Britain moving toward racism
Poll: Britain moving toward racism|
Tue Mar 1, 2011
A new study has revealed a dark racist side to the British society as it found two out of three British people consider immigration damaging to their country.
According to the anti-racist campaigners Searchlight Educational Trust who commissioned the poll it "paints a disturbing picture of our attitudes towards each another and the unknown".
The survey by Populus from more than 5,000 individuals found that 63 percent of white Britons, 43 percent of Asians and 17 percent of Blacks consider immigration a bad thing for Britain.
Also 39% of Asians, 34% of whites and 21% of blacks said immigration should be suspended over economic concerns or fully terminated.
This comes as the research also found 48 percent of people are in favor of a new far-right party if it avoids using “fascist imagery” and violence with 52 percent directing their racist sentiments toward Muslims saying they “create problems in the UK”.
The shocking results drew a call from Labour MP Jon Cruddas who said the figures should "ricochet through the body politic" as they suggest parties may find themselves competing a far-right competitor in the near future.
Meanwhile, Searchlight Educational Trust warned of the implications of the survey called Fear And Hope.
"It also graphically highlights the dangers that lie ahead if the issues highlighted in the research are not addressed,” the trust said.
"Fear And Hope throws down a challenge to the political parties to really understand what is happening in the body politic and then do something about it," it added.
According to the study, the sense of belonging to the British society is also increasingly faltering as 25 percent of whites and a large part of ethnic minorities said they feel less “proud” when the English flag is flown.
The problem in the uk is the legacy left behind by Tony Blair.You don`t hear any reported resentment of any one or race or religion except muslims.Multicultural britain has not failed,we just hate muslims and islam.Since the war on terror,britain and european politicians are crawling like insects from under their rocks to talk about islam not being compatible with europe.They just hate Muslims.
I blame the cancer of British Colonialism for Immgiration to the racist, terrorist, hateful, extremist, Colonialist and Imperialist canceorus state of Great Britain from Ireland in 1167 to Iraq in 1991 and 2003. Great Britain always has and always will be a racist, colonialist, hypocrite, hateful, extremist, anti-immigrant, cancerous, toxic, thieving, greedy, psycopathic and remorseful blot in other nations landscapes.
Wonderful White Westerner:
This is nothing new, in all discussions I had we all drew the same conclusion, England is and has always been a racist country.
Irishmanin reply to Wonderful White Westerner:
I agree with what you say .... I would like to add also , that i have lived in England. They are all racist in some way, it sounds like a stupid comment but im being honest. They feel nthat the days of empire make them superiour to all others. Some will tolerate different people and pretend to be a non-racist but they all feel that british people are superiour. You may say that my comments make me a bigot, well I can say without reservation , that yes , towards britain I am bigoted.
