And that’s why we hate the French

August 12, 2009

A great parody by Rowan Atkinson from the 1980s explains why the British ( and how everyone else should ) hate the French- and here’s another reason why………….what if someone was suffering from a pigment disorder and couldn’t have any sun on their skin at all? The French wouldn’t allow them to swim? or if someone was scarred from head to toe in burns? Their embarassment wouldn’t count for anything?

A Muslim woman who tried to go swimming in a head-to-toe “burquini” has been banned from her local pool in the latest tussle between religious practices and secular authority in France.
Officials on Wednesday insisted they banned the woman’s use of the Islam-friendly swimsuit because of France’s unusually strict hygiene standards in pools – not because of official hostility to wearing overtly Muslim garb.
Under the policy, swimmers are prevented from wearing any street-compatible or baggy clothing, such as Bermuda shorts, in favour of figure-hugging suits.
The woman, a 35-year-old convert to Islam identified only as Carole, complained of religious discrimination after trying to go swimming in her burquini in the Paris suburb of Emerainville.
She was quoted as telling the daily Le Parisien newspaper that she had bought the burquini after deciding “it would allow me the pleasure of bathing without showing too much of myself, as Islam recommends.”

“For me this is nothing but segregation,” she added.

Hey Mambo…..Silvio, you old Lothario you…..

July 24, 2009

A very, very frightening thought, image, possibility has arisen…..More tapes about Silvio Berlusconi’s sleaze scandal have been released – this time apparently of the Italian leader after having sex.

I don’t even want to imagine how horrible that could be.

Sky News reports :  ”The recordings were made by high-class escort girl Patrizia D’Addario, 42, who insists she spent a night at the 72-year-old’s home. In an explicit conversation, the woman is heard praising a man, said to be the prime minister, for his “performance”.He replies she should have “sex with yourself more often”.Political insiders said the graphic nature of the recordings could prove fatal in Mr Berlusconi’s close relationship with the Vatican.”

Well yes, stating the bleeding obvious there, aren’t we…..

Silvio says she may have visited his home, but he can’t remember her ( were there so many? ) and in any case he would never have paid as this would have spoilt the conquest…….how very……”Italian”…..LOL

Oh, and guess what, the ‘girl’ in question was 42- you old rogue, you like the older women, don’t you? Well there’s hope for all of us…..I knew there was a reason I loved Italians.

Girl of Riyadh given political asylum in UK

July 20, 2009

I am reading Girls of Riyadh at the moment and so this story in the Independent about a Saudi princess who has been given political asylum in the UK.

” A Saudi Arabian princess who had an illegitimate child with a British man has secretly been granted asylum in this country after she claimed she would face the death penalty if she were forced to return home. The young woman, who has been granted anonymity by the courts, won her claim for refugee status after telling a judge that her adulterous affair made her liable to death by stoning.  ……… The woman, who comes from a very wealthy Saudi family, says she met her English boyfriend – who is not a Muslim – during a visit to London. They struck up a relationship

She became pregnant the following year and worried that her elderly husband – a member of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia – had become suspicious of her behaviour, she persuaded him to let her visit the UK again to give birth in secret. She feared for her life if she returned to Saudi Arabia.

She persuaded the court that if she returned to the Gulf state she and her child would be subject to capital punishment under Sharia law – specifically flogging and stoning to death. She was also worried about the possibility of an honour killing. Since she fled Saudi Arabia, her family and her husband’s family have broken off contact with her.”

This will not make the headlines……………wonder why?

Indian State Demands Virgins………..

July 15, 2009

Naughty girls don’t get the state’s blessing in India these days as the state sponsored wedding officials are demanding virginity tests ( now sorry , but let’s not even go in to how ridiculous that is in this day and age of bicycles and tampax….) and pregnancy tests.

A row has broken out in the central state of Madhya Pradesh after some 151 girls were ordered to take the tests. The results showed 15 girls were pregnant. These brides were then excluded from a mass ceremony in Shahdol. Well, better than 151 pregnant…..

Kudos to Chief  Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan  for his attempt at a sound bite the UK Labour would be proud of, as he said they had not carried out “virginity tests” but the girls had simply undergone “procedural medical examinations”. Mmm, yes, open wide, but not too wide.

Just a thought, but were 151 virginity (or STD tests) carried out on the grooms?
