if the so called government (Westminster) wants them - park them in the Thames.

I went on a boat trip up the river with me mum and dad in a freezing cold July day in 1961 when I was 10. I took a photo of the Polaris stuff with my Brownie 127 and spent the rest of the holiday shit scared of being arrested for treason.

How long have we been without a sub on active service?
Seems to me that perhaps we don't need them anyway and all we need is to convince others that we have them. Pity then about the leaked info that they are all in dock for repair. We could save billions by simply expounding a myth.

Raggytash, maybe you should have provided that link in the OP. I had no idea what you were on about.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph doesn't strike me as 'world-class' source material. They also frame the headline in the form of a denial. MOD could be denying that little pink men landed their spaceship in Trafalgar Square, for instance.

And if I were the MOD I would not be providing any information I did not have to regarding disposition of military assets.

There is of course the question of what military assets are worth having. I'm unaware of the UK's sea resources. Obviously the British Navy has been a consequential military presence for hundreds of years. It would naturally include submarines. The need for nukes must have been a deeply considered item.

I remember how the lack of adequate Aircraft Carrier resources impacted the Falklands War. I believe the US helped.

Jim C - when I was young (but old enough to drink!) 'ladies' were expected to go to hotel lounges in the company of other ladies (all wearing skirts of course, never trousers!) or a male escort. Entering a bar was out of the question! - As students a group of us would journey along Rose St (Edinburgh)trying to get served in every pub along the way - and being refused in most as they 'didn't serve females' -- when asked why the - usually female bar tender - would explain they had no ladies' toilet! We would counter that we didn't require the toilet -- to no avail. There were even coffee lounges in Glasgow that were reserved for men/business men only- - - no women! Unbelievable nowadays. I began striding into these premises (bars, coffee exclusion zones) on my own (which was unheard of!) and being assertive, sometimes verging on aggressive in order to get service. (And don't get me started about how a female needed a male guarantor in order to get a mortgage back in the olden days of the 60s and early 70s - -- )

Steve S - we used to go on Easter Vigil events and Women's Peace marches to the US base, sign a peace petition or lie down on the road opposite the end of the pier. MI whatever would be at the upstairs windows taking our photos- and we would be taking theirs! Sadly this was long before mobile phones / internet / social media .....

PS Waverley has some Summer trips up Loch Long - and if it gets a little too close to the Faslane side of the loch the police launches whizz out and buzz about her!

If anyone plans to revisit the Holy Loch area (US Navy long gone!)and wants to have a wee sing song of Ding Dong Dollar and the like, give me and Akhenaton a shout! We'll round up a few of the Glesca Eskimos for a session!!

Well, Gallus Moll, I went on a good few peace marches meself, mainly to US air bases, and Mrs Steve surrounded Greenham (along with thousands of other women!) one night in 1983. Lucky bugger - she chose the hottest night of the 20th century so she didn't even need her cardie! I have photos of my two kids wearing mole masks at Molesworth, and, though we don't know how it happened, our little son, who we'd temporarily lost, managed to walk at the head of the demo alongside Anne Clwyd! I had an estate car at the time (station wagon, yanks) and I loaded it up with logs for firewood to take to the women's camps at Greenham. They were very suspicious of a man helping out and I actually found that quite humbling.

In the early 80s I used to help out on the CND stall in Loughton, Essex, where we lived at the time. Every Saturday morning we were filmed from the top of a building opposite our stall, and my phone was bugged (nothing subtle about it in those days - lots of clunks and clicks on the line and the sound of a sudden hanging-up if you swore at the spooks!) 😂

"With Donald Trump at the helm of the American Ship of State, I hope you Brits keep your submarines in good repair"
That occurred to me last night when I watched the news report of Trump's reaction to the news that North Korea had tested a weapon - very reminiscent of The Cuban Crisis.
I guess that the Doomsday Clock shifted towards midnight a few points over the last few weeks.

"all our nuclear deterrent submarines are not being very deterrent at the moment"

Factually incorrect as our "deterrent submarines", the Vanguard-Class SSBNs are in their normal operational cycle with one boat at sea on patrol at all times.

The submarines the reports are about are the Astute-Class SSNs of which only three of a Class of seven are in service, the others are still in construction. The Lib-Dems wanted to trim the SSBN Fleet to only three submarines, now IF and it is a very big IF indeed, reports are true regarding our SSNs happen to be true then there is no better argument for illustrating the need for four new SSBNs going.

Not really Raggy

"Our nuclear deterrent submarines" - Wrong

Plain in even the earliest reports the submarines being talked about were our newest Astute-class boats but that still leaves the RN's Trafalgar-Class SSNs.

So c'mon Raggy explain to us all how laying out facts can in any way be described as "clutching at straws"

Best stick to your wild flowers and your diet.

Frankly Terrikins I couldn't give a damn. I just like the thought of you and your chums quaking in your beds because we has no nuclear deterrent.

The article was written in the Telegraph, surely you believe them, the Daily Mail also covered it, don't you believe them?

It was even on Sky News that paragon of truth.

"were expected to go to hotel lounges in the company of other ladies "
Missed this G.M.
I have a wonderful memory of our march to Holy Loch passing a roadside pub on a very warm day

Anyway back to Orchids. Last year we rented a house at Claddaghduff, on the Aughrus Peninsula. Looking out of the window one morning I noticed a purple spike coming from the lawn. On closer inspection is turned out to be a Marsh Fragrant Orchid and then I noticed there was not just one but dozens of them strewn across the lawn.

In searching for a photograph I came across a wonderful blog site which details flowers and birds across Galway, Clare and Mayo.

When things are getting tedious I will share some of them with you.

That's right Raggy with one boat on patrol they can play eeny, meeny, miny, moe to pick out at least 48 targets, and that is with only half the tubes loaded - load all 16 tubes and that target list goes up to 192.

Only part of us is sane: only part of us loves pleasure and the longer day of happiness, wants to live to our nineties and die in peace, in a house that we built, that shall shelter those who come after us. The other half of us is nearly mad. It prefers the disagreeable to the agreeable, loves pain and its darker night despair, and wants to die in a catastrophe that will set back life to its beginnings and leave nothing of our house save its blackened foundations.

[Rebecca West, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon]


President Truman to the officers of the Augusta, reported in the Times on 7 August 1945: The experiment has been an overwhelming success.

The same paper the next day:

The fundamental power of the universe, the power manifested in the sunshine that has been recognised as the sustaining force of earthly life, is entrusted at last to human hands.

Daily Express, 10 August 1981:

The neutron weapon is for Western Europe today what the English longbow was for Henry V and his army at Agincourt in 1415.

"The Left has always opposed Nuclear Weapons, whoever has them - it's on record" - Jom

Well good ol Clem Attlee and Ernest Bevin were 100% behind the UK having them Jom?

Clement Attlee revered on the left as the father of the NHS and the welfare state. What a pity Jom forgot his role as the father of Britain's nuclear bomb. All done in secret Jom no reference to Parliament.

"The answer to an atomic bomb on London is an atomic bomb on another great city," - Clement Attlee 22 days after Hiroshima

Ernest Bevin: "We've got to have this thing over here, whatever it costs," foreign secretary, and former trade union leader, Ernest Bevin, is reported to have told one committee.
"We've got to have the bloody Union Jack on top of it."


Aneurin Bevan: 1957 he surprised supporters by hitting back at calls for Britain to get rid of it nuclear weapons by telling that year's party conference the unilateralists were gripped by an "an emotional spasm" that would send a future Labour foreign secretary "naked into the conference chamber".

Then of course every Labour Party Manifesto has stated that the Party would retain our nuclear deterrent and every Labour Government has voted to keep our nuclear deterrent.

From that then the only conclusion that can be drawn is that the Labour Party must have nothing whatsoever to do with the "Left" Jom. In which case why have all you "lefties" been voting for them?

Attlee and Bevan were both men with many flaws. I don't even make the excuse that they were simply "of their time," so let's just say that they espoused non-PC views that would have modern-day lefties horrified. But they did give us the NHS and they did set this country on the road to post-war recovery. As for going naked into the conference chamber, read this:

AN IMMODEST PROPOSAL

In 1957 at the Labour Party's debate on disarmament, Aneurin Bevan declared that he was not prepared to 'go naked into the conference chamber'. It is a phrase which has been echoed by Tory and Labour defence spokesmen alike; something similar was said at the Liberal Party conference in September 1981. But what was it that Bevan had to hide? Bevan came into the world naked, and naked he left it. Why should he have been afraid to go naked into the conference chamber to discuss matters of global life and death? What he had to hide, as much from himself as from his adversaries, was nothing less than his humanity.

Of course, by the rules of the game he had to hide it. For no naked human being, conscious of his own essential ordinariness, the chairseat pressing against his buttocks, his toes wriggling beneath the conference table, his penis hanging limply a few feet from Mr Andropov's, could possibly play the game of international politics and barter like a god with the lives of millions of his fellow men. No naked human being could threaten to press the nuclear button.

So I come to my proposal. Our leaders must be given no choice but to go naked into the conference chamber. At the United Nations General Assembly, at the Geneva disarmament negotiations, at the next summit in Moscow or in Washington, there shall be a notice pinned to the door: 'Reality gate. Human beings only beyond this point. NO Clothes.' And then, as the erstwhile iron maiden takes her place beside the erstwhile bionic commissar, it may dawn on them that neither she nor he is made of iron or steel, but rather of a warmer, softer and much more magical material, flesh and blood. Perhaps as Mr Andropov looks at his navel and realises that he, like the rest of us, was once joined from there to a proud and aching mother, as Mrs Thatcher feels the table-cloth tickling her belly, they will start to laugh at their pretensions to be superhuman rulers of the lives of others. If they do not actually make love they will, at least, barely be capable of making war.

Well you were applying 1940s and1950s thinking to modern situations so where's yer beef? Do you really think that a 1940s leftie, dusting himself or herself down after two bloody wars, is the same thing as a 2017 leftie? Had Attlee been around today he might have been thrown out of the party for blatant sexism. He turned into a hardline Cold War warrior before the end of his first term and was a patriotic Empire golden-age little Englander. And I see nothing whatsoever dated in Humphreys' piece. You don't get to dismiss it so easily. It's a piece of whimsy, all right, but out of whimsy can come forth reflection. Instead, you see who's posted and immediately focus on the next pejorative you can dredge up.

Your loutish behaviour does not hide either your ignorance nor your dishonesty
Your lateest (carefully unlinked) claim about the left supporting nuclear weapons - "Well good ol Clem Attlee and Ernest Bevin were 100% behind the UK having them Jom?" underlines my point.
It is taken from a article that points out that despite the admiration of the left for Atlee (Bevin could never in a million years have been described as "left") his stance on nuclear weapons was in total opposition to that of the left
As I said - THE LEFT have always opposed nuclear weapons despite the actions of some politicians.

Despite your assertions, Brexit will not give Britain independence from anybody - the only change it will bring about will be who Britain is dependent on.
We will continue to fill our sops with goods manufactured by near slave labour in conditions it would be illegal to keep animals in - creating conditions fit for terrorist to thrive from.
We will continue to sell weapons to monsters who profit from these societies.
We weill now become dependent on Trump - hence May's undignified scramble to kiss his arse.
Trumps belligerent racism towards Muslim nations has already nudged the Doomsday clock up another couple of notches and the fact that he is in trall to Russia has added yet another genocidal war in the Ukraine to our collection.

"British workers are not allowed to seek employment in Europe?"
When Brexit is resolved, British workers will no longer be able to freely seek work in Europe, as I understand it.
"Currently EU workers are entitled to: travel across an open border; recognition of their professional qualifications; take up employment without restriction; be treated equally and without discrimination based on nationality; access healthcare both where they live and where they work; and access, and occasionally export, social welfare payments based on their EU record of social insurance contributions."
This is quite likely to disappear with Brexit - at the very least, this is what has been put at risk.
There is no reason whatever that Britain should be afforded any benefits not enjoyed by any other nation on the planet.
As I said - not independence, just who we are dependent on

Do you think a country with no industry and no prospects of fulfilling its obligation to provide sufficient work for its people is wise in taking such a risk.
I repeat - there is no reason why the E.U. should grant privileges to a non - member State - why should it - what has Britain to offer in return (other than a promise that they will lock Nigel Farage in The Tower maybe!!).
Brexit was won on a 'controlling immigration' ticket.
One of the key requirements of any economy is that it should be stable
Economists reckon that the British economy will remain unstable for at least ten years and even then, there is no indication of at what level it will stabalise.
Do you not see how I find it impossible to take the whole shambles of Brexit, from its rise in racist incidents to a ******* up economy, at face value?

Nuclear protection, if it were available, would be welcome. But it doesn't exist - all we've got are nuclear weapons, which are the reverse.

Up till now the main danger from the existence has been of some kind of accident or of a fatal misunderstanding, since no sane leader would launch a nuclear war. The trouble now is that the sanity of the leader with the largest nuclear arsenal is very questionable indeed.

So if we have so little to sell to the EU, why do we need access to their market?
If they have so much to sell to us, they need access to our market, and, as such, access to their market would be a suitable quid pro quo.
Asking whether the British firms would stand for it is pointless. It is highly unlikely that it will ever happen because, under the same argument, the EU firms would not stand for it.

Of course the problem parties have existed long before Trump - that is not the point
Up to recently they have been regarded as fringe parties and have appealed ony to the extreme - the rejection of BNP and the fringe nature of Ukip are typical of how they were regarded
The possibilities of them being taken seriously have accelerated with the advent of the Brexit mob and the election of Trump due to the use of scapegoat populism - the blaming of immigrants and refugees for the nation's problems.
Trump has been quick to take advantage of the tactic - he has latched on to Russia for support, LePen has been photographed at Trump Tower and yesterday he tore up the One State solution to win over Netunyahu as a supporter - right-wing extremists all.
The extreme right are coming into their own - one is in the White House (and the British PM was first to genuflect and kiss his arse).

The EU Commission ignored him in order to push their own ideological goals and the result has been that they have destroyed the economies of the southern/Mediterranean member states - Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Spain, Portugal.

Take a look at the countries that have said "NO" to EU diktat in the past - you will not find the UK among them. The Eurosceptic parties have grown in popularity because the failings of the EU have become increasingly more apparent - no other reason.

Let's take that logically (if that's possible).
Firstly, no decision has yet been made about what will happen to ex-pats in Europe, or EC citizens in UK. It may be that this will continue as at present, but with reduced ability for more people to move freely to find work (or go on the dole).
Secondly, if the system did require a wholesale relocation of workers to their home countries then, according to the figures you quote, we would receive 1.2 million people who have shown themselves willing and able to work and 30,000 people who currently claim unemployment benefit. That's an unemployment percentage of 2.5%. That should improve our employment statistics.
Unless of course you believe that all the ex-pats will be forced to return, but all the EC workers currently here will remain here.

Indeed, but the game has changed. All that long-term dissatisfaction is now seasoned with a heavy dose of waiting-in-the-wings fascism thinly disguised as populism. You've defeated your own argument by pointing to that dissatisfaction. With the help of the fascist threat, the EU could be terminally undermined.

On the application of reasoning and logic with respect to the employment/unemployment thing. The UK has consistently had a higher rate of employment than the EU and a lower rate of unemployment than the EU since 2005 so how if employment opportunities are lower in the EU does being a member state help British citizens find work? If unemployment is higher in the EU how does being a member state help British citizens find work? Answer to both is - IT DOESN'T

But for all the fears stirred up by the establishment the referendum would have been even more clear cut. They almost persuaded me to vote against.

"I have no intentions in entering into a dialogue with someone who is supporting a party he doesn't support - I think that sort of madness might be infectious." - Jim Carroll

About the most idiotic stance I have ever heard. It is also very demonstrative of Jim's greatest failing when it comes to any discussion.

To illustrate this point

Jim Carroll states some point of view on a political party or event. What he states is viewed by someone else as being incorrect and that person responds to Jim's post pointing out the errors and details what they think is the real and factual case. Jim then flies into a rage, accuses whoever of being every sort ".....ist" under the Sun, guilty of every "...ism" imaginable with the added certainty that they must be the most fervent supporter of the party and ideology he is criticising - which of course is "complete and utter" bollocks to use Shaw's expression (Please note the expression of Shaw's that I am referring to is the word "Bollocks" - the "Complete and utter" bollocks is my opinion of Jim Carroll's debating style)

You see Jim you can come out with totally unsubstantiated slurs and accusations aimed at UKIP, or any other party, and I can criticise you for doing so without being a supporter of that party. My motivation for drawing your attention to the errors in your statement being simply to establish what the real facts of the matter are. When it comes to politics on this forum I have very little respect for ANY politician or any political party. I am probably the most A-political person on this forum.

Jim, your piece on that election was written by a Lib Dem.

Here is the BBC on it.

"UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed "breakthroughs" following a series of gains made by his party during the UK-wide local and assembly elections.
After 113 results out of 124 councils, UKIP has 55 seats so far, a gain of 26.

It won six seats on Thurrock Council and just missed out on being the largest party by a single vote.
Ex-Tory MPs Neil Hamilton and Mark Reckless were among seven gains on the Welsh Assembly, and UKIP came second in two Westminster by-elections.
It was beaten by Labour in Ogmore, in South Wales, and Sheffield Brightside in South Yorkshire.
But it gained two seats on the London Assembly, for David Kurten and mayoral candidate Peter Whittle, from the London-wide top-up list, where it came fourth with 171,069 votes, its best performance in London for some years."

It doesn't matter who wrote it, and unless you claim they are lying the figures quoted are official
Ukip's vote may have risen numerically, as has all party's but their share of the vote has steadily declined as the chart shows
The fact that they have lost the only Member of Parliament is indicative of that decline and the fact they have no MPs makes them a super-fringe party on par with the Monster Raving Loony Party
As Ukip was a one-policy Party , since Brexit and the Government's statement that it will act on immigration, it has no reason for existence

Culturally implanted to abuse what Raggy? Themselves? Children? Women?

If it is the latter then Keith A's beliefs were shared By Napier who saw it at first hand over 160 years ago.

The scale of crimes perpetrated on those young girls in Rotherham at the hands of twenty British-Pakistani males can only be described as horrendous - the Police started out with over 300 suspects. Are you trying to tell us Raggy that a culture that regards women as being chattels is not abusive? But what is even worse was the fact that these men got away with it for so long (1997 to 2013) due to the "institutionalised political correctness" on the part of South Yorkshire Police force and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for their handling and covering up of the abuse.

An independent inquiry into child sexual abuse in the town, led by Professor Alexis Jay, was established in 2013 for Rotherham Council. The inquiry's initial report, published on 26 August 2014, condemned the failure of the authorities in Rotherham to act effectively against the abuse or even, in some cases, to acknowledge that it was taking place. The report estimated that 1,400 children had been sexually abused in the town between 1997 and 2013, predominantly by gangs of British-Pakistani men. Abuses described included abduction, rape, torture and sex trafficking of children.

On this horrendous crime on 16 February 2015 Labour Party leader Ed Miliband said that the Labour Party "did let people down in Rotherham, absolutely".

But that wasn't the only instance was it Raggy?

The Aylesbury child sex abuse ring was a group of six men of British Pakistani heritage who committed serious sexual offences against two under-aged girls in the English town of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The Banbury child sex abuse ring was a group of seven men who committed serious sexual offences against under-aged girls in the English town of Banbury, Oxfordshire. Those convicted - Ahmed Hassan-Sule, Kagiso Manase, Takudzwa Hova, Mohamed Saleh, Said Saleh, Zsolt Szalontai, Shane Bonas.

The Bristol child sex abuse ring was a group of 13 Somali men who committed sexual offences against underage teenage girls in Bristol, in southwestern England. - The gang coerced the girls into sex with small payments of money, gifts of drugs and alcohol, and by persuading them that having sex with many men was part of "Somali 'culture and tradition'

The Derby child sex abuse ring was a group of thirteen men, most of whom were from Pakistani backgrounds who sexually abused up to a hundred girls in Derby, England.

The Halifax child sex abuse ring was a group of 15 British Pakistani men who committed serious sexual offences against two under-aged girls in the English town of Halifax and city of Bradford, West Yorkshire.

The Keighley child sex abuse ring was a group of 12 Muslim men who committed serious sexual offences against two under-aged white girls in the English town of Keighley and city of Bradford, West Yorkshire.

The Oxford child sex abuse ring was a group of seven men who, in May 2013, were convicted of sexual offences including rape, conspiracy to commit rape, arranging or facilitating child prostitution, trafficking for sexual exploitation, and procuring a miscarriage.

"In March 2015, a report revealed that more than 300 people, mostly girls from the city of Oxford, had been groomed and sexually exploited by such gangs in the area. It accused the Thames Valley Police, then led by Chief Constable Sara Thornton, of disbelieving the girls and failing to act on repeated calls for help, and Oxfordshire Social Services of failing to protect them despite compelling evidence they were in danger. The report also called for research into why a significant number of perpetrators of child grooming came from Muslim backgrounds.

Those responsible for perpetrating these crimes: Mohammed Karrar (38) & Bassam Karrar (33) and Akhtar Dogar (32) & Anjum Dogar (31) with three other men: Kamar Jamil, 27, Assad Hussain, 32, and Zeeshan Ahmed, 27. Five were British Pakistani and two, the Karrar brothers, of Eritrean heritage.

The Peterborough sex abuse case involved 10 men of Pakistani, Iraqi Kurdish, Czech and Slovak Roma heritage who committed sexual offences against under-aged girls, some as young as 12, in the English city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

The Rochdale child sex abuse ring involved under-age teenage girls in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England. Twelve men were convicted of sex trafficking and other offences including rape, trafficking girls for sex and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child, on 8 May 2012. The men were British Pakistanis except for one Afghani which led to discussion on whether the failure to investigate them was linked to the authorities' fear of being accused of racism.

The Telford child sex abuse ring was a group of seven men, mainly British Pakistanis who were found guilty of sexual offences against four teenage girls, aged 13 to 16. The offences occurred between 2007 and 2009 in Telford, England.

Well, Keith, as you repeatedly pontificate to us about quoting things, etc., I'll say it again. You declared that "the Guardian" said that AJP Taylor's book was "fraudulent." Which it didn't. You put it in quotes, Keith. Quotes. Yet it wasn't the Guardian and no-one said his book was fraudulent, nothing like. And you've never retracted that severe terminological inexactitude. So, until you do, it would be sensible for you to desist from lecturing anyone else about their quoting I should think, hmmm? And just look at your reply at 12.14. No retraction, more lies. Tsk.

You did say similar abuse?? didn't you Rags.

Please indicate where any of those you mention groomed girls and pimped them round for years then trafficked them. I know Saville was a prodigious offender but his tally came nowhere near even the Rotherham Abuse Circle of over 1,400 victims.

In his original posts on the subject Keith A gave the statements made by prominent Pakistani and Muslim Leaders who in condemning the abuse mentioned a possible cultural link. Carroll and the rest deliberately ignored that Keith A was quoting the words of others and attributed those statements to Keith himself. A well worn tactic of his that no longer has any traction.

On the Wheatcroft thing Shaw, the two historical works you were using to support your argument were described by Wheatcroft as being vulgar (That was A.J.P.Taylor's book) and fraudulent (That was Clark's). Personally I couldn't care a toss which was which, what was important was that it helped demolish your case and having done that all Shaw was left with was this petulant, pedantic bleat that has been going on now for years - what a sad b*****d you must be Shaw.

The important phrase Teri was that the professor BELIEVED that Pakistani males had a culturally implanted tendency to abuse children.

He stated he BELIEVED this was the case, no if's, no but's, no maybe's.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but Jaconelli, Saville, Harris cannot be considered to be Pakistani males.

As for the numbers involved Jaconelli and Saville allegedly ran a ring for decades so who can say how many children, boys and girls were involved.

So unless your contacts are as wide in the Police service as you claim them to be in the Armed Forces you have absolutely no idea how many adults or children were involved.

In 2015, when these arguments started, there were 6,400 cases of pedophilia up to March,

So let me understand you Raggy, you just state that something is similar, without there being anything to substantiate it, and we, for some reason must be obliged to believe you. Sorry neither discussion or debate works like that. YOU said similar abuse didn't you? As it was you who set the bounds, the least you can do is put some effort into countering the evidence put before you. While you are at it best to remember it was those who conducted the enquiries into the Rotherham, Bristol and Oxford that called attention to the predominance among the perpetrators of their "cultural" background and the reason the abuse went on for as long as it did was due to institutionalised political correctness.

What similarities we are looking for are as follows:

Abduction of children
Rape of children
Torture of children
Sex trafficking of children.

Cheers for the gratuitous insult.

However.

You may not "give a toss" which was which, but your mate Keith clearly did. He stated that "the Guardian" described both authors as "fraudulent," whereas in fact Wheatcroft (not "the Guardian") described Taylor's as rather vulgar and Clark's as largely fraudulent. Even you can't get that quite right, can you? Wheatcroft, note, Teribus, not "the Guardian." Wheatcroft did not describe Taylor's as fraudulent, contrary to what Keith asserted, an assertion which, after all this time, he still won't retract. It's pretty simple, Teribus, and it's staring you in the face, no matter how much you want to close ranks with Keith. Keith's defence of himself in this thread simply doesn't stand up. You pick the rest of us up on our transgressions, no matter how slight, yet you want to give Keith a bye on this blatant piece of dishonesty. And you call US a gang. Wow.

Er, and I didn't "have a case" in that thread, Teribus. Read it again. It's very simple. Keith misquoted from the Guardian. I take the Guardian every day (have done for forty years), I'd read the piece on the 9th that Keith quoted a week later. I suspected a misquote. I checked. I was right. I took him up. He denied it. He was lying. He had every chance to correct himself. He wouldn't. He neither confirmed nor denied any "case" because I didn't have one. All that is lies too. Go on, go back and check. You won't, because you don't "give a toss," in your words. You think that something that was wrong two years ago will somehow be all right today. Lies go away if you wait long enough, eh? You don't "give a toss" who's telling lies as long as it's someone on your side. I dare you. Go through the thing forensically, like you do with me and Jim. You won't like what you find. Though of course you've probably already found it. And just not sayin'. Because you don't "give a toss." For the truth.

Taliking about "picking up on" or pointing out transgressions Shaw. Why are you so one sided in doing so?

On the Wheatcroft thing - "Wheatcroft, note, Teribus, not "the Guardian." - Well Wheatcroft's article did appear in the Guardian didn't it? So according to Jim Carroll's logic the Guardian was/is responsible for what it prints - Wasn't that the tack he took when accusing Boris Johnston of being "racist"? Because he, as Editor of the Spectator, allowed certain articles written by others to be printed. If memory serves you didn't see fit to correct him. Could be because you are a two faced hypocrite who firmly believes in that good old "socialist" principle "One law for the goose another for the gander".

Your case on the thread when Wheatcroft was first brought up challenged Keith A's stance related to three points put by modern day historians specialising in the period of the First World War. You challenged the statement that they were of the opinion that, in comparison to the other combatant powers involved, the British Army was generally well led. To back up your case you mentioned two works, A.J.P. Taylor's book "The First World War: an Illustrated History" and Alan Clark's "Donkey's", Keith A, myself and others pointed out that both those works had been critically reviewed by historians at the time and both had been found wanting. (Clark himself admitted that the quote from which the title of his book was taken had been made up by himself - so that would account for the "largely fraudulent", i.e. based on a falsehood.) It was also pointed out to you that any historian writing about that period in the 1960s (Taylor & Clark) did not have access to vast amounts of material available to historians writing about the subject in the last thirty years. As you based your "case" on works that were regarded as being unrefined, uneducated, illiterate (all synonyms for the word "vulgar" used in it's intended sense) and largely fraudulent that was yet another WWI thread in which your "mobbing" of Keith A did not quite pan out as you had hoped.

Now when it comes to continually dredging up past transgressions as both you and Jom have done repeatedly whenever you feel you are losing an argument, should I start doing the same highlighting yours and his? Something to do with people, stones and glasshouses comes to mind because you have dropped some real bollocks, to use your expression, over the years.

1: SCALIA COVER-UP

Operation Midland - Police inquiries closed with no charges being brought after it took 31 detectives 16 months to find absolutely nothing. The three "prime suspects" are now in the process of suing the Police.

2: ONE IN THIRTY FIVE BRITISH MEN POTENTIAL PAEDPHILES [sic]

"Potential" being the operative word. Article itself puts an estimated 750,000 males in the UK could possibly be interested in underaged sex. Of that estimated number they further estimated that 250,000 may actively pursue that interest. No idea what yardstick they used but one thing the article does not say about the research undertaken by the NCA was that the male population of the UK they looked at excluded Muslim males in the UK.

3: BRITAIN'S WORST PAEDOPHILE _ DEVOUT CHRISTIAN

First paragraph of the article Jom states quite clearly that the man in question masqueraded as a Christian to gain access to his victims. Look up what the word masquerade means.

4: BRISTOL PAEDOPHILES RAPE TODDLERS

Ah starting to get somewhere now - you provide details on one gang in one city - I have provided you with details based on hard convictions of eleven gangs in eleven cities.

5: MI5 and THATCHER COVERED UP PAEDOPHILIA IN HIGH PLACES

All part and parcel of 1 above. Investigations wrapped up, no substantive evidence found to back up any of the allegations made, no charges brought against multiple suspects named by both the police and the press, who are now suing the police.

"irst paragraph of the article Jom states quite clearly that the man in question masqueraded as a Christian"
Many "Christians" pose as being such (Keith being a typical example), but sho no affinity to Christian beliefs - doesn't matter - they are officially Christians - they are certainly not Muslim.
The point of your argument is the dominance of Muslim Paedophelia
"All part and parcel of 1 above. Investigations wrapped up"
As above - the article points out that MI5 and the government were part of "not finding any evidence" on behaldf of leading members of the British establishments - what else were they going to claim?
NO evidence has ever been produced to link the Muslim religion with Paedophelia, yet you and Keith are claiming it here
Both ways again!!
THe 1970sw Paedophelia case was not part and parcel of the later case - to tally different and still unresolved and i=unpunished
The point of my putting these up was to show that paedophelia is a dominantly indigenous phenomenon and has nothing whatever to do with the Muslim religion or culture, as you are attempting to make it out to be by your use of a minute number of young criminals who have rejected their culture and adopted the British one.
Islam forbids sex outside marriage - these criminals openly indulge in it
Islam forbids alchohol - these criminals openly imbibe
THe actions of these (no more than a thousand) criminals spread all over Britain have nothing to do with being a Muslim.

But I didn't mention those works AT ALL except in the context of Keith's misquote. I certainly did not try to use them to back up any case. Know why not? Because I haven't read them! I have no argument with Wheatcroft's analysis because I don't know the books. I don't know anything about Wheatcroft either. I didn't challenge the statements of any of these chaps, contrary to what you have said. You must be mixing me up with someone else, mate. The quote from you in this post appears to be an attempt to deflect from from the problem with Keith. If you are of the OPINION that the books were fraudulent, vulgar, whatever, I believe you. But this has nothing to do with my opinion or your opinion or Keith's opinion. It's really, really simple. I'll distil it into a single sentence for you. On Dec 16 2014 in the thread "I'm not a historian but..." Keith stated that The Guardian had called Taylor's book " fraudulent," whereas no such comment had appeared in the paper. Now I don't really see why you can't set aside all the bluster and flannel that you and Keith have surrounded this very simple matter with. When you say that someone called a book "fraudulent" when that someone did no such thing you are misquoting, misrepresenting. Accidentally, maybe: it happens. But when I picked Keith up he went all defensive and has consistently refused to admit that he ascribed a comment to a person who did not make that comment. You have the option of going back to the thread to check what I'm saying. You have the option of ignoring this. But what you seem to have done is to have relied on a sort of half-memory without checking back, then indulging in a sort of mythology of what happened in the thread. Everything I've said here is true, checkable and neutrally-put. If you and Keith wish to stand by the fiction you've both created around this, fine. We can make our own conclusions about your lack of integrity and honesty from that.

As a response to my last post that Jom is pathetic.

So all the detectives assigned to Operation Midland, the Government and M.I.5 are all corrupt. If that was the case numbnuts it would not have taken them 16 months to find nothing, for budgetary reasons it would have been wrapped up a damn sight quicker than that. If it was a cover up then no way in God's creation would those named and who were being "protected" in this supposed cover up would be f**kin' stupid enough, or allowed to take legal action to sue those responsible for blackening their names and reputations - Don't you ever think, question or reason before you write anything??

"Article itself puts an estimated 750,000 males in the UK could possibly be interested in underaged sex"

And those 750,000 males includes Muslin males in the UK Jom {Not all of them by any means before you launch yourself down that route}. Those 750,000 males are NOT paedophiles, if you think they are then you obviously did not read the article.


Which is exatly what Keith said about Muslims and you have supported

A blatant and deliberately told LIE. What Keith A stated on this forum were the opinions of three influential members of Devout Christian - the text of the article does not make any claim that the man was a Christian, devout or otherwise, they said he masqueraded as a Christian as a means of gaining access to children. In other words Jom it is an irrelevance, if he thought that masquerading as a devout Muslim would have gained him access would you still be saying the same thing?

"NO evidence has ever been produced to link the Muslim religion with Paedophelia, yet you and Keith are claiming it here"

Who said any evidence had been produced to link the Muslim religion with Paedophilia? Three prominent members of the Muslim community and those investigating these sex gangs in Rotherham, Bristol and Oxford all commented on the predominance of perpetrators being British-Pakistani males suggesting that there may be "Cultural" reasons - Note that Jom CULTURAL reasons NOT RELIGIOUS reasons - Don't say they are the same because they most certainly are not.

In the case of the Bristol Gang:
"The gang coerced the girls into sex with small payments of money, gifts of drugs and alcohol, and by persuading them that having sex with many men was part of "Somali 'CULTURE AND TRADITION'

No mention or reference there to RELIGION.

What Keith A stated on this forum were the opinions of three influential members of Devout Christian - the text of the article does not make any claim that the man was a Christian, devout or otherwise, they said he masqueraded as a Christian as a means of gaining access to children. In other words Jom it is an irrelevance, if he thought that masquerading as a devout Muslim would have gained him access would you still be saying the same thing?

Should read:

A blatant and deliberately told LIE. What Keith A stated on this forum were the opinions of three influential members of Muslim Community of the United Kingdom coupled with the conclusions drawn from those investigating the incidents that there appeared to be a cultural dimension linking the perpetrators along with "institutionalised political correctness".

Devout Christian - the text of the article does not make any claim that the man was a Christian, devout or otherwise, they said he masqueraded as a Christian as a means of gaining access to children. In other words Jom it is an irrelevance, if he thought that masquerading as a devout Muslim would have gained him access would you still be saying the same thing?

"that the man was a Christian, devout or otherwise, they said he masqueraded as a Christian"
It makes no difference
The point I put him up was he was an example of an indigenous paedophile
Surely you are not suggesting that Christians are not paedophiles?
You want examples of Christians using their position to molest children - no problem
This is the man's actual background
"The former grammar school pupil, born to devout Christian parents in Ashford, Kent, led a secret life as a prolific paedophile, targeting children as young as six-months-old to satisfy his depraved desires."
Smoke and mirrors again
"What Keith A stated on this forum were the opinions of three influential members of Muslim Community of the United Kingdom "
A blatant lie - he has never produced examples of anybody saying anything resembling his statement and has refused to do so.
You want to prove that is not true, you ***** produce them
There is no evidence whatever of a cultural link between Islam and paedophelia, which is Keith's claim.
Now - come back when you have evidence of "cultural implants" and until you do, do not call me a liar

Steve,
You quoted the thing in full only after you were challenged for incorrectly stating that Taylor's book had been called "fraudulent."

That is a lie Steve. I quoted in full when I first introduced that article into the debate.

It is not necessary to quote in full every time it is referenced.
I conflated his terms of dismissal when further referring to his rubbishing of those texts thereby rubbishing your views and supporting mine.
No deception, and no need to deceive. He was supporting my view and rubbishing yours.

But why are you rehashing a 2014 discussion here?
If you could challenge what I put in this thread you would.
Instead you go back to 2014, Jim and Rag to 2011 in the desperate search for something to use against me personally.
And still you fail to find anything!

Chapter and verse, time and date, please.

"It is not necessary to quote in full every time it is referenced."

It is necessary to not misquote. Wheatcroft did not call Taylor's book "fraudulent." You said he did. He didn't. That isn't conflating or speaking generally or anything else. It's a lie. Very, very simple. You are bang to rights.

"...thereby rubbishing your views and supporting mine."

You were not rubbishing any views that I had expressed even remotely in connection with this matter of the two books. This attempt at deception has nothing whatever to do with my views. It has everything to do with your dishonesty, pretending that someone said something that it is glaringly obvious they didn't.

"No deception, and no need to deceive. He was supporting my view and rubbishing yours."

See above. Completely untrue. Bears no resemblance to how the matter was being discussed.

"But why are you rehashing a 2014 discussion here?"

It isn't the discussion I'm rehashing. I have no interest in doing that. You were
pontificating about people's quotes. I am demonstrating that your past behaviour, over which you are unrepentant, clearly shows that you are the last person in the world who should be lecturing other people about their quotes.

"That series had been preceded in 1963 by AJP Taylor's rather vulgar book, The First World War: An Illustrated History, and Oh, What a Lovely War!, Joan Littlewood's musical pasquinade. The latter, which used the songs the Tommies had sung in the trenches, drew on Alan Clark's 1961 book The Donkeys – a largely fraudulent book, whose title derives from an invented quotation about "lions led by donkeys", that nevertheless made a mark.

Certain societies on this planet regard women as chattels Jim, I note that you do not condemn that. When members of such "cultures" (S.F.A. to do with religion) come to the UK and settle here for whatever reason, then that part of their "culture"(S.F.A. to do with religion) gets abandoned as it is against the laws of this country to treat women in such a fashion. If they don't like it they can form political parties and campaign until they have the support and political clout the disenfranchise over half of our population. Personally I believe that the emancipation of women was the greatest advance for the benefit of mankind during the course of the twentieth century, maybe you disagree.

The individual came from a devoutly Christian family, such people tend to absorb family influences, he used his knowledge of Christianity to entrap his victims - there is no reason to believe he wasn't a devout Christian
Recent history has shown that some of the worst paedofiles in society are not just practicing and devout Christian bu in fact have used their position as clergymen to rape and abuse children - a situation that has prevailed for centuries and is still being uncovered.

Yet for some reason Jim only thinks that this happens in Christian households and communities. Wonder what reasoning and logic he employs to come to that conclusion - apparently no family influences are absorbed in homes and families of other religions. He also seems to think that "culture" in which someone is brought up in and lives his/her whole life in is not a factor - when of course it's influence is far greater than that of religion

What about them?
These are not the cultures we are talking about.
The people we are discussing are British Muslims - some of them have lived under British/Muslim culture for decades and absorbed our culture, good and evil
All these National cultures developed under British rule anyway - we were happy enough to live with or off them while we were exploiting them - now, it would appear, we are happy to use them as an excuse to denigrate people and keep them out.
Generally, those who move to Britain, or anywhere settle in and merge with the native culture - if they are allowed to - they may tend to live in their own communities for practical reasons or for companionship in hostile surroundings, or even for safety, but they obey our laws and merge into our society, when they are allowed to.
If you care to read it up, this is the advice given by Muslim teachers - merge into the host society and obey their laws.
Extremist traditions are a problem in any community or religion, that includes Christianity, Judaism and Muslim, but, as I have pointed out, the tiny handful of criminals we are talking about have rejected the Muslim Culture - they certainly aren't representative of it.
They drink alcohol against their religious teachings, they have sex outside of marriage - strictly forbidden in their tradition - they are not traditionalists so they can in no way be described as part of the Muslim culture.
The problem with these misfits is not that they cling to Muslim culture but that they have adopted some of the worst aspects of ours.
We have a society that treats women as 'available' - take a look at some of the readily available porn sites. or take a look at some of the magazines available in newsagents, or turn to page three of The Sun - women as available meat.
Marital rape in Britain was only introduced into law in the late 1970s, more than 80% of rapes go unreported and it is estimated that 994 OUT OF A 1000 RAPISTS TRIED FOR THEIR CRIMES GO FREE
A raped woman who reports the offence undergoes two ordeals - first the rape itself, then her ordeal in court where every inch of her own behaviour us put under scrutiny and, if possible, used against her.
WE HAVE NO CLAIM TO A MORAL GROUND AS FAR AS THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN IN BRITAIN and now America has a President who suggest that it's OK to "just go up and grab a woman's pussy if the fancy takes you"
As Ghandi said of Western civilsation, "It would be a good idea".

"Confusing "culture" with "religion" again Jom."
Confusing "Jom" with Jim again Teribus - and you seemed to be making an effort to grow up - maybe one day eh?
Answer the points rather than throwing up diversive and inaccurate points to create smokescreens.
British Muslim Pakistanis refers to a race an culture and a religion
Britain describes itself as a Christian country, even though only 53% of its people describe themselves as "not religious" and only 30% regard themselves as religious
'Christian' refers to culture as well as religion.
Stop nit-picking, you aren't skilful enough to get away with it.
