Thread Name: BS: UK immigration too high?
Subject: RE: BS: UK immigration too high?
Yes, thank you.
I have family in seaside towns in Cornwall so I know that housing in such towns as yours is a big issue for locals and not related to immigration.

My argument was that, especially in urban areas, the rapid rise in population has outstripped any possibilty of providing housing and many other services, and immigration has been the main driver of that rise.
There is also the issue of jobs and wages.

Can I invite people to say now where they stand, with a single sentence.
1 Immigration should rise.
2 The current rate is sustainable.
3 Immigration is too high.

For myself, I think it is too high because it is a significant cause of social, economic, and environmental problems.
