    Ken Livingstone, George Galloway and Britain's Drift Towards the Politics of Race

    Interesting little piece of commentary from the Daily Torygraph.


    Beacons for Islam: Ken and George

    I’m loving this Ken Livingstone tax malarkey. The panic in his campaign team is funny enough, but for true comedy you have to read the tweets of his admirers. There’s a high-profile Leftie blogger called Sunny Hundal, normally puritanical on questions of tax, who is performing spectacular contortions on Twitter to defend his hero’s fiscal ingenuity. Do take a look.

    Anyway, I was wondering whether there was anything Ken could do to swing the mayoral election his way if it were held tomorrow. And I could only come up with one idea: go cap in hand to Lutfur Rahman to make sure he gets out the Tower Hamlets vote.

    Rahman was elected mayor of that borough in 2010 and is a mighty voice in the local Bangladeshi Muslim community. He’s an independent, having been ditched by Labour, which accused him of supporting Islamic extremists. George Galloway’s Respect Party backed him, though. And so did Ken Livingstone. Were Rahman to return the favour and deliver a bloc vote for Labour, that might just enable the old boy to fulfil his promise to turn London into a “beacon of Islam”.

    And, talking of beacons of Islam, I don’t see George Galloway being dislodged at the next election. He beat Labour in Bradford West by 10,000 votes. Never before has a by-election been won on the back of a manifesto attuned to radical Islamic sensibilities.

    But let’s not get too hung up on “Islamification”. It’s an illustration rather than the cause of changes in electoral demography – changes that have wrong-footed both Labour and the Tories.

    Telegraph blogger Ed West, a specialist in the politics of immigration, reckons we should look at the way the American electorate has realigned itself.

    There’s no major Islamic presence in the US – but parts of the country have been profoundly changed by immigration. The increasingly solid Democrat vote in urban America isn’t produced by hopey-changey cosmopolitans: as New York Times columnist Ross Douthat points out, at its core lie Hispanics who have been bought off with “very explicit and specific promises of special legal treatment (in hiring, government contracting, college admissions, immigration policy, etc) based on their ethno-racial background”.

    The problem for the Democrats is that white males have abandoned the party – not because they’re racist, but because they feel excluded from what Douthat calls the “race-based spoils system” operated by the progressive elite.


    Does that sound familiar? Ken Livingstone was the first British politician to set up such a system. Thirty years on, nearly all ethnic minorities in London back Labour. That’s a mixed blessing for the party, though. Labour now faces the same dilemma as the Democrats: the more it subsidises its emerging ethnic vote, the more it drives traditional supporters towards the opposition. Multicultural special pleading persuaded working-class voters to back Boris in 2008.

    You might think that’s good news for the Tories. David Cameron doesn’t. He hates the (very real) prospect of the Conservatives becoming the “white” party. Everything he says sounds as if it’s designed to alienate the working classes. Instead, he sucks up to progressive opinion-formers who will never vote Conservative. Nor will the ethnic groups he patronises. So he’s stuffed, too.

    I can’t feel sympathy for either party. Neither had the courage or the common sense to oppose mass immigration. As a result, Britain will soon – for the first time – suffer the fate of countless foreign countries and have to build its policies around religious and ethnic enclaves.

    sad for european country (mine ) to end up with an ethnically broken society
    I still wonder at what the traitors who made it happen were thinking (did they seriously believe they were making a better place?) (and they actually used the slogan 'diversity is strength'... ) or the idiot generations who voted them in time and again. and I think all future English will feel the same way about those people...

    No matter what those currently in power are saying, the young English children who're subjected to the UK state schooling system will be unforgiving towards these people. Our next generation will be highly susceptible to National Socialist political thinking & open to any ideas regarding race survival.

    This situation won't end well.
