A leading Anglican archbishop has warned uncontrolled immigration may lead to more violence on the country’s streets.

In a startling attack on the UK’s current immigration policy, Lord Carey said there was great concern among the British public about the number of people moving to the country.

He said mass immigration could change what it means to be British and warned resentment and violence could follow if the problem is not addressed.


Lord Carey, who was the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1999 to 2002, is part of a cross party group on immigration.

He said while many Britons saw the benefits that immigration brought to the country, British society was ‘changing before their eyes’ with 600,000 people arriving in the UK in the past year.

His cross party group is calling for a ‘one in and one out’ policy in a bid to reduce pressure on Britain’s public services.

‘With a turnover of a million people in one year, no wonder many people sense that the glue that binds our society together is weakening,’ he wrote in a newspaper article which was quoted in The Telegraph.

‘It takes time for people of different cultures to get accustomed to each others’ ways and, regrettably, not all newcomers are committed to integration.

‘Some are not even sure about the democratic values that are the very foundation of our society.
