"As the prospect of a general election grows nearer MINISTERS ARE NOW INTERESTED ONLY IN DECEIVING THE PUBLIC, not in governing the country. DISHONESTY RUNS THROUGH EVERY AREA OF POLICY from public expenditure cuts to the failure to hold a referendum on the EU treaty.As I keep telling you, ladies and gentlemen, THEY are at war with us. Indeed, THEY have been at war with us for a very long time now. More and more are realising this, including, thank goodness, the odd former Labour councillor and a good few media darlings. Fortunately for the rest of us, some of these are now daring to voice these realisations
But NEW DEPTHS OF MENDACITY HAVE BEEN PLUMBED THIS WEEK WITH GORDON BROWN’S PROMISE TO GIVE BRITISH FAMILIES PREFERENCE IN STATE-FUNDED HOUSING rather than allow immigrants to have priority. THIS PLEDGE COULD NOT BE MORE HOLLOW OR UNTRUTHFUL. THE GOVERNMENT HAS ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF IMPLEMENTING SUCH A MEASURE.
For a start this move would be unlawful under a raft of legislation imposed by the Labour Government, such as the 1998 human Rights Act or the 2000 Race Discrimination Act, WHICH STATUTORILY ENSHRINE THE SOCIALISTS’ CONTEMPT FOR THE INDIGENOUS POPULATION OF BRITAIN.
Moreover HARRIET HARMAN’S NEW ‘EQUALITY’ BILL REQUIRES PUBLIC BODIES TO PRACTISE OVERT DISCRIMINATION IN FAVOUR OF ETHNIC MINORITIES to overcome ‘social disadvantage.’ THE IDEA THAT ANY COUNCIL OR HOUSING ASSOCIATION IS SUDDENLY ABOUT TO START FAVOURING LOCALS OVER MIGRANTS IS ABSURD.
DURING 12 YEARS OF LABOUR RULE THE CULTURE OF BIAS TOWARDS THE NON-BRITISH HAS BEEN DEEPLY EMBEDDED ACROSS THE PUBLIC SECTOR. BROWN’S PROMISE OF ‘BRITISH HOMES FOR BRITISH FAMILIES’ IS AS MEANINGLESS AS HIS CLAIM TO BE CREATING ‘BRITISH JOBS FOR BRITISH WORKERS‘.
On another level THE GOVERNMENT’S NEW RHETORIC EXPOSES THE BARE-FACED LIES THAT HAVE ENVELOPED STATE HOUSING POLICY SINCE 1997. For years, contrary to all evidence, minsters have arrogantly dismissed accusations that the allocation of housing was biased towards migrants. Indeed they went so far as to pretend that mass immigration has had no impact at all on housing. SUCH CHARGES, THEY SAID, WERE RACIST MYTHS CONJURED UP BY RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS. Yet the truth is of course that UNDER BROWN AND BLAIR, BRITISH-BORN FAMILIES HAVE BEEN RUTHLESSLY MARGINALISED BY A HOUSING SYSTEM THAT IS LOADED AGAINST THEM. It is the height of illogicality to argue, for instance, that the import of at least 500,000 foreigners every year has no effect on the demand for housing. These people are not sleeping in fields or on pavements so THEIR PRESENCE HERE IS BOUND TO HAVE A DRAMATIC IMPACT ON THE HOUSING STOCK, REDUCING THE SUPPLY OF PUBLIC HOUSING AND HEIGHTENING PRESSURES IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR.
Equally fallacious is the pretence that hardly any social housing goes to newcomers. In 2007 the Government claimed that only one per cent of taxpayer-funded homes are handed to immigrants. THIS WAS A BLATANT LIE. ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL STATISTICS PUBLISHED IN APRIL 2008, ONE-IN-NINE, MORE THAN 11 PER CENT, OF ALL SUBSIDISED HOMES ACROSS BRITAIN ARE OCCUPIED BY MIGRANTS.
LABOUR AND POLITICALLY CORRECT OFFICIALS USE ALL SORTS OF OTHER DEVICES TO DECEIVE THE BRITISH PUBLIC OVER THE TRUE NATURE OF THEIR TREACHERY. So they are fond of telling us that asylum seekers are ‘not eligible’ for council housing but that statement is just semantics. In truth ASYLUM SEEKERS ARE GIVEN TAXPAYER-FUNDED ACCOMMODATION BY THE NATIONAL ASYLUM SUPPORT SERVICE AND THE MOMENT THEIR CLAIM IS ACCEPTED THEY ARE ENTITLED TO THE FULL RAFT OF STATE BENEFITS.
Another favourite trick is to put emphasis on the supposedly limited rights of foreign nationals to state accommodation. But again this ignores the fact that, IN ITS OBSESSION WITH PROMOTING MULTI-CULTURAL DIVERSITY, THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT NOW DISHES OUT BRITISH PASSPORTS LIKE CONFETTI. MORE THAN 160,000 MIGRANTS WERE GRANTED FULL BRITISH CITIZENSHIP LAST YEAR, MAKING THEM FULLY ELIGIBLE FOR SOCIAL HOUSING, WHILE IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ON CURRENT TRENDS MORE THAN 220,000 PEOPLE WILL GAIN SUCH CITIZENSHIP IN 2009.
Taking the sector as a whole, it is untenable to argue that recent migrants do not do better than longstanding British families. Only last year research by Channel 4 – hardly a reactionary outfit – found that 80 PER CENT OF SOMALIS LIVE IN SOCIAL HOUSING, 49 PER CENT OF TURKS AND 41 OF BANGLADESHIS, COMPARED TO JUST 17 PER CENT OF BRITISH-BORN PEOPLE.
What is really sickening is how THE LABOUR PARTY IS SO DETERMINED TO BETRAY AND MISLEAD THE BRITISH PEOPLE. IDEOLOGICAL SOCIALISTS ARE ALMOST PSYCHOTIC IN THEIR DETERMINATION TO UPHOLD THE INTERESTS OF FOREIGNERS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED NOTHING TO OUR COUNTRY, AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF THE INDIGENOUS WORKING-CLASS. I saw this myself when I was a Labour councillor in Islington in the early Nineties. In my ward THE HOUSING DEPARTMENT HAD DECIDED THAT A CERTAIN DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE RESERVED MAINLY FOR REFUGEES. AT ONE PARTY MEETING, WHEN SOME WORKING-CLASS MEMBERS JUSTIFIABLY OBJECTED TO THIS ON THE GROUNDS THAT LOCAL PEOPLE WERE BEING EXCLUDED, THEY WERE HOWLED DOWN AS ‘RACISTS’ BY MIDDLE-CLASS LABOUR MEMBERS WHO OWNED THEIR OWN PROPERTIES.
The same pattern can be seen at a national level with THE GOVERNMENT ALTERNATING BETWEEN DECEITFUL PROPAGANDA AND CRUDE BULLYING OVER THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION…
THE LABOUR GOVERNMENT’S CAPACITY FOR HYPOCRISY IS AS GREAT AS ITS LACK OF ANY PATRIOTISM. BUT RUINOUS TREACHERY CANNOT BE COVERED UP WITH YET MORE DECEIT.”
The words and thoughts of Leo McKinstry matter. He is a respected political journalist whose opinions are regularly voiced in the mainstream. His articles have the capacity to influence millions.
As long as the same research is being cited in the national media, I really don’t care if no one but the odd academic ever bothers to try to digest any similar off-limits research posted at this site. That the treachery of those we vote for is pointed out to as many as possible. That's the thing.
