Local is as local does
Race plan for councils to pinpoint rural strife-News-UK-TimesOnline
Rural local authorities should identify “hot spots” where racial tensions and violence could become a risk, an official report will say today.
It will suggest they draw up “contracts” for new arrivals that would set out the expectations of local people and define what is and is not acceptable behaviour.
Cultural briefing packs ...would be drawn up by local councils according to circumstances in their area, a commission spokeswoman said.
Just Sod Off! The idea that the local council mandating an acceptable behaviour contract is too Orwellian for words. I'm sure Daily Mail readers will love the idea of a contract that towels aren't to be worn when shopping in the High Street, but once legal immigrants are forced to have contracts why stop there? Will the local council in Golders Green or the Curry Mile in Leicester also set local rules? Will they be to the Daily Mail readers taste? Are we all to have ASBOs to make us council approved sheep? And where does pandering to the local ghetto mentality lead us? To this being acceptable and supported by a man from the council?
Celebrity chefs told ‘get out of Cornwall’ by separatists-Life & Style-Food & Drink-TimesOnline Cornish separatists have threatened to attack restaurants owned by Jamie Oliver and Rick Stein in an attempt to drive out English “incomers”.
In a statement sent to a local newspaper, the little-known Cornish National Liberation Army threatened to firebomb the celebrity chefs’ businesses in retaliation for them “alienating” local people.
The e-mail claims that the group has substantial funding and promises to continue its campaign to remove the “imperialist English flag of St George” from Cornwall.
