Ah, so in this future Britain goes back to the attitudes held by (some of) 1980s Britain, complete with correspondingly dated slang.  Delightful.

Well, there is a good AnCap case that socialism breeds racism.

When jobs are scarce, after all, people rightly fear immigration. And the more "progressive" parties, which used to be the populist friends of the unions, discovered that tight limits on immigration were racist, and so they visibly opened up immigration to countries the immigrants from which were noticeable.

In the AnCap model, there are no curbs on immigration - but also no shortage of work. (Since "work" - the opportunity to translate labor into wealth - depends on capital and resources, whether that's plausible or not is another matter.)
