More money? It's less immigration we need
THE Labour group on Derby City Council is misguided in asking for financial assistance from the Government to help deal with the over-burdening problems of immigration ("City's cash settlement 'already takes account of trends in migration'". March 2).
Instead, it should be using whatever political influence it has to lobby the Government to cut migration. This is the root of this and many other problems the country faces.
However, it is, sadly, indicative of Labour to throw money at an issue in the hope it will go away, when in reality it is morally wrong to expect the taxpayer to foot the bill.
Labour has totally got the angle on this issue wrong. This country has a proud and long tradition of helping immigrants who genuinely fear for their lives, and long may that continue, but allowing uncontrolled "open door" immigration to continue isn't right and it isn't fair.
