    I agree to an extent, although you have to make sure you don't pander to bigots. We have a high population density - it's pointless to talk about empty regions like the highlands, migrants come to the urban parts of the south (london, bristol) and the already very crowded northern corridor liverpool-manchester-leeds-bradford, and these areas are very crowded at the moment. And it can't continue to rise and rise and rise.

    You're average immigrant comes to the UK, gets a job, pays his taxes and funds public services just like any other British citizen. More people, more money, more hospitals and schools.
    Migrants aren't moving to Shropshire, or Aberdeenshire. They move to already very crowded urban areas. I live near Leeds and parts of Leeds are complete gridlock, a continually rising population isn't remotely desirable in crowded urban areas where housing shortages already exist and public services are increasingly overstretched. My mum works in a school in inner-city Leeds that is finding it hugely difficult to deal with teaching kids in 20 different languages, and there is a similar overstrectch in other areas of the public sector.

    What about our Public Services? NHS can't cope with the demand? Schools not able to cope. We don't have enough houses, money to fund benefits, transport services are packed and cant cope with demand -- Sure there are still some fields left for the taking, but not enough money or services to provide for everyone unfortunately.
    J.O.B.S. That's what is required to create.:cool:

    Kick all leachers out from other countries that are claiming benefits. These will consist of mainly muslims and other middle east degenerates.

    Next sort out the eastern european leachers.

    Bingo, problem sorted.

    Slightly off topic. Just out of interest, if the BNP got into power what would they do apart from stopping immigration? A question the supporters like to ignore. I wonder why?

    There are 60,776,238 people in 244,820,000,000 square metres.

    That is, there are 3996 square metres of land per person in the UK. We are not over-crowded.

    Because that's all BNP supporters care about.


    There's still plenty of space in Scotland if Britain becomes more crowded at least.

    What has the BNP got to do with anything? the huge population increases that labour's immigration policies yielded are completely unsustainable in the long-term. It has nothing to do with race, religion or anything of that nature.

    I think non EU-Immigration should be completely banned.
    :sigh:

    Non EU immigration is already facing heavy restrictions as it is, if you do have an issue with immigration, arguing with what you are stating is foolery.

    Migrants aren't moving to Scotland, there is no incentive, they move to already crowded urban areas like Leeds, London, Reading, Manchester and so on. Massive scale mass-immigration is a terrible idea, it isn't sustainable in the long term.

    I live in Leeds. The reason there are areas of complete gridlock is because of an abysmally underfunded public transport. We are the largest city in Europe without a rapid transport system. Not to mention how expensive, unreliable and generally piss poor the bus service is in the city. That's really not the fault of immigrants.

    I know, hence why I said slightly off topic. Since the BNP only care about immigration and this thread is about immigration I just thought somebody could answer my question.

    I know, but if the problem gets too serious they can move there.


    Either way, there should be a one child policy (which won't happen, but still) until the old generation die off, then there will be room for more people.

    I'm not blaiming immigrants for anything. It is looking very unlikely that huge housing shortages will be met, public services are overstretched, Britain has an extensive welfare state, and we have a high population density (particualrly England where pretty much every migrant heads - England has a higher population density than the Netherlands). It is clear to anybody that allowing large-scale mass (i.e. hundreds of thousands per annum) immigration is a bad idea, our resources are finite, and it's important that greenbelts and green land is conserved.

    So you would a.) force people to go to Scotland b.) force people to not have anymore kids. That sounds a much more desirable alternative to simply introducing a sensible, measured, immigration policy along the lines of pretty much every other industrialised nation on the planet.

    I guess you could deport me as I don't do ****. Only bad thing is I only speak English and hence will be called a foreigner in my 'native' country. Jolly good.
    This

    ...
    ....

    If this is a thread to hint someone to say 'lets get them foreigners out', then hear me out.

    Im British, but indian. Born here, went to school here, looking to go to uni here and obviously looking to work here.

    At the same time, i witness (as Nick Griffin would put it) 'native indigenous british people' slacking off with no intentions of finding a respected career and benefiting the economy. And before any folks start saying that im being racist towards White people, then let me quote, that this is obviously true for only a minority of native brits and also true in the case for migrants.

    Nonetheless, the thing that annoys me is the people who are constantly egging on that 'there's too many foreigners' or 'migrants have ruined this country' blah blah blah, are the ones who have no intention of studying, getting work and benefiting the economy whatsoever.

    At the end of the day, yes i may be a minority, but i was born here, im BRITISH and proud of it! I respect British culture and embrace it, so can I stay....pwetty pwetty please?

    No. If you have moved here from another country and have been out of work for a certain period of time and their only source of income is from benefits and the government then these people should have no rights to live here and be deported.
