Seven out of ten Britons are against immigrationThe vast majority of Britons think there are too many immigrants in the UK, that immigrants place too much pressure on public services and that high immigration affects job prospects, an IPSOS Mori poll has revealed.
Seventy-one percent of respondents said there are ‘too many immigrants in this country’. The poll surveyed citizens of 23 countries around the world, and only Russia (77 percent) and Belgium (72 percent) were more concerned about immigration.
Seventy-six percent stated immigration places too much pressure on public services, such as health, transport and education – the highest percentage of all countries asked – and 62 percent said immigration has made it more difficult for them to find employment.
Just 27 percent believed immigration is good for the economy, and only 33 percent thought immigrants ‘make Britain a more interesting place to live in’ – proving public opinion flies in the face of those oft-repeated racist lies of the left.
All questionnaires were purposefully ‘weighted’ to ensure demographics were ‘balanced’ and that ‘the sample’s composition reflects that of the adult population according to the most recent country Census data’, suggesting the actual amount of indigenous Britons against immigration is far higher.
The results of this latest poll represent a continuation of the high level of opposition to immigration in Britain and across the West.
In December 2010, 73 percent of those surveyed said they would be ‘unhappy’ if Britain were to become a majority-non-white nation, proving public antipathy towards immigration is not just a matter of numbers, but of race.
In January 2011, 78 percent said they want immigration cut back, and in May this year, up to 92 percent of respondents said they wanted immigration levels drastically slashed.
