How far will the pendulum swing?

As many of you probably know by now if you keep "up" on world events, England is trying to tackle islamic fundamentalists who want to take over the country and impose Sharia laws on everyone. In that context, my dad forwarded this email to me yesterday...

If you are ready for the adventure of a lifetime, TRY THIS:
Enter Pakistan , Afghanistan or Iraq illegally. Never mind immigration quotas, visas, international law, or any of that nonsense.

Once there, demand that the local government provide free medical care for you and your entire family. Demand bilingual nurses and doctors. Demand free bilingual local government forms, bulletins, etc.

Procreate abundantly. Deflect any criticism of this allegedly irresponsible reproductive behaviour with, "It is a cultural thing; you wouldn't understand."

Keep your British identity strong. Fly your national flag from your rooftop, or proudly display it in your front window, or on your car bumper.

Speak only English at home and in public, and insist that your children do likewise. Demand classes on English culture in the Muslim school System.

Demand a local country driver license. This will afford other legal rights and will go far to legitimise your unauthorised, illegal, presence in Pakistan , Afghanistan or Iraq .

Drive around with no liability insurance and ignore local traffic laws .Insist that local country law enforcement teaches English to all its Officers.

Organise protest marches against your host country, inciting violence against non-Brits, non-Christians, and the government that let you in.

Good luck! You'll soon be dead.

Because it will never happen in Pakistan , Afghanistan or Iraq or any other country in the world except right here in the UK. For we are run by soft, politically correct politicians, that are too scared to "offend" anyone.

I'm no more anti-Muslim than I am pro-Christian and I have to say that it's all the UK's own fault. Patriotism and national pride have been frowned upon in my country for too long in the name of tolerance and multi-culturalism. And the British people (black, white, asian or otherwise) have just stood back and watched it happen. Officially, British people disengaged from the issue with polite fatalism, while secretly bitching and moaning to one-another about the "state of the country today". (It's a cultural phenomenon that the Brits will complain to anyone that will listen but when asked by someone who can do something about it, will politely say nothing's wrong). Then, people were too scared to say anything, for fear of being branded "racist".

Now, of course, the anger and frustration is beginning to build and emails like this are going out all over the net. Additionally, people are joining a far-right political party called The British National Front, which, in the eyes of many, seemed to go from right-wing-looney-bin to reasonable political alternative overnight.

And in this, there is a danger that the pendulum will swing too far in the opposite direction, polarizing the country entirely. The National Front, while seemingly harmless on the surface, self-proclaims its policies as based upon Racial Nationalism, which sounds scarily like Naziism to me. They define this as being for: concepts of personal liberty, social justice, national independence and racial integrity. Which, in short, means throw out everyone who's not white. And no, I'm not exaggerating. In the FAQs on their website it says this:


And further that..."Blacks, as well as other races have a right to enjoy, maintain and protect their own races and cultures - in their own countries."

OUCH. And previously main-stream politicians are joining organizations like, and associated with, this.

Of course, the National Front is far from mobilizing the British population in any significant or impactful way. Ultimately, I'm sure, Blair's government will be ousted in the next national election and someone more conservative will slowly begin to turn the tide with incremental change. I HOPE. If not, let's hope my Brits find a typically polite and tolerant way to get themselves off this horrible path.
