Thank You To The Police

Hi Everyone

Two days to go to the UK Election and I want to say a huge thank you to the armed police on our streets, maintaining our way of life. They are truly ‘Britain’s finest’ and make me feel so safe.

However, the media is being unfair to keep saying that the attackers at London Bridge were known to police.  Even their own families did not know what was happening, as in the Libyan father of the Manchester attacker, who initially said that it could not be his son. I am not repeating his name; it is too shameful  to remember.

Theresa May has done a fabulous job talking to people on the ground and answering their issues. In retrospect it will be seen as a phenomenal achievement in such a short time.  In hindsight, she was right to avoid the television debate on 31st May, which she could see descending into farce.  Besides seven against one is unfair odds and having to constantly justify herself would indeed have been a waste of time.

I have made that most personal of all decisions and I want to say to all women: it is imperative that we vote, as the evil people in our country want Sharia law. I know that our security services and agencies protecting us, will come through with honour.

I wish you well.

What the Extremists Don’t Understand – London 2017

Hello

The solidity of support from around the world must be frustrating for extremists.  They have been brought up to believe that destruction causes disunity, when the opposite is true.

I was initially concerned that Mr Trump should make comments on our political system, but actually what he said, is right.

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people,” Trump wrote on Sunday morning. “If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.” (credit David Morgan, Reuters)

Political correctness is seen as weakness by extremists and so is giving them housing and a free life.  It is a kick in the teeth for our hospitality and further claims for political asylum should be regarded with caution.  Employ more Civil Servants.

Public service job cuts came when David Cameron and Nick Clegg entered office.  Having been insulted by a senior Civil Servant ten years before, they took revenge and aimed to cut 100,000 jobs. Unfortunately, they decimated the safety net that everyone could depend upon during times of stress. Resentment led to a way into the Civil Service by sleeper cells. Hard to believe? Try reporting an extremist.

President Trump’s comment about stopping the terror “spreading to our (US) shores” shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how extremists work. They live insidiously in a country and await instruction, so let us please learn from history.  As long ago as World War II, we had protection from the Home Guard, widely ridiculed, yet very effective against a perceived threat.

A global response committee is in place.  In the UK, we need our Civil Servants back.   Could someone please replace them?  Many public services are stretched and too many good people are on the dole.

A Muslim has suggested before in media reports that they must ‘have difficult conversations’ with people about possible extremism.  We are currently past talking.  If a political party takes action against all threats, it will be busy till Christmas. Best leave it to ‘Britain’s finest’, the police, security services and agencies working behind the scenes.

It seems like an afterthought, which it is not.  I am almost sure we gave our condolences to Kabul, Afghanistan after a car bomb targeted Embassies on 31st May. (They have their own insidious battle against the Joyless Ones, aka the Taliban.)  Bombs have the same effect as suicide bombers have around the world.  They don’t work. Their best communicators need to be there and not former politicians, well-meaning if misguided.

PS  I have just realised that London Bridge Tube station was involved.  It is a transport hub, yet for me, it is  near the headquarters of a charity where I worked. I have walked in the area a dozen times and marvelled at the unfamiliar foods in the market.   No-one makes eye contact and I am the only white person for miles, yet I smile as I walk.
