Windrush scandal caused by ‘30 years of racist immigration laws’ – report | Windrush scandal | The Guardian


Exclusive: legislation has been designed to reduce the UK’s non-white population, according to leaked government paper

============================================

Unfortunately this report does not surprise me as we have had reports after reports that there is institutional racism in many of our UK organisations, some of these organisations are masquerading as police forces, but the higher echelons in those forces did not fully agree.

But ‘Windrush’, even after all the atrocities their descendants went through under ‘Slavery’, they were still prepared to come to the UK in the 50s when they were asked to help us in our ‘hour of need’ to find that many in the UK resented them coming. But, even after that they did what they promised to do and worked exceedingly well to help the UK and when they could afford to they brought their families to the UK and they to did all they can to help the UK while having to undergo extreme and very ugly racism attacks.

When they came they were British citizens and did not need official papers to travel to the UK, just as we didn’t need papers to travel for where they came from, many from the West Indies were an extension of the UK throughout the UK, they were British citizens as anyone was and still is in the UK.

They were fairly content in the UK and so didn’t apply for formal recognition as many others who were actually born in the 4 countries of the UK did not. Only those who wished to travel outside the UK applied for passports and these were the lucky ones for they did have then formal documents to show they were UK citizens.

But due to immigration laws passed while they were residing in the UK, and the attitudes of some in the Home Office and certain Government Ministers it came that officially they couldn’t easily prove that they were British citizens, even though if these Home Office officials and Government Ministers were bothered to check employment records the proof was there.

So, many were illegally classed as being here illegally, which was so wrong. They trusted the UK and that trust was severely broken.

Many were even illegally deported to a land they left many years ago to help the UK, where what roots they had there were no more, they were deported to be on their own as their friends were near them in the UK.

It makes me so ashamed to say I am British,  and those who allowed this to occur should be made accountable, perhaps even shipped off to lands they don’t know and don’t know anyone.

It was and still is a scandal which should not have occurred or been allowed to occur.

The UK owes everyone who was caught up in this scandal and everyone should be recompensed immediately not in weeks, months or even years, but immediately.

The various UK Governments concerned and the Home Office Officials need to pay for causing this scandal, but ‘lessons are not learnt’, no they never are, for to learn there needs to be a willingness to learn and that is not there, so other scandals occur, evacuation from Afghanistan to name but one and more are still to occur. It is abuse of power and no caring.

Guests walk out of Scottish Football awards ceremony over ‘sexist, racist and homophobic jokes’  | Daily Mail Online


BBC presenter Eilidh Barbour led a walkout at the Scottish Football Writers’ Association (SFWA) awards in Glasgow over ‘sexist and racist’ jokes made by a keynote speaker.

============================================

Good on Eilidh on her action and all the others who walked out for the time is long gone when ‘sexist, racist and homophobic’ jokes should be made anywhere and the time should never have existed.

Infact, I feel the keynote speaker should be prosecuted for making such jokes, as until the authorities take this seriously people will continue to do as they please and ‘lessons will never be learnt’.

More prosecutions need to be made to ensure abusive jokes are being curtailed and thereby make life better for all concerned, perhaps, even the venue and the organisers of the event should also be prosecuted.

If, these so called ‘jokers’ can only raise laughs by creating abuse then they should not be around.

Everyone has the Right to lead a life free from abuse.

Eilidh’s action is a far better way to deal with these abusive people than follow the example of Will Smith at the Oscars, a walkout rather than a slap, much better result. But a prosecutive would be even better.

Boris Johnson faces THREE more Covid fines as PM is warned ‘worst is to come’ – Mirror Online


Sources have claimed Boris Johnson as bracing himself for up to three more fixed penalty notices over Partygate. He was alleged to have been at six of the dozen gatherings being probed by police

=================================================

You either believe Boris or you do not and by his actions over the years I don’t trust him, but should he resign, I feel he should.

You could claim attending one party was a mistake, but it is said he attended 6, which is 5 too many.

Then he is on record as saying there were no parties, which clearly there were many parties, so does he not really understand what a party is or not is, which implies a lack of judgement and understanding.

Yes, he has apologised, in fact many times and in his latest, apologised over 30 times, but what is he apologising for, is it for going to parties he didn’t know were parties, for his lack of judgement or could it be he is only apologising as he has been found out.

Now they are saying with all that is happening now is not the time to change the Prime Minister, but is there ever a right time.

Boris has lost the little bit of trust that he had with the UK population and the Tories could well be annihilated in the coming Council elections.

But it should not be down to how the Council elections go, but is Boris fit to be a Prime Minister, some will say he was never fit to be, many were undecided and some thought he was, but there are now many more who say he needs to go.

When you consider the facts, if he was or is failing to understand, then should he still be Prime Minister, for he was in charge or should have been and whatever he was advised, he should know the difference between right and wrong and in many past instances he has not been and did wrong but was forgiven, but now it is past forgiveness and he needs to resign and if he will not then the Tory MPs need to vote for him to go.

The days of British supremacy and ‘native’ obsequiousness are well and truly over


Not only are the ‘days of British supremacy and ‘native’ obsequiousness are well and truly over’, they should never have been there.

What right had Britain and other Western Nations have to subjugate persons of any  other nations or countries, so why should the natives of those countries have any gratefulness. Britain took what it wanted without any request to do so, even enslaving the peoples and took them from their country of origin and placed them in another many 1000s of miles away and not only that, but took their freedoms away, so be grateful for what.

It is Britain and the other Western nations who should be grateful that these persons, whose ancestors were treated so disgracefully, are still wishing to be associated with us to any degree.

Slavery was as wrong then as it is wrong now. These, so called, Christian countries should be so ashamed of themselves, and apologise  so profusely, but an apology was not forthcoming from William and he should be so ashamed that he did not.

Israel focusing on closing loopholes, not imposing Russia sanctions, officials say | The Times of Israel


Lapid, ministries working to ensure country not used to bypass West; Jerusalem says it has no legal ability to declare sanctions — which it doesn’t want to do now in any case

===========================================

Israel is offering tentative support for Ukraine, but not full support as they are not imposing sanctions on Russia. yes, currently there is no legislation in  Israel in which sanctions could be imposed, but this could be remedied by changing the legislation. Instead, they are claiming that they will act as negotiators between Russia and Ukraine and only time will tell if this is the right approach.

However, Israel was created after the end of World War 2 in which Jews went through Hell at the hands of Hitler and the German armed forces in Germany and all the countries which were invaded by Germany. So, if any nation understood the destruction and death in Ukraine at the hands of Russia, then Israel would be able to do so.

We all hope that there will be a Russian withdrawal from Ukraine, then so allowing Ukraine to do all they can to recover from the death and destruction already seen in Ukraine by Putin and the invading Russiam armed forces and be allowed to continue as an independent country under their own elected government and not one imposed by Putin.

Nigerian student says he faced discrimination while fleeing Ukraine | Euronews


Alexander Somto Orah, a 25-year-old Nigerian student, says he faced discrimination when trying to flee the war in Ukraine.

===========================================

As if trying to escape from death and destruction was not enough, here the ugly face of racism rears its ugly head. Now should those to whom racism was subjected to just ignore that they are not deemed equal to others trying to escape death and destruction, so much for helping and empathy, as in these instances the saviours to some are not to others, just because of a skin colour, how wrong is that.

They are all equal for they are all human beings, but then the Russian invaders and certainly Putin do not think so, unless they are supporters of the tyrant Putin.

Labour press ‘in hiding’ – no confirmation whether Coyle’s membership suspended or just whip – SKWAWKBOX


Party press office not answering phones as awareness of right-winger’s suspension after racism allegations.  Labour’s press office has battened down the hatches and is ignoring its phones

==============================================

Seems hiding is not the prerogative of only one party, so much for honesty and transparency, UK politics at its worst.

But, perhaps one party is worst than the others or is there more to come

UK police chiefs consider public admission of institutional racism | Police | The Guardian


Unfortunately, Metropolitan police commissioner, Cressida Dick, does not think and that is the problem for while she is Metropolitain Police Commissioner, I can’t see any progress being made on institutional racism within the met force.

Her continued refusal to accept there is any racism means , the problem is not being recognised within the force leadership and therefore no improvements will be made.

She needs to go without delay.

Is The UK’s Travel Red List Really A ‘Black List’? | HuffPost UK Life


African countries face restrictions following the Omicron outbreak. Young British people are questioning what’s really going on.

============================================

This is a point well made, but many will say, it is just making ‘waves’ when there are no waves to make, but everything mentioned is fact.

South Africa wasn’t the first country to have Omicron, The Netherlands were, but South Africa was the first country to report it, so why as The Netherlands not been put on the ‘Red List’ who is going to provide the answer, for if no answer is not forthcoming then, I feel this adds weight to the ‘African’ discrimination. and being a ‘Black’ List.
