Brits who complain and often loudly, about unchecked immigration and immigration in general, are often shouted down by the left who gave birth to this problem with cries of race and anti immigrant bigotry. But these days, there have been a few (not a lot ) but a few who have said they might have got it wrong.
But on a popular news panel show, a lefty historian named Mary Beard opined that immigration was good and it wasn’t as severe as the critics made it out to be.
There speaks a woman who does not have to contend with the problem, and worse yet does not even recognize that there is one. A member of the audience spoke out and said she didn’t recognize her own town (Boston. Yes, there’s one here too) and that the problem is acute. Here’s a very short clip from that show.
The old looking woman is Professor Mary Beard who dismissed stories about the number of migrant workers overwhelming Boston as ‘myths’ and said ‘public services can cope’. The prof. like many of her kind, live in lala land.
The lady who spoke out in answer to the lefty prof said the following which is not on the video clip.
She told the panel, which was sitting in Lincoln: ‘I have a business in Boston, I have family that live in Boston and we’ve got land at Boston and we’ve had major issues with workers who’ve got nowhere to go, camping on our land and we can’t move them off because the police aren’t interested.
She added: ‘The problem is we’re not like these politicians or other people on television, we’re on the frontline. I’ve not been to university, I’m just a 35-year-old who spoke from the heart.’
Mrs Bull, whose family has a retirement home business, said she is worried that more migrants from Romania and Bulgaria will make the problems worse.
She said many workers head to the area on the promise of work, but end up without employment or money.
Mrs Bull, who has a 10-year-old son, said: ‘They are going to come to Boston because of the landworkers, the farms and agriculture, that’s where they would get work.
‘But we’ve got so many homeless on the streets, this town has so many problems that are just being swept under the carpet and the locals are crying out. Someone needs to help us.
‘I don’t want it to be about them and us. We all want to work together as one, but when resources are stretched that’s when the animosity starts, and we don’t want that.’ Mrs Bull, who now lives elsewhere in Lincolnshire, said her family has had repeated problems with migrants camping on their land and that it has been impossible to get help from the authorities and police to move them.
She said: ‘My dad and brother used to go there every day as my dad speaks Polish, to explain to them that they have to move on because we were getting complaints from environmental health, and local residents were complaining about the mess they were leaving. There were empty bottles, human faeces, needles.
‘We felt sorry for them as there was a young couple who had been promised work, they’d been dropped off in Boston, had their passports taken off them, they had no money, and they were just left stranded.
‘We gave them a bit of money for them to get some food and drink to help them out, but the numbers just grew.’
The issue under discussion being the date when in 2014, restriction will be banned by the EU and Brits will have to accept hundreds of thousands from eastern Europe. Oh boy. What a mess on the near horizon. BUT .... the powers that be should have known and started the drive to limit immigration and benefits long ago. Someone was asleep at the wheel.
Imagine the USA having to enforce an immigration ruling like that. A ruling that originates from a foreign source.
Oh wait. In a manner of speaking, it already does.
Meanwhile, Brits have a serious problem to confront, and the next year, or years, could be interesting. If predictions hold, and with the numbers being spoken about they well could, services will for sure be stretched beyond the breaking point.
Britain really needs to tell the EU to back off on that policy. Finding the politician with the guts for that will be something else. Only guy I am aware of who would, is the leader of UKIP, the UK Independence Party. There are it is reported, a number of conservatives who are switching over because of this issue and the issue generally of the supposed power of the European courts. However, it is also said that while it’s very unlikely for UKIP to win election to the top post, they can split the votes so that we could see a return to a Labour govt. And that would be a DISASTER!
If thats what it takes to get you to move back here then i would consider it a “Good Thing” Peiper.
