Ealing Southall MP Virendra Sharma invites ridicule by invoking apartheid when issuing a press release about recent high profile activity by the UK Border Agency is Southall.
I don’t think that the Home Office ad vans are particularly welcome or effective and I certainly wouldn’t want to be one of the drivers stuck at traffic lights but they merely point out to people who have broken the law that there is an alternative to being dragged off in handcuffs. Apartheid it isn’t.
The reason the ad vans came to Southall is because the authorities estimate that there is an illegal population of day labourers in the order of 20,000 in Southall. That is more than an entire new ward of illegals hidden in sheds and HMOs in the five wards of Southall.
Sharma has been a politician in Southall since 1982. He has literally seen the whole beds in sheds/day labouring culture being built breeze block-by-breeze block, shed-by-shed around him over two decades. Has he spoken out? (Yes, once after the whole matter had been laid out in detail in BBC TV news reports).
Sharma ends his press release by saying:
This is not the British way and is more akin to apartheid South Africa than modern multicultural Britain.
Before Sharma invokes apartheid he might explain why every single Labour party political representative for Southall comes from a Punjabi background. Every one of 15 local councillors for the 5 Southall wards. The MP. The London Assembly member Onkar Sahota.
Ealing’s Punjabi community is one of joys of living in Ealing and the way that the community has made a life for itself here is a model for others to follow. The unwillingness of this group’s leaders to share their hard won political power with others is a blot on an otherwise superb record.
The Ealing Southall Labour constituency Labour party is the largest in the whole UK and yet it is in special measures due to membership irregularities and has been for years. It visibly practices a version of ethnic preference of its own. How else can you explain the narrow ethnic background of every single one of its representatives? Where are the people of Somali descent? Where are the new people from the EU? Where are the remaining white people? Where are the Tamils, the Nepalis and Gujeratis? When will the Labour Party sort out Sharma’s corrupt back yard? Multiracial it ain’t.
