UK: Housing and Immigration Demand

Cracks starting to appear

News article filed by BNP Land and People correspondent
It would appear that, finally, cracks are starting to appear in the environmentalist brick wall as far as immigration and birth rate are concerned, in connection with Labour’s mass house building debate. Up until now, the oh-so-politically correct environmentalists have engaged in every sort of mental and intellectual somersault to avoid recognising either immigration or birth-rates as factors driving Labour’s insane house building programme! However now that organisations such as Migrationwatch and the Optimum Population Trust have confirmed what the BNP and Land and People have been saving for years, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the politically correct to avoid that which is staring them in the face!

There are three main factors driving Labour’s plan for 3 million new homes over the next three years, these being:

The first 30%, or so, of the requirement is the need to cater for a change in lifestyles and the fact that people are living longer. This is what the politically correct environmentalists have been clutching at and promoting as though it were the entire problem – which, of course, it is not – far from it in fact!The second 40%, or so, is the 5 million immigrants that government projections indicate will be arriving in our country over the next twenty years!

The third 30%, or so, is the enormous population growth arising from the birth rate of Britain’s current huge ethnic “minority” communities. This is particularly noticeable in Greater London where ethnic “minority” pupils are increasingly in the majority in schools throughout the metropolitan area.

Now, whereas politically correct environmentalists have been very willing to discus the first factor (live style and longevity), they have barely even mentioned the second (immigration) and are avoiding the third (ethnic “minority” birth rate) like the proverbial plague!

An example of the “cracks in the wall” referred to, is an article that appeared in today’s Guardian newspaper. This article is the first we have seen that actually criticises (mildly) environmentalists for shying away from the issue of immigration as a factor in Labour’s countryside-wrecking house building programme. But being the Guardian, as you may expect, it fails to distinguish between the static (or declining) birth-rate of native Britons and the massive birth rate of the ethnic minority communities!


Here are a few quotations from the Guardian article to illustrate our points.

“We live in a crowded island – a truth that it has become unacceptable to acknowledge because of the unpleasant associations it brings with it. But England is now the second most densely populated country in Europe, after Belgium, and at current rates of increase it could be second only to Bangladesh in the world by 2074.”

“It’s not surprising that environmental organisations fight shy of getting into this subject. It embroils them in a host of deeply emotive and difficult debates. Immigration for one. Most of the UK population growth in the next few decades will be attributable to immigration.”

“As the environment finally gets the prominence it deserves, some environmentalists are prepared to assert that population management has to be on the agenda. Christopher Rapley, the director of the Science Museum, has spoken out on the subject; Jonathon Porritt, chair of the government’s Sustainability Development Commission, admits it is tough territory but argues that it is intellectually unjustifiable for the environmental movement not to address it. He wants to see a UK population policy that covers both family planning and immigration, aimed at long-term population decline.”

“And it gets much worse. As is often the case where there is a disconnect between public debate and popular sentiment, the British National party (BNP) is stepping in to grab the territory. It argues that our countryside is vanishing beneath a tidal wave of concrete, immigration is creating an environmental disaster and Britain could become a tarmac desert”.
