Piers BS: Paris Immigrant?Riots (154* d) RE: BS: Paris Immigrant?Riots 19 Nov 05

Terry, quite how you can deduce from the fact that fellow human beings are living in poor housing with poor amenities and being intimidated daily by the police, in the most 'civilised' and highly developed part of the world, is an immigration problem, I am unclear. This is of the same school as ridiculous idea that 'poverty is a problem of over-population'. It is sad that you assume workers who were born without their immediate political boundaries don't want to work - and it is certainly not true. A government report a couple of years ago stated that migration has boosted the capitalist economy.

From someone who states he has found out how the world really works we hear the old fallacies of the capitalist media: the dole scrounging immigrants who come to this country to sit on their arses all day, the unquestionable truth that the more people on benefits the poorer that honest worker will be, the moral duty of a man to 'provide' for his family. These lies and that you fail to draw any parrallel between working people who were born within their immediate political boundaries and those that weren't suggest that your knowledge of how the world really works came from The Sun and The Daily Mail, rather than investigation, criticism, debate and analysis.
