Play Them at Their Own Game

A new EU petition has been set up on the Government petition website that triggered the last motion:

We, the people of the United Kingdom, are dissatisfied with the result of the EU Referendum Debate on 24 October 2011 and would like the House of Commons to reconsider its decision in light of this petition and grant us an opportunity through a referendum to express our desire on the relationship with the EU.
I rather like playing them at their own game (i.e. keep asking the question until we get the right answer)! If you do too, please sign up here.

The EU Can Opt Out Lie

Dan Hannan hits the nail on the head once again:

"When the rules count for nothing, opt-outs are worthless. We opted out of the social chapter, but we had the 48-hour week imposed on us. We opted out of the euro, but we're being sent the bill for propping it up. We opted out of the border-free area, but we can't control who crosses our frontiers. We never agreed to a common European welfare state, but we're being dragged into one."

Dale Farm Gypies Go to Luton

Crikey! I might agree with removing the 'Travellers' but no-one deserves being forced to relocate to Luton!



[Time to start blogging again!]

In Support of Anna Raccoon

Anyone who is familiar with Anna's website will know that she is a decent lady. You will be similarly outraged at way the Libertarian Party UK has treated her.

Go see.

And then go tell.


Assuming the Worst

Reading the comments in Leg-Iron's "You want to have a child, do it outside" post, reminded me of our son's Christmas play earlier this academic year.

Prior to the start, the audience, full of family and close friends of the 4 to 6 year olds were told by the Headmistress in a very kind voice:

"I hope you will enjoy the play. Just a reminder that no photographs will be allowed - for obvious reasons".

Me: "Is that because we are all paedophiles?"

Stunned silence.

I enjoyed that.

Parish Notice - An Update

Just a quick note to say that I haven't given up all this blogging lark, it's just been hectic! I finally secured a permanent contract out here so am just about to start bringing the family over. I hope that I get the chance to blog soon, as there has been so much going on since my last serious post!

My wife has been reading all about what we've been up to and she's turning into a staunch campaigner. She surprised me by telling that she will not be filling in the Census, and has kept true to her word. I thought I was going to have to persuade her not to, but she tells me that it was the authoritarian instructions that was the straw that broke the camel's back!

So, now that's she's fully on board, we will progress with our NOUICOR and Lawful Rebellion pursuits. I still think it will be another couple of months before I'm blogging properly again, but I shall at least try to do something once a week, but fear it will be every two weeks.

Also, the break made me realise that I had become side tracked, which is fine as long I remember to concentrate on doing what I originally intended this blog for.

Thanks for the public and private support.

Parish Notice

Arrived in at my new job yesterday in HK. It's pretty full on, what with being thrown in at the deep end and trying to sort out the apartment etc. Anyway, what I'm trying to say, don't expect much (any?!) blogging for a little while whilst things settle down.

Leaving the EU - A MSM Campaign

As Douglas Carswell says, buy the Express today or at least read their pull-out guide to why we should leave the EU.

A momentum is building.


On collecting useless information...

"If Mrs. Miggins was a white, Irish, disabled Zoroastrian with mental health issues relating to her doubts over her sexual identity - why does it matter?  She is dead!  Who will collate this unnecessary information?  What purpose does it serve?" 
A good, fun post, typical of what we have all experienced when faced with public bodies (er, not Mrs. Miggins, you know what I mean)...

Victimhood Poker: No Laughing Matter When There Are Real Victims

Ordinarily, Victimhood Poker is a cause for fun. However, the seriousness underlying today's edition, where it appears that Muslims trump paedophile / sex victims, leaves no room for mirth.

The Guardian article, "Grooming and Our Ignoble Tradition of Racialising Crime" by Libby Brooks (complete with a telling illustration) covers the recent Times revelations about Pakistani sex gangs, stating:

Full Copy of BBC's Diversity Survey

As promised, I've made a copy of the BBC's Diversity Survey so as to keep for prosterity. It's still available on line to view but the opening page says it closed. However, I'm more than happy to host your answers in the comments below for my own mirth and merriment.

Urgent: Help the BBC on Diversity Policy

You can help the BBC with it's diversity policy by taking the survey that finishes today:

I would like to say that you won't believe some of the questions, but if anyone was of any doubt that the BBC seeks to social engineer, they should take it.

Cheers, FAV
H/T: Biased BBC

I wish all MPs understood this...

The only MP that I know of that gets it:
"Since the Civil War, Parliament's purpose is supposed to be overseeing how our taxes are spent. Instead of rubber stamping government spending decisions as they've done for decades, the Commons needs to assert its right to say "no". ... "
