    Britons Fear Race Violence

    Thursday, 17 April 2008

    Almost two-thirds of people in Britain fear race relations are so poor that tensions are likely to spill over into violence, a BBC poll has found.


    Of the 1,000 people asked, 60% said the UK had too many immigrants and half wanted foreigners encouraged to leave.

    But the proportion of people describing themselves as "racially prejudiced" was down to 20%, compared with 24% in 2005.

    Equality and Human Rights Commission head Trevor Phillips said the findings were "alarming".


    Britain's last serious race riots - when violent clashes erupted between white and Asian youths in northern England - happened seven years ago.

    Despite this, the poll, carried out by Mori, found three out of four people thought there was now a great deal or a fair amount of tension between races and nationalities.

    And almost two in three feared tension was certain or likely to lead to violence, although it is not clear whether people are imagining full-blown street riots or minor scuffles.

    Mr Phillips told BBC News: "What worries me is if that friction starts to catch fire - if people do genuinely believe it's going to catch fire then we're in trouble.

    "This finding may reflect not what is happening today but the story that's been told of the last 40 years - that if you get people of different kinds together then eventually there's going to be trouble."

    The survey was commissioned to mark the 40th anniversary of Enoch Powell's infamous "rivers of blood" speech, in which he described the indigenous population's "sense of alarm and resentment" over immigration.

    Speaking of his foreboding, he said: "Like the Roman, I seem to see the river Tiber foaming with blood."

    It's stunning to see what ordinary people actually think compared to the garbage the media generally spews. I remember the BNP voluntary repatriation policy being described as fascist, and yet it turns out over half the population agrees.

    UK is Sitting on a Racial Tinder Box, Say Most Britons

    London: Britain is sitting on a racial tinder box, according to a BBC poll that reveals that most Britons believe that race relations are so poor that they are likely to spill into violence any moment.
    Almost two-thirds of people in Britain fear the impact of poor race relations, and most believe that the country has too many immigrants.

    Half of those polled wanted foreigners to be encouraged to leave the country. The poll also revealed that the proportion of people describing themselves as "racially prejudiced" was down to 20 per cent, compared with 24 per cent in 2005.


    Britain's last serious race riots occurred in Oldham and Burnley in north England in 2001, when violent clashes erupted between white and Asian youths. Since then there has been an uneasy calm in several inner city areas across England.

    Describing the findings as 'alarming', Equality and Human Rights Commission head Trevor Phillips told BBC News: "What worries me is if that friction starts to catch fire - if people do genuinely believe it's going to catch fire then we're in trouble.


    "This finding may reflect not what is happening today but the story that's been told of the last 40 years - that if you get people of different kinds together then eventually there's going to be trouble."

    The survey was commissioned to mark the 40th anniversary of Enoch Powell's infamous "rivers of blood" speech, in which he described the indigenous population's "sense of alarm and resentment" over immigration.

    I think because of mass immigrants influx in UK, as the term '' British '' been used widely by the immigrants to identify themselves therefore, I think the native British reinforce their own identity referring themselves as English, Welsh and Scottish. Perhaps I'm wrong ........

    You are correct. "They" are British and I am English.

    You think the UK is just try the USA where whites are guranteed to be a Minority by 2050 if not sooner and where currently a majority of the states with the most population are at least 25%-40% minority.

    I think this will be used to amp up PC and multikulti efforts.

    "What worries me is if that friction starts to catch fire - if people do genuinely believe it's going to catch fire then we're in trouble."

    So they will try everything to make people believe that there is no friction.

    One has to wonder, if mounting tensions will tear American democracy apart. Perhaps it is not a question of if but when?

    American Democracy wasn't designed to accomadate the group Politics that dominate todays Politics. It seems no one can agree on anything except that there is no agreement.

    I believe America is on an irreversable Road to Decline, because of unchecked Immigration. The doors were opened and now they can't be closed. And since it was White Americans who made this country great, I believe America will more and more resemble the 3rd World as more 3rd Worlders flood this country and as the Older White Americans die out....but I guess that's the way the World is...No Civilization can be on top forever.
