Immigration Forces Down Work Productivity
Despite the Tories claim to reduce immigration to “tens of thousands”, latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show that for the 12 months up to last December the number of immigrants was 497,000. As usual this gross figure is not the one that the political class and their kept media give prominence to – perhaps it is too frightening for the ordinary folk to see. It is the net figure, i.e that obtained after deducting those who emigrate from our shores (mainly white Britons) to give a more acceptable figure of 176,000.
The same ONS figures also reveal that the proportion of babies born to foreign-born mothers rose overall to 25.9 per cent. The top nationality was Poland with 21,156, followed by Pakistan with 19,091. Papers such as the Mail and the Express make great play on the “leap in migrants from Europe”, but if the ONS figures are studied it will be seen that two-thirds of immigrants, and babies born of immigrant mothers, are still Afro-Asian. With the possible exclusion of the ever-increasing number of Roma gypsies from Rumania and Bulgaria, children born in the UK from Continental European stock are not going to make any major change to the ethnic make-up of Britain (remember the Angles, Saxons, Vikings, and Normans?), although pressure results upon our own customs and immediate life style.
Where East European immigration does create major problems is in the effects on schooling, welfare, the demands on our NHS, and particularly on competition for jobs. A survey just held by Lord Ashcroft says that 36 per cent of people said that they or someone in their family had found it harder to secure work or a good salary because of increased competition from migrant workers. Only one in six polled said that they believed immigration had benefited the country ( most of these could be of immigrant stock!).
An article in the business sector of the Daily Telegraph (3.9.13) by Jeremy Warner says that mass immigration has made Britain a less competitive economy. During the last six years more than a million private sector jobs have been created. Warner says:
“Much of the job creation has been in low-income or part-time employment. Real incomes have experienced their worst squeeze since the 1920s. Yet this is not just a recent phenomenon. The squeeze on real incomes, particularly at the lower end of the scale pre-dates the crisis.
“Foreign competition, both in the form of immigration and imported goods and services, has been a big constraint on wage growth….Cheap labour has become a substitute for investment in plant, machinery, training and research and development.
“High levels of low-end immigration have been, at best, a zero sum game and, by holding back necessary investment in the future, possibly quite a negative economic influence.”
How the Long March paid off
On this site on August 18th the article “The Creeping Tyranny Behind Tory Row” by John Stephens first appeared. It explains how the official views of today’s Conservatives bear no relationship to what they were in the fifties and have been so consumed by political correctness that one can understand how today a coalition government with Liberal-Democrats can enter into its third year..
John Stephens explains how this came about when back in 1923 a hard core of radical ultra-leftists discussed the reasons why the world’s working class were rejecting the call of “Workers of the World Unite”, the official Moscow line of Communism. In essence, they decided that they should put their efforts into Cultural Marxism to be adopted in schools, universities, the media and the church. Starting in the thirties the so-called Frankfurt School of Marxist intellectuals started to become effective in imposing their views on the targets above and so what we now call political correctness first began to be accepted. It was aided particularly by the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci.
I was somewhat surprised when I received an e-mail from a long-standing friend of mine with these comments on the Stephens article:
“I am not persuaded that writers of pop songs, producers of soap operas or executives of great corporations sit up all night reading Gramsci and Adorno. Most people are not racists – it really is as easy as that. But the FrankfurtSchool has replaced the Learned Elders in the mythology of the far-right and dissenters are dismissed as naïve fools or even useful idiots.”
The answer my old friend is that the people you list, as most others too, have never heard of Gramsci, Marcuse et al! If too much was known about their true objectives, particularly in the early days, then they would never have been so successful, nor taken so many people in, apparently including your good self. To become known by the world at large would defeat their method of obtaining Marxist inspired political correctness by stealth. If you think it was all nonsense, then just look at these changes since you were a lad, let alone my age.
In 1959 I was able to organise a meeting in Trafalgar Square and speak under a banner bearing the slogan “Keep Britain White”. In the spring of 1961 I again spoke in the capital’s most famous square under the slogan “Keep White Solidarity”. As a youth you were at that meeting. Both were held with full Police permission.
Today, permission for such meetings would be denied and with the majority of the London population now being non-British in origin we would both probably be lynched if we decided to hold a meeting illegally. If the slogans were used on leaflets then they would fall foul of at least one of the numerous racism offences that have slowly appeared in legislation.
The originators at the FrankfurtSchool and the activists of the Long March were not advocating a violent revolution but placing a priority of controlling the minds of the youth through the education system. I repeat, a majority had never heard of the infamous school or Gramsci and Co, who used the children to establish the political correctness now choking the nations of Europe and its offspring former dominions.
These are some of the other changes that did not come about by chance, or by bankers acting nationally or internationally, or solely because Britain and Europe were exhausted by World War Two.
1. Mass immigration to destroy identity.
2 .Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
3. Undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority.
4. The teaching of homosexuality, and now pornography, to children.
5. Control and dumbing down of the media.
6. Dependency on the state or state benefits.
7. Emptying of the churches.
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.
9. End the specific role of father and mother, and remove their rights as primary educators of their children.
10. Abolish differences in the education of boys and girls.
11. Abolish all forms of male dominance – hence the presence of women in front line armed forces.
12. Continual change to create confusion.
The School took the view that cultural revolution was the most important type, which demolishes from within. One of them said: “Modern forms of subjection are marked by mildness”. They saw it as a long-term project, conducted mainly anonymously, and kept their sights clearly focussed on the family, education, media, sex and popular culture.
Scrap the Wasteful Windmills
Data released by one of the large green energy companies operating on-shore wind turbines in Britain, RWE npower renewables, showed that in mid-August several wind farms were only producing enough electricity to boil two to three kettles at a time. RWE is a subsidiary of a German energy company operating 27 wind turbine farms in the UK.
The fact that Germany and Denmark not only dominate the UK wind farm business but also are, between them, the sole suppliers of our wind turbines is not the news story here. The evidence of the outrageous inefficiency of wind turbines, which is being ignored by the LibLabCon party, is the story. It has only been reported by Robert Mendick of the Sunday Telegraph (25.8.13).
Trysglwyn wind farm, in Anglesey, was the one producing just enough to boil two kettles each with 3KW of power. At the same time, Bilbster wind farm near Wick, North Scotland produced 268KW%, which could boil 89 kettles. The wind farm near Romney Marsh, Kent, is the largest in the South East and produced enough to boil 43 kettles. Mendick quoted two other wind farms, in Cumbria and in Harrogate, which had to take power out of the national grid to meet its own operating demands.
It is appreciated that in mid summer there is usually less wind available, but these figures emphasise the unreliability of wind power. We should scrap the onshore turbines now, but keep those already installed in offshore farms, where there is always some wind available. Incidentally, the “boost to British jobs” that it was supposed to create turned out to be virtually zilch, certainly long-term jobs.
The Government says that it has to promote wind energy in order to meet the EU demands of providing 15 per cent of our energy needs from renewable sources by 2020. Solar energy becomes more and more efficient, but the problem is the space the panels take up competes with the land for farm produce and biomass energy crops. Wave power and estuary power look promising for the long term, although current costs are prohibitive.
This leaves nuclear power, but it takes ten years to build new power stations and still leaves many worrying about radiation problems. As I have said before, we should turn to the use of thorium in place of uranium for nuclear reactors. Uranium was chosen above thorium in the first place because you can make nuclear weapons from a its isotopes, which you can’t with thorium.
Rich seams of thorium exist in Wales and Cornwall. Apart form being safe, you could hold a lifetime’s supply in your hand. Liquid fluoride thorium reactors (LFTRs) are what experts are cautiously starting to call a “clean” nuclear option. The British Democrats should say : “Let’s go for it”.
Hungary Sheds the Bankers’ Shackles
I have not seen any reference in our national media to the actions made last month by Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban of the Fidesz party, in telling the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that “Hungary neither wants nor needs further ‘assistance’ . No longer will Hungarians be forced to pay usurious interest.”
This report came from Ronald L Ray an author who runs an American Free Press. Whether he is a fruitcake or not, like some who abound on the internet, I do not know as yet.
What we do know is that Orban’s Fidesz Party (Conservative) won a landslide election three years ago, but since have been pressurised by the Jobbik (Nationalist) party to take action not only on international bankers control of Hungary but also on immigration. For the latter it has been rebuked by the EU with threats of monetary fines in the spirit of a reborn Soviet bureaucracy. Hungary joined the EU under its former Socialist government in 2004.
