It was revealed today that the Conservative candidate for the parliamentary constituency of Halesowen and Rowley Regis, Nigel Hastilow, will be summoned to an urgent meeting with Conservative Party chairman Caroline Spelman to explain his comments in a column for the Express and Star newspaper in Wolverhampton.
Mr Hastilow said that when you ask most people in the Black Country what the single biggest problem facing the country is, most say immigration. He went on to say that many insist ‘Enoch Powell was right’. What is meant by this is Enoch Powell’s famous ‘rivers of blood’ speech.
Work and Pensions Secretary, Peter Hain, insisted on the Andrew Marr show that this exposed the racist underbelly in the Conservative Party. However this is just typical far-left hysteria. What Mr Hain forgot was that Mr Hastilow was expressing the views of people in the Black Country and not necessarily his own.
Although let us be honest, Enoch Powell was absolutely 100% correct. He was saying that unchecked immigration could destroy this country. And ‘surprise, surprise’ almost 40 years later that is precisely what we are seeing. But it is not just unchecked immigration that is destroying this country it also the doctrine of multiculturalism.
Unchecked immigration and multiculturalism have let to a massive increase in Muslims, which has let to an increase in mosques and this has let to home grown terrorists who try to blow up people on their way to work. If this country kept a better grip on immigration and introduced assimilation, like they have in the USA, then we would not have home-grown terrorists.
Another problem with multiculturalism is the constant pandering to the ethnic minorities. We now have a situation that employers can not employ the best person for the job but have to employ a black or asian person in order to fulfil a quota imposed upon them by the Commission For Racial Equality.
Under multiculturalism it is ok for foreigners to speak their own language and not bother to learn English properly or at all! The biggest problem with this can be see within the NHS where doctors and nurses are supposed to help patients but this is becoming increasing problematic because the patients sometimes can not understand what the doctors or nurses are saying due to their lack of correct English.
I know some Tory tossers are going to say that Enoch Powell was not right and how my comments are disgraceful but according to American pollster Douglas Schoen and University of Oxford academic R.W. Johnson, Enoch Powell had directly attracted 2.5 million voters to the Conservative Party at the 1970 general election and the Conservatives won the election as a result. So the Tories should show some gratitude towards the legacy of Enoch Powell.
I believe that any immigrants to the UK have to follow the laws of this country and be able to speak English correctly. If I went to live in another country I would have to obey their laws and speak their language so why shouldn’t we expect immigrants to Britain to follow British laws and be able to speak English.
