Stoking the fire of prejudice

Vote Leave’s new co-ordinated campaign claims millions of Turkish people will emigrate to the UK if we stay in the EU.  Vote Leave also claims Turkish citizens here put our national security at risk because of their high level of criminality.    

Our very own Tory Police and Crime Commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld, seems to have learnt his lines well.   He says we should get out because “murder rates and ‘serious violence’, driven by eastern European gangs, are on the rise”.

He seems to have forgotten that a few weeks ago his election leaflet asked us to vote for him because crime had fallen under his watch. 

Can’t have it both ways, Tony.  Perhaps you should do your homework and give us the evidence.
