In light of the Islamist extremist lot that bothers society so much our government, through cabinet minister Eric Pickles, wrote to all the Imams and Mosques asking (telling?) them to stand up against the extremists. What the letter actually said I did not bother to read but the Imams and Muslim leaders were not very happy. In their eyes they were being blamed for extremist action and this they did not like. Now we know some mosques have indeed seen speakers who ought not to have been allowed but the tactlessness of the letter shows a lack of understanding of the Muslims among us.
The PM has of course stood up and supported Pickles letter (after all he probably thought of it) and finds it difficult to accept the objections. Could this be he does not understand where most Muslims are coming from? Could it be that Teresa May, the Home secretary, announcing to a Jewish meeting that this country needs Jews to remain here and not run off to Israel, has a part? A cynic, and I am no cynic as you know, might read all this as a 'telling off for the Muslims' to get the Jewish vote, and the Jewish vote in North west London is huge! Tsk! Imagine the PM playing politics with Muslims who mostly vote Labour. Who would have thought?
So loud announcement from British Gas that they will reduce their prices by 5 percent. Brilliant!
Of course this will happen at the end of February when the cold weather ends. Brilliant piece of theatre from the lying money grabbing crooks that they are. I particularly liked the stone faced spokeswoman who when asked why not reduce prices straight away like EON did last week she immediately talked about the overall average reduction and ignored the question.
We must nationalise these energy companies, no matter what! We are being ripped off, the energy world is a mess and the public suffer. There is no other way than nationalisation, but this will never happen!
Unless something goes wrong!
