This affects almost every area of British life. For instance it affects housing. In order to cope with immigration at the current rate, this country needs to build a new house every few minutes. The ‘housing shortage’ in Britain is talked about as though it is a native phenomenon – as though the British people just keep needing more and more houses. In fact we only need to keep building on green-belt land and covering over our beautiful countryside with new houses because we keep importing more and more people. Why do we do this? Why do we need to keep doing it? What is the cultural enrichment that we failed to get from the first few million Pakistani and Bangladeshi migrants which we will only be able to really enjoy from the next few million?
