Your article should have been publised side by side with it!!........yes, that is what it is...immigrant bashing....sadly, a good % of the population who will read the article on the "reputable" www.news.com.au and take it as fact.....at work in the lunch room one of my office workers jokingly blamed the rising prices of groceries on the "bloody immigrants"....so articles like this dont help at all....

what beggers belief is the number of people who are writing in agreeing with this nonsense

for what its worth my reply


complete and utter nonsense
house prices in the uk have gone up exactly the same amount ie on average by 187% over the last ten years
