It comes to something when we have to rely upon a representative of an ethnic minority group to say in the MSM what all the rest of us are thinking and occasionally saying to our friends about certain ethnic minority groups. Such is the hold of political correctness and not saying the “bleeding obvious” on our political representatives that for your average (white) politician to say what Baroness Flather did say would be tantamount to political suicide complete with ritual disembowelment from certain sections of certain sections of the media lead no doubt by politicians of the left.
BRITAIN’S first female Asian peer has stirred up a storm by claiming that some immigrant families have large numbers of children simply to milk the benefits system.
Baroness Flather accused ethnic minority groups, particularly Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities, of failing to adopt the “pattern” of UK family life.
She claimed debating it had been silenced through “political correctness” and called for benefits to be slashed to discourage claimants having extra children.
Lady Flather, 77, a former Tory now on the non-party crossbenches, made her outburst in a Lords debate on welfare reform on Tuesday.
The peer, born in Pakistan’s Lahore when it was part of India, moved to England to study for the Bar. She said: “The minority communities, particularly the Pakistanis and the Bangladeshis have a very large number of children and the attraction is the large number of benefits that follow the child.
“Nobody likes to accept that, or talk about it because it is supposed to be very politically incorrect. Well, I’m politically incorrect because there is no doubt about it that six or seven children give you a far larger income than three or four. I think it is about time we stopped using children as a means of improving the amount of money they receive or getting a bigger house.
“In the countries of origin, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis and even Indians have large families because there is no safety net. When you get old it is only your children who are going to look after you.
“This doesn’t apply here – every old person does have their pension and they will be looked after.”
She said that in education league tables Pakistanis and Bangladeshis came near the bottom, but Indian children came on top. “Indians have fallen into the pattern here,” she said.
“They do not have large families. They want their children to be educated. There is no emphasis on education in the Pakistani and Bangladeshi families.
Now statistically I don’t know if this is true or not, though the growth rate population wise in certain ethnic Pakistani/Bangladeshi communities is still higher than the national average, in some cases 10 times higher, though slowing. However the statistics do show in education that for all there is no real difference between Indian ethnics and Pakistani ethnics on a genetic level, there is a marked difference in achievement. Not all of course, individuals continue to do well in certain cases yet it does appear as if we are sitting on a demographic time bomb of ill educated benefit drones far far worse than our current problem which is still sustained by a relatively well educated if ageing generation.
What I suspect is happening is the creation of a drone class controlled by a highly (privately) educated elite who by their religion will do what they are told, unlike the current white working class. That this is unlikely and improbable (the control bit) it does appear as if our political classes are encouraging it. Though the lessons in the current middle east and the so called Arab spring should really give them pause for thought. The loyalty of Pakistanis and Bangladeshi’s is not to a political elite, but to family, clan/tribe and their religion. Nationalism as such hasn’t the hold on them in the way it has on Western masses, nor do they have the work ethic of Northern Europe, the USA, ethnic Chinese or even Hindu Indians. They are fatalists, everything is the will of their god or in’shallah, improving their lot is directed inwards to the family, not necessarily their neighbours or even their nation. This is also a major barrier to integration as a whole as they cannot for cultural reasons see past their families and become part of the larger society in most cases. A true case of I’m alright Jack and to hell with the rest of you.
And yes, they are outbreeding us, yet such is the stigma of saying something politically incorrect, that it takes one of their own to actually say it out loud. Unless we get over this quickly, we’re doomed as a civilisation.
