Product Description

Product Description

Saturday June 24th, 1989, the day a Muslim community found its voice and flexed its muscles. The day, according to author and journalist Danny Lockwood, that life in the former Yorkshire mill town of Dewsbury changed forever. His hard-hitting account of the massive cultural upheavals over the subsequent 20-plus years describe how the liberal politics of appeasement by government and law enforcement agencies alike, have left two communities further apart than ever. From blood-spattered heroin dens, to a fierce libel battle and London trial with a Muslim MP, the book lifts the lid on the real effects – and victims – of 'multi-culturalism'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Asymmetry under the Law 23 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I suppose three things appal me the most in the story which Danny Lockwood tells of his hometown of Dewsbury. One is the determination of muslim immigrants from the Indian Subcontinent (but overwhelmingly from Pakistan), to escape to the United Kingdom, but then faithfully to recreate, in-breeding and all, the horrors of Pakistan. Another is the hypocrisy of muslims, who claim that "western" behaviour offends their muslim "morality", but who get rich on the heroin trade, who carry out "drive-by" shootings and who generally indulge in casual and extreme violence; they also recruit extensively among those in prison, already convicted of criminal behaviour, and in no position, therefore, to lecture anyone else on proper behaviour (Lockwood mentions Robert Reid, who tried to bring down a packed airliner with explosives in his shoe, but fails to emphasize where he was recruited).

The third thing is the bizarre connivance of the authorities, especially the local council and the police, in all of this. Danny Lockwood is fair-minded (excessively so, I believe), acknowledging that the behaviour of indigenous British inhabitants of Dewsbury owes a lot to be desired, but largely toning down the blatant fact that the extreme criminality of the muslims (drug wars, drive-by shootings, beatings, sieges of property, not to mention the "traditional", uniquely muslim crimes, such as so-called "honour killings") is in no way provoked by native English lawlessness, but is more immoral, more criminal, more violent and more murderous. The attitude of the local police and local government has almost invariably been that, regardless of the provocation, vociferous complaints will rebound on complainants, far sooner than they will land muslim criminals in court.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good (sad) read 15 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Where to start? And where`s the end…?As my brother, for Dewsbury read Burnley, Blackburn, Oldham,Rochdale, Halifax, Leicester, Derby, and of course Bradford, amongst others.....Where's the end? As Mick so poignantly observed, this battle is already lost. A good read, though perhaps a chapter or 2 too long. You made your point well Danny, no need to go on.

5.0 out of 5 stars weird this is 20 years old. 18 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you know anything about how jobbing hacks ,, I think, it has authenticity. He admits his major miss-judgements and errors as well. He writes about the total corruption and debasement of all that once was good, coming to your town now.

I don't know the details and it is years ago, so the islamification must be complete by now in Dewsbury, or whatever it has been renamed, Dewsburistan etc
The interesting point is in the book, where he actually stands up to the thuggery, (in a meeting), and they actually back off.
Instead the 'authorities' continual redrawing of a line in the sand... and another line further back, and further back...and....
The foreign invasion is largely complete anyway, the occupation complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Struck a Personal Chord 20 April 2012
By Andy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being from a southern Liberal Democrat -thoroughly English- town, and growing up through the Labour party education system (1997-2006) and the BBC's 'education' system, I used to uphold the orthodox left-wing perspective so commonly held among young people my age. In fact, as an adolescent, I would go so far as to say that I had been lead to believe that minority cultures were constantly victimized, and that the white British community should do their best to respect these cultures. I also considered those who criticized these cultures to be unfair and 'racist'. It was not until I moved to Bradford and witnessed first hand the cultural divide that my opinions changed. I was completely taken aback by the utter division, lack of integration, and outright resentment between the two communities; something which is portrayed so well in this book. The local newspapers rarely report anything honestly here. After living for a year (as the only English-English person) on a street where, despite the heart-warming efforts of some neighbours, intimidation, threats and other minor crimes targeted at my person were a weekly occurrence, I decided it was best to move away to an area where people were more like me, despite still feeling an amount of residual liberal guilt for admitting it. This book excellently documents many similar experiences to which I have witnessed first hand. Before you dismiss it as racist propaganda, or inflammatory hate-speech, it is definitely worth reading to get an insight into the opinions of the unheard English community, who live on what is, essentially, a cultural front. It also details exactly what sort of things go on in places like these. You honestly have to live up here to believe it. Hopefully, if you read this book you will be able to prevent it from happening in your town or city.

Baroness Warsi and her ilk get their comeuppance in this no holds barred knock about expose of every thing that is going wrong with Britain as a result of liberal lefties and Islamists in an unholy alliance against democracy, honesty, decency and what is left of community in post industrial Britain.
