British schoolchildren could be encouraged to join in citizenship ceremonies and to swear allegiance to the Queen under proposals to be published by ministers today.
Pupils could be asked to give a commitment to Queen and country in the ceremonies, which are similar to those held for new immigrants, under the plans being unveiled by former Attorney General Lord Goldsmith.
Considering the fact that the Royals are not really British, and the Queen has given her Royal Assent to all of the EU Treaties (committing Treason), pledging allegiance to her would be like worshipping Brussels.
No thanks. This is supposed to be a democracy, and sovereignty should rest with Westminster, not Buckingham Palace. Bollocks to the Royals. The monarchy should be abolished in my opinion, it’s past it’s Sell-By-Date.
Five regions of Britain now depend more on the taxpayer than on their own earnings, according to a new report.
The growing state share of the economy since then in parts of the country has brought charges that some regions are more dependent on public spending than former communist countries in the old Soviet bloc used to be.
There have also been accusations that taxpayers’ money is going disproportionately to regions where voters are most loyal or most important to Labour.
But while around six pounds out of every ten spent are provided by the taxpayer in Northern Ireland, Wales and the North East, some parts of the country get little more than a third of their wealth from the state.
The lowest state share of the economy-at 34.1 per cent, is in the South East. The calculations say that overall public spending has risen since 2001 from 39 per cent to 43 per cent of British gross domestic product – the value of all goods and services.
Textbook case of redistribution of wealth, right out of the communist play book. By ripping off one part of the country the government prevent them from gaining any real financial freedom. Then they redistribute the wealth earned by taxpayers and give it to regions loyal to Labour, so they are more likely to vote for them. Isn’t universal democracy wonderful! The same goes with massive immigration, a lot of which end up on taxpayer-funded housing and benefits. So soon as they get their passport they’d vote for whoever is dishing out the cheques.
Of course, this behaviour enables the government to pauperise the taxpayer (destroying competitiveness and the economy) and buy the loyalty of more and more of the country.
I have written more about these issues here.
Now something for the global warming alarmists.
New derivation of equations governing the greenhouse effect reveals “runaway warming” impossible
Miklós Zágoni isn’t just a physicist and environmental researcher. He is also a global warming activist and Hungary’s most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocol. Or was.That was until he learned the details of a new theory of the greenhouse effect, one that not only gave far more accurate climate predictions here on Earth, but Mars too. The theory was developed by another Hungarian scientist, Ferenc Miskolczi, an atmospheric physicist with 30 years of experience and a former researcher with NASA’s Langley Research Center.
Miskolczi’s story reads like a book. Looking at a series of differential equations for the greenhouse effect, he noticed the solution — originally done in 1922 by Arthur Milne, but still used by climate researchers today — ignored boundary conditions by assuming an “infinitely thick” atmosphere. Similar assumptions are common when solving differential equations; they simplify the calculations and often result in a result that still very closely matches reality. But not always.
NASA refused to release the results. Miskolczi believes their motivation is simple. “Money”, he tells DailyTech. Research that contradicts the view of an impending crisis jeopardizes funding, not only for his own atmosphere-monitoring project, but all climate-change research. Currently, funding for climate research tops $5 billion per year.
Miskolczi resigned in protest, stating in his resignation letter, “Unfortunately my working relationship with my NASA supervisors eroded to a level that I am not able to tolerate. My idea of the freedom of science cannot coexist with the recent NASA practice of handling new climate change related scientific results.”
The conclusions are supported by research published in the Journal of Geophysical Research last year from Steven Schwartz of Brookhaven National Labs, who gave statistical evidence that the Earth’s response to carbon dioxide was grossly overstated. It also helps to explain why current global climate models continually predict more warming than actually measured.
The equations also answer thorny problems raised by current theory, which doesn’t explain why “runaway” greenhouse warming hasn’t happened in the Earth’s past. The new theory predicts that greenhouse gas increases should result in small, but very rapid temperature spikes, followed by much longer, slower periods of cooling — exactly what the paleoclimatic record demonstrates.
Shhh! Don’t tell that to the alarmists!
His theory was eventually published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal in his home country of Hungary.
The real reason for perpetuating the man-made global warming myth is so the elites can do this like this:
UN expert, Jean Ziegler, has called the use of crops to produce biofuels as a replacement for common petrol “a crime against humanity” saying it would bring about starvation for millions.
Mr Ziegler said the mad dash to convert foodstuff to fuel was a recipe for disaster and called for a five year ban on the practice.
The IMF announced last week that it had grave concern on the issue, saying the rising grain prices seen in the world’s markets of late would have disastrous effects for the poor.
The establishment press is affording sober gravitas to a Carnegie Institution report that calls for carbon emissions to be reduced to near zero in order to combat global warming, without mentioning the fact that such a move would return man to the stone age if not end civilization as we know it and kill billions.
“Their findings, published in separate journals over the past few weeks, suggest that both industrialized and developing nations must wean themselves off fossil fuels by as early as mid-century in order to prevent warming that could change precipitation patterns and dry up sources of water worldwide.”
Global transport of any kind would cease, manufacturing and production would be a thing of the past, the global economy would crumble, communications would go dark as computer networks and the Internet are abolished. Millions would freeze to death as a result of not being able to heat their homes.
The sheer ludicrousness of the Carnegie report is on a parallel with a March 2007 New York Times editorial, which subtly pushed the notion that humans emit carbon dioxide when they exhale, therefore should all be taxed for breathing!
