British Working Class Forgotten

UK Resistance: Working Class Action was formed because as working class people, we felt we no longer had a credible voice to speak on our behalf. Deprived of dialogue with the establishment, we find ourselves routinely ignored, betrayed by the political elite, overlooked and isolated. We believe that the grievances we hold are shared by the vast majority of the British working class and a new report released by the Jason Rowntree Foundation, shows that our sense of injustice is shared by many and therefore our concerns perfectly valid.

With this report being picked up on by national media, including the BBC, we believe that the initiative should be seized and pressure put on the political elite who continue to refuse us a voice. We, the people, hold the power in this country and we can make a difference. Please, if you too feel like you have been forgotten, copy the email below (or write your own) and email it to your MP (email addresses can be found here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/ ). These people are paid to represent you, they are accountable to you, let them know how you feel and get your friends & family to do the same. The more that e-mail, the more pressure there is, more votes are at risk to them and they will be more likely to do something. Together we can make a difference.

In light of the Jason Rowntree Foundation report http://www.jrf.org.uk/sites/files/jrf/working-class-community-cohesion-full.pdf, stating that the British Working Class (and I will say British, because all respondents were British as well as white and this has nothing to do with race) feel forgotten and as if they are put to the back of queue behind everyone else, I find it necessary to write to you.

The report was undertaken in areas of Birmingham, London and Coventry, where, in some cases,the British person is now in the minority. The general consensus from the report was that the British Working Class feel like they have no voice and are last on the priority list, this is hardly surprising seeing as government after government has lied and betrayed the British Working Class and gone back on their promises.

Rent-free housing in million pound mansions for Islamic extremists, asylum seekers pushed to the top of housing queues with cost free housing, bills, food and vouchers, EU migrants given child benefits for children not here and foreign nationals costing the taxpayer for translation costs in courts & police stations.

Labour - ‘British jobs for British workers’ Conservatives - ‘We will reduce immigration’

Two promises of intent, two promises to garner votes, two lies. Neither promise to the British Working Class has materialised, under Labour 2 million more people found employment, yet over 1.8m of those were non-UK nationals. In 2010, 181 thousand more people found employment, yet only 14 thousand of those were UK nationals. Basically, in the last 15 years, only 10% of jobs that have been created have gone to British people.

591,000 immigrants came into the UK in the last 12 months and such uncontrolled immigration is having devastating effects on our economy and on community cohesion. Integration does not happen because the immigrants do not speak English and stay in their own communities. This automatically causes tension. Then the rise in crime that this often brings as they bring their less-developed morals and behaviours into our country furthers the tension. Then when the immigrants are seen to be treated better (as mentioned above) than the lifelong law abiding citizens who have paid taxes their entire lives, it is hardly surprising that people feel this way.

Nor is it surprising that when the political elite ignore the British Working Class masses and refuse to represent them and their concerns, that people turn to what is commonly referred to as ‘far-right’ groups. Some of these ‘far-right’ groups do hold some extreme views, but disenfranchised, neglected, voiceless taxpayers have grown so tired of being betrayed and seeing their hometowns utterly destroyed by mass, uncontrolled immigration, that they simply do not care anymore. They have no other option. The ‘far-right’ groups are the only groups willing to listen, represent and importantly, care. Cameron and the political elite can dismiss large swathes of voters as ’racists’, but that just shows great ignorance when a much wiser thing to do would be to investigate why millions of people feel exactly the same way.

Other communities receive support, financial boosts and special treatment, often through playing the victim card and because those communities suffer from high crime rates and serious problems, yet the British Working Class receive nothing. They obediently watch on, obeying the laws of the land, yet the political elite sees this as an excuse to carry on ignoring them. Why? Would it take mass disorder and rioting to get noticed and receive the same sort of help?

I can only say that I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments of this report and that I too feel disillusioned, disenfranchised, ignored and betrayed by what has been allowed to happen. I feel like I have no voice, as do the vast majority of my friends and family and I urge you, as an employee of the British people, to start representing the British Working Class and addressing our concerns.
We, the people!
