Midwives: Yet Another Tory Election Pledge Ditched as Maternity Wards Overwhelmed by Immigrant Birth Rate

Midwives: Yet Another Tory Election Pledge Ditched as Immigration Invasion Overwhelms Maternity Wards

Yet another broken promise has been added to the growing list of abandoned Tory election pledges in the form of increased subsidies to the midwife profession, which has come under intense pressure due to the sustained immigrant invasion-driven rise in births.
In a speech to the annual conference of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) in Manchester, that organisation’s general secretary Cathy Warwick said that both the Conservative Party and the Lib Dems had “gone back on pre-election pledges to increase the number of midwives.”
According to Ms Warwick, Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg had both promised to create more midwifery posts.
However, it has transpired, Ms Warwick said, that discussions with Health Secretary Andrew Lansley have shown that the Government is "clearly not prepared" to fulfil that commitment, despite the service being close to "cracking point.
“I fear for the future of maternity services, that the quality of care will fall and that safety could be compromised. I fear that midwives who are toiling away doing their best will become even more disillusioned,” Ms Warwick said.
“Most of all I fear that women and their babies will be ill-served by maternity services. The government's lack of response about this seems at best bewildering, and at worst a clear refusal to do something about it.”
She said David Cameron and health secretary Andrew Lansley had gone back on a pledge made before the election to increase midwife numbers by 3,000.
Ms Warwick pointed out that in January this year, Mr Cameron said in public that ‘We are going to make our midwives' lives a lot easier. They are crucial to making a mum's experience of birth as good as it can possibly be, but today they are overworked and demoralised. So we will increase the number of midwives by 3,000.’
Since the coalition government came to power it has consistently refused to honour that pledge, Ms Warwick continued. “When the NHS business plan was published last week, it contained no mention of midwife numbers.
“I am very concerned that the needs of pregnant women are greater than ever before, the birthrate remains high yet we are still acutely short of midwives. The RCM is well aware of the pressures on public spending, but midwives are already doing more for less. It now looks like they will be asked to do even more with fewer resources and fewer staff.”
The intense pressure on the maternity wards is a direct result of the immigration invasion of Britain by the Third World, a policy which has, ironically, been actively encouraged and supported by all the Westminster parties.
An analysis of official figures conducted by BNP news revealed that at least 60 percent of all new babies in Britain in 2009 were born to non-indigenous recent arrival immigrant mothers or to second or third generation immigrant parents.
The shocking figures are based on a comparison between new Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures and existing data.
According to the latest ONS figures, released in July this year, 24.7 percent of children born in Britain last year have mothers who were born abroad. These figures have doubled since the late 1990s.
According to the ONS figures, around 10 percent of babies are “born to mothers from New Commonwealth countries,” in other words, the Third World, with Pakistan topping the list.
An August 2008 ONS population report stated that, on average, ‘foreign’ women have 2.5 children each, rising to 3.9 for those from Bangladesh and almost five for Pakistani women.
In London around half of babies have foreign-born mothers while in Newham and Brent, around three quarters of children have mothers who were born abroad.
As shocking as these figures are, they do not tell the whole story.
According to the ONS Population Review of 2004 and 2005: England and Wales, legal Third World immigrants made up 14.7 percent (7.5 million) of the population of England in 2004.
A 2005 ONS report said that in the previous year, 36 percent of all births in England and Wales were not “white British.”
This 2005 birth rate figure does not include births to second and third generation immigrant mothers. Once it is added in, the non-indigenous birth rate climbs to just over 50 percent of all births in Britain — and this in 2005, data which is already five years old.
This figure, combined with July’s ONS figures, means that at least 60 percent and possibly more of all live births in Britain last year were of immigrant origin
