STOP THE RACIST GROUP

2007 Local Elections
The Racist groups are now poised for a real political breakthrough in the 2007 in our area, just like London. The local elections also show that once the racist win a council seats. It takes longer to defeat them and makes it easier for them to gain more councillors.
The real target for us now is Newark & Sherwood District Council Elections 3rd May 2007.
Racism must not be allowed to flourish
Letís stand up for respect, dignity and diversity
Preventing racism groups from gaining councillors in the first place is crucial.
The racism is now making a serious mark on the political landscape in the East Midlands. They intend to contest a record number of seats in next Mayís elections 2007 and we will need more members to come forward as potential candidates and activists. Now is the time to get involved, be a part of history and help stop them being elected in Nottinghamshire.
Racism must not be allowed to flourish. The message must be received and understood, in every corner of our society, in our streets and prisons, in the services, in the workplace, on public transport, in hospitals, public houses and clubs, that racism is evil. It cannot co-exist with fairness and justice. It is incompatible with democratic civilisation.
Racist politics are very damaging. The party exacerbates the social problems we already have, and causes new problemsÖ.Its appeal is insidious, divisive and dangerousÖ. I do not think Christians should be silent or inactive.
I encourages people to vote in local elections in 2007. I urge people not to vote for candidates who promote racist policies.
We should practise and promote racial justice and inclusion and reject any political party that attempts to stir up racial and religious hatred and fear or asylum seekers.
We should be affected by the words of hate, these extremists will be bad for Newark & FOR Nottinghamshire. I give my trust in the voters innext years Newark-Sherwood District Council and Parish Elections May 2007.
Bracing for backlash as voters give their verdict in 2007 around Newark-Sherwood.
In councils across the country the racists are sensing a breakthrough.
Migration from around the World & Eastern Europe to Newark area, Which has been good. We should not be frightened and most not ignore the hate message which will be dangerous for the Newark area if they put up candidates in 2007.
Voters are being tempted & feel Councillors over many years have not been listening to their concerns.
Elections next year will be very difficult .
The political class as a whole is often frightened of engaging in the very difficult issues of race andÖ then exploits that and try and create the message of Racial hate. The reality which is that we need to promote its achievements these last few years we should be saying thanks for helping in the many factories around the Newark area.
In a democracy we should have all opinions. We should debate whether mass immigration has been good thing for Newark.
NEWARK is thriving thanks to the many that come to our area to work.
If we are going to counter them we need to go out & engage in a very direct way with all our voters IN 2007 Elections. I WILL be the first to stand up to them letís stop the breakthrough in NEWARK Area.
Why should we panic, just turnout & vote in our 2007 Council Elections.
Support for the racist is cause for concern has gone up since then as growing disillusionment with the mainstream parties. What is happening, however, is that people are now more prepared to state their support publicly.
People should not be fooled by the racist and their racist agenda.
They realise that they can only hope to grow by presenting a more respectable and moderate image of themselves. For this they need the media. The racise will abuse, manipulate and lie in order to get a their message across.
Letís Stop the hate from Racist groups
These groups are moving into our Newark & AROUND the Country for next years Council Elections.
Polish migrants find a welcome to the NEWARK area.
A lot of Poles are attracted to the Newark area because they donít want to live in the big cities, where they donít feel so welcome.
The Poles are also helping boost the local economy.
Many have found work in the factories & Residential homes.
Without foreign workers, Newark could not grow. Polish people have been happy with the help of English lessons, there is a willingness to accept the foreign workers.
Polish and other Eastern Europeans on constructions sites. They are just the same as us, except maybe most of them are willing to work harder.
The Poles are also helping boost the local economy.
Many leading food producer and probably the biggest recruiter of foreign workers in the Newark area. They have started recruiting foreign workers about last few years because the skills shortness just didnít exist in the Newark area. Without foreign workers, Newark could not grow, THANKS to them.

I can't possibly see how up and coming nationalist political parties can possibly be so damaging as the Labout Party has been. Declaring war on Iraq based on a bag of lies half of them made up by the Prime Minister himself.
If I have the chance I shall certainly vote for a nationalist party.
BTW I hear there is a brand new party that has just started up in Birmingham, the New Nationalist Party.

Not quite sure why the moderators keep pulling this. Let me try it one more time, but leave the reader to fill in a few more blanks.

An impressive and heart-felt call to arms, I'm sure you will agree.

Until you put the quote into your favourite search engine and find that it was lifted (with minor editing) from a 1999 judgement by Lord Justice Rose.

Such attempts to pass other peoples' prose off as one's own is called plagiarism. If the text is copyright (as, for example, in a published judgement), then it is illegal.

Please note that there is nothing libellous in this post: anyone who wants can check for themselves and see that Cllr Goff is a plagiarist. Since he signs his posts with his elected office, and presumably makes such stirring posts to try and bolster his chances of re-election, his electorate surely have the right to know what kind of man he really is.

Absolutely correct. It only serves to create divisions by harping on and on.

Especially since this whole thread was started by some unimaginative excuse for a local politician who wasn't even capable of making his own argument for why racism is evil, and simply stole somebody else's words.

And it also sounds as if he is worried that someone will 'steal' his seat;)
