Yvette’s Refugee Car Crash: Pledge to Foster Syrian Unfulfilled

Remember back during the Labour leadership contest when virtue-signalling Yvette Cooper said she would be prepared to take in a refugee? Nick Ferrari has reminded her of the unfulfilled pledge on LBC. Yvette’s Vicky Pollard-esque replies are painful.

Yvette Cooper: We’ve all got to do our bit to offer sanctuary…

Nick Ferrari: Have you offered sanctuary? Have you taken your refugee in yet?

YC: Well I think we should be offering sanctuary and…

NF: But have you taken yours yet?

YC: Yeah but, I don’t think, this isn’t about, because actually, the people I, we’ve said from the start, look, if people need homes then we should be offering them…

NF: Yes, but have you taken yours in yet?

YC: But, if you listen to what the government said, they said no, they don’t want people to take people into their homes…

NF: Have you taken yours yet, Yvette?

YC: No, and that’s what I’ve said, because the government has said…

NF: So you haven’t taken yours because of what the government has said?

YC: Yeah, the government’s said that’s not what we’re looking for.

NF: (Laughs) So because David Cameron says not to do it, you’re not doing it?

YC: Yeah, but, the government…

That’s the longest “no” Guido’s ever heard…

Quote of the Day

John Curtice on fiscal policy:

“Attitudes to taxation and spending are basically counter-cyclical. If a government comes in and tries to reduce spending and taxation, after a while people will get worried about the state of public services. If a government increases taxation and public spending, after a while they’ll get concerned about increasing taxation…. In as much as there are lots of ideologues out there who think the state should be this proportion of GDP, they’re all wrong. Because the public’s view is counter-cyclical to the recent experience. It’s basically impossible to satisfy the public.”
