For a generation, the great gulf in British politics has not been left or right. Neither determined the fundamental of our future existence as a people.
The great divide has, in fact, been immigration with the entire political establishment and a servile media determined to remove the subject from public debate versus a vilified fringe of British nationalists and a terrified minority of the populace muttering in private.
Any thinking person could perceive that a self-serving commitment of the system to mass immigration would mean the eventual end of us as a people and a way of life. Thus, until fairly recently, the media treated immigration as an unmentionable subject. Any debate might have unfortunate consequences. People might begin to think that there were serious issues and consequences. Worse, they might perceive extensive underlying discontent and begin to talk among themselves. Debate was closed down – as we all now know – by the use of an ‘r’ word.
Inevitably, larger and larger parts of the country have become effectively places where a Briton is now a foreigner when he walks his own streets. London in particular is no longer in any real sense a British city. Debate can no longer be contained and it has exploded even into the crony mainstream press.
This has not happened because of UKIP or the BNP before it collapsed. They are effects not causes. It was inevitable that a convenient official taboo against voicing the realities could not be maintained indefinitely. The system has relied on the fact that even if immigration broke out from a prison of censorship voters would get more of it however they voted and be forced to accept it.
The Westminster elite imagined that fringe movements would be unable to gain sufficient traction to dislodge them. The official media could easily undermine intruders. It has in the past.
But the chorus of dissatisfaction has now grown to the point where the big parties can no longer rely even on their own tribal voters. The fact that the current main contender outside the magic circle of power, UKIP, has no serious plan to save our people is obvious. A five year halt to migration has now been replaced by the farcical 50,000 net immigration policy as UKIP continues to attempt to be everything to everyone.
But UKIP can certainly sabotage the plans of the big parties who are threshing around wondering which of them might be the bigger losers as the latest intruders fail to perform to the official script and stutter to a halt.
Immigration has escaped from its political cage and it can’t be put back. But a new gulf has opened up in British politics with once again the entire system united in a determination to keep a second beast in its cage.
Once again the taboo rotates around an ‘r’ word. But it’s not ‘racism’ any more – that gambit is of decreasing value.
The new ‘r’ word is ‘repatriation’ and the outlines of the battle were made clear last week when newly elected UKIP MP Mark Reckless made some later disputed comments interpreted as meaning that EU citizens who had already migrated to Britain by the time of any Brexit should leave.
Suppose UKIP and public pressure succeeded in forcing Britain out of the EU. Nigel Farage claims that he will give us our country back. But if no one then leaves we will all find that nothing has changed. When we walk down many of our streets we will still be foreigners.
The ghastly fact is that our homeland can only be regained if very large numbers of those who have moved here return to their own homelands. No one thinks it wrong that those here on work permits should be asked to leave when their permissions expire. Why would it be wrong to ask those from Europe who are citizens of other countries and who came here under a political arrangement to do likewise when that arrangement ends – at least over a period of time?
The system is now digging in against any thought of anyone leaving just as it tried to censor any thought of people being prevented from migrating here. We will be told that asking people to return to countries they often or regularly visit due to family connections – commonly by coach from Victoria Coach Station – is akin to deportation by cattle truck.
If no one leaves then the British people must consign themselves to slow extinction and prepare for minority status along the highway. They will have to make up their minds – and soon.
Every effort will be made to dissuade Britons from debating their plight – and the sole solution to it – by the use of the latest ‘r‘ word.
