Blair's migration speech:-
"We are putting in place a strategy - globally, nationally and locally - to ensure migration works for Britain today and in the future."
"The number of low-skilled workers that are allowed into the country from outside the EU remains small compared to other countries and is controlled by strict quotas - all of which we will now cut significantly following the expansion of the EU."
"No-one will be able to come to the UK from anywhere in the enlarged EU simply to claim benefits or housing. There will be no support for the economically inactive."
"When Spain joined the EU there were scare stories about economic migrants. Now, because of the way Spain has thrived in the EU, 300,000 UK citizens live there."
Just a few quotes from the classic speech on immigration that Blair gave in 2004 in the year of his re-election and the reason I gave up and left the UK. Not because I was racist, because I knew that I was going to be asked to pay for it.
If you want a real laugh, read the full text of his speech, :-
From 1 May, people from the ten accession countries will be able to travel freely and to take up self-employment opportunities in every member country of the EU - not just the UK. No country will be able to turn back residents of Poland or Lithuania or any other accession country at their border. In this we are no different from any of our European neighbours.
Socialism at it's best. And the way the present government is performing, Labour will get in again at the 2015 election.
