I am always amazed when people who rarely contribute to their local community express outrage when they feel their own livelihood may be threatened.

I am sure the new residents of the Grand Ocean Hotel will require the services of taxi drivers and pre-schools. Would local cab-drivers refuse their fares?

Would local pre-schools refuse their children? I think not and certainly hope not. This would be overt discrimination.

We have plenty of home-grown local white hooligans who will no doubt show impressionable asylum-seekers how to commit crime and get away with it.

These youths are the resident local community role-models who every week smash the glass in phone boxes, sit in cars dealing drugs and joyride around the area putting lives at risk.
