The Real Facts on the Effects of Immigration on the UK

This article by Bob Rowthorne, Professor of Economics at Cambridge University, in the Sunday Telegraph entitled " We need an honest debate on immigration" is required reading for all politicians. Read it here.

It's important to know that he is not a Conservative Party supporting academic. Check him out on the internet.

Personally, this is the first time I have come across his writings and they certainly do provide food for thought. There is nothing racist in what he says. Unlike some of the comments from Labour - whenever this topic is raised they always play the race card and the "same old Tories" jibes are wheeled out. They really do need to grow up - and very fast.
