The rate of net immigration to the UK has risen to one-third of one million human beings per year.
“Uncontrolled immigration threatens to deconstruct the nation we grew up in and convert [the UK] into a conglomeration of peoples with almost nothing in common – not history, heroes, language, culture, faith nor ancestors. Balkanization beckons.”

This is just an observation rather than shoving up a Vote Leave, or Leave EU, or Brexit, or some other ‘dump the EU’ slogan.
Seriously, can any society which delegates its governance to an unelected, unaccountable bureaucracy in a foreign land (aka the European Commission) – one of whose central policy planks is to foster the unfettered and uncontrolled movement of peoples – expect to do anything about this? The answer, in case you’re wondering, is almost certainly ‘No’.
The UK has delegated migration control (sic) to its de facto government, the European Commission. If thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of human beings choose to move into and across Europe to be in the UK, then that’s what will happen. Indeed, that is the express intention of ‘The Free Movement of Peoples’. Simples.
Quite why anyone would vote for this continuing, but wholly unsustainable, sovereignty-free and society-destroying arrangement does baffle me, I must say. I acknowledge and respect that many of my friends intend to vote for the UK to remain lashed to the European Commission (you can’t vote them in or out, by the way), but I’d very much welcome an exposition of the benefits of living in a small, crowded, island country growing at the rate of at least one city per year.
In the past 5 years, the UK’s population has grown faster than in the previous 1,500 years. As a society, how do we absorb and service that rate of change if, by being a member of the European Union, we are not permitted to control it?
