It takes a nation to protect the nation

Of course, Al Beebazeera says that white Britons have left London because outside London people are paid more money (when everyone knows that is patently false).

A friend of mine told me about this story yesterday, and all the hostile (but honest) comments on it.  I told him "go back tomorrow, and all those honest comments will have been deleted".  He phoned me today to tell me I was right (I never bother to comment on news items on this website from The Ministry of Truth).

Looking at the demographic shifts, there are some interesting conflicts brewing ahead.  It seems that inner London is seeing an influx of white people, whilst the ring around inner London is becoming increasingly non-white.  I relish the day when the rich white people in inner London recognise they are trapped, and start campaigning for a wall to be erected around them (pretty much like the wall Israel has had to construct).

Why have the white British left London?

Something quite remarkable happened in London in the first decade of the new millennium. The number of white British people in the capital fell by 620,000 - equivalent to the entire population of Glasgow moving out.

The consequence, as revealed by the latest census, is that white Brits are now in a minority in London, making up just 45% of its residents.

So where have they gone to - and why did they leave?

I've been analysing and mapping the census data, and what emerges is a much more positive story than some headlines would make you think.

The movement of the white British is often characterised as white flight - the indigenous population forced out of their neighbourhoods by foreign migrants. That may be part of the story, but I think the evidence suggests it is also about working class aspiration and economic success.

Trying to track internal migrants is never easy. Just because the population of one place has fallen and another has risen does not mean residents moved between them. But there are some clues as to where London's white British migrated to between the censuses of 2001 and 2011.

While the capital's white British population fell by 620,000, the white British population in the rest of England and Wales increased by 220,000. (The overall fall of 400,000 is explained by a low birth rate and emigration.)

These maps show the change to the white British population in local authorities in England and Wales between 2001 and 2011. (Click between the three headings to see how the white British population is seemingly shifting around the country.)

Ten largest decreases in white British population. Newham 37.5%,Ealing 23.8%, Waltham Forest 23.6%, Barking and Dagenham 30.6%, Slough 30.3%, Redbridge 29.8%, Harrow 28.5%, Brent 27.3%, Enfield 24.5%, Luton 24.4%
Ten largest decreases in white British population outside London. Wolverhampton 9.7%, Coventry -10.4%, Rushmoor -10.5%, Birmingham -11.1%, Watford -11.4%, Reading -11.8%, Leicester -12.3%, Oadby and Wigston -13.1%, Luton -24.4%, Slough -30.3%
Ten largest increases in white British population. South Derbyshire 13.7%, North Kesteven 13.0%, Uttlesford 11.8%, East Northamptonshire 10.9%, West Lindsey 10.7%, East Cambridgeshire 9.7%, Mid Suffolk 9.7%, South Norfolk 9.7%, Mid Devon 9.5%, Forest Heath 8.8%

London's dramatic loss of white British residents is represented by a splash of yellow and orange. Outside the capital, the dominant blues tell a story of an increasing white British population. In some places the rise is quite marked.

The dozen authorities with the highest percentage increase in the white British population are almost all found in eastern England. Only mid-Devon falls outside a horseshoe of largely rural authorities extending south and east from the Fens.

It would appear that, in the first decade of the 21st Century, the dream of escaping to the country became a reality for tens of thousands of urban white Britons. But did they leave willingly or were they forced to move?

To find out, I have been to Barking and Dagenham, a London borough which has seen a phenomenal change in its cultural make-up over the past decade or so. In 2001, the census records that more than 80% of residents were white British. By 2011, it was statistically in the minority - just 49% of people in the area described themselves as white and British.

The story of Barking and Dagenham is the story of the white working class EastEnders. In the 1920s and 30s, tens of thousands of families were moved out of the inner city slums and into the huge council estates which had been built in the borough.

The 27,000 houses on the Becontree estate were described as homes for heroes, often allocated to the families of World War I servicemen. Another wave of Cockney sparrows built their nests in the area, having been bombed out of the East End during the Blitz in WWII.

This was a real step up for many families. Their new homes had indoor toilets and often a small garden. When Ford opened its giant plant at Dagenham in 1931, tens of thousands of jobs provided income security in the midst of profound economic depression.

Although Barking and Dagenham's population declined slightly in the 1960s and 70s, the last years of the 20th Century saw it rise again. Many families took advantage of the right to buy their council house at 30% of its market value - at least two-thirds of the Becontree estate was sold to the private sector.

In 2000, the borough was among the very few places in Greater London where you could still buy a three-bedroom house for under £100,000. The capital's buoyant property market meant that anyone who got on the housing ladder would see their home become a valuable investment during the first 10 years of the new millennium.

The decade also saw the Ford plant contract and ultimately the company announced it was closing down. The economic engine of the borough was being switched off, leading many of the local people to think about their future. In the first 10 years of the new century, the number of full-time jobs in Barking and Dagenham fell by a quarter.

For many white British households, the 2000s had left them without a job but with a sizeable chunk of capital in their home. Some had also benefited from redundancy pay-outs and pension deals offered by Ford. It was a cue for the families who had left London's East End in the middle of the 20th Century to move on again at the start of the 21st.

A closer look at London reveals how many neighbourhoods in the outer boroughs have seen significant falls in the white British population - Newham, Brent, Haringey, Enfield, Ealing, Hounslow, Merton and Lewisham almost form a ring around the capital. Only the affluent boroughs of Richmond and Kingston along the river to the west prevent the completion of the orange doughnut.

Change in white British population in London between 2001 and 2011

Ten largest decreases in white British population. Newham 37.5%,Ealing 23.8%, Waltham Forest 23.6%, Barking and Dagenham 30.6%, Slough 30.3%, Redbridge 29.8%, Harrow 28.5%, Brent 27.3%, Enfield 24.5%, Luton 24.4%
Ten largest decreases in white British population outside London. Wolverhampton 9.7%, Coventry -10.4%, Rushmoor -10.5%, Birmingham -11.1%, Watford -11.4%, Reading -11.8%, Leicester -12.3%, Oadby and Wigston -13.1%, Luton -24.4%, Slough -30.3%

Inner London saw some places losing the white British population, but quite a number - coloured blue - bucked the trend and recorded an increase.

Even central boroughs that experienced a decline in white British may have seen an increase in the number of white residents. Kensington and Chelsea recorded 17,300 fewer white British residents but the category "white other" now makes up 28% of the local population. The immigrants here are rich white Europeans and Russians.

It is a different story in Barking and Dagenham.

The people moving into the borough tend to be of black African heritage. I was introduced to Victor and Victoria, whose parents came to Britain from Ghana in the 50s. He works for London Transport and she is a nurse in the NHS - typical of the professional black families who've arrived from inner London to take advantage of available housing as the borough's white residents leave.

With a time-lapse camera, it would appear that London is pulsing as generations and ethnic groups move up and move out.

On Dagenham's main shopping street, I met a number of white locals who were planning to leave the borough. One male pensioner was hoping to relocate to Clacton - a seaside town on the Essex coast now nicknamed Little Dagenham. A local councillor told me how his parents had sold up and bought a large cottage with a quarter-acre of garden in Lincolnshire. Another woman says she had her eyes set on a little cottage in Leigh-on-Sea near Southend.

Leigh is a particular favourite. Many residents from Barking and Dagenham will have taken the train along the Thames Estuary towards Southend on a work excursion - the old beano to the seaside. Some still do, looking out of the window as the industrial landscape gives way to green fields and open wetlands teeming with birds.

Over the past decade or so, towns along the railway line between Fenchurch St and Shoeburyness have seen significant increases to the white British population. In Westcliff, part of Southend, I met a family who recently cashed in their three-bedroom house in Barking for a six-bedroom home by the sea. They keep bumping into old school friends, realising that they were joining a sizeable population of migrants from the borough.

The years between the last two censuses have witnessed significant cultural change in London, particularly in the outer boroughs. Some white British may have moved because their neighbourhood has been culturally transformed, the tea rooms and restaurants replaced by takeaway chicken shops and halal supermarkets serving the new arrivals.

But there is also a story here of white working class families that escaped from the slums and bombed-out East End in the middle of the last century, found new opportunities in London's outer boroughs and then, in the past decade - often having prospered from the housing boom and the capital's economic growth - cashed in their assets and bought themselves that little cottage in the countryside or by the sea.

It is a story of aspiration. It is a story of success.

600,000 move out in decade of 'white flight' from London: White Britons are now in minority in the capital

  • Census figures show that 620,000 white Britons left the capital in a decade
  • White Britons are the minority in London for the first time
  • They make up 45 per cent of London's population, with Asians being the second largest group


More than 600,000 white British Londoners have left the capital in a decade.

Census figures show that between 2001 and 2011 the level of ‘white flight’ reached 620,000.

It is the equivalent of a city the size of Glasgow – made up entirely of white Britons – moving out of the capital. White Britons are now a minority in the country's capital with 620,000 leaving in a decade

White Britons are now a minority in the country's capital with 620,000 leaving in a decade

The figures, reported by the BBC yesterday, mean that for the first time, white Britons are now in a minority in the country’s largest city.

At the same time, the census shows, some rural areas have seen a rise in the proportion of people who describe their ethnicity as ‘white British’.

Some 3.7million Londoners classified themselves as white British in 2011 – down from 4.3million in 2001 – despite the city’s population increasing by nearly one million over the decade to 8.2million.

Sir Andrew Green of MigrationWatch thinks that the BBC should have addressed such a serious issue less trivially

White Britons now make up 45 per cent of the population, compared with 58 per cent in 2001.

London’s population has been boosted by immigrants. Three million foreign-born people now live in the capital. 

Five London boroughs saw the proportion of white Britons fall by more than a quarter. The largest decline was in Newham, East London, where the decrease was 37.5 per cent.

In Barking and Dagenham, on the East London/Essex border, 80 per cent of residents were white British in 2001 but by 2011 the proportion was 49 per cent.

There were also big falls in Redbridge, Harrow, Brent, Enfield, Ealing and Waltham Forest. The BBC website was criticised by readers for its depiction of the change as a ‘story of success’ in which many white Britons had moved out to live by the sea or in the countryside.

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the MigrationWatch think-tank, said: ‘The BBC make a very serious mistake in addressing an issue of such importance to the British public in such a trivial and superficial manner.

‘It’s surely obvious that the main reason for white flight is because people are not willing to live in an environment which has changed beyond recognition and against their own wishes.’

Ralph Baldwin, a Tory councillor in Barking and Dagenham, said: ‘I think people left for a variety of reasons.

‘If you look back to the early 2000s many people were able to retire to Clacton-on-Sea and they saw their friends going and followed.

‘But people also watched all this demographic change going on between 2000 and 2010 and they thought, “We don’t know where we are living any more”.

‘One day they are in a place that they think is Essex and then they are living in another place. 
‘It has never been an issue of race. It’s about the inability of people to affect change. The world was changing around them and they couldn’t do anything about it.’

Behind white Britons, the largest ethnic group in London is now Asians – including those born here and those arriving from overseas – who make up 18 per cent of the population. 

Black Londoners – including Africans, black Britons and those from the Caribbean – make up 13 per cent.

The census shows the proportion of white Britons in South Derbyshire went up by 13.7 per cent over the decade.

Other rural boroughs that saw big increases included North Kesteven and West Lindsey in Lincolnshire, Uttlesford in Essex, East Northamptonshire, East Cambridgeshire, Mid Suffolk, South Norfolk, Mid Devon and Forest Heath in Suffolk.

The census shows the population of England and Wales was swollen by nearly four million immigrants in a decade of sweeping social change.

In 2011 there were 7.5million people who were born abroad living here, of whom more than half had arrived since 2001.

On Another Planet.

Bergsjon, Sweden. The district now has a ninety-three percent population of immigrants and is Gothenburg's poorest area, with the highest unemployment and the lowest income per capita. Bergsjon has also the lowest election turn-out in the city.

In the grey autumn air the district does not resemble a social pressure cooker, it looks rather boring. The apartment blocks are reasonably well-kept. There is no more garbage and tagging here than in any other area of the city. Though the balcony flower boxes, the traditional window sill lights and the typically white curtains blowing in the summer breeze from open windows, that witness the Swede's love of their homes, are absent.

For unknown reasons all of the street names are dedicated to space research. Zenith Way, Telescope Street, Space Place- as if fragments of the collapse of the Soviet Union had crash landed in a Swedish forest. In Comet Square I came into conversation with Linda Karlsson, a talkative 60 year old woman that has herself moved out of Bergsjon, but that is on a Friday visit to her mother. She claims that it was the resourceful Swedes that moved out first, led by the families with children. This because, she says, of the fall in quality of school education, a result of that fewer and fewer pupils were fluent in Swedish.

She claims that it is weakness by the authorities with regard to the rights of the original population that has made people unwilling to fight to preserve their local culture. « it was the incident with the teacher that was stabbed that was the final straw that made us decide to move out of town». After a lot of searching I finally found an article about the incident I presume that she meant.

Teachers Journal nr. 17/1999 tells of the teacher Greger Mossberg at Bergsjo School who witnessed the theft of a flat screen TV from the school premises. As he recognised the pupils that carried off the TV he reported them to the police the next day. The thieves got wind of this and that evening rang his doorbell. He opened the door and recognised one of the youths from the night before. The boy had taken three friends with him. Greger is beaten and stabbed. Two of the boys that showed up at Mossberg's home are charged in court for theft or fencing, assault and causing grievous bodily harm. But all that the court accepts as proven is that Greger Mosseberg was attacked the night after he reported the theft to the police. The two young men he pointed out are given alibis by their girlfriends and parents. The court chooses to believe them. Greger Mosseberg's claim for compensation and justice is rejected.«wild jubilation broke out among the youths present in the courtroom when the verdict was read out».

What the official explanations have in common is that they see immigrants as passive participants, clients that haven't received the help they have a right to expect from a Social-Democracy. I ring Hakan D. He was a DJ in a nightclub in Hissingen, in the early 1990's when I myself was in the scene down there. H voices an opinion you often meet on the internet, but seldom in the newspapers in Sweden, that parts of the immigrant population do not want to be included. With the sincerity that Gothenburgers are known for in Sweden he adds- yes, he talks about the Muslims. He means that behind all of the talk about racism lies the fact that many immigrants have not bothered to learn the professional and cultural skills needed in order to function in the Swedish job market.

«A stupid-kind welfare state finances this chosen self-exclusion that is marked by a growing hostility towards the host nation».

He is not willing to put his name to his opinion because such public statements invariably lead to becoming labelled racist. And in Sweden racists lose their jobs.

The Swedish researcher Maria Backman has described how Swedes that come into a minority situation experience mobbing because of their culture and religion. Backman has done research at a further-education school where talented Swedish students transfer to less conflicted schools. In spite of her findings this converse racism remains a non-topic. Other researchers have wrongly concluded that this form of racism is limited. Debating such topics is considered beneficial to far-right political parties such as the Swedish Democrats- and no decent citizen would lend aid to any such party. Those that are victims of this racism are outraged by this offhandedness. That journalists have decided that their experiences are are not worthy a mention only worsens matters.

Lets talk about the exodus of 600 000 whites ;

Romanians warn "avoid London - its full of Pakistanis" ;

Regarding the suicide of Aaron Dugmore and the racism that we the native british are increasingly becoming victims of: Every white person in this country should vote for a nationalist party. The major parties have allowed and encouraged mass-immigration. We will very soon be a discriminated minority in our country, the country that was once ours. I would appeal to every nationalist and patriot to put their differences aside and to unite against the common foe.

I have witnessed, in Norway, a teacher threatened with a pistol by a refugee from Afghanistan and a Norwegian pupil robbed in the schoolyard by a Somali that held a knife to the boy's throat. I have also been threatened with violence in the classroom and experienced the lack of will to receive an education that the Muslims demonstrate. European children deserved better than to have criminals forced upon them by Left-Wing theoreticians and to be denied an adequate education due to the undermining of the education system by mass-immigration.

I agree, but the Nationalist parties are either tiny, like the English Democrats, or off-course, like the BNP.

Tactically speaking, it could be better to work with a party like UKIP, or even the Conservatives.  Its all about finding a voice.

The idealist in me shudders. We are not working in an advertising agency full of media whores. I prefer politics when it is not circus. I am not a moralist as far as genuine members of the oldest profession are concerned. But the press are PC whores, as in the case of Aaron Dugmore, most newspapers do not mention that the bullying was racially motivated.

You have to try to determine what the masses are thinking, I think that 51% know what is going on but are rendered impotent because they can find no-one that represents them. We have to determine what we, first as individuals and then in association, mean to be right or wrong. Any political party will do, but there has to be dynamic leadership and a well-organised and financed apparatus, capable of winning elections. The message has to be simple and hammered home repeatedly and there is nothing wrong with being populist if it conforms with your own belief and feeling.

My message is simple and if I stand alone in this it will remain the same and I don't care if I repeat myself, but I try not to be a bore.

There is an England, a Europe, that I as an Englishman wish to live in. I love parts of my culture. Mass-immigration is overwhelming that which I value, and Islam is threatening to utterly destroy a worthy way of life.

Our principles and tolerance have been used against us. Limits were not set.

The solution in my view is good old fashioned nationalism and patriotism, there are many good reasons for this, one being respect for the law because they are our laws.

To put it bluntly, most of these immigrants have their own countries that they should feel duty bound to return to and help to build. And Islam should not be tolerated anywhere.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
