a pastor’s fart in the corridors of power?

It is not often that I am able to write of good news in the political arena, but when such an opportunity presents itself, who am I to argue or demur.

An impressive video by a Zimbabwean pastor, asking why his country had failed him, was uploaded, and almost immediately went viral. His words and his statements caused the first ever 24-hour strike by just about everyone in Zimbabwe. The whole country just stopped! A blogger whose views I regularly read, posted that she proudly displayed her flag for the first time in years, for this time, Zimbabweans have seen, through the dark curtains of police brutality, of the endemic corruption in central and local government: a chink of light.

It may not last, we have all seen the way that Mugabe treats his own, never mind any kind of opposition; but, if he isn’t murdered, if Pastor Mawarire isn’t silenced in the way many others have; if his body doesn’t reappear swollen with the gases of mortality after torture and death: perhaps Zimbabwe has just a chance at a rebirth!



Not just ‘Far-Right Wing Party’-speak

The disgraceful and disgusting lapses in police and social services in Rotherham and other Northern and Southern British towns and cities have faded from the headlines, but with sporadic revivals as further trials of the sub-humans involved proceed. But the ongoing mental trauma experienced at that time by these (for the most part) schoolgirls still carries on, and we look on as they attempt to dredge their lives from the filth which they were subjected to; with absolutely no movement at all on the religious and political side of Government as to the treatment of the cancer which has been inflicted upon this country of ours. Inflicted, from what had been revealed over they years, by entirely legal processes with full support from Labour, Tory and Lib-tard Parties.

It may surprise some intellectuals, and many well-meaning voters allied to both main political parties, as well as the sopping-wet Lib-Tards, but the siren calls of warning against the Muslim rapists and despoilers of young White British girls came far earlier than the scholarly dissection supplied by Professor Alexis Jay. These warnings were from a name and a Political Party which were so outside the normal political structure that the very mention or association of the Party or its then Leader was enough to commence multiple heart attacks generated from sheer disgust. That Party was course the BNP, and its Leader was then Nick Griffin. It was Griffin who made those allegedly incendiary but perfectly true remarks, and for that he was prosecuted for ‘stirring up racial hatred’ as well as ‘using words or behaviour likely to stir up racial hatred’. Fortunately for Griffin, our Justice system still, if creakingly, works according to the Law, and Griffin, together with his co-accused, was acquitted of all charges, but later lost his position within the Party. But the truth is that it took a further eight years before those 1,400 girls’ stories and complaints were finally believed; the Muslim scum were jailed; the Council powers were removed, and Councillors removed, inclusive of at least one Councillor who was himself implicated in the abuse cycles.

The BNP itself is but a shadow of its former self, with no British or European MPs or MEPs at all, but it still publishes a website with one of the highest readerships in the political world. When you read the words as they appear on the BNP website:-

“We must reject political correctness and call things by their true names. Rather than shedding tears like [Federica] Mogherini and … organising marches that solve nothing, authorities should ensure the safety of citizens.”  and …..‘newcomers from Africa and the Middle East simply do not integrate’  as well as ‘cannot coexist with the culture and values of newcomers to the continent, and that multiculturalism is “wrong” as a concept.’

They are not the words of the BNP leader, they are the words of the Polish Interior Minister.
