“Multiculturalism” in the UK

Videos are NSFW.

I came across these on Twitter the other night. They come from a man named Steve Laws who lives in Kent, UK. He tweets alot about immigration, illegal immigration and border issues in his country.

Steve’s Twitter bio states, “I report what I see.”

He has over 10,000 followers yet no bluecheck mark. The videos below that he tweeted could be coming from somewhere else in the world besides the UK yet I don’t see why he’d gaslight. He seems like a rational kind of guy concerned with immigration over there. As he recently tweeted: “If the government won’t protect our borders then we’re going to have to do it ourselves. We are leaving behind a serious and very dangerous problem that our children will have to deal with.

Here’s the reason for his concern:

Appears that the US is not the only country dealing with current racial divides and its associated violence.

Meet the democratic socialist (and poet!) running against Nancy Pelosi

Meet the quality of candidates that California has to offer their constituents:

Nancy Pelosi has been in office since 1987. Her current term expires January 3, 2021. And their ain’t NO WAY she’s giving up her power.

Given the background and qualifications of this democratic socialist running against Nancy, Shahid Buttar, she’s more than likely to win another re-election (unless by some miracle a republican gets elected).

Let’s learn a bit more about Shahid, shall we? From his web site:

“Since graduating from Stanford Law School in 2003, Shahid has worked in both San Francisco and Washington as a legal advocate, a non-profit leader, a grassroots organizer, and a poet & musician. His wide-ranging work reflects a commitment to intersectional feminism, democratic socialism, and international human rights. His passions have long aligned around a common purpose: building the movement to place human rights and human needs like peace and climate justice before corporate profits.

In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has also advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to examples of counter-cultural activism promoting progressive politics at the intersection of art and organizing.

An immigrant of Pakistani descent from the United Kingdom and the youngest of four children, Shahid grew up in the midwest and first came to the Bay Area in 2000 to study law at Stanford.

While a student at Stanford Law School, he served as Executive Editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and professor Lawrence Lessig’s teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He also spear-headed a campaign to promote sustainable building practices by the university, a day of action to shut down a Lockheed Martin facility, and a student strike against the war in Iraq.

After growing immersed in the movement to end the war, Shahid moved to Washington to work for Heller Ehrman LLP, a San Francisco-based law firm that later collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis. His work there included litigation championing the right to marry the partner of one’s choice—nearly 10 years before the Democratic establishment finally embraced marriage equality—and an appeal defending bipartisan campaign finance reform from being undermined by the Federal Election Commission.”

Outside of his work as an advocate and organizer, Shahid performs as a DJ, MC, and poet. He also organizes artists, and has co-founded several collectives of politicized performance artists on both coasts.”

Some of his endorsements include left-wing actress Susan Sarandon, the anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, race-baiter Dr. Cornel West and faux black man Shaun King.

Stellar list of endorsements ‘ya got there, Shahid.

Collateral damage: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in UK community not explained by Wuhan virus

As if no one could have predicted this…

The BMJ (a peer-reviewed medical journal, formerly known as the British Medical Journal) published an article this week entitled, Covid-19: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in community is not explained by covid-19.”

The articles findings include the following:

Only a third of the excess deaths seen in the community in England and Wales can be explained by covid-19, new data have shown.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) data, which cover deaths in hospitals, care homes, private homes, hospices, and elsewhere, show that 6035 people died as a result of suspected or confirmed covid-19 infection in England and Wales in the week ending 1 May 2020 (where deaths were registered up to 9 May), a decline of 2202 from the previous week.

Although the number of deaths in care homes has fallen for the second week in a row, more covid related deaths are being reported in care homes than in hospitals and are tailing off more slowly.

However, David Spiegelhalter, chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge, said that covid-19 did not explain the high number of deaths taking place in the community.

At a briefing hosted by the Science Media Centre on 12 May he explained that, over the past five weeks, care homes and other community settings had had to deal with a “staggering burden” of 30 000 more deaths than would normally be expected, as patients were moved out of hospitals that were anticipating high demand for beds.

Of those 30 000, only 10 000 have had covid-19 specified on the death certificate. While Spiegelhalter acknowledged that some of these “excess deaths” might be the result of underdiagnosis, “the huge number of unexplained extra deaths in homes and care homes is extraordinary. When we look back . . . this rise in non-covid extra deaths outside the hospital is something I hope will be given really severe attention.

He added that many of these deaths would be among people “who may well have lived longer if they had managed to get to hospital.”

Good thing everyone around the world shutdown their economies and healthcare systems in such a panic. All in order to “save just one life.”

UK Teenager fined for shouting ‘is it a boy or is it a girl?’ at transgender police community support officer

If you are going to be a police officer, you need pretty thick skin. “Live PD” is proof of that. Alas, the UK has turned into a modern day “1984.”

From Yahoo: A teenager has been fined for abusing a transgender police community support officer by yelling: “Is it a boy or is it a girl?”

Declan Armstrong, 19, was ordered to pay £590 at Mold Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday after he was found guilty of making the comments following a trial.

PCSO Conner Freel

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, said PCSO Connor Freel had been in uniform on foot patrol in Mold, north Wales, in October 2019 when he passed Armstrong, who was with a friend.

She told the court that Armstrong shouted “very loudly, “is it a boy or is it a girl?” and said that when Mr. Freel looked over, Armstrong made the comment loudly again.

Ms. Jackson said: “Due to his transgender, when Connor heard Declan say what he said, it left him feeling upset and embarrassed.”

She read out a statement from Mr. Freel, who was born female and transitioned, which went over his work to raise awareness of transphobic hate crime, including being part of a victim support campaign and television interviews.

He said he knew there could be repercussions by being in the public eye but had wanted to show vulnerable people that being transgender is not something to be hidden. However, he said that after this incident he was reluctant to patrol alone.

“To have something shouted at him that had such personal connotations whilst he was on his own in the middle of a public place, that was rather busy due to market day footfall, did leave him vulnerable, distressed and embarrassed,” Ms. Jackson said.

Armstrong, of Victory Court, Mold, was convicted of a public order offence after a trial but has continued to deny he made the comments, and his defence lawyer Gary Harvey said he “doesn’t hold any prejudice against anyone in society”.

The court was told that Armstrong is a carer for a man he considers his father, was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and suffered from anxiety and depression.

Armstrong has also been given a 12-week curfew besides the £590 he has been ordered to pay.

UK company creates knives with square tips amid record rise in stabbings

From NY Post: A cutlery company in England has designed a new line of kitchen knives with square tips in an effort to reduce the rising knife crime that has plagued the United Kingdom.

The Viners firm, founded in Sheffield in 1908, created the “Assure” range of blunt-tipped knives after knife-related crime reached a record high in England and Wales last year.

In Oct. 2019, the BBC reported new figures had shown a 7 percent rise in knife crime — a record high — in the months from June 2018 to June 2019. The data showed offenses involving a knife or sharp instrument increased from 41,000 to over 44,000 in those 12 months.

“With knife-related crime incidents at a record high and a reported 285 fatalities in the last 12 months alone, the UK Government has taken the decision to reclassify kitchen knives as an offensive weapon with the new Offensive Weapons Act 2019, leading some retailers to remove single knives from sale in retail stores,” the company said in a news release.

The firm said in response to the new legislation, it designed the square-ended knives that are “shaped to reduce and prevent injuries, accidents and fatalities” while still maintaining their functionality.

The knives were “repeatedly tested to ensure the tip does not pierce skin intentionally or otherwise,” Viners told the Independent.

The knives are available to order on Viners’ website with prices ranging between $4.55 and $18.87.

Transgender propaganda: “Girl’s brave journey as one of the youngest children in the UK to begin the transition process”

A lost Ash…

A three-year-old doesn’t have the mental capacity to understand much of anything, let alone their “gender identity.”

At three (when this boy realized he was born in the wrong body) one is barely able to string a sentence together, can only county to ten, name a few colors of Crayola crayons, follow three-step directions, and begins to understand the concept of “same” and “different.”

Yet somehow this child was able to fully grasp the concept – at three years old – of being born in the “wrong body.”

Yea, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

From Yahoo: A 12-year-old, who is one of Britain’s youngest transgender children, has started transitioning after realising she was born in the wrong body aged just three.

Though Ash Lammin was born male, her mum says she insisted that she was a girl as soon as she could speak.

Terri Lammin, 43, said it was “heartbreaking” watching her daughter, who was born Ashton, grow up confused and upset by her body. “By age five, she was asking ‘when is someone going to chop my winky off?’, and questioning why she had it at all,” Terri explains.

According to her mum, Ash is the perfect example of a child who has been born in the wrong body.

Now, aged almost 13, the youngster is embarking on a lengthy journey to transition her gender from male to female at an NHS-run clinic, becoming one of the youngest children in the UK to do so.

Ash, who changed her name by deed poll to Ashley when she was eight, will start by taking hormone blockers to halt the onset of puberty.

It isn’t a decision the family have taken lightly, and Ash has researched the process incessantly. She eventually hopes to have a womb transplant so that she can be a mother when she’s older.

In response to critics who have accused Terri of taking drastic decisions on behalf of a child who is too young to know better, the mum points out that Ash will take the blockers until she is 18. At that point, she herself will decide whether to go ahead with gender reassignment surgery.

If she decides not to go ahead with it, Ash will come off the blockers, and puberty will kick in just a few years later than her peers.

Her mum says she never thought Ash’s confusion about her gender was a phase, but at first she found it difficult to know how best to react. “When she was three she said to me, ‘I’m a boy because you gave me a boy’s name – it’s your fault,’” Terri explains. “I remember feeling horrible, because she blamed me. I’d never come across it before and I just went along with it. I just thought ‘if he’s happy, well that’s the main thing.”

But life became much harder for the family when Ash started at primary school. “I sent her to school in a boy’s uniform. I felt awful, she didn’t want to wear it and I was making her,” Terri explains.

“The school were great. The headmaster at the time said ‘if you think it’s going to make life easier then bring Ash in a girl’s uniform’, so I did.

“I was in a right state. I thought ‘everybody is going to think I’m weird’ – but Ash loved it. “Before, when I was taking her into school, she was biting me and kicking me, she didn’t want to go in. As soon as she put the girl’s uniform on, she wanted to go every day.”

Despite the school’s willingness to help and the kindness of Ash’s classmates, Terri says that other parents weren’t so tolerant of the change, and would leave Ash out of social events and complain.

Ash is now being home-schooled, and Terri is calling for better education within schools to teach children about transgender people.

She said: “I’d like to see the subject of transgender people included in some lessons, like there are about same-sex families. There needs to be more about liking people for who they are, not what they are.

Unsurprisingly, the bullying has taken its toll on Ash mental health, with the youngster suffering from anxiety and her mum saying she has admitted to wanting to die. “Some days she says ‘I’m so glad I’m me’, but other days she feels terrible. She asks why it has to happen to her and she hates herself,” Terri says.

UK children as young as six to be given compulsory self-touching lessons

From Daily Mail: Children as young as six are being taught about touching or ‘stimulating’ their own genitals as part of classes that will become compulsory in hundreds of primary schools.

Some parents believe the lessons – part of a controversial new sex and relationships teaching programme called All About Me – are ‘sexualising’ their young children. One couple told how they were so disturbed they withdrew their sons from lessons at a school where the programme is already being taught.

All About Me is being rolled out across 241 primaries by Warwickshire County Council and could be adopted by other local authorities next year as part of the Government’s overhaul of Relationship and Sex Education (RSE).

Family campaigners and religious groups warned that vague guidelines issued by the Department for Education meant schools could soon be providing sexual material to young children that many parents would consider inappropriate.

Even politicians who had supported the RSE legislation expressed concern. Tory MP David Davies said: ‘I and many other parents would be furious at completely inappropriate sexual matters being taught to children as young as six. These classes go way beyond the guidance the Government is producing and are effectively sexualising very young children.

Documents obtained by The Mail on Sunday detail how All About Me classes involve pupils aged between six and ten being told by teachers that there are ‘rules about touching yourself’. An explanation of ‘rules about self-stimulation’ appears in the scheme’s Year Two lesson plan for six and seven-year-olds.

Under a section called Touching Myself, teachers are advised to tell children that ‘lots of people like to tickle or stroke themselves as it might feel nice’. They are also instructed to inform youngsters that this may include touching their ‘private parts’ and, that while some people may say this behaviour is ‘dirty’, it is in fact ‘very normal’.

However, the youngsters are warned it is ‘not polite’ to touch themselves in public – it is an activity they should do when alone in the bath, shower or in bed.

In the same lesson, children are given scenarios which they must judge to be ‘OK’ or ‘not OK’.

In one, pupils are told that when a girl called Autumn ‘has a bath and is alone she likes to touch herself between her legs. It feels nice’.

At this point, teachers are advised to remind the students of the ‘rules about self-stimulation’.

The guidance on touching is repeated in lesson plans for Years Four and Five, involving pupils aged eight to ten.

As part of the Government’s RSE reforms, all primary schools will be required to teach compulsory relationships education from next September. It includes topics about families, friendships, online relationships, privacy and ‘being safe’. Sex education tailored to the needs of their pupils is also recommended, but not mandatory.

Warwickshire has introduced relationship lessons in some primaries ahead of the nationwide launch, including sessions addressing ‘self-stimulation’. From next September, parents will not be able to withdraw children from these lessons.

Parents at Coten End Primary School in Warwick met sex education consultant Jonny Hunt (who has his tweets protected), one of the architects of the All About Me scheme, in June and raised concerns about some of its content.

Asked why ‘self-stimulation’ appeared in the Year Five lesson plans and why it was not in the non-compulsory sex education element of the programme, he said: ‘Actually we refer to self-stimulation or self-soothing throughout the programme in earlier years as well. This is not sex education but actually information around safe and appropriate touching. However uncomfortable adults may find it, children of all ages will self-stimulate from time to time. They may do this when anxious or simply because it feels nice.’

UK children as young as three could receive help to change their gender from NHS via Skype call

From Daily Mail: Children as young as three could be helped to change gender by doctors on the basis of just a Skype phone call under plans being considered by the NHS.

A controversial clinic, which helps thousands of children to change gender every year, says that it has become so overwhelmed by patients that it could be forced to set children on a path to a new sex on the basis of ‘telemedical’ appointments.

The startling development is likely to cause an outcry among critics of the clinic’s work, who will argue that it is impossible to evaluate a child’s suitability for such radical treatment over the phone.

Internal reports produced for the directors of the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, argue that without such radical changes the clinic could be forced to shut down due to an exodus of demoralised staff.

The plan for sex change by Skype comes as the clinic faces growing pressure from psychologists who say it uses untested drugs on troubled children and ‘rushes’ them towards becoming transgender.

Last year 2,590 children were referred to the clinic, a rise of more than 400 per cent since 2013, leading to a two-year waiting list.

Ten of the children were aged three or four and dozens more were of primary-school age. The treatment includes giving the children hormone-blocking drugs.

The GIDS reports, which have been seen by this newspaper, reveal that the clinic has started testing ‘some of the practicalities involved in identifying young people and families to be considered for treatment appointments delivered with telemedicine’.

It uses technology such as Skype and FaceTime to allow doctors to diagnose and prescribe treatment for patients hundreds or thousands of miles away.

The reports, which were presented to the directors last month, reveal that publicity about the clinic’s work has led to a surge in demand for its services and an increase in waiting times, leading to a growing burden on staff.

The report warns that the situation was becoming so serious that ‘the service could be decommissioned by the NHS’.

Last night, a spokesman for the Tavistock and Portman Trust said: ‘Using digital technologies to increase efficiency and to enhance patient experience where appropriate is an area of development across the NHS.

‘The Trust is working to minimise waiting times and make clinical support easier to access, including eliminating travel time for young people and their families, which will also allow us to offer appointments earlier and later in the day.

‘As with the rest of the NHS, innovations like telemedicine are an addition and will not mean the removal or inability to access face-to-face consultations.

‘The Trust and GIDS welcome all open and informed discussion and decision-making around the best way to support young people experiencing difficulties or distress around their gender identity.’

An NHS source said that NHS England ‘would continue to work with the Trust and the service to seek changes that will address waiting times and support continued improvement of the service delivered’.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gets heckled by Brexit protesters outside Parliament

Look who gets armed body guards while the subjects in his city have no right to self defense.

The comments on the YouTube video indicate that Londoners are completely fed up with him. Maybe next time when they vote they’ll remember that elections have consequences.

And man, I didn’t realize what a short man Sadiq is. Looks like he’s not even 5 feet tall.
