ONE hundred and nine people have confirmed their attendance at Boston’s anti-immigration static protest.

The immigration protest on Sunday, November 18 at 2pm in the town has been organised by Dean Everitt.

The decision to protest was made following the publication of a report from Boston Borough Council into the social impact of population change in Boston.

Lincolnshire Police and Boston Borough Council issued a joint statement whcih stated: “Lincolnshire Police and Boston Borough Council have been working with the protest organisers to ensure they hold a peaceful protest. This event is being policed by local officers and anyone intent on causing disruption or public disorder will be dealt with swiftly and robustly. It will be business as usual in Boston on the day.”

    FenBoi...... Looks like hes asking to use the toilet. But if it is a salute, (and Im not 100% convinced), he is one out of many. Lets not stiffle protest and debate because were scared of one bloke raising his arm. The woman near him has her arm raised too, but in a different gesture and is actually looking genuinely passionate. Its her issues that we should be taking notice of, not those of the perceived racist. There will be an undesirable element at most large protests, but unfortunately its the media that give the minority the oxygen of publicity. This usually serves a negative purpose.

    If this group desires to gain any credibility in the future it should get rid of the racist elements that attended the event - especially the character that gave the Sieg Heil salute after the speeches as seen here: http://tinyurl.com/cgv45av nb.

    You know what Pete? You're right. It is exactly what I said, that everyone in the world should be here and that because of that there would be billions of jobs. The economy would not grow if more work was being done so there would be no more jobs, and if all of China moved here there would be a billion jobs in their home land just waiting, left unfilled and would stay that way until their return. Leading economist are clearly wrong on this because you have noticed since 1960 it is harder to get a job. Interestingly it has been said that people staying in work longer, past retirement, increases the number of jobs for the younger. But again this is on the whole lump of labour thing and you have demonstrated that it does not work because you have noticed it is harder to get a job since the 60s.

    eatmygoal - Sometimes it can create more jobs, but even 5 time more would be pushing it let alone 10. If things worked out the way you seem to think we could bring every one in the world here, and have billions of jobs going spare. When you notice week after week what's happened in Britain since the 1960 (when I first started work), You'd have noticed it gets harder and harder to find a job.

    Maybe if the school leavers that are not working had taken up the jobs of harvesting crops we would not be in this position, in the early 60's the only work was on a farm and I had to do these jobs same as other lads plus a gang of women, it was hard dirty work but it paid a wage. Make the young do the jobs or stop all benefit, then send the EU workers back home. Would be better if we were to get out of the EU.

    Pete, 1000 into 100 assumes that 100 is fixed, ie the lump. Those 100 are not fixed and as people take up jobs it creates other jobs. There are not a set amount. Like I say, give it a google.

    Why when talking about immigration, do people who seem to want to embrace it with very little restrictions, always use the argument that the indigenous population are "lazy" and our ancestors are all immigrants anyway? Firstly lets tackle the "brits are lazy" scenario shall we. Take the land workers of Boston area for instance. I am told by plenty of former land workers that working on the land was quite a lucrative job. However since the inclusion, in particular, of the Eastern European countries to the EU, the area has become a hotbed of migrant workers,offering their labour to the gang masters' at a much cheaper rate than those previously employed on the land, quite often, so I'm told, at the minimum wage. So when the "indigenous" population were asked to take a quite substantial drop in their earnings, they refused and found themselves without employment. The gang masters' prices never dropped but their outlay for labour did, thus increasing their profits. Nothing to do with being lazy, just not being prepared to do the job for a fraction of what they used to be paid, A bit like how companies moved call centres to India, because financially, these companies would be better off. Migrants come here because they can earn more money here than in their homeland, and also they get immediate access to services, like free healthcare, so you can see the attraction. All races have the "spongers" and "lazy" people amongst them, including the Eastern European nations, to think otherwise is very naive. As for the second point, that really is a weak argument, as we should all be concerned with the here and now, and not the Normans or anyone else, marauding across the countryside centuries ago.

    eatmygoal - Lump of Labour fantasy? How on earth do you get that. It's just simple logic 1000 into 100 doesn't fit very well (maybe you can explain how you do it for the benefit of the rest of us). By the way when I went to school Sir Anthony Eden was in power and supported by myself and my Family (Conservative). So maybe you are the Labour supporter or maybe just an agitator. Myself these days I just support the ones who do their best for me (take that as you will).
