United States of America has many problems. Regardless of the party in
the presidency, the government becomes more socialistic. Immigration is
out of control and multiculturalism is dismantling traditional America.
Plus, there’s the general all-around decadence of our society.
But it’s not just our country – such problems affect the Western world in general.
fellow English-speaking countries have these same problems and politically
speaking, have slid farther downhill than we have.
In England, significant restrictions have been put on free speech, gun rights have been taken away and the UK is losing its sovereignty to the European Union. Not only that, but mass immigration combined with multiculturalism is leading to the Islamization of Britain. Mohammed is now the third-most popular name for newborn baby boys in England, and the most popular in the city of London. The Muslim population is growing 10 times faster than the general population.
Here’s one recent outrage in the formerly-Great Britain. Ben and Sharon Vogelenzang, a Liverpool couple who operate a hotel, have been charged under Section 5 of the Public Order Act for “causing harassment, alarm or distress.”
The Vogelenzangs’ crime? In a private conversation with a Muslim woman who was staying at their hotel, the couple criticized Islam. The Muslim woman complained to authorities, so here they are under indictment.
Outrageous, isn’t it, especially when you consider that Muslims in Britain are free to openly attack British society and promote its downfall.
But that’s what multiculturalism means in Western societies – defending the natives and privileging the foreigners – especially dangerous foreigners.
future of England looks bleak. But there are signs of life in the old
Mother Country yet. I read recently of a mayor in an English town who
has a lot of spunk.
The mayor’s name is Peter Davies, who was recently elected mayor of Doncaster (approximate population 70,000) and took office in June. Davies belongs to the small English Democrats party (not to be confused with the American Democratic party).
Here’s a description of what Davies has done as mayor. I quote from Gerald Warner writing in the Telegraph, The Beginning of the End for Political Correctness: The Counter-Revolution Has Begun in Doncaster:
“In his first week in office [Davies] cut his own salary from £73,000 to £30,000, which is putting one’s money where one’s mouth is. He also scrapped the mayoral limousine. He is ending Doncaster’s twinning with five towns around the world, an arrangement which he describes as ‘just for people to fly off and have a binge at the council’s expense’. He intends now to reduce (that’s right, reduce) council tax by 3 per cent this year.”
And check this out:
“The 'diversity' portfolio has been abolished from the council’s cabinet. From next year no more funding will be given to the town’s ‘Gay Pride’ event, on the grounds that people do not need to parade their sexuality, whatever it may be, at taxpayers’ expense. Black History Month, International Women’s Day and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month are similarly destined to become history.”
I like this too:
funding of translation services for immigrants has been scrapped because
he believes incomers should take the trouble to learn English. Officials
have been ordered to abandon bureaucratic gobbledegook language. Davies
is saving the taxpayers £80,000 by disaffiliating from the pointless
Local Government Association and the Local Government Information Unit.
He aims to abolish all non-jobs on the council, as epitomised by ‘community
cohesion officers’. He is taking advice from the Taxpayers’
Alliance and the Campaign Against Political Correctness.”
And how about this?
[Davies] disregards all ‘green claptrap’, is creating more parking spaces to encourage traffic in the town for the benefit of business (‘I’m not green and I’m not conned by global warming’). He has asked the Electoral Commission to reduce the number of Doncaster’s councillors from 63 to 21 (‘If Pittsburgh can manage with nine councillors, why do we need 63?’).

England needs more mayors like Davies, and so do we, on this side of the Pond. Gerald Warner presents the Davies mayorship as a counter-revolution against liberalism. One can hope. Certainly, it does demonstrate what one politician can do if he has the courage to stand against the status quo.
