Cru chief in online political call

Cru Investments chief executive Jon Maguire has begun a website calling for a new political party for “British people who care about Britain”.

Www.realitypolitics.com acts as a forum for Maguire’s controversial views on immigration, foreign policy, religion and homosexuality.

Maguire describes multi-culturalism as “daft” and cites Enoch Powell’s river of blood speech from the 1960s.

He says: “Enoch Powell spoke in the 1960s of ‘rivers of blood’ descending on the United Kingdom as a disastrous attempt at cultural integration. He was both wrong and terribly correct and the result is that the blood of British children is not only being shed in the underground and buses of London but also in imaginary places such as Afghanistan and Iraq.”

He calls for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq and Afghanistan but proposes a “hit and hurt” system of using a military response if any British citizen is harmed overseas. He also hits out at the Church of England and homosexuality.
