BBC study reveals fear of ethnic violence

21 04 2008

In Britain multiculturalism is working an absolute treat as reported by the BBC:

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

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.

Curiously the BBC study was commissioned to mark the 40th anniversary of Enoch Powell’s “rivers of blood” speech. While Powell’s speech was denounced by most mainstream politicians at the time and since, the survey clearly shows that many, if not majority of people share his views on immigration.
