UKIP – Job done or only just started?

With the resignation of both Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless, many in the media are now saying that UKIP has achieved its goal and it is no longer relevant on the political landscape.

Indeed, the aforementioned Mr Carswell has been gloating on his Twitter feed about a council byelection in his area where the Tories have taken a seat from UKIP , claiming that many Kippers think ‘job done’.

So, what is the reality? With the triggering of Article 50 and the initial founding reason for UKIP (Leaving the EU) looking like a reality, what have UKIP got left to offer?

UKIP Statement on the Berlin atrocity

StatementBickley.jpg

How a lack of European border controls puts us all in peril

It gives no one in UKIP any pleasure whatsoever to state ‘we warned you’. Nigel Farage made it patently clear earlier this year that ISIS would use the refugee crisis and Merkel’s ‘open door invite’ to the troubled parts of the Middle East to smuggle hundreds of jihadists into Europe.

The slaughter of innocents in Paris and Nice wasn’t a coincidence and the latest atrocity in Berlin shows that ISIS is now at war with Europe. The EU’s continued support of Schengen and uncontrolled immigration both within and from outside the EU is (i) costing innocent lives, (ii) leaving hundreds with life-threatening or life-changing injuries and (iii) undermining social cohesion and our Judeo-Christian way of life.

That Anis Amri was able to enter the EU from Tunisia, be jailed in Italy, escape to Germany, kill and maim in Berlin, then flee back to Italy via France where he was shot dead, is testament to the failure of the EU to protect it citizens and control its internal and external borders.

Only one Party has had the political courage to consistently warn of the dangers of uncontrolled immigration and the loss of sovereignty to the EU and that’s UKIP.

UKIP must continue speaking the truth to power and ensure that the UK is fully removed from the ticking time bomb that is the EU. History will judge that at a time of despair and tribulation only UKIP stood tall and was willing to fight for our hard fought for values and right to run our own affairs via a fully Sovereign Parliament.

A reply to Cllr Janet Gardner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

In the Uxbridge Gazette on 23rd November, Cllr Gardner wrote in to the letters page with a piece called ‘Remembrance and our town’s solidarity’. I reproduce the letter below –

I would like to thank PC Emma Reed and her Police colleagues for organising yet again an event in Hayes for the community that live in Hayes and to again prove to the narrow minded critics of Hayes that rather than be a fragmented town as is often claimed, we are in fact ‘in solidarity’.

The event was conducted on the frontage of the Social Centre in Botwell Lane with prayers said by some of the local clergy and a PCSO, the local faith centres were represented by members of their congregations – Christians,Muslims,Buddhists,Sikhs,atheists, all observed the two minute silence.

Over 100 people attended the event, some with their little children,in remembrance of those who have died and are still dying in wars all over the world, and of course with emphasis on those who are affected by wars, many of who live alongside us in the community that is Hayes. Something we all tend to forget.

Children from the local school attended and I am sure some have family members who know first hand the horrendous effect of war.

So again I would like to thank the local Police teams and Emma especially for their ability to make many of the cynics realise that people who live in Hayes are all part of one community and not just many diverse groups living in isolation.

Firstly, can I express my whole hearted agreement that we are all one community – indeed, I have said as much on leaflets we have put out across Hayes. My grandfather served in the Western Desert and Italy during World War 2 and fought alongside Australians, Sikhs and Gurkhas to rid us of the Nazi menace – brave men all.

But a number of things about her letter have caused me to write this reply.

Turkey and the EU – Some worrying allegations

Kurd demo 1With the current Migrant crisis in full flow and many using Turkey as a transit point, the EU have sent cash to the Turkish Government and are looking to fast track the country to full EU membership status. Indeed, Prime Minister David Cameron is on record as stating that he wants Turkey admitted to the EU at the earliest opportunity.

Allegations have surfaced recently that the Turkish Government under Erdogan are trading with ISIS for oil and are using the ongoing action in Syria as an excuse to persecute the Kurds under cover of supposedly attacking the terrorist organisation.

Last Saturday, British Kurds took to the streets outside The Houses of Parliament to highlight the attacks they say are being carried out on their families in Kurdistan by the Turkish Government. I went along to listen to them and hear what they had to say about the situation – below is a transcript of one of the leaflets they handed to me…..

Industrial action stifles the rise of terrorism?

Guest writer John Planter shows the old fashioned English trait of making humour out of a bad situation…..

 

Al Quds 2014 - Ladies with HB flagsMuslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike on Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife. Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.
The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death would be cut next month from 72 to 54. A spokesman said increases in recent years in the number of suicide bombings has resulted in a shortage of virgins in the afterlife.
The suicide bombers’ union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (B.O.O.M.!) responded with a statement saying the move was unacceptable to its members and called for a strike vote. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, “Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don’t ask for much in return but to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth”.

Paris attacks – The solution?

eiffel_tower_france_paris_219697The following is the first post from one of our new 2016 guest writers, Hilltop Watchman.

It is a tongue in cheek look at the problems surrounding Islamist extremism in France with a message for those who would appease terrorism. Any similarity to the situation in Israel and Gaza is purely intentional.

 

Following the operations in Paris by several lone wolf militants with mental problems, and the brutal and disproportionate responses by the French authorities, it is clear that it is French Islamophobia that has resulted in feelings of desperation within the Islamic community

Indeed French society is so apartheid, that Muslims now feel excluded in the No-Go, bainlieu concentration camps that surround Paris, a stain on Gallic society that hearkens back to the collaborative days under Nazi occupation.

It is clear that French colonialist oppression is creating a powder keg environment where young men in particular, who immigrated to France to immerse themselves in the cradle of European culture, see no hope for the future, their hopes and dreams so dashed, that militancy is their only outlet. Their disappointment can only be imagined.

The actions of the racist French Occupying Forces especially operations in the Parisian bainlieus, likewise in the “jungle” refugee camp that is surrounded by French settlements in Calais together with French settled hostility is another factor.

A free country put to the test

As seen in my previous piece, London Mayor and Uxbridge MP Boris Johnson has stated that it would be difficult to ban the flying of the Islamic State flag as this is a ‘free country’. (Despite ignoring the clear breaches of the anti-terror and public order acts that it entails).

St George and Hizb flags

Tomorrow sees the annual Al Quds day parade in London, where the flag of the proscribed terrorist group Hizbollah (Pictured above, which came in to my possession at last year’s event) will be flown on the streets in breach of the same laws and no doubt with no response from the Police.

To see if Boris is prepared to be true to his word, I will be peacefully counter protesting as I do each year – Anti-Semitism, homophobia, misogyny and racism have no place on the streets of our capital city. I will be carrying with me the St George Flag as also displayed in the picture – Let’s see if The Metropolitan Police show me the same consideration that they showed to the IS supporter at Westminster. I somehow doubt it.
