    This, by Theresa May’s erstwhile adviser Nick Timothy, is drivel; Merkel is not to blame for the migration crisis - that would be the Syrian civil war & widespread turmoil - & to suggest liberal values have failed is twisted telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/…

    There’s a complete failure to recognise the consequences of the West’s actions, a disregard towards the lives lost as desperate people flee even more desperate places.

    May, thankfully, is better than Timothy

    The actions of Merkel were quite explicitly the response of a leader taking responsibility while hard right govts tried to blame others & avoid their duty

    Liberalism may well have failed in many ways - though I happen to think not - but attacking it when it had quite specifically been excluded is dogmatic & symptomatic of a sympathy towards a culture war

    It’s very easy to blame liberalism & enlightenment values when no one in public life is standing up for them.
