It’s always interesting when MP’s come face to face with political decisions made by the government, only the other day we had Tony Blair telling the people of the UK just how good mass unfettered uncontrolled immigration has been for the UK.
Tony Blair has defended Labour’s controversial mass immigration policy by claiming that Britain cannot succeed unless it opens its borders to more people from different backgrounds.
The former prime minister said it was ‘right’ that the country was made up of different cultures and faiths mixing together.
Mr Blair added that migrants had made Britain ‘stronger’ and said those calling for greater curbs on foreigners entering the country were wrong.
His comments come just days after official figures revealed that the population is expected to soar by the equivalent of a city the size of Leeds every year for the next decade.
A defiant Mr Blair insisted his party’s policy on immigration was the right one. He said: ‘It’s been a very positive thing and there is no way for a country like Britain to succeed in the future unless it is open to people of different colours, faiths and cultures.’
Under Labour, up to 5.5million people born outside the UK arrived as long-term migrants.
Between 1997 and 2010, around 2.3million left the country, meaning the UK population increased by around 3.2million as a direct result of foreign migrants.
Of course Tony Blair doesn’t really live here a lot of the time and more to the point doesn’t live where the immigrants are going, so it’s a bit hypocritical of him telling us it was good for the country when it appears to have only benefited Tony Blair and a few others.
Of course today we had the flip side of the coin…
An MP has described how he waited for police behind a locked door during a constituency surgery after he was threatened by a group of men.
Mike Freer said it happened at North Finchley mosque in north London as he met constituents on Friday afternoon.
Mr Freer said about 12 people forced their way inside, with one of them calling him a “Jewish homosexual pig”.
The trouble began after messages on the Muslims Against Crusades website urged supporters to target him, he said.
Mr Freer said a message posted ahead of the incident on the group’s website made reference to Labour MP Stephen Timms, who was stabbed while holding a surgery in east London last year.
It warned the attack on Mr Timms should serve as a “piercing reminder” to politicians that “their presence is no longer welcome in any Muslim area“.
The Finchley and Golders Green MP, a member of the Conservative Friends of Israel, said there was a vocal demonstration outside the mosque as he began his surgery, but then a second group of people arrived and forced their way inside.
“One of them sat at a table where I was dealing with a constituent and was abusive,” he said.
The MP said he was then escorted by staff at the mosque to a locked part of the building until assistance arrived.
Mr Freer said he only realised the potential danger he had been in when he was made aware of the website’s reference to the attack on East Ham MP Mr Timms.
The message also stated that “as a member of the Conservative Party”, Mr Freer had “the blood of thousands of Muslims on his hands”.
The group, though not mentioned in the BBC article is Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) this was the mob who decided to burn a poppy at the Remembrance day ceremony last November and plan to do the same this year too. It’s interesting that Tony Blair thinks that “it was ‘right’ that the country was made up of different cultures and faiths mixing together” whereas MAC think that for anyone who criticises Islam “their presence is no longer welcome in any Muslim area”
I wonder if Mr Freer thinks that mass unfettered uncontrolled immigration has been good for the UK, he certainly came face to face with one of its results on Saturday. Mind you, I can imagine the conversation when he gets back to Parliament.
“Hi mike have a nice weekend?”
“No not really, I was holding a surgery on Friday at a mosque and had to be locked in a room for my own protection from Muslims wanting to kill me”
“Oh dear that’s terrible , anyway’s we need to tackle the EDL I heard they had a demonstration in Birmingham this weekend, they are “sick” didn’t Mr Cameron tell you??”
Btw I and several other patriots will be at the Cenotaph on Friday the 11th of November to show our contempt at MAC, no it’s not an EDL demo though most will be EDL members. We will be respectful and polite as we honour the fallen, so feel free to join us if you can.
