Yes, it seems the Tories really are modelling themselves on the Nazis these days.
Not only did Amber Rudd actually use the words “British jobs for British workers” – a BNP slogan from years ago, as you can see in the image above – but her demand that companies declare the number of migrant workers they employ appears to be a direct lift from Adolf Hitler’s infamous book, Mein Kampf.
Here’s James O’Brien of radio station LBC to explain:
This startling observation stopped James O’Brien in his tracks – the eerie similarities between Amber Rudd’s plan to list foreign workers and a passage in Mein Kampf.
Speaking on his LBC show, he said: “I want to read you something from Amber Rudd’s speech yesterday. ‘For the state must draw a sharp line of distinction between those who, as members of the nation, are the foundation and support of its existence and greatness, and those who are domiciled in the state, simply as earners of their livelihood there.’
“‘Very important that firms declare how much of their workforce is foreign because they’re just domiciled in this state simply as earners of their livelihood there. They’re not members of the nation, they’re not members of the foundation and the support of the nation’s existence and greatness.
“‘You have to have a sharp line of distinction between those who are members of the nation and those who are just domiciled here as earners of their livelihoods.’
“No, that wasn’t from Amber Rudd’s speech yesterday, I’m really sorry, that’s from Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler.
“If you’re going to have a sharp line of distinction between people born here and people who just work here, you’re enacting chapter two of Mein Kempf. Strange times.”
Startlingly, LBC is apparently a right-wing station.
If you’re struggling to find a silver lining in the cloud of fascism that is settling over the UK like a shroud, then take solace in the fact that Ms Rudd made a complete and utter fool of herself very shortly after her speech.
Having demanded that British firms list the number of foreign workers on their books, it turns out she can’t even provide the number of foreign nationals working for the Home Office.
