Less than a fortnight, El Gordo said in his Building
England’s Britain’s Future speech that he wanted English local authorities to favour “British” people when letting out council houses over immigrants. He has been told that this would be illegal.
When refinery workers went on strike a few months ago he declared that there would be “British jobs for British people”. He was, of course, told that this would be illegal and so he backed down.
When half of his cabinet were exposed as expenses fraudsters, he declared that there would be prosecutions and prison sentences for any MP that was caught fiddling expenses. He was told that this would cause problems, such as MPs getting into trouble for fiddling their expenses, and that it would probaly be illegal so he backed down.
Who comes up with this stuff? Does he just make up policy himself or is there someone in Downing Street deliberately telling him to say things he will later have to back down on? Co-incidentally, the Inequalities and Human Rights Commission have rushed out a report based on 2 year old figures from one of their left wing sockpuppet research quangos, IPPR, saying that immigrants don’t get any preferential treatment when it comes to housing. That was lucky,
their our glorious leader might have lost face otherwise.
