    Every pro-immigration argument is based on feelings rather than reason.

    You'll always notice some very dubious maths deployed by pro-immigration types. Their claim that millions of people coming into the country puts no pressure on infrastructure always delivers a good chuckle.
    Feelings are the new national religion as far as the small, very vocal minority are concerned. To them, feelings are the new truth and truth is the new blasphemy.

    Not overnight, not even in 50 years, but gradually, piece-by-piece. Assimilation to cultural values clearly doesn't work. If it did, migrants wouldn't congregate together, marry within, socialise within and form their own communities detached from the rest of British society.
    Assimilation to cultural values was never intended to work, multiculturalism has been a deliberate policy pursued by all the New Labour Prime Ministers, Major through Cameron.

    It's identity politics and moral relativism on steroids. Foster enough self-loathing within the population - by peddling notions like 'white privilege', whiteness = racism, maleness = sexism, etc. - and you can brainwash them into believing that the intolerable is tolerable in the name of diversity. All contrary opinion must be chastised under a tidal wave of narrative exploitation, notably 'racism', 'xenophobia', 'little England' and 'bigotry.'

    In gist, it's one rule for minority groups and another rule for the rest of the population. It was really hammered home just how moral relativist we've become - for me at least - when Harriet Harman declared, pre-GE, that it would be 'rude' to interfere with a Labour Party even segregated along gender lines to appeal to Muslim voters.

    Harriet Harman...the 'feminist.'

    choose what wisely?

    and yes I am traditionally a labour voter but will not be voting for corbyn due to his sympathy for islam and stupid views on immigration.

    like he wants to take in lots of poor low skilled immigrants but wants to tax high earning companies that are also immigrants.

    so he's gonna drive away the rich immigrants and encourage poor immigrants and screw up the whole country.

    You misunderstand feminism. It used to be about women, but now its all about your medal count in the Oppression Olympics.

    What, the ageing population?

    I presume migrants don't age? What happens when the imported migrant population begins to age? Do we import more migrants? What's the upper limit per year? 1 million? 10 million? Where does it end? Is there an upper limit? What are the ramifications?

    How are we going to deal with an impending crisis in the pension system if we continually expand public services to account for increasing demand? Do you want a pension? At this rate, our generation will be very, very lucky if it gets one.

    China's population is ageing, as is Japan's, yet they are both vehemently opposed to mass immigration or, more accurately, 'multiculturalism.'

    The people who make the "we need more immigrants because we have an ageing population!" argument are essentially advocating a pyramid scheme. Only somebody with a non-existent understanding of basic maths would advocate such trash.

    Your average far-left progressive voter, Ladies and Gentleman. I stopped reading at this point, I refuse to engage with someone who shows complete contempt for democracy.

    Much like many on the far-left, you invariably believe you know best, that everyone else needs to be 'educated', or are merely 'bigots' and 'xenophobes.' The cultural elitism is astounding, particularly for someone who, in another thread, will claim to be speaking on behalf of the very working class population he demeans.
    I am not left-wing, but I am a cultural elitist with a contempt for democracy and the masses.

    It's only going to get more unfeasible to stop freedom of movement. As I've said before, see the fate of the Berlin Wall for an example.

    The Berlin Wall was a little bit more significant than just being a big brick fence.
