This is why we threw a pie at Phil Woolas, Minister for Borders and
Immigration yesterday (see here for picture and video http://nobordersmanchester.blogspot.com/2008/10/you-cant-do-this-hes-government.html).
The group then awarded Woolas with their satirical ‘eco-nationalist’ award. Phil Woolas, former environment minister, had previously played out fears that increasing population levels would be a strain on the ecological and economic well-being of the UK.
The ‘overpopulation’ argument has historically been used by global elites to blame vulnerable social groups (the poor, women, the disabled, Jews, immigrants) for economic and ecological crises.
