A good while back I linked to a series of articles where it was said that the U.K. coastal boarder is incredibly weak enabling human trafficking. I listed this article along a great deal of others that described defence weaknesses not only in the UK but also in Norway.
Enter Sajid Javid who as Home Secretary in the UK is sorting out said issue. Upon his appointment there were people on the right who saw this as suspect, I even came across a story, or a theory, that England was now getting closer to becoming a “Caliphate“ due to the position of Home Secretary going to Javid. This is interesting considering that people with the same heritage and lineage betray each other all the time which is something that once again crossed my mind when I saw a ridiculous viral video clip of a White American shouting at another White American due to his Trump t-shirt. The embarrassing “interaction“ was witnessed by a quiet Afro-American bystander who was probably wondering what on earth he found himself in the middle of. I haven’t encountered any English Millennials helping out in the village where I live, for example, in fact it’s only me and I’m not ethnically English….
I would highly recommend reading this book about Norwegian War Criminals: Norway’s Worst Nazis by Bernt Rougthvedt. Of course this doesn’t nullify racism between groups, which I’ve described before, I just think it is most important to point out that things are always multifaceted and not nearly as straightforward and simple as many think. As pointed out in my book review above: German expansionist nationalism was explicitly just that, which is why there was no genuine room for Norwegian nationalists who thought that they could somehow cut a deal with Hitler. The torture and hideous treatment of fellow Norwegians described in the book is not uniquely Norwegian either since there is nothing new about civil-wars and internal issues within a Nation.
After Javid’s latest actions there should be no doubt where is loyalty is, sadly he now appears to be in the receiving end of accusations of racism since he is doing his job. Having access to England is a great, great privilege. He is very right in pointing out that illegal immigrants/asylum seekers pass a great many “safe territories“ before they attempt to enter the UK. It’s good to see that these type of issues are sorted out since they cause a lot of problems long-term unless resolved!
You would think that all of the critics in the media who published the articles that I linked to describing UK’s challenges would now be happy that something is happening. Here is the Twitter of the UK Home Secretary: Javid on Twitter.
