He wasn't treated badly. High Wycombe is a decent area and he'll face a longer commute - is that really that bad in the scheme of things? The country granted him safe haven, maternity services,...

Clegg's 'turn the clock back' spiel is lame. If we leave the EU it'll be taking a very brave step forward - it might be reckless though.

I missed the beginning but Clegg seems rather less assured this week. Farage has edged this I think - seems to have had more applause in house as well.

She's been on a few times. Awfully smug Islington type. Peter Hitchens had an amusing spat with her.

People from outside the EU don't automatically have rights to live in the UK; they are granted rights or controls are relaxed, removal of primary purpose for example.

What's Empire got to do with it? We had an ex Empire in the 70s/80s when immigration was low.

I think that's right. 'Right To Buy' didn't reduce the overall housing stock; it gave working class people the opportunity to buy their own home. It's also worth remembering that back in the 80s our...
