True British Values

"The BNP is the complete opposite of the true essence of Britishness.

Our community has four years to think about what has happened, in the recent local elections, and I look forward to the first opportunity when we all can soundly and robustly vote out the fascist BNP and restore true British values to Hainault."

With these stirring words the Labour Party's Mark Santos wrappeth himself in the Union Flag.

Mr Santos, as director of the taxpayer-funded London East Aids Network, exemplifies the good old fashioned British values so dear to the hearts of those who fought against Hitler.

Such as

- the advocacy role of our African Services,
ensuring that people can overcome cultural
and linguistic barriers
- a pilot of workshops for gay men dealing
with issues of long-term diagnosis and mental
- a pilot of courses targeted at recently diagnosed
African clients under the title
‘Maisha Maizuli’ and held in English and
- having an Artist-in-Residence for a year,
allowing people to explore living with the
Virus in an holistic and creative way
- our new gay men’s website promoting
access to relevant services and information

It's enough to make you sigh for the days when Labour Party people were happy to be open about hating Britain. Only Ken Livingstone and the SNP still carry the torch.

UPDATE - the ordinary people of Redbridge are upset too.

"This is a borough that has provided a haven for the survivors of the holocaust and also for those fleeing persecution, a tradition of which it could be proud."

says Diana Neslen.

Indeed, a haven for the survivors of the holocaust is something to be proud of - like the State of Israel. Er ... is that the Diana Neslen who wants the EU to continue funding the Hamas Government ? Who signs petitions for the IRA front group Relatives For Justice ? Any relation to former Al-Jazeera correspondent Arthur Neslen, I wonder ?

Me no understand. The BNP, who Ms Neslen thinks should be excised 'like a cancer', have some decidedly dodgy views on Red Sea pedestrians, and think illegal immigrants should be sent home - the latter a policy which is, in form if not in fact, shared by Her Majesty's Government.

Hamas, who Ms Neslen thinks should get EU taxpayers money, believe Jews to be sons of pigs and monkeys, that the very trees will call for their deaths, and have a policy of slaughtering those they believe to be illegal immigrants - men, women and children. The category of 'illegal immigrant' consists of every Jew in the State of Israel.

Ordinary legal caseworker Krista Everington was shocked and saddened too.

"I hope that Redbridge Council will ensure that the views of the single, and therefore thankfully quite powerless BNP councillor, are challenged at every point"

"Before joining RNID, Krista worked in welfare rights advice and advocacy with a range of national organisations for the past six years."

Good to see the ordinary folk are finding their voices.

Patriotism, the last refuge of the scoundrel

I don't actually see anything wrong with what Mr Santos does (except that I'm paying for it).

But I'm not sure his activities speak to 'the plain dutiful heart of England'.

If Scotland were independant I often wonder how long it would take these guys to transfer their hatred of Britain to a more local self-hatred.

Erm, if 'we all' didn't vote out the BNP the first time round, how does he think it might happen next time round....?

“Patriotism, the last refuge of the scoundrel”

Meaning that when a scoundrel has attempted refuge elsewhere, he finally shelters behind (false) patriotism. The quote has often been used by unpatriotic scoundrels to excuse themselves, but Dr Johnson was himself both a patriot and a Tory and it reads in full:

“Patriotism having become one of our topicks, Johnson suddenly uttered, in a strong determined tone, an apophthegm, at which many will start: “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.” But let it be considered that he did not mean a real and generous love of our country, but that pretended patriotism which so many, in all ages and countries, have made a cloak of self-interest.”

A) Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
B) Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
C) Heh.

LT - those links to Diana n Krista - they both lead to pages full of technogeek gobbledegook intended to dismay ordinary folk.

I can do little about that, though you can add a popup blocker to your browser.

The technogeek stuff is an invitation to install macromedis flash player, a utility which enables companies to annoy you with irritating graphics and popup boxes. If you just hit the X box at top right they give up after two goes. Annoying but that's what these local rag sites (who are all owned by the same 2 or 3 national groups) do.

It were nowt to do with Flash and they werent pop-ups, it was some part of the Ilford Recorder site. Stack requests, process calls, exceptions blah blah.

Anyhow its OK now.
