    That's because it's the future and no one can be certain what the future holds, not even you. You can't say that staying in the EU would be better for us in the future, you can't say that people that voted Leave made the wrong vote as you dont have a crystal ball, all you and anyone else can do is make your prediction based on what you think is the best choice. And while we are at it I cant say that Brexit will be a complete success, I can only predict it will turn out for the best, I know full well that it will have it's ups and downs and people like you will be wailing and gnashing your teeth at the Downs and ignoring the Ups.

    While it's on my mind, I would like to put a question to you in a similar way that you put one to me recently. You keep on knocking the Government's/Brexiteers/many voters of all persuasions concerns with past and present immigration levels but never seem to exlain your own view on the matter. I ask you: Do you think the numbers of immigrants we have experienced over the last ten years is acceptable and sustainable, also do you think there should be any control on immigration numbers in the future? I look forward to your answers.

    No, only christians were mentioned in the context and I didn't mean anything by it other than light heartedly trying to change the mood of the thread.

    If you want to discuss religion seriously in the round, start a thread and we'll see how long it lasts...

    Apologies if you thought that, it was no more than banter around the context of what was being posted and certainly not intended as comment on any individuals or even Christians in general.

    I think the level of immigration has contributed to the UK being the successful country that it is. That employers have exploited the willingness of immigrants to work for less than the indigenous community, and the unwillingness of the government to invest in the schooling, housing and NHS infrastructure required to service the growing population required to deliver the successful economy does not make the immigration the UK has experienced a bad thing.

    Looking forward, the level of nett immigration needs to be at the level that our burgeoning economy (I'll take the Brexit UPside) requires to burgeon. And as it burgeons governments will be able to invest the increased tax-take in the infrastructure required. As growth in our burgeoing economy slows then the demand for immigration will reduce and hence immigration can be throttled back.
