|Disabled person in wheelchair giving the able-bodied the one-finger salute - used on Riven Vincent's Facebook profile. Is she biting the hand that feeds her?|
For some reason Phillip Blond - the theologian and think tanker http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phillip_Blond @Phillip_Blond http://twitter.com/#!/Phillip_Blond - is a member of "Disabled People Against Claire Khaw", which I find rather bemusing. I had no idea that he was suffering from a disability.
Claire Khaw is a Malaysian member of the BNP and a very dangerous woman, in 2009, when David Cameron lost his son, Ivan, Clair Blogged that it was a positive thing because keeping him alive was a waste of public money. She has a bizarre blog where she expresses her insane views, including "reintroduce slavery, make bastardy a disgrace, reintroduce public executions and reintroduce public floggings" ( see interview Here: http://alexlibertarian.blogspot.com/2010/12/claire-khaw-uncovered.html) . Claire has built up a reputation online, Counting politician and journalists among her ‘friends” on face book. She has received a lot of hostility on-line from the public, but it is her views on disability which are the focus of this group on the 5th of March, 2011, 5live interviewed withy Rivern Vincent the mother of a disabled child, Ms Khaw rang up and wanted to ask a question , she then proceeded to argue that the it was fundamentally wrong for the state to0 support Mrs Vincent’s daughter, because it was not economically viable. When challenge about this by everyone including the presente Victoria Derbyshire , Mrs Vincent, another parent, and the MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke, Jack Lopresti (Con), she defended her posistion and went on to state openly that if she gave birth to a disabled child she would reject it and instruct the midwife to ‘get rid of it’. Now I have challenged her about her views and found her response immoral and upsetting,. Some of her replies were as follows: “Art has utility because it gives pleasure. A severely disabled baby cannot possibly give me any pleasure, though it may be very useful to you if you use it for begging money from the government and your friends and family or getting sympathy from everyone you meet.” Or “No one has said they agree with me, but there are others who do agree with me if you read my wall on that day, though they are not in the BNP. Disabled people are really getting above themselves these days.”
According to blogs and forums, Claire is being touted as the BNP’s candidate for 2012 London Mayoral Elections. This means she will be NO. 1 on the Top-up list for the GLA for the BNP. This woman needs to be challenge. I don’t care what your politics are who you vote for, this is not a political cause, it is about what ideas are acceptable in public lif., Iin calling for a united front against the evil bigotry of this ‘woman’ let’s challenge Claire rout her ‘views’ at every single opportunity . Invite everyone you know, because we will win.
http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.com/2011/03/claire-khaw-on-victoria-derbyshire-show.html displays my reasoning in some detail, which I do not need to go into here.
It is tiresome to have to keep repeating that I have not advocated a policy of general extermination of the disabled by the government.
I do not believe that anyone has a right to demand that anyone else pick up the tab for their children, whether able-bodied or disabled.
Having been described as "a very dangerous woman" (as if I were really capable of breaking and entering your home and exterminating your severely disabled baby), I wish to reassure those who are easily frightened to please believe that I do not have the superhuman abilities sometimes attributed to me nor the athleticism of a cat burglar to break into your home to exterminate your disabled baby.
I am Libertarian, not Terminator.
"I don’t care what your politics are who you vote for, this is not a political cause, it is about what ideas are acceptable in public life."
This is of course an issue of CENSORSHIP, which is of course extremely political.
I have blasphemed and now must be punished. I have been repeatedly called a Nazi when infanticide is in fact common to many cultures and was around for a long time before Hitler had been heard of.
Predictably, it has been suggested that the BNP (who may or may not make me the 2012 London mayoral candidate) have members and policies that endorse what I have said. Actually, many of them wished I had not said it because they have quite enough bad press already. For the record I should make it clear that the BNP manifesto has no policy at all on the disabled as any search at http://communications.bnp.org.uk/ge2010manifesto.pdf would reveal. This is probably because, like all parties, the BNP do not regard the disabled to constitute a significantly large section of the electorate to come under the BNP radar.
There are many mothers who use their disabled children as an instrument of attention- and sympathy-seeking that makes them somehow beyond criticism. It is also a way of sorting out the pecking order amongst mothers who do not work. The more a martyr you are to your children (disabled or not), the higher you are in the pecking order at your coffee mornings.
"You have a disabled child? Well, I have two!"
Their disabled children are used as weapon to bully Prime Ministers like Cameron (who used his late son Ivan to show the voting public that the NHS was safe with him).
This mania to have more disabled children and therefore be more worthy of sympathy and respect is just what Mumsnet culture consists of ie demanding yet more handouts from the government who are so pathetically eager to pander to the female voter.
Riven Vincent is of course Queen of Mumsnet. http://www.mumsnet.com/special-needs/riven-vincent-statement-on-respite-care
Witness how willingly our so-called alpha males - David Davis and David Cameron - humiliated themselves on Woman's Hour (which is the radio version of Mumsnet) when they suffered Martha Kearney to ask them what kind of underwear they wore. http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/story.asp?storyCode=34195§ioncode=1
Can you imagine a female politician being asked this question??
So this is how low we have sunk, that our politicians are too afraid of telling the most demanding clients of the welfare state and the most rapacious consumers of welfare - mothers of disabled children - that they too will have to suffer their fair share of the cuts.
Pandering to the Mothers of the Disabled vote is pretty idiotic anyway, since they are so electorally insignificant.
What a shame the government will not do the obvious and rational thing and pander to the over-burdened taxpayer.
