New Element discovered by scientists at CERN

A guest post by John Planter – with tongue firmly in cheek…..

 

Scientists at CERN in Geneva have announced the discovery of the HEAVIEST element yet known to science.

AND yes … it was discovered in Great Britain , which is now the leading producer.

The new element is Governmentium (Gv).  It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lefton-like particles called peons.

Since  Governmentium has no electrons or protons, it is inert.  However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes in contact.

It’s Conference season

Party Conference season is upon us and the circus unfolds.

This week, Labour have been going through their paces and the clowns have been front and centre – take a bow Clive Lewis, John McDonnell and not forgetting Diane Abbott.

Not a lot of policy on BREXIT but lots of misguided political correctness  to get your teeth in to

 

Here’s my take….

 

A reply to Cllr Janet Gardner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

In the Uxbridge Gazette on 23rd November, Cllr Gardner wrote in to the letters page with a piece called ‘Remembrance and our town’s solidarity’. I reproduce the letter below –

I would like to thank PC Emma Reed and her Police colleagues for organising yet again an event in Hayes for the community that live in Hayes and to again prove to the narrow minded critics of Hayes that rather than be a fragmented town as is often claimed, we are in fact ‘in solidarity’.

The event was conducted on the frontage of the Social Centre in Botwell Lane with prayers said by some of the local clergy and a PCSO, the local faith centres were represented by members of their congregations – Christians,Muslims,Buddhists,Sikhs,atheists, all observed the two minute silence.

Over 100 people attended the event, some with their little children,in remembrance of those who have died and are still dying in wars all over the world, and of course with emphasis on those who are affected by wars, many of who live alongside us in the community that is Hayes. Something we all tend to forget.

Children from the local school attended and I am sure some have family members who know first hand the horrendous effect of war.

So again I would like to thank the local Police teams and Emma especially for their ability to make many of the cynics realise that people who live in Hayes are all part of one community and not just many diverse groups living in isolation.

Firstly, can I express my whole hearted agreement that we are all one community – indeed, I have said as much on leaflets we have put out across Hayes. My grandfather served in the Western Desert and Italy during World War 2 and fought alongside Australians, Sikhs and Gurkhas to rid us of the Nazi menace – brave men all.

But a number of things about her letter have caused me to write this reply.

Paris attacks – The solution?

eiffel_tower_france_paris_219697The following is the first post from one of our new 2016 guest writers, Hilltop Watchman.

It is a tongue in cheek look at the problems surrounding Islamist extremism in France with a message for those who would appease terrorism. Any similarity to the situation in Israel and Gaza is purely intentional.

 

Following the operations in Paris by several lone wolf militants with mental problems, and the brutal and disproportionate responses by the French authorities, it is clear that it is French Islamophobia that has resulted in feelings of desperation within the Islamic community

Indeed French society is so apartheid, that Muslims now feel excluded in the No-Go, bainlieu concentration camps that surround Paris, a stain on Gallic society that hearkens back to the collaborative days under Nazi occupation.

It is clear that French colonialist oppression is creating a powder keg environment where young men in particular, who immigrated to France to immerse themselves in the cradle of European culture, see no hope for the future, their hopes and dreams so dashed, that militancy is their only outlet. Their disappointment can only be imagined.

The actions of the racist French Occupying Forces especially operations in the Parisian bainlieus, likewise in the “jungle” refugee camp that is surrounded by French settlements in Calais together with French settled hostility is another factor.

Tunisia and beyond – Why our Government keep failing in the face of terror

Like most of you, I was horrified by the events of last Friday – The massacre of tourists in Tunisia, the bombing of the Shia Mosque in Kuwait and the beheading of a worker at a chemical plant in France. It would appear that the Islamic State promise to paint the Holy month of Ramadan with blood was no idle boast as countries around the world were hit by grim acts of terror.

David Cameron 2Yesterday morning, David Cameron gave a press conference where he once again sent out a defiant message that the free countries of the world will not give in to these acts of barbarism and that the terrorists will never win. Unfortunately, whilst our Prime Minister thinks he talks a good game, both his actions and part of his speech show just why this growing threat shows no signs of going away in the near future.

 

Tough on the causes of extremism?

Both David Cameron and Home Secretary Teresa May have said that they will crack down hard on the preachers of hate. However, what they say and what they do are two entirely different things.

A response to Bill Oddie

The following is a response from UKIP Culture spokesman Peter Whittle to Bill Oddie’s comments about British families  

Profile_Pic.jpgUKIP Culture Spokesman Peter Whittle said: “Bill Oddie’s remarks this weekend, in which he described his shame at being British, and that the size of British families need ‘to be contained’ in the face of over population, were odious and misinformed.

“If they had been made about any other country or its people, he would almost certainly be facing the sack.

“The TV personality, whose salary as presenter of the BBC’s SpringWatch, is effectively paid by British taxpayers, talked of the British as being a ‘horrible race’.

“Such bigoted comments reveal a very distorted view and a complete ignorance of the facts. British families, like their counterparts in Europe, are on average small; indeed the indigenous populations of most European countries have been in steady decline for some time.

“In fact, the current and ongoing population boom in Britain is driven overwhelmingly by mass immigration.

“It might be easy to dismiss Mr Oddie’s remarks were in not for the fact that they are unfortunately typical of an attitude which has been unduly influential in British society for far too long. An unquestioning preference for mass immigration, a disdain for ordinary British people and a distaste for Britain itself, are knee-jerk prejudices all too often prevelant amongst those who shape our cultural landscape.

“We must challenge at every opportunity this kind of ill-informed, self-hating bigotry.”

One law for all?

EDP pictures 015Over the course of the last thirty years, England has seen vast change. Unprecedented levels of immigration have changed our society in many major cities from a predominantly white, caucasian and Christian society to one where people from many different ethnic groups, religions and backgrounds are present, and where social cohesion and interaction varies.

England has benefited in the past from sensible levels of immigration, where migrants have come here to build a new life and bring up their families as part of the established community – Growing up in the seventies in Hillingdon, we saw newcomers from the Indian subcontinent, West Indies and Ugandan Asians all settle here and assimilate in to our lifestyle whilst retaining their own cultural identities.

 

Part of the attraction of the UK, as relayed to me by friends from this generation, was the idea of tolerance, ‘British Fair Play’, the ability to better yourself through hard work and equality in our legal system. The Ugandan Asians in particular had suffered discrimination and persecution at the hands of the dictator, Idi Amin, and thrived in an atmosphere where everyone was given equal opportunity and respect under the law.

 

Forty years on, their grandchildren are now facing a situation that would have seemed alien to those settling in England in the 1970’s.
