Chinese Domination, Energy Price Rises & Teachers’ Strikes

October 17, 2013 at 5:59 pm

I’m no customer of British Gas, but if I were I’d be feeling all warm and fuzzy inside tonight. You see, even though they may have increased their dual fuel bills by a whopping 9.2% just in time for another harsh British Winter, at a time where families are struggling to ‘put food on the table’, they showed that there is a human element behind its vast corporate money-printing machine. Yes, here’s what they had to say about their price rises:

“We understand the frustration of prices rising faster than inflation.”

Do you? Do you really? Do you understand how difficult it will be for the average family to find an extra £123 per year in order to cook and store  food, clean clothes, bathe and turn on the lights? Do you understand that families already below the ‘breadline’ simply will not be able to find that extra money and will resort to Payday lenders or simply just not eat? Do you understand that the average worker receives a below inflation pay rise, so an above inflation pay rise is doubly crippling? Do you understand that this will result in unnecessary deaths again this winter?

The answer is a sad and resounding yes. Of course they understand. They know the impacts of their price rises, yet they don’t care. And that’s the problem, it’s not that these people fail to understand, it’s that they fail to give a shit. They know that people will go without food in order to fund their energy needs. They know it. David Cameron’s reaction was to wave the white flag, encouraging ‘consumers’ to go out and shop for a better deal, knowing full well that SSE had already announced price rises and that the rest of the cartel will follow suit within weeks, if not days.

£123, the average extra cost to British Gas customers, over the course of a year may not sound a lot but if you’re already scraping the bottom of the barrel, it makes the bottom of that barrel seem a heck of a lot further away. But at least they ‘understand’. So British Gas customers can sleep well, warm and fuzzy tonight. But from the 23rd November, their sleep may be a little less warm.

And on the subject of the Politics of Energy, George Osborne announced today that China will be funding a new wave of Nuclear Power Stations in Britain. Apart from the fact it’s Nuclear, this may sound like fantastic news. Foreign rich people investing in Great Britain can never be a bad thing, right? Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. We already have quite the cartel in the energy market, wildly profiteering at the expense of those less well off, but now China will be pouring it’s money, and political muscle, into this already poisonous mix.

Sure, there may be jobs created and a little bit extra wealth created and maybe a boost to ‘wavering’ energy suppliers (I don’t buy this for a millisecond), but look at the cost. We’ll have potentially dangerous, unsafe, ‘terror target’ Nuclear reactors that nobody knows how to dispose of after use combined with a foreign investor looking to make profit from their venture. Today’s announcement means that the future for the energy sector is bright and lined with money, and all this will be at our expense. Also, I find it outrageously hypocritical and actually disgusting that Osborne practically whored out Britain to China, relaxing visa controls at a time where his party is clamouring for immigration and border controls to be tightened. Makes sense.

A final point then, on strike action. The recent teacher’s strike drew a flurry of frankly pathetic comments from those ‘affected’ by it. The public are really buying into this Tory bullshit whereby any strike action is disappointing and wrong. I don’t know the facts behind the strike at all, and am not terribly interested either but what I do know is that nobody wants to strike. A strike is the last resort for employees against an employer that is being unreasonable and refuses to enter serious negotiations. This isn’t the 70s where unions would strike because the tea was tepid.

Perhaps those complaining about the strikes would do well to learn to live a little. Not everything goes to plan, and when something unexpected happens, react spontaneously and enjoy it. Surely a day away from the mundane reality of the daily grind is a good thing? And consider your fellow human, who has made the decision to strike as a last resort against an unreasonable employer.

Far-Right Extremist Laments Far-Right Extremist Group Being Too Far Right & Extreme

October 8, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Tommy Robinson today announced that he’s quitting the English Defence League as he wants to “Counter Islamist Ideology” though “Not with violence but with better, democratic ideas.”

Describing Tommy as an enigma is probably being a little generous. Usually enigmatic people are quite deliberately difficult to fathom but Tommy seems to be either accidentally difficult or just internally conflicted. Either way he’s led the increasingly violent, increasingly stupid and increasingly racist EDL for four years now. He’s been given a fair bit more air-time over that period than the genuinely baffling Nick Griffin, and four years later I still can’t quite figure out what his point actually is. Or was.

I do remember watching a documentary about him and Saiful Islam in Luton, and I remember thinking at the time that Tommy probably isn’t as racist, nasty or as anti-Islam as he likes to make out. That in fact it looks as though he and Saiful were the equally dominant and equally opposing forces at the same secondary school and that the two of them don’t genuinely believe what they’re saying. It almost looked like the EDL and Saiful’s little gang of backward followers was just a wild escalation to this playground duel that may well have began with one looking at the other’s girlfriend the wrong way.

He had a bit of a strange interaction with an Asian security guard during that programme, where he called him a ‘Smelly paki’ and told him to ‘go home’. The guard didn’t bite and Tommy just said ‘Nah, I’m only kidding mate, you’re all right.’ And weirdly enough, I saw a small little boy with a desire to be liked, or to be well known or famous. And perhaps that’s why he started the EDL. Maybe he was talking to his mate Kev (Carroll, his deputy leader of the EDL who also quit), talking about fame and they both reached the conclusion that he wasn’t particularly good at anything apart from his innate  ability to start  fights in empty rooms and shout a lot. And thus, the EDL was born.

With every passing pub-crawl or – to use EDL terminology – march, the group seemed to grow in violence and genuine confusion. It would have been fantastic if the various police forces that have had to deal with these drunken farces had kept some stats, as I’m sure they probably hurt more of their own than anyone else. As well as increasing in violence, Tommy himself ventured further away from criticising ‘Political Islam’ as he calls it (not sure what that actually is) and more towards criticising everyday Muslims. I could list a few of his more famous insults aimed in the general direction of Muslims, not extremists, but it’d be too easy.

My thoughts on the move he’s made today aren’t too deep, they’re pretty straightforward actually. His quitting of the leadership of the EDL does not mean that overnight he becomes less violent, more inclusive of Muslims or less Islamophobic. Tomorrow he will wake up the same person with the same ideas floating around in his head. But on the other hand I don’t think we should assume that he’ll never change or that he doesn’t want to.

I still think a lot of the things he’s done and said in the past are deplorable, despicable and in cases outright disgusting, but it isn’t for me or anyone else to judge him as a write-off or a lost cause. At this moment in time it’s probably safe to assume that Tommy probably harbours a strong disliking for Islam and Muslims, and by not at least giving him a chance to repent Muslims will only be proving him right. Of course we don’t need to prove anything to him at all, but if we were take a look at our own Prophet (Salallahu Alayhi Wasalaam) and the trials he faced in his lifetime, we will see for ourselves that he forgave much worse people who committed much more oppressive, much more disgusting acts than Tommy Robinson ever has.

So while it may look slightly comical that a Far-right extremist has left the far-right extremist group that he himself started up for being too far right and too extreme, we should at least give the man a chance to redeem himself. He might just prove himself to be a good guy after all. On the other hand he might not, but we will be much better off as Muslims if we at least give him that chance.

What Are Whites Doing to Combat White Crime?

October 6, 2013 at 6:14 pm

Wow, some things never change. It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I was writing this. And since then not really a lot’s changed, today the BBC’s Sunday Morning Live show asked the question that seems to be in vogue at the moment: ‘Do Muslims do enough to combat extremism?‘ It’s a ludicrous and infuriating question that actually hints at the possibility that Muslims at worst agree with extremist viewpoints or at best tolerate them. I won’t go over old ground too much, but there isn’t a great deal we can do about it. These extremist types are incredibly aware of the unpopularity and sensitivity of their own viewpoints, so generally only share their thoughts with like-minded individuals.

Also I noticed via this tweet from Mohammad Ansar, a story on the Quilliam Foundation:

 

The article talks about a forthcoming report from the Quilliam Foundation (set up by two ex-extremists interestingly enough) that pretty much decries all ‘mainstream’ Muslim organisations as Extremist apologists. It seems clear that Quilliam is smearing other organisations in an attempt to retain its Government funding, but this little episode does raise a difficult question for News and Television editors: ‘Which Muslims should we invite comment from?’

Unfortunately, it seems the balance at the moment is tipped in favour of those Muslims who think Islam and Muslims should drastically change to meet the demands of the West. Muslims who think that Islam and the West don’t really need wholesale changes to co-exist are largely ignored, how many can you name? On the whole is Islam is poorly represented in the mainstream press, possibly because the opinions of ex-Muslims, ‘Secular’ Muslims or ‘Moderate’ Muslims sell more copy as they are likely to pander to white audiences. I don’t often see ‘Muslim’ Muslims on TV, you know the ordinary Muslim who is interested in clean living, clean earning, worship, family and equality for all. If you do see ‘Muslim’ Muslims on TV, I tend to find it’s either teenagers who, like any teen, are a bit under-developed with their ideas or nervous to be on TV, or it’s nice people like Myriam Francois-Cerrah who seems to get rapturous applause on their rare appearances.

Of course I think representation of Muslims and Islam on the tellybox is more than just a little unfair but that’s nothing new and is highly unlikely to change any time soon. Islamophobia does play a big part in this, but I think we as Muslims must also accept that another aspect of this is the general negativity of Western Media. Negativity sells copy, media outlets are in fierce competition in an increasingly shrinking marketplace so as unfortunate and unfair as it is, Muslims just aren’t going to get much good press (unless we run 5,000m faster than anyone else). That doesn’t mean to say that we should lie down and accept it, we just need to understand that isn’t necessarily all about hatred of Islam.

That hatred does exist though, and it doesn’t always manifest itself in an obvious or direct manner. We only have to look at how often the ‘Do Muslims do enough to…’ question pops up in comparison to the ‘Do Whites do enough to…’. I have never seen any news outlet ever question the efforts of white people, despite the fact that as of June 2013 73.8% of prisoners are white. So 73.8% of all convicted prisoners currently serving are white. That kind of statistic really does beg the question:

What are White People doing to combat this?”

The answer of course is nothing in particular, but why is this question never asked? I’m white, so according to the logic of the BBC and other mainstream outlets, should I be out on the streets campaigning against White Crime? Maybe I could have a little niche of my own and go out campaigning against White Muslim crime, maybe I should cast a judging eye over every white person I see and if they look like they might commit a crime, ask them how they are? After all, it’s my duty as a white person to help combat the ever-increasing scourge of British society: White Crime.

Or maybe it’s my duty as a white person to pressurise minority groups into action over their criminals instead? After all, I pay my taxes and as a result am an asset to society. They don’t and they aren’t. Right?

Red Ed: The Secret Russian Spy

October 1, 2013 at 6:47 pm

Like you, I read the Daily Mail’s wonderfully unbiased and thoroughly researched report in to Ed Miliband’s father. It’s only right that the British people are made aware that the father of the leader of the opposition wrote of his contempt and rage for Britain at the age of just seventeen. Us decent British folk must not be fooled in to voting for a man associated with communism in any way, shape or form. Britain can do better than this, to paraphrase Ed himself.

But I fear that our beloved Daily Mail has let itself down again no doubt because, just like the BBC, it’s being infected by a violently aggressive band of left-wing fanatics. I’m fed up of these left-wing lunatics telling me that I can’t abuse Blacks, Irish or Gays in the street. What kind of Britain do we live in where a good, honest, hard-working man can’t lord it over these ethnics that invade our country looking for benefits and free healthcare? I look at the state of modern Britain, I see the Union Jack flying proudly and I weep for it. I weep for our proud flag at how pitiful we’ve become. I’m sick of hearing about ‘Human Rights’. How we need to go out of our way to accommodate cripples, how we have to grant asylum to these foreigners who lie about how their own government wants to kill them. What we need to do is round them up and slaughter them.

But I digress. What I really wanted to tell you is that I discovered evidence on my favourite online forum ‘White Britannia’, that the leader of the opposition is actually a Russian spy working that crazy vodka-drinking, tiger-hunting Putin. Yes, apparently Ed’s cousin 201 times removed, Ivan, was born in Leningrad. While young Ed was at university smoking weed and protesting against capitalism like all these stupid lefties do, he was writing to Ivan telling him how horrid Britain is and how he’d like to fulfil his father’s dream of destroying Britain. Ivan told Ed that he was fairly high up in the KGB and that he’d speak to his superiors.

Ed mysteriously booked a flight to Cuba where he met Fidel Castro’s son to begin talks with Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler’s secret love-child with the aim of concocting a plan to destroy the western world as we know it. The plan was for Ed to ingratiate himself with the Trade Unions and work his way up through the ranks of the notoriously Commie-friendly and anti-human Labour Party as a sleeper agent. The key sign for Ed to put the plan into motion was to be a large bombing on US soil. He would then begin to swiftly progress up through the ranks, recruiting other communist sympathisers along the way, and eventually take over as leader of the Labour Party.

Once there, his mission is to murder the entire Conservative Party, feed their remains to his bloodthirsty commie pals and defeat Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democrats in the election. Once in power, Ed will demolish the symbolic centres of capitalism in London with help from Osama bin Laden (who has lived in Ed’s basement since 9/11) and enforce a tyrannical regime of communism, marxism and equality. In this twisted new world, Irish, Blacks, Gays and even women will all have equal rights. Foreign people will migrate from all over the globe and enslave the white man, we’ll become the minority in our own country and Russian and Mandarin will become our official languages.

To add insult to injury, Ed will then announce that he has converted to Islam and enforce Sharia law onto the native British people. This will be the springboard for Islamic Global Domination and Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, Iran and Iraq will join forces to wipe poor defenceless Israel off the map, giving the land to the invented peoples of Palestine. Once Israel is obliterated, they will focus their attention on the USA, and force her into their submission. They will force all of the American people to convert to Islam and free all the crooked Black prisoners from death row.

And if you think that’s all bad, I haven’t even mentioned that they’ll cancel Wimbledon; ban beer, bacon and Christmas.
