    You only have a problem with non EU immigration, no?
    Personally I have a problem with all mass migration. However the pros of EU immigration is that more European migrants mean less non-eu migrants.

    I think I can speak for the majority of Britons who would prefer European migrants to non-European migrants

    You simply cannot dismiss the entire Scottish ethnic group by saying 'prove it to me'. I am not Russian, I am not English. I am Scottish and I have traced my family tree. You simply have no argument. You don't understand my pride because you are not Scottish, you know you are not.

    And I have nothing to prove to a third worlder who my family and people were kind enough to allow your family to come to my country.
    1st Qoute: I never talked about Russians or English people.:cool:
    2nd Quote: Prove it. Your evidence should date around mid-5th century AD. Do you have that evidence in your "traced" family tree?:rolleyes:
    3rd Quote: My argument is: for you to prove you belong to that ethnic group, you need to have an indisputable evidence of your belonging to such group. If you have not evidence to support your statement,it is not valid.:rolleyes: Sorry, mate.
    4th Quote: Pride?:rolleyes: What has pride to do in you proving you belong to an ethnic group? I don't need to understand "your" pride to know whether or not you belong to that ethnic group. And the understanding of your pride is not limited to those who are Scottish but those who understand what pride means. Anyway, you seem to mistake pride by patriotism.:rolleyes:
    5th Quote: If you have nothing to prove you are admiting you are a liar and I was right. :rolleyes: I'm not a Third Worlder, I was not born there. Another epic fail.:rolleyes:
    6th Quote: Your family and your people?:rofl2: By "people" you may refer to those as intelligent as you. I have a Scottish friend and there is an abismal difference from you to him. Oh, and my family has never been in Scotland. :yawn: Epic fail.
    You still haven't tackled my previous point.:woohoo:

    As I have said I have nothing to prove to you. Scotland is not your homeland or country.

    Ok, that's your opinion. However, the OP has qualms with immigration in general.

      The sort of person who says "Britain is overcrowded, immigration must be stopped" would move onto "We need Lebensraum" if it actually happened.

      How so?
      Food from Africa is largely cheaper to produce and import than a lot of food imported from neighbouring EU countries or food produced here. However, EU tariffs make it too expensive.

      EU immigration is by far preferable because EU immigrants are culturally similar to us, and are basically 'invisible' immigrants, as they do not change the areas they move into.

      Norway has loads of space. Big country, 4,9 million people. lol. Anyway. Norway isn't in the EU, but it's in the EEA and EFTA. So I guess that kind of counts as EU-ish. Wouldn't be very nice if I couldn't move to the UK if I wanted to.

      Though I don't think it's a bad idea with some control.
      Norwegians are always welcome to Britain.

      1st Quote: As you don't wasnt discuss the matter I should think that you can prove what you say, in other words, you are liar, aren't you?:rolleyes:
      2nd Quote: By having a Scottish father with a Mc surname I can say the same. My Scottish friend could help in that sense but it's a matter of common sense.:cool:
      3rd Quote: I ask for an evidence of what you claimed and you were unable to do so. I was been lecturing you I asked proof, you haven't, then what you claim is not at all solid. Sorry,mate.:rolleyes:
      4th Qoute: I'm not muslim and I was not born in a third world country. Why do say thing that aren't true. Are you so scared of asking me? I don't bite.
      You keep talking without proof. And you haven't tackled anything I said to you. What's wrong, my second Scottish friend?
