UK Goverment Message To Illegal Immigrants – Go Home or Get Arrested

uk immigrantsA pilot scheme that aims to encourage illegal migrants to leave the UK voluntarily has been launched in London. Vans displaying large adverts, as well as leaflets, posters and messages in local newspapers will be used to highlight the advantages of returning home voluntarily – while making clear enforcement action will be taken if they do not.

The two vans are driving around Hounslow, Barking & Dagenham, Ealing, Barnet, Brent and Redbridge and will show residents how many illegal migrants have recently been arrested in their area. They also publicise a hotline number that these migrants can call to arrange their return.

Immigration Minister Mark Harper said:

‘We are making it more difficult for people to live and work in the UK illegally. Every single day our enforcement officers are arresting, detaining and removing people with no right to be in the UK.

‘But there is an alternative to being led away in handcuffs. Help and advice can be provided to those who cooperate and return home voluntarily.

‘This pilot is just another part of reforms of the immigration system that have cut out abuse and seen net migration drop to its lowest levels in nearly a decade.

The Immigration Bill being introduced later this year will build on this work by restricting illegal migrants’ access to benefits and services.’

Voluntary returns are the most cost-effective way of removing illegal immigrants and save the taxpayer money. This pilot builds on the government’s current work on voluntary returns, which saw 3,699 voluntary departures last year.

The areas were chosen because they have either significantly higher or below average numbers of voluntary returns, meaning that the success of the pilot can be assessed. Community and faith leaders across the six boroughs have been involved in creating the messaging and materials.

30,000 off Duty Police Officers Marched London In Peace

Today In London more than 30,000 officers from all over the country marched through the capital in the only action they are legally entitled to take, in a show of defiance against police reforms and budget cuts .

To reflect the number of officer numbers expected to be cut, 16,000 of the marchers wore black baseball caps as they walked from Millbank, past the Home Office to Parliament Square and onto Waterloo Place.

Police officers are not allowed to strike, so today’s protest will be the most they can do to show how much they reject the planned cuts in policing.

If 30 odd thousand Police can protest without incident it just proves that protesters who do kick off are just thugs.

The children of today  love luxury.  They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they allow disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.  Children  no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict they’re parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, and tyrannize their teachers.

Young People have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations, moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning all their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.

OKAY!! Today’s younger generation are no worse than my own. We were just as ignorant and repulsive as they are, but nobody listened to us. Today they have freedom to make their voice heard, to get some where and do something with a ‘peaceful march’ yet all they really end up doing is causing destruction, pain and attack Police who are there doing their jobs.



Multi-Tasking Breasts Exhibition

Breastfeeding is cool as well as healthy, according to the message behind an exhibition that opens in London this week.

Get Britain Breastfeeding” – a collection of adverts designed by students at Central St Martins School of Art and Design – is the result of a competition run by the charity Best Beginnings, which aims to improve the country’s dismal breastfeeding record.

The winning poster, designed by Sophie Barker and Kayleigh Brooks, shows four pictures of a topless woman and carries slogans including “Tailor-made for him and tailor-made for you” and “Bond with your baby and bond with your man“. Visitors to hospitals and health centres across Britain will see the arresting image shown on this page as it is rolled out this summer.

“The key thing about these pictures is that they acknowledge that although breasts are sexual, they have another purpose besides,” said Alison Baum, founder of Best Beginnings. “What these images are saying is, breastfeeding can be good for your relationship with your partner as well as your relationship with your child.”

Ms Baum said she set up her charity to tackle inequalities around maternal and child health, and quickly realised that improving breastfeeding rates was the way forward. “It’s the single most important thing that can make a difference,” she said.

The government and World Health Organisation recommend breastfeeding exclusively to six months, but only 35 per cent of UK babies are fully breastfed at one week, and 21 per cent at six weeks. Less than 2 per cent of babies are exclusively breastfed at six months.

The younger the mums were, the less likely they were to breastfeed, said Baum. “We wanted to reach young people with this competition – boys as well as girls, because they’re the dads of tomorrow and their support matters hugely. The students who took part represented our target group.”

More than 100 images are being shown in the exhibition, which runs from this Friday to 11 May at the Dray Walk Gallery in east London.

Best Beginnings is also working with the Department of Health to distribute a DVD about breastfeeding that will be given to all mothers-to-be at their mid-pregnancy scan (it can be seen on YouTube).

“What we’re interested in doing is changing the bottle-feeding culture we live in,” said Ms Baum, “and that means challenging it across a number of fronts. I really believe things are going to change in breastfeeding.”

Why Do I Wear a Poppy?

Why do I wear a poppy? I’ll tell you if I may,
Because I believe remembrance is… not only for one day.
I wear it for the fallen, and for those falling still
For those who come back broken in body or in will.
… For the parents, spouses, siblings where bereavement takes its toll.

Whose pain will never leave them, It eats into their soul
For the wino on the corner, Of his old…life nothing’s left.
Now he wishes when in battle he had died a hero’s death.
For the lad who loved a kick-about in the park with all his mates,
But now his legs are held together with pins and metal plates
For the selfless men and women whose final journey home
Is in a Union flag-draped coffin on comrades’ shoulders borne.

For all those marching proudly In Remembrance Day parades
My poppy’s worn in gratitude for the sacrifice they made
