Description

Document marked “THE BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATIONS RACIAL MIX A.D. 2000” with two flags in the upper right corner surrounded by red banner labelled “ENGLISH SOLIDARITY AGAINST MULTIRACISM,” dated 1989.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Birdwood rails against the BBC efforts to increase the number of ethnic minorities on its staff; and the “evil nonsense” of Jewish “one-worldism,” or in her view, “the enforced togetherness of the races.” A rabid anti-Semite, Birdwood even advocated for revisiting the seven-hundred-year old Edict of Expulsion against British Jews.
