@Lindermeyer. Look. When Ford closes it’s doors in Bridgend, what will replace it? Those people will either have to move to work or find something else. The problem IMHO is that no government is pro U.K. manufacturing preferring global conglomerates to “invest” in this country. .
Im not disagreeing with this.
Restricting immigration (0 Net) is something the UK should be doing as should several other countries - including a few in Africa ie those who cannot in theory feed the current population** with land available - If only to reduce Carbon emissions from transport of food. Others such as Eastern Europe require people.
I admit to a slight Malthusian outlook (as it was originally not how some have used it )
** That's only a few in Africa who Cannot - I concede theres plenty currently unable thanks to chronic mismanagement war and other causes.
