In my Inbox this week appeared an email from a close relative, (a holocaust survivor, now living in the USA), with a link to ‘England’s No. 1 Song’. (This is the link here). I hope & trust that he sent me this with an unwritten: “WTF?”, but I suspect not. Just in case, I replied with the following:


 Trust you all are well. We have just come back from a really good trip to Turkey – a week with the kids in an apartment on the coast, 4  days in Istanbul (great city) and 3 days driving to & from (very interesting). Pictures soon.

 As for ‘England’s No.1 Song’: I’d never heard/seen this before and, quite frankly, I was appalled by it. (The sort of thing that Goebbels may have come up with, if he was alive today!)

 I have done some Google-ing about it. I was relieved to find out that it is not, and never has been, ‘England’s No 1 Song’ if that refers to the music charts. Apparently the song & video was produced about a year ago by a certain Nick Van Riel who has a web track-record of expressing his extreme right wing views in numerous places including the website Jihad Watch and the  right-wing extremist website “Real Americans Defend Israel” on which he said the following of the Oslo massacre:

“By subsidizing these Youth Camps – with tax payers money – the Norwegians themselves created the base for growing not so innocent socialistic leaders. So the youngsters killed in this vile attack weren’t that innocent at all. THESE YOUNGSTERS WERE IN BED WITH ISLAM ALREADY”

 Unfortunately racists like this do have a wide, possibly even widening, audience. YouTube have taken down this video on numerous occasions and it continually reappears; to be viewed by 100s of thousands, many choosing to post messages of approval & support.

 Please disavow any of your friends who may believe that this song is truly a ‘No.1’ here in the UK, that this is not the case. Sadly though, and frighteningly, I am sorry to say that it most probably is among a sizeable minority of small-minded ignorant individuals. We need to be vigilant and condemn their opinions for the vile racism that they are.

 Love to you all from all over here

  1. Can’t see the link but by the sounds of it I probably don’t want to!

  2. Just seen this link thanks. It’s nice to watch a fully-informed youtube video which is entirely balanced and unprejudiced.

    It’s not racism you idiot. It’s anti radical Islam. It’s people like you, who put this country into danger because of your left wing socialist views, who welcome these radicals with open arms. The UAF is the most fascist organisation in Britain at the moment. The EDL membership are angels compared with the vicious morons who inhabit the world of the UAF, with their anti establishment and anti democratic demonstrations. Violent ones at that, so before you condemn Nick van Riel for his views look at theirs.

    Ahh more left wing rhetoric…. well unfortunately you have shown your IQ level to on the same level as the rest of the brain washed… the video makes light of the very real problems in the uk at the moment, you only have to look at the ons, 83%population increase in the last 30 years has been directly from immigration, disease has increased, crime, social bill has soared… the most that the left wing morons come out with is that it’s not fair to tar all with the same brush… your right it’s not for the hand full of immigrants that come here to interstate in to society and culture have an education and are hard working self supportive and won’t displace someone from a job you have millions of others that do the complete ofpposite. Many decade ago we had a very small positive (less than 1%) population increase, since then (as shown by checking the Offical national statistics) it has gone up exponentially, infrastructure has fallen apart, people blame austerity but fail to look how austerity came about… flood a country with millions of migrants lend billions to support this population increase, then years latter austerity because we are getting in to more and more debt, people blindly blame austerity for the destruction of our public services when it was categorically the introduction of millions of migrants and their offspring that has crippled the country. This is before we even get to the social side where entire neighbourhoods are no go areas, (I know this has been made fun of before but it is true witnesses it my self in many areas of the country, I travel a lot) they have been transformed and are unrecognisable and not for the better. There is no intergration and more and more laws in place to silence any one who speaks out against it (erosion of free speech), even schools have taken to left wing brainwashing instead of promoting critical thinking, our kids thank goodness question everything and even at a young age know what is good and bad and came to the same conclusion about how it’s not only wrong but also unfair that people invade a country (like someone invading your house) and people are forced to give them everything.

    Anyway I can go on I have had many jobs in both public and private sector working for the DWP my friends work for the home office and all say the same thing that the system is broken due to the very loud voice of the minority who are so stupid that they can’t see they are only supporting the Elite by allowing this continuous influx that not only gives them cheap labour both directly and indirectly (through suppression of wage) but also forces entire communities to split up (divide and concur!)
