Excellent take by Melanie Phillips here on the pathetic efforts by the Conservative AND Labour governments to obscure their staggering failure to secure our borders.
To grasp the true — and truly wicked — dimensions of this deception, we need to cast our minds back to the Labour administration under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. This set out to change the very identity of Britain — and to do so, furthermore, by stealth. In 2009 Andrew Neather, a former speech writer for Labour ministers, revealed that the real purpose of Labour’s immigration policy had been to transform Britain into a new kind of society altogether, where British attributes would have no greater status than any other culture. Labour imagined that, by creating such a multi-racial, multicultural society, it could eradicate prejudice from the human heart. It also just happened to be a way of gerrymandering the vote, by creating a great pool of Labour voters from immigrants who would overwhelmingly vote that way.
The demographic revolution is underway and cannot be stopped.
And now we can see that, whereas Labour concealed what it was doing to dupe its core vote, the Tories have concealed what they are not doing in order to dupe their core vote.
And duplicity is what this is all about in the final analysis as the political class to do all they can to pretend they can control who comes in and out of our country when in fact they haven’t a clue.
