Kevin Rudd should be PM of GB

I have seen this article several times but it is well worth repeating, wouldn't it be marvelous if we had a Prime Minister like Rudd SOME HOPE

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.

Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians'. 'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'. 'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!' 'Most Australians believe in God.

This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.' 'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.' 'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.' 'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

I am not into FaceBook etc because I find them somewhat frivolous (not interested in what you had for breakfast and if you slept well) but have joined TWITTER (VALMARCLARKE) With twitter you can only post a sentence which I can use to direct people to what I want them to know, much more of a business type of Social Networking. Those who are interested in Serious Networking should join

For over 15 years I have been complaining about Cyclists riding on the pavement, riding the wrong way up one way street, ignoring traffic lights etc but over the years I have given up telling people to get of the pavement. Why do they ride on the pavement and ignore most of the traffic laws? It seems once somebody mounts a bicycle they become a rebel to the establishment. There main excuse is that the roads are too dangerous and pavements are safer, for whom? Certainly not the pedestrian, I said many years ago people would get injured by these cyclists. There have been reports of fatalities and in the paper last week a 52 year old woman was knocked over by 17 year old cyclists as she came out of a Supermarket she is in a critical condition. This was compounded when a leading Cycle Experts stated that cyclists should never be prosecuted for being involved in accident with a car, as the car driver would always be at fault, can I say what sort of idiot statement is that. I would be more tolerant if the those cyclists had manners, the path outside my house is only wide enough for two people yet we still have cyclists riding at very high speeds although it is mainly school kids and the worst time being finish of school, we still have adults the worst are those kitted out in complete cycle regalia occasionally you will get a cyclist who see there are people walking on the pavement and they will wait till everyone passes or get of an walk. Although they should not be on the pavement at least they are thinking of other people. The Police as per usual do not want to know and more interested in arresting people for using racist or homophobic language, so what can we do? Nothing. Surely the time has come for Cycles to Road taxed, Insured and MOT like they do in other countries especially as the amount of Cycle Lanes being installed is becoming a drain on public finance and before you say that Car Lover Clarke I do own a cycle.
Cycles are, in law, carriages (as a consequence of the Taylor v Goodwin judgment in 1879) and should be on the road not pavement.

I have always been perplexed by the Honours system, to me it supposed to represent an award for some outstanding achievement but when you really evaluate it is not true e.g.
A Private Secretary to a Government Minister seem to always get a knighthood for his services, yet all he has done is worked for the same group for ex amount of years and was paid very well in the process, working on that parameter every Nurse, Doctor, Teacher, Policeman, Fireman should get a Knighthood and they are not paid as much.
Then we get the Odd ball ones the school secretary who has worked at a school for 10 years, a Lollipop man etc if they are worthy of an OBE/MBE if they why not many others.
The Pop Star who spends his life on drink, Drugs etc but because he or she has made a couple of popular records is awarded a gong
Every Athlete from the Olympics who wins a medal gets a gong for winning surely that is what they train for? If it is for the effort they put in for winning, well what about the others who trains as hard but did not get a medal.
You may ask why do I now bring this subject up well a friend of mine has recently suffered a Stroke, which I was told was life threatening, thank God it was not and hopefully he will make a full recovery.
My Friend is Sittingbourne Man Ron Reeves most probably the greatest Powerlifting Coach this Country has had; he was British Team Coach for many years and trained countless World Champions. I first stared training with Ron when I was 21 in 1971, I had ambitions to become a World Class athlete and I did to some degree winning World Masters Judo title, reserve for 1980 Olympics, World Jiu Jitsu silver, 3 World Sombo Silvers, it was Ron who spent time with me developing my explosive strength introducing me to Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting I have some pride in that I won SE England tittles in both disciplines. Ron used have a Gym behind the George Pub, he then had a Hall at our Martial Arts Centre in East Street from there he moved to Periwinkle in Milton. Sadly this Gym closed some years ago Financial unviable, Nobbys Gym has kept Power and Olympic lifting alive but without Ron it is not the same.
Not only had Ron trained countless World Champions but also trained many local people, he brought Regional, National and International Tournament to the Town, he spent over 40 years of his life teaching and investing money into a sport he loved. Ron was 73 this week when he gets better I expect he will go back to his job as a Security Guard, no lavish pension for Ron no matter what he has done.

Now there a person I think deserves an award what do you think

My Trip to Ireland a Plastic Paddy

Our Holiday in Ireland September 2009
An Irish friend of mine called me a plastic paddy because I like Irish music, I often wondered what he meant by this well since my travels to St Mullen’s in County Callow I think I know what he means. My Grandfather on my father’s side was Irish he died when I was 15 years old, was a rather secretive man. What I know was 6ft 18 stone was a member of the Dublin Brigade (Police) his first wife died, his two son’s from that union he left in Ireland never to see them again. Within a year he married my Grandmother Jessica Parker. The reason why I tell you this is because to me the Irish have always had this air of mysticism, devoutly Catholic but would kill a protestant in the name of religion and the same must be said of the protestants and of course you would have the general conception of red headed women and men playing folk music where ever they go, driving their pony and trap, completely unworldly a peasant friendly people.
Ho w wrong I was! Ireland is a beautiful place its countryside is a joy to be seen not a lot different from parts of England and Scotland but just seems more of it and less people. Ireland is like most European countries having the same type of stores, cars etc, you can see there has been a boom as you see countless new houses being built in the Country and not small ones, most cars are relative new.
Yet there are differences on the plus side the people are very friendly and not as aggressive as people in England, if you enter a pub there’s a smile not a scowl Let me give you an example on the Sunday we went to a local pub where there was live music we got talking to some locals and they bought us drinks all night, there is very little swearing and when you did hear the odd F word it didn’t have the same resonance as England because the Irish brogue is softer. Youngsters are better behaved in Town Centre’s, I did not see any graffiti and the Ladies are slimmer, dressed as attractive females unlike a lot of English girls who are porkers dressed as trollops (not all I might add) plus you do not see a vast cascade of young unmarried mother mothers. There is still a great sense of community something missing in England.
On the downside is the price of goods are exorbitant a bottle of whisky which cost £12 in England would cost £24 (27 Euro) in Ireland, a set Chinese meal for 2 £50 in England £30 everything is very expensive, with VAT at 21% who can wonder at it. Road signs and signs to places of interest are nearly non existence and everyone drives like a racing driver. For some years the European Union was good to Ireland but not now its law are slowly changing Ireland and changing the character of its people and these are not my words they are the words of Irishman, like the English and other European countries they are being led by politicians who no longer consider the wish of the people as sacrosanct but consider them selves first. Where ever you go the EU is seen as self-serving and autocratic, a benevolent Dictatorship but a dictatorship just the same.
I enjoyed our trip to Ireland would I go again NOT at the moment the prices did not offer value for money, in the future YES but I would try to go with someone who knew the area we were staying in .

Geert Wilders Dutch MP

'In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?'Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem USA.

Dear friends,Thank you very much for inviting me.I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem.The Europe you know is changing.You have probably seen the landmarks.. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.. It is the world of the parallel society created by?Muslim mass-migration.All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden.In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils.. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.In England Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan.Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays.The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept Sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and TurkeyMuslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators 'settlers'.. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies, they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored. IThe second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is Sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a danger greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

Conservatives suck up to Gays

With all the problems we have this country with this terrible Government what do the Conservative Party Do?

Yes redesign the Conservative Logo to incorporate the Rainbows Colours of the Militant Gay Movement and give them a Concert. What is a matter with the Major Political Parties they fall over backwards to appease the Homosexual Lobby yet they only account for 5% of the population. I expect their are more Fisherman then there are Homosexuals. Maybe there is a higher population of Homosexuals in Politics, media and entertainment, which leads them to think the percentage is much higher. Once again I say why are a minority group getting more benefits from the Government supported by the Conservatives and Libdems ?

Can not say I have a lot of faith in David Cameron at the moment

Robin Williams speaks

Another one of those interesting Circulations

HE MADE THIS SPEECH IN NEW YORK . The Plan!?Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says 'I love New York ' in Arabic.You gotta love Robin Williams..........Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan.
What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)'I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.'
1) 'The US /UK? Canada, AUSTRALIA will apologize to the world for our 'interference' in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again..
2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East , and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.
3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are from. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.
4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.
5) No foreign 'students' over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a 'D' and it's back home baby.
6) The US /UK Canada, Australia will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while
7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)
8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not 'interfere.' They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.
9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.
10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us 'Ugly Americans' any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH..learn it....or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan? 'The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' ' If you agree with the above, forward it to friends...If not, and I would be amazed if you DELETED it!!

Following the last article I sent this to the local press be interesting to see if it is printed

Dear Editor

Over the last few years I have lost confidence in all politicians, people in authority our justice system, the independence of our press i.e. practically all our established institutions. It seems most of them are corrupt or inefficient or both, they consider the public/voters as units that can be used and abused. So it came as a pleasant shock when I received an email which is circulating at the moment concerning the new Mayor of Doncaster Peter Davies (see full article below)
Mayor Davies has come up with some radical changes:
1) He has taken a £43,000 pay cut
2) He closed the Councils Newspaper for “peddling politics on the rates”
3) He has plans to cut the City Councillors from 63 to 21 saving £800,000
4) He has with drawn Doncaster Local Government Information Unit saving £200,000
5) Got rid of his Chauffer driven car
6) Come out of twinning organisation which he considers just binges at the Council expense
7) 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.

Here is a man that will make a difference. Someone the people can have faith in we need more like him, people who have not been contaminated by present regimes, ask this question? How many of the above are Swale Borough Council and Kent County Council involved in?

Yours Faithfully
