Another (yawn !) shit article in The Guardian attacking the BNP - and yet again the most informative part of the article are the comments ;

So 0ver 50 % of all council housing allocated so far in 2009 in Birmingham has gone to immigrants.
The author tells us. He kicks off by saying `most`, so under normal English usage that leaves a lot of scope for the rest. But there was an interesting CIF post today from a person called Chorus, for which thanks.
I worked in London Council Housing Department. We were inundated with calls from angry housing applicants complaining about "asylum seekers" jumping the queue. We generally viewed these people as racist and felt within our rights to end these conversations abruptly with a simple "Asylum Seekers aren't entitled to Council Housing." This was true, but it was disingenuous.....The reality was that statutorily vulnerable asylum seekers who had gained leave to remain in the UK often did automatically become entitled homeless applicants once their asylum application had been determined and the temporary housing support they were being provided by social services was withdrawn.
If you accept Chorus`s story, Mr. Fletcher looks exteremely close to being a liar.
Only last year Tower Hamlets council was considering a sons and daughters policy because Bangladeshi's wanted to live closer to their extended families. This policy was abandoned as racist years ago when Tower Hamlets was overwhemingly white.
This just about sums our politicians up, they have no qualms about breaking up white communities but go out their way not to do the same to other communities.
