The British Referendum On Europe

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, European Union, Government, Immigrants, News, Parliament, Politics, UK with tags , , , , on 21/05/2015 by floroy1942

David Cameron promised a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union (E.U.) and it got him elected, apart from the fact he had no real competition (I say that because no-one with any intelligence would vote for that clown Miliband). Cameron promised the referendum before the end of 2017 and this time he will have to honour that promise.

Which Is More Important?  Our Country Or The Union?

Which Is More Important? Our Country Or The Union?

It is still 2015 and yet the muck is starting fly already because some people are insisting that E.U. migrants living in the U.K. should be allowed to vote in the referendum. How totally stupid is that!

The problem seems to be that there are over one million E.U. migrants living in the U.K., and they could well tip the balance to us staying in when the majority of British people want us to get out. They will certainly vote to stay in for their own interests.

In my view, another thorn in the side are the immigrants that have flooded in since Tony Blair opened the doors to this country. We currently have 7.5 million immigrants in the country who make up 11.9% of the total population. They too will have a huge effect on the outcome of this referendum. I believe these people will also vote to stay in because they can see major immigration curbs coming if we opt out, and they may prevent family members from joining them.

The idea has been put forward that only those born and bred should be allowed a vote, and to be honest, I agree. If that is not the case then the future of this country could well be decided by the immigrant population, and that is not right.

A Man With A Dilemma. Let's Hope He Makes The Right Decision

A Man With A Dilemma. Let’s Hope He Makes The Right Decision

David Cameron has said that he will make his decision known before the referendum date, but I for one hope he airs on the side of caution. Currently there are worries that pro-Europeans will try to rig the outcome by demanding that everyone has a say in the final vote. If that happens, in my view it will be a disaster. E.U. immigrants are currently allowed to vote in local and European elections but not general elections and that is how it should stay.

Some people in parliamentary circles are pushing for the referendum to be brought forward to 2016. Labour leadership front-runner Andy Burnham said in an interview, “It should be in the Queen’s Speech that it should be in 2016, and the message I would send to Cameron is that I would offer support to deliver it in 2016. It is not going to be in anybody’s interest for this to rumble on through this parliament. We have to get to it. We have to do it, embrace the argument. That is the most fundamental problem facing British business right now.” I wonder however if he will support the government on the voting question. It should be interesting to find out.

I hope that we can get out from under the yoke of Europe that dictates to us how we should run our country. With its Human Rights Laws, Immigration Laws and Justice Laws etc. this country is slowly being strangled, and any true born and bred British person has less rights than an immigrant! That is not the way it is supposed to be. We need to leave Europe and run our own affairs as we have always done, for the experiences of the past have proven that our system works, and works well.

You’ve Got It Wrong Ken – Clark on Prison Reform

Posted in Britain, England, Government, Government Spending, Immigrants, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Old Age Pensioner, Parliament, Police, Prison, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , on 05/03/2011 by floroy1942

Ken Clark, the British Justice Secretary, has come under fire from Magistrates for his prison reform agenda. He has stated he wants prisoners who are “unlikely to get a prison sentence” to be given automatic bail. It’s all part of his plan to reduce costs and solve the overcrowding in british prisons.

Where It All Begins

Thankfully, those with more brains, i.e. the Magistrates, are coming out in opposition. Due to the overcrowding, most felons get off with community service or ‘slap on the wrist’ anyway these days, so that means the greater majority of criminals, around 35,000, will be back on the streets straight away if Ken has his way.

The magistrates are, quite rightly in my opinion, afraid offenders will have all the time they need to intimidate witnesses, commit further crimes, and fail to turn up for their hearings. All fairly logical and pretty obvious to anyone but a dimwit.

Another Misguided Politician

Ken Clark has put forward many proposals to ease the prison population, among them halving the sentences of criminals who confess to their crimes, and releasing 3,000 of the current 80,000 inmate population early. He claims he wants to “break the cycle” of reoffending by tackling the causes of crime. Bullshit Ken!

The only thing a hardened criminal respects is a long hard prison term and nothing less will do the job. It is long past time when authorities recognize that criminals are a danger to society and no amount of hand-wringing and psychological babble is going to make them mend their ways. Certainly not reducing sentences, for all that will do is make the situation worse. If a felon knows he can commit crimes and get away with it almost scot-free he will laugh at the justice system all the way to his short-stay cell.

To give the man credit, he has stated that inmates of HM Prisons should be made to work a full working week just like the rest of us, and more demanding community sentencing is required, which is fine so long as the correct controls are in place. He also advocates deporting immigrant criminals instead of giving them a custodial sentence in Britain. Now that I do agree with!

All the Comforts of Home

I have made my feelings on this general subject amply in the past in previous posts and still believe heavier sentencing and removing the ‘5 star hotel’ atmosphere in prisons is the best answer. Make prisons something to be feared by all criminals as it was in the past. That will sure as hell break the cycle of reoffending and no doubt about it.

It seems all the measures being taken by Ken Clark are aimed at reducing the prison population and more importantly, reducing costs. His stated aim is to reduce the £4Bn per year prison and probation costs by 20% in the next 4 years. Good Luck Ken – You’ll need it! The general public will as usual be the losers!

One of the main problems today is overcrowding, but to me that means we should build more prisons not release prisoners early to reduce it. Although some attempts have been made to increase the prison capacity over the last three decades, it has proven to be insufficient. The main reason for this is the inability of the authorities to prevent villains from reoffending, and jail sentencing has become so much of a joke its no longer a deterrent.

That's Funny - I Don't Have One. You?

Today’s jailbirds live in far better conditions than the majority of our old age pensioners, which in itself is a scandal. There is nothing hard or harsh about prison life these days, its more akin to a holiday camp with all the comforts of home. TV, gym equipment, snooker tables, cinema, games and library, in fact everything we ordinary law-abiding mortals do not have. And on top of that, they get to sit around on their fat duffs for most of the time. Where in the name of all thats holy is the incentive to ‘go straight’ after a prison sentence?

I am not going to go into what I think prisons should be like again, I have done it so often, suffice it to say, if you are interested, I refer you to my earlier posts as follows:

Six Months In Here and You Won't Re-Offend!

There can be little doubt that our justice system is in urgent need of a major overhaul, for the prime facet of law enforcement, i.e. taking criminals out of circulation and thereby protecting the public, no longer seems to be a prime motivator.

From what I have read in recent news bulletins I am convinced that Ken Clark is totally on the wrong track. His reforms will do nothing to bolster public faith in the justice system of our country, and as the magistrates have already said, they are more likely to undermine that confidence. Ah Well! Roll on the next politician who promises to be ‘tough on crime’!

Baroness Warsi On the Wrong Foot

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, Arab, Britain, Child Abuse, Demonstration, Europe, Free Speech, Government, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Justice, MP's, Muslim, Nuclear Weapons, Parliament, Relationships, Religion, Sharia Law, Taliban, Terrorism, Terrorists, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 20/01/2011 by floroy1942

It is not unusual for people in a position of power to make ill-advised statements aimed at the general public, and it would seem Baroness Warsi, co-leader of the Conservative Party and cabinet minister in Davis Cameron’s Coalition government, is no exception.

Baroness Warsi

She is the first Muslim member of the cabinet, and like most politicians, has ‘engaged mouth before brain’ on a subject extremely controversial in Britain at the moment; that of Islamophobia.

Extracts of a speech she intends giving to Leicester University today (20/1/2011) were leaked to the press in advance and have already raised a storm of criticism across most newspapers in the country.

The rank and file have certainly let loose in no uncertain terms in comments on the news story. Not only as a leading politician, but also as a Muslim she seems totally out of touch with public opinion. This, lets face it, is not unusual for a politician!

In her speech she claims that Islamophobia, and the separation of Muslims into two general groups, i.e., moderate and extremist, has become socially acceptable in Britain today and could lead to the further alienation of the Muslim community. What else did the silly woman expect when we’ve had terrorism on the streets?

A Suitcase Nuclear Weapon

Western nations have increasingly come under attack from Muslim terror groups ever since 9/11. Many people are holding their collective breath hoping Bin Laden and his cronies don’t get hold of a nuclear weapon!

The very fact that people put Muslims into two categories shows clearly not all Muslims are blamed for the violence aimed at them.

Despite what she says, there is widespread apathy among Muslim communities in Britain when it comes to condemning terrorism. I have not yet heard of any group in any country stepping forward and condemning in the strongest terms the violence committed by their brethren, and what is more, I don’t think I ever will. This point was raised by many commentators on the report in The Daily Telegraph.

In most peoples minds, if you don’t condemn a certain action, then by default you condone it. It is to the Baroness’s credit that in the proposed speech, she asks moderate Muslim groups to disassociate themselves from extremist Muslims saying; “Those who commit criminal acts of terrorism in our country need to be dealt with not just by the full force of the law,” adding “They also should face social rejection and alienation across society and their acts must not be used as an opportunity to tar all Muslims.” At least she got one thing right!

Baroness Warsi has proven by this outburst, that she has failed completely to understand the concerns the british people have over the massive Muslim immigration that took place under that last Labour government.

In 2001 there were 1.6 million Muslims in the country, which today has risen to 2.9 million, an increase of almost 100%. Thanks Tony!!!!

She Has At Least Learnt One Of Our Traditions!

The main thing that irritates the british public is the refusal of the majority of these immigrants to assimilate into our society. When you adopt a new country as your own you are expected, quite rightly, to obey the laws and accept the culture, traditions and language of your new home. You do NOT bring with you your own laws, culture and traditions and force them on your hosts.

Daily we hear of the so-called ‘hate preachers’ in mosques who make full use of the liberal free speech laws of our country to spread their poison across the community.

It has been amply proven that many races such as Jews, Indians and former members of the Caribbean nations who moved to Britain for a better life, have assimilated into our ways practically trouble free, for the simple reason they are prepared to. This cannot be said of the Muslim population, for they have housed themselves in close-knit communities and practically sealed themselves off from the british way of life.

They have their own system of laws (Sharia), and continue with traditions like polygamy, ‘honour’ killings’, and the mutilation of young girls genitalia. The Baroness has been condescending enough to admit some british Muslims do not do sufficient to integrate into society, which I think is an in-controversial fact!

Although now a member of the House of Lords, Baroness Warsi classes herself as a “Northern, working-class roots, urban, working mum” complete with Yorkshire accent, but, according to reports, received her title for one reason only, so she could serve in the shadow cabinet during the Labour years. She didn’t earn it!

Cameron and Baroness Warsi

After entering politics in 2004, she made a rapid rise through the ranks of the Conservative Party, mainly it seems because David Cameron liked her ‘plain speaking’, although some think she is too prone to making ‘gaffe’s’. Since May she has been a member of the cabinet.

Apparently, according to some reports, she has been heavily criticised by many extremist Muslims as not being “religious enough”. This I suppose could be interpreted as her not doing sufficient to help the Muslims get their own way!

As the most powerful Muslim woman in the country, why for example doesn’t she lead a concerted attack on all the hate preachers who infest the mosques of our land. These parasites incite hatred among the Muslim population for Britain and all it stands for. They have been responsible for the conversion of many formally moderate youths into extremists, that are not only responsible for many of the attacks on innocent people, but fight for the Taliban or Al Queda. If Baroness, you wish to use your position for something positive, that would be a good start.

If You Don’t Like It Here – GO HOME!

It would also be of considerable help if you would clear the streets of the extremist rabble who, making full use of our freedom of speech laws,  insult our dead soldiers who died fighting to free the Iraqi and Afghanistan people from the oppressive regime under which they lived, And lets not forget those malcontents who parade up and down with placards declaring ‘Islam will rule the world’ and “Behead those who insult Islam”.

In general terms, your speech is nothing less than I would expect from a Muslim living in our country. Instead of criticising this country and its people who gave you the opportunity to be where you are, try having a go at your own, that is of course presuming you can do that without ending up under a sentence of death from the extremists!!!

In conclusion I would like to point out most strongly, that any Muslim who comes to our shores ready and willing to accept our way of life, traditions and laws is, in my book, most welcome. On the other hand, those who will not should GO HOME!

Roy.
