WHY? - A BIG QUESTION FROM A SMALL ISLAND

With a history both bloody and baronial

And foreign ventures condemned as colonial,

Excuse me if I seem somewhat dumb here

But WHY do so many want to come here?

(and do!)

I have this sort of conversation with friends and we come to our own conclusions ..
Language, tolerance, opportunity etc. However, we are too obliging for our own good resulting in unsustainable levels of immigration, which in turn provided the impetus for Brexit.

It would be good to hear from immigrants to get their take on this.

I started writing this tongue-in-cheek but I think some truths might have unconsciously snuck in also. You would know more about this MC

They want to come to England
The brochures say it's great
A land of milk and honey
On your arrival wait

Don't worry 'bout the politics
Bit wonky, but who cares
There's plenty space for everyone
Your pad has got x stairs

Nothing like the hovel
That you are fleeing from
Some homeless might be on the street
But they are friendly, Poms
