ARTICLE: Was Guy Fawkes the Last Honest Man to Pass through Westminster?

Hat tip: http://www.westernspring.co.uk/was-guy-fawkes-the-last-good-man-to-pass-through-westminster/

Imagine a government that would deliberately take millions away from the budget meant to educate its own nation’s children, while at the time use billions to send foreign aid to other nations who don’t need it?

That would be nothing less than treason. You cannot imagine any sane government doing such a thing. Think of, for example, China, or Japan, deliberately depriving its own people of an education while giving money to Korea? It just wouldn’t happen, because the Chinese and the Japanese would—rightly—regard that as nothing less than treason.

Of course, you guessed it: Britain’s House of Treason down by the banks of the old river, has done precisely that—and no-one seems to know or care.

The Tory-Lib-Dem-Labour party—because they are just all the same party—is busy with much-vaunted “budget cuts” to “save the economy” (after they and their big business bank cronies screwed it over in the first place) and one of the first cuts to be announced was in the education arena.

Any parent with university-age going children is well aware that uni fees have now rocketed from a manageable amount just two or three years ago, to an impossible £9,000 per year—and that is just for the tutoring fees, never mind books, resources, living allowances, residence and so on.

Even those students “lucky” enough to get loans, start off their working lives with tens of thousands of pounds of debt—an impossible burden which—even more importantly—makes starting a family next to impossible.

The nuts and bolts of the process are as follows: England’s university budgets were cut by £449 million in 2010, with similar cuts being added each following year. This means that over £1.3 billion has been cut in the last three years, and there is no end yet in sight. By the end of 2014, the total uni education budget cut will be cut by nearly £4 billion.

In practical terms, this means that the universities have had at least 6,000 fewer places each academic year.

In addition, research funding has been frozen and the uni buildings budget cut by 15 percent.

At the same time, the Government has announced that taxpayers will hand over £50.8 billion in foreign aid to the Third World by 2014. This translates to 61 percent of the total “spending review” cuts announced by the Government.

According to a press release issued by the Department for International Development (DFID), the total foreign aid budget will reach the targeted 0.7 percent of Gross National Income (GNI) by 2013.

This would mean a yearly spend of £12.6 billion, the DFID said.

This increased spending, the DFID said, is “in line with the UK’s international commitments to help those living in extreme poverty in our world. Over the course of the Spending Review period, the Department for International Development will increase resource spending by 35 percent in real terms, and increase capital spending by 20 percent in real terms.”

This means that the foreign aid budget was £8.4 billion in 2010, £8.7 billion in 2011, £9.1 billion in 2012, and will be £12.0 billion in 2013, and £12.6 billion in 2014—totalling £50.8 billion by the end of 2014.

So there you have it: cut the education budget by £4 billion, but boost the foreign aid budget by £50 billion.

Who would dare call it treason?  I for one, and I am increasingly becoming convinced that the last honest man to pass through the halls of Westminster was indeed Guy Fawkes.

(2012) Conservative Cllr. Sara Cliff -RESIGNS AFTER HOLDING ELECTORATE IN CONTEMPT

A Lincolnshire county councillor who lives in Cambridgeshire has resigned following criticism about her attendance record.

Sara Cliff came under scrutiny when it was reported she had claimed £23,000 in allowances despite attending 19 meetings from a possible 52.

In a statement, she explained she was seriously ill for six months in 2010 which had affected her attendance.

She blamed “hostility in the press” for her decision not to continue.

Conservative Ms Cliff represented Lincoln East ward on Lincolnshire County Council. The ward includes the deprived Monks Road and Tower Estate areas.

She was elected in May 2009 but moved to Soham, Cambridgeshire, last July in her role as a Methodist minister.

Ms Cliff said: “I do feel that I have been misrepresented in the media and people will not be aware that I was seriously ill for six months in 2010 which impacted on the attendance record as reported.

ARTICLE: Tories use taxpayers’ money for pro-Turkey propaganda.

Tories use taxpayers’ money for pro-Turkey propaganda. Nick Griffin MEP blows the whistle on the latest double-dealing from Cameron’s treacherous tax-eaters.

The Conservative-dominated European Conservatives and Reformists Group within the European Parliament has this week used part of its taxpayer-provided budget to fund an exhibition on “religious and cultural diversity in Turkey.

The display, in the heart of the EU’s huge complex in Brussels, is put on in collaboration with the Yunus Emre Institute, a well-funded Turkish body whose job is to spread Turkish cultural influence back into countries which used to be ruled by the Turkish Sultanate but which won their independence in the various wars of liberation against that medieval tyranny.

The exhibition, which is entitled Sharing the Sunlight, portrays Muslims, Christians and Jews living as equal citizens and good friends and neighbours in a picture-postcard Turkey.

Much is made of the restoration of several churches and synagogues at the expense of the Turkish state. No mention is made, however, of the continued wanton destruction of churches and monasteries in Turkish-occupied Cyprus. Since that island still has a majority Greek Christian population, the need for cultural/religious/ethnic cleansing in order to advance Islam is still there.

In Turkey, by contrast, centuries of persecution have so reduced non-Muslim communities that they are irrelevant and a few of their buildings can be restored for the tourists and in order to fool EU liberals into not noticing the steady Islamisation of the secular Turkey created by Kemal Ataturk.

They are there to solve the UK’s pressing problems, but it seems MPs need some help too. The recent arrest of a Labour MP after a late-night brawl in the House of Commons bar, is just the latest in a string of alcohol fuelled scandals. RT’s Laura Smith reports on how some Parliamentarians are said to be drinking their way through life at Westminster.

(2012) Conservative Cllr. Roger Keeble -MISREPRESENTATION OF CONSTITUENTS

A PAIR of Brentwood councillors have failed to register a single problem on behalf of the people who voted for them since May last year.

Tory Alan Braid and independent Roger Keeble, elected to represent close to 3,500 people each in both Hutton Central and Tipps Cross respectively, have never recorded an inquiry through the internet-based Members’ Portal they were ordered to use in 2010.

The news that Messrs Braid and Keeble are just two of 15 elected representatives to have logged less than one inquiry per month with council officers will no doubt anger taxpayers who collectively pay £288,000 a year for councillors’ allowances.
