TERESA MAY: YOU SHOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF

By Pete Moore On May 9th, 2012

The Home Secretary has barred an American self-defence expert from entering the United Kingdom, where he planned to attend a self-defence seminar. Apparently his presence in the UK “would not be conducive to the public good.”

Let’s be clear: it’s not him that the Establishment fears but his skills and the self-reliance they represent. When the peons are helpless they must reach out for the State.

(In other news, more than 200 foreign war crimes suspects are living in the UK).

  1. The drone Home Secretary is only thinking of your safety?

  2. How comes it that we can so easily ban an American from a friendly country who wants to teach self defence; but after spending £3,000,000 and counting, still cannot rid ourselves of a man who hates us and would happily dance on our graves??
    Just one of the reasons I hold our politicians in such contempt.

  3. He teaches self-defence techniques, which according to his own website, are designed to inflict “crippling pain” to an attacker, and claims violence is “your ultimate survival tool”.

  4. She still refuses to let Michael Savage in. What the hell he was supposed to have done, – apart from having an ‘overactive mouth’, – is equally a mystery.

    Don’t we teach similar tactics to our military? – if we don’t, perhaps we should, or perhaps it is for similar reasons to our overall ban on firearms, that the politicians fear we might use such techniques against them…

  5. “and claims violence is “your ultimate survival tool”.

    So?
    He’s taught the extremists, and now he’s gonna teach us. 🙂

    Your law and tradition are being employed in a spirit of extreme bad faith by politicians, lawyers and by the human rights industry.

    Nothing but evil can come of this.

    Your right to self defense trumps all law.

  7. Phantom,

    ‘in a spirit of extreme bad faith ‘

    That sounds quite apt, and just about sums up the political scene here in the UK.

    Nobody trusts, indeed they are unable to trust, any of the institutions of governance to perform as usual or as expected. This has even reached the local level, where representatives are usually known by sight if not by contact. Mediocrity of performance is the order of the day, and excuse and faux apology the only price of failure.

    Sad to say ‘we are no longer a nation of ‘honest brokers’…

  8. Ernest,
    you may rest assured that,

    “Lessons have been learnt.”
    We will probably forget them tomorrow, but tomorrow is another day. Now leave me alone”

  9. Lets let these f**** spell out what, exactly, they have learned

  10. Ernest Young –

    Michael Savage’s banning was a political decision which happened a week or so after a bunch of muslims had been banned.

    Through a Freedom of Information application, he got hold of some Home Office documents which said that whitey/some conservatives (can’t remember the exact phrase) need to be banned to balance out the list of muslims.

    Michael Savage happened to be boarding a flight to London soon after and so found himself banned. That Teresa May upholds the obviously absurd and political decision is an even greater crime than the original banning.

    In your 5.15pm you say “we are no longer a nation of ‘honest brokers”. This is true. The value of being seen as an honest country, with the sure rule of law, is incalculable. The flip side is that once such a reputation is lost it’s just about impossible to regain.

  11. Enest,
    I would imagine the government will be wanting to play down any manifestations of social disharmony of a racial nature.

    but the cynicism remains..

    I don’t believe that Savage had plans to go to London at all. I’ve heard him say this a number of times on air, that he was dumbfounded to find himself banned from visiting a country whose values he very much admired, when he had no plans to go there.

    It was an extremely gratuitous slap, and your larger point I believe is correct.

  13. Savage has never sought entry to the UK nor did he have any plans to visit. London Mayor Boris Johnson was staggered by Jacqui Smith’s decision and has spoken out in defence of the American DJ: “It is shocking that not a single MP has stood up to defend free speech”.
    Michael Savage, who until recently was relatively unknown in the UK, hosts The Savage Nation, which is the third most popular show in America.

    From Savage’s PR Agency or one of them ( though Pete’s larger comment is of course accurate )

  14. Righto.

    I might have had our self-defence fella in mind up top, who found out he was banned when he tried to board a flight to London.

  15. A clp from Savages website on the topic of his ban:-

    ‘Savage has documented his battle over the ban in his book “Banned in Britain,” which includes official correspondence, released under the U.K.’s freedom-of-information law, that reveals a decision was made at the highest level of government to use his name to provide “balance” to a “least wanted” list dominated by Muslim extremists.”

    So Pete, – it looks as though your suspicions were correct. His ban was to add ‘balance’ to list of undesirables.

  16. She should have banned a few Quakers and Tea Party guys, which would have made for even more balance.

  17. “The Home Secretary has barred an American self-defence expert from entering the United Kingdom, where he planned to attend a self-defence seminar. Apparently his presence in the UK “would not be conducive to the public good.”

    The (I assume) Liberal Progressive babe can stop any person she wants coming to England.
