“First they came for the communists and I did not speak out because I was not a communist; Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist; Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew; Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Baroness Lawrence and her former husband for the hard work for their struggles to bring their son Stephen’s murders to justice with the support of Labour Movement without the movement this would not have happen without their support and congratulate a Labour Government for implementing the Macpherson Report.
Secondly I would like to take a moment to say it’s a bit rich for Immigration Minister Mark Harper to deny the checks used racial profiling which he is basing it on intelligence on spot checks at railway stations across the country If illegal immigrants checks is to be carried out it should be done even-handed not just on one particular race. For this reason I’m glad that both Equality Watchdog and Unite Union are investigating to seek if there is a case for “inciting racial hatred”(race discrimination) by sending ad vans around London and Birmingham, Manchester encouraging illegal immigrants to “go home”.
Interestingly on the Sunday Morning Live Programme there was a debate on whether we as a nation should do our part in bring more refuges into our country given the UK are encouraging illegal immigration to go home.
I find it incomprehensible to see how this will fit into the coalition agenda on the one hand the coalition are funding the Syrian rebels yet our budget is alleged to be tight to the stretching point and there is more people who unemployed, not enough building of affordable social housing.
Here is an interesting article from Peter Hitchens the Government’s pretence of being resolute and decisive on immigration is a lie. It is almost as bad as New Labour’s secret decision to transform the country with migrants. Do they really think that hiring a couple of stupid publicity vans, fraudulently claiming that illegal migrants are in serious danger of arrest and deportation will fool anybody? Alas, they do.
Will you be fooled? I beg you not to be. I beg you, instead, to be angry and vengeful, and to make that revenge hurt, to vote UKIP as often as you can, to destroy the wretched ‘Conservative’ Party which so insults your intelligence. Suspect passengers: David Cameron is engaged on a slippery and dishonest propaganda campaign over immigration
Suspect passengers: David Cameron is engaged on a slippery and dishonest propaganda campaign over immigration. It is because he knows that you are rightly worried about immigration that David Cameron is engaged on his slippery and dishonest propaganda campaign. He personally couldn’t care less about the problem.
It doesn’t threaten his job or push his wages down. It doesn’t alter his neighbourhood beyond recognition, trapping him in a place where he no longer feels welcome or at ease.
As he doesn’t know what Magna Carta means, and has never heard of the Bill of Rights, I think we can safely say he’s not that worried about the disappearance of our once-beloved culture of law and liberty.
He’s even got a Minister – Nick Boles – whose job it is to destroy the countryside. If Britain becomes a featureless concreted-over province in a Multiculti Euroland, he won’t care. He’ll still be rich enough to afford peace and space, when they have become impossible dreams for the rest of us. For him, and those like him among the Relaxed Rich, immigration means cheap nannies and cheap restaurants.
For his friends in business it means cheap and easily bullied workers. For his friends in New Labour (whose heir he is and whose seat in power he is keeping warm), it means even more. Unlike Mr Cameron, the Blairites knew what they were doing when they opened our ports to all who came.
A secret government paper, circulated among Ministers in October 2000 (but censored before being released a year later), revealed their aim was to ‘maximise the contribution of migration to the Government’s social and economic objectives’.
What were those objectives?
It’s easy to guess, looking at this collection of 1960s campus revolutionaries, spiced up with unrepentant ex-Trotskyists and ex-Communists, and cheered on by the anti-British London media classes.
But in fact we know. A typical London liberal and New Labour speechwriter, Andrew Neather, boasted about it in October 2009 and then wished he hadn’t.
He burbled about how immigration had been ‘highly positive’ for ‘middle-class Londoners’. He wrote: ‘It’s not simply a question of foreign nannies, cleaners and gardeners – although frankly it’s hard to see how the capital could function without them.’
He was even franker: ‘But this wave of immigration has enriched us much more than that. A large part of London’s attraction is its cosmopolitan nature.
It is so much more international now than, say, 15 years ago, and so much more heterogeneous than most of the provinces, that it’s pretty much unimaginable for us to go back.’
That’s an interesting use of ‘us’, there. He didn’t mean you, I don’t think. But above all came this admission from the heart of government, where Mr Neather once worked. Controversial: Adverts have been driven around London on vans to encourage illegal immigrants to go home
Controversial: Adverts have been driven around London on vans to encourage illegal immigrants to go home. The opening of our ports had ‘a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural’. Even this apostle of modernity was a bit worried. ‘I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn’t its main purpose to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date. That seemed to me to be a manoeuvre too far.
‘Ministers were very nervous about the whole thing … there was a reluctance elsewhere in government to discuss what increased immigration would mean, above all for Labour’s core white working-class vote.’
I happen to think this brief glimpse of the truth was the most important political revelation of our time. I believe the ideas behind it still rule. And in case you’re still fooled by Mr Cameron’s disgraceful pretence, take a look at the Commons Public Administration Committee report on the Government’s noisy claims to have cut immigration. It is devastating. It shows that the figures used by Ministers to claim they are closing the doors are little better than guesswork.
Migration into this country, legal and illegal, continues apace. The transformation of Britain into somewhere else accelerates. The official propaganda about economic benefits is mostly tripe (see an excellent analysis in Ed West’s powerful new book The Diversity Illusion). The pressure on schools, GPs, hospitals, housing and transport is huge and growing.
We have been betrayed. It is not the fault of the migrants, with whom we must seek to live in harmony. But those responsible, in all the major parties, must be punished for their lies. We were fooled once. It will be our shame if we are fooled again.This message in actual fact has been mainly targeted at students and some people who have over stayed as their visa has expired. It becomes very worrying when the likes of UKIP leader starts to sides with illegal immigrants then we all know what UKIP is pandering to for the short term of border control.
This bill board is one of the boldest message in coded to all the Conservatives rank and file to get ready to do battle with the leadership contest between Theresa May VS David Cameron should he does not win the General Election.
How many has seen UKIP of lately is sitting on the sidelines only speaking as and when required to put the knife into the Conservatives whist the BNP are regrouping for the Conservatives to do their dirty work. As for the EDL they will come out in full support of the BNP during the election times.
It’s no surprise with all the recent cuts in all public services which has led to the short fall of staff in the Immigration and Broader Agencies that pressure are mounting to breaking point with low morale and target driven. I’m sadden by the fact of the root causes of the loophole in the legislations which are not closed is being exploited by criminals and some employers to recruit illegal immigrants and unemployed to zero contracts for their financial gains.
Unemployment risks remaining stubbornly at around 2.5 million people over the next few years, leading economists have warned.
Forecasters predicted that the number of people without work could remain around the 8% margin and not start going down until as late as 2016, linking it to an inability to exploit the UK’s full productivity and the phenomenon of “underemployment”.
Vicky Redwood, Chief UK Economist at Capital Economics, told the Huffington Post UK: “We expect unemployment to stay at around 8% until about the end of 2015, mainly because we think it’ll be a pretty jobless recovery in the sense that productivity fell over recession.”
“Businesses don’t want to hire and don’t need to. Their work forces aren’t working at full capacity and so they can produce more without having to take on extra staff.”
Redwood’s gloomy forecast echoed the latest predictions released by the influential National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), which suggested unemployment would stay at around 8% over this year and the next.
“The gradual gain in economic momentum is not enough to close the large negative output gap or reduce unemployment significantly. With unemployment high and no evidence of upward pressure on real wages there is still considerable spare capacity. Underemployment measures suggest that there is even more slack in the labour market than the headline unemployment rate suggests,” NIESR analysts wrote in their latest report.
It’s alleged that Howard Archer, Chief UK Economist at IHS Global Insight, agreed with NIESR’s forecast, telling the Huffington Post UK: ‘I think we’ll see extra jobs coming in over 2013 but unemployment rising or staying broadly where it is.”
Official analysis from the Office of National Statistics found that the UK economy was still 3.3% away from returning to its pre-recession peak in GDP. According to the NIESR, this would be 1.3% further than predicted and indicate the recession was worse for the UK than previously thought.
But in positive news for the UK economy, NIESR lifted its UK growth forecast to 1.2% in 2013 and 1.8% in 2014, noting a “gradual gain in economic momentum”.
“The main cause of the improvement in the economic growth outlook is a rise in the prospects for consumer spending growth. This increased contribution from consumer spending is at the expense of household saving, rather than a consequence of rising real disposable incomes,” the analysts explained.
Responding to the news, a Conservative Party spokesperson said: “Britain is holding its nerve, we are sticking to our plan, and the British economy is on the mend – but there is still a long way to go. “We will not let up in our determination to make sure we put right all that went wrong in our economy.”
Many will agree that immigration has its positive side to our economy where it has boost employment from foreign companies to the UK and export has increases to other parts of the world.
