humans have evolved to reject other culture, if they hadn't we wouldn't have different nations and different faiths
Evolution is not driven by the brain check out MRSA
, societal evolution depends entirely upon cooperation between groups who have developed a solution to their environment.
Consider the Neanderthal:) they became extinct because they didn’t interact, exchange ideas and so on. The big ladybird book of evolution doesn’t mention this because it’s pitched for children.
The exchange of ideas, trade and so on are essential for the development of societies that means migration.
The demographic problem in a nutshell
Overall economic growth will also be hampered by a decline in the number of new consumers and new households. When developed countries’ labor forces were growing by 0.5 percent to 1.0 percent per year, as they did until 2005, even annual increases in real output per worker of just 1.7 percent meant that annual economic growth totaled 2.2 percent to 2.7 percent per year. But with the labor forces of many developed countries (such as Germany, Hungary, Japan, Russia and the Baltic states) now shrinking by 0.2 percent per year and those of other countries (including Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece and Italy) growing by less than 0.2 percent per year, the same 1.7 percent increase in real output per worker yields only 1.5 percent to1.9-percent annual overall growth. Moreover, developed countries will be lucky to keep productivity growth at even that level; in many developed countries, productivity is more likely to decline as the population ages.
Add to that medical costs and it’s difficult to see how the situation can be reversed.
Having people jet in as a solution to the problem is to misunderstand the problem. Monies earned will simply leave the country thus the migrant model you propose will not benefit the country. What you need is the spending power to stay and that means people stay.
the population falling in the UK is a good thing, the island is over crowded
The declining population (without migration) is the wrong kind unless you want a nation of poor pensioners.
Your linked article is an exercise in spiteful, conspiracy nonsense. The author selectively quotes a former government advisor to suggest that there is a secret plan to end Britishness. I cant take that seriously.
Are you against migration in both directions?
