The Green Shoots of Common Sense

By ATWadmin On November 9th, 2006

I never thought I’d live to see the day!  Cameron’s Conservative Party is actually proposing something I agree with.  The Tories are to set out their plans to deal with mass immigration into the UK, arguing that strict quotas will be put on those who come here from outside the European Union.  Although I favour a twenty-year moratorium on all immigration coupled with rigorous measure to expel illegal aliens, those who come here with the intention of deliberately making this society their ideological enemy (and that includes descendants of the same), and people from first-generation immigrant communities convicted of serious crimes, there is at least some effort in finally paying attention to what has become one of the biggest causes of concern to British people over the last number of years.

In the UK we have a smaller immigrant community than several European countries.  France, the Irish Republic and Germany have larger ethnic populations in ratio; Italy has a similar number; whilst Spain and Portugal are expected to overtake the UK in the number of non-nationals in the next five-to-ten years.  However, what I think singles out this country from the rest is the pathetic way immigrant and ethnic issues and culture are shoved down the throats of the rest of us who live here.

Take the Irish Republic as an example.  10% (and growing) of the population is effectively ‘non-Irish’.  Yes, there are outlets in cities catering for, say, the nutritional culture of these communities.  What you don’t have is an RTE Asian Network; posters from public sector bodies with the (here in the UK it is almost obligatory) sprinkling of ethnic faces just to show how ‘wonderfully multi-racial’ society is; interminable broadcasts about ethnic culture and way of life, etc.

A similar situation exists in Italy.  Believe me, there is no shortage of immigrants there.  At the same time television news, culture and the printed media are not awash with stories indulging the same.  In the case of most European countries the norm is to promote the national indigenous ethos above all else.  In Britain, too many of both the Left and Right in UK politics have been apologising and eradicating the same for a long time now.

So it is all very well to cut down the numbers coming here.  What is of equal importance is to curtail the influence on public life and cultural values of immigrant communities.  The overwhelming majority of people here are still white and Christian.  There is nothing wrong in reflecting that in our political and cultural systems.

  1. "interminable broadcasts about ethnic culture and way of life, etc."

    so british broadcasting should be soley about white christian culture?

    wow.

    "What is of equal importance is curtail the influence on public life and cultural values of immigrant communities."

    again. wow.

    its hard to see you as anything other than a xenophobic supremacist.

  2. And it’s hard to see you as anything other than a conceited tit. The tone of the article suggests a reduction, not an eradication. Pay attention!

  3. ‘What you don’t have is an RTE Asian Network’

    However, I believe there is a Polish TV station, as well as a Polish edition of the Evening Herald.

  4. The title of this post is a perfect encapsulation of my own ejaculations of sanity.

  5. "The tone of the article suggests a reduction, not an eradication."

    sorry, but thats not how i see it. especially when taken in context with previous articles you have written. like youre pathetic rants from italy. a place where non-white cultures have lived for 1000s of years.

  6. I think the difference is that the overwhelming majority of Ireland’s immigrants are European while in the UK, the spread is much broader, Asian African Carribean etc.

    Also, the majority of Ireland’s immigrants only came in the last four years, Ireland has taken in more immigrants per capita in this time than the UK has in the last 3 decades.

    Maybe when these immigrants are here 30 years we will see them on the television and the like as they are in the UK.

  7. ‘sorry, but thats not how i see it.’

    Then you’re the one with the problem, pal.

  8. as a person who has no problem with people from other ethnic groups or cultures, i beg to differ.

  9. I tend to feel less that we need a moratorium on immigration – since that might deprive us of professional skills (especially in the health and technological fields) – but more that we need a simple but effective shift in attitude towards immigration.

    Instead of being a country which ‘allows immigration – with some exceptions’ we need to become a country which ‘allows no immigration – with some exceptions’.

    Listing the exceptions to a ‘no immigration’ policy is far simpler than listing the exclusions to an all-comers policy – partly because, then, you have to explain your exclusions. Where exclusion is the norm there’s nothing to explain. I can’t imagine somebody successfully gaining entry then demanding we give him chapter and verse on why we accepted him.

    Secondly, it allows the UK to be self-serving – nothing wrong with that – and also generous. Because the two main exceptions to the rule may well be:

    (1) those with skills we can make good use of – people who we can also be especially accommadating of since there’s a reciprocal relationship between us;

    (2) the parents (only) of settled immigrants who could come here and be with their off-spring in accordance with (what should be) an ideological commitment to family life.

    We would need to leave the EU first since this is probably illegal. I’m sure we’ll get over that though.

  10. ‘as a person who has no problem with people from other ethnic groups or cultures, i beg to differ.’

    I have no problem with people of other backgrounds the same as I have no problem with two sugars in my morning coffee. However, I have a big problem with twelve spoonfuls in my coffee, if you get my meaning.

    If you want to live in a multi-ethnic hell-hole, that’s fine. But should you wait from now till eternity you’ll not get this lad agreeing with you.

  11. Daytripper, what do you think that the ethnic/cultural/racial make-up of the UK should be?

  12. "I have no problem with people of other backgrounds."

    aslong as they dont congregate together outdoor. especially within eyeball didtance of you?

    "If you want to live in a multi-ethnic hell-hole, that’s fine."

    considering the two WHITE christian communites cant even get on where i come from, i welcome anybody that muddies the water and confuses the bigots.

    "Daytripper, what do you think that the ethnic/cultural/racial make-up of the UK should be?"

    just enough to make the likes of you move to australia. 🙂

  13. ‘aslong as they dont congregate together outdoor. especially within eyeball didtance of you?’

    No, I would prefer them if they lived next door to the likes of you, caused the value of your house to drop substantially, and occasionally engaged in some Jihadist chanting.

    ‘Daytripper AND ethnic minorities. Oh well, there goes the neighbourhood.’

  14. well theyd probably be an improvemnt on my current ASBO/Chav neighbours, who are white uberloyalists with a tazer as the one weapon i do know they have in the house.

    but then they are white, so maybe i should feel a little safer. and they almost speak english.

  15. Nobody say this out loud but Irelands immigration policy is objectively rascist. It is also very sucessful. We encourage Eastern Europeans who are Christian and we discourage Muslims.

    We pay lip-service to diversity but intergration is the policy. Learn Irish at school and join the GAA and we’ll all get along fine.

    Yes there are Polish editions of papers but that is market led and that’s fine.

  16. I have no problem with large scale immigration into ROI as long as there’s as few mussies as possible. Not PC but there’s my view.

  17. lisburn road is a right wee little warsaw. and the polish hotties brighten the place up no end.
