How to become a ‘immigration’ issue in British elections and politics

After a few days in the general elections in Britain Prime Minister Teresa May has made this election in advance to strengthen the position of the Conservative Party about getting out of the European Union. The breakthrough was one of the main issues in the referendum on immigration. The main political parties have to talk about this election campaign. But before the leftists left the other politicians trying to avoid the matter. How did the issue of migration become an issue in the country’s ancient democracy? The BBC’s Ruth Alexander has searched for her. According to his report, At the age of nine, Camilla Schofield went to the United States. The area where he lived in Mijouri was divided into different ethnic groups. As a result, he always remembered the politics of ethnic politics. Then he returned to Britain sometime. Researched as a career researcher. Because at that time there was not much writing about this matter. He now teaches at the University of East Anglia. Referring to the important moment of history, he said that in the late 1940s, immigration began to resume. One of the most famous events of that time – five hundred workers from Jamaica came to Britain in a ship called Windrash Empire. There was a lack of labor in the tragedy in World War II. To fill the vacuum, the British government had the colonies in those countries, From there people invited to come. The start of a few people came through. But in the late 50’s came thousands of workers. The first major negative reaction was the 1958 Notting Hill riots incident. The police had to deploy to stop the riots. He said that the incident was centered around a white woman. Afro-Caribbean had a relationship with a man. They were attacked outside of a water tank. From there, an attack on the blacks began. The white gangs were given strict punishment for the attack. The British colonies all over the world were so independent that many such countries were being independent one by one. And Britain was then trying to establish itself as the head of the newly formed Commonwealth. Camila Schofield said, The country’s immigration policy was involved in the relation of tension between Britain and the newly independent countries. There was a desire to keep good relations with the Commonwealth countries. As a result, foreigners also came in large numbers. 20th April, 1968 A prominent British politician gave a speech at the Conservative Party Association in Birmingham. He is Enoch Powell. He knew his statement would create tension. On that day he said that if we allow 50,000 people who depend on others in the year to come, we will be crazy as the country, literally mad. It seems that the country has been busy preparing the cheetah for its funeral. Mr. Powell was part of the establishment or power structure. His speech was seen as a moment, When one of the powerful people spoke such cheap popularity language. There was such a big and long-term impact on British politics. Then issues like ethnicity are directly linked to issues like migration. That is, talking about migration began to sound like a racist statement. Camila Schofield said, the immigrants used to mean only minority blacks. The long shadow of World War II was on it. Discrimination against ethnicity, White nationalism is all related to fascism. There was a power structure that wanted to stay away from such politics. Enoch Powell was fired from his post shortly after giving a racist speech. Some changes are brought under the law. Restrictions are imposed on people so that they can not come freely. But mainstream politicians still did not issue immigration to politics. Because they were afraid. Because they think that while making politics in immigration, bad situations can be created and they themselves can be identified as racist. The effect of what Enoch Powell wanted was the opposite of what he said. Mr. Powell wanted to talk about it. To prevent immigrants But after his speech the immigration issue went away without the political agenda. Team Bailey, a professor at Queen Mary University in London, has been involved in politics and immigration specialists.
he says, When you talk to politicians, you will understand that it is very sensitive. Many people are very careful to talk about this. Talking to save themselves and talking about themselves. In the 1970s, politicians started avoiding issues like migration. After 10 years after the speech of Enok Powell, another prominent politician again opened his mouth. He is the new leader of the Conservative Party Margaret Thatcher. In 1979, in a television interview before the election, he said people were scared that this country could be flooded by people of different cultures. As a result, if you want good relations among different people, then the number of such people will reduce the fear of people. Margaret Thatcher tried to win their minds by the voters who looked at the very right political politics. He tried to avoid Enoch Powell’s malicious tunes. But he also created division and was criticized. Someone said that Margaret Thatcher’s statement is racist Some people agree with his words. Someone else said that he is speaking racist language. Margaret Thatcher left the immigration issue in protest of criticism. Then the matter disappeared from politics too. Then came the government change in 1997. Still politicians were not heard saying anything about immigration. Already there have been many changes. First, the number of asylum seekers in Britain increased from the war-torn country. Right after that is a big event. More than 10 countries join the European Union They also got the right to live and work in any country of the union. It is said from the government that maybe a few thousand people may come to the United Kingdom. But only one year came from Poland, 17 thousand, 10 thousand from Lithuania, 7 thousand is from Slovakia. In all 50 thousand. And they kept coming. The government then realized that the UK could be a popular destination for people. Anti-Conservative Party leader Michael Howard decided to issue immigration. They thought that their team could talk about this at any time before any time. In 2005 elections, a poster was released, which had the main point of view – nothing about racist talking about immigration. What are we thinking you are thinking? The left politicians criticized this poster. The Conservative party did not win in the elections, but their vote increased. They examined that The matter is not as poisonous as it was before. A large number of white Europeans came to Britain. This made it easier for politicians to talk about this. Because they were able to talk about the matter as concerns about immigration. But they have not been charged with racist behavior.
David Cameron elected the new leader of the Conservative party. He realized that the time to shake the hesitation in talking about immigration is now the time. Asked by Margaret Thatcher’s statement, Cameron said he would not use that language properly. But I think people are worried about the level of immigrants coming in. It is not the concern that people of different cultures or different complexes are coming. I think people are worried about the services they are getting. As a result, The pressure on hospitals and housing is increasing. David Cameron finally broke the silence of politicians about immigration. Liberal press media also praised him. Opponents remain silent. Rather they also spoke the same thing. Prime Minister Gordon Brown stepped up immigration policy from the countries outside the European Union. Then a new slogan was heard in his face – British jobs for British people. The issue of immigration came up in politics agenda. The shrinkage was cut. The faces were opened to the British politicians. They came under pressure from the people. David Cameron told the BBC in January 2010, the number of net immigration we would like to see in thousands, not a few millions. We put a limit on each year, on how much their number will be. Robert Ford of the Department of Political Science at the University of Manchester, Robert Ford researched the politics of immigration. Saying, This was perhaps the most significant moment in the last 20 years of migration debate. Because David Cameron said, the number of immigrants should be reduced to below one lakh. Net migration means how many people are coming and how many people are going to be released as how many people have been left to the end. Robert Ford said, We do not know why they talk about net migration without speaking about gross migration. How many people are leaving in Britain, but voters can not see it. Only people can see that they are coming. When speaking about immigration, different types of statistics were presented. It is said that its economic gains and losses The whole controversy became like a calculation of accounting. It was tried to throw things out of emotion. The problem was that the government did not have any means to prevent immigrants. Meanwhile, the number of EU members increased. Then there was temporary control over the arrival of people from Romania and Bulgaria. But it was lifted in 2014. Mr. Ford said that at that time a situation arose that there was an opportunity for a new political party. The group was named United Kingdom Independence Party, In short, Yukip This group has been campaigning to bring Britain out of the European Union since the 1990’s. Still, they could not draw attention of the people. He said, when I was writing books on Uypep, I took the interview of the head of the party. He said that for the past 15 years, I have been trying to convince the voters that they can not solve immigration problems without leaving the EU. But after the commitment of Cameron, I did not have to try again to convey the voters in this regard. They have pulled the conclusion of it. After that their support increased. Yukip became important in Britain’s politics. Already immigration became one of the central issues of politics. And at that time, the referendum referendum voters voted for the exit from the EU. 52 percent of the voters voted in favor of leaving 48 percent. It was said, An exceptional moment in this. As a result of this decision everything will start to change. The voters had a major role in the decision of the immigration policy, for which Yokip had strongly campaigned. Robert Ford said this is like sitting on the tiger’s back. You are trying to take the tiger on one side, which is a lot more logical, but that does not mean that the tiger will want to go that way. Eric Kaufman is an immigrant in the UK. She grew up in Canada A teacher at Barbec College of London University. Research has made people’s views about migration. According to him, even though the issue has been raised in the center of British politics, there are still some taboos in it. He thinks that when people talk about migration they decide for themselves a lot. They think that the newcomers are not exactly like us. He said, I remember, I was interviewing one woman once. He said, I was going to tram. I did not see anyone speaking English. I felt like I came abroad. Then one of them protested. And he immediately turned his words. He said, my grandchildren will not get a job. Politicians also started to talk to the same tactics to avoid conflict. It’s not just in Britain but it’s not. In most Western countries it has become a major political problem. Politicians still do not openly discuss this immigration issue in the political debate. They talk about its economic aspect, but do not say anything about its cultural and political differences. Do not say, because they are afraid to talk about it. Oh my grandchildren will not get a job. Politicians also started to talk to the same tactics to avoid conflict. It’s not just in Britain but it’s not.
