I am not a great one to go out to Pubs, our Young Judo Club has its own Bar so never found the need but over the last few months I have occasionally gone to various pubs for a drink with the rubbish that’s on TV on Saturdays one can understand why. The High Street Pubs seem full of youngsters, TV’s, Fruit Machines, with the youngsters shouting, swearing and just get as drunk as possible so not for me. My main problem is swearing I was brought up in a generation that did not allow men to swear in front of women or children, if you were in the company of men only swearing was considered OK although my brother see no need for it at all. If a women walked into a Bar the landlord would say “Lady in Bar” and the language would be moderated. Now the youngsters tell me I am old fashioned it is OK to use the foulest of language in conversation no matter where you are and as loud as you like! Our English teacher Mr Jarrett used to say back in the sixties Swearing was for people with a very low vocabulary, I also used think if swearing is used very little it would have more of an impact when used.
So what brought me on to this subject well some time ago I had a guy come into my Bar at the Judo Club and all he kept doing was using the F Word I asked him to stop because my wife was in the Bar his retort was “Who she think she is the Queen” I replied she did not think nothing of the kind but in my eyes she was and I suggested he leave his drink on the Bar and leave very quickly which he did. On Saturday I was sitting with my Brother and my wife in a nice new Bar just outside Sittingbourne it had a little piped music no TV no slot machines and you could have an actual conversation without shouting. The ambience was ruined when 4 chaps in their mid to late twenties came in and started using every swear word in the dictionary after 10 minutes my brother asked them in a polite manner to moderate their language this they did then came the sarcastic remarks one really amused me “surely its my human right to say what I want “ after a few moment s I got up and walked over to them saying we had been polite to them and would hope that they would precipitate which they did I am sure my size had nothing to do with the fact they agreed.

So it now seems that I am in the wrong because I may infringe some ones Human Rights if I ask them to stop being rude, vulgar and course. What a Country GB has become

Dear Editor
Below is an article on David Davies in which I say that the Government and EU have to much power as I wrote this I received an email from PAYPAL most people know that this is a system of safe payment over the internet

Dear Martin Clarke, This notice is a reminder. We are sending you this notice because you have received more than 650.00 GBP in total payments to your PayPal account. PayPal is required by law to comply with European Union Anti-Money Laundering regulations to collect information from customers when they receive more than the set limit in total payments

This account has been opened for two years how can spending £650 pounds over a two year period be even considered MONEY LAUNDERING? The EU have brought in laws where they can monitor what and where I spend my money and you wonder why people like me support David Davies stance


David Davies In my mind has made a bold decision to force an election on a matter of conscious; I refer to his stand about the state taking complete control of our lives. Although the 42 day detention was the straw that broke the camels back it is about much more, of the NU Labour use the excuse of Terrorism, but surely with all the high tech equipment and millions being spent on surveillance, the fact that a terrorist has been arrested and that by definition must means the Police have evidence, you do not 42 days? NO this 42 days is about you and me NOT terrorists it is about the Government National and Local keeping a check on us. Of course they will say it will only be terrorist who affected but what constitutes a Terrorist? At the moment it means militant Moslems but what of the future could it mean anyone who wants to see the collapse of the government or just general sedition? For example in European some members of the European Union are trying to make it an offence to campaign against the EU could I then be arrested and imprisoned for 42 days if I say we should withdraw fro the EU? Maybe not now with the EU dictatorship nothing is impossible you wait and see when they dismiss the Irish No Vote.
I like a lot people no longer believe anything this Government tells us they only time you know that there not lying is when they keep their mouths closed but in all honesty I have doubt about all politicians I feel David Davies has given me faith that at least one MP can keep to his ideals and I am pleased to say that our own candidate in Sittingbourne & Sheppey Gordon Henderson is a man of the same ilk. Surely the time has come for an MP to have a limited term of office say maximum 15 years this would prevent them making a career in politics where the main aim at present is to think of their pocket rather then the people they represent the same can be said of top civil servants whom seem to answerable to no one.

I have said it before we are in the process of having a Benevolent Dictatorship but a Dictatorship just the same

Campaign for an Independent Britain have launched a new campaign 'Time for Truth' to reveal the truth behind the lies of our politicians.
We've produced the first four of a new series of leaflets. They are
* Support for Nurses - or billions for Brussels? - on the link between Brussels directives and NHS cuts.
* Starve the World! - How EU policies DELIBERATELY keep food prices high - and cripple Third World farmers.
* Wanted - for the biggest con in history - How so-called EU 'grants' are just bribery with our own money!
* CLOSED - by order of Brussels - the DIRECT link between Brussels directives and Post Office closures.
Please help us get these leaflets out. People need to know what's happening and what we can do to stop it.
The leaflets can be viewed and ordered from:

I am a regular listener to the John Gaunt Show on Talk Sport Radio and most of what he says I agree with but over the last few months, as he has become more famous; his ego has gone out of control. He is a loud mouth and not frightened to say what he believes in something I admire in him but he will not give people who disagree with him any chance to put over their point of view before he starts shouting abuse at them and then cuts them off. This shouting has now extended to his staff who he continually insults. GB needs more John Gaunt’s who actually tell you what the British Public are saying rather then those Lefty Liberal elite who report what the British should be saying but Gaunty should stop the shouting and give those who have different views more of a say if he doesn’t his supporters will soon be giving him the heave ho.

Are you sick and tired of the Celebrity culture I know I am. The latest is Rooney’s Wedding, I am told he is a famous football player, which has been reported to cost £5 million. Rooney his Bride and all those attending this farce should hang their heads in shame, in world where people are starving, where tens of thousands have died because of natural disasters £5 million on wedding lasting three days? What he should have done was to have a lavish wedding in his home town costing say £100,000 (even that is a lot) the rest of the £5 million could then have been spent on some sort of charitable trust in his wife’s name, this would be a wedding present that would last for ever a continual reminder of their wedding day. If some silly celebrity magazine wants to spend millions on exclusive photo’s let them but then put the money into the trust. With some British workers barely taking home £200 a week Rooney’s wedding was OBSCENE

Is this women a coward

You and your readers know I am a regular contributor to your paper and my views are not always shared by other people, they in turn write in to oppose my views. This is good as it creates debate, which is how we make our democratic system work. What annoys me are those people who send anonymous letters, these cowards just want to let loose some vitriolic bile but do not have the Dear Editor
courage to put a name to their accusations which 99% cases are untrue.
Two cases recently come to mind I had one of these letters posted to me after you printed my letter on “Mary Whitehouse” I will quote the first two paragraphs “How dare you lecture people on obeying and respecting parents, drinking alcohol, punch ups and violence. You have no reason to feel smug at all and I am fed up with you preaching to everyone in your patronising letter to the EKG” I did not think I was lecturing, Smug according to the dictionary means complacent some thing I am not. The writer who is a woman then goes on to blame all her ills and misfortunes over an incident that happens years ago with one of my off spring the youngest would then have been 13 years old! Her letter would not have been printed because of it inaccurate and libellous content but instead being anonymous and vitriolic why not criticise the content of my letter putting her views forward.

The next letter concerned some sheds I built next to our Judo Club in East Street it seems someone did not like them so the Council made me pull them down, the same person then complained because the their was a mess, then the Council decided that two of the Flats that had been on the ground for many many years would need a Lawful Development certificate which in total came to over £1300 this took over a year to complete. Yet the only good thing to this saga was I asked for copies of the letters of complaint, these were given to me with the names and addresses of the complainants, who complaints were at best were total inaccuracies and at worst a deliberate pack of lies . Because of this I was allowed to correct all these inaccuracies to the council and my Certificate sailed through. This was a prime example of people trying to use anonymity to cause harm to some else pleasingly this backfired and their cowardly actions were found out.

To finalise being anonymous writer is an act of coward ness and they will eventually be unmasked

For those who been follwoing the Shed/Flat saga

Sheriff of Sittingbourne


He is a very tough Law enforcement Officer the email went on to say a lot more about especially his tough approach to those who break the law. My question why can not we in England vote in our Town Sheriff? Because lets be honest the Police service and the Judicial system have let us down why?
1) The Judiciary i.e. Courts are far too lenient with law breakers admittedly that is not all there own fault, the Government has been telling them how to administer sentencing. This is based mainly on finances “It is cheaper to let a criminal go free rather then have the expense of putting them in prison.
2) Senior Police Officers are more interested in Political correctness, sucking up to their political masters, climbing the greasy pole of promotion then catching real villains. Interestingly the enough the confidence in the Police Force oops sorry Police Service has collapsed since they introduced PC into their selection procedure i.e. preference were given to individual ethnic origin, sex and sexual orientation rather then the best individual for the job.
If we had the chance to vote a Sheriff into power he or she would have to be elected every 4 years they would be voted in on their record or things they propose. Now would not that be something really unique an ELECTION OFFICIAL listening to the people and doing what the people want, the idea could catch on and we would have a completely new system in this country we could call it DEMOCRACY from the Greek PEOPLE RULE

Ultimate Force

Have you been watching the Programme on ITV featuring the SAS called Ultimate Force, which I enjoyed except for the ridiculous idea that a women would be in an active SAS unit. I have never heard of a women being an active member of real life active SAS service unit if I am wrong please correct me.

The problem I have with TV we very easily take what we see as factual yet most programmes rely on the imagination of the writer, who in a lot of cases have there own agenda. Sadly to say if a writer continually basis his or her stories on their own bias there ideas will be eventualy be accepted by the public especially if it is a very popular programme. You must remember TV and Film are very powerful political tool used by a lot of unscrupulous people. If I need a car I would buy one from a car dealer I may enjoy the car but that doesn’t mean I trust the salesman, the same can be said of TV enjoy it but do not trust the writer or producer.
