‘Anti-racist’ councillor in fraud probe

It’s been a tough summer for Britain’s anti-racists.  First Searchlight had its website sabotaged; then its editor’s former partner in crime Manny Carpel was jailed for drug trafficking; then Hope not Hate‘s funding from George Soros foundations was exposed in a massive data leak.

Now another disaster for ‘anti-fascism’.  Transport union official Sam Tarry was campaign organiser for Hope not Hate in Barking & Dagenham, once the BNP’s flagship borough, where Tarry no doubt believes he played an important role in turning back the fascist tide.

In fact that had already been achieved by the BNP leader himself, scuttling his own party, but at least Sam Tarry managed to get a seat for himself as a Labour councillor in Barking, where he has received £20,000 in council allowances.

Sadly this meteoric political rise might be about to end in yet another crash and burn.  The main headline in today’s Sunday Times exposes an “electoral fraud row” involving Cllr Tarry.

In order to stand for Barking & Dagenham council, he had to be registered as living at an address in the borough (or work there).  Yet according to the Sunday Times he actually lives 70 miles away in Brighton.

Tarry is presently director of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership campaign.

As the Sunday Times points out:

Councillors are required by law to live or work in the borough they represent and must sign an official declaration to that effect.  Making a false declaration is punishable by up to six months in prison.  Making a false registration to vote carries a penalty of up to 51 weeks in jail.

Richard Smalley, formerly a Tory member of Derby city council, was last week sentenced to two months in jail for claiming he lived in Derby while living outside the city.

Note: The original story is behind a Times paywall so the full report can only be seen by subscribers.  However a later version of the story can also be seen on the Telegraph website.

Tarry has denied the allegations, and his lawyers suggest that “any suggestion of criminality or breach of election law is defamatory and inaccurate”.

Is this the end for the English Democrats?

English-democrats--003

During the crumbling of Nick Griffin’s BNP after the 2010 general election, several of the party’s best activists opted to join the English Democrats. The main advocate of this move was Eddy Butler, the BNP’s East London election guru who had relocated to Epping Forest, where he masterminded several local council election victories but became a factional opponent of Griffin. Those who accepted Mr Butler’s advice included former Leeds city councillor Chris Beverley and Barnsley branch organiser Ian Sutton.

One undoubted advantage of the EDs is that the party’s founder and leader – Essex solicitor Robin Tilbrook – is a thoroughly decent and honest man.  Unlike Nick Griffin or his successors in the BNP, Mr Tilbrook puts money into his party rather than taking it out. But this year’s election nominations suggest that he might be running out of patience and optimism. (Most of the party’s recruits from the BNP have already dropped out.)

The EDs had announced that controversial former UKIP activist Winston McKenzie would be their candidate for Mayor of London, but at the close of nominations his was found to be invalid, due to one signatory having also nominated another candidate. Perhaps this was a straightforward if foolish error, but suspicious minds speculated that the EDs might have decided not to waste their £10,000 deposit (plus a further £10,000 to appear in the booklet and additional costs of a credible campaign).

Such suspicions were heightened when instead of the advertised fourteen or fifteen candidates in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections, the EDs in fact nominated only four.  At the previous PCC elections ED candidates had saved several deposits, but the party leadership will be well aware that this time the turnout of major party voters will be much higher, since polling day coincides with local council elections. Consequently ED candidates are this time unlikely to save their £5,000 deposits in the PCC contests.

If the previously high-spending EDs have decided to cut costs, this might indicate the beginning of the end for the party.  Regrettably there is little political space for the English Democrats, unless and until UKIP’s challenge falls apart.

 

Nationalist candidates nominated in London

GLA City Hall

Despite his party’s well-documented problems, the BNP’s David Furness will contest the London Mayoral election on May 5th. His nomination was officially confirmed this morning, as was the rival mayoral candidature of former BNP official Paul Golding, who now leads the anti-Islamic party Britain First.

Messrs Furness and Golding (and their campaign teams) are to be congratulated on completing the UK’s most arduous nomination process, which involved collecting signatures from each of London’s boroughs as well as the City of London.

This task proved beyond the financially secure but organisationally weak English Democrats, a civic nationalist party which recruited a few of the BNP’s best former activists in 2011 but seems now to be in decline.  ED mayoral candidate Winston McKenzie failed to submit valid nomination papers and has been disqualified from the election. (Similarly the National Liberal Party – co-founded by Patrick Harrington who now acts as the brains behind the BNP leadership – failed to nominate a mayoral candidate after previously announcing Upkar Singh Raj as their standard bearer.)

The BNP and Britain First will also have slates of candidates for the London-wide list section of the Greater London Assembly, headed by David Furness for the BNP and Jayda Franzen for Britain First. It is this list section which gives smaller parties (including nationalists) a realistic chance of winning a GLA seat: in practice the target is 5%, and with more than 6% there is a good chance of gaining a second seat.

The BNP’s Richard Barnbrook was elected in 2008 with 5.3%, the party’s best ever GLA vote, while Jason Douglas only just missed out in 2004 when the BNP polled 4.7%. In 2014 the BNP vote fell to 2.1%, its worst ever London result, and realistically the target this year will not be to win, but merely to increase that vote.

The BNP list includes East London sub-regional organiser Paul Sturdy, and organisers from three of the few remaining BNP branches in the capital: Croydon’s John Clarke, Bexley’s Michael Jones and next door Bromley’s Roger Tonks. Also from the Bexley branch are Peter and Nicola Finch and Philip Dalton.

At GLA constituency level, it is likely that the only nationalist candidate will be the National Front’s Richard Edmonds, in the Croydon & Sutton constituency – where to underline the state of our capital city, both the Liberal Democrat and Labour candidates are named Ahmad!

For the first time there will be no nationalist candidate in the City & East constituency, which includes the old and more recent BNP strongholds of Tower Hamlets and Barking & Dagenham. The BNP saved their deposit in City & East eight years ago with 9.8%, and even in 2012 managed a respectable 4.1% but will not be on that ballot paper this year.

In most of the rest of England, local council election candidates are still being nominated and final lists will not be confirmed until the end of next week: the same applies for the Welsh Assembly, and Police and Crime Commisioner elections which are taking place everywhere in England and Wales (except London and Greater Manchester).

Scottish Parliament nominations closed this afternoon, with the NF chairman Dave MacDonald expected to be the only racial nationalist candidate.

Nominations for the Northern Ireland Assembly have only just opened, and will not close until April 12th.

Nationalist parties prepare for London elections

Not so long ago, British nationalists could look forward to elections in London – eagerly anticipating results that would disturb the liberal establishment.

In 2008 for example, Richard Barnbrook was elected as the BNP’s first (and so far only) member of the Greater London Assembly.  Two years earlier the party had gained twelve council seats in one London borough, becoming the official opposition to Labour in Barking & Dagenham.

Though neither the BNP nor any other nationalist candidate has so managed the 5% needed to save their deposit in the main mayoral election, the BNP’s candidates did manage respectable results in the first three of these contests. Mike Newland in 2000 polled 2.0%; Julian Leppert in 2004 increased this to 3.1%; and Richard Barnbrook in 2008 scored the party’s highest ever London mayoral vote of 3.2%. Unsurprisingly this slipped way back to 1.3% in 2012 for the party’s most recent mayoral candidate Carlos Cortiglia.

We shall not know the official list of mayoral candidates this year until nominations close on March 31st, but the BNP has already announced that Dave Furness will be their mayoral candidate, while ex-BNP official Paul Golding is standing for the anti-Islamic party Britain First.

Some former BNP activists are now in the English Democrats, whose mayoral candidate this year is former boxer and ex-UKIP candidate Winston McKenzie. A few former NF activists from the 1980s are now in the National Liberal Party, which was co-founded by Patrick Harrington, the brains behind the current BNP leadership.  The NLP’s mayoral candidate this year is Upkar Singh Raj, a Sikh IT consultant and Uber driver.

In addition to the high-profile mayoral election, there are elections to the Greater London Assembly, both on a London-wide list and in constituencies (which each include two or three London boroughs).

Nationalist veteran Richard Edmonds has already begun his campaign for the GLA’s Croydon & Sutton constituency, and has posted a video broadcast (see below). H&D will report on the progress of nationalist campaigns across the capital, both here on this website and in our May 2016 edition.

Militant anti-fascist selected for GLA seat

(left to right) Unmesh Desai, anti-fascist street fighter turned GLA candidate; Sadiq Khan, Labour candidate for Mayor of London; John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets; and Sir Robin Wales, Mayor of Newham.

Militant anti-fascist Unmesh Desai will be Labour candidate for the Greater London Assembly this year in the City & East constituency, which includes former BNP strongholds of Barking & Dagenham, Newham, and Tower Hamlets as well as the City of London.

He replaces John Biggs, who has represented the constituency since the GLA was created but was last year elected Mayor of Tower Hamlets following a bitter struggle with independent Muslim powerbroker Lutfur Rahman.

In recent years Unmesh Desai has been a classic Labour Party careerist, and has strongly endorsed the British establishment’s ‘Prevent’ strategy against Islamist extremism.

But nationalists will remember his younger days as a notoriously hardline anti-fascist.  He was part of a faction known as the ‘squaddists’ who were expelled from the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party for advocating violence against the NF, BNP and other nationalists.

During the 1980s he worked with fellow ‘squaddists’ in Red Action and Anti-Fascist Action, then co-founded the Newham Monitoring Project, a group of Asian ‘anti-racist’ activists who for years were closely associated with Searchlight.

(Several H&D features over the years have detailed the violent history of these organisations.)

Eventually Desai became a Labour councillor in Newham and is now very much part of the mainstream Labour establishment.

It remains to be seen what the many devout Muslim voters in Tower Hamlets will make of Desai, who is from a Hindu Indian background and once stated: “Searchlight is my bible”.

 

George Galloway assault: Britain First Facebook ‘friend’ charged

George Galloway MP shortly after the attack in Notting Hill on Friday night

Controversial MP and anti-Zionist campaigner George Galloway was attacked in the street near Notting Hill’s Portobello Road market on Friday night.  Galloway was taken to hospital suffering from suspected broken ribs and a broken jaw.

His assailant was reported to have been shouting about the “Holocaust” shortly before the attack.

According to the BBC, police have arrested 39-year-old Neil Masterson and charged him with “religiously aggravated assault”.  What the BBC has not reported is that Masterson appears to be a fanatical Zionist (and as it happens a Manchester City fan).

His Facebook “friends” include a host of Jewish and Christian Zionist individuals and groups, as well as Britain First, the militant anti-Islamic group run by former BNP official Paul Golding, until recently under the auspices of Nick Griffin’s former right hand man Jim Dowson.

On August 12th, two weeks before the assault, Masterson posted on a Facebook page ‘United with Israel’:
“No other military in the world comes close to the IDF, in terms of operational, legislative brakes on its command structure… Israel bows to no one in maintaing the highest standards of human rights.”

We understand that Mr Masterson is a Roman Catholic and was originally from the Preston area, but is now living in North London.

Latest twist in Maoist cult tale

John Herivel, wartime codebreaker and father of one of the three ‘slaves’ freed from a Maoist sect

The Daily Telegraph has revealed that one of the three alleged “slaves” freed from a Maoist political cult is the daughter of a famous wartime codebreaker at Bletchley Park.

Belfast-born Josephine Herivel, now 59, is said to have contacted the Freedom Charity last month stating that she and two other women – 30 year old Rosie Davies and 69 year old Aishah Wahab – were being held against their will.  The charity contacted the police, who raided a house in Peckford Place, south London.

On Sunday evening Heritage and Destiny revealed that the two cult leaders arrested in the case are Aravinda Balakrishnan and his wife Chanda: we detailed Balakrishnan’s former role in the Communist Party of England (Marxist-Leninist), a violent Maoist group with links to the terrorist Irish National Liberation Army. In 1974 ‘Comrade Bala’, as he was known to his fellow Marxists, broke away from the CPE (M-L) and established the Workers’ Institute of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-Tung Thought, based at a commune on Acre Lane, Brixton which he styled the Mao Memorial Centre.

London newspapers later confirmed our identification, and the H&D office has been contacted by several journalists seeking additional information.

Many years ago conspiracy theories circulated on the political fringe about Balakrishnan, speculating as to why the British authorities had taken such a close interest in his tiny sect.  In December 1981 his former comrade Cornelius Cardew was killed in a hit and run accident, which fuelled further conspiracy theories. Cardew had remained loyal to the CPE (M-L), which changed its name to the Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist) in 1979.

On Christmas Eve 1996 one of Comrade Bala’s followers, Sian Davies, fell from a first floor window at another of the commune’s South London properties in Herne Hill. She died of her injuries a few months later, and her then-teenage daughter Rosie (now 30) is one of the three alleged “slaves” freed last month.

We can now be sure that MI5 and Scotland Yard’s Special Branch had been keeping a particularly close eye on Comrade Bala’s group since the 1970s, not only because of its involvement in “anti-fascist” violence and ties to INLA terrorists, but because cult member Josephine Herivel (who accompanied Balakrishnan to the 1997 inquest into Sian Davies’s death) was the daughter of John Herivel, one of the legends of British secret intelligence history.

John Herivel died in 2011 aged 92. He had been recuited from Cambridge in January 1940 to join the top secret codebreakers based at Bletchley Park where he was part of the team at ‘Hut 6’, tasked with decyphering versions of the Enigma code used by the German Army and Air Force.

Herivel’s decisive contribution in May 1940 – later known as the ‘Herivel tip’ – enabled the codebreakers to discover each day’s key to the Luftwaffe’s Enigma messages. Later in the war he worked as assistant to the Cambridge mathematician Max Newman, who was in charge of Bletchley’s unit on mechanised codebreaking which developed Colossus – the world’s first programmable computer.

When his daughter Josephine joined Balakrishnan’s cult in the mid-1970s, almost everything related to Bletchley remained top secret – so the security and intelligence services would have been intensely concerned. If and when the “slavery” case comes to trial next year, Whitehall’s files on the group might come under an unwelcome spotlight. Coincidentally Lord Harris of Haringey, chairman of trustees at the Freedom Charity which instigated last month’s police raid, is the Home Office representative on the Metropolitan Police Authority responsible for oversight of security matters and counterterrorism at the Met.

Video footage of Josephine Herivel from the time of the 1997 Sian Davies inquest can be seen at ITN’s website. A full analysis of the Balakrishnan saga will appear in the January edition of Heritage and Destiny, available from late December.

 

Marxist “slave” cult carried out “anti-fascist” assault

Prof. Hans Eysenck (above) was violently attacked in 1973 by an “anti-fascist” mob, one of whose leaders has now been accused of keeping “slaves” in his London home.

Earlier today London newspapers caught up with the news first revealed shortly after midnight last night on this website: naming the chief suspects in the sensational London “slavery” case as Marxist cult leader Aravindan Balakrishnan (known on the 1970s far left scene as “Comrade Bala”) and his wife (known as “Comrade Chanda”).

Police spokesmen had earlier stated only that Scotland Yard detectives’ rescue of three women – allegedly kept as slaves for thirty years – was linked to a political organisation.  Late on Sunday evening the Telegraph website gave certain details (though without naming the group concerned). This enabled H&D to identify the case as relating to a Maoist commune in Brixton known as the Workers’ Institute, which broke away from the Communist Party of England (Marxist-Leninist) in 1974. We were therefore able to break the story in the early hours of this morning.

Once the news had broken on our website, Scotland Yard’s press department confirmed to London journalists that the suspects were indeed Comrades Bala and Chanda, who had been living with their remaining Marxist cult members in “social housing” provided by Lambeth Council for more than three decades. The London Evening Standard labelled its story about the couple as an ‘Exclusive’, though in fact we had been the first to publish it here at H&D the previous night. The Daily Mail then published an online version, much of it blatantly lifted from our article.

Click here to read our original story about the Marxist “slave” cult.

Police and social services are now facing many questions about their knowledge of Balakrishnan and his gang since the 1970s.

In particular, Heritage and Destiny is interested in a violent attack on Prof. Hans Eysenck, while he was giving a lecture on “Current Theories of Intelligence” at the London School of Economics, on 8th May 1973.  This attack was carried out by about two dozen members of the CPE (M-L), including Balakrishnan who was then a leading activist in this Maoist group. (He split from them a year later.)

Prof. Eysenck, then 57, was widely demonised by the left and “anti-fascist” groups because of his views on the genetic role in intelligence.  Similar demonisation has been practiced against organisations such as American Renaissance and writers such as Jared Taylor and Dr Roger Pearson.

“Comrade Bala” and his fellow hoodlums pulled Prof. Eysenck to the floor, where he was punched, kicked and spat upon.  He was left with broken spectacles and cuts to his face, and was later treated at the Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill.

The Maoist gang, who included several bussed in from Birmingham, went on to attack some of their fellow leftists. One of the leaders of the Birmingham gang was Paul Rowe.

Loyalist commandos from the UVF identified INLA terrorist links to Balakrishnan’s fellow Maoists.

The CPE (M-L) – both during Balakrishnan’s involvement and after the 1974 split – did not confine its violent proclivities to punching middle-aged academics.  In July 1975 they were exposed by the Ulster loyalist journal Combat as the “most violent Communist organisation in the UK”. In March of that year members of the Ulster Volunteer Force had discovered letters from Paul Rowe and other members of the group to Michael Adamson, a terrorist from the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA), whom they had just shot dead at his home in Clifton Road, North Belfast.

Ironically Adamson had been identified following a tip-off from his former comrades in the so-called “Official IRA” after a split in the Marxist wing of Irish republicanism the previous year. The INLA and its political wing (the Irish Republican Socialist Party) went on to develop very close ties to violent “anti-fascists” in England and Scotland, which have been documented in several Heritage and Destiny articles.

All of this goes to show that Balakrishnan and his ilk should have been very well known to the British authorities. So if the latest police charges concerning “slavery” prove accurate, why was he allowed to get away with it for so long? Did it suit the British state to indulge violent “anti-fascists” with Irish republican links?

And why on earth was Balakrishnan effectively subsidised for so long by the hard-pressed ratepayers of Lambeth?

UPDATE: One of the CPE (M-L) recruits at the London School of Economics, where the attack on Prof. Eysenck took place, was a young Welsh law student called Sian Davies, whose daughter is the youngest of the alleged “slaves” in the current criminal investigation. After the 1974 split Sian Davies followed Balakrishnan and his faction into the Brixton commune, where she remained until her mysterious death after falling from an upstairs window on Christmas Eve, 1996.  The Daily Telegraph, ITN News and the Daily Mail have just posted reports about Sian Davies and these will doubtless appear in the print editions of Tuesday’s papers, though like other mainstream media sources they are (so far) too shy to mention the British Maoist cult’s involvement with violent anti-fascism and Irish republican terrorism.

By the way, the latest Telegraph report, in suggesting that Balakrishnan had joined “the Communist Party” in the 1960s before forming his cult, reveals a pretty basic ignorance of the British political fringe, and the Daily Mail is equally wrong to suggest that he was part of “an English branch of the Communist Party”.

What he joined was not the long-established pro-Moscow Communist Party (CPGB) or anything to do with it, but a pro-Chinese (and hence anti-Moscow) group founded by an Indian Maoist called Hardial Bains. The London wing of the international movement founded by Bains was called the Communist Party of England (Marxist-Leninist), and as we have explained Balakrishnan was one of the leaders of the CPE (M-L) until breaking away in 1974 to form his Brixton-based Workers’ Institute commune.

The fundamental enmity between the CPGB and the CPE (M-L) was reflected in their relationship to Irish republican terrorism.  While the Maoists (as explained above) were for a time close to the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA), the pro-Moscow Communist Party would have backed the group from which INLA broke away – the ‘Official IRA’ (commonly known as the “Stickies” because of the stick-on Easter Lilies they sold to commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising).

‘Citizen Smith’ leftist group: ‘slavery’ charges

Police stand guard at a property in Peckford Place, south London, where three women were rescued after allegedly being kept as slaves for 30 years.

A bizarre communist group in London is at the centre of police investigations after three women were rescued by police from a house in Peckford Place, Stockwell, south London.  One of the women, aged 30, is believed to have spent her entire life as a slave. The other two women rescued were a 57 year old Irish woman and a 69 year old Malaysian woman.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said only that they had arrested two suspects, and that the male suspect had met the alleged victims via a shared political ideology.

Heritage and Destiny has learned that this ideology was a Maoist variant of Marxist-Leninism, and that this extraordinary case revolves around the leaders of a 1970s political sect that inspired the political comedy Citizen Smith.

In April 1977 the diary column in The Times entertained its readers with reports about the Workers’ Institute of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-Tung Thought, which had converted a shop in Acre Lane, Brixton, into a “workers’ centre” complete with library and bookshop.  The institute’s weekly journal – South London Workers’ Bulletin – proudly proclaimed that “this new development in Britain has taken the British fascist state by storm”.

The British state had in fact barely registered the group’s existence, but somewhere in the darkest recesses of Special Branch and MI5, a file had been opened which is now being hastily dusted down, in readiness for what seems likely to be a sensational criminal trial some time in 2014.

The file no doubt begins with Aravindan Balakrishnan, who Heritage and Destiny can reveal is the male suspect in this week’s “slavery” case. In the summer of 1974 Balakrishnan (known to his friends as Comrade Bala) split from what was then the UK’s leading Maoist group, the Communist Party of England (Marxist-Leninist), having previously been a member of the party’s national executive and central committee. In May 1973 the CPE (M-L) had been responsible for a violent attack on Professor Hans Eysenck before a lecture at the London School of Economics.  The brave anti-fascists punched and kicked Prof. Eysenck because they viewed his research on race, heredity and intelligence as “racist”.

Comrade Bala set up the Brixton institute, taking with him a small faction of Maoist fanatics. His group was among several analysed in a 1978 doctoral thesis by a researcher at University College London, who described the institute as “the clearest case of far-left millenarianism which I have encountered, …a tiny Maoist sect with about 25 members, located in the Brixton area. …In 1977, they confidently predicted that the world would be liberated from capitalist oppression by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army before the end of the year.”

The UCL researcher found that the institute had all the trappings of a political cult:

“The central core of the Workers’ Institute is a ‘communist collective’, numbering about thirteen people, who live at the Mao Xedong Memorial Centre in Brixton. Those who do not live in the Centre live in co-resident groups in the vicinity and meet with the residents every day at the Centre, which is the focus for the activity of the whole group. Non-residents are expected to contribute their earnings, surplus to subsistence requirements, to the work of the organisation.

“…All of these activities are oriented towards the main political task of the group, which is seen as ‘building a stable revolutionary base in and around Brixton’.  This part of London was chosen for the Institute’s location, ‘because it is the worst place in the world’.

“Political cooperation with other groups is rejected. The Institute is extraordinarily hostile to other left-wing organisations, most of which they see as agents provocateurs for the state. …Similarly, work in the trade unions is rejected by the Institute because all established Labour movement structures are simply ‘organs of fascism’.

“…The Workers’ Institute claims an absolute monopoly of truth as the only correct upholder of the line of the Communist Party of China in the Imperialist Heartlands.  The members are required to witness to their beliefs at all times.  They talk of little else and are rarely to be seen without their prominent Mao badges.”

Among Balakrishnan’s supporters was his wife, known as Comrade Chanda. Between them they were arrested at least eight times during the 1970s. A typical example of the group’s rhetoric came after an incident at Brixton prison in February 1976 when Comrades Bala and Chanda were being visited by two fellow Brixton Maoists. As they put it (and no I’m really not making this up):

“A surprise attack was made on Comrades Brome and Najeeb by some prison wardens who pounced on them and violently assaulted them inside the Brixton Prison compound. Both their spectacles were smashed and their faces were covered with bloody bruises. The fascist prison wardens bared their anti-communist fangs further by tearing off a badge of Chairman Mao from Comrade Najeeb’s coat! These fascist hoodlums revealed only too clearly that they were acting on the direct instructions of the panic stricken British fascist state when they turned truth upside down and hastily charged our comrades with assaulting them!”

Sadly Comrade Brome didn’t stay a hero for long: soon after Comrade Bala’s release from prison he expelled the Trinidad-born Brome and two of his friends.

Eventually the Brixton centre was closed down following a police raid in March 1978, when Comrades Bala and Chanda were charged with assaulting the police and sentenced to six months and three months respectively. By the time of the Brixton riots in 1981, their group had “gone underground”, where it remained until this month’s arrests.

H&D cannot comment further about the latest slavery case, pending next year’s trial, but we would simply ask readers to consider: would the leaders of a nationalist faction have got away with imprisoning women for thirty years and treating them as slaves?  What else has the British far left been getting away with for all these years?

Labour leader sacks black shadow minister in immigration row

Diane Abbott (centre) as one of the five candidates for Labour leader in 2010. She has now been sacked by the winner of that contest, Ed Miliband (second left).

Labour leader Ed Miliband (who according to opinion polls is likely to be the next British prime minister) has sacked his party’s most prominent black face, Diane Abbott.

Ms Abbott has responded by denouncing her party’s immigration policy:

I have long despaired of the downward spiral of Labour’s rhetoric on immigration. For instance we should have come out against the ‘immigrants go home’ van far more quickly and more firmly than we did. Unfortunately the people around Miliband are terrified by the polling on immigration and have convinced him that we have to move right on the issue. My settled view is that there no votes for the Labour party in pandering to anti-immigrant sentiment.

The irony of Mr Miliband’s attempts to develop a populist immigration policy will not be lost on Heritage and Destiny readers, though readers of the Daily Mail might be more confused!  Last week the Mail caused nationwide controversy by attacking the Labour leader’s Marxist father Ralph Miliband as anti-British.  They might have done better to focus their exposé on the future PM’s grandfather Sam Miliband, who really was a pro-Soviet traitor, acting as an agent for Trotsky’s invading Red Army and as a consequence having to flee his native Poland.

Heritage and Destiny examined the Miliband family’s background as Marxist immigrants in this online article three years ago.

Diane Abbott’s main agenda is probably now to build a campaign to become Labour candidate for Mayor of London in 2016.  As a consequence of our capital city’s ethnic transformation, it is now very likely that the Labour candidate will be non-white.  Former Ken Livingstone aide Atma Singh has already shown an interest, though he has no chance of winning (partly because of his far left background, partly because Sikhs are too small an ethnic voting block).  The party leadership might favour Sadiq Khan, a Pakistani Muslim lawyer who is presently Shadow Lord Chancellor in Miliband’s frontbench team.  A potential Afro-Caribbean rival to Diane Abbott is David Lammy, briefly a junior minister in Gordon Brown’s government, whose astounding erudition was exemplified by his hilarious error during the recent papal election.  While the half-Nigerian Chuka Umunna might have the best chance of winning, but probably has his eye on a bigger prize as a possible future Labour leader.

Rising talent in Ed Miliband’s Labour Party (left to right): Chuka Umunna, half-Nigerian Shadow Business Secretary; Louise Baldock, bisexual activist, Liverpool councillor, and likely next MP for Stockton South; Luciana Berger, former Director of Labour Friends of Israel, newly promoted to Shadow Public Health Minister in place of the sacked Diane Abbott.

Speaking of Mr Umunna (who on the British side of his family is the grandson of wartime MI5 interrogator and postwar judge Sir Helenus ‘Buster’ Milmo), his former girlfriend Luciana Berger was one of the winners in the Labour reshuffle, promoted to take the sacked Diane Abbott’s place as shadow public health minister.

Ms Berger is the former Director of Labour Friends of Israel. Her great-uncle was Manny Shinwell, who was a loyal friend of Zionist terror groups even while serving as Secretary of State for War in the 1940s.  Inevitably he was rewarded by a peerage, living to the age of 101 as Lord Shinwell of Easington.
