Here’s why Islam should no longer be considered as a religion under UK law.

   Scrabbling for justice

Due to the enormous amount of positive feedback that this article has generated, I am leaving it as a “sticky” – that is, it will be the first article visible when you call up http://www.counterjihadwarrior.com from your browser. To view other recently published articles by the Counter Jihad Warrior team, including myself, please refer to the “Recent Posts” and “Archives” sections in the sidebar. If you would like to search for articles based on specific topics then please use the “Tags” section.

This article is partly based on the excellent research undertaken by Graham Senior-Milne concerning the legal status of Islam in the UK.  It is of particular relevance to a March 2018 case of Religiously Aggravated Harassment in Folkestone Magistrates Court concerning Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen of Britain First – and is also relevant to this March 2017 case in Southwark Crown Court where the author of this article was similarly charged.

It may well also be relevant to numerous other cases of Religiously Aggravated Harassment that have been prosecuted since the Racial and Religious Hatred Act came into force in 2006.

Having considered all the arguments from Graham Senior-Milne’s research, it becomes obvious that if only the legal system would take these arguments into account, and find in our favour (as it undoubtedly should) then in addition to quashing the above-mentioned cases of Religiously Aggravated Harassment, we would solve a great many of our problems with Islam overnight. Considering that Islam is shaping up to be the world’s most intractable problem of the 21st century, this would be a most worthwhile goal, and one arguably deserving of a great deal of attention.

The author of this article attempted to have the subject debated in court in 2017, but was informed that there was no way that any judge in the UK would entertain such an idea in the current political climate, which is a sad indictment of the craven and cowardly attitude of those in power who should – in an ideal world – uphold the law without fear or favour, compared to the current policies of appeasement in relation to the increasingly arrogant and aggressive followers of the most barbaric, backward, misogynistic and totalitarian ideology the world has ever seen.

The basic argument is as follows: Islam should not be considered a religion in UK law because it does not meet certain criteria laid down by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) which is currently the highest authority in our legal system.

In a case going back to 1982 it was stated that: in order to qualify for protection under Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) (Freedom of thought,conscience and religion), religious and philosophical beliefs must be worthy of respect in a democratic society, be not incompatible with human dignity and not conflict with the fundamental rights of others.”

If it is lawful to protect religious beliefs that meet these criteria, it must be unlawful to protect (via legal recognition) religious beliefs that do not meet these criteria, because such beliefs must either be not worthy of respect in a democratic society (Islam is unquestionably anti-democratic) and/or incompatible with human dignity (the dignity of women, for instance, who are mere chattels in Islam) and/or conflict with the fundamental rights of others (such as gays, including gay Muslims, who, under Sharia law, must be killed).

Following on from this, the logic would be that, in law, you cannot harass a person based on their religion if, in law, that person has no religion (what they believe is not recognized, in law, as a religion and therefore does not qualify for the legal protections that apply, in law, to religions recognized as such).

In other words, ‘religious harassment of a Muslim’ is, in UK law, a contradiction in terms; it is a legal impossibility.

While Islam has been treated as a religion in numerous cases over the years, this issue has never been argued before a court; courts have just assumed that Islam is a religion in law. In other words, there is no binding precedent on this issue.

This may sound surprising, but you can perhaps understand why courts would avoid this issue like the plague, even if it occurred to them that they might consider it in the first place. But courts do not hesitate to apply these criteria to other philosophical or religious beliefs – so why should Islam be exempt?

Consider the sheer idiocy of the proposition that a set of beliefs which are incompatible with the human rights of others (say, sacrificing babies on the first Tuesday of every month), which would not be protected under Article 9 ECHR as philosophical beliefs, would be protected simply because they are ‘religious beliefs’.

Would you protect Nazi beliefs if Nazis believed that Hitler was God? Of course not. Yet there is a direct parallel with Islam. Rampant antisemitism? Check. An inbuilt sense of supremacism? Check. A quest for worldwide domination by any means available, including fear, violence, intimidation and terror? Check again. It can easily be seen that Islam has much more in common with Nazism than it does with, say, Judaism or Christianity.

In another case from 2005, it was stated that “Article 9 embraces freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The atheist, the agnostic, and the sceptic are as much entitled to freedom to hold and manifest their beliefs as the theist. These beliefs are placed on an equal footing for the purpose of this guaranteed freedom. Thus, if its manifestation is to attract protection under Article 9 then a non-religious belief, as much as a religious belief, must satisfy the modest threshold requirements implicit in this Article.

With regard to the ‘modest threshold requirements’, these are stated at para. 23 (my emphasis): “Everyone, therefore, is entitled to hold whatever beliefs he wishes. But when questions of ‘manifestation’ arise, as they usually do in this type of case, a belief must satisfy some modest, objective minimum requirements. These threshold requirements are implicit in Article 9 of the European Convention and comparable guarantees in other human rights instruments.”

“The belief must be consistent with basic standards of human dignity or integrity. Manifestation of a religious belief, for instance, which involved subjecting others to torture or inhuman punishment would not qualify for protection.”

“The belief must relate to matters more than merely trivial. It must possess an adequate degree of seriousness and importance. As has been said, it must be a belief on a fundamental problem. With religious belief this requisite is readily satisfied.”

“The belief must also be coherent in the sense of being intelligible and capable of being understood. But again, too much should not be demanded in this regard. Typically, religion involves belief in the supernatural. It is not always susceptible to lucid exposition or, still less, rational justification. The language used is often the language of allegory, symbol and metaphor.”

“Depending on the subject matter, individuals cannot always be expected to express themselves with cogency or precision. Nor are an individual’s beliefs fixed and static. The beliefs of every individual are prone to change over his or her lifetime. Overall, these threshold requirements should not be set at a level which would deprive minority beliefs of the protection they are intended to have under the Convention.”

The bottom line is: A person can believe what ever he likes but his beliefs must meet the threshold requirements to be recognized and afforded protection in law.

It is true that Islam is given as an example of a religion in the explanatory notes to s.44 Equality Act 2006, but explanatory notes are not definitive of the meaning of an Act. Also, the explanatory notes state:

‘Section 44 defines what is meant by “religion or belief” for the purposes of this Act. Section 44(a) defines “religion” as “any religion”, a broad definition in line with the freedom of religion guaranteed by Article 9 of the ECHR.’

This makes it clear that, for the purposes of the Equality Act 2006, a religion can only be recognized and treated as a religion if it meets the criteria for Article 9 ECHR (because Article 9 ECHR does not recognize or protect beliefs or religions that do not meet the criteria specified in Campbell and Cosans v United Kingdom [1982] ECHR 1).

In any event, even if a statute did provide that Islam is a religion, that statute would itself be unlawful under Article 9 ECHR, given that the ECHR (and the case law of the ECtHR, which interprets the ECHR) overrides domestic law, whether it be statute or other.

Let’s see how many people out there would support a Judicial Review (the legal mechanism whereby a senior judge would be obliged to consider the proposition that Islam should no longer be considered a religion in law. It is admittedly an expensive process, however if a mere 3000 people (out of our population of 60 million) were to pledge just £10 each then we could take the first step on the road to free our country from the tyranny of Islam. Please register your interest by leaving a message of support at the following email address: editor@counterjihadwarrior.com. You don’t have to pledge any money as such at this stage – I am just trying to gauge the level of interest, and if we manage to get enough people expressing support then we could set up a proper fund-raising campaign.

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to do everything we can to help provide them with a better world, free from the threat of Islam, Sharia law, and all the other manifestations of this barbaric, misogynistic 7th-century totalitarian ideology. Please help us to meet this goal if you possibly can.

Tommy Robinson’s Appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice – Wednesday 18 July 2018

     #FreeTommy

As most of you will know by now, Tommy Robinson was arrested, charged, convicted and sentenced for Contempt of Court by a judge at Leeds Crown Court on Friday 25 May 2018. Since then, there have been numerous “Free Tommy” demonstrations up and down the country, with tens of thousands of people demonstrating outside Downing Street in Whitehall on several occasions in May, June and July.

An appeal to Free Tommy was launched and crowdfunded by Ezra Levant, the founder of Rebel Media in Canada, in conjunction with Tommy’s family, and was originally scheduled for Tuesday 10 July. The Crown asked for more time to prepare and the appeal was finally heard on Wednesday 18 July. I was there at the Royal Courts of Justice on the day, and had the honour of meeting Ezra Levant in person. He had flown in from Canada specifically to cover the trial, and live-tweeted the proceedings as they unfolded in the court.

Tommy Robinson himself was not present in the court, but appeared on a video-link screen. He looked relaxed and engaged with the proceedings by confirming that he could see and hear everything that was going on in the courtroom.

The appeal was heard by the Lord Chief Justice for England and Wales, the Rt Hon Sir Ian Burnett who was sitting alongside the Hon Mr Justice Turner and the Hon Mrs Justice McGowan.

There were around 50 members of the public in the gallery, with maybe another 50-100 demonstrating outside with flags and banners proclaiming “Free Tommy – Free Speech” – although everyone inside and outside the court appeared to be on their best behaviour – and in fact the judge commented on how well-behaved the public gallery was considering the amount of interest that had been generated in the case.

Mr Jeremy Dein QC opened with the arguments for the defence, and it quickly became apparent that the defence team were seeking not only to have Tommy’s conviction at Leeds Crown Court quashed, but also to have his conviction at Canterbury Crown Court one year previously overturned as well. The arguments were twofold – that proper procedures had not been followed by the judges in either case, and that even if the convictions for contempt of court were to be upheld, the sentencing was disproportionate and Tommy should therefore be released with time served.

The barrister for the Crown, Mr Louis Mably QC, put forward some counter-arguments to suggest that on the contrary, there were no anomalies in the procedures employed by the judges at Leeds or Canterbury, and that the sentence was proportionate under the circumstances. Then it was time to break for lunch.

During the lunch break I had an opportunity to talk with Ezra Levant and to get his thoughts on how he felt the case was progressing. He said that the senior judge appeared very fair-minded and displayed some sympathy with the defence position through his questions and interventions.

I was interested to see a couple of Orthodox Jews in the public gallery – they declined to have their photographs taken but expressed great concern for the issues raised by Tommy Robinson during his campaign to highlight the depravity of Islamic grooming gangs. It just goes to show that the Tommy Robinson case affects all non-Muslims and not just the “racist”, “bigoted” and “Islamophobic” white working-class people as they have been unjustly portrayed in the mainstream media.

After the lunch break, the defence team explored some of the more technical aspects of the case in detail and summarised the case for the defence with the following arguments relating to the conviction and sentence handed down by the judge at Leeds Crown Court:

  • No attempt was made by the judge to identify the precise nature of the breach of Contempt of Court at the time
  • As a consequence, no detailed and appropriate discussions could take place in conference with Tommy’s defence counsel and no submissions could be made by defence counsel on behalf of Tommy at the time
  • Tommy was not told what specifically what he had done wrong, and the judge failed to set out the powers of punishment available to him
  • Insufficient time was allowed for Tommy to reflect upon the charge and to take advice from sufficiently qualified defence counsel at the time
  • Tommy was deprived of an opportunity to submit full and comprehensive  mitigation at the time
  • The sentence was disproportionate for a breach of Contempt of Court and the conditions under which Tommy is being held (albeit for his own safety) meant that he was being treated in an unduly harsh manner

Now this is my personal opinion, but I had a feeling that the senior judge, the Rt Hon Lord Chief Justice Burnett was leaning more strongly towards the arguments put forward by the Tommy’s defence counsel, and less strongly towards the counter-arguments put forward by the Crown prosecutor. However, after a short recess, the judges returned to announce that they were going to reserve judgment for the time being (not unusual in cases of this complexity) and would do their best to deliver a judgment before the end of July.

Naturally this result was a little bit of a disappointment to those in the public gallery who were hoping that Tommy would be released forthwith, but at least the judges did not dismiss the appeal out of hand, and no doubt wished to evaluate the impact of any precedent that might be forthcoming as a result of their judgment.

I have included here an interview with Vlad Tepes in which I elaborate on my thoughts concerning the trial and the events surrounding it.

When the date for the final verdict is announced, I intend to travel down to the Royal Courts of Justice once more in order to report on the proceedings and hopefully to interview the various personalities involved with the case and to get their reactions. Watch this space!

Free Tommy Robinson – Demonstration at Whitehall on Saturday 14 July 2018

 Peppa Pig causes a kerfuffle

Saturday 14 July saw yet another massive demonstration outside the gates of Downing Street. Patriots from every walk of life streamed into Whitehall to protest the unjust imprisonment of Tommy Robinson, who was jailed for a disproportionate 13 months following his arrest, charge, trial and conviction in the space of three hours on Friday 25 May – a process which would be unworthy of a kangaroo court in a banana republic.

There were a handful of so-called “Antifa” counter-protesters, who were safely corralled at the other end of Whitehall, holding up placards with the same tired and worn-out phrases that we have seen so many times before. Placards with phrases such as “Racists”, “Nazis”, “Islamophobes” and of course “Fascists” were displayed in abundance – all the while the real Fascists were wailing and gnashing their teeth at being unable to effectively counter the enormous demonstration of support for Tommy.

Despite the vilification of Tommy Robinson by the Left and in the MSM (the biased mainstream media) polls suggest that two-thirds of the British public think that he not only should not have been jailed, but also that the entire process was fundamentally flawed and desperately in need of review.

Once again, tens of thousands of loyal supporters turned up on a warm and sunny July afternoon to hear speeches from many prominent politicians (such as Gerard Batten, the current leader of UKIP and a man who really “gets” Islam and the numerous problems associated with its unwelcome presence in our country.)

The video of Gerard Batten’s speech can be found here.

It is an incredibly powerful speech and even if you do nothing else today, I would urge you to watch and listen to it in its entirety. Just how powerful can be gauged from the reported response of the snowflakes on the Left of the political spectrum, who have been clutching handkerchiefs to their collective bosom and reaching for the smelling salts.

There was also a very inspiring speech from Geert Wilders, which had to be presented via a video link as our government shamefully declined to provide any security for his intended visit on the day of the demonstration, and also would not allow his armed Dutch security detail to provide protection. Given that Geert Wilders has had to live with 24/7 security for the past decade, due to the ever-present threat of death from rabid Muslims, the governments’s position on this matter is indefensible.

The video of Geert Wilders’ speech can be found here.

There was also a speech given (via video link) from Malcolm Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who is a lone voice in the House of Lords protesting against the Islamisation of our country. In recent days, his call for investigations into the hate speech spewed from all too many mosques and Islamic institutions has been met with accusations from Their Lordships of – wait for it – “hate speech.” You couldn’t make it up.

The video of Lord Pearson’s speech can be found here.

There were many other speeches from politicians in France, Sweden and Germany – and an impassioned speech from Kev Carroll, the cousin of Tommy Robinson, who has been a steadfast supporter of Tommy for many years. The entire event was very professionally hosted by Raheem Kassam, the former editor-in-chief of Breitbart News London, who did an excellent job of controlling the crowd and explaining that the police were only there to protect them (although I’m not sure that I entirely agree with that.)

It is at this point that I must explain the significance of the Peppa Pig photo at the top of this article. The photograph was taken during an element of high drama during the afternoon’s proceedings, and I was there personally to witness what happened.

A woman in the crowd had obviously decided to express her disapproval of Sadiq “Saracen” Khan (the current Mayor of London who is manifestly unfit to hold mayoral office with his support for radical Islamist groups) and hoisted aloft a helium-filled Peppa Pig balloon with the likeness of Sadiq Khan attached to it.

Now, what with Sadiq “Saracen” Khan being a Muslim and all, there was always a possibility that some Muslim, somewhere in the world, would become offended (they don’t call Islam the Religion of the Perpetually Offended for nothing, you know.) This prompted a dozen or so police officers to force their way into the crowd mob-handed to try and arrest the woman in question. The incident even prompted a contingent of mounted police officers to drive their horses into the crowd, which I personally felt was an unnecessary provocation in the face of what was essentially a peaceful protest.

During the scuffle, where many patriots who were surrounding the woman chanted “Shame on you! Shame on you!” towards the police – the balloon miraculously escaped the clutches of the police as it was passed from hand to hand through the crowd. Every now and then it would reappear, hovering above the crowd, tethered with a bit of colourful ribbon, and eventually the police gave up trying to retrieve it.

This could well add fuel to the fire of “Balloon Wars” where patriots have rightfully mocked the current Mayor of London for his support of a Trump blimp at a recent anti-Trump protest in London. They do say that “what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander” – and even Michael Fabricant, the Conservative MP for Lichfield, has got in on the action.

      Balloon Wars

Far be it from me to suggest that the display of numerous Peppa Pig balloons should become “de rigueur” at future patriotic events, balloons adorned with not only the likeness of Sadiq “Saracen” Khan, but perhaps also with the likeness of Fiyaz “Fizzy Bollocks” Mughal, the founder and Mendacious Grievance-Mongering Taqiyya-Artist-In-Chief of Tell Mama UK. The presence of hundreds, if not thousands of these balloons would undoubtedly complement the usual array of patriotic flags on display at such an event, although it would also no doubt be misrepresented as “racist”, “bigoted” and “Islamophobic” by the biased mainstream media.

But I digress.

An appeal has been scheduled for Wednesday 18 July at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, and I intend to be there to report on it in person. The mainstream media can no longer be trusted to give accurate and unbiased information to the public, and it now falls to citizen journalists to present the truths that our political elites find inconvenient.

I am sure you will all join me in hoping and praying for a favourable outcome for Tommy Robinson, a much-maligned true British hero who has been unjustly treated by the Establishment in their clumsy attempts to cover-up the scandal of Islamic Grooming gangs and other manifestations of the presence of Islam – a barbaric, totalitarian political ideology which (in my humble opinion) has no place in any civilised Western country.

Patriots On Trial – John Banks takes on the system at Doncaster Magistrates Court

  Justice in Doncaster

On Wednesday 04 July I attended a civil hearing at Doncaster Magistrates Court, where a prominent patriot and political activist, John Banks, was fighting to defend his freedom to protest against the Islamisation of our country.

He was also there to defend his right to forcefully criticise government policies – and to criticise those organs of the state complicit in perpetuating those policies whilst at the same time trying to cover-up a well-orchestrated programme of enormous injustice against the British people.

I have known John a long time, both as a political activist and as a friend, and I have long felt that the systematic persecution of such patriots and political activists should be reported on and openly discussed so that “we the people” can realise the extent that the State will go to suppress the righteous indignation of ordinary citizens who see what is unfolding right in front of them and who wish to warn others of the inevitable outcome, which may well extend to civil war on our streets within a generation.

John Banks has a long and honourable history of standing up and saying the things that the State would rather not have said or broadcast. I have attended several events where John has given powerful and impassioned speeches concerning not only the Islamisation of our country, but the attempted cover-up of one of the most outrageous scandals of our time – the rape and trafficking of thousands of our young and vulnerable children by predatory Muslim rape gangs – or as the media would say – “grooming gangs” as detailed in the 2014 book “Easy Meat” by Peter McLoughlin.

Needless to say, John has had to contend with some of the worst things that the State has been able to throw at him, and on this occasion he was required to appear before Deputy District Judge Russell in a civil hearing to determine whether he should be jailed for breaching the terms of an ASBO.

An ASBO is short for an Anti-Social Behaviour Order. These were originally devised to deal with children and teenagers whose rowdiness occasionally got out of hand, and rather than to subject them to the full criminal court process, it would deal with behaviour that “caused -or was capable of causing – harm, harassment, alarm or distress to any person.”

“Any person.” Not “any reasonable person.”

Any person who was, or could have possibly been, or who could claim to have been “alarmed or distressed” by the actions of John Banks or any other individual, could have his complaint dealt with via a legal process resulting in an Anti-Social Behaviour Order. It is not difficult to see how easily this process could be abused to suppress thoroughly justified and politically motivated protests by patriots such as John Banks.

On this occasion at Doncaster Magistrates Court, the police were trying to argue that John was in breach of an ASBO issued when he made a political protest that was deemed not to have met evidential standards that would have justified criminal charges.

This was serious. If John had been found to be in breach of his ASBO, he could be facing six months to two years imprisonment, and this was at a time when various political activists such as Jayda Fransen, Paul Golding and Tommy Robinson had recently been jailed on various trumped-up charges – all of which fell into the category of “activities that make the State look bad when it has become obvious that the State has become derelict in its primary duty of keeping its citizens safe.”

On the morning of Wednesday 04 July, the police opened their case by playing some CCTV recordings of John Banks speaking at various rallies in Manchester, Rotherham and Sunderland. There were snorts of derision from the public gallery when it became obvious that the police prosecutor was unable to get to grips with the “ClickLink” video system designed to communicate CCTV recordings to everyone in the courtroom, and even  more so when the bundles of documents comprising the evidence against John were presented to the judge, as they were hopelessly disorganised.

Eventually the police prosecutor had to resort to playing the CCTV recordings on his laptop, once to the judge, and once to the defence counsel and the rest of us in the public gallery. Full marks for improvisation, I suppose, although one could easily see that the judge was not impressed.

The CCTV recordings admittedly showed John using “colourful” language to denounce the Islamisation of our country, and to denounce the predatory behaviour of increasing numbers of Islamic grooming gangs.

He was also very scathing concerning the seeming inability of the police, social services and government to effectively deal with the increasing problems that have been caused over the last 20-30 years as a result.

However, at no time was John seen to be inciting murder or mayhem, and he was careful to draw a distinction between Muslims as people and the ideology of Islam itself. He only said what many of us already knew – that if things kept going the way they were, then we were headed for very dark times indeed, and that we were now in a perilous situation that could have easily been avoided if only the State had not been guilty of gross dereliction of duty in its failure to keep its citizens safe.

After much discussion back and forth between the police prosecutor and the judge, it eventually transpired that one of the CCTV recordings was missing. A courier was dispatched to track down the errant CCTV recording and in the meantime the trial was momentarily postponed.

During the break I was able to chat with John Morley, who was acting as an advocate for John Banks. I told him that I wished that I had had him representing me at my trial at Southwark Crown Court in 2017. He would have made short work of Fiyaz “Fizzy Bollocks” Mughal in the courtroom.

Eventually the errant CCTV recording was delivered to Judge Russell and the case resumed. The police prosecutor argued that John had been obstructing the police in their duty of arresting Jayda Fransen at a public rally, however Judge Russell appeared to acknowledge the argument put forward by the defence that on the contrary, the CCTV recording showed that John was merely trying to have Jayda escorted through the crowd towards the police lines in a safe manner, and that there was no attempt to obstruct the police.

Despite our initial forebodings, Judge Russell found that although John Banks’ actions undoubtedly constituted “behaviour causing, or capable of causing harm, harassment, alarm or distress to any person” under the current wording of the Act relating to Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, the case was not strong enough to allow the police to exercise their “powers of arrest” in this instance.

Not only that, but as the original ASBO had come with no time restrictions, the Judge set a limitation of twelve months for the duration of the ASBO. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth from the police prosecutor, who having seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory in terms of having John summarily arrested, had argued that the ASBO should at the very least have been kept in place for an extended period of time.

I was pleased -as I am sure most of John’s numerous supporters who were present at the hearing were pleased -to see John emerge from the Court a free man (albeit with a twelve-month restriction on his political activities.)

In my opinion both John Banks and his advocate John Morley deserve medals for heroism in the face of the enemy, although I doubt whether our current spineless Prime Minister Theresa May would agree. We will probably not see a nomination for Lord Banks of Doncaster any time soon. However, the battle to save our country continues, and as the old Buddhist saying has it – “Never underestimate the power of one drop of water. On its own it may seem insignificant, but over time it will wear away the biggest stone, or fill the largest ocean.”

Shock horror – Pro-Brexit demonstration in London largely unreported by mainstream media

   We want Brexit

On Saturday 23 June 2018, tens of thousands of patriotic Britons marched from Victoria Station to the Conservative Party headquarters in Millbank, London. The objective was to show the strength of feeling concerning the fact that the anticipated exit from the EU – following the Brexit referendum from exactly two years ago – has been extremely badly handled by this government, and we are now rapidly heading towards a scenario of “no deal” with the European Union due to a combination of intransigence and unreasonable demands from the negotiating team on the EU side, and a distinct impression of incompetence coupled with a general unwillingness to confront the problems and exploit our strong negotiating position from the British side.

For make no mistake, we do have an extremely strong negotiating position insofar as the EU have a lot more to lose from Brexit than we do, and there is no need for us to be offering the EU tens of billions of pounds for the privilege of leaving behind this corrupt bureaucratic system and its waste, inefficiency, and profligate disregard for the wishes of ordinary European citizens.

I was privileged to be there myself, on what turned out to be a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon in London. After the march from Victoria to Millbank with all the other patriots, I saw and heard for myself the passionate speeches delivered by the UKIP leader Gerard Batten, the For Britain leader Anne-Marie Waters, and many other speakers including Luke Nash-Jones of MBGA, the ex-Muslim Shazia Hobbs, who had some choice things to say about Tell Mama UK, and last but not least the founder of “Justice 4 Our Boys”, Tracy Blackwell.

The enthusiasm of patriots was everywhere on display, and there were flags and banners from many patriotic groups including MBGA (Make Britain Great Again) and UKFM (United Kingdom Freedom Movement). There was also a strong presence from the VAT (Veterans against Terrorism) and the DFLA (Democratic Football Lads Alliance) who have organised several events throughout the country over the past 12 months, with an emphasis on protests against Islamic terrorism and more recently, the unjust imprisonment of Tommy Robinson on a Contempt of Court charge.

There have been many videos of the event uploaded to YouTube, and I have included a link to one of them here.  You can see for yourselves that the demonstrators numbered in the tens of thousands.

There was also an anti-Brexit demonstration taking place in London on the same day, and the most striking thing for me was the media coverage given to these two events. The mainstream media focused almost exclusively on the anti-Brexit demonstration in Parliament Square, and for the most part ignored the pro-Brexit demonstration altogether.

Here are some typical mainstream media reports from the BBC, the Guardian and the Independent,  all of which have been trying to outdo themselves in “bigging up” the numbers involved on the anti-Brexit side. If you hadn’t been paying attention to the reports from citizen journalists and the alternative media outlets, you would have been left with the impression that while the anti-Brexit event attracted hundreds of thousands of demonstrators (a gross exaggeration belied by aerial photographs taken at the event on the day) – the pro-Brexit demonstrators consisted of merely “hundreds” of “Little Englanders” and “racist, bigoted, Islamophobic and far-right” football hooligans out to cause trouble.

This is sloppy and unprofessional journalism of the worst kind, and while I am not surprised to see the Guardian and the Independent promoting the anti-Brexit point of view, I and many others are rapidly becoming disheartened with, and disappointed in the BBC – who, it should be remembered, was once a beacon of professional and impartial journalism that was respected around the world. Not any more, it would seem.

Admittedly the numbers do not tell the whole story, but the fact remains that a majority (17.4 million people) voted in the UK for Brexit two years ago and since then the EU has increasingly shown its true colours as an unaccountable bureaucratic entity, intent on imposing a globalist federalist structure on the citizens of Europe with an emphasis on destroying nation states through a process of unfettered immigration – coupled with severe penalties for speaking out against this inherently destabilising and undemocratic process.

Already we have seen that in Germany, anyone posting articles on social media that are critical of government and EU policy, especially (but not limited to) immigration and the consequent rise in terrorism, violent crime and anti-social behaviour, are treated as if they were criminals themselves, with draconian fines and jail sentences handed down in order to deter others from speaking out. The European Union elites are pushing for this state of affairs to be implemented throughout Europe by means of the Barcelona Declaration, and more recently the Marrakesh Declaration.

Do we want to be part of this? The people of Britain have spoken – and the answer is a resounding “No!” Although there may be some disruption and perhaps some (limited) financial consequences for leaving the EU, it should be remembered that we were a strong and independent trading nation once, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to be so once again.

You cannot put a price on sovereignty, independence and the control of our own borders, especially at a time when the EU is descending into tyranny and the global threat from Islamic terror together with the adverse effects of the increasing Islamisation of our countries has never been greater.

It is becoming clear that we cannot trust those in government to deliver the “will of the people” as expressed through the Brexit referendum, and that the mainstream media are complicit in this process. This will not end well – my own prediction is for civil war on our streets within a generation if the “will of the people” is not respected at this critical time in our history.

I do not make this dire prediction lightly, but the chances of obtaining any meaningful result at the ballot box in the time left available to us – before the Muslim demographic reaches a tipping point – are receding day by day, and history has taught us that when the proportion of Muslims in any given population reaches critical mass (which need not necessarily be a majority) then civil conflict is inevitable.

Here’s why the fate of Tommy Robinson should concern us all – it’s about much more than just one person

As most of you will know by now, Tommy Robinson was arrested, charged, tried, convicted and imprisoned within the space of five hours on Friday 25 May 2018 on a spurious charge of Contempt of Court. This highly unusual and controversial process was then subjected to a media blackout by order of the judge (although this was later overturned.)

The following day, Saturday 26 May, saw an enormous outpouring of outrage culminating in a demonstration outside Downing Street in London. Many people could not believe that the country that they believed in and loved so passionately could be capable of jailing someone whose primary concern was the preservation of our freedoms, hard-won by our ancestors and forefathers on the fields of battle over the past one thousand years.

Since then, we have had demonstrations all around the world, involving people of every race, creed and colour who have come to realise that our freedoms depend solely upon those who are willing to fight for them, and that if we do not fight for those freedoms when they are threatened, we will find that they have been taken away from us by those who wish merely to preserve their own selfish interests.

The time has come to stand up and say – “No More.” Tommy Robinson MUST be freed, and those who have been complicit in his persecution over the years must be brought to account. This includes not only the treasonous government who would stand by and see our freedoms taken away in order to appease Islam, but also the police and the judiciary who are complicit in the steady drip-drip-drip removal of our freedoms under the guise of “community cohesion” – a phrase which really means “don’t upset the Muslims because their first reaction is to use violence against the rest of us.”

For make no mistake, it is the cowardice of our political elites, the cowardice of our police and judiciary and the cowardice of all the other organs of the state that has allowed this situation to develop.

The problems associated with Islam should have been dealt with robustly thirty or forty years ago, when it was starting to become apparent that many of the followers of Islam were displaying criminal and anti-social tendencies in far greater proportions as a percentage of the population. Instead, they were treated with kid gloves and allowed to get away with behaviour that would never have been tolerated if the perpetrators were not Muslim. At that time, anyone who noticed what was happening and spoke out was either ignored or called a “racist”, “bigot” and “Islamophobe.”

Who now would wish to put their head above the parapet and condemn Islam for the barbaric, totalitarian, anti-democratic seventh-century ideology that it is, if it would result in their losing their job, or being publicly criticised and hounded, maybe even doxxed, and running the risk of imprisonment or worse?

We need to stand up and say with one voice that we will no longer tolerate this state of affairs that will have only one outcome – the enslavement and subjugation of the once-proud people of Britain under the shackles of Islam, aided and abetted by the treasonous left-wing politicians and the mainstream media.

For those of you who think that I am exaggerating, I invite you to look at the template that Islam has used over the past 1400 years to subjugate so many previously proud and free peoples – Hindus and Sikhs in India, Buddhists in Asia, and Christians and Jews in France and Spain (until the 700-year long Reconquista was finally successful in 1492.)

We need a Reconquista of our own, a Reconquista to completely expel Islam from our Judaeo-Christian democratic societies, not only throughout Britain but throughout the whole of Europe. Despite the predictable attempts of the mainstream media to smear him as a “racist”, “bigot” and “Islamophobe”, Tommy Robinson is just the man to lead the charge.

He has the tenacity of the Duke of Wellington and the doggedness of Winston Churchill in the face of adversity, and I exhort you all to support Tommy in whatever way you can, whether it be by demonstrations such as the one planned for Saturday 14 July in Whitehall, or by simply raising awareness among your local communities.

Write to your MP, or perhaps attend their constituency surgeries and remind them that they are there to serve “we the people” rather than to simply line their own pockets. Every MP who cares about freedom should make the freedom of Tommy Robinson one of the top priorities, if not the top priority, on their agenda.

Whatever you do, don’t let Tommy languish in vain in one of Her Majesty’s Prisons, surrounded by Muslims who would kill him without a second thought if they had the opportunity, just because he has spoken out against the depredations of Islam and its tendency to produce large numbers of violent, criminal and anti-social people – people who are commanded by Islamic scripture never to assimilate or integrate into other cultures and communities, and certainly never into our civilised Western communities.

I am sure that most non-Muslims, if they were asked, would say that they would prefer to live in peace with their Muslim neighbours, as equals, in perpetuity. The truth is that Islam simply will not allow this to happen, and every non-Muslim needs to understand this truth, rather than to accept blame from others (or to blame themselves) for not being sufficiently charitable and understanding concerning the all-too-frequent violent, criminal and anti-social behaviour perpetrated by Muslims in our societies.

Tommy Robinson supporters climb gates of Downing Street after his arrest and imprisonment – Media silent

      Tommy Robinson

As you will have no doubt heard by now, Tommy Robinson has been arrested and imprisoned following his live coverage of an Islamic grooming gang outside Leeds Crown Court. This is simply wrong on so many levels.

I could comment at length on the dire implications for free speech in this country, but many independent political commentators have already posted articles and video clips on YouTube that explain the situation very well.

For example:

Fahrenheit 211

Info Wars

Ezra Levant

Stefan Molyneux

The Government has issued what is effectively a “D” notice prohibiting the mainstream media from reporting anything related to the arrest of Tommy Robinson and his manifestly unjust imprisonment. By extension, the media are prevented from reporting on the Whitehall / Downing Street protests that took place on Saturday 26 May, and will no doubt be prevented from reporting on the protests that will take place at Speakers Corner on Sunday.

If you are unable to attend the event in London at Speakers Corner, may I suggest that you follow the live blogging and live streaming videos that will inevitably be found on the Internet. The mainstream media will tell us absolutely nothing about what is happening, and even when they consider that a subject may be reported on, they will spin the news to make it look like that the protesters are nothing but a bunch of drunken hooligans out for a good time, rather than the concerned patriots that they really are.

To make matters worse, Facebook and Twitter are shadow-banning any accounts that appear to have a conservative viewpoint. They have been doing this “under the radar” for months, but now it is obvious even to the meanest intelligence that there is a concerted effort to crack down on our freedom of speech and to take away our ability to criticise anything that the Government finds problematic, such as Islam for example.

The Government is terrified of political movements that may rise up and overthrow them – a good example might be of the Poll Tax riots of 1990 – and while I am not suggesting that supporters of Tommy Robinson should instigate riots, I think that everyone of goodwill – that is to say, every non-Muslim and every concerned patriot – should get out onto the streets in large numbers and demonstrate to the Government that enough is enough.

Many people have said to me that the only way to effect change is through the ballot box, but we simply do not have enough time to effect the political change needed by the peaceful democratic means that have been open to us up to now. The Islamisation of this country is advancing like a steamroller – crushing all opposition rather than allowing peaceful and open discussion – and it is aided and abetted by those who would use violence to shut us down.

The hooded thugs of “Antifa” – a misnomer if ever there was one, as they are the most fascist and intolerant bunch of people you are ever likely to come across, and I should know – are being encouraged by the Government to intimidate anyone and everyone with a conservative viewpoint from expressing those views in public. The parallel with Hitler’s Brownshirts in the 1930’s is unmistakable, and it is a recipe for disaster.

Not only that, but many people working in professions such as the police, the National Health Service, local government and education – including, I might add, my own two daughters – have been intimidated and threatened with the loss of their jobs if they dare to express politically incorrect opinions concerning Islam. This stifling of our free speech has to stop now, and the only way to stop it in the time we have left before Islam strangles the life out of our democracy is by direct action, to generate enough momentum so that the Government understands that the depth of feeling in this country will lead to their overthrow if they do not change direction and deal with the numerous and manifest problems that Islam causes.

Islam is not going to stop of its own accord. It cannot be reformed. It cannot be bargained with, or reasoned with. It will not stop until we are all either dead, converted to Islam, or subjugated as dhimmis. It advances using fear, violence, intimidation and terror, and if the demographic does not change then before too long we will see a Muslim majority in this country that will use our democracy to stifle and eventually eliminate democracy itself.

This approach has worked very well for Islam for the last 1400 years, and there is no reason for Islam to change tack when it is following what it sees as a successful strategy. It has to be stopped, by peaceful means if possible, but by force if necessary. We have to stop it for the sake of our children and grandchildren. We owe them that much at least.

I will leave you with the words of John F Kennedy – “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

Don’t say you haven’t been warned. And keep Tommy Robinson in your thoughts, as his time in prison is likely to turn out to be a death sentence.

More Taqiyya from Faith Matters under a new name – Muslims Against Anti-Semitism

Well, well. Not content with painting Muslims as perpetual victims through the medium of Tell Mama UK, the “umbrella” organisation of Faith Matters (through the direction of Fiyaz “Fizzy Bollocks” Mughal, the Mendacious Grievance-Mongering Taqiyya-Artist-In-Chief) has created a new group – obviously with the intention to dispel the notion that Islam has something to do with the rampant anti-Semitism coming from the Muslim community in Western countries in general, and in the UK in particular.

Because as everyone knows, or should know, according to Fiyaz Mughal – that Islam has nothing – nothing whatsoever – to do with anti-Semitism or indeed any of the numerous manifest evils currently being inflicted on non-Muslims by Muslims acting in the name of Allah, and if you should dare to think otherwise, well, then you are nothing but a greasy Islamophobe, not to mention “far-right”, “bigoted” and “racist.”

What race is Islam again? I keep forgetting.

This new group is called Muslims against Anti-Semitism (MAAS) and they have taken out extensive media advertising in the UK in order to pull the wool over the eyes of non-Muslims concerning the verses in the Koran that disparage Jews and command Muslims to hate those of the Jewish faith.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

This is quite apart from the fact that hating ALL non-Muslims (Jews or otherwise) is commanded in Islamic scripture through the doctrine of Al-Walaa wal-Baraa.

  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ – (Allegiance and Disassociation) is an Islamic doctrine that is very similar to apartheid.
  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ is an ‘essential doctrine’ (usul ud-deen). ‘Essential’ means that all Muslims must believe and practice al Walaa wal Baraa as a condition of being admitted to paradise.
  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ is a highly developed, well-supported and canonical part of Islam approved by the consensus of Islamic jurists.
  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ is legally binding and obligatory upon all Muslims.
  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ is precisely defined by Islamic jurists and is not a nebulous idea
  • ‘Al Walaa wal Baraa’ is an official Islamic doctrine and considered the second most important doctrine in Islam.

Muslims against Anti-Semitism? I don’t think so, Fiyaz. Enough of the Taqiyya already. If you are a devout Muslim then you MUST by necessity hate for the sake of Allah, that is, to hate everyone non-Muslim and / or everything non-Islamic (this is the doctrine of al-Walaa wal-Baraa.) The logical corollary to this is that you CANNOT be considered to be a true Muslim if you do not hate everyone and everything that is non-Muslim and / or non-Islamic.

Any Muslim who wishes to live side-by-side with non-Muslims as equals, in perpetuity (that is to say, not just until the Muslims are strong enough in number to wage jihad against the non-Muslims) should follow the path of intellectual honesty and renounce Islam in its entirety. It is a barbaric, totalitarian ideology with absolutely zero benefit to Western civilisation.

Some Muslims do just that, and apostasise from Islam, at great risk to themselves, it has to be said. The penalty for apostasy under Islam is death, which is why we don’t see more Muslims apostasise, at least in public. In fact, Sheikh al-Qaradawi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, stated in 2013 that “If it were not for the death sentence for apostasy, Islam would have ceased to exist a thousand years ago.”

But don’t try and kid us that Islam has nothing to do with the virulent anti-Semitism that has arisen wherever Muslims have become more than a tiny percentage of the population. Islam has everything to do with it, and it has everything to do with Islam.

May this go down as a pivotal point in the proud history of our beloved country – The Day For Freedom March – London 06 May 2018

   Milo Yiannopoulos

On Sunday 06 May 2018 I was privileged to be part of the Day For Freedom march and demonstration in Whitehall (London) outside the entrance to Downing Street. Many thousands of people marched from Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park to the main event in Downing Street, in support of our rapidly dwindling rights to Freedom of Speech in this country.

From my vantage point just outside the gates of Downing Street I had a perfect view of not only the main stage where the speeches were given, I could assess with about 80% accuracy (according to scientific studies on the matter) the strength of support for our Freedom of Speech. It was surprisingly large, and many of the speakers at the event commented on it.

Crowd counting (estimating the number of people in a crowd) is an inexact science, depending on whether people are packed tightly together (as in a mosh pit) or more loosely packed (elbow to elbow, as in a demonstration or rally of this type) however one can come up with an estimate of numbers which is accurate to around 80% – that is, within a 20% margin of error.

People from all walks of life, and a wide variety of races and ethnicities were represented at the event, together with groups such as the Football Lads Alliance, MBGA (Make Britain Great Again), the DFLA, Anne-Marie Waters’ For Britain, and Veterans Against Terrorism. But for the most part, these were just ordinary people who were fed up with the progressive loss of our freedoms over the past few decades, and who wished to stand up with the rest of us and say “No More!”

Mainstream media reports of the event were few and far between, with only the London Evening Standard, the Metro and the Guardian deigning the event worthy of interest. (I am discounting reports that appeared in the so-called “men’s magazine” GQ, various Russian TV outlets, and Horse and Hound ) which reported that there were two horses on duty outside Horse Guard’s Parade just up the road (and very well turned out they were too.)

Now, working on an estimate of 4.5 square feet per person, loosely packed elbow to elbow, and taking into account that an area of approximately 150 feet wide by 800 feet that I could see from my vantage position (120,000 square feet, the area of Whitehall in front of the stage that I estimate was packed with people for the duration of the event, it might have been more) then there would have been around 25,000 / 30,000 people present. (Some people have estimated that it could have been significantly more than that, but as I have said, crowd counting is not an exact science. It certainly wasn’t any less, irrespective of what the London Evening Standard, the Metro and The Guardian might have had to say about it.)

All this when the London football teams Arsenal and Chelsea were playing at home to Liverpool and Burnley, and other football matches were taking place up and down the country – otherwise I am sure that a large percentage of the football-supporting population of the country would have turned out and the numbers would have been at least twice as many as they were in the event.

Most of the mainstream media deliberately under-reported the size of the crowd, no doubt due to discourage other law-abiding people from thinking that this was an event of any significance.

The event was very professionally handled – the unwashed lefties of Hope Not Soap and so-called “anti-fascists” (by which I mean “Antifa” supporters, who ironically are the very epitome of fascism and intolerance) were kept at a safe distance by the police, and a high quality of audio was delivered by the PA sound system organised by Tommy Robinson (although this didn’t necessarily translate into high quality audio everywhere on the Internet.)

There may well be other high quality audio recordings out there – I leave it to the ingenuity of my readers to search them out. It will be time well spent, as every single speaker had something moving, positive and passionate to deliver at the event. (If you can find them, please forward any good quality audio / video transcripts to me at tim@counterjihadwarrior.com so that I can disseminate and publish them on my website.)

I recommend that you listen to the speeches in their entirety – they were all delivered with a passion and an intensity that I have never encountered during all my years of attending counter-jihad / freedom of speech events.

My thoughts at the end of the day were – Maybe this IS a pivotal moment. Maybe we really DO have the ability – through large and ever-increasing numbers of patriots prepared to turn out en masse and to put their heads above the parapet – to deliver change. As much as I and many others would prefer peaceful change at the ballot box, it is becoming increasingly likely that this problem is NOT going to be solved by votes at the ballot box in the time we have available, and it is never going to go away of its own accord. Muslim demographics are increasing and will continue to increase – with all of the the accompanying problems that wreak havoc in our societies – unless firm and draconian measures are taken to deal with it – RIGHT NOW.

I particularly enjoyed Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech (Milo was banned from giving a presentation at his old school in England in 2016.) Other speakers included Anne-Marie Waters, Gavin McInnes, Gerard Batten (the leader of UKIP) Sargon of Akkad, Marcus Meechan (Count Dankula) and of course Tommy Robinson, who was on the verge of tears as he described the racist murder of three young men (Josh Kennedy, George Wilkinson and Harry Rice) covered up by the police, the Government and the mainstream media.

Why the cover-up? Because the police, the Government and the mainstream media did not want the fact that they were murdered by a Muslim – who brutally and callously mowed them down with his car because of who they were (non-Muslims) and not because of anything they might have done – the “powers that be” did not want this fact to become public knowledge.

Why protest for Freedom of Speech, you may ask? This event was absolutely necessary, given the clear and present dangers that we face as a result of the increasing Islamisation of our country. This event was necessary, not just simply because a number of prominent and vociferous “right-wing” conservative personalities had their Twitter and Facebook accounts suspended, but because Freedom of Speech is under attack everywhere in the West as Islam insinuates its tentacles into every aspect of our society.

This is not just “radical” or “fundamentalist” or “extremist” Islam – this is mainstream Islam, red in tooth and claw, and together with the twin evils of political correctness and multiculturalism, if they are left to their own devices they will endeavour use our tolerant, open democracy to criminalise any criticism of Islam, thereby removing our ability to effectively fight against Jihad and those who would impose barbaric Sharia laws upon us.

The supporters of this event were predictably labelled “racist”, “far-right” and “Islamophobic” by the mainstream media – terms which have no meaning when they are analysed critically and dispassionately – 1) Islam is not a race, 2) everything looks “far-right” when you are on the far-left, and 3) to quote Bare Naked Islam – there is no such thing as Islamophobia – it isn’t a phobia when they (radical Muslims) REALLY ARE trying to kill you.

For those of you out there who say – Islam is a Religion of Peace and that any criticism of such a Peaceful Religion is beyond the pale – I say wake up and smell the coffee.

Paul Weston – How to Destroy a Country

       Paul Weston

I am reproducing this video from July 2015 because I wish to invite my readers to compare the video and the accompanying transcript with the events that have transpired  in the intervening three years.

Many of the predictions that Paul Weston has made have come true – and some of the predictions have been surpassed by the draconian censorship of social media which has resulted in the “shadow-banning” of accounts on Twitter and Facebook, and the charging, prosecution, conviction and jailing of patriots under unjust “hate-crime” laws which are frequently invoked to persecute those who merely wish to speak the truth.

Here is the transcript from this video:

Paul Weston: How to Destroy a Country — TRANSCRIPT

We are in a war – a war against Islam and the forces arrayed against us on the left of the political spectrum. The most important thing in fighting any war is to KNOW YOUR ENEMY. Paul Weston’s video provides a blueprint in helping us to fight that enemy.

As Sun Tzu says in “The Art of War”

If you know the enemy and
know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred
battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy,
for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If
you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb
in every battle.

Anne-Marie Waters’ For Britain party campaigns in Sandwell local elections

     Anne-Marie Waters

Normally I wouldn’t comment on local authority elections, but on Sunday 29 April I was privileged to attend a For Britain meeting in Sandwell, West Midlands. For Britain is a new political party in the UK led by Anne-Marie Waters, and is poised to deliver a powerful challenge to the established two-party system that has dominated politics in the UK for over half a century.

Anne-Marie was introduced to an audience of around 100 local people by Darryl Magher, one of three potential councillors for Sandwell, and wasted no time in projecting her vision for her new party, and why it was so important that a viable alternative to the existing political order should be introduced at this time.

As Anne-Marie explained, mainstream Labour and Conservative politicians at both the national and local level have become increasingly remote from – and dismissive of – their electorates. For these politicians, eye-watering six-figure salaries (four or five times the national average) together with gold-plated pensions are increasingly common, and at the same time, their accountability has decreased to the point where there is very little incentive for them to try to solve the many problems that affect the day-to-day life of people in their constituencies.

Anne-Marie gave numerous specific examples of the corrupt behaviour and incompetence of Labour and Conservative politicians over the last twenty or thirty years, and pointed out that if it had been their own children who were affected by their lack of action, their incompetence and their complacency, then their behaviour might have been very different. As things stand, there have been no serious consequences for those politicians, and in many cases the worst that has happened is that those politicians have been quietly moved to other jobs, with their salaries and pensions untouched, so that the appearance can be given that the problems that they have caused have been addressed.  Of course, from then on things are back to “business as usual.”

Anne-Marie’s party – For Britain – is targeting those voters who have become more and more disillusioned with the current two-party system, and perhaps more importantly, targeting the most disillusioned one-third of the electorate who have given up voting altogether, largely for the reasons given above.

Although it is admittedly unlikely that one-third of the electorate are suddenly going to vote For Britain at the next election, there are obvious “push” factors that will increasingly work in favour of For Britain.

As more and more decent, working-class and middle class Britons find themselves increasingly disenfranchised due to the inevitable (and manifestly deleterious) consequences of diversity, multiculturalism and political correctness, they will naturally be drawn to a party that offers a viable alternative without running the risk of being unjustly smeared as “racist”, “bigoted” and / or “Islamophobic.”

     For Britain (Logo)

To make this point, an ex-Muslim speaker was introduced – Mo Fyaz – who vividly described his journey towards enlightenment, having grown up in an oppressive Islamic environment. He described having to memorise large parts of the Koran, in Arabic, without even the slightest understanding of what the verses meant, other than that their recitation apparently pleased Allah. When in his early teenage years, he started to question Islam and the Koran, and was horrified by what he found concerning the hatred that Islam teaches towards the rest of humanity. Although he was discouraged by his parents, his friends and siblings, and of course his Islamic teachers, he embarked upon a journey of  investigation and discovery which culminated in his leaving Islam forever.

He gave numerous examples of how dangerous it was to leave the ideology of Islam, as even in our country, the UK, apostates were shunned by the rest of the Islamic community and not only faced ostracism but in some cases a very real risk of physical injury and death at the hands of members of their former co-religionists.

Although, perhaps like many of us in such a situation,  he appeared a little nervous while speaking in public, he described his enthusiasm at having found a political environment within For Britain that presented realistic solutions to some of the problems he had experienced. Consequently, he did a great job of reassuring the Sandwell audience (of many different races and ethnicities) that they had nothing to fear, nothing to lose and everything to gain from supporting the sensible leadership and well-thought-out policies of For Britain.

As with any other political party just starting out, potential voters need to have the policies of that party clearly explained to them, and For Britain is no exception. On their website, it is emphasised that For Britain stands for the Common Sense Majority, and their priorities are – 1) an efficient, meaningful exit from the EU following the Brexit vote, 2) restoration of the Rule of Law to ensure that there is one law for all, 3) an end to political indoctrination of our children within the educational system, 4) a dramatic reduction of immigration to restore stability in our communities, 5) bringing stability to the public sector including the police and armed forces, 6) the ending of the Islamisation of the UK and the abolition of sharia councils, 7) the protection of British culture in the public space, 8) Freedom of Speech and 9) putting the interests of British people first, rather than interests of immigrants and so-called “refugees” who in many if not most cases are simply economic migrants.

Anne Marie took some questions from the audience in a spirited Q&A discussion, and made the point that political events are rapidly moving in a direction where more and more decent people become disenfranchised and thereby find themselves having nothing left to lose. It stands to reason that a political party like For Britain with integrity, good leadership and a well-thought-out set of policies is perfectly positioned to pick up millions of votes and give the Establishment a well-deserved kick in the Fizzys whilst at the same time restoring a sensible and stable political environment.

For that reason, and for all the other reasons listed above, even though this was the first For Britain political meeting I have attended, I would advise all my readers to seriously consider becoming members of For Britain, to vote for them wherever possible, and to donate whatever you can to the cause of restoring much-needed sanity to the political arena in  our beloved country.
