Yes, I would agree with Mr Brown that these sounded like the words of a bigot:
“All these Eastern Europeans what are coming in, where are they flocking from?”
Actually it sounds exasperatingly pig ignorant as well.
Brown ought to have ballsed it out. Mrs Duffy sounded like the voice of the Express. Instead Brown wimped out by issuing six apologies to the deranged harridan. And not only that but by apologising to her he tacitly bought the BNP agenda that everything would be hunky-dory if only we didn’t have these foreigners coming over here.
Labour are clearly terrified of losing the white working class vote to the BNP are they not? I reckon Nick Griffin poured himself a large one and had a belly laugh over this farce.
I don’t know whether that was an epic fail or Brown merely being yellow.
Don’t get me wrong here. Immigration is a topic we ought to debate but it is one like the prohibition of drugs which cannot seemingly be addressed within the public sphere in an even vaguely rational manner. Immigration has become toxic because it is so conflated with asylum, “diversity” and benefits and such like. I could go on all day about this but I will simply pose a question - why does this country (and many other countries) make it so hard for people who actually like us to come and live here?
