It seems funny to note that up until recently most British people had been reluctant to publicly air their personal views on such thorny issues like immigration, race, or religion, for fear of being reported to Tony Blair's "thought and speech police", by some neighbouring earwigger, who probably shouldn't have been listening to someone else's conversation in the first place. But hey!, whose pretending that basic good manners, or for that matter, the principle of "minding your own goddamn business" actually exists in the UK anymore?
Unfortunately for us, following the introduction of Comrade Blair's, Brown's, Clegg's and Cameron's New Britain, with it's compulsory and supposedly progressive multicultural social mandate, backed up by some of the most illiberal laws in the world, most British people are now too afraid to have an opinion on the subject of immigration, race or religion, let alone express it in a public place.
After all, there can't be a single nationality, ethnicity, race, religion or a gender that can't be insulted under the terms of Britain's new multicultural and all encompassing legislation, or indeed a "jobsworth" who will feel that it's their duty to report a wholly private conversation, if they believe that some sort of infringement of these new progressive laws has taken place. It's perhaps hardly surprising that our country is in such a dire state, when our police officers, teachers, council officials and politicians are so busy looking for instances of perceived and real racial or religious intolerance that they forget to do the job they're paid to do, like catch criminals, teach students, run local services and govern the country. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" was once a popular expression some years ago, but now seems to have been supplanted by a much more worrying victim mentality, with its "Ooh! someone's hurt my feelings, better get the law involved" approach.
In fact, there doesn't appear to be that many people who can't become a victim in modern Britain! If you happen to be an immigrant of any sort, then you're automatically guaranteed victim status; and it doesn't seem to matter much whether or not you're in the country legally, or illegally. Most people of colour can be victims, but it tends to work best if you're Afro-Caribbean, or from Asia, as they're the ones we native Brits pick on the most, apparently! And if you happen to be a Black or Asian Muslim, then you've hit the jackpot, because from the day that you're born to the day that you die you're virtually guaranteed to be a victim of some sort of British racial or religious intolerance, of the types that Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron, along with their various governments have fought so hard to eliminate from our society. If you're gay, you can be a victim! If you're a foreign criminal, you can be a victim, but only if you can prove that your human rights are being threatened! So if you happen to be in danger of being deported simply find yourself some old slapper to get pregnant and you're safe from being expelled. Failing that, pinch someone's cat or dog, claim that you've built yourself a new life around the abducted moggie or pooch and you're sorted!
Sadly, as with most systems and laws there are losers, as well as winners! If you happen to be a heterosexual white native Briton, who has worked every day, not been in trouble with the law and paid every dutiful levy that you're obliged to pay, them you're plum out of luck! You cannot be a victim, as you're not allowed! However, as a bonus, you are entitled to be arrested if you publicly bemoan your fate, especially if that involves you publicly attacking or insulting any of the aforementioned individuals on the grounds of their colour, race, religion or sexual preference. Apparently, native white heterosexual Britons cannot be victims of cultural, sexual, religious or racial intolerance because according to the likes of Mr Blair, Brown, Clegg and Cameron, such infringements cannot and do not exist under their newly invented laws, so you're completely and utterly out of luck I'm afraid!
Just quite how long the majority of the native British population, the white heterosexual, hard working, wage earning, tax paying, law abiding and much discriminated against will choose to put up with being denied their rights to complain, remains to be seen. Almost inevitably, every dog that's kicked often enough will eventually turn and bite its abuser; and there is no race of people who have been more put upon and abused than the native population of the UK, so it is not really a case of "will" the British people bite back, but rather when.
What other supposedly civilised country would deliberately welcome international war criminals, organised crime figures and stock market manipulators, whilst at the same time cutting benefits and services to some of its own poorest and most deserving citizens? What civilised country would increase its own overseas aid budgets, at a time of national austerity, only to allow some of that same foreign aid money to be used to buy arms for illegal militias? What civilised country would even consider the idea of arming religious militias that are diametrically opposed to our own rule of law; and who would quite happily attack our country given half the chance?
What other country in the world would welcome a refugee and his eight children to their shores and then provide him and his children with thousands of pounds in welfare benefits and a multi-million pound house to live in? What other country would allow an illegal immigrant to make a mockery of their judicial system at a cost of millions of pounds to the taxpayer? What other country would allow their Parliamentary democracy to be usurped by a foreign government? What other country would allow its national culture and shared history to be undermined and destroyed by foreign influences? What country would allow its national tongues to be diminished and adulterated by numbers of foreign languages? What country allows its national borders to become fragmented and porous, to the extent that that country no longer controls them fully?
What country obsessively controls the conversations and language of its native peoples? What country simply pays lip service to the very concept of free speech? What country appears to give precedence to the social, religious and cultural practices of ethnic minorities before those of its majority indigenous peoples? Which country in western Europe has a capital city where the indigenous white race are now deemed to be in a minority? What country has a political elite that is quite relaxed about national wage levels being driven down by a massive influx of cheap migrant labour?
Of course it goes without saying that all of these questions are fairly obvious and that the answer to each and every one of them is the UK! And although they may not seem to have any sort of relationship to the main subject of the piece; that of certain people being almost statutory victims in the modern Britain created by Tony Blair and his successors, for me, all of the subjects mentioned above are somehow symptomatic of the same failed political ideology and social experimentation. One could be forgiven for thinking that all of our political leaders over the past few decades have deliberately pursued a policy of social fragmentation and division, currying favour with some, but not with others, rewards for some, but nothing for others, depending on which particular socio-economic group the party in power wished to pursue, or alienate, at that specific moment in time. As a result of these various policies, British society has probably never been so divided, with the rich indifferent to the poor, the poor jealous of the rich, the native suspicious of the migrant, the migrant threatened by the native.
Most sensible British people are quite rightly alarmed by the massively increasing numbers of foreign migrants, but do not necessarily blame the migrants for wanting to come to Britain to make a new life for themselves and their families. First and foremost, most British natives blame the political classes for the malaise that now confronts our society, as they were the ones who signed the treaties and opened our borders to unregulated numbers of foreign workers, without appearing to recognise the tensions that such a wave of immigration would inevitably cause. For their part too, Briton's have every right to expect that foreign migrants should try and merge with the indigenous population, rather than trying to bring a piece of Poland, Iraq, Pakistan, India or Afghanistan with them and preserve it here on the British mainland. Quite rightly, the British attitude is, if you don't like our culture, our laws, our country, our language, then go back to your own country and just leave us be. However, rather than that; the most obvious solution being used, the likes of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron have tried to fundamentally change Britain itself, including through the use of the law, with the result that they have divided migrant and native communities to an even greater degree.
The point is that you can't really regulate an entire population into compliance, unless you're prepared to undermine the very idea of democracy and free speech that our country has been built on. Who is Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg or David Cameron to decide what is acceptable to the public ear? Just because a single Muslim believer might be offended by what a non-believer might say in public, does that automatically make it unlawful? If a person walked down the street clutching a toy golliwog and a single black person was affronted by the sight of the toy, does that make it unlawful to carry such a thing? Why should a court have the authority to punish a guesthouse owner who chooses not to rent a room to a homosexual couple, especially if the booking offends the owners personal religious beliefs? What's more important, the gay couple's right to book a room, or the guesthouse owner's religious beliefs?
It's perhaps little wonder that we've allowed our country to decline to such a degree when we have so enthusiastically swallowed the mantra of "where there's blame, there's a claim", to the point that anyone with a personal axe to grind, or a highly spurious claim, or a personal agenda to pursue doesn't have to look to hard, to find some shyster lawyer, politician, judge or peer to take up the legal fight on their behalf. And as a consequence we have become a laughing stock of the world, allowing our courts, our councils and our parliament to be used as public platforms by every carpetbagger, shyster and conman we can possibly imagine, often at a huge cost to the public purse.
We now have business owners needing insurance to cover any flat-footed copper that needs their eyes tested, or is incapable of using a torch. We're probably going to need polling stations in every prison before very long. We're going to need two plastic surgery teams to do every breast implant operation, one to put them in and one to take them out when the patient changes their mind. We're going to need a lot more two million pound mansions in London for future foreign immigrants with half a dozen kids. We're definitely going to need an awful lot more public money to pay off all of the victims of hospital mistreatment (judging by the Daily Mail anyway) and no doubt a few million more will be required to pay off all those victims who have been denied justice, but who we've yet to hear from.
Happily though, the British people themselves, the white heterosexual working class, tax paying, law abiding citizens won't cost anymore than usual, because fortunately for all the other professional victims, they're just the ones who usually end up paying the bill.
