A child's birthday, Swedish style

If you think the nanny state is bad in Britain, then read this story from Sweden.

A little boy is about to celebrate his birthday and is about to have a party. He went to school and started handing out invitations to his classmates, however, he decided not to invite two people in his class. Why? Because one of them did not invite him to his birthday party and the other one had been unfriendly towards this little boy. Fair enough, I hear you say, but not in 'we'll look after you from cradle to grave, tax you to the hilt and deprive you of your civil liberties' Sweden.

The teacher confiscated all the invitations because missing out two children was 'forbidden and a violation of their rights.' If you are thinking of checking your calendar and making sure it is not April 1, there is no need to; I have already done that for you. This has to be the most barmy story I have read in a long time and what is more the politicians believe the school was right. Remind me to scratch Sweden off my places to visit list. With my weakness of saying whatever I think, there is no doubt I will be deported within hours.

Archbishop John Sentamu

Watching Archbishop John Sentamu on Andrew Marr this morning reminded me again of a question. Why isn't he or someone of similar stature Archbishop of Canterbury? Here is a man of great intellect and morality who speaks not only for the Church of England, but for Britain as a whole. Archbishop Rowan Williams is so heavenly minded, he is of no earthly use. When the church needs leadership he is sorely lacking. It is as if the media now automatically seek the views from the man at Bishopthorpe and by-pass Lambeth Palace completely.

This is not without precedent though. When John Habgood was Archbishop of York, he regularly assumed the role of media spokesman for the Church of England, rather than allowing the hopeless George Carey make another gaff.

John Sentamu gave us a suggestion on TV this morning. He suggested everyone of us put aside £1, so when Zimbabwe is eventually free of its current tyranny, aid and food will be quickly available to relieve the suffering of its citizens. A good, practical suggestion from a good, practical man.

Wendy Alexander - it can happen to any politician

I have sympathy for Wendy Alexander. I don't think she was a good leader for Labour in the Scottish Parliament; far from it, and that is probably why Labour have let her resign. If she had been a strong leader she would have taken the one-day ban and then she would have rode the storm and everyone in her party would have been behind her.

What Wendy Alexander did was make a mistake. The rules regarding registering campaign donations are unnecessarily complicated and a candidate is at the mercy of officials to guide them in the right direction. She did seek advice and was advised incorrectly. She then declared ten donations of around £1000 each.

Put this into perspective. Gordon Brown gave a bribe of £2.7 billion trying to secure the votes in Crewe and Nantwich. Brown gave bribes worth £20 million per vote to the DUP to secure a victory in the 42 days vote. Alexander has not syphoned off cash into her personal bank account. She has made a mistake.

Before anyone gets on to their 'high horse' about this, remember the same mistake can easily be made by politicians in any party; something that the SNP should remember.

Robert Mugabe has won a sweeping victory. What a surprise!

If there is something worse than a dictator, then it is a dictator who tries to presume he has democratic legitimacy. Robert Mugabe is claiming a 'sweeping victory' in Zimbabwe. Considering he was the only candidate after his campaign of terror, it is hardly surprising, although Morgan Tsvangirai's name was still on the ballot paper.

What we need now is the spineless Thabo Mbeki to do his job and pull the plug on Zimbabwe. Other African states have criticised Mugabe and Nelson Mandela has intervened for the first time in eight years. Desmond Tutu has also called for intervention. South Africa is the only African nation that can do something. They must act and act quickly.

Read this and then fight for the British way of life

Donal Blaney - in a post today - has shown us just how bad life has got after 11 years of Labour government. It is the perfect reason why we all should fight for our freedom and the British way of life. Read what he has to say here.

Harriet Harman lives on another planet

Britain is tired of New Labour. They promised so much and yet delivered so little. The latest YouGov poll proves this point again, as if any of us needed reminding. Britain is tired of being lied to. In 1997, Labour promised us better public services, and the general mood around the country was if we have to pay, then we don't mind. Britain has been let down. Billions of pounds have been spent and the net result is more inefficiency, waste, dependence on the state and bureaucracy out of control. Now we want change and the change that only a Conservative government can give.

Harriet Harman obviously doesn't live in the real world. Her antidote to what Britain wants is yet more legislation. As if we haven't had more than enough already. I am beginning to feel like a persecuted minority as a white, middle class, heterosexual male. If Harriet has her way, if I am shortlisted in the last two or three for a job and there isn't a bug's whisker between us, I probably won't get that job, because an employer can discriminate against me because I am male. Now, who wants this legislation? Well, employers certainly don't. All they want to do is employ the best person for the job. They want to run their businesses without the interference of government, but Ms Harman doesn't get that.

Being in government doesn't always mean you are going to be popular; far from it, however you do have to question her judgement when she proposes something unnecessary and unpopular. The sooner this government is booted out, the better.

Anonymous Witnesses

My understanding on this issue - and any lawyers out there can put me right - is that there are two types of anonymous witness. One type is the professional witness. They are undercover police officers and members of the security services. The other type is someone who fears for their life due to intimidation from the defendant.

The first category obviously need their anonymity protected and the Law Lords' ruling was not designed to compromise those brave undercover officers and members of the security services who risk their lives in dangerous situations in order to protect the public.

The case for the second category is not as cut and dried. If you have information that may result in a criminal conviction, it is your duty to give this information to the police and that may result in you appearing in a court of law. It is all too easy to say you fear for your life. I am sure there are those who are involved in criminal activities and they don't want to be seen as grasses. I am sure there are those who want a quiet life and don't want their routine changed. What we cannot have is a defendant convicted mainly on the evidence of anonymous witnesses. This is unfair and makes it too easy for the prosecution. It makes it too easy for them to be sloppy. It makes is very hard for the defence to make its case properly.

The emergency legislation presented in the House of Commons today proposes to allow judges discretion on what they allow in their court. I support this measure, however, I agree with the Conservative line that this legislation should not be rushed through as quickly as possible. Although this legislation is needed, rushed legislation is usually bad legislation. Remember the Dangerous Dogs' Act? That is still giving us headaches today.

It would be preferable to have this on the statue book before the summer recess, however, that is not a target. If it is not ready it has to wait. What we do not want is a cock-up.

Robert Mugabe - is the end nigh?

Today has given me hope. Finally I now think the end is nigh for Robert Mugabe. Other African nations are waking up and smelling the coffee. They seem - at last - to realise he has to go for the good of his people and their continent. It's a pity the South African President can't be brave enough to urge Mugabe to go. He has obviously modelled himself on Neville Chamberlain. Appeasement is the order of the day for him. This is unfortunate for South Africa as they need firm leadership and they are not getting it.

I was also glad that - at last - Mugabe has been stripped of his honorary knighthood. My only criticism is why has it taken so long? How many of your countrymen do you have to murder before this government deems you unworthy of a British honour? So much for the trumpeted ethical foreign policy back in 1997.

I don't have much time for the United Nations. Most of the time I cannot see the point of its existence. If Africa is willing to sort itself out and resolve to sort Mugabe out and the UN offers assistance, perhaps I will be able to tolerate it for a little while more. The positive though is Africa is starting to sort out its own problems and this is good for everyone.

Blogpower, flooding and free speech.

As I haven't blogged for the last few days, I have a few things to comment on.

Firstly, I have rejoined Blogpower as you might have noticed looking at my sidebar. It's good to be back and welcomed with open arms.

Secondly, today the weather was warm and sunny this morning, however, this afternoon we had some showers and it was humid. Rather different to June 25 2007 when we witnessed - or in my case - suffered the worst flooding in Hull in living memory. Regular readers of this blog will know the battles I had in order to get my house fit for human habitation.

This leads me on to my third comment. Today Baht decided to comment here in his usual barbed way. He has not learnt any new tricks since he was booted out of Blogpower. I cherish my right of free speech more than most and he is entitled to air his opinions, however, as his opinions are never constructive and usually abusive, just like a newspaper editor doesn't have to print a reader's letter, I don't have to publish Baht's comments. I hope he gets the message and stops wasting his time.

Finally, I haven't been too busy with David Davis's campaign over the last few days. I have helped erect a new garden shed for Becky's Mum and I have been working hard doing my day job. Other than that, those of you who have Sky + will know how wonderful it is for catching up with programmes you would have normally missed.

If you are on facebook, then you can also join many groups dedicated to helping David in his campaign. You can also become a friend of David. Check it out!

4 David Davis 4 Freedom

Tom Paine is a blogger I have long admired. He understands better than most how liberty is dying in this country.

He is a contributor on a new blog, 4 David Davis 4 Freedom. It was the brain child of another fine blogger, Man in a Shed, and I am also contributing. The next three weeks give us a unique opportunity to defend the Magna Carta and habeas corpus. These are rights every British citizen should hold dear and fight for. Join us in the debate. Come and campaign for Davis Davis. The rights and liberties we have enjoyed are under threat. Take action now.

David Davis and Labour Bloggers

The blogosphere tends to be a libertarian place. Those of us who blog - in general - value our liberty and freedom. After all, if we didn't have the right to freedom of speech, we wouldn't here blogging in the first place.

What has surprised me over last three days is the amount of Labour bloggers, who - you would think - are capable of independent thought, faithfully towing the party line and describing David Davis as a 'Tory mentalist', in the case of Recess Monkey. Those Labour MPs who changed their minds and voted with the government on Wednesday, at least got some form of sweetener. What do the Labour bloggers get? Is Brown giving them a bung too?

I can't believe that all the Labour bloggers I have read are in favour of 42 days, ID cards and a surveillance society. If Labour MPs come out and say David is right in what he is doing, why don't Labour bloggers? From time to time I have criticised the Conservative leadership and I am living proof that you don't get hung, drawn and quartered for doing so. Come on Labour bloggers, have the courage of your convictions and say that Gordon Brown is wrong in what he is doing. David's campaign to protect our civil liberties is more important than Gordon Brown losing face.

David Davis's re-election campaign - update

Sorry for the lack of blogging. I have been busy trying to drum-up support for David Davis.

We are still in the early stages at the moment and there are many logistical hurdles to get over. We need to find a Campaign HQ this week, as our office in Willerby is too small to accommodate the expected number of activists who will be arriving in the constituency to help with the campaign. Once this is sorted, we will be in a better position to welcome everyone to East Yorkshire.

This is going to be a massive campaign and not the side-show Gordon Brown and Labour want it to be. We need all the help we can get, so if you want to join us, send your details in an e-mail to: conservative@haltemprice.karoo.co.uk. As soon as the logistics are in place, we will contact you and welcome you with open arms.

This is not a typical by-election. We have received messages of support from people who would not normally vote Conservative and - as you will be aware from the media - members of other political parties. This is an issue which transcends party politics. David is fighting for our liberties and for our freedom. Come and join us!

David Davis's re-election campaign

I have been to the Haltemprice and Howden constituency office in Willerby today. The response to David Davis's decision has been overwhelming. If you try and call the office, be prepared for a long wait. You will hear the engaged tone so many times. The e-mails have been coming in their hundreds. I am going there tomorrow to read them and sort out those who are pledging money, pledging active support and those who are simply congratulating David on this stand.

I was also at a meeting tonight where David told us his reasons for doing what he has done. If anyone thinks this is a stunt by a vain man, think again. Just looking straight in to his eyes, I could see the passion and determination of the man. He is doing because he knows our rights and freedoms are being eroded. He is doing this because enough is enough.

A website will be launched shortly and I urge everyone to get behind the campaign. I will update you on a regular basis. This is going to be one hell of a campaign.

David Davis - a principled man

Like everyone, I was gobsmacked by David Davis' decision to resign today. It was something no-one saw coming. I didn't know how to react, however, after some thought I have come to a decision.

The erosion of our rights and liberties by this government has got to stop. This is not a stunt by a vain man, as Tony McNulty has said on Question Time. This is an act from a principled man who has said enough is enough. I am relishing the chance of knocking on doors and campaigning on this issue. I will be working as hard as I can to get across our message. I hope we are inundated with offers of help and raise this issue to the top of the political agenda for weeks to come.

A coming of age

Just a little bit of nostalgia. Today is the 21st anniversary of Margaret Thatcher's third victory as prime minister in a general election. It was my first foray in to political campaigning. June 11 1987. I remember it as if it was yesterday. Happy memories.

The DUP takes a bung and Brown gets his way on 42 days - for now.

So, what was the bribe? There must have been one. There is no way the DUP would vote with the government unless there was something in it for them. It will come out in the wash very soon. I am tempted to have a tirade about the DUP. I will refrain at the moment, however, I will echo Iain Dale in calling them duplicitous bastards.

Now we have to endure the ping-pong match between the Commons and the Lords. This is a sad day for liberty. A day when cowardly Labour MPs thought more about their party than their country. The fight continues and I for one am ready for it. Right now, I am too angry to write anymore.

I'm still here and so are the Tories

Sorry for the lack of blogging over the last couple of days. It has been a mixture of visiting my Mum, booking our summer holidays and good old fashioned work.

There has been a few things that have attracted my attention in the news this week, particularly another excellent showing for the Conservatives in the latest opinion poll. The vote on 42 days without charge is the big one this week. I just hope there are enough MPs with the guts to vote against the government and let this pie in the sky and dangerous proposal disappear into the graveyard of ill thought out, proposed government legislation.

Lowering the voting age

The Labour MP Julie Morgan is tyring to get a Private Members' Bill through parliament which will allow 16 year-olds to vote. Is this the best she can up with? Last year saw it illegal for 16 year-olds to buy tobacco products. You cannot start learning how to drive a car - unless you are disabled - until you are 17 years old. You cannot buy alcohol until you are 18 years old. You cannot fight for your country until you are 18 years old. Does she think all of these age restrictions should be brought down too?

The current limit of 18 years is the norm in the majority of democracies. I am confident it will remain the same here too. Julie; get a life!

Piers Morgan - a complete dick head

All readers of this blog know I do not normally resort to expletives, however, today I am going to make an exception.

I have always thought Piers Morgan was an odious prat. Every time I see him on television, my disgust of him increases. Currently we are watching 'America's Got Talent.' Whilst I agree not everyone who appears on the show has talent, Morgan's responses are vile. If you think he has any scruples, forget it. We have just watched him perform a character assassination on a very young girl, who was - quite naturally - in floods of tears. This man is a disgrace to the human race and represents this country in a most appalling way.

New Labour - they are a joke.

If you want to read a damning indictment of the New Labour project, then look no further than Jeff Randall in today's Telegraph. I will say no more, just click here.

Bungling Brown has bankrupted Britain

The OECD has slammed Gordon Brown for his fiscal looseness. I'm pleased such a respected organisation has confirmed what the Conservatives have been saying to a long time. Thanks to 'Bungling Brown' the UK is in a unique position; but it's not a unique position any other country would want to be in. Because of his incompetence, Britain is not in a position to ride the storm of the credit crunch or a recession. We are not as fortunate as Americans who now have lower taxes to help them out of difficulties. We are worse off than our European neighbours. Borrowing heavily in a boom time will always come back to haunt you. History has taught us that lesson many times. I can only hope this report resonates strongly with the electorate. Brown's record is unravelling around him. With Brown captaining the Ship of State, Labour are heading for political annihilation.

Please read, our liberty is in danger

Following on from my post yesterday, I was sent this e-mail from 'Liberty' today. Please read it and act upon it. This is an organisation I am proud to be a member of.



Keep up the pressure
….Government offers “Cons” not Concessions on Counter-Terror Bill

Dear Friend,

Government offers “Cons”, not Concessions on Counter-Terror Bill

Amendments to the Government’s Counter-Terror Bill are meaningless and offer no safeguards for suspects who could be detained for up to six weeks and then released without charge. Liberty has stressed today that despite these amendments, counter-productive extension of pre-charge detention would still be triggered to deal with individual cases rather than genuine emergencies, making the promise of increased Parliamentary oversight meaningless.

Flaws in the Government’s amendments to the Counter-Terror Bill include:

● Not Genuine Emergency Powers: The proposal has been dressed up with more language about “grave and exceptional terrorist threats,” but there is still no legal requirement for a terrorist emergency to exist and no requirement for the Home Secretary to show that 42 days detention is urgently needed to deal with any threat. Forty-two days could still become routine, triggered for operational convenience in individual cases.

● Parliamentary Oversight: The amendments promise more Parliamentary oversight but, however diligent our Parliamentarians, this could not provide anything more than a rubber-stamping exercise. The 42 day limit would still be triggered to keep a particular individual in custody. This would, therefore, involve Parliament debating individual cases which could prejudice future prosecutions.

● Judicial Oversight: The role of a judge in approving the use of 42 days in individual cases is of little comfort as, before a person is charged there is, by definition, no evidence for a court to test. No CPS application to detain a person for between 14 and 28 days has ever been refused. The courts would not be able to overturn these “reserve powers” if triggered in a disproportionate or irrational way or in a way which breaches human rights.

Read our latest press release
here and download Liberty’s short briefing “Understanding the pre-charge detention debate” here to find out more.

Report stage is approaching…

Please remember that your help at this stage is crucial. Even is you have already done so, this is the time to
email your MP, expressing your concerns about the extension to pre-charge detention and the new Government amendments. Urge your MP to vote against the 42 days proposal.
What You Can Do
If you have not already, please:
Sign the petition against increased pre-charge detention at the Number 10 website
Find out whether your MP supported
extended detention in 2005 and then write to them urging them to vote against the 42 day proposals
Continue to spread the word about the campaign among your friends and family and direct them to
http://www.chargeorrelease.com/ for more info
Donate whatever you can to Liberty – your money will help us put a stop to this legislation and support civil liberties in the UK

And finally, make ‘Charge or Release’ an award winning campaign….

We are proud to announce that Liberty’s “Charge or Release” campaign has been short listed for the Public Affairs News awards in the “voluntary sector campaign of the year”.

Please, do take a couple of minutes to
register and cast your vote for “Charge or Release”. Tell your friends and remember that voting closes at midnight on Friday, 13th June 2008.
Thank you - we are counting on your support.

Thatcher Mania - must watch television

Iain Dale has reminded us that 'Thatcher Mania' is about to start on the BBC shortly. As it is the BBC, be assured that none of these prorammes will be aired on BBC1 or 2. They are on BBC4 instead, but I guess as most people have access to the freeview channels there shouldn't be a problem.

I had a falling out with Sky earlier this year, so what we have intstead is Top-up TV. I have already set the recorder for all of the programmes. I know I will forget they are on; at least the recorder doesn't!

42 days without charge

It looks like the government is going to get its own way on the 42 days detention limit.

My response is simple and it has always been consistent. Our ancient, unwritten constitution, has - as Gladstone eloquently put it - evolved from the womb. Habeas Corpus and the Magna Carta have been the backbone of this country's legal system. I'm not a lawyer, but I do know the more power we give to the authorities, the more freedom we lose. For them to require these powers they have to put a cogent case forward. This has not happened.

The police have never had to hold a terror suspect for 42 days before charging them. 42 days has been plucked out of the air. If you believe in freedom, you cannot be in favour of this proposed legislation. I appeal to all MPs to vote with your conscience and vote against this folly.

Mugabe in Rome

Robert Mugabe has arrived in Rome to discuss the problems of a world food shortage. Rather like getting King Herod to do your baby sitting for you. Although he has an EU travel ban imposed on him, he still manages to make his vile presence felt. World leaders show their disgust, but naturally nothing is done. African leaders will not live up to their responsibilities in trying to force Mugabe out and he freely flies to Rome. He doesn't think he has the upper hand; he knows it.

Will life be worth living in rural England after Labour are finished?

I was in a happy mood on the way to pick up my newspaper today. One look at the front page of The Daily Telegraph, and my mood changed. Two headlines grabbed my attention. Firstly the story of how Labour over the past 11 years has diverted money from rural areas and made sure their heartlands received the cash instead. Just like the bribe offered before the Crewe and Nantwich by-election, it demonstrates that the government will go to any lengths to stay in power.

The next story informed me that a further 4,000 post offices could close. This could halve the total number of branches. Labour doesn't try and disguise what it is doing. It is blindingly obvious. Divert money away from mainly Tory areas, close down the village post office, and tax people more for using their cars - even though they have to as they can't pop down to the local shop anymore, as that used to double-up as a post office too, and the owner couldn't keep in business. It won't cost them any votes, as the people there wouldn't have voted Labour. So much for government for all the people. What's the next wheeze going to be? If they could get away with it, strip even more money away and encourage a school closure programme?

Not happy with just wrecking the economy and leaving the country bankrupt, they want to make sure we are taxed to the hilt, taken for a ride and kicked in the balls for good measure. I shudder to think how much more damage Brown and Co can do to this country in the remaining two years they have in office.

More footage from the 'party' on the tube

I have been sent a video from friction.tv showing the scenes from the 'party' on the London Underground two days ago. Please be warned, there is a lot of swearing, however, it proves again why alcohol should be banned from public transport in London.

Jack Straw

Jack Straw was interviewed by Andrew Marr this morning, talking about the 42 days detention limit and knife crime. Naturally he defended Brown when the question of the prime minister's future was asked. If any of the young turks take over as Labour leader, they will lose just as badly - if not worse - than Brown. In any case when your party is heading for electoral defeat, the last thing young want to be is the captain. I can easily envisage Jack as an interim prime minister. He is someone who doesn't have any ambition for the job, and would be regarded as a safe pair of hands. It will be interesting to see what the mood of Labour MPs' is like when they return to Westminster tomorrow. With the vote due this week on 42 days without charge, there could be much rebellion in the air. A week is a long time in politics.

Drinking on the tube

The events on the London Underground yesterday prove that Boris Johnson was right to ban the consumption of alcohol. The police have said what should have been a fun event came to an unfortunate end. The thought of large numbers of people staying on the tube for hours consuming large amounts of alcohol, was always going to end in an unfortunate way. You certainly don't need a PhD in psychology to work that one out.

There is a disease rife in Britain. If I have too much to drink, I find my way home and get off to bed. I don't deliberately go out to get drunk, however, most of us have been in the situation where we have had one too many. I remember going to an event in Germany where there was a festival around an old mill. You didn't have to walk very far to get to a beer stall, wine stall, or any number of food outlets. At one point there was around a thousand people merrily eating and drinking. At the end of the night everyone went home and there was not one jot of trouble. Try and replicate that in Britain and the riot vans would be called out.

Yet this government thinks we can solve this disease of destruction by allowing 24 hour drinking. Only an idiot would come up with such a suggestion. Boris Johnson was right to ban alcohol on public transport in London. No-one needs to drink a can of beer on such a short journey. If you are sat on a train for a couple of hours you can have a leisurely drink. Drinking on the tube requires you to drink faster and can also seem threatening to fellow passengers. Those idiots on the tube last night should hang their heads in shame.
