Immigration heads election battle

Immigration is the Tories strongest card (according to most polls) so it’s of no surprise that they keep banging the xenophobe drum. I would like to hope that Neo Labour won’t take the bait but given Blair’s panic over the issue I won’t waste my time.

“Tory leader Michael Howard will accuse Tony Blair of "pussyfooting" around immigration problems as the poll campaign resumes after a two-day pause. Mr Howard will say ignoring the issue only plays into the hands of bigots.

But Labour will hit back with help from a Conservative ex-minister, who calls the Tory plans "the most half-baked, incoherent package imaginable. The Lib Dems are launching their battle bus, with leader Charles Kennedy promising to fight a positive campaign.” Link
