On Thursday I was invited up to do our very limited entitlement to coverage on BBC News 24 and the Daily Politics Show because of our Conference coming up and, as usual, the BBC did its best to paint us as: “sad, bad and mad”, its generously taxpayer funded fashion!
Here is a link to Jo Coburn’s interview of me on the Daily Politics on Iplayer >>> http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06chkm8/daily-politics-17092015 My bit starts at 24:30.
And here it is on Youtube >>>
You can see we have now got into a situation where the BBC is using our People’s money and resources to advocate opening the flood gates to the no doubt tens of millions of refugees and economic migrants that would wish to come here if given the chance!
England is already the most densely populated country in Europe and probably the third most densely populated country in the world, after Bangladesh and South Korea! We simply haven’t got the space and resources to sustainably be taking on still more vast numbers of migrants for whatever reason they have come here.
Last year alone the Government’s statistics (which are no doubt vastly under-played), claim that we had over 330,000 come here. That is more than a new Doncaster or Newcastle Upon Tyne that will have to now be built to house just last year’s intake alone. So yet more of England’s green and pleasant land will be concreted over. We are already having to build the equivalent of a new London to house the over 8 million immigrants that have already come here.
The one issue this really raises is where does this end? If the answer, which would be the English Democrats answer, is that we need to vigorously defend our borders, is the right answer then the next question is what are we prepared to do in order to police those borders?
Steve Uncles, our Police Commissioner candidate for Kent, made a facetious comment on the not at all serious “social medium” of Facebook and wrote about using a machine gun.
That is not of course English Democrats’ policy, nor would I approve of that happening gratuitously. However where you have large numbers of fit young men of military age trying to break down our border barriers by force and throwing stones at police and injuring them, as we had at Calais and the Hungarians are now putting up with, where is the line to be drawn? Are we really prepared to see our soldiers and policemen injured by illegal immigrants determined to force their way into our country?
I wouldn’t however have said or written Steve's posting myself, even in jest on Facebook, but the fact of the matter is that the media do not generally report anything that we say that is serious and sensible. They are only looking for something that they think that they can attack us over. Once faced with a media attack there are only two options:- fight or flight. In my opinion in politics and in life generally, flight is usually the worse option.
I support the solution of Viktor Orban, the Prime Minister of Hungary, in vigorously enforcing borders. If necessary that must include the option of our border guards, who ought to be armed (like almost all the others across the world). They should have orders that permit them to fire whenever they think it is necessary to maintain law and order and defend themselves at our border controls.
I do think it is an interesting example of how hypocritical the members of our British Political elite are that they are more than happy to have police armed with machine guns guarding them, no doubt against us, but they are not prepared to stand up to nasty remarks about them made by the unrepresentative and undemocratic mass media or to properly protect and enforce our border controls.
So far as the behaviour of the mass media is concerned and, in particular, the BBC, I think that nobody can do any better than to listen to this YouTube clip illustrating the extent of blatant bias in the BBC. Also, if you listen carefully to the last caller, in order to get on the air at all the BBC are cunningly censoring who does get on. The caller had to pretend that he was a supporter of refugees crossing in to Hungary. Here is the clip>>>
What do you think?
