PTOW: Migration

Here is the new PTOW (Political Thought Of the Week). It used to be PTOD, but one a day was never realistic.


The British press has recently re-started blaming economic migrants for a variety of ills, such as raising unemployment, parasitising on benefits, crime, etc. The Greek press are even worse, with every social wrong being lumped on recent migrants, typically the Albanians. The main characteristic of these views is not that they are racist, but that they are hypocritical. The newspaper editors actually want the immigrants to keep coming in large numbers, but not to acquire legal rights.
