“Hard on the heels of the financial crisis, we have a political one. People were just coming to terms with BETRAYAL by one trusted group – the bankers, custodians of our hard-earned savings. Now The Daily Telegraph has revealed that POLITICIANS, TOO, HAVE BEEN CYNICALLY MANIPULATING THE SYSTEM to gain maximum financial advantage: an advantage denied to others because of legislation enacted by the very people who were flouting it...Very good.
WHAT IS NEEDED IS MORAL AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL. WE SHOULD BEGIN TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT A CULTURE BUILT ON THE EXPECTATION OF ENDLESS GROWTH – REGARDLESS OF ITS EFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT, THE PERSON AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS – IS NOT THE WAY”.
“Not only have we witnessed THE SOMETIMES DELIBERATE DESTRUCTION OF A MORAL FRAMEWORK FOR OUR SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC LIFE IN BRITAIN, BUT WE HAVE ALSO SEEN THE STEADY EROSION IN THE FORMATION OF CHARACTER.”Excellently said.
“The number of people coming to live and work in Britain must be limited to what the social and economic fabric can sustain.”Honest men have been saying this for the last forty years and the PC Establishment sneered at them for doing so.
“If The Daily Telegraph has revealed anything fundamental about our political masters, it is THE WOEFUL LACK OF THAT CHARACTER BUILDING, WHICH LEADS US TO BEHAVE WITH INTEGRITY AND PUT SERVICE TO THE NATION BEFORE SELF… We have to admit that THERE HAS BEEN A LACK OF EMPHASIS ON THE FORMATION OF CONSCIENCE AND MORAL AWARENESS IN THE NATION. ONCE, RESPONSIBILITY, TRUST, TRUTH-TELLING AND HARD WORK CHARACTERISED WHAT WAS BEST ABOUT US”.It did, Michael, it did.
“ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THE MULTI-CULTURALISM THAT HAS BEEN FOISTED ON US BY A SECULARIST ELITE IS THAT IT SEEKS TO PROMOTE AN EMPTY ‘TOLERANCE’. THIS LEADS TO ISOLATED COMMUNITIES WHICH KEEP GROWING APART AND CAN FALL VICTIM TO MUTUAL HOSTILITY”.So true.
“What should not have been done was to have pretended that THE PEOPLE OF BRITAIN HAD NO VANTAGE POINT, NO MORAL OR SPIRITUAL TRADITION, FROM WHICH THEY COULD ENGAGE WITH NEWER ARRIVALS”.Quite.
“I hope that this newspaper's investigation leads… to a national catharsis, A PURGING OF ALL THAT IS UNWORTHY”.I hope so too.
“If we are looking for moral and spiritual renewal, this will mean that new people, and new kinds of people, will appear in the political life.”Oh yes.
Decent people are needed in politics. Get rid of the self-servers and the politically correct and, for once, get someone in who is on the side of the British people!
“A CHRISTIAN MORAL AND SPIRITUAL FRAMEWORK WOULD LEAD, INSTEAD, TO GENUINE HOSPITALITY TOWARDS THOSE ARRIVING TO SHARE OUR FREEDOMS”.Oh?
We must be nice to those who come here knowing that we don’t want them to come? Bishop, you disappoint me. For a moment there I thought you were on our side. Thing is, I’ve heard the do-gooder spouting this suicidal b***ocks for the last fifty years. And look where the nice, kind, fair-minded and tolerant British people are now. At the bottom of the heap in their own land!
“So when we ask ‘What would Jesus actually do?’, the answer is clear. He would INCLUDE ALL in the embrace of his Father's love, and so change them that they BEGIN TO LIVE FOR OTHERS, TO MEET THE NEEDS OF STRANGERS and to work for a just and compassionate society."Oh dear.
Typical bleeding-heart claptrap. Wag your tail at everything alien and God will let you into heaven.
“THE POLICIES ADVOCATED BY THE BNP ARE CONTRARY TO OUR BELIEF that all human beings, regardless of race or colour, have a common origin and are made in God's image… There can be no compromise about such values… The Christian value of hospitality DEMANDS that those who come LEGALLY ARE WELCOMED. Providing refuge for the genuinely persecuted is also a long-standing British tradition, and must be upheld.”How about providing some refuge for the poor, downtrodden, unrepresented British people, Mike?
No one ever seems to bother about their wants and needs.
Michael Nazir-Ali tells us he would like to see some good folks in parliament. But it would appear that they are going to have to be be the kind of good folks who will carry right on NOT giving the British people what they really want.
What do they really want? NO MORE BLOODY IMMIGRANTS!
The Bishop of Rochester is an immigrant himself.
He was once a Pakistani Muslim.
