Channel 4's controversial 'Immigration Street' programme, filmed in Derby Road – Southampton, is causing Southampton residents to feel their community is under threat and fear social unrest.
It’s not quite clear to us why Nigel Farage was interviewed yesterday about the terror attacks at Charlie Hebdo. The barbaric attacks in France yesterday have nothing to do with immigration, yet Farage’s starting point was this, accusing ‘these people’ of coming here and holding our passports then hating us in return.
Who ‘these people’ are Farage did not explain but the inference was one which lumps Muslims, and all Muslims, in with the acts of three French citizens.
Chancellor George Osborne rejects Theresa May’s recent proposal to prevent International students staying once they have graduated due to warning that the move would damage British universities and business.
Campaigners including inventor Sir James Dyson have contributed to the rejection of the measure. In a recent article published in the Guardian, Dyson labels May’s proposal as 'shortsighted vote-chasing’,
Even Tory High Commander for London, Mayor Boris Johnson, thinks the Government's immigration policies are not working.

Take to the twittersphere tonight to take down the racists responding to Question Time. JCWI joins the debate.
In what the Independent have branded a 'debate between immigration vs revolution' tonight's Question Time looks set to set Twitter alive with a heated debate between two of Britain's most infamous comedians.
Gloves a ready, on the one side 'Red Russell', in the purple and yellow corner far-right Farage and his racist, anti-immigrant (and just about everything else) diatribes.

From 1st December 2014, landlords in the ‘pilot’ areas, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall will need to check the immigration status of tenants, sub-tenants and lodgers, entering into new tenancies, who are aged over 18 and pay for their accommodation, to assess whether they have the right to rent in the UK. This means that they must have current leave to be in the UK.
