Leo McKinstry is the mainstream political journalist whose views most closely resemble my own.
Bear in mind as you peruse Mr McKinstry's opinions that he was once a Labour councillor and an aide to New Labour's Deputy Leader, Harriet Harman. Of Harman, he had this to say in the article, Why does Harriet Harman hate marriage? first seen in The Daily Express on 28 May 2008:
"None is more hardline than the High Priestess of British Feminism, Harriet Harman. In an extraordinary interview published yesterday, she declared MARRIAGE WAS 'IRRELEVANT' TO PUBLIC POLICY AND DESCRIBED HIGH RATES OF SEPARATION AS A 'POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT'… Neither the facts nor the passage of time have changed her mind. She was preaching this dangerous gospel of feminist fascism when she was first elected to Parliament in 1982.
When I came to work for her as a parliamentary aide in the early Nineties, HARMAN WAS QUESTIONING WHETHER FATHERS WERE NECESSARY AT ALL. In her 26 years as MP, she appears to have learnt nothing from representing the poor South London constituency of Camberwell and Peckham. It not only has one of the highest rates of lone parenthood in the country, but is also one of the most deprived and crime-ridden areas in Britain. Yet in Harriet Harman's mind, these two points are not connected.
As a naive young Ulsterman, hailing from a middle- class, two-parent home in Belfast, I was shocked at the complete absence of responsible fathers in the big housing estates that dominated the constituency. Yet this wilful creation of fractured society in her own midst did not bother Harriet.
'Families come in all shapes and sizes', has long been one of the favourite mantras of the Left. Research studies have shown, however, that children do better when raised in married families. Tony Blair's favourite think-tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research, concluded that A STABLE BACKGROUND MEANS YOU ARE LESS LIKELY TO BE OUT OF WORK, LIVE OFF THE STATE, BECOME SINGLE PARENTS OR EVEN SMOKE. CHILDREN OF MARRIED PARENTS DO BETTER IN EXAMS, ACCORDING TO OTHER STUDIES, AND ARE LESS LIKELY TO HAVE MENTAL DIFFICULTIES.
The Commons Home Affairs Committee has shown that LEVELS OF FAMILY BREAKDOWN AMONG THE BLACK COMMUNITY ARE PROPELLING TEENAGERS INTO A LIFE OF CRIME. This was all too evident in Peckham's phenomenal caseload, arising from AN ARMY OF CONSTITUENTS WHO WERE RELIANT ON THE STATE FOR ALL THEIR NEEDS, which meant I found working for Harriet an extremely demanding job... She had a tyrannical reputation, notorious for her unreasonable demands and hectoring manner…
Over the past decade, I have become increasingly disillusioned. I can now see what aggravates so many people about her: THE POLITICALLY CORRECT CONDESCENSION; SMUG SELF-CERTAINTY DESPITE A RECORD OF INCOMPETENCE; THE WHIFF OF BORN-TO-RULE ARROGANCE; THE ATTACHMENT TO THE SHIBBOLETHS OF MULTI-CULTURALISM AND FEMINISM.
HARMAN IS THE EMBODIMENT OF SO MUCH THAT IS WRONG WITH NEW LABOUR. BORN INTO AFFLUENT PRIVILEGE HERSELF, HARMAN IS THAT CLASSIC SOCIALIST TYPE THAT REGARDS THE ROBUST BRITISH WORKING CLASS WITH SUSPICION.
But Harriet's greatest vice - and there are many - is her hypocrisy. She is now the Deputy Leader of a party that, in its latest by-election campaign in Crewe, has descended into the gutter of class warfare, deriding its opponents as 'toffs'. Yet FEW FIGURES IN MODERN POLITICS HAVE ENJOYED GREATER PRIVILEGE THAN HARMAN. Her father was a Harley Street surgeon, her uncle the Earl of Longford... And like so many of the New Labour elite, SHE HAS NEVER HAD A REAL JOB in the commercial world. Before she entered Parliament, she worked as the legal officer for the radical pressure group, the National Council for Civil Liberties.
Further hypocrisy comes in the way she is raising her family - HARMAN'S ATTACHMENT TO THE SOCIALIST IDEAL OF COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION CLEARLY DOES NOT EXTEND TO HER OWN LIFE. SHE SENT ONE OF HER SONS TO A GRANT-MAINTAINED SCHOOL, ANOTHER TO A SELECTIVE GRAMMAR, REINFORCING THE BELIEF THAT TOO MANY LABOUR POLITICIANS REFUSE TO PRACTISE WHAT THEY PREACH.
Living in the leafy enclave of Dulwich, Harman's detachment from her constituents' lives was further reflected when she wore a stab-proof vest for a tour of Peckham, even though she was escorted by three police officers…
In 11 years of Labour rule she has no significant achievements to her name. She was sacked from the Cabinet by Blair in 1998 for making a hash of the policy of welfare reform. Since then she has used a succession of jobs, first Solicitor-General and now Minister for Equalities and Leader of the Commons as a platform to propound her dated brand of feminism…
HARMAN IS FOND OF TALKING ABOUT EQUALITY, BUT HER POLICIES MOVE IN PRECISELY THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. So she has called for the introduction of U.S.-style POSITIVE DISCRIMINATION for job candidates, WHERE FEMALE AND ETHNIC MINORITY CANDIDATES ARE FAVOURED OVER WHITE MALES.
This is in direct contradiction of equal opportunities. NOTHING COULD BE MORE UNJUST, PATRONISING OR DISCRIMINATORY THAN AWARDING JOBS ON THE BASIS OF SKIN COLOUR OR GENDER. THE SAME IS TRUE OF HER SCHEME TO PROMOTE ALL-BLACK SHORTLISTS IN ELECTIONS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF NON-WHITE MPS. BUT THEN HARMAN HAS NEVER HAD TIME FOR THE BRITISH PUBLIC, PREFERRING TO PATRONISE RATHER THAN LISTEN. SHE WANTS TO SHAPE SOCIETY INSTEAD OF SERVING ITS GENUINE NEEDS.
HER ENTIRE CAREER, BASED ON THE ELITIST BELIEF THAT SHE KNOWS BEST, REPRESENTS A BETRAYAL OF THE TRADITIONAL WORKING CLASS - THE VERY PEOPLE LABOUR WAS FOUNDED TO REPRESENT."
What Leo McKinstry rails against in the following compilation, ladies and gentlemen, describes pretty accurately what I, also, am fighting against.
"THE GOVERNANCE OF LABOUR’S BRITAIN INCREASINGLY RESEMBLES THE WORKINGS OF A LUNATIC ASYLUM. ALL MORALITY HAS BEEN INVERTED. JUSTICE HAS BEEN TURNED ON ITS HEAD. COMMON SENSE IS DERIDED, CRACKPOT IDEOLOGY CELEBRATED. SO THE GOVERNMENT WILFULLY DESTROYS OUR BORDERS, APPEASES MILITANT ISLAM, TURNS LONDON INTO THE GLOBAL CAPITAL OF JIHAD, THEN HAS THE NERVE TO BOAST OF ITS DETERMINATION TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM TERRORISM.
Tax payers hand over a third of their income to the State only to see handouts and luxury homes lavished on spongers. But nothing exemplifies the twisted values of the Labour state more graphically than the misnamed justice system. WE LIVE UNDER A SOCIALIST REGIME WHERE DECENT CITIZENS ARE TREATED AS CRIMINAL SUSPECTS, YET REAL CRIMINALS WALK FREE BECAUSE THE AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN SO ENFEEBLED BY BUREAUCRACY AND LEFTWING DOGMA.
The State devotes a huge effort to intensive surveillance, compiling vast databases and carpeting the country with CCTV and speed cameras BUT THE POLICE AND COURTS SO OFTEN FAIL TO ACT WHEN PRESENTED WITH HARD EVIDENCE OF SERIOUS CRIME.
Similarly the Government is building the world’s largest identity register and wants us all to carry ID cards YET HAS CREATED SOCIAL ANARCHY THROUGH UNCONTROLLED MASS IMMIGRATION, WHICH IS THE GREATEST ENGINE OF IDENTITY FRAUD.
This grotesque dissonance was highlighted at the weekend by two stories. On one hand it was reported that a group of government agencies, led by Kent police, is to buy unmanned drones to spy on the population. These militarystyle aircraft will target everyone from motorists to protesters. As If the Big Brother machine is not big enough, the Kent constabulary says these drones will ‘greatly extend’ the State’s capacity for surveillance and ‘revolutionise policing‘.
On the other hand there was the continuing fallout from the torture case in Doncaster, in which a pair of sadistic brothers, brought up in a toxic environment of drugs, pornography and domestic violence, almost murdered two boys in a sustained attack of frenzied savagery. Yet IN THIS GRUESOME CASE, DESPITE THE LONG HISTORY OF CRIMINAL AND ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR FROM THE BROTHERS AND THEIR FAMILY, NEITHER THE POLICE NOR COURTS DID ANYTHING UNTIL MURDER WAS ALMOST PERPETRATED. THE ENTIRE EFFORT OF THE AUTHORITIES SEEMS TO HAVE GONE INTO SUPPORTING THIS MALEVOLENT FAMILY INSTEAD OF PUNISHING ITS VICIOUS CONDUCT. AS A RESULT LIFE FOR MANY IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD WAS MADE A MISERY.
The police should concentrate on tackling thuggery rather than indulging in expensive power games. Their obsession with surveillance and the latest technology is actually undermining the fight against crime. OFFICERS SHOULD BE OUT ON THE BEAT PROTECTING THE PUBLIC, NOT PLAYING WITH TOYS.
The eagerness to buy fancy new equipment blows apart the continual bleat we hear from chief constables about ‘lack of resources‘, the excuse they use to justify their dismal failures. It was a mantra heard regularly in the scandalous case of Fiona Pilkington, the Leicestershire mother who burnt herself and her profoundly disabled daughter to death after the police did nothing to prevent an appalling campaign of harassment against her family.
But the wails about under funding are nonsense. In truth the police have never had more money. Their total budget has increased by 60 per cent since 1997 to £11billion this year, while the number of officers has gone up by 14,000. THERE ARE MORE THAN 140,000 OFFICERS IN THE POLICE, COMPARED TO 80,000 IN 1959. YET THE LEVEL OF CRIME HAS INCREASED TENFOLD OVER THAT HALFCENTURY, PARTLY BECAUSE THE POLICE HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO DO THEIR JOB AND THE COURTS HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO PUNISH DANGEROUS OFFENDERS.
There is a dramatic contrast between the ferocious energy the State devotes to hounding motorists who park in the wrong spot or householders who put rubbish out on the wrong day and its craven surrender to criminality.
LAST YEAR THE POLICE AND OTHER AGENCIES HANDED OUT NO FEWER THAN 200,000 SPOT FINES FOR MISDEMEANOURS SUCH AS FEEDING A DUCK IN A PUBLIC PARK. YET IN THE PAST EIGHT YEARS 2.2 MILLION CRIMINALS HAVE BEEN LET OFF WITH POLICE CAUTIONS FOR OFFENCES THAT INCLUDE THEFT, BURGLARY, ACTUAL BODILY HARM AND RAPE. Some serial law breakers have had four or more repeat cautions, making a mockery of any concept of justice.
The end of this month marks the deadline for selfemployed people, like myself, to hand in our tax returns. Anyone missing the deadline, making mistakes on the complex forms or failing to give the correct sum to the Treasury is liable to heavy fines or imprisonment. Yet A FORTNIGHT AGO WE SAW HOW ROMANIAN SQUATTERS COULD SMASH THEIR WAY INTO A HOME IN NORTH LONDON WHILE IT WAS BEING RENOVATED AND TAKE OVER THE PROPERTY WITHOUT A FINGER BEING LIFTED BY POLICE. Indeed OFFICERS SEEMED MORE CONCERNED THAT JULIAN AND SAMANTHA MOSEDALE HAD DARED TO QUESTION THE ROMANIANS’ IMMIGRATION STATUS THAN THAT THEIR HOUSE HAD BEEN STOLEN.
Even the criminals who reach court are treated with excessive leniency. Last week CHERIE BLAIR, SITTING AS A JUDGE IN THE INNER LONDON CROWN COURT, LET OFF A YOB WHO PUNCHED A MAN SO HARD IN THE FACE THAT HE BROKE HIS JAW… With figures like her in charge of the justice system it is no wonder violent crime has doubled under Labour. Yes, WE CERTAINLY NEED A REVOLUTION IN BRITAIN, ONE THAT PROTECTS RATHER THAN PUNISHES THE PUBLIC.” (Daily Express - 25 Janaury 2010)
"THE MODERN BRITISH STATE HAS BECOME AN INSTRUMENT OF OPPRESSION, NOT OF SERVICE… It is a bloated monster with a rapacious appetite for our money. The more it consumes, the more useless it becomes.
Our only hope is to put it on a ruthless diet. The idea that there is no scope for cuts without hitting the public is absurd. One straightforward measure would be to take an axe to the colossal bureaucracy that now prevails across our public life, reflected in the endless tiers of paper-shuffling, pen-pushing, box-ticking, procedure-following, report-issuing management that prevail in central and local government.
With rare candour, the labour MP Denis MacShane admitted recently:
‘I DO NOT KNOW OF A SINGLE MINISTER WHO PRIVATELY DOES NOT DESPAIR AT THE WASTE OF MONEY ON POINTLESS PROJECTS, PUBLICATIONS AND LEGIONS OF PRESS OFFICERS THAT ADD NO VALUE.’
The grotesquely high earnings for public sector bosses are a particular scandal, given that their jobs involve neither risk nor wealth creation. THERE ARE NOW MORE THAN 800 OFFICIALS EARNING MORE THAN £150,000 A YEAR, including such luminaries as Lin Homer, the head of the ineffectual UK border Agency on £231,000 a year, and Mark Haysom, chief executive of the much-criticised Learning and Skills council on £289,000.
THE STATE SECTOR IS RIDDLED WITH DEPARTMENTS AND QUANGOS THAT ARE OF NO COMPREHENSIBLE BENEFIT TO THE PUBLIC. We could abolish the £70million Equality and Human Rights commission tomorrow and THE ONLY CONSEQUENCE WOULD BE A FEELING OF RELIEF AT AN END TO THIS OUTFIT’S POLITICALLY CORRECT BULLYING. The same is true of the £2billion network of self-serving Regional Development Agencies and the £600million po-faced, posturing Arts Council.
EVEN BIGGER SAVINGS COULD BE ACHIEVED IF WE WITHDREW FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION, to which WE HAVE TO PAY A GROSS CONTRIBUTION OF £15BILLION A YEAR FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF HAVING OUR NATIONHOOD DESTROYED BY THE AUTOCRATS OF BRUSSELS.
ANOTHER £8BILLION COULD BE SAVED ANNUALLY BY ABOLISHING THE MAMMOTH OVERSEAS AID BUDGET, which is just a monument to Western guilt and does little for the developing world since MOST OF THE MONEY IS SIPHONED OFF BY CORRUPTION AND BUREAUCRACY. IT IS PATENTLY RIDICULOUS TO HAVE HANDED OVER £1BILLION IN SUPPORT TO INDIA, A COUNTRY WITH FAR MORE BILLIONAIRES AND MILLIONAIRES THAN BRITAIN.
The £180billion welfare system is another ripe target. There is nothing more unjust than the phenomenon of hard-working jobholders handing over a third of their income to the state, only to see the money squandered on underwriting the cushy lifestyles of the feckless and indolent. IT IS PARTICULARLY OUTRAGEOUS WHEN THE BENEFITS GO TO GRASPING MIGRANTS WHO HAVE MADE NO CONTRIBUTION TO OUR SOCIETY, as highlighted by a string of recent cases where new arrivals have been given housing benefits worth more than £100,000 to live in luxurious houses in West London, far beyond the dreams of most Britons.
WHY SHOULD WE BE REQUIRED TO SUPPORT IN OUR JAILS FOREIGN CRIMINALS WHO SHOULD BE DEPORTED OR GIVE WELFARE HAND OUTS TO MUSLIM EXTREMISTS WHO WANT TO BLOW US UP?” (Daily Express – 21 January 2010)
On the eve of the Battle of Britain in 1940, Spitfire pilot, Bill Millington, wrote this to his parents:
“Being British, I AM PROUD OF MY COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLES, proud to serve under the Union Jack AND REGARD IT AS AN ENGLISHMAN’S PRIVILEGE TO FIGHT FOR ALL THOSE THINGS THAT MAKE LIFE WORTH LIVING: FREEDOM, HONOUR AND FAIR PLAY.” (The Daily Express - 27 August 2009)
Bill made the ultimate sacrifice.
His plane was shot down during the conflict.
Leo McKinstry commented thus on the patriotic statement above:
“His words beautifully encapsulate the spirit of patriotism that galvanised the British people during the Second World War. It was the same deep love of our island home which inspired the soaring rhetoric of Winston Churchill, drove men to fight on the beaches of Normandy and the deserts of north Africa, compelled exhausted bomber crews to fly on missions for night after night over Germany, and enabled the British public to survive the Blitz so stoically.
PATRIOTISM IS ONE OF MAN-KIND’S MOST NOBLE IDEALS, an extension of THE NATURAL LOYALTY WE FEEL TO OUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. In its highest form, it requires us TO LAY DOWN OUR LIVES TO PROTECT OTHERS, just as a devoted husband might risk all to defend his wife or children.
But IN OUR MODERN AGE, PATRIOTISM IS DESPISED RATHER THAN ADMIRED. FOR THE MARXIST IDEOLOGUES WHO NOW RUN BRITAIN, LOVE OF COUNTRY IS A VICE, NOT A VIRTUE. As a result we are now encouraged to learn entirely the wrong lessons from the Second World War. Instead of being presented as a magnificent defence of our native land against a savage aggressor, THE CONFLICT IS NOW PORTRAYED AS A TRIUMPH FOR THE FORCES OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AGAINST RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM.
In this warped narrative the Second World War has been transformed into a gigantic crusade against xenophobia, while our soldiers, sailors and airmen are regarded as armed outreach workers in a vast anti- racism project. It is a bizarre paradox of our times that, THANKS TO THE PREDOMINANCE OF MULTI-CULTURAL DOGMA, THE PATRIOTIC INSTINCT THAT LED TO NATIONAL SALVATION IN 1945 IS NOW TREATED AS A THOUGHT CRIME.
THE SENSE OF UNIFYING NATIONAL IDENTITY THAT ONCE MOTIVATED MILLIONS OF BRITONS TO DEFEND THEIR HOMELAND IS HELD TO BE SUSPECT BY A POLITICAL ELITE OBSESSED WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY. WE ARE TOLD THAT OPPOSITION TO MASS IMMIGRATION IS THE EQUIVALENT OF SIDING WITH THE NAZIS...
It is impossible to imagine the Britain of 2009 enjoying the same sense of patriotic cohesion that existed in 1940 if our very existence came under threat. IN OFFICIAL CIRCLES, THE CONCEPT OF BRITISHNESS IS A SOURCE OF EMBARRASSMENT AND SHAME. WE ARE A NATION WHOSE SOVEREIGNTY HAS BEEN SURRENDERED TO BRUSSELS AND WHOSE UNITY HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY THE COLLAPSE OF OUR BORDERS.
The Second World War has been dragooned into service by the political zealots as a battering ram against our national identity. The Government’s own educational quango, the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, boasts that HISTORY TEACHING SHOULD BE A TOOL FOR ‘VALUING DIVERSITY AND CHALLENGING RACISM’ BY GAINING INSIGHTS ‘INTO ISSUES AROUND HUMAN RIGHTS, EQUALITY AND MIGRATION.’
EVERY MUSEUM RELATED TO THE SECOND WORLD WAR FOCUSES OBSESSIVELY ON THE ROLE OF ETHNIC MINORITIES IN THE CONFLICT, EVERY EU BUREAUCRAT STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EUROPEAN INTEGRATION AS A MEANS OF OVERCOMING DANGEROUS NATIONALIST SENTIMENTS…
The supreme irony is that we fought in 1940 to defend our national independence from German aggression, yet almost 70 years later we are now subsumed within a German-dominated continental bureaucracy.
I recently spoke to a D-Day veteran from the West Midlands. With anger and regret, he told me that HE DID NOT FIGHT IN ORDER TO END UP AS AN ALIEN IN HIS OWN COUNTRY. Even more insulting, he said, was BEING TOLD BY POLITICIANS THAT THE DESTRUCTION OF HIS SOCIETY WAS THE IDEAL FOR WHICH HE HAD GONE INTO BATTLE.”
Who is at war with the British people now, ladies and gentlemen?
Whose side would Bill Millington be on now, do you reckon?
Would he be thinking, like the D-Day veteran from the West Midlands, that he had fought so selflessly just "to end up an alien in his own country"? Would he too be insulted by those politicians who assured the nation that "the destruction his society was the ideal for which he had gone into battle"?
I think we all know the answers to these questions, with exception perhaps of the dumbed-down and the drugged up.
Do you never wonder why the bad guys drugged us up and dumbed us down? Oh, yes, ladies and gentlemen, THEY are at war with us alright. There aren't very many who aren't aware of this now.
Trouble is, where once the Bill Millingtons were in the majority, nowadays they're thin on the ground.
That's why precious little gets said.
And nothing gets done.
“Labour came to power 12 years ago promising a new dawn for our country. Instead THEY HAVE PLUNGED BRITAIN INTO A DARKENING NIGHTMARE OF ECONOMIC COLLAPSE, MASS UNEMPLOYMENT, SOCIAL DIVISION AND UNPRECEDENTED DEBTS...
With unemployment approaching 2.5million, around one in five of those aged under 25 are now on the dole. HALF OF ALL THE JOBS LOST OVER THE PAST YEAR HAVE BEEN THOSE OF YOUNGSTERS, A TERRIBLE INDICTMENT OF LABOUR’S POLICIES. When he was in opposition in the Nineties, Gordon Brown constantly berated the Tory Government for its failure to improve the job prospects of young people... Yet, THROUGH HIS MIX OF LEFT-WING IDEOLOGY AND ECONOMIC MISMANAGEMENT HE HAS CREATED A MUCH BIGGER LOST GENERATION. YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT IS A THIRD HIGHER TODAY THAN IT WAS WHEN LABOUR TOOK OFFICE IN 1997...
Labour’s own policies are directly responsible for this shameful betrayal of the young. Standards of achievement in the education system are a national disgrace. Continual grade inflation cannot hide the reality that 20 PER CENT OF PRIMARY SCHOOL-LEAVERS ARE FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE AND INNUMERATE, WHILE 40 PER CENT OF THEM LACK BASIC SKILLS...
Extra funding is worthless because of THE EDUCATIONAL DOGMA THAT CONTINUES TO PREVAIL, A PREFERENCE FOR MARXIST SOCIAL ENGINEERING AND MULTICULTURALISM OVER GAINING KNOWLEDGE.The dumbing down of exams means that QUALIFICATIONS SUCH AS GSCES AND A-LEVELS ARE INCREASINGLY DESPISED BY EMPLOYERS. THE SAME IS TRUE OF UNIVERSITY DEGREES...
LABOUR’S FIXATION WITH MASS IMMIGRATION has grotesquely distorted the jobs market in two ways. First, RATHER THAN PROVIDE PROPER SKILLS TRAINING THROUGH APPRENTICESHIPS AND COURSES THAT OUR COUNTRY REALLY NEEDS, THE GOVERNMENT HAS ENCOURAGED EMPLOYERS TO IMPORT STAFF FROM OVERSEAS BY DISHING OUT WORK PERMITS LIKE CONFETTI.
Second, at the lower end of earning scale, YOUNG WORKING-CLASS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN EXCLUDED FROM JOBS BY THE VAST INFLUX OF IMMIGRANTS. It is an absolute scandal that over the past five years 90 PER CENT OF THE NEW JOBS IN THE ECONOMY HAVE GONE TO MIGRANTS, WHILE EVEN IN A TIME OF RISING UNEMPLOYMENT FOREIGNERS ARE STILL ARRIVING HERE AT A RATE OF 500,000 A YEAR.” (Daily Express - 14 August 2009)
In the 3 August 2009 edition of The Daily Express, Leo McKinstry denounced New Labour for having "presided over the wilful collapse of our borders and THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR BRITISH IDENTITY.”
“OUR ONCE WELL-ORDERED, COHESIVE NATION HAS BEEN TURNED INTO AN OVERCROWDED LAND FULL OF DISPARATE CULTURES. As the influx of foreigners continues at an unprecedented rate, MANY BRITONS INCREASINGLY FEEL LIKE ALIENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY…
LABOUR’S OBSESSION WITH DIVERSITY MEANS THAT OUR CIVIC INSTITUTIONS HAVE TRADUCED OUR HISTORY, SMASHED OUR TRADITIONS AND TREATED OUR INSTINCTIVE NATIONAL PRIDE AS A DANGEROUS FORM OF RACISM… Labour’s stance on immigration can now be seen as a gigantic lie. We were told that a mass influx of foreigners, currently running at over 500,000 a year, would be the engine of economic prosperity. The opposite is true. THE GREATER THE LEVELS OF MASS MIGRATION, THE DEEPER WE SINK INTO ECONOMIC MISERY. OUR PUBLIC SERVICES ARE BUCKLING UNDER THE STRAIN OF OVER-CROWDING, OUR WELFARE SYSTEM HAS BECOME HOPELESSLY UNAFFORDABLE.
The idea that all migrants come here to work hard is just a myth. In fact MIGRANTS ARE FAR MORE LIKELY THAN BRITISH PEOPLE TO BE UNEMPLOYED, IN RECEIPT OF BENEFITS OR HOUSED IN STATE-FUNDED ACCOMMODATION. MEANWHILE OUR SOCIETY IS NOW BESET BY EXTREMISM, BARBARIC VIOLENCE, ETHNIC TENSIONS AND SUPERSTITION.
But for Labour, this is not a badge of shame. MASS IMMIGRATION HAS ACHIEVED ITS GOAL. (The) PARTY HAS SUCCEEDED IN RUINING OUR ONCE GENTLE, UNITED LAND."
“NEVER BEFORE HAS THE POLITICAL CLASS OF THIS COUNTRY BEEN HELD IN SUCH UNIVERSAL CONTEMPT… Brimming with defiance many MPs have declared that their bloated expenses were ‘within the rules’, ignoring the reality that THEY WERE THE ONES WHO MADE THE RULES. Others have blamed ‘the system’ AS IF THEY WERE SOMEHOW FORCED AGAINST THEIR WILL TO DEFRAUD THE TAXPAYER…
Despite the SICKENING PROPERTY FIDDLES by the likes of ED BALLS, HAZEL BLEARS AND GEOFF HOON, not one member of the Cabinet has been sacked, nor has any Labour MP been de selected…The searchlight of truth has EXPOSED THE ROTTEN CORE IN OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM. FOR TOO LONG OUR RULERS HAVE PATRONISED, BULLIED AND DECEIVED US WHILE WRECKING OUR COUNTRY... Voters are incensed by a gang of AMBITIOUS CAREERISTS WHO APPEAR TO HAVE NEITHER PATRIOTISM NOR ANY ETHIC OF PUBLIC SERVICE...
OUR POLITICIANS HAVE PRESIDED OVER THE DRASTIC DECLINE IN OUR ECONOMY, LEADING TO PAY CUTS, MASS UNEMPLOYMENT AND SPIRALLING REPOSSESSIONS…The Commons’ abuses are symbolic of the way OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM HAS BROKEN DOWN. WE NO LONGER HAVE A FUNCTIONING DEMOCRACY. Instead WE HAVE RULE BY A DIRTY CABAL, headed by an unelected Prime minister, WHICH FOISTS ITS DESTRUCTIVE IDEOLOGY ON THE COUNTRY AGAINST THE WILL OF THE VAST MAJORITY.
OUR INDEPENDENCE HAS BEEN DESTROYED AND OUR SOCIAL FABRIC TRANSFORMED WITHOUT ANY OF US HAVING ANY SAY. WE WERE NEVER GIVEN A VOTE AS TO WHETHER WE WANTED BRITAIN TO BECOME A REGION OF A NEW POLITICAL ENTITY CALLED THE EU, WITH 80 PER CENT OF OUR LAWS DICTATED BY BRUSSELS.
POLITICIANS IGNORED THEIR PLEDGES TO GIVE US A REFERENDUM ON THE EU CONSTITUTION.THE PUBLIC WASN’T ALLOWED A VOTE ON MASS IMMIGRATION. THE CREATION OF A MULTI-CULTURAL SOCIETY WAS IMPOSED USING PROPAGANDA, LIES AND INSTITUTIONALISED OPPRESSION. THOSE WHO OBJECTED WERE OSTRACISED AS RACISTS, while the prime duty of key public services became CELEBRATION OF DIVERSITY NOT DELIVERY OF SERVICES.” (Daily Express - 18 May 2009)
“Equality is supposed to be the guiding principle of the Labour Party. Ministers boast of their commitment to social justice and their determination to make Britain a ‘fairer’ society. The centrepiece of the Government’s legislative programme is the Equalities Bill, which Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman claims will ‘root out discrimination‘ and ‘blinkered prejudice’. In truth THE PREJUDICE LIES WITH LABOUR. The Government’s social agenda has nothing to do with genuine equality. Instead IT AMOUNTS TO A FORM OF IDEOLOGICAL WARFARE AGAINST THE INDIGENOUS POPULATION OF OUR COUNTRY. Obsessed with multiculturalism and notions of victimhood LABOUR SEEKS TO DIVIDE BRITAIN ALONG THE LINES OF CLASS, RACE AND GENDER. Far from promoting equal opportunities, GORDON BROWN’S ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO CREATE A SOCIETY WHERE CERTAIN MINORITIES ARE FAVOURED BY THE STATE because of their perceived victim status.
This is the nightmare world behind Harman’s declaration that through her Bill SHE AIMS TO BUILD ‘A NEW SOCIAL ORDER‘. In the name of combating racism or sexism, INSTITUTIONALISED BIAS AGAINST WHITE MEN WILL BECOME RAMPANT. SOCIAL ENGINEERING WILL BE IMPLEMENTED ON AN UNPRECEDENTED SCALE. Every issue of public policy will be viewed through the prism of so-called ‘diversity‘.
EMPLOYERS WILL BE ORDERED TO DISCRIMINATE IN FAVOUR OF ETHNIC MINORITIES, women, GAYS and even people from supposedly disadvantaged regions, such as the North of England. EVERY OFFICE, CLUB AND PUB WILL BE REQUIRED TO PARADE THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE NEW OFFICIAL CREED OF THE STATE…
The commission’s leadership is in the hands of TREVOR PHILLIPS, THE £110,000-A-YEAR CHAIRMAN AND KEY LABOUR SUPPORTER… His commission is key to Harman’s social revolution. HIS IS THE OUTFIT THAT HAS THE POWER TO BULLY COMPANIES AND HARASS INDIVIDUALS…
Labour’s misnamed ‘equality’ agenda is a disaster for the cohesion of Britain. It stifles freedom, imposes new burdens on the taxpayer, undermines enterprise and encourages social division. IT LEADS TO THE MOST GROTESQUE DOUBLE STANDARDS. This can be seen in the FAVOURITISM TOWARDS GYPSIES OR THE CRAVEN APPEASEMENT OF RADICAL ISLAMISTS WHILE LAW-ABIDING TAXPAYERS ARE BRUTALLY DEALT WITH IF THEY HAPPEN TO PUT THEIR RUBBISH OUT ON THE WRONG DAY.
In George Orwell’s 1984 the Big Brother state adopted a form of language known as ‘doublespeak’ where an official slogan could embody two contradictory elements. ‘Slavery is freedom’ was one such pronouncement. This has obviously served as the inspiration for New Labour. With the box-ticking, hectoring Equalities Commission in the role of Big Brother we now learn that ‘EQUALITY IS DISCRIMINATION’.” (Daily Express - 20 July 2009)
“Today, no fewer than 35 Labour politicians sit around the Cabinet table in Gordon Brown’s Government. Few of them could be trusted to run an ice-cream stall. THE BLOATED SIZE OF BROWN’S CABINET IS AN INDICATOR OF GROWING INFLUENCE OF THE PROFESSIONAL POLITICAL CLASS IN MODERN BRITAIN. OUR LIVES ARE NOW INCREASINGLY DOMINATED BY AN ARMY OF OVERPAID, SELF-IMPORTANT PARTY HACKS, WHO SEEK TO JUSTIFY THEIR EXISTENCES WITH ENDLESS BOSSY INTERVENTIONS, POINTLESS ATTENTION-SEEKING ANTICS AND REGULATIONS.
Thomas Jefferson, the great American statesman and philosopher, once described politicians as ‘PARASITES ON THE LABOUR ON THE INDUSTRIOUS‘. THOSE WORDS CERTAINLY APPLY TO BROWN’S BRITAIN, WHERE THE UK GOVERNMENT HAS ERECTED A VAST POLITICAL BUREAUCRACY WHICH COSTS US A FORTUNE AND PARALYSES THE EFFECTIVE RUNNING OF THE COUNTRY.
New research by the BBC shows that THERE ARE 30,000 PAID POLITICIANS HERE, COMPARED TO JUST 3000 IN 1980. The huge increase is a direct result of Labour measures, such as the introduction of full-time, salaried local councillors, the creation of the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly, and an expansion in the number of advisers at all levels. THE TOTAL BILL FOR ALL THIS SUBSIDISED POLITICAL CAREERISM NOW REACHES OVER £500MILLION.
Our MPs and Ministers cost at least £167million, while municipal representatives impose a burden on taxpayers of some £254million. More money is swallowed up by the expensive ranks of MSPs, MEPs and peers.
It says something about the warped priorities of New Labour that BRITAIN CURRENTLY HAS MORE PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS THAN AMBULANCE STAFF.” (Daily Express - 15 July 2009)
“LABOUR’S VANITY HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY LETHAL FOR BRITISH TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN. HUNDREDS MORE BRAVE YOUNG MEN ARE BEING SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR OF GORDON BROWN’S SOCIALIST ARROGANCE. IT IS AN OUTRAGE THAT OUR SOLDIERS SHOULD BE TREATED AS NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL FODDER BY A GANG OF SLEAZY, UNPATRIOTIC LEFT-WING MEDIOCRITIES WHO HAVE NO CONCEPT OF BRITAIN’S NATIONAL INTEREST.
The war in Aghanistan has lost all sense of purpose. It has descended into a gruesome form of gesture politics, devoid of any realistic military objective.
DESPERATE TO CURRY FAVOUR WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA’S US ADMINISTRATION AND TOO COWARDLY TO ADMIT THE FAILURE OF ITS FLAWED STRATEGY, BROWN’S REGIME PRESIDES OVER A MOUNTING DEATH TOLL WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO GIVE ANY COHERENT EXPLANATION FOR THE PRESENCE OF OUR ARMED FORCED IN THIS TRIBAL WASTELAND…
The total number of deaths from British operations in Afghanistan now stands at 184, even higher than in the disastrous operation in Iraq. IF THESE HEROES HAD DIED IN DEFENCE OF BRITAIN, THEIR LOSS WOULD BE MORE BEARABLE. BUT THE TRAGEDY IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN KILLED IN A CONFLICT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR COUNTRY.
WHAT IS JUST AS SICKENING IS THAT LABOUR MINISTERS HAVE NOT ONE OUNCE OF THE COURAGE, DECENCY, PATRIOTISM OR HONOUR EXHIBITED BY THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN SENT TO THEIR DEATHS IN THIS POINTLESS CONFLICT. BROWN HIMSELF IS PERHAPS THE MOST COWARDLY FIGURE EVER TO ENTER DOWNING STREET…
IT IS NONSENSE TO PRETEND THAT THE FIGHT AGAINST ISLAMIC TERRORISM IN BRITAIN IS PREDICATED ON SUCCESS IN THE AFGHAN WAR… ACROSS THE WORLD, BRITAIN IS NOW RECOGNISED BY SECURITY AGENCIES AS A HOTBED OF DANGEROUS ISLAMIC RADICALISM…
OUR TROOPS ARE DENIED THE HELICOPTERS, EQUIPMENT AND NUMBERS THEY NEED TO BE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE OF TREASURY CUT-BACKS, YET TAXPAYERS’ CASH IS LAVISHED ON GRANTS FOR MUSLIM COMMUNITY GROUPS IN A CRAVEN BID TO APPEASE HARDLINERS…
BROWN IS SPILLING THE GUTS OF BRAVE BRITISH TROOPS IN A MEANINGLESS, MISMANAGED OPERATION FOR NOTHING BUT HIS PATHETIC SELF-IMPORTANCE.” (Daily Express - 13 July 2009)
"As the prospect of a general election grows nearer MINISTERS ARE NOW INTERESTED ONLY IN DECEIVING THE PUBLIC, not in governing the country. DISHONESTY RUNS THROUGH EVERY AREA OF POLICY from public expenditure cuts to the failure to hold a referendum on the EU treaty.
But NEW DEPTHS OF MENDACITY HAVE BEEN PLUMBED THIS WEEK WITH GORDON BROWN’S PROMISE TO GIVE BRITISH FAMILIES PREFERENCE IN STATE-FUNDED HOUSING rather than allow immigrants to have priority. THIS PLEDGE COULD NOT BE MORE HOLLOW OR UNTRUTHFUL. THE GOVERNMENT HAS ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF IMPLEMENTING SUCH A MEASURE.
For a start this move would be unlawful under a raft of legislation imposed by the Labour Government, such as the 1998 human Rights Act or the 2000 Race Discrimination Act, WHICH STATUTORILY ENSHRINE THE SOCIALISTS’ CONTEMPT FOR THE INDIGENOUS POPULATION OF BRITAIN.
Moreover HARRIET HARMAN’S NEW ‘EQUALITY’ BILL REQUIRES PUBLIC BODIES TO PRACTISE OVERT DISCRIMINATION IN FAVOUR OF ETHNIC MINORITIES to overcome ‘social disadvantage.’ THE IDEA THAT ANY COUNCIL OR HOUSING ASSOCIATION IS SUDDENLY ABOUT TO START FAVOURING LOCALS OVER MIGRANTS IS ABSURD.
DURING 12 YEARS OF LABOUR RULE THE CULTURE OF BIAS TOWARDS THE NON-BRITISH HAS BEEN DEEPLY EMBEDDED ACROSS THE PUBLIC SECTOR. BROWN’S PROMISE OF ‘BRITISH HOMES FOR BRITISH FAMILIES’ IS AS MEANINGLESS AS HIS CLAIM TO BE CREATING ‘BRITISH JOBS FOR BRITISH WORKERS‘.
On another level THE GOVERNMENT’S NEW RHETORIC EXPOSES THE BARE-FACED LIES THAT HAVE ENVELOPED STATE HOUSING POLICY SINCE 1997. For years, contrary to all evidence, minsters have arrogantly dismissed accusations that the allocation of housing was biased towards migrants. Indeed they went so far as to pretend that mass immigration has had no impact at all on housing. SUCH CHARGES, THEY SAID, WERE RACIST MYTHS CONJURED UP BY RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS. Yet the truth is of course that UNDER BROWN AND BLAIR, BRITISH-BORN FAMILIES HAVE BEEN RUTHLESSLY MARGINALISED BY A HOUSING SYSTEM THAT IS LOADED AGAINST THEM. It is the height of illogicality to argue, for instance, that the import of at least 500,000 foreigners every year has no effect on the demand for housing. These people are not sleeping in fields or on pavements so THEIR PRESENCE HERE IS BOUND TO HAVE A DRAMATIC IMPACT ON THE HOUSING STOCK, REDUCING THE SUPPLY OF PUBLIC HOUSING AND HEIGHTENING PRESSURES IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR.
Equally fallacious is the pretence that hardly any social housing goes to newcomers. In 2007 the Government claimed that only one per cent of taxpayer-funded homes are handed to immigrants. THIS WAS A BLATANT LIE. ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL STATISTICS PUBLISHED IN APRIL 2008, ONE-IN-NINE, MORE THAN 11 PER CENT, OF ALL SUBSIDISED HOMES ACROSS BRITAIN ARE OCCUPIED BY MIGRANTS.
LABOUR AND POLITICALLY CORRECT OFFICIALS USE ALL SORTS OF OTHER DEVICES TO DECEIVE THE BRITISH PUBLIC OVER THE TRUE NATURE OF THEIR TREACHERY. So they are fond of telling us that asylum seekers are ‘not eligible’ for council housing but that statement is just semantics. In truth ASYLUM SEEKERS ARE GIVEN TAXPAYER-FUNDED ACCOMMODATION BY THE NATIONAL ASYLUM SUPPORT SERVICE AND THE MOMENT THEIR CLAIM IS ACCEPTED THEY ARE ENTITLED TO THE FULL RAFT OF STATE BENEFITS.
Another favourite trick is to put emphasis on the supposedly limited rights of foreign nationals to state accommodation. But again this ignores the fact that, IN ITS OBSESSION WITH PROMOTING MULTI-CULTURAL DIVERSITY, THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT NOW DISHES OUT BRITISH PASSPORTS LIKE CONFETTI. MORE THAN 160,000 MIGRANTS WERE GRANTED FULL BRITISH CITIZENSHIP LAST YEAR, MAKING THEM FULLY ELIGIBLE FOR SOCIAL HOUSING, WHILE IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ON CURRENT TRENDS MORE THAN 220,000 PEOPLE WILL GAIN SUCH CITIZENSHIP IN 2009.
Taking the sector as a whole, it is untenable to argue that recent migrants do not do better than longstanding British families. Only last year research by Channel 4 – hardly a reactionary outfit – found that 80 PER CENT OF SOMALIS LIVE IN SOCIAL HOUSING, 49 PER CENT OF TURKS AND 41 OF BANGLADESHIS, COMPARED TO JUST 17 PER CENT OF BRITISH-BORN PEOPLE.
What is really sickening is how THE LABOUR PARTY IS SO DETERMINED TO BETRAY AND MISLEAD THE BRITISH PEOPLE. IDEOLOGICAL SOCIALISTS ARE ALMOST PSYCHOTIC IN THEIR DETERMINATION TO UPHOLD THE INTERESTS OF FOREIGNERS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED NOTHING TO OUR COUNTRY, AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF THE INDIGENOUS WORKING-CLASS. I saw this myself when I was a Labour councillor in Islington in the early Nineties. In my ward THE HOUSING DEPARTMENT HAD DECIDED THAT A CERTAIN DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE RESERVED MAINLY FOR REFUGEES. AT ONE PARTY MEETING, WHEN SOME WORKING-CLASS MEMBERS JUSTIFIABLY OBJECTED TO THIS ON THE GROUNDS THAT LOCAL PEOPLE WERE BEING EXCLUDED, THEY WERE HOWLED DOWN AS ‘RACISTS’ BY MIDDLE-CLASS LABOUR MEMBERS WHO OWNED THEIR OWN PROPERTIES.
The same pattern can be seen at a national level with THE GOVERNMENT ALTERNATING BETWEEN DECEITFUL PROPAGANDA AND CRUDE BULLYING OVER THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION…
THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT’S CAPACITY FOR HYPOCRISY IS AS GREAT AS ITS LACK OF ANY PATRIOTISM. BUT RUINOUS TREACHERY CANNOT BE COVERED UP WITH YET MORE DECEIT.” (Daily Express - 2 July 2009)
As I keep telling you, ladies and gentlemen, THEY are at war with us.
Indeed, THEY have been at war with us for a very long time now. More and more are realising this, including, thank goodness, the odd former Labour councillor and a good few media darlings. Fortunately for the rest of us, some of these are now daring to voice these realisations.
“The grotesquely mismanaged asylum system created by the Labour Government is an affront to justice. RIDDLED WITH ABUSES, IT PROVIDES BOTH LUCRATIVE OPPORTUNITIES TO GREEDY LAWYERS AND A POLITICAL CAUSE FOR LEFT-WING ZEALOTS WHO LOATHE THEIR OWN COUNTRY. But for the rest of us, the asylum racket means HIGHER TAXES, A GREATER STRAIN ON PUBLIC SERVICES AND THE ACCELERATING BREAKDOWN IN SOCIAL COHESION…
THE WHOLE ASYLUM SYSTEM HAS BECOME SYNONYMOUS WITH FRAUD, INCOMPETENCE AND CONTEMPT FOR THE RIGHTS OF BRITISH CITIZENS. The vast majority of so-called asylum seekers are not genuine refugees at all, but ARE SIMPLY ECONOMIC MIGRANTS SEEKING A BETTER LIFE HERE, PARTICULARLY BY EXPLOITING OUR LUDICROUSLY GENEROUS WELFARE SYSTEM.
So enfeebled is the British state that JUST 10 PER CENT OF FAILED ASYLUM SEEKERS ARE EVER DEPORTED WHEN THEIR CLAIMS ARE REJECTED.
According to the London School of Economics, there are more than 500,000 bogus refugees living in Britain, a population bigger than most of our major cities. Fearful of public anger on the asylum issue, Labour has tried to talk tough in recent years. But Ministerial words have just been hollow rhetoric. In fact, ASYLUM CLAIMS ARE UP BY 27 PER CENT THIS YEAR, while the backlog caused by unresolved cases and missing files is getting larger than ever.
All this represents a huge burden to the taxpayer.
THE TOTAL COST OF HOME OFFICE SUPPORT FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS IS RUNNING AT MORE THAN £500 MILLION-A-YEAR AND OVER THE LAST EIGHT YEARS THE GOVERNMENT HAS SPENT NO LESS THAN £6.6 BILLION ON SUCH ASSISTANCE...
The Government could dramatically reform the asylum system tomorrow if it wanted. After all, THIS IS AN ADMINISTRATION THAT IS ABLE TO BAN ALL SMOKING IN PUBLIC PLACES, CARPET THE COUNTRY IN SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS, AND GO TO WAR IN TWO DISTANT COUNTRIES. THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE ARE HUGE FINANCIAL AND IDEOLOGICAL VESTED INTERESTS BEHIND MAINTAINING THE CURRENT ASYLUM SHAMBLES. ON ONE HAND, LAWYERS CAN MAKE A FORTUNE FROM STRINGING OUT CASES THROUGH APPEALS AND JUDICIAL REVIEWS. Last year the legal aid bill for asylum and immigration cases was over £77 million.
PRESSURE GROUPS DO EQUALLY WELL OUT OF THE RACKET. SINCE ITS CREATION, THE NATIONAL LOTTERY HAS HANDED OVER £75 MILLION TO ASYLUM CAUSES, SUCH AS THE £400,000 GRANT LAST DECEMBER TO THE NORTH OF ENGLAND REFUGEE SERVICE TO HELP ASYLUM SEEKERS CLAIM BENEFITS.
JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, THE ASYLUM MESS IS ANOTHER PART OF THE CIVIC ORDER’S DRIVE TO DESTROY OUR NATIONHOOD. THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR TRADITIONAL BRITISH IDENTITY THROUGH THE PROMOTION OF ASYLUM AND MASS IMMIGRATION HAS BEEN A FUNDAMENTAL THEME OF SOCIALISM OVER THE LAST TWELVE YEARS. THE CHAOS IS NOT A MISTAKE. IT IS A DELIBERATE POLICY AIMED AT TRANSFORMING OUR SOCIETY.” (Daily Express - 25 June 2009)
“Since the Sixties, the post-war fear of Germany has been superseded by A LEFT-WING, NEO-MARXIST HATRED FOR ANY EXPRESSION OF NATIONAL IDENTITY. Like the Soviet Union, OUR RULERS IN BRUSSELS WANT ABSOLUTE SUBSERVIENCE. AT A POLITICAL LEVEL THIS MEANS BREAKING UP NATIONS INTO REGIONS AND REDUCING NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS TO THE STATUS OF MUNICIPALITIES.
At the same time, the EU itself is now taking on the trappings of nationhood, with its own Parliament, laws, currency, executive, flag and, if Lisbon is ratified, Presidency and Foreign Office. On a demographic level, THE POPULATIONS OF EUROPE HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY TRANSFORMED BY MASS IMMIGRATION AND THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR BORDERS.
THE NATION STATE IS THE GREATEST VEHICLE FOR UPHOLDING DEMOCRACY YET DEVISED BY MAN. UNDER THE EU’S TYRANNY, BOTH NATIONHOOD AND DEMOCRACY ARE NOW DYING. We have to escape the clutches of Brussels before it is too late.” (Daily Express - 22 June 2009)
"After the turmoil of recent weeks the Labour Party looks certain to suffer a crushing defeat at the next general election. Buffeted by recession, tainted by scandal and torn apart by splits, Gordon Brown’s Government has sunk to unprecedented levels of unpopularity.
At the recent European elections, LABOUR RECEIVED JUST 15 PER CENT OF THE VOTE. THE PARTY HAS ALMOST BEEN DRIVEN OUT OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT, HOLDING NOT A SINGLE COUNTY COUNCIL ACROSS ENGLAND...
UNDER BROWN’S LEADERSHIP, THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST DISHONEST, SLEAZY, UNDEMOCRATIC, AND RUTHLESS IN BRITISH HISTORY…
But that is why Labour remains so dangerous. A REGIME THAT ENCOURAGES THE ARREST OF AN OPPOSITION MP, CREATES THE WORLD’S LARGEST DATABASE TO SPY ON ITS PEOPLE AND GOES TO WAR ON THE BASIS OF LIES WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO CLING TO POWER.
Gordon Brown may be a woeful Prime Minister, RIGHTLY DESPISED FOR HIS INCOMPETENCE, MENDACITY, COWARDICE AND BLUSTER but the fact that he is also an aggressive bully makes him a formidable campaigner. He is a tribal chieftain rather than a national statesman, viewing everything through the prism of NARROW PARTY ADVANTAGE.
For all his blather about his ‘Presbyterian conscience’ HE IS UTTERLY DEVOID OF MORALITY. IN HIS DETERMINATION TO FURTHER HIS OWN CAUSE, HE WILL SPOUT ANY LIE, FIDDLE ANY STATISTIC AND SMEAR ANY OPPONENT.
Moreover, he has at his side a number of equally hard-nosed colleagues led by Lord Mandelson and the arrogant Ed Balls, who will fight for Labour in the dirtiest fashion. Over the next year, the Brown Government will exploit office for partisan ends. Even as unemployment continues to rise there will be endless talk of an economic recovery, with Brown hailed by his supporters as a global saviour.
THE REALITY THAT LABOUR HAS DESTROYED OUR PUBLIC FINANCES WILL BE IGNORED. Instead, we will hear the constant mantra of ‘Labour investment versus Tory cuts’. Lies about threats to ‘schools and hospitals’ will be repeated. The fact that Labour will be forced to cut spending because of the present colossal levels of borrowing will be evaded in A VAST EXERCISE IN POLITICAL DECEIT.
LABOUR WILL BE HELPED IN THIS TASK BY A DELUGE OF GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA designed to create a feel-good mood. THE STATE IS BY FAR THE COUNTRY’S BIGGEST ADVERTISER, SPENDING MORE THAN £400MILLION A YEAR ON SPIN. OVER THE NEXT 12 MONTHS WHITEHALL DEPARTMENTS AND QUANGOS WILL PRODUCE A BARRAGE OF PRO-GOVERNMENT PUBLICITY dressed up as public information, on everything from welfare handouts to policing, cultural diversity to economic regeneration.
Much of the propaganda and fraudulent language about ‘cuts’ will be aimed at LABOUR’S THREE KEY BLOCS OF VOTERS: BENEFIT CLAIMANTS, PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS AND ETHNIC MINORITIES.
OVER THE PAST 12 YEARS LABOUR HAS INDULGED IN SOCIAL ENGINEERING ON AN EPIC SCALE, massively widening the scope of the welfare system, expanding the public sector workforce and PROMOTING IMMIGRATION AT A RATE OF 600,000 NEW ARRIVALS A YEAR. CRUDE POLITICAL MOTIVATION HAS PLAYED A KEY PART IN THIS DRIVE TO TRANSFORM OUR SOCIETY, CREATING AN ELECTORATE THAT IS INCREASINGLY DEPENDENT ON THE GOVERNMENT.
Other factors will also help Labour. SPENDING ON CAPITAL PROJECTS WILL BE DIRECTED AT MARGINAL SEATS. THE OVERTLY POLITICISED CIVIL SERVICE WILL COLLUDE IN LABOUR’S PARTISAN INITIATIVES. TRADE UNION FUNDS WILL BE POURED INTO THE KEY SEATS. MORE BLATANT CORRUPTION WILL BE SEEN IN THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF POSTAL VOTING IN LABOUR AREAS. INDEED, THE EASE WITH WHICH POSTAL VOTES CAN BE MANIPULATED BY PARTY AGENTS IS WHY LABOUR WAS KEEN TO IMPOSE THEM.
For too many doctrinaire socialists the ends always justify the means. Brown is a classic example of this trait. Gripped by his obsessive desire to retain office HE IS WILLING TO WRECK OUR PUBLIC FINANCES, TRASH OUR DEMOCRACY, DESTROY OUR BORDERS AND LIE TO THE ELECTORATE.” (Daily Express - 15 June 2009)
“Yesterday it emerged that Frank Cook, the Labour MP for Stockton, claimed £5 in expenses for a donation he made during a church service to commemorate the Battle of Britain. THE ENTIRE POLITICAL CLASS ACROSS ALL THREE MAJOR PARTIES APPEARS TO HAVE THE ETHICAL STANDARDS OF A SWARM OF SEWER RATS.
Even David Cameron, who has been sitting on his moral high horse in recent weeks, has been drawn into the expenses scandal with reports that he took out a large mortgage, partly funded by the taxpayer, on a £650,000 house in Oxfordshire just months before he paid off the mortgage on his London home…
WESTMINSTER HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A CESSPIT, ITS FOUL STENCH POLLUTING THE WHOLE POLITICAL SYSTEM. In an interview with the BBC at the weekend, Gordon Brown had the nerve to say that that the expenses scandal ‘offends my Presbyterian conscience’. HIS HYPOCRISY IS QUITE MIND-BLOWING. FOR IT IS BROWN WHO HAS PRESIDED OVER THE COLLAPSE OF INTEGRITY IN BRITISH POLITICS, HEAVILY CONTRIBUTING TO THIS BREAKDOWN WITH HIS OWN BULLYING PARTISANSHIP, DIRTY TRICKS AND CHARACTER ASSASSINATION.” (Daily Express - 1 June 2009)
"The House of Commons now sits without a shred of moral authority. After the exposure of endemic corruption at Westminster, stretching all the way to the heart of the Cabinet, OUR PRESENT BUNCH OF SELF-SERVING POLITICIANS HAS LOST ANY RIGHT TO PASS MORE LAWS OR COLLECT MORE TAXES.The torrent of revelations about MPs’ serial abuse of our money has shown that THE CURRENT PARLIAMENT IS ROTTEN TO THE CORE...
THE TRADITIONAL ETHIC OF PUBLIC SERVICE HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE NEW CREED OF FLEECING THE PUBLIC, as self-enrichment becomes the key political activity of far too many members. So widespread is this culture of grubby avarice that MPS EXPECT TAXPAYERS TO UNDERWRITE their purchase of chocolate, Christmas trees, soft furnishings, televisions, and even lavatory seats…
Most outrageous of all is the fraudulent practice known as ‘flipping’, where MPS PERSISTENTLY CHANGE THE DESIGNATION OF THEIR SECOND HOME IN ORDER TO EXPLOIT ALLOWANCES TO THE HILT AND AVOID PAYING CAPITAL GAINS TAX...
The hypocrisy of the political class is breathtaking. Ministers and Labour MPs lecture us about the requirement to hand over all our personal details to the State, telling us that if ‘you’ve done nothing to hide, you’ve nothing to fear’. Yet THEY FOUGHT FOR YEARS TO KEEP THESE CLAIMS SECRET and now, as the full extent of their venality becomes apparent, they bleat about invasion of privacy, even calling in the police to investigate the leak of this information to the press. WHAT POLICE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATING IS THE GROSS MISAPPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC FUNDS BY A GANG OF POLITICAL SHYSTERS...
AS IN THE OLD COMMUNIST REGIMES OF EASTERN EUROPE, THERE IS ONE LAW FOR THE PUBLIC AND ANOTHER FOR THE POLITICAL ELITE. In a recent speech, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears said she wanted to see 'fair rules that apply to everyone'... But such A SPIRIT OF FAIRNESS HAS BEEN ABSENT FROM OUR RULERS, including Ms Blears who in one year switched the designation of her second home three times and has claimed huge subsidies on several London flats.
Just as repulsive is the sense of entitlement that permeates the political class. Devoid of any sense of personal responsibility or respect for taxpayers’ money, MPs moan that all claims have been 'within the rules'. In many cases, this is untrue, since allowances are meant to be 'wholly and exclusively for performing parliamentary duties' - £20,000 for repairs to a south coast holiday home, as Luton Labour MP Margaret Moran claimed, certainly does not fall into that category. More importantly, it is the MPs who wrote the rules, with the intention of allowing maximum scope for fiddling.
In the wake of the expenses scandal, MPs have tried to spread the idea that they are 'poorly paid' and that heavy expense claims are a means of boosting their incomes. This will not wash. AT £64,000-A-YEAR, THE BASIC SALARY OF MPS IS HIGHER THAN THE EARNINGS OF 95 PER CENT OF THE POPULATION, WHILE THEY ALSO RECEIVE AT LEAST 21 WEEKS HOLIDAY AND A UNIQUELY GENEROUS PENSION.” (Daily Express - 11 May 2009)
"THE LONGER LABOUR REMAINS IN POWER THE MORE THE GOVERNMENT RESEMBLES A CORRUPT EASTERN EUROPEAN REGIME OF THE EIGHTIES. OUR ONCE FREE NATION IS BEING TURNED INTO THE PEOPLE’S SOCIALIST REPUBLIC OF BRITAIN, PRESIDED OVER BY A SINISTER POLITBURO WHICH WORSHIPS THE POWER OF THE STATE...
Driven by its INSTINCTIVE AUTHORITARIANISM Labour has been desperate to establish a National Identity Register for almost a decade. But the unpopularity of the system has meant that THE GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY PROCEED BY STEALTH, introducing identity cards on a limited geographical and voluntary basis at first, then gradually extending their use across the country until they can be made compulsory by 2012...
IN THE GRIM NEW WORLD CREATED BY LABOUR WE ARE ALL TO BE TREATED AS SUSPECTS BY THE AUTHORITIES. Allied to MASS SURVEILLANCE OF THE POPULATION, MONITORING OF ALL TELEPHONE CALLS, E-MAILS, INTERNET TRAFFIC AND THE POLITICISATION OF THE POLICE, the introduction of ID cards represents another milestone on our descent into SOCIALIST TOTALITARIANISM.
The most feeble argument put forward by supporters of ID cards is that ‘if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear’. In recent years people have been hounded by the State for failing to recycle their rubbish with sufficient vigour or privately expressing their opposition to gay marriage, while for the first time since the 17th century an opposition MP has been arrested for speaking out against the ruling party.
WE HAVE EVERYTHING TO FEAR FROM LABOUR. ID CARDS ARE ALL ABOUT CONTROL, NOT PROTECTING THE PUBLIC. THE BROWN REGIME HAS WRECKED THE ECONOMY AND NOW IT IS DESTROYING OUR LIBERTY." (Daily Express - 7 May 2009)
"Never has a piece of legislation been more badly misnamed than the so-called ‘Equalities’ Bill, introduced in Parliament last week by Labour’s Deputy Leader Harriet Harman. Far from promoting equal opportunities, Harman’s scheme will achieve the very opposite. IT WILL ADVANCE DIRECT RACIAL AND GENDER DISCRIMINATION BY THE BRITISH STATE, INSTITUTIONALISING BLATANT PREJUDICE AGAINST WHITE MEN.
THE ‘EQUALITIES’ BILL IS SOMETHING STRAIGHT OUT OF GEORGE ORWELL’S NOVEL 1984, which painted a terrifying vision of Britain under totalitarian socialist rule. In the book, the Big Brother state machine puts contradictory slogans such as ‘slavery is freedom’ or ‘war is peace’ at the heart of its propaganda. THIS 'DOUBLE-THINK' HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A POLITICAL REALITY BY HARMAN. THE CLAIM THAT ‘DISCRIMINATION IS EQUALITY’ COULD NOT BE MORE ORWELLIAN because the central purpose of her proposed legislation is to force employers to favour women and ethnic minorities in recruitment and promotion.
It might surprise some readers to know that I actually worked for Harriet Harman as Parliamentary aide in the early nineties, so I think I have some insight into her political character. In this Equalities Bill, I recognise so many of her traits. There is HER SIMPLISTIC OBSESSION WITH MULTICULTURAL DIVERSITY and a neo-Marxist brand of feminist victimhood, where ANY PROBLEMS FACED BY WOMEN OR BLACKS IN THE WORKPLACE CAN BE ENTIRELY BLAMED ON A NASTY, WHITE MALE POWER ELITE... IN ITS POLITICALLY CORRECT DOGMA, THE EQUALITIES BILL IS A KEY PART OF HER CAMPAIGN TO APPEAL TO LABOUR’S LEFT....
Harman explained the real spirit of the Bill at a left-wing gathering in January. IT WAS THE GOVERNMENT’S TASK, SHE SAID, TO PLAY ITS PART IN ‘FASHIONING A NEW SOCIAL ORDER’. THE PHRASE IS ONE USED BY SOCIALIST DICTATORS THROUGHOUT THE 20TH CENTURY, INCLUDING CHAIRMAN MAO AND POL POT.
Labour is so committed to this legislation because IT WILL MASSIVELY EXTEND THE POWER OF THE STATE. In a new climate of fear all too reminiscent of communist East Germany, firms deemed to be insufficiently enthusiastic about Labour’s ideology will have to undergo heavy-handed inspections. ‘We will shine a spotlight in every workplace,’ said Harman, in unmistakable tones of socialist menace.
Taxpayer-funded bureaucracy will expand remorselessly to carry out all the gender audits, diversity assessments, ethnic monitoring, action plans and training demanded by the legislation. It is a rich irony that Labour spent years wailing at the iniquities of apartheid South Africa yet HARMAN’S NEW BRITAIN WILL BE THE MOST RACIALLY OBSESSED COUNTRY IN THE WESTERN WORLD, WITH THE GOVERNMENT DEFINING CITIZENS BY THE COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN. THE CIVIL SERVICE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT WILL BE BRIMMING WITH EQUALITY ZEALOTS THRILLED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO THROW THEIR WEIGHT AROUND...
This kind of ideological bullying of private enterprise was first dreamt up by loony left-wing councils in the Eighties. Now, thanks to Harman, it is to become a key part of the governance of Britain...
THE MOST DISTURBING ELEMENT OF THIS LEGISLATION, THOUGH, IS THE PLAN TO PUSH EMPLOYERS TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WHITE MEN. This might be dressed up as ‘positive action’ for women and minorities but it is idiotic and unjust. The idea that we need racial and gender balance in every field is absurd. Do we really want half of all firefighters or prison officers, both of them physically demanding roles, to be women? Why do the equality neurotics never complain about all those sectors where women or minorities are over-represented, such as social work, teaching and medicine? ASTONISHINGLY 25 PER CENT OF ALL NHS CONSULTANTS AND 47 PER CENT OF ALL NHS REGISTRARS ARE FROM ETHNIC MINORITIES.
The answer is that REAL FAIRNESS IS AN IRRELEVANCE FOR LABOUR. THIS BILL, JUST LIKE THE PROMOTION OF MASS IMMIGRATION, IS PART OF THE GOVERNMENT’S IDEOLOGICALLY BIGOTED DRIVE TO TRANSFORM SOCIETY. TRADITION, MASCULINITY, SOCIAL COHESION, HERITAGE AND PATRIOTISM ARE ALL SOURCES OF SHAME IN LABOUR’S BRAVE NEW WORLD.” (Daily Express - 3 May 2009)
"A sense of menace hung in the crisp spring air. On almost every street there were groups of hardened youths, many wearing headscarves. A sullen look was in their eyes, an aggressive tone in their Arabic voices. But this intimidating scene was not from downtown Algiers. It could be found just a few miles from the white cliffs of the Kent coast, in the historic French port of Calais, where THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANTS GATHER WITH THE AIM OF CROSSING THE CHANNEL.
Just before Easter, my wife and I drove through the out-skirts of Calais. THE ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR WAS ALMOST PALPABLE, AS IF THE CITY WERE UNDER SIEGE.At one garage, where I stopped for petrol, a French-man nodded at a gang of north Africans standing nearby and said to me:
‘THEY’RE NOT REFUGEES. WHERE ARE THEIR WIVES? WHERE ARE THEIR CHILDREN? THEY JUST WANT ENGLISH MONEY’…
Calais has become a tragic symbol of BRITAIN’S DISASTROUS MIGRATION POLICIES, WHICH HAVE DONE INCALCULABLE DAMAGE TO OUR COUNTRY and brought misery to our nearest continental neighbour...
THE TOUGH YOUNG ARAB MEN ARE NOT FLEEING PERSECUTION. If they were, they would be only too relieved to settle in any European country offering them a haven. No, WHAT THEY REALLY WANT IS THE VAST ARRAY OF SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS, HOUSING AND SUPPORT THAT THE BRITISH STATE OFFERS. That is why so many flock to Calais, desperate to reach THE WELFARE HONEY-POT ACROSS THE CHANNEL.
Other European countries, including France, have strict rules about entitlement to handouts and accommodation but LABOUR SHOWS MORE GENEROSITY TOWARDS FOREIGNERS THAN TOWARDS ITS OWN PEOPLE. The right to welfare used to be related to British citizenship and contributions towards society but that SPIRIT OF MORAL JUSTICE HAS EVAPORATED UNDER BLAIR AND BROWN. IMMIGRANTS ARE NOW AT THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE, OFTEN ENJOYING PRIORITY OVER PEOPLE WHO HAVE LIVED AND WORKED IN BRITAIN ALL THEIR LIVES...
The absurd extravagance of our welfare system and the laxity of our borders were high-lighted recently by the case of an Iraqi Kurdish family headed by Faradh Maruj. Claiming to be in flight from Islamic fundamentalists, they travelled right through continental Europe until they reached Calais, where the lorry carrying them was waved through by officials after Mr Maruj uttered the single word ‘family’. ON THEIR ARRIVAL IN BRITAIN, THEY WERE GIVEN A HOME IN BIRMINGHAM AND £170 A WEEK IN BENEFITS, MORE THAN MOST PENSIONERS RECEIVE.
No matter how illegal their status, immigrants know that the British Government lacks the will to deport them. BENT ON CREATING A MULTI-CULTURAL SOCIETY, MINISTERS REGARD THE TIDAL WAVE OF MIGRANTS AS A WELCOME ALLY IN THEIR PROJECT OF DESTROYING THE TRADITIONAL IDENTITY OF OUR COUNTRY...
THE GOVERNMENT HAS PRESIDED OVER THE CREATION OF A VAST PUBLIC-FUNDED INDUSTRY DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE SUPPOSED ‘RIGHTS’ OF MIGRANTS. Made up of AN EXPENSIVE ARMY OF LAWYERS, LOBBYISTS AND OUTREACH WORKERS, THIS INDUSTRY HAS AGGRESSIVELY PROMOTED THE STATE IDEOLOGY OF MASS IMMIGRATION. Some £75 MILLION HAS BEEN GIVEN BY THE NATIONAL LOTTERY, FOR INSTANCE, TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE OF ASYLUM CAMPAIGNERS AND FIGHTING DEPORTATIONS.
Propaganda is a key weapon in this effort. We are constantly told that mass immigration is a huge gain to Britain, since new arrivals allegedly do the work that ordinary Britons will not. BUT THIS IS A LIE. IN FACT, IMMIGRANTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES, ARE FAR MORE LIKELY TO BE UNEMPLOYED THAN ARE ORDINARY BRITONS.
If we had a Government that believed in Britain, then it would join France in tackling the problem. BUT TRAGICALLY WE ARE LED BY A BUNCH OF TRAITORS FILLED WITH LOATHING FOR THEIR NATION.” (Daily Express - 22 April 2009)

IN THE NAME OF FIGHTING HOMOPHOBIA OR RACISM THE PUBLIC SECTOR HAS BECOME OUTRAGEOUSLY INTOLERANT.

SO ORDINARY BRITISH CITIZENS ARE NOW IN THE CRUELLY UNFAIR POSITION OF PAYING TAXES FOR THE SOLE PRIVILEGE OF BEING PUNISHED BY A GANG OF CHARLATANS, CONTROL FREAKS, GREED MERCHANTS AND IDEOLOGUES.” (Daily Express - 2 March 2009)
"It is now clear THE ECONOMIC CATASTROPHE HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE TWIN FORCES OF EXCESSIVE BORROWING AND UNFETTERED GLOBALISATION. THE WILFUL DISREGARD FOR EITHER FINANCIAL RESTRAINT OR THE BRITISH NATIONAL INTEREST HAS BEEN A DISASTER FOR OUR COUNTRY, DESTROYING JOBS AND STORING UP DEBTS THAT WILL BE A BURDEN FOR GENERATIONS.
So what is the Government’s solution? More borrowing and more globalisation, of course... The answer for our bankrupt economy is PILE UP MORE DEBT AND GIVE UP ANY LAST VESTIGE OF CONTROL OVER OUR OWN ECONOMIC DESTINY...
We constantly hear Labour ministers parroting the line ‘global problems require global solutions’. So we are told that we need a new ‘global financial regulator’ and new rules for the ‘global economy’... IN FASHIONABLE POLITICAL CIRCLES IT IS REGARDED AS OUTRAGEOUS TO ADVOCATE THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD PUT THE INTERESTS OF THE BRITISH PUBLIC FIRST BY LIMITING THE MOVEMENT OF LABOUR, TIGHTENING BORDERS, SUPPORTING DOMESTIC INDUSTRIES OR RESTRICTING IMPORTS. BRITAIN MUST BE TOTALLY OPEN TO FOREIGN CAPITAL, GOODS AND WORKERS, WARN LABOUR POLITICIANS, adding that protection is the route to xenophobic isolation...
THE VERY CONCEPT OF A NATIONAL INTEREST IS TREATED AS BACKWARD. THE NATURAL IMPULSE TO LOOK AFTER ONE’S OWN, WHAT USED TO BE SEEN AS NOBLE PATRIOTISM, IS NOW REGARDED AS DANGEROUSLY REACTIONARY. So we end up with the alternative created by the GLOBALISATION FREAKS where BRITISH WORKERS ARE DENIED THE RIGHT TO APPLY FOR JOBS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, WHERE THE WELFARE STATE PAYS AN AFGHAN SINGLE MOTHER £170,000 A YEAR IN HOUSING BENEFIT TO LIVE IN A LARGE VILLA IN WEST LONDON, WHERE DOLE QUEUES LENGTHEN WHILE CALL-CENTRES ARE RELOCATED TO INDIA AND WHERE DESPERATE MIGRANTS FLOOD INTO THE COUNTRY TO BE EXPLOITED BY EMPLOYERS PAYING £1 AN HOUR.
Protectionism would have avoided this kind of squalid anarchy and abuse of decent British citizens. Such a strategy, pursued through strong borders and support for British firms, could have helped to uphold our civilised society and maintain our economy. As it is, THE CREED OF GLOBALISATION HAS BROUGHT NOTHING BUT MISERY. IF WE’D HAD A BANKING SYSTEM THAT PUT THE INTERESTS OF OUR COUNTRY FIRST WE WOULD NOT BE IN THE PRESENT CHAOS, SINCE OUR BANKS WOULD NOT HAVE INDULGED IN RECKLESS LENDING TO SUB-PRIME AMERICAN HOMEBUYERS, RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS OR SPANISH PROPERTY INVESTORS. IT WAS THE WILD PURSUIT OF GLOBAL PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF BANKING PRINCIPLES, THAT HAS BROUGHT THE FINANCIAL SECTOR SO LOW...
WITHOUT THE OPEN-DOOR IMMIGRATION POLICY WE WOULD HAVE RETAINED THE SKILLS BASE IN ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION THAT ONCE MADE OUR COUNTRY GREAT. NOR WOULD WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO SPEND £30 BILLION A YEAR ON PUBLIC SERVICES TO IMMIGRANTS. A SENSE OF NATIONAL PRIDE, THE INSTINCT THAT LIES BEHIND PROTECTIONISM, WOULD HAVE PREVENTED BRITAIN FROM ENDURING THE LUNACIES OF MULTI-CULTURALISM.
WITHOUT GLOBALISATION WE WOULD STILL BE AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY RATHER THAN MERELY A REGION OF THE UNITED STATES OF EUROPE, AN ENTITY FOR WHICH WE NEVER VOTED. WE WOULD NOT HAVE TO HAND OVER £12BILLION A YEAR TO BRUSSELS FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING GOVERNED BY EUROCRATS. IN A PROTECTIONIST BRITAIN THAT LOOKED AFTER ITS OWN PEOPLE WE WOULD NOT BE SQUANDERING £8BILLION A YEAR ON OVERSEAS AID, MOST OF IT GOING TO AFRICA WHERE IT IS USED TO PROP UP TYRANNICAL, KLEPTOCRATIC REGIMES. IT IS THE HEIGHT OF ABSURDITY THAT WE ARE FORKING OUT £40MILLION A YEAR IN SUBSIDIES TO MUGABE’S ZIMBABWE.
PROTECTIONISM RUNS WITH THE GRAIN OF HUMAN NATURE, LIKE THE DESIRE TO HELP FAMILY, FRIENDS OR NEIGHBOURS.

"Lengthening dole queues are the supreme indictment of the Government’s immigration policy. For years we were told by Labour ministers that the destruction of our borders was the route to prosperity. Those of us who warned that the uncontrolled migration would cause not only social dislocation but also economic catastrophe were condemned as blinkered xenophobes unwilling to embrace the exciting prospects of ultra-globalised Britain...
UNFETTERED IMMIGRATION HAS BROUGHT ONLY MISERY TO OUR COUNTRY. AS WELL AS ADDING AN IMMENSE NEW BURDEN TO OUR TAXES, INFRASTRUCTURE AND PUBLIC SERVICES, THE VAST INFLUX OF FOREIGNERS TO OUR SHORES HAS GROTESQUELY DISTORTED THE LABOUR MARKET, THROWING MILLIONS OF BRITONS ON TO THE SCRAPHEAP...
WHILE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF BRITISH PEOPLE ARE BEING FORCED OUT OF WORK EVERY MONTH, THE MIGRANTS ARE STILL FLOCKING HERE. The heavy import of foreign labour at a time of deepening crisis is more than dangerously foolish. IT IS A CONTEMPTIBLE BETRAYAL OF THE BRITISH PUBLIC.
Two stories this week have exposed the hardship inflicted on British workers by unrestricted immigration. The first occurred at Staythorpe, Nottinghamshire, where the building of a new gas-fired power station was meant to create 850 jobs in the local construction industry. But now it turns out that, DESPITE THE AVAILABILITY OF A SKILLED WORKFORCE IN THE AREA, MOST OF THE JOBS ARE GOING TO HUNGARIANS, POLES AND SPANIARDS.
The second controversy arose on the Lincolnshire coast, where A GIANT FLOATING HOTEL HAS JUST BEEN MOORED AT GRIMSBY TO HOUSE HUNDREDS OF FOREIGN LABOURERS WHO ARE SAID TO BE REPLACING BRITISH EMPLOYEES AT THE GIANT LINDSEY OIL REFINERY, RUN BY THE FRENCH FIRM TOTAL...
It is a bit late for the unions to start bleating now. IF THEY HAD BEEN MORE ROBUST IN PROTECTING THEIR MEMBERS’ INTERESTS RATHER THAN ACTING AS PROPAGANDISTS FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR NATIONHOOD, WE MIGHT NOT BE IN SUCH A MESS.
The scandals at Staythorpe and Grimsby are hardly unique. THEY ARE PART OF A PATTERN OF DISDAIN FOR THE BRITISH WORKING CLASS, WHOSE NEEDS ARE CRUSHED BY GLOBALISATION. It is telling that IN THE TWO YEARS UP TO OCTOBER 2008, SUPPOSEDLY THE PEAK YEARS OF OUR ECONOMIC BOOM, UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG BRITISH-BORN ADULTS ACTUALLY DECLINED BY ALMOST 400,000. YET, AT THE SAME TIME, THE NUMBER OF FOREIGNERS IN WORK IN BRITAIN ROSE BY 900,000.
IN TOTAL, MORE THAN 80 PER CENT OF ALL NEW JOBS IN BRITAIN NOW GO TO IMMIGRANTS. The continuing support by the Government for immigration makes a mockery of Gordon Brown’s notorious pledge to create 'British jobs for British workers'. Indeed, ALL HIS NOISILY-TRUMPETED EMPLOYMENT SCHEMES... ARE RENDERED ABSURD WHEN THE INDIGENOUS POPULATION IS INCREASINGLY EXCLUDED FROM THE LABOUR MARKET. It is remarkable that THE LABOUR PARTY, WHICH WAS FOUNDED IN THE EDWARDIAN AGE TO REPRESENT THE WORKING CLASS, SHOULD BE INDULGING IN THIS BETRAYAL OF THE VERY PEOPLE WHO FORM THE BACKBONE OF BRITAIN.
Great Labour figures of the past, such as post-war foreign secretary and former union boss Ernie Bevin, saw their job as protecting British workers, not SUBJECTING THEM TO EXPLOITATION AND MARGINALISATION. Today, on the contrary, LABOUR PRACTISES OPEN PREJUDICE AGAINST THE INDIGENOUS WORKING CLASS IN ITS EAGERNESS TO ENFORCE GLOBALISATION AND DIVERSITY, WHAT LABOUR’S DEPUTY LEADER HARRIET HARMAN HAS DESCRIBED AS 'A NEW SOCIAL ORDER'. In fact, under Harman’s misnamed Equalities Bill, DIRECT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WHITE MEN IS TO BE BECOME LEGAL, AS FIRMS WILL BE ALLOWED TO RESERVE JOBS FOR WOMEN AND MINORITY ETHNIC GROUPS.
IF WE HAD A GOVERNMENT THAT CARED AT ALL ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS, WE WOULD BE HELPING THE BRITISH PEOPLE INSTEAD OF DISCRIMINATING AGAINST THEM… At a time of mass unemployment, it is absurd to be importing labour from overseas… IF THE EU DOESN’T LIKE IT, THEN WE CAN JUST SUSPEND OUR MEMBERSHIP. THE INTERESTS OF OUR NATION MUST COME BEFORE THOSE OF THE BRUSSELS BUREAUCRACY. But there is no chance of any of these measures being implemented by Labour. THE SPIRIT OF TREACHERY RUNS TOO DEEP."
