James picks out alternative 'targets' that right-wing media are focusing on
James picks out alternative "targets" that right-wing media are focusing on instead of the record net migration levels they have covered in the past.
Questioning the next move of right-wing newspapers, James exclaimed: “They find another target.”
It comes as net migration figures have hit record levels of 606,000, which Rishi Sunak described as "too high".
He hypothesised as to what the next target would entail, stating: “So don’t be surprised if you hear people encouraging you to hate on unemployed, people on sickness benefit, or disability benefit, people who can’t work, and benefit claimants who can’t seek work.”
At the “front of the queue” to be targeted are the eco-protesters according to James, who outraged by this stated: “The idea that throwing a little bit of paint around at the Chelsea Flower Show, is national front page news is objectively ridiculous right?
“Objectively ridiculous, in a country with a cost of living crisis, energy bills still absolutely sky high, and massive problems with inflation.”
The IMF anticipated that the UK economy would curtail recession this year, as it expects the UK to grow by 0.4% in 2023, whereas last month it forecast the economy would contract by 0.3%.

James praised Jeremy Hunt for rectifying the economic damage Kwasi Karteng and Liz Truss left in their wake, however, he also highlighted the “current state of the UK” and questioned why the “biggest story in town is a few environmental protesters throwing some paint around at the Chelsea Flower Show”.
Continuing, James focused his frustration on the Daily Mail, stating: “The same people that persuaded us to vote for Brexit or persuaded us that immigration was the roots of all evil.
“Who are they going to go after next? Eco protestors and people on disability benefits.”
Concluding, James affirmed his beliefs by asserting: “If it’s Brexit related, I haven’t got a prediction wrong yet!”
