Hate Van Tactics Moved North
Good to see that Nicola Sturgeon has condemned the disgraceful pilot scheme running in Glasgow.
This from Yes: Yes Scotland advisory board member, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, writes in today’s Herald highlighting the problems with the current “Go Home” campaign being carried out by the UK Border Agency.
Tasmina, who was born in Chelsea to an English mother and Indian-born father, says the Westminster government’s behaviour is negative, foolish and adds that the UKBA campaign seems designed to enflame racial tensions.
The latest campaign seems to be designed to inflame racial tensions and label every immigrant as either an illegal or, at best, a benefit-scrounging extended family living off the grace and favour of the British taxpayer.
She also discusses:
The case of Jilda Clark, whom the UKBA kept from her family for not speaking “survival” English, despite Mrs Clark being a teacher of English as a second language and holding a BA and MA in the subject.
The fact that Glasgow has quietly become stage 2 of the “Go Home” campaign, with no consultation of the Scottish Government.
How Scotland can have a better immigration policy after independence, whereas in the UK it is a reserved matter for Westminster.
