The ethnic minority vote will play a key role for all major political parties in the snap general election on June 8, according to a new research.
Operation Black Vote (OBV), a leading advocacy group for wider representation of the black and minority ethnic (BME) communities in British politics, found in its Power of the Black Vote in 2017 analysis that the ruling Conservatives, Opposition Labour and the Liberal Democrats need the BME vote to win in their target seats.
The BME electorate is significantly larger than the majority in seven of those 10 seats and the Indian population is larger than 15 per cent in 15 seats, including eight marginal seats, the report concludes.
It found that the top 10 most marginal seats, or constituencies with a very slim majority for the sitting MP leaving it up for grabs for all parties, have a BME electorate larger than the majority of the MP who was elected there in the 2015 general election.
“We found that the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats need the BME vote in 2017 to win their targets. Even considering current polling showing Theresa Mays party ahead, failure to take a major slice of the BME vote could mean her Commons majority is much lower than predicted,” OBV said.
“For Labour, holding onto the BME vote in 2017 is crucial… 34 marginal Labour seats rely very heavily on keeping the same BME vote as last time,” the group adds.
The report concludes that the Labour party could seriously reduce the Conservatives majority by holding onto their share of BME voters and the Tories could seal a comprehensive victory by winning over more BME citizens.
According to the analysis, which way the BME vote goes will have a big impact on the final tally as almost half (96) of the top 200 most marginal seats have BME populations large enough to help determine the results in those constituencies.
“There are six seats where the Asian population is over 50 per cent of the constituency, Leicester East, Ilford South, Bradford West, East Ham, Brent North and Ealing Southall… Harrow West and Harrow East (in London) are both marginals with very large Asian populations (42 per cent and 45 per cent respectively). One is Labour, the other is Conservative,” the report notes.
“Other seats where there is an Asian population large enough to have a significant impact include Brentford & Isleworth, and Hendon, both in the capital, and Dewsbury in Yorkshire.”
Simon Woolley, director of Operation Black Vote, said: “Britain is at a crossroads on Brexit, immigration, and British identity. How these issues play out in this snap election will determine the country’s direction for a generation.”
“The key question is to what extent will black and minority ethnic communities be involved in this debate?”
The OBV analysis came as the group joined other race equality bodies in Britain to launch a “Manifesto for Race Equality in Britain” this week.
The manifesto, which has been launched by a coalition of around 20 race equality campaign groups, includes policy proposals to tackle racial inequalities in the jobs market, housing, and criminal justice.
Omar Khan, Director of the Runnymede Trust, said: “Given the persistence and extent of racial inequalities we need the next government to have an actual plan to reduce racial inequalities, not just warm words.
“With post-Brexit Britain raising existential questions about who we are, we also need the next government to affirm that race equality is a core British value and that minorities wont see their rights and protections weakened.”
Yet again here is another example of just how influential the non-white vote now is in elections not just in Britain but across the Western world. The sheer scale of non-white immigration and the birthrate that comes with it, has produced a voting bloc that can now determine the outcome of elections in our nations.
Like we have repeatedly said, when we as the native peoples of Europe in our own nations lose the right to self-determination through being outnumbered then the game is over. Never are the non-white population going to vote in our interests as whites, they will always vote in their own interests and for whoever advocates and perpetuates the enforcement of multiculturalism.
We don’t even have to be outnumbered nationally, if a certain constituency has a non-white majority that votes a certain way, then that alone can mean the difference in the eventual outcome of the result. This is the logical outcome of mass population replacement immigration, they eventually come to be the deciding factor in elections and all of the political party’s court their vote because of that very reason.
This non-white vote which always votes in their interests as non-whites, has become so important to corrupt and treacherous politicians because without them, they stand no chance of election.
How did we ever allow our country to get into a situation whereby the native people of the country lost the right to self-determination at the ballot box? There is only really one answer. Mass apathy and a total denial of the reality of the situation. Unheeded warnings and a false sense of pathological altruism.
The very fact that there is an ‘operation black vote’ just goes to show how race and immigration plays a major role in politics in the 21st Century. Could you imagine an operation white vote that mobilised whites to vote in their interests as whites? It would be opposed with the full force of the law, yet it is perfectly fine it seems to mobilise the non-white vote to vote a certain way.
This is what is known as demographic dispossession through mass immigration which manifests itself in a whole host of different ways, politics being just one way.Help us to continue running this website and enable us to spend more time researching and writing by making a donation. Thanks.
