    Good Legal Immigrants Always Welcome – Again! 

    Only yesterday we gave an example of how HONEST immigrants are a boon to any country.

    In contrast to sleazy queue-jumpers, like those the Media-Democrats fawn on…



    …many admirable people fill in the forms and take their turn, and then they and/or their children, make valuable contributions to the country they make their own.


    Fellow Conservative,

    Young said it best — she’s exactly who Democrats don’t want in Congress.


    The Democrats have spent millions to keep her out of office and will spend millions more to do it again. It’s up to us to stop them…

    Life-Long Learning! So ‘Coach’ Is A Shop, NOT A Pub? 

    As mentioned now and then, one of my favourite pastimes is reading.

    My constant to-ing and fro-ing around Jakarta, on the buses, meeting up with people I like to talk to, means I read a lot of books, two paperbacks per week, at least.

    Some of the stuff I read is gripping fiction, like Gerald Seymour’s ‘Traitor’s Kiss,’ a spy story set mostly in Kaliningrad, the Russian enclave on the Baltic…

    …which used to be East Prussia, whose capital, Königsberg, was one of the jewels of the imperial Hohenzollern dynasty.

    Seymour does thorough research and I learned a lot about the place that I never knew before. It’s pleasing to savour a ripping yarn and find out fresh facts whilst doing so.

    Some of my other reading is fairly undemanding, yet as long as there’s a coherent story-line, I persevere, because it can take four or more hours…



    …especially on a Friday arvo rush-hour, to get home on the TransJakarta Busway from the places I tend to hang out.

    A good, or even a mediocre book is invaluable in such circumstances.

    Even a novel I wade through slowly can help clear up questions I’ve often asked myself but never got round to answering.



    Like that cafe-bar at Bunderan H.I., which is visible from the busway route, a posh-looking sort of place, on the east side of the huge Grand Indonesia mall.

    Or so I imagined it was – a cafe-bar, that is!

    The sign certainly does nothing to disabuse passers-by of that assumption, suggesting as it does a haven for merry travellers seeking a hostelry!

    Yet thanks to a crime story I read last month, I learned that ‘Coach’ is a shop!

    It sells women’s bags and things like that.


    So now I know.

    Funny name for a shop, I say, or you may say why did I imagine it was a cafe-bar?

    Well, bars these days often have funny-peculiar names, not traditional ones like the Rover’s Return, or the Miller’s Arms.

    Nor useful ones, like ‘The Doctor’s’ – named precisely so regulars could ring their wives and lie as to their whereabouts!

    There’s one in Jakarta called ‘Immigrant.’ Despite its name, I’m told it’s a respectable watering-hole.

    And there’s another called ‘Face Bar.’ Weird name, but a perfectly acceptable place – I was in there one time this year.

    However, bar or shop, I won’t be darkening Coach’s doors.

    Word is, it’s VERY expensive.

    PS – Regarding Jakarta bars and their names, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention PUBLIK HOUSE , at Belora, just south of the Tosari Busway stop, which I haven’t ever entered but regularly admire from my buses.

    Such simplicity in choice of name is admirable, and not only do they have all-you-can-drink wine on Saturdays, 6pm till 10pm, for under Rp.300K – tel 021 3153527 to check this is still going on…



    ….-but it’s also handy for the Puspita, an old traditional dangdut place, just round the corner!

    Tough Theresa May? If She Fails This Test, Fire Her! 

    CHILD rapist . . . Shakil Chowdhury is now out of prison and has British citizenship.


    This filthy brute raped a 12-year-old child, got a derisory sentence from a jerk judge, and has not been deprived of the British citizenship he had been inexplicably awarded.  

    The Home Office has the authority to deprive him of this in the interests of the public.

    It happened in Oldham, Lancashire. 

    Samantha Roberts, now 20, was horrified when her rapist, Shakil Chowdhury, was sentenced to only six years in October 2007. Chowdhury, 39 at the time, served only three years before his release on licence.


    Yesterday Cameron was wringing his hands about ISIS beasts who rape children, but today Samantha and her lawyer are still waiting to hear if Cameron’s Home Secretary, Theresa May, is going to do her duty.


    TheresaMay_1685363c Theresa May likes to make out she’s tough – we’ll soon find out!


    The lawyer says  – “They have the authority to remove a convicted child rapist from our country and this to me is a no-brainer. This man is dangerous and should not be allowed to stay.”

    Actually, he should be put down, but…

    Ms. May fancies her chances as a ‘rightwing’ successor to Cameron. I’ve always doubted her posturing. Here’s an opportunity to show us what she’s really made of.

      Truer words it is hard to find. Well said, Mr. Ross.
      Capital punishment must come back for this kind of monster and the terrorists, too.
      Until that happens,the politicians have to get them out of our country.
