On 19 October 2014, during Sunday Morning Live's debate, 'Is the UK too hostile to immigration?' wildlife presenter and ex-Goodie, Bill Oddie, said restricting immigration was not the answer.
"There should just as likely be a restriction on the number of children that British people have because over-population is what you are talking about here, the big problem. So you say these perfectly well-qualified people can’t come in, but the woman down the road has just had her tenth baby. Well I’m sorry, but they are the people that really should be contained...
Historically, we seem to have built up this ridiculous idea that: ‘Oh, we are British, this is our island and we don’t want anybody else in it’. I personally loathe that kind of chauvinism and I’m happy to say I’m not proud to be British. In fact, I’m very often ashamed to be British.
WE ARE A TERRIBLE RACE."
“You’re talking like UKIP or something. For God’s sake, shut up... I’ve seen the whole culture absolutely burgeon because of immigrants. I love the fact that I walk down the road in north London and down here’s an Indian shop and there’s another Indian stationers there and this one is run by someone from Iran and there’s a West Indian guy who runs that bit and we’ve got the Romanian builders next door who don’t play the radio as loud as English builders.”
"What he is saying is absurd. He’s right – population levels are increasing – but that is largely driven by immigration, not large British families."Oh, everybody knows what the score is, Alp, even the PC Crowd.
It's just that they don't like admitting it. In fact, many, as with Bill Oddie, will outright lie about the state of play in order to maintain their own peculiar inner fiction.
Oddie lives in a London that, according to the 2011 census, is 57 percent immigrant. That statistic does not include the huge numbers of second and third-generation immigrants who were born here and, according to all the statistics, are out-breeding us at furious rate.
Perhaps, if he didn't live in a predominantly white, middle class area he might, despite the lovely, fluffy Indians, Iranians, West Indians and Romanians that animate his Hampstead idyll, he might have noticed our declining presence in England's capital and the rapidly burgeoning presence of his favourite folk.
Funny isn't it, nowadays a Brit-loathing luvvie can get away with dishonestly slandering tens of millions of British people and yet, if a British person had said anything similar of Blacks, Asians or Jews, well, we all know what the result would be. Brit-bashing (in Britain) is fashionable and encouraged. The opposite is vilified and is likely to end up in a custodial sentence.
a young lad who 'offended' her.
Garron Helm tweeted an image of Berger with the Star of David on her head, describing her as a 'communist Jewess.' He added:
“You can always trust a Jew to show their true colours eventually.”Berger said she was 'deeply shocked' by the tweet and 'shouldn’t be spoken to in that manner.'
“I hope this case serves as an encouragement to others to report hate crime whenever it rears its ugly head," she said.
I'd like to report an ongoing genocide in Gaza. You know, the one where the guys with the F-22 fighters, the helicopter gunships, tanks, warships and A-Bombs routinely slaughters the firework people?
You were the Director of the Labour Friends of Israel group for three years prior to your arrival in parliament, Luciana. I don't remember you expressing any 'shock' and/or 'offense' about Israel's genocidal savagery back then. For that matter, have you ever commented upon the issue since you arrived in parliament? I don't think you have, not in any condemnatory sense anyway.
One can only conclude that you find Garron's unfortunate tweet more 'shocking' and 'offensive' that the mass murder of Palestinians by Israel. Shouldn't I be 'deeply shocked' and 'offended' that his behaviour would have outraged you enough to see him imprisoned whilst that of Israel doesn't appear to move you at all?
Well, I'm not. In a PC age, establishment insanity is the norm.
“We welcome today’s guilty verdict which shows there is no place for purveyors of hate to hide.I guess, Mr Williams must think that no 'hate' is ever purveyed in Gaza. Or that Israel might be a nice place for non-purveyors of it not to hide. You see, I don't remember this achingly anti-'racist' Lib Dem condemning Israel either.
This ruling sends out a message to all those who use social media to send out anti-semitic, anti-Muslim, homophobic and racist comments that it is unacceptable and that we are serious about ensuring that those involved are arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
Are we allowed to condemn the British Muslims who had some sympathy for the 7/7/2005 bombers? What about those who subject their daughters to FGM and the 'honour killers?'
'We are a terrible race,' says an ageing Goodie (the embarrassingly unfunny one).
What do you think Williams and Berger would have had to say if he's said such things about the Jews? All hell would have broken loose, wouldn't it?
It's not going to happen, C-grade celebs only sneer when it's safe to do so. And, boy-oh-boy, is it safe to sneer at us.
Stephen Williams and Luciana Berger will never condemn Bill Oddie for saying what he said. You may, however, expect many more British folk to be imprisoned for tweeting the occasional negative comment to and about those whom the powers-that-be deem unoffendable.

I wonder, if Churchill was alive today, do you think Messrs Berger and Williams would have him done for 'hate crime?'
