Immigration Is Now on the Verge of Destroying UK

Leo McKinstry, Express, March 2, 2015

As our national identity is eroded, the political class still refuses to admit the scale of the catastrophe.

When the bloodthirsty Islamist brute nicknamed “Jihadi John” was exposed as a London computer graduate and terror suspect called Mohammed Emwazi, the cry went up, “How was he allowed to slip through the net?”

But it was an absurd question.

There is no net.

The last remnants of that tattered fabric have been torn away by a gang of unpatriotic, self-serving politicians who have imposed a destructive social revolution on our country without any consent from the British people.

The scandalous ease with which Emwazi was able not only to practice his violent fundamentalism but also to embark on his global jihadist travels is a graphic symbol of the collapse of our national integrity.

Fixated by the ideology of multi-culturalism, our rulers are unwilling to uphold either our borders or our British way of life.

Their cowardice was further highlighted last week by the release of the latest immigration figures, which revealed that, far from reducing the foreign influx as promised, the Tory-led Coalition has actually increased it.

According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), no fewer than 624,000 people immigrated to the United Kingdom in the year ending September 2014, a rise of 94,000 on the previous year.

The real impact of mass immigration could be far higher, for the total of National Insurance numbers dished out last year to foreigners was 768,000, an increase of 24 per cent on the previous year.

Moreover the ONS report does not of course include the huge wave of illegal migrants who surge through our porous borders every year.

Even on the most cautious basis, the statistics are truly shocking.

Every year, the equivalent of Manchester’s vast population is now settling here.

This accelerating floodtide represents an epic failure by the Tories, who promised in the 2010 General Election campaign that they would achieve a significant reduction in the numbers.

Predictably, the Conservatives have tried to downplay this political bankruptcy.

One of their favourite ruses is to emphasize net, rather than gross, immigration.

By subtracting the number of people leaving Britain (327,000) from the total of new arrivals (624,000) last year, they conveniently come up with the much lower figure of 297,000.

But net immigration is a meaningless figure. It gives no indication of the nature of social upheaval within Britain.

What is really happening is an exodus of talented, experienced, ambitious and wealthy Britons, with their places increasingly taken by low-skilled, often welfare dependent foreigners.

Indeed a recent report from University College London showed that 10 per cent of all highly skilled Britons now live overseas, while a quarter of working age adults with poor numeracy skills are immigrants.

Another devious stratagem is to pretend that the rise is all the fault of the European Union’s free movement policy.

That is certainly a problem that will not be resolved until Britain leaves the EU, but the fact is that majority of immigrants in 2014–as in all recent years–actually came from outside Europe, so the Government could have controlled these numbers if they wanted.

Impotence is an act of political will. Equally phoney is the pretence that burgeoning immigration is a tribute to the Coalition’s economic success.

Actually, less than half of the new arrivals, only 271,000 people, moved here for work.

Rates of welfare dependency, joblessness and economic inactivity are all significantly higher among immigrants from outside the EU than among people born here.

Damningly, last week’s report from University College London demonstrated that migrants are six times more likely never to have worked than native Britons.

That is a prime reason why, despite all the tough measures in the Government’s welfare reform programme, social security bills keep on rising.

Economic fabrications are just part of the official barrage of misleading propaganda aimed at disguising our national demise.

So we are constantly told that our public services would “collapse” without migrant labour, even though we managed to become a great industrial nation and create the NHS without it.

I n reality, far from propping our civic infrastructure, mass immigration has imposed an intolerable strain on the state, with every migrant costing on average £8350 in terms of education, healthcare and benefits.

Just as offensively, the politicians like to claim that mass immigration is somehow part of our heritage, with Britain portrayed as nothing more than “a gathering of countless different races and communities,” to quote the words of the late Labour left-winger Robin Cook in 2001.

His statement was historical nonsense.

Until recently, Britain was one of the most homogenous nations in the world.

In 1940 there were just 238,000 foreign nationals in Britains, little more than a third of the current annual influx.

How we have changed.

Cultural diversity is code for national suicide.

Tragically, as last week’s figures show, that process of disintegration can only accelerate under our current supine, dishonest rulers.

    WHAT HAPPEN…… Today most of dumb politians have no COMMON SENSE what reality SAVAGES come to destroy UK…… COME ON ……WAKE. UP.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Just a vision of what is happening in the USA—nobody will do anything to stop it….

    Not enough interest……

    • Maurice Miner

      We can all look back and see what happened in Kenya, Zimbabwe and the Republic of South Africa. The whites were eventually overrun, and anything of value was sequestered by the State. This is happening right now in the U.K.

      There is a complete lack of interest, and no-one will do anything at all. This will most definitely be the case in the USA – you can take that to the Bank! Political correctness has castrated all of civilisation.

      Necklaces, anyone?

      • John Smith

        I’d necklace most of the white politicians in any country.

      • George Moriarty

        “There is a complete lack of interest, and no-one will do anything at all”
        Sorry, it is even worse than that, in your country they voted for BHO and in the UK they vote for the Greens or the Tory/Lib coalition which is not much better.
        And, as I have suggested in some other posts there are some white people who still say it serves the Boers, Rhodesians and Kenyans right for what is or has happened to them since decolonization. These same deluded whites don’t seem to realize that this is what will happen to them once we become a minority in our own country.

        • WR_the_realist

          I’d say British citizens are more to blame for the what is happening in their country than American citizens are to blame for what is happening to ours. For years the Brits have at least had a choice — they could vote for the BNP. Americans never have choice. Always the winner is a Republican or a Democrat, always there’s scarcely any difference between the two on immigration, or anything else that matters.

    “Rates of welfare dependency, joblessness and economic inactivity are all significantly higher among immigrants from outside the EU than among people born here”.

    If I was this guy, I would be More concerned with the intelligent, educated or connected (even if only recently) immigrants. That’s why they are there, to marry or impregnate White British women. Oh, they may have immigrated there to advance their own economic interests, but that’s why the powers-that-be have facilitated their migration. I would be more concerned with the educated ones. I wouldn’t forget that ALL of these poor souls are eligible for positive action. I hear that will give them ‘similar-interest’ to their co-workers.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    It’s far to late for this country to recover. Social structure will continue to decline, those who can afford to will emigrate, and those left behind will fight for the remaining spoils.

    • Red

      The problem is there are not many places left to emigrate. One can certainly move to a country where diversity is less of an issue, but the problem still exists.

      And what country in their right mind is going to let us into theirs knowing we let this happen to our own?

      Very good article though…

    • David Ashton

      Backs to the wall, the English are never better.

      • Steve_in_Vermont

        Only if that “wall” isn’t there as a backdrop for a firing squad. The English are not the same people as the WW 2 generation.

        • David Ashton

          True, but only up to a point. Our enemies within have tried to weaken, corrupt and destroy us in many ways, but the Few remain in blood and spirit.

          • Yancy Derringer

            What can you and the like-minded do about it? How many millions of immigrants are there now, to stay?

          • David Ashton

            We can only make the case where opportunities permit, as in the McKinstry article or in Migration Watch UK publications, and through some MPs friendly to this cause. This is not an easy task for several reasons, but there is no need to give in or give up. The downside of immigration is already known and felt, with the prison population, terrorist recruitment and inter-community strife; and the public resistance is getting stronger and being voiced with relative impunity. The Muslim problem will be mitigated by the refusal to accommodate sharia arrangements, so that traditional Muslims will be required by their own faith to return home. Even fairly PC organizations like Population Matters are alert to the migration problem (there is a difference between essential experts on contract, and the settlement of entire Afro-Asian families). It is still possible to link repatriation with overseas development, as in the late Michael Quill’s practical “Smithfield Proposals”. The native English are now on the receiving end, and our case for homeland restoration occupies the moral and rational high-ground.

  • SentryattheGate

    Damningly, last week’s report from University College London demonstrated that migrants are six times more likely never to have worked than native Britons. Like Jihadi John’s family!

    • Cobbett

      Muslim and African migrants you mean. Same all over Europe.

  • dd121

    Do they all officially notice or is it just the guys who get thrown in jail for noticing?

  • David Ashton

    Leo McKinstry gets closer than most British writers, without the Puritan-pessimism of Peter Hitchens or the priority-Zionism of Melanie Phillips or the Labour-loyalty of Frank Field. Whether his UKIP will begin to reverse the process, after Nigel Farage’s recent suicidal move-to-the-center ground, remains to be seen.

    First things first: never apologize about wanting to maintain your national character, even if it means limiting immigration. Leftists never apologize for pursuing their agenda; nor should we.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Fixated by the ideology of multi-culturalism, our rulers are unwilling to uphold either our borders or our British way of life.

    What is happening to Native Born White Britons, who make up one percent of the world’s population living on one percent of the world’s arable land is genocide.

    Conditions that are imposed on a race that lead to its eventual non-existence is genocide.

    Mass, forced race immigration did not happen with the consent of the native born White British population, they were never asked if they wanted mass 3rd world immigration, it was forced upon them by cultural marxists. They were NOT allowed to refuse mass, 3rd world immigration, they were forced to accept it.

    Whites who object to their own displacement and genocide are threatened with violence, arrest and fines.

    Cultural diversity is code for national suicide. White Genocide

    Legacy of diabolical Cultural Marxists: Vicious attacks on White elderly, children and disabled:

    *A BLACK mugger knocked a 92-year-old man to the ground as he made a grab for his wallet before fleeing with just £5, police said.

    Police, who described the attack as “sickening”, issued a CCTV image showing the robber taking the wallet and leaving the victim on the floor.

    *RAF veteran was knocked out of his mobility scooter because his dog got in a ‘cowards’ way.

    Mr Sandon apologised, but the violent BLACK thug knocked him to the ground and stamped on him as he lay on the ground on the canal bank in Peterborough.

    *A frail 90-year-old man had his wallet snatched by two men when they approached him outside a Birmingham supermarket.

    The pensioner had collected his pension and was buying groceries at the store in Harborne when the duo – believed to be East European – engaged him in conversation.

    I feel the white Brit’s pain.

    We are headed down the same path.

  • falskog

    Cry me a river

  • Awakened Saxon

    Please stop saying ‘white British’. There is no other kind of British. By adding ‘white’, it gives room for non-whites to be British. This is a prerequisite to portray the British people as inherently multi-racial, thus taking away the right of the actual British people to be the sole possessors of their land.

    Britishness is based on blood, not on passports or locations of birth.

  • Cujo

    After reading this article, two Kinks songs immediately come to mind.

    1) the old Britain.

    “The Village Green Preservation Society”

    We are the Village Green Preservation Society
    God save Donald Duck, Vaudeville and Variety
    We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
    God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties
    Preserving the old ways from being abused
    Protecting the new ways for me and for you
    What more can we do
    We are the Draught Beer Preservation Society
    God save Mrs. Mopp and good Old Mother Riley
    We are the Custard Pie Appreciation Consortium
    God save the George Cross and all those who were awarded them
    We are the Sherlock Holmes English Speaking Vernacular
    Help save Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula
    We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity
    God save little shops, china cups and virginity

    God save tudor houses, antique tables and billiards
    Preserving the old ways from being abused
    Protecting the new ways for me and for you
    What more can we do
    God save the Village Green.

    2) what the Brits must now do to keep calm and carry on, indeed!

    “Have Another Drink”

    Has everybody got problems?
    Are you stuck in a deadend job?
    Frustrated and dissatisfied?
    Are you on the edge of suicide?
    Terrorist bombers on the left,
    Fascist plots on the right.
    Mass destruction and homicide,
    Are you horrified and terrified?
    Such a shame.

    We’ve all got problems we know,
    There’s one thing that’s for sure,
    There’s only one cure for all your hangups and all your depressions.

    Have another drink it’ll make you feel better,
    Have another drink and you’ll feel alright.
    If you feel down and you’re under the weather
    Have another drink and you’ll feel alright.
    [Repeat]

    Facts and figures.
    Filling out forms.
    Reading circulars.
    Dictating letters.
    Is your occupation
    Getting to your brain?
    Is there no relief?
    It’s like a ball and chain.
    There’s no need to get depressed,
    Worrying won’t make it better.
    There’s only one consolation I can recommend.
    Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Goodbye Great Britain. You were a bastion of White civilization and Christianity, but now you are on your way to becoming a multicultural third world hellhole. What a pity!!!

  • KenelmDigby

    Leo McKinstry is simply the best writer in the UK media today.
    Ironically, he is of Irish descent.

    • David Ashton

      Ulster?

  • Yancy Derringer

    This is a monstrous crime. It is indeed suicide. Centuries of the refinement of a great, homogenous culture simply thrown away, ruined, without reason or foresight. And the pace is quickening? What a disaster. What a terrible shame.

  • C. Magnus

    Saw a letter sent in to my national newspaper (The Australian) today that likened bringing in of new immigrants as our population ages as a never ending Ponzi Scheme. As those migrants grow older, there will be a need for more migrants still, and on and on. The perceptive correspondent remarked that we will need to one day put away enough to support ourselves in old age instead of relying on always adding to the population.

    Even without racialist arguments against immigration, a good common sense economics case can be made. The mainstream will at least listen to that.

  • Light from the East

    Just as offensively, the politicians like to claim that mass immigration
    is somehow part of our heritage, with Britain portrayed as nothing more

    What is really happening is an exodus of talented, experienced,
    ambitious and wealthy Britons, with their places increasingly taken by
    low-skilled, often welfare dependent foreigners.

    Robin Cook thought British heritage is low-skilled, welfare-dependent? What a crazy, low self-respect man with negative energy and mindset spreading those thoughts to other Britons, isn’t he?

    And they want our vote in May. No need to tell them where they can go.

  • Occidental Bookworm

    “He He Ho Ho White People have got to go” perfectly sums up the present mind-set of the average British (European) voter after 50 years of Frankfurt school indoctrination. A huge succes for the hard left however you measure it.

    • David Ashton

      I don’t think this the mindset of the average British voter despite the indoctrination and regulation. They scarcely get access to the media and are not given a proper alternative at “elections”. Little voice, no choice.

      • Occidental Bookworm

        That’s bollocks! They have Ukip, they have Libety GB and they have the BNP. Choices are available! However, your average Brit is perfectly complacent with a sniffling spineless appeasement rat like Cameron or his predecessor Blair. Two peas in a pod, those two. As long as people are sticking with Labour and the *loud cough* “Conservatives”, Britain is on a one way train to becoming an Islamic third world country.

        • David Ashton

          Thank you for your charming comment. Yes, the English NOW have UKIP, and the membership of the three main English parties has shrunk. LibertyGB and the remnants of the BNP lack the funds and TV access to make much impression, and such competitive candidates often split the anti-immigration vote in marginal constituencies. Widespread disillusion with Miliband and Blair-2 is widespread will grow with the collapse of the engineered pre-election boom. Hatred of the establishment politicians, however, is still accompanied by the intimidating effect of “race” legislation, though there is a simmering resistance to this outside the North London-Westminster bubble.

          • Occidental Bookworm

            And by your last comment, I presume you think otherwise? Yes, I believe that only a complete immigration stop of uneducated, unskilled, prone to become criminal thirdworlders, who will never ever become British by any standard, combined with active deportation of the already present members of the aforementioned group is the only way to avert the future disaster facing Britain. Look, just to be clear, I love the British people; spent quite some time in Britain actually, and this is why it so agrevating to see the people who practically founded the modern type of democracy we see throughout Western-Europe today, who gave their blood for for the freedom that I now enjoy, pissing it all away for fear of being labeled a racist. And I feel the same way about the average Dutch, French, Swedish and German voters by the way, who are all allowing this continued destruction of our culural and ethnic heritage to happen.

          • David Ashton

            I appreciate your love for our people. I favor a virtually complete end to all inward settlement except of those our immigration legislation once defined as “patrials”. Our difference is over the the deportation of the thirdworlders and their descendants. The problem is not so much fear of being “labeled racist” as various practicalities entailed and being accused of a gross lack of compassion.
