“Bubonic Plague is spread by bites from infected rat fleas. Symptoms include boils in the groin, neck and armpits. In Pneumonic Plague, airborn bacteria spread like flu.”

“The al-Qaeda epidemic began in the cave hideouts of AQLIM in Tizi Ouzou province, 150km east of the capital Algiers. The group, led by wanted terror boss Abdelmalek Droudkal, was forced to turn its shelters in the Yakouren forest into mass graves and flee.”

another day, another dishonest gimmick from the clown

“An emergency £500 million plan to help the long-term unemployed back into work will be outlined today as employers, trade unions and ministers try to soften the impact of the growing jobs crisis.

“People unemployed for more than six months will be guaranteed more intensive and personalised support to find work as the Government strives to prevent the now inevitable surge in unemployment becoming permanent. Gordon Brown and other ministers will announce "golden hellos" worth up to £2,500 for employers to recruit and train the long-term unemployed; 75,000 training places for people out of work for six months; and cash help for jobless people to set up businesses.”

So, people being laid off by the cartload. So, the crazy Clown offers to steal more tax to bribe employees to take on the most unreliable candidates - the long-term ‘unemployed’.

As if there won’t be enough applications for any jobs going. As if any sane employer will take on the long-term ‘unemployed’ for a bribe of up to £2500, unless they can see some way of scamming it for profit.

How many of these long-term ‘unemployed’ do you believe will be taken on in genuine jobs? How many do you think will still be in ‘employment’ six months later?

Extra tax puts even more strain on businesses. Genuine job-seekers now compete with bribe holders. The likelihood of it producing real employment is just about zero.

Yet another cunning plan from the ‘new’ Labour Clown.
Yet another plan to get cheap headlines from the leftist fossil media.
Yet another meaningless ‘new’ Labour gesture

hamas terrorism - gradually reality penetrates

media colludes with hamas to endorse their crimes

“The Hamas War is now beginning to look like a ritual Kabuki play. We know all the moves -- all we can do is watch how well the actors play out their well-worn moves.

“Except that this is not a play, and real lives are being lost.

“The key is not the terrorists. They are stuck in their ways. The real key is the international media --- who are hardly neutral observers as they like to pretend. The international leftist media are essential players in this melodrama.

“In fact, it is the media themselves who are criminally complicit in the internment of Gaza's civilians in the line of fire. They could stop the terrorists simply by headlining Hamas' responsibility for the plight of the Arabs of Gaza, over and over again. That's the real story --- if only they could headline the facts right in front of their eyes. But they don't.

“That shows us the real values of CNN and BBC; morally they are no better than the terrorists. The media are essential to the Kabuki play of terror, response, and renewed terror. They are constantly fanning the flames.”

“ The media-terrorist collusion is completely symbiotic -- they are both essential for the drama to work. Separate the terrorists from the media, and you have heat without oxygen -- no explosion.”

no, we are not “all hamas now”

“Of course, none of these arguments can penetrate the brains of the superannuated Stalinists, vicarious jihadists and attention-seeking actors and pop stars who think it’s cool to go on marches chanting, “We are all Hamas now”. Even if these luvvies might not be aware that on Christmas Eve Hamas legalised crucifixion as a punishment for those who “weaken the spirit of the people”, and have been shooting such political enemies in the head when they find them in hospitals conveniently injured by Israeli bombing raids, they still deserve to be dismissed as useful idiots for a depraved death cult.”

hamas, israel, what does disproportionate response mean?

“The most succinct summary of the Mid East I have seen: If the Arabs laid down their weapons, there would be no more violence. If the Jews laid down their weapons, there would be no more Israel.” ” [Quoted from]

There is continual rhetoric suggesting that Israel’s response to steady missile attacks from Hamas jihadis is ‘disproportionate’. This is typical dishonest propoganda rhetoric, and becomes more meaningless the more it is examined.

A more sane interpretation of the word ‘proportionate’ would be “sufficient force to achieve the objective of stopping eight years of regular and constant attacks from Gaza”, thus achieving the same result as the previous proportionate attack on the Hizbollah jihadis in Lebanon.

Some semi-satyrical responses to this concept of disportionality

“UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay “strongly condemned Israel’s disproportionate use of force.” The Israeli counterattack is, indeed, disproportionate, but it could hardly be otherwise. “At last count,” J.G. Thayer wrote, “one Israeli and two Palestinians (sisters, ages 13 and 5) died from rocket attacks. So a proportionate response, one presumes, would have required Israel to kill a single Palestinian and two of its own citizens.”

“There were, I suppose, other “proportionate” responses available aside from killing one Palestinian and two Israelis. The Israel Defense Forces might have launched thousands of air strikes against targets in Gaza to match the thousands of Qassam rockets fired at the cities of Sderot and Ashkelon. It’s unlikely, however, that this is what Israel’s critics have in mind.

“So what do they have in mind? What would a legitimate and “proportionate” response actually look like? Surely they don’t believe Israel should scrap its sophisticated weapons systems, build Qassam rockets, and launch those at Gaza instead.”

“If someone was sending rockets on my house where my daughters were sleeping at night, I would do everything to stop it, and I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.” – President-elect Barack Obama

“... Hitler made efforts to conceal the purpose of the death camps and distanced himself from them, avoided written as opposed to oral orders for the Final Solution. Not because he felt any shame about them, but because he felt knowledge of the death camps might be counter-productive to the Nazis political goals. Hamas makes no effort to conceal the fact that it wants to kill Jewish civilians, not just combatants, but women and children–all Jews (it’s in the charter, remember)—because Hamas feels this will make them more popular.” [Quoted from]

For the attention of Banki Moon:

It is proposed that a truly ‘proportionate’ response to Ham-ass be developed.

Proportionate is a mathematical term. Thus, it is legitimate for Israel to hit Gaza at a proportion of n:1.

Thus, Israel could use 10:1 or even 100:1, but being sporting and civilised, I suggest that a ratio of 2:1 would be a good place to start.

Thus for every rocket that observers registered arriving from Gaza on a Monday, Israel should send back two on Tuesday. The number counted on Tuesday would be returned in that same proportion on the Wednesday, and so on.

Israel could always reserve the right to increase the proportionate response at the end of each month, if the number of missiles arriving from Gaza did not sink to zero in that month. For ‘month’ can be substituted ‘week’, or ‘17 days’, or whatever, according to negotiations with Ham-ass and other loons.

the clown’s prison culture

Brown the Clown is doing everything possible to reduce the population to clients of his socialist state.

Just to make sure, he has introduced over 1000 imprisonable ‘offences’. The usual socialist centralisation of power carried out by threat and cultivation of dependence in the population.

Government is the problem, not the solution. The Tories will have a long job forcing responsibility back where it belongs - on individuals, households and the community.

“We know there has been a tidal wave of legislation, but it is mind-boggling to discover the size of the tsunami. It is estimated that more than 3,600 new offences have been created. But even more astonishing, as Baroness Stern, a crossbench peer, discovered when she asked, is the number of these that can result in a prison sentence. Believe it or not, there are 1,036 that the official could identify. There may well be more.

“It is now an imprisonable offence to allow an unlicensed concert to take place in a church hall. You can go to prison if your child fails to attend school, or if you smoke in a public place, or if you fail to obtain a passport for your pet donkey or if you are a child caught in possession of a firework at any time other than on or around November 5 or New Year's Day. No doubt, children letting off fireworks are behaving in an anti-social way; but no reasonable person regards this as meriting imprisonment.”

‘New’ Labour had ‘promised’ a ‘constitution’. What they produced was a restriction of civil rights across the board.

When the EUSSR speaks of ‘constitution’, they refer to the fake Treaty of Lisbon which is just the reverse of a genuine constitution. Both socialist constructions are empowerments of government, centralised government.

Likewise, socialist ‘New’ Labour ‘promised’ a freedom of information act, and introduced a curbing of information act.

Be very careful of the socialist corruption of language. It is central to their general corruption.

A real constitution puts severe limits on governments.

The USA has a real constitution. You will never get a real constitution from dogmas like socialism.

Dogmas seek to narrow down human freedom, not to expand it.

naughty people playing withbig matches

More of those ‘innocent’ ‘civilians’ being murdered by Israel.

Silly boys shouldn’t play with matches.
Come in no.5, your time is up.
When Allah puts your name on the card, truly it is written!

Videos from the Israeli Defence Force show what is really happening when the IDF defends against current Hamas aggressions.
