Early Day Motion 2874 - persecuting & tormenting the indigenous British even further

Thought you might want a glimpse of this Early Day Motion, tabled on Thursday and  currently making its way through Westminster. You might have thought that just occasionally one of those wretches that ply their trade in this place might just cut a bit of slack to the indigenous population. Oh no, instead they seize on every possible opportunity they can to persecute and torment us even more.

Early day motion 2874
GOVERNMENT WORK ON RACE EQUALITY
Session: 2010-12
Date tabled: 15.03.2012
Primary sponsor: Michael, Alun

That this House notes the publication of the Government's integration strategy; recognises that it is important to foster integration but notes that this is not a substitute for action to tackle racism and racial injustice; is concerned that racial inequalities persist in society; further recognises findings from the Ethnic Minority British Election Study that 57 per cent. of ethnic minorities believe that there is racial discrimination in the UK, with 36 per cent. reporting personal experience of discrimination; welcomes the Government's recent work to tackle racism and racial inequalities in football; calls on the Government to extend this commitment by tackling the racial inequalities faced by ordinary people; and urges the Government to publish a cross-departmental race equality strategy with clear, measurable outcomes.

In a happier development you'll be pleased to know that the seeds I saved from my Tesco Finest Piccolo Cherry Tomatoes have come to life. Whether or not they produce anything is entirely another matter.
