Migration is a form of colonialism. Standing up for one’s own, migrant’s, rights is fundamental. Many migrants can’t vote. Many are illegal. According to the Office for National Statistics, there were 62.2 million people resident in the UK in 2012 with 7.7 million people or 12 % having been born not in the UK. In London, 7.9 million people, 2.8 million people or 36 % were born not in the UK. Why haven’t we had any immigrants’ party in the UK? Both 12 % or 36 % it’s quite an electorate, and we are talking only the 1st generation immigrants. Being second class probably doesn’t end with the first generation though. To make things even worse, according to Wikipedia’s List of political parties in the United Kingdom, there are 17 political parties with elected representation in the Westminster, devolved and European parliaments, 16 minor UK parties, 25 minor left-wing parties, 7 minor far-right parties, 4 minor religious parties, 3 joke parties, 2 electoral coalitions, 17 minor English parties, 9 minor Scottish parties, 5 minor Welsh parties and 7 minor Northern Irish parties.
