The Daily Express splashes today on a story which almost beggars belief:
"Labour dismissed the British public’s widespread opposition to mass immigration as “racism”, a Government document revealed yesterday. Officials made it clear that public opinion was strongly against relaxing border controls.
"But ministers were urged to ignore voters’ “racist” views and press ahead with a secret policy to encourage migrants to flood into Britain. Whitehall experts even proposed a major propaganda campaign to soften up voters in preparation for the mass influx of newcomers. The details were laid bare in the original draft of a policy document released for the first time under the Freedom of Information Act."
"The Government has simply not been telling the truth about its policies on immigration. More and more evidence is now emerging to show that they deliberately planned a big jump in immigration for their own political purposes."
“Now they are trying to rewrite history to pretend those decisions never happened. Their conduct over all of this has been a complete disgrace.”
