I have expressed the view before that the house of lords is an affront to the concept of democracy. Filled by over 700 appointed has beens and nonentities, often on the basis of their sycophancy or financial contribution to the ruling party, with no reference to the electorate, and totally out of touch.
A typical example is this idiot, Sayeeda Warsi.
Ms Warsi, in this article articulates the desperate reaction of the “faithful” to the gradual secularisation of Britain. She compares Britain’s majority of irreligious to “intolerant totalitarian regimes”, and accuses us of denying people their religious freedom. I suppose she means the freedom to ignore the laws on discrimination that the rest of us have to abide by. She ignores the fact that recent legal judgements against christians have been made by the courts, imposing laws made by politicians, like her. The secular, unlike the church, have no special representation in government, and are arguably very underrepresented.
But what makes her strident pronouncements all the more contemptible is the sycophantic fawning that she and others are about to show to that grand paedophile protector, the pope. She and a delegation of other arse lickers are travelling to the vatican to have an audience with the pope, described as “a great honour.” They will apparently be discussing human rights and international development. I don’t suppose they will be bringing up these cases though. (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6).
Now if you or I were to be involved with just a single episode of child sex abuse we would, quite rightly, find ourselves arrested, registered, struck off by the GMC and shunned. Our careers would be over. So why do those that represent us show any respect whatsoever to an organisation that shielded the biggest and longest lasting child abuse ring in modern history. Ms Warsi, you nauseate me.
