WE need to allow in a lot more immigrants, get them working, get them paying taxes. WE could also, oh, I don't know, join the European common market, ease trade and travel controls, increase our GDP, etc, etc.

Nice to see Starmer actually broaching the subject for a change. Every long journey starts with the first step.
Sweet Jesus Marvo, we need to get our own working first, we’ve tried the EU it was a disaster controlled by unelected drunks, FACT.

Spot on. There's plenty of sectors crying out for people.
Care homes is the obvious example. Your elderly relative is being denied the care she deserves because the person that could do that job is being denied access thanks to your xenophobia.

Talking of immigration there’s a disgraceful stat, in the 2021 census there were more people identifying as English in Melbourne than Australian. Send the buggers back!

We allow far too many 18 year old's to go to University who aren't academic enough to benefit from the education provided. Many of those individuals have aptitudes/skills that lie elsewhere. The vast sums of Student Debt being written off as unrecoverable are proof of this. These students should be filling the available vacancies in the economy (Care Homes is a great example in this respect - some basic training and a wonderful attitude to the residents are key skills). They are wasting three years of their lives achieving very little when they could be earning decent money. The impact of less academically gifted students going to University has also significantly reduced standards of degrees and the benefits previously derived from following them. If you work in the sector this is all very obvious.

With crime on the increase it's where we send all the convicts.

I went into town centre on Friday for the first time in ages. The dynamic was 'interesting', I'm not sure how I felt but for the first time it definitely didn't feel like home.

A lot of people attending university and doing degrees that only qualify them for flipping burgers think they leave with a degree when actually all they leave with is a receipt for their student loans.

I no longer visit the town centre. Too much chance of being subjected to rhythm and harmonies from feral choirs roaming the streets.

Lazy joke about ‘poles’ in there.
I’m not sure a vibrant town centre exists anywhere in the UK at the moment.

Shrewsbury was very nice the last time I was there - not that long ago (within the last year).

As this forum is populated almost entirely by old men the concept of 'town centre' is being judged as it was in the previous century. Most people do not shop there as they used to, they go on the internet or to retail parks. They do not seek entertainment there, they gawp at screens and order food deliveries via robots. They don't meet their mates there, they swap messages on social media. The town centre is no longer a focus, it is just the middle of a conurbation. The only towns that still have a semi-thriving 'centre' are generally quaint tourist havens. The world has moved on so either a new role has to be defined or it needs to be accepted that they are useful as a meeting place for the disenfranchised.

A lot of that is so true.
There are a lot of us who still view things in the sepia tinted world of an age gone by, when summers were always sunny and winters were snowy, which will never return.
