What kind of One Nation is Mr Miliband hoping to create!?

Posted 29 Dec 2012 by Walaa Idris

I never understood the venomous hatred that emanates from some lefties every time Lady Thatcher makes the headline news. It happened just before Christmas when Mrs Thatcher was admitted to hospital due to ill health and again yesterday when the government released thirty year old documents charting events that happened during her time as Prime Minster.

Both times, like the times before, regardless of the news subject once the great lady’s name is mentioned these individuals lose all self-control and decency plus every ounce of self-respect. They become like hounds at the scent of blood, all they want is the lifeblood of their prey.

We are where we are today, socially and economically as a result of Labour’s policies.

Our welfare systems, NHS, banks, immigration policies, and social injustices …, need fixing due to these policies. Labour does not like to hear it, the public is tired of hearing it and the government is sick of repeating it but we have a duty and must continue saying it.

For thirteen years, the policies that destroyed this country were made and implanted by a Labour government lead by Labour Prime Ministers and politicians. As a result of these policies, today, many businesses are forced to close, thousands of families have lost their homes and millions young and old are jobless, some might never work again and some will find it impossible to get work in the future. Schools produce illiterate students who cannot read, write or count; the Army is stretched senselessly over an impossible war. The country is bursting at the seams with illegal immigrants deliberately invited by Labour not to mention we are now forced to cutback and reduce spending just to stay afloat.

All that was Labour’s doing and is their legacy.

However, I never once heard any Conservative wish Tony Blair or Gordon Brown ill health or death, nor heard a Tory councillor publicly announce on Twitter, Facebook or via a Blog they will have a party and dance on their grave when they die.

While the adversity felt is equal, what shocks me is the clear divide in emotional intellect and restraint. But what truly puzzles me is that most of these thuggish lefties are actually elected and approved representatives of the Labour party. How is that not wrong!?

‘We are where we are today, socially and economically as a result of Labour’s policies.’ Largely true. Name a time in the past 70 years when at the end of a term(s) of Labour government Britain was not swamped in debt and effectively bankrupt.

And you are quite right Walaa, Labour deliberately lied to the British people – not least their own traditional support base who they have sold down the river – by intentionally flooding the country with immigrants. The fault is not that of those who have settled here of course. I do not blame people for wishing to move around in search of betterment and as long as they are here legally they have done nothing wrong. We hear now that from January 2014 anyone from Romania and Bulgaria will have the right to settle here, including large numbers of gypsies who have no desire to live by societies’ standards and expectations, even in their own countries. Sounds horrible I know and I loath rascism – all bigotry in fact – but facts are facts and I read a comment the other day from someone in Europe, Luxemberg I think, stating that they have a serious problem on the streets with large groups of Roma and another group beginning with S. If just 1% of people from those countries do come to Britain from their relatively poor nations then that would be approaching 300,000 more people. It is very odd that some other EU states chose to restrict access to immigrants from new or potential member states quite legally in the past and no doubt plan to do so again yet Britain has never bothered and apparently has no plans to. Strange too that so many of those allowed to settle here by Labour were not from EU countries or even from member nations of the Commonwealth. Why?

The following article by a former Blairite No.10 policy adviser spilled the beans and proves beyond doubt that Labour deliberately but secretly engineered an immigration boom whilst telling the electorate that the likely influx would be a few thousand. I include an excerpt in case the link fails to work: * ‘Don’t listen to the whingers – London needs immigrants’
London Evening Standard, Andrew Neather, 23rd October, 2009
‘Eventually published in January 2001, the innocuously labelled “RDS Occasional Paper no. 67”, “Migration: an economic and social analysis” focused heavily on the labour market case. But the earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. 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. For despite Roche’s keenness to make her big speech and to be upfront, there was a reluctance elsewhere in government to discuss what increased immigration would mean, above all for Labour’s core white working-class vote. This shone through even in the published report: the “social outcomes” it talks about are solely those for immigrants. And this first-term immigration policy got no mention among the platitudes on the subject in Labour’s 1997 manifesto, headed Faster, Firmer, Fairer.
The results were dramatic. In 1995, 55,000 foreigners were granted the right to settle in the UK. By 2005 that had risen to 179,000; last year, with immigration falling thanks to the recession, it was 148,000. In addition, hundreds of thousands of migrants have come from the new EU member states since 2004, most requiring neither visas nor permission to work or settle. The UK welcomed an estimated net 1.5 million immigrants in the decade to 2008. Part by accident, part by design, the Government had created its longed-for immigration boom. But ministers wouldn’t talk about it…’

In addition to that article the following one is worrying and probably relatively accurate. Certainly far more so than the 2011 Census figures of around 62.5 million suggest anyway. If I had entered the country illegally in the first place or was here on a false or expired visa, perhaps living in one of those innumerable communal shacks in the back gardens of Southall or in the Lincolnshire countryside for instance, then without question I too would keep my head down and not complete any census questionares, regardless of the legal implications, because that would draw attention to my very existance and could lead to my expulsion. Again, an excerpt follows the link for a similar reason. * ‘Facts on a plate: our population is at least 77 million’ – Independent, Martin Baker, Sunday, 28 October 2007
‘It is the statistic that dare not speak its name, though eventually it must. It has huge ramifications for the civil and political life of this country, the health of the equity markets and, most immediately, the residential property market. So don’t forget you read it here first: the population of the UK is presently somewhere between 77 and 80 million. The 2001 census, already hopelessly out of date and easy to avoid for those who find filling in forms a trifle inelegant, numbered us at a little under 59 million. But as statistics go, that one’s most definitely a damned lie. My sources for the above statement are good, but scared of admitting the truth for fear of incurring the wrath of Whitehall. It’s like the best way of monitoring illegal drug consumption: forget the pious statements from ministers – the foolproof method is to sample our water and the effluent in it. That’s easily the best way of monitoring what the nation has been consuming.
Consumption – that’s the thing. Based on what we eat, one big supermarket chain reckons there are 80 million people living in the UK. The demand for food is a reliable indicator; as Sir Richard Branson says, you can have all the money in the world but you can only eat one lunch and one dinner. The supermarket in question was privately lobbying the Competition Commission to let it grow its market share. The argument, reasonably enough, was that the market was far bigger than the regulator realised, so expanding the network was fair. I have a second, respectable, source. A major, non-commercial agricultural institution reckons there are 77 million of us in the UK. Again, its reckoning is based on what we eat.
That faint background noise you’re hearing as you read this is the sound of everyone slithering off the record. Why? In political terms, standing behind these figures would be to toss a hand grenade into a vat of gasoline. People would be hounded out of a job for scaremongering. The Office for National Statistics’ figures, published last week, predict a population of 75 million by 2051. It’s an honest estimate but horribly wide of the mark because number counting doesn’t work effectively. If you want to know how many there are of us, ask a food firm.’

It is important I think to note that it was the Conservatives in the 1990s who did away with exit controls at our borders, meaning that we could not possibly tell any more how many people that entered the country on temporary visas actually did leave as required once they expired. Thus we began the process of losing track of the UK population. One can only ask why, after almost 3 years in office, the current Conservative-dominated Coalition have not bothered to reintroduce those exit controls. I have travelled widely on three continents and never expected to be allowed into a country but not counted out. That is perfectly reasonable and it never troubled me one iota. It makes no sense, unless it is actually as I suspect part of a long-practiced but publicly unacknowledged policy. Could it be that politicians lie to us perhaps?

Anyone who has had the moral courage to question all this is immediately branded a ‘rascist’ or a ‘fascist’ by many on the Left. They have good teachers: who can forget Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman referring to the Lib-Dem’s Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander as a “ginger rodent”. Vermine in other words. That is how the Nazis referred to Jews. In one sentence that biased, unpleasant and idiotic woman had tarred all people who had red hair and looked different. The same woman from the same party whose members talk equality and tolerance but so often fail to live up to those principles themselves as individuals. In short, they are hypocrites and apply their principles selectively as it pleases them. Thus they are not principles at all, for a principle is either universal or it is nothing. Anyone who occasionally looks at left-wing blogs will know what I mean. The intolerance and unpleasantness of the Left is frightening, no different at all from the extreme right-wing. This should not surprise anyone as millions were proscribed against, suffered and died in communist states in exactly the same way as they did in Hitler’s Germany. The arguments may have differed but the results were the same.

At best Labour are liars and deceivers. As you rightly point out they often fail to accept and practice standards of behaviour that others agree are the bare minimum of common decency. But the Conservatives too are deceivers and are all talk and little action. Pretty incompetent too. In truth I think their public pronouncements are just a sham. Immigration is ‘down’ to something in the region of 180,000 in 2012 I think, perhaps a bit less? In other words, it continues to go ‘up’. One can only assume they have no intention of reducing immigration, referring instead to a reduction, but only in the rate of increase. Frankly much the same seems to apply to their action against the national deficit.

Exactly how is Britain going to cope in future? You’d think GDP was sky-rocketing, our finances and ability to look after our own people in the best of health and that Britain was not already one of the most desnsely populated countries on earth. This country looks increasingly like a lost cause and its own people are apparently unimportant to the Westminster circus. What happened to David Cameron’s promised and much vaunted British Bill of Rights? What happened to the refendum on future EU membership? Now we have his ridiculous and unworkable policy on gay marriage (the new Archbishop of Canterbury’s view too) and his wholly spurious ‘guarantee’ that churches will not be bullied by law in future into having to conduct such ceremonys if they decide it is against scripture and choose not to do so. He knows full well that any such guarantee is utterly worthless as it is EU courts that decide law now, regularly overturning the decisions of our own. It is dishonest.

We are no longer a sovereign nation. Our independence was given away bit by bit on the sly, starting when Thatcher signed the Maastricht Treaty. She seemed to realise her mistake but too late. That is no excuse. It will only get worse as Europe moves inexorably towards becoming a single unified state, it’s now openly stated aim, and one in which Germany holds sway. The EU already controls the finances of some member nations. Cameron does not intend to do anything about this, regularly re-stating that he thinks Britain’s continued membership of the EU is in Britain’s best interests in one breath whilst blaming the Eurozone in the next for his party’s failure to get the economy moving. There is a big world out there and that is where the opportunities of tomworrow lie, where the real growth is. Only we need to believe in ourselves more and not in the weazel words of the political elite. We need a bit of Churchillian spirit, not the spirit of Neville Chamberlain. What can we trust after so many broken promises? Should we even be surprised? No, Cameron said to the people of this country before coming to power: “I am the real heir to Blair”. Forgive me but most people came to realise, though far too late, just what a liar Blair was. More fool those who continue to trust this government’s pronouncements.

Quite what has happened to the Conservative Party heaven only knows but they appear to have been politically castrated. Its MPs blow much hot air but they are too comfortable in their jobs to rock the boat much. The EU knows this. It holds sway now. Personally I am now seriously considering voting for UKIP in 2015 as I see no point at all in voting for the traditional parties. They are self-serving, deceitful and unworthy of further support. I trust them not.
