Tell the BBC what you think of Sandwell Council banning St George

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The West Midlands edition of the Politics Show is covering Sandwell Council’s banning of their annual St Georges Day Parade.

Stone Cross St George Association, which runs the event, would like people to write in with their comments.  The programme starts at 12:30 today.

I’ve just sent the following:

Why isn’t Sandwell Council banning all other cultural events? Surely events like Holocaust Memorial Day and Eid encourage “tribalism” and there’s certainly evidence that many muslim communities all over the country have been infiltrated by extremists. If this was an event for any group of people other than the English the council would never have considered banning the event and if they had people would be taking to the streets demanding they resign. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander – Sandwell councillors should be ashamed of themselves for allowing British nationalists to spoil celebrations of England’s patron saint.

    This from a letter sent to the local rags by my good friend Fred – a proud black countryman and English patriot.

    Compare and contrast.

    Dear Editor,
    Declaration of interest, I am an Englishman and not a member of the BNP.

    It is interesting to note the difference between the Stone Cross St Georges Day parade and Notting Hill Carnival. Both are run under Labour administrations.

    Notting Hill Carnival:
    An Ethnic Minority event.
    3 murders, over 400 arrests. 190 offences involving violence, robbery and theft.
    Over 400 injuries at one event and 94 people hospitalised. 2 shootings at one event.
    Handguns, CS gas canisters and a stun gun confiscated before one event.

    Public funding given.
    Police costs £3,000,000!
    £8.7 million pledged by London Development Agency and the Arts Council to provide a Notting Hill carnival Enterprise Centre!

    Sandwell St Georges Day Parade.
    An English Event.
    Not one reported instance of any disruptive incident. One recognisable member of a rival party photographed walking quietly in the parade.

    Public funding withdrawn. £10,000

    Perhaps Sandwell Council would like to justify their actions.

    Do you really think that Holocaust Memorial Day is simply nothing more than a a “cultural event”? They are utterly wrong to ban the St Georges Day parade but let’s keep some perspective and compare like with like when challenging the authorities.
