    Because what you're assuming is that everybody who was born here contributes to society in a positive way. Immigration, and recent immigration, do far more for this countries labour force and society in general, than many of those who were born here. Why should the former be treated any differently to the latter?
    Ok then, but our parents have paid into the system and so would expect the government to look after there kids over someone who has just turned up.

    When or if I have kids I would rather they got priority over an immigrant, and since I have been paying tax and contributing to society my entire life I think the government owes it to me.

    I remember how we all used to watch David Seaman when we were younger when supporting the England team was considered cool. His face and long hair was so orgasmic :rolleyes:

    Aww.

    Because on average, people who were born here will have contributed more (paying taxes whole life, most will have a job). It'd be too awkward to examine each person's contribution separately.

    The BNP,after their reform, have always been about ethnic Britishness rather than whiteness.
    I was under the impression that the most British of ancestors were the Basques, even if they were assumed to be totally wiped out.
