Is our Prime Minister a racist?
He seems to have an inbuilt prejudice against people who have fled their own countries due to, in many cases, wars he has supported.
And he is certainly not above misrepresenting the facts.
If any Vox Political reader supports Cameron, perhaps they could explain why that man lied about Jeremy Corbyn, saying the Labour leader had told migrants at the Grande-Synthe Camp near Dunkirk that “they could all come to Britain”?
Corbyn didn’t say that.
He said the UK should do more to process the asylum claims of those with family connections to this country.
As this Guardian article points out, Corbyn made it abundantly clear that “he was not suggesting that all 9,000 people in the French camps at the border should be allowed into the UK”.
So David Cameron is a liar.
And possibly a racist.
David Cameron is facing Labour calls to apologise for calling refugees at a camp in Calais “a bunch of migrants” at Prime Minister’s Questions.
Labour MP Yvette Cooper said it was not “appropriate” or “statesmanlike” for him to use such language about a “complex and sensitive” issue.
Shadow minister Kate Green said it was “offensive, hurtful… and divisive”.
Mr Cameron said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had told the migrants at the camp “they could all come to Britain”.
At the weekend, the Labour leader visited the Grande-Synthe Camp, near Dunkirk, and The Jungle in Calais, where more than 7,000 people are sleeping rough, describing conditions there as “disgraceful”.
