In response to Kathy Gyngell: We can’t afford to wait for Brexit to get tough on immigration, Don Benson wrote:
Why are so many of our politicians and other public figures in favour of mass immigration? How can they fail to see that it is already destroying our country and laying up utter misery for our children and succeeding generations? How can they not understand that such huge surges in population on a finite land mass with finite physical resources are unsustainable?
Could it be something to do with a London-centric elite who inhabit a mind-set which has no realistic notion of physical space and simply cannot comprehend that London’s existence and success is completely dependent on the economic endeavours and physical resources provided by those who live outside of London? True, some Londoners will understand this, but they are presumably those who are capable of observing reality and thinking outside the London bubble.
