‘We are stronger for it – and I love Britain for it. It gives us access to new ideas, new perspectives, new energies.’ These are the words spoken by Ed Miliband in response to the news that white Britons are now a minority population in London, their ancestral city. We should of course not be surprised by this comment as Miliband was part of the New Labour project to demographically transform London and England through mass immigration. The very idea that Ed Miliband, New Labour and large sections of the media can celebrate whites being reduced to minority status in their own city, however, is of course scandalous in the extreme. No other population group in history has voluntarily and actively sought to reduce themselves to ethnic minority status in their own homeland. This is because all previous populations throughout history knew only too well that once territory is conceded to foreign populations it spelt the end for them.
Let’s examine the latest census data that seems to have the liberal left multiculturalists engaged in a collective orgasm of joy. Just 44.9% of Londoners are white British according to the Census data for 2011. 7.5 million residents of England and Wales were foreign born in 2011 and less than 90% of the country is white for the first time ever. In 2011 the number of foreign born, made up 13 per cent, or one in eight of the population. More worryingly still the proportion of Muslims rose from 3.0 per cent to 4.8 per cent. None of these figures include those who are here illegally so the situation is actually worse than the official figures would have us believe. London’s ethnic make-up is now as follows: White British 44.9%
Other white 14.9%
Mixed race 5%
How has this demographic transformation happened? We can of course go back to the post war period and identify the factors that gave rise to the immigration flows from the 1950s. However I dealt with this in my previous article: ‘The demographic transformation of Britain.’ Here I want to focus on the emergence of New Labour under Tony Blair in 1997. It was Tony Blair’s New Labour party that really fuelled mass immigration between the years 1997 and 2010. During this period more immigrants came to this country than did the immigration flows into Britain between the period 1066 and 1997. It is New Labour that must be held primarily responsible for the demographic transformation of London in such a short period of time and the subsequent reducing of whites to minority status as an ethnic group. Indeed Andrew Neather, a former New Labour advisor to Tony Blair and David Blunkett, recently admitted that this mass inflow of immigrants was a deliberate New Labour policy to make Britain more multicultural. He stated that Labour’s relaxation of immigration controls was a deliberate plan to ‘open up the U.K. to mass immigration.’ Of course these mealy mouthed multiculturalists refused to discuss this openly at the time for fear of alienating their ‘core working class vote’. This seems odd given their belief that we are all enriched by hoards of people from the Third World living amongst us! Neather, uncharacteristically for a labour politician, is honest about the reasons for this mass influx of people from the Third World. He states; ‘I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date’. So one of the main reasons why 3 million immigrants arrived on these shores during the time Labour were in office was because they wanted to make a political and ideological point to those of us who do not support the multiracial and multicultural experiment. They had no mandate for this demographic transformation and simply labelled anxious moderate voices as racist when concerns were raised about the consequences of this policy. They have shown the utmost contempt for the people of this country as well as a reckless arrogance and conceit. They should hang their heads in shame! However as we can see from the response to the 2011 Census data, Miliband is excited by our dispossession. In fact he loves Britain all the more for it!
So what have been the results of this mass inflow of people from the rest of the world? Let’s briefly examine just a few of the consequences of Labours mass immigration policy: Education. Our schools have been unable to cope with the rapidly increasing numbers of children needing school places so class sizes have increased. Many of these new arrivals cannot speak a word of English so interpreters and specialist language teachers have had to be brought in at the tax payers’ expense. Indigenous children have fallen behind in their language development as teachers, already stretched, have had to concentrate their efforts on teaching the new arrivals English. In the boroughs of many inner cities white children have become minorities in the schools that their families have used for generations. These children can forget about being taught their history and culture as the local curriculum begins to reflect the cultural heritage of the new arrivals. The evidence is strongly suggestive that British school children in many of the inner city schools have experienced a fall in educational standards as a direct result of schools not being able to cope with large numbers of non-English speaking foreign pupils.
Environment: Immigrants of course need to be housed so we are seeing further encroachments into the countryside for mass house building programmes. Planning Minister Nick Boles blames Labour’s immigration policies for the fact that ‘large swathes of the countryside must be concreted over for housing’ Mr Bowles further stated that: ‘The population of England has gone up by three million during the last 10 years. These people now live here, these people are now British and they need homes just like British people’. Indeed Mr Bowles and the fact is that 43 per cent of the new households which need a home are accounted for by immigration! Guess who is going to pay for these new homes? Here’s a clue. It won’t be the immigrants themselves. The lack of affordable housing to buy has meant an increase in rents making life difficult for young couple who can’t afford to buy. The demand for social housing has reached crisis point and many British people are pushed to the back of the queue as priority is given to those with large families. The destruction of our countryside however is a major concern as new towns and cities will be located in some of the most beautiful parts of the country. 50 % of these new homes will be for immigrants.
Welfare: The demands on the welfare system in the U.K. and the National Health Service are so great that things simply cannot go on as they are. Thousands of people are in receipt of benefits who have never contributed a single penny into the system. The Muslim population and particularly the Somali, Bangladeshi and Pakistani communities are a net drain on these services and are supported by the beleaguered indigenous population. The NHS is under increasing strain as it treats more and more foreign born who have not contributed to the cost of running the system. Our hospitals and schools have again recently been flooded by Eastern Europeans who have made no contribution whatsoever to the costs of the services they receive.
Islam: Many of our cities have now become Islamic enclaves as many Muslims have taken the decision to self-segregate from mainstream society. Enoch Powell once remarked, ‘There are at this moment parts of this town which have ceased to be part of England, except that they are situated within it geographically’ No more is this true for places like Bradford, Oldham, Leicester and Birmingham. Literally dozens of boroughs within our major cities are now lost to Islam. Forty per cent of Muslims surveyed said that they backed Sharia in parts of Britain. Twenty per cent felt sympathy with the July 7 bombers’ motives and one per cent felt the attacks were right. Given the numbers of Muslims now living in the U.K. these figures are terrifying. These are the people who mock and abuse our troops, who burn poppies and insult our war dead. These are the people who threaten to kill us if we dare criticise their barbaric religion and these are the people, with the support of the liberal elite, who are poisoning the minds of our children in primary and secondary schools with a sanitised version of Islam thus disarming our young people of the dangers that they will inevitably face from Islam as they get older.
General: There are of course many other ‘benefits’ brought over by the new arrivals in the form of crime, disease and backward cultures that are better suited to the 7th century: Africans killing their children because they are ‘witches’, honour killings, terrorism and parasitic Muslim preachers of hate are some of the other delights that the people of this country have been blessed with. My heart goes out to our older people who have seen their communities changed beyond recognition in their lifetimes. What must they think? How must they feel? They have been abandoned and left alone to rot in inner city hell holes without the comfort of their people or culture to support them in their old age.
Walk through any of the inner London boroughs now and you will observe that English people are conspicuous by their absence. All I hear when I walk through the culturally enriched areas of parts of north London are eastern European languages and a host of other unrecognisable dialects. London has become a modern version of the Tower of Babel! Our inner cities are increasingly becoming Third World ghettoes and unfortunately too many of them are becoming increasingly Islamic in character. Sometimes I just have to stop whilst walking through these areas and pinch myself. I have to remind myself that I am living in London and that I am not on some exotic holiday in the Sudan. The above discussion only deals with some of the results of Labours mass immigration policy but I think that we can conclude that much damage had been done to our country and our people. In contrast to the feelings that Ed Miliband expresses I personally believe that Britain is weaker not stronger because of multiculturalism. Unlike him I don’t love it; I hate it. Let me share some of my personal feelings with you on this. I hope you will indulge me for a while.
I no longer recognise the London I grew up in; the city that I was proud of and emotionally attached to, my ancestral city, with its rich heritage and wonderful history. It has been taken away from me and other indigenous folk and given to foreigners. It’s theirs now and there is no point pretending otherwise. Living in London has become a nightmare for many of us and for me personally. We are no longer with our own people; we have become strangers in our own lands. We are exposed to alien cultures that are unfamiliar to us. I hear languages that are not my own. If I use public transport I don’t see or hear many English people. I feel left out and on the margins, peripheral to the social activities going on around me. I cannot relate to people in my community because they are not my people. Sometimes I feel awkward because I am only one of a few whites in a pub that is no longer frequented by White people and I feel that I am intruding in a place that is no longer there for people like me. To feel like this in my own city and in my own country does not enrich me. I have nothing to celebrate but my own dispossession. I know that many others feel this way too and that’s the only consolation that I have. In this respect I’m not alone!
Culture is very important for groups because it gives them meaning and structure. It gives them rules and guidelines to live by. It’s shared so it gives rise to the familiar and enables us to feel comfortable in our geographical space with others like us. There is however very little of the familiar left for those of us stuck in the multicultural ghettoes of inner London. We are surrounded by the unfamiliar and the stranger. We are forced to live in the midst of those who despise us and treat us with contempt, those who hate our society and way of life. So I cannot agree with Ed Balls and the advocates of the destruction of my heritage and culture that Britain is a stronger place because whites are a minority in London and soon to be a minority in the whole country. I sincerely hope that one day Mr Balls and all the criminals and traitors in the three major parties have to give an account of themselves to the people of this country for what that have done to us; to me. I can promise that the penalty for this treason will be of the harshest kind.
