This review is from: The Islamic Republic of Dewsbury (Kindle Edition)
Being from a southern Liberal Democrat -thoroughly English- town, and growing up through the Labour party education system (1997-2006) and the BBC's 'education' system, I used to uphold the orthodox left-wing perspective so commonly held among young people my age. In fact, as an adolescent, I would go so far as to say that I had been lead to believe that minority cultures were constantly victimized, and that the white British community should do their best to respect these cultures. I also considered those who criticized these cultures to be unfair and 'racist'. It was not until I moved to Bradford and witnessed first hand the cultural divide that my opinions changed. I was completely taken aback by the utter division, lack of integration, and outright resentment between the two communities; something which is portrayed so well in this book. The local newspapers rarely report anything honestly here. After living for a year (as the only English-English person) on a street where, despite the heart-warming efforts of some neighbours, intimidation, threats and other minor crimes targeted at my person were a weekly occurrence, I decided it was best to move away to an area where people were more like me, despite still feeling an amount of residual liberal guilt for admitting it. This book excellently documents many similar experiences to which I have witnessed first hand. Before you dismiss it as racist propaganda, or inflammatory hate-speech, it is definitely worth reading to get an insight into the opinions of the unheard English community, who live on what is, essentially, a cultural front. It also details exactly what sort of things go on in places like these. You honestly have to live up here to believe it. Hopefully, if you read this book you will be able to prevent it from happening in your town or city.

A real 'Heads-up' for anybody vaguely concerned or interested in the increasingly obvious displacement of clearly English people in our towns and streets. A bit like watching the contents of a Petrie dish being consumed by some new virulent bacteria. I work alongside men of many ethnic backgrounds. West Indian, African, Somalian, Sudanese, Poles, Lithuanians. All good men. I can be as 'English' as I like amongst all of them. We all rub along. We're fine. The only time I ever see an Asian face is in the Newspapers. Day in day out. Whole parades of Asian faces. All thuggish looking, and all having been convicted of some heinous crime. Oh, and the occasional Asian running for some political position or other. So that's all the asians I come across., either criminals or politicians. Or in the case of the erstwhile Labour M.P. for Dewsbury: both. Get this book.
