    Well that's a reasonable point ant-e. Personally I do. We've seen increases in wage disparity, partly due to cheap immigrant workers. We've seen an increase in lack of housing due to to immigrant workers. There's an argument that immigrant workers send some money back home. Therefore keeping it out of the British economy.

    Fair question ant. There's the point that immigration Is unsustainable at current levels. That it puts pressure on the economy in numerous ways.

    That it further burdens the nhs. That it causes wage disparity and the exploitation of the workforce due to cheap labour and it's availability. also that there's little factual proof being offered about precisely what jobs brits 'won't do'.

    That there is extra pressure on the housing market, that job opportunities are reduced.

    That extra burdens are placed on nhs costs through adding more numbers to an already overburdened system from other factors. That schools are having to find extra places for more and more children and having to try to adapt to different cultures.

    Well that's enough for now. But let me end by saying that these problems are not all simply down to immigration, there are other factors. But they're certainly an issue, regardless.

    My simple question to you ant is this. What pro's do you feel immigration specifically brings to the UK, that couldn't be achieved or learnt by non-immigrants, or in the case of culture, couldn't be researched ?

    How's this;

    Controlled Immigration - yes
    Mass uncontrolled immigration - no
    Helping and assisting refugees - yes

    I'd have a system like Australia personally... but be fairer to refugees than they are!

    Locking them up until they can be sent back to where they came from if they are not legitimate refugees.

    Yes, but as long as the prisoners have to do it themselves.
