Nigel 'Enoch' Hastilow is still Tory candidate as Cameron dithers and dithers...

Conservative Party members have declined to accept the resignation of Nigel Hastilow as their parliamentary candidate following the dithering and lack of leadership by David Cameron in the row over the 'Enoch was right' comments.

Almost a fortnight after he apparently resigned, according to the official website for Halesowen and Rowley Regis Conservative Party, the disgraced Mr Hastilow is still their parliamentary candidate.

David Cameron failed to either sack Mr Hastilow or condemn his comments and instead sent Caroline Spelman to have a word with him.

Ms Spelman later admitted on television last Sunday that she tried to persuade Nigel Hastilow to stay on as a Tory candidate - but he resigned.

The Daily Telegraph also reported that Tory High Command tried to keep Mr Hastilow as their candidate, but he resigned after refusing to be gagged.

There's also this Mystery as Party backs Hastilow story in his local paper, the Express & Star.

A week on, Nigel Hastilow's own website also declares that he is the candidate.

In contrast to Cameron's dithering, his predessessor Ted Heath acted decisively and immediately to sack Enoch Powell after his infamous 'rivers of blood' speech which he made to rally Tory support against anti-discrimination legislation brought in by the Labour Government of the day.

Glad to hear it.

Mr Hastilow said that when you ask most people in the Black Country what the single biggest problem facing the country is, most say immigration. He went on to say that many insist ‘Enoch Powell was right’. What is meant by this is Enoch Powell’s famous ‘rivers of blood’ speech.

Work and Pensions Secretary, Peter Hain, insisted on the Andrew Marr show that this exposed the racist underbelly in the Conservative Party. However this is just typical far-left hysteria. What Mr Hain forgot was that Mr Hastilow was expressing the views of people in the Black Country and not necessarily his own.

Although let us be honest, Enoch Powell was absolutely 100% correct. He was saying that unchecked immigration could destroy this country. And ‘surprise, surprise’ almost 40 years later that is precisely what we are seeing. But it is not just unchecked immigration that is destroying this country it also the doctrine of multiculturalism.

Unchecked immigration and multiculturalism have let to a massive increase in Muslims, which has let to an increase in mosques and this has let to home grown terrorists who try to blow up people on their way to work. If this country kept a better grip on immigration and introduced assimilation, like they have in the USA, then we would not have home-grown terrorists.

Another problem with multiculturalism is the constant pandering to the ethnic minorities. We now have a situation that employers can not employ the best person for the job but have to employ a black or asian person in order to fulfil a quota imposed upon them by the Commission For Racial Equality.

Under multiculturalism it is ok for foreigners to speak their own language and not bother to learn English properly or at all! The biggest problem with this can be see within the NHS where doctors and nurses are supposed to help patients but this is becoming increasing problematic because the patients sometimes can not understand what the doctors or nurses are saying due to their lack of correct English.

I know some Tory tossers are going to say that Enoch Powell was not right and how my comments are disgraceful but according to American pollster Douglas Schoen and University of Oxford academic R.W. Johnson, Enoch Powell had directly attracted 2.5 million voters to the Conservative Party at the 1970 general election and the Conservatives won the election as a result. So the Tories should show some gratitude towards the legacy of Enoch Powell.

I believe that any immigrants to the UK have to follow the laws of this country and be able to speak English correctly. If I went to live in another country I would have to obey their laws and speak their language so why shouldn’t we expect immigrants to Britain to follow British laws and be able to speak English.

Mr Hastilow should certainly not let left wing loonies like you get him down.
