Tackling the Challenge of Immigration
Today, Gordon Brown, revealed the immigration policy of any Labour government going forward from the General Election but on Monday, the BBC's Newsnight programme, visited Margate and it seems that however hard government might try articulate its plans and policies, ordinary people still appear to hold strong views of their own on the subject.
Total Politics reports: "Most politicians approach the issue of immigration reluctantly. They would rather not discuss it at all. Has there been a more influential interruption into political debate than Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood tirade in 1968? It still lingers over any discussion of how many people we should allow to settle in the UK from beyond our borders."
You can watch the programme on the BBCiPlayer, here. The second episode is here.
Did anyone spot the aircraft banner I wonder?
