It's war. Smell the coffee

Phrenology: it could come back.

In what way are the following examples not part of a full-scale cultural war?

Huge increases in immigration over the past decade were a deliberate attempt to engineer a more multicultural Britain, a former Government adviser said yesterday. Andrew Neather, a speechwriter who worked in Downing Street for Tony Blair and in the Home Office for Jack Straw and David Blunkett, said Labour's relaxation of controls was a plan to 'open up the UK to mass migration'.

As well as bringing in hundreds of thousands to plug labour market gaps, there was also a 'driving political purpose' behind immigration policy, he claimed. Ministers hoped to change the country radically and 'rub the Right's nose in diversity'.

But Mr Neather said senior Labour figures were reluctant to discuss the policy, fearing it would alienate its 'core working-class vote'. The published version promoted the labour-market case for immigration but Mr Neather said unpublished versions contained additional reasons.

'Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. 'I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended - even if this wasn't its main purpose - to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date.' The 'deliberate policy', from late 2000 until 'at least February last year', when the new points-based system was introduced, was to open up the UK to mass migration, he said.

Mr Neather defended the policy, saying mass immigration has 'enriched' Britain and made London a more attractive and cosmopolitan place.

Get that?

All this deliberate change was unannounced and indeed disguised as a labour-market adjustment.

Britain’s people were never consulted about any of this and were repeatedly lied to as a matter of official government policy as the Labour Party sought to import anyone, from anywhere, as long as they were different from the native British, with the utterly partisan intention of frustrating their political competitors.

No matter what the cost to (and the possible destruction of), public order and the civil society which had formerly consisted of native people growing up and living together under common rules and accepted, established institutions – Labour had a plan to frustrate the Tories, UKIP, LPUK, and (presumably) the BNP.

Never mind that we were sure to lose our country’s precious habit of abiding by the laws of the land when Britain was purposefully restocked from regions where the only laws are brute force or the absolute and arbitrary rule of the eldest man in a family, or the teachings of a religion that insists on a permanent and merciless war of conquest and oppression by believers against everyone else.

No thought was taken into account of the economic effect that this would have on British people at the lower end of the earnings scale when cheap labour was pumped into the catering and hotel trades, and garages, retailing and residential care industries. No account at all was taken of the likely financial cost to services such as schools, hospitals and General Practitioners, and housing, transportation and public leisure facilities; let alone of how whole neighbourhoods and entire city areas would have their character changed forever by unassimilated and intolerant colonists who would insist that the native British alone should change our ways.

We just don’t matter in our own home, we British, we don’t count for anything, nor does our civilisation – not when the United Left has a plan.

They did it on purpose, with malice aforethought as a convenient by-product of their building-boom, housing boom bubble.

And this from the telegraph on the ideological onslaught against our fee-paying schools.

Last week, Dame Suzi Leather, the head of the Charity Commission, made an unusual concession. She announced that schools which charge fees will have more time to prove that they provide a "public benefit". The commission has already decided that two fee-paying schools should lose their charitable status because they do not do so.

What is the Charity Commission, an unelected, unaccountable quango, doing deciding whether or not fee-paying schools should remain as charities?

For decades, a political argument has raged about whether private schools should be entitled to charitable status and the tax benefits that go with it. They have enjoyed that status since the Reformation. In a democracy, most of us would expect a decision to abolish it to be made democratically.

But in 2006, when Parliament passed the Charities Act, Labour found a way of changing that without any need to go through the tedious process of gaining electoral support for it. Its Charities Act dropped the old assumption that organisations devoted to education, the promotion of religion and the relief of poverty are of "public benefit" and should automatically count as charitable enterprises. Instead, it lets the Charity Commission decide what counts as "public benefit": which means it can decide when an institution can be counted as a charity, and when it will lose that status.

Does anyone imagine that any Islamic ‘charity’ will face such threatened loss of ancient, traditional rights? Still, good idea to finish off the hard core of the last few competent schools.

Finish off this creep’s work.

And via Mark Steyn, this is from a former Tory cabinet minister’s son:

It is certainly true that "fewer people equals a greener planet" is simplistic. In 2050, 95% of the extra population will be poor and the poorer you are, the less carbon you emit. By today's standards, a cull of Australians or Americans would be at least 60 times as productive as one of Bangladeshis.

As a result, NGOs such as Oxfam, for whom I've just written a report on climate change's impact on humans, insist that dealing with consumption in the rich world is much more important than tackling population growth.

Is there any part of this Better that more westerners were dead talk recognizes anything of worth in the culture whose population that Green philosophy is cheerfully condemning as a pestilence?

And the Tories have bought into the whole deal. They either won’t fight – afraid of the ultimate witch-hunt and being accused of raaaacism and so that their alternatives to open-door-breed-the-Tories-out and to hell with the white working class are woefully inadequate.

Here’s their limp-dick answer to Labour’s people-herding social engineering.

Bet that’s got the Somali warlords and their clitoris-cutting crones shaking in their council flats, right? Not much to say about the unintegrated millions already here, though, is there? Locking the barn door after the horse has bolted was made for the Cameroons.

Oh, no, silly me, they’re going to ‘tackle..unacceptable cultural practises.’

How, I wonder: handcuff the brutal old biddies until their knife-hands fall off? How about chartering Ryanair flights and a couple of dozen hefty coppers a week and flying off into the wild blue yonder back to Africa with all the parents and grandparents of any mutilated children who were born here, and adoption for the surviving kids into nice, well-integrated Afro-Caribbean families? Or white ones?

No. Not the clueless, spineless, Office Yes Please But Real Power No Thanks Cameroons.

So they can fanny around with the edges: shave a fraction off a tax rate there. new truncheon for the police there. Maybe stop them persecuting Christians for expressing age-old prejudices here.

But they’ll never rule; never govern in anything but name. Not until they realise that fighting and winning the culture wars is the only way they can translate their policy ideas into anything like good governance.

When large swathes of a country’s cities are populated by people with no affection for, or loyalty to, the host culture; when its public servants actively seek to destroy its ancient institutions (and some of the few schools that deliver anything like a good education); and when many of its natives hate their own kind so much they are happy to use genocide as an example of good planetary management, then the colour of the rosettes and the name of the Prime Minister are pretty much irrelevant – he might as well be a corrupt and effete Bourbon or a late Romanov, because the real power lies elsewhere.

What happens in the streets and the benefits offices; the ‘schools’ and education authorities; the ports and airports; in pubs and homes and council chambers; in the police stations and town halls and quangos matter. Power lies in the minds and imaginations of people: Westminster, not so much. Nobody’s going to work, or fight, or agitate or pay subscriptions to preserve things they either know nothing about, or care little, or have been taught to actively hate. What’s to conserve?

It’ll never change until someone at Tory HQ goes down to their IT people and borrows the lart (Luser Attitude Reconfiguration Tool) – also known as the Clue Bat, off the people who fix the computers and make the email go out. Then it’s upstairs to the suits for some reconstructive phrenology. Don’t hold your breath.

Yet more evidence of trouble coming next year. I have a vid about it tomorrow.

What particualry fucks me off
and he is quoted in the article
. Schools Minister Jim Knight has said: "We are firmly committed to giving local parents the right to vote to abolish selection at existing grammar schools."

Is that the fuck nugget went to a registered charity Public School himself Eltham College. I know because for 5 years I was in the same form as him, however his parents paid fees whilst I was only a 'Free Place' scholarship boy. Maybe he thought that was unfair and it rankled till now.
I know for a fact we read 1984, Animal Farm and Brave New World at the same time. Yet I saw them as a warning and he obviously saw it as a set of instruction manuals.

It's served him well he is now Minister for DWP

Good post again if a tad more pickley than usual.

I've never known where to ask this question and your writing has brought it back to mind.

Has anyone actually worked out if any of the vast amount of money splurged by new labour actually got to anyone who was living within the kingdom prior to 1997?

"Britain’s people were never consulted about any of this..."

But NNW, the British people don't exist, you know that. Are we not a nation of random immigrants, inhabiting a terra nullius free for all the world to settle?

To settle, and to gift us the enriching benefits of vibrant diversity. Were it not for these recent arrivals and their benevolent self-sacrifice in coming to our grey and stagnant islands, we would surely be spending our days gnawing on woolly-mammoth bones and daubing each other with woad, the only relief from our drab lives being riotous bouts of morris dancing fuelled by binge drinking of fermented sabre-tooth tiger piss.

Get with the project, man.

I always assumed that Labours totally open borders policy was intended to dilute our national identy. This would make it easier to integrate us into the EUSSR

Actually, I think this is doing our culture a big favour.(if we survive that is)

Before this all happened, no-one gave a hoot about who and what we are, instead, we gave up almost everything our forebears had worked hard to invent and build. (also compare Romans after the end of the Augustus period, where luxury started to corrupt morals...)

Now our quality of character and mettle is being seriously questioned in a life and death kind of way, and we'll get to see how good our culture actually really is, and how worthy we are of all the gifts that were laid in our cradles for free.

Does our democracy work? Well, it used to, when we upheld it, but we let it slip and it was stolen from us, or shall we say, umm, borrowed permanently because we stopped to care.

Does our culture work? Hmm, not right now, people don't stick together, everyone does their own thing in cutthroat competition with others, it's a free for all. We have no culture to speak of right now!

What Labour did was only possible because we stopped to care about ourselves... in other words, what is occurring now is only the final consequence of a destructive process that began a long time ago.

So, in a crazy way, this fiasco that Labour has visited on Britain is a make or break situation, and perhaps the only real chance we get to develop our culture in a positive way, instead of loafing it to death.

Of all the dying cultures in history, we have the best starting (or, umm.. ending?) position to prove our worth and humanity, now is the time to show ourselves and the world that we're worthy to be who we always thought we are...

Far to many "charities" get most of their money from the public purse.
The amount of Islamic, radical,left wing,and generally rabid groups getting the taxpayers cash is a crime.
Seeing a jihad has been declared by numerous groups against the "west": should we in the "west" consider a Crusade while we still have the means to do it?.
