A record number of British citizens are leaving because of crime, illegal and legal immigration, fears of terrorism and a bad health system.
Government figures say an unprecedented 196,000 left the country last year seeking a new life in other countries.
Meanwhile 574,000 newcomers arrived in Britain, mostly from countries that do not have Western cultural values.
Britain is helping to undermine itself. Hundreds of thousands of asylum-seekers will be granted “amnesty” on human rights grounds. Human rights was the reason given for blocking the deportation of an Italian native who murdered a school teacher twelve years ago and was sentenced to life. But he is likely to get out next year and will be allowed to remain in Britain, though the government wanted to deport him. The head of the Human Rights Council is a member of the British equivalent of the ACLU.
Britain is doomed and America, where the same immigration strategy is practiced, may not be far behind.
