COULD A MULTICULTURAL BRITAIN
[Daily Mail-December 15, 2006]
TONY BLAIR has admitted at last
that MULTICULTURALISM has failed, but future historians will puzzle why
anyone thought it would ever succeed
After all, history is one long tale of
cultural clashes - religious, sectarian, racial and national. As they
contemplate the remains of what was once one of the world's most stable
societies, blessed with a common cultural heritage, they will marvel
that vast waves of immigrants were admitted -
AND ARE STILL COMING.
Of course , there had always been
immigration but the numbers had been small, the arrivals often talented;
and many of them not just ready but eager to embrace the British
For an explanation, we need to go
back to the 1962 Commonwealth Immigration Act. When Harold Macmillan
finally brought in that legislation, peppered with loopholes to pacify
critics, the Left sternly opposed it.
The Far left was intelligent enough to
see that mass immigration could overturn a society they hated. The
opposition of more moderate Socialists was based on a firm if
vaguely-defined belief in the
BROTHERHOOD OF MAN
- those from less prosperous
countries should be automatically welcomed.
Besides, there was the delicious lure
that nearly all immigrants would
-But that was not publicly aired.
MacMillan reluctantly introduced the
legislation, whose outlines had been drafted in 1955. As with
others in his party, he was in thrall to the Multiracial Commonwealth
fantasy, prolonging a belief that though the
-was dead, we could be-
or pretend to be -
a serious global power.
The biggest hindrance to clear
thinking about immigration and multiculturalism has always been the
'moderates' who dominate what is called the political class-party
activists, information professionals, social scientists and opinion
formers generally. these people are always proud of their 'moderation'.
MULTICULTURALISM was a natural
attraction. It sounded, you see, so 'decent'
. These predominately middle-class
moderates could also think of themselves as more enlightened than
the working class (who bore the brunt of the tidal wave of immigrants).
You encountered these high-minded souls
in the Press and TV and radio, insisting that immigration was by
definition a good thing.
THEY STILL DO IT.
-but their postal codes always give
If you lived in Hampstead or
Kensington or Richmond you could enjoy the advantages of a moral
smugness without the disadvantages of an alien wedge in your midst. When
I point out to multicultural enthusiasts the tremendous property values
in Brixton, they seem curiously uninterested.
Their cause was certainly helped by
media self-censorship. Not since the British Press kept silent about
Edward VIII's dalliance with Mrs. Simpson had the media exercised such
nervous restraint. Anything that was alarming about IMMIGRATION was
[We have at the present day the same
reluctance to thoroughly open discussion on the benefits or otherwise of
the European Union -though there appears to be a slight fissure
appearing in the 35 year-old dam of silence but no real momentum by the
pro-Europeans to sell their wonderful dream in their utopian wonderland.
We wonder WHY?]
The moderates who dominated the
Press became terrified of the accusation of 'racism'. The U.S.,because
of well-deserved bad conscience had declared that the ultimate sin; and
with our habit of importing everything American good or bad, we adopted
the same values.
Anything that might suggest their
thinking was racist had newspapers in a flap. Disagreeable forecasts
about immigration levels were ignored, reassuring figures emphasised.
Anyway, ran the moderate view, even if the numbers did prove large, our
oh-so-tolerant multicultural society would comfortably absorb them.
When facts became unavoidable, real
issues would be evaded. if the number of blacks in prison was reported
as disproportionately high, the required conclusion was that something
was wrong with the judicial system.
If there were riots in Brixton or
Tottenham , some extreme moderate like Lord Scarman would be sent to
WE WERE ALL GUILTY.
Blair's insistence that we must have
integration is hopelessly late. he says, for example that immigrants
must learn English. But there is no way to compel that on the inflow
[flood] of immigrants from Eastern Europe.
They may unlike the Commonwealth
immigrants, be less alien to British ways. But they will regularly form
their own communities rather than integrate and the process of constant,
ethnic fragmentation will be common place. Poles are already
setting up Polish branches of trade unions in Southampton - where they
number up to 30,000-and in Glasgow.
AS for the insistence that
immigration is economically advantageous
IT SIMPLY IS NOT TRUE.
it may produce good economic growth,
but income per head rises little.
The strain upon public services ranging
from HEALTH to TRANSPORT is also very costly. Moreover, IMMIGRATION has
been a key factor in raising HOUSE PRICES-inevitably in one of the
WORLD'S MOST CROWDED NATIONS.
Further waves will be coming soon from
Romania and Bulgaria but they will be 'managed'. claims the Home Office
[You know! -the 'unfit for purpose 'establishment.] unconvincingly. One
day, no doubt, from Turkey too (whose admission to the EU is supported
by the Conservatives!)
