Donate or your child will be punished.

My nine year old brother in law arrived home from school with a letter from the head teacher. My gast was well and truly flabbered when I read it.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Playtime For Pakistan

As you will know from media coverage millions of children in Pakistan have lost their homes and have no food or clean drinking water due to recent flooding. On the afternoon of Thursday 2 September we are offering an extra playtime to encourage our pupils to bring a donation for this appeal. Thank you for your support.


Blah Blah
Head Teacher

I've had dealings with the school before about their dubious methods for raising cash for 'charity' but this is a new low. Using pester power and punishing those who will not or cannot donate is way out of order.

I wonder if the school has been set a target of how much to raise by the council?

Needless to say, their will be nothing donated from this household. And the school can fuck right off.

BBC 'news' report.

Private toll roads not the answer, screams the headline. A report by the Campaign For Better Transport says it's been a huge big waste of money.

The Campaign For Better Transport, what's that about then?

About us

We are the UK's leading authority on sustainable transport

We champion transport solutions that improve people's lives and reduce environmental damage. Our campaigns push innovative, practical policies at local and national levels.

Ah, treehugging loons. That explains why the BBC have ran with the 'story'.

Remind me we are forced to pay for this shite?

Councils start squabbling for business...

Further to my 'War on Motorists' post the other day, we have this.

Which I whole-heartedly applaud.

Look at what socialism has done to Scotland...

Before socialism....

After sixty+ years of socialism.

The war on motorists continues

Remember the grand announcement by the government during the first few days of taking office?

The "war on the motorist" will be ended by the coalition Government, Philip Hammond, the new Transport Secretary, has promised.

Good stuff, we all thought. But it looks like the message hasn't got through to the councils. To ensure that the council's chief executives tax payer funded Lexus is protected from the cuts, they have decided to use legislation granted to them during the previous Labour administration to impose a parking tax on people who have the cheek to actually have a job and, wait for it, drive to work!

The first council to start this madness is Nottingham, with a few others to follow suit.

I would love it if council employees were somehow exempt or, as will probably be the case, the tax payer will pay their share. It may tip a few people over the edge.

How much more will people take before the revolution starts? Why isn't there rioting on the streets of Nottingham?

Well done Maggie Thatcher!

Thatcher personally confronted Gorbachev and protested that the Soviet Union was meddling in British matters

Saturday Sixties

No blogging today, so have a top notch tune from before I was born.

Friday, August 27, 2010

ConDems are a bunch of bastards.

From Conservatives.com earlier today....

Ministers today called for Labour to apologise for all the community pubs that closed their doors thanks to the Labour Government’s policies.

Official figures show there was a net closure of 3,530 pubs across England under Labour from 1997 to 2010.

"Labour hiked taxes on pubs and did nothing to stop unfair loss-leading by supermarkets" said Grant Shapps, Minister for Local Government.

(italics are mine)

I would be interested to see the amount of pubs that closed down since the smoking ban came into force. An overturn of the smoking ban would do wonders for the pub trade, Mr Shapps. Or even legislation that we see in Spain. But no, it's the big bad supermarkets to blame.

Because 'loss leading' is a new thing, isn't it?

Action must be taken then...

From the Localism Bill, due to be introduced in November,

There will be a ban the sale of alcohol below cost price, helping protect local pubs from unfair ‘loss leading’ by some supermarkets.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Meanwhile, up here in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Controlling Bastards, we have this and this.

Next week, expect the announcement of a wanking tax.

Councils to kill puppies due to cuts.

If I was a cynical type of bastard, I would say that our local authorities and police forces/services are headline grabbing about the cuts that they, quite rightly, need to make.

This week, we've had this and this from the polis, with the fantastic quote from Les Gray of the Scottish Police Federation....

"The people will not be safe on the streets”

Yes, quite Les. Perhaps the polis can prioritise the cuts a touch better. Getting rid of desk jockeys and big shiny 4x4 'company' cars for the senior officers would be a decent start. To be fair to Les he has the interests of his membership at heart and I understand his position.

However, over to Glasgow City Council for the cuts headline of the day...

'Fruit off the menu as council battle cuts'

Seems to me that our services are playing silly buggers. As I mentioned in a previous post, just shut your mouths and do your jobs. Properly.


How to make a fortune playing the property game.

It's a piece of piss, this property lark. All you need is a small amount of cash and a lot of patience.

Right, here is the Rab step by step guide to making a fortune, all courtesy of the tax payer!

1) Purchase an old building in a town centre, or buy a failing business that is located in an old building. Make sure the building has some sort of 'historical interest'. Even better if a quango already has it listed.

2) Vacate building/close down business. Leave building derelict. Wait a few years minimum or two or three decades maximum. Resist all pressure from councils and community groups to tart up building by saying that the quango who has it listed as a building of 'historical interest' prevents you from investing in your property. Your hands are tied etc etc...

3) Watch as other property owners in the area do the same as you, with the result that the entire area turns into a ghost-town.

4) Patience, nearly there....

5) Rub hands as yet another quango is formed. Quango gets a shit load of cash from the tax payer to splash around.

6) Quango buys your building at way over the market price. You ride off into the sunset counting your cash.

7) The quango spends our cash doing up the old buildings to, umm, stand empty as they cannot get tenants to move into the properties.

8) Celebrate as one tenant has moved into a building. Oh wait, it's a 'social enterprise' company, (double speak for parasitical company leeching off tax payers cash).

9) Notice that the Chairperson driving all this is also in charge of the London Olympics Legacy Company which is responsible for ensuring the olympic's budget isn't spunked up the wall...

10) Wish best of luck to the Olympics. They'll need it.

The REAL Postman Pat

Not for kids!!

Have a perusal through them if you're not familiar with any of them. I have my favourites as well as one or two I don't particularly recommend but each to their own.

I can only say thank you to those of you who have taken the time and effort to vote for me this time round. It's been a difficult and eventful year for the Rab household and blogging had to take a back seat for a fair chunk of the year. Many a time I've been one click away from deleting the whole thing, but I've always chickened out.

I've tried not to be too sweary either but, to be honest, fuck it. Swearing is good for the soul.

Blogging is addictive, exciting, depressing, despairing and a way of life. Your family and friends will think you are nuts, but it has opened up a whole new world of knowledge for me. I also recommend twitter, if only to follow politicians and hurl abuse at them.

It's strangely satisfying.

Another great council investment!

A council meeting, yesterday.

Our local authorities have a huge responsibility. They look after everything from keeping the streets clean to ensuring every whim of the LGBT community is catered for. All paid for by us, the inhabitants of the real world.

So even I was surprised that part of a council's remit was to give tax payers cash to failing local businesses with, apparently, no questions asked.

I think I might uproot the RantinRab clan and head for a new life in Northumberland. It seems like a land of milk and honey with the streets paved with gold. It must be, the council can afford to give 'loans' to local enterprise.

Oops! Maybe not. The council has a deficit of £102.6 million. Well, a deficit of £102.85 million now.

On a brighter note, it's nice of Northumberland Foods to leave a note of thanks to the council on their website...

Don't let the door hit your arse on the way out!

And in typical leftie fashion Arthur and chums try to smear those who kicked them out,

"A number of us have been raising claims of financial irregularity in the union and I believe we are now being subjected to a witch-hunt because of this."

I don't care about the reasons for the expulsion, all I can say is....


Cat woman in even more trouble

The most hated woman in Britain, (funny old country, to be honest), is in even more bother this morning.

Mary Bates faces being 'investigated' by fake charity the RSPCA and has received hundreds of threats after footage of her dumping the cat in a wheelie bin flashed all over the world. However, she can sleep easy as West Midlands police have deployed two PCSO's on her doorstep. Providing any violence she receives is within permitted health and safety PCSO guidelines she is in safe hands.

However, in a last minute addition to her woes, a Coventry City Council spokesman announced this morning that as Mrs Bates had clearly breached the council's recycling policy she will now be prosecuted by the council.

The spokesman explained,

"As the accused is seen clearly using the wrong colour of wheelie bin for disposal of the cat we have no option but to send round a hi-viz wearing, nosey, jobsworth, overpaid, jumped up, tosser to ensure she is punished to the full extent of the law."

He went on,

"I hope this serves as a lesson to others that waste such as cats should be put in the brown bin."

A hypocritical bastard speaks...

.... Sheila Duffy, of anti-smoking group Ash Scotland, said "The tobacco industry has tried to divert attention away from the important health issues at stake by exaggerating fears based on unfounded claims.

That's a bit rich, is it not?

Dear Chief Cuntstable

"Shut it, you slaaaag."

Shut your face and do your job. Stop using scare tactics against the public. I'm sure if you looked really, really hard you could find savings which would leave 'front line' officers unaffected.

What is it with those who 'run' our public services that makes them think they can spout off to the media whenever they feel like it?

Take your medicine, you bunch of bastards. And get on with what you are handsomely paid for.

The glory days are over. Understand?


Miliband is a moron.

Read this utter shite.

Idiots, all of them.

We have a special kind of thug up here...

A GANGLAND friend of slain thug Kevin "Gerbil" Carrol l had his head drilled with a power tool in a drugs feud.

James Hanlon, 26, was rushed to hospital with blood pouring from his skull after being tortured by gangland hitmen.

John Prescott's sausage roll bill could bankrupt Labour.

"It was this big but I managed it in two bites. Snort!"

Oh dear, Labour is in debt to the tune of £20 million and membership is 'falling dramatically'.

What a bloody shame.

And in true Labour fashion they want the rules changed because they don't benefit from the current ones anymore.

He said membership of the party was falling dramatically and called for limits on political parties' spending.

During the election the Conservatives were able to spend more than Labour.

Perhaps if Fatty Prescott was barred from the subsidised canteen at Labour HQ the debt might disappear in six months or so.

The fat bastard.

Get angry on a Sunday.

There's something not quite right with this country, is there? See how hi-viz jacketed bullying cunts get help from the state in order to harass and steal from one of us.

Their contempt for us all is total.

Remember, when asked "do you understand?" always say NO. The system relies on our compliance and consent. Saying no fucks it up.

With thanks to Captain Ranty for raising my blood pressure.

Something to ponder.

A comment from this post.

Here's how the NWO thinks:

NWO 1: How do we create a one world government?
NWO 2: We need a war in order to unite all people to it
NWO 1: How do we create a war?
NWO 2: Simple, we create an enemy
NWO 1: How do we create an enemy?
NWO 2: We do the same as we did with Russia, create one
NWO 1: But who?
NWO 2: Well there's only one left - Islam as we've quite happily got the ignorant gentiles believing that Judaism is Christianity with Synagogues.
NWO 1: How do we go about making Islam our enemy?
NWO 2: Simple again. We use our media to promote the hatred of Islam and their culture and better still we allow mass immigration into the west, allow Islam to grow, watch as it digs a hole for itself by demanding Islamisation of the west and create an opposing force against it in the indigenous nationals. And then we start wars in Islamic lands...
NWO 1: But how do we start the wars, if they don't attack us, as they can't with us being too far away and too heavily defended?
NWO 2: We attack our own people and blame it on the Muslims. We can start of with small-fry stuff; murders of tourists, officials in Islamic lands moving up to plane hijacking and then onto massive attacks in our own lands. I don't know, something like flying planes into tall buildings with lots of people inside.
NWO 1: The public won't buy that. They're not that stupid.
NWO 2: Oh yes they are. Remember whoever controls the media controls the public. We control the media, we tell the media what to tell the people and they will follow.
NWO 1: Really? That simple?
NWO 2: Of course! And even better, once we've blown up part of our society, to add further insult to injury and to rally even more support for a war against Islam, we'll build a Mosque slap bang on the destruction zone, we created and instigated and blamed on the Muslims.
NWO 1: Ah yes, now I see it's so simple isn't it?
NWO 2: Of course it is. We've been doing it for centuries, playing people off against one another in order to provoke the outcome that we wanted from the start.
NWO 1: And the public won't catch on?
NWO 2: Well, of course there will be those who will see through the facade, but all we do is laugh them off as conspiracy theorists, turn the public they're trying to protect against them, again with our control of the main stream media. The public is an animal without a head and as long as we stop the head from being put on its shoulders we can't fail. We build our world on deceit. We have Goebbels to thank for his most brilliant lie theory and it works a dream!

And the wheel continues to revolve......

Bye bye rodent!

Is Glasgow council full of fuckwits?

Or are they taking us for fuckwits?

In April, the council denied Network Private Hire an operators licence after police argued it had links to organised crime.

And in the news today...

BBC Scotland has learned that Network Private Hire has successfully increased its share of a contract ferrying vulnerable children to and from school.

Seems that crooks look after each other. Funny old world.

You'll struggle to find this story in the MSM

On Sunday, June 6th, a multi-ethnic, multi-racial coalition of Americans opposed to Islamic violence and intolerance rallied at the site of the World Trade Center in New York City.

Can you imagine what would happen here in the UK if a similar sized protest was held?

Leftie Mongtard of the Day

Anyone who objects to the opening of this mosque is Islamophobic, end of. Because you're assuming that the terrorists who destroyed the Twin Towers are exactly the same as all other Muslims - which is so obviously untrue that you're either deliberately skewing the facts to fit your sad prejudices, or a moron. In fact, ideologically those terrorists have more in common with Christian fundamentalists. But I bet you wouldn't be outraged if yet another Christian church was built in Manhattan.

From Littlecocks column in the Daily Hate.

Britain getting cleverer.

It's official. Britain is cleverer than last year. And last year we were cleverer than the year before. And the year before that.... well, you get the picture.

So, if our kids are achieving record results every year why is it that with each new crop of bright young things that start their working career at my place of employment seem dumber than the last?

Usually they are at university and work part time to keep them in beer and fags. I have the misfortune to encounter them when I start on the night shift as they, being part time, are on the backshift.

I can honestly say, hand on heart, that as each year passes the youngsters that flood onto the job market get dumber and dumber as well as lazier and lazier.

And the result of a Labour education is all too evident as the 'everyone is a winner' ethos that permeated the education system is written all over their shiny wee faces when they are told, probably for the first time, that their work is not good enough or that they are not fast enough or whatever.

They have never been challenged for performance in their lives. And when they reach the real world it's a total shock when the cold, hard truth is laid out before them.

Tesco mentioned this last year.

But, I suppose Labour wanted dumb kids because they grow into dumb adults. Dumb adults = Labour core voters.

It doesn't take a genius.

Does it?

They wear shell suits and have sovereign rings on all fingers.

Simple stuff, if you ask me.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

I doubt that....

...many of my blogging chums will agree with me, (except Mark), on the following.

This is the most selfish generation of homeowners in British history. Until we confront our own selfishness, there will continue to be huge housing shortages, especially for young and less-affluent citizens.

I find myself in total agreement* with Labour MP Denis MacShane on his Observer article.

As far as I am concerned, the right to buy scheme should never have happened.

* I'm off for a lie down with a cold flannel on my forehead.

Our alcohol hypocrisy

Up here in the northern wild badlands of Britain, we are constantly nagged by the Righteous that we have a major problem with alcohol consumption. I suppose Scotland likes a bevvy, although personally speaking I rarely touch it. It's a matter for the individual how much he or she drinks. None of my business.

Yesterday you couldn't turn on the TV/radio without being lectured about the demon drink, courtesy of childline and fake charity NSPCC.

Last night, Alcohol Focus Scotland got in on the act with a report on STV news last night in which some talking head from the 'charity' trying to gain some publicity, (and funding), on the back of the childline story. All run of the mill stuff.

Drink is bad, think of the cheeeeeeldren. We are drinking ourselves into an early grave etc etc.

A couple of news reports later and the newsreader bids us goodnight and hands the viewing public over to the STV sports centre for some footie reports.

STV Sports Centre is sponsored by....

Scottish Leader Whisky.

A whisky which is normally sold as 'house' whisky in 'old man' pubs. It is also the 'official whisky' of Celtic.

The first report is about the Old Firm, (Rangers and Celtic). Both teams have their kit sponsored by....

Tennents Lager.

And that, dear reader, sums up the whole thing.

"Fuck you", council tell tax payers.

From his bunker buried deep within the bowels of the city chambers, the leader of Glasgow City Council proclaims that he needs more cash from the council tax payer or there will be "massive cuts".

That reminds me. In the Rab household we could do with a bit extra cash due to rising costs. I'll have a word with my boss and demand a salary hike.

Or I could sit down with the wife and have a look at what we spend our hard earned cash on and cut out the crap we don't really need.

I'm not sure about "massive cuts" in Glasgow, but the council appear to be 'massive cunts'.

However, seeing as the good people of Glasgow voted for the Labour tosspots in the first place, they deserve everything they get.

The Labour cock sucking, weegie, buckfast addled, wife beating, benefit claiming, bed sheets for curtains, shell suit wearing, victim mentality, dead before fifty bastards.

Tony knows....

The survey also reveals that eight out of ten people want a full inquest. With senior MPs making the same demand, the Coalition is under strong pressure to act.

It comes as a medical report says it was ‘impossible’ that Dr Kelly bled to death in the way described by the inquiry.

Just ask Tony Bliar. He knows...

The First World War as a pub fight.

Stolen from Dick who stole it from Theo Sparks

Germany, Austria and Italy are stood together in the middle of the pub, when Serbia bumps into Austria, and spills Austria's pint.

Austria demands Serbia buy it a complete new suit, because there are splashes on its trouser leg.

Germany expresses its support for Austria's point of view.

Britain recommends that everyone calm down a bit.

Serbia points out that it can't afford a whole suit, but offers to pay for cleaning Austria's trousers.

Russia and Serbia look at Austria.

Austria asks Serbia who it's looking at.

Russia suggests that Austria should leave its little brother alone.

Austria inquires as to whose army will assist Russia in compelling it to do so.

Germany appeals to Britain that France has been looking at it, and that this is sufficiently out of order that Britain should not intervene.

Britain replies that France can look at who it wants to, that Britain is looking at Germany too, and what is Germany going to do about it?

Germany tells Russia to stop looking at Austria, or Germany will render Russia incapable of such action.

Britain and France ask Germany whether it's looking at Belgium.

Turkey and Germany go off into a corner and whisper. When they come back, Turkey makes a show of not looking at anyone.

Germany rolls up its sleeves, looks at France, and punches Belgium.

France and Britain punch Germany. Austria punches Russia. Germany punches Britain and France with one hand and Russia with the other.

Russia throws a punch at Germany, but misses and nearly falls over. Japan calls over from the other side of the room that it's on Britain's side, but stays there. Italy surprises everyone by punching Austria.

Australia punches Turkey, and gets punched back. There are no hard feelings, because Britain made Australia do it.

France gets thrown through a plate glass window, but gets back up and carries on fighting. Russia gets thrown through another one, gets knocked out, suffers brain damage, and wakes up with a complete personality change.

Italy throws a punch at Austria and misses, but Austria falls over anyway. Italy raises both fists in the air and runs round the room chanting.

America waits till Germany is about to fall over from sustained punching from Britain and France, then walks over and smashes it with a barstool, then pretends it won the fight all by itself.

By now all the chairs are broken, and the big mirror over the bar is shattered. Britain, France and America agree that Germany threw the first punch, so the whole thing is Germany's fault . While Germany is still unconscious, they go through its pockets, steal its wallet, and buy drinks for all their friends.

Local press does Capita's dirty work.

For those of you that may be unaware, the job of forcing us all to pay the TV licence is not done by the BBC nor 'TV Licensing'.

Auntie Beeb employs enforcers who pretend to be the BBC/TV licensing when engaging with those who cannot or will not pay for the privilege of subsidising Leftist propaganda which is pumped into the airwaves regardless if we want it or not.

Every six months or so my local newspaper has a little story and it looks like this week is that week again when the following is printed;

TV licence dodgers are fined

New figures show that almost 900 TV licence dodgers in Kilmarnock were caught during the first six months of 2010.

The 887 local 'evaders' are among almost 209,000 people caught across the UK during the first half of the year.

The average evasion rate remains at a low of just five per cent, meaning that almost 95 per cent of properties are correctly licensed.

Fergus Reid, TV Licensing spokesperson, said:

"The vast majority of people in Kilmarnock pay their licence fee, and to be fair to those who pay, we have to be firm with those who attempt to get away without paying.

We take TV licence evasion seriously but we give people every opportunity to pay, we will not hesitate to prosecute if people continue to break the law.

We do understand that some people may find it difficult to pay their licence fee in one go, which is why we offer numerous ways to spread the cost, including monthly direct debit, which can be set up very quickly online, and a weekly cash payment plan."

Anyone watching television television illegally risks prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.

Tell you what Fergus, old bean.

Fuck right off. And Crapita can fuck right off as well.

And shame on the Kilmarnock Standard, and any other local rag, for printing bollocks like the above.

Fight back. Loads of info here.

Lady Warsi speaks....

I'm a lawyer. I can tell you that if an individual had run up debts so irresponsibly they would face legal consequences ...

By running up colossal debts on the nation's credit card, debts so huge that we have been borrowing one pound for every four we spend and increasing our national debt by £3bn a week, what Labour did to British people is frankly criminal.


But she backtracks slightly later on.

I think it was a manner of speech that I was using ... Labour's conduct has been pretty appalling, but frankly I have to say that, as far as I'm aware, it has not been criminal.

I beg to differ.

Police - Out of control and unaccountable

No, I'm not talking about an album by Sting and his two chums.

I'm talking about Plod. And for a change I'm not after the front line paramilitary thugs who pretend they are police officers. I'm after the ACPO and ACPOS membership.

We know all about ACPO and ACPOS. Both private companies who lobby and 'advise' the government on policing issues. Both with political agendas to further the interests of their membership. A membership which consists of officers who barely remember what it is like to set foot outside of a police station, except when heading off to the BBC to spout some guff.

It irritates me greatly that the policing 'elite' seem to think that it is perfectly acceptable that one of their number can pop up anywhere in the media to give opinion on matters from an ACPO perspective, the latest being Mick Giannasi who is Chief Constable of Gwent and is also the roads spokesman for ACPO.

Mr Giannasi saw fit to criticise the decision of the Government to trim back spending that may entail councils removing speed cameras. What business it is of ACPO to lobby the media and the public, (as well as the government), is beyond me.

However, the activities mentioned above pale into insignificance when Chief Constables up and down the land decide to ignore direct instructions from the Home Office.

On June 29th, Theresa May addressed the ACPO conference held in Manchester and instructed all police forces in England and Wales to abolish the target driven nonsense created over thirteen years of Labour government.

And I can also announce today that I am also scrapping the confidence target and the policing pledge with immediate effect.

I know that some officers like the policing pledge, and some, I’m sure, like the comfort of knowing they’ve ticked boxes. But targets don’t fight crime; targets hinder the fight against crime. In scrapping the confidence target and the policing pledge, I couldn’t be any clearer about your mission: it isn’t a thirty-point plan; it is to cut crime. No more, and no less.

Her words. Crystal clear. Or are they?

Apparently they are not clear enough. It would seem that many forces have chosen to ignore the Home Secretary. This, as far as I am concerned, is a step too far.

Of course, at first glance they have complied. But dig a little deeper, as the excellent Inspector Gadget has done, and it is plain to see that all the pen pushing plod have done is move or re-name the boxes that gets ticked. Nothing has changed, not really.

It's way past the time that the police need to be taken by the scruff of the neck and shown who is boss. Led by vain, publicity seeking, separated from reality desk bound careerists, the police have lost the plot and the confidence of the public.

They could do well to remember these.

And their place.

Council punishes bad Tory teacher.

Philip Lardner, who was the Tory candidate for North Ayrshire and Arran at the General Election before being suspended by the Party, has been given a written warning by his employer, Renfrewshire Council.

Mr Lardner is a teacher and the SNP/LibDem coalition controlled council took exception to remarks made on his campaign website in which he stated that homosexuality is not normal and expressed support for section 28.

Obviously a bunch of screaming gay attention seekers picked up on his comments and created a fuss. Which Dave 'nice but dim' Cameron had to act upon by suspending Mr Lardner who basically said 'fuck you all' and stood as an independent candidate anyway.

Just what Renfrewshire council thought it had to do with them and Mr Lardner's employment is anyone's guess. I suppose they had to be seen to be punishing the bad Tory for daring to use his right of freedom of speech. After all, we've got to think of the cheeeeldren, right?

From the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald,

Philip Lardner, the controversial Conservative candidate for North Ayrshire and Arran at the General Election, has been issued with a written warning by his employers.

He said this week he will appeal.

Renfrewshire Council have rapped schoolteacher Mr Lardner - who was eventually suspended as a candidate by the Tories but stood as an independent - over comments he made about homosexuals on his website. A gay group had complained about them.

The war of words escalated when a number of Party members continued to back Mr Lardner - campaigning on his behalf and giving support on election night - leading to the resignation of Dalry and West Kilbride councillor Robert Barr, who was a Lardner supporter.

"I'll be challenging this as I have not done anything wrong," said the defiant Tory - who is still a party member - this week.

"I think they are wrong in principle but clearly felt that as they couldn't sack me over this issue they had to do something. It send out a bad message about the rights of teachers to freedom of speech."

It send out a bad message alright, Mr Lardner. But not just to teachers.
