Public should've been consulted

Published 06/01/2014

WHETHER immigrants are good for this country, or not, is not the point (News, January 2). It is the negation of democracy that sticks in most people's craws.

The invasion of other cultures will inevitably change the nature of our country. The questions are: Were we, the established population, asked whether we agreed to this fundamental change in our society? Were we given an adult explanation? Were we consulted?

Immigrants feed the interests of business; they don't let the people decide the nature of the country in which they wish to live; and the politicians, who treat us with such scant regard, wonder why they are held in such contempt.
