Immigration

Hard on the heels of articles in the MSM about a possible wave of immigration from Romania and Bulgaria comes news that Turkey may soon “come in from the cold” where its bid to join the EU is concerned as Hollande has reversed Sarkozy’s policy and is now prepared to lift blocks on some accession chapters. No doubt the hacks will be  checking on the spelling of “tsunami”, when the Turkish Weekly news reaches these shores.

The United Kingdom is not the only EU Member State concerned about immigration per se with the news that Sweden is “not a happy bunny”, with the Immigration Minister stating that “volumes are too high”, a situation that is “not sustainable”.

Reverting back to the subject of Turkey, Germany appears to have just discovered that she has nearly 500,000 more Turkish immigrants than was first thought. The discovery occurred because the way statisticians categorize people has changed, as now 471,000 children, born in Germany to families with a Turkish background and are German since birth are included. Previously children with a Turkish background did not show up in the data if their parents had Turkish roots.

Many people are of the belief that the EU is attempting to change the ethnicity of member states and thus undermine their “identities”. Readers will recall last year  Peter Sutherland, the UN’s special representative for migration, appearing before the House of Lords EU home affairs sub-committee and stating that the EU should “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states.

Of course, the people of countries experiencing what they consider to be unacceptable levels of immigration with the resultant change to their societies must not speak of such matters as to so do is considered “provocative“. This begs the question of to whom does a country belong – its peoples, its politicians or those such as Peter Sutherland? When considering  the system of representative democracy coupled with Cameron’s “renegotiation of powers” thingy, I am surprised no-one has queried how transferring the dictatorial powers of one group of people based in Brussels to another identical group based in Britain will do squat-diddley for the likes of you and I.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose?

    This was identical to the policy of General Tito, where he undermined and mixed the multi-ethnic pot of what was Yugoslavia, and we all know the end result of that.

    Do these people like Peter Sutherland never learn from history, yet they keep trying to do the same things expecting a different result. Eventually every EU country will want to reclaim their National Identities, as did the Slavs, Serbs, Croats, Macedonians, Bosnians and Albanians before them.

      Ian, that’s exactly what I fear is to come. I wonder if therefore this deliberate programme of invasion is designed to provoke civil wars throughout the Western world.

      It’s my understanding that the EU was aghast at the breakup of Yugoslavia (although Germany was quite pleased to get its wartime ally Croatia back). Now Catalonia has votes for autonomy, with other “regions” to follow, and not just in Spain. Ethnic states seem to be the only kind that work in the long run, the attempt to impose a monoculture on different peoples always failing – and I include the strife-torn USA as well as the EU and the UK. People-power is the way forward, the old regime’s cry of “racist!” notwithstanding.

        I foresee civil wars breaking out – seriously. The introduction of Article 222 is rather timely in this regard.
