So David Miliband is back on our shores…not to lead his party to the great heights many in the BBC hope but to flog a book and at the same time to lecture us on how we must open the borders to all and sundry…he will then fly back to his comfy, metropolitan life and chums in Manhattan to count his money and the luxury he so much deserves [er…remind me what he has ever actually done?]. Emma Barnett was all over him yesterday oozing gleeful joy at his every word and Justin Webb this morning lapping it up and joining in the chorus as Webb told us of the ‘refugees fleeing poverty in search of a better life’. The BBC redefining what a refugee is, saves the UN a bit of time I suppose. Thanks BBC. Economic migrants are not refugees.
Miliband spoke complete rubbish the whole time with two targets in mind, one to fling open our borders and two, to malign and vilify Trump at every turn. Apparently Trump is redefining politics in America, in a bad way…it is now a zero sum game where if America wins everyone else must lose…except that’s not what Trump says, Trump thinks the US is unfairly losing out on trade deals and wants to renegotiate them in order to make them fairer to the US….he isn’t seeking to asset strip any country that wants to trade with the US.
Then Miliband claims the world’s problems are because Trump has withdrawn the US from the world and his responsibilities…er…..North Korea? Iran? Middle East, Syria, Israel? And looking to do deals around the world….how many trips has he made in one year already as he tours the world? It was Obama who withdrew from the world and his responsibilities…abandoning Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria…resulting in the rise of the Islamic State and the refugee crisis in Europe. An Obama who signed up to any old deal that on the face of it looked good but in reality were highly damaging…Iran and Paris Climate agreement spring to mind….done to win the plaudits of his fellow lefty metropolitan elite backers, not done for any genuine beneficial reasons.
Justin Webb made no attempt to challenge Miliband’s claims of course.
Just the usual BBC…bringing on people they know will mouth the correct version of what the world should look like…one coincidentally held by the BBC…oddly enough.
