Whether the media is discussing current immigration figures or those during the Blair Government when Labour deliberately engineered mass immigration, the Lib-Lab-Cons – and even the Ukipers – stick to the net input. Perhaps because it gives less worry to the UK aborigines that way. It helps to soften the reality that we are being flooded by the Afro-Asian world.
I wrote the above in Nationalist Notebook No.5 – June this year. In an excellent report in The Spectator, 28th November, Melanie McDonagh backs up what the Brit Dems have been saying about the gross immigration figures giving us a far truer picture of the effects of immigration on our country. As a good half of those leaving the country are of original British stock, what the old parties are achieving is the replacement of that stock with a cosmopolitan new world order. And what UKIP is offering cannot stop this.
Just over half a million people migrated to the UK in the year to June. And half a million the year before – actually, she says, it was 517,000, but let’s not quibble. A million, then, in two years…that’s quite something. But you wouldn’t have known from the news about the new immigration stats from the Home Office, which focused instead on a rise in net migration to 182,000 (ie the number of people arriving, less the number of Brits leaving).
Melanie McDonagh then makes this very important point, which has been stressed on this website on several occasions: “Now, for all the noise about Bulgarians and Romanians coming to Britain, about half the new immigrants were from outside the EU – 242,000, down from 282,000 the previous year. You’d never think it though, to judge by the PM’s obsessive focus on EU migration.
Further on in her report, she says: “ And if, over four years, a million people from outside Europe are coming to Britain, however excellent and hardworking they are individually, it really does change the face of the country and its sense of its own identity. Unless, of course, they’re largely Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians and Americans, who culturally have a good deal in common with the locals – and they’re not.”
Well that is exactly what the BDP has been saying. Welcome to the real world, Melanie!
