Hero worship in Blackpool

Hero. I for one am sick to death of the wanton misuse of this noun. There are recent usages which are apt, but others that are sadly inappropriate. The Evening Gazette seem to be fixated with one member of the Blackpool Council, naming every former soldier with a gong this mythical legend. Chambers Dictionary explains this noun as a man of distinguished bravery: a person reverenced and idealized.
Perhaps the Gazette should check Major Jim Houldsworth's Royal Marines history of active service? Hero status definitely is not seen therein. That aside, anyone who can disorganise the parade for the people on or near the 11th of November with such ineptitude needs some form of recognition. After all, how difficult must it be to look at a watch and determine that when the big finger is on twelve and the little finger is on eleven, then everything stops for two whole minutes of reflection?

It is rumoured that the Ex Service Liaison Committee have commissioned a showing of Riverdance instead of standards and veterans, along with the Mashona Baptist Choir to chant the Matabele massacre song. For those who do not know, 11th of November is Remembrance Day, a day when a whole nation remembers the 20 million victims of one conflict, and the 40 million plus of a second world conflagration, and the thousands of soldiers who have died, been injured or have served, before, during and since.
It is also Rhodesian Independence Day.
For the record, more Rhodesian than ANY other nationality - in relation to size of populations - rallied to the bugle when Hitler frightened the cowards into their middens.

Why no criminal inquiry?

Conway may still face police probe

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said they were not "ignoring the situation" as one of his senior officers asked a sleaze watchdog if they wanted the force to look into the case.

The decision not to call in the police was announced by Sir George Young when he told MPs that Mr Conway would be suspended from the Commons for 10 days and forced to repay the money. Sir George chairs the Commons Standards and Privileges Committee to which Mr Lyon reports.

"There is a protocol. The protocol was agreed with the previous Parliamentary Standards Commissioner," he told a meeting of the Metropolitan Police Authority. "It doesn't appear from the face of it that that protocol was fully followed in this particular case and what we have done is to write to the Standards Commissioner and ask him whether he is going to refer the matter to the MPS, and if he isn't what are his reasons and we await that answer."

Anyone, it seems, who trespass fraudulently with tax Payers money,will be prosecuted, unless you are an MP. Derek Conway will escape any sanction at all unless the public make their derision known.
Your MP is available through the media of the Internet so why not tell him/her how you feel?

The Times –letter of the year 2008

A SENIOR MOMENT - (I PRAY TO GOD THAT I HAVE THEM LIKE THIS......) An elderly lady actually wrote this letter to her bank. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in The Times and this newspaper thanks him most sincerely.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my Pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account £30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.

I noticed that whereas I personally attend to your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, re-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become. From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person. My mortgage and loan payments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank by cheque, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an offence under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope.

Please find attached an Application Contact Status which I require your chosen employee to complete. I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative. Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Solicitor, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.

In due course, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me. I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modelled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further. When you call me, press buttons as follows:

1-- To make an appointment to see me
2-- To query a missing payment.
3-- To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.
4-- To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.
5-- To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature
6-- To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.
7-- To leave a message on my computer (a password to access my computer is required. A password will be communicated to you at a later date to the Authorized Contact.)
8-- To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 8
9-- To make a general complaint or inquiry, the contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.
While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous, New Year.

Your Humble Client

IMPORTANT to REMEMBER that this letter was written by a lady who is a 98 year old woman; DOESN'T SHE MAKE YOU PROUD!!!?

Would that all could have the skill to reply to Councils, banks, public services with such eloquence. The shame is that those receiving such correspondence would not understand a word of it

Corporal Damian Mulvihill. Opens in a new window.

'Dee' was a giant of a man who impressed all who met him. Ever cheerful, he would never allow problems to get him down. He always had a friendly word for anyone he met and his fantastic personality filled any room he walked into. He was an excellent listener and would always make time for others.

"He was a larger-than-life individual, with a personality to match, and his fellow marines took great comfort from his mere presence. As a friend he was loyal and trusted, as a comrade he was admired and emulated; a man of considerable ability, he will be sadly missed. Corporal Mulvihill has been cruelly taken from us in the prime of life but he shall not be forgotten. Our thoughts and most sincere condolences go out to his family and fiancée Lisa at this most difficult and sad time."

Clamour grows to reveal the secret report that throws light on EU 'fraud'

Pressure was growing last night on the European Parliament to publish a secret
report into the misuse of MEPs’ expenses, which whistleblowers claim shows
widespread abuse of taxpayers’ money.

There was disbelief among the few MEPs who have been allowed to see the
internal audit after officials at the Parliament said that they had not
called in EU anti-fraud investigators because they did not think that it
showed fraud.

The Times understands that the audit of 167 MEPs’ staff expenses found seven
who had set up companies to pay staff who did not seem to exist and others
employing unqualified family members or paying the whole allowance of
€15,496 (£11,710) a month to one person. In addition more than 20 appeared
to have paid excessive Christmas bonuses, which the auditor felt were hard
to justify.

Killed in Action

Royal Marine killed in Afghanistan on 20 February

20 Feb 08

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a Marine from 40 Commando Royal Marines was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan today, 20 February 2008, during Operation Mar Taqeeb (Serpent Pursuit).

The Marines, from the 40 Commando Royal Marines Battlegroup, were taking part in an outreach patrol in Viking vehicles to disrupt enemy forces north of Sangin in the southern Afghan Province of Helmand when they were involved in the explosion.

The Marine was pronounced dead at the scene before he and the injured Marine were evacuated to the ISAF medical facilities at Camp Bastion, where the injured marine received treatment for a minor injury.

The next of kin of all Service personnel involved in the incident have been informed and have requested a period of grace before further details are released.

Governments double standards.

Bloody Sunday inquiry costs £181m

The only people who are getting anything out of this inquiry are the lawyers. When the families of those killed have a result they have already said that they are returning to Courts for COMPENSATION.
How do the families of the thousands murdered by the IRA get compensation.
And for our politicians, especially the odious Dewsbury apologist, himself an immigrant, their deaths are not an irrelevance.
For those of us who held the ground between the two factions, it is as relevant today as it was that day back in1969 when 41 Commando arrived in Belfast.
With Kosovo on the brink, has anyone had the courage to ask -what happens when Bradford declares independence?
Will the highly undermanned armed forces be forced into calling us veteran up?
There is always this talk of closure. When our Government treats it own people with such contempt, how can the families of those killed in illegal conflicts find closure?

This is why they do not let you within half a mile of Parliament

Twenty-four MPs with seats in Greater London claimed almost £400,000 of public
money to fund second homes last year.

Two Labour MPs with neighbouring constituencies in west London, Alan and Ann
Keen, a junior health minister, have claimed more than £175,000 in
allowances since 2002 even though their family home in her constituency is
less than 10 miles from parliament.

Andrew Rosindell, Tory MP for Romford in Essex, claimed £22,110 last year even
though the train from Romford to Liverpool Street takes less than 30
minutes. Rosindell, who was also unavailable for comment, bought a flat in
Southwark, across the Thames from Westminster, for £325,000 in 2002.

Broons Justice -shackle heroes!

Why our dad won't back down, by family of the 76-year-old council tax rebel shackled and humiliated by the courts

Eight hours in a holding cell, an hour and a half handcuffed to a guard in a security van and a lengthy wait in a police station custody unit for a prison space.

Then, at 9.30pm, Richard Fitzmaurice, a 76-year-old Army veteran of the Suez Crisis, was allowed one phone call to his family.

Bedraggled and bewildered, he told his son: "I'm okay. Don't worry about me."

His crime, as the Mail revealed yesterday, was non-payment of council tax.

For that, Mr Fitzmaurice, who has seen the bill on his Band D property soar hugely over the years, could spend the next 34 days behind bars.

His family say they do not plan to pay the outstanding £1,359 (plus £209 costs).

Armed Forces employ 7,000 foreigners

Britain's growing "foreign legion" - equal to almost a dozen Army regiments - has led to renewed warnings that the Forces are struggling to retain and recruit British citizens to their ranks. The figures emerged as the House of Commons defence committee launched an inquiry into recruitment and retention in the Armed Forces and they follow growing criticism of the Government's alleged under-resourcing of the military.

Earlier this month, The Daily Telegraph disclosed that one in 14 soldiers is unfit to fight as a result of being sick or injured - almost 7,000 infantrymen.

Blackpool debate on Veterans

We don't want the veterans. Blackpool's continual "wars glorification" marches should not be promoted and honoured by the Ministry of Defence granting Blackpool's hosting of national veterans week vents.I'm not the only one disagreeing as other Blackpool residents and businesses are fed up to the back teeth of top heavy spring and summer weekly parades along town centre main streets of pompous ex-service clones and self-styled war heroes strutting in manic remembrance of good times war adventure.They behave like overgrown boy scouts.Robert McDougall Blackpool

I was absolutely dumbstruck to read Robert McDougall's comments. I have to declare that I am a former Royal Marine but up until five years ago, when I became a co-founder of the Blackpool branch of the Royal Marines Association, my only involvement was an annual visit to the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.
Having become involved with an ex service association, I can tell Mr McDougall that it is not about self-glorification or self-styled war heroes. It is actually about comradeship, remembering those with whom we served who are no longer here and ongoing support for those who daily put their lives on the line for this country. Sadly we learn little from history and atrocities still carry on to this day but it is fair to say that in many instances it has been Britain's intervention that has halted mass slaughter. We should remember the words of Burke; "All that is required for evil to flourish is that good men do nothing. "The absolute irony is that we enjoy freedom of speech and live in a democracy that was fought and paid for (at a very high price) by the very men and women that Mr McDougall berates. I should like to think Mr McDougall's misguided statement is based on a lack of knowledge and would like to invite him to one of our branch meetings to see first hand the calibre of those he so readily castigates. Perhaps I could ask Mr McDougall to reflect on the words of General MacArthur who said: "The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war."
COUN RON BELL Conservative Parliamentary Candidate Blackpool South

The first letter from Robert McDougal opens the debate. In many ways it is the legacy of inaction and inertia shown by former servicemen that has brought this situation about. Most former servicemen want nothing to do with service remembrance or organisations - I make no apologies for not being politically correct and stating the Females are in the services because it is taken as fact that when it is said men, this automatically includes the women - and that the great number of former servicemen want little or nothing to do with past experiences.
The media has been found wanting. The Blackpool paper, the Gazette has printed a series of articles about the Royal Marines, it's personnel and its esprit de corp which has been totally incorrect. Small things like the marines being one of the finest Regiments in the British Army. Totally untrue. The Marines are an integral part of the Royal Navy.
Maj Jim Houldsworth Royal Marines! A local hero. I will say nothing more than untrue.
The recent Commando documentary on TV where it showed recruits doing the thirty miler. For those who qualified for the Green Beret before PC and Health and Safety, the programme was a disaster. Now I see bandsmen wearing the beret, sons of bandsmen, cadets and cadet instructors. There were no health checks on the run, only instructors with map references and emergency services a discreet distance from those being TESTED. You were discharge blind from a vehicle, given a map reference and left to your own devices. If you passed you were in, if not you failed and was out. I don't say this lightly, but I saw lads with broken feet crawl rather than fail, not a health check every half hour and a food supplement for the weary as shown in the programme.
I will leave the Dinger Bell letter for later. It has been a source of wonderful amusement amongst some former Royal Marines, those silenced and ignored, and those who will not go within a thousand miles of the Blackpool RMA . Highlighted within his letter are statements that have a strong stench of hypocracy about them, and certainly need clarification. I make these quick observations.
If British involvement has done so much good, why were thirty thousand Matabele/Ndebele (30,000) allowed to be massacred under the stewardship of the British - Zimbabwe 1982 -85?
Who is it that has prevented veterans from wearing their Pingat Jasa Malaysia medals?
Who has been selling the Veterans Badge as a worthy substitute for true recognition of a debt that has never been honoured?
And if you are indignant at the freely written words of an obvious bigot, then how indignant must former Royal Marines feel when Secretary Bell ignored their demands to see minutes of meeting in which Dingaling sat as secretary? If that duty was too exhausting for him recently, it raises the question of how effective he will function when dealing with the intimate details of 50,000plus constituents. Many X servicemen feel badly let down with the incumbent MP because there is no common ground - they are not homosexual and have been much closer than two hundred yards to a terrorist bomb than the MP brags about. (Is it true that it is only the British who have not derogated against homosexuality in their Armed Forces?)

Wendy and the unanswered questions.

"I welcome the Electoral Commission’s announcement today, clearing me of intentional wrongdoing. My honesty and integrity have been confirmed by this judgment."
My word, on a day when the Arch Bishop of Canterbury has manage to violate history, Wendy Alexander is reinturpreting English. The Commission has not exonerated this woman.

In fact, it has passed a ruling that make no sense at all and clears nothing.

Did you not deliberately solicit a string of donations from £999 to £950, just below the reporting threshold? The list of undeclared donations included; GMB Scotland £999, Michael D Rutterford £999, Neil Davidson £995, Nicholas Kuenssberg £995, John Lyons £995, Phoenix Car Company £995, Strathvale Holdings Limited £995, City Refrigeration Holdings Limited £995, David J Pitt Watson £990, Paul Green £950. Do not integrity, trust and honesty have no resonance in your existance.
Scottish Labour deserves you, but not the normal honest people of Scotland.

Scottish Justice Not Served?

Wee Wendy Prosecution "Not in the Public Interest"
The killer line in the Electoral Commission's determination is:
In respect of a possible offence under Section 56, the Commission has concluded that, while Wendy Alexander did not take all reasonable steps in seeking to comply with the relevant legislation, she did take significant steps. Having considered all the circumstances, the Commission has decided that it is not appropriate or in the public interest to report this matter to the Procurator Fiscal."
So if you don't declare £950 of income on your tax return and get caught, try to use this as a defence. "I did declare most of my income, but I forgot about the £950 from the offshore source. It won't be in the public interest to prosecute..."
