I wanted to do a long post this morning about the government boldly acting on perceptions ahead of problems (including such aspects as that wonderfully high percentage of people who confuse asylum with immigration), but I just don’t have it in me today. Page 3 has sucked all the fun out of it.
Today, Nicola T (22, from Croydon) backs Labour’s tough stance on immigration – as long as those in real need are not targeted. She says: “We must be sure people in need of genuine help are not turned away. That would go against everything that Britain stands for.”
Yes. Which is why the Tories – and now Labour – are so keen to emulate the Australians.
Oh, I do apologise. I appear to have deliberately blurred the line between asylum and immigration. You see how easily these things can happen?
