Sometimes words escape you. Sometimes you read or hear something so outrageous that your mind at first fails to fully comprehend the significance of it. I read in today's Guardian that the head of British far right BNP party, Nick Griffins said that the EU should sink ships carrying immigrants to Europe.
So firing upon innocent people and leaving them to die in open seas is OK. What the hell? They're not "civilised", so they wouldn't be able to fit in with "advanced" societies that produce such morally upstanding individuals as Griffin. And to think this piece of trash was elected the European parliament last month.
"Boats carrying illegal migrants to Europe should be sunk Nick Griffin, the leader of the British National party, said yesterday.
In a provocative intervention, Griffin, elected to the European parliament last month, called on the EU to introduce "very tough" measures to prevent illegal migrants entering Europe from Africa.
"I didn't say anyone should be murdered at sea – I say boats should be sunk, they can throw them a life raft and they can go back to Libya," Griffin said."
