It seems as though all those conspiracy theories about mass immigration being a deliberate policy to change the culture of the UK may have had a point. According to a report in the Telegraph (hat tip to Iain Dale)
He wrote: “Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural.
“I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn’t its main purpose – to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date.”
Currently I’m not angry about this, I’m still going WTF! The idea that there could be even a grain of truth in this, that any government could even briefly thing that such a policy was in anyway a good idea. Especially as from tales from some immigrants that arrived here to work and marry and form a life it seems that they must have had a very specific idea of which immigrants and what sort of diversity they wanted. So really what on earth where they thinking?
For now I’m going to go to bed, and hope that when I get up in the morning this will prove to be a bad dream or a hoax or something. On the off chance that it isn’t Leg Iron has a more coherent response and possible reasons (I think the David Icke being right theory may make the most sense).I expect there wil be some choice words over in the comments at Old Holborns
I am more than a little pissed off at the possibility that there’s even a grain of truth in any of this.
