    But why should someone living here all their live be treated worse than someone who has immigrated here a year ago ?
    Where have I said they should be treated worse? I'm saying that morally speaking they have an equal claim to residency here. That's impractical, and that's why we must place some restrictions on immigration.

    I don't see how any of this is anti-British.

    Also, go away Rakas, I'll politard up this thread if I want.

    Growth forecasts are ridiculous anyway, so much of economic performance is based on the incidence of wholly unpredictable extremities.
