The anti English voice of Jeremy Corbyn

Much has been made during the Labour leadership election of the democratic credentials of frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn MP

However, whilst he has been very vocal on the issue of self-determination for the Palestinians for a number of years, the following article from Eddie Bone of The independent lobbying group, Campaign for an English Parliament (CEP) shows that he is not so keen on extending self-determination to the English – Indeed, he supports the EU plan of breaking England down in to regions as can be seen on the following video!

Residents turn out in force to protect the Green Belt

As previously reported on this site, the Green Belt at Hayes Park (Home Farm) has been put up for sale on the Rightmove website, with such phrases as ‘Prime development land’ being used in the advertisement.

CD Green beltAfter an initial public meeting organised by John McDonnell MP that was very well attended and interest from the local Gazette newspaper, residents organised a photo shoot with the newspaper where all were urged to attend and show the strength of feeling against the move.

A number of public spirited locals have distributed window signs and spread the word about the event across the Charville ward and the result was seen this afternoon where a large crowd attended and were backed up by riders from the local stables who use the area to exercise their horses.

Any attempts to build on the site will be met with strong protest, as today has shown.

The area surrounding already suffers from flooding during wet spells, which will get worse should the fields be concreted over. Added to the loss of wildlife, increased traffic and degradation of air quality that losing our ‘green lung’ would bring, there are far better places for developers in the area to be looking at in Hayes which has a number of brown field sites available.

If you would like to get involved in the fight to save our Green Belt, regular updates are  posted on a local residents Facebook site www.facebook.com/friendsofhayesend

A committee is also being formed to organise resistance, if you would like to be involved then you can contact the office of the Hayes MP via email mcdonnellj@parliament.uk

Four years ago, working together as a community, we managed to stop a proposed development on the site. Working together , we can stop it again

Mike Hookem MEP says ” Afghan interpreters MUST get fast track entry into UK”

UK Independence Party – UKIP

  • UKIP’s Mike Hookem MEP – “Afghan Interpreters MUST Get Fast track UK Entry”

    Posted on August 19

    UKIP defence spokesman Mike Hookem MEP has called for Afghan interpreters who worked with the British Army to be given priority to apply for asylum, saying they “should not be left to suffer at the hands of Islamic extremists”.

    Mr Hookem said there were “legal channels for those people who are in danger because of their work with British forces to get to a safe country and apply to live in the UK.”

    “At the very least, we should be extending the same rights to former Afghan interpreters as those already in place for their Iraqi colleagues. Surely the UK can also demand that other EU countries honour a fast track system for those who greatly aided NATO forces in a time of conflict.”
