Baroness Warsi: I would die for my beliefs, says Muslim peer – Surprise as UAF/SWP havent blamed the EDL for this one.

Baroness Warsi has had threats since becoming Britain's first Muslim Cabinet minister

Baroness Warsi, Britain’s first Muslim Cabinet minister, has said she is prepared to “have a short but productive life” rather than resign from front-line politics in the face of serious threats from Islamic extremists.

The Conservative Party co-chairman said that being “brave” rather than having a “play-it-safe life” was a worthwhile price for being a pioneer at the highest levels of government.

It is believed that the peer has faced serious threats from Muslim extremists.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Baroness Warsi said her situation “worried” her family.

However, she said: “Why go into politics if you are not going to be brave?

“If you want to stand on the sidelines and not stand up for what you believe in, politics is the wrong game to be in.

“It worries my parents and it worries my husband and it worries my kids and they obviously don’t like it when I hold this approach.

“If that means you have a short but productive life, that is worth doing, than having a long but play-it-safe life. I believe that there are things that are far more important.

“If people when they were fighting against apartheid or fighting for the black civil rights movement … thought I could be dead tonight if I do this – I don’t think people think like that when people feel passionately enough about something and feel this is an issue of huge principle.”

Two years ago on a visit to Luton, Baroness Warsi was attacked by Muslim extremists who do not support a Muslim woman having such an important role in British political life.

“If Luton was anything to go by when I was egged, my natural reaction was to turn round and start on them rather than walk away,” she said. “My natural reaction is always – how dare you?”

100,000 Eastern European migrants now free to claim full benefits in Britain worth tens of millions of pounds after EU ruling

Hundreds of thousands of migrants will gain full access to Britain’s generous benefits system within weeks.

When eight former Eastern Bloc countries joined the EU in 2004, rules were put in place to restrict access to welfare.

But these rules lapse on May 1 and cannot be renewed, raising fears of mass benefits tourism.

After just three months’ ‘residency’ in the country, eastern European migrants will be able to claim hundreds of pounds a week in jobseeker’s allowance, council tax and housing benefits.
Previously they had to work for a full year before being able to claim welfare.

Critics said Labour made a ‘huge mistake’ when agreeing that the rules would last for just seven years and called safeguards ‘paper thin’.

Since the EU expanded in 2004, Britain has experienced its largest ever wave of migration – despite official predictions that just 13,000 workers would want to move here.

Those searching for jobs have been required to pay £90 and sign up with the Worker Registration Scheme, run by the Home Office and Department for Work and Pensions. They were then denied access to benefits until they had completed a full year of work.

More than a million have joined the scheme and figures suggest there are some 625,000 still in work in the UK.

But from May migrants from Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic will simply have to pass a ‘habitual residency test’ – showing they have been looking for work for three months.

The only other requirement is that they show benefits officials where they live, prove they want to settle here and show any employment history.

At that point they can get access to a council tax rebate, housing benefit worth hundreds of pounds a week and jobseeker’s allowance of £65 a week.

The change in rules will also lead to a rise in the number of eastern Europeans living in Britain who receive child benefit for children still living in their home country.

Figures last year showed there are already more than 32,000 children living in eastern Europe whose parents receive child benefit in Britain.

Under EU rules, child benefit is paid to all parents in the UK, even if their children have stayed in their home countries.

During the recession the numbers coming in from the so-called A8 countries dropped off.

However, figures released last month showed the number of eastern Europeans coming to work in Britain had risen for the first time in four years. Arrivals who registered with the WRS hit 116,760 – an increase of 7 per cent on a year earlier, when the total was 108,920.

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of MigrationWatch, said: ‘The previous government made a huge mistake in allowing people from much poorer states to claim benefits in Britain once the seven-year transition period ends. Such safeguards as exist are not even paper thin.’

A DWP spokesman denied migrants could ‘just come to the UK and start claiming benefits’. He said: ‘We have strict rules in place to protect the system from any abuse.

‘We will be keeping our benefit rules for people from abroad under review to ensure it’s secure.’
‘We have to remain in line with our national and international obligations.

‘However, it is necessary to protect the taxpayer and the benefit system from possible abuse. This is our number one priority.’

‘We have rules in place to prevent abuse of the benefit system and prevent benefit tourism.’

Britons ‘on CCTV 70 times a day’

The UK has about 1.85 million CCTV cameras and the average Briton is caught on camera 70 times a day, police figures have suggested.

The new estimates suggest there are less than half the number of cameras in the UK than previously thought.

Deputy Chief Constable Graeme Gerrard, the lead on CCTV for the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), said the latest numbers, based on a map of CCTV systems in Cheshire, were intended to “inject more rigorous figures into the debate” over Britain as a surveillance state.

The widely-used estimate of 4.2 million cameras in the UK was based on a 1.5km road in a busy shopping district and extrapolated out for the entire UK.

And the previous estimate that the “average Briton is caught on security cameras some 300 times a day” was based on a fictional tour of CCTV hot-spots.

Writing in CCTV Image, Mr Gerrard said: “Eight years after the 4.2 million figure was first published, we now have research that indicates that the figure is less than half this guesstimate. We also know that unless you make a particular point of visiting as many CCTV hotspot areas as you can, you are unlikely to be captured on CCTV 300 times a day.”

He admitted the latest figures were still estimates, but said they showed the number of CCTV cameras in the UK to be around 1.85 million. “And the real figure for the number of times the average person is likely to be ‘caught’ on CCTV in a day is less than 70 – and most of these will be at your workplace or fleeting glimpses by cameras located in shops”.

Earlier this week, the Home Office unveiled plans for a code of conduct to better regulate the spread of CCTV amid fears there will be “unchecked proliferation” without it.

It also said features such as facial recognition and powerful zooms were “coming closer to being an established part of the CCTV landscape” and that cameras were now being used in taxis as “a natural part of industry growth”.

While acknowledging unmanned spy drones were not currently widespread, it added that their use should be considered “within any overarching strategy”.

Muslim Domination of Public Space

Aggressive Assertion of Muslim Supremacy by Domination of Public Space

As soon as they move into Dar al-Harb (the lands of the infidel) in any numbers, Islamists think they have a God-given right to dominate public space and intimidate the infidels into submission.

Mosques are of course notorious examples of this (see Mosque blight) but their swaggering, aggressive arrogance and sense of preferential entitlement make them obnoxious to the indigenous inhabitants in many other ways.

The notorious Ground Zero Victory Mosque is just the latest example of a process that has been going on for years in the West, and centuries in lands conquered by Islam:

St George parade cancelled because it’s offensive to Muslims
“A MARCH to celebrate St George’s Day has been axed – because the authorities fear it could spark race riots. About 1,500 children were due to take part in a parade to commemorate the patron saint of England on Wednesday. But council bosses in Bradford, West Yorks, have ditched the event over concerns it could upset the Asian community, many of them Muslim. http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/view/35580/St-George-s-parade-scrapped-in-case-it-upsets-Muslims/

Muslims threaten New York restaurant for serving alcohol
“Yet another stealth jihad attempt to compel non-Muslims to change their behavior to accommodate Muslim sensibilities. “Spotted Piglet Hiccups: Boozy Breslin Clashes With Mosque,” by Meredith Bryan for the New York Observer, October 27 (thanks to Ed): The much-hyped, soon-to-open Breslin restaurant, situated in the 12-story Ace Hotel on Broadway and 29th, is giving members of the Masjid Ar-Rahman mosque across the street some agita. “Five times a day, there’s a hundred cabs on the street–the good news is you can always get a cab,” co-owner Ken Friedman told the Transom the other evening. He said some mosque visitors “object to seeing people drink alcohol.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/10/muslims-threaten-new-york-restaurant-for-serving-alcohol.html

No go areas in London
When Abu Izzadeen, the firebrand Islamist militant, berated John Reid last week for “daring” to visit a Muslim area, the Home Secretary bridled, as did many others, at his suggestion that part of London was off limits for a British minister of the Crown. There was nowhere in this country from which anyone should be excluded, Mr Reid said; nowhere that could be called exclusively Muslim. He was speaking just a couple of Tube stops from West Ham, close to the site for the 2012 Olympic stadium, where a huge row is about to erupt over plans to construct a mosque. However, this is not any old mosque built to serve the local community. It will be the largest place of worship in Europe, a gigantic three-storey Islamic centre, with schools and other facilities, able to hold at least 40,000 worshippers and up to 70,000 if necessary. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/personal-view/3632591/The-shadow-cast-by-a-mega-mosque.html

Labour council enforces Ramadan on non Muslims
Despite recent temperatures pushing 30 C Labour controlled Tower Hamlets Council has ordered all councillors not to drink in meetings during Ramadan (starts in about 2 DAYS), so as not to offend Muslim councillors. It has even gone so far as to order non Muslim councillors not to eat the finger food prepared for council meetings until Muslims break their fast at sunset – despite the food being served in a separate room. http://conservativehome.blogs.com/centreright/2008/08/labour-council.html

Moslem monstrosity ruins English skyline
So the new dome has been erected on top of the local headquarters of Islam in Cheltenham and to make sure the former owners of Cheltenham know who their new masters are to be, it is painted bright turquoise and lit up with flood lights at night. In your face 24/7. Suck it up Cheltenham. The fact that there was no planning permission for this colour or lights means nothing to the enrichers of Cheltenham. The sudden appearance of the dome alarmed some passers-by. Tony Davis, from Charlton Kings, said he did not think it fitted in with the surrounding buildings. The 52-year-old said: “I was driving back from Tewkesbury and I saw this thing that resembled a Belisha beacon. “It stands out a mile and I really don’t feel it should be there. I felt my blood pressure going up just looking at it. “It’s all very well having it, but I don’t think it should be allowed to ruin Cheltenham’s skyline like that.”

Porcelain pigs offend Muslims
LEICESTER — Police here in central England seized a collection of porcelain pigs from a house’s window sill after Muslims complained that they were offensive.
“I just couldn’t believe it, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry,” Mrs Nancy Bennett, the owner of the 17 miniature pigs, told the Sun tabloid newspaper.
The porcelain figures were held at the local police station, while Mrs Bennett was threatened with prosecution if she replaces the collection. Her house is located in the same street as the city’s main mosque, meaning that Muslim worshippers often passed by her front window where the pig figurines were on display. “Muslims find pigs highly offensive,” explained police officer David Griffiths. “That is why the complaints were made”. http://www.dispatch.co.za/1998/05/26/foreign/PIG.HTM

Nativity plays banned
The increasing Islamification of Britain has seen nativity plays banned or pushed aside for Eid festivals – and now a south Yorkshire school with a large Muslim student population has banned its traditional Easter Bonnet parades outright.

The Meersbrook Bank Primary School in Sheffield, more famous for the forced resignation of a former headteacher after a backlash from Muslim parents objecting to her plans to scrap separate assemblies for Muslim pupils has axed its Easter bonnet parade.

Although claiming that the decision is not related to the large number of Muslim pupils, indigenous British parents have not been fooled, with one remarking to a local newspaper, “I believe it’s all connected with what’s been going on earlier in the year. Never in my life did I ever think I would be having this conversation.” http://bnp.org.uk/2009/04/easter-bonnet-parade-cancelled-as-society-becomes-islamified/

Netherlands: Mosque goers vs. Dog walkers
Visitors of the El Fath mosque in the Amersfoort neighborhood of Liendert (Netherlands) and dog walkers along the Valleikanaal, behind the prayer house, are not hitting it off. Some mosque goers are annoyed by the four-legged animals, who for many Muslims are impure, running freely The dog owners say that El Fath didn’t have permission for an entrance on the footpath. Most don’t plan to leash their dogs. Local party BPA brought the issue up to the city council. Pico, a Spanish dog, is one his mistress knows can run free. But visitors of the El Fath mosque prefer that Ineke Simonis leash her dog. They prefer that he doesn’t come close to them. Certainly not just after a prayer service, after they’ve just purified their souls. A dog is after all an impure animal for Muslims.

Ineke, just like other dog walkers along the Valleikanaal, had already exchanged words a few times with mosque goes who leave through the back of the prayer house. “And it’s not friendly then. They scream at me that my dog may not run freely here. Than I shout back that they’re wrong.” http://islamineurope.blogspot.com/2009/04/netherlands-mosque-goers-vs-dog-walkers.html

UK: shopping center Santa banned — in case he offends non-Christians
The dhimmization of Britain is happening so fast I can barely keep up with it. A three million dollar mosque for Muslim prison inmates, controversy over the naming of a school after a saint, and now this, from The Sun, with thanks to the Dulwich Dynamo:

BOSSES have banned Santa from a shopping centre – in case he offends non-Christians.

The Scrooges struck at Birmingham’s famous Bullring.

A spokeswoman said: “We wish to be sensitive to people of other religions over the festive period. There are a lot of people in the region who are not Christians and do not celebrate Christmas.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2004/11/uk-shopping-center-santa-banned-in-case-he-offends-non-christians.html

Alcohol sales to kuffars offensive to Muslims
More than 150 people have signed petitions imploring Luton Borough Council to deny the new Tesco Express in Bury Park an alcohol licence. The bid from the supermarket giant has upset Muslims living in the area, some of whom say they find the idea of alcohol being sold offensive. http://www.bedfordtoday.co.uk/541/Muslims-oppose-Tesco-booze-bid.4517977.jp

Muslims threaten to vandalise pig statue
A historic statue of a wild boar is unlikely to return to Derby’s Arboretum, because it could offend Muslims living nearby. The Florentine Boar stood in the Derby park from 1840 to 1942, when it was beheaded by flying masonry during an air raid. Derby City Council had hoped to replace the statue with an identical replica when plans for a massive overhaul of the park were first considered a decade ago. But following reservations raised by some people in Normanton about a new boar statue, the authority decided to consult with local community leaders.

At a meeting of the council’s minority ethnic communities advisory committee it was recommended that the boar be replaced with something else because of the strength of feeling among nearby residents as pigs are perceived as offensive creatures by many Muslims. Derwent Ward councillor Suman Gupta said, “If the statue of the boar is put back at the Arboretum I have been told that it will not be there the next day, or at least it won’t be in the same condition the next day at least. We should not have the boar because it is offensive to some of the groups in the immediate area.” http://www.derbygripe.co.uk/arbor.htm

KNOXVILLE: MUSLIMS SEEK TO STOP RESTAURANT THAT SELLS BEER
“I want to feed the community. We are providing a service to the Fort Sanders community and we have a good blue plate, a good cheap lunch and dinner,” Infidel Trevor Hill

Islam imposes its law on Main street, USA. This is what I mean when I say “imposing their Islam” and “Islamic supremacism”. Their law does not supersede ours. They are not a special class. We Americans do not have to change our ways, our lives, our laws to bow and submit to Islamic law. What part of the Constitution do these Muslims not understand?

I strongly recommend that my readers in and around Knoxville, Tennessee, get involved in this issue and get involved now. Just say no to Islamic supremacism. And yes, there are jobs involved in this economic free fall ………but that is not the key issue here, as critical as that is. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/03/knoxville-muslims-seek-to-stop-restaurant-that-sells-.html

Christians resist Moslem world domination
FOUR Christian churches have joined in an unprecedented attack on the Islamic faith in an attempt to stop a Muslim school being built. Calling the religion an ideology driven by world domination, a submission to the Land and Environment Court yesterday said a proposed school at Camden was a “beachhead” in Islamic takeover of southwestern Sydney, threatening the Australian way of life. The attack, co-signed by local heads of Baptist, Anglican, Presbyterian and the Evangelical Sisters of Mary churches, formed the spearhead of Camden City Council’s defence to a court challenge over its rejection of a development application for the Muslim school.

“Islam is not simply a private religion. It is driven by a powerful political agenda, it is an ideology with a plan for world domination,” the letter said. “The Quranic Society application to establish an Islamic school in Camden is typical of a regularly repeated pattern to form a beachhead in an area for the development of a sub-culture which, for the most part, regards its own legal system as superior to the current Australian law.” http://www.news.com.au/national/churches-unite-against-islamic-school/story-e6frfkvr-1225701513720

An act of dominance and aggression
“LONDON (Reuters Life!) – A battle of faiths is being waged in the ancient English city of Oxford, where some people are bitterly opposed to Muslim plans to broadcast the call to prayer over the fabled dreaming spires.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/02/fitzgerald-an-act-of-dominance-and-aggression.html

Screeching and wailing over Buddhist holy site
The mussein’s call to prayer for the faithful of Islam, here in this most sacred location to all of Buddhism, ripped me back to modern reality. I was stunned! How could this be? Here in one of the most significant spots of Buddhism, loud speakers come on at four in the morning every day, to shock and intrude upon meditators and Buddhist practitioners using this spot for that which it has to offer in its most special way? How could this be allowed? It is…

The Muslim call to prayer seemed to go on and on…..20 minutes to a half-hour later, the scratchy recording thankfully ended and quiet returned. My concentration was thoroughly blown. Instead of following my breath, I found myself looking at the great distraction and paradox I had just experienced. I thought about Mecca!

Could any other religion intrude itself there in the holiest of places to Islam, as the tenets of Islam had so intruded itself here in the holiest place of Buddhism? http://97.74.65.51/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=26040

Flight 93 memorial a heap of of shi’ite
Tom Burnett Sr. is publicly backing Alec Rawls’s claim that the planned Flight 93 Memorial is riddled with Islamic and terrorist memorializing elements. Mr. Burnett is refusing to allow Tom Jr.’s name to be used in the memorial, and is calling for a Congressional investigation.

Alec’s latest post shows how easy it is to verify the factual accuracy of his claims: the Mecca-orientation of the giant crescent, the 44 glass blocks on the flight path (matching the number of passengers, crew, and terrorists), the placement of the 9/11 date in the exact position of the star on an Islamic crescent and Star flag, and more. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2007/08/tom-burnett-sr-denounces-flight-93-memorial-calls-for-congressional-investigation.html

Swimmers are told to wear burkinis
British swimming pools are imposing Muslim dress codes in a move described as divisive by Labour MPs. Under the rules, swimmers – including non-Muslims – are barred from entering the pool in normal swimming attire. Instead they are told that they must comply with the “modest” code of dress required by Islamic custom, with women covered from the neck to the ankles and men, who swim separately, covered from the navel to the knees. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/6034706/Swimmers-are-told-to-wear-burkinis.html

British libraries to put Koran on top shelf, at Muslims’ request
And I use the word “request” very loosely indeed. In case you were worried that that de facto fatwa they imposed by banishing Geert Wilders is part of a trend, the answer is yes.
Muslims have complained of finding the Koran on lower shelves, saying it should be put above commonplace things. So officials have responded with guidance, backed by ministers, that all holy books should be treated equally and go on the top shelf together…
The report said the city’s librarians consulted the Federation of Muslim Organisations and were advised that all religious texts should be kept on the top shelf. ‘This meant that no offence is caused, as the scriptures of all the major faiths are given respect in this way, but none is higher than any other,’ the guidance added…

Inayat Bunglawala, of the Engage think tank, which encourages Muslims to play a greater role in public life, said: ‘If Muslims wish to see the Koran placed on a higher shelf, and library rules say it should be there, then that is a welcome and considerate gesture. ‘But one size does not fit all. If Christians do not want to see the Bible treated in the same way, I do not see why it has to be dealt with the same.’

Sound familiar? Borders caved on exactly this point a few years ago, reserving pride of place for the Koran on the top shelf of their stores lest they get a taste of what Wilders has to live with every day from his Islamic “critics.” It’s a cowardly policy but somewhat understandable in the case of a private corporation; in the case of a state with armies at its disposal, not so much. Bizarrely, the main objection from Christians interviewed for the story isn’t that the Koran’s getting special treatment, it’s that sticking the Bible way up top will make it less accessible to library-goers looking for a copy. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/02/17/british-libraries-to-put-koran-on-top-shelf-at-muslims-request/

Warning to Muslims who believe that the public space can be invaded without consequences.
Ligue de Défense Française (LDF) November 20, 2010

Posted on 21 November 2010 21:59:01 by La Lydia

“Warning to Muslims who believe that the public space can be invaded without consequences. For a number of years, certain of you muslim gentlemen dare to regularly occupy the public space for your prayers. This occupation, as you well know, is illegal, and is, as we well know, a provocation and a demonstration of force designed to show your domination in certain parts of France and your contempt for our laws and the secular nature of our country.

These politico-cultural demonstrations are in defiance of our institutions and our culture, they put our territorial integrity under pressure with the aim of forcing the construction of mosques, which are often financed by the money of non-muslims who then find themselves victims of gigantic rackets in which our elected officials are complicit.

Muslim militias and certain muslims totally illegally block the streets to non-muslims, preventing the citizens and residents from circulating, returning home or leaving their houses and the mayors say nothing, the police say nothing, the State says nothing.

Thus it remains for the French Nation, to the citizens themselves to take over because all their representatives have spinelessly bent over in the face of intimidation. The message sent out by the French nation to the “praying” is clear:

Stop praying immediately on the public highway, it is illegal. Pray elsewhere, or don’t pray, we couldn’t care less…Nothing gives you the right to occupy our streets, you must respect our laws.

You are extremely lucky that the French (of all confessions and origins) are so patient and indulgent with you but in the face of your arrogant provocations, one day the limit will be reached.

Then there will no longer be time to whine about discrimination. You will have been the sole cause of your inevitable future troubles if you continue to defy our laws. Who sows the wind reaps the storm. Stop sowing discord in France, stop occupying our streets and our towns with your inopportune prayers.”

Ground Zero Victory Mosque as Domination of Public Space
A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory
by Wafa Sultan May 19, 2010 at 5:00 am

A new mosque is now being planned in New York near “Ground Zero,” two blocks from where the World Trade Center used to be. This mosque is headed by an Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, who proposes to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place into an Islamic Cultural Center which would contain a mosque.

It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.

On a daily bases, in so many parts of the world, deadly attacks are perpetrated by Jihadists either against non Muslims or, frequently, against Muslims — especially Muslim women. The terror type of Jihad, however, is only one way for Islamists to accomplish their mission of making the “Kafir,” or infidels, submit to Sharia Law. Another method is, as the author Robert Spencer calls it, an insidious, creeping “Stealth Jihad.”

While Mr. Shahzad is the impatient Jihadist who attempts to destroy the West through terror, there is also the second type of Jihadist, who is much more patient, and who employs the “Stealth Jihad.” The Stealth Jihadis are subtle in their approach and take their time to accomplish the same objective of submitting us all under Islam and under Sharia Law. http://www.hudson-ny.org/1200/mosque-at-ground-zero-equals-victory

Anti Immigration Sentiment Soars in Britain

In last year’s general election in Britain, both the Conservatives and Labour addressed the issue of immigration and the popular feeling that uncontrolled immigration had caused problems for Britain. However, due to Britain’s electoral system, no party with an explicit anti-immigration agenda such as the British National Party or the United Kingdom Independence Party managed to make it into Parliament.

This contrasts with results in Holland and Sweden where the Freedom Party and the Swedish Democrats made major breakthroughs. In France, the National Front polls at 20%.

Now, a poll conducted in Britain for the left-wing Searchlight Educational Trust finds that 48% of voters would consider voting for a party that would tackle immigration and Islamic extremism provided it steered clear of violence and “fascist imagery”. 52% said that Muslims cause problems in the United Kingdom.

The poll found that two thirds of white Britons felt that immigration had made a negative contribution. They were joined by 43% of Asian Britons and 17% of black Britons. According to the poll, a strong correlation existed between economic insecurity and hostility to immigration. The results were slightly skewed by older pro-conservative voters whom the pollsters called cultural integrationists. Another interesting result is that more nonwhites than whites favor freezing immigration on till the economic situation improves.

While the full report will only be published on the web Monday night, it has already been embraced by the British left to attack the government of David Cameron and former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair, whom the left considers a traitor.

David Cameron is attacked for his recent speech denouncing multiculturalism and calling for a muscular liberalism that would spell out more clearly what values are acceptable and what are inacceptable. Critics from the left condemn the Cameron speech for legitimizing the sentiments expressed in the poll. The Left and its journalistic mouthpieces, such as the Guardian and the Daily Mirror, also claim that the government’s current austerity policy is causing layoffs and lowering the standard of living. This is increasing economic insecurity and therefore fueling the dangerous attitudes surfacing in the poll.

Tony Blair is attacked for his “New Labour” approach that essentially jettisons politics based on class and therefore made working class Britons feel that they had been abandoned. If politics are not based on class, then the substitute is the identity-based politics expressed by the respondents to the poll.

While the survey was conducted by the well-regarded Populus polling organization, some critics are uneasy about questions that are too vague to permit conclusions. Another obvious criticism is that the poll is self-serving. Searchlight advertises itself as an organization that combats fascism by educational work. Obviously the more alarming the attitude towards immigrants is, the greater the need to fund the organization.

Immigration And Asylum Seekers In Calais - wanting to be in the UK

Shock poll shows rising tide of right-wing nationalism

Almost half the country would back a new right-wing party that vowed to crack down on immigration and Islamic extremists, a shock poll reveals today.

They would also restrict the ­building of mosques and order the flag of St George or the Union Jack be flown on all public buildings.

The revelations will spark fresh fears of racial tension in Britain amid a new wave of support for right-wing parties like the British National Party and the English Defence League.

Findings of the survey, the largest of its kind and involving 5,054 people, are in a major report called Fear and Hope – the New Politics of Identity, which examines views on race, ­immigration and multi-culturalism. Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband and campaigning left-wing MP Jon Cruddas will officially unveil the report, produced for the ­Searchlight Education Trust, tomorrow.

In one of the most revealing ­questions, pollsters Populus asked people if they would back a party that “wants to defend the English, create an English parliament, control immigration and challenge Islamic extremism”.

A total of 48 per cent said they would either “definitely support” or ­“consider supporting” a party with such an agenda, if it shunned violence and fascist imagery.

The results will alarm both PM David Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband, who are worried about the rise of right-wing extremists.

In the 12 months to last ­September, 238,950 migrants were allowed into Britain, the highest figure since records began. Sixty per cent of people thought immigration had been “a bad thing” for England, against 40 per cent who said it had been “good”.

Thirty-four per cent said ­immigration should be stopped permanently or until the economy improved. The report also found opposition comes from all races, not just “white Britons”. And 52 per cent of Britons agree that “Muslims ­create problems in the UK”.

Searchlight director Nick Lowles said: “The harsh truth is we are in danger of losing touch with the public on race, immigration and multi-cultural­ism.”

Census forms are printed in 57 languages (…including Tagalog, Igbo and Shona)

'Bureaucratic': Census forms have been translated into 57 languages

Census forms will be printed in 57 languages – more than double the number a decade ago.

Taxpayers’ money will be spent translating it into languages used by only a few thousand people in Britain – including Tagalog, Igbo, Tigrinya, Shona and Pashto, it was revealed.

Printing the forms with all the different translations will cost an estimated £50,000 – and the move has been branded ‘time-consuming and bureaucratic’ by critics.

Prime Minister David Cameron had pledged to cut spending on translations to encourage people to learn English.

Hotlines will also be set up to help citizens fill out the forms in the census which is going to cost £482million.

The paperwork will even be translated into Swedish and Dutch – even though almost all the native speakers in Britain are good at English, The Sun revealed.

Seven translations will be produced for different Indian languages.

Charlotte Linacre, Campaign Manager at the TaxPayers’ Alliance said: ‘There is not an endless pot of taxpayers’ money to pay for more administration and documents to be translated in to scores of different languages.

‘There is a huge cost for so much bureaucracy and time spent translating the forms, it’s important that data is collected effectively but it’s crucial that people who come to live and work in the UK are learning English so they can integrate.

‘The Government needs to stop spending so much money on translation across the public sector, in order to relieve taxpayers of this burden.’

Languages like Igbo and Shona are spoken by millions of people round the world – although there are only believed to be a few thousand native speakers living in Britain.

Tagalog – or Filipino – is spoken by an estimated 74,000 people in the UK, there are 5,000 Tigrinya speakers and 100,000 who speak Pashto.

The forms are to be sent out to 22million homes this year.

A spokesman for Downing Street said the Labour government had decided to print the form in so many languages and it could not be reversed.

Promotion of the census costing nearly £7million will include television advertising in nine languages and dialects – Cantonese and Mandarin from China, and Gujarati, Punjabi, Urdu, Tamil, Bengali, Sylheti and Hindu from the Indian subcontinent.

Even one-person households will have to contend with 57 questions and 393 tick boxes.

A couple with four children face 272 questions and 918 tick boxes, with more to cope with if they have visitors on the census night of March 27.

People can expect to be asked how many bedrooms, bathrooms, cupboards and conservatories they have, and what central heating they use.

A question on religious belief is voluntary, but detailed information on ethnicity, colour and language spoken is not.

Record rise in immigration as 240,000 given right to stay in just one year

A warm welcome: Non-EU migration to the UK is almost at record levels

Labour’s ‘shambolic’ stewardship of the immigration system was exposed last night by figures showing that almost a quarter of a million migrants were handed the right to stay in Britain last year.

Grants of settlement, which are one step short of a passport, rose 35 per cent to 238,950 in the year to September 2010 – the highest since records began in 1960.

The total includes tens of thousands given full access to Britain’s public services because of the catastrophic failure to deal with their asylum cases swiftly.

Official figures also showed migration added 226,000 to the country’s population in 2010. This net migration figure – the number of arrivals minus those departing – is more than double the level that would be needed if ministers are to fulfil their pledge to reduce the annual net total to ‘tens of thousands’ by 2015.

Among the arrivals were spiralling numbers of students. Study visas issued in Labour’s last year were up by 41 per cent. The Office for National Statistics stated: ‘Long-term immigration to the UK for formal study has trebled over the last decade.’

The backlog of more than 400,000 asylum cases was uncovered more than five years ago and only now are many finally being resolved. Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the MigrationWatch think-tank, said the settlement figures were ‘appalling’.

‘This is what Labour called “managed migration”. It would be hard to imagine a more shambolic inheritance,’ he said.

‘Around one in three of those granted settlement were failed asylum seekers who had been hanging around so long that they acquired a human rights case to stay.’

The ONS confirmed that the foreign-born population rose by 3.2million during Labour’s 13 years in power, as reported in the Mail this week.

Sir Andrew said: ‘These figures are Labour’s legacy to Britain – 3.2million immigrants, including a quarter of a million in their last year alone.

‘Over half a million students in one year with no interviews before arrival and no checks on departure, and a “points-based system” that has increased immigration, not reduced it.’

Immigration Minister Damian Green said that the figures reinforced the need for radical reforms of the immigration system.

Labour ‘let in 3 million immigrants’

More than three million migrants came to Britain under the previous Labour government, campaigners have claimed.

Migration Watch UK said official figures to be released on Thursday will show for the first time that net migration since Labour came to power in 1997 topped the three million mark.

Sir Andrew Green, the think-tank’s chairman, said: “The sheer scale of what has occurred is changing Britain fundamentally and irrevocably and in ways the majority of the population did not ask for, were not consulted about and did not wish to see.”

Describing immigration policy as “Labour’s great betrayal”, Sir Andrew said the introduction of 3.2 million people – three times the population of Birmingham – was increasing the pressure on “roads, railways, housing, infrastructure, the environment, schools, hospitals and the general quality of life”.

He added: “The present Government will have to stick to their guns if they are to clear up the shambles they inherited and get a grip of developments that could otherwise fundamentally change the whole nature of our society.”

Immigration Minister Damian Green said: “Unlimited migration has placed unacceptable pressure on our public services over the years.

“That is why we are currently carrying out major reform of the system to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands.

“We have already introduced an annual limit to the number of economic visas from outside the UK alongside new proposals to reform other routes of entry including student, marriage and settlement visas which have in the past been subject to widespread abuse.”

Another failed UK Government Agency puts British citizens in danger of terrorist attacks.

Border Agency ‘puts profits first’

Hundreds of migrant workers are left living in the UK illegally as the UK Border Agency puts profits before securing the country’s borders, an independent watchdog has said.

John Vine, the independent chief inspector of the UKBA, said  the perception among staff was that the agency’s emphasis “was always on income-generating work first”.

Controlling immigration and the quality of decisions over cases were not as much of a priority as generating income and providing customer service, many staff said.


Limited resources and the lower priority of curtailment actions compared with other work which generated more income were both blamed.


Mr Vine called for the agency to act promptly to return those living in the UK illegally.

“If people no longer qualify to stay in the UK according to their visa conditions, then they must be required to leave the country,” he said.

In October 2009 Ministers came under attack for more border control chaos after the Home Office admitted losing track of over 40,000 illegal immigrants.

A senior official conceded that tens of thousands of migrants who should have left the country more than six years ago could still be here.
A trawl of files has uncovered “no ­formal record” of any of the illegals leaving the UK.
The lapse was revealed in a letter to the Commons home affairs committee from UK Border Agency chief executive Lin Homer.
She admitted that files dating from before 2003 showed people who had failed to leave after their visas expired or had been refused permission to stay.
Police records are now being examined to see if any of them are potentially “harmful” to the public.  
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the population think tank Migrationwatch, described the revelation as “Yet another skeleton in the Home Office cupboard.” He said: “This is symptomatic of the utter chaos in the asylum and immigration system during the past 10 years. Nobody in the private sector would get away with such a performance.”
This is yet another example how are Government is soley interested in making money instead of honouring its pledge to protect UK citizens at all times.

We have people roaming around this country illegally and no doubt some of them will fall into the hands of the militants.

How long will it be before our leadership realize that we have many inadequate babbons in our own Government putting our citizens in danger, we need to take the fight to them too.

Our fight against Militant Islam is NOT our only fight.
