Racist Gang Attack Innocent Woman in UK

Rhea Page, had been walking home with her boyfriend after a night out when the drunken women attacked her, knocking her to the ground and taking turns to kick her in the head.

She said: "I had gone for a drink after work and then I met my boyfriend for a couple more before heading home.

"We didn't want to stay out too late so we went to get a taxi and all of a sudden I heard these women shouting abuse at me."
"We were just minding our own business but they kept shouting 'white bitch' and 'white slag' at me.

"When I turned around one of them grabbed my hair - she literally wrapped her fingers in my hair - then threw me on the ground. That's when they started kicking me.

"They were taking turns to kick me in the head and back over and over. I was lying on the ground the whole time, crying and screaming. It was terrifying. I thought they were going to kill me.

"Eventually the police came but it felt like ages. Afterwards I was covered in blood and hair. I had a bald patch on my head where they had yanked my hair out and I was black and blue all over."

The four women - three sisters and their cousin - were told the charge of actual bodily harm, which carries a maximum sentence of five years, against  Rhea Page would normally land them in custody.

However, the judge handed the women suspended sentences after hearing that they were not used to alcohol because their religion does not allow it.

Miss Page said Ambaro Maxamed, 24, Ayan Maxamed, 28, and Hibo Maxamed, 24, and their 28-year-old cousin Ifrah Nur screamed "Kill the white slag" while kicking her in the head as she lay motionless on the ground.

"We were just minding our own business but they kept shouting 'white bitch' and 'white slag' at me.
 "I honestly think they attacked me just because I was white. I can't think of any other reason."

She suffered bruises and grazes to her head, back, legs and arms, and had clumps of hair pulled out.

Seventeen months on from the attack, which happened in Leicester city centre, she is still undergoing counselling and suffers from panic attacks and flashbacks.

She was left so traumatised by the attack that she lost her job due to repeated absences with stress and flashbacks.

 The gang of Somalian women who repeatedly kicked a young woman in the head walked free from court after a judge heard they were "not used to being drunk" because they were Muslim.

The four women - three sisters and their cousin - were told the charge of actual bodily harm, which carries a maximum sentence of five years, would normally land them in custody.

The women all admitted actual bodily harm and received suspended sentences.

The victim claimed that not jailing the women sent out the wrong message about street violence.

CCTV footage of the assault, which happened on June 18 last year, was shown in court.

Sentencing, Judge Robert Brown said: "This was ugly and reflects very badly on all four of you. Those who knock someone to the floor and kick them in the head can expect to go inside, but I'm going to suspend the sentence."

He said he accepted the women may have felt they were the victims of unreasonable force from Miss Page's partner Lewis Moore, 23, who tried desperately to defend her from the attack.

During the hearing, James Bide-Thomas, prosecuting, said Ambaro Maxamed, who started the violence, had called the victim a "white bitch" during the incident.

However, the women, who are all Somalian Muslims, were not charged with racial aggravation.
Nur, who joined in the attack after initially acting as a peacemaker, said it was in fact the victim's partner who had been racially abusive, but Mr Bide-Thomas said that was not accepted by the prosecution.

Gary Short, defending Ambaro Maxamed, said the attack was down to alcohol.

He said: "They're Somalian Muslims and alcohol or drugs isn't something they're used to."

As well as the suspended sentence, Hibo Maxamed, who needs dialysis three times a week for a kidney complaint, received a four-month curfew between 9pm and 6am.

The others were ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

I wonder what the outcome would have been had it been 4 white girls kicking and racially abusing a black somali muslim woman.

As you are aware, if a white English woman shouts racists comments on a tram she is held in custody and the media won't leave the story alone, yet 4 black muslim immigrants who kick a white English woman in the head while racially abusing her get off scot free.

Why are these women even in England, is there a skill shortage they are filling, or does it have something to do with one of them needing dialysis three times a week for a kidney complaint.

I think these 4 women should be deported back to Somalia, they obviously have no respect or have any grattitude to the UK or its people for giving them a home and medical treatment.

The racist gang are:
Ambaro Maxamed, 24
Ayan Maxamed, 28
Hibo Maxamed, 24
Ifrah Nur, 28

They live in Leicester.

Former Labour MP Margaret Moran sobs in court

Expenses charge ex-MP Margaret Moran has appeared in court accused of fiddling her expenses by around £80,000.

France bans Muslim street prayers

A French ban on praying in the street came into force on Friday, driving thousands of Muslim worshippers in northern Paris into a makeshift prayer site in a disused fire brigade barracks, angering a small but vocal minority.

The street-prayer ban has highlighted the problem of a 5-million-strong Muslim community assimilating into  French way of life and traditions, and follows a long-running controversy, fanned by Marine Le Pen, over Muslims forced to lay their prayer mats on the streets in big cities.

Interior Minister Claude Gueant directed Muslims in Paris to temporary spaces made available pending the building of a huge new prayer space and warned that force would be used if necessary as police end their tolerance of street prayers.

Seven months before a presidential election, the ban has struck some in France as an attempt to rally far-right sympathizers to President Nicolas Sarkozy's center-right camp.

At the barracks, Cheik Mohammed Salah Hamza oversaw prayers for Muslims who had migrated from around the city. Worshippers streamed in, spreading their woven prayer mats over the floor of the hangar-like building and out into the courtyard."It's the beginning of a solution," Hamza told Reuters before the start of the service. "The faithful are very pleased to be here.

The space, which holds 2,000, is full."Many worshippers were also upbeat. "This will be better than rue Mryha," said one man, referring to a Paris street renowned for hosting street prayers. "Apparently, it shocked people."

Le Pen has described the growing phenomenon of praying on the streets and sidewalks as an "invasion." "It's Marine Le Pen who started all this," a woman who gave her name as Assya said on her way into the former barracks on the outskirts of Paris. "Now the government has banned street prayers and sent us here so they can gather votes from the National Front party -- that's all.""NO SYSTEM CAN CONTROL US".

In France, where a strict separation of church and state has been in force for a century, public displays of religious activity are frowned upon.Yet efforts by Sarkozy's conservative government to restrict religious displays, such as a ban on full-face veils, have drawn criticism as empty measures that unfairly single out Muslims.

France counts the largest Muslim population of any European country. But only a portion -- about 10 percent, or the same proportion as among Catholics -- are practicing, according to Muslim associations.

As a rule, radical Muslim voices in France are rare, but Friday's prayers in northern Paris drew a small but angry protest from a radical minority more often seen in online posts.

An hour before the first prayer young men with beards, green headbands and banners gathered on rue Myrha to discourage worshippers from moving to the new site."No system in the universe can control us aside from Allah," shouted one young man. "There is more dignity in praying in the grass than in their false mosque," said another.

As the prayers began, dozens of young men belonging to a group called Forsane Alizza disrupted the service with shouts of "Allahu akbar" -- "God is greatest" -- and jostled with security.

In the long run, a new Islamic centre is supposed solve the problem. That is scheduled to be finished by 2013, although the timeline is far from certain.

About 1,800 more mosques are needed for France's estimated 6 million Muslims. The shortages have led to similar problems in Marseille and Nice.

Dutch Government Drafts Burqa Ban Legislation

The Dutch prime minister says the government has drawn up legislation to ban face-covering veils such as the burqa worn by some Muslim women.

Mark Rutte says the proposed ban will be sent to the government's legal advisory body, the Council of State, before lawmakers vote on it, a process likely to take months.

The government said in a statement Friday that the ban aims at "protecting the character and customs of public life in the Netherlands."

If, as expected, parliament approves the ban, the Netherlands will follow in the footsteps of European neighbors France and Belgium in outlawing face-covering veils. While Islamic headscarves are an increasingly common sight on Dutch streets, only a very small number of women wear burqas.

Leeds and Bradford named as UK terror hotspots

LEEDS and Bradford have been named in a government report as two UK's potential terror hotspots. The two cities were among 25 boroughs and neighbourhoods most at risk from Islamist extremism, according to a new report released to relaunch the ...

 TWO Yorkshire cities have been picked out as priority areas in a renewed campaign against home-grown terrorism after the Government criticised “flawed” attempts to tackle the problem in the past.
Ministers have identified Leeds and Bradford as being among 25 areas where funding will be targeted. They hope to stop British Muslims being radicalised with a new focus on tackling pro-terrorist ideologies and on challenging extremism in schools, universities and on the internet.

Home Secretary Theresa May revealed that some of the money aimed at stopping radicalisation in the wake of the 2005 London bombings – where the four bombers were originally from West Yorkshire – had been given to “the very extremist organisations that [it] should have been confronting”.
That drew accusations from Labour of political “point-scoring”, but Mrs May said funding should be “rigorously prioritised and comprehensively audited”, saying money would only now be given to groups which support British values of democracy, human rights and equality and participate in society.
Programmes will also have to prove their effectiveness or lose their funding.

She also promised a fresh effort to tackle radicalisation at universities – including training staff to recognise the signs of radicalisation – and angered institutions by accusing them of being “complacent” about what has been happening on campuses.

She also outlined a more concerted attempt to stop hate preachers targeting inmates in prisons. Former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis, the Haltemprice and Howden MP, revealed he was recently sent a letter from a Muslim inmate at a high security prison revealing inappropriate teachings by a prison service imam and listing “equally inappropriate teachings” in five prisons.

Unveiling a review of the Government’s strategy to stop people turning to or supporting extremism – known as Prevent – Mrs May told MPs: “In trying to reach out to those at risk of radicalisation, funding sometimes even reached the very extremist organisations that Prevent should have been confronting. We will not make the same mistakes.”

She said the greatest threat to national security remained from the al-Qaida terror group, so the majority of effort will be devoted “to stopping people from joining or supporting al-Qaida, its affiliates, or like-minded groups”, but said the strategy would also tackle the “insidious impact” of non-violent extremism which could allow terrorists to prosper.

The risks of radicalisation to Muslims growing up in West Yorkshire was made clear after suicide bombers Mohammed Sidique Khan, 30, Shehzad Tanweer, 22, Habib Hussain, 18, all from Leeds, and Jermaine Lindsay, 19, originally from Huddersfield, killed 52 innocent victims when they blew themselves up on London’s public transport network on July 7, 2005.

According to the Government, nine per cent of people convicted for Islamist terrorist-related offences in the UK between 1999 and 2009 were from Yorkshire.

The new Prevent strategy comes after doubts over the effectiveness of the millions of pounds which has been spent since 2007, often raising questions over where the money ended up and sparking unproven claims that the programme was a ruse to spy on Muslims. The inclusion of Leeds and Bradford among the 25 priority areas – 16 of which are London boroughs – means they will get extra resources for programmes run under the Prevent strategy, which will get £36m from the Home Office this year and focus more on tackling extremist ideologies, including work with mainstream individuals to make sure moderate voices are heard.

West Yorkshire Chief Constable Sir Norman Bettison, spokesman on the Prevent strategy for the Association of Chief Police Officers, said: “The strategy gives us the opportunity to build on this work and gain support from all our communities as we work alongside the Government, key partners and communities to prevent terrorism in all its forms.”

Counter-extremism think tank Quilliam said the new move was a step in the right direction but said it could be undermined by a “weak understanding of Islamism and extremism” and a “lack of clarity over how key parts of the strategy will be actually implemented on the ground”.

Labour Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper said Mrs May was “in for a fall” if she thought she could solve the problem without making any mistakes.

Bath City offer discount to Polish people, EHRC say this is OK.

Bath City Football Club have come up with a novel yet controversial scheme to try and boost support at their matches.

The Blue Square Premier club have offered the city's Polish community an 80 per cent discount to attend this weekend's clash against Grimsby Town.

On production of a Polish ID card, fans can watch the game for as little as £2.50, instead of the usual £13 to stand on the terraces and £14 for a seat.

The club have cleared the move with the Equality and Human Rights Commission but not everyone is happy with the decision.

Dr David Green, director of social think-tank Civitas, said: "It's going to upset people. It’s obviously discriminatory on grounds of nationality.

"I can't understand why this is in the interests of the football club. Imagine M&S wanting to make a pitch for the Polish market (along the lines of) if you could prove that you were Polish you would get a 10 per cent discount."

Meanwhile, some Bath City fans voiced their displeasure at the decision on a club fan forum.

"The people who have loyally supported City through the lean years, and the regulars who have come back, are the ones who should be rewarded, not one small community, the majority of whom will not return in the future," wrote one fan.

"This is another kick in the teeth for City's full-paying English supporters and I don't want to stand next to anybody who's bought a ticket cheaper than mine because they are Polish," wrote another.

However, acclaimed film director and Bath City supporter Ken Loach said he welcomed the decision.

"It is a good idea - I hope they will chant in Polish. There is a fantastic opportunity on the playing side and we just want to boost the attendance," he said.

Bath City have launched the scheme as part of 'Campaign 3,000' which the club have set up to try and attract their first 3,000-plus crowd at a regular league match since 1978.

The club, who lie 14th in the table, have been averaging crowds of around 1,300 so far this season.

Ned Vaught, the club’s communications and enterprise manager, said the move was anything but discriminatory.

"The EHRC said the Polish discount was allowed because it is a one-off and for a 'laudable' cause. The aim is to get Polish people to integrate," he said.

Bath City Communications and Enterprise manager Ned Vaught defended the project, saying other groups, such as students, had also been targeted. He said: 'One of the ideas that had been floating around for a while was to try and involve Bath's Polish community in the club.

'I have met a prominent member of the Polish community and he was enthusiastic about the idea because the community suffers from a lack of integration.


I wonder if the EHRC would allow it if the club only offered a discount to indigenous fans.

Whites only village no longer reflected English society

Midsomer Murders producer suspended over diversity remarks
Co-creator Brian True-May said ITV crime drama 'wouldn't be English village' if it featured minority groups

The producer of one of ITV1's best-known crime dramas, Midsomer Murders, has been suspended from his job after he suggested in an interview that there was no place in the programme for ethnic minorities and it was the "last bastion of Englishness".

Brian True-May, the co-creator of the show which began on ITV in 1997, said the series "wouldn't work" if there was any racial diversity portrayed in the sleepy village life of the fictional county of Midsomer.
Production company All3Media has suspended True-May while it conducts an inquiry and an ITV spokesman said the broadcaster was "shocked and appalled" by his comments.

"We just don't have ethnic minorities involved. Because it wouldn't be the English village with them," True-May said in an interview with the Radio Times. "It just wouldn't work. Suddenly we might be in Slough ... We're the last bastion of Englishness and I want to keep it that way."

An ITV spokesman said: "We are shocked and appalled at these personal comments by Brian True-May which are absolutely not shared by anyone at ITV.
"We are in urgent discussions with All3Media, the producer of Midsomer Murders, who have informed us that they have launched an immediate investigation into the matter and have suspended Mr True-May pending the outcome."

True-May was speaking to the Radio Times in advance of the new series of the drama, which returns to ITV1 next week. Originally based on the books by Caroline Graham, Midsomer Murders has so far featured 251 deaths, 222 of which were murder.

The show's original star, John Nettles, previously best-known for his title role in another long-running crime drama, BBC1's Bergerac, appeared in the last of his 82 episodes last month. He will be replaced in the leading role by Neil Dudgeon playing John Barnaby, the cousin of Nettles' original inspector Tom Barnaby.
Perhaps anticipating criticism of his comments, True-May admitted: "Maybe I'm not politically correct ... I'm trying to make something that appeals to a certain audience, which seems to succeed. And I don't want to change it."

The race equality thinktank the Runnymede Trust said True-May's comments were out of date and no longer reflected English society.

"Clearly, as a fictional work, the producers of Midsomer Murders are entitled to their flights of fancy, but to claim that the English village is purely white is no longer true and not a fair reflection of our society, particularly to this show's large international audience," said the trust's director Rob Berkeley. "It is not a major surprise that ethnic minority people choose not to watch a show that excludes them."

True-May has also banned swearing, graphic violence and sex scenes from the show, but his idyllic formula does not stop challenging storylines or other elements of diversity which do not involve ethnicity.
"If it's incest, blackmail, lesbianism, homosexuality ... terrific, put it in, because people can believe that people can murder for any of those reasons," he said.

Not all of the programme's cast appeared to agree with the programme's producer. Actor Jason Hughes, who plays sidekick DS Jones and starred as Warren in BBC2's This Life, said: "This isn't an urban drama and it isn't about multiculturalism. That's not to say that there isn't a place for multiculturalism in the show.
"But that's really not up to me to decide. I don't think that we would all suddenly go, 'a black gardener in Midsomer? You can't have that'. I think we'd all go, 'great, fantastic'."


I find it sickening how everybody has condemned Brian True-May and gone out of their way to make it known they do not share this view or that his view in no way reflects those of ITV or All3Media, and have rushed of to make enquiries into how this outrage could happen.

It is a sad day when it is stated that an English village that is purely white no longer reflects English society.
The other side of this is that now any non white who is shown as a criminal in the show will obviously create just as much outrage.

I wonder if the Runnymede Trust would agree that a gang of black gun toting youths, or a group of islamic peadophiles grooming 12 year olds would be amore accurate reflection of English society.

Lord Taylor: Thieving former Tory found guilty.

A former Tory peer has been found guilty of fiddling his expenses.
Lord Taylor of Warwick falsely claimed for travel and overnight subsistence, a jury at Southwark Crown Court decided by a majority of 11 to one.

The 58-year-old told the House of Lords members' expenses office that his main residence was in Oxford, when he lived in west London.
Lord Taylor, who stood impassively in the dock as the guilty verdict on all six counts was delivered, becomes the first parliamentarian to be tried and convicted by a jury over the expenses scandal.

Lord Taylor, of Lynwood Road, Ealing, west London, was standing trial for making £11,277.80 worth of claims on various dates between March 2006 and October 2007.
Thieving Conman John Taylor
The first claim was for £1,555.70, the second for £2,042.80, the third was £1,600.70, the fourth £2,309.50, the fifth £2,421.80, and the final claim was for £1,347.30.

John Taylor became the first black Conservative peer when he took his seat in the House of Lords in 1996, following a failed attempt to get elected as MP for Cheltenham in 1992.
Throughout the trial, Lord Taylor maintained he was following the advice given to him by fellow peers, that nominating a main residence outside of the capital was a way to earn money "in lieu of salary".

Prosecutor Helen Law said: "The prosecution say this case is very simple. Lord Taylor did not have a main home in Oxford and he was not entitled to claim as if he did.
"He knew that and he claimed anyway. He did so in a way that he knew would mislead the Members' Expenses Section into making payments he wasn't entitled to. His actions were dishonest."

Lord Taylor, who was once a barrister himself, was the first black peer in the Lords and has held many different media and charity roles in recent years.
He is the first parliamentarian to be tried and found guilty over the expenses scandal.
He will be sentenced at a later date.

I demand he be stripped of his title and barred from ever holding public office again.

Eric Illsley, another thieving former Labour MP pleads guilty:

MP Eric Illsley has admitted dishonestly claiming more than £14,000 in expenses, becoming the first sitting politician to be convicted over the scandal that has rocked British politics.
The member for Barnsley Central pleaded guilty to three charges of false accounting over claims for council tax, maintenance, repairs and utility bills for his second home in Kennington, south London.

Illsley was re-elected in May as MP for the Labour party in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, but was suspended from the party after being charged and now sits as an independent.
The 55-year-old was due to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court in London after previously denying dishonestly claiming more than £25,000.

But he changed his plea on Tuesday, admitting wrongly claiming a revised sum of about £14,500 between 2005 and 2008.
During the five-minute hearing, Illsley spoke only to confirm his pleas. The prosecutor accepted the revised figure and the judge ruled that sentencing would take place in four weeks.

Simon Clements, head of the CPS special crime division, said: "Eric Illsley, the MP for Barnsley Central, has admitted taking more than £14,000 of the public's money that he was not entitled to.
"This was a significant sum of money and the grossly inflated claims he submitted could not be attributed to an oversight or accounting error -- indeed he claimed that the expenses system was a way of supplementing members' salaries.

"By his guilty pleas he has accepted that he was dishonest in making these claims. As an elected representative, Eric Illsley took advantage of the trust placed in him by his constituents to act honourably on their behalf.
"Instead, he siphoned off public money into his own pockets and betrayed those who rightly expected the highest standards of integrity from him as a Member of Parliament."

Dozens of MPs were caught up in the expenses scandal , but Illsley was the only one of three politicians charged over their expenses who is still serving as an MP.
If he receives a sentence of 12 months or more he will be disqualified as an MP under the Representation of the People Act 1981 and a by-election will be held in his constituency.

Admin note:
I dont know what this If he receives a sentence of 12 months or more he will be disqualified as an MP. 
He should be dismissed now and banned from parliament for ever, no matter how long his sentence.

I as a taxpayer and voter demand there be a by-election in Barnsley Central.

Thieving conman and former Labour MP David Chaytor has been jailed

Former Labour MP David Chaytor has been jailed for 18 months for making false Parliamentary expenses claims.
Chaytor, 61, became the first politician to be convicted and sentenced over the expenses scandal which has rocked Westminster.

He submitted bogus invoices to support claims totalling £22,650 for IT services and renting homes in London and his Bury North constituency.
But the properties were owned by him and his mother, and he did not pay out any of his own money, Southwark Crown Court in London heard.

Chaytor, of Lumbutts, Todmorden, West Yorkshire, pleaded guilty last month to three counts of false accounting between November 2005 and January 2008.
The former MP is now facing a large legal bill for both his defence and the costs of bringing the prosecution against him.

Sentencing Chaytor, Mr Justice Saunders said the Parliamentary expenses scandal has "shaken public confidence in the legislature and angered the public".

Chaytor made the false claims in order to "siphon off" public money to which he was not entitled, the court heard. But he has now repaid £19,237, more than the £18,350 he received from the House of Commons fees office based on his fraudulent claims.

Chaytor submitted claims totalling £15,275 and was paid £12,925 for renting Flat 152, Hide Tower in Regency Street, Westminster, central London. But it turned out that he and his wife had bought the property in 1999, two years after he was first elected to Parliament, and paid off the mortgage on it in 2003.
In mitigation, James Sturman QC said Chaytor was a "broken man" who had already paid a "quite devastating price" for his actions.

He said: "He accepts he has brought shame on himself, he has brought shame on his family and he has brought shame on Parliament."
A Labour Party spokesman said: "David Chaytor had already been suspended from the Labour Party and following his custodial sentence he has now been excluded from the party."

Chaytor gave no reaction as he was sentenced. Court sources told the Press Association that the former MP would be taken to Wandsworth prison in south-west London to spend his first night in custody.

During submissions today, James Sturman QC had pleaded for any prison sentence to be suspended and a community punishment imposed.
He said Chaytor, a former university lecturer, faced further public humiliation if ordered to pick up litter or similar work because he would be photographed.

"We submit that the sums he received, if he had gone about it transparently, honestly and frankly, he would have been entitled to every penny, if not more than he claimed," Sturman said.
"The fact that he would have been entitled to claim for a second property has been somewhat lost in the clamour and hysteria surrounding the case."

He added that Chaytor had pleaded guilty out of "deep and genuine remorse".
But Peter Wright QC, for the prosecution, said the fact that Chaytor submitted false invoices proved that he knew he was breaking the rules.
"We say Mr Chaytor knew the rules, and we say why else would he produce false documents in support of his claims otherwise?" he told the court.

"It is maintained by the defence that his purpose in creating those documents was in fact to short-circuit the route by which expenses could be claimed. We, on behalf of the crown, do not accept that."
Chaytor had claimed £12,925 between 2005 and 2006 for renting a flat in Regency Street, Westminster, producing a tenancy agreement purporting to show that he was paying £1,175 a month in rent to the landlord, Sarah Elizabeth Rastrick.

But she was his daughter – although her name was disguised by using her middle name as a surname – and the flat was owned by Chaytor and his wife, who had already paid off the mortgage.
Chaytor also claimed £5,425 between 2007 and 2008 for renting a home in Castle Street, Bury, which was owned by his mother.

He produced a tenancy agreement falsely showing he was paying £775 a month. House of Commons rules do not allow MPs to claim for leasing a property from a family member.
A third charge related to two invoices of £995 each for IT support services in May 2006 when the "services had not been provided or charged for". The court heard that money was never paid to him.

Chaytor, along with the former Labour MPs Elliot Morley, 58, who represented Scunthorpe, and 57-year-old Jim Devine, formerly the MP for Livingston, tried to avoid prosecution for their crimes by claiming that criminal proceedings would infringe parliamentary privilege.

Although he has been given an 18 month term, with good behaviour he could be released by summer!  This means he could be serving 6 months at the most, so an 18 month sentence becomes 6 months max!

Morley and Devine face separate trials at a future date.
