STEEL CITY VALUES…

By David Vance On May 17th, 2018

The English city of Sheffield has a proud history.

In the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Known as the Steel City, many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population in the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1843, becoming the City of Sheffield in 1893. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in these industries in the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area.

So, here is a glimpse of Sheffield 2018.

Breibart reports;

“Sheffield’s new lord mayor Magid Magid, who entered politics to “fight xenophobia”, has declared the British monarchy “outdated” and said he would refuse to toast to the Queen.

“I hope by the fact I am a black, Muslim immigrant – everything the Daily Mail probably hates – people will look and say ‘In Sheffield we’re proud of doing things differently and celebrating our differences’,” he told The Star on Tuesday.

At 28, Magid became the city’s youngest ever lord mayor when he took on the ceremonial role on Wednesday, having moved to Sheffield from Somalia with his family when he was five years old to “look for a better life”.

Sheffield has embraces Magid and his values. What could possibly go wrong with THAT?

  1. “I hope by the fact I am a black, Muslim immigrant – everything the Daily Mail probably hates –

    That sounds suspiciously like Mr perpetually angry James O’Brien.

  2. “I hope by the fact I am a black, Muslim immigrant – everything the Daily Mail probably hates – people will look and say ‘In Sheffield we’re proud of doing things differently and celebrating our differences’,”

    He’s probably right on both counts.

    Nothing, I suspect.

  3. Isn’t Rotherham part of Sheffield?.

    Just asking.

    😏

  4. No, I don’t think it is but I’m open to correction.

  5. South Yorkshire is a metropolitan county in England. It is the southernmost county in the Yorkshire and the Humber region and had a population of 1.34 million in 2011. It has an area of 1,552 square kilometres (599 sq mi) and consists of four metropolitan boroughs, Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.

    Let’s just hope, Sheffield doesn’t suffer the same inevitable rate.

  6. *fate

  7. Rotherham is part of South Yorkshire, as is Sheffield. So no, Sheffield isn’t part of Rotherham.

    Your tenacity in trying to link both together – however tenuous it might be, is admirable.

  8. Paul.

    Time.. it’s just a matter of time.

  9. Yeah, okay then H.

  10. More importantly…

    Is he Wednesday or United?

    What does he think of the new Arctic Monkeys album?

    Does he know Michael Palin?

  11. Magnificent Reg.

  12. What does he think of the new Arctic Monkeys album?

    Does he know Michael Palin?

    Who, and who?.

  13. Sheffield..

    Lock up your daughter’s.

    The favourite personal pets of the left, are on the move.

  14. Magid entered politics to fight the gammons in Ukip
    Magid went on to study marine biology at Hull University

    The august institution Urban Dictionary defines zaddy as “the slang term for a really ‘handsome’ guy who is very appealing and looks really fashionable. He has to have swag and sex appeal and look sexy and attractive.” They do not include the definitions that they must hold a position of power, have a great backstory and wear Doc Martens in formal settings but even without them, I would like to inform you that Sheffield’s new Lord Mayor is the dictionary definition of a complete and utter zaddy.

    congratulations Magid quite an achievement becoming Mayor

  15. Magid entered politics to fight the gammons in Ukip

    That all smells a bit fishy?.

    😏

  16. The people have spoken, the bastards.

    You really don’t know who Michael Palin is H? I find that incredibly hard to believe.

  17. This happens because blacks and browns vote for their own. This is how we’re being dispossessed of our homelands by primitive invaders.

    They’re not British. They don’t belong here. They’ll have to go back to where they belong.

  18. petem we’re not all bigoted like you, he’s the Mayor he made it, its terrific news.
    i wish you could see how ignorant is your comment above.
    sorta thing you’d expect from an ill-bred feral nazi thug
    i’m so glad I’m not you .. keep the low IQ comments up though
    they just make me laugh even harder .. there is no way you have a degree, not even o’levels pal

  19. paul dya out petem could be the next radio shock-jock
    petem I’d advise you to give up your job and go full-time
    ghastly prejudice on display here, give the guy a chance FFS *sighs*

  20. They are Brits Pete and they don’t ‘have to go back to where they belong’

    ‘The greatest gift to an undeserving world’ made that possible.

  21. It first has to be noted that Sheffield Lord Mayor is a purely ceremonial position. It has no authority over anything. It’s symbolic (so the symbolism is arguably the only thing that is actually important).

    I actually know Magid, he was President of Hull Union when I was a student there. I vaguely knew in the back of my mind that he was a refugee but you wouldn’t have known it to speak to the guy, as he sounds pretty English.

    Truth be told if I was to give an idea of what he was I’d say he’s a sound fella, great laugh, but not the most competent in the world either. So kind of perfect for an ambassadorial, purely ceremonial position.

    “Isn’t Rotherham part of Sheffield?.”

    No. Strangely enough Rotherham is part of Rotherham.

  22. indeed seamus , objections to him can only be true rascism at it ugliest
    there’s good and bad in everyone, and just because we have a problem with extremists doesn’t give anyone the right to viciously go after an entire class of people . ugly stuff on display here.

  23. “Sheffield’s new lord mayor Magid Magid, who entered politics to “fight xenophobia”

    The very fact that he has achieved the positions of Lord Mayor either suggests that he has succeed in his mission or, there was never ever xenophobia in the first place.

    Either way, congratulations to him.

  24. //When I was 19 I wanted to climb Kilimanjaro, so I packed what I needed, went to the local town and found someone to climb it with me.

    “I guess that’s how I like to do things. I like to look for solutions to barriers, and being courageous and brave is part of being able to do that.”//

    Just a bit more ego and he could run for POTUS.

  25. why trash him Noel ?

  26. How is Noel trashing him ? Gently mocking his boastfulness yes but hardly trashing him. Anyone who proclaims there own “bravery and courageous” is asking to be ribbed.

  27. and just because we have a problem with extremists doesn’t give anyone the right to viciously go after an entire class of people . ugly stuff on display here.

    Unless they are middle class, middle aged white men.

    😏

  28. //why trash him Noel ?//

    Jude, because this is a place where “politicians” get trashed, and that comment and the photo of him in Paul’s link squatting up on a pillar like a post-modern gargoyle simply radiate self-indulgence and vanity.

    Anyone providing a public service should show some respect for the office they hold.

  29. This guy from Somalia turned up in the UK because his mum wanted to “look for a better life”. Why is it the responsibility of Britons to provide these Somalis with a ‘better life’? They have their own lands and country and they should make their own lives better. If they can’t, they don’t have the right to wander into my country and bring their 3rd-worldist uselessness with them.

    This ‘diversity’ thing – what are the parameters? For example, the UK is now about 20% non-white which, according to jude’s cronies, is 20% diversity. This means that full diversity is reached when there are no whites – and ‘diversity’ according to ‘respectable’ politics, is a good thing.

    I know where there is 100% diversity – Africa! All those who favour diversity for white countries should return to Wakanda.

    For the UK, the demographic trends are disastrous and won’t be avoided unless those targeted for destruction in their own country wake up. The problem is that most white Britons won’t believe the threat until they are an actual minority.

    Jude.

    You need professional help.

    Just for the record.

  35. Jesus Christ lads, does it have to be empty, infantile insults all the time?

    Try commenting on the actual subject occasionally. Failing that just get a room or something.

  36. Jesus Christ lads, does it have to be empty, infantile insults all the time?

    Precisely.

  37. Pete Moore

    Sheffield has embraces Magid and his values. What could possibly go wrong with THAT?

    So despite plenty of dodgy things in Donald Trump’s past, you stated we should give him a chance, and see how he gets on as president. (A statement I happen to agree with.)
    So how come Magid doesn’t get the same treatment?

  38. So how come Magid doesn’t get the same treatment?

    This should answer your question Dave:

    They’re not British. They don’t belong here. They’ll have to go back to where they belong.

    Any Mayor who wears Docs is okay with me.

  39. It’s David’s post, Dave.

    But as regards the endless series of volte-face we’ve see since Trump entered the WH, you are of coure right. As far as I’m concerned, it simply means you can never take these people seriously again on any subject. Apart from food etc, maybe.

  40. Paul McMahon.

    This should answer your question Dave:

    They’re not British. They don’t belong here. They’ll have to go back to where they belong.

    I know the answer really Paul, I just like to point out Pete’s breathtaking hypocrisy. Mind you, I can’t point it all out, that would be a full time job.

  41. Noel,

    It’s David’s post, Dave.

    Thanks for pointing that out Noel. Apologies Pete. Although to be fair, I’m sure you’ll agree with David’s post 100%. So my question to you still stands.

    But as regards the endless series of volte-face we’ve see since Trump entered the WH, you are of coure right. As far as I’m concerned, it simply means you can never take these people seriously again on any subject. Apart from food etc, maybe.

    Absolutely spot on.
