During my sojourn to the wastes of the Norwegian Arctic, I became aware that all is not well back in dear old Blighty. This came to my attention during a discussion on Sky News – or was it the BBC? I’m not sure as the sheer boredom of it was tending to lead towards the arms of Morpheus…
But I digress. The discussion was about the rise of multicultural England and how the latest ethic minority to now emerge is none other than the people that were here in the first place – the white Anglo Saxon! It seems that in the next 50 years, we will become foreigners in our own country, driven out by the influx of Arabs, Asians, Chinese and as far as I could see, just about any bugger.
Needless to say, the discussion was taking place between a couple of immigrants now living and working here.
Now I’m not a racist. A xenophobe maybe, but not a racist. I don’t mind foreigners coming to live and work here provided that they accept our standards and way of life, learn to speak English, work hard and pay their taxes. But where does that leave us?
A picture is forming in my mind of unemployed, piss artist, poverty ridden ‘indigenous English’ who are now living on reservations, deprived of basic facilities and dwelling in run down prefabs or mobile park homes.
And when this all comes to pass, I have to ask whether we will qualify for the sort of aid and charity handouts currently being dished out to similarly suffering people in Syria and the like? Probably not is my guess.
Of course, it could never happen here.
But then again, it happened in America, Australia and New Zealand didn’t it?
