Why did Tony Blair close down asylum processing in Calais?

3 August 2015

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the migrant crisis in Calais. As the UN calls the UK xenophobic over the Calais crisis, yet another man seeking asylum dies trying to find a new home in Britain. And what is going on with the migrant ‘ghost flights’ that are separating families and destroying lives. Plus why did Labour [Tony Blair] shut down the asylum seeker centre in Calais that could be helping the thousands of people with nowhere to go.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Kinnock Jnr: Labour must force foreign to assimilate

1 December 2016

LABOUR MP Stephen Kinnock called for the party to “move away from multiculturalism” and “stand for one group, the British people” at a meeting on immigration in Parliament.

The controversial comments were made at an event on Tuesday night held by Labour pro-business lobby group Progress as attendees discussed responses to the election of Donald Trump as US president and the result of the EU referendum.

Mr Kinnock told the gathering that Labour had spent too long talking about differences and diversity.

The MP for Aberavon said: “We must move away from multiculturalism and towards assimilation. We must stand for one group, the British people.”

Stand Up to Racism co-convenor Weyman Bennett slammed the comments, saying: “We have to defend multiculturalism because the likes of Trump are attacking that saying that we must have a monocultural society.

“This does not exist anywhere in the world.”

Blairite Stephen Kinnock is the son of ex-right-wing Labour party leader Lord Kinnock. He has a history in the bureaucracies of the European Union and the Big Business World Economic Forum. He played an important role in the failed Blairite coup against elected Labour leader Corbyn.
