"The way immigration is reported in the media worries me. I sometimes think ‘oh maybe I don’t have a place here, maybe I should go somewhere else.’ When they bring in this legislation, for example limiting your rights to benefits, I think it puts up a barrier, and makes me think ‘oh, I thought I lived here too and contributed,' but not everyone sees it like that."

"I’m a strong believer that, if one decides to live in a different country, then every effort should be made to assimilate. I have my doubts about multiculturalism: in the long term I don’t think that communities that self segregate and live a parallel life to wider society are a good thing."

"I think the debate about immigration is really about two issues: immigration and resources. I think if you contribute to society then you have the right to be there. But what I don’t agree with is people not contributing to society, who just move to get something out of it."
"Immigration without limits cannot be good for anyone, in my view."

“The EU breaks down barriers between people and promotes tolerance and understanding… but I am afraid that this being taken for granted. The EU is often described as a union between governments, but it is equally a union between, and for, the people of Europe.”

“In our countries the situation is reversed. People are going away, not coming in, so the government is trying hard to get people to stay. In England you are gaining people, which is also a problem in a way, but a different one.”
