Nastiness (part 1 of many)
A council leader has said he is “absolutely horrified” over government plans to drive vans through his borough with adverts calling on illegal immigrants to leave.
Brent’s Muhammed Butt said the plan was an “act of desperation” and that more needed to be done to process people’s claims.
He added it would “just drive people underground”.

Nasty to immigrants – let’s hope that the targets don’t speak good English. I know the current government does not believe in translation services. However some EDL members (and their like) do have basic literacy and may feel mandated to assist the government.
It is also pretty nasty (and abusive) to local councils and their residents – what happened to localism?
