From such unpromising material, it seems, is great journalism created - well, after carefully selected “facts” are included, at least. Hitchens claims “we can’t do what we like with this country … We cannot just give it away to complete strangers”, which nobody is proposing. But he does claim that allowing in refugees will destroy our country. And there’s more.
Refugees don’t confront the police of the countries in which they seek sanctuary. They don’t chant orchestrated slogans or lie across the train tracks … Refugees don’t demand or choose their refuge. They ask and they hope”. Don’t these people know their place?
