Subject: RE: BS: Nationalism - a good or bad thing?
As I indicated, I don't assume people voting for Brexit were necessarily racist. I don't even assume people opposed to freedom of movement are necessarily racist.

It's just that I value the immigrants we've been getting whether from Poland or Scotland.

If I lived in a country plagued by emigration, such as Poland - or Scotland - I'd be very much in favour of finding ways of reducing the pressures on young people to emigrate, and curing the plague of emigration. That would cut down on immigration here, but I'd be glad to feel that the people we'd be losing would have the opportunity to stay home where in most cases they'd far sooner be. But stopping them coming at this end, no way.
