Ridiculous Rotherham Council Must Face Severe Consequences

with 2 comments

Joyce Thacker, Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services at Rotherham Council

Rotherham Borough Council has removed three foster children from their foster parents because they belong to UKIP.

BBC story here.  Daily Telegraph story here.

The council has said that the children are “not indigenous white British” and that it had concerns about UKIP’s stance on immigration.  The couple themselves have said that Rotherham Council social workers had accused them of belonging to a “racist party”.

This is disgusting prejudice and discrimination in the name of political correctness, one of the most insidious and dangerous trends in our society.  I believe that such action should be subject to criminal prosecution in exactly the same way as racist conduct would be.

If it is a criminal offence to be racist then it must be equally serious falsely to accuse someone of the same.

I am not a member of UKIP but I have voted for them in the past and probably will do so again.  To describe its policies as racist is disgraceful and abusive.  It also demonstrates an absolute incompetence by Rotherham Council to manage communications and relationships properly.

If people are sent to prison for racist comments on Facebook and Twitter then I expect the same consequences for the council officials and social workers concerned in this case.

The State Of Our Nation

with 8 comments

I am not a racist.  My oldest friend is a jet black Jamaican.  However, on New Year’s Eve, when I drove down from my parents’ house in Hertfordshire to see that self-same friend in Maida Vale I was horrified at what I saw on Kilburn High Road.  Even more so than when I lived there, nearly three years ago, it has been swamped with immigrants.

Right through London there was barely a white face to be seen.  The vast majority of women were wearing hijab.  Nearly every car contained an asian face with what seemed to me to be an unnaturally large amount of headroom.  Muslim culture seems to predominate.  I feel isolated in my own country.

I remember when I attended my son’s graduation at UEA in June, perhaps half the faces that went to collect a degree were oriental.  I don’t care if they paid for the privilege, there are too many of them!  We have lost our balance.

Clearly, immigration has been of great benefit to Britain from the Irish in the 1930s, the West Indians in the 1950s, the Asians in the 70s and now Eastern Europeans.  Our economy and our society have improved because people from overseas have come to live here.  In recent times though we have allowed it to become uncontrolled.  We have failed to manage it effectively.  Many recent immigrants are disadvantaged themselves  because of our weak, irresponsible, open door policy.

If our idiotic politicians cannot see what is wrong then I despair.  They have neglected and damaged our nation through ridiculous adherence to political correctness.  I want my country back.

Islam has become a source of great evil in the world and it is time we reconsidered our patience and tolerance of it.  We have been taken advantage of.  The idea that Sharia law should have any force in Britain is outrageous.  “Multiculturalism” is not only a dreadful word but an idea that is making no sense.  It seems that many immigrants don’t want it either.  When they come here they want to group themselves into ghettoes.  They separate themselves from our national culture.  Some want all the benefits of what Britain stands for without any responsibility or participation.  We will not be a great nation without full and genuine integration between our people.

We see today the premier of Iceland standing up for his people and defying convention.  Whatever the rights and wrongs, it is time we had some of this in Britain but is there a single politician in this country with this sort of bravery?  I can’t think of one.

Unless our leaders can get a grip on what is happening then this is a recipe for Enoch Powell’s “rivers of blood”.   God has given us Obama who is clearly a force for good but we need more.  Who in Britain has the intelligence, the courage and the popular appeal to step up to the plate?

Politically Correct Fools

Come Fly With Me!

It is a crazy and entirely self-defeating idea to protest at the appearance of Nick Griffin on Question Time.

Similarly, to complain of the BNP’s use of World War II images and propaganda is just nonsense. Those who cling to the oily and sticky ideas of political correctness prove themselves to be fools again and again.

I’d rather have some straightforward anti-Nazi nutter chanting in my face than these slimy, unpleasant, dishonest, machiavellian meddlers. These creeps who stir up opposition even to the BNP’s existence, who are so utterly hypocritical in their wish to censor and repress the BNP.  Are they so insecure in their own beliefs that they think the BNP can ever make any real progress?

I applaud the BBC for having the courage to show a pretty young protestor being dragged across a polished floor screaming “This is what they do to protect the Nazis. Shame on you BBC!”.

On the contrary, congratulations to the BBC. Your conduct throughout this affair has been noble and of the highest standard of fairness and equality.

I think Nick Griffin is a pretty dubious and unpleasant character. I would like to hear more from him about his policies and I’d like to see him quizzed by Andrew Marr or Jeremy Paxman. At present I don’t understand exactly what he really advocates. Like millions of British citizens, I do not consider myself a racist but I do believe in Britain for the British. I don’t understand why a Muslim Lawyers or a Black Police Officers organisation is OK but an organisation for white British is denounced and reviled.

This debate needs to be aired.  We need to hear more from Mr Griffin so that we can make up our own minds.  Those who seek to silence him are their own worst enemies.
