As tragic as the Paris attacks were, and utterly sharing the pain and anguish felt by the French nation, I couldn’t help wondering what would have happened had the boot been on the other foot and the attacks happened on British soil.
Would we have received the tremendous influx of sympathy and solidarity from a country that quite frankly seizes every opportunity to let us know just how much they actually dislike us?
Would they have projected the Union Jack on to their prominent buildings or superimposed our flag over their Facebook profiles? In all honesty can you really envisage the French footballers raising their voices in a lusty rendition of God Save the Queen at the start of their premier division matches? Mmmm!
Let’s just hope as this awful event fades a little in their memories, the French think again when they decide to prevent our supplies coming through Calais; try just a little harder to control the immigrant problem and not be quite so rude when they realise we are English.
And so, as prophesied, the conflict begins. Belgium, the country that Muslims have bragged will be the first Muslim controlled country in Europe, has finally, in the wake of the French terrorist attacks, decided to do something about it. They are sending troops into the no-go areas these people have been allowed to create; making arrests across the board and generally conveying to these intruders that their alien culture and ideals will not be accepted quite as easily as they have so far envisaged. Good.
I now suggest Britain does exactly the same. With the latest study revealing that one in every five Muslims is an ISIS sympathiser, I think the scale of the problem should finally be coming home to even the most complacent of ostriches and do-gooders who have whimpered us into the position where we now find ourselves.
Send in the army! Root out the suspects and hope that their fellow conspirators take up arms. Bring the whole thing to a head. ‘Martyr’ as many as possible and let us all get back to the tranquillity of our own culture and peaceful existence.
Keep the faith
