The Silly British Allow Sharia Law to get its foot in the door.

Family courts can accept sharia law 28/10/2008.

What other country in our world would allow their laws to be tampered with in this manner. Are the British law makers going soft in the head?, particularly when allowing so they believe; only a minuscule of the archaic sharia law to infiltrate the British courts simply in order to appease Muslim communities. This foot in the door trick will no doubt snowball allowing further penetration into British law by these out dated inhuman religious loonies.

Decisions reached according to Islamic law can be accepted by English family courts, it has emerged. How deplorable.
Although sharia law officially has no jurisdiction in England, a ruling passed on a separating couple by a sharia council can be submitted to a formal family court.
There, the principles of the sharia judgment, embodied in a consent order, may be rubber-stamped by a judge.

The situation became clear when Justice minister Bridget Prentice told MPs: "If, in a family dispute dealing with money or children, the parties to a judgment in a sharia council wish to have this recognised by English authorities, they are at liberty to draft a consent order embodying the terms of the agreement and submit it to an English court.
"This allows English judges to scrutinise it to ensure that it complies with English legal tenets.

This will also allow other crazy religious numb skulls to receive equality. I say they should travel to a country able deal with their particular religious dilemmas.
A consent order can deal with the division of money, property, savings and child maintenance, according to the website.
The court will "rubber-stamp" the order if it decides the agreement reached is fair, and the order will then act as a contract between the couple.
If the court is not happy with the consent order it may ask for more information or for the couple to attend a hearing.
In the written answer to MPs, Ms Prentice stressed: "Any order in a family case is made or approved by a family judge applying English family law."
But Robert Whelan, of the Civitas think tank, said the "Women who live in some communities may have no option but to go to the sharia court. The case is then rubber-stamped by a family court without any of us knowing how the decision was reached." Obviously the think tank had a few tankards before they made their decision.
I recall in the early nineties; when the management of a large shopping complex in the Sydney western suburbs informed the public that, on advice from several shoppers in the community, the Christmas Nativity scene will not be allowed from now on, in order not to offend the non Christian community. After leading a group of people to the management to stir the can and put them in the picture, the decision was overturned, and rightly so. Had the boot been on the other foot; say in Mecca, Well! one could imagine the mayhem.

BODY PIERCING. It could be as dangerous as being Pranged with a Spear

Parents must approve if teens want to pierce their bodies.
And the following information would be invaluable to adults too.

CHILDREN under 16 wanting to pierce their ears, nose, or navel will need permission notes from their parents under laws to be introduced by the NSW Aus.Government.

And underage intimate body piercings will be outlawed, with operators facing fines of up to $22,000 if they are caught performing an intimate piercing on a child.

For any other piercing done without a parent's consent, the fine will be as high as $3000.

This is about making sure that children are protected from the health risks that can be associated with body piercing, which is a growing trend among young people.
Concerns over hepatitis B and C, toxic shock and blood poisoning have prompted the the tough parliamentary response that intimate piercing clearly raised child protection issues.

I can't see any reason why a child under the age of 16 would need to expose their intimate body parts to strange adults for the sake of fashion or a trend, even the most simple piercing can leave life-long scars.

The concern is, that things are fashionable and immediate because most adolescents work on a day-to-day timetable but they can deeply regret it later. Piercings done without medical guidance can result in serious infections and other ongoing problems.
If you have an eyebrow piercing, for example, it can leave a scar where the hair doesn't grow back, and intimate piercing should be left in the adult domain.

The regulations have have been signed off on by Cabinet and legislation is now being prepared and will be brought to Parliament shortly.
These rulings will only apply to Australian residents.

'Purr'uviens Munch on Pussy for Dinner or a Late Night Snack.

Furious over cat-eating festival, lap this up.

Would you consider having Tiddles for nibbles?

A foodie event in Canete, Peru that celebrates the eating of cats for their supposed health and aphrodisiac qualities has been furiously criticised by animal rights group PETA.

Local residents chow down on hundreds of cats during the Gastronomical Festival of the Cat in the belief that a puss pasty, deep fried cat or tabby stew will help prevent bronchial disease and purr-rove favourable in the bedroom.

While most people may not be able to manage a meowful, mother-of-seventeen(obviously a staunch Catholic) Aura Francisca, 63, tells how she credits munching on moggies especially reared for the Day of Santa Ifigenia festival for keeping her fertile.

A PETA spokesperson said: “Having toured slaughterhouses for dogs in Taiwan, horses in Texas, and chickens and cows in Europe, PETA’s staff says the last thing we need to do is add yet another poor animal to the list of those being frightened and slaughtered for a taste.”

Are PETA wrong to criticise the Peruvian tradition of eating cats? Or does the idea leave you feline queasy?

The three pussies left in our care by #5 son, instead of digging up our garden could be popped in the pot for a tasty catserole in order to remeow my flagging libido.
'I said could' but I doubt it. Then again I reckon male rabbit stew loaded with testosterone would be equal to the task.

In China there are chow houses where one may choose a live fish to be cooked to your liking, or a choice of rats in cages specially bred for the table. Of course you could have a delicious Taiwanese traditional dish of Sum Bow Wow. or a gypsy favourite; roast hedgehog. It was in China that roast pork was invented; when a farmer locked his pigs in his house for safe keeping and returning home to find his house burned to the ground, he touched one of the hot pigs and then sucked his burned finger, 'Delicious'.

Five more potential pet recipes:

1) Cock-a-tiel-leekie soup

2) Hamster sandwich

3) Parrot cake

4) Collie-flower with cheese

5) Rat-atouille

Hi Everyone I'm back. New computer up and running

Hummm let me think ,...why did I send you this......Don't tell me it's coming to me.....
Oh ya.....

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized
For every conceivable deficiency of the modern world,
Real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility
For all we have done and do not blame others.
Upon reflection,
We would like to point out
That it was NOT the senior citizens who took:
The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behaviour,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement, or,
God out of government and school.
And we certainly are NOT the ones
Who eliminated
Patience and tolerance
From personal relationships and interactions with others!!
And, we do understand the meaning
Of patriotism,
And remember those who have fought and died
For our country.

I'm the life of the party...... Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps... With a hammer.
I'm usually interested in going home before I get to where I am going.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm very good at telling stories; over and over and over and over...
I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are not nearly as cute as mine.
I'm so cared for --- long term care, eye care, private care, dental care.

I'm not really grouchy,
I just don't like:
Loud music,
Unruly kids,
Barking dogs,
And a few other things
I can't seem to remember right now.
I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
I'm sure they are making adults much younger these days,
And when did they let kids become policemen?
I'm wondering,
If you're only as old as you feel,
How could I be alive at 150?
And, how can my kids be older than I feel sometimes?
I'm a walking storeroom of facts.....
I've just lost the key to the storeroom door.

Now if you cant remember
Who sent this to you,
don't send it back to them,
But send it to many more!
I think that's all for now.
Have an Awesome Day.

Could someone tell me what I was doing before I posted this?

New Computer, Not arrived yet, Still waiting.

I haven't been able to do much blogging recently, my present arrangements are a bit lackadaisical and too slow, #1 son will be setting up the new PC when it eventually arrives, and this coming weekend I shall be attending to more important health matters. A pinched nerve in my left thigh comes into play during walking or exercises, which is not so important as some ballooning blood vessels within my abdomen together with a ballooning Aorta which hopefully will be fixed in the new year. I now have to lessen my intake of food, plus all dairy is 'Out' as well as cookies - bickies, beer sugar coffee. Maccas KFC and things like pies and Hotdogs. and also halve the bread intake. This is all serious stuff, do I continue and live happy or live a long dull life. I think I shall compromise, smaller portions to start, drink even more water and supplement some meals with dummy tummy fillers.
My new health regimen starts now.

Gay Cannibal with a Taste for Friendship

Ex Mr Gay UK 'killed and ate dinner pal in cannibal horror', court told
A former Mr Gay UK killed a man he cooked dinner for and tried to eat his flesh, a jury heard yesterday.
Ex-chef Anthony Morley is said to have seasoned bits of thigh with fresh herbs then fried them in olive oil.
Police found six pieces of cooked flesh on a chopping board and a chewed piece in the kitchen bin.
Morley, 36 – the first Mr Gay UK in 1993 – denies murdering advertising salesman Damian Oldfield.
He claims the 33-year-old homosexual tried to rape him, the court was told.
Morley is said to have walked to a nearby takeaway in a blood-stained dressing gown and flip-flops. He asked staff to call the police then sat outside waiting to be arrested.
Mr Andrew Stubbs, QC, prosecuting, told the jury of eight women and four men at Leeds crown court that Morley was unsure of his sexuality.
But he had arranged to meet Mr Oldfield, who worked for the publishers of a gay magazine called Bent, in Leeds last April.
They exchanged text messages earlier in the day and in one of them Morley wrote: “Never been really properly gay. Tried being bi, tried being straight but never been a hundred per cent happy. Maybe one day I will find happiness.”
The pair later went back to Morley’s house in Leeds, where Morley made them both a meal.
Afterwards they went up to his bedroom and that is where the alleged attack happened, the court heard. Mr Oldfield had his throat cut while he was under the duvet and collapsed on the floor where he was stabbed numerous times, including several times after he was already dead.
Police found a nine-inch piece of skin and flesh, including a nipple, had been cut from his chest and left alongside the body with a bank card put over the gaping wound. Another eight-inch slice was cut from his thigh.
Officers found six pieces of cooked flesh from the dead man on a chopping board.
He added: “A further piece of cooked flesh which appeared to have been chewed was later found in a bin bag in the kitchen.”
Saliva on the flesh matched Morley’s DNA profile.
He allegedly told police: “Someone tried to rape me and I have killed that person.”After his arrest, he is said to have mumbled: “I cooked him a nice meal. I said to take it slow, why did he do that?”

The trial continues.

NEWS. Some Good, Some Bad Some Sad

Not a bad weekend despite the Sun disappearing and the rains arriving. Rosemary and I met people at the Soccer club(Assoc Football) on Friday and again on Saturday after visiting one of our three ex daughters in law whom we have happy times together with our two Grand daughters Tamara, and Jacinta who was celebrating her 13th birthday. Those two girls are deadly gorgeous.
We met the son of our KGV( SHIP)assoc /sec, David T (The Keyboard Player with the Top notch band; playing at the club, who informed me his father's 84th birthday was on the Sunday and would I write a message for him, duly done it read; "Wishing you a Happy Birthday on your Fourth 21st", Phil rang me about an hour ago and we had a good chat.
Today Harry L my dear friend and chairman of our Naval Assoc phoned early to inform me that three more of the KGV Ships Assoc U/K had crossed the bar, all of whom were young kids of 19 when WW2 ended all of us with 3 or more years of service in WW2. it is difficult to remember every one in a crew of 1800, But one of the nicer blokes I remember well was Peter Gavin, Lt/Cdr Retired. VALE PETER.
Ten years in retro there were 52 members of the OZ KGV Assoc, Alphabetically I topped the list, and still do with just ten following, Five are older than me and I the last of the 1945 aged 19 year olds.
The good news depending how you feel about me is "I Ain't Going Yet". It has been decided that, in four to five weeks I will be given a OP day, in order to fix my ballooning Aorta Valve, I have been informed that it is elective surgery and although not life threatening, I must still apply caution when crossing the road.
Well that's it for now, the storm outside has spoofed the TV so it seems We will be involved in chatter for the remainder of the evening, better still a shower then bed. Back soon Vest.

NOTE..... Vest said...
The last three of the dozen or so books I had a few days ago; are staying put with me. One of them is spoken for, the remaining two wrapped and saved. I shall not be wasting my precious time making pennies from selling books. All future sales will be from the publisher or B&N and Amazon. info is available from me for purchasing details. The two people who failed to send their address, after several requests, need not bother, I have no time for ditherer's, particularly number stackers.

'Bow Wow's ' Calling cards are now readable.

DNA test for dogs poo-dunnit.

COUNCILS want to DNA-test dog droppings, so they can track down owners who refuse to pick up after their pets and send them a fine.

The hardline approach, being trialled overseas, has won support from councillors in Sydney, North Sydney, Woollahra, Waverley and Ashfield.

Genetic Technologies, Australia's largest canine testing laboratory, wants to implement the DNA testing scheme and is preparing detailed submissions for councils.

It works like this: dogs would be given a mouth-swab while they're being microchipped at the vet and their DNA stored on a database.

Council rangers would collect droppings and send samples for testing to find a database match. Owners would then receive a fine notice for failing to clean up after their dogs.

Ashfield Councillor Nick Adams says dog droppings are an "enormous problem'' and has vowed to get the ball rolling on a feasibility study.

"I support this idea and would welcome any initiative that protects the health of my residents and helps clean up the area,'' he said.

A DNA-testing program is being trialled in Israel, with a reward system for pet-owners who scoop up their dog's mess and place it in specially marked bins.

Genetic Technologies, which also does crime-scene analysis for NSW police, has set up a DNA database for Melbourne's Port Phillip Council to solve dog attacks on residents and pets.

Testing director Ian Smith said DNA tests on dog droppings could be easily implemented in NSW at minimal cost.

"DNA profiling is getting cheaper and cheaper,'' he said. ``The program will raise public awareness of the problem and the fine revenue should offset the start-up of the program.''

New Woollahra Mayor Andrew Petrie said he'd support the strategy, provided it met certain criteria.

"If it wasn't an invasion of people's privacy and, legally, you could do it, then I'd be very interested to hear more on the matter,'' he said.

North Sydney Council, where dog-fouling penalties cost up to $550, is also getting behind the plans.

"I think it's a pretty good idea,'' Councillor Veronique Marchandeau said.

"It will happen here, as long as it's cost-effective. It's one of the many tools councils can use.''

Sydney City Labor councillor Meredith Burgmann said the idea should be considered, as did Liberal councillor Shayne Mallard.

"There is a minority of pet owners who aren't responsible and damage the reputation of all pet-owners,'' he said.

North Sydney dog-owner Alex McNee had mixed feelings: "I think it's a bit heavy-handed, but I'd rather they did that than shut down dog parks. You can't take dogs to beaches any more, so the parks are all we've got.''

In the wash up of this extraordinary gathering of Sydney councils, it is yet to be decided who will be given the task of collecting poo - sorry dog shit. I am thinking there will be few takers unless the rewards are generous.

Nothing can be more off putting than to go out at night or come home in a darkened area where you tread into this stinking effluent. Suddenly the whole car stinks when it is trod into the carpet, or worse still, this is true, our grand/children are visiting and in the darkness fail to see the mess our next door neighbours dogs ( 2 of them with a dog apiece)have left in our driveway grass verge, the children run into the house with it all over the carpet. When this happened on the second occasion, I sent both neighbours a cleaning bill for $40;00 each which they refused to pay. Eventually after much haggling the local council, screwed them with a heavy fine for several offences, however,we decided to move away from this situation and are now settled comfortably, Except for 3 cats our son has left in our care, who dig up our garden plants.
A few days before leaving our last residence, we had packed most of our worldly goods and we decided to visit friends for a few days. It was Australia day 26th Jan and promising to be hot, our neighbours had set up tables and chairs plus sun shelters in preparation for the the 'Big Pissup and barby in the back gardens'.
Let it be known I am not a vindictive person unless pushed to the limit, however on that hot Australia day opportunity knocked.
Before leaving I popped up the road and bought 30 kilos of concentrated chicken and cow manure in pellets , called 'Dynamic lifter' Which when wet will stink for two or three days.This was distributed equally in both front and back gardens about 10:am then two hoses on timers were turned on for ten minutes on leaving to visit our friends. Half an hour later I stopped in a lay by and phoned both my neighbours wishing them a Happy Australia day.

Vest Has Left the Building

To advise that Vest (Les Bowyer) passed away this morning. Regards, Chris (Son).
