No Longer A Place Where Justice is Administered

Callous Killer Soon To Be Loosed

Learco Chindamo: Has shown no remorse for his crime

Thug who stabbed to death headteacher Philip Lawrence ‘to be released from prison within weeks’

Learco Chindamo, now 29, has served 14 years of a life sentence for stabbing the 48-year-old father of four outside St George’s Roman Catholic School in Maida Vale in 1995.

I think that just about everyone of a certain age remembers this case. Nowadays it would just be another stabbing, and probably wouldn’t raise so much as an eyebrow. Back then however, it was a huge story.

This was probably aided by the fact that Dunblane followed just three months later, and then the nursery machete attack. I am sure that things like this, that caused such outrage, were part of the reason that Labour were elected with such a landslide victory.

When Life Only Means Life For the Victim

Philip Lawrence: Died protecting a pupil

Philip Lawrence: Died protecting a pupil

Learco Chindamo has only served 14 years for the callous murder of Philip Lawrence, a fact that must be quite galling for Lawrence’s widow. It’s about the same amount of time as a criminal would get for a violent rape, or an armed robbery, yet Learco Chindamo received it for murder.

Learco Chindamo took a knife to tackle a pupil at the school, Lawrence did the honourable thing when he saw one of his pupils being attacked by a gang, he went to his aid. He really needn’t have bothered, the ‘victim’ is now also serving at Her Majesty’s Pleasure, for gun offences. Perhaps if he’d picked up that habit a little earlier, Learco Chindamo would be dead, Lawrence alive and the ‘victim’ precisely where he is now.

Not only did Learco Chindamo take the knife, he pulled it out with the full intention of stabbing someone, and when Philip Lawrence got in his way, he stabbed him straight in the heart. I find it very hard to believe that this thug has spent 14 years in prison and has come out a well rounded and fully rehabilitated individual.

Johnny Foreigner

Like 1 in 5 murders currently wasting millions of the taxpayers hard earned money, Learco Chindamo is a foreign national. The Home Office had tried to ensure that he was deported upon his release, but the scum fought it, and amazingly won.

Where was his country of origin, and what was so bad about it that he could not be deported? Italy. Yes, Italy, not Syria, Jordan or Iran, not somewhere where they may torture him, or persecute him, Italy, where many of us go on holiday.

The courts, if they can still really be called that (they are surely no longer the place where justice is administered), decided that his right to a ‘family life’ trumped the rights of the 60+ million Britons who pay for the court. This maniac and inevitable double murderer is to be let loose on society so that he can have a ‘family life’, apparently this isn’t possible in Italy.

They also decided that his rights also trumped those of Lawrence’s widow, who now has to live in fear of ever meeting him in the street, and live with the knowledge that Learco Chindamo will get to live out a full life, a right which he denied her husband.

A Killer by Another Name, Is Still A Killer

Despite the Home Office stating that he posed a genuine and present risk to the public, it is now claimed that he is:

‘reformed character’ with a ‘low likelihood of re-offending’.

Right, so someone who has no qualifications, left school very early and had spent the best part of his youth behind bars, is going to leave prison and become a valuable member of society and pose no risk to the public?

The man has zero chance of getting a real job, at least one that he will be satisfied with and so is highly likely to turn to crime, or are we to believe that he is in the 30% of ex cons that do not re-offend?

No doubt he will also be given a new identity, something that was unheard of just a few decades before, but is now becoming a regular occurrence for released high profile killers, and thus be able to get on with his life surrounded by people blissfully unaware of who he really is, or what he is capable of, until it is too late.

It is hard to believe that just a generation ago, people like Learco Chindamo were hung for their crimes, never again to trouble society, and never again to re-offend. Now the rights of the killers outweigh those of the victims and their families, indeed, I am sure it is just a matter of time before victims of crime are prosecuted for getting in the way of the troubled, poor and evil members of society.

Dodgy Dizaei Gets His Comeuppance!

I’ve been neglecting my blog of late, but I was so itching to come back and write something when this story broke!


Britain’s most crooked cop at last gets what he deserves.

Ali Dizaei found GUILTY of perverting the course of justice | Mail Online

A criminal in uniform: Teflon Commander Ali Dizaei used race card to dodge jail for years. Now he’s got four-year term for framing an innocent man

At last! Sadly I didn’t have time then, or now. So I thought that I would just revisit some of my past posts on Ali Dizaei, the Dark Lord of the police force.

I mentioned nearly a year ago now that Ali Dizaei had been charged, but in all honesty, I didn’t think he’d be sent down.

The man had played the race card so many times now, the Met must surely have had a full deck of them. Added to that his non white friends were more than willing to raise a hue and cry for him.

Alfred John, chairman of the Metropolitan Black Police Association, said the decision to charge Dizaei was ‘outrageous’ and the result of ‘personal vendettas’.

More a case of police chasing criminals though really Alfred, right? The funny thing about the National Non-White Black Police Association is that they are all police officers, yet not only did they fail to detect a career criminal in their midst, they defended him to the hilt!


One can only hope that this signals the end of the triumvirate, with Tarique Ghaffur (also a womaniser) now also out of the police force it just leaves Keith ‘Back Hand’ Vaz as the only one of Shahrokh Mireskandari’s associates with any real power. And as I said when the news broke:

Vaz, whose shredder has probably been smoking since news of the charges against Dizaei broke.

Vaz’s wife has also probably found her bank accounts and property portfolio greatly expanded overnight.

Has no doubt spent the past year covering his tracks and keeping his nose clean. Hopefully Vaz will do the smart thing and stand down at the next election, knowing Vaz however he is likely to hang on for his peerage (especially if he loses his seat).

National Non-White Black Police Association

I also hope that this brings to an end the sorry excuse for a police federation, the NBPA, which has just become a militant wing for black police officers and serial litigation specialist.

All of the worthy people in the association left when Dizaei became President, apparently they knew what the others either did not, or did not care about.

In modern Britain, such as organisation has no place, and no excuse to exist, equality laws and the Equality Commission cover everything this organisation is meant to stand for and more.

Dizaei to have easy ride in prison

The irony of course for Dizaei is that after all the Met investigations, the dogged pursing of him that he labelled racist, it was a person of the same ethnic origin as himself that brought him down!

The only downside of Dizaei’s incarceration is that he is likely to get an easy ride, after all the man is an expert at milking the system and being a Muslim to boot means that he’ll be running rings around the Prison Officers.

I’m sure that he will be asking for his own cell, on the grounds that he is a devout Muslim, albeit a drinking, womanising, prostitute using,  drug taking and adulterous devout Muslim.

Murdered by Sydney Silverman

Robert Cusworth - Killer

Robert Cusworth - Sick and Callous killer

Chef stabbed to death teaching assistant ‘because he was in a bad mood’ | Mail Online


A chef today admitted murdering an innocent teaching assistant because he was ‘in a bad mood.’

A poor innocent woman, who’d just nipped out to walk her dog, something that millions of Britons do each day, brutally murdered for no reason whatsoever.

One can only imagine the sheer horror that the unfortunate Mrs Sally Garwood must have experienced when a complete stranger grabbed her and decided to end her life.

Robert Cusworth has offered no real explanation for doing what he did, other than that he was in a bad mood. One can only hope that upon reaching prison, he runs into lots of nasty people in similar bad moods.

Justice of sorts

Cusworth, the cowardly scum that he is, at least did one thing right, he admitted what he had done. Saving the witnesses, one of whom was just nine years old, the trauma of having to give evidence in court. Although he is likely to get a ‘life’ sentence, it is unlikely to give Mr Garwood, nor the family of his wife, the justice that they deserve. No matter how many years he gets, he’ll only serve half of them, and as I have mentioned previously, not necessarily in what most of us would term ‘a prison’.

Sally Garwood had planned on starting a family with her husband Simon, but a simple walk with the dog through her local park ended any such hopes for Sally. She’ll never now have children or do anything else again. She’d probably left her home that morning, like any one of us, planning her day, her future perhaps. Instead she spent her final moments in agonising terror because the sick and callous Robert Cusworth had felt a little down that day.

Cusworth, who’s 25 years old, will most likely be out of prison and getting on with his life before he reaches 40. Indeed he’ll most likely be out before he reaches 34, the same age that Sally Garwood reached before she was brutally slain by him.

Instead of picking his child up from primary school, Mr Garwood will most likely still be trying to come to terms with the loss of his wife by the time that Cusworth is released, most likely early, further adding to his continuing pain. For those that lose someone in such tragic and senseless circumstances, the pain doesn’t end until they too die.

I’ve said it before, and I will continue saying it. We have the abolitionists to thank for people like Robert Cusworth.

Capital punishment cuts re-offending rates

The very fact that a man would consider going out and harming someone, especially with a knife, is because we have no effective means of punishment in Britain. There are no decisions that can have drastic or life limiting consquences for people like Robert Cusworth. What matter was it to him if he hurt or killed someone? He’d be OK. At worst he’d served a decade or so in prison, most likely with Satellite television in his room, access to the latest games consoles and games, day releases for study or even shopping trips. Not to mention on site medical and dental care.

Yes, that’s the worst that he could face. At best he’d be declared mentally ill, and then be let out to do it again in just a few years.

For those that state that hanging is no deterrent – rubbish! The man clearly thinks often of his own well being, deciding against tackling a lone male jogger as he wasn’t an easy enough target. The nine year old school boy most likely has Sally Garwood to thank for being in front of him, otherwise he’d have most likely being the target of Cusworth’s ire.

Had Cusworth really been that down hearted and depressed, he’d have killed himself, but no, because he valued his own life so highly, and because society values the lives of innocent, law abiding citizens so cheaply, he had far less to lose by killing someone else.

The murder rate in Britain has tripled since 1965 when Sydney Silverman MP, a pacifist and conscientious objector finally got his wish and the death penalty was effectively abolished. Thank god there were not more like him during World War II.

Why Britain needs to bring back hanging

Prior to this the murder rate has been decreasing virtually year on year for nearly a century. The murder rate stood at 6.2 murders per million people in Britain in 1960 and began to rise when it became clear that the death penalty was to be abolished, since then it has barely looked back, topping 20.3 murders per million by 2002.

Robert Cusworth and people like him need to be hung, anyone callous enough to kill a total stranger for no other reason than they were in a bad mood deserves to lose the only thing that people like this truly value, their own life. Once, taking someone’s liberty would have been considered a serious punishment, but in modern Britain it has become laughable. The only real punishment is the same one that these kind of people dish out willy nilly, one that is irreversible and final. Death.

Judging by the trend in murder rates for the 100 years prior to the abolition, Sydney Silverman and his like minded liberal colleagues have been responsible for the needless deaths of more than 3000 innocent people, all to save the lives of a few hundred murderers.

Prison Service – There’s No Place Like Home


Another thug for whom serving time is not to dissimilar from being at home

Outrage as violent thug who attacked policeman with crowbar is allowed out on day release after just two years | Mail Online

An armed robber who speared a policeman with a 2ft-long crowbar has been let out of prison on day release after serving just two years in jail, it been revealed.

Well it seems that you don’t have to be a mentalist to benefit from Britain’s lax Justice System. Fortunately that particular criminal was quickly apprehended after absconding and will no doubt have her day release privileges sternly re-assessed, before being re-instated in about a fortnight.

As for this ruffian, he was initially sentenced to eight years in prison, and as the Judge said when he tried to get his driving license back!

The judge told the court: ‘I don’t know what is going on with the Prison Service. A man gets eight years in 2007, and here he is on day release in 2009.

Welcome to the Criminal Justice system in 21st century Britain Judge, where have you been?


Prison is a joke, the prison’s website states:

The prison operates a ‘resettlement regime’ aimed at preparing prisoners for release by addressing ‘accommodation, employment, vocational training and offending behaviour needs’,

In other words the prisoners are let out and about almost as soon as the prison gate closes behind them. This man for instance, has been enjoying full weeks at home, enrolled on college courses and can apparently apply to courts to have his driving license re-instated.

This callous thug was given eight years for his part in a robbery and for stabbing a police officer with a crow bar, an act that perforated his bowel and left him fighting for his life. The police man is now stuck with a colostomy bag for the rest of his life, his assailant has to put up with the minor inconvenience of having to report back to prison every now and again.

It is good to see that the prison service thinks that it is OK to have him roaming the streets again, after having served less than a quarter of his sentence. Why bother with prison at all, we could save a fortune by removing this pretense at punishment and having all criminals serve there sentences at home.

No wonder the re-offending rate is at 60%, this man has been taught nothing, except that he can do as he pleases, and people will fall over themselves to try and help him.

Crazed Killer Takes Break From Shopping Trip

Crazed Killer on the Loose

Another escaped mentalist

BBC NEWS | England | London | Female killer flees on shop visit

A woman convicted of murder has gone on the run during an escorted visit to the shops in south London

I find this quite bizarre, but maybe I am just out of touch with the criminal justice system. One would think that someone convicted of murder would not be allowed out of prison just a couple of years later, not even for funerals of loved ones.

Day Trip

These days it seems that murders don’t even have to wait for the deaths of relatives to have days out, now simply a request for a shopping trip can get them out and about. And why not? Why should they be punished? It isn’t as if they are dangerous criminals or as if they have killed anyone, is it?

Det Supt Gary Gornell said: “This individual is dangerous and we need to apprehend her as soon as possible. If anyone sees her, please don’t approach her, but call police immediately.”

Yes, this woman is so dangerous that someone, somewhere thought it a good idea to take her out as a treat on a shopping trip! What did they expect she’d do two years into an indefinite sentence and being a convicted mentalist?

I’ve mentioned this sort of thing before, and it nearly always ends in tears, usually some poor innocent’s who was merely going about their daily business, secure in the knowledge that all the mad axe murderers were locked up. The poor innocent fools rarely take into account the do-gooders and their attempts to reason and understand the voice heeders, at least until they are getting stabbed to death.

So now we just await the inevitable death, that will be labelled entirely preventable by the coroner; for the inevitable investigation that will follow said death, and then for the usual round of ‘lessons will be learned,’ etc from those in charge. All this of course will be followed by the exact same thing happening again, and by me writing yet another post about it. Then again to be fair, it would be impossible for the paranoid schizophrenics to keep up their quota of 1 in 10 of all murders in Britain if the Government didn’t keep letting them out.

The Great Escape

Still, every cloud has a silver lining, Paul Caesar, the focus of another post about this kind of thing, having been tipped off by another inmate that his best chance of making a safe getaway was to catch a train, made his way to the train station. Unfortunately he couldn’t quite grasp the concept of catching a train, and he jumped down onto the tracks and held his arms open and ended up splattered all over the front of one.

We can only hope that Patricia Gillette is armed with the same information, and dazzling intellect.

Broken Britain

Smacking: Apparently occasional smacking does more emotional harm than taking children into care and fostering them to complete strangers

Two stories have really stood out for me this week, and more than demonstrate the problems with this once great nation.

Mother trailed by policeman and warned by council for telling off son at checkout | Mail Online

A mother who reprimanded her children at a supermarket was secretly followed by an off-duty policeman and interrogated by fellow officers who reported her to social services.

Yes, you read that correct. An off-duty policeman decided to follow a woman home, so that he could report her to social services for verbally admonishing her children in public, yes verbally, she didn’t even hit them. If only policemen were so meticulous in their duties when it comes to violent crime.

A recent survey has found that a third of violent crimes are either classed as not warranting further investigation, or wrongly classified. Add to that the fact that 40% of crimes are not investigated at all and it is clear that the police are now nothing more than vote winners, policing only politically important crimes and meeting targets.

The result of not punishing children is clear:

Victim: Beaten until she lost her left eye

Mother blinded after asking drunken yob to stop swearing in front of her 13-year-old daughter | Mail Online

A mother blinded in a sickening attack after she asked a yob to stop swearing in front of her 13-year-old daughter today accused the law of failing victims.

No-one, from their own mothers, right up to the police or courts has the ability to suitably punish kids anymore, meaning that these spoilt little brats are turning into violent, hateful and emotionally defunct animals.

Children are seen, heard but never punished

I remember when the liberal namby pamby’s decided that it was unfair to physically punish children, and they passed a law preventing adults hitting children under the guise of ensuring the safety of children. They assured the doubters that parents could still hit their children, and only those that seriously assault their children would be punished.

It it now clear that ‘assault’ means leaving so much as a red hand print, on legs or buttocks. In this case even the merest threat of physical punishment was enough to warrant Social Services contacting her and giving her a bad parent warning.

Such a warning is no joke, there has been a 38% rise in children being taken into care this year, compared to last year, a huge rise, with more than 25,000 children now being taken into care each year. It doesn’t take much for Social Services to decide to take children away from their parents, and once proceedings have started in the secret family courts, it usually ends in only one result.

Ironically during the same period, the number of young people cautioned or convicted of violent crimes rose by 37%. There are almost a quarter of million violent crimes committed by under 18s each year, yet just 24% of those ever do any ‘jail time’.

Clearly this mentality of not punishing children also pervades the Criminal Justice System.

The Decline of Britain

The average age of young offenders held in custody is tumbling dramatically, as is the average age of young killers, hitting 13 years old this year.

Still, that is no reason to be concerned is it? I am sure that the liberal policies just need a little more time to filter through. After all it has only been 22 years since corporal punishment was banned in schools, and we began sliding down this slippery slope.

Back in the heady days of 1987 the crime rate was relatively low, just 75 indictable offences per thousand people in the UK. Seven years later (the time it takes a child to through primary and secondary school), the crime rate had jumped to an incredible 109 offences per thousand people! God knows what that figure is today as no figures appear to be available, however 28% of those convicted in 2007 were under 18.

Another indicator is the prison population, that stood at a lofty 45,000 in 1987, a decade later it stood at 65,300, today it stands at a staggering 90,000!

More shocking is that in 1960 the prison population was just over 20,000, having increased by around 5,000 (from 15,000 in 1900) in 60 years. In the last 50 years, it has more than quadrupled and cannot be explained away by a larger population. In 1960 just 40 people of out every 100,000 of the population were incarcerated, in 1987 that had more than almost tripled to 110, today it is a staggering 143 people out of every 100,000.

Successive British Governments have managed to taken a largely decent and hard-working society and turn it into a nation of criminals, thugs and murders in less than half a century.  With the vast majority of crimes going unreported (56% were unreported a decade ago), due to a lack of confidence in the police or criminal justice system, and many being misreported, along with Government’s creative accounting (they still claim that the crime is down!), I dread to think what the true crime figure is in Britain.

The BNP might be racist, but are they the only option?

Nick Griffin: Barmy and not helped by his mad eyed look

BBC NEWS | Politics | Griffin complaint over BBC ‘mob’

BNP leader Nick Griffin is to complain to the BBC over his controversial appearance on Question Time, saying he had faced a “lynch mob”.

I have to admit that this was the strangest question time that I have ever seen, and also the most compelling.

I cannot have been the only one wondering what the crazy one-eyed racist was going to do, and then, when it was clear that Gordon Brown was not going to try and block Question Time, what Griffin would do.

Was it a lynch mob? Of course, but then what did Nick Griffin expect? Whether he believes that he was hard done by and it was biased, these were the questions that the public wanted answering.

The Racist

In the end Griffin came across and a slightly bonkers, babbling buffoon. By the end he seemed to become more and more unhinged and was almost frothing at the mouth. Initially the man came across like the unpopular kid at school, desperately trying to get in with the cool gang by laughing at their jokes, hanging around and behaving in a generally awkward and unsettling manner.

He was shaking at the off and looked terrified, but then, this wasn’t the usual working men’s club full of uneducated underclass, this was the big table. His lies, such as denying he said things, when the video footage was clearly available, and deflecting questions, weren’t going to wash here, and that appeared to be what worried him.

It was a poor performance overall and he managed to demonstrate that his moderate stance was a façade, merely hiding his deep seated hatred. The BBC must have been rubbing their hands in glee when they placed him next to black intellectual, Bonnie Greer, a person who, under Griffin’s true White Supremacist views, cannot exist.

That said, despite his views the monster behaved and treated Greer as an equal. The same cannot be said of Greer who thought it appropriate to turn her back on him throughout the programme, clearly under the impression that being disrespectful to someone because of their views, is different from being disrespectful to someone because of their colour. Prejudice is prejudice and it was clearly an ill thought out move on the part of Greer.

In Britain, at least in my day, we were brought up to respect the views of others, even if we disagreed with them, and treating someone with contempt merely because of their views is wrong. I would never do the same to a Global Warming nut.


Youseff Bashir and people like him hate Britain, its culture and all it stands for

Despite all Griffin’s failings, his ravings, his inexplicable fits of laughter and disturbed appearance, had he changed ‘race’ to culture, I would have agreed with most of what he said. Does that make me a racist? Moreover, do I care – no. If protecting my culture upsets others – tough, their culture is no doubt protected elsewhere, mine is not. There is a creeping realisation in Britain, predominately but not exclusively amongst whites, that their culture is being eroded.

In schools Christmas is no longer celebrated, but Divali and Eid are. Anything Christian or traditionally British is deemed either too white, or worse, racist. Which is of course dressed up in buzz words such as divisive, or not inclusive or diverse enough.

Griffin’s remark:

“They must acknowledge that Britain always has been, and must remain – and it’s right that it must remain – a fundamentally British and Christian country based on Western democratic values and not on the eternal values of the Qu’ran.”

Is something that many, many people agree with. I am not a Christian, but the Christian values that this country is based on, or at least were during my youth, have made me the person that I am today, hard working and law abiding. I haven’t moved to another country, I still live in the same country that my ancestors did, so why should those core values change, or indeed why should I need to change?

The point is that I shouldn’t, but we are being brow beaten into accepting other cultures being superior to our own and those that speak out are branded racist xenophobes. The problem is that there is no middle ground, there is no one else tackling these issues other than the BNP, the other parties are running scared as after 50 years of promoting ‘multicultural diversity’ they have no idea what British is anymore and are terrified of upsetting a minority.

As a black man pointed out on the show (demonstrating once again that this isn’t just a ‘white’ or ‘race’ issue), it is because no one wants to tackle immigration that the BNP are becoming more popular. They are the only ones talking of preserving British culture.


Marek Harcar: Despite having numerous convictions for violence he had no trouble getting into Britain to commit murder. Of course now deporting him would breach his human rights!

I have never heard a convincing argument for a multicultural society. Ironically Bonnie Greer pointed out Rome as a multicultural society that flourished, stating that anyone could become a Roman citizen, regardless of race. Which was true, if they were prepared to serve a decade or more in the army. A test of loyalty and dedication that we should perhaps employ in modern Britain, that way, at least the Gurkha’s who seem to be the only people not allowed to settle here, would be allowed to settle here.

Rome eventually fell due to multiculturalism, the advantages gained by the Marius reforms were slowly diluted as more and more cultures were absorbed into the Empire and the army. By the end the Roman army was a pale shadow of its former self, Rome itself had lost many of its ideals, beliefs (adopting Christianity as the official religion for one), culture and military ethos. In the end relying on other hardy and warlike people to do the fighting for them, who then eventually turned on the weak Romans. After all, why continue to fight to protect the weak Roman culture,  when their own was superior?

There are many obvious parallels to be drawn between Rome and modern Britain but no positives that I can see. Baroness Warsi also tried to explain the positives of multiculturalism/immigration stating that ‘Britain should have the brightest and the best here’, sadly for Warsi and the other proponents of multi-ethnic Britain, it is the polar opposite that is actually happening.

We are getting the criminals, the lazy and the dregs of other societies landing here, people whom, if they were British citizens, would not get in anywhere else but here they are most welcome. People like Marek Harcar and Ali Majlat, who, when arrested,  the police in their home nations were gob smacked that they were ever allowed here. So easy is it to come here that Interpol believes that many of Europe’s most wanted criminals are hiding in plain sight in Britain.

Currently almost 20% of all the criminals locked up in British prisons are foreign nationals, and more than 20% of all British murderers are foreign nationals, this ridiculous situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Baroness Warsi and Jack Straw seemed to like the expression, ‘We cannot just pull up the drawbridge..’, well I’d like to know, if they don’t think they should pull it up now with a quarter of all criminals in Britain immigrants, just when they think it would be a good time to do so? When 50% of prisoners are foreign nationals? 80%? Or when the rest of the world decides to use as a huge Alcatraz and walls us all in?

Deporting those that have no business being here, and stopping immigrants from entering this country would cut the crime and murder rates by 20%, who would not think that was a good idea? People like Jack Straw who have round the clock protection and live in areas not affected by crime. Let’s be honest here, immigrants don’t move to the sort of areas that MPs live in, and they are not eligible for their jobs!

Jack ‘Not in the Face’ Straw

Jack Straw: Teary eyed, like his father was at the thought of having to fight those nasty Nazi’s.

I thought that Jack Straw was quite a decent, opened minded bloke, but I found his talk about Churchill and the Nazi’s sickening. He then later brought up the fact that he was from a family of Jewish immigrants, which made it all the more startling that his father had decided to sit out World War II, and leave the fighting to people like my family.

My grandfather’s brother died protecting Jack Straw’s cowardly father, yet my grandfather is a pensioner struggling on the breadline, whilst Straw, never having had to lift a finger to protect his comforts nor make the ultimate sacrifice like so many others, is now sitting pretty. 

It disgusted me that he thought it OK to lecture someone else about the war, when his family did not make the sacrifices that others did, did not do their duty like others did, but reaped more of the benefits than many of the others. He tried to use his family history to point out positives of immigration but all it did was bury the argument, Straw’s family and father were content to take all the benefits of living in Britain, but not fight to defend those freedoms. Which begs the question of whether modern immigrants would follow the Straw example of loyalty.

Because that loyalty could not be relied upon, during the war in which Straw’s dad excused himself, World War II, they rounded up all the Germans in Britain and kept them in prison camps. The Americans did the same with the Japanese. Today, it would be impossible. With Britain likely to get sucked into a war in Pakistan, and with Pakistan the country of origin for most immigrants in Britain, and also most foreign nationals languishing in prison, it could be a security disaster. Indeed so lax are things here, Al Qaeda or the Taliban could very well run their war from Britain, with less fear of getting caught or even deported if they were.

Much as Straw and the others would have us think that these are simply race issues, they are not. It isn’t just a case of black and white, there are a myriad of issues to do with immigration and not least the erosion of our culture and values but also issues of security, stability and crime. The more that politicians dodge this issue, a fact which was very clear on Question Time once again, the more people will move to the BNP.

Our political leaders have basically said that it is their way or the highway, and I’m not for doing it their way.
