    In Stewart Lee's DVD 41st best comedian he talks about when he was growing up as a kid (he's now 41) the tories put out leaflets through people's doors saying 'if you want a ni**er for a neighbour vote liberal or labour'. They now disguise their inherent racism using more inventive language.

    They are a bit racist, as it's integral in the culture of the tory party. :yep:
    That was in the past.

    I'm surprised Enoch Powell hasn't been mentioned yet. Or the fact he got support from some Trade Unionists. You're always going to get a few racialists infecting politics.

    It it was down to me I'd send them home to France, Germany, Scandanavia, Ireland....wherever everyone on this wee island is originally from.

    That was a long time ago, are you so stupid that you form your political views on a left-comic with a grudge against the Tories? Funny thing is the Tories have more ethnics in the shadow cabinet than Labour does in the Cabinet.
    Let's not start talking about stupid. I think we can both agree Stewart Lee makes us both look pretty stupid!

    I'm saying that many do have racist views, which is a part of the tory party.

    I think it would be silly to read too much into the fact that the tories have more ethnic people. It could just be a show, often known as window dressing, don't make the mistake of looking past that possibility.

    :ditto: Quoting a Stewart Lee comedy video is hardly a strong and compelling argument.

    Really? thanks for stating the obvious.

    I'm saying that there are tories that must have very strong racist tendencies, as it was only 30 years ago. A lot of racism is going to exist in the tory party for a long time. :yep:

    yeah and kings and queens used to get people beheaded and go into battle and kill people with blunt objects, therefore the monarchy should be dissolved.

    My point is that they are undoubtedly the most racist and anti-immigration of 'the big three'

    Yes, they are the most anti-immigration. That does not mean they are racist. None of the big three are racist.

    No, because nobody asked which piece of sand was biggest on the beach, it was a question about racism in politics. Clever clogs :yep:

    There are no big pieces of sand on the beach, just like there are no racist parties in the big 3 of British politics.

    Racism is a SPECTRUM. I'm saying that the conservatives are more racist than the other two. It's not black or white, racist or not racist! :eek:

    *channels Libertarian Party*

    (Original post by lpuk.org)
    As a party we are committed to establishing the free movement of goods, capital and people. However, the free movement of people into the UK is not yet practical while we have both a large welfare state and most other countries are themselves not broadly Libertarian in nature.

    As soon as it is practical to establish free movement between individual countries we will do so. To expedite this we aim to establish bilateral agreements with nations to enable bidirectional flows of people similar to that between Australia and New Zealand. The more the distortions of the Welfare State are negated, the more we will be able to enter into bilateral arrangements.

    A free flow notwithstanding, any Libertarian government will reserve the right to eject or refuse entry to foreign nationals convicted in a court of law as part of the Government's prime role in protecting the population and maintaining Rule of Law.

    Until bilateral arrangements are in place, and in line with the Rule of Law, a transparent and consistent points-based system is one of the key measures that we are proposing.

    I'm aware it's a spectrum. All of the big three are on the "zero" end of that spectrum. :p:

    Good to see you don't understand the concept of a spectrum. Incrementally the tories are MORE racist.

    I'd consider Labour more racist since they treat people as groups rather than individuals.

    are you stupid?
    the tories dont want to kick out people of any race.
    they dont discriminate against race. hence not racist
    seriously this is getting stupid. tight immigration doesnt equal racism.

    I have a great grasp of a spectrum. You don't have a good grasp of the fact that there are more than 3 parties in British politics, so the fact I put the "big 3" all at zero is acceptable.
