3 cheers and 3 cheers more for , Mr. Godfrey Bloom who refuses political correctness. UKIP

Rest Not So In Peace, freedom of speech.

All manner of things bug me. What else is new?  But one of the things that really makes me see red is all this false “outrage” some people claim to feel. And some who call themselves conservatives are not adverse to joining with the bleeding heart bed- wetters of the left in expressing themselves thus on the issue of race.  Even if it isn’t exactly a race issue.  Sometimes it’s a country or group of countries and a population that have shown themselves prone to the kind of comment made and recorded by a man I never heard of before today. 

He is Godfrey Bloom and I doubt I’ll ever hear of him again and you won’t either.
However, his name should be noted and remembered because he committed a crime so large, so mean, so raaaaaaacist, that his recorded comment was sent to a newspaper called the Guardian.  Think Trotsky and Reds bmews.
So you know already that Mr. Bloom is an okay guy and said nothing that should remove him from the party, that being UKIP.  A threat to the Tories as their numbers are growing, and some conservatives have left the Tory Party and have joined UKIP.
But Mr. Bloom made a boo-boo of speech.  Poor man did not think before he spoke, which is as you all know, an urgent prerequisite in these awful days of politically correct speech as well as thought.
It comes down to, just what the heck is racist and what is sexist or phobic?  I guess it’s whatever someone wants it to be, and is generally used to score points with some voters and to silence anyone on the right.  That’s because nobody on the right has any valid points and we are all bigoted and racist and so therefore have no right to an opinion or if we do then we mustn’t say it out loud else we might “outrage” and “offend” someone, somewhere.

Well, Mr. Bloom apparently caused a great deal of (bogus) outrage by referring to some countries as, “bongo-bongo land”. 
He was not the first politician to use that term btw.

In April a leaked email from Mr Bloom suggested he was concerned about excessive ‘political correctness’ among new recruits to UKIP.

Two months ago UKIP leader Nigel Farage ensured an Italian MEP was expelled from UKIP’s European alliance for saying a black minister in Italy was part of a ‘government of bongo bongo’ who would want to impose ‘tribal traditions’, and would be better suited as a housekeeper.

UKIP tell him not to repeat the phrase but say foreign aid must be debated

By TIM SHIPMAN, DEPUTY POLITICAL EDITOR and MATT CHORLEY

A senior UKIP politician has been rebuked after telling activists that Britain should not be sending aid to ‘bongo bongo land’.

Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP member of the European Parliament, suggested foreigners used aid to ‘buy Ray-Ban sunglasses’ and ‘apartments in Paris’.

As a political storm grew over the remarks, he remained defiant, insisting he was standing up for ‘ordinary people’.

But today UKIP chairman Steve Crowther said: ‘We are asking Godfrey not to use this phrase again as it might be considered disparaging by members from other countries.

‘However, foreign aid is an extremely important debate that needs wider discussion.’

Mr Bloom’s remarks emerged in the week his party is due to publish its list of approved candidates for next year’s European elections – at which the party hopes to get the biggest share of the vote.

Asked what he would do if he was reprimanded, Mr Bloom told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: ‘I’d say “Righto, sorry, sorry everybody”.

‘If I’ve offended anybody in bongo bongo land I shall write to the ambassador at the Court of St James’s and apologise to him personally.’

In the recording leaked to The Guardian he says: ‘How we can possibly be giving a billion pounds a month when we’re in this sort of debt to bongo bongo land is completely beyond me.

‘To buy Ray-Ban sunglasses, apartments in Paris, Ferraris and all the rest of it that goes with most of the foreign aid. F18s for Pakistan. We need a new squadron of F18s. Who’s got the squadrons? Pakistan, where we send the money.’

Last night a UKIP spokesman said Mr Bloom’s remarks were being ‘discussed right at the very highest level of the party’ while sources close to Mr Farage confirmed disciplinary action against Mr Bloom was being considered.

Here’s where it all begins folks.  In the class rooms of the world, ruled by who?
Give me the kiddies is the old saying.

Laura Pidcock, from campaign group Show Racism the Red Card, said: ‘What I can tell you is that in the classrooms that I visit as an anti-racism education worker, these crude stereotypes that see Britain as a civilised place and overseas as tribal is an extremely homogenising sentiment and I think it’s incredibly damaging.

SEE AND READ THE REST

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
