Dumbledore's chamber of secrets revealed
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has revealed that one of her characters, Hogwarts school headmaster Albus Dumbledore, is gay.
She made her revelation to a packed house in
She took audience questions and was asked if Dumbledore found "true love".
"Dumbledore is gay," she said, adding he was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, who he beat in a battle between good and bad wizards long ago.
Why did she have to go and ‘out’ Dumbledore? Why couldn’t sexuality be kept out of Harry Potter? Most of us are sick of homosexual propaganda. We couldn’t care less if someone we knew was gay but we don’t want their propaganda to be constantly forced fed to us.
I wonder if I can get 7 years for saying that? I wonder if the next story there will be a homophobic wizard getting dragged before a wizard court and sentenced to 7 years for homophobic remarks.
MPs to spend less time at Westminster
MPS are to get an extra week off at the end of this month - just weeks after coming back from their bumper three-month summer recess - because the government has run out of business.
Harriet Harman, the Commons leader, broke the good news to MPs yesterday, also outlining even more time away from
Matthew Elliott, chief executive of the Taxpayers' Alliance, said: "If MPs spent longer in the House there'd be less badly drafted legislation."
This is a good thing. If MPs spend less time in the House of Commons it will mean that they are drafting less legislation and staying out of our lives more. That has to be a good thing. It’s not like they will actually be on holiday because they will be in their constituencies addressing the issues that concern their constituents. How is that a bad thing?
The royal toilet
A council has been caught short of cash after spending £5,000 on a toilet for the Queen - which she didn't even use.
Officials were left staggered when they totted up the cost of Her Majesty's visit to their town and realised it had cost them an astonishing £20,000 an hour.
Royal officials told trip organisers Her Majesty would not use an old toilet and insisted a new one be installed in the town hall before her visit - in case she needed a "royal wee".
But the brand new toilet remained unused during the three hour walkabout in Romsey, Hants.
The extra expense of the toilet added to the council's troubles as the cost of the visit escalated out of control.
The trip, marking the 400th anniversary of
But councillors were too embarrassed to cancel when they found out weeks before the Queen was due to arrive that the true cost would be a staggering £38,000 more.
Rule changes meant the police were no longer responsible for security costs and the council also had to pay for barriers, cones and even evacuation plans to be drawn up.
I would have told the Queen’s officials that if she didn’t like it no one was forcing her to come. Just because the queen wants to be a snob does not mean that taxpayers should have to fork out money to cover the expense of a new toilet because the queen feels she is too good for ordinary toilets.

Criminal sentences in this country are totally out of proportion to the actual crimes that criminals are being punished for. Take this 41-year-old man who was cautioned after he walked into a motorbike dealership and threatened staff with a 3ft axe.
He should have been sent to prison for a couple of months or at the very least given community service. He sounds like a psycho and probably should have been held under the Mental Health Act.
Serious offenders are always given an easy time under this government. Rapists and dangerous thugs are going to get shorter prison terms even though they have already said that indeterminate sentences are a vital weapon in the fight against crime. Labour is either backtracking on this or they are putting the public in danger. Both reasons should mean that you won’t vote Labour again.
While they are going easy on serious offenders they are punishing people who don’t do anything wrong. A retired journalist was fined £75 for putting litter in a bin. If this man is an isolated case he won’t be for long. In
War on drugs surrenders to political correctness
Something is seriously wrong when you can’t investigate Vietnamese drug gangs because it could be classed as racist.
Vietnamese drugs barons control 75% of the cannabis production in this country so it would be common sense to put your resources into catching these people. Unfortunately in today’s world common sense doesn’t play a part.

Immigration places huge strain on public services
The truth is finally coming out. The government has admitted that immigration is placing a huge strain on our public services.
Crime is up, schools are struggling to cope with Eastern European children, community tensions are rising, health services are coming under enormous pressure and house prices are being driven up, the Government said. Immigration also costs every household £350 per year.
Rather than actually stopping immigration from Eastern Europe where most of the immigrants are coming from the government want to stop anymore coming from outside Europe and allow more and more Eastern Europeans into this country even though they are the ones who are the cause of the community tension and the cause of the strain on public services.
Olympic bosses taking bribes
The Olympics is getting more expensive every day. The bill for the aquatics centre is set to double to £150 million while the budget for the stadium will rise from £280million to £500 million.
While the costs increase the people in charge of the project do nothing to keep the costs under control. Why should they? Afterall they are receiving bribes from companies that they have rewarded contracts too. These senior executives have no incentive to give contracts to the cheapest. They will give it to anyone just so long as the bribe is high enough.
The information was found out using freedom of information laws but these executives were so determined to keep this information a secret that they only gave researchers 90 minutes to view hundreds documents, would not allow copies to be made and are now refusing to let anyone else see the names of the officials.
With such limited time to read hundreds of pages is it possible that it is worse than we thought? Could they have accepted more than these researchers were able to read?
Gordon Brown to tax fun
Gordon Brown became embroiled in a new tax row last night as secret plans to introduce a levy on pub quizzes were revealed.
Confidential orders to council tax snoopers, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, say 'friendly' pubs with quiz nights, football teams or dartboards will be forced to pay higher business rates, which will pay for Labour's public-spending programme.
The plan, which could lead to big tax rises for bars deemed 'popular', was last night condemned by the Tories, who claimed it could lead to landlords cancelling quizzes and other social events.
What a surprise. Gordon now wants to tax FUN. He won’t be happy until he can tax everything. Gordon Brown is scum.

1.4 million immigrants in 5 years
We are being overwhelmed by immigrants. In 5 years our immigrant population has swelled by almost 1.4 million, about 1 million of which are Polish. Half of these 1 million plan to stay in this country for a long period of time.
We already have a housing crisis and now it has been revealed that because of immigration we will need at least another 95,000 homes per year up until 2020. I bet this will be far higher but I will go by the figure given. Given this figure of 95,000 and given that I expect that they will bring their families over I expect that in the next 12 years there will be over 3 million immigrants in this country, however in some circumstances it has been reported that immigrants are living up to 10 a house which will mean that the number could be far higher.
Government silences diplomats

Doctors can't get a job
Every British medical graduate should be guaranteed a training place in hospital after thousands were squeezed out by overseas applicants this year, a damning inquiry into the junior doctors fiasco has said.
The report into the Government's botched handling of doctors' training found a series of blunders meant 33,000 junior medics were chasing just 22,000 training posts earlier this year.
Report author Professor Sir John Tooke said the problem occurred because ministers had failed to anticipate that more than 10,000 doctors would apply from overseas, thus 'flooding' the market.
Ministers have now promised to consider his recommendation that British medical graduates should be guaranteed their first year of training, with overseas doctors only able to apply later on.
I thought immigrants were only doing the jobs that British people don’t want to do? Surely this story busts this myth as being a bare faced lie?
This country has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds per doctor training them and now it has been shown to be a total waste of money as we are taking foreign doctors which are probably needed in their own country far more than they are here after all we do have an over supply while less developed countries need far more doctors than they have.
If we can’t get rid of the immigrant doctors maybe we can get rid of the Muslim medical students who refuse to learn about sexual diseases, alcohol or women.
The heartless reality of capitalism
If anything exposes the heartless reality of capitalism it is this story.
Employers are starting to replace migrant workers with other migrant workers once they stop working as hard as they normally do even though the older immigrants are more likely to have integrated. When immigrants settle in they begin to have more ties and are not able to work such long hours so employers replace them with people who are willing to work as slaves.
This is the new reality of globalised immigration. If you don’t work like a dog you can be replaced by someone who is willing to work like a dog from a totally different country who could be from the other side of the planet. Employers don’t care about you. They are just interested in the next pound that they can make.
Child poverty increases under Labour
Child poverty among working families has gone UP under Labour, shock new figures reveal.
Pm Gordon Brown is being urged to hike handouts in Tuesday's super-budget to get back to his target of halving child poverty by 2010.
All the handouts will do is prolong the poverty that families are in. the only way to make sure that they can get out of poverty is making sure that they have jobs that they can go to that don’t pay them a pittance for working all day which means they can’t see their children
The government should be lowering taxes so that people will actually want to work and not have the fruits of their labour stolen from them by a thieving government but because our government is constantly taxing the productive to give to the unproductive disposable income is at it’s lowest for 10 years.
If the economy is doing well British people are not benefiting from it. Like I have said the only way to get out of poverty is to work yourself out of it but half of all new jobs go to immigrants which means that immigrants now fill 1 in 14 jobs. How can people work when they can’t even get a job?
Labour is supposed to work for the working class but they don’t. They just work to keep themselves in the job while betraying the working class and keeping them in eternal poverty.
7 years for raping children or hating gays
What world is our government working in? They believe that if you talk negatively about homosexuals you should get 7 years in prison. The government should realise that we had a little thing called freedom of speech before these fascist came into power and we don’t want our freedom of speech to be destroyed any more just so that they can pander to minority interests.
A paedophile has just been jailed for 7 years for abusing a girl from the age of 5. He destroyed her life and she almost killed herself a number of times and yet the government is saying that telling people you hate gays is a crime equal to that of raping a little girl from the age of 5. What kind of perverted logic do our rulers operate under?
Is it the same perverted logic that stopped a paedophile victim from informing other parents that her rapist was living in their area after being released from prison after 7 years?
If the government believes that hating gays and raping young girls are crimes that are equal then they lack basic judgement and should not be trusted with the running of this country.
Is this true?
I have already been fooled once this week with this story about a parents’ group wanting to ban unhappy endings in stories.
Could this be another fake news story? I was a believer myself until I read “MoD chiefs hope to attract more Muslim women, prized due to their rare, natural cover”. Are they trying to joke about the burquas covering them up or something? I don’t believe this is a true news story.
The Samaritans isn't inclusive enough

But they could soon find themselves homeless because they cannot afford to refurbish new premises after being rejected by the lottery. At the same time, the Big Lottery Fund is to give £360,000 of public money to a project offering advice to prostitutes.
Why should diversity play a role in deciding lottery money? How do they know that the Samaritans don’t help ethnic minorities? At the end of a phone call trying to persuade someone not to commit suicide it wouldn’t exactly be a good idea to ask them to fill out a customer satisfaction survey would it.
I think that the Samaritans do help ethnic minorities and if they don’t they should still have received the money so they could help them. Maybe talking to the Samaritans would stop so many abused Asian women from committing suicide after-all young Asian women are 3 times more likely to be suicidal than white British women.
More than 21,000 girls under 15 in
Surely this shows that it is probable that the Samaritans do help ethnic minorities and by the Lottery criteria they should be given the grant.

SNP caught lying
ALEX Salmond was yesterday accused of backtracking on a key SNP pledge to recruit 1,000 new police officers.
The SNP fought the Scottish elections promising the extra officers but, in the parliament yesterday, Mr Salmond would only commit to "the equivalent of" 1,000 new officers - leading to opposition claims of a U-turn.
The First Minister also came under attack over the renewal of
The row over the SNP's plans for the police erupted because of a change in the party's stated policy. In April, the SNP manifesto promised "1,000 more police" but, by the time the SNP took power, that had changed to "the equivalent of 1,000 new police officers".
At First Minister's questions yesterday, both Annabel Goldie, the Scottish Tory leader, and Nicol Stephen, the Scottish Liberal Democrat leader, asked if the SNP would actually recruit 1,000 new officers or whether the Scottish Government would merely move officers from back-room duties to frontline operations, without recruiting the numbers promised.
Mr Stephen claimed the SNP's promise had become "rebadging, renaming or reshuffling existing police".
And he added: "They're not new or additional. Is this the biggest backtrack the First Minister has yet devised?"

Headteacher wants to charge children to eat packed lunches
A headteacher wants children charged for bringing in packed lunches, so instead they eat the school's healthy Jamie Oliver-style meals.
Primary school heateacher Margaret Bousfield believes the increases in packed lunches are a protest against the Government's introduction of healthy meals, promoted by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver.
Ms Bousfield, of
"It seems that nationally more and more children are taking packed lunches and there seems to be an outcry against Jamie Oliver.
"The Government should allow schools to charge young people to bring packed lunches into school.
"There are cost implications for allowing young people to eat packed lunches in schools and introducing a cost may enhance the take-up of what are very healthy school meals."
In a document to the council, she said: "I'm not saying that every child has an unhealthy packed lunch.
"Why not has legislation on it? If the Government can tell schools what to provide in terms of food served that children pay for, then why not packed lunches?"
Who does this bureaucrat bitch think she is? The Nazis would love her to run their schools. Why on earth should there be legislation covering packed lunches? The government already legislates too much as it is and packed lunches aren’t important enough for Parliament to legislate on.
Mrs Bousfield is a teacher and should stick to teaching and she should not have any say over what her pupils eat during dinner time.
They never lived happily ever after
Children's books that don't have happy endings should be banned, it was claimed yesterday.
Youngsters are already exposed to enough misery in their lives and should be protected from such stories, says a parents' group.
The Happy Ending Foundation is planning a series of Bad Book Bonfires for later this month, when parents will be encouraged to burn novels with negative endings.
The foundation has also written to school librarians across the country to coincide with Children's Book Week, which began on Monday, urging them to take ' controversial' books off shelves.
When are youngsters exposed to misery? They aren’t exposed to misery at all. Maybe bad grades mean that they are exposed to misery? Either way these idiots should be ignored and then ridiculed if they keep on with this idiotic campaign. Children are wrapped in cotton wool enough. Why would we want to do wrap them in more?
Having sad ending isn’t going to damage children for life. They should know that not every situation will turn out rosy. If parents don’t like it they can simply not buy the books to read to their child. Problem solved.
Asylum seekers stay for being too violent (2)
Hundreds of failed asylum seekers escape deportation every year by throwing tantrums at the airport.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith revealed that 2,079 have been spared removal as a result of their "disruptive behaviour" in the past two years.
In each case, thousands of pounds had been spent detaining the bogus refugees, holding them in removal centres and arranging flights.
However, once they arrived at the airport to board their flight home, they behaved so erratically that airlines refused to take them for safety reasons.
I blogged about this happening in May and since then nothing has been done about it. The only thing the government does is bribe them to leave. If they refuse to leave and become violent they should be sedated until the end of the flight. They shouldn’t have a choice in the matter especially if they become violent.

A major review of prisons in
The recommendations from Government trouble-shooter Lord Carter of Coles would also see high-risk offenders housed in new "federal" style jails, the Times newspaper said.
Lower-risk criminals would be contained in so-called community prisons, with many short-term inmates in open facilities offering treatment for addictions and other resettlement programmes, it added.
This ‘major review’ has already happened, infact I blogged about it in March. This one has a few minor changes. The government must have figured that lots of people didn’t like the first policy that they had to change it to make it more acceptable, hoping no one would figure out that they have already announced it.
Diversity training is useless
It’s official. Police diversity training is useless but atleast the experts have began to realise that. Dr John Coxhead, who worked for ten years as a liaison officer with gipsies and travellers thinks that forces should stop putting so much effort into training courses and return to "common sense," I couldn’t agree more but unfortunately the people in charge at the top don’t have common sense.
Showing their lack of common sense Devon and Cornwall Constabulary have decreed that their officers are no longer allowed to rescue drowning swimmers or even hold their hands out. They also must carry out a dynamic risk assessment before throwing a life belt.
PCSOs are also useless when faced with slightly determined criminals. They are not allowed to tackle violent yobs, respond to any serious incident and issue fines which makes them more useless than traffic wardens.
Government lies about Northern Rock

Savers were told that up to £100,000 in their accounts would be guaranteed but now they have decided not even half that will be guaranteed. Up to £35,000 will be guaranteed. The government has a lot to answer for. If they had no intention of guaranteeing it why did they lie? If they intended to guarantee up to £100,000 it shows the sheer incompetence of government.

Polish people just aren’t cheap enough for our government anymore and they aren’t pricing enough Brits out of the workplace which is why the government are trying to attract Indians to come to this country.

I don’t believe it because they said they would do the same thing last year. We do need to get a hold of immigration because they are putting financial pressure on councils.

Our troops have been fighting and dying in
The wars that we are in are costing us a lot of money which is why the government is selling off some of our embassies to pay for the security of our embassies in war zones. If they stopped paying billions on consultants they would probably have the money which they probably could spend on military bases which are run down and which soldiers shouldn’t have to live in. In one base in the war zones they never had a doctor for three weeks even though they were coming under constant attacks.
The government decided that they wanted to create Citizens juries which are going to be useless and are just a PR stunt. If Gordon Brown was really in favour of democracy then he would give us more referendums and he would stop penalising communities which don’t vote Labour. He also wouldn’t be trying to silence civil servants, film makers and blackmailing local councils.
