Squeaky wheel gets the grease...

White working-class people across Britain feel 'betrayed' that immigrants are treated more favourably than them, according to the Communities and Local Government Secretary, Hazel Blears.

A study of attitudes to immigration published today found that some members of the white working-class believed politicians had washed their hands of them.

It found a widespread sense of resentment, unfairness and disempowerment among those communities.

Ms Blears said: 'White working-class people living on estates sometimes just don't feel anyone is listening or speaking up for them.
I'm kind of shocked that the UK Daily Mail actually ran this piece. The difference, of course, between the immigrants making a lot of noise...and the indigenous occupants of generations making a lot of that the immigrants accompany that 'noise' with claims of racism, religious persecution, and usual verbage of 'victimization.'

They attach the 'noise' to violent outbursts, organized protests funded by questionable entities, and pressure upon the sitting government.

The focus of this article is people who want what they perceive to be fairness. A significant number of immigrants coming to the UK (read Muslim) want nothing close to fairness. They want...require...and endeavor for dominance and already have religious leaders, community leaders, and government leaders accepting the inevitability of Sharia law.

Too little...way too late.
