Today’s letters are asking the same question on the one issue our government, our politicians and, as it now would seem, our own representatives in UKIP are somewhat fearful to take on – with one exception. The first letter is from our reader and contributor Alan Piper:
Recently I found myself wondering what %age of the electorate is actually interested in politics? Outside election times I mean. Less than 1 %…? Even if you double that you’re still talking about a very small fraction of thinking voters compared vast tracts of tribal ones.
The latter got excited briefly when the referendum finally reached the starting post in 2016 but remind me, how many years passed with governments promising then reneging on that issue? And reverted to type shortly afterwards.
The reason I raise the question during the leadership campaign is we seem to be in the same place again, but with the issue that is AMW’s specialist subject rather than Nigel’s.
Do we really have to wait another decade or two before anyone takes it on?
And what state will the country be in by then? Borderless? Segregated? Services and British attitudes overwhelmed by sheer weight of foreign invader numbers?
Here on UKIP Daily I’m quite staggered how many voices still imagine that sensible, unprovocative policies and leaders to match are going to make the slightest difference to the UK’s fortunes. UKIP still has in place the organisational nightmare that dragged Farage down and we also still have in place the old main Parties that destroyed us last time out, far more interested in their own agendas, doing their best to drag Brexit down as an aside, and watching our whole way of life go down the tubes with it.
The only “good” news is that most of us will be dead by the time our children come to live with the full ramifications of what our generations achieved. The baby boomers who’ve never actually had to fight for anything.
With that cheerful thought in mind I do wonder what it is that makes our contemporaries so nervous of “blowing the bloody doors off”, politically I mean. Electing AMW. And targeting the one issue that cuts through the rest like a hot knife through butter.
The old saying ‘give an inch, take a mile’ could hardly be more apt. Except the forces of malevolent change are not satisfied with miles now. They’re manipulating the law, have indoctrinated the media, are intimidating growing swathes of the population, happily corrupting elections and will continue unchecked until they are stopped.
It’s going to take an awful lot more than well meant waffle to take this monster on but we sure as hell ain’t going to get anywhere unless the supporters of this Party get behind AMW, her brand of radicalism and everything else she represents.
The electorate didn’t get behind Enoch when it mattered. Are we going to make the same mistake and lack the courage again?
Respectfully, Alan Piper
The second letter, on the same issue, is from our correspondent Cllr Brian Silvester:
Labour MP Sarah Champion wrote an article for the Sun. She wrote,“Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls. There. I said it. Does that make me a racist? Or am I just prepared to call out this horrifying problem for what it is?”
A few days later she was forced to resign as Labour’s Equalities Spokesperson .
She said,”I apologise for the offence caused by the extremely poor choice of words in The Sun article.”
The truth of the matter is that she did not make an extremely poor choice of words. Everything she wrote was absolutely correct. It is an horrifying problem and no more so than for the poor, young, vulnerable white girls who are groomed and then raped and abused by mainly Muslim men.
It has been going on for over 30 years.
In August 2014 the Professor Alexis Jay Report concluded that at least 1,400 children in Rotherham, most of them white girls aged 11–15, had been sexually abused between 1997 and 2013 by predominantly British-Pakistani men. The reason it had not come to light much earlier is that far too many in authority were frightened of being called racist.You would have thought that Labour would have learned from this but they haven’t.Three years after the Jay Report a Labour MP is forced to resign and called racist for saying exactly what was said in 2014.
Shamefully the grooming of young girls by Muslim men is still going on in Rotherham and across this country. All the parties who have been in Government over the last 30 years need to hang their heads in shame.
Sadly.thousands of young,mainly working class, girls,have been groomed and abused and the Government, Police and Social Services have failed to stop it. Indeed it goes on to this day.
The only politician who has spoken out on this issue is Anne Marie Waters, the UKIP Leadership contender, who has called for the law to be unapologetically enforced so these girls can be protected.
It is a national disgrace that those in authority are allowing young girls, who we should be protecting, to be abused in this way and nobody seems capable of stopping it. We need new leaders who will protect the British people and, in particular, these young girls.
Respectfully, Cllr Brian Silvester
Finally, just in, here is the latest statement by David Davis, summarised by our Associate Editor Debbie Le May:
Brexit negotiations – ‘flexibility and imagination’
David Davis has spoken at the start of the third round of the Brexit negotiations between the UK and the EU.
At the start of the meeting he said: “Good afternoon. I’m pleased to be back in Brussels for the third round of negotiations.
“We’ve had a busy few weeks. Since the last round of talks, the UK Government has published a large number of papers covering important issues related to our withdrawal, and our vision for the deep and special partnership we want with the European Union in the future.
“They are products of the hard work and detailed thinking that has been going on behind the scenes, not just in last few weeks but in the last 12 months and should form the basis of what I hope will be a constructive week of talks between the European Commission and the United Kingdom.
“For the United Kingdom, the week ahead is about driving forward the technical discussions across all the issues.
“We want to lock in the points where we agree, unpick the areas where we disagree, and make further progress on the whole range of issues. But in order to do that, we’ll require flexibility and imagination from both sides – something I think the Council has asked for on some subjects.
“Our goal remains the same. We want to agree a deal that works in the best interests of both the European Union and the United Kingdom, and people and businesses right across Europe. And we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get down to work again once more. Thank you.”
