Good sense in unlikely places department

Kim Howells has told the Islamic lobby where to get off. As has doutbless been noted by anyone reading this, an alphabet soup of organisations with M or I in their names have been making none to subtle comments to the effect that we kaffirs have got it coming unless the UK adopts their foreign policy agenda (roughly speaking, death to Israel, massive aid to failed Muslim majority states around the world, withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan etc etc etc). Howells had this to say:

"He said: "I have no doubt that there are many issues which incite people to loath government policies but not to strap explosives to themselves and go out and murder innocent people. "There is no way of rationalising that. I think it is very, very dangerous when people who call themselves community leaders make some assumption that somehow that there's a rational connection between these two things."


Well done that man. And it isn’t the first time he has been similarly robust:

“It is not enough to assume that if people eat the right kind of muesli, go to first nights of Harold Pinter revivals and read The Independent occasionally, the drug barons of Afghanistan will go away. They will not”.

And:

When being grilled by Peter Mandelson about his leftwing past by the selection committee for the Pontypridd seat, he retorted that he had not spent "his entire life preparing to be an MP".

You can't blame the islamics for trying. They're primitive people. They demonstrate with these statements to almost comical effect how very primitive is their grasp on the concept of democracy.

But they're inching forward, advancing their agenda and tony blair's vile government is accommodating them. They have the same aim : to destroy Britain and Britishness.

Dear Mr Croydonian

My dear fellow, you have spoken well concerning Mr Howells -- a Labour politican for whom even I might be tempted to vote.

See also his robust views on the swindle that is modern art.

I am, sir,

Your faithful reader
