If you a member or supporter of Stand Up To Racism this is no barrier to becoming a member of UKIP. The fact that members of this group regularly abuse , intimidate and bully black people , brown people , white people , immigrants and gays etc is not an issue. If you are a member of Hope Not Hate and have bullied , abused , intimidated , slandered and marginalized black people , immigrants , gays , moderate muslims and ex muslims it is also not a problem. If you are a member or supporter of Antifa and in that capacity have bullied and slandered decent people of all colours and ethnicities calling them scum and other such names then put your mind to rest – We in UKIP don’t have a problem with people joining from Antifa either . If you support the aims , objectives , values and practices of any of the above groups then put your mind at rest – We really honestly don’t care.
If you are a member of the media and have deliberately lied to the people of Britain and perhaps put their lives and liberties at risk , if you have criminally slandered those who defend and speak for the poor and marginalized and forgotten of Britain , well that is your private business. If you are a member of a mainstream political party which has resolutely refused to represent the poor and marginalized in society – if you have spread hatred and bigotry against the poor , the weak , the marginalized and have characterised them as racists and fascists and bigots ….well , don’t give it a thought. None of these things will bar you from membership of our party.
On the other hand however we don’t just let anyone in. If you are , or ever have been , a member of the English Defence League then you are not welcome. If you live in a poor deprived community where thousands and tens of thousands of children and young girls have been raped , trafficked and abused because they are white and vulnerable and you in turn have responded to this by joining or supporting a street movement to stop it then we don’t want you. There is no place in UKIP for people like you.
“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.
