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”.
