‘Undermine national homogeneity’ UN migration chief tells EU member states

The European Union must “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its members, the UN’s special representative for migration has said.

Peter Sutherland told peers the ultimate prosperity of most EU states relied on them becoming multicultural.

He also indicated our own government’s immigration policy had no platform in international law.

He was being questioned by the Lords EU home affairs sub-committee which is researching global migration.

Sutherland, who is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and an ex-chairman of oil giant BP, fronts the Global Forum on Migration and Development, which brings together agents of 160 nations to discuss policy ideas.

He told the House of Lords committee that 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”.

An 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.
