Ed Miliband was last night accused of displaying contempt for voters after his polling guru said their anti-immigration views made him ‘depressed’.

James Morris made a series of scornful remarks after holding a focus group meeting intended to help the party devise Election-winning policies on the issue.

Mr Morris, a key member of the Labour leader’s strategy unit, dismissed the views of those present as ‘fill jobs with Brits’.

His outburst reflects tensions among Mr Miliband’s team over immigration. The party is haunted by claims that the last Labour Government was responsible for mass immigration from Eastern Europe–and divided over whether Mr Miliband should take a stronger line.

Mr Morris, a former No 10 adviser to Tony Blair at the time of the ‘open-door’ policy, used the social-networking website Twitter to announce on Monday evening: ‘Recipe for a miserable evening: off to do focus groups on immigration.’

And afterwards, he wrote, in a line dripping with sarcasm: ‘Tonight’s focus groups as progressive as I hoped,’ adding: ‘Their plan: end migration and fill jobs with Brits who have to take job.’

He declared that it had left him ‘depressed, as you might imagine’.

The liberal views on immigration of many of Labour’s frontbenchers are not shared by most voters.

In a recent opinion poll, 72 per cent of respondents favoured slamming the door on unskilled immigrants, while 59 per cent thought we should allow fewer relatives of people already living in Britain into the country to join them.

The findings forced Mr Miliband to announce that, if he wins the next Election, he will introduce measures to help British workers.

Last night, Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi said of Mr Morris’s remarks: ‘This shows the contempt Labour and Ed Miliband have for the public. They don’t want to hear people’s views about immigration.

‘Instead they want to censor and shut down any sensible and rational debate on an extremely important subject.

‘It’s the same old Labour. Anyone who doesn’t share their world view is mocked and attacked.’

A spokesman for Ed Miliband declined to comment.

    My, almost sounds like “bitter clingers.”

    Or, “If you like your England, you can keep it.”

      The socialist/’progressives’ and their name calling. Kind of like ‘xenophobe’, ‘raaaycist’, and ‘Christian’. Well, then they’re ‘xenophiles’, ‘foreign fetishists’, ‘godless heathens’, ‘immoral, valueless ignoramuses’, etc. Time to take the gloves off!

      I’m beginning to think Edward I had the smartest immigration policy: No Joooose.

    A substantial majority of the British public have ALWAYS been against immigration, going all the way back to the 60s and 70s. Is there really anyone dumb enough to believe that the Liblabcon Cerberus is all of a sudden going to start listening to what English people actually want?

    The worst part is that Jewish Ed (bug-eyed) Miliband’s family were given refuge by Britain from the Nazis, probably saving their lives. How does he repay such kindness? By wanting to destroy the country with mass third-world immigration.

    • Triarius

      Yep. In fact it would probably be an even higher percentage if they asked only real British people. The fact that there are so many immigrants there already and they would normally be pro immigration. This also explains the large difference between those against immigration and those against letting in relatives.

      • David Ashton

        In 1968 75% polled their support for Powell’s speech on immigration.
        So your point is valid.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Sounds like weary old Mr. Ed just can’t stomach the insectoid buzzings from his…um…constituents.

          Don’t those irritating, semi-educated, working class racists understand that they need to be wiped out and replaced? Who does the working class racist (White native) Briton think the Labour Party supports? Labour? Labor?

          HA HA! Working class racist Briton needs to go to the Universities and learn all about how he needs to be replaced and eradicated. Mr. Ed gets this and is understandably upset most racist Britons don’t, it seems…

          Looks like pretty damning evidence Mr. Ed and his ilk really do hate the common White Brit…

          • David Ashton

            This “working class” Englishman from Walthamstow went to university and learned even more about what our real enemies were up to. I opposed them before, and ever since.

    • IstvanIN

      They always repay kindness with evil. Look at the US and Australia.

    • gemjunior

      No good deed towards them goes unpunished. I hate them.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        The Slavs hate them with incendiary fury, and I despise them totally because what they did tore my family apart.

  • Spartacus

    Why was my post moded ? All I did was say that people should read about this guy’s father.

  • Truthseeker

    Leftists of any stripe couldn’t care less about what the average person wants or needs. Their minds are fixated on their utopian ideals that they insist should work, despite all evidence to the contrary. When the average person doesn’t go along with it, they’re honestly baffled, and can’t comprehend why this would be. The only conclusion they can come up with is that these people are some great unwashed that needs to be coercively corrected or exterminated. Intelligence without common sense is dangerous.

    • me

      I wouldn’t call them ‘intelligent’. I’d call them mad fanatics to a utopian myth, fixated on their xenophilia.

      • Franklin_Ryckaert

        I think it is worse than that. I think these people know damned well what they are doing. Their aim is to destroy the white race by means of mass non-white immigration, forced integration and strongly suggested miscegenation. A populace of raceless, rootles, dumbed down zombies if far easier to control than one of selfconscious Whites.

        • Brian

          I used to think it was all coincidental, like how individual purchases combine to create the illusion of the ‘invisible hand’ of the free market. Perhaps it is that way for some who are more focused on a specific issue– Hispanics want open borders not for some master plan but just to keep their own hides here and bring in their family from Mexico, etc. Some blacks might not want to destroy us, just keep the gibs train rolling and it never occurs to them what effect it has. But I’m convinced now that there at least some, including Miliband, who like you say, actually have thought through all the angles and actively want to bring us down. I hope I live long enough to participate in the reckoning.

          • Franklin_Ryckaert

            If you still have doubts whether it is deliberate and systematic or not, go to anti-white media for examples and analyses of pro-miscegenation and general anti-white propaganda in the media. The non-white immigrants are only tools in this plot.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        They are not intelligent, they are utter sociopaths with NO empathy or understanding of ordinary people whose goal is the extermination of the native population.

  • Spartacus

    Why do you want to hide the info about this guy’s father? I didn’t even say the dreaded “J” word…

    “..The party is haunted by claims that the last Labour Government was responsible for mass immigration from Eastern Europe..”

    See how they side step the racial angle of immigration at every possible chance. Though brits don’t like eastern europeans taking their jobs either, the majority of anger comes from the fact they let in third-world immigrants from india, pakistan, bangladesh, and africa. You don’t see brits complaining about Luton or “Londonistan” because of some polacks, or about eastern europeans attacking and raping white british.

    • Sick of it

      Darn those Eastern Europeans grooming little white girls and such…oh wait.

      • Sick of it

        Bah, here’s the picture.

        • Chris Granzow XI

          You gotta be kidding me. That’s ridiculous. It’s worse than the 3 Africans who only had to mow the police station’s lawn after committing rape.

          • me

            I hope they each had to use their teeth to do it, with plenty of dog feces to chew through.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            No, because it was supposed to be a “punishment.”

        • me

          It’s so strange that these fully-grown troglodytes are considered ‘immature’, ‘mentally or socially challenged’, ‘youths’, ‘disadvantaged’, etc. These judges should be forced out of office, put in a public pillory with raw eggs, rotten vegetables, and manure available for people to pelt them with. Ditto the politicians, journalists, etc that keep excusing these monsters for their heinous crimes.

        • Brian

          Why is there no mention of the girl’s parents here? They don’t get to offer an opinion on this? We just get the rapist’s (er, I mean “naive co-victim’s”) side of it?

        • Spartacus

          And that’s not even the worst case this year…

            These fiends should be found dead with their privates and their heads cut off in a ditch somewhere, with ham and bacon on them for good measure.

          • Chris Granzow XI

            There’s a lot we could learn from Vlad these days..

          • Sick of it

            I’m not even Eastern European, but wholeheartedly agree. One cannot appease the followers of Mahomet.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            You can bet Ivan the Terrible and the other early Russian Tsars did from Vlad the Impaler. So did a descendent of his. one Elizabeth Bathory, also known as the “Blood Countess.” I can’t imagine a worse enemy for the Muslims than a woman with her tendencies.

          • Chris Granzow XI

            It’s also telling that the west calls him “Ivan the Terrible” while eastern europe calls him “Ivan the Great (formidable).”

          • gemjunior

            I wonder when some Swedish and/or Norwegian fathers are going to get together and do this? The people should at the very least, be throwing ham and bacon at them in the street, plant it where they don’t want it, whatever. Find out what underhanded guerilla tactics that can be used on them, because they are dehumanizing the people hosting their worthless asses. I have a feeling they’ve already beat the fight out of the Swedish.

  • Anna Tree

    And Nadhim Zahawi is the one tolling the bell!! Sigh… that is because any British (white British is redundant) who would do it would be call a racist….

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    In 2010, on the campaign trail Gordon Brown called Labour voter Gillian Duffy a “bigoted woman” because she dared to raise the immigration topic with him. This was accidentally broadcast because he neglected to remove his microphone after entering his limousine. Contempt for indigenous Whites is common to elites on both sides of the Atlantic.

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    Never gonna happen. The powers that be have all the guns.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Guns and other weaponry can be taken from our enemies and turned against them.

  • Paleoconn

    Heaven forfend that Brits should want to have jobs in their own country! The outrage!

  • Harvey42

    Want? They will bet what they need.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    He’s depressed?! Has it ever occurred to him the average white Briton has every reason to be depressed when they know the ruling elite had declared a war of racial replacement and extermination against THEM, also known as ethnic cleansing? Depression is in reality anger directed inwards, but what elitist tyrants like Mr. Miliband forget is that volcano of anger is going to be turned outwards against them. The dire prediction of “rivers of blood” in the streets of England will come true, and the ruling elite will own total responsibility for it. How could it not when white Britons are forced to mount an “Operation Werewolf” against them.

  • jackryanvb

    We need to do better PR on who’s the enemy. It simply doesn’t work to make White Christian Eastern Europeans “the enemy” – after all, England went in to World War II on behalf of defending the Polish from German attack.

    Nasty Roma Gypsies from Eastern Europe work better as “we need to keep them out”, Paki, Afghan Muslim extremists, child rapists work the best as our side doesn’t get dismissed as being the same as Nazis as these Muslim extremists are also attacking Jews in Israel, also attacking gay rights, women’s rights etc.

    Please go with what works. Populist parties in Switzerland, Holland and other European countries have jumped to #3,#2, #1 by focusing on the Muslim immigration invasion – we English speaking race realists, populists, nationalists seem to have a very hard time going the easy way, going with what works.

    Don’t even let me get started on the insane, treasonous American cult of race denying Libertarian loons like Ron and Rand Pau!

    Again, go with what works. Tell regular White people what they want to hear. Nobody like ugly, nasty, racially alien, NW Muslim terrorists, child rapists!

  • jackryanvb

    Contact this RINO’s staff,

    by NAME. Take the time and money to learn staff members by name.

    Be polite, and legal, but be tough. You/we have to make this personal. There must be a personal cost to these traitors for their treason.

    Burning people in effigy was once a great custom of our people. We need to recover good customs that worked in the past and can work for us now.

    We have to stop whining and writing polite letters that nobody of importance even reads.

    Look what the Left did to CA GOP governor The Terminator Arnold – they showed up at his house!

    Make it personal and don’t waste your/our time with gun fantasies. The anti White Left took over our universities and most tax exempt churches by using tactics, force that didn’t include guns or explosives. Our side has to learn how to do the same.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      I agree, for now those tactics are the ones to employ. The time for guns and explosives will come soon enough, and don’t wish for it because if you do not die in the violence, a LOT of those close to you will. Do not resort to that unless our enemies force us to, for your loved ones sakes.

  • Labour in shock pro-immigration view horror! lol. Miliband, especially, is hardly going to be against immigration is he!

    Remember that “apology” speech he gave for their immigration record? Here are some extracts of this “apology”:

    “To have the right debate about immigration, we must avoid two dangers.The first is the trap of wishing away public concern about immigration, failing to address it, and hoping it goes away.*The second is either in rhetoric or in promises made, suggesting that we can close Britain off from the world, when all of us know we cannot*”.

    “So let me start with a basic truth.Britain must control its borders but it must always face outwards to the world.The Britain I believe in is a confident and optimistic country, not one which is insecure and inward looking”.

    “If people are looking for a politician who says immigration is just bad for Britain, that’s not me. I believe immigration has benefits, economically, culturally and socially. Our economy has gained from being open to talent from across the world.Some who have come here have gone on to win Nobel prizes, run successful businesses and lecture in our universities”.

    “Britain’s industry, music, sport and art have been enriched by the arrival of different cultures. On Sunday when England take on Italy in the European Championships,
    many of our team will be the children or grandchildren of immigrants”.

    “I love this city. London. A global city. That won the Olympics because we’re a multi-ethnic city. And part of the reason I love my country is because we have a proud history of welcoming those fleeing persecution”.

    “I am the son of immigrants and I am hugely proud of it. I will always talk about immigration in a way that is true to who I am, to my heritage, to my mum and dad”.

    To be fair to Ed (if that is even possible) he did make a lot of ‘bread and butter’ arguments of a traditional-Labour/Socialist nature that many former BNP members would subscribe to, including myself. (The effect of lowering their wages, the lack of apprenticeships, and so on and so forth. It is all standard stuff).

    Unfortunately for Ed, and the wider Labour party, they care not who the British people are – or rather, what comprises British people. He is proud of what they have done to London, and would clearly like to see it increased providing ‘economically’ nobody was losing out.

    This is why some of us favour ‘social nationalism’.

    Letting labour get their hands on the immigration levers again could be seen two ways: On the one hand it would be an act of treachery being continued – and on the other, perhaps an act of mercy, by putting us out of our misery and just getting it all over with.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    So, you mean to tell me you’d rather have some black jamaicans move in next door, instead of some ukrainians? You’d rather have your sister date a Mohammad from Pakistan, instead of Wladislaw from Krakow? I do understand wanting just native brits in england (anglo-saxons and celtics) and that’s legitimate in my opinion. There are many differences between different northern-european races alone, that might be hard to see by the untrained eye. But for the most part, it’s pretty ridiculous to prefer indians over slavic europeans. Eastern europeans are no doubt the lesser of two evils.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Funny, most Eastern Europeans I meet speak English, and do not live off welfare, and for your information I am a Ukrainian and Russian American. My father left my country a better place than when he found it, and you are better off with some Slavs in your land that will assimilate in one or two generations than Muslims and Indians who NEVER will. If you met me, you would never guess I am not a WASP.
