GUEST,pat Folklore: Padstow 'Darkie Days' (141* d) RE: Folklore: Padstow 'Darkie Days' 22 Jan 07

We didn't simply look at where the most racist incidents occurred. We compared those numbers to the size of the ethnic minority population affected by them, to show relatively who was most at risk. What emerged was a clear picture of rural racism, in which areas such as Devon and Cornwall, Northumbria, Cumbria and Durham, with small ethnic minority populations, had some of the biggest problems.

Four years on, as we count down to another election - one in which immigration has been put into play by both major parties - the time has come to take stock. We have repeated the exercise, using Home Office data quietly released over the past few weeks. The result? Very little has improved and in places the situation is much worse.

The above article from The Guardian..but then you wouldn't be intersted or ashamed of that would you Michael?

Enjoy your tradition.
