If That Was Our Finest Hour, This Is Probably Our Feeblest [Aug. 2nd, 2015|01:34 pm]
Tony Grist
Between 2,000 and 3,000 people in Calais- most of whom are refugees from the hell holes we've done our best to poke (invading Iraq, bombing Libya)- and we're reacting as though it were 1940 and the nazi hordes were massing on the far side of the Channel. It's cruel, weak-minded and pathetic.

Oh, and deeply racist (but of course we're not racist are we? Perish the thought!)

I'm ashamed of my country at the moment.

And yet both our nations have a not ignoble history of welcoming migrants and refugees...

Can you send some here? It is cold, and the paperwork is horrendous, but we need 300,000 immigrants a year to keep our tax base up.
