    I’ve always wondered why people from immigrant communities tend to be from the left? Most english people seem to be centre-right which is I suppose why we avoided the madness that enveloped Europe 70 odd years ago

    Do you know over 90% UK PMs from immigrant family

    Keep on making it up. Your poisonous spite is rather pervasive. You’re far from a majority in saying that we were on the wrong side of the “madness” in Europe 70 years ago, and the right is far from a majority in itself.
