Corbyn is right: the war on terror isn’t working – but we should also drain the swamp

Corbyn - War on Terror speech

Amid predictable fake outrage from his Conservative opponents, Jeremy Corbyn – no friend of H&D! – has dared to tell the truth.  As election campaigning resumed today (following several days hiatus due to the terrorist bombing of a Manchester concert hall) the Labour leader said: “We must be brave enough to admit the war on terror is simply not working. We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism.”

It seems likely that the Manchester atrocity was carried out by a suicide bomber of Libyan origin, linked to that country’s version of Islamic State. If so, then it emanates from a truly Orwellian swamp. British governments once allied themselves with the earlier local version of IS – the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group – in terrorist and assassination plots against that country’s former dictator Col. Gaddafi.

Then under Tony Blair we changed tack, and delivered our former Islamist allies to Libyan torturers collaborating in a worldwide ‘war on terror’.  Sir Mark Allen (former MI6 counterterrorism director) might still face criminal charges over his role in the kidnapping and torture of LIFG leader Abdul Hakim Belhaj, though the relevant ministers including Jack Straw have typically dodged their responsibility.

In 2011 under David Cameron there was another policy lurch: Libya’s Islamists (or at least some of them) became our allies again in the campaign to oust Gaddafi.  And now in the resultant post-Gaddafi chaos they are back to being the enemy.

All this would be mad enough: what makes it really crazy is that among the 57 varieties of alien immigrant thronging British cities are a large community of Libyans with personal and family ties to these very characters who were sometimes our allies, while at other times consigned to the torture chamber.

Foreign and defence policy has never had much space for morality.  One response to the slaughter of British children in Manchester (the opposite of Corbyn’s policy) might be to carry out a reciprocal slaughter in Libya, targeting the extended families and support networks of IS.

But – setting moral questions entirely aside – H&D readers should recognise that such a policy (whether aiming at deterrence or merely revenge) requires precisely targeted and pitiless brutality. In their prime the likes of Gaddafi or Syria’s Hafez al-Assad were capable of that – hence their regimes survived.  Does anyone really believe that Britain has the will (let alone the local knowledge) to follow such a policy to its logical conclusion, to take whatever the terrorists throw back at us and throw back more of the same, until eventually we supposedly crush them?

It’s not going to happen.

So we are left with the logic of Corbyn’s alternative. Some form of new deal with the Islamic world. We can only hope this would be less hypocritical then the deal with an earlier generation of bombers who targeted Manchester.  Among this week’s many tragic ironies is that the bomb that devastated Manchester city centre in 1996, planted just a few yards away from the scene of this week’s carnage, was the work of IRA godfathers armed by Col. Gaddafi, the bitter enemy of this week’s suicide bomber and his family.

No one was ever charged over that 1996 Manchester bombing – except a journalist and a police officer who dared to name the main suspect, the IRA’s Declan McCann (then of Crossmaglen, Co Armagh). McCann was spared arrest for political reasons and has since moved south to Castleblayney, Co Monaghan: he owns a property empire with his brother John. His IRA commanders went on to form part of Northern Ireland’s government and shake hands with the Queen.

 

Corbyn of course has his own dishonourable record of IRA apologetics. And though his approach to today’s failed war on terror makes sense, there’s one aspect that Corbyn and his ilk will never admit. Alongside a reassessment of foreign policy must come a draining of the multi-ethnic swamp. We should return the teeming non-British masses of our towns and cities back to their countries of origin.

UPDATE: On tonight’s Channel 4 News, Theresa May’s Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon fell into a well-laid journalistic trap when he condemned what he thought were Jeremy Corbyn’s words about the war on terror, only to find they were the words of his senior Cabinet colleague, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson!  A more sympathetic journalist in The Spectator had earlier today offered the Tories some wise strategic advice on how to handle this issue: they failed to take it – and as another Spectator columnist Rod Liddle puts it, this is turning into the worst Tory election campaign on record.

One-third of asylum claims come from illegal immigrants or visa overstayers

longtermmigration

The Home Office has officially admitted that one-third of all claims for political asylum are made by illegal immigrants or those who have stayed in the UK beyond their legal visa limit.

Rather than applying for asylum at the earliest opportunity – as one would expect from a genuine refugee – these people only raise the question of asylum when they have been apprehended by immigration officers, often while working illegally.

During the decade from 2004 to 2014, 231,100 asylum applications were received: of these, 83,912 were from people who had been apprehended by immigration staff, either as illegal entrants or as overstayers.

Surprisingly, almost one-quarter of these were nevertheless granted either asylum or an extended leave to remain.

Even Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee, admitted to The Times:

“The very principle of seeking asylum is that you feel persecuted at the time you arrive, not saying you feel persecuted after arriving illegally or for different reasons and then remaining in the country until you are apprehended.”

entryvisas

Official figures for 2015-2016 show that the largest number of UK entry visas granted during 2015-2016 were to visitors from China and India/Pakistan.  There were 92,715 visas granted to Chinese visitors, and 92,327 to India and Pakistan combined.  While there would be many legitimate Chinese tourists, students or business visitors among their total (which was a 22% increase on the previous year), one wonders about the 14,231 visas granted to Nigerians (though this was a 25% decrease on the previous year, partly because of a crackdown on illegals).

By contrast far smaller numbers of visas (whether for tourism, study or work) were granted to travellers from White countries: 21,605 to Australians; 34,276 to visitors from the USA;

In 2014 an undercover BBC investigation revealed widespread abuse of the student visa system.

Latest immigration madness: Government won’t let them leave!

immigrant queueJust when you thought you’d heard it all – the immigration circus produces yet another mad twist in the tale.

Hundreds of illegal Indian immigrants living close to the London Olympic site at Stratford are desperate to return home as they have no job and no money, having been ripped off by the immigration mafia who brought them here in the first place.  The recession means that for many such economic migrants there is no hope.  Some can work the system; some can turn to crime; some can take jobs from indigenous English men and women through their willingness to be exploited as cheap labour – which is one reason why our political establishment were so keen to admit them in the first place.

Yet for many there is nothing – and they want to go home.  But they can’t – because they don’t have the right paperwork!

Like most illegal immigrants, they made sure they destroyed their foreign documents on arrival, so that they couldn’t easily be deported.  The UK authorities won’t send them back to India without proof that they are Indian; and the Indian authorities are dragging their feet in producing replacement paperwork.

Of course for the Indian authorities its good news that hundreds (indeed thousands) of their penniless legions are sleeping on the streets of London and other European capitals rather than in Mumbai.  But is this really the best that the British government can do: incapable even of deporting those illegal immigrants who are desperate to go home?

Hardeep Singh, one of these illegals, told The Sun this week:

“I have no work and cannot get any benefits, so I live on the streets. There are so many of us in the same situation. When David Cameron came in we thought he would do something because he wanted to get rid of illegal immigration, but he’s done nothing.”

The England First Party asks: if David Cameron won’t listen to the millions of Englishmen who are fed up with illegal immigration and the disastrous consequences of Britain’s multi-racial experiment, will he at least listen to Hardeep?

Immigration scandal continues

UKBorderAgencyIt was one of the worst scandals of the New Labour years: in 2006 Charles Clarke was sacked as Home Secretary after admitting that more than 1,000 foreign criminals in British jails had been released at the end of their prison sentences rather than being assessed for deportation.

Yet now in 2012 – two years into the Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition that promised to remedy these New Labour abuses – we find that this scandal has not been remedied.

The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee has today reported that of these 1,013 immigrant criminals, only 397 have been removed from our shores.  57 have proved impossible to trace and – most shocking of all – the remaining 559 have been allowed to remain in this country, either indefinitely or while their cases continue to be looked into!

The problem goes well beyond these thousand or so criminals from 2006.  Of more recent cases, only around two thirds of foreign prisoners released in 2011 have been deported, and there are another 2,670 dating back more than two years who have not yet been removed because they are still appealing. Around 120,000 immigration cases, according to the committee, have been written off because those involved can no longer be traced.  The asylum backlog still contains a further 20,000 unresolved cases.

As the parliamentary committee’s chairman concludes: “The reputation of the Home Office, and by extension, the UK Government, is being tarnished by the inability of the UK Border Agency (UKBA) to fulfil its basic functions. The foreign national prisoner issue and the asylum backlog were scandals which first broke in 2006, six years ago. UKBA appears unable to focus on its key task of tracking and removing illegal immigrants, overstayers or bogus students from the country.”

The England First Party would make a more fundamental criticism: the entire immigration racket should have been terminated long ago.  Our country has become a soft touch for any crook or scrounger who manages to cross the border.

The true face of cultural enrichment

markdugganLondon is ablaze as the multiracial chickens come home to roost for three generations of liberal politicians who systematically destroyed England’s capital.  The thugs looting and burning across the city’s ethnic enclaves may be prosecuted, though our police have long since regarded some of them as no go zones exempt from law and order.  Yet the people who must truly be held to account for 2011’s multicultural hell can only be removed by a political revolution.  Have our voters got the will to turf out Lib, Lab and Con?

Mark Duggan (pictured above left) was an unexceptional product of London’s black community – a typical target of Scotland Yard’s ‘Operation Trident’ which fights a losing battle against black gun crime, usually linked to drug dealing.  Last Thursday he was shot dead by armed policemen near Tottenham Hale station.  Duggan was carrying a gun at the time, and while present evidence suggests he didn’t get the chance to shoot back at the police, it seems likely that he was stopped on his way to carrying out a revenge killing, following the murder of his fellow gangster Kelvin Easton a few months ago.

The reason Duggan’s death has ignited a tinder box is twofold.  Initial violence in Tottenham was because the likes of Duggan and Easton are seen as “elders” of their community, which has no respect for civilised values – not least because over the last quarter-century the forces of “democracy” and “law” have taught such people that any level of ignorance, any depth of depravity, any scale of law breaking will utimately be tolerated for the sake of “respecting” an ethnic minority and building an “enriched” multicultural society.

Now the violence is spreading because other ethnic enclaves (so far predominantly black African and Afro-Caribbean ones) have picked up the message that rioting and looting might get them the chance of a free television and other goodies which they fear being denied as a result of the current financial crisis, which is leading to the curtailment of the benefit culture.

The tragedy is that for the time being British nationalist politics is paralysed, as the slow death of Nick Griffin’s BNP is delaying the emergence of a positive alternative.

As nationalists meet this month to plan a post-Griffin movement, the England First Party will be playing a central role in these developments.  We are determined that racial nationalism will not be diluted into an Islamophobic charade.  Events in London this week prove that the problem with multiculturalism is primarily racial, not religious.  Virtually none of the Tottenham rioters were Muslims, and even the terms used by North London’s gangsters, describing themselves as “elders”, reflect their Christian cultural roots in the Caribbean and Africa – which is where they should be invited to return as quickly as possible!

UPDATE – 8th August, 10 p.m.

The leaflet below was found today in Dalston – a famous scene of clashes between Jewish Communists and supporters of Sir Oswald Mosley many years ago, but now dominated by assorted black immigrants.  A blatantly criminal leaflet of this type would lead to an intense crackdown if produced by nationalists.  In this case it was clearly issued by anarchists and/or black gangsters – will there be any action against them?

Ethnic minorities to make up 20% of UK population by 2051

uk-immigration

New projections published today by Leeds University show that ethnic minorities will make up a fifth of the UK’s population by 2051, rising from 8% in 2001.

The researchers also predict that ethnic minority populations will expand especially rapidly in previously white and affluent areas.

The proportion of the UK population classified as “white British” will shrink to 67.1%.

Presenting the report Prof. Philip Rees said that “overall we can look forward to being not only a more diverse nation, but one that is far more spatially integrated than at present.”

While keen to welcome diversity, the Leeds academic team’s contempt for English identity is evident from their inability to spell the Lancashire boroughs Darwen and Hyndburn.

Labour’s secret plan to lure immigrants was borderline treason – and plain stupid

Was this author was too scared to accuse the Cultural Marxists running New Labour of outright treason? The info obtained by Migration Watch in their Freedom of Information request proves, not just treason, but attempted genocide of whites within the British Isles. Racial nationalists have been vindicated.

Telegraph Blogs, 10 Feb 2010: Incredible. I am stunned. Back in October Andrew Neather, a former Labour party speechwriter, let the cat out the bag when he said that the Government had encouraged immigration “to rub the Right’s nose in diversity”. But while Neather quickly backtracked, documents now released under the Freedom of Information Act suggest that he was telling the truth. Rather than being the result only of incompetence or a short-term economic measure to reduce inflation, Labour’s policy of runaway immigration was a deliberate and cynical attempt to change the face of British society.

The document released yesterday suggested that Labour originally pursued a different direction. It was published under the title “Migration: an economic and social analysis” but the removal of significant extracts suggested that officials or ministers were nervous over references to “social objectives”.

The original paper called for the need of a new framework for thinking about migration policy but the concluding phrase — “if we are to maximise the contribution of migration to the Government’s economic and social objectives” — was edited out.

Labour’s ‘secret plan’ to lure migrants

 The Government has been accused of pursuing a secret policy of encouraging mass immigration for its own political ends. (Voting trends indicate that migrants and their descendants are much more likely to vote Labour.)

 DAILY TELEGRAPH, 9 Feb 2010: The release of a previously unseen document suggested that Labour’s migration policy over the past decade had been aimed not just at meeting the country’s economic needs, but also the Government’s “social objectives”.

The paper said migration would “enhance economic growth” and made clear that trying to halt or reverse it could be “economically damaging”. But it also stated that immigration had general “benefits” and that a new policy framework was needed to “maximise” the contribution of migration to the Government’s wider social aims.

The Government has always denied that social engineering played a part in its migration policy.

However, the paper, which was written in 2000 at a time when immigration began to increase dramatically, said controls were contrary to its policy objectives and could lead to “social exclusion”.

EU plans flights to deport illegal immigrants

The European Union is drawing up plans to charter its own flights to return illegal immigrants to their home countries.

DAILY TELEGRAPH, 29 Oct 2009: Under the plan, individual member states would be able to claim seats on planes for rejected asylum seekers they wish to remove. The EU flights would then make multiple stops in different countries to collect deportees before flying on to their country of origin.

The plan for a common EU approach to repatriation flights is set to be approved by an EU summit in Brussels on Friday. A document due to be debated at the summit shows that Frontex, the EU’s external border agency, would fund and operate the shared flights.

Britain is not a full member of Frontex, but helps fund the Warsaw-based agency and UK borders agency staff have been seconded to work for it.

British-chartered plane takes Afghan migrants home

Some progress being made, at least…

GUARDIAN, 21Oct09: Flight takes off from Paris as joint immigration crackdown prompts anger in France.

A British-chartered plane took off from Paris today, returning Afghan migrants to their home country in a joint immigration crackdown which has prompted criticism in France.

The plane took off from Charles de Gaulle airport carrying three Afghan men “back to their country of origin”, France’s immigration minister, Eric Besson, told Europe 1 radio, according to Reuters. Britain had chartered the plane, he added.
