Our correspondent tells us this story ...

I bought a bird feeder, hung it in my back garden and filled it lovingly with seed. It was indeed a beautiful bird feeder. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.

But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the bird shit. It was everywhere; on the patio, the chairs, the table .. everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. Others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill the feeder when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even sit in my own back garden any more. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ... quiet, serene with no-one demanding their rights to a free meal.

Now let's see ...

Our government gives out free food, subsidised housing, free medical care, free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the immigrants came in by the millions. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing five or more families; you have to wait six hours to be seen by a doctor in an emergency room because it is filled with immigrants'; your child's class is now falling behind other schools because more than half the class doesn't speak English.

Official notices now come in a 32 languages; support line operators speak to me in English I struggle to understand, and people waving flags other than the Union Jack are constantly demonstrating in the streets - demanding more rights and liberties for themselves.

Its just my opinion but ... maybe, just maybe, it's time for the government to take down the damn bird feeder.

Editorial comment: This story has been adapted from the original American thoughts but it is still very appropriate to modern day Britain.
