It's that man again!
There is no doubting the fact that, no matter how generous a view you may have of immigration,the expansion of the EU and the large number of East Europeans arriving here has resulted in some problems. The pressure on schools, housing and the NHS is real enough. But people move to other areas or countries to make a better life for themselves. Always have and always will. Frequently the incomers are resented by those already established and history shows how tension can so easily turn to tragedy especially in economic hard times. Against this background Ian Duncan Smith (Is he malevolent or just stupid? I can never make my mind up.) has made an intervention of such irresponsibility that it beggars belief. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "IDS - you couldn't fucking make him up".
