LBC caller says we should 'let children drown' in the English channel

It is safe to say, he does not like migrants

During a recent phone-in show on LBC, Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson was unfortunate enough to speak to medically retired HGV driver Andy.

Discussing the increase in number of migrants attempting to cross the Channel over the Christmas period, Andy lamented the state of Britain under Tory austerity, with many families living in or on the edge of poverty.

He argued that the UK should be more concerned about taking care of its own, but that argument took a shocking turn when it came to the plight of migrants.

Tom Watson: "You've got a boat load of kids sinking in the English Channel, what would you do with them?"

Andy: "I'd let them sink."

Tom Watson: "So you would let children drown in the English Channel?"

Andy: "Yep."

Tom Watson: "How many?"

Andy: "As many as it takes to stop them."

Tom Watson: "You leave me worried for the future of humanity with views like that."

Couldn't agree more Tom.
