So Hacking A Cop to Death Did NOT Reflect ‘Bad Moral Attitudes?’


 I remember Oliver Letwin from my time in the UK. He often spoke sense. Now he’s become a grovelling git worthy only of contempt.    Oliver Letwin apologises for ‘racist’ comments after rioting

I also remember the shocking news of that policeman’s murder, only a few miles from where I  lived when London was my home.

RIP PC Keith Blakelock, hacked to death by savages, London, 1985

ooooooooo

Letwin spoke for millions of outraged Brits when he  wrote that memo, millions who barely got by, were years on council waiting lists, were jobless, many of them life-long Labour voters…

Oh yeah?

  • ….but would NEVER have contemplated behaving like the foul savages they saw on tv newsreels that night some thirty years ago. They shared Letwin’s take on the matter, because THEY remembered a better Britain. 

“The root of social malaise is not poor housing, or youth ‘alienation’, or the lack of a middle class..

Oliver Letwin poured scorn on claims that riots in the 1980s were the product of urban deprivation

0.

“Lower-class, unemployed white people lived for years in appalling slums without a breakdown of public order on anything like the present scale; in the midst of the depression, people in Brixton went out, leaving their grocery money in a bag at the front door, and expecting to see groceries there when they got back…

“Riots, criminality and social disintegration are caused solely by individual characters and attitudes.

THAT’S NOT RACISM!

To ascribe anti-social mayhem and murder to individual characters and attitudes  is the very antithesis of racism.

He was identifying salient facts, Not all blacks riot, not all whites are good citizens. Every individual, black or white, rich or poor, was then, and is today, able to choose between decent behaviour and brutality.

But Maggie unwisely took Heseltine’s advice and rewarded the war-zone neigbourhoods that had seen the vilest rabble run amok.

And what did this largesse produce?

So long as bad moral attitudes remain, all efforts to improve the inner cities will founder.”

 Fast forward to the London Riots about twenty five years after millions were spent on ‘urban deprivation’ –

MORE RIOTS, involvng hordes of ingrate, animalistic louts…

Riots in London and around the country saw widespread looting and buildings set alight

…some of whom who may even have believed the rot they’d been taught by the parasite bureaucracy of the ‘equality’ industry, that they were the ‘victims.’

I said back in the 1980s that the police should have been kitted out with guns and ordered to clear the streets at whatever cost.

Had they done so, the scum a generation later would not have dared stage an action replay!
