Islamic schooling in the UK

February 21, 2007

Hi Grit

Your mention of Islamic matters reminded me of what is going on in education over here. There is an organisation here called the “Muslim Council,” whose task it is to see to the needs of their people who have immigrated to this country or were born here. Of itself, I have no objection to such an organisation. However, I do get very irate when organisations of this nature try to destroy our heritage and culture.

The latest example of this is the report that this council has just put together a report, which apparently they are going to present to the government. This report outlines ways in which they feel that “un-islamic” activity and behaviour should be eliminated from school teaching and other activities. I personally find such action insulting, primarily because if the roles were reversed and we were living in their country, we would not be expected, or even allowed to deign to interfere with their religious and cultural traditions. Whatever happened to the concept of “respecting your hosts?” To me this is taking human rights and political correctness just a dozen steps too far. If people want to live in our country they could at least extend us the curtesy of treating our home with respect.

Of course what angers me even more is that, knowing our present government, there will be more than a few who will be prepared to listen to this outlandish idea. After all, they have already stopped the singing of Hymns in school assemblies, in case this offends our immigrant friends. Are we next going to see schools being built facing in the direction of Mecca?

Danielle Lloyd gets her teddy back

February 16, 2007

Hi Grit

I noticed today that one of the alleged “bullies and racists” from the big brother house seems to be getting her life back together. Danielle Lloyd, the 23 year old model, got a surprise Valentine’s gift with the return of her Teddy (the footballer that is). She was seen out in the back seats of a movie with him on valentine night, indulging in what all young love couples do in such a location, which is not watching the film!

Knowing how partial young women are to having an old teddy to cuddle in bed, I bet this has made Danielle’s nights far more comfortable and cuddly.

The true face of liberalism, another chapter.

February 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

Let us imagine that a conservative candidate for President discovered that, in the past, two of his/her staffers had written evil nasty things about gays or Hispanics.  What do you think the lot of those people would be?  Terminated immediately with great fanfare and many apologies for ever being associated with such horrible people, is the correct answer.  However, if a liberal candidate for President has the same situation, with the exception that the writing was anti-Catholic hate speech, Edwards Won’t Fire Bloggers For Catholic Church Criticisms, you can plainly see that the attitude is completely different.  Obviously, liberals are perfectly OK with hating certain groups, as long as they are listed in the Big Book of Political Correctness under Evil Groups Approved to be Detested.  Unfortunately for Edwards, he happens to fall into one of those categories, the Evil Rich.  Of course, the liberal press are unlikely to point that out, or even mention the linked story.  Typical.

No cover up here!

February 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

 photo14.jpg

I mentioned earlier that Paris Hilton needed to release another sex tape to take attention away from her recent bout of Politically Incorrectness.  Well, there is a new celebrity sex tape about to be released, although it only stars a friend of Paris, Vivid Acquires Kim Kardashian Sex Tape for $1 Million.  It seem, as usual, the tape was stolen and sold by a Third Party.  Even pop culture tarts of Hilton’s stature can’t sell such a thing, since that would make them actual whores instead of just sluts.  While Kim doesn’t look all that trashy in the above photo, she tramps up pretty good:

 ursulamayesfeb132cmlj7.jpg

The other amateur porn star in the flick is someone or something named Ray J.  My guess is that this is just a warm up for another Paris Porn Picture to get her back in the good standing with her Hollywood friends.  Of course, if celebrity sex tapes fall out of favor, will Kim and Paris be required to attend pornhab?

Shilpa, Jade, Danielle and Jo – a week later

February 8, 2007

Hi Grit

Just thought you would want an how the people from the big brother house have got on since leaving just over a week ago.

Shilpa Shetty

Yesterday Shilpa Shetty went to Westminster to meet Tony Blair and other Members of Parliament. The crowds were so large that the police moved the following press conference for fears of security issues. Following this she travelled to Leicester, which has a large Asian community, where the crowds were even larger, forcing the police to not allow Shipla to get out of the car for the arranged Radio interview.  

Jade

Jade’s planned trip to India has been called off for the present, on advice of doctors who say that she still needs treatment to deal with the psychological affect of her recent stay in the house. Mind you she got into more trouble for taking a ride with her three year old son sitting on the top of the petrol tank of a quad bike. Jade’s agent has also confirmed that she has no work as all previous engagements have been cancelled.

Danielle

Danielle, after being interviewed by police, has decided to take a holiday in the sun with her parents. Apparently, she has still not met with her boyfriend, Teddy Sherringham, an English football player, so that does not look very promising. In addition to all the modelling contracts Danielle has lost, she is also being sued for £100,000 by the Miss GB organisers for bringing the pageant into disrepute by appearing topless in a magazine and having an affair with one of the judges – you’ve guessed it, Teddy Sherringham.

Jo O’Meara

Like Jade, Jo has spent the week getting psychiatric help. Out of the three, Jo is the one who has kept the lowest profile, partially due to death threats that have been made about her.

Other news is that the police are planning on interviewing seven of the big brother housemates, so there is more to come on the potential for criminal charges.

They say a week is a long time in politics. In entertainment it is proving to be even longer when one considers the dramatic effect that it has had on these four ladies lives.

And I thought Muslims were touchy…

February 6, 2007

Hi Brit,

Brace yourself.  We may, just may, get the chance to follow events as a new addition is made to Politically Correct speech.  You probably recall that one of our Presidential Candidates, Senator Biden, complemented a fellow Candidate, Senator Obama, by saying he is articulate.  He also said he is clean, but we’re beyond that for the moment.  However, according to, The Racial Politics of Speaking Well, “articulate”, as said of a black person, may soon be on the Politically Correct Big List of Bad Words.  I’m not sure I completely follow the logic of the piece, but, it seems to make the case that calling one African-American articulate, implies that most aren’t well spoken and, thus, is a racial insult.  I can hardly wait to see how far this goes.  Who knows, in a few years we may not even be able to speak to or about a tenth of our population.

Is there gayhab in Paris’ future?

February 6, 2007

Hi Brit,

Remember back when Isaiah Washington had that moment of homophobia?  Do you also recall that Paris Hilton committed a similar politically incorrect indiscretion?  Well, it seemed for a while that she was going to miss the storm of criticism that forced Isaiah into gayhab, but she’s not out of the woods just yet: Gay Leaders Urge Paris to Apologize.  Now she has GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) on her ass, demanding an apology.  Better do something fast, Paris, before your image is tarnished.

The face of liberalism comes into focus.

February 4, 2007

Hi Brit,

Here, Democratic Committee Member Quits Caucus Post After Confrontation, we have yet another example of violence and racism in the Democratic Party.  Alvaro Cifuentes, it would seem, got a little tired of the shabby treatment minorities get at the hands of the DNC (Democratic National Committee), and let his true nature shine through, long enough to try to physically intimidate an aide to Howard Dean, and managed to get in a racial slur, calling a black man “boy,” before being physically restrained himself.  What darkness lurks in the minds of men, the liberals know.

Paris Hilton – Racist!?!

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, Paris has, apparently, opened her mouth once too often:

PARIS HILTON SPITS N-WORD AND F-WORD: And the video proof is on YouTube.

Possible Racist Paris Hilton Video Surfaces Online

If this is true, even rehab may not fix it.  If this is true, even apologies may not fix it.  The only recourse the empty headed heiress has that may in some small way repair the damage this will do to her public image is to release another sex tape.  Who cares if this trashy twit is homophobic or racist?  The only thing people care about is seeing her naked.  So Paris, show us your tits and all is forgiven.

Danielle interviewed by police

February 2, 2007

danielle.jpgHi Grit

The incident in the Big Brother house is continuing to rumble on. Yesterday Danielle was interviewed, in her lawyers office in London, by police as they continue their investigation in the “racism” and “bullying” incident. The meeting took three hours, with her management saying that she was happy to cooperate with them.

The mask continues to slip from the face of liberalism.

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

It seems that the recent victory of the Democrats may well be their destruction.  Power has already started going to their heads, and, in the internal struggle for position and status, their true nature is coming out: Sanchez Accuses Democrat of Calling Her a ‘Whore,’ Resigns from Hispanic Group.  True or not the accusation brings to light the sexism rampant in the liberal camp, while the very existence of a separate group open only to Hispanics shows their embrace of racism.  No wonder liberals are so eager to pass laws against these things; having these afflictions themselves, they assume the worst in everyone.

Shilpa and Jo and Royalty

January 31, 2007

Hi Grit

Just when you thought it was all over, so it starts again. Yes, you are correct. There are rumours that Shilpa is set to meet the Queen and Tony Blair (providing the latter keeps himself out of prison). In addition, a significant number of offers have come her way, including book deals, West End appearences and many others.

On the other side of the coin Jo, one of the three accused of bullying has won the support of Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of Prince Andrew, who rightly thinks that it is time to draw a line under this situation. Jo has also suffered over the weekend as her manager died of a heart attack.

Time to draw the curtains and let all of these people get on with their lives.

Royals need publicity too.

January 31, 2007

Hi Brit,

More and more, I believe you were correct in your analysis of the Big Brother situation, and that it may well have been manipulated.  However, you may not have probed deeply enough into who was behind the conspiracy:

BB QUEEN SHILPA SET TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH ROYALTY

MOTHERLY FERGIE STANDS UP FOR BB’S JO O’MEARA

 It would seem, that your Royal Family has a stake in this mess as well.  Where will it end?  More importantly, when will it end?

Jade, Shilpa and Big Brother – the media aftermath

January 30, 2007

Hi Grit

As expected, the story of the Big Brother house and it’s inmates continues in the media, with screaming headlines from all the papers each trying to lead with a different contestant. The Mirror has Shilpa’s story, which is still the most balanced of the lot, as she tries to defuse the racism aspect.

The Sun reveals that Jade Goody, the main instigator, has booked into a rehab clinic on the verge of a breakdown, as her world is falling apart. Whatever one’s views on her are, let’s hope at least she can find some peace and come to terms with everything, if only for her family.

The Daily Star led with Danielle’s story, which had little to add and seemed to confirm what Shilpa thought of her, that she was stupid. The Mirror again carried the story about Jo O’Meara refusing to apologise for her part in the incident.

Have you noticed anything strange about all this? The most startling fact to me is that none of the male contestants of the show appear to made or been ask to make any comment about the events of the past three weeks.

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

Shilpa Shetty wins

January 28, 2007

Hi Grit

It is over. A few moments ago Shilpa Shetty, the 31 year old Indian Actress walked out of the house for the final time, as the WINNER.  Shilpa, the target of racial abuse and bullying during her stay in the house, collects a £100,000 prize, collected 63% of the vote, beating Jermaine Jackson into second, and Dirk Benedict into third place. None of the three finalists were British.

Even in the post winning interview, Shilpa was magnanimous in victory, asking people to forget what had happened and thanking everyone in the UK for the opportunity she had been given. This despite having to sit through some awful comments that were made about her behind her back in the house by others.

Whether this will be the end of the incident remains to be seen, but at least Shilpa has acted like a lady and a deserving winner. Let’s hope that the media and everyone else takes her lead and lets the incident alone from now on, although I doubt with the English media that this will happen.

Anyway, congratulations to the Lady and to your two American contestants who did so well. America should be rightfully proud of the way that Jermaine and Dirk conducted themselves during this show. It is a shame some of the British contestants could not have acted more like the three finanlists.

Jo, Jade, Danielle and Big Brother

January 27, 2007

Hi Grit

I am afraid that the Big Brother show will go on for the next three days at least. Take today for example. I found Jade Goody on the front of no less that a dozen magazines and 5 newspapers. As for Jo, she is one of the gang of three who were involved with the racism and bullying and has faced a public reaction similar to Jade. It is expected that the same will be the fate of Danielle, who will leave the house on Sunday.

Did I hear you say that you don’t know who Jo is? Surely you remember the band “Steps” from the UK 🙂 a few years ago. It was a boy/girl combo band that failed to achieve much success outside of our shores. Jo was one of the singers, only her vocabulary and elocution appears to have deterioated dramatically from then.

Yes it is true that we have laws over here, which can be exercised by the police if they feel that the words and actions promoted race hatred. Actually, we do not have that book of political correctness and the fact that you might have relatives of a different national origin can not be used as an excuse for the comments that were made in this case, should the police wish to pursue the matter.  In this case they have already contacted Jade and her mother and asked them to attend interviews, and intend to do the same with Jo and Danielle as soon as they are free from the big brother house. So it appears that they are taking the incident very seriously and all three will have a serious problem, on top of the dislike from the public and their career damage.

Of course the real crazy part is that the TV production company was in a position to have not allowed this to become public so yes, as you say Grit, they deserve a kick somewhere. They could have bleeped or shut the viewing down during the situation, instead of which they allowed it to run live and then repeated it on at least two occasions.

One two more days to go through my friend.

Shilpa Shetty – could cost bookies £2 million

January 25, 2007

Hi Grit

The Big Brother house row has taken a new twist today in terms of the amount it is costing those involved. However, this time it the UK bookies (betting organisations) that are crying. All survey indications are that the Indian contestant subjected to bullying and racist comments, Shilpa Shetty, is odds on favourite to win the series. If she does, the bookies will lose in excess of £2 million.

I may be accused of being cynical and uncaring but, considering the amount of money these organisations extract from the gambling public ever day, do I really care?

Have your city and burn it too!

January 24, 2007

Hi Brit,

Guess what, there is violence in Beirut!  Why is that news, you might wonder?  I’ll tell you.  If you glance through this article, Clash Pits Hezbollah Against Rule in Lebanon, you’ll find that there is a reasonable chance for Hezbollah, a horribly brutal and violent terrorist group, to gain control of Lebanon.  Of course, they would immediately convert it to a safe haven for terrorists from around the world, like Al-Queda, and use it as a base from which to attack Israel, repeatedly, until they finally win and slaughter all the Jews.  Of course, if they do win, my guess is that the result will be even worse, because someone will cap a nuke in their ass.  It doesn’t really matter who will do it, but there are plenty of contenders. 

Israel, an obvious first choice, but they probably won’t jump to be first, although they may toss around a couple of follow up strikes just to be sure.  Considering how many countries, like France, are just itching to see their bloody demise, they can’t take the chance.

USA, might happen.  Bush has nothing to loose, the military loves him enough to maintain secrecy, and we can probably do it with little chance of getting caught. 

Russia, my bet.  Keep in mind that Russia is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, and they make a lot of money selling arms to the Arabs.  The reason the Arabs need weapons is to continue the low level conflict with Israel.  Putin can’t afford to let one side or the other win.  Boom!

Syria, another good bet.  Face it, there is massive evidence that Saddam either had a nuke or was close to getting one.  Lots and lots of stuff made the journey to Syria just before Iraq fell.  If they have a nuke, what better time to use it?  Not only do they have a great shot at blaming the incident on Israel, but they can keep Hezbollah in check, before they become a dominate force in the area and threaten the Powers That Be in Syria.

Saudi Arabia, my second place bet.  Come on, you know the Saudis must have picked up a few big bombs by now.  It’s not like they can’t afford them.  Add to that, their need to keep the attention of their citizens focused on the Evil Jews, instead of how oppressed they are by the Monarchy.  Then mix in a bit of realization that, besides a desire to kill Americans and Jews, most of the terrorist groups want to take control of the entire Middle East and return things to how they were during the Persian Empire.  Oh, with themselves in charge of course, which wouldn’t set well with the current dictators of SA.  Sprinkle a little control of Mecca on top, and the Saudi Royal Family has an excellent reason not to allow Hezbollah to gain too much power.  That reason being, keeping their heads attached to their necks.

I suggest we all spend some time cheering for the current Government of Lebanon.

Jade Goody goes Indian

January 24, 2007

Hi Grit

I know I said I would not post any more about Jade, but I thought you ought to know that the lady, accused of racism, is ready to pack her bags and take a visit to India. It would appear that she has been invited to visit the county to see for herself how the culture works over there.

It will be interesting to see how this trip works out for Jade. She is either going to find out exactly what it is like to be on the receiving end of racist attacks or, hopefully, the Indian people will accept her countless apologies and take the opportunity of mending a few bridges.

Whatever you views upon the lady, one has to give her credit for accepting her errors and making the attempt to redress the situation and make amends.
