Whether your planning a night out down the pub, going shopping with the Mrs, cutting the lawn, trimming your hedges, arguing with loved ones or getting to the point of throwing your PC out of the window. Just be happy that you have the chance to do all the things you love and hate.

Take a minute to remember the 7th of July bombings in London and those who lost love ones.

The recent attempted bombings in London & Glasgow could make more people support the far-right parties like the BNP or those wanting the asian/muslim minority out of the country.

Enoch Powells 'rivers of blood' speach comes to mind!

Very sadly their are those at work who will do anything to de-stablise the country through acts of terror!!

And I quote:

"In this country in fifteen or twenty years time, the black man will have the whip had over the white man."

Its funny isn't it. The BNP and other far-right organizations use the speech to try and sway the public primarily against Muslims, when in fact when he made the speech he was talking about those from the commonwealth - prodominantly those in Africa and India, where 80% of the population are Hindu :p

Still, I should hope that we have outgrown the idea of one race being better than another by now. Obviously, there are extremists, like the Muslim terrorists, the KKK and such, but it is ignorance mainly that causes all the unrest.

The problem of terrorism is completely seperate from that of national pride, identity, immigration etc that seem to all be rolled into one when the BNP is around. The sooner that is realised, the sooner the BNP will shrivel up and go away, as it becomes apparent that they have no real argument
