Results of a survey carried out by the BBC say that the majority of white working class people in Britain feel that nobody speaks out for them.
The survey, carried out for a week-long season of programmes on the BBC about the white working class, revealed that:
- 58 per cent felt that they were voiceless unrepresented, and completely ignored;
- 71 per cent believe that crime levels have got worse;
- 80 per cent say that they cannot afford to buy a house in their home town or village;
- 62 per cent claim that life in Britain have got steadily worse;
- 52 per cent said that immigration of non-whites into Britain is a bad thing, and that 27 per cent argued that it put their employment prospects at risk.
White working classes feel they are now more pessimistic and negative about the future.
This confirms that what has been happening for years, two articles on this I found on the (liberal) Guardian here, and here, but its grown steadily worse in the last decade, and will be seen by many commentators as another story to beat the current government with, and they could be right. However, this is a huge issue which the mainstream political class need to deal with. A whole swathe of society…. the white working class… voiceless and ignored.
