BECAUSE OF A PHONE CALL.

As you can see it's been quite a few months since my last entry, mainly due to work and family commitments, so it came as a bit of a surprise yesterday when I received a phone call from the Weekly News informing me that they had had numerous complaints about my Blog and the fact that I am anti-Islamic, something I have never made a secret of.
The reporter went on and asked “Did I not think it wrong for a Councillor to have these views?”, well, no I don't. I explained everybody has a right to their opinions, the only thing difference is that I voice them and am not afraid of the name calling that usually follows.
He informed me that the complainants had said I was uneducated and ill informed and knew nothing about Islam or indeed Muslims; he was equally surprised when I told him that was not true and that I had lived amongst Muslims for several years in Africa and knew not only their religion but was probably more aware of their culture than most UK born Africans.
He questioned my right to say that, in my opinion, Islam is an archaic and wicked religion, which I certainly think it is, any religion that suppresses the basic human rights of it's followers is more akin to a cult than a religion. Any religion that seeks to assimilate other religions through acts of violence is wicked and vile and should be questioned at every opportunity.
The reporter went on to ask if I was racist or if I thought my comments were racist? I explained that Islam is not a race, it's a religion and that there are white Muslims as well as black ones and that I had left the BNP because race and religion are two different things, in my eyes, but not, necessarily with the BNP. This shocked him, not because of what I said but because I was ex-BNP, now come on, the Weekly News took so many pot-shots at me when I was in the Party it would be impossible for them not to know this, he didn't, which begs the question “where's the research before you start asking questions”.
The West's appeasement to Islam has been unbounded and we are now paying the price for our soft approach, other parts of Europe have had, are still having, problems with Muslim immigrants and they are now having to toughen their laws against them. France's banning of the abhorrent burka, the banning of full-body swim suits in Holland and the stopping of building minarets in Sweden are all signs that we have left it late in the day to stem the growth of Islam.
As I said to the reporter my argument is not with the individual Muslim as such, but you have to question their religion when it allows atrocities to happen that they will not condemn.
Religion, throughout history, has been to blame for nearly every major conflict we have had and I do not hold, personally, with any religion, there are good and bad in every religion and there are the extremists who push it way past reasoning and that is the problem with Islam... extremism.

There are plenty of people out their who agree with my views but, for whatever reason, never voice them, perhaps, in this ever increasing Politically Correct society I am a dinosaur but I have earned the right to speak as I find and reserve the right to do so, whatever my position in public life I am first and foremost an individual who has the right, for now, of freedom of speech.

Was it the new reporter, the one with an exotic name??

Councillor John Oddy said...

Hello Oscar,
I must admit, in the heat of the conversation I forgot his name but he was rather lacking in his knowledge of my history so I can only assume he is new.

Welcome back John we need councillors like you and Jason Wyman who are not afraid to speak there mind.

250,000 children labelled as racists Today’s governments are forcing us to live in what they believe is a multi-cultural Eutopia, when in fact for many it is a waking nightmare. Immigration is at an all time high and in the very near future traditional British people will be phased out.

For 13 years, Labour has indoctrinated our children through schooling and they are now reaping the benefits with groups such as the UAF set up in our schools, colleges and universities to counter anyone who dares to go against the establishment’s mentality

We benefit so greatly from diversity" squawk the multi-cultural zealots as they seek to impose more of their unnatural diversity upon us. "Our diversity is our strength!"

""Strength"? not if you are a native western European shrimp being literally eaten alive by immigrants arriving from the East.

As this news story shows, as American gray squirrels, Japanese Knotweed, spider crabs wild mink and numerous other imported alien species before them bad demonstrated, thoughout nature unnatural imported diversity causes untold devastation.

Well done Cllr John Oddy for highlighting this issue. Colwyn Bay should have an elected Mayor, - not the same old faces taking it in turns like some sort of club – and then giving each other medals? You would probably be voted the next mayor – if they dared be democratic and allow the electorate to vote on this issue.

The weekly News said that Islam is religion that preached love, and went on to quote the question "How long would a Christian Church last in Islamabad", most people can guess the answer - not very long before anything but love would be expressed towards it.
My question would be 'who are the people who are trying to make life difficult for people like you, who use our ‘freedom of speech' – is there Freedom of Speech in Islamabad for someone talking about religious issues?’
My guess is that the article in the Weekly News has something to do with certain councillors who seem to have no respect for freedom of speech. If someone tries to tell the truth, this sort of thing happens -- or they hint at 'legal action’ if someone is telling the truth about them.
Why I am being anonymous -- this is how it is in Colwyn Bay for most people who don’t want problems making for them when saying the truth about how things are here, and about certain (much disliked?) Colwyn Bay cllrs.
After doing very little since the election in 2008, and as they start to think about an election the May after next, we are going to see them trying to raise their profiles and articles will appear in the Pioneer and the Weekly News – who seem to do a trade off – they get news from certain county cllrs, sometimes before even the Town Cllrs are told–who have find the first they know about something is by reading the Pioneer or Weekly News.
In return the Weekly News and Pioneer ‘do their bidding’ and help them get re-elected – just watch the articles and letters appear with the names of certain Cllrs on in the 4 months before the next election (or go back and check out these papers in late 2007 and early 2008)
