UKIP leader Nigel Farage says the other political leaders do not believe in Britain, as reported in last Friday’s Metro.
Now I don’t know exactly what the MCC believe in (that’s Miliband, Cameron and Clegg) but I believe in Britain.
I believe in the Britain that abolished slavery and the slave trade.
I believe in a Britain that has a recent history of accepting refugees from other countries.
I believe in Britain, the country of whom it is said Chicken Tikka Masala is the national dish, following immigration from former colonies.
I believe in a Britain that had the highest employment the country has ever had before the recent worldwide recession. A lot of this was due to immigration from the Eastern EC.
I believe in a Britain that is welcoming to people from other countries and cultures, and whose culture has been enriched by this influx.
At every influx there have been problems. And Britain has had to work through these problems. This working through has been difficult, but it is a difficulty that has been worth it, leaving us with discrimination laws. We have to carry on with this struggle.
This is the Britain I believe in. The real Britain.
What Britain go you believe in, Nigel?
