Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser

Barbara Roche immigration minister great britain

Barbara Roche was the former Labour MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, and was immigration minister from 1999 to 2001.
Labour threw open Britain's borders to mass immigration to help socially engineer a "truly multicultural" country, a former Government adviser has revealed.

The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and "rub the Right's nose in diversity", according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.

He said Labour's relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to "open up the UK to mass migration" but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its "core working class vote".

As a result, the public argument for immigration concentrated instead on the economic benefits and need for more migrants.

Critics said the revelations showed a "conspiracy" within Government to impose mass immigration for "cynical" political reasons.

Comment: And how did this cynical policy work out?

Xi will attend three summits during his three day visit; one with the Saudi leadership, one with GCC leaders, and one with Arab leaders
China's President Xi Jinping arrived in Saudi Arabia on 7 December for a three-day-visit to bolster bilateral cooperation by signing agreements valued at $29.26 billion.

The kingdom's monarch King Salman invited the Chinese president to "bolster historic ties and strategic partnership between the two countries." Xi received a warm welcome as the Saudi government coordinated with its air force to have pilots paint Riyadh's skies with the colors of the Chinese flag upon his arrival.

China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that Xi will be attending three integral summits; one with Saudi delegates, one with officials of Arab States, and the third involving representatives of GCC states.

Katie Hobbs
Internal email documents at Twitter reveal Arizona Governor-elect and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs allegedly colluded with former Twitter officials last year by flagging accounts related to so-called election misinformation.

The bombshell leak comes amid Elon Musk releasing internal company communications through journalist Matt Taibbi late last week, showing the company had previously censored conservatives at the behest of the Democrat Party.

According to an email on January 7, 2021, the communications director for Hobbs' Secretary of State office emailed the Center for Internet Security (CIS), a 501 nonprofit cybersecurity organization, saying they are "flagging" an unidentified Twitter profile for review under the subject line titled "Election Related Misinformation."

Theories about Rachel Chandler's alleged connection to Jeffrey Epstein go viral amid Balenciaga's ad campaign controversy
Rachel Chandler, a professional photographer and modeling agent, was reportedly involved in the casting process for Balenciaga. Chandler is being scrutinized online for her alleged links to Jeffrey Epstein.

The speculation comes amid the scandal surrounding Balenciaga's recent controversial ad. The luxury fashion house landed in hot water for its gift collection campaign that featured children posing with plush bear purses wearing outfits based on themes of b*ndage.

The company also faced backlash over its Spring 2023 campaign ad that consisted of a photo featuring printouts of a 2008 Supreme Court ruling on child p*rnography.

Amid the ongoing controversy, British influencer Oli London has claimed that the brand deliberately designed the campaign and is "deeply involved in child abuse and exploitation." London has been quite vocal in condemning Balenciaga's campaign.

EU just woke up and realised it was America's bitch - Reset needed claims Macron

Remarkably, the EU is beginning to wake up and realise not only that it is more servile to the U.S. than ever before, but in fact the relationship has reached farcical levels of master and slave since the Ukraine war started. And yet, despite the EU's chief diplomat recently refusing to be drawn into a conflict scenario with China and MEPs pathetically voting to deem Russia a terrorist state, it was not the EU which came to the conclusion. It was the French president Emmanuel Macron.

Nine whole months since the war started in February of this year, Macron is beginning to see that he has been outplayed by the incumbent buffoon in the White House. Yes, 'Where Am I going Biden' is actually not as dumb as he looks or acts. The true winner of the Ukraine war is America by far which has made Europe dependent on its LPG, while it is Europeans who are reduced to living like refugees in their own countries once the cost is passed on.

French President Emmanuel Macron recently travelled to Washington, D.C. this past week for the first state visit of the Biden Administration, but not before telling Australia's 60 Minutes correspondent Bill Whitaker that relations between the historic allies were in need of a reset.

"How have relations been out of sync?" Whitaker asked.

"I think this administration and President Biden personally is very much attached to Europe," Macron said. "But when you look at the situation today, there is indeed a de-synchronization. Why? Energy. Europe is a gas and oil buyer. The U.S. is a producer. And when you look at the situation, our industries and our households are not buying at the same price. So there is a big gap impacting purchasing power and competitiveness of our societies."

Biden has handed America over to the biodefense cartel

On the heels of Biden's September 12th Executive Order titled The National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative, I wrote two days later that it "is a complete capitulation of our government to Big Pharma, the biotechnology industry and the entire transhuman cabal that wants to create Humanity 2.0 by changing our genetic structure."

The Initiative literally opens the floodgates of taxpayer resources and turns over government control to the biotech and Big Pharma industry. Some highlights include:
  • "We need to develop genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers; unlock the power of biological data, including through computing tools and artificial intelligence; and advance the science of scale-up production while reducing the obstacles for commercialization so that innovative technologies and products can reach markets faster."
  • "bolster and coordinate Federal investment in key research and development (R&D) areas of biotechnology and biomanufacturing in order to further societal goals"
  • "Building a Vibrant Domestic Biomanufacturing Ecosystem."
  • "expand training and education opportunities for all Americans in biotechnology and biomanufacturing."
  • "Federal investments in biological sciences, biotechnology, and biomanufacturing to enhance biosafety and biosecurity best practices throughout the bioeconomy R&D enterprise."

GOP urges Congress to investigate whistleblower claims of child trafficking under Biden

joe biden Josh Hawley
In response to a video released in late November by Project Veritas, three US Senators penned a letter to Sen. Gary Peters, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs demanding that the committee hold a hearing into whistleblower allegations of child trafficking.

"We write in response to recently reported claims by federal employee whistleblower that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is knowingly transferring unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of criminals, including sex traffickers," the letter from Senators Ron Johnson, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley began.

Dem Rep. Ro Khanna: Twitter's duty to protect free speech

ro khanna
Censorship of the Hunter Biden story might have helped my party, but it was bad for our democracy.

Defending free speech is easy when it's speech you agree with. Defending speech you dislike, or speech that doesn't advance your interests, is more challenging. But it is in exactly those uncomfortable situations that American democratic principles call on us to protect the free exchange of ideas and freedom of the press.

Free speech is a foundational value of our democracy. In New York Times Co. v. Sullivan (1964), which overturned a libel judgment that racist local officials had won in an Alabama court, Justice William Brennan Jr. wrote that "debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open." Brennan noted that this speech "may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials." The kind of political debates once held via letters to local papers, as well as in political ads such as the one at issue in Sullivan, have moved online, often in the form of tweets. Attacks on public officials and candidates for office have continued.

Comment: Ro Khanna is obviously a rare breed: a democrat who believes in the principles of free speech and understands the complexity of the issue. Unfortunately, one can only assume his days are numbered.

Kiev's troops targeted residential areas of Donetsk with NATO-caliber artillery, the territorial defense HQ has said.

Ukrainian forces subjected the Russian city of Donetsk to massive artillery shelling and rocket attacks on Monday, with at least four civilians killed and several more wounded, according to local authorities.

The attacks targeted residential areas of the city, with at least three buildings damaged, according to the Joint Center on Control and Coordination (JCCC) mission, which monitors what it alleges are Ukrainian "war crimes." The shelling primarily hit the Kiev district in the north of the city, the territorial defense headquarters of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) reported.

The Ukrainian forces used Grad BM-21 multiple rocket launchers, as well as artillery pieces of Soviet 152mm and NATO 155mm calibers during the attack. Apart from four fatalities, four other civilians were injured, the territorial defense has said.

Rex Murphy: Alberta hasn't been 'ignored' Danielle Smith, quite the opposite

Premier Danielle Smith

Premier Danielle Smith speaks at the Calgary Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Nov. 18. Jim Wells/Postmedia
As I joyously recounted in my previous aria, Danielle Smith is on a wave. She is being severely disparaged and outright insulted by the highest foreheads, some of which have Alpine reach, that Toronto pundits have to offer. Which is pure jet-fuel for her cause.

And it continues. Just this past Saturday, the mighty Globe and Mail's Sanhedrin, their august editorial board, over a photograph of Premier Smith, ran the headline "Some of Canada's premiers appear to be losing their minds." "Losing their minds?" Some might call that "opinion journalism." I call it cheap slush.
