    I just hope ISIS never get round to reading Wilbur Smith. I am currently reading Pharoah - which has as many sick torments in as the rest.

    He is fairly liberal and pro immigration. He did try to present it in a fairly unbiased way.

    The interesting thing was the way the public mood changed around the 1900s and why.

    From an allow everyone in 1800s to a no more destitute Aliens in 1918.
    The men came back from the front and found all their jobs were taken by cheap immigrant labour.

    Interestingly enough I hadn't realised how those nice Germans had slaughtered so many Belgians at the start of WWI and England had opened its Borders & hearts to the massive influx of refugees

    World War One: How 250,000 Belgian refugees didn't leave a trace - BBC News

    The UK was home to 250,000 Belgian refugees during World War One, the largest single influx in the country's history.
    we are seeing annual levels twice that.....

    Oh and the Belgians went home once we saw off the Hun. The government were pretty firm about it.


    well worth a watch.

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.
