UK GE10 | No solution forthcoming

1 05 2010

We know the problem that mass immigration causes, it is the solution the deluded are waiting for.  For decades the public mood has been fed by the Media Mandarins and sadly, many are still waiting for a ‘trusted’ face to stand up and say the obvious.

So long as we remain under political jurisdiction of the Soviet-style European Union, we will always be seen as the dumping ground for the world’s humanity. The people make the country.  Change the people, change the country.

Saw the following and thought it would be worth highlighting.  It is people like YOU who vote BNP.  If there is no shame in supporting an International Socialist Organisation such as Labour or the staunch Corporatist Conservatives, there should be no shame in supporting the British National Party this election.  I still think it is shameful to vote Liberal Democrats though, a party full of sexual deviants and perverted policies should never be encouraged.

The great disconnect: After the economy, immigration is the issue that worries voters most. So why won’t our politicians even discuss it?

Ridiculous!’ spat Gordon Brown at Gillian Duffy’s comments on immigration in what he thought was the privacy of his car. So what is the truth? How great is the gulf between what politicians say and what really concerns the majority of people?

Having spent the past few weeks speaking to countless ordinary people, I can report that the gulf is very great indeed – something I call The Great Disconnect – and that, after the economy, immigration is THE issue that worries people most.

The People

This is not some random theory. It’s based on the experiences of real people. People like Dave, who I recently met in a cafe in Hastings, East Sussex.

Dave is 22, with cropped hair and a diamond stud in one ear. He yearns for a ‘decent job’ and a home for his girlfriend and baby daughter. Like over half of young white males from a poor background, Dave has trouble with reading. It means he is only qualified for a menial job.

Thirty years ago, he would have still got work in a factory, married his girlfriend, raised a family and contributed to society. Now, those factory jobs no longer exist and menial jobs are monopolised by skilled and hard-working Poles who have not suffered the handicap of a British state education.

This means that Dave, like one in five of young people, cannot get on that first step of the employment ladder.

He explains: ‘When the council advertised two dustmen jobs, there were 100 applications.’

The local job agencies told him he had no chance because he was English. They only took Poles on to their books. When Dave finally did manage to secure a job, he encountered another problem facing young people – our welfare system hands out more in benefits than can be earned on the minimum wage.

The Centre for Social Justice has pointed out that welfare claimants are no better off – and sometimes poorer – if they come off the dole and take up jobs paying anything less than £15,000 a year.

But who is going to offer Dave that kind of money? That’s why the financial adviser at Dave’s Job Centre actually told him not to take the job he had been offered.

‘I would have been £30 worse off,’ he says.

Dave described his despair at the prospect of a life on benefits. ‘I know men of 40 doing nothing but drink and drugs all day. I don’t blame them.’ He shook his head angrily. ‘I don’t want to be beat like that.’

Dave’s situation is far from unique. There are currently 5.9million people of working age claiming out-of-work benefits – costing £74.4billion a year in welfare payments.

The life of this young man has not been wrecked by disadvantage – but by government policy on immigration, education and welfare.

Nor does it end there. Because of immigration, the lack of jobs for the likes of Dave has a direct impact on the rising numbers of single mothers and thus the increase in child poverty – another burden for the taxpayer.

New research by Geoff Dench for the Centre For Policy Studies (CPS) describes the change in single motherhood.

Thirty years ago, a typical single mother was on her own because she had separated from her partner. Now, more than half say they have never lived with a man. And, once more, male joblessness – to which mass immigration has contributed – is at the heart of the issue.

‘I would love to get married,’ a single mother in Brixton told me during my own research.

‘But all the men I know are in prison or deal drugs. I don’t know one man with a job.’

Instead, she has married the State – she’s one of the millions dependant on welfare. The statistics tell their own story: 72 per cent of children of single mothers grow up in poverty.

Children of single mothers are more likely to run away from home, have behavioural problems, do less well at school, take to drugs and get involved in – and society picks up the bill.

This is why the electorate is right to be exercised by these issues.

They understand better than our political elite the relationship between immigration, male joblessness, child poverty and an exploding benefit bill.

It is only in this context that the full, devastating toll of the Labour government’s immigration policy is exposed. Instead of getting young men like Dave into work, the Government has done the opposite.

Under Labour, immigration has risen dramatically. In 2007, more than half a million migrants arrived in this country – more than one a minute.

According to the Office for National Statistics, of the 1.7 million new jobs created since 1997, 81 per cent have gone to foreign workers. These are extraordinary figures.

Behind them lie wrecked lives and a continuing cycle of disadvantage and child poverty.

As one exasperated man asked: ‘Why are we not training our young people to be as skilled and educated as the immigrants now taking their place?’ What a transformation to society if we did.

Why, then, is none of our political parties offering radical solutions? The answer is, they are fearful of being branded ‘bigots’ – just like Gillian Duffy recently was.

Yet the immigration crisis has nothing to do with class, colour or religious background. During one week of my research, a white chef, a black manicurist and an Iranian minicab driver all voiced fears to me about the new influx of immigrants.

Racism is so last century

What they fear is not so much the foreignness of these incomers, but his or her rights to share their welfare benefits – because they know that they are a limited resource.

They cannot – or rather, should not – be for everybody. After a year working in this country, certain EU migrants qualify for the full range of benefits enjoyed by a UK citizen.

Which is why an unemployed Pole explained to me that he is hardly likely to return home if he finds himself out of work. Not when benefits in Poland are half what they are in Britain.

Politicians treat the welfare state as if it is an elastic band, able to stretch to fit all newcomers. They have not appreciated a fact understood by the ordinary voter: this elastic band has a painful twang.

The Cost of Enrichment

One person’s gain is another’s loss. And this loss is being felt right across Britain’s overstretched public services.

For example, one school I visited used to boast an excellent initiative for its white working-class boys – the lowest achieving group in the country. The boys responded enthusiastically.

Even so, the scheme had to be scrapped. The number of immigrant children arriving in that school had shot up in two years from 0 per cent to 10 per cent of the school population.

Money and time spent on those local boys now had to go on language lessons for the new arrivals. Nor is this a unique case. The Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration has found that councils around the country are struggling to cope with a surge of applications to primary schools ‘as a direct result of mass immigration’.

Local authorities in parts of London, the West Midlands and south-west England were forced to install mobile classrooms and educate children in church halls last year because of the shortage of space.

One caller to a recent radio phone-in described the choice facing her daughter in their West London catchment area – one school where one-third of the pupils are refugees, one school where up to a quarter have learning difficulties and one school where Arabic is the first language.

There is an excellent Church of England school, but that is monopolised by middle-class families.

International Health Service

Then, there is the effect immigration has had on the NHS. Of course emergency treatment should be available to anyone in this country. But immigration has placed an intolerable pressure on healthcare.

First, it is the sheer numbers of people who have become entitled to treatment – not only those on work permits and student visas of more than six months, but their dependents, too.

Anyone – ranging from a grandmother, parent or spouse – that an immigrant student or worker can support is entitled to free healthcare. To make matters worse, a large number of immigrants come from countries where TB, hepatitis B and HIV are endemic.

They are contagious, life-threatening diseases. HIV and hepatitis B require expensive treatment for life.

A shocking 70 per cent of all cases of TB occur in immigrants, at an estimated cost to the NHS of £42million a year. And 95 per cent of all new cases of hepatitis B in this country came from abroad.

HIV, too, has become a disease that is affecting one part of the community far more than others.

As one doctor in a sexual health clinic remarked, ’95 per cent of our patients are now heterosexual and from Africa’.

Faced with this unprecedented demand on resources, doctors complained in a report to Parliament that all patients were waiting ‘unacceptably long’.

Yet the NHS makes little attempt to check if people are entitled to free healthcare, as I discovered when I spent a morning sitting with the A&E receptionist of an inner-city hospital.

Receptionists are supposed to ask every new patient if they have lived in the UK for more than 12 months. But few I witnessed bothered.

One official, whose job it is to try to recoup payment from those not entitled to free care, admitted: ‘Half of my receptionists feel uncomfortable asking where a patient has come from.’ I told him: ‘I bet, though, that they wouldn’t feel awkward standing at Gatwick Airport, for example, and handing £1,000 to every foreign visitor?’ ‘No, they would not!’

An A&E manager pointed out: ‘Relatives of families already living here fly over and use their uncle or cousin’s address to gain free NHS care. Some with chronic conditions come backwards and forwards on six-month visas for treatment. The abuse is blatant.’

A second A&E manager explained the consequences: ‘At the same time as so much money is being spent on treating foreigners, I can’t afford to take on more nurses or even an extra porter because there is not enough in the kitty. It’s a can of worms that no one wants to deal with.’

Indeed it is. But the problems caused by immigration do not stop with its effect on employment, schooling and healthcare.

Social Housing

Social housing is another area of tension. Like welfare payments, social housing is a scarce resource. The number of council homes has actually decreased from 4.4 million to 3.9million in the past ten years.

Over the same period, immigration has added three million to the population. Yet the Government has made no provision for this increase. The result is predictable. The waiting list for social housing has shot up in the six years to 2008 by 80 per cent.

By 2011, an estimated two million will be waiting for a council home. According to the pressure group MigrationWatch, the proportion of foreign-born people in social housing has increased by 54 per cent.

This is because qualification for social housing is based on need – and this is often judged by the size of families. Families with more children get higher priority – regardless of how long they’ve lived in the community. According to the Office for National Statistics, women born in Pakistan and now living in the UK have an average of 4.7 children.

Ethnic cleansing

Mothers born in the UK have on average just 1.6. This is the reason why social housing appears to favour recent immigrants. What all this has done to communities is clear from a report from the Young Foundation – a Left-leaning group who repeated a social study they had first conducted in Bethnal Green, East London, 50 years ago.

In 2006 they returned to the area and were taken aback by the changes. A social housing policy, introduced in the Seventies on the basis of ‘need’, had replaced the white working-class family structures with Bangladeshi families.

Instead of living close to their parents, white families had to move out to Essex, where social housing was available. I saw the effects of this government policy when I visited a primary school in the area.

On the wall hung school photos, past and present. There was one glaring difference.

All the children 50 years ago were white. All the children in the recent photo were not.

Where had the descendants of those white children gone, I wondered? In another country, one would presume some terrible ethnic cleansing had taken place. In the UK, it goes by another name – multiculturalism.

The Scapegoat and the Perpetrator

It is certainly not the immigrants themselves who are to blame – the majority have come here to work and are contributing to this country – it is the sheer numbers who have been allowed in thanks to New Labour’s border policy.

The Reason

What’s worse, as a Freedom of Information request recently uncovered, this policy was implemented in the hope that it would have a direct political benefit to Labour, since first-generation immigrants are more likely to vote with the Left.

In other words, Labour has put party interests above the very people it is meant to represent – the working-class voters, like Gillian Duffy, who were once the backbone of the Labour movement.

Yet not one of the party leaders has been prepared to raise immigration during the election campaign – and when the three party leaders tackled the issue during Thursday night’s TV debate, there was very little honesty.

Otherwise, all debate about this profoundly important issue has been stifled. In this political vacuum, radio phone-ins and online forums are one of the few outlets where open discussion on immigration is taking place.

Take the following contribution to a newspaper website discussion. ‘Why am I anxious about being English in England? Maybe it’s because I feel my culture no longer exists

‘It has been replaced by a concoction of foreign cultures, of which English is only a small part. Maybe it’s because it makes me feel my culture has no worth or place any more. Like it’s illegitimate. Someone has to do something.’

No doubt Gordon Brown would dismiss the author as a Right-wing bigot. In fact, it was left by a Guardian reader.

Plastic Politicians

The solution to our problems will not be forthcoming from the Perpetrators.  The Houses of Parliament is Operation HQ for the Detestables and so a clear out is needed of all the EU Stooge Parties.  An opposition cowered by baseless accusations of racism and xenophobia is either incompetent or complicit, either way, they are not fit for purpose.

Conservatives want Change.  Liberal Democrats want Change.  Labour think you’re all bigots for opposing Change.  Yet not one opposes the Eunification project, and until they do, the only Changes the EU Stooge Parties will allow will be EU approved ones.

Multiculturalism, Diversity and pacifism is the approved Change vigorously promoted by the European Commissioners.  Every bill, directive and treaty oozes with marxist-inspired politically-correct mumbo-jumbo that can exonerate or demonize on the basis of skin and thought.

I put my Nation first due to the simple fact that this is my home, not out of some false sense of superiority but because the demise of my beloved will mean an end to a large part of my heritage.  I do not fix up my neighbours home when my own is suffering the foolmanship of corrupted Parliamentarian tampering.  And I especially do not concern myself with the woes of the world when my own section of Earth is becoming smaller.

Patriotism and Nationalism are dirty words because the Internationalist Institutions who control Earth paint them so.

A thousand problems caused from Governmental Actions that will somehow justify more Governmental Intervention leading to more problems.

Isn’t life grand?
