Migrants ‘bring dysfunctional cultures to rich countries’ claims Government adviser

MIGRANTS from poorer nations “bring their dysfunctional cultures to developed countries”, a Government adviser has claimed.

Sir Paul Collier, who advises the Department for International Development, warned that increased immigration eroded social cohesion and called for stricter migration controls to be adopted by Britain.

The professor of economics at Oxford University urged newly-arrived migrants in the UK to retain links with their countries of origin so that returning home was easier.

“I’m not advocating forced repatriation but there is a clearly a need…for some people to help build [their home] society,” he said.

Sir Paul, who also advises the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, insisted that migrants did not have the right to live anywhere in the world.
