The mainstream media, not least the BBC, has lapped up Gordon Brown's gaffe over the voter he called bigoted yesterday. But its portrayal of the incident has much more insidiously 'normalised' anti-immigrant prejudice - and that is not being talked about. It should be.
When we are told people are 'concerned about immigration', what this signals is a limited and misleading 'numbers game', says Vaughan Jones. Politicians and the media are missing the real global issues and ignoring the human cost of a failed consensus.
For the first time, services will take place at Westminster Abbey and the Methodist Central Hall (opposite the Houses of Parliament) at the same time, celebrating the place of migrants in modern British society.
