The terrorist attack at London Bridge on Saturday has overshadowed the last days of this election campaign. There are issues which will not go away just because we’re going to the polls today. Regardless of the result, and regardless of the pious words of our political leaders – too little, too late, too transparent in their aim to garner votes – islam is one of them. The first letter by our reader Graham Wood is an example:
Responding to Islam: In the light of the recent spate of Islamist violence and killings there is now an urgent need for a government change of policy from containing Islamist terrorists to confronting all Moslem communities in the UK with an ultimatum.
The Moslem faith and the killers who act in its name are entirely incompatible with our democracy, way of life, culture, and laws. Moslem leaders therefore must be confronted because the lives of ordinary people are far more important than the sensitivities of Islam appeasers and more important than the freedom of Islamic killers to wreak murder and mayhem.
What practical steps should be taken? I believe the following will be effective in significantly reducing, or removing the jihadist threat permanently.
- Government legislation must require all Muslim Imams in UK mosques/teaching centres to personally renounce entirely all injunctions in the Koran to exercise Jihad in any shape or form, and to forbid teaching others the same who come under their care and influence. Failure to comply should mean immediate deportation back to their country of origin.
- Every single act of Islamic terrorism, of violence or death on our streets should carry a penalty for the whole Islamic community which must take ownership or responsibility for the men of murder and violence within their midst whose existence and often known jihadist sympathies are tolerated.
Each act therefore should automatically result in government closing down a number of mosques in the UK with immediate effect without right of appeal.
This would result in the so called “moderate” Moslems who either condone or support jihadists in their communities to expose them and weed them out on pain of potentially losing their mosque. (Mosques are much more than places of worship, but centres of indoctrination of young people, children, and especially many unemployed, gullible, Muslim young men.) Thus these mosques become dangerous intellectual cesspools of Islam think. Only the most devout believers work their way into leadership positions, and these people are the most likely to believe Islamic calls to violence. The inability to rationalise anything about Islam is at its height inside the mosques.
- An incoming government must ban all new mosque building in the UK.
In my view these three specific steps are essential prerequisites to re-establishing our rule of law and a return of peace on our streets.
Respectfully, Graham Wood
The second letter comes from our reader Septimus Octavius, making a point about tactical voting:
Maintenance of the aim! Due to the quirks of the electoral system, it is entirely possible that UKIP could win one or two seats this time round! However, in the other 300 odd seats where UKIP is fielding a candidate, sadly there is a 0% chance of that candidate winning, and it is in those seats where tactical voting is essential. The object of this exercise is to ensure that Brexit occurs, and I would contend that where a Conservative can win, all should be done to assist in that process.
Further, I would advocate that one should vote Labour, if necessary, where there is any possibility whatsoever of a LibDem winning the seat!
Brexit is the be all and end all of the 2017 General Election; the Tories are the party which will win, and the more seats they secure for this purpose the better. We should hope that the LibDems are wholly obliterated in this exercise – but that happy prospect is a remote one. Labour should be assisted in its suicide. There will then be all to play for in 2022 for a genuinely rebranded UKIP.
Remember in 1974, when Enoch Powell advised the country to vote Labour, as being the only party which might remove the UK from the monster that is now the EU? The time has come for all good souls so to come to the aid of the hated Tories!
In this regard, at least, let us revive the Spirit of Enoch!
Respectfully, Septimus Octavius
