Emma West of New Addington, London has been arrested and placed in “protective custody” following the publication on YouTube of a two minute 25 second recording labelled by the YouTube poster as “Racist British Woman on the Tram goes CRAZY at Everyone ! (Must watch!)” You can find the recording at (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pONVYjAd1wc). The recording was made by a black woman thought to be named Kelly Hollingsworth.
Here is a partial transcript of what was said during the recording published in the Daily Mail : ‘What has this country come to? A load of black people and a load of ****ing Polish. A load of ****ing, yeah… you’re all ****ing… do you know what I mean?
‘You ain’t English. No, you ain’t English either. You ain’t English. None of you’s ****ing English. Get back to your own ****ing… do you know what sort out your own countries, don’t come and do mine.
‘It’s nothing now. Britain is nothing now. Britain is **** all. My Britain is **** all.
‘Yeah its fine. I have got a little kid here. Have respect? I have a little boy here. **** you. I dare you, I ****ing dare you.
‘Don’t watch my language. Go back to where you come from, go back to ****ing Nicaragua or where ever you come from. Just ****ing go back.
‘I work, I work, I work, this is my British country until we let you lot come over.
‘So what. It is my British country, you ain’t British. Are you British? You ain’t ****ing British. **** off.
‘You ain’t British, you’re black. Where do you come from?
‘No, someone’s got to talk up for these lot. Look the whole ****ing tram, look at them. Who is black and who is white.
‘There is all black and ****ing burnt people.’
Her delivery gives her words an articulacy which is not apparent from a transcript. As you listen to her try not to be distracted by the copious swearing because the woman is a white working class Londoner, or at least part of what Jerome K Jerome called “greater Cockneydom”, and the effing and blinding goes with the territory. She is also speaking in a very stressful situation and allowance has to be made for that.
She does not come across as thick. The fact that she has worked as a dental receptionist suggests that she is at least reasonably bright. She is also respectably dressed and there is nothing in her appearance to mark her out as being mentally ill or on the margins of society. Her son (aged between two and three I would judge) is smartly dressed and generally looks well cared for. (Contrary to some press reports, the child looks unfazed throughout ). I can see no sign that she was significantly drunk or under the influence of drugs.
The teasing question is why someone like her would take such a chance, both from the view of what the police might do in oh so politically Britain and the risk to her and her young son of saying such things in a carriage filled with ethnic minorities and white immigrants. We do not know what happened just before the recording begins. It could be that she was somehow provoked by being in a dispute with someone. But her first words in the recording are “’What has this country come to? A load of black people and a load of ****ing Polish” and throughout the recording she seems to be addressing the general point of mass immigration and its consequences rather than having a particular quarrel with one person on the tram. Perhaps she started sounding off generally after a specific occurrence, for example, someone ethnic brushing against her or perhaps someone foreign making a disparaging remark about Britain or England. It could even have been simply being in an enclosed environment and hearing nothing but foreign voices in her ears.
But if it was any of those things it would only give us the trigger for her behaviour. There would still be the question of why Miss West would express such views. I suggest it was simply desperation. She lives her life constantly bombarded by the multicultural propaganda and unlike the white liberal; elite probably encounters circumstances every day in which she finds herself in the ethnic minority in her own country. She will feel that her country has been invaded, whilst at the same time being denied any opportunity to protest or have any mainstream politician put her point of view. That type of drip, drip pressure on the most vital thing to any human being – the ethnic nature of your society – can build a rage within a person like no other.
Since the posting of the video on YouTube other recordings of white women on public transport expressing similar views have appeared, for example, http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3969559/More-rail-racist-videos-emerge-online.html?OTC-RSS&ATTR=News. Miss West is far from being alone. Interestingly, there are also regular incidents of supposedly politically correct white liberals being crudely racist (http://www.minorityperspective.co.uk/2011/05/30/black-tv-presenter-called-a-nigger-at-the-baftas/).
In the context of Miss West’s case, the comments in recent years by the singer Morrissey and the comedian John Cleese about the effective conquest of parts of England by recent mass immigration are of particular interest. Here is Morrissey in the New Musical Express in 2007:
England is a memory now…The gates are flooded and anybody can have access to England and join in.
“Although I don’t have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. So the price is enormous. Travel to England and you have no idea where you are. It matters because the British identity is very attractive. I grew up into it and I find it very quaint and amusing. Other countries have held on to their basic identity, yet it seems to me that England was thrown away.
“You can’t say, ‘Everybody come into my house, sit on the bed, have what you like, do what you like.’ It wouldn’t work.” (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/morrissey-blames-immigration-for-disappearance-of-british-identity-760825.html)
In September 2011 John Cleeese said this:
‘I’m not sure what’s going on in Britain. Or, let me say this – I don’t know what’s going on in London, because London is no longer an English city.
‘That’s how we got the Olympics.
‘They said we were the most cosmopolitan city on Earth. But it doesn’t feel English.
‘I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King’s Road and say, “Where are all the English people?”
‘I mean, I love having different cultures around. But when the parent culture kind of dissipates, you’re left thinking, “Well, what’s going on?”‘
Both Morrissey and Cleese are expressing essentially the same sentiments that Emma West was giving vent to, albeit in much more restrained language and not in a public place. The interesting question is what would have happened to someone speaking as Morrissey and Cleese spoke who did not have their celebrity. There are plenty of examples of people speaking or behaving in a non-politically correct way in recent years who have had the police round to intimidate them before you could say knife, for example, the shopkeeper who had the police breathing down his neck after putting golliwogs in her shop window (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-452477/Police-order-shopkeeper-remove-golliwogs-window.html). The odds are that anyone without power wealth or influence expressing the sentiments that Cleese and Morrissey expressed would have had at the least a visit from the police.
It is also a fact that white liberals have an uncanny ability to arrange their lives so that they live in very white, and in England, very English worlds, my favourite example of this being the English folk singer Billy Bragg who is wondrously right-on and lives in Dorset, arguably the whitest county in England. The truth is that white liberals are not only aware of the effects of mass immigration on the white working class, but have inside them exactly the same primal feelings about ethnicity and the invasion of territory that those who openly rail against the effects of mass immigration.
There is a great deal of suppressed anger amongst native Britons of all classes about the profound act of treason which is mass immigration. The liberal elite have suppressed dissent to the extent that most people have developed the mentality normally associated with totalitarian states, namely, a belief not that certain views are morally wrong but, rather, that they are not to be spoken because they are dangerous for anyone might be a potential police informer. But the resentment is still there and growing. It will become an unstoppable political energy if a mainstream political party has the courage to release it by offering the electorate an end to mass immigration and the removal of all the apparatus created by the state which places ethnic and racial minorities in a privileged position and the native population under the ideological hammer.
The retention of Miss West in “protective” custody is positively sinister, as is the suggestion Miss West is mentally ill. It is reminiscent of the Soviet Union and Communist China still. Both are indicative of the fear the British elite have of the truth about immigration being told. They fear this because it would both dismantle the world which they have built (and which has often enough provided them with a very decent income) and the fact that the finger of blame for the treason would be pointed at them.
That the white liberal’s position is purely political and self-serving rather than principled can be seen by the tolerance they extend to racial and ethnic minorities, especially blacks, when they make nakedly racist comments about whites. The black Labour MP Diane Abbott was allowed to remain within the Labour Party despite complaining in 1996 about the employment of “Blonde, blue-eyed Finish nurses” instead of black West Indian ones (http://www.theapricity.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20066) , while the great black liberal totem is the unreservedly racist Muhammad Ali (http://livinginamadhouse.wordpress.com/2011/11/09/muhammad-ali-and-the-white-liberals/). All the white liberal does is defend those of whom they approve.
Her son will have been taken into care if there is no relative to look after him. It will be interesting to see if he is removed from his mother in effect on the grounds that she holds “racist views”.
