Happy Accident of Fate

Scottish Prime Minister, non-elect, Gordon Brown

If the Scottish Prime Minister non-elect Gordon Brown had been Prime Minister in 1805, European history might have taken a different course:

HMSVictoryPanorama

Nelson: “Order the signal, Hardy.”
Hardy: “Aye, aye sir.”
Nelson: “Hold on, that’s not what I dictated to Flags. What’s the meaning of this?”
Hardy: “Sorry sir?”
Nelson (reading aloud): “‘England expects every person to do his or her
duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious
persuasion or disability.’ – What gobbledegook is this?”
Hardy: “Admiralty policy, I’m afraid, sir. We’re an equal opportunities
employer now. We had the devil’s own job getting ‘England’ past the censors, lest it be considered racist.”
Nelson: “Gadzooks, Hardy. Hand me my pipe and tobacco.”
Hardy: “Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free working environments.”
Nelson: “In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the
mainbrace to steel the men before battle.”
Hardy: “The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. Its part of the
Government’s policy on binge drinking.”
Nelson: “Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we’d better get on with it. Full
speed ahead.”
Hardy: “I think you’ll find that there’s a 4 knot speed limit in this
stretch of water.”
Nelson: “Damn it man! We are on the eve of the greatest sea battle in
history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow’s nest
please.”
Hardy: “That won’t be possible, sir.”
Nelson: “What?”
Hardy: “Health and Safety have closed the crow’s nest, sir. No harness, and they said that rope ladders don’t meet regulations. They won’t let anyone up there until a proper scaffolding can be erected.”
Nelson: “Then get me the ship’s carpenter without delay, Hardy.”
Hardy: “He’s busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the fo’c’sle Admiral.”
Nelson: “Wheelchair access? I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”
Hardy: “Health and safety again, sir. We have to provide a barrier-free
environment for the differently abled.”
Nelson: “Differently abled? I’ve only one arm and one eye and I refuse even to hear mention of the word. I didn’t rise to the rank of admiral by playing the disability card.”
Hardy: “Actually, sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under represented in the
areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency.”
Nelson: “Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons.”
Hardy: “A couple of problems there too, sir. Health and safety won’t let the crew up the rigging without hard hats. And they don’t want anyone breathing in too much salt – haven’t you seen the adverts?”
Nelson: “I’ve never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the men to stand by to engage the enemy.”
Hardy: “The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral.”
Nelson: “What? This is mutiny!”
Hardy: “It’s not that, sir. It’s just that they’re afraid of being charged
with murder if they actually kill anyone. There’s a couple of legal-aid
lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks.”
Nelson: “Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?”
Hardy: “Actually, sir, we’re not.”
Nelson: “We’re not?”
Hardy: “No, sir. The French and the Spanish are our European partners now. According to the Common Fisheries Policy, we shouldn’t even be in this stretch of water. We could get hit with a claim for compensation.”
Nelson: “But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.”
Hardy: “I wouldn’t let the ship’s diversity co-ordinator hear you saying
that sir. You’ll be up on a disciplinary report.”
Nelson: “You must consider every man an enemy, who speaks ill of your King.”
Hardy: “Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural age.
Now put on your Kevlar vest; it’s the rules. It could save your life”
Nelson: “Don’t tell me – health and safety. Whatever happened to rum, sodomy and the lash?”
Hardy: As I explained, sir, rum is off the menu! And there’s a ban on
corporal punishment.”
Nelson: “What about sodomy?”
Hardy: “I believe that is now legal, sir.”
Nelson: “In that case…………… kiss me, Hardy

Making a Profit from Misery

brown

Scottish Prime Minister, non-elect, Gordon Brown

It is emerging that the Blair Brown regime is hoping to make a huge profit out of the misery of all those who were affected by the recent floods in Britain.

RNLIFloodRescue2407

The victims suffered the hardships of extreme flooding, voluntary organizations like the RNLI performed magnificently, essential services personnel worked diligently, but the Bliar Brown regime is set to make the profit

Brown is suggesting that 54 million pounds will go to flood victims. Early analysis suggests that this is not all new money and the real sum going to help those who have suffered from floods, partly caused by ten years of Blair Brown regime mismanagement, will be significantly less than the headline figure.

Against this, analysts have calculated that the regime will receive a one billion pound windfall in taxes on materials and services needed to repair the damage. Many a business would like a return of one billion on an investment of less than 54 million!!!!

All Change? – NO CHANGE!!!!!

Scottish Prime Minister, non-elect, Gordon Brown

Gordon Brown followed Tony Blair, promising to be a regular sort of guy, governing by consultation and refusing to employ spin and deception.

Amazing how quick the claims fall apart.

As he was making his promises, his propaganda department was hard at work and have had a much more successful first month than he did.

The reality is that the Blair Brown regime is following the course of the last ten years, saying one thing and doing something very different.

Scottish Prime Minister is preparing for a snap election before the worst of the bad news leaks out.

One of the first tasks was to suggest that the two new Royal Navy super aircraft carriers would be ordered, following on from commitments to fund a huge new nuclear missile submarine programme. If that looks to be at odds with all the other Brown statements, leaks, spin and news, it makes perfect sense for a Scottish Prime Minister who fears that the Scottish Nationalists will target his seat at the next Westminister elections and attempt to decapitate Brown’s national socialists. This is a very real threat after the strong showing by the Scottish Nationalists at the recent Scottish Parliamentary elections that resulted in Scottish Nationalist leader Alex Salmon being voted in as First Minister in Scotland and the Blair Brown regime being thrashed in the polls.

It may take the British news media a while to see how Brown is mislaeading them but probably not as long as it took them to realize how Blair had duped them.

Good Anglo-Russian Relations

AGX Logo jpeg

At a time of sabre rattling it is easy to believe that Anglo-Russian relations are in melt-down, so its good to get a different story.

British solo circumnavigator Adrian Flanagan is attempting the first vertical (polar) expedition. He set out in October 2005 from Britain and headed South down the Atlantic towards the Antarctic Ocean. Foreign and Commonwealth over-confidence leading him to believe that everything was in place to allow him to navigate along the northern coast of Russia in the final stages of his voyage.

Unfortunately FCO was wrong in its assumptions and the Russian Federation required information and assurances to enable the Northern Sea Route administration to make exceptions to allow the necessary permissions to be issued. The Expedition Manager ended up starting her own negotiations with the Russian authorities. The time lost through FCO over-confidence meant that the permissions arrived too late to beat the weather window and Adrian who had rounded the fearsome Cape Horn and headed up the Pacific towards the Bering Strait had to leave his 40 foot yacht in Nome Alaska for the Winter.

This month he returned to Nome and prepared Barrabas for the final stage of his historic voyage, leaving Nome for the Russian Port of Provideniya to present his permits and receive the final authority to complete his circumnavigation.

If he is able to navigate the NSR between the Russian coast and the Arctic ice fields, he will become the first person to complete a vertical circumnavigation in any kind of vessel, alone or with a crew, crossing all the lines of longitude in the process.

He preported today on the cordial assistance of the FSB and the other Russian authorities responsible for Russian regulations in along the Arctic Coast:

I departed Provideniya on Monday at 1100am local time after a brief but hugely reassuring visit to clear Russian customs and gain my final permit to travel Russia’s northern Polar route. The weather is clear and fine as a high pressure system continues to sit over the Bering Strait. This stretch of water can be dangerous with fast currents running in both directions between the Chukchi Sea in the north and the Bering Sea to the south. High pressure will give me light winds to navigate my way into the Arctic.

I was interviewed by a local journalist just before I left Provideniya. My FSB security detail and I had developed a mutual fondness with cameras being handed to one another to take pictures for the record, speaking as we did in the universal language of broken English, mime and gesticulation punctuated with groans of frustration as meanings were lost.

I have covered 100 miles towards the strait and should pass through within the next 24 hours. My appetite has gone AWOL. Nevertheless, the onset of a headache told me I needed to raise blood sugar so I forced down same spaghetti and sardines. Under full sail during the night, Barrabas touched 6.5 knots despite her 6,000lbs load of fuel and water. If ever a boat had real guts, it’s this one. While she battled on, I slept for four hours.

New Petition – European Constitution

UnionJack EUflag2

The 10 Downing Street website includes a section which allows anyone to set up a petition that is presented to the Prime Minister. Potentially this is a national referendum. A number of petitions have loudly rejected Government policy.

This latest petition calls for the referendum promised to the British people on the European Constitution.

Eueopean leaders are queuing up to crow at how they fooled Blair and Brown into signing up.

The UK Independence Party has sponsored this latest on-line petition, but the issue applies to every British citizen, whatever they political affiliation. One reason why Prime Minister Brown does not intend the allow a referendum is because he knows that a majority of his Party Members would vote against the Treaty which was signed by Blair as he left office. Latest poll figures suggest that more than 75% of Britons want to have a referendum and that 68% intend to vote NO to the European Constitution.

Our new Prime Minister has made it clear that he does not intend to give us a referendum on the new European Union Treaty,

We say, ‘Enough is Enough’ and Nigel Farage MEP has started a petition calling on our government to let us have our say on Britain’s future relationship with the EU.

Please read about this campaign on www.letthepeopledecide.co.uk and sign our petition.

A Betrayal of Trust

BBC logo

The admissions by the BBC of widespread fraud should deeply shock listeners and viewers. They should also be followed by equally widespread resignations, starting from the top.

HMQE2

HM The Queen is one of the very few Heads of State to be highly regarded around the world for her public service and selfless dedication

It appears that the only reason for these damning confessions to be made in public is that widespread condemnation followed the attempts by the BBC to falsely portray HM The Queen. In some some countries, any attack on the Head of State would result in immediate imprisonment and possible execution, even if the allegations were correct. To attack the Head of State by editing film to show an event that never happened defies belief.

In attacking the Head of State, this is not just an attack on someone who has an impeccable record of service over many decades, but is also attack on the nation.

Once upon a time the British Broadcasting Corporation enjoyed an international reputation for the honesty and integrity of their broadcasts. Even enemies agreed that the BBC could be relied on for accurate reporting.

David Kelly

Dr David Kelly was a tragic victim of the Blair Brown regime and his honesty was used to bully the last BBC resistance

As the politicised Blair Broadcasting Company, BBC standards rapidly and visibly fell. The death of Dr David Kelly, caused by the Blair Brown regime, was used to bully any remaining resistance inside the BBC. From that point the BBC has become known for its political basis, its unreliable reporting and its profligate waste.

It has continued under the revised Blair Brown regime to display outrageous political bias, promoting the Brown fiction that he leads a brand new Government when only the deck chairs have been moved around the decks of the Titanic.

Now comes the admission that widespread fraud of viewers and listeners has become standard practice. Officials have attempted to mitigate the crimes by claiming that no individuals profited personally. Even if this was true, it is still no defence of criminality.

The reality is that the public have been tricked into paying to enter competitions that were fixed so that no money would be paid to real contestants. On each occasion, a contestant was being charged only a few pounds, but the total scale of the fraud ran into millions. That money was used by the BBC and one use was to pay employees who therefore benefited personally from the fraud whether they were aware of it or not. Those organizing the frauds were fully aware of what they were doing.

It remains to be seen how many BBC personnel will resign, how many will be sacked, and what rank they held in the BBC at the time of the frauds.

It also remains to be seen what action the police will take to investigate the situations exposed by the BBC confessions and who will be brought to trial on charges of fraud. If the public had been defrauded by an insurance company or a high street store, the police would already be conducting a vigorous investigation.

The BBC has tried a further mitigation by suggesting that fraud on this scale is endemic in British broadcasting. This is no mitigation. If the allegations are justified, the police should be vigorously investigating all broadcasters and only investigation on this scale would establish which broadcasters are guilty of fraud and which are innocent.

ARE YOU LISTENING MR BROWN?

UKIPheader2

Steve Allison, Agent to Toby Horton, Sedgefield Parliamentary by-election reports on the By-Election to replace Tony Blair, War Criminal-at-large.

Well I’ve just sent Derek Clark MEP and his wife off to canvas in Sedgefield. It was very quiet in Ferryhill and Chilton this afternoon but we realised it was Ladies Final at Wimbledon so maybe that was contributing to the lack of people. In Bromley of course we had the World Cup which dictated some of the canvassing timetable but as someone whose knowledge of sport is “basic” to say the least I’m afraid the implications of a big TV Sporting events are lost on me.

The Candidate, Toby Horton, is pout with Dave, George and Ronnie, three stalwarts from Hartlepool Branch and has been since just before twelve noon. I gave them an outline plan and set them off. The plan being flexible depending on who was about. It was a “show the flag” operation and hopefully it was taken literally as I have a couple of boxes of car flags which I’m giving out to everyone who turns up to help. There was a short shower just after the Candidate and his team lefty so I hope they didn’t get too wet, or worse took cover in a local pub and are still there 4 hours later.

There are 11 confirmed runners and riders in the Sedgefield by-election so its quite a crowded field, The usual Labour, Lib-Dim and Tory entries are joined by Christ is our lord Party, an Independent, Anti Crime Party, Green, Monster Raving Loony, BNP, English democrats and of course our UKIP Candidate, Toby Horton.

All postal voters have received a letter from Toby in the past few days and individually addressed election leaflets will be going through doors next week. In addition to this an A5 size lossy card with Toby’s introduction is being delivered right across the ward. One or two stunts are also being planned which should catch the media attention (we hope!).

The weather has now cleared nicely and we will be door knocking in Sedgefield between now and 8.00pm. Anyone who wants to help would be gratefully received any time. We have leafleting during the day and door to door canvassing in the evenings. If you can’t make it ion person then send your cash instead. £50 will pay for 1,000 leaflets to be delivered on your behalf.

I’ll finish with an apology to my regular readers……its been a while since my last e-mail but I changed my computer recently;y to one running windows Vista and have had nothing but problems. I’ve had to go back to an old e-mail address book and hope that everyone receiving this is still happy to do so. If you are not receiving this then please let me know…….not sure how you do that?

Canvassing 6.00 till 8.00pm every night next week. Contact me at steveallison@ukip.org to find out where we are meeting up.
