Britain at Risk

Details from the 2011 Census have just come out making for interesting reading.The population of England & Wales is now 56 million of which 7 million+ were born outside the UK making White British just 80% of the population and indeed London now has only 45% White British.

Now those figures are, to me, concerning enough but let us add to that the British born children of those originating from outside the UK plus the countless numbers (hence no stats) of illegal immigrants and those who did not fill in the forms at all. The rapid dilution of the indigenous British puts at severe risk our very culture and accepted way of life.

I am no isolationist but I believe we are a unique and special group of Nations and islands and so also believe the time has come to say enough.

Un-British?

Damian Green the minister for immigration has said that to pass a law banning the wearing of the burkha would be ‘un-British. He said “Telling people what they can and can’t wear, if they’re just walking down the street, is a rather un-British thing to do.”

Perhaps it’s me but I don’t see anything British about women, either by choice or being forced into it by their husbands, walking down a British street covered head to toe in a black cloth with just a slit to see out of. I don’t, either, see anything British about about one rule for one section of our society and another rule for others. If, for example, I am wearing my motorcycle helmet I will not be allowed into a bank or into most Post Offices along with most city shopping malls.

UPDATE: Syria ( a very islamic country you would agree) has banned veils from it’s universities.

European Islamic Community

I think it’s fair to say that we as a nation and indeed a large part of Europe have become all but paralysed by political correctness. Although our eyes see and our ears hear what is happening all around us most of us unconsciously self censor this information. Those that do recognise what is transforming our country and speak out run a great risk of being accused of racisism. The blight of pc is all pervading, preventing truth from seeping out beneath it’s repressive fog.

I believe in the equality of all human beings and appreciate and enjoy the rich diversity of the various traditions and I am certainly no apologist for the BNP  or any other racist group. I also enjoy and appreciate the traditions of my own country, England and of neighbouring Wales, Scotland and Ireland, linking to make the UK. The historic connection with the near countries of western Europe are also a cultural link that I appreciate.

Blowing away for a moment the mist of political correctness then we will see that all that I love of my country and it’s heritage are fast being lost and indeed will probably be lost forever. Huge and rapid immigration of muslims mainly from the Indian sub continent but also from Africa are swamping the British identity. Western white Europeans are breeding at a rate approximating to 1.8 children per couple, in other words they are not replacing themselves and so the indigenous population is falling. Not so with the immigrant families who replicate at a rate of between 4 and 8 children per couple, in other words, they more than double themselves and even quadruple themselves.

Again rub the pc dust from our eyes and do a little mathematics and we’ll find that in about 50 years time muslims will be the majority population of not only the UK but also of Europe. The Islamic European Community is far from unlikely it is almost a certainty.  What a legacy to leave to perhaps not our children but certainly to our  grandchildren.

The best that we can do now is to close our borders to all further immigration and slow up the inevitable. We can only do this if we force our way though the mist and murk of political correctness.

Gurkha Victory but…

Joanna Lumley,  ably assisted by the media, who love a good story have won the right for ex Gurkhas and their families to live in the UK. Although against the wishes of the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, Parliament voted in favour of the then proposal with the result that the P.M. has today announced agreement.

Undoubtedly this is a democratically arrived at decision and the power of the people has in this instance prevailed which I for one applaud although not agreeing with the decision. However, the UK will now be saddled with an estimated up to £5bn in the costs of the expected additional immigrants and further expenditure as the years roll by. So, what to do? My advice to Gordon Brown, although I very much doubt he will take it, is to disband the Gurkha Regiment as soon as practically possible. This will prevent rolling immigration, save a whole heap of money and should there be a shortage of troops then we can get our noses out of someone else’s country and save some lives as well.

Gurkhas Vote

Yesterday Parliament voted down the Government’s proposals on granting certain ex members of the Gurkha Regiment the right to residency in the UK. Needless to say the opposition parties leaped at this opportunity to bash the government and Gordon Brown in particular.

The vote was an emotional vote and not one based on commonsense and a grasp of reality. Just take a step back and see the situation for what it really is. The Gurkhas sign up to a contract to fight if necessary for the perceived needs of the UK and in return they are paid an agreed sum. At the end of their term of service they receive an agreed pension. That is the end of our obligation to what are in effect mercenaries. Post 1997 a part of the agreement is indeed a right to UK residency which will be honoured.

The likely result of this emotional vote is a further influx of immigrants into this already overcrowded island at a probable cost of £2bn. We have a right to expect our politicians to think things through clearly, dispassionately and leave emotions outside the debating chamber.

England O My England

Yesterday in Luton the East Anglian regiment marched through the town on it’s return from active service in Iraq. They were met by Muslim protesters waving banners saying ‘Anglian Regiment Go to Hell’ and shouts of “Anglian Soldiers: Butchers of Basra” and “Anglian Soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists”.  Now Freethinkeruk is no supporter of the Iraq invasion nor our involvement in Afghanistan but I support our military personnel as individuals who are merely pawns in this political game.

A friend of mine has recently suffered the loss of her 40 year old son who lived in Leicester. She has to wait for three weeks before the cremation can take place. This is an awfully long time for anyone to wait to begin the process of closure. So why is it such a long wait? The undertaker explained that Muslims get priority as their religion requires quick burial or cremation because of the health risks in the heat of the sun. What sun here in late winter in the UK? Don’t we also have fridges for any delay? Why should Muslims get priority in this sad matter or any other?

Anyone who knows me would confirm that I am neither a racist nor a bigot but in these ridiculous politically correct times I run the risk of being called or thought as such simply for speaking my mind and so beit. We, or rather successive governments, are giving away our nation. We changed our anti cruelty to animals laws to allow Halal meat, we have allowed mass immigration to swamp many of our ancient towns and cities, we spend a fortune on schemes to supposedly integrate Asians in the main into our society.

It is time to say enough is enough. Further mass immigration halted, no more concessions to culture or religions. A statement must be made clear that this is our country and you are welcome provided that you fit in with us and if you don’t wish to do so then don’t come here.
