Great argument for a return to Empire days where we can happy live off the the poorer nations of the world Al
I have no desire to do that and I never have had.
Perhaps when it becomes impossible to do so, the lesser well off in Britain will get off their arses and do something about the rapidly increasing gap between haves and have nots instead of relying on immoral trade.
It's not a decent argument Al - it debases us as human beings and it's what those in power rely on to maintain a floundering system - divide and conquor.
One thing Isis and Manchester has shown is that to continue treating the Third World as a meal ticket and immigrants as an unwelcome liability is blowing up in our faces and it's ordinary people like bus passengers and young concert goers who are taking the brunt of it.
You can bet your house and land that if these incidents were taking place in Belgravia or the leafy suburbs, Government would take more long-term actions to win hearts and minds to try and to stop them instead of moving the deck-chairs, as they are now.
We cannot continue to live off the misery of the poor of the world.
