DOUGLAS MURRAY’S REGRET

“Day by day the continent of Europe is not only changing but is losing any possibility of a soft landing in response to such change. An entire political class have failed to appreciate that many of us who live in Europe love the Europe that was ours…….if they do change it many of us will regret this quietly. Others will regret it less quietly.”

I have just finished reading Douglas Murray’s , “Strange Death of Europe” , and the above paragraph , which comes at the very end of the book , sums up what for me is the problem with this book. Murray does not care , or at least does not care enough. He will , in his own words , “regret it quietly” and presumably just forget the victims and the damage done , not just to the victims of the last few years but all those victims to come. Murray’s language throughout the book is civil and temperate with one glaring exception when he uses the word ‘ rancid ‘ in reference to the ‘far right’ or at least certain sections of the ‘far right’.  ” It is also true that these parties ( Pegida/EDL) include people with rancid political views. But so too , it must be noted , do mainstream parties of the political left and right “. While this statement may seem quite reasonable it is significant that he makes it when speaking of Pegida and the EDL and not on any of the numerous occasions he quotes Angela Merkel and a host of other people and groups. He does not refer to any of the mainstream characters that litter his book as ‘criminal’ in spite of the ample evident that he supplies in his book that that is exactly what they are.

This is an interesting and very readable book and it will , I’m sure , ‘red pill’ some people but I fear that in the long run it may do more harm than good – like all those slick YouTube videos that entertain us far more that educate us and always avoid stating the very things that really do need to be put into words…..Things , sometimes NEED to be said for them to become real in the minds of people. Sometimes it really is necessary to call a spade a spade and tell people in plain english things which they may not wish to hear or contemplate. I suppose you could say that this is a very entertaining book – but that is the last thing we need just now. We are being entertained to death via YouTube and books like this , perhaps literally, while in the real world everything is going to hell at an ever faster pace. We need men and women of action in these times and not books  and perhaps if we find such men and women of action we may live to write great books in the future…..We need the ugly brutal truth told in all its ugliness. We need it rammed down our throats. The time for civility and reason is over.

However , at this stage in the history of the For Britain Movement there is no such thing as bad publicity and Anne Marie came across as a very formidable and strong woman.  If you don’t want to watch the full programme from the begining the ‘Far Right’ section of the programme starts at 29:00 minutes. Anne Marie’s response to the BBC in regard to her treatment on the programme can be found on the For Britain Blogs page on the For Britain website.

ANNE MARIE WATERS BANNED AGAIN FROM WARWICK UNIVERSITY

Anne Marie Waters, has been banned for the second time from speaking at Warwick University. She was originally supposed to give a talk to the Warwick University PPE Society in October of 2018 but this was cancelled due to pressure from Warwick Labour, Pride, Anti-Sexism Society, Anti-Racism Society, Student-Staff Solidarity , Socialist Worker and others. Technically , her talk was rescheduled for January 9th 2019 but subsequently when in fact she was invited back it was cancelled yet again. In response to this Anne Marie posted her lecture on YouTube where , at the time of writing ( one day after it was posted ) it has already attracted over 10,000 views.  Ironically , her lecture / speech was on the subject of free speech. The full talk can be seen here on the For Britain Youtube Channel.

 

 

 

 

THE DIVERSIFICATION OF HARTLEPOOL

In 2018, the main issues that dominated local politics in Hartlepool were the crime rate, council tax, and the leadership of the local Labour party. These issues are not likely to go away in 2019, but Hartlepool will face a new challenge in the New Year, and that is immigration.
For many years immigration has had a major impact on large towns and cities across the UK. According to The Migration Observatory: ‘Between 2004 – 2017 the foreign born population in the UK more than doubled from 5.3 million to around 9.4 million’. A consequence of this is that places like London, Birmingham, Bradford and Slough have seen segregation and ‘white flight’, while local British people often feel like strangers in a Britain that is no longer theirs.
Hartlepool has largely escaped mass immigration in recent years, but that is now changing. Some people and organisations downplay or welcome the changes that migration will bring to Hartlepool, but for others, this is why they voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum. That makes little difference however, as police, education, and media continue to celebrate ‘diversity’ and select headlines that present the false notion that immigration is not a growing concern.

Multiculturalism and the Transformation of Britain in 2018

January 1. Four British jihadis, sentenced to life in prison for planning a major terror attack in Birmingham, received nearly £800,000 (€900,000; $1 million) in taxpayer-funded legal aid to cover their failed defense, according to information obtained through a freedom of information request. Khobaib Hussain, 25, Naweed Ali, 30, Mohibur Rahman, 33, and Tahir Aziz, 38, received £790,485 to pay for lawyers. Some £635,822 went to the trial lawyers; each of the defendants was represented by a Queen’s Counsel and junior barrister. The billing process is not yet complete; the final figure likely to be higher.

January 3. Each lone child migrant in Britain costs taxpayers nearly £70,000 a year — £67,634 — according to the Association of Directors of Children’s Services. Expenses include £50,716 for residential placement and linked care costs, £4,805 for education, £3,915 for healthcare and £3,826 for social workers. For each lone child migrant, councils also typically pay £440 for interpreters and child advocates, £480 for English language lessons, £70 for dentists and £20 for doctor registration. Home Office statistics show that there are currently at least 4,500 unaccompanied youngsters seeking asylum in Britain — and costing taxpayers more than £300 million a year. Town halls are legally responsible for all costs associated with each child under their care until they are 25.

January 4. Police investigating the sale of illegal cigarettes, drug dealing and human trafficking in Nottingham were warned to stay away from a “Kurdish street,” said to be under the control of Middle Eastern gangsters. Police Constable Lee Wilson told Nottingham Magistrates’ Court:
“Illicit tobacco was being used to fund criminality, primarily drug supply and human trafficking. Senior members of Kurdish organized crime have been using it to fund criminality in the Radford Road area. A Kurdish businessman offered us £5,000 (€5,500; $6,400) a month to cease the tobacco investigation. With others involved in the operation, we had a search dog and were told, ‘police are not welcome on the street.’ It was described as a ‘Kurdish street.’

January 5. Security Minister Ben Wallace admitted that the British government had lost track of the whereabouts of hundreds of Britons fighting for jihadi groups in the Middle East. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today program that around half of the estimated 850 people from the UK who went to Syria and Iraq have returned home, but that the government “does not know where” to find those still in the region.

JAYDA FRANSEN ESCORTED OFF FLIGHT

Jayda Fransen , the Britain First activist has been arrested yet again. I do not know the full details or sequence of events leading up to or following on from this arrest but it is now quite obvious that there are no shortages of police resources or political will when it comes to monitoring  people like Fransen or Tommy Robinson.  I am not a follower of Fransen nor am I a supporter of Britain First and I think their general strategy is ineffective and even counter productive , but the ‘powers that be ‘ obviously feel differently than I do which has given me cause to reconsider my position somewhat in the light of all this……..

Anne Marie Waters has not recieved this kind of attention from the police as yet , but it is probably only a matter of time……
