Colonel Gaddafi demanded £4.1bn a year from the EU to stop illegal immigration



Wednesday September 1,2010
By Macer Hall, Political Editor

MAVERICK Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi provoked outrage last night by demanding £4.1billion a year from the EU to stop illegal immigration “turning Europe black”.

Colonel Gaddafi, in a speech in Italy, claimed his country needed the money for security measures to stop thousands of Africans heading across the Mediterranean.

Gaddafi’s remarks, dismissed as blackmail last night, came on the last day of a two-day visit to Italy which had already sparked controversy when he urged all Europeans to convert to Islam and lectured 200 models and actresses on the Muslim faith.

In his farewell speech in Rome, the 67-year-old dictator said: “Italy needs to convince her European allies to accept this Libyan proposal: five billion euros to Libya to stop illegal immigration. Europe runs the risk of turning black from illegal immigration, it could turn into Africa.

Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.
