OUR MULTI-RACIAL SOCIETY NOW NEEDS TIME TO ADJUST
There is no point in hankering after a return to the ethnically homogeneous Britain of the Forties. It is never coming back.
Nor is there much point in complaining that some of those who were pilloried as racists for claiming that immigrants were “taking over” their neighbourhoods in the Sixties and Seventies were telling the truth – though they were.
A new study predicts that the ethnic minority share of the population will soar to 20 per cent over the next four decades. Much of the increase will be down to very high birth rates among some ethnic communities already established here.
The transition to a multi-racial society has happened remarkably quickly and without the permission of the public being sought by the political elite.
Yet things are not all bad. Many immigrant communities and families are making a big contribution to society and are now over-represented in the professions.
Others, alas, have high rates of welfare dependency and criminality. Some have fully integrated into mainstream British culture, others are almost fully insulated from it.
At its best, modern Britain is more culturally stimulating and free than was the case 70 years ago. But at its worst it is a country of resentful strangers living in close proximity to each other but with little in common.
What Britain needs now is a long pause in immigration to allow a core common culture that all ethnic groups observe to become established. Britons old and new need time to get to know each other.
Last week, the Star said there was 'no room for gays'. Today, there's no room for anyone new:
No MORE...WE'RE FULL
In just two generations the very face of Britain will change beyond recognition.
Research reveals that one in five of us will be from an ethnic minority, more than double the current levels.
The groups growing fastest are white, from Europe and America.
Britain has a long and proud tradition of being multi-cultural.
But in recent years the vast numbers of newcomers from Eastern Europe has put our services under intolerable pressure.
Our entire support system, including housing, schools and hospitals, has been pushed to the very limit.
We need a total halt to immigration - now.
