Watching The Untrusted Implode

Welcome to The Real Untrusted

for a brief introduction to this site – read here

“The citadel of established practice seldom falls to the polite knock of a good idea. It may however yield to a long siege, a pre-emptive strike, a wooden horse or a cunning alliance.” 

————————————————–

BeautifulBurnout on the Tower Hamlets school girls:

We still don’t have any proof that they have actually gone to fight with or support ISIL either, Frog. As I mentioned the other day, the elder sister of one of the girls seemed to think they had gone off to try and find their friend and bring her back.

The BBC news today, 4 July, reported that two of the three girls, fully covered and with a woman carrying a gun, had been filmed out shopping in Syria.

—————————————————————–

The Untrusted’s Ann Tanner – (AT42) posts:

I supposed its the government I am ashamed of – and they (mis)represent us to the world. Their policies drag our name in the dirt and then ordinary people pay with their lives as they did in Tunisia today.

And I supppose she said the same about the  7 July 2005 London bombings when Blair’s (and Tanner’s) Labour Party was in government and Ken Livingstone was London Mayor?

Maybe she should attend a few of the funerals of those slaughtered so she can explain to the grieving relatives how Islamic terrorism is all the responsibility of successive Labour and Conservative government policies.

And just to prove how degenerate she’s become, here’s the UT’s resident barrister  BeautifulBurnout in full agreement with the members of the homicidal child rapists of Islamic State –

Anne – you are spot on.

—————————————————

There I was thinking the Untrusted had become as mundane as the Underground when up pops MontanaWidlhack objecting to being called “Monty” by one of the newcomers:

“…you can’t possibly be so obtuse that you don’t understand the concept of compassion, so I’m going to have to believe at this point that you’re really just an arrogant bitch who can’t be bothered being nice to people you see as inferior.”

End of You Tell Us – 28 January 2015

“Today is the last ideas thread. From tomorrow, we won’t be running these threads anymore. We still really want your ideas for articles, but we think the best way to do that will be to have a dedicated email address for people to send in suggestions. That is being set up asap. The editor of Cif, Kira Cochrane, will be running a talking shop tomorrow to explain more, but when this thread closes tomorrow there won’t be a new one. I know this will be upsetting for some, but please bear with us while we make some new changes to the site.”

 Today’s Music

As from today – (sometime in early 2013) “A Change is gonna Come” and hence the track which is from almost 500, vaguely described as pop and rock, on my MP4 player that I use mainly when I’m running at the gym or outdoors, or when I’m doing things I rather not like ironing clothes, cleaning and so on. This one by coincidence comes top of the list when arranged in alphabetical order. Of course I’ll intersperse them with some great jazz and classical music

Today’s music.

    Morning all,

    Sara, if the Turks carry on attacking the Kurds, they are shooting themselves in the foot. The Kurds’ time will come and they will get their own state eventually. The West should not kowtow to Ankara re the Kurds in the way it did to Putin on Syria.

    There can be no compromises in the situation at the moment: ISIS goes and also Assad. The Kurds are recognised by the West for their heroism against ISIS. There will be no peace until those three conditions are met and the refugees crisis – now intolerable – has been tackled (this cannot happen while Syria is in conflict and Assad still in power).

    The Guardian has really gone into zero tolerance mode for its recent surge of ‘Muslim as victim’ commentaries.

    I couldn’t make a single comment stick on the Siema Iqbal ‘I’m a Muslim woman’ piece. Apparently it was off-topic to point out that far from being a simple unpolitical Mancunian GP and mother, Iqbal is a bigoted, Jew-baiting ideologue with links to some of the most rancidly regressive Islamist groups. Not only were my comments deleted, they were vapourised to leave no trace.

    • These articles overwhelmingly attract unsympathetic comments – not surprisingly. What the editors hoped to achieve by publishing them is a mystery: in Leila Aboulela’s case she has a book to plug. To ask the question ‘why do we have to live under suspicion?’ when there’ve been hundreds of thousands of deaths world wide to terrorism done in the name of Islam, mostly with Muslim victims, and many other near-misses, seems very naive. The two Glasgow airport failed terrorists originally tried to bomb the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London and, if they’d succeeded, the death toll would have been horrific. Hundreds of British Muslims stood publicly in the street and openly demanded the murder of Salman Rushdie. This is the reason why Muslims feel they are under suspicion: unfair for most of them but surely easy to understand: it looks disingenuous to claim bewilderment as if nothing is happening.

    • brusselsexpats

       /  July 28, 2015

      Jim, Desde,

      Many Muslims are great at playing the victim card and the Guardian is fool enough to fall for it. The fact is that they are lucky to be living in tolerant Britain although that tolerance will be wearing thinner with each terrorist attack.

      Here anti-Muslim invective is getting worse and people seem less and less concerned whether it’s politically correct or not. A few more attacks in France and they can just as well hand Marine Le Pen the Presidency. Even if it doesn’t get that far the Front National will make very strong inroads.

    • JimPress

       /  July 28, 2015

      Desde, the revealing thing about Leila Aboulela is that she’s lived in some of the world’s most unpleasant and brutal countries – Qatar, Sudan, UAE – without, as far as I’m aware, writing a single word of protest against their brutal and repressive policies.

      Only the most politicised of Islamicists could possibly find it within themselves to maintain that there’s a climate of fear for Muslims in the UK while apparently having no issue with the misogyny, racism and slavery that blights the Arab world.

      You could be forgiven for thinking that Rusbridger passed the editorship to Seumas Milne.

    • Hi Jim,

      The latest post is a classic – with 694 recommends:

      The Guardian prints lots of these articles – British people of the Islamic faith moaning

      I am more than happy to supply an article listing my issues with Islam. I wouldn’t charge the Guardian a penny. If they are obliged to make a payment, it could go to Help for Heroes.

      They have my email address. I eagerly await their request

    • Hi Bru,

      I’m never disappointed at the sheer variety of visual pleasure packed into this tiny island. Last week while in Durham with a few hours to spare after the Cathedral and the walk around the medieval centre I drove them to Durham’s Heritage Coast (of Get Carter fame) and was amazed at the transformation from a coal-blackened place of destitution to miles of stunningly beautiful coastal countryside.

    • Yesterday it was Windsor Castle – and as an added bonus I took them to Eton where they climbed the wall to take photos of the playing fields and see the site of the famous game. Later I told them, quoting the Duke of Wellington – ‘It is here that the battle of Waterloo was won!’.

    Earlier i watched a C4 programme about the way homeless people are assessed to see whether they’re entitled to emergency housing .Predictably it was extremely depressing especially given the plight of those who weren’t eligible for help and who genuinely had nowhere to go.However it’s a fact that some people aren’t genuine cases so councils understandably have to be vigilant to flush them out.Whilst others are intentionally homeless so councils have no obligation to help them .However if those classified as intentionally homeless have kids or are seen as vulnerable they’re referred to social services who may put them up in a b&b until privately rented accommodation can be found for them.

    I was surprised to learn that when someone ineligible for help has nowhere but the streets to sleep the council featured- Tower Hamlets in London- will send their details to a charity who’ll try and find them.And when they do they’ll hopefully offer them them some sort of temporary accommodation even if it’s only a mattress on a floor in a church hall with several other homeless people.And i was surprised because wouldn’t it have been better if the council simply gave them the details of that charity?.For what happens if the charity can’t find the person sleeping on the street.?And then of course it’s a fact that rough sleepers are often the victims of violent crime and abuse.So surely by providing homeless people they can’t help with the details of the charity they’d be playing their part in trying to keep them safe as well as hopefully keeping them off the street at night..

    We desperately need more social housing in this country and the exploitative private rental sector needs more regulation -perhaps including the introduction of rent controls.However i have to admit i found myself getting slightly irritated by the sense of entitlement shown by a couple of the homeless people featured on tonight’s programme.One was a single mother of two teenage children who it turned out had been evicted from her property of 13 years because according to her landlady she was a nightmare tenant.Another was a single mother of one child who’d had a secure council tenancy but who’d made herself intentionally homeless by not paying her rent.For both of these mothers clearly had a bad attitude and both saw themselves as being victims even though there was some evidence they were both at least partly responsible for their plight. And whilst i know there’s a myriad of genuine reasons why people become homeless those who only have themselves to blame should be confronted with that.Including those who because they have children can’t -rightly so- be literally left out on the street..

    Reply
    • In the past, councils used to get ‘had’ by some women, (and their partner) pretending to be pregnant to get housed so most changed their policy so that they wouldn’t rehome till the baby was born. One of the more bizarre aspects of the Homeless Persons Act 1977 is that those included in the ‘vulnerable’ group are those who’ve been thrown out of council housing for anti-social behaviour and who can be re-housed by the council if they’ve children or are seen as adults at risk. The younger, childless person is at the back of the queue for housing and has no alternative but to present themselves as having a social or medical reason for being more eligible than others. It is an unpleasant system in many ways.

      Housing is one of the most serious issues facing the country but it’s tied in with low wages of course. If a political party was set up solely to deal with this, I’d vote for them. Not having a decent, safe affordable home can mean that life crumbles.

    Left wing fascists hound Holocaust survivor

    ‘Israel came into existence as a result of a holocaust. A European Holocaust. One of the former leaders of the so-called Palestine Solidarity Campaign Francis Clarke-Lowes was actually expelled for being a Holocaust denier. Even the far left and their fellow travellers couldn’t allow that view usually confined to neo-Nazi’s to exist (at least openly) in their organisation. I say “openly” as so many delegates voted against his expulsion. Disgraceful. So it comes as no surprise to me that these far left anti-imperialist types hounded a Holocaust survivor. The Daily Express
    http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/593045/Holocaust-survivor-festival-Left-wing-mob-Nazi-Palestine reports: Henry Schachter set up the Bournemouth Action for Israel stand at the Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival in Dorset to provide an alternative view to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s stall which regularly appears at the event. But the 76-year-old said he and his colleagues were forced to retreat amid “intimidating and virulent” abuse by Left-wing Palestine supporters who were all white English people. Mr Schachter, whose Jewish parents were killed by the Nazis, said his group was compared to the BNP during last week’s incident in which a “flashmob” threw pamphlets to the ground and tried to deface the stand.

    Mr Schachter said: “As a survivor of the Holocaust it makes me feel disgusted and sad to be called things like a Nazi. The Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival is exactly the place for people from different organisations to exercise freedom of speech. “But it was anything but free speech. It was intimidating and virulent abuse by a flashmob of far-Left bullies.”

    The PSC apparently claim they “raised the matter of the presence of the stall peacefully”. Still wanted him banned though. They only want a one sided view, their view to dominate.

    It’s not clear who these people were from the report but those responsible for these actions are the new fascists.

    The far left IS the new far right.

    I have a message for these evil thugs.

    We will never go quietly into the night again. We will fight you for our right to exist.

    Never again!

    • Hi Sara,

      So sorry to hear about your health problems but hope you take Desde’s advice and just wash your hair and head in water, and nothing else.

      And it’s an indication of the depths of their political depravity and ignorance that the current day Left all too conveniently forget the contribution that Jewish activists have made to the trade union movement.

      But then when did principle trump opportunism where the modern revolutionary Left is concerned?

    • It’s good that they’ve challenged Smith and continue to do so. Their language is measured and avoids the emotional stuff of those left without enough money or forced to look for work they can’t possibly do. Others would be more forthright with Smith – either way it’s water off a duck’s back. The solution might be high profile cases on the television but unfortunately those who suffer aren’t those considered important: they’re not today’s celebrities or rich.

      I’ve an anthropologist friend who specialises in ‘European early modern human’ evolution.

      I think she’d be fascinated to discover that Cro-Magnon man is alive and well and living in a caravan in Yorkshire. Whether or not these ‘people’ could speak has long been a subject of debate, so it’s fairly earth-shattering to discover that they’ve evolved to the point where they communicate via the internet.

      Deano just might be this century’s coelocanth.

      Good point and one that crosses my mind from time to time but the only people I’ve met who claim to have made a killing trading shares, and there must be a lot, seem rather reluctant to provide the kind of financial evidence required by visa issuing authorities, so they tend to end up not being clients.

      Yes those teeth are what surprised me as it wasn’t a particularly large fox. I dare say they’d also surprise those people who think they’re cute as fluffy bunnies.

    • That’s a good one. Reminds me of a leaflet I was given by some Muslim men who were handing them out (mostly to men) at Stratford shopping centre – it read that divorce and abortion occurred because England is a democracy.

    • Just think how some would react to that photo: don’t you know that England didn’t invent cricket – or anything at all – that Tudor half-timbered houses were stolen from the Aborigines, that churches, cars, lampposts and trees were all appropriated from indigenous peoples subjected to colonialism, that the flag on the church is a symbol of oppression….

      Sara – you’ll have to be very insistent that this gets properly sorted out. Take someone with you when you next see a doctor. Perhaps go to A&E and demand to be properly examined and get results from tests. Your health is the most important thing but the job and money situation is important too. Can you just rinse your hair with water at the moment – shampoo may inflame it again?

      Hi Sara

      Hope you had better luck with the latest doctor you saw.

      With regard to the latest developments in the Middle East i must admit i didn’t see that coming.For Turkey are now clearly trying to kill two birds with one stone.And given it’s strategically a vitally important ally for America in the NATO alliance i’m not sure much will be done within NATO to put pressure on Turkey to desist from attacking the Kurds in Iraq and focus exclusively on the threat from ISIS.

      This growing involvement of Turkey is certainly upping the ante in that region and further fuels my concerns as to what could happen if NATO resorts to full scale military intervention to halt the spread of ISIS.For all hell could break loose and in ways the West may be seriously underestimating given the complexities of Middle Eastern politics.Plus Putin is hovering and as things hot up in the Arab world and the world’s attention is on what’s happening there he may use that as an excuse to up the ante himself in the Ukraine and Moldova. And may try and use the ethnic Russian populations in Estonia and Latvia-both NATO allies-to destabilize those countries as well.

      Like you i really do fear for the Kurds who’re heroically fighting the threat from ISIS without being given the level of support they need.But who may once again end up in the crossfire of global politics and shifting alliances…I know that sounds really negative and depressing but there’s a real risk the Kurds may get sold down the river even more so than has hitherto been the case,
