So, Yvette Cooper-Balls, with an eye to the Labour vote, graciously admits "We did get things wrong on immigration", as though Labour had made an unfortunate choice of living room wallpaper, or bought the wrong dishwasher.
Yvette, sweetie, Labour's malign and deliberate open-door policy on immigration has trashed the nation's educational standards, will cost hundreds of billions in additional health, social care, policing, criminal justice, housing and social infrastructure costs, has tested the British virtue of tolerance to the limits, has fostered terrorism, increased risk, encouraged anti-British bigotry, eroded the social fabric, made ghettos out of some of our cities and has caused a level of cultural stress that has left the British nation with real and diagnosed PTSD-like symptoms. Labour's policy was a violent shock, an assault, an abuse and a violation of the people of this nation.
But let's be clear. None of the above was the fault of the immigrants who came here - they just reacted, as we would, to an opportunity that was offered by Labour. No, those who would seek to target anger against immigrants or disguise their racism as righteous ire are stupidly, wantonly wrong and mistaken and are the allies, not the foes, of Labour. Every ounce, every dram and scruple of the blame for this violation, this assault, against the British people lies unequivocally with the Labour Party, not with the immigrants.
That Cooper-Balls has the gall to seek to treat this as something she can apologise for speaks volumes about the contempt in which her political cabal holds the rest of us. Right now, I really would like to see that bloody woman and her loathsome spouse pay the proper price for their crimes.
