Tory candidate resigns over Enoch remarks...but questions remain

I see a Tory parliamentary candidate in the West Midlands has been forced to resign this afternoon after suggesting that Enoch Powell was right in his infamous 'Rivers of Blood' speech.

While David Cameron may claim that he is changing the Conservative Party, this story demonstrates that the grassroots of the Tory Party haven't changed.

Same old Nasty Party.

Two questions:

1. Why did David Cameron not sack Nigel Hastilow immediately for unacceptable comments rather than dither for 24 hours?

2. Why has David Cameron not condemned Nigel Hastilow's comments?

Why should he resign for telling the truth and representing his constituents?

Maybe now people will see that all mainstream politicians are obsessed with pandering to minority groups and actually vote for a party that will stand up for the indigenous people.
