Since 1997, Tony Blair’s Labour government has effectively abandoned restrictions on immigration into Britain that have been in place since 1905. It is now taken as a fact of life that there will be constant large-scale immigration into Britain. Defenders of the government’s position argue that Britain is a mongrel nation, resulting from hundreds of years of immigration, and that we are all either immigrants or descendants of immigrants. According to this view, there is nothing special about the present situation, and nothing to worry about.
