Kippers still gonna 'kip. Dave n' Ed still gonna play along. :-(
So here's a free bump to help you out.
The people who make a net contribution are the ones who are legally entitled to work here with no hassle, so if we opened that up to everyone they'd be no financial burden on the state for people immigrating here.
(There's another argument that we should open the borders to everyone because borders are an arbitrary concept and the earth belongs to the people who live there equally, but never mind about that)
Whilst immigrants may make a net contribution it is the changing face of Britain that is the bone of contention for many.
For fear of being labelled racist many are afraid to speak up in support of the landscape of Britain where people spoke the same language and shared common traditions.
Other cultures have benefits such as food, music etc but this has come at the expense of our own culture.
londons not bothered and it has the most immigration, its a bigger issue in places that hardly see any immigration, because they're so racist
Culture changes all the time - you'd find living in this country 50, 100, 200, 500 years ago or whatever, radically different to how it is now in every aspect of culture you'd care to name.
regardless of whether we opened up the borders or shut them down completely.
(not necessarily anything to do with racism, just ignorance)
It's the third highest rated comment on the article, although admittedly their wasn't much quality to pick from.
