Support our petition to ban Halal slaughter in Britain. The practice of slaughtering animals for religious purposes is both draconian and barbaric and it is only ‘religious sensitivity’ from our politicians that has prevent Halal meat from being banned.

The EU is now making moves, through a new directive, that would effectively quash net neutrality. Net neutrality covers three core principles which allows the internet to remain free and open. Destroying net neutrality will deny you your democratic rights to access free and open information. Don’t let this happen.
£100 Million BBC IT Disaster Lord Patten Attempts to Hide
£100 MILLION BBC IT DISASTER LORD PATTEN ATTEMPTS TO HIDE – The Chairman of the BBC Lord Patten again came under attack last night after his attempts to block a secret report on the disastrous IT project that was to see BBC archives being digitised.
Auditors from PricewaterhouseCoppers (PWC) are expected to release what is little more than a damning report to the waste of yet another £100 million of licence fee payer’s money.
Once again the competency of management at the BBC will be drawn into question with many who feel it’s time that the BBC was stripped of its Royal Charter and commericalised.
Such a move would prevent the BBC from being able to demand money from the British taxpayer and would ultimately force the BBC to compete in the open market place; yes that converted monopoly, that affords the likes of Lord Patten to a lucrative salary will no longer be suffered by members of the public.
Of course when a free lunch is on offer, the likes of Lord Patten will do whatever it takes to secure his position and remuneration and therefore he continues to frustrate auditors with his attempts to cover up the truth of just how much senior management at the BBC knew about this debacle.
Yesterday the Guardian (see article) published an article on how Lord Patten has vetoed the release of the report under the Freedom of Information Act – yes it is once again openly declared that there is a vast divided between the taxpayer and those in the halls of power.
According to Tory MP Rob Wilson, he feels that Lord Patten was making a ‘dreadful mistake’ in his attempts to cover up more of the BBC’s failing; especially at a time when public criticism of how the BBC is operated is at an all time high.
Lord Patten’s refusal to divulge the truth comes as no surprise after his performance in the recent Public Accounts Committee (PAC) hearing in which he treated panel member’s questions, and therefore the public, with little more than disdain and contempt – yes Lord Patten is a man who obviously feels he and the senior management at the BBC are above and beyond reproach from the mere licence fee payer.
It’s time that the British public demanded a higher standard from those who are handsomely paid out of the public purse. Lord Patten should not only be relieved of his position as Chairman of the BBC but he should also be subjected to being stripped of his life peerage.
The British public should no longer tolerate people like Lord Patten who thinks that our opinions are invalid or inconsequential. We simply should no longer accept that people like Lord Patten should be able to treat those who pay him with disdain – no commercial entity in the world would allow Lord Patten to act in such a way which results in the loss of millions of pounds and allow him to retain his position.
Britain has become a mere shell of its former self; we have become a society of ‘entitlement’ and one that openly shrugs off the dirty and underhanded dealings by the likes of Lord Patten for their own financial again.
It is time for a change, it’s time to hold the likes of Lord Patten accountable and it’s time to strip the BBC of its Royal Charter that effective allows the BBC to steal from the taxpayer.
If what Lord Patten demonstrates is a sign of the times, then it’s time we took down the Union Jack and handed Britain lock, stock and barrel over to the non-elected despot dictators in the EU for our politicians and officials have clearly sunk to a depth of nonchalance that can’t possibly do any more damage to Britain than those in the EU.
Prime Minister cuts taxpayers expense further by removing the police officer guarding No.10 Downing Street at the weekends. If this is Cameron’s idea of austerity then their really is no hope for the UK under his leadership.
Heather Frost – Now this has to be the most ungrateful person living on welfare. With 11 children and grandchildren, and after the council is building her a home she is still not satisfied.
It was an interesting question and one that causes so much controversy… Why do Muslims move West when our culture and religion is so offensive? Here we example the issues and a possible answer to peace.
