My project is finished - huzzah!
As a result, I am in an unconscionably good mood this morning, which no doubt someone will try to puncture within the next five minutes.
No matter. I'm enjoying it while it lasts.
There have been some very interesting and comment worthy bits and pieces floating about over the past few days, which the project pushed to one side.
It now seems that the maximum sentence in Scotland for abduction, robbery and male on male sexual assault is five years
, with the pervert serving them, Cyrus Winton
, taking home this week's Dorrian Award for Judicial Leniency in Scotland
Godd wishes are in order to Dennis Mangan, who is currently in the process of incorporating Mangan Capital Management
. My friend and team-mate, whose appearance of curmudgeonry masks a very warm, friendly nature and a great deal of courage, is one of the nicest guys on the web; may this venture, the realisation of a long-held ambition, be as successful as he wishes it to be.
And D should know he's welcome to post here whenever he wishes.
His irritation at Sonoma County's pandering to illegal aliens
, presumably at the expense of Sonoma County residents, is perfectly understandable, given that the illegal situation in Maywood, California has become so bad
that even the Daily Telegraph, not usually noted for the robustness of its support of the rule of law where immigration is concerned
, has noticed.
Maywood is a 'sanctuary city'. I have a good idea for how to treat with politicians who declare their cities 'sanctuaries'; they deserve sanctuary themselves.
They can find it in any available penitentiary.
Maggie Gallagher recently asked for 'some truth on immigration'
. The official abandonment of the rule of law would be a good place to start.
But the grizzled restrictionist is always hunting for examples of immigrationist cant; such as this classic
from Cafe Hayek.
It's laugh a minute stuff.
However, it seems that after Lin Liang Ren killed 21 people
, the Snakeheads decided to turn their attention to the sex trade instead
The Immigrant Calling For Easier Immigration Award Of The Week award goes to Simon Wong, of the Hondo Supermarket in Liverpool -
"We are hard working people, but today we have too many bad things happening...All this can be very damaging to our community, because people cannot find work - how are you expecting they find work through the legal channel? "As employers, we would like to help them but we cannot employ those people. Restaurants badly need people but they can't get people to work. It is bad for the business, bad for the country, it is no good for nobody, except it makes the illegal workers flourish".
Wong should perhaps take heart from the example given by Anthony Miranda of Frankie & Benny's in Glasgow - if you don't find local workers up to the standard you require, hire Poles instead
And we await news of the bankruptcy of one, other or both of David Anthony Eden Snr. and David Anthony Eden Jnr. with interest, seeing as they have to pay their own legal costs for their involvement in this affair
And Stephen Roach reports on the growing sense of frustration at the failure of Americans to kowtow being felt by the biggest Snakeheads of them all
It seems that the Vice-President of the United States might have a hotel rider to shame a rock star
- and a first ever tip of the hat to a blogger called Richard Melville Hall
Justin Raimondo cites the importance of culture
, while Pat Buchanan lets rip on the neos currently abandoning ship
, whilst Tom Engelhardt conducts a fascinating inetrview with Chalmers Johnson
With Bob Tyrrell going ga-ga for Tony Blair
, it's perhaps not surprising that PCR should ask what's become of some Americans
Rod Liddle very pertinently asks what the Home Office is for
- a pressing issue, given that in a country whose borders are unprotected, whose probation service is in chaos and whose government is seeking to introduce biometric ID cards, the Home Secretary took a time out last week to express his opposition to the teaching of creationism
B & Q seems to be doing its bit to fast-track the displacement of British decorators.
As an attack on Iran now seems unlikely, I had noted previously that the neos were lining up the Libyans as substitutes
It seems they may also have others in their sights.It's the Russians...gulp...Somebody PLEASE give Kathryn Jean Lopez a break
? OK, so NRO published a plagiarist - but presumably they did do in good faith. Mea culpa heard. Now gedovahit...
I mean, it's not as if they don't have other things to worry about. Vic Hanson's latest column is just so 2003
, while Nina Shea warns of the danger of Sharia law in Afghanistan
- a danger I noticed on; when was it again?
Oh, yes. It was January 7 2004
Those all-singing, all-dancing peace funksters Kember and the Kumbayas
have apparently refused to co-operate with the intelligence authorities
who put themselves on the line to rescue their dilettante, intellectually decadent backsides.
Kember would sing like a canary if the government threatened to withhold his pension...
It seems that the stress of life as a Kurdish migrant in Scotland caused Azu Ali to bottle Andrew Mitchell
This is Ali's second period of imprisonment for assault in Scotland. He is 24 years old.
Finally, I received some very kind words from Brian Barder yesterday
. Brian is a gentleman of the old school, and I wish I had a fraction of his good grace.
