It is from one of Cicero's orations and is used —used as an exclamation of despair at prevailing social or political norms. It is particularly apposite today given Sarah Champion has been forced by the politically correct red brigade to withdraw her truthful remarks she wrote in the Sun.
Last Friday after the Newcastle guilty verdict on 19 men Champion wrote:
“Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls. There. I said it. Does that make me a racist? Or am I just prepared to call out this horrifying problem for what it is?”
The BBC persists in describing these men as Asian. This is a huge insult to the majority Asian group in the UK, Hindus who have never been implicated in such crimes. That will not bother the BBC one jot.
The Daily Mail has published a scathing condemnation of such Muslim gangs.
The quotes from Trevor Philips, former race equalities Czar and former president of the NUS are well worth reading described these as race hate crimes and called for them to be prosecuted as such.
Imam Qari Asim, of the Makkah mosque in Leeds, added: ‘We cannot hide from the fact that the perpetrators of these appalling crimes were mostly Muslims. If it is cultural prejudices that have led these men to prey on white girls, seeing them as “easy meat”, then this needs to be addressed.
He is right. The common factor between all these gangs, Newcastle, Rochdale, Rotherham etc. is they were predominately Muslim men.
That Sarah Champion had not the courage to stand by her words is profoundly depressing. The Sun printed the truth.
Cicero could have escaped from Rome but returned to take his place in the Senate and denounce the tyranny of the triumvirate. The three leaders [triumviri] Octavian, Lepidus, and Anthony ordered his execution. But it was Anthony who hated him most..He was killed by a man he had once defended in court.
