Blair Slams “Myth” Of Uncontrolled Immigration
Tony Blair has been doing the media rounds again once again showing why old politicians really just need to let go and at least make a pass at a graceful retirement.
John Humphrys the BBC presenter challenged him on his record. He quoted former Blair advisor Andrew Neather who said that there was a deliberate plan to allow mass migration:
“Two and a half million extra workers came to this country and it was your intention to do that”
Mr Blair hit back saying there “wasn’t a diliberate plan.” He blamed the transistion arrangements for Eastern European countries entering the EU which allowed free movement but not the freedom to work, claiming Eastern Europeans would have come here to work “anyway”.

He went on to say that he campaigned specifically in the 2005 General Election campaign specifically on tightening immigration including by introducing ID cards. However, he admitted that Labour did support free movement within the EU although he said were he to be back in office he would like to see rules enforced more “toughly” – somewhat paradoxically as there is no toughness to a porous, open border.
Mr Blair clearly has a deliberate blind spot when it comes to the basic incompatibility of being a member of the EU and enforcing proper border controls and controlling immigration. Immigrants may well originate outside the EU but it is the open borders policy that allows them access to EU countries. The only way to control immigration is via Brexit and this is why the British people overwhelmingly endorsed it at the polls two years ago.
