Feeling like strangers in their home town

THREE years ago the BNP won 12 seats on our council.

If they had contested all 51 seats instead of merely 13, there can be little doubt that they would have secured control of the council.

That is their declared objective for next May.

But now they want also to make Barking the first constituency to have a BNP MP.

Already we have the dubious distinction of having a BNP member on the London Assembly.

Have the government and the council still not got the message?

Most Read

We must welcome all persons lawfully in the UK, but turf out those unlawfully here (estimated by the government at a million or more).

Everyone must be treated equally (no preference, as in this borough, for council job applicants from 'under-represented' groups as a result of trying to achieve a workforce in line with the ethnicity of residents).

We must stop issuing council literature in languages other than English. If a person wishes to settle in this country, but understands little or no English, the onus is on him to buckle down and learn the language instead of being pampered with literature in his native tongue.

And he must understand that we have one system of law applicable to everyone.

We must cease to make people feel like strangers in their own home town.

Otherwise the odious danger is that the BNP will achieve its objectives.
