(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
On Question Time last week, Giles Fraser told a funny story which nicely illustrates how batty the whole discussion over immigration has become in the UK.
He said he’d got into a conversation with a taxi driver who told him he was so fed up with the number of foreigners coming to live and work in the UK he was going to move to Spain.
Well just in case anyone thought this kind of absurd opinion was a one-off – have a look at this recent survey by respected polling company ComRes.
When asked if all citizens of other European Union countries should have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom, just 36% of British people agreed.
But when asked whether British people should be free to live and work anywhere in the EU, 52% of British people agreed.
If someone doesn’t bring some common sense to the immigration debate soon, the UK is in danger of becoming a laughing stock.
