Damian Green Will Not Face Charges

Iain Dale's Diary: Damian Green Will Not Face Charges

Process is important. But I'm watching Damian Greene right now, for the nth time on BBC News (to make sure I am right), and the SUBJECT here is immigration.

Labour is scared of being *right* on immigration issues simply because of the widespread hatred (and I used the word advisedly) of immigrants among wide swathes of the native populations.

In my opinion, it is immigrant hatred that is the real problem. And the Tories efforts to exploit immigrant hatred in a nice way.

Damian Greene should not have been arrested in Parliament, because of the need for parliamentary privilege. But let's not hide what he was trying to exploit: the racism and xenophobia of far too many British people.
