David Blunkett: Roma Migrants Could Cause Race Riots In Cities

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/10442352/Roma-migrants-could-cause-riots-in-cities-warns-Blunkett.html

British cities could face race riots as an influx of Roma migrants creates “frictions” with local people, David Blunkett, a former home secretary has warned.

Anti-social behaviour by Roma people in his Sheffield constituency has resulted in “understandable tensions” among the indigenous community that must be addressed to avert disorder, Mr Blunkett said.

Roma migrants from Slovakia must “change their culture” and send their children to school, stop dumping rubbish and loitering in the streets in order to soothe tensions, Mr Blunkett said.

Otherwise, the community could “explode” in the same way northern towns were rocked by disorder between Asian and white neighbourhoods in the summer of 2001, Mr Blunkett said.

Britain is now home to 200,000 Roma migrants, one of the largest populations in Western Europe, a recent study shows. Most have come from eastern Europe since 2004 and the numbers are growing rapidly. Several hundred families live in the Page Hall district of Sheffield. Locals have set up “street patrols” in response to anti-social behaviour by migrants.

“The Roma youngsters have come from a background even more different culturally, because they were living in the edge of woods, not going to school, not used to the norms of everyday life. We’ve got to change that,” he said.

Local police must persuade Roma people “not to spend all their time in the street” and discourage them from throwing rubbish and living in over-crowded houses."

Bit late in the day MR Blunkett. :angry:

Why should he care? He has plenty of money, good house pension etc.. All those migrants will ensure that the price of local services remains cheap for him and his mates. It will also help support his property price and it's more tax payers to pay into his pension pot.

whats not to like about letting in more immigrants whilst tightly restricting the supply of land hence concentrating power in fewer and fewer hand?

I wonder where they are all going to live. Not very many landlords are likely to want to rent to them (except slum landlords) and even they might be wary. I wonder if we are going to see a massive Roma camp in Hyde Park or somewhere central. Would be great if they set up camp just by Buckingham Palace or the Houses of Parliament and perhaps the elite can have a bit of cultural enrichment?

Roma migrants from Slovakia must “change their culture” and send their children to school, stop dumping rubbish and loitering in the streets in order to soothe tensions, Mr Blunkett said

There must be a bit missing from the eu principle of cross border working?

They can go to the UK and not abide by the UK laws? - what they do is just upto them? There are no eu laws that apply to cross border workers?

So it's all just a matter of their culture. Isn't there a risk/possibility that if there's enough of them that quite a few UK people start to think that some parts of their culture aren't so bad.

So that's what Blunkett meant by "dumping rubbish"?

He should have been clearer (dumping rubbish out of windows?) because dumping rubbish to most UK probably means some form of fly tipping or littering.

Indigenous locals are entitled to “grumble” about the influx of migrants, .....

Good to know what Blunkett thinks people are "entitled" to do about everything. At least he spared people from hearing him say that grumbling about it was "appropriate".

David Blunkett's a proper little elitist like many Tories. If the gap between the haves and the have-nots accelerates rapidly enough I reckon the UK is headed straight for shitstorm Haiyan.

So are we talking about a race of people who are content, as their lot in life, to simply wake up alive each morning, and that's it? No matter what circumstances they have to endure, the fact that they are still breathing means they're ahead of the game? Not one of them is ever heard to say "You know lads, if we tidied the place up a bit it might be a bit nicer to live in?" Or are they simply born into some kind of collective hopelessness?

If by 'local people' he means slovaks, somalis, ukranians, lithianians, I suppose its possible.

The British, whats left of them in the large cities (mostly the elderly) couldnt care less.

The only two 'frictions' I can think of recently is the elderly muslim being killed by the ukranian and the italian killed by, what, was it lithunians?

Maybe its like here. They would like to build themselves a nice house, but NIMBYS (or the glorious socialist secratariat) stop them?

Hmmm.

So, how much has changed since Enoch Powell famously made that same speech?
