UK bishop warns of race hate war if migrants continue to get jobsFebruary 28th, 2009 - 1:47 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.28 (ANI): The number of British jobs going to migrants is lighting the fuse for potential mass disturbances across the nation severely affected by the global meltdown, a bishop has warned.
The Right Reverend Nigel McCulloch, Bishop of Manchester, believes the far-right British National Party will take advantage of the current unrest to make political gain.
This disruption can lead to anger. We have got to be aware of community safety of one section of the community blaming another for our problems, the 67-year-old bishop was quoted, as saying.
There is a serious risk of disturbances. There have been rises in anti-Semitic attacks and it is likely the BNP will try to win support by blaming migrants, he added/
He also warned that the credit crunch could be used to scapegoat minorities.
The severity of the Bishops attack on the state of Britain has shocked his closest advisers.
We have got used to a buy now, pay later culture which has stretched people beyond their means, the bishop said, adding that he believed the long-term economic forecast is so bleak even the Church could soon have to axe staff and community projects. (ANI)
