    Low paid immigration is an expensive option

    The problem with more cheap labour carrying out tasks with insufficient training and investment to back up the staff is it also places many extra burdens on taxpayers. The costs of new schools and hospitals to cope with the sheer number of immigrants are rarely factored in to the equation, giving a fale impression of the true costs of low paid immigration

    A new UK immigration policy to work for all

    There are some terrific new ideas coming out of the Brexit camp on immigration. The vast majority of people support immigration, but not uncontrolled immigration. We should be filled with enthusiasm about a new, fair, and sane immigration agenda for Britain

    A fair immigration system outside the EU

    Our EU-driven immigration policy is fundamentally unfair and discriminatory. Immigrants should be judged on their individual merits, and not treated as superior to others just because they're European. Want fair and sane immigration? Then Brexit is the only answer

    Britain needs to get refugee crisis in perspective

    Between British hysteria and the dysfunctional European Union, there is a desperate need for some proper perspective over the refugee crisis. We have coped with far worse in the past

    Open Borders? Meet national Identity

    Migration crisis? Not good. Rapidly getting worse. Maybe World War Three starts not because one country grabs another’s land, but because in too many places simultaneously international borders just start to melt?

    Can Immigration be Trumped?

    Donald Trump says the answer to the immigration problem is to deport millions and build walls. In Europe the problem is even bigger. How do we have a proper debate on immigration without unleashing the extremists?

    Cock-up in Calais

    The West African migrants congregating in Calais are economic migrants, have no business trying to come into the UK, and should be sent back to their European port of entry. As for others, let's cherry pick the most educated and most economically useful

    The changing face of immigrant Europe

    The chaotic migrant problem in Europe has led to cities like Rome seeing historic sites taken over by gangs, making it both dangerous and unrecognisable. But now Brussels wants to off-load the new migrants to countries like Poland. They won't be happy, but will the EU give them a choice?

    Europe now has open-door immigration

    The Left’s dream of open-door immigration is now effectively being achieved by back-door mass migration across the Med under the moral guise of rescuing victims from unscrupulous traffickers

    Italy’s immigration problem: UK, Europe take note

    Italy is not the kind of country to get all politically correct. But the enormous migration issue from Africa, which the moronic PC political classes refuse to talk about (and the Roma PC-denial matter), is changing Europe, and there are vastly important matters at stake

    Immigration should not be a toxic Issue

    Recent immigration figures show the futility of efforts for a sensible and ethical immigration policy while we are still members of the EU. What principle of justice prioritises Europeans over Indians and Canadians? None. It's just bigotry

    Cameron’s EU speech: Wishful thinking and deception

    Cameron, as we saw in Friday's speech, exemplifies much of what is wrong with British politics: the utter lack of conviction. Knee-jerk reactions and smoke-and-mirrors fool no one. Rather than persisting in the fantasy of a reformed EU, we must Get Britain Out

    Migras: America's immigration crisis

    Robin Mitchinson's Texan alter ego declaims upon America's very own immigration problem, which is not the same as Britain's but rivals it in its importance and sensitivity

    "Bloody Foreigners"

    Britain has often benefited hugely from immigration. But: ‘Give me your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be freeloaders’? Not anymore. That's what Brits really want over the EU, and immigration policy generally

    Labour, Tories scramble to imitate UKIP on immigration

    Labour is now saying things on immigration that the Left branded "fascist" when Margaret Thatcher said them 30 years ago. UKIP has changed the face of the debate and made the unsayable, sayable
