Jagdeesh Says … This Is Blatant Institutionalised Discrimination!

Jagdeesh Singh believes that the Establishment has a policy of institutionalised discrimination against Sikhs.

JAGDEESH SINGH – the National Liberal Party candidate for Ealing Southall – has condemned a recent statement and proposal by Conservative Home Secretary, Theresa May.

May suggested that anti- Muslim hate crimes would be given their own category, as is currently the way with anti-Semitic attacks. However, Mr Singh believes her statement and proposal represent a blatant form of institutionalised discrimination.

Jagdeesh was reacting to Home Secretary Teresa May’s speech at a Foundation for Peace event held earlier this month in London. Here, and with one eye on the forthcoming general election, she said: “A Conservative government would require the police to be recording Muslim hate crime, anti-Muslim incidents, as well as anti-Semitic incidents.”

The National Liberal Party echoes Mr. Singh’s views. We believe that either we all have rights – or none of have rights.

As a proud Sikh, Mr Singh has expressed revulsion at the British government not recognising “hate crimes against Sikhs.”

Although hate crimes against Muslims will be given special importance on a par with hate crimes against Jews, “there’s absolutely no recognition for hate crimes against Sikhs!”

Jagdeesh continued:

“Sikhs have suffered serious to intermittent hate crimes following 9-11. A Sikh was severely attacked in Noth Wales in January 2015. It received zero mainstream media attention and no response from the Tory/Lib-Dem coalition government, nor Labour.”

Mr Singh, 44, also speaks from bitter personal experience. In September 2004 – in Coventry – he was the victim of a vicious attack.

Jagdeesh believes that this non-recognition of attacks on Sikhs is a form of “enduring discrimination, from top down” and is “morally criminal.”

“Attacking a Sikh is clearly not as serious as attacking a Jew or Muslim.”

We believe that Jagdeesh is right here. We are opposed to any ‘hierarchy of suffering.’ If we are to collect information relating to various attacks, this information must include everything that – statistically – can be of use. This includes race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and religion.

Jagdeesh correctly points out that Sikhs will now effectively become ‘Third-Class Victims.

“Both Labour and Tories have ignored and neglected Sikhs who are one of Britain’s most positively contributing and enhancing communities. It is a powerful demonstration to Sikhs how unrecognised and undervalued they are by these two politically domineering parties, who like to pick and choose rather than be equal and consistent.”

We also note that Teresa May doesn’t seem to be bothered about attacks on Christians, Pagans or Athesits. Why not? Are they merely viewed as ‘Fourth, Fifth and Sixth-Class Victims?’

By only ‘recognising’ attacks on Jews and Muslims, the Establishment is guilty of promoting a blatent policy of institutional discrimination. No single faith or group should be given special treatment. ALL hate crimes against ALL faiths and groups should be recorded.

May’s proposal is blatent discrimination in favour of one group.

From The Liberty Wall – English Green Debate (3) – What Would Our Strategy & Policies Be?

What strategy and policies should greens promote in any election?

ENGLISH GREEN is not a political party. We are a group that is interested in ecology and its relationship with all aspects of human activity. How we co-exist with the flora and fauna and how we conduct ourselves in an ecologically healthy manner and how we achieve a spiritual and material well-being are of particular interest.

We would also describe ourselves as a pressure group, in that we would seek to persuade all political parties to put green issues first.

Theoretically, there’s nothing to stop a pressure group like English Green from standing in any election. If this were ever to be the case (and obviously with the forthcoming General Election in mind) what would our strategy be?

Additionally, what would be the main thrust of our campaign – and why? We would suggest that, in no particular order, any genuine green election campaign would revolve around issues like the redistribution of land, localism, the treatment of animals, population and immigration, climate change and renewables

This debate will be held on the English Green facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/167522623276444

National Liberal Party 2015 General Election Manifesto – Section 1
THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY launched its 2015 General Election Manifesto towards the end of last month. A packed meeting – attended by our candidates Sockalingam ‘Yogi’ Yogalingam and Jagdeesh Singh – heard various speakers outline the NLPs ideals of National Freedom and Social Justice.

At the core of our Manifesto is a call for Self-Determination. Our view is that Self-Determination should be both a simple basic human right for everyone and a building block for every nation. Thus the NLP argues in favour of both National and Political Self-Determination.

Our Manifesto consists of an introduction – which gives an overview of the concept of Self-Determination – followed by sections on the likes of Constitution & Political Reform, Foreign Policy, the Environment, Economy and so on.

In order to encourage debate and feedback – good, bad or indifferent – on our General Election Manifesto, we’re also reproducing it in ‘bite size’ pieces. You can find the first section below. If you wish to join the debate itself, simply go to our Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/groups/52739504313/ and look out for this article – simply post your views in the comments section.

The NLPs General Election Manifesto calls for National and Political Self- Determination.

The National Liberal Party believes in the universal principle of Self-Determination, both National and Political, which is essentially about giving people control of their affairs – locally, regionally and nationally.  Government for the benefit of the people, by the people!

Firstly, National Self-Determination.  This includes the following key points:

• We will work to make a truly federal United Kingdom, instead of a centralised government where everything is decided at Westminster.

• We will create a parliament for England.

• We will support the right of independence for all the world’s stateless nations.

• We will work for the preservation of the United Kingdom’s independence within Europe.

• We will devolve appropriate power to the constituent nations of the United Kingdom.

Secondly, Poltical Self-Determination.  This includes the following key points:

• Direct Democracy through the use of Referendums.

• Proportional Representation.

• Voter Recall of elected politicians.

• A “None of the Above” (NOTA) box on the ballot papers.

• Decentralise all decision-making to the most practical level.
