A lesson from the Aussies?

I was sent this by email today and thought I'd share it with you all.
Political correctness has gone nuts in the last decade and it's about time someone put a stop to it.

This story could also be adapted to local politicians who think they know better than the locals. You know the ones I am talking about. (Especially those who need to use our taxes to pay for their translation services at meetings)

This is what I was sent:

Britain needs a leader like this!

Prime Minister John Howard - Australia Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.

Quote:'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.' 'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom' 'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society - Learn the language!

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.' 'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why.

All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.' 'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.' Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, British citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

Read in between the lines and act intelligently at the up and coming election.
If they ain't from here then don't vote for them - Simple!

Welsh Football

In a week that could see Wales win the Grand Slam we see a Welsh football side making it to the Semi Finals of the FA Cup.
Cardiff City may well make it to the final they previously won back in 1926 when they beat Arsenal.
Cardiff it seems is a law into themselves as they choose to play in the English League and totally snub the Welsh Premier and Welsh FA Cup.
Even if Cardiff win the English FA Cup, they will not be entered in the European competition as Cup winners because the English FA cannot endorse them as they are a Welsh Team and the Welsh FA cannot endorse them as they have not won a Welsh Cup???

What a scenario!

Both Colwyn Bay and Caernarfon Town FC were exiled from playing at home for years because they refused to join the Welsh Premier League. After years of wrangling and loss in revenue as well as court costs, Caernarfon Town FC backed down and joined the Welsh League. By then the team was depleted and cash was hard to come by.

Caernarfon was a team who reached the 3rd Round of the FA cup all those years ago, were down and out following their exile and they have NEVER fully recovered.

The weekend epitomised all this when a lowly 79 turned out to support the Canaries. (and who says they were ALL home fans?)
Another bad season has resulted in low gates and lack of support from a local Town Councillor only served to rub salt in the wound.

We all know how bad the standard of Welsh football is and playing in this 'third rate league' has resulted in Caernarfon Town reaching their lowest ever state.
Cardiff City’s success in the English FA only proves that Caernarfon should have stuck to their guns and fought this ridiculous rule.
A rule that forbid them to play on their own pitch, just because some bureaucrat told them they had to take a backward step and join a lesser league.

The question is why do Wrexham, Swansea and Cardiff get away with it? While the Canaries have to suffer gates of only 79 supporters?

Al l I can say is that I hope Cardiff win the English FA Cup!
Now that would be in ‘your face to the Welsh FA’ wouldn’t it?

Best of luck to The Welsh National Rugby side on Saturday!

Copying is the the greatest form of flattery!

I had a smile across my face this week when someone pointed out to me that a local website was obviously concerned that we were leading the way with our site and news service.

The blogger dared to complain that there were nothing but 'blogs' on websites these days and from people whom he did not rate.

He then went on to say that he was therefore introducing another blog on his website???
(that makes sense)
What he obviously knows is the popularity of our websites and blogs. I know this because our stats programme is able to name servers which visits our websites and there are quite a few hits from his.
Our Blogs are very popular across the board and written by two extremely knowledgeable pillars of the community (and me of course LOL).

We are obviously ruffling a few feathers here and copying doesn't make anyone better, it just shows they are lacking ideas themselves.

This town is big enuff for everyone and I wish them all the luck in their new venture.

Beam me up Scotty!

By the way!
Perhaps you have thought about writing a bolg yourself and want a stage to get it seen?

If this is the case then contact us here at Caernarfon Online (usual address) and we will set one up for you. You will be guaranteed thousands of hits every week.
We look forward to hearing from you.
