Sheffield Roma Riots 2014 Warns Labour MP David Blunkett - Immigration Cultural Catastrophe

Local / Sheffield Jan 17, 2014 - 01:13 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat


It is not often that left wing normally pro-immigration Labour MP's can be found to be warning of the consequences of mass immigration, and not just any old back bencher but the former Labour Home Secretary David Blunkett was recently widely reported in the mainstream media warning of the consequences of immigration in the form of the ongoing influx of Roma communities from eastern europe into his home city of Sheffield where the Roma population has soared from less one hundred 8 years ago to well over 4,000 today, concentrated in pockets of the city such as Page Hall, that he warns could spill over into violence on the streets due to the clash of cultures between the indigenous / settled communities and the huge Roma influx underway as Czech, Slovak and Romanian Roma villages are literally moving lock stock and barrel to places such as Sheffield to draw on 15-20 times the financial value of benefits and social services that they are in receipt of in the likes of Romania.

BBC - David Blunkett riot fear over Roma migrant tensions

Tensions between local people and Roma migrants could escalate into rioting unless action is taken to improve integration, David Blunkett has warned.

The former home secretary fears a repeat of race riots that hit northern cities in 2001.

His concerns centre on the Page Hall area of Sheffield, where Roma migrants have set up home.

"We have got to change the behaviour and the culture of the incoming community, the Roma community, because there's going to be an explosion otherwise. We all know that."

"If everything exploded, if things went really wrong, the community would obviously be devastated. We saw this in Bradford, Burnley and Oldham all those years ago when I first became home secretary. We saw that the community itself were the losers."

He called on the Roma community in Page Hall to change aspects of their "behaviour", such as congregating on the streets on summer evenings and dumping litter, which he said was "aggravating" local people.

‘The Roma youngsters have come from a background even more different culturally, because they were living in the edge of woods, not going to school, not used to the norms of everyday life. We’ve got to change that.’

"We've got to be tough and robust in saying to people you are not in a downtrodden village or woodland, because many of them don't even live in areas where there are toilets or refuse collection facilities. You are not there any more, you are here - and you've got to adhere to our standards, and to our way of behaving, and if you do then you'll get a welcome and people will support you." - David Blunkett - Sheffield - Brightside MP, Former Labour Home Secretary

It is highly ironic that whilst in power David Blunkett did nothing to avert the unfolding immigration catastrophe, but now in opposition he has become a highly vocal critic of the Coalition governments immigration policies despite the fact that the immigration catastrophe is a direct consequence of the last catastrophic Labour government. But now David Blunkett has the urge to protect the people of his home city of Sheffield lest they in disgust vote him out at the next general election for mass immigration has always been a Labour tactic to retain power in cities such as Sheffield, for instance mass immigration enabled Labour to size power back from the Liberal Democrats in 2011 as over 90% of immigrants tend to vote Labour as the traditional party of immigration.

In fact mass immigration of the 2000's was a Labour government conspiracy that attempted to hide from the people of Britain their plan for the wholesale importation of new Labour voters to bolster their election winning chances, the result was that even an economy in a state of economic collapse failed to secure the Conservatives an election victory in 2010.

Cultural Catastrophe

Rather than a clash of cultures what lies at the heart of the building flash points is more of a cultural catastrophe, something that I have written on many times over the years, as over several decades many communities have settled in areas of Sheffield amongst other large cities, with most failing to integrate whilst wholly retaining their cultural identities and practices from their home countries that sows the seeds for future conflict in the ghettoised communities such as those referred to by David Blunkett.

For instance muslim communities such as Bangladeshi's, Pakistanis' Indians, and North African's tend to attempt to follow the example of the times of the Prophet as an idealised way of how one should live in this life to gain access to paradise in the next life. Invariably this involves a high degree of control of the women in the families at least right up to the point of marriage, as women are forbidden to talk to those outside of the immediate family and therefore like low category prisoners are only let out on licence which should they break any of the terms of their families license will be treated as virtual house slaves to be imprisoned within the homes four walls that could result in the most extreme punishment of all which is to be forced into an arranged or more accurately deranged marriage with a relative from the parents country of origin.

Whilst the act of taking ones daughter or in even some cases son's under duress to ones country of origin to marry a relative is rare occurrence i.e. probably less than 8% of arranged marriages are forced marriages, however it is the prevalent over hanging threat of what could befall any daughter who should step out of line is that which encourages manifestation of far greater religious observance amongst the second generation muslim immigrants (born in Britain) than that which the parents generation had themselves observed as they had in large part enjoyed freedom away from their parents and family when they first settled in Britain, however a freedom that they have subsequently chosen not to afford to their own children. This is illustrated by the emergence of the burka or full veil that was virtually unknown to Britain 20 years ago but is now increasingly becoming commonplace across Britain, as younger and younger children are being indoctrinated towards strict religious adherence as a mechanism for total control of the next generation.

The flash points that are occurring today in places such as Sheffield are as a consequence of the Roma mass immigration as they tend to settle in high immigrant population areas which are predominately populated by muslims such as Pakistani's, Indians, Bangladeshi's and North Africans (Arab and Somali peoples), where such cultures including that of Sikh and hindus seek strict control over interaction between the sexes which is diametrically opposed to the behaviour of incoming Roma communities who have been conditioned through near 1000 years of being persecuted in countries such as Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and elsewhere, constantly facing persecution and prejudice, denied equal rights and in fact slaves for much of their time in europe, no education and thus forced to live an meager existence on the margins of society in squalid make shift camps that are always at the risk of demolition, and having been long forced into a life of crime to survive, skills and practices that have been honed over many generations such as the passing down of the skills for pick pocketing from one generation to the next or worse still many Roma women are expected by their families to engage in prostitution as an acceptable means of putting food on the table therefore women are perceived in a completely opposite manner to that which most muslims perceive women. Therefore the vast majority of Roma communities in-effect operate as crime families which is why crime has and will continue to soar in the areas where the Roma are settling. Again after 1000 years of conditioning, crime is natural to the Roma communities that will take many generations to overcome and only then if they chose to associate themselves with the wider community.

Therefore the people of Sheffield need to be prepared for a Roma crime wave during 2014 featuring a whole host of petty crime and scams such as the driveway cleaning / sealing scam where no sealing actually takes place as will soon become apparent when weeds start to emerge from between the paving bricks, which amounts to an expensive £100-£200 cleaning that would have paid for 2 or 3 pressure washers.

And it is the expected crime / scam wave and diametrically opposed cultural catastrophe that sows the seeds for riots in many British cities such as in Sheffield BETWEEN immigrant communities as that is where the communities can be found to rub up against one another. The manifestation of the cultural catastrophe can be seen taking place now right across Britain as illustrated by the recent mainstream media story of the gang of Roma pedophiles preying on children in school play grounds in Peterborough, which is not an isolated incidence because it is cultural practice of dating back many centuries, which is why there is a high and growing risk of riots in cities such as Sheffield during the Summer of 2014, just as the Sheffield Labour MP David Blunkett warns.

Where Sheffield is concerned the following map highlights the possible high risk riot hot spots as a consequence of out of control immigration and the cultural catastrophe that could reach its ultimate consequences during the Summer of 2014.

Sheffield's landlords have been flagging warnings of what is taking place in areas of Sheffield for the whole of 2013 that looks set to intensify during 2014. Where many landlords have expressed their negative experiences with Roma and some other eastern european tenants who will say anything to gain a privately rented property by offering to pay higher rents and paying for several months up front, but then the experience is that no further payments are made where the Roma / Romanian tenants give the story that they have lost their jobs and then refuse to leave properties as Landlords are forced to go through the lengthy eviction process that usually results in the return of a wrecked property with inability to gain recompense from the former tenants who have moved on to their next target leaving behind wrecked properties littering the deprived areas of the city with debris and open to crime and further anti-social behaviour.

There is a huge cost to Britain not only in terms of breakdown of social order but also in terms of a heavy financial cost as the lack of identification with Britain manifest itself in the widespread perception that benefit and tax fraud against the state is acceptable as it is said to sanctioned as per interpretation of their respective religions, as religion supercedes English law, which manifests itself in many immigrants having assets such as properties and business on rent in their countries of origin for which they earn many £ thousands in rental income, none of which is declared in the UK as they seek to maximise benefits claimed and minimise taxes due in Britain, the consequences of which is contributing towards the £110 billion black hole in the governments annual budget deficit.

Extremist Ideology of Multiculturalism

The problem is as I have often voiced over the years that immigrant communities when arriving in Britain are not being educated on what is expected of them to live in a civilised society as many come from war torn chaotic areas such as Somalia or third world villages or crime infested shanty camps of Romania, therefore have no knowledge of how to behave in a far more civilised environment and thus manifest the same behaviours that were the norm in their countries of origin which as the examples of past migrations of Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshi's implies could continue for the whole of their lives, and so on in future generations.

The route cause of the problem is the extremist ideology of multiculturalism as immigrants tend to be encouraged NOT to integrate as I discussed in-depth some 6 months ago -

03 Jun 2013 - UK Housing Bull Market Opportunities In Britain's Multiculturalism Immigration Crisis

Many of the mainstream politicians actively promote the policy of multiculturalism as the primary way for immigrants to integrate / assimilate themselves with diverse cultures into British society, whereas the facts spanning several decades suggest the complete opposite takes place as the policy of multiculturalism (all cultures being equal) results in immigrants tending to congregate in ghettos that over time displace the indigenous populations, which are further reinforced by subsequent generations most of whom remain within their expanding boundaries of ghetto's which we see in ALL immigrant population groups, which is reinforced by state schools teaching of multiculturalism and by religious schools. The only change that happens over the time is that ghettos can become wealthy i.e. the Jewish immigrants of the 1930's to 1940's now live in rich ghettos such as Gants Hill, Golder's Green, Hampstead and Hendon, similar changes occurred with Hindu and Sikh migrations of the 1950's to 1970's and then for Pakistani's of the 1960's to 1980's and likely for a whole host of more recent influx of migrants from Africa, East Asia (China) and off course Eastern Europe.

The main reason for the lack of integration is religion which is used to justify separation between population groups, we see this with ALL immigrant population groups, Jews, Non CoE Christian's, Hindu's, Muslims, Sikhs and most recently Chinese. In which respect over time the reasons for separation become further exaggerated that is illustrated for instance by the Muslim community where many of the children of immigrants tend to become far more religious than their parents as illustrated by the wearing of the burka (full veil), something that their parents would never have worn and nor do their counterparts in most of the originating countries such as Pakistan, India and North Africa.

Furthermore the trend of separation also increasing risks of contempt for the country that has given them a home due to exaggerated religious doctrines that justify breaking the laws of the land because they are deemed to take second place to religious doctrine, again we see this IN ALL religions, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Confucianism as well as Islam.

As an example most muslims in line with the general population tend to see themselves as law abiding and would never entertain crimes such as the recent acts of terror, but many of the same people are more than happy to actively defraud the state in terms of perceiving themselves to have been given the green light by their respective religion such as in fraudulently claiming benefits whilst working in the black economy.

Such justification for fraud against the state is illustrated by the pick and mix attitude towards religious sermons such as finding justification in the utterances of self professed preachers / leaders as illustrated recently by the Daily Telegraph -

Daily Telegraph - Muslim preacher urges followers to claim 'Jihad Seeker's Allowance' A Muslim preacher is secretly filmed urging followers to take benefits from the state to fund a holy war.

Anjem Choudary was secretly filmed mocking non-Muslims for working in 9-5 jobs their whole lives, and told followers that some revered Islamic figures had only ever worked one or two days a year.

“The rest of the year they were busy with jihad [holy war] and things like that,” he said. “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working’.

“But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-believers].

“So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.”

He went on to tell a 30-strong crowd: “We are going to take England — the Muslims are coming.”

Ridiculing the daily lives of UK workers, Choudary said: “You find people are busy working the whole of their life. They wake up at 7 o’clock. They go to work at 9 o’clock.

“They work for eight, nine hours a day. They come home at 7 o’clock, watch EastEnders, sleep, and they do that for 40 years of their life. That is called slavery.”

Choudary, a father-of-four, claims more than £25,000 a year in benefits, £8,000 more than the take-home pay of some soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, according to the Sun, which covertly filmed the preacher at three meetings.

Such subversion of religious scripture in the pursuit of self interest results in outright criminal fraud against the state which is prevalent amongst ALL of Britain's ghettoed immigrant communities that amounts to undermining of the state from within which over time is contributing towards the social and economic decay of Britain. Religion is used by Jews, Orthodox Christians, Hindu's, Sikhs, and Muslims to justify what amount to crimes against the state that range from claiming benefits that they are not entitled to far worse acts of subversion.

The bottom line is that multiculturalism DOES NOT WORK, it PERMANENTLY fragments society into ever expanding Ghettos where over time the populations have LESS in common with one another, not more! The only answer is to scrap the mainstream policies that support multiculturalism such as the state funding for religious schools of ALL faiths. For the brainwashing for separation of the population starts in faith schools. Next the state must seek to exert secularism by banning the use of ALL religious symbols in public places such as schools, hospitals, and in all government services and seek to extract multiculturalism from state school education in favour of a policy of Britishness.

If Britain does not get a grip on the current situation and put multiculturalism into reverse gear then ultimately the British state will see itself fragment during future economic crisis as populations that have very little in common with on another will choose to go their separate ways, which as Northern Ireland illustrates would result in catastrophic consequences.

Religion breeds separation, where isolated separated people tend to over time see those of other religions that they have little interaction with as inferior to themselves, and it is this that which is at the root of the current mainstream press reporting.

The policy of multiculturalism is as consequences of politicians seeking to create pools of vested interest voters. Multiculturalism are the policies that reinforce cultural differences amongst the population under the premise that all cultures are equal when the truth is the exact opposite as illustrated by the fact that the only reason countries such as China are prospering is because they are busy WESTERNISNG. So British politicians instead of reinforcing the strengths of British culture seek to exaggerate cultural differences between peoples in pursuit of creating and maintaining pools of vested interest voters.

The Solution - Britishisation

EDUCATION IS THE KEY - All migrants, of whatever country of origin need to be educated in all aspects of how one lives life in an civilised Britain, and that many of the cultural practices such as cultures of widespread criminality, treating women as second class citizens, and the more extremes of pedophilia that tends to be written into the scripts of ALL religions as being totally unacceptable in today's Britain. Until immigrants are able to demonstrate such knowledge and behaviour then they should not have any recourse to public funds or services. That is the only solution to Britain's cultural catastrophe as the monetary carrot is what encourages many to migrate to Britain in the first place so immigrants should be faced with the choice of undergoing the process of Britishisation and fully integrate rather than seek out to replicate the environment that they escaped from in the first place, coupled with free money from the British state that they would not be in receipt of in their countries of origin.

Immigration and a lot of immigrants are hardworking and majority highly educated and can genuinely give something to Britain. The immigration problem however which is periodically spoken about isn't immigrants from outside the EU, the problem is from immigrants inside the EU, and more specifically Romanian immigrants. A serious discussion needs to be made because as it stands there are only 80,000 Romanians in the UK and the problem is quote visibly evident. The UK is expected to have a influx of over 500,000 by 2015 which should ring alarm bells across government.

Don't get me wrong if a Romanian is educated and will provide a specific service eg doctor/nurse/teachers/scientists etc all of which require a person being educated then fine but how does allowing a person or family who have no education and who hasn't ever sought this change anything? The Romany population cannot debate by saying opportunities weren't open to them in Romania. They have decided against it. So what makes them coming to the UK any different on the contrary by them entering you are restricting those with genuine skill sets from coming. It's not rocket science.

The left always attack anyone who raises concerns - the problem is those concerns are usually logical and self-evident. As much as some would like it, many immigrants are just not suitable or desirable to our way of life, and the Roma are a prime example.

There are no gains to us, only problems.

Roma's Begging

In my experience in Spain and Ireland, it is the sending of women and children into the street to beg that is the single-most damaging factor to the Roma's reputation. If this degrading practice were stopped, then I think a lot of the ill-will towards them would diminish considerably.

Roma's Begging

What I have encountered in Glasgow:

Women coming into cafés and trying to beg at the tables silently (holding up written cards) to attempt to avoid being reported to the waiting staff; doing the same inside a charity shop, approaching browsing customers to try to sell them jewellery,

Labour betrayal

Bog off Blunkett - YOU, along with Blair, Brown, Straw created this mess. Trying to defuse the anger of the great British people by your typical leftie lecturing and bleating does not work anymore. The hypnotic spell ‘New Labour’ cast over us has been lifted, we are not afraid now to stand up for Britain even if you are, you cowards. Whether we are ‘racist’, ‘bigoted’ or ‘xenophobic’ is irrelevant and an idealistic load of student hype which has no place in the real world.

YOU have enacted laws and policies which put immigrants, scroungers and dead beats before your own people and giving away OUR democracy and country to the EU.

You have betrayed the spirit, lifestyle and values of the British people, now is the time for rebellion to reclaim our country from the likes of you.

The Big Government Lie

This is the biggest lie this government is responsible for. They keep saying they have got immigration down to 10's of thousands, but keep neglecting to tell everyone it doesnt include EU immigration.

All EU citizens are allowed free access to Britain and ALL BENEFITS and from 1st January 2014 include Rumania and Bulgaria.

Estimates vary from 1200 to 1500 a day and I suppose they've all got jobs because the Con's keep telling us it's good for the economy???

Bear in mind Rumania wants rid of the Roma Gypsy problem so we will have to have them.

The UK Owes them NOTHING!

I have said for years that civil unrest of unimaginable proportions is an inevitable consequence of the deliberate destruction of British culture. This destruction has been the policy of successive left leaning Labour, conservative and coalition governments. All mainstream parties have a hidden agenda to unravel a society that brought so much to the world over many centuries. This policy is a direct result of indoctrination by universities masquerading as venerable seats of learning.

One must ask why Roma have been subjected to discrimination for centuries. It is because their lifestyle is in direct conflict with decent societies. The UK owes them NOTHING. This absurd policy of supplying them with sites and facilities at the taxpayer expense and turning a blind eye to the filth they generate must stop. It must be stopped by the political process or the people will once again take matters into their own hands.

It is preferrable a civilised process be pursued with deadlines to remove them if they do not become full contributing members of British society. They have choices. If Britain or any other country is unwelcoming and "oppressive" then they can leave. It is their choice. It is the choice of the British people (not the political elite) to set whatever rules they like as to what is expected from anyone who wishes to reside in the country. The UK must take back its borders.
