Eastern European migrants allegedly earning less than the legal minimum wage are delivering Conservative Party leaflets in a key marginal constituency.

Despite conducting a high-profile campaign calling for tough controls on immigration, the Tories are using a company employing low-paid foreigners to distribute campaign literature.

Staff delivering the leaflets in the prosperous Richmond Park constituency in south-west London claim they are earning 4 an hour - compared with the statutory minimum of 4.85.

Whoops. :lol:

I find Michael Howard's stance on immigration somewhat amusing, considering his parents were immigrants.

The single most bizarre experience of my trip to England was driving through Wales listening to a Gaelic radio station.

That's nothing. You should try their sitcoms.

For some reason that made me think of Orm and Cheep.

This shows that the Tories don't really have any sincere commitment to immigration reform. Any Briton who is serious about the issue should vote BNP.

Interesting article on the subject:

Michael Howard claims that "it's not racist to talk about immigration", but is his language sending us a different message? Richard Lea asks authors and poets for their readings of politicians' pronouncements on this key election issue
