Sentencing of paedophiles

 The UK news this morning tells of a young girl groomed on line by a 46 year old paedophile posing as a sixteen year old. Why is this allowed to continue? Seven years ago this blog suggested a remedy. See:

This man was imprisoned, released and reoffended causing LIFE-long distress to his victims. He and all the others should at the very least be physically castrated but preferably executed as a warning to others. Do not ruin childhoods and lives. EVER.

The meaning of 'mafia'.

 I have previously suggested that at least two of the laws of Islam bear some resemblance to those of the Mafia.


Further to my knowledge I learn from Puzo, in his book 'The Sicilian' that the word 'mafia' in Arabic means place of sanctuary and the concept of 'omerta' came to Sicily in the tenth century with the Saracens. 

If the UK authorities take measures to stop the influence of the Mafia I don't suppose they'd do the same ........ No. 

I don't think so!

The Afghan Monarchy

 As Afghanistan starts life as an Islamic Republic under the Taliban, I am reminded that not so long ago the Country was a monarchy. I have written previously, 

(see: ) of my belief that a sound and established constitutional monarchy such as exists in the United Kingdom represents the best basis for stable governance of a Country and its people. I wonder how many Afghans mightily wish they had such a future with a chance of a peaceful life with the hope of prosperity and the freedom to enjoy it.

I wish the people of Afghanistan all the best.

May her god save the Queen, Elizabeth II

The latest Crusade

 In all reports of the successful coup in Afghanistan, I have never seen any mention of Islam. Yet the bloodless coup will be seen by the victors, the Taliban, as vindication of the belief that Allah, does indeed, favour them over the predominantly Christian West. Make no mistake this was another episode of the Crusades. The last twenty years of democratic life in the Country was a setback for the terrorists but rather than imagine that Allah was against them, or impossibly non-existant, they simply argue that he was testing them.

This position in an argument whereby one side cannot ever be wrong makes negotiation difficult if not impossible leading to the adoption of practices common in the seventh century, AD. Sharia law will be implemented as Aghanistan becomes an Islamic Republic aligned with other Sunni regimes such as Saudi Arabia from whence sprung Al Quaida.

It seems to me that this benighted Country will never recover until Islam itself is defeated and that will only happen when all organised religion is swept aside under a weight of scientific evidence that deities cannot exist.

 Famously and according to many theologies, eschatology, the end of times describes many tribulations before the second coming of the Messiah, Parousia.

With the planet now in the grip of a multitude of natural disasters, the question of the imminent realisation of these fears needs to be addressed. The planet is warming. Ice caps and glaciers are melting, the Siberian permafrost is releasing massive quantities of carbon into the atmosphere and wild fires threaten massive land areas on every continent. Volcanoes seem to be more active and earthquakes devastate communities around the world. Heavier than ever rainfall creates flooding that demolishes whole communities. There are other natural events that should be noted. The number of species that are becoming extinct is growing. New diseases such as covid and ebola are proliferating adding to the misery of homelessness, starvation and loss of fresh water. Never in my lifetime have I felt so pessimistic about the future faced by my children and grandchildren.

It has happened before, causing diaspora of dispossessed folk migrating into new pastures and often upsetting the residents. This too is happening, causing much of Europe to be wary of the influx of sub saharan africans and middle eastern refugees bringing with them their 'alien' cutures and beliefs. In the Americas, walls have been built to stem the flow of people from the Central countries and Mexico to the US. Wars have started with less provocation.

Are these tribulations those that heve been forecast in antiquity? Or is it simply that nature is playing out its destiny according to the rules of physics. No amount of human behaviour can change this progression. There have been times of heat and ice before as the cyclic nature of the planet evolves but now, technology allows humans to better accommodate the changes. This will not protect everyone, especially the most vulnerable in under developed Countries but is this too, part of nature's plan to stem population growth and protect the viability of the planet. With the global population approaching eight billion is now the time?

Is the second coming imminent or could it be that the theological predictions are no more than a melodramatic description of the old adage that: 'The darkest hour always comes before the dawn'?

Tory Party Attack Lionesses

 Yesterday the Conservative member  for Louth & Horncastle, Victoria Atkins, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Safeguarding, memorably humbled the former leader of Her Majesty's Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn.

"I suspect I am not the only person who has felt a little bit astonished that it is this right honourable member who’s chosen to ask that question about taking immediate action to tackle racism…I am also reminded that a Jewish female MP had to have police protection at his party conference because of fears for her own safety. So I will listen to many, many people about tackling racism. I will work with pretty much anyone. But I must say, I will take a long spoon on which to sup with this particular member.”

Her assured performances at the despatch box, matched by those of Penny Mordaunt, the MP for Portsmouth North, ( see: make these two women the Tory Party's attack lionesses, far superior to anybody in the Labour Party or any others. I can see both of these ladies holding high offices of State.

Racism in football

Following the European CHampionship football tournament, there has been widespread outrage at online racist comments against black English footballers. This is regrettable but might have been anticipated. The British public by and large are a tolerant and friendly people but as in many other spheres they are sick to the back teeth of minorities of all colours parading their differences at every opportunity. Taking the kneee at one match might have been a moving gesture but ahead of every match becomes a political issue especially as it was an American, Black Lives Matter, routine. The same applies to Gay Pride marches, rainbow armbands and flags. As a group these people have suffered and have been discriminated against but even they must understand that enough is enough; that people don't want it rammed down their throats.

It has to be understood that all people around the world have a hard-wired inclination to be wary of strangers, preferring the company of family, colleagues and community first. Historically, those who do not fit the mould, including the disabled and insane are vulnerable to discrimination. Even in black communities, albino children were not only killed but ritually so.

Also, inter-tribal killings in Africa, up to the present time, demonstrates a racism far in excess of what we see in the UK today.

I've heard it said that children are not born racist but I suggest that this is simply not true. Every child inherits besides the DNA of its parents but also the character of an ancestor. Depending on who this character was the child could be totally racist, totally amiable and every shade in between, ready to be moulded by the nurturing process.

This parochial feeling persists to this day in many communities, including religious groups, despite the advances of science and civilisation, largely antagonised by uncontrolled economic immigration and a report that 90% of all knife crime in London is committed by black people. The same report said that 74% of people awaiting trial in London were black despite being only 17% of the population.

That the perceived racists are pilloried today is fueling a backlash which is made manifest by this latest outburst of racism on social media.

Sanctity of Life bollocks

 Two sisters were found dead recently, victims of a frenzied knife attack by one Danyal Hussein. He had contracted a blood trade with the devil according to which he would kill women in order to win the lottery.

Now, tell me one good reason why this man should survive when two fun loving, law abiding girls have their life brutally ended and their family should suffer a lifetime of grief and misery? Just one? It's no good offering me the 'sanctity of life' answer as it meant absolutely nothing to the perpetrator. A life in prison means a lifelong obligation to feed, clothe roof and provide healthcare at the taxpayer's expense making them victims too. NO! Execute the man and offer the opportunity to pull the trigger to one of the relatives. 

Who wants to share the planet with one such as Hussein and others like him? WHO? 

Bring back the death penalty for such heinous murders.

Creeping allure of Socialism

 An item in the blog, Guido Fawkes highlights a trend in the UK young that ought to set alarm bells ringing.

It brought to mind the old adage about great families: that one generation built the wealth, the second enjoyed it and the third, squandered it. Does this apply to Countries and perhaps, Empires.

The UK has certainly grown since the second world war, the UK has not been under direct threat (ignoring the IRA), businesses have grown, the population are living longer (Ignoring covid) and the arts are flourishing. (Again ignoring covid). Before covid we might have been excused for thinking that we lived in a golden age.

Then came wokism and the idea that all that created the new world was based on racism and misogyny; that we should be ashamed of any nationalism, embarrassed by our history and it was, therefore, our duty to adhere to 'diversity' and 'levelling up'.

This report suggests that the next generation, ignorant of the price of socialism, will fritter away not only the wealth of the nation but also its good name, There will be no army nor police to protect from anarchy. No meat will be eaten by command of the eco-warriors and power will be rationed as wind turbines fall still in the changed climate. The austere life will not be lightened by comedy for fear of offending nor can solace be found in Churches too cowed by minorities to follow the teachings of their Gods. Ambition and advancement will be dirty words suggesting that some are better than others; that we are not born equal. Science must be fettered lest it arrests the race to the bottom as the truth only counts if it fits the woke agenda.

I could go on but it is too depressing to contemplate. Let us hope that a whiff of common sense will fall on the Government and the young of today are made aware of their duty and contribution to society by hard work, honesty, thrift and pride in their Country. It should be a case of: 'not what can the nation do for me but, rather, what can I do for the Nation'.

UFOs and aliens

 The US defence agency has admitted to a dossier on so far unidentified flying objects for which they can offer no explanation. Many, around the world, see this as vindication for widely held belief that such craft had been observed and were likely manned by 'aliens'.

Almost all the theories propose that these 'aliens come from other solar systems but I suggest that the answer may be closer to home and that they are not necessarily masters of space travel but of trans-dimensional travel..

To understand this it is necessary to imagine that spacetime as we are aware of it, where all aspects are positive, has two other aspects, a negative and imaginary. The Davies Hypothesis, see: 

explains the basis for this new reality but here I shall just assume the existence of another side to our universe where dimensions adopt a negative value. This is not the negative as in a one dimensional line showing positive at one end; this universe must be considered as acting at right angles to the universe we exist in. This means that normally we cannot trespass into our sister universe without the knowledge to travel between dimensions.

What does this universe look like? Everything would probably be strange but the important thing is that gravity would still forge large scale structures because all matter would be attractive because the force of gravity is positive.

Normally G ~ f (m1*m2)/r^2.   In our sister universe:  G ~ f(-m1 * -m2)/r^2.

In other words, suns would be formed and their attendant planets, which may be able to support life.

Could it be that aliens have been crossing the dimensional divide and entering our side of our dual universe without having to cover vast distances at near the speed of light. To do this their technology would necessarily be more advanced than ours.
