Hollie McNish spoken word on immigrants.

England is facing a bit of problem with its residents’ attitudes towards immigration. Namely, the Brits don’t want more immigrants. You can read more about why not in this Economist article: “Immigration into Britain: You’re not welcome“. But there are good reasons for foreigners to move to England. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) put out a report summarized in “Immigrants: Better than billed,” which states that England is a far better location to immigrate to than many others. But still people are resistant to this change. Below is a wonderful spoken word piece by Hollie McNish that I’d like to share with you all about the problem. Because sometimes the mathematics of economics is not as clear cut as it seems and

“because sometimes two times two is much much more than four.”

WARNING: McNish is not shy about swearing. This video contains adult language.
