MULTI-CULTURALISTS HISTORICAL LIES EXPOSED!


MULTI-CULTURALISTS HISTORICAL LIES EXPOSED!


I have just read a very interesting and profoundly significant book by Dario Fernandez-Morera, the Associate Professor at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese in North Western University. The book is called “The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise – Muslims, Christians and Jews under Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain”. The book has been very thoroughly researched and, for the academically minded, has nearly 100 pages of closely typed footnotes providing sources and evidence for every assertion.


The reason such detailed research is required is because the effect of the book is to explode the unhistorical Leftist theory that has been put forward by academics, politicians and media commentators that Islamic Spain or Al-Andalus was a “multi-culturalist” and “Diverse” paradise.


In fact as Professor Fernandez-Morera shows in comprehensive detail, the written sources, whether they be Islamic or Christian or Jewish, are all agreed there was nothing more or less than the typical Islamist tyranny with widespread executions and discriminatory legal rules suppressing, in particular, Christians.


The current political importance of this research is that it means that those Leftists advocating “multi-culturalism” are now left with no Islamic example in history where “multi-culturalism” and “diversity” has worked nicely, instead what we are left with is very many examples where multi-culturalism has led either to civil war or the need for a ruthless tyranny to put down the dissident elements within the area controlled by that State.


It should however be remembered that “multi-culturalism” has been adopted or fostered by most Empires throughout history. In the case of the British Empire it is worth remembering its record of applying the ancient Roman imperial formula of “Divide and Rule” (“divide et impera”). 



I wrote about that, as regards Malaya, in this article >>> THE IMPERIALISTIC ROOTS OF MULTI-CULTURALISM

http://robintilbrook.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/the-imperialistic-roots-of-multi.html



Within pre-First World War Europe the key example of a multi-culturalist state was the Austro-Hungarian Empire with its detailed rules on the entitlements of the various ethnic groups within that Empire.


When reading Professor Fernandez-Morera’s book I often wondered about the motivation of the various historians who are quoted telling the most outrageous lies about what life was like in Al-Andalus.


It would be very interesting to know whether their remarks are a product of both sloppy research and of simply going with the least line of resistance in following those others who have made similar remarks, or whether they have a specific purpose in distorting the history to make out that Islamic Spain was ruled justly and thus to ignore the sufferings and oppression of the subjugated Christians.


Given that academics do not mislead in the same way in writing about other parts of the world, such as when Christians subjugated others in more modern Colonial history, it seems to me to be far more likely that the misleading about Medieval Islamic Span has been done deliberately and has been done to specifically advance the multi-culturalist political project with an eye to undermining our own culture and civilisation.






Do read it for yourself and see what you think!

THE SCANDAL OF BBC WAGES – THE REAL STORY


THE SCANDAL OF BBC WAGES – THE REAL STORY IS NOT THE INEQUALITY BUT THE EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF REMUNERATION TAKEN FROM TAXPAYERS FUNDS


I have read with amazement the mainstream media’s coverage of the BBC’s pay scandal which in its obsession with politically correct equality seems to have missed the main common sense point.


It should be remembered that the BBC exists primarily on a so-called syndicated tax. This is the “Licence Fee” which forces us all to pay the BBC £147 for the right to use a television whether we watch the BBC or not.


Any of us that do not pay the “Licence Fee” can be prosecuted and potentially sent to prison.


It is also worth remembering that everyone of those whose taxpayer funded pay has just been revealed is being paid more than the Prime Minister (who is currently paid p.a. £150,402)!


So now we all know where so much of our money goes!


It seems that it is being paid to people whose contribution to any serious public interest benefit (which you might expect from a taxpayer funded entity) is often extremely questionable.


It is also interesting to consider what these now revealed salaries show about the BBC's bias. Almost all their top names are Leftist Remainers! In fact the only one who isn’t, that I have noticed so far, is Andrew Neil.


I ask you:-

1. Whether Chris Evans, with his declared pay of £2.2m (14,966 times the licence fee!), or Graham Norton, with his declared pay of £850,000 (5,783 times the licence fee), are doing anything socially useful that is worth such a huge amount of taxpayer money?


2. Also whether even the supposedly more serious “public interest” broadcasting personnel, such as Huw Edwards (£600,000), Eddie Mair (£425,000) are worth anything like the money they are being paid?


In the circumstances I wonder if I would be alone in suggesting that far from raising any of the BBC’s women’s salaries, what should be done is to reduce the salaries of all those relevant employees of the BBC so that none gets more than the Prime Minister?


Further I would say that as regards all positions that are taxpayer funded – that is right across the UK State – all their pay should be subject to a maximum figure of what the Prime Minister gets, unless there is a specific reason justifying the exception (such as the need to recruit a particular person whose salary has to exceed the Prime Minister for reasons of competition with other potential employers).

Given the general lack of talent amongst senior UK State employees, and the UK’s various quangos, I would doubt whether that condition would often be met!

Who would agree?

WHAT THE GRENFELL TOWER DISASTER REALLY SHOWS THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT REPORTING


WHAT THE GRENFELL TOWER DISASTER REALLY SHOWS THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT REPORTING



I have deferred commenting on the Grenfell Tower disaster for some weeks, partly in order to let all the understandable grief of the individuals, and the knee-jerk reactions by various commentators, time to subside. However we seem to be continuing to hear demands by those speaking for the residents that the Judge dealing with the inquiry should be somebody like them. It is therefore worth considering what somebody like “them” is like.


One of the most striking things that can be said about what we saw on our TV and computer screens and in the newspapers of the pictures of the missing, and of their naturally distraught relatives and friends, it is that hardly any were English. Furthermore it was abundantly obvious that a large proportion of them were Muslim and clearly dressed in such a way as to show they are the sort of Muslims who have no inclination to integrate with English society.


Given that this tower block was public housing, or as we used to call it, “council housing”, it is a remarkable and a sorry reflection of just how appallingly badly managed immigration has been by the British Political Establishment over the last 50 years that a public housing tower block in the middle of our capital city should have next to no English people in it! What a disgrace that is! The English Democrats have long said that only our citizens should be entitled to any welfare benefits, free medical care or council housing.


We then come to the cause of the fire. It has been strangely unclear from the reports what exactly caused the fire. Given the general dishonesty of our media in trying to prevent reporting of things that might give rise to suspicion and hostility towards politically correct causes; and that this fire was started about the time when many of the residents of the tower block were breaking their fast after sunset during Ramadan it seems to me not at all unlikely that the fire was caused by something like the barbequing of kebabs in an unsafe way within the tower block. Even if that is not the case there does seem to be many reasons for being suspicious about the origin of the fire.


So far as the reason why the fire got out of control, that seems to be partly a consequence of the so-called environmentalist lobby in seeking to put cladding on the outside of tower blocks in order to insulate them. There is also the EU, in overriding the British Building Standards, to insist upon EU compliant cladding which is less fire resistant.


Naturally the fire inspection process has been made radically less effective in protection against fires by the focus on compliance with EU directives rather than on the safety of the occupants.


This type of regulatory overload is not at all an unusual situation in the UK now where the original purpose of an activity is often lost sight of in a maze of inane legal rules and political correctness.


The one thing we can be sure of there will be many more problems caused by the general institutionalized uselessness of the UK’s public authorities!

Finally here is an interesting article which has been circulated to me:-


As the catastrophe at Grenfell Tower has been so" Politicised" you may be interested to see these facts - especially the last paragraph....

The following appear to be matters of public record:

1. The block of flats was run not by the Council but by Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO). This body is made up of 8 TENANTS, 4 councillors and 3 independent members.

2. Labour hold the seat that the block is situated in.

3. Labour run the London Council who manage the under-funded London Fire Service

4. Emma Coad the sitting Labour MP for that ward also sat on the KCTMO.

5. The advice to stay put which Sadiq Khan has been so vocal about was given by the London Fire Service.

6. The decision to change contractors during the refurb was made by KCTMO.

7. The decision not to spend an additional £138k on fitting sprinklers was again KCTMO.

8. The decision to create Arms Length Management Organisations (ALMO) such as the KCTMO was made under the Right To Manage legislation passed in 2002 as part of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act.

9. This was put in place to give leaseholders and tenants a greater say and the ability to self manage, which in some circumstances has clearly proven to be flawed.

10. Which Govt was in a charge when this law was passed? It was Labour.

11. Sadiq Khan as mayor of London Produced a report to say that the fire service did not need further funding.

12. Emma Coad elected Labour MP was on the board of the Tenant Management group who are being accused of not listening to tenants.

Further, according to Christopher Booker (a strong advocate for Remain) in the Telegraph, when the Grenfell Tower was built, the cladding materials were glass-based and inert. Fire could not pass through or behind the cladding.


Since then, authority for specification of construction materials has passed from individual governments to the EU. The EU has decreed, as part of climate change initiatives, that the main purpose of cladding is to provide insulation, thus reducing the need to burn fuel. When, three years ago, Kensington spent £10m on up-rating the Grenfell Tower it had no option but to use cladding permitted by the EU. Unfortunately, the cladding is not fireproof.
 

I have not (yet) heard anybody accuse the EU of responsibility for the fire - though that is where at least part of the blame lies.”

Complaint made about Judge who claimed 'we are LUCKY to live in a multi-racial society'!


Complaint made about Judge who claimed 'we are LUCKY to live in a multi-racial society'! 

I read with dismay the reported remarks of District Judge Emma Arbuthnot in sentencing Viscount St Davids and I have therefore written the following complaint to the Lord Chancellor:- 
Lord Chancellor’s Department
Judicial Complaints
Ministry of Justice
102 Petty France 
London  SW1H 9AJ

Dear Sir

Re:  Complaint against District Judge Emma Arbuthnot
Politically biased sentencing remarks

I am making this complaint on behalf of the English Lobby which is a ‘not for profit company’ whose purpose is to stand up for English values and the English Nation.

We read with dismay the reported remarks of District Judge Emma Arbuthnot in sentencing Viscount St Davids.  We do not know anything other than what was reported in the newspapers, internet and broadcast media about the offences for which Viscount St Davids was convicted and sentenced, but it is a fundamental principle of English Justice that Judges are neither politically biased, nor give the appearance of being politically biased. 

Judging from the reported remarks this was not the case with this District Judge.  She used the opportunity to grandstand her personal political views before the national media in a case with considerable press interest because of person being sentenced was a member of the aristocracy.  In these circumstances the District Judge is quoted as having said:- “this multi-racial society we are lucky enough to live in.” 

This is not a statement of law, on the contrary this remark is blatantly politically loaded and partisan.  It is not a remark that everyone would agree with, but it is simply an expression of the current Establishment orthodoxy of liberal multi-culturalism.  Clearly she would have been well within her rights to both hold such an opinion and also to express it both as a private citizen and in most public offices.  This is not the position however for a Judge holding forth from the judicial bench in Court.

From her other remarks in the case one suspects that the District Judge was also in the minority on the issue of Brexit which seems to have been part of the matrix of the alleged offences. 

In short it is quite wrong for any Judge either in sentencing or in convicting in any court to give voice to their personal prejudices and political opinions however orthodox.  In this situation the District Judge has brought discredit to her office and should be disciplined.  If this is part of a pattern of behaviour by her, then perhaps she should be dismissed. 

Yours faithfully


R C W Tilbrook


Here is the English Lobby's press release:-
PRESS RELEASE

The English Lobby complaint made about the Judge who sentenced Viscount claiming we are LUCKY to live in a multi-racial society.

The English Lobby has written a letter of complaint to the Lord Chancellor to discipline District Judge Emma Arbuthnot for her blatant political bias and discriminatory prejudice in making the above remark.  Whilst this remark is fully in accordance with the increasing prevalence of Judges who are multi-culturalist liberals, it is nevertheless a blatant breach of an English judge’s constitutional and legal duty to be impartial and politically neutral. 

Robin Tilbrook, the Director of the English Lobby said:-  “Some people think like the District Judge that “this (is a) multi-racial society (which) we are LUCKY enough to live in”.”  Many others do not welcome it or accept it and others actively oppose it, so for the District Judge to use her opportunity of maximum publicity in a high profile case to make a blatantly political point was and is an abuse of her judicial position for which she should be disciplined. 

Let us see if the new Lord Chancellor, David Lidington MP, knows his duty and reins in this blatant display of political bias by a Judge. 


If you feel the same way about this please use the address above to put in your own complaint!

HOW MUCH ENGLISH MONEY WILL BE USED TO BUY DEMOCRATIC UNIONISTS' SUPPORT IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS?




HOW MUCH ENGLISH MONEY WILL BE USED TO BUY DEMOCRATIC UNIONISTS' SUPPORT IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS?

The current level of Barnet Formula style annual block grant from the English taxpayer to Northern Ireland is standing at £10.4 billion per year.  That is somewhat more than the total net subscription/subsidy to the European Union that so much of the argument during the European Referendum campaign was about! 

That adds up to a subsidy to every man, woman and child in Northern Ireland of £5,437 more public money than they will averagely have paid in taxes being paid to the population of Northern Ireland which is as per the 2011 Census, £1,810,863 (£1.8m).   This means that, as set out in the House of Commons Briefing Paper number 04033, published on the 8th March 2015, whereas the average Government spend per head in England was £8,638 in Northern Ireland it was £11,106. 

Dominic Lawson, the son of Mrs Thatcher’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, Nigel Lawson, and who is a former Editor of the Sunday Telegraph, wrote in the Sunday Times on June 18th (see below) that “there are no more successful shakers of the magic money tree than Northern Ireland’s politicians”.  The question is how successful will the DUP be in shaking the English magic money tree? (or as I would rather put it picking English pockets!).

I seen reported rumours of an extra 1.4 Billion or an extra £2.5 billion and have even heard a rumour, which like all such rumours of course is un-attributable and unverifiable, that the demand may even be an extra billion for every one of the ten DUP votes in the House of Commons.  If the latter is true, that would of course then lead to a doubling of the figures which I gave above, with over £10,000 of English Taxpayers’ money being spent on average for every man, woman and child in Northern Ireland!

In the past we in the English nationalist Cause have tended to compare our country’s treatment with that of Scotland.  This is partly because of the success of the SNP in highlighting the independence issue for Scotland and thereby successfully blackmailing the British Political Establishment to try to buy Scottish votes for the Union.  This latest development will of course not be generally about buying Northern Irish votes for the Union, but specifically buying the votes of the 10 DUP MPs in the House of Commons.

It will be interesting to see whether English People do begin to realise that they are being taken for fools with perhaps by as much as £20 billion of cuts on English hospitals, schools, roads, students etc., because of the fact that that money has been spent in Northern Ireland.

As mentioned above Dominic Lawson wrote in an article on June 18 2017, 12:01am, in The Sunday Times
“We are all being DUPed into a merry splurge”
In the article he writes:- “The DUP is socially conservative — reflecting the communities it represents — but in other respects it is to the left of the party May leads. Or, perhaps more accurately, it is populist. Its manifesto opposed the Conservative policy of removing the pensions triple lock and introducing means-testing for the winter fuel allowance. At the same time it advocated that the province be exempted from the BBC licence fee and air passenger duty. Its determination on this last point is apparently what’s holding up the deal: the chancellor, Philip Hammond, is understandably reluctant.

You get the picture. There are no more successful shakers of the magic money tree than Northern Ireland’s politicians. Figures released by the Office for National Statistics last month showed that while Scotland consumed £2,824 more in public expenditure per capita than it raised in taxes — a source of irritation to the English — the average inhabitant of Northern Ireland consumed £5,437 more public money than they paid in taxes. There has been a payment from London to Ulster of about £10bn in each of the past three years, slightly more than the UK as a whole has been paying — net — to the EU.

Obviously, the latter is to foreign countries, while the colossal transfers across the Irish Sea are to poorer fellow countrymen and women, with all the demands of solidarity that status entails. But it is quite a racket. To give just one example: if a legal chambers in London gets a call from Northern Ireland, the clerk will take it with a song in his heart. While legal aid in England has suffered drastic changes in allowable charges, in Ulster legal aid is, as one practitioner put it to me cheerfully, “still the same old gravy train”.

In England legal aid was one of the non-ring-fenced areas of spending that most felt the effects of what David Cameron and George Osborne offered as the solution to a national credit card maxed out by Gordon Brown: “austerity”, they called it, and the word stuck.”

GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS



GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS

Amongst all the Tory angst and delusional crowing from the Labour side, as well as the fall out for the Liberal Democrats there has been very few reports about the English Democrats’ results. 

Before getting on to those I would just like to point out that, although Theresa May made many mistakes in both the calling and the conduct of the General Election, the sheer numbers of people voting Conservative did actually go up quite significantly. 

The Labour vote went up by slightly more, but the results aren’t a product of their increase in the vote, they are a product of more effective targeting by Labour than by the Conservatives. 

In particular Mrs May made the mistake of calling the General Election whilst it was still during the Universities’ term time and therefore lost several seats by small margins because of the student vote.  It also appears that some Labour student voters voted twice from some of the more idiotic boasting on social media!  I shall be drawing that to the attention of the police and of the Electoral Commission. 

Despite having somewhat increased their seats the Liberal Democrat Leader was forced out as a result of a coup within the Liberal Democrats.  This appears to have been orchestrated by Brian Paddick, whose only known achievement is to have been a senior policeman promoted, so far as one can tell, mainly because of him being gay, rather than because of any merit of his as an effective police officer. 

Tim Farron has expressly confirmed that it is no longer possible to be a Liberal Democrat and a genuine practicing orthodox Christian, let alone a scripturally based Evangelical Christian. As I have said in a previous blog, our politically correct British political Establishment has now decided that it is a breach of “fundamental British values” (sic!) to believe as Christ states in the New Testament:- “I am the way, the truth and the life:  no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14.6). 

So far as UKIP is concerned, they have, of course, not only failed to win any seats but also lost the one seat that they had actually won in Clacton. They also lost almost all of their deposits. A result made worse by their leadership’s decision to stand 377 candidates instead of the 106 which would have been all that would have been required in order to qualify them to get all the publicity that they did in fact get during the election. 

So far as the English Democrats are concerned, we were not prepared for the election and, indeed, had spent all that was available on our standing in the local and Mayoral elections and so were only able to put up 7 candidates with the short notice given.  Most of our candidates did not distribute any leaflets, but in any case the issue, as we now know over many years’ experience, is not so much getting a single leaflet out, but much more importantly having the manpower resources to knock on doors, to have got data on our potential supporters already collected and to be allowed to do further leafleting of all potential supporters to make sure that they did actually turn out and vote. 

As our results show we are nowhere near achieving that yet. 

We do however fully intend to be at the position where we can win some seats at the next General Election. 

That is the aim which I am setting the English Democrats and we will be working towards achieving that and hope to be successful in doing it, provided of course that the next General Election isn’t called on another sudden whim by whomsoever happens to be the then Leader of the Conservative Party!

Here are our election results:-

North East Cambridgeshire – Stephen Goldspink – 293
Barnsley East – Kevin Riddiough – 287
Barnsley Central – Stephen Morris – 211
Holborn & St Pancras – Janus Polenceus – 93
Clacton – Robin Tilbrook – 289
Bradford South – Therese Hirst – 377
Doncaster North – David Allen – 363

I would also like to say thank you very much to our candidates for standing in the General Election and for keeping the flame of English nationalism burning. 
To quote the English theologian and historian, Thomas Fuller, in his religious travelogue 'A Pisgah-Sight of Palestine And The Confines Thereof' of 1650:-

THERESA MAY'S JUNE 8TH GENERAL ELECTION DEBACLE


THERESA MAY'S JUNE 8TH GENERAL ELECTION DEBACLE



What a difference two months make in the new weak and wobbly British political landscape!


Two months ago we had the usual county council local elections occurring with some of George Osborne’s new “Metro” mayoral elections. Theresa May and the Government was regularly reassuring people that there was not going to be any General Election until 2020.


We are told that Theresa May then, on a walking holiday with her husband in Wales, decided that she was going to call a General Election.


Certainly in terms of the strategic and logistical background it does generally seem to have been an ill-considered and whimsical decision. One thing that we do know about May is that she does not consult widely. She only talks candidly to an inner circle of loyalists who are said to number no more than eight, including her husband and Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill West.


It has been leaked that nobody in the Cabinet was consulted about the decision and they were simply presented with a fait accompli that the decision had been made and that they were going for it. The same appears to be true about the disastrous manifesto and her further poor decision not to take part in any head-on TV debates with Corbyn.


The result is that her reputation has gone from Machiavellian Mastermind to Blithering Blunderer within the space of a few weeks!


Jeremy Corbyn on the other hand, to listen to journalist reports, has gone from Unelectable Loony Lefty to Populist Pied Piper in the same period!


Ignoring the hype what can sensibly be identified as the elements of May’s poor decision-making!


Politicians often think that they are the masters of electional planning. It is however true that whilst they have a lot of experience of the tactics of electioneering, they may not be the best judges of strategy and what needs to be considered at a strategic level.


Two startling examples of Mrs May’s failure to think through the strategy is that, if she had merely had the election a month later, the students from the universities would have been dispersed to their homes all over the country, in many cases not having a vote registered there and the string of Conservative losses such as Canterbury, Bath, Bristol West, etc. and Nick Clegg’s loss of Sheffield Hallam would not have taken place. Those are completely explicable in terms of the student vote. The fact that issue wasn’t even considered before timetabling the election must demonstrate vividly the lack of strategic planning within her process of decision making to call the election.


Another issue which is difficult to reconcile with any suggestion that there was a strategic element in the decision-making process is that the Government only needed to wait until October 2018 before the new House of Commons boundaries would come into force. These boundaries have been calculated on current populations and are thought to make it much easier for the Conservatives to get an overall majority. For a Conservative Leader to ignore that advantage in deciding to call an election shows a staggering lack of strategic thinking.


More generally I do not think that Theresa May succeeded in persuading voters that the election was really necessary for the purpose that she claimed to be calling it, i.e. as a mandate to push through her Brexit negotiations. Her unwillingness to take part in televised debates helped to make Jeremy Corbyn look a much more effective leader than she was. Her frankly rather silly slogans didn’t help to improve her standing.


We can’t however ignore the further example of catastrophic decision-making process which led to her producing her manifesto, without proper consultation with her Cabinet colleagues. It made even pensioners in English country towns and villages all across the land who had never voted for any other party other than the Conservatives in their lives, question whether they really wanted to support such a blunt attack on their interests. 



Indeed the manifesto was so bad in terms of populist appeal, that if you were minded towards a conspiracy theory then you might think that Mrs May had actually tried to lose the election! Personally I generally are more inclined to “cock-up” this “conspiracy” theory. I think that what has happened is not only a demonstration of Mrs May’s inadequacies, but also more generally how poor the British parliamentary system is at producing people to occupy leadership positions who genuinely have any real leadership abilities and characteristics.


Theresa May is one example of somebody with virtually no natural leadership ability. So of course was Gordon Brown another example. Jeremy Corbyn seemed to be similar but the fact is that when he was able to break out of the Westminster bubble effect, he does seem to have shown some considerable personal leadership qualities. The fact remains though that the establishment's party system regularly seems to give people leadership titles and puts them into leadership roles which they are clearly personally unsuited to filling.
