“The EU should “do its best to
undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, the UN’s special
representative for migration has said.
Peter Sutherland told peers the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural.
He also suggested the UK government’s immigration policy had no basis in international law.
He was being quizzed by the Lords EU home affairs sub-committee which is investigating global migration.
Mr Sutherland, who is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former chairman of oil giant BP, heads the
Global Forum on Migration and Development
, which brings together representatives of 160 nations to share policy ideas.
He told the House of Lords committee migration was a
“crucial dynamic for economic growth” in some EU nations “however
difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states”.
ageing or declining native population in countries like Germany or
southern EU states was the “key argument and, I hesitate to the use word
because people have attacked it, for the development of multicultural
states”, he added.
“It’s impossible to consider that the degree
of homogeneity which is implied by the other argument can survive
because states have to become more open states, in terms of the people
who inhabit them. Just as the United Kingdom has demonstrated.”
And that is the dream utopia that they have for us
