Sir Gulam Noon: raise drawbridge now I’m okay

Sir Gulam Noon, best known for making a loan to the Labour party in order to circumvent party funding rules, has called for Britain to close her borders for five or ten years, so that people like him, who landed in Britain with very little money but with hope, can be turned away:

“‘Bluntly, I think we are self-sufficient now,’ he writes. ‘We should wait for five or ten years, until all the newcomers have been properly integrated and assimilated into the country. Until then we should just shut the door.’”

Charming.

    Utterly bonkers.

    This is exactly what is known as ‘scarcity mentality’. Very prevalent with Southasian nouveau and not so riche.

    To be honest, this is a sentiment I have heard from quite a few black and asian friends and acquaintances recently.

    I suspect what he means is that HE is self-sufficient. And he is integrated enough to be knighted and have politicians knocking on his doors for donations.

    I also imagine he would not suggest that we apply the same rules for millionaires and billionaires.

    so no answer to the question then?

    Immigrants are usually the first target when the economy slows down.

    Britain is not self-sufficient in anything- except, perhaps, for ignorance, vanity, stupidity and selfishness, going by the number of people who’ve said things like this.

    So, at the top end, if another Albert Einstein were to become available, we’d stop him coming in?

    Or at the bottom end, we’d let fruit rot on trees rather than have it picked?

    Load of utter nonsense.

    and toilets to remain uncleaned.

    aaah the dignity of immigration!

    My god, someone actually suggesting that integrating immigrants into our society and economy is important.

    Talk about radical!

    LFAT I think you’ll find many immigrants attempt to integrate just fine over the years, the established communities here haven’t always been quite as welcoming as you’d like to think…
