The way people like you describe "creeping globalism" as though it's a "thing" that can be contained and managed never fails to amuse me.

When will you realise it just isn't. It is simply a reflection of an ever-changing, ever evolving world. Some would call it progress but not all change brings instant benefits. It sometimes takes time for the good to take precedence over the bad and for evolution to work it's magic.

The global economy is real. It's an unstoppable tide which cannot be avoided. You either adapt to it or be swamped by it.

Politicians who use promises of protecting people from the impact of globalisation as their ladder to power are the worst kind of confidence tricksters. Trump being the most obvious recent example.

There is no need at all to assume that either our culture or sovereignty will be damaged by globalisation. We just need to ensure we prepare effectively and assimilate any of our new citizens. Welcoming them, teac ofhing them and not ostracising them is what is required and is actually what is very effectively being done. Often quietly and without any fuss.

The short term floods of refugees and/or economic migrants are a difficult and probably insolvable problem that can only be mitigated but never eradicated. It's not really a result of globalisation but more a consequence of wars and poverty. Some level of containment is the best we can hope for which demands a common approach and is another argument for us to have remained a member of the EU.

How much immigration does China and Japan take, would they allow their cultures to change. Please answer honestly.

The honest answer is I don't know the figures so would need to research but raw figures don't tell the whole story, do they?

Every country's circumstances are different. Their history and location makes a difference. On top of that English is the second language of so many people, so we are a natural target. Japan has much more immigration than you might imagine. They are short of lower level workers and have been quietly accepting people for quite some time. I wouldn't have thought China has had a need but as their economy is growing so fast and the birth rate declining whether that remains true is unknown.

The remark of mine that you highlighted was though about globalisation and not immigration, so I don't really see the direct link.
