Independent MEP Janice Atkinson has become the latest high-profile public figure to speak out about “The Great Replacement” which argues that native Brits and Europeans are being systematically replaced through mass, uncontrolled immigration.

Writing in the Voice of Europe following an exclusive by Shy Society over an English Heritage training programme excluding white people, the South East England MEP says that when she first read about the theory she thought it was an “over reaction”. But the former UKIP politician has recently changed her mind and is now “absolutely convinced” that The Great Replacement is a concerted effort by globalist elites to replace the indigenous population; using uncontrolled, mass immigration from largely Muslim-majority countries in order to exploit low birth rates across the continent.

“When I first read about the Great Replacement I thought it was a little over reaction but now I am absolutely convinced that this is now the plan from the EU, the former Obama administration, the UN, some liberal left UK politicians and even some so-called conservatives,” Janice wrote on the pan-European media platform.

She joins a growing list of high-profile figures to break ranks and endorse the controversial viewpoint. It was first coined by French author Renaud Camus in 2010 but is often dismissed and ridiculed as a ‘conspiracy theory’ in the British mainstream media. However former French journalist and current mayor of Beziers, Robert Menard, has backed the notion and ex-Mail Online columnist and Rebel Media correspondent Katie Hopkins also recently said she agreed, adding “it isn’t a myth – it’s happening right now, systematically”.
