Re: Japan and Sweden

Agree with all you said in your long post, Jonah, but I think one wee thing

needs to be added after your last words, which were:

“Some restrictionists … look at the Japans and Swedens and say ‘look they

preserve their cultural identity by shutting out immigrants.’ Maybe so, but

their cultural identity has no room for immigrants. Ours does.”

The thing that needs to be added is the thing the late Enoch Powell used to

say about immigration into Britain: “Numbers are of the essence.”

If the numbers are not controlled, we shall soon HAVE no cultural identity.
