"Your strategy of stopping immigration, or discriminating against immigrants"

er - excuse me, where did that come from except from your determination to construe the exact opposite of your teenage rantings to the points made by others?

I don't have a strategy of stopping immigration, nor of discriminating against immigrants. What I have is a realisation that what we are doing now is being clearly shown not to work, therefore if we are to expect a different result we need to do something differently from now.

Most immigrants intending to go to another country I am sure would hope that they would be able to get a job - the reality is not that, in more cases than is reasonable, evidenced by the facts of immigrant unemployment, as you yourself claimed.

Similarly, most immigrants would hope not to be discriminated against, nor suffer police harassment; the reality is not that, at the present time. I simply don't think it right for immigrants to be misled into a situation where the reality does not meet their reasonable expectancy, nor anyone to be subjected to the practical manifestations of that disillusionment - as currently in France.

There are serious problems, but it first has to be recognised that there are problems before anything can be done about them. Please don't suggest that the whole nature of a country, its culture, economy, social expectancy etc etc has to change to your Utopian model so as to support a clearly non-existant immigration policy (which it seems you are not prepared to even consider changing).

Then again, it's no good writing all this stuff if your mind is so closed that it cannot accept anything outwith your ingrained dogma, so that's all from me. Bye bye.
