Hate Crimes Law - Another Step Towards Fascism?
Those in politics who like to call themselves the progrssive left or progressive liberals love to talk about fairness and equality. Why themn are they so keen to introduce 'hate crime' laws that will grant privilege to certain groups in a system that depens on all being equal? Call us old fashioned but in our view there does not seem to be much justice in replacing one privileged elite with another.

A new law defining hate crimes passed in the USA this week violates the constitution according to its critics. It threatens the right to free speech and in allowing more severe penalites to be imposed if a crime is ajudged a hate crime than if the same crime had been commited without hatred on grounds of race, religion or sexual orientation being part of the motive. This clearly breaches the first of the US constitution's "self evident" truths, that all people are equal.

Let's leave the muslims, blacks and gays out of the argument because not being the centre of attention for once is guaranteed to piss them off.

OK Osama, Jeremiah, Perez, come and have a go if you think you're hard enough.

Say sombody saw me taking money out of a cashpoint, followed me into a quiet street and beat the crap out of me. How is it a worse crime if they did it because they hate disabled people than if they did it because they wanted my money?

In Britain we hve no written constitution, only custom and practice to protect or right of free speech. but Labour's plans to define racism in UK law as anything which a foreign person feeels is racist seems to me like the kind of right to free speech they enjoyed in Nazi Germany.

The Freethinkers must make a stand anainst the fascism of politically correct thinking now...

Liberal? What Does That Mean?What is a liberal? Is it something to do with the kind of politically correct thinking that obsesses over minority rights while seeking to marginalise mainstream society?

One involves Muslims and Halal meat in schools, in the other the gay rights lobby, famed for demanding tolerance, are showing no tolerance towards Roman Catholic religious principles.

Sleeping With Conservatives
Could You Hug A Tory asks a feature in The Guardian some time ago. Several typical Guardian writers describe their feelings of fear and loathing when, purely in the interests of science of course, they hugged prominent members of the Conservative Party. Me? Sex is non political. The last thing I worry about when a woman I fancy smiles at me is her politics
Pity The Poor Binmen
Whether the government in power is Labour, Conservative or coalition their idea of improving public sector efficiency sems to be to stop provinding services to the public but hire bigger and bigger armies of penpushers to administer the non provision of services. Just look what has happened with refuse collection over the years. We have ended up with a situation in which binmen are not allowed to lift or carry a bin for health and safety reasons...

Are You Sitting Comfortably? Then I'll Begin To Patronise You.Everyone hates those letters the government sends out, the ones that purport to be helping you claim what you, as a citizen of good standing are entitled to by way of benefits, health care, education, tax allowances etc. really are subtly bullying you into conformity. The most odious thing about them is the patronising, nannyish tone.
How To Be A BigotGordon Brown's dismissal or a voters concerns about immigration, jobs, crime and government debt as bigoted took the election campaign into a new zone. Now the labour, conservative and liberal democrat leaders can really go for each others throats. Bring it on
(In)equalities BillThe Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector. Bigoted BritainHugh Muir, a staff writer on The Guardian tells us about his friend Jerome, an 'equalities trainer' whocomplains about the closet bigots he encounters in his job. But are these hard working taxpayers really bigots or are they just white English people angry at the though that people like Jerome with stupid non jobs that carry titles like 'equalities trainer' are eating their tax money?
Five A DayA recent survey on our understanding of a portion of fruit and veg shows that 25% of the surveyed adults thought orange squash counted as a portion of fruit.

Somehow we supect Nanny State's nagging about the health benefits of five a day ae falling on deaf ears
Killing Historyhe government constantly whines that not enough pulips in their later school years take up sciences. The government itself however is pushing history off the curriculum. So as they strip the nation's young people of a sense who they are and destroy the national culture inthe name of diversity and multiculturalism can they complain if those young people feel alienated and do not wish to contribute positively to the national community
Populist AuthoritarianismThe Labour Party may talk of socialism but their Nanny State tyle of ovrbearing governmental control freakery rather than protecting the weak according to the political philosophy of John Locke seeks to suppress individualism and impose uniformity by spreading fear and panic. This approach achieves equality by making all weak and dependent. Unfortunately it debilitates the nation.
Global War On PovertyNick Clegg's war on poverty, which he will launch at a United Nations conference this week is doomed before it begins. Once again the arrogance of western politicians in assuming all the people in the world want to be as materially privileged, as advanced in technology and as indebted, stressed out and unhappy as we in the developed nations gets in the way of actually doing what needs to be done..
Pursuit Of MediocritySATS test, introduced in 1993, were supposed to meaure a pupil's progress through the education system from junior to senior school and ensure every child was fulfilling their potential.
