Letter To The Editor

A recent letter elsewhere:

Dear Sir,

While immigration will always be a political issue with regards to which debate, discussion and consideration are reasonable, it is a subject that must always be approached with care. The Conservatives' current election campaign has fundamentally failed to do this and seems to delight in rhetoric that easily encourages racism and xenophobia. If the Conservative Party were serious about producing a system in which there was public confidence, rather than merely pandering to the worst attitudes, there would be no association with fear-mongering, but, on the contrary, attempts to diffuse tensions and misperceptions of immigrants and asylum seekers.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Hanretty (St. Anne's)
Richard Huzzey (St. Anne's)
