    We are part of the EU so no.Immigrants from outside of the EU that come from developed countries such as Japan and China should be encouraged to come here.The immigrant must have the skills and education that the economy requires.So for that reason their would be a great drop of Immigration from countries such as Nigeria.

    And please tell David why they would pick "this sh!thole" of a country.
    the lovely weather maybe or the thousands of jobs on offer.
    no way they would be here for our easy social welfare pickings.
    Its more than a 'few'

    Why do you have a problem with letting in people from China and Japan??The chinese and the Japanese have work ethics.Which is why Asian people in America are just as well off as caucasians.How many chinese restaurants do you see around the country?They are everywhere.These people are paying tax and contributing to society.Lets compare the number of chinese businesses in this country to the number of Nigerian businesses?I don't remember seeing any Nigerian business men for the many years that they have been coming here.However you may see plenty of Nigerians accepting social welfare.However I doubt you see many chinese will you?

    He says to get an idea of a country without immigration look at North Korea. (I think thats melo-dramatic)
    He could've said look at my hometown in my youth.
    He also pulls the Nazi card in his last line. Melodramatic, emotional blackmail.
    His other points seem valid though.

    I think some of the half a million might get jobs, obviously!
