It Couldn’t Happen Here…

Bloody Immigrants.

Coming over here, stealing our jobs, filling up our schools, clogging up our NHS, taking our council houses, congesting the roads…

 

And so on and so on.

 

Even if you buy into the myth that most of these humans are so-called ‘economic migrants’ moving to a new bit of land where the living conditions are better, rather than fleeing war or horrors beyond war…

Even if you think that, then so what?  Who hasn’t moved their family from one place to another to improve their lot?  Did you consider the socio-economic ramifications of your move on the area you were entering?  Did you worry about crossing any arbitrary borders set up over millennia of tribal wars of societies past?

If you think that suddenly, despite the fact that 28 countries having to agree on new members joining the EU, Turkey is going to begin pouring its population through the channel tunnel, then you really need to reconsider your approach.

Moving house is a huge pain in the backside.  Often quoted as one of the most stressful things in existence.  Imagine moving country.  Imagine what that involves.  It’s not popping to see a movie one evening.  My other half moved countries and I can tell you it wasn’t a walk in the park, and it remains with her to this day, and always will.

Imagine moving country not through any kind of real choice, but because your home has exploded.  Having mingled with actual escapees from war, I can report that resettling after that is not like checking out the location of the nearest post office or convenience store.

Take this interactive test… Let us all know how you got on…

But it couldn’t happen here!  Phew!  It only really happens to brown countries…

Imagine Trump getting the US presidency…

Imagine Johnson becomes PM…

Imagine Brexit causes a domino effect and the collapse of the EU…

Imagine Putin expands his Ukraine campaign…

This isn’t fear-mongering – this is a study of history and how people react to actual fear.

It could happen here.
