An edited-down version of the following letter was printed in today's Morley Observer and Advertiser. Obviously Andrew and Nick have been sworn in as MEPs now but they hadn't been when I wrote the letter.
People who were wondering what effect the recent election of two BNP Members of the European Parliament would have on British politics did not need to wait very long for an illuminating example of the state of panic that the traitors in Westminster are in.
The stunning admission by the government that its housing policy is anti-British and that British-born people will now get priority in the housing queue over immigrants and ‘asylum seekers’ is testament to what voting BNP can achieve. Our MEPs have not even been sworn in yet and already the effect of their election can be felt.
As a local councillor, housing is one of the main issues that people come to me for help with. Sometimes my intervention is successful and I manage to help to increase someone’s priority which results in them finding a home, yet even when such cases achieve a happy conclusion, the scale of Britain’s housing shortage that is revealed through dealing with such cases never fails to shock me. Nationwide, mass immigration has been the single biggest contributor to our country’s housing shortage, and now the Labour government has been forced to admit it.
I will continue my work at local level to support local people with regard to housing, for instance by dealing with individual housing cases and continuing to push for local lettings policies in this area that will give priority to local people and those with a local connection. I requested for such a policy to be put into operation in relation to the new social housing properties that are soon to be built on the Glen Estate, for example, and I am pleased to be able to report that this has been approved. Yet there is only so much that can be done at local authority level, which is why this announcement from the government is so important.
Whether the new policy is in fact initiated remains to be seen of course, but either way, the announcement has legitimised what the British National Party has said all along: namely, that local people should always be at the front of the housing queue. If announcements like this are what can be expected when just two BNP MEPs are elected, just imagine the situation when we start to see BNP MPs elected to Westminster!
