PATRIOTIC ALTERNATIVE (3/20) – The Demographic Question

Patriotic Alternative, part 3/20. Originally published by White-Papers

Welcome to the fifth instalment of our latest project, published first on Telegram, and syndicated here on the Hyphen-Report. We are reviewing the policies and political platforms of White Nationalist, Ethno-Nationalist and Pro-White political parties. And we are looking for practical answers to the broad question:

“How could our Nations actually be reformed? How could any of this be done?

We believe it is helpful to reformulate this question in more concrete and particular terms. So in parts one and three of the series we looked at a specific contemporary Nation, and asked:

“How could the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland be reformed according to the principle of Ethno-Nationalism? How could this be done, politically?”

And we found that the feasibility of both enshrining the Ethno-Nationalist principle in law and taking control of Britain’s borders can be clearly demonstrated, without the aid of far-fetched hypothetical changes to the British Constitution.

Demographics are destiny

In this instalment, we turn to what must be the central concern of any pro-White and Ethno-Nationalist political party – the control and maintenance of demographics. If a Nationalist party came to power, what could be done within the British political system, as it stands now, to arrest and reverse the tidal wave of demographic change that is turning Britain into a non-White country?And how can this be done peacefully, with the use of humane incentives rather than forceful coercion? As before, we will be answering question question with reference to the manifesto of Patriotic Alternative (PA), the British Nationalist party led by Mark Collett.

Since large scale non-White immigration to Britain began, in the years following the Second World War, the damage wrought by this immigration to the social fabric of the Nation has been obvious to anyone with eyes to see. Over the decades, sincere attempts to sound a warning bell have been made, both from outside the Establishment and occasionally from within it – most famously in the late 1960s by the renegade Conservative parliamentarian Enoch Powell. And between 1966 and 1970, Powell’s party, then led by Edward Heath and sitting in opposition to Prime Minister Harold Wilson’s Labour government, made half-hearted manifesto gestures toward curbing further inflows of migrant workers and their families, and introducing a policy of voluntary repatriation. To state the painfully obvious: nothing was done. All voices raised in alarm were ignored or silenced, and the subject of the racial composition of the Nation slowly became politically incorrect to the point of being unutterable on any ‘respectable’ platform.

The National situation is now many times worse than it was when men like Enoch Powell and Edward Heath were in their political prime: according to a November 2021 research briefing presented to the House of Commons, the ethnic minority population of the United Kingdom currently sits at roughly 9.4 million people, around 14% of the total populace. The political decision making (and lack of decision-making) that has led Britain to this point is not rooted in any inherent feature of the system, nor, as we have already noted, has their been a complacent lack of awareness of demographic decline – the problem is not one of institutions and laws, and it is not one of vision; the problem is the absence of political will.

Mark Collett and Patriotic Alternative possess the will. The core principle of the politics of Patriotic Alternative is that of Ethno-Nationalism: therefore addressing the demographic catastrophe facing Britain is at the centre of PA’s political mission.

3. Demographics of the UK

Demographic trends forecast that the indigenous people of the UK will be a minority by 2060. To counter this trend, those of immigrant descent who have obtained British passports will be offered generous financial incentives in order to return to their ancestral homelands. This process will be carried out in a way that is mutually beneficial to both the British people and returnees.

The UK should be governed by the British people for the benefit of the British people. Never should a foreign power be allowed to unduly influence the way the British state conducts its affairs. Equally, no immigrant-descended person should ever be allowed to take decisions regarding the ethnic composition of the UK.

Here we see two distinct policy proposals:

  1. Those of immigrant descent who have obtained British passports will be offered generous financial incentives in order to return to their ancestral homelands.

    2. No immigrant-descended person should ever be allowed to take decisions regarding the ethnic composition of the UK.

The first policy, which has as its goal nothing less than the restoration of the native British as the dominant ethnic group in the United Kingdom, is arguably the more important of the two: unless something is done to prevent the ethnic displacement of the British in their own country, the true Britain will cease to be anything other than a disdained historical memory. We will therefore spend the majority of the rest of this instalment discussing Patriotic Alternative’s centre-piece repatriation policy of financial incentives, plus some other ways and means by which the ethnic minority populations resident within Britain could be peacefully returned to their ancestral countries. However, the question of foreign influence and decision making in politics is, of course, important, and we will address it briefly at the end.

Providing peaceful emigration solutions

Patriotic Alternative’s plan to generously pay several million ethnic minority citizens of the United Kingdom to return to their homeland (or, if they chose, another non-White country) may on first inspection appear politically unrealistic, perhaps even ludicrous. But an examination of the existing body of UK policies reveals a clear precedent in the form of a voluntary return program for visa holders, asylum seekers, people who have visited and over-stayed, and other persons of temporary or unsettled residence. The United Kingdom also routinely checks whether or not UK citizens of questionable standing qualify for citizenship in other countries; famously, in the case of Shamima Begum, dubbed the ‘Isis Bride’ by the British media, determining that Miss Begum was eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship prior to stripping her of her British citizenship for her involvement with the Islamic State terrorist militia.

A sitting of the United Kingdom’s lower house of Parliament, The House of Commons

To expand these programs to meet the goals of a Patriotic Alternative government, a parliamentary bill would be required. Such a piece of legislation would enable the government to launch a program of much greater scope whereby any citizen of immigrant descent would be able to turn over their British passport in exchange for residency in another country and a generous financial settlement from the British treasury. Though the amount per-capita of this proposed settlement is unspecified in the PA platform, it is the recommendation of White-Papers that it be approximately double the average yearly income in the United Kingdom, which currently stands at £31,285 ($41,945/€37,209); those those who who elected to return home would receive a figure somewhere around £63,000, including relocation costs.

A mutually beneficial arrangement

To put this sum in perspective: it is equivalent to approximately 38 years-worth of salary in Pakistan and India (regions where over 2.5 million residents of the United Kingdom have ethnic roots), 8 years-worth of salary in the Caribbean, while in some African States the amount would equate to 80 years of earned income: in any case, granting the people so gifted with an excellent quality of life in their respective homelands, where they and their co-ethnics will also benefit enormously from the education and skills training received during the immigrants’ time spent in the West.

The financial provision of this policy could be supplemented with other forms of support as appropriate to the individual’s circumstances. For example, the 8% of British senior citizens who belong to an ethnic minority could, in principle, continue to receive their British State Pension after they return to their place of origin; likewise, those who have served in the British armed forces could retain the standard benefits granted to ex-servicemen. There is no moral incongruity between wishing to restore the native British as the dominant ethnic group in their homeland, and frankly acknowledging that some immigrants have worked in our economy for decades, or performed military service for the Nation, and that accordingly the British State should guarantee certain privileges to them.

The financial costs to Britain

But what of the cost to the taxpayer? The good news is that the enactment of this policy would not break the bank. If we estimate that roughly 5.8 million people are eligible, and for the sake of argument assuming that the most of that number would take the money on offer, the exchequer of the United Kingdom would have to find roughly £363 billion ($486.5 billion/€431.6 billion) to fund the programme. Spread over twelve years, this would amount to £30.2 billion a year, or roughly one quarter the amount we currently estimate is spent on ethnic minorities each year by the United Kingdom’s Welfare State, according to a House of Commons report on public spending per capita. To pay one individual the £62,570 relocation benefit would be equivalent to approximately 4 years of public expenditure on them and save the British public a total of £1.086 million pounds were said theoretical individuals to reside in the UK for the full 81 year life expectancy the country currency enjoys.

There should be no worries about an economic collapse caused by removing so many people from the system. The twelve-year transition allows enough time for the training of new doctors and nurses, and ongoing innovations in automation mean that the checkout counters at ASDA need not be exclusively operated by humans. What about the consequences of reducing the tax base? Let’s find out: studies in New Zealand have shown that the only net tax payers are men; while in the United States, a country with a White population share 21.1% lower than Britain, the White population pay 83% of all taxes in a normal fiscal year. It is safe to assume that the male British population will continue to dutifully pay their taxes after the immigrants go home; a return to a White Britain will NOT create the dire economic misfortune that the Establishment and its cheerleaders cynically prophesy whenever it suits their propaganda purposes.

Financial incentives would be Patriotic Alternative’s preferred way of persuading the ‘settled’ immigrant, or his descendants of multiple generations, to leave Britain. Other measures would be more appropriate for those who only have looser or more recent ties to the country (or in the case of criminals, terrorists, and other disturbers of the peace, have already forfeited any and all ties).

What could be done immediately

What follows is a brief outline of actions that a Patriotic Alternative government could take immediately upon assuming power. All are not only legal within the British Constitution as presently understood, but also ethical relative to the norms of the common man (in Britain, a traditionally peace-loving entity).

2.1 million people belonging to an ethnic-minority currently hold residential visas in the United Kingdom. This group represents around 22.5% of the total ethnic minority population of the UK, (which, as already noted, is roughly 9.4 million people). The bureaucratic purpose of the visa system was NOT to provide one link in a chain inevitably leading to citizenship and permanent residency. Rather it is a permit allowing the holder a temporary period of legal residence. A Patriotic Alternative government could simply implement the gradual cancellation and non-renewal of visas, and in doing so would be acting entirely within the bounds of the British Constitution, and indeed the norms understood anywhere in the civilised world.

What about immigrants who have been naturalised? An analysis has shown over 50% of Asians and 40% of Africans in the United Kingdom are liable for or already possess dual nationality. Is it just politically impossible for the British State to revoke citizenship once it is conferred? It turns out that laws are already on the books that, in some circumstances, provide extensive powers for the State to undo what has been done: in cases of dual citizenship, legislation exists which currently enables the Home Secretary to denaturalise any dual national of the UK – determining that an individual is legally subject to denaturalisation is achieved by applying one or more of three criteria: a) should it be considered that doing so is conducive to the public good; b) if the person obtained their citizenship through fraud, false representation or concealment; or c) if the persons has conducted himself or herself in a manner which is, quote: “seriously prejudicial to the vital interests of the United Kingdom”. These existing powers could be utilized to begin the process of de-naturalising and deporting some of the over 1.6 million people in the ethnic minority population who possess a criminal record.

Where there is a will, there is a way

So it can be clearly seen that there exists within the British system, ample law and precedent to, in the case of nearly 4 million persons of either temporary residency, or of whom the State can reasonably deem their ‘citizenship in good standing’ is questionable, either revoke citizenship or residency permit; and in the case of perhaps 5 million or more ‘settled’ foreigners, provide generous financial incentives in return for voluntary repatriation.

Guarding the prosperity of the British homeland

Finally, let us return to briefly address the second policy principle outlined within point three of the Patriotic Alternative platform, which addresses a concern less pressing in the short term than the reality of demographic numbers, but is nevertheless of great importance to any Nationalist government which cares for the long-term welfare of the people it represents. The PA platform document states that:

No immigrant-descended person should ever be allowed to take decisions regarding the ethnic composition of the UK.”

The decisions that have resulted in the massive change to the racial composition of the United Kingdom were not, of course, made by ordinary immigrants; they were made by successive British governments; albeit governments acting under the influence of powerfully persuasive vested interests. There is a sense in which Western Nations have ‘done this to themselves’. Of course, it is true that once non-White immigrants have become socially and politically integrated in British society, they have eagerly adopted the workings of the political and cultural machines to practise forms of identity politics that cement and enhance their privileged position relative to the native British, AND to ensure that channels of migration remain perpetually open to their co-ethnics.

Given the generous and welcoming spirit of the typical European, naive surprise at this calculating behaviour is perhaps forgivable. But the hand-wringing and moralising about ‘identity politics’ that we still hear from conservative and libertarian political mouthpieces is less forgivable, even more so when it styles itself as dangerous, ‘politically incorrect’ realism. A truly realist position would be to ask the following: why would the resident aliens NOT seek to increase their power and privilege, given the suicidal generosity of the British Establishment in inviting them in the first place? Patriotic Alternative and White-Papers hold the same attitude toward this issue: we do not want non-White immigrants to ‘assimilate’ and become good taxpayers who eschew ‘identity politics’ – we want them to leave Britain.

All of that being said, once the process of restoring British demographics is well underway, a policy of altering the British Constitution to make it legally impermissible for ethnically alien immigrants to hold office and influence decision making on National questions would be, symbolically, a healthy display of racial self-confidence, and a firm but polite notice to the rest of the world that the ethno-masochist insanity of the post-War order is over. Laws enshrining an ethno-political principle were once an international political commonplace: the Swedish constitution of 1809-1975 banned non-Swedes from holding office in the country., and similarly, the US constitution left political office open only to those individuals who were also granted the vote; this meant that for most of the country’s existence only White men were eligible to hold office. It is the recommendation of White Papers that a Patriotic Alternative government should incorporate their prescription for an ethnic political qualification within the provisions of the Nation-State law proposed in the first point of their platform (and discussed in the first article in this series).
