April 2006 Thought for the Week:
it Please Your Majesty,
On the occasion of your 80th birthday, and in the 54th
year of your reign,
we express our deep
affection and appreciation for your dedicated service to your people.
Save The Queen!
THE QUEEN OF AUSTRALIA
from David Flint's
"In this column on 5 April, 2006 I told of an eye witness report
from a man who had been at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. He
said that when Dame Kiri sang Happy Birthday, about 90% of the crowd, without
any invitation to do so, stood, faced The Queen and joined in.
When Dame Kiri
went into God Save The Queen, almost everyone stood and boomed out the words.
He said you could feel the love and affection for The Queen across the stadium
of 80,000 people. I told him of a band of young constitutional monarchists who
had distributed several thousand copies of both anthems outside the MCG.
eye witness Hans Paas of Newport, confirms that this report was correct.
writes that "The vast crowd joined into the singing of Happy Birthday but then
took a few moments to realise what Dame Kiri had gone on to sing and within another
few seconds everyone in the stadium was on their feet singing with the same gusto
we had sung Advance Australia Fair earlier. Then at the end there was a roar from
the crowd and a sustained standing ovation.
My partner was watching Her Majesty
through binoculars and observed everyone in the Royal Box slowly getting to their
feet as they realised what was happening. The two Royal Princes must have realised
that this was a Royal Salute after all and stood - awkwardly at first - as if
they were not sure of the protocol. Then Prince Phillip leaned down and urged
Her Majesty to stand.
Clearly our Queen was stunned by the affirmation and
acclamation of the crowd. Unlike during the Golden Jubilee celebrations she had
not prepared herself for this great gesture of affection. We could all tell that
she must have been moved.
In a way it turned out better because the crowd
decided on what the right protocol was and left it to the misguided politicians
to join us.
I know I am biased but I think everyone felt they wanted to snatch
this opportunity to show how they felt about this marvellous lady.
sound lame in this macho era but love was really in the air. You could just tell
that whatever the people in that crowd think about our constitutional future,
we were in the presence of the most famous woman in the world and we loved it
A footnote about Advance Australia
It was also sung with great gusto but I had a sense that it was
sung to The Queen as she stood there on the dais apart from the other dignitaries.
Her arrival had been greeted with much applause and cheering but then we really
wanted to sing our National Anthem for our Queen
There can be no doubt
- the rank and file Australian honours and respects The Queen of Australia."
"FREEDOM OF THOUGHT :
Part 1 : AFRICANS AND CRIME
by Ian Wilson
Professor Andrew Fraser, who raised controversy last year when he questioned
the government policy of flooding Australia with large numbers of African refugees,
has been found to have made unlawful statements under the Racial Discrimination
Professor Fraser said in a letter published in the Parramatta Sun
newspaper that expanding a black population was a "sure-fire recipe" for increased
crime and violence. American black crime statistics and other evidence allegedly
support such claims.
Considerable media controversy
occurred as did the suspension of Professor Fraser from teaching at Sydney's Macquarie
University. The Sudanese Darfurian Union also complained to the Human Rights and
Equal Opportunity Commission. The Australian of 4/3/06, p.3 reports that
the Jewish Board of Deputies' president David Knoll helped in preparation of the
complaint by the Sudanese.
Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission
Chairman John von Doussa found that Professor Fraser's remarks were unlawful because
they amounted to a "sweeping generalisation" not backed by research, so that Fraser's
section 18 D defence of comments "made for genuine academic purposes in the public
interest" was not met. Section 18 D was to give people the right to comment on
controversial topics and maintain freedom of speech. At the time when the legislation
was drafted the politicians said that race hate laws would not prevent the criticism
of immigration matters. I was present at a Melbourne meeting when I heard such
assurances. Of course it was a lie.
The powerful ethnic groups that supported
this legislation - and this included representatives of the professional ethnics
of almost all non-Anglo Saxon groups - also maintained that freedom of speech
on immigration and race matters would not be affected. Case after case has shown
If controversial remarks are made about a non-Anglo Saxon group
then it will be found that the remarks were not made "reasonably" because, with
circular logic, no "reasonable person" today could hold that position! I have
seen this type of circular reasoning in all of the written judgements which I
have sighted where judges have decided race-hate cases and I have commented about
this legal flaw previously in these publications.
I have not seen the reasoning
given by the HREOC chairman John von Doussa so logically I cannot yet make this
The Australian article says that von Doussa concluded
that Professor Fraser's comments were not made with "sufficient constraints and
proportionality" - whatever that means. How could controversial social criticism
in the past - by Marx, Voltaire, Rousseau and Socrates - have been made with "sufficient
constraints and proportionality"? Doesn't the "constraint" requirement just beg
the very question of the debate?
As a legal hypothetical consider this
one: is it possible for a reasonable person X to express doubts about the
Holocaust (either that it occurred or the six million figure) with "sufficient
constraints and proportionality"? By this I don't mean that person X establishes
that revisionism is true, but only makes a public expression of that position
in principle within the bounds of section 18 D.
I am willing to bet that it
is humanly impossible to do this even as a legal skills exercise. Thus there really
is no section 18 D defence for controversial and extremist views.
As a matter
of judicial definition section 18 D defences will not cover "extremist" views
- and extremist views now include criticisms of African migration. Such views
are never "genuine" or "reasonably' held - by definition.
of 4/3/06, p.3 quotes NSW Jewish Board of Deputies president David Knoll,
who helped prepare the complaint, as greeting the HREOC decision as (what the
article calls) "an important milestone". Knoll is quoted to have said: "I have
no difficulty with legitimate academic discourse but there is no such thing as
freedom of hatred". Really?
What this means is that there is no freedom of
speech of extremist thought. But what is "extremist" thought? Typically this expression
refers to thought that a powerful interest group does not like. And what about
"extremist" thought made in past historical documents? The Old Testament would
not find a publisher today if it was written as an original work in the present
climate of politically correct Australia. Nor would many classic political and
artistic works which constitute the classical canons of Western civilisation.
Shakespeare and Marx would be race- haters.
Today as we all know, undemocratic
immigration and multicultural policies have changed and are changing the historical
and ethnic profile of Australia. Publications of this movement by writers better
versed in history than I have documented these policies of perfidy. Although I
didn't once believe it, I have come to accept in recent months that this is a
"conspiracy" to ethnically dilute and eliminate Anglo Saxon Australians. This
is an act of genocide according to the UN definition. The multicultural industry
which works to produce a sense of historical guilt is also participating in a
hate crime. Race hate laws effectively act to silence criticisms of this grand
act of "race hate", so that our kind can pass away, quietly, with no effective
protest at all.
It is about time that one of these race-hate cases is taken
to the High Court. Of course I don't dream that there is a chance of victory,
but what it will definitely show is the true extent of freedom of speech in Australia.
Professor Fraser's case would be a good one to make a stand upon.
THE WAR AGAINST BOYS
"What's Wrong With Boys" by Susan Maushart (The Weekend Australian
Magazine, 8-9/4/06) deals with a problem existing right across the West.
are failing to compete academically with girls. Nor are boys doing as well as
they once did. Although some feminists like to think that this is due to greater
female intellect, the hard IQ data doesn't support them. Professor Richard Lynn
has concluded that males have, generally, a higher IQ than women. Most IQ researchers
accept that there are more male geniuses - and idiots - than females. Female IQ
is nested more around the mean on the bell curve; there is greater variance in
It is not a matter of raw intellect. Boys don't even volunteer to
be school prefects anymore, and nor are boys turning to sports.

boys outnumber girls five to one. Christina Hoff Sommers, a US academic who is
an outspoken female critic of feminism, has recently published a book on this
topic, entitled, naturally enough "The War Against Boys". Male culture is under
attack by a feminist elite and boys are the victims.

are horrible politically correct places where children are indoctrinated about
new class values, guilt about Aborigines and the "invasion", the joys of multiculturalism
and the evils of competition. Exams are out and so are true or false answers.
Children now have to "reflect" and write journals. All of this nonsense benefits
girls. Women conform better to oppression than men. Many women, for example, in
every war known to mankind, have been prepared to ultimately mate with the enemy
rather than fight to the death. I say this not to fault women but to state a long
forgotten truth of socio-biology. It makes evolutionary sense for women to conform
in this way, and many sociological studies of female conformity and compliance
with authority back this up.
Note again that
this is only a statistical generalisation: there are many dynamic women out there
full of courage who refuse to conform to the new class ideology and I think that
our League ladies are of this moral fibre. If only there were more of you!
crushing anti-male environment of the modern classroom is highly destructive of
young male creativity. Instead of learning about heroes of their race they are
sprayed with politically correct poison. How could anyone do well in such an oppressive
environment? The old school system was never unfair in this way against girls.
A 2001 survey done by Professor Faith Trent of Flinders University in Adelaide
of 6000 teenage boys, found that boys in general felt "betrayed, disrespected
and discriminated against at school." Peter West, author of "What is the Matter
with Boys?" argues that education has been "profoundly feminised" and that boys
have been undermined by "overt messages about political feminism."
this has been part of the grand plan to destroy our people.

enemy to break us down and ultimately destroy us. Feminism is the "divide and

male. Without the warrior, the race quickly topples. In fact one can work and
breed with the females as they all go down, in a genocidal exercise in economic

"Put National Security Ahead of Economic Interests," The Australian 30/3/06,
Jin points out that although China is a signatory of the nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty, this is just ink on paper for China. It has signed human rights treaties
which it also has ignored. China doesn't abide to World Trade Organisation requirements
to open up its banking system and "China has shown nothing but contempt for intellectual
property rights." China does what it wants. Why should China be trusted?
Jin reminds us: "Let us not forget China where the private meetings of Christians
in their homes are raided by police; where there are reports Falun Gong practitioners
are placed in barbed wire camps and tortured; where an individual is sent to jail
for seven to ten years for doing nothing but posting internet messages about democracy."

"In my view, freedom of speech means the freedom to say things to
other people that they don't want to hear," Irving told Britain's Sky News
television in an interview from his prison. "And if that causes offence to them,
then that's partly their problem and partly mine.
"Freedom of speech is the
right to be wrong, basically. Sometimes I'm wrong." Irving, 67, pleaded guilty
on a charge dating from 1989 of denying the Nazi extermination of six million
Jews in Europe during World War II, but insisted that he no longer questioned
the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz concentration camp.
The court in
Vienna sentenced him to three years in prison. He told Sky News that he
had heard that there was an effort in Austria to extend his sentence, which he
dismissed as an attempt to silence him, saying: "I come from a free country and
I'm not going to let anybody silence me."
SURE! 'AUSSIE' TONY REALLY VALUES PEERAGES
"Men are tired to disgust with money politics. They
hope for salvation from somewhere or other, from some real thing of honour, of
inward nobility, of unselfishness and duty."
Scotsman, UK has broken the news:
'Tony Blair will return from
his Easter break this week to face a police investigation into the most damaging
political scandal of his premiership. Senior government figures are expected to
be interviewed by police officers this week over the "cash for honours" crisis
and insiders said last night the Prime Minister was being briefed by lawyers who
believe he may have to make a statement in the ongoing investigation.
sources said they believed it was "inevitable" that Mr Blair would at least make
a statement to police. Downing Street sources said the Prime Minister, who has
spent the past week working from his country residence at Chequers, would "co-operate
with any requests from police" although none had been received to date.
the corruption inquiry threatening to derail Mr Blair's premiership, his advisers
have also been preparing a major damage limitation exercise this week to try to
keep the scandal away from Number 10."
Blair 'on the rack' over cash-for-peerages puzzle?
But with key advisers
to the Prime Minister being drawn into the affair almost daily, it is becoming
increasingly difficult to deflect attention from what has become a potentially
catastrophic scandal for Mr Blair.
David Miliband, the Cabinet minister tipped
as a potential successor to Mr Blair, was the most high-profile government figure
to be embroiled in the "cash for honours" affair this weekend. It emerged yesterday
that he was named by Des Smith - the former government adviser arrested last week
by Scotland Yard detectives - in a conversation with an undercover reporter.
Smith reportedly advised that businessmen seeking honours should "go for Miliband"
with offers to back city academies. "I'll introduce him [the businessman] to David
Miliband and say, 'Knighthood? This is the man'," said Mr Smith in a meeting with
A spokeswoman for Mr Miliband denied
any suggestion that he had ever nominated anyone for an honour for backing an
academy or any other form of government sponsorship. She said: "Mr Miliband has
made clear that he only met with Mr Smith on a small number of occasions. He did
so in his capacity as an education minister and Des Smith in his capacity as a
Up to his neck in the scam?
It also emerged yesterday that Scotland Yard was extending its inquiry into
whether cash was exchanged for government contracts, and had devoted more officers
to the case. Plain-clothes detectives have seized e-mails and documents from the
Cabinet Office as part of their investigation
Meanwhile, a senior official
at the centre of the party's fundraising machine claimed Mr Blair was "up to his
neck" in a "scam" to reward financial backers with seats in the House of Lords.
Labour's former head of high-value fundraising, alleged on a website that Number
10 was "running a party within a party - Blair, Lord Levy, Matt Carter and chairman
Ian McCartney were all complicit in the scam, and I knew absolutely nothing about
Mr Bowes questioned whether the Prime Minister was committed to
reforming the House of Lords "as it may just rob him of his one first-class way
of rewarding big donors and sponsors of city academies". The web entries, made
last month, also accused Mr Blair of devising his own "lavender list" of honours,
a nod to former Labour prime minister Harold Wilson's nominations that led to
allegations of corruption.
Mr Blair yesterday faced demands to suspend all
nominations to the House of Lords until the cash for peerages allegations had
been cleared up.
Martin Bell, a former MP
who ousted the Tory Neil Hamilton on an independent "anti-sleaze" ticket, led
demands along with Angus MacNeil, the SNP MP who raised the issue of potential
abuses of honours with police.
In a joint letter to the Prime Minister,
Mr Bell and Mr MacNeil said:
"You will realise by now the seriousness
of the cash-for-honours scandal with the first arrest now having been made. We
suggest you no longer attempt to dismiss this lightly."
These are the names
being linked to the loans-for-peerages affair:
Des Smith: A former
senior adviser to government's city academy programme. Arrested on Thursday and
helping police with inquiries after telling an undercover reporter donors could
obtain peerages and honours by giving money to the controversial schools scheme.
Lord Levy: The Prime Minister's chief fundraiser and president of the
academy schools trust to which Des Smith was an adviser. Determined not to be
the "fall guy" for the row, he has insisted he was against the secret loans from
the start but relented after Tony Blair warned the Labour Party would face bankruptcy
Ruth Turner: The head of government relations, who also
operates out of Downing Street, Ms Turner could be questioned over which private
firms the Prime Minister met and whether there were any links to honours or government
contracts being handed out.
Baroness Morgan: Sally Morgan, a former
Cabinet Office minister, used to be director of political and government relations.
She, too, would hold details of meetings with private firms.
Tony Blair's taxpayer-funded chief of staff, he mixed with wealthy VIPs courted
by Lord Levy at lavish receptions in his London home.
The former general secretary of the Labour Party is believed to have hatched the
secret loans plan with Mr Blair and Lord Levy to stave off a cash crisis ahead
of the last election.
Ian McCartney: The Labour Party chairman is expected
to be interviewed by police. He signed the papers nominating three of the lenders
for peerages while he was in hospital recovering from a triple heart bypass operation.
He has insisted "every penny" of the loans was spent on getting Labour MPs re-elected.
David Miliband: Billed as PM-in-waiting, implicated by Des Smith, but
claims he only met the headmaster in his capacity as a minister.
Patel: The founder of the Priory, the detox clinic to the stars, Mr Patel
revealed last month that he had made a £1.5 million loan to the Labour Party weeks
before being nominated for a peerage.
David Garrard: The property tycoon
confirmed that he, too, had loaned money before being nominated.
Another lender to the Labour Party, Mr Aldridge resigned from his top job at Capita,
a company which has more than £1 billion of government contracts.
Yard has indicated it could widen its inquiry to investigate potential cash-for-contracts
allegations. Lord Adonis: The junior education minister and former Downing Street
adviser is expected to be questioned by police. He has previously insisted that
"we have nothing to hide"."
on country's ruin:
Mr. John Howard. M.P., Parliament House, Canberra.
Dear Mr. Howard,
Today I read the following
words and reflected on how your greatness has been built on my country's ruin.
Is there some chosen curse. Some hidden thunder in the stores of heaven,
Red with uncommon wrath, to blast the man who owes his greatness to his country's
ruin? - Joseph Addison.
Next Tuesday I will march to commemorate the memory
of personal comrades who gave their lives that you might perpetuate the ruin of
the nation they died to defend.
Yours in the service of He who said, "I am
the way the truth and the life."
Edward Rock, Cape Patterson, Vic.
The Editor, The Advertiser, 19/4/06.
The Business Council of SA and others who frequently advocate huge immigration
to SA over the next few years, need to reflect on the impact such a scheme would
have. In the real world of SA, we have a shortage of doctors, the public hospital
waiting list is a disgrace, the electricity supply cannot cope and we lack a supply
of decent water. People understand that any boost in population will exacerbate
these factors and hence they are opposed to it.
If those advocating such a
population increase cannot appreciate public feeling, we will need a referendum
to show them.
Yours sincerely, (Mrs) Jennifer Grundy, Naracoorte, S.A.
A horrid disease has been sweeping over the Western
world. It is known as PC (which stands for Political Correctness, or perhaps,
Pure Craziness). It means that we dare not offend any minority group for any reason.
Thus some local councils have refused to serve ham sandwiches for fear of
offending Muslims. Some have pulled Christmas carols during Christmas for fear
of offending non-Christians.
Of course during all this time one minority group
is being offended and vilified every day. It is open season on Christianity, and
the media and our cultural elites are more than happy to engage in Christian bashing
on a regular basis.
But back to PC. A recent example of the madness
of PC appeared in the Sunday papers, 16 April 2006. This one really takes the
