Question Time and its aftermath

I have now seen last week’s Question Time. (I couldn’t watch it live as I refuse to pay the licence fee.)

The BBC is denying that Nick Griffin’s appearance was intended to boost viewing figures, but clearly, this was the Nick Griffin Show. The Question Time format had been changed to allow one member of the panel to be the focus, and the audience was not a representative cross-section of people living in the UK.

I have read some conspiracy theories, and I have to agree that it is odd how, by ostensibly attempting to make the BNP look bad, the result is that 22% of the electorate would consider voting for them, according to a poll conducted the day after the programme.

Former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, is upset about Griffin’s ‘despicable’ claim to represent ‘white Christians’.

As a Creationist, I realise there is only one ‘race’, the human race, so Griffin’s position on people groups is anathema to me, but none of the mainstream parties is really representing Christians, or even our wider Judeo-Christian culture, whose fair laws and tolerance, everyone benefited from.

Naturally, the hot topic on the show was immigration.

Jack Straw admitted that “There’s a worry about the scale of immigration,” however the following day (coincidentally?), a former adviser to Blair revealed that mass immigration was a deliberate plan to radically change the country.

Sayeeda Warsi, surprisingly cute for a baroness, is the “Shadow Minister for Community Cohesion and Social Action” (ahem) and reckoned that the government should be “prepared to listen”. Well, in theory.

The Baroness is a Muslim. Her opposite number in the government is Shahid Malik, a Muslim. He took over the position in the summer from Sadiq Khan, erm, a Muslim. What does this tell you about what the mainstream parties think about ‘community cohesion’?

A black lady in the audience complained about Lady Warsi’s use of “Afro-Caribbean”. Apparently, it is now ‘African-Caribbean’ with the stress on the second syllable of ‘Caribbean’, rather than the third. I remember when we were supposed to say “coloured people” and we did because we were not racists. Then we were told that this was offensive and we were to say ‘black people’ instead, which we did because we were not racists. We seem to do a lot of thinking and doing as we’re told without question.

Nick Griffin turned the immigration debate around by claiming that there is genocide against the white British culture. Indeed, this is why we are encouraged to celebrate diversity and why children are discouraged from learning about their own culture.

He said that we are the aborigines here and compared us to other aboriginal peoples in the world who are now getting better treatment. He also reminded us that two-thirds of immigrants say it is time to shut the doors. Jack Straw piped up with, “We don’t want to pull up the drawbridge.”

We know that, Straw, and we know why. You are traitors; social engineering criminals using immigration to wipe out British culture and sovereignty. Nick Griffin is right on this point and YOU, Straw, and your cohorts are responsible for the rise and rise of the BNP.

The only question other than race and immigration seemed to come from a previously selected member of the audience who asked the panellists’ thoughts on Jan Moir, the Daily Mail columnist who dissed civil partnerships after the untimely death of Stephen Gately.

Once everyone was absolutely certain that the BNP are racist, it was time to expose them as ‘homophobic’ too. Griffin said he thought that Jan Moir’s piece was disgraceful and that people should be allowed to behave as they want in their own bedrooms, but he stated that most people thought the sight of two men kissing was “creepy”.

He also said that people should not “preach homosexuality to schoolchildren”.

Surely the majority agrees with him on his last two points.

What annoys me the most is that the self-righteous jump on the anti-BNP bandwagon to cover up their own evils. Yes, the BNP is racist and I won’t be voting for them for that reason, but where is the same level of resentment against New Labour? They are the ones who have done so much damage to the country that it may never be completely healed.

The plonkers with placards who tried to prevent a democratically elected British politician from appearing on a political TV show would have been better marching on Downing Street and demanding Gordon Brown’s head.

But, as I wrote earlier, we seem to do a lot of thinking and doing as we’re told without question.

    Racism begins with our families, parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandparents, people we admire, respect and love.

    However, as we grow and mature we come to the realization that what we were told by our family when we were children were slanted lies base on their prejudices. We realize that most people are like ourselves and not so different and want the same things, like a home, steady work, a Medicare plan and schools for our children (if you travel you will see this). We realize that most people are of good hearts and goodwill.

    This reminds me of a parable from the good book where a Levite and Priest come upon a man who fell among thieves and they both individually passed by and didn’t stop to help him.

    Finally a man of another race came by, he got down from his beast, decided not to be compassionate by proxy and got down with the injured man, administered first aid, and helped the man in need.

    Jesus ended up saying, this was the good man, this was the great man, because he had the capacity to project the “I” into the “thou,” and to be concerned about his fellow man.

    You see, the Levite and the Priest were afraid, they asked themselves, “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”

    But then the Good Samaritan came by. And he reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”

    That’s the question before us. The question is not, “If I stop to help our fellow man (immigrant) in need, what will happen to me?” The question is, “If I do not stop to help our fellow man, what will happen to him or her?” That’s the question.

    This current climate of blaming others for our woes is not new. We have had this before and we have conquered it.

    Remember “Evil flourishes when good men (and women) do nothing”. Raise your voices with those of us who believe we are equal and we can win this battle again.

    Hello Paul,

    I think you’ve explained why the government has been encouraging mass immigration. Because a lot of people don’t want to integrate, particularly those coming here, by the way. Thus divide and rule follows.

    The problem with ‘equality’ is that it too is being used to cause division in society because with all these ‘rights’ flying around, they are going to collide sometimes.

    I think it was Aristotle who said: “The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.”

    Apart from all that, yes, we should be like the Good Samaritan.

    Those pesky old human rights again eh Stewart?
    I guess you really don’t want to be accorded human rights then?

  4. Stewart Cowan says:

    The thing is, Mr Gibbs, that I do expect my rights, but those rights shouldn’t include forcing other people to believe the same as me. Unfortunately, we have a system that often favours a criminal’s ‘right’ over his victim’s. What we have is a hierarchical system that isn’t fair. I could go on about it all night, but won’t.

    The ‘human rights’ industry favours lawyers and criminals. Maybe you think this is ‘right’.

    Lawyers ARE criminals.

    That goes without saying.
