Only class war

All major industries, transport systems and public utilities

Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear

Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election.
What action on this issue would you like to see the next government

I would like to see an end to the harassment of those fleeing economic disaster and persecution and an opening up of our borders to welcome asylum seekers and those who would like to live in this country
