The benefits of mass immigration depends on the composition of migrants. If they are all billionaires who then decide to pay their tax here it’s great.
If they are all impoverished and have to claim Housing Benefit, Tax Credits, don’t speak English, bring children with them, are ill, and bring bombs and nerve gas with them, it’s not so good.
It doesn’t matter one way or another whether they are Moslems.
Donald Trump plainly is fraud, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t better than the measly or dangerous alternatives on offer. The same applies to Margaret Thatcher’s ‘bestiality’.
I don’t think Jeremy Corbyn would have been in favour of Suez, and we know for certain he was against the Falklands War because he said so at the time.
He’s also in favour of buying a replacement to Trident whilst telling the world be will never use it, ‘investing’ more in defence equipment and manpower whilst telling the world he will never use them, and campaigned and voted to stay in the EU.
He’s also in favour of a ‘United Ireland’, regardless of whether the people on either side of the border vote for it, although curiously not an Independent Scotland.
He will soon announce that he wants to stay in a Customs Union, and will order the Parliamentary Labour Party to vote accordingly.
So I myself find it difficult to discover any aspect of his ‘foreign policy’ I agree with.
In any case don’t think siding with the UK’s enemies regardless of who they are, what they are doing, or the consequences of doing so, counts in itself, as a ‘foreign policy’.

If they were all billionaires, it wouldn’t be mass immigration, but I take it your point is that you would prefer only immigrants who are financially-capable. Personally, I don’t care if the immigrants who come here pave the streets with gold, can play the piano and have average IQs of 150. Most of us don’t actually want them at all, be they rich or poor, capable or not, it’s just that most people are too frightened to say so publicly. For the most part, it is people like you that we hear from in public on the issue, because you have views that will not be censured by the authorities, albeit I note you are somewhat sceptical on the point.
