(6) A favourite quote of mine from a liberal academic, Professor Quigley: “British rule in the period 1858-1947 tied India together by railroads, roads, and telegraph lines. It brought the country into contact with the Western world, and especially with world markets, by establishing a uniform system of money, steamboat connections with Europe by the Suez Canal, cable connections throughout the world, and the use of English as the language of government and administration. Best of all, Britain established the rule of law, equality before the law, and a tradition of judicial fairness to replace the older practice of inequality and arbitrary violence.”

(8) Trotsky is sometimes portrayed by his Jewish detractors as a self-hating Jew (and by right wing cranks as something far more sinister). Whether or not the former is true, he certainly had no time for anything Jewish; as with most Communists, he was defined by ideology rather than by race.
(9) THE HISTORY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION, by Leon Trotsky, Translated from the Russian by Max Eastman, published by Victor Gollancz, London, (1932). In Volume 1: THE OVERTHROW OF CZARISM, the word “Racists” appears on page 27, a passing reference, spoken like an epithet, although the context is unclear, it is apparently not in a white/non-white context. The word Negro does not appear in the index and probably not in the entire treatise. The book’s index contains three references to Jews, and none at all to anti-Semitism.

(41) Along with prostitution, slavery is one of the world’s oldest institutions. Although it often had a tribal basis, race has never been a necessary element of slavery; for example, blacks have owned black slaves, including in the United States.
In Britain and its colonies, slavery has often gone by other names; many indentured servants were little more than slaves, and up until fairly recently large numbers of human beings were in effect chattels who could be disposed of according to a master’s or the state’s whim. This applied even in England, Magna Carta notwithstanding. Finally, although slavery has long been officially outlawed in the white world, it still exists in many non-white nations to this day; white people have long been in the forefront of the fight against slavery, and remain so.

(47) In 1998, the Pakistan Welfare Association warned against the continuing influx of “asylum-seekers” into the country because “Britain cannot sustain such huge burdens of public spending for so long, and it will have serious impact on race relations in the country...” The organisation’s secretary Mohammed Khokhar opined thus: “Many of us believe that this country is being taken advantage of...” *
The following year, in a national tabloid, a correspondent opined that “OUR Government should be tough with illegal immigrants who are spoiling relations between locals and legally-settled immigrants in Britain.
Let the people who settled here under the previous and present Government live with dignity and respect.” **
Although opinions such as the above seldom find their way into print, they are not infrequently heard in ordinary conversation.

(48) And even truly fabulous wealth may not be sufficient in some cases, as a certain Mr Al-Fayed found out. While the British government dishes out passports left, right and centre to all manner of supposed asylum-seekers and refugees, many of whom bring their host nation nothing but trouble, it has stoically refused to bestow British citizenship on this flamboyant and colourful entrepreneur.
(49) See for example Asian Times, March 16 1999, No. 826, page 12 which reports that Bangladesh is being ruined by some 450,000 refugees and is attempting to repatriate them to India and Pakistan, but with no luck.
(50) Two examples will suffice from Socialist Worker, the newspaper of the rabidly Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party.
According to the April 20, 1996 issue: “The notion that there are different ‘races’ of people has no basis in scientific fact.” Just as fantastically the paper claimed that “In the Middle Ages Cairo and the African city of Timbuktu were greater centres of learning that the tiny universities of Western Europe.”
And in the June 22, 1996 issue in an article ‘Races’ do not exist, we are told that “The absurdity of dividing humanity into ‘races’ on the basis of skin colour is best seen by looking at other, often greater, differences between people” and that “Race is a political and ideological notion, not a scientific one. Steve Jones has written, ‘A race as defined by skin colour is no more a biological entity than is a nation.’”
This is a typical piece of leftist sophistry; race, of course, is not defined by skin colour any more than it is by nationality.
(51) I am loathe to use that term because there are often other factors behind such disturbances which are equally important. At the time of writing the far right is making a lot of political capital out of supposed race riots and racially motivated attacks (Asian-on-white) in the Northern town of Oldham. These disturbances and attacks are real enough, but they appear to be the work of street gangs made up largely if not exclusively of Asian youths.
(52) With a few exceptions.
(53) John Tyndall, who had been an overt Nazi in the early to mid-sixties, joined the National Front and was for many years its Chairman. Tyndall is still around today, and although he has his faults, an examination of his policies and his rhetoric over many years can only lead one to conclude that he is no Nazi. A far more sinister character than Tyndall is his one-time fellow traveller and (now overt) homosexual Martin Webster.

(58) This is by no means a modern phenomenon; the inaugural meeting of the British Fascisti (the first British Fascist organisation) was disrupted by “anti-fascists” as far back as October 1923.

(73) This is the now notorious case of Damilola Taylor; this ten year old son of an African civil servant was stabbed in the leg in South London in November 2000. He bled to death within minutes. The police launched an immediate murder investigation but to date no one has been brought to book. The person who wielded the knife was almost certainly a slightly older black boy although of Caribbean rather than African extraction.

(75) A few examples will suffice:
“No sane black man really wants integration! No sane white man really wants integration!...The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches that for the black man in America the only solution is complete separation from the white man!” [The Autobiography of MALCOLM X, by Malcolm X with the assistance of Alex Haley, FOREWORD by Alex Haley, published by Penguin, Harmondsworth, Middlesex, (1968), pages 347-8.]
Many successful blacks, especially black women, view so-called celebrity miscegenation with disdain. One black TV presenter said that “Black people in the public eye are expected to set an example”; clearly she felt they weren’t. [Mixed marriages put black celebrities ‘on trial’: Rising criticism accuses stars of ethnic betrayal, by Lesley Thomas, published in the Sunday Times, March 6, 1994, (NEWS page 1.5).]
The father of tennis aces Venus and Serena Williams has some forthright views on miscegenation. [Sunday Times, July 9, 2000, page 1.19.]
Abdul Hoque kidnapped his daughter “to punish her for moving in with a black man.” She was held for seven days; he was convicted of conspiracy to kidnap and false imprisonment. [Time Out, No. 1367, Oct 30 - Nov 6 1996, page 13.]
FORBIDDEN LOVE, a BBC1 documentary in the Inside Story series screened on the evening of February 3, 1998, gave an insight into the ostracism from their own communities faced by Asian girls who had taken up with white men.
And finally, the Chief Rabbi asks his brethren “Will we have Jewish grandchildren?” (This is the title of his 1994 book). Yes, of course, he was talking about religion, not race or ethnicity; the Hell he was!
