Britannia - God Bless Her

Gordon Brown has once again shown his real colours by approving the removal of Britannia from the 50 pence coin. Britannia is the symbol which many people believe is based upon a Roman goddess but in fact the symbol has a heritage that goes much further back than that. The name Britan, or Bridget as the name is now known was an ancient goddess of nature and Annia was an ancient goddess of love or fertility. The symbol has featured on British coins for 300 years, and the redesign by Royal Mint will be the first time in hundreds of years that she has not featured on any British coinage. All British coins will be changed shortly, with traditional images replaced by things representing "modern Britain" (I expect to see all sorts of images which are NOT British, NOT traditional and certainly NOT aimed towards celebrating any remaining vestiges of our fast dissappearing British Culture) . The traitor Brown has repeatedly claimed, since taking over from the war criminal Blair, that he is above all "patriotic". This is a lie which was exposed when it was discovered that he approved the removal of Britannia whilst he was still Chancellor. As well the image of Britannia, the crowned lion and chained portcullis found on some coins will disappear. From 1797 to 1970 she featured on the one penny coin before being moved to the fifty pence coin.Once again the traitor Brown, who sold us out with his signature on the shackles known as the EU Constitution without giving the British public any say, has shown just how "patriotic" he really is! If i wasnt already a member this is the sort of thing would drive me towards the BNP!

Fine "British" Citizens

This from the press:

Two British teenage girls have been sentenced to nine months in prison for trying to smuggle cocaine out of Ghana in laptop bags.
Yasemin Vatansever and Yatunde Diya, both 16, were sentenced by a court in the capital, Accra.
Because they have been in prison since first being arrested last July they have less than three months of the sentence to complete.
The girls, from London, were held on July 2 at Accra's airport after anti-drugs officers found 13lbs of cocaine in two laptop bags they were carrying as they boarded a flight to Britain.
A spokesman for the Ghana narcotics board said the girls will be released on April 18.
He added: "The girls get a second chance not to repeat what they did. The message is clear to everybody. Once you do it and get caught you will pay for it."
He said they will serve the remainder of their sentences at a juvenile detention centre in Accra.
Asked if the girls might be sent home to England to serve out their time, a British High Commission spokesman said such a move would not make sense.
"The crime was committed here, the trial was held here, and that's it," he said.
The head of the girls' legal team had previously said they planned to appeal against the conviction.

Well excuse me if i appear a little underwhelmed by the sentence. Nine months for 13 pounds of drugs and i think we are soft here! With fine English names such as these drug smugglers have i wonder if the British authorities will check on their return to see if the girls are imports to our country? - if so, will they be deported? This governing junta of ours always cease to amaze me and will no doubt do so on this occassion too.

It has been pointed out to me that if what they had was "pure" cocaine you could be looking at dealers here in the uk "cutting" it by a factor of 10 to 20 in this country. So their 13lbs becomes at least 130lbs. Now if you sell at on the street at between £40 and £50 per gram you see that you are looking at half a million if it could not be cut or several million if it could.
