Douglas Murray: The ‘Goodness’ of Migrants: When Feelings Trump Facts

Douglas Murray is very good at explaining the PC pro-migrant ideology in Britain and why it completely fails to reflect the real truth on the ground – that many of the migrants the British want to welcome into their country are not only illegal economic ones, but also include individuals who want to wreak carnage on non-Muslim Britains if allowed in. 

  • No one asked what in the hearts of the migrants of Calais is so very “good”, and what “goodness” is so lacking in the hearts of the British people that it needs topping-up from the camps of Calais.
  • It is worth reflecting on just two recent terrorist plots, by people who did not bring only “goodness” when they came from Calais.
  • The question fails to get asked: “What exactly did we gain from their presence in our country? And what exactly was the ‘goodness’ that you think they brought?”

Recently on the BBC’s main political discussion programme, Question Time, the panel were asked about immigration and, as so often in the British immigration debate, the subject of the situation in Calais, France came up. Over recent years Calais has repeatedly become the place for illegal camps of illegal migrants to congregate, in the hope of moving from France to the UK. Some of these migrants attack lorries and disable vehicles to try to climb aboard them. Others attempt other ways to get through the Channel Tunnel, either on a vehicle or on foot.
