Evict the Tories: blame the bosses not immigrants

Issue No. 2343

People are already sick of millionaire ministers insisting on the need to slash benefits.

Now the Tory toffs and their Ukip buddies are shouting that we should blame immigrants for everything—from low pay to long NHS waits, to lack of housing.

But it’s the Tories’ austerity plans, not migrant workers, that hit the poorest and the most vulnerable.

The cuts deliberately target people with disabilities. And the Tories’ new “bedroom tax” is designed to have you evicted if you have a spare room.

Thousands will suffer, and many will lose their homes, but not one immigrant will be responsible for this misery.

It’s the politicians on the rampage who are to blame. They don’t just have an extra bedroom—they have at least one extra one house.

Instead of paying higher taxes, these fat cats claim expenses to top up their bloated salaries.

Across Britain people are getting together to say they have had enough. Civil service workers this week voted for walkouts.

We need more such action. A show of working class anger is the power that can evict the Tories.
