UK A local official who just renewed her membership with the Conservative Party a week back, left her post, The Telegraph reported on Feb. 24th, Sunday.
Kevin Pietersen lost his spot in the England side and was left out of the team for the Lord's Test against South Africa after the incident involving text messages he sent to his friends in the South Africa team.
Pietersen was accused of having sent texts to South Africa players containing derogatory remarks against his captain, Andrew Strauss, during the current Test series. What is worse than the allegations thrown at him for abusing Strauss is of providing tactical advice to the opposing team’s players to have their fast bowlers go around the wicket to Strauss. In response, Kevin Pietersen issued a public apology for sending provocative text messages to his close friends in the South Africa team, and then dismissed them as banter between friends. Even the South Africa team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee supported his claim by insisting: "Text messages were sent but it was banter."
Britain's leading Muslim bodies say they are fighting extremism. In one of our most respected mosques, Sara Hassan came face to face with hardline female preachers of separatism. Here, she reports on the shocking results of her investigation:
In a large balcony above the beautiful main hall at Regent's Park Mosque in London - widely considered the most important mosque in Britain - I am filming undercover as the woman preacher gives her talk.
What should be done to a Muslim who converts to another faith? "We kill him," she says, "kill him, kill, kill…You have to kill him, you understand?
The recent announcement by the British government to introduce a system of presumed consent in place of the current system of organ donation has caused uproar among certain minority groups against a background of widespread commendation by the British Public.
With Britain, like much of the developed world, suffering from a shortage of organs for transplant, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has advocated a change in policy in which doctors will be given licence to assume a deceased person's consent for the removal of his/her organs for the purpose of organ donation unless such a person has "opted out" before death. A similar change in policy recently occurred in Spain, where changing to a system of presumed consent has seen an increase in the availability of organs for transplantation there.
In Britain the far left is tiny. Like the British far right and the extreme Islamist movement, it has no chance of establishing itself in the critical mass that is Middle England and Britain’s sagacious first-past-the-post governmental system thus ensures it remains where it belongs - in the political wilderness / on the political fruit farm.
Occasionally you hear public huffs and puffs from far lefties. Since these days they are short of comrades and find it uphill rustling up a decent crowd by themselves, they usually congregate in some kind of unholy alliance (the Black Red Alliance, Islamist-Leftist compact is a well known one) in which they rant and bluster and, as we’ve seen recently, are still prone to violence.
We'll be updating you on details and developments of the Olympic games as the event unfolds. Today we are presenting the venues for topographical overview.
The stadium is on a peninsula, with waterways on three sides. Construction officially started on 22 May 2008, under the watchful eye of then Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
A 20m-high "wrap" will encircle the 900m circumference, decorated with historical sporting champions, participating countries' flags and sponsor logos.
The 80,000-seat stadium is expected to be converted into a 25,000-capacity venue after the Games, although debate still rages as to what it will be used for.
A Bangladesh court refused bail on Sunday to 10 suspected members of the Hizb ut Tahrir group, which had threatened to bomb key installations if they were not released.
Police said the group’s members had said in faxed messages that they would launch bomb and grenade attacks unless the detainees were freed without delay. One fax was received at the police commissioner’s office in Rajshahi on Saturday evening. Similar messages were sent to several police headquarters on September 4, the police said.
The blogger Richard Bartholomew (Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion) has been stalking me for a while now. He works as the unpaid lackey for the infamous electronic stalker, thug and discredited Australian, Tim Ireland of Bloggerheads.
It seems that Tim “Stalker” Ireland is getting Richard Bartholomew to do all his dirty work these days after Ireland was dragooned into a police station in Surrey ten days ago to face questions relating to stalking Nadine Dorries, the Conservative MP. This latest police inquisition (“under caution and recorded” according to the Dorries Blog) comes after Ireland has ducked and dived (and been questioned by) the police for years whilst writing aggressive, often completely fabricated posts about a series of political enemies including his local MP Ann Milton, Tory MPs Patrick Mercer, Jeremy Hunt, Jonathan Lord and other Tory targets including me.
Glen Jenvey is the subject of a 2005 book by Neil Doyle called Terror Tracker. In Doyle’s book Jenvey comes across as something of an expert in sniffing out terrorists online. And it was with this understanding of him that I met him in 2006 and asked him to become involved in a project I had set up to help pass intelligence on Islamist extremists to the British and other authorities.
I had no reason to doubt Jenvey back then. He had a criminal record - but so did many talented people. At first I was wary that he sought the limelight. Yet when he set to work recording Omar Bakri and sent me some astonishing results I knew I’d chosen well. The year that followed was a great success.
I fell out with Jenvey in March 2007. He, Starkey and an Islamic crone called Ilham Frandsen wanted more cash than they were worth from the project we were involved in - more cash than the project could afford. I’ve never worked with any of them after March that year. Since then all three of them have gone about trying to wreck me in their own particular ways. Happily they have all failed and continue to fail, especially now they know that the police are aware of their motives and are keeping a beady eye on them.
On Halloween Saturday this year - when juveniles dressed as freaks will be collecting candy on the streets of London - the extremist Islamist sect Al Muhajiroun’s juvenile freaks (with no need to dress up any differently) will be marching from the House of Commons to Trafalgar Square to demand the full implementation of Shari’ah law in Britain.
Islam4UK - the brainchild of Omar Bakri’s madcap sidekick Anjem Choudary - are calling for Nelson’s Column and statue to be replaced by an Islamic clock, pots of gold coins to replace Trafalgar Square’s bronze lions and for the pool fountain in the square to become a wudhu area (washing area) for Muslims
At least these extremist morons have a sense of humour - some of their illustrations of this future Londonistan are rather amusing http://www.islam4uk.com/non-muslims/62-non-muslims/354-trafalgar-square-under-the-shariah - not that they have a ghost of a chance of ever materialising.
By “Shari’ah law” these ghouls, who have the gall to call themselves Muslims, do not expect an imposition of some softcore Shari’ah penal code in Britain. They want the full gambit of stoning, flogging and amputations. Let’s be clear here: these extremists want death sentences for raped women and homosexuals, to take away the rights of women and non-Muslims, to shut schools for girls and have us all turn to their “Islam” or suffer the consequences. They want a return to barbarism in these islands not seen for a millennium - a barbarism which makes the savagery of the Vikings seem somehow modern and enlightened. They want to rip up Britain’s golden centuries of progress and have us all live like Taliban savages.
