The Diversity Illusion: What We Got Wrong About Immigration And How To Set It Right

Tonight, 27th February 6.30pm at 55 Tufton Street, London SW1P 3QL

RSVP to prwhittle@btinternet.com 

Opinion polls over the past decade have continued to register huge public disquiet over the levels of immigration into Britain. Yet the belief, firmly held amongst the political establishment, that diversity is unarguably a good thing has made sensible debate on immigration impossible.

Concerned that the topic is being dominated by the Far Right, Ed West is writing here the first narrative intended to reflect the legitimate concerns of the population at large.

He debunks the myth the Britain has been a diverse nation since the Romans. He shows that open door policies, born out of a desire to do the right thing after WWII, have had unintended consequences.

He argues that by dispelling this delusion, and deconstructing the multiculturalism industry that has grown up around it in the last decade, it will be possible to have an open debate on Britain's future.

October Event

What Counts as Right-wing Today?
A talk by the writer and broadcaster Richard D.North about his new ebook
The Right-wing Guide to Nearly Everything
On Wednesday October 24th at 6.30pm at 55 Tufton Street, London SW1P 3QL
The Right-wing Guide to Nearly Everything is an interactive, evolving, 650-entry A-Z tour of the world and ideas from a civilised, sceptical right-wing point of view.

"Witty, hard-hitting, accurate and immensely politically sound, there’s a wealth of wisdom in Richard D North’s right-wing dictionary. The first and most important battle in the culture wars is the one fought over the correct interpretation of contentious words; with this splendid book, North has fired a salvo against the Left that will resonate from one end of the battlefield to the other." - Andrew Roberts

"Some right-wingers are traditional, others progressive; some brainy, others instinctive; some do-gooders & some redneck; some nice, some nasty. Meet them all here and decide which sort you are, if any." Richard D North

Richard D North, 65, is a writer, broadcaster and commentator. He is media fellow of the Institute of Economic Affairs, the free market think tank, and fellow of the Social Affairs Unit, the home of conservative cultural thought. He edits The Right Sites family of challenging and creative websites. He contributes to the SAU’s online review on the arts, culture and politics. His recent books include Mr Cameron’s Makeover Politics: Why old Tory stories matter to us all (SAU, 2009); “Scrap the BBC!”: Ten years to set broadcasting free (SAU, 2007); Mr Blair’s Messiah Politics: Ten years of inspirational government, 1997-2007 (SAU, 2007); Rich Is Beautiful: A very personal defence of Mass Affluence (SAU, 2005) and pamphlets on liberty, risk, the House of Lords, stag hunting and more.

A QUESTION OF ATTITUDE

The BBC and bias beyond news

by Dennis Sewell

Tuesday 12th June 2012 at 12 midday

at 55 Tufton Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3QL

RSVP to prwhittle@btinternet.com

Most discussion of perceived or alleged bias in BBC programmes concerns the Corporation’s news output. It tends to centre on issues of balance (or lack thereof) in party politics, international affairs, or over contentious issues such as Britain’s relationship with the European Union.

This important new report examines the effects of a quite different sort of bias: a ‘cultural bias’ of a left-liberal flavour, which many perceive to be evident in the BBC’s factual, drama and other entertainment programmes.

In particular, it seeks to establish whether the BBC’s many critics on the centre-right of politics have good grounds for their concerns about the Corporation’s record of impartiality beyond news and current affairs.

Dennis Sewell is an author, broadcaster and contributing editor of the Spectator. He spent more than twenty years on the staff of BBC News where he presented Radio 4's Talking Politics, BBC World Service's Politics UK, worked as a reporter for BBC 2's Newsnight and was an award-winning documentary maker. His latest book is The Political Gene (Picador 2010).

‘If you want to find the most solid evidence of partiality, look at the BBC's entertainment output - its drama, comedies and arts programmes. This is where its guard is down, where the BBC editorial police are not watching out for 'balance' weak points. And it's also where, arguably, the partiality is far more subversive.' Tom Leonard, Daily Telegraph
