It’s official! Immigration is a “burden”! Who would have thunk it???

Ever since Blair and Straw and Mandelscum and Campbell opened Britain’s borders in 1997 to rub the faces of the middle classes in multiculturalism we have been constantly told that immigration has been good for Britain. Anyone who has dared question whether 8 to 10 million people flooding into Britain at the rate of 50,000 a month for fifteen years has been good for our country was immediately accused of being bigoted and racist.

Various reasons have been put forward for why immigration is so great – we have an ageing population and so need young workers; we need the skills immigrants bring or even immigrants’ cultures enrich our country (FGM, forced marriages, mass rape, first-cousin marriages, intolerance, violence, terrorism, censorship etc)

Using massive figure-fiddling various, usually left-wing academics have written report after report trying to prove that immigrants make a positive contribution to our economy. One trick these reports use is to claim that immigrants pay more in tax than they take in benefits. But these reports usually don’t mention how much immigrants cost our public services – hospitals, schools, housing, police etc.

merkel and migration

There is one report by the UCL which claims to take into account the public services used by immigrants. But one of the co-authors was the ‘expert’ who advised New Labour that only 13,000 Poles would come to Britain. In reality over a million came. I think that tells us all we need to know about this idiot’s credibility and political bias.

Anyway, if immigration is so great, why aren’t the various EU countries crawling over each other to invite the immigrant hordes into their countries? Why don’t countries want the supposed ‘economic benefits’ and ‘cultural enrichment’ we’ve been told immigrants bring?

We all know why. Because immigration has been an economic, cultural and social disaster. Because immigration has led to our schools and hospitals coming close to collapse. Because immigration has pushed up the cost of housing so British people can no longer afford their first homes. Because immigration has overwhelmed our police so they no longer investigate minor crimes and, because of political correctness, no longer investigate any crimes perpetrated by immigrants, especially M*sl*ms.

Yet now, as our borders are overwhelmed by the migrant locust swarms, suddenly our rulers are telling us we must “share the burden”. Ooops. I thought we’ve always been told immigration was a “benefit”. Now our rulers are admitting it is a “burden”. It’s a pity they didn’t realise this 15 years ago.

To end, I’d like to include a Winston Churchill quote a reader posted on yesterday’s blog. Churchill explains why politicians fail to learn from history and why everything our rulers are now doing is pathetically too little pathetically too late:

“When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”

    The “elites” of Germany and France know the game is up and people are starting to (far too late) rebel against what as been done to them and their countries. Hence the desperate rush to pack as many more in as they can while it is still politically possible. They will probably have almost enough then to defeat the Right and ensure race replacement given out-breeding on benefits.

    Once the thousands of ISIL sub-humans that have come in on this last wave and started killing us at will they will then be able to put in place a nice totalitarian state to keep us all safe.

    The way this is being handled proves these people are wanted by the elites and are actively encouraging more to come. Australia has proved how to stop the flow but this is being completely ignored in fact doing the opposite in every way.

    I assume they want the cheap labour for their corporate puppet masters, more gratitude for their socialist utopia whilst giving cover behind the GDP rise (whilst ignoring GDP per capita falling sharply and debt goes forever higher).

    Absent the absurd benefits system, the positive discrimination and all the “free” stuff and immigration ceases to be any sort of burden.

    Those who want to come and work – no problem.
    Those with big families will have to work really hard – no problem.

    They say the devil finds work for idle hands to do and the requirement to support yourself rather diminishes the available time, effort and incentive available for destroying society.

    Ah yes “Political Correctness” that old nutmeg. What is it, well it was used to supplant Christian values, you know in the days when charity and good deeds were not looked upon as a weakness to be exploited, by the Chuggers for example.So who are these people that decide what is or is not Politically Correct anyway, that dictate what we can or cannot think.So what is it, well it is Censorship diametrically opposed to Free speech.When we had democracy (remember, that before the current condition where all the major parties continue with the same policies regardless of their promises) and Free Speech you could say anything rightly or wrongly, you were allowed Free Speech. Not any more, there are few places left where anything other than that espoused by our Politically Correct masters is tolerated .

    All this immigration, can we afford it? Well no , we have £8.66 Trillion of debt(Total so far.Thats £221,000 per family and a deficit(Thats what extra we owe year upon year, so the Debt is still increasing) This accrued Debt has fuelled an Unsustainable out of control Welfare State that no Government has had the guts to rein in and has given chancers all over the World the idea that this country is the land of free everything,a Heaven On Earth fantasy .This country pays more annually to service our National Debt than we do on the Defence Budget and that is while we are at record low interest rates kept artificially low(just to approach normal rtes of 2% would quadruple our Debt Service costs withou reducing it one penny), but will rise in time regardless of Government short term intervention, the Bond bubble burst will put an end to that.So how will we pay our way in the future, North Sea Oil and Gas depleting as they squeeze the last out of it, The City of London and the Financial Centre, well they have broken the Financial System and it is far from fixed to put it mildly next Crisis to be upon us soon. Industry? well the Country that gave the World the Industrial Revolution turned its back on Manufacturing long ago and today the competition has never been so fierce. So maybe the Migrant Crisis might take a different turn with us using the Channel Tunnel to try and leave this place looking for help elswhere, do you think they will all be waiting with open arms?
