    Thoughts? Has Labour lost the White British voters, are Labour now dependent on immigrants and ethnic minorities voting, why have White Brits abandoned Labour

    This is about London btw which only 45% are white British, is it any wonder really? a lot of London now is inadvertently racially segregated and Blair's multi cultural hellhole caused this.

    After what Labour did during their time in power, I'm not surprised.

    White Brits voting for Labour is like Jewish people voting for the Nazis.

    Interestingly, the Canadian Conservatives (who are well to the right of the British Tories) are currently in power largely due to their strong support among the ethnic minorities.

    OP, the article is about London, your thread title makes it sound as if it's about the UK generally.

    London is a highly divided city, both racially and along class lines, so it will all be down to where you draw the lines on the map - the outer suburban areas are overwhelmingly Tory, apart from a few LibDem areas, which will probably go Tory at the next election. Go a little further out and you have white working class people swinging one way and then the other in different elections. Inside the circular road, there is a non-British majority and they tend to vote Labour.
