The decision by Birmingham City Council to stop giving council houses to “asylum seekers” is an indication of precisely how anti-British its previous social housing policy was and has confirmed that the British National Party’s accusations that British people have been put last, as completely accurate.
Furthermore, the fact that it is only one out of thousands of local authorities which actively pursued this policy, proves that all local authorities are effectively promoting policies which put British people last.
According to reports, Birmingham, which is Britain's biggest council, has taken the decision “in the interests of local people.”
A Tory councillor, John Lines, was quoted as saying that the local authority had not renewed its contract with the UK Border Agency (UKBA) in terms of which council housing was reserved for” asylum seekers.”
Apparently some 190 houses are currently occupied by “asylum seekers who have been sent to the city while their applications are being processed.
Now however, the ConDem alliance which runs Birmingham Council have decided that the houses should rather be given to locals following the news that there are currently 30,000 people on the housing waiting list and homelessness in the city has increased by 140 per cent since January.
The contract, which also includes Wolverhampton, Dudley and Coventry councils, comes to an end in June next year.
However, it is too early for indigenous Britons to presume that the ConDem coalition have really had a change in heart and are now suddenly committed to promoting the interests of British people.
A far more likely reason for the Council’s about-turn is the fact that so-called “ethnic minorities” are forming an increasingly larger number of voters in Birmingham.
According to a survey published in January this year, at least three parliamentary constituencies in Birmingham, have a majority of ethnic “minority” voters. For example, the Birmingham Ladywood constituency has a 64.9 percent ethnic “minority” voter base, while Birmingham Sparkbrook and Small Heath has a 64.8 percent ethnic “minority” voter base.
The results of a 2008 study called Mapping of Race and Poverty in Birmingham, written by Alessio Cangiano of the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS at the University of Oxford) showed that most wards in the south central part of the city and some western wards were “seriously deprived.
“ In some neighbourhoods, Sparkbrook, Aston and Handsworth, most ethnic groups experience a higher disadvantage in comparison to members of the same communities residing in other wards,” the report continued, adding that there “is a strong correlation between poverty and concentration of ethnic minorities.”
In other words, those most likely to qualify for council housing in Birmingham are from the ethnic “minorities” (soon to be ethnic majorities) and this demographic change against the indigenous British population is the most likely real reason for the ConDem change of heart.
It seems that British people are to be put last no matter what by the ConDem and Labour authorities, no matter where they are.
