Recent Licensing - Prosecutions in Birmingham. Every single taxi offence is by South Asians, mostly Pakistanis

Taxi driver Habib Ahmed (left) and Rangzieb Ahmed, who were convicted in December 2008 at Manchester Crown Court of being members of al-Qaeda.

Habib was caught in possession of two diaries which had details of top al Qaeda operatives written in invisible ink - described in court as a terrorist's contact book. Daily Mail

The information below illustrates how habitually dishonest and corrupt the Asian community in Birmingham (especially the Pakistani community) is.

And these people are becoming councillors in the city of Birmingham!

Diane Abbott (anti white Socialist) gets torn apart on 'This week'

Left: Anti white racist, and socialist hypocrite Diane Abbott.

She is so proud of her black identity she decided to change her hair to the European style. Some oestrogen injections might be a good idea too Diane.

Diane Abbott is a despicable creature, MP for Hackney she openly concentrates on black constituents, while regularly insulting the memory of the great 'dead white men' who made this country a world leader during the Victorian period.

She berates white people, and constantly plays down black crime in London, while simultaneously talking up the odd black kid who manages to scrape a few A levels.

Unusually Andrew Neil (this week host) abandons his p.c routine and grills Diane Abbott on the comments she has made in recent months.

Two men in hospital after shootings in Lozells and Handsworth Wood

Left: This picture was taken after a shooting on Nursery Road, Lozells in 2008. Here

Left:Raleigh Close, Handsworth shooting in 2008. Here

Two more shootings in multicultural areas of Birmingham. It is a well known fact that in Birmingham there are certain areas which are unsafe. You simply do not go there after dark, especially if you are white!

It is tragic that certain areas of Birmingham have become third world ghettos.

What is even more sad is the third world immigrants are spreading out, thanks to the council giving them housing in the few white areas left in Birmingham.

Places such as Northfield, Frankly, and Kings Norton are currently majority white.

It is no coincidence therefore that these areas have ZERO gun crime. Petty crime does go on but it is safe to walk the streets at night.

This situation is not forecast to be the case in 10 - 15 years however, as the few remaining areas in the South of the city are incrementally colonized by Africans, second/third generation Jamaicans, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis.

Vote BNP to ensure a voice for the British people who are being displaced in their own cities.

The Birmingham Mail omits the race of the wanted gun men.

The Birmingham Mail reports Two men were in hospital this morning after being shot in separate incidents less than two miles apart in Birmingham.

A 20-year-old man was blasted in the stomach after a gunman opened fire outside Tennessee Fried Chicken on Villa Road in Lozells at 11pm on Thursday night.

Just six minutes later, a 32-year-old was shot in the groin at Bramley Drive, Handsworth Wood.

Both men were said to be in a stable condition in hospital where they are being treated for their injuries.

Police said it was not yet clear whether the two shootings were linked.

The incident comes less than a fortnight after four people were shot at an urban music event being held at Digbeth’s Custard Factory complex.

And residents reported hearing six shots in Estone Walk, Aston, on Monday night.

An area was sealed off on Villa Road at the junction with Hamstead Road while a forensic examination took place.

West Midlands Immigrant workers at council are sacked

More proof that the British National Party are speaking the truth, when they say, indigenous people are being pushed to the back of the line when it comes to jobs.

Even illegal immigrants can get work before a British Person.

The Express and Star reports Six immigrants have been given the sack after being caught working illegally at Wolverhampton City Council, it was revealed today.

In total 16 foreign staff were at Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Walsall and Staffordshire councils, despite not having permission to work in the UK.

Wolverhampton City Council employed a 37-year-old South African computer operator, a bin collector, 36, a clerical assistant, 43, a Zimbabwean specialist support worker, 28, a Zimbabwean care assistant, 30, and a cleaner, 33.

All were either dismissed or resigned once disciplinary proceedings were launched.

It also emerged today a Jamaican social care worker at Staffordshire County Council was sacked for supplying a fake work permit.

Councillor Wendy Thompson, Wolverhampton’s Tory finance chief, said: “It is inexcusable that in one of the worst unemployment areas in the country, people without the right to work here were given jobs without the proper checks.”

She said most workers were employed prior to 2008, when Labour was in charge. At Birmingham, six illegal workers were sacked and three others at Walsall.

Fiona McEvoy, of West Midlands TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “It’s astounding councils have been so lax and allowed these people to slip through the net.”

Another British person dead after being treated by a third world trained doctor

As the 'MSM' and liberal 'talking heads' continue to preach to us 'the NHS would collapse without non white doctors', another British person is dead, thanks to the incompetence of a third world trained, immigrant practitioner.

There have been at least two serious cases in Great Barr alone in the last two years. Think carefully about the G.P you use, especially for elderly relatives who might not survive the mal-practice which is so common amongst third world, non white doctors in England.

The Sunday Mercury reports A bungling Midland doctor has been struck off after telling a seriously ill patient that he was just suffering from alcohol withdrawal – hours before he died from pneumonia.

Madumita Mitra made the wrong diagnosis during a house call in Great Barr, Birmingham.

The male patient had tell-tale signs of pneumonia including a painful cough and shortness of breath. But instead of sending him to hospital, the medic diagnosed alcohol withdrawal.

The patient died three hours later.

Last week Dr Mitra, who qualified as a medic in India in 1991, was hauled before the General Medical Council (GMC) to face misconduct charges.

The panel ruled that her actions were so serious they had no choice but to remove her name from the medical register.

“You made serious departures from the relevant professional standards,” said panel chairman Professor Stephen Miller.

“You did serious harm to the patient through clinical misconduct.

“As a result, there would be a continuing risk to patients if you were to resume practise.

“You have shown persistent lack of insight into the seriousness of your actions and their consequences. Read more

It seems the practice is still open for business should any great Barr residents need treatment... Location & Contact Details

The same doctors surgery was involved in 'a catalouge of failures' in 2005. It appears they moved after a G.P, Dr Bishnu Deo Narayan Singh who worked at K T Prasad, had restrictions imposed on him by the GMC (General Medical Council).

Dr Prasad K T
6 Dyas Road, Great Barr, Birmingham, B448SF

This is Sutton Coldfield reported in 2008 A general practitioner in Great Barr committed a 'catalogue of failures' and has had conditions imposed on his doctor's registration, following a fitness to practise hearing last month.

Dr Bishnu Deo Narayan Singh, practising at Dr Kumar Prasad & Partners surgery in Dyas Road, has had 17 restrictions applied after complaints were made about advice given at an out-of-hours service in Warwickshire.

The GP in one incident falsely recorded his history taking. In several others he failed to take an adequate medical history from his patients and was then unable to make a safe diagnosis.

The General Medical Council said that during seven calls from December 2004 to April 2005, Dr Singh's actions were 'inappropriate, not in the best interests of patients and below the standards of a reasonably competent GP'.

The council had received a complaint from Warwickshire Primary Care Trust on October 10 2006 following a review of calls from the service.

They found that on Boxing Day 2004, Dr Singh gave advice without asking questions. In April 2005 he did not inquire about a pregnant woman's history or offer a home visit.

The GP was said to have treated a patient's relative 'discourteously' in February 2005.

Conditions imposed include that he must no longer work as a locum, undertake any out-of-hours work or on-call duties.

The GMC fitness to practice panel chairperson told Dr Singh: "The matters found proved against you in relation to your work in the out of hours service constitute a catalogue of failures on your part.

"The multiple complaints amount to serious failures on your part to meet many of the fundamental principles and standards of professional conduct as set out in Good Medical Practice." Read more

Birmingham terror camera's to be switched off and covered up after pressure from Muslims

\ Left: Sparkbrook residents. Although mostly a Pakistani area, Somali's have arrived in large numbers in recent years.

The Muslim lobby in Birmingham seems to have won a victory by getting new camera's to be disabled and covered up. Even though there have been 11 convictions for terrorist-related activity in Sparkbrook and Washwood Heath since 2007.

The very first Al Qaeda terrorist arrested in the UK was Moinul Abedin, from Sparkbrook, convicted of bomb making and jailed for 20 years in 2002.

In spite of these facts, muslim councilors such as Salma Yaqoob and Ayoub Khan have been joined by Labour's Roger Godsiff (Hall Green,) in condemning the camera's.

The Birmingham Labour Party is virtually a Muslim mouthpiece with a few white candidates who have sold out the indigenous population.

Roger Godsiff meets with Syrian President Bashir al Assad on the recent visit to Syria organised by the Syrian Society April 2009

The BBC reports A surveillance operation in parts of Birmingham with large Muslim populations has been halted after it was revealed the move was linked to counter terrorism.

Some out of 218 cameras, mainly in the Washwood Heath and Sparkbrook districts, will be covered with bags.

They were part of the Project Champion scheme, paid for from a Home Office counter terrorism fund.

But officials behind the project said it would have deterred various crimes.

Steve Jolly, one of those who first began campaigning about the cameras, said people had been "misled".

He said: "Now the truth is out, there's a lot of anger.

"Certain communities have been ring-fenced and saturated with cameras, making it impossible for you to get in or out without being tracked.

"What's happening here is the government is spying on its citizens covertly in some cases, without their knowledge or consent, and it's a gross invasion of privacy and civil liberties."

Ayoub Khan, from the council, said the public's views were "important"

Mr Jolly described the latest developments as "a victory" and "a start" but added: "It's not the conclusion, though.

"The cameras are already in now. There's going to be a lot of reluctance to have them taken away."

A total of 218 cameras - some of them hidden - were put up in various locations across the areas.

Of those, 106 were Automatic Number Plate Recognition devices which were able to record car registrations as they moved around the areas.

In a statement in April, the Safer Birmingham Project (SBP) said it had received £3m from the Home Office to improve community safety and reduce crime in the Washwood Heath and Sparkbrook wards. Read more

BBC staff experience 'cultural enrichment' in South Africa

Left: Multicult supporter and 'Big question' presenter Nicky Campbell.

BBC staff and presenters are constantly telling us how great it is being 'enriched' by third world immigrants, and that multiculturalism has made Britain a great place to live.

At the same time White British people are being robbed, raped, and killed in increasing numbers by third world immigrants and their descendants.

Now these hypocrites know what it is like to be a minority in a hostile environment.

Mirror news reports

Two BBC staff suffered a terrifying mugging at gunpoint at the World Cup.

The Radio 5 Live breakfast show crew feared for their lives as recording equipment and personal items were taken. The duo, who were followed and cornered by at least two gunmen, handed over belongings and escaped injury, but were "shaken and in tears".

Tuesday's robbery took place in South Africa's largest city, Johannesburg.

A Beeb source said: "It was incredibly traumatic. They feared for their lives."

In a separate incident, breakfast presenter Nicky Campbell had his wallet stolen in South Africa yesterday. Article

Bundesbank board member says Migrants 'make Germany dumb'

Left: A book about West Africans in Hamburg “Wurzeln in zwei Welten - Westafrikanische Migranten und Migrantinnen in Hamburg” (Roots in Two Worlds - West African Migrants in Hamburg).

The Daily Mail reports on comments made by a board member of Germany's central bank. Is this the beginning of open debate in Germany re: immigration?

Let's hope so, for if they can do away with political correctness once and for all, even after the intense brainwashing they have suffered for the past 65 years, things may indeed start to move in the right direction in Europe.

Immigrants are making Germany 'dumber', according to a board member of the country's central bank.

Thilo Sarrazin claimed the 'limited education' of immigrants - coupled with their high birth rate - meant Germans 'are becoming dumber in a simple way'.

He said: 'There's a difference in the reproduction of population groups with varying intelligence.'

It is not the first time the 65-year-old member of the Bundesbank has caused controversy since he joined last year.

In October he described Muslim children as 'underclass' citizens.

'I don't have to accept someone who lives off a state they reject, doesn't properly take care of the education of his children-and keeps producing more little girls in headscarves,' Mr Sarrazin said.

'That goes for 70 percent of the Turkish and 90 percent of the Arabic population of Berlin.' He added that they were not fit for much other than 'fruit and vegetable selling'.

In his latest speech this week he said there were 'ample statistics' proving he was correct about German intelligence.

He went on to say that in particular immigrants from 'Turkey, the Middle East and Africa' were less educated.

Because immigrants tend to have more children than Germans - who have the lowest birth rate in Europe - this caused 'a different propagation of population groups with different intelligence because parents pass their intelligence on to their children'.

Mr Sarrazin, who was previously Germany's finance minister, has not yet apologised. It is thought his position at the Bundesbank may now be untenable.

A spokesman for a Muslim group in Berlin said: 'He is a tired old white Christian male full of prejudice and few ideas.'

But among conservatives in Germany his comments have struck a chord.

They have voiced concern that the country's three million Turks tend to live in their own communities, socialise among each other and have little in common with their German neighbours.

Three black men wanted for serious assault at Dudley Port railway station

Left: Two of the men wanted for a serious assault which has left the victim in hospital. The victim was so badley beaten police have not been able to interview him yet.

Apparently there is "no motive for the assault". There is also no picture of the victim or mention of whether he is white. In other words the victim is white and this is another sickening race attack against a British person.

The Birmingham Mail reports British Transport Police ahve appealed for help in identifying three men they want to speak to in connection with a serious assault on a passenger at Dudley Port railway station.

Detectives investigating the assault have issued CCTV images of two of the three men they believe can help with their enquiries into the incident which happened on Sunday, May 30.

At about 7.40pm, the 37-year-old victim was at Dudley Port rail station with his cousin when he was approached by two men who engaged him in conversation.

A third man then approached and assaulted the victim who was punched several times to the ribs and head, causing him to fall to the floor. He was left with serious head injuries and is still undergoing treatment in hospital. Read more

Handsworth dentist defrauds £1 million from the NHS

Left Dr Joyce Trail of Handsworth Birmingham.

Dr Joyce Trail, 48, is accused of submitting up to 5,000 bogus patient invoices between 2006 and 2009 and has been suspended from her practice in the West Midlands the Metro reports.

She is charged with one count of obtaining a false money transfer by deception and three counts of fraud and is due to attend a committal hearing at Birmingham magistrates’ court a week on Friday. Dr Trail, who also runs a medical spa in Birmingham, denies any wrongdoing and has said that she intends to plead not guilty to all charges.

She has run her busy practice in Handsworth in the city for the past 12 years and also provides dental treatment at scores of old people’s homes.

In 2008, she opened the city’s first medical spa next door to her practice, offering everything from Botox to ‘smile make-overs’. Proud of her community, Dr Trail has become well-known for her determination to help businesses prosper in the area where she grew up.

She was described her in 2006 as ‘an amazing individual who has given us a lot of help’ by the Community Contact Family Centre, which she supported.

But she was suspended following a lengthy probe by the NHS Counter Fraud Team and West Midlands Police, which led to her arrest.

Another Asian take away in Birmingham infested with mice droppings

Left: Sharar Abdolahi

The Birmingham Mail reports the owner of a filthy Birmingham takeaway pizza outlet found to be “riddled” with mice droppings has been given a suspended prison sentence and banned from running a food business.

East Pizza, in Smallbrook Queensway, run by Sharar Abdolahi, was so dirty it was closed down three times, Birmingham Crown Court heard.

Environmental health officers from Birmingham City Council saw mice running in and out of the premises eating chips and running up and down the kebab rotisserie.

Barry Berlin, prosecuting, said that environmental health officers found both dead and live mice, as well as mouse droppings, next to cooking equipment, food and on pizza boxes when they visited on January 7, 2008.

Mr Berlin said there was also holes and gaps where mice could get in. Read more

10% of Europeans have immunity to HIV (14-16%) amongst Scandinavians

In some parts of Europe today, up to 20% of the population carry at least one copy of the protective allele. However, the populations of Asia and Africa were not exposed to the same epidemics; very few Asians and Africans now carry the allele (see map above). Thus, CCR5 is fairly common in northern Europe but its frequency diminishes as one moves south, and the mutation is rare in the rest of the world. Evolution Berkely

From Science News

About 10 percent of Europeans have a mutation that disables a protein the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1) uses to slip into immune system cells. HIV-1 has a harder time infecting people who have a mutation in one of the two genes that code for this receptor protein, and if these people become infected, their disease progresses more slowly. Those with mutations in both copies of the gene are almost completely resistant to the virus

This genetic mutation arose as recently as 700 years ago, and some researchers have suggested that the bubonic plague that devastated Europe periodically over the past 1,000 years may have selected for the mutation by sparing those who lacked one or both copies of the gene.

In a paper appearing this week in the online Early Edition of The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the two UC Berkeley researchers argue that smallpox, not bubonic plague, is the most likely cause of the spread of this mutation throughout the European population in such a short time.

That is, the same genetic mutation that confers resistance to HIV-1 protects against death from smallpox.

"Our population genetic model finds that genetic selection from plague wouldn't have been sufficient to drive the frequency of this genetic mutation to its current level," said Alison P. Galvani, a Miller Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley. "It was sufficient for smallpox."

Bubonic plague hasn't been a major source of death in Europe or elsewhere for the last 250 years, while smallpox was only eradicated in 1978, at the same time AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) appeared. The survival advantage this genetic mutation provided against smallpox has thus been transferred to AIDS, the authors noted.

Following a 1998 paper that linked the gene deletion with bubonic plague, "bubonic plague had been cited as a classical example of a historical selection pressure acting on a clinically important locus," she said. That classic example now changes, with smallpox replacing the plague.

The gene produces a receptor, called CCR5, that is the main entry port for HIV-1 into T cells and macrophages. While most people around the world have two CCR5 genes or alleles, about 10 percent of Europeans, on average, lack one of the alleles. They thus produce fewer CCR5 receptors, which hinders initial infection by HIV-1 and slows spread within the body once an immune cell has been infected. Those lacking both alleles produce no CCR5 receptor. Read more

Anti white hate crimes continue in Denver. National news still doesn't report
