Maybe there is hope for Britain

Sorry I have not kept up with the blog have been away at the Annual Martial Arts Camp I organise every year, found this in my inbox.

Maybe there is hope for Britain:
A maverick mayor elected after promising to slash council spending, clear the streets of yobs and ditch politically correct services is the torchbearer for how towns should be run. On his first morning as Mayor of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, Peter Davies cut his salary from £73,000 to £30,000 then closed the council’s newspaper for "peddling politics on the rates". Now three weeks into his job, Mr Davies is pressing ahead with plans he hopes will see the number of town councillors cut from 63 to just 21, saving taxpayers £800,000. Mr Davies said: "If 100 senators can run the United States of America, I can’t see how 63 councillors are needed to run Doncaster". He has withdrawn Doncaster from the Local Government Association and the Local Government Information Unit, saving another £200,000. Mr Davies said, "They are just talking shops". "Doncaster is in for some serious un-twinning. We are twinned with probably nine other cities around the world and they are just for people to fly off and have a binge at the council’s expense". The mayor’s chauffeur-driven car has also been axed by Mr Davies and the driver given another job. Mr Davies, born and bred in Doncaster, swept to power in the May election with 24,244 votes as a candidate for the English Democrats, a party that wants tight immigration curbs, an English Parliament and a law forcing every public building to fly the flag of St. George. He has promised to end council funding for Doncaster’s International Women’s Day, Black History Month and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month. He said, "Politicians have got completely out of touch with what people want. "We need to cut costs. I want to pass on some savings I make in reduced taxes and use the rest for things we really need, like improved children’s services". Mr Davies has received messages from well wishers across the country and abroad as news of his no-nonsense approach spreads.

Greedy Employers

I have to laugh when people say that our benefit system is to generous it maybe for a family and bogus invalidity claimants but for a single man it is not One of my tenants has been unemployed for two years and NO he can not get a job I know because I have written countless references for him. He gets his rent and Council tax paid by the council, his food electric, water gas, clothes etc he pays for out of his £65 a week unemployment benefit on occasions I have had to give him food. The real culprits are British Employers who hire foreign labour with excuses they have no one here trained WELL Train them he cannot be that hard to train someone to pick strawberries, stack shelves or drive a Fork Lift. These employers would rather see their own country man starve then lose profit


Local Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Gordon Henderson, has written to the Environment Agency and urged them to review the way in which they regulate the way that waste-paper sludge and sewage sludge is used for agricultural purposes.

Mr Henderson’ s action follows hundreds of complaints about foul and objectionable smells coming from fields in different parts of the constituency, including Bredgar, Iwade and Leysdown.

Mr Henderson said:

‘We are told that using this sludge as fertiliser is a wide-spread practice that is monitored and regulated by the Environment Agency.

‘If this is true, then all I can say is that the Environment Agency is not making a very good job of ensuring that the sludge does not have an impact on the quality of life of those residents and businesses who are affected by its use.

‘The stench from the fields is quite repulsive and although it only lingers for a relatively short time, one day of the obnoxious smell is a day too long.

‘I have written to the Environment Agency and asked them to review the way they regulate the use of sludge. If they are going to allow the continued use of the sludge then the Agency should insist that it is treated in a way that removes the worst of the smell.

‘Meanwhile, I would urge anybody who is affected by these smells to contact the Environment Agency direct to complain. The more people who complain, the more likely we are to see action.’

Who needs even more politicians

Local Tory candidate, Gordon Henderson, has attacked Labour plans for a new tier of regional politicians and a regional levy on council tax.

It had been thought that the Government had abandoned its plans for regional assemblies in the face of widespread opposition. However, a government minister has made clear that the assemblies are back on the political agenda.

Mr Henderson said:

‘The new Minister for Regional Government has made it clear that she intends to champion John Prescott’s lost cause of an elected regional assembly for the South East.

“The Government doesn’t seem to have grasped that we need fewer politicians, not more. The way they keep trying to resurrect these unwanted assemblies is a bit like the awakening of the living dead.

“What we need is a Conservative Government to drive a stake through the heart of regional government and kill it off once and for all!”

Mr Henderson’s comments follow news that:-

· Elected regional assemblies are back on Ministers’ agenda: Rosie Winterton is the new Minister for ‘Regional Economic Coordination’. She worked closely with John Prescott on his plans for regional assemblies. In a recent Ministerial keynote speech on regional government, Ms Winterton said she would not let elected regional government “slip off the agenda”, “I have always been in favour of regional government”, it is “the obvious answer” and “we will come back to it”.

· Labour ignore ‘no’ vote to regional government: Elected regional assemblies had been killed off when the public overwhelmingly rejected regional government in the 2004 North East referendum. Yet the unelected regional assemblies still exist, but have merely changed their brass plaques, and are morphing into an even more convoluted structure of unelected Regional Development Agencies and unelected Regional Leaders Forums. New ‘Integrated Regional Strategies’ are to be imposed over the head of (name of local council).

· New regional politicians to be bankrolled by regional council tax: Under Labour’s blueprint, regional assemblies will need a new tier of regional politicians and regional elections. The elected assemblies will be funded by a regional levy on council tax, like the Greater London Authority. The assemblies would be able to “set a higher precept within the region to fund additional spending”. In London, the regional tier of government now costs £310 a year on Band D bills.


I have to look in amazement when I read the articles in newspapers where the British Government are supposed to be involved in torture through their secret service. I refer of course to Binyam Mohamed while he was being held incommunicado in Pakistan. He maintains he was tortured by the British Secret Service while in Pakistan yet he was held in incommunicado (deprived of Communication) how did he know he was in Pakistan? He was in Pakistan with a false passport associating with members of the Taliban and was arrested and kept Guantánamo Bay for many years where he claims he was tortured by the yanks and deprived of Food, if you see photos of him arriving in the UK he looked in perfect health.
So here we have man who associates with terrorists, lies about his name age and country of origin, who is not even a UK Subject, someone who was refused political asylum, some one who was arrested by the Americans not the British being given Tax payer money to sue the British Government for something he can not prove. Now the Human Rights pariahs have jumped on the bandwagon in comes all those Millionaire Lawyers paid for by the tax payer who will milk the system. Binyam Mohamed should be sent back to Ethiopia where he came from and he should be made to pay back all the money he conned the British Tax payer out of.

Coach accused

Top Martial Arts Coach Accused
A Top British Martial Arts Coach has been accused of “Inappropriate Behaviour” and has been suspended by his governing body and told not to visit his own club, yet this Coach has told me he has not been informed of what the accusation is or who has accused him. The governing body has informed the local Police who are investigating him and they in turn have not told him of the accusation etc, now if the Coach is telling me the truth then this can open a real can of worms.
1) Surely it is the right of every Englishman to be able to face his accuser and their accusation
2) Is a man not innocent till proven guilty
As for us Judo and Sports Coaches if the above is true anyone of us can be accused by some one who has a grudge against us, which could wreck of career, our private life and cause us mental anguish. Child Protection has become paramount in sport and rightly so but it is fast becoming Monster which will extinguish Children Sport altogether. No longer is a Scout Master, Cub Mistress a Junior Judo/Sports Coach looked upon with respect for giving up their time to work and help with children our obsession with Child Protection has made the public look with distain upon this group of well meaning people. WHY DO THEY WANT TO BE WITH CHILDREN? That is the question asked ARE THEY NORMAL is the next one soon no one will want to supervise Children in fact the Ultimate Child Protection is not to let any Adult teach children
Now before you say Martin is over reacting let me give example at what happened at our club several years ago.
One of our Karate Instructors was accused of touching a young teenager inappropriately, the father contacted me and wanted me to deal with the matter which I presume he meant sack the Coach, this I reused to do and told him if was 100% sure of facts he must contact the Police which he subsequently done. I immediately contacted the Coach and told him of the accusation which he denied, I then explained that I would get a meeting of all other Coaches and decide what we would do. All the coaches agreed that the charges brought by the Girl were so outlandish (The assault supposedly took part in front of the whole class yet no one saw the incident) so we decided to allow him to Coach but supervised by one of the other Coaches. His ordeal lasted a Year at the end of 12 months the Police said there was nothing answers for! Was there an apology from the Girl, parent or police NO only a parting word from a Women PC “you got away with it this time?” The Instructor is no longer with us dying in tragic circumstances.
Now if the same happened today we would have no option but to suspend him and after the result of a year’s investigation with the Karate Instructor subsequently being proved innocent
1) He would be considered a pervert
2) The Club would have to close and 50 children would no longer have a club to go to
3) All the clubs coaches would be stigmatises (No smoke without fire) coaches would feel obliged to leave and club would have to close which had been in existence for 50 years. For what maybe something as stupid as the Coaches daughter getting a higher grade
