‘Poor Doors’ Show the Tories’ Attitude to Anyone Who Isn’t A Rich Public Schoolboy – Beastrabban\’s Weblog


Part of the Republican electoral strategy in America under George ‘Dubya’ Bush was capitalising on the fears and resentments of ‘angry White men’, writes the Beast.

These were mostly lower class White males, who felt threatened economically and socially by the advancement of women and non-whites as they competed with them for jobs and social status.

Over here it’s likely that any such election broadcasts or literature would be illegal under current equalities legislation and laws against fomenting racial hatred; nevertheless the Tories have tried something similar.

I distinctly remember the line in one article that said, ‘There’s only one ethnic minority that isn’t welcome in central London, and that’s White working class men.’ Or words to that effect. All this was due to political correctness and left-wing councils with their positive discrimination policies.

The construction of ‘poor doors’ and segregated entrances for rich and poor in new housing in the capital shows how seriously the Tories really take trying to reach out to an impoverished and threatened White working class: they don’t. Working and lower middle class Whites, like their Black or Asian friends and neighbours, are very definitely regarded as unwelcome neighbours for the rich. They are to be kept well away from them at arms length, if not to be excluded altogether from traditional working class areas now being colonised and gentrified by the affluent.

The same can be said about Farage and UKIP.

    Cllr Jane MA Martin (who doesn’t say which council she represents) sent the following on Google+: “This isn’t a Tory policy it is something agreed by developers and councils I think you will find quite a number of Labour Councils encourage this. In my own Borough we have just refused a developers plans on this issue strangely we are a conservative administration.”

    Do we accept this?

      Here’s my response:

      Labour opposes poor doors. Labour MPs have done so, in the press, often since the issue came to prominence.
      And this is the point – developers have only started introducing poor doors since a Conservative-led Coalition has been in government. If Labour councils have allowed them, it is because they have been presented as a fait accompli, with developers refusing to provide any social housing at all if this was not the case.
      It seems to me – and I’m sure you will agree – that this is yet another problem arising from Margaret Thatcher’s disastrous decision to force councils into selling off their social housing stock. She refused to allow them to use the money this raised to refresh that stock, leading to the shortage of social housing that councils are now being forced to address by negotiating with profit-driven developers.
      It’s an appalling situation created by a Tory administration whose intention was clearly to destabilise the working class. You can read more on that in the academic paper ‘The Impact of Thatcherism on Health and Well-Being in Britain’ – http://www.liv.ac.uk/~alexss/thatcherism.pdf
