Certainly does not help, I think it is unfair to actually hold the EU's feet to the fire on this particular one.

There is not any evidence to support your views.
The UK is not governed by any EU refugee quotas, once again it is just another brexit myth grasped by the ignorant.

Ahem.

I think a more rigorous reading of Richard's post might be in order.

He believes the same as you and I. E.g Our Nige's spurious migrant poster campaign etc influenced the Brexit vote.

I grew up with the IRA bombing London and other English towns. I wonder what the BE discussion would have been like then?

I was living in the East End during part of this time, difficult to believe that there the would have been apologists, but sure there would have been, you could of course go back further and ask about Battle of Cable Street etc.
