Multiculturalism Has Destroyed the British Police

Paul Weston has done some extensive research on the current state of British law enforcement, and the result is not encouraging. His report is below.


Multiculturalism Has Destroyed the British Police
by Paul Weston


ConstableMight you be one of those ambitious, clean-limbed, stout-hearted chaps who wish to combine a healthy outdoor career with genuine social do-goodery? You are? My dear fellow! Have you perchance considered the Police Service? It could be just the place for you!

Are you 5 feet 8 inches or longer and aged between 19 and 30? Do you hold at least five “O”-levels including maths and English? Are you the possessor of all your own teeth but not a criminal record? If so, you are qualified to attend an interview for potential recruitment to the… Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force.

What’s that you say? You’re only 4 feet 9 inches, and more than a little rotund? No problem old chap, jump on this here aeroplane, if indeed you can actually jump of course, and we’ll take you somewhere with less exacting requirements; a place where you can swap sunshine and samba for drizzle and depression; a place where discrimination toward the vertically challenged is looked down on from the lofty heights of tolerance and diversity; an egalitarian place where the inability to peer atop the sergeant’s desk is no impediment to becoming a boy in blue. Let us go to Britain, the founder of an empire where once the sun never set, latterly reduced to a little Socialist Island where now the sun rarely rises.

You would like to come, but feel your possession of a criminal record might hold you back? Fiddlesticks and piffle dear boy, fiddlesticks and piffle. The British Police Service will not allow such a trifling matter to stand in your way. You are 53 years old? Good Lord, you look barely a day over 40, but inconsequential, dear boy, inconsequential. We Brits are very keen on diversity, even of the ageist variety. The London Metropolitan Police will recruit almost up to state retirement age, and especially so, if I may mention it, when dignified age is carried off with such wonderful aplomb by a… you know… a black person!

No academic qualifications either? Not a problem in the slightest old boy! In modern, caring, socialist Britain such elitist and bourgeois statements of a privileged upbringing carry very little weight. Lookee here my good man, swing this club at that passing pedestrian over there. Yes, the aristocratic looking one. No no, not the young one. The elderly petite lady, that’s the one, the grey old bird who looks as though she may have ridden to hounds in her youth… the slow mover… look sharpish laddie, she’s spotted you… GOT HER BY JOVE!

My dear chap that’s some arm on you! Perhaps you were an opening batsman in your youth, what what? No? You surprise me! Ah, quite, quite, cricket not allowed in prison, of course not, remiss of me old boy, remiss of me. Never mind my dear chap, never mind. I assume you have all your own teeth, the only essential requirement we ask of prospective British policemen these days? You do? Excellent, excellent, sign here, here and here. A thumbprint? Of course dear boy, a thumbprint is fine! And welcome to Britain… Constable Kaunda!

Ha ha, but the depth of depravity to which the British Police Service has been politically driven is of tremendous concern to all but our ruling elites. Whilst St Vincent is an admirable nation, it is nonetheless one which owes its living to the nurturing and selling of bananas. Britain is supposed to exist on a higher plane than such states, yet the majority of British policemen could never qualify for the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force.

It really is true that St Vincent has exacting requirements for its police recruits, and it really is true that the British police require next to nothing. And the reason for this is staggeringly ironic — Britain has drastically lowered its police entry requirements, even to the point of overlooking criminal records, in order to recruit a higher proportion of ethnic minorities. The British police now recruit immigrants who are not even British citizens, provided they have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

We do check whether a newly arrived immigrant from Somalia or the Sudan has a criminal record relating to rape, murder or genocide, but the reality is we have absolutely no idea as to the true identity of the man in question. With our home-grown ethnic minorities, it is important that certain criminal records are overlooked because despite making up only a purported 10% of Britain’s population, they punch well above their proportional weight when it comes to criminality, thus ensuring their admittance as 25-30% (pdf) of the prison population, whilst a full 77% of young black males have been arrested for suspected criminal offences and entered into the police database.

The irony of course is that the St Vincent Police Force, with all its stringent character requirements, recruits only nationals from St Vincent, who are, quite naturally, black. If Britain had not allowed the liberal/left to destroy its educational system, religion, morality, the family, and most importantly, the economically poor, fatherhood-poor black family, perhaps we could emulate the noble St Vincentonians, but alas we lost the war against the progressive policies of the liberal/left some years ago and must now recruit from a far less qualified ethnic minority base.

There was a time when the British police entry standards were as high as those of St Vincent. There was a minimum height requirement, 5 “O”-levels were needed, criminal records were not overlooked and physical fitness was a pre-requisite. But multiculturalism and socialism have turned the traditional and decent Britain of the recent past on its head.

A quick glance at the Metropolitan Police Authority recruitment targets for 2009-10 reveals the liberal insanity that has taken over this pitiful Island. 27% of all new police recruits must be “black and minority ethnic” (BME) and 41% must be female.

West Midlands Police Authority has seized upon such directives with glee. What would once have been called racial and sexual discrimination against white males is now called Positive Action, which is why the police are able to recruit black and ethnic minorities in far higher percentage terms than their population warrants.

White males will account for a mere 30% of new Metropolitan Police recruits over the next three years, but unfortunately for the powers that be, it is still white males who overwhelmingly apply to join. The result is that they are simply turned away, and the reason given, with no hint of hypocrisy or shame, is because they are white. In 2006, two thirds of white males were turned down for interview by Gloucester Police, whilst every single ethnic minority and female was accepted (for interview).
- - - - - - - - -
Looking at the police recruitment site today is profoundly depressing. The fact that no academic qualifications are needed becomes apparent when we are told that 60% of applicants fail at the first hurdle. Such large numbers suggest perhaps that the applicants were unable to translate Homer’s Iliad into modern Greek, but this, alas, is not quite the case. The 60% of aspiring plods weeded out at stage one are discarded because they lack the ability… to fill out the application form correctly!

This most extraordinary admission becomes even more appalling when one discovers the police recruitment department will sell you a DVD full of useful tips on becoming a police officer, including a section on How-To-Fill-Out-The-Application-Form-Correctly.

Should you manage to gouge out your name, address, and conviction date correctly, you may be asked to progress to the next level, where your physical fitness will be evaluated. Gone are the days of running a mile in seven minutes and doing 50 push-ups. Today you need only be “reasonably fit and able to run short distances fairly quickly.” I assume this requirement is more geared toward escape than pursuit.

The next stage is whether or not you can actually speak the language of the people you wish to police. The only requirement here is that you have mastered enough English to “Write short reports and potentially give evidence in court.”

The London Metropolitan Police do not beat around the bush in terms of identifying potential recruits. They are not looking for burly yeomen who can face up to crowds of baying, drunken youths on Saturday nights, but people who display the correct political attitudes. Providing one is aged between 18 and 57 — yes, you read 57 correctly — then the Met Police’s number one priority in personal qualities is Respect For Diversity.

This perverse pandering to ethnic minorities does not just stop there; it continues out into the streets where ethnic criminals are given the old softly-softly approach. Stop and Search is one of those thorny ethnic issues which so excite the liberal/left, who think it racist to disproportionately stop young black males in order to frisk them for knives. Black parents on the other hand are all in favour of it, not wishing their sons to be stabbed to death in the epidemic of knife crime UK that is overwhelmingly black on black.

The police have an intriguing way to get around this. They simply stop white youths, in the full knowledge they are innocent, to thus provide a racial balance. They also take instruction from young “streetwise” ethnic gang members, who despite a history of carrying weapons and assaulting police officers, tell the self-same police what street slang and behaviour they should adopt in order to be as inoffensive as possible whilst searching them for weapons they use to kill one another with. The police do this in order to “Command Respect.”

But blacks do not sit at the top of the grievance tree in Britain. For such an elevated position at the peak of the racial/religious ziggurat we must turn to Islam. It is proposed that British police officers should learn about Sharia law and the Koran, in order to better police the Islamic community.

The reason for this is because it is incumbent upon the police to further the relationship with those who wish to blow us up and take us over. Particularly with regard to “moderate Muslims” who have such a hard time living in democratic Britain they are apparently forced to think of the police as their enemy. In the words of Shipley Conservative MP, Philip Davies:

“Research last year revealed that the police service would be very low on the list of agencies that the Muslim community would turn to if they had concerns about a member of their community who embraced violent extremism. The police service has a long way to go in building a relationship of trust around these issues.”

Really? If the Muslim community suspected one of their neighbours intended to massacre hundreds of innocent people on the tube, then the police would be just about the last people they would tell? And it is up to the police to build a relationship of trust with these moderate people?

Well yes, as it happens. West Yorkshire Chief Constable Norman Bettison couched it thus:

“We work closely with communities and the majority of police training at the moment in this area is done in partnership with Muslim organisations.”

Muslim policeCan it get any worse? Of course it can! How about dressing up English policewomen in full-on Muslim garb to better understand the utter hell that is the life of Muslim women living in intolerant Britain? Called operation In Your Shoes Day, white policewomen wandered around Sheffield looking like mini Darth Vaders sans light sabres, at the behest of South Yorkshire Police, where they were variously stared at by security guards hoping to Allah they were not shoplifters in need of a good old frisking, not to mention nervous bus drivers.

A police spokesman (how terribly sexist is that in Britain’s modern, go ahead police service) defended this exercise in liberal lunacy as:

“Just one of many activities South Yorkshire Police have planned with communities and ethnic minority leaders, to secure strong relationships, celebrate diversity and encourage integration (whose, I wonder?) working towards a safer, closer society.”

I am not too sure about the safer bit though. Muslim women are desperately sought after as Police Community Support Officers, but Muslim women hardly have an international reputation as surfer/swimmer babes, what with their apparel being more conducive to sinking than floating. Members of a police force who could not swim would have been unthinkable a few years ago, but not so today, where it is easier to drop the swimming requirement from police training rather than appear discriminatory toward swathed sinkers.

As always though, there are consequences to such liberal perversities — witness the death by drowning of ten-year-old Jordan Lyon in 2007, whilst a police community support officer observed from the banks of the pond as he/she consulted his/her health and safety pamphlet whilst a colleague ran to summon help.

They were defended by their superiors who claimed: “It would have been inappropriate for PCSOs, who are not trained in water rescue, to enter the pond.“ Tell that to the mother of Jordan Lyon, a mere boy who had entered the pond to save his sister and sacrificed his own life in the attempt, whilst two adults could not be held to the same standard. In the subsequent inquest they were not even required to attend the court. One wonders why, especially as their names and photographs have never been made public. Or perhaps one doesn’t wonder at all.

Another consequence unforeseen only by the liberal/left is not just the sheer uselessness of people recruited from the bottom of the barrel, but also their slightly less than honest attitudes. In 2006, the Guardian reported on an internal London Metropolitan Police report which found complaints of corruption aimed at “Asian” officers to be ten times higher than complaints against their white colleagues.

Amongst the PCSOs, who were introduced to tackle anti-social crime whilst bolstering the recruitment rates of Blacks, Muslims, women and the transgendered, gross misconduct cases account for 50% all cases within the forces, despite their making up only one fifth of the recruits. They are employed ONLY to make up ethnic and minority numbers. In terms of crime fighting they solve only one crime every four years and issue fines for anti-social behaviour at the rate of 1.5 per year.

And while the British police self-destruct in order to prove their non-racist credentials, their entire institution is awash with cries of “racism” and “prejudice.” Take the case of Assistant Chief Constable Anil Patani for example. When he was overlooked for promotion back in his sergeant days, he sued for racial discrimination. When he was promoted later in his career, he sued again, this time because he had been over-promoted because of his race, and was thus viewed with some bitterness by his colleagues who of course no longer liked him, indeed hated him. Anil Patani’s finest moment came when he tried to prosecute Channel Four for inciting racial hatred by daring to produce and broadcast the “Undercover Mosques” programme.

Commander Ali Dizaei was once destined for the very top. Today he is suspended under an impending charge of Perverting the Course of Justice. Dizaei’s whole career has been built around race. He was President of the National Black Police Association and race advisor to the Home Secretary (does not race advisor to Adolf Hitler sound more appropriate?) before his life became embroiled around corruption charges.

In 2008 Britain’s most senior Muslim officer, Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, sued his boss and Britain’s most senior police officer, Commissioner Ian Blair, over racism charges. Ghaffur was paid out and Sir Ian Blair resigned shortly afterwards. In the fallout that followed, the National Black Police Association took out full page adverts in newspapers, asking that ethnic minorities cease applying to join the police.

What total, utter, multicultural madness. But the biggest tragedy is what now happens on Britain’s streets as our police services sue and counter sue; attend race and diversity workshops, gender swap awareness courses and fill out 50 page racial incident documents in triplicate as to why they stopped and searched known black murderer Delroy Shanker in the early hours of May 15th.

The result of such insanity is that the police now manage a mere 6 hours a week actually out on the beat. They have effectively withdrawn from the streets, which have been taken over by lawless feral youths. They make fleeting appearances in order to arrest members of the general public who have the temerity to retaliate against their persecutors, but by and large the streets are now ruled by the underclass. Britain is not a country to be weak in.

The tragic case of Fiona Pilkington is the saddest story I have read in many years. A slightly backward mother, with variously backward children, poor Mrs Pilkington lacked the financial resources to live where liberal progressives live, and so was forced to share her life with the welfare-benefit classes whose morality has been destroyed by years of liberal progressive destruction. Stones and bricks were thrown through her windows and fireworks pushed through her letter box. Her young son was locked in a garden shed and threatened at knife-point, her daughter subjected to verbal and physical abuse.

Poor, tormented, mentally tortured Fiona Pilkington called the Leicestershire Police 33 times over a ten year period, but they never helped her. Not once. Eventually she bundled her daughter and herself into the vandalised family car, set fire to it, and departed to a place where one can only hope her tacit murderers will never gain admission via its pearly gates.

The police blamed the council, the council blamed the police. The chief of police did not resign. Imagine though, if the Pilkingtons had been black? I know this is a tired old cliché, but it is important to point out that since the Macpherson report the most important thing on the minds of coppers from Constables to Commissioners is to never, ever fail to give your undivided attention to a perceived racial incident. It is a career and pension killer, unlike the failure to take seriously the decade long persecution of a weak and vulnerable white woman and her children.

Leicestershire Constabulary (motto: Providing a second to none police service) takes its diversity guidelines very seriously. Commanded by temporary Chief Constable Chris Eyre who represented the East Midlands ACPO Asylum and Immigration Group, their National Disabled Police Association blurb informs us that one of their aims is to “Build trust and confidence between disabled people and the police service to improve community cohesion.” They also tell us they work to “Best Practice.” I don’t think so, Chief Constable Eyre.

The Guardian agonised as to why disability hate crimes were not taken as seriously as racial or gender based hate crimes, never pausing to think that Mrs Pilkington did not need to be a member of a politically designated oppressed minority to qualify for police help. Memo to Guardian readers, police officers heading up diversity divisions, and other such liberal/leftists who appear utterly devoid of the smallest scrap of human decency — Mrs Pilkington was a cruelly tortured and suffering Human Being in desperate need of help. Capiche?

Contrast this with another story published the same week. 71-year-old, disabled, German born pensioner Renate Bowling was arrested, thrown into the back of a police van and prosecuted for assault. Why? Because she had prodded a 17-year-old youth in the chest after he and his gang had thrown stones at her windows. When she caught him hiding behind a wall he called her a “f***ing German” which one would have thought constituted a racial offence, and certainly would if Germans were not quite so annoyingly white and Aryan. He was not arrested, of course.

Or what about the pensioner arrested for shouting at yobs who were stoning ducks on a canal, or the retired military police officer who has erected an electrified fence around his home after police ignored his 999 calls as paving slabs were hurled into his garden, or the woman advised by the police not to call them again as it would only escalate the problem despite the fact she had been punched to the floor of her own home by a gang of youths?

And on and on and on. It is unusual to get to the end of one day, let alone an entire week, without reading reports of women being assaulted, men being beaten to death by packs of liberally educated youths, and innocents of the wrong race, religion or class being arrested by the police on matters of utter inconsequence.

And these are only the stories that make the news. Every Brit today will tell you it is unsafe to go out in town centres after dark, and that the local police are worse than useless. Have you had much contact with Britain’s modern policemen? If you live in a town it is likely you never see them anymore, and even more likely that the local police station is not open in the evenings or weekends, or has been sold off and converted into a trendy urban live/work space. Over 500 police stations have been lost since 1992.

The reason for the decline of the British copper is very simple. Britain’s socialist government has converted — under the cover of multicultural compassion — what was once the Great British Police Force into one that is useless when it comes to protecting law abiding tax-payers, but highly efficient as the virtual paramilitary wing of a political movement which has ordained whites and middle-classes to be the enemies of the socialist state.

If you think that such a statement is paranoid, ask yourself why the police will not get involved in cases such as Fiona Pilkington’s, but speed to cases on full blues and twos when a religious, racial, gender, or class crime has been committed. Ask yourself why the police only seem to take the type of crime seriously that the socialist government promotes as serious, and why so many of the Chief Constables (all of whom owe their positions to a slavish devotion to the Labour Party) have degrees in criminology and sociology which promote criminals as victims of social injustice.

Take a look at this video of police “officers” retreating under a hail of sticks and traffic cones before a gang of Muslims shouting “This is war, Kuffar,” and then watch what happens when the white middle classes peacefully demonstrate in favour of fox hunting. Look at the bloodied faces and broken heads and consider why not one, not one policeman, was subsequently found guilty of police brutality.

The much-traduced British police are now protectors of the multicultural/socialist state rather than the protectors of the law-abiding general public. If you are a member of the ruling elite, the police are not only your political servants but also your personal bodyguards. If, on the other hand, you are a member of the increasingly persecuted class, by which I mean traditionally British, irrelevant of income or education, then the police have at best abandoned you, or at worst become your enemy.

The worst part of it all is that in order to give the impression that nothing has changed, the government implemented the PCSOs as a visible "on the beat" replacement for the actual police. A PCSO has very limited powers of arrest. They can't do anything except walk around looking police-like, but it's enough to fool people into thinking that the police are still there and not locked away in their massive out-of-town headquarters building, filling in paperwork and waiting for an anti-islamisation demo to break up. It's the paramilitary style of continental police forces, especially those of the French. Our police were very different to theirs, but the EU demanded harmonisation and, rather than pick a force that worked, they gave cash incentives to governments to re-style their police along a French paramilitary line, operating from large centralised response centres rather than being integrated into the local community as the old constabularies were.

There's one of those buildings down the road from me on Ashton Moss retail park. It's a huge modern-corporate-styled building called Nexus House. Within a week of opening it had half a dozen windows put in and some are still boarded up even now. Shows how much respect people have for the police here.

To be fair, the US military will actually allow non-citizens to enlist on a fast-track to citizenship (in some cases even exempting the green card requirement in favor of student visa for key skills programs - language, medical, etc) - however, I think history so far has borne out that this produces a fairly more well integrated citizen than might otherwise be the case.

This was as difficult to read as a Theodore Dalrymple essay.

Looking for a bit of blue sky, I found this:

swathed sinkers.

I'm a sucker for alliteration and that one is particularly fine. Perhaps the B can put a little trademark sign on it. Seriously, you ought to claim it as your own.

Robert Marchenoir said...

Excellent paper.

I don't know about the requirements for entering the French police -- and they are certainly not that down the slope generally speaking, although they seem to be working hard on it.

But it's obvious, just by looking at them, that many are quite physically unfit nowadays. You see plenty ot short people, fat people, and, I'm sorry to say, more and more women (not the burly type).

At the same time, criminals (and, by that, I mean mainly youngsters with an immigrant background) seem bigger and stronger than they ever have been, notably Blacks.

Even those who are not particularly strong are more and more possessed by an indomitable rage, energy and hatred, which can make them extremely dangerous even when devoid of weapons.

Politicians pretend that CCTV and non-lethal weapons will be an appropriate answer.

This is the point of the exercise to govern through crime: legislation that creates an ‘idealised subject' of law based on being a victim, the victims of a failing criminal justice system including the police; victims of crime and anti-social behaviour taxpayer victim of the NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) and NED, society as victims of the financial fraudsters.

This is the policy behind the destruction of the police, crazy but true.

Dymphna said...

City Journal had an essay in the Spring issue on crime in the UK that is a companion piece to this.

Here:

The Dark Figure of British Crime:Despite government reassurances, Britons feel under siege—with good reason, by Claire Berlinski.

Conclusion:

The situation in Britain, then, resembles that of 1980s New York, whose crime problems were routinely called insoluble. What the British government fails to understand is that the majority of serious crimes are committed by a small cadre of criminals, who are also, disproportionately, the authors of minor crimes. If you lock these criminals up—reliably, and for a long time—crime will drop precipitously. The reason Broken Windows policing works is not that it is inherently important to jail every petty thug who breaks a window; it is that the window-breakers tend to be muggers, rapists, burglars, and murderers as well. If you get them off the streets, the rate of serious crime will fall. To dismiss as “true but trivial” the finding that “an astronomical amount of crime is committed” in Britain is only half right. The British people know this full well, even if their government does not.

Especially see her critique of the methodology of gathering crime statistics. Alarming, because one can see how misleading the numbers are.

@ Graham Dawson: the police complain that the "cop-on-the-beat" isn't working because they have to spend all their time in comunity meetings.

The 2007 figures show Ethnic Minority figures at about 27% and Foreign prisoners at around 14%. so that is another 10% or approx 5000 cons!!

Weston: "the most important thing on the minds of coppers from Constables to Commissioners is to never, ever fail to give your undivided attention to a perceived racial incident." Provided the victim is from one of the 'minorities'. If the situation is reversed the white/British victim is perceived as the perpetrator in the sense that it was his/her behaviour that precipitated the attack.

Nasty. Does anyone still doubt the new left is liitle more than marxism applied to everything but economics? The multicultural (ie racial_marxist) version of the "dictatorship of the proletariat" is here and taking shape. Just like the USSR, in some places PC thoughtcrimes are already more vigorously punished than bread and butter crimes like rape and robbery.

Please allow me to add a personal experience to the tail end of Paul Weston's excellent piece.

A few weeks ago I spent a couple of days with relatives who live in a fairly unremarkable small town/large village in Northern England - unremarkable other than the fact that it has managed to hang on to its traditional English feel.

One day I went out to buy a newspaper and walked along the footpath by the side of the road to the town centre. The path was narrow there was traffic on the road and someone else was on the path and coming towards me in the opposite direction.

Being a naturally chivalrous type I took the course closest to the road in preparation of allowing my fellow pedestrian to take the outside course, that is the one away from the road.

As we approached I moved closer to the road but rather than move closer to 'his' side of the path and thus allow us to pass without inhibiting each other's progress, the other pedestrian maintained his position towards the centre of the path.

To make matters more interesting I noticed that the other pedestrian was not British. I'm no expert but my guess he was an Afghan, one of the slightly Oriental-looking types, but of course I could be wrong.

thll said...

Continued:

We maintained our respective courses. It seemed to me the other man was intent on a collision. He had room to step aside whereas had I stepped aside I would have had to step into the road - and I'd already given way in choosing to adopt the outside course closest to the road. So there was no way I was going to step into the road to make way for him.

And of course the inevitable happened - our shoulders crashed. The 'Afghan' chap came out with a mouthful of expletives, I was surprised how well he knew such words; he spoke with an accent.

I said that had he moved closer to the side of the path we could have passed without touching. He came out with a few more expletives and stepped towards me aggressively and shouted 'Christian bastard'.

My instinct was to hit him. I'm a big bloke with a rugby build and a lived in face. But I didn't.

It was a situation I couldn't win. Had the police become involved in any fracas that might have erupted then there was only one loser. And big as I am, I don't really go in for brawling in the street, and anyway, I wasn't dressed for it - I had my best mac on.

So I had to turn away. His words 'Christian bastard' didn't particularly bother me, he didn't have the capacity to insult me, but by the same token I still felt a need to respond like with like.

I half thought about 'Muslim bastard', because surely only a Muslim would use the epithet 'Christian bastard', but I would have felt uncomfortable resorting to juvenile name-calling.

But had I responded like for like it's quite possible this situation would have escalated out of all proportion. I guess I'd have been forced to defend myself and whatever the outcome it would have been my fault for insulting his religion. That he insulted mine would have been deemed irrelevant.

On my turning away he made some noises that I took to mean he'd scared me off. That's how these people think. They interpret our law abiding, courteousness, and tolerance as indicators of cowardice. And the one-sidedness of the British legal system makes things worse by encouraging minorities that they can do no wrong.

What struck me most of all was arrogance of the man. He expected me to step into the path of road traffic to make way for him while maintained his position. I see the same behaviour whenever I'm driving and come across what I conclude are Muslim drivers - I suppose this goes some way to explaining the chaos on Muslim nations' roads. They have a one track mind, the track they are on and anything else, whatever it is, is not as important as what they are doing at any particular time.

Even though my 'assailant' was quite clearly some sort of asylum seeker and most likely existing on the 'charity' of taxpayers, there was no hint of respect or gratitude in him, only hatred.

And yet, were he to come into conflict with ethnic Britons it would be the ethnic Britons that the law would seek to blame.

These are the kind of people that politicians say it's vital we accept into the country.

well Orwell in 1984 got it wrong - but only by a few years.
Kubrick with "A Clockwork Orange" got it wrong but only in the respect that the killers and rapists who then became Police Officers were white trash.
Over a period of 40 years I conducted 3 Management Consultancy exercises on 3 different English Police Forces.
40 years ago things were bad in the realm of "on the street" time as a proportion of working time.
That said it was NOTHING LIKE as bad as it now seems. Things have worsened substantially in just that aspect but clearly otherwise as well

Really. As oldtime GoV you should know that the true believer has priority over the Kuffar, on the road or wherever. As for living on taxpayers charity, the Afghan that regards as his due, which the Kuffar has to give. You should be grateful that that he did not smack you on the head for being insolent.

In future bear this mind - The Kuffar must pay the Jizya with humility, as well as feel genuinely humiliated.

From your letter I gather, that you do not feel genuine humiliation. Report yourself to the nearest mosque or police station, whichever is more convenient, for proper etiquette when dealing with persons of superior stature and standing.

New York had the same problems until Mayor Rudy Giuliani started to fight against quality of life offenses and putting everyone through the system (36 hours) until the liberal judge released the person. Within 2 years things got better. Youths on the subway started saying 'excuse me' when the bumped into you. It turned out that lots of people who were arrested for drinking a beer on the corner had warrants for major crimes. New York started to recover.

Your queen made Giuliani a knight, so let her make him the chief of your police force and then you will see things start to improve also.

Gee, should I be grateful I was in Paris when I had to fight off racist bullies? I'm a 4'8" tall, then weighed 80 lbs soaking wet Filipino girl, vs a 6 ft tall teen who probably weighed over 200 pounds. Threw me down the school stairs for no good reason. I fought back, and sent him to the hospital, because, given my size, weight and gender, I do not have the luxury of ever thinking 'they'll come to their senses and stop hurting me' and by necessity will fight to maim, or kill, or at least make sure they cannot come after me any more. That's what my father told the Paris police when they called up to ask him about the incident. They never came 'round. If I was in England, I likely would have ended up convicted in court and rotting in jail now.

It is sad the state of the British Police forces. It was once Great Britain, but now it is only a shadow of its self. The sad part is this was foretold in the 1960's. If one were to watch "Clockwork Orange" they could see the resemblance to today. The out of control youth, the broken family life and the criminals in Police positions. This movie was made in 1969 and you can see how Britain today looks very similar.

I think world has been changed a lot. It is not the world as it is in the past. To deal with current problems, it is needed to have alteration of the traditional system. It is a real adaptation of current demand. In other words, it is called the law of nature. In this law of nature everything changes within out life system, social system. It has happened in the past and it will happen in the future. A human must accept this fact and should have the ability to adjust with current system. Old game is over.
