During the second world war people of German origin were rounded up and imprisoned in the name of national security
At the outbreak of war there were around 80,000 potential enemy aliens in Britain who, it was feared, could be spies, or willing to assist Britain’s enemies in the event of an invasion. All Germans and Austrians over the age of 16 were called before special tribunals and were divided into one of three groups:
- ‘A’ – high security risks, numbering just under 600, who were immediately interned;
- ‘B’ – ‘doubtful cases’, numbering around 6,500, who were supervised and subject to restrictions;
- ‘C’ – ‘no security risk’, numbering around 64,000, who were left at liberty. More than 55,000 of category ‘C’ were recognised as refugees from Nazi oppression. The vast majority of these were Jewish.
The situation began to change in the spring of 1940. The failure of the Norwegian campaign led to an outbreak of spy fever and agitation against enemy aliens. More and more Germans and Austrians were rounded up. Italians were also included, even though Britain was not at war with Italy until June. When Italy and Britain did go to war, there were at least 19,000 Italians in Britain, and Churchill ordered they all be rounded up. This was despite the fact that most of them had lived in Britain for decades.
Thousands of Germans, Austrians and Italians were sent to camps set up at racecourses and incomplete housing estates, such as Huyton outside Liverpool. The majority were interned on the Isle of Man, where internment camps had also been set up in World War One. Facilities were basic, but it was boredom that was the greatest enemy. Internees organised educational and artistic projects, including lectures, concerts and camp newspapers. At first married women were not allowed into the camps to see their husbands, but by August 1940 visits were permitted, and a family camp was established in late 1941.
These days we are more likely to be at war with a religion rather than a nation, so if we were at war how would we cope with so many potential “security risks” ?
The answer is we wouldn’t be able to identify ALL potential threats, Britain has sealed it’s own fate by being so generous in allowing so many nationalities to settle here. More worryingly the amount of Muslims who want to settle here should be of concern!
“We will outbreed you with the bellies of our women”
The above statement is fact, Muslims in this country are allowed polygamy (more than one wife) and our generous benefits system allows Muslim families to outbreed their hosts. Again our own generosity could be our downfall, by using our democracy against us. The Muslim vote is already a powerful one as demonstrated recently in Bradford and Tower Hamlets!
Vision for the future…..
2030 – A Muslim Prime Minister
Between then and now Christianity in decline, Islam is Britains most supported religion. Dozens of disused churches are converted into mosques. Imams teach RE in British schools. Lancashire, Yorkshire, Birmingham, East London, Luton are made Islamic Sharia zones, Female Genital Mutilation available on NHS, It is a criminal offence punishable by death to criticise Islam!
