Just listening to Alan Duncan on Question Time (in response to the Morrisey issue) saying that he basically doesn't want any more immigrants coming into the country. All I can say is that I'm a fourth generation immigrant, and I don't expect I'll ever forget it.

In 1897, when my great grandfather came here from Romania/Moldova, fleeing persecution, this country welcomed him, and he made a whole life he. Sure, he made a contribution, built up a business (or two), and was forever proud of his British identity. If Alan Duncan had his way, I wouldn't exist.
