Immigration: the far right has it

Some newspapers, at the time of writing, were still referring to “speculation” about the nationality of the Dublin knife assailant – who still hasn’t been identified by the Irish police more than 24 hours after the riots in the city.

The latest report in the Telegraph writes that yesterday’s rioting was stoked up by “unsubstantiated online reports that the man who attacked the children was from Algeria”, and the overnight story in The Times is headed: “How false rumours fuelled a night of chaos”, asserting that “far-right” rioters “whipped up tensions”.

At the time, the police were refusing to disclose either the nationality or the identity of the assailant (always a suspicious sign) but, as it turns out – according to the most recent report in the Mail – the assailant (still unnamed) is a native-born Algerian. Furthermore, he was arrested for knife possession last May – although was never charged – and had previously faced deportation proceedings, before being awarded Irish citizenship about ten years ago.

The “speculation”, therefore, was not wrong – although some of the suggestions that he was an asylum seeker were not correct. Nevertheless, if the details of his background had been known at the time, who is to say whether the violence experienced might have been even more intense.

While the media, with no exceptions that I can see, are in finger-wagging mode about the riots, egged on by prime minister Leo Varadkar who, like Sunak, is the son of an Indian immigrant. Laying into what he called the “’warped” mob, he accused the rioters of bringing “shame on Dublin”, declaring that they were “filled with hate”.

But, like Varadkar, the smugly critical media is missing the point, even the Mail, which at least does make some attempt to explore the background to the riot.

A total of 141,600 immigrants arrived in the Republic in the 12 months to April, it says, noting that this is the highest level since 2007. With previous migration, just over 14 percent of the Republic’s 5.2 million population – 757,000 people – are now non-Irish citizens. Recent polls, we are told, suggest that 75 percent of people believe that the number of immigrants in Ireland is “now too many”.
