Book Description

15 Mar 2003
Political correctness has hi-jacked our freedom to discuss one of the burning issues of the day. This book will inevitably be condemned by the politically-correct, few of whom will actually bother to read it. They are determined to turn Britain into unrecognisable regions of a multicultural amorphous European Union. For them, facts and other people's opinions merely get in the way. Which is precisely why we urgently need a full, open and -- if necessary -- controversial debate on immigration. This book looks at the facts and faces up squarely to many of the consequences of large-scale immigration and the urgent decisions Britain needs to make. By far the most important is to recover control of our own borders from the EU. The Foreign Secretary's announcement that Britain will allow all 75 million new so-called citizens of the EU to come to the UK immediately their countries become full members in 2004 astonished and horrified millions of viewers. It was a candid!
admission that immigration is out of control. Nine out of ten immigrants reaching the UK today end up staying here. In social terms, immigration is now causing serious upheaval that can only get worse. In political terms, immigration is such a hot potato Tony Blair and his ministers stare at this oncoming runaway truck like rabbits caught in the headlights. Which is why immigration, and the consequences of immigration, are in crisis in Britain today. Not that these are easy issues to resolve. This crisis is not centred on those who have arrived and settled. It is centred on those still coming, the sheers numbers in which they are coming, the illegal means they use to enter, the effect they have on local communities expected to accommodate them, and the short-term draining impact they are having on the finite resources of the UK. So here are the roots of our problem with immigration -- open doors, free movement, racial discrimination against the indigenous population, and the suppression of free speech. Even worse, the UK's current problems with immigration stem directly and almost entirely from our being members of the EU.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine coverage of important issue 15 July 2003
Ashley Mote has written a very useful book on immigration. He notes that Jack Straw says that all 75 million new EU citizens from Eastern Europe can work in Britain from January. As unemployment there averages 16%, and wages are 12% of ours, many may accept his generous invitation!

But Britain is already overcrowded, especially in the South East. Our 60 million people are 641 to a square mile, compared with 269 in France and 76 in the USA.
By the Single European Act, signed by Thatcher, Britain had to end its border controls with the EU. We have now been accepting about 250,000 immigrants a year since 1997, yet are not short of labour: we have four million unemployed. Dependence on immigration deters education, depresses wages, and aids the employer.
The Civitas report, Do we need mass immigration?, observed, “Current immigration increases inequalities in the UK, because it causes a massive redistribution of wealth from those who compete with immigrants in the labour market – who tend to be poor, and suffer low wages – to those who employ them who tend to be ‘rich’.”
As an AEU representative said in 1947 of similar debates, “We resent also the decisions made in our name and without our agreement on ‘displaced persons’, and we reject the philosophy that if a job is so badly paid that no British worker will work at it, then the only alternative is foreign labour. We must fight for improved conditions in these industries.”
The UN High Commission for Refugees noted in 2002 that more asylum seekers tried for Britain than for any other country in the Western world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading 12 Jan 2004
An excellent and well researched book which exposes the abuse of our immigration and asylum system, and how powerless the government is to do anything about it. Recommended reading for everyone, this book tells it as it is, with no spin or lies like what we get from the weak politicians.

I started reading this book but I just thought that if I wanted to read this kind of drivel, I could simply visit The Mail's website and read the comments. The book lacks credibility in my view. Anyway, if you like reading stereotypes and cherry-picked data to shock you, then get this book and stay misled.

Time to stop the flow of immigration into our country !! We all now the truth and we know how this country has become overcrowded.

Well worth reading, the conclusions are unlikely to appeal to politicians looking for an easy life! This whole problem is of their making!.
