Film at 11.

The rightwing press have been making such a fuss about the 'flood' of economic immigrants and asylum seekers into the UK, that people's perception of scale has been warped.

At least they got one thing right - 49% of people thought that Britain was more racist today than 10 years ago.

I'd be interested to see the breakdown by region, if they did one. Where I grew up there were very few 'immigrant' families, and of those most were second- or third- generation. In contrast, where I now work is a very multi-cultural area with the highest proportion in the country of schoolchildren who have English as a second language; I wonder how the opinions would differ between those areas.

Ye gods. That's so pathetic.
