Life in the Soviet Rep. of Britain: New Labour's Cool Britannia.

English the 2nd language in primary schools...One in seven primary school pupils does not speak English as a first language.

The number who normally speak a foreign language rose last year to 565,888 - 14.3 per cent of the total.

In some areas, English is a foreign language to more than 70 per cent of four to 11-year-olds, putting enormous pressure on teaching staff. And there are ten schools without a single pupil who has English as a first language, new figures show.

Teachers say large concentrations of children with a poor grasp of English can lead to some schools being unfairly condemned by inspectors.

Parliamentary questions have revealed that in 2004, 452,388 primary school children spoke English as a second language. By last year this figure had increased by 113,500, a rise of almost exactly 25 per cent.
Even the primary school kids have the correct opinion of Mr Brown.

IMF tell the gay snot gobbling trouser pisser that he has not got a fucking clue, the daft Jock cunt...Gordon Brown’s economic credibility suffered another blow last night following a warning that Britain’s recession will be the worst in the world.

The International Monetary Fund said the downturn in the UK would be deeper than anyone previously feared - and it would last through 2010.

The IMF also said that Britain’s economy would shrink by a catastrophic 3.8 per cent this year and 0.2 per cent in 2010 - making it the only major economy still in recession next year.

Scumbag dickhead MP Jack Straw in data climbdown...Jack Straw last night bowed to public pressure by scrapping plans to share sensitive personal data across Whitehall departments. 

The controversial proposals would have allowed medical records and DNA to be shared with police, foreign governments and other bodies.

But the Justice Secretary ditched the plans following a storm of protest from politicians, doctors, lawyers and civil liberties campaigners, who warned it was the latest step towards a Big Brother society.

There were also major concerns about the Government's ability to safeguard information about individuals following a series of major data blunders.

In further U-turns, Mr Straw has also toned down plans to allow secret inquests to be held without juries in the interests of 'national security'.

He altered the proposals so that the final decision on holding an inquest in secret would be taken by a High Court judge rather than the Secretary of State.

He has also dropped controversial plans to give bailiffs the right to break into people's homes by force to seize property for debts.

In an embarrassing U-turn, justice minister Michael Wills told MPs yesterday that the controversial Clause 152 to fast track data-sharing had been dropped entirely from the Coroners and Justice Bill.

A spokesman for Mr Straw said he had been persuaded to rethink the plans following a massive public backlash.

Damage limitation come the election methinks.

Plans to halt savages in France, but French not informed of HM Govt spin....A joint Anglo-French detention centre is to be built outside Calais to deal with thousands of migrants trying to reach Britain, the immigration minister has claimed. 

In a surprise move, Phil Woolas revealed that he has held talks with his French counterparts over a secure camp.

He says he is trying to persuade them that it would be the solution to dealing with would-be asylum seekers trying to get into the UK.

Describing his plans for the centre, Mr Woolas emphasised that it would not be like the infamous Sangatte. He said the new facility would house migrants before they are sent home.

Britain is willing to help pay for and run the camp, Mr Woolas said, and to share the costs of flights with the French authorities to deport illegal immigrants back to their homes in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere before they can reach the UK.

However, Mr Woolas's unscheduled announcement took his Whitehall officials by surprise. The Home Office was unable to provide details of how the proposed detention centre would work.

But more embarrassingly for Mr Woolas, his claims even caused bemusement in Paris, where a spokesman for the French immigration ministry said he too had 'no information' about plans for the detention centre.

Could it be that there is no camp? That Phil is just creating yet more smoke and mirrors.

As the Russian bear rearms Neil Kinnock plans to run to the Welsh hills, sorry Gordon Brown announces he will run for the Welsh hills...Russia today shocked the West by ordering a 'large-scale' rearmament of its nuclear and conventional forces.

In an announcement that could trigger an arms race, President Dmitry Medvedev vowed to bolster attack and defence capability.

The move came as Gordon Brown offered to surrender part of Britain's nuclear deterrent in exchange for a global disarmament deal.

"I hold in my hand a piece of paper....peace in our time...It started in America....I saved the World..."

Maybe he plans to drone on for hours and bore the Russian missiles to sleep?

I don't believe that and I don't believe this

Lying cunt has form for bringing stuff like this through the back door, Statutory Instruments anyone ?


Mr Woolas emphasised that it would not be like the infamous Sangatte. How is it not exactly like Sangatte Woolas you cretin ?

In an announcement that could trigger an arms race, President Dmitry Medvedev vowed to bolster attack and defence capability. Not bothered, their army is small and rubbish, their navy is rusting away; probably part of Medvedevs ill-advised powerplay against Mr. Putin.

The scariest thing I read yesterday was this piece in the Guardian In Which the Fuck wit blathers: "It's essential that Labour wins the next election for the sake of the country," - That genuinely sent a shiver down my spine - so much so, that if New Labour win in 2010, I'm on the first plane out to Australia, as I couldn't cope with five more Years of him.

I hope it's rather more than that here in Wales!

Not a chance. The Welsh language is dieing on its feet.
