"Truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. A loss of courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days..." Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Commencement address at Harvard University , June 8, 1978

A Yougov poll survey has shown that seven out of ten British adults want a massive cut in immigration; the poll also showed that only one in twenty supported the current record levels.

These un-fettered levels have seen Britain’s population increase by at least 300,000 every year for the last five years.

The findings suggest immigration could become a significant election issue and sparked warnings that voters could turn to parties like the National Front if mainstream politicians fail to acknowledge their concerns.

Due to EU regulations Britain has not got any control over migration from other EU countries such as Poland and other Eastern European countries.

The poll, commissioned by Migration Watch for the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration, was published on the eve of the release of immigration figures today.

It found that 79 per cent of people were concerned or very concerned about immigration. Seventy per cent of the 2,072 respondents favoured cutting levels by 80 per cent or more.

Of those, 17 per cent said net immigration should be brought below 50,000 a year - a level last seen in the early 1990s.

Another 39 per cent favoured a policy of zero net immigration, with the numbers settling in the UK matching the numbers emigrating. Sixteen per cent said the number of immigrants should be lower than those leaving.

Just over half of more affluent voters - ABC1s - wanted either zero or negative net immigration, while 63 per cent of 18 to 34-year-olds favoured a figure below 50,000.

Home Office ministers say their new points-based immigration system represents a tough crackdown.

The National Front say that this points-based system will have little effect, especially as Britain has no control over the numbers arriving from EU states. We must firstly leave the EU and its foreign control of our lands this will allow us to continue to trade with European countries without seeding sovereignty to them and being controlled by un-elected bureaucrats.

We would of course call for a complete halt in immigration then begin a process of repatriation. The question is how difficult can it be to secure an island?
