Bradford West: a notice of eviction for the old order of politics

The election of the preening jackanapes and sham socialist, George Galloway, to represent the electorate of Bradford West, is good news for British nationalists because it is bad news for the Establishment.

It is bad news for the Establishment, not because of the nuisance value of Galloway to the government and official opposition, but because it indicates the growing volatility of the electorate nationally, and their deep dissatisfaction with all three of the Establishment's parties, as well as its pseudo-nationalist safety valve, UKIP.

The British National Party had no candidate in the by-election. Furthermore, its 2010 general election result (which saw its candidate lose their deposit) in the constituency was considerably worse than its 2005 result, which saw it easily save its deposit.

For this to happen in the BNP's post-industrial heartland demonstrates that there is something seriously amiss with the party, and that it is no sudden illness but, on the contrary, a chronic degenerative disease.

The Democratic Nationalists saw their candidate's tiny share of the vote in 2010 become still smaller, despite the absence of competition from any genuinely nationalist rival.

Contrary to what some commentators have suggested, Bradford West does not herald the dawn of the new era of identity politics. It is as well to remember that at least half of its electorate remains English and that many of them voted for Galloway. He would not have won the election but for their votes, a fact he would do well to bear in mind. Equally, the Kashmiri and other Muslims who voted for the 'infidel' Galloway would no doubt have preferred, in an ideal world, to have voted in accordance with the dictates of bradree and chosen one of their tribal elders to represent them.

This was not then, the dawn of the age of identity politics. That is yet to come and we must be patient. It was perhaps, though, the first stirring of a 'peasants' revolt' against the political Establishment. The voters of Bradford West said "A plague on both your houses" to parliament and the plague was George Galloway.

For nationalism properly to exploit, for the benefit of our people, the growing public discontent with the old order, it first needs to put its own house in order. It should do so without unnecessary delay.

Paul Weston on creeping shariatization


Three Asians charged with child sex crimes

BULLFINCH UPDATE: Six men appear in court

THREE men have appeared in court so far today after police raids on an alleged child sex ring in Oxford.

The men - who can now be named for the first time - appeared at a magistrates’ court.

Thirty-one-year-old hospital porter Akhtar Dogar, of Tawney Street, East Oxford, faces three charges of rape, one of conspiring to rape a child, three of arranging the prostitution of a child, one of making a threat to kill and one of trafficking. [Emphasis mine].

His 30-year-old unemployed brother Anjun Dogar faces one charge of conspiring to rape a child, one of arranging prostitution of a child and trafficking. [Emphasis mine].

Twenty-six-year-old security guard Kamar Jamil, of Aldrich Road, Summertown, faces four charges of rape, two of arranging the prostitution of a child, one of making a threat to kill and one of possession of cocaine with intent to supply. [Emphasis mine].

They were remanded in custody to appear at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday, March 30.

Three more defendants in the case are facing court this afternoon.

They are a 37-year-old man who faces two charges of conspiracy to rape a child and one of supplying a class A drug to a child, a 32-year-old who faces one charge of rape and a 26-year-old man who faces 10 charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child.

The charges follow a series of dawn raids across Oxford on Thursday, under the codename Operation Bullfinch.

The investigation was launched after Oxfordshire County Council staff began [!] to fear why several girls were disappearing from their homes.

Authorities believe 24 girls aged between 11 and 16 may have been affected.

Seven other men have been released on police bail until April while enquiries continue.

Marriage 1 Government 0

'Gay marriage' is not a human right: European ruling torpedos Coalition stance

By Steve Doughty

21 March 2012

Same-sex marriages are not a human right, European judges have ruled.

Their decision shreds the claim by ministers that gay marriage is a universal human right and that same-sex couples have a right to marry because their mutual commitment is just as strong as that of husbands and wives.

The ruling was made by judges of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg following a case involving a lesbian couple in a civil partnership who complained the French courts would not allow them to adopt a child as a couple.

The ruling also says that if gay couples are allowed to marry, any church that offers weddings will be guilty of discrimination if it declines to marry same-sex couples.

It means that if MPs legislate for same-sex marriage, the Coalition’s promise that churches will not be compelled to conduct the weddings will be worthless.

The ruling comes just days after the Government published a consultation paper which promised marriage to same-sex couples and made clear that Britain is only catching up with other countries.

Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone said: ‘Put simply, it’s not right that a couple who love each other and want to formalize a commitment to each other should be denied the right to marry.’

However, the Strasbourg judges ruled that because the French couple were civil partners, they did not have the rights of married people, who in France have the sole right to adopt a child as a couple.

They declared: ‘The European Convention on Human Rights does not require member states’ governments to grant same-sex couples access to marriage.’

The judges added that couples who are not married do not enjoy the same status as those who are.

‘With regard to married couples, the court considers that in view of the social, personal, and legal consequences of marriage, the applicants’ legal situation could not be said to be comparable to that of married couples.’

The French civil partners, Valerie Gas and Nathalie Dubois, tried to secure marriage rights under clauses that prevent discrimination and protect privacy and family life.

But the Strasbourg judges said there had been no discrimination against them because they were Lesbians.

Lawyers said the decisions transformed the impact of David Cameron’s planned same-sex marriage law.

Neil Addison, a specialist in discrimination law, said: ‘Once same-sex marriage has been legalized then the partners to such a marriage are entitled to exactly the same rights as partners in a heterosexual marriage.

This means that if same-sex marriage is legalised in the UK it will be illegal for the Government to prevent such marriages happening in religious premises.’

The Government’s consultation paper also said that no church would have to conduct 'gay' weddings. It said there would be different legal categories of civil and religious marriage and same-sex couples would not be allowed religious marriages.

But Church of England lawyers have already warned that if same-sex marriage goes ahead, then equality law is likely to force churches to fall into line and perform the wedding ceremonies.

The Strasbourg ruling won praise from campaigners against same-sex marriage.

Norman Wells, of the Family Education Trust, said: ‘For too long campaigners have been using the language of rights in an attempt to add moral force to what are nothing more than personal desires.

‘In many cases they have bypassed the democratic process and succeeded in imposing their views on the rest of the population by force of law.

‘We are seeing the same principle at work in the Government’s sham of a consultation on same-sex marriage.’

He added: ‘The ruling from the ECHR will embolden those whose concerns about same-sex marriage and adoption are not inspired by personal hatred and animosity, but by a genuine concern for the well-being of children and the welfare of society.

‘Instead of rushing to legislate without seriously considering the views of the electorate, the Government should be encouraging a measured public debate on the nature and meaning of marriage.’

The Stonewall pressure group called for same-sex couples to be allowed religious weddings if churches agreed.

It added: ‘The vitriol seen in statements by many political and religious figures, particularly some senior clerics, in advance of this consultation demonstrates the persistence of deeply worrying prejudice towards gay people.’

One more benefit of immigration?

11 November 2010

Lancashire police officer Salim Razaq was drug dealer

A Lancashire police sergeant was "actively involved" in a major drug dealing operation with his brother, Liverpool Crown Court has been told.

Salim Razaq, 33, hid guns, intimidated witnesses and tried to use drug money to fund his gangster brother's bail.

He previously admitted perverting the course of justice, possessing firearms and misconduct in a public office.

The sentencing hearing for the officer, of Walton-le-Dale, his brother, mother and three others, started on Thursday.

It was adjourned until Tuesday.

Razaq also pleaded guilty to possessing ammunition, conspiracy to transfer criminal property, conspiracy to acquire or retain criminal property and misconduct in public office by wrongfully accessing Lancashire Police's "Sleuth" computer database to obtain information about family and acquaintances.

'Divided loyalty'

The officer, who was sacked in June, was caught when he plotted to help his brother, Hafiz, known as "The Enforcer" and "Big Haf", escape prosecution for his role in a violent turf war between drugs gangs in Preston.

Police were listening in on phone calls Hafiz, 25, made to his brother from jail and the pair were overheard discussing their money laundering and witness intimidation plans.

Their attempts were unsuccessful as Hafiz Razaq was ultimately jailed for six years.

Robert Altham, prosecuting, said: "It is not that he (Salim Razaq) lost his way and found himself involved in criminality. He was actively involved."

Machine guns were found at Razaq's home during a police raid in March Razaq "adopted the elements of a criminal lifestyle" when helping his younger brother evade justice, Mr Altham said.

He used a sequence of 12 pay-as-you-go mobile phones in an effort to hide his offending and paid for credit on a phone Hafiz was using illegally from inside prison.

"Salim was acting as his brother's agent on the outside", Mr Altham said.

He had accounts in relation to Hafiz's drugs activity, collected his debts, and laundered cash through various accounts and used it to pay for his mother's bail, Mr Altham said.

Police raided Razaq's home in March and found three machine guns, ammunition and more than £70,000 in cash.

Andrew Menary, QC, defending, said: "Salim Razaq did not start out as a bad and corrupt police officer.

"His problems and his downfall came about because of his divided loyalty. [Emphasis mine].

"Salim was placed in a situation where he had to make a choice between loyalty to his family and loyalty to the rule of law and the police force."

Mr Menary said Razaq had been "a minder" of the weapons found at his home.

He said he was asked to look after them by a man he knew to be violent and he feared would harm his family.

"He had not any intention of using them himself," he added.

Hafiz Razaq, Gulshan Razaq, 58, of Chester Road, Preston, and three others also admitted charges in relation to the case.

Accused are sick people, states witness

I stole cash from men for revenge, Rochdale sex ring jury told

John Scheerhout

15 March, 2012

A teenager has told a child-sex grooming trial she stole money from the men who allegedly abused her because she wanted revenge.

The girl spoke out at the end of cross examination on behalf of Abdul Aziz, 41, who she had accused of raping her twice in the back of his taxi.

She had previously told the jury at Liverpool Crown Court – where Mr Aziz and 10 other [Muslim] men from Rochdale and Oldham are on trial – that she stole hundreds of pounds from a number of jackets the morning after she is alleged to have been raped at a flat in Rochdale.

The girl admitted she went to the Trafford Centre on a spending spree with the money. Asked by Ahmed Nadim, defending Mr Aziz, whether the money was to fund her ‘lifestyle’, the girl answered: "I don’t care for money. I took their money because I wanted revenge.

"I could not go to the police because I felt dirty. I was vulnerable. At the end of the day, I wanted revenge one way or another and the only way I could do something was to take their money."

Pressed further by Mr Nadim, the girl broke down as she said: "You are sitting there thinking you know everything and you don’t. I took something from them. They took something from me."

Asked why she continued to associate with men she had described as ‘sick people’, she said: "I don’t know. I was vulnerable. I was a teenager who was vulnerable. I didn’t really care about my life at the time so going out, getting drunk and getting drugs for free – that was all I really cared about."

Asked if she wanted sex for free as well, she responded: "If I wanted sex, I wouldn’t go to old, smelly, dirty men that are all in the courtroom now.

"If I wanted sex, I would go to someone who respects me and liked me."

Later, the girl told the court she was pretending ‘everything was normal’ in a series of apparently friendly text messages between her and another defendant, Mohammed Sajid, 35, who is accused of raping her while she slept.

Kabeer Hassan, 24, Abdul Aziz, 41, Abdul Rauf, 43, Mohammed Sajid, 35, Adil Khan, 42, Abdul Qayyum, 43, of Ramsay Street, Rochdale, Mohammed Amin, 44, Qamar Shahzad, 29, Liaquat Shah, 41, and Hamid Safi, 22, are charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16.

They have all pleaded not guilty along with a 59-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons.

He also denies two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Mr Hassan, of Lacrosse Avenue, Oldham, and Mr Shahzad, of Tweedale Street, Rochdale, also deny rape.

Mr Aziz, of Armstrong Hurst Close, Rochdale, denies two counts of rape and one allegation of trafficking for sexual exploitation. Mr Khan, of Oswald Street, and Mr Rauf, of Darley Road, both in Rochdale, have also pleaded not guilty to trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Mr Sajid, of Jepheys Street, Rochdale, denies trafficking, two counts of rape and one allegation of sexual activity with a child.

Mr Amin, of Falinge Road, Rochdale, denies sexual assault. Mr Shah and Mr Safi, both of Kensington Street, Rochdale, each denied two counts of rape and Mr Safi has also pleaded not guilty to trafficking.

Introducing Nationalist Unity

Introducing the Nationalist Unity Forum

Posted by admin02, on 13 March, 2012, to the Forum  

By Andrew Brons MEP

This website has had an unplanned and unpredictable history. It came into being for one purpose only: to be a redirection point leading to my MEP website.

Until about April 2011 there was a link between the main BNP website and the website containing details of my work as an MEP. Any visitor to the BNP website would have been invited to follow the link and visit my MEP website.

In April 2011 this link was severed by those controlling the BNP website; I had become a non-person. The link was restored during the leadership election but cut again shortly afterwards.

Our objective was for those who simply googled ‘BNP’ or ‘British National Party’ to find links, not only to the official BNP website but also to the BNP Ideas website, which would have a prominent link to my newly-orphaned MEP website.

As a re-direction point, it could not stand simply empty of content, so it was ‘filled’ with articles from the last (unpublished) issue of Identity magazine.

When they had been read, we found that we had attracted a steady flow of contributions from the Party’s best writers. BNP Ideas had indeed earned the ‘Ideas’ title that had originally been chosen simply because it was one of the few BNP domain names available to us.

During the leadership campaign, the official website scarcely paid lip service to its proper role of neutrality and became the factional tool of the Griffin campaign.

In particular it hosted his unconstitutional ‘extra’ 50 point attack on me and his unauthorised second leadership video.

BNP Ideas served to point out the misbehaviour of the Griffin Gang and its controllers of the official website but without being used as an unauthorised purveyor of ‘Vote for Brons’ messages.

Since the leadership election the Nationalist diaspora has gone into top gear and important activists have left to join the National Front and the English Democratic Party, supplementing those who had already joined the British Freedom Party (and its break-away group) and Britain First.

Of course, quite as many have left to join the None-of-the-Above-Party and dropped out altogether.

We realised that to form yet another fragment of the BNP, by establishing yet another micro-party, would serve to reinforce division rather than encourage reunification.

Our task would be to act as a catalyst for reunification by organising events that would bring BNP refugees clinging to other parties back in contact with each other.

If a new party had to be formed eventually it would have to follow a process of reunification, rather preceding it.

That process of reunification needed a website and BNP Ideas fulfilled that role.

However, the title might be appropriate for me, who remains a member (though a somewhat estranged member described as ‘vermin’ by the current Chairman).

It is highly inappropriate for those who have left to join or create some other party. The circumstances demanded a new name and Nationalist Unity Forum was chosen.

* This website encourages all genuine nationalists to submit articles for publication. Please refrain from attacking other parties, and instead focus on political issues of the day, and how your party/organisation would go about solving them.

Allen the Alien?

Keith Allen, looking rather like the wee lad who played the banjo in Deliverance, forty years on, achieves the extraordinary feat of making Nick Griffin look almost wholesome by comparison. If I were Griffin I'd always want to have Allen, or some other similarly contemptible drongo, by my side to make me look normal. Come to think of it, though, isn't this exactly what Griffin has always contrived anyway?

It was amusing to hear Griffin, when talking about his past, refer to his "going out to work". It is common knowledge that the man has never had a proper job in his life, that lasted more than a few weeks. In fact, the only interest that politics in general and nationalism in particular, has ever held for Griffin has been as a convenient way of 'dodging the column' and avoiding having to work for a living.

The foul-mouthed Allen is so ignorant he thinks that Brussels is in Central Europe. Mind you, he was spot on with one of his questions to Brother Leader. As they sit chatting in Griffin's office at the European 'parliament' Allen asks him "What do you do here?" There's really no good answer to that one.

Allen argues that because the British National Party received many more votes in 2010, than it had received at the previous general election in 2005, it actually did relatively well. However, he omits to mention that the BNP also fielded many more candidates in 2010 than at any previous general election, making this outcome unsurprising. The overall tally of votes increased, certainly, but the party's average share of the vote, in the constituencies it contested, went from 4.5 % to 3.1 %.

Having so many candidates was a logistical achievement, not an electoral success. The cost of all the additional lost deposits alone was an extra financial burden which the party could ill afford. Just as in the case of the National Front in 1979, the BNP overreached itself in a general election. Politically the result was demoralizing and financially it was ruinous.

Allen's admission that he asked a cafe proprietor to move a disabled couple who were enjoying a meal together, so that their presence would not inconvenience his film crew, shows him to be a hypocritical bigot. His feeble attempt to pin the blame for this bullying on the BNP shows him to be a moral coward as well.

Positive Griffinism in action

Democratic Nationalists fight for Bradford West

Bradford by-election: Eight candidates fight for seat

Eight candidates will contest the forthcoming Bradford West by-election caused by the resignation of Labour MP Marsha Singh due to ill health.

Deputy Leader of Bradford Council, Imran Hussain, seeks to defend the seat for Labour on 29 March.

Other major [ie, Establishment] party candidates are Conservative businesswoman Jackie Whiteley and Liberal Democrat city councillor Jeanette Sunderland.

Also standing is former Respect MP, George Galloway.

UKIP's Sonja McNally and Dawud Islam of the Green Party were both announced before the nominations closed on Wednesday night.

The final two candidates are Neil Craig of the Democratic Nationalists and Alan 'Howling Laud' Hope, who will stand for the Monster Raving Loony William Hill Party.

Mr Singh held the seat at the 2010 general election with a majority of just under 6,000. The constituency has been held by Labour since 1974.


Peanuts off the menu for fat cat Griffin?

MEPs force rethink on 'far-right' funding

15 March, 2012

By Andy Carling

There was outrage among MEPs across the political spectrum in February, when the Bureau of the European Parliament, (which administers the Parliament and comprises the presidents, and MEPs voted onto the body by their peers,) decided to allocate funds to two pan-European political 'parties' that comprise several of the continent’s most 'extreme' parties.

The 'party' up for funding was the Alliance of European Nationalist Movements (AEMN), which consists of the Belgian Front National, Hungary’s Jobbik, Italian Tricolour Flame, Portugal’s National Renovator Party, Spain’s Republican Social Movement, Sweden’s National Democrats, Ukraine’s Svoboda and the British National Party. Although Marine Le Pen left the group, Front National MEP Bruno Gollnisch (NI, FR) is the president of the Alliance, British MEP Nick Griffin (NI, UK) is vice president [how appropriate] and Jobbik’s MEP Béla Kovács is treasurer.

The objections from deputies arose from Article 3(c) of the requirements for meeting funding requirements, stating that a pan-European 'party' “must observe, in particular in its 'programme' and in its activities, the principles on which the European Union is founded, namely, the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms [!], and the rule of law”.

Andrew Duff MEP (ALDE, UK) wrote to newly elected Parliament President, Martin Schulz: “I note that the AEMN has no website and does not self-evidently publish its programme, so I must ask how the secretary general and the Bureau came to the conclusion that these qualitative criteria are met.”

Several members of the centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) group also wrote to complain and it is understood that some UK socialist deputies were pushing for all funding to pan-European 'parties' to be halted for 2012, even though it would heavily hit their own group and the [so-called] Party of European Socialists.

EPP MEP and secretary general of the 'party' Antonio López-Istúriz strongly criticised the decision at the latest EPP political assembly. It is known that he was infuriated by the decision from day one.

Many are also furious at Parliamentary officials whose report stated the new 'far right party' met the criteria, leaving Bureau members to believe they had no choice other than to approve the funding.

The decision was also seen as aligning the Bureau against the Parliament’s long record of opposing racism and xenophobia: "how can the Parliament be against racism, yet fund parties that spread it?" members asked [hypocritically].

Austrian Hannes Swoboda, Socialist group leader, raised the issue at the Conference of Presidents and was successful in asking for a full investigation into the 'far-right' Alliance’s commitment to the rights in Article 3(c).

This does not mean that the funding has been blocked, but few expect it to go ahead and there is a planned tightening of the rules for applications after 2012.

Save Marriage from the Coalition of the Wreckers!

Marriage is unique

Throughout history and in virtually all human societies marriage has always been the union of a man and a woman. Marriage reflects the complementary natures of men and women. Although death and divorce may prevent it, the evidence shows that children do best with a married mother and father.

No need to redefine

Civil partnerships already provide all the legal benefits of marriage, so there's no need to redefine marriage. It's not discriminatory to support traditional marriage. Same-sex couples may choose to have a civil partnership but no one has the right to redefine marriage for the rest of us.

Unforeseen consequences

If marriage is redefined, those who believe in traditional marriage will be side-lined. People's careers could be harmed, couples seeking to adopt or foster could be excluded, and schools would inevitably have to teach the new definition to children. If marriage is redefined once, what is to stop it being redefined to allow polygamy?

Speak up

People should not feel pressured to go along with same-sex marriage just because of political 'correctness'. They should be free to express their views. Government has launched a public consultation on proposals to redefine marriage. This provides an opportunity for members of the public to make their views known.

Sign the petition to save marriage here. More than 200,000 already have!

Same-sex 'marriage' paves the way for legalizing polygamy

A growing number of Muslim men (one recent estimate is 20,000) in Britain receive additional welfare payments from the state for each of their polygamous 'wives' and the children of these women, many of whom are not even domiciled in this country. These ethnic aliens, from Asia and Africa, are encouraged to exploit loopholes in English and Scottish law in order to abuse our welfare system.

Government and the 'mainstream' media have tried to keep this scandal quiet.

The current move to legalize same-sex 'marriage' (for which there is little demand amongst homosexuals) is designed to pave the way for the legalization of polygamy in the future. This is seen by the Establishment as a useful stratagem to further their scheme of betraying Britain to creeping Shariatization and ultimately Islamic hegemony.

Joyce must go!

The convicted thug and MP for Falkirk, Eric Joyce, today announced to the House of Commons that he had tendered his resignation from the Labour Party.

However, he intends to continue to draw his salary (and expenses) as an MP for the duration of the parliament.

Joyce has clearly got this the wrong way round. He should remain in the Labour Party, where his behaviour after a few drinks is least likely to be regarded as unusual. However, he should stand down as an MP since he has brought disgrace upon himself, his constituents and parliament.

In Defence of Marriage

At the root of the pretended justification, offered by government for its proposed legalization of so-called same-sex 'marriage', is a misapplication of the concept of equality.

In its perverse desire to equalize not only opportunity but also outcome, as between men and women, as well as between heterosexual and homosexual members of each sex, government is willing to destroy the very thing, namely, the institution of marriage, that it wishes to make accessible to those who are ineligible for it.

Monogamous marriage is a venerable social institution. It is central to the character of our Christian culture and to the stability of society. It fulfills the individual through family life and provides the best milieu for the raising of children. If it is to be so desecrated that it is no longer an exclusive union between one man and one woman, then what is really left of it but the mere name, marriage? It is by means of such a violation that a concept takes leave of itself.

The civil partnership, which homosexuals of either sex are now able to enter into with one another, gives them the same legal rights, vis a vis each other, as apply to the partners in a marriage. Yet strangely, civil partnership, now it is legally recognized, seems to have lost what little appeal it ever had for homosexuals. The numbers entering such an arrangement every year are very small indeed.

The next pot of gold at the end of the rainbow appears to be marriage itself. Just the name. That and the probability of outraging the religious and moral sensibilities of clergy and churchgoers by demanding the right to a ritual in church. None of this futile attempt to usurp the moral order, however, can conceivably compensate for what is lacking, namely normal feelings. It is merely displacement activity designed to attract attention and to shock.

Ultimately, the logic of government's perverse 'equality' drive in the field of social affairs should lead it to ban marriage between members of the opposite sex, except for mixed race marriages, in the name of attaining "an acceptable level of diversity within society". But one step at a time. Marriage has already been undermined by having been made economically disadvantageous. In order further to atomize society, marriage, as traditionally understood, must now be brought into contempt and publicly degraded as an institution.

It is not necessary to be a Roman Catholic, a churchgoer, or even a Christian, in order to find government's proposed wrecking of marriage morally repugnant and to oppose it. God can find work for atheists, agnostics and humanists, too. All that is required, in order to line up on the side of the angels in this battle, is an understanding of the abiding value to ourselves and our society of our tradition, heritage and culture, as well as a healthy distrust of politicians who seek to break what they cannot control.

Church leaders have both the right and the duty to speak out on matters which go to the heart of the Christian way of life. Happily, in this instance, they have given the right lead. This is not to say that they are always right. Far from it. When they are right they have our support, where they are wrong they have our criticism.

It would be foolish indeed of nationalists not to make common cause with those who agree with us on this issue, out of a bigoted anticlericalism or militant secularism. Though the churches err in their dealings with us, as nationalists, we should show them the error of their ways in that truly Christian spirit of tolerance in which they themselves are so signally deficient.

An unjust 'law' will be invalid

Pope weighs into 'gay' [sic, same-sex] marriage row condemning 'powerful, political and cultural currents'

By Steve Doughty

9 March 2012

The Pope yesterday condemned David Cameron’s plan to allow same-sex marriage, calling it an attack on justice.

He said that marriage between a man and a woman must be preserved because it protects parents, children and the whole of society.

Pope Benedict urged Roman Catholics to stand against ‘powerful political and cultural currents seeking to alter the legal definition of marriage’.

The remarks were timed to add Papal authority to the campaign against same-sex marriage launched this week by Roman Catholic leaders in Britain.

A letter in which two archbishops say a new law would undermine the family is to be read to Catholic congregations in England and Wales tomorrow, and Scottish Cardinal Keith O’Brien has strongly attacked the plan.

In the Church of England, both Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and Archbishop of York John Sentamu have opposed it, following the campaigning lead set by former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey.

The stance of church leaders means that Mr Cameron is likely to face determined opposition when he introduces his same-sex marriage scheme in a consultation paper later this month.

The Pope made the Vatican’s view plain in discussions with a group of visiting American bishops.

Discussing the political campaign to change the nature of marriage, Benedict said: ‘The Church’s conscientious effort to resist this pressure calls for a reasoned defence of marriage as a natural institution consisting of a specific communion of persons, essentially rooted in the complementarity of the sexes and oriented to procreation.

‘Sexual differences cannot be dismissed as irrelevant to the definition of marriage.’

The Pope continued: ‘Defending the institution of marriage as a social reality is ultimately a question of justice, since it entails safeguarding the good of the entire human community and the rights of parents and children alike.’

Benedict said there were serious problems caused by cohabitation among couples ‘who seem unaware that it is gravely sinful, not to mention damaging to the stability of society.

‘Let me conclude by recalling that all our efforts in this area are ultimately concerned with the good of children, who have a fundamental right to grow up with a healthy understanding of sexuality and its proper place in human relationships.

‘Children are the greatest treasure and the future of every society: truly caring for them means recognizing our responsibility to teach, defend and live by the moral virtues which are the key to human fulfilment.’

The Pope’s standing in Britain has been high since his visit in 2010, when his charge that Christianity is being pushed out of public life struck a chord with many.

However, in recent years the churches have lost their major political battles with the 'gay' [sic, homosexual] rights lobby.

Five years ago Tony Blair’s government passed a set of Sexual Orientation Regulations, despite a Cabinet rebellion by Roman Catholic ministers and the reluctance of the Prime Minister himself, which made it unlawful for any organisation that offers a public service to refuse it to same-sex couples.

As a result, 11 Roman Catholic adoption agencies have shut down or severed links with the Church because they are no longer allowed to decline to place children with 'gay' [sic, homosexual] or lesbian couples.

Mr Cameron’s ministers have assured the churches that same-sex marriage will be permitted only through civil ceremonies, and churches will not be forced to celebrate 'gay' [sic, homosexual] marriages.

However, Church of England lawyers believe that if same-sex marriage becomes lawful, then under the Sexual Orientation Regulations churches will be compelled to offer weddings to 'gay' [sic, homosexual] couples.

Positive Griffinism: working hard to dehumanize nationalists

Why has Griffin not pulled the plug on the vile attack blog, London Nationalists Chinwag? Presumably he approves of its obscene and degraded contents, or he would at least have publicly denounced it, thereby distancing both himself and the British National Party from it.

By remaining silent on the matter Griffin has connived at its foulness and wallowed like a pig in the excrement which is his natural element. More importantly, he has also brought our party into disrepute and clearly demonstrated that he is utterly unfit to be the leader of decent, upright nationalists. The European 'parliament', on the other hand, is a most fitting feeding stall for him.

Should Griffin try to insult our intelligence (yet again) by pleading ignorance of the Chinwag blog, then he is too stupid to be the leader of the BNP.

The Griffin-approved site, London Nationalists Chinwag, is an example of positive Griffinism: working hard to prove the 'anti-fascists' right in what they say about nationalists.

Muslims raped English girl, court hears

Girl tells Rochdale sex grooming gang trial she woke up to find she was being raped

John Scheerhout

8 March, 2012

A girl has told a trial into alleged sex grooming how she woke to find she was being raped.

The teenager, who was in care at the time, told the court how she and a friend were picked up in Manchester by three men they didn’t know before being taken to Oldham and then a flat in Rochdale.

Once at the flat, the two girls were given kebabs and were joined by four other men before getting drunk on Jack Daniels and vodka.

The girl said she spoke to the men described as the ‘ugly one’, the ‘OK one’, the ‘skinny one’ and the ‘chilled one’.

The prosecution says the man who raped her is Qamar Shahzad, of Tweedale Street, Rochdale. He denies rape at a trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

He is one of 11 men accused of sexually exploiting five girls as young as 13.

During a video interview played to the jury the girl told how they got drunk, smoked cannabis and went to bed at about 3.30am.

She said: "I was trying to sleep. They were coming in and I was pushing them away.

She described how the men asked for sex or ‘jiggy, jiggy’.

The girl told police she woke to find one of the men semi-naked on top of her, raping her.

First, she noticed someone breathing heavily on her neck, she told officers. It was like ‘dog breath’ she said.

She said: "Then I woke up and I screamed and my friend woke up and said basically ‘what do you think you are doing?’"

The girl said the man just ignored her screams.

Long silences punctuated the girl’s interview in which she repeatedly said she was ‘embarrassed’ and did not want to go into details.

She said: "I would rather just forget about it and not go through the detail. It is disgusting."

The girl also described twice being violently raped at a house in Rochdale.

She said the owner, a man she knew as Shah, would grab her neck and slap her face if she tried to stop him kissing her.

She described another man she named as Hamid watching as Shah tried different sexual positions.

She said: "I tried screaming, but he just slapped me. It was gross."

She described another occasion at the same address when Hamid slit his own wrist, causing ‘deep, deep’ cuts, before threatening to slit her throat unless she had sex with him.

The prosecution says that Shah is Liaquat Shah and Hamid is Hamid Safi, both of Kensington Street, Rochdale.

Kabeer Hassan, 24, Abdul Aziz, 41, Abdul Rauf, 43, Mohammed Sajid, 35, Adil Khan, 42, Abdul Qayyum, 43, of Ramsay Street, Rochdale, Mohammed Amin, 44, Qamar Shahzad, 29, Liaquat Shah, 41, and Hamid Safi, 22, are charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16.

They have all pleaded not guilty along with a 59-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons.

He also denies two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Mr Hassan, of Lacrosse Avenue, Oldham, and Mr Shahzad, of Tweedale Street, Rochdale, also deny rape.

Mr Aziz, of Armstrong Hurst Close, Rochdale, denies two counts of rape and one allegation of trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Mr Khan, of Oswald Street, and Mr Rauf, of Darley Road, both in Rochdale, have also pleaded not guilty to trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Mr Sajid, of Jepheys Street, Rochdale, denies trafficking, two counts of rape and one allegation of sexual activity with a child.

Mr Amin, of Falinge Road, Rochdale, denies sexual assault.

Mr Shah and Mr Safi, both of Kensington Street, Rochdale, each denied two counts of rape and Mr Safi has also pleaded not guilty to trafficking.

Forensics blunder 'may endanger convictions'

Private firm LGC Forensics admits sample became so contaminated it could not be offered in evidence

Vikram Dodd and Shiv Malik

guardian.co.uk, Thursday 8 March 2012

Scores of convictions for serious crimes may have to be reviewed after a serious blunder by a leading private forensics firm led to a suspected rapist being acquitted, the Guardian has learned.

The company, LGC Forensics, has admitted that a sample at one of its laboratories became so contaminated it could not be offered in evidence.

The rape case, investigated by Greater Manchester police, collapsed this week with the defendant, Adam Scott, 20, who denied the allegation, being acquitted after prosecutors decided they could no longer rely on the forensic evidence. His alleged victim is said to be devastated.

A senior source said: "Potentially this has national implications. Hundreds of cases will have to be reviewed. We have no idea what the parameters will have to be. It's serious – it's dealing with the credibility of the system."

LGC admitted that the sample tying the defendant to the attack had become contaminated with his DNA. It said: "LGC deeply regrets that forensic evidence was contaminated with the defendant's DNA in one of our laboratories.

"LGC has already identified the cause of this contamination, and has taken steps to ensure that it cannot happen again. Our procedure for tracking, identifying and reporting potential contamination will be immediately reviewed and updated. We are also co-operating fully with Greater Manchester police."

LGC refused to answer questions, such as at which lab the contamination had taken place and what exactly caused the contamination.

The senior source pointed out that the cases of most concern were those resting solely or wholly on forensics.

The credibility of LGC and the integrity of its procedures to guard against contamination was central to the conviction of two men for the murder of Stephen Lawrence in January. Gary Dobson and David Norris were convicted predominantly on the basis of forensic evidence from LGC. The trial judge directed that the jury could not consider any other evidence until they were sure they could rule out contamination, which had been the key argument in the defence case. [Emphasis mine].

The case in Manchester that prompted the forensics alert collapsed on Tuesday.

Steve Heywood, assistant chief constable of Greater Manchester police, said: "On Tuesday we were made aware that a DNA profile provided by LGC Forensics in connection with a sexual assault had been contaminated during the testing process in their laboratories.

"The exact circumstances of how the sample was contaminated at the laboratory are yet to be established but I am determined to discover what has occurred. We will work closely with LGC Forensics, the Home Office and other partners to review the full facts of what has taken place.

"In addition we will be conducting an internal review of some investigations where LGC Forensics has been used in the processing of forensic evidence. At this time there is nothing to suggest any other cases within GMP will be affected."

The CPS said it had had no choice but to drop the rape case after it emerged that the forensic evidence had become contaminated in the LGC lab. "The key and significant evidence in the case was scientific evidence linking the defendant to the incident. We were notified earlier this week by Greater Manchester police of further information they had received that the scientific evidence in the original submission could no longer be relied on.

"We have a continuing duty to review cases as they develop and concluded that in view of this new information the prosecution against the defendant should not continue. We immediately informed the court and the defence and offered no evidence. The defendant was formally acquitted of the offence."

Police forces have turned to private suppliers after the government decided to shut down the Forensic Science Service. Its closure was announced in December 2010 by the home secretary, Theresa May, because the government-owned company had been losing £2m a month and was at risk of going into administration.

A Home Office spokesman said: "DNA evidence is a vital tool for the police which has helped convict thousands of violent and dangerous criminals.

"Forensic science regulator Andrew Rennison has launched an immediate investigation to find out what lessons can be learned from this individual case."

LGC has a reputation for leading the way in cutting-edge science and has had success in cold-case reviews, where seemingly dead-end cases result in convictions after fresh forensic techniques produce new evidence.

Searchlight and the Competition

The new Hope not hate [sic] 'anti-fascist', bi-monthly magazine
It would appear that all is not sweetness and light in the ranks of so-called anti-fascism.

Last month the serial anthology of fiction known as Searchlight magazine failed to appear, under threat of legal action. This month's issue carries one article criticizing censorship of free speech and another, written by convicted thief Gerry Gable, celebrating just such a censorship in the abandonment of the speaking engagement, at London's School of Oriental and African Studies, of a lawyer who had the temerity to defend Holocaust deniers' right of free speech. The reason for the apparent discrepancy in Searchlight's editorial line is, of course, that free speech is fine until it appears to threaten the interests of the Jewish nation, which for some strange reason Holocaust denial is regarded as doing. It then becomes 'a bad thing'.

While there is nothing intrinsically wrong with a Jew standing up for what he (mistakenly) sees as the Jewish national interest, it is hypocritical of that same Jewish nationalist to condemn as 'fascists' those Britons who speak out in support of their own national interest.

Sonia Gable, meanwhile, insinuates that her erstwhile colleagues, who now run the rival Hope not hate magazine, are lazy and not up to the job of exposing the nasty 'fascists' in the thoroughly professional way that has always been the hallmark (cough, cough) of herself and her husband.

"This is the genuine Searchlight, beware of imitations", says Mr Gable. Hmm, he sounds worried.

What do I think of the new magazine? Well, I can only judge it by its on-line version, since Borders went out of business, as I object to paying good money to read anti-English propaganda. However, its comic-style cover seems to match its juvenile contents rather well. Is that Nick Lowles cleaning the windows above the All Nations Cafe? If so, someone should certainly have a word with him about showing due regard for health and safety concerns. After all, if he were to fall out of that window the chances are that he would land on an ethnic alien.

On the political level the Searchlight - Hope not hate split signals the growing power, within the Labour movement, as within society as a whole, of the Muslim interest. What we see is a competition for political influence between rival ethno-religious minorities, both of which are inimical to the shrinking ethnic majority, and both of which cynically denounce as 'fascism' any attempt to defend the interests of the host nation, the English.

A very promising new technology

Underground Coal Gasification in the UK


The United Kingdom is well placed within Europe in having large reserves of indigenous coal both onshore and offshore in the southern North Sea. These reserves have the potential to provide security of future energy supplies long after oil and natural gas are exhausted.

Traditional mining methods however are not suited to working offshore reserves, and development and infrastructure costs of new mines can render the exploitation of landward reserves uneconomical. The concept of gasifying coal underground and bringing the energy to the surface as a gas for subsequent use in heating or power generation has considerable attraction. Underground coal gasification (UCG) has the potential to provide a clean and convenient source of energy from coal seams where traditional mining methods are either impossible or uneconomical.

As a coal-mining operation requiring a licence under the Coal Industry Act 1994, The Coal Authority has a vital interest in UCG.

UCG is the partial in-situ combustion of a deep underground coal seam to produce a gas for use as an energy source. It is achieved by drilling two boreholes from the surface, one to supply oxygen and water/steam, the other to bring the product gas to the surface. This combustible gas can be used for industrial heating, power generation or the manufacture of hydrogen, synthetic natural gas or other chemicals. The gas can be processed to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is passed on to end users, thereby providing a source of clean energy with minimal green house gas emissions.

Government policy is to encourage the development of cleaner coal technologies for application both at home and in overseas markets. The potential for UCG in the UK relates not only to reducing environmental emissions but also to ensuring security of energy supply and maintaining an acceptable level of diversity [?] of energy supply.

The basic feasibility of UCG has been proven in previous trials. Further detailed studies are required to prove the technology of precision drilling process control over sustained periods of operation and to fully evaluate any possible environmental impact on underground aquifers and adjacent strata. One of the practical problems of UCG is that meaningful experiments cannot be carried out in the laboratory, and trials must be undertaken at pilot scale, which is both costly and time consuming.

An EU trial, sponsored in part by the UK's Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has demonstrated the feasibility of UCG at depths typical of European coal. The DTI concluded that the UCG process has potential for UK coal reserves, particularly when considering the large quantities of offshore coal potentially available.

Technology targets for UCG were set in DTI Energy Paper 67 and a programme of studies has taken place with industry to critically assess the commercial feasibility of UCG.

The technology, if successful, has export potential to countries such as China and India where coal reserves considerably exceed oil and gas reserves.


Development of UCG to date

UCG is conceptually very simple but the development of a working system has proved more difficult in practice. The main problems are drilling the boreholes, controlling the reaction within the seam and producing a gas of a consistent and high quality.

The gasification of coal seams in situ was first developed in the former Soviet Union during the 1930's and commercial-scale schemes have been developed since the Second World War with one at least project in Uzbekistan is still operating today.

In the 1950's, Britain embarked on its own long-term trial in shallow coal seams at Newman Spinney, Derbyshire, and although gasification was successful, the National Coal Board later abandoned the project for economic reasons.

US trials in the 1970s proved the value of new technology from the oil and gas industry to control the process. These were followed up in Europe by studies which concluded that the process was technically feasible in the thinner and deeper coal seams of Western Europe.

This led to the European trial of UCG in deep seams, which took place in Spain between 1992 and 1999. The DTI was a part sponsor, alongside the EU and Spanish and Belgium organisations.

The European trial was the first to use in-seam directional drilling at depth to construct the production well and the trial demonstrated that UCG wells in deep seams could be successfully constructed. The encouraging results of the European trial led the DTI to reevaluate UCG as a longer-term option for clean coal exploitation in the UK, as described below.


UCG and the DTI Clean Coal Research & Development Programme

The DTI review of cleaner coal technology, published as Energy Paper 67 in June 1999 examined the potential of UCG and other technologies like coal bed methane in the UK.

While these technologies were far from being considered commercial alternatives to conventional mining, and substantial R & D effort was required, it was accepted that further work on cleaner coal power generation technologies was a priority task.

During the consultation exercise a number of consultees suggested that UCG could offer an alternative way to obtain the energy from coal without mining and would also provide access to the large-scale UK coal resources inaccessible by conventional mining - including the substantial resources under the southern North Sea.

For this reason, and with regard to the total project cost of the order of £15-20 million, it was judged that the UK alone could undertake the next stage of a sub-commercial programme. This would be more expeditious than seeking European partners. If however the tests were successful, partners would be sought for a full-scale semi-commercial UCG trial.

Energy Paper 67 identified a series of technology targets for UCG that would need to be addressed over the next six years. These were:

Improving the accuracy of in-seam drilling

Examining the implications of burning UCG gas in gas turbines

Estimating the landward coal reserves for UCG

Identifying a semi-commercial site

Establishing cost parameters for the process to be competitive

Carrying out a pre-feasibility study of offshore exploitation of UCG

The aim was to achieve these goals, in association with industry, over the next six years.

As part of the programme the Coal Authority became involved in research into UCG and it was the Authority who initiated Phase 1 of the programme which was to identify possible UK trial sites, outline a demonstration programme and review the environmental, utilisation and drilling technologies. However, the Authority was unable to progress beyond Phase 1 because of restrictions of its powers under the 1994 Coal Industry Act and the work was transferred to the DTI.

The development programme still continued through these arrangements, but limited to a series of desk studies.

By mid 2003, the various studies were nearing completion, and the DTI prepared a report, to sum up and publicise the status of the work. This report "Review of the feasibility of Underground Coal Gasification in the UK" was published in October 2004 (DTI/Pub URN 04/1643).

In 2007 certain functions from the DTI, including responsibilities for energy, were merged with the Better Regulation Executive (part of the Cabinet Office) to form the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform; further re-organisation led to the formation of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (www.decc.gov.uk) who now have responsibility for energy matters.


Current Status

There are now signs that current issues relating to green house emissions and global price increases in gas are generating higher levels of interest in UCG and in 2009 and 2010 the Authority received applications for, and granted, some 14 conditional near offshore UCG licences to companies, keen to pursue the technology further in Great Britain. These conditional licences enable prospective operators to secure the rights to the coal while projects are developed but do not permit UCG operations to commence until all other rights and permissions are in place.

The UCG Partnership, now known as the UCG Association, was formed in late 2005 as a non-profit organisation set up to promote UCG technology around the world. The Coal Authority is an associate non-shareholder member of UCG Association and as the licensing body for UCG in Great Britain is only there on a watching and advisory brief with no commercial interest.

Disgraced ex-police sergeant from Urmston facing jail after having sex with 'bi-polar' woman he was sent to help

March 05, 2012

A disgraced police sergeant is facing jail after admitting having sex with a woman he knew had mental health issues when he was supposed to be helping her.

Father-of-two Peter Jee, 37, had been accused of raping the woman, but the charge was dropped on the first day of his trial at Minshull Street Crown Court.

Jee, who resigned from Greater Manchester Police last January, admitted misconduct in a public office, by engaging in sexual activity with a woman he knew to be suffering from mental health problems.

The sexual activity took place at the victim’s home on August 20 2010, after the officer had arrived to deal with a domestic incident.

Jee, of Bents Lane, Urmston, was charged with rape and the misconduct offence following an investigation by GMP’s Professional Standards Branch, managed by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Jee originally denied both offences.

He changed his plea on the misconduct charge at the start of the trial.

The court was told that Jee accepted he heard the words ‘bi-polar’ said in relation to his victim.

Judge Timothy Mort was told that Jee still maintained his innocence over the rape charge.

Mark Ainsworth, prosecuting, said after careful scrutiny of the case, it had been agreed it would not be in the public interest to proceed with the prosecution for rape.

The former officer will be sentenced in May.

He was warned by Judge Mort that he was likely to receive a prison sentence.

Michael Lavery, defending, said the change of plea had come after a ‘number of discussions’ with the Crown over the past few days. The judge allowed an adjournment before sentencing so that specialist reports can be obtained on Jee, who was bailed.

He is subject to strict conditions which prevent him having contact with civilian witnesses involved in the case.

A similar restriction preventing him having contact with police officers involved, was lifted.

GMP refused to comment on the case. [Emphasis mine].

Was this racist vice ring 'protected' by police?

Sex gang [of Muslim men] passed young white [English] girls around THOUSANDS of men, claims impregnated 'teen' who would down vodka to 'feel loud and good'. Girl, 13, tells court she trusted one defendant, 59, 'like my dad'

She tells how she would drink a litre of neat vodka before sex

She 'got phone calls from strangers' asking if she wanted to go 'chilling'

Girl saw 'list of men who owed money' at suspect's home where she knew other girls had been

By Matt Blake

Last updated at 5:25 PM on 6th March 2012

An alleged sex gang was today accused of setting up a abuse ring involving thousands of men with young 'white girls in the middle', a teenager who fell pregnant claimed today.

But one of the alleged victims, 13, told a court that 'no one was raped', saying she thought the men, some of whom were in their late 40s and 50s, were her friends.

She claimed she would sometimes drink a litre of neat vodka before being intimate with the men because it made her feel 'loud and good'.

Speaking about a 59-year-old defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, she said: 'He wouldn't hurt a fly. He was one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

'I trusted him like my dad.'

She told Liverpool Crown Court that she would get phone calls from 'strangers' who would ask her if she wanted to go 'chilling'. She said she agreed and was passed around by different men.

The girl became pregnant by one of 11 men alleged to be involved in a child sex exploitation ring, the court heard.

She made the revelation during an interview with officers about the alleged abuse of under age girls - some as young as 13 - between 2008 and 2009.

During interviews played to a jury at Liverpool Crown Court, the girl told officers she had been in a six-month relationship with a man called Billy who she says made her pregnant.

She said she told him at the time that she was 16 and that she decided to have a termination.

The girl told police she slept with Billy and other men after being taken as far afield as Bradford and Leeds, jurors heard.

The Crown says Billy is Adil Khan, 42, one of 11 men from Rochdale and Oldham who deny sex offences. The girl is one of five teenagers the prosecution say were sexually abused by the men.

The prosecution says a number of men used the girl for sex although she told police she thought they were her friends.

She told officers men would wait until she was sober before they asked for sex.

The girl said she met the men at takeaways in Rochdale and drank vodka upstairs.

Addressing allegations the girls had been abused, she told police: 'They have all consented. No one was raped.'

She described being taken to a flat in Falinge, where she said she had sex with a man called Ray who owned the property.

Photographs of Ray"s children were on the walls and his wife was in Pakistan, the girl said.

She told police she would 'neck' a whole bottle of vodka which made her feel 'loud and good'.

The girl said a number of white girls were brought to the flat and she saw a list of men who owed Ray money for using the flat.

During the hearing, Phillip Boyd, defending one of the 11, questioned whether she was mistaken in identifying his client and asked her about how much she would drink on these occasions.

He said: 'There would be occasions when you would be drinking a litre of vodka at one sitting?'

'Yeah', said the girl, who was giving evidence via a video link.

'Neat vodka?'

'Yeah,' she replied.

The girl, who is now 16, said she was drinking heavily 'three or four times a week'.

Kabeer Hassan, 24, Abdul Aziz, 41, Abdul Rauf, 43, Mohammed Sajid, 35, Adil Khan, 42, Abdul Qayyum, 43, of Ramsay Street, Rochdale, Mohammed Amin, 44, Qamar Shahzad, 29, Liaquat Shah, 41, and Hamid Safi, 22, are charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16.

They have all pleaded not guilty along with a 59-year-old man, who also denies two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation. Mr Hassan, of Lacrosse Avenue, Oldham, and Mr Shahzad, of Tweedale Street, Rochdale, also deny rape.

Muslim gang used alcohol and money to lure English children, jury hears

ON TRIAL: Mohammed Amin denies sexual assault
ON TRIAL: Mohammed Amin denies sexual assault

I saw [English] girl forced to go with [Asian Muslim] men, Rochdale sex grooming trial jury is told

John Scheerhout

2 March, 2012

A girl sobbed as she told a jury how she saw another youngster who was allegedly recruited into a child exploitation ring forced to have sex with a man.

She described how the girl was drinking Jack Daniels with friends at a flat in Rochdale when she saw the alleged victim arrive.

She told the court how the alleged victim was with two men, and a much larger girl.

One of the men, said the witness, was chubby and bald and introduced himself as Car Zero.

Prosecutors say Car Zero was 44-year-old taxi driver Mohammed Amin.

The second man was skinny and offered a bottle of vodka to a girl he wanted to have sex with, according to the witness.

The witness told the jury that the girls said they ‘have sex with Asian guys for money’. She said: "It was like some big achievement. I thought it was disgusting."

The witness told the court the larger girl would not have sex with the men herself but said she would get others to do it for her.

She said: "She was sitting there with a big smirk on her face like it was something to be proud of."

The prosecution say the larger girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, acted with 11 men from Rochdale and Oldham to exploit children as young as 13 for sex in exchange for food, money and alcohol.

The men deny a series of offences at the trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

Giving evidence from behind screens, the witness described how the girl was pestered for 15 minutes to have sex with the skinny man.

The witness said: "He kept saying ‘come one’ and (the larger girl) was saying ‘go on’. She said ‘No, I have got to drink my drink’. You could tell she didn’t want to go. She was scared.
