“IN 2004, PrivacyInternational, a civil libertiescampaign group based inLondon, awarded MargaretHodge the ‘Big Brother’Award for “Worst PublicServant” after she backedcontroversial governmentmeasures that trespassedupon personal privacy, addedto the power of databasestate and helped undermineour hard-won civil liberties.
In 2004, she stronglydefended the idea of greater state regulationof individuals’ choicesand supported more stateinterference in family life,particularly in the way webring up our children, bydeclaring, “some may call itthe ‘nanny state’, but I call ita force for good”.Of course, Margaret Hodgewould be ‘Super Nanny’ inthat State!
She has also strongly backedthe power of the state toregulate our personal choicesand tastes, including supportfor the smoking ban.She:-
• opposed making the
Freedom of Information Actstronger
• voted to limit your rights
to judicial review
• voted against allowing
legitimate protest outsideParliament
• voted to force us all to carry
ID cardsKevin Scott of the campaigngroup Civil Liberty said:“From ID cards to the rightsof suspects, Hodge has votedagainst freedom time andtime again”
A LEADING trade
union ofcial has asked
if Margaret Hodge was
aware of plans to ood
Britain and the labourmarket with immigrants.Mr. Adam Walker,the President of Solidarity Trade Union -www.solidaritytradeunion.net – said:
“For years, ordinary British working folk have believed that the Labour Party was the party for them. It was a‘socialist’ party – a party for ‘the working class.’They’ve held their nosesand voted for the likesof Margaret Hodge torepresent their interests.“However, it’s beenclear for a long time that Labour has been workingto another agenda. New Labour has lost all interest in the Britishworking people. They’veactively promoted massimmigration and stabbed ordinary workers inthe back. Not just with privatisation and cuts,but also immigration”
Mr. Walker wasresponding to the factthat encouraging massimmigration was a keyLabour Party aim. Thisshocking fact came outin October last year whenMr. Andrew Neather (aspin doctor for Labourbosses Tony Blair,David Blunkett and JackStraw) admitted thatmass immigration was adeliberate Labour policy.
Mr. Neather admittedthat mass immigration“didn’t just happen:the deliberate policy of Ministers from late 2000… was to open up the UKto mass immigration”.
He conrmed that – in
2000 - he helped to writea Government policydocument.Mr. Neather also notedthat this policy document‘included a drivingpolitical purpose: thatmass immigration was theway that the Governmentwas going to make theUK truly multicultural’.Adam Walker told theSentinel:-
“It didn’t seem to occur to the New Labour plotters to ask what the social, economic or cultural implications – or results – might be. It would have been obviousthat poor, working-class areaswould be the worst affected by this policy. Barking and Dagenhamis a shocking example.
“New Labour still seems to beobsessed with multiculturalismand social engineering. Theignore the worries of the peoplewho traditionally vote them into
“Margaret Hodge is only makingconcerned noises now becauseshe knows that immigration isthe issue in this election. Is shereally worried about the impact of immigration – or just keepingher job?
