The migrant plague.

Five Chinese Crackers does his usual fine job of eviscerating the lies and deceptions on the front page of today's Daily Express. How very fitting that a scare story about immigration has at long last knocked Madeleine McCann from her perch: the fear of the unknown and foreign replacing the capitalising on err, the fear of the unknown and foreign.

While reading the obituary of Brigadier General Paul Tibbets, the man who piloted the Enola Gay, I was reminded of Wilfred Burchett and his exposing of the radiation poisoning effects of nuclear fallout on those who survived the initial dropping of the atomic bomb. His account appeared in the Express, and so embarrassed the Americans that General MacArthur personally barred him from Japan. You somehow can't imagine such a story ever leading the front page of the Express again.

Unless of course somehow immigrants were to blame.
