Coffee House Shots – a Spectator podcast: Is Macron weaponising the migrant crisis?


November 27,2021

The migrants that tragically lost their lives in the English Channel has caused Anglo- French relations to further deteriorate.

These people-smuggling gangs are becoming more sophisticated in their operations’ – James Forsyth

Meanwhile, sports shops such as Decathlon on the French coast have stopped selling dinghy boats in an attempt to try and curb the number of people crossing.
Also on the podcast, is the term ‘migrant’ offensive? According to Priti Patel it is.
All to be discussed as Isabel Hardman is joined by Jonathan Miller, a Spectator contributor and James Forsyth.
