Teach a man to fish……

A fellow blogger on another site to which I contribute raises a point well worth noting, especially in these days of so-called multiculturalism and diversity. She notes that protests were approaching chaos in Grenfell Tower meetings when it was discovered that most of the people supposedly in need of aid, and succour, and, of course ‘Compensation’ could not understand the leaflets and notices which were supposed to inform them what was being done for them.

As for the actual Tower disaster, and the lunatics’ attempt to be in charge of the bloody asylum by stating that only ‘their choice’ for Chairmanship of the Inquiry would suit their needs and demands, I have already stated, quite firmly, my views on that particular subject. But this particular notion that the ‘survivors’, and that denotes people who were actually SUPPOSED to be living in the Tower, were to be given translations in up to twenty-eight languages on an immediate basis is just plain daft. Councils all over this Nation spend thousands on translators ‘just in case’ a wandering Ethiopian asylum seeker, who only speaks one of two hundred dialects of eighty-three different languages drops by for reassurance, or for Benefit information; which is of course their divine ‘Human right’.

So the Guardian steps up to the plate, and states that the Council just isn’t bothered to help the deprived and abandoned survivors. Survivors were treated badly, the community, on the whole, was ignored and treated as an inconvenience by those in charge. For many, this is too hard to believe. So picture this: we had to fight for even the most basic communication. After eight days, there was a physical sign for the first time. Eight days, no signage, no information. This is for those who are fluent in English; it took 22 days for something in Arabic, Kensington’s second language.

I presume that all the Benefit Claim forms were satisfactorily and legally completed?

Where were the signs pointing towards:-

Kensington and Chelsea College – Chelsea Centre Classes in:

  • Arts, Crafts and Interior Design
  • Business Studies and Management
  • Computers
  • Construction
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages

This is the Country which has, usually unwillingly, given you refuge. Why don’t you do something positive in return, and learn English?

The Law has spoken!

We have travelled this path before. With Debbie Purdy, with Craig Ewart, with Chris Woodhead; along with many, many others who have not caught the headlines.

Parliament has decided,  and has rejected the path towards Euthanasia. The Courts have spoken, that the Law, as interpreted by those same Courts, is firm on this matter. To assist someone to die is illegal, is against the Law.

Individuals who have challenged the Law have lost, every time. Some, like Tony Nicklinson, choose the legal route, who denied himself food, but died from pneumonia.

Noel Conway wants to die on his terms. That is against the Law. Mr. Conway wants to die with drug assistance from medical people. But Mr. Conway has the choice, if he wishes, to die tomorrow. All he has to do is refuse his ventilator, and he suffocates; he can deny himself food, and he dies from starvation. Suicide is a straight-forward option, and no-one can stop him; but he wants someone else to do the dirty work, he wants someone to feed him the pill, he wants someone else to be involved, and that, folks, is simply against the Law!

So what is his problem?
