Four major catastrophes in less than three months. One writes of course over the tragedies in London and Manchester. They have one commonality – mass immigration. Migrants have been victims and perpetrators of catastrophe. The smouldering Grenfell Tower is a charred edifice that perfectly suits the state of modern Britain. Indeed it is like an architectural modern ‘Dorian Gray’, a picture that aged and decayed while its owner failed to age. Oscar Wilde had great insight into the depths of the human soul.
Look at the released pictures inside the gutted ruin. How could anybody survive this? I am hardly the ‘PC’ type but tragedy is no place for it anyway. Human is human. Only a psychopath could fail to be moved to a range of emotions from pity to anger at this awful event. One is not known for doing ‘feely-touchy’ either as a kind of ‘virtue signaller’. No, I’m into proper compassion and cold reality.
How sick the political situation in Britain is means that the writer must scribble under a sobriquet, such is the grip of political correctness on society today. Say the wrong thing in an endless number of cases and the mobs of Internet piranha will enter into a feeding frenzy, so condemning the author to ‘desocialisation’– loss of work and friends at the very least, but possibly a police arrest at worst such is the iron grip of subjectively interpreted ‘hate crime’ legislation. True law, like truth itself, was objective and recognised by all normal people until a few decades ago….
Grenfell is truth – a horrid fact but nevertheless it ‘tells it as it is’. Politicians and their coteries do not, nor do modern thought-heresy-hunting police who bear increasing comparison with the former notorious ‘Stasi’ of the GDR. I watched a video on ‘Youtube’ where an overweight member of Manchester’s finest, attired in ubiquitous fluorescent yellow jacket seen on all of today’s police, assault a young gay man simply talking to a journalist while protesting about the growing influence of sharia-style laws.
Since when has it been the business of the police’s to decide who gets to talk to the media? Yet another example of what is wrong with a country once renowned for its freedom of speech and good manners. Oafs and boors seem in the ascendant today.
I admire the bravery of the emergency services but that does not excuse the increasingly thuggish behaviour of certain officials who seem to have forgotten they serve the public, not we them. I had a major row with one such individual in the Northamptonshire constabulary some years ago. It involved the question of Parliamentary privilege and an MP’s Private Member’s Bill to ban certain body and face coverings in these times. I spoke to the MP by telephone to obtain the facts, then contacted the investigating officer who denied that Parliamentary privilege was still existent, as it was now ‘changed times’. He even threatened me with arrest for ‘harassment’.
Two days later the Speaker of the House of Commons confirmed that Parliamentary privilege was still valid in the case of a Labour MP or two who had been light fingered in matters of certain expenses. I called the sergeant involved to obtain his response. He refused to receive the call.
A few days later the Metropolitan Police raided Parliament itself searching for ‘files’ as evidence of leaked information. That was another case but shows how we have lost our accepted social constructs so well reflected in the phrase ‘The public are the police and the police are the public’. Once we stray into a situation where police can act against their own sovereign we stray into very dangerous waters.
I think Grenfell is part of that same problem. It should not matter one iota whether a victim is black, white or brown in skin shade or of what religious fraternity they stem from. The law and its social application must be applied without favour or partiality. Once it falls below this high standard it becomes tyranny.
I read some of the comments on the revolting Facebook mentioning the obvious foreign religious affiliations and ethnicity of the victims of Grenfell. Britain First was reported to have been in the area by the Independent newspaper, that like the Guardian can be somewhat creative in its reportage, the Daily Mail too is also ‘creative’ with facts. To use a modern fashionable term-‘Fake news’ is not the sole proclivity of ‘Leftist’ journals. As we know pulp fiction is across the board these days. Papers resemble increasingly Penny Dreadfuls of earlier times.
The death toll of the tragedy is going to be in the hundreds. Young mites were thrown from high floors. The MSM will not reveal the full horror of the numbers involved. Just as they refuse to release other facts that those that committed the murders on London Bridge and Manchester, they perhaps fear the essential factor common to all in these tragedies. That common factor is migration.
Mass migration has been an untold catastrophe not only in UK but across Europe. However, such is the cloying fear and paranoia of ‘thought heresy’, people have died and the culprits allowed to proceed along their corrupt routes.
How many more must die to suit the modern purveyors of ‘fake news’ and heresy hunting ‘witch-finder’ police? Migrants have been the major victims of these dreadful occurrences but that should not be construed as that I favour migrants but simply a fact. Impartiality is proper application of law, not political correctitude and sick agendas.
Something stinks to Heaven over these tragic events. I sniff corruption in high places and a collapse in what was once simple human compassion for all colours and creeds. All we have today is robots in uniform or Vogue fashion that seem oblivious to how ordinary folk have to suffer outside their rarefied privileged existences.
Once children die that situation must end. Our common humanity demands nothing less. Migration and its tragic consequences must be seen and understood and those responsible in the political class for this mess exposed for what they are – crooks and incompetents and maybe worse.
