The Prince Of Darkness

Just An Evil Old Man

What more shame and ignominy can the Catholic Church bring upon itself?  Now it seems that the present Pope is guilty of overlooking what seems to be the favourite hobby of Catholic priests – the sexual abuse of children.

According to The Times last Saturday, in 1980 the then Cardinal Ratzinger approved a decision to send a priest for therapy in Munich after he forced an 11 year old boy to perform oral sex on him.  Later the same priest abused more children and the only answer the Cardinal and his cronies could come up with was to relocate him.  Now the Church is desperately trying to disassociate the Pope from this scandal, saying that he had left decisions to lower-level officials.  See here for the full story.

The Catholic Church has been responsible for as much evil in the world as any other institution.  Now we see that it goes to the very top and continues.

Too many have died in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call.

Crosby, Stills & Nash

It is time that this outdated institution was outlawed.  Criminal charges should be brought against the Pope and all the cardinals, priests and other apologists for sin and wickedness.  How can we in the West complain about the evil influence of Islam until we put our own house in order?

Bring Cricket Back To The BBC

with one comment

It is a disgrace that we have not been able to watch the glorious Ashes victory on TV.  I blame Murdoch.  I blame the BBC.  I blame the government.

Even if I was prepared to pay to watch something that it is my right as a British citizen to see on free-to-air television, why would I want to be paying Sky for football?  I cannot buy just the cricket or the rugby.  I have to take the ignorant, overpaid ponces, Ruski-paid whores as well!  I don’t want one second more of this moronic game for badly behaved children on my TV than I already have.

If this apology for a government that has heaped so much disgrace and ignominy on our country wanted to do one decent thing in its death throes then legislate to bring test match cricket back to the people.

Criminal Deception

with one comment

In a cold hearted, clinical and utterly callous way, we must bring “Sir” Fred Goodwin to heel, to the gutter, to grovel and to ignominy as he richly and deeply deserves.

There are many ways that the government can do this.  I suggest that the most effective is simply not to pay him and let him sue.  This is a shred2pragmatic and commercial approach but, irrespective of its outcome, simultaneously we must prosecute this fundamentally evil individual with all the vigour that honourable and decent society can muster.

If we force him to sue for the rewards of failure then he will have to make his case and I do not believe he wil be able to under the overriding doctrine of “reasonableness”.

However, in the interests of justice, denying him money is insufficient.  Nothing less than criminal punishment will suffice.  Surely,  if our tradition of common law has any relevance, it must be able to sanction his behaviour.

Lawyers must consider whether there is a case for criminal negligence, for conspiracy, for perjury or for any derivative of theft.  Our Judges must package his offences in a way that can produce serious and effective penalties.

Without doubt though this “man”, this “Sir” has deceived.  He lied to the Select Committee saying that he had received no compensation for loss of office.  He has cheated us all.  Whether he retains his obscene pension or not he must be jailed.  Only then will justice be done.

An Alternative Strategy For Israel

Instead of committing genocide, instead of murdering hundreds of innocent women and children, instead of your ridiculous, inane, self-defeating behaviour, instead of condemning your nation to everlasting shame and ignominy, why not try this?

Your much vaunted special forces and Mossad take the responsibility themselves.  No tanks, no F16s, no naval bombardment.  No more cowardice. I am sure that Britain and the US will provide support.  One SAS squadron sacrificing itself  in the name of humanity can achieve infinitely more than you very small, very pathetic, very evil little men can even conceive.  Send in dozens, perhaps hundreds of special forces to take out the rocket launchers and the Hamas leaders.  They probably suffer dozens, perhaps hundreds of casualties but as trained soldiers that is their purpose.  It is not the purpose of women and children to die for your perverse, thuggish political ends.

I truly believe that Israel has now gone beyond redemption.  Nothing can forgive what you have done.  I can deal with you as individuals, many of whom will be against what has been done in your name but as a nation you are now pariahs, outcasts and  monsters.  “Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord” and it is coming to you Israel, sooner or later, it is coming.    Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak, you will get what you deserve.
