Where we stand on British Identity
We recognise that the unique character and enormous achievements of the British people can be attributed, to a large extent, to their ancestry. Distinctive peoples are not the product of distinctive cultures; distinctive cultures are the product of distinctive peoples. The very existence of the indigenous population is under unprecedented threat. The destruction of our people will lead to the destruction of our heritage.
Nationality is acquired by descent and unlike citizenship cannot be acquired by legal contrivance. Citizenship should be based on Nationality but it has, quite wrongly, been bestowed on people who are not British Nationals. Since 1948 there have been enormous demographic changes without any consultation of the electorate.
The British Democratic Party is committed to ending all immigration. Talking about reducing net immigrationis to connive at the replacement of the indigenous population. Illegal immigrants and immigrants who have committed serious criminal offences would be repatriated immediately. Other immigrants, especially the unassimilable ones, would be provided with incentives to return to their countries of origin and those countries would be provided with incentives to welcome them.
Our brand of Nationalism is certainly a commodity for export; it can also be imparted to the ethnic minorities in our midst. Why should they settle for being second-class ersatz Britons when they can become proud members of their own peoples.
Laws that provide immigrants and ethnic minorities with preferential treatment would be repealed.
Asylum seekers would be accepted only if they had been singled out for ill treatment and if Britain were the first safe country they encountered. Asylum seekers who travel through or over several safe countries before arriving in Britain become migrants of choice. Successful applicants for asylum status would be permitted to stay until a safe country in their own part of the world could accommodate them.
We maintain that the settlement of our country by large numbers of foreign people from around the world does not enrich our culture or promote multi-culturalism and diversity. On the contrary – the effect, here and around the world, of mass migration is, we believe, to impoverish everyone’s culture, destroying diversity and replacing it with a commercialised homogenised global lowest-common-denominator pop planet-wide monoculture which benefits no-one except for the giant multinational corporations whose worldwide marketing this makes easier.
In contrast as Nationalists we support real diversity. We want a sustainable multi-cultural world of diverse nations rather than the destruction of every culture – and the diverse ethnicities that uniquely created it – everywhere in the name of Big Business-driven global pop monoculture.
We would therefore maintain and enhance our nation, with its ancient ethno-cultural identities, Scots, Ulster, Welsh, Cornish, Manx and last but not least English, our traditional folk cultures and musical heritages, and the languages underlying them, as a hotspot of rich indigenous cultural diversity.
We would encourage other peoples and nations around the world to do likewise. Thus the world will not lose everyone’s culture in a homogenised mass mess but instead celebrate and preserve the rich cultural diversity, heritage and ethnicities of the World.
On a global level, and in the long run, we Nationalists are the only true friends of multiculturalism and diversity, which those who parrot those Politically Correct catch-phrases would in fact destroy, for everyone everywhere.
