A most unwelcome development

Across Europe with Tommy Robinson: inside the new wave of anti-immigration protest coming soon to Britain

The EDL founder has just announced ‘Pegida UK’ – part of an international network of far-Right activism given new life by the refugee crisis

Late Monday night in Dresden, Germany, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson gave a speech to a large group of Pegida supporters. He told the crowd that he’s been working with nationalist groups across Europe in order to coordinate a Europe wide movement that seeks to, in his words, counter the “Islamification of our countries”. The first demo, he said, will be taking place on February 6, 2016, in at least 12 European countries simultaneously, all marching under a single banner: ‘’Save our Country. Save our Culture. Save Our Future.”

  1. Brum – terrorist epicentre?

    Well there is some supporting evidence for that(though I gathered Luton was just as bad)

    “Three men who hoped to become suicide bombers and launch a massive campaign of violence across the UK have been found guilty of terrorism charges.
    Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid and Ashik Ali, all from Birmingham, face life sentences for plans to detonate up to eight bombs.
    This latest terrorist case once again focuses attention on Birmingham, with those caught up in this plot living in the Sparkbrook and Sparkhill districts of the city.”

    These deeply unprepossessing individuals quite openly collected money on the main road in Sparkbrook, stopping traffic for this nefarious purpose. The nearby districts of Washwood Heath and Alum Rock also have a bad reputation.

    What passes for authority must also have believed that there was substance in what Robinson is saying now, for why else would they have installed this sophisticated surveillance system?

    “Birmingham ANPR cameras aimed at Muslims
    About 150 automatic numberplate recognition (ANPR) cameras have been installed in two Muslim areas, paid for by a government anti-terrorism fund”

    http://www.theguardian.com/government-computing-network/2010/jun/07/birmingham-anpr-cameras-muslims-anti-terror-07jun10

    Typically there was a subsequent climbdown with an abject surrender to Guardian outrage

    “A project to spy on two Muslim areas in Birmingham using more than 200 CCTV cameras has been dramatically halted after an investigation by the Guardian revealed it was a counterterrorism initiative.”

    • But you missed a later Guardian article , and that is the really interesting one:
      http://www.theguardian.com/uk/2010/sep/30/police-surveillance-muslims-no-regard-law

      The “damning report” into the project by Sara Thornton, chief constable of Thames Valley police was once here: http://www.west-midlands.police.uk/latest-news/docs/Champion_Review_FINAL_30_09_10.pdf – but not any more, ….but it is still here:

      • Weasel words from Thornton

        “There is a real opportunity to learn from Project Champion about the damage
        that can be done to police legitimacy when the police are seen to be acting in
        a way which prizes expediency over legitimacy.”

        What does she mean by “expediency”? Attempting to prevent car bombing, suicide attacks, marauding machine gun massacres?

        The Plods and council got themselves into a false position in the most crass way imaginable by trying to pass off valuable anti-terror surveillance as an anti-street crime/burglary initiative. They should have called a spade a spade right from the start and ignored the outraged squawks from the Guardian and “community leaders”. As a result of their craven appeasement the public is less safe – whilst I think Robinson is perhaps drifting into the realm of hyperbole by apparently describing Birmingham as a terrorist epicentre nevertheless it is quite legitimate to describe some areas as terror hotspots. As I said if this were not so why was Project Champion initiated in the first place?

        The subsequent appeasement by WMP is typical and all of a piece really

        They didn’t want suspected groomers identified

        http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/six-suspected-child-sex-groomers-8137724

        They sat on a damning report for 5 years because of the usual “community cohesion” delusions, for which they were of course quite prepared to sacrifice the victims

        http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/586938/West-Midlands-Police-held-back-report-into-Muslim-grooming-gangs-over-racial-tension-fears

        At command level WMP are every bit as despicable as SYP.

        Turning to the wider issues identified in the Telegraph piece the President of the Czech Republic makes some moot points.

        “Zeman continued: “We have no problems with foreigners: there are half a million in the Czech Republic. But this culture [being brought by the refugees] is not compatible with ours.”

        Who is on the right side of history here(taking into account of course the proviso that the winners get to write it)?

        Is it Zeman and Viktor Orban, or is it Angela Merkel? Should the head or the heart rule, especially when the heart is weighed down heavily with historic guilt?

        “A German newspaper reported on Sunday that Germany’s intelligence and security agencies are concerned about migrants that are coming to Germany with radical Islamic and anti-Semitic views.

        The Welt am Sonntag had access to a document that was read by high-level officials in the agencies that said “We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples as well as a different societal and legal understanding.”

  2. This hasn’t just become a problem, having worked around the Uk in the 1990’s, I knew it was a problem back then in London and Slough. In fact when I go to Darnall where many of my family come from, I am appalled what has happened there. I am not against a limited amount of immigration if it benefits the country, but not mass immigration and undermining the cultural and living standards of the majority of the British. We didn’t need to import people into the country back in 1948, when the soldiers came back from war many didn’t have jobs and many ladies would have like to have carried on working. We imported slave Labour to make the industrialists wealthy and Labour have jumped on the back of that because they see them as their voters. Even in the good times of the 60’s we had many unemployed, paying them a little more to do the dirty jobs and reduce this figure would have been preferable. What I do find unwelcome is people who think it is acceptable to over crowd the country, reduce living standards, increase crime, social cohesion and damage our cultural heritage. The refugee crisis hasn’t created this development, it is the straw that broke the Camels back.
