The Topic That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Indebted to David Phipps who posted this article on the Independence Home Website on 16th June. I especially like the record of the number of downloads of various documents from the Harringay Website! In fact I liked it so much I've put it in bold

Anyway read on................

It can, it is felt, be said that those interested in politics ‘per se’ are aware of the ‘fake-charity’ syndrome, whereby bodies, with charitable status, are set up to ‘guide’ the implementation of government policy and, in so doing, receive the bulk of their income from government departments.

The latest example of this is The Family & Parenting Institute who received £15.77million from the government, out of a total income of £17.77million. There is also a website available on which it is possible to view these ‘fakecharities’.

Yet ‘fake-charities’ are not the only example of taxpayer’s money being ‘wasted’ and from this report it would appear that local authorities and Whitehall are also ‘wasting’ public money – in the name of diversity and political correctness it can only be assumed; but, without doubt, as a result of immigration.

Immigration – hence the title of this article – is a subject that not one of the three main political parties wishes to discuss, coupled with membership of the European Union, or so it seems.

£50million spent on translating documents into foreign languages on such a range of subjects and for the benefit of ‘minority’ groups as beggars belief – and some of these, it is stated, have never even been read!

“Carers’ Assessment – Bengali, Hindi, Kurdish, Punjabi, Somali

Caring for Carers – Hindi

FAQs about the new secondary school – Polish, Somali, Turkish

Haringey Women’s Directory – Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, French, Kurdish, Somali, Spanish, Urdu

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Service Directory – French

School transfer leaflet – French, Kurdish, Polish, Romanian, Somali

Supporting People [help for vulnerable adults] – Kurdish, Somali

Traveller leaflet – Polish

All produced by Haringey council and distributed through its website, which recorded zero downloads in each case.”

A spokesman for Haringey Council is quoted as saying “Haringey has some 193 different languages spoken…….” It is appreciated that Britain has become a multi-cultural society but – 193 different languages? Within one local authority area?

And when were we taxpayers asked if we would provide £50million of our money for a service to benefit the ‘underprivileged’ members of our society, a service which it seems the majority of said ‘underprivileged’ don’t wish to use? No doubt some bureaucrat will now decide that the lack of ‘take-up’ is due to the service not being widely known and so decide to spend more of the taxpayer’s money publicising it!

When one considers the ‘benefits of immigration’ that our politicians are so fond of reminding us, then take into account the ‘costs’ of fake-charities, government quangos and the rest also, no doubt, providing ‘translation services’, the figure of £50million must be but the tip of the iceberg. Add in the additional ‘costs’ to our public services, such as health, education, law & order and it would then also be reasonable to believe that the ‘disadvantages’ start to outweigh the ‘advantages’.

An article by Max Hastings in the Mail highlights the problem of immigration in this country and the possible reason why the BNP gained the votes it did.

“Some 24 per cent of all births in this country are to foreign-born mothers.” and “Today, there are 300 primary schools in England where more than 70 per cent of pupils – nearly half a million children – use English only as a second language.” and “….there are estimated to be 725,000 illegal immigrants in the country, 518,000 of these in London.”

Of all the reasons contained in the argument against membership of the European Union, surely immigration and the need for 100% control of our own borders is one of the most important.

Politicians of the three main parties are aghast at the rise of the BNP, wonder how on earth it has happened and what they can do to counter said rise. In answer to the latter point, perhaps if the three main parties took their ‘heads out of the sand’ and actually discussed immigration and its consequences, it would be a start! It is also possible to suggest that another reason they seem unwilling, or unable, to discuss what is under their noses is that their noses have been, and possibly still are, buried too deeply in the trough!

Needless to say, no-one is advocating the policy proposed by the BNP, however it is obvious to the electorate, if not to the political classes, that something has to be done and done quickly. One gets the feeling that the subject of immigration will play a large part in the ‘arguments’ put forward by all political parties at the next General election!
