Conservative conference slammed as return of the nasty party as senior Tories take aim at foreigners
SOME delegates have snored their way through large sections of this Tory conference.
But only the doziest could possibly have missed the loud and clear message yesterday – the Nasty Party are on the warpath against foreigners.
Senior Cabinet ministers lined up to ape UKIP and announce draconian new crackdowns on overseas workers and students.
New Home Secretary Amber Rudd angered business chiefs, the Scottish Government and higher education leaders with plans to make it harder for firms to hire from abroad and for universities to admit foreign students.
