Mass immigration has turned London into a city that is ‘no longer English’, John Cleese claims.
The comic was asked what he thought about British culture and the recent London riots during an interview on 7.30, a television show in Australia, where he is currently on a stand-up tour. He replied: ‘I’m not sure what’s going on in Britain. Or, let me say this – I don’t know what’s going on in London, because London is no longer an English city.
‘That’s how we got the Olympics.
‘They said we were the most cosmopolitan city on Earth. But it doesn’t feel English. ‘I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King’s Road and say, “Where are all the English people?”
‘I mean, I love having different cultures around. But when the parent culture kind of dissipates, you’re left thinking, “Well, what’s going on?”‘
The comedian was praised by UKIP leader Nigel Farage for articulating ‘what an increasing number of people in London are thinking’. He added: ‘For him to make these remarks shows a tremendous strength of feeling on this matter. ‘Of course other cultures are welcome, but Mr Cleese is right to point out that it should not be at the expense of the parent culture.’
Of the eight million people who currently live in Greater London, 2.7 million residents were born outside the UK, and more than 300 languages are spoken in the city.
While Mr Cleese has received a lot of criticism for his comment, which was to be expected given the culture of ‘treading on Eggshells’ that we live in, he was absolutely right. The influx of so many different cultures in sch a short time has been breathtaking, to say the least, however, this has not been without cost.
Successive governments have allowed London property to be used a car park for overseas investment, which has had the effect of pricing out people who were born and bred in London. Whilst people draw comparisons with New York, London has had a population and a culture that goes back for centuries, New York was founded in a different way to London. It is not that one is better than the other, but we must understand that the entire identity of London has changed in little more than a generation.
More interestingly, was the way that this was seized up by a race activist on GNB, who instantly made the comment about race and branded John Cleese a racist. If you watch the video, we have the Race activist Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a Russian immigrant who was actually agreeing with John Cleese, Konstantin Kisin, and Monty Panesar.
Look out for the way the Russian actually makes an example using the Scottish that could not be clearer, watch how the presenter responds with “wait a minute, let me get my head around that” because he did not like the argument and the race activist is getting agitated when the Russian actually discredits her usual racial rhetoric,
UK-based Cypriot Marios Demetriou, 50, was jailed for six years earlier this week for deceiving people into giving him £1.4m under the pretence that he would sue an NHS trust and police after the brutal murder of his mother.
Rather, Demetriou used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle for his wife and four children, Wood Green crown court heard.
After his 79-year-old mother, Eleftheria Demetriou, was murdered in 2012 when she was stabbed in her North London home 40 times by mentally ill neighbour, Somali-born Hakim Abdillahi who believed she was the antichrist, Demetriou began spreading the word among friends and through media interviews that he would launch legal action for failings to protect his mother against the killer.
According to the Sun, Abdillahihad called police the day before the murder saying he wanted to kill demons
Between January 2012 and January 2018, Demetriou fleeced a sum of almost £840,000 from 72-year-old Elizabeth Phillips, who in addition to being tricked into handing over money for sham civil litigation, Demetriou also fed her lies regarding the need for an urgent medical operation abroad.
Jailing Demetriou, Judge David Aaronberg, QC, told him: ‘’As Ms Phillips set out in her moving statement setting out the depths of your deceit, this fraud has totally shattered her life.”
A further £600,000 was taken under false pretences from friends and relatives, all of whom were told they would be repaid in full after Demetriou would receive large compensation from the lawsuits. Demetriou ultimately used the money to quit his job and to move his family into a listed £3,500-a-month Hertfordshire property, before purchasing expensive holidays, cars, and designer goods. One victim told The Sun: “We were told we would get our money back after he had sued the health authority and police.
“But Demetriou was living it up on our money while pretending it was going to be used to win justice over his mum’s death. The reality was that there was no court case.
“It was all a big con and people have lost their life savings. Using your own mother’s death to steal from your friends is as low as you can get.’’
The Mail Online has reported
London Marathon bosses have vowed to conduct a thorough investigation after event staff reportedly hurled ‘horrific’ insults at slower runners and even branded them ‘fat’.
Liz Ayres, a back-of-the-pack pace setter, confronted race director Hugh Brasher live on air today about the brutal treatment suffered by contestants who were allegedly yelled at to ‘get a f****** move on’.
In a stinging attack, she directly accused Marathon officials of berating the slower runners, many of whom were reduced to tears.
An apologetic Mr Brasher has now told MailOnline that an internal probe is underway to establish exactly what happened at the tail end of Sunday’s race.
There is far too much emphasis on what is seen to be be good, rather than what is actually good. On the one hand, we have an increasingly obese nation, with life expectancy actually falling, due to the effects of obesity, yet we are constantly trying to make excessive weight normal, in case we offend, it is not normal.
On the other hand, where we have people making an attempt to be active, to lose weight, to live a healthier life, they must be supported, congratulated and praised, they should NEVER be humiliated.
Just off Regent street, to the side of Liberty of London, is a street named 'Kingly Street' there is a Blues Bar called 'Ain't Nothin' But Blues Bar' There is live music every night, every night a different band, there is nothing like this anywhere else in London. Yes, there is live music, but NOT Blues, not like this. On my last visit (video below) the group playing is called 'Dust me down Blues band'
On Friday the 29th July, I boarded a River boat at Westminster after buying a one way ticket to Hampton Court Palace. The journey was due to take about 3 1/2 hours, I had never actually been on a cruise down the Thames River so it was going to be quite an exciting experience. Continue reading
