Back at you mate. You and your family are a walking, talking case study of how well migration can work.

So many of the world’s problems stem from our need to define ourselves by deciding who we are not, by drawing arbitrary lines around the geography on a map and pretending there’s something inherently and irrevocably different about the community of people either side of the line.

Your family and mine belong to a community called “Humanity”. I bet it’d have a good football team if we could find someone/thing to play against.
