Foreign workers' share of UK job market almost doubles under Labour to record high

Non-UK born workers now account for one in seven jobs after more than 1.8 million foreigners were added to the UK labour force over the last decade.

Two thirds of those have come from outside of Europe, making a mockery of the Government's claims that a cap on immigration will be ineffective because the majority of workers come from within the Union, taking advantage of free movement.

It comes as separate research found that Britain has taken in, up to four times as many workers from Europe as there are Britons working in the Eurozone.

[ This is globalization. The work ethic is dead. People used to feel, beyond making a living for themselves, that they were working to make their nation great, but now their effort is only strengthening corporate power and people from around the world are played off against each other to lower wages. Time to elect nationalists! ]

Racial admixture can be quantified by analysing an individual's face

Facial traits vary among humans, but do tend to group by population. For example, in general, West Africans have wider faces than Europeans and Europeans have longer faces than West Africans.

From their DNA profiles, Shriver could determine the admixture percentages of each individual, how much of their genetic make up came from each group. He could then compare the genetically determined admixture to the facial feature differences and determine the relative differences from the parental populations.

"This type of study, done on admixed populations shows that each person is a composite of their ancestors and that the range of facial features is a continuum," says Shriver.

Shriver found that there was a very strong statistical correlation between the amounts of admixture and the facial traits.

Vatican says Darwin is right and Intelligent Design is nonsense

The Vatican has admitted that Charles Darwin was on the right track when he claimed that Man descended from apes. A leading official declared yesterday that Darwin's theory of evolution was compatible with Christian faith, and is traceable to St Augustine and St Thomas Aquinas. "In fact, what we mean by evolution is the world as created by God," said Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture. The Vatican also dealt the final blow to speculation that Pope Benedict XVI might be prepared to endorse the theory of Intelligent Design, whose advocates credit a "higher power" for the complexities of life. Organisers of a papal-backed conference next month marking the 150th anniversary of Darwin's On the Origin of Species said that at first they intended to ban Intelligent Design from the event, as "poor theology and poor science". Intelligent Design became the topic of many discussions at the fringes of the conference at the Pontifical Gregorian University, but merely as a "cultural phenomenon", rather than a scientific or theological issue, organisers said. [There have been signs of progress and evolution within the Vatican recently. First, the pope refused to condemn the "Holocaust denier" bishop and now there is this admission that Creationism is a mistaken idea. The Catholics are now more sensible in their worldview than the Creationist protestants, who are common in the US but far less so in Europe. ]

In UK foreign workers employed is rapidly increasing while Britans are steadily losing their jobs

The UK's official statistician weighed into the debate about foreign workers yesterday by highlighting the growing numbers of immigrants getting jobs while the British workforce declines. On the day that figures showed the number of people unemployed at a 12-year high, the Office for National Statistics chose to reveal that the number of foreign workers increased by 175,000 to 2.4 million last year while the number of British workers fell by 234,000 to 27 million. Karen Dunnell, the National Statistician, sought to focus public attention on the contrasting fortunes of foreign and British workers as the country slipped into recession. Her intervention came as construction workers took part in wildcat strikes at power stations in Nottinghamshire and Kent, angry about jobs going to foreigners. [The government must be furious at the release of the statistics released!]

In Israel Jews spit on Christians

A few weeks ago, a senior Greek Orthodox clergyman in Israel attended a meeting at a government office in Jerusalem's Givat Shaul quarter. When he returned to his car, an elderly man wearing a skullcap came and knocked on the window. When the clergyman let the window down, the passerby spat in his face. The clergyman preferred not to lodge a complaint with the police and told an acquaintance that he was used to spitting Jews. Many Jerusalem clergy are subject to abuse of this kind. For the most part, they ignore it but sometimes they cannot. "When there is an attack against Jews anywhere in the world, the Israeli government is incensed, so why when our religion and pride are hurt, don't they take harsher measures?" he asks. According to Daniel Rossing, former adviser to the Religious Affairs Ministry on Christian affairs and director of a Jerusalem center for Christian-Jewish dialogue, there has been an increase in the number of such incidents recently, "as part of a general atmosphere of lack of tolerance in the country." [The only problem here is the double standards. Jews in Israel should discourage non-Jews yet at the same time; Jews should not insist that they are a tolerable facet in other cultures. ]

A Revival of Americana

The revival of Americanism on the left is as unexpected as was Obama's victory itself. Since liberals turned against the war in Vietnam 40 years ago, they have struggled to prove that they love their country even while opposing most of the policies of its government. Some abandoned the effort altogether, preferring to don a fresh identity as global citizens. The philosopher Martha Nussbaum argued in 1994 that patriotism is "morally dangerous" because it encourages Americans to focus narrowly on their own concerns and to minimize or disregard those of people in other lands. Meanwhile, conservatives led by Ronald Reagan defined patriotism as the need to stand tall against one's enemies and equated liberty with low taxes and a lightly regulated market. From the invasion of Cambodia to the invasion of Iraq, war protesters pleaded, "Peace Is Patriotic," but few on either side paid them much attention.

Then, quite unintentionally, George W. Bush convinced liberals that they should stand up for their own version of the national creed. They condemned his 2000 election as a betrayal of democracy, achieved only after he lost the popular vote and got an assist from a right-leaning Supreme Court. As the "war on terror" heated up after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, liberals accused the president of violating the Constitution by snooping into library and phone records and unapologetically using torture. Then the bloody debacle in Iraq drove many a progressive to dust off the advice of John Quincy Adams that the United States should not go "abroad in search of monsters to destroy" because "she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit."

Gradually, a liberal movement flourished, vowing to "take our country back."

[People are looking for a way to feel good about themselves, so they have joined patriotism and their leftist inclinations to try to make them more palatable. Leftism however at its core is internationalism, so when they are done being Proud Americans, they will discard that ruse again and return to agitating for world government. ]

Italian minister calls for rapists to be castrated

An Italian Cabinet minister called today for rapists to be chemically castrated, amid a growing row over vigilante attacks on immigrants that have followed a series of rapes blamed on foreigners.

Roberto Maroni, the Interior Minister, urged Italians not to take the law into their own hands after masked youths armed with wooden clubs smashed up a kebab bar near the scene of a rape at Caffarella Park on the Appian Way in Rome at the weekend.

Five Romanians were beaten savagely in the raid, and two are in a serious condition.

The attack followed an incident on St Valentine's Day in which a 14-year-old girl was raped and her 16-year-old boyfriend beaten up in the park, which is used by courting couples.

6,000 march in Dresden

German anti-immigrant, skinhead and Neonazi groups in the eastern city of Dresden staged one of their biggest demonstrations since German reunification in 1990 today, as 6,000 extremists marched through the streets, police said.

Groups tied to the National Democratic Party used the 64th anniversary of the 1945 firebombing of Dresden to hold a "mourning march" through the capital of the state of Saxony. Two counter-demonstrations, led by unions and political activists, drew almost 10,000, police spokesman Marko Laske said.

"There's nothing in Germany that could compare to the scale of this Nazi march," said Robert Kusche, an activist with Kulturbuero Sachsen, which organized one of the counter-demonstrations.

Foreign aid destroys Africa

http://www.spectator.co.uk

excerpt:


When I wrote a regular column on Africa for this magazine's left-wing rival, I was always intrigued by the contrast in responses to any sceptical article on aid. 'This reactionary bigot is clearly happy for millions of Africans to starve,' pretty much summed up the fury of white readers at having their Oxfam direct debits questioned. 'No, she's right!' replied my defenders. 'These corrupt, thieving governments should be cut off without a penny.' These comments always came from Africans.

The assumption that foreign aid is an unalloyed good runs so deep in the guilt- ridden, post-colonial West, people are often shocked to discover that many Africans, far from showing appropriate gratitude and/or begging for more, regard these contributions with both distrust and suspicion. No wonder this book is causing a stir.

While most critics are content to dismiss aid as largely inconsequential or simply over-sold, Dambisa Moyo, a Zambian economist who spent eight years at Goldman Sachs, goes about six steps further. Writing with tangible exasperation, she argues that aid is the worst thing to happen to her continent in the last 60 years and the biggest favour the West can now do Africa is to turn off the taps. A warning phone call, followed by five years to allow for adjustment, should just about do it, she reckons.

Police "still institutionally racist" in U.K.

In 1999 black men were six times more likely to be targeted for stop and search techniques, but in 2008 they were seven times more likely to undergo the same procedure than white counterparts.

The report stated: "Ten years after the publication of the Inquiry report, there is still significant progress to be made - notably in relation to the career experiences of black and minority ethnic officers and the disproportionate use of stop and search procedures against Black groups. It is difficult, in light of these continued challenges, to argue that the charge of institutional racism no longer applies."

Rob Berkeley, director of the Runnymede Trust, said: "I think it can be said that the police are still institutionally racist."

[ When there are differences in criminal activity, between whites and non-whites, it reflects badly on white behavior! ]

St George's Day parade banned as racist.

A council in the West Midlands has withdrawn its funding for a St George's Day parade after claims it had attracted some "racist elements".

Sandwell Council said it would not fund a parade through West Bromwich on 23 April but it would hold other events.

It said footage of last year's parade organised by the Stone Cross St George's Day Association showed it had been "infiltrated" by the far right.

The organisers have said the parade was "not political" and "not racial".

[ This is normally a huge parade with up to 15,000 people turning up. Really banning the event is racist, as one can be certain that any similar parade by a minority group would be allowed to go ahead regardless of the political persuasion of some amongst them. The so-called "far right" would not provoke any violence or similar illegal activity. But the problem for the State is that this kind of event is useful to recruit people to nationalism as well possibly showing the public illegal violence from racist minorities and Leftists. ]

Getting warmer these days.

(the sun is gradually turning into a Red Giant. these are the days of peace despite what time has been.)

Industrial development of India and China is sufficient to kill all life on Earth this century

The severity of global warming over the next century will be much worse than previously believed, a leading climate scientist has warned.

Professor Chris Field, an author of a 2007 landmark report on climate change, said future temperatures "will be beyond anything" predicted.

Prof Field said the 2007 report, which predicted temperature rises between 1.1C and 6.4C over the next century, seriously underestimated the scale of the problem.

He said the increases in carbon dioxide have been caused, principally, by the burning of coal for electric power in India and China.

[ The only reason such nations have had this industrial expansion is because the west has allowed it. If it had been kept in the west, we could manage it and improve it so that it would not threaten the planet. ]

Arabs "demographic time bomb" for Israel

For Israel, handling the relationship with its Arab minority is more crucial even than dealing with Hezbollah or Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Israel needs to decide how it will deal with the Arabs in its midst.

As extreme as it may sound, Lieberman's call to disown them seems to have resonated with many of his fellow Israelis. Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that Israel's Arabs constitute a demographic time bomb. He calls it unacceptable. Benny Morris, the once dovish historian who chronicled the forced expulsion of most Palestinians from the Jewish state in 1948, has turned to arguing that Israel needs to protect itself from the Arabs now living within its borders. "They are a potential fifth column," he warned five years ago in an interview with Haaretz. "In both demographic and security terms they are liable to undermine the state ... If the threat to Israel is existential, expulsion will be justified."

It's a dangerous spiral: the worse the distrust gets, the less loyalty Israel's Arabs feel toward their country and vice verso. Last week's election has brought the issue into the open. Its resolution will define the future of Israel as a country, as a Jewish state, and as a democracy.

[ Strange how Jews don't have any sympathy for the white race facing the same problems and how Jewish groups in the west take it upon themselves to accuse whites who are concerned at our demographic demise of being evil racists. ]

KKK leader Virgil Griffin dies

Even in later years, when the KKK could barely muster enough Klansmen to hold a march, Virgil Griffin was defiant.

In interviews over the years, he remained stubbornly unrepentant for cross burnings, his white supremacist views - and his part in a 1979 "Death to the Klan" rally in Greensboro where five Communist labor organizers were fatally shot.

Four years ago, he told a group studying the shootings that he never would have gone to that rally had he not been goaded.

"They told us to 'come out from under our rocks.' I don't hide under no rock for nobody," said Griffin, imperial wizard of the Mount Holly-based Cleveland Knights of the KKK.

[ RIP Virgil Griffin. Wish we had more men with such fierce devotion to the future of the white race. ]
