‘Drowning in a sea of migrants’

White seasonWhite Brits are set to reveal what they really think about immigration in a series of bombshell telly shows. Members of the UK’s “forgotten” working class say they are drowning in a rising tide of immigrants. And they blast Labour politicians for abandoning them in the name of “multi-culturalism”.

They speak openly and honestly in a series of shows for the BBC’s White Season, but their controversial views are sure to spark outrage. Tomorrow night’s Last Orders features members of struggling Wibsey Working Men’s Club in Bradford, West Yorks. They say they are being driven into the arms of the extremist BNP by a Labour Party that no longer cares about them.

They say the heart has been ripped from their communities as mass immigration has seen them lose their traditions and their jobs. And they warn of a bloody race war. Scaffolder Paul, 21, said: “It isn’t our area any more, it is theirs. The Asians hate us and we hate them. The Muslims get all the new houses and the whites all the sh*te houses. There will be one big mass battle start in Bradford. I give it five years and it will explode.”

BBC documentaries head Richard Klein insisted last night: “I don’t think we have given a platform to extremist political parties. We have given a platform to people whose views aren’t often heard on TV.”
