Thought this might be worth consideration and was exactly what I was trying (badly) to say.
That said my principle reason for voting leave was democracy, followed by the euro army and lastly trying to manage immigration from all parts of the world so we can do our best that people (perhaps from opposing sides of regional conflicts) get on.

"writing in the Daily Mail". Very much playing to a specific audience then.

I thought the EU army was a made-up thing? Along with the £350m, Turkey joining, and so on.

As expected, no reasonable debate.
Too many guardanistas on here. LOL
The very PC mob that really helps extremism flourish.
We need people from all sections of our society being progressive and challenging when things are wrong - not just towing some pc sweetness and light party line.More and more immigrants are progressive and have fled here to get away from regressive religions. They need help not just be forced to accept it through some sort of cultural piety which feeds the weasel BNP etc.
Honestly, I am concluding the remainers were more concerned about pension prices, pensions etc that the so called rights of immigrants. It was just a smokescreen.
Trevor Philips has always stood up for immigrant rights and I assume you can't call him racist?
As for your BNP sadists, lock them up when they do wrong. Just like anyone else who breaks the law no matter what their religion or background.

I thought his article was pretty good. It probably could only be said by a non-white person.

Thank you Peregrina. Yes I agree.
re: It probably could only be said by a non-white person.
That just proves the point further.

Preventing anyone from saying what's on their minds won't ever remove it from their hearts

Sadly the truth of that was shown after the result when a lot of scum bags thought it gave them permission to update their slogan from Paki go home to Pole go home. What is even worse is that the young people who were scrameing that abuse had been educated in s PC schooling process that simply told anyone to STFU.

What is even more sad is the way MN's rounded on me when I tried to engage a debate about how integration or isolation. As Peregrina says, only a coloured person can say those things.... which in istelf is a problem.
