Derb visits the home country, anecdotally observes the demographics of a few locales, and finds “There’s Still an England – And It Could Yet Be Saved”:
With a firm change of policy soon, England might yet be saved as a national home for the English, rather than merely a place for trading financial instruments.
And “soon” could be just six months away: In May 2014 there are Europe-wide elections for the European Parliament. It is widely expected that Euroskeptic, immigration-patriot, and nationalist parties will scare the pants off those currently in power.
I’ve long been an Anglophile, and my visit to the U.K. a few years ago was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, yet the demographic trajectories of the country are quite depressing.
Let’s hope the Derb is right.
