After assisting a number of clients from the UK emigrate to Canada, I can't help but realize a growing sentiment against the immigration policies of that (inclusive) nation. Author P. Whittle seems to encapsulate the feeling of alienation (perhaps) pervasive in the (once) majority and found at this blog. Other, more recent events (I'm specifically thinking about Australia's beach incident - news article here) suggest that it is a sentiment not confined to the UK. The benefits of diversity are perhaps not so clear or obvious to everyone. Perhaps the underlying assumption that immigration is always good should also be examined. I don't believe that a knee-jerk dismissal of these feelings (at least as enunciated by Whitter) as mere racism is justified; whereas the Australian attacks must be denounced.
