Sir Jimmy Young is an 88-year-old DJ and interviews politicians and celebs for BBC Radio.
He was also a pop star in the 1950s and had two number one hits.
On 9 August 2009, he wrote the following in The Sunday Express:
“GORDON BROWN PURSUES HIS POLICY OF OPEN-DOOR IMMIGRATION, INTENT ON BUILDING UP A CLIENT STATE OF VOTERS WHO WILL BE DULY GRATEFUL TO LABOUR.
Recently Home Secretary Alan Johnson infamously declared that he doesn’t lie awake at night worrying about immigration. Well perhaps he should. Huge numbers of ordinary people declare to pollsters and political activists that the level of immigration is near the top of their list of worries. They protest that allowing our present population of 61million to increase to the 70million predicted by Whitehall statisticians would be A GROSS ABUSE OF BRITISH HOSPITALITY…
But the Government is so traumatised by the public’s resentment of its open-door policy that IT VICIOUSLY ATTACKS ANYONE WHO DARES TO CRITICISE IT.”
Oh yes, Sir James, we are well aware of this.
Nice of you to point it out in the mainstream though.
On 12 August 2007, in the same newspaper, Jimmy analysed another less obvious but equally "vicious" attack thus:
“How long, I wonder, will the English continue to tolerate the fiction that they are an equal partner in a United Kingdom? Since it was elected in 1997, Labour’s policy has been to create a blatantly Disunited Kingdom. IT HAS WRENCHED THE UK APART THROUGH DEVOLUTION, A DEEPLY CYNICAL MOVE AIMED AT KEEPING HAPPY THE FIVE MILLION SCOTS WITHOUT WHOSE VOTES THERE WOULD NEVER BE ANOTHER LABOUR GOVERNMENT.
Devolution and a Scottish parliament mean that Scots are able to enjoy the best of all worlds. Because ENGLAND POURS BILLIONS OF POUNDS IN SUBSIDIES INTO SCOTLAND EVERY YEAR, SCOTS ENJOY PRIVILEGED TREATMENT IN HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES DENIED TO THE ENGLISH.
IN 2006, SPENDING ON PUBLIC SERVICES IN SCOTLAND WAS ABOUT £1,500 PER HEAD MORE THAN IN ENGLAND. Drugs, including some cancer drugs and one aimed at combating wet age-related macular degeneration, which is a leading cause of blinddness, are available to Scottish patients. Yet, at present, THESE SAME DRUGS ARE DENIED TO THE ENGLISH ON THE GROUNDS OF COST.
In a bizarre, Labour-created situation, ENGLISH TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING TO MAKE AVAILABLE FOR SCOTTISH PATIENTS DRUGS THAT ARE DENIED TO THE ENGLISH.
The extent of Labour’s cynicism was highlighted when TONY BLAIR HAD TO RELY ON THE VOTES OF SCOTTISH MPS TO PUSH THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION OF £3,000-A-YEAR FEES AT ENGLISH UNIVERSITIES. YET FROM 2009, SCOTTISH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WILL PAY NOTHING.
LABOUR HAS DELIBERATELY CREATED A MEDICAL AND EDUCATIONAL APARTHEID…
Recently, Gordon Brown attempted to justify the difference in funding by claiming that THE SYSTEM HAS EXISTED FOR ‘30 OR MAYBE 40 YEARS‘, AS THOUGH THAT MAKES IT FAIR. Actually, it was invented 29 years ago, in 1978, by the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Joel Barnett MP.
Unfortunately for the Prime Minister’s credibility, Lord Barnett (as he now is) says his formula has outlived its purpose and is now ‘clearly in need of a change‘. Do we believe that Mr Brown will make the necessary changes that would risk alienating five million Scots without whose votes he would be out on his ear?
Of course we don’t.”
Well said, Jim.
This is what the long-suffering English get when a Scots-Irish Prime Minister (Tony Blair) and a Scottish Chancellor of the Exchequer (Gordon Brown) are immediately followed by a Scottish Prime Minster (Gordon Brown) whose Chancellor of the Exchequer is also Scottish. (Alistair Darling)
If you would like to check out just how grotesquely under-represented the English were during Tony Blair’s time as New Labour leader, go here:
In House of Commons Research Paper 01/108, Professor David Heald tells us this:
“It is an indication of the extent of official secrecy that this (the Barnett Formula) was never placed on the public record until the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs elicited this information from Mr Younger. THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT DID NOT REVEAL THE EXISTENCE OF THIS FORMULA DESPITE ITS RELEVANCE TO THE DEBATE ON THE FINANCING OF DEVOLVED ASSEMBLIES.”
The Barnett formula was put in place secretly, without recourse to law, by the Callaghan government and is not, therefore, statutory. As such, this grossly unfair confection could have been overturned at any time since its clandestine introduction by the country’s leaders. The fact that Blair chose to keep it in place even AFTER he had given the Scots the power to conduct their own affairs is deeply illustrative of the great traitor’s attitude to all things English.
