Speech by Geert Wilders, Rome, 25 March 2011
Signore e signori, ladies and gentlemen, dear friends of the Magna Carta Foundation, molte grazie. Thank you for inviting me to Rome. It is great to be here in this beautiful city which for many centuries was the capital and the centre of Europe’s Judeo-Christian culture.
Together with Jerusalem and Athens, Rome is the cradle of our Western civilization – the most advanced and superior civilization the world has ever known.
As Westerners, we share the same Judeo-Christian culture. I am from the Netherlands and you are from Italy. Our national cultures are branches of the same tree. We do not belong to multiple cultures, but to different branches of one single culture. This is why when we come to Rome, we all come home in a sense. We belong here, as we also belong in Athens and in Jerusalem.
It is important that we know where our roots are. If we lose them we become deracinated. We become men and women without a culture.
I am here today to talk about multiculturalism. This term has a number of different meanings. I use the term to refer to a specific political ideology. It advocates that all cultures are equal. If they are equal it follows that the state is not allowed to promote any specific cultural values as central and dominant. In other words: multiculturalism holds that the state should not promote a leitkultur, which immigrants have to accept if they want to live in our midst.
It is this ideology of cultural relativism which the German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently referred to when she said that multiculturalism has proved “an absolute failure.”
My friends, I dare say that we have known this all along. Indeed, the premise of the multiculturalist ideology is wrong. Cultures are not equal. They are different, because their roots are different. That is why the multiculturalists try to destroy our roots.
Rome is a very appropriate place to address these issues. There is an old saying which people of our Western culture are all familiar with. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” it says. This is an obvious truth: If you move somewhere, you must adapt to the laws and customs of the land.
The multicultural society has undermined this rule of common sense and decency. The multicultural society tells the newcomers who settle in our cities and villages: You are free to behave contrary to our norms and values. Because your norms and values are just as good, perhaps even better, than ours.
It is, indeed, appropriate to discuss these matters here in Rome, because the history of Rome also serves as a warning.
Will Durant, the famous 20th century American historian, wrote that “A great civilization cannot be destroyed from outside if it has not already destroyed itself from within.” This is exactly what happened here, in Rome, 16 centuries ago.
In the 5th century, the Roman Empire fell to the Germanic Barbarians. There is no doubt that the Roman civilization was far superior to that of the Barbarians. And yet, Rome fell. Rome fell because it had suffered a loss of belief in its own civilization. It had lost the will to stand up and fight for survival.
Rome did not fall overnight. Rome fell gradually. The Romans scarcely noticed what was happening. They did not perceive the immigration of the Barbarians as a threat until it was too late. For decades, Germanic Barbarians, attracted by the prosperity of the Empire, had been crossing the border.
At first, the attraction of the Empire on newcomers could be seen as a sign of the cultural, political and economic superiority of Rome. People came to find a better life which their own culture could not provide. But then, on December 31st in the year 406, the Rhine froze and tens of thousands of Germanic Barbarians, crossed the river, flooded the Empire and went on a rampage, destroying every city they passed. In 410, Rome was sacked.
The fall of Rome was a traumatic experience. Numerous books have been written about the cataclysmal event and Europeans were warned not to make the same mistake again. In 1899, in his book ‘The River War,’ Winston Churchill warned that Islam is threatening Europe in the same way as the Barbarians once threatened Rome. “Mohammedanism,” Churchill wrote – I quote – “is a militant and proselytizing faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the World. […] The civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.” End of quote.
Churchill is right. However, if Europe falls, it will fall because, like ancient Rome, it no longer believes in the superiority of its own civilization. It will fall because it foolishly believes that all cultures are equal and that, consequently, there is no reason why we should fight for our own culture in order to preserve it.
This failure to defend our own culture has turned immigration into the most dangerous threat that can be used against the West. Multiculturalism has made us so tolerant that we tolerate the intolerant.
Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: Our opponents are keenly aware of our weakness. They realize that the pattern which led to the fall of Rome, is at play today in the West. They are keenly aware of the importance of Rome as a symbol of the West. Over and over again they hint at the fall of Rome. Rome is constantly on their minds.
  • The former Turkish Prime Minister Erbakan said – I quote: “The whole of Europe will become Islamic. We will conquer Rome”.
  • Yunis al-Astal, a Hamas cleric and member of the Palestinian Parliament said – I quote: “Very soon Rome will be conquered.”
  • Ali Al-Faqir, the former Jordanian Minister of Religion,  stated that – I quote: “Islam will conquer Rome.”
  • Sheikh Muhammad al-Arifi, imam of the mosque of the Saudi Defence Academy, said – I quote: “We will control Rome and introduce Islam in it.”
Our opponents are hoping for an event that is akin to the freezing of the Rhine in 406, when thousands of immigrants will be given an easy opportunity to cross massively into the West.
  • In a 1974 speech to the UN, the Algerian President Houari Boumédienne, said – I quote: “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.” End of quote.
  • Libyan dictator Kadhafi said, I quote: “There are tens of millions of Muslims in the European continent today and their number is on the increase. This is the clear indication that the European continent will be converted into Islam. Europe will one day soon be a Muslim continent.” End of quote.
Our opponents are aiming for a repetition of the fall of Rome in the 5th century and want to use exactly the same methods. “The strategy of exporting human beings and having them breed in abundance is the simplest way to take possession of a territory,” warned the famous Italian author Oriana Fallaci.
However, the situation today could be worse than it was when the Roman Empire fell. The Germanic Barbarians who overran Rome were not driven by an ideology. After having sacked Rome, they eventually adopted the Judeo-Christian civilization of Rome. They destroyed Rome because they wanted its riches, but they realized and recognized that Roman civilization was superior to their own Barbaric culture.
Having destroyed Rome, the Germanic tribes eventually tried to rebuild it. In 800, the Frankish leader Charlemagne had himself crowned Roman Emperor. Three hundred years later, the Franks and the other Europeans  would go on the Crusades in defence of their Christian culture. The Crusades were as Oriana Fallaci wrote – I quote – a “counter-offensive designed to stem Islamic expansionism in Europe.” Rome had fallen, but like a phoenix it had risen again.
Contrary to the Barbarians which confronted Rome, the followers of Muhammad are driven by an ideology which they want to impose on us.
Islam is a totalitarian ideology. Islamic Shariah law supervises every detail of life. Islam is not compatible with our Western way of life. Islam is a threat to our values. Respect for people who think otherwise, the equality of men and women, the equality of homosexuals and heterosexuals, respect for Christians, Jews, unbelievers and apostates, the separation of church and state, freedom of speech, they are all under pressure because of islamization.
Europe is islamizing at a rapid pace. Many European cities have large islamic concentrations. In some neighbourhoods, Islamic regulations are already being enforced. Women’s rights are being trampled. We are confronted with headscarves and burqa’s, polygamy, female genital mutilation, honour-killings. “In each one of our cities” says Oriana Fallaci, “there is a second city, a state within the state, a government within the government. A Muslim city, a city ruled by the Koran.” – End of quote.
Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: The multiculturalist Left is facilitating islamization. Leftist multiculturalists are cheering for every new shariah bank, for every new islamic school, for every new mosque. Multiculturalists consider Islam as being equal to our own culture. Shariah law or democracy? Islam or freedom? It doesn’t really matter to them. But it does matter to us. The entire leftist elite is guilty of practising cultural relativism. Universities, churches, trade unions, the media, politicians. They are all betraying our hard-won liberties.
Ladies and gentlemen, what is happening in Europe today has to some extent been deliberately planned
In October 2009, Andrew Neather, the former advisor of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, confirmed that the British Government had deliberately organized mass immigration as part of a social engineering project. The Blair Government wanted to – I quote – “make the UK truly multicultural.” To achieve this end, 2.3 million foreigners were allowed to enter Britain between 2000 and 2009. Neather says this policy has “enriched” Britain.
Ordinary people, however, do not consider the decline of societal cohesion, the rise of crime, the transformation of their old neighborhoods into no-go zones, to be an “enrichment.”
Ordinary people are well aware that they are witnessing a population replacement phenomenon. Ordinary people feel attached to the civilization which their ancestors created. They do not want it to be replaced by a multicultural society where the values of the immigrants are considered as good as their own. It is not xenophobia or islamophobia to consider our Western culture as superior to other cultures – it is plain common sense.
Fortunately, we are still living in a democracy. The opinion of ordinary people still matters. I am the leader of the Dutch Party of Freedom which aims to halt the Islamization process and defend the traditional values and liberties in the Netherlands. The Party of Freedom is the fastest growing party in the Netherlands.
Because the message of my party is so important, I support initiatives to establish similar parties in other countries, such as Germany, France and the United Kingdom, where they do not yet exist. Last month, a poll in Britain showed that a staggering 48 percent of the British would consider supporting a non-fascist and non-violent party that vows to crack down on immigration and Islamic extremists and restrict the building of mosques. In October last year, I was in Berlin where I gave a keynote speech at a meeting of Die Freiheit, a newly established party led by René Stadtkewitz, a former Christian-Democrat. German polls indicate that such a party has a potential of 20 percent of the electorate.
My speech, in which I urged the Germans to stop feeling ashamed about their German identity drew a lot of media attention. Two weeks later, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that multiculturalism is “an absolute failure.” Horst Seehofer, the leader of the Bavarian Christian-Democrats, was even more outspoken. “Multiculturalism is dead,” he said.
Last month, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said: “We have been too concerned about the identity of the immigrant and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.” – End of quote.
Five weeks ago, British Prime Minister David Cameron blamed multiculturalism for Islamic extremism. “We have allowed the weakening of our collective identity,” he said. “Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live […] apart from the mainstream.” – End of quote.
In his speech, David Cameron still makes a distinction between the Islamist ideology, which he calls extremist and dangerous, and Islam, which he says is peaceful religion. I do not share this view, and neither did Cameron’s great predecessor Winston Churchill. Stating that Islam is peaceful is a multiculturalist dogma which is contrary to the truth.
Politicians such as Merkel. Sarkozy and Cameron still do not seem to have understood what the problem really is. Nevertheless, the fact that they feel compelled to distance themselves from multiculturalism is a clear indication that they realize they need to pay lip-service to what the majority of their populations have long understood. Namely that the massive influx of immigrants from Islamic countries is the most negative development that Europe has known in the past 50 years.
Yesterday, a prestigious poll in the Netherlands revealed that 50 percent of the Dutch are of the opinion that Islam and democracy are not compatible, while 42 percent think they are. Even two thirds of the voters of the Liberal Party and of the Christian-Democrat Party are convinced that Islam and democracy are not compatible.
This, then, is the political legacy of multiculturalism. While the parties of the Left have found themselves a new electorate, the establishment parties of the Right still harbour their belief that Islam is a religion of peace on a par with peaceful religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and others.
The problem with multiculturalism is a refusal to see reality. The reality that our civilization is superior, and the reality that Islam is a dangerous ideology.
Today, we are confronted with political unrest in the Arab countries. Autocratic regimes, such as that of Ben Ali in Tunisia, Mubarak in Egypt, Kadhafi in Libya, the Khalifa dynasty in Bahrain, and others, have been toppled or are under attack. The Arab peoples long for freedom. This is only natural. However, the ideology and culture of Islam is so deeply entrenched in these countries that real freedom is simply impossible. As long as Islam remains dominant there can be no real freedom.
Let us face reality. On March 8, the International Women’s Day, 300 women demonstrated on Cairo’s Tahrir Square in post-Mubarak Egypt. Within minutes, the women were charged by a group of bearded men, who beat them up and dragged them away. Some were even sexually assaulted. The police did not interfere. This is the new Egypt: On Monday, people demonstrate for freedom; on Tuesday, the same people beat up women because they, too, demand freedom.
I fear that in Islamic countries, democracy will not lead to real freedom. A survey by the American Pew Center found that 59 percent of Egyptians prefer democracy to any other form of government. However, 85 percent say that Islam’s influence on politics is good, 82 percent believe that adulterers should be stoned, 84 percent want the death penalty for apostates, and 77 percent say that thieves should be flogged or have their hands cut off.
Ronald Reagan was right when he called Kadhafi a “mad dog.” However, we should not harbor the illusion that there can be real freedom and real democracy in a country where Islam is dominant. There is no doubt that the results of the Pew survey in Egypt apply in Libya, too. It is not in our interest to bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Tripoli and install a khalifate in Libya.
Of course, the world has to stop Kadhafi from killing his own people. However, as UN Resolution 1973 stated last week, this is primarily the responsibility of – I quote – “in particular [the] States of the region.” End of quote. Why does a country like the Netherlands have to contribute six F16 fighter jets to enforce the arms embargo in Libya, while Saudi Arabia does not contribute a single plane from its fleet of nearly 300 fighter jets? Arabs are dying, but the Arab countries are shirking their responsibilities.
And one of the major threats of the current crisis is not even addressed by our leaders: How are we going to prevent that thousands of economic fugitives and fortune seekers cross the Mediterranean and arrive at place like Lampedusa? Now that Tunisia is liberated, young Tunisians should help to rebuild their country instead of leaving for Lampedusa. Europe cannot afford another influx of thousands of refugees.
Ladies and gentlemen,
It is time to wake up. We need to confront reality and we need to speak the truth. The truth is that Islam is evil, and the reality is that Islam is a threat to us.
Before I continue I want to make clear, however, that I do not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people and the ideology, between Muslims and Islam. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.
Islam strives for world domination. The koran commands Muslims to exercise jihad and impose shariah law.
Telling the truth about immigration and warning that Islam might not be as benevolent as the ruling elite says, has been made a hate speech crime in several EU member states. As you probably know, I have been brought to court on charges of hate speech. That is the paradox of the multicultural society. It claims to be pluralistic, but allows only one point of view of world affairs, namely that all cultures are equal and that they are all good.
The fact that we are treated as criminals for telling the truth must not, however, deter us. The truth that Islam is evil has always been obvious to our ancestors. That is why they fought. It was very clear to them that our civilization was far superior to Islam.
It is not difficult to understand why our culture is far better than Islam. We Europeans, whether we be Christians, Jews, agnostics or atheists, believe in reason. We have always known that nothing good could be expected from Islam.
While our culture is rooted in Jerusalem, Athens and Rome, Islam’s roots are the desert and the brain of Muhammad. Our ancestors understood the consequences very well. The Koran, wrote the historian Theophanes, who lived in the second half of the 8th century, is based on hallucinations.
“Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman,” the Byzantine Emperor Manuel II said in 1391, adding: “God is not pleased by blood – and not acting reasonable is contrary to God’s nature.”
For 1,400 years, Westerners have been criticizing Islam and its founder because they recognized evil when they saw it. But then, suddenly, in the last decades of the past century, especially from the 1970s onwards, Western intellectuals stopped doing so.
The moral and cultural relativism of Marxism led the West’s political and intellectual elites to adopt a utopian belief in a universal brotherhood of mankind.
Multiculturalism is a culture of repudiation of Europe’s heritage and freedoms. It weakens the West day by day. It leads to the self-censorship of the media and academia, the collapse of the education system, the emasculation of the churches, the subversion of the nation-state, the break-down of our free society.
While today – at last – our leaders seem to realize what a disastrous failure multiculturalism has been, multiculturalism is not dead yet. More is needed to defeat multiculturalism than the simple proclamations that it has been an “absolute failure.” What is needed is that we turn the tide of Islamization.
There are a few things which we can do in this regard.
One thing which we should do is to oppose the introduction of Sharia or Islamic law in our countries. In about a dozen states in the United States, legislation is currently being introduced to prevent the introduction of Sharia. In early May, I will be travelling to the U.S. to express my support to these initiatives. We should consider similar measures in Europe.
Another thing which we should do is support Muslims who want to leave Islam. An International Women’s Day is useless in the Arab world if there is no International Leave Islam Day. I propose the introduction of such a day in which we can honor the courageous men and women who want to leave Islam. Perhaps we can pick a symbolic date for such a day and establish an annual prize for an individual who has turned his back on Islam or an organization which helps people to liberate themselves from Islam. It is very easy to become a Muslim. All one has to do is to pronounce the Shahada, the Islamic creed, which says – I quote “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” It should be equally easy to leave Islam by pronouncing a counter-Shahada, which says “I leave Islam and join humankind.”
A third measure to turn the tide of Islamization is to reemphasize the sovereignty of the nation-state. The peoples of the free world will only be able to fight back against Islam if they can rally around a flag with which they can identify. This flag, symbolizing pre-political loyalty, can only be the flag of our nation. In the West, our freedoms are embodied in our nation-states. This is why the multiculturalists are hostile to the nation-state and aim to destroy it.
National identity is an inclusive identity: It welcomes everyone, whatever his religion or race, who is willing to assimilate into a nation by sharing the fate and future of a people. It ties the individual to an inheritance, a tradition, a loyalty, and a culture.
I want to elaborate a bit on this since we are gathered here today in Rome. Again, it is appropriate that we are in Rome. In this city, in 1957, and – what an ironic coincidence – on this very day, the 25th of March, the Treaty of Rome was signed. This Treaty obliges the member states of the European Union to aim for “an ever closer union.”
Unfortunately, this union, like other multinational organizations, has become one of the vehicles for the promotion of multiculturalism. The EU has fallen in the hands of a multiculturalist elite who by undermining national sovereignty destroy the capacity of the peoples of Europe to democratically decide their own future.
The new government in my country, which is supported by my party, wants to restrict immigration. That is what our voters want. But we are confronted by the fact that our policies have to a large extent been outsourced to “Europe” and that our voters no longer have a direct say over their own future.
On account of international treaties, EU legislation prevails over national legislation and cannot be reversed by national parliaments. Indeed, in 2008, the European Court of Justice, the highest court in the EU, annulled both Irish and Danish immigration legislation. The Court stated that national law is subordinate to whatever is ruled on the European level. In March 2010, the European Court of Justice annulled Dutch legislation restricting family reunification for immigrants on welfare.
The ease with which Europe’s political elite conducts an immigration policy aimed at the deracination of Europe shows the insensitivity of this elite. It willingly sacrifices its own people to its political goal, without any consideration for the people involved.
Lower class blue-collar people have been driven from their neighborhoods. There is no respect for their democratic vote. On the contrary, people who do not agree with the multiculturalist schemes are considered to be racists and xenophobes, while the undefined offence of “racism and xenophobia” has been made central to all moral pronouncements by the European Union, the Council of Europe, the United Nations, and other supra-national organizations. This represents a systematic assault by the elite on the ordinary feelings of national loyalty.
In 2008, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe stated that the member-states must – I quote – “condemn and combat Islamophobia” and ensure “that school textbooks do not portray Islam as a hostile or threatening religion.” – end of quote.
In March 2010, the United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution criminalizing so-called “defamation of religions.” The resolution, authored by Pakistan, mentions only one religion by name: Islam. With its 57 member states the Organization of the Islamic Conference systematically uses its voting power in the UN to subvert the concept of freedom and human rights. In 1990, the OIC rejected the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and replaced it by the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which states in articles 24 that – I quote – “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Sharia.” – end of quote.
This “human rights” charade has to stop if Western civilization wants to survive. Human rights exist for the protection of individuals, not religions and ideologies.
The EU’s aim, meanwhile, seems to be to destroy the old sovereign nations and replace them by new provincial identities, which are all clones of each other. Britanistan will not differ from Netherlandistan, nor Germanistan from Italiastan, or any other province of the European superstate in the making.
We must reclaim Europe. We can only do so by giving political power back to the nation-state. By defending the nation-states which we love, we defend our own identity. By defending our identity, we defend who we are and what we are against those who want to deracinate us. Against those who want to cut us from our roots, so that our culture withers away and dies.
My friends,
Twenty years after the ordinary people, Europe’s mainstream conservative leaders, such as Merkel, Sarkozy and Cameron, have finally – better late than never – come to the obvious conclusion, namely that multiculturalism is a failure. However, they do not have a plan to remedy the situation.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for change. We must make haste. Time is running out. Ronald Reagan said: “We need to act today, to preserve tomorrow”. That is why I propose the following measures in order to preserve our freedom:
First, we will have to defend freedom of speech. It is the most important of our liberties. If we are free to speak, we will be able to tell people the truth and they will realize what is at stake.
Second, we will have to end cultural relativism. To the multiculturalists, we must proudly proclaim: Our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Only when we are convinced of that, we will be willing to fight for our own identity.
Third, we will have to stop Islamization. Because more Islam means less freedom. We must stop immigration from Islamic countries, we must expel criminal immigrants, we must forbid the construction of new mosques. There is enough Islam in Europe already. Immigrants must assimilate and adapt to our values: When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
Fourth, we must restore the supremacy and sovereignty of the nation-state. Because we are citizens of these states, we can take pride in them. We love our nation because they are our home, because they are the legacy which our fathers bestowed on us and which we want to bestow on our children. We are not multiculturalists, we are patriots. And because we are patriots, we are willing to fight for freedom.
Let me end with a final – and a positive – remark: Though the situation is bad and multiculturalism is still predominant, we are in better shape than the Roman Empire was before its fall.
The Roman Empire was not a democracy. The Romans did not have freedom of speech. We are the free men of the West. We do not fight for an Empire, we fight for ourselves. We fight for our national republics. You fight for Italy, I fight for the Netherlands, others fight for France, Germany, Britain, Denmark or Spain. Together we stand. Together we represent the nations of Europe.
I am confident that if we can safeguard freedom of speech and democracy, our civilization will be able to survive. Europe will not fall. We, Europe’s patriots, will not allow it.
Thank you very much.

The Real Story Behind the UK Budget: Benefits

Behind the Budget: Benefits

This is the first in a short series of articles looking behind the headlines at the real effect of the ConDem austerity budget.
According to the spin from some newspapers and the ConDem coalition, individuals will only be worse off from the income tax and national insurance changes announced in the budget once their income gets close to £50,000.
But the reality is very different. Their spin does not take into account all the VAT and benefit changes.
From 2012, when many of the tax credit changes kick in, all households will be worse off, even the poorest.
The ConDem coalition want to slash welfare and benefits for the most vulnerable in our society.
They have changed the way benefits and tax credits will be uprated each year to match the consumer prices index, not the often-higher retail price index. This sleight of hand will cut benefits for the sick and poor year by year.

Undermining Families
The ConDem coalition is also slashing individual benefits. Over one million households will be ineligible for tax credits next year (all households earning over £40,000).
Currently nine in ten families with children can get some help from tax credits. By 2012–13 this will fall to six in ten.
Mr Osborne said he would abolish the universal "health in pregnancy" grant from April 2011, worth £190, and restrict the Sure Start maternity grant to the first child only.
Child benefit, to which all families are entitled, will be frozen for the next three years.

Pressure on the Disabled
The government will also introduce a medical assessment for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) from 2013 for new and existing claimants, specifically aimed at cutting down on the numbers claiming it.
DLA is the weekly allowance that can be claimed by people so physically or mentally disabled they cannot wash or dress themselves, can't eat unaided or use the toilet independently. It helps them pay for a helper.
Charities working in the sector have expressed alarm at the plan. Richard Hawkes, the chief executive of Scope, said: "The proposal to introduce a new medical assessment for DLA appears designed purely to reduce the number of people eligible for this support. DLA is not a benefit but a basic recognition that it is more expensive to live as a disabled person in our society."
The ConDem austerity coalition have not learned from history. In 1997, the New Labour government took over a similar project, the Benefits Integrity Project. This aimed to re-assess thousands of disabled people’s benefit entitlement. As news spread that disabled people were being forced into abject poverty and some were considering suicide, the government discovered that unfairly cutting benefits can quickly become very unpopular. The Daily Mail and its Sunday sister were particularly critical, and disabled demonstrators chained their wheelchairs to the gates of Parliament.

Caps on Housing Benefit
One of the most serious measures in the budget was the restriction of housing benefit to a maximum limit of £400 a week. From April 2011, Local Housing Allowance Rates will be capped at £250 per week for a one-bedroom property, £290 per week for a two-bedroom property, £340 per week for a three-bedroom property and £400 per week for four bedrooms or more.

The rates still look fairly high until you consider that they are often for households, not individuals, and that there is little affordable social housing anymore in our larger cities. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has warned that some families could find themselves forced into “poor quality, overcrowded housing” in areas where private rents were high, such as London and the south-east.
According to the UK homeless charity Shelter, up to nearly half of current claimants are already making up a shortfall in rent (not paid by Housing Benefit) of nearly £100 a month. Campbell Robb, Shelter’s chief executive, has said: “If this support is ripped out suddenly from under their feet, it will push many households over the edge, triggering a spiral of debt, eviction and homelessness.”
With thousands in the borough facing shortfalls in their rent due to Housing Benefit caps, at least one Council, Westminster, has warned [1]: “If you do not make up the shortfall in your rent, take insufficient action to resolve the situation and are evicted for rent arrears, you could be considered intentionally homeless.”
When someone is declared intentionally homeless this means that the council no longer has a statutory duty to provide housing, even for vulnerable residents. This can often apply to those with children. In the past this has led to some homeless families being informed that a council will house the children (by issuing care proceedings), but the parents are not eligible for help.
The attack on benefits for the poor and sick is accompanied by bank bailouts and the sight of those who got our country into this economic mess in the first place living high on the hog. We are clearly not "all in this together". Many are questioning how we as a country set our priorities. How is it that dropping bombs on Libya is more important than buying equipment for local hospitals?
Our welfare system certainly needs sensible reform, but this isn't it. There is a lack of value based on the family unit in cuts targeted at them. The British National Party recognises that families are the basic building blocks of our Nation.
The budget does not recognise the problems and additional costs of the disabled in our society. The British National Party knows that disabled people have a big contribution to make to our Nation but also need help and support to facilitate that.
The cuts affecting the unemployed are not accompanied by any strong programme of rebuilding our industrial and manufacturing base, protecting our home markets and investment and co-ordination of research. Housing benefit caps are being introduced without any strong programme of building affordable social housing. The British National Party will introduce a Base Technologies Project to co-ordinate national research in key economic areas. We will pursue an economically nationalist policy to rebuild our home market. We will launch major public works to build affordable social housing.
Whilst we support measures that crack down on those abusing our Welfare State, we still want to provide assistance for those in genuine need. We also want to give life-chances to all our people to improve themselves. Only economic nationalism that builds secure employment with good pay and conditions for our people will do this.

Homosexual Propaganda Taught to Schoolchildren as Young as Five in Horwich and Bolton

Homosexual Propaganda Taught to Schoolchildren as Young as Five

By Stephen Palmer –
Material funded by British taxpayers is being used to brainwash primary-school children with homosexual propaganda, it has been revealed.
The charity Stonewall has issued “training packs” to schools that aim to teach children as young as five about homosexual relationships and to encourage boys to become cheerleaders and wear frocks.
The packs, which are backed by the Government’s Training and Development Agency (TDA), include a 30-minute DVD featuring primary school teachers giving “best practice” tips from their “own experience”.
One teacher in the DVD, Ruth Platt, of St Matthew’s Primary School in Cambridgeshire, said that a group of boys last year wanted to wear “dressing-up dresses” during role-play in the classroom.
“They really loved wearing the dressing-up dresses, and it went on for several weeks,” she said. “And within the culture of the classroom, I wanted to say that that was OK. And so when some of the other boys said, ‘Why are they wearing the dresses? They shouldn’t be wearing the dresses’, I just said, ‘No, that’s fine – if they want to wear the dresses, that’s up to them’. We try and encourage that kind of individuality.”
Tony Davies, the head teacher at the same school, said on the DVD about the school’s cheerleading team, “We’ve got boys with the pompoms doing the dance, you know, and I think that is absolutely wonderful.”
Head teacher Garry Ratcliffe, of Oakfield Community Primary School, added that children should learn to be “resilient” to the values of their parents if they disagree over homosexual issues.
The training packs also push the reading of pro-homosexual books in classrooms, like Tango Makes Three, about two “gay” penguins who raise a chick together; King & King, about two princes who kiss and get married; Spacegirl Pukes, about a girl brought up by lesbians; and The Sissy Duckling, a story of a homosexual duck who is “a big sissy and proud of it”.
An accompanying guide to the books suggests that children perform plays based on these stories, with pupils acting out the roles of the characters.
Also included are posters such as the pictured  “Different Families Same Love”, which comprises a series of drawings of racially mixed and homosexual families. Another poster displays a chart of different relationships disguised as mathematical equations, such as “dad + dad’s boyfriend =” and “mum + mum’s girlfriend =” followed by pictures of different-coloured hearts.
The British National Party regards this sexual and racial brainwashing of children as wholly perverse. The teaching of sexual propaganda to children is akin to child abuse and has no place in a healthy, normal society.

    Staffordhire Town’s War Memorial Defaced with Islamic Graffiti – Again

    Town’s War Memorial Defaced with Islamic Graffiti – Again

    By Stephen Palmer – A Staffordshire war memorial has become the second in its town to be sprayed with Islamic graffiti in just over a year, but local representatives are still more concerned about how the crimes will affect the “Muslim community”.
    The memorial in Stretton, in Burton upon Trent, was daubed with “Support Taliban”, while a nearby bus shelter and building were spray-painted with the words “Jihad 4 Iraq”.
    The attack on the Stretton memorial was made all the more painful, as it came less than six months after the monument was finally erected following a twenty-year battle by local residents.
    Rather than simply decrying the crimes, vicar of Stretton Rev Kim Thomas, said: “I’m concerned that the Muslim community will get the blame, but they are not responsible. These are the actions of a small group of individuals, not the Muslim community as a whole.”
    The attack follows a similar case in Burton in December 2009, when Muslim Tohseef Shah, 21, was found guilty of spraying “Islam will dominate the world” and  “Osama is on his way” on the town’s Lichfield war memorial.
    He escaped with a conditional discharge after the Crown Prosecution Service ruled the crime was not religiously or racially motivated, despite his using the word “Islam” in his graffiti. At his trial, he refused to give an explanation for his actions or show any remorse.
    Incredibly, before the perpetrator was apprehended, Dennis Fletcher, chairman of the East Staffordshire Racial Equality Council, said he suspected members of the “far right” were responsible and were trying to “stir things up”.
    The Burton Mail, the local paper that carried the story, purposefully cropped the photograph of the vandalised war memorial in order to remove the Muslim graffiti itself from view, and no mention of its Islamic content was made in the report.
    Anyone in the area with information is asked to telephone Burton police on 0300 1234455, quoting incident number 178 of March 21. Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

    Nick Griffin Congratulates Marine Le Pen on Front National Poll Success

    Nick Griffin Congratulates Marine Le Pen on Poll Success

    Nick Griffin MEP has sent a message of congratulations to Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen after her party’s excellent results in the first round of French local cantonal elections.

    In Sunday’s elections, the FN polled 15 per cent, just behind the neo-Tory UMP on 17 per cent. The Opposition Socialists lead on 25 per cent. The FN polled as high as 30 per cent in some cantons. News of the Front National’s ascendancy has knocked stories about Libya off the front pages of many leading French newspapers.
    Under the French system, after the first round of voting, the top two candidates face each other in a second-round run-off, which is due to take place on Sunday 27 March. The FN reached the second round in just under 400 cantons, and more than 30 Front National candidates topped their polls.
    This is an excellent result for the party’s new leader, who was elected in January to succeed her father.
    Mme Le Pen said these results showed the FN was "no longer solely a protest vote". Her deputy Louis Aliot said this vote was part of a trend of rising FN support, and if it continued, the FN would replace the UMP as the main non-Socialist party.
    Earlier this month, two opinion polls predicted that in next year's presidential election, current president Nicolas Sarkozy could be knocked into third place by Marine Le Pen.
    Front National and British National Party MEPs sit together in the European Parliament as part of the informal Alliance of European Nationalist Movements, which has members from nine European parties.

    UK ConDem Government to Double Foreign Aid to Pakistan Despite Its Persecution of Christians

    ConDems to Double Foreign Aid to Pakistan Despite Its Persecution of Christians

    A memorial service was held last week for the Christian Pakistani minister who was shot dead for proposing reform to his country’s blasphemy laws, yet the ConDem government has sought to reward Pakistan’s persecution of Christians by doubling Britain’s foreign aid contribution to that country to a staggering £446 million a year.
    Pakistan’s first ever Minorities Minister Shahbaz Bhatti was shot dead on 2 March by gunmen who ambushed his car in broad daylight in the Pakistan capital, Islamabad.
    The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for his killing and called him a “blasphemer of Muhammad”. Mr Bhatti, who was the Pakistani cabinet's only Christian minister, had received death threats since 2009 for urging reform to the country’s blasphemy laws, which order the death sentence for anyone who insults Islam.
    On 4 January, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, who had also opposed the laws, was shot dead by one of his bodyguards. The murderer has been hailed by many in the country as a hero.
    Governor Taseer had backed a private members’ bill in parliament by Sherry Rehman, a female MP, to amend the blasphemy law in an attempt to make miscarriages of justice less likely and remove their death penalties. It is reported that a fatwa has been issued against Ms Rehman calling her the next candidate for murder.
    Critics say the blasphemy law has been used to persecute minority faiths. In particular, Christians, who make up an estimated 1.5 per cent of Pakistan's 185 million population, have been targeted.
    In response to the murder of Shahbaz Bhatti, the EU Parliament adopted a weak resolution on 10 March. This was largely declaratory and offered very little assistance to the beleaguered Christians of Pakistan.
    Nick Griffin MEP commented: "I note that our despicable Coalition government recently announced plans to double overseas aid to Pakistan to more than £445 million a year. They have not sought to attach any strings to help ensure religious freedom for Christians in that country.
    "The EU motion likewise will do little to help Christians being persecuted and killed by fanatics. Cardinal O'Brien has called for conditions to be attached to any aid payments, requiring a definite commitment to protection for Christians and other religious minorities.
    “I back him on that and welcome the strong stance of the Catholic Church on this, but would go further. I want conditions attached to trade agreements too. Christians under attack must be defended by all means at our disposal."

    The EU red tape that is drowning British businesses

    18th March 2011: The owner of a small herbal manufacturing company based in the North West is facing closure because of new EU legislation.


    Four employees at the company, which sells just one traditional herbal product which has been sold worldwide since the late 1800's, face losing their jobs in April due to the EU directive on traditional herbal products and the registration of such products.
    To register just the one product would cost in the region of £30,000 to £40,000 which the small company cannot afford, so the only alternative is to close.
    The owner of the compnay has written to Nick Griffin asking for help. He told the MEP:
     "We are not opposed to the E.U. Directive setting standards in an attempt to protect the public. However there is no flexibility, which would allow us to continue manufacturing as the cost is so prohibiting.
    The result will be that many traditional herbal products will disappear never to be replaced even though they have been used for centuries with good effect. The consequence will be no alternative other than pharmaceutical medicine, which will need a prescription putting extra pressure on the already over stretched NHS
    This legislation takes away choice – the choice of an individual to choose which kind of medication they take. Very few people if any die from a herbal overdose but how many people die from drug overdose or suffer massive side effects from drugs manufactured by large pharmaceutical companies.
    I realize that this EU directive was brought in before you became MEP,  however your intervention can change it and allow me and and many other small business owners to continue in business.
    The majority of our herbs are sold through registered colonic hydrotherapists who under the directive will not be allowed to prescribe herbal products to their patients.
    I would appreciate your comments but importantly your support in changing this EU directive so that we can continue to trade."
    Responding on behalf of Nick Griffin, his Constituency Office Manager Tina Wingfield wrote:
    "Thank you for your correspondence regarding the European Commission’s Traditional Herbal Medicines Directive (2004/24/EC).
    Nick Griffin is committed to using his status as a Member of the European Parliament to protect British businesses and UK consumers from the bureaucratic interference of the European Commission in matters which are rightfully the responsibility of our national government. As such, he is happy to support UK traders and consumers in their campaign against the imposition of restrictive limits on food supplements and herbs that threaten the survival of UK businesses and erode the freedom of consumer choice.
    Of equal and comparative concern to the Traditional Herbal Medicines Directive is the Commission’s Food Supplements Directive (2002/46/EC). Both of these Directives constitute unjustifiable and excessive EU interference in the consumer’s right of choice.
    Mr Griffin wrote to the European Commissioner, in September 2009, highlighting the concern amongst food supplements traders and consumers about the proposed introduction of restrictive limits on supplement sales. He pointed to research conducted by the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association HFMA, the National Association of Health Stores and the Food Standards Agency, which indicates that if the new harmonised levels fall even modestly below current UK levels, higher potency supplements with current annual sales of at least £100 million will be imperilled.
    Over 700 independent health stores could, moreover, be forced to close nationally, with a potential total loss of business of nearly £200m and the resultant loss of hundreds of jobs. Consumer safety could also be put risk because if consumers are unable to purchase the popular high strength supplements they are accustomed to (and which have been accepted as safe and appropriately labelled by the Food Standards Agency), there is a significant risk that they will try turn to alternative products and sources, many of which will be unregulated and therefore potentially dangerous.
    In light of this and in the interests of protecting the UK market and maintaining consumer choice, Mr Griffin urged the Commission not to bring forward restrictive proposals that would adversely affect the continued availability of supplements in the UK.
    The same arguments apply to traditional herbs and Mr Griffin is monitoring developments in relation to these two Directives. He will be pleased to offer his support to any initiatives that address the excessive restrictions they impose, and thus restore freedom of choice over food supplements and traditional herbs for UK traders and consumers."

    Once Great Britain The Benefits Riviera Of The World

    The Benefits Riviera Of The World  PDF Print E-mail
    Written by BC 1959   
    benefit-agency-sign_120_x_120Credit Crunch... what Credit Crunch? The world's top spot for the good life, where homes, and everything in them, including ash trays, was highlighted by the British National Party almost a decade ago, is getting even more comfortable.
    It sounds like a great place to visit, and millions have decided to stay. So where is it? Here of course. Many of these visitors cannot speak the native language, one of over Fifty spoken here, thus the ever so kind tax payers have decided, at least by their voting patterns, to pay for them to have their wishes translated into English.
    The cost? Nothing really, well, not to them anyway. The taxpayers, easily herded into ''political gas chambers'' with broken promises and wild ideas of equality, pay around £116,000 per week collectively for this ''service.''
    Happy to vote for illegal and horrific wars, the people living in The Benefits Riviera of the world, formerly known as Great Britain, also enjoy helping in excess of 180,000 immigrants, sorry, visitors, some of them ''health tourists,'' to the tune of £78,000,000 per year.
    Money going to support visitors' children still in their homeland, while one or both parents are enjoying life here, is estimated to cost more than £20,000,000. every year. The number of these types of claims, have risen by 20 per cent in the past year alone, and is in reference to Eastern Europe only. Of course, this does not even include visitors from Africa, Asia, the Far East, South America, China, or the West Indies.
    Our system is rigged to promote ''equality,'' and that now includes literally anyone with enough Chutzpah to ''enjoy our hospitality'' from anywhere in the world. Why wouldn't anyone take this opportunity? Many people have been driven from here, and other Western countries for decades, with dreams of making a better life.
    Some of course have returned, not wanting to admit that the grass is greener on the other side. Having said that, people taking their families to shores of gold, and seas of fun and prosperity, means that something is wrong here, or from whence they came does it not? Except for those not of indigenous European descent, there are not that many options left open to them, and this also goes for those whom made Africa a civilised and crime free, prosperous continent in the last century.
    And now, the Benefits Riviera of planet earth, so loved and hated in equal terms by millions, has a gaping hole in its institutions. That hole, which includes what was once a world renowned health service, armed forces, and police force, sits alone, begging for help from someone, somewhere.
    It sits alone, in the northern part of Europe, broken, crime ridden, and helpless. Still, we have some heart warming things to fill our evenings with, as millions starve, freeze to death, and find nothing relevant in terms of jobs or careers, self employment and future prospects. Yes, we have a coalition government, made up of ''opposing ideologies.'' They are different, some call themselves Liberals, others Socialist, and some Conservative, with the odd few apparently very worried about being integrated into the EU.
    Yes, they are different, they are different to us, they are ''gold plated'' against poverty. They are also different in many other things also. They differ from the millions who come here, looking for a better life, but want so much to bring equality and fairness to society to them.
    After all, it won't be long before an immigrant, or one from immigrant ancestry, takes the ''top job,'' and become Prime Minister. Not of Britain of course, but of England. Scotland and Wales will of course be able to enjoy this idea, as they are now preparing to depart from the ancient Britanicus that at one time, was one single entity. Soon, we will have our very own Barrack Obama. Equality would then be total. The Marxists, so wonderfully financed by the foreign bankers of old, would then be a happy bunch.
    Marxism is of course, along with it's later creation, the ''Frankfurt School,'' the bedrock of the whole sham now playing at a City, town or village near you. This bedrock was not particularly stable though, as the whole house of cards was financed by those who will soon, show how ruthless they are.
    How so? It's like this: Super capitalists, mainly immigrants themselves, embedded in Europe and New York, desperately needed a vehicle to drive their plan of world fiscal and resource domination into being. Once this was achieved, so-called Socialist revolutions could then explode all over the world.
    Now they have completed this, many who voted Labour, joined unions, and basically threw the baby out with the bath water by despising their traditions and culture, will suffer severely. Nothing is safe, and no amount of Students demonstrating, or people moaning in pubs etc, will stop what is coming if solid action is not forthcoming. Our little island may be the benefits Riviera of the world, but it is simply unsustainable.
    With so-called ''main-stream'' ideology, comes propaganda, and now it is all coming home to roost. Marxism and basic Social and Capital dogma, has been proven to be one and the same. It's all now becoming clearer, and our little nation, once the bread basket of the world in sheer engineering and export terms, is being broken, smashed into pieces, and everyone will become a victim.
    Now we have only one choice, and that is to take a lead from all the opposing groups, and polarise our efforts no matter what. Somehow, and somewhere and sometime soon, very soon, there will have to be a single entity on the world wide stage, one that will reach every individual, group, and political party where-ever they are on earth.
    We have little time, so watch this space, as it is becoming apparent that a legal representative with a recognised diplomatic status, to push for the rights and renaissance of our kind, will become a reality.

    Race Gestapo EHRC Must Pay British National Party’s Court Costs in Full

    EHRC Must Pay British National Party’s Court Costs in Full

    Nick Griffin has welcomed the ruling that the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) must pay the British National Party’s court costs in full as a “victory for freedom”.
    “It is a massive victory for the British National Party and freedom and a crushing blow for the Equality and Human Rights Commission and Trevor Phillips' PC bullies,” he said.
    Mr Griffin’s comments follow the High Court judgement ruling that the EHRC must pay all the costs incurred by him, Simon Darby and Tanya Lumby during their brave defence against the EHRC’s attempts to seize the Party's assets and throw the defendants into prison.
    The ruling of Lord Justice Moore-Bick and Mr Justice Ramsey is a further crushing defeat for the Commission and a personal humiliation for Trevor Phillips and Simon Woolley, who at the start of proceedings boasted on TV that they were going to close the British National Party down.
    "Thanks to the staunch generosity of so many of our members and supporters and the magnificent efforts of our legal team, their attack on democracy and freedom failed utterly," said Mr Griffin.
    "The British National Party is still very much alive and kicking. We've built up a legal team which can go head to head with the most powerful opponents and beat them."
    On being told that EHRC would be forced to pay its costs in full, Simon Darby said, "I told them they would never beat me or the British National Party, but they simply wouldn't listen. Now these people are going to pay the price for persecuting Nationalists. The question has to be asked as to whether this discredited quango will survive the next round of government cuts."
    Exactly how much the EHRC will have to pay must now be assessed in a long and complicated procedure that will take some months. When we get our money back, it will make a healthy contribution to our war chest for next year's Assembly election in London, where the EHRC is/was based.
    It will, however, come too late to help finance this May's PR-election breakthrough drives in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. To fund these campaigns, we have to rely on the generosity of our supporters, so to celebrate our victory over Trevor Phillips and to continue to invest in the winning team, you can donate using all major credit and debit cards, or by PayPal, by going here.

    Operation Fightback – Help Us Fight the Anti-Democratic Regime in the UK

    Operation Fightback – Help Us Fight the Anti-Democratic Regime

    Three ways to help the British National Party fight back against the Labour Party's Stalinist approach to politics. 
    The hotel set to host the British National Party’s Scottish manifesto launch has cancelled the Party’s booking after an anti-democratic hate campaign by a Labour MP.  
    Eric Joyce, the Labour MP for Falkirk, posted instructions on his blog telling people to email the hotel’s general manager to request that he “refuse bookings from the British National Party”. 
    One commenter on Mr Joyce’s blog wrote that he had spread his message around on social networking sites, and another boasted of sending a “threatening email” to the hotel. 
    Eric Joyce, who was the first MP to claim more than £1 million in parliamentary expenses, commented on the decision to cancel the event as “awesome” and “brilliant”. He also told one commenter on Twitter who respectfully questioned whether his actions were a sign of “a healthy democracy” to “grow up”. 
    British National Party Scotland Press Officer David Orr reported that Paul Bray, general manager of MacDonald Hotels’ Inchyra Grange hotel in Falkirk, where the manifesto was set to be launched, phoned him just after 5 p.m. yesterday to tell him that the event was cancelled and that the Party would no longer be welcome at the hotel. 
    Mr Bray had received phone calls threatening him with loss of future business if the conference went ahead, Mr Orr said.  
    Despite the fact that the conference was booked under the name “British National Party Scotland”, MacDonald Hotels posted on their Twitter page yesterday that “The hotel was not aware of the true nature of the meeting until today.” 
    David Orr said it was a clear case of discrimination: “If this had been a Muslim event or any other gathering of religion or ethnic minorities, this would result in criminal charges being brought on a ‘hate crime’.”  
    The British National Party would like to assure its supporters that this cowardly anti-democratic attack on our party has had the effect of motivating us all and focuses our drive and determination to new levels that these cowards could not even imagine.
    They do not understand the mentality of the Patriot. When faced with this kind of cowardly gutter politics, we fight back!
    You can help in three ways:   
    FIGHTBACK OPTION 1: 
    Let’s show Eric Joyce and the Labour Party that the only result of their tyranny is more growth for the British National Party. Donate to our Regional Assemblies election campaign fund today, and imagine the look on his face when our donations barometer goes up because of his anti-democratic actions! 
    http://communications.bnp.org.uk/donatenow_button.jpg 

    FIGHTBACK OPTION 2:
    Email the general manager of MacDonald Hotels, Paul Bray, and tell him that cancelling a legitimate political event and showing that MacDonald Hotels do not support democracy and do the bidding of the Labour Party over and above the freedom of the Scottish people will cost them more money in lost revenue that they will believe. We intend to spread the message of boycotting McDonald Hotels to millions of people who value political freedom in Scotland!
    FIGHTBACK OPTION 3:

    The man responsible – disgraced MP Eric Joyce
    His achievements as an MP: he has set an extraordinary new record by claiming more than £200,000 expenses in a single year. Last year he billed the taxpayer for a staggering £200,986, despite having previously pledged to curb his expenses.
    He is a convicted drink-driver.
    Nicknamed “Air miles Eric”, he clocked up £45,411 in travel costs. The figure is equal to nearly £1,600 for every week Parliament sits.
    His claim also included £19,176 for his second home, £10,018 for "communicating" with constituents, £24,337 for office costs and £102,044 for staff.
    He prompted outrage last year by likening middle-class voters to paedophiles, drunks and liars, in a rant on a left-wing website.
    Joyce’s record claim emerged as official figures revealed that MPs went on a £90-million taxpayer-funded spending spree in the run-up to the election last year. 
    The payments are on top of MPs’ basic £65,000 salaries. The figures show that MPs brushed aside public fury over their expenses and carried on claiming right up until the election.
    This man is an absolute disgrace. Please contact his constituency office, and politely but officially lodge your disgust about his anti-democratic actions:
    Constituency office:  Tel:  01324 823200
    Email him at: eric@ericjoyce.co.uk and ericjoycemp@parliament.uk 
    Print your email, and send it to his constituency office: 
    Eric Joyce, Disgraced MP, 37 Church Walk, Denny, FK6 6DF

    BBC Blows Licence Tax Payers’ Money on “Diversity Census”

    “Too White” BBC Blows Licence Payers’ Money on “Diversity Census”

    By Stephen Palmer –at the British National Party Newsroom
    Despite facing some of the biggest cutbacks in its history, the BBC has chosen to spend licence payers’ money on a “diversity census” of its staff instead of funding programming.
    Much like the national census, the BBC’s questionnaire asks a series of personal questions about employees’ ethnicity, religion and disabilities, but it also questions them about their sexual orientation.
    The intrusive survey, issued to the BBC’s 17,000-plus hapless staff, has been welcomed by homosexual groups, who called on other publicly funded organisations to do the same.
    It is believed that the move is being undertaken because of the so-called Equality Act, which requires public-sector employers to monitor whether certain groups within its staff are at a “disadvantage”.
    The news came at the same time as the producer of the ITV show Midsomer Murders was suspended for telling an interviewer that fictional Midsomer “wouldn’t be an English village” if it contained non-white characters.
    Conversely, recent comments by former Radio 4 controller Mark Damazer, that shows such as the Today programme and The Archers are “too white”, were met with no such media hysteria.
    We in the British National Party recognise the obvious fact that “diversity” is simply a euphemism for “fewer white people”, specifically fewer heterosexual white males. To spend the public’s money on such a racist, heterophobic and bigoted survey only reiterates the BBC’s position as an enemy of normalcy and the British people.
    It is ironic that many of the same BBC staff who champion “diversity”, “enrichment” and “multiculturalism” will very likely lose their jobs because they don’t tick the “right” boxes.
    After the way the corporation has treated the British National Party over the years, however, it is unlikely they will get much sympathy from our supporters.

    As British Nationalists, we say NOT IN OUR NAME !

    Not in Our Name PDF Print E-mail
    Written by BC1959   
    coffin2_120_x_179As our ''Government'' and in fact, the whole of the British establishment, sign the death warrant of yet another foreign country, they also sign the death warrants of future civilian victims and armed forces members.
    Many well read, and intelligent people, not just Nationalists, know this is insane, and deeply worrying. Why? The obvious reason is that if the plan to bomb Libyan forces controlled by Colonel Gaddafi, turns into a full thrown conflict, then imagine what another wave of immigrants, angry at ''the West'' will do.
    The other reason is patently obvious also, and that is, the so-called ''international community'' and some other Arab states, are all embroiled in a war on EVERY independent nation, and the leaders of the international community, have no desire whatsoever, to relinquish their power and wealth.
    It mattered not one jot what the Gaddafi regime was doing to its people not that long ago, and Britain even allowed the Lockerbie bomber to return.
    Bahrain and Middle Eastern nations linked to this country's arms industry, are valuable to big business. Britain faces a dilemma in dealing with the current crisis in Bahrain and Libya, as Bahrain is as ''autocratic'' as Libya, but Libya is now a pretext to a further engineered schism, with a view to ridding those whose uses have been done and dusted. This country's links to dubious regimes, just as America's, is there for all to see in historical terms, but that won't stop the money elite from dumping on them when the time is right.
    If Bahrain suddenly became unstable, one can only imagine the consequences of having no launch pad, for military activities of the US and UK security community. This would be a considerable disaster, and could then force the horse whispering ''allies'' of America and the UK, to pul strings, and once again use sheer greed, and military gain, to usher in a deadly attack on even that country.
    In 2003, on the eve of the Iraqi war, Turkey vetoed an American led invasion from the north, through Turkish territory. If a similar thing were to happen in Bahrain, then Bahrain would become a victim to the ''democratic forces'' of America, Britain, and Israel. In fact, could that 2003 veto, be the VERY reason, so many government officials and MP's want Turkey to become a member of the EU?
    Bahrain announced that MP's recently voted to ''jail for up to five years, any Bahraini who deals directly with Israel''. With the massive Israeli lobby in America, Britain, and much of the west having to doff the cap to influences and directives from powerful Jewish leaders and spokesmen, yet another creepy aspect rears it's ugly head. Bahrain pushed through a proposed new law, ''banning any form of relations with Israel or its people at all levels, government, business or private''. Penalties would also include fines of up to BD10,000 and business leaders or owners dealing with Israel, or selling or promoting its products, ''could lose their licences for up to 10 years''.
    This picture then, paints a thousand words, as we all know that what Israel wants, Israel gets. So where will our armed forces personnel be in this whirlpool of tit-for-tat, open political and socio-economic warfare?
    Probably in the firing line, along with thousands of others in the western hemisphere, used as pawns by their treacherous political leaders. In fact, how is an Islamic community going to take the simple fact that, one one hand, British MP's on all sides have ''friends of Israel,'' and promote Zionist influences and wishes at every turn, and on the other hand, invite millions of their brethren to come here, and like the Communist Ed Miliband, wish to offer them every available opportunity, and garner their mass votes from an increasing volume of immigrants from the Islamic community?
    Both sides will eventually, clash, with poor old indigenous white folks slap in the middle of it all. We want nothing to do with either pro-Israeli duplicity, or pro-Islamic boot licking.
    Not in our name the deaths on either side, and especially our brave soldiers already fighting for big business, and the bankers. Not in our name, the young lad from 2nd battalion, The Parachute Regiment, who is the latest brave Briton to die in this war of foreign interests and empire building. If this next conflict escalates, and it could, there will be thousands more like him.
    Yet more of the cream of our nation(s), dying in their very prime will be only the tip of the iceberg. As indigenous Britons, we face both leaders from the Jewish community, and the Muslim community, getting together and crying wolf yet again, meeting as they are planning to do, to ''tell'' leaders not to encourage deals with so-called ''Far Right'' parties, or give them any oxygen of publicity.
    If that is the case, then as Nationalists, we say NOT IN OUR NAME, the wars and conflict that will come to our shores and foreign ones also. Not in our name, the hate filled arrogance, used to foster in-fighting and treachery that splinters our communities and political will to fight enemies, embedded in our government and institutions.
    And certainly, NOT IN OUR NAME, the destruction of other peoples countries, where innocent men, women, and children die for sheer greed and a land-grab of resources.
    The whole of the political and elitist establishment, past and present, may well have to find new shores themselves, because within a short period of time, the country will be in the biggest mess it has ever been in. They can go where they want to, as long as it is not within a thousand miles of our shores.
    And when the day of retribution does come, it will be a case of NOT IN OUR NAME, because all they have done, they have done knowingly, and all they will reap, they have reaped in their name, and for their own benefit, and by their own actions will they be known.
