IT would be dif­fi­cult to dis­agree with the drive and ac­cu­racy of the com­ments made by Trevor Phillips, sup­ported by Chris Roy­croft-Davis (“Why we must all pay at­ten­tion to Trevor Phillips”, Oc­to­ber 30).

The be­trayal by Blair and Brown con­cern­ing mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ist and im­mi­grant is­sues will prove to be head and shoul­ders above all other mis­takes. The wounds in­flicted by th­ese poli­cies will harm our na­tion for decades to come and I thank God that I am at an age that will deny me the trau­mas that many of our de­scen­dants will face. Peter Con­nell,

Leigh, Lancs I KNOW Trevor Phillips means well, but the race equal­ity chief was in­cred­i­bly naive to raise the sub­ject of a white un­der­class strug­gling to find work (“ ‘White Bri­tons must get help to find jobs or risk surge in racism’ ”, Oc­to­ber 29).

Mr Phillips should know that sim­ply rais­ing this sub­ject would give am­mu­ni­tion to the very peo­ple he has de­voted his life to com­bat­ing. Se­condly, the ‘white un­der­class’ is largely un­em­ployed through choice, rather than los­ing out in the jobs mar­ket to im­mi­grant labour. They sim­ply pre­fer an easy life on ben­e­fits.
