MPs Are Too White, Says David Cameron

Christopher Hope, Telegraph (London), June 29, 2014

MPs do not represent the people of Britain properly because they are too white, David Cameron has said.

The Prime Minister said there is “much more to be done” to encourage more people from ethnic minority backgrounds to enter Parliament.

Mr Cameron made the comments in a preface to a book, “Rainbow over Westminster”, which charts the increasing number of MPs who are black or from ethnic minority backgrounds.

In the preface, Mr Cameron said that the book “serves as a reminder–that there is much more to be done.

“Our Parliament is still nowhere near representative enough of the country we live in today.

“We should not presume that this will simply correct itself over time. History isn’t written for us: it is written by us.”

Mr Cameron said that he hoped the book–which is edited by the Labour MP Keith Vaz, who became the first British Indian to sit in the Commons for over 60 years when he was elected in 1987–would help “to open up politics further”.

Since the first MP was elected 172 years ago, there have been 38 ethnic minority MPs in the Commons. Today 26 out of 650 MPs are from BME backgrounds.

In the 2010 election 16 men and women from black and ethnic minority backgrounds were elected–a quintupling on the three who were elected in 1987.

In an introduction, John Bercow, the Commons’ Speaker, said: “We need to ensure that we continue to benefit from the greater diversity of elected representatives.”

Mark Hammond, chief executive of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said: “Parliament should be drawing from the widest talent pool so that people from a range of backgrounds have the opportunity to take part in political life and help make fair and well-informed decisions.”

Mr Cameron’s remarks come after research published last month from the Policy Exchange thinktank, which said that non-white people will make up between 20 and 30 per cent of the population by 2050. The current share is around 14 per cent.

The think-tank, which has close links to the Conservative Party leadership, also highlighted the differing political leanings of different ethnic groups, advising politicians not to treat non-white voters as a uniform group.

The coming growth in Britain’s non-white population is largely explained by a higher birth-rate among ethnic minority Britons.

A quarter of all children under 10 in the UK are from ethnic minorities. By contrast, 95 per cent of people aged over 60 are white.

The Conservative Party is doing more to reach out to black and ethnic minority groups, although it refuses to make such moves public.

In April, Michael Gove, the Education secretary and a Tory moderniser, issued the said the Tories should reclaim the term “multi-culturalism”.

He told an audience at the Asian Business Awards told the 500-strong black tie dinner at a hotel in central London earlier this month that Britain was a “stronger country” because of its history of immigration.

He said: “The answer to how we make our country strong in the future is that we welcome talent from whenever it comes and we celebrate the fact that we are stronger together as a United Kingdom, as a multi-cultural nation than we could ever be if we looked back to the past.”

    All of our leaders must be victims of blackmail.

    They speak with one unified, voice which is counter to what their constituents want.

  • Petronius

    Unfortunately Mr Cameron is not white enough.

    And he has been much too busily engaged in heaping up Britain’s funeral pyre.

  • David Cameron is both white and an MP.

  • Pro_Whitey

    Let’s start with Cameron, that skyte for brains. And I think QEII ought to get the standard old traitor treatment, hanged, drawn and quartered, beheaded, for not uttering a peep about this for decades.

    • Katherine McChesney

      They’re related aren’t they?

      I had a children’s book about Elizabeth’s coronation which made the claim that she was the ‘The Defender of the Faith” which is the C. of E. A few years ago I saw that it had been pluralized to read “The Defender of the Faiths”. I also read that she sold England out during the week of Diana’s funeral. I can’t stand her now knowing she has betrayed the people who have always been so faithful to her.

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        Queen Elizabeth visited the Jamestown colony in Virginia in 1957, on the 350th anniversary of its founding and then again in 2007 on its 400th anniversary. What I remember about the 2007 visit is the PC gobbledygook she spouted:

        “And those early years in Jamestown, when three great civilizations came together for the first time, Western European, Native American and African . . .”

        She sound like David Cameron.

        • IstvanIN

          She is a ceremonial head of state whose speeches are approved by the government. Grow up guys, it was the politicians who caused the mess.

        • JDInSanD

          You didn’t finish her quote. What were the other two great civilizations that the Western Europeans, natives and Africans came together with?

        • David Ashton

          She has this “fault”: she likes being greeted by happy colored faces, a situation which she could not escape by virtue of her position as Queen of more than white subjects and “head” of the “commonwealth”. However, these scripts are written for her on the advice and usually by her ministers. We know that her Mother and her husband have not been PC, and despite his earlier interest in Sufism the Prince of Wales is as positively and as actively “English” as he dare possibly be.

      • David Ashton

        The blame here lies with the “trahison des clercs” of the “Church” of “England”. She behaved properly and in tradition after the death of Diana despite the Murdoch-media and the closet republicans whipping up a very un-English mob sentiment. The tragedy is that in her old age she is being exploited more than ever by a political class who view with contempt the pledge of service she gave in South Africa when her father died. The Lord President of her Privy Council is now the PC-crazy Deputy PM Nick Clegg whose popularity in the country is close to zero.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Nick Clegg at zero? That is heartening. Does it seem to you that UKIP is making headway in England? I’d like to see the UK out of the EU. Do you think it will withdraw from the EU?

          • David Ashton

            Ukip makes and should make headway as a protest party, and clear the field for better people.

            What a variety of opinions on AR! Michael Scott can’t wait to turn Britain into a giant Hiroshima and reduce me, my family and the rest of our English-speaking white population into radioactive cinders. You would like us out of the EU. Others would like us to take arms against a sea of troubles.

            We need to get out from under the 40,000-strong Brussels commission, but the only alternative on offer appears to be to go under the 80,000,000-strong Beijing communist party.

          • Katherine McChesney

            I’d like to see you get your country back. It seems that withdrawing from the EU and stopping immigration would help English-speaking White population regain their independence. Maybe I’m mistaken.

          • David Ashton

            We need control of our national borders, and this is a view shared by the majority in most other white populations across the EU. I would prefer a competent British effort within the EU and in our Crown Commonwealth to push for this objective as a number one. I don’t think Cameron would or could do that effectively, but then I don’t think he wants to leave the EU either. Miliband refuses a referendum on the EU but is more likely to win the next election on the usual fake-promises according to current predictions.

            We have only a choice between Tweedledave and Tweedleded, unless Ukip can sweep the board at our next first-past-the-post election system. The people are concerned most about their income security, next about third world immigration, and third about EU membership. Our economic problem for nearly a century has been the balance of trade: the Empire could have helped, and so could Europe. I am concerned about our overcrowded island swapping the Brussels frying pan only to end up eventually in the Beijing fire. We need white solidarity world-wide.

  • David Ashton

    Gove’s true character revealed. The terms “multicultural” and “nation” are contradictory. We already knew about Cameron, the PR head of the Parliamentary Pantomime Horse, with Clegg its PC back end.

    • frederickdixon

      Gove has said that “immigration has made Britain strong”. I often wonder how anyone could have a mind that thinks like that – can he be entirely unaware of the all-white, all-British Britain which fought two world wars, which invented the industrial revolution and thus the modern world? Does he really think that the ethnic chaos we now endure is better, stronger, than that?

      • David Ashton

        A friend of mine who claims to know Gove believes he is well aware of what you say. He is a fanatic Zionist and private anti-Muslim. But politicians need votes first and foremost. I have mixed feelings about George Bernard Shaw, but there was a lot of sense in his Preface to “The Apple Cart” about the “democracket” that rings true today more than ever.

      • wombleranger

        Not really but it’s important to keep repeating the big lie until people start to believe in it, this is why we are in such a bad place now with immigration being used to genocide the real white population. Funny, i was always taught that the white English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish gave the world culture and even a language while the so called important non-white immigrant was sitting in a mud hut!

  • Truthseeker

    If Britain were to have MP’s representing what its ethnic makeup should be, they’d be 100% White.

    • David Ashton

      And apart from a couple of odd exceptions that is what Parliament was until quite recently in our history.

  • 4321realist

    “Our Parliament is still nowhere near representative enough of the country we live in today.”

    Then out of the other side of his evil mouth he says nobody should notice race.

  • Pax Romana

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    The West have gone insane.

    Treasonous leaders working against the interests of their own countries and people, and the people quietly allowing themselves to be replaced. Our enemies no longer have to invade, they just have to immigrate.

    Our corrupt so called “Representatives” will lie, cheat, and steal to create a Third World existence, full of overpopulation, poverty, violence, and pollution. Never in the history of mankind has a nation and its people purposely strived for, and celebrated their own destruction. It is straight out insanity.

    “Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius.”

    “MPs do not represent the people of Britain properly because they are too white, David Cameron has said.”

    Well, Mr. Cameron, reduce your brown population and the problem is solved.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    “We should not presume that this will simply correct itself over time. History isn’t written for us: it is written by us.”

    A very telling statement. You, and your political cohorts, are indeed writing history, Mr. Cameron. In doing so you are intentionally disregarding both the advice of the British people and the proud history of those people. You hold yourself out as a paragon of virtue on this issue, Mr. Cameron, but there’s nothing virtuous about selling out your people.

    And it’s funny that Cameron and his cronies are urging Brits elect more non-white people to correct some alleged “problem”, when people like Cameron and his cronies created the problem of significant numbers of non-whites in Britain in the first place. It’s reminiscent of Obama asking for two billion dollars to address the flood of illegals pouring into the U.S. because Obama has been pushing for amnesty.

    How much longer are people going to stand for this pablum?

  • Medizin

    Yes, David, let them into the government where they’ll make the entire country a ‘no go’ zone.

    That is beyond sickening right there. How much more anti-White can this guy be? Really having THOUSANDS of ethnic English girls raped and groomed by arab and pakistani gangs makes the United Kingdom a stronger nation? No wonder Hitler is so vilified by the establishment media today, the abomination that is modern day England and its hard core anti-White, pro Marxist Prime Minister David Cameron would never exist if the National Socialists had won World War 2.

    • coco bongo

      OMG, you mentioned actual races and ethnicities instead of the standard counter-jihad leftist freak speak, “Muslim.” Dat’s racist!

      I say the counter-jihad leftists are a problem that needs to be dealt with too.

            The powers-that-be have long anticipated and prepared for this possibility, but there is an option that I would prefer not expound here.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Sir Oswald Mosley was one of the greatest prime ministers Britain never had.

      • David Ashton

        If you can get it, start with his essay on “Sir Winston Churchill” in “Policy & Debate”. They knew each other, but it is as devastatingly critical as it is respectful of a gifted man whose greatness was achieved by war not peace. I was deeply moved to watch an American film on TV a few days ago which showed the State Funeral of Old Winnie, and I realised that I was watching the funeral of the England I most loved. Mosley might well have been PM if the system had not escaped from slump into war in 1939 but he would never have come to power through Nazi bayonets or Democratic surrender.

        • Einsatzgrenadier

          I was deeply moved to watch an American film on TV a few days ago which showed the State Funeral of Old Winnie, and I realised that I was also watching the funeral of the England I most loved.

          The seeds of England’s destruction were also sewn during that period, albeit under Attlee, who was succeeded by Churchill. Unfortunately, Churchill didn’t bother halting and reversing the West Indian invasion when he had the chance. Instead, he halfheartedly suggested the slogan “KEEP ENGLAND WHITE” during his last years in office.

          Churchill didn’t even seem all that concerned with the dangers posed by third world colonization. He paid no attention to the machinations of certain politicians, deceivers who pretended that the third world “immigration” was so small as to be of little or no consequence (already, there were reports of knife fighting between the government’s West Indian imports and the English).

          If anything, Churchill was complicit in the betrayal of the British people. There is no way a man of his intelligence could not have realized the dangers posed by third world invasion, which would be thousands of times more dangerous than the absorption of GB into the Third Reich!

          • David Ashton

            Churchill reportedly stated that he could not persuade his Cabinet to take Commonwealth immigration seriously. KBW was a slogan of Colin Jordan’s truly ridiculous neo-nazis and generally regarded at first as a gratuitously offensive slogan against a then small number of West Indians, including ex-servicemen, invited here as workers against the advice of the Royal Commission on Population and the wishes of local residents in a few localities of London and Birmingham. Of course, it was the “advance party” of a revolution that expoded only after Churchill fell ill and finally popped his clogs, as I personally maintained then as a student and ever since.

            I am not greatly interested in debating here the pros and cons of this man who died decades ago, still less any “benefits” from any defeat and occupation of Britain. I still regard the Halifax-Chamberlain “guarantee” to Poland was at best a tragic mistake and at worst a sinister provocation. The Generalplan Ost was not as wise a strategy as the enlistment of anti-Soviet peoples against Stalin. However, we “live” with the results of a catastrophic war in which the misguided racial ruthlessness of Hitler towards all Jews and many Slavs has since proved an immense disadvantage to western self-defense against a “third world invasion” that should unite us whatever our speculations about events of 60 years ago.

    • IstvanIN

      The UK was a multicultural nation before black and brown immigration, did you forget about the two constituent kingdoms, one principality and the counties in the north of Ireland Mr. Cameron?

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        True, but when multiculturalists use the word “multicultural” they really mean multiracial.

  • IstvanIN

    NO ONE represents the English, Welsh, Scots or Northern Irish in parliament so the blacks and browns are actually ahead on that measure.

  • david dorian

    Too White??

    That’s because you;re attempting to Genocide a nation and destroy them.

    The answer is deportation of the unwanted immigrants and representation of the ethnic interests of whites.

    Cameron should be castigated for such an EVIL, GENOCIDAL statement.

    To hell with this parasite.

  • IstvanIN

    If Cameron were sincere he would have asked a colored member of his party to form a government.

  • Long Live Dixie

    MPs do not represent the people of Britain properly because they are too white, David Cameron has said.

    Where are the MPs who represent the people of Britain who oppose immigration?

  • Buy British last!

    • David Ashton

      Boycott Chinese goods instead.

  • IKUredux

    So. Mr. Cameron, may I suggest that all you British people just roll over and play dead. I further believe that the new monarch of England should be that black lady who was the mother of that black guy who was killed by the police back in I don’t know, but, I believe she has already been promoted to a something or other, so, of course, she would be perfect. While you are at it, I further recommend that all existing cathedrals be converted to mosques. Come on, you know it is going to happen eventually, at least this way you might garner some political support. Oh, and by the way, figure out some place to remove Stonehenge.Or, come up with how Stonehenge contributed to the Caliphate.

  • Nandarani

    David Cameron is Jewish.

    • Sangraal

      He has a distant Jewish ancestor. It’s completely irrelevant really. Tony Blair has no Jewish ancestors (as far as we know), and he was at least as bad. Ditto countless other white gentile politicans, journos, etc. KMac’s analyses can stand on their own without clutching at straws. Focusing on someone’s negligible Jewish ancestry just makes us look silly. Better to analyse why white gentiles act exactly as Jews do than pretend they’re actually Jewish. Too convenient.

  • Brian Cooper

    “The answer to how we make our country strong in the future is that we welcome talent from whenever it comes and we celebrate the fact that we are stronger together as a United Kingdom, as a multi-cultural nation than we could ever be if we looked back to the past.”

    If these immigrants are so talented, why can’t they express their talents in their home countries and build better futures in their own countries???? Instead of giving foreign aid as we have done in the past, why don’t we give foreign aid in the form of computers and pencils/note-books, bags of cement and other building products etc etc etc.

    Cameron is just talking out of his rear end. Why hasn’t his party endorsed more minority candidates? Oh sorry…he doesn’t want to loose the election which he would do if the Conservatives did that. Every electorate wants to be represented by the best available candidate, not some baboon who decides he wants to be a politician in whiteys country. Why is it up to whitey to create opportunities for strangers to their lands? I am tired of it all. Wasn’t Mr O’Sama a community organiser or something? What exactly does a Community Organiser do? Over here in Oz, we never hear of such positions of opportunity. White people are nuts and we deserve to loose what our forefathers built for us if we continue to be so weak in dealing with those who wish to come to our countries, yet they demand so much from us. It makes me sick.

    Based on the colour of our skin, we are either recipients of extra help in order to get ahead in life, or you not. In the latter case, it is up to us to make full use of our white privilege that we are supposed to possess. I wish that these monkeys and apes get back into their cages and wait for their next feeding time.

    To any politician who might be reading this……Why don’t you tell the truth for a change and get rid of these black and Asian immigrants? You are slowly killing us.

  • rightrightright

    ” …we are stronger together as a United Kingdom, as a multi-cultural nation than we could ever be if we looked back to the past.”

    The wealth we achieved in consequence of the industrial revolution? our dominance in Europe post-1815? the British Empire? Nothing multicultural about that.

    This horrible, hating man is unfortunately just one such among 650 Members of Parliament.

    Britain today has never been weaker. It is his job to weaken us, as it is Obama’s job to weaken the USA. Cameron lies.

    • Long Live Dixie

      . . . as it is Obama’s job to weaken the USA.

      I don’t agree with this. A weak USA would make it that much easier for nationalism to triumph in Europe. I think the weakening of the USA is an unintended consequence of the US system’s policies.
