British hostages' kidnap

An investigation into the kidnapping of five British men in Iraq has uncovered evidence of possible collusion by Iraqi government officials in their abduction, and a possible motive – to keep secret the whereabouts of billions of dollars in embezzled funds.

Over the past 10 months the Guardian has interviewed senior Iraqi figures and eyewitnesses as well as the former British military officer who investigated the kidnap for the men's employers. Their accounts allege that the hostage takers had contacts in the Iraqi government, and also that officials in the ministry of defence warned off witnesses to the kidnap.

The senior intelligence source said: "Many people don't want a high level of corruption to be revealed. Remember this is the information technology centre [at the ministry of finance], this is the place where all the money to do with Iraq and all Iraq's financial matters are housed."

When Anisa Borsberry confronted a group of playground bullies she hoped it would finally bring an end to her 11-year-old daughter’s ordeal.

The 40-year-old was marched out in handcuffs even though a claim that she had hit one of the bullies had already been withdrawn.

She then had her fingerprints and DNA taken and was thrown into a cell for more than five hours.

Press Complaint Council public apology

For those with a memory, you may recall the furore about the BNP and their maligning of the Gurkha soldiers. Here is the reply from the Press Complaints Council - expedited..

Thank you for your email regarding the article in the Sun headlined “BNP sickos slur hero Gurkha”.

We have now completed our investigation into this matter. The complaint was resolved following the publication of the following correction

We have been asked to make clear by Adam Walker, a British National Party candidate in the recent European elections, that an election leaflet criticising the rights of Gurkhas to stay in the UK and featuring Corporal Kumar Pun, recently killed in action, was not published by Mr Walker or issued by his party as we stated on May 18. (Cl 1)

Mr Walker has accepted this in resolution of his complaint and the file has been closed on that basis.

Yours sincerely

Simon Yip

What is the fascination for a young white woman to have a black man in her bed, let alone in her life?
I retell the tale of a 15 year old boy who was viciously attacked by a gang on Blackpool promenade. He was but the third of a procession of victims who was attacked with lead pipes and heavy glass pint pots. Had that attack occurred today the victim would be charged with a racist outburst because he kept ranting "he's dead the Black bastard" as the surgeon put 60 plus stitches and a dozen clips in the lacerated face. Even to this day he gets cold sweats whenever a gang appears with a peroxide pussy and a gorilla swapping phlegm. Not fear for himself, but with the knowledge that he cannot say, do or seem to do anything because the law prohibits truth and history.
Is this the legacy the future holds for the English? No room for English men; they are in foreign parts defending corrupt Labour.

Britain today

The once revered concept of British justice is now a corrupt and politicised mess. Violent and habitual criminals are given light sentences or spend time in over-crowded prisons pampered and with all luxuries supplied whilst conversely, motorists and law-abiding citizens protecting their homes or acting in self-defence are punished mercilessly. Should anyone dare to suggest that porridge should be a harsher punishment, they will cross swords with the myriad of Human Rights NGO's whose self-perpetuating mandate is to always portray criminals as victims. Discrimination against any victim group: Criminals, Blacks, Muslims, Homosexuals, etc. is treated as a hate-crime or a violation of human rights and offenders will be forced to atone for their crime including attending "Corrective Behaviour Courses". Such obvious brainwashing to impose the Multicultural ideology is not deemed a human rights violation of course.

Cheap fares?

New Research: Departmental use of Taxis and Chauffeured Cars

The business of Government, just like any other, often takes people out of the office. Whether for a meeting or an event, civil servants and ministers frequently have to travel, and sometimes a taxi or chauffeured car is the most appropriate way.

19 (of the 20) Whitehall departments spent more than £8 million on taxis and hired car services between them, averaging over £420,000 per department.

“Current spending on taxis and chauffeured cars is excessive. When ordinary businesses are trying to save money by getting employees to take the bus, it is only fair that public officials do the same. Some taxi rides on the taxpayers’ pound are unavoidable, but too much is being spent on the luxury of convenience while cheaper options are available.”

The Alickadoos are listening to the troops - at last.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup joined forces with Army boss Sir Richard Dannatt to say extra equipment WOULD save lives.

Their calls contradicted the Premier who has insisted Our Boys had enough "to do the job".

Chief of the Defence Staff Sir Jock also won a climbdown over troop numbers during a 40-minute showdown with Mr Brown at No10.

Readers of this blog will understand that I derive no pleasure after years of berating the effete politicians for demanding of the soldier that which he/she cannot attain themselves.
For years they have ignored protestations over military vehicles. Had but one politician the courage to listen and then report to the House of Thieves that they are wasting billions of tax payer money on vehicles the Rhodesian Army would never have used - and that over thirty years ago - there would never have been a consequential and significant loss of life.
For years it has been obvious that the military is led by donkeys only interested in their own pensions. How the truth is coming home to bite them.Shamedly at the expense of young and valuable lives. Note, not a single Labour politician has risked a minute in the true service of the Nation. The Conservatives have done little better.

A United States Marine

The train was quite crowded, and a U. S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle.
The war-weary Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"
The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular "Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat."
The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog.
"Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired."
She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"
This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down.
The woman shrieked, "Someone must defend my honor! This American should be put in his place!"
An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window."

For my regular readers who think I disparage too often against our Yankee cousins, they could not be so wrong. The fact that I have two sisters and their families in Canada gives me a close affinity to them and a great desire to have them safe. This does not mean I do not wish the people of the United States the same, but I make no apologies for nepotism. Thank you America for all the good things you have brought us. Shame about the Bush Wars.

More Canadians die in Afghanistan

Chopper crash kills Canadian soldiers

Master Corporal Pat Audet, left, and Corporal Martin Joannette died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan July 6.

A helicopter crash possibly caused by mechanical failure claimed the lives of two Canadian soldiers on Monday, bringing Canada's death toll from the Afghanistan mission to four in as many days.

The crash of the Griffon helicopter at an American forward operating base in Zabul province, about 80 kilometres northeast of Kandahar city, killed Master Corporal Pat Audet and Corporal Martin Joannette along with a coalition soldier from another country.
