BNP given succour by Labour's failures

This quote from BBC Newsnight on the BNP in Stoke-on-Trent -

"Dave Gore is a 40-year-old tradesman. He has just been made redundant. He says there is work out there but immigrant workers have pushed wages so low, he refuses to do it. He has voted Labour all his life. Now he is getting ready to vote BNP for the first time. "Labour took us for granted," he says. "They've done nothing for us. Now I'm going to give the BNP a chance."

Give the BNP a chance! That's what New Labour has given us. Because of their poncy behaviour with the banks, sucking up to dodgy corporatists and generally paving the way for self-engrandisement (Blair's multi-million pound financial caravan is a good example!), we have been left with an underclass that is bitter and resentful, together with an artisan class that is fearful and demotivated.

Perhaps Gordon Brown might do the decent thing and hand the keys of No 10 back in the morning! Oh, and Darling's borrowing bonananza. It won't be an extra 7% on income tax at payback time. It will be Denis Healey's squeaking of the pips for all of us. OUCH!


It could also have something to do with the fact that Labour have deliberately encouraged unlimited migration of people willing to accept ridiculously low wages - ensuring the quality of life gained through years of negotiation between unions and business has been shattered.

That these people have absolutely no intention of permanent settlement, or integration into the host nation's culture and laws may also play a part.

And that these easily offended delicate individuals enthusiastically take offence at everything and nothing while, from the safety of their sacrosanct religious houses, they promulgate some of the most vile and hateful abuse even calling for the destruction of the very people who have been forced to host their new and improved lifestyles - may also have just a little bit of influence in the rise of the BNP.

Of course I could be wrong.

I don't think you are wrong. And one doesn't need to be anywhere near the far right in thinking to agree as much. Common sense should say that the government has been lamentable in addressing the legitimate concerns of people.
