Did you notice the Irony? (13) UK Immigration Policy

The website of the UK Home Office which lists the official government policy on immigration says, on the same page even,

  • that “immigration enriches our culture and strengthens our economy”,
  • but then summarizes the goal of its policy as “reducing immigration”.

UK immigration policy irony

Does that lead to the logical conclusion that it is British government policy to reduce culture and weaken the economy?

    They “want to attract people to study, work and invest in the UK”, maybe but I guess not actually make it their official home? They won’t be attracting anyone with such mixed messages. There have been some polls that show Americans percentage wise are generally far more accepting of immigrants than many European countries. Initially that surprised me but it doesn’t anymore.

    Well it is a coalition, allegedly. They please all of the people all of the time… or so they would have us believe. David Cameron has just declared the UK a ‘Christian Country’ and his Centre Centre Right Conserative Liberal Coalition is the Government that recently introduced Gay marriage law.
    A leading EU member that retains it’s own currency the Monarchy and the House of Lords.
    The Centre Centre Left Ultra Politically Correct BBC has just sent one of it’s top stars Alpha Male icon Jeremy Clarkson for reprogramming. I think he coined the phrase ‘If it’s got tits or pistons it’s going to give you trouble.’ If he didn’t he certainly helped it along.
    The media including the BBC now officially prononce ‘Controversy’ contro versey (US) instead of contov ersy (UK) so American viewers don’t get confused. Most politicians use the UK pronunciation so you often hear both during news broadcasts.
    It’s perfectly legal and quite common to buy, sell and possess cannabis seeds but it’s illegal to cultivate it… It’s a class B drug but Police hardly ever prosecute for personal use unless there’s a mitigating circumstance like selling to school children or driving, even dancing naked in a public park smoking weed while high on magic mushrooms usually only gets a written Police Caution and a small fee for the ambulance. Don’t ask me how I know.
    The UK will be introducing Tax concessions for electric cars with petrol engines next… oh I forgot, they already have.
