Labour's hypocrisy over migrants: How the party is trying to woo voters with tactics that would shame the BNP


I had to put this on here.

All the so-called polls have been showing a Small Conservative Majority and ZaNu Labour are second.
Then what are zaNu Labour worried about ?
Wasn't the MSM telling us that the BNP are losing members ?

Is the real truth in these polls showing a massive rise for the BNP ?
Whatever it is..THEY'RE TERRIFIED.

ROLL ON GENERAL ELECTION.

"The carefully worded letters all send the same sympathetic messages to local 'white families' about the difficulties caused by the record rise in immigration.

Soothing words of comfort are combined with powerful pledges of action to ease the pressure on jobs, school places and council housing.

'There is a great deal of worry about the pressure on schools, doctors' surgeries and housing allocations,' reads one of them. 'I want you to help me keep the pressure up on the Government in relation to reforming and updating our immigration and citizenship rules and laws.'

Stirring stuff indeed. So which party do you think is promising to fight the Government on these policy failings? The Conservatives? UKIP, perhaps?

No, with astonishing hypocrisy, these pledges come from the Labour Party itself. For the authors are senior Labour MPs who fear losing their seats as a result of the political fall-out from the mass immigration policy that they gladly helped to implement.

Dozens of these letters from sitting Labour MPs have been passed to the Daily Mail - and the authors all have one thing in common. They are fighting for their political lives because of the threat posed by the odious, far-Right British National Party.

They include Ed Balls, the Schools Secretary and key ally of Gordon Brown, and Margaret Hodge, the Culture Minister who is fighting a seat in the East End of London.

Some of the leaflets sent out to constituents include dubious immigration questionnaires and promises that local people will be put first in the jobs queue.

Labour's hypocrisy has come to light only days after the scale of Labour's deliberate plan to create a multicultural Britain through mass immigration was revealed.

A draft Cabinet Office report, uncovered by a Freedom of Information request, showed how, in 2000, Labour ministers deliberately plotted to open the floodgates to new migrants to achieve the party's 'social objectives'. Traditionally, new immigrants vote for Left-wing parties.

The document also revealed how those who dared to question this policy would be branded 'racists'.

Today, however, on the cusp of a General Election, many Labour MPs have realised that their secret plan has backfired spectacularly. As a result of mass immigration, many of their core white working-class voters complain that they feel like second-class citizens in their own communities, and believe that immigrants are given unfair precedence for jobs and public services.

As a result, Labour MPs in marginal seats or with a BNP threat are desperately scrambling to play the race card in a shameless attempt to be seen as acting tough on immigration after all.

One of the MPs at the heart of the new get-tough policy on immigration in constituency backyards is Mr Balls, who is the Prime Minister's closest political friend.

Mr Balls has been at the centre of Cabinet decision-making over the past decade and will have been only too well aware of Labour's encouragement of a multicultural Britain.

Mr Balls, a front-runner to succeed Mr Brown as Labour leader, has held two public meetings and produced direct mail and questionnaires on the immigration issue in his newly-created Morley and Outwood constituency.

Significantly, the Schools Secretary's Yorkshire constituency is a fertile breeding ground for the BNP, which already has one BNP councillor and hundreds of members registered locally.

In his recent constituency newsletter, Mr Balls wrote: 'I want to have a conversation with you about immigration. What we really need is proper discussion about the difficulties and benefits that immigration can bring to our country.'

He admitted that there were 'concerns about jobs in our area', and asked: 'Do you support updating our immigration laws so that: migrants who want to settle here must speak English? A probationary period should be passed before they are able to claim state benefits?'

It is a similar story in Barking - the East London constituency where BNP leader Nick Griffin is fighting the Culture Minister Margaret Hodge.

With one of the highest rates of immigration in Britain, Barking has seen a massive social upheaval as a result of Labour's policy, with many local families struggling to come to terms with the sheer number of new arrivals from abroad.

Yet in a two-page letter to constituents, Mrs Hodge paints herself as being tough on immigration, saying that it can be 'very unsettling' for 'predominantly white' and 'traditional East End families'.

She adds: 'I respect your concerns about the pace of change. It is wrong for others to dismiss these out of hand and rest assured that you do have my support on this.'

Earlier this month, Mrs Hodge even suggested that migrants should be forced to 'earn' the right to benefits and council housing over several years. She warned that British values of tolerance were under threat because of an increasing sense of 'unfairness' over immigration.

"Labour Minister talks about the very real threat of Islam."

But have we (or more precisely have our political masters) left it too late.

Seems the Tories are infiltrated also

News has just reached me from Brighton, where the Conservatives are currently gathered, that David Cameron has referred to Nick as a "ghastly piece of filth". I couldn't believe this at first but I have found this extract from his speech just published on the Conservative website:

It was you who selected those candidates, so if we win that general election, instead of 18 women MPs on the Conservative side, there will be more than 60. And you've done something else, you have selected black and minority ethnic candidates, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, right across our country. Not in Labour seats, not in marginal seats, but in safe Conservative seats. And to people who say to me that this modernisation, that this change was just some sort of paint job, I would say this: think of the young black British boy, looking at Parliament, looking at Britain and thinking, "What's my role? Do I belong? How am I going to get on?" He can look at the Tory party, yes, the Tory party, and he can see Kwasi Kwarteng, Sam Gyimah, Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, Shaun Bailey, Helen Grant and say, "They've got to the top of British politics, I belong here, and so can I".

And think about that young Muslim woman, living in Britain, wondering what her role is in modern Britain, who is able to switch on the television and watch, in primetime TV, on Question Time, as Sayeeda Warsi destroyed that ghastly piece of filth, Nick Griffin, and think yes, yes, I belong here, it's my country too.

That's what we've done as a party, we can now look the British people in the eye and say: this country, our country, this tolerant, compassionate, brilliant, multi-racial country, we are with you, we are like you, we are for you, we are ready to serve you, this modern Conservative Party made its choice and it's never going back.

Obviously Dave was having a bad media day, but when people become emotional the mask starts to slip. Forget all that flag-waving and tough talk about British identity and immigration, this is the real Cameron, happy to reside in and perpetuate a "brilliant, multiracial society". The thing is, people like Cameron don't have to live in the society they create ; a Britain minus the British people themselves.

Brown and Cameron, both as bad as each other, Traitors one and all.

They're about 10 years too late Chris.
Typical shortsightedness from the powers that be.

Dear Silly Kuffar,

You said:
"They're about 10 years too late Chris. Typical shortsightedness from the powers that be."

I say:
I'm not sure they actually care. Winning votes, arranging votes (by issuing/selling passports to foreigners etc) or faking postal votes to gain, or retain power, seems to be their only goal. And I think that applies to all three of the big parties Lab/Con/LibDem.

The Lib/Lab/Con may have left it too late to stop the forthcoming Civil War.
We still have time to turn the tide and take our Country back, with Military force from our armed services if neccesary.

Every PASSPORT, NI NUMBER, VISA etc that has been issued to Non-Ethnic Immigrants in the last 15 yrs should be rescinded and the Immigrants/Asylum seekers removed, by FORCE if necessary.
