Mass immigration is a vast Ponzi scheme promoted by economists, who treat humans in their computer models as completely fungible, like widgets. Immigrants get old themselves, and need pensions and medical care. The economists’ solution is to import more immigrants . . .

I don’t know whether the author of this article is aware that it’s all over. This country has been given away from under our feet. Millions of people have been imported to the detriment of our own workers. London is virtually a foreign enclave and, to add insult to injury, we’re compelled to ‘celebrate’ the ‘diversity’. Too late now; much too late to start ‘investing’ in our own. We’ve had it.Mike Bell wrote:
The shortage of people training for the Health Service needs minor changes to the school science curriculum. As a science teacher in a secondary school a few years ago I was struck by the disconnect between the material we had to cover and the real world that most of my pupils would live in. The GCSE course is still designed as a preparation for A-level, not as a preparation for life.
Our school was in the same road as the local hospital, but, when I took a group of students on a visit, I discovered that no other teacher had taken any there for years! The effect on the students was electric. These lower-achieving students met people doing valuable jobs they could do.
Even for the higher-achieving students, the GCSE course makes almost no links to the Health Service. It would not take much to link the ideas they were learning in science to the real world.
