Since Britain’s immigrant population is overwhelmingly Muslim and many of those Muslims are recent immigrants, this is another attempt to make Muslims feel welcome, which the Muslim Baroness Warsi is claiming that the British government is not doing. But what about Britons who speak English? Do they not have a right to feel as if their government is leaving them unprotected, and doesn’t care about their well-being? But what, if anything, are the British people going to do about that?
“Non-English speaking victims of crime to be given priority, police chief suggests,” by Danny Boyle, Telegraph, August 25, 2017:
Victims of crime who do not speak English could be given priority by the Metropolitan Police, a senior officer has suggested.
Deputy Commissioner Craig Mackey said that callers might be denied a personal visit from police unless they are deemed to be sufficiently “vulnerable”.
He said it is “absolutely feasible” that “face-to-face” visits by officers could be reserved for the “vulnerable” – giving examples as those for whom English is not a first language, the elderly and people with learning difficulties….
He said: “That’s where you get into some of the difficult areas around do you always offer the same service to everyone?
“Increasingly, as we go forward we will look at things like trying to assess people and crime on the sort of the threat, the harm, the risk, and people’s vulnerability.
“It’s absolutely feasible as we go forward that if my neighbour is a vulnerable elderly person who has experienced a particular type of crime, that she gets a face-to-face service that I don’t get. So we triage things… we assess people’s vulnerability.
“Vulnerability can manifest itself in a number of ways: people with learning difficulties, a whole range of things, some people for whom English isn’t a first language.
“That’s about how we get those resources focused on the things you can make a difference with. But also as we go forward, as demand grows, you have to have a way of controlling and triaging.”…
