Why is a ‘free press’ so vital to a nation? Here’s a hint: Tommy Robinson spent time in solitary because he dared to report on an issue the Government would rather he shut up about.
Tommy lost 40 lbs in just two months spent in prison for daring to tell this story. The rest of the news outlets were far too candy-assed and politically correct to even acknowledge there was a systemic problem.
News is breaking — gradually, and LONG after the fact — about how the very government officials charged with enforcing the law and keeping the peace were far more concerned about whether or not they appeared to be ‘intolerant’. Because ‘intolerant’ people face unpleasant consequences.
Public humiliation. Lawsuits. Career-ending disgrace.
Meanwhile, the people — CHILDREN! — they routinely failed to protect didn’t get the unpleasant business of being called intolerant.
They got gang-raped by strangers.
Children who tried to go to the police found no justice there. All too often, the police did nothing.
It all comes down to a bureaucratic fear of pissing off the wrong well-connected grievance-monger and their activist lawyers.
Of course, that only emboldens whatever misbehavior they are too gutless to investigate and prosecute.
How big of a problem have they been turning a blind eye to all this time?
SHOCKING police figures released for England and Wales have shown nearly 900 Syrians have been arrested in just one year.
Now critics say they are concerned that the thousands of Syrians entering Britain each year under resettlement schemes are being allowed to enter the country unchecked.
“The UK Government continues to commit a significant amount of international aid to assistance programmes in the regions neighbouring Syria, arguing that this is preferable to encouraging Syrian refugees to make dangerous journeys to Europe.
“The UK has committed over £2.3 billion to helping refugees in Syria and the region, making it the second largest bilateral donor to the Syrian refugee crisis.”
The figure of 900 came from a Freedom of Information request by the Sun on Sunday.
But UKIP MEP Ray Finch has said: “The Government seems have not to have vetted those it has invited into the country.”
That number isn’t ALL ‘sweet migrants’. It doesn’t account for people showing up as ‘refugees’ from countries elsewhere in the Middle East, or North Africa.
The ‘grooming gang’ (a typically polite and English way of child-trafficking soulless bastards) that Tommy was reporting on didn’t have any Syrian connections. Those were, in English speak ‘Asian’. For those of us West of the Atlantic, that term does include people we would call ‘middle-eastern’, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.)
A think tank has claimed that 84 per cent of people convicted of child grooming-gang offences since 2005 were Asian.
In a new study, Quilliam says its researchers discovered differences in the way paedophiles from different backgrounds operated.
It said white offenders often acted alone, while child abusers from Asian backgrounds were more likely to work in so-called grooming gangs.
The organisation, which usually focuses on counter-extremism, said it found 222 of 264, or 84 per cent, of people convicted of specific grooming-gang crimes in the UK since 2005 were Asian.
Is there any problem with their refugee plan, beyond the sheer number of people who never mastered that kindergarten skill of ‘work and play well with others’?
Here’s one. While the UK is setting up a long-term plan to import all of these healthy unmarried men (where ARE all those ‘vulnerable’ women, children, aged and infirm Europe was supposedly giving shelter to?)
Here’s a Reuter’s story that may be relevant to the conversation.
Syria’s foreign minister, Walid al-Moualem, told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday that the country was ready for the voluntary return of refugees who fled during the more than seven-year conflict.
The money they are spending on helping them integrate into the UK might be more helpfully spent in helping them rebuild.
Even the Dalai Lama agrees with that logic.
The left, on the other hand… they’ve got other ideas.
