Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser

Labour threw open Britain's borders to mass immigration to help socially engineer a "truly multicultural" country, a former Government adviser has revealed.

The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and "rub the Right's nose in diversity", according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.

He said Labour's relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to "open up the UK to mass migration" but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its "core working class vote".

As a result, the public argument for immigration concentrated instead on the economic benefits and need for more migrants.

Critics said the revelations showed a "conspiracy" within Government to impose mass immigration for "cynical" political reasons.

Mr Neather was a speech writer who worked in Downing Street for Tony Blair and in the Home Office for Jack Straw and David Blunkett, in the early 2000s.

Writing in the Evening Standard, he revealed the "major shift" in immigration policy came after the publication of a policy paper from the Performance and Innovation Unit, a Downing Street think tank based in the Cabinet Office, in 2001.

He wrote a major speech for Barbara Roche, the then immigration minister, in 2000, which was largely based on drafts of the report.

He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said.

He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural.

"I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn't its main purpose – to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date."

The "deliberate policy", from late 2000 until "at least February last year", when the new points based system was introduced, was to open up the UK to mass migration, he said.

Some 2.3 million migrants have been added to the population since then, according to Whitehall estimates quietly slipped out last month.

On Question Time on Thursday, Mr Straw was repeatedly quizzed about whether Labour's immigration policies had left the door open for the BNP.

In his column, Mr Neather said that as well as bringing in hundreds of thousands more migrants to plug labour market gaps, there was also a "driving political purpose" behind immigration policy.

He defended the policy, saying mass immigration has "enriched" Britain, and made London a more attractive and cosmopolitan place.

But he acknowledged that "nervous" ministers made no mention of the policy at the time for fear of alienating Labour voters.

"Part by accident, part by design, the Government had created its longed-for immigration boom.

"But ministers wouldn't talk about it. In part they probably realised the conservatism of their core voters: while ministers might have been passionately in favour of a more diverse society, it wasn't necessarily a debate they wanted to have in working men's clubs in Sheffield or Sunderland."

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the Migrationwatch think tank, said: "Now at least the truth is out, and it's dynamite.

"Many have long suspected that mass immigration under Labour was not just a cock up but also a conspiracy. They were right.

"This Government has admitted three million immigrants for cynical political reasons concealed by dodgy economic camouflage."

The chairmen of the cross-party Group for Balanced Migration, MPs Frank Field and Nicholas Soames, said: "We welcome this statement by an ex-adviser, which the whole country knows to be true.

"It is the first beam of truth that has officially been shone on the immigration issue in Britain."

A Home Office spokesman said: “Our new flexible points based system gives us greater control on those coming to work or study from outside Europe, ensuring that only those that Britain need can come. continues here

Editorial : We have always been accused of conspiracy theorisation, we on the right, undermined, under attack and under pressure and is that not the way of oppression to devalue the arguments of dissenters. Yet we know now that our extraordinary levels of immigration were for political reasons, to forever change the genetic makeup of this nation and gift to the left a sizable voting bloc. Yet we must not forget in all this the reprehensible actions of those on the purported right of mainstream political life, one thinks back to Margaret Thatcher’s, “swamping” statement made to Gordon Burns, on Granada televisions World in Action programme in 1979.

This comment of course, completely destroyed all hopes of National Front success at the ballot and helped to drive the National Front anti-immigrant vote, towards the Conservative party, thereby ensuring for the British people continued immigration, because after all, big-business likes immigration, it helps to lower wages, flood the labour market and thereby increase profit, both labour and conservative are two sides of the same wretched coin, looking to increase votes and party coffers. Yet the fictional battle of the parties is still played out and the British people still believe it to be true, the vote sways from one side to the other and nothing ever really changes, today of course rightist sentiment runs a course through British society, it is on the back of this that the British National Party have done so well, of course this means that the conservatives are likely to take office after the next election.

Already the owned press tire of the labour party, they to look to profit and if something doesn’t sell, if papers do not shift from newsstands, from corner shops, then they must move with the public mood, however, make no mistake, the press to do not and never have, looked to the best interests of the people, only to profit. It is all a game you see, all a rather well-crafted charade and the only response the people have is to avoid voting, to show their anger at contemporary politicking by disengagement. Of course such disengagement occurs on all sides of the political spectrum and it has to be said, it is the right who are more prone to vote, whilst those on the radical left are more likely be disinclined.

It is obvious to see that no one mainstream party has the interests of the general population at heart, Labours obvious policy of speeding through demographic change is on the face of it an illegal act ,although few it is that will say so, few if any taking action. Immigrant communities and indeed all minority communities are used by the left for political advantage, whilst the welfare of the majority is not even considered, perhaps it is worth concerning next time you place your cross just what the two mainstream political parties have done to your country and will continue to do given the chance, the power dear reader, rests with you.
