The MOD must confirm that Lance Corporal Robert Martin Richards from Armoured Support Group Royal Marines died in Selly Oak Hospital on Wednesday 27 May 2009, from wounds sustained in Helmand five days previously
I apologise to friends and family alike for having to put this brave man amongst the dross of British politics.
Sincerest condolences to his family from a former Bootneck.

What a foul-up. This is
First the Vets were being subsidised by the Heroes Return Charity, costs to cover a carer and one immediate family relative. Then a Blackpool Councillor Julian Mineur – sorry folk I ain’t making this up - gets involved and it all turns to doggee poo. The last time I saw Councillor Manure in action was in Rhyl where he was insulting a rather eloquent, distinguished former Women’s Army veteran who promised if that if he called her girlie once more she would smack his face. She was prevented from assaulting him by a former Royal Marine who was only too willing to do the lady’s bidding. The Councillor was trying to sell the Veterans Badge to the veteran and was getting a hostile reception along with the Labour MP for
Not only will some of the vets not be going, but Association heads with no affiliation to D Day, will be. I wonder who is subsidising their sojourn whilst neglecting the true heroes from the 1940’s?
One unnamed veteran is so distraught he was almost at fisty-cuffs with his association official. The veteran was and had been a regular, one of the original commandos, a man distinguished in action all through

I am feeling sentimental. The reason, I have just been in the club and there have been subjected to a loud invective of racialism and political recent history.
I listened to someone who has never been anywhere near
We used to laugh at some of the foreign newspaper reports, especially one’s of the bodies on the Cathedral greens in Salisbury, all blacks and all very dead. When closely inspected they were all found to be very black but ALL very drunk.
In my mess the senior sergeant was a black. He was murdered by Robert Mugabe and the British did nothing. His people were the only tribe ever to defeat the Zulu in battle. They were the murdered Ndebele, a geniocide ignored. No war crimes here.
Gravy train arrives again in Blackpool as Education bosses jet to USA for conference.
Coun Don Clapham, cabinet member for children's services went on the five-day Seattle trip with director of children's services David Lund, and BSF director Robert Brophy, said it had been so useful town hall officials would return to America later this year. Not if the electorate can help it.
Where have all the benefit fraud cudgelled adverts gone from our TV screens, Mr Parnell? Is it not coincidental that the exact same CRIMES that our political leaders are accusing the impoverisher benefit claimant of, is now that which they are being rounded on them? Yet only this morning – channel 5Live - Lord Mandelson accused the interviewer of being harsh because she stated… “the similarity of the over indulgent MP is equivalent to that of a Tesco till worker helping themselves to the bread on the counter?” Mandelson’s responses was as pathetic as it was unrepeatable though it is what one would expect of a former MP who billed the taxpayer for almost £3,000 of work on his constituency home in Hartlepool less than a week after announcing his decision to stand down as an MP – defend that Mr Brown.

We live in a country where your vote has been devalued because of a myriad of reasons. The worst possible situation is for you to allow the centuries of endeavour to be wasted because of your disinterest, your disgust at politicians, your apathy or your bigotry.
The world over, poor people would give their all to be able to put a cross on a piece of paper. You do not have the right not to vote. Even if you want to spoil your paper, that is your right. If you are like me and dislike the whole pot pouri of intrigue and immorality, I will find somewhere to put my cross, even if it right across the paper as a gesture of my discontent with those who want to stand in my name.
Please, get out on the 4th of June and put your ballot paper in that secret slot. Just think before you do it.
Just remember who has led us into the worst recession in living memory, who tried to hide from you the facts around politicians’ greed and hypocrisy. Just remember that all the parties have promised the World and delivered Hell. It is now your time to tell the Parties precisely what you think. Don’t allow the parasites in
"Do you see those slums at the back of the Eiffel Tower, Mon Cherie?"
"Is that where they make Lancashire Hot Pot?"
"No, you silly cow. It's where English girls are lured into vice...it the Hot Spot. It's Sh'ite."
"Is not that London?"
"No. That really is shite."
The debacle with so-called expenses and allowances just indicates that all those found out are incapable of any form of respect, any classification of knowledge, any moral integrity.
Not only should the likes of Hain be put before a jury, all those who publicly endorse their criminal actions should be barred from all public office.
The role of the local selection committee has been proven to be bankrupt. The era of secret cabals should once and for all be swept into the gutter along with every public servant who claims false accounts whilst poverty struck single mothers are criminalised for not declaring a couple of quid they get for a few hours work in their local chippie.

And I heard this creep running down the BNP and its supporters. My friend, a former BNP candidate in Wigan, has just welcomed his nephew back from Afghanistan, to Selly Oak hospital. That is the difference between true Englishmen and those who want to ruin us.

A few days ago I said that in my opinion Gordon Marsden should go and was immediately turned on by an anonymous supporter. I published the articles but now I will expand on my thinking and reiterate that, in my opinion, Marsden has failed the electorate of Blackpool South.
It has been twelve years since the Labour brigade slipped this professional politician under the toilet door and into
With the changing demographics, the public apathy, the frustration of generation after generation of political figurehead achieving absolutely nothing for a declining super town, it was with little wonder that the surge in immigrants with their socialist heritage brought with it this fresh faced figure to suit all needs (sic). In those heady days of New Labour the voters were lured into the fantasy of a new political era under that gleaming new god, Tony Blair and the hubris of an untested deity. History is a great teacher and we now all know what a conniving rogue this messiah turned out to be.
You would have expected that a new philosophy would have brought with it a vibrant new start. Twelve years on and we are reaping the wind of dogma, blind obedience, greed and indifference. Marsden is guilty through inaction. Apart from homosexual matters there is little in his resume to attract his to the ordinary voter – and I have chosen my words very carefully. I don’t demand a popularist. There are many aspects of Frank Fields’ politics I detest immensely, but he has attributes of courage and forthrighteousness that put him beyond the labour apologists. Oh to have an MP, someone with an ounce of his integrity and bottle.
The first and most important task of the MP is to hold the Executive to account; that is the sovereign duty of Parliament and the single most important role of each and every MP irrespective of party. Has Gordon Marsden done this – NO! His voting record is on view and accessible (http://www.theyworkforyou.com/); it is also lamentable and insulting to three quarters of the
As labour has slipped through thousands of legislative acts, regulations and amendments, they, those words that dictate our every actions, have had so little scrutiny it is little wonder that our Laws are in a mess. I will not go into the depths of Labour legal mismanagement – nor Marsdens’ contribution, as feeble as it has been, except for the highlight the latest piece of political tomfoolery that is being mercifully delayed by the Lords, the Coroners and Justice Bill. This legislation is being shunted through parliament even though it is ill-conceived and poorly scrutinised. That recent lesson that ought to have been taught by the untimely death of Andy Miller, the Sandgrownun who moved to
It is not right for the Labour defenders to squawk that their favourite puppy is a ‘saint’ by not having dipped as deep into the trough as say Hazel Blears or the Right Honourable Lord Peter Mandelson, but if you throw the swill in they all feed. It is no defence to say my MP is a runt so doesn’t get as much as the fat pigs near the bucket, to feed out of it at all makes you culpable. To listen to that apologist for Labour Ben Bradshaw on Question Time and the despicable whining clowns of the Conservative Party ought to make everyone sick. Even the usual lucid and articulate William Haig got caught in the
Yet there are beacons in the middin. Kate Hoey and John Mann must be exceptionally brave individuals, but there numbers are so few. I did not see or hear Gordon Marsden joining their ranks as they called for clarity, honesty and a rebirth of integrity in Parliament. The deafening silence from Gordon Marsden condemns him along with all those who have treated the electorate with such disdain.
I have written to Dr Richard Taylor and asked his to put himself forward as the new speaker of the house, a distinguished and honourable individual with the character to do more good outside his Wyre Forest constituency.
There has never been, in my sixty plus years, to a free, open and public debate in
A simple question for Gordon; how can an electorate trust a Parliament that has treated the electorate with utter disregard and feathered their own nest while the country has sunk to the worst depression in living memory?
Labour got us into the KaaKaa, that is fact. No more Boom and Bust heralded the Prime Minister. How true that is!
There was a conspiracy of silence perpetrated from
Thank Heaven for the internet and – while it lasts- true freedom of speech.

In the week since Aung San Suu Kyi was first detained the Burma Campaign UK has:
· Briefed journalists about the situation and helped many journalists get into Burma to report what is going on.
· Coordinated a global day of action with demonstrations in more than 20 cities.
· Been in regular contact with governments urging them to take action.
· Organised an email action campaign to the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and which has generated more than 14,000 emails. Under increasing pressure, ASEAN has now put out a statement expressing concern.
Our task now is to turn words into action. We need to continue lobbying governments and Parliaments. We need to mobilise support from the public and celebrities. Most of all we need to build pressure for the United Nations Security Council to take concrete action. The Security Council is the only body in the world with the legal authority to force the dictatorship to release Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners.
But campaigning costs money, and we need your support. Please support us at this critical moment. You can donate via our website from any country in the world. http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/donate.html.
We will never stop campaigning until Aung San Suu Kyi and all the people of Burma are free. Please help us bring that day closer. Donate now: http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/donate.html.
