Unison calls for racism to be removed from politics
Unison, the UK’s largest public sector trade union, is calling for racism to be kicked out of politics, following the BNP’s vow never to be a ‘multi racial’ despite removing their ‘white’s only’ rules.
The BNP were forced to changed their rules after successful legal action against them.
Unison General Secretary, Dave Prentis, said: “Without the efforts of workers from abroad, the NHS would crumble, our schools couldn’t function and our elderly and vulnerable would be without the care they need. It is time that this massive contribution to our country was recognised.
“The BNP’s commitment not to be a ‘whites only’ party should not fool anyone. It is a ploy to make sure they can take part in the next election.
“They were forced to make a change to their constitution after legal action was taken against them. The party are already backtracking by promising not to become ‘multi racial’.
“However much they try to deny it, racism is at the heart of the BNP. And racism should have no part in 21st century Britain. It is time to kick racism out of politics.”
