Save babies or kill them?

Tomorrow, my prayers will be with Conservative MP Nadine Dorries and her colleagues as they vote on her amendment to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. The intention of the amendment is to reduce the upper time limit for abortions. It is clear that babies can survive when born prematurely below the current limit of 24 weeks: it is grotesquely evil to permit these babies to be murdered, as the law currently permits.

Dawn Primarolo, not the most intellectual of MPs, has attacked Nadine and her supporters, claiming that "If they are being honest, they are saying they don't like abortion." This quote sums up one of the things I most despise about New Labour. No one likes abortion, unless they are a psychopath. Most people believe it is justified sometimes and along a very wide continuum they disagree about when those occasions are. However, this is not enough for the socialists. They want to nanny us: it is not enough to respect others' points of view, we have to like what they say. Unless we agree to detach our brains, we are considered to be evil bigots. It is the same motive as exists behind the ludicrous concept of 'hate crime'.

I find it intriguing, that the sort of lefties who most support abortion are often the ones who most oppose corporal or capital punishment. So, in their warped view of the world, it is perfectly accetable to murder babies, but not to punish criminals. Ho hum.

Idiots say cannabis is harmless...

Then try to explain this story. A young Texan guy with cannabis in his pocket tried to cash a cheque for $36 BILLION, from the account of his girlfriend's mother. Have the drugs addled his brain, or is it possible for a human being to be quite that stupid? Even Robert Maxwell didn't get away with quite that much.

High-powered crime

Sometimes, I just like a funny story of human endeavour. Anyhoo, I loved this one about a man in San Francisco who attempted to steal electrical wires by cutting through 12,000 volt power lines. By a miracle, he appears not to have been killed instantly, but almost certainly has severe burns.

'Tough on Crime' - what a sick joke.

When New Labour swept to power in 1997, they did so promising to be 'Tough on Crime, Tough on the Causes of Crime'. In the event, they have done neither. Predictably enough, the 'causes' were the usual socialist nonsense about 'deprived' people needing money thrown at them. ONE AND A QUARTER TRILLION POUNDS of ADDITIONAL expenditure since then has been funded by our taxes; by flogging off the country's gold reserves and by government borrowing.

What do we have to show for it? A country where the underclass is growing. They are not deprived in any material sense, whatever the socialists might argue. They ARE deprived in a moral sense. Generations of families who have never done a day's work in their lives; families where children are raised without a father figure; where single mothers have children by several men; where there is no respect for authority.

The underclass will continue to breed like rabbits because they see no reason not to. They know their rights: they have no sense of responsibility. They really believe that it is everyone else's duty to pay up to keep them in their idleness. They think this because it is not PC any more to suggest there is anything wrong with depraved lifestyles. Labour will not discourage them, because feckless, amoral morons will vote Labour as reliably as they will cash and spend their Giros.

An excellent article in the Daily Mail this week reports on the rise of girl gangs. In the featured story, one fat piece of filth tried to murder an old lady by throwing her into traffic. Of course, she and her pals cannot be named because they are 'under age'. Their victim enjoyed no such protection, of course.

The punishment? To attend a course in 'anger management' and to keep out of trouble for 12 months. What is the course in anger management supposed to achieve? She wasn't ANGRY when she committed this offence. It was committed out of sheer evil. As long as she complies with the referral order, her condition will be considered to be 'spent' by the end of it. So, future employers, schools (she is still only 14, so will be returning to school) etc will not need to be informed that someone in their midst tried to murder a defenceless old lady.

It is time the law was changed so that creatures like this are not protected. If it is a SERIOUS offence, a juvenile should have no more right to anonymity than an adult offender. Name and shame them. They should also have no right to special treatment. This offence SHOULD have resulted in a conviction for attempted murder that would NEVER be 'spent'. It should need to be confessed until her dying day. She should spend a LONG time behind bars.

I would go further. We need a zero tolerance approach in this country. Put violent and repeat offenders into chain gangs like they do in parts of the US. Humiliate them. Show them that the law in this country is on the side of decent people, not scum.

To say 'stupid Socialist'...

is to repeat oneself. BUT. this gem from the Daily Mirror takes the biscuit.

The Mirror lazily repeats one of Labour's attempts to 'smear' Edward Timpson, the Conservative candidate in Crewe & Nantwich. Labour's main tactic has been to attack Timpson for allegedly being a 'toff'; one claim being that repeated by the Mirror - that some of his supporters were spotted driving a Bentley. The Bentley factory being located in, er, Crewe.

Tamsin Dunwoody, the Labour candidate, has described Timpson as 'some rich Tory kid who probably hasn't even been to Crewe station'. Ms Dunwoody has undoubtedly been to Crewe station - it is a long journey from her home in Wales, after all.

According to today's Sunday Express, the Crewe & Nantwich Labour Party has been told to bin the campaign because the comrades in London are finding it embarrassing.
