We'll just agree to differ so. I just think the role that mass emigration has played in damaging some countries is never acknowledged in this whole debate, it always seems to be the immigration end of it that's focused on as the problem.
And it was the Isle of Man created by the Irish giant, Fíonn Mac Cumhaill.
The Welsh disagree.
And I'm not sure where we disagree.
So just to make sure we're on the same page, you said
I would disagree that Peter Hitchens is an asshole, although I frequently disagree with his views.
to which I replied
I think it would be a mistake to say Peter is an arsehole just on the titles of his views without reading the context. Immigration for example, he makes some good points on why we should limit it (limit it, not stop it) that have nothing to do with racism or xenophobia but are purely practical. We should be able to honestly discuss this without going to extreme simply because of what "side" we take.
and then you went on about Pakistan and taking young people from foreign countries and asked me why I thought those counties could progress with said smart young people fighting to make things better, even though I never said anything of the sort.
