The migrants who just don't belong, by the Archbishop of York

By Steve Doughty/Mail Online

* Don’t you just love it when black people speak out against the Musulmanic invasion? Its the best way to prove that Muslims and the supporting nutroots have no case about “racism”…


The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, says migrants (‘migrants’ is code-speak for Muslims/ed) have failed to integrate into British society over the past 40 yearsImmigrants to Britain in the past five decades have been treated like hotel guests who ‘do not belong’, the Archbishop of York said yesterday.

Dr John Sentamu said the failure of migrants to integrate had contributed to the collapse of a common British culture and the lack of a national sense of direction.

He called for recognition of the Christian heritage which used to bind the nation together and for a revival of the civic values once represented by myriad local clubs, churches and trade unions. 

The Archbishop’s powerful attack on uncontrolled immigration and on the Left-wing interpretation of multiculturalism that encourages migrants to ignore traditional British values, was made in a speech to Gordon Brown’s think tank, the Smith Institute. 

Dr Sentamu, a trustee of the Institute, has previously criticised multiculturalism and official neglect of the importance of Christian thinking and history. 

But yesterday’s speech was the first admission from a senior Church of England figure that large-scale immigration has brought serious problems as well as benefits.

Ugandan-born Dr Sentamu, who came to Britain in the 1970s, said it was important to remember that Britain had always provided refuge for economic migrants.

He said 250,000 Jewish people had come before the First World War, and had integrated and been accepted. 

‘What happened after the Second World War was a different phenomenon,’ Dr Sentamu continued. 

‘For the first time, significant numbers of immigrants from a non Judaeo-Christian background settled in the UK.’ 

He referred to the view of Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks that until the 1950s immigrants were like guests in a country house, who were expected to assimilate British values and to belong to the existing society. 

But with the decline of empire and the growth of Commonwealth immigration, the pattern had become more like a hotel. 

‘Guests are entitled to stay if they can pay their way and receive basic services in return for their payment,’ he said. ‘But they are guests  -  they do not belong. In the same way, migrants to Britain from the 1960s onwards have made their home with their cultural rights protected under legislation framed under a multicultural perspective. 

‘Consequently, any sense of a shared common culture is eroded, risking increasing segregation.’ 

The Archbishop, who is second in the hierarchy of the Church of England, was speaking at a time when Mr Brown and his ministers have been increasingly prepared to acknowledge problems linked to immigration. 

Dr Sentamu praised Mr Brown’s view of Britishness but warned that the Prime Minister’s vision ‘flounders if it does not allow for participation, involvement and commitment from individuals and communities’. 

He also blamed leaders of the Church of England for failing to speak out over the future of the nation as well as ignoring ‘the voiceless and the unheard in the market square’. 

Dr Sentamu said that since 2001 there had been no fewer than five ‘major government reports on social cohesion’ all attempting to ‘address the problems of a multicultural approach’.

But few aims had been achieved. This was, Dr Sentamu said, because the Government has been wedded to central control and had been reluctant to see local communities have power.

And, he said, ‘there has also been a reluctance to acknowledge the strong Judaeo-Christian heritage which has shaped our language, our laws, our education and our hard-won civil rights.’

The Archbishop lamented the collapse of the vision of Britain developed in the 1940s that underpinned the creation of the welfare state.

‘It is a tragedy to me that we have increasingly lost this big vision,’ Dr Sentamu said.

‘Memory loss has made Britain sleepwalk on streets supposedly paved with gold but sadly littered with promissory notes whose cash value is the credit crunch and the economic downturn as well as becoming a country that is not at ease with itself.’

Communities Secretary Hazel Blears has said since the New Year that many poorer white people feel betrayed and ignored by authorities and that they fear losing out in the share-out of public benefits. She has also admitted that Labour allowed a ‘free-for-all’ in immigration since it took power in 1997.

  1. How sad and very telling it is that it takes a Black immigrant Bishop to put to shame the Scottish Mafia of the British Government who are bring UK to its knees with their PC, Multi Culti, Yuman Rites, Elf n Safety abominations foisted on I must admit a somewhat gullible public.

  2. It is extremely saddening to note that a non white loyal Britisher has to make these statements in the endeavour to open the eyes and ears and what else of the rest of the British population. Be warned. You have no choice. The migrants have been brainwashed from young with one objective only. The creation of the Caliphate. Jihad and the promise in Muslim Paradise of 72 Birgins and loads of nubile pinkish boys. Oh Boy !!. Who would not want them.

    These migrants are already living lunatics. They have no sense of reasoning and are not allowed to reason. Like soldier ants in an ant colony their durty is only to carry out the bidding of their masters.

    Being a paedeophile is nothing strange to them. Many of them may be descendants of such like personalities. Since they can have 4 wives at one given time, they breed like the pigs BUT they do not accept the pigs as their LOGO. In fact the pigs should be the logo.

    If the British DHIMMIES are going to be condescending to the migrants and do not start acting like what the Italians and Belgians are starting to do, we will soon be visiting the Caliphate of UKRABIA where stoning of the British women at the football stadiums would be the bigest past time for the Britishers. Since alchohol would be banned , their lives would be a misery and so in the end – they would also have themselves stoned. Or, possibly become a part of the migrant community and then become a JIHADI and go up to Paradise to taste the fruits of the 72 Virgins.

    Britain. Wake Up. Do not continue to be DHIMMIES.
