Tony Blair's racism
"While he fully accepted immigration was "a substantial issue", he said it had become the "primary consideration" and suggested the public were more concerned about arrivals from outside the EU."
So Blair's dog-whistle message is "Europeans are fine, it's those pesky non-white people you should be worried about".

No. He's accusing the ignorant chavs that make up the British public, who voted for brexit, and around 80% of whom want less immigration of being racists.
He's completely missed the point living in his multimillionaire bubble.
Detailed opinion polls show that nearly all the objection to immigration is about low skilled and unskilled immigration, and even visible ethnic minorities want less of it.
The fact is if you are a brickie, a plasterer, a plumber, hairdresser or cleaner, you have seen your wages fall since 2004, because of being undercut by immigrants from eastern Europe.

Why does anyone listen to this moron anyway? He should be reminded daily of his Iraq misadventure that has killed and disfigured so many British soldiers and Iraqis.

Ditto to George W Bush. The fact that he showed up at the inauguration DRUNK and that he and Cheney were cracking jokes is RIDICULOUS. He's a big reason that Trump has a huge mess to clean up.
Funny how liberals (not you but some who shall remain nameless) forget that and actually turning a blind eye to that administration while attacking the current administration. Hypocrites.
