Thor Halvorssen: United Nations: It's Okay to Kill the Gay

The United Nations are not 'united' and many nations are just tribes led by demogogues. The UN have let down so many peoples around the World by their ineptitude, partisanship and ineffectiveness ! Civilisation, the West, meets uncivilised, tribal, religious zealots  the World over !

Isn't it about time 'we', in the civilised 'West', left this useless bunch of crooks and stopped all aid ! Why should our taxes support the filth of the World ! Without our aid to support these ghastly, intolerant regimes, maybe they will fall. Yes my views are general and maybe over the top, but tell me just what use is the United Nations ? Corrupt, wasteful, useless. Anyone agree ?

Scrap the NHS as it is. Let hospitals run as their own authority, as they were pre 1974, when they were closer to GPs and other practitioners. Then make them all independent. Introduce compulsory health insurance. Restore the direct financial and service link between GPs, hospitals and patients. Transfer social services into a new body jointly accountable to GPs and hospitals.

Interesting comment on oil spill actions

Response to Yahoo News regarding oil spill
BigAl
To those of you who seem upset about this mess in the Gulf not being a Democrat vs. Republican issue, may I ask if you've forgotten Katrina? Have you forgotten how the Dems vilified Bush for that? Katrina was one massive storm, that affected three states, displacing millions of people, destroying hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses, etc. Here, we have one oil well, which admittedly has given challenges never seen prior to this. One well. A Gulf full of oil. By day 3, 17 nations had volunteered their help. The Obama administration said no thanks. And here we are, day 75. The oil's still gushing, and finally, the largest ship in the world to help to clean up the mess has just arrived. So before you tie any outrage on, kindly remember what was done to Bush in a massively larger catastrophe, and have a sense of perspective. Bush in a massively larger catastrophe, and have a sense of perspective.

Toyota's reputation gets worse !

From Yahoo - Top story Toyota plans to recall 270,000 vehicles worldwide to fix faulty engines. Flaws in the valve springs can make a vehicle stall while it's moving, Toyota spokesman Hideaki Homma said. Although the carmaker has received hundreds of complaints about the problem, no accidents or injuries have been reported. been reported. The global recall begins on July 5, and is expected to affect the popular Crown sedan and seven Lexus models (GS 350, GS 450h, GS 460, IS 350, LS 460, LS 600h and LS 600hl). One Japanese newspaper said the recall could said the recall could cost Toyota up to $228 million, or $844 per car. Since last September, Toyota has recalled more than 10 million vehicles, mostly for potential unintended halted sales and recalled about 17,000 Lexus HS 250h hybrid 250h hybrid sedans due to a potential fuel leak.

Regulate English ?

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/education/article7145147.ece

I like my language UK English but,  apart from the proper school teaching of grammar (which if bad is down to poor teaching and disinterested parents) with the availability of information for purists, to regulate it will interfere with the whole evolution of this World language.  All the nuances,  differences and spellings in use around the World, such as in examples of American and Australian English, surely ADD to evolution.  We don't want a 'dead' language !

Stephen Fry is right to criticise any regulation. Proper English and grammar needs to be taught at school, those who stick with it are not to be criticised any more than those who evolve new colourful and slang English to add to our wonderful language.

It was obvious to many that PFI was a complete scam on the taxpayer and also with the the private sector free-for-all infiltration of government, all of this has just removed full civil service and local government control of public finances for years in various areas of expenditure. Contactors should be just that, contracted to provide not manage services.

This is a great article whatever one thinks, it has a Britain logic about it !

Start a Twitter # trend

I am sick of British politicians using churches,  Brown today,  hospitals,  schools and workplaces for politics.

They should use public halls and shopping centres.

Start a Twitter trend and show we don't want the condescending bastards in 'our' places !

RT @Colin1949: Brown in a church. Anyone else think all of them using backdrops of hospitals, schools and workplaces is morally decrepit ? #nopoliticshere

From Al Gore's blog


An Early Spring According to Reuters:"Spring comes about 10 days earlier in the United States than it did two decades ago, a consequence of climate change that favors invasive species over indigenous ones, scientists said on Tuesday.""The phenomenon known as "spring creep" has put various species of U.S. wildlife out of balance with their traditional habitats, from the rabbit-like American pika in the West to the roses and lilies in New England, the environmental experts said in a telephone news briefing."

Haiti Earthquake

This again (click link below) shows that the UN lives in another World, it is a disorganisation.  Remember when UN troops left people to be massacred.  They waste taxpayers money and this is the result.

Colin1949 Again the UN is just useless - Security concerns cause doctors to leave hospital, quake victims - http://bit.ly/6UHvpb #cnn

America and other countries are, again, doing the work needed.  Time to scrap the UN ???

UK snow - roads and pavements

As suing the UK government is unlikely following the snow fiasco, will those injured and affected by travel disruption sue local authorities for the state of the roads and pavements ? The cry of 'it only happens once in a. . .' (add as many years as you like) cannot be accepted any more.

What exactly does the British taxpayer, motoring, individual and corporate, expect from government, local and central, in regards to infrastructure maintenance ? What should the commuter expect for their expensive yet poor train and bus services ?

Perhaps companies could sue for loss of income due to staff being unable to get to work and insurance companies for payments caused by accidents resulting from road conditions. Surely not an 'act of God' !
