I don't think anyone should take lessons in... anything really from a Harlow Conservative Party that let a candidate stand AFTER he compared Islam to alcoholism.

Charming ignoramus isn't he.

2018-06-19 09:09:24

That actually happened. No wonder you don't want to debate with me.

2018-06-19 10:05:00

Idiotic presumption again. Some-times, I wonder why I bother.

2018-06-19 11:20:24

Where and when then, Peter? Oops. I meant Micky.

Maybe the candidate that you are thinking of has a point. "Asian" Grooming Gangs in over 20 towns in the UK. Manchester, London, Paris, Nice, Stockholm, Barcelona all scenes of horrific terrorist attacks. Thousands of cases of FGM recorded every year despite it being illegal not a single prosecution. Barbaric slaughter of animals that are not even stunned before having their throats slit all in the name of religion. Let's be clear Not all Muslims are evil and it would be wrong to suggest that. however we do appear to have issues and the only way to resolve them is to admit the problem exists in the first place.

Your family name ain't the best in the navy, Maverick. The vast majority of people in prison for child and adult sex offences are white males. Funny how we didn't see many Tories at the open day at the Islamic Centre on Saturday. But then, that would be meeting people and finding out for yourself and not parroting what fascists like Tommy Robinson say because you're scared of anyone with different skin colour and different customs to you. So you're saying that Islam is like alcoholism then? Is that the accepted policy of the Harlow Conservative Party?

2018-06-19 16:58:00

Sorry John I can't answer for tory party policy. I did say not all followers of Islam are bad guys just the Radicals.

2018-06-19 16:58:22

Nothing riles the Harlow Conservative Party quite like talking about Islam does it.

2018-06-19 17:04:48

Who's John?

2018-06-20 06:12:49

More waffle and ridiculous comment from ykw. As a percentage of the population, the amount of immigrant males in prison for criminal activity, are way beyond the numbers being quoted by ykw. Where is the quote about 'alcoholism' from ? Typical, anything but the truth from..........................

2018-06-20 10:11:30

Peter Lamb, who I think you know, made the comments and not only that, defended the indefensible... http://www.yourharlow.com/2017/09/17/toddbrook-tory-candidate-defends-islam-comments-on-social-media/ The "as a percentage of the population" excuse to knock people of colour is the new "I'm not racist, but". Does the Harlow Conservative Party have a problem with Islam I ask myself?

2018-06-20 12:01:26

Facts, I have a right to an opinion, you'll never hear me say," I'm not a racist". Truth is truth, momentum doesn't do truth, it dodges it every time. Most of the disasters in our country for the last umpteen years, has been at the hands of so called Islamists. Factual or not ?

2018-06-20 15:24:49

How about the Finsbury Park murderer who drove into those people at the mosque there? How about the hundreds of violent offenders you don't hear about going to prison because the Islamophobic press focus on the few following a twisted version of Islam? Once again, I will say that the vast majority of people in prison in this country are white. Talking to you, you'd think they were all people of colour. Peter Lamb's vile comments were deliberately targeted to offend billions of Muslims as alcohol is generally forbidden by the Quran. You still haven't condemned them. What a shocker. Divide and conquer, the old Tory trick.

I bet you hated all Irish Catholics in the 80s too. You should get your head out of the Daily Heil, get out and meet some people. Maybe then you'll chill out.

2018-06-21 05:33:36

Meanwhile, what happens to the so called 'static' travellers ? You use the word hate with a total ignorance of what it means. So, you agree that dumping rubbish, and even worse is ok ? About time that you got into the real world. Why are you so full of spite and hatred ? As if I really care.

2018-06-21 05:44:41

How can you make a comparison between a man being run over outside a mosque, and the atrocities that have been inflicted upon our country by the fanatical islamists ?

2018-06-21 09:10:39

"As if I really care!" Kevin the teenager is at it again, stomping off to his room. Both were terrorism, unless you think terrorist attacks are only committed by people with different skin colour to you. You don't do you?

2018-06-21 11:17:11

Mickey 3. Troll 0.

2018-06-21 11:29:41

Why won't you debate with me? Come on Nick, or Peter. I'll take either of you on.

2018-06-21 11:45:08

I'm not surprised you don't want to debate. As we see above, you can't even spell your name right.

2018-06-21 13:39:30

This weeks deliberate mistake for you to find. You get a 1/2 point for being observant. As a professional activist you really are desperate to show how smart you are. - 1/2 point for being smug.

2018-06-21 15:39:05

You throw all these insults at me but are scared of a debate. I think I know why...

2018-06-28 15:42:59

I have to say it's absolutely laughable that jfq can turn an article on increasing the number of portfolio holders to the highest level in Harlow's history, in a blatant "jobs for Momentum boys and girls", into a debate about a stupid quote from unsuccessful Tory Council candidate! Truly stunning and utterly ridiculous! What has that got to do with the article? Then jfq you have the cheek to moan people won't debate with you! Wonder why? Cos you can't stay on topic perhaps?

2018-06-28 15:48:36

And lets not forget one of these portfolio holders compared other Councillors to Nazis, and another made an inappropriate comment about domestic violence! Yet they are still in post! Nobody does hypocrisy quite like Labour and Momentum eh?

2018-07-01 10:07:54

Spot on UKMaverick785. Truth gets to the momentum brigade like you wouldn't believe.
