  1. There are few other countries….apart from the US, Canada, Australia and NZ, where an immigrant can come to live and within a few decades become part of the furniture as Gloria and many others have.
    And yet, as a country and as a people we are maligned as being cold and unwelcoming! Quite bizarre.
    Every immigrant to this country should have to present themselves before an immigration board manned by those of immigrant stock who have made a success and assimilated themselves into our ways of doing things.
    If they don’t pass muster they should not be allowed to stay. And no one could then accuse the ethnic English of being discriminatory.
