Right Racist Women

First there was the racist tram woman in Croydon. Then there was the racist tube woman in London. Both of whom ended up prison for saying some offensive words to some randoms in their carriage.

As an aside, on the same day that Racist Tube Woman was sentenced to 22 weeks in nick, another woman was given a 12 month suspended sentence after her kid died due to her criminal neglect. That should give you some idea of the priorities that have been imposed upon English justice by years of thick, self-serving, socialist cretins holding the levers of power.

But anyway… these ‘racist women’. They do have a point.

Not about race or religion, and I’ll leave the question of culture (vis the cancer that is multiculturalism) until another day.

These women have a point in respect of language. I grew up in Manchester with kids of many different ethnic and religious backgrounds, but one thing bound us all together: language. We all spoke, read, wrote and understood the same language. We understood each other and were able to interact and transact. We were all as English as one another.

"I used to live in England and now I live in the United Nations." – Tube Woman

But things have changed. Have you walked down any old high street recently? It’s a Tower of Babel. In all too many towns, you are no more likely to hear English than you are to hear Polish, Farsi or – God help us – Australian. You go into a shop/pub and you are served by a foreigner. Not because some foreigner is ‘taking our jobs’. Far from it. I have no sympathy for the feckless British who make such complaints.

The problem is this: I don’t know about anyone else, but I really have trouble understanding a lot of these people. It makes transacting business difficult and stressful. It drains some of the joy out of my every single day.

Communication is a fundamental human need. It is a great deal of what binds us together, fostering mutual trust and understanding. No two people who speak different languages can be an ‘us’. 

So, I do have something in common with these two women who were jailed for voicing their frustration, albeit poorly. I feel like I’ve lost my country. Not to foreign people, but to foreign languages.

It’s right, therefore, that those who come to this country – MY country – for any length of time, and make inadequate efforts to speak the lingo should attract opprobrium, and short shrift from immigration authorities too.

Or, to put it into Tram Woman terminology, “speak English or fuck off”.

  1. Excellent post!

    But… “So, I do have something in common with these two women who were jailed for voicing their frustration, albeit poorly. I feel like I’ve lost my country. Not to foreign people, but to foreign languages.

    Without the first, you won’t get the second, will you? Unless you include the Welsh.

  2. XX Not because some foreigner is ‘taking our jobs’. Far from it. I have no sympathy for the feckless British who make such complaints. XX

    Aye, well there is a difference. Brits and other North Europeans living in their own country, because the problem, and the argument is Europe wide. Not just Britain), are not hot bunking fifteen to a two bedroom flat, as it was in the three we raided last month. They have things like mortgage, rent, electric, gas, T.V licence, etc to pay, instead of just pissing off to the next squat when the bill comes.

    Then they are exepcted to undercut, for example, the Poles if they want to work??? Poles, who incidentally around here, in Berlin, have cut the average pay for a gardener (My Brother in law is in the trade), by so much, he has gone from paying his way, and having a bit of “pocket money” on the side (We are talking three or four pints after work on Friday here, Not a Bloody Mercedes 500 in the garage), to having to claim dole top up just to pay the rent, even though he has had the same job for twenty or so years.

    Don’t come thios shit that “They don’t want to work so we need foriegn scum to do it for us”. It doesn’t bloody WORK, laddie.

    The supreme irony is that this willingness – or desire – to accommodate a plethora of foreign languages has aided and abetted the exploitation of workers.

    Remember that documentary on the sweat-shops springing up on Britain’s streets? The undercover reporters sent in to expose unsafe practices and appalling conditions were chosen because they spoke the languages in which all the factory business as carried out.

    With no reason to learn English – after all, the authorities bend over backwards to provide translation services and leaflets in every language under the sun – workers have no way to access the news media and outside agencies that would tell them that their wages and working conditions breach local rules.

    Without a working knowledge of English, they are effectively disenfranchised; easy prey for unscrupulous employers who offer to act as intermediaries and have no qualms about exploiting their compatriots.

    But it’s all so wonderfully multicultural!

    In recent years I have had to change both my dentist and my vet because the practices were employing people I could not understand.
