What the article says to me (Maybe I read between the lines too much?) is that the writer is upset about immigration policies and needed to provide a
most negative future to enforce their ideas. I can't comment on whether their ideas are valid or not since I don't know first hand what Britain is
dealing with, but I will say you can't blame all of societies woes on immigrants.
Ya, I caught the political moaning he was doing. Immigration is a tricky subject to deal with. A immigrant whom works well, pays taxes, etc..that's
good..that brings a country up. A immigrant whom comes, doesn't pay taxes, leeches off the system..that of course is bad. Its my understanding that
typical British immigrants tend to have jobs, pay taxes, etc.
Interestingly enough, As the baby boomers enter into pension age, you need more income to taxes to pay for them..so immigration, businesses spawning
because of the influx, etc are actually helping that.
But anyhow, if the UK wishes to do something about looming problems with medical and the like...they need to spend a lot more on breaking technologys
and innovations to overcome future obsticles. Also give bonuses to companies that do telecommuting over in house work would help in fuel, carbon
emmissions, and even increase worker productivity if managed well (after all, with no ride to work, you can rest a bit longer, be more refreshed, and
be on time/work late. Also decentralizing things from the southeast London area to the whole map through telecommuting would bring back a lot more
townships and tiny villages...suddenly not everyone would want to live in and around London for convenience.
That's just stuff that can be done today...much less in 40 years when we can't even comprehend the tech being used.
Ops, I would say dismiss the cranky old man article.
