I am currently reading a thoroughly depressing book by George Walden, a former tory education minister, about the state of the UK. It takes the form of a letter to his son, who is thinking of emigrating. So far, there's not one of his observations that I can call untrue. Basically his premise is that the UK if fcuked, lost in a morass of an increasing underclass, low expectations, unassimilable immigrants we can't or won't keep out, rising taxes and increasing racial and religious tension. Left and right are equally to blame. It's always struck me as funny that the Left bangs on about immigrants rights, etc, yet ultimately it's business and the rich who benefit from a cheap supply of labour, whilst the indiginous workforce Labour is supposed to represent is priced out of the market. So, is it time to emigrate?
