This hostile environment is making me so angry.
You're not the only one Intiniki. Just been reading about an 82 year old woman who has been here since the 1950s, answered the call for Commonwealth citizens to help rebuild the country after the war, worked as a nurse in the NHS. Children and grandchildren here. She went to Jamaica for a funeral and was denied right of return. Absolutely shameful. Today it is being reported that the government plans to force people to prove their identities at polling stations in May's local elections. Which will disenfranchise members of minority ethnic communities, according to a leaked letter to ministers from the equality and human rights watchdog. This lot need to be ousted, whichever way you cut it this is fascism, pure and simple. This is not the country i grew up in, what is happening now is indefensible. Fast reaching the stage where i am ashamed to be British.
