“A bunch of migrants”

David Cameron’s comments describing refugees in Calais as a “bunch of migrants” have been condemned as “vile” and “hypocritical”  – especially coming on Holocaust Memorial Day.

Yvette Cooper, the former shadow Foreign Secretary, later raised a point of order to call on Mr Cameron to withdraw his comment.

Ms Cooper requested that the House of Commons demand the comments be withdrawn but the Speaker, John Bercow, declined and said it was up to Mr Cameron to comment if he chose to.

On Twitter, shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham said the moment showed the Conservative leader’s “mask slipping”.

“He just dismissed desperate people fleeing conflict as a “bunch of migrants” – on Holocaust Memorial Day,” he added.

    Masks have been slipping from every part of the British political class this last couple of years.

    Disgusting Scottish Nationlizt MP says he voted against attacking ISIS so ‘only English and French would be subsquent targets for extremists.’ Claims this is a ‘left wing’ position. Political Tourist joins him alongside Eugene Terre Blanche in ‘socialist’ Scottish micro state for ‘decent’ Boers and Scots. Political Tourist later expelled from said ‘state’ for not being able to speak Gaelic, recite Robert Burns or quote Braveheart. Political Tourist then blames Jews, (Israel), English (Westminster) Cosmopolitans (others) and socilaists (traitors) for ending up as a political imbecile.

    Joseph Harker, writing to today’s Graun, quite correctly denounces Cameron’s disgusting description of migrants in Calais (“a bunch of migrants”), but then goes on to suggest that concern about the Niqab, etc, is also part of the hate-agenda: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jan/27/david-cameron-trickle-down-hate-bunch-of-migrants-calais

    Harker’s piece also dismisses the Trojan Horse affair in Birmingham schools as “insignificant or completely wrong”, citing a “parliamentary committee inquiry (having) ruled (the allegations to be) groundless.

    In fact, the parliamentary committee has been discredited and proved wrong: the Df E immediately rejected its report (http://www.theguardian.com/education/2015/jun/26/education-department-hits-back-at-mps-over-trojan-horse-criticisms), as did local teachers.

    More to the point (as reported here and at at Tendance Coatesy) the NCTL has found most of the allegations to be substantiated and debarred the first Head Teacher to have appeared before it in connection with Trojan Horse, from teaching indefinitely.

    Harker (like several other Graun journalists) is clearly ignorant of the true facts and/or in denial of the facts surrounding Trojan Horse – facts that are well known to teachers and others throughout Birmingham.

    Sadly, Harker’s ignorant response to Cameron’s unpleasant comments, reduces the debate to a zero-sum game: if you reject Cameron’s racism you must, perforce, accept the Islamist agenda.

    No criticism of this from the racist Harry’s place vermin. No surprise there. They love David Cameron.

    Alex Salmond’s equally unpleasant and inappropriate comments in the context of Holocaust memorial; Day:
