most Brits don't want the immigrants here - you're a bit foolish if you think that everyone is a fluffy liberal with open arms!
I wouldn't say most,sure there's a category of poeple who don't welcome new comers.
as an opinion or belief i do respect that,however we can't say to black guy who's his great grand father born in UK or brought as slave he's not welcome as it was said by white guy who his father is Irish.
he's as british as the queen if not more(german ancestor) or prince charles(greek father).
Any race or nation emigrated to other countries have the duty to welcome anybody who decide to come to their country(i'm not talking red carpet,or adverise on TV).
Let me tell you an anecdote,it was journalist asked polish worker representative in UK tv(it happen to be polish): what do you say to british workers who are saying you taking their jobs?
the answer was: I don't see any problem we're whites and christians.
some poeple would welcome a white immigrant but not any other race or religion,that's the problem.
supervised immigration i would say maybe yes,but we can't tell to the asians who were brought to build Britain after the war you're not welcome and go back to your country.
I hope i'm not ranting
