Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Yes, I do mean those people. Those people to whom the United Kingdom surely owes some moral responsibility which it doesn't owe to anyone from Romania or Estonia or Sweden.

And of course the EU is partly responsible for the Windrush scandal. Successive British governments have felt pressure to restrict immigration. They can't restrict it from Europe, so they have to restrict it from elsewhere - just like the Swiss do. You've seen the threads on EF - there are enough of them!

By giving priority to EU immigrants, it naturally follows that non-EU immigrants are penalised. That's how priorities work. Have you never queued up for an Easyjet flight?
Strangely Spain, also members of the EU, seem to be perfectly able to accept immigration from its former colonies.

Plus if you bother to look at Martin's earlier graph it is very clear that the UK accepts many more non -EU immigrants than EU over the years.

And as for the EU being partially responsible for Windrush, an event with its roots in the 50s....sorry but that is truly laughable.
