End dis­crim­i­na­tion in favour of Euro­peans

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, I re­fer to the let­ter from Ken MacColl ( The Oban Times, May 25).

The Home Sec­re­tary has to de­port a large num­ber of non-Euro­peans be­cause we can­not have to­tally un­lim­ited im­mi­gra­tion, and EU law does not al­low us to de­port Euro­peans.

It is not dis­crim­i­na­tory to want to re­dress the im­bal­ance of present and past dis­crim­i­na­tion. As soon as we leave the EU in 2019, we must have new im­mi­gra­tion laws that pro­vide equal­ity be­tween Euro­peans and non-Euro­peans by end­ing the spe­cial priv­i­leges pro­vided to Euro­peans un­der EU laws. We must put and end to dis­crim­i­na­tion against non-Euro­peans.

There are some non-EU Euro­pean coun­tries that have free­dom of move­ment agree­ments with EU. We must not be one of them be­cause it amounts to dis­crim­i­na­tion against non-Euro­peans. I am very con­sis­tent in my views.

I am to­tally op­posed to dis­crim­i­na­tion of any kind.

SNP, Lib-Dems and Greens all sup­port the spe­cial priv­i­leged po­si­tion of Euro­peans. If there were a UKIP can­di­date in my area, I would vote for them but, since there is not, I am un­sure who to sup­port.

It is un­likely that I will sup­port Labour be­cause Jeremy Cor­byn has said he will in­tro­duce ad­di­tional UK-wide pub­lic hol­i­days on St An­drew’s Day, St David’s Day, St George’s Day and St Pa­trick’s Day. This is not ac­cept­able be­cause they are all Chris­tian Saints and we al­ready have an abun­dance of hol­i­days linked to Chris­tian­ity.

The four new hol­i­days should be on days that are con­nected to Is­lam, Ju­di­aism, Bud­dism and Hin­duism. When the time comes to add a fifth new hol­i­day, it should be linked to Sikhism.

It is un­likely that I will vote Con­ser­va­tive be­cause of the way they dis­crim­i­nate against dis­abled peo­ple by, for ex­am­ple, stop­ping un­em­ploy­ment ben­e­fits for se­verely dis­abled peo­ple on the grounds that they are not try­ing hard enough to find work. David Gal­lant, Oban.
