### Chronological Quotations 4

On 30 July 2011 Anthony Horowitz said this in The Telegraph:

“OUR MORAL BANKRUPTCY IS TONY BLAIR'S LASTING LEGACY. All the pillars of the Establishment – the press, the police, the politicians – have toppled like oversized dominos. Greece may be just about bankrupt. MORALLY, I’D SAY THE UK ISN’T FAR BEHIND…

How have we reached this bottom-of-the-barrel mentality, where Sir Paul Stephenson, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, can boast that his ‘integrity is intact’ despite having accepted £12,000 of free hospitality at a health spa? Where Rebekah Brooks can say she is ‘shocked and appalled‘, but take weeks to resign? And how could anyone have actually lived with themselves, after hacking into the messages of a murdered schoolgirl?…

Who is going to sort out this mess? We have precious little hope when the chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, enjoying his moment in the limelight, is KEITH VAZ, who knows a thing or two about scandal, having OBSTRUCTED AN INQUIRY INTO HIS CONNECTIONS TO THE BILLIONAIRE HINDUJA BROTHERS, AND LATER CLAIMED £75,500 FOR A FLAT 12 MILES FROM HIS HOME.

IT ALL STARTED, OF COURSE, WITH TONY BLAIR. He wasn’t the first prime minister to kowtow to Murdoch, but in so many ways he set the trend for what is happening now. Bernie Ecclestone. The BAE bribery inquiry dropped for national security reasons. Dodgy flats in Bristol. Free holidays with millionaire pop stars. We don’t need to rehearse all these stories, because they’ve seeped into the national consciousness.

And next to Blair there was Alastair Campbell, a man as unsuited for public office in his own way as Andy Coulson was in his. Why shouldn’t Cameron follow Blair’s example and employ AN EX-TABLOID JOURNALIST WITH A FOUL MOUTH AND A REPUTATION FOR BULLYING? After all, it wasn’t going to lead to war.

With Blair… MORAL AMBIGUITY BECAME THE ORDER OF THE DAY – and if our political leaders could get away with it, so could everyone else. THE RICH AND THE POWERFUL WERE NOT ONLY IMMUNE FROM THE LAW. THEY WERE, VIA SUPER-INJUNCTIONS, PROTECTED BY IT. Public inquiries into perceived wrongdoing came to conclusions that seemed to bear little relation to the evidence.

Another knight, SIR IAN BLAIR, PRESIDED OVER THE KILLING OF AN UNARMED BRAZILIAN PLUMBER AND THE DISINFORMATION THAT FOLLOWED… Stephen Byers, before his post-government career as ‘a cab for hire‘, APPROVED THE SALE OF A NATIONAL NEWSPAPER TO A PURVEYOR OF PORNOGRAPHY. PETER MANDELSON AND DAVID BLUNKETT WERE BOTH FIRED, TWICE. And then there was Jacqui Smith…

THE NEW LABOUR YEARS CREATED AN ATMOSPHERE OF SHAMELESSNESS – AND NOW WE’RE LIVING WITH THE RESULTS. Footballers are almost expected to cheat and take drugs; stars all sleep three-in-a-bed with prostitutes. Even the royal family, in the portly shape of Prince Andrew, can be photographed cavorting with known sex offenders…

One step leads to another, and whoever took the step from pampered celebrity to murdered schoolgirl surely didn’t even distinguish between the two…

WHATEVER IS ROTTEN IN BRITAIN WAS ROTTEN A LONG TIME AGO. AFTER BLAIR, WE WERE NO LONGER ABLE TO TRUST THOSE WHO RUN THE COUNTRY. GOD HELP US IF WE CAN NO LONGER TRUST THOSE WHO HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT.”

Excellently well said, Mr Horowitz.

Much is, indeed, "rotten" in the State. "Who is going to sort out this mess?" Not the media, that's for sure. Not even those who write the occasional excellent article. You see, the media is bought and paid for. Even those who write excellent articles are, at some level, owned. There are truths that I'm sure you would not tell, Mr Horowitz, despite the fine moral sense implied by your article.

There are truths which you know to be true which, if the general public were allowed to know them, would incense you. For example, you will know that Rupert Murdoch has, for three decades, been the media's most powerful Zionist. He is utterly committed to Israel. Within his mighty media empire, only one local paper was allowed to speak out against the war in Iraq. Would you be happy if such information became generally known? Perhaps. But would you applaud the journalist who blew the whistle on the Neocons who were pushing for a second war with Iraq ever since the first once ended in 1991? Most of them were Jewish, you see. Which is something Rupert Murdoch and the politicians he owns are never going to tell the public.

Telling tales on those who are supposed to be off-limits is very important in respect of the "who-is-going-to-sort-out-this-mess" conundrum. So often, you see, it is just such untouchable folk who create "the horror" and "the tragedy" in the first place. So, Mr Horowitz, would you speak out in every instance if it helped dispel the "atmosphere of shamelessness"?

Some do, you know. Some will condemn their fellow Jews when they behave in an asocietal way. People like the historian, Norman Finkelstein, who dares to rubbish the accepted "Holocaust" statistics; Gilead Altmon, Nathanael Kapner and Henry Makow, all of whom speak out forcibly against all manner of Jewish depredation. And then there's Ari Shavit, the reporter, who, three weeks after the second war in Iraq began, said this in the Israeli daily, Haaretz:

"The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, MOST OF THEM JEWISH, WHO ARE PUSHING PRESIDENT BUSH TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY."

http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/white-man-s-burden-1.14110 Now would you, a

Jewish gentleman, advocate the telling of such a tale? In order to help eradicate the "bottom-of-the-barrel mentality" that you, yourself, rail against here? You see, those who routinely pay attention will have known long ago that the Neocons were the prime movers behind the war in Iraq. But very few will have delved deeply enough to discover that "most of them" were Jewish.

One last whistle I invite you to blow, Mr Horowitz. I have already mentioned that Rupert Murdoch is the world's leading media Zionist. Two separate inquiries have been set up to inquire into his media empire. On 13 July 2011, it was announced that Lord Leveson would lead the public inquiry into the phone hacking scandal, despite his having attended two parties in the previous twelve months at the home of Matthew Freud, the husband of Rupert Murdoch's daughter. Both Leveson and Freud are Jewish.

On 18 July 2011, The Jewish Chronicle informed us thus:

"Lord Grabiner has been appointed to chair News International's Management and Standards Committee. The Jewish QC, 66, will oversee the investigations into behaviour at News International companies.... Lord Grabiner and the committee will report to the directors of the News Corp board. Director Joel Klein said he was pleased 'such an eminent person' had agreed to lead the committee."

Both Grabiner and the News Corp director so pleased by his appointment are also Jewish.

Two Jews in charge of the official enquiries into the criminal behaviours of the operatives of the world's leading media Zionist. And those his power and influence have corrupted.

Jews comprise 1-in-200 of the British population. Looked at from a purely mathematical viewpoint, the chances of two Jewish chaps ending up heading both of these enquiries is 4,000-to-1. Thus, the Jew has 4,000 times more influence than he ought to have regarding the processing of these reports and the conclusions they ultimately draw. That's what my mathematics tell me.

What do you think, Mr Horowitz? Is this just a coincidence? Is it a fluke? Does it not matter? Or would you consider that such a Zionism-friendly 4,000-to-1 "fluke" might equate in any way to the "atmosphere of shamelessness" of which you spoke?

On 30 July 2011, Oliver Letwin, David Cameron’s Policy Minister, said this at the London HQ of KPMG, which won the first contract for NHS commissioning. (Privatisation by the back door)

“You can't have room for innovation and the pressure for excellence without having SOME REAL DISCIPLINE AND SOME FEAR ON THE PART OF THE PROVIDERS that things may go wrong if they don't live up to the aims that society as a whole is demanding of them. If you have diversity of provision and personal choice and power, some providers will be better and some worse. Inevitably, some will not… because they can't get results and hence CAN'T GET PAID. SOME WILL NOT SURVIVE. It is an inevitable and INTENDED consequence of what we are talking about.”

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union responded thus:

“Public sector workers are already working in fear. Fear of cuts to their job, pension, living standards and of privatisation. Far from improving productivity, the cuts are creating chaos in vital public services.”

Letwin is Jewish.

David Cameron, who is mostly Scottish, is about 10 percent Jewish.

On 29 August 2011, Leo McKinstry said this in The Daily Express:

"The Tory-led Government continues to lurch from one crisis to another. On every front ministers appear impotent, FROM THE FLAMING INNER-CITIES TO THE PARALYSED ECONOMY, FROM RISING IMMIGRATION TO FALLING EMPLOYMENT.

The failure by David Cameron’s coalition to provide the nation with robust leadership should present an easy target to the Opposition. Yet the Labour Party, TRAPPED BY ITS POLITICALLY CORRECT DOGMA AND WOEFULLY RUN BY THE GAUCHE ED MILIBAND, keeps missing the target…

According to a document leaked at the weekend, Labour strategists plan an autumn offensive against the Government in which Cameron will be portrayed as 'a recognisably right-wing leader' and a 'traditional Tory'… This approach could hardly be more laughably ill- conceived. Only someone with a keen sense of irony could describe the Prime Minister as 'Right-wing'.

The fact that Labour could come up with such nonsense just exposes how badly THE PARTY HAS LOST ALL GRIP ON REALITY. LABOUR’S CAMPAIGNERS NOW APPEAR TO INHABIT A MARXIST FANTASY LAND WHERE, IN THEIR SELF-DELUSION, THEY THINK THE BRITISH PEOPLE SHARE THEIR ATTACHMENT TO ALL THE ORTHODOXIES OF LEFT-WING IDEOLOGY.But after 13 years of Labour rule much of the country is crying out for a more vigorous, Conservative style of government, ESPECIALLY ON IMMIGRATION, EUROPE AND CRIME…

MOST VOTERS WOULD WELCOME THE RESTORATION OF TOUGH BORDER CONTROLS, A LESS SERVILE RELATION-SHIP WITH BRUSSELS AND LONGER JAIL SENTENCES. One opinion poll last week showed that A SIGNIFICANT MAJORITY EVEN WANTS TO SEE THE DEATH PENALTY BROUGHT BACK, SOMETHING THAT IS TABOO AMONGST THE POLITICAL ELITE...

It is absurd to pretend, as Labour chiefs argue, that he has vacated the 'centre ground', which in reality is just THE TERRAIN OF FASHIONABLE LEFT-WING THINKING, WITH ALL ITS SUPPORT FOR THE EU, MULTI-CULTURALISM, A VAST PUBLIC SECTOR, HIGH TAXATION AND SOFTNESS ON CRIME.

This is precisely the outlook Cameron has adopted throughout his time as Prime Minister. THERE IS NOTHING REMOTELY CONSERVATIVE ABOUT HIS CABINET. HIS POLICIES ARE ALMOST INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM THOSE ADOPTED BY LABOUR…

THIS IS A LEADER WHO HAS PRESIDED OVER A MASSIVE INCREASE IN NET MIGRATION TO BRITAIN, FURTHER ACCELERATING THE TRANSFORMATION OF OUR COUNTRY…

575,000 NEW ARRIVALS CAME HERE IN 2010, the first year of Cameron’s Government…

Cameron has just indulged in tinkering and EMPTY WORDS… HE HAS DONE NOTHING TO CHALLENGE BRUSSELS BUT HAS BOMBED LIBYA TO BRING HARDLINE ISLAMISTS TO POWER IN TRIPOLI. HE HAS SLASHED THE ARMED FORCES BUT SQUANDERED BILLIONS ON FOREIGN AID. HE SEEMS INCAPABLE OF DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THE WRETCHED HUMAN RIGHTS ACT YET HAS ENCOURAGED HIS MINISTERS TO INDULGE IN LABOUR-STYLE SOCIAL ENGINEERING SUCH AS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUALITY ACT, WHICH ALLOWS EMPLOYERS TO DISCRIMINATE IN FAVOUR OF WOMEN AND ETHNIC MINORITIES…

No radical steps have been taken on public sector pensions or the costs of welfare or the size of the quangos. INSTEAD OF SUPPORTING THOSE IN WORK, THE COALITION HAS HAMMERED THEM WITH EXTRA CHARGES, SUCH AS THE 2.5 PER CENT RISE IN VAT, THE WIDENING OF INCOME TAX BANDS AND INFLATION-BUSTING INCREASES IN RAIL FARES…

It was Robin Harris, one of Mrs Thatcher’s closest advisers, who said that HE 'DOESN’T BELIEVE IN ANYTHING'... It is telling that the political thinkers who have most influenced Cameron are progressives such as Phillip Blond, British radical and academic, or CASS SUNSTEIN, US ADVISER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA…

If Cameron is so conflicted about his affluent background he should have become a socialist or a social worker. But to masquerade as a Conservative is an insult to the political process and a betrayal of the British people."

On 29 August 2011, Chris Ames and Richard Norton-Taylor reported this in The Guardian:

"Blair and Bush planned Iraq war without second UN vote… Britain and the US were planning to take action against Saddam Hussein without a second UN resolution five months before the invasion of Iraq, a newly released letter from Tony Blair's office shows… Dated 17 October 2002, it was written by Matthew Rycroft to Mark Sedwill, private secretary to the foreign secretary, Jack Straw.

'This letter is sensitive,' Rycroft underlined. 'It must be seen only by those with a real need to know its contents, and must not be copied further’…

Rycroft's letter referred to a Downing Street meeting on the Iraqi crisis attended by Straw, the defence secretary, Geoff Hoon, and the chief of the defence staff, Admiral Sir Mike Boyce. Also present were Blair's chief of staff, Jonathan Powell; his director of government relations, Sally Morgan; his director of communications, Alastair Campbell; and his chief foreign policy adviser, David Manning.

The meeting concluded, wrote Rycroft, that 'the only way to keep the US on the UN route was for there to be a clear understanding that if Blix reported an Iraqi breach of the first resolution, then Saddam would not have a second chance'.

In a devastating passage, Rycroft added: 'IN OTHER WORDS, IF FOR SOME REASON THERE WERE NO SECOND RESOLUTION AGREED … WE AND THE US WOULD TAKE ACTION.'

The Downing Street letter is particularly significant CONSIDERING THE GOVERNMENT'S REPEATED EMPHASIS IN PUBLIC AT THE TIME ON THE NEED FOR UN APPROVAL BEFORE ANY INVASION OF IRAQ.

Philippe Sands, professor of international law at University College London, said: 'The letter of 17 October 2002 is consistent with the conclusion that THE PRIME MINISTER WANTED TO PROCEED TO ACTION WITH THE US ON THE BASIS OF A SINGLE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT THE LAW REQUIRED, AND IGNORING THE VIEWS AT THE TIME OF THE FOREIGN OFFICE LEGAL ADVISER AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL… It reflects the widespread view that what became UNSCR 1441 would not authorise military action without a second resolution. HIS LATEST STATEMENT SHOOTS A VERY BIG HOLE IN THE ARGUMENTS OF MESSRS GOLDSMITH AND STRAW, AND ONE WONDERS WHY THEY ULTIMATELY FAILED TO REFLECT ITS CONTENTS IN THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS’.”

On 29 August 2011, The Daily Mail told us this:

"The BBC has been inundated with complaints about explicit homosexual love scenes in its blockbuster sci-fi drama Torchwood. More than 500 viewers complained directly to the broadcaster about ‘soft porn’ scenes in Thursday’s episode…

Despite the complaints the BBC has still made the programme available via its iPlayer service and it is planning to repeat it on BBC2 tomorrow night. One viewer wrote online:

‘This show is meant to be a sci-fi show. I had to turn it off as my grandson, an avid sci-fi fan, was in the room. I am sure both myself and others are disgusted at last night’s show. LEAVE THE GAY SCENES FOR THE PROGRAMMES MORE SUITED – not sci-fi.’

Another accused THE BBC OF TURNING THE SHOW INTO ‘GAY PORN’ and a third wrote:

‘The homosexual content is totally out of proportion and so we have decided not to watch any more.’

Torchwood… charts the adventures of a team of sci-fi investigators led by Captain Jack Harkness, a time-travelling adventurer WHO IS ‘PAN-SEXUAL’ AND WHO IS PLAYED BY ACTOR JOHN BARROWMAN, HIMSELF GAY.

Fans of the series, CREATED BY RUSSELL T. DAVIES, THE HOMOSEXUAL WRITER OF DOCTOR WHO AND QUEER AS FOLK, have long known about Captain Jack’s sexual preferences.

But many, including younger viewers who know Barrowman’s character from Doctor Who, have been increasingly alarmed by THE CURRENT SERIES, WHICH THEY FEEL HAS BECOME OBSESSED WITH EXPLORING JACK’S SEX LIFE IN THE MOST EXPLICIT MANNER POSSIBLE.

Thursday’s episode, Immortal Sins, was largely devoted to Captain Jack’s relationship with a young Italian called Angelo, played by Daniele Favilli. Within minutes of the programme starting at 9pm, VIEWERS SAW A SEVEN-MINUTE SCENE OF HOMOSEXUAL SEDUCTION. It began with the two men standing at a window in a New York apartment and discussing a woman in a neighbouring block… The men share a passionate kiss and the camera then cuts to them cavorting in bed…

David Turtle, a spokesman for Mediawatch UK, the viewers’ campaign group, said:

‘The BBC will say the programme is being shown after the 9pm watershed. But it doesn’t alter the fact that THE PROGRAMME IS WATCHED BY A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE AND IS EASILY ACCESSIBLE ON IPLAYER AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY. I think the BBC risks losing face with the audience who will become increasingly disconnected from what they see on screen.’

The BBC said:

‘WE FELT THE CONTENT WAS JUSTIFIED in terms of the context and character and within THE EXPECTATIONS OF REGULAR VIEWERS. We aim to depict relationships, whether heterosexual or homosexual, in an honest and realistic way. THESE SCENES ARE NOT MEANT TO CAUSE OFFENCE.”

Not meant to cause offence?

Bullsh*t! The "scenes" are meant to cause offence AND to con the young into thinking homosexuality is cool.

In a 14 September 2006 edition of his sitcom, Extras, Ricky Gervaise's character, Andy Millman, is asked this question by Keith Chegwin:

"The BBC – still run by Jews and queers is it?"

Out of the mouths of fools, babes and Ricky Gervaise characters, eh?

On 27 August 2011, Jenny McCartney’s article, ‘Without history, we have only ignorance’ appeared in The Daily Telegraph.

In this she said:

"The failure of schools to teach history has helped create a wider crisis of identity. History is the most inescapable of subjects: we inherit it, we make it, and we are fated to become part of it. In our education system, however, ITS STUDY IS INCREASINGLY NEGLECTED: INDEED, IN A LARGE NUMBER OF BRITISH SCHOOLS, THE END OF HISTORY IS ALREADY A REALITY.

LAST YEAR, A TOTAL OF 159 SECONDARY SCHOOLS DID NOT PUT A SINGLE PUPIL FORWARD FOR HISTORY GCSE. IN STATE COMPREHENSIVES, THE NUMBER OF PUPILS TAKING THE SUBJECT HAS FALLEN TO 29.9 PER CENT; in private schools, it has dipped to 47.7 per cent. The only sector where numbers are rising is state grammars, where it is taken by 54.8 per cent.

What the statistics suggest is that THE LEAST WELL-OFF PUPILS ARE ALSO FATED TO BE THE MOST IGNORANT BOTH OF THEIR PERSONAL CULTURAL HISTORY, AND THAT OF THE COUNTRY IN WHICH THEY LIVE. This is, in part, because history is perceived as a 'hard' subject. EAGER TO SHINE IN THE LEAGUE TABLES, SCHOOLS WITH AN ACADEMICALLY PROBLEMATIC INTAKE SHEPHERD PUPILS TOWARDS 'SOFTER' SUBJECTS, IN WHICH HIGHER MARKS CAN MORE EASILY BE GUARANTEED. I cannot think of a more depressing illustration of the gulf between 'performance' and education.

The pitiful irony is that it is children from poorer, and often more dysfunctional backgrounds that have the greatest need, and thirst, for history. For HISTORY, WHETHER OF FAMILY OR NATION, IS THE STORY OF IDENTITY, the construction of which is the most primitive, deep-seated urge there is. IF YOU CANNOT ARTICULATE WHERE YOU CAME FROM OR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN, AND ARE GIVEN FEW INTELLECTUAL OR EMOTIONAL TOOLS WITH WHICH TO DO SO, YOU ARE FATED TO BECOME THE MOST UNSTABLE, COMBUSTIBLE HUMAN MATERIAL OF ALL…

IN POORER BLACK COMMUNITIES IN BOTH THE US AND BRITAIN, THE HOPE-FILLED LANGUAGE OF CIVIL RIGHTS, ROOTED IN COMMUNAL EXPERIENCE AND HOLDING OUT THE PROMISE OF A BETTER FUTURE, HAS TOO OFTEN BEEN DISPLACED IN POPULAR CULTURE BY THE GLORIFICATION OF GANGS, DRUGS, SEX AND EASY MONEY, WITH LITTLE PHILOSOPHY BEYOND THE BUZZ OF THE NOW. The destructive results of this abandonment of history apply equally to the white working class.

What surprised me, when I became a parent for the first time, is the open craving of small children for family stories. They frequently revisit them, asking for repetitions and expansions, gathering the information in a way that suggests it is almost as necessary to their growth as food…

We cannot elude history, but we ignore it at our peril. Cicero argued that 'to remain ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child'.”

The dumbing-down of the British people and the deliberate sabotage of their traditions, culture and heritage is summed up in the first paragraph of this article.

As the pilosopher George Santayana once said:

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".

Those who intentionally destroyed our world know this.

On 27 August 2011, Alasdair Palmer said this in The Telegraph:

"Immigration used to be the great unmentionable. If anyone pointed out THE RATE AT WHICH IT WAS INCREASING, AND THE PROBLEMS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE, EDUCATION AND THE NHS OF ADDING TWO MILLION PEOPLE TO OUR POPULATION EVERY DECADE, THEY WERE ACCUSED OF BEING RACIST. I know: it happened to me.

IT WAS AN EFFECTIVE WAY OF PREVENTING THE TOPIC FROM BEING DISCUSSED, AND WAS FREQUENTLY USED BY LABOUR MINISTERS FOR PRECISELY THAT PURPOSE. But at the last election, it was impossible to prevent the issue – which everyone knew was one of the most important for voters – from being raised. The Tories came up with measures that they promised would diminish the number of immigrants...

FAR FROM GOING DOWN, NET IMMIGRATION (the number of foreigners settling in Britain minus the number of Britons leaving) HAS RISEN BY 20 PER CENT, TO REACH 239,000...

The figures still raise the delicate question of whether the Coalition’s policies will actually succeed in reducing immigration… Nick Clegg was simply wrong when he insisted that controls are pointless, because most of the people who settle in the UK are from countries in the EU. In fact, 80 PER CENT OF MIGRANTS TO BRITAIN ARE FROM OUTSIDE THE EU, so there is no legal barrier to restricting significantly the number who are allowed to settle. Nothing, in principle, stops the Government from putting effective controls in place…

So the real question is this: how badly do ministers want to cut immigration? THE LIB DEMS CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING: THEY ARE FRANK ABOUT REGARDING CONTROLS AS EITHER ECONOMICALLY DAMAGING OR BLATANTLY RACIST. The Tories say they’re committed to achieving dramatic cuts. BUT SO FAR, THE COALITION HASN’T DONE MORE THAN TINKER AROUND THE EDGES OF THE SYSTEM – as Damian Green, the immigration minister, must have known, even as he said on Thursday that ministers had initiated ‘radical changes’.

Around half of the immigrants who arrive each year are foreign students and their dependants. The Coalition’s new regulations require students to speak English, and to provide evidence that they can support themselves and the family members who come with them. It’s a start – but it’s not a ‘radical change’. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, claims that the rules will reduce the number of students and their relatives by 80,000. But no one knows how easy it will be to evade the new controls. They will be based largely on form-filling: if you tick the right boxes, you will get your visas. OUR JUDGES MAY ANYWAY DECLARE THE NEW PROCEDURE BY VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS…

The Coalition also plans to end the link between being given a permit to work in the UK and having the right to settle here. That could diminish immigration significantly. The problem is that the proposal is just that: a proposal, not a policy. It is subject to consultation, a process which may enfeeble it. Whether it will be implemented at all remains to be seen.

The Conservatives have broken the taboo on discussing immigration. But what is still not being discussed are the practical measures that will be effective in diminishing it. THAT TOPIC IS STILL OFF LIMITS – WHICH MEANS THAT IT IS SURROUNDED BY CONFUSION, HALF-TRUTHS AND SPIN. And that is not good for immigration policy. OR FOR DEMOCRACY.”

The BNP, the NF et al have been banging on about "the great unmentionable" since before the flood, Alasdair.

And, as you say, when we "pointed out the rate at which it was increasing, and the problems for infrastructure, education and the NHS of adding two million people to our population every decade," we were "accused of being racist". Just like you.

Difference being, THEY, THEIR hired help and the sheeple who believe whatever gets said on the box, will carry on accusing us of "racism" until hell freezes over. Whereas the Alasdair-come-latelies to the immigration debate, the acceptable face of non-racist, let's-hear-it-for-the-native-Brit wisdom, can now tell it exactly as it is without fear of reprisal.

Which is fine by the Nationalist, of course. As long as the foreigner-first posse is being challenged, we don't care who does the challenging. However, it would be nice if, once in a while, when Mr England says something that a mainstream media darling can agree with, said agreement could be acknowledged.

You see, Alasdair, until the British Nationalist begins to receive some of the credit he's due, the sheeple are going to carry on believing that he's a skinhead hooligan with tattoos on his eyeballs. Instead, for example, of being way the most consistently outpoken fellow in the UK's political firmament as regards mass immigration, non-participation in the Iraq adventure, globalism and political corruption.

The lack of congratulation for getting it right, along with the constant negative misrepresentation by the establishment, isn't fair, really. When all most Britain-first folk were ever doing was trying to protect their own from those who couldn't have cared less about them.

Oh yes, even amongst the stalwart truth-tellers of the "acceptable face", the what-Nationalism-actually-does-says-and-thinks "topic is still off limits" and, as such, will remain "surrounded by confusion, half-truths and spin."

And that, Alasdair, whilst it might be good for "Labour Ministers... Nick Clegg... and the Liberal Democrats", it is "not good... for democracy."

On 26 August 2011, Graeme Archer said this in The Daily Telegraph:

“Are you in favour of human rights? Of course you are. Who could be against them? In as much as I thought at all about Labour’s Human Rights Act… I imagined that it was a MONEY-MAKING SCHEME FOR BARRISTERS, who would test the patience of the rest of us with an irritating but mostly harmless sequence of cases involving school uniforms and religious jewellery. Then came the demand that prisoners should be allowed to vote...

It’s easy to mock the Leftist fetish for the adjectival phrase ‘human rights’, as though a worldly noun is imbued with goodness simply because it has a certain prefix. COLONEL GADDAFI’S LIBYA ONCE CHAIRED THE UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL… To mock is not sufficient, however. The phrase itself has political power…

Denis MacShane… published the following on the internet on Tuesday: ‘Just popped into Nuremberg rally memorial site, to recall what happens when Right gets carried away. WONDER IF GERMANS TRASH HUMAN RIGHTS?”

We should listen to Mr MacShane, not least because the IT systems he uses to transmit his thoughts cost us all so dearly (HE FAMOUSLY CLAIMED FOR EIGHT LAPTOPS IN THREE YEARS; the police are currently investigating his expenses)… Let’s not FORGIVE HIS FRANKLY DISGUSTING EQUATION OF NAZI GERMANY WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO THE RIOTS IN BRITAIN….

There may one day be a government, free of THE BALEFUL INFLUENCE OF THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS, which deletes the Human Rights Act from the statute book and reappraises our relationship with bodies such as the Council of Europe. But what if it turns out that the Act was a symptom, and not a cause?

A CULTURE OR A PARTY WHICH USES LANGUAGE TO END POLITICAL DEBATE IS FAR MORE CHILLING THAN ANY SINGLE LEGISLATIVE ACT. DENIS MACSHANE UNDERSTANDS THIS. THAT’S WHY HE WILL CALL YOU A NAZI IF YOU DARE TO DISAGREE WITH HIM: BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT HE CAN.”

Denis MacShane, as nasty an anti-English piece of work as it is possible to imagine, was the director of the European Policy Institute from 1992 to 1994.

Tony Blair appointed him Minister of State for Europe after Keith Vaz's various improprieties became a liability. He is now a Privy Councillor. MacShane is, like Blair, the son of an Irish mother. His father was Polish. His real name is Denis Matyjaszek.

On 26 August 2011, Damian Thompson’s article, ‘Witnessing the live birth of gangland,’ appeared in The Daily Telegraph.

“In 2010, A QUARTER OF BIRTHS WERE TO MOTHERS BORN OUTSIDE THE UK, according to the ONS. The same set of statistics also showed that immigration added 239,000 to our population – a number which proves that THIS GOVERNMENT HAS NO MORE CONTROL OVER OUR BORDERS THAN THE LAST ONE. The public instinctively senses this, but immigration figures are sufficiently complex that THE BBC HAS NO DIFFICULTY IN FINDING LIBERAL LOBBY GROUPS TO OBSCURE THEIR MEANING. Not so those “live births”.

If a quarter of all babies born in England and Wales are to foreign mothers, then WE’RE EXPERIENCING THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN OUR DEMOGRAPHIC IDENTITY SINCE THE ANGLO-SAXON INVASIONS OF THE FIFTH CENTURY. Future historians will regard this as the major development in early 21st-century British history, more important even than the loss of our sovereignty to the EU, which I’m beginning to think may be reversed one day, thanks to the slapstick collapse of the euro. DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGE, IN CONTRAST, CAN’T BE UNDONE BY HAPPY ACCIDENTS.

Nothing like this has happened before. Please PAY NO ATTENTION NEXT TIME A LEFT-WING HISTORIAN POPS UP ON TV TO ROMANTICISE THE ARRIVAL OF THE NORMANS, HUGUENOTS, EASTERN EUROPEAN JEWS ETC. These were significant influxes, but GREAT BRITAIN HAS NEVER BEEN ‘A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS’. Even cosmopolitan London has witnessed nothing remotely comparable to the population shift recorded by the ONS statistics. More than half of all babies born in the capital in 2010 were to foreign mothers; in the borough of Newham more than three quarters of all new mothers were born abroad.

Another statistic that jumps out of the ONS findings relates to Poles. IN 2001, THERE WERE 896 BABIES BORN TO POLISH MOTHERS IN ENGLAND AND WALES; IN 2010, THERE WERE 19,762. Meanwhile, births to Middle Eastern, African and Asian mothers amounted to 14.7 per cent – that’s twice the proportion of non-British European mothers. Add that 14.7 per cent to children born to non-white British mothers and WITHIN A FEW YEARS, A QUARTER OF YOUNG BRITONS WILL BE BLACK, ASIAN OR OF MIXED RACE. IN THE CAPITAL, THE TOTAL WILL BE WELL OVER 50 PER CENT…

The danger lies in a clash of ethnic and religious cultures against a background of broken families. LONDON IS ALREADY WELL ON THE WAY TO TURNING INTO A US CITY, WITH SPRAWLING BLACK GHETTOS AND A SEMI-INVISIBLE NETWORK OF FOREIGN WHITE GANGS: organised crime from Eastern Europe, one of the most powerful forces in the world today, has only just begun to flex its muscles in Britain.

Alas, as the riots proved, WE DON’T HAVE A CLUE HOW TO POLICE THIS EMERGING LANDSCAPE – and, let’s face it, with Theresa May as Home Secretary, Ken Clarke as ‘Justice Secretary’ and the ultra-wimpish Liberal Democrats as Coalition partners, we’re not about to find out.”

"Demographic change, in contrast, can’t be undone by happy accidents."

It can only be undone by war. That is the legacy those who thought it would be neat to tinker savagely with the stable, secure, peaceful and contented peoples of the British Isles have left us.

"Let's import lots and lots of insecure, unstable, violent and discontented folk from societies that don't work into one that does and see what happens!"

That's what our own politicians, at the behest of the PC Crowd, the bankers, the businessmen and the global elite decided to do and they did. That's why we have what we have now.

Most of those politicians, full of university-bred, happy-clappy, other-worldly Marxist-Leninist b***ocks, childishly imagined they were inventing a socialist Utopia full of lovely, fluffy "coffee-coloured peoples by the score" who would all get along famously. Some, the creatures in the shadows who built the project and forced it forward, knew that hell on earth would result.

THEY have been at war with us forever. Their pet footsoldiers emerged from their gangland ghettoes and went to war with our tottering world a little while ago.

I guess some of us will go to war with THEM shortly. Which, I'm sure, is what THEY have always wanted.

THEY declared war upon Russia and Germany. And those countries were devastated as a result. THEY were never going to declare war upon us until the alien hordes were in place and the brainwash had emasculated most of us to the point where almost no one would be capable of fighting back.

That's how much respect THEY had for our ancestors.

That's who we once were. That is what we are no longer.

"Demographic change", drugs, dumbing-down and fifty years of politically correct, Marxist propaganda have changed us into something much more easy to manage and be done with.

On 25 August 2011, Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said this in The Guardian:

"The Labour government that passed the Human Rights Act then spent years trashing it, allowing a MYTH to take root that human rights are A FOREIGN INVENTION, UNWANTED HERE, A CHARTER FOR GREEDY LAWYERS AND MEDDLESOME BUREAUCRATS. This MYTH panders to a view that no rights… come without responsibilities; that criminals ought to forfeit their very humanity the moment they step out of line...

Those who need to make use of human rights laws… are nearly always people who are in the care of the state… They are often vulnerable, powerless, OR OUTSIDERS, and are sometimes PEOPLE FOR WHOM THE PUBLIC FEELS LITTLE SYMPATHY. But they are human beings, and our common humanity dictates that we treat them as such.

IT HAS LONG BEEN MY PARTY'S POLICY TO USE A BILL OF RIGHTS TO DEEPEN OUR COMMITMENT TO THE PROTECTIONS OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT...

But the biggest problem with the Human Rights Act is not how it operates in the courts, nor how it interacts with other rights. It is how it is manipulated not just by the media but by overcautious officials…

The more we perpetuate the myth that, in the words of Jack Straw, HUMAN RIGHTS ARE A ‘VILLAINS' CHARTER,’ the more those dealing with lawbreakers curtail their behaviour because of a general sense that rights trump common sense. THE FRIENDS OF HUMAN RIGHTS HAVE THE MOST TO GAIN IF WE GET A GRIP ON THIS…

So AS WE CONTINUE TO PROMOTE HUMAN RIGHTS ABROAD, WE MUST ENSURE WE WORK TO UPHOLD THEM HERE AT HOME.”

OK, hold your hands up all of you who believe that the “human rights” Act is “a foreign invention, unwanted here, a charter for greedy lawyers and meddlesome bureaucrats.”

Now, hands up all of you who think, as Nick Clegg does, that this is a myth.

OK, Nick Clegg, the PC crowd, “the friends of human rights” and the “unwanted” immigrant say “myth”, the rest of us don’t.

Who thinks “human rights are a ‘villains' charter’?”

Now, who thinks, as Nick Clegg does, that this is a myth?

Clegg, the PC crowd, “the friends of human rights” and the “unwanted” immigrant say “myth”, the rest of us do not.

“Outsiders… people for whom the public feels little sympathy… are human beings, and our common humanity dictates that we treat them as such.”

Hey, Nick! You know when you sneer contemptuously at the British Nationalist for wanting his own put first in the land that they made? Why are you so intent on refusing him the “common humanity” you are so happy to bestow upon “outsiders”? Why are you so disinclined to treat the British majority who, since the nineteen fifties, have told you repeatedly that they wanted no more immigrants entering their country, with the “common humanity” you so readily extend to the immigrant?

Ah right. Your Dutch mum and your Russian grandma were immigrants themselves.

Nick Clegg, a millionaire whose father was the Chairman of United Trust Bank and whose grandmother was a scion of the Russian nobility, is not the least bit interested in the problems and anxieties produced when an alien horde decends upon a working-class English neighbourhood.

Clegg’s wife, Miriam González Durántez, is a lawyer and the daughter of a Spanish senator.

Globalism works by promoting the alien above and beyond its native host.

A la Clegg and the Milibands. The Labour leader, Ed Miliband, and his brother, the former Foreign Secretary, are the sons of Polish-Jewish immigrants.

David Cameron’s great-great grandfather was also an immgrant Jew. He, like Clegg's father, also made good in banking.

On 25 August 2-11 the Immigration Minister Damian Green said this on ITV News:

"UNDER LABOUR BRITAIN HAD BECOME ADDICTED TO IMMIGRATION and getting someone off an an addiction takes time and patience and persistence."

No, Damian, Britain's wasn't addicted. New Labour, the Lib Dems, the PC Crowd, Big Business, Big Brother, the Global elite and the immigrants themselves were addicted.

We weren't.

On 24 August 2011, Allison Pearson’s essay, The law is 'avin a laugh – but the joke is on Britain, appeared in The Telegraph.

This said:

“EUROPE'S STAND ON HUMAN RIGHTS IS TOO OFTEN A KICK IN THE GUT FOR THE VICTIMS OF CRIME. 'They drive me mad, too.’ That’s what the Prime Minister told me in a more innocent time, before the riots. Back in April, I was sitting in Number 10, reading him a list of the human rights abuses that drive the public to despair. I don’t mean abuses under the Human Rights Act 1998. I mean abuses of the rights of humans whose CHILDREN HAVE BEEN MOWN DOWN BY FOREIGN DRIVERS WITH NO LICENCE, humans whose HUSBANDS HAVE BEEN STABBED TO DEATH. Humans still astounded by grief who have to attend a British court and hear a judge tell them that THE CONSCIENCELESS WRETCH WHO EXTINGUISHED THEIR HAPPINESS CANNOT BE DEPORTED post haste or hurled, preferably, over the white cliffs of Dover. No, THE WRETCH MUST BE ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO ‘A FAMILY LIFE’.

I keep a shoebox stuffed with newspaper cuttings about such cases. They bring to mind the Ricky Gervais catchphrase, Are you ’avin a laugh? On Saturday, I added another surreal snippet to the pile. THE COURT OF APPEAL IN ITS WISDOM HAD JUST TORN UP POWERS THAT ALLOWED JUDGES TO BAN CONVICTED PAEDOPHILES FROM UNFETTERED ACCESS TO THEIR CHILDREN… Are their honours ’avin a laugh?

Our judges’ ever-widening definition of what constitutes family life almost dislocated my jaw recently when A BOLIVIAN IMMIGRANT ESCAPED DEPORTATION BECAUSE HE OWNED A PET CAT WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND… Judge Judith Gleeson joked that the cat need no longer fear having to adapt to Bolivian mice. Was she ’avin a laugh?

Why are we powerless to send these frightening, violent individuals back to where they came from? Because, according to the European Court, it’s too frightening and violent. Anything I’m missing here, chaps? Are our learned friends in Strasbourg ’avin a laugh? If so, there is no longer a shred of doubt that THE JOKE IS ON THE BRITISH PEOPLE…

The riots have made scrapping the Human Rights Act more urgent. More than 150 people born abroad have been arrested so far. Immigration minister Damian Green said: ‘We strongly believe that foreign national lawbreakers should be removed from the UK at the earliest opportunity.’ Good luck with that, Damian. You do realise the poor darlings can’t possibly leave the country, don’t you? They’ve got pussy cats to look after and drug addicts to supply.

While JUDGES INCREASINGLY WARP ARTICLE 8 OF THE CONVENTION IN FAVOUR OF VILLAINS, why do they never seem to consider the right to a family life of people like Frances Lawrence and the four children she had with headmaster Philip? In 2007, the Home Office failed to secure the deportation of Learco Chindamo, Mr Lawrence’s murderer. AN ASYLUM AND IMMIGRATION TRIBUNAL INSISTED THAT TO DEPORT THE ITALIAN-FILIPINO WOULD BREACH HIS HUMAN RIGHTS. LIKE PAUL BESHENIVSKY, FRANCES LAWRENCE WAS AGHAST TO DISCOVER THAT THE NEEDS OF HER SPOUSE’S KILLER OUTWEIGHED THOSE OF HER BEREFT FAMILY.

Chindamo… like so many, had been emboldened by the knowledge that WRONGS, HOWEVER GRIEVOUS, WILL NEVER PREVENT HIM HAVING HUMAN RIGHTS ON HIS SIDE. HE IS ONE OF THOUSANDS OF FOREIGN-BORN CRIMINALS WHO HAVE HUMILIATED THE HOME OFFICE AND WHO HAVE SHOWN WITH BRUTAL CLARITY THAT THE LAW OF THE LAND IS NOT OURS, FOR WHAT BRITON IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD PUT THE DOMESTIC COMFORT OF A MURDERER BEFORE THE SAFETY OF THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS?

This is what Cameron was getting at in his forceful speech following the riots… ‘I am determined we get a grip on the twisting and misrepresenting of human rights’, (he said). Three cheers for those noble words, Prime Minister, but WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

IN OPPOSITION, CAMERON PLEDGED TO SCRAP THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT SO WE CAN THROW FOREIGN TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY. When I asked him about it in April, he looked exasperated… THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT. He assured me the Government was setting up a commission to look into a British Bill of Rights. What he omitted to tell me was that NICK CLEGG WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF IT… Tensions in the Coalition are said to be running high with SENIOR LIB DEMS WARNING THE PM NOT TO WATER DOWN BRITAIN’S COMMITMENT TO HUMAN RIGHTS.”

On 24 August 2011, James Rhodes commented thus in The Telegraph:

“The X Factor encourages us to laugh at the emotionally fragile. Are we really OK with that?”

Lots are, James.

And, as well as having us take the mick out the deranged, they've got the stupid thinking their own kith and kin are the bad guys! It's all part of the dumb-them-down, drug-them-up and destroy-their ability-to-empathise PC process so beloved of the New World Order's dehumanising unit.

“Back in the 18th and early 19th centuries, visits to Bedlam were considered a grand day out. The infamous psychiatric hospital was the Alton Towers of the Victorian era. For a penny you could gawp and laugh at the mentally ill and boy was it popular – in 1814 there were 96,000 visitors. Fast forward nearly 200 years, and far from the progress one might have expected, that number has increased a hundredfold. Every Saturday night countless millions settle down on the sofa, smartphones in hand, to cast a gloating eye over the parade of emotionally fragile people who march on to the X Factor stage, convinced in their delusion that they are the next Britney Spears...

And we lap it up… We tweet with glee at the examples of apparent madness on display, chant our approval at the judges’ scorn and laugh as the audience boos them off the stage amidst hoots of derision.

WE ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED… TO ENGAGE IN LEVITY OR HUMOUR WHEN IT COMES TO MINORITIES. CRACKING JOKES OR EVEN VOICING OPINIONS ABOUT JEWS, BLACKS, HOMOSEXUALS OR THE DISABLED ARE OFF LIMITS DURING OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE, AND SHOULD EVEN VAGUELY POLITICALLY INCORRECT OPINIONS EVER BE MADE PUBLIC THEY ARE SLAPPED DOWN, HEADS ROLL AND PEOPLE GET FIRED. The PC brigade thoughtfully looks after women too: a friend of mine works in a bank where HE WILL NOT COMPLIMENT A CO-WORKER ON HER NEW HAIRCUT IN CASE HE IS FIRED FOR SEXUAL HARASSMENT.”

Brilliantly well noticed, James!

I trust you, like us, are sick to death of the PC fashion of the times and want those who espouse it flogged and those who invented it executed?

“It seems that the last subsection of our society that is fair game are the mentally ill. ‘Mental’ is commonly used as a description of everything from traffic conditions and the weather to the kid in the playground offering up nonconformist opinions and the dude sitting by the cashpoint mumbling to himself. It’s endorsed on TV where shows like Big Brother, X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent routinely offer us meltdowns and breakdowns to appease our insatiable rubbernecking…

Where I draw the line, though, is at the mob mentality of ridicule and contempt that appears every week on our television screens, where it’s given a veneer of acceptance because millionaire rock stars are taking part and giant FTSE 100 companies are paying for ad space.”

On 24 August 2011, Kevin Maguire said this in The Daily Mirror:

"Moneybags Peter Mandelson has a cheek to argue his potential £8million purchase of a London pile is no one else’s concern. HE’S A LAWMAKER IN THIS COUNTRY, OF THE UNELECTED ERMINE VARIETY in the House of Cronies, so it IS our business.

I recall him once adopting a similarly lofty tone TO HIDE A £373,000 CUT-PRICE HOME LOAN FROM A MINISTER HIS DEPARTMENT WAS INVESTIGATING. So the double resigner from Cabinets should get off his high horse and answer questions about how he won the lottery without buying a ticket.

The champagne socialist may believe he’s entitled to a four-storey mock-Gothic pad to entertain billionaire chums. Mandelson is certainly relaxed about getting filthy rich. But if he’s attracting the cash, the wheeler-dealer should stop whingeing about attracting attention because A TINY FEW, INCLUDING MANDY THE MILLIONAIRE, DID CONSIDERABLY BETTER OUT OF NEW LABOUR THAN THE MILLIONS WHO VOTED LABOUR.”

Well said, Kev.

On 23 August 2011, Businessweek quoted former Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan, who was speaking at the Innovation Nation Forum in Washington, thus:

“THE EURO IS BREAKING DOWN AND THE PROCESS OF ITS BREAKING DOWN IS CREATING VERY CONSIDERABLE DIFFICULTIES IN THE EUROPEAN BANKING SYSTEM…

The problem is that there is a growing cleavage in the economic and analytical and banking circles as to whether the Euro, which is the crucial issue here, should be 17 countries with very significantly different cultures.”

On 23 August 2011, Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, said this during a question-and-answer session at the Innovation Nation Forum in Washington:

"THE EURO IS BREAKING DOWN AND THE PROCESS OF ITS BREAKING DOWN IS CREATING VERY CONSIDERABLE DIFFICULTIES IN THE EUROPEAN BANKING SYSTEM. That stuff [eurozone bonds held by banks] has always been thought of as the ideal collateral and now it’s getting highly questionable.

The problem is that there is a growing cleavage in the economic and analytical and banking circles as to whether the euro, which is the crucial issue here, should be 17 countries with very significantly different cultures ... THAT CANNOT GO ON. The general feeling out there is of A LULL BEFORE THE STORM."

On 23 August 2011, Conservative MP, Douglas Carswell, said this:

“As the credit crunch came along in 2007... I was all of a sudden able to see what caused the financial crisis. FOR TOO LONG I HAD MISTAKEN BIG BUSINESS INTERESTS WITH THE FREE MARKET. Too many Conservatives still do. Just as I was starting to lose faith in OUR ROTTEN WESTMINISTER SYSTEM on account of my being in the House of Commons, I BEGAN TO REALISE THE EXTENT TO WHICH BIG, UNACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT COLLUDES WITH BIG BUSINESS TO PRODUCE A PROFOUNDLY ILLIBERAL AND ANTI-FREE MARKET CORPORATISM.

From the scandal of defence procurement to the bailing out of bankers to the stupidity of Eurozone officials, there seems to be a common problem. TOO MUCH POWER IS VESTED IN THE HANDS OF REMOTE AND UNACCOUNTABLE ELITES. TOO MANY VESTED INTERESTS ARE ABLE TO SHAPE AND TWIST PUBLIC POLICY FOR THEIR OWN DESIGNS - USUALLLY AT OUR EXPENSE.”

On 22 August 2011, Philip Johnson said this in The Telegraph:

"Arguably, THE PRESENCE OF SO MANY PUBLIC CCTV CAMERAS HAS EXACERBATED THE PROBLEMS OF LAWLESSNESS that we face in parts of our inner cities because THEY HAVE REPLACED THE POLICE. The primary purpose of CCTV, after all, is not to record crime but to prevent it. If we are to be more snooped upon than any other nation this side of Pyongyang then the surveillance must perform that elementary task. But IN LARGE PART IT DOESN’T.

THERE ARE MORE CAMERAS IN THIS COUNTRY THAN IN THE REST OF EUROPE COMBINED. It is not known for sure how many precisely, although the best guesses are between four and five million. In the course of a typical day, the average city-dweller can expect to be filmed at least eight times…

It is not just the capital that is in thrall to CCTV, but even the most far-flung parts of our nation. Shetland Islands council has 101 cameras… 30 MORE THAN THE ENTIRE SAN FRANCISCO POLICE DEPARTMENT. EIGHT BRITISH CITIES HAVE MORE CAMERAS THAN THE AUTHORITIES IN PARIS. THE LONDON BOROUGH OF WANDSWORTH HAS AS MANY (1,113) AS DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL, THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS OF JOHANNESBURG AND BOSTON AND THE CITY OF SYDNEY AUTHORITY COMBINED...

The problem with the cameras is that they encourage a false sense of security; people assume that their presence makes them safer, but THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS SO. ROUTINE PATROLLING BY POLICE OFFICERS IS FAR MORE EFFECTIVE – yet the RAPID CCTV EXPANSION OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS OR SO HAS COINCIDED WITH A PALPABLE DECLINE IN BEAT POLICING…

Since it is such a gratuitous invasion of privacy, it can only be justified if the crime-busting benefits outweigh the extent of the intrusion. But THEY DON’T. CRIME IS FAR HIGHER IN THIS COUNTRY THAN IN MOST OTHER EUROPEAN STATES – WHERE THERE ARE VERY FEW CAMERAS BUT LOTS OF POLICE OFFICERS ON THE STREETS.

The technology itself and the use to which it is put, is also suspect. As Mick Neville, then in charge of the Met’s CCTV unit, told a conference a few years ago: ‘Billions of pounds has been spent on kit, but no thought has gone into how the police are going to use the images and how they will be used in court. IT’S BEEN AN UTTER FIASCO: ONLY 3 PER CENT OF CRIMES WERE SOLVED BY CCTV. There’s no fear of CCTV’…

Cameras… are little deterrent to street violence… Dover council introduced cameras in 1993. After 12 years, they found that… public disorder and crimes of violence had almost trebled… In 2004, a Home Office inquiry by a team from Leicester University, which examined 14 CCTV systems, found that only one had really cut crime. That was in a car park. The others, they concluded “had no overall effect on crime”. Yet, instead of accepting that it may not be the best form of crime control, more money is being spent on digitising CCTV.

The fact is that if it was half as effective as its proponents say it is, then the rest of the world would be just as festooned with cameras as we are. Yet THE UK HAS FAR AND AWAY MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY, WHETHER DEMOCRATIC OR DESPOTIC.”

Big Brother is watching us!

Except when they riot against his system, he couldn’t care less about watching the criminals!

On 22 August 2011, Charles Moore reviewed the BBC programme, The Reunion, in The Telegraph. [/I]

When will the BBC ever tell the truth about Anthony Blunt? told us this:

"The Courtauld Institute was once the best place in Britain to study the history of art. But its director, Anthony Blunt, had, earlier in his life, spied for the Soviet Union. He was the "Fourth Man" in the ring with Burgess, Maclean and Philby. He confessed to the British intelligence services in 1964 (having repeatedly denied all the accusations over many years). The information was kept quiet, partly because he was Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures. In 1979, he was publicly exposed, stripped of his knighthood and disgraced.

The Reunion brought together five distinguished people who had studied under Blunt. They included the director of the British Museum Neil MacGregor, the novelist Anita Brookner and the critic Brian Sewell. All five agreed what a wonderful chap Blunt was... and all said how appalling it was that Blunt had been attacked by the press after his exposure...

We were told only in the thinnest outline what Blunt himself had done to others. In the mid-Thirties, he began working for the NKVD (the forerunner of the KGB), and helped recruit other British agents for them. It is often alleged that people in the West at that time had no means of knowing what Stalin was up to. This was not the case. Malcolm Muggeridge, attacked on this programme for attacking Blunt, went to the Ukraine in 1933 and reported – in this paper's sister, The Morning Post – that millions were starving there as a deliberate act of Stalin's policy...

Much was made, particularly by Brian Sewell, of the claim that the threat of fascism was so great in the Thirties that Communism seemed the only way. This does great injustice to all those – the majority of the population – who detested both. If Sewell is right, why did Blunt, Philby, Burgess etc continue to work for Stalin after he made his pact with Hitler, which lasted from 1939 to 1941, the time of greatest danger for Britain? And why did Blunt continue to shelter Burgess, Maclean and Philby from discovery after the war, when Nazism had been defeated and the Soviet Union was the deadly enemy of the West?

As for Blunt's acts of spying, these were brushed aside by the programme on the grounds that there had been "very exaggerated estimates" of the number of people who had died as a result of his actions. His treachery, said another former pupil, Michael Jacobs, had been "a minor and ultimately irrelevant aspect of his life"...

What was disgraceful, though, was the structure of the programme. For many, The Reunion's version may be the first they have heard of the subject. It is the duty of the BBC to apply to history the impartiality on which its Charter insists. Yet, as with the same programme's treatment of the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots (which this column criticised on March 28), the entire panel was on the same side. Blunt was a virtually innocent victim, we were told, and the only villain was the press.

Sue MacGregor explained that Blunt "made no secret of his Marxist beliefs". This was perfectly irrelevant. The issue in his story was not his beliefs, but his treachery, which, by definition, was secret. He pretended that he was a normal British citizen and, during the war, a loyal officer of MI5, but in fact he was working for a murderous tyranny...

The Reunion propagated the theory that spying for the Soviets in the Thirties and Forties was nothing worse than an excess of zeal. This is a shocking untruth. Hitler and Stalin were moral equivalents. Indeed, at the time when Blunt signed up for the Soviet Union, Stalin had actually killed far more people than Hitler.[/quote]

I introduced a comment underneath the article.

Bits of it were edited out by the censor but not the Kaganovich info, which I'm sure, was left in by mistake. The censored material is capitalised in the text below.

"Good article, Charlie. Here's a little more of the kind of truth the BBC will never tell you about. Let's take the traitors first.

BURGESS AND BLUNT WERE GAY. MACLEAN, WHOSE DAD WAS ONCE THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION IN WESTMINSTER, WAS BI-SEXUAL. SOON AFTER KIM PHILBY MARRIED THE AUSTRIAN COMMUNIST, LITZI FRIEDMANN, HE WAS RECRUITED BY THE SOVIET'S NKVD. FRIEDMANN WAS JEWISH.

OF THE FOUR NAMED "REUNION" STUDENTS, NEIL MACGREGOR IS GAY, BRIAN SEWELL IS AT THE GAY EDGE OF BI-SEXUALITY; ANITA BRUCKNER IS A SECOND-GENERATION JEWISH IMMIGRANT AND MICHAEL JACOBS IS AN ITALIAN-BORN TRAVEL-WRITER WHO LIVES IN SPAIN, WRITES FOR THE GUARDIAN AND DECRIBES HIMSELF AS A JEWISH CATHOLIC.

Are we beginning to detect a theme here?

The fifth "Reunion" participant, Anna Somers Cocks, is married to an Italian chap, spends half her time over there, and in her article, "Diversity in Difficult Times", says this in the opening paragraph:

"Let's start with essentials. Racism, or excluding people merely on the grounds that they are different, is unacceptable... The law provides the discipline within which this cultural change is taking place."

So, the five who were chosen to comment upon the traitor, weren't exactly the most representative examples of olde England that that the programme-makers could have come up with. On the other hand they were absolutely typical of the type of off-the-wall opinion-formers so adored by the nu Brit-loathing BBC.

"Malcolm Muggeridge... went to the Ukraine in 1933 and reported... that millions were starving there as a deliberate act of Stalin's policy."

Between seven and ten million people lost their lives as a result of this genocidal "policy." Does no one wonder why they have never heard of the Ukranian Holodomor? A "holocaust" much greater than the one that followed? Here's a clue: the chief architect of the Holodomor was one Lazar Kaganovich. He was a Jewish gent.

PS. In a 14 September 2006 edition of his sitcom, 'Extras,' Keith Chegwin puts this question to Ricky Gervaise's character, Andy Millman:

"THE BBC - STILL RUN BY JEWS AND QUEERS, IS IT?"

Out of the mouths of fools, babes and Ricky Gervaise characters, eh?"

On 22 August 2011, Stephen Glover said this in The Daily Mail:

“Tony Blair and New Labour failed to address the social ills that lay behind the unprecedentedly extensive civil unrest… THEY DID NOT MERELY ALLOW PROBLEMS TO FESTER BUT, AS A RESULT OF SEVERAL SHORT-SIGHTED POLITICAL DECISIONS, CONTRIVED TO MAKE THEM WORSE…

The former Prime Minister was surely correct in writing that ‘many of the people are from families that are profoundly dysfunctional, operating on completely different terms from the rest of society, either middle-class or poor’. He says at the end of his time in government he had come to realise that the solution was intervention, family by family… But WASN’T IT A BIT LATE IN THE DAY, AFTER TEN LONG YEARS IN GOVERNMENT, FOR MR BLAIR TO HAVE WOKEN UP TO THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM?… A more self-aware man would have apologised for leaving reform so late, and then not achieving it. But there are no apologies from Mr Blair…

In any case, there is a danger in locating the root cause of the violence, as Mr Blair does, in a small number of families. There has been enough evidence coming out of the courts over the past week to suggest that at least some of the rioters and looters came from backgrounds which in economic terms are relatively privileged… That implies to me that there was a wider ‘moral failure’ which David Cameron has rightly identified, but whose very existence Mr Blair questions in his article.

It suits him, of course, to deny that there is some sort of general moral decline or a ‘broken society’ because NEW LABOUR SO MANIFESTLY FAILED TO ADDRESS THESE PROBLEMS DURING ITS 13 YEARS IN OFFICE. Far better, from Mr Blair’s point of view, to pretend they don’t exist. If he had been honest, he would have examined the consequences of his failure to live up to the priorities he set himself before taking office when he said that what mattered was ‘education, education, education’…

More damagingly still, during those boom years Mr Blair and, both as Chancellor and later as Prime Minister, Mr Brown failed to get members of the so-called underclass into work. Nearly all THE 1.67 MILLION JOBS CREATED BETWEEN 1997 AND 2010 WENT TO NEW IMMIGRANTS…

It has been plausibly alleged that NEW LABOUR AT LEAST PARTLY ENCOURAGED MASS IMMIGRATION IN THE HOPE OF BUILDING UP ITS ELECTORAL BASE, MOST FIRST-GENERATION IMMIGRANTS BEING INCLINED TO VOTE LABOUR. However calculating or otherwise the process may have been, the result was that MILLIONS OF MEMBERS OF THE UNDERCLASS WERE TRAPPED IN ONE SORT OF WELFARE OR ANOTHER WHEN THEY COULD, AND SHOULD, HAVE BEEN PUSHED INTO WORK…

Unsurprisingly, this near-catastrophic social failure is not even touched on by Mr Blair in his article. Can anyone doubt that the ‘alienated and disaffected youth’ to which he refers thrived in this workless and welfare-dependent environment?… Meanwhile, BARELY-REGULATED BANKS BUILT UP UNSUSTAINABLE DEBTS, AND THE RICHEST BANKERS MADE HAY. Mr Blair dismisses the idea in his piece that the terrible example they offered could have had any effect on the unrest, but it seems plausible that THE FREEWHEELING GREED OF THE CITY BANKERS, few if any of whom have accepted responsibility for what they did, became infectious.

Incidentally, how fitting that we should learn at this moment that PETER MANDELSON, THE APOSTLE OF THE CONVICTION THAT WEALTH IS ALWAYS GOOD, AND THE ASSOCIATE OF BILLIONAIRES, SHOULD BE BUYING AN £8 MILLION HOUSE IN LONDON. WHERE THIS MEMBER OF THE TRIUMVIRATE WHICH FOUNDED NEW LABOUR GOT THE MONEY FROM, GOD ALONE KNOWS, BUT THERE IS A NICE SYMBOLISM, AS THERE IS IN MR BLAIR’S DESPERATE ACQUISITION OF EVER GREATER RICHES...

Hearing Tony Blair’s unself-critical voice again, I am relieved that he is not going to be called upon to put it right.”

On 21 August 2001, Larry Derfner, a senior Jerusalem Post journalist, wrote this the newspaper’s blog:

“I think a lot of people who realize that THE OCCUPATION IS WRONG also realize that THE PALESTINIANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO RESIST IT – TO USE VIOLENCE AGAINST ISRAELIS, EVEN TO KILL ISRAELIS, ESPECIALLY WHEN ISRAEL IS SHOWING ZERO WILLINGNESS TO END THE OCCUPATION, which has been the case since the Netanyahu government took over.

But people don’t want to say this, especially right after a terror attack like this last one that killed eight Israelis near Eilat… But I think it’s time to overcome this reticence, even at the cost of enflaming the already enflamed sensitivities of the Israeli public, because this unwillingness to say outright that PALESTINIANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIGHT THE OCCUPATION, especially now, inadvertently helps keep the occupation going.

When we say that THE OCCUPATION IS A TERRIBLE INJUSTICE TO THE PALESTINIANS, but then say that Palestinian terror/resistance is a terrible injustice to Israel, we’re saying something that’s patently illogical to anyone but a pacifist, and there aren’t many pacifists left, certainly not in Israel. The logical, non-pacifist mind concludes that both of those statements can’t be true – that IF A IS HURTING B AND WON’T STOP, THEN B DAMN SURE HAS THE RIGHT TO HURT A TO TRY TO MAKE HIM STOP.

But if everybody, not only the Right but the Left, too, is saying that B, the Palestinians, don’t have the right to hurt A, the Israelis, then the logical mind concludes that Israel must not be hurting the Palestinians after all, the occupation must not be so bad, the occupation must not be hurting the Palestinians at all - because if it was, they would have the right to hurt us back, and everybody agrees that they don’t. So when they shoot at us or fire rockets at us, it’s completely unprovoked, which gives us the right, the duty, to bash them and bash them until they stop – and anybody who tries to deny us that right doesn’t have a leg to stand on, so WE’RE JUST GOING TO KEEP RIGHT ON BASHING THEM. And when the Palestinians complain about the occupation, we Israelis can honestly say we don’t know what they’re talking about...

But if, on the other hand, we were to say very forthrightly what many of us believe and the rest of us suspect – that THE PALESTINIANS, LIKE EVERY NATION LIVING UNDER HOSTILE RULE, HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIGHT BACK, THAT THEIR TERRORISM, ESPECIALLY IN THE FACE OF A REJECTIONIST ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, IS JUSTIFIED – what effect would that have?…

If those who oppose the occupation acknowledged publicly that it justifies Palestinian terrorism, then those who support the occupation would have to explain why it doesn’t. And that’s not easy for a nation that sanctifies the right to self-defense; A NATION THAT ELECTED IRGUN LEADER MENACHEM BEGIN AND LEHI LEADER YITZHAK SHAMIR AS PRIME MINISTER.

But WHILE I THINK THE PALESTINIANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE TERRORISM AGAINST US, I don’t want them to use it, I don’t want to see Israelis killed, and as an Israeli, I would do whatever was necessary to stop a Palestinian, oppressed or not, from killing one of my countrymen…

What’s needed very badly, however, is for ISRAELIS TO REALIZE THAT THE OCCUPATION IS HURTING THE PALESTINIANS TERRIBLY, THAT IT’S DRIVING THEM TO TRY TO KILL US, THAT WE ARE COMPELLING THEM TO ENGAGE IN TERRORISM, THAT THE BLOOD OF ISRAELI VICTIMS IS ULTIMATELY ON OUR HANDS, AND THAT IT’S UP TO US TO STOP PROVOKING OUR OWN PEOPLE’S MURDER BY ENDING THE OCCUPATION. AND SO LONG AS WE WHO OPPOSE THE OCCUPATION KEEP PRETENDING THAT THE PALESTINIANS DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO RESIST IT, WE TACITLY ENCOURAGE ISRAELIS TO GO ON BLINDLY KILLING AND DYING IN DEFENSE OF AN UNHOLY CAUSE.

And by tacitly encouraging Israelis in their blindness, I think we endanger their lives and ours, their country and ours…

The mental and moral paralysis in this country must be broken. Whoever the Palestinians were who killed the eight Israelis near Eilat last week, however vile their ideology was, THEY WERE JUSTIFIED TO ATTACK. THEY HAD THE SAME RIGHT TO FIGHT FOR THEIR FREEDOM AS ANY OTHER UNFREE NATION IN HISTORY EVER HAD. AND JUST LIKE EVERY HARSH, UNJUST GOVERNMENT IN HISTORY BEARS THE BLAME FOR THE DEATHS OF ITS OWN PEOPLE AT THE HANDS OF REBELS, SO ISRAEL, WHICH RULES THE PALESTINIANS HARSHLY AND UNJUSTLY, IS TO BLAME FOR THOSE EIGHT ISRAELI DEATHS – AS WELL AS FOR EVERY OTHER ISRAELI DEATH THAT OCCURRED WHEN THIS COUNTRY WAS OFFERING THE PALESTINIANS NO OTHER WAY TO FREEDOM.”

Powerful stuff, Mr Derfner.

The moral majority congratulate you for daring to tell such off-limits truth.

Subsequent to this article being written, The Jerusalem Post sacked Larry Derfner.

On 21 August 2011, Press TV quoted the narrator of the BBC Persia programme Cinematograph thus:

Press TV explained:

“The BBC Persian TV channel has at last acknowledged THE ROLE OF THE BBC PERSIAN RADIO IN THE TOPPLING OF THE DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT OF IRAN IN THE 1953 COUP. The coup overthrew the government of the then Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh leading to the restoration of absolute monarchy under dictator Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi who was later toppled in the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

In a documentary aired on August 18 on the anniversary of the coup, BBC Persian channel admitted for the first time to the role of the BBC PERSIAN RADIO AS THE PROPAGANDA ARM OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IN IRAN… Cinematograph detailed how the radio network broadcast anti- Mosaddegh programs to undermine his government.

Britain had lost its power as a world empire after the World War II and Mosaddegh's efforts to nationalize Iran's oil industry, which bore fruit on March 19, 1951, meant Britain lost one of the most important resources it formerly controlled… the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company.”

On 21 August 2011, Mark Seddon said this in The Daily Mail:

“Just as the country’s politicians were caught napping when the riots broke out, they were caught dozing when key decisions affecting the world economy were taken this week by Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France…

As the single currency system implodes under the inherent folly of a ‘one size fits all’ financial system, Merkel and Sarkozy have finally realised that the only sane solution is TO GUIDE THEIR CREAKING EUROZONE COUNTRIES INTO FISCAL AND POLITICAL UNION. THEY HAVE DECIDED TO CREATE, IN EFFECT, A NEW ‘EUROZONE GOVERNMENT’ and in doing so have dramatically dismissed worries about THE THREAT TO NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY this entails…

Why haven’t we heard from Messrs Cameron, Clegg and Miliband as these huge decisions are taken?…

We and other non-Eurozone countries in the EU must, if necessary, contribute billions to any bail-outs. So British taxpayers have already coughed up huge sums to rescue Ireland and Greece. What’s more, the Merkel/Sarkozy decision means British taxpayers risk having to pay even more money to bail out other bankrupt Eurozone countries.

This is an issue of incalculable importance. So WHY AREN’T BRITISH POLITICIANS QUEUING UP TO DEFEND US TAXPAYERS FROM HAVING OUR MONEY SPENT TO SAVE OTHER COUNTRIES FROM THE RESULTS OF THEIR OWN RECKLESS ECONOMIC POLICIES?… Do we assume they are happy that the unaccountable European Central Bank is now dictating economic policies across the Eurozone?…

A decade on from the creation of the euro (SOMETHING THAT NOT A SINGLE EUROPEAN COUNTRY VOTED FOR explicitly in a referendum), it is obvious that attempts to yoke together hugely divergent economies (such as HEALTHY GERMANY AND BASKET-CASE GREECE) have become AN UNMITIGATED DISASTER…

As for the British public, a majority of voters of all parties have remained lukewarm when confronted by the enthusiasm expressed towards the European superstate by so much of our ruling elite. Indeed, Labour chiefs were surprised when a recent internal party survey of voter attitudes showed that a majority of Labour supporters are deeply sceptical about the EU. Such views are much stronger among grassroot Tories. So why does a Tory-led Coalition Government give more than £8.3 billion net every year to the EU, while this country has less than 10 per cent of the vote in EU institutions?

It has been calculated that 80 per cent of laws in Germany now emanate from EU directives and regulations. THE SAME MUST BE TRUE OF BRITAIN. This being the case, it is not surprising that our OWN PARLIAMENT BEGINS TO LOOK LIKE A COUNTY COUNCIL — BECAUSE REAL POWER NOW LIES ELSEWHERE.

When I was a member of Labour’s National Executive Committee, I used to ask Tony Blair why his Government was preparing to privatise the Post Office. He blamed this on the fact that WE HAD TO CONFORM TO EUROPEAN COMPETITION POLICY. This is the same reason why the British Government awarded a major contract to a German company rather than to the Derby-based train-maker Bombardier, with THE RESULTANT LOSS OF 1,400 JOBS. The decision to place the order abroad was blamed on the way OUR GOVERNMENT HAD DRAWN UP PROCUREMENT CONTRACTS TO COMPLY WITH EU TRADE RULES AND WHICH HAD PUT BRITISH INTERESTS AT A DISADVANTAGE…

Britain has a stark choice: we can either elect politicians who we can hold to account, or WE CAN LET FACELESS EUROPEAN BUREAUCRATS AND THEIR UNELECTED CRONIES DICTATE.”

On 21 August 2011, David Cameron was quoted thus by The Daily Express:

“What is clear in the aftermath of these riots is that we don’t just need to reclaim our streets, we need to reclaim our society. THE GREED AND THUGGERY WE SAW DURING THE RIOTS DID NOT COME OUT OF NOWHERE. THERE ARE DEEP PROBLEMS IN OUR SOCIETY THAT HAVE BEEN GROWING FOR A LONG TIME: A DECLINE IN RESPONSIBILITY, A RISE IN SELFISHNESS, a growing sense that individual rights come before anything else.

So now WE NEED A CONCERTED FIGHTBACK AGAINST THE WRONG-HEADED IDEAS, BUREAUCRATIC NONSENSE AND DESTRUCTIVE CULTURE THAT HAVE LED US TO THIS…

THE BRITISH PEOPLE HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED FOR PEOPLE’S RIGHTS TO FREEDOM AND DIGNITY BUT THEY DID NOT FIGHT SO THAT PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. So though it won’t be easy, though IT WILL MEAN TAKING ON PARTS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT, I am determined we get a grip on the misrepresentation of human rights…

We are going to fight in Europe for changes to the way the European Court works and we will fight to ensure people… do not use them as cover for rules or excuses that fly in the face of common sense. Above all, a social fightback means instilling in our children and young people the decency, discipline and sense of duty that make good citizens…

I make no apology for talking about the importance of family and marriage… Family is back at the top of the agenda.

Children also learn values in schools. Every school should be a place where children learn manners and morals but that is only possible when there is order in the classroom. So we are taking action to restore authority and boundaries, with teachers able to discipline pupils as they see fit and heads having the freedom to set uniform and behaviour policies and enforce them…

We see events as shocking as the riots and so many young people whose lives have no shape beyond the shape of their gang, no purpose beyond the next time they get smashed on drink or drugs… Real fulfilment comes not from trashing things or being selfish but by building things and working with others.”

Fine words, Mr Cameron. Do you think those who own you will let you implement them?

On 20 August 2011, Jenny McCartney said this in The Telegraph:

“The Murdoch empire’s attempts to contain information are collapsing. Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator at the heart of the hacking, has been told by a court to reveal precisely who instructed him to break into certain named voicemail accounts. Mr Mulcaire is reportedly suing his former employers, in a desperate bid to compel News International to continue to pay his legal fees.

An internal letter from Clive Goodman, the disgraced former royal editor of the News of the World, has come to light, alleging that PHONE-HACKING WAS WIDELY DISCUSSED IN NEWS CONFERENCES until the editor banned explicit reference to it. Shortly afterwards, James Desborough, an award-winning former NotW reporter who later went to work for the paper in Los Angeles, was arrested…

That whiff of imperilled morality, of poor judgments soggy with self-interest, has grown stronger with news of each institution brushed by the scandal. Like a probing finger in a rickety house, it reveals rot wherever it pushes. It has touched the Government, where David Cameron has repeatedly been forced to justify why he employed the News of the World’s former editor, Andy Coulson, as his press secretary. It has revealed corruption within the police, and claimed the scalp of Sir Paul Stephenson, former Metropolitan Police Commissioner. In its exposure of a reckless culture of law-breaking within sections of journalism, it has dented faith in the Fourth Estate. Of the institutions that loosely constitute the British establishment…

It is worth remembering that the British public… first became truly exercised at the point when it was revealed that the mobile phone of the teenage murder victim Milly Dowler had been hacked. About the broken privacy of celebrities, the public had been relatively sanguine: the visceral anger was triggered, not by the fact of illegality, but by the perception of A FRESH LOW IN MORALITY…

The phone-hacking furore, and the moral mush it has exposed, has done one thing very well: pointed up just how powerfully we need somebody – anybody – to trust.”

On 20 August 2011, Tony Blair said this in The Observer:

"The big cause (of the riots) is the group of alienated, disaffected youth who are outside the social mainstream and who live in a culture at odds with any canons of proper behaviour.”

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/aug/20/englands-riots-tony-blair

It is A big cause, Tony.

It is not THE big cause. THE biggest causes of ‘alienated disaffected youth’ would be the mass importation of those likely to become ‘alienated' and ‘disaffected‘ a little way down the line.

“In witnessing the lifestyles these individuals have, I found two things came together. First, there was a legal system overwhelmed by the nature of the crime committed by these young people, buttressed as it is by gangs and organised crime. Second, these individuals did not simply have an individual problem. THEY HAD A FAMILY PROBLEM.”

They did.

So many of those the politicians were bringing over thought that fatherhood was all about breeding as many children as possible with as many women as possible and taking responsibility for none of them.

“Many of these people are from families that are profoundly dysfunctional operating on completely different terms from the rest of society.”

Correct.

“This is a phenomenon of the late 20th century.”

A phenomenon of the mid 20th century onwards, actually.

“You find it in virtually every developed nation.”

You do.

“Breaking it down isn't about general policy or traditional programmes of investment or treatment.”

Correct.

“The left says they're victims of social deprivation.”

The left is full of sh*t.

“The right says they need to take personal responsibility for their actions.”

How to make them take responsibility for their actions, that’s the thing.

“A conventional social programme won't help them.”

It won’t.

And, just for the record, most of us aren’t the least bit inclined to 'help them,' Tony.

“Neither, on its own, will tougher penalties.”

The kind of 'tougher penalities' needed (birch, chain gang, execution, deportation) would never be considered by the Blairs, Browns, Camerons and Cleggs.

“The key is to understand that they aren't symptomatic of society at large.”

They aren't 'symptomatic of the majority, that’s for sure.

But they are symptomatic of some of your most favoured bits of society, aren’t they, Tony?

“Britain as a whole is not in the grip of some general 'moral decline’.”

You’re right.

But your ‘most-favoured bits’ and some of their white, working-class copycats are getting more brazen about their happy alienation from ‘society at large’ aren’t they, Tony?

“By the end of my time as prime minister, I concluded that the solution was specific and quite different from conventional policy. WE HAD TO BE PREPARED TO INTERVENE LITERALLY FAMILY BY FAMILY AND AT AN EARLY STAGE, EVEN BEFORE ANY CRIMINALITY HAD OCCURRED.”

Even more social engineering, Tony?

Truth is, (as you well know) the cost would be prohibitive and, once again, the long-suffering British people would be forced into a lifetime’s behind-wiping nurture of those bred and spawned, with maximum irresponsibility, by your most-favoured folk.

“WE HAD TO REFORM THE LAWS AROUND CRIMINAL JUSTICE, INCLUDING ON ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR, ORGANISED CRIME AND THE TREATMENT OF PERSISTENT OFFENDERS. WE HAD TO TREAT THE GANGS IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY to have any hope of success.”

Treat your most-favoured folk in a completely different way to the rest of us, Tony?

Your lot have been doing precisely that since Harold Wilson’s time. Immigrant first, indigenous last; that’s what the media promotion of everything alien and the race laws are all about. Glorify and protect the vast numbers of unwanted arrivals and criminalise the British if they object too loudly. Oh yes, Tony, we know all about the “completely different way”.

You don’t mention the elephant in the room, Tony. You don’t mention the immigrant. You don’t mention those we never wanted here in the first place. You don’t mention your happy-clappy melting pot and the fanatical treachery of the elite as they deliberately promoted the foreigner ahead of the British native for more than half a century. For sixty long years the British people kept on speaking out about immigration and, for sixty long years, the politician kept on putting two fingers up at those he was elected to serve.

The recent riots were born of the aggressive and criminal nature of the black man. This is not just a twentieth century phenomenon. One has only to check out what happened throughout the 19th century in black-run Haiti to give the lie to that one. However, a very deliberate, twentieth century policy and programme, devised by a genocidally-minded globalist clique within the establishment, imposed vast numbers of culturally dissimilar peoples upon the white world. These rioted in Tottenham, Hackney, Croydon and elsewhere in Augsut 2011. Just as they had before in Bristol, Brixton (three times), Toxteth, Moss Side, Chapeltown (twice), Handsworth (twice), Broadwater Farm, Oldham, Bradford, Burnley and Leeds.

On 23 October 2009, Andrew Neather, a former advisor to Tony Blair, dropped this revelatory bombshell in The Evening Standard:

“THE DELIBERATE POLICY OF MINISTERS FROM LATE 2000 UNTIL AT LEAST FEBRUARY LAST YEAR… WAS TO OPEN UP THE UK TO MASS MIGRATION…

EARLIER DRAFTS I SAW ALSO INCLUDED A DRIVING POLITICAL PURPOSE… MASS IMMIGRATION WAS THE WAY THAT THE GOVERNMENT WAS GOING TO MAKE THE UK TRULY MULTICULTURAL… THE POLICY WAS INTENDED… TO RUB THE RIGHT'S NOSE IN DIVERSITY…

In 1995, 55,000 FOREIGNERS WERE GRANTED THE RIGHT TO SETTLE IN THE UK. BY 2005 THAT HAD RISEN TO 179,000... In addition, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS HAVE COME FROM THE NEW EU MEMBER STATES SINCE 2004, MOST REQUIRING NEITHER VISAS NOR PERMISSION TO WORK OR SETTLE… THE GOVERNMENT HAD CREATED ITS LONGED-FOR IMMIGRATION BOOM”.

For the Blairs, the Browns, the Camerons, and the Cleggs to admit to the elephant in the room, is to admit that they were responsible for the riots and the problems Blair cites in his article.

To admit to it is to plead guilty for every crime the first, second and third-generation immigrant has ever committed in this country. To acknowledge the elephant in the room is to admit to the betrayal of the indigenous British people by the entirety of the political class.

"I call on all those in THE MAINSTREAM OF OUR POLITICS to stand together in the coming weeks and PRESENT A UNITED FRONT against those who don't value THE DIVERSE AND OUTWARD LOOKING BRITAIN THAT WE STAND FOR; and WHO WANT TO END IMMIGRATION simply because they don't like migrants." (Gordon Brown - 31 March 2010)

"IMMIGRATION HAS ENRICHED OUR NATION OVER THE YEARS.” (2010 Conservative Manifesto)

"BRITAIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN OPEN, WELCOMING COUNTRY, AND THOUSANDS OF BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS IN MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTY RELY ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME TO LIVE HERE FROM OVERSEAS." (2010 Lib Dem Manifesto)

We all know about the elephant in the room, Tony.

It's been treading on us for quite some time now. Thing is, more and more people are daring to point to the elephant and complain. Very soon now the only people still pretending it isn't there will be those who brought it here in the first place.

I wonder if they'll still be pretending when the sentences are handed down?

On 20 August 2011, Janet Daley’s essay: ‘UK Riots: The end of the liberals’ great moral delusion’ was published in The Telegraph.

This, in part, is it:

“There is no national debate about the epidemic of riots and looting that spread through our cities like a bush fire… I cannot remember a time when there has been such crushing unanimity on a matter of public importance: the answers to the questions of why this happened, what went wrong when it began to happen and what needs to follow in its aftermath are considered so blindingly self-evident as to be beyond rational disagreement.

At the margins of this consensus, there are some distant noises off. They are the desperate cries of those who fear that they have lost the argument of a lifetime and who want to persuade the great mass of the population that what it saw before its own eyes, hour by hour, night after night on the television news channels was something else altogether.

THE LEFT-LIBERAL CAMP IS IN OVERDRIVE IN ITS CAMPAIGN TO REWRITE HISTORY (or, in its own vocabulary, TO ALTER CONSCIOUSNESS): you did not see THOUSANDS OF JUBILANT THUGS RAMPAGING THROUGH THE STREETS, DESTROYING LIVELIHOODS AND PROPERTY FOR THE SHEER EXULTANT JOY OF IT. What you saw were society’s victims responding to any or all of the following: bankers’ bonuses, MPs cheating on their expenses, unemployment, government spending cuts, poverty, social inequality, etc, etc. Their crimes were simply part of the same package of callous selfishness displayed by (as one particularly bizarre equation had it) tabloid phone hackers…

The moral equivalence that they wanted to establish between looters and arsonists on the one hand, and the perpetrators of any other kind of bad behaviour you can think of on the other, was rooted in ideological… orthodoxy. The rioting gangs could not simply be what they seemed – what they so obviously were – because that would be a devastating victory for the judgment of popular opinion over the fantasies of liberalism.

What real people know – and have known for quite a long time – is that THE GREAT TACIT AGREEMENT WHICH ONCE HELD CIVIC LIFE TOGETHER HAS BEEN DELIBERATELY BLOWN APART. There was a time within living memory when all reasonable grown-ups were considered to be on the same side. Parents, teachers, police, judges, politicians – decent citizens of every station and calling – formed an unspoken confederacy to uphold standards of behaviour within their own communities. BUT THEIR SHARED VALUES AND EXPECTATIONS ABOUT HUMAN CONDUCT WERE SYSTEMATICALLY UNDERMINED BY A POST-SIXTIES POLITICAL IDEOLOGY THAT PREACHED WHOLESALE DISRESPECT FOR AUTHORITY, AND LEGITIMISED ANTI-SOCIAL ACTIVITY IN THE NAME OF PROTEST.

What real people saw on their television screens this fateful summer seemed to them to be the final vindication of their instinctive judgment: they may have been shocked but, on some level at least, they were not surprised that it had come to this. What else were these terrible events but THE DEFINITIVE DISPROOF OF A DOCTRINE THAT HAD SUBVERTED ADULT AUTHORITY IN ALL ITS OFFICIAL AND UNOFFICIAL FORMS?

That doctrine goes back a long way. In fact, the politics of the Sixties were just a late incarnation of an 18th-century philosophy. We have Jean-Jacques Rousseau to thank for the basic principle that men are born good and will only behave badly if they are corrupted by authority and repressive institutions: that we need only liberate them from those false limitations and their natural moral instincts will come to the fore. So hugely influential was this view in education and social policy that it almost succeeded in extinguishing the truths that arise from experience: people (especially young ones) will behave badly just because they can, because no one is stopping them, or has ever inculcated in them the conscientious discipline that would make them stop themselves.

The capacity for self-control, and the willingness to suppress one’s innate selfishness or cruelty, is something that adults must consciously instil in children and reinforce in other adults by their attitudes to them. The indispensable tools of social stigma and moral judgment that communities used to have at their disposal for this purpose have been stripped away, and the result – the fearless defiance of helpless authority – is what we saw in its terrifying logical conclusion on the streets. THAT IS WHAT REAL PEOPLE KNOW: THAT THEY WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG.”

Janet Daley’s article is spot on for the most part and I congratulate her for it.

But, when she refuses to admit that there might be any ethical connection between the rioters and “bankers’ bonuses, MPs cheating on their expenses” and “tabloid phone hackers”, I am reminded that she, herself, is, very much, the establishment figure.

Daley will attend the same opulent, self-congratualtory parties as the bankers, the hackers and the cheating MPs whose ineptitude and lack of social concern created the “unemployment, government spending cuts, poverty” and “social inequality” she speaks of.

True enough, the connection is not the one that the ‘left-liberal camp’ would foist upon us. The bad do not behave badly because the good do not show them enough care and concern. As Daley suggests, they do so because they can. They do so because, in this politically correct age, they have been brought up to believe that no one will punish their anti-societal brutishness. “Do as I say not as I do”, doesn’t wash with the generations instructed in “wholesale disrespect for authority”.

However, the connection Daley deliberately ignores is an obvious one. Bad behaviour at the top gives the bad at the bottom an EXCUSE and a warrant to create mayhem. The “jubilant thugs” are given the green light to rear up by the corrupt and self-serving actions of the elite.

If the politicians can hog at the trough, kiss Murdoch’s behind, give our jobs to immigrants, hand over billions in aid to foreign despots, invade Iraq and cuddle up to greedy bankers (creating a world-wide recession as a result) the bad guy has all the EXCUSE he needs to “rampage through the streets destroying livelihoods and property for the sheer exultant joy of it.” The fact that gang violence and casual street thuggery was endemic in our society way before the expenses scandal, subservience to the Murdoch press, bankers’ greed and the cuts became an issue is conveniently forgotten by those who do not have a problem with spin and lies.

You know, the “jubilant thug” and the “left-liberal”.

People like that.

PS. The riotous beasts who bestrode the British stage recently killed four people. The Western coalition that lied us into invading Iraq unleashed forces that have seen up to 1,400,000 Iraqis and around 6,000 coalition troops die.

America’s Neoconservative movement was primarily responsible for stoking up the fires of war that led to the invasion. On this side of the Atlantic, Janet Daley was very outspoken in her desire to see Iraq invaded.

Daley, who is herself American, and most of the leading US Neocons, are Jewish.

Riots v Iraq.

Compare, contrast and discuss.

On 19 August 2011, Damian Thompson said this in The Telegraph:

“Next weekend, I shall be living in a police state. There will be policemen at either end of my little street, policemen on duty outside my local pub, policemen guarding the entrance to the supermarket. If I go to the shops and plan to return to my flat by anything other than the circuitous ‘official’ route, I’ll have to show my local residents’ ID to one of the 5,000 police officers patrolling the neighbourhood. You see, I live in Notting Hill and IT’S CARNIVAL TIME AGAIN. And what a special Carnival it promises to be, coming less than a month after street gangs attacked shops and restaurants bang in the middle of the parade route. Members of those gangs will be back for ‘Europe’s largest fun-filled event’, as the BBC wants us to think of it. That’s why this year the cost of policing it will approach £10 million for the first time…

There’s plenty of fun to be had at the Carnival, as revellers glug their way through 25,000 bottles of rum to the accompaniment of dozens of screaming sound systems. But that fun comes at a price, believe me. You should read the surveyor’s report on our house. I’ve just forked out 12 grand to fortify walls loosened by the pulsating throb of the Carnival…

It’s not the event I hate so much as THE MULTI-CULTI FANTASY THAT’S BEEN CONSTRUCTED AROUND IT… Two groups stand out. There are the kids whose families live locally and have actually been to the Caribbean. All of them are white: the so-called ‘OK-Yahdies’ who go to Antigua at Christmas and grow dreadlocks during their gap year. Then there are the black kids, most of whom live a long Tube ride away from Notting Hill and can’t afford to visit the West Indies.

There’s not much inter-racial banter, unless you count PUBLIC SCHOOLBOYS BARGAINING OVER THE PRICE OF A SPLIFF or elderly white diversity officers forcing their ‘outreach’ on black youths…

The truth is that the damn thing should have been moved to Hyde Park years ago… Perhaps it might have been, if it hadn’t been for the cheerleading of the BBC, which refuses to deviate from its script for the Carnival. I’ve just watched an item on its website which rounds up local shopkeepers to say how bloody marvellous the festival is, and of course there won’t be any trouble etc. Only in the last few seconds of the report do we hear that ‘some traders do have reservations and didn’t even appear confident enough to appear on camera for fear of prompting trouble.’

An interesting choice of words, don’t you think? IF YOU’RE A SCARED SHOPKEEPER WHO SPEAKS OUT, THEN YOU’RE GUILTY OF ‘PROMPTING’ RIOTERS TO SMASH IN YOUR WINDOWS, OR WORSE. That’s rich coming from the BBC, several of whose senior executives live in Notting Hill. But then again, something tells me that VERY FEW OF THEM WILL BE AT HOME ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY TO ENJOY THE MULTICULTURAL FUN.”

On 19 August 2011, David Starkey, whose earlier Newsnight comments had provoked much frothing at the mouth from the left-wing, said this in The Telegraph:

"(Enoch) Powell’s views were popular at the time and the London dockers marched in his support. The reaction of the liberal elites in both the Labour and Tory parties... was unanimous: THE WHITE WORKING CLASS COULD NEVER BE TRUSTED ON RACE AGAIN. The result was A SYSTEMATIC ATTACK OVER SEVERAL DECADES: ON THEIR PERCEIVED XENOPHOBIC PATRIOTISM, ON SYMBOLS LIKE THE FLAG OF ST GEORGE, EVEN – AND INCREASINGLY – ON THE VERY IDEA OF ENGLAND ITSELF...

It left a void where a sense of common identity should be. And, for too many, THE VOID HAS BEEN FILLED WITH THE VALUES OF “GANGSTA” CULTURE.

Consider the converse. One of the most striking things about the England riots is where they did not happen: Yorkshire, the North East, Wales and Scotland. These areas contain some of the worst pockets of unemployment in the country. But they are also characterised by a powerful sense of regional or national identity and difference that cuts across all classes and binds them together. And it is this, I am sure, which has inoculated them against the disease of “gangsta” culture and its attendant, indiscriminate violence.

Scotland, Alex Salmond says smugly, is a “different culture”. It is indeed, since THE SCOTS ARE ALLOWED - AND EVEN ENCOURAGED - TO BE AS RACIST AS THEY PLEASE AND HATE THE ENGLISH WITH GLAD ABANDON.

I do not want a similar licensed xenophobia here. But an English nationalism we must have. And it must be one that includes all our people: white and black and mixed race alike.

Fortunately, there is a powerful narrative of freedom that runs like a golden thread through our history. “The air of England is too pure for a slave to breathe in,” counsel declared repeatedly in Somersett’s Case, about the legality of slavery in England, in 1772...

If all the people of this country, black and white alike, are to enter fully into our national story, as I desperately hope they will, they must do so on terms of reciprocity. In other words, I must be as free to comment on problems in the black community as blacks are to point the finger at whites, which they do frequently, often with justice, and with impunity.

For the other pernicious legacy of the reaction to Powell has been AN ENFORCED SILENCE ON THE MATTER OF RACE. THE SUBJECT HAS BECOME UNMENTIONABLE, BY WHITES AT ANY RATE. AND ANY BREACH HAS BEEN PUNISHED BY OSTRACISM AND WORSE...

But the times have changed... WE ARE TIRED OF BEING CHEATED AND LIED TO BY BANKERS AND MPS AND SOME SECTIONS OF THE PRESS."

This was my reply to David Starkey's article:

"We're not interested in "nationalism... that includes... white and black and mixed race alike", David. That's the wet dream of the traitorous "liberal elites" who, quite rightly, didn't "trust us on race" and so launched "a systematic attack over several decades" on our "xenophobic patriotism... the flag... and increasingly, on the very idea of England itself."

The "white working-classes" want their country back and their country includes neither "the gang culture of black London" nor the "liberal elites" who have betrayed them so profoundly. Most want the former gone and the latter punished to the max.

“The air of England is too pure for a slave to breathe in.”

Fine words, David. Unfortunately, having been "cheated and lied to by bankers and MPs and some sections of the press" all of their lives, the dumbed-down, drugged-up, un-English chav who apes black gangsta culture gives the lie to that antiquated little platitude. He will never restore our country to its unenslaved status. Nor will the honest historian who "desperately" hopes that "all the people of this country, black and white alike" will "enter fully into our national story". You see, David, to wish for that is to concede victory to the chav, the liberal elite and the "violent, destructive, nihilistic, gangster culture" of "black London".

In December 1941, George Orwell said this: "For the last twenty years the main object of English left-wing intellectuals has been to break down" any feelings of "patriotism" and "racial pride."

We've suffered under the cosh of Brit-loathing Marxist certitude for ninety long years and what do we have to show for it?

Black gangsta culture and chavs.

Those whose "systematic attack" upon us produced the "void" from which "gangsta culture" emerged should beware. There is an ever increasing number of English men and women who are prepared to tolerate chavism, liberal treachery and the violent, black nihilist no longer.

England is waking up. Now that we know what the "left-wing intellectual" has done, and how long he's been doing it, many of us despise him almost as much as he hates us. It's not the riots of the chavs and the gangstas his kind should be worried about. The nascent revolution in the minds and hearts of the waking classes, that's what should give them pause for thought.

The above response to Starkey's piece was removed three times by The Telegraph censor.

On 19 August 2011, Learco Chindamo, the murderer of Headmaster Philip Lawrence, was noted by The Daily Mail speaking of the killing for the first time.

This is what he said:

"He followed me and my group. I struck him with my hand. As he tapped my shoulder I struck him and I’ve kicked him as well. I think I said: 'f*** off, leave me alone,' something along those lines... He tapped me on the shoulder a second time. I stabbed him... I’ve turned around as he’s tapped me on the shoulder and I’ve stabbed him in the chest. He’s gone to dodge it and it’s gone into his arm."

Chindamo, an Italian-Philipino immigrant, was giving evidence at Blackfriars Crown Court where he was accused of boasting of the killing during an alleged robbery in 2010. Prosecutors say he asked the victim:

‘Do you know who I am? Do you remember about the head teacher in Maida Vale?’

On December 8, 1995, 15-year-old Chindamo went with others to St George’s Roman Catholic School in Maida Vale, North-West London, to 'sort out' a pupil at the school.

Philip Lawrence intervened and was stabbed to death. Chindamo admitted he was a gang member and ‘was doing a lot of bad things’ at the time.

In 1996, Chindamo pleaded not guilty to the killing and sought to explain away what he said to a friend about Philip's murder thus:

"I was boasting... Because he was showing off I decided to tell him a story about how I had stabbed a teacher. I said I saw blood, to make it sound more exciting."

He was convicted and jailed for a minimum of 12 years.

Six years after Philip's death, the 13-year-old black boy he was trying to protect from Chindamo, was sentenced to four-and-a-half years' imprisonment for carrying a loaded pistol at the Notting Hill Carnival. He had previously dropped out of school.

As he was led down to the cells at the Old Bailey, William Njoh waved at Philip's widow, Frances, who was watching the proceedings.

She blew him a kiss.

On 18 August 2011, the teacher, Katharine Birbalsingh, said this in The Telegraph:

“Are our children really becoming more intelligent? COMPARE AN A LEVEL PAPER FROM 30 YEARS AGO TO ONE FROM 2011 AND THERE IS NO COMPARISON… THE GRADES THAT WE SEE OUR CHILDREN GETTING ARE NOT AN ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF OUR COUNTRY’S TRUE ABILITIES. The grades the public see are an inflated version of what we would have seen before retaking modules became the norm.”

Within the same article, Chris Keates, General Secretary of NASUWT, put the opposite case thus:

“The publication of A-level results leads to the depressing regurgitation of the same stale arguments that any increase in the overall pass rate or the number of candidates gaining Grade A, is nothing more than a symptom of an explosion in the number of CANDIDATES TAKING EASY SUBJECTS or the general DUMBING DOWN OF THE QUALIFICATIONS SYSTEM. A-levels, it is claimed, are not what they once were.

The ‘dumbing down’ argument should be dismissed for the nonsense that it is. There is no credible evidence that examinations have become less demanding, other than in the HAZY, SEPIA-TINGED, PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS OF SOME OF EXAMINATIONS TAKEN IN THE DIM AND DISTANT PAST.

Results have increased significantly over the past decade. Between 1997 and 2010 the A level pass rate rose from 87.7% to 97.55%, 43,000 more students went to university and there was a 30% increase in young people from the most disadvantaged areas attending higher education. All as a result of rising standards of achievement DUE TO THE HARD WORK OF TEACHERS AND YOUNG PEOPLE AND NOTHING ELSE.”

I responded to the article thus:

"The cited statements of Katharine Birbalsingh and Chris Keates are mutually exclusive. Both cannot be true. One of the cited commentators is a liar. Let's try to figure out which is which.

One has gained a reputation for speaking out in a courageous, politically incorrect, off-message way. The other has gained a reputation for hectoring the multitudes in an on-message, doctrinaire, politically correct way.

One was suspended from her school and forced to resign for blowing the whistle on the state of the British education. The other is the leader of the largest teacher's Union.

One is a former Marxist who made a speech at the 2010 Tory Party's conference in support of their education policies. The other appears to be a very present Marxist supporter of the UAF (Unite Against Fascism).

One has said this:

"Standards have been so dumbed down that even the children know it...

Black underachievement is due in part to the chaos of our classrooms, and in part, to the accusation of racism. If you keep telling teachers that they’re racist for trying to discipline black boys, and if you keep telling heads that they’re racist for trying to exclude black boys, in the end, the schools stop reprimanding these children. Black children underachieve because of what the well-meaning liberal does to him...

Teachers spend most of their time telling children to sit down or stop disrupting the class rather than teaching… The unions are keeping bad teachers and bad support staff from being fired.”

The other is on record as having said this:

"The teachers' union NASUWT has been campaigning for the last four years... to prevent those who are members of the BNP and other far-right fascist organisations from being employed as teachers... The union also believes that they should not be allowed to serve on school governing bodies. Our proposal... would ensure that children and young people were protected from exposure to their vile views... Such an amendment would bring the contract in line with those of the police and prison service...

The views and beliefs of those who are active in the BNP are completely incompatible with the ethos and values of public service in which harassment, discrimination, intolerance and abuse have no place. Teachers and the whole school workforce play a vital role in helping to tackle racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia and all forms of discrimination. Their role is to contribute to securing an inclusive society, to promote community cohesion... No right-minded person would want such people nursing the sick, caring for the elderly or teaching children."

Chris Keates, one presumes, would have no problem at all with such "diverse," "inclusive" and "cohesive" criminals as those cited in the link below, working in the "police and prison service" or her own profession.

Just in case you haven't figured out yet which of our two protagonists is the most honest, here's something that was said in yesterday's Telegraph:

"The number of UK-born people in employment was 25 million over the three months to June, a fall of 50,000 people on a year earlier. Conversely the number of people with jobs who were born outside of Britain was 4.15 million, an increase of 289,000 on last year… Lord McFall of Alcluith, the former MP and chairman of the Treasury select committee, said:

‘This highlights THE LACK OF SKILLS IN THE UK POPULATION... THE EDUCATION AND SKILLS AGENDA NEEDS GREATER FOCUS’…

The number of unemployed 16 to 24-years-olds grew by 15,000 to 949,000 between March and June. This means that over one in five of all youths – or 20.2 per cent – are now unemployed.”

The businessman who prefers to employ foreign labour rather than the native Brit would, rightly or wrongly, tell us that he does so because of ‘the lack of skills in the UK population’. I doubt that he would say that ‘the ‘dumbing down’ argument’ was ‘nonsense‘. I also doubt that he would argue that the 20.2 per cent figure had arisen because of the ‘rising standards of achievement’."

On 18 August 2011, the Work and Pensions Secretary, Ian Duncan-Smith, was quoted thus by The Daily Express:

“It’s not optional. If anything tells you that it’s not optional, look at the 2.5 million jobs created under Labour out of which at least 60 per cent went to foreign nationals. It’s getting worse. And it’s getting worse because we face the problem of having to reform a group that’s progressively less able to do the work. That’s why I believe we’re in the last chance saloon. So much is now produced by people from outside the UK. This is a very expensive option for us because we pay for welfare, absorb crime and health costs, then pay money for people from overseas. Labour got this wrong: This needed reforming.”

On 18 August 2011, Sir Andrew Green of the think-tank MigrationWatch, was quoted thus by The Daily Express:

“We need to face up to the facts of the impact that immigration is having on the prospects for British workers... It is perfectly clear that the employment of immigrants is increasing while the employment of British-born workers is decreasing. It is time the Government took a close and critical look at economic migration.They could start by cancelling the scheme that allows foreign graduates to take jobs in Britain without any debate as to whether local workers are available."

On 18 August 2011, Katharine Birbalsingh, a teacher, said this in The Telegraph:

“Compare an A level paper from 30 years ago to one from 2011 and there is no comparison. Not only this, but it used to be the case that if one sat exams and failed them then that was it…

Manipulating modules is how pupils pull their grades up. The trick is to maximise scores on the easier modules taken at AS level (year 1), to allow room for failure on the harder modules at A2 level. For instance, in an A level with 4 units (2 per year), if a pupil retakes the two AS modules and manages to get over 90% in them, then he can afford to get as low as a D grade on his A2 modules and will still manage to pull off a B grade for the A level overall… The grades that we see our children getting are not an accurate representation of our country’s true abilities. The grades the public see are an inflated version of what we would have seen before retaking modules became the norm.”

On 18 August 2011, Chris Keates, General Secretary, of NASUWT, said this in The Telegraph:

“The publication of A-level results leads to the depressing regurgitation of the same stale arguments that any increase in the overall pass rate or the number of candidates gaining Grade A, is nothing more than a symptom of an explosion in the number of candidates taking easy subjects or the general dumbing down of the qualifications system...

The ‘dumbing down’ argument should be dismissed for the nonsense that it is. There is no credible evidence that examinations have become less demanding, other than in the hazy, sepia-tinged, personal recollections of some of examinations taken in the dim and distant past.

Results have increased significantly over the past decade. Between 1997 and 2010 the A level pass rate rose from 87.7% to 97.55%, 43,000 more students went to university and there was a 30% increase in young people from the most disadvantaged areas attending higher education. All as a result of rising standards of achievement due to the hard work of teachers and young people and nothing else.”

Just in case you haven't figured out yet which of our two educationalists is telling the truth, here's something that James Hall, Consumer Affairs Editor of The Telegraph, said yesterday, 17 August 2011:

“The worse-than-expected official job market figures showed that UK unemployment rose by 38,000 to 2.49 million. It means 7.9 per cent of people are now out of work… The figures, from the Office of National Statistics, showed that the number of UK-born people in employment was 25 million over the three months to June, a fall of 50,000 people on a year earlier. Conversely the number of people with jobs who were born outside of Britain was 4.15 million, an increase of 289,000 on last year…

Lord McFall of Alcluith, the former MP and chairman of the Treasury select committee, said:

‘This highlights the lack of skills in the UK population. With the rise of China and India this is a warning that the education and skills agenda needs greater focus’…

Other figures in its report confirmed that foreign workers are gaining employment at a far greater rate than people born in the UK. The number of foreign nationals in employment grew by 166,000 over the three months to June, while the number of UK nationals in employment grew by a far smaller amount - just 71,000.

Elsewhere in the report, the ONS said that number of people forced into part-time employment because they were unable to find a full time job rose by 83,000 to 1.26 million, the highest figure since comparable records began in 1992. The figures also revealed the continuation of a worrying trend in youth unemployment. The number of unemployed 16 to 24-years-olds grew by 15,000 to 949,000 between March and June. This means that over one in five of all youths – or 20.2 per cent – are now unemployed.”

On 17 August 2011, the left-wing journalist, Kevin Maguire. said this in The Daily Mirror:

"I BELIEVE GANG MEMBERS CAN BE TURNED INTO VALUABLE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY."

I believe your gaff should be used as a half way house when your valuable gang-member pals get parole.

On 17 August 2011, Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, said this on Radio 4's Today Programme:

"We cannot have people being frightened in their beds, frightened in their own homes, for their public safety."

In which case, Eric, why are the Tories still importing huge numbers of immigrants?

Can the parlaimentary Conservative Party possibly be so stupid as to imagine that the immigrant rioter does not "frighten" them? Is it only the less consequential indigenous rioter who makes them fear "for their public safety?"

On 17 August 2011, Sir Andrew Green, the Chairman of Migration Watch. was quoted thus by The Express:

“THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION ON THE AVAILABILITY OF SOCIAL HOUSING FOR BRITISH PEOPLE HAS BEEN AIRBRUSHED OUT FOR TOO LONG. Either THE GOVERNMENT MUST CUT IMMIGRATION VERY SUBSTANTIALLY AS THEY HAVE PROMISED or they must invest very large sums in the construction of extra social housing.”

On 17 August 2011, The Daily Express told us that the 17-page “Power of Language” guide, originally produced by Greater Manchester Police, contained the following statement:

“You should be careful to avoid certain terms which use ‘black’ simply to portray negative imagery, for example ‘black look’ or ‘accident black spot’. DOING SO POTENTIALLY SERVES TO REINFORCE A NEGATIVE VIEW OF ALL THINGS BLACK.”

The Express explained:

“Officers have been issued with a glossary of banned terms, including ‘WEST INDIAN’, ‘IMMIGRANT’ AND EVEN ‘ASIAN’ TO AVOID CAUSING OFFENCE. They have also been told not to mention HUSBANDS, WIVES OR MARRIAGE while out fighting crime TO AVOID OFFENDING GAYS AND LESBIANS. Officers have even been warned that THE TERM ‘LADY’ IS ‘NOT UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED’ BY WOMEN…

John Midgley, of the Campaign Against Political Correctness, said:

‘At a time when the public are crying out for a robust response to the violence in our country, it ill behoves Dumfries and Galloway Police to impose THIS POLITICALLY CORRECT CLAPTRAP on its officers.’

The guide was obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. It emerged just a year after Lothian and Borders Police produced a similar document, BANNING THE WORD ‘HOMOSEXUAL’ AND BRANDING IT ‘PSEUDOSCIENCE’ BECAUSE IT WAS COined by a non-gay psychologist…

Superintendent Gary Small said:

‘This guide can be used as an aid by staff giving them general points to remember. Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary receive very few complaints about the use of language by staff’.”

Perhaps because, if they dared to speak out, they might get called a ‘racist’ or a ‘homophobe’ by politically correct automatons like you, Gary.

Their political persuasions might also be called into question and, if it was discovered that they sympathised with the ethos of the BNP, well, they’d lose their jobs, wouldn’t they? Don’t you think that might be why you “receive very few comaplaints”?

On 17 August 2011, Louisa Peacock’s article, Part-time Britain hits record high as unemployment soars, told us this:

"Britain's economic recovery hopes were dashed today as OFFICIAL FIGURES SHOWED UNEMPLOYMENT ROSE BY 38,000 IN THE THREE MONTHS TO JUNE TO 2.49M AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WORKING PART-TIME BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT FIND FULL-TIME JOBS SURGED TO A NEW RECORD HIGH… 83,000 more people had no choice but to take part-time work, reaching 1.26m on the quarter - THE HIGHEST FIGURE SINCE RECORDS BEGAN…

The number of people claiming jobless benefits also surged 37,100 last month to 1.56m - the largest monthly increase since May 2009, the Office for National Statistics said…

The unemployment rate was 7.9pc and THERE WERE 9.3M ECONOMICALLY INACTIVE PEOPLE AGED BETWEEN 16 TO 64, the figures showed…

The statistics… point to further misery for Britain's young people: youth unemployment rose by 15,000 over the quarter to reach 949,000, or 20.2pc of 16-24 year olds…

John Salt, director at job site Totaljobs, said: ‘Following the recent decline in output in the UK manufacturing industry, the rise in unemployment, unfortunately, does not come as a major surprise. THIS IS WORRYING FOR YOUNG PEOPLE CONSIDERING THERE IS ANOTHER WAVE OF GRADUATES AND SCHOOL LEAVERS ENTERING THE JOBS MARKET AT THIS TIME OF YEAR’.”

"The number of people out of work for up to six months rose by 66,000 over the quarter to reach 1.23m - the largest quarterly increase since 2009."

If all the foreigners were removed from our country, how many Brits would be out of work exactly?

So why don't you remove them? The foreigners are your footsoldiers? In the perpetual war you New World order folks are waging against the rest of us?

Oh right. Silly me. I was forgetting.

On 17 August 2011, in the article, Four years in jail for the Facebook riots inciters: this looks too harsh, even for me, Ed West said this in The Telegraph:

"The last 40 years have been one long series of defeats for conservatives in the British culture wars, losing every battle to preserve their culture and institutions against a small but mobilised opposition.

But last week’s riots may well be the El Alamein of the culture wars.

These were the riots caused by the cultural revolution and the state-worshippers’ war against the social institutions they loathe, the looters products of long-term welfare dependency, state-sponsored fatherlessness and mass immigration. Most of all they have undermined the all-powerful Pelagian fantasy promoted by the welfare-political complex that people behave badly because society oppresses them. In fact, as people not indoctrinated by Marxist utopianism will tell you, some people are just bad.”

I responded thus:

“Oh, you journalists are catching up fast. I wonder when, if ever, any of you will acknowledge that those you demonised and smeared for so long were, actually, telling it how it was. I mean, what's the difference between a Tory telling the truth in 2011 and a British Nationalist telling it forty years earlier?

Well, the media publicises the one and demonises or disappears the other.

Never mind, it's catching on and catching up that matters. Very well said, Mr West. Keep it up. And don't worry about the rioters’ long jail sentences. The general public is is up for giving the p***-takers a good kicking. And besides when Whitey's sentencing is compared with what those who started it all are getting down south, there'll be a big stink and, quietly, behind the scenes, the sentences will be halved.”

On 17 August 2011, David Cameron said this:

“Clearly, if I had known then all the things I know now, then obviously I WOULD HAVE TAKEN DIFFERENT DECISIONS. The important thing to remember is that Andy Coulson doesn’t work for the Government any more…

I did actually say sorry in the House of Commons, very clearly. I SAID I WAS SORRY FOR THE TROUBLE THIS HAD CAUSED.”

Big of you, Dave.

On 17 August 2011, the lawyer and political commentator, Alan Dershowitz, was quoted thus by Newsmax.com

“Jonathan Pollard, given a life sentence for spying on the United States for Israel, (should) be commuted to time served and that he be immediately released… There is no reason in justice or fairness for Pollard to have received the double digit sentence for spying for Israel…

POLLARD'S CONTINUED IMPRISONMENT, IN VIOLATION OF LAW, EQUALITY, JUSTICE AND COMPASSION, IS A STAIN ON AMERICA. This stain can be removed if President Obama commutes Pollard's sentence to time served…

Pollard has admitted his guilt, not once but several times… He has apologized, as has the Israeli government… Had he not confessed his guilt, it is unlikely he would have been convicted of the most serious charge of spying, since the only direct evidence outside of his confession was the fact that he had unauthorized possession of classified material...

The time has come, indeed it is long overdue, for Jonathan Pollard to receive proportional justice.”

The US executed the Rosenbergs.

Now THAT was proportional justice.

The Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard and Alan Dershowitz, the lawyer that wants him freed, were and are Jewish.

On 16 August 2011, the BBC published a 2 March 2007 letter from former royal editor, Clive Goodman, to News International's director of human resources, claiming senior staff figures knew all about phone hacking.

Ppealing against his dismissal from the company, Goodman said that he had been promised his job back if he did not implicate The News of the World in court. The letter, some of which has been censored, said:

"The decision is perverse in that the actions leading to this criminal charge were carried out WITH THE FULL KNOWLEDGE AND SUPPORT OF [redacted]... payment for Glen Mulcaire's services was arranged by [redacted]. The decision is inconsistent because [REDACTED] AND OTHER MEMBERS OF STAFF WERE CARRYING OUT THE SAME ILLEGAL PROCEDURES.

THIS PRACTICE WAS WIDELY DISCUSSED IN THE DAILY EDITORIAL CONFERENCE, until explicit reference to it was banned by the Editor. As far as I am aware, NO OTHER MEMBER OF STAFF HAS FACED DISCIPLINARY ACTION, MUCH LESS DISMISSAL."

Goodman was jailed for four months in January 2007 after pleading guilty to phone hacking.

News International said at the time that Goodman had acted alone and no other journalists had been involved in hacking.

In February 2007, Goodman was told he had been dismissed for gross misconduct, prompting the production of the above letter. It was forwarded to Les Hinton, News International's Executive Chairman and Stuart Kuttner, Mmanaging Editor of the News of the World.

On 15 August 2011, the Tony Sewell essay, Don't howl Starkey down. Gangsta culture is a poison spreading among youths of all races, was published by The Daily Mail.

“Dr Starkey’s outburst not only outraged his fellow panellists in the BBC studio, but also many commentators who watched the show, even though over the weekend he insisted that he ‘was not talking about skin colour but gang culture’. Piers Morgan called him a ‘racist idiot’ and pronounced Starkey’s television career to be over. Robert Peston, the BBC’s business editor, accused him of ‘nasty ignorance’…

In the current debate about our social malaise, it is wrong to silence any voice through a form of POLITICALLY CORRECT MCCARTHYISM. We will achieve nothing if WE CREATE A MOOD OF ABSOLUTE CONFORMITY BY HURLING ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM AT THOSE WITH WHOM WE DISAGREE…

Despite the attempts of some apologists to dress up the looting as a political act against an oppressive Tory establishment, the fact is that THE ETHOS OF MATERIALISM, OR ‘BLING’ TO USE THE STREET TERM, THAT PERVADES URBAN BLACK YOUTH PLAYED A MAJOR PART IN THE WIDESPREAD CRIMINALITY PERPETRATED BY RIOTERS OF ALL RACES. That is why the looters targeted specific stores that are cherished in this culture, such as those selling mobile phones, trainers, sports clothes or widescreen TVs. Let’s face it, there were no reports of the vandals looting bookshops or public libraries.

What motivated the troublemakers was not genuine poverty but rather A RAW ACQUISITIVENESS THAT IS FUELLED BY SO MUCH IN THIS BLACK-LED YOUTH CULTURE, FROM THE IMAGERY IN RAP VIDEOS TO THE LYRICS OF HIP-HOP MUSIC. THE TWIN CENTRAL THEMES OF THIS WORLD ARE SEX AND MATERIAL POSSESSIONS. IT IS A MILIEU THAT GLORIES IN LOOSE WOMEN AND FAST CARS, IN MACHO DOMINANCE AND EASY WEALTH. CONCEPTS OF RESTRAINT, HARD WORK AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ARE ABSENT. RESPECT IS SOMETHING TO BE DEMANDED RATHER THAN EARNED.

SO MUCH OF THE MUSIC AND THE VIDEO OUTPUT IS CLOSE TO PORNOGRAPHIC, WITH WOMEN DEGRADINGLY TREATED AS LITTLE MORE THAN SEX OBJECTS. IN THIS WORLD, THE HIGHEST IDEAL TO WHICH A MAN CAN ASPIRE IS TO BE A PHILANDERING, GUN-WIELDING GANG LEADER.

Where I believe Dr Starkey is right is that it is now just as likely to be a white or Asian teenager posing on the internet in baggy designer clothes and dripping in gold chains, either waving a weapon of some kind or pointing their fingers at the camera in a grotesque parody of a shooting.Tragically, THIS HAS BECOME THE ACME OF ‘COOL’ FOR A GENERATION OF YOUNGSTERS, regardless of the colour of their skin…

A KEY ASPECT OF ‘GANGSTA’ CULTURE, ONE THAT WE SAW WRIT LARGE ON THE STREETS LAST WEEK, IS AN UTTER DISREGARD FOR THE POLICE AND THE RULE OF LAW. You only have to consider that ONE OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL RAP SONGS OF THE PAST TWO DECADES WAS CALLED COP KILLER to understand the danger posed by these influences.

This is all a far cry from the black music culture that used to exist in the Sixties and Seventies. There were two main strands then, entirely different to those of today. One was the demand for social justice for blacks, inspired by the flowing rhetoric of leaders such as Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. The second strand was a belief in the importance of romance, with men encouraged to be chivalrous and treat women properly. But from the mid-Eighties there was a dramatic change in tone. Justice and romance were out. AGGRESSION AND MATERIALISM WERE IN. THIS WAS PARTLY DUE TO THE RISE OF THE TELEVISION MUSIC CHANNEL MTV, WHICH ALLOWED EXPLICIT VIDEOS TO BE SEEN…

The continuing collapse of the traditional family meant many young blacks looked to their peers in street gangs for an alternative structure of support, which again reinforced the appeal of hip-hop and rap, in which those gangs were glorified. All this helped to make black culture truly global. It soon became the dominant force among the world’s youth, from the U.S. to all of Europe…

YOUNG WHITE AND ASIAN, OFTEN MIDDLE-CLASS, BRITONS, ANXIOUS FOR A BIT OF STREET CRED, ADOPTED THE LANGUAGE AND CLOTHES OF THE CULTURE…

Now SOME MIGHT VIEW THIS AS A WELCOME DEVELOPMENT, A SIGN OUR SOCIETY IS TRULY A MELTING POT… The willingness of white and Asian youths to embrace black music and culture shows that racism is not nearly as ingrained as some of the professional grievance-mongers claim. But, at present, the culture is heading down the wrong street, a demeaning and negative one that can only lead to more social problems. In his own awkward way, that is precisely what David Starkey was trying to say.”

Brixton-born Tony Sewell is the CEO of the charity Generating Genius.

He is black.

On 15 August 2011, Labour leader Ed Miliband responded to David Starkey's forthright opinions saying that his were "racist comments, frankly, and there is no place for them in our society."

"It is absolutely outrageous that someone in the twenty first century could be making that sort of comment. There should be condemnation from every politician, from every political party of those sorts of comments."

Oh yes, free speech that happens to be rather too honest is the last thing a second-generation Jewish immigrant would want to hear in the land of the free and the home of the brave. remind me again, Ed, why did your father, grandfather and mother seek sanctuary here?

On 15 August 2011, Texas Governor and Presidential hopeful, Rick Perry, said this of Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, during his maiden campaign speech in Iowa:

“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but WE WOULD TREAT HIM PRETTY UGLY down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost TREACHEROUS, or TREASONOUS, in my opinion.”

You can scratch this guy from your list of future Presidents, that's for sure.

You see, Ben Bernanke is Jewish and the Jews aren't used to politcians being as straightforwardly critical of them as this.

On 13 August 2011, Damian Thompson wrote this in The Telegraph:

“Jody McIntyre, a wheelchair-bound student activist and blogger for the Independent who clashed with police during the anti-cuts protests, tweeted: ‘BE INSPIRED BY THE SCENES IN TOTTENHAM AND RISE UP IN YOUR OWN NEIGHBOURHOOD’.

A slightly more nuanced message was sent out by Anticutsspace, a pressure group which runs a student centre in central London. Its blog said:

‘WE OFFER UNAPOLOGETIC SOLIDARITY AND SUPPORT TO THOSE INVOLVED IN THE UK UPRISINGS. THIS SENTIMENT EXTENDS TO both THE RIOTERS and to those communities affected by them’.”

On 13 August 2011, Harriet Sergeant suggested that 'These rioters are Tony Blair's children' in ‘The Spectator'.

"On the third day of the London riots I received a telephone call from Mash, a member of a Brixton gang who I befriended three years ago. He was standing outside an electronics shop in Clapham, watching the looting. I could hear shouts, glass breaking but never a police siren. I urged him to go home. ‘Harri man,’ he remonstrated, his voice hoarse with emotion, ‘You don’t get to do this every day. You do your thing, and you don’t get arrested. It’s wild and exciting. These few days, it’s our time.’

The riots engulfing areas of London and other cities this week are not about poverty or race. They are about young men like Mash who are barely literate, unemployed, with no future and nothing to lose. For them it is suddenly a dream come true. Their favourite video games have become a reality. They have got what they never had before – power, a sense of achievement and lots of goodies. Most of us want the same thing. The difference is we can get them without setting London ablaze.

I met Mash three years ago, when I interviewed black Caribbean and white working class boys around the country – the very boys who recently took charge of our streets – for a think-tank report on why these boys are failing. During my investigations, I got to know one south London gang in particular. Am I surprised these riots have taken place? Not at all. I am only surprised they did not happen sooner. In fact so convinced was I of the danger that I stocked up on tinned food, fixed my old fashioned, wooden shutters and bought a baseball bat. I am glad I did. Last night a gang carrying machetes were on patrol only two streets away.

This is no left wing, hand-wringing series of excuses for acts of violence and criminality.”

Yes it is, Harriet.

You may think you’re a right-winger but there is a deal hand-wringing, Liberal wetness in what you’ve written so far. First of all, did you report Mash’s criminality to the police as soon as he mentioned it to you? The BNP and NF bloke would have done so. So would would the old-fashioned Tory. You’re Red Leftie and your airhead Liberal would not.

You also say the riots “are not about… race” at at time when London was engulfed by the riotous behaviour of, by and large, black Londoners. To include Mash and his pals, no doubt. Harriet your wringing right-wing hands are choc full of left-wing excuses. Such is the topsy-turvy way of the world nowadays.

She continues:

“The former Mayor of London, Ken Livingston, has been quick to blame this sudden explosion of violence on Conservative tax cuts. He has a nerve. THESE YOUNG MEN CAME OF AGE DURING THE THIRTEEN YEARS OF LABOUR. THEY ARE BLAIR’S CHILDREN AND THE LEFT’S CREATION. IT IS NOT DEPRIVATION THAT HAS STUNTED THEIR LIVES, BUT THE POLICIES OF THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT…

To understand the mayhem on our streets look no further than a set of figures on literacy rates that came out a week before the riots began. Teaching a child to read and write is not difficult or expensive. Poorer countries than ours manage to do it. The statistics in the UK are staggering. A full 63 PER CENT OF WHITE WORKING CLASS BOYS, AND JUST OVER HALF OF BLACK CARIBBEAN BOYS AT THE AGE OF 14 HAVE A READING AGE OF SEVEN OR BELOW. How does that translate to violence on our streets?… The young men I interviewed either dropped out or were excluded. They then spent their time hanging around on the streets – ONLY TURNING UP TO SCHOOL TO SELL DRUGS OR STOLEN GOODS…

About half of the prison population has a reading age below that of an 11 year old. Of the South London Gang I met three years ago, all bright but only semi-literate, three are now in prison. Bigs, the former leader of one of Brixton’s most notorious gangs received his first prison sentence at 15. As he told me: ‘Other people go from school to university. WE GO FROM SCHOOL TO PRISON…’

Reading failure is just one example of how OUR EDUCATIONAL ESTABLISHMENT PUTS THEIR CHERISHED BELIEFS FIRST AND THE CHILD A VERY DISTANT SECOND. They emphasise what ought to work. They do not investigate or accept the evidence of what actually gives teenage boys the traits needed to thrive: discipline, structure, plenty of exercise and something in which to identify and take pride in, which, ironically, many only find in gangs. As one teacher from East London told me, ‘I AM INSTRUCTED TO PUT INTO PLACE EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVES FOR WHICH THERE IS NO EDUCATIONAL EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER." Faced with a child who is incapable of ‘directing his own learning‘, TEACHERS WILL QUESTION WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE CHILD OR BLAME HIS BACKGROUND, NOT THEIR TEACHING.

OVER AND OVER AGAIN, THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT PUT THE INTERESTS OF TEACHING UNIONS ABOVE THOSE OF PUPILS. Even with such dismal educational results from our poorest children (ONLY ONE IN SIX WHITE BOYS ON FREE SCHOOL MEALS, FOR EXAMPLE, HAVE MASTERED THE THREE RS) JUST 12 TEACHERS OUT OF A WORK FORCE OF 450,000 HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED FOR INCOMPETENCE IN THE LAST NINE YEARS… The casualties of an education system based on wishful thinking now fill our prisons and our benefit queues. But they come to the national attention only now, when they are causing mayhem on our streets.

The second factor is the change in Britain’s job market. Forty years ago a young man like Tuggy could leave school at 16 without few, if any, qualifications – then get a job in a factory and at 19 support a wife and child. Now there are far fewer such jobs in our economy. THIS LEAVES WORKING CLASS BLACK AND WHITE BOYS PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO THE OTHER MAJOR CHANGE IN THE JOB MARKET – IMMIGRATION. UNDER LABOUR, THE ARRIVAL OF LARGE NUMBERS OF SKILLED CAPABLE IMMIGRANTS WILLING TO WORK FOR LOW PAY HAS HIT THEM HARD AND LEFT THEM SIDELINED. ACCORDING TO THE ONS, OF THE 1.8 MILLION NEW JOBS CREATED OVER THE LABOUR YEARS, 99 PER CENT WENT TO IMMIGRANTS. SINCE DAVID CAMERON CAME TO POWER, THE FIGURE IS 82 PER CENT.

This invidious combination of poor schools and immigration goes a long way to explaining why, for so many looters, there is no choice other than the dole and criminality. What do we think happens to boys like Mash who emerge from a school where only 7 per cent of the pupils at that time got five good GSCEs?…

The young men now in charge of our streets frighten us because they have such total disregard for our values. But then they have disengaged from society for a reason. They see nothing it for them. And in this they are quite right. Semi-literate, in competition with skilled and motivated immigrants, they are not qualified for low paid work as a first step for something better and an independent adult existence. The overwhelming attitude of all the young man was despair at the prospect of a lifetime dependent on benefits. Mash summed up all their futures, ‘I know men of 40 doing nothing but drink and drugs all day. I don’t blame them’…

The third place where government intervention has been so disastrous is the home. Politicians are now appearing on TV demanding parents to keep their children under curfew. I wonder what planet they are living on. Certainly not the same as the boys I know, for whom grown-ups have been absent or ineffectual. The boys do not even get fed properly, let alone supervised. They are not alone. In a recent survey 49 PER CENT OF BRITISH PARENTS DID NOT KNOW WHERE THEIR CHILDREN WERE IN THE EVENINGS OR WITH WHOM…

NEARLY EVERY ONE OF THE YOUNG MEN I INTERVIEWED HAD A YOUNG, SINGLE MOTHER. BRITAIN HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF TEENAGE PREGNANCY IN EUROPE. DESPITE THE HUGE AMOUNT OF EVIDENCE OF THE HARM THIS CAUSES CHILDREN (MOTHERS OF CHILDREN ON THE ‘AT RISK’ REGISTER, FOR EXAMPLE, ARE FIVE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE SINGLE, TEENAGE MOTHERS – BOYS ARE MORE LIKELY TO JOIN GANGS AND COMMIT CRIME) THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT MADE SINGLE MOTHERHOOD AN ATTRACTIVE PROPOSITION. SINCE 1997, A SINGLE MOTHER OF TWO CHILDREN HAS SEEN HER BENEFITS INCREASE BY A STAGGERING 85 PER CENT.

To accuse these young girls of being feckless is unjust. They are merely responding to the economics of the situation… They have grasped the consequences of our poor education system. Whereas boys take to crime, girls get pregnant. The government have put young girls in a position where the only career open to them is to have children, whether they want to or not and regardless of whether or not they are good mothers. The state has taken over the role of both husband and father and, as it is all too clear, have failed at both. We can watch the effects of that policy play out on our streets every night this week…

Meanwhile, on the other end of the telephone, Mash was giving me the latest update. Usually confined to one small area, he was relishing the freedom of being able to move around London without being attacked by other gangs.

‘Only people to worry about is the feds,’ he said then added, chillingly, ‘But the feds are scared, Harri. We can see it in their eyes. They are scared 100 per cent’.”

All in all, Harriet, well said and well explained.

However, you give too much of a damn for the underclass. Kindness will get you nowhere with those the politcians, the liberal intelligntsia, the absent dad and the feckless mother have ruined.

Most should be sent back to wherever it was their parents emerged from. As for the rest, the least worst should be straightened out by the birch and the chain gang.

The irredeemable should be forced to slog for the rest of us forever.

Or terminated.

On 13 August 2011, Tony Parsons said this in The Daily Mirror:

“The Britain that we knew, the Britain we loved, died on our streets this week.”

No, it didn’t, Tony.

It ended long ago for most of us. What ended "this week" was your ability to pretend everything was as it should be. That’s what died on the streets this week. A couple of thousand formerly PC die hards won’t be able to fake it any more, that’s all.

He continues:

“It went in an orgy of mindless wanton murderous violence. The apocalyptic images of fear are etched in our minds. Decent hard-working people burned out of their homes and businesses, the woman jumping for her life from a blazing building and the have-a-go hero beaten to death in the street...

Trying to understand the feelings of the rioters is like trying to understand the feelings of a man who has his boot pressed against your throat. They don’t have hope? They don’t have a future? They don’t have plasma TVs? Who cares? Frankly, my dear, many of us do not have the stomach for sympathy right now. We just want to see the rioters banged up and stewing in their own filth.

Too many innocent people have suffered because of these riots. Too many have felt terror. Too many have had their world ripped apart. Too many have been burned from their homes. Too many have seen their children weep in terror…

Why did the riots happen? Who are the rioters? And what must be done to prevent them making our lives a misery? As the assorted goons get dragged off to court, much is being made of the almost infinite variety of scumbags. Grown men and children. Male and female. White and black. THE SONS OF SINGLE PARENTS and allegedly the daughter of a millionaire, plus a primary school teacher. An organic chef and university student are also alleged to have been involved. But as a Londoner, let me make a wild guess – THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THE RIOTERS WILL TURN OUT TO BE OF A VERY SPECIFIC TYPE, and it was this lost generation that made the riots possible.

As all law and order broke down on the streets of the capital, when the buildings burned and the children screamed and 999 calls meant nothing… Most of the rioters were… of the generation that is good for nothing and yet scared of nothing.

WITHOUT THE GANG CULTURE OF BLACK LONDON, NONE OF THE RIOTS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED – INCLUDING THE RIOTS IN OTHER CITIES LIKE MANCHESTER AND BIRMINGHAM WHERE MOST OF RIOTERS WERE WHITE. THE SNARLING, AMORAL PACK MENTALITY OF GANGS THAT ARE TOO OFTEN A SUBSTITUTE FOR FAMILY, SCHOOL AND WORK MADE THE RIOTS POSSIBLE. THESE YOUTHS WERE THE SHOCK TROOPS OF THE RIOTS, AND ITS INSPIRATION – even in the white riots of Piccadilly, Manchester…

THE IMAGES OF BLACK YOUTHS RUNNING WILD WILL NOT BE QUICKLY FORGOTTEN. We hear a lot about feral children. But when Tottenham erupted it was pointed out that there were many men in the area who are in their late twenties, and who have never worked.

It has always been hard for this community. Too many schools where IT IS NOT COOL TO STUDY. TOO MANY HOMES WHERE THERE IS NO FATHER FIGURE to put the fear of God in you…

Yes, and too many DREAMS BUILT AROUND HARD-CORE PORN that is now as difficult to get as electricity or running water. TOO MANY SONGS WHERE WOMEN ARE ‘BITCHES’ AND MEN MAKE THEIR POINT OF VIEW WITH EXTREME VIOLENCE. Too many Grand Theft Auto fantasies that make the powerless dream of being powerful. It is an unholy mess, and IT IS A NATIONAL TRAGEDY, AND I SEE NO END TO IT.

THERE ARE TOO MANY OUT THERE WHO HAVE NO RESPECT. TOO MANY WHO ARE UNEDUCATED, ILLITERATE AND STUPID. TOO MANY WHO DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG. TOO MANY WHO THINK THE RULES DO NOT APPLY TO THEM...

Social mobility is dead in this country now. Too many have no hope of self-improvement. There is an Old Etonian in 10 Downing Street who despises the idea of grammar schools. Because they are unfair…

Why did the riots happen? BECAUSE WE LIVE WITH A LOT OF SCUM IN OUR MIDST”.

Very well done for speaking out, Tony.

After all this time on the left-wing. The above is your fault, Tony, you do realise that, don't you? You’re the oh-so PC know-it-all who made it all happen. You’re the one who celebrated enrichment-by-"scum” and brought it here to make its "point of view with extreme violence.” It was you and yours, Tony, who caused this “national tragedy”.

And guess what, Tony? It won’t be your sort who puts “an end to it”, will it?

It will, as ever, be mine.

On 12 August 2011, Charles Moore said this in The Telegraph:

“Yes, yes, I blame the parents. Yes, and the slack teachers. And the greedy bankers, pop videos, mass immigration, social media, celebrity culture, MPs’ expenses… and no doubt lots of other nasty things, if you will give me a moment to think of them…

As someone who was a young journalist the last time a wave of disorder swept through the country, I am struck by a great change that has taken place. Contrary to what you may have read, this change is not that violence has increased. It was in 1981 that horrible things like attacking fire engines, trying to kill policemen and using riot as a cover for mass looting first showed themselves in mainland Britain. Although the technology is different today, allowing the criminals to bring trouble to more places, the ferocity of violence has been, if anything, slightly less bad than in Brixton or Toxteth 30 years ago.

No, the difference lies in public attitudes to what has happened… Then as now, of course, MOST ORDINARY CITIZENS WERE UNEQUIVOCAL IN THEIR DISGUST AT RIOTING. BUT IN 1981, THE PREVAILING CULTURE AMONG OUR RULING ELITES WAS DIFFERENT. THE WEIGHT OF THE BBC, LOCAL GOVERNMENT, TRADE UNIONS, OFFICIALDOM, CAME DOWN ON THE POLICE FOR BEING TOO HARSH, and, needless to say, on the prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, for the same crime.

The chairman of the Merseyside Police Authority supported the rioters, saying: ‘They would be apathetic fools if they didn’t protest’… In the capital, a young man CALLED KEN LIVINGSTONE TOOK OVER THE GREATER LONDON COUNCIL IN A POST-ELECTION COUP, AND BEGAN ATTACKING THE POLICE.

In the Commons on Thursday… faced with overwhelming public anger and opinion polls in which 90 PER CENT WANTED WATER CANNON AND A THIRD EVEN WANTED LIVE AMMUNITION FOR THE POLICE, MPS KNEW WHICH SIDE THEIR BREAD WAS BUTTERED. In 1981, an MP saying that he supported the police was making a controversial political statement. This week, he was uttering a commonplace. So great is the moral pressure that even the criminal justice system, which for years has said that it is utterly impossible to speed up its processes, has suddenly found that its courts can, after all, work through the night…

THE BASIC TREND OF PUBLIC POLICY SINCE THE BRIXTON RIOTS HAS BEEN TO MAKE IT HARDER FOR THE POLICE TO DEAL WITH CRIME. It has not been a question of money. Since 2000, public spending on the police in England and Wales has increased by 36 per cent in real terms. Numbers have risen by 14,000, plus 16,000 community support officers…

After Brixton in 1981, the Scarman report ushered in an era when POLICE RELATIONS WITH ‘COMMUNITIES’ – A EUPHEMISM FOR ETHNIC MINORITIES – BEGAN TO TRUMP THEIR DUTIES TO THE ONLY COMMUNITY WHICH MATTERS, THAT OF ALL CITIZENS. The Macpherson report in 1999 went so far as to make RACE AWARENESS ALMOST THE FIRST PRINCIPLE OF POLICING, ENUNCIATING THE INSANE, MCCARTHYITE DOCTRINE THAT ‘A RACIST INCIDENT IS ONE WHICH IS PERCEIVED TO BE RACIST BY THE VICTIM OR ANY OTHER PERSON’…

More recently, the rights of protest have been considered so important that the pressure group Liberty has actually sat in police control rooms monitoring the handling of demonstrations…

Some of the reforms were undoubtedly prompted by bad practices in the police. But THE OVERALL RESULT HAS BEEN RISK AVERSION, IN THE RANKS AND AMONG THE LEADERSHIP, WITH THE PUBLIC PAYING THE PENALTY. Sir Hugh Orde, the head of ACPO, who is trying to claim the credit for this week’s ‘surge,’ wrote in the Guardian this week that BRITISH POLICING IS ‘PREMISED ON HUMAN RIGHTS.’ IT ISN’T. SIR ROBERT PEEL INVENTED IT MORE THAN 150 YEARS BEFORE TONY BLAIR INJECTED HUMAN RIGHTS INTO BRITISH LAW. British policing is founded on exercising the minimum use of force required to keep the peace. THANKS TO THE IMPORTATION OF ‘HUMAN RIGHTS’ (from European countries where, oddly, the police are more brutal than our own), KEEPING THE PEACE HAS BECOME MUCH, MUCH HARDER.

WE ALL SAW THE POLICE HANGING BACK FROM MAKING ARRESTS DURING THIS WEEK’S TROUBLES. The reason is that, under current rules, arrests are a bureaucratic and legal nightmare. They require at least two officers and inordinate processing time. If there is ‘insufficient evidence,’ the police can be sued for false imprisonment. The scenes all over England this week were uniquely appalling in their scale, but in the character of the police response they were very like what happens in hundreds of towns every Saturday night. YOUNG PEOPLE TIP OUT OF THE PUBS BEHAVING BADLY, AND THE POLICE, WORRIED BY WHAT THEY MIGHT BE ACCUSED OF, JUST WATCH THEM. IT IS VISIBLE PROOF OF THE OLD SAYING THAT FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH IT IS NECESSARY ONLY FOR GOOD MEN TO DO NOTHING...

Mr Cameron also says he is against any inquiry. When one looks back at the last 30 years, one can see that inquiries have generally had bad effects. But THAT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALL REFLECTED THE FALSE PREOCCUPATIONS NOW DISCREDITED BY THIS WEEK’S HORRORS. If this Government chose the right person and the right subject – an investigation into how our laws and practices have come to prevent the police doing the job almost all of us want them to do – IT COULD START TO REVERSE THE TREND OF 30 YEARS AND RECOVER OUR STREETS FOR CIVILISATION.”

On 12 August 2011, Historian David Starkey said this on BBC2's Newsnight:

“I think what this week has shown is that PROFOUND CHANGES HAVE HAPPENED... THERE HAS BEEN A PROFOUND CULTURAL CHANGE. I have just been re-reading Enoch Powell, the 'rivers of blood' speech… ‘His prophecy was absolutely right in one sense. The Tiber didn't foam with blood, but flames lambent wrapped around Tottenham, wrapped around Clapham…

What has happened is that the substantial section of THE CHAVS… HAVE BECOME BLACK. THE WHITES HAVE BECOME BLACK. A PARTICULAR SORT OF VIOLENT, DESTRUCTIVE, NIHILISTIC GANGSTER CULTURE HAS BECOME THE FASHION.

Black and white, boy and girl operate in this language together. This language, which is wholly false, which is THIS JAMAICAN PATOIS THAT'S BEEN INTRUDED IN ENGLAND. THIS IS WHY SO MANY OF US HAVE THIS SENSE OF LITERALLY A FOREIGN COUNTRY."

In the 11 August 2011 Daily Telegraph article, The moral decay of our society is as bad at the top as the bottom, Peter Oborne, the broadsheet’s chief political commentator, said this:

“David Cameron, Ed Miliband and the entire British political class came together yesterday to denounce the rioters. They were of course right to say that the actions of these looters, arsonists and muggers were abhorrent and criminal... But there was also something very phony and hypocritical about all the shock and outrage expressed... MPs spoke about the week’s dreadful events as if they were nothing to do with them…

THE CRIMINALITY IN OUR STREETS CANNOT BE DISSOCIATED FROM THE MORAL DISINTEGRATION IN THE HIGHEST RANKS OF MODERN BRITISH SOCIETY. THE LAST TWO DECADES HAVE SEEN A TERRIFYING DECLINE IN STANDARDS AMONG THE BRITISH GOVERNING ELITE. IT HAS BECOME ACCEPTABLE FOR OUR POLITICIANS TO LIE AND TO CHEAT. AN ALMOST UNIVERSAL CULTURE OF SELFISHNESS AND GREED HAS GROWN UP.

It is not just the feral youth of Tottenham who have forgotten they have duties as well as rights. So HAVE THE FERAL RICH OF CHELSEA AND KENSINGTON. A few years ago, my wife and I went to a dinner party in a large house in west London. A security guard prowled along the street outside…

Most of the people in this very expensive street were every bit as deracinated and cut off from the rest of Britain as the young, unemployed men and women who have caused such terrible damage over the last few days... I’d guess that FEW OF THEM BOTHER TO PAY BRITISH TAX IF THEY CAN AVOID IT, AND THAT FEWER STILL FEEL THE SENSE OF OBLIGATION TO SOCIETY THAT ONLY A FEW DECADES AGO CAME NATURALLY TO THE WEALTHY AND BETTER OFF.

Yet WE CELEBRATE PEOPLE WHO LIVE EMPTY LIVES LIKE THIS...

Sir Philip Green’s businesses could never survive but for Britain’s famous social and political stability, our transport system to shift his goods and our schools to educate his workers. Yet SIR PHILIP, WHO A FEW YEARS AGO SENT AN EXTRAORDINARY £1 BILLION DIVIDEND OFFSHORE, SEEMS TO HAVE LITTLE INTENTION OF PAYING FOR MUCH OF THIS. Why does nobody get angry or hold him culpable?... HE SURELY FACES ETHICAL AND MORAL QUESTIONS JUST AS MUCH AS DOES A YOUNG THUG WHO BREAKS INTO ONE OF SIR PHILIP’S SHOPS AND STEALS FROM IT.

Our politicians... are just as bad. THEY HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES PREPARED TO IGNORE COMMON DECENCY AND, IN SOME CASES, TO BREAK THE LAW. DAVID CAMERON IS HAPPY TO HAVE SOME OF THE WORST OFFENDERS IN HIS CABINET. Take the example of Francis Maude, who is charged with tackling public sector waste – which trade unions say is a euphemism for waging war on low-paid workers. Yet Mr MAUDE MADE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF POUNDS BY BREACHING THE SPIRIT, THOUGH NOT THE LAW, SURROUNDING MPS’ ALLOWANCES.

A great deal has been made over the past few days of the greed of the rioters for consumer goods, not least by Rotherham MP DENIS MACSHANE… A MAN WHO NOTORIOUSLY CLAIMED £5,900 FOR EIGHT LAPTOPS…

Labour MP Gerald Kaufman asked the Prime Minister to consider how these rioters can be ‘reclaimed’ by society. Yes, this is indeed the same GERALD KAUFMAN WHO SUBMITTED A CLAIM FOR THREE MONTHS’ EXPENSES TOTALLING £14,301.60, WHICH INCLUDED £8,865 FOR A BANG & OLUFSEN TELEVISION. Or take the Salford MP Hazel Blears, who has been loudly calling for draconian action against the looters. I find it very hard to make any kind of ethical distinction between BLEARS’S EXPENSE CHEATING AND TAX AVOIDANCE, AND THE STRAIGHT ROBBERY CARRIED OUT BY THE LOOTERS.

The Prime Minister showed no sign that he understood that something stank about yesterday’s Commons debate. He spoke of morality, but only as something which applies to the very poor… He appeared not to grasp that THIS SHOULD APPLY TO THE RICH AND POWERFUL AS WELL...

CAMERON IS HIMSELF GUILTY OF FAILING THIS TEST. IT IS SCARCELY SIX WEEKS SINCE HE JAUNTILY TURNED UP AT THE NEWS INTERNATIONAL SUMMER PARTY, EVEN THOUGH THE MEDIA GROUP WAS AT THE TIME SUBJECT TO NOT ONE BUT TWO POLICE INVESTIGATIONS. Even more notoriously, HE AWARDED A SENIOR DOWNING STREET JOB TO THE FORMER NEWS OF THE WORLD EDITOR ANDY COULSON, EVEN THOUGH HE KNEW AT THE TIME THAT COULSON HAD RESIGNED AFTER CRIMINAL ACTS WERE COMMITTED UNDER HIS EDITORSHIP…

THESE DOUBLE STANDARDS FROM DOWNING STREET ARE SYMPTOMATIC OF WIDESPREAD DOUBLE STANDARDS AT THE VERY TOP OF OUR SOCIETY…

The so-called feral youth seem oblivious to decency and morality. But SO ARE THE VENAL RICH AND POWERFUL – TOO MANY OF OUR BANKERS, FOOTBALLERS, WEALTHY BUSINESSMEN AND POLITICIANS…

The rioters have this defence: they are just following the example set by senior and respected figures in society. Let’s bear in mind that many of the youths in our inner cities have never been trained in decent values. ALL THEY HAVE EVER KNOWN IS BARBARISM. Our politicians and bankers, in sharp contrast, tend to HAVE BEEN TO GOOD SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES AND TO HAVE BEEN GIVEN EVERY OPPORTUNITY IN LIFE.

SOMETHING HAS GONE HORRIBLY WRONG IN BRITAIN… THE CULTURE OF GREED AND IMPUNITY WE ARE WITNESSING ON OUR TV SCREENS STRETCHES RIGHT UP INTO CORPORATE BOARDROOMS AND THE CABINET. IT EMBRACES THE POLICE AND LARGE PARTS OF OUR MEDIA. IT IS NOT JUST ITS DAMAGED YOUTH, BUT BRITAIN ITSELF THAT NEEDS A MORAL REFORMATION.”

"The moral decay of our society is as bad at the top as the bottom."

It is much, much worse, Peter. The white, British criminals at the bottom behave as they do because of drugs, dumbing-down, the breakdown of family life, the destruction of British industry and the jobs that went with it and the acceptance and promotion of criminal values encouraged and legislated for by the criminals at the top. The nasty, asocietal criminals at the bottom are the unwitting footsoldiers of the genocidal criminals at the top in their war against the British way.

THEY destroyed British industry; imposed the alien hordes and political correctness upon us; drugged us up, dumbed us down; lied us into war with Iraq and hogged at the trough with Satanically greedy bankers and media moguls with a sinister agenda. They should be tried for treason, found guilty and...

Only the Nationalist community has, over the years, consistently been pointing out the “moral decay” Peter Oborne refers to here.

Unfortunately, because political correctness demanded no attention be paid to what the "neo-Nazi" had to say, we are only now finding out the extent to which our betters have set the standard of "moral disintegration," "greed" and "universal selfishness."

We could have had our country back 43 years ago when Enoch Powell spoke up. We let the chance slip and so, every now again, the pieces of the jigsaw that refuse to fit the indigenous picture act up.

If, henceforth, the British people managed to find the courage and the will, despite the PC Crowd's threats and exhortations, to check out what ALL shades of opinion are saying, then things might just turn out OK. If they don't, then it will be business as usual for “venal rich and powerful" who inhabit the “culture of greed and impunity.”

On 11 August the West Indian writer and broadcaster, Darcus Howe, said this during a BBC interview with Fiona Armstrong:

“What I was certain about, listening to my grandson, and my son, is that SOMETHING VERY, VERY SERIOUS WAS GOING TO TAKE PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY. Our political leaders had no idea. The police had no idea…

I don’t call it rioting; I CALL IT AN INSURRECTION OF THE MASSES OF THE PEOPLE.”

On 11 August 2011, The Guardian reported thus:

"The man hailed as a 'community hero' for trying to stop youths in Ealing setting fire to bins during Monday night's riots has been named by police, more than two days after he was taken to hospital with INJURIES THAT HAVE LEFT HIM IN INTENSIVE CARE. Richard Mannington Bowes, 68, has been identified by police investigating the attack during which he was knocked to the ground and suffered a fractured skull...

Releasing new CCTV footage of the suspected attacker, police urged the man to 'do the decent thing' and give himself up. He is described by police as BLACK, with a big build."

Richard died the following day.

On 11 August 2011, David Cameron said this in The House of Commons:

"Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were organised via social media. We are working with the police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality."

On 25 August 2011, The Guardian told us that subsequent analysis of how Twitter was used during the unrest showed "little immediate evidence that the social network was used to orchestrate disorder."

On 11 August 2011, Kevin Maguire said this in The Mirror:

"Looters, arsonists and marauding gangs deserve strong condemnation. So too do banksters and assorted casino financiers who destroy more livelihoods."

On 11 August 2011, The Tom Chivers article, 'UK riots: Left and Right look for simple answers to a complex problem' appeared in The Telegraph.

In this he, ironically, said:

"It’s the welfare state! It’s the cuts! It’s Labour subsidising single mothers! It’s Thatcher undermining society! It’s Left, it’s Right, it’s liberal intelligentsia, it’s conservative callousness, it’s Their Fault, it’s Their Fault, it’s Their Fault."

In order of precedence, it's traitorous mainstream politicians, it's the treacherous and subversive mainstream media; it's the Global Elite/international financiers who own the aforesaid; it's the PC Crowd; it's the politicians' pet footsoldier (the immigrant); it's the dumbed-down, drugged-up and brainwashed sheeple who keep on voting those who despise them into power.

The destructive machinations of the above aren't necessarily easy to spot. The politicians, for example, are good at blaming circumstances, events, other people, for their own shortcomings. Here's some very obvious stuff the establishment (politician/media Baron/PC Crowd/Big Businessman/Financier) deliberately made happen against the wishes of the majority:

MASS IMMIGRATION; the Iraq War; privatisation and the devastation of British industry; the ceding of national sovereignty to the EU, resulting in the supremacy of EU law; the elevation of political correctness as an insanely self-critical artificial religion. I don't suppose the politicans deliberately caused Black Wednesday to happen but George Soros, the Jewish financier, DID. Again, the politcians' and the financiers didn't deliberately cause sub prime, the credit crunch and the world-wide recession but the ineptitude of the one and the greed of the other DID. Commonsenseless ineptitude reared its ugly head again when the Tories' advised the adoption of private pension plans and Gordon Brown raided the pension schemes as soon as he took office leaving many much worse off. It really does go on and on. And then there is Murdoch, the expenses' scandal; the sexual grooming of our little girls by immigrants; the ill treatment of our elderly in care home and hospital; drugs and the riots.

Like I say, it goes on and on and on. Most of all though, the politicians are to blame. They are to blame for just about everything. They had the power to change things. Unfortunately for most of the native Britons, over the course of the last sixty years, whether through gross incompetence or downright evil intent, they changed things for the very much worse.

In August 2011, former Cambridge University student, Jacob Bard-Rosenberg offered his advice on Twitter, regarding ways England’s rioters might be able to avoid arrest.

The Jewish Chronicle of 11 August 2011 quoted him thus:

"For anyone heading to places where riots are… MASK UP. PROPERLY, NOT JUST A HOOD… BINDMANS SOLICITORS IF YOU GET NICKED… IF YOU'RE PICTURED GET RID OF YOUR CLOTHES AND CHANGE YOUR APPEARANCE… The aggressors are the state and bankers; the victims are the poor."

When the clean-up efforts began, he said:

"Stop with the disgusting Big Society politics. As I said, RIOTCLEANUP WILL JUST PUSH DOWN THE PRICE OF LABOUR."

“Jacob Bard-Rosenberg is the son of David Rosenberg, one of the founding members of the Jewish Socialists' Group in the 1970s. Julia Bard joined the group in 1983 and the couple married two years later. They are still active in the organisation…

Both he (Jacob) and his brother are part of a group of bloggers for a left-wing intellectual site called ‘The Third Estate’. When the twins celebrated their barmitzvah, the event involved poet Michael Rosen acting as MC and a Marxist magician for entertainment. The simcha was held in the banqueting suite of the Trades Union Congress.”

'Bindmans Solicitors' was set up in 1974 by the leading human rights lawyer Sir Geoffrey Bindman.

In an article written in The Guardian of October 20 1993, Bindman wrote:

"The bogey of 'martyrdom' has inhibited action against those who purvey blatantly racist propaganda… WHAT IS NEEDED IS A NEW OFFENCE OF RACIAL HARASSMENT…

THE COMMISSION FOR RACIAL EQUALITY AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES NEED THE POWER TO SEEK INJUNCTIONS on behalf of individuals or groups… PRACTICAL CHANGES IN THE LAW ALONG THESE LINES… would do far more to re-assure the targeted minorities and deter their aggressors than any amount of pious but empty condemnation.

They could be enacted in a short statute, the Racial Violence and Harassment Act, or the necessary clauses, WHICH ARE ALREADY DRAFTED IN ANTICIPATION, could be included in Mr Howard's next Criminal Justice Bill. Several MPS ARE WILLING TO INTRODUCE A PRIVATE MEMBERS' BILL IF THE GOVERNMENT STILL REFUSES TO ACT."

Geoffrey Bindman has been at the heart of the instiution of pro-immigrant, anti-indigenous legislation into UK law for more than four decades.

Bindman and the Bard-Rosenbergs are, of course, Jewish.

Check out The Runnymede Trust and Race Law, here:

"When the clean-up efforts began", Jacob Bard-Rosenberg's fellow anarchist, Donnacha DeLong, the President of the National Union of Journalists no less, was noted on Facebook coversing with an anarchist ally, Al Mikey.

Here's the exchange:

Al Mikey: ‘[What about] the reactionary part of these clean-ups like in Clapham Junction that have overtly classist twists to them. What’s your take on them?’

Donnacha DeLong: ‘THEY‘RE SCUM, it’s just important to realise that THEY'RE NOT ALL REACTIONARY SCUM'."

Scum, eh?

That's what your upper-crust anarchist, who just happens to hold the top union job in journalism, thinks of the rest of us, folks.

I wonder if the NUJ and this "left-wing intellectual site called The Third Estate" see themselves as pillars of the establishment.

They sure look like it from here.

On 10 August 2011, the Christina Odone’s article, ‘Immigrants love this country more than we do,’ (subtitled, ‘The Poles, Turks and Somalis have shown up the natives during the riots‘) appeared in The Telegraph:

In this, Odone said:

“In Southall, west London, a crowd of turbaned Sikh men stood guard outside their temples last Tuesday night. Some held swords, others hockey sticks as they defied the looters to approach. None dared. Over in Whitechapel, rioters were held back by 1,500 Muslim men, mostly Bengali, but also Somalis, emerging from the mosque after evening prayers. In Ealing, Monika Gnoinska, a Pole who came here 20 years ago, and her daughter Agneska, 27, decided that they couldn’t stand by and ‘watch these gangs wreck the country.’ Armed with brooms and dust-pans, they joined their eastern European neighbours in a collective clean-up operation...

Turks in Dalston, Poles in Ealing, and Kurds in Haringey stood up to the thieving thugs at night, then spent the day helping repair the damage.

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ETHNIC COMMUNITIES HAVE EMERGED AS THE HEROES OF THE WEEK’S RIOTS... THEY HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES TO BE NOT JUST AS LAW-ABIDING AS THE ANGLO-SAXONS, BUT FAR MORE INSPIRING.

For many Britons, who have long looked down on the newcomers, or mocked them for their Borat values, this will come as a surprise – probably an uncomfortable one. The burgeoning immigrant community has been caricatured as anti-gay, anti-women, and dangerously intolerant. The sight of Polish Catholics, Punjabi Sikhs or Muslim Turks has filled liberal hearts with fears of social polarisation, and of religion intruding into the public square. Traditionalists suspect that the Muslim influx, in particular, threatens to destroy the already fragile hold of our Judaeo-Christian traditions: George Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, has warned the Government against taking in groups who fail to ‘understand our Christian heritage.’

The response to the riots should humble these sceptics. As a cluster of youths stood guard outside the mosque in Whitechapel, Josie Ensor, a Daily Telegraph reporter, asked if they had been moved to defend their own people. They shook their head: they wanted to protect THEIR COUNTRY, not just their community. THEIR PATRIOTISM, which echoes that of the Poles in Ealing, is striking, especially in an area where the BNP and English Defence League boast a growing presence…

Coverage of the riots has repeatedly focused on the damage to the ‘community’. This is ironic, given the total disregard for neighbours and local businesses that the mob has shown: THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS COMMUNITY FOR THE OWNER OF THE DELI IN DALSTON WHO HAS WITNESSED THE DESTRUCTION OF HER FAMILY-RUN SHOP AND THE TERRORISING OF HER ELDERLY FATHER. SOCIAL TIES OF DUTY, RESPECT, TRUST – IF THEY STILL EXISTED – HAVE GONE UP IN SMOKE...

Yet in the tight-knit enclaves peopled by Kurds, Sikhs, Poles and others, a strong sense of community does survive. Everyone knows each other and what they’re up to; and everyone shares a clear belief system. It is an environment that can prove distinctly uncomfortable for non-conformists: passing judgment is as much part of this existence as halal butchery or carp at Christmas. But it also provides an invaluable safety net that makes the state’s assistance redundant. It is mutual obligations, not government incentives or punishments, that motivates members of such communities. Dependence on the state is largely seen as unacceptable.

Equally importantly, THE ALTERNATIVES TO THE FAMILY SO CHERISHED BY LIBERALS have never taken root: marriage is the model they live by and aspire to. Divorce is almost nil, single motherhood ditto; extended families living together are routine. Strong immigrant families support their children, but also supply them with a lifelong moral compass. Many of those young people probably recognised, among the masked figures setting cars on fire and smashing shops, their schoolmates and neighbours. Perhaps they attend the same clubs or cinemas as the hooded boys and girls running riot. They may even have the same failing grades, and struggle under the same burden of illiteracy.

Yet these children are not morally illiterate. They know that looting is wrong. They also know that crime is punished: not necessarily by the police, but by parents, siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins and neighbours. In the familiar surroundings of Ealing, Southall, and Birmingham, social stigma turns rule-breakers into pariahs.

OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS, IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES HAVE CHALLENGED THE BRITISH WAY OF LIFE. THEY HAVE DARED THEIR HOSTS TO REVIVE THEIR OWN MORIBUND COMMUNITIES, TO REBUILD BROKEN FAMILIES, AND TO ADHERE TO A MORAL CODE. CAN THE NATIVES MEASURE UP?”

It’s almost as though immigrants never rioted, isn’t it?

Almost as though they never commit any crime. \it's almost as though the Muslim never plays the paedophile with our little girls, the Poles haven’t nicked all the work and every bloody foreigner under the sun haven’t gobbled up our council housing and corner shops.

"Dependence on the state is largely seen as unacceptable."

Oh really?

So if state benefits were stopped tomorrow, the hardy, self-reliant immigrant communities wouldn't bat an eyelid? Remind me again, Christina, weren't the cuts blamed by many for the rioters' behaviour?

"In the familiar surroundings of Ealing, Southall, and Birmingham, social stigma turns rule-breakers into pariahs."

I see.

That'd be why the police are so successful at finding out who the 'rule-brakers' are within the immigrant communities, would it? Because their relations are always so keen on handing them in to the police? Jesus, Christina, what were you on when you wrote this crap?

"Immigrants love this country more than we do!" she says, without a trace of irony.

Hey, Christina! Who's this WE? You're an immigrant yourself, for goodness sake!

"The Poles, Turks and Somalis have shown up the natives during the riots."

As if we hadn't had enough of the pathologically ungrateful immigrant over the course of the last few days, along comes a foreign correspondent to top it all off.

Let me tell you something you already know, Christina. Neighbourhood saviours of the native variety turned out en-masse in Enfield and Eltham and were demonised by the mainstream press as far-right vigilantes attempting to "hijack" the riots for doing so. In such majority white enclaves as these, the police clamped down on Whitey for demonstrating his communal spirit and dispersed the assembled bravehearts. The Sikhs, the Muslims and the Poles did not suffer such treatment. I mean, can you really not imagine what modern 'Britsh justice' would do to a white, British street defender if the cops caught him wielding a Sikh sword? There's one law for us in this country and there's another for the immigrant. Such law is exercised by the mainstream media every bit as much as it is by the politician.

By the way, Christina, there is, at this moment an elderly gentleman who lies at death's door for doing his bit to disperse a posse of firestarting rioters. (Richard Mannington Bowes has since died) He's white. Would he be one of those who had failed to "measure up"?

Always remember, folks, according to this immigrant journalist, we are a "moribund" lot who "adhere" to no "moral code". On the other hand, the immigrants are "heroes" and "martyrs" whose "patriotism... is striking". And there we were thinking that most of the arsonists, most of the looters and most of those out and about having a riotously good time at the expense of the English peoples were of immigrant origin. Oh, what fools are we, eh?

Your article, Christina, manages to be nauseatingly PC and Brit-loathingly racist at the same time.

Disgusting to the power of n, I say. Perhaps it's time you looked for a job at The Guardian, the BBC or The Mirror?

10 August 2011, The Daily Mail headlined one article thus, 'Forced to strip naked in the street: Shocking scenes as rioters steal clothes and rifle through bags as people make their way home'.

The lead photograph shows a young white man being forced to strip to strip naked by a larger black man. The Mail had earlier posted another picture of a naked white woman who had also been forced to strip. In the link below, that picture has been removed.

White man forced to strip by Black

On 10 August 2011, Andrew Gilligan said this in The Telegraph:

"The big black boy rode his bike straight at me, crashing me off my own and leaving us both tangled up on the ground. Then four more of them were racing towards me, clawing at my legs to get them off my bike, kicking me in the head as I tried to hold on. Two minutes later, it was all over…

Bleeding a little, I thought I might as well call 999. It was a recorded message. After four and a half minutes, a tired man answered. ‘THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO,’ he said. ‘You know what’s going on. We have to give priority to saving people’s lives. I suggest you just go home.’

He was right, of course. I was in Hackney - which, that evening at least, was ALAW-FREE ZONE. That’s the worst thing about riots. Across much of London on Monday night, if someone had decided to break down your door and rape your daughter, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTHING TO STOP THEM. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO ONE TO CALL.

When I was mugged, I was on my way home from a day in Tottenham, listening to the stories of the people who had lost far more and been at far greater risk than me, burned out of their homes at 30 seconds’ notice. They called 999 too, frantically, desperately, as the riot moved closer. There were 100 police just up the road. The emergency operator could do nothing but listen to their terror…

Even on Monday, the victims of Tottenham, black and white, were already tired of outsiders blaming racism, police brutality, or cuts… The real reason for the rioters’ behaviour is much simpler: BECAUSE THEY CAN.

Forget BlackBerry Messenger. After seeing — on television — HOW MUCH LEEWAY THE LOOTERS OF TOTTENHAM WERE ALLOWED, every criminal and every excitement-seeking child in London took note. By the next day, critical mass had been achieved. Disorder had erupted on a scale much more difficult to suppress than the original outbreak.

There are, and always have been, plenty of people keen to break the law… But in London, the geography of fear is particularly potent. Unlike Los Angeles or Paris, the riots are not happening in ghettos where nobody goes. They are happening amid the organic gastropubs and latte bars. Alongside poverty, INNER LONDON IS FULL OF THE SORT OF MIDDLE-CLASS PROGRESSIVES WHO AGREE WITH KEN LIVINGSTONE THAT THE RIOTERS ‘FEEL NO ONE AT THE TOP OF SOCIETY, IN GOVERNMENT OR CITY HALL, CARES ABOUT THEM OR SPEAKS FOR THEM.’

I predict A LOT OF THOSE PEOPLE, AS THEY COWER BEHIND THEIR SASH WINDOWS, ARE REVISING THEIR VIEWS TONIGHT. THE HARDENING OF LIBERAL OPINION IN LONDON IS PALPABLE, and is taking even the likes of Boris Johnson by surprise. ..

It’s a beautiful, sunny evening. But our area is empty, like so much of inner London, as WE WAIT IN OUR HOMES WITH THE TVS ON TO DISCOVER IF THEY WILL BE COMING FOR US TONIGHT.”

Andrew Gilligan once said this:

"Once people live with others of a different race, they learn not to fear them."

I wonder whether he has changed his mind on that one? Here's something else he said:

"The BNP's core weakness... is its own stupidity. The vast majority of its members are sad, ineffectual and damaged losers."

That's what a puffed-up media darling says before he gets done over by those the "stupid," "ineffectual," "damaged" BNP "losers" got done over by decades before.

I'm not a member of the BNP but I know plenty of folks that are.

One or two are a***holes, 99 percent are the salt of the earth. Those Mr Gilligan once described as "stupid" have every reason to celebrate his well-merited comeuppance. Knowing the 99 percenters as I do. They will almost certainly sympathise.

As for me, I'll be ho-ho-hoing with the a***holes.

On 9 May 2011, Home Secretary Theresa May, said this:

“The disorder we've seen is at a level that hasn't been seen for some years in this country… There is no excuse for these levels of criminality and it needs to be dealt with. These people need to see that there are consequences for their actions. We need robust policing but we also need to ensure that justice is done through the courts… The way we police in Britain is not through use of water cannon. THE WAY WE POLICE IN BRITAIN IS THROUGH CONSENT OF COMMUNITIES.”

The Consent of communities like those made up of gang members?

Good luck with that one, Theresa.

On 9 August 2011, a female shopkeeper whose store had been looted said this when interviewed by the BBC:

"It's disgusting. They are feral rats. What are their parents doing?"

Dad is busy impregnating his latest 'breeder' with another child he will not bother to raise and Mum's out looking for another absent-dad-to-be.

On 9 August 2011, Amed Pelle posted three messages on his Facebook 'wall', shortly before serious disorder broke out in Nottingham.

'NOTS RIOT WHOSE ONIT?' 'Kill one black youth, (Mark Duggan) WE KILL A MILLION FEDZ, RIOT TIL WE OWN CITIES'. 'RIOTING 2NYT anyone want anything from Flannels?'

Pelle pleaded guilty to a breach of section 44 of the Serious Crime Act 2007
and was sentenced to two years nine months in a young offenders' institution.

On 9 August 2011, The Daily Mail reported thus:

“SPORADIC RIOTING, LOOTING AND ARSON ATTACKS BROKE OUT ACROSS THE LENGTH AND BREADTH OF LONDON YESTERDAY AS THE ORGY OF VIOLENCE WHICH BEGAN IN TOTTENHAM AT THE WEEKEND SHOWED NO SIGN OF ABATING. From Hackney to Croydon, gangs of teenagers fought running battles with police, making roadblocks from burning cars and ransacking shops…

In Notting Hill, The Michelin-starred restaurant The Ledbury… whose regular guests include Michael Winner, Kate Moss and Lily Allen, also came under attack as an estimated 100 masked youths ransacked the restaurant and robbed diners of their expensive jewellery and belongings.

News of the carnage first broke around 11pm on Twitter when twitter user @harrywilkinson tweeted about his parents' anniversary dinner being interrupted by looters in the exclusive Notting Hill restaurant - which was rated 34th in the Word's Best Restaurant list.

'Bunch of people smashed the windows in and came in and tried ripping watches/wallets jewellery off customers'…

Masked rioters on BMX bicycles armed with batons attacked a crowded London bus during the evening rush-hour last night, chasing terrified commuters as they tried to escape. The thugs, some as young as eight, forced the driver to stop the double-decker by pelting it with champagne bottles stolen from a nearby Tesco.

About 40 passengers – some carrying screaming toddlers – burst out of the exits and sprinted away. Several commuters fell to the ground during the stampede as ABOUT 20 BLACK MEN WEARING BALACLAVAS AND RIDING BMXS CHASED THEM. As they ran, one woman screamed:

'THEY ARE THREATENING US WITH BIG STICKS. WE HAVE TO RUN FOR OUR LIVES. What have we done to them? We are innocent people just trying to get home’…

Kara Mahoney said GANGS WERE TARGETING WHITE PEOPLE to rob them:

'ABOUT FIVE WHITE PEOPLE JUST GOT BEATEN AND ROBBED. There is a group of them. They hit a photographer and stole her cameras. She had blood gushing down her nose.'

ELSEWHERE RIOTERS WERE SAID TO BE TARGETING WHITE PEOPLE… As night struck, THE POLICE LINE BACKED OFF AND THE STREETS BECAME LAWLESS.

Earlier gangs attacked cyclists and motorcyclists, pushing them over as they tried to get home… THE ATTACKERS WERE MOSTLY BLACK YOUTHS…

Communities were now turning on each other as they watched their livelihoods go up in flames…

A 200-strong teenage mob tore apart stores along the main shopping street in Clapham Junction, south-west London… One bystander said:

'I saw a middle-aged woman walking away with five bags from Debenhams. People are helping themselves to carrier bags. Another woman was calmly flicking through earrings. THERE IS NOT A SINGLE POLICE OFFICER HERE. It is mostly young men wearing masks, but there are children as young as ten and hundreds of onlookers. IT IS LIKE A WAR ZONE.'

Crowds of young people streamed away from Clapham with their arms full of shoes, designer clothes and electronic goods, leaving discarded goods on the ground…

Black smoke could be seen across South London as House of Reeves, on Reeves Corner, was razed. Police at the scene of the Croydon disturbances were investigating a 'non-fatal' shooting, after a 26-year old man was found in a car with gun shot wounds. (He has since died)…

RESIDENTS COMPARED THE SCENE IN CROYDON TO THE BLITZ… A woman and small child were taken by ambulance to hospital with burns and breathing difficulties after a shop below their flat was set ablaze. The pair were seen screaming above Greggs bakery in the High Street as youths wearing balaclavas carried homemade Molotov cocktails through the streets.

Hundreds of teenagers had earlier smashed up a bus before setting it on fire. Wheelie bins were also set alight and placed in the middle of the road. A LINE OF POLICE STOOD HELPLESS a quarter of a mile away in Rye Lane.

A terrified wife also told how HER RUGBY-PLAYING HUSBAND WAS DRAGGED OFF HIS MOTORBIKE BY 12 HOODED YOUTHS WHO BEAT HIM UP AND TOOK HIS BIKE. Another witness to the violence, teacher Matthew Yeoland, said…

‘The kids aren’t happy. They hate the police. For the kids, IT’S THEIR ONLY WAY OF VENTING THEIR ANGER. THEY'VE ALL GOT BLACKBERRYS and gangs have got together. IT’S LIKE A WAR ZONE AND THE POLICE WEREN'T DOING ANYTHING. THERE WERE TOO MANY PEOPLE AND NOT ENOUGH POLICE’…

Ealing people were being forced out of their cars by rioters who then set them alight… Disturbances were also last night reported in Woolwich and Lewisham and have also been seen in Oxford Circus, Brixton, Waltham Forest, Islington, Clapham Junction and Ponders End…

Merseyside Police said it had been dealing with 'a number of isolated outbreaks of disorder'… Riot police were working to contain a crowd of about 300 people, many of whom were youths with their heads and faces covered… The witness said:

'They are stopping cars, PULLING PEOPLE OUT OF THE CARS, THEN SETTING FIRE TO THE VEHICLES. Every car they have walked past has been absolutely trashed, with all of the windows smashed’…

Around 11pm West Midlands Police confirmed that a police station in Holyhead Road in Handsworth, Birmingham, was on fire… Housewife Lynne Tamburro, said:

‘There are police running round everywhere shouting, it is terrifying’…

Imarn Aamin had come to Birmingham for the day from London on business said:

'This is ridiculous, I live in London and IT FEELS LIKE A WAR ZONE THERE. Now it is happening in Birmingham. When is it going to stop?'

As the evening wore on in Birmingham, scenes became increasingly ugly as looting and rioting continued… Innocent passers-by were dragged into the violence. ONE YOUNG MAN WAS SET UPON BY A MOB WHO PUNCHED AND KICKED HIM BEFORE TAKING ALL HIS POSSESSIONS…

POLICE AGAIN MASSED NOWHERE NEAR THE GROUPS CAUSING TROUBLE."

And the award for the most unnecessary observation of the night goes to Assistant Chief Constable Sharon Rowe, whom The Mail quoted as saying:

"Our communities have made it clear to us that they do not want this kind of violence in their city".

Now that's something we would never have imagined if you hadn't told us, Sharon.

On 8 August 2011, Leo McKinstry reported thus in The Express:

“THE SCENES IN TOTTENHAM ON SATURDAY NIGHT WERE LIKE A WAR ZONE...

As flames licked the sky gangs of masked youths rampaged through the streets in an orgy of destruction and violence. Buildings were attacked, shops looted and vehicles set ablaze, including a bus which burnt with such ferocity that the road itself was damaged. Innocent bystanders were assaulted while the police were subjected to a barrage of missiles and firebombs...

Even before the violence had subsided the excuse-making had started. Handwringing apologists for this thuggery bleated about poverty and deprivation in Tottenham. The rioters, they wailed, were ‘disenfranchised’ black youths, who constantly had to endure ‘systemic racism.’

All too predictably many tried to make political capital out of the carnage, painting the event as the anguished cry of a people suffering from Tory oppression. One resident complained that, thanks to the Government, ‘our culture is suffering a deep attack against education and community values.’

In the same vein Chris Williamson, the Labour MP for Derby North, asked:

‘Why is it Tories never take responsibility for the consequences of their party’s disastrous policies?’

Such language is outrageous. There can be absolutely no excuse for this brutal behaviour. What we saw was not a political act but an outbreak of vicious nihilism. Only a blinkered Left winger, fuelled by the dogma of Marxism, could pretend that looting from a carpet store and committing arson against a pub represent heroic blows against a racist establishment…

The portrayal of the rioters as political victims only strengthens the climate of irresponsibility that prevails in large parts of our inner-cities, where every problem from unemployment to knife crime is seen as the fault of the Government.

But THE REFUSAL TO HOLD INNER-CITY BLACK YOUTHS TO ACCOUNT IS ITSELF UTTERLY RACIST. Guilt-tripping Left-wingers trumpet their love of equality and their abhorrence of racial prejudice. Yet WHEN IT COMES TO CRIMINALITY THEY INDULGE IN THE MOST GROTESQUE DOUBLE-STANDARDS, REFUSING TO DEMAND THE SAME STANDARDS OF CONDUCT FROM ETHNIC MINORITIES THAT THEY EXPECT FROM WHITE PEOPLE.

JUST AS THEY TURN A BLIND EYE TO ISLAMIC MISOGYNY AND EXTREMISM SO THEY SEEK TO EXCUSE OR IGNORE THE SINISTER SIDE OF BLACK YOUTH CULTURE, WHETHER IT BE THE MACHO SWAGGER OF GANGSTA RAP OR THE CRUEL INDIFFERENCE TOWARDS PATERNAL RESPONSIBILITIES…

OVER THE 26 YEARS SINCE THE LAST MAJOR RIOTS IN TOTTENHAM THE POLICE HAVE BENT OVER BACKWARDS TO ESTABLISH BETTER RELATIONS WITH ETHNIC MINORITIES. Indeed it could be argued that the police’s obsession with the promotion of multi-cultural diversity has inhibited tough action against criminals for fear of accusations of prejudice.
In the past five years THE MET’S DIVERSITY DIRECTORATE SPENT £25MILLION ON PROPAGANDA AND TRAINING TO IMBUE OFFICERS WITH THIS IDEOLOGY…

If young blacks and Asians are disproportionately represented in prison and arrest statistics it is not because of inherent racism. IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO COMMIT CRIME. FIGURES FOR INNER LONDON, FOR INSTANCE, SHOW THAT MORE THAN 80 PER CENT OF MUGGING VICTIMS IDENTIFIED THEIR ASSAILANTS AS BEING FROM AN ETHNIC MINORITY.

Moans about lack of resources are just as misplaced. GOVERNMENTS OF EVERY HUE HAVE POURED A FORTUNE INTO URBAN REGENERATION IN RECENT DECADES…

Moreover, the generosity of the welfare state means complaints about poverty lack credibility. It is precisely the high level of benefits that helps encourage mass joblessness. According to independent research, ALMOST 50 PER CENT OF YOUNG BLACKS ARE UNEMPLOYED.

The Tottenham riots expose THE NONSENSE OF PROPAGANDA ABOUT THE RICHNESS OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY. SOME OF THE WORST ASPECTS OF ALIEN CULTURES HAVE BEEN IMPORTED HERE THROUGH MASS IMMIGRATION.

WHAT WAS THE MOST GENTLE, WELL-ORDERED CIVILISATION IN THE WORLD NOW HAS AREAS OF EXTREME VIOLENCE AND FEAR. WE WILL ONLY REBUILD OUR SOCIETY IF WE STOP LIVING IN A CLIMATE OF DENIAL, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND INVERTED, EXCUSE-MAKING RACISM.”

On 8 August 2011, Mary Riddell said this in her Telegraph article, ‘London riots: the underclass lashes out’

"LONDON'S RIOTERS ARE THE PRODUCTS OF A CRUMBLING NATION AND AN INDIFFERENT POLITICAL CLASS THAT HAS TURNED ITS BACK ON THEM…

The police shot a black guy in suspicious circumstances. Feral kids with no jobs ran amok… Over a few days in which attacks became a contagion the capital city of an advanced nation has reverted to a Hobbesian dystopia of chaos and brutality…

The Tottenham summer, featuring children as young as seven, is an assault not on a regime of tyranny but on the established order of a benign democracy. One question now hangs over London’s battle-torn high streets. How could this ever happen?

Among several obvious answers, one is a failure of policing. The evidence so far points to MORE IGNOMINY FOR THE RUDDERLESS MET, AS DOUBTS EMERGE OVER WHETHER MARK DUGGAN, WHOSE DEATH INSPIRED THE INITIAL RIOTS, FIRED AT POLICE. The stonewalling of Mr Duggan’s family precipitated the crisis, and the absence of officers to intervene in an orgy of looting led to a breakdown of order suggestive of THE LAWLESS BADLANDS OF A FAILING STATE...

THE SECOND ALLEGED CULPRIT IS ETHNICITY. But, as David Lammy, Tottenham’s MP, has said, these are no race riots.”

Despite the predominance of the Black race when it all kicked off.

“It is no coincidence that the worst violence London has seen in many decades takes place against the backdrop of a global economy poised for freefall. The causes of recession set out by J K Galbraith in his book, The Great Crash 1929, were as follows: bad income distribution, a business sector engaged in ‘corporate larceny‘, a weak banking structure and an import/export imbalance. All those factors are again in play.

In the bubble of the 1920s, the top 5 per cent of earners creamed off one-third of personal income. TODAY, BRITAIN IS LESS EQUAL, IN WAGES, WEALTH AND LIFE CHANCES, THAN AT ANY TIME SINCE THEN. LAST YEAR ALONE, THE COMBINED FORTUNES OF THE 1,000 RICHEST PEOPLE IN BRITAIN ROSE BY 30 PER CENT TO £333.5 BILLION.

EUROPE’S LEADERS, OUR OWN PRIME MINISTER AND CHANCELLOR INCLUDED, WERE PARKED ON SUN-LOUNGERS AS LONDON BURNED. Although the epicentre of the immediate economic crisis is the eurozone, SUCCESSIVE BRITISH GOVERNMENTS HAVE COLLUDED IN INCUBATING THE POVERTY, THE INEQUALITY AND THE INHUMANITY NOW EXACERBATED BY FINANCIAL TURMOIL…

The “lost generation” is mustering for war… Those terrorising and trashing London are also a symptom of a wider malaise. In uneasy societies, PEOPLE POWER – WHETHER OFFERED OR STOLEN – CAN BE TOXIC. MOST OF THE 53 PER CENT OF E-EMOCRATS CALLING TO HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY REINSTATED (OF WHOM 8 PER CENT WOULD OPT FOR FIRING SQUAD OR GAS CHAMBER) WOULD NEVER DREAM OF TORCHING A POLICE CAR, BUT THEIR IMPULSES HARDLY COHERE EITHER WITH DAVID CAMERON’S UTOPIAN AMBITIONS.

What price for the Big Society as Tottenham, the most solid of communities, lies in ruins? The notion that small-state Britain can be run along the lines of Ambridge parish council by good-hearted, if under-funded, volunteers has never seemed more doubtful. Nor can Ed Miliband take much credit for his unvaried focus on the ‘queezed middle’, rather than on a vote-losing underclass that politicians ignore at their peril and at ours…

A section of young Britain – the stabbers, shooters, looters, chancers and their frightened acolytes – has fallen off the cliff-edge of a crumbling nation. The failure of the markets goes hand in hand with human blight. Meanwhile, the view is gaining ground that SOCIAL DEMOCRACY, WITH ITS SAFETY NETS, ITS COSTLY EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE FOR ALL, IS UNSUSTAINABLE IN THE BLEAK TIMES AHEAD…

As Adam Smith recognised, a well-ordered society (can never) develop when a sizeable number of its members are miserable and, as a consequence, dangerous.”

On 7 August 2011, The Guardian’s Paul Lewis gave this account of the outbreak of rioting in north London:

“Asked if the Metropolitan police were slow to respond to the Tottenham riots, Commander Adrian Hanstock replied: 'No, not at all.' That account, given outside Scotland Yard on Sunday morning, did not correlate with events that had unfolded several miles away in north London hours earlier.

What began as a gathering of around 200 protesters demanding answers over the death of Mark Duggan, who was shot dead by police on Thursday, culminated 12 hours later in a full-scale riot that saw brazen looting spread across north-London suburbs.

By 5.00am, at Tottenham Hale retail park, teenagers were still emerging from shops into the dawn sunshine, stuffing bags and trolleys with stolen goods and running into back streets… At exactly the same time, looting was taking place nearly two miles away, on Wood Green high street, where approximately 100 people had spent hours burning cars and breaking into high-street shops. Some were even filling suitcases.

As for police – who had claimed to have ‘contained’ disturbances six hours earlier – THERE WAS NONE IN SIGHT…

Throughout the borough, shops, pubs, banks and even residential properties had been ransacked and torched… These were by all accounts THE WORST DISTURBANCES OF THEIR KIND SINCE THE 1995 BRIXTON RIOTS…

The crowd that gathered outside Tottenham police station at 5.30pm were by all accounts peaceful. The protesters consisted of local residents, community leaders, and some of Duggan's relatives, including his fiancee, Semone Wilson.

Protesters complained that police and the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which is investigating Duggan's death, were not communicating with them. Wilson, they said, had been forced to call the IPCC to identify the body; other relatives first discovered Duggan had been killed when they saw his photograph on the news…

The demonstration, which organisers expected to last no more than an hour, was initially fronted by women, who surrounded Wilson, who had three children with 29-year-old Duggan. What happened over the next four hours is subject to debate, but what is clear is that tensions gradually escalated, as POLICE MADE ONLY LIMITED ATTEMPTS TO TALK TO THE DEMONSTRATORS.

Some who were present described seeing a younger, more aggressive crowd arrive around dusk, some carrying weapons. ‘THESE PEOPLE WERE PREPARED,’ said Bill Dow, a bystander. ‘THEY HAD FIREWORKS AND PETROL CANS’…

Eventually a chief inspector came out and spoke to Duggan's relatives but, organisers said, he conceded a higher-ranking officer should talk to them. Stafford Scott, a community organiser, said POLICE WERE ‘ABSOLUTELY’ CULPABLE for not responding to their requests for dialogue.

'I told the chief inspector personally that we wanted to leave before nightfall,' Scott said. 'If he kept us hanging around after nightfall, IT WAS GOING TO BE ON HIS HEAD. WE COULDN'T GUARANTEE IT WOULDN'T GET OUT OF CONTROL.'

Scott said the chief inspector promised a higher ranking official would speak to the crowd. When no one came, organisers said some younger men turned their anger to two police cars, which were set on fire...

Others present said the spark for the rioting was a specific incident involving a 16-year-old woman, who stepped forward to confront police around 8.30pm, demanding answers, but was attacked with shields and batons.

'They beat her with a baton, and then the crowd started shouting 'run, run', and there was a hail of missiles,' said Anthony Johnson, 39. 'She had been saying: 'We want answers, come and speak to us.''

Laurence Bailey, who was in a nearby church, described seeing the girl throw a leaflet and what may have been a stone at police. Bailey said the girl was then 'pounded by 15 riot shields'. 'She went down on the floor but once she managed to get up she was hit again before being half-dragged away by her friend,' he said…

In a YouTube clip showing burning police cars and violent pitched battles more than an hour later, a rioter can be heard goading others: 'Didn't you see the girl getting roughed by the Feds, man? Come on.'

By 11pm, a double-decker bus had been set alight, and shops – mostly local businesses – along the high road broken into. THROUGHOUT THE NEARBY ESTATES AND TERRACED STREETS, TEENAGERS WALKED BRAZENLY WITH STOLEN TVS, STEREOS, MOBILE PHONES AND FOOD.

The make-up of the rioters was racially mixed. Most were men or boys, some apparently as young as 10. But families and other local residents representative of the area – BLACK, ASIAN AND WHITE, INCLUDING SOME FROM TOTTENHAM'S HASIDIC JEWISH COMMUNITY – ALSO GATHERED TO WATCH AND JEER AT POLICE…

Police, some on horseback, began to gain control of a 200-metre stretch of the high road by around midnight, allowing fire-engines to tackle the raging fires. The rioters, however, simply dispersed into back streets or moved further north, where they pillaged an Aldi supermarket before setting it on fire. The blaze, along with a fire that engulfed a branch of Carpetright, lit up the sky.

'Shall I be honest? FUCK THE POLICE,' SAID REEKO YOUNG, 24, who had gathered with friends on a nearby side street to share images of the riots on mobile phones.

Young said he was not taking part in the violence, but like many had been enraged by the rumours circulating about Duggan's death.

He showed one of several BlackBerry 'BB' messages being disseminated, suggesting Duggan had been shot in the face at point-blank range.

His friend Jermaine Smith, 24, had a different message, purporting to have been leaked from a Tottenham police officer who revealed – implausibly – that the police weapon used to kill Duggan had still not been recovered…

'People feel the murder of Mark was very unjust,' he said. 'We all know police and the lengths they are willing to go to. We don't believe their stories about how he died, and I don't believe the community believe it either’…

In the early hours the disturbances escalated, with looting fanning out in all directions.

Around 1.30am, BBC and Sky News crews were attacked south of the high road. Both news organisations pulled all their staff out of the area for their own safety. Some of the most shocking scenes occurred once the television cameras had departed. South-east of the high road, groups stormed Tottenham Hale retail park. In quick succession they smashed their way into outlets belonging to Boots, JD Sports, O2, Currys, Argos, Orange, PC World and Comet…

North-west of the high road, youths in military-style balaclavas and wielding sticks made burning barricades, attacking motorists who approached shops being looted. But it was the contagion to nearby Wood Green that proved most surreal.

From around 2.30am, young people began breaking into high-street stores. WITH NO INTERVENTION FROM POLICE AT ALL, AND LOOTERS IN CONTROL OF THE AREA FOR AROUND THREE HOURS, IT WAS LEFT TO RESIDENTS TO INTERVENE…

Large HMV and H&M outlets were also broken into. Most looters attempted to conceal their faces with scarves, but the theft was casual, with people taking their time to pick through items and – in one front garden – swapping stolen goods.”

On 7 August 2011, ‘English Frank’ tweeted thus:

"Everyone up and roll to Tottenham f*** the 50 [police]. I hope 1 dead tonight."

'Sonny Twag’ tweeted:

"Want to roll Tottenham to loot. I do want a free TV. Who wudn’t."

'Mrs Lulu’ tweeted:

"Brehs [men] asking who’s down to roll Tottenham right now, to get justice. – RIP Mark x."

‘Ashley AR’ tweeted:

"I hear Tottenham’s going coco-bananas right now. Watch me roll."

A policeman was asked why more hadn't been done to stop the rioters.

He replied:

"The way we look at it, we're damned if we do, we're damned if don't."

On 7 August 2011, Laurence Mann, David Cameron’s political Private Secretary, replied thus to Anita Segar, a senior Conservative Party member and President of the Society for Graduates at Oxford University.

She he had written to the Prime Minister in July threatening to resign from the party in protest over his failure to fulfil manifesto pledges demanding a referendum.

“WE HAD A REFERENDUM ON THAT ISSUE IN 1975, (36 years ago!) which produced a very clear result. There is also one argument, in particular, against holding such a referendum that we find irrefutably powerful, namely that most people in our country want to say neither ‘yes’ to everything from the EU, nor ‘no’ to everything. (Oh? Just like in the General Election, you mean? You never seem to have a problem with the ‘yes’/’no’ thing then)…

We have, in the past, done well in ensuring that Britain can participate in the collective good carried out by the EU, such as free markets, while keeping out of things that we believe would be bad for our country. For example, we are not part of the Schengen Zone but we have kept control of our own border controls, (so that’s why 600,000 immigrants are piling into our country every year, is it?) just as, crucially, we have kept the pound.

We should not lose sight of the EU’s very useful work, such as ensuring that all the nations of Europe are equipped to face the biggest challenges of the 21st Century: global competitiveness, (there’a world-wide recession on) global warming and global poverty. (Global poverty? Oh, you mean the fork out tens of billions for African dictators scam? The EU’s behind that too? I thought that was just you hug-a-hoodies!)

These are compelling arguments for why we believe Britain should be an active member…

A simplistic in/out referendum, posing an artificial choice that does not do justice to the range of views in the country, would be highly unlikely to settle the question of Britain’s membership of the EU at all.”

Yes, it would. In poll after poll a majority want out. THAT is why the mainstream won’t ever let us have a referendum. They know they wouldn’t get the result THEY want and the globalist project would be set back.

Tim Montgomerie, the editor of the ConservativeHome website responded to the Laurnece Mann‘s letter as most of us would have done:

“It is both ridiculous and insulting for Cameron’s office to suggest the 1975 referendum means we don’t now need a vote. For a start, ANYONE NOW AGED UNDER 53 WAS NOT ABLE OR ELIGIBLE TO VOTE IN 1975. Just as importantly, the EU was then described as the Common Market or the European Economic Community. SINCE THEN THE COMMON MARKET HAS MOVED VERY SUBSTANTIALLY TOWARDS A POLITICAL UNION.”

On 6 August 2011, Tony Parsons said this in The Daily Mirror:

“NORWAY IS FAMOUS FOR ITS TOLERANCE, ITS LIBERAL VALUES AND ITS INTERNATIONALISM.

But Norway is also fiercely proud of its national identity. And if the poisonous, hate-filled views of Anders Breivik are to be thwarted, then Norway, like other countries, including this one, has to ask itself some hard and difficult questions.

How much integration can a country reasonably expect from its immigrant population? HOW DOES A MULTI-CULTURAL NATION LIVE PEACEFULLY WHEN THE HOST NATION AND IMMIGRANTS SHARE RADICALLY DIFFERENT VIEWS ON, FOR EXAMPLE, THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN SOCIETY? HOW DOES A COUNTRY DEAL WITH THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION ON HOUSING, JOBS, EDUCATION, TRANSPORT AND HEALTH CARE?

These are not easy questions to answer – they are not even easy questions to ask. SOME PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THAT ASKING THEM AT ALL PLAYS INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIKES OF ANDERS BREIVIK... I believe that until we start asking these difficult questions, the NEO-NAZI SCUM will always be on the rise.”

So, as long as self-righteous, left-wing sneerers like you 'start asking' the 'difficult questions' that will be acceptable will it, Tony?

You do know that Breivik hates the Nazis, don't you? In his 'manifesto' he says that, if he had been around in 1933, he would have assassinated Hitler himself if he could. Perhaps, when you talk about 'neo-Nazi scum,' you're thinking of the average British Nationalist? You know, the bloke who has 'been asking' the 'difficult questions' now for more than half a century?

These would be the same questions that you and the rest of the bandwagon jumpers sunddenly want asked at the eleventh hour, when it's safe to do so.

Ladies and gentlemen, I do hope you're beginning to see through the PC Crowd.

I mean, really, the disingenuousness is as breathtaking as it is dishonest.

On 6 August 2011, the novelist, Gerald Seymour, said this in The Daily Mail:

"Wootton Bassett is so different. The civilian population has taken over, reclaimed these young men who are brought into the town on their way to an Oxford mortuary...

Dominant among the silent watchers are the men and women of humble housing estates, of the British Legion clubs, the shop staff and the bank workers who line the High Street four or five deep — or the grey-haired and grizzled bikers in their leather jackets.

There are so many people who have never heard a shot fired in anger but feel obliged to stand in solidarity with the mourners, and so many who know next to nothing of Basra and Al Amarah and the communities of Helmand province, but would feel a sense of shame if they missed a fallen soldier coming through.

The military are there, but are sidelined. DIGNITARIES ARE ABSENT, AND NOT MISSED.

However, not for much longer will the crowds, quiet in respect, be on the High Street. By next month, the nearby base into which the bodies are flown, RAF Lyneham, will be winding down for closure, and all further fatalities will be taken to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire. The hearses, then, will avoid Wootton Bassett…

Families I’ve spoken to, and the NCOs who escort them, have told me of the comfort the bereaved take from the solidarity of the crowds on the pavements. The support is tangible but not welcome at the top echelon. SENIOR OFFICERS WILL BE HAPPY TO GET RID OF THE WOOTTON BASSETT BUSINESS. They believe the stop in the town, not more than one minute, to be ‘mawkish’, ‘sentimental’, no doubt similar to the ‘emotional incontinence’ with which a columnist described the reaction to Diana’s death, and, above all, THEY FEAR IT IS LEECHING AWAY THE NATION’S TOLERANCE OF THESE OVERSEAS ADVENTURES.

Also THEY DON’T LIKE THE NATION BEING REMINDED OF WHAT MANY LINING THE ROUTE CALL ‘THESE BLOODY BOMBS’, OR THESE ‘BASTARD THINGS’ THAT TAKE SO MANY OF THE LIVES, AND MAIM SO MANY MORE. The roadside explosives that wrought havoc in Iraq, and those buried and hidden beside tracks and in compound walls through Helmand in Afghanistan, are a new weapon in warfare, terrifying to troops and creating nightmarish tensions. They have stripped away the superiority of the training of Nato troops and their equipment. The bombs have tilted the balance between the resources of western forces and a peasant militia, perhaps to the level where such wars are unwinnable.

THREE OUT OF EVERY FOUR REPATRIATIONS HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF DEATHS FROM SO-CALLED IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES. In addition, there are hospital wards and rehabilitation units crammed with the cruelly injured amputees, struck down by IEDs. Alongside them are the hidden time-bomb victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder… Many of the PTSD symptoms of acute depression, alcohol-dependency and violence will surface when the soldier is back home...

I’ve been at Wootton Bassett when the bodies of Ammunition Technical Officers — the bomb disposal people — have come through the High Street. Some have been killed when, exhausted from the number of jobs heaped on them, they have made one fatal mistake while defusing a device. Others have been targeted by Taliban snipers...

It is wishful thinking to hope that Government will intervene and offer mourning families more of an occasion on the new route from Brize Norton. THEY’LL DRAW THE LEAST POSSIBLE ATTENTION TO THE PRICE PAID FOR INVOLVEMENT IN THE QUAGMIRES OF IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN…

Whatever the future route, however MUCH GOVERNMENT MIGHT WISH TO KEEP HIDDEN THE SORRY TOLL OF ITS FOREIGN ADVENTURES, there are, thank God, so many good people who will make sure the families know that the sacrifice of a loved one in that awful dust and dirt of a faraway place will not be forgotten.”

On 6 August 2011, Dominic Sandbrook said this in The Telegraph:

“Exactly 80 years ago, international capitalism stood on the verge of meltdown… The collapse of the banking system in the summer of 1931 sent shockwaves through Europe, bringing governments to their knees and thousands out onto the streets. In the United States, an increasingly careworn president and his congressional critics fought a bitter battle over government spending and tax rises.

And in Britain, with the Labour government broken by the economic crisis, a Conservative-dominated coalition imposed the deepest spending cuts in a generation, slashing benefits in an attempt to restore confidence in the nation’s finances. With the banks refusing to lend, and millions of people thrown out of work, capitalism itself seemed utterly discredited.

In other countries, many turned to the far Right, swelling the ranks of the Nazis and their allies. In Britain, a generation of intellectuals turned their backs on capitalism, placing their faith in THE UTOPIAN IDEALISM OF SOVIET COMMUNISM AND CLOSING THEIR EYES TO THE HORRORS OF STALIN’S BARBARIC REGIME…

In the summer of 2011, with the eurozone in chaos, the British economy stagnant and the U.S. crippled by debt, with social mobility at a standstill and millions of ordinary families squeezed until they can barely breathe, it feels disturbingly familiar. In the past two days alone, stock markets have been in free-fall across the capitalist world. With investors manifestly losing confidence in Spain and Italy, two of Europe’s biggest economies, A SECOND DEVASTATING WORLD RECESSION CANNOT BE RULED OUT…

Last year BARCLAYS BOSS BOB DIAMOND POCKETED AN INCREDIBLE £6.5 MILLION - AND THAT'S ON TOP OF HIS £8 MILLION-PLUS ANNUAL PAY PACKAGE And with bankers still pocketing gigantic bonuses and Europe swept by a wave of austerity, even the Right are beginning to wonder whether THE SYSTEM IS INTOLERABLY LOADED IN FAVOUR OF RICH METROPOLITAN ELITES.

When Margaret Thatcher, one of capitalism’s most passionate champions, ran for the Tory leadership in 1975, she defined her values as ‘the encouragement of variety and individual choice, the provision of fair incentives and rewards for skill and hard work, and a belief in the wide distribution of individual private property’. And when she walked into Downing Street four years later, she promised to ensure that ‘hard work pays’. But you do not have to be a card-carrying Left-winger to see why millions of people — not just in Britain but across the world, feel completely cheated.

WHEN MOST OF US CONTEMPLATE THE RESULTS OF THE BANKERS’ GREED, FOR EXAMPLE, TALK OF ‘FAIR INCENTIVES AND REWARDS’ SEEMS A SICK JOKE. IN EVERY CORNER OF EUROPE, ORDINARY FAMILIES, THROUGH ABSOLUTELY NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, ARE PAYING AN INTOLERABLE PRICE FOR THE OUTRAGEOUS AVARICE OF THE FINANCIAL ELITE.

Recent figures show that City bonuses came to a staggering £14 billion last year, with one executive, Barclays boss Bob Diamond, pocketing an incredible £6.5 million, and that’s on top of his £8 million-plus annual pay package…
Three years ago, the Government spent £500 billion to bail out the collapsing banking system. And now, while the bankers toast themselves with vintage champagne, the rest of us are picking up the bills. But the bankers’ greed is only one symptom of a wider malaise. The stark truth is that MILLIONS OF ORDINARY FAMILIES FEEL THE SYSTEM GIVES THEM NO CHANCE OF SUCCESS. The facts are simply unanswerable. A child born in 1971 has less chance of moving up the social ladder than one born in 1951. On top of that, THE GAP BETWEEN RICH AND POOR HAS GROWN STEADILY SINCE THE 1970S, WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST INCREASES COMING DURING THE 13-YEAR NEW LABOUR REGIME.

Half a century ago, during the Fifties and Sixties, grammar schools, job opportunities in manufacturing and the death of deference meant that working-class children felt they had a decent chance of getting on.

And in their different ways, state-school educated prime ministers such as Harold Wilson, Ted Heath, Jim Callaghan, Margaret Thatcher and John Major gave the impression that anybody could make it, regardless of their background. Even in 1931, during the last great crisis of capitalism, Britain was run by a prime minister, Ramsay MacDonald, who was the illegitimate son of a Scottish labourer and a poor housemaid. At a time when it would have been easy to imagine that power belonged exclusively to the rich, MacDonald was a shining example of social mobility.

NOBODY COULD POSSIBLY LOOK AT OUR LEADERS AND DRAW THE SAME CONCLUSION TODAY. From Cameron, Clegg and Osborne — respectively the son of a millionaire stockbroker, a banker and the heir to a baronetcy, to Ed Miliband and Ed Balls, one the son of a North London intellectual, the other the privately educated son of a professor, BRITISH POLITICS HAS BECOME THE PLAYTHING OF A TINY SELF-REGARDING ELITE, TOTALLY OUT OF TOUCH WITH ORDINARY FAMILIES.

Looking at our political class, you begin to suspect that modern capitalism is loaded in favour of those who already enjoy wealth and power.”

On 5 August 2011, The Examiner told us this:

“Fukushima nuclear power plant radiation recordings of external gamma radiation have been so high this week, THEY WENT OFF SCALE said veteran nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson on Thursday after the famous physicist, Dr. Chris Busby told the Japanese people this week that RADIOACTIVE AIR CONTAMINATION THERE IS NOW 300 TIMES THAT OF CHERNOBYL AND 1000 TIMES THE ATOMIC BOMB PEAK IN 1963, INFERRING THAT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE NOW DYING FROM FUKUSHIMA RADIATION, INCLUDING PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES…

Dr Janette Sherman, a highly respected physician and acknowledged expert in radiation exposure who has reported A NORTH-EAST UNITED STATES 35% BABY DEATH SPIKE SINCE FUKUSHIMA FALL-OUT REACHED THE NATION, concurs with estimates that world wide, THE CHERNOBYL KILL IS ONE MILLION PEOPLE KILLED TO DATE reported NOVA News. Extrapolating, WORLDWIDE DEATHS BY FUKUSHIMA RADIATION COULD EVENTUALLY BE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, BECOMING THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DEPOPULATION EVENT TO DATE.

Dr. Chris Busby, world famous physicist, said tests conducted at the respected Harwell Radiation Laboratory in England demonstrate that AIRBORNE RADIATION IN JAPAN IS 1,000 TIMES HIGHER THAN RADIOACTIVE “FALLOUT” AT THE PEAK IN 1963 OF H-BOMB DETONATIONS BY NUCLEAR POWERS. IN MARCH, BUSBY HAD ESTIMATED THAT FUKUSHIMA RADIATION TO BE 72,000 TIMES GREATER THAN WHAT THE UNITED STATES RELEASED AT HIROSHIMA...

As Americans struggle to survive amid the economic depression, Obama has allocated 39 BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE U.S. NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY, an industry that peace and justice human rights defender Dr. Caldicott has called ‘NUCLEAR INSANITY’ AND THE ‘DESTROYER OF WORLDS‘."

Don’t you wonder why our televison screens and newspapers aren’t full of it? Well, that’s the powers-that-be for you. Never tell us anything until it’s too late.

Fukushima radiation level infers millions dying

Joanne Wilkins gave her seven-year-old a tin of Vaseline to apply to her dry lips and she took this to school.

When Ellie-Maye went to use it, it was confiscated because it is not a prescribed medicine. On 5 August 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Joanne thus:

“THIS IS HEALTH AND SAFETY GONE MAD. WHERE HAS COMMON SENSE GONE? I can’t believe how my daughter was humiliated. This harmless ointment was taken away in front of all her friends. She was made to feel naughty and as a result was close to tears...

She (Joanne’s pharmacist) recommended… the basic original Vaseline… is colourless and odourless. She could apply it as often as she wished and it comes in a tiny pocket-sized tin that Ellie-Maye could easily carry in her schoolbag. In fact, Ellie-Maye needed help opening the tin and the first teacher of the day helped her and had no problem with the Vaseline at all. But at lunchtime, when she went to apply the Vaseline again, a second teacher she asked to help open it said she shouldn’t have it in school at all. Then in front of all Ellie-Maye’s friends, she took it away…

Ellie-Maye was really upset and I thought there must be some mistake. But he (The headmaster, Graham Prince) just confirmed that unless the Vaseline was prescribed then she was not allowed to use it in school. I was shocked, especially when he suggested one way round it was to ‘medicate’ Ellie-Maye by taking her out of school. Alternatively, I could come to the school to apply it. I thought it was ridiculous that I would be expected to find time off work or that Ellie-Maye’s education should suffer in some way. Anyone of any age can buy Vaseline in the supermarket. As she had my permission to use it… It seemed such an over-the-top reaction.”

Joanne was forced to have the Vaseline prescribed with a doctor’s note at a cost of £15.

“It seemed ridiculous as the little tin to buy costs under £1. However, as Ellie-Maye still suffers from dry lips and I don’t want her to suffer, I’ve had no choice.”

Don’t you just love the Health-and-Safety Nazi? Some day soon we will have our very own UK Nuremburg, just for them.

On 5 August 2011, Leo McKinstry said this in The Express:

“The disastrous social revolution inflicted by mass immigration continues to gather pace. The flood tide of new arrivals to our shores is still rising DESPITE THE OVERWHELMING OPPOSITION OF THE BRITISH PUBLIC to this far-reaching change. Sadly for our country THERE IS NO SIGN THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS THE GUTS TO TACKLE THE PROBLEM.

DAVID CAMERON CAME TO POWER PROMISING TO REVERSE LABOUR’S CATASTROPHIC APPROACH WHEREBY IMMIGRATION CONTROLS WERE ALL BUT ABOLISHED. SO FAR HIS WORDS HAVE PROVED TO BE EMPTY RHETORIC.

Only last week the Government announced that 160,000 asylum seekers have been granted the right to remain here. Not because there is any justification to their claims but because bureaucrats are desperate to reduce the huge backlog of nearly 500,000 asylum cases. Pathetically just 10 per cent of all bogus refugees have been deported from this country while the Home Office has also admitted it has lost track of another 75,000 asylum-seekers, now swelling the vast army of illegal immigrants in our towns.

Though ministers deny it, the Government has effectively instituted an amnesty for a large swathe of asylum-seekers. THIS IS AN ADMISSION OF COMPREHENSIVE FAILURE, A SURRENDER TO THE FORCES OF CHAOS.

It sends out the message to economic migrants from all over the world that Britain is the softest of touches. The 160,000 refugees given leave to remain last week will impose an oppressive new burden on our society. Not only will they now be eligible to claim the full panoply of welfare benefits THEY WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO BRING OVER ALL THEIR RELATIVES…

Ministers and officials could get tough if they wanted, as they have in many areas. When it comes to immigration, however, even THE CONSERVATIVES ARE PARALYSED BY THE DOGMA OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. Eager to brandish THEIR ENTHUSIASM FOR DIVERSITY AND TERRIFIED OF ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM they do nothing. Indeed UNDER THE COALITION THE SITUATION IS BECOMING EVEN WORSE.

Recent figures show that the number of immigrants who arrived over the past year was 586,000, THE LARGEST TOTAL IN HISTORY AND MORE THAN TWICE THE POPULATION OF A MAJOR CITY SUCH AS NOTTINGHAM.

Immigration Minister Damian Green, a classic wet Tory, confessed THE SYSTEM IS ‘OUT OF CONTROL’ though his handwringing tones hardly inspired confidence that he would sort it.

More sickening still have been the opportunistic attacks by Labour. When the amnesty was revealed the party denounced the Government’s ‘woeful mismanagement’ which meant ministers were ‘failing to deliver.’ The hypocrisy of this statement could hardly be more shameless for IT WAS THE LAST LABOUR GOVERNMENT THAT REALLY LET IMMIGRATION RIP, AS PART OF A DELIBERATE LEFT-WING MISSION TO TRANSFORM THE VERY FABRIC OF BRITISH SOCIETY.

As Labour Downing Street aide Andrew Neather put it, the AIM WAS ‘TO RUB THE NOSES OF THE RIGHT IN DIVERSITY.’ Tragically Labour succeeded in its goal.

SINCE 1997 OUR NATION HAS BEEN CHANGED OUT OF ALL RECOGNITION. MUCH OF OUR URBAN ENVIRONMENT DOES NOT EVEN RESEMBLE BRITAIN ANY LONGER BUT IS MORE LIKE LAHORE OR LAGOS. IN LARGE PARTS OF CITIES SUCH AS LEICESTER OR BRADFORD BRITONS ARE NOW ALIENS IN THEIR OWN LAND.

FOR ALL THE NOISY PROPAGANDA FROM THE METROPOLITAN ELITE ABOUT THE JOYS OF MULTICULTURALISM, MASS IMMIGRATION HAS SHATTERED OUR SOCIAL COHESION, PARTICULARLY BECAUSE MOST NEW ARRIVALS HAIL FROM AFRICA AND ASIA.

OUR SOCIETY IS NOW BESET BY PROBLEMS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN UNTHINKABLE ONLY A COUPLE OF DECADES AGO, SUCH AS ISLAMIC EXTREMISM, AFRICAN WITCHCRAFT, HONOUR KILLINGS, THE SPREAD OF SHARIA LAW, GANGLAND SHOOTINGS AND STABBINGS, ETHNIC STRIFE AND BALLOT BOX FRAUD.

Only last week health chiefs admitted that BRITAIN NOW HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF TUBERCULOSIS IN EUROPE, WITH THE DISEASE ‘OUT OF CONTROL’ IN LONDON.

The return of TB, the Victorian killer ailment that was meant to have been conquered by the mid- 20th century, is due entirely to immigration since 73 PER CENT OF CASES ARE SEEN IN PEOPLE FROM ABROAD. Contrary to claims of the ideologues THERE HAS BEEN NO ECONOMIC GAIN FROM IMMIGRATION. IN FACT THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE.

Public services have been put under intolerable pressure as ENGLAND HAS BECOME THE MOST OVERCROWDED PLACE IN EUROPE. FOR THE WORKING-CLASS, IMMIGRATION HAS MEANT LOWER WAGES AND MASS UNEMPLOYMENT SINCE 80 PER CENT OF NEW JOBS GO TO MIGRANTS. IT IS THE ECONOMICS OF THE MADHOUSE TO THROW MILLIONS OF BRITONS ON THE DOLE WHILE FILLING VACANCIES FROM OVERSEAS.

Another fashionable myth cultivated by Left-wingers is the idea that all migrants come here to work. In truth MIGRANTS HAVE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER RATES OF WELFARE DEPENDENCY AND JOBLESSNESS THAN INDIGENOUS BRITONS, NOT LEAST BECAUSE MANY OF THEM ARE ATTRACTED BY OUR INSANELY GENEROUS BENEFITS SYSTEM…

What is really required is a complete freeze on immigration, at least for a couple of years, accompanied by a rigorous programme of deportations of illegal migrants… Our country is full up. It is time the Government recognised that reality.”

Indeed, Leo.

And isn't it time that people like yourself started admitting that the British Nationalist has been saying what you’re saying now for more than forty years? Isn't it time for you to come clean about those who really care about their country?

And always have done.

On 3 August 2011, in an article titled, ‘Gay Irish Presidential Candidate Quits Over Ex-Lover’s Rape Scandal’, The Irish Business Times quoted David Norris thus:

"The motivation to write the letter was out of love and concern. I WAS EAGER TO SUPPORT SOMEONE WHO WAS VERY IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE. It is very sad that in trying to help a person I love dearly, I MADE A HUMAN ERROR…

I do not regret supporting and seeking clemency for a friend, but I do regret giving the impression that I DID NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT COMPASSION FOR THE VICTIM OF EZRA'S CRIME…

The fall-out from HIS DISGRACEFUL BEHAVIOR has now spread to me and is in danger of contaminating others close to me, both in my political and personal life. It is essential that I act decisively now to halt this negative process. I do not regret supporting and seeking clemency for a friend, but I do regret giving the impression that I DID NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT COMPASSION FOR THE VICTIM OF EZRA'S CRIME."

The crime in question was the statutory rape of a 15-year-old Palestinian boy by Norris’ former lover, Jewish peace activist, Ezra Yitzhak Nawi.

Norris had written a letter on Irish parliamentary letterhead pleading for clemency for Yitzhak, claiming he was a good person who had been lured into a trap and should not have pleaded guilty. Subsequently, however, Nawi acknowledged his guilt and, five years later, was convicted and jailed for three months.

The week prior to the revalation of the letter, Norris had been leading in the Presidential popularity polls.

On 3 August 2011, in an article titled, ‘Ezra Nawi rape conviction went unreported in Israel,‘ the journal.ie reported thus:

“The Jerusalem plumber has however been in trouble with the law on numerous occasions. As a political activist HE WAS CONVICTED OF THE ILLEGAL USE OF WEAPONS, VARIOUS DRUGS OFFENCES, ENTERING A CLOSED MILITARY AREA, THREATENING BEHAVIOUR, ILLEGAL TRANSPORTATION OF A FOREIGNER AND DISTURBING A PUBLIC SERVANT…

In 2007, he was arrested and later convicted of assault after getting into an altercation with Israeli troops in the West Bank. He told the Irish Times at the time that he was a thorn in the side of Israeli authorities. In 2009, he told the New York Times: ‘I don’t consider my work political. I don’t have a solution to this dispute. I just know that WHAT IS GOING ON HERE IS WRONG. This is not about ideology. It is about decency’…

Yesterday, it emerged that in relation to that incident in the West Bank, NORRIS HAD TABLED A MOTION TO THE OIREACHTAS JOINT COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS IN 2009 IN WHICH HE EXPRESSED ‘CONCERN AT THE TRIAL OF EZRA YIZHAK NAWI AND THE DANGEROUS PRECEDENT THAT MAY BE SET’

HE ARGUED THAT NAWI WAS BEING FRAMED.”

On 6 August 2011, The Irish Times told us this:

“The former partner of David Norris has accused Israeli officials of disclosing details of his 1997 conviction for statutory rape… Mr Nawi, an Israeli Jew… said he had no doubt that ISRAEL WAS THE SOURCE… Giving his view on how the story appeared in the Irish media, he said:

‘I think that some ISRAELI OFFICIALS OR EMBASSY OR SOMEBODY ELSE IS INVOLVED IN THIS. There is no doubt about it. Maybe also other countries… I think [as I have been involved] in the struggle against occupation, THEY ALL THE TIME USE THIS AGAINST ME and against my friends and against my struggle’…

As he was involved in politics, it was a ‘very juicy story’ for those who opposed his views…

He said he had no doubt his former partner would have made a very good president.”

I don’t know about that, Ezra.

A gay Senator who speaks up on behalf of his gay, paedophilic former lover? Whose paedophilia he tries to get expunged from the record? Not content with that, he tables a motion to the committee on Foreign Affairs on his erstwhile lover’s behalf, despite the fact that he must have known he had been “in trouble with the law on numerous occasions” previously?

Not someone whose judgement I’d want to to trust the affairs of state to, Ezra.

The Irish populace, however, seem to think differently.

On 10 September 2011, The Irish Times reported thus:

“Since his abrupt withdrawal from the contest in early August, Norris has been on holiday, but there has been a persistent effort, largely internet-based, TO PERSUADE HIM BACK IN. These have been shored up by a series of Sunday Independent surveys suggesting A PUBLIC CLAMOUR FOR HIS RETURN… Norris supporters (but not from his former campaign team) began to make exploratory inquiries of some Independent TDs and Senators about whether they might now be prepared TO DECLARE THEIR SUPPORT FOR HIS NOMINATION AGAIN.”

The sheeple are everywhere, it seems.

And everywhere their fashionably on-message preferences astound.

On 4 August 2011, The International Crisis Group published a report which said:

“AFTER A DECADE OF MAJOR SECURITY, DEVELOPMENT AND HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE, THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY HAS FAILED TO ACHIEVE A POLITICALLY STABLE AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE AFGHANISTAN. DESPITE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN AID, STATE INSTITUTIONS REMAIN FRAGILE AND UNABLE TO PROVIDE GOOD GOVERNANCE, DELIVER BASIC SERVICES TO THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION OR GUARANTEE HUMAN SECURITY.

As the insurgency spreads to areas regarded as relatively safe till now, and policymakers in Washington and other Western capitals seek a way out of an unpopular war, THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY STILL LACKS A COHERENT POLICY TO STRENGTHEN THE STATE AHEAD OF THE WITHDRAWAL OF MOST FOREIGN FORCES by December 2014...

The Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police, despite receiving more than half of total international aid, ABOUT $29 BILLION between 2002 and 2010, have thus far proved unable to enforce the law, counter the insurgency or even secure the seven regions identified for full Afghan control by mid-year… THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY THAT ANY AMOUNT OF INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE TO THE AFGHAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCES WILL STABILISE THE COUNTRY IN THE NEXT THREE YEARS unless there are significant changes in international strategies, priorities and programs. Nor will the Afghan state be in a position by 2015 to provide basic services to its citizens, further undermining domestic stability… The amount of international aid disbursed since 2001,$57 BILLION… IS A FRACTION OF WHAT HAS BEEN SPENT ON THE WAR EFFORT. More importantly, IT HAS LARGELY FAILED TO FULFIL THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY’S PLEDGES TO REBUILD AFGHANISTAN. Poor planning and oversight have affected projects’ effectiveness and sustainability, with local authorities lacking the means to keep projects running, LAYERS OF SUBCONTRACTORS REDUCING THE AMOUNTS THAT REACH THE GROUND AND AID DELIVERY FURTHER UNDERMINED BY CORRUPTION IN KABUL AND BRIBES PAID TO INSURGENT GROUPS to ensure security for development projects...

As more and more districts come under Taliban control, DESPITE U.S. CLAIMS OF SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS, AND THE INSURGENCY SPREADS TO AREAS REGARDED UNTIL RECENTLY AS RELATIVELY SECURE, displacement and humanitarian needs are also rising. The U.S.-led counter-insurgency doctrine that aid should consolidate military gains has been AT BEST UNSUCCESSFUL, IF NOT COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE… As security deteriorates further, entire communities could be denied access to humanitarian assistance and basic services...

THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY WILL HAVE TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS OF AN OVERLY CENTRALISED, CORRUPT AND INEFFICIENT ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEM.”

On 3 August 2011, the LONDON24 website reported thus:

"More than 300 police officers stormed homes across Hackney in a string of dawn raids this morning hitting high-level gang ringleaders who spread fear and violence in the borough."

Didn't do much to prevent them rioting in Hackney a few days later, did it?

On 3 August 2011, Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, said this to the youth group, Nashi.

"THEY (THE USA) ARE LIVING BEYOND THEIR MEANS AND SHIFTING A PART OF THE WEIGHT OF THEIR PROBLEMS TO THE WORLD ECONOMY. THEY ARE LIVING LIKE PARASITES OFF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY and their monopoly of the dollar…

If over there there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone. Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities…’ There should be other reserve currencies'.“

On 2 August 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Dr De-Kun Li thus:

“The message here is that exposure to electromagnetic fields is not good, and we need to pay attention to its adverse effect on health. Electromagnetic field exposure is ubiquitous so any adverse health effect could cause a serious public health problem. The best way to reduce your magnetic field exposure is distance. Pregnant women should try to limit their exposure to known sources and keep distance from them when they are in use.”

“Pregnant women who use hairdryers, microwaves, vacuum cleaners or who live near pylons could be putting their babies at risk of asthma, claim scientists. They warn that exposing unborn children to potentially harmful magnetic energy produced by household appliances and power lines could treble their child’s chances of suffering from the condition. Experts believe that the finding could partly explain why asthma rates in children have increased so dramatically in the last few decades…

Around 1.1million children in Britain suffer from asthma and some studies suggest that the number affected has increased by 50 per cent in recent decades.”

On 1 August 2011, Paul Robinson said this in The Telegraph:

“Television is not to blame for children’s lack of education. Television is one of the most effective mediums through which to teach and inspire youngsters… Of course MEDIA OWNERS need to take responsibility for the content they offer children… CHILDREN ARE BEING EXPOSED TO HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT… IT IS THE MEDIA’S DUTY TO ENSURE THAT CONTENT IS SUITABLE AND SAFE. Pulling children away from screens is not the answer. WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND… EDUCATE AND INSPIRE. Age-appropriate, educational and entertaining programming should be the focus of both media owners so kids can grow and develop with the things they love.”

The kid staring at the box because mum didn't have time, wasn't there or couldn't be bothered would have a bit to do with the “lack of education,” I reckon.

However, "progressive" teaching methods; (all sitting around in a circle nattering as opposed to sitting up straight in their desks and facing the blackboard would be one glaring example) political correctness; ever-worsening standards of behaviour in the classroom, exacerbated by namby-pamby attitudes to this within the educational and political establishment; the introduction of comprehensive schooling and the abolition of the grammars all wreaked havoc upon the educational possibilities of the British schoolchild.

The elephant in the schoolroom for the last forty-odd years has been the imposition upon our children of so many who did not speak the language and often behaved outside the recognised cultural norms. The teacher would, of necessity, be forced to devote much precious time to those whose knowledge of the English language wasn't what it should be, depriving the native English speaker of a good deal of the education they had a right to expect in the process.

On 1 August 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive of the eating disorders charity, Beat, thus:

“The ideal figure promoted for women these days is that of a girl, not an adult women. GIRLS SEE THE PICTURES IN MAGAZINES OF EXTREMELY THIN WOMEN AND THINK THAT IS HOW THEY SHOULD BE. That can leave them fearful of puberty, and almost trying to stave it off. A number of factors combine to trigger eating disorders; biology and genetics play a large part in their development, but SO DO CULTURAL PRESSURES, AND BODY IMAGE SEEMS TO BE INFLUENCING YOUNGER CHILDREN MUCH MORE OVER THE PAST DECADE.”

Rosi Prescott, Chief Executive of the YMCA, added:

“AS A SOCIETY WE ARE FAR MORE OBSESSED WITH BODY IMAGE COMPARED WITH 20 YEARS AGO. Young people are trying to make themselves look as appealing as possible and THEY ARE LOOKING UP TO THESE CELEBRITIES AND MODELS as references, even though MANY ARE NOT REAL BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN AIRBRUSHED. They are becoming preoccupied with what they eat AND DEVELOPING AN UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD.”

"Children as young as five are being treated in hospital for severe anorexia in a shocking illustration of how early they can become obsessed with body image."

At any one time, up to 90,000 Britons are being treated for eating disorders, with women and girls between the ages of 14 and 25 most susceptible.

The fashion industry, the media and our politcians, who have never done anything to curb their excesses, are wholly responsible for these figures.

On 1 Aug 2011, Alex Newman of the New American Internet magazine informed us of a few of the personages who attended the June 2011 Bilderberg conference in Switzerland:

“An especially interesting cadre at the 2011 event included some of the masters of the Internet world: the co-founder of Facebook; the executive chairman of Google; the co-founder and executive chairman of LinkedIn; the founder and CEO of Amazon.com; the commander of the American military’s ‘cyber command‘; Microsoft’s chief research and strategy officer; and others.”

Doubtless they were there to supply answers regarding the proliferation of information on the internet.

How to deny said info to the proles, that is.

New American continued:

“During a panel discussion sponsored by the magazine Marie Claire, Ms. Zuckerberg addressed the issue of the proliferation of cyberbullying and opined that people would be less inclined to harass others online if the veil of anonymity were removed and all people were required to use their real names…

‘I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away. People behave a lot better when they have their real names down.... I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors’.

The Facebook founding family isn’t the only faction of Internet aristocracy calling for the obliteration of namelessness on the net. Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt made the same recommendation, describing anonymity as ‘dangerous’ and practically calling upon the governments of the world to ‘demand’ that citizens of their respective nations cease the practice of employing usernames…

Matthew Ingram of GigaOM, a San Francisco-based blog, recently wrote:

‘Many people believe that requiring real names will solve the problems of trolls and bad behavior, but they don’t… THAT POLICY CAN HAVE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES IN TERMS OF SUPPRESSING DIALOGUE ABOUT IMPORTANT TOPICS’.”

To a certain extent, the anonymous blogger can transmit information without fear of harrassment, threats or persecution by the establishment.

That’s the REAL point about Internet anonymity. The Zuckerbergs and Schmidts know this. If the Facebook and Google anonymity-squashers get their way we’ll be back in the informational darkness by this time next year.

The Zuckerbergs are Jewish as are the founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

I’m not sure about Eric Schmidt.

On 1 August 2011, the Home Affairs Select Committee published a report which said:

"Current migration of Turkish nationals to the EU has declined to below 50,000 a year but POPULATION TRENDS AND THE GAP IN LIVING STANDARDS COULD MAKE EASIER MIGRATION WITHIN THE EU AN ATTRACTIVE OPTION FOR TURKISH CITIZENS.

Given the UK's experience after the 2004 enlargement, when MANY THOUSANDS MORE MIGRANTS ARRIVED THAN EXPECTED, the committee is cautious about allowing Turkish citizens full freedom of movement.”

On 1 August 2011, the Ambrose Evans-Pritchard article, America is merely wounded, Europe risks death, was published in The Telegraph.

This is it:

“If disaster is an outside risk in America, IT IS AN ODDS-ON LIKELIHOOD IN EUROPE. It is already clear that the latest EU summit deal is too little to stop a spiralling crisis in confidence, let alone acknowledge that North and South have diverged too far to share a currency union. Spanish and Italian yields are back to pre-summit danger levels, and might fly out of control at any moment unless a lender-of-last resort steps in to guarantee the market.

The European Central Bank still refuses to do so, and the EFSF bail-out fund cannot legally do so until all national parliaments ratify the summit deal to widen its remit. Yet these chambers have shut down for the summer. EUROPE’S LEADERS HAVE GONE ON HOLIDAY. The €440bn EFSF is in any case too small. The bond vigilantes broadly agree that the EFSF needs €2 trillion in pre-emptive firepower to forestall a twin crisis in Italy and Spain, though quite how France might pay for this without being drawn into the maelstrom itself is an open question.

Germany’s ‘triangulating’ finance minister Wolfgang Schauble has once again over-promised in Brussels, only to retreat under pressure in Berlin. There will be no ‘carte blanche’ for EFSF bond purchases. So will Germany do whatever it takes to uphold monetary union in its current form, or will it not? We are no wiser.

As the details dribble out from the summit deal, we can now see that Greece will enjoy no debt relief despite having been pushed into default. Citigroup said the net effect will increase Greece’s debt by a further 4pc of GDP to more than 160pc next year. Since this is obviously untenable, GREECE WILL NEED A THIRD RESCUE.

THE EU HAS BROUGHT ABOUT THE FIRST SOVEREIGN DEFAULT IN WESTERN EUROPE SINCE THE SECOND WORLD WAR and set a fateful precedent without actually resolving the Greek problem. THIS IS THE WORST OF ALL WORLDS.

Moody’s cited the summit terms as a key reason why it put Spain on negative watch last week…

EU ineptitude - or rather, German, Dutch and Finnish unwillingness to face up to the implications of EMU - have raised the risk of a traumatic August crisis in Italy and Spain. EU LEADERS ARE BRINGING ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT THEY PLEDGED TO AVOID."

On 1 August 2011, Paul Robinson said this in The Telegraph:

“Television is not to blame for children’s lack of education. Television is one of the most effective mediums through which to teach and inspire youngsters… Of course MEDIA OWNERS need to take responsibility for the content they offer children… CHILDREN ARE BEING EXPOSED TO HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT… IT IS THE MEDIA’S DUTY TO ENSURE THAT CONTENT IS SUITABLE AND SAFE. Pulling children away from screens is not the answer. WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND… EDUCATE AND INSPIRE. Age-appropriate, educational and entertaining programming should be the focus of both media owners so kids can grow and develop with the things they love.”

The kid staring at the box because mum didn't have time, wasn't there or couldn't be bothered would have a bit to do with the “lack of education,” I reckon.

However, "progressive" teaching methods; (all sitting around in a circle nattering as opposed to sitting up straight in their desks and facing the blackboard would be one glaring example) political correctness; ever-worsening standards of behaviour in the classroom, exacerbated by namby-pamby attitudes to this within the educational and political establishment; the introduction of comprehensive schooling and the abolition of the grammars all wreaked havoc upon the educational possibilities of the British schoolchild.

The elephant in the schoolroom for the last fofty-odd years has been the imposition upon our children of so many who did not speak the language and often behaved outside the recognised cultural norms. The teacher would, of necessity, be forced to devote much precious time to those whose knowledge of the English language wasn't what it should be, depriving the native English speaker of a good deal of the education they had a right to expect in the process.

On 1 August 2011, Melanie Philips opined thus in The Daily Mail:

“Former Norwegian prime minister and current chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize committee Thorbjorn Jagland has said that, in response to the violent attacks, David Cameron and other European leaders should use a more ‘cautious’ approach when talking about multiculturalism. Cameron has said multiculturalism has failed, and has also talked about ‘Islamist extremism’ as a cause of terrorism.

Jagland, however, said leaders would be ‘playing with fire’ if they continued to use rhetoric that could be exploited by extremists such as Breivik… But to connect such abhorrent ravings with Cameron’s comments is simply grotesque… Even if he was motivated by hostility to multiculturalism and Islam, it is perverse to suggest that no one should write about these things because some deranged person raving about such ideas has run amok…

MULTICULTURALISM AND ISLAMIC EXTREMISM RAISE ENTIRELY LEGITIMATE AND VERY SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT DEFENDING A CULTURE FROM ATTACK BOTH FROM WITHIN AND FROM WITHOUT. Jagland seems to be cynically exploiting the murder of more than 70 innocents to MAKE A CONNECTION WHICH IS AS OBNOXIOUS AS IT IS OPPORTUNISTIC IN ORDER TO BULLY INTO SILENCE THOSE WHO EXPRESS SUCH LEGITIMATE DEMOCRATIC CONCERNS…

As soon as the atrocity happened, PEOPLE ON THE LEFT SAW A HEAVEN-SENT OPPORTUNITY TO SMEAR MAINSTREAM CONSERVATIVE THINKERS AND WRITERS BY MAKING A GROSSLY DISTORTED ASSOCIATION BETWEEN BREIVIK’S ATTACK AND THEIR IDEAS. THEY CLAIMED THAT ANYONE ON ‘THE RIGHT’ WHO HAD SPOKEN OUT AGAINST MULTICULTURALISM OR ISLAMIC EXTREMISM WAS COMPLICIT IN THE ATROCITY AND THEREFORE HAD A MORAL DUTY TO STOP WRITING ABOUT SUCH THINGS…

Those who have exploited the killing of innocents in Norway to provoke such an eruption of distortion, demonisation and irrationality should disgust and alarm all decent people everywhere.”

What the Jaglands in this country do not want people to know is this:

“The previous Labour government had kept the public in the dark about a covert policy of mass immigration.” That’s why the Left want us to keep quiet. That’s why they cynically exploit the murder of more than 70 innocents”. They wish to “bully into silence those who express such legitimate democratic concerns.”

Well, it won’t stop Melanie, it won’t stop me, and it won’t stop ten thousand other “thinkers and writers” for whom the truth is more important than the “grossly distorted” spin.

On 31 July 2011, Toby Young's article, 'The pro-immigration Left should stop using Anders Breivik to further its political agenda', appeared in The Telegraph.

This said:

“According to Thorbjørn Jagland, a senior member of the Norwegian Labour Party and chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, centre-Right politicians like David Cameron and Angela Merkel should stop criticising multiculturalism in case their words inspire another Anders Breivik. In an interview in today’s Observer, the former Norwegian Prime Minister says:

‘We have to be very careful how we are discussing these issues, what words are used. POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE GOT TO DEFEND THE FACT THAT SOCIETY HAS BECOME MORE DIVERSE… I think political leaders have to send a clear message to embrace it and benefit from it. We should be very cautious now, we should not play with fire’…

This is cynical political opportunism of the worst kind. HAS THORBJØRN JAGLAND EVER SPOKEN OUT AGAINST ISLAMIST HATE PREACHERS ON THE GROUNDS THAT THEIR WORDS MAY INSPIRE TERRORIST ACTS? OF COURSE NOT. NEVERTHELESS, HE DOESN’T HESITATE BEFORE EXPLOITING THE DEATHS OF 77 INNOCENT NORWEGIANS TO PROMOTE HIS OWN MULTICULTURALIST AGENDA…

Anders Breivik’s crimes are completely appalling, but WE SHOULDN’T ALLOW THE LEFT TO EXPLOIT THE PUBLIC OUTRAGE THEY’VE QUITE NATURALLY GIVEN RISE TO IN ORDER TO SUPPRESS FREE SPEECH. The fact that Breivik claims to have been ‘inspired’ by the opinions of Melanie Phillips and other journalists and authors who’ve questioned multiculturalism doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t in future be allowed to express those views. You might as well argue that since Mark Chapman was ‘inspired’ to shoot John Lennon by Catcher in the Rye that J D Salinger’s book should be withdrawn from public libraries.

David Cameron and Angela Merkel should be applauded for having the courage to confront the centre left consensus about multiculturalism. Whatever your feelings about the manner in which immigration has transformed the countries of Western Europe, you should welcome the opportunity to engage in a public debate on the subject. For Thorbjørn Jagland to invoke the crimes of Anders Breivik in order to avoid doing so is a disgrace and suggests that HE’S NOT CONFIDENT THIS IS AN ARGUMENT HE AND HIS FELLOW MULTICULTURALISTS CAN WIN.”

"David Cameron and Angela Merkel should be applauded for having the courage to confront the centre left consensus about multiculturalism."

Hey Toby, much though applaud the sentiments expressed in your article, how about applauding Enoch Powell, Oswald Mosley, the BNP, the National Front and all the other Nationalist groupings that were saying what Cameron and Merkel have said recently long before they scrambled onto an out-of-control bandwagon before it left them way behind.

Never mind. You've done your little bit saying what you've said here. We scrubbers fought the wars, the Captain Darlings got the gongs and the Camerons and Merkels sucked up the gravy. 'Twas ever thus. As for the mad, Norwegian mummy's boy and the Thorbjørn Jaglands. They'd be two sides of the same dodgy nine-bob note.

Both belong in Big Brother's wallet.

On 31 July 2011, The Daily Express quoted Daniel Carlsen, leader of a Danish Nationalist party, thus:

“Breivik was not an EXTREMIST, he was a madman. He destroyed Norwegian families, he bombed his own country and he made Norway insecure. Being a modern EXTREMIST has nothing to do with CHRISTIANITY, though we have CHRISTIAN members, and it has nothing to do with NAZISM. We want Denmark for Danes and we don’t just mean people born in Denmark: we mean Nordic Danes. Scandinavia has been badly affected by immigration. I am in contact with our Swedish cousins. In Sweden it’s even worse than here. Swedes are a minority in Malmo, where the most popular baby name is Mohammad.”

The Express continued:

“As the world began to come to terms with Anders Behring Breivik’s carnage, scores of Danes gathered at the Norwegian embassy in Copenhagen… Among them was Daniel Carlsen… the best hope for A WHITE FATHERLAND, devoid of immigration and what he calls the 'infestation of Islam'.

Carlsen is symbolic of a spring tide of RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM that is washing over Scandinavian politics… As a 16-year-old, Carlsen was already a vocal member of Denmark’s DNSB NEO-NAZI party, where he would parade with black banners adorned with SWASTIKAS and emblazoned with the message 'Denmark for Danes'…

While HE STILL DENIES THE HOLOCAUST, the ANTI-SEMITIC rhetoric that so helps to define his traditional NATIONAL SOCIALIST roots is gone, as is any allegiance to HITLER…

Denmark is already seen as a leading light among RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS in Europe. NAZISM is not outlawed and its third largest party, actually a coalition partner, is the FAR-RIGHT Danish People’s Party... Its most recent claim to fame is persuading its CONSERVATIVE allies to impose customs barriers on national borders with Germany, in clear contravention of EU law…

In Sweden, the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats are experiencing their first taste of mainstream power after winning 5.7 per cent of the votes in last autumn’s national elections and seats in Parliament…

In Finland, meanwhile, the True Finns Party, the first party for ultra-Right mainstream MPs, won 19 per cent of the popular vote in April…

Norway has the same story to tell. Despite Breivik’s rambling 1,500-page manifesto claiming the opposite, Norway’s Progress Party won 23 per cent of the national vote during elections in 2009, making it the country’s second largest party. Once a disorganised rabble, Norway’s RIGHT-WING has modernised and cleaned house.

Scandinavia doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and Western Europe is experiencing the same trends. ANGELA MERKEL, NICOLAS SARKOZY AND DAVID CAMERON HAVE ALL PUBLICLY DECLARED THAT THE 'MULTICULTURALIST EXPERIMENT HAS ENDED IN FAILURE'.

In the Netherlands, the Party for Freedom won 15.5 per cent of the vote in last year’s general elections. It is led by Geert Wilders, who controversially compared the Koran to HITLER’S MEIN KAMPF.

In Germany, the controversial party, the NDP, has survived attempts to ban it and is thriving under new female leadership. In France, concessions to the Right, such as outlawing the wearing of the burkha, have blown wind in the EXTREMISTS’ sails.”

A picture captioned, 'NEO-NAZI demonstrators give a FASCIST salute in Sweden' introduced the above article.

In Breivik's 'manifesto' he tells that, not only does he despise Nazi ideology, but that, if he had been around in 1933, he would have assassinated Hitler himself if he could.

Despite this, the totality of the UK's mainstream media has attempted to implant the idea that he is a neo-Nazi in the minds of the people. The above article links him with groups and personages they describe as "far right", "neo-Nazi" and, most disgustingly of all, "anti-Semitic".

In his manifesto, Breivik informs us, quite categorically, that he is pro-Israeli.

On 31 July 2011, Lucy Johnston said this in The Sunday Express:

"The care home entrepreneur who will run a large chunk of the collapsed Southern Cross empire was shamed by the Sunday Express 10 years ago in an exposé of a home where RESIDENTS WERE NEGLECTED AND MISTREATED… DR CHAI PATEL, A FORMER GOVERNMENT ADVISER ON ELDERLY CARE, VOWED THAT HE WOULD PROTECT PENSIONERS FROM THE KIND OF MALTREATMENT SUFFERED AT THE HOME WE EXPOSED, Lynde House, in Twickenham, Middlesex.

He said: 'Lynde House is the one thing I feel sad about in a 30-year career… The residents felt they could get recourse only by going public WHICH HAS TARNISHED MY REPUTATION'…

Lynde House was part of Westminster Care Homes, Dr Patel’s previous nursing home empire. He sold it after our story… Dr Patel’s consultancy business, Court Cavendish, is working with Southern Cross’s largest landlord, NHP, TO TAKE OVER 249 HOMES, WHICH HOUSE ABOUT 12,500 RESIDENTS. HE IS ALSO IN TALKS TO RUN A ­FURTHER 50 SOUTHERN CROSS HOMES RUN BY A DIFFERENT LANDLORD…

Ten years ago, acting on complaints from relatives and residents, we sent an undercover reporter in to 72-bed, £700-a- week Lynde House as a care assistant. COMPLAINTS HAD BEEN SENT TO DR PATEL AND THE COMPANY WHICH OWNED THE HOME OVER A PERIOD OF THREE YEARS BEFOREHAND.

We found sick and frail residents lying in their own waste for hours; emergency call bells out of reach and vital lifting equipment not working; residents staying in the same position so long that they developed bed sores.

After our investigation in 2001 Dr Patel sold his business, which owned 93 nursing homes, and resigned from his posts as government adviser on elderly care and consultant to Help the Aged.”

On 31 July 2011, Simon Walters said this in The Daily Mail:

“Tony Blair is to face scathing criticism from the official inquiry into the Iraq War for the role he played in leading Britain into one of its biggest foreign policy fiascos in modern history. The Mail on Sunday has been told that the former Prime Minister will be held to account on four main failings:

Bogus claims that were made about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Not telling the British public about his secret pledge with George Bush to go to war. Keeping the Cabinet in the dark by his ‘sofa government’ style. Failing to plan to avoid the post-war chaos in Iraq…

Blair, former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and ex-Downing Street spin doctor Alastair Campbell are all expected to be criticised.

A total of 179 British soldiers died in Iraq while estimates for the number of Iraqi dead vary from 100,000 to 650,000. Although Saddam was toppled within weeks, the invasion led to a bloody aftermath and there were claims that it contributed to increased terrorism in the UK and elsewhere.

In evidence, a defiant Mr Blair said he had no regrets about the war and maintained Britain would ultimately be able to look back on it with ‘immense pride’.

The Mail on Sunday understands that the inquiry rounds on Mr Blair for telling Parliament that intelligence suggesting Saddam had WMDs was ‘beyond doubt’. He also conceded there was not a ‘growing’ threat from Saddam in the autumn of 2002 – despite stating precisely that in the Commons before the war.

The inquiry report is also expected to criticise spin doctor Mr Campbell, whose denial that the dossier on Saddam’s weapons was designed to ‘make the case for war’ was challenged by former spy chief Major-General Michael Laurie, who was head of intelligence collection for the Defence Intelligence Agency. Major-General Laurie told the inquiry two months ago:

‘Alastair Campbell said the purpose of the dossier was not 'to make a case for war'. I had no doubt at that time this was exactly its purpose and these very words were used. We knew at the time that its purpose was precisely to make a case for war, rather than setting out the available intelligence. I and those involved in its production saw it exactly as that, and that was the direction we were given.’

And earlier this month an unnamed MI6 officer said Mr Campbell acted like ‘an unguided missile’ in work on the intelligence dossier. The spin doctor had ‘a propensity to have rushes of blood to the head and pass various stories and information to journalists without appropriate prior consultation’.

The inquiry is also understood to focus on the way that Mr Blair privately told Mr Bush more than a year before the conflict that he would back the war, while claiming in public he had not made up his mind…

Straw is in the line of fire after saying he only ‘very reluctantly’ endorsed the war, but ignored warnings from Foreign Office legal advisers that it was illegal. Sir Michael Wood, former senior legal adviser at the Foreign Office, said he considered resigning in protest at the war and was sidelined after he objected...

The failure to anticipate the post-war turmoil that followed Saddam’s defeat is believed to be another major part of Chilcot’s conclusions.

The inquiry heard how Major-General Tim Cross, a senior British officer, asked Mr Blair to delay the invasion of Iraq two days before the conflict, partly because planning for afterwards was ‘woefully thin’.
Major-General Cross said:

‘I remember saying, in so many words, I have no doubt at all that we will win this military campaign. I do not believe that we are ready for post-war Iraq.’ When he arrived in Baghdad after the war, things were worse than he expected. ‘Baghdad was held together by chicken wire and chewing gum,’ he said.”

On 31 July 2011, Kirsty Buchanan said this in The Sunday Express:

"Ed Miliband has met News International executives 15 times since the last general election. Other senior shadow cabinet ministers attended private parties hosted by Rupert Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth or attended parties alongside former chief executive Rebekah Brooks…

A third of all Labour leader Mr Miliband’s dealings with senior media figures involved News International executives. Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has had nine meetings with NI executives.

It emerged that only two days before revelations that murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler’s phone was hacked by an investigator working for the News of the World, Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander and Mrs Brooks were both at a party in the Cotswolds hosted by Elisabeth Murdoch.”

On 30 August 2007, The Daily Mail quoted a MigrationWatch report thus:

"The UK suffers from a brain drain less serious only than Mexico whereby a significant proportion of its tertiary level educated go overseas to work… There is something of a brain drain occurring in Britain whereby our most talented and skilled are leaving the UK in search of opportunities abroad…

The UK Border Agency Shortage Occupation list includes civil engineers, mechanical engineers and electrical engineers among others, perhaps suggesting that UK companies are not paying sufficiently well to keep the brightest and the best. Despite the NHS claiming to be reliant on migrant labour, 27 PER CENT OF OUR SKILLED EMIGRANTS HAD A HEALTH OR EDUCATION DEGREE.'

The report said around six out of ten emigrants from Britain have since 1997 been aged between 25 and retirement age, and the most numerous among these are people under 44 looking to promote their careers."

On 30 July 2011, The Daily Mail reported on the case of supply teacher, David Armstrong, who had admitted hoarding more than 4,500 indecent images of children. Sentencing him, Judge Mary Jane Mowat said:

“I DON’T CRITICISE YOU FOR BEING A TEACHER WHO’S ATTRACTED TO CHILDREN. MANY TEACHERS ARE but they keep their urges under control both when it comes to children and when it comes to images of children.”

The 63-year-old pervert was given a suspended sentenece only and he was allowed to walk free from the court.

“A teaching assistant noticed files on his laptop computer had names such as ‘rape wife’, ‘nude model’ and ‘gay alligator’. Armstrong was arrested and police found the appalling catalogue of indecent images and videos… More than 300 were in the two most serious categories AND INVOLVED VICTIMS AS YOUNG AS TWO…

The case is not the first time Judge Mowat has stirred controversy over sentences handed to sexual offenders. In 2008, she allowed a former headmaster to walk free from court after he said drugs he was taking for Parkinson’s disease made him a paedophile. Phillip Carmichael said the medication caused him to become ‘hypersexually active’ after HE WAS CAUGHT WITH 8,000 IMAGES AND VIDEOS ON HIS COMPUTER.

The judge said the case was ‘wholly exceptional’ and gave him an absolute discharge.”

You couldn’t make it up, could you?

On 30 July 2011 Anthony Horowitz said this in The Telegraph:

“OUR MORAL BANKRUPTCY IS TONY BLAIR'S LASTING LEGACY. All the pillars of the Establishment – the press, the police, the politicians – have toppled like oversized dominos. Greece may be just about bankrupt. MORALLY, I’D SAY THE UK ISN’T FAR BEHIND…

How have we reached this bottom-of-the-barrel mentality, where Sir Paul Stephenson, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, can boast that his ‘integrity is intact’ despite having accepted £12,000 of free hospitality at a health spa? Where Rebekah Brooks can say she is ‘shocked and appalled‘, but take weeks to resign? And how could anyone have actually lived with themselves, after hacking into the messages of a murdered schoolgirl?…

Who is going to sort out this mess? We have precious little hope when the chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, enjoying his moment in the limelight, is KEITH VAZ, who knows a thing or two about scandal, having OBSTRUCTED AN INQUIRY INTO HIS CONNECTIONS TO THE BILLIONAIRE HINDUJA BROTHERS, AND LATER CLAIMED £75,500 FOR A FLAT 12 MILES FROM HIS HOME.

IT ALL STARTED, OF COURSE, WITH TONY BLAIR. He wasn’t the first prime minister to kowtow to Murdoch, but in so many ways he set the trend for what is happening now. Bernie Ecclestone. The BAE bribery inquiry dropped for national security reasons. Dodgy flats in Bristol. Free holidays with millionaire pop stars. We don’t need to rehearse all these stories, because they’ve seeped into the national consciousness.

And next to Blair there was Alastair Campbell, a man as unsuited for public office in his own way as Andy Coulson was in his. Why shouldn’t Cameron follow Blair’s example and employ AN EX-TABLOID JOURNALIST WITH A FOUL MOUTH AND A REPUTATION FOR BULLYING? After all, it wasn’t going to lead to war.

With Blair… MORAL AMBIGUITY BECAME THE ORDER OF THE DAY – and if our political leaders could get away with it, so could everyone else. THE RICH AND THE POWERFUL WERE NOT ONLY IMMUNE FROM THE LAW. THEY WERE, VIA SUPER-INJUNCTIONS, PROTECTED BY IT. Public inquiries into perceived wrongdoing came to conclusions that seemed to bear little relation to the evidence.

Another knight, SIR IAN BLAIR, PRESIDED OVER THE KILLING OF AN UNARMED BRAZILIAN PLUMBER AND THE DISINFORMATION THAT FOLLOWED… Stephen Byers, before his post-government career as ‘a cab for hire‘, APPROVED THE SALE OF A NATIONAL NEWSPAPER TO A PURVEYOR OF PORNOGRAPHY. PETER MANDELSON AND DAVID BLUNKETT WERE BOTH FIRED, TWICE. And then there was Jacqui Smith…

THE NEW LABOUR YEARS CREATED AN ATMOSPHERE OF SHAMELESSNESS – AND NOW WE’RE LIVING WITH THE RESULTS. Footballers are almost expected to cheat and take drugs; stars all sleep three-in-a-bed with prostitutes. Even the royal family, in the portly shape of Prince Andrew, can be photographed cavorting with known sex offenders…

One step leads to another, and whoever took the step from pampered celebrity to murdered schoolgirl surely didn’t even distinguish between the two…

WHATEVER IS ROTTEN IN BRITAIN WAS ROTTEN A LONG TIME AGO. AFTER BLAIR, WE WERE NO LONGER ABLE TO TRUST THOSE WHO RUN THE COUNTRY. GOD HELP US IF WE CAN NO LONGER TRUST THOSE WHO HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT.”

Excellently well said, Mr Horowitz.

Much is, indeed, "rotten" in the State. "Who is going to sort out this mess?" Not the media, that's for sure. Not even those who write the occasional excellent article. You see, the media is bought and paid for. Even those who write excellent articles are, at some level, owned. There are truths that I'm sure you would not tell, Mr Horowitz, despite the fine moral sense implied by your article.

There are truths which you know to be true which, if the general public were allowed to know them, would incense you. For example, you will know that Rupert Murdoch has, for three decades, been the media's most powerful Zionist. He is utterly committed to Israel. Within his mighty media empire, only one local paper was allowed to speak out against the war in Iraq. Would you be happy if such information became generally known? Perhaps. But would you applaud the journalist who blew the whistle on the Neocons who were pushing for a second war with Iraq ever since the first once ended in 1991? Most of them were Jewish, you see. Which is something Rupert Murdoch and the politicians he owns are never going to tell the public.

Telling tales on those who are supposed to be off-limits is very important in respect of the "who-is-going-to-sort-out-this-mess" conundrum. So often, you see, it is just such untouchable folk who create "the horror" and "the tragedy" in the first place. So, Mr Horowitz, would you speak out in every instance if it helped dispel the "atmosphere of shamelessness"?

Some do, you know. Some will condemn their fellow Jews when they behave in an asocietal way. People like the historian, Norman Finkelstein, who dares to rubbish the accepted "Holocaust" statistics; Gilead Altmon, Nathanael Kapner and Henry Makow, all of whom speak out forcibly against all manner of Jewish depredation. And then there's Ari Shavit, the reporter, who, three weeks after the second war in Iraq began, said this in the Israeli daily, Haaretz:

"The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, MOST OF THEM JEWISH, WHO ARE PUSHING PRESIDENT BUSH TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY."

http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/white-man-s-burden-1.14110 Now would you, a

Jewish gentleman, advocate the telling of such a tale? In order to help eradicate the "bottom-of-the-barrel mentality" that you, yourself, rail against here? You see, those who routinely pay attention will have known long ago that the Neocons were the prime movers behind the war in Iraq. But very few will have delved deeply enough to discover that "most of them" were Jewish.

One last whistle I invite you to blow, Mr Horowitz. I have already mentioned that Rupert Murdoch is the world's leading media Zionist. Two separate inquiries have been set up to inquire into his media empire. On 13 July 2011, it was announced that Lord Leveson would lead the public inquiry into the phone hacking scandal, despite his having attended two parties in the previous twelve months at the home of Matthew Freud, the husband of Rupert Murdoch's daughter. Both Leveson and Freud are Jewish.

On 18 July 2011, The Jewish Chronicle informed us thus:

"Lord Grabiner has been appointed to chair News International's Management and Standards Committee. The Jewish QC, 66, will oversee the investigations into behaviour at News International companies.... Lord Grabiner and the committee will report to the directors of the News Corp board. Director Joel Klein said he was pleased 'such an eminent person' had agreed to lead the committee."

Both Grabiner and the News Corp director so pleased by his appointment are also Jewish.

Two Jews in charge of the official enquiries into the criminal behaviours of the operatives of the world's leading media Zionist. And those his power and influence have corrupted.

Jews comprise 1-in-200 of the British population. Looked at from a purely mathematical viewpoint, the chances of two Jewish chaps ending up heading both of these enquiries is 4,000-to-1. Thus, the Jew has 4,000 times more influence than he ought to have regarding the processing of these reports and the conclusions they ultimately draw. That's what my mathematics tell me.

What do you think, Mr Horowitz? Is this just a coincidence? Is it a fluke? Does it not matter? Or would you consider that such a Zionism-friendly 4,000-to-1 "fluke" might equate in any way to the "atmosphere of shamelessness" of which you spoke?

On 30 July 2011, Oliver Letwin, David Cameron’s Policy Minister, said this at the London HQ of KPMG, which won the first contract for NHS commissioning. (Privatisation by the back door)

“You can't have room for innovation and the pressure for excellence without having SOME REAL DISCIPLINE AND SOME FEAR ON THE PART OF THE PROVIDERS that things may go wrong if they don't live up to the aims that society as a whole is demanding of them. If you have diversity of provision and personal choice and power, some providers will be better and some worse. Inevitably, some will not… because they can't get results and hence CAN'T GET PAID. SOME WILL NOT SURVIVE. It is an inevitable and INTENDED consequence of what we are talking about.”

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union responded thus:

“Public sector workers are already working in fear. Fear of cuts to their job, pension, living standards and of privatisation. Far from improving productivity, the cuts are creating chaos in vital public services.”

Letwin is Jewish.

David Cameron, who is mostly Scottish, is about 10 percent Jewish.

On 29 July 2011, Graeme Archer said this in The Telegraph:

“Is there a more Janus-like phrase in existence than 'human rights'? A meaning that points towards hope, and dignity, but DEPLOYED AS A POLITICAL ACT, IT BRINGS FURY AND DESPAIR. This week’s use of Labour’s most poisonous legislative bequest involves a woman, Mrs Chapti, whose Indian husband can’t speak a word of English. MRS CHAPTI IS TAKING THE HOME SECRETARY TO COURT, CLAIMING HER RIGHT TO A FAMILY LIFE IS BEING ABUSED, BECAUSE THE HOME SECRETARY WON’T GIVE HER HUSBAND BRITISH CITIZENSHIP…

THE CASE IS AN OUTRAGE. Whatever measures the Government puts in place to control our borders, or to remove foreigners who commit criminal acts, or those who would whip up hatred, you can be sure YOU WILL FIND A VOCAL LIBERAL GROUP DEPLOYING 'HUMAN RIGHTS' TO STYMIE THE DEMOCRATIC WILL OF THE PEOPLE…

Who suffers most from the politico-legal imposition of 'human rights'?

A few years ago, I was summoned for jury duty. After days of sitting around, I was selected at random, called to my place, and the trial began…

As the evidence unfolded, it became obvious that the accused was innocent. His vicious, repellent wife, who ran a sweatshop in east London, had made up a vile accusation that he had brandished a knife at herself and their daughter: a farrago of nonsense that fell apart under cross-examination. The accused was acquitted.

The whole thing could have been over in two days rather than 10 – but for one thing. NO PARTY IN THE AFFAIR HAD THE SLIGHTEST GRASP OF ENGLISH. Everything had to be conducted under the aegis of a translator... After stifling an initial spasm of fury at the expense to which a British court had to go in order to dispense justice to non-English-speaking immigrants, I did wonder how 'fair' such a trial could be. Sometimes the witness would respond to a question in a torrent of high emotion; the translation could come out as 'yes' or 'no'.

But as the days passed, and I listened to the story of the accused’s life, my feelings changed. His life was hell, frankly. His family had arranged his marriage to this woman while he lived on the subcontinent. He was dispatched to England, where he worked as a dishwasher in an East End curry house… Most of the time, he was barred from the 'family' home: having provided the wife with a child, AND THEREFORE A HOUSE, he was surplus to her requirements.

Confused about his exile, following hard as it did on his real exile, from his real home, he spent most of his nights dossing down on fellow pot-washers’ sofas. When this evil woman decided that she wanted rid of him for good, he found himself at the centre of a criminal trial… People like that man will never learn English and they will never integrate. He had neither the power nor the energy to do so…

When we demand the repeal of the Human Rights Act, AND OUR LIBERAL COUNTRYMEN TELL US THAT WE MUST NOT, because great evil will happen if we do: remember that man. He stood weeping and alone in the witness box, BECAUSE 'HUMAN RIGHTS' PREVENTED US FROM STEMMING IMMIGRATION. He was there because 'human rights' encouraged communities without English to grow. The final, bitter irony: the worst sins visited by the consequences of that act do not fall on us, the jury, the majority. THEY FALL ON 'THEM', THE PEOPLE THE ACT WAS MEANT TO PROTECT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

SET AGAINST THE DELIBERATE 'HUMAN RIGHTS' POLICIES THAT LED TO HIS WRETCHED EXISTENCE, THE ACCUSED MAN COUNTED FOR NOTHING AT ALL.”
