25-12-2011 01:16As the world awaits the celebration of the birth of the Christ child -- and as, on the eve of this celebration, municipalities around the United States clear out Occupy encampments, pepper-spray peaceful protesters, and threaten them with felony convictions and two-year jail sentences -- it is worth remembering what the historical Jesus actually told people to do: he told them precisely to behave like Occupy protesters.

A youth charity in Hackney has launched a campaign to establish the number of homeless young people living on sofas and under the radar of the authorities as the closure of supported housing schemes compounds the problem.
The initiative was kicked off on Wednesday with the premiere of short film Sofa-surfer that tells the story of a young girl who has spent years living precariously unable to return home.
A housing expert warned the problem will only get worse when under 35s will be unable to claim housing allowance for a one-bdroomed flat from April.

23-12-2011 20:17Harrogate’s Van Zellers restaurant has been the focal point of a growing campaign surrounding their controversial use of foie gras on the menu.

English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was attacked in Luton. Photos have emerged of his face after the beating, showing his face covered in cuts, lumps and bruises. However, there is some doubt over who the perpetrators of the attack were.
The Gates of Vienna blog carries a report that blames “Pakistani youths;
He was out driving, when he saw a car similar to his wife’s, driven by a blond white girl. The other car flashed its lights so Tommy pulled over.
A group of Pakistani youths wearing knuckle dusters poured out. Tommy was knocked out pretty quickly, and they gave him a good kicking.
He looks pretty beaten up, but no bones were broken, and no eyes or teeth are missing. He had a brain scan this morning. We don’t know the results yet.
He has spoken to The Sun, who asked whether he had called the police. Tommy said there was no point, as a racial attack on a white guy was of no interest to them.
Tommy has apparently since then reported that the gang were shouting “Allah Akhbar” and “Merry Christmas Tommy.” The blog states that they “want Tommy to go to the police,” because if they don’t act upon this, it is “yet more evidence that there is a two-tier system of justice in England.”
This story has been reported faithfully by the EDL’s new political bed-warmers, the British Freedom Party. They add that “our thoughts are with Tommy and his family during this tough time, a time which should be happy but has been devastated by thuggish invaders who would like to see Christmas eradicated from Britain.”
However, rival fascist faction the North West Infidels think differently;
A 'senior' Green on Norfolk County Council has turned out to be a Zac Goldsmith in disguise. Elected for Green Party, Philip Hardy now runs off to the Tories cos he likes their "modernisation" of the NHS etc. (£Kerching£ more like shurely)
