Deceptive and simplistic,
This review is from: Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them (Paperback)
This is a pure economic argument with no acknowledgement of the social realities - or even of the economic reality that immigrant workers have only been needed in the UK because the same number of people are paid not to work. The social and political impact (education, crime and even terrorism) are completely ignored except for an implication that anyone who is against immigration is a racist and little-Englander. Facile and juvenile.

Excellent comment regarding crime and education --
Total of 91,234 foreign nationals were arrested last year on suspicion of crimes including murder, burglary and sex offences. In contrast, the figure for 2008 was 51,899 and 81,625 in 2009.
And the true number is likely to be much higher, as only 19 out of the 52 police forces provided the figures, in response to Freedom of Information requests.
For the country's biggest force, the Metropolitan Police, foreign-national arrests more than doubled. Scotland Yard recorded 24,264 in 2008, but last year the total reached 61,870

Mr. S. D. Martin says:
What's more, economic systems are manmade which raises the question why ours - and others - economic models aren't adjusted or changed so we don't need mass immigration (not that I believe we do even as it stands at the moment). There's other nefarious things at play here, and I'd recommend The Milner-Fabian Conspiracy: How an international elite is taking over and destroying Europe, America and the World for an insightful read.
