According to a well-leaked party document, Labour party strategists are advising their activists to steer doorstep conversations away from immigration and on to healthcare and housing, in an attempt to win back UKIP waverers next May.
That's all right by me.
Lets start with healthcare and talk about the number of
immigrants using our local hospital and particularly the maternity
services. Why if you visit A&E, the majority of those awaiting treatment appear to be immigrants, probably there because all the local GP's lists are full.
Or perhaps they'd like discussion about housing and why we are having to
build so many new homes on greenfield sites to house the ever increasing
population brought about by immigration.
And perhaps if they've got some time to spare, we could
move onto schools and why English speaking pupils are being held back
due to the number of non-English speakers in the class.
Somehow, I don't think they would want to talk to me!
