UK: Ex-Equalities Chief Admits: ‘I Thought Muslims Would Blend into Britain… I Should Have Known Better’

The former head of Britain’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Trevor Phillips, has admitted he “got almost everything wrong” on Muslim immigration in a damning new report on integration, segregation, and how the followers of Islam are creating “nations within nations” in the West.

  • Isn’t saying that against the law in the UK?

    • You bet, he’ll be arrested soon.

        Remember this from 2009?

        “The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”, according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.

        He said Labour’s relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to “open up the UK to mass migration” but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its “core working class vote”.

        • Yes I do. Our own political elites here in Canada are following the identical recipe.

    Admitting you were wrong is great, now what are you going to to to UN-DO the damage?

    Gosh that’s nice of you Trevor. Enjoy your gold-plated pension while the next generation of Britons suffers the horrible consequences of your idiocy.

    This man must be executed for treason.

    • That may come to pass.

    Nothing, but he may create a hash tag..

    But they said…..
    so how was he to know?

  • David Smith

    Now what was it that twigged you to that?

  • Dana Garcia

    When your job is about diversity, you are required to be stupid: “I should have known better” actually means “I should have known better but I was paid not to notice the bad stuff about Muslims.”

    To quote Hillary, what difference does it make (referencing the apology and mea culpa). It’s like robbing a bank, and then saying, “Darn, I should have known better, but I already spent all the money”.
