Foreign Aid Costs £479 for every household in Britain. As Tories Admit that British National Party Was Right All Along

Foreign Aid: Tories to Admit that British National Party Was Right All Along
The British National Party Newsroom
A leaked draft copy of the government’s foreign aid spending review, has all but admitted that the British National Party has been correct on the topic — but still insists on increasing the amount of British money handed out to the Third World.
The document, leaked to the BBC ahead of this week’s spending review to be announced in parliament, apparently states that British foreign aid handouts are to be stopped to at least 16 countries, including Russia, China and Iraq.
In addition, aid to India will be “frozen,” whatever that might mean.
The dramatic turnaround comes after months of sustained pressure from the British National Party on the subject, which finally forced the issue to the forefront of politics after having been deliberately hidden for decades.
Although this move is a major concession to growing popular opinion on the topic — and an understanding that it is the British National Party which is responsible for it coming to the public’s attention — the manoeuvre does not in fact reduce the foreign aid spend.
Instead, the spending review merely redeploys the billions in the budget, and, to add insult to injury, will increase the total amount spent.
According to the document, the international development budget will rise by a third because “aid spending is good for Britain's economy and safety.”
This blatant Tory lie — that it is “good” for the economy — is exposed by the simple fact that the foreign aid budget is twice as much as the total cutbacks on university spending, which is set to cripple higher education in Britain.
In addition, the document apparently says, by 2014, some 30 percent of British foreign aid is to go to “war-torn and unstable countries.”
Afghanistan will continue to be a major aid recipient, being “war-torn.”
Of course, the only reason why it is in that condition was because the Labour/Tory elite waged war on that nation in the first place.
The Department for International Development’s budget for 2009/2010 was £7.8 billion, but the total foreign spend in all sectors for that period was £8.4 billion.
This figure is set to rise to £12.6 billion per year by 2014, equal to £479 for every household in Britain.
Furthermore, at this rate, the total foreign aid spend over the next ten years will amount to £126 billion. This figure is a conservative estimate, as both Labour and Tories have promised to keep increasing the budget year-on-year.
The halting of aid to Russia, China, Iraq and India does not meet the demands of the British National Party on the subject, which is the complete halting of all foreign aid while there is need or want here at home.

Immigration DID hurt wages and Labour 'under-estimated significantly' the influx, admits Miliband

Immigration from Eastern Europe was underestimated by the former Labour government and hit people's wage packets, Ed Miliband admitted today.

The Labour leader said economic migration had been allowed to widen the gap between rich and poor.

In a speech, he admitted that the previous government had been wrong not to concentrate on the type of economy it was building.

'The story of the last two decades is of an economy divided between high-skill, high-productivity sectors and low-skill jobs,' he said.

'At the same time, economic migration and greater labour market flexibility have increased the pressure faced by those in lower skill work.'

He added: 'There is a difference between our government and this one - we did take action through tax credits and other decisions to help families.

'But we were wrong not to focus more on the type of economy we were building and what that meant for the widening gulf between those at the very top and the rest.'

Taking questions afterwards, Mr Miliband said there was no doubt that managed migration contributes to the economy.

But he said: 'We've got to look at the interaction of migration with, for example, flexible labour markets, because when you have the interaction of Eastern European migration and flexible labour markets there was pressure created on people's wages.'

Mr Miliband added: 'We were certainly wrong about the number of people who were going to come in, make no bones about it, because I think we under-estimated significantly the number of people who were going to come in from Eastern Europe.'

Mr Miliband said that, despite 'advances' under Labour, the economy was 'not delivering' for many people, including increasing numbers of middle earners.

Number of Eastern Europeans in UK jails goes up by 850% in five years

A few days ago it was revealed that under Labour rule 3 million immigrants entered in the UK, an invasion unprecedented in British history.

It is probable that the real number is way higher than that, no one knows how many illegal immigrants are living here, or those with EU passports that have the right to stay here.

These figures are outrageous, and the citizens of this country should be up in arms, especially when we now know that Labour planned this invasion deliberately in order to make Britain multicultural.

Below is an article published by The Sun that demonstrates, once again, how much ( not only financially) we are paying for this enrichment.


The Sun

The number of Eastern Europeans caged in our jails annually jumped 850 per cent in five years, The Sun can reveal.

And one in ten foreigners jailed every year is Polish, according to shock figures.

Just 99 Poles were banged up in England and Wales in 2004. But there were 1,240 Polish lags in 2009, the last year figures were available – a staggering leap of 1,153 per cent.

The statistics are revealed in Freedom of Information figures obtained by The Sun.

Eight Eastern European bloc countries joined the EU in 2004. It gave people from those countries the right to live and work freely in the UK.

Overall, the number of foreigners jailed here between 2004 and 2009 rocketed from 8,355 to 12,408 – a 48.5 per cent hike.

A total of 883 Lithuanians were jailed in 2009 – compared with only 105 in 2004.

There were 326 Latvians caged in 2009 compared with 23 five years earlier. The number of Romanians locked up mirrored the pattern – going from 180 in 2004 to 880 in 2009. Initial figures suggest the number of foreign lags jailed here in 2010 topped 2009′s statistics.

Last night a TaxPayers’ Alliance spokeswoman said: “The number of foreigners who come to the country, commit crime and then stay here in prison at the taxpayers’ expense is worrying. They are a burden.”

The Sun also published a table of the number of inmates put in prison in order of nationality in 2009.

1 Poland 1240

2 Lithuania 883

3 Romania 880

4 Ireland 689

5 Nigeria 581

6 China 527

7 Jamaica 485

8 Vietnam 477

9 Somalia 380

10 Pakistan 372

11 India 364

12 Zimbabwe 330

13 Latvia 326

14 Portugal 293

15 Iran 256

The above figures underestimate the number of foreign prisoners enormously because they don’t take into account the number of people jailed in the previous years or the second and third generation immigrants.

As British prisons are severely overcrowded it would make sense to send these foreigners home to serve their sentence in their own country so that we could make space and save money.

But I don’t think I have to explain that European Yooman right laws make this impossible.

*In the meantime in Holland the minister for social affairs and employment Henk Kamp said that unemployed and homeless immigrants from Eastern Europe should be sent back home and if they do not want to leave the Netherlands they should be expelled.

In an interview for the De Telegraaf daily the minister also said that if the immigrants keep coming back to the Netherlands they should have “unwelcome foreigner” status slapped on their passports.

Kamp, a member of the right-wing VVD party which is currently the senior coalition partner in the Dutch government, alluded mainly to Poles who are the largest group of 200,000 ‘gastarbeiters’ from the new EU states.

The Dutch minister said that Poles can stay in the Netherlands as long as they have a legal job. But when they lose employment they become a burden to the state.

“As a government, you have to point this out to people and if they don’t listen or keep coming back, deport them. As a last resort, you can declare them ‘undesirable aliens,’ Kamp told De Telegraaf.

According to Kamp, 40 percent in Dutch homeless shelters are Polish.

A Polish ex-pat organisation in the Netherlands says that the politician is pointing the finger at Poles before local elections in March.

“Dutch politicians have started campaigning for the March municipal elections and Poles are under fire,” Malgorzata Bos-Karczewska, head of Polonia.nl web site for Polish expats in the Netherlands told the Gazeta Wyborcza daily.

If Mr Kamp is getting tough on immigration it is because one of the parties belonging to the government coalition is the Party for Freedom, led by Geert Wilders.

Indeed the increasing support enjoyed by Mr Wilders is forcing Dutch politicians to pay attention to voters’ concern about immigration.

Whilst the whingeing Muslim, Sayeeda Warsi is moaning about the rise of islamophobia, another case of Muslims raping underage British girls has occurred in Shropshire.

Eight Telford men appeared in court charged in connection with alleged sexual offences and child prostitution relating to four girls, one aged 13.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 2007 and 2009.

All the men today denied a total of 50 charges between them when they appeared at Shrewsbury Crown Court.

Ahdel Ali, 22, of Regent Street, Wellington, is charged with raping a child aged 13, sexual activity with a child, trafficking for sexual exploitation – arranging or facilitating child prostitution – meeting a child following sexual grooming, facilitating child prostitution and controlling a child prostitute.

Mubarek Ali, 27, or Regent Street, is charged with trafficking for sexual exploitation – arranging or facilitating child prostitution – controlling a child prostitute and facilitating child prostitution.

Tanveer Ahmed, 38, of Urban Gardens, Wellington, is charged with sexual activity with a child, facilitating child prostitution, controlling a child prostitute, and causing child prostitution.

Marhoof Khan, 32, of Caradoc Flats, Wellington, is charged with sexual activity with a child.

Mohammed Ali Saltan, 23, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington, is charged with rape and sexual activity with a child. Mohammed Islam Choudhrey, 51, of Solway Drive, Sutton Hill, is charged with paying for sexual services with a child, causing child prostitution, and arranging or facilitating child prostitution.

Noshad Hussain, 20, of Regent Street, Wellington, is accused of having sexual activity with a child. Abdul Rouf, 33, of Kingsland, Arleston, is charged with conspiracy to cause child prostitution.

The case was adjourned until April 15 at Wolverhampton.

All the men were granted bail.

Once again we see perverts who should not be in this country in the first place allegedly raping indigenous British children. We do not hear about the grooming and molestation of little muslim girls do we?
Probably because little muslim girls are not looked upon by these fiends as readily available fresh meat.

I’m still waiting to hear what Sayeeda Warsi has to say on this one.

One aspect of this story is that the British National Party in the past has delivered leaflets in the area trying to raise awareness about this problem well before the MSM admitted that we have been right all along.

Whether our influence forced the Police to act it’s hard to say, but whenever we hear that in any given area muslim paedophiles are targeting British children we should be there leafleting and holding street tabletops


Foreign nurses will be able to work here with just TWO days' testing in EU shake-up

Poorly-trained foreign nurses will be allowed to work in Britain after completing only two days of role playing and multiple choice tests.

The short course replaces the rigorous assessments and exams currently undertaken by those failing to meet NHS standards.

To work on wards, nurses are likely to need to show only their skills on dummies, with no requirement to speak good English.

The shake-up is being imposed by the European Union, which says tests on foreign workers go against its freedom of movement laws.

Senior health officials fear the multiple choice assessments, which will begin in April, will be unrealistic and too easy.

Under the existing rules, any EU nurse whose training is deemed substandard must go on an intensive adaptation programme lasting up to six months before they can work in UK hospitals. The courses, which can cost up to £1,500, are run by universities and consist of theory tests, written coursework and practical exams in wards or nursing homes.

Although not directly assessed on their English, candidates would struggle to pass without good language skills.

The regime is so strict that only a quarter of the 8,000 EU nurses who apply to work in the UK every year see the process through.

Most are put off by the cost and difficulty of making the grade.

Those not up to scratch largely come from states relatively new to the EU such as Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Estonia and Latvia.

The new tests are being drawn up by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. It is understood they will involve multiple choice, role plays and demonstrations on dummy patients – and may last just two days.

Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, said: ‘These multiple choice tests will be far too simple.

Freedom of movement laws stop EU states testing the competence and language skills of medics from other member countries.

But some, including France, get round the rules by ensuring prospective candidates are tested by local health boards rather than by the national watchdog. Nurses must apply to one of these ‘agences régionales de santé’ and will be invited to attend tough skills and language tests.

Only once they pass these are they allowed to work in a hospital, surgery or nursing home.

If they fail they will be told to go on an adaptation course to brush up their skills and knowledge of the French system.

As these tests are not set at a national level, they are not deemed to be breaking the freedom of movement rules.

Similarly GPs wanting to work in France are invited for interview by the local health board.

‘This is giving patient safety no priority. How can nurses’ ability to carry out drug calculations and all the other skills required on the ward be assessed in a multiple choice test? It’s disgraceful that this is allowed to happen.’

John Lister, director of campaign group London Health Emergency, said: ‘This is a retrograde step and this is something the NMC should be challenging in court.’

The council is being forced to take action after being threatened with lawsuits by Bulgarian nurses who claimed it was too difficult to register to work in Britain.

The EU has also blocked rigorous checks on foreign GPs who want to work here. This had disastrous results in 2008 when engineer David Gray died at the hands of German locum Daniel Ubani, who gave him ten times the normal dose of diamorphine.

Mr Gray’s son Stuart, who is a GP in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, said: ‘It’s a ludicrous system. The NHS is a very different to other countries’ health systems and people need training before they can practise here.’

Nurses from countries outside the EU will still face stringent tests.

The NHS relies on foreign nurses and in the past decade more than 90,000 have registered to work in the UK, mainly from the Philippines, Australia, India and South Africa.

Relaxing the entry requirements for EU nurses is likely to see an influx of nurses who had felt it too much trouble to work in Britain.

A spokesman for the Nursing and Midwifery Council said: ‘The test will ensure that EU-trained nurses are able to meet the same standards that we require of nurses who trained in the UK.’

A Department of Health spokesman said foreign healthcare professionals would need to pass robust language and competency tests.

Seven new human rights cases against Britain every day... and Strasbourg court's judgments are already costing the taxpayer £2billion a year

At least seven new cases are being lodged against Britain at the European Court of Human Rights every day, causing a huge backlog and a massive bill for UK taxpayers.

The Strasbourg-based court was accused of presiding over a ‘field day for criminals’ after the number of actions against the UK almost doubled in the last 12 months.

Official figures released by the court revealed yesterday that the total number of cases pending against Britain rose from 1,690 in 2009 to 3,172 last year.

The Strasbourg human rights court was accused of presiding over a 'field day for criminals' after the number of actions against the UK almost doubled in the last 12 months

On average, more than 50 new actions a week were lodged against the UK at the Strasbourg court. The rate of cases being brought is rising five times more quickly in Britain than in the rest of Europe.

This helped to increase the court’s overall backlog of cases by 17 per cent last year to a staggering 140,000 – up from 120,000 the previous year.

The soaring number of cases against the UK is hugely unwelcome at a time of financial strictures. Research by the TaxPayers’ Alliance suggests that the cost of complying with the court’s judgments is already running at more than £2billion a year.

The astonishing figures led to renewed calls for ministers to ‘draw a line in the sand’ with the court, which has prompted fury by ruling that Britain must give prisoners the vote. Failure to comply could lead to further claims for compensation running into many millions of pounds.

Mr Raab, a former international lawyer, said: ‘We’ve seen a surge in litigation against Britain as Strasbourg rewrites UK law – a field day for criminals avoiding deportation or suing the prison service, and a nightmare for the British taxpayer.

Terror expert Lord Carlile also said it was time for ministers to ‘get hold of this issue and show leadership’.

The Liberal Democrat peer, who is the independent adviser to the Government on Britain’s terror laws, said the European Convention on Human Rights drawn up after the Second World War ‘needs to be revised’ to take account of modern developments.

Lord Carlile also suggested that cases against the UK should be dealt with by British judges in British courts rather than handled by a Strasbourg court drowning in work.

He said British judges were ‘actually rather better’.

‘Human rights should not be enforced in Strasbourg. They should be enforced in the Welshpool county court or the Wolverhampton crown court without the need to wait for a backlog which is increasing every month. The case management system of the European Court of Human Rights is actually defunct.’

The latest figures will add to concern in Britain about the operation of the Strasbourg court and its power to overrule Parliament.

MPs will vote on Thursday on whether to back Government plans to lift the blanket ban on allowing prisoners to vote.

Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke has warned that the UK could face a compensation bill of more than £100million if it fails to give prisoners the vote. Mr Clarke has suggested that the UK must do at least the ‘minimum’ required by the court – possibly involving giving the vote to criminals sentenced to less than a year in jail.

But, in an extraordinary move, David Cameron has given his MPs a free vote on the issue – effectively encouraging them to vote down the idea. Even ministers have been told they can abstain on the issue.

Hundreds of MPs are expected to vote against the idea, which breaches the long- standing principle of British law that criminals sacrifice the right to vote when they commit offences.

MPs believe the vote could strengthen the Government’s hand in settling the long-running issue with the court. But some are also now pressing for the UK to pull out of the Strasbourg court’s jurisdiction and repatriate human rights law.

Britain 'to grant 20,000 visas to Indian workers as part of EU trade deal'

The UK is set to welcome 20,000 extra Indian workers a year due to a secretive trade deal brokered by the European Union.

Britain will accept thousands of skilled workers in exchange for lucrative export deals, even though the public sector are cutting jobs and unemployment stands at 2.5million.

The EU India Free Trade Agreement was initiated by Former Trade Commissioner Lord Mandelson in 2007 and is expected to be signed by the middle of this year.

Under the agreement European countries will grant India between 35,000 and 50,000 visas in return for £4billion worth of trade.

However, sources have revealed that India are demanding up to 20,000 of them should be provided by the UK, with only 7,000 asked of Germany and 3,000 expected from France. Meanwhile Estonia is expected to accept just 19 individuals.

The 20,000 will not count towards the Coalition's pledge to cap net immigration at 'tens of thousands.'

The workers will be exempt from National Insurance in their first year but will be able to use the NHS.

Sir Andrew Green, the chairman of MigrationWatch UK, said: 'The secrecy surrounding this deal has gone on long enough.

'This scheme makes a nonsense of efforts to limit economic migration.'

A spokesman for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, told The Sunday Telegraph: 'Strict criteria are being negotiated to ensure there is a focus on highly-skilled and highly-qualified professionals entering the UK temporarily.'

Nearly 30,000 workers came to Britain from India last year. Two thirds of them travelled as part of the intra-company transfer scheme. This is also exept from the Coalition's interim immigration cap.

Britain is losing its battle against Islamic extremists... says French MP who banned the burqa

Britain is 'losing the battle against Islamic extremism' by failing to outlaw burqas, the architect of the French ban said today.

Jacques Myard, a senior member of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s ruling UMP party, said relaxed UK policies had ‘opened the door to terrorism’.

He added: ‘Allowing women to exclude themselves from society by wearing the full Islamic veil makes radicals extremely comfortable, and Britain should realise this.’
Jacques Myard

Mr Myard made his outspoken comments to British journalists in Qatar, where he was defending his country’s recent banning of the veil at the prestigious Qatar Foundation Doha Debates, which will be broadcast by the BBC this weekend.

His comments will inflame tensions between London and Paris five years after the 7/7 London bombings, which the French have regularly blamed on lax policing.

Referring to the 2005 atrocity, which left 52 dead and hundreds injured, Mr Myard added: ‘Britain has suffered a number of high-profile failures in its fight against extremism in recent years.

‘These could have been prevented if all signs of extremism were curbed, as they are in France.’
Asked if Britain should introduce its own burqa ban, Mr Myard replied: ‘Of course - it is fundamental to ensuring that extremism is kept in check.

'There’s a good reason why London was nicknamed Londonistan - it was full of Islamic extremists. People should be learning from these mistakes.’

As chairman of the cross-party commission which spent two years investigating burqas and niqabs in France, Mr Myard’s recommendations led to a full ban being passed by Parliament earlier this month.

It has already led to terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda issuing threats against France, but the country has largely escaped the kind of atrocities which have blighted countries including Britain and the U.S. over the past decade.

In a more light-hearted snipe at his neighbours across the Channel, Mr Myard said: ‘The French have been standing up for gender equality since Joan Of Arc fought the English barbarians six hundred years ago.

‘Women should not have to wear the burqa, which by its very nature excludes them from France’s secular Republic.’

Despite his strong defence of the burqa ban in Qatar, Mr Myard lost the Doha Debate entitled ‘This House believes France is right to ban the face veil’.

He was defeated by a team of London journalists, made up of Mehdi Hassan and Nabila Ramdani, as 78 per cent of voters rejected the motion.

Some 350million people across 200 countries are expected to watch the debate when it is broadcast by channels including BBC World on Saturday and Sunday.

Pakistan to overtake Britain as world's fifth largest nuclear power

Pakistan is on the verge of overtaking Britain as the world's fifth largest nuclear power at a time when the country faces an unprecedented threat from extremists.

American intelligence agencies believe that Pakistan now has more than 100 deployed nuclear weapons, an increase of nearly 40 per cent in two years.

It means that one of the countries considered the most unstable in the region is ahead of both Britain and, significantly arch-rival India, to own the fifth largest nuclear arsenal behind the United States, Russia, France and China.

Pakistan showed they had nuclear weapons after their display three years ago (left) though President Asif Ali Zardari could face questions as to how the country can afford to keep investing in weapons

The Times reported today that the world's biggest nuclear power station might well involve several British companies, including Rolls Royce and Serco.

A top drawer trade delegation team from Britain, led by Lady Judge,touched down in Mumbai today, with a view to helping build the six giant reactors in Jaitapur, on the west coast of India.

The park will cost £13.5billion and will have a capacity of 9,900 megawatts, which is more than the combined output of eight Sizewell B stations (which serve two million British homes each).

In July Prime Minister David Cameron signed a pact to share civil technology with India, and John NcNamara of the Nuclear Industry Association in Britain said that the proposal at Jaitapur is 'certainly of interest', according to the Times.

India are looking to quadruple their nuclear power output by 2020 with the help of the super plant.

The Pakistan military says it needs more nuclear weapons to counter and deter India's more conventional military might.

The two countries conducted nuclear tests in 1998, and have fought three wars since partition and independence in 1947.

The U.S. analysis is based on the recent increase in the production of plutonium and highly enriched uranium and some experts put the figure for nuclear weapons as high as 110.

Many of these have been miniaturised to be mounted on ballistic missiles with ranges of more than 1,245 miles bringing many Indian cities within reach.

The weapons have been kept at depots all over Pakistan - some are said to be near the main air bases.

The revelation of the growing size of its nuclear weapons will throw the spotlight on the massive aid packages given to Islamabad by the West, especially the U.S..

It will also raise questions about how the beleaguered administration of President Asif Ali Zardari can justify spending on nuclear weapons when so many in his country live in poverty and appalling conditions.

Last year millions was raised worldwide by charities for victims of Pakistan's devastating floods.

Shropshire’s most crime-ridden streets revealed

Shropshire’s most crime-ridden streets revealed

Shropshire’s most crime-hit street was today revealed as Bishopdale on the Brookside housing estate in Telford.

The street saw 27 crimes committed in December according to the newly-launched police crime map website.

Hills Lane, in Shrewsbury, with 25 crimes, and Coney Green, Oswestry, with 19, were the two next worst trouble spots.

The county crime map shows that more than 1,300 crimes were committed in Shropshire in December and revealed that Shrewsbury has one of the highest crime rates per head of population in the country – with rates higher than those in Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Leeds.

Shrewsbury had the highest volume of crimes committed during December with 365, followed by 268 in Telford and 207 in Oswestry.

Bishopdale saw 18 anti-social behaviour crimes, four violent crimes, two vehicle crimes and three other crimes while it was a similar story in Hills Lane where 16 anti-social behaviour crimes were reported along with four violent crimes and five other crimes.

Ten anti-social behaviour crimes took place in Coney Green with two violent crimes and five other crimes.

The crime map was launched by police last week and allows people to see how many crimes are committed on any street in England and Wales.

Polish migrants living in Britain claiming £21m in child benefits for children left behind

Britain's taxpayers are forking out more than £21million a year in child benefit for youngsters living in Poland, official figures reveal.

A loophole in EU regulations means migrants from other EU countries who are seeking work in the UK can claim state handouts for children they have left behind in their home countries.

The total benefits bill for the Treasury is likely to be closer to £50million a year when other Eastern European countries are included.

In addition, ministers refuse to reveal how much more is being paid out in tax credits. Last night, the revelations prompted demands for a shake-up of the rules, with critics complaining of a "Government-sanctioned scam" at a time when millions of British children remain in poverty.

Britain's child benefit payments of £941 per year for a first child or £629 per year for younger siblings are far higher than the equivalent paymentsin Eastern European states that are new EU members.

The Polish benefits system, for example, pays a maximum of around £160 per year in child benefit.

Investigations have found that many workers moving to Britain are fraudulently claiming family benefits in both countries, exploiting lax checks and poor information sharing between member states.

Figures released by the Treasury in answer to Parliamentary written questions from the Conservatives show that at the end of September 26,000 Polish children from 16,286 families were being paid child benefits by UK taxpayers.

That means 16,286 first-born children were receiving the full £18.10 per week with the remaining 10,000 getting the lower payment of £12.10 per week.

The figures show that the number of claimants is soaring.

In June last year, the Treasury said 14,000 families from eight Eastern European states were claiming the benefits - around 10,000 were estimated to be Polish.

Open borders: More than 700,000 workers from Eastern Europe have arrived in Britain in the four years since their countries joined the EU

Three months later the figure for Poland alone had risen to 16,286.

At this rate of increase the benefits bill could more than double in a year, with thousands more Eastern European families joining in the benefits bonanza.

Although all the payments are legal under EU law, critics claim they provide an added incentive for immigrants to come to the UK.

Britain was one of the only EU states to give workers from eight Eastern European states full access to its jobs market when they joined the EU in 2004.

They were: the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Hungary and Poland.

Romania and Bulgaria joined the EU a year ago.

Ministers predicted that around 13,000 workers would arrive in Britain each year. In reality more than 700,000 have arrived, more than half from Poland.

Polish newspapers regularly run features explaining exactly how to claim benefits in the UK.

Once EU nationals have been working and paying tax in Britain for 12 months, they are entitled to the same level of state support as any British citizen, including child benefit for their children living in another EU country.

A spokesman for HM Revenue and Customs said claimants had to provide evidence to support claims for children abroad, such as a birth certificate.

It is thought that even larger sums are being paid out to Eastern European workers in tax credits - financial support provided through the tax system for those with children or on lower incomes. Ministers say, however, that total figures are "not available".

Conservative MP Andrew Selous, who uncovered the latest figures, said: "This shows there is a need for a serious reassessment of this aspect of the welfare state.

"The Government still refuses to answer how much child tax credit is paid to migrant workers whose children live abroad. They have shown no leadership or political will in trying to sort out this issue."

Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: "When will Gordon Brown get a grip?

"Some 3.8million British children are living in poverty and yet £21million of taxpayers' money is going to Poland because our benefits system is such a shambles.

"We need to know how much this Government-sanctioned scam is really costing the taxpayer."

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the MigrationWatch think tank, said: "It makes absolutely no sense to pay benefits at British rates for children in a country where the cost of living is a fraction of ours.

"It is time these EU arrangements were renegotiated."

2.5 Million Unemployed, but 1 Million Illegal Immigrants and ‘Tens of Thousands’ to Avoid Annual Cap

Unemployment rose by 44,000 to nearly 2.5 million in the last three months of 2010, according to the latest report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) — while other figures showed that there are now over one million illegal immigrants, and hundreds of thousands of “asylum seekers” in Britain.

To add insult to injury, the ConDem regime’s ‘immigration cap’ specifically excludes ‘tens of thousands’ of migrants, EU workers and a free trade deal with India will allow in thousands of Indian workers over and above any other immigration figures.

According to the ONS figures, one of the biggest increases was in youth unemployment, with one in five 16 to 24-year-olds now out of work. The overall unemployment rate has risen to 7.9 percent and the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance also rose by 2,400 to 1.46 million in January.

In April 2010, a MigrationWatch UK report said that there are more than one million illegal immigrants in Britain and that the number of visa overstayers is increasing by at least 60,000 per year. This is because the last Tory government abolished all exit controls at British airports and ports.

The number of asylum seekers runs at anywhere between 30,000 and 60,000 per year, with more than 92 percent of them being allowed to stay even if their asylum applications are rejected.

Meanwhile, all foreigners earning more than £150,000 a year will be exempt from the ‘immigration cap’ hoax, it was announced this week.

The supposed cap, which is to come into force in April, will not affect any migrant worker already in the UK even if they change jobs or visas.

Companies will also still be able to bring in overseas staff who earn less than a planned salary cap so long as they rotate them each year.

Around 36,000 'skilled' workers arrived in the UK last year alone.

The total disregard for young British people in favour of outsiders has become a hallmark of the Westminster parties.

Other ONS figures released earlier this week showed that 20 percent of all new graduates in Britain have been unable to find work and have had to resort to dole money to live.

The figures also showed that 45 percent of 16 to 17-year-old school leavers ready for work, were also unable to find a job.

For new graduates, the unemployment rate has doubled since the start of the recession to 20 percent in the third quarter of last year. It is now at its highest for more than a decade.

The jobless rate among graduates has jumped by 6.3 percent compared with 5.3 percent for those without a degree.

Despite this, the Government has agreed to participate in a scheme to allow thousands of Indian IT and other workers free access to Britain’s job market in terms of an EU free trade deal with India.

This free trade agreement was piloted through all of its major stages by the previous Labour government in the form of Peter Mandelson, and has been endorsed by the Conservative/Lib-Dem coalition.

Once again, the establishment parties have all activley colluded to put the British people last.

'We've gone too far in soft-spoken tolerance of multicultural dogmas'

Exposed: Shocking neglect of the elderly on wards of shame

Frail: The report cites distraught relatives saying loved ones have been completely ignored and their basic rights disregarded

Frail: The report cites distraught relatives saying loved ones have been completely ignored and their basic rights disregarded

Shocking neglect of the elderly is exposed again today in a damning report that claims the NHS is failing to meet even the most basic standards of care.

Complaints to health watchdogs include accounts of patients being left so dehydrated on wards they cannot even cry out for help.

Distraught relatives say loved ones have been completely ignored and their basic rights disregarded.

Frail patients are discharged from hospital when they are dangerously underweight while one elderly woman was sent home in another patient’s soiled clothes, held up by paper clips.

The shocking stories are detailed in an investigation by the Health Service Ombudsman, who accuses NHS staff of an ‘ignominious failure’ to care for the elderly.

Ann Abraham, whose job is to carry out detailed investigations of the Health Service, warns that the NHS is failing to respond to the needs of older people with care and compassion.

Her report concludes that doctors and nurses have a dismissive attitude and are apparently indifferent to deplorable standards of care.

It highlights ten appalling examples of neglect of the frail and vulnerable.

Its findings come just two months after the Daily Mail launched a campaign to end such scandalous treatment.

Today’s report highlights how meal trays, water and emergency call buttons are routinely left out of reach. It claims at least five of the ten patients had not been given enough food or drink during their hospital stay. They were described as individuals who tended to put up with difficult circumstances without making a fuss.

‘Like all of us, they wanted to be cared for properly and, at the end of their lives, to die peacefully and with dignity,’ it added.
Ten cases that shocked the watchdog

Poor care or badly managed medication contributed to their deteriorating health, as they were transformed from alert and able individuals to people who were dehydrated, malnourished or unable to communicate.

Accounts from distraught relatives describe how nurses are too busy chatting to help the elderly eat their food.

Patients are not even helped to the toilet and are left for months without being taken to the shower or bath. Relatives themselves are also being ignored by staff and in one case doctors switched off a patient’s life-support machine against the wishes of his family.
Critic: Michelle Mitchell of Age UK said it is difficult to imagine allowing any other group of people to suffer the same indignity and neglect

Critic: Michelle Mitchell, of Age UK, said it is difficult to imagine allowing any other group of people to suffer the same indignity and neglect

Last night campaigners and patient groups accused the NHS of failing the vulnerable.

Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, said: ‘The situation is completely unacceptable. The NHS should always get these basic patient needs right. There isn’t an on-cost to this – it is an entitlement that every individual has a right to.

‘Attitudes need to change – older patients need to be treated with respect and compassion, not as an inconvenience.’

Michelle Mitchell, charity director at Age UK, said: ‘The inhumane treatment of older people described in this report is sickening and should send shockwaves through the NHS and government. It’s difficult to imagine us allowing any other group of people to suffer this indignity and neglect, yet we know this is just the tip of the iceberg: appalling treatment of older people in the Health Service is far too common.

‘This is not only a damning indictment of our health service, but of our society in general, where older people count for less and damaging discriminatory attitudes against older people remain rife.’

The ombudsman deals with complaints that patients and relatives feel have not been properly dealt with by hospitals, GPs or other NHS services.

They are advised to raise their concerns with a hospital or surgery first, and if that is unsuccessful make a formal complaint to the primary care trust. They can also contact independent organisations such as the Patient Advice and Liaison Service or the Independent Complaints Advocacy Service.

More than 9,000 complaints were examined by the health watchdog and almost a fifth concerned older people.

Care services minister Paul Burstow said: ‘This report exposes the urgent need to update our NHS.

‘We need a culture where poor practice is challenged and quality is the watchword.

‘The dignity of frail older people should never be side-lined.

‘Leadership on the front line is key to driving out poor practice.’

The Localism Bill

Parish Councillor James North explains why the proposed new 'Localism Bill' will have far reaching consequences.

It is of the utmost importance that all British National Party members become members of their local Town or Parish Council, and join community groups in their locality.

Power is being devolved and we must be there to capitalise on this.

Passport photo of girl, 5, banned 'in case it offends Muslims'

Hannah Edwards: This is the picture the local post office rejected. Click on photo to enlarge
A five-year-old girl had her passport form rejected when an official said the bare shoulders on her photograph could offend Muslims.
The post office assistant stunned Hannah Edwards's parents by claiming the skin exposed by her daughter's halter-neck dress would not be accepted by the Passport Office as it might prove unacceptable in a Muslim country.
The incident happened when Jane and Martin Edwards took the picture, which was taken in a photo-booth, to a post office in the Sheffield area along with the completed form for checking ahead of a family holiday in the South of France.
The counter clerk told them she was aware of at least two other cases where applications had been rejected because a person's shoulders were not covered in their photo.
Mrs Edwards, a GP in Sheffield, had to rush around for two hours getting new pictures taken and countersigned.
'I was incensed,' she said yesterday. 'I went back home and checked the form.
'Nowhere did it say anything about covering up shoulders. If it had, I would have done so, but it all seems so unnecessary.
'This is quite ridiculous, I followed the instructions on the passport form to the letter and it was still rejected. It is just officialdom pandering to political correctness.
'It is a total over-reaction. How can the shoulders of a five-year-old girl offend anyone?
'It's not as if anything else was showing. The dress she wore was sleeveless but it has a high neck.'
Hannah had her first passport when she was three months old but her mother and father realised it was due to expire during their holiday this month. They aimed to complete the application on Saturday, the day Hannah was to be Sheffield Wednesday's mascot at their Hillsborough football stadium.
Mrs Edwards said she was also on call from her surgery when she had to spend time having the picture retaken.
'The referees who had signed the original application were not available,' she said. 'I had to chase around and eventually found a neighbour who was a teacher to sign the pictures.'
A spokesman for the Passport Service said it was not policy to reject applications with bare shoulders.
'The guidance set out on the application form doesn't include it, this picture should have been absolutely fine,' she added. 'The Post Office has its rules and we can't comment on that.'

43% of council chiefs get paid more than David Cameron

Study of 300 local authorities shows almost half of chief executives earn over £150,000, more than PM's £142,500
    Eric Pickles
    Eric Pickles, the communities and local government secretary, has urged council bosses to show pay restraint. Photograph: Eddie Mulholland/Rex Features Almost half of local authority chief executives were paid more than £150,000 last year – more than the prime minister, according to research. A study of 300 councils in England and Wales showed that pay ranged from £62,000 in West Somerset to almost £300,000 in the London borough of Wandsworth. 43% of local authority chief executives were paid over £150,000 last year, trumping the prime minister's salary of £142,500. The figures will prove controversial at a time when councils are passing on large reductions in central government funding to their constituents in the form of cuts to services such as libraries. According to the report by Incomes Data Services, county council chief executives in the south-east of England were the highest paid, with average earnings of £204,000, compared with £159,000 in the south-west. District council chief executives in the south-east were also the highest paid, receiving an average of £118,000, while the lowest figure was in the north-west, at £104,000. Only one in five chief executives was female, although pay rates were similar to men, said the report. The highest paid female chief executive last year was at Essex county council, earning £237,000. Nasreen Rahman of IDS said: "With nearly half of all local authority chief executives earning more than the prime minister, clearly, in the current climate, town hall bosses will be facing tough questions from council tax-payers. "For the first time, such a comprehensive picture of local authority senior executive pay is possible because of the new disclosure regulation brought in last year, where local authorities have to give more salary information on their top paid officials." Eric Pickles, the communities and local government secretary, urged council bosses to show pay restraint. He told the Telegraph: "We are not asking councils to do anything that central government isn't already doing. The prime minister has taken a pay cut, I've taken a pay cut, and government ministers have taken pay cuts."

Thousands of illegal workers claiming benefits: Loophole in the law costs taxpayers millions

  • 155,000 illegal immigrants qualified for sickness benefits and maternity pay
  • Work and Pensions Department did not ask for work permits when assessing certain claims
Tens of thousands of workers with no right to be in Britain have been claiming benefits thanks to an extraordinary loophole in the law.
Ministers have discovered that Labour allowed 155,000 illegal immigrants to qualify for sickness benefits and maternity pay. Government sources put the cost to the public purse at ‘tens of millions of pounds’.
They say the shambles is a damning indictment of how Labour lost control of both the benefits and immigration systems with taxpayers left to foot the bill. Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith will outlaw the practice in welfare reform legislation expected to be unveiled this week.
Benefits: Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith will plug the loophole which gives benefits to thousands who have no right to be in Britain

Ministers believe most of those abusing the system came to work in Britain for a limited period and overstayed their visa. Others managed to get a job without a work permit.
At present, someone could be illegally in the UK and able to claim Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), paid to those too sick to work, as well as statutory payments such as maternity or paternity pay and sick pay.

Astonishingly, the Work and Pensions Department has not in the past asked to see work permits when assessing claims for ESA.
Employers, meanwhile, have not been asked to show proof that workers are in Britain legally when processing claims for maternity or paternity pay or sick pay.

A Whitehall source said: ‘It cannot be right that people who aren’t eligible to work here can get benefits that are a substitute for earnings.
‘This is a classic example of where the welfare system has been allowed to get completely out of control. It is difficult to track because these are illegal workers, but the cost is likely to be in the tens of millions.
‘Clearly it’s incredibly unfair and ministers are acting to legislate to close the loophole as quickly as possible.
'Work permits showing people are here legally will be needed for ESA claims or an employer will have to show one when they are putting claims through.
'The Bill we are bringing forward will start the root-and-branch overhaul needed to put fairness back at the heart of the system.’
Hundreds of thousands of National Insurance numbers were handed out under Labour to illegal workers as, alarmingly, there was no requirement on JobCentre staff to check whether a person was in the country legally.
Many employers wrongly believed that having an NI number meant foreign staff were allowed to work in the UK.
Illegal workers should not be eligible for any state-funded benefit, housing, or anything other than emergency NHS treatment. At the moment, a ‘habitual residency test’ is used to establish whether migrants are eligible for other types of benefit.
To qualify for jobseeker’s allowance, employment support allowance, pension credit and income support, they must demonstrate that they have either worked or have a good opportunity to get a job.

However, the European Commission has warned ministers that the rules may infringe the human rights of EU citizens and are ‘not compatible’ with EU law. It has started legal proceedings against Britain to have restrictions on welfare claims by incomers scrapped.
The Welfare Reform Bill, ministers say, will bring an end to the complex, costly and inefficient series of benefits and tax credits, replacing them with a single universal credit. Cuts to housing and disability benefits will also be confirmed.
The scale of the welfare challenge facing Britain is laid bare today in figures which show at least 330,000 children – around one in 30 – are growing up with a parent claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance.
Mr Duncan Smith said: ‘We know that family is the most important influence on a child’s life, so it is no surprise that with this many children growing up with parents on unemployment benefits we are facing intergenerational worklessness and benefit dependency on such a massive scale.
‘Our broken welfare system has reinforced this destructive cycle for generations.’

Muslim sex offenders are asking to be let off a prison treatment programme on religious grounds.

Rapists, paedophiles and other dangerous attackers are expected to discuss their crimes with other inmates as a condition of release.
But Muslim prisoners complain that criminals should not have to talk about their offences - a "legitimate Islamic position", according to Ahtsham Ali, the Prison Service's Muslim adviser.
One thousand inmates were put on the Sex Offender Treatment Programme last year with places usually reserved for the most dangerous attackers.
Failure to complete the course can weigh against an offender at parole hearings.
The possibility of an exemption for Muslims came to light in a letter from an unnamed inmate to Inside Time, a newspaper for prisoners.
The convict said: "I have always insisted that it was against Islamic teachings to discuss your offence to anyone, let alone act it out within a peer group."
Experts said ministers, who have launched a review of the issue, could face a legal challenge from Muslims kept longer in prison because they had not undergone the treatment programme.
Harry Fletcher, of the probation union Napo, said: "If they do not take part, Muslim sex offenders are likely to serve longer sentences, possibly the whole of their term, before they are released."
Nick Herbert, Tory justice spokesman, said: "There can be no religious discrimination when it comes to deciding the appropriate and safe time to release a prisoner.
"In any case, all prisoners, regardless of religion, should have their release made conditional on their behaviour and progress in custody, not be given automatic release at the half-way mark."

A Prison Service spokesman said officials were seeking to ensure the treatment programme was sensitive to "the diversity of religions within the prison context".

"Membership of a particular religion is not a bar to participation in accredited programmes," she insisted, adding that offenders were carefully vetted to ensure they were suitable candidates for the course.

Just one in five immigration offenders kicked out of UK

Thousands of immigration offenders are being allowed to escape deportation every year, Government figures reveal.
The asylum system is supposed to take a strict stance against those who are caught living in the UK illegally.
But fewer than one in five of those who claimed asylum only after they were caught living here without permission have been kicked out.
Incredibly, more are being given permission to stay than are being removed.
Critics said the figures showed how the previous Labour government had turned Britain into a ‘soft touch’ for illegal immigrants.
In the past three years alone, only 7,294 of the 40,000 who claimed asylum after being caught breaking immigration rules were kicked out.
This compared with 9,869 - one in four - who were told they could stay. The remainder have either yet to have their cases decided or have dropped out of the system.
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of MigrationWatch, said: ‘These are astonishing figures.
‘These people entered illegally in the first place without bothering to claim asylum, so they can hardly be prime candidates.
‘Despite that, a quarter of them were granted some sort of protection.
‘Worse still, of all those detected, less than one in five have actually been removed. No wonder Britain is considered a soft touch and people are queuing in Calais to get here.’
The Home Office figures, obtained by Tory MP Priti Patel, detail what happens to people who are caught living in Britain illegally.
They can be caught trying to enter the country in the back of lorries, or using other clandestine methods. Alternatively, they may have entered legally then overstayed their visas.
Both categories are entitled to claim asylum when they are picked up by the authorities. However, the UK Border Agency is instructed to take a dim view of anybody caught in these circumstances.
Normally, there is a suspicion that anybody who does not claim asylum within a short time of entering the country may not be a genuine refugee.
One of the difficulties faced by the UK Border Agency is having enough staff to track down failed asylum seekers once they have been ordered to leave.

Staff are told to prioritise those who pose the greatest danger to the public. That means foreign criminals are at the front of the queue.
The UKBA is preparing to axe 5,000 jobs over the next four years. This has led to concerns there will be even fewer staff dedicated to ­asylum removals.
In a blistering report published last February, the Parliamentary ombudsman laid the blame at the door of the last government.
Ann Abraham said Labour was a ‘very long way’ from running a fast and fair immigration system that deports foreigners with no right to live here.
She found delays and incompetence at almost every level of the asylum and immigration process - with backlogs running to hundreds of thousands of cases.
The ombudsman warned the situation is such a shambles that illegal immigrants could soon benefit from an obscure rule which says those who avoid removal for 14 years can apply to stay here permanently.

BNP Haters Beware, We Are The British (Vote BNP ✔ 2015)

The taste of multiculturalism

Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

It took a lot of courage for  this woman to speak what she had to say for the world to  hear.  The retribution could be phenomenal, but at  least she was willing to take a stand on her and Australia 's beliefs. 

Muslims  who want to live under Islamic Sharia law  were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the  government targeted radicals in a bid to head off  potential terror attacks.. 
Separately, Gillard angered  some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she  supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.  Quote:
   'IMMIGRANTS,  NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.  I  am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are  offending some individual or their culture. Since the  terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge  in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ' 
'This culture has been developed over two  centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions  of men and women who have sought freedom' 
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish,  Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any  other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of  our society . Learn the language!'
'Most  Australians  believe in God. This is not some Christian,  right wing, political push, but a fact, because  Christian men and women, on Christian principles,  founded this nation, and this is clearly documented It  is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of  our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you  consider another part of the world as your new home,  because God is part of our culture.'
'We  will accept your beliefs, and will not question why All  we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and  peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR  COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow  you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you  are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our  Way of Life, I highly encourage you take  advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE  RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
   'If you  aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to  come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country  YOU accepted.'

Criminal checks on people working with children to be eased

More than half of the 9 million people who have needed criminal record checks to work with children and vulnerable adults are to be freed from the burden under new legislation.
The move – part of the coalition government's plans to scale back Labour's "over-intrusive" vetting and barring scheme to "commonsense levels" – is included in the protection of freedoms bill, which is being launched by the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg. It is designed to roll back "unwarranted state intrusion in private lives" through the use of CCTV, local authority surveillance powers and the police DNA database.
The decision to "very significantly curtail" the vetting and barring scheme will mean that only those in sensitive posts or who have intensive contact with children or vulnerable adults will need to be cleared and undergo criminal record checks.
It is thought this will affect about half the 9 million people currently required to register so they can be continuously monitored while working with other people's children or vulnerable adults .
The changes are expected to be introduced in about 18 months if, as expected, the bill reaches the statute book early next year.
The vetting and barring system was introduced in the wake of the inquiry into the murders of Soham schoolgirls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells in 2002.
The home secretary, Theresa May, suspended the need for new job applicants to register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) last June pending a review of the scheme.
The new legislation makes several changes to the scheme as a result of the overhaul of the checking regime:
• The Criminal Records Bureau and the ISA are to be merged to form a streamlined body to provide a "proportionate" barring and criminal records checking service.
• The number of positions requiring checks will be restricted to those working most closely and regularly with children and vulnerable adults.
• Criminal records checks will be transferred between jobs to cut down on needless bureaucracy.
• An end to the need for those working with vulnerable groups to register with the vetting and barring scheme and be continuously monitored by the ISA.
• Penalties for those who knowingly request unlawful criminal record checks.
Ministers say they will continue to maintain a list of all those barred from working with children and vulnerable adults, but they want to ensure the new framework underpinning barring decisions is robust and fully supports the protection of vulnerable people.
Clegg said: "We inherited a messy criminal records regime that developed piecemeal for years and defied common sense. Our reviews concluded that the systems were not proportionate and needed to be less bureaucratic. They will now be scaled back to sensible levels while at the same time protecting vulnerable people."
The deputy prime minster said the Labour government had engaged in a 13-year long assault on hard-won British freedoms: "The coalition government is determined to hand them back to the people."
The plans for a "freedom bill" were first proposed by Clegg four years ago when he was the Liberal Democrats' home affairs spokesman.
Other key elements include:
• Regulation of CCTV cameras and the police's automatic number plate recognition scheme for the first time.
• Scaling back the police DNA database so it no longer holds the profiles of those who have not been convicted of any offence.
• Local authority surveillance powers will be restricted to the investigation of serious crime and exclude the enforcement of school catchment areas or checks on rubbish bins.
• The removal of convictions for consensual gay sex from police databases.

Public Won't Take Cuts Lying Down!

"We've had enough already!" Was the regularly repeated response from the public to our leafleting teams across Shropshire as our activists put out new 'Shropshire Partiot' leaflets highlighting the devestating cuts to such things as local jobs, local services and local schools which are set to bite hard in the run up to the 2013 Shropshire County Council elections.

Public anger is increasing dramatically, and a number of Shropshire residents called for more militant action against what many are regarding as an oppressive government regime.

And while the British National Party is set to become more militant, our party's main aim is to take public anger and channel it into peaceful but direct protest.

"It's disgraceful that the Con-Dem coalition is increasing Foreign Aid but at the same time depriving local councils of the funds they need to maintain and improve local services," said North Shropshire British National Party organiser Phil Reddall. "Local County councillors hold their hands up and act as if they can do nothing but make cuts, but these County councillors are part of the same anti-British rotten system that is pouring money into the Third World while our own children worry about whether they will have a local school to attend next year," he continued.

A middle aged resident of Market Drayton summed it up perfectly during a leafleting session last night when he said, "I don't mind helping out other nations with my tax money from time to time but if I see one child upset because his or her school closes around here then my vote will go to the British National Party."

BNP - EU-Real Democracy World Food Shortages.


THE youngest victim of an Asian sex gang in Britain was just eight, the Daily Star can reveal.

Her parents had to move house to keep the child out of the clutches of the mob who scoured their streets hunting white girls to abuse.

She was among a number of children being groomed by the gang of mainly British-born Pakistani Muslims in Huddersfield, West Yorks.

The shocking case was revealed by Gill Gibbons, chief executive of the Coalition for the Removal of Pimping, who helped the youngster and her parents handle the horrific ordeal. The organisation has also worked with a gang victim aged only 10 in Blackburn, Lancs.

Ms Gibbons said although the victims were getting younger, most were not sexually abused until they were 13 in a bid to get round the law.

Girls over that age have to make complaints against their abusers themselves before authorities take action and the thugs are confident they can frighten the young teens off.

“The girls are getting younger,” said Ms Gibbons. “Some kids can look a lot older than they actually are. We once dealt with an eight-year-old girl.

“In these cases there hasn’t been any sex with the girls but the gangs try to indoctrinate them and get them ready for when they are a bit older.”

The organisation, which is in the frontline of the battle against sex gangs, has appointed parent officer Lindsay Dalton to help families of victims.

Gill said: “It is not only the children who are victims but the whole family become victims of these criminal gangs.”

Britain is 'one of most undemocratic countries in Europe'

Britain may have the Mother of Parliaments, but  in a new study on democracy in 30 countries it is close to the bottom of the table which is headed by Denmark.
Germany is more democratic than France, Britain and even Switzerland, according to the study by the University of Zurich and the government-funded Social Science Research Centre in Berlin.
Surprisingly Belgium is ranked as the third most democratic country in the group, even though it has now been without a government for more than seven months.
Despite having the Mother of Parliaments, the British system has some 'significant flaws'. according to a new study of democracy
Despite having the Mother of Parliaments, the British system has some 'significant flaws', according to a new study of democracy
The 'democracy barometer' measures how well 30 established democracies implement freedom and equality.
Denmark, Finland and Belgium have the world's best functioning democracies,   while Britain languishes in 26th position and France is  one place behind.
The study concludes that  despite having the 'Mother of Parliaments',  the British system has some 'significant flaws'.
It says: 'The problems lie mainly in three key areas: majority representation in parliament, which creates distortion between votes and actual seats in parliament, a media that is skewed by private-sector interests, and declining trust in the police.'
Project leader Wolfgang Merkel of the German research team told news magazine Der Spiegel: 'It was designed to go deeper than whether a country holds free and fair elections, but not to go deep into individual governmental policies.'
He said the study, which spanned the years 1995 to 2005, looked at the kind of control citizens have over their government. Nine other criteria were examined, including the rule of law, transparency of government and participation in the political process.
Germany came in at 11th place, just behind the U.S., gaining points for its number of female legislators and because of its strict separation of powers between two parliamentary houses.


Here is how the countries fared on a scale of 1 to 100.

Denmark: 88.3
Finland: 87.7
Belgium: 85.1
Iceland: 83.5
Sweden: 82.9
Norway: 82.1
Canada: 79.4
Netherlands: 79.0
Luxembourg: 75.2
USA: 74.9
Germany: 73.2
New Zealand: 72.1
Slovenia: 69.6
Switzerland: 67.8
Ireland: 67.0
Portugal: 66.7
Spain: 66.6
Australia: 65.5
Hungary: 63.2
Austria: 63.1
Czech Republic: 58.2
Italy: 57.0
Cyprus: 55.5
Malta: 54.2
Japan: 45.8
Great Britain: 44.6
France: 42.8
Poland: 42.0
South Africa: 39.8
Costa Rica: 32.7
'The frequent opportunities for veto by the upper house and by the constitutional court restrict governmental power,' said Mr Merkel.
By contrast, women are underrepresented in Switzerland's political system, which ranks at number 16. In addition, Switzerland has a smaller voter turnout among lower-income groups.
'Our democracy barometer highlights the best practice of some of the most successful democracies, but it does not disguise areas in which progress still needs to be made,' added Mr Merkel.
The barometer‘measured nine quality indicators: the protection of personal freedom from infringements by third parties, especially the state; the rule of law; an active citizenship; transparency; participation; representation; political competition; a system of checks and balances; and the ability to implement democratic decisions.
The 11-year study also revealed that the democracies in Poland, South Africa and Costa Rica are the lowest in quality. Switzerland, with its systems of referendums, came a poor 14th.
Project co-leader Marc Buhlmann from Zurich University said Swiss democracy was only average because its 'system of checks and balances, transparency and participation are only very poorly implemented'.
On the other hand, Switzerland is a 'model country when it comes to satisfying the criteria of personal liberties, an active citizenship, competition and governmental capability', he added.
The study also said: 'Positive developments are apparent in younger democracies such as South Africa and Cyprus, which are making up a lot of ground in terms of developing and protecting personal liberties, whilst a decline was evident in George W. Bush's America and Silvio Berlusconi's Italy.'

London embassy protesters demand sharia law amid continuing chaos in Egypt

  • Hundreds protest outside Egyptian embassy in central London
  • UK government complains to Egypt over text messages seen to instigate violence
  • Britons fleeing violence tell of machete-wielding vigilantes and escaped prisoners roaming 'war zone'
Protesters waving placards calling for Islamic law to be imposed in Egypt have demonstrated outside the country's embassy in London.
For several days, a peaceful protest has seen hundreds of ex-patriots and supporters of regime change mass outside the embassy in the centre of the capital.
Today, brandishing signs such as 'democracy will bring oppression' and 'Islam is the solution for Egypt', women in burkas were joined by men in traditional dress for a rally calling for sharia law to be imposed.

Behind barricades, holding flags aloft,  they faced a line of uniformed police in the quiet streets of central London, far from the chaos of Tahrir -  Liberation - Square in Cairo.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: 'There are approximately 300 people there, all cooperative and good-natured.'

The demonstrations - in varying numbers - have been going on for several days, as crisis has engulfed Egypt and claimed the scalp of President Hosni Mubarak.
The previously peaceful protests in Cairo turned violent once the long-time head of state announced his intention to stand down at the next election, with his supporters clashing with those who want the 82-year-old to step aside immediately.
Many waved banners declaring 'Now!' - a reference to their demand for President Mubarak to go immediately, and not linger for months as he insists he must to ensure a peaceful transition.

The 82-year-old president himself has insisted he will serve out the remaining seven months of his term to ensure a stable process.
'You don't understand the Egyptian culture and what would happen if I step down now,' Mubarak said he told President Barack Obama. He warned in an interview with ABC News that chaos would ensue.
The upsurge in violence led Europe's leaders to deliver a warning to the Egyptian authorities today to answer their people with 'political reform, not repression'.
The statement agreed at a Brussels EU summit stopped short of calling on President Hosni Mubarak to step aside.
Instead it challenged the regime to honour the terms of a £150 million-a-year EU 'Association Agreement', under which Egypt is committed to push through political and economic reforms in return for trade concessions and financial aid.

The EU statement came as Barack Obama's administration said it was in talks with Egyptian officials about the possibility of Mubarak resigning straight away, and the formation of an interim government before free and fair elections later this year.
The text urged the Egyptian authorities 'to meet the aspirations of the Egyptian people with political reform, not repression'.
It said: 'All parties should show restraint and avoid further violence and begin an orderly transition to a broad-based government.
'The European Council underlined that this transition process must start now.'
The UK government has complained to Egypt after Vodafone Group Plc was ordered to send text messages seen to instigate violence as demonstrators demanded the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.
Britain's Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt contacted the Egyptian ambassador in London to discuss the order to Vodafone after the company reached out to the government, the Foreign Office said last night. 
British Foreign Secretary William Hague yesterday issued a statement calling the 'abuse' of Internet and mobile-phone networks 'unacceptable and disturbing'.

Britons fleeing the violence on a Foreign Office-chartered flight told of the chaos in the country.
Shukria Ahmed-Nur, 16, told how marauding thugs terrorised the streets near where she lived.
She said: 'There were men with samurai swords, machetes and other weapons.
'They were outside our apartments, walking up and down the stairs, which was really scary.
'We were just hoping we would get out alive.'
Mother-of-two Jala Ibrahim, 33, from Fulham, west London, said: 'The country is in a really bad state at the moment. It's a bit like a war zone but the people are fighting for their rights.'
Stephanie Harkin, 25, a teacher from Luton, Bedfordshire, said: 'Our main problem was prisoners escaping from a nearby prison. We had a lot of men outside our house and so we had to create a makeshift neighbourhood watch.
'We had to sleep with knives by us as well. Across the road on the next compound there were reports that seven people had been killed and that neighbours had been attacked by thieves.'
The Committee to Protect Journalists, a New York-based media watchdog, said it had recorded 24 detentions of journalists, 21 assaults and five cases in which equipment was detained over a 24-hour period.
European leaders have urged Egyptian authorities to protect reporters covering the country's crisis.
The call came as a Swedish TV journalist was reported to be in a serious condition after being stabbed.
