actually to be serious.... I work in the "space" industry. You know, how your phone knows where you are, your little garmin knows where you are? How many hundreds of football pitches of the Amazon we've razed in a day? How shite the ice-caps are looking? That sort of shit. Satellites. Amazing things, give you sport and everything.

Anyway, I digress - the company, based in Guildford, Surrah! The workforce totals about 500 give or take. About 200-300 of those are "immigrants". What about that? I've never seen so many people with an MSC or PHD or even the whole fucking hog level Professor anywhere I work and yet a huge percentage of people are these famed immigrants. Working hard. Towards a better Britain. A better Europe. You fucking twats - educate yourself. Everyone else, as you were.

STOP BUYING THE FUCKING MIRROR - WHY DO YOU GET A VOTE?

Thank you Roberto but under a points system like in Australia all those people would probably still get into the country, all it would mean is that unqualified, unskilled labour wouldn't just be able to walk straight into the country unchecked, that's all most people want, that's why we need a Conservative government rather than Labour or SNP who'll basically let anyone in, this is only a small country and we don't have the infrastructure to deal with mass immigration on the scale we have had it.
And I dont buy that fucking lefty rag the mirror, I get most of my news online these days thank you

Matt whether you like it or not mass immigration will be a necessity at some point in the future.

The ageing population demands it. Old people aren't dying quick enough after they retire. We need somebody to pay for the additional pension and healthcare cost. Quite simply there aren't enough young British people to pay the taxes required. Hence we'll import in loads of young healthy foreigners to earn money, pay tax and give older British people a decent retirement.

Older people not dying are creating a housing shortage - we'll need loads of foreigners to build new homes.
Older people not dying are creating a shortage of nurses, doctors and care workers - we'll need loads of foreigners to wipe our backsides when we're old and demented. I want a Filipino one.

The real question on immigration is whether to import these people as equals or whether to import them as low paid slaves. Currently we do the latter and I suspect everybody secretly wants to keep it that way.

All of the developed world will have (or are having) the same aging issues, and even many Emerging markets are having the same issues, so there will not doubt actually be lot of competition for immigrants at some point in the future.

For now, the number of immigrants into London (for example) is creating a housing shortage - everyone wants to be in London because it is a vibrant and functioning economy. And immigrants work hard and most pay their taxes, and also do the jobs the Brits dont want to do. So they should be welcome, though it would be wrong to say that is not causing problems (eg the housing shortage). Let's imagine the Eurozone economy becomes even weaker (personally I think it will). There will be even greater numbers of people wanting to work here. That will be a problem so you cant just allow totally free access to labour markets here. Think the truth is somewhere in between what people are thinking above.

What we dont need is a politician like Farage preying on people's fears and stirring up hatred towards immigrants. The guy is dangerous.

Looks good mate

the tories inherited a bankrupt state and began the task of turning it around - the UK electorate will not, therefore, now kick them out and put Labour back in, so it can only be a Lib_Con outcome.

I wish you were right Chromo....but how do you reconcile this with the polls saying a Labour + SNP coalition are the most likely outcome?

Sympathise with Matt's views on Europe - that free trade is what we really want, not having to abide by broader rules set by Brussels (or the likes of Germany). The problem with the Eurozone is that it is angling for further integration at a time when populations all across Europe are becoming increasingly hostile to the idea. I spoke to a Euro official a few months back who basically said oh no we shouldnt allow referendums because people are too stupid to vote in favour of a tightly knit Europe. Not exactly democracy is it. These Eurocrats are also completely oblivious that the Eurozone was the most ill-conceived economic project of the modern era (Greece et al were allowed in despite only satisfying the criteria in thr short run). Yes give us free trade, but the Eurozone is exactly what William Hague called it - a burning house without windows or doors. Seems that keeping our relationship with Europe as one based on looser integration is only bringing us into conflict with it.

My tactic to keep them interested will be to throw in the odd tune like Beyonce (or the Madonna above)... Which frankly i quite like. And then follow with Thugfuckers latest lol.

The next government will be Tory / Lib Dem coalition.

Not even the average British electorate is that fucking stupid.


I wouldn't fucking bet on it.

Agree with Eric... The polls are a long way from indicating Tories/Lib Dem coalition.... According to most SNP/Labour is the only workable coalition. Remember proportion of nationwide votes does not lead to same proportion of seats... And the SNP look like winning 40 odd seats in Scotland

I think the coalition works well. It's not ideal for either of them but it is good for the general public.

Glad to see most on here not falling for the no austerity bullshit.

A vote for the labour is a vote for the SNP - parliament run by a party agitating to leave the Union AND an end to austerity.... Disaster - hope the electorate have a good think before opting for that.
