Immigration from the European Union could not, of course, be controlled as membership required open borders. That is, perhaps, the one excuse consecutive governments can use in their defense.
Immigration from the Commonwealth is difficult to control as Commonwealth citizens are allowed into Britain – not really an acceptable excuse for consecutive governments as they could have changed the law to prevent this.
Immigration from elsewhere is easily controlled but hasn’t been.
Right. So. Having established consecutive governments are to blame and immigrants are in no way to blame, how is Britain’s infrastructure collapsing? Numbers. It’s as simple as that.
If a countries infrastructure is designed to cater for 1 million people and is not sufficiently invested in, whilst another 1 million people arrive guess what? The infrastructure crumbles.
It isn’t rocket science. Neither is it racist or xenophobic to say it. Britain has far too many people living here for the infrastructure to cope. Immigration is and has always been, a numbers game.
The only argument I hear in favor of immigration is that ‘immigration is a boon for Britain’. Invariably those who say that fail to include the important word – ‘controlled’.
With controls, the doctors and nurses and everyone else who are settled here and benefited Britain would still be here. The hundreds of thousands who have settled here, appreciate being here, treat Britain as their home and with respect, work and pay their taxes would still be here.
With controls, the infrastructure could have been improved to sustain the controlled growing numbers.
If I know that then clearly pretty much every politician in the land knows that, yet none will say it. None will acknowledge the bleedin’ obvious publicly. I can only assume a fear of being tarred as racist and xenophobic prevents them acknowledging what is clearly before them.
Precisely what to do about it becomes irrelevant. If the politicians refuse to acknowledge it then, clearly, they plan to do absolutely nothing about it and the situation will continue to deteriorate until our infrastructure finally collapses – and it’s nearer to doing so than most people like to believe.
Our National Health Service is on the point of collapse purely due to the demands – numbers of people – being made on it.
Schools are turning down children who live two streets away because they are already full.
Our roads are becoming increasingly gridlocked.
The government says we have to concrete over our green spaces to build homes for the rapidly increasing population.
Personally, I’m off to buy some water wings to prepare for Blighty sinking into the sea from the sheer weight of people here.
Oh, and don’t bother those of you who intend to bleat on that I’m racist and xenophobic.
Yeah. Whatever. Go back and read the capitals. It isn’t the fault of immigrants that there are too many of them over here. They’re here so we live with it. We just need to seriously control any more and that isn’t racist, that’s protecting our country and our quality of life.
People are having operations postponed. The odd one dies. Never mind eh? They were old.
People are having to send their children miles away from the nearest school as the closer ones are full.
People are spending so long in traffic jams it’s only a matter of time before someone starves to death in one.
People don’t want our green spaces built on.
They want their country to be theirs in the way they want. That would be a democracy if it really existed.
