I watched hardtalk on the bbc last night. Stephen Sakur talking to a polish EU MP. He said that England is now seen as member of the public looking in through the window of a private club and wanting to use the facilities without paying the fees. He nailed it.
Allow me to expand.
Half of England is a member of the public looking in through the window of a private club and expects to use the facilities for free by birth right.
Most of them don't have the fees anyway, but if they did, they still won't pay. It should be free. If it isn't free, it's someone else's fault. Always.
It doesn't matter if others pay the fee, as long as they don't have to. However, they maintain they have just as much right to use the facilities for free as those who pay.
Immigrants should pay double to use the facilities, despite owning the facilities, building the facilities and running the facilities.
My attitude is much the same as my immigrant neighbour.
