Hard core Labour

The Spectator has picked up an interview in a local paper by Manish Sood, Labour candidate for North-West Norfolk who - it should be noted - is campaigning on a platform of 'taking Britain back to the 1970s.' 

Funny, with the IMF hovering in the wings that's what I thought the NuLabour government has effectively done. Still, the apparatchiks at Labour HQ are going to have a hard time labelling Manish as racist. No doubt they will say he was displaying 'false consciousness' when he declared:
Immigration has gone up which is creating friction within communities. The country is getting bigger and messier. The role of ministers has gone bureaucratic and the action of ministers has gone downhill – it is corrupt. The loss of social values is the basic problem and this is not what the Labour Party is about. I believe Gordon Brown has been the worst Prime Minister we have had in this country. It is a disgrace and he owes an apology to the people and the Queen.
I think the country has become much smaller, in every sense, but no argument with the rest.
