Much has been made of the “hostile environment” being created for immigrants to the UK. The aim is to make it “unpleasant” for immigrants to this country in the hope they’ll want to “go home”. It’s led to some appalling decisions affecting people who have lived in and contributed to this society for most of their lives.
My bigger concern? Hostility can’t be contained. It can’t be put in a pigeon hole and “only applied here”. It permeates far wider and creeps into our culture.
Symptom or cause? Hard to tell.
