- Lack of security of tenure with most leases in Ireland between 6-12 months.
- Illegal rent attention of security deposit by landlords.
The Islamisation of Birmingham
“there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim
where non-Moslems just simply don’t go”
Steve Emerson, Terrorism Expert, on Fox News
Most reckon it was the day Ozzy Osbourne
walked out the gates of Winson Green Prison,
ready to commit acts of musical terrorism
in a desperate effort to undermine Christ,
that the City began turning instead
to Mecca. All agree
the situation grew
more serious each time Roy Wood sang:
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
in the hope we wouldn’t notice
the big mad beard he got
at a training camp in Pakistan.
Spaghetti Junction was already
jammed with Moslem only vehicles,
the night the Mulberry Bush
and Tavern in the Town
were blown up by Moslems
disguised as IRA men.
Since then every nil all draw
between Aston Villa and Birmingham City
has been celebrated by stadiums half full
of nothing but Moslems.
Truth is, it started way back,
the night Chamberlain signed
his secret treaty with Adolf, agreeing
in the event of war with Russia, to hand
the birthplace of Enoch Powell
over to the Islams.
These days the local economy is mostly
Jaguar Cars and Cadbury’s chocolate
being secretly manufactured by Moslems
for export to terrorist countries busy
thinking up new ways to kill us.
Note: All people, pubs, companies, and football teams mentioned in this poem are native to Birmingham, with the exception of the late Adolf Hitler, who was born in the small Austrian town of Braunau am Inn, though his people did visit Birmingham in 1940, 41, 42, & 43.

In the winter of 1890, near the end of the North American Indian Wars, members of a band of Minneconjou and Hunkpapa Lakota were attacked and killed by the US Army in what is known as the Wounded Knee Massacre. Unarmed and in the process of surrendering, the Lakota people were
slaughtered by the United States Army’s 7th Cavalry. As many as 300 Native American men, women, and children lost their lives. The dead were thrown into a mass grave.
