Amber Rudd speech that echoed Mein Kampf and the BNP recorded as hate crime – but police won’t investigate

We are told time and time again that MPs are not exempt from criminal investigations because of their position – but time and time again when they are accused, the police do nothing.

Perhaps our law officers need to be reminded of a few salient facts:

Not only did Amber Rudd actually use the words “British jobs for British workers” – a BNP slogan from years ago, as you can see in the image above…

Her demand that companies declare the number of migrant workers they employ appears to be a direct lift from Adolf Hitler’s infamous book, Mein Kampf.

That demand was quietly dropped soon afterwards – most probably because it was very swiftly revealed that Ms Rudd cannot provide details of the number of foreign nationals working at the Home Office. So why should anybody else have to?

Her speech at the Conservative Party Conference last year so alarmed Oxford University physics professor Joshua Silver, he complained to the police.

His complaint was dealt with by West Midlands police, who have now written back to Professor Silver saying they will not be investigating Rudd’s speech as a hate crime.

But rules endorsed by Ms Rudd state that all complaints of hate incidents must be recorded, so it has been put down as a “non-crime hate incident”.

How proud Amber Rudd must be, to have her first performance at Tory Conference as Home Secretary recorded in history as hate speech.

The Home Office has tried to play down the facts with a statement, but you could drive one of Theresa May’s so-called ‘racist’ vans (the ones urging illegal immigrants to “go home”) through the holes in it.

“This was not a hate crime,” said a spokesperson. “The home secretary has been crystal clear that hatred has absolutely no place in a Britain that works for everyone.”

But Britain very clearly doesn’t work for everyone, as the meltdown in the English NHS makes perfectly clear. That’s not saying she thinks hatred does have a place in the UK as it stands – but it certainly doesn’t exonerate her.

“She’s made countering hate one of her key priorities; indeed, one of the first public interventions she made was to launch the hate crime action plan.”

Is this statement saying she fell foul of her own plan, then? How stupid can these Tory ministers be? And who, in their right mind, would vote Conservative again?

A speech about foreign workers given by the home secretary, Amber Rudd, at the Tory party conference in October has been officially recorded as a hate incident, police have confirmed.

Rudd said in her speech that she wanted to make it harder for British companies to employ migrants and to ensure foreign workers “were not taking jobs British workers could do”.

The speech was followed by a background briefing by an aide who suggested firms could be required to publish lists of foreign workers. Rudd herself confirmed the next day that such lists were an option, but the idea was quickly dropped.

    Are the police one sided and two speed in their operations? Has anything happened with regard to the police investigations of electoral funding issues ref the Cons? Certainly they were quick kicking Labour down and publically exposing them but slow mo with regard to the Cons electoral finance issues raised.

    “…who, in their right mind, would vote Conservative again?” I’ve been asking this question, for many years; people still do, however.

    seem to remember before WW2 the tory grandees were much impressed with Hitler. Lord Rothermere being a very well known example (proprietor of Daily Mail). Things obviously havent improved much
