Immigration Report


John Simkin

Recommended Posts

This report was used by the C4 programme on Monday on the issue of immigration. The report was produced by a left-wing think tank but supports some of the arguments of the far right. For example, 80% of immigrants from Somalia live in social housing. At the same time only 19% are in employment. This is partly due to the government's policy of making it in some cases impossible for them to work and therefore forcing them to live off the state. The majority of immigrants from Turkey, Bangladesh and Pakistan are also economically inactive.

The report also shows some groups of immigrants contributing a great deal to the economy of the UK. This includes Australia, Poland, France, Canada, Zimbabwe, Philippines and South Africa.

It seems to me that the biggest loss from immigration was the lost opportunity to create a better quality of life than we now enjoy,as a consequence of having an additional 20million poeple.This is a lot of extra people for a small geographical area,five times the total population of New Zealand which is about the same size as the uk.I think that this disrupted the social processes that existed after the war,distorted economic decisions to the detriment of the indigenous population and halted the drive to greater equality.The problem of an ageing population will come up again in the future but instead of being a probem for a total popuation of 45million it will be with 70 million.It would have been better to have dealt with this problem as required without resorting to immigration.Not that I think this was the reason for immigration which was to keep wages down though the addional labour whilst creating useful social divisions at he same time.Recent immigration is driven by the examples of the city states like Hong Kong and Singapore and the capitalists see the Uk in these terms and don't give a damn about the long term implications for the populace and even less for the pre war population.White children have been systematically stripped of the knowledge of their history and roots and are simply a comparable ethnic group ,one amongst many,and the consequences are often to appalling to behold.The population has been slowly forced to accept these historically transforming changes by subtle psychological force and conditioning to the point where the think they are racist because they feel like objecting to being screwed like a bunch of idiots unable to protect themselves from forces which seem outside of their control.The winners are now rich beyond avarice and are citizens of the world and can go to live anywhere ;meanwhile back here...................!!
