Cameron forkaster multikulturalismen til fordel for "muscular liberalism":

    The Telegraph, February 4, 2011: British Muslims must subscribe to mainstream values of freedom and equality, David Cameron will say as he declares that the doctrine of multiculturalism has “failed” and will be abandoned. Entering the debate on national identity and religious tolerance, the Prime Minister will declare an end to “passive tolerance” of divided communities, and say that members of all faiths must integrate into wider society and accept core values. To be British is to believe in freedom of speech and religion, democracy and equal rights regardless of race, sex or sexuality, he will say. Proclaiming a doctrine of “muscular liberalism”, he will say that everyone, from ministers to ordinary voters, should actively confront those who hold extremist views. He will also warn that groups that fail to promote British values will no longer receive public money or be able to engage with the state. His speech, to an international security conference in Munich, comes after The Daily Telegraph disclosed the extent to which the British intelligence community fears the “unique threat” of terrorist attacks by radicalised British Muslims - Muslims must embrace our British values, David Cameron says

Reuters, February 7, 2011: Britain's former Labour government did "all it could" to help Libya seek the Lockerbie bomber's release, according to a report by the top British civil servant published on Monday that could arouse anger in Washington. Abdel Basset al-Megrahi was jailed for life for blowing up Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland in 1988. Scottish authorities freed him in August 2009 on compassionate grounds after concluding he had just months to live because of cancer. Megrahi was given a triumphant homecoming in Libya and is still alive nearly two years later, causing anger in the United States because 189 of the 270 victims were American. Leading U.S. politicians have questioned whether a desire to secure energy deals with Libya played a part in the release.

Daily Mail, March 1, 2011: Tony Blair's ‘dodgy’ deals with Colonel Gaddafi were denounced by David Cameron last night as extraordinary details of Labour’s defence co-operation with Tripoli were laid bare. A previously unpublished document shows that Mr Blair’s Government agreed to supply military hardware and expertise to the despotic regime. And it proves that there were plans for Britain to train Libyan military officers at ‘its prestigious military colleges and institutions’ such as the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. With the possibility that British troops may go into action against the Libyan military, the document shows the extent to which they would be fighting forces trained by the UK. The SAS did train Libyan special forces and Britain approved export licences for military kit, including rifles, ammunition and riot control equipment. At least one Libyan officer has trained at Sandhurst since 2007 - Blair's 'dodgy deal' to arm Gaddafi: Leaked paper shows how ex-PM agreed to supply military kit

The Telegraph, April 23, 2011: Figures published last week reveal that the moment when Britain’s lights start going out may be much closer than previously predicted. Thanks in part to the hammering they took in the abnormal cold of last winter, six large coal-fired power stations which supply a fifth of Britain’s average electricity needs have now used up more than half of the 20,000 running hours they are each allowed under the EU’s Large Combustion Plants directive. When they reach that limit they will have to shut down. Furthermore, in two years’ time, the Government’s new “carbon tax” will make them £600 million a year more expensive to run. Their mainly German owners will therefore want to use up as many of those hours as possible before a charge of £16 for every ton of CO2 they emit comes into force in 2013 - New figures show the lights may go out sooner than we thought

London Evening Standard, April 27, 2011: A former Labour minister admitted today that political correctness had led Britain to offer shelter to violent extremists. Kim Howells, a former Foreign Office minister, said Tony Blair's government and other administrations had been afraid to criticise the conduct of radical preachers and others because they feared being accused of racism - Being too PC led us to shelter terrorists, says ex-minister

BBC News, June 29, 2011: Justice Secretary Ken Clarke has said a householder who knifes a burglar will not have committed a criminal offence under plans to clarify the law on self-defence in England. He told the BBC people were entitled to use "whatever force necessary" to protect themselves and their homes. David Cameron recently said the issue should be put "beyond doubt" - Right to self-defence in homes to be 'much clearer'

Forbes, August 1, 2011: Spotted an anarchist? Call the cops. That appears to be the instruction from a section of Britain's anti-terrorist police, which has asked shopkeepers and members of the public to report information about anarchists. The advice appears in a newsletter produced last week by the "counter terrorist focus desk" in the central London district of Westminster. The newsletter defines anarchism, accurately, as "a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy." It adds: "Any information relating to anarchists should be reported to your local police" - British police ask public to report anarchists

Mediaite, August 9, 2011: As violence and riots sweep through sections London, the rest of the western world can only watch stunned. Earlier, we showed you some of the terrifying pictures taken by British photojournalists, but there’s also tons of video, recorded by Londoners on their cell phones and Flip cameras from rooftops and windows. A journalist however, Sky News’ Mark Stone, was brave (foolish?) enough to go right down on the street and record a pretty stunning video as he forces his camera right in the face of a group of looters - Sky News’ Mark Stone Questions Rioters In London: ‘Are You Proud Of What You Are Doing?’

Mail Online, August 10, 2011: Police were ordered to 'stand and observe' rioters as they laid waste to London's streets instead of confronting them, it was claimed today. Scotland Yard insiders have revealed teams were frustrated at their inability to wade in and arrest troublemakers while they looted and burnt out shops. They had apparently been told to try and contain any violence but not to haul away offenders who would instead be identified through video footage later, according to The Times. It was only on Monday night, when the riots escalated still further, that tactics changed and armoured vehicles called Jankels were used to disperse the crowds. On Tuesday night, some 16,000 officers also flooded London's streets - almost triple the previous night's deployment - and they were finally given the green light to confront the gangs - London riots: Police were soft on looters because they were 'ordered to stand and observe'

Looters Skip the Middleman

10 August 2011 Michael Hurd

To those who teach and rule us, in academia and government, these riots are justified.

We're told that the riots throughout the U.K. are the fault of people who cut social service programs. The implication is clear. To those who teach and rule us, in academia and government, these riots are justified.

Here's a question nobody has yet asked: What is to protect the looters from the same treatment once they seize the property to which they're supposedly entitled? We're expected to believe that they're entitled to this property as compensation for poverty, and for cutbacks in government programs. Does this mean that another mass group of poor people, who feels that they deserve that property even more, are not entitled to do the same? One good looting deserves another, doesn't it?

And if not, then what's the standard by which we're to judge some people entitled, and not others?

Når barn blir opplært til at de har et krav på pengene til folk som har mer penger enn dem selv, så er vel dette konsekvensene. De plyndrer dyre butikker og hus fordi eierne har mer penger enn dem selv, og dette er i følge deres logikk urettferdig og galt. Det eneste disse barna ikke har fått med seg er at de i stedet kan få staten til å utføre stjelingen på vegne av dem, og dermed få tilgang til andres private eiendom på lovlig vis.

Cameron vurderer tiltak mot.....

Innlegg Panther 11 Aug 2011, 16:04

Det er opprør i gatene i England, så Cameron vil slå til mot..... Facebook og Twitter.

http://www.itavisen.no/875508/vil-stoppe-%ABfacebook-poblene%BB

Vil stoppe «Facebook-pøblene»

Cameron vurderer tiltak mot sosiale nettverk.


- Må stoppes
- Den frie flyten av informasjon kan bli brukt både til godt og ondt. Og når folk bruker de sosiale mediene for å utøve vold, må vi stoppe dem, sa Cameron til det britiske parlamentet i dag.

Han fortalte at regjeringen nå jobber tett både med etteretningstjenestene og de sosiale mediene selv for å se på om det er mulig å hindre opprørerne å kommunisere og planlegge voldshandlingene.

Han ville ikke si hvilke konkrete sosiale medier det er snakk om, men det er et faktum at opprørerne så langt har vært svært aktive på Facebook og Twitter.


Hvorfor skal han stoppe dem ifra å kommunisere, han bør heller la dem røpe planene sine og så arrestere dem.
Planlegger de voldelige handlinger, så er dette kriminelt.

Politikerne gjør mye for å stoppe pøblene, men de gjør feil ting. De viker tilbake fra de tingene som virkelig vil hjelpe. Å bruke vannkanoner eller å stenge Facebook er bare slag i luften, det som trengs er meget strenge fengselsstraffer for disse pøblene,

Får ikke inntrykk av at de går inn for å arrestere dem engang. Fremfor å beskytte og holde gater så burde de sperre alle rømningsveiene pøblene har og stille de for retten.
