...says Hazel Blears, vying with Phil Woolas for the title of 'most pandering to cunts' minister in the Brown government:
A lack of "open and honest discussion" about the impact of immigration among politicians locally and nationally had created fertile ground for rumours spread by far-right groups about preferential treatment being given to ethnic minorities.
Blears warned that white people's concerns about the effects of immigration should not simply be branded "racist", as this would simply alienate them even more.
Yet Blears herself says these are people who aren't actually adversely affected by immigration yet complain about it, and who have been given council houses yet wrongly complain that foreigners get them first. What the fuck is that apart from racism?
Are we seeing a new political correctness, where you can't call a racist a racist? In which case might I suggest it truly has gone mad.
Anyway, read that story for the Guardian's take. The Mail/Express will spin it out of control with "At last, what we all knew, and now the government admits it - darkies get council houses first! How about that ZaNuLab?" comments spiralling away underneath. Ah, the joy of it.
