The same fear of being branded “racist” which the intelligent Lord Inderjit Singh (a very different person – keep reading) warned contributed to the paedophile rape gangs being able to operate for not months, not years, but decades, with impunity and apparent immunity.
Tough on mourners of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Confucianists, Shintoists, Jains, Atheists/Agnostics and Sikhs, who will have to wait longer to bury or cremate their loved one. Or don’t the judges realise by pushing some to the top they are pushing others lower? Logic! i.e., the certain result of this judgement is widespread discrimination, unfairness and the resentment that comes with it.
Further, this ruling may well be extended, by those afraid of otherwise being accused of racial or religious discrimination, so as to give certain races or religions extra privileges and legal rights denied to others. Utterly wrong, but it will happen. Who wants the humiliation this coroner has suffered.
All this represents just a taste of what is to come, I fear.
When, in “Animal Farm”, George Orwell talked about some members of a specified mammalian genus being more equal than others of the same genus, he probably referred only to living ones. In the Orwellian Britain of today, Lorded over by out-of-touch judges convinced of their mental and logical superiority, perhaps it also applies to the dead?
While researching Whipple and Lord Singh, Google led me to Lord Singh of Wimbledon, who has no connection whatsoever to any of this.
Inderjit is a Singh (literally, “Lion”) of a very different calibre entirely – read his forthright and robust views, delivered with honesty and integrity here.
Lord Singh (pictured) spoke about his belief that there is “a problem with the Pakistani Muslim community”. He held – exactly as I do – that Sarah Champion MP was disciplined by the Labour Party for “simply speaking the truth” and “daring to speak up for victims”.
There’s more for the respect-worthy Lord Singh:
If we don’t look at what is happening we will never get anywhere. There is a problem with the Pakistani Muslim community. That is not to say that all Muslims are guilty, that is absolutely wrong. It is a small proportion of Muslims that behave in that way. But if anyone says it they are immediately branded a racist.
Within our own Sikh community people play to political correctness or political affiliation before they dare say anything. We are Sikhs; we should be honest and speak for truth and justice. I speak up for all sorts of communities because human rights should be respected. It is obligatory for Sikhs not to put their head[s] in the sand.
Bravo, Lord Inderjit Singh, you are indeed true to your name – a lion. I will respectfully send you my thanks and a prepaid membership form for UKIP, whose membership includes many Sikhs.
But be vigilant and choose your words carefully, Lord Singh. I have a feeling the other Lord Singh might disapprove. “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act” – David Hoffman, but often attributed to George Orwell who Hoffman thought he was quoting.
Lord Justice Rabinder Singh, I will stop short of holding you in c, but I will try to post you a book on Inductive Logic, in which subject I have assessed, on the evidence available, you are deficient. Share it with Mrs Justice Whipple, if you see fit.
What new absurdity can be expected? Citing, in obiter in a ruling, that a person the Government was seeking, on excellent grounds, to be deported had got a cat, and for various reasons (therefore) shouldn’t be chucked out? Oops. Someone else got there first – it happened.
Attempts by Al-Beeb to discredit that story serve to show it is true. There was no suggestion that Puss was the principal reason the illegal migrant was allowed to stay; but the very mention of it in the ruling illustrates how crazy things were back in 2009.
Nine years on, it’s far worse.
Allowing Sikh motorcyclists not to wear helmets if they had a turban is not at all the same thing – the turban provided somewhat similar protection, and most importantly no one else was hurt or prejudiced.
Today’s High Court judgement, on the contrary, obviously does hurt and prejudice others. It is ridiculous and deeply offensive, an affront to common sense and basic human decency. It is making Britain a laughing-stock already – in India too.
It must be appealed and it must be struck down. Else, an important line in the sand will have been crossed, from which recovery is impossible.
