During an interview on Irish radio station, RTE Radio One, this morning, He said: “We are better than this, we genuinely are. I’d be happy to put up a Syrian family.
“I’m prepared – I’m lucky, I’ve a place in Kent and a flat in London – me and [partner] Jeanne would be prepared to take three families immediately in our place in Kent and a family in our flat in London, immediately, and put them up until such time as they can get going and get a purchase on their future
“It is a monstrous betrayal of who we are and what we wish to be, we are in a moment that will be discussed and impacted upon in 300 years time, a fundamental shift in the way the world has worked for the last, say, 600 years.
“If there’s a new economy there needs to be a new politics. There isn’t and it’s that failure of new politics that has led to this f***ing disgrace,” he added.
