    n a speech on the future of immigration, Ms Abbot unveiled plans to make it easier for people from the rest of the world to come to Britain and for low paid workers to get easier access to British citizenship.

    The Conservatives warned that the plans are likely to push up immigration even further and push down wages at the lower end of the scale further as the UK is flooded with cheap labour.

    Amber Rudd has had to apologise for referring to Diane Abbot as a ‘coloured woman’ in an interview on the Jeremy Vine show. BBC types and twitter have gone into overdrive in a state of high dudgeon at the offense of it all, as it appears its an outmoded and offensive term.

    HOWEVER, its ok to use the term ‘person/woman/man of colour’ – can anyone explain the difference to me ?

    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      It is a distinction without a difference. It is there purely to see if you are woke or not. If “person of colour” is not racist, there can be no possible reason why “coloured” is racist.

      It would be nice if just once someone who has “misspoken” in this way could tell the SJWs to get stuffed with their fake outrage over a non-event. But Amber Rudd is not that person.

        Thanks Rob, but can you go one further, and pretend you are explaining to a 5 year old, what being ‘woke’ is. I have seen this term used several times – particularly on here, and haven’t a bloody clue what it means.

        Unless its similar to a term used decades ago, of being U and non-U.

          “Woke” is essentially equivalent to “politically correct”, now that that term is used as a figure of fun. “Woke” will go there eventually, and then they will have to find a new term to describe heavily tattooed transgender vegan activists who love Jeremy Corbyn and hate western civilization.

          BRISSLES
          Woke – politically correct, progressive, know all millennial.

          I might be able to help with reference to the world expert on Woke, Titania McGrath 24, whose book is published today. Titania appears on Twitter as a radical intersectionalist feminist slam poet and vegan activist, who believes in peaceful armed struggle. She does not want men to review her book as that would be sexual oppression. You can enter the book and read several sections.


          ‘From the ad.

          In Woke, Titania McGrath demonstrates how everybody can play their part in the pursuit of social justice. As a millennial icon on the forefront of online activism, Titania is uniquely placed to guide her readers through the often bewildering array of terminology and concepts that constitute twenty-first-century ‘wokeness’. These new ideas often leave the general public bemused, particularly if they don’t read the Guardian.

          Being woke is actually much easier than people think. As Titania demonstrates, anyone can be an activist. By simply adding a rainbow flag to your Facebook profile, or calling out an elderly person who doesn’t understand what ‘non-binary’ means, you can change the world for the better. Indeed, social media has now made it possible to show how virtuous you are without having to do anything at all.

          Timely and indispensable, Titania’s step-by-step guide will help you to become the woke person you need to be in an increasingly progressive world. In a non-patronising manner, Titania will explain why you are wrong about everything and how to become more like her. She was going to title her book, My Struggle, but thinks someone else may have used that title.
          ——————–
          For more information see this interview in the Spectator. Titania has been called a satirist by some, who do not appreciate that she means everything she says.

        so amber who likes a bit of black is a waycist now
        please can someone also explain what todays proper terms are to me as well

        so far I got

        flabbot is black or is a person of colour not a coloured
        Warsi is Brown or is a person of colour and definitely not coloured
        alan Mak is not yellow but is a person of colour and definitely not coloured

        elizebeth warren is white but is a person of colour but not coloured
        donald trump is orange but is white and definitely not coloured

        a white with a hijab is a person of colour (see linda sarsour self quote)
        a gammon is a reddy/pink and also white and also definitely not coloured

        A Black with a knife is a transparent child
        A Brown with gang raping pedo tendencys is an asian man but also not yellow

        Singulars like Black are ok but a gang of Blacks isnt, is it a gang of persons of colour or is gang a collective name for them now

        I think they should at least tell us what their preferred noun is now to go with their preferred pronoun

      From the Ministry of Justice….

      Knife possession offences rarely followed exclusions
      ‘Only a very small proportion committed the knife possession offence shortly after being excluded from school. For those with a permanent exclusion that came later than their knife possession offence, half were excluded within the next 30 days.Although it is not possible to identify from this analysis whether there is an association between exclusions and knife possession offending, the low volumes of knife possession offences following exclusions mean any such association could not be a significant driver of youth knife possession offending overall’

      And note that is ‘knife possession’ not actual knife use….so stabbings by excluded youths would be an even lower figure.

      Hmmmm….

      I noted a couple of days ago the BBC’s ‘out-of-the-blue’ conclusion that the cause of knife crime was in fact exclusion from school. Wondered where they got that from. Funnily enough a couple of days later Labour’s Sadiq Khan and several Police and Crime Commissioners write a letter to May demanding answers about school exclusions…

      ‘The prime minister has been told that a “broken” system of exclusions is to blame for rising knife crime across the country.

      The London mayor, Sadiq Khan, co-signed a letter to Theresa May calling for an end to rising unofficial exclusions, known as off-rolling.’

      Who are these commissioners though?…..

      ‘Commissioners for the West Midlands, South Yorkshire, Humberside, Northumbria, West Yorkshire, Leicestershire and South Wales signed the letter.’

      Just a coincidence of course but they are all Labour PCC’s. Nobody at the BBC or Guardian cares to point that out for some reason.

      Labour is playing highly politicised games with kids’ lives and the BBC and Guardian provide them with the stamp of approval and a platform to peddle their schtick unchallenged… in fact actually vigorously promote it.

      One other interesting narrative that the BBC and its fellow travellers are pushing is that nobody [especially not the Daily Mail] paid any attention to knife crime before a white girl was stabbed and a boy[migrant heritage] from a grammar school was killed. Heard this a few times now from the mouths of BBC presenters. Just a complete lie….Mail [and everyone] has been pumpng out stories about knife crime for ages now….google it and a flood of headlines come up….

      Bloodbath Britain: Murder rate rockets by 14% and knife crime soars by 12% in a year – as stats show offences solved are at lowest in three years

      London’s bloodiest year in a decade: 2018 ends with 134 murders – including 70 stab deaths and 24 young people killed

      Britain’s crime crisis IS real: Killings soar to highest level for TEN YEARS and knife crime surges to seven-year high – while no one is charged in nine out of ten crimes

      Knife crimes soars by more than a fifth across England and Wales driven by weapons epidemic in London – where the murder rate increased by 44%

          That’s a great explanation, Jim!

          ‘rap’ is just that – total rubbish, and not even worthy of the word ‘Music’. It’s the sort of genre where decent brickwork is scarred by spray-painted scribble, sordid lifestyles, thick parenting and an inability to lead the life our grandparents fought for.

          That little shit Khan is the problem – a weak little prat, put up for a non-job in a once-proud city, and completely out of his depth.

          Yesterday, I met my old business partner, who used to keep every wine bar in London in business, because he worked his socks off there. We both agreed that we would never, ever revisit the place as it is a foul area of unpleasantness, and all because of the ridiculous mayor being incapable of stringing two words together without looking like an imbecile.

      @ Fedup2 6.15 PM
      Re the retired Coppers, no fear we’ve escaped. We planned our move to the South of France from as far back as 2004 and left 10 years later, after seeing the writing on the wall and getting called every name under the sun for pointing it out. We wanted to live somewhere where the news didn’t send our blood pressure sky hire and where a person of colour was a novelty and we believed an EU referendum would never happen. I don’t want this to be true but I believe London is lost if you’re not one of the elite with gates or a certain minority .

    But it was when he teamed up with friends from West London to help form a cell of British fighters that he entered the upper echelons of the organisation. “He was willing to justify anything sadistic or anything wrong that Isis had done without feeling in any way funny about it,”

    Labour anti-Semitism row deepens as watchdog says party ‘may have discriminated’

    Labour could face enforcement action from the Equality and Human Rights Commission over complaints about anti-Semitism in the party.

    The equality watchdog said it believes Labour may have “unlawfully discriminated against people because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs”.

    It is now contacting Jeremy Corbyn’s party to set out its concerns and request a response. If that response is found to be unsatisfactory, the EHRC could launch a formal investigation.

    With the knife crime epidemic, it seems to be a case of everyone is to blame apart from the people who carry out the stabbings. Crime just happens automatically, as if by magic. Why not blame the criminals for a change? Obviously more police would be a good idea, but that isn’t the main problem. The main problem is people choosing, of their own free will, to commit crimes. They didn’t have to do it, they chose to do it. You’ll never hear anyone on the news saying this. I wonder why…

    Here’s the bbc headline, squirrelled away in Local News, of course:

    “Halifax grooming gang members lose sentence appeal.”

    So what image does the beebeestan use to illustrate the minor story about the drugging, grooming, trafficking and raping of children and teenage girls in Halifax? Why, a pile of bricks, of course.

    Note too that while the court sentence calls them ‘children’, al-beeb prefers the more tactful ‘teenage girls’.

    If the beeb won’t spell out the rapists, here are there names:

    Hedar Ali, 36, of Bradford, was jailed for 25 years after being found guilty of two counts of rape and two counts of trafficking for sexual exploitation
    Haider Ali, 41, of Halifax, sentenced to 20 years in prison after he was found guilty of sexual activity with a child and causing a person to engage in sexual activity
    Khalid Zaman, 38, of Bradford, jailed for 17-and-a-half years after being convicted of two counts of rape and supplying class B drugs. He denied all the charges
    Mohammed Ramzan, 35, of Bradford, jailed for 15 years after being found guilty of rape
    Haaris Ahmed, 32, of Halifax, sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison after he was found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child and with the supply of class B drugs
    Tahir Mahmood, 43, of Halifax, jailed for 11 years after being found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child and sexual assault.
    Taukeer Butt, 31, of Halifax, jailed for 10 years after he was found guilty of four counts of sexual activity with a child
    Amaar Ali Ditta, 27, of Halifax, sentenced to nine years in prison after being found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child
    Azeem Subhani, 25, of Halifax, jailed for nine years after being found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child
    Talib Saddiq, 31, of Halifax, jailed for eight years after he was found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child.
    Sikander Malik, 31, of Halifax, jailed for seven years after being found guilty of sexual activity with a child
    Mohammed Ali Ahmed, 43, of Halifax, jailed for six-and-a-half years after being found guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child
    Aftab Hussain, 37, of Halifax, jailed for six years after pleading guilty to two charges of sexual activity with a child last September
    Mansoor Akhtar, 25, of Huddersfield, was found guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child but admitted to supplying Class B drugs. He was jailed for six years
    Sikander Ishaq, 31, of Halifax, sentenced to six years in prison after being found guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child
    Fasil Mahmood, 37, of Halifax, was jailed for 10 months after he was found guilty of supplying class B drugs.

      Well that’s even more stats to bolster the obscene amount of muslims in our prisons.

      5% of the population, yet 15% of the prison population. Doesn’t sound like a religion of peace does it…

      What’s even more alarming though is that is a gang of 14 men, aided I’m sure by even more that didn’t get caught or prosecuted. When are the authorities (I guess I already know that it’s never) going to wake up to the problem that you can get this many willing accomplices together. I mean jesus, do you think if you got 20 normal blokes together that they would ALL be rapists?

      Are there no whistleblowers in this disgusting cult? Are we not alarmed that individual Muslims who fancy a bit of raping can find others so quickly and readily to join them? Is it not a huge concern that when looking for recruits to their bout of pillaging that no one seems to say ‘hang on guys this is flat out wrong’.

      Of course they don’t and that is why this religion is such a disgusting stain on the world. Granted the Catholic church has it’s share of monsters but these are usually individuals that are protected by higher forces. The Muslim rape gangs seem able to pull endless willing participants from their congregation ad infinitum.

      Okay, some Muslims might be decent but when are they going to start doing something about those that are destroying the reputation of their faith? Instead of blaming those nasty outsiders for pointing the finger at the darkness in the centre of their cult, when are they going to start giving voice to their outrage. And I’m afraid the answer is never or rarely. It’s far easier for them to bury their heads in the side, complain about racists being unfair to them and tacitly support their actions with their silence.

    Tom Bradby who is clearly anti Brexit telling us about the increase in “Russian activity” in the North Sea.
    Telling us we may not be able to rely on NATO since “Trump” came to power.

    They are all in it together it’s not just the BBC.

    Abbott has such a lot of respect for all communities….oddly not keen to apologise to a Jewish man…how very ‘Labour’ these days…

    ‘Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has refused to clarify remarks she made on BBC Question Time earlier this year where she suggested members of the charedi community became targets of hate crime because of the “costume” they wore.

    Last week, she was asked by London tube train passenger Alex Rose to explain the comments but Ms Abbott was clearly in no mood to talk as she ignored his question and stood up from her seat to sit away from him further along the busy carriage.’

    Funny how the BBC doesn’t remind us of all the racist comments Abbott has made as they would if this had been a Tory ‘victim’ of racism…When a Tory is a victim of racism from one of the BBC’s favoured minorities the BBC prefers to dig out any old comments the Tory has made in order to muddy the waters and turn the victim into the racist criminal.

    The knife crime seems to just increase. It will spread out into other communities and unless action is taken will be out of control soon. The BBC has just gone along with fashionable progressive views so no surprise there. There is no quick answer. All that can be done immediately is to put out the fire any way we can . That means stop and search and making punishment so severe that it is almost medieval in severity. Then when we have asserted control we can deal with the social and economic factors and making the police force as visible a presence as it should by rights always be. . The important thing is to take back control.
    It can be done. All it takes is the will to do it. However the damage done and being done to our country by the progressives of the BBC etc does not help us. I have often thought the BBc etc merely stupid but now there is no doubt in my mind that it and the rest are malicious and destructive of the good order of the nation .
    It needs to be put in it’s place.

      If it was my decision I’d sack all the chief police officers and replace them. And keep sacking them until one is found who takes the job seriously and gets the desired results.

      I think the police are deliberately allowing knife and other crimes to flourish to put pressure on us, to put pressure on the government to give them more money. What do they need more money for? I think perhaps to complete their plans for a police state.

      If they were serious about preventing and investigating crimes, they’d stop wasting time and manpower on fake hate crimes, fake islamophobia and the persecution of Christians and truth tellers such as Tommy Robinson and others.

      There’s a little part of me that is laughing at this and the contradiction this will cause among the LGBT folks who have harked on forever and ever above equality and diversity.

      Well, the sad truth is that not all are equal and pretending we all are is just subjection to lesser cultures.

      I ask though, what is it that Islam brings to the British culture that we didn’t have before? With the other cultures we successfully dominated we were able to integrate the good bits and ignore the backward bits. But Islam is all backwards. I really can’t think of a single thing that their culture has to offer and it is complete foolishness to think of them as anything other than backward savages not even intelliegent enough to realise the inherenat flaw in their culture that has led them to regress.

      At least the cultures of the British Empire could understand clearly the massive advantages in British culture compared to their own and for many to be accepted as part of our culture was the highest achievement they could make. Perhaps the best example is cricket. Can you imagine how that must of looked to a mud-hut dwelling savage to see fair-skinned white-clothed ‘gods’ being so advanced as to have a past-time of such civility and grace compared to dancing around the fire chanting “hula-hula” all night!?

      I’m reminded of the aboriginals, who hadn’t discovered the wheel before we conquered them.

      The preferential treatment of the Muslims is like making the class fool a prefect. It helps no-one least of all the fool. Better to HIGHLIGHT to the Muslims their social inadequacies so the can improve – much as we have done throughout our successful years as the world’s leader – before we put our feet up for a bit and let the Americans have a go.:-)

    The spoof snowflake who made a fool of the Lefties: ‘Titania’s’ right-on Twitter nonsense was swallowed by an army of gullible followers… but she’s really the satirical creation of a (male) Oxford academic, writes SARAH VINE

    Titania McGrath on Twitter claimed to be radical vegan and woke feminist poet
    In reality, she was created by Andrew Doyle, a former private school teacher, 40
    Sarah Vine says secret of the character’s success is, of course, her plausibility

    Twitter, it is has to be said, is not known for its subtlety or sense of humour. With, that is, one notable exception: Titania McGrath.

    For the uninitiated, Titania Gethsemane McGrath is a radical vegan, woke poet committed to feminism, social justice and armed, peaceful protest. She works to expose racism, bigotry and misogyny. As she herself confesses: ‘I was born woke. My wokeness is innate. It flows through me like a magical elixir, keeping my soul perched and poised for the fight.’

    Woke, for those of you born before 1990 who may, understandably, be unfamiliar with the term, is to be terribly earnest (or pretentious) about how much you care about social issues, particularly racism.

    I first came across this bespectacled, earnest-looking blonde on Twitter last summer, when someone on my timeline re-tweeted something she’d said.

    I wasn’t really paying attention and took her words (something offensive about people who voted Brexit, as I recall) at face value. I was about to get all wound up about it (as one does on Twitter) until the friend messaged me to say it was a parody account to send up the modern obsessions with gender fluidity, identity politics and cultural appropriation.

    Indeed, there are many occasions when she is indistinguishable from the likes of prominent figures such as left-wing journalists Owen Jones, writer Laurie Penny or columnist Afua Hirsch (who once argued Nelson’s column in Trafalgar Square should be removed because it was a symbol of white supremacist patriarchal oppression).

    Or, as Titania herself would put it: ‘If you don’t think exactly the same way as me, then you’ve clearly got a lot to learn about diversity.’

    One of Titania’s most convincing attributes is her lack of self-knowledge, a tendency to take for granted the privileges that come as standard for her generation — and an inability to see things from anyone else’s point of view.

    ‘People are far too sentimental about the elderly,’ she writes. ‘I am no longer helping them cross the street. They opted for Brexit, so as far as I’m concerned they can take their chances with the traffic. Remember too that these are the people who fought in the second World War. How can shooting at Germans be anything other than xenophobic?’

    It’s just dawned on me in the early hours that surely a main sticking point for TM when seeking a resolution to the backstop arrangement with the EU, is that they don’t speak English as a first language do they! I mean, it’s the obvious problem staring us right in the face. For example, if I were to walk into a French bathroom centre and ask for something to resolve my backstop, they would try to sell me a loofah wouldn’t they? If I made a fuss, they would then just shrug and walk off. So, in conclusion, the EU are probably not being awkward at all. They are just being foreign and need some extra shouting.

    Personally I think the general quality of life in Britain peaked in the early to mid 1990s, probably around 1993 or 1994, and has been slowly getting worse since then. Anyone agree? (I know this sounds a bit like one of those “life was better in the 1950s” cliches). People talk about technology, but the truth is the computers that existed in the 1990s were already powerful enough to do 99% of the things that people needed them to do. Things like mobile phones and GPS devices were already around at that time for people who were keen enough to want to pay a lot of money to own them. (My father bought a GPS in about 1994. It just gave coordinates and you had to use an OS map to see where you were. We still use it sometimes). It’s true that some things have got better since then: it’s just that the things that have got worse have outweighed them in my opinion.

    Hundreds of Muslim parents along with children dressed as superheroes demonstrated outside a primary school today to protest against lessons on gay lifestyles.

    Parents have spent weeks protesting over the Birmingham school after they heard ‘No Outsiders’ lessons, featuring stories about same-sex relationships and marriages, would be held in school.

    Despite an earlier report the lessons had been scrapped the school has insisted the 470-pupils at Parkfield Community School will be introduced to books including ‘Mommy, Mama and Me’ and ‘King & King’ after Easter.

    The school said ‘equalities education’ will continue at the school and that staff will be working in consultation with parents.

    However, more than 200 people turned up waving placards and shouting through loudspeakers outside the gates in Birmingham, on Thursday.

    They accused gay assistant head Andrew Moffatt of promoting homosexuality and LGBT issues without their consent.

    Parents at the school, where 99 per cent of pupils are Muslim, want the lessons scrapped because homosexuality is banned in Islam.

    TOADY Watch #1

    I suggested the other day that the Dept for Education might have joined the Home Office as a Government Dept. that is ‘not fit for purpose’. The BBC’s lead news item on R4 at 6am is the letter written by Head teachers to parents complaining of under-funding of schools. Government’s response: school education budget is increasing by £2.something billion from £40.something bn., remember in just England – not the UK. Even while waking up, some quick mental arithmetic by Snuffy, suggests that that is a nigh on 5% increase in funding, approximately 3% above inflation.

    So the funding is there. It is obviously not reaching the schools. Who stands between schools and all that money?

    Dept for Education. Local Education Authorities. Mayors.

    The BBC wheel on a female Head from a London school. M/s Low (Lowe? Lo? Loe?) complains on TOADY how short of finance her school is, what desperate measures she has to take, how little money the school has for textbooks and science materials.

    Snuffy’s immediate thought?

    M/s Low/Lowe/Lo/Loe has seriously upset the Education Dept at City Hall and in the D.f.Education who have pushed her and her school to the back of the queue for funding.

    Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Iranian-Briton to get diplomatic protection

    Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has both British and Iranian citizenship, was sentenced to five years in jail in Iran in 2016 after being found guilty of spying. She denies any wrongdoing. Now UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is to increase pressure on Iran to release Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe by giving her diplomatic protection.

    BBC diplomatic correspondent James Landale says this will allow the UK to raise her case with greater ease at international forums like the United Nations. So how does diplomatic protection work? Here’s our guide.

    And here’s what it might mean for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, whose husband and daughter live in the UK.

So the best he can do is get the approval of higher beeboids by going as far left as possible . Immoral way to make a living – but he is a journo so the standard of morality is far lower…

      According to wiki he is the son of the Empire ( and might have a chip about it – my note ).Private education after the family left Ethiopia led him to getting a 3rd in physics and electronics at Southampton uni . In my book a 3rd if a ‘fail’ . He lives in London and this is his address ……

      Just to add – an interview between sandford and TR is on twitter and it shows the innate ruling class elite attitude of Mr sandford – just by body language . ….now where is that swamp ..?
