As if we did not know.

Suella Braverman falsely claimed child grooming gangs in the UK were “almost all British-Pakistani”, according to a ruling by the press regulator, Ipso.

The home secretary made the claim in a Mail on Sunday article published in April, where she singled out British-Pakistani men as being involved in child sexual abuse due to “cultural attitudes completely incompatible with British values” that “have been left mostly unchallenged both within their communities and by wider society”.

Ipso has forced the Mail on Sunday to issue an apology and correction to Braverman’s piece after concluding the statement was false. The regulator said Braverman’s decision to link “the identified ethnic group and a particular form of offending was significantly misleading” because the Home Office’s own research had concluded offenders were mainly from white backgrounds.


Wow and double wow.

Saville and Glitter must have been born in Pakistan.

Why is she still at her job? She is waiting to stab Fishy in the back and get the top job.

After the old SwineWitch got off her broomstick, this was the response of the UN to her stupid and idiotic speech.

In a statement following Mrs Braverman's speech, the UNHCR said: "The need is not for reform, or more restrictive interpretation, but for stronger and more consistent application of the convention and its underlying principle of responsibility-sharing."


In other words fuck off with your idea of sending people to Rwanda to be assessed, only to be kept there if they win. Not that they had any intention of using such scheme in any serious way. They have made arrangements for about 200 people and there is about 40,000 per year. It did cost us about 200 million pounds though to set up the scheme. I guess it was help the Rwandans needed very much but unfortunately it ended up in the wrong hands.

It is interesting how the Swine start the fire and then fan the flames and now claiming the public is worried about migration. The use of the words swarm, invasion and illegal migration being used in the Swine media day in day out. Despite the fact that we had 40,000 odd boat people and over 1,000,000 legal migrants coming into the country last year, they are focusing on 40,000 as some sort of catalyst that will destroy us.

The swine are not even reading the conclusion of the poll correctly.

Mike Clemence, a researcher at Ipsos, said: "Immigration is becoming a bigger concern for the country, with the proportion mentioning it almost doubling since the start of the year.

"This increase is driven by rising concern among older people and Conservative Party supporters in particular. Overall, however, the public are still just as, if not more, worried about the economy, inflation and the NHS.


What does proportion doubling mean? was it 30% and now it has become 60% or was it 5% and it has become 10%. The Swine media is very good at feeding bullshit to the Simpletons.

Older people are generally conservative voters so why mention it twice. The public at large are far more interested in increased interest rate which has pushed mortgages by up to 1500 pounds a month when inflation would not have pushed their purchase to more than at best couple of hundred pounds a month. They go on about how important it is to beat inflation by using interest rates. its more like cutting peoples head of because they have a head ache. A little inflation is good for the economy. It keeps things ticking over so long as workers get a pay rise to compensate them for the increase which is entirely possible.


This idea that increased wages are inflationary is bullshit fed to the mushrooms so they can grow strong and healthy. Especially when it is for the public sector. It also equally applies to the private sector too. A percentage increase in wages does not push the price of the products they produce by the same percentage. It ain't rocket science.

This is the relentless attack Labour Party faces every day.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/labour-plots-inheritance-tax-changes-to-raid-families-and-farmers-of-millions/ar-AA1hqMFg?ocid=entnewsntp&cvid=ff35bdc675d14fb6ace9d87ce28e4f4b&ei=167

Labour plots inheritance tax changes to raid families and farmers of millions


Considering the Swine government has been in power for 13 years and house prices have gone up 73% since 2010, the families who have really got clobbered by inheritance tax are the ones who have a single home and are unable to pass it on to their children without having to live in it. Not only that but also the value people do not have pay tax have not been increased either. They have the audacity to throw mud, well swine do like a bit of mud to wallow in right?

In reality the proposal is this:

The party is reportedly planning to scrap two exemptions - agricultural and business property relief - that currently allow farms and businesses to be passed down at death without their families paying the divisive 40 percent charge.


Why do these people have exemptions?
But there is more

However, it is still not known whether Labour is considering scrapping the relief or reforming the exemption so it can no longer be used by investors who own agricultural land but are not full-time farmers.

Meanwhile, Business Relief lets families claim tax relief when inheriting business assets or shares in a company.


The only people screwed here are those individuals who worked all their lives to pay for one property and now have to pay 40% tax to transfer it to their children which means the property will be sold as most children would not be able to borrow such sums to pay for the tax. What is wrong with exempting an individual who only has one property to transfer it to the children. Most of the Swine are able to pay lawyers to avoid paying tax on billions they leave to their children and pay no inheritance tax anyway.

Our Swine have opened up a new front on trying to win votes.

Attack on the motorists is the new front. Apparently 20 m/h driving restrictions is an attack on motorists.

The fact that in an accident a car travelling 20 m/h kills 3 in 100 people and 30 m/h kills 50 in 100 does not come in to it. I suspect he is feeling let them pile sky high.

Is there no end to this nightmare?

Nothing new here.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/uk-welfare-budget-could-be-cut-to-pave-way-for-tax-cuts-says-jeremy-hunt/ar-AA1htMJo?ocid=entnewsntp&cvid=31f09b8456e24c12bffd30bb4271a78c&ei=25

He told the Times that 100,000 people a year were “moving off work into benefits without any obligation to look for work” – a sign he said showed the system was not working.
The welfare system had to be a “mix of carrot and stick”, with more assistance required to help people find work, given there was “no shortage of jobs”, he added.


While they are charging 10,000 pounds per hour for consultation on to of their MP salary, they expect people to work for less than minimum wage.

Just how out of touch are these Swine?

We seem to have managed with the 30mph limit since 1934!

And cars have become much more 'pedestrian safe' in that time.

Blanket 20mph limits are simply an attack on motorists, there is no other justification for them. Plus they cause increased pollution and problems for Emergency Services.

Perhaps instead of teaching kids that men can be women they should teach them to look both ways before jumping out into the road instead?

Seems simple enough eh? :wink:

This one is for the ignorant Swine but it would benefit everybody who wishes to understand the reason for the 20 m/h being implemented on the built up road.

Even if only one life is saved, it is worth doing. It also means less animals get killed too.

Very interesting history lesson how the Swine ruled Europe and who helped them.

The Swine are at it again. They want to ban Local Authorities from offering their workers a 4 day a week. How can that be wrong, if it is established that output does not reduce and most instances it improves. This has been trialed and tested and proven.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/michael-gove-vows-to-ban-councils-from-adopting-four-day-week-and-threatens-budget-cuts-for-slacking-services-as-he-brands-keir-starmer-spineless-and-condescending/ar-AA1hv2K9?ocid=entnewsntp&cvid=84f8fb5ef1e94452b23a53773a9fd667&ei=20

https://www.theguardian.com/money/2023/feb/21/four-day-week-uk-trial-success-pattern

The vast majority of companies taking part in the world’s largest trial of a four-day week have opted to continue with the new working pattern, in a result hailed as evidence that it could work across the UK economy.

Of the 61 companies that entered the six-month trial, 56 have extended the four-day week, including 18 who have made it permanent.

The findings will be presented to MPs on Tuesday as part of a push urging politicians to give all workers in Britain a 32-hour week.
