More Asians are now opposed to immigration than white Britons, according to a new poll which reveals that opposition to new arrivals now transcends race.
Research commissioned by the Searchlight Educational Trust found that 39 per cent of Asians, 34 per cent of whites and 21 per cent of blacks believed immigration should be halted either permanently or at least until the UK's economy was back on track
Why would Asians oppose further immigration into the UK? Most likely because they know it's likely to make their own economic position more precarious. Perhaps too some don't want the mainstream culture entirely lost.
I hope that cheers British readers at least a little. The results aren't ideal but they do at least show 1 in 3 native Britons want immigration stopped, and they show that there is considerable support for this view too amongst immigrant groups.
