EU doesn't want UK to 'prosper' says John Caudwell
Philanthropist John Caudwell has told TalKRADIO host Jeremy Kyle that the migrant crisis is being used as a “political football.” He blasted the European Union and argued that Brussels want Britain to have “a bloody nose.” Mr Caudwell stressed that the EU want to cause problems for Britain “Because if we prosper too much the EU becomes in further potential to collapse.”
Mr Caudwell told TalkRADIO: “The EU, in general, want Britain to have a bloody nose.
“Because if we prosper too much the EU becomes in further potential to collapse.
“They don’t want us to prosper because it’ll set the wrong signal to other countries that might be slightly EU sceptic.
“So it is a political football.”

Dr Shola told the senior Tory MP: “Let me tell you that you’re gaslighting the listeners by suggesting that this government is trying to deal with the problem of traffickers by actually demonising the people who have been oppressed by traffickers.”
Ms Leadsom fired back: “Shola I won’t have you accuse me of lying which is what you are accusing me of.”
“It is a lie,” blasted Dr Shola.
Ms Leadsom snapped: “No! I am not lying.”

The Tory MP added: “What this Government is trying to do is to prevent illegal movement to this country.”
Dr Shola argued: “The Government is not doing that!
“The Government is dehumanising refugees, demonising, the language they use…”
She added: “Each time we talk about migrant crossing, it’s always to paint them looking like people who actually you should have gone to a different country before you came to us.”
