In today’s Scottish Sun:
There’s nothing worse for a parent than your children seeing people as foreigners. We’re sure that Ed’s Belgian father and Polish mother would agree.
Marion Miliband (née Kozak) was a Polish Jew who survived the Holocaust, which according to the Labour leader’s fellow registered No campaigner Alistair McConnachie never happened. She was also an Eastern European immigrant, who almost certainly wouldn’t have been allowed into Britain if Miliband’s other No-camp allies UKIP had any say in it.
You’d think that if there was anyone in Labour who would be embarrassed to join in the gruesome, pejorative language about “foreigners” that has so hideously disfigured Labour’s anti-independence campaign, it’d be Ed Miliband. But every time it seems like the “internationalist” party can’t sink any lower, the dog-whistle sounds again.
“To me, it seems a dreadful indignity to have a soul controlled by geography.”
George Santayana, 1863-1952
