New Labour Using Immigration To Forge

Recommended Posts

"At the same time, people see how the government has tacitly used immigration to help develop its preferences for a flexible North American-style labour market. In the service sector, construction and civil engineering, for example, immigration has been used as an informal reserve army of cheap labour. People see this at their workplace, feel it in their pocket and see it in their community - and therefore perceive it as a critical component of their own relative impoverishment.

"Objectively, the social wage of many of my constituents is in decline. House prices rise inexorably, and public service improvements fail to match local population expansion. At work, their conditions, in real terms, are in decline through the unregulated use of cheap migrant labour."

From A NuLabour Insider!

Jon Cruddas is the Labour MP for Dagenham and a former Downing Street adviser

In an e-mail exchange to be published in The Observer tomorrow, Mr Blair set out a range of proposals to strike at organised crime.

These included new police powers to seize cash and cars from suspected drug dealers...

Note the suspected - How the feck does that work then? "Hey Sarge, he looks a bit suspect - Lets seize his cash and cars" !

It's the Prime Minister doing one of his I know what people think and am going to sort it out acts.

I believe he also makes reference to some of his MPs not being in tune with people's mood. Again an attempt to paint himself as at one with the population.

What has happened on the "Respect" initiative by the way?

It could also be interpreted as an admission that the police and criminal justice systems are failing.

Another consequence of the UK's fundamentally undemocratic voting system...

The reduction of Labour's majority to 66 will ensure that about 40 super-marginal constituencies determine policy development and political organisation in the next four years. The politics of middle England will become even more dominant in the minds of our political leadership.

[...snip...]

Much of the community feels disenfranchised by New Labour, which has consciously removed class as a political or economic category. It has devised policies to appeal to specific swing voters in marginal constituencies -- witness the genealogy of the choice agenda in terms of public service reform.

Camping on the centre ground ensures New Labour hegemony. The cornerstone of New Labour has been the fundamental assumption that people in communities like Dagenham have nowhere else to go.

Note the date of the article: May 2005.
