    Billydisco made a very good point. But you're quick to pull out the racist card

    1) It wasn't a good point.
    2) It's not racist it is religious prejudist and there is a big difference.
    3) He has skipped my post and went to reply to others so give me a reason why I shouldn't start to assume that he is Islamophobic?

    And that's your opinion. Isn't democracy a wonderful thing? Where we ALLOW people to have their opinion? Opinions that you would like censored...

    You seem to have a problem with reading. I never said that.

    As the net impact is beneficial, this would suggest that the majority of immigrants have a positive effect. The likelihood that a minority induce this net result is minimal and irrelevant.
    Ah I apologise, I replied quickly thinking it was ridwan.

    My point still stands, where is the evidence the majority of immigrants are beneficial?

    ILP, I find it odd how they're cool with one middle Eastern religion, but not another tbh. Christianity is not British.It's an import.
    They clearly struggle with simple logic. I think that if people bothered opening their eyes a little bit and actually reading, rather than allowing themselves to believe everything they see on television, they might be able to develop some original ideas, which would also provide a more entertaining debate; rather than me facepalming continuously.

    How in hell do you come to that conclusion?
    If every couple has four kids, that doubles their population

    3 million now, (double 1=>) 6 million (double 2=>) 12 million (double 3 =>) 24 million

    (not quite half, but my point remains)

    This is a very dark hour for our party but we cannot and will not allow decent liberal values to be extinguished overnight. Our party will come back. Our party will win again. It will take patience, resilience and grit. But that is what has built our party before - and will rebuild it again.

    Read what I said again? The fact that there is a positive net impact suggests that the majority of immigrants contribute positively. Does this not make sense to you?

    Because we don't have ENOUGH. If we had enough, then medics would not have an almost 100% employability rate. There's a reason why we don't need as many pharmacists these days. We have enough. More than enough even

    Meh, that's how Dubai looks. Most of their population isn't actually Emirati. Does not bother me.
    How can we not have enough...... if the application rate to get in to medical schools is so competitive?

    You said the majority of immigrants benefit the UK. That isn't what your sources prove..... they just show if you add up all contributions and all costs, the contributions are higher.

    Why do you think I told you to tread carefully?

    So again, can you please show me proof the majority of immigrants benefit the UK?
    Well it would be very hard to see the individual effect of immigrants on the UK, so that's why they have been grouped. If you can proof that the majority don't benefit the UK then fine, but you can't.

    "Recent immigrants were 45% less likely to receive state benefits or tax credits than people native to the UK and 3% less likely to live in social housing"

    This show's they are more likely to benefit the UK than our own native citizen's, due to being 45% less likely to be dependent on the state and 3% less likely to take up social housing.

    Yet still, you haven't answered my questions. I will continue to assume you are Islamophobic.

    Group of 100 people. One contributes £1m, the rest cost us £100.

    Net figure is positive, but 99% of them are stealing from this country.

    Get my point?

    And white English non Muslim kids won't have any kids? BTW, the average fertility rate in Pakistan is around ... 3, so it would stand to reason that in the UK, the Pakistani birth rate is less than that. India and Bangladesh have a lower birth rate than that. Google public data is really good for this.

    I didn't say they wouldn't- my point is its not just about immigration, its who you let in and what they do whilst here.

    Well that does imply ENglish non Muslims aren't having kids... Using your maths, when you talk about "If all Muslims had 4 children they would have 50% in three generations", you see that figure, but you don't consider the kids that non Muslims have too...
