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...
