UKIP puts pressure on Government over rape gangs

Following the revelations of 40 years of child abuse carried out by rape gangs in Telford, and on the back tens of thousands of innocent child victims, almost entirely white or Sikh, in cities across the length and breadth of these islands, the leader of UKIP in the House of Lords will present an oral question to the Government on Tuesday 13th March about the failures of the authorities to deal with the situation and whether anything will be done to hold the failing agencies to account for those failings.

Lord Pearson

Lord Pearson will ask,

what assessment they have made of the national scale of the “grooming gang scandal”, including sexual exploitation of non Muslim children by Muslim men, as emerged recently in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and elsewhere; and what steps they are taking to enable the prosecution of those in the police and local authorities who have failed to prevent it.”

Lord Pearson said,

“In 2014 the Jay report found that in Rotherham alone [pop. 110,000] some 1,400 “Kufar” [non-Muslim] white girls had been abused between 1997 and 2013. Girls who become victims of these gangs are usually raped several times a day, so we are looking at many thousands of rapes just in Rotherham.If we extend the picture in Rotherham to our other cities with large Muslim populations, the number of rapes becomes almost unimaginable.

“According to a recent Quilliam Report, there have been only 264 convictions for grooming gang crime nationally since 2005, with just 30 in Rotherham. It found that 84% of the culprits were “Asian men”.

“I fear I will be accused of ‘hate crime’ in the wording of the Question, because Muslims may say it makes them feel hated and victimised.

“But that is what our police and social services feared when they turned a blind eye to all this for many years. And it is still going on.

“So who are the victims?  What are our Muslim leaders and close-knit Muslim communities doing about it?

“Should we not at least start talking about Islam?”

Government failures on Casey will prove be a massive mistake

With appalling timing after the revelations out of Telford where 1000’s of girls were systematically raped and in some cases murdered over a period of 40 years by gangs of largely Muslim men, the Government has watered down the recommendations of the Casey report commissioned after the earlier Rotherham rape gang scandal.

Gerard Batten MEP, the UKIP leader responded,

“The watering down of the Casey report recommendations on migrant integration will prove be a massive mistake.

“Mass immigration should be stopped now once and for all, and every effort made to integrate those migrants already here. The Government refuses to do either.

“The Government’s failure is the latest in a long line of failures that will have untold consequences for our country and way of life.”

“The recommendations were an attempt at least to address the consequences of decades of uncontrolled and unlimited immigration.

“We have imported millions of people who have failed to integrate into British society and in many cases have no wish to do so.

“Mass indiscriminate immigration and the failed doctrine of multiculturalism have created profound problems for Britain that will take generations to resolve, if indeed they can be resolved.

“The elephant in the room is the issue of the Islamic identity of millions UK citizens. An identity so strong among many if its followers that it cannot integrate or be absorbed into another culture.

“While we face massive problems created by past immigration we continue to admit people demonstrably unknown numbers.

“The Government’s failure to implement the modest recommendations of the Casey report show its refusal to confront the problem.

“Those problems are profound, the vilest manifestation of which is the nationwide plague of Muslim rape gangs.

“The recommendations were an attempt at least to address the worst aspects of the failure of some communities to integrate. Worse they should not even have been controversial as they would assist those most at risk.

“How can dropping her call all public office holders to swear an oath of allegiance to British values to combat extremism be anything other than reasonable, but this Government has dropped it. Why?

“It is plain common sense that all those who move to this country should be expected to learn English, if they don’t how can they become fully part of our society, and understand both the duties and obligations of living here. But the Government has dropped it. Why?

“Only a week after Neil Basu, the National Counter Terrorism co-ordinator has warned of the threat of extremism in ‘home-schooling’, more properly micro-schools the Government is dropping a register for all homeschooling.

“And to cap it all the Government is so unconcerned about the threat both of terrorism and they failures of integration that have led to the rape gang scandals that it has cut the prosed budget from £200 to £50 million.”

Mr Batten said, “It is hard to conceive of what is going through the Government’s head to drop these recommendations, let alone to understand it. The only message that they are giving out to the perpetrators of these heinous crimes is, OK then, we don’t have the courage to confront you, and we really don’t care that much, carry on.

“The Government’s failure is the latest in a long line of failures that will have untold consequences for our country and way of life.”

Tough times, but not for an MLA


Commenting on the Secretary of State’s decision to delay making a final decision on MLAs pay, to ‘consult with the parties first,’ UKIP Regional Controller for Northern Ireland, Paul Girvan said:

“I am not aware of any other business, organisation, sector or jurisdiction where full-time pay for a (just about) part-time job is the status-quo.

“In these tough times locally, many nurses, community workers, tradesmen, temp and retail staff across Northern Ireland are scraping by on lower incomes by working full time 9-5 jobs.

Yet we are faced with the warped situation here where we’ve no functioning Assembly or Executive – yet ninety MLAs remain and are handsomely paid full-time salaries and expenses; despite not carrying out the most basic function(s) of their job for roughly fourteen months.

“MLAs have spent just 46 minutes inside the Assembly Chamber they were elected to in the last fourteen months. It is unjustifiable for them to continue to receive full salaries and expenses.”

“We are calling on the Secretary of State to bring an end to this dithering and to take immediate action by ending the charade of full MLA pay for very little work.

“Furthermore, we believe Her Majesty’s Government should call time on this flawed, failed and expensive version of devolution which has long since run its course.”

Smoke and Mirrors

Dear Prime Minister,

A few inconvenient thoughts. Inconvenient for you at least, especially as they are widely held:

The agent identified as being used in this incident, Novichok, was developed by the Soviet Union and is not a single agent but, a “type” of agent.
This family of agents has been around for nearly 50 years and it is inevitable that others, including our own government and that of the US, have synthesised it at least for research and testing purposes.

The notion that the only source of this agent could be Russia is absurd.

You have not been able to categorically pin this on Moscow, because you clearly don’t have evidence enabling you to do so. We all know that had such evidence been available, you would’ve said so faster than my dear departed granny calling “house!” on a full bingo card.

We know we are being misled in order to divert our attention from Brexit and the exposure of the most serious case of industrial-scale child grooming, rape and murder that this country has ever seen and which has recently been exposed in Telford. Not only has this evil episode been exposed but, it is emerging that, yet again, the local authorities, including police and social services, knew about it and allowed political correctness to stand in the way of investigating these hideous crimes.

Notably, this attack also comes on the back of a visit from the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, who wants to sell LPG to the UK, probably in an exclusive deal. LPG is a commodity of which we currently buy a significant volume from Russia. What a coincidence.

Don’t take all of us for fools, Mrs May. We will not let this get in the way of investigating events in Telford and we will most certainly not let it hamper Brexit.

Kind regards

Keith Lonsdale

Margot Parker MEP hails International Women’s Day

‘…UKIP MEP backs #WomenLead and calls for equality at home and abroad…’

MARGOT Parker MEP has backed this week’s (March 8) International Women’s Day.

The East Midlands MEP, who sits on the FEMM, (Women’s Rights and Gender Equality), committee in the EU Parliament has called for equality and equal chances for women both at home and abroad.

She said: “International Women’s Day again gives us all the chance to celebrate the achievements and steps have made over the years.

“But it is also a day to remember many women across the world are not equal and there is much work to be done- both at home and abroad, not least in countries were women are oppressed. Education is the key and should play a big part in helping to end that oppression.”

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900’s and is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity.”

This year’s theme is #PressFor Progress and Mrs Parker urged people to visit and get involved in the push for equal chances.

She said: “This day belongs to all of us – men and women – as we strive to bring about change. All of us who care about equal rights have a part to play.

“I would urge people to visit the website and make their pledges and see which events are local to them so they can attend and get more involved.

“There is much work to be done on a whole host of issues – we all need to play a part.”

The UKIP MEP has fought for equality and justice on a range of issues at home and throughout the EU and beyond.

She has highlighted:

· The ongoing fight to end the horrendous pratice of femal genital mutilation, (FGM).

· The fight against sex trafficking.

· The campaign against the unfair ‘tampon tax.’

· Equal chances for women in business and the workplace to make childcare more affordable for working women.

· The fight against child marriage.

· The battle to end so-called ‘grooming gangs.

She said: “There is much work to be done both in this country and abroad.

“In this country too many women are still subjected to issues they have to fight against because of their gender.

She said: “For starters, we must look at getting this pay gap narrowed further, particularly when it comes to women returning to work after childbirth.

“It is grossly unfair on women that the gap widens after the arrival of children, whether that is due to them missing promotions, or gathering less work experiences.

“Remember, there is huge, un-tapped workforce of women who simply cannot go back to work because, for example, they can only to work weekends when their partner is home. The costs of childcare make it very difficult for women to get back into the workplace.”

“Women who return to work after they have had their children – no matter how long they are out of the workforce for – have so much to offer society. We have a duty to make sure they are treated fairly.”

Universities Must Uphold Free Speech

David Kurten, UKIP London Assembly member attacks the climate of fear in our universities caused by the deliberate destruction of freedom of speech by far left activists who are trying to intimidate any who disagree with their agenda of subservience and cultural warfare.

“The UK is a free country because there is freedom of speech, thought, conscience and belief, but these freedoms are under attack. Action needs to be taken to ensure that Universities and Students’ Unions allow opinions to be heard which may be controversial. Universities should be places where students learn how to think. Many have instead become places where students are programmed with politically correct groupthink, where deviation from the politically correct narrative is a punishable offence.”

“Bristol University Students Union’s recent decision to ban feminists who question the female status of ‘trans-women’- people with male anatomy and chromosomes who identify as women – is the latest example of an erosion of free speech and should be reversed. Speakers such as Germaine Greer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Nigel Farage have been ‘no platformed’ at Universities in recent years, and students are the poorer for not being allowed to hear these speakers and form their own opinions and decisions about the ideas they espouse.

“University students are adults: if they can’t listen to an opinion they don’t agree with without needing to go to their safe space, then they shouldn’t be at University. Nobody is going to agree with every opinion they hear, but students should not be mollycoddled. They do not need to be protected from being offended. This is particularly true for most visiting speakers: students normally have a choice as to whether they go to listen to them or not.

“There is no reason to ‘no platform’ a visiting speaker unless they are inciting violence. If freedom of speech is eroded, either actively or passively, then we replace it with totalitarianism, where everybody is required to have the same opinion and thoughts.”

Something! But Not For You

UKIP Northern IrelandRoyal Mail parcel delivery service is simply not up to the task. The Oh so familiar “Something for you” postcard indicates quite the reverse. Not only has Royal Mail failed to deliver the package, something not for you, but compound the action by preventing the customer from collecting the item until the next day.

This process is simply inefficient and dare I say it! Not very environmentally friendly. Despite having to pay for a service not wholly provided, the customer has to then pay for fuel or transport in order to stand in line, perhaps even outside in the rain, in order to recover their parcel. In addition having, possibly, to pay a fee for parking.

Royal Mail needs to modify its service to serve a modern society, we are no longer tied to the kitchen sink during the working day. Most families need to be out working to make ends meet and Royal Mail needs to recognise that fact providing an appropriate level of service in order to satisfy the needs of their customers.

Continually we hear glowing praise for our postmen, perhaps if the parcel service have no desire to match their level of service then consideration needs to be given to handing over to another more competent provider.

Veterans against Terrorism recommend UKIP

Gerard Batten MEP, UKIP  Leader and Richard Inman from veterans against Terrorism ask you to join UKIP: A voice for the patriotic working people of this nation.

 Earlier this week, UKIP Leader – Gerard Batten MEP met with Richard Inman from the Group ‘Veterans Against Terrorism.’ As seen in the video above (released by Richard of V.A.T) the NEC and party reps  endorsed Gerard’s proposal to support the efforts of this group going forward. 

Richard and many fellow veterans (across the UK) have now officially joined UKIP (and many others are in the process of doing so) as they believe that UKIP is the authentic voice of Brexit and of the patriotic working people of this nation. 

The old parties are letting the people down and to quote Richard –“unity is now required in our movement” to face up to the many challenges ahead.

 >From today, you can join UKIP too for just £20.00. 🇬🇧 Make a stand and get involved!

Letter to the Prime Minister

Dear Prime Minister

It was obvious from your reaction at the dispatch box during PMQs today that the recently published draft document outlining the EU’s Brexit proposals, particularly where the UK/RoI border is concerned, was not in fact what was agreed in December.

This is clearly another deliberately provocative move, designed to stoke the fires of “project fear” and undermine our decision to leave the EU.

We will not accept Northern Ireland being treated differently to any other part of the UK where Brexit is concerned.

The UK voted to leave the EU and ALL of its constituent parts must do so together as a single entity and under the same conditions.

There must be no border of any kind between N Ireland and the rest of the UK.

If this is unacceptable to the EU, that’s too bad.

If this is unacceptable to the Irish, they can have a referendum and vote to leave with us. They can then join us in free trade in what would be by far their best option, given that we are their nearest and largest trading partner, not the continental EU.

This message must be sent unequivocally to Brussels and Dublin.

Yours Faithfully

Keith Lonsdale
