Living in the Shadows...

Such is the vitriol displayed by the voting public in the UK, that it is unlikely that a migration amnesty will ever come into effect in the UK. We are not the only country to propose such a law. The US, the Bush administration proposed such a policy but it was quietly dropped while Yankees in deck chairs guarded the US/Mexican border with rifles. I can easily see the British equivalent massing at the Kent ports with knitting needles, flasks of tea and cricket bats along with a couple of bulldogs.

It is a sad thing to see mickey mouse tests (go on, how many of those can you answer?) or people getting nicked for working in Argos (who wants to work in that zoo - the man should be commended!). After all, just to jump through hoops designed to appease the shires, makes common sense decisions invalid. But then again, when was common sense ever made by those in power?

Quite simply, we are a nation that does not work. We now have less people under sixteen than we have at pensionable age. Simply, we are not producing a sustainable population, let alone a population that can support itself financially. All those pensions and NHS appointments have to get paid, and it will be us that are of taxable age that are going to bear the brunt of this - remember, those oldies are the ones that actually vote. The only reason we have not yet faced a Japanese style population implosion is due to the level of migration into the UK.

If anyone reads this, many will think that my comments are self serving. Hell yeah, as I mentioned previously, I would not be on this planet if it was not for migration. Nor would Uncle Boris Johnson, most of the Royal Family or Churchill to name a few others. Go on, take some time out, watch this video. A lot of you may have no feeling for these guys, but what Berzo said at the end of the video is very true. 'People are staying at home watching TV...not interested...they always say "human rights"...where are the human rights for asylum seekers?' Whether through work, friendship or through just knowing, I meet people who do not have the same red passport that I have. I am one of the lucky ones, I was born at a time when birth meant automatic citizenship (as well as naturalised parents). Today, someone in my position would not be so lucky...
