Australia’s Foreign Minister Bob Carr has gotten international attention after telling the public exactly how he feels about recently-deceased leader Margaret Thatcher. Carr says that Thatcher made ”unabashedly racist” remarks the last time they met. She warned him to “not let the immigrants” take over his country.
“I recall one conversation I had with her in her retirement where she said something that was unabashedly racist,” he said on ABC News.
”She warned Australia – talking to me with Helena [his wife, who is of Malaysian origin] standing not far away – against Asian immigration, saying that if we allowed too much of it we’d see the natives of the land, the European settlers, overtaken by migrants.
