Long-feared #Tory attack on your #humanrights to be unveiled TODAY

Dominic Raab: this flag-waving fascist (have you read Britannia Unchained at all?) is planning to strip you of your human rights. You probably know somebody who voted for it. Make sure you tell them how badly they will be affected!

What a nasty Christmas present!

(And how do you feel about the fact that we were kept from knowing this was about to happen until the very day?)

You can tell that a government is about to attack you when its spokespeople say forthcoming changes are “common sense”.

Dominic Raab is a long-term opponent of human rights for people who aren’t high-ranking Tories and his proposals to “reform” the Human Rights Act into a “Bill of Rights”, that allows you to do only what he and his corruption-raddled mates say, is a reflection of that.

The BBC is frantically trying to cushion the blow by trying to convince us that the changes are merely part of the Tories’ ongoing racist agenda:

The government proposes changing the law to introduce specific circumstances in which a foreign national offender could not claim a right to family life in the UK to challenge their deportation.

The plans do not include proposals that would change the law concerning the potential return to other countries of migrants arriving in dinghies.

Mr Raab said: “Our plans for a bill of rights will strengthen typically British rights like freedom of speech and trial by jury, while preventing abuses of the system and adding a healthy dose of common sense.”

But you can be sure that the proposals include a lot more than simply preventing abuse of the Human Rights Act by foreign-born criminals that no court has ever allowed to happen (to our knowledge).

(Nor will it be limited to this plus a confused attack on the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg that doesn’t change a system currently in place.)

And how is he protecting our right to free speech when his buddy (and co-author of Britannia Unchained) Priti Patel is criminalising protest?

No – as I stated only last month, Raab’s plan isn’t to take away the Right to Family Life from criminals who didn’t have it anyway – he’s taking the Right to Family Life away from everybody – and that includes you.

Here’s a lawyer to explain:

According to the BBC, Raab’s proposals do not constitute a departure from the European Convention (but of course the devil’s in the detail).

In other words, this is yet another iteration of the tactic the Tories have stolen back from Nazi Germany: divide and rule. By pretending to be attacking Johnny Foreigner, they get away with imposing tight restrictions on you – and as they strip you of your freedoms, you greet them with rapturous applause.

That’s if you’re a stupid racist, of course.

There’s no point in trying to stop it, by the way. As I said in November, the Tories have a massive Parliamentary majority which means they’ll push through this attack on you, no matter how much you try to complain about it now.

The time to complain was November and December 2019, in the run-up to that year’s general election, but people were too busy banging on about Boris Johnson “getting Brexit done” (how did that turn out, again?) and the lies about Jeremy Corbyn. I hope you weren’t part of that.

And Labour under Keir Starmer will not oppose the changes because he supports any plan to strip you of your rights to the hilt. He’s an Establishment man and a former Director of Public Prosecutions; of course he does.

I await the details with trepidation as I fear they will confirm what I have been saying since the Tories first announced their intention to restrict us with a Bill of Rights, back in 2014.

Your only course of action is simple: to educate your Tory friends about the danger they have created for all of us and beg them never to do anything as stupid as vote Tory again.

I doubt many will take up this challenge. Looking at the number of people who can’t even bear to share Tory-critical articles on the social media for fear of a bit of talkback, it seems most of them are well and truly silenced by the bullies.

But hope springs eternal.

Tory cabinet is more ethnically-diverse than Keir Starmer’s Labour. Why’s that, do you think?

All in it together: Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer are each as racist as the other – but Johnson is better at hiding it than Starmer, who simply isn’t intelligent enough.

After Keir Starmer’s shadow cabinet reshuffle on Monday, this is devastatingly revealing:

The answer is obvious: Starmer is a racist.

This Writer has been saying it for months now – practically since Sir Slimy got into office.

He’s an anti-Semite because he expels left-wing Jews from the party for not being Zionists.

He’s an Islamophobe because he has allowed Islamophobia to grow in the grassroots party and has welcomed high-profile Islamophobes back to it.

He’s also a sexist – look at his recent ill-treatment of people like Zarah Sultana. Yes, he has women on his front bench, but that doesn’t excuse his behaviour.

And let’s all remember the level of diversity that former leader Jeremy Corbyn achieved:

Some people would ask you to believe that Jeremy Corbyn is the racist, not Starmer.

As my own rules for This Site deny me the vocabulary to describe what I would say to such people, feel free to respond as you feel appropriate.

Starmer proudly announces what his Labour stands for: racism, apartheid and prejudice

Keir Starmer: from his speech, he’d love to don a uniform and shoot anybody who isn’t an Israel-supporting Zionist.

What a speech. If Labour Party grassroots members weren’t scrambling to find a way to oust Keir Starmer as leader before, This Writer certainly hopes that’s what they are doing now.

Starmer made his alarming revelations at a speech to Labour Friends of Israel, where he and other party bigwigs who should have known better shared a platform with Tzipi Hotovely, the Israeli Ambassador best-known for being a murderous, genocidal racist.

After listening to the speech, some might say it was a case of like attracting like.

I’m not even going to talk about it myself. I don’t need to. All I need to do is highlight some of the reactions.

That was the message Starmer was transmitting in his speech.

He opposes universal human rights. He opposes self-determination for persecuted people – in particular, Palestinians. He stands alongside apartheid Israel in opposing international law.

He supports racism – particularly anti-Palestinian racism, but also racism against black people, other people of colour, and Muslims. He supports apartheid. He supports the Zionist doctrine of racial supremacy over others. He supports ethnic cleansing – especially of Palestinians from their own homeland, wrongly seized from them by apartheid Israel. He supports war crimes. He supports genocide.

Historically, Labour has supported the things Starmer opposes, and opposed those that he supports. Labour members have fought – literally, in some cases – to prevent them from taking hold.

Those of us who are here today have a duty to the memory of those who went before, never to let the likes of Starmer pervert their dream of the future into the nightmarish distopia he feverishly desires.

So, Labour members, I ask again: what are you doing about it?

Do these politicians know their comments on Riley-related Big Issue boycott ARE NOT TRUE?

Ian Austin: Did the Mail mislead him into believing that people who oppose Rachel Riley’s claims about anti-Semitism want to penalise the homeless?

Unlikely though it seems, This Writer is going to be charitable to two hard-right political headbangers.

Former Labour MP, now Lord Ian Austin has said people who said they would boycott The Big Issue after it published a one-sided article about Rachel Riley and anti-Semitism in the Labour Party were “a complete disgrace.

“They would rather homeless people lose out and go hungry because The Big Issue contains an interview with Rachel Riley, who they hate because she campaigned against racism.”

Neil Coyle: Does he care that he made a false claim when he said people are boycotting The Big Issue because it is exposing racism?

And current Labour MP Neil Coyle said: “Anyone suggesting we don’t buy The Big Issue and ignore homeless people because it is also exposing racism reveals quite how these people sank Labour and why they must never again be trusted to be anything other than a factional cult.”

As anybody who read This Site’s article about the row last Wednesday will know, their comments are shocking misrepresentations of the facts.

Nobody who commented on the Riley article suggested that homeless people should be harmed because of The Big Issue‘s descent into fake news.

You can read a few of the reasons Riley’s opinions were not supported by the facts in the Vox Political piece, so we won’t rehash old ground by re-examining what she calls campaigning against racism and why it is more likely to be political factionalism.

Concerns that a boycott would cause problems for homeless Big Issue sellers were raised by Shaun Lawson – one of the very people Riley has accused as part of her so-called campaign against racism.

That isn’t mentioned in the Mail article.

Nor are any of the comments in response. Let’s redress the balance here:

Giving money direct to the seller isn’t a perfect solution because The Big Issue relies on the seller buying the copies they pass on to the public – at half cover price.

But refusing to take the magazine while handing over the cash makes a strong statement – especially if the sellers hand all their unsold copies back to the publisher.

As you can see, nobody who called for the Riley issue of The Big Issue to be boycotted did it to harm the homeless sellers, or to attack a campaign against racism – because they do not accept that Riley does anything of the sort.

My question is: did the Mail‘s reporter make this clear to these politicians before they made their highly contentious and prejudiced statements?

If so, then This Writer is happy to forgive them after they publish a full retraction.

If not, then anybody who is not already shunning these people is encouraged to do so.

These Tory MPs aren’t even hiding their racism any more

James Gray: warned about racism

This Writer doesn’t approve of offensive language but Super Tanskiii, below, hits it on the head with this one:

It would be funny if it wasn’t about racism because it’s a Tory undermining his own party’s ministers.

As it is, though, it seems James Gray really should be forced out of his role as St John Ambulance “commander of charity” after – at a reception to honour that charity on September 8 – confusing then-Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi and Health Secretary Sajid Javid, and then (allegedly) saying, “They all look the same to me.”

Whether he said those last words or not, it seems St John Ambulance chiefs made it clear to him that the organisation does not tolerate racism at all – and that he has been asked to stand down from all activity related to the charity.

Typically, the racist Tory Party let him off with a warning.

But what interests me is the fact that Labour leader Keir Starmer was among the guests at the event, and he said nothing about the incident at the time.

Priti Patel is pure evil

Devil woman: look at the bared teeth and the sidelong stare. She knows she’s in the wrong – and she loves it.

Look at the body language in this clip of Priti Patel lying to the Tory faithful that refugees have no reason to come to the UK from France.

She knew she was lying. The people she was attacking have many reasons to come to this country – all of which are entirely reasonable…

… and entirely legal. You’ll notice that she doesn’t try to say that it is against the law for refugees to come here.

No – she is imposing the measures she announced because she is a racist who wants to cause the maximum amount of harm to these foreigners.

And that includes death.

She knows turning back the boats may lead to the deaths of people in them. Either she doesn’t care or – worse – she revels in the idea.

Watch her:

Of course, her racism is entirely misplaced and hypocritical.

How can she bemoan the arrival of foreigners when the UK has already – home-grown – people as dangerous – as psychotic – as her?

Is this another nail in the coffin of Keir Starmer’s racist Labour?

Resigned: Marsha de Cordova.

It has emerged that a second black female Labour MP has resigned from Keir Starmer’s shadow cabinet because he won’t support plans for a new law to tackle racial injustice.

Marsha de Cordova follows Dawn Butler, who quit as Shadow Secretary for Women and Equalities because she would not sign up to the pledges demanded of the Labour Party by the Tory-run Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Sources have told Voice Online that the departure was prompted by serious differences with the party leadership:

Friends say Starmer’s inner cabal sidelined her efforts to develop plans for a new law to tackle racial injustice.

Sources said that efforts to set up a taskforce of experts to design progressive race equality policy were held back over concerns this might upset Red Wall voters, and that Starmer had resisted pleas to make a speech setting out his vision to black communities.

Associates of the Battersea MP claim that the party failed to put her on a single ‘media round’ during 17 months in the job, and that she was offered just five minutes speaking time at Labour’s annual conference, which takes place next week.

The revelations come amid growing pressure for the release of a report into alleged racism of party officials against Butler and fellow MPs Diane Abbott and Clive Lewis.

That would be the Forde report – which has been allegedly delayed to await the report of an Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) inquiry into personal data protection breaches.

It seems Keir Starmer and his cronies are hoping that the ICO will say the information examined by Martin Forde QC should not have been available for other people to examine and that any racist comments those messages contained are exempt from discussion.

But the fact is that we do know about them, and we also know that Labour Party officers should not have been passing such comments about party representatives.

If he tries to sweep them under the carpet, Keir Starmer will be supporting the racism they contain.

The Labour leadership is trying to wallpaper over its own racism by announcing that a new annual Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic conference for members will start next year along with a new internal organisation to represent all BAME members.

That seems similar to Young Labour, which also had an annual conference for members – until this year, when Starmer’s unelected general secretary, David Evans, cancelled it in defiance of the party’s own constitution.

It is believed that the reason for the cancellation was Young Labour’s determination to host an event supporting Palestinian liberation from the tyranny of Israel. It would run against the official Labour Party line, which is that the Israeli government must be held above criticism at all times, no matter how many atrocities it commits against people of another ethnic group.

Racism again.

Normalising racism: Abbott attacked for highlighting Farage’s hypocrisy over Raducanu

Raducanu: she won the US Open so the racists in UK politics are happy to let this Romanian-heritage teenager be British. What would they have called her if she had lost?

The BBC really is contemptible these days.

Its daily Politics Live programme has just taken time out to criticise Diane Abbott for making a perfectly reasonable point.

After Emma Raducanu won the US Open Ladies Singles tennis final, Nigel Farage was among the many who praised her up.

But arch Brexiter Farage, while campaigning for the UK to leave the European Union, had previously stated that he would not want a Romanian living next door to him.

Ms Raducanu’s heritage is Romanian.

So Ms Abbott was absolutely right to make this point:

And she’s not the only one pointing out the hypocrisy:

The verdict on Politics Live?

Led by host Jo Coburn, guests united to say that Farage’s words were in the past and that it is wrong to use a sporting even to score political points.

So it’s fine for politicians like Boris Johnson (and, indeed, Farage) to make hay when sportspeople representing the UK do well – no matter that they personally have expressed racist views that constitute abuse against individuals among those sportspeople in the past?

I don’t think so!

The whole disgrace was encapsulated in a tweet before Ms Raducanu’s victory (that I didn’t save, sadly).

It said that, depending on the result, the Daily Mail would tell us whether she was British or not.

And it’s a good point.

Would these creepy politicians be quite so keen to let bygones be bygones if Ms Raducanu had not won?

The social care system is being ruined by profiteers [Also in the news]

This window-writing may have been by a child in care, but it might equally have been written by an adult – or by one of the people employed to care for either of them.

The demand for profit is causing huge harm to the private care system, it has been claimed.

Investor returns have become more important than quality care and workers’ pay, according to research.

Private equity, hedge funds and real estate investment trusts have brought in predatory financial techniques, justified in the name of enticing capital into a sector that the government has persistently failed to adequately fund.

Boris Johnson promised to overhaul the system, more than two years ago. He has yet to lift a finger.

That’s unless you include his government’s Covid-19 strategy that killed – what – 30,000 care home residents, at least?

Also in the news:

Charities are warning that foodbank use will rocket if the Universal Credit cut goes ahead

But the Tories have been pushing more and more people into food poverty. It is their policy.

So why would they care?

Iain Duncan Smith wants civil servants to go back to working in the office

The former Tory leader thinks it’s necessary “because there’s an ecosystem around them made up of cafes, restaurants bars, even theatres and other areas that give people jobs and without people back in their offices, going out for sandwiches, you know, coffees, etcetera that ecosystem will collapse and people will lose their jobs”.

Business chief asks Johnson to save firms from the damage done by Brexit – and goes unanswered

In response, Richard Murphy of Tax Research UK has asked why business leaders are putting up with Johnson.

A reader responded that they are probably waiting for the Tories to further reduce workers rights and financial reporting standards, while another pointed out that Johnson made his position clear three years ago when he said, “F*ck business.”

Abbott calls for end to Patel’s cruel mass deportation flights

The fourth mass deportation flight to Jamaica since the Windrush Scandal will leave the UK today (August 11), showing that Home Secretary Priti Patel and her boss Boris Johnson have learned nothing from it.

The excuse is that the deportees are all dangerous criminals – except they aren’t, according to Labour’s Diane Abbott. And they have served the sentence for their crime.

In fact, they are being subjected to double jeopardy, which should be illegal in UK law – penalising people twice for the same crime. It is imposed because the deportees are not white.

RNLI donations INCREASE in the face of negative comments by racists

Everything before the ‘but’ is meaningless: Nigel Farage has been foiled in his attack on the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, as has some far-right kid on Twitter.

Congratulations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which has enjoyed a massive increase in donations after racists in the media criticised it for rescuing refugees.

Don’t believe the BBC’s coverage, that claimed the £200,000 it received in donations in 24 hours (it usually gets £7K in that period) was because it posted “rescue footage” on social media.

This was a reaction against loudmouths like Nigel Farage (are you happy now your Brexit has emptied our supermarket shelves, Nigel?) who said on far-right propaganda purveyor GB News that the lifeboats were now a “migrant taxi service”.

And it was a reaction against swivel-eyed boy-fascist Darren Grimes, who was schooled by Julia Hartley-Brewer, of all people, over his daft claims about the legendary life-saving organisation:

“I find lifeboat charity RNLI’s rescue missions in the Channel to be deeply irresponsible,” tweeted the callow youth.

“If you’re sure that getting into an unseaworthy vessel will see you carried across the Channel by trained professionals, why wouldn’t you?”

Even Hartley-Doodah thought this was too much – and corrected him like the errant child he is: “No, Darren, the RNLI are there to save lives – of anyone and everyone in need. It doesn’t matter who they are or why they are there.”

I’m going to go out on a limb and call these negative comments by Farage and Grimes out as racism.

They would rather see people – of colour – escaping violence and persecution in their home countries drown than give them a moment’s safe haven in a safe country. That screams “racism” to me and it is an attitude of which anybody should be ashamed.

I mean all the rest of us as well – we shame ourselves that these attitudes are even tolerated in the UK, let alone putting them on our media in an attempt to whip up support.

Thank goodness it backfired. It turned out to be one of the rare occasions when right-wing aggression leads to a positive outcome.

The Farages and Grimeses of this country have been foiled and the RNLI is much better-off as a result of their ignorant interference.

What a great result!
