Statistics chief Karen Dunnell inflames row over foreign workers - Times Online
The UK’s official statistician weighed into the debate about foreign workers yesterday by highlighting the growing numbers of immigrants getting jobs while the British workforce declines....

Keith Vaz, the Labour chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said that he would raise concerns about the release of the figures with the Prime Minister today. “The danger is that such information could be misconstrued or misused by those who do not support the view that Britain should be a diverse and multicultural society,” he said.

Wouldn't want the civilians having access to the figures, only professional politicians should be able to see them....


In that one sentence, Keith Vaz illustrates three of the fundamental principles of the enemy class.
1. If the truth gets in your way suppress it or ignore it.
2. Never let your policy be in any way influenced by facts.
3. Never trust the people.
Of course, this is in no way limited to immigration statistics. It applies to all areas of policy.
