/ Time for the Poles from the UK to go home
Can you back that up? With workers striking and Labour making promises on immigration that would make the BNP blush, it seems immigration is a major issue in the UK. Although as I am not a resident of the UK, I could be entirely wrong. Am I?
I cannot back it up with anything other than the fact that I live in the UK, and believe myself to have satisfactory political and social awareness to gauge such things based on individual merit with sufficient detachment and perspective.
Immigration is a HUGE issue in the UK at the moment. But really, when hasn't it been? It's been a hot topic all through the second half of the 20'th Century, and at points it has been much more heated than it is today. Just because it is discussed a lot does not mean it is a serious issue. British people simply love to complain about things which, had they even the slightest bit of world awareness, they should realise as being insignificant. For example, there is a ton of whining about how the current government is corrupt and dishonest and inefficient and blah blah blah. Is it? Yes, just like any other government. Is it also one of the most mobile, democratic, rewarding and transparent governments in the world? Also yes. British people are too busy focusing on how bad they have it and how oppressed and stifled they are, but the plain reality is that things are nowhere near as bad as the complaint level. Immigration will continue to be moaned about, and it will continue to be a non-issue, just as it has always been. This country has gone far too long without an invasion or a REAL oppressive regime that people have gotten soft.
