Anyone catch the BBC report on Brown’s new citizenship points plan? Have a read of this, it is quite a lengthy report. All good? No. For example, the BBC is mute on the fact that immigrants are to be given tips on how to access benefits and other public services – and learning how to claim will even help them earn British citizenship!
“Mentors will be provided to coach those wanting to settle permanently in the UK while local authorities will be expected to lay on “orientation days” to provide advice on services, under plans unveiled on Monday. It is part of moves to introduce a points-based system for those wanting British citizenship and attendance of one of the days would provide additional points towards that goal. “
Wow – now that IS getting tough! It’s remarkable to see the BBC spinning away for the truly wretched Phil Woolas but I suppose it’s multiculti uber alles for the State Broadcaster all the time.
