Universities Start to Dump Malia Bouattia and NUS - good

The election of a blatant anti-Semite, Malia Bouattia, as President of the NUS is just one more sad symptom of how ill-educated our students are today, and how far education has slumped across the board. She thinks there are "Zionist-led media" and she defends Islamic terrorism. She thinks it's wrong for Jews to want one tiny little country of their own, where they can be safe from persecution, but it's all right for Islamists to take over the entire world.
There is little hope that this unsavoury young lady will respond to the petition for her to retract her remarks. Let's hope that she decides to run away to Syria, marry Jihadi John and have babies for ISIS.
Until she does, universities have the freedom to disaffiliate from the NUS, which has always been a breeding ground for political dogmatists and febrile nutcases. Three universities have so far done so: Hull, Newcastle and Lincoln.
There is little sign that Oxford students are keen to do so. No wonder, since they are far more pre-occupied nowadays campaigning to legalize "sex work" as they call it. The Oxford Student Union has announced in Cherwell that some students do "sex work" and it must be de-stigmatized! This claptrap is just what one would expect from the sort of sleazy types that run "No Heterox". Annie Teriba, Samuel M Horsley and the posturing trannies of Somerville History Society are far too pre-occupied with their "sexuality" to take any interest in world affairs. They've just got their heads firmly stuffed up each other's genderless underpants.
Petitioning President-Elect, National Union of Students Malia Bouattia

NUS President must retract comments, condemn terrorism and endorse policy on antisemitism

The National Union of Students has plumbed a new low, electing as its President a candidate who has been prominently revealed in recent weeks as having extremely troubling views about Jews. Malia Bouattia has called Birmingham University a “Zionist outpost in higher education” because it has “the largest Jsoc [Jewish student society] in the country.” She has railed against “Zionist-led media outlets”, defended Palestinian terrorism as “resistance” and voted against condemning ISIS.
Shortly before her election, the National Union of Students Conference debated whether to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, with fierce applause for the students who argued against joining in with the national memorial for the genocide which wiped out more than one third of the world’s Jewish population. Though the Conference voted to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day in the end, it was abundantly clear that those opposing the move had the backing of a very large number of delegates.
The National Union of Students has positioned itself as a fierce opponent of racism, with a ‘no platform’ policy which prevents racists from speaking. However today, the new President-elect of the union is someone whose actions contravene the definition of antisemitism adopted as policy by the union.
Please join us in calling on Malia Bouattia to retract her comments; condemn Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS (all of which espouse the most extreme antisemitic ideology possible); and endorse the definition of antisemitism used by the union, including antisemitism which masquerades as political discourse about Israel.
This petition will be delivered to:
  • President-Elect, National Union of Students
    Malia Bouattia


Campaign Against Antisemitism started this petition with a single signature, and now has 2,549 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.

Online Trolls Hall of Shame - Philip Gilbert

This is a weird one.


Philip Gilbert is a Facebook troll. He posts trite, worn-out clichés claiming that anyone who has different opinions is (wait for it) "closed-minded" and a "bigot". He doesn't just do this on discussion pages or in groups. He actually sends friend requests to people he hates so that he can go onto their private pages and post the same predictable stuff. They are friends of mine, that's  how I know.
You can find the same vocabulary replicated ad nauseam on the websites of mindless conformists.
It seems that Philip Gilbert has not been fortunate in the amount of education he has received. Being more blessed myself, I have read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 18 says,

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscie nce and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

It doesn't say that Christians are excluded. Nor does it say that anyone regarded by someone else as a "closed-minded bigot" is excluded.
Is Mr Gilbert by any chance a closed-minded bigot himself?  Or is he so open-minded that his brain has fallen out?
It appears from his Facebook page that he follows a curious Islamic sect that hails some one called Hazrat Ahmad  -  yes Ah-MAD I didn't make that up  - as the new Messiah. Gilbert's Facebook page offers a lot of his other deep insights. He shows photographs of the British royal family and the government of North Korea and thinks there is a really striking similarity between the two. Why? Because you can see military uniforms in both pictures. Prince William, who has served in the forces, occasionally wears his dress uniform, while Kim-Jong-Un, who has not, always wears a general's uniform. So that proves there is no difference between a head of state and a head of government!!! A communist dictatorship is just the same as a constitutional monarchy as far as Mr Philip Gilbert understands these matters.
After all, Kim Jong-Un hasn't taken a blind bit of notice of the TV spoof "The Windsors" on Friday evenings, which is obviously ridiculing him.
And here is another picture of Mr Philip Gilbert, at least it's one that he has used as his own profile picture so we have to assume it is him.



No kidding.
It really is scary to think that people with such rudimentary brains and educational deficit have got the vote.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has been translated into more than 350 languages worldwide, and more than100 African languages. The full text of its 30 articles in English can be found by clicking the subsequent links.

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Screwtape's jottings

My Dear Wormwood,
    I was a bit disappointed when I dropped in again at Holy Trinity Church. There was not much blatant corruption in evidence this Sunday. The Rev Peter Boulton-Lea put up a very good impression of being a Christian and the worst sin I could accuse them of was moaning about global warming while running the radiators on a scorching hot day.
However, I will say it again, you young devils in general have a very easy task and for most of the time you can put your feet up.
When I was setting out in my career we had to work far harder because there was some opposition. I remember the groans of tempters saddled with committed Christians, who spent their whole lives labouring in vocational jobs such as nursing and teaching without complaining about the pay or conditions. They worked in disaster relief and ran charities for orphans. They spent their weekends and retirement years doing voluntary work, everything from care of the old to manning food banks or lifeboats, without ever mentioning it or expecting to be thanked. They stayed with boring husbands and wives and looked after them in their old age. They invited irritating old aunts for Christmas merely because they had nowhere else to go, and baked cakes for school funds whenever anybody asked them to. Some of them even visited criminals in prison and encouraged them to reform. The worst sins they could be lured into were occasionally shopping on a Sunday or parking without putting the right metal disc into the machine.
      Luckily most of these stubborn cases are now dead or very, very old. Octogenarians, nonogenarians, most of them are now, if you can still find any. When they die out, society will feel the severe loss of something it never noticed was there. Everybody will be worse off, and nobody will know who to blame. They took this invisible contribution for granted. The younger generation are a completely different species. They are wholly won over to a creed of vice and depravity, that has been re-labelled as "human rights". When bold innovating devils first suggested that line of attack, most of us didn't believe it would work. We thought humans were much more intelligent than they are. Nowadays when people contribute to a charity it is often an organisation such as Terry Higgins Trust that is blatantly doing Our Work.

Henry and Miguel Jimenez

   We have had five young men arrive down here lately, nice fresh prey, from the London area. Their tempters are to be congratulated on despatching them so promptly, while they are hardly more than boys. One was Miguel Jimenez, aged 18, a café waiter living with a barrister named Henry Hendron, who held queer orgies inside his legal chambers at the Temple. Partaking in this lifestyle was how the toothy-grinned Miguel, from Colombia, could afford to live in central London. Barristers have the buying power -  baristas have to offer some other service.

This Hooray Henry admitted buying £1,000 worth of drugs from a BBC producer Alexander Parkin, aged 41, to use at the party (after the police read the messages on his mobile phone there wasn't much point going on denying it). They were called "meow" and GBL. When the dead body of his catamite was found the next morning, Hendron sobbed convulsively with self-pity and proclaimed that he was the victim of something called "chemsex" that had caused a tragic accident. Blame and guilt attached only to the drugs, which had somehow arrived in his flat just because he bought them. He will probably escape justice on earth because he has so many establishment friends and strings to pull  - Old Etonians don't go to jail for murder!  - but his tempter tells me he is not on the danger list for repentance.

Celebrity barrister Henry Hendron has admitted supplying party drugs that killed his teenage boyfriend

He will find it easy enough to replace Miguel using online "dating" systems. It's as simple as buying a new bicycle.
The other four arrivals here are very similar cases, Gabriel Kovari aged 21, Daniel Whitworth, 22, Anthony Walgate 23, and Jack Taylor, 25. All bagged for us! They went to meet Stephen Port, a gay chef and former rentboy, on one of those "gay dating" systems. Their bodies were found in the vicinity of a churchyard in Barking. They had been despatched to us down here with some more of these wonderful chemsex drugs, and their tempters have already got the press to blame "homophobia"!!! 
Never expect humans to be clever.
I will be watching the fun myself later on  - there is never anything good on TV.

                        Your affectionate uncle,
                                                               Screwtape.


This online advert reveals that Port is believed to have worked as a male escort while in his early thirties
                                   Our little helper. Stephen Port.

"During a search police recovered 60 self-seal bags of mephedrone, also known as meow meow, and bottles of party drug GBL with Hendron’s fingerprints on them. He admitted the two counts of supplying drugs at a hearing last Wednesday. The court had heard that the barrister had paid £1,000 for illicit highs to be used at the all-night party."

Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner Election

Some people would say that electing Police and Crime Commissioners, who need to stump up a deposit of £5,000 in order to stand at all, is needlessly politicising the police service. The post is paid between £70 -100,000 p.a. and we may well ask what these commissioners do to justify the cost.

If they siphon some of that generous salary back into the party that got them elected, then this relatively new system could be a very convenient way of getting more funds into the coffers of the older political parties.

 There are four candidates for the post of Police and Crime Commissioner in Thames Valley.
I sent the same question to all four of them i.e, what are they going to do to address the appalling situation with organised sex-grooming gangs targetting young, underage girls often from the most vulnerable social backgrounds? And how would they reassure us there would be no more cover-ups?

Only two of the candidates replied at all. Laetisia Carter (Labour) sent no response. Nor, so far, has Lea Trainer, the UKIP candidate.
John Howson, the Liberal Democrat candidate, sent a very prompt reply. viz.


Dear Julia,

There are 2 issues here for the PCC and Thames Valley police as a force. These are, dealing with historical sex abuse cases and preventing it happening now, both within families and with strangers. Oxfordshire County Council and TVP have established the Kingfisher Unit to handle current complaints and to ensure that there is training of police, social workers, teachers and NHS staff to detect, refer and in the case of the police take action to investigate cases where there may be sexual exploitation. This is more than many local authorities have achieved, but I am sure there is more that can be done. i think this is an issue all 4 candidates for PCC are concerned about. By way of history, I cannot recall it ever arising during the 2012 PCC election campaign as an issue.

As there is a current trial being held, it is more challenging to comment on historical sex abuse at this time, but lessons have been learnt: most notably that children are children however they present themselves and are not adults and thus should have greater protection under the law.

Oxfordshire's placing of school nurses in all secondary schools and close monitoring of missing persons episodes including during the school day with return interviews afterwards being a routine feature both also help to detect and deter further crimes and provide possible avenues for reporting by young people. But, we do need to be continually vigilant and unlike perhaps sometimes in the past young people must be believed.

I would want to see the same standards employed in Oxfordshire used across the Thames Valley.

More tardily I got this reply from Anthony Stansfeld, who is the current PCC for Thames Valley and the Conservative candidate


Dear Julia,

The individuals are alleged to have committed these crimes well before I became PCC. We are dealing with cases that goes back many years, and I am delighted that during my time as PCC past cases are now being brought to court.

The setting up of Multi Agency Safeguarding Hubs (MASH) during my time as PCC has addressed this problem that goes back many years. Also a considerable number of extra officers have been moved to counter this problem since I became PCC. Bringing people to court for these cases should be a cause for satisfaction, not criticism. It is giving the victims of these crimes the justice they deserve.

With best wishes,

Anthony.


Diary of a Nobody: Alexander Masters

The tediously leftie-queer-trannie-obsessed Guardian newspaper has published this long article about how a biographer called Alexander Masters pieced together the life of an unknown person who had discarded 148 diaries in a skip.
I only read this article because someone sent me a link to it, for some reason.
The diaries are so boring he might as well have left them in the skip. Seems the person who wrote them was a woman called Laura who for 25 years had a relationship with a person called "E.". Masters was surprised to find that this relationship was deeply abusive, damaging and cruel, and even more surprised to find that "E" was also a woman.


Laura, writer of the diaries found in a skip by Alexander Masters' friends, watches her biography being printed

The exciting "gay" lifestyle

What is so surprising about lesbians treating each other badly, suffering and enduring long-term misery? Nothing, but it's ironic considering they spend so much time denouncing the "oppressive" relationships women endure at the hands of men.
Mr Masters started out assuming, in politically-correct fashion, that a cruel, abusive lover MUST be a man.

I discovered “I”’s first name from her lover, whom she calls “E” in the diaries. He first crops up when “I” is 19 and has a temporary job at Cambridge public library, but their first meeting occurred five years earlier. He was her private piano teacher: kind, supportive, good enough (he said) to be a concert pianist, and grotesquely irresponsible. He allowed a young girl’s adulation to get out of hand. He is also spiteful, petty-minded and a prig. “I” reports hundreds of his sayings: “E said I am a silly ass”; “E said I am stupid”; “E said I am 14 years old [this written when she was 20]. I am not ripe enough yet”; “E said I was weak in every way.” Over the 25 years of their intense, abusive relationship, he demolished her confidence and ruined her ambitions. In the midst of his relentless attacks, he also gave away her name. “E said I look dreadful”; “E asked (moving a little from me), ‘Are you insane?’” “E said the epitaph on my grave stone will be: ‘Here lies Laura, who did nothing, went nowhere, was loved by nobody.’”

Then finally he stumbles on reality. The mental torture that ruined Laura's life and reduced her to a permanent depressive was done by another woman:

She writes long letters to “E”, and gets terse, pompous replies: “E said I am a weakling. E said there is no place for them in life, they ought to be hung up”; “E said she’s glad she’s not my parents.”
She’s glad? “E” is a woman? It turns out that E stands for Elsa.

To me, unsurprising.

However, Mr Masters seems to have learnt nothing from this long-drawn out exercise in pre-conceptions. Left-wing ideology has demonized men and heterosexuals so successfully that his brain is incapable of questioning it.

Now Will You Believe Me, Andrew?

I wrote to Andrew Smith, my Labour MP, several years ago warning him about the prospect of the NHS being privatised under EU competition laws. He dismissed what I said. I told him EU policy was to insist on a so-called free market (which usually means purchase by massive powerful multi-national corporations) and they intended to enforce this for the provision of all goods and services, which included health services.
He didn't believe me.
I told him there had been a legal case relating to this, and he still didn't believe me.  I think I have still got the letter somewhere where he denied it.
Now Lord Owen, formerly Dr David Owen of the Labour and SDP parties. has spoken out of the same subject. Perhaps Andrew Smith will finally believe it when he hears it from a former member of his own party, who is now a member of the fanatically pro-EU LibDem party, and who is also a medical doctor and a former UK Minister for Health. And guess what, it is even published in the rich lefties' garbage rag The Guardian

It would be too much to hope for an apology from Andrew Smith.

Brexit is necessary to protect NHS from TTIP, says David Owen

Former health secretary claims proposed trade deal between the US and the European Union could make any privatisation irreversible

The NHS will be at risk of further privatisation if Britain stays in the EU because of the major trade deal being negotiated with the US, David Owen will say on Wednesday.
Lord Owen, who was health secretary for Labour in the mid-1970s before co-founding the SDP, said it would be impossible to take the NHS back to its original purpose unless the UK votes to leave in the June referendum.
Speaking to the Guardian, Owen said the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and the US could put the NHS in “serious danger” unless there are more special protections to exclude the health service from the terms of the deal.
Under the clause of TTIP that most worries campaigners, US companies will be able to sue governments for pursuing policies that harm their business. A legal opinion commissioned by Unite argues the deal would mean privatisation of elements of the NHS could become irreversible for future governments that want to restore services to public ownership.
“The legal opinion is very clear that there are a myriad of dangers if health comes under the current TTIP system,” Owen said.
“The government could apply for an exclusion but even if we do that we are still left with the problem that the EU has gone more and more into the health service, because as more marketisation comes in there it becomes a greater justification for not treating it as an exception ... such as the insistence on putting more and more out to contract.”
His alarm at the idea of privatisation in the NHS is unlikely to be shared by some of his Vote Leave colleagues on the right. The remain campaign has claimed many leading Brexiteers “spent their political lives championing policies which would destroy the NHS as we know it”.
But in his speech, Owen is due to say: “We are agreed in Vote Leave that, whatever our political views on the present marketisation of the NHS, decisions on the NHS should for the future be for the UK parliament and devolved administrations to take. It should not be for the European commission nor the European parliament.”
He said leaving the EU was the only way to regain control over the NHS and the referendum was now wide open.

“We went through a market, insurance-based health system in the 1920s and 30s. I spent my childhood being told by my father what that was like and why he voted for the NHS in 1948,” Owen said. “All I am saying is I want to be able to vote for the essence of the NHS to come back if we have a government that is not a Conservative one and I would say even that could possibly happen in 2020 although it is obviously more likely to be a longer period.
“We have got no chance whatever of going back unless we get out. Barbara Castle and I disagreed in 1975. I thought the common market would leave the NHS alone but she turned out to be more perceptive than me.”
The Remain campaign replied that "independent experts" had shown Lord Owen to be wrong, but they did not name these "independent experts" or provide any links to their evidence.
