Why try to take baby from EDL mother but not from ‘terrorists’?

UK News :: Why try to take baby from EDL mother but not from ‘terrorists’?


SOCIAL workers want to seize a baby as soon as it is born because they are concerned about the mother’s violent links to the English Defence League.
Durham County Council has told Toni McLeod she would pose a “risk of ­significant harm” to the baby. Social workers fear the child would become radicalised with EDL views and want it put up for adoption immediately.
Mrs McLeod, who is 35 weeks pregnant, is a former leading member of the EDL, in which she was notorious as “English Angel”. The 25-year-old has a string of convictions for violence, including butting and biting a police officer after an EDL march in 2010 and she has been banned from owning dogs after setting a pit bull on a former partner.
However, her cause has been taken up by Lib Dem MP John Hemming who, despite his loathing for the EDL, raised it in the Commons. He contrasts her treatment with that of the extremist Islamic cleric Abu Qatada, who was allowed to remain with his ­children when he was briefly remanded on bail earlier this year as the Government tries to deport him.
He said: “It raises a curious question as to why Abu Qatada is allowed to radicalise his children but the state won’t take the chance of allowing Toni McLeod to look after her baby in case she says something social workers won’t like.
“I am very strongly opposed to the EDL, which I believe to be a racist organisation, but I do not think we should remove all of the children of the people who go on their demonstrations, however misguided they may be.”
Mrs McLeod has posted racist abuse on social networking sites but denies being racist. She claims she is no longer active with the EDL and has never been charged with violence against children.
Social workers have told her husband Martyn he would be unable to care for his child because he is a full-time soldier just back from Afghanistan.

Mr Hemming, who chairs the Justice For Families campaign group, said yesterday: “This case is one where the ‘thought police’ have decided to remove her baby at birth because of what she might say to the baby. I wonder what the baby’s father is thinking when he fights for a country which won’t allow him to have a child because of what the child’s mother might say.
“Toni now accepts she was wrong to have gone on EDL demonstrations but freedom of speech means nothing if people are not allowed to say things that are thought to be wrong.”
Mrs McLeod wants to move to ­Ireland for the birth to avoid England’s social services. Rifleman McLeod, 31, plans to request a transfer to Northern Ireland so he can be with his child.
Durham County Council told Mrs McLeod on Friday her unborn baby was being placed on its child protection register. Last month, a judge ruled that her three other children, who have different fathers, should be permanently removed from her care.
The Sunday Express is unable to give details of the judge’s explanation for legal reasons.
Documents seen by the Sunday Express reveal social workers are worried about Mrs McLeod’s previous alcohol and drug misuse, her “aggressive behaviour” and her alleged “mental health issues” 
They concede she is no longer involved with the EDL but believe she is now involved with a splinter group, the North West Infidels. The social worker’s report states: “Toni clearly needs to break away from the inappropriate friendships she has through either the EDL or break-off group in order that she can model and display appropriate positive relationships to the baby as he/she grows and develops.
“Toni has been a prominent member of the EDL. They claim they are a peaceful group, however, they have strong associations with violence and racism.”
Mr McLeod said: “Toni would never harm a child.”
The council said it was unable to comment.

Do you know these men? Police release pictures of gang who attacked students on 142 bus in Withington

Do you know these men? Police release pictures of gang who attacked students on 142 bus in Withington | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Police have released CCTV images of a gang who viciously beat two students as they travelled on the top deck of a bus. The two men, both students, were set upon as they travelled on the 142 bus through Withington. Police believe at least one of the attackers was also a university student – and have been working with campus bosses to track them down. They have now released pictures of three attackers, all Asian men in their 20s, believed to be behind the attack. The incident happened in early hours of January 11, this year. The two victims and a friend fell into a conversation with a group of five Asian men on the late night service. But three of the men launched an unprovoked attack on the group, punching and kicking one of the victims as he lay helpless on the ground. One 22-year-old student suffered a cut on his eye and required surgery. His friend, 21, sustained a bloody nose. Det Con Dominic Heslop, investigating, said: “We believe at least one of the offenders is a student at the Manchester Metropolitan University, based on conversations between the two groups. “Although it has been several months since this incident, both victims were badly affected by what happened and our inquiries will continue until we have identified all those involved. “I also want to stress that of the five involved, we believe two played no part in actually physically assaulting either victims, and in fact witnesses have told us that one of the group was overheard saying: ‘I told you not to do it’. “I want to appeal to that person or person in the group directly: If you were involved in the assaults and tried to talk your friends out of it, then you need to come forward and speak to us.”


Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 4221 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Dewsbury: Teen badly hurt in 'racist' attack

Dewsbury: Teen badly hurt in 'racist' attack | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A TEENAGE boy was knocked unconscious with a house brick, stabbed with a screwdriver and left for dead in a vicious race attack.Joseph Haigh, 14, was savagely beaten by the gang of up to 15 Asian youths in Thornhill on Friday night.


The gang hurled racist abuse at him, constantly referring to the colour of his skin, yet police refused to classify the attack as racially-motivated.Josephs dad Jonathan, 42, of Thornhill, said: It was a racist attack.They were calling him white trash and white this, that and the other. This is why people are angry about what is happening in this country. If it had been an attack by whites on an Asian lad it would have been a definite race attack. When its the other way round they dont want to know. Joseph was out with his friends at around 9pm on Friday near Thornhills Rectory Park when the gang of Asians, said to be aged 18-20, came at them. Josephs friends scattered and Joseph tried to make off on his bike, only to be confronted by one of the thugs who smashed him in the head with half a brick.

Mr Haigh, a lorry driver, told how that blow knocked his son unconscious and he instinctively put his hands over his face to protect himself. Another youth lunged at him with a screwdriver while others kicked and punched him about the head.Mr Haigh said: They went to stab him in the face and it was only because he had his hands up that they missed. He was stabbed in one hand, his other hand was broken and a cut on his forehead was down to the bone. If they had hit him a bit harder with the house brick they could have killed him. They just left him for dead. Josephs teeth were also badly damaged and he may lose a tooth. His teeth were wired and he needed specialist treatment at the trauma unit at Leeds General Infirmary.

One of Josephs friends raised the alarm and when Mr Haigh arrived his son was laid out in a bus shelter covered in blood. Josephs bike was also missing and was believed to have been stolen by the gang.Joseph was off school all week and tensions were said to be running high at Thornhill Community Science College. Its shocking whats happened, said Mr Haigh. I have lived in Thornhill all my life and there were fights between whites and Asians 20 years ago. But this wasnt braying someone and giving them a black eye, it was a vicious attack. You dont go out with a house brick and a screwdriver if youre not going to seriously hurt someone. Mr Haigh, who has a wife Stacey, 40, and another son James, 19, said he wanted out of Dewsbury. It used to be a good, thriving town but Dewsbury has got nothing to offer us anymore. A police spokesman said the initial police report had not classified the attack as racially-motivated but inquiries were continuing.

Insp Jenny Thompson, of Dewsbury police, said: This was a vicious, unprovoked attack on a young boy which left him with some serious injuries. This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated within Dewsbury and we will be focusing extra patrols around the area as part of on-going work.


The CID department are currently following some positive lines of inquiry. However I would still appeal for any witnesses or anyone with information to contact Dewsbury CID on 01924 431085 or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.

Rochdale News: Outrage at Hussain 'promotion'

Rochdale News: Outrage at Hussain 'promotion' | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

The news that Labour councillor Aftab Hussain has been 'promoted' to Chairman of the Pennines Township Committee has been unpopular amongst the people of Rochdale.

Hussain gave a positive character reference for Abdul Qayyum, who was later convicted of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Both Hussain and former mayor Zulfiquar Ali, who stepped down, appeared as character witnesses for Qayyum.

Ali has since called his decision as a “silly mistake”. Hussain, however, remains in his role as a Labour councillor in the Firgrove and Smallbridge ward, and is now chariman of a Township committee.

When asked their thoughts on Hussain’s position, the people of Rochdale were unanimous. A Harris, who works in the town centre, said: “It’s just Rochdale all over, it’s an absolute joke. He should have been sacked, never mind standing down. It infuriates me.”

Richard Brockley said: “I don’t think he should have kept his job, and I don’t think he should be earning any more either. I think it’d be the same though in any other town.”

A resident who did not want to be named said: “He should have been out of the job the moment he wrote the letter. This town only protects certain people, and we can’t do anything about it. Have the police just turned a blind eye?”

One of the integral roles of a councillor is that of a corporate parent, a role that gives responsibility to all councillors for the welfare of the town’s children.

Jean Ashworth is an ex-councillor. She said: “Corporate parenting is one of the most important roles a councillor undertakes. It involves protecting, supporting and being there for all vulnerable children.

“Councillor Hussain should have known better than to support a suspect. Is an apology enough? At the end of the day the man was convicted – Hussain has gone against this poor girl.”

White working-class boys are consigned to education scrapheap, Ofsted warns

White working-class boys are consigned to education scrapheap, Ofsted warns | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Chief inspector of schools Sir Michael Wilshaw says generations of children are doomed to underachieve, because of an erosion of traditional community values and parents failing to set boundaries.


Boys from white working-class families are growing up with no hope of a decent education or career because of an ‘anti-school culture’, the head of Ofsted warned last night.
Sir Michael Wilshaw says generations of children in deprived areas are doomed to underachieve, thanks to an erosion of traditional community values and parents failing to set boundaries.
The chief inspector of schools said white boys from poor families were worst affected and achieved the worst results aged 16 at school.
Old-fashioned support for education was disappearing in many communities, particularly those in post-industrial cities with high unemployment levels, he said. Teachers in these areas are increasingly forced into the role of ‘surrogate parents’.
Where families fail to provide support, teachers are forced to help with homework, give advice and in some cases even provide meals in place of parents ‘who can’t or won’t support their children’.
Sir Michael’s remarks come as Ofsted opens a new inquiry into the disparity between rich and poor pupils in the state school system.

The former head of Mossbourne Community Academy in Hackney, East London, is to give a major speech to the National College for School Leadership in Birmingham today.
A ground-breaking study by Ofsted, Access and Achievement in Urban Education, raised the issue 20 years ago and a further report was published in 2003.
Sir Michael said: ‘We still have this long tail of under-performance in our state education system and we’re not closing the gap between the best and the worst, the richest and the poorest.
‘We still have failure which largely resides in the poorest communities.’ He told the Daily Telegraph: ‘Schools in these areas have to counter generations of failure and a culture which is often anti-school and anti-learning. We must show how that is tackled.’

Children who qualify for free school meals lag behind fellow pupils throughout the school system. Just one in three of these attained five good GCSEs including English and maths last year, compared with 62 per cent of other children.
White British boys who qualify for free school meals achieve the worst results of any apart from gypsy and traveller children – with just 29 per cent getting good marks.
Sir Michael said the report would tackle academic failure in white working-class boys as a ‘big issue’. In many working class communities, entire families were out of work following the demise of traditional industries, he said.
He added: ‘We need to look back as well as forward. Working-class communities in the past valued education, with that spirit of working men’s institutes and technical colleges and so on.
‘Those communities thought long and hard about the future of their children and supported schools and were very much into self-help. We need to bring that back.’
Last month the Ofsted head called for a ban on mobile phones in schools. Sir Michael said a new inspection regime to come into force next term, will penalise schools for failing to tackle persistent low-level disruption in lessons.

Paul Weston on the Indigenous British

Paul Weston on the Indigenous British | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

"The indigenous British are set to become a minority, in our own homeland, within the space of just two generations. Now, I think this deliberate dilution of an ancient and native race of people is one of the greatest racial crimes against humanity that's ever been committed. And the liberal left promoters of mass immigration are therefore anti-white racists and extremists. Resisting their warped ideology of incremental genocide is not right-wing or extremist. It's politically central, and it's basic common sense."

Off-duty taxi driver who assaulted woman in cab spared jail

Off-duty taxi driver who assaulted woman in cab spared jail | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

AN OFF-duty taxi driver who sexually assaulted a woman in his cab after picking her up in the street has been spared jail.

Former Welly Club doorman Masoud Rahimi preyed on the 20-year-old as she walked along Ferensway, Hull city centre, from the nightclub.

Masoud Rahimi was given a suspended sentence.
He sexually assaulted her, making inappropriate remarks and stroking her leg after she got into the front passenger seat.

A jury at Hull Crown Court took five hours to unanimously convict him of sexual assault.

Judge James Sampson, sitting at Nottingham Crown Court, has sentenced Rahimi to six months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years. He was given a three-month curfew from 8pm to 6am and was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for seven years.

Rahimi, 37, was caught after CCTV footage showed him pulling up in front of the woman in his blue Nissan Primera and offering his services for hire, which he was prevented from doing by his private hire licence.

The court heard Rahimi, of Berkshire Street, east Hull, told the woman she was “beautiful” before assaulting her.

The victim had told the court: “I saw what I thought was a taxi pull up and I went over to it and asked to be taken home.

“I gave my address to the driver, my feet were hurting and it was the easy option.

“He placed his left hand on my leg and asked if I was cold. He kept his hand there and rubbed my leg from the ankle to the thigh. He asked if I shaved and said he could tell I did. I was shocked but kept quiet.”

Despite her request to be taken to east Hull, Rahimi took her to west Hull and ended up in Asda petrol station in Hessle Road.

Once there, the girl escaped from his cab and ran for help.

She said: “I wanted to get out. Once he stopped at the petrol station, I took my seatbelt off and ran as fast as I could.”

She rang her friend for help and reported the incident to the police the next morning.

Iranian-born Rahimi, who has lived in Hull for eight years, denied it was him until the CCTV footage was shown to him, showing the girl fleeing from his car as he put petrol in.

Rahimi was in his private hire cab at the time of the assault at 3.30am on May 6 but was not working at the time.

Rahimi, who volunteers as an interpreter at the Hull Asylum Seeker Support Group, has worked as a door supervisor for three years and had been working for a private hire firm at the time.

Private hire vehicles are banned from picking up fares that have not been booked.

Estate homes and vehicles damaged in Muslim gang street battles…

Estate homes and vehicles damaged in Muslim gang street battles… | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A TEENAGER was arrested after violent clashes between youths on Dewsbury’s Pilgrim Estate last weekend.
Homes and vehicles were attacked on Saturday evening and early Sunday morning in what residents described as street battles between rival Asian gangs from different areas of the town.

Trouble flared on Pilgrim Crescent, Burgh Mill Lane and Ravenshouse Road, with house and car windows smashed and other property damaged.

One resident, who didn’t want to be named, said: “This was gang warfare, it wasn’t a minor skirmish.

“I was woken about 1.30am by what sounded like the roar of a football crowd outside.

“There were two gangs of young men attacking each other – I think some had come up from Ravensthorpe to cause trouble.”

Police patrols have been increased since the weekend in a move designed to reassure the public and deter any more violence.

A police spokesman said: “Officers were called at 11.21pm on Saturday evening after reports of a large group of men fighting on Burgh Mill Lane in Dewsbury.

“This was also reported at the bottom of Ravenshouse Road.

“Three cars had been damaged along with windows at an address on Burgh Mill Lane.

“A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of damage and has been charged.

“The local NPT have been providing extra patrols in the area to provide reassurance.”

Muslim mother of 8 drugged and kidnapped her daughter because she wouldn't marry her cousin

Muslim mother of 8 drugged and kidnapped her daughter because she wouldn't marry her cousin | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Shamin Akhtar of Bradford, West Yorkshire, was unanimously found guilty by a jury at Preston Crown Court
Detectives have described the mother-of-eight’s crime ‘as every child’s worst nightmare’
Victim was persuaded to have some warm milk, which made her feel dizzy and made her sick
Father and sister were both cleared – outside court the victim’s father Mohammed Khan said: ‘I miss my daughter’
A Muslim mother faces a lengthy prison sentence after being convicted of drugging and kidnapping her own daughter when she broke off an arranged marriage and secretly married another man.

Shamim Akhtar, 59, plotted with close relatives to abduct her youngest daughter, Naila Afsar, 25, after she refused to marry her first cousin and ran away to marry her lover, Afsar Saddiq.

When her family discovered what she had done they threatened to kill her, before giving her a drink laced with a prescription sedative and driving her back to the family home.

Shamin Akhtar was unanimously found guilty by a jury after a four week trial at Preston Crown Court and her son Shamrez Khan, 34, and her son-in-law Zahid Mahmood also pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, kidnap and two counts of administering a drug with intent

Preston Crown Court was told that the family took Mr Saddiq’s mobile phone so he could not contact his bride and told him she would not be returning.
But the plot fell apart when Mr Saddiq dialled 999. Police stopped the Akhtars’ family car at a petrol station. They discovered Mrs Afsar drowsy on the back seat and she was taken to hospital.

Following a four week trial, mother-of-eight Akhtar, of Bradford, was found guilty of false imprisonment, kidnap and two counts of administering a drug with intent to commit an indictable offence.

Her son Shamrez Khan, 34, also of Bradford, and her son-in-law Zahid Mahmood, 37, of Accrington, Lancashire, admitted the same charges. All three were remanded in custody pending sentence next month.

Mrs Afsar broke down in the witness box as she recounted how she discovered when she was just 15 that her parents were planning an arranged marriage between her and her cousin, Amraiz Khan, who lived in Denmark.

The victim’s father Mohammed Khan, 57, and her sister Saima Mahmood, 30, were both cleared of wrong doing by the jury

She went along with their plans and agreed to get engaged in May 2009, but soon realised she and her cousin were incompatible and called off the wedding. Jonathan Dickinson, prosecuting, said: ‘Her family was upset with her … that was, perhaps, putting it mildly.’
Mrs Afsar ran away to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where she met and married Mr Saddiq in November 2009. The couple visited her parents at their home in the hope of reconciliation shortly afterwards, but they were told to divorce.

On the morning of January 17, 2010, the newlyweds were in bed at home when they heard banging on the doors.

Khan appeared in their bedroom shouting, while his mother and brother-in-law waited downstairs. They persuaded Mrs Afsar to stay at her sister Saima’s house in Accrington for two nights, claiming that her nieces were missing her.

But after she arrived and, unbeknown to Mrs Afsar, her mother, brother and brother-in-law travelled back to Newcastle to confront Mr Saddiq.

Statement: Speaking outside Preston Crown Court the victim’s father Mohammed Khan said: ‘I miss my daughter. When I die it is my wish for my youngest daughter to be present at my funeral’

They took Mrs Afsar’s belongings, including her passport, threatened Mr Saddiq and took his mobile phone, telling him his wife would not be coming back.

On their return to Accrington, Khan slapped his sister twice across the face and took her mobile phone. Mrs Afsar told the court he was ‘going on about the family honour’.

She added: ‘I thought I was in danger of being killed. I kept begging them to take me home and leave me be.’

When she pleaded to be allowed to go back to Newcastle, Mrs Afsar’s family pretended to agree, before giving her a warm, milky drink ahead of the journey.

The liquid was laced with the prescription sedative lorazepam.

Almost immediately Mrs Afsar began to feel dizzy and sick. She told the court ‘everything became blurred and I couldn’t keep my eyes open’. She was bundled into a car bound for Bradford, but police stopped the vehicle not long into the journey, in Rossendale, Lancashire.

Mrs Afsar’s father Mohammed Khan, 57, of Bradford, and sister Saima Mahmood, 31, of Accrington, were both cleared of false imprisonment, kidnap and two charges of administering the drug lorazepam with intent.

Detective Inspector Mark Vaughton, of Lancashire Police, said Mrs Afsar had shown ‘immense courage’ to go through with the prosecution.

As a great many people from the Midlands have helped other areas, several times, we would really appreciate it if we could send a good number of patriots to help the demo at Stafford.

I must apologise in advance, as I can't be there. I'm in court in Liverpool on the same day, bringing charges against Santander bank.

Les Ingram will bring the Truth Van, with all the posters and sound system.

Let's stick together and help each other. Also, please pass the word to all trusted patriots, but NOT through Facebook. We don't want to be kettled by the Thugs-In-Uniforms (TIU).

The issue is the 30-year failure of the police, courts, politicians and media to deal with the scandal, they have all known about these issues and simply brushed it under the carpet, well no more,The British National Party will continue to demonstrate and make the nation fully aware of the gross incompetence by the powers that be over the last three decades and that they are also stained with the same blood that these vile Muslim sex monsters have on their hands.

Please let me know if you can be there. The link below shows a map of the court area.

A prophet yet an outcast

A prophet yet an outcast | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

He's still demonised for that toxic 'rivers of blood' speech. But 100 years after his birth Enoch Powell has been vindicated on a host of crucial issues

When most people hear the words ‘Enoch Powell’ they think of the phrase ‘rivers of blood’. It was Powell’s misfortune — partly self-inflicted — that his monumental contribution to political ideas should still be eclipsed by a phrase that he never uttered, misquoted from the speech that still defines him.
Powell was born 100 years ago this Saturday, in a terrace house by a railway line in a suburb of Birmingham, the only child of two teachers.
In time, he would become the most brilliant classical scholar of his generation at Cambridge, the youngest professor in the British Empire, the youngest Brigadier in the Army, an MP, a Cabinet Minister and, in his re-invention as a tribune of the people, one of the most loved and hated men in Britain.
He was, in own words, ‘born a Tory’ — by which he meant he was born with a natural reverence for the institutions of this country, notably its constitution.

Yet he would fight a war with that party that was partly responsible for it losing two general elections in 1974, because his highly intellectual view of what a Tory was, and what a Tory should believe in, was at odds with the pragmatic, centre-left doctrine of Ted Heath, whose nemesis Powell became.
Because of his famous — or notorious — speech on immigration, delivered in Birmingham in April 1968, Powell’s wider achievements have been largely ignored. He served in the Cabinet for just 15 months, but his influence on politics and political thought is greater than that of any other Member of Parliament in the past century.
It was Powell who, in 1957, predicted that excessive State borrowing would bring economic decline. Long before Milton Friedman, the free-market champion who won the Nobel Prize for Economics for demonstrating the link between an expansion in the supply of money and higher inflation, Powell explicitly outlined that argument.
In the Sixties, he mocked the use of prices and incomes policies (with which the government tried to control inflation by limiting increases in wages and prices). He also ridiculed the scape-goating of trades unions for ‘causing’ inflation by demanding big pay rises.
He deplored the waste of public money on nationalised industries and urged what he called their ‘denationalisation’, using the funds freed to pay for tax cuts to encourage economic growth. He also understood that if Scotland had a separate parliament, it would inevitably soon become a separate country.

Almost 45 years ago, before Britain made its successful application to join what was then called the Common Market, Powell warned Britons they would lose the power to govern themselves. Equally presciently, from the moment a single currency was mooted, he pointed out that countries joining it would be stripped of their economic sovereignty — and, if it were to function properly, would lose the right to have their governments determine the exact nature of their public spending.
And, in an age when it was more or less compulsory for Conservative politicians to worship America, and America’s influence in the world, Powell repeatedly made clear his distrust of U.S. foreign policy, believing it would cause more conflicts than it prevented.
He had first seen what he considered to be America’s heavy hand in diplomacy when, as a staff officer, he attended Churchill’s meeting with Roosevelt at Casablanca in 1943.
Nothing he saw subsequently made him feel any better about that country.
Yet all these ideas — ideas now espoused with fervour by politicians, and not just those of the Right — remain clouded by the controversy over Powell’s views on what his critics call ‘race’.

In fact, although Powell made many speeches on immigration, he never made one on race: because he was not a racist, and therefore the matter would have been irrelevant and intellectually absurd to him.
He had served in India during World War II learned Urdu and Punjabi to a high standard, loved Indian culture, and said he would have been quite happy to live and die there. He was devoid of any idiotic ideas of racial superiority. However, when as shadow defence secretary he made what he called the Birmingham speech — the Rivers of Blood speech to almost everyone else — the Left seized upon his words in a fit of self-righteous panic, and engaged in one of the most revolting orgies of grand-standing in our political history.
His fellow Conservatives attacked him in order to try to distance themselves from any taint of racism. Socialists attacked him in an attempt to destroy the moral reputation of the Conservative Party.
I knew Powell well for the last 15 or so years of his life — he died in 1998, and he asked me to write his biography. During many long conversations, he never expressed a trace of regret at having made the speech, except in one particular.
‘If I had quoted Virgil in the original (Latin),’ he said of the ‘River Tiber’ phrase that came to distinguish the speech, ‘I shouldn’t have caused so much trouble.’
He may not have regretted what he said on that fateful day, but he came to realise that his use of a vivid classical quotation had derailed his otherwise conventional political career.
He had warned that if the Labour government’s anti-discrimination Race Relations Bill became law, it would allow the immigrant community to ‘agitate and campaign against their fellow citizens’. The apocalypse was in sight.
‘As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see “the River Tiber foaming with much blood”,’ he said.
The allusion was to the Sibyl’s prophecy in Book VI of Virgil’s Aeneid about Aeneas’s return to Rome: ‘I see wars, horrible wars, and the Tiber foaming with much blood.’

Part of Powell’s problem was that hardly anyone in his audience, or who read reports of the speech, had his titanic intellect or his subtlety of mind. Crucially, the speech was made without prior warning to his fellow shadow cabinet members, even though it had discussed the Race Relations Bill two days previously.
Outraged on this count and by the provocative content, Ted Heath sacked him from the shadow cabinet, and Powell’s messianic role in our politics was thereafter conducted from the backbenches and, thanks to his prolific journalism, through the columns of newspapers and magazines.
The Bill was why Powell made the speech: but he was at pains, in the speech itself and later on, to insist that he was doing so in his role as the MP for Wolverhampton South-West. His constituency had witnessed an enormous influx of immigrants in the preceding years.

He stressed that it was not only his white constituents who expressed their resentment at the scale of immigration: the small number of immigrants who had originally come to Wolverhampton in the Fifties had expressed their worries, too, because of the breakdown they perceived in community relations as a result of the barely restricted flow.
Powell had no objection to immigration. He had a profound one, however, to immigration on so large a scale, because it meant immigrants found it impossible to integrate.
He had witnessed the disaster of multiculturalism on the sub-continent (such as problems between different religions in India) and had no wish to see communal strife here, but he feared mass immigration would cause it.
Chiefly, he felt compelled to speak on behalf of his constituents. One had told him of his wish to emigrate and see his children settle overseas. He quoted him as saying: ‘In this country in 15 or 20 years’ time the black man will have the whip hand over the white man.’
Powell continued: ‘I can already hear the chorus of execration. How dare I say such a horrible thing? How dare I stir up trouble and inflame feelings by repeating such a conversation?
‘The answer is that I do not have the right not to do so . . . I simply do not have the right to shrug my shoulders and think about something else.’
He spoke, too, of communities following customs ‘inappropriate in Britain’; of the strain placed on housing, health, social services and education provision by the influx.
Most inflammatory of all, there was his reference to a little old lady who had excreta pushed through her letterbox by the immigrants who surrounded her.
Powell perhaps was disingenuous in expressing shock and surprise at the effect his speech had. He had warned the editor of his local newspaper, the week before he delivered it, that the speech would ‘fizz like a rocket’.
But I am certain he believed his stature in his party was too great for Heath to sack him, and he never contemplated that the speech would end his front-bench career.
Yet his dismissal had some positive consequences. The most direct of which was an Immigration Act in 1971 that responded to some of his concerns, by limiting the number of people from the Commonwealth who could apply for a British passport.

More than even that, his return to the backbenches gave him a freedom to expound ideas that helped break the destructive post-war consensus, and — not least by Margaret Thatcher’s own account — laid the foundations of what came to be called Thatcherism.
Powell, in league with his friend and admirer, the Labour Left-winger Michael Foot, derailed the joint attempt by the Wilson government and Heath’s opposition, to reform the House of Lords in 1969, which would have made it entirely the creature of the House of Commons.
That same year he began his high-profile crusade against British membership of the Common Market: his arguments were widely ignored then, but are now accepted as having been right by millions who used to discount them.
Mrs Thatcher developed her economic policy directly from Powell’s critique of the Heath government’s massively inflationary spending programme between 1970 and 1972.
But above all, as part of the Conservative Party’s internal opposition between 1970 and 1974, Powell demonstrated a towering integrity and commitment to principle that no other senior politician has ever come near.

‘Too often today,’ he had said shortly after the Birmingham speech, ‘people are ready to tell us, this is not possible, that is not possible. I say, whatever the true interest of our country calls for is always possible. We have nothing to fear but our own doubts.’
He refused to fight the February 1974 election for the Tories, on the legitimate grounds that Heath had broken virtually every promise of his 1970 manifesto. He went on to advise electors to vote for a party that promised a referendum on our continued membership of the Common Market — which meant voting Labour.
Even today, old television footage of the moment when he uttered this view, in a speech in Yorkshire three days before the election that Heath would lose, has the power to electrify.
‘Judas!’ a heckler cried.
‘Judas was paid!’ Powell retorted, in an instant. ‘Judas was paid! I am making a sacrifice!’
Having quit the Conservatives over Europe, Powell was invited to stand as Official Ulster Unionist candidate in South Down. He did, and won. He spent the rest of his parliamentary career (until 1987) as an Ulster MP.
Powell was a man of conspicuous moral greatness, something that, alone, made him unsuited for politics, because it meant he could not keep what he perceived to be the truth to himself.
He had a gift denied to most politicians, which was of making prophecies that were right.
He was right about Europe; right about the single currency; right about economic management; right about Lords reform; right about devolution; right about American imperialism; and, with even Trevor Phillips, the figurehead of the Equalities Commission, now arguing that multiculturalism has failed, right about that, too.
Fourteen years after his death, and almost half-a-century after he sat in the Cabinet, his influence on political thought is not only undiminished: it continues to grow.

“The hammer didn’t do it, I had to strangle her to kill her,” says MUSLIM asylum seeker who murdered his girlfriend, 17

“The hammer didn’t do it, I had to strangle her to kill her,” says MUSLIM asylum seeker who murdered his girlfriend, 17 | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

“The hammer didn’t do it, I had to strangle her to kill her,” says MUSLIM asylum seeker who murdered his girlfriend, 17

A failed MUSLIM asylum seeker from Iran who strangled his British girlfriend to death after learning he was to be deported, was jailed for at least ten-and-a-half years today.

Ako Amin, 19, flew into a rage and battered 17-year-old Cheryl Tariah with a hammer after she showed up at his hostel bedroom unexpectedly. He then grasped his hands around her neck, choking her to death in a ‘prolonged’ attack, the Old Bailey heard.

A neighbour overheard Amin shouting out other men’s names, before Cheryl told him: ‘Don’t hurt me, leave me alone and get off me.’ The shouts were followed by screams and choking that could be heard through an open window in the street below.

After covering his victim’s body with a duvet, Amin casually strolled to a nearby library, where he bragged to a friend: ‘The hammer didn’t do it – I had to strangle her.’

Iranian-born Amin, applied for asylum, but was rejected and he had exhausted the appeals process the day before the killing on February 7 this year.

Judge Richards Marks QC told him his ‘wicked act’ had deprived Cheryl’s mother – whose husband died in 2010 – of a loving daughter’s ‘comfort and support’.

‘This is a shocking incident in which a young woman has lost her life and the consequences for Cheryl Tariah’s mother can only be imagined,’ he said. ‘She lost her husband in 2010 and is left by herself to look after a severely autistic son. ‘She now no longer has that comfort and support through your selfish and wicked behaviour – for there is no other way to describe it.

Cheryl, who lived in Tottenham, north London, and was studying art at Chelmsford College in Essex, had been in an ‘on-off’ relationship with her killer for around a year.

But she often found him to be possessive, jealous and controlling. ‘He refused to let her talk to other boys or let her go to parties,’ said Mrs Whitehouse. ‘It was said he hacked into her Facebook and email accounts and changed her password to stop her sending messages.’

Mosque proposal REJECTED

AUSTRALIA rejects mosque proposal for being offensive-looking to the local community

Plans to build a mosque for the Bosnian Muslim community of Perth’s Swan Valley have been almost unanimously rejected by the local council on the grounds it would not fit in with the area’s rural character.

The proposal for the two-storey mosque with a 7-foot-(21m) high minaret had been strongly opposed by the community, with the City of Swan receiving 139 objections from 143 submissions during a public comment period last year.

Opposition to the building also drew support from the anti-Muslim Australian Protectionist Party. Eleven out of 12 councillors present at a meeting on Wednesday night voted against the development.

But the design is not the problem, according to Swan Valley Progress Association chairman Rod Henderson.

Illegal immigrant benefits fraudster keeps Chelsea flat

Illegal immigrant benefits fraudster keeps Chelsea flat | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

AN illegal immigrant who fiddled more than £30,000 in benefits cannot be kicked out of the country — because of human rights laws.
And amazingly, a series of rulings means single mother Joy Chishimba can not only STAY in her council flat in London’s fashionable Chelsea but  CONTINUE claiming benefits.

Chishimba, 26, entered Britain from Zambia on a student visa. In 2009 she fell pregnant, bought a fake UK passport for £1,000 and used it to get the flat and handouts. When she was eventually rumbled she admitted fraudulently claiming £30,000 in housing benefit and £4,000 in income support.

She was given a suspended ten-month jail sentence.

But her lawyers claimed separating her from her UK-born daughter would breach article 8 of the Human Rights Act 1988 that guarantees the right to a family life.

So a judge let her remain in the UK until at least 2014 — and as a result she can now claim benefits legally.

Kensington and Chelsea Council, which has 8,000 people on its homes waiting list, tried to evict her, saying she made herself “intentionally homeless” by committing the fraud.

But she complained she would be left wandering the streets and won a review.

Chishimba claims she only turned to crime out of desperation when her ex-boyfriend kicked her out. She said: “I just didn’t wake up one day and decide to do this. I had to protect my daughter.”

The UK Border Agency said there would be new legislation by the summer and added: “Public interest in removal should outweigh the migrant’s right to family life.”

Liverpool Labour Party paedophile supporters !

Liverpool Labour Party paedophile supporters ! | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Father’s protest against a left wing paedophile supporter at her place of work just yards from where toddler James Bulger was abducted, abused and murdered.

Members of the Parents against paedophiles (P.A.P) stormed into the shop where Nikki McDonough was working to challenge the owners of the ‘Cash Shop’ which employed a paedophile supporter.

In the early 1990’s toddler James Bulger was abducted and abused, then murdered just across the street in the Strand shopping center in Strand Road Bootle.

The angry parents were reacting to the setting up of a counter demonstration by miss McDonough and her union member boyfriend Phil Dickens who works just yards away in the Triad center also in Strand Road Bootle.

The pair of hard line left wing anarchists organised a violent demonstration against the people of Liverpool who objected to the abuse of countless young children in Rochdale by 9 convicted paedophiles.

The ‘sick’ pair turned up with suspected members of a far left group known as the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) who thought paedophilia was ‘normal.’

Brit Attempts Citizen's Arrest Of Tony Blair In Hong Kong

Brit Attempts Citizen's Arrest Of Tony Blair In Hong Kong | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
A British activist in Hong Kong has attempted to perform a citizen's arrest on Tony Blair, claiming it was his "moral obligation" to hold the former PM for war crimes.


Tom Grundy, a 29-year-old Briton living in the country, attempted the arrest at 5:40pm local time, around 11am in Britain, as the former prime minister gave a speech about faith and globalisation at Hong Kong university.

The activist told The Huffington Post UK he had planned the action two days before the speech, and sat waiting for the former Labour leader for an hour before the attempted arrest.

Grundy said he wanted to "renew awareness" about Blair, who he claims had violated international law in his support for the Iraq War.

"In 2009 Blair admitted he would have gone to war regardless of WMDs and international law forbids wars for reasons of regime change. So that's why I tried to perform a citizen's arrest," he said.

"I want him to fear that wherever he goes and I hope it may stick one day."

Grundy denied he was harassing Tony Blair saying: "I took one-to-two minutes of Mr Blair's time to make this point. I wouldn't call that harassment in any way. There's nothing legally ambiguous with regard to standing up and speaking loudly. He's a public figure and he's an ex-leader and he's still making public appearances like this… He's not immune simply because he's no longer in power."

He said during the incident he said he got "as close to him as I could."

"I was a metre or two directly in front of him but there was a gaggle of photographers and his men in front of me preventing me to go any further. I put it to him that he'd caused the death of at least 100,000 people during the Iraq War,

"I closed by telling him he can't talk about religion when he has set back religious tolerance by decades."

Grundy, who said he informed news agency Reuters about his plans before the arrest, claimed Blair's speech about faith was hypocritical, saying: "He has enraged the entire Muslim world, [and] endangered British citizens. When there was a terrorist attack on 7/7 those involved admitted that it was related to British foreign policy."

After the incident, which lasted for one or two minutes, Grundy said he looked directly at Blair before leaving of his own accord.

"For the latter part I was looking at him. He was looking at me as well. He didn't look sad, I think he's used to it.

"I always knew I was never realistically going to be able to arrest him here in Hong Kong there and then. I told Reuters in advance and that's what they were interested in. The fact that it's gone on the newswires is what I intended to do. It's to renew awareness.. It's kind of symbolic at this stage."

He added: "I learnt that he was coming here so I felt some kind of moral obligation [to try]. As a British person I was also misled over this issue of the Iraq war."

Blair told Grundy: "I think you've made your point. Now let me get on with making mine… You've made your point, that's democracy for you."

Grundy's attempt comes just over a week after protester David Lawley-Wakelin interrupted Blair's appearance at the Leveson inquiry to accuse him of "war crimes."

York University host radical Islamist | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A controversial Islamic speaker was due to appear before 300 people at York University's Islamic Society on Wednesday evening.

Yusuf Chambers is a founding member of the iERA (Islamic Education and Research Academy), which organises lectures and speaking tours.

Mr Chambers has previously suggested that sharia law should be used in Britain to allow adulterers to be "stoned to death" and has said "may Allah preserve us" from a "gay gene" that he believes leads to homosexuality.

Hasan Afzal, director of anti-extremist group Stand for Peace, said: "Defenders of Yusuf Chambers' views will claim this is a freedom of speech issue. It is not. It is a decency issue. The university has a duty to protect its students from religious extremism."

A university spokesman said: "We will monitor the situation closely and a senior member of staff will attend the event."

Efit and injury photos released after robbery in Southend

Efit and injury photos released after robbery in Southend | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Detectives have released an Efit image and a photograph of a woman’s facial injuries after a robbery in a park at Southend on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old victim has agreed to release a picture showing the extent of her facial injuries after she was repeatedly scratched by a woman who led the attack.

The incident happened at 12.30pm on June 12, 2012 when the woman, who has asked to be identified only as Leanne, was walking across Southchurch Hall Park, near Woodgrange Drive..

She was grabbed from behind and pulled back by her hair and confronted by a woman who demanded cash and her handbag.
When Leanne tried to struggle free she was forced to the ground by the woman and four male accomplices. The woman repeatedly scratched Leanne’s face while the three men kicked her in the legs and waist area.

Leanne, who lives in the Southend area, was robbed of her bag containing £62 cash, a gold chain, store cards and documents.

She was comforted by passersby until police and paramedics arrived.

Investigating officer DC Rory Scarlett said: “This was an absolutely terrifying attack on a woman who was left severely distressed and covered in blood.

“We want to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or from anyone who saw the attackers lurking in the park before the incident or running away afterwards.”

The woman who led the attack was thought to be in her early 20s and about 5ft 1in tall. She was believed to be tanned or of mixed heritage and her dark coloured hair was in a pony tail.

Three of the men were black and all thought to be in their early 30s. One was wearing a red hooded top and the others had black hoodies. The fourth man was white, also in his 20s and of skinny build. He was wearing a black jumper.


Anyone with information should contact DC Rory Scarlett or his colleagues at the Southend Target Team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Thieving Bradford NHS manager escapes jail

Thieving Bradford NHS manager escapes jail | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A SENIOR NHS manager from Bradford who wrongly harboured more than £146,000 of public money in bank accounts he controlled avoided jail today.

Sajid Khan previously admitted retaining the money in bank accounts belonging to members of his family, including his grandmother, Bradford Crown Court heard.

The 34-year-old held £146,143.10 of NHS money between September 2005 and last February without declaring or repaying the funds.

The money was used to make payments on a leased car, transferred into other accounts or withdrawn in cash soon after being received.

It is unclear how the money ended up in the accounts.

Khan, a father-of-two, pleaded guilty to dishonestly retaining a wrongful credit in January.

Since then he and his family have paid back all the money to Bradford and Airedale Primary Care Trust (PCT), where he used to work as an assistance finance manager.

Judge Colin Burn gave Khan a one-year prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered him to do 250 hours of unpaid work. Khan was also ordered to pay £25,000 in court costs at a rate of £2,000 a month.

The judge said: “This isn’t a situation whereby money which should be used for treatment for the general care of the people of Bradford has been lost.

“It seems to me that you fall to be dealt with ultimately not for the PCT being out of pocket, not for the prosecution being out of pocket, but rather for your dishonest conduct towards a public institution.”

The investigation began in June 2008 when a PCT finance officer found an undelivered email in his account that requested a redundancy payment of £54,600 to a bank account in the name of “C Allerton”.

No one with that name worked for the PCT and the finance officer had not written or attempted to send the email.

After enquiries it was discovered that the holder of this account was Khan’s brother and similar transactions had been made.

When police arrested Khan in February 2010 he had 30 bank cards for accounts belonging to members of his family.

His home was searched and bank statements were found relating to the accounts where payments had been made.

Khan, of Walmer Villas, Bradford, pleaded guilty to the charge of retaining a wrongful credit as soon as it was entered on the indictment.

In total, 26 payments were made into Khan’s accounts.

UAF - Demo in Glasgow 16/06/12 | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

There will be a demo in Glasgow this Saturday by the Reds to stop Illegal immigrants getting deported from the UK !

The Reds would have an open planet, they would have it so you could go anywhere in the world at any given time, this is as we know in today's world is NOT possible.

How about we could do a transfer system, every time they don't want an illegal to go they go in their place?

The NHS amongst all our other industries cannot handle the saturation that we are already experiencing in this country, but the UAF would have you believe all you need to do is NOT wash and NOT work and study until your 54 years old and the tax payer will cover this!

Well we say NO, if you are here illegally then I'm sorry you face deportation, just like all civilised countries all over the world this is common practice.

I don't know what the Reds are worried about they will probably be back in the country within the week.....then the whole process starts again, more expense and hassle.

The demo will be held at Clydewalk Way, situated at the junction of the Broomielaw and Washington Street, please arrive early for a 1pm start.

Please contact David Orr on 07828231082

Fascist Chic: Pippa Bartolotti moves into the world of Reality TV

Our old acquaintance Pippa Bartolotti (best known perhaps for her fight last year with a pair of sliding doors at Ben Gurion airport) appears to have made a career move from agitprop to reality TV.

For those unfamiliar with the British Channel 4 show ‘Come Dine With Me’, the format involves a group of people holding dinner parties for each other which are then graded by the participants, with the winner receiving a cash prize. This week Ms. Bartolotti – described in the blurb as a ‘peace activist’ (which appears to have become an occupation; other contestants are described as a radio journalist and a housewife) hosted the meal.

Although it is not possible to view the show from outside the UK, the comments on the program’s Facebook account appear to suggest that Pippa did not make much of an impression on some of the viewers with her locally sourced spicy lettuce soup and egg curry.

Commenters’ remarks included “If i had that at my indian i would have sent it back”, “No offence but looked totally minging”, “Sounds disgusting”, “she mad as a box of frogs”, “That was a truly awful menu!!” and “Pippa’s food was slightly odd”.

The trick with important dinner parties is, of course, to stick to tried and trusted recipes one has used frequently in the past. Here then, is a suggestion for Pippa’s next soiree.


Sliding Door Soup with Suitcase Croutons

Fascist Flag Fricassee served with a side dish of Steamy Islamist Rhetoric

Greens Salad

Flambe a la Flynn with Dual-Loyalty Sauce

Ethically-sourced Free Trade Organic Caffeine-free Coffee substitute (produced in Merthyr Tydfil to reduce food-miles) with ‘Not the kind, loving British Jews I have known all my life‘ thin mints

And for entertainment, rather than fortune-telling with witch-doctor bones, perhaps Ms Bartolotti could go for something more conventional and show her guests some holiday snaps.

Islamic school teacher sexually abused children over 22 years

Islamic school teacher sexually abused children over 22 years | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

At Harrow Crown Court, Hasnain Manji admitted seven counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, six counts of sexual activity with a boy and two counts of indecent assault.


The first crime happened as long ago as November 1989, when Manji attacked a 12-year-old boy. The victim is now in his 30s.

Manji, from Hertfordshire, continued to prey on children until finally being exposed by a victim he abused in the 10 months up until May 2011.

Scotland Yard got involved when the child’s mother contacted them, after being told of the abuse

Manji was a tutor at weekends for several years at the Islamic Centre in Stanmore.

Last Friday (June 8), he was jailed for five years and placed for life on the child sex register.

Detective Constable Rachel Snow, of the Met Police’s child abuse investigation command, said: “This man waited until these young boys were alone before assaulting them whilst they were vulnerable.

“The first two victims suffered in silence for many years trying to put what happened to them at the back of their minds. I commend the bravery of the victims for coming forward. Justice has been done as this man received his sentence, ensuring that no other innocent child shall suffer in his hands in the future.”

Police fear more victims of Manji may have not reported abuse. A special hotline has been set up by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). Call: 0808 800 5000.
