... and it's NOT the economy, stupid.
The people who want to flee Britain are not economic migrants. It is not high taxes that they object to (many want to move to France, where taxes are not low), but barbarism. They are cultural refugees in search of a more civilized homeland. (Dalrymple, W.S.J. 19 april)
ALMOST half of all Britons are “seriously considering” moving overseas, an exclusive survey for The Sun has found. The cost of living, weather, unemployment and crime are the most common reasons for wanting to quit Britain….Our poll found that most Britons agree. Three in five think quality of life will be worse for their kids than it has been for them. Just 13 per cent think their children will have it better. Six per cent of those polled are actively making plans to leave, and 42 per cent say they will seriously consider it 48% of Brits want to get out of the UK
The immigration boom under Labour led to the face of Britain changing faster than any major nation except Italy, a study by an Oxford University think tank revealed. During the five-year peak of the influx, the UK’s migrant population soared by 22 per cent – double the average of G8 countries, figures from the Migration Observatory show. Over the past two decades, Britain’s foreign-born population has increased from 3.8million – or 7 per cent of the total population – in 1993 to almost 7million, or 12 per cent per cent in 2010. Immigration boom under Labour changed face of Britain faster than any major country except Italy, Oxford experts reveal. – Rapport: A magnet for migrants? How does the UK’s migrant population growth compare with that in other high-income countries?
I The Wall Street Journal opregner Theodore Dalrymple nogle af grundene til at ønske sig væk:
A demotic egalitariansim, allied with multiculturalism, has rendered civility passé
[...] In other words, practically no behavior is now beyond the pale for the British state. Sadly, the freedom to behave badly is almost the only freedom valued by, or left to, young Britons.
The people who want to flee Britain are not economic migrants. It is not high taxes that they object to (many want to move to France, where taxes are not low), but barbarism. They are cultural refugees in search of a more civilized homeland, where fewer people are uncouth or militantly vulgar.
What has caused this collapse of civility in Britain, which was, within living memory, a civil country? In my view, it is a demotic version of egalitariansim, allied with multiculturalism.
Even middle-class people now behave in an increasingly uncouth and rough fashion in Britain because they think that by doing so they are expressing their solidarity with the lower reaches of their society. Imitation, they think, is the highest form of sympathy. This, of course, is an implicit insult to many of the poor, for poverty and unmannerliness are by no means the same thing.
Multiculturalism is damaging because it denies that, when it comes to culture, there is a better and a worse, a higher and a lower ...
Hence any conduct — lying scantily clad in a pool of vomit, for example — is part of a culture, and since all cultures, ex hypothesi, are of equal worth, no one has the moral right to criticize, much less forbid, any kind of behavior. And if I have to accept your culture, you have to accept mine. If you don’t like it — tough. Unfortunately, the lowest level of culture is the easiest to reach and, again ex hypothesi, there is no reason to aim higher.
Incivility in Britain thus has a militant or ideological edge to it. The uncivil British are not uncivilized by default — they actively hate and repudiate civilization.
