Immigration: The difference between Libertarians and the BNP.

Could have done with a health warning about Julie Bishop. Another member of the Liberal party who is anything but liberal.

"The" difference? Are there actually any similarities between Libertarianism and the BNP*?

* Apart from giving special status to property-owners, but then nearly all political parties do that apart from perhaps the Greens.

It's the key difference in the area of immigration, Mark.

I think Libertarians agree with the BNP only in that we'd also withdraw from Europe and that we would also maintain a stance of armed neutrality. In every other aspect, we disagree.

I suspect that once Nick Griffin starts to get his hands on that lovely EU lucre, he will convert to being a good citizen of the EU Soviet, too. Don't want to damage that lovely pension, now do we?

Mark Wadsworth said...

"armed neutrality", sounds good to me.

Can we tell the UN, the IMF, the World Bank and NATO where to shove it as well?

I normally agree with O'Rourke on most subjects but on this I feel he is way off the mark. Uncontrolled immigration is fine if you have no welfare state. Unfortunately in Britain with it's welfare for all it is a non starter.

@infidel: there's an easy fix to that. ;o)

Sorry Obo,

Australia is chock full. It's a big country all right, but the vast majority of it is shithouse desert and wasteland.

The wonky infrastructure we currently have can barely hold things together. How do you explain to the people who built, and paid for it all, that it's not enough because we have foreigners to educate, nurse and house?

Australia is not the USA, and although I hold PJ in great esteem, but he's way off the mark on this.

The example of someone arriving there on an exploding boat being someone you want is a two-edged sword. What's a cunt like that going to do to you when he gets hungry?

We see for ourselves every day here in Britain the costs of laissez-faire immigration.
