      Hi, perhaps the message should be to end the license fee (and make them accountable to those wishing to subscribe to them).

      Hat tip to Rufus McDufus for helping to keep this site going. I hope Alan is well and thank him for all his efforts if he has decided to move on with other things.

    It is Easter and of course the BBC runs a pro-Islam story for Easter. On the BBC homepage they have an image of a statue of Mary and the baby Jesus with the headline: Why is Mary so important in Christianity and Islam? When you click on the link you find it is yet another attempt by the BBC to promote and normalise Islam:

        Suppose that Esther, Ruth, Deborah, Zipporah, Miriam, Hannah, Elizabeth were all kidnapped and kept as slaves by Boko Haram way back.
        Only Jesus Himself would have ensured His mum wasn`t taken as a child bride, had Islam raised its head in His time.
        Poor Mary Magdalene would have had no chance, nor Tamar.

      Can someone tell me if this intense force feeding of Islam by the BBC is in collusion with our security services and the government because they are so petrified at what they have created. I find it disgusting that they are so pro Islam. Although I’m becoming grumpy and angry about everything. Especially the BBC on camera presenters. What a useless bunch of non entities who earn vast amounts of money that they simply do not deserve. The other advice I need is who in the f..k do I vote for. Labour is a complete no go zone but given the dismal performance of May and Rudd together with the entire useless bunch of the Tory dummy sucking cabinet who could have moved to get her out, I’m left confused, bewildered and angry.

        May and Cameron have taken them to a place where they stand for nothing apart from what their media advisors tell them is the right thing to do.

        No convictions, no principles and absolutely nothing to convince me that they have a plan for getting this country out of the Islam obsessed, PC following, SJW appeasing, free speech destroying mess that we are in.

        Fear not Moodswing, you’re not on your own ! I’ve found it happening to me over the past 5 years or so, even to the point of becoming the proverbial letter writer to the papers – morphing into Mrs Disgusted from Tunbridge Wells ! The government, rising prices, migration, the feckless young, have always been targets for decades of moaning and whingeing, but times have rapidly changed since the Millennium, with the rise of Islam, political correctness, health & safety, unparalleled migration and Brexit. Clearly Brexit would never have got off the ground if migration had been quelled, but we are where we are now, and so there is more to be grumpy about.

      What a load of utter shit pots-excuse my anger, but how dare this supposed British Corporation allow itself to promote such antagonistic progs. The Government as such no longer controls the Media-those that do very sadly now control the Government of this rather sad small nation sitting on the northern edge of Europe with only a pitiful band of Sociolistic/Communists warngling in Westminster. The Media and in particular the BBC have not the slightest regard for the palace of the people, they have ranged themselves against particularly those that voted OUT of the EU. Let us all pray and hope that a new dawn might break over this land, but I hear you call ‘is there the will to change direction?’

    A previous blogger suggests the dearth of Christian films over the Easter period may be due to muslim control over programming at the beebistan.

    I have no idea, but what is certain is that increasingly we will see the ascendance of muslim power, and the muslim vote, just as we’ve had grey, gay, bme power / vote etc.

    The recent Channel 4 Dispatches highlighted the phenomenon when the lobby group MEND told its members that muslim voters were the ‘king-makers’ due to the heavy concentration of 3 million muslims in certain key areas.

    So in future you can expect all political parties to kow-tow ever more to muslims.

    Corbyn and May are already heroically showing the way.

    This has been described as the second stage of Islamic conquest.

    (A pusillanimous Church – that believes in nothing much except being nice and tolerant to those who wish us harm or seek to conquer – doesn’t help much. It’s an open goal for any cult with a bit of self-belief.)

      Yes Vlad the second stage of the Muslim conquest is making its way throughout-the last leader of Lybia claimed that Islam did not need swords to fight the battle it would be won through the wombs of the women-and so now we see it growing with one the most popular names in the UK as Muhammed or Mahammed not sure which but lets agree its the stealth of Islam creeping across us. Countryfile wants to promote the opportunity for a young prog-presenter-who do they show as prospective candidates-you guessed it majority Muslims and othe Asians types and only one white girl-what does that tell us? What do they think it tells us.Subjugation of how the public in general must think, the propaganda of Multicuturalism is making its headway.

        Cadbury of course, aside from the Easter issue, is totally halal compliant, and their goods stayed mainly on the shelves.

      JB the Easter Egg packaging has been commented on by lots of people. Our Christianity is being airbrushed by stealth, but to have manufacturers join in the travesty is beyond the pale. Sadly its mainly those of a certain age who are noticing this, and yes we can boycott the companies, but it has to be done in the millions not just the few hundred, because the pinch won’t be felt.

    Anyone here recall how I predicted some months ago that we would be hearing a lot more about ‘decolonisation’? I stated that it would become the next big buzzphrase, after, ‘racism’ to promote thinly-disguised anti-white, anti-British sentiments i.a. On the surface it will merely purport to be some sort of anti-discrimination thing. But oh, ‘the sins of the past’ hover above ever so (un)subtly…
    Well, the next big step has been taken, as you can read if you ‘take the Telegraph’ (today’s copy): ‘Cambridge students step up decolonisation campaign’.
    Even the classics society, it is reported, is having a look at ‘what decolonisation would look like’ in its curriculum! (Roman colonisation?) Some universities have resisted, but various faculties in Cambridge, including in the sciences, seem to be playing along.
    Getting Oxford to take down a statue of Rhodes is a firm objective. Presumably, this was modelled on the successful campaign at the university of Cape Town.
    Personally, I think resistance or not, we will be hearing a great deal more about ‘decolonisation’, when it spills from the campuses into the mainstream.
    It plays heavily on white guilt and has found a wonderful trigger word – an opportunity not to be missed.
    A footnote: A white lady has been jailed for three years in SA for calling a black policeman insulting names. While I agree that that behaviour is well out of order, the sentence contrasts sharply with what has happened to Julius Malema, ie nothing. He, it appears, can threaten whites with horrific violence -you can find the details easily – but this is apparently not ‘hate speech’. And he is a key opposition leader in SA. I mention this in passing, as double standards are falling firmly into place there (and here?).
    Racism has many faces. Not all of them are white. A little study of human history everywhere will show this. Ditto slavery. Just do a little serious research.
    But however much the situation has improved, there will be self-promoting opportunists, waiting to make hay from the past…

      Re colonisation, indeed the Classics can look at Roman colonisation but there were others, notably British and European (boo, hiss) which, though so despised by the Beeb et al, did leave countries, previously with primitive cultures, in a far better state with education, good health and standards of living. But what about other colonisation, are they as equally bad – well not according to the Beeb. For example, the first wave of Islamisation of North Africa and parts of Europe (apparently the Crusades trying to RECLAIM, not conquer, lands they previously controlled is a BAD THING – pace “1066 and all that”). Then the Ottoman colonisation of much of Europe – again, was this a bad thing? It appears we can have good and bad colonialism – who decides which is which? It appears to be the Beeb and their ilk, and they certainly are not on the side of Western Civilisation.

        I remember a beebistan ‘documentary’ (i.e. propaganda) about the rapid spread of islam in the early centuries, gushing enthusiastically that it was a testament to its vitality and virility. (No doubt the same virility as is evident in Rochdale, Rotherham, Cologne et al.)

        Funny, when it’s other countries or faiths conquering by sword, fire and blood, it’s vitality; when it’s the mostly benign spread of the British Empire mainly by trade, or Christianity mainly by missionaries, schools and hospitals – it’s evil imperialism.

        (This is not to ignore abuses, but they were the exception rather than the rule.)

        Double standards yet again.

      Theresa May calls Decolonisation the “Implementation Period“.

      It seems bonkers for Cambridge students to fight for independence for countries once ruled over by Cambridge educated Bureaucrats in London, who after decolonisation of the British Empire in the sixties then found alternative jobs in Brussels in 1973. Now for the first time Cambridge students face the prospect of no Empire to rule over, so they turn into mad Pro-European imperialist hypocrites fighting against Britain returning to the more multiracial Commonwealth, but without any jobs for useless Cambridge students.

      The Commonwealth nations have either at best not regarded colonisation as a bad thing, or at worst, with the exception of the Irish Republic and the United States, forgiven Britain and the Queen, who is still the ruler of 16 Realms and 100 Territories, comprising the largest territory under the rule of a single person in the 21st Century (Putin comes second) as well as being the Head of the Commonwealth. Also there are 30 territorial flags in the world with a Union Jack.

      So we have the fact that the Colonies of the British Empire in the 19th Century, the Dominions of the British Commonwealth of the 20th Century and the Realms of the Royal Commonwealth of the of the 21st Century. All comprise the biggest Empire-Dominion-Realm in the World.

      What next, marches against colonisation by students at York University, expulsion of Italian, German, Danish, French and Belgian students.

      71 Yorkshire colonised by Romans
      406 Yorkshire decolonised from Romans
      450 Yorkshire colonised by Angles
      867 Yorkshire colonised by Danes
      954 Yorkshire decolonised from Danes
      1066 Yorkshire colonised by Normans
      1973 Yorkshire colonised by Europe
      2021 Yorkshire decolonised from Europe

      Please notice (see above) that in 2021,Yorkshire will still be colonised by the Angles of England and the Normans in the House of Lords.

Well she was saying Brexit had made people more racist and she had heard comments like go back to where you came from. Of course the BBC were loving this as you can imagine. Comments such as this are considered racist, but conversely when in South Africa and Zimbabwe, when white farmers who have farmed the land for over 200 years are forcibly removed and many murdered, have there possessions and land stolen by government or militia the western press in particular the BBC virtually ignore it.

        The Steven Lawrence murder, like any other murder, has to be unreservedly condemned. Like any other murder. To ascribe a racial dimension to this where one social group is innocent and another is guilty by implication is unacceptable.
        (I recall a photograph of Steven L raising a fist in an apparent black power salute, which has entirely vanished from the media. I have always wondered what that says? )
        To denigrate an entire police force as a result, smearing ALL officers with the same brush, as it were, is unfair and bizarre. Why the powers that be endorsed the McPherson report…?
        To promote his mother to the peerage is equally bizarre. There are many murders and many murderers of all colours, shapes and sizes. They all have parents.
        Anyway, I see Cressida Dick is telling us WHY violence happens: social media. An interviewee on ITV news says it was the cuts. In the US it is ‘the guns’. Excuses, excuses for an ever-deteriorating moral situation. And, of course, no one is to blame for their behaviour. It’s always someone else’s fault. Or something in society.
        Strange, that in a ‘me, me’ society, it’s never really me wot did that thing I did…

          I was thinking of Stephen Lawrence when the report qas dropping about the H&S obsessed firemen who declined racing to the aid of the Manchester bombing.

          Many were quick to point out that it wasn’t the firemen on the ground but just the nasty top management. Funny but when the Lawrence report branded the police institutionally racist I didn’t hear the same apologists for the ordinary policemen.

          Personally, I agree with the repory about the firemen. Their militant union’s obsession with regulation and H&S has hobbled theses people to the point where they don’t actually fight fire and don’t even appear on the top 10 list of most dangerous job.

          Given the women they employ have differeny entry criteria, it’s a good job they don’t carry people out of buildings anymore.

          The yobbish culture of the Australian test team and their coach was echoed by the Australian press and condoned by Cricket Australia in their selection of Warner as vice captain. The players’ crass and gloating behaviour in press conferences was celebrated when it should have been condemned.

          Now it has reached it’s logical conclusion and it’s suddenly all shock horror and, surpise, surprise, the thin veneer of machismo of these self-appointed strong men of cricket rapidly melts away to reveal the blubbing crybabies that lie beneath. Nothing new there – they always resort to whingeing when things aren’t going their way. And as for changing the culture to follow the NZ model (you know, the sporting approach ruthlessly mocked onfield by the Australians in their last series)….don’t hold your breath.

    Biased BBC majoring today on the underwhelming observation that children from ‘underprivileged’ families do less well at school. Its all those budding doctors and enginner parents who somehow had a bad break.
    Then the BBC bang on about how Southern England children do wores than Northern England children. Mmmmmm.
    Funny thing is, because of the Unions and national pay scales, teachers in the south earn the same as thise in the north. But in the north, a teacher salary is pretty good compared with other workers, so the north should get the best teachers, yes? In the south, recruitment can be very difficult indeed.
    So…..best teachers, worst results. The bBBC don’t seem to have noticed.

    A couple of points I would like the BBC , Guardian and virtue signallers to take in .

    1; It’s not the Brexiteers that are making the EU nationals fear for their future here . It’s you, the BBC ,with James O Brien and all the other Remoaners who keep telling them that racism has gone rampant , the country has turned nasty and fascists are taking over and are going to kick them all out .
    Try , beeboids , to stick to the truth and stop worrying the EU nationals .

    2; Their future here will be MORE stable if we limit or stop immigration .
    Notice how one wave of immigrants come in , then are replaced by a second wave , then a third and as the EU expands itself , a fourth , fifth , sixth , tenth , twentieth .
    So if we stop immigration now , the EU nationals will be secure than if we stay in the EU and it expands through Turkey , Ukraine , Albania , all the way to North Korea .

    So cool yourself down , Beeboids , Remoaners , Job gob and virtues signallers , don’t tell half truths or total lies and let the EU nationals live in peace .

      Leo McKinstry in Today’s Mail wrote an article worth reading, concerning especially George Orwell and HIS ENGLAND. I was unaware of this book by O, but it looks worth a read. The article shows up the Blairs and the Cleggs of this world in no uncertain fashion, and why what we mean when we talk about patriotism, this is a GOOD patriotism. Makes you happy you voted Brexit (if you had any doubts) otherwise you could chuck all of Orwell in the bin.
      Think I’ll send May and Rudd a copy. Just in case Brexit doesn’t entirely mean Brexit and Freedom’s just a word…
      Won’t send Beeb bigwigs a copy: they wouldn’t understand it. Worse, they wouldn’t want to understand it.

    I watched the BBC News summary a few hours ago. Almost every bit of news had Muslims in it…
    1. The “Beatles” lovable Muslim duo.
    2. Russian nerve gas (very rushed report as the BBC had to get onto Muslim victims)
    3. Muslim victims in Gaza

    Then local news had…
    1. The Iranian jailed (ex BBC journalist) Muslim woman (victim)

    There was another article about Muslims in there somewhere but I was trying to put my foot through the TV so I forgot the details.

Maybe a trip to the ECHR where those liberal luvvies will state that by depriving them of citizenship their ‘uman rights have indeed be violated. The wonderfully compassionate Mrs Rudd could then, reluctantly, give them citizenship back and they are brought to the UK for trial. “Aah, but..”, says our Shiner-creature, “…with all the bad publicity there is no chance of a fair trial”. “Indeed,” states one of our marvellously liberal judges, “Case dismissed”. Then the Shiner-creature can get his 30 pieces of silver by suing on their behalf for wrongful arrest, the terrorists get anonymity and a council house each (plus another one for their wives – each) and they all live happily ever after; well except for 60 million seething real Brits!

    Maybe we should be the more mature party and give up on the tit-for-tat stuff with Russia, Aeroflot etc. for the moment. Does it serve any further purpose? Whatever the truth (and if it turns out ‘they’ did break Art.1 of the Chemical Weapons Convention, we can resume the debate, and multilateral enforcement will take its course) ‘they’ will have got the message by now bigtime. For one thing, we can’t be sure who ‘they’ are yet. The bigwigs there have no option but to stand firm as they see it, if the escalation continues.
    At this stage we don’t need to drift into Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0 or have some irritated Russian patriot Colonel push a button without Kremlin authority, ending forever this Green and Pleasant/ sceptered Isle.
    Having a Trident out there somewhere to retaliate won’t be much of a comfort.

        I’ve certainly no desire to say nice things about Putin he doesn’t deserve, or sweet talk murder. I was saying let’s wait for the current investigation by the OPCW to take its course. Also, watch Peter Hitchens’ video about Putin and how his ‘state’ is rather different to our ‘state’.
        Any one of the issues you mention has two sides; from our point of view the baddy is always obvious.
        So, we all know Putin had Litvineko killed by Luguvoy.. Or do we? Was polonium actually put in by Mr S. from Italy? You could make a good case…
        We all know that Putin ordered the Russians to invade Crimea. Was there an earlier statement by Z. Brezhinski that it was a US objective to have a base in Crimea by 2015? Didn’t quite happen, but interesting to note, and how that could be perceived by ‘them’.
        Look at how the former Warsaw Pact ‘buffer’ has vanished, frequently to turn into a NATO state. Who’s been doing the expanding…? The other way around, we could have Putin looking across the channel from France…
        All this is actually irrelevant, though. I was saying: there are always risks to escalation with nuclear armed states. For Kim, Trump, Putin, whoever. If you get it right, phew! But if you get it wrong…
        So let’s see if the ‘proper channels’ work.
        And above all, let’s not be distracted from the actual invasion of Europe, currently in progress, and for the potential for that to grow massively in the near future. Certain media are softening us up daily
        for this, with the same enthusiasm they have to ‘get Putin’.

    Gotta love Owen Jones…the useful idiot that gives and gives….when it’s Trump or Farage or the Mail he is happy to cry ‘Fascist’ and ‘Nazi’…..and claim they are creating the atmosphere that breeds ‘hate’….

    Who has fanned the flames of fascism? Our politicians and newspapers
    They pour the petrol and then wonder why it burns. Fascism is on the rise in the west, and it is emboldened, legitimised and fuelled by “mainstream” politicians and newspapers. When we mourn a hero like Bernard Kenny – who courageously tried to stop a fascist terrorist murdering Jo Cox – we have to ask ourselves: who are those with power and influence who helped create the conditions in which racists and fascists breed?

    “Cannot believe we’re seeing Nazi salutes in 21st century America,” tweets Nigel Farage about Charlottesville, dragging a can of petrol behind him.
    Trump’s initial refusal to attribute blame to racists and fascists after a far-right terrorist attack – his subsequent coerced denunciation is worthless, and was followed by his retweet of a leading “alt-rightist” – underlines why those marching in Charlottesville see him as their leader.
    Yes, racists and fascists are enabled and empowered by elites on both sides of the Atlantic; and yes, not just by their hatred, but by an economic order that generates needless misery and insecurity, which the bigoted can exploit.

    They are the guilty men – the hatred, the chaos and the violence is on them. And as the racists and the fascists continue to march and unleash violent chaos, their enablers must be held accountable.

    Not so keen when the jackboot is on the other foot and his new found love of Der Fuhrer is being questioned as Lord Sugar tweeted this satirical and accurate attack on Corbyn……for which he has come under severe attack by the likes of Jones….

    Screen-Shot-2018-03-31-at-12.46.18.png

    Is Owen Jones mad, deluded, so wrapped up in his tiny, tiny little world that reality is something completely unknown to him?

    He whines that The Sun has told terrible lies about him…..and yet here is exactly what the Sun said …and it’s exactly what Jones said…..

    ‘Meanwhile, The Sun can reveal lefty cheerleader Owen Jones accused enemies of Mr Corbyn of “weaponising anti-Semitism” in an astonishing rant posted online.

    Speaking at a hard left Momentum rally in Portsmouth on Thursday night the mouthy Guardian writer said only a “minority” of people on the Left hated Jews.

    He ranted: “There is a minority of people on the left who are anti-Semitic.

    There are also people using that and weaponising that issue to portray the whole left as anti-Semitic and that’s false”. ‘

    Here is what Jones said in the article that the Sun reported on…

    ‘A small minority of people on the left hold anti-Semitic views. A wider group of people deny that this anti-Semitism exists at all….every issue seems like an attack on Jeremy Corbyn. And in the sense that anti-Semitism is indeed being weaponised – that opponents of the Labour leadership are using the issue as a convenient attack line to undermine it – they are correct.’

    So, I’ve compared and contrasted what you said and what the Sun reported and found that the nasty, dishonesty little runt is you Owen.

    Just another attempt by leftwing agitators to demonise the rightwing Press….something the BBC is always happy to help out with….and of course this justifies Sugar’s satirical tweet that noted Corbyn’s ‘blindspot’ on anti-semitism…here is Owen Jones saying the claims of anti-semitism are invented so as to undermine Corbyn’s leadership….nothing to see here…..anti-semitism is just in a few ‘pockets’ of the Left no doubt.

    Wonder if Jones has some issues himself with secret cabals running the world?…

    “The British press is a very sophisticated political lobbying operation, which masquerades as ‘the free press’, run by very politically motivated moguls who use their dominance of media and think they can get across political ideas and achieve political objectives,” he said.

      They have a real problem. The growth of the BDS movement particularly in the universities has allowed the easy acceptance of anti Semitism to be seen as legitimate anti Israel behaviour.
      The two things are not at all the same. Anti Semitism predates the state of Israel by hundreds of years and has always been an irrational and destructive force .
      The hatred of Israel has to be heard to be believed. It provides cover and an excuse for things like the wall mural which was straight out of 1930s Germany .
      The atmosphere for Jews has been poisoned in higher education and there is no antidote now. It has now spread to the labour party which is no longer the party of the ordinary working man and has become the party of entitled spoilt middle class children and bitter academics and quangocrats stiffened by on the make trade union leaders. Add to that the endless state employees and you have it.
      Jones and Corbyn are in denial. The other factor we need not mention . It has to do with a new demographic which is mistakenly wedded to this lot.

    “A row about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has been prompted by Jeremy Corbyn’s comments on an allegedly anti-Semitic mural in 2012.”
    ..er allegedly anti-semetic, BBC? Really?

    “the former London Mayor Ken Livingstone made his own comments that were alleged to have been anti-Semitic.”

    That magical word ‘alleged’ again BBC. No BBC. Following a labour party investigation into his views, he was suspended for 2 years and then the ban extended following further revelations.

    “Mr Livingstone said he was not suggesting Hitler was a Zionist, adding that the Nazi leader was “a monster from start to finish”.”

    Erm sorry BBC, yes he did say exactly that in a BBC interview, Adolf Hitler “was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews”. Come on BBC, you are lying about what he actually said to you.

      The question is simple.
      Do we enforce the rule of law or not.
      English tradition is that the common law is over and above anyone and that it has to be enforced.

    First story on BBC website is headlined ‘Labour not connected to abusive posts’. BBCLabour doing what is expected of it.

    IMaybe it’s just me but I can’t help feeling that if the BBC headline had been ‘Labour associates itself with anti-semitic posts in order to shore up its core vote’ then it might be more odious but it would at least have greater credibility.

    Not biased BBC as such but part of the left wing ‘victimhood’ culture.
    BBC headlinining ‘no school for 4000 special needs pupils’.
    Now I know this esteemed website does not especially favour the education system. But schools these days have to cater for SEN children- an ever growing group not through intrinsic need but ever more lax definitions; as well as ‘looked after children’ (who get positive discrimination in school admission policies), then there is the prevent strategy, harrassment and bullying, LGBT support, standing in for various parental deficiencies etc etc. (Although no policies for the biggest under-achievers, white working class boys). After all the special interests are covered there is little time left to actually do some normal educating.
    Would it be simpler all round if the Department for Education closed and just moved under the wing of Social Services?

          My jury is still out on whether Nawaz is involved in taqiyya (deception) for the Islamic agenda and should be watched very carefully.
          I called him once on LBC in response to his question about what can be done to combat this terrorism.
          The point I was trying to make was that we need to go after the source of this terrorism which in reality is the various Islamic nation leaders, each vying for ‘top position’, and using their religion to ensure that their subjects see ‘The West’ or other religions and factions as the ‘real enemy’ so that they themselves won’t be turned against. Secondly to increase their own power within the Islamic world.
          My reference for this was a book written by Jossef Bodansky ‘The High Cost of Peace’, who is an expert in the goings on within the Islamic world, and was an adviser to the White House, and had predicted 9/11.
          As an example, I went on to say that quite possibly the real purpose of taking out Saddam, which Bush referred to as THE WAR ON TERROR, was to serve as a ‘whispered’ example to the rest of the Islamic world that if you mess with us this is what will happen to you. Actually a very good strategy, and we noticed that immediately Gaddafi for one became a very good boy.
          It would have worked further but for the fact that our very own media, along with other self-interested parties demonised Bush for this ‘illegal’ war.

          Before I could continue my vision to counter the Islamic agenda, Nawaz interrupted to ask me to tell him where had Saddam shown any support for Al Qaeda. While I don’t see this as particularly relevant, although he had, as Al Qaeda is just one of many groups vying for power, I said I couldn’t remember the details offhand and would need to look it up.

          At this point Nawaz cut me off to state unequivocally that Saddam NEVER HAD, and he knew for a fact that Saddam was against Al Qaeda.
          In this way he dismissed the real and only way that we can combat terrorism – BY ATTACKING THE SOURCE.

          Perhaps Nawaz can explain this:
          http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-174005/Al-Qaeda-fighting-Saddam.html

          and this:
          http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/1341394/Alert-by-Saddam-points-to-Iraq.html

          Just to clarify I have no doubts about our Pounce here or Raheem Kassam, and there is a valid point about why would anybody who can see how easy it is to use Islam as a means to dominate others adhere to this religion. Coming 700 years after Jesus what can be seen as enriching in this religion?

          I’m not saying that muslims can’t be nice or peaceful or brave.

          If I saw a muslim in trouble not of their making I would try to help.

          But islam doesn’t have to be violent to be a problem. There is still the cultural smothering. Also it is not enough for muslims to say that they are not violent so what’s not to like.

          One thing that bothers me is the claim to the moral high ground, all that painting by numbers false piety, praying, fasting, special food and so-called ‘religious dress’. It seems to be partly about tribal markers as much as religion. Also, the more the establishment panders to islam and supports de facto islamic blasphemy law, the more they feel emboldened to be more islamic.

          Anyway, how can islam be reformed? They’d have to take bad Mo out of it and them it wouldn’t really be islam since Mo being the seal of the prophets is the basis of islam.

            I think my concern is those that say they are moderate muslims yet still follow the daily intrusion of praying regularly or fasting.

            Your religion is affecting the scheduling of your day or affecting your intake of food.

            It’s hard to believe that someone would let their faith affect them to that extent yet still describe themselves as moderate.

            If their god is telling them to do those things (and they are doing them), why would they ignore the other stuff he is commanding?

        • Oaknash says:

          I totally agree Foscari. Whilst I believe that Nawaz is somewhat deluded and naive in his belief that Islam can change ( when we all know it cant). At least on the whole he does not seem shy of highlighting many of the problems the dear prophet has bought to our society (and like Tommy Robinson) in my book has certainly put his head above the parapet and may well lose it one day.

          I would go further and say that if all the Muslims who came to the UK had the same questioning attitude about their religion as Nawaz then apart from the sheer numbers there would not be a problem.

          Unfortunately this does not seem to be the case and this is as much due to our own cowardly politicians (who do not back up people like Nawaz and instead prefer appeasement to those making accusations about the concocted Islamaphobia “crime”) as it is due to many of the enrichers own medieval attitudes imported from their own shithole countries of origin.

          We need to be careful in who we attack. And when there is a Muslim making a genuine attempt to deal with these problems in his own society then he must be supported in that.

          Islam will lop the apostates head off before the kuffar, the people of their books.
          Can`t condone any comments where we`re only making a contribution to a debate-whilst expecting him to make a sacrifice that we don`t need to do.
          In fact, the appalling lack of support for Nawaz, Namazie, Hirsi Ali etc shows how spineless and gutless our culture has become. My parents used to say that I could say what I liked ” it`s a free country”.
          Not so now. Nawaz deserves our thanks and support, despite being nowhere like the finished article we`d have chosen.

    While the MSM and politicians are busy sucking up to islam, islam is busy removing Christianity from the world.

    Whatever your stance on God, you can’t disagree that a religion essentially based on something nice is being replaced by one based on something very nasty indeed.
