He shouldn’t have even been allowed in the country, but now the long-suffering British taxpayer will have to cough up once again, as his ‘human rights’ have been breached. Absurd Britannia at its finest:
A banned extremist who made a mockery of Britain’s border controls is now likely to pocket £5,000 in compensation because immigration officials could not speak his language.
The High Court ruled yesterday that Sheikh Raed Salah, described as a ‘virulent anti-Semite’ in the Commons, could claim compensation for unlawful detention by immigration officers.
They had seized the pro-Palestine hardliner – who should never have been allowed into Britain in the first place – to have him deported. But immigration staff failed to explain to him ‘in a language he could understand’ precisely why he was being detained – a technical breach of the rules. Read the rest of this entry »
But who’ll protect us from Hillary Clinton?:
Twenty-nine countries from around the world, plus the European Union, on Thursday launched a new multilateral organisation dedicated to fighting terrorism.
The new group will become “a counterterrorism network that is as nimble and adaptive as our adversaries,” US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at the inaugural meeting of the Global Counterterrorism Forum, or GCTF.
“Let us pledge to learn as much as we can from one another,” she said at the meeting in a New York hotel on the margins of this week’s United Nations General Assembly.
The United States and Turkey will be the initial co-chairs of the group’s coordinating committee.
Major nations from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe are members of the group, which includes leading Muslim nations like Egypt and Pakistan as well as emerging economic powers like China. Read the rest of this entry »
The murderers of the Fogel family, who slaughtered both parents and three of their children in their beds in Itamar, Israel in March this year, will – like all other Palestinian terrorists – receive full salaries from the Palestinian Authority backdated from the day of their arrest. And you’ll be paying (Warning: extremely graphic and upsetting images – but watch them anyway).
The Palestinian Media Watch Foundation presented a report to the British Parliament this week, showing that a large proportion of aid given by the UK and other developed nations goes towards paying generous monthly salaries for Islamic terrorists in Israeli Prisons.
In addition, generous payments are also paid to the families of ‘martyrs’ – suicide bombers and those killed in action by the Israeli Defence Force.
In 2010, according to PA news reports, Britain contributed £90 million to the PA’s general budget. Britain has committed to continue its contributions to the PA with £86 million per year until 2015. Read the rest of this entry »
No. Really. They actually do. More of your taxpayer money wasted on utterly EU-seless job creation:
It must rank as one of the most unusual recruitment adverts ever placed, even by the standards of the European Union: the search is on for a “pirate cultural adviser” to help naval commanders understand the foes they face along the coast of Africa.
The right candidate – who must have knowledge of the “business model and modus operandi” of pirates in the Indian Ocean – will be asked to teach officers of the EU navies protecting shipping in one of the world’s busiest waterways how best to tackle the growing threat.
Some 400 sailors are currently held captive, with pirate gangs earning tens of millions of dollars a year in ransoms. The job is expected to include advising naval commanders on pirates’ religious practices and their habit of chewing qhat, an amphetamine-filled plant which renders users hyperactive.
But swashbuckling Long John Silver types with a knowledge of pirate lore may be disappointed: the post is expected to be filled by an ex-military figure with expertise in shipping, insurance and ransom negotiations. And rather than scouring the taverns of Bristol or Penzance for likely talent, the commanders have contented themselves with placing the advertisement on the website for EU Navfor, the European antipiracy task force based at the Nato HQ in Northwood, London.
“The job title may sound ambiguous, but what we are really looking for here is someone who can help us know the enemy better,” said Commander Harry Harrison, a spokesman for EU Navfor. “The intention is to seek advice on the Somali pirates’ methodology and tactics, which are constantly evolving.”
We have kindly offered our consultancy services to the the EU on their requirement for this project. Mindful of the vast financial waste created by this useless supranational body, we even waived our fee.

Anyone who fails to follow the line that Islam is a peace-loving religion is hauled into his office for re-education,’ Anonymous RAF Officer
The head of studies at the Royal Air Force pilot training college is a convert to Islam who has criticised Nato air strikes on Libya in a Muslim magazine.
Dr Joel Hayward is dean of the college at Cranwell, the RAF’s equivalent of Sandhurst, and has taught many of the pilots spearheading the military operation against Colonel Gaddafi.
But, to the dismay of defence chiefs, he has cast doubt on the widely held belief that the Nato actions averted the mass killing of civilians in Benghazi. He also warned against the RAF becoming ‘the air corps of a rebel army’.
Dr Hayward has previously expressed remorse after appearing to claim that far fewer Jews were killed by the Nazis than generally thought and that the gas chambers of the Holocaust were British propaganda. Read the rest of this entry »
