James Whale opened his show last night (July 3) with a powerful speech about refugees, saying we should all be ashamed for not helping them.

He told his talkRADIO audience that Britain and its Western allies have played a significant role in creating the carnage in the Middle East, and we must stand up and be counted.

Some of the Middle Eastern dictators deposed in recent years, including Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, faced huge criticism for alleged human rights abuses and a despotic approach to government.

But James believes that, in fact, we have made things worse by ousting them.

"There were happier times for the Iraiqis under Saddam Hussein there were happier times for the Libyans under Gaddafi," James said.

"There is a war which we must bear some responsibility for, going on in the Middle East. We are not doing anything, as far as I can see, in any great shakes to help thousands of people.

"What the hell is wrong with this world? What’s wrong with us? Did our fathers, and our grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers behave like this in the Second World War?"

"We should be ashamed of ourselves that there are families who are struggling to survive, who are being shot in the head by maniacs coming from all sides.

"I think this stinks, and I think we stink, and I think our politicians stink, and I think that everybody in this country that doesn’t do something stinks."
