We really do live in completely different worlds. The world seen from Westminster appears to exist exactly as they have created it from their Mount Olympus. The little people go about their daily lives as directed, following all the rules and happily participating in the great democratic experiment with a full understanding because all politicians, all the time, are ‘absolutely clear’ in everything they say and do.
The world of academia, on the other hand has a rarefied existence outside the experience of the hoi polloi. Professors gleefully create havoc by assigning equal status to every grievance, every minority concern and every proclivity, which inclusive mindset has an outcome the very opposite of what they tell themselves they intended. That is to exclude, for all practical purposes, anybody who dares to doubt the absolute god-given rights of humans to identify as whatever they wish and be totally accepted as such. Instead of guiding children into worthless adulthood they are turning adults into helpless infants.
Meanwhile, in Leicester, the small matter of modern-day slavery, illegal immigration and exploitation of people with no recognised status who are effectively treated as sub-human, has gone unremarked by all in positions of oversight and power. The headline in the Daily Mirror yesterday also ignored the reality which ordinary working British people have been trying to talk about for decades. Leicester is in lockdown following a spike in corona virus diagnoses, but what could be the reason?
According to the report in Mirror it was “partly caused by failure to translate coronavirus advice”. So, not due to sweatshops illegally paying half the minimum wage and continuing to work, cheek-by-jowl throughout the lockdown? Not due to bloated and inbred multigenerational families living in slum conditions, then? As a Twitter interlocutor suggested yesterday “The world's gone mad... Might as well claim that WW2 was partly caused by the Polish having a border with Germany.”
But the real point is that it has been convenient – or lucrative – for those responsible for safeguarding our civilisation to ignore the abuses that have been going on ever since we began importing third world communities and failing to integrate them. Cultural sensitivities and a fear of being called racist has caused thousands of young girls to be groomed and abused over many years and still those reports have not been fully recognised and released. And now people are actually dying because of the self-interests of the same ivory tower dwellers.
Different standards, different cultures with different prices on human life. Many women living as second-class citizens within second class communities, or as virtual slaves within their often-unrecognised, certainly illegal, polygamous marriages. Beds in sheds, garages converted to overcrowded houses without planning permission. Workers treated as little more than business chattels with the threat of being reported to the immigration authorities enough to keep them in line. These are not the trappings of a civilised country in the twenty-first century AD.
Those who exploit them contribute nothing to the above board economy of this country and I can't help thinking that Britain would be a nicer, healthier, wealthier place if all of this was closed down and the perpetrators shipped back to their villages. They are not so many generations removed and many maintain the links. There has been much hand-wringing today with those who formerly turned a blind eye now saying they have been trying to tackle it for years but haven’t the authority or funding to act. Odd then, that those same people seem to have no trouble imposing punitive sanctions on people flying British flags or having the wrong opinion on social media. Think about that for a while.
