Update: Just got a link for the horrific London Muslim riots today, at Atlas Shrugs of course!
Directly on the heels of my prescient post yesterday about the political right gaining traction in Europe, comes a report from the Mail that says white working class Britons have had it! Unable to find low-income housing due to the large number of migrants in the UK, the rightwing British National Party is set to gain converts and power. Hat tip: Blulitespecial.
The statistics are stark. One in 12 council homes (low income housing) in England are now lived in by migrants, while the list of people waiting for social housing has doubled during Labour’s time in power to 1.7million.
Last week, a government report from the Whitehall department of Communities Minister Hazel Blears warned that the crisis has resulted in a surge of popularity for extremist groups, including the British National Party.
Betrayed and Abandoned!
After interviewing 43 British families in Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Liverpool’s Runcorn and Thetford in Norfolk, the report concluded that the white working class think they have been ‘betrayed’ and ‘abandoned’ by mainstream politicians who make them ‘come second’ to immigrants on the housing ladder.
The report provoked an instant response from a seemingly repentant Ms Blears herself. She admitted that white working-class people ‘sometimes just don’t feel anyone is listening or speaking up for them’, adding that they should be allowed to voice their worries ‘without fear of being branded racist.’
According to this article, leftwing policies that placed the homeless with large families (ie. immigrants) ahead of native born British citizens is responsible for the backlash.
In the furore that followed, Frank Field, Labour MP for Liverpool’s Birkenhead and joint chairman of the Cross-Party Group on Balanced Migration, agreed that the Government was riding roughshod over the working class at its peril.
He predicted that Labour policies on housing would turn local people to Far Right parties in the next general election, echoing a dire warning he gave last year.
‘Slowly, but determinedly, the white English working class – and I guess, some black Britons, too – are voting against unlimited immigration by embracing the BNP,’ he said back then.
I’ll now refer you to my previous post today about NumbersUSA backing American workers first! Obama beware, it will be the same story in the US sooner than later.
By the way, I just heard on Fox News that another pro-Islam/anti-Jew demonstration occurred in London today. When I get a link I’ll post it here. Bet it went over really big with the BNP crowd.
