Yesterday in Luton the East Anglian regiment marched through the town on it’s return from active service in Iraq. They were met by Muslim protesters waving banners saying ‘Anglian Regiment Go to Hell’ and shouts of “Anglian Soldiers: Butchers of Basra” and “Anglian Soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists”. Now Freethinkeruk is no supporter of the Iraq invasion nor our involvement in Afghanistan but I support our military personnel as individuals who are merely pawns in this political game.
A friend of mine has recently suffered the loss of her 40 year old son who lived in Leicester. She has to wait for three weeks before the cremation can take place. This is an awfully long time for anyone to wait to begin the process of closure. So why is it such a long wait? The undertaker explained that Muslims get priority as their religion requires quick burial or cremation because of the health risks in the heat of the sun. What sun here in late winter in the UK? Don’t we also have fridges for any delay? Why should Muslims get priority in this sad matter or any other?
Anyone who knows me would confirm that I am neither a racist nor a bigot but in these ridiculous politically correct times I run the risk of being called or thought as such simply for speaking my mind and so beit. We, or rather successive governments, are giving away our nation. We changed our anti cruelty to animals laws to allow Halal meat, we have allowed mass immigration to swamp many of our ancient towns and cities, we spend a fortune on schemes to supposedly integrate Asians in the main into our society.
It is time to say enough is enough. Further mass immigration halted, no more concessions to culture or religions. A statement must be made clear that this is our country and you are welcome provided that you fit in with us and if you don’t wish to do so then don’t come here.
