Leo McKinstry in the Express:
"The destruction of our borders through uncontrolled immigration, the vast expansion of the welfare state and the phenomenal growth in state bureaucracy have helped to create three huge blocs of client voters who will overwhelmingly back Labour out of naked self-interest. Only last week it was revealed that the Government last year approved more than 200,000 applications for British citizenship, by far the highest total on record. All reliable studies show that more than 80 per cent of migrants vote Labour. And in many constituencies throughout the socialist heartlands of Scotland, the Midlands and the North, the majority of the electorate is dependent on the state."
