Just hours after the terror atrocities in Brussels, the hard right political party UKIP blamed immigration for the attacks. UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, blasted comments made by a UKIP spokesperson who said that 'open borders are putting lives at risk.' Cameron labelled the remark 'inappropriate' on the day of the attacks.
Cameron, along with other critics, was responding to UKIP's assertion that the terror attacks in Brussels 'highlight the dangers of lax immigration controls' and a 'need for the UK to leave the European Union'.
UKIP's defence spokesman, Mike Hookem, released a statement just two hours after the tragedy in Brussels unfolded saying "the horrific act of terrorism witnessed today shows that Schengen free movement and lax border controls are a threat to UK security."
Lets not forger that ever tougher immigration controls lead to greater injustices and increasingly bad behaviour by civil servants. Under pressure from the Government to reduce immigration controls civils servants start saying things that are not true. The increasingly "anti-immigrant" OISC (the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) that appears to have become part of the Governments system of immigration controls has been caught "red handed" providing falsified and fraudulent documentation. The UK surely has a great responsibility to set a good example to the rest of the World.
