One Week in the Death of Britain
by Paul Weston
When a country is slowly dying (or being slowly murdered) it makes for depressing reading when one charts its death throes. This is precisely why I don’t write articles such as this on a regular basis. I really don’t want to foreshorten the time we have left by depressing people to such an extent they break out the accumulated sleeping pills, or reach for a tumbler of whisky and the trusty old service revolver in the study.
But sometimes it has to be done. The contents of this article are nothing new. They are not an exceptional set of events in an exceptional time. They are simply one week’s worth of news stories representing what goes on day-in day-out, week-in week-out, year-in year-out, within a country that dies a little death every day from the left-wing knife intent on making a thousand cuts.
It is hard to know where to begin, but the ongoing population replacement of the native British is always a good start. The foreign-born population of London is set to outnumber the native-born within the next fifteen years. What should be noted here is that the English are already a minority in London and that the majority of “native” London-born are not actually English at all. This ongoing catastrophe means our virtual extinction even before one factors in the booming foreign-born. In other words, the capitol city of England is already lost to the English and it will become exponentially worse very quickly.
The demographic decline of the English due to below replacement-level birth rates, coupled with the demographic explosion of Islam via mass immigration and high birth rates, is leading toward another totally predictable catastrophe in terms of democracy. For the first time in the history of Britain, foreign-born voters are set to decide the electoral outcome of several parliamentary constituencies.
As the years and decades pass, the ever-decreasing native British will find themselves increasingly unrepresented in national politics, something which even the liberal/left might find irksome in the extreme as reality finally dawns on their cranially challenged multiculti world view. At the moment, though, they are all for it. The English living in the London area of Brent are a minority, but local Labour MP Barry Gardiner thinks this a jolly good thing, and said:
“The great thing is that we are all minorities in Brent. We know we have to get on, and by and large we do. It is the area’s diversity that gives it its strength — and cohesion.”
Mr Gardiner is a member of the Traitor Class and knows if he told the truth about Brent he would never be re-elected. A slightly more honest description, courtesy of a government document part written by Brent Councillor Zaffar Van Kalwala paints an altogether different picture:
“Having been born and raised in Brent, I have become all too familiar with many of the statistics relating to gangs first hand; some of the people I grew up with and went to school with are either in prison or no longer with us — guns and gangs did that. Tackling gangs and gang culture is one of the biggest challenges we face in our community. National estimates indicate gangs could affect up to 6% of all 11-19 year olds in the borough. According to the Metropolitan Police, gangs are estimated to be responsible for 16% of the total drug supply, 26% of aggravated burglary and 14% of all types of rape. It has been also reported that 50% of all shootings are gang related.”
If you are English and you live in Brent, it is highly likely you will be less than impressed about living in a multiculti war zone. And if you think there is a democratic way out of this you will be sorely disappointed. The ‘Migrant’s Rights Network’ put it thus: “Migrants do not vote as a bloc, but historically they tend to favour parties with positive attitudes to race and immigration.” Or, in other words, don’t be negative about your racial and cultural dispossession you white, English bastards.
Those who are replacing us are nothing like us in civilisational terms. Which of course has consequences. In the aftermath of the Muslim murders in Paris, British Jews are feeling the anti-Semitic hate in Britain as well, which is hardly surprising when our witless ruling elites thought it a good idea to import a brown version of the Nazi party into what was once a peaceful and cohesive country.
The virulently left-wing BBC is also complicit in the rise of anti-Semitism in Britain, as they spew their vitriolic bile about Israel 24/7. The head of the BBC’s Religious Affairs Unit is a Muslim with a questionable past, whilst Tariq Kafala, the erstwhile head of BBC Arabic (Al-Beeb’s largest non-English speaking broadcaster…) stated the Muslim terrorists responsible for the Paris murders must not be described as either Muslims or terrorists; presumably because to do so might make people equate Muslim terrorism with Muslim terrorists who adhere to the scriptures of their Holy Book which call for Muslim terrorism.
This obscene Leftist/Islamic alliance has now led to the point where Muslim males in Britain go Jew bashing of a Saturday evening rather than contravening sharia law and drinking warm beer whilst flirting with doe-eyed houris. Three young Muslims have just been convicted of racially aggravated assault which left their Jewish victim with this to say about celebrating diversity in modern, go-ahead multicultural Britain:
“I was targeted because of my religion and I’m now scared to walk past members of the Asian community with whom otherwise I have no problem. When I come across a person from the Middle East. I feel scared and petrified.”
And he is not alone. Some 63% of British Jews now question whether they have a future in Britain. This is an astonishing statistic for a country instrumental in defeating Nazism just a bare few decades ago. Still, I’m sure we can deal with this new threat. Home Secretary Theresa May stated she will stamp out anti-Semitism with great vigour, a gung-ho promise somewhat compromised by her refusal to inform us from just where this anti-Semitic ideology emanates.
Theresa May, needless to say, believes Islam is a Religion of Peace (© filed on behalf of all Western politicians) and constantly states we should celebrate diversity whilst simultaneously stating we should not celebrate diversity if said diversity does not adhere to the full celebration of human rights, women’s rights, homosexual rights, not blowing people up on buses and trains rights etc — which presents rather a tortuous conundrum for her when it comes to celebrating the not-terribly-diverse-at-all ideology of Islam. It might just be me, but I have doubts as to whether Islamic inspired anti-Semitism will be tackled by our current Home Secretary. How about you?
Islam and the behaviour of its devoted followers is a constant source of delightful newspaper stories to be enjoyed with one’s morning coffee and toast. Paedophile illegal immigrant Zia Maroof Khail has just been found guilty of failing to understand Britain’s strange multicultural laws which encourage foreign cultures to retain their culture. In this instance, it was raping a 13-year-old girl, which in his defence he did not consider an illegal act, what with his cultural upbringing in Afghanistan and all that. As Daniel Greenfield so eloquently put it “Specifically raping non-Muslim unattended teenage girls is not against Afghan Muslim cultural norms. Which is a problem for any non-Muslim country they visit.” Indeed Daniel, indeed.
These pesky cultural norms have led to a huge increase in the Muslim population currently behind bars in British prisons. Such is the dramatic increase of Muslim rape we can now proudly lay claim to fully eight prisons which exist only for banging up the perpetrators of sex crimes. This is causing much anguish amongst the Muslim community — not the raping you understand, but the banging up of the rapists themselves.
The Labour Party’s shadow Justice Minister Sadiq Khan (I know, I know…) is most upset that 27% of London’s prison population is Muslim and has called for a government enquiry into just why this should be the case: “What’s really worrying is the rise, year after year, in the number of Muslims behind bars… this is a waste of human talent and a huge drain on the hard-pressed taxpayer” said the egregious Khan with nary a hint of embarrassment or irony. What particular “talent” does he have in mind when he talks about Muslim paedophile rapists, one wonders?
Progressive left/liberals will no doubt take offence about my insinuation that all these Muslim prisoners are paedophile rapists. They may have a point, and I in no way claim all Muslim prisoners are paedophile rapists. Some might simply be representing their community as drug dealers, people-traffickers or terrorists… but one thing we know for sure is that not one of them is a Muslim doctor convicted of carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) despite FGM being a crime both against the law and a crime against humanity.
One hospital alone, Birmingham Heartlands, has dealt with 1,500 cases of FGM over the last five years. On an annual national basis 5,500 FGM victims are cared for by British hospitals. This figure is deemed to be the tip of the iceberg because patients are often patched up by the local Muslim doctor, rather than being referred to hospital where they just might run into an English doctor who might just report the family (or the initial Muslim doctor/mutilator) to the authorities. You won’t be surprised to hear though, that despite these enormous figures being known to the authorities, Britain has yet to see a single conviction. We don’t want to upset community cohesion after all, old chap.
Gender abortion is another one of those glorious aspects of a diverse and multicultural Britain imported from the Indian sub-continent, which again must not be criticised on community cohesion grounds. In a letter to the Daily Telegraph today, forty-four pre-eminent “liberals” from what appears to be the entire gamut of British university humanities departments, pointed out the dangers involved in drawing attention to ethnic minorities with a predisposition to slaughtering their potential female offspring. The arguments they used are as follows:
“First, it would undermine the professional integrity of those who work in an already overstretched abortion service, as it suggests that they need to be stopped from doing something that constitutes a form of violence and abuse… secondly, it risks encouraging doctors to enact some form of ethnic profiling that would, for example, require service providers to question Asian women specifically… thirdly, it seeks to construe abortion as an offence against “the unborn child”, specifically “the girl”. This is an attempt to secure a legal definition of a pregnancy that recognises the “rights of the unborn” and thus erodes women’s reproductive rights.”
Isn’t that nice? These disgusting progressive liberals, many of them feminists, would happily allow the murder of a sentient living being, rather than ethnically profile Asian women who wish to carry out an abortion (probably against their will) because their husband wants a superior boy rather than an inferior girl — in their eyes. And Western, feminist liberals agree with this… Dear God, give me strength.
As many people are now aware, British Prime Minister David Cameron thinks Islam is a religion of peace (© all Western politicians) and has been paying his due respects following the death of the old Saudi Arabian tyrant, King Abdullah bin Abd Al Aziz Al Saud. When asked for his comments about the passing of this terrorist-in-chief, Cameron adopted the appropriate infidel position and came up with the following nauseatingly dhimmi verbiage:
“I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of the custodian of the two holy mosques… his Majesty will be remembered for his long years of service to the kingdom, for his commitment to peace and for strengthening understanding between faiths… I sincerely hope that the long and deep ties between our two kingdoms will continue and that we can continue to work together to strengthen peace and prosperity in the world.”
Way to go, Cameron! If this doesn’t show the power of the petro-dollar at its finest, then I don’t know what else possibly could. Saudi Arabia is well-known, even by Cameron, as the principle source of funding geared toward the radical Wahhabist subversion of the West, but he showed, in a truly modern political manner, that there is no demeaning level to which a British politician will not stoop in the promotion of cultural relativist degradation mixed with more than a little vainglorious greed.
In another act of cultural/religious abasement, Westminster Abbey flew the Union Jack at half-mast to honour the death of the Saudi king. Even as Christians are being murdered on a colossal scale around the world, the Church of England sought to honour a man responsible for much of the anti-Christian propaganda and a man who led a country where Christianity is banned upon pain of physical punishment or even death. The British politician responsible for pressurising the Church of England into this act of gross dhimmi servitude is the Secretary of State for Culture, the Rt Hon Sajid Javid…
It is not just British Muslim politicians who behave like this, though. Only the other day the impressively larger than life “Communities Minister” Eric Pickles wrote a grovelling letter to Muslim leaders across Britain, urging them to play their part in ensuring British Muslims be steered away from gunning down ungrateful infidels in public places. The quotes below are brief, but this really is a letter that should be read in full.
“Assalamu Alaikum, we have recently seen terrible atrocities committed in Paris. Finding the right response to these events is a challenge for everyone. The hijacking of a great faith to justify such heinous crimes sickens us all. As Muslims around the world have made clear, such actions are an affront to Islam. But there is more work to do. We must show our young people, who may be targeted, that extremists have nothing to offer them… You, as faith leaders, are in a unique position in our society. You have a precious opportunity, and an important responsibility in explaining and demonstrating how British values are Muslim values. Like all faiths, Islam and its message of peace and unity makes our country a better and stronger place, and Britain would be diminished without its strong Muslim communities… We welcome your thoughts, ideas and initiatives on how to ensure that Islam’s true message of peace triumphs over those who seek to divide our communities.”
Considering the fact that Muslims had just murdered lots of non-Muslims in Paris, this letter might strike some as being obsequious in the extreme, possibly even the words of a man already living under a foreign power which Must Not Be Provoked, but even this was too much for British Muslim leaders who reacted as though Pickles had recently donned his Gestapo uniform mit Iron Cross and laid into them with his hunting crop. This is what Harun Khan, deputy secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain had to say:
“Is Mr Pickles seriously suggesting, as do members of the far right, that Muslims and Islam are inherently apart from British society?” He went on to state he was demanding an explanation for the assumptions that appeared to be in the letter.
Now, I think there is something distinctly Not Quite Right about all of this. When the ruling class grovels in the most appalling fashion before the purportedly oppressed class but still get taken to task for not grovelling abjectly enough, one has to question just who is the ruler and who is the ruled. Or, as Voltaire so succinctly put it: “In order to learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.” ’Nuff said, Volty.
There were a number of other news stories with regard to the cultural enrichment Islam brings to Britain. The influx of Somali Muslims into Bristol is leading to the destruction of traditional English pubs, which once closed and shuttered are then available for state funding to turn them into something more relevant to the local community — such as mosques, for example. Local MP for Bristol West Stephen Williams said: “Some parts of my constituency, which used to have a white working class community 20 or 30 years ago are now populated primarily by recently-arrived Somalis and other people. Obviously the pubs in that area have closed. Some have been converted to other uses…”
This Muslim takeover is not limited to little English pubs alone. With limitless petro-dollars, Muslim sovereign wealth funds are able to go for much larger chunks of property than the local Saracen’s Head boozer. Canary Wharf, the new financial centre of Britain, has just been purchased by lovely, friendly Qatar, one of the prime funders of Islamic terrorism on a global scale. Isn’t that just wonderful! Can anyone else see a growing problem here?
Another growth area of Islamic influence is non-stunned halal slaughter, which has seen a dramatic increase in Britain. The Independent reports the number of cattle killed without first being stunned has risen by 33% while the number of sheep not being stunned increased by a half. Readers will not be surprised to learn this meat is served without reference to halal slaughter in our schools, hospitals and supermarkets all over the country. And the animal loving English don’t appear to care greatly about this — including the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) whose caring and compassionate “liberal” leaders have also adopted the appropriate infidel position before Islam. To their eternal shame.
The British police and “Social Services” — which is surely something of a misnomer — also appear incapable of shame, it would seem. In Rotherham, the much publicised epicentre of Muslim rape gangs preying on vulnerable white girls, nothing seems to have changed at all. Sky News claims the rapes are still taking place and the police are still turning a blind eye. This deliberate lack of apparent interest is because the police do not wish to inflame the local Muslim community by clamping down on their extra-cultural activities, thereby causing division between the communities. It has yet to occur to them that this is not really the way forward in terms of community cohesion because the other community — the ignored community, the raped community, the English community — is one day going to erupt in thoroughly moral fury.
To rub salt into the wounds of the young female rape victims, it now transpires some of their names have been leaked by the House of Commons’ Home Affairs select committee which was set up to investigate the rape gangs. The girls have since received further abuse and death threats. The man in charge of this appalling government committee is Yemeni born, Keith Vaz. I may have said this already, but Dear Lord give me strength…
Islam has also played an inadvertent role in the closure of non-Islamic schools. There was a scandal recently in Birmingham, dubbed the Trojan Horse Plot which related to the hard-line Islamic takeover of a number of schools. In order to battle this ongoing Muslim coup, the British government established new educational guidelines which promised to promote traditional British values. Unfortunately — and unsurprisingly — these British values are not what one might necessarily expect, as they seem to consist only of showing respect for Islam, Lesbians, diversity and equality — which as any fule kno are not quite the values that propelled Britain to its once great status in the world.
I won’t bore you with all the sorry and sordid details, which can be found here, but would just mention that two schools are in the process of being closed down because the children are deemed “racist” toward Muslims or sexist toward lesbians. Please bear in mind these schools have been earmarked for closure because they apparently contravene new guidelines specifically designed to combat Islamic extremism. A few choice quotes from the report (linked above) are as follows:
“Parents and leaders at the school have claimed it was targeted because of its Christian ethos. They allege pupils were effectively seen as bigots by inspectors desperate to promote a politically correct diversity agenda and find evidence of religious extremism… similar grievances were being aired by the head teacher at Grindon Hall Christian School, just ten miles away in Sunderland. On Tuesday, he issued a statement complaining about an Ofsted inspection which saw his school downgraded from the best performing of its kind in the area to the worst. Again, the accusation is that inspectors went in with an agenda, quizzing pupils about racism, homophobia and extremism. It is alleged they were even asked if they knew what lesbians ‘did’… other Christian, Catholic and Jewish schools claim also to have been marked down in similar circumstances — one for failing to invite Muslim imams to take assemblies, another for being ‘too white.”
That pretty much wraps up Islam in the news over the last seven-days in Merrie Olde Englande, but it is not just Islam that so enriches our proudly vibrant homeland. In other news this week a gang of fine upstanding foreign British men kidnapped a lone white Englishman and chopped off his finger in an attempt to make his family pay a £60,000 ransom. Isn’t diversity just brilliant? Who on earth could possibly object if such people soon outnumber us?
In addition to this sickening violence carried out against the native English comes the story of the jailing of four Polish immigrants who beat the University lecturer Paul Kohler half-to-death in front of his family in his Wimbledon home. All four had served prison sentences in Poland, but as Britain carries out no border checks on immigrants, they were allowed to blithely waltz into my country to continue to ply their trade here.
Britain is facing the gravest threats to our future as a peaceful and cohesive nation, yet our politicians, media and educational establishment will do nothing about it. Indeed, they are very much part of the threat we face. We have a General Election this year. The Conservatives will fight it by talking about the economy. Labour will fight it by talking about the National Health Service and austerity cuts. UKIP will fight it over the EU and EU immigration.
I don’t think I really need point out that if no one fights against the points raised in this article, which detail just seven days’ worth of assaults on Britain, then Britain cannot survive for very much longer. Can you imagine what the country will look like in a decade’s time if nothing changes today? Or how about in three decades time? If you are the parents of a young child or are thinking of starting a family, their future really ought to be something you start considering. Very carefully.
