New Labour Minister calls for 'Rights for Whites'

I know there is an established tradition of 'New Labour, new racism' when it comes to migrant workers, but surely Blair must sack Margaret Hodge after this? Or will New Labour's Industry Minister defect to the BNP first?

Edited to add: Socialist Worker nails Hodge's racist lies about housing

Who needs the BNP? As a Labour member I'm in favour of a broad church approach - - - but this is ridiculous!

Cruddas was speaking along similar lines some time last year. This may become a central plank of his DPM campaign if - as likely - it plays well in the corporate media.

Cruddas has come out against Hodge's racism - but Blears has not, talking about the need to 'tackle immigration'.

Peter Hain has opposed the idea, too. I suppose he's obliged, but I've no doubt he's sincere about it. Still, racism in the Labour Party is nothing new...
