Labour luvvie lawyer Geoffrey Robinson is wrong to criticise Boris Johnson’s proposals that we can change our laws to presume that someone who goes to Syria “without good reason” is a terrorist, says Frederick Forsyth in today’s Daily Express. Boris said that under these circumstances their British citizenship should be withdrawn.Former Attorney General Dominic Grieve backed Robinson, but according to Mr. Forsyth, they are talking cobblers.
There are already three areas where the accused has to prove their innocence, not the other way around. Continue reading

Boris Johnson might have created a huge furore amongst the weak kneed lefties this side of the pond, by insisting on strong action to prevent extremism and radicalisation, but his red blooded attitude is being praised to the skies on US Fox TV.He has a long list of admirers on US TV, and the Independent reports: “In the London Mayor’s most recent newspaper column, he said that British citizens who travel to “war areas” such as Iraq and Syria should be presumed possible terrorists until they can prove themselves innocent.
Johnson’s call for a tougher stance to deal with British extremists came after a video last week showed a suspected Islamic State (Isis) militant from the UK killing the US journalist James Foley. Continue reading
After the horrific tragedy of the murder of James Foley, it is blatantly obvious, we need action and fast. This is the subject of Boris Johnson’s Daily Telegraph article today.Boris begins: “Let’s assume he is indeed who he sounds like – another deluded British-born jihadi. I am afraid I have listened, on the Telegraph website, to the voice of the man who claims to be the killer of James Foley, and there seems little doubt that he grew up in this country. He was probably born in our wonderful NHS. He was schooled in our broadly excellent education system. He and his family have very likely spent their lives, like the rest of us, cushioned by our welfare state. And this is how he chooses to pay back the gift of nurture – by engaging in terrorism, declaring his allegiance to a novel barbarian state, and publicly beheading an entirely innocent journalist.

David Cameron striding purposefully into the surf in a wet suit, Obama, after a stern denunciation of IS, heading for the golf course left the people bemused. What is going on?A small article in the Daily Mail quoting a US psychologist made an interesting point though.* Dr. Pam Rutledge, a noted US psychologist had this to say: “After such a terrifying event as the beheading of James Foley, the terrorist wants to see a knee jerk response that suggests they have changed our world view. Instead they see messages that say it is business as usual.” Continue reading
After the horrific murder of Lee Rigby, David Cameron set up an “extremist taskforce” to prevent youths being brainwashed by Jihadists. Theresa May, in May 2013, spoke of the danger of 1,000s of young Muslims being radicalised, and how urgent action was required.As reported in the Daily Mail today, there was outrage when David Cameron was forced to admit absolutely nothing has been done to put the plans into effect. Not one of the main recommendations has been implemented. Continue reading
At first, because of the biased reporting of the BBC and Channel 4’s Jon Snow, Hamas, in spite of all the facts, won the media war hands down. Israel were branded child murderers, with no right on their side. A wave of anti-semitic attacks swept Europe.Now a rather different aspect of the war has grabbed the headlines. The US journalist, James Foley, was brutally butchered on video by Jihadist John, of IS. Recent photographs show Hamas vying in cruelty with IS, about to slaughter 18 collaborators who oppose their regime, including two women, on air. Continue reading

Many voters seem to thnk that UKIP are the new kids on the block. From the non-stop bragging of Nigel Farage, voters get the impression that UKIP has loads of MPs at Westminster and is about to storm Number 10.The truth is that UKIP has failed since the party started in 1993 to win one Parliamentary seat and the pressure is really on now. They don’t even have one seat in the London Assembly, unike the Green Party who have two seats, (Green Jenny Jones and Darren Johnson) and have a strong presence there. The Greens also have an MP in Brighton. In 2004, UKIP won two seats on the Assembly, but both these members left UKIP to later stand as independents, when they lost. They have since failed to win any London Assembly seats at all. Continue reading
