...in her own team's goal.
Margaret Hodge, the Monster for Culture, has decided that the best way to defeat the BNP is to steal all their policies. She now plans to steal their best known one - immigrants.
She wants immigrants to have to earn their benefits. Well, the Mail's readership is not fooled for a moment. Labour have a record of pre-election promises after all - Lisbon referendum, a smoking ban that left smokers some indoor venues, and so on. She is lying. She won't do a damn thing once the election is over. None of them will. Since a court ruled that we have no right to expect manifesto pledges to be honoured, I won't be wasting my time reading any party's manifesto. They have no basis in reality and are not in any way binding on the party who wins. Waste of paper. No politican's word can be trusted now, and their right to lie to us is supported by legal precedent.
Maggie's constituency has a high immigrant population and the BNP are set to do very well there. They came close to beating the Tories last time, it seems. She isn't going to win those BNP votes back now. Too many lies, too many broken promises and far too much spin.
Those immigrants were Labour's imported vote. They'd keep voting Labour to keep the benefits coming. Now Labour say they won't get those benefits under a Labour government. Mrs. Hodge, someone just made a blunder. I won't say who, but it's someone you know very well. Oh, and look, here's another one -
We need to have an honest conversation about what's going on in our working class communities. The very mention of immigration causes controversy and the whole debate is often seen through the prism of racism.
Yeees, and how did that come about? The dozy bint imagines we have all forgotten how any mention of the word 'immigration' in any context was immediately howled out by the 'Racist' cries. We have not forgotten, nor have we forgotten who did that. Even for a Labour monster, this woman is remarkable. She has managed to alienate everyone other than her Borg collective of socialist drones. If she keeps this up she'll push them away too. It's the political equivalent of standing on railway tracks and attempting to stop an express train with your head.
Immigrants won't vote BNP. There are a lot of votes up for grabs in Mrs. Hodge's constituency. Get canvassing, people. Remember, you don't even have to keep your promises any more. Labour have broken that rule for you too.
