Definition of Useful Idiot:
Originally coined by Vladimir Lenin shortly after the Russian Revolution, it refers to wealthy Westerners who favoured the Bolsheviks in their revolution. It is usually followed by “The capitalists will sell us the rope we will use to hang them.”
A policeman’s lot is not a happy one so the song goes but maybe not for Police Superintendent Charlie Hill of Herefordshire. He appears to have a nice little number pandering to the ranks of the perpetually offended and apparently promoting Islam as well.
He’s stuck his head over the parapet to show his multicultural credentials by investigating alleged ‘racist’ comments on the Hereford Times Bulletin Board and on the Facebook site of the Hereford Masjid Fundraising Campaign (which has since shut down due to sheer volume of abuse).
I’m sorry Superintendent Hill, after reading your comments I think maybe you should have stayed in Traffic Division in Bow, because although you may well be quite well versed in the Road Traffic Acts most certainly your knowledge is lacking in other areas. I’m surprised that having worked in Bow, in the East of London that you do not appear to know that Islam is not a race, it is a politico-religious culture, but definitely not a race. It’s not as if there wasn’t anybody to ask, after all Bow is in what is now known colloquially as the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets
You have shown your complete naivety about the whole subject with your comments to this week’s Hereford Times (scan attached to this post). You, Supt Hill, like me probably believe that attacking a person because of their race is wrong but with Islam we are dealing with an ideology not a race. You cannot choose not to be black or not to be white but you can choose your religion and your culture which is a big difference. Challenging Islam is NOT racism, whatever you may have been taught at Hendon or possibly Bramshill.
I deplore threats of violence, such as the threat to contaminate the land for the mosque, but the police might get a better haul of head banging hate-mongers, and be more usefully and profitably employed if they were to start investigating and prosecuting the far greater threats of violence promulgated by Islamic groups, and certain individuals from the Islamic community and their allies on the far left.
Supt Hill Chief of Herefordshire’s Territorial Policing Unit came out with the absolutely, for me, gobsmacking comment that the local police force would:”Vigorously support the fact that the Muslim community should have a community centre’
Since when was it part of the police regulations to actively and openly promote Islam or any other religion? Is this another example of one of Labour’s politicised police officers, paralysed by political correctness? A brief look at his biography shows me that he made most of his advancement during the Labour years. I’ll let you decide after reading the bio.
Superintendent Hill speaking to the Hereford Times added:”The police in Herefordshire have really good relations with minority groups and if you find yourself under attack for being part of a minority group then get in touch with the police’
So what about those members of the wider community including many minority groups who are historically often threatened by Islam, don’t they get protection? Don’t they get the soothing honeyed words? What about the Christians, the Jews, the Ex Muslims, the Hindus and everyone else for whom Islam isn’t just a different religion but instead is a clear and present danger? Where is your support for those citizens? Where is the special protection for them?
The police have made an appeal for information which on this occasion I hope is ignored, it should not be the police’s job to police the citizen’s speech unless there is a threat to kill. If they want threats to kill then they will find plenty of them coming from the Islamic community.
If for whatever reason ‘Mickey Mouse’ or ‘Donald Duck’ or even ‘Slartibartfast’ wishes to confess to the alleged ‘crime’ then the man to speak to is Detective Constable Dave Bentley on 0300 333 3000. I’m sure he would be most ready and willing to hear and act on your reports of Islamic crime hopefully better than the officers did in certain other cases where there were Islamic perpetrators of heinous crimes (see Rochdale and Charlene Downes links below).
On the subject of the newspaper articles, The Hereford Times shut down the debate (a copy of a fair bit of it is available on this blog) and has only put pro mosque letters into their letters page. The only pro mosque / community centre letter they could find was from someone in Birmingham last week and this week a guy called Patrick Walesby (a local undertaker possibly after a slice of the lucrative Islamic funeral business or again maybe just naive LOL -see below). I can imagine that a fair few of the anti mosque letters have been filed into the round filing cabinet on the newsroom floor.
Supt Hill, with your comments I really do think that you would be better off back in Traffic Division (or maybe Luton) and for this reason you are therefore my choice for ‘Useful Idiot of the Day’
Police officers such as this one make me trust the police less and less each day.
I would be grateful for a clarification from Superintendent Hill as to why he appears to be promoting the building of a mosque/Islamic community centre (same thing really) and whether or not that conflicts with a police officers duty to be as impartial as possible in the upholding of the law? Supt Hill’s comments about the proposed building struck me as anything but impartial however he ‘may’ have been misquoted, such things happen.
If you are unhappy with Superintendent Hill’s comments then please write him a polite letter of displeasure to the following address:

A police officer no matter how high up the career ladder is only a civilian with the power of arrest and is in the employ of the public and therefore their actions are a legitimate subject for discussion and question by other citizens.
