Deport hate spitters -- a Major breakthrough!
Finally, someone is saying the previously unsayable -- deport all those who spit hate. John Major comes out of the past to give some timely advice in the war on terror. How long will we tolerate vipers in our midst?
How long will we tolerate intolerance?
And as for the "shoot to kill" policy which resulted in the regrettable
death of a Brazilian immigrant the other day, Major prefers to call it
"shoot to protect". It is inexplicable why this man jumped a turnstile
and ran away from cops who shouted at him to halt, running aboard a
train wearing a heavy, padded winter coat. What were the cops supposed

afraid of authorities, but he had obviously not stepped off the banana
boat yesterday, and knew what was going on in England. Let this be a
lesson to all those who are used to British Bobbies who don't even pack

Mr Major added: "As far as those who literally spit hate at our country
and there are some of them - they spit hate at our country and they
incite - I personally would be prepared to deport those where it is
clear that what they are doing is causing civil unrest and may cost
other people, as a result of that, their lives."
He also called for more CCTV cameras to deter the threat and the use of
intercept evidence in courts. Interviewed on the BBC Radio 4 Today
programme, Mr Major urged the Government to consult widely over new
"They are going to have to carry people with them at this moment," he
He also defended the controversial shoot-to kill policy that led to the
death of Jean Charles de Menezes.
"I rather prefer the expression shoot to protect rather than shoot to
kill - I think that is a more accurate description of what
