QT tonight - Trevor Phillips
 
Shocking to hear about all this crime in London. Refreshing to hear Trevor Phillips call it out for what it is.

He was in a unique position on that panel to do that in a way the other members would not have dared to do.

Not sure I could believe my ears when they said they were putting orphaned kids from war zones in to schools without any counselling for them or the kids that are about to encounter them.

He gets a lot of flak for it though. Shame.

Hadn't heard of him until tonight. After the OP I looked at his wikipedia page and I see what you mean Penguin.

I was purely basing my view on his stance on QT.

Trevor's a thoughtful and wise man. He regularly offers a perspective on social and cultural issues that might differ from the stance others take and so he inevitably gets abused for it. Every time he's on the TV or publishes an article there's guaranteed cries of "Uncle Tom", "coconut", "race traitor" from ignorant gobschites on social media.

I know how he feels. Not that I would dare to put myself in such esteemed company.

This is happening here. It’s not unique to London.

True 8_legs. And not only that, kids from places like Romania and Czech republic are being put in certain schools in the area (as they get a premium for each one) and they can't speak any English. Some are only here for a few weeks or months before they move on, and they are hindering the education of others.

Its not the kids fault, but its a real problem that teachers like my wife are having to deal with.

Philips has been 'shot at by both sides' for years. The Mail and tory mps attacked him for being on a quango (Equality and Human Rights Commision) and getting paid £100,000 plus. Then, as stated above, he gets called an 'uncle tom' by self-appointed BAME 'community leaders'.

Called it as it is. Uncomfortable for snowflakes and those wishing to play the race card. A very difficult situation with those believing( hoping) that youth clubs and community youth workers can stem the tide in meaningless violence where the perpetrators have little or no value on human life. Now that is a very hard genie to put back into the bottle.

It certainly is. May the Tories hold their heads in shame for how they've damaged this country.
