Brian Williams Walter Mitty moments

Brian Williams ‘will be investigated by NBC’ as another element of his claim to being gunned-down in Iraq crumblesFresh claims emerge about his ‘lies’ of Katrina256863FA00000578-0-image-a-53_1423251338383Walter Mitty Brian Williams will be the subject of an internal investigation for lying about being gunned down by enemy fire in Iraq, sources claim. It comes as reports continue to surface, rubbishing anecdotes the NBC News anchor regaled on air about Iraq (bottom right) and Hurricane Katrina (top right) where he claims he witnessed a suicide. Today, the only beacon of support for Williams – a pilot who said he was flying the NBC News team and that their squadron was gunned-down – said he is now ‘questioning his memories’.

Pre-digital era allowed reporters and journalists to pour buckets of exaggeration over their stories of ‘derring do.’ Post-digital has forced the art of ‘poetic licence’ out of their spinning yarns – obviously some are unable to adjust to the realities of life. This toe rag should be dropped kicked out into the gutter where he belongs.        Yours Aye.

“Steve Emerson-complete idiot!”

249B011500000578-2905876-image-a-73_1421022388679Prime Minister David Cameron brands Fox News terrorism expert Steve Emerson a ‘complete idiot’ after claiming Birmingham is ‘totally Muslim’ and ‘non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.’ Steve Emerson made the bizarre comments on Fox News in the US – also claiming there were religious police squads roaming the streets of London who ‘seriously wound’ people in non-Muslim dress.Adrian-Chiles-fil

It sparked bafflement on Twitter under the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts, with users suggesting his theory was about as likely as ‘Brummie’ TV presenter Adrian Chiles (right) being a radical cleric.

Mr Cameron said he thought it must be April Fools’ Day, adding: ‘When I heard this, frankly I choked on my porridge. This guy is clearly a complete idiot.’ He added: ‘Now, he started with an apology – that’s not a bad place to start. But what he should do is actually look at Birmingham and see what a fantastic example it is of bringing people together of different faiths and different backgrounds and actually building a world-class brilliant city.’ ‘In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones,’ he claimed. ‘There are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.’

Just for the record, and for those residing across the pond: A ‘Brummie’ is a colloquial term for the inhabitants, accent, and dialect of Birmingham, England. Just to extend the record file slightly, it has to be said that the Brummies of Birmingham are by nature wonderful warm people – the city itself offers a cracking run-ashore through its vast amount of pubs, as well as a treasure trove of eateries and unique shopping. Before closing the file may I just add; David Cameron is the ‘pot calling the kettle black’ when he calls anyone a complete idiot!  It is my own humble opinion that Steve Emerson is a misinformed idiot, who rightly deserves lashings of ridicule heaped upon him.      Yours Aye.          

Carlos Danger, man about town

Being from this side of the pond, I (and many like me) cannot get our heads around the fact that Carlos Danger Anthony ‘Weinerous’ Weiner is still in the running for public office? How on Gods green earth can it be, surely this little tirade at a bakers shop in the Borough Hall area of Brooklyn, is the final nail into his Mayoral candidates coffin lid! ‘You’re a JACKASS!’ Anthony Weiner ends up in screaming match in a bakery after voter calls him a ‘scumbag’ and says ‘you married an Arab’  The wonderful world of Politics.     Yours Aye.article-2411817-1BA0651D000005DC-549_634x426

Enough is enough…

Don’t you just love it when the general public say “enough is enough”. The good people of the Town of Louth, in Lincolnshire did just that, when they thwarted the getaway of two criminals after they attempted to smash and grab from a jewelers on the high street.article-2410045-1B9AD4C3000005DC-310_964x347The town that fought back: Dramatic moment shoppers thwarted armed robbers by kicking over their getaway bike – before a driver refused to hand over car keys even AFTER he had been stabbed A big ‘well done’ to those who stood up to the challenge.    Yours Aye.

Until the earth stands still

Those responsible for atrocities committed through WWII, through to modern day, should be hunted down and dealt with accordingly. I do not have one ounce of pity or sympathy for Dutch born, 92-year-old Siert Bruins, a former SS officer who now lives in Germany.article-0-1B9491CB000005DC-51_634x428Former SS officer goes on trial in Germany for shooting resistance fighter in the back 70 years ago This should act as a lesson for todays Dictators and despots.   Yours Aye.

Tag team sisters…

I promise you this is not a run on the theme of feisty red heads, this is about two members of the general public fighting back. The cyclist made an attempt at stealing the cash from the ATM, which belonged to two feisty red headed sisters making the withdrawal. As the notes the notes appeared from the machine the cyclist lunged forward to grab the cash, one of the sisters grabbed him in a head lock, while the other slapped him daft. Obviously the clown on the bike is not a reader of this blog…article-2403950-1B7F928A000005DC-232_634x439  The moment a cash machine thief got his come-uppance from two feisty sisters  article-2403950-1B7F928E000005DC-254_634x420 This is a public service announcement; attempting to steal money from feisty red heads, will end in humiliating failure, as well as receiving a police record. 

Yours Aye.     UPDATE: He’s been nicked….

Women really are the stronger sex…

Alex Kingston as Boadiceawomen really are the stronger sex: Research suggests testosterone weakens the immune system (which means man flu could actually be real) Just a pure coincidence that the article portrays a powerful woman with red hair & blue eyes; Boadicea the Warrior Queen of the Iceni. Who died A.D. 61: After leading her people against the Roman invaders. (works for me, the hairs have stood up on the back of my neck)!boudicca[Boudicca] Statue at Westminster Bridge, London.            Yours Aye.

Donkeys in the building

Lions on the ground. A reference to the United Nations and the way it operates, which comes from the reference of ‘Lions led by Donkeys’. A phrase popularly used to describe the British infantry of World War I, and to condemn the generals who commanded them. In the buffer zone Syria, the first vehicle of the chemical weapons investigation team was deliberately shot at multiple times by unidentified snipersarticle-2402378-1B797E87000005DC-707_634x362 As the vehicle was deemed unserviceable through its weakened armoured glass plate, the team returned safely back to the government checkpoint; where they de-bussed to a secondary vehicle, and continued to the task in hand. Lions on the ground!   Yours Aye.

Send for the Silent Service

There is only one reason a Submarine breaks the surface, and that is to be spotted. According to accurate reports, HMS Tireless has done just that, off the coast of Gibraltar on Saturday 24th August. British nuclear submarine ‘surfaces off Gibraltar’oyal  Navy Submarine HMS Astute Fires a Tomahawk Cruise Missile (TLAM) During Testing Near the USAHmmm… Gibraltar to the Cyprus Basin is approximately two and a half days submerged at 30 mph/59 kph. Or two days to the Nile Fan (of which is approx 220 miles from the coast of Tel Aviv). Given that permission would be required to ‘throw’ a Tomahawk cruise missile through a countries air space, and that the distance from the Nile Fan to Damascus is approx 332 miles, it would be obvious that Israeli airspace would be a pretty good direct flight path. Speculation of course, pure speculation and simple conjecture…     Yours Aye. 

Clandestine Operations

And the smell of hypocrisy from the European Union. Secret plane stuffed full of cash that saved the euro: When Greece burned and its banks melted, the EU talked tough and threatened to cut it loose… but covertly flooded it with 10billion If this operation happened for Greece, then it almost certainly happened for Cyprus, and the remainder of ‘PIIGS’ (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain). The EU is not fit for purpose…Untitled-3.jpgThe EU pushes openness, fairness and transparency between member states, except they don’t inform the little people who have to stump up the funding through added taxes. Roll on the referendum we have been promised (again) here in the UK. Though I doubt we will need it; the EU’s fraudulent activities combined with gross mismanagement has forced it into a dark slimy corner, with no way out. Had the EU been run as a business, it would have had to have declared itself bankrupt within three years of its conception.images

UPDATE: Greece says it wants ANOTHER £8billion to stay afloat – but won’t accept any more austerity measures A short stop gap to cover Government service pay. They will also require €250 Billion plus, as an additional bail out, which they have no hope of paying back. The European Union is a death star ready to implode. I have been practicing my Irish jig, ready for dancing on its grave…      Yours Aye.

A fistful of $ Dollars USD

Or a fistful of £ Sterling, depending on what side of the pond you hail from. bill-424276

That’s what you will require to purchase Wild Bill Hickok’s Smith & Wesson No 2 revolver when it comes up for auction. The .32 gun with a 6in barrel, blue finish and varnished rosewood grips comes with documentation proving its provenance. 68920 WILD WEST fans will need a fistful of dollars to buy the ­pistol Wild Bill Hickok was ­carrying With todays currency conversion, that’s $ 498,352-USD, or £ 320,000-Sterling. I would lay odds on that it stays on the $ side of the pond, which is where its true history sits. (it would have to be de-commissioned if it was brought into the UK, a gross act of legislative vandalism)!

Yours Aye.

Alleged act of betrayal, most foul

Aisha Ali-Khan court case London Metropolitan Police detective Mohammed Afiz Khan (seen right outside court with his wife today), 46, is accused of passing confidential information – including details of plans to arrest Choudary (below left) – to his wife Aisha Ali-Khan, 33, while she was working as Respect Party MP Mr Galloway’s (top left) parliamentary secretary. Khan was heading up the force’s Muslim Contact Unit, part of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Unit, at the time. The couple from Keighley in West Yorkshire, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today. Policeman charged with leaking plans to arrest hate preacher Anjem Choudary to his wife who worked for George Galloway 

Innocent until proven guilty is the Law of the Land. If found guilty of the ‘alleged’ crime I truly hope they both receive lengthy prison sentences. In my mind it is tantamount to aiding and abetting those involved in Islamic Extremism, who have no respect for the laws of the United Kingdom. Further more, I have nothing but utter contempt for the lickspittle Hypocrite George Galloway The words I have for the cowardly Choudary are unpixable for this blog!

Yours Aye.

Dancing with the Devil in Ibiza

article-2389737-1B42409A000005DC-593_636x383Michaella McCollum Connolly, 20, from Belfast, (left) and Melissa Reid, 19, (right) from Lenzie, in Scotland, are being held in a maximum security cells in Peru following claims they tried to smuggle £1.5million of cocaine out of the country.  British girls locked up in Peruvian hellhole jail for ‘smuggling £1.5million of cocaine’ the pair are said to be ‘terrified’ and ‘hysterical’ and are starving themselves while protesting their innocence in the jail in Lima. Miss Reid and Miss McCollum Connolly were arrested after officers say they found more than 11kg of the Class A drug in their suitcases as they checked in for a 6,000-mile flight back to Spain last Tuesday. It has been claimed that the girls may have been working for gangsters who increasingly target vulnerable young British people as drug ‘mules’. From Ibiza to Peru: They are obviously innocent until proven guilty, or other wise. Call me an old cynic if you wish, but when you dance with the Devil, don’t complain when you burn your fingers on his tail! DownloadedFile

The sad thing is, as I sit and pixel these words, more naive young kids living the ‘dream’ in the toxic, hedonistic, drug addled island of Ibiza, will be boarding a flight to Peru, to do exactly the same thing as these two young stupid girls. Leaving their parents and families to pick up the pieces…

Your Aye.

To ponder the ponderous

Earlier this morning at breakfast I read an article about light, which at the time fascinated me to the extent that afterwards I called ‘N’, a friend who is a Scientific Academic genius within his own right. As we spoke I could hear his keyboard tapping as he retrieved an article, which detailed in layman’s terms the benefits of using light to transport data or technology, of which was duly explained. Such information is only of benefit if the light can be stopped and stored. If this was possible then the information contained within a large city library could be transported within a nanosecond, and stored elsewhere within a system as small and as short as a single strand of hair, ready for retrieval when required. Such stored light could even be used in darkness, as the beam would create its own energy path when released.article-2380028-1B050CF3000005DC-131_634x610

Light is the fastest thing in the known universe and travels at 300 million meters per second, three days ago it was stopped dead still inside a crystal. This effectively creates light memory, where images being carried by the light is stored in crystals. Beyond being utterly cool, this breakthrough could lead to the creation of long-range quantum networks — and perhaps, tantalizingly, this research might also give us some clues on accelerating light beyond the universal speed limit. Scientists stop light completely for a MINUTE.images

In other words, man has discovered some thing revolutionary that will change the course of science, which will one day revolutionise our lives (or destroy us through the advent of hand-held laser pulse weapons)?

We finished our chat on a high, and left each other with the feeling that this would be of enormous benefit to mankind (if used correctly)? I put the kettle on and warmed up the tea-pot, as is my way when I need to ponder about the ponderous!                                                          Yours, Aye-Aye Captain!

The enemy of my enemy

Is certainly not my friend. Having voiced my opinion on the English Defence League in the past, and argued against their ultra right wing views. I do feel obliged to update those outside of our small island over their recent  gathering and activitiy.article-2375781-1AF79E81000005DC-81_308x420 EDL member’ poses brazenly with shocking inking         

To those who still think that the organisation’s thugs and yob’s represent the true feelings of the English, think again! As the great majority of England stands against the EDL, and their violent ultra right wing beliefs. We the majority do care about the traditions and values of England, and the United Kingdom.

Over the past few years the EDL have tried to recruit Sikhs as well as Jews into their ranks, in a bid to soften the publics view against their racism. The Sikh, as well as the Jewish community have no wish or intention to do so. Neither will they be intimidated by those seeking to recruit their youth. Click the pic ‘Search for Sikhs’ to enlarge search-for-sikhs-far-right-group-out-to-recruit-new-members

The political pen, and the vote of English, and British people will resolve the problem of Islamic extremism, not the ultra right wing sword of mindless violence.
