I have no problem with people of any race, creed, colour or belief system, as long as their impact in the world and especially the UK, is benign. I welcome the multifarious multiethnic mix of peoples who are now part of British society, we wouldn’t be what we are today without them.
I don’t think being concerned about backward misogynistic religions or cultures diluting, negatively impacting and changing our British culture is racist in any way.
I do think multiculturalism is a failed left wing project and it is time to examine it’s tenants and societal impact.
In particular the impact of “fundamental ” islamic teaching and influence in UK schools is of very great concern, as is the “islamification” of areas like Luton and Tower Hamlets.
We need to defend, emphasise and encourage British values and culture while embracing ethnicity and all it has to offer our society, culture and gene pool.
I abhor the introduction of Sharia law, arranged marriages, “honour” violence (what a stupid way to describe GBH and murder), FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and muslim focused schools (I would prefer religion was kept out of school, politics and football).
When muslims and others come to live in Britain they should embrace and accept its traditional mores and culture, not seek to change or dilute it. They should leave the UK if our culture offends them, not seek to change it radically. if our laws are not to their liking, if they can’t appreciate free speech, equal status for women, LGBTQ, free religious choice (or the choice not to believe) offend them, begone.
I accept there are many other evil influences and problems in this country, but fundamental or extreme islam is one of our most serious and pressing issues. People of many other faiths and ethnicities have and continue to integrate extremely well into Britain, why not the supporters of Islam?
Below you will find my posts, occasional guest posts and other links both home and abroad.
Update July 2017. Since writing this post we have increasing home grown Islamist violence resulting in the horrific deaths of children in Manchester – it’s time to root out this cancer that is destroying our way of life.
Update August 2017. Following the continuing revelations of muslim grooming gangs and many many convictions, it is evident the left and our government are embarrassed and being overly sensitive to the PC brigade. The resignation of Sarah Champion this month is indicative of the problem we face, we need our politicians and institutions to grasp this problem by the neck and deal with it. Im sure the bulk of UK law abiding muslims are also concerned at the festering problem this lack of honesty is causing.
Of the 256 grooming gang convictions from 1997 (excluding the latest Newcastle ones, the bulk of the men convicted have an average age of 29.5 ranging from 16 to 63, they appear to be predominately muslim.
Add these 17 (and one sick woman) and we now have 274 convictions.
