UK Immigration Issues

As I recently commented in my review of Londonistan, the UK has a horrible immigration problem. Asylum seekers is a phrase used to describe them. Offering folks a better life? Sure. Helping the economy? Uhh OK as long as you are not a lower wage earner who will get screwed by a higher supply of labor. Draining welfare from the Treasury? Yup. Social objectives? What? What could the social objectives be? No new rights were created. Was it all just to spruce up the national class photo?

I'm interested to see what comes of this. This could just be hot air, but it would be a shame to see social objectives of a ruling elite lead to a homegrown terrorist training center, an isolated underclass that leeches yet resents their host country, social welfare problems and loss of national identity.

The best laid plans of mice and men....
