Was Downton Dog Killed Because Of Its Name

November 3, 2014

In last night’s episode of Downton Abbey, Lord Wossizname’s dog was killed off, not violently – we are still a nation of dog lovers after all – but while involved in a three-in-a-bed session with His Lordship and The Countess.

Speculation was rife today that the extremely healthy looking dog was written out of the series because its name was ISIS and this was spreading fear and panic among viewers because that is the name of a middle eastern terror group. Adding credence to this unsubstantiated rumour was the appearance in the episode of The Countess Of Moneypenny (played by Samantha Bond) who had obviously been sent by MI5 to deal with any extremist infiltrators.

You may scoff, but these things must be bought into the public domain (and there’s no interesting news today). And it is not beyond the bounds of possibility as you will see when we show you the story below, concerning Britain’s biggest supermarket.

Al Qaeda Threaten Terrorist Attacks On Britain If Hate Preacher Abu Qatada Is Deported

April 21, 2012

Militant Al Qaeda faction Al Shabaab has warned that Britain will face terror attacks if Islamic extemist and hate ptreadcing cleric Abu Qatada is deported to his homeland, Jordan.

The Al Qaeda militants warned of a “disaster” for Britain if the Government attempts to send Qatada home to face charges of sedition and inciting terrorism.

SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online activity from terrorist groups, said al-Shabaab had issued its warning on militant forums.

“The British public is also forewarned that it will be the British government, as a result of its imprudence, that shall be liable for any disaster that befalls them, or their national interests,” the statement said.. It comes a week after Al-Qaeda threatened to attack Britain if it decides to extradite Qatada.

In a statement signed by Al-Qaeda’s general command and published on jihadist forums, the terror network said Abu Qatada’s extradition would “open the gates of evil” on “Britain and its citizens everywhere.” (Read the full story).

This is nothing much to worry about of course, it’s very likely nothing more than typical middle eastern windbaggery. With any luck a few wannabe martyrs (the lure of 72 virgins is strong) will blow themselves up trying to build bombs, life in Britain will go n unmolested and the majority of law abinding Muslims will ontinue to live peacefully, side by side with their atheist, agnostic and Christian neighbours.
