Trotting out myths on immigration
Published 03/02/2011 | 05:00
SO, Robert Sullivan, (Letters, February 1) believes that Irish people are leaving our shores, while non-nationals are still arriving. He uses his own eyes and ears as a measure, tested against his memory of last year's experiences with shop assistants and hotel service etc.
I don't believe his 'analysis' (sic) does anything for the debate and his opinion is untestable as he has reached his own conclusions, while not trusting other sources.
However, I am thankful that he didn't agree with one of the other mantras surrounding the immigration/emigration argument -- that we export our brightest and best, while importing troublesome and malignant members of other societies and cultures.
