    Please tell me racists.. who do you think is going to take care of your elderly relatives in the care homes when they are old?
    Who's going to work in our factories?
    Who's going to pick our strawberries?
    Not those unemployables.

    "The UK unemployment rate (the proportion of the economically active population who are unemployed) was 5% in July 2016-September 2016.

    The unemployment rate was 5% for white people compared to 9% for people from a BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) background, although the rate varied between different ethnic minority groups."

    Was your Thai wife sat next to you as you typed that?
    No she is in Thailand and we aren't married so you are wrong on all counts. If that is the most entertaining commentary you can come up with, don't give up your day job.

    Well us Americans are also very proud of our "New" upstanding citizens.

    You know Dil, Thais do not think highly of African/Indian folks. They even have a few slang/derogatory names they use.

    You would do well looking after old grannies in a few years, would be a good chance keep your count up having all your prospects under one roof, save on the flights.

    Better still who is going to look after all those migrants when they get old, to say nothing of their parents that they eventually bring over? They are not going to magically disappear back to their country of origin. Then you bring more migrants in to look after them ad infinitum. An unsustainable model, economically socially and ecologically, that will eventually backfire.
    It is not racist to want a countries future to be sustainable. The problem with having a proper debate is always stifled by the PC brigade bringing out the tired old racist label.
    At a population growth of 7% per annum in a country with a population of 60 million people, that same country would have a population of over 118 million people in only 10 years. Effectively a doubling of the population. Whilst governments like this as a lazy way to increase GDP to make them look good. GDP per capita actually decreases which is not good.

    ^ Absolutely right. The model is not sustainable. The US is feeling this crunch now. The immigrants have no "Income" requirement" as part of staying and no limitations. Get one family member over and then slowly bring everybody else. Its the "Come on over" principle. This is a HUGE issue and an even larger debate.

    But to your point Hugh Cow, it does get very old to hear the "Racist" card pulled anytime this hits the discussion table. Its not about racism at all.

    The UK is not the same as the US in that regard (except migrants from EU countries). https://teakdoor.com/thai-visas-and-v...ment-visa.html

    Freedom is completely subjective and a very muddy topic.....
