Hundreds of Thousands of ‘Asylum Seekers’ Remain Permanently in Britain Due to the Labour/Tory PartyApril 23, 2010 - By merciaoriginal post at http://bnp.org.uk/
The Tories would have the gullible believe that they have clean hands where immigration is concerned and that the present crisis is largely due to Labour’s lack of control, yet it was former Tory leader Michael Howard who, when home secretary, rewarded thousands of ‘asylum seekers’ with residential status.
Howard, whose family originates from Eastern Europe, quietly increased the number of ‘asylum seekers’ granted exceptional leave to remain — from 2,000 in 1991, to 14,000 in 1993.
Later, in 1996, he once again demonstrated Tory duplicity by giving permission for thousands of overseas students and marriage applicants to remain in Britain.
Boris Johnson, the Tory mayor of London, is alleged to want a change in the current residence rule so as to confer a right of residence to all ‘asylum seekers’ who can establish that they have been in the country for at least five years.
Furthermore, it was the Tories who amended immigration and asylum legislation to give failed ‘asylum seekers’ the legal right to remain in Britain pending appeal against removal — legislation at the very root of the asylum-seeker scandal.
As for Labour, it is public knowledge that they have, since being elected to office in 1997, deliberately facilitated mass immigration in a cynical bid to import Labour voters, a covert policy that defecates on the sacrifice of all those Britons who gave their lives in the last war to defend us from foreign invasion and colonisation.
Yet it was ‘former’ Communist Jack Straw, the son of an Eastern European immigrant, who whilst insisting that there was no question of an amnesty, gave the green light for some 30,000 failed ‘asylum seekers’ to be allowed to stay in Britain.
This was every bit as bad a day for this country as it clearly was a good one for Labour’s crumbling electoral base.
Not to be outdone, Labour home secretary and former leader of “Looney Left” Sheffield Council, David Blunkett, is on record as giving permission for 15,000 ‘asylum seeker’ families to remain in 2003.
Since then experts estimate that the Labour regime has given residential status to around 160,000 illegal migrants, many of whom can reasonably be considered as natural Labour “welfare-state” Party supporters.
The British National Party says that our nation’s asylum policy should be in line with international law. This means that people have the right to seek asylum in the first neighbouring safe country to the one they are fleeing.
People who have crossed 20 safe countries to reach Britain are acting in contravention of asylum rules. The BNP argues that there are, therefore, no legal asylum seekers in Britain.
