At this month’s U3A discussion group some 10 members discussed the impact of immigration on our English/British way of life. Was immigration a good thing or was our way of life under threat, or indeed was it now too late?

We discussed why immigrants/refugees wanted to come here. Was it for work, for benefits, did immigrants take “our” jobs, or are some immigrant groups good and others bad?

A wide range of views were given and a lively discussion was had.
