The EU should heed former Australian PM on migration
TONY ABBOTT, the former prime minister of Australia, has long been a beacon of common sense.
Lo and behold the boats stopped.
Not only has this prevented Australia from being overwhelmed with new arrivals desperate for housing and benefits but it has saved many would-be migrants from a watery grave and put people traffickers out of business.
To date more than 700,000 migrants are thought to have landed on Mediterranean shores while countless others have perished on the way. And still, as winter approaches, the boats continue to set off from North Africa.
This is where the current soft-headed approach has got us. It can’t go on.
Our nation is at stake, says Nick Ferrari
SHE tried, Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May. Lord knows she tried.
If you TRULY have a problem with this country examining the issue of mass immigration that saw more than 300,000 people arrived here last year according to the official net migration figures – and the highly likely prediction that figure will be matched or bettered this year – then look away now.
If, however, you agree that everything from jobs to water and hospitals to housing is affected by this then welcome to the real world.
Home Secretary Theresa May tried to talk about that at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester last week.
But her vital message was drowned out by the dismal and predictable future leadership beauty parade babble that was always going to come out of that baffling kitchen confession from Prime Minister David Cameron, prior to the General Election earlier this year, that he’s close to throwing in the towel and putting his feet up after retirement.
The suggestion made by Mrs May that social cohesion in Britain is harmed by mass migration is true.
Yes; you read that correctly.
It is true that mass migration harms the nation’s social cohesion.
And anyone who denies or ignores this is putting in jeopardy everything this nation has stood for down the years.

Any attempt to try to highlight or even explore this is instantly dismissed as racist and tragically, the reaction to May’s speech serves only to underscore that.
We have somehow managed to get to a point at which it is seen as a racist act to stand up for the people of Britain.
Racist to worry if those born in this country and who have been paying into the gigantic tax take for decades can expect speedy NHS treatment.
However, the issues she tried to tackle are deserving of the closest examination.
How can it be right that so many struggle to pay their tax yoke at the same time knowing their children will fare even worse than themselves.
The immediate and misfounded cries of racism must be ignored if we are to get even a smidgen closer to a resolution.
