Rescuing those drowning in the Mediterranean

Lord Hylton

In recent years refugees and migrants have been desperately trying to reach Europe from Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and even Morocco.  In 2014 some 3400 people are thought to have drowned, even though many more were rescued from the sea.

This year the pressure is likely to be even greater, because of wars in Syria, Libya, and further south around Lake Chad, as well as in the Sudan and Somalia.  Lebanon and Tunisia have each taken in over 1 million displaced people, without putting them in camps.

On 11th April, the Times had a helpful article describing the work of the Migrants Off-Shore Aid Station, a charity based in Malta.  With the help of Médecines Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), MOAS is providing the MY Phoenix, a fully equipped 40 metre vessel, for search and rescue this summer.  The historic Order of the Knights of Malta may also assist the project.  This will reinforce whatever the EU’s Operation Triton can do, to prevent loss of life.

The running costs still to be raised, amount to some $1.6 million for six months work.  Anyone who can help should contact Brigadier Martin Xuereb –

    The ‘Bilderberg Secret Conspiracy Society’ is reportedly actively gearing up to reduce the world population from its present and runaway-ballooning number of over 7 billion people, to then be held steady at the survival-safety number of 500, 000 people, worldwide all told and never to be exceeded, long-term.

    Most of us, however, are mindset as you say Lord Hylton to “save lives”, especially so it appears to save those who through no fault of their own are being “ethnicly-cleansed’ or otherwise faced with no real life-choice but to flee almost barefoot often across merciless desert territory, to neighbouring hospitable countries, or to “flee in overcrowded-rowboats and even try to swim the Mediterranean”, to the safety of Europe.

    For £1 one can buy an inflatable “armchair” – which might even prove seaworthy enough to be towed to safety-&-access-to-survival-rations,
    in numerous lines astern, with an adult or perhaps two small children tied securely into each such ‘coracle’, towed by a small or large motorised humanitarian vessel.

    Another try to put a grasp of the reality in the minds of movers and shakers leading us over a cliff with impunity.

    Is Farage the only man who is prepared to look the future in the face and tell us what he sees? I wonder if this is how Hitler managed to get voted in in Germany? By the implementation of only politically correct dogma being allowed in the newspapers of the time and in general disscussion at dinner? What a really sorry tale it would have been for those he had his eye on destroying, should our leaders of the day been as frightened of bullying as they are now.

    My goodness, our present front runner is too afraid to even put his case to the people he rules for fear of being downsized by his opponents. God help us all this coming May.

    I found this, once again, when I was surfing today and felt all those in our parliament have, for some reason, decided to ignore this part of the ‘Human Rights Act’ they so love to adhere to.

    It goes to show that we ‘European indigenous peoples’ have our rights to deny entry to our country if we want to do so. I think, Nigel Farage, should make a poster with this on it and ask why those in each of our parties ignore it? What is their reason for doing so? What is it they want for this country? Why didn’t they ask the citizens, prior to opening our borders for mass immigration, if it was what we wanted for our country? Quite easy by referendum, is it not?

    ‘United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’

    Article 8

    1. Indigenous individuals have the right not to be subjected to forced assimilation or destruction of their culture.

    2. States shall provide effective mechanisms for prevention of, and redress for :
    a) Any action which has the aim or effect of depriving them of their integrity as distinct peoples, or of their cultural values or ethnic identities;
    b) Any action which has the aim or effect of dispossessing them of their lands, territories or resources;
    c) Any form of forced population transfer which has the aim or effect of violating or undermining any of their rights;
    d) Any form of forced assimilation or integration;
    e) Any form of propaganda designed to promote or incite racial or ethnic discrimination against them; ‘

    So, to those politicians writing in newspapers today, that we have the smell of racism if we vote UKIP, take note. What our governments have been doing is illegal under the same ‘Human Rights Act’ they feel gives them the authority to invade our lands with alien cultures.

    In essence, we could take them all to court and seek outright redress for their traitorous act against us.
