Ken Loach criticises the hypocritical treatment of refugees

In an interview with Krzysztof Kwiatkowski, British film director Ken Loach, whose film about immigrants 'It's a free world' is currently showing at Polish cinemas, criticises the British for what he sees as their hypocritical treatment of refugees. "Every day the right-wing newspapers run articles that foment hostility towards newcomers. The publishers accuse them of taking away 'our' privileges, 'our' hospital beds and the desks at 'our' schools. For these journalists, the inference appears to be clear: foreigners should leave. Yet employers with right-wing views like to employ them. This is the hypocrisy of the right - throw them out but exploit them first. The challenge for the left consists in making it clear to the British that the British and the immigrants share the same interests: they want security, social protection, a decent income and to see their dignity respected."
