When immigration effects YOUR bank account

Immigration, immigration, immigration. It hasn't had the coverage in the media it is getting today since the 1979 General Election after which it abruptly disappeared from the political radar. We have had riots, new race laws, positive discrimination, quotas and suicide bombings, yet none of these could propel the immigration debate back on to the political agenda.

So what has been the motivation to change the status quo? Why naturally the most powerful influence in the world - money. PC Keith Blakelock can be hacked to death with machetes by an immigrant mob in Tottenham and no one in authority mentions immigration. But a cash shortage caused by immigration within a local council and suddenly everyone is talking about it.

Immigrants benefit big business, private landlords and the Labour Party which the vast majority of them vote for, but it's the British taxpayer that foots the bill. This payment, however, currently comes from tax deducted at income source and, because it isn't taken directly from the bank accounts of individuals, it perhaps isn't too keenly felt.

Why immigration is hitting the headlines now is because local authorities can't cope with the numbers coming in and they want more money from central Government to meet these spiralling costs. If they get it then the debate will disappear once again, if they don't things will get interesting.

Councils will have to pay for the extra financial burden they incur somehow and the answer could be a rise in council tax. Now that is something that DOES come directly from an individual's bank account. Just imagine the scene. The council tax bill comes through the letterbox and while the recipient is still stunned by the extra 30% that has to be paid, they will see the 'multi-coloured sectional cake' which shows residents where the council is spending their money. And there will be a new section in the cake - 'immigration' and it will show householders just how much they personally have to pay for immigrants to come to Britain and take our jobs, our homes and eventually, our country.

One of the best political speeches I heard this year was at the Belah Community Centre in Carlisle, delivered by Adam Walker, a BNP official from Sedgefield. He spoke about easy credit and its consequence - how, as the credit crisis intensifies, people's 'comfort zones' begin to be eroded. This is when people's minds will focus on the reality of the political situation. "That will be our time," said Adam, and he is spot on.

When those council taxpayers are struggling financially just to survive, they are not going to want to pay £10, £20 or £30 a month so their local council can educate and house immigrant families. It is then that British voters in their millions will be marching down to the polling booth and voting in British National Party councils and councillors.

Interesting report in The Mirror yesterday concerning the alleged takeover of the Conservative Party's European Referendum campaign by the British National Party. According to the newspaper:
A report on a Pro Referendum group rally in Westminster on Saturday said BNP leaflets were handed out and activists waved placards reading: "People like you - voting BNP." An investigator in the all-White crowd for the event added: "It was frightening."

According to the last census Britain was still a 90% white country, so in theory no 'investigator' should really find an all-White crowd frightening. In years to come I expect that a predominantly White crowd will become frightening, then a majority White crowd and then a crowd with numerous White faces. Finally it will be just one White face that will be 'frightening' to the non-White majority living in Britain because it will remind them of slavery, the Commonwealth, racism, and the difficulties they experienced when they first arrived in Britain.

And finally, yesterday I missed out a 'Newspeak' classic from the Times & Star regarding the elections in May. The newspaper's circulation covers the borough of Allerdale, so it was this council's result only that concerned it. The local election results were a political earthquake. It was a disaster for Labour. It lost control of the council and the former leader of the Council lost his seat, received a derisory vote and was reduced to tears at the count. The BNP on the other hand fought four seats for the first time and came from nowhere to poll 36% in Ellenborough, 32% in Ewanrigg, 15% in Wigton and 10% in Great Broughton. But how do you think the T&S summarised the results?

"Losers in this election were the BNP who targeted four seats, two in Maryport and one each in Broughton St Bridget’s and Wigton."

It's a classic. An example of a 'journalist' interested only in grinding their political axe, clearly oblivious to the reality of the situation and the concept of factual reporting.
