Skip to comments.UK: A country wrecked by unlimited immigration
Posted on 10/27/2007 10:14:11 AM PDT by knighthawk
One of the most telling points in the excellent piece in yesterday's Daily Telegraph by my colleague Jeff Randall, on the dishonesty of government statistics, was to do with immigration.
Slough says it has so many immigrants it needs more money: the Government says it hasn't. For decades, bare-faced lies have been told by our rulers about immigration.
When Enoch Powell was vilified in the late 1960s for drawing attention to the problem, the then social services secretary, Dick Crossman, ordered officials to conceal what he and they knew to be the true figures. Is this deceit still going on?
Perhaps. But and this may be even worse the difference between the statistics and reality may be down to sheer incompetence. The truth is that we have no idea how many people are in this country. That is a scandal.
We have no idea because this Government decided, when it came to power in 1997, that it would be a good idea to stop proper enforcement of border controls.
Jack Straw, our smug so-called Justice Secretary, was home secretary at the time, and was responsible for this. His successor, David Blunkett, boasted continually about getting tough on illegal immigrants, promising round-ups and deportations of those with no right to be here. It never happened.
The result is that parts of the country, notably in and around London, are suffering from terrible overcrowding. Coupled with the Government's insane decision to allow unfettered rights of access to Britain by the 10 countries that joined the EU in 2004, this has put a crippling strain on housing, the health service, schools and the police.
Immigration is not a racial problem: it is a problem of numbers, and one the Government not only refuses to admit, but will not even attempt to quantify.
This week, we were told there were 11,000 foreigners in our prisons one in seven of those inside and the Government, with typical incompetence, is struggling to negotiate deals to have these people serve their sentences back home.
Yesterday, an independent body called the National Housing and Planning Advice Unit said that the Government's plans to build three million new homes by 2020 were not nearly adequate.
Of course they are not, because of the state's determination to allow unlimited immigration and, with it, the end of the indigenous cultural identity. The tensions of what used to be called "multi-culturalism" are dangerous enough: but so are the practical issues.
Large parts of England will be concreted over to accommodate all these new people. There will have to be new roads, railways and airports. And since we are already full up, and our public services buckling, where are we going to put everyone?
Labour has covered up its failure to control our borders by saying that our economy needs immigrants.
Well, if you are determined to have a welfare state that tolerates about eight million economically unproductive people of working age the unemployed, those in "training" and those on various benefits because they believe they are unfit for work then of course you will. It is time someone got serious.
The present Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, has hardly put her head above the parapet on this one. Between now and the next census in 2011, she might like to do a little housekeeping. That means locating and deporting all those with no right to be here. It would not be that difficult.
We have no idea how many are in this country, not least because the last census was a joke: for all we know, there are 70 million here already. We also have to make sure we have immigration controls at our ports, and that they are rigorously enforced.
Ms Smith might like to end our reputation as an international soft touch. If she doesn't, and as our whole way of life in fact depends on her doing so, no one will ever forgive her.
America has a huge influx of Christian Eastern Europeans too???
I was going to post the same thing...they will be along with stats and holding a mirror up to us....i guess i need to travel over to the UK and find out myself.
There's a lot of that going around!
Simply replace "UK" with "US" and you have a ready-made prophesy. I will not (nor will many of us) live to see this prophecy fulfilled, but it will be fulfilled. If I could venture a guess, this poisoned fruit will begin to bear around 2080 - 2100. It can't be helped, you know. The Dems are looking for votes anywhere they can find them.
My only prayer is that this great country doesn't become an Islamic state under Sharia law. Better that it should be annexed by Mexico.
I hope all the open borders people are paying attention. Not only is the West being destroyed, they are going to destroy without even firing a shot.
How sad that England has deteriorated so that slavery continues, with women on sale near Gatwick, and Islamic rapes simply ignored.
Must be A-OK at the highest levels.
Well, there's their first problem: they allow a bunch of smug, arrogant bureaucrats to be their "rulers".
As we have seen throughout history, uncontrolled immigration is fatal to host nation. No nation in history has ever survived uncontrolled immigration. Oh, the borders may remain, somewhat, but the institutions and the cultures are destroyed.
Re: Your Post #10
A target-rich environment if ever I saw one.
‘Gee, I keep reading this over and over but some of the Brits that post here claim it isnt so. Londonstan, Englandstan, Eurostan...it is happening and here also. The death of the west.’
It’s not that we don’t have an immigration problem, it’s that the problem doesn’t end in -istan.
Our muslim immigration is reducing year on year, the problem lies with unlimited east european immigration. You’ll have to think up some snappy title like Londoniski instead.
If that photo has not been photo shopped, Jorge cannot get out of office fast enough for me.
