Is the UK too hostile to immigration?

Is the UK too hostile to immigration?
What the hell kind of question is this?

Is the UK too hostile to immigration? was the poll question on BBC UK Sunday Morning Live show last weekend.

BBC Sunday Morning Live has REALLY gone off with Sian Williams at the helm! What a pity. I used to love it.

It’s shallow, fractured with all sorts of input from Festivals happening countrywide that breaks it up into strange unrelated segments, and the worst thing is that it’s SO politically correct, promoting acceptable ideas and seldom discussing the unacceptable ones! And never giving them weight or any depth.

Are the people of the UK too hostile to immigration?
Hostile? Hostile is an emotive and unfortunate word. Who likes being labelled “hostile”?

This is a loaded question, purposefully constructed to garner the politically correct answer. Hostile?  Shame on hostile people. Who is “the UK”? Who is “hostile”? Are those who feel we need to control immigration, “hostile”?

How do you answer the question? YES? or NO?

and the result waaaaas……

YES   27%                                                 NO  73%

And the word discussed after the surprised response from the panel was “hostile”. Someone suggested this was a bad reflection of how we really feel – we are nicer than it seems – evidently – not really “hostile”.

Mmmm – looks pretty cut and dried to me. We – the “UK”, don’t mind being “hostile”.  And we don’t mind admitting it!

Despite the BBC.
