Poll Context: Angelina Jolie has gone to Europe to lecture Europeans on how to treat refugees and Europe’s border policy. She has run into some resistance from people who are just sick of rich celebrities lecturing ordinary people how to run their lives. “It makes my skin crawl.”
The Hollywood star claimed on Monday there was a “race to the bottom” between European nations to reintroduce border controls as the continent struggles to cope with mass migration.
This from Express Newspaper:
Jolie, the wife of actor Brad Pitt, said: “Fear of uncontrolled migration has eroded public confidence and the ability of Governments and international institutions to control the situation.”
However, furious LBC callers reacted with anger to Jolie’s speech, with one claiming the actress made his skin crawl.
“I cannot stand worthless, useless celebrities. That they have the gall to lecture the ordinary working man about taking in immigrants,” he said.
“It makes my skin crawl.”
Margaret, a caller from south Wales, told host Katie Hopkins: “I think they should shut up and do their dogoody bits behind closed doors.”
She continued: “She has now got airs above her station.”

“I can’t stand the woman and her dogooding.”
Another caller, Dave, from Stockport, said he “could not believe” what Jolie was saying.
“It’s just what the people were looking forward to,” Tory MP Andrew Bridgen told the Daily Mail. “Another American coming over here telling us how to vote in the referendum.”
