We’re heading for an immigration disaster, warns former race tsar: Trevor Phillips says Britain risks wave of unrest unless concerns are addressed

Britain risks ‘sleepwalking into catastrophe’ and a wave of racial unrest unless it addresses concerns over immigration, the former head of the equalities watchdog has warned.

In a devastating analysis, Trevor Phillips insisted the failure to allay fears about the rapidly changing face of the UK is fuelling growing community tensions.

He called anti-immigrant sentiment a ‘smouldering’ tinderbox that could ignite at any time, stoked by people who had felt unable to speak out for fear of being branded ‘white racists’.

The former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission accused senior figures of a ‘deafening silence’ when confronted with issues linked to race, ethnicity and culture.

Mr Phillips, 62, said the ‘dangerously misguided’ liberal elite were unwilling to acknowledge that some communities resist integration and a minority are ‘actively opposed’ to British values and behaviour.

  • No no no you’re heading for the repercussions of an immigration disaster and without a complete purge Britain is doomed.

    Is so much racism over there that people decided to elect a Muslim as mayor.

    • You mean so much Muslims and fellow travelers in Londonistan.

        Now you invite the London mayor and the Calgary mayor to join the team over here 🙂
