Twat of the Week: Sir Ian Blair

The polling booths are now closed, the votes have all been counted and here are the results of the English jury:

Peter Hain 40%12
Ian Blair 47%14
Gordon Brown 3%1
David Cameron 3%1
John Prescott 3%1
Charles Clarke 3%1
30 votes total

Sir Ian Blair, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Force, made some very thoughtless comments about the Soham murders last week. In the past few months, he has presided over a police force that shot a restrained Brazilian "suspected muslim terrorist" in the head 11 times at point blank range and then lied about what happened. He also supported the British government's attempts to allow detention of "terrorist suspects" for up to 3 months without charge and supports the introduction of ID cards, another assault on our freedom. He is also so politically correct as to be offensive.

Sir Ian Blair, you are this week's Twat of the Week. My gut feeling is that this won't be the only time either.

Racial and Religious Hatred Bill DEFEATED!

Fantastic news! The Racial and Religious Hatred Bill has been defeated today and will pass into law with a very important Lords amendment.

The Lords returned the bill to Parliament with 4 amendments, 2 of which were accepted. The important one is the amendment which says that to be guilty of racial or religious hatred under this bill, someone must use threatening or violent behaviour. This is, of course, already a crime but who cares? The bill as it stood was a serious assault on free speech and liberty.

Labour lost the first vote on the bill by 10 votes. A further vote was taken which they lost by 1 vote. The absolute best thing about it is that the bill would have passed if Princess Tony hadn't allowed 20 MP's to be in Scotland for by-election campaigning and if the smug git hadn't been so sure of a victory that HE DECIDED THAT HE DIDN'T NEED TO CAST A VOTE! Tony's vote would have made it a draw and the Speaker of the House, a Scottish Labour flunky, would have cast the deciding vote which would almost certainly have been a yes!

Charles Clarke has accepted the defeat and confirmed that the bill will pass into law with the Lords amendments before grumbling that his opponents had ulterior motives.

If I listen very carefuly, I can just about hear Tony's empire falling down around his ears all the way up here in Shropshire.

Happy Birthday to me

I have just made the move from mid-twenties to late-twenties. I am 28 today and what better end could there be to my birthday than seeing Traitor Blair suffer two defeats on the same day on the same legislation? Unless Mrs Sane has anything for me later ...

National Front still stealing my blog entries

Despite emailing the National Front a few days ago drawing their attention to my copyright message (bottom of the page) and asking them to remove all content taken from my blog from their websites, the content is still there and I have yet to receive a reply.

Traitor will resign within 2 years

According to BBC News, the Traitor Blair will resign in 1-2 years time and hand over the reins to the ignorant jock.

No election, no contest, Gordon Brown will take over leadership of the Labour Party and the country. Labour already have no mandate to govern England since they lost the general election in England last year but in two years time a man who has yet to stand in an election and ask to be elected as the leader of our country will take over the top job and there's nothing the general public can do about it.

As Prime Minister, he will spend 80% of his time dealing only with England and will have no say in the majority of matters affecting his own constituents in Scotland. When the next election does come, it will be his Scottish constituents who decide whether to elect him or not and why wouldn't they? Having a Prime Minister as your MP can be pretty useful and he can't exactly do a bad job as most of the things affecting his constituents are under the control of the Scottish Parliament.

Letter: Shropshire Star

Very heavily and badly edited. They've added "I believe" and "I think" in there where I have made a categorical statement.

Parliament will handle all health problems

Daniel Kawczynski, the MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham, recently told his parliamentary colleagues that the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is losing £2 million per year treating Welsh patients.

While the Welsh Assembly is drawing up plans to prevent English people from travelling across the border to Wales to get free prescriptions, some Welsh patients, I believe, are travelling to Shrewsbury to be treated because the RSH is closer to them than the Welsh hospitals.

This, in itself, wouldn't be a problem if the Welsh Assembly paid the going rate for the treatment of their patients but unfortunately they don't and the already heavily debt-ridden Royal Shrewsbury Hospital has to absorb the shortfall.

As if this weren't bad enough, I feel Welsh patients get better treatment.

And to rub salt into the wounds, it is the taxes that the English patients have paid that are then paying for the treatment the Welsh patients are receiving.

People in England are losing out to the discriminatory policies of the Scottish Raj in Westminster.

An English parliament that has the same powers as the Scottish parliament would give England control of its own national health system.

Shropshire MPs are all campaigning very hard to prevent cutbacks and closures in our local hospitals -perhaps they should be tackling the root cause of the problem,

Until we get our own parliament and control of our own affairs, we will forever be third-class citizens in our own country.

Mrs Sane on her jollies

Mr Sane went away for the weekend with her mother today, she'll be back on Monday.

I have just spent day 1 in sole charge of our 4 children. It's not the first time but I was a bit apprehensive about having them all for four days by myself.

Today has actually gone really well, they've all been fairly well behaved and (here's the surprising bit) I have remained cool, calm and collected the whole day.

Tommy English gets his own blog

Tommy English has finally taken the plunge and got himself a blog of his own.

Twat of the Week voting

You're spoilt for choice this week - six equally deserving candidates. I predict a close vote this week.

A brief run-down (quite literally) of the candidates:

Peter Bigot Hain
Stopping Welsh MP's from voting on English laws would be "dangerous and wrong".

Sir Ian Blair
Using the Soham murders as ammo for his drive to convince everyone the police are racist.

Gordon Ignorant Jock Brown
Two-faced bullshit about Britishness.

David Cameron
Generally a twat.

John Fat Turd Prescott
I don't think he needs any introduction.

Charles Clarke
Determined to force English police forces to merge even though they don't want to and the public don't want to.

Democracy for all ... as long as you get the right result

Israeli-occupied Palestine has held parliamentary elections and militant group Hamas has won by a massive majority.

One of the key parts of the "roadmap" to peace was free and fair elections in Palestine.

The elections attracted a 77% turnout and Hamas took 58% of the vote. There have been no accusations of vote rigging or electoral fraud as far as I can tell. In fact, the only criticism seems to be from EU election monitors who criticised the tight restrictions Israel imposed on voting in Jerusalem which is also illegally occupied by Israel.

So what's the problem?

Well, militant group is another way of calling them terrorists. They are also refusing to retract their call for the destruction of Israel, the country that has been illegally occupying their country for x number of years with the help of the UK and the US. Israel and the US are refusing to deal with Hamas because it wasn't the result they wanted.

I don't condone terrorism but I can understand why groups like Hamas have emerged and why they have gained so much support. Israel is the worst offender on the planet for refusing to comply with UN resolutions even though the US vetoes roughly 2/3rds of them. Not only have Israel been occupying Palestine illegally but they are also occupying the international city of Jerusalem which is still officially under a UN mandate and belongs to no country under international law.

It seems that democracy is only good if it gets the right result.

Letter from David Wright MP

I sent an email to David Wright the other day and received a reply from him a couple of days ago.

Dear David,

I trust this email finds you well?

I am writing to you regarding the proposed education reforms the lovely Ms Kelly is trying to inflict on our children.

Firstly, I would ask you to oppose the bill when it is voted on. I appreciate that this is government policy and you don't like rebelling (you're the 182nd most rebellious MP in Westminster out of 605, did you know that?) but the education reforms I think are particularly poor. While the bill has some positive benefits, it basically means that children who are expected to do badly are going to be left at the bottom of the pile and receive a second rate education.

Secondly, I would urge you to address the issue of Scottish and Welsh MP's that are determined to not only vote in this English-only bill, but to influence the proposals themselves. I note that Lord Kinock is leading supporters of a rebel amendment. Quite why he thinks he has any
right to interfere I don't know but, of course, you can't speak for other people - particularly those in a different country. Anyway, my suggestion is that whenever a Scottish or Welsh MP's gets up to speak on the bill that you shout "NO MANDATE" as loudly as possible.

I will make every effort to watch the debate on BBC Parliament and I hope to see yourself and your colleagues heckling our Scottish and Welsh masters.


Stuart Parr

p.s. Please would you reply by email? Parliamentary expenses claims are
worryingly large and cutting down on stationary and postage will help.

p.p.s. Good luck with the fight to save the PRH. Did you see my
suggestion in the Shropshire Star that we ask for Shropshire's
contribution to the Scottish subsidy to be waived for 2 years which will
be enough to pay the debts with change left over?

The reply I got wasn't by email as I requested but beggars can't be choosers.

Mr Stuart Parr

Dear Mr Parr

Thank you for your recent e-mail about the Education White Paper. There is a great deal that is good in the Government's proposals, but you are right that there are some concerns being expressed, particularly about admissions policy and about the role of local education authorities.

There are on-going discussions on the proposals, and there is as yet no date set for the introduction of the legislation. I will of course be taking a very close interest in the subject.

I have to disagree with you about Lord Kinnock. He is a member of the House of Lords and a distinguished past Leader of the Labour Party who I believe has every right to express his views on government policy.

You also raise the issue of local hospital services. I have spoken on a number of occasions to both the Secretary of State and the Minister of State for Health. I attended a key meeting with the financial consultant working for the Hospital Trust and the PCTs prior to Christmas, and I have had a series of one to one discussions with the Hospital Trusts' Chief Executive. He has indicated his wish to retain two District General Hospitals with A&E services which is extremely positive news. The proposals to bring the financial situation under control are to be published at the end of February.

Yours sincerely

Lib Dems demand ethnic diversity

Ok, the Lib Dems are well know for being wishy washy collaborators but this really takes the piss.

A group of Lib Dems has launched a campaign to make the party more representative of ethnic diversity in Britain.

Because all of the 62 Lib Dem MP's are white, they are setting themselves the task of getting a black or asian MP elected in the next elections.

Who'd have thought it, eh? Institutional racism in the lefty liberal party?

Or perhaps not. Perhaps (brace yourself the Lib Dems don't have any black or asian MP's because the people in the constituencies where they stood didn't want to vote for them? Just a thought.

Expect to see a whole raft of black and asian candidates parachuted in to Lib Dem strongholds and the yellow needle on the swingometer go so far off the bottom end of the scale that it snaps off.

Don't you just love quotas? It's reassuring to know that however unsuitable someone might be for a particular job, they will be in with a good chance of getting it if they can help hit diversity targets.

Right of centre, moi?

I was surprised and rather flatter if I admit it, to find that I am number 20 in Iain Dale's top 25 political blogs.

Iain Dale is a Tory MP and was David Davis' campaign manager in the recent leadership election during which Davis turned from English nationalist to uber-unionist almost overnight in order to try and win the leadership contest.

Apparently, I am a right of centre nationalist. If I had to pigeon-hole myself I would have put myself slightly left of centre but I accept that I can be right-wing at times and probably more so when I get wound up. Perhaps I'm getting more right wing in my old age.

Well, thanks for the plug Iain and I hope that my future writings/rantings inspire you to publicly support and campaign for an English Parliament.

Dear National Front reader ...

Would the National Front member who occasionally syndicates entries from my blog on the National Front website, please read and respect the the copyright message at the bottom of my blog.

I do not want any links to or from the National Front or any other similar organisation and I expressly forbid the use of material from my blog on their websites.

Twat of the Week nominations

I reckon the Bigot Hain has got to be in with a chance this time.

As usual, either reply to this post or contact me. Voting will commence on Friday, maybe Saturday depending on how many nominations I get.

Charles Clarke threatens new law to merge police forces

Charles Clarke has threatened a new law to force unwilling police forces to merge.

Most police forces are opposed to the idea and most people are opposed to the idea.

Don't forget, Charles Clark promised a vote in Parliament (which Scottish and Welsh MP's will vote on, even though it only affects England) and public consultation before he made a decision but no mention of it in this latest pronouncement.

One thing has dawned on me though. The number of police forces in England, under Charles Clarke's proposals, will become equivalent to roughly one per 5 million people. Why is there no proposal for a single Scottish force which only has a population of 5 million people?

English farmers screwed over for a change

English famrers are once again being screwed over although this time it has nothing to do with the French.

Farming subsidies have been paid to Welsh farmers by the Welsh Assembly and to Scottish farmers by the Scottish Parliament. English famers are still waiting for their payments from DEFRA due to a combination of incompetence and some bizarre, off-the-wall method of calculating the subsidy.

As if this wasn't bad enough, the revenue have informed farmers that they will still be expected to pay their tax bill on time otherwise they will be fined (illegally but that's another matter), hauled before a magistrate and charged interest.

A lot of farmers, quite rightly in my opinion, are asking why they are expected to take out tens of thousands of pounds of finance to pay their tax bills when the state owes them tens of thousands of pounds in farming subsidies.

My local rag, the Shropshire Star, covered the story not long ago because a lot of farmers have land that straddles the English-Welsh border and the local farmers markets and shows attract a lot of Welsh farmers. The Welsh farmers are sympathetic toward their English counterparts but happy that their government have got their finger out of their arse and sorted them out. The English farmers with land on both sides of the border are pissed off but grateful they have something at least, courtesy of the Welsh government and the English farmers, I imagine, are pretty damn envious of the rest because one again being English means being shit on.


It's about time Tommy English got his own blog! He just sent me this joke ...


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.



The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

So far, so good, eh?

The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others less fortunate, like him, are cold and starving.

The BBC shows up to provide live coverage of the shivering grasshopper, with cuts to a video of the ant in his comfortable warm home in Hampstead with a table laden with food.

The British are stunned that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so while others have plenty.

The Liberal Party, the Respect Party, the Transvestites With Starving Babies Party and the Coalition Against Poverty demonstrate in front of the ant's house. The BBC, interrupting a Rastafarian cultural festival special from Grimsby with breaking news, broadcasts them singing "We Shall Overcome."

Ken Livingstone laments in an interview with Panorama that the ant has got rich off the backs of grasshoppers, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his "fair share".

In response, the Labour Government drafts the Economic Equity and grasshopper Anti-Discrimination Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant's taxes are reassessed, and he is also fined for failing to hire grasshoppers as helpers. Without enough money to pay the fine and his newly imposed retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by Camden Council.

The ant moves to France, and starts a successful agribiz company [funded by the EU].

The BBC later shows the now fat grasshopper finishing up the last of the ant's food, though Spring is still months away, while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he hasn't bothered to maintain it.

Inadequate government funding is blamed, Diane Abbot is appointed to head a commission of enquiry that will cost £10,000,000. The grasshopper is soon dead of a drug overdose; the Guardian blames it on the obvious failure of government to address the root causes of despair arising from social inequity.

The abandoned house is taken over by a gang of immigrant spiders, praised by the Labour government for enriching Britain's multicultural diversity, who promptly set up a coke processing operation and terrorise the community.

Twat of the Week: Gordon Brown

Terribly close voting this week. I checked first thing this morning and the ignorant jock and bigot were still neck and neck with 12 votes each. Luckily two people saved me exercising my braincells and made the decision for me by voting for the ignorant jock.

Final standings are as follows:

Peter Hain 38% 12
Gordon Brown 44% 14
Menzies Campbell 3% 1
George Galloway 9% 3
Neil Kinnock 6% 2

A very deserving first place to Gordon "Ignorant Jock" Brown and and equally deserving close second to Peter "Bigot" Hain.

I have the great pleasure in pronouncing Gordon Brown as this week's Twat of the Week.

Oh yes, and one final thing if you read this Gordon ...

Twat of the Week voting update

Wow! Excitement!

There has been a sudden surge in voting for the ignorant jock, bringing him neck and neck with Hain the bigot.

Peter Hain took an early lead Friday lunchtime and has been lounging in the number one spot ever since but it appears that Gordon Brown's supporters have had a second wind leaving both candidates with 9 votes each.

The winner will be announced some time tomorrow morning. Until then, every vote counts.

Twat of the Week voting - almost out of time!

An abundance of twats this week and the voting reflects that.

It's a pretty close run thing at the moment with only 2 votes separating the two favourites.

If you haven't already cast your vote then you can do so here.

Number two son has obviously been a bit overexcited and overtired today (it's his 6th birthday) because Mrs Sane went upstairs to bed half an hour ago to find him lying in bed covered in sick. He hadn't even woken up.

Letter: Shropshire Star

Chancellor has reason for pushing his agenda

Gordon Brown wants us all to celebrate Britishness and wave the Union Flag.

Why is he so obsessed with flogging the long dead horse that is Britishness?

The whole concept of a United Kingdom was swept away with the introduction of a system of devolution which saw Scotland and Wales join Northern Ireland in getting their own government but left out England.

To add insult to injury, the Welsh are soon to get a second referendum on devolution while the English are still waiting for their first!

Gordon Brown has only one reason for promoting Britishness - if he is to stand even the remotest chance of being accepted as a British Prime Minister then he must first convince us that we are all British first and foremost.

Tony Blair might be able to conceal the fact that he is Scottish with an English accent and constituency, Gordon Brown has neither.

Therefore, his only hope is to gloss over the fact that, as a Scottish MP, he would be presiding over a British government that spends 80% of it's time dealing with matters that affect only England.

Twat of the Week Nominations

Twat of the Week nominations are now open. You can either use the contact form or leave a nomination in the comments.

I'll post a poll up tomorrow (Friday) evening/Saturday morning.

Nominations so far:
Peter "Bigot" Hain
Gordon "Ignorant Jock" Brown
Menzies "Ming the Merciless" Campbell
George "Saddam's Bitch" Galloway
Neil "Nosey Twat" Kinnock

Peter Hain = Bigot

No explanation needed other than the following quote (important bits in bold):

PETER Hain last night insisted a bid to ban Welsh MPs voting on across-the-border issues would risk "fanning the flames of English nationalism."

The Welsh secretary launched a scathing attack on legislation introduced in the House of Lords by former Tory home secretary Lord Baker.

He said it was "unacceptable" Welsh and Scottish MPs voted on issues which do not affect their constituencies, because they were dealt with by devolved assemblies in Cardiff or Edinburgh.

Under his blueprint, the speaker of the House of Commons would have the power to stop English, Welsh, Scottish or Northern Ireland MPs from debating and voting on legislation which does not affect their regions.

Lord Baker, who served in Margaret Thatcher's cabinet as Kenneth Baker, said: "The supremacy of Westminster has been divided.

"The only way we are going to keep the UK together is by not accepting a manifest unfairness for England."

But Mr Hain branded the peer's bill "dangerous and wrong."

He said: "To prevent Welsh MPs from voting on certain classes of parliamentary business would consign them to second class status and would disenfranchise Welsh voters.

"It would undermine key pillars of our constitution and risks fanning the flames of English nationalism.

"The government believes that to go down this route would be dangerous and wrong and we have no intention of doing so."

The issue, known historically as the West Lothian question, was repeatedly highlighted as Welsh MPs vote on education and health proposals which only affect England.

The Bill will be debated in the Lords in February but is unlikely to become law without government backing.

Letter: Shropshire Star

Time for a flap over flags use

I would like to thank both Robert Jenkins and Councillor John Smart for replying to me.

I remember the battle to have the Union Flag flown over the council buildings.

The Queen commands that if the EU flag is flown then the Union Flag must also be flown in a superior position so how they got away with it for so long in the first place is a mystery.

Hopefully people power will prevail again and we will see our national flag, the Cross of St George, flown in place of the EU nag.

Giving the flag of the EU the same status as our national flags at a time when one of the EU's own surveys shows that the majority of Britons are euro sceptic shows that the British government sees England as nothing more than a collection of European regions and not a country at alL

Telford & Wrekm Council carried out a survey a few years ago amongst their carefully selected community panel, the results of which determined which lags fly over the buildings.

As the results of the survey included the EU flag, the chief executive of the council hasn't made any effort to see what people want now.

Every where I go in Telford I see English flags on people's cars and flags hanging from their windows.

How many cars do you see with EU flags on them?

Austria proposes EU tax

Source: BBC News

As promised, the Austrian President, in his capacity as EU President, has introduced a proposal for an EU tax.

He says that he knows that giving the EU the power to directly tax people won't be popular but it is, apparently, necessary. He very kindly explains why it is necessary - to stop the arguments and bad feeling about the EU budget and allow the EU to set themselves a huge, bloated budget without the interference of national governments.

I liked this quote:
It's absurd that today short-term financial transactions are completely
exempted from tax.

Yes, how absurd that something should be exempt from tax. How can society possibly continue to function unless every minute aspect of our lives is taxed?

Short-term financial transactions are, of course, one of the things he proposes the EU tax.

English Icons: have your say .. for 3 months

I read an article in tonight's Shropshire Star about the Icons website which has spent the last year or so (and £1m of English taxes) diligently getting the public's opinion on what the top English Icons are.

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport then relaunched the site last week with a British government approved top ten list of multi-culti British icons which we are supposed to revere as the saviour of our culture.

I now find myself asking the question why the Icons website is bothering to take votes from teh public at all because, despite the top ten list being almost totally replaced within days with the icons English people originally voted for, they plan to replace the list with another multi-culti approved list of top ten icons in 3 months time.

Perhaps they don't trust English people who could vote fox hunting into first place despite clear instructions from the Labour Party that hunting foxes with dogs is very naughty and we really don't want it to carry on no matter how much we protest against the ban.

Daniel Kawczynski

Daniel Kawczynski, Conservative MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham, has been talking about the problems experienced in Shropshire since Welsh devolution.

One of his points is about the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital losing £2m per year treating Welsh patients because the Welsh Assembly pays a fraction of the price of treating them while they also get superior treatment and drugs.

It all sounds kind of ... familiar. Kind of like this and this and some of the comments on other English nationalist blogs. Perhaps Mr Kazywinkiskiskiski has been doing his research?

Parliament (Participation of Members of the House of Commons) Bill

When I wrote English MPs rebel at prospect of Scots MP as PM I missed out possibly the most important part of that article.

Today, Lord Baker of Dorking introduced the Parliament (Participation of Members of the House of Commons) Bill which will "provide for the Speaker of the House of Commons to have power to determine the eligibility of Members of the House of Commons to participate in certain legislative proceedings of that House."

This is effectively the Tory policy of English Votes on English Matters which is, frankly, never going to work. However, it is important that the bill was introduced because it means that there are politicians out there who are aware of what is happening to England and are prepared to do something about it.

There is also a private members bill being introduced to Parliament soon by the father of the house, Alan Williams MP, which would create a full English Parliament along the lines of the Scottish Parliament. It stands about as much chance as a ghosts fart in a force 10 gale but again, it is an important step and all the more important because Alan Williams is a Labour MP.

Finally, while I am on the subject, there are rebel amendments to the Government of Wales Bill - some of which I believe have originated from the CEP - which will automatically trigger a referendum in England should the Welsh Assembly get their increased powers.

All in all, some promising work from some of our elected representatives for a change.

Lords reject ID Cards

Source: BBC News

The Lords have rejected the ID Cards bill, sending it back to the Commons with instructions to find out how much it will cost before they try again.

The British government have been a bit slippery over the issue of cost for ID Cards with their latest excuse being that government departments will have the option to buy into the scheme or not which means they can't estimate the costs.

On a related note, the British govenrment also plan to send out ID Cards with passports from 2008. I thought the scheme was supposed to be voluntary...

English MPs rebel at prospect of Scots MP as PM

Once again, we in England have to rely on Scotland's daily press to report on English politics.

The Scotsman today has this story about English MP's starting to rebel over the Scottish Raj as one of their top stories.

This is a big story in England but why are the English papers ignoring it? What is so important in England that the English newspapers haven't been able to fit in such a major story that would educate and interest millions?

Well, The Sun has a front page story telling us how we will all forgive Sven if England win the World Cup. A story of vital importance, I'm sure you'll agree. Who knows how many people would have been traumatised without instructions from the Sun as to what they should think about Sven.

The Mirror concentrates on how a "blundering" British government department let the Mirror set up a childrens charity in the name of a paedophile with no checks. An admirable exposé of lax security but why would they necessarily check out the name of a person running a charity against a list of paedophiles? What if his name was John Smith? And a childrens charity collecting money for children doesn't necessarily mean they have contact with children.

The Daily Mail appears to think George Galloway signing early motions while he is starring in Big Brother is the most pressing issue in the news today.

I don't have time to trawl through the rest of the papers to bring you more thrilling and important stories (including the one about Jordan being into outdoor sex) but I am reliably informed that this story hasn't hit any of the English national press.

Gordon Brown's Worst Nightmare

Courtesy of the EDP, the Ignorant Jock's worst nightmare ...

Twat of the Week: John Prescott

This week's Twat of the Week was a very close run thing with Gordon "Ignorant Jock" Broooon and John "Fat Turd" Prescott vying for the top position with the two-faced liar Simon Hughes languishing in third place throughout.

The final results were:
Fat Turd: 8 votes
Ignorant Jock: 7 votes
Two-Faced Liar: 2 votes

So it gives me great pleasure to present John Prescott with the coveted Twat of the Week award. Again.

Parliament Protester disappears

There's got to be a reason why this man who was arrested outside parliament for protesting has disappeared and the police deny all knowledge of him being arrested in the first place.

What do we reckon? Plain old incompetence or something more sinister? Perhaps Cherie Bliar or Jeremy Corbyn MP have some information? They were also present at the protest but the police didn't arrest them.

University Tuition Fees to be abolished in England

... but only if you do voluntary work which will, according to Gordon Broooon, encourage "strong modern patriotism" and "an agreed British national purpose".

His constituents in Scotland will continue to get free university tuition paid for by the English without needing to give up their studying time to clean graffiti off walls.

If Gordy is looking for some slave labour, might I suggest that all the asylum seekers and unemployed people in this country who are being paid not to work are made to do "voluntary" work to pay for their benefits?

Letter: Shropshire Star

Another letter in the Shropshire Star. I wrote this a while ago and realised subsequently that my maths was a bit duff but I didn't contact them with a correction because it had been so long since I sent it to them.

The amount we subsidise the rest of the country is actually double what I put so I will have to send them a correction.

England in need of its own taxes for NHS

It was good to see so many people turning out to protest against the cuts to Shropshire's health service.

Unfortunately, I can't see it making much difference -there is no money left for us.

The Barnett Formula is what the British Government uses to decide how much of our English tax money goes to subsidise services in the rest of the UK.
The subsidy costs every English man, woman and child in the region of £65 per year each.

Multiply this by the 283,000 people in Shropshire and you get £18.4 million or less than half the £36 million debt our hospitals are in.

This subsidy pays for the extra services our neighbours enjoy - free prescriptions, free care and heating for the elderly, better and more expensive cancer treatments and many, many more - none of which are available to English people.

Why should we lose hospitals and services and receive inferior treatment because of a lack of funds while the health services in Scotland and Wales are getting bigger and better?

We should be writing to our MPs, asking them to demand that English taxes are spent on English people until such time as our own services are at least of an equivalent level to those enjoyed at our expense in the rest of the UK.

There is an old saying "cut your cloth to suit your pocket". Something our Scottish and Welsh friends could do with learning.

Stuart Parr

Britification takes a step forward

Gordon Broooooon has reached chapter 6 in the Scottish Raj's red book - Britification for Dummies.

His latest proposal is for a British Day, a day where we can celebrate our nationality.

Sounds like St Georges Day.

But no, the nationality in question is, of course, British and not English. To celebrate your Englishness is wrong, racist, intolerant. You must be British and proud of it like the Scots and Welsh ... stop laughing, I'm being serious here.

The Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond, has told Gordy that he's waving the wrong flag for Scotland, they're Scottish, not British. He's told him that this Britishness crap (my words, not his) is just an attempt to give himself credibility as a British Prime Minister with a Scottish constituency.

For once, Mr Salmond has hit the nail right on the head because that's what it's all about.

How much support is a Scottish Prime Minister from a Scottish constituency going to get when 80% of the work of the British government affects only England, leaving less than 20% affecting his own constituents? Sweet F.A., that's how much and that's why he is putting in so much effort of late to try and turn English people into mindless British drones with these endless British initiatives.

Scottish people are never going to feel British, Welsh people are never going to feel British and Northern Irish people are never going to feel British. His only hope is to ramp up the process of Britification that has been ticking over quietly in the background carefully replacing English with British whenever possible.

British Day would have about as much value as Europe Day and trying to promote Britishness as an alternative to Englishness is a pointless waste of time, money, effort and resources that could otherwise be spent on more worthwhile causes that would actually benefit the UK. Like an English Parliament for example.

St George is Cross.

Twat of the Week Nominations

I'm now taking nominations for Twat of the Week.

I'll create a poll Saturday evening/Sunday morning with the nominations received.

Nominations so far:

Simon Hughes
John "Fat Turd" Prescott

Fat Turd pays council tax

Deputy Prime Minister, John "Fat Turd" Prescott, has paid his council tax bill at last.

Despite the CEP, other blogs and the press making public the news that the man in charge of council tax hasn't been paying any, he claims that he didn't realise it wasn't being paid.

He has now paid back just over £3,800 of council tax to the British government who have been paying his council tax bills for him.

According to Prescott's department it was an "inadvertent error" and "based on a genuine misunderstanding".

According to the Conservatives, it was only because of a "sustained campaign" of parliamentary questions and Freedom of Information Act requests that resulted in him confessing.

Simon Hughes doesn't support English Parliament now

What is it with politicians? They get a sniff of power and all of a sudden their principles and beliefs go out of the window.

David Davis supported an English Parliament - he even co-sponsored a bill for one to be setup which was rejected. He stood for the Tory leadership and, realising that a pro-English stance would get him nowhere, he abandoned the idea of an English Parliament that he had supported for so long.

Now it's the turn of Simon Hughes. He has been a supporter of an English Parliament for years and now the leadership of the Lib Dems is up for grabs he's dropped his support for it.

I don't know what the worst thing is - the fact that the potential leader of a political party can so easily abandon something they've believed in and campaigned for so easily or the fact that to even stand a remote chance of leading a political party they have to become Anglophobic.

Education failing 1 million pupils

The National Audit Office says that a million pupils in England are being failed by unsatisfactory education.

The British government has trotted out the usual answer - throw money at the problem and shut down failing schools.

Firstly, if they shut down the failing school where are the pupils that attend it going to go? Then there's the upheaval caused by moving schools and making new friends which will undoubtably have an effect on their performance at their new school and a knock-on effect on the performance of their new school as a whole.

Secondly, where is the extra money coming from? Will the British government stop subsidising Scottish and Welsh education so heavily with English money and use that? Will they buggery - it'll come from increased taxes levied on the English as usual.

Note that there appears to be no concern over the state of education outside of England - maybe it's the extra few million pounds of English money they get for education that makes the difference.

Hewitt supporting full smoking ban

Source: BBC News

Labour Health Minister, Patricia Hewitt, is planning to support a rebel amendment to turn the partial smoking ban planned for England into a full smoking ban.

You can almost hear Princess Tony's empire falling down round his ears.

Free prescriptions for all ... Scottish people

According to BBC News, it looks like all Scots will soon be enjoying free prescriptions.

The Scots already get 92% of their prescriptions free of charge but a group of Scottish socialist MP's has been pushing for the final 8% to be made free at a cost of between £40-45m to the Scottish NHS English taxpayer.

Prescription charges in England will remain at £6.50 each until the next increase is announced while services are cut and hospitals closed to try and keep the debt-ridden English NHS afloat.

Next time you hand over your hard earned cash at the chemist or your gran has her knee replacement cancelled for the 3rd time because your local NHS trust can't afford it, remember our glorious leader's words: Scotland & England together on equal terms.

Smoking ban may breach human rights!

A joint committee of British MP's and peers is discussing the possibility that the proposed partial ban on smoking in England will breach human rights.

There's no mention of the full ban in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland breaching human rights though.

Letter of the Week

And the winner of the Shropshire Star's letter of the week for this week is ... Obsession bypassing our views on merger.

They didn't tell me I'd won, I only found out when the mother-in-law phoned me to tell me that I'd won it (my newspaper gets delivered later than hers).

Icons site is a sham

The Icons site is a complete sham - just look at the comments which the icons people have put next to the top 20 icons for proof that this is another Britification exercise.

The current number one icon is the BT Tower with the following comment next to it:
Opened in 1965, a symbol of Britain in the time of Harold
Wilson's 'white heat of technology'. The tallest building in the UK
1981, it is an iconic part of the London skyline and still an
important part of the UK's communications infrastructure

David Hay

Then there's number 8, the tube map:

Brilliant design. Britain produces excellent
hilary lane.
How about number 15, Tower Bridge?

One of the images recognisable all over then world (but perhaps not as often
seen nowadays in the UK as it was when Thames TV was in its heyday!)

Were there really no comments suitable for publishing that didn't contain the words Britain, British or UK?

Austria wants to revive constitution

Source: BBC News

Austria, which has just taken over the EU presidency, wants to revive the EU constitution despite it being rejected by referendum in France and the Netherlands.

A lot of the things contained in the EU constitution have been implemented already since the constitution was rejected making more of a mockery of democracy than the EU already does.

The Vice-Chancellor of Austria said "We need to go back to the start, we need to newly regulate the powers," and "We need less regulation from Brussels and more powers to the Europe of the regions."

Sorry to disappoint you Herr Gorbach but we've had a referendum on regions and they were rejected by such a landslide that the British government had to put the plans on hold. The referendum on the EU constitution was cancelled because, despite massive propoganda efforts by the British government and the EU, the public were still dead against it.

You can take your regions and your EU constitution and shove them auf ihren arsch.

Nominate English icons

The relaunch of the icons website is nothing but a con.

The website is back with a makeover and all the English icons people voted for up until last week removed in favour of the mostly British icons the British government approve of.

All is not lost, however, as you can still nominate new icons so lets get St George back to the top of the list.

English Icons

The icons website is being relaunched tomorrow by its owner, the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The icons website has been asking for nominations and votes for English icons for months now and as of last week, St George was at number three with 78% of visitors voting for St George as a genuine English icon.

So why, when the DCMS is using the website as part of a campaign to promote English icons to help us understand how icons shape understanding of personal and national identity, has it decided to omit St George but include other things that aren't even English?

One word - Britification.

Twat of the Year: Results

As promised, the much fairly hardly anticipated results of the Twat of the Year award.

2005 saw many deserving winners of the Twat of the Week award with the fat turd Prescott ending the year as top of the twats.

A reminder of the Twat of the Year candidates again ...

John "Fat Turd" Prescott
Traitor Blair
David "Tory Blair" Cameron
David Davis (Barnett Formula is pretty sacrosanct)
AA Gill (Why I hate the English)
Oliver Letwin

Now this was tricky because I received the same number of votes for the Prescott, Cameron and Gill. Because it was such a difficult decision I decided to consult Mrs Sane ...

Me: "If you had Prescott, Cameron and Gill lined up against a wall and one bullet, which one would get it?"
Mrs: "I'd line them all up facing me and shoot them."
Me: "Good answer."

However, there has to be one winner and that person is ...

... scroll down some more ...

... keep going, it's worth it (probably) ...

... here it is ...

AA Gill

AA Gill is the miserable, snivelling little tosspot who wrote an article in the Times telling us why he hates the English and more recently a book entitled "Hunting the English" in which he describes us as a cancer. He can't slag the English off enough when he's pretending to be Scottish even though he only lived in Scotland for less than a year as a new born baby.

He's a manky little turd who I wouldn't piss on if he was on fire and a thoroughly deserving winner of the Twat of the Year award.

The old soak resigns

The ginger minger, Charles Kennedy, has resigned his leadership of the Liberal Democrats.

He resigned today citing the drinking problems that made him a drunken failure but said he wishes to remain in politics.

Simon Hughes hasn't ruled himself out of the upcoming leadership contest. This is good news as Simon Hughes is one of the few prominent Liberal Democrats to openly support an English Parliament.

He'd get my vote - how about yours?

Letters: Shropshire Star (replies)

Interest in leaders flagging

Stuart Parr might like to refer to the Shropshire Star archives for July and August 2001.

From February 2001 until December 2003, Telford and Wrekin folk struggled to get the EU flag that dominated civic offices, replaced by the Union flag.

During those years, the council was a virtual thrall-dom, led by a determined pro-European who held his all-powerful Labour group spellbound.

He was eventually forced to accept the compromise that exists today and was toppled from power soon afterwards.

John Prescott has now awarded the EU logo the same status as our own national symbol.
I know which one I would prefer to see flown - and I wager his days in power are numbered too!

Robert Jenklns

Battle for flying flag

I would like to thank Stuart Parr for acknowledging my letter about Hadley & 'Leegomery Parish Council 'flying the flag.

His theory about the Labour Party and flag-flying is probably correct. When the motion to erect the flag pole was put to the parish council, all the Labour members present either abstained or voted against.

I think the reason that the Union Flag now flies at the Telford & Wrekin borough offices is through public pressure.

Twat of the Year: results tomorrow

Yes, I know I said I'd do it today but it's just too tough a decision and I need to collect my thoughts.

I promise (proper promise, not a politician promise) that I will do it tomorrow.

Anyone would think he was unpopular ...

To read this, you'd think that drunken failure Charles Kennedy wasn't popular.

That's because he isn't. He's a smelly, sweaty, alcoholic, anglophobic twat. Good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

Let's hope the Lib Dems can cast off their reputation as the spare dick at a Jewish wedding and get a good quality English leader who'll abandon the pro-EU, pro-English region agenda that has failed the party for so long and provide some realistic opposition to the equally anglophobic Tories and Labour Party.

Spy in the Sky

The Fat Turd, John Prescott, has told Council Tax valuers that they can use "spy in the sky" satellites to spy on peoples' homes to help them put up council tax bills.

The European Convention on Human Rights, of course, guarantees our right to privacy. I wonder if that extends to protecting us from agents of the state using spy satellites to photograph us in our back gardens?

Scottish Naziism Does Exist

Thanks to Scaffold at for the picture.

Best blonde joke ever!

Lib Dem Leadership Vote

Lib Dem leader, Charles Kennedy, has called a leadership contest after increasing numbers of calls for him to resign.

So far nobody has stepped up to oppose him. Presumably they are struggling to find a suitable Scottish or Welsh candidate to stand against him. The thought that they might end up with an English leader must be petrifying.

The grammar school is dead, long live the grammar school

Labour's war on (mainly English) grammar schools is all but won but they can't help themselves tinkering with education in the hope that they will ultimately produce an entire generation of poorly-educated, under-achieving English clones.

One of the main objections they had as a socialist (stop sniggering) party is that grammar schools were a remenant of the class system and selecting children based on ability and/or wealth goes against the grain of the "one size fits all" philosophy that has blighted education since the Scottish Raj took power.

Strange then that they should now be battling both public opinion and possibly up to 100 Labour MP's to try and introduce school trusts which are basically grammar schools with a different name.

The school trusts will control the whole of their own budget (like grammar schools), have more freedom with the curriculum (like grammar schools) and be able to choose which children they admit (like grammar schools).

The idea isn't that far removed from grant maintained schools which receive a grant from the local authority and spend it how they see fit. They also have some control over which pupils they take in.

There is a grant maintained school in Shrewsbury and a friend of mine used to work there as an IT technician. They had the best of everything and some of the best results in the area. They also took pupils from Telford which is a unitary authority and has nothing to do with Shropshire County Council which is the local authority for Shrewsbury.

The reaon why they took pupils from Telford is because several large companies (Epson, Samsung, Mitac, etc.) have offices in Telford and the parents of these children were managers and donated lots of IT equipment and money to the school and despite the protestations of Traitor Blair and Ruth Kelly, selection will take place in these new school trusts and kids whose parents can't afford to buy them a place at the top schools will lose out.

Remember, with up to 100 Labour MP's prepared to rebel on the bill, the Scottish Raj will have to rely on whipped Scottish Labour MP's to pass the bill which only affects England.

Twat of the Year: update

A quick update on the Twat of the Year nominations.

It's still not too late to nominate new, deserving individuals or to register your vote for a particular candidate. I will announce the winner some time tomorrow afternoon, time permitting.

John "Fat Turd" Prescott - a predictably popular choice and the highest ranking twat according to the Twat of the Week awards.
Traitor Blair - another popular choice of course, our glorious leader.
David "Tory Blair" Cameron - a surprisingly popular choice giving the favourites (see above) a run for their money.
David Davis (Barnett Formula is pretty sacrosanct) - only one vote for DD ... sounds familiar.
AA Gill (Why I hate the English) - whether he wins or not, he is undoubtably a twat of the highest order.
Oliver Letwin - why does he remind me of Harry Enfield's "Tim Nice But Dim" character?

Letter: Shropshire Star

Obsession bypassing our views on merger

Charles Clarke, in a breathtaking display of arrogance and contempt, has vowed to press ahead with merging police forces.

The Home Secretary baa informed police chiefs that he has the power to force through the mergers whether they or the public agree or not.

He has even attempted to entice police forces into complying by offering extra cash if they submitted merger proposals by the deadline.

Not one single force made the deadline and so far few have agreed to a merger.

The Government is obsessed with making things bigger, moving power and decision-making further away from the people.

Everything is about regions - regional fire service, regional ambulance service and now regional police forces.

Not just any regions will do, though. They have to fit in with the regional map of Britain. The regional map of Britain, as per a directive from Brussels, consists of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and nine regions of England.

Each of the nine English regions has a Regional Assembly (RA) which formulates policy and does John Prescott's bidding.

Those who sit on the RA council are appointed by the local authorities in that region - there is no public consultation.

The proposed West Midlands Super force will fit neatlvinto the boundaries of the West Midlands Regional Assembly (aka Advantage West Midlands).

How long will it be until all decisions and services in Shropshire are administered by unelected officials?

Customs rip-off

My wife makes cards and can't find some packs of stickers she likes. So, today, she hunted down suppliers of the stickers and managed to track down the South Korean manufacturer of the stickers who is happy to sell them to her.

The price she could get them for was pretty good, even with some fairly expensive shipping costs. All that remained to work out was the duty to be paid on them when they got here to see if it was worth buying them or not.

I had a look on DHL's website to see what the costs would be and I was amazed at how much tax they charge on stuff entering the country. First of all there is duty which is charged at between 5 and 9% and then VAT at 17.5%. This isn't just charged on the value of the goods though, the duty is charged on the value of the goods and the shipping costs and the VAT is charged on the value of the goods, the shipping costs and the duty.

What I found really surprising, although I don't know why, is that the EU determines what rate of duty HM Customs and Excise charge on goods entering this country and not the British government.

AA Gill again

AA Gill, the irredeemably offensive cretin that writes for the Times, has struck again.

Obviously spurred on by the reaction to his highly offensive and racist article explaining why he hates the English, the pretend Scot has now released a book entitled "Hunting the English".

In the book he talks about his good fortune to spend two weeks north of the border which made him better placed to expose the venereal cancer at the heart of the English. He mocks the apparent English tendency to hold a bold assertion of the past rather than something that stands the test of time. This is something that is at the heart of the Scottish identity but he mysteriously fails to mention this. Given the opportunity, most Scots will happily tell you how they defeated the evil English at some battle in the 17th century and completely miss the point that they have achieved absolutely nothing of any importance or interest since. Instead, they will go on hating the English, whom they blame for their own incompetence.

He says that the English like queues, losing at sport and nostalgia. He doesn't mention the Scottish knack of losing to the worst sporting teams on the planet at everything except curling and caber tossing. There are quite a lot of prominent tossers in Scotland, AA Gill being one of them.

AA Gill describes himself as a proud Scot despite moving from Scotland to England when he was less than a year old and subsequently spending the rest of his life in England. He is a bitter, twisted, biggoted tosser who should be packed off to his beloved Scotland and never again allowed to set foot in England. He is one of the most offensive, poorly educated cretins ever to have blighted this country and should be treated with the contempt that a traitor such as himself deserves.

Can I just remind you that AA Gill is one of the nominees for Twat of the Year.

Twat of the Year: nominations so far

There is still time to send in your Twat of the Year nominations.

The panel of judges (me) will announce the winner on Friday (assuming I remember to do it). The judges decision is final (so I'm a dictator, shoot me). Any appeals will be heard by the special adjudication and appeals panel (me again) and summarily dismissed.

Nominations so far:

John "Fat Turd" Prescott
Traitor Blair
David "Tory Blair" Cameron
David Davis (Barnett Formula is pretty sacrosanct)

If you have any nominations you can leave a comment or send me a new nomination.

Russia turns off gas to Ukraine

Russia has turned off gas supplies to Ukraine after Ukraine refused to pay massive price increases imposed by Russia since the pro-European government took over the country last year.

The EU imports around 25% of it's gas via Ukraine although none of it comes to the UK.

How long will it be before we start shipping "our fair share" of gas to Europe at cut down prices? If the EU comes begging for gas, I hope Traitor Blair remembers that the UK pays a premium price for gas and oil from the continent.

Chip 'n' Pin

All new credit and debit cards are now chip 'n' pin, apparently to improve security.

Since I started using chip 'n' pin, not one retailer has checked the name on my card.

This is supposed to be more secure? I know the pin on my wife's debit card and could quite easily use it without having to worry that anyone would notice. A pickpocket could watch me use my card somewhere, see what my pin number is (it's impossible to shield the keypad from everyone in a busy shop), steal my card and go and use it. They wouldn't even have to be the same sex as me.

This is supposed to be more secure?
