Corrupt local councils

Postby Gavin » 12 Mar 2013, 14:53

I notice that three years into government "Conservatives" have finally had the thought that translating all their leaflets into countless different third world languages is a gross waste of money and actually serves to divide our society rather than unite it. The Telegraph tells us:

"In one case last year Crawley Borough Council spent more than £600 translating a 12-page glossy 12-page quarterly ‘Homelink lifestyle magazine’ into Urdu after a single resident complained they couldn't read English.

In another, officials pointed out that Southwark Council offered full and free interpretation and translation of services into over 70 languages."


Benefits leaflets should never need to be translated for immigrants, because no immigrant should be entitled to any benefits without having been here working and paying taxes for a substantial length of time. That would be enough time to learn the language or go home. Further, perhaps there shouldn't need to be any leaflets at all. This is 2013 and there's free Internet access at public libraries.

I expect that when big changes come in this country people will be wanting to know who the leaders of these councils were. They'll be considered traitors. No doubt they'll be found in large detached houses, nowhere near the areas they have enriched.

I might like to emigrate to the USA at some point. Now, I speak the language already and am married to an American, but they won't even let me in unless I can show them a good healthy bank balance and prove what work I'm going to do. That's surely perfectly understandable!

It's as if the Left have been trying their best to destroy our country over the last 20 years. Even if the government shuts the doors to the UK now, which it won't, there is going to be so much "undoing" to be done.

A strong contender for the prize of most morally corrupt council must be Rotherham in South Yorkshire. Not only did the UKIP fostering scandal happen there, but it must be a real hotbed of language learning because the "Welcome to Rotherham" information packs are printed in Czech and Slovak alongside English, and books in the town's library are available in 11 different "community languages" - of course essential for a town with a massive 8.1% minority ethnic population!

In fact, the council are so in favour of promoting language learning that one girl, whose sexual abuse the council had deliberately covered up for years, was offered Urdu and Punjabi lessons to "educate her", in order that she might appreciate her vibrant and multicultural surroundings in all their glory.

When it comes to immigration policy, I always think that UKIP should mention the US, Canada and Australia more often. Surely these countries should be the example to follow.

Perhaps our American, Canadian and Australian posters could clear this up. Do Leftists there protest a lot about the 'unfairness' of the immigration policy? I'd be interested to know...

Like you say though, the other Anglophone countries ask the right questions: Have you got a skill we need? Do you speak the language well enough? Can you prove your income?

Those should be the questions that we ask in the UK.

As for learning the local language: a common complaint from the Left is that Brits who move abroad to places like France and Spain, often to retire, rarely seem to speak or learn the local language. I think the leftists just want to pin it on a kind of linguistic imperialism: as if everyone was a stubborn Englishman wanting to prove the superiority and global dominance of his own language by speaking English loudly in a Parisian bar! Perhaps the nation's linguistic shortcomings have more to do with the terrible education system (languages weren't even compulsory in our schools under Labour!). I'm sure most Brits make an effort - how successful they are is another matter.

The Left may have a point when they say that these same Brits tend to form little colonies abroad - they bring their own culture and food with them, and rarely mix with the locals, as one can see on the Spanish costas. Perhaps we have to concede on that one, I don't know...

Oh my, what a basket case Rotherham is. The folks in neighbouring Doncaster council don't exactly have a glorious history either.

People in South Yorkshire will probably keep voting for Labour though...

The main flash point regarding immigration in Australia is over (so-called) refugees and the conditions (where and how) of their detention. That policy is a bit of a mess, though I don't know too much about it these days.

Yes, Rotherham certainly seem to be the most corrupt of the lot at the moment, but who knows what else is going on in a lot of these, especially northern, Labour-run, places?

Note: Joyce Thacker still occupies her role as "Strategic Director of Children and Young People's Services" three months on from the UKIP debacle.

The local council in Woolwich, of all places, defends stocking Islamic hate books at public expense in its libraries.

That is absolutely shocking, Gavin. Islamic extremist literature made publicly available 200 metres from the spot where Islamic extremists hacked a man to death!

The comments cover pretty much everything (though some of them were extremely long and I'll confess I didn't read them).

What is interesting is the number of comments. Only 42. I'd say that a year ago or even six months ago, a story like this would have had about a thousand comments. I wonder what the explanation is? The obvious one would be that Telegraph readers are no longer concerned about Islamic extremism - that seems very unlikely indeed. It could be that they have switched off from the MSM. Alternatively, they simply don't have anything new to say about it - this is true of me, as well - because the situation is almost too absurd to make any analysis possible except that our public services, public sector and political establishment are basically working against the British people.

Re. the low number of comments - I think the fact that the article was hidden away in the Books section probably meant it was less widely read than other articles, plus the paywall.

Personally, I don't even bother reading the comments sections in the Telegraph any more on immigration/multiculture topics because we already know what they are going to say and no everyday news story like this one will shock me any more. It's much more fun, not to mention more productive, to go to the Guardian instead and join the hundred or so other people demolishing their Pravda articles claiming all is well and that diversity is our strength ;)

I think it is not a coincidence that Ed West was let go from The Telegraph while also being, in my opinion, the most truthful blogger. Just as he published his book The Diversity Illusion his services were apparently no longer required. Co-incidence? I'm doubting it. I think The Telegraph locked down a bit, concerned its advertising profits may be affected by too much truth.

As for the comments, they may be censoring those too but I think everyone is probably just a bit numb after Woolwich. The stories of appeasement come so thick and fast. People (those who care at all) must be just reeling, sick and tired of it. With things like Doreen Lawrence being appointed to the House of Lords now it's just gone surreal. So much PC, so many left-wing bureaucrats doing useless jobs, so much BBC incompetence and corruption, it's hard to even keep track of it all day to day - and this is just the stories we manage to glean from the MSM. Even UKIP seem to be failing people, which will add to the disillusionment, so they think "Where can we turn?".

All people can do is independently blog, because the MSM won't cover anything in detail. Just look after your own, highlight this stuff online with what little time you have, and vote or stand for Liberty GB - a party that is honest about what needs to be done to correct Britain's course. I can't see any other alternative at the moment.

I came across this - it's corrupt unions more than corrupt councils per se, but I thought it could go in this thread:

In a large London council, the Unison branch has about 4,500 members of whom around 25 turned up to the last meeting, where a motion was proposed condemning the Woolwich murder, the EDL and Islamic extremism. At the urging of the Socialist Workers Party, an amendment was proposed deleting the reference to Islamic extremism. It passed by 13 votes to 11.

Teignbridge council in Devon has earned its place on the list:

Council bans cabbie from displaying small St George's flag sticker after ONE complaint 'because it puts those who aren't English at a disadvantage'

The irony is that the Teignbridge council offices are in Newton Abbot, home of the UKIP headquarters.

My mother has volunteered for many years for an organisation which helps families who are having problems. She's more liberal than I am but I have been explaining that people need to be responsible for their own actions. She is starting to agree, because the organisation recently obliged her to help a woman from Bangladesh, who has not only been given a house by the council but also a £12,000 people carrier. The woman showed my mother a photo of the vehicle on her iPhone. Apparently a second house is due to be given to the woman's extended family when they arrive in the UK soon. It will be a bit cramped compared with the seven bedroom property they own in Bangladesh, said the woman, but it makes sense to be here rather than there because of the benefits.

You know something isn't quite right when that happens! Still, join the club...

I would love to know exactly which rules entitle that woman to get all that and how it has been sanctioned. She must at some point have been specifically advised by somebody that the system would allow for this, she must have had to claim for it in person and not then get laughed out of the building and the application had to have go through several people before it was processed. So many people are implicated in what is essentially a form of legalised robbery of what is their tax money just as much as anyone else's. When they see this kind of thing happening on a regular basis how can they not be disgusted by it enough to simply "lose" the paperwork?

I will try to find out more. I told her to go to the Daily Mail and blow the whistle on it. (Interesting to consider that The Guardian would probably refuse to even report the story because it is complicit in the treachery against the British people.) Meanwhile, our country is £1,377 billion in debt.

This classic comes from Sheffield Council, where no efforts are being spared to make excuses for the newly arrived Roma behaving the way they do everywhere else:

As I walked the rubbish-strewn streets with one council cabinet member – where every hole dug up for roadworks has been turned into a mini-landfill site – he suggested that the litter levels were as a result of it being a windy day. At that moment, two young Roma children were kicking a cardboard box to pieces directly in front of us.
