… as is the determined deployment of candles, flowers and messages of hope.  Operations involving vigils, mass hand-holding and repetition of platitudes have been proven to be ineffective now.

And yet our temporal, pastoral and thought leaders still come out with the same old stuff. Amber Rudd’s statement on Tuesday morning was pure milk and honey, distilled from a potent mix of platitudes. The Archbishop stood on his pulpit telling us to love not hate. The lefty journalists of the Mainstream media still pumped the same old PC-trash.

And the most wondrous of all was Hazel Blears on Wednesday morning on Radio 4, the former Labour Minister who introduced the patently ineffective “Prevent” strategy aimed at de-radicalizing those likely to become radical. It pains me too much to find a recording of it and hear her words verbatim so I can faithfully record them, but I recall the gist well enough about “this evil ideology” that promotes the idea of people of “dying for their cause in order to reach Paradise.” She meant the ideology of the radicals in seeking that goal of paradise in the way that they do, murdering our defenceless children. What she ignorantly missed was the written text of this desire: to die in jihad and go to paradise is written in plain words in the Quran so anyone can read it. Do I need to spell it out what the “evil ideology” is?

And, so, in 1939 when an enemy threatened the very being of this nation, our culture, heritage, language, laws, our birth-right, the British began to get angry. And when that anger was stoked by the outrages of Luftwaffe bombings and our humiliating defeat in defending our friends on the continent, it led to HATE.

Oh dear, send plod round to lock me up, I have written the word “hate”. By law, I am no longer allowed to express my hate of someone. It seems to be a crime now on a par with blowing up people with home-made bombs. But I do hate, although I am careful who I hate as I do not want to hate whole communities. But I do hate those who murder in the name of their god, those who encourage them to do so, even those who protect them from the law, but most of all I hate the politicians and authorities who seem to give them the safe cover they need to operate, who do not apply the full force of the existing laws to control their behaviour, but do deploy considerable resources to detect what is euphemistically called “hate speech”.

I feel that at this moment of time, I do detect a rise in the feelings of my fellow citizens to at least anger, if not hate, and I am reminded of the pertinence of one of Rudyard Kipling’s excellent writings:

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud, 
When the English began to hate. 

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date 
That the English began to hate. 

And not forgetting the Scottish, Welsh and Irish too. And the group we must first turn our hatred towards are our politicians, the liberal elites who either do not understand the root problem, or do not want to. They must feel our hate, much as Patrick O’Flynn with his UKIP Daily article on Wednesday has received it from our commenters, but LibLabCon deserve it more.

And I also recall in my living memory the anger and then hate our nation felt towards the terrorists from Ireland who started to blow up innocent British victims on our streets some 45 years ago. Then our politicians did take effective measures: they sent in the Army, they militarised the Northern Ireland police and crucially pointed them at the right target and … they introduced internment camps for known terrorists, just as the Americans did in 1941 for every single person of Japanese descent living in their country and indeed we did with every German citizen in 1939.

When will it come to that?
