UK Immigration Out of Control (When has it Not Been?) By Richard Miller
As a part of its mania of national suicide, the once Great Britain is being immigrated to death, with mass immigration leading the charge to its spiralling population, all of whom will be high impact carbon producers, note that Greenies and Extinction Rebellion. Indeed, a mythical climate catastrophe may make the coming crash of Britain look like a Sunday school picnic, but they don’t have them anymore in the multicultural church, do they?
“By mid-2028, the population of the UK is set to increase by three million to 69.4 million, primarily driven by immigration. According to projections published on Monday by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), 73 per cent of the growth is predicted to be due to the net international immigration of 2.2 million people. Less than one-third, 27 per cent, of the increase will be due to natural population growth (more births than deaths). The government statistics agency made that immigration prediction based on the average annual net long-term international migration of 190,000. That figure is derived from the average immigration figures from mid-1993 to mid-2018. In terms of gross immigration, 5.4 million people are expected to immigrate long-term to the UK in the ten years to mid-2028.”
British whites will race towards complete minority status, probably a bit sooner than white Australians become a minority, although the authorities and academics don’t talk about it, since it might prematurely scare the sheep; just keep commerce flowing with the money pouring into the vaults of the globalist elites.
“At any rate, by 2013, 1.24 million people born in Eastern Europe were living in the UK, compared with 170,000 in 2004 — the biggest inflow in British history. No forward planning or provision whatsoever was made for the Blairite influx. Indeed, it has been so great that it would have been difficult to make adequate provision. Hence many of our present problems. Naturally, many of these arise straightforwardly from the pressure of population. The UK’s population had nearly stabilised in the Seventies and Eighties: birth and death rates were in balance, in some years more migrants leaving than arriving. There were even very small falls in population from 1975-78 and in 1982. New immigration changed all that. Between 2013 and 2014, the population increased by 491,000 — one of the fastest rates of any industrial country. That is not all. Women born overseas contributed 27 per cent of all live births in England and Wales in 2014, and 33 per cent of births had at least one immigrant parent — a figure which has more than doubled since the 1990s. Taking into account many statistics, migration accounted overall for 85 per cent of population growth from 2001-2012. This week, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that the total number of EU nationals coming here under freedom-of-movement rules was 270,000 last year. This included a record number from Romania and Bulgaria. Overall migration, including those from outside the EU, was 333,000 in the year to December. What, therefore, is the prospect for the future?
In none of the projections by the ONS does the UK population fail to grow to more than 70 million. In the ‘Principal Projection’ (based on underlying assumptions of what is most likely to happen), the UK population (now 65 million) exceeds 70 million in 11 years, reaches 77 million by 2050 and exceeds 80 million by 2060. That implies an additional 2.9 million immigrants by 2030, not including their post-2014 children. But these official assumptions are far below the actual level of recent net migration: 313,000 in 2014 and 333,000 in the 12 months to last December. Were the 2014 actual inflow to persist, Britain’s population would exceed 80 million shortly after 2040, in 25 years’ time, and 90 million shortly after 2060. Another measure is the number of new National Insurance numbers issued. These are given to EU citizens as a requirement to work here. From 2011 to 2015, some 2,234,000 NI numbers were handed out. That greatly exceeds the number of people who arrived from the EU in that period, according to the Office for National Statistics estimates. This implies an undercount of 1.2 million, or about 240,000 per year. ONS has claimed that this is mostly accounted for by short-term migration, not included in the annual long-term migration figures.
Indeed, there are many reasons for supposing that net migration will not decline as the ONS assumes it will. On the contrary, it may even increase. Any reduction in net migration to the UK requires at least one of the following developments: Effective operation of the restrictions on welfare negotiated by David Cameron, which are subject to agreement of all the other 27 EU states — which could be problematic. Yet all commentators agree that the effects, even if they could be applied, would be nugatory. A resolution of the euro crisis, and eurozone labour market reforms (so that youth unemployment in Greece, for example, falls from its current 49 per cent). Yet economic forecasts and the current outlook do not inspire confidence that such progress can be expected any time soon. Convergence in real wages in Eastern Europe. Big wage differentials, not welfare, are the main attraction drawing East Europeans to Britain. At present, wages in their home countries are between one quarter and one-sixth of the UK level. Of course, the introduction of the National Living Wage here has further increased the attraction of the UK for migrants. Further restrictions on the number of immigrants admitted from outside the EU. But this requires political will and judges to curb their activism in human rights cases — for example, further restrictions on the number of people allowed to come here to join their spouse, by increasing residence requirements, age limits on marriage, and proficiency in English language.
Ending employers’ dependency on migrant labour and persuading them to concentrate first on the domestic population for labour. Also, perhaps, an obligation to take on domestic workers in some proportion to overseas workers. The Government should moderate its own dependency on overseas labour, notably for the NHS. UK exit from the EU. A post-Brexit government could decide to limit entry from the EU, possibly favouring highly skilled migrants. Indeed, there would be little point in Brexit without such measures. That would restrict EU inflows, most of which are in low-paid work. Further expansion of the EU is likely to increase migration even more. The apparently relentless drive to the East by the EU Commission will activate further sources of migration as more poor countries are embraced by the EU. Looking to the future, citizens of possible new accession countries (such as Albania, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Turkey, Bosnia and Kosovo) will be eligible for work in the UK once they join. Finally, immigration is making the most fundamental permanent change of all, in the composition of the population itself. In the 1991 census, the non-white population, mostly of post-1960 immigrant origin, stood at 3 million or 6 per cent of the total in England and Wales. By 2011 this had increased to nearly 8 million, or 14 per cent of the total.
Those describing themselves as ‘White British’ comprised 88 per cent of the total population in 2001. But by the 2011 census, the ‘White British’ population in England and Wales had declined by 400,000, whereas the non-white population had increased by over three million and the population describing itself as white but not British (many from Eastern Europe) had increased by just over a million. So. What might the future hold for the ethnic composition of the UK? I made a projection in 2010 that if immigration stayed at its long-term rate of around 180,000 a year as it was at the time, the White British-born population would decline from 80 per cent of the total then to just 59 per cent in 2051. Taking the projection to a more uncertain distance, the White British population would cease to be the majority in the UK by the late 2060s. However, should current high levels of immigration persist for any length of time, that date would move closer to the present. Britain would then become unrecognisable to its present inhabitants. Some people would welcome a brave new experiment, pioneering a wider world future. Others, though, might say ‘Finis Britanniae’. What does all this mean?
Some would welcome it as a move to a more diverse society. But as numbers in different groups increase, their need to integrate into British society becomes less and less, except inasmuch as they are needed to operate in the economy. And as the balance of numbers changes, the question arises as to who will adapt to whom. Some, like many Pakistani Muslims in some Northern cities, continue to live a closed, traditional lifestyle in First World comfort, with little need to adapt to their British surroundings. Such groups increase, while UK space available to the White British diminishes. The former head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Trevor Phillips, recently warned vigorously about the serious consequences of failing to adopt a strong policy of integration, warning of ‘squeamishness about addressing diversity risks allowing our country to sleepwalk to a catastrophe that will set community against community’. The truth is that very high levels of immigration make this issue even more pressing than before. I said at the start of this article that Britain is at a tide in its affairs. If immigration is not substantially reduced, the country will be transformed out of recognition by the consequences of a very large population increase: schools, housing, environment, the make-up of the people of Britain, all will change in ways in which no one has been consulted and few want. The coming referendum will not of itself resolve the issue. But it might offer the beginning of the end of an otherwise inexorable change.”
The coming non-white Britain means the end of the monarchy, take note Australians. Also, there will be an early problem about what ethnic group controls Britain’s nuclear weapons, as with France. There are enough bombs there to do considerable damage. Yet, the elites championing the Great Replacement do not seem to care about this problem. Maybe, success for so long breeds a nihilistic desire for release, just as eating fine food constantly leads to crashing marginal utility, then a final cardio-vascular crash. In the end, no doubt, we will all get what we deserve.
