I despair, I really do

From a poll carried out for today's Sunday Times:

40% of people did not feel Britain had benefitted from immigration in any way. 88% agreed that immigrants unable to speak English or unwilling to integrate were creating discomfort in British communities, 93% thought people coming to live here permanently should be required to learn English.
From UK Polling Report.

It's the 40% I particularly despair of, but all of the figures tell me that the previous government did a god-awful job of selling immigration, and has been effectively encouraging the BNP.
