: 'Why?'
Recruitment Officer: 'No white males are allowed to apply, sorry.'
Potential Applicant: 'But i'm homosexual.'
Recruitment Officer: 'Well that's a different story, when are you available to become a Student Police Officer?'

Some people say that if they were to indicate that they are a female homosexual Asian they can book a place as a Student Officer even before they have filled out the application, you suggest people read the link above and make up their own mind.

The Police Force (you refuse to call it a service) should be more representative of the community it polices, you have no objection to this.

But achieving this goal by rejecting people or accepting people based on Colour, Sexuality or Gender is a non starter, because how can a Police Force punish racism and discrimination if they themselves are actively engaging in it?

'Life is to toilet as petrol is to car.'

You recently posted a comment on another blog:

About how any woman can destroy a man's life, even if he is innocent. Some people seem to have got the wrong impression, you would like to set them straight with a few bullet points:

* According to one of the respondents you have pictures of women's breasts on your blog everyday, really? There are no nude photos of women on your blog, period.

* Any man who rapes a woman deserves to be castrated and put in jail for life.

* You wouldn't want women wearing bags over their heads all the time, because there would be almost no reason to leave the house, afterall, a woman is more beautiful if you can witness her entire being.

* A woman who feels that she has been used by a man, for sex, can make his life hell without any effort at all. All it takes is a flase allegation, crocodile tears, a few acting classes and a good performance infront of a jury.

* The British Justice System is innocent until proven guilty, but apparently not in rape cases.

* Any woman who makes a false allegation of rape and then recants it should be charged with wasting police time and have the book thrown at her.

You also include a few links for others to read, pehaps they will not be so quick to slate you in future:

'Regarding this study, 41% of the total disposed rape cases were officially declared false during a 9-year period, that is, by the complainant's admission that no rape had occurred and the charge, therefore, was false.' Eugene J. Kanin, Ph.D.

The next thing you are going to say might not be the way to win readers and influence people, but it has to be said.

Yes women get raped, everyday, and the men/women who do this need to be punished, you think life in prison with only bread and water is appropriate. But like it or not, false allegations of rape are common. Buyer's remorse, feeling used after a one night stand, wanting to save face, you could go on. These are only some of the reasons why women would make false allegations.

If people don't think that false allegations go on, and are prepared to defend the women who make these allegations, then they should wake up, grow up and realise that even if a man is cleared of raping a woman, on the basis that she has recanted her statement, his life will remain in the toilet where she put it.

Food for thought, perhaps?

‘For England James?’

Why do people do what they do? What makes a person rush into a burning building to save someone they do not even know? What makes a person run towards chaos when everyone else is running the other way? What makes a person shoot someone and walk away without a second thought? One word ladies and gentlemen, personality.

When a fire fighter was asked by a bystander why he was going back into the world trade centre, he said to this person:

‘It’s my job.’

There are certain kinds of people, why they do what they do it is not always a mystery:

The Mercenary: For the money; they do not care about helping people, about making a difference or changing society for the better, it’s all about the pay at the end of the month and whether or not they can get overtime.

The Power Monger: For the power, they long to be able to shout and command people, to be able to ruin people’s lives, when really the person they need to look at is themselves.

The Joker: It's about the laughs, nothing is serious, nothing matters except to be amusing.

The Idealist: They claim they do it for themselves, that they don’t care about anyone but those they go home to at the end of the day. But in reality they harbour a sense of heroism, justice and compassion.

The Hero: To be noticed, to be recognised and to save lives. When it comes down to a matter of life or death, the hero volunteers to risk it all.

The Patriot: For England, there will never be another reason.

Everyone harbours at least a resemblance of one of these personalities inside them, whether they are Police Officers, Office Workers, Bus Drivers or even Students.

You know it is best to be yourself, not caring about what other people think, because acting as if you are someone you are not, is not a life, but a play, a fabrication and a lie, and living a lie is not living at all.
