It’s always interesting watching Millipede E struggle to come to terms with facts rather than what he believes ought to be the case. Particularly over Labours massive blunders with immigration, political correctness and multiculturalism. As ever it’s a case of too little too late and missing the target as well as the point by a country mile…
Segregation along ethnic or cultural lines in careers and neighbourhoods in the UK must end, the Labour leader is due to say in a speech later.
Ed Miliband will acknowledge that the Labour government did “too little” to tackle the “realities of segregation” in struggling communities.
He will emphasise his pride in “multi-ethnic, diverse Britain”.
But he will also say that universal proficiency in the English language is integral to his “One Nation” ideal.
Among his proposals will be banning those without high proficiency from some public sector jobs that involve working closely with people, such as home helps.
He will also say that local authorities should cut their translation services if that would protect their budgets for language classes.
“People of mixed race are among the fastest-growing group in the population of our country”, and this is “a development with which our country is at ease”, Mr Miliband will say.
Well he might be at ease with it, I’m not, well not with certain groups anyway, groups from countries with a culture and religion which are widely at odds with UK culture and who hate both the people here and our way of life (whilst helping themselves to our generous benefits culture.) It was Labour who opened the floodgates to people from outside the EU whilst blaming the EU for immigrants who came here to work. Scarcely a week goes by without some sort of headline involving grooming gangs, terrorists allowed to stay, hate preachers spewing their bile and telling us that all the problems they have with the world are somehow our fault. Though I rather suspect these aren’t the people Millipede E is on about, though Islam is definitely a mixed race thing being a religion after all.
No, I don’t think ‘at ease’ is the term I’d use for some mixed race or immigrant groups at all.
That said I am in favour of Councils not offering any translation services at all, the only people I believe should offer it are casualty services in hospitals and then chargeable if it turns out to be self inflicted. It should not be the job of the state to translate anything from English/Welsh in England and Wales, that’s the immigrants problem, not ours, if you can’t speak the native language proficiently then it’s up to you to provide a translator at your cost, not the states (taxpayer).
It remains to be seen how Millipede E will tackle certain ethnic or cultural groups who don’t want to integrate or partake in his ‘big society’ after all, acknowledging that your party was responsible is not the same as telling us how you’ll do it despite the inevitable resistance in your own party to any attempts to do so. For as certain as the sun will rise in the East there will be Labour MP’s who will fight tooth and claw to prevent any form of integration as they still believe they can rub the ‘rights’ (whoever they are) nose in multiculturalism even at the suicide of their own culture which some of them despise.
All in all it’s just weasel words from Millipede E, pride in the very elements which are destroying our society and no clue as to how to deal with them…
