JEREMY CORBYN THE INCLUSIVE SOCIETY

Jeremy Corbyn is the darling of the ‘left’ and in particular of the youth. The new educated lower middle class youth who have probably never met / spoken to a working class person not to mention a poor marginalized person in their entire lives just love him. These young people who stand shoulder to shoulder with corporate Europe , shoulder to shoulder with the new landlord class , shoulder to shoulder with the those who wish to abolish free speech  , shoulder to shoulder with those who wish to impose Sharia law and culture on poor muslim women and girls , shoulder to shoulder with the obviously fascistic ‘anti fascist’ thugs who are ready and willing to shut anyone up who questions the new European order. Shoulder to shoulder with those who are driving the Jews out of Sweden and France. These young people who have a hatred and contempt for the poor and marginalized that is difficult to fathom are rushing to Corbyn’s side…. These conservative , right-wing reactionary young people , who like to think of themselves as progressive  left , who’s only concern is to protect their own privileged position just love Corbyn.

COMMUNITY AND COHESION IN BIRMINGHAM MAY 2018

“The city is also very diverse, with 42% of the population being from an ethnic minority background, reflecting the city’s rich and varied cultural heritage. Birmingham is a “super-diverse” city. Academic research suggests that there are people from nearly 200 countries who have made Birmingham their home . The 2011 Census revealed that 42.1% classified themselves within an ethnic group other than white British, compared to 30% in 2001, a rise of 12%. Birmingham is soon to become a majority minority city. The demographic makeup of Birmingham’s young people has also changed significantly over recent years and is becoming increasingly diverse. For example, according to the 2011 census over 60% of the under 18 population is now from a non-white British background, compared to around 44% in 2001. Ethnic diversity can bring many benefits such as transnational trading links and high levels of cultural resource. Birmingham has benefited from its diverse migrant communities who have settled in the city and successfully contributed to its economic vitality, becoming leaders in education, medicine, sports, arts and business and providing employment opportunities to local people. Our demographic landscape is increasingly becoming ethnically and socially ‘super diverse’, which means a greater understanding of the changes in cultural norms, identities and social shifts in how we live work and learn is needed. Community cohesion is an approach that enables us to respond to the wide ranging and kaleidoscope of identities, rather than simply focussing on a white majority and small number of ethnic minority identities.”

The above is a short extract from the Draft Community Cohesion  Strategy of May 2018 . Don’t waste time reading it as you have heard it all before. In a statement by Birmingham City Council on community cohesion you will find the following –

  • no promotion or unwitting support is given to individuals or groups that promote and propagate messages of hate and intolerance
  • ensure appropriate linkage to the Prevent programme where appropriate
  • ensure all schools and educational settings promote our shared British values
  • challenge illegal and harmful cultural attitudes and practices towards women such as Female Genital Mutilation, Forced Marriage and Honour-Based Violence
  • actively promote opportunities for cross-community interactions in order to strengthen relationships and common bonds between communities of different backgrounds and isolate extreme voices
  • encourage communities to report incidents of hate crime including anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or homophobic behaviour.

All you need to know here is that Birmingham has one of the highest rates of FGM in the UK so that will tell you what they mean by ‘challenging’ the issue.
