Immigration threat to our status as a nation

Civitas is being reported here (by the Press Association) as saying the the UK may already have reached a tipping point where it is no longer a nation but a collection of nations.

Now of course the UK is made up of 4 nations ( the home nations). But the debate over who the English are perhaps shows this up. I believe of people ( often called communities - mini-Nations perhaps ) are unsettled by the potential break up of the UK as they don't feel English, but they are happy with a British identity.

We are storing up great trouble for ourselves in the future, by the lazy failure to address this issue now.

What happened to the former Yugoslavia should have been a warning to us all.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. When are we going to wake up?

Wish you'd been over to help me in my debate on immigration today.
