I sit here watching the news about Brits causing chaos and hooliganism in France. That is exactly what Britain is these days. That is what being British is essentially these days. Post bombing and terrorism attacks, we all start to put up ‘temporary’ posts of the Eiffel Tower and expressing out bitterness about the terrorist attacks. Yet when we are physically there, we lose all consciousness and destroy their country. That’s not terrorism, is it not?
I sit here watching the news about the brutal and barbaric killing of the labour MP Jo Cox. I won’t pretend to know who she was, but now that I know she stood for social justice and human rights, my heart aches and it weeps for such a great loss. A great loss to our country, to our future and for our off Spring.
What hurts me about this tragic case is that her killer has not been labelled as a terrorist? It is not seen as a hate crime. Had Thomas Mair been called Taimur Mia or Tanvir Majid, I wonder how quickly the media would label him as a ‘terrorist’? This country, my country, our country is becoming full of hatred and unnecessary envy because of politicians and media. People are being brainwashed daily.
I want to continue to speak about my awkward ordeal with a client during a home visit today. Today I was told by an unemployed lady that we need to vote out of the eu because this immigration needs to stop. “They come and steal ‘our’ jobs”.
I thought to myself:
A- you’re talking to an immigrants offspring
B- I’ve paid taxes in ‘our’ country for the last 10-11 years whilst you were sat on your lazy ass enjoying life.
C- there are bigger issues than immigration in relation to the EU.
I then had to tell her how a Labour MP was murdered yesterday to which she replied ‘I’m not even interested in politics, I don’t understand it’. 🙄
I at this moment in time, I have nothing else to say. I’m utterly disappointed and outraged at the direction we are heading to.
