Boris Johnson took the lead on suggesting tough measures and was praised to the skies by Greg Gutfeld of Fox News for not “cowering in the face of terrorism.” Do nothing and the tide of terror will be at our door, said the Mayor.Our PM then made a strong speech and was praised by Fox News for showing leadership and decisive action in the face of a severe security threat. The police and our security forces have all agreed that Boris was right in saying if anyone went to Syria or Iraq they should say why. On their return, their passports should be removed and/or they should be arrested. Continue reading
Boris Johnson may be standing as MP for Uxbridge but his position on a third runway for Heathrow has not moved an inch. In his latest article in the Daily Telegraph this morning, that is made crystal clear.Boris begins: “There is no government in the Western world that would even contemplate an act so self-defeating, so short-termist, and so barbarically contemptuous of the rights of the population. That is why all three main parties have correctly ruled out expansion of Heathrow airport, in the form of a third runway. Continue reading
If you were looking for material for Comedy Central, you could do no better than to examine the records of some of the UKIP members who are standing as local councillors, were the matter not so serious. These problems have all occurred in the short space of a year.
UKIP’s Matthew Smith on a fraud charge
Let’s start with the UKIP councillor for Henley-on-Thames. David Sylvester warned PM David Cameron that if gay marriage were legalised, disaster would befall the UK. Reiterating his views on BBC Radio Oxford, he added: “God wants all gay men to repent and be healed.” Continue reading
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 Boris said that under these circumstances their British citizenship should be withdrawn.Former Attorney General Dominic Grieve backed Robinson, but according to Mr.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
