A Warning from History

I have returned to the UK where it is possible to watch proper documentaries, where the media is not controlled or even worse surrendered by sycophantic editors!

Well, there i was watching “The Nazis : A warning from History”. There were all the propaganda films of the thirties showing an affluent and thriving society, full of pride in itself and with an absolute ruler presiding over a castrated parliament. The affluent way of life was not built by the Third Reich. It was all put together on the back of slave labour! Sounds familiar?

These 'leaders' rule over a country where racism is a virtue for the Q8Ys

These 'leaders' rule over a country where racism seems to be a virtue for the Q8Ys

The final statement came from a radical German philosopher who had fought against the regime. If this could happen, then it could happen again!

OK, I do not believe that The Amir and his Ruling Family want to commit genocide [although they do not recognise Israel], but let’s face it all the development of buildings and the wealth of Q8Y society is based on slave labour, very poor and desperate economic migrants who are treated as no better than slaves…   constantly harassed by the police, prevented from driving…. packed in homes like tinned sardines…..

Suicides are becoming the norm

Today, I was reading the Kuwait Timladeshi maid…es when there were not one but two suicide attempts or should I say three. One I maid had set herself alight and sadly had died. Another maid had tried to kill herself last week, been taken to hospital and released back to the sponsor and tried again.

It's OK to abuse a filipino or bangladeshi maid as after all they were asking for it, weren't they?

What drives these ladies to such drastic action and why does it happen time and time again? Clearly, the problem is with the maids because it can not possibly be the fault of the Q8y sponsors. When will  somebody do something about these desperate women?

Apparently, the Church Of England in Kuwait tries to repatriate filipino maids by raising funds but of course the Q8 government step in. The Church will pay for flights back to Manila to find that the Q8 government always seems to find some way of preventing them flying and the money fro the flights  is lost.

I was told the other day about a filipino maid who was so badly beaten by her sponsor that she could only crawl after having her knees broken deliberately. Somehow, she managed to escape to a nearby house. The result, the offending sponsor family were banned from ever having another filipino maid…. but that does not mean they can not terrorise a Sri Lankan or Bangladeshi maid?

A Sad, Sad, Scene

I went to the airport the other day to meet my daughter who had flown out to see me here in Q8. 20 minutes before her plane arrived a flight from Chennai in India arrived. passengers were coming through the arrivals gate fro destinations such as Atlanta, Amsterdam, Riyadh etc. They all looked well and happy.

Then the Chennai flight passengers started coming through and suddenly a croc0dile of over fifty diminutive maids arrived, following immediately one after another. [I wish I could have taken a photo but the airport authorities do not approve!]. All were dressed in the maids outfits ie glorified pyjamas, carrying a small sports hold all bag with their Kuwait agency name emblazoned on it. They looked totally confused but it’s the life they are going to that is really frightening. many of them will be violently abused by their host Q8Y families, some will be raped by their so called sponsoring families and even by the sons of their sponsors, they will nearly all be verbally abused, have their passports stolen and tragically too many of them will commit suicide to escape their living hell.

A victim of sponsor violence

Nothing unusaual about this scene in Kuwait

If they are lucky they will receive their $150 per month pay but usually the agency and their sponsor family will invent charges to decimate any savings. They will be locked into tiny, windowless rooms when they are off duty. They will be treated like dirt by the very children of the lazy Q8Y mothers  who strut around spending and spending.
