Jack Straw has admitted that opening Britain's borders to Eastern European migrants was a "spectacular mistake".
The former Labour Home Secretary said his party's decision to allow migrants from Poland and Hungary to work in Britain from 2004 was a ‘"well-intentioned policy we messed up".
It comes a day after David Blunkett, Mr Straw's successor as Home secretary, warned British cities could face riots as an influx of Roma migrants creates "frictions" with local people.
The last Labour government predicted that only 13,000 would move to Britain from Poland and other eastern European countries after 2004.
However, more than one million arrived in one of the biggest waves of immigration seen in this country.

Almost every other EU state, apart from Ireland and Sweden, prevented migrants from working for the seven years permitted.
Mr Straw, who is MP for Blackburn, told the Lancashire Telegraph: "One spectacular mistake in which I participated (not alone) was in lifting the transitional restrictions on the Eastern European states like Poland and Hungary which joined the EU in mid-2004.
"Other existing EU members, notably France and Germany, decided to stick to the general rule which prevented migrants from these new states from working until 2011.
"'But we thought that it would be good for Britain if these folk could come and work here from 2004.
"Thorough research by the Home Office suggested that the impact of this benevolence would in any event be 'relatively small, at between 5,000 and 13,000 immigrants per year up to 2010'. Events proved these forecasts worthless.

"Net migration reached close to a quarter of a million at its peak in 2010. Lots of red faces, mine included."
His comments are the furthest any senior Labour figure has gone in admitting the party made a mistake on immigration policy.

On Monday Mr Blunkett said anti-social behaviour by Roma people in his Sheffield constituency has resulted in “understandable tensions” among the indigenous community, and the conflict must be addressed to avert disorder.
Britain is now home to 200,000 Roma migrants, one of the largest populations in Western Europe.
Mr Blunkett said: "We have got to change the behaviour and the culture of the incoming Roma community – because there's going to be an explosion otherwise.
"We have got to be tough and robust in saying to people, “you are not living in a downtrodden village or woodland” – because many of them don’t live in areas where there are toilets or refuse collection facilities."
Earlier this year, Chris Bryant, Labour's immigration spokesman, said it was wrong to ditch controls on migrants in 2004 and claimed far more workers came to Britain "than anybody had anticipated".
The admission came a year after spin doctors for Ed Miliband suggested the Labour leader would admit in a speech that the party's failures on immigration had increased community tensions in Britain. However, the comments were later dropped.
He had been expected to say: "We did too little to tackle the realities of segregation in communities that were struggling to cope."
But the admission was dropped in favour of a vague statement that the party had made "mistakes".
 
As has been said by many posters in this and associated threads, those who ignored or turned a blind eye too it, in the many local authorities and police forces where this mass abuse be carried out should be subjected to criminal proceedings just as much as the perpetrators.


JHB interview with 'Maggie Oliver' clearly indicates that there was a policy of covering up the scale of such abuse. This is of course not 'news' for this thread or for the many of us who have posted in this thread.



The following interview JHB has with 'Andy Burnham' clearly shows that, for all his words of following the evidence, he really does not want too. That the many Labour controlled local authorities who were and continue to be complicit and the many differing police forces, senior officers will continue to cover up both the historic and current abuse.

If there are no proper arrests, and conviction of those at the top of the police and local authorities. Then we will continue to see, both abuse continue and community cohesion go out the window.
 
My bold as is already happening when our pathetic judiciary see them in court
snip "A gang of Somalian women who repeatedly kicked a young woman in the head walked free from court after a judge heard they were "not used to being drunk" because they were Muslim. "
When was that from... I remember it but not the date
 
As posted on the "Labour's fucked" thread - "Tough on Islamophobia, but not so tough on the causes of Islamophobia (no mention of sorting out the grooming gangs whatsoever). Some of the comments seem to reflect how people feel about Long-Bailey's tweet, not going down well at all!"
To get their benefits they must learn English.
 
Post war Britain was essentially socialist as Orwell alluded too.. Great challenges forces people to work along socialist lines and others seek to exploit that position to push they're own wishes onto the rest.

Migration itself, has largely being light touch and economically beneficial to the wealthy. Like a production line, the primary goal is to avoid stopping the production line and potentially costing the owners a chunk of money.
Orwell died 70 years ago, time to re-read his best books again

That's a tad unfair. What about other languages native to these isles like Welsh, Gael or Cornish? Well other than most natives in those regions don't speak them either...

My bold virtually all of these groups speak English as a first language. In Cornwall it was just the odd nutter who spoke the odd word until someone thought they could squeeze grants out of the EU/UN to fund them.
In Wales after the ludicrous and minority decision to go for a Welsh Assembly, English was by far the first language of most people and its only the very costly idiocy of the gogs that is forcing a DEAD language onto everybody there..
I imagine its the same in Scotland & N. Ireland with Gael!!

Point of order, my friend. Welsh is most definitely not a dead language.

I lived in N Wales. Every village had their version of Welsh /English. Sounded more pikey than pikey

People only really learn because you're at the bottom of the pile of job applicants for public sector jobs in Wales otherwise

If you don't do public sector work there is little incentive to use it unless you're a boomer

Odd that, as I hear it spoken conversationally every day.
 
I couldn't quite help myself laughing the other night. I forget what channel it was on but there was an interview between a journalist and the North Eastern Prosecuting officer who just happened to be an Asian. Now this is now and that was then but what tickled me was the worming around, that the HO had been responsible for the funding of Police in times gone by at a time when the CRE had been advocating accepting the norms of immigrant communities- which in effect was don't look and keep off the grass.
Every copper out of basic do know that the concept of using ones initiative once allocated is very much a matter of how it's seen by senior management who invariably has the CS squealing. The fact that the behaviour was inherently wrong and would have led to a blood feud in their own countries if nothing else was completely overlooked. A case of pure moralistic cowardice on the part of the prosecutor, who was assuring us that in fact these things are no longer tolerated and should never have been. As usual the Police were wrong.

A senior police officer admitted that his force ignored the sexual abuse of girls by Pakistani grooming gangs for decades because it was afraid of increasing “racial tensions”, a watchdog has ruled.

After a five-year investigation, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) upheld a complaint that the Rotherham officer told a missing child’s distraught father that the town “would erupt” if it was known that Asian men were routinely having sex with under-age white girls.

The chief inspector is said to have described the abuse as “P*** shagging” and to have said it had been “going on” for 30 years: “With it being Asians, we can’t afford for this to be coming out.”

His incendiary language features in a confidential report by the watchdog…

The UK's Construction output has fallen over the last couple of years. Solution, start building prisons, lots of them.

Fill those prisons with every Politician, every Police Officer, every local Councillor, every care worker and any other piece of sh!t that was involved in the cover up, not just Rotherham, all the other cover ups up and down the UK, with an automatic 30 years up their hoops, no parole.

Review every sentence of those currently convicted and extend their sentence to 50 years, no parole.
