Re: "British Asylum Scandal Undermining Elite Immigration Enthusiasm," by David Orland

From: A British Cockle Cognoscente

The locals still pick cockles and have been doing so for many generations. The reason that the Chinese were the only ones on the sands when the tides came in and drowned is that the people in the area know the time of tides and the weather, so they knew it was too dangerous to be out.

Nowadays, there is a lot of money to be made selling cockles because they are considered a delicacy. Because of this, gangs have started to descend upon Morecambe and strip the beds of all they can get. This has been happening so much that the locals are very worried about the damage to the cockle beds. The gangs are usually comprised of illegal aliens.

So in this case, illegals are NOT filling jobs the locals do not want but ENDANGERING the livelihoods of the locals.

David Orland replies: I reported on the basis of early reports of the death of 19 Chinese illegals in Lancashire's Morecambe Bay that the Chinese were "truly doing work the locals wouldn't."

This turns out to be false.  A sadly familiar story.  I stand corrected.
