Baby duck reunited with family

Feel good story of the year….so far!

A cat brought home a  baby duck.  After about 20 minutes of wondering what to do the cat’s owner decided to take the duckling outside to see if it could call to it’s mother.   This is what happened…

boys and their toys – awesome flight simulator

I neither have the skill, time nor dedication to build something like this – however, Richard Hutchinson’s ambition and achievement is admirable.

I read that he’d spent £10,000 converting his spare room into a replica cockpit.

ukip are MAD, but not as dangerous as the killers we keep!

How is this possible?

The current coalition Government and their opposition numbers in the Labour party denounce UKip for the “racist” and the “dangerous” language they use when speaking on matters of immigration.  I wouldn’t wish to take this valid point away.

However, how well does our Government’s record stand up to scrutiny when it comes to the immigration status of the truly undesirables in the UK?

The UK political elite state that UKip’s protestations, that there are too many ‘immigrants’ in the UK, is nothing short of dangerous racism, yet at the same time – have allowed our courts to give ‘leave to remain’ to some of the worst murders and war criminals at large from around the world.

They seem not as affronted when a foreign killer of a few or many – wins the right to stay in Britain indefinitely – after claiming his human rights would be breached if he was deported.

Or when a mass murderer is allowed to roam our streets freely because to send him back to the country that seeks him – to answer for his crimes- may use capital punishment and to that end – we will not go.

I do not agree with capital punishment – but I agree even less with a murderer or someone connected with genocide escaping to our country and using our laws to hide the justice that seeks them.

I cannot comprehend what it must be like to know that the person who killed your family member (or family) is being protected by another country- that defends them that slaughtered your loved ones the “right to family life”?

Yet we have it here in the UK.

The test for our politicians is not just to point at UKip – accuse them of being racist and hope the problem will go away – but to look at the reality of modern day Britain and ask…

Who would you rather stayed in our country?

  • A mass murderer
  • A student whose visa has expired

Currently – if you are on a student visa which expires – we’ll grab you by the collar and throw you out on your ear and our courts won’t lift a finger to help! However, let us say you are a mass murderer…well, errrm… “Welcome To The United Kingdom”.

Here are just a few examples…

Yet it takes years for us to deport known extremists and the only way we seem to get any kind of conviction is in a foreign court!
