Unity in the Community say:
The papers say Britain is under siege from asylum seekers.
Asylum seekers are blamed for higher taxes, crime, rising
house prices, hospital waiting lists, cheap labour, terrorism and AIDS. Mainstream politicians either agree or refuse to challenge these stories. There are two possible reasons for this press campaign. Only one of them can be true. The ﬁrst is that fake refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe really are responsible for most of Britain’s problems. Many people believe asylum seekers are one of our society’s biggest problems. No wonder. The scare stories printed every day in the Sun, Express, Star and Mail are hardly ever challenged in the press or in parliament. That’s why we’ve set out some facts that might make you see things diﬀerently. We think they show that asylum seekers are not causing these problems, but that asylum seekers are being used as scapegoats.Asylum seekers are blamed for higher taxes, crime, rising house prices, hospital waiting lists, cheap labour,
It’s the oldest trick in the book. Blame the other fella. Divide and rule. We
produced this leaﬂet because we’re fed up too. Fed up with services that get worse instead of better Fed up with council tax hikes and impossible house prices. Fed up with schools and hospitals being run down and sold oﬀ piecemeal. Fed up with low pay and crime.
Above all, we’re fed up being lied to about why this is happening.
