The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth from Richard Littlejohn. A worthy read.

Littlejohn is one of the very best at what he does, and I have yet to find him mistaken, unfair or wrong. Granted, I’m partial so I might miss something here and there. I might, but I kinda doubt that.
My previous post on this subject will with this editorial, make things even more clear for American readers. You folks at home in the USA have no idea how serious this problem is.  Sure, we have our leaky borders and problems with immigration both legal and otherwise.  But nothing like this. 
I seriously doubt America would have this exact same problem. First, Americans wouldn’t put up with it from the get-go.  I don’t think we’d allow it to become so well entrenched.  But then again, ya never do know for certain. Do we?

Some translations for those who may not be familiar with terms.
A boot sale would be about the same as a flea market.

Tarmac gang:  Often guys will arrive in a truck loaded with asphalt and claim that they have left over from a previous job and will relay driveway cheap.
It’s that alright.

Wigan Council’s consumer watchdogs are warning residents to be on their guard against a gang of unscrupulous workers who are charging elderly and vulnerable people top dollar for rock bottom work.

In the past week alone an 83 year-old Lowton woman has already shelled out more than £300 for sub-standard repair work to her drive.

While neighbours in Whelley have also been stung by the same firm to the tune of hundreds of pounds for pretty shoddy block paving work.

Residents of an Oxfordshire town are being warned about a group of men who are visiting homes and offering to tarmac driveways.


Are you sitting comfortably? Let’s go tarmacking with Teabag, Tess and Toby

Are you sitting comfortably, children? Then I’ll begin. Once upon a time there was Janet and John, who lived with their mummy and daddy in a neat suburban house. Their harmless adventures helped millions of children to read.

Now meet Tess the Traveller, her son Toby and their dog Teabag, the new stars of a reading book for three to seven-year-olds being distributed in primary schools across the country.

It’s part of a government initiative aimed at promoting tolerance and understanding towards gipsies and travellers.

Needless to say, Tess, Toby and Teabag lead an airbrushed, romanticised existence. This well-scrubbed trio roam the land, attending traditional gipsy dances, horse fairs and even an eco-camp.

Nowhere is there any mention of Toby’s father. Tess is a strong, capable single mum who can turn her hand to anything, including mending a flat tyre on their caravan.

The ‘diversity’ brigade can’t bring themselves to acknowledge that fathers have any part to play in bringing up children. I’m surprised that they didn’t make Tess a lesbian, who became pregnant by artificial insemination using sperm donated by a transgendered friend.

If they were really striving for authenticity, Tess would be married, probably from the age of 14. Travellers are one of the last bastions of both the nuclear and extended family.

In a nod to accuracy, Tess makes her money at car boot sales, although the stories don’t elaborate on where she gets her merchandise. Car boot sales are notorious for the disposal of stolen property.

Here in the real world, Tess would be claiming welfare benefits while pocketing the cash without declaring it to the taxman.

She would be driving a £50,000 Toyota Landcruiser (running on red agricultural diesel) with a stolen lawn-mower in the boot; living on either an illegal camp site or in a subsidised council house; and running a Tarmacking gang.

Toby wouldn’t look like one of the gang from Scooby Doo. He’d be a snot-nosed scruff begging outside the local pound shop, accompanied by Teabag, a snarling, mangy mutt on a piece of string, rather than a playful contender for Crufts.

Over the past few years, travellers have been transformed into a protected species, their lifestyle subsidised and proselytised.

They are treated as an oppressed ethnic minority, even though the term ‘travelling community’ encompasses everyone from genuine gipsies and Irish tinkers to Roma criminal gangs and assorted hippie throwback layabouts.

One thing they all seem to have in common is a reluctance to travel anywhere - or, at least, in the case of the Irish and Eastern European contingents, to stay put once they’ve arrived in England, where a buffet of benefits is laid before them.

Many live blameless lives of self-sufficiency, in particular law-abiding circus folk, who move from town to town providing innocent pleasure at rip-off prices. Others, though, are a menace to society, earning a living from dubious practice and outright criminality.

I bet the horse fair attended by Tess, Toby and Teabag didn’t have to be stormed by a police armed response unit, as happened recently at a similar gathering in Kenilworth, following reports that revellers were firing guns and shoplifting.

There’s a whole industry dedicated to pandering to the needs of travellers, even though most contribute absolutely nothing to society.

Yesterday, as Irish tinkers demonstrated in Basildon, Essex, against a long-overdue order to evict them from Europe’s largest illegal settlement, it was revealed that £4.7million of Lottery money has been spent helping travellers to subvert the planning laws.

Wherever these camps are established, there is invariably an increase in crime. Even when they do move on, they leave behind scorched earth and piles of rubbish.

Yet the travellers are indulged by the authorities, while law-abiding, taxpaying local householders who voice their complaints are routinely threatened with prosecution for ‘racism’.

As I reported recently, Warwickshire Constabulary even threw a pikeys’ picnic on the lawn of police headquarters in an effort to improve relations with the ‘community’ following the shootout at the Kenilworth horse fair.

Elsewhere, police have been offering free driving lessons to travellers to try to persuade them to take a test, tax and insure their cars, all of which are apparently alien to their ‘culture’.

Mobile benefit offices have been set up at illegal camps to spare them the inconvenience of having to travel in to town to sign on. And the NHS has ordered that gipsies be fast-tracked at GPs’ surgeries.

But our children won’t be reading about any of this in the fantasy world of Tess, Toby and Teabag.

Are you still sitting comfortably?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

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.
