The news that Nigel Hastilow, a Tory candidate, is to be asked to speak to senior Tory officials after he apparently praised Enoch Powell's "Rivers of Blood" speech should come as no surprise to anyone who follows the constant racist undertones emanating from the Conservative party.
In recent months we have had these sorts of comments from MP's, from Peers and advisers to David Cameron, accusations from Tory candidates, plus we have to ask questions about the way they campaign in local elections.
You could just put this down to one rogue individuals, and I do not believe for one moment that the Tory party condones these sorts of comments. most Tories I know are as opposed to racism as I am. However, they need to start asking themselves why it is that racists are attracted to their party and why some senior people believe that pandering to racism in speeches, in newspaper articles, is something that is wanted by Tory members.
