The Battle For Barking Hots Up...

As noted by Laban Tall and Edwin Greenwood, the Berk of Barking is (briefly) back in his home town to extol the virtues and benefits of multiculturalism and cheap labour.

Before fleeing back to the lily-white haven of decidedly non-multicultural Dorset, of course. Multicultual Barking is wonderful, you see, but you wouldn't want to live there, would you?

Cahal Milmo, in the 'Indy' reports from the front line and guess whose fault it all is?
The lack of social housing is a major problem locally and a key electoral issue. Margaret Thatcher's right-to-buy policy cut the housing stock in an area which includes the vast Becontree estate, the world's largest public housing project. Successive Labour governments have stymied the development of new homes, leaving a council waiting list of 11,695.
Ah, perfect...
Nearby lies the council ward of Goresbrook, the epicentre of BNP support in Barking and Dagenham. Its streets are lined with terraced houses, many displaying the signs of right-to-buy ownership such as conservatories and extensions.
The traitorous scum. How dare they purchase their homes and improve them!

Don't they realise that the great and the good can't possibly advance their goals if people insist on having something worth fighting for, and reject the idea of living in a crowded, heavily oversubscribed slum..?

And for a real idea of just how the progressives and their fellow travellers view the people they supposedly want to win away from BNP votes, check out yesterday's Tweet from pudgy lefty Johann Hari:


That's the way to win votes, Johann...for the other side.

Update: Well done, Labour. Via Al Jahom, it looks like you've handed them something to shout about on their Barking rally today. You utter, utter cretins...

It's like they don't even care anymore, or simply have given up pretending. They never seem to learn from their mistakes.

How, I wonder. Did everyone who bought their house then demolish it?

@QM,

They do learn from their mistakes, they can repeat them exactly.

Do you remember a comment on the sadly quiet Fulham Reactionary.

"Billy Bragg, the Bard of Barking said...

"As I have said many times before, it's clear that we are experiencing levels of immigration unprecedented in our history. The make-up of this country is being changed before our eyes."

Racist, reactionary, crypto-nazi rubbish. "Britain" is a nation of immigrants and always has been. We'd collapse as a "nation" if it weren't for immigrants doing jobs that "natives" won't do -- like suicide bombing, gang rape, mob stabbing, electoral fraud, consanguineous marriage, infecting people with drug-resistant TB, etc, etc. Race doesn't exist, everyone's the same under the skin and you wouldn't believe how hard it is for me to live in hideously white Dorset rather than some vibrant, ethnically enriched area of London. But, unlike some on the left, I live my principles and I've always believed that socialism's about personal sacrifice."

How fortunate that another Labour policy, that of mass immigration has absolutely no bearing, none at all, on this issue.

I'm pretty sure some of them don't.

But not enough, by a long chalk...

"How, I wonder. Did everyone who bought their house then demolish it?"

Worse. They improved it...

"...the sadly quiet Fulham Reactionary."

Another good blog, sadly missed..

"How fortunate that another Labour policy, that of mass immigration has absolutely no bearing, none at all, on this issue."

Indeed.

Poor, poor Lady Thatcher, has there ever been a more maligned figure in British politics? It's such poor journalism, she left office more than 20 years ago.

The Labour Party has had three terms to increase housing stock, it just was not in its interests to do so. Fewer houses means higher property prices overall. All those nose-in-the-trough Labour MPs, who flipped their second homes courtesy of the tax-payer. Is it me, or are those of socialist persuasion more inclined to be greedy buggers?
