Author and Brexiteer Douglas Murray gave an explosive interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer this morning, suggesting the EU's migrant crisis can be traced back to German guilt about the Holocaust.
Murray spoke to Julia about his new book The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam, and gave some forthright opinions on what he described as the "devastating" migrant crisis.
Murray, who publicly supported Brexit ahead of last year's referendum, said Europe has become "a place for the world... but with no particular belief in itself."
He believes Germany is largely responsible for this problem, because the country has spread its post-Nazi guilt to the rest of the EU.
Murray told Julia: "In a city like this one, in London, if you say 'look at our guilt, look at what we did,' you almost immediately get to the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
"This country fought against [Nazism] and destroyed that regime. But there's been a spreading around of German guilt and an absolving of the rest of the world of any blame."
Merkel, he says, was "willing to crash the entire continent for the sake of her own conscience" and suggested many migrants have no right to settle in the EU.
