I find myself becoming more
and more fearful of the establishment parties as you are turning this country
into a place that I no longer feel at home in, or feel a part of.
I watch you all in parliament, and no, not just the two leaders but every politician that I see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other and
acting like children (and if you were my children I would be ashamed of you all ... what an example to set!)
Although you would like us all to believe that you are putting the needs of this country at the forefront, none of you are doing that, you seem more interested in "one-up-manship ", in scoring off each other, & denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country & its people.
It seems to be all about YOU as individuals, and not about what you can DO for this country.
It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize as the place, I always thought, was the best place in the world to be. But no longer. You are not listening to the people of this country! I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country, (and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most countries ... REALLY?)
And yet the gap is widening between the "haves" and the "have-nots".
I see our homeless on the streets, our hospitals under-funded, and understaffed, our health system is an absolute mess and a disgrace ...
And yet I see multi-millions of pounds being sent offshore in aid to other countries before attending to this country's needs!
I see the ''selling off'' of water rights to foreign interests, WHY? Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us that water is a finite resource and, supposedly, we must ALL be careful with how we use it so that we ensure we have it for the future?
A Carbon Tax (which you KNOW is just another tax) will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon emissions, AT ALL! A tax, which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone, when other major countries will NOT & DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it! All that it will do for this country is put working families and small businesses behind the eight ball, what planet are you on?
If you think that the tax we must pay will make even a scrap of difference, to the effect of the carbon tax on people? Anyone can see the holes in that argument! Do you really think we are that dumb?
Let's talk about Multiculturalism. People have come here from other countries, for a better life, for decades. Post war immigrants came for a better life, and settled in, and became wonderful contributors to this country, ... all have contributed to the rich diversity of this country, and some descendants have even fought FOR this country, and they have become U.K. citizens and were glad to be, and they had NO handouts from our Government either, they worked hard for everything!
I have never before had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants coming here. However, I DO NOW!
Please tell me why we have areas in towns and on large estates all over the country, where police do NOT, & will NOT go, for fear of their life?
Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools, for fear of "OFFENDING" someone? (The latest little gem is that they are not having, or being funded, for chaplains any more, but Counsellors!)
Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in some schools, for fear of OFFENDING someone?
Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND someone?
Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres, for fear of "OFFENDING" someone?
Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in this country when, if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed?
Please tell me why our laws need to be changed so as not to OFFEND someone?
Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice in our own country because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?
Please tell me WHY Britons cannot legally wear a bike helmet covering their head in a bank, and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the whole of the face? And please tell me WHY, when those people who want asylum here can wreck our detention centres and STILL be accepted here?
What does that say about just who and what are this government's priorities?
The British people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming a second-class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it are some of the above. Are you so blind that you cannot see this?
And no, I am NOT racist! If I did not like Catholics or Protestants would I be considered racist? Of course not!
Why is it that if we object to what is happening in our country we are immediately labelled RACIST in an attempt to shut us up?
We are fighting Radical Muslims in Afghanistan & Iraq, are we not? I hear you say ''yes but the Muslims we have here are Not like That". Well how would we know?
Do we hear ANY of them coming out & speaking AGAINST radicals? I haven't, have you? Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Britain!
Are not the experiences of France and the Netherlands examples of that?
Why do you think it would be any different here?
We even have a British born "radical " whose message is that Britain WILL become a Muslim country under Sharia Law, and that we had "better get used to it ".
Will any of you grow some "balls", and start sticking up for this country and its people? We are the people who put you where you are and PAY you to look after OUR interests!
And you are NOT doing that by any stretch of the imagination!
In case it has escaped you I would like to remind you that, in the U.K., Government is FOR THE PEOPLE ... OF THE PEOPLE ... & BY THE PEOPLE.
And under NBU it will be again!
