Why UKIP isn’t the one for us

“Perhaps if they did they would be better able to tackle us on policy, rather than having to rely on smear campaigns to try to undermine UKIP’s increasing popularity.

Were we to return the favour we would find an even greater wealth of embarrassment and disgrace in the other three parties’ ranks to also spread across the media.” – UKIP

Bear Grylls – Women in the Woods

Bear Grylls has a new show in the making and it’s got women a bit hacked off.

The Island Of Lost Blokes will see 12 hardy souls join Grylls in trying to survive on a desert island using just their instincts and ingenuity.

12 Hardy Man Souls that is. Channel 4 didn’t quite think women would be up to the challenge or be willing to participate. [Read more…]

Female Genital Mutilation – A Nuanced Look at the First Trial

Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena is one of the first people to be charged in the UK under a landmark case allowing for the prosecution of people involved in aiding and abetting the crime of female genital mutilation.

Female Genital Mutilation is not a good practice. I have long stood against it. However I have had issues with the UK’s laws with regards to Female Genital Mutilation. Doctors were told to fight the practice with little or no training or worse? No idea of how to deal with children at risk.

The point is? We don’t want to take children away from parents. We don’t want young girls to get cut. We also don’t want parents to not bring their kids to see the doctor for fear of being arrested.

But that being said? Prosecutions need to occur. [Read more…]

An Example of Islamophobia

“I’m being bullied at school because of my race and religion. They call me a terrorist because they know I’m Muslim. I’ve lost my temper a few times – it really frustrates me because then I end up getting in trouble. Some of my friends stick up for me, but it’s not enough, I want the teachers to do something but they always tell me they’re too busy.”

You can’t be racist against Islam, it’s not a race!  [Read more…]

But We Want Gender Segregation

There is a line between Islamophobia and genuine criticism. The problem is Islam doesn’t take criticism well. In response to criticism Islam tends to label ALL criticism as Islamophobic.


Let’s take the usual one. There is a rising problem with radicalisation of young Muslims and a fetishisation of Jihad alongside a literal translation of Islam. To many Muslims the reaction is “All Muslims are Terrorists”. There is an unwillingness to listen to reasonable criticism and ignoring genuine problems and tarring all criticism as racism or islamophobic. [Read more…]

When Human Rights Goes Too Far

The European Court of Human Rights has lost its legitimacy in the UK by doing things that frankly the people of this country and their elected representatives do not want.

“This is not an issue that unites the Coalition. The Conservative Party’s intention is to go into the next election with an absolutely clear plan for change.

“And it is absolutely clear Parliament has the sovereign right to implement that change.

“We have been looking at a number of options, of which leaving the Convention is one.

“It’s not the only option we are considering and we will be bringing forward plans in the next few weeks.

“Later next year we will publish a draft Bill which will set out precisely how that legal change will take place.

“We will have a clear plan for reform which we will implement in government if we are successful at the ­election.”

– Chris Grayling, Justice Secretary of the UK

There are no words to how disappointing and how dangerous this idea is. [Read more…]
