I wish I was stateless


Old Holborn (http://bastardoldholborn.blogspot.com/2011/08/round-them-up.html), as usual, has hit the nail on the head.

The UN is shocked, shocked I tell you that there are people still wandering around without “statehood”. They estimate that between 12 and 15 million people are currently free range as opposed to part of the flock.

Norman Scarth: today’s hearing in The Administrative Court (London)


Team Norman will be in court today at 10:30am.

I know that they have been working non-stop for Norman’s release.

From: https://justicefornormanscarth.wordpress.com/2011/08/24/royal-courts-of-justice-listing/.

Dear MR JUSTICE WYN WILLIAMS, we the people appeal to you to treat this particular case with great sensitivity and care, – as we are deeply concerned about Norman Scarth’s health, and of his age which is 86 years old. It’s currently horrendous for him being held in a category B prison. So it is for these reasons alone we ask you to take these points into consideration when summing up the mitigating evidence of this case, – and that the conclusion you decided to come to, – will at least permit you to grant Mr Scarth bail, – and that an alternative can be sought in how the courts should deal with such a brave man and British war hero such as Norman Scarth, as I’m sure this case can be dealt with without Mr Scarth having to remain in custody. We thank you in advance for your consideration, – and respects to Justice.

I’m gonna be well-pissed off if Norman isn’t released today.

I’ll be telling Norman on Sunday, when I’ll go and visit him – I hope that I don’t have to.

 

Tasers: ‘Disturbing rise’ in arrest deaths


“Campaigners have warned of a “disturbing trend” over fatalities from police confrontations…”.

Seems like the cops behave as though they’re playing a computer game.

Former Home Sec Defends Inmates Painting Home


Apparently, Mrs. Smith has been naughty again. Remember the MP’s expenses and the porno-vids?

She has no shame and probably sleeps soundly.

More Thought-Crimes


40 held in pre-carnival dawn swoops

From: Yahoo News (http://uk.news.yahoo.com/40-held-pre-carnival-dawn-swoops-102304369.html).

Remember the last royal weddong – hundreds arrested prior to the event?

This is another example of a Police State – the Establishment decides to arrest the undesirables before a crime’s been committed.

Coming to a street near you.

 

 

Speed cameras have mixed results


From Yahoo News (http://uk.news.yahoo.com/data-show-speed-camera-effects-010032140.html).

The story suggests that some cameras have actually increased accident rates.

Regardless, I can’t see this cash-cow been managed for the benefit of pedestrians and road-users.
