Shock San Francisco-based conservative talk radio host Michael Savage has been banned from the United Kingdom.
Sixteen people banned from entering the UK were “named and shamed” by the Home Office today.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said she decided to make public the names of 16 people banned since October so others could better understand what sort of behaviour Britain was not prepared to tolerate.

The list includes hate preachers, anti-gay protesters and a far- right US talk show host.

“I think it’s important that people understand the sorts of values and sorts of standards that we have here, the fact that it’s a privilege to come and the sort of things that mean you won’t be welcome in this country,” Ms Smith told GMTV.

“Coming to this country is a privilege. If you can’t live by the rules that we live by, the standards and the values that we live by, we should exclude you from this country and, what’s more, now we will make public those people that we have excluded.

“We are publishing the names of 16 of those that we have excluded since October. We are telling people who they are and why it is we don’t want them in this country.”

She said the number of people excluded from Britain had risen from an average of two a month to five a month since October.

The list of the 16 “least wanted” includes radio talk show host Michael Savage, real name Michael Weiner.

“This is someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country,” Ms Smith told BBC Breakfast.

This is why over the top and an overreaction by the Gordon Brown government. But, hey it is their country and sets an example to the world as to the tolerance of the British – which they aren’t very, apparently.

Savage laughed the ban off today.

“When I woke up and saw this this morning … my first thought was, damn, there goes the summer trip where I planned to have my dental work done,” the “Savage Nation” host joked. “My second thought was, darn … there goes my visit to the restaurants of England for their great cuisine.”

Yet, later Savage said he was contemplating legal action against Britain’s top homeland security offical Jacqui Smith.

What a stupid decision to include America’s third rated radio talk show host on an undesirable list with neo-Nazis, skinheads and Islamic terrorists.

And, what if Savage calls for a boycott of travel to Britain? How much will that cost the Brown government?

In the meantime, Savage’s ratings no doubt will increase, with the concomitant advertising dollars.

Michael Savage banned all the way to the bank.

Sharia Law OK for Britain Says Top Judge

Lord Chancellor and Justice Minister Jack Straw and Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips of Worth Matavers in London July 4, 2007

Sharia Law may be used to resolve disputes among Muslims in England says the most senior judge, Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips.

Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips said that Islamic legal principles could be employed to deal with family and marital arguments and to regulate finance.

He declared: ‘It is possible in this country for those who are entering into a contractual agreement to agree that the agreement shall be governed by a law other than English law.’

In his speech in an East London mosque Lord Phillips signalled approval of sharia principles as a means of settling disputes so long as no punishments that conflict with the established law are involved, and as long as divorces are made to comply with the civil law.

But his remarks – which give the green light from the highest judicial office to the informal sharia courts already operated by numerous mosques – provoked a storm of criticism.

The British system of law has always been perverted with religion – look at Henry the VIII and the Church of England as a prime example.

Now, Americans have reinforced why there is a “wall of separation” between church and state written into the first amendment to the United States Constitution.

Let this be a warning to the United States Supreme Court who has some members who wish to use international law in deciding cases.

Mixed Signals from Britain on Iraq War – Is the Alliance Over?

Posted on

President Bush, right, and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown participate in a joint press availability at Camp David, Md., Monday, July 30, 2007.

Mixed signals on the Iraq War are coming from Britain and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

And, Britain insists that they will remove their troops from Iraq irrespective of the United States.

Gordon Brown has paved the way for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq by telling George Bush he would not delay their exit in order to show unity with the United States.

After four hours of one-to-one talks with the US President at his Camp David retreat, Mr Brown told a joint press conference he would make a Commons statement in October on the future of the 5,500 British troops in the Basra region.

The Bush administration, under mounting domestic pressure to produce an exit strategy from Iraq, has been nervous that a full British withdrawal would add to the criticism. But Mr Brown made clear – and President Bush accepted – that Britain would go its own way, even if that gave the impression the two countries were diverging.

Yet, there was this coming from the White House.

President Bush and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown forged a unified stand on Iraq Monday, aiming to head off talk of a splintering partnership in the face of an unpopular war.

“There’s no doubt in my mind he understands the stakes of the struggle,” Bush said of Brown after two days of talks at the tranquil presidential retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains.

The visit was closely watched for any sign of daylight between the president and prime minister after four years of unwavering support by Tony Blair, Brown’s predecessor. Blair was saddled with the nickname “poodle” by critics at home he felt he was too compliant with Bush’s policies, particularly in Iraq.

Brown told Bush that he shares the U.S. view of gradually turning over security of Iraq to its own people, based on signs of clear progress and advice from military leaders.

“We have duties to discharge and responsibilities to keep in support of the democratically elected government,” Brown said of Britain’s commitment to Iraq.

Still, as the U.S. has built up troops, Britain has been pulling them out.

Let the British wankers leave with their tails between their legs.

Iran bitch slapped them earlier this year and they took it with a stupid smile.

Has the UK – America alliance been broken?

No, but it is headed towards a re-evaluation. America can NO longer count on the Brits.

How to Prevent Glasgow Airport-Like Attacks – BOLLARDS

Posted on
Share

An example of the use of bollards at the United States Capitol

Glasgow-like attacks are preventable

MEASURES IN PLACE OR ARE PLANNED AT AREA AIRPORTS

Could a bomb-laden car ram into a crowded U.S. airport terminal like the attempted recent terror attack in Glasgow, Scotland?

Security analysts say “yes” in most U.S. airports, including all three major Bay Area airports. On the other hand, the same security measure that helped thwart the Glasgow attack can and in most cases will be put into place on this side of the Atlantic.

“We still have time; we don’t have to wait until this comes to us,” said Texas-based security consultant Issy Boim, who helped develop El Al Israel Airlines’ legendary security regime. “We need to think in a different way and actually find the right solution. In this type of business, even if it’s not popular and the threat exists, you cannot ignore the threat.”

The way to stop flaming explosive-laden cars from slamming into a crowded terminal, as the driver of an SUV attempted to do June 30 in Glasgow, is to put up sturdy posts called bollards.

Bollards already protect a variety of iconic buildings such as San Francisco’s iconic Transamerica Pyramid and government office buildings. They’re already partly in use at San Francisco International Airport, and officials are planning to install them at Oakland International Airport and in new and remodeled terminals at Mineta San Jose International Airport as well.

The often decoratively embellished posts reportedly kept attackers from ramming the crowded Glasgow terminal, and their usefulness is well-known in security circles.

At Glasgow last week:

An off duty policeman sprays water at a burning bomber (Dr. Khalid Ahmed) who tried to ignite explosives at Glasgow Airport – note the bollards.

Flap says install them. Assume the worst……..it certainly saved the folks in Glasgow.
