Intergalactic Idiots Update

Well it only took them two days to notice the mistake, but the offending article is still on the website.

Intergalactic Idiots

It looks like some product of a university humanities department has written one of today's leaders in the Guardian. It seems the Sun is now about 4.5 light years from Earth! The Sun - as any 12 year old astronomer could tell you - is 1 AU away from earth or 149597871 kilometers that's an awful lot closer than 42750000000000 kilometers.

Update the readers editor has acknowledged the mistake.

France's Ethical Foreign Policy

What the fuck are the Froggies playing at? They have supported China's anti succession law which allows China to attack democratic Taiwan which poses no threat to mainland China. On top of that France wants to sell advanced military hardware to China. The EU currently bans arms sales to China due to the Tiananmen Square massacre. China has never apologized for, nor recognized that what it did in 1989 was in any way wrong. China also has an appalling record on human rights not to mention the fact that it has since 1948 fought wars with India, Russia, Vietnam, Korea, Mongolia and invaded Tibet. So of course it makes perfect sense for France to support the warmongering dictatorship instead of the one part of China which is a democracy. Do the Froggies now feel so impotent in the world that they will do anything to promote Chirac's view of a "multi polar world"? Sucking up to an increasingly powerful China may bring increased trade for France's faltering economy, but what about the medium to long term?

Are they so bone headed -read Gaulist- that they would risk Exocets or other European weapons being used against American forces? Imagine the consequences of an American aircraft carrier being hit with a French made Exocet in some future war in the Taiwan Straight(I can see Euro Lefties almost drooling at the prospect).

The French Constitution includes The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which is supposed to apply to all men without exception not just French citizens. Perhaps the French should amend their constitution to say except Chinese serfs.

Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite...

Phoning The Puntang Phone

Millions Will Die

Former Pope John Paul II seems to have secured his death promoting legacy with the election today of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as his successor, to be called Benedict XVI. Ratzinger is a promoter of the pro death policy of denying condom use whatever the circumstances. Hopefully he will be replaced rather sooner than his predecessor.

The Trade Justice Movement Is Morally Bankrupt

This report blows so called "fair trade" out of the water as anything but fair.

Labour's Message To Britain: Your Suspects Not Subjects

All new passport applications are to require applicants to report to one of seventy new passport service offices to have their fingerprints recorded in the national fingerprint database. Police and the security services are to have full access to the database. It used to be only convicted criminals had their fingerprints taken and kept by the state. Now the state keeps a record of DNA and fingerprints of anyone arrested even if they are not convicted never mind charged with a criminal offense. The fact that 80% of people in the UK have a passport means that the government will get it's ID card white elephant in the back door without consulting parliament. No doubt state authoritarians and IT companies are salivating at the thought of another juicy database to sink their fangs into. The whole thing stinks of the twin bastions of Labour's project to create legions of Labour voting civil servants to run their schemes, while reducing civil liberties in the process. It makes me want to punch the next snivelling government minister I see on the telly going on about protecting civil liberties from terrorist attack. More here.

21st Century Northern Ireland

A Belfast Hindu woman was recently asked if she was a Protestant Hindu or a Catholic Hindu. Have Hindus had some secret Reformation I didn't know about? Of course the answer is most citizens of N. Ireland are myopic numpties who can't see past their inbred bigotry. More here.

Parading Past Lenin

Normally I view Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee and her uber lefty ramblings as comedy. However I could not agree more with everything she says about the late Pope in her column today.
She makes my previous post about the pope look like warm praise for the old todger, I even borrowed the title of this post from her caustic column. Also in today's Guardian Jonathan Steele claims that the pope is being given to much credit for the downfall of international communism(I don't agree with everything JS says about Gorbachev bringing down communism, after all he wanted to reform the soviet system not bring it down).

It' funny that a mass protest movement against the Church has never sprung up, after all the Pope's polices against birth control have cost more lives than any war the US has ever been involved in. Then again most lefties are brainwashed with Anti-Americanism or maybe they're all just thick?

One Banana, Two Banana

We live in our very own "Banana Statelet" in Northern Ireland seemingly unable to govern ourselves, where every election is marked by allegations of voting irregularities perpetrated mainly by the Fascists of the Republican movement. Now it seems certain Labour candidates on the mainland have decided to take a few pointers from Sinn Fein in election rigging. Judge Richard Mawrey QC acting as election commissioner investigating a voting fraud by six Labor candidates described it as "massive, systematic and organized fraud". He also compared the process as worthy of a Banana Republic. The postal voting system (that labour introduced because it feels that it has a problem in getting people to the ballot box who claim to be Labour voters in opinion polls) was described as an invitation to fraud. Ministers then put pressure on Mr. Mawrey to delay his findings until after the upcoming election, while he accused them of being in denial.

Last night on BBC Question Time David "Big" Blunkett claimed(surprise, surprise) that his national compulsory ID card scheme was the answer. This of course would lead to the end of the secret ballot, as any biometric system installed in polling stations would in effect record who was and wasn't voting. This is a gross violation of personal privacy not to mention a potential gold mine of information to government psephologists. Blunkett seems almost obsessed with ID cards as some sort of universal panacea for all of Britain's ills he is wrong. The scheme itself will be a violation of privacy and a threat to not an enhancer of security(if you want to know why read this).

Whilst in opposition Labour portrayed it's self as the party of Liberty, but as we all know power corrupts and the Left's authoritarian tendencies and the we know best attitude have surfaced since Labour took power. Hopefully the fuckers will get a very bloody nose in the election which might mean the end of some of their harebrained control freakery.

More From The Bearded One

I bet you thought this was going to be about our very own Mullah Mr. Gerry Adams or perhaps the other great spiritual leader Pip Rastafari. Alas no, I was having another look at Ali Sistani's site again when I noticed in the Q&A section entitled "Diversion and Play" this little gem;

Question: Is having an orgy permissible under the Qur'an?

Answer: It's forbidden.

It seems the highly educated cleric doesn't know when someone is taking the piss.

All Aboard The Papa Express To Rome

It looks like we are in for a dose of media fueled mass hysteria in Rome this week in the run up to the popes funeral. World leaders will line up to pay respect to the "great man", documentaries will air, commentators will do their thing and Prince Charles will have his wedding postponed(snigger snigger). There is a certain irony in the fact that the last media mass hysteria event was caused by the death of his former wife.

The Pope may have been one of the four major contributors to the overthrow of communism in the Eastern Block but some of his teachings led to death and misery. He also preached against the authoritarianism of the Nazis and Communism but ran the church with a similar iron grip. The church's despicable spreading of lies about the efficacy of condoms in preventing the spread of HIV has cost incalculable lives in the developing world. The Pope was also personally responsible for the protection of paedophile priests in America, including giving a US cardinal wanted for conspiracy in connection with pedophilia a posting in Rome out US reach. A great man indeed.

I think the pope should be stuffed, mounted(with a pole up his ass) and made into as ashtray holder.
