There, we've said it. And if anyone is in any doubt, we're not frightened to say it, in fact we're proud to shout the word from the rooftops, so we'll say it again even louder

!!!!!! CHRISTMAS !!!!!!

The most ridiculous risk averse piece of diversity nonsense that has hit the headlines this year, has to be the British Transport Police campaign that dropped the word ‘Christmas’ from a national publicity poster to avoid upsetting people who do not ‘buy into’ the festival.

What a joke the terms "Great Britain" and "United Kingdom" have become in the eyes of the mocking world, when they see stories like this in our national press.

The word "Christmas" was originally proposed as part of a slogan on the poster, designed to alert people to the extra number of transport police on duty over the festive period.

The slogan – devised by an advertising company commissioned by the Transport Police – reads ‘Christmas presence’, a pun on the word ‘presents’.

But the police’s marketing department decided the word Christmas could anger non-believers or people from other faiths who disliked its Christian connotations. Rather than scrapping the poster, the department swapped ‘Christmas’ for ‘Holiday’, so the slogan now reads ‘Holiday presence’, losing the wit of its original wording.

A Transport Police spokesman said the decision to remove the word ‘Christmas’ had been made by the Transport Police’s marketing manager, Alison Lock, who is based at its headquarters in Camden, North London.

‘It is just to make the message non-denominational so that it applies to everyone and so that people who don’t buy into Christmas don’t feel excluded,’ the spokesman said. ‘I can see there can be a debate around it but it is a matter of opinion and I’m not going to comment.’ Ms Lock could not be contacted for comment because she is in Canada.

This poster is the latest instance of public bodies removing references to Christmas for fear of upsetting minorities. In 1997, Birmingham Council was derided by Christians for using
‘Winterval’ as the name of its official Christmas festivities, which involved inter-faith events. There were protests last month when the Tayside city of Dundee promoted its Christmas celebrations as the Winter Night Light festival.

This kind of crass stupidity is irritating and offensive to the Christian majority in Britain and, highly insulting to the followers of other beliefs, or even those with no belief, who are in the main quite accepting and tolerant of others celebrating their particular Religious Festivals.

All this nonsense does is pander to those on the lunatic fringes of various groups by giving such tiny minorities far more consideration than their numbers warrant. This gives the impression that the beliefs and activities of the minorities are more important than those of the majority. The result is that it creates ill feeling and suspicion where none need exist.

Why did they commission an advertising agency if they didn't intend to use it? What is the purpose of a marketing manager who is unaccountable and a spokesman who refuses to give out information?

Use the millions to pay the police the overtime they need to do the job!

There is a broader issue here. Incidents like this divide the groups within our multi cultural society. Irresponsible actions and campaigns create a feeling of seperatism that need not exist between the cultures, uneccesarily widening the divide. Deleting Christmas from our vocabulary suggests that only the alternatives that cause less offence to minority groups are acceptable. TOSH!

The people who propagate this "offence culture" are stupid faceless risk averse managers from within the same organisations. The only way we are ever going to stop this insanity is to remove the anonimity that they are allowed to hide behind. "A police spokesman" blah blah blah! Give us a name. If individuals will not step forward to take responsibility then they shouldn't have the job of making public statements. 

Who exactly are these people who find Christmas and Christianity so offensive? Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, in fact people of many faiths are in favour of the celebration of christmas by christians, just as they are in favour of the celebration of Eid, Hanukah, Diwali, by people of those faiths. Hiding behing the general phrase "other faiths" is a cop-out. We should be told exactly who it is that objects so strongly to christianity and christmas so we may decide if the objection has any merit.


The police are part of the establishment. Whether we accept it or not, statements and messages from the establishment influence the thoughts, beliefs and attitudes of the masses.  It is imperative that such statements, campaigns and press exposure should contain LESS politically correct comment.

Stick to what you do best, locking up the baddies and keeping our communities safe. Stop protecting your backsides with risk averse diversity nonsense. We don't need you to waste millions telling us what we already know, that you'll be there for us - but we'll be mighty angry to hear you've spent the essential overtime budget that helps keep us safe, on posters and promises.  And on that note . . . . .

Thanks for that Dickiebo.

The Christmas issue is, I fear, the tip of an iceberg of a problem that needs addressing with urgency. I will post this seperately as an article in its own right, but here's some thoughts for you. (I like your site btw, you say it straight, as it is - we retired coppers should get together and form our own party!).

Anyway, get yourself a cup of tea and see what you think of this for a rant!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

In recent years the British people have been increasingly denied their democratic rights. On issue after issue, the views of the majority of British people have been ignored and overridden by politically correct elite with their own agenda. All this in a country whose people invented modern Parliamentary democracy.

On immigration, on capital punishment, on the surrender of British sovereignty to the EU and in numerous other areas, democracy has been eroded as politicians fail to offer the British people real choice on such vital issues.

We are owed that choice and we should restore and defend the basic democratic rights we have all been denied. More REAL democracy, not less, at national, regional and local levels is what is required.

There should be a Bill of Rights that guarantees basic fundamental freedoms to the British people. Ordinary British people should have real democratic power over their own lives and Government, local and national, so that it is truly accountable to the people who elect it.

Some laws that exist on the statute books prevent people from making a free choice. They should be abolished, along with the “Human Rights Act” which has been imposed on this country through the European Union, and which is nothing but an excuse to prevent British laws stopping the scroungers of the world bleeding our nation dry.

Traditional free speech should be a “given” supported by citizen-initiated referenda whose outcomes are binding on Parliament. That is true democracy, NOT this farce of Government we have witnessed and endured these past generations.

Whilst we are “all for” a multi cultural integrated society, the immigration problem is now way past the joke.

Around 84% of all current UK citizenship applications are from the third world, according to figures from parliament.

We follow the Hansard questions on the parliament site, and as of March 7, there were 27,525 new citizenship applications being processed by the UK Borders Agency.

Broken down by country of origin:

• 23,062 are from Third World nations
• 1,715 were born in the UK, but are applying for UK citizenship, and their parents’ country of origin is not stated.
• Only 269 of these applications are from people born inside the European Union
• 1904 are from traditionally majority European countries which are outside the EU.
• 361 applications are from South Africa, of which the majority is likely to be of European or British origin.

The Third World nations heading the citizenship application list are:-

• Pakistan (5,060)
• Bangladesh (2,595)
• Somalia (2,245)
• Iraq (1,860)
• Afghanistan (1,585)
• India (1,005)
• Turkey (675)
• Sri Lanka (540)
• Islamic Republic of Iran (530)
• Philippines (485)
• Zimbabwe (460)
• Nigeria (425)
• Algeria (385)
• Congo Democratic Republic (315)
• China (305)
• Jamaica (275)
• Angola (205)
• Ghana (200)
• Morocco (195)
• Kenya (195)
• Egypt (190)
• Sierra Leone (180)
• Yemen (175)
• Rwanda (145)
• Ethiopia (140)
• Albania (125)
• Hong Kong (125)
• Sudan (120)
• Arab Republic of Libya (120)
• The Syrian Arab Republic (115)
• Nepal (105)
• Saudi Arabia (100)
• Uganda (100)
• Eritrea (100)

Part 2 of 3

Topping the list of EU nations applying for UK citizenship is:-

• Romania (35)
• France (35)
• Poland (30)
• Portugal (20)
• Italy (20)
• Cyprus (15).

The list of non-EU but mostly European-origin nations applying is :-

• Yugoslavia (220)
• Kosovo (210)
• United States of America (155)
• Kosovo (140)
• Republic of Serbia (120)
• Russian Federation (460)
• Australia (100)

The figures can be checked on Hansard at:

Britain is rapidly being colonised by the Third World. 11% of all people living in Britain today is not of British origin and was not born here. When this figure is added to the totals of second and third generation immigrants already here, the Third World origin sector of the population rises to well over 20%.

Mass immigration at this level means that Britain will become a Third World nation well within two generations.

Non-indigenous births will soon account for more than half of all the babies born in Britain, according to statistics provided by the NHS. This is a topic that is kept well under the radar out of fear of a public backlash. There doesn’t seem to be a UK standard definition of “indigenous” but many take it to mean babies whose grandparents were born in the UK.

The government statistics tell us that about 20% of babies are born to mothers who themselves were born in the UK. The figures do not tell us the overall figures for those born to mothers whose own parents were not born in the UK.

If you walk around most maternity units in London and our patch in the West Midlands, you will find that almost ninety percent of the births are non-indigenous. Like the police and the gagging of sensitive information that the public really should know, doctors face reprimand and censure from the General Medical Council and the Academic Royal Colleges for publicly revealing such information, but this is too important NOT to open to public debate.

At this rate, the indigenous peoples of the UK will be a minority by the next generation. This is sooner than most people realise and it will have enormous consequences for the country.

I fear the consequences of this for my teenage children, where traditional values of our generation and those of our parents and grandparents face extinction as a result of the deliberate policy of ethnic cleansing that this Government has orchestrated. We wrote about this disgraceful and deliberate cultural sabotage in our article last month:-

Given current demographic trends, we, the indigenous British people, will become an ethnic minority in our own country well within sixty years – and most likely sooner.

All the signs are there:

• 84% of all current UK citizenship applications are from the Third World
• 14%of all primary school children do not have English as a mother tongue
• 316 primary schools in England have a majority of children whose first language is not English
• Non-indigenous births will soon account for more than half of all the babies born in Britain
• Over the next twenty five years, immigration will account for 40% of all new households in this country
• 3.7 million legal migrants have entered this country since 1997 – and 2.5 million are from outside the European Union
• At least 20% of the currently resident population was either born overseas or are descendants of foreign-born parents.

The majority of these foreign-born residents are of Third World extraction. The Office for National Statistics state that at least 11% of all people living in Britain today were born overseas. This figure does not include their second or third generation children.

All these facts contribute to the extinguishing of the British identity through immigration.

Part 3 of 4 (sorry it wouldn't fit on 3!!)

Something must be done if the British people are to retain their homeland and identity. We would support an immediate halt to all further immigration, the immediate deportation of criminal and illegal immigrants, and a system where those immigrants who are legally here would be afforded the opportunity to return to their land of ethnic origin.

Positive discrimination schemes have made indigenous Britons second-class citizens in our own country. The flood of ‘asylum seekers’ must be stemmed, the majority of whom are either bogus or can find refuge much nearer their home countries.

• Deport the two million plus who are here illegally
• Deport all those who commit crimes and whose original nationality was not British Review all grants of residence or citizenship to ensure they are still acceptable
• Offer grants to those of foreign descent, resident here who wish to leave permanently Stop all new immigration except for exceptional cases
• Reject all asylum seekers who passed safe countries on their way to Britain.

Immigration is way out of control. Britain’s population is now over 60 million and rising. Not only is Britain increasingly overcrowded, but the fact is, that a country is the product of its people, and if you change the people you inevitably change the nature of the country.

We want Britain returned to the way it has traditionally been. We accept that Britain always will have ethnic minorities and have no problem with this as long as this does not change nor seek to change the fundamental culture and identity of the indigenous majority.

The current unrestricted, uncontrolled situation has contributed to higher crime rates, demand for more housing, extra strain on the environment, traffic congestion, longer hospital waiting lists, lower educational standards, higher income tax, lower wages, high unemployment, a loss of British identity, a breakdown in community spirit, more restrictive policing, higher council taxes, a shortage of council homes, higher levels of stress and unhappiness and a fragmented community.

Take a look at the foreign nationals in our prisons:

Population in prison by nationality and sex - 30th June 2009

All nationalities 83,454
British nationals 71,231 85%
Foreign nationals 11,350 14%
Not recorded 874 1%

The Foreign National Prison Population is represented by :

Africa 2,897 3%
Asia 2,456 3%
America 302 0.36%
N America 137 0.16%
Europe 3,617 4%
Middle East 595 1%
Oceania* 52 0.06%
W Indies 1,289 2%
Other 5 0.01%
*(Australia, New Zealand, Fiji)
(We have the precise numbers by individual country).

14% of our prison population are foreign nationals. The Prison Service states that each prisoner is housed at a tax payer cost of £30,000 per year. That is a staggering total of £340,500,000 per year.

If these foreign criminals were returned to their country of origin, this would solve the prison overcrowding problem, and empower our courts to impose correct sentences for UK offenders who, all too often get away with a judicial slap on the wrist. At the moment, the criminal fraternity is laughing at the farce of British justice.

These are some of the consequences of uncontrolled immigration, a massive financial burden on the taxpayer that should be spend on UK solutions, a broken criminal justice system, prison overcrowding, a broken society with a rapidly eroding sense of national heritage and culture.

Other countries would not tolerate millions of immigrants taking over their society. Japan would not do it; China would not do it; India would not do it; Pakistan would not do it – so why should Britain?

Part 4 of 4

Each nation has the right to maintain its own traditional culture and identity. The right of India to remain Indian, the right of China to remain Chinese, the right of Pakistan to remain Pakistani and the right of Saudi Arabia to remain Saudi does not mean that any of these nations have to “hate” anybody else. All it means is that they wish to preserve their identity and national existence.

This is all we want for Britain – the right to be British and the right to openly celebrate events like Christmas that we have celebrated for centuries, without fearing the imaginary offence this might cause.

Is this such an extreme demand? Is this so unreasonable? – NO! In fact, it is perfectly normal and completely in line with the rights granted to every other nation and in accord with international law.

By its own reprehensible conduct - This Government is responsible for acts of utter treachery toward an entire nation that will have dire consequences if they are not reversed by their successors.

Thanks for that Dickiebo.

Have a look at these two sites, which are run by some heavyweights that we would hope could make a difference.

Migration Watch is run by Sir Andrew Green, a former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. They have a distinguished Advisory Council from diverse ethnic and professional backgrounds.

Since its formation in September 2008 they have provided research for the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration led by Frank Field MP (Labour) and Nicholas Soames MP (Conservative). Details of the Group and their proposals can be found at

Some eye opening stuff on both of these sites. In particular, if you explore the briefing papers and press releases, you will see some startling information that the public MUST see.

The Balanced Immigration paper is well worth downloading and digesting.

Common sense all of it.

Kind Regards & thanks again

‘It is just to make the message non-denominational so that it applies to everyone and so that people who don’t buy into Christmas don’t feel excluded,’

Well it's a point of view I suppose. I'm no devout Christian, but neither am I any other religion and what's more I don't feel excluded from Yom Yippur, Diwali, Ramadan or even Christmas, but I strongly object to some bint from BTP assuming I WILL be. That, for me, was the great insult.

Last time I checked, these were the Christmas Holidays. Just in the same way the Easter is the Easter Holiday, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, muslims have Ramadan, Jews have all their stuff etc. Americans don't make any apologies for celebrating Independence Day (July 4th) - the day they kicked the English out and signed the declaration of independence. Now to me, that holiday has more potential for stirring racial prejudice between the English and Americans and mentioning Christmas.

For crying out loud, I'm not even religious yet I accept that this break is the Christmas season!!

It's about time we (as a country) developed a backbone again and started accepting that you can't please everyone all of the time. You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs, and a bush in the hand is a bird in the bed.

And all that. ;)

Happy New Year everyone!! (If I'm allowed to say that - after all, it's not new year for the Chinese!!)

Many thanks for the post. I entirely agree, it is insulting to every British citizen, regardless of colour, creed or religion, that reverse discrimination can be used in this way to cause offence to those of us who take pride in our heritage and culture.

Welcome back, glad to see you're enjoying a few days r and r. Enjoy it mate.

The concern I have, is that the views and beliefs of the majority are seemingly either overlooked or ignored completely, in favour of this unecessary obsession with diversity. It has created a major shift in public perception and unecessary divisions between the cultures.

I do wonder if this isn't all part of some devisive plan to create civil unrest, then when the dust settles, the powers that be can say "look how we got the country out of that little mess" when in fact, it is those very powers that got us into it.

The immigration problem wont go away until someone recognises the major undercurrent of discontent and sense of unfairness created by failing to limit the numbers.(Priority housing, health treatment etc).

From what I have seen, the problem lies in the net migration figure, which is the numbers coming in each year less the numbers going out. It is the net figure that has been way out of control since thios Government took office.

This isn't a race issue any longer, it's about overcrowding and the burden this is placing on all sectors of society.

Is isn't racist to apply limits only to non-EU citizens. The basis for the controls needed now are nothing to do with race. That is a convenient accusation the Government like to throw at anyone who dares criticise their immigration strategy. If you are a French or German citizen of whatever
race, you have free access to Britain.
Equally, if you are a non-EU citizen you do not have free access, whether or you
are white or not.

Our main interest on these pages is focused on the effects within our society on crime and the additional financial and other burdens on police resources, and the Criminal Justice System in general. Millions are paid out in additional interpreter fees for suspect and witness alike, let alone the £340million it costs the taxpayer to house foreign nationals in our prisons.

It seems ludicrous that we have prison overcrowding when 14% of the inmates are foreign nationals. Surely it's not unreasonable to expect visitors to abide by our laws otherwise face extradition? It would certainly solve our prison problem and may even enable the judiciary to impose proper sentences.

It all centres around what is and what is not democratic. There is a massive imbalance out there suggesting that true democracy is in short supply. The Christmas message is the tip of a very deep iceberg it seems.

One of my spies was collared by his inspector the other day, who issued him a wallet/credit card sized plastic card. The inspector then ticked it off his list of those still to be so served. What was this vitally important piece of kit? The f'ing Home Office's `Policing Pledge`. The added verbal message was that they are expected to be randomly tested on knowledge of its content. WTF? As you say, the iceberg does indeed go deep.

Sick and tired said...

HAPPY CHRISTMAS, PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TO ALL MEN (Ooops, what a silly cow I am, now the use of the word MEN is going to offend some folk isn't it)

Bloody hell fire, have the police's marketing department got a bit of budget spare? The only people who are likely to be offended by the use of the word Christmas are the very people we should be afraid of. Scary.
