    What exactly does this mean to the future of England as a whole?

    What did it mean when the Romans came? What about the Saxons? How about the Vikings?

    There'll be fewer white supremacists around?

    What you typed doesn't even make sense. How is immigration shrinking the native population? How could it? Does a native dematerialise when they let an immigrant in?

    I don't get why people still come here. The government has tried it's best to make the country seem more and more unappealing for years. Do they not realise?

    It's a mixture of it being really fucking horrible in some other places, and being quite nice in some places but Britain being a good place to to spend a few years earning a decent stake to set yourself up when you move back.

    @cubbymoore We hand out benefits left right and centre to anyone who comes in. That's why it's so attractive. There's no incentive to work for a lot of these people because they get more in benefits than they would by working in their own country or even here.

    Their benefits go up if they have more children. They get given a bigger house, rent paid for by housing benefit, and also become the parent of a British citizen. The marginal income of having extra children exceeds the marginal cost of raising them. I have to say, a lot of Brits born here have the same outlook as the immigrants I speak of.

    A lot of them will do cash in hand work to supplement their benefit income. From what I've seen, Somalian and Romanian immigrants are the most common to do all of the above. Poles, other African immigrants, sub continental Asian immigrants are usually very hard working and will do a lot of menial jobs to earn a living. Often, menial jobs here pay more than skilled jobs in their homeland.

    The above isn't a biased rant, my parents were immigrants to this country about 35 years ago. Fact is, I've worked in banking. I've spoken to plenty of immigrants, about why they come here, why they stay here, etc etc. I've seen the amounts they get from the government. It's easy to see why they keep coming in, it's a lottery win for them. Although the government is reducing benefits, it's still worth their while to come in, slot into the system and reap the benefits, no pun intended.

    What the long term ramifications of the above are for British society, I'm not sure.

    Precisely!

    Essentially if you and all your relatives are not ginger then you are an immigrant.

    Its probably going to be less traumatic for us than for those we started building our empire from....yeah, I went the colonial route :p

    I'd happily swap the immigrants I've come across with some of our 'indigenous' scum.

    The thing I liked best about the census results was the fact that it was quite clear that, overall, the UK has not been 'overrun', as the fearmongers had been telling us for years - speaking of foreigners as some kind of virus, or pack of animals.

    OHMAGAWD POLISH IS THE SECOND LANGUAGE OF THE UK!!!
    How many speak it?
    Half a million out of 60 million+ BUT LISTEN IT'S THE SECOND LNAGUAGE AahashAHSJHJHJHH BRITAIN IS DOOOOOMEEDDD!!!!!!

    The immigration 'debate' would be much better if it didn't do three things:

    1) Assumed no foreigner ever goes home
    2) Not recognising that Brits go abroad
    3) Misnderstood that it's not necessarily an immigrants fault for EVERYTHING to do with immigration - i.e. that some employers are unscrupulous bastards.

    Also, what about naturalised Brits? Second/third-generation? Etc etc etc

    Even with that, it'd still be a crock.

    The key question is, what is meant by "native English population"?

    When I was an immigrant in england I only hung out ith people of my own nationality (except for all those lovely after works you guys have. You don't even call them after work. You just go to the pub after work) and didn't eat any of your food.

    Except sandwiches and salt & vinegar crisps and fish and chips. Other than that it was spag bol, thai and indian food all the way. Oh wait, fry ups and pub roasts ever now and then.

    I took one of you jobs though.

    AMA!
