WARNING: Truly Shocking Attack Video.
These four vicious Somalian girls recently walked free from a British court after Judge Robert Brown declared that, as Muslims, they were not used to drinking alcohol, and therefore were not really responsible for what they were doing.
Personally I couldn't care less whether they were Muslims, Catholics or Atheists, this was an extremely serious unprovoked racist assault, accompanied by a tirade of anti white hate-comments. They each should have received the MAXIMUM prison sentences possible (and then be deported).
Sadly, this is not an isolated case in England, where criminals can expect the most lenient courts, and pathetic sentences, in the world.
These four above welcomed their freedom by celebrating on 'facebook'. Their poor victim, 22 year old, care worker, Rhea Page, will probably never fully recover.
What the hell has happened to poor old Blighty? I absolutely despair of this new-style, loony-left, human-rights obsessed, 'Tony and Cheery' nation.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
