Mr Neather wrote an article praising immigration because it provided lots of cheap nannies and gardeners for funky Londoners like him.
Apparently thinking nobody would notice, he then revealed that there had been ‘a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the UK Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural’.
He recalled coming away from high-level discussions ‘with a clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn’t its main purpose – to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date’. (…)
Mass immigration, so vast that Britain would have to adapt to the migrants rather than the other way round, would be very useful in attaining this.
You could smear your opposition as ‘racist’ if they dared to resist. And they would run away.
