Two Questions

Ambush Predator picks up on a report in the Mail, commenting on a statement by Alan Johnson - Home Secretary and, as some would have us believe, the next Leader of the Labour Party - that he does not lie awake worrying about Britain's population hitting 70million and that he is not afraid of living in a multi-cultural society.

Since when did a government Minister actually 'live' with the 'hoi-polloi and have to contend with all the hassle that that entails?

An example of how the political class/elite is held in such contempt is exemplified by the statement from Sir Andrew Green who poses the simple question: "For a start, how is a government that is broke going to pay for all the houses, schools and hospitals that an extra seven million immigrants will need in the next 20 years?"

Maybe we, the people, should insist that a pre-requirement to become an MP is that they take an IQ test?

The answer to the first question is "No", and I can't see a second question.

As to Sir A's point, why would the government worry about paying for this? They won't have to pay - we will.

First question - living with hoi-polloi

Second question - IQ tests
