Manson Is Dead.

I wonder how much it cost keeping him in prison for a whole life sentence? I wonder if people feel that US society had good value for that huge sum spread over 48 years?

Keighley Drugs Sentencing Is Idiotic!


John Burrill, Bingley.
THE police in Keighley are to be congratulated on obtaining convictions on 20 drug dealers recently with total sentences of 70 years. But, how frustrated they must feel to know that they will have to arrest them all over again in 18 months when, on average, they will be released.
It is deplorable that some of those convicted, for the second and third times, only received sentences of three years.
These people need to know that drug dealing is abhorrent and does not pay, sadly these sentences do not illustrate that. Let’s hope for longer next time. Yorks Post.

UN criticises EU policy in Libya as 'inhuman'

The head of human rights at the United Nations has lashed out at the EU's migration policy towards Libya.
In a statement on Tuesday (14 November), UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said forcing rescued people at sea to return to Libya for detention was inhuman.
"The suffering of migrants detained in Libya is an outrage to the conscience of humanity," he said.
The EU has helped broker deals with Libyan authorities as part of a broader plan to prevent people from leaving the country.
It includes, among others, training the Libyan coast guard to take migrants and refugees from the sea and then returning them to the war-torn country.
Many but not all are then sent to detention centres, which are often ruled by armed militia groups.
The EU's naval operation, Sophia, as of earlier this month has trained some 142 Libyans.
A first training package included 93 Libyan trainees, which had spent 14 weeks on board the Italian ship San Giorgio and the first two weeks on board the Dutch ship Rotterdam.
Another 20 senior officers at the rank of captain or commodore were trained in Greece. Malta hosted 20 trainees and a module in Italy has been started for another 66 personnel.
The Libyan coast guard has since intercepted almost 19,000 people since the start of the year until October.
Those interceptions were supposed to take place within Libyan territorial waters but charity rescue boats say the coast guard is also operating in international waters.
German-based rescue ship Mission Lifeline said in late September the Libyan coast guard fired shots, boarded it, and demanded they handed over the people it had rescued at sea.
Libya's department of combating illegal migration (DCIM) says some 19,900 people are held in detention centres as of early November, up from around 7,000 in mid-September.
The spike is due in part to the thousands of people left stranded in the smuggling hub city of Sabratha following fighting among rival Libyan militia factions in October.
Both the EU-funded International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) at the time stepped in to help the migrants. Many were sent to detention centres.
The same centres, which also house women and children, are ripe with abuse, including rapes and murders.
"The international community cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the unimaginable horrors endured by migrants in Libya," said Hussein.
He noted that efforts to improve the conditions in the detention centres was not enough and that more needed to be done to ensure the protection of migrant's human rights.
Similar comments were made earlier this year by the president of Doctors without Borders (MSF), a medical NGO, Joanne Liu, who accused the EU of "feeding a criminal system of abuse" by forcing migrants back to Libya.
The EU over the summer set aside some €46 million to boost Libya borders and step up support for the Libyan border and coast guard.
The EU backed programme, implemented by the Italians, includes giving the Libyans both training and equipment in terms of maritime surveillance and rescues.

Foreign Aid Is SO Badly Handled.

The Tories need to stop virtue signalling and start looking out for the interests of the British people.


Published Nov 18, 2017
According to figures released by the Department for International Development, the UK paid £13.3 billion in overseas foreign aid last year, meeting the target of 0.7% of the country's gross domestic product. Of this, £1.5 billion was sent to the EU to spend on overseas aid projects.
The total amount given away in foreign aid last year was £1.25 billion higher than the year before, with the amount given to European aid programmes increasing by £177 million.

Responding to the figures, Dr Julia Reid MEP said: “I think this just goes to show that the Tory party are more interested in virtue signalling to the rest of the world than saving our NHS and looking out for the people of this great nation.”

“Our hospitals are overcrowded and understaffed, and our hospital staff are underpaid and overworked. Our NHS is in desperate need of an urgent cash injection. In order to save money, some NHS Trusts are now making patients wait at least three months before they can have non-urgent operations. It’s even been reported that NHS hospitals are so cash-strapped that bosses are deliberately avoiding filling vacant positions for up to a year in an effort reduce their spending. 
“And yet despite this, the Government is still adamant that spending 0.7% of the country’s GDP on foreign aid is the right thing to do. Just take a look at what some of the money was spent on last year: £86,616 on yoga classes for heart patients in India, £86,254 on research relating to cutting salt intake in China and £742,267 on sustainable rice research for countries in the far east. 

“It’s not just the foreign aid budget either. This week the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy announced they would be doubling their contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to help make up the shortfall after Trump decided to withdraw contributions from the US.

“It’s time the Tories stopped virtue signalling to the rest of the world and started putting the British people first.”

Love.

Persecution Of Joshua Sutcliffe.

(PHOTO: CHRISTIAN LEGAL CENTRE)Joshua Sutcliffe
A Christian maths teacher in the United Kingdom has been removed from the classroom for referring to a biologically female transgender student as a girl.
Joshua Sutcliffe, a 27-year-old who teaches 11 to 18-year-olds at a school in Oxfordshire, has been removed from his teaching capacity and is facing a disciplinary hearing after it was alleged in a Nov. 2 parental complaint that he discriminated against a female-born transgender student by stating "well done, girls" when addressing the student's small group during class. 
According to the London-based Christian Legal Centre, the Cherwell School launched a week-long investigation into the complaint. During the investigation, Sutcliffe, who also pastors at Christ Revelation church, has been barred from teaching and kept "in isolation" in a staff room.
The student in question self-identifies as male and Sutcliffe reportedly had not been instructed formally that she was to be referred to as a boy. Christian Post.

ECJ Idiocy.

UK Citizens Become 2nd Class Citizens In Their Own Country


Published Nov 16, 2017
A European Union court has ruled that EU citizens who become British have more rights than other Brits to bring in spouses from outside the bloc to live in the UK.
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has rejected the claim that all British citizens should be subject equally to the Home Office’s stricter immigration regulations on gaining residency, which means Europeans who gain British citizenship do not need to meet an earnings threshold of £18,600 a year, for example, to bring in a partner from outside the EU, unlike those born in the UK.
UKIP's Immigration Spokesman John Bickley said, "When the EU (ECJ) rule that an illegal immigrant has more rights than a British citizen you know that the 'lunatics have taken over the asylum'. This is just the latest example of illegal immigrants gaming the immigration system with the help of lawyers lining their pockets with taxpayers' money.
Illegal immigrants are costing the British taxpayer a fortune whilst the provision of public services and housing for the poorest in our society is a disgrace. The sooner the UK is out of the corrupt and self serving EU the better. When we make our own laws again the voters can throw out any government that is stupid enough to allow this sort of scam to prevail."

Housing Crisis? - No. Population Crisis? - YES!


We don't have a housing crisis - we have a population crisis: RICHARD LITTLEJOHN says the horror stories of 'Brexodus' are a pack of lies.

The Prime Minister announced yesterday that she is to take personal charge of solving Britain's acute housing crisis.
In next week's Budget, planning rules will be relaxed, social housing debt cancelled, stamp duty cut and billions of pounds will be pumped into house-building projects.
New homes will spring up across the land, on brownfield sites, in back gardens, on the rooftops of existing buildings even.
Yet Theresa May says it can all be achieved while protecting the Green Belt. Build up, not out, is the new mantra. Pile 'em high and sell 'em cheap.
Marvel as Mother Theresa morphs into Bob the Builder. Can we fix it? Yes we can!
But hang on a minute. Are we really going to need all these little boxes post Brexit?
Not if the Remain scaremongers are to be believed. They're like those deluded Japanese soldiers after Hiroshima, hiding out in the jungle, still fighting the last war.
Once we leave the EU, they warn, jobs will dry up and millions of immigrants will flee the country. Indeed, scared migrants are doing so already, forced out by mobs of knuckle-scraping neo-Nazis roaming the streets stirring up a hate crime epidemic.
The NHS is on the brink of collapse, as nurses and doctors who came here from overseas seek sanctuary in safe havens abroad.
Crops are left to rot in the fields, as agricultural workers return home to Eastern Europe. Soon you won't be able to hire a Polish plumber for love nor money. Pubs and restaurants will close their doors because they can't recruit foreign bar staff and waitresses. There won't be a car wash left anywhere in Britain.
All those Polski skleps which have taken over from Asian corner shops will go bankrupt overnight, as their customers retreat in droves to Warsaw and Gdansk. Our inner cities will become ghost towns and our public services will implode, shorn of hard-working immigrants run out of Britain, virtually at gunpoint.

That, at least, is the apocalyptic vision post Brexit painted by the fanatics still trying to perpetuate Project Fear. If they're right, then we won't need to build millions of new homes, since Brexodus — as it's being dubbed — will free up housing stock everywhere.
Rents and house prices will come crashing down as demand plummets and young people will be able to scale the housing ladder like Barbary apes. Dream on.
Like all the other horror stories invented by the Remoaners, Brexodus is a pack of lies. Far from foreign nationals fleeing Britain, they are continuing to flock here in record numbers. We don't have a housing crisis, we have a population crisis — driven almost exclusively by immigration. It's one of the main reasons people voted Leave.
MigrationWatch UK — which has been about the only body to tell the unvarnished truth about immigration over the past couple of decades — reports that eight out of ten new households established between 2000 and 2015 are made up of migrant families.
As these new arrivals age, it will put even more pressure on housing. MigrationWatch says we should consider, for instance, the number of young men — especially from Eastern Europe — currently living as many as a dozen or more to a house. In time, they will all want to start families and set up homes of their own.
MigrationWatch's Lord Green said: 'We have a major crisis over housing affecting huge numbers of people, especially the young. Yet the focus of debate is still on supply; nobody dares talk about demand and its principal driver, immigration.'
What's more, in the five years up to 2015, the number of households headed by someone born in Britain actually fell. So if there is a Brexodus, it is comprised of British nationals moving abroad, many saying they don't want to live in a country they no longer recognise.
The reality is the polar opposite of the Remoaners' propaganda about frightened migrants fleeing racist Britain and plunging us into an economic crisis.
In truth, the economy has performed pretty spectacularly since the referendum result — certainly better than the rest of Europe — creating an explosion in jobs which are being filled by workers from home and abroad.
For instance, the preposterous Vince Cable claimed that 10,000 foreign staff 'have walked away from the National Health Service because they don't think they're needed or wanted any more'. Yet just a few days ago, a forensic Mail investigation blew Vinnie's little fantasy out of the water.
At the end of June there were 3,181 more EU nationals working in the health service than in 2016. Yesterday, official Government figures from the Office for National Statistics showed there were 2.38 million EU nationals working in Britain — an increase of 112,000 on a year ago.
The number of Romanians and Bulgarians who have found jobs here now stands at almost 350,000, up by a third in the past 12 months. They have no incentive to scuttle off back to Bucharest and Sofia any time soon.

Last time anyone looked, the 10,000 Poles, Lithuanians and other assorted Eastern Europeans who have made their home in Boston, Lincolnshire — Britain's Brexit capital — showed no signs of upping sticks and sloping off home, pursued by the provisional wing of Ukip. Nor will they have to.
Despite the pig-headed intransigence and obstructionism of the EU's Brexit negotiators, determined to punish the British people for voting Leave, Mrs May has already guaranteed the rights of EU citizens living here. And it's not just the EU, either. Immigrants from all over the world are still making Britain their top destination, often risking life and limb to get here.
Why would they want to join a sinking ship? Are they all crazy? Are they really determined to make their new lives in a racist, basket-case, post-Brexit wilderness?
Or could it be, perhaps, that they are attracted here to join friends and family who report that Britain is a tolerant, civilised, multi-cultural country with a generous welfare system and a bright, independent future offering endless opportunity for economic advancement?
Millions of migrants are choosing Britain over the sclerotic countries of the bureaucratic, moribund EU. And will continue to do so once we leave and become again a confident, outward-looking nation, free to embrace the globe and all it has to offer.
That will mean embracing not just free trade but the brightest and best immigrants, too, who will continue to be welcomed here.
That, in turn, will mean they're all going to need somewhere to live. Which is why the Prime Minister is right to make housing a priority.
Our innate resolve and pragmatic nature suggests we will tackle this housing crisis with the determination and elan we have applied to every other crisis in our history.
Ignore the hysterical lies and predictions of doom, the death rattle of the Remoaners determined to sabotage Brexit by any means fair or foul.
Britain, home of Bob the Builder, will rise to the challenge.
Can we Brexit? Yes we can!

Holy Spirit In Churches - Then and Now.

The late Dr. A. W. Tozer, author and pastor, said,
 “If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference.

If the Holy spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would have stopped, and everybody would have known the difference.”
