    Department For Work And Pensions? ‘An Immoral Gathering?’ 

    I have noticed recently the initials DWP in ads and articles around Jakarta and, having lived in the UK many years ago, and been back quite often,  I wondered why..

    …of all British Government ministries, the Department for Work and Pensions might be making an impact here in Indonesia’s capital.


    Whilst I have no time for the Jakarta Post…

    Prabowo Faces Jakarta Post Quadrennial Gibbering! 

    …on this occasion we have to thank them for explaining that the –

    Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP) has been lauded as an international electronic music festival that has benefitted Jakarta tourism…



    But the JP went on to tell us that ‘not everyone is a fan of the annual event.’

    Yeah, me, for a start.

    Deafening, raucous reggae etc is not my scene, man.

    More fun getting together with those of my own generation…


    ..to enjoy the Stones, or Waylon Jennings, or Merle Haggard..

    …or even the late great Buddy Holly!

    But I’m not the only one disinclined to join the DWP!

    A gaggle of fanatics calling itself the Islamic Youth Movement (GPI) gathered in front of City Hall in Central Jakarta on Tuesday to protest…



    The group describes the DWP as Asia’s largest immoral gathering, which encourages casual sex, as well as the consumption of drugs and alcohol. https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2019/12/13/muslim-groups-slam-anies-for-allowing-immoral-dwp-to-go-on.html

    Hmmm…could well boost ticket-sales!

    However, Jakarta Police say no such abominable activities will be countenanced.

    But more interesting than the bleating of uptight Islamist adolescents is the fact that their protest is not only against the DWP but against Anies’ decision to allow the event to take place…

    And who is Anies, my overseas readers may ask?

    None other than Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan!

    Remember him!

    He vigorously wooed Islamist fanatics during his electioneering…

        • =

          View image on Twitter

        • Anies wins an adoring smile from ferocious fanatic Habib Rizieq, who had recently suggested the Christian Governor Ahok (Anies’ predecessor)  be slain for unacceptably quoting some Koranic verse –.“We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq. 
        •  http://www.suara.com/news/2016/10/14/134313/ 

          Anies used to purport to be a moderate. Then he decided he wanted to be governor.

        • But hey, now GPI head Irwan AHN is imploring his ‘beloved governor’ to think again, and the same gangs that staged grossly offensive sectarian demos.…

          The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

        • ….that led to Ahok’s prosecution, and conviction, and imprisonment, for the mediaeval ‘crime’ of ‘blasphemy,’ are reportedly turning up at the DWP venue to holler their hate.

        • Interesting situation for Anies, yeah? After all, if he wants a second term as governor, who’s he got to please?

      Heehaw, Ross.

      My lunchtime now, so I can comment on this.
      Same like you, I like sweeter music, Ross.
      Not DWP for me.
      Always these fanatic make their demo on work day, when they do not like to work but we must and so we must face traffic troubles. They are selfish.
      You know they also want more blasphemy trials, yes?
      If we live long enough, we will be living in Irandonesia, my friend sometimes say to me.
      Have Merry Christmas and write more about our country, please.


    • Euis 10:14 on December 14, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      A long time I do not read anything about Indonesia here. It is nice for us when you write like this.
      I am out of practise with my english!
      Very strange to think DWP in UK has so different meaning!
      I had a plan to visit my friend in Kemayoran but with music fans and fanatics there it will be bad traffic so maybe I go somewhere different.
      The music is not what I like but it is up to people to go if they want. It is not the fanatics business. Nobody want to make them go listen.


    • Jim Ex Jakarta 18:08 on December 14, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      I agree with you, Ross, the idea of ear-drum damage via that kind of music scares me.
      The extremists don’t like it either but instead of staying home or going to a nice bar instead, like we would, they are out there trying to get it banned.
      They need to grow up.
      Yes, Selvi, they are selfish, these fanatics. I read that there was another demo yesterday.
      I’m sending Ross a link in case he wants to write about it.
      It would be so easy to have their demos on Sunday when traffic is light but they like making life miserable for nice people like you Selvi who earn an honest living..

      I only now see this and enjoy reading it.
      I do not like to go to noisy places but to ban the concert is just stupid.
      Please write more about Indonesia. The fanatics are saying there must be action against Sukmawati too.
      The fanatics want to shame Indonesia again with an insane blasphemy trial, as if God cannot defend Himself.
      So embarrassing to have persecuters like them in our country.

        I will have something to say about the Sukmawati case, Kezia.
        Tune in tomorrow!

    ‘Asylum’ Lunacy – Brits Can’t Trust The System! 

    Here’s a dirty alien crim named Karamo Drammeh, 37 years of age, living in a ‘plush flat’ in Newcastle, from which he has been serving the community by running a small cannabis dealing business!’


    Karamo Drammeh, jailed for dealing cannabis


    Unlike the scum in Calais wishing to join him in England’s green and pleasant land, Drammeh has not been engaged in multiple acts of police assault, nor, unlike in Calais’s Jungle, do women in his neighbourhood have to huddle together at night for fear of rape.

    Even Guardian Can’t Miss Calais Crimmigrant Rape Menace! 

    But nevertheless, he’s clearly a bit of a one-man blight on society.

    Now, local media report, Drammeh has pled guilty and awaits sentence for his anti-social activity. His own defence lawyer said in court that, as an ‘asylum-seeker,’ he came to this country 14 years ago and eight years ago was his final appeal and he has been in a state of limbo.


    • illegals-45735984408
    • =======================
    • Hardly a state of ‘limbo!’ His status is clear. He’s just another undesirable alien, a filthy illegal immigrant.

    The state he SHOULD be in is Gambia, not limbo!

    That’s where he came from, lying about some need for sanctuary,  and that’s where he should have been sent back to, at least EIGHT years ago, when even the dim-wit immigration tribunals, who are likely neither more nor less diligent than their Aussie counterparts…

    ‘A Soft Touch!’ Truth Will Out on Asylum Parasites! Oz Officials ‘Know You’re Lying’ but ‘You’ll Be Fine!’ 

    …saw through his lies.  

    Okay, apologists for the authorities may say, the swine should have been loaded aboard whatever means of transportation was then available and despatched to his particular part of the Dark Continent – but maybe he just sloped off into the back-streets and disappeared.

    The magistrate last week in Newcastle was baffled.

    “Why you have not been deported, I don’t know. You have simply remained here.”


    • David-Cameron-clown
    • ===================
    • Easy answer to that question  – Cameron’s pathetic predecessors, like Cameron, didn’t keep crimmigrant ‘asylumers’ in detention, just expected them to show Britain the courtesy of turning up at the loading bay on despatch day.
    • That’s how Drammeh was able to avoid deportation!
    • =—————————————
    • prisoners
    • —————————————–
    • The scum should be shackled and penned the instant their final hearing is over.

    That’s why the UK is currently infested with with illegal vermin. Cameron cowers from introducing the emergency legislation needed to repudiate the ‘human rights’ hogwash and the European Court’s jurisdiction on such matters.


    • Empty Threats, But Cameron Will Cower From Crim-Loving Court
    • ————————————————–
    • But here’s the rub, way down in the media report. 

    Drammeh had a previous conviction for an almost identical offence..  http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/failed-asylum-seeker-newcastle-ran-9908028

    Now either the scumbag was convicted while his case for ‘asylum’ was pending, in which case ‘asylum’ should have been immediately denied on the grounds that, as a law-breaking dope-dealer, he is ipso facto unacceptable as an addition to the UK population.

    Or it was AFTER his appeals for ‘asylum’ were dealt with, in which case he was in custody and thus availalbe for immediate deportation.


    Why wasn’t he sent back to Gambia then? Why isn’t he being sent back right now, rather than incur the cost of keeping him for a year or more?

    Okay, calm down, irate citizens, we’ll now be told, all’s well that ends well.


    • Cue for pantomime audience – 

      Oh No It’s Not!’

    He speaks of having no-one in Gambia and has a partner of seven years and wants to stay here.”

    Who gives a sh&t what Scummy wants?


    • judgingjudges_header
    • ===============
    • Think on, my brave Brits, and recall that your gutless garbage judges, kow-towing to the Strasbourg Clown Court, have REFUSED to expel the vilest of the vile, no matter how heinous their crimes, if they can find some ‘family’ argument to keep curs  in the Sceptred Isle. 


    Britannia Dolorosa – Sceptred Isle Now Garbage Dump – Thanks to ‘Human Rights Act’ 



     Chindamo – Garbage


    Learco Chindamo was, is, not only a brutal murderer but a liar as well, who for years claimed that he was the victim of mistaken identity, but later said, ”I did a terrible thing when I killed Mr Lawrence…”

    He was jailed indefinitely but some gutless clowns on a parole board let him out in 2010. That piece of garbage is walking London’s streets even as I type this.

    But it is hardly only Chindamo we have to think about.


     Ibrahim  – Garbage


    The BBC reminded us of another piece of garbage – ‘ Iraqi Kurd, Aso Mohammed Ibrahim, who killed 12-year-old Amy Houston in a hit-and-run in Blackburn in 2003.

    He was jailed but allowed to remain in the UK after he and his wife had two children following his release from prison. Ibrahim’s lawyers successfully used Article 8 to argue for his right to stay and judges at the Court of Appeal refused an application to appeal against that decision….

    Cameron To Fight for Scumbags’ Right to Stay in UK! 


    So if even cowardly murder of a respected headmaster was not deemed adequate grounds to outweigh this moronic Euro-Court’s fatwa…?

    My bet?

    Drammeh will serve a meagre part of his 18 months, then go back to his plush flat, and be dealing drugs delightedly again by the time Cameron demits ministerial office in a few years time.

    And Cast-Iron will get his knighthood, and nobody will protest, despite his irresponsible, appalling Europhiliac betrayal of his people.

    OMG! Vitalia Lagi? 

    One of our most delightful posts last year concerned that man-about-town Ahmad Fatanah, a gadabout Islamist apparatchik whose gadding about is now restricted to a somewhat confined area

    Fatanah, a prominent cadre of the extremist PKS party, was famously quoted as modestly brushing aside the gratitude of a very hot model with almost unforgettable words.

    Vitalia told the media how he showered her with gifts, and when she expressed mild curiosity at this, Fathanah responded with a piety we should all acclaim….he answered that Allah had given me all the things and money through him… http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2013/09/17/fathanah-showered-his-women-with-jewelry-cars-and-cash.html

    Islamist to Sexy Model: ‘Don’t Thank Me, Thank Allah!” 

    vitalia yummy


    Yes, it’s the yummy Vitalia again, but alas, the news last night revealed she has been ARRESTED!

    It seems the cops raided a party at a fairly posh hotel in Ancol, on Jakarta’s northern shore, and collected a lot of drugs. They also collected a number of people including V.

    I hope she manages to prove her innocence, because to have such a gorgeous being out of circulation, even briefly, is..well, it’s sad, isn’t it?

    And I must admit I felt sorry too for Ahmad, whose pursuit of fun made him seem a much more appealing figure than the PKS’s present leader, Anis Matta.

    That’s the guy who wrote that nauseating ode to his personal pin-up – here’s a not very sexy picture of Anis’s object of adoration.




    Good luck, Vitalia, in your current troubles. I’m sure justice will be done!

    And if you appreciate my sympathy, I can only say, please feel free to thank me!

    Jakarta Globe Gives Rant-Space to Anti-Ahok Activist! 

    I do believe those in control of the Jakarta Globe’s endeavour to save the skins of the two drug-smugglers in Bali are losing it.

    After a nod to fair play by giving space to a couple of sensible Indonesians who argued against the JG’s anti-capital punishment campaign, they almost immediately felt the need to restore the imbalance of their content, recruiting a foreigner to churn out a long, verbose ‘rebuttal‘ of the pro-death penalty article.   http://thejakartaglobe.beritasatu.com/opinion/commentary-bloody-murderers-rebuttal-death-penalty-advocates-2/


    • aWelcometoBalicloseupa2
    • =====================
    • I won’t waste time repeating either side of the argument here. It strikes me that readers of both the JG and my blog must by now have heard enough of this debate.

    But it’s the individual they chose to author their latest propaganda piece that caught my attention.

    Patrick Tibke is innocuously introduced as merely  a Jakarta-based writer and a recent graduate of the Southeast Asian Studies program at SOAS, University of London whose interests include human rights, labor rights and drug policy. 

    But Jakarta people need to be reminded that it was Tibke who last year launched a venomous attack on their popular Governor Ahok!


    • ahok Ahok
    • =============
    • Why?

    The attack came after Ahok finally did what so many other local politicians lacked the guts to do – shut down the ghastly dive known as The Stadium. 

    Yet Master Tibke denounced Ahok as one of those who ‘lacks the guts‘ to deal with the drugs crisis.


    Best you read the whole post from June 2014  Stadium Tutup, Tapi Ahok Yang Takut? Kata Siapa? Seorang Asing!  but I’ll give you a taste of his animosity.

    The rant back then was inspired not by the closure of a single club, but by Ahok’s eagerness to fight the city-wide drug problem. Tibke was MOST upset by the Governor’s aggressive new pilot scheme designed to cleanse the capital of illicit narcotics. 

    The JG’s latest luminary certainly seems to sympathise with those who frequent clubs where narcotics are available. Ahok, in contrast, is contemptuously dismissed as just another case of a high-profile, urbanite politician desperately spouting tough-on-drugs hot air amid the run-up to an election. 

    Obviously a man not worth listening to, if you’re Patrick Tibke, who apparently prefers the babbling of those whom he incoherently described as  Jakarta’s empirically endowed club-goers. 

    Whereas Ahok, a most forthright and feisty fellow whom Indonesia is lucky to have, is only anti-drug to grub about for popularity? Rubbish! 

    Come off it, Patrick! Ahok’s anti-drug campaign commands wide support, certainly among ALL the many Indonesians, of ALL social classes and ALL religions whom I talk to.


    As a genuinely committed democrat, he’s voicing the people’s views!

    Needless to say, I don’t hang about dens like the Stadium.


    One visit many years ago to that place was enough to turn me off the Jakarta gilded brat ‘club’ circuit. As I noted last year, Tibke admits there are at least 600,000 druggies in town, and many of them get their drugs at nightclubs. 

    Everyone to their own tastes in hang-outs.

    I’m sure Tibke is a personally decent young chap, despite his occasional empirically endowed companions.

    But he’s supremely intolerant. 

    Sanctimonious and ideologically-driven pipe dreams, such as the eradication of all (currently illegal) narcotics, ought to be thrown out of the discourse on drug policy immediately… 

    Why on earth should one side of the debate, a side supported probably by most Jakartans, be ‘thrown out,’ simply because one foreigner dislikes hearing it? 

    rosa daning Dangdut bar, Pasar Rumput, Jakarta

    My tastes run to a few good cold beers in a dangdut bar, where nobody spouts Tibke-Talk, like his definition of what we need, viz. a paradigm shift in approach to drug policy, not merely the addition of another empty, punitive threat.

    So what the heck does that gobble-de-gook paradigm shift actually mean? 

    Legalise the lot, or much of it. 

    Politicians like Ahok would do better to acknowledge that the vast majority of drug use performed in a nightclub environment – even in Jakarta(!) – is not significantly harmful nor dependence-forming, is indulged in by informed adults, and is rationally motivated – primarily by pleasure. To vilify such environments and their patrons, en masse, by way of ‘hard-line’ platitudes purely for short-term political expediency, is both disingenuous and divisive to society at large.

    (Warning – Tibke puts that quote in special print as if it is some impartial reference source, but in fact it comes from the website of an outfit describing itself thus – a think tank that campaigns for the legal regulation of drugs both in the UK and internationally.)


    The last few paragraphs – from my dangdut reference downwards – are taken mostly verbatim from my post eight months ago.

    So the Jakarta Globe has no excuse for ignorance of the soft-on-drugs stance  – legal deregulation – invoked as ‘evidence’ by the man who’s joined their crusade on behalf of two criminals convicted of smuggling dangerous drugs.

    Will the editors now escalate their current campaign and call for legalisation of drugs rather than their eradication?

    Just asking!
