Many European leaders are “giving away” the continent to anyone who comes here, British journalist Douglas Murray, author of “The Strange Death of Europe,” told Hungarian public news channel M1.
Murray said that many European politicians are cowards, who couldn’t resist the opinion of the minority – a striking example of Angela Merkel and her response to the migration crisis. He stressed that Europeans shouldn’t be hostile towards every migrant or refugee, but the borders shouldn’t disappear, we shouldn’t give everyone the right to make Europe their home.
The author pointed out that mainstream media in – for example – Germany or Sweden ignores the negative side of immigration, but the public opinion has been changing, because the people believe what they see and experience, not what they read in the media.
Murray stressed that he doesn’t think there is some grand conspiracy behind migration.
Douglas Murray speaks at the Future of Europe conference in Budapest on Wednesday.
