|September 28, 2012||Filled under Campaigns, Debate, Humber PCC elections, Politics|
‘HATE CRIME’ is a notion that will be challenged says Godfrey Bloom, Candidate for the Humberside Police & Crime Commissioner role. He says: “I will not allow pressure groups or minorities to get priority.”
Godfrey Bloom is the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) candidate for the Police Commissioner Role. He is a Member of the European Parliament representing UKIP, and is the latest candidate to publish an election statement on HU12 Online.
On announcing his candidacy Godfrey Bloom expressed the view that the job of the police had been diminished by political interference and political correctness. Hate crime he believes is a notion that arises from this: “If a Pakistani owns a newsagent and he is attacked, he will get priority from my police because he has been a victim of a violent crime, not because he is part of a minority and not discriminate against any group regardless of colour, sexuality or religion.”
Godfrey Bloom has already received lots of media because of his views which include banning speed cameras, to press for the abolition of the Human Rights Act and to campaign for the return of the death penalty for child, serial and police killers. He continues these themes on his election statement as well as highlighting rural crime and retail crime as priority issues.
