Sinclaire dodges simple questions

Nikki Sinclaire is a Member of the European Parliament for the West Midlands. She was elected as a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party in June 2009. Sadly, in January 2010, just months after being elected, she turned her back on the voters of the West Midlands and resigned from Europe of Freedom and Democracy, the European Parliament Party to which UKIP belongs. She claimed the group harboured 'racist' views, despite the assurances of popular UKIP leader, Nigel Farage. This was despite the fact her Parliamentary Advisor at the time, Gary Cartwright had unrenounced involvement in the far-right, having previously been a candidate and organiser for the far-right radical National Democrats. Mr Cartwright was also a regular contributor to the holocaust denialist Focal Point website. Mr Cartwright also maintanied an active association with the Springbok Club, which The Independent described as 'racist'.
She subsequently claimed 'sex discrimination' on the part of Mr Farage and the UK Independence Party. On 22 February 2012, Ms Sinclaire was arrested 'on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament'. She now sits in the European Parliament as a 'Non-Inscrit' or 'Non-Attached'. Most Non-Inscrits are 'far-right'. Some current far-right Non-Iscrit national parties: National Front France, British National Party, National Union Attack Hungary, Greater Romania Party and Jobik. These parties have been described as Neo-Nazi, Fascist, anti-Semitic, anti-Hungarian, anti-roma, racist, sexist and homophobic.

So, several days ago I sent the MEP a Tweet.
She responded by saying I was 'sadly misinformed'.

Her claim of not being grouped with anyone is simply ridiculous. She sits with all those people I mentioned above. She then decided the best thing to do would be to simply block me. I didn't abuse her, I just asked a simple question. She is too gutless to respond with a proper answer. If she had even the slightest integrity, she would resign as a MEP and give her seat to UKIP.

Cancer Council fascists want to control what you eat

The Cancer Council Victoria may be well-meaning. But the latest 'survey' they have released makes for disturbing reading.
The study makes some rather frightening claims:
  • 87% of those surveyed would support 'colour-coded packing' on food
  • 83% supported a ban on advertising junk foods during popular children's programmes
  • 87% supported government regulation of food companies to reduce the fat, sugar and salt content of processed foods
  • 89% supported restricting junk food advertising on websites
  • 71% supported a 'fat tax' on 'junk' food - with the money 'used to make healthy food more affordable'
Inviting the Nanny State to regulate what we eat and how much it costs is a truly outrageous proposal. It reeks of authoritarianism and fascism. I know a charity I certainly won't be supporting in the future.

Mitt Romney causes trouble in London

US Republican Presidential hopeful visited London last week; and boy did he make a fool of himself. So much so that The Sun labelled Governor Romney 'Mitt The Twit'.The Sun newspaper on Friday 27 July 2012
Governor Romney's gaffes:
  • Appearing to forget the name of Labour Leader Ed Miliband during a joint press conference and refering to him as 'Mr Leader'
  • Remarking that he had received a briefing from M16 - against protocol
  • Labelling preparations surrounding the London games 'disconcerting' resulting in British PM David Cameron commenting 'Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere' apparently in reference to Governor Romney's management of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter olympics.
  • Romney campaign official blasts Conservative Mayor of London Boris Johnson as 'eccentic, odd fellow' who's 'unbecoming attack' on Governor Romney was an 'indication of his bias towards President Obama' - absurd considering Mr Johnson is one of the most important politicians in the UK and cannot even vote in the US Presidential election
