Interesting Comment on Immigration

Posted on the 26 September 2013 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth
Nod2glod at HPC, in the context of something completely different:
For me the key to the migration issue is entitlements. Only people who feel they are entitled to things, i.e. free money, land, public services are worried about immigration.
"Oh those immigrates are taking our - jobs; housing; services; land, etc."
If you only get what you work for, then having other people here is less of an issue.
The whole concept that the fact you were born on a piece of land within an imaginary line drawn on a piece of paper gives you a set of entitlements is ridiculous when you stop to think about it objectively. It all comes down to the defence of the entitlement to take other people's labour, which is the basis of our tax and spend society.
