M&S boss and former Tory MP calls out Braverman’s migrant ‘invasion’ rhetoric

A Marks and Spencer boss and former Tory frontbencher has criticized the government’s inflammatory language on immigration, warning that “the public are thirsty for more civil discourse”.

Archie Norman, chairman of the retailer and an MP between 1997 and 2005, said the Conservatives “would never have used that language” during his time in the shadow cabinet under William Hague.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman said Britain was experiencing an “invasion” of migrants trying to reach the country.

Then on Friday Home Office Minister Chris Philp criticized the “cheekiness” of complaints from people coming into the country “illegally” about conditions at the processing centre.

Appearing on Times Radio, Norman Hack said: “We would never have used that language, the reason we wouldn’t is because you’re intruding on very sensitive areas and you’re starting to appeal to people’s basic emotions about race. About immigration, about people coming here from abroad”, and more. : “I think you should be very careful.”

He continued: “I think one of the things we saw in the Liz Truss episode, and probably at the Queen’s funeral, is that the public is thirsty for a more civil kind of discourse, for a more developed discourse.

“When you go into a crisis, you don’t really want this division. You want people willing to come together as a nation, as nations, across party lines.

The comments come amid overcrowding chaos at the Manston holding center in Kent, where at one point up to 4,000 people were held for weeks at a site that holds 1,600 for days at a time.

Meanwhile, Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick was attacked by some residents when he visited Dover with local MP Natalie Elphick, while a woman in the town said her teenage son was assaulted after speaking to the media about what was happening.

Around 40,000 migrants have crossed the Channel to the UK so far this year. But no crossing has been registered by the Defense Ministry for the past three days.
