So was Ray Honeyford Right?

Hazel "Nuts" Blears, Nulab Minister for Good News or Something has announced that, contrary to the wondrous delights hitherto proclaimed as true, immigration has caused strains on society so it must be right. It's been twenty-four years since Bradford Headmaster Ray Honeyford wrote something similar in the Salisbury Review but he wasn't speaking for New Labour and so was judged to be wrong, vilified as a racist and forced to resign. He didn't have the political protection accorded to Sir Trevor Phillips who spoke out recently against the disbenefits of multiculturalism.
Yes we do have freedom of speech in this country, but only if you are licenced to use it. And if you have that licence you can get away with anything so long as you say sorry*. It's ironic really that in a truly equal society Phillips would have been disemployed by the "Great and the Good" liberal intelligentsia** at the same age as Mr Honeyford.

*except that the heirs of Hitler and Stalin would never accept an apology from an ordinary person.
** ie those mainly upper class lefties who despise everything British and especially English.
