Seven in 10 Britons believe there are too many immigrants in the country, an Ipsos Mori poll showed.Three in four agreed that immigration has placed too much pressure on public services while three in five agreed that it had made it harder for Britons to get jobs.Just one in four thought immigration had been good for the economy, the survey of 1,000 people showed.
Left-wingers will tell me, they bring employment. Er, no! They tend to employ other Asians who are married off to various family members. I have experience of some elderly women who have been here for 40 years and can speak no more than six words of English.
The other argument we hear is that there has been immigration into Scotland for a thousand years. Well, yes, but from Europe, where the people tend to have a similar culture to us. Where have you been in Europe that feels distinctly different from the UK, apart from the obvious differences like language. There is a current case before the courts of a woman who is being barred from bringing her husband over from India, because he comes from a small village, (a cousin) and can't speak English. She says the ruling is against her human rights. Well, IMO, it's against our human rights to let her husband in, if he doesn't want to integrate in this country. She could always go over and join him in India!
As some of you know, I am hoping to emigrate to Spain at some point, (thanks anonymous, it will be good riddance). Now I don't know whether or not it will work out. But, I do know one thing it won't be because I'm not willing to integrate into Spanish society. I'm brushing up my Spanish which I learnt some years ago and fully expect to take part in Spanish traditions, like fiestas. I don't agree totally with bull fighting, but that's got fuck all to do with me, as is the case with the Roman Catholic religion which I fundamentally disagree with because I don't like any religion. But, religion is in many ways the thing that makes Spain such an attractive country, so my lips will be sealed!
For too long in this country, immigration has been one of the 'elephants in the room'. It's time we brought it out in the open and at least discussed it without us being labelled as 'racists' for doing so.
