Terror Update

I see Biggles has been stirring the possum over on Thanet Life, by suggesting that it's ridiculous that blonde women with children should be randomly searched at airports. The implication being that only Muslim-looking, dusky types should receive the full attention of our security services.

He's obviously playing to his audience, as the 'string 'em ups' and 'hangin's too goods' have all chimed in to say that, er, they should all be strung up, and, er, hanging's too good for them.

with his trusty band of racsists and a policy of "you can't come here if your not going to be nice to me " you would not expect anything else

It may sound strange but I am hoping that the next 'terrorist threat' is from a group of 'whites'. Everytime it's from a group of 'British Asians' my heart sinks a little lower as it continues to supply ammunition to all the Daily Mail readers of the world in reinforcing certain stereotypes. Terrible stuff.

About time that the IRA chipped in again, do you mean?

As for Dr. Joystick In My Cockpit, well, I'm not about to start badmouthing that useless cu.. er.. clot on your site again.
I'm still smarting a bit from the bollocking that he gave someone else on my behalf, last time!

It's something you hear all the time in Thanet - blame it on the immigrants. One minute it's blame it on the Eastern Europeans, the next it's blame it on the Muslims. The people who say these things were probably the same people who advocated locking up every Irish person in the 70s and 80s, when the IRA were 'the enemy'.

And as our gun happy police can't seem to tell the difference between someone from Brazil and someone from the Indian subcontinent anyway, specifically targeting 'Muslim looking people' for security checks etc. is clearly going to lead to a whole heap of trouble.

There is a discontented minority within the Muslim community, it's true, but blanket targeting of Muslims is not the way forward. Just like the 'sus' law, which gave police powers to spot check (mainly black) people in the 70s and 80s was in some way at least to blame for all the riots back then.

These people fail to learn the lessons of history. They blame everyone but themselves for their discontented, miserable lives. I wouldn't be surprised if most of them voted BNP.

As my old mate Elton (Ben) used to say, a little bit of politics there!

I see that Dr Biggles has now removed the offending comments from his 'alternative newspaper', claiming they went against site policy. Although he still seems to think that a blonde lady in a Laura Ashley dress with kids could never in a million years be a suicide bomber. Now if she was carrying a Red Or Dead handbag...

Eastcliff Richard said...

By the way, RSR, 'Count without the O' would be perfectly acceptable!

sfdretywu said...

It's the thought that c*unts, I suppose.

That Ram Skate fellow can be a bit rude, can't he? I wouldn't allow that sort of thing on my blog. Next thing you know, he'll be callling someone a steaming great twat!

sfdretywu said...

Don't you worry, you can c*unt upon my impeccable behaviour whenever I visit your blog.
As for Sgt. Major Moores, well, that's all history now.

Eastcliff Richard said...

No worries, RSR, and please just keep on doing what you do best.

Anon 3:55 pm the comment about a blanket targeting of muslims rather misses the point that presumably Bin Laden will not be recruting in Tel Aviv, Tibet or the Vatican City.

The sad fact is these bastards who think nothing of killing innocents also presumably believe themselves to be adherents of islam.

Looks like WW3's about to break out on my blog, so swiftly moving on to the jokes...

A man gets into a train compartment, and sitting opposite him is a little old lady reading a Bible. Every time the train stops at a station, she closes the Bible. Then, as soon as the train sets off again, she opens it and starts reading again.

After a few stops, curiosity gets the better of the man, and he leans over and says: "I'm sorry, but I couldn't help noticing that you close your Bible at every stop, and then open it again as soon as the train moves off. May I ask why?"

"F*ck off and mind your own business," comes the reply.

One of my old pal Barry Cryer's. The man's a genius!

Lucy Mail said...

Do they, Tony?
I wouldn't have thought that Israel cared too much for Islam, at all!
In fact, I'd go as far as saying that they believe themselves to be adherent to the Jewish faith.
If you're going to get political, I'd suggest you check your 'facts' first.

ps
What a terrible joke!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Well, I thought it was good (the joke).

Here's another. A Jew, a Muslim and a Christian arrive at the gates of heaven. The Jew turns to the Muslim and says...

On second thoughts maybe that one's a bit controversial.

sfdretywu said...

Brings to mind the one about the Jew, Christian and Muslim trying to decide how much money to donate to their respective churches.
The Christian suggests that he draws a circle on the ground and throws all of his money into the air, from the middle of it. Whatever money lands outside the circle, he will donate to his church. The Muslim goes for a similar idea but says he'll donate all the money that lands inside the circle. The Jew says he has a better idea. He'll throw all of his money into the air and what God wants, he can keep.

I know a joke about a prawn, too, if anyone's interested but it is rather distasteful!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Oh go on!

sfdretywu said...

It's ok, I stuck it in my own.

tony flaig said...

I must have gone barking bonkers mad, in the last few days, and my apologies to all and sundry. I'm just a sick of endless references to particular communities, when the focus should be on and the facts and not opinion. Again my apologies particularly Eastwhiff Richard please delete me, if I have caused any offence.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Now now, Tony, there's no need to be so hard on yourself!

sfdretywu said...

Well quite!
That's our job.
