IS TREVOR PHILLIPS RIGHT OVER WHITE BRITONS?
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.
