“HMT Empire Windrush”; originally “MV Monte Rosa”, was a passenger liner and cruise ship, launched in Germany 1930s and used as a German Navy Troopship during World War ll captured by the British and renamed. The Empire Windrush; is best remembered today for bringing one of the first large groups of post-war West Indian immigrants to the United Kingdom, carrying 1027 passengers consisting of adults, children and two stowaways on a voyage from Jamaica to London on 22nd June 1948, arriving at Tilbury Docks in Essex”. (HMT means Hired Military Transport (not currently in use)

Others didn’t always have a straight journey from the West Indies as they, first would have to dock at Spain/Italy and then continue being shipped onto England. Our parents, grandparents and great grandparents, came to England as part of the ‘Commonwealth’; between 1945 to 1960’s, when called by their Queen, to assist in rebuilding and making ‘Britain Great Again’, yes way before Trump had is grand scheme of things.
It was hard for all these adults to endure the abuses, violence and at times deaths whilst working for far less than their uneducated white colleagues due to the class system at that time. Yet these; Musicians, Cooks, University Students, Aviators, Farmers, ex-soldiers, Nurses, Doctors, agriculturalist, Shop Keepers, Tea Workers, Train Drivers, Librarians, Secretaries, Book Keepers, Manufactures, Mechanics etc. ‘put up’ with being treated as dumb ‘tree swingers’ and accepted work as Sewage Workers, Street Sweepers, Cleaners the list is endless. Some eventually gained work in Coal Mining, illegal sweat shops, working on the docks without protective clothing, on buses or for the Railways at times loading on an off large parcels and letters by hand in dark, cold, harsh, back braking environments at night to name a few.
These Black proud swarve people of colour, left their beautiful homes to ‘mould invested expensive hovels, they changed into liveable sanctuaries’; they persevered and gained respect, raised themselves up through hard work, tenacity to fight and adapt within their new ‘hostile’ environment, whilst ensuring their children, stayed safe, had a future, respect and a place to call home or so they thought.
England like other developing countries watched a lot of films like ‘Tarzan’ and others that depicted Black People in demeaning or comical roles because of the ‘class system’ that was still in place at these times.
The working class were not informed properly about the ‘new workforce’s’ role within their society, communities and the fact they had been taught to speak the ‘Queen’s English ’better than England’s own poor citizens.
West Indians had been invited to come to Britain, due to a Labour shortage after the Second World War and without hesitation; they boarded the ‘Windrush’ because England needed help and they felt, it was their home to belong.
To be discriminated against was a shock to many, which they had not been prepared for; some returned to the West Indies, but many remained – despite the difficulties they faced.
THEY HAD WORKED HARD and MADE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE BRITISH
(Cheap Labour for British Citizenship)
HOW THE HOME OFFICE GOT AWAY WITH IT SEVENTY ONE YEARS LATER
In April 2018; information came back out, informing the general public, if anyone born in the United Kingdom or a British Colony before 1st January 1983.
It suddenly, became the responsibility of all Windrush individuals to prove, they are and have been British Citizens in the UK before 1st January 1973; when the 1971 Immigration Act came into full force.
The key clause of the 1999 Legislation; providing Immigration protection of all Commonwealth Citizens from ever being ‘forcibly’ removed was purposely ‘deleted’ from the 2014 Immigration Act.
The Windrush Children, Adults and General Public of the UK were never consulted or informed by the Government beforehand of the potential harm to their citizenship, this deliberate act would cause.
Glyn Williams Director General, Border Immigration and Citizenship System at the Home Office, acting Permanent Secretary speaking: Mr Williams explained on 15 May 2018: I did not know when I gave you that evidence on 25 April 2018 as follows:
LEAKED MEMO 2018
Prepared June 2018 by Hugh Ind, Director General, Home Office’s Immigration Enforcement agency, sent to Amber Rudd and Brandon Lewis, immigration minister, and several Senior Civil Servants also Special Advisers.
FACT: They all knew and we have witnessed the aftermath of their decision; to remove with prejudice and in line with the above, the Windrush Citizens, denied any legal rights, forcibly detained and then deported by the UK Home Office under Sajid Javid (BAME)
Home Secretary Sajid Javid has purposely mislead the general public and the Jamaica Prime Minister by claiming all deportees were all convicted of very serious crimes; like “Rape, Murder, Firearms Offences and Drug-Trafficking” under a hostile environment protocol.
“Feeding on the fears of the Public to diminish and distract them; from giving their support and or expressing their outrage” so far it has worked and is still working.
THE FEARED WINDRUSH CRIMINALS
Let me help you, understand, these dangerous criminals with the support of the official breaking down of the crimes; committed by the deportees:
All the above; have “served” their sentences totalling 150 years for 28 men and 1 woman.
THE FATE of OWEN HAISLEY & OTHERs:
Tuesday 5th February 2019
It is however possible that the Home Office will still try to deport him and those who remain at Harmondsworth IRC Detention Centre in the short term; quietly.
Wednesday 6th February 2019
Desmond Jadoo, the Chair of the Windrush Movement UK, will try to meet as many of the recent deportees, to give any help and advice.
If the Deportees have no relatives to stay with in Jamaica, according to Mr Oswald Dawkins a Jamaican Official in charge of several Housing Charities.
The Jamaican high commissioner Seth Ramacon has called for a halt to the deportations from UK of the Windrush British Citizens, until the Home Office has published its investigation into the Windrush scandal
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness, said he accepted Theresa Mays apology of threatening to deport Windrush British Citizens from the UK; at a meeting; No10 in April 2018 with other Caribbean leaders of the Commonwealth. - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-43792411
When the Prime Minister realised he had been duped, subjected to a lie, why was his voice silent, why did he not tell Sajid Javid there would be No Entry into Jamaica for any UK Deportees, they would no longer cooperate with UK charter flights under any circumstance?
Is it because in Jamaica; he has already thrown in the towel having accepted?
So why would the Jamaican Prime Minister out of all the Commonwealth Leaders of the Caribbean, not stop the Uk Deportees plane from every landing on Jamaican soil, what has stopped them from rising up, showing some support? There has to be a reason, the Jamaican Prime Minister, his Government and others before have just rolled over for their “bellies to be rubbed” by accepting UK Deportees without checking the validity of their sentences; could it be that:
If, I am wrong and you were fooled, explain to all of us in England, especially those deported or still under threat of deportation; why you have not reached out and protected them and why you haven’t started to RETURN ALL DEPORTEES BACK TO UK?
THE WEEKs THAT WAS:- NEWS THAT DISTRACTED AND BURIED, THE “PLIGHT” OF THE WINDRUSH DEPORTEES BETWEEN:
5th February 2019 - Liam Neeson New York film premiere CANCELLED at just hours' notice after actor's race. Liam Neeson’s 40 year old admission of being in a revengeful place when young and wanting to find the ‘black bastard’ who raped his female friend; caused the media to go into meltdown, they were joined by Race Relation pundits, Actors, Comedians, Talk Show Hosts, Singers and Politicians even Question Time, Gripping the entire country and by Saturday 9th February 2019 the ‘Taken’ was back on prime time TV and his film ‘Cold Pursuit’ was available to be watched, imagine that. The passion showed here for his comment became the first distraction, pouring cold water, expressing a real lack of support for the real ‘Taken Victims’, the Windrush Generation Deportees. Also: BRIXIT, Paedophile gang given 1M Legal Aid, Man sentenced for the death of 100 year old woman, breakaway MPs create a new group against BREXIT to name a few and then:
20 February 2019 - The fall of ISIS, Shamima Begum wanted to return home to have her child, the Home secretary Sajid Javid, decided to go one step further by revoking Shamima’s ‘British Citizen’ under ‘Public outrage’. This has never happen before, to a British born subject, which came as a surprise to many. Unfortunately, it only shows what powers the Home Office have and will use to prevent an individual from living or returning to UK and Sajid Javid (BAME) already tested this out on the Windrush Deportees without much fuss.
Now everyone understands why they should have been more ‘vocal’; concerning the Jamaican Windrush Generation, who did not have the privilege of being sent a letter, just removed. Is it because it was hyped as a ‘Black thing’ and now it is the Muslim Windrush Generation under threat, whose next, all jailed British Citizens or is this just another distraction?
13th February 2019 - Buried Story Jamaica should follow India recently declined to sign up to; a bilateral agreement with Britain to facilitate or ‘smooth the path’ for the return of its illegal immigrants, following unresolved issues that are still in negotiation.
EUROPEAN VIOLENT CRIMINALS BEFORE AND WHILE BREXIT IS ONGOING; HAVE NEVER BEEN DEPORTED ON MASS AND ARE ALLOWED TO STAY IN THE UK: HELPED WITH LEGAL AID, BAIL AND ARE ALLOWED BACK TO THEIR HOMES, AFTER SERVING THEIR SENTENCES!
