Today I attended the opening of the Festival in support of the Victoria Crescent Appeal at the Weighbridge Square.
We know there is a great deal of racism against the Polish and Portuguese community. The word "immigrants" is on many lips as I canvass. I have to keep explaining that cheap labour means bigger profits for employers in a casualised labour market. It is easy at a time of economic difficulty to seek easy explanations. The Jews have learnt that lesson the hard way over many centuries as minorities in Eastern Europe, including Poland itself.
