Eight years pretty much destroyed". “I was eating boiled rice for two months. I didn’t even have money to put sauce on the rice. I lost a lot of weight because of this. Even now I’m not eating as I should be"- says Waqus Jawaid

Population ageing is not a crisis: "I wouldn't call population aging a problem. Different demographics produce different challenges and opportunities but they are not necessary problems."

Simply cannot understand why anybody involved thinks this is a good idea. Spectacular example of ‘poverty porn’ which reinforces stereotypes about life in ‘developing countries’, fails to engage in any way with underlying causes, ignores context of poverty/inequality in UK...

Interesting to note that our Brendan, who now insists that a 52% referendum win is sacrosanct and must be respected, did not feel that way about the 71% and 94% referendum endorsements of the Good Friday Agreement...

All loss of life is tragic/sad but especially when murdered in this horrific way. Sri Lankans (again) have born most of it again this Easter (as during the tsunami & civil war).

Here's a piece I wrote for our depopulation mini-series from a Romanian province where 44% of all medical positions are vacant, as the country loses tens of thousands of doctors and nurses it paid to train to western Europe

Which current EU country has the largest number of citizens (4.9 million) living abroad? It’s the country that calls its citizens living abroad “ex-pats” rather than calling them “immigrants”.

I am getting sick of that good migrant narrative. Every migrant is entitled to live a life free of racism or xenophobia. Even those who don’t work, are not homeowners, do not speak good English, don’t give to U.K charities & don’t help their neighbours. Can we make this clear?

Interesting look at landscape but pip pip on language: "Canadians in their 60s and 70s are younger than ever, and getting more youthful every day."They're not "younger", they're living longer in relatively good nick. 70 = 70 even in 2019.

There are at least 3 million adults in Britain who have no right to vote in Westminster elections but can vote in the European elections scheduled for May 23. They are nationals of other EU countries. Everybody can register. It takes 5 minutes. Do it.

Eton, Bullingdon, Oxbridge, Westminster. There is a group of people who have struggled to integrate into British society and fuelled the far right. They're not migrants.

Look, Tony, I'm white, fluent in English, mostly have British friends, do pretty much everything like British people do and STILL some people told me and will tell me to "go back to the shithole I came from". Whatever they do, migrants will always be outsiders for the far right.

This is kind of logic has long been used by 'the centre'. With no evidence whatsoever, they blame migrants for the growth of the far-right - never bothering to look at how they legitimise some of the racialised narratives the far-right thrive off of
