When I was young, Britain had this mysterious thing called a balance of payments surplus. Attending a real school (no trendy, lefty, idiot teachers) I soon learned that this meant that we exported more goods and services than we imported.
The more we did this, including being the world’s financial centre, the more prosperous we became. This meant that we could recover from the financial disaster of the Second World War that had bankrupted us and pour more and more into a fantastic system of healthcare for our people. We could also afford to financially help any of our people who were out of work, pay for our pensioners to live quite well and look after our disabled and mentally ill.
People were buying their own homes, having families and generally enjoying a better life than their parents, who until they were “called up” to possibly die in a foreign country had never been abroad before.
Then, the foreign country came to Britain! Millions of people with different languages, customs and values (if any) poured into Britain in a never-ending flood.
No economy in the world could afford this and Britain was no different. Suddenly there were too many people “benefitting” and not enough producing the wealth to pay for it all, causing the misery of a “health crisis”, unemployment crisis and much else besides. Britain’s balance of payments fell into deficit and things have not looked good for a long time now.
In future, the Port of Dover must have one truck lane for “IN” (for the occasional truck load of bananas and pineapples) and ten lanes for “OUT”, as we export goods and food to the EU and non-EU worlds, like times gone by.
Working in conjunction with this booming industrial and agricultural activity must be a complete halt to immigration, followed by the financially assisted repatriation of all immigrants who refuse to conform to British values. The effect of this would be to reduce the crippling strain on our health service and end the housing crisis, almost overnight.
To those who mock our “economic utopia” we say this: Britain did most of these things before in the late 50s and early 60s, and Donald Trump is doing it in America now – with two and a half million jobs created so far!
