Nigel Farage is running out of things to blame on immigration.

From The Daily Telegraph:

Britons are so ill at ease with levels of immigration in their towns that their children do not play football with their neighbours in the streets, Nigel Farage has said.

Had he said that there are some small parts of the country where women get hassled for wearing western clothing, fair play, that is true, but this is just being silly.

It's all the immigrants making computer games and social media.

Has he blamed climate change on immigration yet, or is it the other way round?

TS, I thought it was hipsters (mainly white) in east London?

B, hehe, good one. It's actually the Lefties who say that third world people are worst affected by Catastrophic Climate Change and hence they are all flooding over here. Or will do at so me undefined point usually a few years hence.

I was referencing the story about kids not playing outside enough ;)

East London? That's what the BBC will keep telling you because they keep banging on about Silicon Roundabout and ignoring all the other areas of the country writing software (in their normal London-centric way). You can put a games development company almost anywhere, and so most people do.

Immigrants can't be white?
