Capital Idea! Can They Sign A Pledge Against Rape, Murder And Benefit Fraud Too..?

Campaigners called for immigrants to be required to sign a declaration promising not to subject their daughters to genital mutilation before being allowed into Britain.


Professor Hazel Barrett of Coventry University warned against relying solely on a declaration, because it could become a “well intentioned piece of paper”.

She warned it might encourage families to have girls cut before coming to the EU. It could also confuse matters for families who do not sign the pledge and so may feel they can go ahead and perform FGM on their daughters.


She instead called for immigrants to attend an anti-FGM workshop to explain the law, and for them to be given a “cultural mentor” who can explain the consequences.

*takes applause back*

All immigrants, Prof? Are you going to insist on having a room full of very confused Mexicans, Poles, Chinese and Canadians watching a gory video?

Why not just take the bull by the horns?

The group was unanimously against physically examining young girls to ensure they have not undergone FGM. This is common in France, but London campaigners said the experience could be traumatic for children and parents would not agree to it.

Then it’s ‘Fine. Heathrow’s that way, m’kay? Don’t let the door to the UK’s benefits system hit you in the arse on the way out’.

    In the spirit of knowledge is power, the more who know it the better and from a link in the DT H/T costaandroid:

    This article, which The Salisbury Review published in 1984, cost Ray Honeyford his job as a head teacher. For speaking the truth, he was subjected to a long, bitter campaign, including death threats and other forms of persecution, orchestrated by an assortment of vehement idealogues. Twenty-two years on, the Review says that it “salutes Mr Honeyford’s courage and intellectual integrity, which has been so clearly vindicated by recent events”. Here, with the magazine’s permission, we exclusively republish Mr Honeyford’s observations:[…]

    As he says, “Read this. It’s the best reasoned and well written article I’ve ever read on the topic and it was written 30 years ago.”

    They, TPTB hounded him, he was painted as some sort of AntiChrist child snatcher and baby eater – even the cuties on the local news ITV+Beeb were holding their painted noses up at him……….. well what goes around comes back to bite you in the arse.

    How right Honeyford was and how wrong were they but – it still goes on and Britain’s decay accelerates towards the doom point: be prepared for the passing of a nation circa 2025.

      I’m starting to think we really are doomed.

    As part of a general medical for the whole family l entering the UK [but in practice for this demographic where something is suspected], can’t see why the checks can’t be done.
