I’ve been saying Britain is dead for years now. The corpse is still twitching, but barely.
Read Andrew Stuttaford’s post on the Islamic march through England’s institutions. Multiculturalism, as it does everywhere, kills people and countries.
Of course, England is not alone in its doom.
And, if you have the stomach for looking at a field littered with burnt corpses, you can always take a gander at this monument to the Religion of Peace.
Yet another reason why I have no desire to even visit England: It is clearly now a police state, where it’s illegal to even photograph the coppers.
Waylett and his long-term friend John Innis, 20, were stopped under the Terrorism Act in Lodge Road, St John’s Wood, west London, after the actor took a photograph of a police patrol as they drove past.
When that kind of behavior is illegal, there are no meaningful freedoms left.
If this isn’t a marker of the complete, abject capitulation of a once-great nation I don’t know what is.
Well, that went well.
The irony of Britain’s channel 4 giving Ahmadinejad the pulpit in the name of free speech is that as he was speaking, Iranian authorities raided and closed down the BBC’s Tehran offices and, separately, in the spirit of goodwill to man, ordered Christmas trees banned from Iranian kindergartens.
This sort of nonsense has been going on for years in Britain. But here’s yet another example of the police siding with the hoodlums instead of the victims.
For more than two years, Sydney Davis’s house has been under siege from youths throwing stones.
After two hours of bombardment in the latest attack and no sign of the police, the 65-year-old retired builder decided enough was enough.
As a particularly large missile landed in his kitchen, he grabbed a plank of wood from the garden and ran towards the gang to scare them away.
The police arrived just in time – to arrest Mr Davis for possession of an offensive weapon.
The stone-throwers are referred to as just “youths”. Makes me suspicious. What sort of youths are known to attack people in Wiltshire? (Three guesses.)
Jonah Goldberg on that whirring sound.
The English lost their freedom so long ago they don’t even know it’s gone. A once-great country has degenerated into a despicable nanny state.
The great-grandmother, who fled to Britain from East Germany following the Second World War, said youths in her neighbourhood had been making her life a misery.
She told the Daily Mail: “What justice is there? There are a group of youths who throw gravel at my window and use foul language against me.
“I saw one of them throw the stones against my window from my bedroom. I went out and found him hiding behind a wall. I poked my finger out at him and told him what I thought of him.
“Then the police arrested me – I thought ‘What a joke. What is going on?’.”
I would wish for those morons at the CPS to lose their jobs, but I fear they’d just move here and get jobs with the TSA.
I thought Britain would be killed by its multiculturalism and long-term trampling on that most basic of all human rights: self defense. I’ve chronicled here how it’s essentially lost the war with radical Islam. But the coups de grâce may hit its banks.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that I’ve been saying for years that Great Britain is dead.
The British lost their freedom decades ago but didn’t notice. Hint: If you can’t buy a gun and use it legally for self defense, you have no liberty in any meaningful sense of the word. Add in so-called “multiculturalism“, and you have the death of a civilization.
Well, none other than Peter Hitchens says that it’s now official. The “Left-wingers at last meet the filthy thing they have created.”
They have all learned what most British politicians somehow cannot grasp – that the more encounters you have with our justice system, the less you fear it. A few ‘exemplary’ sentences – none of which will be served in full, or anything near it – will only help to spread the word that arson, robbery, violence, spite and selfishness are not punished here any more. Indeed these are the things we are now famous for around a world that once respected us.
And that is why we have many more nasty surprises waiting for us, here in The Country Formerly Known as Great Britain.
