Reader’s Comment of the Day: We’ve had an immigration crisis for years


In response to William Griffiths: Just be thankful the witless Corbyn is not in charge of the migrant crisis, Earthenware wrote:

One of the things that strikes me as odd about the current migrant furore is that we are making such a fuss about a few thousand would-be immigrants causing trouble in Calais when Mr Cameron’s government has been allowing hundreds of thousands of immigrants per year into Britain since 2010.

I agree that Mr Corbyn’s naive approach is a cause for concern, but really the only difference between himself and Mr Cameron is that one openly advocates unlimited immigration while the other practices it whilst indulging in dishonest spin to pretend that he doesn’t.

Mr Corbyn is a dangerous socialist but at least he is honest about it. I see very little practical difference between Labour and Modern Tory immigration policies. One involves virtue-signalling and the other involves dishonest posturing, but the end result is the same – virtually unlimited immigration with no democratic mandate.
