Politics in a changing UK 08:06 - May 6 with 1126 viewsAnotherJohn

Just before he died, Henry Kissinger commented on the political impact of large-scale migration into Europe; he talked about the creation of new interest groups that would influence political parties and their policies. The results of the recent council elections, and how Gaza has featured so centrally in the campaigns in some areas, seem to bear that out.

Other recent news headlines say that the Labour Party is working to win back votes in Muslim communities. Some senior party sources say policy will need to change, even after the shift that already happened.. Personally I find that quite worrying. I seem to recall a discourse from years ago whereby people on the Left argued that changing demography would not greatly change existing culture and values, because integration would mean that migrants adopted the values had attracted them to the UK in the first place. Will foreign policy now be shaped increasingly by the reaction of certain "interest groups" to what is happening in far away places? Some will say that demography is destiny.

Politicians these days seem to bend with the wind on order to win votes rather than stand by their convictions, one reason why people are losing their faith in politicians in general.

The Labour Party and Islam have always struck me as unlikely bedfellows, they essentially have nothing in common. Islam in its very nature is socially conservative and authoritarian and as a culture it hasn’t got a very good reputation for fighting for the rights of gay people and transsexuals or anything the Labour Party calls for.

The only conviction you are likely to see in the House of Commons these days are fraud convictions, convictions for grabbing someone’s arse in a bar, or a conviction for crashing a car whilst drunk wearing high heels and a dress and running away from the scene.

Wearing high heels and a dress does seem to be on the rise. I came across an old calypso song the other day that seemed quite topical - wouldn't be allowed to be played now I suppose. Who remembers Lord Invader?

Don't worry, Lord Invader was more interested in the "Yankee dollar". They'll pay.

This is the song he wrote that was ripped off by a US producer who gave it to the Andrews sisters, leading Invader to spend years in the US suing to get some money back.

The re-election of the supposedly hated Sadiq Khan should tell you everything about how important the Muslim vote is in this country now.

Muslims stick together until they take power of a country, then the start fighting each other.

As they are only about 4% of the population, they had better get a move on

Really!!!
Over a quarter (25.3%, 2.2 million) of London's population identified with a religion other than "Christian", up from 22.6%, 1.8 million, in 2011. The next most common religious groups in London were "Muslim" (15.0%, up from 12.6% in 2011) and "Hindu" (5.1%, up from 5.0% in 2011).

60% of people couldn't be bothered to vote. He's clearly not hated by about 75% of Londoners in that case.

The Mail, Telegraph and GB news tell you he's hated becasue they hate him. For one reason.

Not hated by 60% and not loved by those who didn't vote for him.

The truth is he's a politician and as with the rest of the UK, a lot of people do not bother to vote.

Heck in Wales they can't get over half the electorate to vote either. A lot of people do not like politics or politicians.
About one sixth of registered voters chose Khan. About 1.3 million chose someone else. 60% of the voter stayed at home.

Muslims make up 15% of London's population, not 4% that you claim.

White British in the minority. Wouldn’t happen anywhere else. Regardless of colour or denomination.

Personally I left that all behind.

Absolutely, if he was really disliked huge numbers would have turned out to vote against him, whereas he actually won quite comfortably.

I’ve got no time for him (or most of his ilk for that matter) but if I lived in London and was breathing the polluted air from vehicles etc I’d probably be supportive of his initiatives to clean the place up.

And I was referring to Sadiq Khan being re-elected as Mayor of London, but of course you knew that.
