You probably haven't read this yet (and in truth are very unlikely to in the mainstream media).
Ethnic English children living in mixed race communities have 'lost their sense of identity' and 'are marginalized' says a new Home Office report.
At its most extreme our own children do not know where they come from.
A review of citizenship lessons in schools by Sir Keith Ajegbo, a Home Office adviser (you couldn't make it up), concludes that white children are suffering 'labelling and discrimination' that is severely compromising their idea of being British.
Multiculturalism has failed a generation of school children because the concept is fundamentally flawed. Forcing disparate communities to live side by side where mutual contempt and disdain is forever just below the surface just doesn’t work. It didn’t work in former Yugoslavia, the former Soviet Union and it isn’t working in Britain’s inner cities.
This study cites the example of a class where a young English (white) pupil in her early teens, after hearing that her classmates originally came from the Congo, Portugal, Trinidad and Poland, said she "came from nowhere". That quote must be a real success for the Marxist inspired educators who set out in the 70s and 80s to deliberately transform society. Years of denouncing Britain’s history as racist and imperialist, years of denigrating national heroes and belittling the achievements of our forebears have reached a zenith of achievement for the educators and media pundits in the words of the teenage girl who came from nowhere.
In truth it is a nadir for our people. While pupils of Trinidadian origin are encouraged to celebrate their Caribbean culture and pupils of Bengali origin are urged to hold on to their traditions children of native British parentage are positively discouraged from celebrating their history, or exploring their identity.
The situation is far worse in England than it is in the so-called Celtic nations. Welsh, Scottish and in particular Irish identities are far less likely to be attacked and reviled as much as the English identity. Liberal educators and broadcasters tend to dwell on the supposed historical English exploitation of the Celtic nations. It is interesting to note that the report uses the term 'white' when it really should specify ethnic English. The use of the term 'white' is partly pejorative and encourages the fracture of society along the lines of broad racial characteristics instead of allowing our people to call themselves what they truly are on grounds of cultural integrity.
Rudyard Kipling is attributed with the quote: “To be born English is to win first prize in the lottery of life”. Now it seems that to be born English is akin to failing to get three numbers on a Saturday night.

Spicing things up in the Middle East

According to an Ameriacn journalist, sources at former Dick Cheney company Halliburton allege that, as recently as January of 2005, Halliburton sold key components for a nuclear reactor to an Iranian oil development company. The journalist says his Halliburton sources have intimate knowledge of the business dealings of both Halliburton and Oriental Oil Kish, one of Iran’s largest private oil companies.
Additionally, throughout 2004 and 2005, Halliburton worked closely with Cyrus Nasseri, the vice chairman of the board of directors of Iran-based Oriental Oil Kish, to develop oil projects in Iran. Nasseri is also a key member of Iran’s nuclear development team. Nasseri was interrogated by Iranian authorities in late July 2005 for allegedly providing Halliburton with Iran’s nuclear secrets. Iranian government officials charged Nasseri with accepting as much as $1 million in bribes from Halliburton for this information.
Oriental Oil Kish dealings with Halliburton first became public knowledge in January 2005 when the company announced that it had subcontracted parts of the South Pars gas-drilling project to Halliburton Products and Services, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Halliburton that is registered to the Cayman Islands. Following the announcement, Halliburton claimed that the South Pars gas field project in Tehran would be its last project in Iran. According to a BBC report, Halliburton, which took thirty to forty million dollars from its Iranian operations in 2003, “was winding down its work due to a poor business environment.”
However, Halliburton has a long history of doing business in Iran, starting as early as 1995, while Vice President Cheney was chief executive of the company. The journalist quotes a February 2001 report published in the Wall Street Journal, “Halliburton Products and Services Ltd., works behind an unmarked door on the ninth floor of a new north Tehran tower block. A brochure declares that the company was registered in 1975 in the Cayman Islands, is based in the Persian Gulf sheikdom of Dubai and is “non-American.” But like the sign over the receptionist’s head, the brochure bears the company’s name and red emblem, and offers services from Halliburton units around the world.” Moreover post sent to the company’s offices in Tehran and the Cayman Islands is forwarded directly to its Dallas headquarters.
In an attempt to curtail Halliburton and other U.S. companies from engaging in business dealings with rogue nations such as Libya, Iran, and Syria, an amendment was approved in the Senate on July 26, 2005. The amendment, sponsored by the Republican Senator Susan Collins, would penalise companies that continue to skirt U.S. law by setting up offshore subsidiaries as a way to legally conduct and avoid U.S. sanctions under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.
A letter, drafted by trade groups representing corporate executives, vehemently objected to the amendment, saying it would lead to further hatred and perhaps incite terrorist attacks on the U.S. and “greatly strain relations with the United States primary trading partners.” The letter warned that, “Foreign governments view U.S. efforts to dictate their foreign and commercial policy as violations of sovereignty often leading them to adopt retaliatory measures more at odds with U.S. goals.”
Collins supports the legislation, stating, “It prevents U.S. corporations from creating a shell company somewhere else in order to do business with rogue, terror-sponsoring nations such as Syria and Iran."
It makes you wonder what else is, or has been going on....
