Enough is enough with the muslim immigration already say leading Libs in England. Well, they didn’t actually say that, but I have a sneaking suspicion that’s what they really meant. They just can’t say that kind of thing out loud, someone might get offended. This is a hugely sensitive subject so they have to couch the issue in other terms. So let’s wade into this one looking for signs of intelligent life cloaked in PC, shall we? Fisk it with me.
From the Daily Mail UK:
IMMIGRATION-FUELLED POPULATION BOOM WILL DAMAGE SOCIETY
Immigration must be urgently curbed to stop the population hitting 70million and causing ‘serious harm’ to society, an alliance of leading public figures demanded yesterday.
They begin by trying to make this about overpopulation. But I think that’s just PC window dressing. Fertility in England is way down, so demographers know overpopulation isn’t going to be a problem for the UK in the long run. Perhaps they are telegraphing how the issue can be addressed without it becoming about culture and ethnicity, which is a big no no with these people.
The call to action comes in a report signed by a host of respected names, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey, ex-Labour speaker Betty Boothroyd and former Tory Party chairman Michael Ancram.
Whenever you see “Canterbury” you know it’s PC approved. No rightwing xenophobes here.
The cross-party group wants manifesto commitments from Labour and the Conservatives to cut net migration to fewer than 40,000 a year – compared to the current rate of 163,000.
The document pulls no punches in its warning of the consequences for society if the population hits 70million by 2029, as Whitehall statisticians predict.
It says: ‘We are gravely concerned about the rapid increase in the population of England that is now forecast. We believe that immigration on such a scale will have a significant impact on our public services, our quality of life and on the nature of our society.’
The “nature of our society,” they say. Hmmm. I wonder what they mean by that. Could they be any more ambiguous? This doc is most certainly pulling its punches.
The demand has been issued by the Cross-Party Group on Balanced Migration, chaired jointly by Labour MP Frank Field and Tory MP Nicholas Soames.
The group says it recognises a large reduction in net migration will be difficult to achieve but warns of the danger signals of increasing support for ‘extremist’ political parties.
Look what these scumbags just did here. Uncontrolled immigration is a danger, they claim. And why? Because it will fuel “extremist political parties.” Do you know who they are referring to when they say “extremist political parties”, gentle readers? They are NOT talking about radical islam, they’re talking about rightwing political parties. White racists! That’s the threat they’re using in order to justify reducing immigration! Observe how the only way they can express concern about immigration is by hiding behind those “rightwing racists”! lol! What PC cowards these people are. Do you see how poisonous political correctness is? These people are wrapped up so tight in their own speech codes they can’t even talk anymore.
Its document continues: ‘Over the last decade or so we have lost control of immigration. It will take several years to put this right.’
To put what right exactly? What do they mean? Because immigration laws could be changed overnight. He must be talking about something else. But notice how vague and ambiguous their motivations have to be, lest they be lumped in with all the rightwing racists. But to us, gentle readers, these people couldn’t be more transparent if they were made of glass.
The group calls for a clear political decision to restore control over UK borders and to break the ‘almost automatic link’ between entering Britain and later being granted citizenship.
It states ‘We are convinced that failure to take action would be seriously damaging to the future harmony of our society. Nearly a million votes by our fellow citizens for an extremist party amount to a danger sign which must not be ignored.
Again, justifying their fears of uncontrolled immigration by hiding behind those rightwing extremists. Well, I would agree that social harmony would definitely be affected. Their top down social engineering breeds precisely that–support for extremism and backlash, and social disharmony. Even though diversity is strength and all that jazz.
‘For too long the major political parties have failed to address these issues and the intense, if largely private, concern that they generate throughout our country.
‘If politicians want to rebuild the public’s trust in the political system, they cannot continue to ignore this issue, which matters so much to so many people. The time has come for action.’
Yes, it does matter to so many people, not just rightwing extremists.
In a statement, Mr Field and Mr Soames said: ‘Poll after poll shows the public to be deeply concerned about immigration and its impact on our population.
That’s right, the PUBLIC concern about the impact on the population. It’s not limited to the seekrit white racists. It’s mainstream. This is a start, folks. Meager and timid, with every effort made to avoid saying what’s really on their mind. But it shows there are some Libs out there with a pulse yet. It’s a start.
