“News today that one in four children born in Britain has a foreign parent is the clearest possible evidence of the effect of mass immigration on our society. Many people simply don’t understand how this could have happened without anyone being consulted and they are deeply concerned about the future….
“This mass immigration is dividing England into two zones. In the countryside, life continues much as usual. In the cities, multiculturalism is rapidly taking over. In London, one third of the population are immigrants and half of all children are born to foreign mothers.
“In many city schools immigrant children can find little British culture to adhere to, even if they wished to do so. Trevor Philips was right to suggest that we are ‘sleepwalking towards segregation’. Second-generation Muslims have not only failed to integrate; a small, dangerous minority are so filled with hatred for our country that they turn into suicide bombers.
“The situation is now very serious but not hopeless. The first requirement is to get the numbers under control. The Government reels off a list of measures, many of them admirable in themselves, but they still refuse to put any overall limit on immigration despite the fact 75 per cent of the public wish to see one. They are living dangerously. There is a growing groundswell of anger to which they would be wise to respond.”
