We have an aged population, not ageing. We need immigrants, we need a birth rate. We cannot afford to wage war on mothers with our benefits system or seek to use our benefits system to limit the birthrate, we cannot afford the drop in immigration that will come with our geo political future. We cannot afford waging war on immigration and benefits to be at the centre of political debate.
P0litical reality and actual reality are going to have to meet at some point. Reality always bites eventually.
