Scaremongering in Harrow!

Hindu school at the Teachers Centre, Harrow

Conservative group leader Councillor Hall’s widely reported “veiled opposition to the Hindu school” saying that the traffic situation will be absolute “nightmare” and claiming ‘localised gang and criminal ‘ were vilified as “scaremongering” by the London Assembly Member Councillor Navin Shah in the Asian Voice. The newspaper also reported that “Cllr Susan Hall’s objection, has led to a wide-spread anger amongst the Asians, especially the Hindu community living around Harrow for two to three generations”!

Interesting that Councillor Hall has not expressed any similar concerns about establishing a state secondary school at the same site when the Hindu school moves out later.

Romanian and Bulgarian “influx”

"Councils simply can't cope with an influx of immigrants which will strain our housing lists and distort school class sizes", Express newspaper quoted Councillor Hall.

The newspaper article then described the usual negativity associated with “immigration”.
Mail online did their bit and reported: “Now police fly out to tell Romanians: Don't come to Britain and commit crime!”

During the peak of Councillor Hall’s publicity gathering exercise regarding the “influx”, Mark Amies@Superfast7223 Dec  tweeted and asked: @harrow_council  “does that mean that Harrow is likely to be seeing them come here?” and  batty @batty500 31 Dec tweeted: @harrow_council @Councillorsuzie  “when the legal & tax paying immigrants arrive & get attacked due to your spin you'll have blood on ur hands”.

Then came the drop scene as no evidence of the claimed  “influx” could be found – big disappointment though the newspaper cuttings and recorded interviews could be passed on to generations as a ‘record of achievements’!

Sad that opportunists fail to understand that with a public position come the sense of responsibility and the public now has no real appetite for Enoch Powell ideology. 1/2014
