  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then




    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

Now the school run is a ‘human right’ !

Posted by Big John on February 7, 2012

If ever you wanted an example of ‘bonkers’ Britain, here it is !

Yes, a man who would happily blow us all to bits, is being allowed to walk our streets by some idiot of a British judge, who is the president of the UK’s Special Immigration Appeals Commission and has ruled that the Islamist cleric should be freed within days, on strict bail conditions, because his deportation to Jordan had been blocked by the European Court of Human Rights.

Just what do you have to do to get deported from this country ? .. OK .. I know that many of our unwanted ‘guests’ do a runner before they can be sent back to their homelands, and that foreign offenders are winning more than 60% of ‘human rights’ appeals to stay under “the right to a family life”. Blimey ! .. Recently, it was claimed, that one bloke was allowed to stay here because he had a cat, but should we really allow Al-Qaeda’s number one fanatic in Europe out of prison because he needs to walk his daughter to school ?

Walk ! .. Did I say walk ? .. Abu Qatada, who’s wife and family live for free in a large house in London, has already cost taxpayers bloody ‘millions’ in benefits and legal fees, so I’m sure he will be entitled to claim …

… for taxi fare !

  1. I think that a majority of British citizens (including MPs) would agree that this man is a threat and a menace and ought not to be allowed his freedom. However, the law is the law and the law apparently provides for him to be freed in the particular circumstances in which he finds himself. This is a dilemma but it is not an example of stupidity or bungling authority. It is simply a case where the law, designed to protect the honest and the innocent, happens to work in favour of the guilty. It is not a unique case, though a serious one. Let’s hope that, despite the European ruling, it will soon be possible to extradite this man – legally and with due process.

    We understand full well the irony of people using the law to undermine the law. However, if we were to give in and act unlawfully, then we would be doing their work for them and they would be quick to take advantage.

    I’m pretty sure that every step this man takes in the public space will be followed and supervised by the police and that at the least sign of illegal behaviour he will be put back in jail.

    The law is an ass. We have two specimens in Indian jails, one who has been condemned to death and the other provided with legal assistance so that he can have biriyani everyday in jail and go up to our supreme court.
