A couple of weeks ago Lord Ahmed also made headlines by being convicted for dangerous driving. He had been involved in a fatal accident after sending text messages whilst driving, and was sentenced to three months in jail. But — surprise! — his sentence was reduced, and now he has been released after serving a measly sixteen days of his sentence.
His lawyer successfully argued that his client’s continued incarceration would negatively impact his ability to serve his community, so Lord Ahmed is once again a free man.
Needless to say, not everyone in the UK is sanguine about this particular instance of British “justice”. The comments at Old Holborn are particularly ripe, and mostly not reproducible in a PG-13 blog environment.
However, one magnificent comment left by “The Honest Version of Vera Baird” is worth reproducing in its entirety, with a few strategic asterisks inserted to ensure propriety:
Everything’s f**ked. We welcomed these Muslims with open arms, because we have a common enemy: conservatism, freedom of thought, freedom of speech, the old values of the democratic age. We thought they would help us build the new age of post-democracy; job security and fat pensions for us, communitarianism for you, and “social justice” for all.- - - - - - - - -
We knew we’d be able to call our enemies Islamophobic when they objected to multiculturalism and immigration. We turned a blind eye to the anti-feminist abuses of Islam, because the ends justify the means, and anything that helps us dismantle the last traces of a “free country” is a good thing. Every law that bans “hate speech” — or any type of speech — is a victory for us.
But the project has gone wrong. The Islamists are more powerful than us now. We have to do what they say. And now, we literally let them get away with murder. The monster has turned on its maker.
However, we are telling you about this. We are making it obvious now. Our interference in the process of justice is plain. You can all see that the Islamists can do what they like, and we dare not stand against them. We banned Wilders so that you would watch his film. We released Ahmed so that you would know that the law is powerless against him. We protect the Islamist “anti-war protesters” and arrest you if you bother them. We are sending you a message.
Because we do not have the courage to do anything. That will be your job. We are washing our hands of the whole business. We think it is too late to come up with a peaceful solution. The beast is loose.
After the new Holocaust has wiped out England’s Muslims, including the peaceful majority who are not Islamists, then we will say “It wasn’t us! It was the BNP, and the people who voted for them!”
Even though it was our fault, because we allowed Islamism to flourish in our arrogance. We gave seats in Parliament to the Islamofascists, and we gave police protection and favourable media coverage to the terrorists. And, at the last moment, with Sharia looming and the global Caliphate being assembled, we forced you to choose between Nick Griffin and Islam. And you chose one type of fascism over the other.
Nobody can rant like the British. Nobody.
