‘Katie Hopkins, unlike her critics, is offering a proposal to save the refugees’ lives’
Paul Wood writes:
Her solution is, of course, the right one. Regrettably, harsh though it may sound, the European Union has urgently to stop accepting refugees from outside Europe and resile from the the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, in order to save refugees’ lives and in order to save Europe from what is in effect an invasion. A British admiral made this point back in 2006. This invasion of refugees is a far bigger threat than Russia. Leaving the UN Convention, which was agreed in an utterly different world, would do more good than renewing Trident.
But are there any politicians brave enough to say this, except the far right? Winston Churchill would have agreed with every word of Katie Hopkins’s piece, but he would nowadays be beyond the pale.
