Ugh? Its not because it doesn't suit us, its because it is wrong, and it is under this derogatory climate that makes the discrimination of English people acceptable.

I wouldn't defend all industries, some, perhaps like the mills and garment industry are low wage, and as such we should be happy to see them go to developing countries, but that can't be said for all. Some have not been subject to wage pressures, you mention shipbuilding, in 2012 German yards, 12 of them, produced produced 470,000 tons of shipping.

No the Conservatives are too lazy. When they stabbed Mrs T in the back they got rid of the only person who was prepared to go toe to toe with the left, since then its been political and ideological capitulation, culminating in this fraud Cameron who ducked any sort of political fight, and whose strategy was to say 'me too' to New Labour's policies, but with knobs on.

Perhaps someone should let the Bournemouth Echo know what their MP thinks of his Constituents.

Well said , you have put Cameron's faux claims about bringing down immigration into perspective, essentially there is no difference between Blair's Labour and Cameron's Conservatives.

The British establishment would never permit the electorate bind their hands on immigration, not when they have a lot of vested interests to look after. Just for them to give us a referendum on the EU is like wringing blood out of stone. It is quite strange, we have political establishment who don't think twice about handing our sovereignty over to Brussels or the ECHR, but they would claim the world was coming to an end if the British electorate asked for a say in matters.

No it means employers will have to invest in productivity, or move their product range up market for better margins and better returns. Right now our productivity rates are falling.

In addition this squeeze on wages and terms and conditions was not a product of the recession, for wages had already stagnated back in 2004. And what happened in 2004? Labour threw open our borders to the world, well Eastern Europe.

Yes I did, my parents in memory of the welcome they got from a small Scottish community when starting out on their married life, gave their children a Scottish Christian name, which shows it was a long time ago, as I doubt they, as an English couple, would be so welcome there now, and they don't feel too charitable to the Scots themselves. My surname on one side of the family is very indigenous to the SW of England, while the other side I go under on the messageboard is well represented in the SW as well as spread around other areas of England.

No that line of argument doesn't wash. Ellwood constructed an argument where he claims there is an equal force to mass immigration to be represented by Little Englanders, he wasn't referring to anybody else's argument , he selected a group, and gave it a name, that he put it in inverted commas doesn't excuse him.
