Adding to the points I made in the last blog post an article appeared in the Daily Telegraph by Jonathan Foreman, but was pulled from the paper, allegedly under pressure from May’s team. If this is true then this is a disgraceful attempt to interfere with the free press, and is surely a sign of worse press censorship to come, if she is elected. See the allegation at order-order:
For anyone who has followed Erdogan’s career in Turkey, alarm bells will be ringing loudly. The effect on the democratic process of a national leader who cannot stand criticism from the supposedly free press is truly chilling. Once a leader embarks on this course of action the censorship almost invariably will increase, just as a murderer will often commit further murders in an attempt to cover up the evidence of their first murder.
The article has been made available in full at Guido Fawkes blog however:
This should be read in full by everyone who shares my concern for the UK’s security and future. The article details May’s lamentable failure to secure our borders among many other failures.
The article also refers to the Muslim grooming gangs scandal. May also made a hash of appointing someone to lead another major child abuse inquiry, thereby delaying the painful process for the victims:
MAY’S PREVENT STRATEGY IS ALIENATING JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY
(As Douglas Murray pointed out some time ago).
Further to my comments on the Extremist Banning and Disruption Orders in the last post, people should also be considering the divisive “Prevent” strategy which is alienating Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Of course, everybody knows that the objective of this strategy is supposed to be to counter violent Islamic extremism, but thanks to the “politically correct” agenda of Cameron and May, in attempting to appear balanced, they have treated many non-Muslims appallingly. In 2015, only 1 in 3 of 4,000 people referred to the de-radicalization scheme were Muslims (according to Breitbart) (1).
Here are a couple of bizarre examples of the “Prevent” strategy in action – non-Muslim children reported to the authorities:
David Cameron has criticized his own government’s policy, in an echo of May’s absurdly hypocritical speech about immigration:
In another incident, a Christian union has been “prevented” from holding prayer meetings:
Strange incidents considering May is herself a Christian and the daughter of a vicar! Strange leadership from a CONSERVATIVE party!
MESSAGE TO THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY MEMBERS WHO WILL SOON BE DECIDING ON THEIR FUTURE LEADER
If Theresa May is elected she will be deeply unpopular among the general public and may well sabotage the Conservatives chances at the next general election. She will be resented by the 52% who voted to Leave the EU, because she has launched this internal power grab for the leadership despite backing Remain. Gordon Brown came to power in a similar fashion, his career was unpopular and gave the Coalition the opportunity to push Labour out at the 2010 election. Conservatives, do not make this same mistake. Elect a leader now that you can be confident will gain popularity for your party, not lose it, as May will do.
