Well, and rather not surprisingly, the Tory party has decided to play the race card in the forthcoming elections. They are putting immigration at the top of the agenda. This is despite a 2/3’s drop in the number of asylum seekers coming to Brittan in the last year, a relatively low number compared with some countries of a similar size. At the same time they are of course doing nothing to dispel the myths with regard to such asylum seekers, they do not get more welfare than UK citizens, they get less. Many are there because they have suffered torture and had to flee their homeland, they need help and not abuse. But hey, never go wrong however when you pander to the prejudices in society, and in the UK there is a serious problem with racism which will only increase due to this campaign.
They (Tories) have said they would set a quota system; surely this can not happen, if a person arrives in Brittan and can show that they have fled persecution then they must be allowed to stay under international law. What they are trying to do is quite disgusting, and I hope that they get their answer from the electorate for the lies they are spreading. To quote Moe from the Simpson’s, “All the time they said it was the Bears I knew it was the immigrants”.

I was watching Adam Bouton's show on Sky on Sunday, and the head of the Commission for Racial Equality was stating his official position that the Tory debate on immigration control measures is not racist, and that he welcomed it, but that he would monitor it to ensure it didn't cross that line.

This is despite a 2/3’s drop in the number of asylum seekers coming to Brittan in the last year
on the other hand, for the first time ever (according to Sky News at least), the number of people entering the UK is greater than the number leaving the UK each year (since about 3 years ago), so while asylum seekers shouldn't be a pressing issue, legal and illegal immigration is, regardless of the skin colour of the immigrant.

Nonsense! :lol:
Anyone with their head above ground can see thaqt the Conservatives are putting Taxation at the top of the agenda.
Even their MRSA/hospitals policy is being plugged more than immigration.

What lies ?!
Show me one line of their policy on immigration thats a lie!

Or better still, direct your ire at real racists and scare-mongerers, like the pathetic Catalpa, for instance

So anyone who believes there should be a limit to immigration is a racist?? That's news to me.
Dude, there is not a single party in Britain which advocates unlimited immigration. Only libertarians do that. :wink:

Jesus, even when Anne Widdecombe isn't being a monster, the Tories doctor the evidence to make her look like one.

Poor Ann. Poor, poor Ann. She just can't win.

The problem of race in England is a very ligitimate one. It should not be scorned upon that the conservatives are finally soing something about it. Just because they suddenly decide to tackle the problem when it is still targetable, they are now regarded as racist. Remember the Conservatives have had far more unortohodox leaders (non wasps) in the past, than Labour.

From Mr. Howard
Howard's way to a better Britain
www.conservatives.com


Michael Howard has launched the Conservative pitch for power with a promise to "battle for Britain" and make the country a better place in which to live.

With 24 days to go to the election, the Party Leader unveiled a manifesto programme designed to replace Labour's wasted years of squandered opportunity, talk, and broken promises with a new era of action to improve public services, reduce the burden of taxes, and provide better value for money - with politicians held properly accountable to the public.

And presenting himself as a battle-hardened, experienced politician with a wide ranging record of achievement, he pledged to lead a new government which would reject Labour's PR style of running the country, and focus instead on the key issues that matter to most: the economy, schools, hospitals, crime, and immigration.

He presented the party's 28-page action programme: including measures to extend choice, devolve power to communities, balance the justice system in favour of victims of crime, end the immigration and asylum shambles, establish a low tax economy, reduce red tape, restore standards and discipline to education, boost investment in local hospitals, and stand fast against the euro and the EU constitution.

Addressing a media conference at Party headquarters - before flying off for the start of a three week nationwide campaign tour - Mr Howard left no doubt of his determination to deliver change to Britain.

He declared: "I'm 63 years old. I've fought many battles in my life. I battled the union bullies that once crippled our economy. I battled the judges and the legal establishment that said crime couldn't be confronted and beaten. I battled to get where I am from a state school in a small town in South Wales. So if you think I'm not determined to change our country for the better, think again."

Pointing out that he easily have decided to hang up his boots, enjoy retirement, and spend more time with his grandchildren, he said: "I'm not going to do that. Because there's another battle I have to fight. I love my country and I know it can be a much, much better place to live than it is today. So I'm going in to battle for Britain."

He contrasted Tony Blair's eight years of talk, with the Conservative action programme to satisfy the simple longings of the British people - clean hospitals, more police on the streets, disciplined schools, controlled immigration, and value for money and lower taxes.

And he stressed that instead of Labour spin and lies, Conservative ministers will be held accountable…. as "ministers who tell the truth, do what they say, and admit their mistakes. Who suffer the consequences if they do something wrong."

He insisted that the nation no longer had to settle for second best, and that by voting Conservative electors had the opportunity to change Britain into a better place in which to live. "On May 5 you can bring an end to the years of let-down, and start sorting out the things that matter. You can let the sunshine of hope break through the clouds of disappointment we all feel," Mr Howard said.

Dismissing a vote for Labour as a reward for eight years of broken promises and for five more years of talk, and warning that support for the Liberal Democrats was simply a message for higher taxes, increased immigration, and softer sentences for murderers and rapists, he told the electorate:

"You don't have to settle for that. Use your vote to tell Mr Blair that it's just not good enough. Use your vote to take a stand. It's time for change. It's time for action."

None of my business whether they win or not. They are extra-territorial so irrelevant to me.

Would that amount to de facto recognition that it borders on racism, and possibly is being restrained as it is solely to prevent acquiring the label?

Eminate? Eliminate? Emulate?

Why don't you give it a go Harpey. I'd vote for you. For the laugh, like.
'Emulate'! Thank you! All I could come up with was 'imitate', and I knew that wasn't quite right.

The easy answer here is just angry with your accuser but that goes nowhere.

If you are accusing me of being Racist then I presume I must consider myself a member of a Superior Race?

So when and where I have I said White people or indeed Irish people are superior to anyone else?

Look if you don't agree with me ...fine...that is your right.

But please don't make personal accusations which are false.

I don't do it to you so please don't do it to me. :roll:
