Winston “Croydon is a Dump” McKenzie for Croydon Council

UKIP’s Croydon carnival this afternoon drew in the Lobby (after lunch), sketch writers, Michael Crick, steel drummers and assorted protesters. First the steel drummers stopped playing because they said they didn’t know it was a UKIP event. Then Nigel Farage decided not to come, citing “security reasons”. Finally, Winston McKenzie, UKIP spokesman and candidate for Croydon council, ended the day by sharing with the crowd his conclusion that Croydon is “unsafe and a dump”. Poor old Winston is getting a hard time from fairweather, disloyal splitters, so Guido thought he would give his old campaign video a plug:

If that isn’t enough to win your vote…

    Saying it’s a dump isn’t really fair is it.

    Much more accurate is to call it an enriched sh1thole.

    No. It used not to be a dump. But it has suffered considerably enrichment, so now is one.

    Having worked in Croydon for years I can tell you there are some good points.

    1. Its convenient for Bromley.
    2. Its not Swanley
    3. well… 1+2 will have to do.

    Roger Clague says:

    The free entertainment was stopped because of threats of violence by the protesters. I saw a tweets ( later deleted ) in which the bidding went from punches to kicks to using an air rifle on Farage.

    So its seems Winston is right.

    Somebody told me they visited a solicitor with ground floor offices in the centre of Croydon. The door was locked, he knocked, they let him in and then locked the door again once he was inside.

    When he asked why they kept the door locked, they said they had to because if they didn’t, people would walk in and just nick stuff from in front of them. This would be in the middle of the day, in broad daylight.

    My friend told me Croydon was now full of foreigners, asylum seekers and the like. It seems the place has been culturally “enriched”.

    McKenzie was right. Croydon is a dump. The only trouble for him is you’re not supposed to tell the truth about things like that these days.

    As if UKIP would win such an ‘enriched’ area anyway. They may as well pre-print the fucking ballot papers in backward shitholes like that.

    Winston says:

    Err…Guido is peddling lies again. Just look at the Buzzfeed link to the right. The steel band are playing happily for the UKIP gathering, until the usual white, middle-class SWP students turn up and start threatening everyone and screaming abuse. Clearly, it was intimidation that spooked them. But don’t let the truth get in the way of your Tory/Murdoch rewards, Guido.

    jimmy the fish says:

    I think we all know there will be a big concerted smear in the coming final hours. Expect Guido, Hodges, Cathy Newman, BBC, the Times, MailOnline and of course the telegraph to have saved up some ridiculous smear – I am expecting something trying to link Ukip to the far-left B&P, perhaps a heavily edited video showing someone senior with a forbidden opinion.

    The smears of recent weeks have been quite well organised and have even included blogs like this one sadly. I think it has galvanised much support for Ukip but may work by stopping some left-leaning Tories for example from switching.

    I think the establishment will work together with one final big smear maybe tomorrow morning. Will be fascinating to see.

    As Winston says, it’s now or never.

    Go on Nigel!

    All quite plausible. I am still surprised they haven’t roped in President Omaha to say Ukip is racialist, I wonder if there will be a video along those lines released tomorrow morning. Or a big group of economists and bankers etc warning of doom.

    I think twats like Dan Hodges have now devalued the word racist to the point where it no longer bothers people and that smear has seen ukip gain something like 5 to 10% of the vote in recent weeks, perhaps never again will smearing opponents as racist be assumed to work.

    So maybe other things like economics might be the way.

    When is it going to be verified just who is behind these non-representative posh far-left extremists. There is a reason why nothing is really done about them. Don’t forget that Shameron and the unConservatives have been collaborating with the Guardian. They obviously have members in the ‘teaching’ profession but it’s known that a few BBC types are members too. We know Winston isn’t exactly perfect but good luck to him anyway. How many black people has anybody met who belong to Marxist organisations there really aren’t many.

    The British media are cunts says:

    Did anyone else see the one sided BBC bollocks about the EU last night on Newsnight?

    Once again the BBC were telling porkies, if we leave the EU the BBC only showed one side of the coin. The BBC forgot to mention that if we left the EU economy would suffer, especially as they sell more ot us than we do to them. The EU will be desperate to keep trading with us and if they refused ot allow our goods to be sold in the EU why would we let them sell their stuff here or give them access to our fishing grounds.

    Us leaving the EU could cost thousands of jobs in other EU countries and von Merkel certainly doesn’t want that.

    So if we leave the EU all that will happen is a free trade agreement and carry on as before except we won’t be constrained by all the EU bollocks and we’d save ourselves billions a year in handouts to the EU.

    It has no recognisable centre but is bisected by an underpass. Every street is a wind tunnel so you can go there looking neat but arrive looking as if you have been pulled through a hedge backwards. The taller buildings are built in a brutalist style, they are hostile to human beings and it is often difficult to see how you can enter a building. There is not one place which a self-respecting person with reasonable means would want to live in. The beer is like gnats piss.

    I have not been there now for around a decade. So it has had a reasonable chance to get worse.

    rimboooo says:

    Honestly you’ve got it wrong. Enriched areas always include some decent people who are seeing first hand the destruction of culture and civilisation and are the ones prepared to fight to stop it. Many also have Christian morals. Furthermore many came from Jamaica etc in the 60s, they cam because they wanted to live among English people, in a free country, with freedom of speech and the rule of law.

    They know that those things are incompatible with importing millions of newcomers every decade. They know that political correctness is destroying freedom. And they know that there is NOTHING racist about saying you don’t want more immigrants and those immigrants have taken your job.

    The scum element in those areas often don’t vote, that’s why labour pushed for postal votes to secure those areas. Those decent people though are prime ukip voters and candidates and we are seeing more and more people joining ukip despite the bbd, mail online, sun and guido smear machine working overdrive

    If you’re poor, black and feeling desperate then ukip are the only ones who might help you, who will stop you having to compete with thousands of romanians for your job who will return the rule of law and justice, who will bring back democracy. It’s a message that can cut across all groups.

    Well, perhaps not “a dump” exactly. South Croydon is marvellous compared to Peckham (north Croydon less so). But it’s soulless and uninspired. Precious little heritage. All very functional and utilitarian. Lots of concrete.

    Even the bits that are intended to be decorative have a corporate feel to them, as though they were designed by people who do this for a living, following a remit and a computer program.

    I always think that, were a tourist to ask, “I’m in Croydon for two hours. What’s worth seeing,” you’d be very hard pressed to provide an answer.

    You know how, in some train stations, they erect signs to tell you what’s wonderful about the town? Go to Liverpool, and there’s probably a sign evoking the glories of football and the Beatles. Go to Stratford-upon-Avon, and there’s a sign telling you that this is Shakespeare’s birthplace.

    Go to East Croydon station, and there’s a sign that says, “Home of Nestle U.K..” Oh be still, my beating heart.

    Hard for UKIP if they don’t come first but Farage can point to weeks of unrelenting negative press and use that as an excuse for not topping the polls. Even so 2nd would be a great result, if disappointing in the short term.

    So its your man Ed with the toughest day. He has to explain why he decided a refusal to agree to any EU referendum was a good idea.
    Why didn’t he wait? He’d said nothing about EU before he ruled out letting the people decide.. He has said nothing since either.

    You must admit PLEB it was an extraordinary thing to do. To rule out a referendum.
    He or his advisers sought to please the 5% Liberal vote at the expense of the 25% UKIP one.

    None of them were particularly great, but why did they need to be? It’s not as if the locals could take their business elsewhere.

    You’re right, the concerted work between this blog and Hodges is quite blatant.

    Many though are saying this isn’t Guido but the odious ToryBear – the fat one who is always turning in tv interviews about how he wants even MORE immigration. So who knows what the internal politics are. I’m still prepared to cut Guido some slack if he would apologise and redouble his efforts on exposing all political parties etc.

    It strikes me we’re at an important junction. Is it really to be said now that not wanting potentially millions of romanians to invade Britain makes someone a racist? (that’s the dan hodges explicit position and the guido implied one) And that someone therefore can’t be elected.

    I say this island belongs to the British and it is for us to democratically say who can live here. That’s the best reason to vote for Nigel, to support that freedom and democracy.

The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer’s pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue” – Lord Clyde KC DL (1863 – 1944), one of the good things to have come out of Scotland.

    The Victory of Reason says:

    Zuerst ignorieren sie dich«, wusste schon Mahatma Gandhi, »dann lachen sie dich aus. Dann bekämpfen sie dich, und dann hast du gewonnen.« Was der indische Freiheitskämpfer erlebte, könnte kommenden Sonntag die britische »United Kingdom Independence Party« (Ukip) erleben. Die rechtspopulistische Partei hat beste Aussichten als Sieger bei den Europawahlen hervorzugehen. Gut 31 Prozent der Wählerstimmen werden ihr prognostiziert, und damit dürfte Ukip die stärkste anti-europäische Fraktion im Europa-Parlament werden. Für die politische Landschaft in Großbritannien hätte der Durchbruch weitreichende Folgen.
    Besonders die Chefs der etablierten Parteien bekämen Kopfschmerzen. Es ist bei Europawahlen durchaus normal, dass die Regierungspartei abgewatscht wird. Aber den Konservativen droht, hinter Ukip und Labour auf den dritten Platz zu landen, und das wäre das erste Mal, seitdem im Königreich das allgemeine Wahlrecht eingeführt wurde, dass die Konservativen in einer nationalen Wahl nicht mindestens zweite wurden. Partei-Chef David Cameron würde unter Druck geraten, sich weiter nach rechts zu bewegen. Zum Beispiel: beim Thema Immigration eine noch härtere Linie zu fahren.
    Auch für den Labour-Chef Ed Miliband wäre ein Sieg von Ukip mehr als peinlich. Die Oppositionsrolle fiele erstmals, zumindest auf Europa-Ebene, an einen Außenseiter. Labour hat in den letzten Wochen mühsam zu kaschieren versucht, dass man sich zu Europa, meist aus Angst vor einer euroskeptischen Presse, nicht so recht bekennen will. Labours Strategie für Europa war, Europa nicht zu erwähnen. Die Rufe innerhalb Labours würden laut, ebenfalls wie die Konservativen ein Referendum über den EU-Ausstieg zuzulassen.
    Für den Chef der Liberaldemokraten Nick Clegg zeichnet sich ein einziges Desaster ab. Die dezidiert pro-europäische Partei, die einst als Sammelbecken für Proteststimmen auf über 20 Prozent kam, liegt zur Zeit bei gerade neun Prozent und könnte gar auf den fünften Platz, hinter die Grünen, zurückfallen. Ihre Präsenz im Europa-Parlament würde dramatisch schrumpfen. Das schlechte Abschneiden könnte die Regierungskoalition gefährden. Vize-Premier Clegg käme unter parteiinternen Druck, sich deutlich vom konservativen Koalitionspartner zu distanzieren, um den Liberaldemokraten mehr Eigenprofil zu geben.
    Lachender Vierter im Bund wäre dann Nigel Farage, der charismatische Parteivorsitzende von Ukip. Er hätte seine Partei langfristig als politische Kraft rechts von den Konservativen verankert. Auch das ist ein »First« in der britischen Politik. Noch nie haben die Torys im rechten Parteienspektrum einen ernsthaften Rivalen gehabt. Farage würde die Debatten nachhaltig beeinflussen – nicht direkt im Unterhaus, weil Ukip dort keine Abgeordneten hat, gleichwohl aber indirekt über die Forcierung populistischer Themen.
    Ukip hat Erfolg, weil sie einerseits entäuschten Konservativen eine Rückkehr zu einer thatcheristischen Politik anbietet. Und sie wird andererseits Labour gefährlich, weil sie die Ressentiments der von Wohnungsnot und Niedriglöhnen bedrohten Arbeiterklasse bedient. Jetzt rächt sich, dass sich die großen Parteien über die letzten 20 Jahre fast nur auf die Mittelklassen konzentriert haben.

Only if they agree to give up thier MP and be represented as part of a constituency with Shetland and Orkney (themselves allowed a disgraceful MP to be elected by only 33,755 voters) should they be allowed to remain part of the UK. Otherwise the SNP-voting tax drones in the WesternIisles can go fuck off. If they want to stay their anti-democratic special pleading and subsidy-leaching will have to stop.

    Ockham's Razor says:

    Anyone with any knowledge of history and warfare will know that one’s plans get ripped up faster than you have time to read them.

    My opinion, for what it is worth, is that Putin thinks the EU is soft (which it is) but once it gets going anything might be on the table. There is a lot of bad feeling still around over the Comicon times (albeit with a minority, mostly older, who still hanker after it).

    Therefore Putin is wary of what he does. Ukraine is probably OK – he can get away with that, particularly with the east of the country. The Baltic States are not, despite the likely pretence of protecting Kaliningrad.

    The old problem then rears its ugly head. Putin grabs E Ukraine and then has the taste of blood in his mouth and the feeling of power he already has from Crimea. Does he become crazed?

    Meanwhile Obama has his oil weapon at the ready. But does he have the guts to use it? I have my doubts. True, it will start off a chain reaction itself if he does. But there will be another slower and possibly more dangerous fuse lit if he doesn’t.

    No good options anywhere here that I see.

    Croydon was one of the London Suburbs built on hope and hard work and post WW2 was thriving with real working class families. I know my Uncle was one of them. Many of the folks there were employed in manufacturing not least the Ford Factpry at Dagenham.

    I think it’s remarkable what ukip have achieved – they are a relatively new party, they are politically a bit unsophisticated and naive and some of their tactics as the election has come closer have degenerated into the childish . I think tomorrow’s results will be interesting watching and have far reaching effects on the other parties especially if ukip do achieve that 30% of the vote that the polls are indicating.

    It is quite possible, at least on paper at the moment, that they could overtake the libdems but ukip lack the structural support at ground level that the other three parties have and that’s the big issue they now to address if they want to start being considered as one of the grown up parties.

    The problem is not so much getting the UK out of the EU, but getting the EU out of the UK!
    This morning the treacherous Quisling Clegg was on the BBC being fed friendly questions ,and spouting the usual trash about millions of jobs being at risk, one of them presumably being his.
    This must be the first time in the history of this country that senior ministers have openly been in the pay of a foreign power, not only that, but consider it to be their first allegiance!

    The Growler says:

    Croydon is surely a throwup city that oozed from that cesspit called London, to all extents and purposes it could be regarded as part of Greater London. I don’t know the place, passed through it a few times on the train many years ago, never been back. Every town, city has it’s own troubled areas, I should think Croydon isn’t any different from any other overcrowded area in the country, trouble travels like a viral infection, the authorities do not attempt to control it until it has got out of control then they decide to act, too late.

    Charles Foster Kane says:

    This is reminiscent of the Little Green Footballs (LGF) debacle. Around 2009, Charles Johnson, owner of the world’s most popular right-leaning blog suddenly took a sharp turn to the left and started banning dozens of commenters, especially those in Europe who were smeared as ‘N-z-s.’ Thousands of regulars deserted, many heading for new blogs set up by ex-LGF contributors.

    Who today remembers LGF?

    Those ungrateful fuckers, eh John. The researchers go to all the trouble of finding idealised Romanians and when they turn up they don’t tow the line.

    They’d better vote Labour or there will be real trouble.

    We don’t really have the wherewithal to process this.

    Only hideously whíte people attack others on the basis of race or group attachment.

    Apparently there was some sort of kerfuffle in Sheffield yesterday, which we are sure is all the fault of nasty whítes rather than lovely brown people.

    I'll have a pint of what you're having says:

    UKIP lack the structural support on the Ground that the other Parties have? Really? In what way?

    People attending Local Meetings?
    Delivering leaflets through letterboxes?
    Grassroots giving money to Campaigns?
    Getting mobilized on MSM and explaining your side of the Debates?

    BTW, Labour – £12 Million+ in Debt
    Conservatives – £1.2 Million in Debt
    Liberals – who gives a shit. Morally in Debt
    UKIP – Running on fumes, relying on motivated Locals to do what the MSM don’t/cannot do.

    I’m rather perplexed as to how you see/contrive to sell the major Political Parties. I’ve NEVER had a political flyer through my door and I’m fully aware of how my Local Politics works (Labour, with a dose of Labour, with a sprinkling of Labour on top)

    Clutching at straws, it does have the best collection of Chinese porcelain outside of the British Musuem (The Riesco Collection in the Town Hall). That’s very pleasant and well worth a visit should you have the misfortune to be in Croydon – although I’m almost hesitant to mention it lest I alert some Croydonian to its existence and they trick to nick it. The Riesco Collection was donated to the Town by a local collector who had fond memories of the place back when it was in England.

    The Town Museum is quite quirky too – they’ve got ‘Bozo the caveman’ and a Bubble car!

    The town centre church, St Michael and all the Angels, is likewise worth a visit – yet it’s simultaneously depressing to see such beauty surrounded (and beseiged) by Mordor.

    And to consider – one possible derivation for the name Croydon’ comes from ‘Hill of the crocuses’…

    It has some excellent schools, ie Trinity and Whitgift, very good choice of housing in the southern parts. I agree the town centre is depressing.

    Poor Croydon. Large parts of it were bombed flat during WW2 and afterwards the place was rebuilt as a cheap concrete jungle. It’s used to being sneered at by the citizens of prettier, wealthier towns. But few can afford those places now.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
