  3. The curious case of Tommy Robinson

    Bizarre. TR leaves the EDL because they've become too extreme. Make of this what you will. He's now hooked up with some former islamic extremists, the quilliam foundation, to promote cultural harmony. One of founding members of the quilliam foundation, maajid nawaz, attended westcliff high...

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals"

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals" I have no idea if this is genuine or not (I have no idea if the Daily Bale is a parody or what), but if there is any truth in this at all, it's a total disgrace...

    The french presidential election............and beyond

    From my Facebook Page A worrying night in the French Presidential Election............and my worry is not for 2012 but for 2017. Nearly a third of French voters chose to vote for the extreme left or extreme right, with a far larger majority opting for the latter. Between 18% and 20% appear...

    Orange, stick to mobile phones.....

    and leave the attempted social engineering to the BBC. That advert which involves the unlikely combination of Busta Rhymes and volunteer work is the most pathetic attempt to portray Britain's 'multi-cultural' youth as a cool but caring body of misunderstood young saints. The girls in that ad...
