Melanie McDonagh, who once voiced her concerns over Somali mothers having too many children in west London, is back on the mean streets of Kensington — this time worrying about “the influx of Palestinians, Iranians, Iraqis, Afghans, Pakistanis, Turks and Somalis to the capital”.
“Mass immigration from the Muslim world”, she says, has led to “alienation”; and elderly white people are “encountering” anti-Gaza blockade demonstrators just walking distance from Harrods.
It’s chilling that this kind of thing could happen in such a nice (and expensive) part of town. One consolation is that “it’s something the better-off residents of Kensington usually only see on anti-Israel demonstrations”. In other parts of London, “it’s society as it is now”. Mercy.
I’m glad, though, that someone has finally said the unsayable: disability is at the heart of this immigration problem. The “one reason why much of the influx [of Muslims] took place when David Blunkett was home secretary is” — of course — “that he was blind; he couldn’t actually see what was happening”.
Ha ha. Blind people are funny because they can’t see. Another gem from the Telegraph.
