St George’s Day must be preserved and promoted

This year, in my part of the world at least, one could be forgiven for assuming that St George’s Day had been cancelled! No flags or buntings, no celebrations, no dedicated evenings in local pubs and restaurants, no staged events. When I visited Trafalgar Square in the early evening of yesterday, I met only a small handful of celebrants, and sadly there were no red and white flags to be seen in the surrounding area.

The Liberal Elite have long felt awkward in publicly acknowledging St George’s Day. They feel ill at ease with any overt display or appreciation of Englishness, presumably because they are anxious at our being reminded in a positive way about our indigenous ethnic roots.

Despite five decades of post-war negative indoctrination, the collective persistent and stalwart efforts of a dedicated few individuals succeeded in putting St George’s Day back on the national calendar. In recent years, its prominence had increased so much that there were calls to make it a bank holiday. Then to some extent, the lefties decided to jump on the band-waggon in an attempt to derail the essential patriotic element by foisting it with an all-inclusive, ‘multi-culti’ bias. Now it seems as if everyone’s given up, which is just what the Establishment has wanted all along. Mission accomplished, or so they think!

But there’s more to the English than the Liberal Elite have bargained for! We are committed to the celebration of St George’s Day as an annual celebration of our valiant, unique English heritage- a birthright of which we can all feel jointly and justly proud and which we must work together to preserve and promote, both for ourselves and for our children.

Boxing Day stabbings: the knife-crime nightmare continues while the numbers jailed for carrying a weapon plummet

The London knife-crime nightmare rages unabated with a double stabbing in Oxford Street in the midst of the Boxing Day sales. A fight in Foot Locker, in full view of shoppers, tragically resulted in a murder when an 18 year-old was stabbed in the heart. A further knifing occurred less than five hours later when a 21 year-old was stabbed in the thigh at Oxford Circus, but the victim fortunately survived.

Only three weeks earlier, on 2nd December, figures released by the Ministry of Justice showed that the proportion of people jailed for carrying a knife in England and Wales had fallen to its lowest level for more than three years. Only just over a fifth- 21%- of offenders convicted of possession of a knife or offensive weapon between July and September 2011 were jailed.

The Metropolitan Police have been increasing the use of ‘stop and search’ in order to deter young people from carrying knives. However, this is clearly not enough to reverse the situation if the courts are not prepared to impose tough sentences on those who are caught, in order to force potential knife-carriers to make a double-take. If they think that they are going to get away with it, then would-be offenders, especially youngsters, will continue to arm themselves because they mistakenly see the carrying of a weapon as a form of protection. And the problem is an ever increasing one: the more people who are seen to get away with routinely carrying knives, the more others will be encouraged to adopt the practice.

In the Legal Aid and Sentencing Bill, the government proposes to introduce a mandatory minimum prison sentence of four months for teenagers aged 16 and 17 convicted of threatening people with knives and 6 months for those aged over 18 years. This may be a step in the right direction, but in my view it’s only a tiny one. For a start, the defendant (aged 16 or over) would need to be shown to have actually threatened someone, so simply carrying a knife would not qualify. Secondly, the likelihood is that the offender would only actually serve half the sentence, which means in practice just two/three months inside. We need to fight fire with fire and send out a much stronger message, with a minimum term to be actually served of at least a year for those under 18 and 3 years for adults convicted for possession of a weapon in a public place. Only when the fear of getting caught outweighs that of being stabbed will the battle even begin to appear winnable.

Meanwhile the tragic toll of those killed and maimed continues. What will it take for the politicians of all parties to get a grip?

Richard Barnbrook’s Christmas and New Year Message

Dear Fellow Nationalists

The end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 is a good opportunity to take stock.

It is now more than 18 months since the General Election. And some 15 months since I was expelled from the British National Party. We need to ask ourselves, what has been achieved for the nationalist cause in this country in that time?

The last year has not just been a time of stagnation but regression. Yet the dire political situation that the nation finds itself in is worse than ever. And what’s more, as the recession bites, job prospects recede and the pressure on public resources becomes ever more greater, exacerbated by the influx of some 250 000 NET incomers in the last 12 months alone, the smouldering discontent and impatience for change rumbles ever louder. What is needed is a cogent political force to represent this discontent, and it’s needed more so now than ever before.

Looking round at the various nationalist blog sites, written by leading lights in the nationalist cause, it’s patently obvious that we are all singing from the same hymn sheet. What can’t be agreed upon is which church we should all be singing in! Broadly speaking, there is a general agreement on the problems which beset our country: a loud lament about our loss of national identity and cultural heritage, the surrender of sovereignty, deprivation of free speech, social injustice, appalling remoteness of the parasitic politicians, increasing islamification… we all know what we think. What we lack however, is a cohesive political mechanism that enables us to present these views to the electorate, packaged as a viable realistic, electable alternative to vote for at the ballot box. All in all, the public are sympathetic to the policies that we roundly subscribe to. What we need to present to them is ONE united and positive front that can demonstrate a plausible and responsible organisation to implement them.

At the beginning of the year, I personally wrote to Nigel Farage of UKIP, Nick Griffin of the BNP, and Robin Tilbrook of the English Democrats, as well as Tommy Robinson of the English Defence League, inviting them to a meeting to discuss a way forward in which the nationalist parties can co-operate in order to become this united political force, a force that the media can no longer ignore. Now a year has gone by and there’s been no movement in this respect. It’s been another year wasted, for what have we achieved?

How many more years are we going to let pass until we get our act together? 2012 will see the GLA elections in London. I don’t wish to sound like a prophet of doom, but I tell you here and now that on present showings there will be NO nationalist representation on the Greater London Assembly next summer. No nationalist from any of the parties! By each going it alone, instead of co-operating, we are allowing ourselves to be pushed out of the political picture- for good. And meanwhile, our historic. cultural and national heritage is slowly but steadily being annihilated.

Many of you have left one party and joined another; some have come together and started new ones, but this is not the answer. You can have as many new parties as there are stars in the sky and it won’t change the situation in this country one jot. The only answer open to us now is to co-operate and ultimately to unite, painful as this may be to some. There is bound to be resistance by those in the parties’ leadership. So it’s up to the grass roots to force through change.

The greatest victories have always been attained by great sacrifice and so it is today. We have to look at how we can make the best with what we have and struggle to build solutions instead of criticising those who have made mistakes. What’s been said and done has been said and done. We will never move forward with negativity. Now we have to look forward and see what can be rescued from the debris.

The Romans were able to subdue Britain because the Celtic tribes were unable to put their own petty interests before those of the country as a whole and present a united front. We simply cannot afford to make the same mistake again! Because if we do, there will be no future for our children. Britain will soon be changed irrevocably forever unless we work together now to resist it!

With grand hopes for the unity of all nationalist entities and right thinking Britons in the coming year, and wishing you each and all, a peaceful Christmas and a prosperous and successful 2012,

Yours sincerely

Richard Barnbrook

Immigration- now it’s the elderly who are expected to pay the price!

An shock report issued by the newly formed, left-wing pressure group, Intergenerational Foundation, is out to make war on one of society’s softest targets: the elderly.

In their unashamedly ageist attack on senior citizens, whom they consider to be fair game, the Foundation, launched by Labour’s Tessa Jowell, has issued a report that is blatantly draconian and hostile to the interests and well-being of the elderly- all in the name of ’fairness’, of course. The proposal is that because of the current housing shortage, older people should be taxed out of their family homes in order to make room for younger families.

On the surface this might seem to be a sensible suggestion, but when seen in the light of the fact of the net figure of over a quarter of a million immigrants entering the country last year, the implications become far more sinister.

As I have been saying for a long time, large numbers of newcomers need to be both serviced and accommodated somewhere- because it’s a fact of life that you can’t squeeze a quart into a pint pot. (And I make no apologies for using imperial measurement!) So, where shall we put them all? Where indeed! According to the Intergenerational Foundation, the answer’s quite simple- turf out all those lonely oldies living in three bedroom houses and push them into accommodation that is ‘more suited to their needs,’ to make way for younger families! So much for the age-old saying ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’!

When, oh when will the British public wake up? How much longer will they be prepared to sit back and watch their birthright being stolen before their eyes? Our national sovereignty has been hijacked by Brussels so that we can’t even make our own laws any more. Our politicians ignore our wishes, even though we elected them to represent our interests. Our children are being sold short in the education system, health tourists from abroad exploit our already over-stretched NHS, and our own people can’t get jobs, which are being given to foreign nationals. And now, senior members of society, who deserve respect and the dignity of some space in their declining years, having worked all their lives to earn it, are blatantly being told to move over because they are in the way! Even to make such a pointed and offensive suggestion is indicative of how far some politicians are prepared to go in this full-scale attack on the interests of the people of this country.

The only comfort that I can draw from this disgusting and shameful attack on the elderly is the fact that Tessa Jowell herself is clearly no spring-chicken! In the not too distant future, she may live to rue the day that she affiliated herself with such a barbarous bunch of ageist bigots!
