Prominent British Politician says Immigration Talk not Racist

John Reid is Britain's Home Secretary, one of the most important figures in Britain's center-Left government. So, given Britain's often ludicrous degree of political correctness, it was refreshing to read that he recently said:

"We have to get away from this daft so-called politically correct notion that anybody who wants to talk about immigration is somehow a racist. That isn't the case.".

He is obviously aware that the high rate of immigration into Britain by low-skilled people is very unpopular with many Britons and is clearing the way for more immigration restrictions.
